(D. W Iliott in Easley Progress.)
Two boys, born of the same per
ente, brought up by th? same godly
mother, attended the same Sunday
school, her rd the same preacher
preach, educated at the same school,
left home together and both of them
hired to tho same merchant in a
nearby town to dork for him in his
store. The older of the two joined
the church and attended Sunday
school regularly, never touched
liquor, was very attentive to his du
ties. Tho younger hoy was by far the
moro talented, he made friends fast
er, ho pieased his customers bettor
at first, but be never attended Sun
day school, he seldom attended the
services at the church, and occasion
ally you could smell whiskey upon
his breath. He ran with the wild
boys around town. The merchant
could not soe how ho could dress so
well and go in such stylo on the sal
ary he paid him, and tho frequent
uso of whiskey began to tell on bim
in neglecting his duties in the store.
So at the first of the second year the
merchant told the young man that
his'services were no longer needed.
And, from bad to worse he went, and
soon became a loafor on the streets,
breaking his father's and mother's
hearts, disgracing their good name,
losing his own character, his health,
his mind, and, worse than all else,
his soul. The other boy continued
his attendance at church. Ho was at
the store late and early. Before the
second year had passed he became a
partner In the store and had married
tho merchant's daughter.
Why the' difference in these two
boys? Just because one wanted to
bo a man and a Christian and tho
other did not. Young mon, you have
your choice. Which wBl you take as
your example to follow?
Where to Find a Good Wife.
The great evangelist, Sam Jones,
once said that when he wanted a
good time, when he was a worldly
young man, he went to tho dance,
but when ho decided to get a wife
he went to the prayer meeting.
The Hon. Will H. Hayos, Postmas
ter General, was asked by a reporter
how he happened to meet his wife,
and where did you meet ber? His
answer was, "At a Wednesday night
prayer meeting, at Crawfordsvillo,
Ind., sitting next to her father."

NAVAL TROPHIES OP THE WAR.
Navy Re?oives War-Craft- Yankee
Tars Aboard Some of Hie
As a sincere acknowledgment of
the paramount value of the American
navy's part In tho World War, and
its signal performance In "guarding
the road to Franco," the Allied Peace
Council allotted to our sea, forces
eleven German fighting craft, rang
ing from dreadnaught to submarines.
Witjh the American flag at the peak,
and. according to customs of war,
flying high above the conquered Ger
man-,vwival ensign, these surrendered
ships entered New York harbor. All
Amerlcan crews were dispatched to
Europe to bring home these great
trophies. , .
These ar? th? first real prises of
war that have been won by the navy
in our times. In tho Spanish-Ameri
can war the Spanish armored cruiser
"Marie Teresa" surrendered af tho
battle of Santiago, but was lost at
sea, and other than a few small gun
boats captured at Manila Bay and in
Cuban waters, tho navy had no real
big prizes from tho war with Spain.
The treaty of poace ended once for
all the Gorman navy. Only the
treachery of the German admiral
robbed the Allied navies of the best
of the surrendered ships, for so woll
had the Gormans dono their work
that the new battle cruiser "Hinden
burg" could not be salvaged. Among'
tho ships beached and saved was, the
new scout-crulsor "Frankfurt,"wn.ich
has since been allotted to the Amer
ican navy and is now under our flag.
Damaged by the grounding at tho
Orkneys, the turbine machinery of
this ship was not In working order
and the Transport "Hancock" towed
the German vessel across the Atlan
tic. But the really big prize of our
spoils of war is the dreadnaught
"Ost Friesland," a handsome and
comparatively modern battleship of
22,??? tons, armored with twelve
12-inch guns and a powerful second
ary battery. Both the "Frankfort"
and the "Ost Friesland" bore the
brunt of battle and were in at the
melee at Jutland. The big ship, was
struck by a British torpedo, but, due
to the clever way tho Germans have
employed sub-dividing their hulls,
the vessel managed to limp into port.
The "Frankfurt" also came through
the action practically scot-free, being
hit only four times and sustaining ,
but few casualties.
Throe German destroyers wore al
so allotted to our nnvy Of these tho
G-102 had an Interesting career.
Built originally by Schlchau for Ar
gentino, as the St. Louis, the Ger
mans at tho outbreak of the war ap
propriated her and her four sisters.
This extremely fast craft took part
in the North Sea potions and was
one of the vessels scuttled at Scapa
Flow. The other two destroyers wero
also salvaged at the Orkneys, and
are, as far as the machinery is con
cerned, in a disabled condition. They
were towed in by the American mine
sweepers Rail, Red-Wing and Fal
con. Six German XJ-hoats have also
been delivered to us, and are now
in tho navy yards under examination
and study by our experts. These ves
sels will undoubtedly be placed in
first-class condition, and compara
tive tests will bo made to determine
tho relative value of the ships built
by Germany and those constructed
by our own experts.
