MEXICANS NEED JOBS.
Many Educated Refugees Now Liv
lug Along the Rio Grande Could
Become Valuable Clerical Aids.
A new supply of clerical labor for
the southern states is available, ac
cording to Dr. Joseph T. Ware, fed
eral employment director for Tenn
essee, among the educated Mexicans
living along the Rio Grahde. These
me have fled their own country be
cause of the disturbances there in
,recent years, and many of them have
exhausted their resources.
"Living in the various cities of
ghe Mexican border are many thous
ands of Mexicans,,!' says Dr. Ware,
"of the middle and higher classes
who are refugees from their
country on account of political con
ditions. These Mexicans are educat
ed, many of ...em highly so. Most
ol them are unemployed, partly be
cause their knowledge of English is
limited and partly because they do
not know how to get in touch with
the business men who might be glad
to utilize their services. Among
them are to be found accountants,
bookkeepers, qlerks, timekeepers,
and former government employees.
"In addition to these occupations,
these people could be used in. the
lighter manual occupations and
foremen where gangs of Mexican
laborers are employed. With our
business men taking more and more
interest in foreign trade, particu
larly with the Spanish-speaking
countries, comes an decreasing de
mand for derkB who can speak and
write the Spanish language, and
among these people are many who
could qualify for such positions."

HAVOC CAUSED BY HAILSTORM
Account of Destruction In England In
1687 Seams Almost incredible-*
Horses Felled at the Plow.
The greatest hailstorm that ever oc
curred in England was that of April
29, 1697, recorded by Edmund Halley,
the astronomer. The story seems al>
\most incredible, yet It Is told by a
philosopher, the contemporary and
friend-of Isaac Newton, and an ac
curate observer of natural phenom
ena. The main body of the storm, he
states, fell upon Lancr shire, in a
right line from Ormskirk to Blackburn.
"The breadth of the cloud was
about two miles, within which com
pass It did incredible dampge, killing
all sorts of fowl and small creatures,
and scarce leaving any whole panes
in any of the windows where it passed,
but, which Is worse, It cut off the
blade of the green corn so as utterly
to destroy it, the hailstones burying
themselves in the ground; and the
bowling-greens, where the earth was
anything soft, were quite defaced, so
as to be rendered unserviceable for fl
time. This I had from an eye
witness.
"The hailstones, some of which
weighed five ounces, were of different
forms. Two hailstones were weighed
at Ormskirk which came to three*
quarters of a pound each. As a young
woman at Bootle was running for
shelter her hat felt off, and a hailstone
that hit her behind the ear made her
tumble. The stones rebounded, many
'of them two yards high. At Ince two
horses were knocked down at the
plow, and a man fell at the same
time."

MADE SACRIFICE OF RUj-ERS
8omewhat Remarkable Form of Lim
ited Monarchy Was That Practiced
by Tribe of the Caucasus.
"At a certain stage of social evolu
tion," says Sir James Frazer In his
article entitled "The Killing of the
Khazar Kings," "not a few races ap
pear to have been in the habit of put
ting their kings to death, either at
the end of a fixed term, or on the
failure of the king's health and
strength, or simply whenever a great
public calamity, such as drought or
famine had befallen the country."
Arflong tribes which have practiced
this remarkable form of limited mon
archy must be Included the Khazars
or Khozars. For some nine hundred
years this now almost forgotten tribe,
from their home in the spars of the
Caucasus and along the western shore
of the Caspian—called after them the
Sea of the Khazars—played a great
part in history on the European-Asian
borderland. It Is certainly remark
able that a people which had reached
such a high level of civilization and
cultureshould have practiced legalized
regicide. But the evidence collected
by Sir James Frazer from a very wide
survey of medieval literature leaves!
no doubt on the matter.

The Deadly Nightshade.
Deadly nightshade, which Is cult!
rated to supply the English market
with atropine, bears a botanical
name. Atropa belladonna, curiously
appropriate to Its qualities, evil and
good, combining the name of the
most dreaded of the Fates—Atro
pos, whose function was to cut the
thread of human life—with the Ital
ian for a beautiful woman. One of
the most curious facts concerning
the poison of the nightshade is its
much more potent effect upon hu
man beings than on animals, for
though deaths from eating the ber
ries are fairly common among chil
dren, the birds eat and thrive on
them, and the leaves, almost equal
ly dangerous to man, seem Innocu
ous to horses, sheep, pigs, rabbits,
and other animals, which browse
upon them freely. The frequent oc
currence of nightshade in the neigh
borhood of ruined abbeys and mon
astic houses makes It reasonaMe to
believe that many of the wild plants
are survivors from monkish herb gar
dens. '

KokU Incident Recalled.
The first serious difficulty between
the United States and Austria arose
65 years ago as a result of the Koszta
incident, which strained relations be
tween the two countries almost to the
breaking point. Martin Koszta, a Hun
garian patriot, after taking part In the
uprising In 1848 and subsequent years,
came to America and declared his in
tention of becoming a citizen. In 1853,
while on a - visit to Smyrna,, he was
seized and imprisoned on board an
Austrian war vessel. He had with
him an American passport and claimed
the protection of the United States
warship St Louis, then In the harbor
of Smyrna. Captain Ingraham de
manded that Koszta be released, bnt
he was not freed until after the decks
of the St. Louis had been cleared for
action.

It Is against the laws of Massachu

tape was necessary before the owner
of an .auto truck was able to use his
machine on that account. A phoebe

and laid three eggs in it When the

SOUGHT ONLY BY FISHERMEN
Rock Point, Md., Differs in Many
Way* From the Conventionalized
"8ummer Resort-"
In
Little white wooden houses In
broken row, like an old man's teeth;
behind them a fat green Maryland
farm country of broad-leaved tobacco
fields and yellow wheat and deeply
shadowed woods; before them a river
seven miles wide of almost tropical
green and blue, with a wooded island
in the foreground shading the water
with great sycamore and crowned by
pine grove, where nest the os t .eys that
hover all day long over the water,
plunging like living javelins, now and
then, to snutch fish of dazzling silver
from a river of polished jade.
Such, impressionistically, is Rock
Point, Md., where all summer long
many Washingtonians go to catch fish.
The place Is not at al| fashionable;
there is no hotel worthy of the name,
and the prices of everything are alto
gether too low to attract the "best peo
ple."
Even the fact that at least one cabi
net officer, a senator or two and sev
eral congressmen go regularly to Rock
Point does not seem to add to its dig
nity or tp endow It with the rank of
real summer resort. ,Somehow even
senator loses his value as a social or
nament when he puts on a pair of
overalls and yells and gets excited over
a four-pound sea trout
Th& great majority of those who go
to Rock Point are simply anglers—
whatever else they may be at home,
here they are but members of the great
fraternity of fishermen. Bankers and
plumbers often "chip In" .on the same
motorboat and borrow tobacco from
each other.
Women are fewer than men, bnt
never lacking, and they are always
hearty, sunburned women of the kind
that get their hair wet when they go
In swimming and don't pretend to be
afraid of a fish.

FAILED TO PLEASE NAPOLEON
Narrow-Minded Officials Who Ob
scured Royal Emblem Had Mia
Judged Mind of Great Emperor.
A pretty story Is told by some his
torians of Napoleon's entrance iqto a
French cathedral city in the days when
bis eagles were taking their most gjori
ops flights and Europe was at his feet.
It happened that the cathedral win
dows were, some of them, decorated
with the design of the fleur-de-lis.
Eager partisans ha<^ covered up these
windows so that the lilies would not
he seen.
The emperor, sharp of eye as ever,
Inquired the reason for the obscura
tion of the windows.
> "They bear the fleur-de-lis design
odd there is no time to change it," ex
£ained some one. "So we covered It
up, fearing It might offend your maj-j
esty."
"The lilies of France," said Napo
leon, "have. Jed her sons to victory
through many wars. Surely every son
of France should be proud of them."
It is needless to add that the wln-j
dows were immediately uncovered.
Human "Fish" No Match for Angler.
Fishing a man was the novel feat
performed by a man at Avalon, Cali
fornia, a few days ago. Captain Adar
go, a powerful swimmer, played the
part of the fish, while Captain West
brook took the part of the angler. The
'ffish" was given one hundred and fifty
feet of line at the start and quickly
gained thirty feet Then the angler
felt that he was ready to begin tactics
to "subdue" the "fish," and telling
about it afterward, Captain Adargo
said: "Then I was pulled backward
and couldn't make any headway
against the outfit. I have gone into
some heavy swells as a professional
swimmer and coin diver, but the fish;
lug stuff has got them all beat for tak
ing the energy out of a man. Every
time Westbrook came back on the rod
it almost lifted me ont of the water."
In fifteen minutes Captain Westbrook
regained the one hundred' and eighty
feet of line. He "fished" with his usu
al tackle. A broken Hne would have
won the contest for the fish.
Dynamic of Friendship.
It is not a mark of weakness, but
a natural and normal instinct to
crave the love of one's fellows. We
must all' of us have our friendships,
for we are socially constituted. "One
man Is no man." Every man needs
to be constantly refreshed and In
spired by contact with the associates
of the Intellectual life, the comrades
of the spirit, and should always keep
on hand some real friends, as dis
tinguished from mere chance ac
quaintances. There must be at least
one in a hundred of the people we
meet who Is fitted to be our brother.
When found, such a helpmate in In
tellectual things becomes a dynamic
force for blessing In our lives. It is
easier to be good when such a friend
is with us—nor is such a helper ever
really absent. We should locate our
friends, identify our affinities, and
then* love them as we do ourselves,
so realizing the full blessedness of
human brotherhood.

Miss Grace Peck

a
a
a
KA.
For the past two Chautauqua sea
sons Miss Grace Peck of Blackfoot,
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. E. T. Peck,
has been traveling in Canada and
Alaska ae advance agent for the
EUleon-White Chautauqua System.
She has made a marked success in
her work and Bingham county has
a right to ifeel proud of her. Miss
Peck grew up in this county, was edu
cated in the Blackfoot schools from
which she graduated with honors
and later entered the National Kin
dergarten school at Chicago, where
she remained one year,
school she specialized in kindergar
ten training and settlement . work,
preparing herself for work with the
junior Chautauqua if fortune should
be so good to her as td give her the
opportunity, of undertaking that
work or something similar, however,
she is much pleased that the man
agement of the Chautauqua system
did not require her to make her start
in junior Chautauqua work, but
started her out as advance agent.
At the Chicago school she special
ized in kindergarten training and
settioment work and a part of tne
settlement work consisted of the
students going into the settlement
districts of Chicago each morning
and teaching the inhabitants. This
work broadened Miss Peck in a
great degree and brought her in con
tact and association with another
sphere of life. She was much im
pressed with this work.
Has the Necessary Characteristics
While Miss Peck was in high
school here she was very active in
the 8chool activities and her friends
will remember that she is a person
of good appearance and good ad
dress. She can approach friendB and
strangers alike in a way to make a
favorable impression and that is a
characteristic this is necessary to the
success of such work as she under

MENTION NAMES OF MEN PRO
BABLE FOR U. S. DELEGATION
WASHINGTON, Nov. 24.—With
the return to Washington tomorrow
of Secretary of State Lansing, it is
expected that steps will be taken to
announce the personnel of the United
States delegation to the peace con
ference. ......
It is expected that therj are rea
sons /to believe tt»?, names will be
made public before Wedi'esday.
The best Informed opinion in
Washington names the following
men in the probable, order of their
selection; >.y, u
Secretary LansIngx'Colonel E.
House, Secretary Houston, El
Root, Justice Brandiqs.
Barauch, Senator PljeJan «f Califor
nia and William Jennings Bryan. As
it is generally presumed that the
delegates will number five, three of
the foregoing names are. of course,
eliminated by various authorities
who are conversant with > the trend
of discussion in administration cir
cles,' ■ i 'to *v' j
, It appears that Mr; Baruch will be
chosen only In. the event the Justice
Brandlew canHOt be spared from the
deliberations of the- supreme court;
: ; ■'v.'Gfre Weighty «Oa»ons. , ■ 1
Weighty reasons are advanced for
the possible su bet Ration of Senator
Phelan or Mr. Bryan for Secretary
Houston. As yet there is no reason
to believe that any undue pressure
has been brought to bear in the In*
terest of Senator Phelan, but it IS
possible that efforts in his behalf will
be made In the coming twenty-four
hours.
The possibility of the selection of
Mr. Bryan has not been received with
much enthusiasm. The past two
days, however, have brought about
a crystallization of opinion in cer
tain quarters favorable to the nam
ing of Mr. Bryan, whose known pac
ificist tendencies and studies in prob
lems of International peace are held
'as fully qualifying him for discus
sion and pleading of great Issues
before the international conclave. It
is believed that the common Interests
of Lloyd George and Mr. Bryan alBo
would be a further guarantee of con
tinued harmony between the British
and American delegations.
Secretary Houston appears to be
more generally accepted now as a
possibility for the delegation than
earlier, in the week.
In some quarters it is stated flatly
that he is a certainty. It is known
that President Wilson respects high
ly the talents of the secretary of ag
riculture and his grasp of interna
tional problems. While it 1 b known
that Secretary Houston has coun
seled the president in the handling
growing out of the entrance into the
war, it has bejn ue thought among
many observers that his influence in
administration councils was not such
as w-Mild make his selection a fore
gone conclusion.
> In* connection with predictions of
the probable selections to be made
by the president, aowever, It must
be remembered that/in previous ap
pointments he has often gone with
out the circle of men nationally re
cognized as leaders.

ASSISTING AT CHRIST'S
L. Chapman has ac«pted a posi
tion at Christ's Jewelry during the
absence of S. G. Davis. Mr. Davis is
enjoying a hunting outing for a few
days.
Her first summer was spent In se
curing; contracts for chautauquas, It
being her work to go into a town and
decide whether or not it was the
kind of a town that would make a
success of a Chautauqua, and if she
concluded that it was capable it was
her next duty to find enough of the
leading people of the town to make
a contract and co-operate with the
Chautauqua system to make a suc
cessful series of entertainments.
Succeeds in Landing Contracts
This means that the advance agent
must be able to meet strangers and
tell them about chautadqua work in
such a way that it will appeal to
them. She must also be able to not
only interest them, but interest them
to such an extent that they will sign
a contract that means some financial
responsibility. Some persons can
interest strangers in a project, but
never finish the subject to the ex
tent of securing the signatures on
a contract. Some can secure a con
tract after another person has pro
ceeded them and worked up the in
terest, but Miss Peck haB the happy
faculty of doing all of this work and
in many instances she has gone into
a town and secured a contract in a
single day. The average length of
time required for such, work being
much more than that. It usually
takes two or three days to work up
peoples' Interest and get people to
gether on a contract. Miss Peck re
ceives a commission for each con
tract she secures and by reason of
her ability In obtaining results
quickly she has done well financially.
Seeing Part of the World .
Most young people have a desire
to travel and see the ^rorld and this
opportunity to see the Great Domin
ion was Okie of the valuable things
in the work. Miss Peck has seen
Canada from Vancouver to Winnepeg
and from the Minnesota border
northward as far as there are cities
and towns of anV Importance. The
Chautauqua system maintain a cen
tral office for the Chautauqua at
Calgary and Miss Peck travels in and
out of there In all directions. Last
summer she made a trip to Juneau,
Alaska in company with a number of
other Chautauqua people, it being the
first entertainments of that nature
to visit those distant pointn. They
took a steamer trip up the coast by
way of the inside passage a id en
joyed that rare scenery to the limit.
Miss Peck says the steamer service
on the Pacific coast is very poor now
as all the best steamers alre engaged
in transport Work for the armies.
Canadians Anxious for Chautauquas
Canada has very poor crops thjs
year owing to the drought and in
their operations they, found many
towns, where the people were act
ually hungry for the Chautauqua en
tertainments, but could scarcely get
money enough together to buy sea
son tickets. Part of the time dup
ing the past season she assisted with
the selling of season tickets at the
different towns and in that work they
frequently took autos and went' out
among the; farmers and stockmen.
Miss Peck mentions one farmer she
went to who was anxious to buy '
tickets, but who had no money and
no means by which .to'get any, but
he had some pigs and said, half ser- ■
iouslv, he'Would take tickets if she
could take pigs, eorshe took two pigs
in paymehtvfor two season tickets.
The pigs were taken t6 town: and
sold to somebody who bad use for
pigs. She* tried to make arrange
ments to send one of the pigs by ex
press to the head office at Portland
as A joke for the management, but
she had some difficulty in arrang
ing to have a pig crated for such a
long trip and lacked the time to give
it attention so she passed up that
joke.

Trip Abroad Possible
The Chautauqua people organized
a party of twenty-one persons to go
to Australia tills fall and entertain
in twenty-two towns of that contin
ent. The party will make the trip
in twenty-one days from Vancouver
to Melburn and what we know as the
winter season will find them enter
taining Australians in their summer
season. They expect to extend their
services to South Africa, after the
war and Miss Peck hopes to be at
tached to a party to make one of
these trips abroad. Sue is very much
interested in Chautauqua work and
enjoys it keenly.
