)' . FRIDAY, JULY 11, 1919., THE COCONINO SUN Page Eleven i. I: A GIANT SKELETON EIGHTEENFEET TALL AUSTIN, Tex., June 14. "If the report that the fossilized skeleton of a giant eighteen feet tall has been found near Seymour, Tex., is true, it is the most important ethnological dis covery ever made in the world," re marked Dr. J. E. Pcarce, professor of anthropology of the University of Texas. "It would break all previous records of giants by nearly ten feet, as the tallest man known to anthropo logical research was only eight feet 5 inches in height." The skeleton is in possession of W. J. McKinney, Houston, Tex., oil pros pector, who found it, and has been seen by a number of people who vouch for the truth of the size of the relic of a heretofore unknown race. Mr. McKinnev. while making an ex cavation on the narrow watershed be tween the Brazos and Wichita rivers, came upon the fossilized skeleton near the surface. Mr. Kinney writes: "I estimate that this man weighed from two thousand to twenty-five hundred pounds. According to my de ductions he lived about twenty-eight hundred years ago. The skull is six times the sizo of that of an ordinary man." v. Mr. McKinney does not explain now he arrived at the figures as to the probable period of the existence of this rcmarkablo man. It is probable that the bones of the giant will be donated to the Smithsonian Institution which, under the direction of Dr. J. Walter Fewkes, is now conducting an thropological research work in Texas. QlllllllltlMIIIIIIMIIIMIIIMIIIIIIIIHtltlMIIIIM IIMIIMIIMIlQ I D0N0FRI0 1 j ICE CREAM !

NO MORE HYPHENATES SAYS GENERAL WOOD General Leonard yood, colonel, of the Rough Riders when Roosevelt was lieutenant colonel, trainer of two divi sions in Kansas camps in this war, former governor of Cuba, and in ex ecutive authority in the Philippines, former chief of staff, the only general officer wounded at the front in France, and now in command of the central department, at Chicago, had this to say at commencement exercises here in Washington: ' "At this time last year we were looking forward to a long war. Our troops were just commencing to play an important role in the great strug gle for civilization and fair dealing among peoples. Today the nations are engaged in preparation for a just and, we hope, a lasting peace. One of the first problems that confronts us is the return to their homes of the men who are coming back from over seas. Their objective was the enemy and they got him. Our men fought with splendid courage. They lived up to the highest traditions of our mili tary service and in their performance of duty gained the admiration of Eu rope. They never failed. They al ways took their objective. ' "Now is the time to show an intel ligent appreciation of what these men and the men in the training camps have done. There were four million of them. Their influence in this country is going to be very power ful. If we do the right thing toward them, we shall have in the home of each one of them a center of patriot ism and a spirit of service which will go far to keep alive a sound patriotic spirit. A great part 'of the world is very much upset and dangerous ideas arc abroad. We want to keep our feet on the ground and hold on to the ideals' and policies which have made us great, to the constitution and the policies whose wisdom has been dem onstrated by our security and prog ress. We must do all we can to con tinue to build up a sound national spirit, an intense Americanism. We must complete the work of fishing into one homogeneous mass of Ameri cans the various elements which make up our population. We have had in our armies representatives of all the fighting groups in Europe, and I want to say a word of appreciation of the loyalty of the citizens of alien descent. Some of them came from the blood strains of our enemies. We have only to read the lists of our dead to realize that these Americans of German and other descents have been loyal. They have written anew their oath of alle giance. This time it has been written irt their own blood. These new" people are now a part of us in every sense. So let us hear no more of hyphenated Americans and look upon all who have been loyal as Americans." LABOR NOT DEMOCRATIC "The Democratic party and the So cialist party are dead, and the Re publican party is coining into power, said John Fitzpatrick, president of v, rtiio-irrr. l?vlrrntinn nf Labor and recently candidate of the labor party for mayor'of his homo city, in an in terview at the American Federation of Labor convention in Atlantic City. "Neither the Democratic nor the So cialist party now satisfies the con servative and constructive demands of labor," he went on. "Except in words they do not know that a new order is at hand. The Republican party will sweep the country next year and then will come into national prominence a labor party, which will take the place of the then defunct Democratic organ ization. We did not make so much of a showing with our 60,000 votes in the Chicago election, but we made a start in the direction of a labor party, and since they have elected mayors of nine cities in Illinois. Of course, if the Republican party satisfies our ends, all well and good; but, take it from me, the Democratic and Socialist par ties are dead fco far as labor is con cerned." o EH? "Mother," said George, as he pre sented his office chum, who had come to spend Saturday afternoon with him, "this is my friend Mr. Speck noodle." Now, it happened that the lady who is the heroine of this vera cious history was rather deaf. "I'm sorry," she said, with her hand to her ear, "but I didn't quite catch the name." "My friend, Mr. SpecknoodleP.then shouted George. "I'm sorry," said his mother, "but I can't hear it distinctly." "Snecknoodlel" George fairly bel lowed. "I'm nfi-owl ira' nn iiki " said the old lady, as she sadly shook her heap. "It sounds just nice -opccKnoouie io mu.

"I don't know," answered the Irish man, "but I presume it's the person in the front carriage." NOT ON HIS LIST Bcnjinks: "Say, Winkson, why don't you marry the widow Gloucester? She is single and you need a woman." Winkson: "No, not she. She is so wrinkly homely you could make a horseradish grater out of her face." RUMORED CLOSING OF OAK CREEK WAS A MISTAKE According to information just re ceived from Phoenix there is no dan ger of the curtailment of the fishing season on Oak Creek. It was also stated 'that F. O. Allen, deputy game warden of Flagstaff, who recently made an inspection of the stream, did not recommend the closing of the sea son in that district, the original ac count of his report being in error. The news will be received with a great deal of satisfaction by the big sportsmen of the district. The an nouncement that recommendations had been made by Mr. Allen that the stream be placed under the ban arous ed a storm of protest which resulted in the filing of several petitions with the state game warden, expressing the disapprobation of the anglers of Je rome, Clarkdale, Verde, and Cotton wood. The local fishermen were joined by others in Phoenix and Prescott. who annually visit the creek for a battle with the finny beauties which lurk in its recesses. An investigation has disclosed the fact that there was an error in the ac count which announced that the game warden was contemplating this action as a result of the rcnort of Allen. The story of his report was confused with the closing of the Catalina game preserve in Pima county by the corre spondent who sent out the item. The substance of Mr. Allen's report mere ly suggested that the state official take some steps to stock the stream which has been allowed to deteriorate during the past few seasons. The suggestion of the deputy game warden met with the approval of the local sportsmen. For some years Oak Creek has been stocked exclusively by local business men who have borne the expense of the upkeep by popular subscription. For several seasons, however, no one has appeared to take action, and the stream has been sadly neglected. Jerome News. Deputy Game Warden Allen and the people generally up this way have been wondering who started this story and why they originated it out of whole cloth, unless for some ulterior purpose. No suggestion of closing Oak Creek to fishing has ever been made, either by State Game Warden Prochaeka or Deputy Game Warden Allen. GOMPERS FLAYS BURLESON President Gompers, of the Ameri can Federation of Labor, declared in an interview recently that Postmaster General Burleson is an autocrat and thinks in the terms ofa past age. "The other day," he said, "I had a last talk with the postmaster' general. He said that he would be glad to see any of the employees of his depart ment at any time and would be glad to receive any complaint from any of them. I told him he should know that that would be impossible, because both pressure of business upon his timo and timidity on their part would prevent that. I went on to say to him 'that the a'ge of autocrats and despots had passed, that our boys had died in Eu rope to prevent that sort of thing; that there was no longer any room for even a benevolent despot. "Collective bargaining is a principle heartily endorsed by former President Taft in. his joint chairmanship of the War Labor Board. In that connection Mr. Taft has earned the highest ap proval for his really sympathetic and unselfishly interested attitude." o THE "HONORABLES" IN PARIS The president is described in the of ficial text of the Peace Treaty as "The Honorable Woodrow Wilson, president of the United States, acting in his own name and by his own proper authority," and one of his associates is described as "The Honorable Edward M. House." According to the treaty, with the exception of "Gen. Tasker H. Bliss, military representative of the United States on the Supreme War Council," they are all "Honoroblo" men. THE SITUATION "Got some fine squabs today, sir," suggested the waiter. "So I see. A glance around the dining room confirms that. But they all seem to have gcnt3 with 'em!" o SOME MIXED A little boy had been taught man ners at school and wishing to go to bed said (in trying to be polite): "Please excuse me, ma'am, I wish to expire." o The Sun want-ads sell anything. Enjoy Your Meals, Madam URGE OF A BIG IDEA . A man is not a success in Hfo until a dominant purpose takes hold of him, to which all other procedures and all measures and all the powers of his being are subordinated. Sorrowful is the state of the man who, at any age, has let himself bo tamed and fastened down to an un seeing, unthinking jog trot in the same old rut, day after day, A man is not old until he refuses to admit new light, embrace fresh ex periences, entertain thoughts that, never occurred to him before, open the doors and windows of his mind to the morning. Perhaps we hugged to ourselves the delusion that we were doing the best we could. It is so easy to feed the aspiring spirit upon that anodyne. It is easier to dream than to make jin effort; easier to accept things as thpy are than to change them. Then com6s a vision of what wo might be and arc not, and it chal lenges us and will not let us rest. We must be up and doing. We know at last what we were made for, what j we were sent into the world to, do. Life becomes purposeful, and each waking minute has its mission. THE VICE IN ADVICE Advice is the most worthless com modity in the world. Those who might profit by it doh't need it, and those who do need it won't profit by it if they could, they wouldn't need it. o A PROBLEM Great fiscal problems confront all the nations today is it better to be busted and borrow money, or to be solvent and have to lend money? DESTRUCTIVE When Burleson gets through with the telephones it looks as if there will not be anything left but the re ceivers. o If you have anything for sale, try an advertisement in The Sun.
