Finds Wife and Son After 21 Years
i vmm muN nuaata m
Br pa rat ad for twenty-one years from his
wife and boy, both of whom he had long
mourned as dead, victims of a fire which
destroyed half of St Johns. Newfoundland,
In 1HB0, James B. Keneflck has been united
4 his lost ones in Jersey City.
Voc ten years, since ha learned that his
wife and child did not perish in the St
John fire, Keneflck baa searched for thsm,
following - claws from Canada to Brasil;
but always In vain, until by chance he
ran serosa an erstwhile fellow fisherman,
James CarroH. The latter told him that
Mrs. Keneflck, with her baby, believing
bar husband had mat death in the flames,
had accompanied the Carrolls first to Bos
ton and later to their present home. In
iwt City.
fceneflck. . now owner of a fishing
schooner, one of the many that make up
the famous Gloucester (Mass.) fleet, lost
no time In getting to Jersey City. His
wife and son. now a stalwart man of 2S,
with, a responsible position In New Tork,
were apprised of his arrival, awaited bis
coming with mingled emotions, hoping yet
fearful that It was not husband and father,
for to them It was a resurrection from the
grave. It was a tearfully happy reunion of
the three. Plana are now under way for
the celebration of the sliver wedding and
after Keneflck has disposed of bis fishing
business In Gloucester he will give up the
calling of the sea and spend the rest of his
days with his family.

Loretta's Looking Glass-Held Up to the Giddy Chaperon
A chaperon la ordinarily a necessity
and a nuisance. But you are a Junketing
JolUfler who takes advantage of the han
dle to your name to pull yourself Into a
plice where you are distinctly not deair
sSe. .
Sometimes some foolish girls got the idea
IhaVlhey want a gay chaperon, so tbey
can dog-ear the edges of the book on
octal . usages. . But how they are . disap
pointed!.. What chance have they, when
youf fertility of fancy and your marrlage
liberatad personality are on the scene?
To" '-,antly appropriate the informalities

You are the only one of the crowd who

gVlm tree trunk and the curling wreath
off ojgarette amoke that waves in the vi
cinity .proves you. are not alone. Tour
articular undeslrableness Is manifested
at the "couple parties." Ton have got to
.have a man .to amuse you. Po there Is al
ways one girl hanging around and Jooise
berrylng a couple. But, as you like mas
culine variety and have the assurance
which. comus of being married and know
ing the mala creature, you look around
and summon the one who suits your fancy.
tba Igrla have a kind of tolerance for
fjefcooteberry because they never know
when they will be it.
Thar .isn't anything actually .wrong
about .your "goings on." . But there Is
so much that Is objectionable that It's
hard to know where to begin enumerat
ing. .
In tha first place, you have a husband.
And tha girls at tha picnic have not.
Tou were invited to play propriety as
Inconspicuously as possible, and to busy
yourself . with the real work about the
lunch, while the girls did the dainty and
decorative. Instead of living up. to a tacit
agreement, you use your married knowl
edge to win tha men.
Tou know a man tikes to smoke and
listen to a woman's chatter. . Tou also
know that he loves having his feet high
on tree trunks, bis arms under his head
and his eyes fastened on the green wilder
ness of boughs above against which tha
wreathing grace of, his smoke rings show
to advantage. So you teU him to smoke.
Tou give 'his feet liberty. And you do
not aspect to be entertained.
What chance have the girls at the par
ticular man whose comfort you know so
well how to consult without even asking?
To aave her soul, no girl can keep from
regarding each man who comes into her
neighborhood from the standpoint of, his
desirability as a mate. It makes a man
feel drawnout and stretchy to measure up
to her Idea of Prince Charming. Whether
ha aspires to the position or not, he wants
to feel that he could fiU it.
But with you, he can Just be his ease
taking, ring-blowing self.
It's snippy of you! Tou were a girl
yourself orce! And you r.d not Tatter
yourself that the rags and tags (hat the
man tosstrs you laxily, the compliments he
gives you as a' sort of pay for the priv
ilege, of being comfortable, are Indications
of his slavery to your charm. He Is prob
ably thinking as he lies with his haf over
his eyes and you' chatter, that your bus
band has married an amazingly silly per
son. For it Is silly for a woman who has
11 the big chancxs of married life at her
disposal to aeem unduly Interested In the
worthless flattery that a man flings her
half-earelessly. Unless you have your hus
band fooled, you really stand well only In
your own estimation.
Good Practice
A young lawyer, recently married, at
tended a bar association banquet, and after
the dinner found himself far .from sober, a
fact he realized with a feeling of regret and
dread. He confided his dilemma to an old
Judge, and an expert in legal as well as
social usage, who gave him this bit of ad
vice: "When you go home and. she makes her
accusation, file your answer, denying each
and every allegation as set out In her com
plaint, my boy; and don't concede a point,
or your opportunity Is forever gone. Now
is your chance to make your reputation, so
that she will have tha utmost confidence
In you." Metropolitan.

Chicken Meat Grown from Protoplasm j
According to a special article In tha Bos-,
ton Herald of recent date. Dr. Warren 1L
Lewls, associate professor of anatomy In
Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, and
his wife, Margaret Reed Lewis, also a phy.
siclan, announce that after a 'long series
of experiments they have found a way of
inducing tha Indefinite growth of cellular
substances by chemical processes. Thus
far Dr. Lewis and his wife have experi
mented only with embryonic chicks, and
their products, grown in test tubes, have
been microscopic . In Quantity. Hut the
principle has been established and there
seems to be no reason why developments
should not follow on a wholesale basis.
What Dr. Lewis and his wife have ac
complished In this: They have taken an
embryonic chicken, placed it in a saline
solution and grown chicken meat without
hindering future growth, and this process
can be repeated Indefinitely. This same
process may be repeated with any kind
of flesh.
Just as It Is now possible for the subur
banite to go out into his vegetable garden
and snip lettuce for his salad while his
wife pinches off the celery and. parsley
for the soup, repeating the operation from
day to day, so when this discovery shall
have reached Its full fruition It may be
possible for the housewife of the future to
go Into her pantry uncover a Jar and cut
off a piece of spring chicken: from another
Jar to get a slice of spring lamb; from an
other a piece of halibut and possibly, some
diamond back terrapin, in fact, she will
be able to grow any kind of flesh.
Here Is what Dr. Lewis himself has to
say of his discoveries:
"Tba value of all these experiments which
my wife and I have conducted has several
different phases. For Instance, It may
some day have a great commercial value.
Suppose that you had a number of vats
tilled with saline solutions, and that In
these solutions you put the muscles or
other organs of various animals not only
while In the embryo, but even when they
had reached the adult stage. There would
be large growths, and these would be edible.
In other words, the salt solutions could be
turned Into Incubators sure to hatch and
from which pieces of embryo chicks could
bo tsken every day without hindering the
increase of the supply. Thus there would be
a new delicacy.
"These possibilities are far In the future.
but that they will become true some dsy
there la every probability. This would
prove of great importance to the world.
as tha supply pf meats would never give
out so long as the chemicals could be
secured to make tha solutions In which
the generation takes place.
"But the more Important Immediate good
what the discovery will do Is of a medicinal
character. In these saline solutions It will
be possible to transplant organs of the
human body, to obaerva their growth, what
they feed on. what they secrete, the things
which are dangerous to them and the things
which are beneficial.
'As a result of this study important cures
can be effected. The difficulty about find.
Ing a cure for cancer is that no one knows
its exact cause. But when the solutions
csn be used tn this manner It will ba
possible to find the cause and determine
on a cure. Then also it will be possible to
determine what will cause a tumor to go
away and on what It feeds."
Knew His Limit
Mayor Oaynor, at a dinner in Brooklyn,
condemned certain ideas of civil service
that a German visitor from Berlin had
recommended. i
"Those Ideas may do well In Berlin," ba
said, "but I don't think they'd do well
here. We are opposed to freaks, and this
new sort of civil sen-Ice examination Is
as freakish as Old Bleuth's.
"Old Sleuth, the detective chief, was one
examining a new applicant for tha detec

man's hand a pale mass of ruffles and
lace and cambric a woman's skirt and-.
" 'Find the pocket in that.' he said.
"But the applicant shook his head.
" 'No, chief,' he admitted frankly, that's
beyond me.'
"Then Old 61euth slapped him heartily
on the back.
" 'If you're smart enough, my boy,' ha
cried, 'to know It's no use to look for the
