HENRY AND NOAH. Speaking of
the ridicule of Ford's peace voyage,
Ms side partner, Mr. Bryan, says
that "if any people on Noah's ark
had been making money out of the
floo'd they would probably have ridi
culed Noah for sending out the
Not probably, but certainly, Mr.
Bryan. We haven't complete reports
on what took place on that ark. Very'
likely some fellow aboard, who had
enjoyed a monopoly in water cress,
rice, water lilies, or such, admired
that rainfall, hooted the idea that 40
days and nights was enough of it
There were in that boat Noah, Shem,
Ham, Japheth and their wives. It
would be another miracle of high
class if, in that crowd of eight, there
wasn't one who kicked on anything
tending to break up the pleasant life
of security, comfort and ease, after
150 days of it
With this proposition established
as premises, it is legitimate to con
clude that Noah was ridiculed, since
he was 600 years old and it was rea
sonably safe to do it, for it will be
remembered that Noah, desiring a
port, maybe desiring peace for fam
ily reasons, first Bent forth a raven,
which was lost, and then a dove, both
failing to find what Noah was after.
He undoubtedly got ridiculed for
sendiner out for land when there was
othing but water, Just as Ford to l
getting it for sending out for peace
when there's nothing but war.
Then, what did Noah do? Say,u
what did Noah do then? Why, he
gave the flood a chance to subside
somewhat, sent out the 'dove again
and got an olive twig, which indi
cated that there was some show for
a safe. landing. This .gave him the
laugh on Shem or Ham, or Mrs.
Shem or Mrs. Ham, or more likely
Mrs. Noah, who had made fun over
his losing that raven.
The similarity betwen the voyages
of Noah's ark and Henry's Oscar is
striking, up to the present, and Mr.
Bryan's reference to the matter is
a neat hit
IT LOOKS RIGHT QUEER.
Somebody please post us on this
crime called "conspiracy."
It appears that when Americans
band together to blow up non-union
shops and kill somebody they get life
sentence or are executed. It doesn't
make any difference if the guilty had
nothing directly to do with the actual
bombing or dynamiting. Indeed,
Americans have been convicted, of
capital offense for merely having
made sueeches that might be sug
gestive of dynamite or killings to
On the other hand, when foreign
ers within our domain raise funds
and organize agents for the blowing
up of factories and ships, regardless
of life, and in furtherance of a for
eign war, they get a notice of per
sonae non grata you're not liked,
officially or, at worst, two years'

rangement of justice; we're just say

A writer on a current magazine
calls attention to the fact that sev
eral words may be spelled either
backward or forward. For instance,
"reviver" and "madam." And how
about "level"? L T. M.
