It is the placing of orders for 200 modern pursuit planes and 35 Martin type bombers, which will cost approximately $2,240,000. The pursuit planes of the Thomas Morse type, thoroughly up to date in every particular, were ordered from the Boeing company of Seattle, Wash. The Martin type bombers were ordered from the L. W.

The latter will be equipped with Liberty motors to be furnished by the War department. Discussing plans for betwen the War, Navy and Postoffice departments In the matter of aviation management and development, Secretary Weeks said the commission named by the President for this purpose would seek to evolve some plan for air routes which could re used commercially, if possible; to prepare a code of laws for government of the air service In the United States; the adoption of standard machines for various purposes to aid the Postoffice department In standardizing their . Aviators; to adopt some plan for meeting damages created by government planes in the performance of duty, and to combine, if possible, the training schools of various departments and landing fields wherever practicable to do so. - His Sales Tax Bill of the sales tax bill, introduced Senator Smout of Utah, shows that the bill imposes a tax of 1 per cent on all turnovers, with an annual exemption of $6,000, the effect of this being to exempt smaller farmers and tradesmen. It has been estimated that the per cent would yield more than $2,000,000,000 annually. In a statement in behalf of the plan Senator Smoot says its advantages are Text Washington.-People who complaint about the weather, Who klckbe cause It Is too hot, too cold or too windy, as the case might be, are reminded by the National Geographic society that the weather is not Most of It comes sweeping In from other countries, blowing up beyond the three-mil- e limit without passport or tariff restrictions. Some of It might bear the brand, Made In the U. S. A., but as a general thing it is Imported. For the most part the American supply of rain, snows, blizzards, cold waves and hot waves, tornadoes and tempests, come tumbling in from the northwest and the west A smaller percentage, the society reports, come from the north and southwest, but now and then the wind In the Gulf of Mexico and the South Atlantic kicks up its heels and there Is trouble. But, say the learned men of the society, It is worth noting that none of the weather enters the country through the stretch of the Atlantic coast north of Cape Hatteras, the section Into which pours the vast bulk of material Imports, and in which occurs a majority of the main disasters on American shores. Alaska Storm Center. There is some consolation to enthusiasts for the Made in America movement, the society says, in the fact that the great majority of disturbances that enter the states originate in Alaska, or in the great warm cauldron of the North Pacific, between the Aleutian islands and Hawaii, which is almost a United States sea. . So the weather is not subject to regulation. There Is no way of suppressing high and low disturbances. Atmospheric pressure is boss of its own whims.

Swindling travelConstantinople. ers in connection with passport vises has become one of the favorite means of livelihood of minor Officials in the Orient and Balkan countries. Mrs. J. H. K. Polly, wife of an American business man living in London, recently was a victim of this fraud while traveling on the Orient express, running from here to Paris. When the train was passing from Bulgaria into Serbia an official in uniform representing himself as a Serb Inspector, demanded to see her passports, Informed her that the vise obtained at the Serb legation In Constantinople was Invalid and ordered her to leave the train. After protestations, he consented to accept $35 to let her continue her journey. She had already paid $30 for vises of her passport Before leaving Constantinople many travelers are obliged to give large sums to get vises which later may be declared invalid in this manner. Since refugees from Russia are not wanted in other countries, where they may become public charges, few pass Another form of swindle results from the general European laws against taking large sums of silver, gold or paper money of a given country into another. To prevent such traffic governments place officials at frontiers, who demand of each traveler the sum of foreign cash oh his person. If he declares anything above the equivalent of $70, or some such modest sum, it is taken and a receipt given which he may cash in money of the country on leaving it Sometimes the inspector merely pockets the money, or will take a bribe to let the traveler proceed with all his cash. of experience have Americans adopted the plan of carrying only checks or drafts and thus avoid this annoyance. The oldest form of travel swindle takes the form of trains stopping due to lack of coal. Then the train crew plays cards until the passengers take up a collection with which to buy coal. This swindle has been improved upon. An official takes up tickets and then a second official, who denounces the first oDe as a fraud, makes the passengers pay a second time. even today in the wilds of Bolivia and skull fractures are common.

To surgeons the practice Is known as trephining. It consists of removing a disk or button of bone from the skull with a saw called a trephine. Complex fracture of the skull with depression of the bony plates must have been common occurrences during the ancient tribal wars when clubs headed with stone and copper along with slings, the bola and the lliul were offensive weapons, said the reports of the museums investigators. A natural procedure, they opined, with victims who survived skull fractures must have been attempts to remove the splinters of bone that pricked the brain, or to cut out fragments pressing upon It Warlike clans fight intermittently . when you get in with the moss and the leaves you dont look unlike the wooded ground Itself.

He also had before him recommendations made by Mr. Simmons and Mr, Sutton to meet the emergency and the confidential reports giving details of the more recent robberies. It is the intention of the department to arm all employees who may have charge of valuable postal shipments, either on trains or in the These employees will also be directed to shoot when they find themselves confronted by thieves. There have been reports of late which would seem , to indicate ( that some of the mail robberies have been committed by men who were formerly In the employ of the Postoffice department 'and who know the ropes.
