and referred to the following auditing
committee: Hugh Hill, W. W. Man

directions to report to the board at a

BETTER WITHOUT THE PILLOW
Doctor Declares That Sounder and
More Healthful Sleep Is Secured.
Without Its Use.
"Pillows are little more than a fad,
and a rather harmful one at that,"
said a doctor. "They should really
only be used by those who sleep on
their sides, as they are injurious to
others. When you sleep on your side
your shoulder prevents your head
from lying level on the bed, and pil
lows are useful to raise the head to
this level. The natural and most
healthful position for the ordinary
person in sleeping is for one's head
to be kept perfectly even, just as it
would be standing up. Now, for the'
one who lies on his back while Bleep
ing, no pillow is needed to keep the
head in this position, and yet 99 per
cent, of the persons who sleep on
their backs use pillows, while those
who sleep on their sides use far more
pillow than is necessary. People get
used to having their heads and shoul
ders propped high up, and imagine
they could not sleep any other way,
but, as a matter of fact, if they would
try sleeping with little or no pillow
they would not only find that they
would feel better in the morning, but
also would actually be more comfort
able in bed and sleep much sounder
throughout the night"
A Hogarthian Inn Sign.
One of the most humorous inn signs
Is "The Man Loaded with Mischief,"
which is found about a mile from Cam
bridge, England, on the Madingley
road. The -original "Mischief waa de
signed by Hogarth for a public house
in Oxford street.
It is needless to say that the sign
board and even the name, have long
ago disappeared from the busy Lon
don thoroughfare, but the quaint de
vice must have been extensively
copied by country sign painters
There is a "Mischief" at Walling
ford and a "Load of Mischief" at
Norwich. The Inn on the Madingley
road, exhibits the sign in its original
form Though the colors are much
faded from exposure to the weather,
traces of Hogarthian humor can be
detected. A man is staggering under
the weight of a woman, who is on his
back. She is holding a glass of gin
in her hand; a chain and padlock are
around the man's neck, labeled "Wed
lock." On the right hand is the shop
oi "S. Gripe, Pawnbroker," and a car
penter is just going in to pledge his

"It is a rare thing to see the women
of India these days wearing any valu

gone by." said Charles Gawtrey of
"When I first went to the Orient the
women of the upper class commonly
owned and wore thick chains and
bracelets of the finest gold and ol

It Is pitiable to witness, as I have, the

Official Standing of Kiss.
Homer describes how the servants
of the noble Odysseus kissed his head,
shoulders and hands, and he alsc
states with his usual exactness, which
class of servants was entitled to dc
homage in this manner and which
class had to be satisfied with a hand
shake. Thus in Romejt was custom
ary to kiss the head, the hands, the
tunics or the feet of prominent men,
according to the rank of those whe
saluted. In the beginning of the im
perial era a prominent Roman could
not appear in public but that he was
almost devoured by his admirers
Diocletian introduced the kiss of honor,
which was given by the emperor for
particular merits in the public wel
fare, just as decorations are given to

WHERE WAS GARDEN OF EDEN?
Learned Men Differ Widely in the
Location of the First Dwelling
Place on Record.
Students of Biblical lore and geog
raphers have located the Garden of
Eden in many places on the earth in
the last few hundred years. So ex
cellent an authority on oriental his
tory as Prof. Robert W. Rogers of the
Drew Theological seminary has defi
nitely placed it in the circumscribed
region lying between the Tigris and
Euphrates. He says he does so with
the full authority of the Bible.
In the course of his oriental re
search Prof. Rogers found that the
Biblical references to the Garden of
Eden seemed to Indicate that it must
have been in the region between the
two rivers mentioned. He points to
the fact that in the Biblical story of
Eden appears the statement that a
river watering the garden was divided
and became four heads, the last of the
four being Euphrates. The Euphrates
rises in the Armenian mountains, and.
uniting with the Tigris, flows into the
Christopher Columbus thought that
Eden was in Venezuela, and so in
formed the Spaniards. One or two
other explorers of years gone by con
tended that the garden was on the
island of Ceylon, the reason being
simply that they found there a moun
tain called Adams' Peak.
The search for the Holy Grail occu
pied the time of the middle ages 'in
great part, but with the final abandon
ment of that quest the hunt for the
Garden of Eden became a popular
pastime. In the early stages of this
it was. located in many different
places, among them being Armenia,

continent somewhere. One savant

Of all our birds the plover is abso

The bird destroys snails, wireworms,

' Fireless Cooking, a novel Twentieth Century inven
