Major James H. McLaughlin, who

Major McLaughlin and Mr. Barry,

"Major McLaughlin was a great
man probably the greatest friend i
the Indian has ever had," said Mr.
Barry, Sunday, “lie knew every In
dian chief at every agency in the
United States and was popular with
every tribe of Indians."
Mr. Barry stated that he was n
close friend of Major McLaughlin all
the time they were stationed at
Standing Hock. For the lust few!
years the two have kept up a con
stant correspondence, Mr. Barry hear
ing from the Indian agent only four
weeks ago.
When Major McLnughlin visited
the Twin Ports he would call on Mr.
Barry. The last time he was here
was in the spring of 1015, Mr. Barry

honor at a banquet at the Kitchl

Petticoats Shouldn’t Bar You From Success
They Didn't Hinder San Francisco's First
Woman v City Attorney in Her Climb
From Poverty
San Francisco, Aug. 1. —The lad
der of success, to Mrs. Mary Rantz
Schwab, has been a series of strug-
Kl es and discouragements all the way
up from poverty.
Now, well on the way' in her up
ward climb to a set goal, Mrs. Schwab
sits at her desk as the first woman
assistant city attorney of San Fran
cisco and expounds this lesson from
her experience:
"Petticoats don’t get in the way of
a woman who really wants to suc
ceed.” ,
It's an even fight, she concludes,
with man and woman on equal
"It is not u ‘man’s world,*" she
explains. “If a woman has equal
determination, she has as good a
chance to win as has a man.
"But she must have patience and
the ability to keep the one goal in
view. Neither man nor woman has
the right to expect success without
effort, which may extend through
Feminine Throughout
The fqrceful personality of San
Francisco’s assistant city attorney
confirms this opinion. Mrs. Schwab’s
attire is essentially feminine. Her
brown hair is bobbed. Yet her fea
tures display that enviable character
istic of aggressiveness that has
brought her up to her present
height. I
From childhood, she hoped for
success as an attorney. Now that
she has tasted of it, she intends to
continue her way upward in the law,
with the hope ultimately to perforin
some big social service.

NANCY and Nick and Mister Sky
Bow slipped on a lot of banana skins
the bad old wizard threw down and
things did look bad for a minute.
The Twins remembered what Sky
Bow had told them. This. That if
the wizard (Cross Putch his name
was) saw them first, he would grab
his magic stick and say a charm and
turn them all into worms.
“Goodness!" thought Nancy when
she felt herself falling. "I’ll soon be
a worm. I wonder whether I’ll be
turned into aa earth worm or a fuzzy
And Nick was tninking the same
But Mister Sky Bow, smart little
fellow, wasn’t thinking of anything
so silly! He was thinking, “Just as
soon as old Cross Patch reaches for
his magic stick there on the table,
I’m going to grab him abound the
shins and do a little magic work my
self." 1
And he watched and watched.
Sure enough! Just as old Cross

Mrs. Schwab’s yearning to become
of real social service to humanity
springs from her own bitter expe
riences since she Was a tot of 4.
At that age she recalls fleeing
Russian persecution, under her fa
ther’s care, abandoning wealth and
property. America, the promised
land, opened to them after months
of privation and hardship, and the
Rantz family settled in Philadelphia.
Fahiily Support
But the promise of America was
far from becoming a realization.
Mary had to go out selling papers to
add to her father’s meager income.
As Bhe grew older, and moved to
Peoria, 111., she was destined to help
support a large family, even before
she could enter upon higher educa
tion. i
At 15, Mary left business school
as a bookkeeper and otftained work
in a grocery for $5 a week. That
hardly helped keep the wolf fr«pi
the door. But, after a night course
in stenography, she was able to find
a better position at $lO a week.
Thus she climbed slowly, courage
ously and by sheer grit to the point
at which she was able to struggle
through a night law course, while
she worked by day.
But this was not until she had
come to San Francisco as a stenog
rapher, had married Rudolph Schwab
in 1011 and had lost her husband by
death six years later.
Now, as first woman ever to hold
the position she is in, Mrs. Schwab
considers herself at last started on
her way to success.
Patch took a step to get his bad old
stick, didn't Sky Bow roll over and
grab him!
Down went the wizard like a ripe
Quick as a wink Nick jumped up
and grabed the magic stick.
“Take us all out of here and turn
old Cross Patch into a turtle,” he
And that’s just what happened.
And Cross Patch couldn’t follow, as
turtles move so slowly.
Then- the Twins and Mister Sky
Bow took the magic stick and made
everybody happy again.
The Glooms became Grinners at
once and grinned happily.
But the best part wag when they
went back to Rainbow Land. By one
wave of the wand they made the
Nosi« and Earsieg and Dummies and
Whirlic3 and everybody happy again.’
And Cross Patch stayed a turtle
for two weeks, when the Fairy Queen
turned him into a good fairy instead
of a bad one.

Since 1871 Deaths Have Ex
ceeded Births —Situation
Paris, Aug. I.—Th'e peril of a
greater, stronger Germany over
whelming a steadily weaker France i>y
sheer force of numbers, looms in
creasingly large in the pessimism of
French sociologists studying the
shrinking birthrate of their country.
The increase of 169,000 in popula
tion for 1020, small as it was, aroused
the hope of the government and the
public, for it was generally believed
that the rush of war-tired soldiers
and women, anxious to marry and
establish homes, was the turning
point. They have been disappointed.
The net excess of births over deaths
the following year was only 9,000 and
the results of last year, still being
tabulated, arc rather dreaded by rso
ciologists and economists.
President Millerand not long ago
spoke of the birth rate question ns
“that of life itself for France.” His
efforts, he Baid, were devoted to fur
thering the creation of homes and
the rearing of children.
France’s plight in a world of war is
likened to that of the little boy who
grows slowly while all his compan
ions develop like weeds. In the 16th
century France had half the popula
tion of Europe; at the end of the 16th
she had only one fourth, and today
she has little more than one-tenth.
Sinc4 1871 deaths have exceeded
births, and only immigration has
saved the race from rapid extinction
by a loss that frequently was a quar
ter of a million a year.
Whatever the reasons for the half
century of decreasing birthrate, the
present shortage of living quarters,
the vicissitudes of life, and the low
ered moral standards are blamed to
day by students for the condition
that persists in rfpife of a really na
tional campaign for more children.

One of the nobility who “felt that
