Then the Fakir releases his attendant uninjured from the bag. A although the trick is performed with All the carelessness imaginable it Calls for note patience skill and exactness than any of tho so called Black Art achievements. From the time the attendant enters the bag both Akir Aud assistant count every breath they Talce.

Is driven to Ira ugly the has a second time. In order to evade the Spear and make it appear to pass through his body the assistant doubles up in As Small a form As possible. His legs Are drawn up close with. The Chip resting upon the Knees and. The arms folded round the lower Llinus across the shins. When in this position at the fiftieth breath the Pear passes under the attendants arms.

A the Patent leather bags Are in almost every Case moire effective than any of the other leathers. The details of the bags give them individuality even when shapes vary Little and the last word seems to have been said in the matter of fittings. V for luncheon downtown there is a smaller bag also used for matinee purpose containing the indispensable vanity equipment Mirror powder puff or cloth and possibly other items. It May have the Little opera glasses and fan too. A for visits a Flat envelope bag or Small handsome bag with handle is the thing if one carries anything in leather a purse or bag of netted Gold Silver or gunmetal is often preferred but it should be Large enough to hold cards As Well As handkerchief and if one is travelling by car a Small change purse.

Proper ser vice e the Young housekeeper setting up her own establishment sometimes finds it difficult to instruct the maid who serves the family meals to do the work noiselessly. Acid properly. Perhaps the first principle to learn is that everything should be handed to the left Side of the person who is sitting which enables them to serve themselves easily with the right. In laying the table one must have an Eye to preserving balance with everything that is put on. That is if a Salt cellar is placed at one Side there must be another in the corresponding place on the other. A Fern or a dish of Fri t or even an empty dish if it is a pretty one must la Lwy is be placed in the very Center. Around that Are the. Extra Forks and spoofs As attractive As you can arrange front of the places of persons who Are to be seated there must be a plate. The Inife is put at the right Side and the Forks at the left the Tine s pointing up. If there is a a up spoon it goes beside the knife the Oyster Fork also is next to the spoon and knife but that for oysters is the Only Fork that is placed it the right. All the others go to the left. Of More Thlin on is required As for salad after the meal the larger Fork goes next to the plate. Spoons for dessert whether they Are Large or Small Are Over the plate that is Are across the top. The Napkin a should be folded with two Points under and Laid in the plate a Square of bread being tucked away in it if the meal is dinner. Item housekeepers have More Quot than the roast on the table the so Days vegetables being at the Side table from which they Are handed by the. Maid who returns them there after each person has been served. If they Are to be kept on tho table one would be at one Side another at the other Side of tie meat or two dishes Jig lit to put at the foot of the table. That is a matter of individual preference a which each housekeeper decides. A a a ,. The maid serving should Wear Small White Cap and a big apron with bib and straps Over the shoulders and crossing at the Back. Quiet in the. Dining room is a filing that must to striven for by the maid. A noisy person is an abomination and of dishes and clash of Silver should not be permitted.

Of jct i to came pm of of the remarkable achievements of our Bister american republics in irrigation and reclamation demonstrate forcibly the importance and Progress of these nations. Their far reaching work both past and present in this line of material development of their vast areas and limitless resources astonishes the average Man and is Little appreciated throughout the United states. What they have done Are doing and to do rival the most ambitious schemes of this country and make us Admire their Enterprise and Energy. If the irrigation expert of the United states were to visit and inspect the principal reclamation works Between Mexico on the North and Argentina on the far South he would return not Only with new and valuable would be helpful in extending a the work he re but with for the possibilities of our latin american neighbors that would do much to Foster closer relations of Commerce and comity said John Barrett director of the International Bureau of the american Republic sin an address before the National irrigation Congress at Albuquerque n. I -. A a a a a a a 7 irrigation in latin America is no new problem. Iii fact there Are to be found to Day evidences of great irrigating canals and systems built by the aztecs of Mexico and the in Cas of Peru Long before the Spanish Conquest and Eyen the discovery of America. A few facts illustrative of what they had accomplished in the line of irrigation before Europe invade the new world May be of interest. The student of the problem of irrigation will find abundant material in Mexico. Peru and the Argen Tine Republic to prove the beneficial work done by these Early Peoples. Let us look for a moment at Peru. The incas. The peruvian aborigines were thorough agriculturists and although much of the country along the Seao coast suffered from want it if water As Little or no rain Feir there Many places were capable of being reclaimed and indeed needed Only to be properly irrigated to is susceptible of extraordinary products ohm to these spots water was conveyed by Means of canals and a Subterran Ous aqueducts executed on a Noble scale. They consisted of Large slabs of Freestone. Nicely fitted together without Cement and discharged a volume of water sufficient by Means of latent ducts or sluices to moisten the lands in the lower lever through which they passed. A. Some of these aqueducts were of great length. One that traversed the District of cond Suvo measured Between four and five Hundred Miles. They were brought from some elevated Lake or natural Reservoir in the heart of the mountains and were fed at intervals by other. Basins which Lay in their route along the slope of the sierras. In this descent a passage was sometimes to by opt net through Rock without the a Aid of Iron tools impracticable mountains were to be turned Rivers arid marshes to be a crossed in Short the same obstacles we re to be encountered As in the construction of their nighty roads. Near Catamarca a Tunnel is stir visible which they excavated in the mountains to give an outlet to the Waters of a Lake. Most of these Beneficent works of the incas were buffeted to go to decay by their Spanish conquerors. In some spots the Waters Are still left to flow in their silent Subterran Ous. Channels whose windings and Whoso sources have been alike unexplored. Others thou Ger partially dilapidated and cios a up with rubbish still be a tray their course. Such remains Arefi a id in the Valley of Nasca where the ancient water courses of the in Cas measuring four or five feet in depth by three in Width and formed of Large blocks of. Una Ementi a Asony Are conducted from an Uri known source. A coming to the Northern continent we find again marvelous evidences of reclamation work. T to aztecs had a most Complete. Id Well Era rigid system of irrigation. They a ibid water from the Mountain streams and had a knowledge of Dike building they surround.ed their Fields with Hedges. A a of Stone and directed in Nav a through them they showed Aiso Gopd-.judff-1 ment in the management of Timeir ground. When it was exhausted it was permitted to fallow and its extra me dryness was relieved by Caria la with which the land was irrigated. Around the City of m0x�oc9 the District was Check ered with patches of Indian Corn and plantations of Cacao which required constant it a but what is latin a a inert cd i doing to Day to solve this Gre it problem which is attracting the attention of the entire world surely it is making great strides in this As in All other directions. So me of there. Public Are so a fortunately situated that the problem of irrigation is no yet a necessary ohm. Because their a areas Are Well blessed with Abu Ridant streams and sufficient rainfall. For the present thar needs Are filly met by the natural water Supply of the. Cultivated Fields v the questions of great costly irrigating schemes Hava not come immediately before them. The rapid Progress these countries Are a making however and the steady increase in population wiil undoubtedly necessitate the same consid ration of this problem which we Are today giving it in. The United states the great majority of our sister nations Are a reaching practical solutions of the demands of the agriculturists. Other countries like Uruguay and Paraguay Are so Well watered that there has been no great Call for artificial irrigation. It in the Mountain countries however the rainfall May be great but the valleys sometimes need water during the dry season _ and consequently the problem of or it a ligation becomes a practical one. In Ecuador the minister of the Interior and Public Wirka is very Active in encouraging All plans for the Extension of modern agricultural meth ods wherever applicable. The water Supply of the cities at present a vital problem is receiving particular attention but hand in hand with this goes a the use of water tor irrigation Pur posts and careful study is Given to the latter As Well As to the former near Quito new Drain and irrigation pipes have been Laid at considerable expense and. In the province of a Tel Oroz noticeable Progress has been made on the Rivers Calu buro Buena Vista and pita., by doing too much for their children parents make themselves incs Cable of doing much for themselves
