Crystalized Vanity
II IS SAID that the diamond trust is the tightest, most uncompromising of
all the trusts, and that a little group of diamond mine owners are doing
everything possible to keep the prices of diamonds high and Bearish the
demand for them. However if diamonds were cheaper, something else would have
to be moved up to be the pinnacle of desire.
The meteriaKied dew drop would still be as beautiful as a materiaKied dew
drop, but it would not be the last word in vanity, the thing lusted for, cried for,
whined for, whimpered for. It would not be fought for, died for. Lives would
not be broken for it or sold for it. friendships would not be begun with it or
ended with it The world has to have some supreme gaud, something to envy, some
thing to flaunt, something to mark these who enjoy distinction, something to
blaze. So why not the diamond, which has done such service to vanity and pride?
What friends would the beautiful diamond have if.it were cheap? What of
its sparkle and fire, its light of golden days and silvery nights? What of the
frost and dew and pleasure and pride that it has rrystaKzed for the world? Mo
one wants the emerald or raby or pearl to have its place as chief of jewels, so
the diamond is best. The trnst that keeps its price up is doing the world no
harm. If the world ever does have false pride a$d boasting wealth, it is not the
diamond's fault. . '

VISCOUNT JAMES BRYCE knows this country better than inoot Americans
do. He is both an expert and an enthusiast on several -Hess, and has
a mind trained to search out and to know and enjoy. He is a geographer,
a historian, and a political economist, a philosopher and an idealist, and he has
grand capacities for friendliness. He discusses the American attitude towards
the European war in a recent article and finds this country honest and impartial;
but it is what he says about "graft" in this country that is so simply honest
and wise that H is recommended to all those people wne like to cry "graft" at
every public effort and every public success. Bryce says: "The charge is often
made that big pecuniary interests are influencing legislation or the administration
in the United States, yet nothing is so unpopular in the United States as what is
called big business,' and any administration yielding to its pressure would do so
at its peril"
Gray "Spectacles
BOY SCOUTS in Philadelphia have been called upon to help in one of the
biggest of the world's tasks, finding work for the unemployed. This
turning boy energy into world work and world help is grand economy if
1: does not go too far. Setting the boy in his blithesome careless days to wrestle
with the world's giants of wrong and unhappiness and ineffectualness, is an
unequal task. Boys ought to be accumulating happiness as a kind of energy that
will last them through all their older days when other tasks than such accumula
tion of happiness too often crowd it out To bring to them the realization of how
wrong the world can go, when their strength in the world's affairs is still puny
and impotent, is to shadow their lives and net help the world.
The boys ought to work, and boys ought gradually to take responsibility and
ought to know that the world contains wrong and misery, but they ought not to
strain and -hurt their child strength of hope and faith and ambition, wrestling
with the problem of the men who do not get along.
There is not a more discouraging, disheartening pair of gray spectacles in the
world than the contemplation of the men and women who for one reason or
another cannot get along in the world, and it is not good for a hopeful boy to be
made to see the world as the unsuccessful see it

The Corn
CORK CLUB boys are getting ready for action. It was an inspiration, this
putting boys on their mettle to raise better corn and mere corn. It makes
. fanning and farms 50 percent livelier. It uses up some of the boy's
superfluous energy, and gives him an idea of the science of tanning, wfckh widens
his horizon to a worm circle. It increases the quantity and quality of the food
supply, and it somewhat feeds and satisfies the boy's insatiable appetite for excite
ment and adventure.
The king bey corn raiser in one state is set in competition with the king bey
corn raiser in all the ether states, and with success the boy quickly finds himself
in a world movement. It is more power to the boy's elbow.
The saloon men are fighting the movies and have their reasons. In many
places where the movie has opened its painted arches, which are wider than any
saloon doer, and lit up its lamps which arc brighter than the saloon's, and turned
on its mechanical, piano, and put up a sign that a gripping play of love and life
is being offered for 10c, two out of three nearby saloons have had to close.
Naturally whisky thinks this a most unfair condition and is spending thousands
of dollars against anti-saloon plays and for legislation to restrict the movie. In
Connecticut the saloon men think a moving picture show ought to pay as much
and have as much difficulty iu getting a license as a saloon.

"UjAPPY JACK" To Hold
JL JL Onto Jot) of Marrying Couples
Mew York Has a Famous "Marrying Alderman' Who Fights fer His
Privilege (and Fees) and Denies That He Was Ever a Hack Driver.
By GOTHAM KNICKERBOCKER.
NEW YORK. Mirch S. The pro
posal, once made, whether in jest
or earnest, has never been de
termined, to chance the name of Ar
kansas, never drew from the late fire
eating Jefferson Davis, of that sover
eign state, a more bitter and denuncia
tory protest, than the suggestion that
the New Tortt marriage bureau be
moved from historic city hall to the
newer and more ornate municipal
building has evoked from alderman
John J. ("Happy Jack"! Riordan.
Somebody or something, most likely
it was a newspaper, made the assertion
that the dark and dismal basement of
the old city hail wag not a cheerful and
fitting place for the abode ot Hymen.
Since Father Knickerbocker. It pointed
out. has a brand new skyscraper for
his very own. with plenty of bright
and airy rooms, it would be more ap
propriate to have the "marriage mart"
in the new quarters.
Some of the aldermen agreed that
this was so. But not all of them. The
notable exception was "Happy Jack"
Riordan. or the 20th assembly district.
Flcht o He I.ltelj-.
It is a foregone conclusion that the
fight in the board of alderman over the
doing away of the marriage bureau In
the city ball will be one of the liveliest
ever held. .
At present the bureau i eonducted by
two men fleslgnated by the city clerk.
But to perform the ceremony they must
have an alderman, so 'Happy Jack" Is
called In. In Brooklyn and the other
borougs the aldermen find marrying
couple profitable, and the attempt to
take It away from them undoubtedly
will be bitterly resented.
Those in charge of the "marriage
bureau" arc not permitted to ask for
fees. The rule is that they must state
that .any money given for services or
for certificates of marriage must be
given voluntarily. However, the mar
riage certificates are so beaut if ully
prepared with gilt and plastered with
such huge, impressive seals that they
are sure to loosen the purse of any
happy bridegroom
No clergyman in the United States,
probably, has to his credit having
joined In wedlock half as many people
as "Happy Jack-" That Is one reason
he has so many friends.
Known Everywhere an Happy,
Not only in his own district, which
be lias represented for ten years, but
all over the greater city, Riordan Is
known as "Happy Jack." From morn
ing until night he can be round in the
chapel in the basement of the city hall,
read' to join all comers In holy matri
mony with the tie that binds.

The good queen rose to get her jewel

ran frantically to the telephone. (See
Semple Dooly's "Fifteenth Century Con

"Spagett S7S." he demanded. "Hello,

(See Edwin Smear's "Excited Royal

One of the reasons urged by those
who want to move the marriage bu
reau Is that the basement of the city
hall is dark and dismal.- But another
reason urged is the allegation that the
aldermen who hang around the city hall
for the purpose of performing mar
riages, do so for the purpose of making
their living that way in holding up the
bridegrooms for high fees and humili
ating them before their brides if they
fail to produce a dignified sum for the

Tke Battle Cruiser
BY GEORGE: FITCH.
Anther ot "At Good Old Stwasa."
EXT to the submarine, the most
disagreeable craft to have
around when peace isn't being
indulged in is the battle cruiser.
The United States, which proceeds
cautiously, adopting naval plans as
soon as other nations hare discarded
them, has not as yet discovered the
battle cruiser, but Genuiny has. She
discovered some of England's late in
I December, and also in January. The
result of the . discovery in each in
stance was tragic in tne extreme.
The battle cruiser" is a sort of wel
terweight battleship, with express train
attachments. It carries guns big
enough to shoot up anything afloat,
and enough armor to make It im
pervious to any shells smaller than
a rtail keg. It also contains a set of
engines which can drive it about Za
miles an hour.
This is the greatest talent or the
battle criuser. It is faster than the
old at le torpedo boat and it can
run away from a toroedo itself It
is faster than a limited train on a
'safety first" railroad. It is so fast
that it only has to fight hen it wants
