The flying of kites was for many ears regarded as childish sport, but those toys, as men were wont to re- gard them, have become in tho present ay most valuabl aids to science. But the strangest of all kites yet in- ented Is one constructed by the fam- >us Swedish engineer, Sjoatrand. This kite is not to be flown in the air. It Is to fly beneath the waters of he sea. Thls novel kite is '-t Hfc'ht canvas adjusted to but strong metal frame, and in shape is not dis- similar to the aorlal kite except that t is made In two sections, the lower .nd smaller one depending from the upper, with which it is connected by a :ort of coupling. The object sought by Mr. Sjostrand was to provide ships with an ever ready automatical guard or watch that would give Instant alarm If the essel enters shoal waters and is approaching spot where the depth is not sufficient 'or safety. The under water Kite is fasieued to i thin wire cable attached to a winch on deck. When the kite Is thrown overboard it sinks in consequence of the oblique pressure brought to bear upon It by tho water, juflt as the land kite is raised and maintained aloft by the pressure of the air. With the winch the kite is lowered or raised at will, and before a portion of this winch Is a scale and register that tells the depth In fathoms or meters al which It Is floating. Tho curve of the cable to which kite Is attached never varies whatever California Califof] WHERE THE AUTOS the speed of the vessel or tho condi- tion of the so that the kite always romnlns at tho exact depth "y winch. The purpose of the water kite Is to float beneath or beside the ship at depth that is sufficient to Insure safety. If, at any time, day or night, the ower section of the kite strikes hot- om the "signal pencil." as it Is called, nstantly releases the coupling with which it Is secured to the upper sec- Ion and an alarm bell is sounded on he deck of the endangered vessel. Precautions can at once be taken to ecure Its safety. The kite meanwhile Is drawn up, readjusted and thrown overheat d to maintain Its faithful watch. During recent experiments with this submarine kite it was noticed that the- vessel was followed by whole schools of fish, that semed fascinated by the queer, new Inhabitant of the ocean. The flsh disappeared when the ves- sel came to anchor and the submerged kite lost Its motion. WHY do we say: "Mind your p's and BECAUSE, In ancient limes, behind the door of each ale-house there hung a slate, on which was written, P., which stood for pint, and Q., which stood for quart. A number was placed opposite each customer's name. accord- Ing to the amount he Imbibed. He was not expected to pay until Satur- day evening, when he had to "mind his p's and q's."

Each of the families has a home commensurate, with an auto- mobile. A few of them uavu several motor cars, but It is a rare house that does not have at least one. The roads stretching across the state to the Delaware and from Trenton and New Brunswick northward to Orange county, New York, are perhaps the best in tho country.

These verses, which have places In scores of od scrap books, were primed n newspapers in all parts of the Uni: ed States a quarter of a century aso. Whether or not they originally peared anonymously have been tin- able to learn, for In no instance do we find the name of the author accom- panying the poem. The lines are grace- fully written, and the dignity of toll is pictured with a vigor and fidelity to truth which make the poem especially appropriate for readers of the Scrap Book at a time -when nearly all the states in the union are preparing for the celebration of Labor Day. Anonymous. Toll swings the axe, and forests bow; The seeds break, out In radiant bloom, Rich harvests smile behind the plow. And cities cluster round the loom; Where towering domes and tapering spires Adorn the vale and crown the hill, Stout labor lights its beacon fires, And plumes with smoke the forge and mill. The monarch oak, the woodland's pride, Whose 'trunk is seamed with light- ning scars, Toll launches on the restless tide. And there unrolls the flag of stars; The engine with its lungs of flame, And ribs of brass and joints of steel, From Labor's plastic fingers came, With sobbing valve and whirling wheel. 'Tls Labor works the magic press. And turns the crank In hives of toll, And beckons angels down to bless Industrious hands on sea and soil. Here sun-browned Toll, with shining spade, Links lake to lake with silver ties Strung thick with palaces of trade, And temples towering to the skies.

But 'urther than that tho residents of the neighborhood are flrm in their reso- utlon that they shall not come.

So frequent are the motor cars along the highways that horses no longer pay any attention to them, and a source of danger and alarm is thus being eliminated and will probably pass altogether before long. The only obstacle at present Is the severe mo- tor law of the state, but the residents of this neighborhood have conformed In advance to Its provisions with ref- erence to licenses, and the mounted who patrol the roads in Es- sex and Morris counties seem to re- gard it as their duty to protect tho automobiles and to view speed with a slow eye.
