OT A GOOD AMERICAN "When Lady Astor said "I wish from the bottom of my heart that America was at Genoa" end that "America will have to en to Europe yet," she directly contradicted that other statement regarding: her nationality, when he said she was fifty-fifty. S.he was referring then to the fact that she was born in Virginia, although she is now a British subject. Her anxiety to see America at Genoa indicates that she is far more British in her sympathies than American. No patritic American would care to see this country entangled in the Genoa conference. From the American standpoint, the wisdom of the administration in holding aloof from Genoa is being: demonstrated more clearly every day. And when Lady Astor said "The Old World looks to America for moral lead," she talked exactly as European politicians have talked when they had a European ax to grind. The typical European politician talks glibly about America's "moral lead," but when it comes to framing policies of state American interference is resented. If Lady Astor were sincerely interested in the welfare of America she would rejoice because America is attending to its own affairs. Rochester(N. Y.) Democrat and Chronicle. THE "CHILD CRUSADERS" President Harding has estimated correctly the carefully advertised "Childrens' Crusade" that has reached Washington, and whose manipulators have announced that it will be turned into a "Picket Crusade" in front of the White House. There was, is and will be nothing spontaneous about this radical-led "drive" for the liberation of war-time, not "political," prisoners still in federal jails. This was a carefully organized "stunt" of the professional radical and perenial agitator. It had been aided and abetted by their sympathizers and helped along by the familiar pish-posh that always may be relied upon to well up in the breasts of sentimental and misguided souls. Had this move had anything genuine about it, had it been a "children's crusade" in fact as in name, they would have had a kindly and sympathetic hearing, for the President is the most kindly and sympathetic of men. He knows, however, whose hands led the childrento Washington and why they were led. They were brought to the White House by the wrong people, dragged there to make a radical holiday. The Kate Richards O'Hares have overreached themselves and made a bad cause worse. The politics they are playing is a sinister kind and has been recognized for exactly what it is. The administration has not been fooled by the higher-ups wdio are using these helpless children for their own ends, and the nation should not be misled by the "sob-stug" they have engineered. Philadelphia Ledger. SIMMONS THE FREE TRADER Senator Simmons announces that he will lead the Democratic side of the Senate against the Republican protective tariff.

Yet according to a Washington correspondent of the New York Tribune, of April 15th, Germany is now shipping gold-filled watches, 4 jewel, carrying a 20-year guarantee and selling them at 7 cents, wholesale, duty paid. To prove this, the correspondent says Assistant Secretary of the Treasury, Elmer Dover, showed a letter fnom the collector of the port of New York giving the facts. Mk Dover also showed a ladies wrist watch with one more jewel, with a black ribbon band and a gold filled clasp for the arm, at a total cost of $1.73, delivered in New-York. German Thermos bottles that sell for $4 can be bought at whole sale for 75 cents. Safety razors, with 6 blades, for 18 cents, etc. As a result of these watch shipments, one of the largest watch manufacturers in America had gone out of business. The above is but a sample.

As the Seydlitz, of the North German Lloyd steamed up the Hudson, she listed to larboard because 255 of her 256 cabin passengers wanted to get a good Vok at the Leviathan. The one passenger who was indifferent was a German-American from Phila-delphio, who claimed he had seen her before. Some of the new arrivals who had never laid eyes on the Leviathan could not be convinced that it was a vessel of any kind or name, declaring that no ship could be that big. One thrifty soul exclaimed: "And just think I am told the Americans have paid $5,000 a day for the upkeep of der alte kasten (the old box) !" New York Evening Post. "GOD'S CRUCIBLE" One of the most interesting scenes in "God's Crucible," the pieturizatipn of Ralph Connor's novel, "The Foreigner," which is released beneath the Hodkinson banner, takes place in . a cave where the hero admirably played by Gaston Glass discovers coal and thereby attains to the financial independence which makes it possible for him to sue for the hand of the beautiful Gladys Coburn. This scene is exactly as the author described it when he wrote the story and is an absolutely true version of the exact way in which coal was discovered in the. fampus anthracite mines in Canada. When the scene was being filmed, in fact when all the mine scenes were being filmed, the officials of the com pany who were desirous of helping to the limit of their powers, showed their anxiety to co-operate by declaring a half holiday in the mine so that Director MacRae and his company of players could work unhindered. They went even further by offering1! tbe services of the miners employed who entered into the spirit of the thing so admirably that the scenes in "God's Crucible" which show the coal mine in full blast are marvels of technical perfection. "God's Crucible" has been booked by Manager Ferguson at the Royal Theatre for Tuesday. "NO WOMAN KNOWS" A picture without a fight will be shown at the Royal Theatre on Wednesday and Thursday. Yet it is a screen story that today is thundering across the country as one of tne most terrific dramas of ordinary life ever filmed. The epochal production is "No Woman Knows," Universalis screen version of "Fanny Herself," Edna Ferber's magazine story that thrilled thousands of readers of the popular magazine in which it appeared. It was produced at Universal City and around the Great Lakes under the direction of Tod Browning .director of many of Priscilla Dean's big universal successes, such as "The Virgin of Stamboul" and "Outside the Law." Mabel Julienne Scott, who has placed herself amonpi the foremost American actresses by her admirable work in such successes as "Behold My Wife," "The Barrier" and "The Sea Wolf," plays the name role of "Fanny Herself." Opposite the talented young star will be seen Earle Schenck and Stuart Holmes. The story concerns a young girl who takes up the burden that killed her mother; the burden of providing for a brother who is supposed to be a genius. How she meets temptation, withstands it and finds eventual happiness, occupies the screen with one of its sincerest and strongest narratives. Local playgoers will be additionally interested in the supporting cast. It in eludes many players whose work is popular here, among them Earle Schenck, E. A. Warren, Max Davidson, Richard Cummings, Grace Marvin, Snitz Edwards, Joseph Swickard, Danny Hoy, Stuart Holmes and John Davidson. "BOYS WILL BE BOYS" Will Rogiers often sets his entire company to laughing1 by his humorous sayingis. Recently in making "Boys Will Be Boys," which comes to the Royal Theatre Friday, the star, as "Peep O'Day," was left several thousand pounds through a legacy. The scene was where Ed Kimball (father of Clara Kimball Young), playing the Judge, tells "Peep" of his inheritance. "Pounds of what?" asked Rogers. "Why pounds of money," replied Kimball. "Gosh Say, I guess even Goldwyn himself couldn't carry away that many pounds of money, could he?" returned the irrepressible star.

JAKE WAS SEVEN CENTS OUT Satisfied If It Wat All Right, But th Situation Did Not Exactly Please Him. Thy neighbors said that Jake Newton was strictly honest but "pretty snug." One morning as he was having his sheep sheared he found that one of them was missing. "It must have jumped the fence and gone into Leslie's lot," he said to himself and immediately walked over to Leslie French's pasture, picked out a sheep that resembled him own and, after a tussle, got It home and had it sheared. A few days later Jake discovered his missing sheep dead in his pasture. He lost no time in seeking his neighbor. With profuse apologies he returned the sheep and the fleece and explained the whole affair. "Oh, that's all right, Jake," Leslie replied. "Don't let it trouble you a bit." "You're sure It's all right?" Jake asked anxiously. "Sure, sure, Jake. Anyone is likely to make a mistake." Jake drew himself up. "Well, it ought to be all right. I had to pay seven cents to have that sheep sheared." Youth's Companion. Artist Works With Wood. In the Vosges mountains there lives an artist named Spindler, who produces the most entrancing compositions not in paint, but In wood alone. First he makes the sketch, and then with infinite patience and care he cuts the veneer and glues it to a backing and then welds it all in a press. Since Mr. Spindler never uses anything except wood In its natural color, he has to know a great deal about trees. In his workroom he has pieces of every kind of wood found In Europe and many pieces from other countries. He pictures clouds, rain, and everything that an artist can picture with paints. Some of his veneer takes hira hours of study and fitting, and some of It Is as fine as a hair. Mr. Spindler has wood of every shade of yellow, red, brown, black and white. He has almost all the shades of green also, but he finds the blues hard to get. Columbus Dispatch. By Charles Sughroe Wnctrn Nwwi Uw two Ellis-Fowler IS HONORED BY FRANCE Miss Anne 11.

Has Snake as Pal in His Prison Cell Uniontown, 1'a. When George Schley was arrested on a charge of disorderly conduct he managed to sneak a snake into the police station, though he was searched before being locked up. Within a few minutes after the iron doors clanged behind him shrieks rent the air and the desk sergeant and other officers found a half-dozen other prisoners climbing up the sides of their cells, while the snake wiggled around on the floor. At first the prisoners believed the snake to be a vision created by moonshine whisky. George was compelled to take the snake to bed with him and keep it in close confinement until the expiration of his sentence. tt" The name "London" is a combina tion of the two Celtic wprds, "lyn," meaning1 "lake," and "dun," a fort.
