NATRONA COUNTY TRIBUNE WYOMING News of the Week ARMS TAKEN FROM MINERS AND' OPERATORS PAS PER .... WYOMING COMFORT AND INSPIRATION. There are very, very few persons In all this wide world who do not need "comfort and Inspiration" at different periods of their lives. Just as tb young organist, alone In his blindness, groped in bis uncertain way for en couragcment which no one thought of giving him, so, too, we who la bor In our temporal blindness not only hope for, but really need the kindly word of cheer to help ui through the burdens of our days, sayi the Charleston News and Courier The men who administer large af fairs, the men who are vitally con cerned with the shaping of public Issues and the men who bold posl tlons of high trust need encourage ment throughout all their lives, and It Is the word of encouragement spok en at Just the right time, when per haps a weighty decision bangs In the balance, or a new responsibility Is tc be undertaken, which helps more than anything else could If the men who control In large affairs require pralsf and encouragement how much more do the men who work under them long for tbe word of approbation. The earnest man, the man who takes an active Interest In his task and can see beyond the dollars and cents for which be works, cannot be expected to la bor ' Indefinitely without knowing whether his labors are appreciated or not It Is argued, of course, that the man who does not give satisfaction does not, naturally, retain his posl' tlon, but to many finely tempered na tures tbe fact of giving satisfaction Is ' not everything. Appreciation means much to them and when rightly ex pressed goes a long way toward en couraging their best efforts! r According to the Scientific American of recent Issue, a method of economizing electrical energy employed for domestic heating or cooking Is to receive the energy continuously at a low rate In a resistance apparatus which transforms It Into heat and then stores tbe beat for use as needed. In a new electric cooking apparatus operating In this way the heating unit, consuming 600 watts total or 12,000 watt hours per day of twenty-four hours, serves to keep a mass of cast Iron hot enough to cook food ' In or dlnary utensils placed In contact with It The cast Iron block Is thermally Insulated by being Inclosed In a surrounding wall of lampblack or powdered silica, and a movable block Is arranged to be raised above the main mass, so as to expose Its upper surface when cooking Is to be done. Tbe small current consumption, less than that of an electric flatlron, enables the device to be operated on tho ordinary electric light wiring of the ouse. , The dangers of submarine navigation, In the present stage of Its development, are greater than those of the aeroplane. In an aeroplane accident the deaths are limited to one or two, but when a submarine boat goes down and falls to come up, the calamity usually carries off a dozen or more human beings at a time. There were 15 men on the British submarine B I, which was struck by tbe Hamburg' American liner Amerlka In a fog off Dover, and only one of them came up. This Is the sixth disaster to British submarines, and In each of the previous disasters the death roll ranged from 11 to 15 A western railroad will order that discharges may be the result of domestic troubles among the employes, arguing that such troubles cause a worry strain and often loss of neces aary sleep. From now on eery employe who wants to keep his Job must bave a happy home. Even the mil lennlum seems possible In view of this mandatory domestic happiness , The employes, however, may delicately suggest that a perceptible Increase In pay may go far toward promoting this desirable happy peace of mind. An Italian Judge has been called upon to decide whether poker Is scientific or a game of chance. If be has t family to support we hope he will sot play for the purpose of gaining the Information he will need In de-siding. A Los Angeles woman says the secret of managing a husband Is not to bombard him with questions when he comes home late. No. Stick to rolling pins, or dishes. - It Is true that the theater today In Its more serious manifestations Is nearer to every-day life than ever, for realism has developed in It, says Judge. But too much of It effort Is frothy, and thus of little ethical force, and too much is also sheer vulgarity. A San Francisco woman was granted a divorce because her husband tore op ber valuable hats. , Why didn't she apply for a separation 'on allegations that be was insane T Government scientist are perplexed to decide whether a decomposed egg la a rotten one. Why not get the opinion of an amateur Hamlet? Oysters are now to be electrocuted to stop danger of typhoid. The hu mane part of the public will be shocked to death at tbe suggestion. It ocean liners keep up the habit of crippling warships It might be well to enlist them in the navies. VuHl.rn NuwKpuper I'nt'-in Ntnvi tj-ivk'A, DAT1CS holt ONl(i EVI5SITS.

Commander of Steamer Illinois Tells How He Arrived Day Ahead of , Schedule, and Is Shanghaied to Land Job. New York.-JIt Is perfectly possible to "shanghai" a seaman and make htm work on the land, although the possibilities appear never to have occurred to writers of sea stories. Anyway, it not only could happen, but It did happen, and Capt. Harry Harriman, postmaster, and most prominent business man in Massapequa, Long Island, is the man to whom It happened. Captain Harriman followed the sea for over 40 years, rising from apprentice to the position of captain of one of the Red Star Line steamers. One day be came to Massapequa to visit bl3 brother-in-law, who was employed by a real eststte company here. While on his visit he got into conversation with the owner of the little store and poetofflce, near the railroad station. The storekeeper and post master expressed himself as being dissatisfied with the place, au,d yearned for the coming of some one who would purchase the store. In a spirit of fun the captain offered him an ab surdly low price for the store and the offer was accepted. - Not willing to back out of his bar gain, the captain closed the deal then and there and decided to Install his wife as storekeeper and postmistress. Ho found that Massaperjua's rapid growth provided more work than his wife could attend to, so. with a leave of absence from the steamboat line, he Is still at his little Massapequa store, selling postage stamps and potatoes, and occasionally , bustling a bag of mail upon a train. The captain Is going back to his first love, the sea, but he says, when be brings to mind some of bis amusing experiences as postmaster, be decides that work as postmaster in a Long Island village is almost as exciting as anyone could wish for. But, for all that, when Captain Har riman tells how be came to take up bis work in Massapequa, he solemnlj insists that he was shanghaied Into the Job of being postmaster. Captain Harriman, whose last com mand was on the Illinois, the Red Star Line steamer which piles between Philadelphia and Antwerp, was a personal friend of Captain Smith of 'be Ill-fated Titanic. On the day the Titanic sank, Captain Harriman and Captain Rogers, late of the steamship Frelssman, were planning a vacation in Maine on which Captain Smith was expected to accompany them. The Illinois, anyone, can see, Is the ship of ships in the eyes of the post master-captain. That's the ship that beat tbe Phila- delphia-Antwerp record," he said, with a grin and a chuckle, "but tbe company never seemed to approve of the way we beat It It was the eighty-fourth trip of the boat, and the weather- was glorious you wouldn't find more favorable conditions for a trip in a lifetime. When I took my observations the second or third day, I found that we were about 18 hours ahead of the schedule. I called up the engineer and he said that no ex tra amount of coal had been burned. and we decided If we didn't have to use any extra coal, to beat the recordIf we could. Anyway, we were due In Philadel phia on Monday and we steamed In on Sunday, 24 hours ahead of sched ule, I bad a thousand emigrants on board and no arrangements had been made to receive them before Monday oh, we threw things Into a merry mess. At I came Into the dock, I called ont to Captain Fuller, our ma rine superintendent: Where shall I go with this boatf 'You can go to hades with ber,' he yelled back. 'What business bave you got In here today T When I reported at the 'offices of the company, they called me down for bringing the boat In so far ahead of time, but I showed them my orders to i i.i. .11 j . , pruceeu wuu an uubbiuib aiapatca, although they didn't seem to want orders carried out so literally.'

Babylon to register, and afterward walked back, a distance of four miles. - The remarkable pair were the center of attraction at the registering place. They appeared to be in rugged health and mentally alert. When handed the blanks for enrollment they smiled at each other and placed a cross beneath the fountain emblem of the Prohibition party. Then, with a cheery good afternoon to the assemblage, they -walked briskly away. For seventy yearB the twins have registered and voted together, seldom missing a year. Both bave been farmers all yielr lives. EX-THIEF TURNS PREACHER Becomes a Mission Worker After 22 Years In Jails Says It Is Never Too Late. , Washington.

Le Matin Is at present engaged in gathering together one of its periodical symposiums on burning questions of the day. The question that everybody is Just now trying to answer Is "Are Women Understood?" Every day two or more columns of the papers are filled with the answers, from which the following selections have been made: According to you a man who, seeing women aa they are, lets them believe he sees them as they would like to be. According to us simply - a man who loves them. "A man who understands a woman is he wbo considers ber not as an Inferior, but aB his equal, at the. same time recognizing in her certain superiorities of tact, delicacy, devotion and courage, without proudly showing his consciousness of his own personal superiority in physical and intellectual power." "The man who understands women Is one who thinks It charming that we should be coquettish, fond of dainties, money and flirting, and who thinks and tells ns that all our caprices are adorable." "Young men have gifts to fascinate women, but they do not understand them. The man who does is he who no longer tells them untruths, having nothing more to hope or expect from them." "Such a phenomenon as a man who understands women does not exist It would be preferable to be set to square the circle than to understand a woman." A woman signing herself "One Who Is Not Proud of Being a Woman" writes: "Tbe man wbo fancies he under- atlon Rosenski gave when telling the marriage license clerks why be did not use the license: Rosenski was once married, but his wife died in 1910, leaving five children to care for. While at work one day a friend told blm of a widow who was about to b deported by the United States immigration officers on account of not being able to support herself. Rosenski decided to marry ber to keep her from being deported and also to bave a mother tor his five children. PHOTO W UNOUWXID 0.

"I came to pay you your money, $5; that all I owe you, my old friend." Mr. Farrell. who had quite forgotten that the Indian was Indebted to him, recalled the Incident and, taking down bis books, found the entry of tbe loan.
