BELIEVE RICE HAS A SCUL Fop That Reaon Javanese lalandert Perform Ceremony Which They Call Wedding. Rice is the mopt important food product of the island of Java. The islander believe that rice has a soul. In ortlor to keep on good terms with the "rice soul," prayers are offered to the rice plant, and offerings of fruit and flowers are made to it. One f the prettiest ceremonies of the island is the "wedding of the rice," a make-believe marriage ceremony which takes placo every year at har vest time. On the 'lucky" day the Dookoon calls the relatives and" friends of the owner end lends them into the field. They are all in holiday dress and wear garlands of flowers about their heads and bodies. The Dookoon se lects two stalks of rice of the same length and thickness, to represent the bride and groom. Then four other stalks, two to represent the bridesmaids and two to represent the best man, aro selected. The "bridal party" Is smeared t ith yellow unguent, decorated witht garlands of flowers, shaded from the eun with a palm leaf awning, and the etalks are cut around them. After a great feast the party sets out for the granary, where the bridal party is locked for 40 days to denote the passing of the honey moon. WAS NEVER BORN , ; Teacher Where were you born. Jimmie?

About half of these cars are believed to be owned' by farmers, although there aro no actual figures as to distribution. A.t any rate he, country is on an automobile basis, and those alarming statisticians, who are forever trying to show by figures that the national income is liot largo enough to buy tires and gasoline, might as well throw away their lead pencils and begin to worry about something else. We are going to keep our cars, and buy more. That is settled.

Ac cording to a statement published by the bureau of mines, the total loss from this cause throughout the country, with aluminum at its pres ent price, amounts to $CO0,00O. The bureau has published valu able suggestions for minimizing this loss. The main causo of the troublo seems to be the lack of ready coales cence of the metallic globules, and this means that the problem is one of colloid chemistry aplied to metals. Washington Star. EDITOR IAIVISD0M -"Are you working ou somo heavy editorials today ?" "Yes," replied the editor of the Chipgcrsville Clarion. "I thought I would tell the coal operators how to put the coal industry on a paying basis, point out the fundamental weakness in the present way of op erating the railroads and suggest a solution for the financial problems of Europe. With those matters out of the way, I'll probably step down the street and see if I can stand off my landlord for another week."

Nearly 8,XX) boys and girls, yoiuitf men and women, coming from almost every county In the State, have been students at Missouri Valley College In the third of a century it has been es tablished. Many pulpits of Missouri and other states are 'occupied by Mis souri Vulley graduates, and over 200 teachers of high schools and other col leges were trained In this school.

Preacher Shortage Is Acute There are 78 fewer employed pastors In the Presbyterian Church, U. S. A., In Missouri than there were five years ago, and the situation Is an alarming one, with 150 vacant pulpits und the supply of ministers short throughout the entire church, according to a mes sage sent to the churches of this state in the half-million dollar campaign for endowment of Missouri Valley College, Marshall, Mo., by Robert A. Guthrie, a buslneses man of Macon, Mo., who Is moderator of the Synod of Missouri. In 1017, Guthrie states, there were V.2a pastors and stated supplies In the state, as shown by the minutes of the General Assembly, while the minutes of this year show only 2"1. That the shortage of preachers throughout the entire church Is an acute one, Guthrie proves by the church statistics of this year, which show that there are 2,024 vacunt churches. Reports of other danon inatlons show ihat the situation n not one peculiar to the Presbyterian Church atone, but that all ate sufTedng to a ;-reaier or- lesser degree, on account of the lack of trained leaders to man the Kreat number of churches that are pustorless.
