Thoughts on the War Onr world that was once so hoaulif ill With peace and silence In evqry land, Has turned in revenge and violence With nations fighting hand to'liaiul. It is hard to think of the tragedies That soldiers are fighting down. With hearts so full of sorrow And upon their faces a frown. We once shook hands with our foreign nei'bnrs And greeted them t o ourfree cwuul ry here, He gave them work to help them, And told them not to fear, That we had homes to comfort each With food so plentiful, too, Never thinking that these people Would prove themselves untrue. Though other countries are kind U > ns, Of G ermany we can not say They have fought with European na1 ions And want United States to pay The large sums they are spending To keep their armies ahead. But money will not pay the 'Lord Or account for the .soldiers dead. Can you think how this war started, What a trifling matter il. was? How the tide will turn from peace to rage And what revengefnlness does? Some were ready for this great strife, Others sat calm, stauneh and gay, Never thinking of a calamity Or that war -would rule the clay. United States was silent Though many offences she bore. Waiting that a friendly hand would bring A kind message to her shore. But hatred was in the enemy's veins To fightthis country she would. So U. S. A. decided to prepare And do all she could. Many of our brave boys have enlisted And have gone to join the fray. The parting w'lih their parents Was a sad and dreary day Some have gone t o the fronl already. They are our country's pride They are watchingthe foeboth day and night, And never from them hide. Boys, our brave young boys, Who have left our towns so brighl Will their service be needed Or will they reach home alright'/ iLet us pray that peace will cheer onr land And lighten our ladened hearts Make friends where we now have enemies Andwateh the other pant. Of countries that have been shn tiered And are waiting for the word That peace would sweep their nation- yi-i. That message fhi-y have never In ai'd. Now let us not elve up hopes For the good Lord dues all thingx right, Our world may be sooiiin ipiietnes^ And we will sfle everything very lirlghi. BKrerriAM. (JAINUS MudridN. Y. Destroyers Are Making Good. Definite information has reached th\ navy department that more submarines ere being run down, captured und de- stroyed than ever before, and although the exact details cannot be divulged, It Is known that the American destroy- er flotilla, wider Bear Admiral Sims, has been playing an active part In the work with the British and French fleets. One report hud It that during the Week, in which twenty-seven merchant vessels were sunk, twenty-eight Oor- man (submarines were captured or de- stroyed. It was also said that the amount of food and munitions reaching England from the X'nlted -Mutest lust week was the largest nines Feb. 1. The Increased success of the cam- paign against the U bouts la attributed more to improvements in organization than to any new devices. It is said the presence of Anierlcnn destroyers bus enabled the British and French to send some ot their small craft to their buses for docking and sorely needed rcjinlrs, after virtually continuous service for the past two years. Hereafter, It was announced ut the navy department, Information regit ril- ing the operations of American navul vessels In the wur ssonc will be given out here simultaneously with publica- tion iu Europe. The president will soon nominate Bear Admiral Sims to be rice udmJml In view of bis position us commander of American naval forces co-operating with th6 allies }n IDuropeun waters. ''LEAGUE TO ENFORCE PEACE\ SERMON Rev. £. T. Clements Speaks Plainly Convincingly at the Cong'1 Church Sunday Morn- ing, July 15th, of the Great World Plan for Peace. Rev. E. T. Clements was in i^ood town and eeemed to e,n,joy°;h,iis cbeima last Sunday mwnhig, when he isipofco of the present efforts made by -grcac world, leaders to bring atxHU world peace by aprac- ticai plan, a plan that is even moi-e significant in its implications than iu. ibs specific declarations. Launching directly into his dis- cooirse without aniruouncing a. text, .Rev. Clemienta stated that this was perhaps tine plan favored by more men o,f mote the world over than any other, it comeerjuently being the product of many istroimg minds as well as of many good hearts It erniiien,Uy desirable for our own country, Ex-President William H. 1'af.t beinig the head of the Ameri- can branch. The four main pro- posals of this plan to enforce tine peace of 'tine world are:— 1. All justiciable questioais arising Between, the 'signatory powers, not 'Settled by negotiation, shall, sub- ject to this limitation of treaties, De submitted to a judicial tribunal for hearing amid judgment, both uspofn. the merit's and upon .any issue ais to its juiriS'dicti'Oin of the qii'eistioai,. 2. All cither quastioinis arising be-, tween isignato.ries and_ not settled by negotiation*, ishaU be isubmitted •to a Council of Conciliation for hearing, consider a liooi and recora- mendauooi, 3. The isignflcoiry powers shall \oiuicly use forthiwith, both their. eeoinoinic aa'iid military forcesi againisc any one of their number •chiat goes to war, or commits acts oi hiuiatility, against a,niotlter of tli-e •signiacoii'ies beX'Ore aaty qneslioai lurnsing shall be sn.brnin.ed as pro- vided in, tine fol'egoiang. i. Coai erences between the'sigua-j tory powers shall be held froim time to. time to formulate and cod- ily ti'iuleis of interniatiuttial law, which,, iuinless soaue isig-natory stall signify its dissenit within a stated period, shall 'thereafter govern in the de- cisions of 'die Judicial Tribunal mejiitioued in Article 1. It thus will be seen that there woiuild be pro'Vided two different t'ribuinialis, the one to decide nioJt- t ens of legal right between nations, and the otter to try to per«uiade maititiiHis to peace in mat tea's where no law or legal precedent aeema to be applicable to the case, for inistaimee, should we exclude, J.aps while admitting HimiduiS? But 'tine Igreait puitut is,, this plain provides lor ia pauise of -six. rnoiuthis or longer before recourse imay be hiad to hostilities. As a final expedient the League of isignatory (or signing) nations woiuilu baling rnoival tiressure bo bear urtoin the country that istood out, oir, as a last resort, ostracism anu cuimpiete ecouioimlc boycott.

THE MAN WHO ADVERTISES IS THE MAN WHO SELLS No. 8 The War Advertising Nuisance Newspapers are simply swamped with requests for free advertising for war purposes. Women's War Relief associa- tions, Red Cross and Conservation organizations would put such, a burden on the local country weeklies as to constitute a serious loss were they allowed to, and some publishers foolishly allow in. In the first place, the Liberty Loan advertising which was done free was an unfair and unreasonable imposition. It was far greater in bulk than the other matters above mentioned, but pressure was brought to bear to force it, the appeal to \patriotism\ that was harder to withstand than an ordinary routh threat. Following this has come floods ot matter preaching conservation, which almost every paper has published more of than it could afford to, all for \patriotism.\ Away back in April Arthur Brisbane, the famous Hearst editor, hit the nail squarely on the head when he said it was neither just nor necessary for the government of the United States to ask the poorly paid country editors to give their space—tlie only commodity they live by—free, while at the same tirne^ it proposed to pay the copper and steel million- aires for their commodities at a profit of from one hundred to three hundred per cent. Hearst said that it was a contemptible thing for the government to pay enormous tribute to the bloated war lords and then go, hat in hand, like a beggar to tlie country editors who, instead of making money out of this war, had been hard hit by it, nearly two thousand of them being crowded out of business. So don't come around this Madrid Herald shop with your coaxing appeal for \patriotism.\ I, too, believe in patriotism, but don't propose to be made a free horse of by any such deal. You people who keep right on voting for that kind of a deal that pinches and enslaves the honest workers and producers of this country while at tlie same time the big oppressors are fattened and gorged more and more with bloody and dishonest and unpatriotic profits— you may go elsewhere with your appeals for \patriotic\ free space. News is always welcome, and is courteously and gratefully received, but asking for free advertising is just as insulting as asking for free tea, coffee, sugar, butter or clothing.

Armored Motor Battery, a Development of Field Artillery, Novel in New York =£££ , T , ^,/^« , ^ r ^ frrf , /y ^ r f =3K30ffl: All of the novelties of modern warfare have not yet been revealed to tlie American public, but it is no exaggeration to state that there are many of them. This picture shows three units of the First Armored Motor Battery of the N. Y. N. G. manoeuvcring near Fort Washington Parle, New York. The trucks have been drawn up in regular formation While the soldiers ire firing away at an imaginary enemy from a plain overlooking the Hud«ion River. This is the way they would fight in actual battle. Some of the men who man these formidable armored wiotor trucks act as scouts, using motorcycles. When the batteries approach they take their places in them, each being assigned to a machine gun or rifle. Officers use revolvers. The chauffeur is entirely hidden.

Captain Joshua Slocum, the famous solitary voyager, tells In' his \Sailing Alone Around the World\ an amusing story of the way In which he protected himself at night from marauding sav- ages while in the neighborhood of Cape Horn. When he went to sleep Captain Slocum would sprinkle the deck with carpet tacks, taking particular care that not a few of them stood \business end\ up. It is well known that one cannot step on a tack without saying something about It A pretty good Christian would whistle; a savage will howl and claw the air. And that was just what happened, Slocum re- ports, about 12 o'clock one night His vessel was boarded whiie'he slept. But no sooner had they stepped on deck than the savages, howling like a pack of hounds, jumped peSrnell, some Into their canoes and some into the sea, a great deal of free language escaping them as they went Slocum says that he was never disturbed again, though he sprinkled his deck with tacks many nights thereafter. Winks and Eye Bathe, Every few seconds we wink both our eyelids at once, although not purpose- ly. If we stop winking our eyes be- come uncomfortable and gradually cease to work as they should. When the eye is open the front of it is ex- posed to dirt and dnst and is apt to become so dry that a painful stinging sensation results or would do so if constant moisture were not provided to cleanse and soothe the tissues. As a matter of fact, each time we wink we wasli the eye, says the Popu- lar Science Monthly. Up above each eye is a tiny bag called the tear gland, and all the time we are awake it makes tears. When the front of the eye feels Itself becoming a little too dry or dusty a cornrmmication is sent for a supply of moisture. The eyelid then comes down with a tear inside it to wash clean the front of the eye. This is the most gentle and perfect washing in the world. Safety of a Ship. The safety of a ship depends upon its stability, strength, iwater tightness and reserve stability and floatability if injured. The strength is due to the tram big and plating or planking. Wa- ter tightness is effected by calking the seams between plates and planks. The seams of iron plates are calked by hammering the edge of the uppermost plates against the one underneath it. The scams between planks are partly filled with oakum, which is forced in and the. remainder of the seam filled with pitch, marine glue or pntty. The reserve stability and floatability when injured depend upon the position and volume of the interior space which is flooded. To reduce this volume to a safe point vessels are divided into com- partments by water tight \bulkheads which extend across the ship at Inter- vals. Redwood and Fire. Probably no other wood burns with more resistance than California red- wood. It seems to have been made fire resistant by nature. In logging ciiiups this is peculiarly noticeable, -for no other wood oould he so treated. Be- cause of the enormous size of redwood trees the lugs are very benvy—a six- teen foot butt log weighs from thirty to fifty tons—and it is very difficult to handle them when the ground is lit- tered with bark, undergrowth and tops. To get rid of this waste, or 'slash,\ as the lumhernion calls -it, he simply sets it on fire. The slash hums oil, hut the logs do not hum. .They come through this test hy fire, which lasts from eight to ten hours, with merely a slight char on the sapwood on their Too Much.

Bar- low of New York City who held the contract for its construction. The memorial, which Is at Mt. Au- burn cemetery, Cambridge, Mass., has required over a year and a half to complete. The fund for its construc- tion, amounting to over $150,000, was first announcod by the directors in June, 1911, and was some time ago fully subscribed. These coritrrhutlons have heen made as expressions of sentiment by Christian Scientists throughout the world. The site on which the memorial is located is not only one of groat nat- ural beauty, but on account of its grade has rendered possible a more picturesque and interesting treatment architecturally than would be poBBl- ble on a perfect level lot. The plot, which 1B approximately '80 feet square, Blopos gradually from the level of the roadway to the lake with a drop of about ten feet. The memorial con- sists Of a circular open colonnade of eight columns, resting upon a stylo- bate of throe stops, surrounded on the front by a circular platform slightly above the natural grade, from whidh platform a double flight of steps leadu I FREDERIC J.

Knuu\MM*Mnu<^i»m..u. to a lower platform at the take's- edr«w The scheme has no prototype and 1B merely a screen of columns open to the sky, Inclosing a flower-grown cir- cle. The material used for the memorial Is Bethel white granite, the inscrip- tion in the frieze and upon the top of the pylons being of white bronze set deep into .the stone work. The detail, which on account of the size of th« reproduction is only indicated, is en- tirely floral in form and free in 'treat- ment, the wild rose and the tnoralnlr- glory being used as the main motives. It is interesting architecturally ,to note that while It is extremely free in treatment and not at all conventional. it is generally very classic in feeling. The extreme width of the memorial is about fifty feet, and the colonnade is eighteen feet in diameter. The cud\ umns themselves are fifteen feet In height and are similar in general character to those in the Clepsydra, of Andronious of CyrrhUB. The larf* pylons were exhibited at the Ameri- can Institute of Architecture in New York a short time ago .and experts pronounced them the finest pieces of carved granite erer executed.
