J las' Bible reading out of
fashion ? Ihe casual answer
would probably he in the affirma
tive. A distinguished outsider,
however, has observed America
and her ways, and come to a dif
ferent conclusion.
President Alessandri of Chile,
in the interests of his office, has
endeavored to fix upon the secret
of the United States’ greatness
that he may adopt it for his own
nation. “I may tell you." he said
to an American friend, "that the
only hook 1 have in mv bed
chamber is the Bible. I read it
every day and try to make it mv
guide. Don’t understand that I
am a Protestant, for I am not.
Neither am I a Catholic. But 1
believe 1 am a true Christian.
And for this reason 1 believe that
1 will succeed in mv reform pro
gram. 1 believe that your coun
try is threat, not because you are
a great business people, and or
ganize great business enterprises,
hut you are able to succeed in
these things because you arc a
Bihle-reading people. I want Chile
to follow your example in this
matter that we also may be truly
great.”
Whether this judgment be a
fair one or not, it should set
Americans to thinking. It if
surely true that whatever lasting
success great organizations any
where have attained or will at
tain. must be based upon the solid
principles which the Bible ♦has
been the first to propound.
P*fNBPK OF THE RAZORBACK
The country is being over-run
with poisonous snakes, the gov
ernment biological survey and
forestry service informs us. and
the same governmental authori
ties advise that the condition i
attributable to the passing of the
razorback hog.
In days of yore jhc razorback
might roam as they listed, and
there were few fences to keep
them out of forest glades and pas
ture lands. The habitats of the
were their abode, and it
was a matter of scientific interest
to see one of the frequent battles
they would stage.
The problem was long in dis
pute as to why the razorback was
almost always the victor. Then
it was observed that although the
rattler struck with all his tang's
poison, the tough hide aiul layer
of fat lying right under it rend
ered his opponent immune. There
is no circulation in the fat. and
the poison was not distributed.
Now, however, with most far
mers preferring Poland Chinas or
other breeds to razorbacks, and 1
with the increase of fences in the j
country, the rattlers are increas

must be in the case of the nerves j
and physical body of human be
ings a very generous one. The j
common run of mankind seems to|

might imagine.
We naturally associate physi
cal stamnia and endurance with
primitive man. We like to think
of the aborigine as sleeping on
the haie ground with nothing but
his war paint to cover him; a

head he could run one hundred
miles a day. snatching his food

We haven't much exact infor-'

■the aborigine. But a little obser-j
vation 'of what modern man or !
woman can do may lead to the re-j
flection that for sheer energy and

cue his own offspring from the
j pugnacious gestures of the utigi.-

ever go through as composite a

LETTER TO EDITOR

Hiss Claude SajH Annapolis Water
( om pa in Should Re Font rolled And
.Han.tKed By “The Public Who Own
II.”
To the Editor of the Fovning CajHtal
Is public ownership of the Annapo
lis Water Company going to te proven
a failure? Tilt Water Company is
now being ihanaged Just as it was
predicted It would be by those who
opposed its being municipalized. It
is publicly owned, but it is not con
trolled and managed by the public who
own it.
Instead of being ruled by the peo
ple who own it, it is under the ar
bitrary rule of a directorate ovei
whose actions they have not the
slightest power or control. This, di
rectorate can elect and stipulate the
amount of the salaries of any num
ber of superintendents, managers
foremen, secretaries, collectors ant
plumbers without a suggestion of con
-.ultinft with the people, the owners
f the \later plant, as to whether it
Is right or wrong to do so. provided
they can secure tlie approval of tht
Mayor and Council of said city. Tht
general public still retains a genera
supervision over the Water Depart
ment and also the riglif to alter or
veto anything that does not suit it
And the Mayor and Council ought not
to ratify the proposal to be submit
ted to it for consideration on the 25th
of this month without first inviting
an expression of public sentiment and
opinion on the advisability or inad
visability of granting the requests
contained therein. %
When the company was privately
owned and operated its directors man
aged its tiuancial afTairs without any
compensation for many long years
Today this little subordinate depart
ment of our City Government is cost
ing us for its management and opera
tion about ten or twelve thousand dol-,-
lars annually, so that. iutie;id >of*-ft r l n Ti
posing an increase of the expenscs.for
its operation we should be trying 'n'
find ways and means to reduce thf
same. I am sorry that I cannot go
more fully Into a discussion o£ the
matter but time and space wilt not
admit of my doing so at this time.
My interest is for the general public
which so often fails to see a thing
of importance until it is too late.'
