PAOKTHttHB. WHEN SCIENCE RIVALS THE AURORA BOREALIS American explorers aro fast in troducing electric lights in the Arc tic regions and ono would not be surprised to hear shortly of the Es quimaux enjoying this modern lux ury in their huts, according to the prediction mode by J. Alien Wikoff, manager of the local Exide service station. "A few weeks ago," said Mr. Wi koff. "I read of the natives in some . isolated section of Alaska. Kodlak Island. I believe, boing introduced to oloclric lights and the ovenl was commented on as a step lowurd pro- cress. "Then the other day I received word that MaoMillan, the explorer, hud takou a completo lighting sys tem with him on his latest trip to Ule Polar regions. Ho also equipped his expedition with a wiroloss set and "wfll send back radio reports as he makes his way north. Current for both is furnished by Exlde bat lories. Air. MaoMillan, who sailed from Boston, was loader of the famous Crocked Land expedition seven yenrs ago. It was roally on this occasion (l)nt oloclric lights' also furnished by Exides, woro introduced in the Arotlc regions, probably, for the first time in history. Tills was made possible princi pally through the development of Iho storage battery. Such a voyage uooossarily is rough and full of hardships and I he equipment must bo strong enough to withstand a lot of rough handling. After 5,000 miles of iraveling in which the party was ship-wrecked and almost pcrisliett" in blizzards, I hey wore still able to give the Es quimaux the surprise' of Ihoir lives elpctric lights. Deniosl Relinda: Well! Here I am at last. I know thai yuu have been impatient at my delay in not writing you as promptly as 1 prnmsed, "but really I did not want to write n make-believe loiter, and therefore wailed until I had a elianee In look over Ihis substantial little cily. A more thriving com munity il would bo hard to find. I went down (own last Thursday, and slopped inlo the corner hard ware sloro. If you can imagine .Iones & Drowns' only three or four limes a slarge. you will pet a faint idea as to the size of II. W. Isaacs Hardware no's, place, i can almost hear you say. "My Lands! I wonder whntthey can handle besides hard ware. That I will (ry and tell you, that is we will glance over it. The first thai struck my attention woro those hoaulifu! ".Hall Teapots," they were so handsome I shall get one of them In use as a chocolate iwl as well as for tea. Then their line of aluminum, htoy handle Iho American Everwaro and the Wag ner cast aluminum.

AT THE FUNERAL OF "AMERICA'S UNKNOWN DEAD" Rotary is to havo a prominent part in the ceremonies noidonl to iho burial of the "Unknown American Soldier" Armistice Day. Past. International Prosidcnt John Poolo. nrosident of tho Fedoral Na tional Hank, of Washington, D. C, and Ed. L. Stock, vice president of I he Hart & Grouse Co., Washington, 1). C and governor of tho fifth Ro tary district havo been formally named to represent International Rotary on this occasion. Hy special invitation of tho war department, issued, according to Adjutona Gen eral Harris, as -a recognition of JHo- tary's distinguished sorvice during tho world War, mo representa tives of the organization will bo giv en placos of honor in the Amphi theatre at Arlington oemetory, dur ing tho coromoniep. They will also have a plaoo in tíío funoral proces sion if thoy so desiro. Inasmuch as tho number of seats in Iho Amphithoalro whero tho cere- monyis to take place is vory limit ed, il will not bo possiDlo to accom modate anywhere near the crowd that will attend "wnon tho whole United Slates and the many repre sentativos of foreign govornmunU will pay tributo to America's un known doad of the World War. Ia alloling scats in the Amphitheatre it's toasted, of course. To seal in the flavor IWtTTi EMS monoy could attain Iho end. When tho American people coiu templalc wlat might be dono with the amount of' monoy wo havo juál spent on, war, thoy will slop at no thing short of yielding their nation al honor and safety in the effort to secure the assurance of por manonl peace. The League of Nations was pro posed as an assurance of peace, but, believing thai il was a supremo sac rifico of national Independence on the one hand, and a source of war on the otter, the voters of America re jected il by an overwhelming vote at tho polls. They turned over to tho opponents of the League of Na tions the power to speak for this nation n on effort to promoto world peace and world disarmament, and with that power goes a mcasuro of responsibility. Tho United Stales and its spokosmon cannot alone se cure world peace or limitation of armament Neither can this nation bo held responsible for failure of the present conference, unless the course pursued by our representa tives shall be such as to prevent agreement without just cause. Counting the cost of war, in suf fering and loss of life as well as in I money, ami reeling the burilen or I taxation incident to military pre paredness, the American people are willing that their representativos shall go to the utmost oxtent con sistenl with honor and safely m the effort to mako he conference a com plete success. and offering a place in the funoral procession to Rotary, tho War De partment staled thai it did so, not only as a way of expressing its op preciation of tho splendid service rendered by all Rotary Clubs durin the World War, but of notary's present, activities in promoting in ternational friendship. At the time of the International Rotary Convention in Edinburgh, Scotland, last summer the Rotary delegates from all over the world paid tribute to the unknown soldiers of Franco and Britain. Acting offi cially these delegates, while n Paris, placed a permanent bronze wreath on the tomb of Iho Poilu inconnu in the Place d'Etoile. The organiza tion is ul present arranging to place on November llth a similar wreath on tho gravo of the unknown Urit ísh soldier in Westminster. Official word lias been received from tho war department granting notary's request lo placo a similar wreath on the Arlington grave of American unknown soldier. This coroniony will probably lake, place in March when about 2,000 Rotar ians will bo in Washington attend ing the convention of clubs of the Fifth Rotary District CORPORATIONS PLAN TO WIDEN FIELD OF ACTIVITY promo court has reversed tho Judg ment of Uie district court in Quay coqnty in tho caso of R.

President Harding (oday nominated Matoo Lujan of Santa Fe, N. M., to be the receiver of' public moneys at Clayton. WHAT THIRTY BILLIONS WILL DO Washington, Nov. 8. If limitation of armaments can check war or reduce the danger of war, or reduce the expense of military prepared ness, it will be woll worth while, even if it does not accomplish oil that might bo hoped- for il. Aside from their own national honor and safety, there is scarcely anything tho people of this nation wanl moro than thoy want relief from tax bur dens and tho destructiveness of war. Counting tho cost in money only, the European war cost the United Stales moro than .$30,000,000,000a hundred times as much as the cosl of building the Panama canal, con sidered in its timo one of tho great est undertakings tho United States might assump. What would not Ihirly billion dol lars do? Thirty billion dollars would buy all the railroads of tho United States free from debt and leave ton billion dollars for botlerments. Thirty billion dollars would build 000,000 miles of the best highway, at a cost of $50.000 per milo highway enough to lay fifty national high ways across tho country east and wost. and fifty similar highways across the country north and south. Thirty billion dollars would build and equip a college in each of ihu states and in Hawaii and tho Phil ippines al a cost of $200,000,000 each and lcavo Iwenly billions with which to erect and equip a hundred thou sand ligh schools al $200,000 eaoh.
