The in- stitution is an adjunct of the gov- ernment, established by act of con- gress in 1846 to take advantage of terms of the will of James Smith- son, an Englishman, who left his en- tire estate to the United States to found an Institution bearing his name and intended for "the Increase and diffusion of knowledge among men." It is controlled by a board of re- gents who may accept gifts without action of congress, in furtherance of the purpose of the Institution. It has also acquired numerous of its collections. The board of regents consists of the Vice President of the United States, the chief Justice, three mem- bers of the senate, hree from the house and six private Individuals named by congress. The members, tinder the act accepting James Smithson's gift and creating the In- stitution, are the President of the United States, the Vice President, the chief Justice and the eablnet. Bell of the Lost Lutine The bell of the lost Lutlne--the ship that was once the pride of the Britisl navy, which went down off the island of Terscheling in the North sea on a night in October more than 100 years ago, with all hands save one, retrieved by Lloyd's, which attempted the salvaging oper- ation in 1857, hangs today at Lloyd's in Leadenhall street in London, and a clmlr and a table made from the rudder, which was brought up at the same time, stand in the room where tle directors meet. For years the bell has rnng to announce the arrival of a missing ship at some port, or the news that one more ship has been lost. Three strokes of the l.utine's bell are taken in nm. rine and legal circles to mean that uuderwriters mast settle, and money owing to the crews must be paid over to thetr heirs. Origin of Military Colors The origin of military coh)rs can be traced to the dim beginning of history, a fact which is confirmed by excavations In India bringing to ligilt evidence that there was a "'cult of the standard" over five thousand years ago. These primi- tive symbols were made of metal or wood. They are frequently men tioned In the Bible: "The children of Israel shall pitch every man by his own standard, with the ensigns of their fathers' house." It is not until Just prior to the Christian era that we find standards ffade of cloth, silk or damask. The stand ards of Julhts Caesar's army were made of metal, usually surmounted by at] eagle. in Many Languages The finest collection of printed scriptures In the world is contained in tbe library of the British and For elgn Bll)le society's headquarters in I l,ondon.

Century Plant Used in Manufacture of Liquor The century Idant Ilelongs to an extremely useful family, the Am- aryllidaceae, thebest known species of which is the Agave Americana, sometimes called the American aloe, recalls the New York Times. The sap of a certain variety, when fermented, yields a beverage resem- bling cider, the Mexican pulque. By distillation It yields two Intoxicat- Ing liquors widely used in Mexico-- mescal and tequila. The leaves are used for feeding cattle; the fibers of the leaves (called pits, sisal hemp or henequen) are formed Into thread, cord and ropes. The leaves, roasted, were formerly used for food by the Indians. In the warmer parts of Europe the American aloe Is cultivated as an ob- Ject of considerable utility, Plants are set In rows as hedges or fences, especially In Spain, Portugal and Italy. In some parts the leaves are employed for scouring pewter, kitch- en utensils, and floors. The accepted notion that the agave does not bloom until it Is one hundred years old Is erroneous. Its flowering entirely depends on the rapidity of Its growth, In hot coun- trles It will flower In a few years. but In colder climates, the growth being slower. It Is longer In arriv- Ing at maturity. The stem of-the century plant, which bears the blossoms, rises from the center of the leaves and when the plant Is In a vigorous state It frequently exceeds the height of 20 feet. Spider as Webmaker Is Marvel for Measurement Althougi the most symmetrical web ever made by a spider Is not really perfect, according to hunnm standards, scientists marvel at the accuracy with which angles and dis lances are "nleusured." The spider starts her geometrical web with perimeter lines eommcting objects around it space large enough for her purl)ose, according to an observer In the National Geograllidc Magazine. From these lines she suspends a few threads which con verge at the center of the future web. Now begins the process o[ Fresh Beef Heart per lb.. ,JI5 Extra ,., ; tv,.ec.a...
