"Honest, Arthur, hiear my plea,
Or you'll prove the death of me!
Say, remember this is March
And there's ice by High Bridge arch!
Put that high-dive stuff away
Till at least the end of May!
Can that Hudson swimming, please,
Till the leaves are on the trees;
Shift the time, re-write the part,
But have a heart, man, have a heart!"
To tlls invocation from the Pathe
star the author of "The Iron Claw"
elt lack the following reply:
Yearless, peerless, reckless Pearl,
More a sea-bird than a girl,
More a wisp of flying spray
Than a child of mortal clay,
Dodging bullets, ditching trains,
Leaping slap through window-panes,
Smashing motor-cars kerflop,
Always coming out on top,
Trapped by villains black with gore,
Giving same the slip once more,
Gaily facing a la mode

almost $30,000,00 or 17 per cent, of
capital invested in the State in 1914
over 1909 indicated by figures of the

South Carolina were shown.

For the Claw that drags you back
Leaves them gasping on the rack,
And each plunge you take, dear maid,
Though from roadster, Palisade,
Or from studio river-bank
Pulmp into the Pathe tank,
Warms them to their very toes,
Making cock tails of your woes,
Therefore though the chill Atlantic
Ice-floes drive you nearly frantic
Jump you must into that river
That we all may share your ahiveri

How Land Work Affects Climate.
The character of climates is vari
ously affected by the presence or ab
sence of trees and other vegetation.
In a British association address, Sir
Charles P. Lucas noted that clingates
became both hotter and colder when
the surface of the earth has been bared
by the cutting down of trees; they be
come drier or moister with the de
struction or planting of trees; ail
healthfulness or unhealthfulness may
be determined by the removal or re
taining of the forests. The Canadian
northwest is cited as an example.
Broken or plowed land does not re
tain snow and ice like the unbroken
prairie surface, but it is more reten
tive of moisture and the heat of the
sun. As a result there has been per
coptible agricultural improvement of
the clinAate, with an extension of the
wheat belt considerably farther north
than formerly. Lord Strathcona be
lieved that the rails and telegraph
lines of the Canadian Pacific railway
brought some change even before the
coming of the settlers, an increase in
dew and moisture having been quite
evident near the railway.
Sympathy is Great Need.
A blight which often falls upon the
souls of men who have studied long
and perhaps bear learned titles is the
blight' of a narrow and ungenial view
of life. They end at the barred window,
and not at an open doorway. Sympa
thy puts the crown upon the head of
the educated man; He has a fellow
feeling for all men, because his wide
experience of life has enabled him
to understand them. Mingled in this
sympathetic attitude of the' educated
man is humility, that grows out of
knowledge. He stands with Newton
on the shote, aware of the wide, un
attempted sea. He knows that the
corner of 'knowledge where he works,
though but a corner, is yet related
to all learning and all places where
others are at work.
Censoring "Romeo and Juliet.*

what would an ofilcial censor say of

"Cut out Juliet. Here is a girl just
in her teens conducting herself in a
most unmaidenly manner. . . . There

these to a flash of about ten feet. The

disapproval of th6 administration pt
