When President Harding prepared himself for the responsibilities of his great office by spending a few weeks fishing In Florida he added one more to the long list of notables who have been devotees of that sport. It Is recorded that Noab was not -only agood boatman, but a skillful angler as well. Long before the flood, and far away In the mists of time, there Is a Babylonian legend that Bel us, son of Nlm-rod, discovered fishing. The first authentic record of angling appears when the Lord asks Job: "Can't thou taW out a fish with a hookf' The great Homer immortalises the art In the Hied' and "Odyssey," stating that godlike men. when pinched for dinner fished with crooked hooks,, and even dived for oysters. It wan Plato, the Greek philosopher, who once aa'd: "There Is nothing Jn angling that I noble., or daring, or requiring skill." Charlemagne, who dominated western Europe In the eighth century advised his subjects to take up the art of angling In order to be content "Because," said h. "I have never yet known nn angler who was melancholy." , . '. But the greatest fisherman and philosopher of modern times Is undoubtedly Sir Izaak Walton. In Ms "Cora-pleat Angler" he Indicates the progress of fishing, particularly on luring trout. ' He bad a different, colored fly for every month in the year. His books are a source of Information for all. and it has been said that In them a child may wade and the tallest giant swim. "Angling,", said Izaak, " Is like mathematics, In that it ran never be fully learned, at least not so fully hut that there will always be room for experiment b.v ome succeeding angler." Detroit News. . THAT'S THE STORY HE TELLS But It Certainly Was Unfortunate that the "Tonic" Should Explode When It Did. An Indiana manufacturer recently enjoyed a restful Sunday In the quiet of his own home, a steady downpour of rain giving every assurance of his not being disturbed. Early In the evening, however, be concluded a little walk would be beneficial, and remembering his wife having mentioned she was In need of another bottle of her favorite springtime remedy, he donned a raincoat and braved the elements. Pocketing his purchase, and homeward bound, he thought to have a look in on the evening service at the church of which he was a devoted and valued member. Standing In the rear of the church, as there was an unusually large congregation,' he became much interested In . the sermon, when to his horror there came a terrific bang, fob-lowed by a deluge ot foam' flying in every direction; all eyes were. turned hta way and the sermon temporarily discontinued while the erstwhile devout church member beat his hasty retreat amid the laughter of the entire congregation, having no opportunity to explain that he was carrying home a harmless bottle of "tonic" for his wife. Gold Found In Ireland. The recent discovery of gold In the streams- of County Westmeath, Ireland, calls attention to the fact that the ancient .tribesmen "of that count try must have been expert metallurgists. Although not noted as a gold producing country, Ireland Is one of the greatest storehouses of antiquities in the world. It is a literal mine of; personal ornaments, Implements, rings, torques and other Celtic an tiquitles. Eemble observed- that "wjth the sole exception of the museums of Scandinavia, there Is scarcely one European collection which shows anything like so great . a. wealth of personal ornaments made of the precious metal as Ireland." It Is almost certain that the gold ornaments found In such abundance were made from the precious metal found In Irish streams. Elevated Railroad far Cuba.

Ambitious for the advancement ot his people, one of their leaders sought seclusion In the forest, and during a period of fasting and prayer appealed to the "Master ef,Ufe" for help-to check the destructive: wars among the nations. After seven days, Mon-damln, a messenger from the Great Spirit, appeared and for four days this leader wrestled with, olm and, defeating him, burled the body under the leafy mold where It fell. , Through the whispering, trees came the command from above to keep the Soil loose above the resting place of the conquered spirit, and 10 a short time spears ot greerv sprang up and with the autumn coloring came the ripening grain that was to be the food of the Indian forever. No longer was It necessary for them to depend for subsistence upon wild grains , and game the Great Spirit had supplied them with a wonderfully nourishing cereal, 'that mixed with dried meat sustained them In the arduous physi cal undertakings demanded by their primitive mode of living. Corn was the answer to the prayers for help in the advancement of the race. Mondamin Is still the "Friend of Man," but it appears to be sadly neglected by the present generation, possibly through ignorance of its nourishing qualities as a foodstuff and its cheapness. From the Corn Bulle tin. v- IMMENSE ARMY OF VOTERS Almost One-Half the' Population of the ' Country Has the Privilege' , , of the Ballot Approximately one-half ot the population of the United States Is of voting age, If findings announced by the census bureau for two states in which age statistics on the 1920 census returns havo been worked out indicate conditions In all others.

Big Redwood Falls. '. A giant has fallen. The Lafayette, the tallest tree in the Calaveras grove, 300 feet high, with a diameter of SO feet ' at T its- base, has yielded to the wind, and lies "on the ground: This tree, was one of the: sequoias, those towering redwoods of California. Edwin Markham has described "them thus: They are the Titans of our forests yes. the Titans of the forests-of the world. The seqtfolas are the oldest living things on the globe; the' survivors' of a widespread family or race of trees which flourished back In ' the Miocene era, before the age of ice. But they all perished In the glaplal age, except a, few in the sheltered canyon in the southern belt of California. The Calaveras , grove In the north is the one 'whose story has run most widely on the Hps of the world." John M.ulr estimated the aga of a certain sequoia In the King's River . forest at 4,000 years. This tree had been burned down; These monarch of the woods should be carefully guarded, from commercial raids as well as otherwise. ' . Nickels In Phone Pay Statlena. Twenty million dollars in nickels were dropped In the slots of psy station telephones throughout the United States during the- first. ten months of 1820, according to an estimate by A. E.

To Illustrate graphically the 120.000,000 ' expenditure he explained that the nickels, if placed edge to edge, would form a Una from New York city to San Francisco and then extend 1,000 miles Into the Pacific ocean.
