convenlent-slse sections; each covering a "quadrangle" of ground. The edges Of each map join on WIUJ exactness to those of adjoining quadrangles. And Uncle Sam sells these Incomparable quadrangles at 10 cents each retail and 6 cents wholesale! This topographic map, which at first glance of the uninitiated appears to be a map obscured by a mass of Irregular reddish-brown lines, Is of tremendous value to the country. For this Is an age of construction—tart gatlon, drainage, waterpower, roads, etc., etc. And the topographic maps do away with the necessity of special surveys. The farmer, for example, can tell whether a drainage ditch Is feasible; So that the engineering council, representing practically all of the engineers of the country, ted a popular campaign for the completion of the survey, with the result that the temple act became law. Though this topographic survey has' been In progress since 1879, congressional appropriations have been woefully .Inadequate. In 1921, for example, only 425 engineers and their assistants were making maps; they covered 12,811 square miles of territory. Only about $16,000,000 have been spent in 46 years. Under the Temple act congress Is expected to appropriate Mm $1,000,000 to $2,000,000 a year. Moreover there Is a provision by which states and municipalities may co-operate to speed up the work; such outside contributions this year total about $400,000. About $60,000,000 wlU be needed td complete the survey. Director • Smith '•ad Colonel' Blrdseye have a big Job ahead of them. The gross areaof continental United States is 8,026,780 square miles; Alaska contains 888,400 square miles. About 46 per cent has been mapped— see map reproduced by courtesy of the Scientific "American Magaslne—of which about 16 per cent will have to be remapped because of the use of too small a scale. The standard maps are on the scale of one mile to one Inch— one Inch on paper to 62£00 Inches of country. The completed map, If all the quadrangles were put. In' place, would cover about'one acre. Uncle Sam must have had a sort of "prophetic hunch** when he picked out Colonel Blrdseye. Why? Because In the past forty-six yean the topographic engineers have walked about 10,000,000 .miles—which would be more than* 400 tiroes'around thr earth. But the topographic engineer of the future will likely do much of his mapping by. photography from airplane!

This action on the part of the bnslneas men of Fort Wayne arooaat public interest •fain In a man whom Secretary Sjwr-' man once described aa "one of the most atrlMng flgorea this republic baa ever produced.1* In 18st a representative: from Ohio, oa the.floor of the noose of repre. sentatlves, announced the death of "an old man who baa done more for the West than any yOtner man of his era." He alluded1 to John Chapman, popnlarly and affectionately known as Joljnny Appleseed, who planted, orchards and nnnerles In tiw wilderness of Ohio and Indiana In advance of dvUlsatlon. _ Meager knowledge of Johnny Applewed rests chiefly on tradition and legend. He was born in Springfield, Mam, In 1778, the year the embattled farmers stood by the rode bridge and "fired the shot heard round the world." Johnny's half-sister, who went West long after he did, said that when be was a boy be was fond of nature; he loved the' flowers and the birds and the animals, and oh summer nights he would lie on his back for hours gating up Into the starry heavens. Disappointed In Love.

Why John Chapman left his native state to wander in the Western wilderness Is one of the mysteries of his life. It has been a fertile but futile subject of speculation for generations among poets, novelists and historians. A tradition says It was disappointed love which drove him from bis neighbors and friends and relatives in the Old Bay state; and this belief has the very faint support of the fact that Chapman never married. He appeared as a wanderer' In the valley of the Potomac In 1700. The following summer he was In western Pennsylvania. One day In the fall of 1800 a woman living on the banks of the Ohio river near Stenbenville taw a crasy-looklng craft floating down the stream. It consisted of two canoes laahed together, heavily -loaded with bags and piloted by a barefooted, oddly dressed man wearing a broadbrimmed hat It was John Chapman wjth a cargo of apple seeds which he had gathered from the. cider presses of Pennsylvania. He told the woman he was on his way Into-the wilderness to plant nurseries in advance of the pioneers. "My mission In life," he told Her, "Is to have apple trees ready for the settlers when they come." -> Physically Johnny Appleseed was a man of medium height and spare build. The generosity and sincerity of the blameless soul within were reflected In his soft'blue eyes. Had It not been for Ala clownish garments he would have been a handsome man; but it was his conviction that man should not clothe himself for show but only to cover hta nakedness. He was not an Ignorant or illiterate man; his conversation bore the marks of the good training and education he had received - in his youth. He was of a meditative and deeply .religious turn of mind* professing himself a disciple of Emmanuel Swedenborg, whose teachings he had somewhat, perhaps unconsciously, modified to suit his own convictions. His two mission's In life were to make converts to his religion and to plant apple trees In the wilderness. 'First Nursery In Ohio. His first nursery, so far as known, was In/ a narrow valley along the Ohio, opposite what Is now Wellsburg. W. Va. Later he penetrated the Interior of Ohio, and,for yean his chief . field of operations was along the Musklngum and Its tributaries. He went westward as far as eastern Indiana as civilisation moved In that direction. It Is estimated that this eccentric man set out more than one hundred nurseries In the forest Many of the finest orchards hi the early days of Ohio and Indiana were composed of trees bought from Johnny Appleseed,

Moscow.—The Bussian scientist M. Bachmetjew, has determined that the temperature of Insects Increases hi direct proportion to their activity. Butterflies, he claims, furnished much valuable enlightenment on the problem of the winter's sleep of the Insect spades. He found that when butterflies were placed In a colder atmospheric medium, their temperature mmediately began to drop and continued on the downward scale until a certain point was. reached, whereupon the temperature would suddenly shoot up again ;neariy to normal and then register slighter drops: i-. But this experiment waa only possible once. When tried a second time, the butterfly Invariably died. > to the
