OELVE !N EARTH FOR SALT
Work of Mining .Most indispensable
Material Has Resulted In Creation
of Remarkable Caves.
What is the greatest mineral treas
ure of the earth? Coal? Iron?
Gold? No, just common salt For
gold, iron &nd»cool substitutes may
be found, but without salt life would
be impossible. In some countries
it is formed from the sea, notably
at Alvarado, near San Francisco.
There tracts of low-lying land are
flooded with sea water, which rap
idly evaporates in the intense heat,
14vitfg the frrine behind in pans, to
be harvested and carried to the re
fineries. Open-air salt fanning i*
hopelessly\jnpracti cable in Britain,
for the simple reason that Gld Sol
cannot be dependld upon. Conse
quently, the salt in the beds at
Droitwich and Northwich has to be
recovered by mining and pumping'
Beneath the latter town there is a
massive chamber, 17 acres in area
by 17 feet in height, which haa been
produced by excavating salt The
ground upon whibh the town is built
is steadily caving in, the skin of
soil and rock, 124 feet thick, upon
which the buildings are resting,
proving too weak to support them.
Of course, as most people know, the
most amazing salt mine in the-yorld
is at Wieliczka, Poland, wiih its
magnificent cathedral, crucifix,
altar, pulpit and statues of saints,
t magnificent ballroom, -bewildering
lay-out of broad streets, restaurant,
railway station, and other features
incidental to every surface colony,
but all-in salt. '

USE OP CARBORUNDUM. ~~
Carborundum, the artificial sub
stitute for emery, which is said to
rival the diamond in hardness, is'
used; because of its extraordinary
resistence to heat, as a coating for
the interior of furnaces. Finely
powdered and made into a paste, it
is applied with a brush, like paint
to the brick lining.
It is said that a layer only two
millimeters thiek will protect the
bricks from the effects of the high
est temperature that is ever pro
duced in ordinary furnace combus
Carborundum is itself a product
of .the electric furnace, being com

BIRDS MUST BE PROTECTED
Without the Native Songsters Suceesa
ful Fight Could Not Be Waged
, Against Insect*.
One of the most valuable assets
our nation has is Its native birds.
Too much cannot be said or written
in their favor. Destroy them and
in a few years the injurious insects
will have multiplied to such an ex
tent that trees will be denuded of
their foliage, plants and crops can
not be produced.
There are more than 1,200 species
of our native birds, and millions of
individuals* As a result of the ex
amination of more than 50,000
stomachs of birds, they established
beyond s reasonable doubt that buds
m at economic rslo*, first in eat
(Rt Ml igsgt* tMr ftp «pl
larvae. Second, in eating the seed*
of noxious weeds. Third, in devour
ing field mice and other small ro
dents that injure the crops, and
fourth, in acting aa scavengers.
While the economic valde of birds
should be .kept in mind the esthetic
value should also be considered. Man
doee not live by bread alone. We
should protect them for their grace
ful forms, their charming beauty,
their delightful melody and their
joyous activity.—Thrift Magaiine.
- TO INVESTIGATE MEDICINES.
The British minister of health has
i appointed a committee to advise on
legislative and administrative

means, j Some of the most distin
guished professional people of Great
Britain have been' named on the
committee, which will consider in
the first instanoe the report of a se

considered that navigation was then

because of his desire for booty. The
Peloponneaian chiefs were moved by
the relationship of a chief of Argon
to une of the Theban princes. The
Peninsula of Peloponnesus, tlie in
