New England's Fisheries

WHEN the Pilgrims sent their agent from and preserving of their products, does New

Leyden in 1618 to secure the consent of the English crown to the settlement they proposed making in America, King James asked, "What profit might arise?" The single word, "Fishing", was the reply. But the colonists did not intend to engage in fishing as a business. Only by chance did they land at Plym-, outh Bay and by dint of circumstances they took to the sea for a means of livelihood.

Once realizing the value of this industry, however, the Massachusetts General Court soon passed enactments "for the encouragement of men to set upon fishing". In the year 1641, Governor Winthrop reported 300,ooo dry fish sent to market-the early beginning of a business that in 1918 brought to Boston, Gloucester and Portland, alone, over 300,000,000 pounds of fish, valued at more than $10,000,000.

England's interest extend. The latest available statistics report that Maine and Massachusetts together, in 1914, canned nearly 5,000,000 cases of fish and oysters-more than half the total in the United States-and over 100,000,000 pounds of cured fish.

New England has nurtured from infancy many other industries for which she is famed, besides her fisheries, and she possesses ports on the Atlantic which make her the natural marketplace for European and South American trade. The Old Colony Trust Company of Boston is prepared to render every financial service to those wishing to benefit by her many commercial advantages of location and

resources.

We shall be glad to mail you our booklet, "Your Financial Requirements and How We Can Meet Them", outlining our many facilities.

"NOT AT HOME” DWARD BOK, in his recently publis autobiography, tells this story of author of "Alice in Wonderland," "Le Carroll," otherwise C. L. Dodgson, i whom he sought a series of articles. A great difficulty (for the author le secluded life at Oxford and rarely admi any one into his confidence), Mr. Bok introduced to the Rev. Charles L. De son, a tutor in mathematics.

"You are quite in error," said mathematician, when Mr. Bok had st his errand. "You are not speaking to person you think you are addressing."

"Do I understand, Mr. Dodgson," claimed Mr. Bok, "that you are 'Lewis Carroll' that you did not 'Alice in Wonderland"?"

For an answer the tutor rose, went i another room, and returned with a be which he handed to Bok. "That is book," he said simply. It was entit "An Elementary Treatise on Deter nants," by C. L. Dodgson. It was a copy the book which he had sent to Que Victoria when she requested a pers copy of the famous story.

"As I said in the beginning," contin Mr. Dodgson, "you are in error. Yaa not speaking to Lewis Carroll.'"

And nothing that Mr. Bok could s do, despite the fact that he expended t hours in the effort, could break down t

NEWLY FOUND ANCIENT DWELLINGS

EWS despatches from Denver record t discovery of prehistoric ruins of t cliff-dwelling settlements in a canyon of the junction of the Yamoa and Gra Rivers, in a remote section of the nor western corner of Colorado, as reported Professor Jean A. Jeancon, agent of United States Bureau of Ethnology.

James Loftus, ranchman, of Yough Colorado, brought word of the findin together with a detailed description of ruins. Discoveries of incalculable val to science and history have been ma in the ruins, according to Profes Jeancon.

Homesteaders' curiosity aroused by t ancient and peculiar canyon walls and ove hanging ledges, partially eclipsed by "long, deep opening, resembling a gr pair of lips, with flat, stone-colored teet fed Loftus to make an investigation of t ruins, he said to-day.

In the rooms he declared he fo wicker baskets filled with what appear to be grain. Two skeletons were found one of the rooms. Pieces of pottery baked clay were littered about the floor the houses.

HOOTING Over the heads of an enemy is

Soit to be responsible for some of the great waste of ammunition in warfare; this often results from the involuntary raising of the gun as the excited soldier jerks the trigger instead of "squeezing it off." An American army officer has invented what is called a relaxing trigger to insure better marksmanship. The new trigger is pulled clear back, and then, after the pressure on it ceases, it moves forward and fires the gun automatically.

The exportation of locomotives and steel rails furnishes an interesting indication of the trend of reviving trade. In September, according to the "Railway Age," in a total of 154 locomotives bought, France took the largest number, and was followed by Italy, Cuba, China, and Spain. Of rails, Cuba took the greatest amount, and was followed by Canada, Brazil, French Africa, and Sweden. Of freight cars, the largest number were bought by France, while Poland, Mexico, Cuba, and Italy followed in the order named.

A reader of The Outlook vouches for this juvenile reflection upon the higher education: The young uncle had just returned from college on a vacation and was telling his very small niece about Central Park. "Some day," he said, "uncle will take you there and you shall ride on one of the little donkeys." "But, Uncle Harry, what is a donkey? You must tell me. I've never been to college, you know."

From Calcutta a subscriber sends an advertisement clipped from an Allahabad paper, which he says furnishes an interesting comment on Indian family life :

Unusual prosperity as a result of the high price of cotton was responsible, according to the New York "Times," for a little mixup in the plans of Sambo and Mandy. They had both saved money, and finally each concluded to spend some of it in a present to the other. "Ah's goin' shoppin'!" Sambo announced one morning. Mandy followed at noon. They shopped independently and returned in triumph at supper. Each one had a surprise for the other, which neither would divulge till the morning. Daylight brought their surprises -together. Two big furniture vans backed up to the two-room cabin, and from each was brought forth a shiny upright piano! Sambo and Mandy had each bought a piano and paid cash for it.

How Constipation Follows a Derangement of the Mechanism, and How It can Most Effectually be Relieved

T the rear of the abdomen lies a great" plexus plexus" or nerve center that works in a manner similar to a telephone central switchboard. It receives messages from nerves in various regions of the body and transmits them to minor nerve centers or "ganglia," which directly act on the muscles to be stimulated. Its principal function is to keep in operation various mechanical processes, of which the most important is the proper elimination of food waste.

The presence of food waste in the colon ready for discharge causes a message to pass to this plexus. The plexus immediately forwards this message on to the smaller nerve centers which directly control the muscles of elimination in the walls. of the colon.

Constipation results from failure of the colon muscles to respond to orders. These muscles may fail because the waste matter in the colon is hard and dry, or because of reaction from over-stimulation created by salts, pills, castor-oil, mineral waters, etc. They are "tired out" and unable to respond-just as a jaded horse can no longer respond to the whip.

[blocks in formation]

* In succeeding issues of this publication will appear other articles on the elimination of food waste, based upon the conclusions of leading medical authorities.
