ENGLISH LIGHTSHIP GOES TO GRAVEYARD THE NORE, England (#>).—A battered old tub of a vessel, towed into the Thomas estuary a century ago, is going home to rest its barnacle-encrusted sides in a ship-breaker's graveyard. The Nore lightship, oldest of her kind afloat, was manned by crews who saw sail give way to steam, motorships encroach on the domain of steamships and aircraft drone overhead, heralding a new age of fast transport. Her successor looks like a luxury yacht on a cruise. A pair of bloodhounds imported from the United States is being used 1o build up a. corps of canine sleuths which will be available to Scotland Yard and chief constables in England and Wales. MODEST MAIDENS nrt Reitintert-d U. S. Patent Office "Getting fined for speeding uwsn't bad enough You liad to give the judge a hot-foot!" The stars seem to indicate that efforts to reduce wages.will cause trouble in certain industries in the autumn. Adjustments, however, are prognosticated. This is not a lucky date for signing legal papers. Contracts may be unsatisfactory. Leases should be postponed. Changes in viewpoint will be many and confusing this month. Although there is a sign read as foreshadowing clear mental vision and foresight, there may be much muddled thinking and unstable public opinion. Severe thunder storms, high winds and sudden weather changes are prognosticated. Heat waves will cause great suffering in many cities, especially in the West and South. Earthquakes again will disturb dwellers in widely separated states. One that will affect attendance at an exposition is presaged, but it may not be severe in its results.
