The Origin of Life earth may have originated in nothing more com- thafn puddles of warm rain-water millions of according to an article by Dr. Assar Hadding, geologist, in the annual report of the Smithsonian happened, says Dr. Hadding, in the polar 5er"S the eafth first cooled enough to permit water oh the surface. These pools would have been salty,, and conditions for the development of an or,—^ -ill would have been favorable. ; Jul'M*tiiis,, probably, is abotit as close to the truth of the atter'.as we dan get-'with our present knowledge. But the fc_i^it.-_g ajjout jt i s tha t no ma tter how hard we try. we the whole business seem at all real, ., _. .an believe it, of course. Anyone who is moderately mja^with science .Will agree that that, or something like waFpfODably the beginning of life on this planet. But Qfhow it [doesn't seem to get us anywhere. Our belief, like ''prira.wal'-puddles themseves, is luke-warm and slightly Is He Just Chasing Rainbows? Days of Yore From the flics of Washington Telegraph Eighty-five Years Ago. THE COTTON CROP: Evidences of an unmistakable and most reliable character continue daily to develop themselves fully sustaining the numerous accounts heretofore given of a diminished yield of cotton. The deficiency amounts to 118,000 bales, enough'to'convince every one of the Serious shortness of the crop. We are no short crop croaker, but that the wolf has come this time, there can be no doubt whatever. fore we have traced our ancestry back that far e,dr less dizzy. Science, entreating us to accept the ath,,'lakes Us far beyond our proper d,epth. vf* „ h'a'riy^mental picture of things. We* cannot really iotfr/elve's that those splashy mud-puddles of the st contained the seeds of all of the intellect and all all of the love and all of the beauty that are -today. eJy likely, is the fault of our imperfect brains. Jut it dees indicate that the eternal mystery which enshrouds l human life is not in the least lessened by the careful explanations of the scientists. They try to lift it, but when they "It thifotfgh it is as heavy, as impenetrable and as magical everr" An4 that, in turn, is very good for us. The statement that wePdannot live by bread alone means, among other things, at our minds must have room to roam about unfettered. e frontiers before and behind us are still unexplored, in pife of the wise men. Their tales about what lies beyond do fiaot convince us. ' Stamp Collector's Stunt !' stamp collector is .a man apart, and he occasionally is unable to spot the ridiculousness of a given situation. |That,-at-least, seems to be the explanation of the plans recently announced whereby a special delivery of mail is to be niade-^via airplane and deep-sea divers—to the decks of the ' gfanken liner Lusitania. V A special pouch of letters will be flown from Ireland to ''the tUff&i of the salvage ship sometime next spring. The let- /ters wjlf be taken down to the Lusitania, brought to the ,' surface again, and forwarded back to their senders. To transmit a»letter on this unique circuit will cost each sender one dollar-; Probably it would be thrilling to own a stamp that had I been f° the bottom of the sea and back. But to anyone but a ;lconfirmed stamp collector, this stunt must look more than a 'little "silly. ' A more supremely useless bit of human endeavor would be hard to imagine. *• Pepping Up Congressional Record QliORESSMAN John J. Boylan of New York believes that » V the Congressional record is too dull and fails to present a f> fair and complete picture of the doings of the national legis- ; iatlire. So, in a resolution introduced the other day, he asks s Congress to decide if pictures, cartoons, and the like couldn't "' &e printed in the government's august magazine. That the Record is dull is perfectly true. But there is a -•much quicker and easier way of reducing some of the dullness, and that is to .do away with the extension-of-remarks busiriess which now clutters it up. Any congressman can have a long, windy an dexcessively uninteresting speech inserted jn the Record-without ever going to the trouble of delivering it IJe ca. neven nisert such parenthetical comments aa (laughter) and (applause) wherever he chooses. If the Record could be confined strictly to things actually said on the floors of the two houses it would be vastly improved, tgt Mr. Boylan give it a thought before a photoengraving outfit is got ready. MOfcE VOLUNTEERS: Texas has been called upon' for a regiment of calvary to serve during the war with Mexico.

The public is respectfully invited.to attend. .J, A. L. PURDOM, Secretary. THE WIND WAGON: The last Independent Expositor (Santa Fe) is in fits about the success of a newly invented wind wagon, which by the byes, if it works as well as stated, will be of no small consequence' in the prairie country. Mr. Thomas, the inventor, is said to have run about in a light breeze, at the rate of eigty miles an hour, .and he has reached twenty. The wagon has a wheel twelve feet in diameter and one foot broad. It is ship rigged, carries ballast, may be made of any size, and the inventor guarantees to run a line of them and carry pasengers.

That Japan's financial difficulties are directly connected wit hher militaristic spree in Manchuria can hardly be denied. The moral is rather obvious. From a military standpoint, Japan has hardly any opposition in Manchuria. She is "winning the war" on the battlefields in fine style. At home, however, she seems to be iosing it.
