The Carpathian was caught in a Texas port ' at the outbreak of the war.

Rumors of German cruisers destroying commerce were .then numerous: But the men accepted the risk arid the vessel sailed for Rotterdam with a cargo of 'oil. - '' . Although the ship 'was loaded with a dangerous, cargo, which' could ;be set afire by a shell, the crew agreed, in view of the bonus, to stick 'to the captain through thick and thin, as they .testified in . court.

Waggeri-er's farewell speech in the state senate was spoken yesterday afternoon when the veteran Atchison statesman made a final plea for generous treatment for the state orphans' home at Atchison. , When this appropriation bill was pending in the senate last week Senator Lambertson of Brown county made a sharp attack on it, especially "on the $40,000 item for a manual training schpol in connection and the $7,000" asked for a . laundry. He strongiy intimated that the Atchison senator had deceived the members of the ways and means committee and the senate with respect to the needs of the institution. Today Senator Waggener arose and defended the institution . and his representations to the senate. ' Senator Waggener produced a num ber of affidavits controverting statements made by Senator Lambertson last week following a- clandestine visit to the institution . He reviewed the needs of the . home again and told of us growth from its infancy .. The mr stitution and its development is the pride of the Atchison senator. After telling what the state had done for it he said: "I personally- have spent several thousand dollars in planting trees and beautifying the road and grounds. .Pardon the personal reference, but I want the senate to know my interest in this institution. "My personal career is ended. My race in life is practically run. I only want the ( pleasure in after life, if I live to see completed the things I hope to have done, of seeing these children properly provided for. These children have no future. I want to give them some ray of hope for the future. They are the children of the state. I hope no senator will raise his voice against this appropriation. As Senator Waggener concluded Senator Lambertson rose to a ques tion of personal privilege. He challenged the correctness of Senator Waggeners statements in many respects. He offered to prove by Representative Hughbanks, who was at the institution at the same time he was, that his statements were correct. Senator Waggener rose lnoignant- iy. . .. 7 7 7 ' I have tried -to-be moderate, he said.

BED TIME TALES THE FAIRY REMEDY. "Every tree and fir and hemlock wore ermine too dear for an earl." Ovjfer i.tha ull, ugly brown earth there? fetT a 'strange hush. "Seems to me that I don't want to see this old dirty ground and this old gray sky a single minute more," grumbled a tiny fairy. "You don't!" asked another fairy, who was hidden down under sorne dead moss in a cozy little hollow of a tree trunk, "well, after you have decided that you don't want to see all this dirt any more, what are you going to do about it tell me that?" And because he knew very well (or thought he knew, which was nearly the same thing) that the grumbling fairy couldn't do a thing to stop seeing the dirt, .'he. laughed loud and long. 7 The grumbling fairy looked thoughtfully at him. "And then, too," he continued as though he had not even heard the fairy's comment or laugh, "I think it must be very foolish of us to keep on having ugly things about. We ought to take . them away or we. ought to cover. them, up, or well, we ought to do something!" The second fairy looked at his friend-sobelv. And he- suddenly realized that Silver Streak (the first fairy) wasn't just talking, that he GIRL! THICKEN AND BEAUTIFY YOUR HAIR ' was seriously ' trying to think about , things. So Gray Moss (the other. fairy immediately became solemn , too, and tried to think of some, plan to help his friends. "What does a person do, anyway," he asked by way of - beginning, "when ) they no longer want to see anything that they have to see?" Silver Streak pondered over the question a minute in a real grown-up-person fashion- and then answered, "they can only do two things. They i can do awav with the . ugliness or HVpv run rover it. im. Can von think . . - " " i of anything else?'; Gray Moss considered carefully and then replied, "no, I can't.' But what good does it do us to think of even those' two things?. .We can't do either. We can'tdo anything about the earth. We're only fairies!" "Never you mind," replied Silver Streak, cheerfully, "I haven't got my name without earning it! We may not be able to do away with all the brown ugliness of the winter scenery, but we can at least cover it up! You watch me!" that talk?" demanded Gray Moss, wha was ouite as nuzzled bv Silver Streak . 1 i r. r.
