What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

NEAT PIECE OF MECHANISM Clock in San Diego, Calif., So Adjusted as to Tell the Time in Many Lands. There is a wonderful clock In San Diego, Calif., which tells the time in all nations at the Bane- moment. That Is to say. It gives the time In nearly a score ef ie principal cities of the world. It has tiNenty dials, foty of them four feet In diameter awl - the rest smaller ones oti the faces of the larger ones. •It also gives the hour, minute and second of San Diego time and the day of the week and day of the month. It Is twenty-one feet high, and is conaidered by ninny to be the largest and best -built street clock any- where in the United States. The master clock is inclosed in plate glass at the bottom of the ped- estal, and the intricate parts and coin- plicated action are plainly visible. It was made in one shop, and cost $3,000. Fifteen months were required to con- struct and finish It. The jeweling is of very fine tourmaline, agate, jade and t o paz.

TRACTORS USED IN LOGGING Have Displaced Ancient Methods as the Mahogany Fields Are Be- coming Depleted. Tractors are being used in Increas- ing numbers in the mahogany industry In British Honduras, according to a report to the Department of Commerce from Consul Early, Belize. For over :!00 years there has been a more or less successful exploitation of the ma- hogany and cedar forests by means of primitive although expensive meth- ods, but with the depletion of easily accessible timber more modern meth- ods of logging are required for profit- able exploitation. The result has been an increase in the use of tractors for hauling logs. The largest mahogany contractor in British Honduras has invested nearly $100,000 in tractors manufactured In the United States during the present mahogany season. With the use of about seventy tractors this operator expects to get out about 5,000,000 feet board measure. Several other compa- nies are also using tractors. It is es- timated that about seventy-five trac- tors have been imported in the past twelve months for hauling logs. A Wrong View. Prof. F. E. Wolfe, the farm expert of the University of Nebraska, said at a recent dinner: \Farmers don't go in enough for co- opera:ion and tractors, and, In short, the modern method. . These things mean cheaper production and larger profits, but too many farmers are like Dingus. \ 'Farm products cost more and more all the time,' a city chap com- plained to Dingus one day. \'Yes the old fellow answered. 'Tien a farmer's supposed to know thV botnnicel names of the crops he plants and the pharmaceutical names of the fertilizers that grow the crops he plants, and the entomological names of the insects that are killed by the fertilizers that grow the crops he plants—why, naturally somebody's got to foot the bill.'\ Traveling Such a Bore. Transcontinental traveling may be- come a bore, even to a miss of five. Betty Jean Thatcher of Los Angeles, age five, is visiting her aunt and uncle, Mr. and Mrs. T. J. Moore, in Ruskin place. Mother and daughter got oft the Los Angeles train in Chicago en route, and mother started toward the...In- dianapolis train. Betty, travel -worn, expressed herself: \Oh do we have to get on another train! Can't we get on something else?'—Indianapolis News. Groundless Fear. \People are worried about having wireless aerials about their homer when these big electrical storms come,\ said 'a Detroit radio engineer, \but It really amounts to nothing. They never remember they also have telephone wires running into their houses, and they are theoretically more dangerous than the wireless aerial, because they are strung over a much greater space along the streets than the ordinary aerial.\ A Natural Query. \Aaron A. Piffer has had to sell hin dry goods store and move to the city,\ related the landlord of the tavern at Tornhicken. \lie made money in a modern way here, ever since he started twenty years ago. But about six months ago he married a handsome young second wife. Well, she said she preferred death to living in a small town like this.\ , \But returned a hypercritical guest, \couldn't she have enjoyed both privileges by remaining here?\ • This is the Time of year That you Need a new Suit.

PECK CO. FINE SENSE Of PSYCHOLOGY David Surely Will HaN• to Be Cred- ited With a Deep Knowledge of Human Nature. An Indianapolis woman tells the following story: \The family was spending the sum- mer in Brown county in the most won- derful log cabin. The immense, rough- hewn logs told of pioneer days and even now the spirit of dreams and of rest pervaded the place. From early morning till early evening hundreds of birds took turns in singing of the wild loveliness. \The sheer beauty of it so charmed us that we were oblivious to the crudity of our practical makeshifts and settled down to living as we found it.. \One of our findings was that the bathing facilities, although adequate, were primitive. A galvanized iron tub stood in a corner of the immense porch, quite sheltered by the woods and an end of the cabin, but not so well protected from family intrusion. A bath was a game of catch -as -catch - can. \David had arisen very early, filled his tub from the kitchen pump and was enjoying a relaxed sense of se- curity, when he heard the gentle thud, thud, on the stairs above, which could mean none other than the foot- steps of tile six -year -old sister. We believe David is destined to become' a leader of men. Nothing but a deep understanding of human reactions could have inspired him. Raising his voice td the n'th power he called out: 'Don't look! Don't look! Ind don't look to see why not!'\ HONOR RESTORED TO FAMILY Earl of Mar and Kollie Allowed to Reetime Offloe Which His An- cestor Had Forfeited. After a lapse of 205 years, the office of hereditary keeper of Stirling castle, the ancient residence of the Stuart kings, has been restored by King George to the earl of Mar and Kellie. This office was conferred on an ances- tor of the present earl in the year 1870 and held by the family, with one break, until 1715. The then earl took sides with the Stuarts and, being de- feated at Sheriftmuir, was deprived of his title. At the ceremony of restoration the earl presented his royal warrant of office to the military commander of the castle, and received in return the key on a red velvet cushion. Taking over the key, the earl said that King George had forgiven the act which had deprived the Erskine family of an honor highly prized by it, and which had now been reetored.--Ohris- tlan Science Monitor. \Bat -Wing\ Airplane, Builders of the \batwing\ airplane designed the craft to overcome the re- sistance of strata, wires and fuselage that in the usual type of machine coo - sums almost three-quarters of the en- gine power. The improved design is a great double -chambered aerofoil that terminates at right and left in the con- ventional ailerons and that tapers in the rear to a tall that ham the usual elevator and rudder. The aerofoil • nteseur, 100 feet trAnitiltiait_ag4 . • swells In Die front to a IhIckifiss seven feet. In that bulge is a cabin SO feet long, eight feet wide and six feet in height. This plane is an in- ternally trussed cantilever structure, covered with wood veneer so tough that the wing surfaces can be walked upon.—Washington Star. Understanding Dimmed. An intoxicated man was ejected from a downtown motion picture show. The manager accompanied him to the door. \Don't you ever come into this the- ater again in this condition,\ the man- ager said. The intoxicated man looked at the ground in a puzzled, yet reflective way, and then asked, hesitatingly: \Which condition?' — Indianapolis News.
