Why hi th* World Don’t Frenchmen OW« Proper Pronunciation to Their Absurd Words? Take the city of Troyes, favorably known throughout the A. K. F. as u practically M.

Naturally, any human being would pronounce it to rhyme with “noise.” and go on hia way rejoicing in the knowledge of a good deed well per formed. Xot so the frisky prof. He rails it “Twa,” though why and wherefore le bmi Dieu alone knows. But if you want to get even with flic f. p., try him out with a regular word with plenty of “wV and “h's" and “til’s” in it. “Whether” is the cat's fur, as the army expression almost has it. Tackle him with “whether" and watch him gargle and stammer nut! sizzle and finally turn up his toes and pass away while somewhere in tiis in sides are still resounding ilie last, de spairing notes of his infernal inter pretation of a good, Christian word into “vay-zaio-r-re.” “Vay-zair-r-re Shade of Babel: Now. as regards tbe matter of spoil ing.

DENMARK TO BE REPUBLIC? According to Report*, the Little Coun try May Abandon the Monarch ical Principle Soon. \ews dispatches from Copenhagen state that there is a possibility of the establishment of a republic in Don mark, the little country that has been a monarchy since King Henlfdene ruled the country in 400 A. D. Denmark Is today a limited monar chy. ruled by King Christian, who di vides his power with the two houses of parliament. During the war i; suf- '< fered heavily in both its leading indus tries, dairying and the merchant ma rine. Many Dauish ships were sunk by U-boats despite their neutrality, and the large herds of cattle that had supplied a large pifrt of Europe’s hut ter and cream were killed for food. Denmark has a population of 2.f>(hi. 000. a large part of whom live on small farms. Its area is 14,829 square miles, slightly larger than the state of Mary land. It is densely populated, with 10.* people to the square mile on the main land and 275 to the square milt* on the many islands along the coast. Copen hagen, the capital and principal sea port. Is situated on the island of Zee land. The island folk form the mer chant marine and the fisheries, w'dlc the fanners live on the fertile main land. Iceberg Was an Acrobat. Not far from the spot where the Ti tanic was sunk hr an iceberg in April. 1912, a fleet of 14 icebergs, room of them rising to ippre than ioo feet above the water liftt, wore sighted by the steamship IRIftHires on a recent voyage. Captain Fleming of the Munaire* says that one of the bergs gave a re markable exhibition of tumbling as the vessel sailed past. It had apparently lost a good deal of its under writer weight through the action of the warm sea water, and as they watched il the great iceberg suddenly tippprl to star board and rolled over with an Immense splash. As It fell, a big section of the top broke away, with the re-ult that the balance was altered ami the berg tumbled back agaio. Then, just a* it was righting Itself, another section broke off, and ir rumbled once more. The sight was a most unusual one.— Edinburgh Scotsman. Thread in Manchuria. Almost all of the $2,000,000 worth of notion thread Imported aunually into Manchuria comes from Ja'nn, partly liecaure Japanese tnanufactliters have the advantage over possible competi tor* of government encouragement and support, and partly because there has been little competition from those suf ficiently interested in this market to study Its requirements as have the Japanese, says the New York Times. Goods were placed with merchants on consignment until they became known, were extensively advertised, aud are now sold on liberal credit ba sis. so that American manufacturers entering the market will not only have to compete on a quality basis, hut should adopt similar methods of push ing their goods.

Forests decay, harvest* perish, flowers vanish, but grass is im mortal. Beleaguered by the sullen hosts of winter, it withdraws into the impregnable fortress of its subterrane an vitality and emerges upon the first solicitation of spring. Sown by the winds, by the wandering birds, props gated by the subtle agriculture of the elements which are its ministers and servants, it softens the rude outline of the world. It hears no blazonry of bloom to charm the senses with fra grance or splendor, hut its homely hue l« more entbanting than tlte lily or the rose. It yields no fruit in earth or air, and yet. should Its harvest fail for a singl* year, famine would depopulate the world." This classic by John J.

One nf (he ii)n*i successful wartime eiperiments has been the caravan kitchen, ear* a London (Og.) dis patch. Owing to ihe fact that *n many mothers hud to leave their families of young children to fend for theroselvea while they went nnt to work to make ends meet, Miss Horsbnrough con ceived th«‘ idea of catering to the needs of these children hy means of a caravan kitchen. Assisted hy three or four other wom en, she paraded the poorer quarters of I.ontlon. rooking on route all kinds of toothsome iiwd nourishing dishes. The kiddies came running out with their ptajos »t the blowing of a tin trumpet, and were served with a piping hot and appetizing dinner in return for a trifling stun of money, which bail been left with them for this purpose by mother. The fame of (he caravan kitchen soon spread abroad, ami within a short apace of time was paying its way. 33, A00 dinners a week bring served In one district alone. So successful bss been this travel ing caterer It is likely, the work will be continued on a larger scale, and be- i eonie a permanent institution, instead I of a wartime measure.

ROADS STAND BY LOTALEMPLOVEES Tell President Harding Old and New Men Must Be Proteoted in Strike Settlement. NOT A MATTER OF CHOICE Faithful Employee* Have Both Legal and Moral Right* to Seniority and Other Benefit*. New York.—The keynote of the re ply made by railway executives repre senting more than ISO (.'lass I Rail reads <>( the Uuitcd States to the prop osition of President Harding, that “all strikers he returned to their work and their former positions with seniority and other rights unimpaired." lies in the last paragraph front their reply to the President as follows: "It is submitted that the strik ing format' *mptoj*'es cannot be given preference to employees at present in the service without doing violence to every principle of right and justice involved in this matter, and without the grossest breach of faith on tha pert of the railroads to the men at preset; in their service. "('niter these circumstances, it be comes apparent that ths railroads cannot consider any settlement of the present strike which does not pro vide protection ir. their present em- , piovnienl both to the loyal employees who remained in the service and to the new employees entering It." The executives had accepted the first two conditions proposed by the President, namely, that both employ ers and employees accept the decisions of the Labor Hoard, and that all law suits growing out of the strike he withdrawn; and in relation to the third condition spoke not only at quoted above. Hut also as follows: Agree With the President “The railroad executives and man agers agree entirely with the Presi dent's statement in his letter that ‘it is wholly unthinkable that the Railroad laibor Board can he made a useful agency of the Government in maintain ing industrial peace in the railway service unless employers and workers are both prompt and unquestioning in their acceptance of its decisions.’ “Many men in the service refused to Join the strike and in so doing were assured of the seniority rights accru ing to them and »f the permanence of their positions. On some important lines 50 per cent or more refused to join the sirik11. To thesp old loyal em ployees have been added thousands of new men who were employed and could be secured only upon a definite promise that their services would be retained regardless of the settlement of the strike, with all the rights ap pertaining to such employment, includ ing that of seniority under the working rules ami regulations previously ap proved by the Railroad Labor Board. “Just the Opposite Effect" “\\> especially point out that a re fusal to the old men who remained in the service and to the new men whe accepted service of the rights of senior ity incident to their employment would have just the opposite effect to that de sired h.v tiie President, and would most seriously discredit the Labor Board. “The board itself proscribed the rules of seniority under which the tnen referred to have secured their senior ity rights, and the railroad companies hau1 neither tiie legal nor moral right to deprive these men of those rights. Rv public utterances since the strike began i lie hoard has recognized and emphasized these rights, and to deny them now would, instead of upholding the authority of the Labor Board, over throw its mles and discredit its au thority. ‘■The f'hairman of the Labor Board nl the limp Hip strike was called made Hip following public statement: "t'ncii cur qi.iepticn the striking airi pleyces should not hp deceived. Their Ipso'fr lias paid that the striker* »r» no lcnKPr employee* of the rail *» 'r, and th»y have thus automatic* all.v abandoned all the rights they possess under thpir agreements and under Hie decision!? of the hoard, tn eluding their seniority. This Is not the beard's action. It ia their own. "Many carriers are1 giving their for mer employees the opportunity to re enter (he service within a knitted lime, it must he understood now that mm who remained in the serv ice and those who are now entering ii will have lights of seniority that the board could nut ignore." What the Proposed Plan Mean* "It must bp understood that any pro posal that employers noiv on strike shall be permitted to return to tbe service, without impairment to their seniority, is merely another way of suggesting thal those men who took employment in this crisis in good faith, relying on the promises of the rail roads io protect them in their posi tions. these promises being .justified by the authoritative utterances of the Labor Board, and ‘■bus have made pos sible the continued operation of the railroads, shall now he sacrificed in favor of men now on snake, who net only brought about the crisis, but, by their own action and declaration, are no longer employees of tbe railways, under tin- jurisdiction of the United Siales Kailroad Labor Board, or sub ject to the applioniion of the Trans portation act. "In addition to the necessity of up holding i lie Labor Board, and main taining i he pledges made by the rail roads to Lite men now at work, there is Hie practical effect on the tntper visury officers of a violation of the pledges they were authorized to make. Their discouragement and demoraliza tion would lie far more disastrous than this or lytr other strike.” Jas. J.
