Small of Illinois was indicted on a charge of illegally converting to his own use in terest earned on state money while he was treas urer of the state. Or in other words, he made money for himself with funds whose earning power belonged to Illinois. Many persons have had the idea that ths charges against him, and his opposition to arrest on the theory that "the king can do no wrong, vere features of a political brawl between his friends and opponents. Under our form of government Gov. Small is innocent until proved guilty, but Illinois rightly feels humiliated over his claim of immunity to arrest because he is the chief executive of th state. Circuit .Tudge Smith paid little attention to Gov. Small's argument and ruled that he is sub ject to arrest, just as is any other violator of the law. In his opinion, the judge ruled that .there is no such thing as the "divine right" of kings and that the king has no counterpart in Illinois :He also held that it is beyond the scope of the governor's power to call state troops to shield him from arrest. One is tempted to question the common sense of a governor who advances the puerile argu ments of Gov. Small to avoid arrest. The people of Illinois have enough respect for their state, we believe, to feel that the rights of Gov. Small have nothing to fear from the judicial processes of the commonwealth, and that if he is innocent, a jury of his peers will vindicate his probity in office. His course prior to the decision of Judge "Smith was a foolish one for an innocent man to follow. The question of whether he embezzled public money is a simple one for a jury to answer. The accused will have the advantage of every rule established for the protection of a defendant, and if the charges are unfounded, it will not take the jury long to find out. church in a sermon before the New Jersey camp meeting last Sunday. When a bishop of the largest denomination in the United States makes a sweeping statement like this one, most of us sit up to take notice. Bishop Berry is in a position to have first-hand knowledge of the facts. "What is wanted," he said, "is not more churches. It is a mistake to think so, and a greater mistake to say so in public The one real need of the time is not a greater number of churches, but more Christians and more Chris tianity. Many churches would be improved if their membership were reduced by 50 per cent. That would eliminate the non-Christians and give Christianity a better chance to serve. There are plenty of churches sometimes I feel convinced there may be too many. But there is a shortage of Christians and a scarcity of genuine Christian ity. Give us more Christians and we can get along beautifully with the churches we have." If Bishops Berry is right in his observation that half of the members of the Christian churches are only nominally disciples of Christ, the truth will come as a shock to many who are deploring the alleged paucity of churches and their membership. If drives to get new members have increased the number of worshipers without making them believers, Bishop Berry has brought a strong in dictment against the church. The average man would hesitate to make such a sweeping asser tion. Bishop Berry has had opportunity to ob serve and to study the make-up of congregations all over the country, and perhaps he is right. His judgment was declared openly. If he misstated facts and drew wrong conclusions, better in formed churchmen should take up the challenge. Movie of a Man Enjoying Results of Two Weeks' Rest Christians Who Aren't Christians "Many churches would be improved if their membership were reduced by 50 per cent," de clared Bishop Perry of the Methodist Episcopal Why a Boss? Because efficient and satisfactory work seems impossible without his presence. The per centage of workers who need bosses is surpris ingly large, say production managers. Millions of dollars are spent for the supervision of negli gent and careless workers. If they were 10,0 per cent perfect, the boss would cease to exist. "We all aspire to progress," says a writer in Forbes Magazine, "or at least we ought to. Well, we are little likely ever to reach the position of a boss until we first cease to need a boss. If you demonstrate to your " employer and keep on demonstrating, if need be, for a very long time that he doesn't have to employ anyone to keep you up to the scratch, he is likely to conclude some fine day that you don't need supervision and are capable of supervising others." When inefficiency was at its height in the United States one large automobile concern had to hire one boss to every three to five men. Through the elimination of inefficient and lazy workers, the same firm today has one boss to every 20 men. r - two w of THE RETURm Terrible paims whej Torture - 1 8tT AHeAD oPi Me after Two vveeKS sm-iMG voujh , GeTTiNG rrtW-oo! 1 BUT txk it ' TV 1 MY . 1 -cAsr mama oh- ool ) f r V back! y i i u v H AMDS' U HANDS GReETlNfi y VMY 3M0UC06J An0 fiHoytp6R5 YW'Rf ftf66fo, MO PAROXYSMS IN TREATMENT. 1 " 1 - ' ' - .. - ., . ... ., - - ... -. -- - - .. , : 1 ' II J Good E By ROY K, vening MOULTON IT 18 STRICTLY ENFORCED.

STICH THE MEAL TICKET OF IT What is the relation between education and money making? A rather impertinent question, some professors may think, and iust as illogical; since education is not intended to be a tool or a means to make money. Primarily, education widens a man's sympathies, broadens hi3 interests, forever reveals life's new enjoyments and bestows the pleasures derived from the many things of beauty and culture which to the untutored are a closed book. But authoritative facts and figures show that in addition education is a dominating element of success. FOR ' I If uneducated, the average man has only one chance out of 150,000 to ' make good. . ! With a common school education he has four chances. With a high-school education he has thirty-four chances. And with a college education, Thomas A. Edison's views to the con trary notwithstanding, he has 800 chances. Education, therefore, is not a luxury; it is In every sense of the word a compelling necessity; it is an investment which pays dividends as long as a man lives. A century or even fifty years ago the three R's sufficed. To be successful, men did not need more because competitors did not know more. But Just as success has been graduated from the general store In a one horse town to International organizations and chain establishments with links in every city of our land, as railroads and automobiles have supplanted the stage coach and the horse car, as efficiency has done away with slip shod, slovenly management and science has ousted superstition, so educa tion has displaced ignorance. This does not mean that a college degree or any degree of learning guar antees a meal ticket there are many A. B.'s and M. A's with ASS written all over them. But as a general rule, the chap who has gone to the trouble and expense of acquiring an education has the enthusiasm and the energy to work, and because of his training and kiowledge he will work better and more pro ductively than he otherwise would or could.

"Take It", "Up" YOUR. PRESENCE "Without the rich heart," says Emerson, "wealth is an ugiy beggar." In what other way would anyone want to be rich, anyway? And yet, sad as it seems, this sort of wealth goes a-begging every day. There are not many men, of great money wealth, in whose pres ence I am any too happy. There seems too much an atmosphere of apology there, of uncomfortableness. But in the presence of a per son whose total and greatest wealth lies in richness of heart, you feel melted Into all that he is. You want to be near him and quite near at that. One bf the servants In the household of Wendell Phillips used to say that there was more music in the footsteps of this noble man than -in the strings of a beautiful instrument. The physical frame of a man or woman is a wonderful affair. We know all too little of its power and influence, its possibilities and wonders. You know that there are those to whom you instantly are at tractedeven before a word Is spoken. Their very presence has brought "that something" which words are unable adequately to ex plain. And there are those on sight, whom you would not trust or want around. You can make your presence a real benediction in this world. You can make people glad that you are alive. All you have to do is to plant the garden of your soul with the right seeds. I have a friend in whose presence I always delight. He rarely has a nickel to his name. He isn't any too particular about his man ner of dress. But he has a mind that climbs! And so I like to be with him. His presence is always welcomed. Sometimes he comes into my office when I am exceedingly busy. But I just stop everything and tell him to take a chair and make himself at home and then I go right on about my work happier that he came. , A woman once told me of a man whose personality was Imme diately felt on entering a room, but that you sort of shuddered knowing that he was there. You never see a lot of big dogs following a little dog on the street. And yet you often see a whole community of little dogs following a big dog as he saunters, along. The idea is that strength is always looked up to. Big presence demands attention and admiration. Attain the rich heart and your presence will be advertised far and wide! Answers to Questions OLD READER (1) Please tell why the Turks in their religion have great respect forr the ancient Hebrew prophets? The Mohammedan re ligion contains many Old Testament elements, and its founder accepted many of the prophets in his religion. That accounts for the respect they show to the prophets. (21 Please tell the meaning of "Ribacra" We have been unable to find its meaning. Can a reader of the column help? CONSTANT READER. Please tell me the birthplace of Roger Williams, the colonist of Rhode Island, city and county of England? The best we could find is Wales, and historians differ as to the year of his birth. If you inquire in the reference room of the Morrisson-Reeves library, they may be able to supply you with ex tensive biographies that will give the data. X. Y. Z. If "Housewife" will place each roller of her ice box in a small pan of water, she will not be bothered with ants. It is much more conveni ent .than placing powder around. Question Will you please give mo some information about the "Star of Bethlehem"? It appeared about 11 years ago and at that time there was a great deal about it in the papers. How often does it appear? We have no information onthis question. Who can answer it? J. A. N. What is the latitude and longitude of any point in Richmond? How are observations taken inland to determine latitude and longitude? The latitude of the Earlham observa tory is 39 degrees 50 minutes and 26 seconds. The longitude is 5 hours 33 minutes and 52 seconds west of Green wich. Observations inland are taken by telescope and transit. On sea they usually are taken by sextant.

The young are vain and. giddy, they're blowing in their mon, and Benjamin and Biddy have naught in view but fun. There's no high aspiration, the younger bunch among; and we, in indignation, forget the young are young. When I was one and twenty, and Jane was seventeen, we wanted fun a-plenty, and then some more, 1 ween. And we went pleasure riding, behind my old bay mare; romance was then abiding around us everywhere. But now I'm old and dotty, and when the young whiz by, I think their con duct naughty, and heave a heavy sigh. "To what is this world coming?" I cry aloud; "gadzooks, when kids in cars go humming, instead of reading books? Oh, whither are we drift ing?" I murmured with a tear, when. I see youngsters lifting their stein of kickless beer. It keeps my spirit fret ting, so I am all unstrung; and I am still forgetting that young folks must be young. Thi3 world would swim in glory, and all things would be gay, if little boys were hoary and little girls were gray. But youth must have its inning, its laughter must prevail, and age must have its spinning of le gends sad and stale. Dinner Stories President Busby of the Chicago City Railways said of a motion picture censor the other day: "The man is of his kills and he's killing many a good firm, let me tell you remind me of the woman at the military ball. "A lady at a military ball came upon her pretty daughter as the girl was discussing a fist fight which had oc curred in the supper room between two lieutenant aviators. " 'They did go for each other, didn't they?" the girl said. 'What was the casus belli?' "Here it was that her mother, censor-like, butted in. " 'Mildred,' she said sternly, 'how often have I told you always to say stomach or abdomen?'" Who's Who in the Day's News IT. GOV STEBUNtf LIEUT. GOV. FRED STERLING Lieut. Gov. Fred E. Sterling of Illi nois, who has been indicted with Gov ernor Small on charges of embezzling public funds and conspiracy to de fraud the state, leavened his newspa per career with politics. From the time when, as city editor of the Rocli ford Daily Regis-ter-G a z e 1 1 e , he functioned as al derman in that city while guiding the destiny of his local staff, he has dabbled in ballots. Sterling's for bears were among the first settlers in Illinois. His great grandfather, Daniel Sterling, together with the latter's son. Major James Sterling, arrived in Whiteside county from Pennsylvania in 1837. Both help ed to build the old Illinois and Michi gan canal, whose banks are now moss grown and crumbling.
