Tor years he worked as a humble clerk Then came the Civil War, and Grant tried to come back. But his record v\as against him, Genera] Halleck, commander of. the Army of the West disliked htm, end the public disclaimed htm. i Gradually, however, Grant's ge- tnus (ought its way through lo recognition. President Lincoln believed in him, and his popularity waxed and, waned, as he won and lost battles.'; Victories at Ft. Donelson. then Vicksburg and Chatr tanoogs heaped honors upon hjm until Lincoln put him in supreme command o( the Union army When finally he laced General Lee, victory came at last, and great public acclaim, • The honor thrust upon him ogain turned sour, (or during his presidency came the horrors or reconstruction, Black Friday, the Credit,MObiller exposures and the Whisky Ring scandals, which broke his fighting spirit. He sought refuge by travel, and returned penniless and Shunned.' His picture appears between those of Sherman and Sheridan on the new three-cent army etamp. s i Famify .Moves on''Camels SYDNEY (UP) — Housekeeping for. a family whose possessions are normally packed on the backs of two camels is Ihe lot of Mrs, Richard Jones, who has jiibt arrived here with her husband and 18- mo'nth-bld baby after n trek of 1 500 miles.

There are plenty of fishing •{rounds In this neighborhood for •my type of sail water fishermen.

But the supreme thrill In these waters Is landing-a heavy deep water fish oil light tackle. A huge (leet of boats from Ihis city and olhcr.s nearby go forth every morning In quest of thorn. It's rare sjioi't. • ' First, let's take the saliash. We used lo drift with live bait for these fellows, but now we troll in the Ciutf Stream, from three to tight miles out, use medium weight tackle, nnd outriggers to hold the lino. Anglers Flew KKcs Years ago klle fishing was found successful in catching sailfish. A kllc was flown aboul 50 lo 75 feel behind the boat, on the : line .or which was>a clothespin. Th'c s nng- Icr's • line was attached to the tlolhes pin. • Resulting action of Ihls combination made the ball skip across Ihe water In the 'manner of a (lying fish, nnd the sails would strike viciously wilii Iheir sword. A strike would free the fisherman's line from the kite line, nnd he was then on his own. --•'•,!•" This .method had its drawbacks due to wind conditions, anil "led to development of the outrigger. This consists of two poles extending about 35 or 40 feet, In the hlr on an angle of 00 degrees. .Fishermen attach Ihcli- llnc.s to these outriggers with clothespins,' . and two baits lire Irolled at the same lime. .The boat is thus able -to travel In any direction. When a fisherman feels the ball struck, 'he releases about M feet of line, giving the fish thu impression he j- has • kilted i his prey' Tlie qiinrry 'then gobbles it. ' The light then begins. .,.' The'.first shock for the an°ltr almost pulls him' from his sent: After n long battle, depending on (he size i of flsh and tackle used, the guide grasps the Hsh by the bill and hoists him overboard —or. releases him on freeing the nook, i'he latter,method is a ges- :ure of .good ''sportsmanship.

Yet, during the Great War,' deaths from waterborne diseases were negligible, among (he A. E. F... The work of making this result possible was an epic in itself. Geologic surveys were made, wells were ring to depths that obviated all surface pollution; pipelines were .laid, liter stations established, and the water .sterilized, just as at home. During the final great Allied oll'ensives, tne lamous '"water• works regiment," the Twenty-sixth Engineers, followed the advance, repairing, testing and purifying the wells and springs of the re- conquered territory. There is comfort in knowing that even greater technical knowledge and resources than protect- 'ed the A. E. F. under such difficult conditions, protect us now in our own city. BLYTHEVILLE WATER CO.
