DIRECT TRAINS OF AMERICA Railroads Will Operate Pri marily to Provide Car goes for Ships. Railroads east of Chicago toon wilt be operated virtually by wire leas telegraph from' mid-At Ian tic Thla ia because? One thousand ships a week are aoon to be loaded at Atlantic ports. It's America's answer to the twice-renewed German drive. The greatest possible number of troops and supplies are to be rushed to Europe this summer. The one Job of the railroads? to which every other demand must a*ive way?is the delivery at sea board of men, munitions, foodstuffs and supplies to keep all vessels moving: without delay. Last year's car shortage will be as nothing to that which all non war industries will soon face. To, provide vessels to maintain this stupendous movement of men and materials abroad, Britain, France, Italy and America are com bining all their available tonnage. To avoid congestion at seaboard and to insure that thei right cargo is at the right pier at the right time. American railroads east of Chicago virtually will be operated by wirelesf?. Boats returning from Europe do not announce their sailing??.. Their whereabouts and approximate time *>f docking is not known until with in 48 hours of arrival, when It Is wirelessed in. In order that docks may not be cluttered with supplies, congesting movement and delaying loading, materials will move to ports only as needed, and each shipment will h? made to a definite pier of a definite port, to be loaded on a spe cific vessel of a certain tonnage. For instance. "Bertha B" wirelesses on Wednesday that she will he in Friday morning. Shippin-r officials hy wireless assign "Bertha B" to dock at a certain pier, scheduled to op clear at her time of arrival. They determine this veswel * should carry .*,..*_> tons of shrapnel to a French pa?!

Miss Farrar holds as an artist a truly unique position. She is of neither the purely lyric nor heroic type, but falls between the two. She seems to bear particularly apt ex pression of the artistic impulse of our time as it is found in opera and in song. She is far from being limited In her art to the ultra-modern types of opera and song. She is among the few alngers of todey who can do justice to the suave melodies of Mozart and the other masters of the classic period, who, taking the long melodic line employed by them, build a structure of perfect archi tecture. The singing of a Mozait air is a final test of the art of a singer. There I? no emotional tur bulence with which to conceal de fects of method. Whether Miss Farrar sing? an aria by Handel or LulII, a Chanson or Gretry, a song filled with the romantic outpour ing of Schubert or Schumann, or the expression of ultra-modernity as found in Richard Straus?, her art Is always sufficient.

In search of the spectacular or sensational, so that when one finds little of practical value it Is not to be wondered at. One thing, however, that is well worth studying in the "Show of Wonders." which comes to Poli'? to night for a week's stay, ia the man ner In which colors are handled. It seem? trite to describe it as a riot of color but nevertheless it is exactly that. They ?re Bakst ?nd Poiret and Fu luriat and everything wonderful and above all, vivid, with a decided pre dilection toward polka dot and geo metric figures. Nobody could be expected to take seriously the bathing costumes and pajamas of a winter garden chorus, plaited ruffle of lace. This same chorus ?rears a really charming night robe consisting of fleeh color aatin Jacket, hip length edged with a plait ed ruffle of lace. Regulation pajamas being entirely too domestlcsted, so to speak, for the winter garden, they are abbreviated in every possible di rection and do not resemble the gar ment for which they are named, be ing much more suggestive of Annette Kellerma? swimming suits. This Is also true of the bathing cos tumes concealed by flowing scarf? of wonderful color and design. But word of praise must be given the polka dotted materials, some show ing huge and small dots in many colora fa true poker dot ? and others a broken dot. not unlike a target. Pink and roee are very prominent, an entire chorus being dressed in Cherult ro?e taffeta gowns, with cu riously cut neck, square in front and rolling Into a high back collar.

Church of Jesus Ch:i?t of Latter-da** Salats; Salt Lake City. Utah. Payment of tithes w?a required un- ? der the Law of Mose?. Indeed, the prominence given to thi? renuirement in the Mosaic code has led to the in correct assumption that tithe-paying had its beginning in an Israelitisa statute. Tithing is older than Israel. Abraham paid a tenth part of his gains to Melchizedek. who was king of Sslem and priest of the Most High God (Gen. 11:20 and Heb. 7 1-si; and Jacob made a covenant to devote to the Lord's service a tenth of all that would come into his hands. (Gen. ? :_.> Following the deve'.opment of the children of Israel into a theocratic na tion, the practice of paying tithes in kind became one of the feature? by which they, the worshipper? of Jeho vah, were dietinguiched from all other peoples. The requirement was ex plicit and its application general, to rich and poor alike. Thus we tcad "AND AU. THE TITHE OF THE LAND. WHETHER OF THE SEED OF THE LAND. OR OF THE FRUIT OF THE TREE. IS THE LORD'S: ?* IS HOLY UNTO THE LORD. . . . AND CONCERNING THE TITHE OF THE HERD, OR OF THE FLOCK. E\*_? OF WHAT SOEVER PASSETH UNDER THE ROD. THE TENTH SHALL BE HOLY UNTO THE LORD." iLev. ??3?, *_) As long as the people faithfully complied with the law of the tithe they prospered: and when they failed the land was no longer sanctified to their good. Heiekiah (aee 2 Chron. "J '?1? and Nehemiah (Neh. 13:10.1:; ? reproved the people for their negli gence in the matter and awakened them to the Jeopardy that threatened: and. later. Malachi voiced the word of Jehovah In ?tern rebuke, forceful admonition, and encouraging promise, relative to the payment of the Lord's tenth: "WILL A MAN ROB GOD? ??? YE HAVE ROBBED ME. BUT TE SAY. WHEREIN HAVE WE ROB BED THEE* IN TITHES AND OF FERINGS. YE ARE CURSED WITH A CURSE: FOR YE HAVE ROBBED ME. EVEN THIS WHOLE NATION. BRING YE ALL THE TITHES INTO THE STOREHOUSE. THAT THERE MAY BE MEAT IN MINE HOUSE, AND PROVE ME NOW HEREWITH. 8?G?? THE LORD OF HOSTS. IF I WILL NOT OPEN YOU THE WINDOWS OF HEAVEN. AND POUR YOU OUT A BLESS ING. THAT THERE SHALL NOT BE ROOM ENOUGH TO RECEIVE IT.?? (Mai. J:8-10.) At the time of our Lord's personal ' ministry the law had been supple mented by Innumerable rule?, com prising unauthorized exactions, often based upon mere trivialities. Christ approved the tithe, but made (?Jain tlfe fact that other duties were none the less imperative. (See Matt. 8:23.) During recent years great Interest haa been manifest in the matter of the tithe, among theologians, minis ter? and intelligent layajien: ?nd the re-e?tsh!].?hment of tithe-paying aa a religious duty haa been atrongly ad vocated. It is important to know that the Church of Jesu?
