It rarely oc tw? to us that everybody is "unknown" once he is dead. ?re "known" by our names, Property, street address, fam niea. All that falls away when you go into the coffin. What will you meet on the other tide? Who will know your name there?what you are or what you have been? Will you ?*eu know your own name? If you regain consciousness will you say to yourself: "I won der what, who and where I was kefore?" That's what we say in this Consciousness. You remember Thomas Bailey Aldrich's lines: "Somewhere?in desolate wind swept space, "In twilight-land?in No Man's land? "Two ? hurrying Shapes met face to face, "And bade each other stand.

Now be is as gloomy as a Croton bug moved from the kitchen dishes to a field of daisies. Harvey says Europe faces the worst outlook in history. Un less something good comes of the coming meeting of premiers, Harvey does not see "how Europe can live another year." CONDITIONS there are bad. But they had to be bad. Nothing but frightfully bad con ditions would do Europe any food. A man gatting drunk, end eating lobster salad every I ?ight, must have a headache j end a stomach ache both, be fore he will give up the drunk enness and lobster. Europe has got to have a headache and a stomach ache be fore it will give up war. gUT CONDITIONS ARE NOT the worst they have ever been. They are not as bad as when the Black Plague killed more than half of all the people in Europe. Not as bad in France as when it was necessary to pass a law to keep peasants from eating human bodies dead of the plague. JjjUROPEAN conditions are not so bad as they were in Eng land when the idle, starving workman that wandered from his parish, without permission, to find work elsewhere, was branded with a red-hot iron; not so bad as when in England the city government, lord of the ma nor, bishop and king each had a separate gallows, and merchants bringing presents of- fish and game waited on their knees at _ the doors of Parliament to beg relief from too many hangings. /"CONDITIONS are not as bad for Europe as when Attila came marauding with his hordes, bragging that the grass never grew again where his horse had put its foot. Conditions have been worse in Europe than it present for cen turies at a time. Europe, hav ing got over much worse condi tions, will get over these condi tions. fTHE TROUBLE IS THAT science, with its power of killing, quick transportation, wireless and all the rest, has grown too rapidly, while human conscience and common sense have grown too slowly. If you gave a sharp razor to every monkey in the zoological garden you would have a bloody monkey cage. That's what the trouble is in Europe. 1UR.

I'ahcrMl fffrrlM Kpwlftt (orrfupowlMrt. Bpwlal CtM? to t'nlTtraal Hervfce. LAUSANNE, Dec. 5.?The allies are still unable to patch the differ ences with the Russians and Turks. The British now propose a leafrue of nations to control the Straits. The Italians, regarding the league of nations plan as a British instru ment, hold that the best solution .is Tchitcherln's plan which guar antees Italian and Russian commer cial intercourse. Italy cannot permit French Inter-; i ference with Italian trade with Rus-; sia,' in the event that Krassin, the Soviet commercial agent now In Rome, arrives at a trade arrange ment with Premier Mussolini. The French occupy the middle position. While opposing the Soviet policy, they also oppose a perma nent British foothold in the Dar danelles, fearing to consent to such a plan which might arouse the hos tility of any future Russian gov ernment. The Jugo Slavs, while following the entente officially, nevertheless support the Russians secretly. They conferred today with Tchitcherin. The United States is expected to disapprove of any solution of the Straits question involving the or ganizing of a league of nations. Between Lord Curzon's declitratlon that the conference must consider the fact of the British present posi tion at Chanak and Constantinople, and Ismet Pasha's statement that "we are masters of the Straits," lies the chasm which the conference cannot bridge. A patchwork solu tion is the best that will probably result. Gov. Russell's Suit Is Ordered To Trial OXFORD, Miss., Dec. 5.?Over ruling: the demurrer of Gov. Lee M. Russell to Miss Frances C.

"I do not think that any league of nations will suppress war," he said, clenching his gloved hands in emphasis.

This afternoon he will call on former President Wilson, author of the league of nations. ATTITUDE OF WILSON. Official Washington last night was speculating on how Mr. Wilson will receive the aged French statesman, who has been so outspoken ? gainst the league, emphasizing his distrust of it as he goes along. It was recalled that he refused to receive Marshal Foch on his visit here. Foch had spoken unkindly of the league. Col. E. M.
