UNITY IN FILIPINO TRIBES
Rcnt "Maulud" Held in Department
of Mindanao and Sulu Wa Evi.
dence of Existing Harmony.
Commenting on the prevalent belief
that the IslandH need u speed uatlonnl
izatlon of the different swtlons und a
rooting out of sectional and trlhal feel
ing, the Philippine Review say edi
torially :
"While as a matter of fact we have
to acknowledge that sectional feeling
seemingly eslsts In the Islands, Its ex
istence Is not of basic character. For
the elements of unity are In actual ex
istence, and sectional feeling will only
eemlngly last while no actual Inter
course between the sectional groups
of the Islands takes place. It Is. there
fore, but n matter of common educa
tion or educational Intercourse, not
real lack of spirit of nationality: and
with the present government efforts t
provide the people with pood popular
education, this so-called lack of na
tional spirit will shortly he overcome."
Perhaps no better evidence of the
harmony existing among different
tribes and factions could be offered
the skeptic than the recent "Muulud"
held In the department of Mindanao
aud Sulu. The 'Maulud corresponds
to the Christian Christmas, being the
celebration of the birth of Mohammed.
It consists in ceremonies lasting two
days during which there Is much feast
ing and chanting by "imams" (priests)
and lady singers.
The last Maulud was celebrated at
the residence of the governor of Sulu.
All the chief! and every other Mo
hammeduu of prominence, KM) Imams,
MO lady singers, 3.K)0 Mohammedans,
the government otllelnls, and all the
civilians of any distinction attended
the monster feast. Mohammedans ami
Christians, Americans and Filipinos,
dressed in beautiful Moro costumes,
forgot their religious, social and po
litical differences, and threw 'them
selves heart and soul into the cele
bration of this greatest of Mohamme
dan ilestas. No one could have wit
nessed the scene without being con
vinced of the oneness of the Muhatn
median and Christian Filipinos, and
the hearty good feeling between Amer
icans and Filipinos.
POETS GET INTO FRONT RANK
Some Soldiers Develop as Writers of
Verse While Knights of Quill Also
Become Warriors.
The literature of the war proves that
some soldiers are made Into poets, and
we know also, of course, that some
poets have been made Into soldiers.
Mobilization and conscription take lit
tle account of persons and no account
at all of professions. There Is one
great poet of history, however, and one
great painter, too, who were denied
entrance Into the ranks of the army
Poe and Whistler.
The story of why Whistler did not
become a soldier Is well known, but It
may bear repetition. Like Poe, he was
a cnaei ni t esi romc, ami hkc roe,
he was discharged from that Institu
tion long before the completion of the
course. Whistler was found deficient
I. ,,.,nn Un ....... ....I., ..I

why he did not graduate and become
a soldier he answered: "If p'iieoti
were a gas, I would bo a soldier."

Rase of American Flotilla In British
Waters. There is a tlerman submarine j
co umander who Is known throughout
the American flotilla as "Kelly." His
real name Is something itilte differ
ent. but the American sailors promptly
dubbed him "Kelly of the F.inerald
Isle," and the name will stick In the
songs and stories of the navy ns Ion?
us the great war Is talked about.
"Kelly" earned his name by his dis
play on various occasions of a rich
vein of quite un-Ocriuun humor, lie
lias become the hero of uuinlieiiess sto
ries told lu forecastle and on quarter

and prolmhly most of them have grown
In the telling.
"Kelly" Pranks Tantalizing.
j "Kelly" comiiiaiids a mine-laying U-
boat which pays frequent visits to tht
district patrolled by the American dt
I stroyers. When he has finished his
appointed task of distributing his
i mines where they will do the most
: harm be generally devotes a few mln
j utes to u prank of some kind. Some
times he contents himself with leaving
n note flying from a buoj scribbled in
schoolboy English and addressed to his
American enemy, (in other occasions
be picks out a deserted bit of coast
j line at night and goes ashore with a
squad of his men for :t saunter on the
beach, leaving behind a placard or a
bit of German bunting as a reminder
! of bis presence.
j His most audacious exploit, how
; ever If the legends of the forecastle
; tire to be believed was a trip which
j he made several months ago to Iiulilln,
where he stayed two days ut ft leading
i holel, afterward joining his U-boat
i somewhere up the west coast. He is
said to have Informed the British of
i his exploit by leaving his receipted bill
j attached to one of their buoys,
j Still another of "Kelly's" more re
I cent stunts was to plant the German
flag on an eminence on the coast line.
! It was the first time that the British
i and Americans knew just where lie
j and his men had set foot and they
j shared the excitement of the village
j folk, who awoke one morning to lind
u new kind of Hag flying from tbelr na

j Fishermen Burn German Flag.
But when they made sure Hint it was

i for it so happened, so the story goes,
that the fisherman along this partic
ular strip of coast had suffered much
j from submarine raid-;. U-boats hud
shelled their boats. Germans bad sto
len their fish their only means of live
lihood and left thnn empty handed
, utter u week's hard catch of mackerel.
These poor fisher folk were In no mood
I for this latest display of German hu

promptly burned the Hag and set a

One to Get Out of the Muddy
Trenches.
"I won't go back to the trenches,"
said a Canudiun on leave the other
day, according to a Paris correspond
ent. "I've had enough. Sevunteen
mouths without leave. I've overstayed
my leave three days now, und I won't
go back until they catch me. I'd rather
be In Jail than at the front."
The other men at his table listened I
In silence.
' "I won't go back, I tell you." he re
peated. "This war is getting worse
and worse. There never wus such
fighting as we've Just gone through.
Hon't let anybody tell you the Ib.che
is quitting. He's fighting harder than
lie ever did."
The others looked at each other si
lently. One of them nodded in affir
mative. J "It's Just murder. I tell you," the Ca
j nadian burst out again, hitting the
j table with his fist. "Murder! A man
hasn't got u Chinaman's chance out
there."
The next day the same man ap
peared. "I'm going 'home,'" said he. These
men refer to the trenches as "lioiue."
"Only. If this war lusts forty years
I'll never usk for another lenve. I
can't stand it. It takes the heart out
of you to get out of that muddy hell I
for a time and see decent people."

The head, throat and chest are the usual points of attack for the
lodgment of colds that end in severe disablements unless early attention is
given to them and their cause removed. I succeed in removing your colds
by dealing direct with their cause. I do not profess to "cure" you of a cold,
or any other bodily ailment, for that matter. All cures lie with nature and
she will make them quickly and satisfactorily with what is at her dis
posal In the laboratories in the human body, If the nerves over and through
which she works are free for the transmission of her power.
My experience has taught me that the tonsils ami the human appendix
need not be removed. Inflammation In these organs results from the pinch
ing of the nerves that connect them. My spinal adjustment will remove
this causative condition and victims of tonsilltls and appendicitis will find
that I can remove the '"It is without removing the organs.
Quinsy, bronchitis and troubles with the pharnyx and larynx, are equal
ly amenable to adjustment. Not; every case of goiter coming to me meets
with n full recovery, but In most cases there is an almost immediate Im
provement, and In such as ure of comparatively short standing ami small
size, the results are truly remarkable.
My work proves Itseir. People taking my spinal adjustment soon have
the benelits to witness its worth. That is a proof or merit which is far
more valuable than mere words in Its behalf.
