California Writer Arises In Wrath to Dsny That Seventy-Two Should B Considered a "Rip Old Age." A newspaper Item, a few duys ago, stated that a certain man named So-and-So died "nt the ripe old age of seventy-two." Commenting on this the Los Angeles Times says that seventy-two Is not a ripe old age and adds: A ripe old age Is an age when the person who tuts attained It Is ready for old Father Time to come along and pluck him from the tree of life. If you will take a bird's-eye view of the ac tivities of the world at the present hour, or even If you will look about you In your own community, yon will see that men and women of seventy two are among tbe foremost hustlers everywhere. Active beads of great nations, big business men In tbe biggest businesses, leaders and go-getters of all descrip tions In every direction yon look have passed the seventy-two mark and aro still going strong. Why, s man should be about at bis best at the age of seventy-two. And It Is at that uge that woman should reully begin to enjoy life in bigb beeled shoes, short skirts and a bat with roses all over It, Cnto did not begin the study of Greek until be was eighty years of age, and it was at the same age that Plu tarch began the study of Latin. Hobbes, the English philosopher, pub lished Ids best book when be was eighty-seven, and Chevreul, forever Immor tal In scientific research, was busy as a bee at his work In bis one hundred and second year. One of the most active lawyers of tho Los Angeles county bar Is past his nluetleth year, and we know of anoth er Los Angeles mun who has Just been appointed cashier of a new bank at tbe age of seventy-four. In short, the cold fact Is that seventy-two l very fur indeed from being "a ripe old age." On the other hnnd. of course, a man can let himself be old at most any age. There are lots of men who are old at thirty, hut It is a slate of mind with them nnd not a physical condi tion, even though they may not be In good health. As to women, we very well know that It was the fashion for them to be old and fear milled caps at forty. But that isn't the cuse uow, by any means. Think of Lillian Russell, Sara Bern bardt und Schuniunn-Heink, merely to mention some of the more prominent women of our time. We would go so far as to say that age Is a question of what way we look ut It. Tliut "a man Is as old as he feels nnd a woman as old as she looks,' is. Indeed, a very good saying. A man Is a fool not to feel all right, and a woiiiim miiy be trusted never to "look' old .If she is the woman she ought to be. It Is a great Idea for a man when he Is anywhere between fifty nnd seventy to mentally start all over again as though he had set out, like a boy, upon the great adventure of life. Instead of spending his time then In vnln regrets, let him resolve to attain all that he has missed. Let him, above all things else, renew his enthusiasm. Let him go to the circus agnln and buy pen nuts for the elephant; let him go, stark; Into an old swimming hole; whenever ho hears a band let him fol low It till he has lost the way home. It shall be just us we think about it. We are to remember that we shall live only once on this earth, and that we will be a long time dead. His Achievements. "I have been lu business here at the old stnnd for thirty-four years," ad mitted the proprietor of the Right I'liiee Store in I'etunln. "During that time 27.050, In round numbers, fresh young drummers have tried to talk me Into buying rare bargains that 1 didn't want, nnd 13.525 well-meaning lunk heads have left the door open when It ought to have been shut. I . have listened with a crocodile smile to some thing like 46,743 old stories nnd no more than two dozen new ones. I have furnished settln' places for all the prominent nnd Influential loafers of the community, nnd hnve had two tons of prunes, cheese and ginger-snaps ett up by 'em. I nm thirty-four years old er than I was when I began, and very little wiser or richer. I have trusted almost everybody who has asked me to, nnd some qf them cheated me and others didn't. So, speaking biological ly, I s'pose I don't think any worse of my feller citizens than tbey do of me." Kansas City Star. Tunnels and Geology. .

' One of the principal Siberian cities .a Tobolsk, the commercial center of the vast province of Tobolsk, which extends over nn area of 500,000 square allies, a large portion of which, how ever, Is practically uninhabited. The aiost prominent building In the city is Hie Kremlin, built in Imitation of the great citadel in Moscow. This struc ture was erected by Swedish prisoners of war captured by Peter the Great at the battle of Poltava in 1709. ' How Schooner Got Name. How did the name "scnooner" orig inate? It was about the year 1713 and at Gloucester the first vessel of the schooner type was launched. A tradi tion persists that enthusiastic at the speed made on her trial trip a boy ex claimed, "See how she schoonsl" "A schooner let her be I" agreed the build er, hearing the remark. This is a prob able story ; the word schoon In ancient New England meant a flat stone to skip along the water. j ,. ' , 5 . i : All kinds of Commercial Printing at the Courier Office.
