Roherts who led the orchestra, prepaned the program several weeks ago to admit of the diligent practice whl^-h was done on the numbers used laRt night. • , Observing women who were there* toy.the feminine contingent of the dancers never, looked lovelier than last night. Many handsome evening dresses were worn for the first time and pretty conceits in the way of headdresses and garnitures for gowns were noticeable.

People of Australia.and.Mew Zealand; ^ Persistent In Trying Out Plana for Publio Good. The* people of sonny Australia and of misty New Zealandr-the working people anyway-^re persistent optimists. For 20 years they have been trying out one plant after another for the common good. The eight-hour dar was an tatabllshed Institution over there before we thought of It, except as an Ideal. State old-age and Invalidity pensions have been paid for sOqie years, and the first steps taken j toward the astablisbment of a mini, mum wage passed on the Australian | standard ot living. Postal savings hanks, the parcel post and atate life' inauranoe have not driven capital out, of the country, telegraph and telephone lines—and coal mines In New Zealand—has not convinced the oapi- tallsta that life Is not worth living. Sneh paternalism as the furnishing of' free transportation- to men out of work and the'Ioanlng of money to en-, able those without means to Uke up publio land have not only made valu>' able citizens of many who otherwise'. might have become wastrels, but; have proved good Investments. ..." They decided to enter politics and to secure by.legislation the things most easily obtained In that manner, at the : same time pressing forward, inch by • Inch, in the Industrial field by means of the collective bargain, backed when. needful by the strike and boycott' Thtis was bom the movement which,' for the first time in history, has placed . the wage earners in absolute control of the government of a nation. i New York.

The Violana is run by motor, again. This infirmity of the animal was amusingly illustrated in the experience of a French explorer whose caravan was made up of camels. The leader had bought some new ones and had no idea of taking any other animals Into a country largely composed of loose sand. Trouble began at the very outset One camel, as awkwkard as any of the species, managed to tumble into a ditch of thick mud between the road and a wheat field. When once fallen a camel can only get up again if he can arrange bis feet conveniently under him and If the ground Is nearly flat. In this case it was not so. The animal lay with all four feet in the air, perfectly resigned and incapable of a single movement to help himself. To draw him out required more than half an hour and took the united efforts of many men with cords passed, imder the camel's back. World-Famed Tree. In the botanical gardens of Calcutta Is the famous banyan tree. It covers 2^ acres of ground and fills the visitor with admiration and awe. The utmost care Is taken of this wonderful tree, for every tender young root, as It begins to fail like a sta lactite from the branch overhead, is encased and protected from harm in a bamboo. It is hoped that this partlcu lar tree, nu.-pcd and nurtured like a baby, will within the next 50 years, cover at least Jr> acres of ground. It is supposed to have l..")Of' atrial roots, a number of which It l.s lirohali!" that a cypher has been accMentally omitted.

The foot, stone as well as the headstone is '• solid, giving evidence of careful work \ on tho part of tho ones who placed it \ there. j Tho grave was evidently chosen a ' century ago as a secluded spot, and i when found trees, underbrush and shrubbery nearly hid it from sight Tho words on this headstone .-ire: Erected In memory of and to designate the place where Asa fjrost, Jr..

At first the Boston & Malno considered getting tlio conscut of tho state to remove tho stone and tho dust of tho bodies, but it has been decided to let tho gravo remain whuru It is. So these five persons will rest where they are nnd their bed of tho last century will not bo disturbed.
