What did be do about it besides peel ing his wands? That did not seem worth tell ing. Bnt may it not be that he attributed to the wands what was really due to chance or to his own shrewd mating of the animals? Such false reasoning occurs continually, and the, patent medicine of the dark of the moon or the unlucky number gets credit for results that were entirely due to something else that did not seem worth noting. Saving the Rock Island Club. i There Is no question of the need that the Rock Island club, as a purely social organ ization, fills in the life of the city. Every town of 35,000 people requires some such cen ter, open to people in all lines of business something to bridge the social gaps that arise from sectarian, fraternal, etc., as well as from occupational associations. It helps to promote mutual understanding and to draw people to gether in the common interests of the com munity. There i3 nothing fundamenfally wrong with the Rock Island club. It has survived too many years to be considered an experiment and its survival has proved its fitness. Just now, like nearly all other organized institu tions, it is up against a period ot reconstruc tion, with higher costs of operation and in adequate means of meeting them. It can't make a 50-cent dollar go as far as a 100-cent dollar used to. Even so its financial condition Is not so serious. Its current obligations will be paid by July 1 and its other ones will not be due for a number of years. The property it occupies is worth at least twice what was paid for it, so it is amply secured. : All that is necessary is an enlarged rev enue, such as every other enterprise must have to live. If the people of Rock Island do not provide it they will be short-sighted, indeed. Sitting on Sims. The dont-care-a-hang spirit, so noticeable In private life lately, seems to hare spread to the executive branch of the federal government. At least President Wilson didn't seem to pay much attention to where the chips fell when he slashed into the naval controversy. In publishing the address he delivered to officers of the navy in the summer of 1917 the president literally followed the advice he then gave about leaving the word "prudent" out of the vocabulary. That address knocks Ad miral Sims cold and relieves Secretary Daniels absolutely of any blame that might otherwise have been attached to him as a result of re flections made by Sims, but it also definitely in vites opening of an international controversy w hich Sims himself did not have weight enough to start. There need be no fear on this side of the Atlantic that the American navy will suffer in an exchange of compliments with England, for Sims undoubtedly has told the worst he knew or imagined about it, and he seems to have had" access to all the derogatory information there was. There has been enougn international un pleasantness, however. Whati is needed now is a little salve to heal the old sores, rather than irritants to make new ones. . . ; M One Way Traffic Cincinnati is trying to meet its traffic prob lem by setting aside certain streets for one way traffic. A special traffic committee, after a study of conditions, has recommended that nine streets be so designated. This will do away with two miles of street car tracks, since the rule would pply also to street cars. Dou ble tracks on one-way streets will be torn up and replaced with single ones, giving that much more room. The plan has met with deter mined opposition by business interests on the streets involved, but it is considered necessary to do something to relieve congestion. The ex periment will be watched with interest in other cities. MERC DCS MANS ANCIENT ENEMY, ... ' OULX CARC WHO DISINTERS THE UNLOVED CUSS, beware! ACLD CLCTIE TO WULLIE.

That is entirely reasonable; it would be ab lurd for an engineer to tell exactly what birds were singing and what blossoms were breaking out when something happened in his engine. . One must tell the essential facts. But what facts are essential? That is the rub. And the worll has often been misled for centuries be cause some one picked out the wrong one. i An old bible story tells how Jacob agreed with his father-in-law to take the ringstreak ed, the speckled and the spotted of the herd for his wages as shepherd and gathered and then peeled bark off poplar wands to make white rings and set these wands before the stronger cattle when they bred, to produce a streaked or mottled offspring. Every child who reads the story gains the idea that wha'. breeding creatures see can mark their young. ; Biologists do not believe it. But recent studies show that when they are properly mat ed, "heterozygous" parents can transmit quali ties which they do not themselves display tendencies present but "masked" in the par ents may appear in the offspring. ; Jacob knew that unspotted creatures some times produced spotted offspring, or he would Equipped with wireless a fisheries cruiser will scout the eastern coast of Canada this summer looking for schools of food fish.

There are many, too many appen dicitis operations being done today. 1 say done, although a regular re porter always says performed when be refers to an operation. An ac tor or circus acrobat performs; a Burgeon operates or does an op eration. Perhaps way back in 'S3 they considered an appendicitis op eration a performance. . But as I say, there are far too many appendicitis operations dope today. 1 don't know just why so many are done, but I am sure there are at least 10 times too many such operations. Something ought to be done about it. I have a mere' sus picion that the Great American Pill is one factor. The popular notion is that, when you don't know what else to do or take it is quite all right to take a "liver" or "stom ach" pill, a laxative, a cathartic. It seems that Old Doctor Bunkem has thoroughly pounded into the heads of the great Brotherhood and Sisterhood of Almanac Students the fancy that a physic in some mysterious manner "purifies the I blood" or, at any rate, drives some mysterious poison out of the "sys tem." But my suspicion is that these drugs, "purely vegetable," as the charlatans love to say (although opium, morphine, strychnine,-, prus sic acid et cetera are purely vege table), serve to irritate and con gest the intestine and, according to my unproved theory, to invite such troubles as appendicitis. That is what I mean when I as sert that there are probably 10 times too many appendicitis opera tions. I do not mean that the sur geons operate 10 times too r-iidily, though candor compels me to ad mit that too many of our young surgical braves yearn to operate. What I am trying to get into type is the thought that we have much too much appendicitis here in this good old land. When appendicitis "threatens" and threaten is the word in this treacherous disease the safest procedure is immediate operation. And take it from one who has been there as the victim, this is the most comfortable way out, too. QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS. Ellen versus Dad. Is it bad for one's complexion to. use powder to take the shine off the noge and face? My father ob jects and cites your articles tell ing of the value of the natural oil of the skin. But I do not agree with him and I think a shiny or greasy looking nose is one of the worst things possible. ELLEN. Answer I hope you will always continue to think so, Ellen. If a girl prefers to look as though she had Just tripped over the cat head first into the flour barrel, her dad should worry. Ferhaps 1 lack the true appreciation of feminine grace and beauty, but honestly, I like to see a girl's nose shine some it looks sweet and unsophisticated. Let the bold birds powder as much as they like it becomes their gen eral type. Sorry I must agree more or less with dad. Constant powder ing rather tends to increase to an abnormal degree the very condition yon imagine the powder corrects. It seems to be the rule that the bet ter the hygiene the -less need the girl has for face dope. Threatened. My doctor tells me I am threat ened with appendicitis. I have a sore place near my right hip. . M. L. O. Answer When we doctors are not quite certain about the diagnos is we often make use of that phrase "threatened." We say "threatened with typhoid" or "threatened with tuberculosis" or whatever we sus pect may be the disease. It leaves a loophole for escape from our po sition in the event that our fears prove unfounded. Now your doctor is not sure whether you have o have not appendicitis, so he leaves you dangling until he can be con vinced. He is a good doctor, no doubt Go back and see if he can come to a definite conclusion now. eart-iraome i 'fly 1' V Jv 1- V.iML ex I MRT.

(Copyright, 1920, by the Wheeler Syndicate, Inc.) There had been hard feeling be tween the Goodwins and the Mars ' ions for years. It began wjjen old Bradbury Marston won his suit ; over the boundary line between the two farms. - John Goodwin never forgave the . injustice, as he considered it, and now that he was gone, Helen Good win still respected her father's Wishes regarding the family ot his 'enemy, although that family was reduced to the only son, James . Marston. i The neighbors often remarked .that it was a pity the two young people could not patch up the old quarrel and join their live., as well as the two fertile farms; it was too 'bad for each of them to live alone, and they would make such a, handsome couple. But if such a .suggestion was made to Helen, she was as indignant as if she were asked to commit a sacrilege. Jim Marston,' on the other hand, good-natured and kind-hearted, didn't care to be an enemy to any one, and would have preferred to be friends with Helen. He had ventured to stroke his fair enemy's cat one day, when it had strayed innocently to his back porch. But Helen immeditely called Tabby home, without so much as a glance In Jim's direction. She had also given poor kitty a vicious little slap as she shut her into the house. - "Miss Spitfire." thought Jim, "I POM make you like me if I could it a chance to talk with vou." There seemed little likelihood of morning this, however, till one something happened. Helen had lighted her blue flame oil stove. Hearing a sudden commotion in the street, she ran to the door and found that two auto mobiles had collided almost in front of the house. In her excite ment, she forgot that she had left the oil stove burning, as she wait ed to see if anyone were injured. When she returned to the house, a strong odor of smoke greeted her. Rushing to the kitchen, she found a great blaze higher than her head rising from the blue flame, fanned by a strong draft from an open window. Helen ran for water, then stood aghast, as she remembered the wa ter had been turned off on account of the repairing of the pipes. The paper back of the stove had now caught and the flame reached nearly to the ceiling. Helen was frantic. She loved her home. She had been born in the house and lived there all her life. She herself had paid off the mort gage on it with the money she had earned teaching school. How proud she had been when she paid the last dollar. She had planted the vine over the back porch and train ed the red rambler over the front door. She loved her home with the devotion of a born homemaker. She couldn't let it barn. She ran to the door and screamed "Fire! Fire!" Jim Marston, placidly mending his fishing tackle, jumped from the porch, and with a bound was across the lawn and into the kitch en. "There's no water!" gasped Helen. Jim had taken in the situation. "Can't put water on an oil stove," he said tersely. Catching np the coal hod. he dashed out to Helen's newly made flower bed. and scooped up the' fresh earth. Dashing back, he threw the damp loam onto the stove and down the chimneys. The blaze was quickly smothered. Then Jim tore off bis coat and beat at the rapidly spreading flame on the wall. This was1 more diffi cult. The smoke stifled him, and several times Helen thought be would fail as the persistent flame jumped back at him. But when Jim Marston under took to do a thing, he did it He was that kind of a man. He put out the fire and saved the house, al though his coat was a charred mass of tatters, and his hands bad ly blistered. Of course, Helen bound np the poor hands; then, to hide her con fusion, she started to clean up the sorry sight "I woludn't do that" Jim said. "I wouldn't touch a thing. Leave it just as it is until the insurance agent sees it' I am going to town, and I will bring him out Helen hadn't thought ot the in surance, but now was thankful to remember she had kept it paid up. Jim was as .good as his word. He brought out the agent, who fin ally, at Jim's suggestion, agreed to settle for $100. After the agent had gone, Jim insisted on helping clean np the mess, and, without waiting for per mission, went to w or, .talking and joking aa he swept and scrubbed. His good nature waa irresistible : besides, how could one treat as an room in my home and do all the l hurts me, for I haven't told him washings and ironings for her.

The child began to cry and I looked good advice? when I have no one to talk to only my husband, and he won't talk to me on the subject. I can't stand this many more times. If my husband would even say a few words when his mother treats me like this I could bear it all. win you please give me some ones home. Helen threw off her reserve and talked and laughed aiso. So, working together, they soon had 'done the best they could for me smoked and blackened room. ow, said Jim, "all you need is new paper and paint. I have some paint, which I can mix up about this shade, and I'll put it on for you tomorrow. I'm an artist with a brush. Then, 1 11 take you to town and get the paper, and as soon as the paint is dry, we'll put the paper on. You can paste, and I will hang." In the- merry days that followed, Helen began to realize how foolish she had been to hate" Jim Marston. One day she said, "Thanks to you, Jim, this fire will cost me only about four dollars. I shall have $96 of my insurance money left. What shall I do with so much money?" Jim stepped nearer, and looked directly into her eyes as he said: "Would It be enough to buy a wedding dress, Helen T' And Helen answered: "I think so." at her and laugned and tried to keep her from crying, and mother stepped back to me and said, "lou take the cake" and rolled up her lip and walked away. I was ironing her clothes one day and she came down saying. "What did you iron my clothes for?" I had always done it before and told her so. She began jerk ing the ironed things off the line and throwing them across her arm; l stood ana watcnea ner ana cried. She jawed because I have my big meals in the evening, and about washing so many dishes. She follows me in the basement and upstairs, nagging at he and trying to pick a fuss. She says, "I am going to leave; we can't get along." I tell her to do her part and I will do mine and there will be no trouble. When I wash she puts in a few clothes and does the rest in the bathtub and hangs them around the tub to dry, and once she soaked some things and stuck them under the mattress on her bed, and I hap pened to see them and took them out, and that made ber mad. If I don't eat at the table when we have company then she begins on me, saying "I wouldn't eat because she was there." She tells my father-in-law things about me to make him TROUBLE. Fortunately June is not far off. If you use great will-power you can manage to get along until then. Seal your lips tight when your mother-in-law is unreasonable. .If you refuse to talk she will get tired of her scolding. Do not let her see you cry; instead, drop your work and leave the house. It is difficult for most women to realize that housework can be put aside. Your nerves need more at tention than the washing, ironing and dusty rooms. It is quite unrea sonable for you to expect to do all the work alone. Therefore get the meals and do what you can com fortably and let the rest slide. Days when the situation seems too much for you, stay in bed. It would not be a lie to say you are ill, because conditions have cer tainly made you Bick mentally. Since no one considers you, you will have to look out for yourself. From now on remember to keep silent and do not even talk over your troubles with your husband. Silence will be far more effective. It would be well to have a talk with your husband after his par ents leave and make it clear to him that you will not go through a simi laar oitleal again, and that out of respect for you and your health he should not ask it ONE YEAE AGO J Koreans petitioned the peaee con ference for liberation from Japan.

With the winning of the war, Lin coln turned at once to bind up th5 wounds of the union. The south having surrendered to force, he wished to conquer it forever by magnanimity. He would not hold the state together with bayonets and erect a rebellious Ireland within the borders of the republic. No bitterness ranked in his big, patient heart. His fairness forbade him to hold any individuals person ally responsible for a great Civil war. Unfortunately, many Republican leaders, who had not been so much in the thick of the fight, were un able to calm the passions aroused in them by the long struggle. A clamor arose for wholesale hang ings and confiscations and for rul ing the southern states as con quered provinces. It was the same conflict that fol lows every war, the conflict be tween a peace of reconciliation and a peace of vengeance. The radicals of congress had no faith in Lin coln's idea of a reunion of hearts. They demanded the rebellious states of the south be held in sub jection indefinitely and that the ballot be given to the newly freed slaves, whom Lincoln preferred to"! admit to the suffrage gradually. On the second day after the sur render at Appomattox, in an ad dress from a White house window, the president spoke of a new an nouncement to the people of the south. But that was to be his last speech. At the cabinet meeting on the closing of his life he rejoiced that congresswa3 not in session to in terfere with peace-making and reconstruction and was confidently hoping to reestablish the union be fore it met again. As to Jefferson Davis and the confederate leaders, he declared with much feeling that no one need expect him to hang them. "Frighten them out of the country!" he cried in excited, high pitched tones. "Open the gates! Let down the bars! Scare them on! Enough lives have been sacrificed. We must extinguish our resent ments if we expect harmony and union. With those accents of a generous statesmanship ringing in their ears, the secretaries went away from the last cabinet meeting. Sec retary Stanton sent, later in the day, to ask permission to arrest Jacob Thompson, a confederate emissary in Canada, who had slipped into the United States for the purpose of escaping to Europe from Portland. "Well, I rather guess not," the president replied. "When you have an elephant by the hind leg and he wants to run away, better let him run." An unwonted ease and happiness seemed to rest upon Lincoln that tragic day. Although he had dreamed the night before that he was in a strange ship, moving to ward a dark and indefinite shore, he took it as a good omen. Had not the same dream come to him before the victories of Antietam Gettysburg and Vicksburg? i In the evening he sat in a box t! Ford's theatre, enjoying a comedy when John Wilkes Booth stole ujh on him. The handsome but ungift ed young actor, who was a prey to1 dark moods and whose had hostil ity to the union had upset a never well-balanced mind, peeped! through a hole in the door of th box and observed the position of his illustrious victim. Could he hav looked into Lincoln's face with, its simple benignity, his better na-. ture might have turned him backj from the threshold of his awful crime. , While the curtain was down be-, tween the acts, the president and Mrs. Lincoln fondly talked over) plans for the future when they; should be free from the heavy cares, of the White house. As theyi planned the travels they would ea-t joy he said "there is no place 1, should like so much to see as. 'Jerusalem." These were his last! words. The play began again and the assassin, noiselessly opening the door, fired his cowardly shou Lincoln rose from his chair under the impulse of the shock and then sank back into it, his head drooped and his eyes closed, not to open again this side of that mysterious shore toward which he had sailed iu his dream ship. The frenzied murderer pushed his way through the bewildered party in the box and leaped over its rail ing. But the folds of the flag that draped it tripped him and he fell upon the stage. Al'.hough the fall had broken his leg, he rose with the melodramatic cry of "Sic temper tyrannis." Making his escape from the stage, he rode away through the nirht. but only to be shot down two weeks afterward as he stood at bay1 in a lrgima Darn.

Can the beneficiary of war risk insurance who has been re ceiving monthly payments, obtain the remaining total in a lump sum? R. A. N. A. Only converted insurance is payable in a lump sum. The bene fits of term war risk insurance pol icies are payable only in 240 monthly installments. Therefore, it would be impossible for the beneficiary of such a policy, who is receiving the payments at this time, to receive the remainder in a lump sum. Q. Where Is phosphorus mined? L. D. N. A. Phosphorus is not mined. It is one of the non-metallic elements, does not occur free in nature, but is fc-und-rn the form of phosphates. The principal source of phosphorus is the substances of bones. It is also found in yolks of eggs, in blood and other animal fluids and in the substance of brains and nerves. Word Fenian? L. W. K. A. This word comes from a man's name, Finn McCool, an Irish hero, who was a leader of the Fiann (English Fenian) a kind of militia or standing army drawn from all quarters of Ireland. Q. How did Mount Vernon come into the possession of the Ladies' Mount Vernon association? G. I. T. A. A group of public spirited women determined to acquire Mount Vernon, with the purpose of restoring and preserving it. They banded together as the Ladies' Mount Vernon association and pur chased the property from John A. Washington in 1858. He had in herited it from his uncle, Bushrod Washington, to whom it was be queathed by George, Washington. Q. Must all immigrants have money to enter this country? F. L. C. A.

What is the origin of the passing Immigration officials. ALETIIEA. Alethea, though not in common usage, is a most important name. It comes from the Greek Alethia, which in turn was evolved from the Greek "a" and the word meaning "to hide" and thus may be trans lated as "truth" or "sincerity." The first appearance of the name is recorded in 1411 when Aletha, of Padua, lived. It was Dona Mfria Aletea, a Spanish princess, for whom Charles I of England Jour neyed to Spain while he was Prince of Wales. Alethea was the form which ap peared in the famous Seville fam ily and was given vogue through its prominence.
