A very Interesting relic of old London has come to light, according to the London Times, an arch of old London bridge, which was demolished during the construction of the new Ion-don bridge, which began In 1S25. The arch now discovered Is the second from the north side of the old bridge, and Is close to St. Magnus church. It was G. A. R. Encampment, Indianapolis, Ind. Sept. 22nd to Sept. 28th inclusive.

Prof. J. S. Hughes, J. B. Fitch and H. V. Cave of the Kansas State Agricultural college declared at the American Chemical society meeting In New York that the vltamlne content of milk or eggs Is determined largely by the quantity of vitamines in the food given the cows or hens producing the milk or They found that, although a cow receiving dry feed low In vitamines may give a fairly abundant supply of milk, it is of such poor quality that if It is fed to her calve6 they will become blind and die. In other experiments they discovered that eggs of low Mtamiue content laid bv hen7 fed on low-vlt.mlne food pro- 1 dure chicks that are not stron and represents a loss ef over 112,000,000 a year. These results indicate that as a rule the animal organism does not synthesize vitamines. but must obtain them from Its food. If this is generally true. as seems prooaoie rrom me experi- nts reported, it win not always be ! sufficient that the mother Is nursing her haby. but she mu8t b sure that she Is obtaining sufficient vltamlne- contalnlng foods. In the milk experiments it was found that the water-soluble or antl-neuritic vltaminee and the fat-soluble vitamines were those that were lacking, but that the anti-scorbutic vltamlne content was sufficient. FRENCH AVIATOR CLAIMS RECORD FOR ALTITUDE George tvirscii. Kreuch aviator, photographed after landing from a flight of 34,770 feet, or over 64 miles. Klrsch claims this is a world record for altitude. MaJ. Rudolph Schroeder of the United States army Is credited with the record, having risen to a height of 36.202 feet over Dayton. K last year. At the "roof" of his flight Klrsch reported that his thermometer read 69 degrees below zero. The flight was made over the aerodrome at Bour-get, France. BURIED TREASURE NOT FOUND Expedition in Search of Gold Booty In Pinakl Fall. Stolen gold plate, ingots and Jewels believed burled on the South Sea island of Plnakt, In the Paumotu group, near Papeete, Tahiti, evidently hare not been found, according to word received at Papeete. An expedition organised to go to Plnakt to get the treasure has, after several weeks stay, returned to Papeete empty-handed. While there nre reports that the location has been established and another expedition with diving apparatus will return to the island, opinion ls that nothing will come of It. The story of the buried gold was one of many of its kind. It was said the treasure was stolen half a century ago from a Peruvian church, carried across tne Pacific and hidden on the Island. Some years ago, the reports say. an aged sailor, one of the original robbers, made known the location of the valuables Just before he died in Sydney, N. S. W. Whisky Hidden In Haystack.

It was apparently medieval, and Is built of Rcigate stone with a very flat trajectory.

Hartford Ccurant. Flower Worth Small Fortune. Ten thousand dollars is an extraordinary price for a single plant; yet it was paid by Knglish horticulturists for an orchid raised in America, tin Catteleya gigas alba. This Catteleya was flowered in 1!10, and exhibited at an orchid show in the Unite! States, where It was awarded Jld medal. The plant was found hi In otlr specimens Catteleya gigas. It was only by chance that the plant was not sold for a V!- lar or two. The only reason was t&at after most of its companions had been disposed of this one, with some others that were not in very good condition. as set aside. Finally all the specimens were potted. To the great surprise of the horticulturists when, next spring, the plant came up it was with pure white Sowers. The plant was sold in London for perhaps the highest figure that an orchid ever brought. Apology Needs an Apology. "Gentlemen" It came from the lips of an attorney pleading a case recently before the Supreme court of the state of Idaho. In front of him sat the Judges clothed with their Judicial dignity, listening Intently to the case. The attorney had erred. Judges should be addressed as "Your honors." "Gentlemen" repeated the lawyer, and the tiniest hint of a smile flitted across the features of the men In front of him. Suddenly he stopped, realizing his blunder. "I apologize for calling you 'gentlemen " he blurted out. Laughter In a courtroom Is not deemed exactly proper, but a Joke Is s joke and Chief Justice Rice replied simply, "I hope you made no mistake. Idaho Statesman. British Museum Overcrowded. The British museum, says a London writer In the New York Post, has reached the end of its rope, so far as space is concern fnl. By the law of 1830 every English author, whether domiciled at home or in the dominions. Is obliged to place two copies of his books with the museum, which In turn guarantees to keep them in good condition and make them accessible to the reading public. The same applies to newspapers. Space for the latter was exhausted some time ago and a special barracks was built to store them. It Is now feared that the same plan will have to be adopted for the books. j ; S ' ir ; , : EE 1 i 5 : , , : SS ; j r , ! i -25 w.pena on rnoxocntmmry. , iue l.IlwW1.rinu. un un rays under the Influence of the !

MORE FRENCH MARRIAGES Wow Double the Number In 1t1S, aiul Births Increase. The number of marriages In Prance lias doubled, the number of births Increased, while fewer deaths are registered In 1920 than In 1918. the last full year of peace. This Is shown by the official figures Just published try the ministry of labor. The excess of Wrths over deaths In 1920 was 159.T90, s compared to 8,014 ln 1918. The marriages totaled 623,869 ta WOO against 312.030 In 1918. The slioiificance of these figures Is increased when It Is remembered that the total population of Franc has decreased sensibly as a result of the war.
