Prof. Sir Arthur „Quilier-Couch, in flie course of his lively lectures "On the Art of Reading," gives .some examples of Irish peasants' sayings with the large simplicity, the cadence, the accent of Scriptural si>eech. The best Is the benediction bestowed upon one of the two authors of the incom parable "Irish R. M." by an old wom an in Skibbereen: "Sure ye're always laughing! That ye may laugli in the sight of the glory of heaven !" The writer once thought of making an an thology of such wild flowers of way side speech. He wonjd have included in it sonic far-traveled say^pgs. such as that of the freighter in the alkaline districts of Aiheria.'who said, point ing With his whip to an intensely blue lake on the horizon, "Bitter as a dy ing man's sweat is that same water," and th(> perfect definition of a ghost implied in the words of a Newfound land fisherman, "There I sees 'em wanning themselves in the moon light." • ' Very Absent.

The younger critics, says Heywood Broun, are the lineal descendants of that little child in Anderson's fairy tale who, when the emperor was be ing made a spectacle of and all the world was being fooled by the sharp tailor, refused to be quiet and cried out. "He hasn't got anything on." These young enthusiasts who have no posi tions to lose and no dignities to live up to go about pointing to all our literary emperors and calling attention to the scantiness of their attire of greatness, and refuse to be silenced by their scandalized or terrified elders. Good sense bids us welcome their hon est gaze at even the sacrosanct per sons. It can't hurt anything really fine, and it's about time we came out of some of our illusions. William Al len White sized it up about right from the conservative point of view when he said in praising "Main Street": "Of Course, I'm on the other side of the street myself, hot that's just the rea son why I like this book. It gives us fellows something to answer." • About 70 periodicals printed in Es peranto, the so-called universal lan guage, are now published. i SERIOUS UPRISING IN 5! 01 SEVENTY-FIVE LEAGUE OF NA TIONS TROOPS ARE KILLED AND 150 INJURED. GERMANY OFFERS POLICE GeneraT Martino, Acting Commander in Chief Has Asked the Italian Embassy For Relief—Poles Cap ture Italian Artillery. Berlin.—According to the latest fig ures 75 League of Nations troops have been killed and 150 wounded during clashes with Poles in the Up per Silesian uprising. The heaviest fighting occurred near Ratibor where the Italians were fofeed to ask an armistice in order to withdraw into the town. At night the Italians at tempted a sortie across the river, leaving with their artillery, but they were attacked by an overwhelming force and were forced to retire. The Poles captured the Italian artillery and advanced nearer Ratibor. The Italians, having received reinforce ments, took a stand and drove the Poles off. The Italian casualties in the Pless, Rybnik, and Ratibor districts totals two officers and 35 men killed and 4» men wounded.

Korfantry, the Polish plebscite commissioner, after declaring him self dictator, has established head quarters at Ejchenau Kattawitz and has sent the Inter-allied Plebscite Commission an ultimatum demanding that martial law be suspended, that the inter-allied troops remain neutral, and that the German press be sup pressed.

FOREIGN GOODS ARE FLOODING AMERICA AMERICAN MANUFACTURERS ARE BEING UNDERSOLD AND BE COMING ALARMED. Washington.—That the anti-dump ing provision of the emergency tariff bill will not halt the present under selling of American products by fore*gn products in American markets was admitted by Senator McCumber of North Dakota, ranking Republican member of the Finance Committee, in opening the debate on the measure iu the Sènate. This underselling will continue in increasing volume until American prices fall and American wages are lowered or until the tariff on the com peting foreign products is raised. Such protection will be afforded agri cultural products by the emergency tariff bill and other products, it is con templated. by the permanent tariff law to be enacted -several months hence. The anti dumping section provides an additional duty to be assessed on foreign goods dumped on American markets at prices below the home market value. It will be ineffective because no foreign goods are being dumped in America and will not be until conditions radically change. Foreign goods are not being dump ed here because it is not necessary to do so. American prices are so much high er than foreign prices that the for eign goods can be sold in the United States for more than they would have brought at home and still undersell American competitors. With the foreign goods sold here at prices no les sthan the ffiomo market value the provision of the anti-dumping section will not apply to such imports. German products are reaching American markets in volume, rapidly approaching the pre-war figure, and American industries are alarmed by fears of the effort of German compe tition, but the protection sought can be afforded only by the permanent tariff legislation. "I think every man in the Senate realizes the condition of the indus tries throughout the United States at the present time," said Senator Mc Cumber. "While we have recognized that industries in every line were suf fering from the reaction after the war, it was well known that the agri cultural industry was suffering more than any other. While the farmers' products had gone down from one third to one-half'in price, everything the farmer had to purchase remained at the old price. • , Veteran Aids Comrade.
