Fitch began his news paper career as a reporter at &6 a week, but more recently a iiterateur at many times $50 a week. The last sentences of nis observations, which are printed below, probably ex plain why Mr. Fitch gave up editing for contributing. "An editor is a tired, nervous man who decides what shall go into a newspaper and explains why it got in afterward. "The editor works at an an- j tique desk entirely surrounded j by old papers and noise, and I j produces the results which en able the business manager to sit in a room fitted with mahog any furniture and Persian rugs j and to respond to toasts at great banquets in solemn state and a dress suit. "It is the editor's duty to feel the pulse of the world and to hold the stethescope to busi ness; to assist at the birth of history, to translate the pres ent, refute the past and arrange the future; to illuminate ignor ance, reward merit, put the spotlight on villiany and the pul motor on reform ; to make statesmen and dessicate dema gogues, to elect presidents, crown heroes and secure bigger salaries for baseball pitchers; to act as an alarm clock for public opinion, as an elevator for political candidates and as a goat for every man who says something in a careless mo ment and who repents too late by declaring that he was mis quoted ; to enbalm truth, anni hilate error, to bring the nat ional tear for great misfortune and the national laugh at great foolishness. "An editor can lower a tar iff, head off wars, harness the wrath of the whole people and raise a million dollars for food sufferers. And some editors are so powerful that they can r'-rse their own salaries ?10 a v-oek. "Editors are seldom praised, but they do not mind that. Fdr'tors do not often save any money and if thy do, the busi ness office feels as cheap about it as if it had paid too much for printer's ink." ;V Si "Vi '7 V &Tf r-3 fits w, .rj f&mzzz The Economy N Failures When a "Big and Cheap" can of baking powder is offered you LOOK OUT.

I BEST BY TEST The World's Greatest Baking Powder FEARED BAD LUCK PERIODS Aztecs Believed That Evil Fates Ruled World During the Last Five Days of Year. Detecting Remade Milk. Because of the increased use of re made milk, manufactured from pow dered or condensed milk and sweet cream butter, it baa become necessary for chemists to devise some test 'that will indicate its presence in milk prod ucts. If the curd from remade milk Is dissolved in sodium hydroxide, it hows a characteristic yellow color, after standing, while natural products, or products containing only a small percentage of remade milk, do not show x this color. As little as 10 per . cent of remade milk can be detected by this test when carefully made. .Popular Mechanics Magazine. MICKIE SAYS The Aztec calendar consisted of a year of 18 months of 20 days each, and a closing period of five days, into which it was believed all the bad luck of the year was crowded. No one started upon a Journey during these five days, for fear some misfortune would befall him ; no woodcutter ven tured into the forest to hew wood during this period, lest wild beasts should devour him ; the houses were left unswept ; the housewives made no pottery vessels; children so un fortunate as to be born on one of these five days were by that very fact predestined to misfortune for the rest of their lives. The next, and among the Aztecs the only time period higher than the year, was the- xihultlmolpia, or cycle of 52 years. It was held that at the close of one of these periods would some day come the destruction of the world. On the last night of the xihuiU molpia fires were extinguished on the hearths, and the inhabitants of Tenochtitlah (City of Mexico) moved out of the city and took up positions on the surrounding hills, waiting feverishly either for the destruction of the world or, in the event of sun rise, the dawn of another xihultlmol pia. Once the sun had arisen, how ever, great were the rejoicings. Fires were rekindled and the crisis was oyer for another 52 years. and cause their wives to laugh so sud denly that they pull a piece of meat into the trachea and choke to death have a grave responsibility. Of course, the habitual joker who gets a fresh stock every week runs no such risks. His wife is Immune to laughter at his "funny cracks," and stands in no dan ger. But fellows ' who are pleasant only -once in a long time, and who "pull a joke" perhaps twice in a lifetime, should time their efforts so that their wives have not a mouthful of meat handy to pull into their windpipes. For that is not what windpipes are for, and they resent Intrusion of solids. Exchange. Joke on Famous Composer. A certain newly rich person with more money than culture called on M. Massenet and said that he had seen liis photograpn Til a paper ana naa read that he was "a clever pianist." Would M. Massenet play a few pieces at a little party? He would be well paid of course ! The world-famous musician was greatly amused. "Certainly I" he re plied. "What Eighty "Thursday." "Thursday 2 What a pity I I am en gaged on Thursday. But I can give the address of a friend an excellent pianist, who can play all the modern dances beautifully." So saying, Massenet gave the un fortunate newly rich the address of Saint-Saens r Obviously the victim of Massenet's- Joke had never heard of Saint-Saens, for he- called on the dis tinguished composer and was promptly kicked out. Saint-Saens brooded over the insult for some hours before he saw the- Joke. NONE CAN EXPLAIN "AURORA F NAw GOT KAORE VAOV4EM THAU 040VJ VJWT t& DO vacm. Give vr -o -cvv saa.vv "OOM AWAN '.

The aurora borealis (or northern lights) ; is .occasionally seen In the north temperate zone and frequently In the polar regions. It is said to be due to the passage of electricity through the rarefied air of the arctic zone. The name "aurora borealis" was first used by Cassendi, who. In 1621, observed one in France, and wrote a description of it. The "au rora" is periodic in Its manifestations, the finest displays being at Intervals of 60 years, and less marked ones at Intervals of 10 or 11 years. It Is also asserted that these greater and lesser displays correspond with the increase and decrease of spots on the sun. ' The phenomenon is generally manifested in the following way : A dim light appears on the horizon shortly after twilight, and gradually assumes the shape of an arch, having a pale yellow color, with its concave side turned earthward. From this arch streams of light shoot forth, passing from yellow to green and then to brilliant violet. The name aurora australis (or southern lights) is ap plied to a similar phenomenon visible in the vicinity of the South pole. j When Joking Is Dangerous. Husbands should be careful how they spring jokes at the table. And wives should be alert on guard against the consequences of a surprise that amounts to a shock In certain cases such as that at New York re cently, for instance. iM wfaciaML off tetmtat-ffit. tMa PRE WAR PRICES AT THIS STORE YOU may not have stopped to compare our present prices witk those of pre-war days.
