TWO wd THREE Putting thsisMOeeOwrmtli &BUGS BAERfc COAL. (Prom the New Child's Book of Knowledge.) There arc two kinds of coal. The kind you want and the kind the dealer hasn't got Coal is a vegetarian product controlled by cannibaK Il is the remains of former beautiful forests Forests are Naturr's gift to man. -, Coal is Nature's gift to the middleman. Coal is known as black diamonds If coal gels much dearer, diamonds will be called white coal. It is dug out 01 the earth by miners with large manicuring sets. The place where they get coal is called a coal pocket. After the coal is mined, papa digs down inlo his coal pocket. The miners are going on a strike soon which will make papa laugh like an oat salesman in Detroit. Miners always strike in the winter time just when the straw hat makers are going back to work. A ton of coal costs $1.2.00. Thi:. is because the dollar is growing smaller. So is the ton. Everything is shrinking like a woolen sock in an army laundry. The restaurants give you one oyster on six half-shells. The man who asks for two lumps of sugar gets the second lump on his bean. Two fingers of best prune-turpentinc whisky costs 60 cents a copy with an added expense of six bills for a stomach pump. You can get good liquor on a physician's prescription, but most doctors are selfish You-will understand this better when you get older. Coal is ?hat makes the steam radiator shake so merrily. Some times il shakes because it's shivering. The janitor takes a coallul of shovel and tickles the furnace with it. Then the steam starts limpinp through the radiator and all the roactns crawl out into the backyard to get warm. There is only one man who has a softer job than a janitor, and that is a war correspondent with an army of con scientious objectors. When coal is lighted it burns very rapidly, but in order to save you money the dealer doesn't give you that kind. He makes it up with nice pieces of slate just like the kind you write on with soap stone pencils A ton like that will last many winters. Many winters, ?children. The coal situation is a tonic that will prow white hair overnight. I Every time papa thinks about it, he cuts out a new regiment of paper I dolls. That is all about coal, children. Papa will turn over the pages while you look at the pretty pictures. And remember that all home work must be done in rexl ink.??

BOOSTS BUDDY ENSOR FOR LOFTUS HONORS George Daley, the New York World expert, pens the fallowing: That old saying of the turf, "A good horse makes a good rider." work? both ways. Buddy Knior. the Baltimore boy, proved it at the Krnpire City track, near Yonkcrs. yesterday? aa Jimmy Rutwell and Clarence Kummer have Ixen proving it more or lesa alnce tht meeting began. Theae three boys won two racea each, and in three cases at least, poe aibly four, the rider had as much, if not mor*?, to do with winning than the horse. Almost any Jockey except Bnsor would have been beaten on Pickwick in the Bedford selling stakes when .he horse began to sprawl half way down the stretrh after making up much ground from a slow beginning. But this clever rider held him together, as only a t^ie horseman nn, and brought him along to win rather handily. Th*? boy also showed skill in the dandling of Whimsy in the laat * vent. This lior-e haa l-*?en floundei i*,g around and flopping badly with other jock*?ys in racemi nut?, but little Kn sor took h i tn to the front under a light but steady-ng hold and nursetf him along to arel, good purpose that he won virtually by himself. IROOUOIS REORGANIZE FOR COMING SEASON The ?ro'?uois A.

It ts doubtful whether they can put out an eleven to equal those of '16 or '17. but Man ager Hutchinson will make every effort to whip the new material into shape. The prospects for the -teaaketball season, however, look very bright. Inasmuch as all the regulars of the team of IM*., which lost but or.e game, are back and their physical condition much improved by army training. The club will miss Bosley. star center and pitcher, who waa killed in action while serving with th? Second Division, and it will be a hard proposition to find a man to fill his place in either baseball or foot ball.
