FOR INTELLECTUAL FAKIRS One of the secrets of appearing well-informed is to be able, offhand, to give the speed of light, the measurements of the universe and, by comparison, the approximate size of electrons. Many of our readers are familiar with the first two requirements lifted above but the size of the electron may baffle them. For their use, just in case they need accurate figures, the latest measurements of the electron give its mass as 0.000000000000000000-000000000905 I gram. Intellectual fakirs, unable to pronounce this simple number, can get by casually mentioning the fact that a decimal point and 27 zeroes precede the 9051. She thought!

Nebraska, where a new unicameral legislature of 43 members wilj be tried out, will undoubtedly attract much altenfioii during the coming year. " The idea was advocated by Senator George Norris and, while not new, is, in the present era, entirely novel. The veteran NebraS-kfi, who has given valuable service to his state and the nation as well, thinks it an important reform and it may be, but we doubt it. ' ' The members of the one-house legislature have been elected as non-partisans. The salary, we believe, will be more than that formerly given members of the house and may attract better type men, thus assuring a more business-like administration of state affairs. The experiment is certainly worth watching. If it demonstrates the virtues that its advocate expects, other states will likely follow suit. "And what's the matter with that?" she flashed.

At any moment Colonel McCarthy might return. Probably with renewed antagonism, because of his sciatica, due to a dampness in the air today and because of the gulf that divided fifty-seven from nineteen. ' Jealous of youth! Wanting his own life over again! Hating the feast of years and happiness that stretched before her! So thought Elizabeth, who had studied books of psychology in college, and found them illuminating, though depressing. She bitterly resented the Colonel's criticism.
