V. irosjeab editor. *;e Tegjetlu. As programmed two conventions are to be held in New Orleans Sat urday, Nov. 29. In one convention the Ransdell Humphries bill is to be considered, and in the other the %ewlands bill is to be advocated, each aiming at the securing of an appropriation by Congress for the improvement of the Mississippi River and to estab lish a system of levess for the pro tection of the States which are an nually threatened by flood. It is surprising that there is any division on so important an issue, which affects so great interests and in which the welfare of millions of people are involved. The Caucasian in a review of the conditions, as they are, has suggest ed the getting together of the two conventions into one in order that discord and contention may be avoided and that the two resolve on some action that will secure the success of a project which is de pendent for success on the appro priation of $60,000,000 by Congress. As in unity of purpose and of ac tion there is strength, quibbling and personalities should be avoided, suppressedtand subordinated to the success of this achievement. Get together.

He has shown up strikingly well in the big games. Gilman plays at tackle and is very successful in breaking through inter ierece and nailing the man with the ball. As to "Chubby Charley." We understand that Chicago fans are pledicting that the name of Charles W. Mu.phy will be erased off major league baseball within another year, more or leas, writes Jack West The owner of the Chicago Cubs has sailed from New York for a sojourn in BErope, and 'tis said that the Opllowers of the national pastime are not regretting the loss of Murphy in the least Because the Cubs failed to falsh the 1918 baseball season better than third, Cholly is enabled to go abe*t his business without creating any too much excitement. We are also put hep to the fact that Windy City newspapers have refused to publish Murph's homemade press notiees, while some critics are positive in.their assertions that Murphy will sel out his stock of the Bearlets either before or after the 1914 campaign. wLuShy was anxious to have a pen anat winnlng ball club last year, and abbeggh Johnny Evers made as good a showiag with his team as could be ex pqcted, Charles W. was not any too b satisfied with the final standing at .te aggregation representing old Chi 1n the National league. It selems as if Murphy has made quite a etis miney out of baseball, and now that the Chicago press is "panning" MAl. he ean afford to sell out and not get any the worst of it.

New England eyeglasses are so form ed that when not in use and folded they resemble a locket and may be worn on a chain for an ornament. A Belgian firm has adopted the ex pedient of storing its valuable draw ings and other papers in terra cotta pipes for preservation against fire. The total money loss caused by the Ohio valley floods last March was $163,000,000. according to an estimate by the United States weather bureau. Oils distilled from the needles of spruce and fig trees are being used to scent petroleum floor oils, which are sometimes objectionable on account of their odor. Although there are nearly 53,000,000 sheep in the United States they rep reseAt less than 5 per cent of the total number of domestic animals on the country's farms. Advancing prices of horses and mules from the United States has led Guadeloupe to purchase many animals from South America. The South Amer ican mules are smaller. Twenty-nine million dollars is soon to be spent on public works in Moroc co. Of this $10,000,000 will be for port works at Casablanca and $500.000 for prisons and courts of justice. In every 1,000 marriages solemnized in Great Britain, twenty-one are be tween first cousins. Among the no bility therate is much higher, amount ing to forty-five in a thousand. In most parts of China wood is very scarce and costly. Most of the trees were cut down long ago, and every year dry leaves and grass are raked and gathered with the utmost care. The white marble of which the great $2,000,000 Lincoln Memorial temple is to be built on the banks of the Poto mac in Washington is to come from, the Sopris national forest, Colorado. Business in the vicinity of Shanghai. China, was almost entirely suspended from November. 1911, to the end of February, 1912, because of the revolu tion. Business is now normal again. Three states have been added during the year to the number of states now using either the indeterminate sen tence, probation or parole systems. These are Maine, Nevada and Oregon. Students from India studying in this country have organized a Hindustan Association of the United States of America, to furnish information about educational facilities at American uni versities and colleges to other young men in India. The Denver Council of Jewish Wo men has now organized a consumptive relief society. This society has built a sanitarium, costing $107,000, which accommodates 140 patients. Race or religion has nothing to do with their ad mission, and no payment is required. Many American articles are at a dis advantage in Holland because they are not imported directly. They enter England free of duty,) but the repack ing, additional transportation and im port duty on entering Holland nearly double the price asked for them in England., A record session of chess was held recently in a game between Frank J. Marshall, the American champion, and O. Duras, the Bohemian champion. Marshall won after a ten hours' con test, in which the loser took forty eight minutes for the consideration of one move. The tunnel between England and France would cost $80,000,000. It would be thirty miles long, twenty four of these under water, most of the distance 100 feet below the level of the channel. Each of the two tubes would be eighteen feet in diameter and thirty-six feet apart, measured center to center. Firemen in Amsterdam have little idle time. Many of them are skilled workmen.

II Q by American PIess Association. Dudley Field Malone. the new col lector of customs at the port of New York, was third assistant secretary of state when named for the more impor tant office. IIe succeeds John I'urroy Mitchel, recently elected mayor of New York city. MIr. Malone was one of the original Wilson men. HIe ac companied the president on many of his pre-election trips and made many speeches in his behalf. IIe was prom inent on Mr. Wilson's behalf at the Baltimore convention and shortly after Mr. Wilson's election was appointed by the president to the department of state. At that time Mr. Malone was assistant corporation counsel of New York. Mr. Malone was born in New York city thirty-three years ago. He was graduated from St. Francis Xavier's college in 1905 and from the Fordham law school two years later. Following his admission to the bar he practiced law until appointed assistant corpora tion counsel by the late Mayor Gaynor. In 1908 Mr. Malone married Miss Mary O'Gorman, daughter of United States Senator O'Gorman of New York. Mr. Malone is an orator of ability and will doubtless be a promi nent figure in the Democratic party of New York. An American Diplomat. While ordinarily the work of Uncle Sam's representatives to foreign na tions is much on the humdrum order, such has not been the case with Charge d'Affaires Nelson O'Shaughnes sy of the American embassy at Mexico City. Since Ambassador H. L. Wilson was recalled from Mexico Mr. O'Shaughnessy has been beset by dif ficulties, and Huerta's defiant attitude has called for diplomatic skill of the highest order. It was Mr. O'Shaugh nessy, who delivered President Wil son's ultimatum to Huerta. Mr. O'Shaughnessy is thirty-seven years old and is the son of one of the principal promoters of the Nicaragua canal, who lost his fortune in the col lapse of that enterprise. He attended Georgetown college and obtained a de gree at Oxford, afterward studying in ternational law in London, and living on the continent until he acquired sev NELSON O SHAUGENSSY. eral languages. He entered the diplo matic service in March, 1904, when he was named secretary of legation at Copenhagen. serving as charge there for several months. He was made third secretary at Berlin in 1906. and three years later went to Vienna. In Jane, 1911 he was made second sec rtary in Mexico City.

Children may be interested to learn the countries from which the Christ mas feast may have been gathered to gether. India provides the spices which will enrich your pie, the raisins for your pudding may have grown on the grape vines of distant Spain. Mexico probably sent you the chocolate which will flavor your cake, and the nuts that add so much to the fun of the feast may have come from South America. from Europe or from Asia. From the north of your own land will come your Christmas tree and from the south your Christmas gar lands of holly and of mistletoe. In deed, most of the countries of the world will have their part in your merry Christmas. The Christmas Tree. The spruce is the Christmas tree of the world, and no wonder it has been chosen for this purpose, for it is a tall, straight, handsome tree and holds its branches up finely. The branches all pointl upward, and the fresh, green needles at the tips look like tiny can dles. Instead of growing in bunche@ like those of the pine, its needles are ar ranged in a row along the stem. East of the Rocky mountains we have the black, white and red spruce. so called from the color of their leaves or bark; the Norway spruce and the balsam fir, a forest tree, with very sweet smelling needles. A small tree, really a shrub, called the blue spruce, is often used in gar deps. "Buffoonery." It was customary in the earlier times for mountebanks and clowns to swal low toads as part of their perform ances for the public entertainment. There were some who made a spe cialty of this accomplishment, and it was they who were given the name "buffoon," which is derived from the Latin word for toad-buifo. Thus the toad is responsible for our word "buf foonery." Lady and Gentleman. It is quite commonly held that the word gentleman is made from the two Ivords "gentle" and "man," but this is not the case. Originally the word was spelled "gentileman" and signified. literally, a Christian convert. Lady comes from the old Anglo-Sax .on and signifies "to serve a loaf." It was applied to the mistress of the house as the one who served the bread. Jennie at the Theater. When Jennie went to the theater the first time she grew very impatient dur ing the intermission so she said to her mother. "Please. mamma, tell the man to pull. the shade up; I like to look through the window." When Santa Claus Comes. A good time is coming. I wish it was here. It's the very best time in all the year.
