l! i 5 v. PLAGES RELIGION BEFORE THE LAW Sock Island Man Will Not Ap. pear Against Thief Must Be in Church Is Plea. ' Rather than disobey the precept of the Jewish religion, Ed Goldburg of this city will make no effort to appear against a man who Is now in Jail charged with stealing from him ap proximately 60 bushels of potatoes. The trial has been set for tomorrow morning, but Goldburg refuses to be present, owing to the fact that tomor row Is the Day of Atonement. The Jews throughout the world will fast for 24 hours, and in addition will not drink even so much as a drop of water. "I muht be in church tomorrow morning. Judge." said Goldturg, "and I cannot be here." As a result, it is possible that the case may be dis missed. About 10 days ago, thieves drove up to a car in the Burlington yards and stole 19 sacks of potatoes, each sack containing two and a half bushels. Thee were loaded into a wagon. George Gordon, an old offender, was arrested for the crime, and his case was continued until this morning. When the case was called, it was learned that it would be impossible to go to trial as several witnesses were absent Magistrate Smith then granted a continuance until tomorrow. Goldburg protested, but the Judge contended that the prisoner had been in Jail 10 days without trial and was entitled to some rights. 1 NEW LIBRARY BOOKS .

AMERICAN VILLAGES. Here Is a Writer Wh. Claims Thy Are Positively Hideous. No dlstlnctivey American style baa arisen, and the average American borne remain as ugly and as undistinguish ed as a Zulu kraal. In its essence it is simply a square box. And from that archetype It proceeds upward, not through degrees of beauty, but through dfgrees of hideousness. The more It Is plastered with ornament the more vulgar and forbidding it becomes. The more it is adorned with color the more tbnt color becomes a madness, a de bnuch. a public indecency. Take a train ride through any Amer ican state and you will be sickened by the chaotic ugliness of the flitting villages bouses sprawling and shape less, a huge advertising sign upon every flat wall, an intolerable effect of carelessness, ignorance, squalor, . bad taste and downright viciousness. Hut make the same sort of journey through France or Germany say from Bremen to Munich or from Paris to Lyons or through Austria or Italy or Swltterland. and you will be charmed by the beautiful harmony visible on all sides, the subordination of details to general effects, the instinctive. rt- CURED TERRIBLE HUMOR ON FACE Coold Not Co On Street Willi oat VcO.

I spent over $100 and got no benefit. The face and aaee were very red and the eruptioe, had the appearance of small boils, which itched me terribly. I cannot tell you how terrible my face looked all I can say ia, it was dreedfal. and I suffered beyond description, " I ha sot gone oa the street any time since 1908 without a veil, until now. Just four months ago a friend persuaded me to giv Eeeinol s trial.

In "Holland of the Dutch" Demet rius Boulger tells the story of the fa mous Van Klaes of Rotterdam, who was known as "Father Great Pipe." Van Klaes smoked about half a pound of tobacco a day and to save himself trouble used an enormous pipe, bene his nickname. ITe built a man sion In Rotterdam, with a fortune amassed !c the Indies, and turned it into a museum for pipes and antique instruments used by priieltlve man for burning hemp or weeds long before the discovery of tobacco. No man who visited his curios went away without a gift of choice cigars. He lived to be ninety-eight and made, while smok ing, an eccentric will, which began by inviting all smokers In the country to bis funeral. Each person who attended was to receive ten poupds of tobacco and two pipes bearing the' name of the donor, his arms and the date of bis death, but be Imposed the condition that they should smoke without Interruption dur ing the funeral, ceremony. Finally his coffin was to be lined with the wood of his old cigar boxes, and beside him were to be placed his favorite pipe, a supply of tobacco and a box of matches, for. as the will senten tlously sets forth, no one knows what mar happen. Effect of Dream. "The happiest dream I can recall," said a successful business man. "was one I bad ten yean ago. In it I was with my good mother again, seated in the old borne church. She placed ber band on my bead and whispered. "Son. I am proud of you." Thst little state ment has kopt me ont of wrongdoing more than all the sermons I have ever heard and.

O wad some power the glf ie gie us. To see ourselves as others-see .us. It wad frae monie a blunder free us. And foolish notion. " . Bums. Thomas A. Edison appears In the role of the Giftie and the Rock Island rai'road. through its "Safety Firs" movement, is making practical appli cation 'of the mirror. It was Eiison who first caKed attention to the edu-! cation al value of the "movies." It re mained for a big railroad corporation to follow Ws sugges'Jon and test their value in a life saving campaign. L. F.. Shedd of Chicago,- general safety supervisor for the company, is giving moving picture shows to edu cate trainmen by showing them their own shortcomings. The men who posed for the- pictures did dangerous stunts from the every "day experience of traiMsen. Seated before t!ie movies, other trainmen loudly crltisis ed the moving pic ure a-'ors, indicat ing that. In thecrv at least, there waa no question about the right way to do a thing, although doing it the wrong way has been more or lesg common. An hour's lecture every day would net, in a year, accomplish as much for the protection of life and limb as the pictures do with one showing. In Bobby Bums' day there- were no "movies' to mirror our "blunders" and "foolish notions," but Edison has made that possible and the force of this has never been so clearly emphasized as in the remarks of trainmen after view ing the pictures. "If that's the way it looks to others we'll s'ick to the right way here after is the general comment. Tae "Safe-y First" campaign Is based on the assntrptjon that the safe way pays in the long run, even if It takes more time. , ' ; The public attends these moving pk-turj exhibitions because the nntv He's benefit Is the first consideration. In order to protect the traveler, every trainman must . be educated in tha value of safety to himself and wheu he properly takes care of his own wel fare he will, consaiouily or uncon sciously, take better care of the pas senger.. ' - - v Lob Angeles Edwin Ertlupe, : ranch employe, -was found uncon scious' beside the carcass of a large mountain lion north of Santa Monica, He bad killed the animal with rock. His hands and face were badly lac erated and. the muscles were ripped from bis arms, by the beast, but be , probably will recover. i : All the news all the time The Arg-o,' i
