W.E.TW OF ' \ HWE.TUOUGHTC'F.-ro ^MKOOSlCfcVOU MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE SATURDAY, MARCH 13, 1939 FOR RESULTS -- TRY A G-G WANT AD S A Little Saturday Talk · In a letter from Dorothy Farm, those words appear: "Will you send me the names of the Seven Wonders of tlie 'World?" ·I am glad to do more than that. I am sending Dorothy a leaflet telling about the "Seven Wonders." Lists of the Seven Wonders of the World do not all agree, but here is one I think rather good: The pyramid of Egypt, the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, the Colossus of Rhodes, the Lighthouse of Alexandria, the Temple of Artemis, the Tomb of Mausolus and the Great Wall of China. Quite often in the lists, the Statue of Zeus at Olympia is included instead of the Great Wall of China. To my mind, however, the Great Wall is a greater wonder. Here are n few paragraphs from the leaflet issued for readers of this column: "The Colossus of Rhodes, as it is commonly known, was a statue of the sun-xod Apollo which was reared to mark the defeat of enemies who tried to capture the seaport city of the Greek colonists. "An earthquake shook the statue down, and for centuries it was on the ground; but even as ii ]?.y there, a fallen giant, it was the wonder of all who came to the island, "Among the visitors was Pliny, the famed Roman writer, who said: "Xhis giant statue was once stendfnr at Rhodes. It was the work of Chares, and was no less than 70 cubits (105 feet) high. It was thrown, down by an earthquake. Few men can elasp the thumb in their arms. Where the legs are broken, sreat holes are to be seen. Inside are heavy rocks which Cha.ves used to steady the statue while he was setilnsr it up." "Ancient folk spoke of the Colossus of Rhodes as one of the Seven Wonders of the World. It stood for only 32 years before being cast to the ground by the quake. After lying on tlie ground for almost nine centuries, it was sold to a. jnnk dealer. No one knows what happened to the pieces, but they probably were melted down for other uses." Besides telling about other ancient wonders, the leaflet lists Seven Wonders ot iS'ature. and Seven Modern Wonders. If you would like a copy of the leaflet, write to me and ask for '-Seven Wonders of the World." There is no charge fov it. but you should enclose with your letter a stamped cnvelooe carefully addressed to yourself. Remember this is only a small leaflet containing four illustrations. It probably is worth writing for only if you have special use for it in your school work. (Cojirrirht IMf". P u b l i s h e r .

She and Dinah were whispering together, smiling at (he antics of Bobby Graves and the Jones boy, when the delin-I -- quent Pinky Malone appeared. i Pmky was a short, fat young man.with a neck that fell in folds over his collar, and a girl's complexion--probably the origin of his nickname. He struck an attitude at thc sigh of Jim lolling on the piano bench and strode across the room w i t h a scowl, bringing ' his light brows almost together. | "Ha! A rival!" he complained, i and then the humor died from his ! eyes and gave way to a puzzled look as Jim was introduced. 'Haven't I seen you before?" he asked, and a general laugh went up. "You're supposed to use that one on his wife," Alice Davis told him. "Come on over here and tell Lona y o u v e seen her somewhere before.' She dragged him over to Lonas chair, leaning her tall bulk on his chubby shoulder ludierous- "I meant what I said of your husband," he told Lona when he had greeted her. He was evidently still mulling something over in his mind, and pausing beside her his eyes went back to Jim speculatively. "There is something familiar- wait a minute! I've got it !Where does your husband work?" ."On the new bridge," Lona told him. We've only been in town a few days. Perhaps you've seen him-.',',', ic ' s a structural iron work"Yes. But why?" Lona stared at him curiously. Across !he room the rest of them were pressing Jj m for more songs, and Pinky leaned toward her and lowered his voice 'There was a fellow showed me a Picture of him today," he ^aid "A picture!" i " Vcs - " was cut from a ,,ews- !
