Itc • month Italian doctors say that a post-mortem examination of Caruso's throat showed that hi* vocal cords were twice the normal length. Caruso's lung power also was phenomenal. His lungs were so strong, so energy-creating that he could make the cords of a piano vibrate by merely breathing on them. "Caruso." say the learned doctors, "was a magnificent ringing machine, from head to foot. That explains why k« was a master singer." The doctors are wrong. Caruso was the greatest singer of all the 1,C00,000,000 people on earth. But, unques tionably. there were thousands of others whose lungs, vocal cords and so on were the equal of Caruso's. Did you ever hear of them as singers? No. Without this equipment, Caruso would not have been a great singer. But the thing that made him a marvel of Mg was his brain, his personality, his soul, if you please. Wheel a piano on a stage. Bring oat Paderewski. He "can make the piano talk.** That is genius. Millions of •titer piano players can use the name piano and produce •aly mediocre music. So with the physical or bodily instruments of music, possessed by Caruso. His music was in his soul. You can't (day the finest harp with a hammer. Your body has been defined by philosophers as M the temple of your souL" It is the machine thru which your Mai expresses itself. Using yoar body as a machine or a fine collection of tools, you can accomplish things that others could not do with the same equipment The great driving force of personality is separate from the body. The body goes back to dust. The mysterious spiritual Wag —which uses the body to express itself—goes on forever. No dissecting knife, no microscope can explain it. Some folks dance as if every bone in their body had gone to their head. Nights are getting so short bootleggers must go to i oork before dark. The first chicken ruined the first man's garden.

THE SEATTLE STAR THEY play no famous part at all in mighty foreign tnpa; They never sail the waters of an Orient lagoon; They never know the glory of the fleet of splendid ships That sweep the seven seas which answer to the moon. T TP Into the Northland where the silver horde had run These orphans of the ocean crossed the far Alaskan bars; On the bosom of the sea, when the web of dsy was spun. They sailed their lonely courses underneath the silent stars. RETURNING to a harbor that can know no ruder tides Than the wash of quiet waters in their endless ebb and flow, This little fleet of vessels, steeped in winter slumber, hides, Unnoticed in its dreaming of the seas the Northlands know. THEY found the spell of living in those distant northern sens That grips their navigators like a tempered iron chain; No word* can tell the secret of the ocean mysteries That lure them from their harbor when the spring has come again. PREPARING for their journey to the land of silent stars. These ships arc taking part again in life at crowded piers New rigginsr for the sheets of sail and cleanly-painted spars For soon they will bo leaving for the last of God's frontiers.
