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.

Congress consists of two senators from each state. the smallest state as well as the largest, and a number of representatives, according to •popula- tion. The basis of representation, or member of inhabitants for a represen- tative, Is Axed by congress under etiell recurring census so as to secure ade- :mite representation for every state without making the house too large mil unwieldy. The Constitution of the United States, adopted in 1789, =aid the number of representatives sheuld not exceed one for every 30.000 of population, and as ilil census had vet oven taken, 30,000 was adopted as the ratio of. --representation awl time foriulation of the different states was estimated. By this process the first house of representatives consisted of • members. Since then congress has missed 13 apportionment nets, under 13 different censuses, chunking the basis mil repreaentation every time except onee. In 1800 and in 1810 the ratio was fixtWat one representative for 33,000 population. In 1820 the ratio was in- creased to 35,000. and it has been in- cr.n.4i1 every tenth year since till it Is now 211.877, while the membership of the house has increased from 65 to 495. Sip Oil Supply. Last year the United States pro. duced 341,800,000 barrels of crude oil, approximately 68 per cent of the world's consumption. In 1916 its share was about 65 per cent. A large part of the fuel oil used by the Brit- ish navy comes from Mellen. Last year Mexico produced 60,000,000 barrels, about 20,000,000 barrels over the out- put the year before. Russia in 1917, produced 70,000,000 barrels, a falling off of about 2,000,000 barrels front the 1916 production. In the -fluteli East Indies 14,000,000 barrels were pro- duced last year and 17,000,000 barrels the year before. Roumania in 1917 produced 11,000000c barrels as com- pared with 10,000,000 the year pre- vious. Most of the Roumaninn oil fields are DOW under control of Gem\ many.--iThe Pathfinder.

Walking in tight shoes generation .ifter generation is the cause of nearly 1,11 the foot An/utiles of civilized man, , he professor says. This comtttion, he , ays, has left but u single srrang toe on either foot, the others being in some ieasure atrophied. Frequent washing, trimming the toe halls and an avoidance of change from high to low heeled shoes are suggested as a means of obviating much foot trouble.

A new-born baby's pulse should beat from 130 to 140 times per minute; a yeer-old child's 115 to 130; a four teeu-year-old's AO to 90; an adult's from 70 to 75, and an aged person's from 60 to 75.—Woman's World.

Bunions are impoesi- hie, corns improbable, and other blemishes quite unlikely. *ea WRONG WAV It is short shoes that crumple up the toes, that force the toes against the end of the shoe with every step, and finally produce corns, bunions or other blemishes that disfigure and annoy for life.
