REPRESENTATIVE JAMES R. MANN DIES SUDDENLY; SHIP BILL CERTAIN TO PASS SENATE, SAYS JONES Thankful, and Healthful. Clemenceau Saw Much; Tuhank Hamen Nothing. Be Careful, Henry Fly. ?By ARTHIR BRISBANE? <Copyrl?ht. lit:.) THE REALLY thankful man feels better today?if he did not eat too much. Too many still celebrate like Congo savages, when they kill a hippo potamus. They eat, eat and eat the decaying carcass, never leav ing it, lying down to sleep beside It, until it is gone. ' Thankfulness is a Doctor Coue ?f the mind. It makes you feel better and better in every way. It expands and cheers, dlssatis ' (action contracts ajid depresses. TJUNYAN tells you to observe the thankful, cheerful hen, lifting up her head to thank Ood ?very time she takes a drink of water. He did not know that kens can swallow water only with their heads In the air, but his Idea was sound. Thankful ness. in Itself, is cause for thankfulness. TklSPATCHES from Chicago to outside cities say "Clem enceau sees Chicago slaughter houses and art collections." He has Imagination, and saw more than that He saw a future great inland seaport. He saw Chicago's crowded docks con nected by canal eastward and through the Mississippi river with all the oceans and nations i ?t the world. He saw the world's flyin? fleets settling down from the ?ky or the surface of Lake Michigan, a vast spread of water, with room for all. He ?aw a city spreading one hun dred miles along the shores of the lake, Chicago growing to Milwaukee. and Milwaukee growing as far as Chicago. He saw a future city of ten millions and then twenty mil lions, talking to all the world through the air, trading with all the world, and flying to all parts of the earth, through the air. Clemenceau will return from Chicago to France, still con vinced, as he should be, that France is the greatest, most .important thing on earth--but 1 realizing that there are OTHER things. ?N 'The Valley of the Kings" on the site of ancient Thebes, "ear Luxor, British scientists have unearthed a royal tomb, containing the magnificent jew eled throne of Tuhank Hamen. Upon that throne the ancient ruler of Egypt, included among the "heretic kings," sat more than 3,000 years ago. He could not dream of the World that was to be, at the opening of his tomb, with its ITorgeous decorations and precious papyri. Just so little idea have we of the world that is to come, when we shall all be as dead as Tuhank Hamen?a world of flying men, living on a planet . In communication with other planets, learning from them, as Japan, a few years ago, was learning from the west. Least of all can we imagine this earth free from war, pov erty, disease and injustice. But so it will be. Tuhank Hamen would have laughed had wise men predicted an age without ?laves, torture, invasion, or one man government. VOU have seen a fly trifling with sticky paper. He walks almost to the edge, then walks ?way, then buzzes around. By and by he Is fast. Henry Ford Is in the buzzing ?tage and has now reached the ?"perhaps" mood. "Will you be a candidate for President In 1924, . Mr. Ford?" "I don't know, perhaps?It Is >a little early to talk about that." The presidential fly paper is waiting, and flies that get close to It rarely escape. Once a fly devotes himself to fly paper he has no other occu pation afterward. Once a man devotes himself to the Presi dency, that is his only "real busi ness." TMAYOR COL'ZENS, appoint ed Senator, says Ford will run on an independent ticket if Ihe Democrats refuse to nomi nate him. and Couzens knows Ford as well as any man knows him. That being so. those that do ?not want Ford will do well to (Continued on Page 2, Column < ) ILIUM HELD ON MINN ACT CHARGES; BR10NU15 Calvin Will and His Wife Are Found Penniless in a Sump tuous Cincinnati Hotel Suite GIRL CLINGS TO HUSBAND Daughter of Hinton, W.
