An effort Is being made In New Or leans to restore the old historic spots around the city. With the restoration of the old Place d'Armes, the rehabili tation of the Cabildo and the Pontalba apartments which surround it, and the preservation of all as an artistic cen ter for the old French and Spanish quarter, an effort is being made to re store and preserve the landing place of Bienville, where he first set foot on the high land in 1720, at the place he was destined to convert into NouvelleT Orleans. This landing place, which lies on the river directly facing the Place d'Armes, which is now Jackson square, is covered with the switch tracks of the Southern Pacific and public Belt railroads, and with a part of the large steel warehouse belonging to the board of commissioners.of the port of New Orleans. Supporters of the Louisiana State museum have appealed to the mayor and the various civic organizations to have these sheds and railroad tracks removed at once, inasmuch as the land, clear from the Cabildo to the river itself, was expropriated some time ago to be put in historical and artistic reserve. As all the water front of New Orleans and the east bank of the river belongs to the city and state forever, the completion of the artistic center is sure of accom plishment. ACCEPTED MANDATE OF FAT Young English Aoldier Proved Him self Worthy When Called to Posi tion of Responsibility. When Rudyard Kipling's "The Man Who Would Be King" was published it was regarded as an excursion into the improbable, if not the impossible. It was the Anglo-Saxon imagination accepted by the colorful Hindustani civilization. But the sober chronicles of the war have outdone Kipling. Thorneycroft, a twenty-two-yearol British trooper, found himself stranded in Turkey after Townshend's ill-fated offensive. Nothing daunted, he accepted his pre dicament as a mandatory of Fate. He proceeded to rule over a territory Hn taining 6(Aillages and 60,000 people, and he ruled them until relieved by the martial law brought by Allenby's troops. The son of a hotel keeper of Bristol, he proved at the test that he was of imperial fiber. Truth is Stranger than fiction. It always "has been and always will be, with Tommy Atkins or his first cousin, the doughboy, as protagonist. Each possesses the comic spirit that means adaptability, no matter what the emer getrcy. Marshal offre a Catalonian. Possibly with more reason than the seven claimants to the birthplace of Homer, Catalonia makes out a good case for asserting that Marshal Joffre belongs to her by right of birth. The great estopper of the German first of fensive is a native of Perpignan, where the Catalonian race predom inated in past ages and where today are found many families which still retain Catalonian customs and lan guage. Leading business firms of Catalonia, seeking to Establish a tangi ble claim, have appointed a commit tee which is to proceed to Paris and present a sword to the great warrior, unless he fulfill a promise made at the peace conference that he will visit Catalonia, in which case the presenta tion will be made at Barcelona. This, of course, wquld be the occasion of a great celebration. Mexicans Hold Strange Beliefs. Few countries are richer in strange beliefs than. Mexico, writes Charles Bernard Nordhoff in the Atlantic Monthly. There the witches assume the eyes of cats and flit through the night on vampire's wings. A brisk business is done in love potions'and candle flames still point the way to buried treasure. The Mexican inherits his cruelty to domestic beasts from both the Spaniard and the Indian, and his superstitions may be traced to the same double source. Eccentricity is not understood in Mexico. The native is a lover of for mality, and one is judged largely by external things. Each man dresses according to his station, and it is un thinkable that a well-to-do man should wear a straw sombrero or carry a serape the peons would be the first to jeer at him. Pafrfstakfng Work. A French critic who complained of the hasty composition and~lack of fine writing among his compatriots drew from M. Pierre^ Louys, the author of "La Femme et Ie Pantint" a pained and precise denial of the charge. M. Louys, who has not published anytsjog in.several years, says that he has been diligently occupied on a work which he rewrites and corrects a hundred times to each page. This and other works which he has not yet considered worthy .of publication have accumu lated until he has on hand more than 200 pounds of manuscript/ The Croix de Guerre. 1K& The croix de guerre*, corresponding, to the military cross of Britain and the iron cross of Germany, will be notice able henceforth on the breasts of Frenchmen, civilian as well as military, who have been distinguished by being mentioned in the dispatches. It is made of Florentine bronze, about an Inch and a half in diameter,' with crossed swords between the arms. Plymouth Rock Described Plymouth rock is the most famous rock in the new world. Historians eager to make a sensation have claimed that there is no reliable evi dence that the pilgrims, either on their voyage of exploration or after the coming of the Mayflower from Pro vincetown, stepped upon the rock from their boats, thus touching here for the first time upon the site where their settlement was to grow. Yet the evidence for the authentici ty of the tradition is strong enough to warrant our believing it^ When the women and children came, it was not known where the first foot touched the ground. But when the pilgrim ex plorers landed at Clark's island there is not much doubt that they stepped upon the historic rock. No actual con temporary record of this was set down in black and white, but in their later years some of the explorers de scribed to Elder Faunce the exact particulars of that landing as they re membered them. And he, when an old man himself, sat by the rock and re peated this story, identifying the rock as the first Plymouth ground trodden by their feet. There is other con firmatory evidence so that it seems al together probable that the tradition is true. It cannot, indeed, be absolutely proved. But it is sufficiently satis factory to all except those few who prefer to doubt everything. Just before the revolution Plymouth was growing so rapidly about the waterfront that it seemed probable* that before many years the rock would be covered by a wharf. This roused the patriotic sentiment of the town's people ai|d it was decided to remove the great boulder to a place where commerce could not desecrate- it. But in trying to raise it the rock was split and the upper portion, being mare highly regarded, was solemnly taken to the town square, where it helped to arouse fervor in the gatherings of loyal Americans who were beginning to fret over obnoxious laws imposed by England. Here it remained for 60 years and then, on the fourth of July, it was again removed, this time, to a prominent place in front of Plymouth hall. Here it stayed for 46 years longer and it was then taken back to its rightful position, securely fastened to the lower portion, which had never been removed, and later covered with a granite canopy. Felicia Hemans, in her English home, knew about Plymouth rock when she wrote her famous poem. "She took it for granted that the rock had many neighbors when she wrote the familiar line, "On a stern and rock bound t*oast. It is always hazardous to write about scenes that one "has never viewed and Mrs. Hemans drew a good deal on her imagination when she pictured Plymouth as "rock- bound.'* The pilgrims would have had to row a long distance to have found another rock upon which "the break ing waves dashed high." It is sometimes believed that the pilgrims named their town in honor of the English city where they last saw their native land. As a matter of fact they did not name the place. Captain John Smith had already done that, and the pilgrims, finding the name, Plymouth, on his map, retained it. Boston Post. Seven of Tom Jefferson's Maxims. "Better keep together as we are, haul off from Europe as soon as we can and from aE attachments to any portions of it." "Let our affairs be disentangled from those of all other nations, ex cept as to commerce "I am for free commerce with all nations, political connection with none." "I am not for linking ourselves by new treaties with Europe." "It ought to be the very first .object of our pursuits to have nothing to do with European interests and politics." "I sincerely join you in abjuring all political connection with every for eign power, and though I cordially wish well to the progress of liberty of all nations and would forever give it the weight of our countenance, yet they are not to be touched without contamination from their other bad principles." "Determined as we are to avoid, if possible, wasting the energy of our peoDle in war and destruction, we shall avoid implicating ourselves with the powers of Europe, even in sup port of principles which we mean to pursue. They have so many interests different from ours that we must avoid being entangled with them.'L Our Indian Population. I^isv^ffmm- ._ VHE PRINCETON UN HIM: THURSDAY, JANUARY 1, 1920 A Cato Sells, commissioner of Indian affairs, in his annual report submitted to the secretary of the interior, com putes the population of pure blood In dians in the country at 232,196 and of the five civilized tribes, covering freed men and inter-married with whites, 101,506, making a total of 323,702.

Yes, Harry Pratt,,for many years a familiar figure to the travelers, has about decided to combat the high cost of living by starting a small stock farm. He has one cow, one calf, and a dog and is looking for a good bargain in a second hand eream separator, as he says he intends to be kept quite busy deliver ing milk to his customers. He says hell sell two cents below his competi tors, but is very reticent about guar anteeing the quality. From his con versation (after supplying about ten customers) he still gives one the im pression that his farm would be a fine place to go for a good cream cake. There's a reasonthe cream separa tor.

The war period, during which the production of automobiles was curtailed, has caused a shortage of cars which the 1919 output has failed to supply 2. During the entire season of 1919 Ford car purchas- ers waited one to four months for their cars. 3. On November 1st, 1919, the Ford Motor Company had 212,204 unfilled car orders on hand. 4. The present demand for Ford cars in Southern states, which must be supplied, prevents Northwest dealers from storing cars for spring delivery. Delayed action in purchasing your Ford car mean DISAPPOINTMENT. I believe the public should be informed of the con- ditions as they have prevailed during the past year, as they now are and as we have every reason to believe they will be this coming season. I will be glad to take your order at once while I am in a position to make immediate delivery.
