Crown Prince Becomes King; Revolu
tionary Movement Making Head
way In All Directions
Athens. —King Constantine, bowing
to the will of the army and navy, has
abdicated and Crown Prince George,
who married Princess Elisabeth, of
Rumania, becomes king of Greece.
“Until the people say they want me
no more, I shall hold my throne,” the
king had previously declared. He ac
cepts this swift revolution as tKs
voice of the people.
Oddly enough, it was the former
American battleship Idaho, now the
Greek Lemnos, that started the revolu
tion. In 1913, Greece bought the Idaho
and the Mississippi. The Idaho was
named Lemnos. The Mississippi was
named the Kilkos after a famous battle
against the Bulgarians.
The revolutionists announce that
they will proclaim their choice of a
ministry on their arrival in Athens.
The revolutionary movement, which
is said to be led by General Gonatns,
Is making headway in all directions,
but thus far without reports of blood
The Insurrection which, while not
altogether unlooked for, broke out in
formidable force with unexpected sud
denness, had Its inception among th©
vanquished troops brought from
Smyrna to the Island of Mytilene and
Chios, and among the soldiers nt Sa
lonikl. Strangely enough, however,
these two revolts seem to have had
different objects, the former aimed at
the overthrow of the government and
King Constantine, and the Intter at the
defense of Thrace against the Turks.

Consolidation as Trade Commission
Doubts Legality
New York.—Announcement was
made here that the proposed merger
of the Inland Steel company, the Mid
vale Steel and Ordnance company and

due, it was said, to the action of the
federal trade commission In holding
that such a merger would be Illegal.
A statement sotting forth the rea
sons for the decision was issued by
W. H. Corey, chairman of the board
of the Midvale Steel and Ordnance
company, John A. Topping, chairman
of the hoard of tho Republic Iron and
Steel company, and L. E. Block, chair
man of the Republic Iron and Steel
The decision to abandon the three
company consolidation, which was to
have been known as the North Ameri
can Steel company, was strengthened,
it was said, by the unwillingness of
bankers to finance the merger in the
face of the federal trade comission’s
Washington.—Secretary Denby has
ordered two destroyer divisions, com
prising 12 destroyers, to proceed “as
early as possible from Norfolk to Con
stantinople with extra supply of provi

high commissioner at Constantinople,
that they be sent “for the protection of
American interests.”
In addition, the supply ship Bridge
will proceed ns soon as possible to
‘The purpose of ©ending these ships
!s to protect American Interests,” it was
declared, and furnish supplies should
they be needed. The method of distri
bution and in general the use to be
made of the supplies so furnished will
be determined by Admiral Bristol."

The creation of a new national park
may result from a joint picnic held at
the summit of the Lincoln highway,
forty-two miles from Cheyenne and
ten miles from Laramie, by the Lara

this gathering the project of having
the summit of the Lincoln highway,
which is on the Fort D. A. Russell
maneuver reserve, designated a nr •
tional park, perhaps to be known ss
Kiwanis Park, was born. It probably
will be taken up with the Wyoming
delegation in Congress at once.

Little change from prospects a
month ago Is noted in September es
timates of Wyoming crop production.
Wheat and oats held their own, but
corn, barley, pctatoes and buy lost
slightly. Excessive heat prevailed
during August, but good showers
brought relief quite generally over the
northern bulf of the state. In the
southern counties, rainfall bus been
deficient since June and crops have
suffered. Irrigated crops are thriving
except in Platte and Albany counties
where short water supplies are re
ported. Grasshoppers have been a se
rious pest tills year.

Innovation Looked To to Turn Cau
tious Playing Into the Merriest
of Swatfests.
Would you believe the new ten-cent
golf ball could arrive without affect
ing American outdoor life? Rather
not! Did you fancy that with link
pills available at a dime apiece golf
ing would remain the same coarse,
crude, rather rough old pastime that
it once was? Well hardly!
Persons who have entertained any
such steadfast ideas are blocking the
course. Fore! Let these fast ones
play through.
In the first place, there need be no
more mental hazards. A mental haz
ard, they say, Is a form of moral
cowardice—fear of losing the ball.
Now, fear of losing the ball is logical
ly the result of those traits of fru
gality which one unconsciously ac
quires the moment he undertakes to
learn this ancient game of the canny
It Is, therefore, not considered
strange if a player, standing on the
brink of a rather wide lake or seeking
a foothold on the bushy bank of a
tortuops stream, suddenly begins to
quiver and to quake. He is battling
with his mental hazard —the fear of
losing his ball.
But with a ten-cent ball—why,
who’ll give a durn?
Another thing—there Isn’t going to
be nearly so much profanity on the
links with this ten-cent ball made of
scrap rubber. Innocent youngsters who
make an honest living caddying need
no longer be regarded with resound
ing oaths every time a ball Is lost.
‘•Mister, I’ve lost It,” the kid will
chirp simply.
“Very well, sonny,” will reply this
new-style golfer, maintaining perfect
composure. ‘Take this dime; run buy
me n new one.”
And besides all this, look what the
ball will do for the husband. Now
he’ll be able to finance the wife to a
game of golf every day during the
summer, more than likely, und she
can lose as many bolls as she needs
to without bringing the family to the
brink of bankruptcy.—Exchange.
Starting Early.
Johnnie, a Columbus youngster, had
only four candles on his last birthday
cake, but he is already well versed in
legal procedure. Being in need of
having one of his teeth extracted he
was taken to the office of a dentist.
When perched In the chair he decided
that he did not wish to part company
with his ailing tooth and could not be
persuaded to open his mouth. With
consummate skill the doctor distracted
his attention and made him gap with
wonder at a fabricated tale. In went
the forceps and out came the tooth
before Johnnie realized it. The boy did
not say a word until he started to
leave the office, when he turned on
the surprised doctor and said se

Writer Refuses to Give Up Youth’s
Illusions at the Bidding of
Scientific “Sharps.”
Must all our illusions be dispelled?
Reading Les Annales we learu from a
formidable scientific man who writes
in a cocksure manner that nowhere
near the French coast, nor near the
Channel islands, is there a devil-fish,
a pieuyre, to be found capable of
grappling with and destroying n man
by the exercise of his blood-pumping
suckers. And so we must no longer
be excited over the adventure of Vic
tor Hugo’s ‘‘GilliaL” No longer should
that sinister line, “Something seized
him by the heel,” which ends the
chapter describing Sieur Clubin’s
dive into the ocean, cause us a thrill
of curiosity.
And now another ingenious scien
tific gentlemen assures us that Noah’s
ark was really one of the groat pyra
mids of Egypt; that the animals en
tering the ark—marshaled two by two
—the etephant and the kangaroo—
were really the signs of the zodiac —
the ram, the scorpion and the rest .of
them —symbolical figures, as shown In
the old-fashioned medical almanacs.
We still prefer the Noah’s ark of
our childhood, with the little wooden
Shem, Ham and Japheth, with the lit
tle wooden animals that were so easi
ly broken, Philip Hale writes in the
Boston Herald. Are these arks still
for sale in toy shops? We shall con
tlnue to find pleasure in the old illus
trated family Bible, where the ark Is
shown securely resting on Ararat Did
not Dom Cal met give a minute de
scription of the ark, making this pro
foundly original remark: “We find.
Gen. 6:16, that the ark wasto have
*a door in the side thereof; this is
indispensably necessary, for the pur
pose of Ingress and egress.” Did he
not prove that the ark was without
a keel; that it was no other than a
large house “whose timbers instead of
going into the ground, whereby they
would have been held, were detached
from it, so that when It was required
to float, the waters might easily Tift
up the ark.’?”
And in like manner we believe In
the Kraken, that great bird, the roc,
the sea-serpent, and above all the
huge squid-—“a vast pulpy mass fur
longs in length and breadth, of a
glancing cream color, innumerable
long arms radiating from Its center,
and curling and twisting like a nest of
anacondas, as if blindly to dutch at
any hapless object within reach”; the
squid without perceptible face or
front, “an unearthly, formless, chance
like apparition of life”; the great live
squid, “which, they say, few whale
ships ever beheld, and returned to
their ports to tell of it”
Ease and Comfort in Java.
Living in Java is so inexpensive that
a European resident in moderate cir
cumstances may keep many servants;
while the Mohammedan residents,
whose religion allows them four wives,
are usually able to support the full
number. Os late, however, the H. C.
L., penetrating in a degree even to
Java, has forced them somewhat to
reduce their families, In Java If a
nobleman marries beneath him he does
not bother to go to the ceremony, but
very kindly sends his sword or his bat
to represent him.
