An Economic Reason At a meeting of chemical:engineers in Baltimore, II. C. 'Sl'rallon, insurance company executive, m:ide some statements that should interest every employer. The cost of industrial hazards, he contends, does not end with the more payment of money to the employe injured.' Some industrial diseases arc so slow in their inception and detection that employes may work for months or weeks with greatly impaired efficiency. In'the South African gold mining industry alone, he points out, tlie disease of silicosis costs approximately 30 per cent of the value of the gold obtained in the mines. When humanitarian reasons fail to prevail, perhaps this argument, will impress upon employers the wisdom of safeguarding their workers' health.. Stale Boundary Patrols Gov. Fred P'.'. Cone of Florida would seem to have been well-advised in 'ordering-diseolitimiaifcc of the road patrol which guarded the state's borders during the last two winters. This patrol was supposed to keep penniless transients out of the stale, Such people, it was argued, flock into Florida to escape the cold northern winters; some of them had to be supported by tlie stale, and others turned to crime. But a patrol along any state boundary is a bad thing. It smiickii '• altogether of the passport-and-frontier nuisance of Europe. .It is, furthermore, poor protection for the slate involved, for the really undesirable visi- tors'have enough money to come in anyway. .•" • Governor Cone has done well to adopt a new policy. Drivers' Nemesis A story out of New York City seems to carry a moral of some kind for thoughtless drivers. As the traffic light turned on a busy corner, a frail old woman started to cross the street with a crowd. A big car. brusquely nosed its way around the corner. While others scattered out of the way, the old woman stood stiil, seemingly incapable of movement. Just as the car seemed about to hit her, a silk-liatlwl mini, with a cane, limped quickly to her side'and swung her out of harm's way. At the same moment there was a sharp report, and the tire of the car went fiat. Talking to a nearby policeman a few minutes later, a reporter learned that a similar incident had been happening nearly every morning, and that the silk-hatted man figured in each of them. Following up the story, the reporter learned that the man was a former diplomat, whose foot had once been crushed by an automobile; and that it was not a cane he carried, but a. sword stick. The forgotten pedestrian, who has to leap out of the way of Imperious drivers, should be glad to knoty ho has an avenger. Idle Talk It probably is a safe bet that the rival forces in Spain will light it out to the bitter end with the aid of such outside forces as they are able to get, despite all the talk about an international embargo on munitions and recruits. For although this talk is heard in all the great European capitals, the various statesmen don't seem able lo agree on any plan for translating talk into action; and the reason'is fairly obvious—they just don't trust one another. Instead of being genuinely interest- e,di in letitng the Spanish people settle their • troubles by themselves, these eminent statesmen are all thinking of the advantages their own nations can, get put/of the mess—or of the advantages they can keep their rivals from gelling. So the war goes on, niirt an international agreement lo keep it a purely Spanish all air looks very remote. Sftf/SW Society is too sophisticated.

The driver spun : the wheel, turned about, and guided the car on a swiff, drive through the city, out beyond the last factories and mine buildings, find across tlie darkening moors. Dusk turned to night, and the car at last swung olf the road and down a graveled drive between formal rows of poplars. Dimly, 'Paul recognized the place as one of the summer estates of Baron Lanzia. ' the car drew up before a great IDlh- century manor house. The aide guided Paul in through,a side entrance, and led him—by some 'mile-used back hallj apparently—to a second floor ap'art- ,.merit. A guard slood aside, and i the aide tapped on the door.- It i opened, and (he aide asked Paul ' to go in. 'Paul 'entered, and the door-closed behind him. Joseph was standing by a window, precisely as he had been the last time Paul saw him, .in the royal lodge Ihc night of the abdication. He came swiftly across the room and took Paul's hands in his, pressing them hard; for a long minute the brothers looked at each oilier, without speaking. Paul regained command of himself firsl. -: -'"Well, your majesty," he said, smiling. "You see I did borne back." < "You did come back," repealed Joseph unsteadily. He hesitated, and added, "To stay?" '"No. No, Joseph, not to stay. I iim going away again, and this lime I am going forever." "Where are you going?" Paul shrugged. "I don't know. Does it matter very much?" "To me it mailers very much indeed. . . . Paul, why did you come back?" Again Paul shrugged. "To look for something T had lost, I suppose." "Did you find it?" Slowly, Paul shook his head. "No. It is beyond finding,' by now. 1 shan't bother lo look for it again." "What was il?" •; Paul smiled n one-sided smile. "If I wanted lo be Iragic, I suppose I would say that it was my immortal soul. Not wanting to be tragic, I shall merely say that I wanted lo touch my country again, to SOD just what it was that . I lost by leaving it. T touched il, and I found out. That is all. 1 There was another 'silence. Jo. seph laid a hand op Ins i brother's arm. . "Paul, can't you stay, here?" "No, Joseph." It wouldn't do. Can a king who was too small for his crown stay on beside a king VI CATS DO NOT SUCK THE: BREATH or -> BABIES. Tiie Idea still persists today In many sections that cats will suffocate a sleeping.'Child by sucking;Its .breath. However, such a belief Is not based on fact, hut, perhaps, on the fact that cats'.do "like to sit on the chest of a sleeping person, which, In case of babies, makes breathing difficult. • NEXT: • Is llic earth ;i sphere? Change in .Blood's Volume, 'Factors Arc Revealed in Certain.Diseases Hy I)H, MOUKIS FISHIIEIN Editor, Journal of Mic American Medical Association, and of Hygcia, (he Hrallli Magazine' One of the purposes of the blood is lo circulate through the body as a whole various chemical substances, glandular materials, antl fiuid.3 can-ted by the body. The blood constitutes about one- eleventh of the whole body weight, ind a normal human adult lias fl liltle more than six quarts of blood in his body. ; The volume of Ihe Mc-ci is im- porlnnt, because any lessening in its quantity will at once Imverthc pressure and Interfere u-ith the supply of blood received bv the organs.

There was never any jealousy between us, never any suspicion or envy or distrust. You were my idol .when I was a boy. 1 loved you, looked up to you, wanted to pattern myself after you. Can't you stay on—for my sake?" Again Paul smiled sadly and shook his head. He look Joseph's 'land from his arm and patted it gently before he released it. "Joseph, we should know by his time that a king cannot ask for things for his own sake. He can't ask for love or comradeship or the easy, soolhing little things hat make life happy. He is on a jinnaele, and lie is condemned to lonely. It is his curse and his privilege. "Let's look at things honeslly. : was given that task, but there was something soft in me, somewhere. I thought that I could be a man, with a man's homely little desires and weaknesses, when I was born to be a king. You will not make that mistake. You will g6 on, lonely and often very miserable in your high place, because you can see the thing I did not see until too late-^-the chariot of fire that your poet Blake talked about, the new Jerusalem that has ,o be built among the slums and the coal tipples. and the factory ards. And because you see those things, your people will move forward just a little nearer to the place where they can actually build that new Jerusalem." He broke off, for his voice had suddenly become unsteady. T am beginning to talk in pretty flowery language, and that is always a sign that I have said all'that I have to say," he said lightly. "Let's not be tragic. I go and you stay. I leave my love with you. You know that. Give me yours—and your royal blessing—and I will go." Joseph started to speak. His voice broke, arid he cried, "Oh, Paul!" and threw his arms about his older brother. Then, at last, lie drew away and mastered himself. "Gopdbjv Paul, and God bless you," he said. * * * T'HE sloop Irene rounded the last headland and lay over before a stiff east wind.
