Barge Whistle" Calls Birds.
A striking example of wildblrd In
telligence has been observed on the
Panama canal In connection with the
underwater blasting that Is carried on
there. A barge has been especially
equipped for drilling blast holes below
the water and depositing charges in
them. When a blast is ready the craft
moves off to a safe distnnce, and be
fore setting off the dynamite the barge
whistle Is blown several times to warn
all vessels In the vicinity. Instantly
numbers of wild birds may be seen
coming from all directions, says Popu
lar Mechanics Magazine, the reason
being they have learned that many
dead and stunned fish rise to the stir-
face of the water following each ex
plosion. To them this particular
whistle Is like a dinner gong. More
remarkable still, they readily distin
guish between this whistle and others.
Canal workmen and natives also share

Effect of French Language.
A writer In Scribner's Magazine
speculates at some length on the ef
fect the French language will have on
our own when the soldiers come back.
He says: "One of the most prolific
sources of new words In a language Is
an attempt to name new Ideas. Amer
ican soldiers In France will absorb
many new Ideas from their contact
with the French and British; there
will be many new shades of meanings
for Ideas denoted by old words. To
express these the men will inevitably
adopt French words or use English
words with a new shade of meaning.
I have not ret collected any examples
of this; but It must take place, and
oue who watches the literature that
follows the war will see many exam
ples, if they are not observed before."

Interest Paid On Money Bor
rowed to Build First
Bridge Large Sum
Tho city of Salem is paying this year
tho sum of $19U0 for interest aloi.e on
bonds issued for the first and second
bridges across the Willamette river. Of
this amount $901) is for interest on the
first bridge, erected in 1886 and flOUO
for interest on bonds for the building of
tho second bridge, built in 1890.
Tho first bridge across the river at
Salein was completed in October of 1880
and the city issued $30,000 bonds with
which to pay its share of the cost. Un
til April, 1915, not a dollar had been
paid of this indebtedness of $30,000 in
curred in 1886. For more than 28 years,
tho city had been an annual interest of
This interest amounting to $42,750 is
not very far from the original cost of
the bridge.
In October of 191-1 it was voted by
tho city council to convert this $30,000
bridge indebtedness into serial refund
ing bonds, to be paid af" the rate of
$3,000 a year. The first payment was
made April 1, 1915, reducing the indeb
tedness to $27,000. Each succeeding
year since then, a $3000 bond has been
paid off, until now the indebtedness ot
the city on the 1886 bridge is $18,000.
Bytho paying of $3,000 a year, the in
terest account on this first bridge has
been reduced $150 a year. Hence for
the year beginning with April of 1918,
with $18,000 still due, the city will pay
$900 interest, as tho bonds draw, five
per cent per annum.
The last payment on the 1886 bridge

The Kaiser's Shadow

One Case of Courtship That Was Con
ducted Along the Strictest of
Business Lines.
Everything was strictly business
with August Rinnlek. A sign on his
Jesk said : This is my busy day," and
a sign above his desk said : "There are
a quarter of a million words in the
English language. Be brief."
He regarded his office force merely
as machines of varying degrees of ef
ficiency, and it was therefore several
months before he realized the luscious
physiognomy and many virtues of Miss
Perch, his stenographer.
But, with August Rlnnlck, to think
was to act, and, the very afternoon on
which he dually realized, he summoned
Miss Perch into his office.
"Miss Perch," he said, "take let
ter." And he dictated as follows :
"My deaf Miss Perch: It has lately

So Adulterated That They Were Not
Even Accepted In England as
Value In Metal.
In 1908 the Independent state of Hy
derabad, India, obtained a modern mint
and called in the coins that had been
current up till that time. Tfie old mint
of Hyderabad was little more than a
coppersmith's shop In which scrap cop
per of all sorts was melted up, bar
rnered Into plates, cut up into very
rough approximations of one tola In

er in a toll held in tongs. A blow from
a sledge hammer mnde the Impression.
There was no regularity in shape,
weight or stamping, nor was the metal
uniform in quality.
The mint could not furnish supdIIcs
fast enough, and licenses were Issued
to coppersmiths to assist In production.
Naturally, - the Scientific American
states, nonllcensed persons began to
manufacture, and adulteration with
lead was so flagrant that when several
tons of these coins were sent to Eng
Jand as old metal they were returned
on account of their impurity and wer
finally worked up Into brass for locul
consumption. A "dub," If held In the
flame of a spirit lamp, would before It
reached red heat begin to discharge
very fine jets resembling mercury ; the
lead, having reached Its fusing point,
burst from the copper with a force In
dicating a very high internal pressure.
Guard Your Breath.
"A man's breath," says Popular Scl
ence Monthly, "is often a betrayer of
secrets. He may have been out late,
sitting up with a sick friend, but
when he reaches home his loving wife
at once opens up her battery of re
proaches. "Now conies the news that two In
ventors In Osceola, Ark., have joint
ly invented a breath-guard of a new
pattern. It is said to be efficient, but
not In the manner you were thinking
of. It Is Intended to protect dentists,
barbers and physicians from Inhal
ing the germ-laden breath of their pa
tients or patrons. It consists of a
small curved shield of glass placed
so as to cover the nostrils and held In
position by. a spring clip gripping tho
partition wall of the nose on tho In
side. Many diseases are directly com
municated through the Inhalation of
tainted nlr, and a device of this kind
should be a boon to professional peo
ple who are compelled, by the nature
of their duties, to be In close proxlm-,
lty to those whom they serve."
The English government, after long
discouraging suttees, by the agency of
Lord Wllllan Bentlnck formally abol
ished them In December, 1829, but
they have since occasionally taken
place. The wife of the son of the
Itajah of Beygoon thus perished in
June, 1804, and several wives of Sir
Tung Bahadoor, minister of Nepaul,
on March 1, 1877. One voluntary sut
tee occurred nt Poena, In November,
1800, and It has continued to the pres
ent time In Isolated parts of India,
for even as late as 1005 several per
sons who took part In a suttee In Be
har were condemned to penal servitude.
