HEALING, HE SAYS Cowboy Artist's Fracture Result of Misstep of His Saddle Horse Word comes from Charles M. Russell, the artist, who is passing the summer at his cabin on Lake McDonald, that he is gradually recovering from the effects of • fractured right wrist sustained a short iime before he went to his summer home. Artist Russell was riding his ■addle horse on the road near the Gib ■on ranch when the animal stepped into • hole and fell, throwing Mr. Russell over its head and resulting in his sus taining a fracture of the right wrist. One of the aggravating facts in con nection with the injury, in addition to the pain it incurs, is that it is his right wrist that was hurt. He "had been cotn mssioned to paint a picture for the Duke _ of Connaught and now this will materially interfere with that plan. Artist Russell has planned to go to the big stampede at Calgary which opens August 25 and continues five days.

This statement was recently made by Josephus Daniels, secretary of the United States navy, in an address urging young men to enlist id this branch of the service. He contnued: "Upon the cessation of hostilities, the departmet 's first concern was to bring about the release of the youn£ men who came into the navy to contribute their help in the time of War, and by so do ing sacrificed from one to two years of their educational training, so as to per mit their return to college. "I strongly advise every young man who can possibly do so to go to college, and I appeal to parents to encourage their sons to complete their education. If unable to do so, however, I urge that parents investigate, in behalf of their sons, the opportunities offered by the navy to every ambitious young man and suggest that they interview the local re cruiting officer or communicate with the navy department. "To the average young man. one of the chief appeals of college life, apart from the educationnl advantage, is the athletic training and resultant fun which forms a part of the life that is a healthy American viewpoint. The athletic life is also one of the strongest allurements of the navy. Kach ship has its athletic activities and the intership contests are events to which the men look forward with as keeii anticipation as do the var sity enthusiasts. "The technical training offered by the navy gives young men an opportunity to become proficient in whatewr line they choose and at the same time lead the life consistent with ideals of American man hood."

CHILDREN ARE GIVEN CHANCE tO WIN GENUINE WAR TROPHY Hand Grenades, Made for Fighting Purposes, Offered as Recepta cles for Funds to Be Used in Purchase of Thrift or War Savings Stamps. TO BE READY FOR FREE DISTRIBUTION SOON Thousands of Grenades Coming to Banks of Ninth Federal Reserve District to Be Given Out They Become Property of Children Who Fill Them and Invest Contents In Thrift or War Savings Stamps. School children thruout every part of the Ninth federal reserve district are to be given the chance this summer to win as a war trophy an actual hand grenade, made for fighting purposes. At the same time they will receive a direct and prac tical lesson in thrift and prosperity un der the plan which has been evolved by M. E. Harrison, director of the distrust war savings organization and his aides. The grenades, in accordance with the idea of a thrifty soul in Washington who was unwilling to see so much good ma terial go to waste after fighting stop ped. have been made into savings banks. Just a slot cut at the top and a screw inserted at the bottom, and presto—the . .. . . , ,. , bomb that was to have clinch d thin„. in tight trench and dugout fighting has become a weapon against the lorces of I extravagance. The grenades are beinr houcht from the treasury department by bank* ev ; erywhere in Minnesota, North and South I 'akota. Montana find the Michigan and i Wisconsin counties in the Ninth district. I The banks, in turn, loan the grenades to jail children under IT years of ago who apply. The child must, however, pledge 1 himself to save regularly, to put his sav ings in the grenade, and. wjien it is full, to bring the grenade to the bank which loaned it to him and to buy thrift Or war j savings stamps from that bank with the ! contents. ! The reward of the child who borrows ; the little grenade bank and saves sys tematieally will l<e twofold, for he will ; receive the grenade as his own property [as soon as he has s:i\e<1 enough to buy , one of the war savings «tamps of ma turity value, and at the same time he will be receiving training in the habit I which will be more valuable to him in j later life than any other. •'We want every child in the states of, this district to go to the bank their Hand Grenade Savings Bank—Life Size HRIfflS PÖW g BU SAVE -1 parents use, sign the thrift pledge there and borrow a hand grenade savings bank," Ray C. Teuscher, executive sec retary of the war savings organization said yesterday. "We want every child to realize that by saving now he is plac ing himself on the highway to prosperity and independence m later life. At the same time he is proving himself, or she is proving herself, to be a little patriot, the kind of an American we are proud of, such an American as the whole world is praising today. "Banks of the district are purchasing the grenades freely. The cost to them is but a few cents each and they can I afford to give them to the child who I saves and buys a war savings stamp, for it is probable that each child will grow I up to becom* a steady patron of that ! bank. If the thrift habit takes hold of him he will be so thankful in later life that 1*- will be likely to patronize the bank which did him so great a favor as i to start liim right." M. E Harrison, director of war sav ings, added a word to convince children that the grenade savings banks they are to receive are real war trophies, even if they have been made over a little. Hun dreds of thousands of them were all packed ready for shipment to Europe when the armistice was signed. They stood around for a long time and war department officials got tired of seeing them, they were so darned explosive and everything. Then a treasury depart ment man got the idea of removing the powder and caps and remaking them into savings banks. "So," said Mr. Harri son, "every bank is a real trophy of war anad if the war had continued each one would have eiploded in some enemy trench or dugout. What is thought about the hand gren ade savings bank plan by banks of the country districts was proved three days after a first announcement was sent out. Orders, accompanied by cash, for more than 50.000 of the grenades were re ceived from Iftmks in a single morning. And ail these are to he given to children as soon as they save for and buy one I war savings stamp. In all, war savings headquarters expects that at len^t 200. tMHi of the grenades will he distributed. That will represent the neat savirur of more than $1.000,000 by Ninth district children alone between now and the time I school starts. Children who are members of school savings societies may go to banks when school opens and get a certificate shoy >ng how much they have saved during tll(l Rumni( , r- They will be credited with j amoun fc j n their standing in their sc hoolroom war savings society. j i j | j I j ! !

Washington, July 20.—In connection with the recognition of the full sovereign ty of Iceland, recently ac«*orded by Hen mark, by which the island enters the Danish federation on equal terms with I Denmark, the National Geographic so | ciety has issued from its Washington j headquarters the following bulletin: Geographically and geologically Iceland ! is a part of—a continuation of—the ; British Isles, for it is situated on the I same submarine mountain ridge stretch ! ing from southeast to northwest across i tho North Atlantic, says the bulletin, j which is based on a communication from i .Ton Stafansson. j Iceland is not a bleak, arctic region, j embedded in thick-ribbed ice. tho its i northermost peninsula, Hifstangi, pro jects a mile north of the Arctic circle. I No country on earth of equal size con ! tains so varied and wonderful phenom J ena. The glaciers of Switzerland; the ; fjords, salmon rivers, and midnight sun "of Norway; the volcanoes, grottoes and solfataras of Italy, on a grander scale; the mineral springs of Germany ; the j geysers of New Zealand: the largest I waterfall, next to Niagara, in the world— J all are here. Nowhere has nature been j so spendthrift in giving a geological les i son to man. If there be sermons in j stone, volumes lie unread here. Here we ! see her titanic forces at work building j up a country. Nowhere is it possible to : study so well the geological conditions prevailing toward the close of the «ilacial epoch in Europe. _ I Iceland has another and greater claim to one's interest. It is, as William Mor ris said, "the Greece of the north." It. ! produoed in the twelfth and thirteenth ' centuries a literature unparalleled after Rome before the golden age of England j and France, in character drawing, in ! passionate dramatic power, in severe, noble simplicity, in grim humor. All the characters of the Sagas live and move : today. Every hill and headland and val-' 1 ley in the island is ftill of their presence, i The Icelander of today knows them by heart. It is as if every Englishman, from pauper to king, knew Shakespeare's ; historical plays and could retell them I more or less in bis or her own words. ! It has kept the national spirit alive thru ; evil times. It has preserved the lan guagc almost untouched by time and for eign intercourse. Vet this literary people still live in a pastoral and Homeris civilization, which in a modern lesson of the healthfulness ; of human life lived in close contact with the free, wild life of nature, such as would have delighted the heart of Rous seau or Thoreau. For four hundred years Iceland was an aristocratic republic, ruled by the great families of the early settlers, among whom was a Norse queen of Dublin. A fourteen days' open-air parliament of all iceland met annually in June at Thing vellir, and the speaker of the law (log soguman) used to recite from memory the whole of the unwritten, elaborate laws of the country to the assembly. In 1262-12R4 Iceland was united to Nor way. aud in 1380 with Norway to Den mark. The Danish rule ruined the is land economically, but since the granting of self-government and the re-establish ment of the old parliament, in 1874, at lteykjjavik, great progress has been made. 1 If We Had Always Had Prohibition (Archie Austin Coates in Life.) Cleopatra had just dissolved a pearl in a cup of vinegar. "I read in the Sunday paper," she con fided to Charmian, "that this makes an excellent home-mixed cocktail." Socrates was dying in the midst of his assembled friends. "You should never have drunk that hemlock stuff," remarked Phaedo sagely. "It was my only mistake," the philo sopher replied.

'Töou'll find this excellent, she said. "I made it in my own still in the secret cellar of the palace." The Queen of benmark raised the fatal cup to her lips as Hamlet, battled.

But the stupid eavesdropper thot they referred to what was in their glasses. The Ancient Mariner tottered towards the village soda fountain.
