TRAVEL AND DESCRIPTION GARDEN COLOR. By Mrs. C. W. Earle and Others. Illustrated by Margaret Warfield. E. P. Dutton & Co., New York. $6. This beautiful book was first published some fifteen years ago and thoroughly deserves republication. The four chapters not only furnish information for lovers of carefully planned gardens but show affectionate interest and love for the flower world. The color sketches by Margaret Warfield are charming; especially is this true of those which set forth the brilliant and rich colors of the autumn garden.
ALICE MORSE EARLE BOOKS (THE). Macmillan Company, New York. $2.50 each. We are glad to note the republication in uniform edition of the readable and curiously interesting volumes by Alice Morse Earle and to know that there is evidently a steady demand among readers for them. The list includes "Old Time Gardens," "Home Life in Colonial Days," "Child Life in Colonial Days," "Sun Dials and Roses of Yesterday," and "Curious Punishments of Bygone Days," and we believe that what is to many the most entertaining of the whole series, namely, "Stage Coach and Tavern Days," has been, or will be, included in the set. Mrs. Earle has remarkable zest and skill in collecting queer or romantic material about such subjects as those indicated by the titles. She is fortunate enough also to have her books adequately and pleasantly illustrated.

LIZA RUHAMAH SCIDMORE and CHARLES HODGES undertake the task of discussing the situation in Tsingtau. Miss Scidmore is a much-traveled lady, with an eye that sees keenly and a pen that writes vividly. She is the foreign secretary of the National Geographic Society and the author of several books. Mr. Hodges was out in the Far East during the latter part of the Great War, making an investigation of the political and business conditions underlying world politics. In the course of this work he examined the circumstances surrounding the Japanese occupation of Shantung. discussing the situation with Chinese, foreign, and Japanese residents along the railway and in the leasehold of Tsingtau. Part of this work was of a semi-official character for the United States Government.

THE MAGIC OF MODERN BUSINESS
TE live in the age of the machine. Practically every article that the hand touches or the eye rests upon is the product of a machine. Our food, our clothing, and the materials from which our homes are built are all put into consumable form by machinery. And now we are employing machines to run our business offices for us-human fingers and brains are being replaced by metal keys and whirling wheels and levers.
Picture the counting-room of Charles Dickens's day, with its ancient grayhaired bookkeeper, perched on a high stool, laboriously making entries in a huge dog-eared ledger with a quill pen. Picture him again adding up long columns of figures over and over to arrive finally at the correct result. Once again, picture the junior apprentice busily transcribing copies of the office correspondence into an antiquated letterpress which gradually grew fat and unwieldy with old age. The efficient office manager of to-day smiles at these visions of a bygone business age and asks how anything was ever accomplished under such conditions. Modern business demands speed and accuracy. The development of business machines has not only met, but has anticipated, these demands and has completely revolutionized accounting and office management.
The recent Business Show held in New York City offered a most interesting demonstration of these new methods. The casual visitor at this show was visibly impressed with the magic of modern business and the speed and accuracy with which the old laborious tasks are now performed. The invention of the typewriter was acclaimed as a tremendous step forward in the handling of correspondence and business records. But we now have machines that are a whole bookkeeping staff in themselves. The latest accounting machines now manufactured by the leading typewriter companies actually perform all kinds of bookkeeping operations. They make the necessary entries and by the necessary addition and subtraction which they perform the books can be kept in proper balance at all times with the least possibility of error. The latest calculating machines not only add and subtract, but can also be used for the purpose of multiplication and division with a little practice. Thus the fallibility of the human brain in calculation is supplanted by the infallibility of the machine.
The portable style of typewriter has become very popular because of the convenience with which it can be carried from place to place. It is widely used by writers and newspaper men as well as business men who travel and who can thus carry their typewriter with them.
In offices where letters are mailed in large quantity speed in addressing is desirable. To meet this requirement an automatic feeder has been devised which

fast as the actual addresses can be written. When the letters are ready for mailing, we have the latest folding and mailing machines ready to do their part of the job. The folding machine, as the name indicates, folds the letters or circulars to the proper size to fit the envelopes at a very rapid rate. They are then fed into the mailing machine, which seals the envelopes and affixes the stamps.
Where a Government mailing permit is used, the proper permit is stamped on the envelope and the number of envelopes thus stamped is recorded on an automatic register. The register is then removed from the machine and taken to the post office after an allotted number of letters have been stamped, where the proper record for mailing is checked against the daily mailing statements.
In connection with the preparation of circulars of all kinds, we might mention the various duplicating and printing machines which print and fold circulars of all the usual sizes and are in effect small printing plants in themselves. The latest machines of this type can even handle color printing with very effective results. The use of addressing machines with properly kept stencils expedites the addressing operation and is the best method of keeping a thoroughly up-to-date mailing list.

Time recorders are used for making proper time studies in manufacturing operations. The starting time, stopping time, and actual elapsed time of an operation is thus checked for detailed study. The use of the ordinary time clock is familiar to every one. Time records are employed for many purposes, particularly in checking clerical and factory time work. Recording door locks are made which show the day, hour, and minute a door is opened or locked. Time machines can control all factory costs in the process of manufacturing.

BY THE WAY
'N the "Stag Cook Book," which is described as "a man's cook book for men," several well-known personages tell how to cook their favorite dishes. President Harding, it seems, likes waffles better than almost anything else; Secretary Hughes says, "My favorite dish is corn bread and honey," and gives a recipe for the first-named delicacy; Charlie Chaplin likes steak and kidney pie and knows how it should be made; Dr. Frank Crane tells how to cook round steak so it will be as tender as fried chicken; Stewart Edward White confesses that a camp dish called "Mulligan" is exactly to his taste; Chick Evans likes tomato soup best if you cook it his way; Charles W. Eliot has a "favorite menu" consisting of clam soup, corned beef hash, and baked Indian pudding; Basil King likes lobster à la king (or King), but adds this curiously archaic note: "Unless brandy or sherry can be added it is useless to attempt this dish."
William J. Bryan contributes to the above list of recipes one for French-fried onions, saying that he has introduced the dish on dining cars and into many private homes; Will Irwin likes ham and eggs, and in his recipe says, "Cook the ham until it is cooked enough;" W. T. Benda tells of a Polish soup called "Barshck with Ushka;" Walter Prichard Eaton won't tell about his favorite dish because it is a family secret, but gives a recipe for mince pie; Montague Glass prefers bouillabaisse to anything else in the eating line, and takes two pages to tell how it should be made; Charles P. Steinmetz admits that he has never before been consulted about gastronomical matters, but says he likes meat loaf best and gives careful directions for making it; Judge Lindsey likes bran muffins and Otis Skinner "Artichokes, Mister Antonio" style, which he says enables you to "understand why an artichoke need not taste as flat as boiled hay.”
Here is a variation on an old theme, as worked up by the "Annapolis Log:" Peter Piper played a pot of poker, A pretty pot of poker Peter Piper picked.
But a piker with a poker picked on Peter Piper,
And pocketed the poker-pot that Peter Piper picked!
The Sanford, Florida, "Herald" is credited with an announcement that must have been cheerful reading to the local undertaker at least. It is headed, "Looking Forward to a Pleasant Time Being Had by All:" " & Son have
a new hearse and as far as hearses go it is a beauty, being finished in the very latest design of burnished silver called 'molten silver.' . . . & Son are well equipped to take care of all the funerals OF BRAINS in this section of the country having two fine funeral cars with the prospects of the old car being turned into an ambulance. Like everything else on wheels
equipment have given way to the new motorized funeral cars and if one must ride in this car it will certainly be satisfactory."
"Two years ago," a writer in the "National Geographic Magazine" says, "the little seaport of La Paz, in Lower California, had more dollars per wagon-load of population, perhaps, than any other town in the western part of the world." La Paz, it seems, is one of the most important pearling ports in the world, and the price of pearls had climbed high. "In the crown jewels of the Emperor of the dissolved Austria-Hungary," the writer goes on, "there was-and no doubt the pearl specialists know where it is to-day-a great black pearl. That gem was found in the careless hands of an Indian baby playing on the beach at La Paz."
Among the few things that were left undestroyed in or near Smyrna after the entry of the Turks were the remains of the great aqueduct of Alexander, so called. These majestic ruins really date from the Roman occupation, and the massive piers and great arches (a triple arcade, like those of the Pont du Gard in France) are said to have the characteristics of the best work of the Imperial epoch, Great buttresses added to strengthen the arches are believed to be by the engineers of Marcus Aurelius.
Signs of improving industrial conditions are seen in the numerous labor agencies on the Bowery in New York City. One of these has a placard in its window calling for "Coal miners-Hungarians, Liths, Russ, Poles, Slavs, Spaniards." The spelling out of the firstnamed nationality instead of using the familiar abbreviation "Huns" is doubtless due to war-time memories. "Liths" of course stands for Lithuanians.
Salvage remuneration to the owners, officers, and crew of a rescuing vessel, amounting to $25,000 in all, as awarded by a Canadian Admiralty Court, was apportioned as follows: Owners, $17,000; captain, $1,500; first officer, $700; second officer, $550; chief engineer, $800; second engineer, $500; wireless operator, $500; divided among members of the crew, $3,500. The case got into the courts because the owners of the rescued vessel thought just one-half of these amounts was proper compensation for the service rendered.
In the new Senate, to convene next year, there will be two physicians-Dr. Copeland, of New York, and Dr. Ball, of Delaware. Senator Shipstead, of Minnesota, is a dentist by profession. Two college presidents are included in the Senate's personnel-Fess, of Ohio, and Ladd, of North Dakota. Senator Norbeck, of South Dakota, is described as a "well-digger." "In matters of grave public policy," the New York "Evening Post" remarks dryly, "he should have no difficulty in getting down to the bottom of things."
