RECORD BELONGS TO SIRIUS Small Vessel Was the First to Cross the Atlantic Wholl? Under Its Own Steam. This spring marks the eightieth an niversary of an important event In modern history—the voyage from Cork to New York of the Sirius, the first vessel to cross the Atlantic wholly un der its own steam. All that remains of that stanch little craft is a number of brass paper-weights made from the metal work after it was wrecked in Ballycotton bay In 1847. Captain Rob erts, commander of the 412-ton Sirius on Its maiden trip, was l°ter trans ferrd to the President, which went down with all on board. Thus both the Sirius end lior master met with a tra"!c end. The Sirius made the voyage from Cork In 19 days, reaching New York rnly a few hours before the Great V-istem, another steamship which h: 1 sailed from Bristol. The latter made the best time, crossing the ocean in 15 days. The Sirius had a passenger list ot seven on Its Initial voyage, the youngest ot whom was Vincent 10. Ransome, then four years old, who as reported living a few years ago in Wiltshire, England, where he was long the rector of a parish church. The Siring was a' schooner-rigged ship and was 178 feet over/all, with a beam of 29 feet and a depth of 18 feet. Electricity on the Farm. It Is apparent from the fact that 200,000 horse power In electric mo tors is now actually being used on the farm that the phrase "Electricity on the Farm" does not constitute an idle dream any longer, remarks the Gen eral Electric Review. Although 160, 000 horse power of this is used for irri gation and reclamation purposes (a pe culiarity of semiarid sections), the remainder, or 40,000 horse power, is actually being used for miscellaneous farm purposes, such as driving the cream separator, butter churn, and so The only thing that we are not on. doing with electricity on any scale Is Gang Luo went to war? All over the plowing and cultivating, and THE BLUE T31AKSLE ON BABEL'S TOWER Lucia pulled hei shawl farther across her face and shrank down on the station platform bench as the solid blue figure suddenly IjAent down over her. Excitedly she shook her head In answer to the question that she could' not underhand. She searched through her red pi id waist for the paper that Tony had folded Into a little square and giwn to her. The writing on It, in the EnglMi that Tony knew and &he did not, 111:t'te house where she lived. Tony had explained it all to her that morning. Ife hud told It to her again at the station. Then, waving his hat, he had disappeared into the train wl'jr the rest, of the men, and Lucia hnri been left standing oueside the gate. There were crowds of women pushing all uhout her. They were weeping. So Lucia wept, too. Lucia had been betrothed to Tony in the old country. Five years before, with a long ticket £or New York pinned Into his Inside pocket, her lover had left her. He wrote in every let ter that he had made her a home In the new country. Her dowry money had finally provided her own transport tatton, and for two months Tony and she had been married. Then he had drawn a ticket with a number on It, and this morning he had gone Off to war. To the policeman Lucia told all these things In rapid Italian. But the po liceman only talked back to ber as rapidly In a language that was not Italian. She followed him dumbly to headquarters. An hour later a wom an wearing American clothes gently began talking to her In benutlful Ital ian. Italian I.ucia was only one of thou sands of foreign-horn women, Syrians, Italians, Armenians, Russians, Llthu- 1 aniens, Polish, who, when the draft called their men folk to the American colors, asked In helpless confusion wSiat it was all nbout. When would their men lie hark? What did people mean when they told them they would receive money through the mail? Where,could they find work that they knew how to do? Was there no one who could explain It all to them In The A. was ready to offer c. examination free, except thet expense assistance, hut It would be of no value of treatment when desired. to offer It In English. Consequently According to his method of treat ment he does not operate for chronic appendicitis, gall stones, ulcers of stomach, tonsils or adenoids. It had to supply a corps of women who could talk to the foreign-born woman at her own door In the language that she was used to hearing In the home kind. To teach her English was as essential a factor In her Americaniza tion as to And her a job. Therefore the war council of the Y. W. C. A. set ont to And her English. A year before the war began In Eu rope, the leaders of the Young Wom an's Christian association foresaw just such a situation, and made ready to meet it. They studied the needs of the immigrant. They trained skilled American social workers to become fa miliar with the home hnbit.s and to speak the language of the Lett and the Hungarian and the Greek and the oth er foreign mothers who brought bn hies and bundles over from .Ellis Island to Battery park. The organization Into which this ex periment has developed was named by tii'* Y. \V. f\ A. national hoard, "The International Institute for Young Women." I*i terms which these wom en can understand, it Is teaching the forelgn-hofn how to sew and cook and care for the haby. To girls like Italian Lucia, who con fusedly lingered on the station plat forms when the draft trains pulled out, the W. Y. A. Is .giving direct as sistance.

Hostess Houses are able to talk to the drafted men In their own language, assist them In writing letters home, and ii: ar ranging furloughs and little visits to the cainp. "The Home Information Service for Foreign Families of Enlisted Men" is doing practical relief work for the wive ar:-l n,others. The purpose ot the hoard is to help the women folk left behind to understand where their boys are and how they are being treat ed how they need home support and cheer, how to send them comforts, and to keep pace themselves by learning English and other things, so that when the boys come home they will not find their women still very un-American and out of sympathy with them. Food conservation bulletins have been translated into 18 or 10 languages. At the factories and munition plants Interpreters are available for the non English speaking women by whom the real war Industries of the country are being largely carried on. In 25 im portant cities International Institute Bureaus are training American and foreign women for full time social service work with foreigners. Twenty four trained women are employed on the national and district field staff of the Y. W. C. A. On June 15 there were 105 trained women working at Ameri canization. When more than 7:",000 Chicago men filled out their blue cards for the Sep tember 12 draft, Gang Luo Wong ap peared ct one precinct bringing with him Mrs. Gang Wong and the three children.

Caflpa Villa was the shabbiest the long row of shabby suburban 'looses on the dusty street. A line of dwarf poplars edged the sidewalks where children played all day long, and the wind quivered among the leaves as a slight breeze wandered down the neglected street. In the front window of Catalpa Villa was a black and gold sigtt. "Furnished Rooms to Kent," it read. Felix Dare alighted from a car at the corner and walked slowly down the street, studying the little painted signs over the doors. These signs were misleading enough. For instance, Greenlawn was qnlte guiltless of grass In its grubby front yard, Hope Cottage bore a quite hope less aspect and Rose Arbor bowed Its head beneath the weight of a worm Infested rambler rose bush which had long since ceased to bloom. Then came Catalpa Villa, named for the decrepit catalpa tree that graced Its little strip of ragged lawn, Felix paused In front of Catalpa Villa, set down his bag and violin case, and studied a little notebook. Then resuming his burdens he went up the Bugged walk to the front door. A flat-chested, grimy-pawed woman admitted blm to a stuffy little hall. "Mrs. Beals?" asked Felix pleasant ly. "That's my name," she replied sus piciously. Felix smiled. "I met your son, Daniel Benls, when I was in Chicago, and he recommended his mother's iiome as nn excellent boarding place. I was hoping you had a room for me." He did not add that Don Beals was drinking himself to death In the big city, and that Felix's com ing to board In this shabby suburb was prompted by a vague feeling of pity for Dan's mother. "That's another matter," commenced Mrs. Beals briskly. "It's the first sen sible thing I ever knew Dan Beals to 9o in all his worthless life—but it's like his father—keen at hunting op work for me! I've got a front room, bay window, new carpet last winter, best bed you ever slept on. Want to 3ee Jt?" "If yon please!" Felix followed hts prospective landlady up the narrow stairs. When they reached the top, some one opened a lower door and a sweet voice floated up. "Mrs. Beals, you are wanted at the telephone." "I'm coming. Just you wait, Mr. Dare, nnd I'll send the girl to show you the room. It's three-fifty a week without board if you eat here it will cost you eight altogether. Anna belle!" Mrs. Beals ran down the stairs with astonishfng agility and addressed the unseen Annabelle. "Go upstairs and show that gentleman the front room. He can come right in if he wants to—you can get It ready in half an hour. Hurry now and don't stand staring at me so impudently!" A door slammed after Mrs. Beals' retreating form. Then light steps sounded on the stairs and presently a girl joined Felix In the upper hall. Felix stared at her, for Mrs. Beaft had the most amazingly pretty maid servant in the world—and she didD't look a bit like a maid servant she was a lady from the smooth braids of her coroneted hair to the soles of her neat little black slippers. She wore a print gown of blue nnd a spotless white apron. "You wished look at a room?" she asked haughtily. "I beg your pardon—yes!" cried Felx, passing a hand before his dazed eyes. /.nnahelle led the way into a dingy front bedroom that gave every evi dence of being occupied, perhaps, be tween the Sittings of boarders, by Mrs. Beals herself. The bed was carelessly made, sundry middle-aged feminine garments graced the chairs, and on the burean was a grizzled ffclse "front," whose rightful place was undoubtedly atop of Mrs. Beals' bead. "This Is the room," said the girl Indifferently. "But—but It Is occupied," hesitated Felix. "Mrs. Beals has been sleeping here, bnt It can be prepared for yon within an hour," replied Annabelle. "I hardly think," began Felix, and then be thought of his promise to Dan Beals—Dan had been a news paper reporter, and Felix had liked the brilliant, dissolute youth if In any way he could help Dan by stopping with Dan's mother he would have a try at it "I will bring my things np now," he said to Annabelle, who was gather ing up Mrs. Beals* garments. When Felix came Into the room with his bag and violin case the girl ottered a little startled cry. "You play?" she asked quickly. He smiled and nodded. "I am' In the orchestra of the Excelsior thea ter." "Not—not the new leader, F0U Dame?" she breathed eagerly. you 7 "Yes," he answered In a surprised tone. "But—what are you doing here—at Catalpa Villa? Who would stop In such—ugly shabblness unless It was absolutely necessary, and it cannot be that with you! I have heard aboat and when I read that you weN SINGLE TAX EXPOSED "Farmers Can Have Shell If We Get the Kernel." Proposition Cnowed Under by 503,137 to CC.0/,7 in Sizie of fviissouri. The .«!: *:tr coated Single Tax doc trine piv .'ised for adoption in the form of a constitution.-!! amendment, to be voted on this fall, under the at tractive title "exemption of farm im provements," is exposed in its true light in a story of the light made by the fanners in Missouri against the enactment of the Single Tax. The story discloses that. in Missouri ,thp single tax. as it always does, had the support of the wealthy interests, the holders of vast personal property possessions, who, through the medium of the single tax, shift the burden of taxation from themselves onto tha land. In discussing the doctrine the foU lowing is quoted from "Progress anl Poverty," a book by Henry George, the original single tax advocate, pages 403 and 404, as follows: "I do not propose either to pur etiase or to confiscate private property in land. The first would be unjust the second needless. Let the individuals who now hold It still retain, if they want to, possession of what they are pleased to call THEIR land. Let them continue to call it THEIR land, let them and sell and be queath and devise It. We may safely leave them the shell, if we take the KERNEL. It is not necessary to confiscate land it ie only necessary to con fiscate the rent. In this way the state may become the universal landlord without calling herself so." Thus, as Ilenry George expresses It, the whole purpose of the Single Tax Is ownership of land by the state. The point of the single tax, as ap plied to the North Dakota political situation, is found in the fact that the! doctrine was set forth lu House Bill 44, supported by Governor Frazler, and opposed by Mr. Doyle. In this analysis of the Single Tax a letter Is quoted, written by Jewell Mayes. Secretary of the Missouri State Board of Agriculture, Jefferson City. Mo., who was in charge of the pub licity campaign in Missouri when the fight was staged there lu 1912. In part, Mr. Mayes says: Saddle Tax on Farmers. "The year 1912 witnessed the at* tempt to saddle the single tax onto Missouri farmers. "Four country men met one day In Knnsas City at the office of the late Senator George Falloon, early in the! summer, and then und there we de cided to call a state convention at tho capital to lay before the people the truth uhout the propaganda, which evi dently was being finances by Joseph Fels, millionaire soup manufacturer and single tuxer. "The state convention in Jefferson City was largely attended, creating the 'Missouri Anti-Single Tax League,' which was organized in each congres sional distriot and every county, for holding public meetings and distribut ing literature. Funds were raised for state and county purposes, and a state headquarters opened in Kansas City, a vigorous and successful campaign conducted therefrom. Farmers Take Stump. "Farmers who had never made a. speed) took (he stump, and many a fiery orator was created over night. •Sentiment and passion ran high. Single taxers traveled over the state, financed by the Fels fund, and in many instances the socialistic speakers aroused public opposition to the dan ger point. "Single tax was studied In eVery home. Single tax hooks were bought and read. Anti-Single Tax boqklets and books were written and printed. Many lecturers against Single Tax toured the state. Many newspapers gave more space to fighting the propa ganda than they used in political effort, "The State was aroused to fever^ heat at the thought of placing all the burdens of taxation on land. Th tow farmers who ha dheld to that social istic faith awakened to the scrioumiexs of the situation and turned against the Single Tax. "Interests" For It "Some of the corporations and cer tain big 'interests' started out very, very favorable to the Single Tax. Certain public men who had contrib uted to The Fels Fund Fellers' hur ried to cover. Candidates for public office, who had previously gone on record In favor of Single Tax, rushed to either denounce it or withdraw from their races. "Poll-workers, without pay, were or ganized at every country polling place In Missouri. Armed with samples of the style of the ballot, with 'Constitu tional Amendment No. Six' marked 'No' practically every Missourian was advised and counselled before entering the polling place. 8nowed Under.
