VOL XXVII JULY 10. 1919 No. 9 A COMPLIMENT TO NEW ORLEANS. In one of its leading articles "Associate advertising," the leading journal of the world devoted to advertising and the official journal of the advertis ing clubs of the world, has the following article, which is not only compli mentary to our efforts during the past fifteen years, but it shows that we are now thoroughly advertised throughout the country as one of the indus trial centers. The article in speaking of the coming convention to be held here in September says: "While those who will visit the New Orleans convention in September are not especially concerned with the manner in which the Advertising Club of New Orleans raised funds for the entertainment of visitors, it is interest ing to note that the $50.000 which the club expects to use was got together before the convention in San Francisco, last year, to which New Orleans men went to obtain the 1919 meeting. ( That is indicative of the modern spirit of New Orleans. It is this fame spirit which has found a way to provide adequate drain age for a great city which lies below the level of the Mississippi River; the spirit which has built more than fourteen miles of steel and concrete docks and more than twenty-five miles of modern wharves; the spirit which is cutting a great canal from the Mississippi to Lake Pontchartrain; the spirit which, when the people found rats injurious to the city's health and pro gress, prompted the expenditure of $9,000,000 to be rid of the dangerous rodents; the spirit which has substituted the romance of business for the romance of Old New Orleans-which is building a great city upon the prin ciple that service is the foundation for success. Service-why, a ship loaded with bananas which arrives at a dock at 8 o'clock this morning, will have given up its entire cargo by 6 o'clock this evening (150 carloads), and the fruit goes on its way in just ten hours. These fruit docks, and miles of other docks, are the property of the city. Still, the manner in which such large quantities of fruit are handled by automatic conveyors is really not more remarkable than other methods which the City of New Orleans employs in the service of the territory which it seeks to serve. Romance-modern romance-the romance of business! That is what will be seen and experienced by all the delegates to the convention at New Orleans.. A hustling, bustling, busy city. WHY? AND WHY NOT? On the first day of Congress more than 1.200 bills were introduced in the House of Representatives. S The Grand Army Post at Montclair, N. J., having been reduced to seven members, decided to make its last parade on Memorial Day. The cries of hungry babies in Chicago were drowned by the crashing of breaking bottles of milk, broken by sympathizers with the milk driver's strike. A woman at Pontiac, Ill., waS recently found guilty of attempting to ex- t tort $2,500 from an aged lady by writing a letter threatening to kill her if t the money was not paid. t At a conference of nineteen Republican leaders in New Jersey, sixteen expressed a preference for Major-General Leonard Wood as the Republican v Presidential nominee. Mayor Hanson of Seattle says: "Politicians are all cowardly and they are just as cowardly in the White House as in a little city hall. They are I afraid of the labor votes." A court In Chicago was recently called upon to settle a dispute between a man and his wife over the question as to whether the wash-rag should be hung in the kitchen or the bathroom. Colonel William J. Donovan of the Old Sixty-ninth Regiment denounces as "lap dog" patriotism, babying tactics that are being employed by many toward the returned soldier." On the last trip of the steamer George Washington to France with Presi- E dent Wilson, an orchestra in a hotel at New Brunswick, N. J., was clearly 5 heard by wireless telephone on the vessel 600 miles at sea. United States Attorney General Palmer holds that the Internal Revenue Bureau has no authority to regulate traffic in any liquor except wines, malt liquors and spirits, and is not empowered to make any ruling on the produc- a tion of hard cider. Very Rev. T. J. Larkin, S. M., has at last been able to sail for his be loved country. On account of the un settled condition of affairs in Ireland the lhglish government has sur rounded the issuing of passport, with so many precautions that it makes this document a thing of luxury. Well it is all over now, and Father Larkin will soon be enjoying himself in his home town and with his own people. Rev. Father Dunn, S. M., from Jef terson College replaced Father Petit, who was in 'Jackson, Miss., not Lou. Islana as some people thought, for a Fourth Degree initiation of the Knights of Columbus. Father Howe, 8. M., an old Algiers boy is spending his vacation at Our Lady of Good Counsel Church, help ,inag out Father Hefferman and replac lag Father Ethier, who is taking a short vacation after his strenuous work of staging "Veronica's Veil" for the American Red Cross. Very Rev. Father Plassmans, S. M., v of St. Charles Borromeo, Prov R, . I., and formely pastor of St. Joseph's Paulan, is spending a lsw days in his old parish with "htR> Caassage S. Mi. Father Plas 'lr was stationed for thirteen years at Paulina; and was transferred teet there to Lawrence. Mass., to ans charse of the largest parish of the Marist Fnthers in America. After sevee or eight strenuous years, and seoesestul work in that large field pes 'was started nto Providence, S~-I Gla-sse **g R. I., and he was selected to lay the foundations of what will soon be one of the finest churches in America. Father Plasmans is an indefatigable worker and a most popular pastor. le has made a world of friends in Provi dence, and has built up for himself and his people a monument that will speak more eloquently than words of the great qualities of a great man. He is now spending a few days in his old parish renewing old acquaintances and resting himself preparatory to a big drive he is to stage as soon as he returns to his people. HOLY NAME SOCIETt.

The dead bell of Dunblane (Scot land) cathedral and the sand-glass fo. merly in use in the pulpit have been presented to the kirk session by the family in whose possession they were for many years The dead bell Is dated 1613, and was used at funer. als in the parish, a small fee being charged by the kirk session for its. Use. The beadle rang the bell through the town when he proclaimed a death, again when the arrangements. for the funeral were to be made known, and again when he walked at the head of the funeral procesleo. The mand-glass dates from 1702, runs for about 20 minaters ad Jt was no un usual thing for it to be turned two or three times during a sermon. The gifts are being exhibited in a specially esonutructed case in the cathedraL Hens Have a Town Crier. The ofcers of the regiment have mothing on the burgomaster of Polch w.hen it comes to having a striker.

A tailor named Higgins, who had made a fortune selling these arti cles of apparel, built a home in that particular part of London in 1680 and called it Picadilla hall, hence the name Picadilly.

COULD READILY BELIEVE IT Stage Driver Quite Willing to Accept "Keeper's" Explanation as He Understcod It, The New Englander uses the word "natural" to describe one who was unfurnished at birth with the usual and Indispensable quantity of brains. Prof. Iturt G. Wilder, the distinguish ed zoologist, tells an amusing story that turns on a countryman's mistak ing the unfamiliar word "naturalist" for the familiar word "natural." A few years after his arrival in America, Agassiz was one of a small party of Harvard professors who traversed the White Mountain region in a carriage driven by the country man. Three of them were vivacious, restless, and on the lookout for speci mens. They would call a halt, leap from the vehicle before it -stopped, dash over the fields, and return with prizes in their boxes, in their hands and pockets, and even pinned upon their hats. The fourth, Prof. Felton, the brother-in-law of Agussiz, sat quietly in his corner of the carriage reading a favorite Greek author. When the bewildered driver could stand it no longer be elicited from Felton information that led him to view the behavior of the others with compa~ulonate toleration. At the close of the day he thus conveyed his in terpretation to the innkeeper: "I drove the queerest lot you ever saw. They chattered like monkeys. They woubln't keep still. They jump ed the fences, tore about the fields, and came back with their hats cover ed with hugs. I asked their keeper what ailed them; he said they was naturals, and, judgin' from the way they acted, I should say they was." Youths' Companion. a MUCH DIFFERENCE IN HUMOR e Brand Highly Thought Of In One Coun try Is Not Always Appreciated in Others. When Coleridge said, "No mind Is thoroughly well organized that is de I flclent in the sense of humor," he ex pressed a conviction that seems com mon to all civilized men, and makes n each nation take pride in its humor and perhaps suspect that other nations enjoy a somewhat inferior brand. Yet comparisons of humor shows, broadly u speaking, that the peoples of the world I are much alike. In the Tourist, pub lished in Tokyo, a Japanese author, for example, remarks that humor "is in. s deed the flower of life, and life with out it would be as dreary as spring without its blossoms. To illustrate, he translates a number of Japanese anec t dotes, "funny stories," as the United States might call them, but one does not smile over them. Neither, on see ond thought, does one smile over many of the "funny stories" in American magazines and newspapers. Humor which really amuses is everywhere rare and precious, a "flower of life," as the Japanese gentleman poetically puts it, but growing up in company with a great many weeds.-Christian Science Monitor. The Qualer Bonnet. I have heard that there is as much technique in the making of the bonnet of the olden pattern for the Friends as there is in the Japanese art of drinking tea. In Ohio there is a sec tion that wears the Quaker garb with the bonnet; there is another in Iowa that still keeps to the characteristic costume; in NewYork in a settlement on both sides of Lake Cayuga are Friends who follow the simple, historic fash ion; and in Fairhope, Ala., a single tax settlement very largely settled by Friends, are others. Much Importance is attached to what is called the "ex pression" of the bonnet. In thi very simplicity there is quite as much room for the manifestation of a particular taste as in the more elaborate millin ery of "the world's people." Even to half a hair things must be right The finished product comes in for a close critical scrutiny at every possible an gle. The true Friend abhors display and self-advertisement, and, therefore, she does not care to have it known when a fresh bonnet is bought. That is why each must be the same as the one that preceded it.-Philadelphia Pubile Ledger. Rooster Ate 41 Kernels. A storekeeper at Montgomery City has sprung a new one in the guessing game. He took a big rooster and, af ter letting him fast for a day, put him in his show window with a large pan of corn, the kernels of which had been counted. He offered a prise to the persons guessing nearest the number of grains the rooster would eat in 20 minutes. The rooster had a ravenous appetite and for five minutes it looked as if there would not be a. single kernel left. But by the time the 20 minutes had elapsed he had curled up In a corner. He had succeeded in putting away 486 grains. A woman whose guess was 488 got the prize.-Kansas City Times. Tombstone's Weird Stain. - In the village churchyard at Her brandston, near Milford Haven, there Is the grave of a young army oficer (at one time stationed with his retg pent at South Hook Fort, close by) who met death from a wound by a knife while playing a praetical joke on a brother officer.
