It is interesting to recall the vari

They are as old as time. First they
took place on foot with perhaps the
aid of a rowing boat to help cross a

very eyes of her irate parents. Later
came the coach to aid Romeo and Juli

Trains and automobiles have also
played their part in "love's young
dream," but the future "stunt" will be
to elope by airplane.
The airplane wooer will have to be
on his guard against the vigilance of
the law which has already found the
flying machine useful in the execution
of Justice. Thus a policeman in Los
Angeles attempted to arrest a Jap
anese aviator for debt. The man
promptly flew off while the policeman
gave chase In an automobile. The
pursuit continued until the aviator wag

Bermuda. The vessel was delayed a
few days off the coast while it was
decided to bring him back by hydro

Harold McCormick. The owner, ac

pilot. In a few minutes they were
alongside the ship, the thief was ar
rested and taken back a prisoner.

Fishing is not like farming. The
farmer can reckon pretty well what
his crops are going to yield, but the
fisherman merely guesses.
Our East coast fishermen, for in

Silence fell on the group. The un

life and revealed the truth, remarks a
London Answers writer.
He hadn't "lived." Life, by his own
choice, had been just work and sleep,
sleep and work. No, please do not
seek to excuse him by saying that
possibly his work was his life. In a
sense it was, but it had no right to
be. He was in the world as much to
live as to work.
The divine plan never intended that
any man should use his life wholly and
solely for work. That, most obvious

leave no time for "living" in the rea?
sense of the word. It would be the
turning of the grindstone, with no eye

Have we not to take from, as well as

like their work so much that it Is their

Do not we work to live? Why, then,

may be argued that our necessities and
our responsibilities compel. They
should not. Take the case of the man
who died. He worked and worked
and never broke off to ';llve," because
of his responsibilities. In the end,
and as the result, he died In the prime

Superstition Among French People.
That superstition and belief In
witchcraft and sorcery are not dead
in France was shown the other day
in the case of a young Parisian girl,
who, acting on the advice of a fortune
teller, burled a calf's heart in a wom
als grave in order to recover the af
fection of her faithless lover.
In the provinces such cases are
common. There, are villagers who are
popularly believed to cast spells over
their neighbors; magicians and sor
cerers in the back valleys of the
Loire and on the lonely Landes of
Brittany who wield mysterious power
and call up unseen forces of good or
evil to sooth or terrorize the peas
Frequently French superstition finds
comfort in "goo- spirits" in the form
of magicians who are learned In the
art of discovering buried treasure or
of healing the sick. They are reputed
to hold converse with the spirits of
the departed and are consulted by
their neighbors on family affairs like
wills or marriages just as the Oraclei
were consulted In ancient times.
