M ^••MM&VIV mm Admiral Oiano, His Jhfflgllter'9 Father-ln-Law, Pfaked to Succeed Duce In Case of Death. By WILLIAM BIRD t8p«et»l C»bl« to Altoons Mirror and N. V. Sun.) , June 2.—After Bonito Mns- t'a recent stumping tour, the eyes Of th« world are focussed on Italy and h«f extraordinary chief, who ranks -With Nikolai Lenin as the foremost • pollUcal genius of the generation. *f»o dispatches of unusual interest concerning Italy's future .reached here ttxJay, one from. the New York Sun foreign service's Rome correspondent. Augustine Beaumont, and the other from a man who recently left Italy after a ten-year's residence there, during which he was well placed to ob- serte the evolution of the fascist government and obtain information in regard to its future intentions. Beaumont's dispatch reveals that the fascist general council has selected Rear Admiral Costanzo Ciano, minister of communications, and father- Iri-law of Edda Mussolini, as the flrst choice to succeed 11 duce in case of death or disability. The title "head of the government and prime minister" is an extra-constitutional one created by Mussolini himself and not under parliamentary control. The appointment is made by the king and the incumbent is responsible to the king alone. It has now been disclosed that the fascist grand council has drawn up a list, headed by Admiral Ciano, and this list will be submitted to the king •when Mussolini's office becomes vacant. The king, theoretically, may choose whom he likes from the list, but undoubtedly he would feel constrained to follow the council's order of preference. Admiral Ciano is now 54 years of \ age and has had a distinguished naval career. He was among the first to join the fascist movement in 1921, becoming a close friend and collaborator of Mussolini. He has been holding office constantly since the fascists seized power. The marriage of young Ciano to Edda has further cemented ".this intimate relationship. Of Ciano, Beaumont writes, "he is of a taciturn, unobtrusive disposition and few ever dreamed he would be chosen «.o succeed the duce. Tall, dark and aflable, he is a fine type of brave naval officers and, while lack- Ing Mussolini's vivacity and showy qualities, is nevertheless an able and experienced leader. He would form a considerable contrast to Mussolini." The second correspondent, who prefers to remain anonymous, also by an odd coincidence discusses the succession question. This question must decidedly pervade the Italian air. While not possessing Beaumont's information concerning the fascist council decision, this correspondent indicates as a possible successor Ciano's son, Edda's husband. Mussolini's own sons, he points out, possess little of •their father's aptitude in politics. While Edda's intellectual and temperamental likeness to the duce is frequently mentioned.,Obviously, whether Ciano, father or son, succeeds il duce, may depend much on when Mussolini retires from the scene. If in the near future, the father would seem the likelier choice. lit both cases, however, there is the Indication that Mussolini's thoughts are running toward founding a family dynasty, with the succession passing through Edda to his eventual grandchildren. This second correspondent also envisages the possibility that the fascist regime may come to an abrupt end. Two factors, he says, may determine this: ' First, a war with France—which he adds every Italian wants—with Italy coming out the loser; and second, the difficulty of selecting Mussolini's successor. The Italians look forward to a war with France in the hope of annexing Nice, Savoy, Tunis and possibly Algeria. But should war result in defeat, It can be assumed that a political upheaval would follow, as it did in Germany, Austria-Hungary, Russia 'and Turkey after losing wars were fought. The probable result would be that the fascist regime would collapse. The idea is general in the United State* that all Italians are fascists, but one who has lived a long time in Italy, becoming closely acquainted •with the people, can assert that while all pay Mussolini lip service, many are against him. Free press, free speech and even free thought do not exist in Italy. During Mussolini's recent visit to Milan, £he fascist leaders proudly boasted that all known anti-fascists were imprisoned. Of course, If Italy won the war things would be quite different. It is not difficult to predict that Mussolini ••would instantly be proclaimed emperor of the "Italian empire." These events are possibly imminent, possibly in the remote future, or may never come to pass. Only one thing Is certain, namely, that sooner or later Mussolini himself must quit the scene.

K. R. NEFK. In Peru, although many battles remained to bo fought, this brief and treacherous affair rpnlly settled the problem. The subjects of the Inca. ac- customd to the absolute dictatorship of their chief, were helpless without his commands. He was their god and now the Spaniards held him in their power, they lost faith. In desperation Atahnalpa promised to fill his prison chambers with bars of silver; the Spaniards agreed: the natives brought the silver and Plzarro double crossed the Incn, not releasing him but executing him. The original sentence was "burning at the stake." but when Atnnalpa accepted Christianity they commuted it to strangulation. There' after the leaderless Incas fell readily subject to Fizarro's avarice and lust. It was a mere formality thereafter, the march to the Inca capital of Curco and despooliation of the temples, yet in these altitudes, where exertion Is most trying to those uninured, the very marcher of the Spaniards command respect, despite its villainy, and ranks as one of the most audacious and courageous in history. Hin forces at the time of the conquest—of an empire that counted its warriors as over a million —consisted of 180 men, sixty-seven of them mounted. The sceptre descended from father to son, always through marriage to a sister. He who held it was considered the direct descendant of the Sun God and as such, was the source of all laws and justice. He lived in the greatest of pomp and splendor, dressed in the finest of skins, enjoyed as his concubines all the handsomest ladies of the realm a" 1 owned all the gold in Peru. There was a carefully graded nobility of dukes and princes of lesser ranks based mostly on the Inca blood, but with positions for the heads of con-. quered tribes that made such heads loyal and patriotic. Chile.—Chile is the longest country on earth in proportion to its width. Beginning at Cape Horn, it stretches its way northward like a snake along the western slopes of the Andes for a distance of 2,700 miles, a distance from Boston to the Mormon tabernacle, or beginning at Cleveland and go to New York it would extend to Panama. Area.—The country averages from 100 to 150 miles in width and it has, all told, nearly 300,000 square miles. That means that Chile is nearly twice as large as California, and six times as large as Pennsylvania, and more than three times as 'large as England, Scotland and Wales. It has a great diversity of climates and resources. In the northern part rain never falls, at Santiago, in the great central valley, there is rain thirty-one days out of 365. while at Vlldivia, in the southern part of that valley, it rains half the days of the year. A little further south the rain is even more abundant and there are localities where the people say it rains thirteen months in the year. This being the case, the northern part of the land is a desert; the central part is a rich farming country, with vast orchards and vineyards and great haciendas, many of which are watered by irrigation. The southern part has lands that grow wheat and oats on. broad fields fed by generous rainfall. This region has also enormous areas of forest. One-quarter of Chile is wooded and they have been cutting down the trees and burning them in order to make farms, as we foolishly did in the past. The lands of the Straits of Magellan and the Archipelago of Tierra del Fuego are very interesting. They forrri the toil of the republic. The climate is that of Washington. The sheep are fed out of doors all the year around and hundreds of millions of pounds of wool are exported. from the strait each year. There 1 are single companies owning more than 1,000,000 sheep. Southernmost Chile,'made up of the submerged ranges of the Andes, some of which are covered with glaciers, has a light fall of snow in the winter, but it seldom lies long and the sheep grub through it for the grass beneath. All htis is in striking contrast with northern Chile. That part of the republic would have almost tropical heat were it not that its climate is tempered by the cold Humbolt current to such an extent that white men can live anywhere near the coast. There are thriv- ni gtowns at the ports that lie at the end of each little valley watered by the snows of the Andes and there are cities at the points where nitrate and minerals are shipped to the United States and Europe. Northern Chile is mainly desert, which yields more dollars than the valleys, but compares favorably with the most fertile parts of the earth in the value of its resources, possibly greater than the lands of the nitrates, Nile, the Euphrates or the Ganges. They are as barren as the Sahara. It has not a plant, a tree, blade of grass or anything green, a land upon which rain never falls, and where one has often to go a hundred miles for a drink of water, a land of rocks, stones and sand, and salty particles that reflect the rays of the tropical sun, inflaming the eyes. It contains the great nitrate belt that runs through the desert and along the west coast from below Antofagasta to the Peruvian boundary. For several generations these fields have made Chile richer than any other South American country, and during the World war the demands for nitrate so increased that the exports amounted to about 545 to each person in the Chilean republic. These rich deposits not only pay 20 per cent of all government expenses, but yield fortunes to those who operate them. Antofogasta is one of the chief nitrate ports. From it a syndicate known as the Nitrate Agencies Limited exports in the neighborhood of a billion pounds a year. Its ships are constantly loading at the nitrate ports and sailing for the United States, Europe or far off Japan. The syndicate has considerable holdings but is under American management and its methods are entirely American. The largest owners are W. R. Grace & Co. of New York and London, a h'rm that has nitrate deposits throughout the desert. In addition there arc seventy other companies engaged in the business. Nitrate of soda is one of the richest fertilizers and has double the crops of many an American farm. The United States, which takes about one-half of the total production, has been buying upwards of 200,000,000 pounds a month, and among other large consumers arc Germany, France, Great Britain, Holland and Belgium, and also Japan.

BERT ACKERMAN NAMED TO STATE AGENT'S JOB is in this purified state that it goes to market in 200 pound bags. The richest fields lie at an altitude several thousand feet above sea level and from twenty to 100 miles back from the coast. The belt is seldom more than ten miles in width. Much of it ia" found in pockets, although one field covers an area of more than 100 square miles. Others are confined to a few hundred acres and the purity varies as much as their size. As a rule, nitrate is close to the surface, cropping out here and there and seldom extending for more than twenty feet below the surface of the desert. There are many theories of the origin of the deposits but so far none satisfactory and yet the scientists have little better to offer. At any rate, the nitrates are here, preserved by the dryness of the desert, which has no moisture to leech them out. The rock in some places is white, others yellow, gray, lemon color or green. The method of getting it out is to bore a hole a foot in diameter through the layers of sand and rock and blow it out. The rocks are broken into lumps a size that can be loaded on cars and taken to the mills, reduced and regned ready for market. It is seldom found pure in nature. The best deposits contain 40 to 60 per cent. The larws require that the • salts exported must be at least 95 per cent pure. The workmen come from outside and are paid on an average $2 per day,' boys less than a dollar. There are over 40,000 men employed. The companies have to supply houses, heat, light and water for the men, which cost is deducted from their wages. Companies have their own stores and pay wages in blanks, size of poker chips, instead of money. The value is marked on it and can be used in any company store. Stores are run at a profit and prices are high. Flour, $4 for 100 pounds, eggs 15 cents apiece, all cuts of meat 50 cents a pound, beans $6 per bushel, coal oil $1.20 a gallon, and is brought from England and Australia. All the nitrate fields orignally belonged to the government, taking its share of revenue through the duty charged upon every bag exported. They provide from two-thirds to four-fifths of public expense. The country is also rich in copper. New copper and iron mines are being discovered and large deposits are known. The Guggenheim copper properties are famous throughout the world, and the iron deposits belonging to the Bethlehem Steel company are the most valuable in the country. (To Be Continued) GYPSY.

Sermon to Graduates. Rev. Kaebriick's sermon follows: "It Is no accident, thai we call the last da.y In school 'commencement day.' It is intended that now things of a more serious nature are to be undertaken by the seniors who lay aside their caps and gowns. Some of you will be going to college, while some of you soon will be going out to face responsibilities more serious than those affiliated with attending high school. The world is a great deal larger than a school yard or campus and ever so much. more interesting. The school at Its best is but a preparation for. life rather than life itself. The showing you will make depends largely upon what you take with you. I want to speak to you at this baccalaureate service on 'The School of Life.' "We are all students in this school of life. We do not know when we entered, this school but we entered it at birth. It begins with life. Some of the courses are elective; most of them are compulsory. The tuition runs very high at times, but it always must be paid. There is no vacation, no com- mencement.in this school. Death ends the term here, and marks the graduation into either a higher or lower class. "The failures in this school arise largely from a lack in possessing certain prime factors in meeting the compulsory courses. Howard Bement of the Hill school in hie little book says that they are divided into three parts —'stamina, scholarship, and sympathy.' We are all acquainted with the three R's; here we have our three !. Here are the same three factors listed in a letter by an old teacher to a young student 'For God hath not given us the spirit of fear but of power and of love and of a sound mind.' It all amounts to the same thing. Stamina is power, scholarship develops a sound mind, and sympathy springs from love—love for God as the sum of all that is good and love for men. Let me put these three prime factors at the center of our thinking about the school of life. 'First, Stamina. Stamina is something which every person craves. It has a physical basis, yet it is something more than bulk. You cannot measure it off in feet and inches or weigh it on the scales. Forceful personality comes oftentimes done up in small packages. "Now this sense of power can be cultivated and developed like any other live thing. It grows when conditions are right. It may add cubits to its stature in the course of four years in a surprising manner. Theodore Roosevelt became one of the most forceful men of his generation, yet he was a puny child. Yet he became a man ofVpower by making a business of it as soon as he was old enough to think. He may have had unusual capacity for growth, I think that he had, but his stamina, physical and intellectual and moral, came by his insistent and persistent use of the right means. He did not try to live by aread and games alone, he lived by all the great words which proceed out of the mind of God, food, clothing, exercise, naturally, and also by faith, hope, love, courage, aspiration, high resolve! By these men live and grow n power. "The person of stamina as a rule forms the habit of concentration early in life. He does not scatter his energies. He focuses his efforts in such a way that wherever he is, he is all there. Of course it is easier naturally to lounge through life, but no one ever thinks of looking for stamina in loungers or loafers, young men and women who follow the line of least resistance. It is no child's play to live a real life and to do real work in the school of life. 'I am urging the importance of all this because in the final examination, achievement in high grades in' the school of life is largely a question of stamina. The Duke of Wellington, who won the day at Waterloo, used to say that British soldiers were no braver than French soldiers, but they were brave five minutes longer—and that meant victory. 'Five minutes longer'; How often that tells the story ! "Stamina comes only as you live clean lives, eat good food, enough but not too much of it, drink that which slakes rather than creates thirst, breathe your full share of the outdoor air of which there is enough for everybody and to spare, sleep a sufficient number of hours, some of them before midnight, and exercise your abilities in some useful occupation. That is the route by which stamina arrives. And it is a part of every student's course in the school of life to gain his full share of it because it lies at the basis of so much that is best. "In the second place, the sound mind, which is one of the marks of scholarship! The sound mind rings true every time—it is not cracked or warped or lopsided. It does not go to pieces in the face of difficulty; it holds together and overcomes difficulties. It knows always what it is talking about. It has a keen sense of fact and real capacity for drawing conclusions from those facts which will be found valid. What a splendid asset for any life!

Knowledge is power only when It becomes the natural furnishing of ft sound mind bent upon useful achievement. The sound Wind has depth and strength of conviction and masterful purpose; it has a spinal column of stiffness and staunchness, not made of putty and plastic to every social pressure or touch, blown about by every wind of popular opinion or personal desire. The sound mind has skill In mental endeavor and accomplishment; it means always insight, discrimination, productiveness. "Now that fine quality, like all the others, can be cultivated and developed. It grows by the right use of right means. It sometimes adds cubits to its stature in less than four years. In one of the theological seminaries that I attend, all'the courses were built about the ideal acquisition Of all knowledge. Let me pass them on to you. There are flve steps,, namely—Observe exactly, Describe correctly, Compare justly, Express cogently, 6bey implicitly. Or stating them In just a little different manner ,in the words of the late Dr. Eliot, ex-president of Harvard, analyze—synthesize—organize—generalize, and may I add the fifth, utilize. Let any person form the habit In the school of life of observing exactly, of describing correctly what he sees and hears; of comparing Justly, not some loose approximation of It; of expressing cogently, not in a way that is silly and far-fetched let him obey implicitly,or utilize the truths and conclusions, I say let any person do that and keep orf doing it day after day, week after week—and he will be headed for a sound mind as surely as the magnetic needle of. a compass points to the pole. " 'Thou shall love the Lord thy God with all thy heart' in the desires you cherish, and 'with all thy mind' in the thoughts you think. Jesus made' that duty of thinking straight a part of the flrst and great commandment. You are in the school of life to learn the joy of intellectual fellowship with your Maker by thinking His thoughts after Him, and by keeping step with Him and His wise purposes for the race. In this intricate social order of ours, in the demands that the school of life makes upon you, the sound mind is imperative, if you are to gain the best that life has for you, if you are to make your just/contribution to the common welfare, and if you are to stand right with Him in the day of examination when you will receive your credits. "In the third place, Sympathy, the power to respond to the call of God and the needs of others. Some lighthearted, light-headed people seem to think that when we enter the realm of spiritual values, we enter a region of magic and hocus pocus. They know that in mathematics two and two make four every time; but they think that in morals two and two will make flve or even flfty with a little Judicious coaxing and a few fervent gestures. They have an idea that a young person may ignore moral values for years, wallowing in the mire of evil indulgence, and then by some spasm of feeling become instantly as fine and as true as if he had never spent those years In the far country. "I wonder-where they got that notion ! It is not here in the Bible, this book is filled with sound sense. I have rubbed against all sorts and conditions of men and they all said that men reap as they sow, that the debits and credits for right living are as definite and exact as the trial balance of a great national bank. The law of compensation never overlooks a single thing. The impulses we cherish soon become habits; habits speedily harden into character; and character determines destiny. Two and two make four all the way up and all the way down. As a man thlnketh in his heart so he becomes—not in an hour, nor in a week, but throughout the «ntire school of life. And the only heart which is safe here or hereafter is a heart possessed by love for God and love for one's fellow beings. "Where a person maintains the sense of fellowship and cooperation with those unseen, spiritual forces which are eternal, his character develops steadily into the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ. 'I live,' this same teacher cried in one of his highest • moods, 'live, yet not I—Christ liveth in me!' I know of no one whose leadership I would sooner follow in that course of inquiry and hope than His. Jesus Christ is supreme, pre-eminent, unique as master in this school of life. My young friends you can safely trust your all with Him. Jesus Christ brought life and immortality to light by what He was and is, by what He said, by what He did, and by what He is doing in the glad experiences of millions of people who have learned though Him to live by the power of an endless life. Howard Bement was right; the apostle Paul was right. The school of life demands stamina, scholarship, sympathy. To achieve one must have power, love and a sound mind.
