PARIS rpHE streets of Paris, most beautiful and romantic " to look at in all of Europe, last week were the liomc of a mob--a mob whose tradition goes baclc for centuries, a mob which has changed dynasties, altered the destinies of nations and changed the course of world history. This mob dates 'wy back to the middle ages, when factions of rival claimants to royal power scuffled and fotight along the muddy alleys by the Seine. It has been repressed over and over again, so that people have forgotten it,-,and a visitor to "the most civilized city in the world" never dreams of its existence. But it is always there, dark below the surface, ready to break loose when its hour comes. A little thing: can bring' it up. In 1789 the French government was unable to balance its budget. Out of the ensuing deliberations came confusion, and in the confusion the tocsin was sounded; and the mob swept up from nowhere, to tear down the Bastille, roll a king's head in the dirt, turn raw democracy loose on a startled world, set off a ferment that is still working --and to subside, finally, only before Napoleon's famous whiff of grapeshot. It rose again in 1830, and again in 1848, and again in 1871. It has fought with paving stones and pikes, with clubs and with rifles. It has ruled all of """ranee and it has set Europe to shuddering'. Because of it the guillotine has clanked, and soldiers have killed one another in Spain and Italy and on the plains before Moscow Forever repressed, it is forever arising anew. fn the broad Place de la Concorde, where the mob of 1934 battled the troops, Louis XVI lost his head-- ancj Danton, and Marie Antoinette, and Charlotte Corday, and many another. And as the barricades wenl up the other day, and all of France rocked with tur moil, the spectre of the unaccountable once more leered at Europe. The mob of Paris was up again! DAILY SCRAP BOOK DICKINSON HE-ELECTION PREDICTED Eagle Grove Eagle: Iowa by 1936 will east her j normal republican majority vote and that will re-elect I Dickinson senator. The democrats have a right to (iis- j ike him, but they are too few to defeat him. \ NATIONAL IDOLS IN CONFLICT Oclweiti Register: A conflict between Roosevelt and Lindbergh is a. conflict between two national idols. One of them is going to suffer front the conflict nnd the public is wondering just who at will he. WILL HAMMILL DISPLACE DICK? Hake Register: It is said that Senator Dickinson's political dynasty is about to the end of the rope It should be if ex-Governor Hammil! rests a little longer and puts on an ambitious campaign. WHEN WAS IT EFFECTIVE? Fenron Reporter: In a radio address, Senator Borah said NRA has made the anti-trust law ineffective. Will the senator please tell us when it ever was effective, for the little fellow? ( "KING CAN DO NO WRONG" I Charles City Tress: The president's kitchen cabinet | lias been thrown into a spasm and they are furious* in their anathemas against any one who should presume to criticise their chief. NOT A NEW IDEA Osiige Press: Who now recalls that it was Herbert Hoover, in his acceptance address of 1928, who first proposed a program of public works for periods of industrial depression? TOV HOGS HIT $1.80 ( Hampton Chronicle: The boost in hog prices is said to be on the way and with top hogs at $4.80 in Chicago on Tuesday it looks much more encouraging for the farmer. DECOKAH MAN FOH HIGH OFFICE Becornli Public Opinion: Colflesh for governor, and (J. A.) Nelson for lieutenant governor, is a republican ticket that Public Opinion could support ,vith much enthusiasm, HEADACHE 1JNKEPEALED Forest City Summit: A good many Americans are learning for the first time the "morning- after" headache is just about the same whether it is legal or illegal. STATUS QUO Spencer Reporter: The fellow who defined status quo as meaning a h 1 of a fix would be likely to say that the Brookingrs plan for Iowa is in status quo. TURNER'S FIRST GUESS BKST Himiholdt Republican: Ex-Gov. Dan Turner said he wouldn't run, and then decided he would. This paper is of the opinion that his first guess was the best. ON A MILEAGE BASIS Humboldi; Republican: It would seem that if a change is to be made in auto taxes it would be well to tax a car so much for each mile it is driven. LEAVE IT TO ROOSEVELT Wlilttcinorc Cliiimplon: An astronomer believes that there is a possibility of the sun exploding. But we should worry; Roosevelt will take cave of that. FOR A BROADER TAX BASE Forest City Republican: What we need is N HITLER AND RELIGION O REVOLUTION was ever complete without the overthrow of the established religion. So the German nazis are merely upholding tradition, observing the rules of the revolutionary game and using all the historical weapons, when they display dissatisfaction with traditional form and attempt the creation of a new national faith. Whether the whole people will join with the zealots who are trying to create a new German Heaven remains to be seen. It is an old trick. Politicians from time immemorial have known that the masses will spontaneously lose faith in an established government or political system at the least provocation but In an established religion only through a long period of evangelizing and education. So the smart ruler inseparably associates his government with the religious faith of his people that the latter may always.think of church and state as one and the same thing. This is the ruse of the nazis. They hope to convert the Germans to a new religious faith based upon the nazi political faith that the political may endure as long as the religious. And they may succeed in their ultimate purpose If they can maintain the political faith long enough for the religious to take permanent root. NEXT FEW DAYS WILL TELL HE next few days are going to tell the fate of peace n Europe in the immediate future. It is significant of what raa^ T happen that Italy is massing troops on the Austrian bordei They are not there because Italy expects to make an invasion of her neighboring country. They are there, rather, because Italy is afraid that some other forces .may do so. And if they move in a way hostile to Italy, Mussolini will launch his troops. Thus far the Austrian civil war is a purely Austrian matter. It will probably remain so if the powers can contrive it, for nobody is ready for war. One recalls that there were desperate efforts made in 191-1 to "localize" the clash between Austro-Hungary and Serbia. But the troops were sent to the borders anyhow, just In case -- and they were soon over the boundaries. The best peace insurance at the moment is the fact that France has domestic troubles on an enormous scale. If she were as prosperous and contented today as she was a year or two ago, she would be taking an active hand in the Austrian situation to protect her own large financial and political stake in the Dollfuss government -- and the anti-France factors in Europe would be correspondingly active. broader tax base, new displacement taxes to relieve the exhorbitant property taxes of this period. PATTEKSON AND THE IOWA EXHIBIT Algona Advance: He saw the exhibit, and like many other lowans was ashamed of it. Mr. Patterson said he had seen better township exhibits.

The chemist of the Jewelers Technical Advice company, Alias C. M. Hoke, to whom I am greatly indebted for her courtesy, writes me: "I believe there are three factors in the darkening: of the skin by jewelry: The composition of the alloy, the character o£ the perspiration, and the length of time since the article was cleaned. "Let us consider the last factor first. Cheap novelty jewelry-- brass and nlckel-EUv e r necklacesjtha t soU for a dollar or two-- are 'sometimes lightly gold plated, and generally they are lacquered, but both these finishes soon wear off, and as a result the base metal is in close contact with the skin. EARLIER DAYS An Inti-rnstlriK OnHy Fi-nlllro llrnun From the (Jlobe-tilUlltc'a Mil's of tlif Ye»rs Oono lly. Thirty Years Ago-- , The Gun club departed this morning for Wheei- erwood, where it will make another attempt to bag the festive nimrods of that locality in a shoot at clay pigeons. Dr. C. H.

C. Sundcr- meyer or K. Sundermeyer, 1 suspect--for a copy of the Rake Register which contained a front, page item addressed to this department. It was in the form of an entry for my tall tale contest and it was initialed M. E. It follows: FOR EYE OBSERVING "Have noticed that several papers have been having whopper ' space, for all to get rid of their 'fish' stories. We recently heard one that we hope Mr. Eye Observing of Mason City gets his eye on: "Our friend tells us a peculiar story of the grasshoppers last year. They were so thick that there was not a single thing left for his 200 head of cattle to cut on 6,000 acres o[ land. The cattle became so tliin that they looked like spikes attached to four two by fours. The grasshoppers covered the cattle over the entire body and face so bad that they did not -see daylight, for three days. It took him that long to decide what to do. He got 500 gallons of creosote, built a trough and made hia cattle walk through the fluid. He knew that would do no good, as soon as the creosote lost its smell so he got 800 small tubs anil tied them on to the hooEs of tile cattle. Then he had his cowboys chase the cattle over the entire ranch and killed all the grasshoppers. But what to feed them after that was another question. The grasshoppers were so thick that it took three scoops full in one spot to get to the dirt. Our friend as fortunate in having a silo anil ad filled that with half ripe nl- tlfa when he heard that the grass- oppers- were coming. Of courae the rasshoppers could not drink tlic ell dry, although they made so xany holes in the water tank that . was like a sieve, in spite of the act that it was made of battleship ron. My friend took tile alfalfa and ut it through a feed mill, mixed the cad grasshoppers in, and made the attic a slop. When he shipped hem to Chicago they brought top rices as being the best cattle that ad been sold on the market, and vere graded as prime. "Put that in your pipe nnd smoke t, Mr. .Eye. --By M. E." --o-am glad to record that there is a bright apot lu an otherwise somber national accident picture. This is the con- tant reduction in occupational deaths. Our great' industries are .aking safety seriously and they are ·educing accidents.

' NOTE TO EUROPE Kinmctsliurjr Tribune: We need that money. well with a bit of chamois, nisi before putting it on, it won't stain. If not, there Is apt to be a dark streak by noon. Use the chamois at every wearing, and at every rubbing there is a dark mark on the chamois. Moral: Even cheap metal, if freshly cleaned, is not apt to stnin. "By the same token, even the host o'f gold jewelry, If long" idle and unused, is apt to stain. "The composition of the nlloy: Ordinary 14-k yellow gold consists of 14-24ths pure gold, plus 10-2-ilhs base metal, of which auout halt is copper, half silver. With green gold the proportion of silver is higher than that of copper. With white gold there is considerable nickel, some zinc, mnybe some palladium, and correspondingly less silver and copper. Elghteen-k gold is 18-24ths fine gold, plus only G-24ths base metals. Ten-k gold is only 10-2dths pure gold--in other words, more than half of a 10-k article is base metal. "The gold molecules do not tarnish at all--except under most exceptional conditions. "The copper molecules that are exposed to air promptly form a black oxide. Remember how aoon your bright new penny turns dark. If sulphur is present, a black sulphide is formed. "Silver rarely forms an oxide, but If even a little sulphur is present you can see the formation of black silver sulphide; remember the effect of eggs, or of a rubber band, on a silver spoon. "Suppose we have a good fatality solid gold necklace, and leave it unused for a few (lays. Its surface is a mosaic of molecules--gold, copper, silver, possibly nickel anil zinc. Also, more or less copper oxide, nickel oxide; and silver sulphide, all three of which are as black as your hat. "The more base metal, the more blackness. Therefore the cheaper the article the more blackness. "Let's put it on. This exposes it to rubbing, also to perspiration. Perspiration contains chlorides, and probably sulphates, possibly sulphides, and goodness knows what else. If acid in its reaction, that means hydrochloric and sulphuric acid. If alkaline, it contains ammonia. "Now, copper and nickel oxides both dissolve in these acids and in ammonia to give blue solutions. Hence a bluish streak on the skin. In the loosening of the oxides, the black sulphides are dislodged. Hence a dark streak. "People differ. I believe that the more acid the perspiration, and the more copious, the greater the darkening. Also, the more sulphur, the more darkening." ization. Members "Now, if you rub the necklace amount ia paid up. Officers clecled are R. C. LubieiiB, - - . . . . st. Ansgar, president; R. W.

J. M I ; N D V WHAT EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW Wives, you can't nag your husband into making a greater effort to gain prominence and success. He may be led and directed if the procedure is not too evident to him. Some husbands will not take suggestions from a wife immediately but will adopt plans eventually and carry them out. The good seeds of suggestion made by a wife are likely to sprout at most unexpected times. Perhaps a husband has had hints from a wife and thought about them so long that he conalders himself as the originator of the idea. It is cosier for him to carry out such plans. Many wives who do not see immediate improve ment in friend husband think the serious personal talks have been a waste of time. Impatient wives who want their husbands lo react immediately and show displeasure when they do not, are likely to thwart their own purposes. Indirect suggestion, appealing to a husband's known ability and with expressed confidence in bis ; farsightedness is the way to reach the goal desired by this sort of a wife.
