SNAIL IS WELL PROTECTED Withdraws Into Shell at Hint of Dan ger and Tightly Closes the Only Opening. Snails are most interesting crea tures and are easily observed, espe daily if one has an aquarium. The big Japanese water snail, crawling up the side of the glass, shows all It* parts, and they are virtually the same in all species. An article in the Chil dren’s Museum News describes it a* follows: “Above the flat, gray foot is a snout at the end of which we see a mouth opening and closing deliberately like a winking eye, except that it open* laterally instead of up and down. A ribbonlike tongue darts Mn and out tc rasp away particles of plant by mean* of the tiny, horny points all over it. The eyes are on the little bumps which you see at the base of the home or tentacles, one on each side of the snout. The tubelike opening on one side above the foot forms a passage way *f or the water to enter the gills through which this snail breathes. ! “The foot and head of the snail are the only parts of the body we can see. for the rest of it is wound about spirally within the coils of the shell Now If we tap on the glass of the aquarium the snail suddenly drops to the bottom of the tank, pulling in its tentacles, its mouth, and finally it* foot, and tightly closes the opening to its shell by means of a round lid or operculum, of the same substance a* the shell and fastened to the back of the foot. The fish will bite at that closely shut box in vain If they ex pect to make a meal of the soft bodj within.” BEST WAY TO OBTAIN MONEY Inheriting It Has Many Advantagei Over Getting It by Marriage, Ex perience Has Bhown. Perhaps the best way to get money Is to inherit it. This usually requires no brains, skill, trouble or special apti tude on the part of the recipient. Neither does it involve any obligations of an embarrassing nature. In this respect it has a distinct advantage ovgr getting money by marriage. Getting money by marriage Is, of course, tremendously popular and most authorities unhesitatingly recommend it as the best method next to inherit ing. but the fact remains that it in volves many pitfalls. The wife or husband who brings the money to you may turn out to be considerable of a nuisance and therefore decidedly an have hanging arouD'L “Tanks" Not New. An Irvington professor saw nothing hew in some of the machinery of the world war now employed on the west ern battle line. “Ancient Carthage,” said the pro fessor, “used Tanks.* They differed from the modern tanks in being all alive. These were the elephants which carried castles on their backs filled with fighting men. Protected by armor, these ancient tanks were Invulnerable. Thrown against infantry in the open field, no troops could stand against them. When they attacked fortified camps they broke down tfie palisades, overturned everything and scattered the enemy in a panic. At the battle of Zama, Sclpio, to evade the elephant tank danger, ordered that when the monsters charged they should be ham strung. No German commander has as yet ordered the modern tanks to be hamstrung.”—lndianapolis News. Now the Modern Circuit Rider. The old type of circuit rider in a new guise is coming back. He will return to do church dutj r in the Spo kane country, but will not be known as “circuit rider.” He will be “con vention pastor” and in place of the saddle horse of his old-time model, will use the passenger coaches or per chance, will be chauffeur of his own automobile. The plan is being inaugurated by Dr. A. H. Bailey, superintendent of Bap- f tist missions, says the Spokane Chron- • icle, and the duty of the “convention • pastor” will be to assist weak churches 1 and look after neglected and undevel- | oped fields. Be Ye Transformed. The apostle exhorts us to be “trans formed.” The same Greek word is used to describe the Transfiguration of our Lord. A transformed life Is a transfigured life. The inward life, if It is healthy and true and strong, will certainly shape the outward conduct and character. Just as truly as the physical life molds the infant's limbs, just so truly will the renewed mind make a fit dwelling for itself. “Be ye transformed.” We dream of the transfigured life, the beauty of It, and how desirable it were to live such a life. But how shall we attain It? We are not left in any doubt. “Be ye transformed, by the renewing of your mind.” It Is the work of the Holy Spirit. The change must come from within, and we must Invoke spiritual influences. It is all very well to cor rect outward habits, but to be lasting, to have any real value, the chunge must be the result of an Inward grace. The Pharisees were most correct in their outward conduct, and Jesus lik ened them to whitewashed sepulchers which outwardly are clean, but within are full of rottenness. The real secret of the transfigured life is the transfused life, having its source in Jesns Christ and flowing Into every vein and arteiy of our being, un til we shall be fashioned like the Son of plan. GRIGGS’ BOOK WINS A PLACE “Life’s Demands" Approved For Momphis Pupils. ENRICHES STUDY COURSE Worthy of Recognition by Any of the Colored Bohools of the South, Soys Tennessee City Superintendent—lt Makes Clear the Relationship of the Two Races In the United States. The superintendent of Memphis city schools recently notified the school boards and superintendents of Memphis, Tenu., that the local board of educa tion, upon his recommendation, had ap proved the book ‘‘Life’s Demands," by the Rev. Dr. Sutton E. Griggs, as a sup plemental reader for the colored schools of that city, says Sallle Wlstar in the Philadelphia Ledger. The notification was amplified by an explanation setting forth this book REV. UK. SUTTON E. GRIGGS. marked the first effort by any colored author to prepare a textbook for the colored schools of the country and that the splendid purpose of I)r. Griggs in preparing such a work had his hearty indorsement. Mr. Kincannon expressed his opinion that it should “enrich the course of study of any of the colored schools in the south.” The book contains much thoughtful reflection on tlie characteristics of the Negro race—its deficiencies as viewed from the angle of the white mun and of the standards of the white man’s civilization. The great outstanding need of tin Negro race is a larger « apacity for co operative endeavor, “for it is only through the blended energies of men that the groat things of the world are accomplished.” If the Negroes hud de veloped a civilization they would have developed social capacities. Now they must be Introduced into a civilization created by another race*, and this can only be done through training. “A race living within a civilization by the side of a race that wrought out that civilization cannot afford to limit its cfforls at education to the things provided by the other race for its own self, for the newcomer must in some way make up for the intervening de velopment.” Our civilization having been evolved through tlie. ages and handed down from generation to generation through a continuous evolution of ideas, is dif flcult to assimilate by an alien race, and the latter requires a special train ing If it Is to adapt itself to the stand ard and requirements of that civiliza tion. “Deeper processes of education' would not be amiss,” say* Dr. Griggs For a race to take on the outer forms of an alien civilization without grip ping what underlies it Is of little value. Haiti, which is peopled by Negroes, borrowed from the United States Its republican form of government, but its attempt at a republican form of gov eminent Is a failure. As a fact, the chief progress of so ciety has been made by concerted ac tion. Herbert Spencer truly said, ‘‘Co-op eration is at once that which cannot exist without society and that for which society exists.” Since the su preme mission of mankind is to develop social efficiency, a race tjuit is weak in It's capacity for social service is weak •t the most vital point in its existence. It is in the matter of its capacity for collective action that the Negro race has been weakest. After thousands of years of |K>ssesslon of Africa the Ne groes have lost all except a very small portion. After all, government Is pure ly a co-operative task and can be suc cessfully carried out only by races which possess social qualities. Dr. Griggs concludes that civic education should enter strongly in the training of Negroes in the colored schools. Dr. Griggs says that It Is recognized among the Negroes of America that “they cannot stick together.” In a cer tain southern state out of fourteen Negro banks established thirteen have ootiapeed, and he enumerates similar actable failures In other lines of or ganlaation work, an due to this inca pacity for organisation inherent in the. ■see —this social inefficiency. / YOUR COUNTRY NEEDS GOOD LOOKING MEN AND WOMEN * WHIN OOINQ TO NEW YORK CALL AT THE ALMA BEAUTY PARLOR For Facial Praparodnass for Ladlca and Qantlemen Expert artist in scalp treatment, hair growing, hair dressing and manicuring.

The Star knows in no better way for lodges to do their “bit” in this war than for them now to arrange them selves into a kind of a co-operative body that the less fortunate brothers and sisters can and will be taken proper care of when the real famine comes this winter. Our oaths and ob ligations compel us to look after the widows, orphans and unfortunate members. What better aid, help, sup port or succor can we give them than by us now looking out for these then or probably ourselves? The churches could likewise form some co-operative union whereby the poor and distressed members who had liberally contribut ed once to the church, but, for some reasons were either too poor, too sick or were unable to do so now, could be given proper foods by a .little fore thought, wise business dealings and expert management. The Star offers this plan to the lodges and their aux iliaries: First, appoint two men from each male and two women from the female lodges to form themselves into a large committee of the whole; which committee will lay plans and devise Let Me Grow Your Hair!
