Persians and emigrated to India on the conquest of their country by >the Arabs they in the eighth century and incidentally they constitute the richest nation in the world. "My father, Dorubji Saklatvala, was a Parsee priest, and when a boy I was sent to another priest for iii struction in the tenets of that faith, said Mr. Saklatvala, "A beggar among the Parsees i unknown in India and would be scandal to the sect. The sagacity activity and commercial eutei'prise o the Parsees are .proverbial in the East, and tfceir credit as merchants is almost unlimited. Because of intermarriage the race has dwindled' down to seventy-live thousand, and X foi some time there has been a serious difference'among the Parsees on the question of proselytism. A Parsee married a "French •woman, who took the necessary steps to adopt the religion of her husband. But it was decreed by.the high court of India that though the creed of Zoroas- ter theoretically admitted proselytes, ther admission was not consistent with the practice of the Parsees in India. "This narrow view is what has to be broken down," continued Mi-. Sale-' latvala. "The Parsees still hold thn.f one must.be born into that faith ami say that those who seek admission are people who wish to participate in the great wealth of the nation. The priestly office is hereditary, and no one can become a priest who was not born such; but the son of a priest may become a layman, as in my case. l|studied for the priesthood, so as to get my name in' the lineage register of the nation. However,'I have married ;i. wonderful American woman, but live by .tlur 1 teachings of Zoroas- ter, which religion may be summarized in a' sentence, "Good thoughts. words and deeds." Mr. Saldatvala denies the Parsees are fire worshippers. In our temples," he said, "are placed siJver vases, 'where. ;i, lire ot sandaUvood is constantly kept burning, night and .day. The walls and ceiling of the temple are snow, white Or color. The idea of the lire is to lix-. the wandering minds of the people who come to pray upon a manifestation of God. It could have been river, a lake or a mountain, but mountain is too large to bo put in a temple, so we have something that s small—a lire that burns overlust- ngly. The prayers are not to the lire, but to God, for our doctrine is lure monotheism." The Parsees in India, are nuicli nore liberal in their treatment of vbraen than any other Asiatic nice; •they allow them to appear freelx iii public and leave' them the entire management of .their household affairs. "Every day .is Sunday with the followers of Zoroaster," lie responded to a question." "i was working in my garden ou« Sunday when a neighbor came along and asked what day of the week the Parsees celebrated as Sunday. I replied: 'Mine is bad religion, I fear, for it makes ws say prayers.seven days of the week.'

Muir, commander of the-Ninth Corns .area of the Unite J States Army, has trisected an angle with dividers and a, righ tangled ruler. '. Ihe announcement was made by General Muir, following reports Uiat an Eastern i mathematician had. so.lv,- ed the "liroUlem, "but want not r>ouUy to -announce his method." Capva.iu Price is a University of Pennsylva- uia Jrouor student in mathematics. •Captain Price has not only effected a solution of. the problem, n;;t his din grams and particulars of Uis achievement' are 011 (lie with the war department, General Muir star.- ad. Briefly here is Captain Price's solution: To trisect an'angle with di.-iders end light-angiert riUer: Draw tangents .to Us sides at equal distances from the angle. Measure the distance from the. side bl' the anglo to tlie intersection of the tun- geuts. Lay off twice this distance, on ;i ;-.l.raight line and trisect it. (IJs- the regular geometric mcf.hw.l 'or dividing a straight line into any given number ol! parts.) Lay off the resulting thinl on each tangent separately, measuring from the side of the angle''toward the intersection of the tangents. Connect the angle with the two .points thus obtained , by straight lines. : Trisect the chord from the bases of the tangents already drawn and draw straight lines from th,e ti'Jsoc- tion points to the angle. Bisect the second and fourth of the five angles now formed from the original -Angle-. .These bisecting lines will trisect the original angle. ' ' To prove the result correct. Lay oil' equal distances from the- angle on its sides and au* the. trisecting lines. Connect'the nearest lines at these paints with .straight •lines, Tlio result will be triangles whose sides have been, constructed equally, and whose bases will bo found to be orjual by actual measurement. ' ;• Therefore I he throe triangles are' equal taken together form the. oriK- ! inal triangle, the original angle has been trisected.
