TELEPHONES FOR TOURISTS.
To Be Installed One Mile Apart on
the Lincoln Highway.
The Lincoln highway tourist across
Nevada is to have another conven
ience at his service. It is plannned to
run a double copper telephone wire
along the Lincoln highway from Salt
Lake to Ely, and thence to Reno.
Cut-in stations will be established one
mile apart along the way, and by
means of these stations no traveler
could ever become stranded at a great
er distance than a half mile from a
telephone station, from which he could
call for relief, A traveler will be able
to procure an instrument at either end
of the route by paying a small deposit
on it, just sufficient to Insure its re
turn in proper condition when he
reaches the station at the other end
of his Journey. Certainly the so-called
terrors of desert travel are rapidly
becoming shorn of their terrors.

Vic.ture.5ouc corner or meran
A MONO the many famous health
and pleasure resorts smoth
ered by the European war,
one of the most attractive Is
Meran. A favored garden
spot of earth, an ancient Roman out
post where legionaries stood guard
against northern barbarians and
where Caesars sought to regain their
dissipated health, Meran has main
tained through all its checkered history
a high reputation as a pleasure and
health garden, and as a resort for rank
and fashion, says the bulletin of the
National Geographic society. This pic
turesque Tyrolese city, banked around
by lesser Alps, has been a favorite
wintering place for wealthy Ameri
cans, a number of whom have pur
chased villas here and some of whom
have become permanent residents.
Considerably more than 10,000 guests
sought Meran each year, many, nomi
nally, for their health, but most for
the beauties of climate and surround
ings and for the light gayetles of the
fall and winter season.
The counts of Tyrol, the noble fam
ily from which the region took Its
name, long made Meran their resi
dence. The much decayed caBtle of
Tyrol, the original seat of the family,
overlooks the town, and the mountain
shelves and cliffs through the neigh
borhood are crowned with many other
ancient castles and fine chateaux.
Meran is the first town of the upper
Adlge valley. It Is 42 miles south
southwest of Innsbruck and 20 miles
northwest of Bozen on the Brenner
line. The rugged Kuechelberg lies
behind it and all the hills beside are
covered with miles of arcaded vine
yards. Delicious grapes and wine are
the town's most famed products. A
grape cure is one of the attractions of
the place, while the climate draws
many suffering from lung troubles.
Normally, Meran's season begins in
early fall and lasts through to the end
Italians Love Aqullela.
Aquileia, one of the first towns cap
tured by the Italians in their storm
across the Austrian borders at the
head of the Adriatic, stands foremost
among the Austrian Italian-speaking
possessions in the sentimental attach
ment of the patriotic sons of Italy.
Situated six miles back from the Adri
atic sea, at the edge of the lagoons,
In the Austrian province of Goerz and
Gradlsca, it was once a great and
flourishing seaport, at one time rank
ing as the second city of Italy. It
was, in those days, one of the mighti
est bulwarks of the Roman empire
against the pressing hordes of outside
barbarians, a city of "proud walls and
wide bespoken splendor." As late as
the end of the fourth century Auaonlus
placed it ninth on the list of the great
cities of the earth.
Today Aqullela is a mean, poverty
marked, dwindling fishing village,
with a few thousand inhabitants. The
Waterloo Bridge Haunted?
Waterloo bridge is a part of the
Thames which is said to be haunted.
It is not so very long since a more
than usually clear-sighted man went to
tho police with the information that
he had seen a woman jump from the
parapet of Waterloo bridge. He had
been crossing the bridge late one
night, when he bad noticed a woman
In black walking In front of him. Sud
denly be saw her making an appealing
gesture, but before he could reach the
woman she had disappeared. That
was ell. There was no splash follow
ing hor disappoaiance, and no result
came from t'ne search which was
made. Thcso who were familiar with
the history of the river said that the
man had soon tho gho3t of Waterloo
bridge the tragic woman In black, of
whom nothir.T in known, save that she
haunts the London "Bridge of Sighs."
Britain Needs Timber.
The demand for timber in Great
Britain Is so great, owing to the war,
that the export of this material from
Newfoundland, which has been prac
tically abandoned of late years, ta
wonderful structures of its heyday
have Berved for centuries as stone
quarries, and nothing now remains of
their fabulous splendor. Aquileia, re
gal city of the empire, and later great
seaport and industrial city, has van-
ished, In all likelihood for good. There
remains from its golden days merely
a heterogeneous mass of relics, statues,
mosaics, columns, friezes from its
parks and buildings; lamps from its
once famous factories, besides many
homely survivals and nicknacks.
Grave of Past Achievement.
Trieste, the great seaport of today,
is about twenty-five miles distant to
the southwest. All the marks of the
prosperity and importance of Aquileia
have fled to Trieste, in the east, and to
Venice, in the west. The once busy
harbor Is choked with silt and drifting
dunes, while rafts and fiBhing boats
are almost the only craft that now
thread the varying channels. The mod'
ern village, counting 2,300 people, is
unhealthy on account of Its rice fields
and is neglected and forgotten.
Aquileia is a grave of past achieve
ment and a much-weathered monument
of the world of the Roman age. Its
museum is rich in trophies of Roman
times and Its ancient cathedral and
the remains of the patriarch's palace
are its most eloquent concrete memo
ries. Aquileia, as is much of the north
ern and western coast of the Adriatic,
is a rich field for archeologists and
The city is said to have been colo
nized by the Romans as ar frontier
fortress against the Celts in 183 B. C.
In 168 A. D. Marcus Aurellus made it
one of the strongest fortified positions
in the empire. During Hadrian's reign
its population reached the 600,000
mark. Attila destroyed the city In
452 A. D., aud it never recovered its
greatness. Aquileia was great and
strong only throughout its Roman
history, when, during its prime, it
ranked immediately after the Eternal
city itself. Its fortunes were those of
the Roman world, and modern Italy,
looking back Over the gulf of centu
ries, feels Itself not only the descend-
ant, but also the heir of Latin Rome.

Care of Hatching Eggs.
Eggs to be used for hatching should
be gathered at least once a day. Twice
daily or oftener is better if there is
danger- of freezing or severe chilling,
or if they are liable to become muddy
from feet of hens or set on by broody
hens during the day. The egg is laid
for one purpose only: the hatching of
a chick. Help this purpose along by
taking proper care of the egg before
setting. The fresher the eggs are at
time of setting the better. However,
eggs can be kept ten to twelve days
before setting. When this is done
they should be kept in a cool, reason
ably dry place away from the sun's
rays and turned once dally. A temper
ature of 60 degrees to 60 degrees F. is
right for keeping the eggs. Avoid
keeping them many days, as the vi
tality of the living germ is lowered by
holding. Do not keep the eggs in a
temperature above 80 degrees P. Se

NEW FIGHTING FORCE
FRENCH ARMY OFFICERS EXPERI.
MENTINQ WITH EAGLES.
Send Big Birds Against Aeroplanei
Which They Fiercely Attack and
Turn Upside Down Must
An Interesting experiment, In view
of the fact that the world's armies
are now facing tho problem of how to
cope with the new force in warfare
the aeroplane, is being conducted by,
a number of French officers at Nice.
The idea, It seems, was suggested
by the fate of the famous aviator,
Rogers, who met death because a sea
gull flew against him and disturbed
his control of his machine. The offi
cers argued amongst themselves that
if a modest-sized bird such as the sea
gull could wreck an aviator, the pow
erful eagle could surely become a
terrific fighting and wrecking force in
the air. So, as Nice 1b but a few miles
from the Alpine home of the Swiss
eagle, six birds were Immediately put
Machines resembling aeroplanes In
shape, but supported by balloons, to
which were attached pieces of meat,
were sent up, and the eagles let loose.
With fierce cries and flapping of their
wings they attacked the aeroplanes
and tore the meat from them. In their
eagerness they fight one another, and
the aeroplane Is sometimes turned up
side down in their struggles. It is
inconceivable that any men in an aero
plane, even If there were three or four
of them, could retain control of their
machine In face of such an attack.
One after another the eagles attack
all the aeroplane balloons until they
are wrecked, and their trainers feel
certain that they will now attack
real aeroplanes with men in them with
the same ferocity.
How will the birdmen parry these
attacks? Suppose they carry revolv
ers or short repeating rifles; to shoot
a bird In the air is notoriously diffi
cult, but to shoot half-adoaen swoop
ing down and clawing at you all at
once, seated in a trembling aeroplane,
would be well-nigh an Impossibility.
The suggestion is made that fight
ing machines shall have round them
electric wires that will give the eagles
a powerful shock as they touch them.
To do this It will be necessary to car
ry a dry battery, and this will add to
the weight of the machine. The wires,
moreover, will increase the danger
and difficulty of guiding the aeroplane.
The aviator 1b likely to touch one of
the wires and lose control of his car,
with fatal result. But the bird-men.
will certainly have to find ways of
protecting themselves against the war
eagles. We may well ask: "What
Noise Killing Mankind.
Man's nerves and hearing apparatus
Were evolved in comparatively quiet
surroundings, to detect faint sounds
warning him of danger or of the pres

shock the system greatly In child

In time we might evolve a race im
mune to noise, but it can only be done
by killing off those who are most In
jured by it, and these nervous people
are often the very ones who are do
ing the most to advance civilization.
So the only thing to do Is to make the
environment fit for them and not kill
them as unfit for the environment.
The first step is to abolish unneces
sary bells, whistles and street cries.

Why Clocks Get Out of Order.
The reason why mantelpiece clocks
so often get out of order Is so obvi
ous that it is strange that attention to
it has not been drawn before. A
London clockmaker said:
"It is because mantelpieces are rare

telpiece is not placed In an exactly
horizontal position it Is sure to go
wrong. When the clock gains cr loses
because of Its slanting position, peo
ple regularly move the hands iorward
or backward, as the case may be, In
order to adjust it. Eventually the
clock's hands are moved about so
much that the mechanism gets out of
order and the clock refuses even to
