HAS BOTH MEMORY AND SCAR Two Excellent Reasons Why One Man Will Remember That He Was Kicked by a Mule. A kick from a mule is guaranteed to make Just about as much impres sion on the memory as It does on the anatomy. Yet Clyde D. Jarvls has made sure that be will not forget the kick he received from a Missouri beast of burden for the rest ot his natural life. Jarvls applied at Houston, Texa* for enlistment In the marine corps and was accepted. He exhibited a scar about six inches long on the left side ot his abdomen, and explained It was the result of an operation be had undergone some six months before, for a supposed ruptured spleen, fol lowing the kick from the mule. The operating surgeon had made the wrong diagnosis, however, and found that Jarvts* spleen was O. K. Tattooed above the scar la large let ters were the words, "Opened ta take."

H. SMITH, Treas. City of Hope. LETTER "R" NOT POPULAR Many Wrltero Would View With Equanimity Its Complete Disappear, ance From the Language. In a tract recently Issued under the auspices of the Society for Pure Eng lish, Dr. Robert Bridges deplores the practical disappearance of the letter from the speech of southern English, men, according to the Manchester Guardian. Yet some people would be disposed te regard the extinction of this letter with composure or even ap proval. John Aubrey, for Instance, ap pears to have nursed a prejudice against those whe sound It too promi nently In their speech. In his "Lives" Aubrey animadverts on the fact that "Milton pronounced the letter (lit tera canlna) very hard—a certain sign ot a satyrlcali wltt" hi Germany the "canine letter" has found many enemies, who maintain that Its abounding employment largely accounts for the ruggedness of Teu tonic speech. Some writers have gone so far as.to produce works from which It Is entirely banished—a remarkably difficult feat seeing that It figures In about 60 per cent of German words. Two minor luminaries of the eight eenth century, Brockes and Gottlieb Burmann, wrote a number at poems from which the letter Is deliberately excluded, so as te produce an atmos phere of "sweetness and light" These facts were eclipsed by a nine* teenth century author. Grans Rlttler, who held the letter In aversion, thtmgh It appears twice In his own surname. Ha published two novels "Die Zwll linge" and "Llsette und Wilhelm," in which ne can be found. Paul van Schenthau and Lea Kobe are responsible for similar works on a lesser scale. KING ALFONSO'S FIRST SMOKE Experience of Spanish Monarch Very Much Like That of Mme Amerl. can Small Boya King Alfonso has been telling the story of his first cigarette. The Incident It appears occurred Immediately after he bad been formal ly enthroned as king ot Spain when attaining bis majority on bis •t*tfi»ntli birthday. Up te that time he had not been al lowed te smoke, nor even then was the prohibition withdrawn. Nevertheless, be came to the conclusion that as a ruling monarch, he might at least do as he liked Is this respect Accordingly be asked his brother-in law, the prince ot Asturlas, for a cigarette.

"1 haven't got one," said the prince, faithful to family orders. Then the king applied te the officer of the guard, who said solemnly: "I regret that I do not smoke them, your majesty." At last the young king made his way to the sentry at the palace door, who amiably produced a plug of black to bacco from his trousers pocket and rolled a cigarette for his majesty, who smoked It proudly through the palace. "It made me violently sick later on," he said In telling the story "but I enjoyed It at the time. I felt as I puffed and puffed, that I was really and truly grown up at last" Supplying Palestine With Water. From the average yearly rainfall of 26 Inches enough water could be stored up In Palestine to support a population of 15,000,000, according to James Haines, secretary of the Zion ist Society of Engineers, which Is lay ing pluus for a water supply system for the Holy land as part-of the restor ation work necessary to make the land ready to receive the hundreds of thousands of Jews from all over the world who will emigrate there as soon as the political status of the country is cleared up. Allowing for a 50 per cent loss through evaporation and running off, Mr. Haines has figured that the yearly rainfall over the 20,000 square miles of Palestine will provide ,a future pop ulation of 6,000,000 with a daily per capita supply of 2,055 gallons. The •average daily consumption In New York at present is estimated at about 800 gallons per capita. "8llly Old Fool." Of the stories told by Mr. Pett Ridge, the popular author, one of the best, perhaps, Is of an Incident whicb occurred outside a London railway sta tion. "I wanted a taxlcab," says Mr. Ridge. "A small boy ran to fetch one and came back with it holding the handle of the door as a signal of tem porary ownership. As the cab pulled up a bigger lad tried to obtain posses sion of the handle. "Out of It I* ordered the young boy, aggrievedly. "I was the one sent to get the taxi for the silly old fool"—he turned to me and touched his cap re spectfully—"wasn't I, sir?"—London Tit-Bits. Among Humorist*. "Ever borrow an idea?" asked the young husband. "Among us professionals It Is con sidered permissible to borrow back and forth," said the old timer. "How ever, I ,hope you'll avoid something a friend of mine once did, and has been sorry for ever since." "What was that?" "He stole a Joke from a religious paper."—Louisville Courier-Journal.

The picturesque water, vender with his pigskin pack on his back, as well as the more charming picture of the native virgin carrying a water Jar on her head, will soon be but a memory In Jerusalem.
