Ladies salute each other in military fashion instead of bestowing tho sisterly kiss, and men and boys are saluting instead of tipping their hats. The indications nre that habit is growing and that it is not likely to be abandoned for a long time. Tbe sight of large numbers of men in khaki is too new in this country to encourage, the civilian to imitate the military salute. Of course, the civilian sometimes Is puzzled as to the proper procedure when he meets a friend who has been newly commissioned an officer. He -doesn't know whether to salute or to shake hands, and gen erally ends by doing both. If the prevalence of the satiating habit in England is an indication of the trend of fashion in this country, the polite man of the future may abandon hat tipping entirely. When the saluting habit fastens it self on civilians it will not be an ex traordinary sight to see the iceman drop his tongued ice while his right hand goes to his forehead with his forearm making an ngle of 4u degrees with the line of his shoulder and smartly hringing the hand to his side. Also the polite waiter, when he is bringing in the matuinal hot cakes, perhaps must balance an armful of stuff in bis left hand while he salutes with his right. We all know what would happen if a paper hanger in the act of smearing a roll of paper on the wall should stop suddenly to salute the owner of the house. . And thoso fellows who pull on the rope which lifts the big steel safe into the fourth story window what would happen should they let go to salute? It will be better for everybody if the salute is left exclusively to, the-army and the navy. If civilians are unable to resist the urge to salute comebody let them get into the khaki. $600 WAS HIDDEN IN OLD COFFEE POT (New York Tribune) An old coffee pot thrown away In Tuckcrton. N.

After a week of weary waiting I'm going to let you in on the labors of successful students of last Monday's edition, and I want you all to peruse these ads once more and see if this time you can't cross the tape in noth ing flat. Just remember that it's the fellow who uses his head for something else besides a hat rack that brings home the soup tickets, so get out the old crayon and follow 'em up. Of course you know that we're run ning this page every Monday morning for ten weks, and every time you score it means a little piece of change to rattle in your leans or cheerfully clink in an embroidered hand bag. If we can't all scrap the. Huns, we have to stay here and fight for a living, and it s some conflict at that to pre vent the successful retreat of the im perial dollar, that after all come to think about it, might contain some German silver. So it's up tj you birds who are calamity howling about the H. C. of I to dig up the family abridged and steal second, 'cause the five- and the two-case notes as well as the three silver simoleons we're going to slip to the lucky souls next week, will keep the varnish on the front door panel Intact, as far as the wolf is concerned, for a little while longer. I was simply swamned last week with a whole mess of incorrect answers, and I'll excuse it this time because it's a brand new idea, but take a little time off, brothers and sisters, and dope it out. Using one sheet of paper and about thirty seconds' time before pursuing the postman down the ave nue won t do it. Take it easy read it over ask your friends then let me hear from you. If a little girl eight years old. and a mighty clever one at that, can grab off second honors, some of the rest of you ought to be able to drop the Hammer and ring the bell at least once. Well, anyway, I got 26 correct ones, and we sure give 'em credit. I'm giv ing the list down below of the three winners and those that got honorable mention. This is all decided, you know, by three judges, two men and one lady to kinda balance things up, That'll square it, you'll all agree, I'm sure, for didn't Dr. Perrv at the high school yesterday say that women of Arizona knew twice as much as the men and got away with it? All right, if you've taken all this to heart, no more suspense. Sherman C. Fiske. of 1529 West Jef ferson, beat the rest of the bunch to it and kidded the committee into fork Ing over the big money. Little Doro thy . Henning, 1303 North Sixteenth sireet, came next, ana already, no doubt, has doped out a way to spend hers. Thrift stamps, 1 11 bet.

Phoenix, age 17 years, RUSSIAN PIUNCE COMES TO AMERICA (New York Herald) Prince Nicholas V. Engalitcheff and Princess Engalitcheff arrived re cently from France, he on a diplo matic mission and she to engage in charity work in behalf of France. The prince and princess were mar ried at Paris in December, 1916. She was Mme. V. Bertrand, the widow of a minister of posts and -telegraphs. The prince had long been a resident of the Russian consulate in . Chicago and holding other posts of a diplo matic nature for years. "One of the chief reasons for com ing here, he said, is to see my little son Vladimir, who is at a' school in the neighborhood of New York.1 (Boston Transcript) It was long a popular belief among the ignorant in England that if a man sold his wife at public auction such a sals had all the legality of a regular divorce. The latest case of the kind on record occurred in 1832. , John .Thompson, a farmer, had been married for three years, and he and his wife agreed to separate. Thompson brought his wife into the town of Car lisle, and bv the oeuman announcea that he was about to sell her. At midday Thompson placed his wife on a large oak chair with a rope of haltex of straw about her neck. He then made this announcement: "Gen tlemen, I have to offer to your notice mv wife. Mary Anne Thompson, otner wise Williams, whom I mean to sell to the highest and fairest bidder. It is her wish as well as mine to part for ever. 'She has beep to me only a born ser pent. I took her for my comfort, the good of mv home. But she became my tormentor, a domestic curse, a nignt invasion and a daily devil. . "I speak truth from my heart when I says: "May God deliver us from trou blesome wivea and frolicsome women: Avoid them as you would a mad dog, a roaring lion, a loaded pistol, cholera morbus. Mount Etna or any other pes tilential 4hing in nature.' 'Now. I have shown you of her dark faults and failings. I will introduce the brieht. and sunny side of her and explain her qualifications and good ness,- She can read novels and milk cows,- She can laugn ana weep with the same ease that you would take a glass of ale when thirsty. Indeed, gen tlemen, she reminds me of what the poet says of women in general: " 'Heaven ' gave women the peculiar . grace ' To laugh, to weep, to cheat the human ' - race.' " '8he can make butter and scold the maid. She can sing Moore's melodies and plait her folds and caps. She can not make rum, gin or whisky, but she is a good judge of the quality of each from long experience in tasting them. I therefore offer her, with all her per fections and imperfections, for the sum of 500 shillings." The woman was finally sold to one Henry Mears for the sum of 20 shil lings and a Newfoundland dog. Man and wife parted in perfect good tern per, Mears and the woman going one way, Thompson and the dog another. o Do not wait till tomorrow phono that WANT AD. to The Republican and dispose of, or get. wnat you want. 0 ' JIMMIE ARCHER SIGNS Our Cigar Counter is getting to be a favorite meeting placo for men.
