Advertising offices j ew \ or * Boston, Payne. Burns A Smith, Inc- WHAT PART did the cement trust play in the Goodrich highway program ? THE PUBLIC will agree that some measures should be taken to im prove the paving system in Indianapolis. IT OUGHT to become apparent to critics after while that the county commissioners do not intend to require road maintenance bonds. APPARENTLY the city council is not so pleased with Sam Ashby's “great victory” over the gas company! The Birth Pains of Progress The mo6t unsatisfactory thing of life is inexact science. It is a thing no one can escape and it continually deceives; for even the term, let alone the thing itself, is deceptive. All of the important matters of human life wherein the human element appears contain these inexact sciences and forever we are losing patience with them. These are often the butt of ridicule and the public fails to understand the immense constructive efforts they require, but sees only the failures or the peculiarities. Even a perspective of a few years apparently makes what was once thought to be absolute, to be indeed very relative. In law principles once taught are now thoroughly repudiated. There was recognized at one time the right of the railroad companies to give a lower rate or rebate to the large shipper. Some powerful companies grew great under this theory, but today a very heavy penalty is imposed for Just such action. Years ago the physician resorted to Dleeding, and then sulphur and molasses were favorites. Today we are told medical books of five years ago are out of date. Religious beliefs too are constantly subject to revision. It is perhaps due to this inexactness that the lawyer is maligned upon the stage, that the doctor is made ridiculous and that an element of bitter ness against religion enters into the heart of some people. After all, however, men are l'it men. and if they did not progress, if these sciences were as fixed as mathematics, the world would be at a standstill. All the derision and all the ridicule that is borne or has been borne by a Galilelo or a Hammerman and a thousand otner people of advanced mind is but the penalty which a backward human race exacts for new ideas and progress. Indeed it is the birth pain of progress. The Forgotten Dead Coincident with the news that Congress will be asked to appropriate more funds for the return of the bodies of soldiers from France, appears a small item from Hartford City stating that a cemetery is begging for an owner. It seems that the Wellman cemetery near Hartford City is regarded by its “owner” as having been sold to the city twenty-five years ago and he wants the city to clean it up. The municipality has no records of purchase and refuses to accept the responsibility. Here is a peculiar mix up, and one not consistent. We have, as Americans, great sentiment, but W 6 do not posses* consistency. The Chinese worship their ancestors. We forget them ail too soon. The good people near Hartford City are but slight exception to the rule. How true is the old saying, “So soon we are forgotten." The movement to return the bodies of our soldier heroes from France meets a desire, otherwise it would not be done. How soon, however, will the cemetery where they shall find their last sleep, be begging for an owner? Beyond doubt those who rest in the Wellman cemetery near Hart ford City once enjoyed the wealth of life and were loved as much as those dead soldiers. Now no one remains to do them honor. It Is hoped that after the final testing place of those brave boys is reached, the consecrated ground may always be hallowed, and that it shall never go begging for an owner. Not for Us! A large business house at Rochester, N. Y., has undertaken to conduct its affairs entirely without use of currency. It intends to use checks. The reasons assigned are to do away with robberies and to show that modern business may be conducted most efficiently without “small cl^pge.' It Is also hoped to increase savings. This may be viewed with alarm. It necessitates learning banking, book keeping, addition, and other things which few men and few women can do. Os course, any one can, with practice, write a check, large or stnall, but to write & good one at all times requires a genius. Then, too, anybody can take a check but always to accept a good one is the work of an artist yet to be discovered. How the street car conductors would be imposed upon in a crowd if there was no currency, and how much punishment would there be in church when the collection was taken, for every tight wad would be known by his check. Then the great Joy of having an extra dollar or two in the pocket or pocketbook would never be realized. A fat savings account, while good, does not appeal to the average person so strongly as the pleasure of actual possession. Make the money of leather, Iron, porcelain, other metals or paper, but let it be money, the kind that may be spent Instantly, instead of a cold check book. And Why Not? Forty people, headed by a fellow of the Royal Geographical Society of London, are fitting a schooner yacht to travel to the South Seas and there to live in tropical climes far from excessive taxation. They will secure an island, will avoid politics and be happy. At least the above is the program This reminds one of Robert Bur dett’s directions for being happy, though poor. He suggested going to some tropical country where 10 cents will buy enough clothes for an entire comic opera troupe. Why not avoid more than the excessive taxation, when the weather* is warm? If these English adventurers will but harken sufficiently back to nature, they can forego many of the trials to which flesh is heir. The balmy air of the tropics with the luxurious fruits so freely be stowed, blessed by the even temperature and kissed by warm breezes, appeal to the winter bound citizen of a country just paying off twenty-six billion dollars war debt and still in the hands of sundry profiteers. England is to receive an indemnity from Germany for her war fun, but America is to pay her bill in full. If the English desire to migrate is there any wonder we, who keep up the furnace, would like to join taem? Fire Prevention The efforts of H. 11. Friedley, State fire marshal, in holding a firemen’s convention and fire college at the Coliseum, State fair grounds, in the week beginning Nov. 29, are to be commended. The money expended by cities in sending delegates will be well spent indeed. The Immense and unnecessary fire loss of not only the State but the entire United States is appalling and the wise efforts of the fire marshal to minimize this deserves the hearty cooperation of all citizens. His work Is necessarily constructive and its effects cannot be immediately seen, but when the statistics for a few years are compared, the good results appear. So little is thought of a fire in the city that it requires a State or mu nicipal officer to warn the public where it is drifting. A home destroyed today assists in making more acute the housing problem; a factory burned means a great economic loss, even if insurance is collected.^ The great work of the convention, however, will be the fire prevention measures that are adopted or discussed. A little carelessness here and a little neglect there, a defective wiring, a faulty flue may eventually destroy a city—does not Chicago blame a cow for its great fire? With the growth in population, and the increase in complexity of our living conditions, the work of the fire marshal becomes more and more necessary. His work at times is not appreciated, but It da rital. The condF'.t of the office by Mr Friedley has been honest and (Amtaklng and has accomplished much good for the State.

WHEN A GIRL MARRIES A New Serial of Young Harried Lift By An „ L , a|o CHAPTER CII. “I understand. It was very sweet of you, Anne —and very delicate." I felt myself fiaming. Hushing with Joy at the first loving, intimate words Virginia had ever spoken to me. Be fore I could go on, I had to swallow a lump which seemd heaps bigger than my throat. “First, he talked a bit about people we both knew. I don’t Just remember”— When I said that I didn't remember, it was true. I was so Intent on Pat and Virginia that I completely forgot that Pat Dalton had talked at length of Evy, had warned me of her In her past relations to my Jim —and of her possible future relations to Neal and Phoebe. Now I wish had recollected all that at the time. * “After a bit he asked if I thought Jim could be friends with him, and I asked him if he thought that Would be loyal to you. He didn't answer. But I remember just how he acted, Virginia. He took his fingers off the stem of his glass and laid them fiat on the table. And he sat staring—staring at the back of his own hand.” “Pat would do that,” said Virginia, almost as if she'd forgotten I wa# there. "Or toss back his hair and smooth it with his left hand." “Then he said, 'Virginia—what does she say about me?' And I had to tell PUSS IN BOOTS JR. By David Corv. - Now, before I start tbis story, I must, tell you about three golden apples that were the cause of Miss At-a lan-ta-loslng the race. For it is very often that little things keep us from winning the big things we're after. Now the young man who was to run a foot race with Miss At-a-lan-ta, as I told you in the last story, was very much afraid he would be beaten, for she was swift of foot and had wou every race she had ever entered. So he weut to the temple of the Goddess Venus and begged hor to help him. And at once she walked into her gar den and from a tree with yellow leaves and yellow branches plucked three beau tiful golden apples and gave them to him. at the same time telling him to let no one know he had them, and when he had promised, she told him how to use them. And after that he hurried to the place where the race was to be held. Atul, oh my, there were thousands and thousands of people there to see the race, and little Pus* Junior had a front seat so he could see everything without' standing up on his tiptoes. Well, pretty soon the race started, and away went At-a-lan-ta and the young man, and before very long he was all out of breath, so he dropped one of the golden apple* and At-a-lan-ta ■topped to pick It up, and while she was doing this the young man kept on as fast as he could and so got way ahead of her. lint pretty soon she caught tip to him, so again he dropped a golden apple, and again this foolish girl Stopped to pick it utt. But, Just the tame as before, she soon caught up t<s him, so he dropped the third apple and it was right in front of the spot where little Puss Ju nior sat. “Don't stop! I>on't stop!” he called out; hut oh, dear me. At a Inn ta didn't hear him, or else she wanted that beautiful golden apple so much that she Just couldn't help It And then. Just because she stopped, the young man, nil out of breath, managed to win the race and enrry off the prize But what happened after that shows that At-a lan ta had a good disposition, for she wasn't angry in the least at bs- Ing beaten, but went up to the yonng man and told him so: and then h* thought It was so sweet of her that he asked her to bo his wife and they were TH® WHEN STORE him you’d never said a word. H!n voice was just—dean when he spoke again, Virginia. He said, ‘Jennie never mentions me. Jeanle—well, I might have known that. She wouldn’t,’ and that’s all, Virginia. He Just about sent me home after that. But as far back as I could see from the taxi, he 3tood with his head uncovered, staring after me. Oh, Virginia, Virginia, he suiters. I know he does. I Just want to take him In my arms and baby him—sometimes.” Virginia stared at me intently and a sparkle came into her eyoa. She even laughed a ltttie. “I wouldn’t do that—if I were you. Pat rather has that effect on women.’ But she said it almost proudly—not really resentfully at all. Then she went on dreamily: “So you did tell Pat my address after all. That was how he came to send me flowers—my roses." “No, I didn’t tell him. I never realty saw him to apeak to from that day until today—except Juat for a minute once on the avenue. But he was going to meet your candlesticks at Tom’s studio. So that's how he found out, I suppose." “Oh—Just by accident!" said Virginia. There waa a light of returning cold ness In her voice. I gathered my wits to combat that.—Copyright, 1920. (To Be Continued.) married, and Puss went to the wedding. And you may be sure if waS a grand affair, and At-a-lan-ta gave Puss one of the golden apples for his very own. But oh, dear me, something dreadful hap pened after that. Because the young man forgot to thank Venus for her help she changed them both into lions. And after that Puss went upon his way with a serious face, for he had learned two things, which were, first, to keep your mind on the thing you're after, and not to let anything turn yon from it; and second, never to forget to thank the one who has done you a favor.— Copyright, 1920.
