DOING GOOD WORK
There seems little connection
between the Salvation Army
and tho paper famine. Yet the
industrial homes of the Salvation
Army annually salvago upwards
of 100,000,000 pounds of waste
paper to help relievo the short
age. One newspaper publisher,
investigating the work of tho
Army waste paper harvesters,
declared tho salvaged paper sent
to paper mills last year would
print ono edition of newspapers
witn a comuincd c rcu at on o
1,250,000,000 copies, or supply
a nowsnaper oi y.iiM.i57 c r
culatlon with paper for a year,

zance of tho work of redeeming

of tons of paper are sorted and

Beggars Who Float In Dowli.
In various countries durlnc pnst

China Is probably trjo only country
In which bowls carry bcRRnrs. Tho
bowls nro boats, round In shape, nntl
Inrjje cnouch to carry two bcRRnrs,
one of whom maneuvers tho craft be
side an Incoming steamship while the
other, usually an need Chinese woman,
does the hoggin from tho passengers,
sometimes making It easier for them
to contribute by reaching upwnrd with
n bag on tho end of n long pole. Tho

Leap Year Mlited.
Tho rule used to tell If n yonr Is,
or was, n leap year Is to dlvldo It by
tho llgurc 4. If It tuny be dono with'
out n remainder It Is generally sup
pesod to piovti that tho year Is n leap
year. This Is correct In respect of
all years save In tho caso of tho 100
years, that Is, tho beginning of n cen
tury, ns 1700, 1800, 1000. In tho.io
years the tost Is to dlvldo by 100. If
theso tests nro applied to the last 100
yearn we shnll find tho year 1000 Is
not dlvlvlblo by 400 nnd neither wan
tho year 1S00. Leap year occurred
every four yours after tho year 1800
until 1MK), but there whn no leap year
between 1700 and 1801 (n space of
eight years). Neither wan thero n
