Iowa Town May Become Another Klondike To Make the Education of the Public School Children More Practical 0 By MARY KING SHERMAN, General Federation of Women's Clubs jtt.t Contents 15"FluidDfaoln 8 I - "! ... A few weeks ago Bernard Smith, a a guy wire through a layer of from 6 was positive the layer contained gold. report showed that the gravel will run of gold hunters to Graettlnger, and main street of the town and, at the Austria Specializes of Begging and People Have Lost Every Sense of Dignity and Their Whole Charac ter, French Journalist Says Country Has Come to Look Upon Help From Abroad as Matter of Course New TorU. An Interesting picture of conditions In Austria is given in the following article written for the New York Herald by W. John Lenglet, a French journalist attached to the Japanese military mission in Vienna: After having been a year in Austria I have come to the conclusion that the country specializes in the art of beg ging and insulting. These two faults combined have been brought to such a height that the people have lost every sense of dignity and their whole character. This is specially clear to the for eigner who stays a good deal in Vienna. The foreigner who merely passes through brings nothing back but a remembrance of more or less gay eve nings and of fantastic figures of worth less currency; but he who has to live there and take part in the everyday life of Vienna, especially if he take the trouble to look deeply into the heart of things, is certainly convinced that side by side with a certain misery In the lower middle classes and priva tions among the upper classes, there exists among the new rich "sehieb ers" an indifference to all the Inter ests of Austria which is hardly believ able. The "schleber" may be the. middle man of business transactions, or even the business man quite simply. The "schleber" is also the "bucket shop keeper," who speculates illegally In exchange, who leads the freihandel (free commerce), and it Is he who piles up bundles of bank notes, a single one of which he will not spend unless it bring him the equivalent in pleasures or goods. The interest of Itis country? He laughs at it as at a splendid joke the starving children can be looked after by foreigners. He can eat white bread and he does so without scruple. He can drink cham pagne at 3,000 crowns a bottle. He provides his wife with magnificent furs and precious Jewels. He knows no duty but that of spending the money, which he has gained by exploiting his countrymen In pleasures and luxuries. He is the unmoral being who has sprung from the Austrian soil since misery spread over the land. The Valuta All Important When the little bourgeois or shop keeper smells the foreigner, he imme diately sizes up his "Valute. Tou are treated in accordance with the value of your national currency and the shop man tries to convince you that if he charges you three times as much as Austrians are charged he is still rendering you a great service: "Was ciacht das denn In Ihre Valute?" What does it matter compared to the value of your money?) This be comes as familiar as the greeting you fet when you go into a shop. If you tre good nutured you will simply accept this as part of the business. Worse things exist, for the Austrian has brought the art of hedging to such a pitch that he has made the whole world believe in him. and the whole world England and the United States at the head allows itself to be fooled ! Committees have been, formed Aus tria has been helped on every side her children have been sent to every country to be nourished and cared for; and when they come hack from these countries, dressed in new clothes and Improved morally and physically, their parents say : After all, it is not much . . . you see, the clothes are not chic; the stuff is not of the best quality, and the food, well, they do not trouble much about food over there." However, when one of their chil dren comes back, they do their best to Mnd another over to the same condi tions . . . that means another less to bother about ! The man who lives in Vienna and reads advertisements in the English papers about starving Vienna cannot , UNCLE SAM GOES "SEALING" Expects to Get 30,000 Pribilof Pelts in Summer Drive This Year. Seattle, Wash. Sealskin coats as many as can be made from about 30, 000 skins will be the objective this summer In the government's drive on Its seal preserves on the Pribilof Islands, whlc'i 0 In the Bering sea, f A''Rl.-fi farmer living one mile southeast of Graettlnger, la., was digging a hole to set to 8 inches of dark-colored gravel, lie could see the glistening of mica and He rushed some of the gravel to Des Moines and Chicago, and the essay $26.92 per ton, $21.50 being in gold. the place promises to become another right, Mr. Smith at the hole where he help pitying the naivete of the peo ple in England and other countries who send money for the children who are supposed to be dying In the streets. These advertisements are only a speculation on the good faith of the public; and the public who subscribe are robbed twice over; first of their confidence ; secondly, of their money. I do not suggest that the commit tees who Insert these advertisements are not acting in good faith, but that they are themselves victims to the exploitations of the Austrians and journalists in Austrian pay, who are determined to get as much sympathy for Austria and as much money as possible out of the foreigner. At one time the Austrian was In need of material help. This help was given him so generously that he ex pects it to go on forever. Mulcted by Drivers. What do some guilders, francs, dol lars or pounds matter to the foreign er? "Na, Ja, aber mit thren Valu teu!" (Well, with the value of their money) . . . and as the value of outside money is better than' Austrian currency, why should not the for eigner help Austria? At least that is how the Austrian reasons. He never asks himself who created this situ ation in his land. In all classes you meet the same phenomenon. For Instance, If you take a taxi, when you arrive at your door the driver asks you smilingly for twice the amount you ought to pay. If you protest, he says "But, sir, what does it matter with the val ue of your money?" So far he is very polite; but If you maintain your refusal, and you only pay the amount registered on the taximeter, with a certain tip let us say 10 per cent showers of abuse follow you into your house. At a restaurant the head waiter is very cringing when you give your orders. At the end of the meal, how ever, when you ask for your bill, he starts by making mistakes to his own advantage, of course, which by chance, you may find out and have the bill changed. Then you give hiui 10 per cent as a tip. The head waiter goes away and sends you the service waiter. Another tip required. Think ing yourself very generous, you with draw from the table when you sud denly hear the "buttons" exclaim: "Damned Frénenle (or any other na tionality, which this future head waiter considera you), not a single heller for" a tip! I must except the large restaurants, the staffs of which have been em ployed before the war in other coun tries. These are satisfied with 10 per cent on the bill. However, one can not go continually to the big restau rants with the present high prices. lou are treated in the same way by the shopkeeper and other people who have put themselves into public service. The method Is only varied according to the education they pos sess. In short, the foreigner in Aus tria must allow himself to be bled from every vein If he wishes to live in peace. Since the note of the French gov ernment, in the name of all the allied governments, threatening to withdraw all help from Austria in the event of her uniting with Germany, the hatred felt by the rescued for their rescuers rises to the surface. Every conversation between an Austrian and a foreigner Is full of underlying bit terness. The conversations which the Austrians hold among themselves In public places, regardless of the strangers within their midst, are full of unimaginable Insults. Their hatred does not extend only to the allies, but there even exists resentment against their beneficiaries, the neutrals. The Slaughter of the Pribilof seals be gan this year In June and will con tinue through the summer months, it was announced here recently. Last year 28,000 seals were taken and this year It is hoped to get 30,000. Recently the U. S. S. Saturn of the Navy department's transport service arrived here to load supplies for the annual summer campaign on the islands. The Saturn Is taking to the Prlbliofs eight expert furriers from a St. Louis firm which acts as the fi.el.lins agent for the government. 't -Til '.p ' :': , O Vv M Since then there has been a great rush Klondike. The Illustration shows the found the gold. in Art Insulting Dutch and Scandinavians have earned a lot of money. The South Ameri cans are rich. And all this shows that they should come to the help of Aus tria. The Austrians think that only fair. They do not expect otherwise. With the allies, especially those of the entente, it Is quite - another mat ter. The entente had dared to refuse the credits requested? What á pity Its prisoners were not allowed to starve during the war! The entente does not want us to join Germany? Well, we shall do so without its per mission. The time will come when we will ally with Germany to fight the entente. That is the reasoning of the German-Austrian, who the pre-war Ger man declared was Just good enough to black the boots of the German army. I have experienced moments during which the Austrian absence of char acter has been made clearly obvious. I returned in the company of my, wife and one of her friends one eve ning from Baden, a little mountain ous place, where one goes for week; ends. As my companions were Eng llsh we talked English. The tramcar, capable of carrying about forty pas sengers, presently filled up. Once on the way a man standing up, a typical German, started a propaganda against foreigners, and pointing to us desig nated us as English or Americans. He mixed himself up in our conver sation. He insulted us offensively in German. The whole compartment, consisting of all sorts and conditions of trav elers, supported this man. Vulgar coarseness succeeded to the Insults and jokes. Everything and all were passed in review, the allied govern ments and their chiefs, even Presi dent Wilson was not forgotten. In fact, he was spoken of most of all because these people took me for an American. Then they went on to more personal matters ourselves, our clothes, everything was analyzed and ridiculed. The most revolting things were said by the best-dressed men, and women Joined in with-degraded delight. The tram conductor laughed. I pretended not to understand. The only thing to do with these brutes. I even heard somebody make a sug gestion to throw ns out of the tram at the next stopping place. The starving children of Austria ex ist mostly in the imagination of those who earn an easy living by begging. As a matter of fact, one does not see more sickly-looking children in Vienna than in any other large town. If help were given to the children of the poor, of the unemployed, of the de mobilized soldiers without means of subsistence in England, America and France such charity would be put to a far better use. Waste of Coal and Light. In order to save coal, France and England ordered the dancing saloons and theaters to be closed earlier in the evening. Austria did nothing of the kind. Everything was illuminated a I.'i piorno till midnight. It did not matter if her subjects paid 8 kronen a kilogram for coal and her factories were obliged to stop work for lack of coal. 1) lute lit lllliAL lilliua nutra yiiirz a best to produce, the slightest Incident here creates a strike.

It stimulates initiative, inspires and develops leadership and increases the sense of indi vidual responsibility to the community. It results in the development of better American citizens. United States' Foreign Trade Policy Should Be Live and Let Live By FRANK A. VANDERLIP, New York Financier The very necessity of her situation will compel Germany to organize her industries on the most efficient duction costs. It is up to us to greater efficiency, not for the purpose but simply to maintain our position. Our foreign trade policy should in the case of both England and Germdty, their existence as great nations depends upon their ability to export great quantities of goods. Their ex port trade is vital to them. "With us foreign trade is important but not vital. - There had been developed over the greatest intricacy and delicacy for the exchange of goods among na tions. The war smashed this machine into bits. It will require time, great intelligence and much patience to put it together again. With No Revolvers, the Holdup Man's Victims Would Have a Chance By JOHN R. THOMPSON, Citizen disarmament ! Aside from world disarmament there is noth ing so important to civilization. This is my opinion and incidentally explains why I have "inserted in (several newspapers an advertisement "I will pay $1,000 to anyone who revolver manufacturing industry should be allowed to exist in America and enjoy the facilities of the mails." The revolver always has been and It is merely a weapon for the thug, the holdup man and the murderer. It is impossible to turn to any useful purpose, as one uses the rifle or shotgun. Where would our holdup man, doing such a thriving business in Chicago today, be, if he could not get hold of a revolver? He couldn't very well go round packing a shotgun or rifle, and if he carried only a piece of lead pipe or club the victim would at least have a fighting chance. I have long been convinced the revolver should go and the advertise ment is the first of a series to arouse public sentiment against it as the initial step toward a bill in congress banning, the making of small firearms. Matrimonial Happiness Wrecked by Helpmeets Who Wouldn't Talk By JUDGE JOSEPH Novelists have devoted carlods of paper and barrels of ink in making people believe the most unfortunate of husbands is the one who has a talka tive wife. But they're all wrong. Fifty per cent of the men who come to my court seeking a divorce have had their chances for matrimonial hap piness wrecked by wives who wouldn't talk. The most dangerous sort of a helpmate is the woman who sulks. I believe the majority of unhappy husbands are tired of their wives because the latter sulk and refuse to talk when they are displeased with something the husband has or has not done. When a man says, "Dear, did you have a good time at the movie, this afternoon ?" and the wife answers by tilting her chin in the air and calmly ignoring the fact that her husband has addressed her, there's going to be trouble. You see, a man is vain. He thinks every statement he makes should be csref ally heeded. When his wife to talk, his pride is hurt. Frequently he tries the same plan. Then it is not very long until the home is as quiet as a tomb and the air is charged with divorce electricity.

Within a few years the Saltón sea basin, near Indio, Cal., may become the center of the world's date culture, thanks to the efforts of the Depart ment of Agriculture. For nearly twenty years the bureau of plant Industry hns been endeavoring to procure shoots of the date palms which bear the fruit. known commercially as the Saldy, or Wahl, and Sewl varieties. So difficult was the source of the splendid fruit to trace that, up to 1913, only a few shoots had been procurable. At that time an Immense grove of 200,000 of the palms In the oasis of Dakhla, Tunis, was discovered. Negotiations for the purchase of specimens having been satisfactorily concluded, the collection of the shoots was begun.
