ENGAGEMENT ANNOUNCED *
News comes by the way of London *
that Germany's former Kaiser is s
about to marry the widow of a Ger- '
man aristocrat. She recently visited 5
the ex-Emperor at his place of exile '
in Holland. He stopped cutting down
trees long enough to get engaged to 1
the charming lady who is said to be
34 years old. She is the Princess
Hermine the widow of Prince Jean '
of Schenaich of Caralath, wherever
that may be.
THE DAY OF SMALL THINGS
And now the humble com cob if
treated in a certain method with
chemicals will produce cellulose, a
useful and important article of commerce.
Science can produce of the
corn cob an element hard as ivory
that can be used in the manufacture
of piano keys, billiard balls, umbrella
handles, knife handles and other simi
lar objects. Zachariah, of old, said,
"Who hath despised the day of small
CATHOLIC PRIESTS MARRYING
That the world do move is shown in
that fact that French Catholic priests
are marrying just like other people.
The Pope at Rome has not up to this
writing made any protest against this
new movement of the "holy church"
THE ASSASSINATION OF
In a recent issue of this paper editorial
mention was made of the latest
tragedy in Ireland, the assassination
of Michael Collins. A statement of
the Irish Provisional government has
been published which speaks eloquently
of the great loss sustained
by the Irish Republic. The statement
"The greatest and bravest of our
countrymen has been snatched from
us at a moment when victory smiled
through the clouds upon the rising
up of the nation to which he dedicated
all the powers of his magnificent
manhood. The personality of Michael
Collins was vivid and impelling. He
cannot die. He will live in the rule
of the people."
Killed by his own people while
serving them, trying to bring order
out of chaos, the fate of Michael Col.
lins is made all the sadder by the fact
that he was soon to marry a young
patriotic Irish lass, who like the
sweetheart of Robert Emmet, that
other Irish martyr, was left to mourn
the loss of her lover.
HOW ABOUT IT, ALBERT?
When the twenty-first baby appeared
at the home of Albert Johnson,
of Savannah, Georgia, the proud
father said he had named twenty but '
would have to take time to study up a
new name. He has 18 living children.
Why not call this one Omego?
It is said that Santa Claus is going
to join the profiteers and that prices
of Christmas toys will be at the top
notch. If old Santa does not want to
be hanged to his own Christmas tree
he had better be reasonable.

Columbus first sighted dry land he
did not have anv idea how drv it
It is said that whenever Lloyd
George has a generous and benevolent
moment he forgives Germany ^
part of the debt she owes France.
The head of a large business' house <
brought a number of "Do It Now" >
signs and hung them up around his i
office. They were effective beyond
expectation and yet it can scarcely be
said that they worked well.
When after the first few days the
business man counted up the results,
he found that the cashier had bolted
with $35,000, the head kookkeeper
had eloped with the stenographer and
three clerks had asked for a raise in
September 17 is Constitution Day,
the 135th anniversary of the adoption
of that great document which established
the principles under which this
country is governed. Schools and political
and civic organizations probably
will take passing note of the day,
but it should be observed more generally
and emphatically. /
Some hundred years after the Con- p
stitution was adopted, the great Eng- C
lish statesman, William Glad- k
stone, said of it that it was, so far 4
as he could see, "the most wonderful E
work struck off in a given time by K
the brain and purpose of man." Bj
These are times of disregard for E
law and order. There could be no K
better corrective than for every citi- D
xen of the United States to observe E
this anniversary by familiarizing g
more fully with the Constitution. E
Those who do so will be freshly im- K
pressed by the amazing way in which ?
it has met the needs of a govern- E
ment established under it but grown K
to a power and developed along lines |>
which the framers of the document E
could not foresee. (A

I understand that some erroneous li

Those Foolish Questions
A big powerful motor slowed up
as the occupants perceived a car of
very modest proportions standing by
the roadside in a rather battered condition.
The owner of the car was on
his knees, endeavoring to straighten
out some of the parts.
"Have an accident?" querried the
man in the big car.
"No, thank you,' grimly returned
the other, "just had one."?Pittsburg
Off On The Wrong Foot
The wicked garage keeper was trying
to figure out his income tax.
"If a man brings his car to me to
be repaired, and it costs me 60 cents,
and I charge hsr. $16, what per cent
profit would I be making?" he demanded
of his son and heir.
"I'm sure I don't know, pop," answered
that young hopeful. "You'll
nave vo j?ei someDoay who knows the
rules of grand larency to tell you
that. The rules for percentage would
not cover that."
