A PRAYER Simple Law of Life for All Teach ine that sixty minutes make fin hour, sixteen ounces a pound, and one hundred cents a dollar. Help me to live so that I may lie down at night without a gun under my pillow —un- fiaunted by the faces of those whom I have wronged. Help me to earn my meal ticket on the square and in conformauce with the Golden Rule. Deafen me to the jingle of tainted coin—to the rustle of unholy skirts. May I be blind to the faults of my fellows and see my own clearly. Cliiide me so that I may look across the dinner table at my wife and have jaothiug to conceal. ' Keep me yctmg —that I may laugh ayitil the children. Make me sympa thetic —that I may be considerate of the old. * When comes the day of drawn shades and fragrant flowers, of quiet footsteps and hushed voices, when the wheels crunch on the gravel walk and the neighbors whisper, “How Jiatural he looks!” —make the cere anon.v short and the epitaph simple: “Here lies a Man!” —George Lee, In Popular Magazine. Japanese Forecast Direful Race Trouble for the World —Fear an Armed Collision Relief that the next war will be the outcome of race prejudices is ex pressed by Yukio Ozalci, formerly minister of justice and a leading member of the constitutional party. Mr. Ozaki said that in his opinion the colored races, which steadily were de veloping their civilization, would de mand finally the same treatment as the white races, and that the result ■would be an armed collision. air. Ozaki recommended that Japan, acting on behalf of all Asiatic races, ‘should introduce the racial and popu lation questions for consideration and, if possible, secure a solution. In a country like Japan, where the popula tion is increasing with alarming rapidity, he said it was but natural that the surplus population should try to pbtain an outlet even by resort ing to arms. From Japan’s stand point, said Mr. Ozaki, the racial or population questions were more im portant than President Wilson’s "‘fourteen poinjts,” down for a basis for Germany’s surrender. These racial questions, he said, concerned the future of millions of souls in Asia. Mr. Ozaki warned the Japanese not to develop the German system of state organization, which in the war had proved to be a mere machine for de stroying civilization and for tramp ling under foot the rights of other na tions aud peoples. On the question of Japan’s occupation of the German South Sea Islands, Mr. Ozaki de clared that the United States should dismantle her forts in the Philippines and Hawaii and that this would be more important for Japan than the taking over of the South Sea islands. Chinese Children Sold as Low as Twenty-Five Cents China’s appalling poverty is tradi tional. The average man and woman goes through life with only an occa sional relief from the pangs of hun ger, says Frederick Moore in World’s Work. Tens of thousands of people die annually from starvation. Moth ers in the poorer sections of every town and village destroy female babies because they are unable to feed them. Sometimes the parents cell them into slavery or dishonor. In times of drought and famine a regu lar traffic is conducted in children generally by boat along the canals *md rivers. The price goes at times ns low as 25 cents for a healthy child, nothing being paid for a sickly one. .Under ordinary conditions a strong young girl will bring anywhere from ten to a hundred dollars or more. In ordinary times a regular practice of Stealing children prevails in some re gions. They are conveyed, generally In hoots, to the large cities and sold privateiy. Soldiers Overseas Safe From Winter Hardships— Have Supply of Clothes Mothers, sisters and sweethearts in America need not worry about pro tection of their soldiers in Europe against the rigors of winter, writes a Paris correspondent. The quarter master’s corps specialists in France declare that the boys are better equipped than the majority of them ever were in civilian life. Each soldier has two pairs of heavy nail-clinched and dubbed shoes which are impervious to water, five pairs of wool socks, three suits wool underwear, two complete wool uni forms, two wool O. D. flannel shirts, one short but heavy overcoat, trench style, and one pair of wool knit spiral puttees ten feet long. The quarter master’s corps estimates that the aver age soldier campaign wears out one pair of trousers every two months, and makes provision on this basis, al though the normal life of a pair of breeches is six months. Every soldier has also an overseas cap that has a felt protector to pull down over his ears. He is not allowed to wear the old issue of campaigif hat that his folks at home lire used to seeing. He has wool gloves and one-finger leather mittens over them and each soldier is provided with at least three blankets ..and a waterproof slicker or raincoat. In addition to all this every soldier on outdoor duty has a leather waist coat to wear beneath his overcoat. This leather waistcoat is newly is sued and much admired. • Idle Soldiers in Europe Require Entertainment and Diversion More Than Ever The close of the war does not mean that the need for theatrical entertain ers to entertain American troops in France has ended or even diminished. On the contrary, it is greater than ever. It is obvious that many Ameri can soldiers will remain in Europe for a long time. With idle time on their hands, lacking the excitement and ex altation of battle, they .must have clean, wholesome entertainment. GOOD . JOKES / w* Husband’s Description.

SOME POSTSCRIPTS A novelty for golfers is a score card that can be strapped to a wrist. Casein is obtained from milk by electrolysis with a method of French invention. The air in anew automobile muffler is kept in motion by fans belted to the drive shaft. Natural gas has been discov ered in Holland in sufficient quantity to supply a small com mune. A pump has been invented in Europe in which explosions of a mixture of gas and air operate directly against the water with out the employment of a piston. So the Young Men’s Christian asso ciation and America’s Over There Theater league, which have co-oper ated in sending entertainment units abroad, are now expanding their ef forts. James Forbes, the playwright, accepts applications and organizes units. “From July 30 to November 9 we sent 102 entertainers abroad,” Mr. Forbes announces. “We will continue to send as many as we can until the last American soldier is out of France. Now that the fighting is over, they need amusement and diversion more than ever, and they keep urging and urging and urging us to send more players.” Hitherto the performers sent abroad have been practically all vaudeville players. There were several reasons for this. Transportation was limited, so the traveling companies had to be small and they could not carry the scenery and costumes necessary for dramatic productions. From now on, however, Mr. Forbes says the soldiers will have drama as well as vaudeville. Trailer Makes Touring Car Answer Purpose of a Truck A two-wheeled trailer which is de signed to make the touring car ‘an swer the purpose of a truck for light hauling, has been found especially valuable for merchants and dealers called upon to deliver many small loads which might be attended to while taking orders along the route. The coal truck is a two-wheel semi trailer, which couples to the car by means of a rocking fifth wheel on the rear of the car. This is covered, when not in use, by a metal boot, such as used on runabouts. The semitrailer is of rather an unusual design. It can be unloaded quickly by turning a crank which operates a ratchet, and this deposits the load in the desired spot by tilting the funnel shaped body. This body swings upon a curved flange, one on each side of the metal body. A few turns of the crank bring the body back to posi tion. American Indians Aided and " Profited by the World War The American Indian by enlisting in the army and navy, by subscribing lib erally to the Liberty leans, by increas ing the production of foodstuffs on In dian lands and by contributions to re lief agencies greatly aided the United States and the allies in winning the war, declared Cato Sells, commissioner of Indian ajTairs, in his annunl report. Mr. Sells said that out o£ 33,000 eligi ble for military duty, more than 0,500 Indians entered the army, 1,000 en listed in the navy and 500 more in other war work. More than 6,000 of the enlistments were voluntary. Lib erty bonds were bought, Commissioner Sells said, until Indians now hold the equivalent of one SSO bonds for every man, woman and child of their race in the nation. Through it all, Commis sioners Sells said, anew view of life and his responsibilities is coming to the Indian.

AT MATCH WITH WELKER COCHRAN s|l< \y!J>?Fh 11 ■A- • ' §|j (Of* - _ Wllklr Cochran /CHAMPION HOPPE AND WELKER COCHRAN. / Willie Hoppe had a good reason for making conditions that precluded his meeting Welker Cochran in an exhibi tion billiard match, in the recent cam paign for the United War Work fund. Hoppe, or his manager, R. B. Benja min, knew the speed at which Coch ran was playing. Welker Cochran showed in his match in New York with Ora Morningstar, the recreation’s star, that he has improved rapidly in the last six months and is entitled to meet Hoppe for the world's champion ship. Cochran’s Big Score. George Sutton was defeated by Hoppe in Chicago in the match in which Hoppe made his best showing. In this match Hoppe defeated the vet eran and averaged 57.7 In 1,500 points. Cochran laid this mark in the shade when he averaged 60 for the last 1,800 JACK COOMBS MADE MANAGER Veteran Pitcher Accepts Terms to Lead. Philadelphia National League Ball Team. John W. Coombs, veteran pitcher, Who was with the Brooklyn team last season, has accepted terms to manage the Phillies next year. ✓•Coombs, it is stated, will receive a salary of $7,- 000, with a bonus if he succeeds in piloting the team to the top of the league race, or to a place among the leaders, Coombs will be expected to rule the Phillies with more of an irpn hand than was wielded by Pat Moran, whom Manager Jack Coombs. he succeeds. President Baker now ad mits that the reason that he let Mdrnn out was that the latter did not main tain proper discipline among the play ers. He also complains that Moran did not reside in Philadelphia in the winter time and even lived outside the city during the summer months. IS NOT STRONG FOR SPORTS President Schurman of Cornell Uni versity Says We Should Give Boys Military Training. Jacob Schurman, president of Cor nell university or something, opposes the idea of Young America going in so strong for sports and says we ought to give the boys military training in stead. Well, that’s what the kaiser gave his boys in Germany for 40 years and then when the test came the American baseball and football play ers and so on made the goose-steppers look like a collection of brewery hands trying to do a hundred-yard dash.

Willtl Hoppe points of his 3,600-point game with Morningstar. Cochran made a run of 286 to finish one 300-point block, then started the next block with a run of 21, giving him a high run of 307 for the match. He also showed runs of 252, 247 and 225. Ift the last 11 300- point blocks Obchran did not fail to ,muke one run of 100. Cochran's best run on a Detroit table was 222 in his match with Morningstar last year, while the best Hoppe has ever shown Detroit fans is 211. Cochran Improves. Cochran’s playing in the ' last months surprises the billiard fans. For several years he has been regard ed as a good mechanical player, but lacking in billiard temperament and a poor money player. In his 1,800-point match with Morningstar last winter he averaged around 28.

GOLF SPORT IS DUE “ FOR BANNER SEASON Champion Ouimet Looks for Busy Time in 1919. Thinks End of War Will Have Big Effect of Boosting Affairs of Links —Expects to Compete in Na tional Open and Amateur. Golf is due for its biggest year next Reason, in the opinion of Francis Oui met, former national titleholder and present Western amateur champion. With all the new faces and the old boys keener than ever to get into the game seriously again, after being more or less shut up for a year, 1919 shapes up to him as the banner year in the history of the royal and ancient game. * Ouimet can see no prospect of a letup in his army work, figuring that his branch of the service will be busy for some time to come. He does ex pect, however, that conditions will be such that he can play a lot of golf next season. In 1918 he played little, com paratively speaking, though at the end of the season his game w T as all }ie could desire. The Western champion says he got so, after winning two national events, that he hardly cared what happened so far as his game was concerned when Francis Ouimet. the United States Golf association de* dared him ineligible to compete as an amateur. Now, however, with peace in the land and his amateur status no longer questioned, he has the fever again. He is eager to cut loose and looks forward to playing in the big events of 1919, more especially the national open and amateur, If they are held.
