AGE SIX TIBETAN DEAD NOT BURIED After Sllclno Away the Flesh the Bone Are Pulverized and Then ' Fed to the Vultures. To bury bodies In tlio eartU is to contnmlnate them, is tho Tibetan vle;v, according to Rev. D. F. McGlllicuddy, pastor of St. Stephen's church, of Worcester, Muss., who penetrated this forbidden country In 1SKJ0. Instead of burying thnlr (lead they slice the flesh from all bodies and feed it to tho birds. After skillfully eut ting away the flesh they pulverize the bones and feed Uieiu to the vultures. , The temples used by these peoplo for centuries are still standing. In front of many of them are slumps of trees covered with butter, In which devotees stick their offerings of coins. Tibet Is peopled by a branch of the Mongolian race. The 2,000,000 or . 000,000 population are a mixture- of Chinese and Tibetans, ns the races In termarried. They believe In both poly andry and polygamy. It is tho most extensive elevated country In tho world, containing 750, 000 square miles, with an elevntlon varying from 8,000 to 14,000 feet. Its climate Is principally bleak and cold, oil hough the summers In the southern part are mild and pleasant. The first white man to enter Lhasa, the capital, was Sir Francis Young- husband, who fought bis way there In 1004. Dalai Lnmn, religious bead of 'the Buddhist faith, which is tho national religion, was so overcome by tho fact that infidels had trodden thu streets of tho forbidden city, that he iled the country, and was for many years a wanderer In northern China. LA UNCFl NEW PLANS FOR SOVIET BODY IN IIUNLAND BOOK MANY CENTURIES OLD Nelw Testament In Manuscript, Mar- velously Preserved, Was Brought to New York From Armenia. I One of the oldest New Testament manuscripts In the world, and Die old est, so far as Is known, In the United States, was brought, from Europe by John Ilnhn, n Hungarian. A dozen or more full-page colored illustrations of Incidents in the life of Jesus begin the volume. These are followed by two pages of historical data and several more comprising a calendar. I Little Is known of the history of this ancient Testament. A brief account of Its later adventures Is given In tho center of the book, written In modern Armenian by Jezeklel Arshagunl, who, In 1895, wrote what ho knew of Its story. During tho reign of Abdul Hamlam, when the Turks were per secuting the Armenian people, pillag ing homes, demolishing chapels and carrying away all the books, this vol ume was saved because it was hidden in water, doubtless in a well, until the danger had passed. The book was equal to the test. The Ink stayed fast and the parchment firm. Only tho red leather cover was loosened from the canvas back, showing Its wooden foun dation and a scrap of silk lining. Employed Two Parachutes. Though the design and operation of parachutes have been the subject of practical experiments since the eight eenth century, the American air serv ice Is the first, it Is believed, to test the action and Interaction of para chutes used In pairs, says Popular Mechanics Magazine. In experiments performed at Mltchel field, Long Is land, N. Y., a sergeant strapped one parachute on his back, as usual, and a second on his chest. Thus encum bered, he was carried, in n two-seater plane, to a height of approximately one mile. Here bo walked out on a wing, pulled the release of tho rear ward chute, and stepped into space. Tho white bag opened nicely, and be drifted down to within less tliaD 1,000 feet. Hero he pulled tho second re lease, and the second parachute open ed above him without entangling or in terfering with the first. Grouchlness Destroys Friendship. Nobody, of course, expects a man to be eternally radiant with cheerfulness and wreathed In smiles. But people will not tolerate urbanity one day and grouchlness the next In perpetual al ternation. People will not tolerate It because they do not have to. Pleasant friends who are more reliable in their manner are not difficult to find. There is no need of putting up with a "grouch." Consequently the moody, Instead of blaming others for their unpopularity extraordinary, 'would far better re proach themselves. They are the ones with whom the fnult lies, and until they overcome their moodiness they may rest assured that solitude and tin happiness will be their portion. II. Addington Bruce in Chicago Daily News. Parrot a Brainy Bird. We may question the veracity of some of the parrot stories that are told by admiring owners, but we can not doubt that the parrot is endowed with remarkable brain power. A good bird will interpret the moods of those about It in a .most uncanny way. A parrot known to the writer somehow seems to know Instantly when his mis tress Is amused, and will Join in the laughter after a dinner-table Joke with such spontaneity that any strang er might credit him with an accurate appreciation of the humor of the moment. The Main Question. "Sir, I came to ask you for your daughter's hand." "Well, young man, how much are you prepared to put Into It each month U I give it to you I" Dy CAM, D. GROAT (United Pross Staff Correspondent.) (Berlin, Nov. 8. (By Mail). Ger man's "Ncukommunlstcn" new com munists, as' the extreme loft of the Independent party Is called since tho Hallo convention want to .start putting Moscow principles Into prac tice in Germany. They believo with Slnowjew, Rus sian agitator and edmogogue, that they can get a dictatorship of the proletariat and a soviet - regime in Germany. And, their leaders say, they are prepared to undertake the fight at on early date. As this Is written the new communists are busying themselves with the task of seizing Independent party treas uries and trying to got control of the narty organs. They started In immediately after the, Halle conven tion, grabbed the party paper In Halle, "Das Hallesche Volksrecht," threw out the right-wing editors and nut in Moscow disciples. They like wise sent a force of strong-arm, youngsters to the central office of tlio Independent party hero to seizs party documents. A corageous night watchman drove them off. This is merely the first step in the pro-Mos-cowltes fight. Thoy call themselves Independents still, just as tho right wingers do. I3ut, they propose to get tho party machinery, especially the party or gans like tho influential "Frehoit" here under their control. Thereafter, according to their Ideas, they will he ready for their battle against their "enemy, the capitalists." If one takes the left-wingers' talk seroiiBly, one can picture a dire ai:d dreadful winter in Berlin and other sections of Germany. But the truth of the matter as seen by' careful observers probably is not as black or as red as the new communists paint things. ' They are regarded as strong enough to undertake some reign of terror at various points and times. But, on the whole, their strength is everywboro estimated us too small to upset the present order of things. Breltscheld of tho right wing, for in stance, forsees that tho reds will at tempt to put through their terroris tic program, but he adds confidently that the moderates will have their in nlngs directly afterward. The creation of a new communist group in Germany has not i the dire significance that many ' persons would attribute to it. American authorities here are in clined to take this view of the situ ation namely: 1 that the left wing formation merely separates the sheep from, the goats; 2 the creation of a party favoring force and terror is not a new thing, for the persons who now cast their lot with Moscow are the peoplo who have always preached terror and practiced it when they had a chance. And, above all, is the general spirit of the German worker. He lias reached the point where tilings go a little more smoothly for him than for the last few years. Unem ployment has decreased slightly since the first of September. The German workers as a whole want sanity and sound conditions rather than the doubtful experiment of JVIos cowism. Admissions of even tho demago gue Slnowjew that Russia's interna! plight is bad have given the worker food for thought.

Iuman, ByMAIUORIE ) (Written for the' United Press.) 5 "Throwing dowtn the t;auntlet" would he' a very expensive pa.-itlme this year. A lady would need implicit faith in her cavalier before she would dare throw one of her gloves to the Hons, in giving the "dare" to her gallant, and the same lady of medevial days whose "straying sad gloves she was always mislaying," would endure a severe memory jog when she recoivod the glove bill. , Much has been said this season about It being "the most ornate year" in the .fashion realm. Gar ment writers have raved for full and well about "the most ornate year" for dresses, suits, wraps, shoes, and vanity cases. And now we are awak ing to the fact that even the glove which has remained quite stationary for many seasons, Is cutting up such festive capers that we must now write about '"the most ornate year for gloves." The highest class specialty shops on Fifth Avenue are really astound ing their buying populace by show ing them what can be done to a glove. Even one year ago woman kind would have gigled at the Idea of encasing her hands in silk and skins all .bedecked with colored em broidery, painted designs, chenille traceries, and beaded patterns. But that is exactly what glove departments are showing today. The counters look like suggestions for a period ball, or as if Arthur and Hip Knights had surrendered their gaunt lets to the modern Milady. For it Is the gauntlet cut that has almost sup planted the bona fide glove. Both silks, fabrics, and skin gloves em ploy this spreading cuff to be worn over the dress, suit or coat sleeve. Some of the cuffs ere very stiff and unbelted. Others fall in folds from the wrist and UBe a variety of belts and buckles. Of the former variety, a leading- house Is showing a pair In very heavy 'black cape leather. The cuff spreads, as if stiffly starched from the wrist and is decorated -with a banding In vermilllon red. This style Jibes well with Peter Pan dresses and Eton suits and is es pecially for the Juene fille. The softer suedes and glace kid are gathered in by contrasting belts Real Jewels are used on the tiny buckles of munyv of these gloves, These priceless gloves are brought forth only upon request. One house shows upon application a pair of soft white suede gauntlets edged with er mine and buckled with white sap pnires. Another fairy like pair of taupe kid, 'belted with very narrow gray squirrel strips and buckled with a tiny jade of mosaic. Other gloves, which are out of the millionaire dollar clans and yet which are not exactly proletariat, employ eimhroidered bindings in silks or beads. A favorite style is the wool which Is gay with tiny figures of various colors. Sometimes the lin ing protrudes over the cuff for an inch or so. white capeskin gauntet finished about the cuff with an Inch banding of the Swastika pattern embroidered in black silk floss. Sport gloves of heavy kid or pig skin in use novelty wools as linings, Thus, many gauntlets of tan cape are shown lined with a tan angora No. 5431 Reserve District No. 10 ' Report of the Condition of THE FIRST NATIONAL BANK At Chlckasha, in the State of Oklahoma, at the close of business, on November 15, 1920 RESOURCES Loans and discounts, Including rediscount except those shown in b and c) $1,067,260.68 X Customers' liability account of acceptances of this bank purchased or discounted by it 86.244.12 Total loans 1,153,504.80 Deduct: Notes and bills rediscounted with Federal Reserve Bank (other than bank acceptances sold) (see item 54a) 116,878.77 Overdrafts, secured, none; unsecured U.
