The second ring encircling the first grows In the following year, and so on. This process has been kept up for more than 8,000 years In some of rile giant redwoods of CallforultL The rings are distInctly marked, because the growth is different In spring and summer from what it Is in the rest of the year. There Is a difference In the cell growths of the fall which makes a" dark color in the ring, so that each year's growth Is clearly written on the eroaion of the tree. The application of the study of an- nual tree rings to history and ar- cheology lies In the fact that ancient beams, rafters and furalture will all show the varying tree ring patterns of the trees from which they were cut If trees enough are found to trace the annual variations back several hun. dred or a few thousand years, a stand- ard of comparison would exist which would enable the expert to match an ancient beam or piece of furniture with the ring-pattern of its period. thus fixing the age almost exactly.

But while some were willing to agree to let the shade of Mr. Fry absorb all of the glory, this young woman went quietly about the libraries, gathering up data on the ride. She dug up musty negspapers and faded letters on which 1 the writing was hardly discernible. She t compacted dates and more dates, and[ then one day she startled the home folks by appearing before the ride committee and demanding that Mr. be hauled out of the saddle and his place be given to Sailor Rlchar0. son, who left the bounding main to ride away over the rolling pratrieL She proved-to the committee's satis- faction that Fry was the second rider, and that he left St. Joseph seven day after the first rider departed. Dangsrous Dash Atrmm PlalnL The Pony Express was the first means by which mall was carried over- land to the Pacific coast. In 1869 the Eastern outpost of railroads was SL Joseph. Mall destined to the Western territories had to be sent by sailing veels around Cape Horn. Ha'waver, the Pony l-pres cam- puny was given assurances by the gov- ernment that it might have the con- tract for carrying the mall If it could make faster time than the vessels took. The company then prepared for the Initial ride on which hung the fate of the contract The best riders of the West were secured, and hundreds of fast horses were purchased. On the appointed day, April 3, 1860, a horseman set out from San Francisco, carrying the mall i eastward. At the same time another t horseman was being ferried across the Missouri river, bound for Seneca, Ken., a distance of 20 miles. The result of the ride Is known. The trip was completed In ten days, and the company received the contract. Seneca was the first stop for a rider Item St. Joseph. He was relieved there, and waited for the rider from tile West, whom he in turn relieved. Six horses were used In riding the dim tance, and the riders were supposed to make the distance In eight hours. It was a hazardous undertaking, as the plains were at that time overrun by Indians, and many a rider was found on the trail his body pierced with a poisoned arrow. But when the ride is made this fall the horsemen will find conditions dif- ferent, and ff old William Richardson should wander back to this earth he would probably be surprised to Bee his replica hurrying along over a hard-sur- faced highway, while unfamiliar Jects, which people call motorcars, speed by the horseman at a terrific rate. k Hot Controversy at St. Joseph, Mo., Settled by Girl Who Finds Sailor FirsL St. Joseph. Mo.St. Joseph Is excit- ed. Groups gather on street corners, in pool halls and near-beer shops to talk about the situation. And the cause of It all Is a controversy over the Identity of the first rider to leave St. Joseph In the now famous Pony Express ride. The Pony Express Is experiencing a revival, and the historic ride of hardy horsemen is to be relived this fall, when riders will set out again from St. Joseph and San lanctsco over the old route. Towns and cities along the Way are preparing fqr the event, which will be celebrated in all the states through which the first riders passed. When the proposal to revive the ride was made, no one thought it would re- trait In such a ilrore* The moveme',t started in the Weal and since then committees have been at loggerheads aver the first rider. There seems to he no doubt about the man who left San Francisco with the first bag of mall but In St. Joseph opinions differ. While no homes ha'ca been divided In the strife, some very heated tilts have occurred. Of course, none of the first riders are row living, as the date of the Initial trip was April 8. 1860. Those "first  riders ho ire backed for honors are 3ohnnie John Burnett and one ilor named William Richardson. At the present I wetting Richardson seems to have the ontest tucked away, but at any mo- ent an antique letter or dacu:nent may be sprun on the committee and wlng the contest In another direction. Wrangle Over Horses Color. The argument does not stop with the name of the first rider. The color of :he horse he rode, the hour of the day nd the-part of the city from which he rider set off are all in question. Strangely, the interest [n such an old ffalr is not confined to the old folk. Usually in a case like this the younger and, of course, smarter set ar contest m sit back, casting supercilious sneers t the petty arguments of their grand- parents. But not this time. In fact, the strongest backer of Rich- srdson, and the one who placed him at the head of the race, Is a young worn- an.

A re- cent police census showed the city has 1,065,000 lnlmbltlmta, ns compared wth 740,000 In 192.0, Although still almost dead Industri- ally In comparison with Its war-time status, Petrograd In general Is begtu- alng to "come back." During the war days Petrograd had moee than 2,000,000 people. After the bolshevik revolution the capital was moved to Moscow and thousands of government employees and factory workmen were evacuated. The lean and hungry years of the revolution brought about a further de- crease In the population, many of the people going to the country districts where food was cheaper and more plentiful Two years ago Petrograd merited the predictions of foreign observers that It would be a.clty as dead aa PompeiL But the last year has brought a tremendous change. Fac- tories are being reopened, the port is GUNBOATS. CRUISERS. SUBS NAVY'S WANTS FOR 1924 Outline Building Program to Be Presented to Congress, Washington" D. C.Eight cruisers, four river gunboats, and three cruiser submarines will comprise the bulldlag program which the Navy departmeat will present to the budget bureau and congress the coming session. Since the four power naval treaty limits cruiser tonaage to 10,000 tons, the general hoard has been instructed to consider plans which will give the navy the most efficient vessel of the cruiser type wi hin, this limitation, Secretary l)enby said. It was expect- ed, however, the eight new ships would follow closely the design of the Detroit class, now in progress of delivery. The'four gunloats will be for the Chinese river patrol.. Recent inspe tlon at the vessels now engaged in in operation, and thousands of person are returning to the city. Many of them have come from Mos- cow, which is so overcrowded with its 2,500.000 people in a city built for 1,0(}0,000. that it is almost impossible to find a place to sleep. In Moscow one cannot get a spacious apartment for love or money; in Petrograd there are many of them. And so hundreds of Moscow business men, whose work keeps them in the capital, l!ave sent their families to Petrograd where they can live comfortably. While it does not seem probable that there is any immediate chance of the bolshevik government moving the capital back to Petrograd, never- theless some institutions which help to overcrowd Moscow are to be moved to Petrograd this summer. This will further Increase the population. Buslo hess conditions in Petrograd, however, do not seem as bright as they were last summer. IN the PUBLIC that patrm. Secretary Denby snid In- dicated that they must be replaced. "In view of the sttuatlon in China and the vast amount of trade at stake," the secretary said. "the department feels it is most imperative that small modern gunboats Immediately he au- thorized by congress." The three cruiser submarines to be asked for are also tn the hands of. the planning section of the general board, and no hint of the type which might he recommended has been made publlf. It Is considered certain" how- ever, that they will surpass in-ton- nags any submersible boat now in use by any power. Some surprise was evidenced In navy circles because of the relatively small number of cralsers decided on by SOS- retary Denby in view of his knom opinion that the fleet is markedly de- ficient in this class.

Mlhaly, a well-known stu- dent of high frequency electrical cur- rents, has no less than 62 Inventions on the market, including the speaking kinematograph, a new system of col- ored klnematogral, a plastical kine- matograph, and many automobile and wireless inventions. The telehor Is made of two sep- arate instruments, the receiver and the reproducer. The connection of the two Instruments may be eJected either through a wire, wire connecUon ,)r wireless, lery photograph, land- scape, figure, handwriting or any oh. Ject which is placed before the ob- Jective of the receiver Is seen under less than 1-10 of a second on the screen of the reproducer. The principle of the telehor Is the photo-machine of Professor Korm The latter, however, an ordinary photo proceeding.

Hay Hurled on Wire by Wind Starts Fire I.Avermore, Cal.--Mowed hay lying In a field was caught In a whirlwind and lifted onto a pow- er line, where It caught fire and rolled down hill, starting the first range fire in this dstrlet for the 1923 season. The blaze started in almost the same place at which the largest fire In 1922 occuD'ed, and was Just as freakish in origin. About ten acres were burned before the blaze was controlled. Only a little while ago Horace M. Towner, tormer congressman from Iowa. was appointed by the President to be the governor of Porto Rico, to succeed E. Moat Rally. Scarcely had he assumed his new" duties than he found himself confronted with an o- position as determined as that which had succeeded In having Rally ousted from the position. Governor Towner is charged lth Ignoring the Republican party, whlc Governor Relly favored in his appoint- ments, and with turning virtually all offices over to Unionists. the dominant party of the island, whose appeals to Washington brought the change In admlnistratlon.
