J Longfellow, in his beautiful poem on "the old citv lv the sea," in which his boyhood was spent, noted that "the thoughts of youth are long, long, thoughts." It is likewise true that, when youth leaves its dreams for the sterner realities of daily work, its thoughts are sometimes short, short thoughts. The collision of vouth with its job sometimes strikes sparks. It is hard to tret adjusted. Grant discovered at West Point that he had no enthusiasm for the nlilitary profession or for the drudgery of this great military school. He actually wrote a letter in winch he advocated the abolition of that great militarv school that has made America famous. That letter came up to plague him while he was prcsi dent. It is hard for the young man when he tackles his job to keep everlastingly at it. His inclination is to "resign" and try some thing else. This is usually the pathway of failure or of only moderate success. In a recent article in one otthc popular magazines, a writer, who has made much more than ordinarv success in life says: "If I were a young artist, 1 would paint soap advertisements, if that were all opportunity offered, until I got ahead enough to indulge in painting madonnas and landscapes. If I were a young musician, I would rather plav in a street band than not at all. It I were a young writer. I would do hack work, if necessary, until I became able to write the great American novel. Nothing is better than "digging in" and holding the line. It is hard work. The acquiring of the proper persistence is harder than the work itself, which often seems of little importance, the work itself mav be of little importance, as one views the great things of life, but the acquisition of the proper spirit is of the ut most value. The world is full of failures who, in a dissatisfied moment, walked up to the window, took what was coming to them in pay, and quit the job. There are bright men who are always "re signing." It is a pretty safe rule to stick it through and do a little more work than is expected ot you. RIGHT AND WRONG SPIRIT. An Iowa farmer, whose sou was one of the first three Ameri cans to be killed in battle in Europe, said, on learning the news: "I am proud of my boy proud that he gave his life for his coun irv." A Chicago father, whose son is reported among those captured, said, "If 1 were only a little younger I would go to jTancc to take his place in the trenches. In marked contrast are these sentiments to the attitude of some well meaning citizens who go about with long faces and drooping heads whenever casualties are reported from the front. Also there are few who believe, in view of the strength being shown by the Germans and Austnans in the west and m Italy and the collapse of the Russian resistance, the United States should seek peace at an early date. Those people fail to take into consideration that this country is in war because our interests were attacked, our'people murder ed, our property destroyed. They do not seem to know that we should show ourselves cowards, if we did not fight Germany alone, if necessary. That an autocracy, whose whole thought and effort for forty years lias been turned to war. should be able to win victories was only to be expected, Mut Germany is today more nearly bled white in both men and money than are the allies and on the western front, where final decision is expected. Germany has gained nothing for more than three years, and during the past six mouths Mjme important strategic retreats have been conducted, and sevcnjl for which no strategy was even claimed by Merlin. Moreover, from Germany have come all the appeals for peace. The outcome is no more in doubt today than it was before Russia collapsed and the Italians retreated from the Isonzo. All the men and money of the four leading democracies of the world are pledged to win the war. They have taken hoid of the enemy with a death grip, and will never let go. no matter what sacrifices have to be made, until their common enemy is overcome. HM 0 -Mr BY THE HUNDRED THOUSAND f4M M f-f-f-H- My indirection, we learn that there art- at least (500,011(1 American soldiers in France. This has not been announced b the "committee on public information" at asliington. but the news is given out that (500.000 Christmas packages have been sent to troops abroad, and there arc few of thein which did not go to France. , The fact that so many soldiers have been transported across the Atlantic in safety is eloquent of the care and the skill with which the transport service has been conducted. liven allotiug ."tOOO men to the ship and only the largest transports carry so many that means that ll!0 ships have threaded tlie mazes of the "eas occasioned by the submarine menace, and not one of them has fallen victim to the kaiser's fiightfulucss. Doubtless most of the regular army is already in Franco, but recent troop nioements have included many of the national guard i 'in t s ami 'slate ,,i t1H r, ;un .it' in''- f.'v ii'kd b- tliCi "rainbow" division, which had been at Cariip Mill's, Hempstead, Long Island, was moved entire, and of its departure, the following graphic account is now given out; In the darkest hour which "precedes the dawn, thousands of Sammies of the Rainbow division marched away from their -camp here en route to France while the townsfolk cheered and showered them with gifts. Details of the Rainbow's secret departure can no.w be told, follow ing the announcement that this unit had safety arrived "over there."' About 3 a. m. on October 15, the Rainbow division engineers, inarched away. Last farewells had been said several days previously when ever man was given an ex tra long leave. Many married during that furlough. As the engineers tramped through the dark to their en training point, the townspeople of villages scattered around this part of Long Island dressed hastily and came too their doors in the chill of early morning, to bid the de parting boys God-speed. This was the beginning of an exodus that lasted more than a week. During that time 27,000 men, fully equipped for fighting. With all their baggage and paraphernalia, marched out of Camp Mills en route to France. Hundreds of residents were in on the great secret, but that secret was kept. While the nation slept thousands of Rainbow boys embarked on their transports. Toward the latter part of that week, the entraining time was changed to a davlight hour and the khaki-clad hosts marched quite openly. "Who are you?" the crowd would shout as a new body of stalwart young Americans swung in sight, and back would come the answer: "Iowa or Xew York this is the old f!)th." The "Rainbow" division alone included national guard -troops from Louisiana. Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Xcw York. Ohio, Geor gia, Alabama, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Minnesota, Maryland, South Carolina, California. Virginia. Missouri. Xorth Carolina, Kansas, Texas, Xew Jersey. Tennessee, Oklahoma. Michigan, Xcbraska, Colorado, Oregon and the District of Columbia. o M.

From the fact that almost 10,000 blanks have been distributed by the Arizona State Bureau ot Mines to prospectors and others who wish to give notice of intention to hold min ing claims under the joint resolution of Congress, it is evident that this law is going to relieve many from their Illinois. While the Liberty bond drive was impending, "Collier's" had a direct and delightfully simple appeal to those who ought to be purchasers, urging first of all the support of the bond issue, but bevond that nointincr out a result thaf might last long after the war. to the permanent development of the resources of the country ! who arc residing in Chicago, and three ii i. ui,. nw.nr-inc tnn ,iiin- sisters in Montana, Colorado and tl ir lilt 11 Ul till II l unnii i,v,nii mivi i v, i , of whom taken little thought for the morrow. Said "Collier's:" A Liberty bond is Cncle Sam's trading stamp. You put up your money for the best goods mankind has ever known justice for all peoples, freedom from tyranny and fear, and you get these engraved papers. (Other men put up their lives). When your stamps come due Uncle Sam will pay you the sum of money they call for, and will pay it in the most permanently valuable thing business men know of gold. More than that, you get a small payment from time to time (inte'rest) because of your lending. The government binds itself by solemn promise to do these things, which is why the. word "bond" is used. Such transactions are called investment, and the habit is one dur people need to get. for it 'enables millions of in dividuals to join' iii vast undertakings that benefit all of them. If the war makes that habit familiar and wide spread, no limit can be set to the better things which our country will then be able to attain. So in buying these Liberty bonds you are not only strengthening our coun try now, but also insuring your own and the nation's fu ture. Is there anything money can do that is half so well worth doing? Two great developments mav follow the experiences of the war. One is this verv habit of thrift. The other is the proper taxing of great wealth not on the basis of war taxation, but still sufficiently that it will contribute a much larger share to government than ever before. Here would be two advantages won by the war here at home, in addition to the part it may play in world affairs and world advancement and world peace. o father.

July, 1903, came West, locating in this: having had as yet no court intcrprc section and working in the mill at the McCabc mine. His health at that time was poor, and he suffered from asthma, which occasioned him to come to this section. In later years his business training was shown in his association with the Arizona Mine Supply Co., of this city, where he gave splendid satisfaction. After ward he entered the Bashford-Bur-mistcr Co., in the hardware depart, mcnt, and at the time of his death was the Prescott representative of the Pratt, Gilbert Hardware Co., of Phoe nix. Mr. Dustin had many warm friends in this section, and while strong in his likes and dislikes his loyalty to friends made him a very popular man.

The aviation section 'ol the army wants 10,000 skilled mechanics at once, acording to an official announce ment just received by the Journal Miner from Major H. R. Harmon of the U. S. Signal Corps, Fort Sam Houston, Texas. His letter in part says: "1. The aviation section is in ur gent need of at least 10,000 skilled mechanics representing about 60 dif- tations, and It has caused a Hood of i fercnt trades. Men between the ages inquiries to come' to the Bureau of of IS and 40 are eligible, but those Mines. While the Bureau has, ot course, no authority to interpret the law, advice is given as to the inter pretation that the authorities of the Bureau consider correct.

Without doubt! publicity campaign which the aviation within the draft ages, 21 to 31, must report to the recruiting officer on or before December 3th. After that date men of the draft age are not eligible for voluntary enlistment in the army. .'2. It is requested that you render privileges they can, for while the law does dot state specifically corporations, it states "the owners of mining claims." It would be unconstitutional to make a law that would discriminate against corporations, as that would be class legislation. section is now carrying on in this connection. There is every opportun ity for advancement of men in the aviation section. Service abroad is practically assured, although a large number will ncccssarilv be retained in j this country to carry on the work at Another question that is popular is I the numerous aviation schools now 350,000 THRALLS. MHIHHHHtHHtlllMHHMHHIHIIHHMIMIHH t I'here is "rowing sentiment in congress that the people of the District of Columbia should have a representative in the house. Under the present system the :io0,0C0 citizens of the District are permitted no voiqe whatever in their own government, and have no way in which to acquaint the lawmaking body with their views on legislation except by petition. That method has proven of little avail in the past. Petitions, at best, are of slight practical value, and seldom receive from either the house or its committees the attention which their contents frequently should command. What is needed is a capable representative constantly in attend ance on the floor of the house ready to champion vigorously the rights of the people of Washington when their interests arc at stake. The constitution saws the house shall be composed of mem bers chosen by the "people of the several States," hence an amend ment would be necessary to enable the District of Columbia to be represented. It is thought, however, that there would be slight difficulty in getting the approval of congress to such an amend ment, and the States are expected not to deny the people of the District the right they themselves enjoy. What would be the political complexion of a member from the city of Washington is somewhat doubtful, with the chances favoring a republican. Up until two years ago a republican would almost certainly have been elected, but with the recent tremend ous liiilux ot democratic oiiice-noiuers me icnticncv is more to wards that party. . o r - inuMO pcto no M1N0 uuo JUU ON EXPLOSIVES COMMITTEE whether or not groups may be record cd on one blank.
