Cano sugar was produced by the
Chinese at a very remote epoch. In
western countries it was a morel
recent introduction. The Roman
writers l'liny, Varro and Lucian
at the beginning of our era barely
mentioned it. It was then known
by the name of Indian salt and
honey of Asia, Arabia or India. In
1090 crusaders arriving in Syria
discovered sugar cane, which be
came a favorite dainty of the sol
diers. During the following centu
ries the sugar cane was introduced
into Cyprus, the Nile delta, the
north coast of Africa as far a Gi
braltar, Sicily and the kingdom of
Naples. It reached Spain in the
fifteenth century and thence was
carried to Madeira and the Cana
ries. In 1CI4 the French imported
it into Guadeloupe and a little later
into Martinique and Louisiana.
The Portuguese introduced it into
5razil and the Fnglish into Ja
maica. Scientific American.
Looking For Bargain.
A young man who work3 in a
Chestnut street store wa3 invited to
his employer's home for supper last
night. The purpose of the invita
tion was to introduce the young
man to the employer's daughters.
After supper the old man said:
"Yes, I am proud of my daugh
ters and would like to see them
comfortably married, and as I have
made a little money they will not
go penniless to their husbands.
There is Mary, twenty-five years
old and a really good girl. I shull
give her $1,000 when she marries.
Then comes Hose, who won't see
thirty-five again, and I shall give
her $.1,000. And the man who
takes Eljzn, who is forty, will have
$5,000 with her."
The visitor reflected a moment
and then inquired:
"You haven't one about fiftv.
j have you?" Philadelphia Ledger.

But experiments ul thia b;l were
costly. They were long in yielding'
any scientific result. It was only a

could afford to see his jewels vanish

Another potentate, Francis 1., tried
the quality of a number of valua
ble diamonds in the heat of a .fur
nace and may have felt some grati
fication when he found that they
had disappeared. This was in 17o0,
and about twenty years later scien
tific experimenters burned a magni
ficent diamond in Paris.
A jeweler named LeBlanc now
came forward and denied the pos
sibility of burning n' diamond, even
going so far as to accuse the chem
ist Macquer of fraud in conduct
ing his diamond burning opera
tions. He had often, he asserted,
exposed diamonds to great heat,
with the sole result of increasing

hours they had all disappeared
Then Maillard. who seems to
have had his suspicions of these
operations, nut three diamonds in
an eurthen bowl packed in powder
cd charcoal and exposed them to
intense heat without injury. Next
Lavoisier came forward with his
explanations of the phenomena at
tending the results of these various
experiments. He says that by
shutting out the air diamonds are
preserved in the intense heat of a
furnace, but that the admission of
oxygen, which combines with the
carbon of the diamond, allows it to
burn almost as readily as a piece of

IF typewriters were machines run by mechanical means in
stead of human hands, you would find that, with ashen amount
of power, a Monarch could be run at a higher maintained speed
than other typewriters.
Run by k'girl power," you find that the Monarch is run at
a higher all-day average speed than other typewriters, and
without a "tapering off," from fatigue toward the day's end.
Both these truths are due to the fact that
lightens the draft, uses "oower more economically. Eliminates
the waste of energy that typifies the heavy-touch machines.
This in turn means increased production per machine and de
creased cost of typewriter work ter folio.
