The decision determined whai should be paid to railroads for "under maintenance" claims during the six months following federal control. While only a comparatively small sum is involved in these six months, the principles laid down by the uommis- sign probably will be followed in set- tling claims that accrued during the 26 months when the roads were operat- ed by the government. The railroads claimed that the gov- ernment in making settlements with them should allow for the claims tha~ labor had become inefficient under federal control, that wages were high- er, that property bought for the roads by the government had depreciated in value and that materials used iu main- teaance cost more. The commission rejected the depre- ciation "claim both as to labor and material. Director General Davis has estimat- ed that the under-maintenance claims of the roads amount to about $750,000,- 000. It was roughly estimated that the claims for "inefficiency of labor and depreciation of materials" might total half of this or even more. HOW NOVEL SERVES PURPOSE Tende to Bring Back, to the Mind, at Laast, Perfect Momente That Are Gone. " Men, when they are young aml eager aLid adventurous, haYe COluparatively little need for linaglnatlve books; hut when their eagerness Is dulled, whez/ they have reached more contemph~tive years, then the recorded poetry of ex lstence (.an be a priceless recOlUl)ense. But It must, In order to endnre, have the beauty of form and courage, nlid II must be universal to the heart. A peculiarity of such literature is that the women In It are visionary, imma- terial, rat]mr than realistically ac- counted for; they. too, are apt to be dreamlike, forever slipping beyond the circle of an embrace. I can't eVetl ,pretend to exl)laln this. A woman fs at tbe center of nearly every living accomplishment of art, at the center of the written or of the writer. Wom- en, like the poor, are always with us; but how often, for how tong, Is ao adored figure at our sides? How many perfect moments has a man in the long months of hie life?

And parents, uncon- sciously, are many times at fault, and actually tncuJcate boldness in their little ones, quoting their clever re- marks while the chlhlren are around, Insisting that they "show off" souls accontpllshment. The forward youngster is not apt to be brighter than the shy one, bur he receives the credit because of his readiness to do and to talk.. Perhaps nature's recouipense for less ability Is the courage to exploit what one has. Sheer initiative alone--with, of course, sufficient ability to back it up--ls bound to make a leader. Do not too summarily curb the youngster with the bold spirit--rather train htm tn courtesy and in common sense and so teach him the valuelesz- hess of foolhardiness. Fuller's Earth. l~ller'a earth is a variety uf clay ~metlmes used for cleaning cloth that has been soiled by grease or oil. It Is in the form of a fine pow(ler, whicb Is very porous. When applied to cloth the earth absorbs the grease. Fuller's earth formerly Was used In factories for scouring woolen fabrics, but other methods have replaced it. It Is com- posed of alumina, slllca, magnesia and lime, and feels like powdered soap. Certain silicious rocks yield this ina- terlal upon decomposition, and de~ -posits of It are found lie Floridn and tenth Dakota. Some years ago :1 filet~ quality of the clay was discovered Ill the mining lands near Denver. Pack- era use the earth for refinh|g lard. It is found In large quantities in Ger- many and other parts of Europe. True Art Selects and Paraphrase. When the novelist Introduces a bore into his novel he must not let him bore tim reader. The fellow must be made amusing, which he would not be in real life. In nlne' cases out of ten an exact repreductlon of real life would prove tedious. Facts are not necessarily valuable, and frequently they add nothing to fiction. The art of the realistic novelist sometimes seems akin to that of th'e Chinese tailor who perpetrated the old patch on the uew trousers. True art selects and i~raphrases, but seldom-gives a vet batlm t ranslath, n.--Thomas Bailey Aldrich. Everyday Procedure.
