STUCK TO HIS CAR
Yankee Kept Long Vigil in Deep

When Auto Failed to Buck
Paris.—Richard Kelly of El Paso,
Tex., one of the American doughboys
recently recalled from duty In the
Baltic country, now is in a hospital
in Paris nursing frost bites and restor
ing lost tissue as the result of a lone
vigil with his car in a Baltic snow
drift. During his tour of duty in the
Baltic, Kelly was assigned to drive
for a British officer one of the big
yellow American cars, which, it is sup
posed, can go anywhere. One of the
last things his superiors told Kelly
was "stick to your car whatever hap
What happened, was that during
the drive In the rural districts near
Riga, Kelly's machine, officer and all,
became stalled in a snowdrift. No
horsepower or ingenuity was able to
budge it. The British officer with
his adjutant fought their way to the
nearest town for aid. leaving Kelly
alone to buck the snowdrift. For some
reason the officer failed to return.
Though Kelly might have surren
dered and sought shelter, he remem
bered his instructions and gamely
stuck. Night fell; so did more snow.
No one came along the road and no
twinkling light told of the nearness
of human beings. Kelly, hungry and
forlorn, curled himself up in the car
and slept. While awake he solaced
himself with cigarettes.
He spent a,second day in the same
drift, determined to stick. That day
a peasant came along in a sledge and
towed Kelly to a nearby village and
there he left the car, returning to his
base by train, later passing through
Berlin to Paris. Now he is spending
his off hours looking for that "blamed"
SAVES MUCH HARD WORK
It is a well knowh fact that water
will not run uphill and the owner of
this North Carolina home found that
toiling up a steep slope of several hun
dred feet with buckets of water sev
eral times a day was a hack breaking
job. So he turned an inventive mind
to work and stretched a cable from
the spring to a windlass built against
a tree near his home. A pulley ar
rangement permits the bucket to trav
el down the cable to the spring, .where
it fills Itself and then is drawn uphill
to the house by the windlass.
VIRGIN" WAS ONLY SHADOW
Priest Solved a Mystery Which
Caused Excitement Among
Metz.—Excitement among the peo
ple of Noveant, a small village near
here, over the supposed appearance
of the Virgin near a church yard,
has been calmed by an Investigation
conducted by religious authorities. It
was said the apparition appeared at
a certain time each day, seeming
to stand on the steps of a little villa.
Father Bentz posted himself one
evening at a point where others said .
they had seen the Virgin, and at once
solved the mystery. He found two
trees some distance away which, just
at sunset, cast a shadow presenting
a clear outline of a statue of the Ma
donna, the resemblance being striking.
Bishop Ruch of Metz, commenting
on the case, said when it was ex
plained to him :
"We must not expect too many mir
acles. We have just witnessed one
of the greatest miracles of all times
—the return of Lorraine to France
—and we can afford to wait a little
while for another."
Strike Over Price of Blood.
New York.—Men who sell their
blond for transfusion in operations
struck for more money at the Flower
hospital. They demanded $55 for a
pint of blood. $30 more than they re
ceived two weeks ago, since which
time the price has Increased to $40.
Student nurses responded ns strike
breakers. Ten .minutes after the
strike started one nurse was on the
operating table as a surgeon performed
a transfusion operation and the hos
pital received a pint of blood free.
Two hours later the nurse was attend
ing a clinic. The strike was broken.
Professional blood donors were on the
Job next day at the old wage.
NOAH'S ARK AS
MODEL FOR BOAT
Lake Erie Fisherman Had Faith
Enough in Idea to Build
PROVED SAFE AS A HOUSE
Now the United Fishing Company Has
Built One and Will Build Five
Sandusky, O.—Ed. Lampe, a fisher
man at Vermilion, a Lake Erie port
town twenty-two miles east of this
city, was reading a story about Noah's
ark to his children one night several
months ago, when it occurred to him
that were the craft of Noah's time res
urrected and modernized a little It
might have a tendency to lessen the
toll that storms take annually In the
Great Lakes section.
Lampe is a gillnetfer of many years'
experience, and in the picture of
Noah's ark that embellished the story
he was reading, he recognized wonder
ful possibilities. Tlie storms of the
Great Lakes section rage furiously in
spring, following the opening of the
navigation season, and again In fall,
just before the season closes. Many
men lose their lives and much valu
able property is destroyed.
The gillnetters, as those fishermen
who fish with gill nets are known,
are oftener the victims than are the
members of any other body of men
engaged in fishing; their work Is more
hazardous. When disaster comes it Is
usually the gillnetters' boat, or "tug,"
that is destroyed.
A Real Success.
Lampe designed a boat on the plan
of Noah's ark. With the aid of sev
eral fishermen friends he brought his
design to materialization. He tried the
craft ont and it met every expectation.
It ploughed the moat vicious billows,
going out and returning when other
hoats had to he kept In port.
Larape's craft attracted the atten
tion of (lie commercial fishing inler
ests of the Lake Erie section and In
vestigators were sent to Vermilion.
If It were true that a Vermilion fish
erman bad invented a boat patterned
after Noah's ark that would lessen
the risk of spring and Pall season fish
ing they wanted to give (he fishermen
the benefit of the discovery, they said.
The Vermilion gilinetter wonld not
listen to a proposition to sell his idea,
nor would he talk of royalty.
"If you (tan save some poor devil's
life by using my style of boat, go
ahead and use It," lie said.

for the reason that she Is believed to

are so constructed that they can be

bears the weight required to right her

"I would as lief be sitting in the
cabin of Victory as in my office or my
home, no matter how severe the
storm," said Charles F. Mlschler, pres
ident of the United Fisheries company,
discussing the new gillnetting craft.
Fishermen say that boats of this
kind will, in the near future, replace
the old-time gillnetting tugs now In
use, and that a big saving In life and
property will result.
