LIVE ON TEN CENTS A DAY.
Real enta at the Rusk n Colony in
Geo seta Are Economical.
While other people have been theor
izing, the Ruskinites of Georgia have
demonstrated by actual experience the
lowest possible daily cost for food for
their entire community. They have
solved the riddle of how to live at the
lowest cost. When forced to leave their
Tennessee home the colonists were
hard pushed, but they possessed stout
hearts and willing hands, and to-day
are on a fair road to prosperity. They
live and live well at an actual cost per
capita of less than 10 cents a day.
Everything tliey consume i bought
at wholesale, in large quantities, and
is cooked In the community kitchen.
In the community dining-room tables
are set for 300 people. Those who do
not wish to eat with the crowd are
given the privilege of purchasing com
pany stores and cooking it at home.
When vegetables are scarce these peo
ple are allowed 7 cents per capita a day;
that Is, 7 cents for each person, big,
little, old, young, sick or well. When
vegetables are plentiful the cash allow
ance is only 5 cents. As the commu
nity raises Its own vegetables, the ap
proximate cost is only about 2 cents
per capita a day, making the actual
cost of living at Ruskin from 7 to 9
cents a day for each man, woman and
The community dining-room is a
large room, 25 feet wide and 150 feet

CONTESTING FOR HONORS.
Chinese Undergo Kxamlnations While
In Their Closed Ceils.
The University of London a few
years ago admitted to Its initial exam
inations about 1,400 students and pass
ed one-half. There are four different
examinations Ln the Chinese university.
The first Is for the degree of "Budding
Genius," corresponding to our B. A.
The examination is held in every pre
fecture. The second Is for the degree
of "Promoted Scholar," or M. A., and
is held in each provincial capital. LL-Hung-Chang
has never advanced be
yond this degree. The third Is for "Fit
for Ofllce," a sort of D. C. L. or LL. D.
The fourth is for admission to the Han
lin academy, or "Forest of Pencils,"
which makes the successful scholar
one of the great men of the empire.
Each degree is open only to the men
who have won the lower degrees. The
lowest is open to anyone. "A man of
talent," as Dr. Martin says, "may
raise himself from the humblest ranks
to the dignity of viceroy or premier."
No land can be more democratic than
In each provincial capital is an exam
ination hall. It consists of long rows
of cells open at the end and Just large
enough to hold a scholar with his bed
ding, teapot and food. There are 12,000
cells In the Canton hall. A great wall
surrounds the grounds, and at the end
is the hall where the officials sit. The
candidates are all admitted at the same
time, assigned to their cells and the
gfc tes are sealed. If a student dies, as
often happens, his body Is put through
a small hole ln the wall. Each exam
ination lasts twenty-four hours. Then
the students are released for two days,
only to return for two more sieges. A
paper with blots or defacements is
thrown out. Such innocent questions
as this are proposed to them: "The art
of war arose under Hwang-Tl forty
four hundred years ago. Different dyn
asties have since that time adopted
different regulations ln regard to the
use of militia or standing armies, the
mode of raising supplies for the army,

men who pass these examinations are a

His Banjo a Barometer.
There is a young man about town
who is always prepared for all kinds
of weather. No matter If he attends
a function when the night is cloudless
and rain falls before he goes home, he
is always on hand with an umbrella,
much to the delight of the girl with
For a long time his secret remained
undisclosed, and he was looked upon
as a weather prophet who could give
points to the local bureau. However,
it Is no longer a secret, for the young
man confessed not long ago the reason
for his Invariably correct prognostlca
tion of nasty weather. He Is a very
fair banjoist, and It was noticed that
he always played on his Instrument
before going out at night When the
plaintive sounds wefe muffled, he never
neglected to take his umbrella, but Tf,
on the contrary, the sound was sharp
and clear he went without It.
The head, or sounding board, of a
banjo Is made of sheepskin, and in
damp weather it expands, and the head
comes tight as a drum. This is the
reason for his Invariable good luck In

Travels of a Blood Corpuscle.
Tbe mileage of the blood circulation
reveals some astonishing facts ln our
personal history. Thus it has been cal
culated that, assuming the heart to beat
sixty-nine times a minute at ordinary
heart pressure, the blood goes at the
rate of 207 yards in the minute, or sev
en miles per hour, 168 miles per day
and 61.320 miles per year. If a man of
84 years of age could have one single
blood corpuscle floating In his blood
all his life it would have traveled in
that same time 5,150,880 miles.
A smile g the reflection of a light
Among the uses recently found for
I aluminum is the soldering of iron rails
end to end in order to obtain a smooth,
! continuous track. Aluminum has the
' property of producing great heat In the
act of combining with oxygen. The
ends of the rails are placed together In
a crucible filled with a mixture of alum
1 inum and iron ore. The mixture being
fired, an intense heat results, and the
rails are firmly soldered together. This
Is said to be quite as efficacious as the
electric method of soldering.
The color and character of the walls
have much to do with the lighting of a
room. Recent experiments have shown
these percentages of reflection for dif
ferent wall materials: Black velvet,
0.4 per cent, black cloth 1.03 per cent,
black paper 4.5 per cent, dark-blue 6.5
per cent, dark-green 10.1 per cent, pale
red 16.2 per cent, dark yellow 20 per

I As is well known, some metals are
unsuitable for casting, while others,
like iron, can readily be cast In any
desired shape. The property of cast
ing well is said to depend upon wheth
.er the metal contracts or expands on
solidifying from the liquid form. Iron,
like water, expands in solidifying, and
hence the solid metal may be seen float
ing in the liquid Iron about It. The ex
pansion causes it to fill the die Into
which Is poured, and so It can be cast
easily. Gold and silver contract in

Is only In recent years that our knowl

made any real advance. By the labors
of a very few observers, one of whom,
Mr. Denning, may be said to have out

value and number of his results, we
know of many hundreds of radiant

On every side the Alps send down
livers, leaping from the rocks, and ln
the lower lands, especially on the Ital
ian side, spreading -out Into beautiful
blue lakes. Recently the stored-up en
ergy of these Alpine streams has been
brought under control. In many in
stances, for the production of electric
power. The river Adda at Paderno
already furnishes 13,000 horse-power,
and works are now under way on the
I river Ticino, below its point of issue
from Lake Maggiore, which will, it is
expected, furnish 12,000 effective horse
power to be distributed among a string
of manufacturing towns reaching down
into the plain of Lombardy. It was or
iginally Intended to send this power to
Milan, but all of It has been eagerly
' seized by the Intervening smaller
towns. The Alps are yet rich in unused
energy of this kind.

I chanlc, a man who had a vocation.
I He had with him a very little child of
about 4 or 5 years. I was watching the
affection which existed between those
1 two. I judged he was the grandfather,
perhaps. It was really a pretty ctiild,
and I was admiring her, and as soon
as he saw I was admiring her be began
to notice me.
"I could see his admiration of me In
his eye, and 1 did what anybody else
would do admired the child four times

times as much of his admiration.
Things went on very pleasantly. 1

MILLS ARE NEVER COINED.
They Have Always Been a Mere Figure
in the World of Finance.
"The mill in coinage exists jnly in
the school books used ln the primary
schools. It never has existed anywhere
else, and from the nature of things
never can," observed a leading finan
cial man the other day to a reporter.
"It Is a mystery to every one why It
was ever originated, for as a unit of
value It is only a fiction. There are no
mills, never have been and never will
be under the circumstances, therefore I
don't see why it is put in the books in
the primary schools, with the explana
tion that ten of them make 1 cent I

"Several weeks ago I was ln Portugal,
and I had decided to return direct to
Boston from Lisbon rather than to sail
ln the ordinary way to New York and
from there to Boston by rail. On ap
plying at a hotel for a room I asked,
as Is customary, what was the price.
The clerk answered 750 reis per day.
This was a new one on me, for, though
I had run up on a number of different
coins ln my day here and in various
parts of Europe, it was the first time
I had heard of a rel. Somehow I did
not like the sound of the word, and,
turning to another clerk, asked what
was the price of a first-class passage on
a good steamer from Lisbon to Boston.
He answered that it was-'80,000 reis,'
and seemed to be willing to send me
off on the next steamer. This necessi
tated my asking for an explanation,
and, as the clerk talked English as well
as I did, I asked him to put his reis
into American dollars and cents. This
he did by explaining that the prices
charged for a room, without board, was
75 cents per day, and that the steamer
fare was $80. This led on to a talk of
reis, which is the unit value of Portu
gal. In value it represents about the
same as a mill. The hotel clerks told
me that there were no reis as a matter
of fact in Portugal and never had been,
though all values were based on them
for a unit"

"It strikes me that you can't run a rail

And informed that he was careless in the

And the General Manager remarked: "I

So he called the section foreman, and he
said: "You careless cuss.

France is using the automobile in
practical ways for the public service.
The experiment in Paris of supplying
automobiles to the mall collectors and
carriers is already declared a success,
and now comes the news that ln the
French town of Alencon there is in ex
cellent working order an automobile
ambulance service. A motor qnadricy
cles coupled to an ambulance of the
Lagogne pattern. The motor man and
the doctor use the quadricycle, and the
patient is the sole occupant of the am
bulance. As the Alencon Hospital Is
for the benefit of the country far and
wide, the service is naturally managed
differently from the Paris ambulance
service. After a call is received It is
necessary to secure a doctor and travel
out in the country perhaps miles for
the patient. Hence the speed furnish
ed by mechanical rather than horse
power is most essential.
How French Voters Cast Their Ballots
In France voting Is by ballot The
persons who help in receiving and
counting the vote are volunteers drawn
from the ranks of the electors. Prior
to the oDenlne of the poll at each sta
tion the presiding officer unlocks the
urn provided for tne reception or ine
nnd satisfies those present that
it Is empty. He then locks it again,
places the key ln his pocket, and hands
a duplicate to one of his helpers, who
are termed assessors, xne poii is open
from 8 in the morning until 6 at night
and at the close the votes are counted
n the snot bv the volunteer helpers.
The result Is then forwarded to the
central bureau. London Mail.
