More than a hundred friends testi fied to their affection for MaJ. K. B. Stahlmln. publisher of the Nashville Banner, Thursday, by entertaining him 'at a luncheon In celebration of his ! birthday. Ws suppose Maj. Stnhlman long since abandoned the practice of observing 'birthdays. 'Whether he observes them i or Hot he has had more than any active newspaper publisher In this part of the country. ;' MaJ. Btahlman ts a man of strong conviction, enterprise and enthusiasm. Through his paper he endeavors to take 'what he believes to be the right snd moral side of every Issue. Sometimes he Is wrong-, but he Is always honest. He has set a worthy example to the fraternity In publishing a paper that prints the news without color or bias, iand depends solely upon the editorial columns to Interpret the news and ex I press his opinions. . MaJ. Btahlman Is a great orraniser. .Mo has the faculty for surrounding 'himself with men of ability and he trust them Implicitly. In return for 'this confidence every man and woman Ion his paper esteems him with af fec it Ion not always found to exist between Hamployer and employe. Among the employes of the Banner who have been with Maj. Btahlman for la quarter of a century or more are 'Richard IX. Yancey, a native Fayette ountian, who got his start In Journal ism on the old Pctnervtlle Falcon, and is regarded as one of the ableat editors in the country: M. B. Morton, a Ken tucklan, who associated In his earlier Idays with the old regime of newspaper men and Imbibed many of their sterling qualities; Edgar Foster, who grew up tn the Banner office, and has never ihad any other employer than . MaJ. i Btahlman. "General" Grlgaby.' the '"watchdog1 of the treasury," and the C larks, who for many years have looked after the advertising. In thla way MaJ. Btahlman has es tabllshed a family In the Banner or ganisation. They stand together and rwork together with a oo-operatlon not excelled anywhere. ' MaJ. Btahlman Is a man of remarkable 1 eneroslty. He has never fceen known 'to decline to contribute to a worthy ; cause. Many Incidents of MaJ. 8tahl- . man's charity and kindness are known to th employes of the Banner. Not .often do these stories et outside the office. Never a year passes that MaJ. Stahl man does not remember every employe on the paper with a substantial Cnriat- 'jnsi present. The major himself gets more pleasure out of It thsn anyone " else. MaJ. Btahlman Is getting to be an ' old man. He has been active all of it Is life. Ha hss succeeded In nearly everything he has undertaken. He has .served the people faithfully and well and Nashville has no greater Inatltu tutlon than the Banner. It was a splendid and deserving thing ;hat his friends did In giving him a (testimonial of their regard, felt not only In Nashville but by friends throughout the state and elsewhere. the transportation problem in a current Issue, and especially with the Increased cost of operation und the luw return. said: "The largest demand is for locomo tives. The cost of a locomotive now adays is nearly 100,000, and I. SOD new englnea are needed this year. Thirty thousand box cars at I3.J00 will take nearly 100,00fl.000. Some $35,000,000 worth of new refrigerator cars are urgently needed, and 1,200 new passen ger coaches are called for to help make the public realise they are getting their money's worth for the new chance ol three and six-tenths cents per mile. "It is safe to say that no sweet girl graduate ever viewed her commence ment with more trepidation than that with which the battered veterans of the transportation field are now touring over the problem of Inducing capital to get buck Into the habit of buying rail road securities. "With a statutory dead line of per cent barring expectation of a rhance of ultimately Increasing dividend, ran the railroads hope to do much financing through ordinary stock Issues at par? Industrials have for a long time pushed the railroads Into second place with the investing public, and Industrial pre ferred stocks paying less than 7 per cent are for the most part bark num bers. "Industrial concerns of high rank and demonstrated earning capacity are offering preferred stock Issues carrying I per cent. All the railroads are well plastered over with first mortgages, and their managers would not willingly take on new fixed charges based on earn ings of a few years of record gross re ceipts. "Note Issues of the kind so popular a decade or so ago have a way of crowding In uncomfortably ahead of the stock, where In lean years there Is hardly room for both, and In any event now coat forbidding rates of Interest." In competition with other Investments the 6 per cent limitation may cause the railroads to experience difficulty In se curing the proper assistance In financing.

It begins to look as If the peak of high prices ha ibeen reached and that within the next 1 Jew months consumers will be enjoy- 1-lng a slight relief. 1 Indications of a more settled eon Vdition In Europe are also encouraging Arte to a belief that there will be even vS-mon substantial reduction in the cost of living. This country Is one of the last to return to a peacetime basis. Tourists recently returning from F.ngland, France and Germany report that prices there re much lower than they are 'n the aJnlted States.

If an excessive price Is placed ion a necessity they solve the problem py resorting to a cheaper substitute. It Is surprising that the speculators ttave been unable to not only maintain !but Increase prices of Mtaplcs in the f sea of record-breaking crops In this joountry. Some of them already are losing their Ill-gotten gains, fcnrt there are some (ho have been inflated with the Idea that they are financiers or big busi ness men, because they were able to Jet ny price they asked for anything they had to mU Who when the reac tion comes will find that they are not jlxjwe the mediocre quality that distin guished them in the difficult days be for the war.

Not until the rates had proved themselves was It worth while (to pat out a feeler. Capital simply would not bite. w Coimnawcw4ukl-lnaov-4eaUog with Recognizing Women. President Wilson has given substan tial evidence of his belief In the right of women to participate In the political affairs of the nation by appointing Miss Mube Boardman one of the three com missioners for tho District of Columbia. For a number of years Miss Board man has been virtually the head of the American Red Cross with offices In Washington. Hlie has made a splendid reputation as an executive. She has proven her qualifications by the per formance of a stupendous task In the trying years of the war. The District of Columbia Is governed by three commissioners. The work Is most exacting. There Is no city In the country where tho law Is so uniformly enforced and respucted as It Is In Washington. . The commissioners are appointed by the president and con firmed by the senate. There will be no obstacle In tho way of Miss Boardman's confirmation. Miss Boardman filled a vacancy caused by the resignation of Louis Brown low, a Tennessee newspaper man who has resided In Washington for a number of years. Mr. Brownlow has made an ideal official. He has gained the respect and confidence of tho peo ple of the district to an unusual de gree. There la no doubt that the po sition will be filled quite as acceptably by Miss Boardman, who has had un usual experience In executive affairs. Her appointment, coming at a time when the eyes of the country are cen tered upon the influence women will exert in politics by the recent adoption of the Nineteenth amendment, la an Indication that they will not be content merely to cast their ballots. Women, as they have a right to do. will offer themselves as occasion arises for offices for which they are quali fied by experience or disposition to fill. Her appointment to a federal position by President Wilson puts the Demo cratic party on record as recognising the women as a factor In political af fairs. It Is perhaps only a forerunner of appointments of a like nature to even more responsible positions. THE RIVER BY ELLA WHEELER WILCOX.

By DOROTHY OIX. The World's Highest Paid Woman Writer. (Copyright, 1920, by The Wheeler Syndicate, Inc.) Among my acquaintances is a woman who Ih a veritable household angel. And ah Ih adored by her family. Any way, they are never weary of telling, and other people, how they love her: and she believes them, for in His mercy !"d ordained that even the cleverest woman should be of an Idiotic trustful ness and credulity where her heart Is concerned. Now this woman Is as frail and as delicate as a flower. She Is one of the women who must be shielded and cared for like a hot-house plant if she In go ing to live, but apparently these mem bers of her own household, who sny they are so devoted to her, have never once noticed how thin she has grown, bow tired she looks, how tme droops tn her chair. Hit old mother, who lives with her. blesses Heaven for having bestowed upon her such a daughter, but uhu makes daughter take a thousand un necessary steps a dny to gratify her useless whims, and she rasps daugh ter's nervea to the breaking point by her ceaseless fretting and complaining because she Is old. because things are not like they used to be, because life generally Is as It is. The husband loves his wife so well that he will never let her go way from home even for a week's end, and simply laughs to scorn the doctor's order that sh must go to a rest cure for three months. Other men may let their wives go North in summer and South In win ter. He Is so devoted to his wife that he is lost when she is away. Why. the house is empty, and nothing goes right. and he can t tntiiK oi a tnmg 10 ou. Why. it upsets him for a wholo evening for her not to be walling at the door for lilm when he comes homo at night. And he pats himself on tho chest, and swells out with a sense of being the model lover Husband because ho is so devoted to his wife that he keeps her nallod to her own fireside. An.i the children tell vou that they have got the best mother on earth, and the clearest moincr, ana mo mother, und the girls will let her sit up half the night to make them frilly party dresses, and urge her on by tell ing her that Susy Snooks had real em broidery on her frock, and won't she me u Mute mora on theirs. And the boys scatter their clothes and belong ings all over the house, und call for mother to hunt their caps and bails and bats, und douulu tier worn py nceuiesn clutter. ih the curious nart of It all Is that these people really believe they love tho woman they are murdering, and when they have got in tneir aeomy worn, mn he lies at last In her coffin, they will .i,ki lir Butt mv. self-rlKhteoua- ly, that thank Goodness, they gave all the affection and appreciation she craved. And they would be furious If you told them that none of them ever really truly loved her. that all they ever loved was themselves, and that their feeling for the woman was measured In their own selfishness and what she did to make life pleasant for them, but you would tell them the truth, nevertheless If the mother loved her daughter she would spare her all the extra work she puts on her. and her whines of self pity for things no human being can help, if the husband loved the wife, he would deny himself the comfort of her presence for the sake of saving her life. If the children loved their mother, the girls would make their own clothes rather than see her tired hands laboring over them, nnd the boys save her every possible step by keeping their own things in order ns they do In ramp. In reality, words are no test of love. And they are pretty poor and cheap things as compared with deods. It is Idle to protest our affection when we do nothing; to show It. Real love Is not selfishness. It Is sacrifice. It does not seek Its own, but the happiness of an other. The man who does nothing to make his wife happy, who gives her no little treats, who never pays her a compli ment, who does not even notice whether she looks 111 or well, does not love her, no matter how much he misses her when she Is away from home. He thinks he loves her, but he only loves the comfort with which she surrounds him. The woman who ngs at her husband, who hen-pecks and tyrannises over him, and who makes his life hard and bur densome, may think she loves her hus band, but she doesn't. She loves only her sense of power and the creature comforts ho brings in. The parents who sacrifice their chil dren's lives to themselves, who keep a daughter bound like a slave to them because they do not want to be waited on by- hired hands, or prevent a son following a career because they can not bear to bo parted from him, only love themselves. They do not love their children. It Is no excuse to say that people do not think, that a man neglects his wife, that a wife Is cross and hateful to her husband, that children rob their parents and parents sacrifice their chil dren unconsciously. Heal love never forgets. It Is never blind. It Is always Sister-Anne-on-the-House-Top looking out for the welfare of its beloved. There Is Just one test of love. It Is preferring another before yourself. It's thinking of that other one first, last and all the time.

BY MILDRED MARSHALL ZOE. (Copyright, 1920. by The Wheeler Syn dicate, Inc.) One of the oldest feminine names In the history of etymology Is Zoe, signify ing "life." It had frequent usage In Biblical records and was a favorite in ancient Ureeco, but Its vogue dimin ished during tho Middle Ages and it has been revived only comparatively recently. H Is regarded as being as old Eve, and is generally translated as "the mother of all living." The Alexandrian Jews first used the name of Zoe when they translated the history of the first woman and gave her the title of Zoe Instead of Kve, in order to show the connection of the name with the phophecy. It continued In vogue among the tlreekB and came into fashion again in England with the revival of classic names. Just why it has become a favorite in recent years is impossible to determine, unless Its significance and the ancient associations, as well as the shortness nnd undoubtedly pleasing sound may be taken as sufficient reason. Jade, the Chinese emblem of life. Is a fitting talisman for Zoe. It Is be lieved to bring her health, wealth and happiness, l'articularly will it protect her from contagion and death by acci dent. Tuesday Is her lucky day and 3 her lucky number. Note to readers; Is there fact con cerning your name In which you are Interested?

(Copyright, 1920, by MoClure Newspaper Kyudlcatu.) BY HOWARD R. GARIS. Uncle WlKirllv LonKeam. the nice bunny rabbit gentleman, was watching some of the animal children come out of the hollow stump school one day, when n noticed tliat Heckle stubtaii, the girl bear, was walking all by herself. 'Dear me! said Uncle WiireHy. "I hope Beckle isn't too proud to walk with Lulu and Alice Wlbblewobblc, the ducks, or fugle Littleail, or Squeakte-Eekle, tne cousin mouse, or tne otner ammai girls. Ana l nope, went on tne nunny uncle, "that the other animal girla haven't been calling Becltie names, or making Tun of her so she doesn't feel happy with them. .Something must have happened, or Beckle would never be by herself his way. Mr. Longears watched a litis longer, but st 111 he did not see Beckle claying. running, laughing or rolling hoops with the other animal girls. "1 m going to see what s the matter. If I can't help perhups Nurse Jane can," said Uncle Wigglly. He hopped over the field toward Beckle. but as soon aa the little girl bear saw him coming eha called: "Oh, Uncle Wiggily! You'll take me; won't you? You'll take me, 1 know you will!" "Why. whafs the matter? asked tne bunny gentleman, for he saw that Beckle wan oil excited. "Are you afraid to go home alone, because you have had a little fuss with the other children?" Oh. no Nothing like that!" laugnea Beckle. "I Just want you to take me hipplty hop to the barber shop, Uncle Wigglly." "Goodness me sakes alive and Borne soft soap smls!" cried the bunny gentleman. "Take you to the barber shop! What for, Beckle? You don't need a shave " "No, but I do need a nmr cut, or, perhaps 1 should say a fur cut!" In terrupted Heckle, begging Uncle Wlg gily'B pardon for so doing. "1 want a lot of my long fur cut ofr," went on the little girl bear. "It's so long and hot, even if it is fall. I want to be dipped close, the way my brother .Neddie nas nis ncaa suuveu iu summer.

"And bv the time cold weather is here I'll grow out some more fur. Please taki' me to the barber's nnd have me clipped. Uncle Wiggily." begged Ueckie. The raiiim genueioaii mhiui, uw ueu. Anil then, ail of a sudden he thought of something funny, for he smiled, and his pink nose twinkled like the red light on top of a Christmas tree. ' "Oh, you'll take me. I know you!ll take mt!" cried Beckle, clapping her paws. "Yes. I suppose I will," said Uncle Wiggily. "But something may happen before we get to the barber shop, he whispered to himself. Off he started, over the fields and through the woods, and, all of a sud den, as they were going through the woods, near a hollow tree. Uncle Wig gily began flapping his hat around his head and ears, and he cried: "Hun, Eeckle! Run!" "What for?" asked the little Stubtail girl. "Bees!" answered Uncle Wiggily. "That's a bee tree, full of honey over there, and the bees miust think we want to take some, though we don't, and they're chasing ub. ltun, Beckie! Run!" Beckle did not stop to ask any more questions. Away she ran as fast as she could run, for she knew what It meant to be stung by a bee. on the end of her soft and tender nose. And Beckie ran so fast that she was soon ahead of Uncle Wiggily, who was still flapping his hat around his ears. "Wait for me, Beckle! Wait for me! Maybe you can help drive away the bees!" yelled the bunny. Then Beckie felt a little ashamed of herself, and she waited for the bunny to catch up to her. Then, as the bees still buizcd about. Beckie said: "I know what I'll do. Uncle Wiggily. I'll curl myself up In a little round ball, as a pussy rat does when she goes to sleep. I'll curl myself right around vou. and hide you and my nose, and my fur is so thick and heavy that no bee can sting through It." "Ha. I'm glad of that!" said Uncle Wiggily. Ho Beckle stretched out on the ground, and curled herself around her nose and Uncle Wiggily, and when the bees buzzed up they couldn't find a single place to sting through, as Beckie's fur was so thick. But then, all of a sudden the bees be gan to laugh. "Wo didn't chase you to sting you, said the Queen Bee. "We only flew after you, Uncle Wiggily, to tell you that you could have all the honey you wanted, nnd bo can Beckie. We are tame bees, and we wouldn't Bting you for anything." "Oh. I'm glad of that!" said the bun ny. "Anyhow, if you had been wild you couldn't have stitng us." "No," buraed the Queen Bee. "We couldn't sting through Beckie's thick fur. No bees could." The little girl bear looked at the bunny. "I I guess I don't want to go to the barber's," said Beckie. and the bunny's pink nose twinkled like a strawberry long cake as he laughed. And if the bread knife doesn't hide In the cake box when the carving fork wants it to go to tJie moving pictures, I'll tell you next about Uncle Wiggily's white hat. 99 Boys Sip "Red-Eye; Two Get Big Cargoes BY MRS. ELIZABETH THOMPSON. Dear Mrs. Thompson We are two girls from nice families. About two weeks ago we went out with three of our boy friends and drove by for some sandwiches. While waiting for them two of the boys took out a bottle of whisky, got out of the car, walked off a short distance and drank it. They came back and all took a drink together. It made two of them silly drunk. Do you think this was right? Should I have anything to do with them again? Is there any place ;n Mempis where I can have furs made over? Of course it was not right or gentle manly. You may be wise never to as sociate with them again. At any rate if they ask to go with you again, make it very plain that if they are ever guil tv cf such conduct again they will for feit your friendship. Do not go alone with them at night. You might be able to help these boys with the right de gree of friendliness and advice at this time. The News Scimitar does not give names and addresses of firms in this column. If you will send ms- your name and address I will be glad to tell you where you can have you fur made into a choker. Dear Mrs. Thompson I have dark brown hair a shade too dark, and have tried several remedies for lightening It. but have gotten no good results. I don't want to blondlne my hair, but would like It a shade redder than It la. Can you suggest a remedy? BUTTER CUP. Do nothing to bring about an artifi cial shade and stop using anything to change the color, but allow it to be as nature intended. Very probably it is much prettier as it is than you could make It. You can greatly improve your hair by giving It a briBk brushing every night just before retiring. When shampooing it use one teaspoonful of borax in the water.

I asked her for a date and she told me something very queer that her parent did not allow her to entertain hoyt at her home or else where. S'le Is about 18 or 19 years old and if you knew her and could hear her talk ycu would say she had more tense than a woman 25 or 30 yeara of age.

My son, in matters of love, some men are born wise, a few acquire wis dom; but many will not even permit wisdom to bo thrust upon them. For a youth of 20 regardeth love making as a sport rather than as an art; but at 40, he seeth his folly, and lamenteth It. Now, in a certain city, there dwelt a youth, who boasted openly, saying: "Behold, I have never kissed a woman." And the damsels hearkened and said: "How interesting!" But the .young men mocked him 'with jeers and laughter; and they formed a "club," and elected the unkissed youth the only member thereof. And they named him "The Lily, Baying: , ... "Poor dub! He knoweth not what he hath missed!" But there came unto him a bache lor who Knew women, and who had graduated from the school of expe rience with high honors, and many medals. , ., And the bachelor cheered the youth, "Bravo, my son! Thou art exceed ing wise! Yea. thou art knowing be yond thy years! "For lo. thou hast already awakened the curiosity of women, and made thy self a reputation amongst them. And henceforth, every damsel shall deter mine to be the first to kiss thee. "Yet, I charge thee, as thou treas urest the thrills of life, be not tempted' Nav, in all thy days, kiss no woman for" pastime, neither for curiosity; and give not any damsel a meaningless kiss, even to please her! "For a kiss without sentiment Is R9 meat without unit; yea, it is as non intoxicattrg as a home-made bever- aK"And he that taketh kissing as an amusement, and tsasteth his kisses upon every kissable woman shall soon lose all discrimination. ' "But he that preservetb. nis kisses for the few. and his sentiment for the se lect shall be called 'Itresistible amongst women; and his dour shall be hung with garlands, and his (Jays filled with thrills and with conquests. "Verilv, verily, unto one man, a kiss Is a pastime, and unto another a privi lege' unto one man a Bacrament; and unto another an experiment: unto one man a habit, and unto another an art. "But, unto the last ot these, only, it never becometh a bore. "For he that kisseth not often, but wisely, knoweth the real thing from the imitation, and can not be deceived by 'artificial honey.' "Likewise, he knoweth that the swtest kiss is the first kiss, and tho sweetest part of a kiss the moment just before taking. "He plaveth not the 'cave-man, bnt is slow to kiss, and restrained in his k if pi njf "He kisseth not a damsel at the first opportunity, neither at the second, but keepeth her waiting until the psycho logical moment.
