RESTORE HISTORIC SPOT
City of New Orleans Taking Steps to
Preserve and Beautify Bienville's
An effort Is being made In New Or
leans to restore the old historic spots
around the city. With the restoration
of the old Place d'Armes, the rehabili
tation of the Cabildo and the Pontalba
apartments which surround it, and the
preservation of all as an artistic cen
ter for the old French and Spanish
quarter, an effort is being made to re
store and preserve the landing place
of Bienville, where he first set foot on
the high land in 1720, at the place he
was destined to convert into NouvelleT
Orleans. This landing place, which
lies on the river directly facing the
Place d'Armes, which is now Jackson
square, is covered with the switch
tracks of the Southern Pacific and
public Belt railroads, and with a part
of the large steel warehouse belonging
to the board of commissioners.of the
port of New Orleans.
Supporters of the Louisiana State
museum have appealed to the mayor
and the various civic organizations to
have these sheds and railroad tracks
removed at once, inasmuch as the
land, clear from the Cabildo to the
river itself, was expropriated some
time ago to be put in historical and
artistic reserve. As all the water
front of New Orleans and the east
bank of the river belongs to the city
and state forever, the completion of
the artistic center is sure of accom
plishment. ACCEPTED MANDATE OF FAT
Young English Aoldier Proved Him

When Rudyard Kipling's "The Man
Who Would Be King" was published
it was regarded as an excursion into
the improbable, if not the impossible.
It was the Anglo-Saxon imagination
accepted by the colorful Hindustani
But the sober chronicles of the war
have outdone Kipling. Thorneycroft,
a twenty-two-yearol British trooper,
found himself stranded in Turkey
after Townshend's ill-fated offensive.
Nothing daunted, he accepted his pre
dicament as a mandatory of Fate. He
proceeded to rule over a territory Hn
taining 6(Aillages and 60,000 people,
and he ruled them until relieved by
the martial law brought by Allenby's
troops. The son of a hotel keeper of
Bristol, he proved at the test that he
was of imperial fiber.

Marshal offre a Catalonian.
Possibly with more reason than the
seven claimants to the birthplace of
Homer, Catalonia makes out a good
case for asserting that Marshal Joffre
belongs to her by right of birth. The
great estopper of the German first of

where the Catalonian race predom
inated in past ages and where today
are found many families which still
retain Catalonian customs and lan
guage. Leading business firms of
Catalonia, seeking to Establish a tangi
ble claim, have appointed a commit
tee which is to proceed to Paris and
present a sword to the great warrior,
unless he fulfill a promise made at
the peace conference that he will visit
Catalonia, in which case the presenta

of course, wquld be the occasion of a
Mexicans Hold Strange Beliefs.
Few countries are richer in strange
beliefs than. Mexico, writes Charles
Bernard Nordhoff in the Atlantic
Monthly. There the witches assume
the eyes of cats and flit through the
night on vampire's wings. A brisk
business is done in love potions'and
candle flames still point the way to
buried treasure. The Mexican inherits
his cruelty to domestic beasts from
both the Spaniard and the Indian, and
his superstitions may be traced to the
same double source.
Eccentricity is not understood in
Mexico. The native is a lover of for
mality, and one is judged largely by
external things. Each man dresses
according to his station, and it is un
thinkable that a well-to-do man should
wear a straw sombrero or carry a
serape the peons would be the first
to jeer at him.
A French critic who complained of
the hasty composition and~lack of fine
writing among his compatriots drew
from M. Pierre^ Louys, the author of
"La Femme et Ie Pantint" a pained
and precise denial of the charge. M.
Louys, who has not published anytsjog
in.several years, says that he has been
diligently occupied on a work which
he rewrites and corrects a hundred
times to each page. This and other
works which he has not yet considered
worthy .of publication have accumu
lated until he has on hand more than
200 pounds of manuscript/

Plymouth Rock Described
Plymouth rock is the most famous
rock in the new world. Historians
eager to make a sensation have
claimed that there is no reliable evi
dence that the pilgrims, either on their
voyage of exploration or after the
coming of the Mayflower from Pro
vincetown, stepped upon the rock from
their boats, thus touching here for the
first time upon the site where their
settlement was to grow.
Yet the evidence for the authentici
ty of the tradition is strong enough to
warrant our believing it^ When the
women and children came, it was not
known where the first foot touched
the ground. But when the pilgrim ex
plorers landed at Clark's island there
is not much doubt that they stepped
upon the historic rock. No actual con
temporary record of this was set
down in black and white, but in their
later years some of the explorers de
scribed to Elder Faunce the exact
particulars of that landing as they re
membered them. And he, when an old
man himself, sat by the rock and re
peated this story, identifying the rock
as the first Plymouth ground trodden
by their feet. There is other con
firmatory evidence so that it seems al
together probable that the tradition is
true. It cannot, indeed, be absolutely
proved. But it is sufficiently satis
factory to all except those few who
prefer to doubt everything.
Just before the revolution Plymouth
was growing so rapidly about the
waterfront that it seemed probable*
that before many years the rock would
be covered by a wharf. This roused
the patriotic sentiment of the town's
people ai|d it was decided to remove
the great boulder to a place where
commerce could not desecrate- it. But
in trying to raise it the rock was split
and the upper portion, being mare
highly regarded, was solemnly taken
to the town square, where it helped
to arouse fervor in the gatherings of
loyal Americans who were beginning
to fret over obnoxious laws imposed
by England. Here it remained for 60
years and then, on the fourth of July,
it was again removed, this time, to a
prominent place in front of Plymouth
hall. Here it stayed for 46 years
longer and it was then taken back to
its rightful position, securely fastened
to the lower portion, which had never
been removed, and later covered with
a granite canopy.
Felicia Hemans, in her English
home, knew about Plymouth rock
when she wrote her famous poem. "She
took it for granted that the rock had
many neighbors when she wrote the
familiar line, "On a stern and rock
bound t*oast. It is always hazardous
to write about scenes that one "has
never viewed and Mrs. Hemans drew
a good deal on her imagination when
she pictured Plymouth as "rock-
bound.'* The pilgrims would have had
to row a long distance to have found
another rock upon which "the break
ing waves dashed high."
It is sometimes believed that the
pilgrims named their town in honor of
the English city where they last saw
their native land. As a matter of fact
they did not name the place. Captain
John Smith had already done that,
and the pilgrims, finding the name,
Plymouth, on his map, retained it.

"It ought to be the very first .object
of our pursuits to have nothing to do
with European interests and politics."

wish well to the progress of liberty
of all nations and would forever give
it the weight of our countenance, yet

possible, wasting the energy of our

different from ours that we must avoid

THE UNIVERSAL CAR
5 Good Reasons
1. The war period, during which the production of
automobiles was curtailed, has caused a shortage
of cars which the 1919 output has failed to supply
2. During the entire season of 1919 Ford car purchas-
ers waited one to four months for their cars.
3. On November 1st, 1919, the Ford Motor Company
had 212,204 unfilled car orders on hand.
4. The present demand for Ford cars in Southern
states, which must be supplied, prevents Northwest
dealers from storing cars for spring delivery.
Delayed action in purchasing your Ford car
I believe the public should be informed of the con-
ditions as they have prevailed during the past year, as
they now are and as we have every reason to believe they
will be this coming season.
I will be glad to take your order at once while I am
in a position to make immediate delivery.
