KENTUCKY NATIONAIj RIFLKS.
Camp Perry, O., Sept. 9, 1921.
Capt. Ray II. Nowltt,
A. few lines concerning the Ken
tucky National Rifle Team's trip to
Camp Perry, Ohio.
First, wo were given the very best
of service from Camp Knox to Camp
Perry, pullman, sleeping and din
ing service nil thru. Every one of
the party seemed to enjoy It Im
mensely. Camp Perry is on the beach of
Like Erie and the lake Is In plain
view st all times
Upon arriving here we were Issu
ed new Star Ouage RIflles, plenty of
bltnkets, etc., and were quartered
in tents Instead of barracks as was
the esse at Camp Knox. Every man
Is on an equal basis here and all are
having a great time.
Our mess cannot be equalled by
tbe best hotels, therefore it Is useless
to say we are having plenty of eats.
Today I won the "National Rifle
man's Medal" by piercing the bull
eye 10 times In rapid Are shooting
on the 200 yard range.
Am writing these few lines as I
thought you would be interested In
knowing how the Kentucky team Is

CAREERS FOR YOUNG BRITONS
Compared With Opportunities In Amtr.
lea Thty May Be Said to Ba
Here in America we are quite like
ly to take for granted that if a man
has a good education, then his finding
of an opportunity to apply It profit
ably is a comparatively simple mutter.
Certainly our whole educational pro
gram, and especially eur whole line
of educational appeal and propaganda,
will have to be changed tbe moment
that assumption is no longer to be
made, Whiting Williams writes In
Scribner's. "Equip yourself, Young
America, and the country's yours !" we
say in effect to our youtayvhether In
school or at work.
In Britain there is much testimony
to the effect that that assumption Is
not thus to bt made.
Unlsss they spend additional years
training for medicine, the law, or oth
er of the professions, graduates of the
universities must pretty much expect
to find berths In the civil service. The
exams for that are extremely difficult.
Those who come out of them with
marks at the top of the list get the
best of the positions in the most Im
portant departments at home. They
next go out to India r other provinces,
while these below them take the sec
ond grade ef the places here and

TAUGHT LESSON BY HUNGER
Good Story of How Franklin Was
Converted to the Idea of Fish
as Human Food.
One day Benjamin Franklin James
Parteu tells us In bis "Life of Ben
jamin Franklin" was on a sloop
which was becalmed on a certain
island. Tiie sailors, us Is still the cus
tom when a ship is becalmed, amused
themselves by fishing. Franklin wit
nessed Uie catching of the fish with
regret. But soon there came to tantu
llxe his nostrils a most alluring odor
from the frying pan. So, as Franklin
used to tell the story, he went over
his reasonlag again to see If there was
not a flaw in it.
It occurred to him that when the
fish were opened he had seen smaller
fish in their stomnchs.
"Ah!" sold Franklin. "If you ent
one another I don't see why we may
not eat you!"
So Franklin dined upon the fish
very heartily, and thereafter ate whut
others ute. When telling this story
Franklin ended with an observation
which Is often attributed to Tulley
rand, but which we are assured was a.
familiar Joke with Franklin. This
"So convenient a thing It Is to be
a reasonable creature, since It en
ables one to find or make a reason
for everything one has a mind to do 1"
Persian Oread Has Many Usee.
At Kasvln. Persia, a British patrol
baxe, we were lodged In empty wards
of the military hospital, writes Mary
K. Qrlscom In Asia Magazine. Our
provisions had almost given out by
this time, and we were reduced to
Persian stone bread. So far us I
know, only the coconut and tbe bum
boo serve more purposes than tbe
flaps of Persian bread, which ure
about two feet long, one foot wide
and a quarter of an Inch thick. If It
is raining, the Persians iwe them on
their heads aa umbrellas; and if It 1h
sunny, as parusols; In winter, they
wrap the flips around their shoulders.
If they do not need them for protec
tion they roll them up aud curry
them, under, their, arms. Inthg)!Q-

Miss CleoSiler, Stenograph

Louisville, Ky. writes:
"Dear Mr. Bunnell: The
course in Shorthand I took
under your instruction last
year has been all and even
more than you claimed for
it. I am more than satisfied
with the Course and the po
sition it has secured for me"

Up the Flowery Mountain.
13ery yeur thousands of Chinese
pilgrims risk their lives In climbing
up tho side of Hwa-Shan, the Flow
cry mountain, which Is sacred to the
TaolUt lellglon. Any one reaching the
temple fur above Is supposed to have
nny request grunted as a reward for
valor and endurance. The Hwa-Shan
mountnln Is over 0,000 feet high, and
the ascent in many places must be
made along a narrow ledge of branches
laid on posts driven horlsontally Into
the face of the precipice. There are
no liandrnlU, but a chain held on a
rock face offers some security to the
ascending or descending pilgrim.
