To those; who linc no recour.se In
themselves for living well, every age
Is buuleiiMiino. We must ilsht against
disease. Itepind must lie paid to
health. Moderate exercise must be
adopted. So much of meat and drink
must be taken. Senile folly, which is
commonly culled dotage, belongs to
weak old niPii, but not to all. Kor, as
I like young men In which there is
something of the old, so I like old men
In whom there Is something of the
young. One who alwajs lives in these
pursuits and labors for the welfare of
the state does -not perceive when old
age steals upon him. t'lteru.

Whale-headed, or shoehlll storks are
remarkably rare birds. The American
Museum of Natural History has re
ceived a skin and skeleton of one of
these uncommon members of the feath
ered world. Only four other speci
iucnts of the birds nre known to be In
this country. They were all secured
by Colonel Itooscvclt and are all In
the National museum at Washington.
The whale-headud stork is a large
African bird found only In the pnpy
rtts marshes of the Upper Nile and
along the northern edge of Lake Vic
toria and on the upper Lunlaba.
It is uncommon, even where found,
and very wild. It is now carefully
protected by all the European gov
ernments which have colonies in
Africa, special permission being re
quired for hunting it.
It is of scientific importance for
the reason that It mny he related
to the herons, and If so, constitutes
a very reninrknble link between two
orders of birds. In appearance It is
of gaunt, gray figure, some fivo feet
in height. Its large head Is sur
mounted by a little curled tuft. The
expression of its eyes Is scowling.
Its huge hill, In shape similar to a
whale's head, Is tipped with a for

Phrase in Such Common Use Today
Can Be Traced to an Old
"To pour oil on troubled waters"
means to smooth out a difference or
to allay a commotion of any sort. The
original use of the phrase was quite
literal and goes way back to an old
Latin legend. Uttn, a priest, was sent
Into Kent for Euufled, the daughter
of King Edwlne, who was to be mar
ried to King Oswlrra. The priest went
to the bishop to ask his prayers for a
safe journey, nnd the bishop, predict
ing a tempest at sea, gave him a pot
of oil, saying:
"Remember that you catt Into the
$ea this oyle that I giro you, an anon,
the winds being Iaied, comfortable,
fayer weather shall ensue on the sea."
The tempest came as predicted and
tlio sailors and passengers were ex
pecting death every minute, according
to the legend, when the priest, foe
thinking himself of the oil, cast It Into
the sea, In a second the waves be.
came calm und the wind died down.
From that time "pouring oil on trou
bled .waters" became a popular metaphor,

God and Civilization
Egypt and Babylonia were the first "civilized" nation's.
The possibility of Egyptian civilization may have been derived '
from the Babylonian is not denied, but the evidence is not suf
ficient to decide the question. Long before 3000 years before
Christ, Egypt possessed an independent culture. There never
has been (perhaps never will be) a fuly civilized natino. Tip
perary is much nearer than civilization. All theories as to the
origin and development of religion are based on insufficient and
ambiguuous data. We don't know what people first believed
in THE INFINITE SUPREME BEING. Wonder, born of ig
norance, fear, and weakness, unite to produce veneration. The
sense of dependence, the awe of nower, the curiosity of a being
whom effects suggest causes the play of imagination natural to
man above all, the suggestion of the existence of spirits great
er than his own to a being who feels himself to be a spirit
these are sufficient to account for the general phenomena of
man's religious history. Outward nature, with her illimitable
sky, her sun and moon, planets and stars, her oceans and moun
tains, her dark forests full of widrd voices, her monsters of sea
and land with their roar and hiss earthquakes, volcanoes,
eclipses, fountains springing up in deserts, rivers running un
der ground, caves and cataracts, the change of the seasons,
life and death these from the earliest times have prompted
in man, civilized or Uncivilized, Christian or Pagan, or have
forced upon him a faith in creative, mastering, invisible or
superior human beings and powers, evil and good, demons and
angels, for whom he has felt a shuddering reverence, a cower
ing dread, and an awestruck desire to propitiate their favor or
their mercy, hence the many false gods that were and are,
and possibly always will be.
To the everlasting shame of Missouri, the most iniquitous
law ever proposed to be fostered upon the American people,
the anti-lynching bill, was originated by a Missourian Con
gressman Dyer of St. Louis. And why? For no other pur
pose but to furnish political fodder to the herd of low grade
negroes of St. Louis who elected him, and upori whose votes
he expects to depend to succeed himself. When politics has
been sunken this low it is time for the devil and his angels to
vacate their domain of darkness, and permit those who know
how to move in and set up a real modern hell that would make
Dante's Inferno read like a prayer book in comparison.
