They left home early In the morning, arriving at Gary Just before dark. Anxious to reach their destination as noon as possible, they left Gary after getting a supply of gasoline. A few miles out of Gary a heavy rnlnstorm checked their progress and throuded the countryside In pitch darkness. Losing their way they de cided to turn In at tho first gate and spend the rest of tho night in the automobile, rather than take chances of traveling by night In the darkness on unknown roads. A fdvv miles further on the outline of a ireo Just beyond an open gate was seen, and tho auto was guided beneath.

Indlnwipo lit) News, ADDED TO ROLL OF HONOR Too Beautiful. A man and his wife went to one of the most beautiful Islands In the Carlbhenn sea seven years ago to spend tho twilight of their lives In tho se rene beauty of tho tropics. It was a place which the husband, a seafaring man, bad chosen as the nearest ap proach to terrestrial paradise for those who have enough money to live with out working bard. The couple landed tit New York the other day with their Inres and penates and a parrot. Tho Ideal season Is Just about to begin In tho Caribbean, but It will start and. continue without this particular pair of humans. "We want an old-fashioned Now England win ter," said the wife.

Soldiers Reported 'MVHssing In Action" Have Been Classed as "Pre sumed Dead." According to The Home Sector there are still between 250 and 300 members of the American front line army still unaccounted for. In speaking of this war mystery of missing men tho ox-soldier's magazine says: "Soldiers who go Into battle are like men who go down to tho sea In ships. There are those who return and those who do not, those wlio live and tlioie who die. And then there are those who dwell for years In a twilight zone of uncertainty, neither life nor death, from which no word ever comes back to the shores called home. "A few weeks ago the newspapers of the country announced that there were no more members of the A. K. F. 'missing In nctlon. The only reason they are not missing In action Is that they have been 'presumed dead.' "There are still between 20 and 300 members of tho American front line army unaccounted for, who, carried on the rolls for mouths and months as missing In action, seem to have dls-, appeared from tho battle field as If by the wave of n magician's wand, leaving neither the ripple of a rumor behind them, the testimony of an eye, nor n footprint In all tho paths of the world. "They are the Irreducible minimum of the r0,000 lost, strayed or stolen men that the A. E. F. carried on the morning of Nov. 12, 1018. as missing In action. To guard against Injustice to their relatives or friends, the war department has ordered that from henceforth they be carried as' 'pre sumed dead' Instead of 'missing In ac tion,' In order that their war risk In surance benefits may be paid. That In brief explains why the American army as It stands demobilized today techni cally has no 'missing In action.' " New Metal Ladle Invented.

If this Is your Idea of the field and work of the modem program of the Young Men's Chrlstinn Association yon do not understand tho varied and ndnptablo program of the State Asso ciation of tho Young Men's Chrlstlun Associations of Nebraska.

The State Association conducts various older boys' Conferences, which challenge Uic boys to high Ideals of living appealing for cloan thoughts, clean sport, clean speech. A strong body actuated by a real purpose In life.

There Is a student Y. M. C. A In every college, university and aca demy In Nebraska. Tho purposo of the Student work Is to foster and dc velop the Christian character of stu dents already so Inclined and to lead' others where possible Into tho Chris tlnn life. It tends to follow up and make permanent tho Influence begun In the home nnd the high school, and to steady the lives of tho young men at n time when the stress nnd strain of temptation Is often severe. It en deavors to supplement the constructive Christian Influence of the home nnd the Church. (1. Through our State and District Secretaries, meetings for boys and young men are conducted with for a clean, purposeful life. 7. The Association movement has developed the Idea of the Father and Son meetings and as nn Inter-denomln-ntlonal agency has encournged and promoted them through churches nnd other organization until they aro today becoming one of the most popular and vital factors In moulding tho lives of our sons. Any city, community or church enn profit by this type of work In behalf of .their boys. 8.

DOING THINGS BY WHOLESALE Easy to See Many Advantages In 'New Methods Rapidly Being Brought to Perfection. Heretofore we have bought medlcnl service at retail. Now Glasgow Is try ing out a plan to sell medical service wholesnle. What Glasgow Is striving to do is this: Divide the city in districts and provide free dispensaries and free doc tors to all who need medical attention. It is claimed that such a scheme will reduce the death rate, because many poor people now skimp their families In tho matter of health precautions. And the doctors like It, also. They work fewer hours uiid u stundnrd pay Is guaranteed. Withal, the Glasgow plan of whole sale doctoring Is said to be cheaper than our old-fashioned retail method, "GIrard" writes In the Philadelphia, Press. American cities have made half a step toward such doctoring of the peo ple In wholesale lots. We have boards of health and health bureaus. They administer in u gen eral way" and they administer In whole sale doses. An order goes out and It gdes for all the people. It Is economical and wise, as every one knows, during such nn epidemic ns the "flu" was last year. Doctoring by wholesnle saved mil lions of lives In that one calamity. Uncle Sum did the Insuring of his own soldiers by wholesnle In the last war. Public schools supply education In wholesale quantities. Our spiritual wants are supplied In fashion wholesale through tho churches. So wltolesnle doctoring Is only an other day's mnrch In tho general di rection of a socialistic emnjre. ED.
