A GIANT SKELETON
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
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.

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

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
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."
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"

A man is not a success in Hfo until

delusion that we were doing the best

aspiring spirit upon that anodyne. It
is easier to dream than to make jin

Then com6s a vision of what wo
