the street with the stamps in their
possession. They soon confessed that
they had stolen the stamps of the
Canon City Fruit Growers’ Asocia

stolen the Ford car which they had
from in front of the church in Canon
City. They would have taken a Max
well, they said, but it was locked

Wealthy Londoner to Subscribe to
Loan and Turn Back
London, England.—A wealthy man
of London, who signs himself simply
as “F. S. T.,” has written to one of
the newspapers, declaring his Intention
to subscribe to the victory loan in the
sum of $750,000 and then turn the
bonds back to the government for Im
mediate cancellation.
'Today on the eve of peace,” writes
F. 8. T., “we are faced with another
crisis, less obvious, hut none the less
searching. By natural reaction not
unlike that which led to the excesses
of the restoration after the reign of
the Puritans, all classes are In dan
ger of being submerged by a wave of
extravagance and materialism.
• 'The wealthy classes know the dan
ger of the present debt. Let them Im
pose upon themselves, each as he Is
able, a voluntary levy. It should be
possible to pass Into the exchequer
within 12 months *-rch a sum as would
save the taxpayer £50,000,000 ($250,-
000,000) a year.”

Anderson cast the shark tackle over
side. The shark, seeing the wriggling
bluefish, made immediately for It.
More bait was heaved In the vi

hook and in less time than it takes

THE $1,000,000 LIBEL CABE
Noted Divine Says If Manufacturer's
Theories Are Anarchistic Then
He Is In Danger Of Becom
ing Anarchist Himself.
ML Clemens, Mich. —The Chicago
Tribune rested its defense in the
$1,000,000 libel suit which Henry Ford
has brought against it after spending
seven weeks and two days in attempt
ing to prove that it was Justified in
calling the manufacturer an "anar
chist. The 12th week of the trial
opened with Ford counsel offering re
buttal testimony against The Tri
bune’s defense.
The first witness for Mr. Ford wax
the Rt. Rev. Charles D. Williams, D.
D., Episcopal bishop of Michigan, who
appeared on the stand in rebuttal of
the testimony of Prof. J. S. Reeves,
professor of political science In the
University of Michigan who had pre
viously testified that Henry Ford’a
views were distinctly anarchistic.
Bishop Williams said that Mr.
Ford’s views were far from being
anarchistic and were, in fact, Chris
tian, common and often commonplace.
The Bishop refused to be led oy
Tribune counsel in his answers and
insisted on telling "the whole truth.”
Asked whether he thought Henry
Ford’s declaration that all armies
should be disbanded, all navies de
stroyed and all material of war con
verted into commerlcal implements
was anarchistic, the witness answer
Would Be Good World.
”1 could quote a half-dozen pas
sages from Scripture that express al
most that idea. I should say that the
main theme of these statements by
Ford are distinctly Christian,
commonly preached in Christian pul
; pits and that if they were lived up to
I this would be a pretty good Christian
"Bishop.” asked Tribune counsel,
“do you believe that Mr. Ford has
quoted, 'patriotism is the last resort
of a scoundrel.’ ”
“I have often said so,” responded
the witness. "I have often seen it so."
Concerning the doctrine of non
! resistance Bishop Williams declared
he did not believe In such a theory
but that many Christians did.
"It is the belief of anarchists.” said
Tribune counsel. •
"Yes and the belief of Christiana”
“Will you be good enough to ans
wer the question,” retorted counsel.
"Anarchists say that and Christ
ians say that. I am afraid lam going
to tell the whole truth.”
"Now Bishop—”
Would Tell Whole Truth.
"I am going to tell the whole
"You are telling something I have
not asked you to tell.”
"You have not asked me for the
whole truth. I have to follow my con
science. I am a simple man.”
'*T am afraid,” continued the Bishop,
"that if this is anarchy I agreo with it
Ford counsel then called William
A. Dunning, professor of history and
political philosophy in Columbia Uni
versity, to testify concerning Mr.
Ford’s theories and utterances.
"When Henry Ford,” said counsel,
"said that we should stop talking a
bout one factory, one state and one
country and begin to talk about the
world, was he preaching the doctrine
of anarchy?"
"No that Is the general thought of
cosmopolitanism human inclusive
ness; it has permeated all speculation
on political philosophy ever since
there was such a philosophy.”
"Is there anything peculiarly anar.
chistlc about it?”
“Is it In any way essential to ana--
"Mr. Ford also said that he believed
humanity could make mistakes but
could do nothing worse; he said he
believed everything tended toward
the good, and that even the terrible
world war would result in blessing to
the world. Is there anything anarchlstlo
about those Ideas?”
“They were commonplace before an
anarchist was ever heard of. The
idea that man Is naturally good is
the basis of Plato’s morals. It has
permeated moral philosophy ever
Prof. Dunning was then asked to
run through the articles and inter
views sponsored by Henry Ford and
indicate the portions which would
l convince a critical examiner that Mr.
Ford was not an anarchist.
The witness promptly pointed out
numerous references to the govern
ment and to the use of the ballot
which showed, he said, that Mr. Ford
believed m the orderly proce—ee of
government and therefore could not
be an anarchist. In no writing or
Interview, he said, could he find a
single indication that Mr. Ford was
an anarchist, either in the common
or philosophical conception of that

By Charles B. Going
If you could cast 4way the pain.
The sorrows and the tears,
And let the joys alone remain
From all departed years;
If you could quite forget the sighs
And recollect the song—
What think you: would you be as
As helpful, or as strong?
If you could lay the burden down
That bows your head at whiles,
Shun everything that wears a frown,
And live a life of smiles—
Be happy as a child again,
As free from thoughts of care—
Would you appear to other men
More noble or more fair?
Ah, no! a man should do his part
And carry all his load.
Rejoiced to share with every heart
The roughness of the road.
Not given to thinking overmuch
Of pains and griefs behind.
But glad to be in fullest touch
With all his human kind.
A11 packages of fish must be le*
gaily tagged. You can buy the tags
at this office.
