HIS OPPORTUNITY TO SERVE
Old Soldier Could Not Fight In Ranks,
But Could Prove He Was of
A year ago Anierlcnns were saying
thnt this was not an old man's wnr.
And tho old men, many of whom had
been soldiers In their younger days,
were feeling tho snmo wny 14ml suf
fering over It, too. Old women could
knit, roll bandages, nnd do u hundred
other things quite ns well as tho young
er women. But what could tho old
men do? And because there seemed
to be nothing for them to do, they suf
fered more keenly thnn most pcoplo
But ns tho young men left thero be

young or old, were needed. And thero

and happiness on tho faces of tho
But one of the most patriotic of all
was noted tho other day.
"I'd like to buy your old rubber and
rags," he said courteously, "or if you'd
give It to Ine It would bo still bet

nt his push cart which was nlmost
full of Junk. "I'll try to find some
thing," she began.
The old man's face wns rndlant.
"You see, Indy," he explained. "I'm
an old soldier and I'm on a pension
so I'm giving all my time to my coun

You Just go down nnd nsk them how
much I've turned In nnd you'll dccldo

BUILT FOR PIETY OR LUCK
Two Reasons Assigned for the Con
struction of Pagodas In Countries
of the Far East.
Tho word pagoda Is n Portugucsa
corruption of tho Perslnn "but
kahdah," meaning "but," nn "Idol," ami
"kndah," "temple." In the far East,
ns In India, Thlnn and Burma, they
are regarded as sacred towers, usually
more or less pyramidal lu outline,
richly carved, painted or othcrwlso
adorned, and of several stories, nnd
are sometimes connected with .a tem
ple. Such towers were originally
erected over relics of Buddha, tho
bones of n saint, etc., but nro now
built chiefly ns n work of merit on thu
pnrt of some pious person, or for tho
purpose of Improving tho luck of tho
neighborhood. In China pagodas nro
from 3 to IK stories high (al
ways an odd number). Their Drn
vidian shape Indicates that they orig
inated with tho earliest races of In
dia, who Inhabited the country previ
ous to the advent of tho Aryans. Tho
dato of the great pagodas at Tajoro Is
not certainly known, but It, with much
probability, referred to tho beginning
of tho fourteenth century. Tho so
called "Thousand Pagodas" of Brom
bannn In Java are obviously modeled
on Hindu originals, either Jain or
Expect India to Export Sugar.
Sugar making Is ono of India's most
nriclcnt Industiles, but the loss of
three-fourths of tho sugar valuo of
tho cane by ut-o of primitive machin
ery and the muddy character of tho
product, because religious prejudices
prohibit the use of animal chnrconl
for refining, havo confined India's
sugar to local consumption, says
World Outlook. With nearly three
million acres under enne, producing
considerably more than 11 third of tho
world's total, India nevertheless ox
ports no sugar. On tho contrnry, in

duction, she spends $25,000,000 for

tralized plants, and soon India the
nborlglnnl home of tho enne will

land coinmeusurato with tho
size of her cane crop. .
Submarine Is Blind and Slow.
In spite of tho fact that tho British
have somo steam-driven 2,700-ton sub
marines, capable of u surface speed
of from 1 to 2.1 knots, the submarine,
ns a weapon of war, Is too slow and
too blind when It Is submerged to
be considered a serious weapon of
naval warfare. Wbun It can see, elec
trically, to a dlstanco of 10 to 15
miles, whllo It Is submerged so deeply
as to be lnlslhlo to tho alrccout, and
when It enn steam 20 knots submerged,
It will dominate the naval situation.
New Synthetlo Milk.
A recently patented synthetic milk,
that can bo made Into butter and
cheese, Is produced by boiling sepa
rately, In three ijuaits of water for
each, ti grated coconut and three
ounces of a mixture of rlro nnd oat
meal. When tho wnter Is reduced to
one-half, the two liquids nro mixed to
gether and filtered. Tho process seems
to admit of utrlatlon, and other vege
table material rich In oil may be sub
stituted for tho coconut.
