It wasn't the splash made by a fish ; it was a splash made by some one much bigger than a~y fish. Presently they made out a sliver line moving toward them from the Black Shadows.

THE Washington monument was long a subject of dDcusslon :n "Land out of congress after the death of the Father of His Country la 1799 until Its capstone was set in place December 6, 1884, a total of 85 years, says a National Geographic society bulletin. On December 23, 1799. ffohn Mar- shall, famous fellow-Virginian of George Washington, Introdvced a res- olution In the United States house of representatives providing that "a mar- ble monument be erected by the Unit- ed States in the city of Washington and that the family of General Wash- Ington be requested to permit his body to be deposited under It." Martha Washington acceded to the provisions of the resolution, but nothing was done. In 1816 and 1819 the memorial was discussed In the halls of congress and again In 1824 and 1825. And again nothing was done to carry out the prn- visions of the resolution. Displeased with the failure of con- gress to erect a memo~'lal, influential citizens of Washington organized In 1833 to promote the project. That body became the Washington National Monument society, with Chief Justice John Marshall as Its president. The society, which financed construction of the shaft until It rose 154 feet. Invited American artists to submit designs for s $1,000,000 edifice. Robert Mills won the competition, but his design was not accepted. It called for a circular co- lonnaded building from the center of which would rise a 500-foot obelisk. In 1848 congress passed a resolution authorizing the Washington National Monument society to erect a monu- ment and authorized the President of the United States and official of the society to choose "a suitable site. L'Enfant, In his plan of Washington, had provided for an equestrian statue of Washington, but the spot then wa a marsh. Thus the present site. only a few hundred feet away, was chosen. On Independence day, 1848, amid colorful ceremonies, the cornerstone, The Wahington National Monument in the Capital City. filled with historical documents, was laid. Slowly for six years the obelisk rose skyward. Then dissension In the ociety and lack of funds caused con- struction to cease. President Grant, In 1876. lgned a bill which provided that the govern- meat take over and complete the erec- tion of the shaft. Engineers dlscov- ered, after careful examination, that the foundations were not sufficient ~or o lofty an obelisk, the world's fallst, so they began what was called at that time "one of the outstanding engineer- ing feats of the warld"~rebutlding the monument's fouadaton without dam- age to the structure. Then, stone by stone, the shaft rose until ~he pyra- midal cal~stone was placed on Decem- ber 6, 1884. The memorial was opened to the public October 9, 1888. Lining its in- ner walls were place~l tones presented by states, cities, fraternities, fire com- panies, lodges and other organization from all part of the country. Stones from many fqreign nations also have places in Its walls. Tile monument cost lightly more than $1,000,0t~0. It is 555 feet 5~ inches high and stands on a base 55 feet square. The lower walls are of granite faced on the outside with mar- ble. They are 15 feet thick up to about 500 feet; the upper walls, of marble only, are 18 Inches thick. It is estimated that about 23,000 stones were used in the simft's construction~ There are eight windows at the 504: foot level from which thousands of v1- itors annually view the Capital city and nearby Virginia and Maryland.

A new chart showing the ages at which men and women should marry if they are to have the great- est chance of happiness has been prepared by Dr. Hornell Hart, pro- fessor of seals3 ethis at the Hart- ford Theological seminary. Accord- Ing to this chart the ages at which the chance of marital happiness is mathematically greatest are thirty- three for the man and twenty-seven for the bride. However. the chart shows a range of greatest chance of married happi- ness corresponding tr groom's ages between twenty-nine rnd thirty-seven and the bride's ages between twenty- three and thirty-one. ~ Pathfinder Magazine. ~[ILLION$ hue fo~d th~ do ~m~Y'~edto drench their stomachs with strong, caugic alkali.
