1 am eighteen yrura

I don't aim to (all you ahoot our Job*.
You can read about our work In tba
bibor department re|x>rt*
But I do
aim to tell you about our Hlg Slater
and o f the thing* aha haa don« for ua.
" T o begin with, our fuetory towu
lan't a town at all. It ’a a huge haru
o f building! acock down In tha country
nineteen mllea from no whom. There
la a rallrond aiding, a atatlon tha size
o f a dry gooda box. seven farmhouam
and on« general atnr« and poatufllc«

hot tamale stand. And that'* all. No

" I waa one o f tba Brat carJmtd of
forty girl* that waa «flipped up from
Chicago. The factory waa swarming
with workmen potting In the meehln-
ery. and w « glrla couldn't begin wark
for a day or ao. eo » « begat, hunttng
placet to aot and eloep. Ttoti waa a
trifle that tha employment folk* hadn't
thought of. The workmen were sleep-
trig and eating In tha com that had
brought them there, hocked on the
aiding. Our only chance fo r bed* and
food waa with thoae »even fartnhouaea,
ao we marched atroight to the farmers'
wives and Baked for board and room,
Farm er«' W lvoo Hospltabls.
"1 w ill any that Uioaewotnon were kind
anti hospitable. Th ey fixed It up l>e-
tween them to feed ua forty glrla. mid
they gave ua good food too. But for
riMttna, that waa the (juration. They
could each "pare one room. Thut
meant Bleep live or alx In n room. Hut
right then along came the hoaa o f the
factory anil told ua the machinery waa
ready and he'd ex|iect ua glrla to work
double shifts, night and day.
’"H e wanted to make uae o f every
minute, you are. But that gave ua our
chance a* to aleeplng. We» fixed It up
with the farm folka that we'd work
double shifts and tdrep double shifts

would us<‘ a mom from eight at night
till six the next morning. Then they’d
hustle over to the fuetory. and the
three girls ivho'd been working all
night would take the room nml sleep
till afternoon. It wasn't any luxuri­
ous slumber, believe me. The farm
women had no few ahePts and pillow

And towels werp senrre ns dinnmnds

well, the general store kept yellow bar
soap, that kind that Is so full o f rosin
you rottld use It to calk n ship. But
w e made out till the next three car­
loads o f girls came rolling In. Then
w e went 'most distracted. Those |(oor
girls had to sleep In tents nnd In the
cars that the workmen had abandoned
by this time, and they were lucky If
they got n straw tick nnd n I I mket.

a savage land, given over to aavage

It 1» difficult to conceive that In the
mlat* o f antiquity this continent was

In the last rantury a grra| deal waa

the South African company did much
to add to our store o f knowledge.

ed the wonderful ruin« o f Zlmbuyo,
nearly 200 tulles due west of Bofala,
on the Indian ocean.
They have been attributed to tha
| Moors, the I’ hoonlrlana and tha Per­

I iclers that there were Inscription«,
which modern archeologists hava aet
out to decipher.
These structure« were reared o f
granite, hewn Into small blocks a lit­
tle larger thao a brick, and pnt to­
gether without mortar.
In all tho
j walla are seen two or three course«
of masonry, where the granite blocks
are Inserted In slgzag fashion.
There seems to be ao doobt that
they were erected as place» of de­
1 fense, and also for the smelting, stor­
ing snd protection o f gold, copper and
other metals.
On removing a quantity of tha sur­
face rubbish Inside, there waa found

were also remains o f slag, and other
evidences that the place had heenjised

ilized men would expect tv Bud In this
region, where the native« belong to
the lower stages o f hrrmga develop­
ment, are these great rock structures
j betokening the existence o f a former
civilization amid (heae »wild*.
| The natives have not even any tra­
dition as to the origin o f the ruins. <
There are many facts proving their
j great antiquity, and among them tha
circumstances that at one o f the great
ruins at Zlmhaye an Ironwood tree,
which was undoubtedly hundred* o f
years old, had risen through the wall
and split It.
One day a woman reporter noticed.
In the front window of a quaint little
collage, a service (tug proudly hearing
four stars.

persistent knocking, nnd so she went
next door to see what Information she
could collect In regard to the cottage

“ H ere," thought the young woman.

How European City Utilizes W ater
Power Which Otherwise Would Be
of No Value.
An eloctrlc-hentlng system which
utilize* power that would otherwise go
to waste has been (nstnlled In a school
In a southern European city. The ex­
isting hot-water pipe* and radiators
are connected with n well-insulated
water tank o f l.ltOO-gallons’ capacity.
In this reservoir electric resistances
arc built, and at night are supplied
with current which raises the w ater
to well above tile boiling point. Tho
cost i.i the curYiiit Is low because the
water power used to produce it nor»
mallj would go to waste. During the
day tli»» hot water i* allowed to circu­
late through the radiators, its vol­
ume being sullle nt to warm
rooms without u- ng more current.
