DESPERATE LEAP FOR LIFE
Parachute the Only Hope of Occu
pants of Observation Balloon
Destroyed at the Front.
A I3ritish observation balloon, an
choredt at the western front, had its
cables cut by enemiy airplanes, and
the balloon soared thousands of feet
upward into the clouds. A writer In
London Mail, who witnessed the
incident, describes what followed.
From the point where it vanished, he
says, we presently saw one small
speek, then anot her, dropping from the
clnuds, For some hundreds of feet
they fell like dead weights, then para
chutes opened, and the specks, now
reveiled as men, were steadied In
their earthwiard course, floating rap
idly, htit safely. to the ground.
After th ihlloon got free, they had
diestroyed hIelir pae'rs atid instru
n-lits, eInminotrml over the side of the
basket, am lented for life into the
great vol biena th them. trusting that
the paraeliutes strappied round their
waists woIld open when they should.
Tinik of that desIperate spring into
the %tst, gray vapory nothingness he
nenthi t ie halloon ; the feelings of the
non as they made it, uncertain of
what wu-ould linhipen; the awful sensa
tion of ast intt ywtirself blindly from
such an appallling height with the
knowledte t hat only a illnsy pilece of
material, which might aet rightly and
might not, intervened between your
self and a crash into the earth many
thousands of feet below; the tenso
strain of the stone-like drop through
two hundred feet of the void before
the parnehute opeted, and then the
anxious mental qu(ery, through the
later stages of the descent: "What
shall I light upon?"-a matter of su
preme Consequence that chance gov
erns absolutely. In this case, the men
made a safe landing.
SPLENDID WORK OF DIVER
Feat of Underwater Repairing on
Wrecked Steamer Is Given High
Praise by Shipping Men.
One of the most remarkable feats In
the history of American labor, accord
Ing to Capt. Louls Turner, represent
ing marine underwriters, was the sub
inarine repairing of a stfamer sal
vaged off the California copst by a
diver named Theodore Wicks. The
success of this ninan In his perilous
work made it possible to raise the ves
sel for further important service in the
government's war pfogrnm, where ship
ping is so urgently needed.
There were fully 100 patches of tem
porary natuire to he put on the shatter
ed sides of the vessel while it was
bumping about on the rocks, making it
by all odds the biggest job of the kind
ever atIempted on the P1nelfle const.
The biggest pa teli was ten feet wide
and 10 feet long. Three layers of inch
iank, with cainvas between, were used
inl patching. This kept tle vater out
while the ship wan being pumliiped.
Large inters of shipping men vis
Ited the tdry dock where the ship went
after Diver Wick's exploits, and wvere
jistonisled that it had been possible to
salvage te ie(sl at all. The diver's
work is viewe'd all along the coast as
an Inspiration to labor iI its great task
of winningli the war.

"GET THEE BEHIND Mgt
"The downfall of Germany began In
1870," said Franz Sigel, son of the
famous Gen. Franz Sigel. Gernany's
victory in 1870 was overwhelning, but
'n the end it overwhelmed her. Men
who achieve sudden eminence or for
tune often become intoxiented by
their own success, says Milwaukee
Journal. They scorn the steps up
whch they cane. They become arro
gant, selfish and self-centered. So it
is with nations. - Victory, prosperity,
power conspire to turn their heads.
They glory in their brute strength and
lose the sense of moral values. Itight
st.eis to thei only their right. lRight
as between iti and other nations
teses to exist. They seei to them
eives to sit 111ln s oi a iinnele.

The war has re-enforced the prole
tarIat by reducing to its ranks whole
sections of the former middle class
the great hrmy of salaried employees
and others of fixed incomnes, who have
suffered from the rise of prices more
severely than manual workers, and
have seen their savings waste away
and their standard of living rediced
until they are on the verge of pauier
ium, says World's Work. This Is no
exaggerated statement; it describes
the actual conditions of minor govern
ment employees, teachers, salesmen,
clerks, office workers aud others in re
Iated occupations throughout central
The radlenl changes sweeping over
the world just now will probably in
clude the fetleh of precedent. Of
Course, it stiffents a mnn's backbone
in doing an unuisuil thing to be able
to say that sonebody else has already
done it before himl. But he ought to
have originl backbone enough to do it
ibeeause it is the obvioum thing to be
done, irrespective of the detail
whether it has been done hofore or
not. And nations require backbone in
dealing with einelttncies quite an
much as do individuna.
