MOTOR BOAT REAL, CHURCH
Gospel Ship on Puget Sound of Great
Comfort to People In Ro.
Of the 19 counties of western Wash
Ington 18 are accessible to seagoing
vessels, according to Agnes Lockhart
Hughes, in Everybody's. Hence the
Robert 0. Seymour, a floating church,
operated on Puget sound by Rev. WiI-.
bert R. Howell and his wife.
During the four years that the Rob
ert G. Seymour has been In operation
it has traveled on an average of 3,000
miles a year, carrying religion to Is
land county and up Hood canal. It
regularly visits 11 ports and as many
logging coips, bringing - religion to
those who cannot seek it. The boat
is gone often for a month at a time,
and often has weathered some of the
toughest gales ever experienced on
the sound. Not infrequently, after a
sermon delivered aboard the gospel
ship, or on shore, some woman will
come forward with a question on her
ips regarding what lies near her
heart relative to the latest style in
dresses or hats, and always an an
swer is forthcomi'ng-for the good pilot
never omits to include fashion books
among his hymnnals.
One woman acknowledged that a ser
mon preached recently by the captain
of the Gospel boat was the first she
had heard in a tdozen years. She was
the mother of nine children and had
had no opportunity previously of hear
Ing a church service.
MADE OVER FOR BOOKLOVERS
New York Has Substitute for Saloon,
Where Literature and Soft
Drinks Are Sold.
A new idea in the way of a substi
tute for the saloon is to be tried out
in the Booklovers' tavern, recently
opened in New York, the Philadelphia
Inquirer states. This is simply a place
with the familiar bar and brass rail,
where soft drinks and literature are to
be dispensed together. Thus the men
tal exhilaration to be derived from
the latest novel will satisfy those ac
custoned to the cocktail and give gin
ger ale or ice cream soda a fillip it
has not hitherto had.
The Booklovers' tavern may draw
book purchasers, though its superiority
to the ordinary bookshop is not ap
parent. But can it be expected that
thirsts vill be assuaged in this way?
And will those who seek inebriation
between covers be able to pay the
price? A Kipling highball or a Wells
fizz at $1.75 is considerably more than
the purchasers of alcoholic beverages
have been charged under wartime
It is obvious,.too, that the kind of
literature dispensed over the bar will
have to be very carefully guarded.
Many of our poets were a roistering
lot, -who di.d not hesitate to celebrate
the charms of the Demon Rum.
In England airmen were npt to be
ardent hunters of the fox and to have
what horsemen call "hands"-a quality
which as aviators enabled theta to
know instinctively, as it were, what
an airplane was going to do before
it dId it. And, what will be shocking
to some folk, to keep the aviator in
best condition for- his wvork and for
endiurlng its terrible stresses, he seem
ed, according to these authoritIes, to
needl "a really rIotous ev'ening at
least once or twice a month." The
older mena were found to use alcohol
freely, but the younger- ones requlred
no such stimulaints, and they nil avoid
ed excess, being well awvare that for
thmem the penalty w~as sudden (leath.
Marriage deteriorated the aviator by
i-easing his sense of personal re
sponsibility for others. Courage he
had, of course, and a touch of reck
lessness is not undesirable fr-om the
standpoint of achievemient in war.
