Another German reporter de

he saw In an asylum for poor
children In Germany.
All the children were Bkin and

on the ground, dead of starvation.

boats equal to the one commanded
by RIzzo. Which way did he go?
He turned his boat toward that

He shot thr.ugh the de

What will our friends, the pro

They were proud of their "full

have gone farther.
The workman's motto is no

"The full bank account."
What can the Republicans Invent

Sometimes truth and perceptive

babes and sucklings- Sometimes
it comes from the mouths of Wall
street writers. One of the best
known of the Wall street men has
recently assured the public that
"price fixing is about to end."
Good Old Judge Law of Supply
and Demand is to rule and decide.
If one man has it and another man
wants It, let the man who has it
and the man who wants it fight it
out about the price.
A very intersting suggestion. If
it happens, there will be troubles
in this country that will surprise

This has bfen determined upon
by tho Citizens' Angelus Committee

complete the details of the daily
The date was determined after an
interesting and spirited debate prin
cipally among the cl'rgymcn present,
after Pr. Wallace Uadclirfe had urg
ed upon the committee the Importance
of starting the Angelus on a Sunday.
"Uoon u Sundai " said Dr. Kadcllffe.
"preachers in eery pulpit will be de
livering sermons at 12 o'clock At
noon, if rvery preacher will clop f-r
a moment in his discourse, to offer
the flrst of the community prayers,
the effect will be such as to gain th
attention of tens of thousand of
church people, and In this way the
Angelus custom will get a Wart
which otherwise it could not hdve."
This plan appealed to the commit
tee, and upon the motion of U. S.
Commissioner Isaac It Itltt. the date
