ALAS THE ANGLE WORM
And now we have a device by which the angle worm is hunted in his
lair, brought to the surface to be devoured for the sustenance of the great
American hen. Peter J. O'Keefe, of Greenwich, Connecticut is the inventor.
The device is an electrical one and literally shocks the worms out of
the ground. It consists of two brass rods that are pushed into the earth I
several feet apart. A wire is attached to each rod and each wire connects
with an ordinary telephone magneto.
By twisting the handle of the magneto the angle worm feels it is time
to take the air. Rapidly he moves to escape, but, alas! the chicken is a
waiting, and as soon as the worm imagines he is safe from danger his troubles e
come to an end.
Thus does the world move on. If the mentality of the angle wormt
were properly developed, he would sense the greater danger of leaving his
As time goes on and the standard of angle worm intelligence advances,
things may improve for him; but in the meantime, he will have to look for
temporary protection to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty
to Angle Worms, an organization which undoubtedly will come into being as
soon as the cruelty of the O'Keefe device is conceived.
Surely such an opportunity for a new protective and paternalistic so
ciety cannot be missed.
OUR COLLEGIATE ICEMEN
American colleges prepared for the greatest year in their history. In
almost every state of the union the enrollment figures show marked ad. al
vances and records broken.
Yale, Princeton, Wellesley, Union, Pennsylvania, Vassar, Dartmouth and bi
Tulane reached the pinnacle of their prosperity. It is also true of many m
Fact is that this prosperity for colleges is due largely to the change In bh
the viewpoint of our educational institutions. Many cobwebs have been to
swept away. Si
Today the college means more than the accepted understanding of acade
mic teaching. It means a broader vision of life and a greater understanding tic
of the necessity for the thing worth while. tic
The college man today is to be found everywhere. He is at the head of tol
a great banking institution, he is a chauffeur, he drives an ice wagon, he
tills the soil, he appears in literature and ornaments the plumbing estab. in
Sometimes the unthinking criticize the college because its graduates may
be found driving a milk wagon and the like. The answer, of course, is that 64
if all milk wagon drivers were college men milk would be delivered more
orderly and even our babyhood would be helped.
The greatness of the college does not lie in its being the gangway down del
which one may walk to the professions. Its worth is in giving to the country -
men who can thoroughly perform the duty of the hour.
The college is not the panacea for empty skulls. The best it can do is
to equip the man who has something under his hat.

Ever since the days when old Homer
wrote of the hometcoming of Ulysses
when his faithful old hound alone
recognized him in his disguise as a
beggar, there have been some of the
finest bits of literature devoted to
noble characteristics of dogs. Llewel
lyn's faithful hound, Bill Sykes' loyal

Pierrot, Dog of Belgium. Caesar the
King's dog are just a few of the mod
erns whose names come to memory out
of some of the golden books. Fond
as the world has always been of ,love
and romance it has always been glad
to turn to the book which had a real
dog for its hero, partly because of the
innate liking of humanity for honesty
and nobility of character, and partly
because of all the creatures man has

Ducks Are Enabled to Shed
Water From Their Backs
"Like water off a duck's back" is a
phrase that we often use, for a duck's
back is the most perfect waterproof
in the world.
Land birds are soon saturated by a
heavy shower of rain. You may see
them afterwards fluffing out their
feathers so that sun and wind may I
dry them. But no drop of water can I
penetrate the plumage of any aquatic
bird. Gulls, ducks, grebes, and core- I
rants dive after food on the bleakest I
days without getting either wet or t
These birds are provided with a nat
ural mackintosh in the shape of a
covering of feathers which fit tightly
one on top of the other. But their
plumage would not remain waterproof
if they did not look after It carefully.
Every feather must be greased at least
once a day if it is to tarn the water.
Watch a duck after its bath and
yeou will see the process. The beak
is pushed hard into the roots of the
feathers, and then brought up to their
very tips. Diving birds are provided
with special glands which supply the
beak with all the grease it needs.

ities Who Prey on High.
? way Tourists.
Minneapolis, Miun.-Tourists, espe.
clally those from other states than
Minnesota, will not be the prey of
overzealous authorities in the small
towns of Minnesota, who are rigidly
enforcing local traffic c-odes with a
zest, bent upon enhancing their own
salaries or enriching the coffers of the
village, If a movement started among
several towns continues to spread.
Vigilance committees, composed of
residents of the communities, have
been formed, which the tourist who has
been haled into court may depend on
for fair, reasonable treatment. These
committees will see that too rapid jus
tice will not engulf the Innocent, es
pecially when the motorist happens to
be a tourist from outside the state,
and therefore exl.. cteflly ignorant of
the traffic laws in that locality.
With the tourist industry developing
by rapid strides in Minnesota, the ac
tion of the small town officers in strict
ly enforcing petty infractions was seen
as a possible deterrent and mnenacing
factor to its progress, according to
Perry S. Williams, manager of the
Minneapolis Journal travel and resort
bureau, who was instrumental In or.
ganizing the first vigilance committee.
"The trouble apparently threatened
as a result of the fact that at many
points both the constables and depu
ties making the arrests and the court
officer before whom the alleged of
fenders must appear profited with the
assessment of the fine," Mr. Williams
said. "Part of the work of the vigi
lance groups will be to correct this ar
rangement where it exists. Efforts
will be made to place such officers on
a definite and increased salary basis.
Also It is planned to have moneys pro
cured from fines placed In road funds
to help along the general work of bet
tering the state highway conditions."
Communities lying along the state
highwa3 leading to and around Mille
Lacs lake, on trunk highway No. 18,
were first to organize the "vigilantes."
Princeton led the way with the organl
zation of a highway vigilance commit
tee and similar groups are being
formed at Onamls, Milaca anl Isle.
