Mr. and Mrs. Louis Houck, who have returned from an extended visit to San Antonio, Tex., where they visi ted their daughter and son-in-law, Maj. and Mrs. Patrick Frissell, an nounced that Mrs. Fnssell suffered a serious injury several weeks, ago when a razor dropped from a shelf and slashed her left wrist. The razor had been placed on a shelf by Ma.i. Frissell, who had just finished shaving. Under the razor was a towel, and as she attempted to remove the towel, Mrs. Frissell jerk ed the razor down upon her. The loaders in her wrist were severed.

U. S. HAS BUILT BUT TWOSHIPSJSCHARGE WASHINGTON, March 27. Before galleries filled to overflowing, debate over the conduct of the war was re newed with great vigor in the senate this afternoon. Senator Jones of Washington assailed the War Depart ment for failing to give the people in Tcrxation about the participation of " TDerican trops in the resistance toj the German drive. j ny is it we have to get our news fr.u.i fierlin' demanded Senator, Jones. "Why is it we have to wait forty-eight hours after llerlin tells us American troops were engaged to l:ain the facts from our own govern ment?" He also criticised the statement of Chairman Hurley of the Shipping Poard, last night reporting favor able progress on the shipping pro gram. Sharp retorts were made by administration senators led by Sena tor Myers of Montana and Senator Shafroth of Colorado. Sneator Myers urged Senator Jones not to discour age the American people. "I'm' not discouraging them I'm 'ust trying to tell them some facts," declared Senator Jones. Excerpts from Chairman Hurley's statement were rer.d and picked to nieces by Senator Jones and Senator Mc Cumber of North Dakota. "He says the shipping program i3 S per cent completed," said Senator McCumbe.r "The fact remains that we have built just two ships.

RGANiZE TOflBHT U Baboons Make War Very Much as Do Human Beings. Ample Proof That Intelligent Beasts Recognize the Value of Co-operationAlso Capable of Self-Sac-riflce in Aiding the Young. If we are to credit the testimony on the subject offered by naturalists, man Is not the only animal who carries on his warfare by means of organized bands, and calls In the forces of na ture to assist him. There have been witnessed In Africa fights that were conducted In as orderly a manner as if the warriors had been really men. Instead of only somewhat like them In form, I. e., baboons. One naturalist was stoned out of a pass In a very few minutes by these creatures, who sprang upon ledges and Ktones, looked down for a few mo ments on the valley, growling, snarl ing and screaming, and then heean to roll down stones with so much vigor nod adroitness that the intruders took to flight. The baboons evidently knew the value of co-operation, for the nat uralist saw two of them combine their efforts in order to set a particularly heavy stone rolling. One monkey, bent on making the roost of his mis sile, was seen to carry a stone up a tree, that he might hurl It with great er force. On'e. while some baboons were crossing a valley, they were attacked by dogs, and, as is usual during a march, the females and young were In the center, the males heading the col umn and bringing no in the rear. As the dogs rushed upon them tho males turned and faced their enemies, growl- ink', heating the ground with their hands, and opening their mouths wide, so as to show thvir glittering teeth. They 'ooked so fiVrce and uialiguant that the dogs Arab greyhounds, ac customed to fight successfully with hy enas and other boasts of prey shrank back. By the time they had hi-en en couraged to renew the attack, the whole herd had made their way. cover ed by the rear guard, to the rocks, one 3ix-nionths-old monkey excepted. This little monkey sat on a rock sur rounded by the dogs; but he was not Ions left in his perilous position. An old baboon stepped from a cliff near by. advanced toward the dogs, keep ing them In check by threatening ges tures and sounds, picked up the baby monkey, and carried It to a place of safety on the cliff, while the whole crowd of baboons watched the act of heroism and shouted their battle cr?- pesnuU Up a Reg rntn rceeut!y the 1Panut fiS re g.aed us n casual one might almost fray sportive article of provemh r.

The "peanut gallery," though but a mem ory to the present generation, Is a not forgoten term for the cheap seats at tae top of a theater. But now It Is different. The long despised peanut is coming into its own It has the emphatic indorsement of Mi. Hoover. Our people are advised to eat peanuts. Yon see. the peanut is not a nut at all, properly speakiDg. It is a kind of pea ; and, like other legumes. It is rich in tissue-making stuff. A paper bag of peanuts (even nowadays, when somewhat reduced In sise) affords fairly square meal.

Thought He Was "Setting 'Em Up." A young Topeka army officer, now in France, was seized while in Paris with a desire to send his sister a present, and finally decided on a waist, says the Kansns City Star. He entered a fashionable shop and selected a waist hut not knowing the size his sister re quired, singled out a pretty Parisian clerk who looked about bis sister's size, and asked her to try the waist on. When she returned the fit was pro nounced perfect, and the young officer nodded approvingly and paid the cash ier. As he turned back to claim the article, the clerk flew Into bis arms and kissed him again and again, exclaim Ing, "Thank you, thank you." All the other clerks in the store then caught the idea that the handsome young American was "setting them up" gen erally to girls who wanted new waists, and begged him to buy for them also. The officer finally excused a retreat In some manner or other, but the sister in Topeka has not yet received any present. Her Horrible Suspicion.
