BASEBALL
The second game of the season
between Si. Johns ar.d Holbrook
was both fa3t and briuiact be
cause j'i?t one hour was clipped
off the time of the first (fame.
And while Holbrook made more
errors, these were due in a large
measure to our boys going after
almost impossible driyes and
long hits. Witness Engle's trj
for a Texa? leaguer. That boy
is some ball pjayer. Itis certain
the score keeper disliked to give
Eagle an error on his splendid
try. Bi5 thit is baie ball!
. Thejday was ideal, with a fa:r
breez? springing up now and
then. O ily the risrhtand part of
the center field wa-s slow; the
resto f the diamond was fast
and satisfactory.
St. Johns scored their only run
in the first inning: thereafter
they drew blanks with mcnoto
nous regularity. Holbrook start
ed off a little uncertain, but af
ter the firát inning there was no
question as to which team was
master. Every man on the Hol
brook team played well, while
the work of Reu" , Engle and
Lse give them . individual
right to be class, - j starring.
St. Johns' catcher, v Oerson,
is a splendid catcher and a well
diciplined player. The boys were
all gentlemen. A return game
with this team would be interest

GOOD NEWS
Lyman.L. Pierce of San
Francisco visited S. Earl
Taylor on Wednesday of this
week. Mr. Pierce will no
doubt be recognized by many
on account of his arduous
and successful work in con
nection with the San Fran
cisco Chapter of the Ameri
canRed Cross.
Mr. Taylor seemingly has
no doubt as to the future of
the oil situation here, as' he
heartily welcomes his friends
inspection.
HE WANTED MORE
Mabel was telling Isabel
of the shy young man that
had for some months been
"gone" on her, but whose
suit had languished because
he simply hadn't the courage
to speak out. Finally Mabel
aaid, she decided that it was
"up to her" to take decisive
measures. Accordingly the
next time he called she
pointed to the carnation in
his buttonhole and said;
"I'll give you a kiss tor that
"carnation."
Whereupon the bashful
suitor's color outdid the car
nation in brilliancy, but the
exchange was effected. Then
the young man grabbed his
hat and started to leave the
room.
"Where are you going?"
demanded Madel, surprised.
"To the florists' for more
carnations," he called as he
shot through the doorway.

AN EXEMPLAR OF
LAW AND ORDER
Washington, May, 5. "On
May 5th occured the centen
nary of the death of Napo
leon, the idol of France,"
"The occasion is one for the
review of the life and ac
complishments of the great
man to see if we cannot draw
from his career lessons for
present day application. The
world is prone to think of
Napoleon solely as a mighty
military man, paying little
attention to his civil record
as Emperor of France. It is
true that he was one of the
greatest generals who ever
lived. As Marbot tells us,
the soldier who understands
Napoleon's strategy has
nothing more to learn. But
there is another side to the
character of the French lead
er that is worthy of study in
these abnormal times.
"To begin with, Napoleon
was not a native Frenchman.
He was born in the island of
Corsica, a French possession,
it is true, but the life and
thought of whose people had
little in common with the
French. When the young
man landed in France and
entered a military school at
the age of ten he was, to all
intents and purposes, an im
migrant. His ultimate rise
from that humble station to
the dictatorship of France
should be an inspiration to
every emigrant to a foreign
land . The Presidency of the
United States is limited by
the Constitution to native-
born Americans, but there
is no other office or social
station in the whole land
that is not available to every
new- comer to our -shores.
The immigrant is limited
only by his own will, ability,
and good behavior.
"At the age 23 Napoleon
was brought face to face
with mob rule. He was in
Paris on that fateful 20th of
June, 1792, when the rabble
invaded the Tuileries, and
was a close observer of the
events that followed, ending
in the guillotining of the
royal family and many of the
French aristocracy. For ten
years thereat ter he was oc
cupied with military duties,
but when he was proclaimed
Consul in leuz the impres
sions that had been made
upon his mind by the hor
rors of the Revolution found
expression, and he devoted
himself to setting up a gov
ernment based on law and
order. He established an
education system, the Bank
of France, the Legion of
Honor, and the Nopoleonic
Code of laws which is the
guide of French law today
and has had a profound in
fluence on justice through
out the world. 'It would be
very difficult to disprove the
statement,' declares one
writer, 'that the superb in
heritance of order, progress,
and prosperty which Napo

ABOUT TOURISTS
More road tourists are coming
this way!
The first "croD" of aute
travelers been forwarded i. to
secretary óf the (local commtr
cial organization) by the Nation
al Park-to-Park Highway As
sociation. The list received con
tains the names of fifty persona
who have written to the execu
tive office in Denver for a guide
and other road informática.
There is the assurance that
many other lists will follow this
one, as an evidence of the as
sociation's policy actually to di
rect a greater volume of tourist
business thru this community.
One thousand inquires have
been received within sixty days
by the association, which has
sent each inquirvs a road guide
leaflet mentioning this and other
to wn8 on the highway. Mileage
between places is given in a
simple and unusual manner.
Whether the tourist will
"liager a little longer" than be
anticipated depends on hew ef
fectively the side trips and points
of ganeral interest are brought
to his attention beforehand.
Gus Holm's, secretary-manager
of the association, in prepar
ing the inquiry lists also urges
each town to mail its own litera
ture, thereby interesting the
prospective road traveler and his
family to stay awhile in ccn
m unities that make the most sin
cere appeal for their temporary
residence.
The inquiries come frcm virt
ually all parts of the East. South
and Middle West, and the Iccsl
commercial organization is asked
to send its available literature,
or otherwise communicate witk
the prospective travelers.

"In the knapsack of each
of my privates is a marshal's

tion from the great Corsi
can. He meant that the op
portunity was there, and it
remained only for the. indi
vidual to grasp and develop
it to become a leader among
men. Success and wealth
are within thé grasp of every
individual among us today,
be he native or. imigrant,
and so long as they will b
placed in the way of highest
attainment. 'If Napeleon
could do it, I can do it,' is
the proud boast of every
Frenchman, and with him
as their ideal they strive for
success. Let every immi
