Have you ever realized the power that music has to carry the memory back years and years until the illusion is so realistic that when your mind returns to its immediate surroundings you realize with a start it was only a day dream-that you were not actual ly and physically where your thoughts were? A few bars from one of the old songs carries you back to the old home. You see the fields, the river, the "ould kirk" in the hazy distance. You almost feel the evening breeze on your cheek and hear the familiar sounds-the lowing of the kine and the bleating of the sheep. You're liv ing again those dear old days just as vividly as you did long ago. Or the strains of an old waltz re mind you of your first dance years and years ago. You live over again the days before the dance when you were so busy getting everything ready and then the great night arrived. You remember your entrance into the bril liant ballroom. You saw all those old friends whom you thought you had forgotten until now. Then the excite ment and the pleasure and the wonder ful dances-the people you met for the first time and the faces yo:u saw for the last time. All this recalled by just a few bars of music. This is one of the reasons why mu sic has such a great hold on people- and why its charm never wearies why solle music no matter how old, no matter how familiar or oft heard. is always new. It is a necessity that there should he such music in every I home, and thanks to the in eoiuity that made possible the talking miachine and the player-piano the musically un- t trained ate not delendent upon their t gifted and tutored friends for this t blessing.-Exchange. HAS FAD FOR COLLECTING Anything Odd or Curious, San Fran. cisco Man Is Eager to Add to His Possessions. "I met a man in San Francisco who goes in for collecting odd things on a large scale," said a traveler. "He has, to begin with, several ropes which 4 have been used to hang celebrated t criminals. In the same room are a number of menus obtained from hotels in various parts of the world. He I places considerable value on several corks which have been pulled from the bottles of wine used on the tables of well-known persons, and a dozen book dedications are considered an impor tant feature of the collection. Some of the autographs in the collection are highly prized because they re quired the expenditure of not a small sum of money and quite a little time. During his travels in foreign lands the collector picked up the thigh bone of a Syrian giant, a chameleon of Bar bary, a great African lizard and a rose which was said to be 100 years old. He even turned his attention to beans, and has ten Chinese beans which are not familiar to the people of this country." Gather Wisdom From Others. It's dangerous policy to consider yourself above the other man's mes sage. If you're so superior your fel lows will never be content to let you sit in silence. Besides if you don't want to listen to what's going on you have no business there. 'Noise made by you will interfere with the hearing of those who do want to learn. You owe it to yourself and athers to pay attention or at least make it possible for others to listen. Besides there are few people that can't learn from oth ers. Don't be a prig. Remember any child can ask questions that will con found the wise. The ordinary speak er may have ideas that need the polish of a Gladstone. You are always a gainer when you get the other man's best. It may be a help to you same day.-Pennsylvania Grit. Those Flattering Films. Next to an unretouched photograph, the moving-picture screen is the great Sest flatterer in the world. It doesn't flatter those who appear in the pic ) tures so much as those who sit in - front and watch them. Nobody can attend a moving-picture show without being reasonably cornt dent that he has assimilated every thing. It is not like the spoken drama, where one learns, on picking up the paper the next morning, that he missed Just about half the subtleties in the performance and came near losing the big idea of the whole thing. Every - thing is right where all of us can get each detail without effort, and in grub bing those details we find great mat ters for seif-congratlation. - Fil Pn. Learn to Be a Listener. The man with brains in his head is a good listener even if he doesn't know what men are t .lking about. It's a pleasure to listen when you're inter ested. The next best thing is to act as though you were. That does not mean that you are to act the hypo crite. It means that you are to put yourself at attention and the chances are that you will become interested. You Just must learn to get interested in what concerns the world. Disregard what interests others and thereby you - make confession that does not count Sto your credit. So even if you can't confess the most lively interest, find I out what there is about the thing that interests others and the result may be a revelation to you. Wonder What Poe Got for It.

WILL PROMOTE EDUCATION, The Significant Movement of the Times Is That of the Centenary of the Methodist Episcopal Church South---Will Spend Mil lions Among the Uneducated. The fact that several thousand sol diers were unable to understand the orders given them from their superiors and that many, many thousands could not sign their own names to their questionnaires brought to light a con dition so serious that two Southern Representatives at Washington are now introducing bills to promote the education of Illiterates throughout the length and breadth of America. Sena. tor Hoke Smith. of Georgia. has intro duced a bill in the Senate "to promote the education of illiterates, of persons unable to understand and use the Eng lish language, and other resident per sne of foreign birth." and the same neasure has been introduced in the House by Hon. William B. Bankhead. of Alabama. The introduction of this important bill means a great deal to the South, which, because of its negroes and mountain whites, has long borne a reputation for illiteracy out of propor tion to that' of the rest of the coun try. Just what steps will be immedi ately taken as the result of the passage of the education of illiterates bill at Washington cannot be stated at this time, but, certainly, practical meas. ures will be put into operation for the establishment of schools in both rural districts and cities. Other organizations besides that of the government are at work on the same problem-the establishment of schools in the heart of tenement dis tricts and rural communities being at matter of first importance with all of them. One of the most significant movements of the times in this con nection is that of the Centenary of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South. because that denomination will expend within the next five years over $3.000,000 among the uneducated classes in the Southern and Western States. The church is to raise a fund of $35,000.000 in an eight-day drive in April, the financial campaign being a part of the Centenary Celebration of the denomination. The money is be ing raised with a view to putting the work of the church on a business bas%, the church considering its duty to the illiterates here in America to be among the matters of first importance which it should undertake. A survey has been made and the result of the campaign will be the apportionment of $3.000.000 among the various illiterate population as follows: Mountain pop ulation, $750,000: immigrant, $900,000; negroes, $500.000; Indians, $150.000; cotton mill population, $150.000; Chrie. tian literature for all of them. $100.000. With the definite step undertaken at Washington, with one denomination already completing its plans for fur thering the work among them, and with other churches and organtzatlons getting ready to join hands in their behalf, it is more than possible that the illiterates of the South are in a fair way to soon become educated eitl sens of the United States. METHODIST LEADERS RETURN FROM FRANCE Three prominent leaders of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South, have just landed in America, after spending two months in Europe, where Sthey went for the purpose of investi gating actual conditions and deciding upon a program for the expenditure of '5,000,000, which sum will be allotted to European upbuilding by the Cente mary Commission of the denomination. The three returning church leadern are Bishop James Atkins, Chairman of the Centenary Commission; Bishop Walter Lambuth, who has been in ls rope for nearly a year in the interest of his church; and Dr. W. W. Pinson, General Secretary of the Mission Board. Dr. Planson and Bishop Atkins re turned to the headquarters of the d nomination at Nashville the latter part of the week, and Bishop Lambuth wdmt directly to his home at Oakdale, Call tornita. While the plans for the European work have not been announced as yet, the returning members of the commis sion say that they have mapped out a very satisfactory program and that five million dollars of the Centenary i fund will be expended in upbuilding schools and churches in the devastatoe lands of Belgium, Italy and France.

After many strange adventures and much ill success. In spite of the recog nition of his claims by the kings of Scotland and France, Perkin, finding himself insufficiently supported in his sorry fraud and realizing that he "had not the heart of a king." nut only "the heart of a weaver's son," made confes sion of his imposture and was im prisoned in the Tower. Soon after, on attempting to escape, he was hanged at Tyburn. finishing with a rope round his neck instead of the promised crown upon his his head. Tomb of Childeric. An interest wholly different from this passing futile deception, however romantic some of Its circumstances may have been, attaches to Tournai when we think of it as the seat of the Merovingian kings. In 1653 some workmen, whilst digging foundations for a hospital, came upon a collection of gold ornaments, a sword mounted J I A··: L ' -..: u. , ~·L· -:: The· Pont de ru vr h sa with gold, some remains of human bones and a gold signet ring bearing the inscription, "Childirici." Here was the key to discovery, for the presence of the ring led experts to consider that this was the burial place of Childeric, king of the Salian Franks, whose capi tal was at Tournai, and who died in 481. This conjecture was further strength ened by an examination of the differ ent objects, which were of such fine workmanship that they could only have been wrought for some great chief or royal personage. The hilt and scabbard of the sword were mounted with gold, enriched with a mosaic of garnets and other precious stones held in gold clolsons. Gold ornaments in the form of bees, and having the wings outlined with an inlay of garnets set in gold, and also a small votive object in the form of a bull's head, with the solar disk on the forehead, recalling Mycenean examples, formed part of the treasure, and on the ring bearing the king's name was engraved the head of a man with the long, straight hair worn by the Merovingians, and with the gold torque or collar round his neck. Perhaps this was meant for a representation, as near as might be, of Childeric. This rare treasure, after changing hands two or three times, eventually found its way to the Cabinet des Me dailies, Paris. In 1831 thieves, in an evil hour, broke in and stole almost the whole of it, leaving behind them only the mounting of the sword, twoI golden bees, a fibula and a few stray fragments.

CANNOT RANK AS DIPLOMAT General Smuts Disqualified Himself bthroug His Unseemly Employment of Plain Language. The language of the law is the most formal in the world and the most pre cise. It seeks the definite so ardently that, with its repetitions and where ases, it confuses its own idual. But the fate of an only that rang on ther perverted form of in tellect, the legal mind, can wind through its labyrinthine verbiage. The language of diplomacy, borrowing something of formality from the law, Is nevertheless far more dignified. The law deals merely with estates and pri vate contracts. It decrees the fate of the Individual. But the fate of na. tions may hang on the phraseology of dinlomacy. Its greater importance has imp'trted to its diction greater dignity. And the purpose of words in diplomat ic exchanges being to conceal thought. as Talleyrand said, the language of chancelleries is far more liquid. It must At the cast of the particular die into which it is poured. So we must conclude that General Smuts is not a diplomat. He has not the diplomatic method of expression. When the general met a diplomat. trained in the 'chool of Metternich, to discuss informally a separate peace with Austria, he put the question of such a peace squarely to the be rihboned, bestarred representative. There was hesitation and equivoca tion. "Good-night !" was the gen. ral's exclamation as he left the conause'l diplomat. General Smuts may not wear shirt sleeves in diplomatic councils. but this use of the vernacular shows that his verbiage at least takes its coat off. The acid totcts of a bit of Wi:ne put an end to the prolonged ambigul ties and deceits of which diploxacy is so fond. His Retort. "You should work for something be sides money."

There is no more appetizing di sh than fresh fish caught and cooked within an hour. To broil, split the fish from the head to the tall, wipe it dry and season well with salt and pepper. Grease the broiler and cook over a good heat, turning the broiler so that the fish will be evenly cooked. Baked White Fish.-Clean the white fish and stuff with a crumh dressing well-seasoned with onion and sage, it liked. Roast or bake like meat. Steamed Fih.--Arrange the body of the fish in a circle, ipour over it a cupful of good vinegar, seasoned with pepper and salt; let it stanm an hour in a cool place, pour off the vinegar and stearmn twenty minutes, or longer if a large fish. When the meat is easily separated from the bones it is done. Too long cooking wlfl destroy the flavor, but under-done fLish is most unpalatable. Drain well and serve on a neatly folded napkin or fish cloth. Garnish the platter with parsley. Baked Salt Mackerel.-Soak the fish over night skin side up to remove all salt. Place in a dripping pan with a thin covering of sweet or sour cream; bake until the meat separates from the bones. Boiled Fresh Cod.-Place the fish tied in a cloth with a little salt and scraped horseradish. Let simmer in water until done. Serve on a folded napftin with a drawn butter sauce passed In a sauceioat. A white sauce with chopped, hard-cooked egg is an other well-liked for boiled fish. Breakfast Codflish.-Plck up salt codfish into small hits and soak over night in cold water. Heat- some milk, a bit of butter and when hot add the fish which has been squeezed dry; when boiling hot add a little flour mixed with cold milk and cook until thick, or an egg may be used in place of the flour. Serve at once. Quite Unprepared. Conlin (visiting sick friend, solemn ly)-Don't think I'm lookin' f'r th' worst t' happen, Dhiny, but it's rr yer own good I'm asking it-are ye pre pared?
