Do you want to be of service to your town, your home, your children, and the future citizenship of Columbus? Do you love the city and want to contribute to its welfare? If so, join the Civic Improvement League, that is just now in the initiative, in connection with the Chamber of Commerce. The object of this organization is .0 make Columbus a prettier, healthier and more de- sireaV.le place to live. We want one of the old est and richest towns in the state. Vast agricul tural resources are at our command. Nature has been lavish in her gifts, but as citizens we have not done our part, be it said to our shame. Why should we have to go to other cities not so fortunate, to learn to park our streets, and pave our thoroughfares? Columbus did not enter the cleaner cities contest because we were not alive and at work to reach greater achievements along conditions of the physical beauty of our city. Our aesthe tic nature? have been asleep as it were, and as a consequence we are fnr behind in creating a city beautiful. However, the golden opportunity is at hand, .and those who will may help by joinint? in the movement. With two or three hundrei exponents of cleanliness to help to create sen sitiveness to the needs of Columbus, a grea transformation will take place. The streets wil be clean, lawns and flower beds will bloom nml Ci.hinihns will, with their Chamber o Commerce in the lead, have established bettc civic conditions. There will be another meeting of the Civic Improvement League on Friday morning at 10 o'clock and all the ladies of Columbus are urged to be present. Don't let frivilous matters keep you at home. IS I i A VVEAKNUS? Not enough attention has been given to the extention of military training, not as u war measure, but as a domestic reform. With an adequate navy we do not greatly have to fear what any other nation can do to us. Hut navy, or no navy, we do have to fear what we do to ourselves. The world certainly yields to none in ita support of the personal liberty, of our citizens. ut we believe that, to be a blessing, personal iberty must go hand in hand with personal discipline; that when it fails to do this it im mediately tends to degenerate into irresponsi ble license.

It ia chiefly B iue.-tion of e'er- '6 trie current to create the electric, wnvea to transport the sound. It wan found that the electric current in a wire became too weak to perform its functions after a certain ciistance. Four "booster stations" were estab lished between New York and San Francisco to Arengthen the current when it began to grow too weak to carry the vibrations on the diarhru- ments in the telephone. The result was that the current never grew in adequate to create the necessary waves. The engineers, I think, fig ured that they could save wire ex pense and other charges by having these "booster stations" supply the current to wireless stations, and that happy thought solved the problem." 5 wv I if 5 ft), I n B x Sro Our NYv x ROOMS ROOMS Furnished or unfur nished, for young men, or for light This amazing prophecy for the fu- housekeeping.
