SUNDAY MORNING. SEos Snge XPRIi; IS, 1926. PART ml 19 TELLS PART OF MISSION IN HISTORY David Gray Recalls Debt Civilization of America , Owes to Padre Serra In a reoent chat about Kanta Barbara with guests from the East attending the Gulden Club convention, David Cray, art itron and rlvielst, pointed out the place Santa Barbara Mission plwys In historynot only .of California, but of America. "If It were not for the faith and endurance of Fray Junlpero erra. and hla followers soldiers and friars the map of America would look very different from what it does today. For if the colonization of California by Spain, through the missions, had not succeeded, Santa Barbara, with some other name, not bo musical probably, would belong to one or another of Spain's neighbors. And that's no guess. It's a fact. "But Fray Serra stuck to his Job and we have a string of his-torlo missions along the Coast, Santa Barbara the busiest of them because it has 140 years of continuous serii e to its credit, "And contrary to general opinion the mission was not merely a church a place of worship. "The missions and Santa Barbara led the way In many of the activities were the first agricultural schools in America. . They were the first to introduce Irrigation and the first to Introduce grains, fruity, flowers and trees into California. "And they were the first factories in the West manufacturing all the needs of the" mission and most of the necessities of the Presidio. "Moreover, they were the first social service clubs In America, because nowhere else in America were there organizations where the workers nhnred equally In the fruits of their labor and In their leisure. "These are ionw of the things Santa Biirbivra Mission pymbollzes and a few of the thousand reasons why the mission should be saved for the ages to come."

Advertisement Dancing girls have been the bane of Princes since Princes and girls existed, and now one of the premier cniefs of India may lose his throne on account of one -Munitaz the dancer. Who and what are these wnmn who flash across the pages of history and serve so prominent a part In me underworld of India? Whence do they come, in their silk attire and their Jewels? And the answer is strange and pathetic, and part of the curious racial development of the Aryan and of the position of his honorable women. So writes Lieut.-Oen. Sir George MacMunn, formerly quaxtermaster-sreneral in India. Whereas In Europe dancing Is a profession which any woman may adopt, in the EaHt it lies so low that none may do a dancing-girl reverence. The dancer and the courtesan come of - the outcast races, the conquered races of India, whom thousands of years ago the Aryans dispossessed and have kept In social servitude ever since. Women are born and brought up to these trades, and sometimes surplus infant daughters are sold Into them. In an eastern city. If someone will take you, perhaps In disguise. under the latticed windows and into the arched courts, you may And u, famous dancer holding her salon. Since in the East there is no social intercourse with women, men will frequent a dancer's salon for news and gossip. Half a dozen visitors may be smoking hugas prepared by the dance girls, while the lady of the nouse on ner aivan will be relatlmr the latest Jest or story from the markets. One of the girls may be singing a Persian love song, or In the court yard pipe and tabor may be playing a haunting, amorous air. If you are privileged to see a star troupe dance ybu may find it a very graceful performance. In an open arched court, the premiere danseuse will stand with her girls; two tomtom players and a couple of pipers squat in- a corner and commence their haunting, se ductive music. The leader, followed by the girls, will slowly Join in the dance, their bangles and armlets Jingling.- It may illustrate some eastern Story. A soldier In a frontier castle longing for the delights of the city, fiercely In love with some woman, some dancer of the town. His desires and feelings are ex plained and developed in song and rhythm. The story is all done for you by pipe and tabor, by the graceful, clever dancing and the maddening Jingle of the anklets, till the music oeases and the dancers glide away. Vancouver Province. BACILLI GOOD AND RAD A curious lawsuit has been decided in London. Litigants have often contended for. the possession Of . children or domestic animals: this seems to be the first battle to establish ownership in a bacillus. The plaintiff doctor .contended that a bacillus, which he had found and tamed wnd brought to heel before the World War, so that it has become an . important agent In the manufacture of high explosives, has been used by the defendant unlawfully for industrial purposes. The Judge has decided for the plaintiff. But the contest, aside from the question of proprietorship In an organism that- is only microscopically discernible, raises the whole question of the uses and values of bacilli. , Bacteria of certain kinds, feeding nitrogen to plants, help cereals, fruits and flowers to grow. Bacteria are needful to cheese and impart characteristic flavors to certain sorts of American and Danish butters. Oxidizing bacteria, are essential to vinegar and other products. When we think of the mischief done by bacteria, or bacilli, in the communication of disease, it is fair to the infinitesimal creatures to point out that at the same tlmo they have their beneficial uses: they are not utterly malignant and depraved. Philadelphia Ledger. . No Divorces In Swan Family A pair of swans make an Interesting attraction for a private lake or pond, says the U. S. department of agriculture, but warns us they should be bought In pairs. There Is no such thing as divorce in the swan family. They are slow to ehoos their mates, but once mated it is for life. Living on. a placid pond may have something to do with it. Cupper Weekly. Woman's City Cluh Mrs. A. J. Lawton, chairman of the legislative department of the Woman's City Club, announces a meeting of the study section of her department for tomorrow at 2:30 p.m. in studio "D" Friday Morning clubhouse. Subject: "Taxation relating to rural bond Issues, to the usual procedure In borrowing monies for public improvements, and suggestions for relieving the tax burden." TWICE AROUSED IRE OF MARK TWAIN Kilty Leary'g "A Lifetime With Mark Twain. Memories." written from her lips by Mary Lawton? is a book that no one can afford to miss. It gives an intimate view of one of the most picturesque per sonalltles that ever adorned this planet, and even a stranger would feel after reading It that he had lived in this household and knw I closely every member of the fam ily. The thing is amaxingly well done. Was there ever a more lova ble man? And yet he twice tried to have me arrested, and once set a price on my head, the only time I received that particular distinction. When I was a boy in Hartford, on every Fourth of Jifly I rose at midnight and, tagether with others, kept up an Infernal racket till ! in the evening, twenty-one consecu tive hours of undiluted buss. At about -3 a.m. on one of these holidays we were howling and yelling and shooting explosives near Mark Twain a house, when sudden ly a policeman appeared ' In the scene. The cry "Cheese it, the cop!" rang out against the starry sky. We dodged and ran; the minion of the law caught only one of us, to whom he explained that Mark Twain had telephone 1 know now with what' lyrical profanity to have us all arrested. But the merciful Irish policeman let his prisoner go, on the latter's promise to be responsible for no more noise in that vicinity. The other occasion was more serious. When I was 13 years old I owned a double-barreled muzzle-loading shotgun, with which I used to haunt the precincts of Hog River. One day. oh, ecstasy! I saw a flock of white ducks, which 1 thought were wild, whereas only the owner of them turned out to be. I blazed away with both barrels, and five of them swam no more. At that moment of nimrodical delight, as I was about to gather the trophies of the chase, a person appeared, who informed me that these were tame nrizo ducks, the property of Mark Twain, ana mat I naa better run for my life. After a moment s bewildered discomfiture T thought his advice sound. I fled. Next day the Hartford papers contained a paragraph by Mark Twain, announcing a substantial money reward for the apprehension of the miscreant who had slaughtered his valuable pet ducks. Of course I could have claimed the reward, but I didn't. For three months I never went near his house or the river, though my special pal, now the Hon. Frank W. Hubbard of Detroit, lived in that Immediate neighborhood. This is the only time a price was set on my head, and I was worth more to the authorities than I have ever been since. William Lyon Phelps In Scribner's Magazine. ELEPHANT PAINTED FOR CEREMONIES An elephant's toilet preparatory to a ceremonial function is a com plicated affair, according to a vis itor from liritain, who watched the process of making ready the Gaekwar of Baroda's elephants in India for the festivities connected with Lord Reading's visit. The painting of the face comes first, he says, and that operation is performed with care which would have done credit to Jeze bel. Two men chalk an outline of the design and apply the water-color paint with a speed and certainty of touch which can only have been attained with long practice. There were painted tigers which were so drawn up the sides of the face and head that the eye of the elephant on each side coincided with the tiger's eye, giving to the painted animal an extraordinary air of - vitality. Peacooks were painted In a slmU lar way on another animal, and on others, which were presumably of lesser importance in the elephantine world, the designs were formal geometrical affairs. Painters who work on canvas or paper can have little idea of the joy of working with a large brush on such a surface as is of-feved, for example, by an elephant's ear. The dressing-room contains a vast variety of howdahs in gold and silver and Ivory and wood. The state elephant must wear, ,al-sof earrings and collars, and decorations on his forehead, and bracoleta and anklets. Ha is, in fact, adorned until there Is not much left to be seen of the original animal. An elephant's diet is almost as intricate aa his toilet. He likes his half-pound of salt every day, in addition to large quantities of black pepper and oil. These facts are duly recorded on the menu card which hangs In each stall of the stables. Vancouver Province. AD.VITED SC IUITl'RK An old colored preacher owned a mule, one with an efficient pair of heels and at uncomnnwily raucous voice. "One Sunday morning the mule with his braying so disturbed the preacher that he exclaimed. "Am dere one among you all who knows how to keep dat mule quiet?" "Pahson," replied a 'man, "if you all will jes' tie a atone to dat mule's tail he sho' will keep quiet." ' "Bredden and slstern." responded the preacher, "let him who Is wltdout sin tie de first stone. Boston Transcript.

MACHINE INVENTED TO MEASURE ATOMS Blindness no longer threatens the scientist who seeks to record the flight of atoms, since the Invention at the University of Cali fornia of a new machine by Prof. A. R. Olsen. Under the supervision of Prof. A. R. Olsen of the chemistry department, G. F. Nelson, a well-known mechanic of this State, has constructed a new Instrument, which not only gives a permanent record without possible error, but eliminates the great physical strain which formerly caused ill-health and often loss of eyesight. Another striking feature of thia machine is the great saving of time it makes possible. Formerly the observer spent forty-eight hours at one sitting, making a reading every thirty seconds through a telescope. Now the data come out entirely plotted after two hours. The instrument consists of a small lamp and mirror from which the light is reflected, coming to a focus on the camera. In this way it is possible to determine the voltage and current in vacuum tubes and to determine the structure of atoms. The machine also photographs results of critical potentials and the energy necessary to move electrons to various positions In atoms or molecules.
