To The New York Herald: Strictly speaking, there is no such thing as luck or fortune (fortuna.) The great religious writers and philosophers have exploded the idea that the world is formed and ordered by the fortui tous concourse and meeting of atoms, as Epicurus and his disciple Lucretius thought. The world is governed by wisdom, not chance. There is no such thing as luck, but there is such a thing as Providence. Providence is the divine foresight that orders tilings, and orders them aright, according to its own infallible wisdom. Men who arc not always able to 'discern the reason why a thing happens apply the term luck to some happy occurence that falls to some man's portion. Some bad men are rich and famous and apparently happy. Many good men arc poor and obscure and appar ently miserable. Man's wisdom is not always able to reconcile the many in consistencies and discrepancies of life. One of your co-respondents quotes from Ecclesiastes: "I returned and saw under the sun. that the race is not to the swifc, nor the battle to the strong, . . . but time and chance happencth to them all." "Time and chance" are not equivalent to "luck" here. The writer simply expresses what he has seen in the world of men, namely, that prosperity seems to pass by deserving men. lie docs not explain this condition of things or find fault with it. It remains for ireligious faith and true philosophy to explain these things as far as they can. We can find in other passages of the Bible keys to all these myster ies of life. One verse of Scripture can no more explain life than one window can make a house. If we would possess a true philosophy of, life we must study benpture as a whole. There is no such thing as luck. Never believe itl "It is lucky," says the envious and unsuccessful man. But do not permit your unbelief in luck to fill you with the idea that your own descrvings and merits have brought you your good things. "For who makcth thee to differ from an other? And what hast thou that thou didst not receive? now if thou didst receive it, why dost, thou glory, as if thou hadst not received it?" (1. Cor., iv 7.) "So then it is not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth, but of God that sheweth mercy" (Rom. ix., 10.) The Western Philosopher. 2 MILE LONG SMOKESTACK COOLED BY SMALL STREAM The heavy vegetation-killing acid fumes from a copper smelter in Wales are carried up the steep side of a mountain and discharged high above its summit by a smokestack which is' a novelty in chimney con struction, described and illustrated in the May Popular Mechanics Magaz ine. A near-by brook was diverted to flow along side the long tube, partially submerging it, thereby cooling and condensing most of the rich vapors upon its walls. That this 'is well worth while is demonstrated yearly at the time of cleaning, when a ton or more of high-grade metal is re covered.

CUTTING MEAT BILLS. American people ate 10 pounds less meat apiece last year, the consump tion of meat and lard being 154.3 pounds per capita, which cuts out meat rations pretty short when you consider there are 305 days in a year and that this country has 40 million wage-earners. Less, meat was produc ed, less exported and less consumed in the United States in 1920 than in either of the two preceding years. Beef consumption has fallen from 78 pounds 10 years ago to not quite 50 1-2 pounds. What with meat costing poor people too much and the market price of meat animals bankrupting stockmen, we are in a fair way to become a meatless nation. FOR WHICH RED FLANNEL ' IS THE ONLY CURE.

It generally pays to stake and prune the tomatoes grown in the small home garden because by this method the fruit is held oil the ground and is clean, a larger number of tomatoe plants can be grown on a given space and the fruit generally ripens earlier than it the plants are allowed to grow in the natural way. In prunning the plants all side shoots and suckers are removed, leaving only the main stem with its leaves and clusters of fruit. It is easy to determine which arc the side shoots and which arc the young blossom clusters bccau.se the shoots appear directly in the little pocket where the leaf joins the stein, while the fruit clusters appear on the naked side of the stem where there is no leaf. Pinch out the side shoots, but he careful not to injure the blossom or fruit clusters. Tomato stakes should he from 4 to (1 feet long and 1 to 1 1-2 inches through at the thickest part. They may he small saplings cut in the woods and sharpened at one end, or they may be split from a log that is free from knots. Sometimes strips of waste, material front a sawmill or planing mill, known as edgings arc used. It makes little difference so long as the stakes arc strong enough to support the plants and are inexpen sive. The stakes should be driven firmly into the ground, one on the north side of cacli tomato plant, and the plants tied to them once a week during the active growing period with soft cord or narrow strips of muslin Sometimes the tomato plants will reach the tops of the stakes and then hang over until the tip will touch the ground, clusters of fruit being formed along the stems. Twenty-five to ."10 tomato plants trained to stakes will supply the aver age family witli all the tomatoes need ed for use while fresh, alio for can ning.

PROHIBITION HERE TO STAY BUT NO ANTI TOBACCO CRUSADE. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch, one of those newspapers that are still gnawing a file in the matter of na tional prohibition, publishes a letter from a man signing himself "Dis gusted Veteran," the point sought being that the same forces that made prohibition possible arc now arraying; themselves in support of an anti-tobacco crusade. Nonsense. There may be men !md women who believe that tobacco should be treated in the same way as alcohol, but their numbers and in fluence are negligible. The argument r that mcir of science have made against alcoliol largely fails m the matter of tobacco, and the application of the rule of reason reduces the anti-tobacco crusade to an absurdity. There is not the remotest possibility of the use of tobacco being prohibited by law. Those who claim that there is are either selfdeccivcd, or are trying to deceive others And the Evening Post resents the assertion that the men who fought for America during the great war are sullen and dissatis fied over the coming of prohibition. Some of them, no doubt, are displeas ed, but no one expects to please everybody in so radical a change as ' prohibition has brought about. But there is no concerted action by vet , erans against prohibition, and there t will be none. I Prohibition has come to stay just , as ceitainly as the income tax. , Louisville Post.
