The earth haa both, end ranaAoiientlv , " active volcanoes. This Is the V. earliest, and, upon the whole, the most consistent and probable explanation of 1 volcanic action. All the active volca- I noes are sufficiently near the sea to be within the probably range of percolat ing subterranean water. But some of the water mo doubt comes from the rocks themselves. Still, there are no ac- tlve volcanoes at great distanced from the ; ocean. 1 Those found In the far Interior of con tinents are mere dead shells, tolling of a i ttme when they were animated by the gigantic force of steam, supplied from water sources now lacking.

There certainly Is a natural re spect which any loving heart wants to pay to its dead. But the father who loved your friend would never have wished his eon to suffer unnecessarily. And If this man la getting morbid over hi suffer ings, he owes It to himself to seek some diversion which will enable him to find strength to meet his bereavement. How ever, it is only natural that he should be somewhat loath to go to places of amusement. As soon as he can adluat himself to seeking a little harmless di version, such as going to concerts, lec tures or even to the theaters, it would e wise for him to do so.

But when he had smoothed her tumbled hair and held ber face hard against his and then "made dough" out of the chuck ling, kicking little person with the hair of down, and had heard her confused, shamed confession, "I I for got dinner.

Whos Talent and Beauty Have Won for Her an Enviable Place In the Moving Picture World. A young man Z know told me the other day that he was going to be married. "I hop you will b very happy," I said a I congratulated him. ' fh, Tm sure to. I'm taking no chances on that." he replied confidently, "for I am marrying my little office partner. We've worked together for four years, and we know all of eaoh other's little faults and peculiarities, and how to get around them. '"when ah come down of a morning cross, and Jumpy with nerves I send her out on some errand that will take her Into the fresh air, and tell her not to come back for two or three hours. "And when I'm grumpy, she Just says to nn, 'Bear!' and make a face at me, and goea off and leaves me until I have worked off my grouch. Instead of burst ing Into tears and having hysterics be cause I'm croas. "Tou see she knows how to deal with an overworked man. which Is something that few domestlo women comprehend. "furthermore. I know about 11,000,000 things more about getting along with women, from having worked with them, than the man does who has never seen any woman at close range except Ms mother and alsters, and he Isn't much acquainted with them. "You never hear of any man getting a divorce who has married his stenogra pher, or office assistant, or even busi ness woman." added my friend, trium phantly. And I don't believe I ever did. Of course, there are a great many reasons why the business girl should make the best Sort of a matrimonial risk. One thing Is that the training in an office correct many of th essentially femi nine faults. It teaches a girl to be prompt, orderly and decisive. Bhe must do things on ttme; she must do them properly, and she must make up mind on the spur of the moment without any ahllly shallying and filing back and forth between "I will" and "I won't." Then, having earned money herself, makea a woman careful of how she spends It. She know every dollar comes through weariness and anxiety, and is bought with Just that much of life and blood; and she doesn't throw It away with the subline carelessness of ths woman who seems to think that checks grow on trees. ou,rrellnr over him.

She ha to learn to keep her precious little feeling to herself, Instead of spreading them all over th place, and howling whenever anybody steps on them. But the chief reason that the business girl makes an Ideal wife, 1 because having worked herself, she haa a sym pathy for her husband, and a com prehension of what h does that no home keeping woman can possibly have. The average woman regards a man's going downtown of a morning In th nature of a lark. Bhe thinks it would Just be fun to spend the day with a lot of other people In a nloe office or store, seeing fresh face, and hearing new stories all day long, and ahe thinks It all pretense when her husband says bs Is too tired to go out of an evening, or even to talk. The girl who has been In business knows, the frightful strain of getting up every morning and going to work at a certain time, whether you are weary or rested, or sick cr well. Bhe knows that no battlefield was ever the soene of a greater conflict than goes on every hour of the day In store of countingroom, and that the higher up the man. the more his expenditure of brain and brawn. Bhe knows what it Is to come home so nerve worn and exhausted that It aeems that Just to have to make one more effort would be the straw that breaks the camel' back. And so from her own experience, she refrain from adding to th burden of a man who ha already got all he ean bear, and she coddles and comforts hlra as no other wife does her husband, be cause the other woman doesn't under stand, and never can understand how he needs It. That's why. If I were a man, I'd pick out a business woman for a wlfs.

The Treatment of Cancer By WOODS HTJTCHIlf SOJf M. D. When It oomea to forms of treatment of the r than the surgical operation, we must confess our embarrassment, almost our helplessness. Numerous as they are, w are com pelled In the present state of our knowl edge to say of all of them, that they should be considered only after aa oper ation haa failed, or is out of the ques tion, or aa aooeseoiies to operation, to diminish the likelihood of recurrence of the growth. This sounds like a sweeping and dis couraging statement, and will probably be bitterly resented by many eager en thusiasts with the X-ray, radium and with various serum and cultures. But It aeems to represent the sober Judgment of the profession and of those who have had the widest experience with the disease at present. The future we hope may make a better showing. A great variety of methods other than surgical have been eagerly tried, the latest and most frequent being the - In jection Into the growth of Irritating or coagulating substance. In th hop of destroying It or causing It to breach down. , Then com th application of heat In various forms, from sealing with a hot Iron to electro-cautery, the X-ray, the burning-glaaa, concentrating the sun's rays; ths so-called Finaen light through huge blue lenaea; using ths cold or ultra-violet rays of light; radial man atlons, figurations with electric dls- charges, etc., etc Next come the Injection Into the growth of a variety of serums and cultures; In the hope that they will break down the cancer mass and destroy the cancer cells. Cultures from case of crjslelua, iul tures of two or three germs mixed to gether, as - tn the well-known Coley's fluid for the special form of cancer called "Sarcoma," serums made from patients who have recovered from csn oer, or from the blood of those who are still suffering from It; and so on ad Infinitum. There are almost as many kinds of eures as there are cancer, and the sub ject Is hugely beyond the poeslblllty of consideration In detail. But one gen eral principle and hope underlie all of these methods, and that Is the discov ery of some Influence drug, heat, light, germs which will have a selective ef fect; t e.. will destroy the cells of the cancer and leave those of the surround ing tissues untouched. A will b readily understood when we remember the mushroom growth and fungus softness of the canter cells, there is no great difficulty In producing a cer tain amount of effect of this sort. In fact, many of the Injectiona and raya will pioduce a noticeable shrinking and breaking down of ths growth, sufficient to arouse the most glowing hopes of a compute cure. Indeed, the cancer cells are so tender and unstable that almost any Injurious Influence applied to tbem will kill more of them than It will of the body cell about It Is strongly suspected. In fact, that the remarkable temporary results sometime ' produced by the X-rays, radium, by violet light, eto., are merely due to the amount of heat which I mad to penetrate the tumor and shrivel up the more sensitive end delicate cancer cell. But, unfortunately, when It comes to a permanent cure, the ease with which a cancer may be made to shrink Is In si most exactly Inverse ratio to the oer talnty with which It can be. kept shrunksn. The reason 1 painfully clear again from the nature of the cancer Cell. Although almost sny Injurious Influ ence can be so applied as to kill them and spare the healthy and surrounding tis sues. It Is practically impossible to so apply It as to reach thoae which have progressed two, four or sis tnchss Into the body, I. e., without burning a hoi in th patient' body of th also of a derby hat. No matter how completely the original or aurface growth ha shrunken down and disappeared under the Influence of radium, the X-ray. or violet rays. In eltrht cases out of ten so far a ths seed cells escape and the growth comes back either In the neighborhood of Its origin or in some of the Internal organa. Almot the only exception to the regret ful statement I th case of certain super ficial cancers of the skin, the eyelids, the none, face and hands, which can be completely cleered up by expoaure to either radium or the X-ray. But these, unfortunately, ' have been known for forty years, for some strange reaaon. never to throw off seed cells which penetrate the deeper cells of the body and produce secondary cancers. We still have hopes that with Increasing ex perience and Improved technique better result may be obtained. But up to date the number of cases of proved csncer which have been cured and atayed cured for five yeara or more after treatment with the X-rays, or radium, or serums, Is painfully small. And, of course, we don't begin to uae the term "cure" in connection with cancer until at leaat three and usually five to seven yesrs have elapsed without any fresh signs. Why, you haven't more than half mowed that lawn."
