Ever Hear of the Kagu,
the Cariama and Rhea?
By GARRETT I SERYI89.
In the kingdom of bitds there are a
groat many odd character enough to
form an avian "Eccentric club' with a
large membership. -
First there la the
"Kagu." an In
habitant of New
aledonla, a gray
big as a
barnyard fowl, hav
ing an Immense
mane of feathers
which It can erect
Into a crest Its bill
nd feet are red,
nd Its wings are
Tack and white,
with russet mark
ings. They look Ilka
good wings, but
they are of little use for flying, and the
gird can be caught by dogs when It la
feeding In the bush. When one la thus
caught Its mate. If within call, will
hasten to the rescue and fight heroically,
sharing the danger, wit a utter disregard
In captivity the kagu Is very amusing
because of his solemn, thoughtful de
portment He will gravely take a walk
along a human visitor who makes
his acquaintance by Imitating Ha
peculiar call; but whan left alone will
occaalonaly Indulge In th, most extravag
ant antics, "rushing about with outspread
wings and sticking his beak In the ground
and kicking in apparent attempts to stand
on Its head." This behavior might ap
.pear to be "prison madness,'' but for
itlie fact that the kagu Is a famous
lantlo dancer In Its native wilds where It
is rapidly becoming extinct
Even more singular tian the kagu Is
the "Cariama," a South American crea
ture, described as "a running ground bird,
svith a non-grlpp ng foot, which never
theless roosts and nests In trees; which
has the long bare legs of a wader, yet
naver goes Into water, but loves to
stroll In the dust" Among Its moBt not
able peculiarities Is Its habit of stopping
the fight that occur amung other birds.
it is n ncace-lover which does not con
fine its pacific efforts to more protests.
Like the kagu, th-i cnrlania Uvea upon
Inserts. In liraasll and Paraguay tha
curiama Is doiiinHtlcBed and trained to
guard orminary fowls. It combines some
of the characters of the eagle, the bus
aard and the crane.
Anoiher curious bird as the "Rhea,"
also a native of South America, where it
is called an ostrich, gut it Is smaller
than the true ostrlct r.e.ver carrying Its
head to a man's he.ght above the ground.
Vet the male bird, which alts on the nest
to hatch out the eggs, ia full of courage
ind will attack a man on horseback, try
ing to leap up and kick him off. When
Charles Darwin was In Patagonia he
heard many stories of the ferocity of
these birds when disturbed on their nests,
nd saw tha Guachoa catch them with
bolos and lassos with atones attached ta
the ends, which when skilfully thrown,
entangle the bird's legs and bring It

One day's newa" contained two- atart
ling different angles of view upon lovefy
woman. One presented her at her Im
memorial scene of labor, the washtub.
Tha other showed a
bevy of her leaving
a man upon whom a
critical a u r g I c a 1
operation was being
performed, alone and
unaided, to his fate.
One ahowed her con
structive, a builder.
The other repre
sented her as a

girls are to take in
washing tha rest of
the acadermlo year,"
so ran tha news.
They will do this In s,J
aid of tha college fir
fund. A squad began work the otlier
day In the basement of Lake House, a
dormitory opened this fall close to the
ruins of the college halL The administra
tion building burned last March.
The name of a Junior who runs the
wringer was given. The list of the iron
ing squad followed, and the red cheeked,
blue fingered girls who hang out the
clothea these early winter daya, finished
tha paragraph. It wa more Interesting
than any list df guests at a society func
tion I ever read, because behind this wash
girls' record. . was . a fine purpose, the
Why did they 'wash and wring and
hank out and Iron, these girls who had
probably never washed anything heavier
or more soiled than their own dainty
hands T Because their college waa In
need. It needed a house and there had
been offered a shining Inducement. The
Rockefeller foundation had offered a
gift of fTCO.OOO to restore the college
buildings, but like all munificent things
of , life. It entailed much effort. The
WeUesley girls are learning truly that
something is never given for nothing.
The Rockefeller foundation gift depends
upon whether WeUesley and its friends
can raise 11.250.000. The huge sum must
be raised before January i. So the girls
hava determined to forget Christmas, to
eschew alelghrtdes and to get all their
exercise at the washtub and their corre
lated Ironboards and washUnes until that
sum Is assured.
Bravo for the WeUesley glrla. Bless
ings on their cracked fingers and cal
loused palms and scorched knuckles and
spilt nails. Every one of thW marka of
toil will be beauty spots to eyes that
see. They hava learned tha fine art of
getting out of themselves. They have
solved the problem of working for a
united purpose. Wellesley's superb
motto has fired their souls. "Not to be
ministered unto, but to minister."
It were unfair to them to call these girls
an army of soldiers. Tha glory. If glory
haa ever existed In war, has been tar
nished by blood stains to our fancy. Our
souls sicken and our spirits faint at aound
of the word army. Wa hava ceased com
paring Ufa to a battle, for wa know that
battle Is hideous and life need not be so
unless we make It. But these volunteer
washwomen are among the builders, tha
glorious builders of this world.
In painful contrast to this was a strike
of tha nursea at a Long Island hospital.
Strikea may be necessary. Perhaps
under some circumstances they are un
avoidable But while these nurses struck
surgeons were fighting for a man's Ufa
around an operating table. The emissary
of the striking nurses cams to tha door
aad called out tha nursea. Two of them
went, but, to the honor of a third, be tt
said that she disobeyed the call: An
aw wing .that life was more important
even lhan a strike, aha went back and as
sisted the doctors In their difficult task.
This action of deserting nurses seems
on its face the most Inhuman record aet
against womanhood since the female Bor
gtaa and De Medlcia did their poisoning.
There may be pleaded In extenuation of
their act that the atriklng nursea were
hysterical and and to that degree irre
sponsible. But, In greater degree of ex
tenuation was the fact that one of their
number had been summarily, and they
believed unjustly, dismissed. Woman
standing by woman is a cheering specta
cle, but, woman standing by woman at
peril of life, eveu a mere man's life, ta
horrifying. The Long Island hospital
nurses need to Uarn that there la a time
and place for all things, even a strike.
I am glad to know that some of them
were dismissed;' glad, too, that those who
were permitted to return did so In tears
and with apologies and a flood of prom
ises aa profuse aa their tears.
The man patient lived, but It was no
credit to tha twenty-five striking nurses.
In their mood of furies they were de
stroyers. They were pullers down. They
were what the world does not want, even
aa It wants and needs the laundry girls
Builder or destroyer, which are you?
Which are w all?
That Unhappy Girl kjjkj
Ravings of the Koresh Folk &
f ...... j
By ANN LISLE.
"I am an 18-year-old girl. I never have
a bit of pleasure. My girl friends enjoy
themselves, but I must alwaya alt at
home after a hard day'a work. I am not
allowed out even with girl friends. And
this makes me the unhapptest glfl in the
world. What shall I do?" writes "Un
From her letter I turn to that of
"Lonely Jane," who writes that aha is
"the unhapplest girl In aU the world," be
cause the man for whom she haa cared
for two years is now tiring of her and
beginning ta show-an interest In her 1&-year-old
cousin. And then M. K. C,
who entera the ranks of "the unhap
plest glrla In all the world" because she
Is not popular with men, and next speaks
the girl who bewails her fate because
she can't afford to dress well, and so on
down a long Hat of girls, no one of
whom haa a real heart-breaking sorrow.
A very clever man once said that only
two things were unendurable physical
deformity and disgrace and that the
people who met with either one generally
managed to endure it In alienee.
Tne point Is that people who have
great sorrows to bear are generally too
busy enduring them or finding ways of
mitigating conditions to waste any en
ergy bewailing their fates. All the girls
who shriek that they cannot endure
their sorrows are too busy in their
search for sympathy either to suffer
very deeply or to make much sane ef
fort to find a way out
No one of the thlnga that these girls
claim single them out for unique and
lonely unhapplness la vital. To be
lonely, not to have friends, to be jilted
by a fickle man, to fall to look atunnlng
however stunningly dressed or to suffer
from any social disappointment la only
an unpleasant little Incident that must be
endured aa a little pebble on tha amooth
path of life.
The Important thing to do Is not to sit
around thinking how miserable you are
over a' trifle of this sort, for tf suffi
ciently magnified through contemplation
it will soon enough coma to look like a
real trouble. If any social trouble Is
worrying you just proceed to conquer It
by taking thought.
. If your parents won't let you go about
with other young girls and waste your
time In the silly und dangerous ways
girls call "having a good time," Improve
your mliid by good reading when you are!
at home, or practice muslo or sew or
develop your domestlo accomplishments
Soma day you will be very happy be
cause of the knowledge you have gained.
If you hava few friends, study ways
of making other people happy Instead of
thinking how unhappy you are. Then
you will aoon enough come to be sought
If a fickle and faithless man deserts
you for someone else, be duly grateful
that you found him out without the sad
experience of becoming bis wife.
If you aren't attractive looking, atudy
ways of making your health ao good and
your character ao sweet that you will
radiate wholesome and kindly charm.
If you are not stunning looking or
popular, don't waste time on these non
sasentiala. Just make the most of tbs
good points that you might develop if
you were not longing for qualities that
your nature does not In (he natural
course of things possess.
If you had a real agony you would
probably be woman enough to hear It
Endure your smaller woes with fortitude
and you will suddenly see that they are
only pinpricks sent to cultivate your
powers of endurance against the coming
of the real staba of life. -

And It Isn't how much you are hurt that

covered tha word Koresh, but could not
find the meaning In our dictionary or
three encyclopedias. Please give tha
meaning." Ines Fella." Redwood City,
Cel., R. F. D., Ban Mateo county.
A. Cyrus It. Teed (deceased) signed to
his name the word Koresh and wrote out
a series of treatises and called the whole
"Cellular Cosmogony, the .Unlversology of
Korehanlty or the Earth a Hollow
The doctrine of Koreshanlty Is one of
the most remarkable diseases of the mind
ever encountered by skilled mentalists. J
The entire literature of mental maladies
does not present anything to compare
with thia singular disease. j
The cause of the disease haa never been
discovered. It consists of opposltes; thus
one suffering with thia distressing com
plaint sees things exactly opposite from
what they really are.
.There Is no cure known; for reason, the
highest attribute of man la dethroned,
and when reason la subverted perma
nently no cure can be effected.
To quote from Teed:

tion of curvature being eight Inches to the

a corresponding circumference of about
The entire Copernlcan astronomy, now
based upon the most rigid mathematics
and proved to be true In minute detail by
predicting eclipses, transits, oppositions
and conjunctions for centuries to come,
and then beholding them take place to the
minute and even seconds. Is totally dis
puted by these diseased men. Atin:
"What does Koreshanlty offer as a sub
stitute for the glgsntic fallacy of the be
nighted Corpernlcus? First, It offers the
fact that tu experiments carefully made
by the Koreshan goedetlo staff of Na
ples, on the gulf coast of Florida, the
contour, of the earth was proven to be
diametrically the reverse of what is
taught In the pseudo-science of modern
"The surface of tha earth is not convex.
It appears to be so because of optical
illusion. The only geodetlo survey ever
made for the purpose of determining
whether the surface on which we dwell
Is convex or concave waa made by tha
geodetic staff of the Koreshan Unity in
the year 1897. In thia survey waa cor
roborated conclusively the testimony
given in 1870, that the earth la a hollow
shell about 1,000 miles In diameter and
about 2S.00O miles In circumference."
Literature, ancient or modern, does not
contain the equal of this. Many thous
ands of surveys from the time of Eratos
thenes of Alexandria, B. C. 200, until now,
in 1914, have been and are being made.
Modern geodetic surveys began with
Pickard In France In l7t. Then the most
eminent mathematicians founded national
geodetic aocletles. Arcs of tha earth's
meridians hava been measured from
Hammerfeat to Austria. Europe waa
surveyed with microscopic precision; an
accurate line eighteen degress long waa
measured in India, and In the western
hemisphere many more.
The United H tales government main
tains the highest geodetlo society In the
world. The accuracy of measurement at
tained haa awakened tha admiration of
tha entire scientific world. These emi
nont geometers have measured great area
with an accuracy down to mlllimeteroe,

Advice to Lovelorn

Walt ITatll Ho Is Free.
Dear Mlas Fairfax: I am a young lady
1 years of age, and about a year ago 1
met a gentleman. I Immediately thought
that I cared for him.
Thia gentleman, as I found out later,
was a married man, but waa living apart
from his wife and Is now seeking a di
vorce, and as far aa 1 oaa ascertain he
is sure to get it In about two months
lAt week I was visiting some friends
out of town and I met him at that place,
where he is living. AU my heart was
awakened and I cannot bear to be out of
his company, for 1 am very sure that 1
love him, and love him dearly.
lie has asked me if I would marry
him after he is five and I told him that
although I loved him very much I would
have to wait and find out at the end of
two months whether I would consent
Will you kindly advise me whether or
not 1 should consent and whether It Is
proper for me to go out with him while
he Is In.thls predicament.
8. F. P., Newark.
Tou must not accept any attentions
from a married man. It will hurt your
reputation if you are seen with him be
fore he is divorced. Nor should you con
sider marrying him until his divorce Is
an accomplished fact. What ta more, I
strongly advise you to find out the rea
son for his divorce. A man who haa
failed to make a success pf his marriage
may bo blameless and on the other hand
he may be the aort of Individual who
Would wreck the happiness of any woman
who entrusted It to his keeping.
The HiMiesa Taller.
Dear Miss Fairfax: When a gentleman
calls for the first time, is It proper for
the young lady to suggest taking a walk,
or is it proper for her to wait for him
to make such a suggestion? 1 ask this
because it makes the evening so monoton
ous when a gentteinan calls, and we sit
up in the parlor all tha evening, even
though I piay and can talk fluently
enough, yet conversation runs out and I
sometimes think the caller feels bored.
I do not want to siikk -,' going out If
same would be conaldertT. ill-bred.
M KiS 10LLE.
When a young man calls on you, he Is
receiving the hospitality of your home.
It would scarcely be advisable to suggest
seeking amusement elsewhere at the very
first call. When you are better acquainted
there would be no harm in suggesting
that you Uke a walk.
