BRAVE SONS OF FAR WEST furJr r ip isTm - ' m n iimi UUIUIIIUU u Proam i UUI Company Boys' Sole Object In Going to War, Like That of Others, la to "Can the Kaiser." MaJ. E. Alexander Powell, In Scrtb aer's Magazine, says "it has been my good fortune to have marched with many armies, but none of them lias given me the thrill of pride which runs up my tiplue when I eee these loose liiubed, brown-faced, clear-eyed eons of the far West go swinging by under the slanting lines of steel. "They are for the most part eerlous looking, with a curious set expression about them which makes you feel that, though they realize the immense dlfll eulty of the tusk for which they are preparing, they Intend to see it fin ished, no matter how long It may take. Just as their fathers carried the frontier of civilization westward from the Mississippi, bo these, their eons, are going to push that same frontier from the Rhine. "Rut that isn't the way that they would put it. Should you ask them what they are fighting for, they will Bay nothing about the liberty of small peoples or about making the world safe for democracy. They will assure you that their sole object in going to war Is 'to can the kaiser.' And, upon thinking it over. It Beems to me that their answer, though somewhat lnele gautly phrased, perhaps, expresses the sentiments of all of us." p ffr' il WhimiA WsJHi."J V, fl' . v ' vl'i'n Ntipiipr L'rlonP" These five-foot shells nre being beu'ed to a Canadian dump, whence th will be fed to the Huns ou the west trotti English Violinist Declares Winsome Notes Can Be Displayed to Eys as Vell as to Ear. That music may be translated Into color and displayed to the eye as well as to the ear Is the new and highly i Interesting theory developed by Isa-1 dore Berger, the English violinist, aci cording to the Pittsburgh Gazette. Music and color, he declares, express exactly the same emotions and feel ings, and therefore an opera or a uymphony may actuully be turned into color and seen. I5y understanding the Interrelation of color and sound even the deaf can learn to enjoy music when expressed In color. Mr. Berger Rnys : "Color is not to be an accompanb ment nor a mere light effect, but .a clear, logical expression of music. Tha synchronism must be perceived emo tionally rather than scientifically. For Instance, red always expresses passion, anger, temper or any Intense feeling. Yellow, the color of light, means love and happiness. Blue Is the mystic color. Modify the yellow of love with the mystic blue and you have a "violet, a pensive, sad emotion. All the othei grades of emotion ore the result of the blending of passion, mystery and love, or red, blue and yellow. They are three primary colors and the three primary emotions." , Uniforms Too Tight The army council order about the tightness and fitting of soldiers' uni forms led to expert discussion as to which forco has the best, says the London Chronicle. Wounded otflcers with experience rauglng from Bagdad to Ypres voted for the Australian. Its shlrtlike tunic with buttoned sleeves Is Ideally workmanlike. The Norfolk jacket-like waistband gives trlmness without necessitating the wearing of a belt And Just as unanimously expert opinion declared the U. S. A. uniform the worst "It's too tight It's skin tight. Bless you, the pockets won't hold anything they're for appearance. You couldn't cram a handkerchief la one. And I used to carry quite comfortably a pair of socks, a couple of Mills grenades, a tin of bully, chocolate, cigarettes, and my revolver In one elde of my jacket "A thing in your pocket Is worth a stone in your haversack."
