That is not a loyal thing to do, of course, and few of us realize
that we are helping the enemy when we waste money. Pretty hard
to define what waste is. One man's waste may be another man's
. economy. In a general way, waste in war time may be defined as the
buying of anything not essential to health and t efficiency. Every
dollar one spends for unnecessary things commands goods and ser services,
vices, services, that is, labor and materials, needed by the United States Gov Government

Malaysians Believe Mountains Were
Placed to Shut Out Strange
Race of YajuJ.
In the dak bungalow at Kwala Kubu
(In Malayasia) the Chlnaroy chowki chowki-dur
dur chowki-dur queue in pocket, shod In shoes of
silent felt, served my breakfast. I was
at last on the threshold of a strange
expedition in a land to which no letter
ever came correctly addressed, so un unknown
known unknown was It to the outside world. At
this moment the strangest thing In
fright was my breakfast. It consisted
chiefly of tins of tiny Mongolian finches
humming birds In size, squabs In
taste canned a dozen in a tin.
As I devoured the pitiful little birds,
bones and all. I looked ud at the
great Malay mountain range, the back backbone
bone backbone of the finger peninsula which
stretches southward from Slam to
within sight of the bund of Singapore
Itself. Mountains, so the Malays say,
are the wall of the world, shutting out
great winds and beasts of prey. And
they believe that a strange race the
Yajuj are forever striving to bore
through, and when they succeed, then
will come the end of all things.
The great limestone caves scattered
throughout the mountains are places
where the Yajuj have attempted and
failed. There is nothing Impossible or
unbelievable in all this, when one
comes to know Malay momntains In
all their weirdness. William Beebe,In

- Earthquake Statistic.
It has been calculated that there oc occur
cur occur about 30,000 earthquakes within a
year, or 8,760 hours, hence, that there
are on the average three and one-half
earthquakes in an hour.' Fortunately,
not all earthquakes are of a violent na
ture, like that of A. D. 526, that killed
from 120,000 to 200,000 persons In the
region of the Mediterranean, or that
of 1693, to which 60,000 persons fell
victims In Sicily, or of Lisbon In 1755,
and those that devastated Chile, Peru
and Japan. Of great ; frequency are
the minor earthquakes. In fact, oui
so-called firm earth can be said to be
in a state of perpetual agitation. Out
senses do not perceive the slight dis disturbances,
turbances, disturbances, but the seismograph, a very
delicate and Ingenious apparatus de devised
vised devised to keep track of them, furnishes
all the information denied to us by our
natural insensibility. They often fur fur-"nish
"nish fur-"nish us too much of it in the excess
of their zeal, recording sometimes aa
seismic phenomena vibrations that
later proved to have been due to the
ringing of church bells.
