Simple Law of Life

one hundred cents a dollar. Help me
to live so that I may lie down at night

Help me to earn my meal ticket on

Deafen me to the jingle of tainted

May I be blind to the faults of my

Japanese Forecast Direful

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

Soldiers Overseas Safe
From Winter Hardships—

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
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

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.

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

Willie Hoppe had a good reason for
making conditions that precluded his
meeting Welker Cochran in an exhibi

Hoppe, or his manager, R. B. Benja
