Brooklyn’s “First Citizen,”
A Former Waldo County Boy
The Brooklyn, N. Y.t Citizen of a recent
date gave a page account of the HOlh i
birthday celebration of Hon. David A. !
Boody, a native of Jackson and a brother {
of Mrs. ft. W. Johnson of this city. The
Citizen also dignifies the occasion with
the following editorial tribute:
At the dinner given last night by the
Prospect Heights Association at the Mon
tauk Club to David A. Boody, in celebra
tion of his entrance upon the ninth decade :
of his life, the former Mayor was bailed '
as “Brooklyn’s first citizen,” a title
which before him was worthily borne by
tbe late J. S. T. Stranahan. In wh.it con
sists this pre-eminence of “first citizen”
in a community numbering two million
souls? 1 here are in Brooklyn m a of
more diversified business interests man
Mr. Boody; there are men who measure
their wealth by millions more than the
modest competence he possesses; there
are men who have held higher public of
fice, yet none of these men is so clearly
entitled to the designation of “first citi
zen” as he, whose life has been devoted
to the finer threads, as Dr. Boynton said
in his splendid address, in the body pol
In the field ol education, as typilied by
our schools and libraries, Mr. Boody’s ac
tivities were glowingly praised by Presi
dent Somers of the Board of Education,
who received his first appointment as a
member of the Brooklyn board from
Mayor Boody twenty-eight years ago,
and by Mr. Hill, head of the great library
system of which the honored guest of the
evening was the actual founder and the
first and only president. In the domain
of civics Mr. Boody made his mark both
as a member of Congress during the try
ing years when his party was rent by the
free silver agitation and as Mayor of
Brooklyn at that transition period when
the city was emerging from its rural com
munal life into the magnificent metropol
itan borough of today. _ j
On this topic Almet F Jenks, who was
the right-hand man of the Mayor, serv
ing as his Corporation Counsel, spoke il
luminatingly and with deep feeling. He
gave to Mr. Boody the credit at the Sara
toga conference of determining the course
of the Democratic party in this State in
favor of sound money, and from intimate
personal knowledge and daily association
he was able to testify to the purity, the
loftiness, the wholly unselfish motives
which guided his chief’s every action dur
ing two trying years.
From financial and educational institu
tions with which he has been connected,
the People’s Trust Company, the Brook
lyn Institute of Arts and Sciences, the
Berkeley Institute, tributes of affection
and admiration were laid at the feet of
the “first citizen.” And when it came
his time to speak, he stood erect in all
the majesty of his eighty fruitful years,
tall and straight as an Indian, scarcely a
wrinkle showing on his clean-shaven
face, his hair still retaining its natural
dark color, his voice vibrant and strong,
a perpetual marvel to younger men, of
one who has defied time and who hasdis

Ponce de Leon sought in vain in the en
chantedl and of Florida.
That secret Mr. Boody disclosed for the
benefit of his hearers. It was a simple
recipe: Live to be useful to your fellow
man. All his life he had exemplified this
teaching, and now that the shadows were
lengthening, the great tribute of affection
and respect poured out so copiously last j
night by his fellow-citizens and neigh
bors constituted an inspiration to him to
try to do even better. In placing the
civic crown upon the head of David A.
Boody, the hosts of last evening placed
it upon no unworthy brow. Brooklyn
has once more a “first citizen,’’ the va
lidity of whose title will go unchallenged.
Captured German airplanes brought to
this country for study by aviation ex
perts, reveals that the Germans are using
materials very inferior to the standards
set for American planes and apparently
are very short of spruce and linen.
The wing beams of the captured Ger
man planes were made of thin pieces,
some of them less than an inch in thick
ness, which had been put together with
glue and nails. Specifications for Amer
ican planes require a solid beam of the
finest and toughest spruce. Wings of the
German planes are covered with fibre
cloth, instead of approved linen.
In order to hasten the government’s
aircraft program, authority has been
given to commandeering spruce in the
northwest wherever it is found. The
trees are being split where they lie, so :
that delivery to the government cut-up I
mill, near Vancouver Barracks, may be
facilitated. Recently, one tree of spruce
was felled, which was 260 feet long, !
15 feet in diameter at 20 feet from the
ground and 160 feet in the length to the
first limb. The tree was split and hauled
15 miles over a mountain range to the

THE wayfarer in China wh(
turns south to Anglicized Hong
kong, multitudinous Canton 01
that vivid hybrid of East and
West, Shanghai, falls even to brush
the strangest and most ancient mys
tery of the (Jrngon kingdom. That
mystery lies in North China, an Im
memorial mystery that wraps Peking
like an imperial mantle, a somber
northern inscrutability that enfolds
the great wall as impenetrably as
the mists obscuring its turrets, writes
Olive Gilbreath in Asia. It Is a mys
tery so invincible that, once in a
man’s blood, there is little choice left
him but to follow Its lure on and on,
seeking tts source in that hinterland
still farther to the north. From thc
Great Wall one cnn gaze far over this
unknown land rushing swiftly away
to the north, not days but months by
caravan—the great plain of Mongolia.
For the man gripped by this mystery
of the northland, Kalgan, the border
city between China and Inner Mon
golia—five hours to the north of
Peking as the Chinese train crawls—
offers a convenient point of departure
into Mongolia. Kalgan, lying at the
foot of the pass, marks the end of the
ancient caravan route between Siberia
and China. Here all the wool and
skins from the North are unloaded.
Here is quartered a Chinese garrison
against a Mongolian uprising. Here
the Russian tea trader pitches his
blue tent. From here go the Russian
overland mails. Here also are reload

the pass, hut for dust it might he the
desert itself. Small Chinese shops
crowding the main street, worn into
incredible ruts hv generations of cart
wheels, complete the suffocation—that
is, if the wayfarer he abroad in July.
Kalgnn offers no inns and the foreign
er must beg friends among the scat
tering missionaries or claim the hos
pitality of the Rritish-American tobac
co “mess.” Rut roof-trees are wide
and high in those far corners, and the
hospitality is of a heart-warming
quality, such as lingers In the memory
with a rare deliciousness.
You may ride into Mongolia as a
free lance on horseback if you are not
a pampered child of civilization. But |
if you have degenerated through the
complexities of life under a roof—
unable to live on strings of oatmeal,
cheese and meat, and* unwilling to
sleep in a Mongol tent—you must be
consigned to a caravan or a litter.
Our equipages were least picturesque
of all the choices—a small caravan of
Peking carts drawn not by camels,
which are among the possibilities, but
by horses and mules with a donkey
thrown in on the side for good meas
ure. The carts, larger than the usual
blue Peking carts and padded with j
sacks ot grain and “rutnos” of bedding i
covered with heavy mats, had been I
drawn up within the mud walls of tin1 j

On the Road tc Urga.
We are out of the city now on that
white road which crosses the plain for
30 days to Urga and for 60 days to
Irkutsk—in dry months a howlder
strewn highway, in rainy months the
bed ol a torrent which rushes down
between the bluffs, carrying men and
luckless caravans before it. The as
cent is gradual, almost imperceptible.
Mud villages cling limpet-wise to the
bluffs, the doors leading into only bur
rows in the hillside. It is a ’ of desert
coloring as is the desert sun.white hot.
But there is a charm in that flickering
monotonous road, like the charm of a
peasant melody, and the call of the
trail is in the air—“over the world and
under the world.”
At “tiffin” we came upon one of those
charming little "genres” to be seen of
ten on Eastern roadways. In the scene
were an inn, mud-walled, and a court,
also mud-walled, the entrance shaded
by a wide-spreading plane tree. From
the lower branches of the plane tree
hung a bird-cage; beneath it, carters
and coolies and hawkers of thrushes,
peddlers and camel-drivers sprawled
or lounged or squatted and smoked,
the blue of Chinese garments lying
exquisitely cool against the bronze of
Chinese skins in the chiaroscuro of
shadow sharply demarked from the
glare of the road. It stirred a strange
emotion in me; perhaps an early race
memory, an ancient nostalgia for this
first home of the human race. But
there was no water for our beasts, and
we must travel two li farther—two
thirds of an English mile. There, in
the shadow of a doorway, we ate our
first trail tiffin surrounded by half
clothed men and not in the least
clothed children, who followed us en

the road led, striking suddenly a trail
that emerged onto a small plateau.
The sheer thrill of that little plateau,

Bethlehem village. The mellow after

pool—the whole a study in quietude.
And beyond, rushing swiftly away to
the North, our Promised Land, the
great Mongolian plain.
To the Top of the World.
The ascent of the next morning was
delayed by the appearance of a cara
van of two-wheeled ox-carts piled with
wool, there where the pass notched
the sky. But it was worth the de

The top of the world! Beyond a
vision of sky and plain, magnificent
open country rushing away gloriously
to the horizon and beyond. That is
the feel of Mongolia—beyond; vast,
silent beyond. Something of desert
beauty lay in its unbroken spaces,
peace and healing and desert inscrut
ability. It was of the desert and yet
if was not desert. Its tawny mono
chrome was tinged with green, soft
ened by short, sparse grass through
which a summer wind rustled, invit
ing one to pleasant wanderings.
The Tent Dwellers.
AA’e were now well up in fresh, un
trammelcd land. There were no fields,
no houses, no villages, only an occa
sional encampment of black Mongol
tents wilh its guard of dogs. True
nomad’s land.
The black Mongol tents are made of
layers of felt stretched on a collapsi
ble wicket of wood about four feet
high, from which spokes of wood ex
tend to meet above at the top, the
whole corded with stout ropes. There
are no windows and the entrance con
sists of one low door. Against the
walls of the tent stand bright chests
of clothing, brass cooking vessels,
rows of cheeses, a barrel of intoxi
cant made from sour milk, and a small
Buddhist shrine. Felt and fur rugs
cover the earth floor and the low dais
at the back which adds a Turkish look.
On a center brazier tea simmers from
morning till night, tea dcunk copious
ly with butter and salt and a handful
of millet. The whole Is overhung with
an indescribable odor, Siberian but
more so; skins, cheese, smoke, horses,
dogs, sheep, cows, tobacco, sour milk,
incense to the gods and unwashed hu
manity, a combination into which the
odors of Cairo might be carried as a
The Mongol mother prepares the
family meal in a pot on the brazier or
sews cloth shoes with a long needle.
In one of the tents a wedding was in
prospect—a wedding which consists of
the bridegroom’s dashing up with a
group of friends on the swiftest horses
obtainable and carrying off the bride
before dawn—and in the corner of the
tent sat a Chinese silversmith ham
mering out the barbarically beautiful
headdress that forms every bride’s
dowry. One Mongol woman pointed
out to me three beads in her dowry
which she said cost a horse each. The
men also have an inside occupation—
smoking and taking snuff. One tent
suffices for a family, unless it be a rich
one, and on cold nights it shelters all
the calves and lambs, “little brothers
nf tViQ flfllrl *’
The Mongol Is darker In color than
his Chinese neighbor, high-cheeked,
squat, weather-beaten, almost protec
tive In coloring. Rarely, If ever, on a
Mongol face Is seen that fine Intelli
gence which stamps the Chinese; the
fact that he has produced no arts, no
crafts, that he Is a worker In no me
dium, Is writ large in the crudity of his
expression. As a Buddhist, he refus
es to till the soil lest he take life—kill
a beetle, for Instance. Sheep he may
kill, however, since that may be accom
plished without Buddha's cognizance,
back of the tent. Flocks have another
advantage, too, over fields; flocks he
may carry with him. And the Mongol
knows no shades of a prison house!
Give a Mongol a sheep and a horse
and he will feed, clothe, house himself
and roam the plain. Add a cow and
he can get drunk. Life has nothing
more to offer.

Business Acumen.
A grocer in the outlying districts of
this city was sorely perplexed, as he had
been unable to sell a large quantity of
mops, for which he asked 20 cents apiece.
Finally in desperation he told one of his
clerks to get rid of them at any price.
The youth immediately printed the
words fFree Today” on a sign and hung
the sign on a mop, which he piaoed juat
outside the door of the grocery. Shortly
after doing so, one customer inquired of
the youth how she could obtain a mop
“Why,” he said, “today we are selling
a pound of 40 cent coffee for 60 cents and
giving the mop with the purchase.
“Isn’t that nice?” the customer said.

A Dead Stomach
Of What Use It It?
Thousands? yes hundreds of thousands
of people throughout America are taking
the slow death treatment daily.
They are murdering their own stomach,
the best friend they have, and in their
sublime ignorance they think they are
putting aside the laws of nature.
This is no sensational statement, it is a
startling fact, the truth of which any
honorable physician will not deny.
These thousands of people are swallow
ing daily huge quantities of pepsin and
other strong digesters, made especially to
digest the food in the stomach without
any aid at all from the digestive mem
brane of the stomach.
Mi-o-na stomach tablets relieve dis
tresed stomach in five minutes; they do
more. Taken regularly for a few weeks
they build up the run down stomach and
make it strong enough to digest its own
food. Then indigestion, belching, sour
stomach and headache will go.
Mi-o-na stomach tablets are sold by
druggists everywhere and by A. A. Howes
ft Co., who guarantee them.

Mike’s shouting:
“They’re coming! They’re coming!’’
“Who’s coming?’’ shouted Pat.
“The Germans,” replies Mike.
“How many are there?”
“About fifty thousand.”
“Begorra,” shouts Pat, jumping up and
grabbing his rifle, "our fortune’s ma'de.”
