Some men choose their vocations when they are about the age of three years. You've seen a kid. who when he was almost too am a 11 to reach the table would try to amputate the cat's let? or perform an appendix operation on a sister's doll. All the family would stand around admiring and choose the med ical college he was going to. Well, here's one who wasn't much mora than snaggle toothed when he was wiring the house and putting batteries on all the doors. When he had finished the sixth grade (without honor) father said one night that the only thing for Joe to do was to get in an electric shop, and earn his own living. I don't know that there ever was a much more perfect moment in that boy's life than when he started down on Mont'ay morning with a tin pall and a pair of overalls. From twelve years to twenty-eight years means a passage of time, but Joe was still with the company as a cable splicer. Advancement was there, and he used to look pretty longingly at jobs higher up, but a sixth grad3 graduations is not much of a founda tion for promotion, is it? That was just before United States army packed up and went abroad for a year or so. Joe went with them, and left a star in the company's flag. One day over there a German ma chine gun carried away the bottom of a ledge he was standing on, and with it his right hand and the fingers of SPECIALS for the FOURTH CLOSED ON THE FOURTH-BUY TODAY We quote prices on the following, which will save you 15 to 20 per cent on every dollar tou spend: Extra Fancy Loose Pickles, lb 2"c Jweet Radish, jar 15c Jueen Olives, 50c jar for. .40c 3ueen Olives, 20c jars . . 15c Huffed Olives, jar 15c 3ueen Olives, loose, doz. 10c tied Alaska Salmon, can. .35c laska Pink Salmon, can. .20c American Sardines, 2 cans 15c Roast Beef, can 40c Corn Beef, can 40c Lunch Tongue, can 40c Dried Chip Beef, can 20c Libby's Vienna Sausage, 15c can, 2 for 25c Libby's Potted Ham, can . .5c Hamburger Steak, 15c can, 2 for 25c Kraft Cheese, can 20c Spanish Red Pimentos, can 25c Libby's Pork and Beans, 11-2 lb. cans 15c Van Camp's Pork and Beans, Van Camp's Peanut Butter, 35c jars for 30c Van Camp's Peanut Butter, 25c jars for 20c Van Camp's Peanut Butter, . .15c jars for 10c Loose Peanut Butter, lb.. .30c Extra fancy Sour and Sweet pickles, 25c jars for 20c Extra fancy loose pickles, lb 25c Van Camp's Pork and Beans, No. 1, 15c can, 2 for. . . .25c Uneeda Biscuits, 10c, 3 for 25c Lunch Biscuits 10c, 3 for 25c Graham Crackers 10c, 3 for 25c Fresh Yard Eggs, doz.... 45c Brookfield Butter, lb 60c Swift Prem.

Uf course, the war risk in surance bureau gave his some com pensation, but nothing compensates for changing your stand in the world for a seat on the shelf. About that time he got the big news. The federal board for vocational training sent one of their men to tell Joe that he wasn't ready o quit and the United States wasn't read for him to, and offered him -a year or so off from work in which he could place a few more stones in that sixth grade foundation. Did he take the oppor tunity. Well, yes. Just listen to this. Joe entered a technical school and 13 learning to write a readable hand with that left stump, is taking Knglis.'i, mathematics, accounting and sales manship and the reports of him are A-l. When he gets through he is going to be a salesman in that electric com pany he grew up with, and is going to make more money than he ever did before, with a good chance of going on up. Say, wish you could have seen his face when he got that letter from the boss telling him his new job was ready when he was. Looked like a tin pan in a New Kngland kitchen. ELEVATOR OPERATOR!

CONSTRUCTIVE WORK AMONG SEAMEN AMD The tramp was kicking out Six knots. The spume spilled itself over her bow for she was low in the water, so low. indeed, that one could scarce ly see the crazy design of black and white that was laid on her sides. That design showed on her superstructure and smoke-stack, though, and one only had to look at it and look at the sand-bags that were piled up around the bridge to know the seas were unsafe for tramp steamer that ran without flags by day or sailing lights by nights. On the bridge of steel and sand bags the "old man" stood beside the quartermaster at the wheel. These were days when the "old man" was to be found always on the bridge, for the tramp was steaming slowly through that danger zone where she was liable to be sunk on sight. Suddenly a submarine came to sur face fifty yards to starboard of the tramp. On her conning tower showed the foul black cross of Germany. The "old man" saw the submarine and the cross upon her side Just as the look out shouted a warning. And it took him but a moment to perceive and de termine and proceed to do. "Put her over,": the ''old man" shouted. His voice was harsh and clear and certain. The wheel spun through the fingers of the quartermaster. The tramp trembled and lurched and swung her head. The spume slapped against her harder than before and sloshed along the fo'castle. "Full speed ahead." the ''old man" signalled to the 1 ngine room. From behind his sand-bags the ''old man" saw some of the crew of the U boat fling themselves into the sea. Then the tramp fell upon her victim. There was a crunch of broken steel. There was a cry upon the air. There was a smudge of oil upon the waters. 'Ixwer away," the "old man" or dered. His voice ri;ng with grim sat isfa ction. "Aye, aye, sir." Men sprang to a boat. They freed the tackle and swung her clear of the davits. They leaped to the dripping seats and seized the oars. As she touched the sea they pushed her clear of the ship. Then they began to row, for thus did men of the merchant service show mercy to the merciless. ' But not all men of the merchant service escaped like that. Many went to their death without warning or a chance to get away. Others were sunk in the boats they lowered. Some suc ceeded in escaping and were torpedoed again and yet again. The war went on. The years went by. Ships by the score fell victim to the enemy. Yet not until 1917. when the war had been going on for three years did any mer chant seamen who had been torpedoed refuse again to set to sea and during the whole course of the war perhaps not more than half a dozen men de clined to sail again. They wear no medals or rewards these merchant seamen. They have 110 chevrons for war service, no dis tinguishing marks for wounds receiv ed. They pass quietly and unnoticed, but it is proposed to given them rec ognition now in a way that will last for all time. Except in New York anil S;in Fran cisco there is little constructive work done among seamen in the ports qf the Fnited States. Now as recogni tion of their bravery in the war it is proposed to extend this work to every salt and fresh water port of any size. In New York, on the waterfront. there stands a sixteen-story buildln;; from the flag-pole of which day and night there fly three flags. It is the signal ZBH and if you search the pages of the international code book you will find that signal means "Wel come."' The building Itself is the Sea men's Church Institute and there last year no less than 219, S72 lodgings were provided for seamen and no less than 503,720 meals were served. In i?an Francisco similar work has been begun and the secretary in charge is the Rev. Charles P. Deem, formerly connected with the institute in New York. Now the Seamen's Church Instituta is a work of the Episcopal church and it is through the nation-wide cam paign of the Episcopal church that it is proposed to effect recognition of the heroism of merchant seamen in this war, for the nation-wide cam paign is a campaign to enlarge the work of the church and to spread the Seamen's Institute idea to every large port in the country will be considered a necessary part of the work to come. Just now a survey of the situation is being made. ( The Rev. George W. Davenport, executive secretary of the New York Institute, who is associated With the Rev. A. M. Mansfield, In charge of the work, has returned from a visit to the chief ports of the coun try. He finds there is opportunity for work in South Chicago, in Chicago proper. In Gary and in all the lake ports. Some work is being done in Boston, and, as a result of his visit, work has been started on a small scale in Philadelphia. The water front boarding houses situated in New Orleans are reported to be anything but what they should be and the op portunity for service in every port from San Diego to Seattle is great Lastly, in Havana, which Bishop Hulse says is the third largest port on this side of the Atlantic, nothing is being done for seafaring men. The work that the Seamen's Church Institute proposes to do through the nation-wide campaign, is not rescue work. Seamen from strange lands come to strange ports. To give them community life, to provide them with a place where they may get clean lodging and good meals, where they may leave their baggage and receive their mail, where they may read and play billiards or smoke and write home and receive their letters, where they may get employment and attend ance if they are sick, that is the aim of the Seamen's Church Institute. In New York that 'is what it does, and through the nation-wide campaign of the Episcopal church that is what it proposes to do in every port. "It is not rescue work," the Rev. Mr. Davenport is careful to explain, "but it is community work with a re ligious foundation. Upon these men religion is not forced. We do not seek to convert them. We strive to serve them in a Christian spirit." But the figures of church attend ance are striking. At 2S1 services held last year in English the attend ance was 14.389; at seventy Scandi navian services the attendance was 977; at twenty-eight Lettish services the attendance was 511; to two ser vices in the Russian language there came SS men and to three services in Dutch came 75 men. While six chaplains are in constant attendance at the institute their duties are mostly in the nature of social ser vice. To their office, for their help, men come in all their perplexities and each is assisted to the utmost. Nor is that all for there is a house ma tron, too, whose duties it is to make the men feel at home and to give to the institute that intimate and spirit ual touch that only a motherly woman can give. The educational activities of the in stitute are no mean effort, either. To 28 public school lectures there came 3,162 men last year and there were enrolled in the institute's school for navigation and marine engineering no less than 1,679 students. Perhaps long before he can make out the signal ZBH flying from the flag-staff of the Seamen's Church In stitute the sailorman is greeted in New York harbor by a representative of the institute itself, for each day there goes out to meet Incoming steamers the "J. Hooker Hammersley" the Institute's tender. On board may be a chaplain with newspapers and magazines and a cordial invitation to the sailor to make the tall sixteen -story building his home until he sails again. Nor is this all the work among sea men, for 11 it should so Happen tnat the sailorman whilst in port should spread his last sheet of canvas and heave his last log and die a stranger in a strange land he is assured of a decent Christian burial in the plot that the institute has in one of the cemeteries.

The Mexican government has committed an overt act of confiscation in preventing American oil well drillers to work on lands owned by American individuals or companies by sending soldiers into the fields and driving away the work men, state department officials said to day. Complaint was made to the Mex ican government on April 2 of this year, it was learned, against the re fusal of the government to grant permits to the oil companies to drill. No answer was' received until after the Juarez Incident, it was said, and then President Carranza announced no permits, provisional or other, would be granted until the companies had complied with the law. Compliance with the. law. it was said by state department officials would constitute recognition by the companies that the Mexican government owned the oil lands. SARDINIA OFFERS EVERY INDUCEMENT TO AMERICAN TRADER y Rome. July 2. Every attraction for the American trader Market, suffi cient domestic resources to warrant the extension of credit and a sympa thetic clientele. is to be found in Sardinia, according to Dr. Alfred I. Dennis, United Suites commercial at tache after his recent exhaustive stuay of the economic situation in the larger insular possession of Italy. "The Italian mainland, just at pres ent," said Dr. Dennis fr The Asso ciated Press, "has very little that she can exchange with us. America wants her cheese and olive oil but the sup ply of both these commodities is be low the margin of home consump tion. "The situation is much better in Sar dinia. The Island produces cork, olive oil, tomato paste, wool, sheep skins, almonds, canned tunny-fish and pe corino cheese greatly in excess of do mestic requirements. These native products she would gladly exchange for American coal, shoes, agricultural im plements, cheap soap, cutlery and kitchen utensils. Here lies the coin cidence of natural supply and demand which furnish the essential elements for carrying out a true program of barter. "An American steamship service of fering direct trade between New York and Sardinian ports would be a nov elty but, in my opinion would prove a profitable venture. Such an enter prise, of course would postulate the establishment of trade agencies and banking facilities in Sardinia. "I found the people of the island ,o be the simple unspoiled folk and a perfect delight in establishing friendships." TYPHUS IN MEXICO IN ON DECREASE STATISTICS SHOW Mexico City, July 2.
