ORIGIN OF THE ESKIMO Christian Leden. a polar ex plorer for the University of Christiana, who is in Chicago for several days prior to his return to Norway, in an interview said he was investigating the origin of the Eskimo. It is his belief that this family is of the' same branch as the American Indian. A pecu liar feature of all these most northern inhabitnats is that when born the babies have skin even more white than the Cauca sian. "But there is a tiny black spot in the middle of the back," he stated, "and it is this spot in which their dark complexions or iginate. The spot grows larger and at the same time less strong ly colored ; finally, it spreads over the entire body." Here is a discovery that is worth nursing. In olden times, brass collars and other badges of servitude were used to mark the difference between master and man. Civilization, while It taught hu manity a whole lot of things, did not disturb the desire to dose up the gulf between the boss and his lave. Brass col...

Peter Hobbs. as we have said, was 21 years old and his ambition, as he toiled daily in the machine shop, was to be a good machinist. In fact, he wanted to be a better machinist than the men about him. How to accomplish this was a puzzle, for how could he learn from men who knew less than he wanted to know? One day a lecturer from the university extension course of Wisconsin came to the factory and from him Peter learned that the state would teach him all there was to know about the ma chinist's trade, for a very small fee. by correspondence. If he would get together 15 or 20 young machinists who wanted to know more about their trade, the university would send a regu lar teacher to them once a week, H

John Hobbs, jr., ton. '"ound out that the state of Wisconsin was anxious to make a first class pattern maker out of him. He was an apprentice in a pattern shop, but under the law his employer gave him five hours a ' week on salary to receive lessons in gov ernment, history and other school courses from special teachers sent nut by the board of education.

SW55H355 STREET COSTUMES WITH AUSTRALIAN CHINCHILLA - ' - -w-nirTWinT - From far off Australia comes the gray fur that is one of the fashions of this season. This pretty animal skin is used effectively on a dark brown street costume. The material is slight ly flecked with cream, giving the mixed effect when seen at close vision. This costume has a bias air from the slash of the skirt. The coat is lapped well on to the side where it fastens and the buttons of this garment extend on a diag onal line with those on the skirt. The Australian chinchilla is formed into a collar on the coat and a deep revere of the brown cloth goes to the line where the jacket is fastened. o o SHOT $50 IN DOG Swoyerville, Pa., Dec. 30.

HOW J. P. MORGAN FREED CHINA The Chinese Rebelled Rather than Let J. Pierp. Get a Grip on China Like the One He Has on the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave. Sad as may be the necessity of 'doing so, it is necessary to take from Willie Randolph Hearst the credit of freeing China, and place that credit where it belongs with J. Pierpont Morgan, and his ally, the government of the .United States of America. The story of J. Pierpont Mor gan's activities in this regard brings to mind those legends which tell how wolves suckled babes, and which have roused in suspicious persons the thought that perhaps the wolves suckled the babes with ever in mind the thought of larger and choicer tit bits in time to come. Doubtless Mr. Morgan did not know he was freeing China, and doubtless he is going to be ex tremely pained to discover he has done so. Also, he is going to lose some money by it, which is one of the consolations of the situa tion. Consider the facts: A few years ago, the Manchu...

jTjyTf.tf !. Msfl3SWii dared not go back on their secret contracts with the French, Brit ish and German governments and financiers, and they were afraid to increase the loan. They pro tested to the United States gov ernment against Morgan's sug gestion of part of the pie. Then - did William Howard Taft, president of these United States, send a personal cablegram to Prince Regent Chun which forced the matter to an issue. The "railroad loan" was in creased. Morgan was allowed to make a Joan, and further was giv en permission to build a section of the "development of China" railroad, and to supply the mate rials for the same. This was a cute arrangement, inasmuch as Morgan thus made two profits. He made a rake-off from the handling of the loan, and he made a juicy profit by supply ing the railroad construction ma terials from the Morgan Steel Trust. While Taft; Knox and Willard Straight were telling the Man chu government where it got off in the matter of borrowing mon ey, President Ta...

fmmmmmmgmmmmmmsm upon, was that little Pu Yi had 'been "deceived" by a naughty member of his cabinet, who had turned the country's railroads over to wicked foreigners. Evidently, the thing that was sticking in the craws of the Chi nese people, and making them re bel, was the handling of the rail road question. Yes, J. Pierpont Morgan freed China! But there is something ineff ably sad in the spectacle of the government of "th,e most en lightened nation of Christendom" aiding the schemes of Morgan to such an extent that a groaning people arose in rebellion, and shed their "blood and devastated their country, in order to throy off the Morgan shackles. -o o- IRE.

New York, Jan. 3. New York city is facing a clean linen fam ine today.

"People who take their clothes to laundries never get any closer to us than the tiled-walled, scru pulously clean offices they never hear of the hells back there where we work. "We get to work at 7 in the morning and have to work until 7 at night. We get only half an hour for lunch. When there is overtime work to be done, we are forced to stay as long as Ave are told. We get nothing extra for this. "The state factory inspectors recently made the laundries put in chairs. You'll find the chairs stacked up in corners. It would be worth a girl's job to sit in one. "We work in superheated rooms filled with steam. The air is filled with millions of minute particles of lint, torn from the things we are laundering. Tuber culosis is the commonest disease among the girls. "I know of no laundry in New York which has a decent dressing room. Most of the room for women are exposed so th...
