CALL OF THE SIREN Since the days of the far-wanderingUlysses who poured wax in his mariner's ears so that,they should not hear the witching soul-destroying cry of the siren and be lured unheeding into reach of the crouching death that waited for them and their ship on that foreign, rock-ribbed shore, ever since the first?gray dawn'of "hear-a-say" history,-the Call of the Sirenhas echoed in the ears of man. The day of the fishy and fishlike lady of eld i3 gone. Buried beneath the weight of the passing year3 her call lives on to ring through the lives of men. Some call its summons ambition, mistaking plods along the dusty highways of the world and whisp era in the hearts of men. notl , - .4 worthy "endeavor. To some the siren's call 0 . fame, of beauty, of infatuation, and at this time of year perchance, political preferment. Her song is not so harm ful in itself, but she blinds the oil unseeing to join life'slerelicts on the'rocks of Hate, Avarice, Greed, and Suspicion. the limits of this page to depict the Movie Siren, with her sinuous, sinister, twist.

KINNEY Mrs. Kate V. Kinney, the Republican candidate for County School Superinten dent at the coming election, comes before the electors of Navajo County as an able, experienced and eminently qualified teacher of many years service. Words of highest commendation are heard from every locality where she has taught. She is a resident of the state since 1900 and of the county for twenty years and she has held a first grade teacher's certificate in the territory and state during that period She is a graduate of the Campbell Normal University formerly of riolton Kansas now the Kansas City Univer sitv of Kansas Citv. She is also a graduate of the Kan sas State Normal School o EmDoria with the degree o A. B. and holds a Life Dip loma to teach. She also holds State certificate from Miss ouri and Minnesota. In com Detition she won the Helen Miller Gould western schol- arshiD. offered the Western States bv New York Univer sitv. given bv Helen Gould in memory of her mother. For two years she has been principal of the public schools of St. Joseph and is now teaching at Manila. Her exDerience in teach ing, in the conduct of schools and her long residence in the state and county amply qualify her for the position to which she aspires. Her reDutation as a woman of refinement, her record as teacher.her Americanization woak, experience in business affairs, all must appeal to the voter3 of the county that in the selecting of her to the office of County Sud- eritendent of school there is an assurance of an effici entand impartial adminis tration of the county's school affairs. Mrs. Kinney is a republican and a candi date upon the Republican ticket, out the office is abso lutely non-partisan. A vote for Mrs. Kinney is to advance the efficiency of bur school system. Her election means com petent management and in tellierent-supervision. Adv.

Cheney Co., Toledo, O. UNCOVER ANCIENT COLOMBIAN CITY Explorers for Field Museum Find Place That Was Once a World Center. ITS POPULATION WAS IMMENSE Inhabitant Wera Expert Builder of House and Road and War Skill ful In Making Gold Ornament. - Chicago. Rules of an ancient city of great size, hitherto unknown, have been uncovered In Colombia by tha Soutb American archeological expedi tion of the Field Museum of Natural History, working under the leadership of Dr. j. A. Mason. The ruins of the city, or collection of villages, are In a portion of Colombia now uninhabit ed and almost unknown to science. It is evident, the museum announced today, that this was once one of the great centers of population of: the world, but today even its name Is un known. The finds to date Indicate that in an cient times tbe country was densely in habited by settled agricultural tribes who were semlclvllized. They were ex pert builders and possessed great skill In the working of gold and precious stones. " Ancient Population Tremendous. Mr. Mason gent the following mes sage regarding the discoveries he has made thus far: "There must have been a tremendous population here at one time, as the country Is covered with house sites. The region Is very mountainous, and the bouses, which were of wood, were built on terraces made with retaining walls. In the center of each terrace there are entering steps of beautifully cut stone, and, If the main path Is far below, other steps are built to con nect the terrace with It. "The principal place where I have been working has a long staircase of 48 steps, all made of nicely cut quad' rangular stone slabs. Instead of the Indian road of which I have heard, there are thousands of them all through the mountains. There are ap parently wide roads connecting the main sites. Roads Skillfully Built "All are paved with flat watenvorn rocks of more or less uniform size, the small paths being a single line of such stones, while the more Important roads are four feet or more wide and edged with upright stones. When the way ascends or descends the' stones are set I steps. "On the side of almost every house there can still be found the metate, or grinding slab, on which the family ground its corn. In all the villages we have found quantities of broken pot tery, mostly fragments -of large uu- decorated jars. Some were- decorated with relief ornaments and there Is one sort of very fine black pottery which Is Incised or carved." The ancient inhabitants or this coun try decorated themselves with gold or naments and burled these with their dead. Tbe early Spaniards are known to have taken fabulous quantities of gold from the ancient graves and the further work of the expedition should bring to light many objects of value and Interest, it was said. Specimens already received at the museum Include gold bells, small beau tifully Vuade gold figures and orna ments of shell, carnellan and agate. The most valuable acquisition Is a complete set of ornaments worn by ft native pTiest in the performance of his religious duties. The expedition Is supported by the endowment of re search given to the museum by Capt. Marshall Field. Honesty' Bureau in School. New York. A suggestion by crim inals will probably be indorsed by New Tork schools. Dr. William Forbush, who is forming an "honesty bureau" in the schools, said that as the result of pleas made by men In prisons. honesty Is the best policy" courses will be added to the curriculum. Doc tor Forbush added: "We plan to or ganize the schools Into courts of hon esty where honesty will be an active virtue. Criminals have written ; me saying that if they had been instructed In tbe evil of wrongdoing they might not be in the position they now are."' Wayside Crab Market for Gotham Motorists New Tork. Automobilists have long been accustomed to seeing children, along the road side selling fruit and flowers, but the enterprising youngsters along upper Riverside drive have introduced tliera to a new and somewhat startling form of merchandise. This Is a good year for crabs In the Hudson. The boys are catching them wholesale and line the drive offering them for sale. To attract attention, they hold the twisting daws up for inspec tion. Getting live crabs home In an automobile may be some problem but then they're only 50 cents a dozen bought from these mer chants. On Mail Coat for Force. Berlin. Coats of mall have been adopted for German detectives en gaged In dangerous pursuits or crim inals, but because of a shortage of funds the Berlin department can own but one of the useful vesta of armor.
