from 5:30 o'clock in the morning un 'tii 8 o'clock at night Medical ex perts say he was not very bright, that he inherited bad tendencies and J'here were no good influences in the btfy's home to offset his fieritage. The laim was made that hard work de anged the boy's mind. The boy whose Kfe the "Money King" would gain never heard of the lad who died at Ludlow. Rockefeller never heard of either boy, but "Mother" Jones "mother of miners" 'and friend of the oppressed every where, knew the history of both. When the "best little lad in Lud low" was murdered "Mother" Jones openly charged the fuel interests iwith responsibility for the murder; she later told John D., Jr., himself that he ought to help reimburse so ciety with a 'life for a life." Now "Mother" Jones is to super vise the reclamation of Herman Coppes, to give the boy murderer a chance to live the life the Ludlow boy might have lived. Young Rockefel ler has told her to spare no expense in the education of the boy. "Mother" Jones, with Rockefeller's aid, has started the official machinery in Illinois which she hopes will lib erate Coppes before Feb. 27, his 17th birthday anniversary. If Gov. E. P. Dunne signs Herman's pardon, "Mother" Jones will send him, at Rockefeller's expense, to a farm in Nevada. He will be in charge of a teacher who will study his men tal and his moral possibilities and limitations with a view to directing his activities according to his capac ity. "Mother" Jones' experiment, it is said, is the first practical "dollars and cents" effort to establish the new so cial law that will give a "life for a Jife." o o Pres. Wilson, through Secy.

L. Keen, European manager of the United Press, with headquarters in London, and William Philip Simms, manager of the Paris bureau of the United Press, after a short trip through this country are surprised at the opinion this country holds with regard to the friendship of England and Prance. Any idea that the the allies bear the United States a lasting friendship be cause of ammunition shipments is erroneous. The allied countries look on the U. S. as a dollar-making na tion, staying out of the war for com mercial reasons. This attitude, according to Keen, is especially prevalent in England among the general public, which is convinced Uncle Sam is prepared to swallow any "insult to his honor" rather than relinquish this unprece dented opportunity of lining his pockets with European gold. The feeling borders on contempt, rather than hate. This view is not held in official circles. In official circles of France, also, says Simms, no censure is held for this country, but the French people generally are not so lenient They think the United States stands for peace and making lots of money at any price; that dollars count before ideals. . t Both correspondents say there is no disposition on the part of the allies to make peace, and they are ready to fight the war to a definite conclusion. o o FIND LAKE FOREST GIRL DEAD IN SNOW NEAR SCHOOL Marion Lambert, 17, student of Sacred Heart Academy, Lake For est, found dead in woods near schooL No marks of violence, but marks of struggle in snow.
