HOLLLMS Here's a boy whose name is a combina tion of two of the greatest Americans— Henry Clay and Andrew Jackson. This Age-Horald carrier's name is Clay Jack son, a good iurne and a manly young fallow bears it. Clay lives at *534 Thirty fourth street. Ts.tith, and carries The Age Herald to office buildings in the down town section. Tou may gather an Idea that he has a small route, ub to length, because the office buildings in the downtown section are within a radius of six blocks. But, h* must climb countless steps and deposit a paper in practically every office in all the buildings. During the baseball sea1 son It .s even worse than that, for he has to leave two or three Age-Heralds in many of the offices. Clay says that in the summer Ids route almost doubles, so many are the people who know The Age-Herald to be the only reliable publication for sporting news in Birmingham, or Alabama, for that mat ter. Clay plays baseball himself occasionally and also devotes some of his time to foot ball, when it is in season. On the dia mond he plays in right field and is a member of the Dakevlew team. During the football season he plays quarterback. He is just the kind of a fellow who can play quarterback, for upon the quarter bark- devolves the most arduous duties of the game. The quarter must know all tlie signals and be able to snap them RUd the ball quickly. He must be the quickest thinker on the team, for opposed to him are 11 other fellows, who are CLAY JACKSON looking for any opening, however slight, to pile down upon his team. A poor quarter ha.' lost countless football games. A good quarterback is essential to win. Clay is it good quarterback. He is a quick thinker. He acts quickly. He has developed a habit of doing things well and doing them quickly. A good trait. Clay’s ambition is to be a doctor when he becomes of age. He now is 15 years old and has before him a hard road. will overcome all obstacles, however, for he has in him the quality that denote^ success. He will win in whatever he un dertakes and humanity is the beneficiary of his determination to become a doctor. Good luck to you, boy.

April 12.—The stale depart- ( ment is preparing further representations to the British government requesting a j speeding up of the machinery of the prize courts. So far not a single American ship or cargo has passed through the British prize courts, although many have been held for months. One typical case is that of the steam ship Antilla, tied up at Dundee, since February 2t>, unable to get before a prize court. Her cargo consisted chiefly of cattle food consigned to Sweden. Both the Danish and British consulates in New York certified that everything in the An tilla' s cafgo was covered by the Swedish embargo and that none of the goods could be exported from Sweden to Germany. The state department felt that the Brit ish authorities should have ordered imme diate release of the vessel and her cargo. Nearly the same conditions are said to exist in the case of the American steamer Joseph W. Fordney, whose owners today appealed to the state department for her release. She was taken Into Kirkwall, although according to evidence before the department, she should not have been de tained. Notice was received today from the British government that in case contra band is found in the cargo of detained ships all of the expenses of loading and unloading and tockage will be charged to the shippers. In view of tlie wide range of the British contraband list few cargoes can hope to escape these charges. The note the state department probably will address to the British government in regard to detentions will remind the Brit ish government of the promise contained in the note transmitting the order in coun cil that everything possible would be done to avoid unnecessary Interference and de lay to American commerce. The demurrage charges in the case of some of the American vessels is very heavy, that of the Antilla amounting to about $1500 per day, and it is understood that the suggestion Mill be made that m here a vessel and her cargo are tlnally decided to be “inrecent.” the British gov ernment should meet this expense.
