The virile Britisher is much impressed. A group of 5,000 hearH him speak in Trade Union House, Moscow; heard him exclaim that if Russia made a success of the Soviet plan, the western world would be ready to copy it. Shaw, super-critic of America and keen analyst of British conditions, is probably basing his predictions on his own Socialistic leanings, not at all popular even in England. Superconfident, he exclaimed to the Soviets; "It is for you to carry out your lead to an absolutely triumphal conclusion which will make it impossible for other countries not to follow you." The British philosopher hints that the Russian program is superior to the class distinctions and peerages Ul lilgiauu, ryili-uici lit Id vi la j merely playing to the gallery, remains to be seen. Shaw is 75, and he can indulge in some of his whims and many of his philosophies without danger of being taken too seriously. If he meets counter-criticism, he can retire behind an impenetrable veil of self-complacency. "When we left England we were told there was neither food nor other necessities in Russia. So we brought provisions, bedding, pillows and even tents. After we crossed the Russian border," he said, "we found these to be unnecessary and so, at each station, we began throwing our provisions out the window." Waiting Soviet hands undoubtedly claimed them. Meanwhile, Shaw surveys the Soviet, philosophizes, entertains, naps, travels in state enjoying privileges of a peer. Russia is pleased, why shouldn't she be? Shaw is good advertising for the U. S. S. R. Bu GILBERT SWAN. EW rORK, July 29. Odds and end but chiefly odds: Some call 'him the "subway sage" and some the "depot duke." His study is a bench in the coil and spacious area-trays beneath the Pennsylvania station. He is on the job, with consistent regularity about 9:30 in the morning. One reason for this is that the selection of morning newspapers is better in the refuse cans. Thousands of commuters, hurrying from their trains, toss away their papers and "the duke" has discovered, by process of elimination, the best receptical With a bit of luck be can retrieve a New York Times and World-Telegram, a Brooklyn paper and an assortment from the smaller towns upstate. Not infrequently he comes upon a first-class magazine. Thus equipped, he can retire to his cool bench-study, not far from the mouth of an air-cooling device. He removes his faded straw hat. revealing snow-white hair; his mustache is similarly whitened. His linen suit appears in good condition. Did you not observe him each morning brooding over the refuse containers, you might take him ior any commuter awaiting a train THIS, THAT AND THE OTHER THING Hi THOUGH mild in volume, the ini- A tial chorus of the cicaadas was heard .Monday night. The Song Sparrows are still singing, but the urge will soon toe upon them to go through the process of moulting. And, when they resume siging early in the Fall, their voices will be cracked and tremulous. I heard the notes of an Oriole yesterday morning, which j is rather unusual. They are seldom i heard from after the first of July, I though -they continue to hang around, j My favorite bird, the American ; Goldfinch, known bv the uninitiated j as the Wild Canary, ought to be bring- j ing off its brood of little ones quite j soon. , It is the last of the birds to nest, and does not to so until along i toward the middle of July. On a recent bright, sunshiny morning the j pigeons' were the best patrons of the Borland Bird Fountain. W hue a H. SMITH SONS' CO. Oil City's Greatest Store' Fate and Disaster are no respecters of beauty. And so Helen Walsh, victim of the yacht fire off Long Island, died in a New York hospital. Qh Broadway the Ziegfeld "Follies" went on, as per schedule, none of the cast then knowing Death had claimed her. Ix)iig about noon, the "duke" digests what he has read during the morning and starts addressing any elderly person within his range. Having spent the morning doing nothing, he is now equipped to discuss the German moratorium and the Reich; the reason for 25-cent wheat and the next Democratic nominee. When no one else will listen he talks to himself. After a time he mooches 10 cents and fares forth in search of coffee and sinkers. Then he disappears until the following morning. . a I BELIEVE every town has at least one variation on "the duke." If he happens to be at all different, it's because he selects the continuously hectic Long Island waiting room for his study. When I was a lad there were just such fellows perched on trucks at the small town depot in Michigan. They would read the country weekly and somehow manage to ferret out bits of the Detroit papers from the waiting rooms and baggage, cars. By the time the 10:59 came in, they would be ail stocked up on the affairs of the world. By noon they were on the hotel steps spouting their newly-achieved wisdom and by mid-afternoon they were gathered around the cracker barrel in uiy father's general store. . ORCHESTRA" music with drug store quiek-and-hasty lunch counters is Manhattan's latest. For years the grab-and-eat system has applied at these lunch stands and, in mid-Manhattan, the chopsuey resorts and tho larger eating spots gave competition music. The other day one of the drug stores blossomed out with a band of ils own. ; In fact, there's actually a dru2 store in Times Square where no drugs are carried in stock. Which may be a tip to the cafes to put in a few patent medicines and a couple of prescription clerks. (Copyright, 1931, NE A Service, Inc.) UR-CHILDREN c Olive Ecbcets Barton A CANAL WORTH BUILDING The party of United States army engineers which has been in charge of the mapping and survey work of the proposed canal through the jungles of Nicaragua has returned to this country. They are pleased to be assigned to the comparatively easy task for a few weeks of mapping New York City and environs. Twenty-four months were passed in the.insect-. ' infested swamps of entangled undergrowth, facing all manner of peril and discomfort. But the job js done, and the work is ready for the study of Congress or die War Department. Sentiment in favor of the.Nicaraguan canal continues to grow. It would traverse Lake Nicaragua for a distance of ' 70 miles, and there would be an almost inexhaustible water supply; in fact, Lieut. Col. Dan I. Sultan, Army Engineer Corps chief, in charge of the two-year survey, feels it would possess many desirable features the Panama Canal could never hope to have. The route is well south of the "quake peril" zone of Nicaragua. It would require five years to pass the enabling legislation and negotiate necessary treaties; and 10 years for actual work of construction, Col. Sultan estimates. Where one slide could put the Panama Canal out of service, there would be none of this danger on the new route. In addition, it would provide a more natural linking of the two oceans. So with one job well done, Col. Sultan, by way ...of diversion and department order, will soon turn attention to the study of the St. Lawrence waterway project another plan which well merits American attention and challenges achievement. The rendezvous of the Graf Zeppelin with the Soviet ice-breaker Malygin, up there in the Arctic sea, even for a brief I 3 minutes, parallels in interest daring flights of the Italia and the Norge over Arctic wastes with the even more romantic thrill of one dirigible commander greeting another whom Fate dealt an unkind blow. DURING vacation we expect wonders from the children, particularly if they are old enough to be of the slightest use about the house. For weeks before school was out didn't we say that Billy could attend to the grass this summer and that Betty could help with the dishes and beds and learn to do housework?: We have had plenty of time now by midsnmmer to take stock of these plans of ours. How have they worked out? Has Billy been cutting and digging and weeding the way we had it all fixed up? Has Betty been making immaculate beds, shining glasses, learning . to make pies, scrubbing porches? No ! And are we disgusted because we think we have the laziest, most shiftless pair of youngsters outside of a .Hark Twain story? a e e YOU need not tell me because I know; if not about your Billy and your Betty, at least about hundreds of others, and if your own are model they are the exceptions that prove the rule. Billy has to be reminded every Thursday that the lawn needs a shave. If the weeds are not soon pulled out of the phlox bed. we shall soon have to use burdocks for a table decoration. Betty plays or reads or loafs until about 11, when a Sharp reminder drags her unwillingly upstairs where she yanks up sheets with her left hand regardless of wrinkles. Her dishwashing leaves room for improvement in the form of scum her cooking is a minus quantity she is the world's prize slacker. Heigh, ho! Are we discouraged? I would say we are. We wish our complex on anybody who will listen to our tale of woe, and expect sympathy. Two lazy, good-for-nothing youngsters, that's what they are,' and what on earth are we going to do about it? We don't tell their father however, because we know very well that he not only will land on them but he will blame us. Funny about this father business, by the way, the reason we don't tell him things half the time is that we hate to acknowledge failure. We try to save not only the children but ourselves. If we get down to cases and do a bit of analyzing, masters may not look so bad. Betty and Billy are typical of all children in summer time. It is not deliberate laziness that ails them, but a natural inertia akin to tropical fever. It gets into the blood of older folk as well as children; besides children are oc I dozen of them were picking around in the grass, after their morning aDiu-tions, three more were getting the drip at the base as a robin and an English sparrow took a little dip up above. Another morning there were 23 pigeons, by actual count, sunning themselves about the fountain following their dip. If the pigeons are bent on monopolizing the fountain, it is all right with me. a a A N ever-blooming rose, developed by Henry F. Bosenberg, of New Brunswick, N. J., it was announced in Washington, has won the first plant patent granted by the United States Patent Office under the new law providing such protection. The patent was asigned to Louis C. Schubert, proprietor of the Somerset Rose Nursery of New Brunswick, and was obtained by O. M. Kile, of Washington, act ing as special -plant agent, it covers "a climbing or trailing rose," the pat entable feature of which is its ever blooming character. The owner of the patent has the exclusive right to reproduce, use or sell his invention or discovery throughout the United States and its territories for seventeen years, or to license others to do -so. -,- ' : N his column x John J. Mead, in the Erie -Times Jr., says .that tvery once in a while a preacher goes liberal, but the most liberal of recent weeks is. Rev. H. M. IPaulin, pastor of a Detroit Presbyterian church. Listen : "I've always believed that there are three points on which a man is justified in exaggerating just a little .without being called too strictly to account," he told his congregation. "They are the size of a fish he catches, his golf score, and how many miles he gets to a gallon." "Open the gates of Heaven, brother, we're coming," says John. I HE Summer number of "Virginia A First in the Heart of the Nation," which is No. 2 of Vol. VI of the publication, has just been received at tnis office. Its 20 pages and cover are all beautifully illustrated, and show some of the State's beautiful beauty spots and others of historical interest, as well as of the crops. It is published by the Virginia Chamber of Commerce.

THAT; the question of a probable the near future, those Franklinites and others who have investments in the Lower Rio Grande Valley will read with interest the prediction that comes from Florida that grapefruit may find an increased outlet through Great Britain.. Mark L. Hyde, refrigeration engineer at Tampa, after making a survey says England offers an immediate possibility for 50,000 boxes of grapefruit a month from November through February, and 100,000 boxes a month from March through August a total for next season of 800,000 boxes. To this may be added 200,000 boxes for distribution to Germany, France, Holland, Belgium, Norway, Denmark and Sweden. England can be developed into a 3,000,000-box outlet in five years, Hyde says, Ta a a a HIS one is from John L. Morrison's department in his Green- THOSE CRUISER DEFECTS Modern warships are delicate mechanisms, prone to develop peculiarities that cannot be foreseen in advance and that are expensive to remedy once they appear. Naval authorities have discovered that eight of the new 10,000-ton cruisers which are the pride of the U. S. navy have a tendency to roll in a heavy sea to such an extent that their gun crews cannot perform properly. Two cruisers the Pensacola and Northampton- have already gone to dry-dock for alteration? that are expected to stabilize them. The other six will probably follow, if these alterations prove effective. Meanwhile, the navy would like to know why five of these cruisers have already cracked the stern posts, and why they show excessive vibration aft at high rates of speed. There is no more complicated mechanism afloat than a modern cruiser. When one develops "bugs," as the auto-makers put it, the admirals are in for a good deal of worry.

It is all right to give them tasks, regular tasks too, and let them know that we expect them to do them, but fnv will not work with the regularity or perfection that our adult standards demand. Children are seldom deliberately careless they move and act under different standards from our own, that is all. WE MIGHT keep after them, but not with nagging, frowns and remarks about their shortcomings. A crisp tone that means business accompanied by a smile will go further than all the scolding in the -world if we want to get real results and not produce a resentment commensurate in volume to the work they do. Summer time is growing time; it is hot, steamy, lazy time. Why expect the children to show more energy now than they do at other more salubrious seasons of the year? We will simply have to learn to make allowances for the weather and permit everybody to do the best he can-including the children. If the house-beds have wrinkles and the flower-beds weeds, that is no sign that Billy and Betty won't be the world's most energetic people when they grow up. Perhaps we might look back and remember some summers ourselves, summers we'd like to have back all but the scoldings.
