Something to
Think About
By F. A. WALKER
DEVIL WORSHIP
AN AMERICAN explorer has Just
returned to civilization after a
visit to the interior of Ecuador and
the homeland of the .Tlbaro Indians.
This tribe of head hunting savages
have lived In the same territory since
long before Columbus discovered the
Americas and have kept wholly free
from the influence of civilization.
The most striking evidence of their
failure to advance in the centuries
which have passed over them is the
report of the explorer that the Jibaros
do riot believe in a Cod, but that they
do worship devils.
It is practically the universal his
tory of the developments of all co
pies from the savage state to that of
civilization, that the belief in devils
precedes that of a belief in Cod.
, Before they conceive or defy a
ruler in' the realm of good they estab
lish a kingdom of evil and nominate
a being supreme In the management of
one or all forms of danger and misfor
tune. Herbert Spencer in his analysis of
human worship bases religion on the
Unknown, declaring that the savage
first worships those powers which he
does not understand.
It is the savage's inability, because
of his savagery, to trace cause from
effect that leads him to assign to totally
unrelated things the cause for what
he observes.
And since It is those things which
harm or threaten him with harm which
most concern him he establishes first
his devil causes rather than his Cod
causes.
He hears in the thunder the voice
of a devil living in the sky who pun
ishes with the swift lightning and with
fire.
He sees a devil in the wild beast
that kills his cattle. There is a demon
power that helps his enemies of an
other tribe.
The white man's gun is an inven
tion of some evil spirit and the drought
which spoils his crop or the deluge
which overflows his lands are evi
dences to him of the activities of
some powerful and unfriendly spirit
; which he must In some way appease.
In some of the earliest written his
tory of this country, the narrative left
by Captain John Smith of Virginia,
' there Is much space devoted to the
devil worship of the Indians of that
territory and the sacrifice of children
to quiet the wrath of the evil ones.
All through tradition and history
from Set, the demon of death and evil
In the mythology of early Egypt down
to the IIopl Indian dances which take
place yearly in Arizona, there has
been a continuous story of devil wor
ship and rites and rituals Intended to
appease his wrath and gain his friend
ship. , Each of us, highly civilized as we

think we are, gives a tremendous pow
er to evil.
Despite the fact that we read In the
Bible, and generally think we believe
it, that the Cod of our civilized Ideas
is omnipotent all powerful we Im
mediately deny that fact by giving
evil, which cannot be an attribute of
God, equal or greater power.
Practically everybody, unless we ex
cept Christian Science believers, think
that sickness is much more powerful
than health and that death is cer
tain to triumph over life.
We can only establish the rule of
evil by suppressing the rule of good.
Darkness Is In itself nothing; It is
only the absence of light.
Silence Is only the absence of
sound.
Death Is only a local ceasing of the
phenomena of life.
The way to get rid of darkness Is
to let in the light.
The way to get rid of evil Is to let
in and encourage good.
Perhaps we should not blame the
poor ravage in Ecuador for failing to
believe In Cod and having a liberal
supply of devils. He has not yet been
able to think out the truth.
But, we who are wiser and, we hope,
better for that wisdom, should see to
it that as little as possible of "devil
worship" creeps Into our existences
and Influences our lives.

THE GIRL ON THE JOB 1
5 How to Succeed How to Get B
j Ahead How to Make Good
By JESSIE ROBERTS
iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiimiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiimifl
PART TIME WORK
TIIEKE are two reasons why part
time work Is sought. The first Is
that the woman who has her own home
to run cannot be away all day without
serious consequences, particularly If
she Is a mother as well as a wife.
Yet It Is sometimes necessary to have
the woman add something to the di
rect Income. Part time work Is the
solution.
The second reason Is that the regu
lar Job does not pay enough. This Is
often the case with teachers and li
brarians and other professional work
ers whose salaries are small, while
the calls upon them are great. They
do not want to give up the special pro
fessional labor In which they are regu
larly engaged, yet they mast have
more money.
Summer Jobs are various, from ac
cepting positions as governess to chil
dren, or waiting at summer hotels, to
filling in at offices where vacations are
cutting down the regular force. A
stenographic summer Job can often be
secured In an office for two weeks or
a month, and then another one, and so
on until the vacation season closes.
Some women are successful In taking
parties of young girls or older women
on tourist excursions, charging a good
price for services of this sort.
Lecturing Is another good part-time
Job. The lectures are planned for
women's clubs and political associa
tions. To succeed here you must be a
good speaker, and have from four to
I six lively papers to read on any given
subject, or on two or three allied sub
jects. It Is best to specialize.
Teaching craft work Is an excellent
part-time occupation, and so are the
various housekeeping Jobs that are
opening for the trained woman who
wishes to give only half a day to such
work. Two women I know divide be
tween them the work of an office, as
well as the salary. One goes for the
morning, the other for the afternoon,
and this has worked well.
The woman looking for part-time
work Is more likely to get It today
than In any period before. It Is a
solution for both employer and em
ployees that Is certain to become
more and more popular.
PRESIDENT URGES
FULL ATTENDANCE
WANTS EVERY YOUNG MAN WHO
CAN, TO REPORT AT WAR
TRAINING CAMPS.
INDIVIDUAL AND NATION BENEFIT
Expresses Hope That System of Vol
untary Military Training Will Be'
Established In U. S.
Washington. President Harding
urges every young man who can pos
sibly arrange to do so to attend one
of the citizens' military training
camps to be conducted by the war de
partment this summer. In a state
ment made public early this week he
expressed the hope that during his
administration arrangements will be
completed for giving military training
to at least 100,000 young men each
year.
The text of the statement said: "I
hope every young man who can ar
range it will attend one of the citi
zens' military training camps to be
conducted this summer by the war
department In each of the nine army
corps areas.
"In this way he will Increase UIs
worth to the nation and obtain In
dividual benefits of priceless value to
himself and to the community In
which he Uvea.
"I hope to see established during
my administration a comprehensive !
system of voluntary military training !
for at least 100,000 men each year.
Every young man who Is willing to
prepare himself for the defense of his
country should be given an oppor
tunity to do so.
"Our present national defense law
established an economical and demo
cratic military policy thoroughly con
sistent with our national traditions.
It provides for a small regular army
to be augmented by great citizen
forces in the event of national emer
gency. "This is our traditional military po
licy. Dut whereas in the past these
larger war forces have been extem
porized after the occurrence of an
emergency, the new law wisely pro
vides that the framework of their or
ganization shall be established and
developed In time of peace, Insofar as
this is practicable through the vol
untary service of our patriotic young
men.
"The army of the United States as
defined in the new law comprises the
regular army, the National Guard and
the organized reserves. Every pat
riotic citizen should encourage de
velopment of these forces, each with
in Its proper sphere."
GROWERS SUE HEALTH BOARD
Allege $1,000,000 Damages for Warn
ing Against Ripe Olives.

MEALS FOR THE DAY.
COMBINATIONS are not always
good In leftovers, unless great
care Is used In blending them. The
following, though unusual, proved very
good. A cupful or two of veal broth
with noodles was the basis of this
dish. A baking dish was well greased
with the fat from a piece of steak, also
a small bit of cold steak was minced
and put Into the dish, with some of
the cooked veal, also minced, then the
noodles and the Jellied soup, a dish
of creamed onions (which were also
leftovers) were chopped and added,
and the whole covered with leftover
mashed potato, moistened with milk.
Bake until the potato Is slightly brown
and serve from the dish. Add such
seasonings as are needed when arrang
ing the food in the pan.
Liver With Onion Sauce.
Parboil sliced calf's liver until well
heated, turning In the boiling water;
drain and dip in flour well seasoned,
and fry in hot bacon fat until well
cooked. Fry a cupful of chopped
onions In the remaining fat, until a
slight brown; add a tablespoonful of
vinegar and pour over the liver.
Potato Spring Salad.
Cook the potatoes with their skins
on; cool and peel, then cut In dice;
add a handful of minced chives or a
finely shredded onion. Now add fine
ly minced, tender uncooked dandelion
greens. Mix all together and pour
over hot bacon fat with the bacon
minced In It; stir and mix well, then
add a little boiling hot vinegar, salt
and pepper and serve hot.
Wilted Cucumbers With Sour Cream.
Slice the cucumbers after peeling
them and let them stand In salted wa
ter until wilted. Rinse In fresh wa
ter, Ice cold, and dry on a cloth. Sea
son with salt and pepper and serve
with thick sour cream. There are
many people who consider cucumbers
unwholesome If not soaked In salt wa
ter until all the crlspness Is removed.
Cucumbers are Indigestible for some
people Just as the lovely strawberry
distresses some stomachs, but a fresh,
crisp cucumber dressed with a good
salad dressing is a most delectable
vegetable for the normal appetite.

THE ROMANCE OF WORDS
"TINKER'S DAM."
RELYING solely upon the
phonetic sound of this ex
pression, It appears to be dis
tinctly profane and a number of
writers have fallen Into the er
ror of spelling "dam" as If It
were the word derived from the
same source as "condemn."
To say that a person or a
thing Is "hot worth a tinker's
dam" Is, however, not related
In any munner to profanity, but
gets Its meaning from the fact
that a tinker's dam was a wall
of dough or soft clay raised
around a spot which a plumber,
In repairing, desired to flood
with solder. The material of
which this dam was made could
be used only once and was then
thrown away as utterly worth
less. Meanwhile, it had served
the purpose of stopping or dam
ming up the molten metal. The
colloquial slmllw Is, therefore,
derived from this short period
of usefulness and not from any
widespread use of the word
"damn" on the part of tinkers er
plumbers. (Copyright.)
