When your chin is retreating, you Just nnturnlly haTe got to keep It company. Th Klown Prlnre, who Is heir to what's coming t tho Kaiser, has wired to den. ltetrentskl. late of tho Husslan Army, which was always late, niklng him how he kept his hat on while running. No answer so fur, owing lo tho Klown's genial hublt of wiring collect. However, a cheesograph from the ocean department of the Yoiman Navy shows that those birds aro standing, even If tho army Is running. There Is a spider's web Hying on each boat In the Cheeser's navy. And If that navy ever stops standing, tho spldors will sure spin their webs at hnlf-mast. So far. Kiel bus been a spider's paradise. Outside of meal time, thn only activity flashed has been by tho U boats which cranh(s a IOhlgh Valley Railroad tug off Cape Cod. Cnpe Cod Is the plnco where tho Pilgrims tagged America, making It possible for the Lehigh Valley to have tugboats. Strafing a L. V. tugboat Is bud form, because If tho Kaiser ever gets all the tug hojils squawking at him he will never get any sleep. The tugboat was wearing n lavalllere of four barge nt the time. Tho barges were loaded with anthracite und other t'lirnace Jewelry. It was u glorious victory for the V boat, us the Lehigh Valley tug was (quipped with a very dangerous whistle.

Hut why spill fifty thousand ducats' worth of ammunition on a Job whero throo cents' worth of roach powder will answer? Would you push over the pyramids to crush a cootie when n little dab of one-night corn euro will do the Job? , Still, you can't figure out Hnpshurgian strategy. Thoso birds would uso up a million dollars' worth of shrapnel on n stuffed canary. We don't know who wrote the book of tnctics the Kaiser reads every day before he hops out and publishes nn Imitation of a tender footed nnt on a hot rock. Hut he will never get callouses on his skull from thinking. Great stuff! Merely proves tho old theory that no circus Is com plete without a clown. Mounting Photographs So That They Will Not Curl T HFItK ure V( ry few amateur pho tographers who have not en countered the unpleasantness of pasting photographs ou mounts und have them cuil up, mount und nil. The dry mounting method overcomes I this dltllculty, but ono must have n I hot Iron. However, the dltllculty may I be overcome by the use of rubber I cement, such ns Is UM'd for patching I the Inner tubes of bicycle and uuto- iiiobllo tires. The cement Is applied in a thin, even coat, on the back of the print and the face of the mount. It is al lowed to dry or bccoitie "tacky" before daclng the print on the mount. When the print In laid In place it Is rolled down Just un in ordinary mounting. As thn ciment will slightly discolor the mount. If It Is while. It Is best to cover the entire surface, explains Pop ular Science Monthly; then when the print U la place the uncovered border "A .STREET TRY-ON may be easily cleaned of the cement by rubbing with the finger end. Hoi! It Into a ball and uso tho ball to clean tho edgo near the print. If any of the cement gets on the face of the print It enn bo rubbed off in tho same manner. If the print does not Bttck properly It Ih becauso tho cement was not left long enough before tho print was ap plied to tho mount. Dry tho print well after mounting, no that the sur face of tho mount will not peel off in removing the cement. SOMEWHAT MIXED. "Wife. I met Mr. Wombat to-day and she sent you a inessagn?" "Yes?"

On the Marne by Methods Of Early Frontier Days Red-Skinned Warriors Who Trail Germans To-Day Are the Sons of Men Who Were Our Implacable Enemies in Other Times But All of That Has Been Settled and Uncle Sam's Indian Scouts Arc Doing a Big Share for Liberty and Victory. By Robert Welles Ritchie THK World War has thrown upon the screen some fantastic pictures, brought Into high relief extraordinary contradictions. Turbancd Sikhs from India have been coniradcs-ln-urms of ebony Senegalese from French Africa. Slant-eyed natives of Anum work to keep open Hit communication lines for Hrltlsh Tommies und Koch's pollus. Tahltlans In the far uway South Seas have been called upon to repulse German raiders. And now AiKioho Indians, wearing wrUt watches, play tho part of scouts for Pershing's nrmy In tho great Allied counter attack upon the Solttsons-Hliclms salient. Fighting, these Apaches are, to make the world safer for the red man as well as the white, black and yellow. They are wearing the uniform of n fighting force that once was their Inveterate enemy and warred ugalnst them until their people almost were extinct. Hrlcf mention of Pershing's Apache scouts given them tho place of tho oyes of tho strategists In this new typo of open warfuro that lion been Initiated by Fnch's tremendous thrust. They travel noiselessly through wood copses nnd worm their snake-like way among tho standing grnln far In ad vance of American outposts, spying upon tho movements of tho enemy nnd reporting nnck to their commander. Tho despatch ndds that thn French aro groatly puz'ed by their methods ot warfare as well they might be. It Is conceivable, that none of these Apache warriors l.i letter perfect on tho International aspects of why tho Oreut White Father In Washington decreed war ugalnst tho Germans; nor Is It likely Scout Loco Jim knows all there Is to know about sclf-doter-mimttlon for small nations, Loco Jim und Chicken and "Y 5" nro fighting abroad ut their own behest nnd for the solo reason that Hlg Chief John Perilling, under whom they fought tho .Mexicans u few years ago, is In command of the soldier-men over there. Just how many of the Apache trail ers uro In Franco wo do not know. The. original contingent which crossed tho border In 101G to run down Pancho A' Ilia numbered only twenty; doubt less this nucleun has been recruited to greater strength for tho present transcendent needs. Tho story of tho gathering of Per shing's original twenty Indian scouts Is romantic us the talcs they will tell when they return to their Arizona deserts after tho Grent Peace. Capt. O. P. M. Hazard of tho I'nited States Ilegulars, 10th Cuvulry, wan lich.irgo of Fort Apache.

The till and Its fiustenlngs were ntrength ened to hold tho combined weight of tho user and tbo water with which It Is filled. It Is then covens! with c.UHio canvoM which wan tacked in place with copjior tiucltH and the seams covered with white lead. Tho onnvus was waterproofed with two coats of white lead. The ends of the canvas nro loft of sufficient length to fold over tho edgas of the trunk. This aolda the possibility ot water f ig- v. , hit jm tnln Itcsorvntlon of Kastern Arizona, when President Wilson ordered Per shing to bring in Villa, dead or alive. Capt. Hazard hail lived among tho Apaches for years and possessed their implicit conlldencc. Seeing the value of good trailers and soouts for uso in tbo mountain wilderness of Chihuahua, Cupt. Haz ard wired to Pershing to ask If he wanted some Apache scouts to as sist him In thrusting his columns Into Mexico. Upon receiving an en thusiastic artlnnatlvn from tho bead of the punltlvo expedition, Cant. Haz nrd went to his Apacho friends and put tho proposition up to them: Dl 1 they want to work for the Govcrr mcnt ns good soldiers and wear the soldier uniform?
