Gallup, N.

For the sand paintings have been transferred by artists to the walls of the Hotel E! NavaJo, recently dedi- cated here.

The legend reads that when *'the Holy Ones" gave the ceremonies to man, the priests were enjoined to memorize them and destroy the orig- Inals.

It is also true that In the very process of displacing wood from Its for- mer use for construction purposes the substitutes have Involved new or en- larged uses of wood incidental to their employment. "Furthermore, as wood Is being re- placed by other materials In one field, new uses of wood constantly arise iu other fields. The extensive use of pulp wood not only for paper products of various kinds, but also for fiber con- tainers, wallboard and similar forms of material, and recently even for mak- ing artificial boards. Is one example. The chemical utilization of wood for the production of various hy-products is still in its infancy; the next few years may see the use of wood for the production of alcohol on a large scale to take the place of gasoline.

In s previous ceremony the evil spirits had been throw out and the ritual contained no words of any evil or unlucky thing or spirit. Instead all that is good and beautiful was invited to take possession of the dwelling and its occupants and leave no room for evil spirits to return. The initial chant. sung during the procession of the medicine men, was an Invocation to the "Unnamed God." He was peti- tioued to bless not only the house but all its occupants and all that pet'. talned to It as far as the mountains on the four aides of IL The paintings were blessed with a special ceremony, the processlou goIng from picture to picture, mopping for the leaders to sprinkle each picture with the sacred corn pollen. After these particular blessings were invoked a number of other chants were sung and the medicine men sprinkled the meal from the sand pic- tures over the bulMlng and the spec- tators and to "the four corners of the earth." The remainder of the sand was placed In buckskin bags and couriers rode forth to places remote from the gatherings of men. where they could hear "The Echo" and there buried the bags. BRITISH SCIENTIST SEES RADIO CONTROL OF WORLD Tells of Directing Transportation by Use of Wireless, London.--Under the heading. "Com- Ing of the Wireless Age," a British scientist cntrkhutes a striking article to a London newspaper, in which he predicts that wireless will be used in the near future for directing ships at sea. train and trolley services, traffic control on the road, fleets of battle- ships and aircraft. "It will be passible," he says, "to direct the path of everything moving on the surface of the earth, not even excepting human beings, by means of Wtreie." The IDItial step In harnmming this rpotent and lltUe-known force was the establishment some weeks ago of s wireless lighthouse on Inchkelt island. In the Firth of Forth. By mealie of this "llghthote'' ships can be dlrected through the dangerous channels of the Firth by wLqees, so there is no possibility of their rumahag ashore or being wrecked even on the darkest night or in the densest fogs. StePs are being taken In conjunc- tion with the British. board of trade and the meteorological oflce, to Inte nationalize wireless direction of sldpa AT DOOR OF INSTITUTION Advice for G. O. P.

Rio de Janeiro.---One of the moat curious institutions In this city Is the .asa dos postos," a foundling asylum that receives Its small inmates through a sort of revolving door which is so built In a wall that the person operating It from the outside cannot see inside the buildIng nor be seen by persons within. The purpose of this mysterious door is to enable unfortunate mothers to glace their offspring In safe keeping without revealing their Identity or whatever secrets may have been con. nected with their existence. Most of the foundlings, the asym officials say, are put within the re- volving door at night when there ls lil31e or no traffic on the street out- side. With the turning of the door a bell rings, which nnnouneea to the at- tendants that a new guest has arrived. If a note giving the child's name or other information is pinned to Its clothe& it is baptized with that name, hut once a baby Is placed with the door by the despairing mother, it is never returned, no matter what change In fortune may come to the mother or what claims she may advance to port her repentance. The Inmates of the "Case doe I. posies" are raised like orphans and prepared for life with the best care within the ability of the gentle nuns who mansge the institution. Many of the children are adopted by childless couples.

At the present moment there Is lying In the port of London a ship that has been specially fitted with powerful wireless receiving sets to give demonstrations of this new method of navigation in all the prin- tidal ports of the world. Setting out from London, this mis- sionary ship will sell for China. via the Mediterranean, Indian ocean and the Straits. and thence on to North and South America, and back across the Atlantic to Europe and South Africa, giving demonstrations at every big port en route The most ambitious effort, however, will be a erosa-AtlanUc airplane flight which Is to be made late l the sum- mer. The machine will carry both pilot and observer, but their attentions will be confined to the actual flying side. Setting out fl'om Newfoundland few the first e00 mUss of its flight the air- plane will be directed by the Glaca bay wirele station. Then it will be picked up and navigated by s w/reiese "lightship.  cruising In mid-ocean, to a point where control will be trans- mitted to anger, the big operating sta- tion In this country. The whole 2,000 miles of flight will be directed by wireless. Blaze in Negro Care Beat, "Rusty' Firemen For 18 months and10 days the modern paid fire department at reer, S.
