THE BREMEN ENQUIRER. THURSDAY, JULY 3, 1924. 3 SERVICES AT THE CHURCHES OIL COMPANIES pavement, which cannot be later than 3100 B. C, was an accumulated deposit of 15 feet, representing at least 1500 to 2000 years' previous occupation, and therefore going back to about 5000 B. C. A complete sequence of pottery from the earliest Sumerian period down to Nebuchadnezzar has been established, and a series of fine copper implements has been found. The general result of the excavations brings into prominence the enormous extent of the ruins, which if grouped contiguously, would cover 120 acres, the very great antiquity of the site, and the priority of the Sumerians. HALED TO COURT A Combination of Fun, Facts and Foolosophy up of nearly 10,000 small pieces of Balkan oak, seasoned for ten years, and given resiliency ,toughness and imperviousness to atmospheric changes by a lengthy baking process. Smoothness of surface was attained by pressing with electric irons, and the necessary spring is imparted by a suspension system involving the use of thousands of steel springs and wires. Although strong enough to bear 250 tons, its resiliency is retained, and regular "tuning" keeps it sensitive. Floors laid on rubber and felt are comparatively common; but they have many disadvantages. Thin floors laid on a yielding foundation are very pleasant to the dancers while they are new, but they soon become worn in patches and may even become splintery . Parquet floors, highly polished and laid on a solid foundation, are very tiring after an hour's dancing, al liv II ill 1 V II I I J Conducted. Concocted and Confiscated THAT BLASTED LAMB AGAIN.

A petition In equity filed here by direction of Attorney General Stone charges fifty of the most Important oil companies In the United States with violation of the Cherman antl-trut law and prays for an Injuno-tlor to restrain the companies from further violations. The complaint was forwarded by the attorney general to United States District Attorney Edwin Olson, who filed It In the Federal District court. Big Companies Named. The primary defendants named are the Standard Oil Companies of Indiana and New Jersey, the Standard Development company, the Texas company and the Gasoline Products company. Attorney General Stone charges thin the companies have combined to control production of gasoline by pooling of patent rights In violation of the anti-trust law. Complaint Is Serious. In substance, the complaint sets forth that the defendants are utilizing processes for "cracking" gasoline, thus greatly Increasing the output from a given quantity of stock. The bill alleges that the "cracking" process has been known for the last sixty years and that the original patents covering the Invention have long since expired. In spite of this, It is charged, the defendants have pooled patents on unimportant improvements and thus have been enabled to "extort huge sums from the manufacturers of gasoline In the guise of royalties and by means of certain restrictive covenants contained In license agreementa Washington. Additional legal proceedings directed at leading oil companies are In prospect, but no criminal action is In contemplation.

In a letter to the London Times of January 22, Professor Langdon, writing from Mesopotamia, gives an account of the results to date of this season's excavations at Kish. Among an amount of pearl and limestone inlaid work discovered in a mound constructed entirely of' plano-convex bricks, characteristic of the oldest Sumerian architecture, was a rectangular tablet of slate which shows a king of Kish smiting his Sumerian enemies. Their closely shaven heads, cheeks and upper lips, but long beards, indicate a date earlier than Ur-La-gash, c. 3100 B. C. Taken with other pearl heads found here, this disposes of the theory that the Semites occupied Kish in the prehistoric period. The discovery north of Inghara of two large Sumerian buildings in a state of complete preservation has made possible the preparation of the only known plan of a large Sumerian palace.

For several minutes the young man did not speak. His heart was too full. It was enough for him to know that this glorious creature loved him; that she had promised to be his wife. With a new and delightful sense of ownership he feasted his eyes upon her beauty and realized that henceforth it would be his privilege to provide for her welfare and happiness. His good fortune seemed incredible. Finally he whispered, tenderly, "How did it happen, darlinir, that such a bright shining angel as yourself fell in love with a dull, stupid fellow like me?"
