With out a Cut or Scratch FIGHT FANS SEE BIG FUTURE FOR THE KID BY H/C. HAMILTON (United Press Staff Correspondent.) New York,. Aliri —Several yours i(io ji. young electrician crawled Uiru tho ropes ol' a ring in Kansas (lily, Mo., and went. through the niotiuns of scrap with Sailor (irando. Previous lo the :1:IfM.*, Ihc youthful electrician had been earning a week at. ISxcelsior Springs, .Mo., by acting as a punching bug for Jim Flynn, the Pueido Fireman. Flynn was spending his afternoon bat luring the electrician's face, and ilie most en joy iblo part of the day—for Flynn •was tho fact that lie closed !boih his youthful oppom ill's eyes every after noon. Hut Dovore, the youthful electrician hung around Kansas City for a long time lighting now and then, and then pic-Icing up a little money. One night an old time light fan saw him in ac tion and. pointing his linger at tho husky youth, declared that there stood a future heavyweight champion of the world. "If he takes the right sort of care of himself and is given the right sort of management, he will be on top 'be fore many years have passed. Re member what I told you." Maybe the old fight fan made it a little strong, 'but it is interesting to note the climb of the youth. He came to New York and had ai few alleged tights around tne smalt clubs in the metropolis, and then one day they matched him with Jim Flynn. flynn grinned when he heard of the match. "That's the kid I used to spar at Excelsior Springs," he said. "He's got a stout heart, "but I'll b6at him sure." Devere was carefully conditioned for this bout. He went into it with in structions to use his left hand at ev ery opportunity on the fireman. It was the first, time he had ever at tempted to do any damaging punch ing with that hand. He used his left with a jah, and he hooked with it. Between times he rammed home his right with an upper cut that had Flynn's face split froni his forehead to his chin. In all his 'battles it is probable the Pueblo iron man never took a more thorough beat ing—and Devere, the former pupil of the formidable Flynn, left the ring without a scratch.

I lie automobile field kitchen is one that is made necessary by the swiftness with which armies in the field are transported and by the promptness with which these armies must be supplied with food.

Like most, modern kitchens, too, thill one boasts of ventilators, both at the sides and in the roof of the car. In deed, it would seem as If the English firm which invented this motor-kitchen simply made a practical, miniature edi tion of a most approved and modern type of hotel kitchen. Drop Use of Card.

Arthur Kehvyn-Brnwii. An event of immense importance to Americans is transpiring in tho Holy Land, following closely upon the conquest of liagrhul. it will mean the redemption of one of the richest and fairest, provinces in the world, once the scone of great com merce, now mostly a howling wilder ne"«. Great Britain intends to hold and develop the whole of Mesopotamia, from Basra to Ant inch, or Antaki, on the Mediterranean. The rich cities on the ancient trade route to India and Persia, Basra, Bagdad, Mosul, Babylon, Tadmor, or Palmyra. Dam ascus, Jerusalem and Keyreut. will soon resume their former import ance. Railroad communications will be made between them, roads will be built, and irrigation works construct ed. All the resources of modern civ ilization will be placed at their dis posal and there will be a great re construction. This will stimulate an extensive trade, of which America's share will depend alone upon the efforts made by our merchants to secure it. They can get all they want of it. The climate of the central parts is tropical and sub-tropical. When farming settlements are made there will be large populations in the cities along the rich valleys of the Tigris and Euphrates. The checkered history of Mesopo tamia and its renowned cities is due to the raBhness and neglect of its conquerors. When the cities and peoples were robbed and impoverish ed, their irrigation works were neg lected and the "Garden.of the World" quickly turned under the .scorching suns to a parched wilderness. In stead of supporting a large popula tion of happy people, and flocks and herds, it became the prowling ground of robber bands of Kurds and Bedou ins, of wild boars and asses.

Twenty years ago they laid plans for increasing their interests in Mes opotamia. Plans were drawn up for the irrigation of the upper Tigris valley. The town and district of Ko wcit, at the head of the Persian gulf, were acquired, and mining operatious were started in many localities. One of tho most extensive oil fields in the world is situated in southern Mesopotamia. This has been devel oped and is operated by the British government for fuel for the British navy. In the northern parts of the province valuable deposits of cop per, iron, coal and other commercial minerals occur. I British activities in these rich dis tricts attracted German competition, and a railroad was projected by the German government to run through the length of Arabia from Constanti nople to Bagdad. This road is al most completed. On a surveyed length of 1500 miles between Con stantinople and Bagdad, the rails have been laid over 1200 miles. The Taurus and Amanus mountains were tunneled, and from Jcrablus, where the road crosses the Euphrates, river connections are made with Bagdad. The British intend to consolidate their holdings in Mesopotamia and convert them into another Egypt. In the next few years we will witness great industrial and commercial de velopments there. As soon as the military defenses of Bagdad are secured, the city will lc placed in the hands of the British medical authorities, so that modern sanitary systems can be installed. It, will then be opened for commercial purposes again. American merchants will be enabled to trade there, as well as others. There is no reason for them not securing a large share of the city's foreign commerce. The imports are mainly cotton goods, machinery, paper and Ameri can novelties. But when the fertility of the Mesopotamia soil is restored and good government and transporta tion facilities are assured, this half way dominion between Europe and Asia will havcan extensive and rich commerce. The department of commerce at Washington is arranging to have an American trade commissioner report on the American trade outlook at Bagdad. CITY ORDINANCE.

A year ago hardly anyone seemed to want to give the released prisoner a Job. A year followed of Mr. Osborne nnd good times, and the great ehauge has coine. Today the special Employ ment secretary of the Prison Associa tion of New York says he is able to refute the statement frequently made that discharged prisoners are return ing to crime because nobody will hire them. O. F. Lewis writes in the Amer ican Review of Reviews. In July, 1916, he reported that every able bodied man that applied during the month of June, and was willing to work and take what was found for him, was placed within a f«w. days. Wages ran from $9 to $20 a week. One ex-prlsonec writes that he Is getting $18 a week as bookkeeper and general clerk, and is going to repay the expenses' "defrayed iuxmy behdlf." Another of the gray brotherhood siys that he has "suffered" an increase in salary and that he is not "kicking about the Saturday afternoon holiday that has ,becn dispensed with." Good-will toward the released pris oner is Spreading. Hundreds of New York merchants were asked last win ter to give employment to men jist out of prison. A manufacturer, having taken fly men, telephoned into the of fice, saying tfeat the mien were doing so well that he wondered if they hid not given false statements as to having had a prison record for the purpose of securing positions. The raife In the prisoner's behalf is not confined to any one state. Henry Ford has tt least 400 released prison ers In bls works at Detroit Miss (Catherine B.

In Kansas the prisoners are planning co-operative bureau. Many other instances might jbe cited. Immense Floating Workshop. A floating worshop lias been launched Ht Calcutta. The "Abydos," however,, is not a boat with some workshop quail ties she is a workshop with some boat qualities. Only In the leading iron foundries in Great Britain would any thing bigger or better bo seen than her machinery hall. AH sense of being cramped on board a ship is lost in the midst of this spacious and lofty cbam ber, with its steel shafting running from end to end on either side and pro pelling by numerous! connections of belting every imaginable kind of metal* working machine. To produce this "hall" three decks (or what would be three decks in an ordinary ship) have been thrown into one, two decks for the body space of the hall, and one deck for the dome space. She carries -a swinging crane capable of lifting 30 tons. Her complement consists of a crew of 100, about 150 unskilled labor ers, and '300 skilled Chinese artisans, each man individually picked. These are controlled by a staff of English en-1 gineers, and each officer is a mechan ical or electrical engineer of high status in bis own line of work. How to Test Diamond. The frequent deception of the pub lic in regard to the sale of jewelry and genuine stones In Great Britain has induced the authorities to issue a statement upon the accurate testing of diamonds, A number of instruc tions is given, including tlie follow ing formula: When diamond is quite clean and }ry carry out tho following experiment: Place on tho surfacc a tiny drop pf water.

From time to time, a story comes along from "Stomewhere in England," cr "Somewhere in France," or some where elsewhere, which shows that "the official routine of the official de partment" is receiving much biiifeting in these times. A certain commander on a certain front decided, after care? ful thought, that he needed certain things and needed them very much. He seiit his list to headquarters, and, after a long detey, came a sheaf of official forms full of detailed Inquiry as to why he wanted each thing lie had asked for. The commander thought over the matter for a day or two. Final ly he took his, courage in both hands, and a blue pencil in one of them, and, so the story goes. wrote across each of the form the legend, "I want these things because there Is a war on over here." He got them, without further question. Both Ways. "When the police reached the stolen deserted automobile the engine Itiil running." "Tes, and so are the thieves.1* Ampls Tim*.
