Old Lady, Filled Up With "Car

of an Explosion.
A robust old woman in the moun
tains of north Georgia was ill for the
first time in her life and a doctor was
sent for. Partly by persuasion and
partly by force, the physician induced
his patient to swallow some big qui
nine capsules—a simple enough opera
tion, which, however, scared the old
woman almost to death. She was
soon able to sit up and her daughter
thought she would give the conva
lescent a treat. She took her moth
er's corncob pipe from the "shelf" or
mantel, filled it with tobacco, and
picking up a live coal .between two
sticks, started with it. toward the bed.

"Git away from me, Sary," she
screamed in terror. "Take away dat

Backache Warns You
Backache is one of Nature's warnings
of kidney weakness. .Kidney disease kills
thousands'every year.
Don't neglect a bad back. If your back
is lame—If it hurts to stoop or lift—if
there is irregularity of the secretions—
suspect your kidneys. If you suffer head
aches, dizziness and are tired, nervous
worn-out, you have further proof.
Use Moan's Kidney Pills, a tine medicine
for bad backs and weak kidneys.

The Bright Hopes of Youth That Were
Destined Forever to Be
When one is past middle life, mem
ory begins to unfold its pages. He
sees his youth, not as his own, but as
that of another. He is touched with
sadness and pity as he recognizes the
plans and ambitions, the high hopes in
the youthful breast that experience
has shown him were never to be real
ized, says a writer in the Milwau
kee Journal, One hope after another
had to be given up. Indeed, it seems
sometimes that life is but a giving
up day after day. Anticipations are
seldom realized. Perhaps it is best
that thiB should be for the same ex
perience that brought disappointments
showed us that, often as we thought
we knew what would '•make us per
fectly happy, we were nearly always
mistaken. It was the anticipation
really that went furthest toward mak
ing us happy. When it was over, it
had served its purpose another took
its place
So, as memory turns "the leaves, we
sigh a little at those bright hopes of
youth destined forever to be unful
filled. After all, it matters little. Each
of us had some share in the world's
work to do. How little it mattered
that that share was not what we had
guessed and wished it to be, if it was
performed faithfully! How many
things the bright dreams of youth
failed to take into account that were
to prove the greatest part of the
business of life! We are feeble in
judgment we do not always know
how to trim ourselves, nor see exactly
what form our lives should take.
Vicissitudes clip us here and there,
often where we have least. suspected
the need of it. But the failure of the
dreams should not grieve us.
After all, their real purpose was to
give us hope and courage and make
us work. If they, did that, they were
worth while, though not a single one
was ever fulfilled.
The Lion's Cubs.
The Canadian force, or the Lion's
Cubs, as it is frequently called in Eng
land, is, according to English mili
tary opinion, as fine an army corps as
has ever been assembled. Prom the
point of view of physique, equipment,
general smartness, organization, intel
ligence—from every standard, in fact
—it is as nearly perfection as a hu
man war machine of 35,000 men can
be. The force has with it 6,000 horses,
with an adequate staff of veterinary
surgeons, and it also has its own
Young Men's Christian association,
with six secretaries. If variety is the
very spice of life there ought to be
plenty of spice in the Canadian con
tingent. It is composed of men .spring

Swedish and French men of all
walks of life—architects, ranchers,
business men, lawyers, doctors. Once
a week services are conducted for
Wesleyans, Jews, Episcopalians, Cath
olics and Presbyterians. We look
forward with interest to hearing what
record these North American soldiers
will .make when they are sent to the

Old and New Use for Wire.
"Since the manufacture of wire be
gan in this country," said the veteran
steel manufacturer, "we have been
pulled out of many difficulties by un
foreseen developments. The wire
trade is more active today than any
other branch of steel, due to a large
extent to the consumption of wire for
war purposes. The substitution of
wire for fencing was another devel
opment responsible for the groat
growth of the industry. But the most
extraordinary boom came when the
wire industry was in its infancy. Busi
ness had been poor for a long time and
producers were very much discour
aged. Suddenly orders began to
make their appearance by the whole
sale, and the mills were taxed to
their utmost capacity. The increased
demand was due to the adoption of
the hoop skirt. Dame Fashion had
started the foundation of an indus
try in this country which now turns
out over 2,000,000 tons of wire a year.
The demand from this source, of
course, did not last, but it was suffi
cient to give the industry a good
start."—Wall Street Journal.
War Changes Guide Books.
One^ of the multitude of effects of
the war is its alteration of the guide
books to the continent, says the West
minster Gazette. The majority of
these have needed little change for
several years in the bulk of their
pages. But now—! A publisher of
guide books says that as regards Bel
gium, Austria and France there will
be wholesale corrections needed. And
the end is not in sight, for one may
confidently anticipate very striking
changes in Germany.
The year books, several of which
are now in active preparation, are ex
periencing similar difficulties. The
statistics of various public depart-,
ments have been "held up" owing to
the enlistment of officials .concerned
in this work. And when one does not
know what a day will bring forth it is
impossible to "close" pages for press.

Through speeches made in congress
and through the hearing before the
rules and military committees facts'
are coming out concerning the navy
and the army of the republic. No facts
are attested which have not been at
tested before, but today there is so
much interest in the general matter
of preparedness that the committee
proceedings are getting wide publicity
while in years past when the same
thing was told the committeemen,
little or no attention was paid to them.
The war in Europe has changed the
whole situation.
Unquestionably congress will make
a study of the lessons of the European
war by the military experts before it
appropriates money for specific types
of .big guns or of battleships. It does
not seem likely that the dreadnaughts
are to pass, although it doeB. seem
likely that the submarines will be
given a much more permanent place
in the plan of defense. Small field
howitzers may give way to big
field howitzers and it is barely pos
sible that the big 12 and 14-inch sea
coast guns may lose their emplace
ments to the 16-inch guns,' but before
final decision is made the efficiency
records of the ships of the war fleets
and the range and penetration and
general destructiveness of the differ
ent types of artillery weapons must
be determined. The present war is
depended upon to produce the proof
of offensive and defensive efficiency.

cers and of high civilian officials were
contributed some time ago to a New
York publication.. A senator of the
United States secured permission to
have the answers printed as a public
document. Until Recently there were
comparatively few calls for this docu
ment, but it can be secured today and
in it can be found just what high
officials, miltary and civil, think is the
trouble with the land forces of the
United States.
For instance there is an answer to
the question made by former Secre
tary of War Henry L. Stimson. He
cites examples of the troubles and
says that they "serve to show our
lack of intelligent system in dealing
with our army." Then he adds:
"These are all matters for us. They
demand the intelligent interest of the
citizens just as much as they involve
his ultimate safety and welfare."
The answers originally appeared in
the New York Independent and the
opinions of the officials at the head

the query: "What is the matter with

Is published by the Zeit. It begins with
preparations for the expedition "two

"Around the heavy granite rocks of
the long pier, monstrously black in the
dark night, the storm sweeps up the
water of the North sea in angry waves.
"At half past ten thero is a shrill
whistle from the little bridge which
stands high above the submarine and
which is covered with heavy canvas.
The officer in command, dressed In his
oilskins, gives the sign of departure.
The cables are loosened. A short sharp
signal to the engine room, the sudden
whirr as the motor catches and the
U-26 is under way. We are going to
ward the enemy.
"The earliest signs of dawn appear
when suddenly in the near distance
there is the sight of a heavy bulk,
swiLging high abovo us upon the wa

foam which a hostile torpedo destroyer
has just left behind, speeding toward
the east. We have managed to find
our way through the first line of the
enemy's advance guard. From now on
we must be very careful.

for action. The flag pole is taken down.
Part of the bridge is folded together

man on board a warship. If his time
comes, he can go down with a last look

the darkness under water.

heat and bad air and discomfort. In
small lighted letters the signboard
says 'attention.' The officer in com

From Their Method Originated the
Legend of the Golden Fleece—Coun
try Still Is Rich In Most Vat
uable Ores.
In the legend of the Golden Fleece
hidden the record of an ancient
method of the Tibareni, the sons of
Tubal, for tho collection of gold. Th©
north coast of Asia Minor produced
large quantities of the preciouB met-
als, as well as copper and iron. Gold
was found in the gravel, as often hap
pens still in streams draining from
copper regions. The gold in copper
ores, originally containing insignifi
cant amounts of the precious metals,
accumulates In the course of ages, and
sometimes forms placers of astonish
ing richness. The ancient Tibareni
washed the gold-bearing gravel, first
by booming, which concentrated th©
gold into relatively small amounts of
sand. This was then collected and
washed through sluices having the
bottoms lined with sheepskins. Tho
gold would sink into the wool, while
the sand would be washed away in
the swift-current, writes Courtenay
de Kalk in the Mining Age. The skins
were removed from the qluices, th©
coarser gold shaken out, and the
fleeces, still glittering with tjbie yellow
metal, were hung upon boughs to dry
so that the rest *f the gold, might
bo beaten from them and saved. Thp
early Greek mariners, witnessing this
process, carried home tales of the
wonderful riches of a land where a
warlike race of miners hung golden
fleeces upon the trees in the grove ot
Ares. After so many millenniums the

Encouragement From Mr. Howells.
From time to time as one advances
in years, one feels obliged, by that
sclerosis of the tastes which is apt to
occur in old age, to abandon the
world to its accumulated errors, and
retire upon the superiority of the ir
revocable past. At such moments it
appears that there are no such novels
as there once were, that fiction is not
at all the thing it used to be 'yet
from tim^to time amidst the flatter
ing despair in which one attributes to
oneself a share of that vanished su
periority, one has surprises of excel
lence in contemporary work. Some
unlmagined writer, hitherto quite un
read, presents himself in a book per
haps unwillingly borrowed and pro
vokes one to inquiry about the man
who wrote it. He could not have
written that story only: he must have
done others, better qr worse1, and one
goes on reading as many of his books
as one can lay one's hands on.—Wil
