PROVES PLATE GLASS FADES

Window From Fashionable Haberdash Haberdasher's
er's Haberdasher's Store, Installed in Fashionable
Residence, Still Carried Ad.
An amusing incident is related in the
Scientific American to prove that plate
glass fades under exposure to sunlight.
The glass originally is slightly green,
and after some years of use becomes
pure white. The incident is briefly as
follows :

In making some changes In the front
of a haberdasher's store, a five-foot
piece of plate glass was removed and
takon away by the glazier. In course
of time this sheet was installed in the
front window of a new residence. The
family had scarcely moved in when
they began to receive telephone mes messages,
sages, messages, suggesting that the neighbor neighborhood
hood neighborhood was scarcely appropriate for a
shirt factory. They were mystified
until they discovered that when the
sunlight struck their window at a cer certain
tain certain angle the words, "John Doe
Shirts Made to Order," shone out upon
the glass.
The explanation was that when the
glass formed the haberdasher's window
It had borne these words in white en enamelled
amelled enamelled letters, and the letters had
protected the underlying glass from
the rays of the sun, consequently It
had not faded as the rest of the glass
had done.

Under no circumstance does man
show to less advantage than when
a volcano sends forth its torrents. As
a figure of speech, man may consider
himself to be a iuny creature, but his
working opinion of himself Is by no
means so small. In Java the earth
groaned, aud 13.000 people were wiped
out of existence like so many ants.
Perhaps only 10.000 were killed; per perhaps
haps perhaps It was 20,000. No one will ever
know ; no one will ever be concerned
In the matter beyond the desire to ar arrive
rive arrive at a reasonable guess as to the
loss of life. It will always be a vague
question, to be discussed in round
numbers. The Javanese who perished
were indeed puny creatures, whose
memory will be nothing more than a
mathematical approximation.
As far back as man has a history
there are details of volcanic eruption
to testify to the haphazard, unwork unworkmanlike
manlike unworkmanlike fashion in which this world
of ours was niade. Pompeii and Iler Iler-culaneum

have any knowledge of the volcanic
catastrophes that have suddenly over overwhelmed

many. Germany. Tricks of the game of war are
coming to light from time to time as
each side tells its story. One of the
most successful of them was practiced
by American forces in the Meuse-Ar-gonne
battle last fall, when the last
great allied offensive was at its
height, from Switzerland to the sea.
An imaginary army, conceived by a
handful of American junior officers,
was "thrown into the field" overnight,
and for days five crack German divi divisions
sions divisions just east of Verdun, in the
Etain region,, were kept on their toesv
momentarily expecting an attack
which never came.
At a dinner table in a Coblenz cafe
overlooking the Rhine an American in intelligence
telligence intelligence officer recently told the
story of the creation of the mythical
"X army," as it was called. It ap appears
pears appears that the Germans were expect expecting
ing expecting an attack in the Etain sector at
any time, and the Americans knew it;
but at that stage of the game the First
American army was devoting its ener
gies to driving the enemy out of the
Argonne forest and the hill country on
either side. So the mythical army was
created, in preference to a real diver
sion, requiring many men, to convince
the German commander that it would
not be wise to weaken the Etain front
for the benefit of the Meuse-Argonne
front.
Commanded by Captain.
Five fresh divisions had been placed
by the Germans on the Etain line.
These constituted their last and finest
reservoir of available divisions. The
Americans realized that the minute
the Germans decided that this was not
a danger point any or all of the five
divisions could be withdrawn, re replaced
placed replaced by exhausted and fragmentary
divisions coming from the battle
fronts, and that the appearance of the
fresh troops in the line west of the
Meuse would have a tremendous effect
on the American offensive.
' The X army" was assigned to a
front from Bezonvaux to Fresnes.
From the morning of October 22 until
just before the armistice this army
"functioned." Capt. Charles H.Matz
of Hubbard Woods, 111., was command commander
er commander in, chief; Capt. William H. Dear Dear-den
den Dear-den of Springfield, Mass., and Wash
ington, 1J. U., was cnier or stan ; lieui.
John H. Graham of Lexington, Va.,
was chief of "troop movements ;" Capt.
O. W. Neldert was in charge .of G-l,
or administration, and Lieut. H. T.
Griswold of Old Lynn, Conn., was
chief of artillery. The Rtaff the "x
army" were all members of the in intelligence
telligence intelligence section of the First army,
and, of course, before beginning oper operations,
ations, operations, had obtained the consent of
their chief, Col. Willey Howell.
The wireless and the telephone were
freely used to convince the Germans
that the Americans were prepared for
an attack in the Etain sector. To
make sure that the Germans would
'e able to "break into" the code used,
the Americans furnished them with a
satisfactory key.
Functioned Until End.
One wireless station of the "X
army" was established in a clump of
woods near Verdun and was called
"headquarters of the X army." This
station functioned until the end of the
game, all "orders" for the army going
out from this place by wireless. Soon
after the station began working the
Germans located its whereabouts and
frequently shelled the woods and vi vicinity,

and represented Itself at a different

fledged full-fledged operation. In order to inform
the enemy of the geographical limits
of the sector of the "X army," many
messages were directed to imaginary
officers at existing towns on the Etain
front.

Meanwhile the roving wireless sta station

was peculiarly designed to add to the
enemy's suspicion of the approaching

sheet, "plan directeur map." This
could only be interpreted by the Ger Germans,
mans, Germans, the Americans agreed, as prepa
ration for a coming drive on the Briey
iron center.
In addition to the wireless the "X
army" also had in operation, on the
front between Rezonaux and Fresnes,
a telephone squad a careless squad

which set up telephone stations here
and there and sent meages and
talked shop and gossiped all night
about the arrival of some old friends
from America with such and such an
outfit.
The "X" army telephone squad took
no chances that the Germans might
not hear the conversations the Amer Americans
icans Americans desired them to record. They
deliberately grounded their wires, so
the enemy could "listen in" and
crawled out into No Man's Land In
the darkness and hooked one of the
American wires on a German barbed
wire in front of an abandoned trench
system. In the front line of modern
warfare the telephone is a most dan dangerous
gerous dangerous instrument, for both sides de devised
vised devised apparatus which within certain
limits could pick up conversations
over enemy lines with which it was
not even connected. So the Ameri
cans felt certain that all their conver conversations
sations conversations were heard by the Germans.
Get Results at Once.
Two days after the "X army" began
Its operations the results began to be
noticeable, the nervousness on the
part of the Germans being exhibited in
many ways, the enemy first sending
over a large number of airplanes to
make reconnolssances. The Germans
also began a series of trench raids tr
obtain prisoners for the purpose of
Identifying units of the forces oppo opposite
site opposite them. German prisoners captured
by the French- told of wild alarms in
the night on the part of the German
forces, hurried re-enforcement of the
main line of resistance, and various
other movements which indicated that
the enemy was exerting extreme
' watchfulness on account of the activ
ity of the "army" operated by a hand handful

Mark Twain's Imagination.
Mark Twain had such a vivid im

agination, such a brain for embroid

to tell a straight story just as it hap happened
pened happened he could make up one that

was so much better. We all know
that Albert Blgelow Paine, working on
the Mark Twain "Life" found it

necessary to discard much of the au

tobiographic material that Mark

Twain had written. Investigation,

talks with men still living who knew
the facts, simply proved that the tales

were not so. And Mark Twain was

no liar. He had a glorious, an almost
superhuman, imagination. As he ap approached
proached approached threescore and ten he said.

younger I -could remember anything. I

am getting old, and soon I shall re- j

Should Wifcy Tell AH?

did an argument convince anybody j

of anything of importance? Let's
Just reflect that if a woman fails to
tell her husband everything he Is likely
to miss a lot of news that never gets
into the newspapers. And if men
should fall to tell their wives pretty
much everything they dare tell, the
wives would miss a lot of gossip-material.
And if both adopt a policy of
