ANDREW STYGIAN NOSTRUMS What intriguing thoughts are con jnred up by recent articles in th Ohio Medical Journal recounting thi · properties of a capsule which, taken by the motorist as night falls, wil aid his vision and help him throug' the semi-blindness of night driving The capsule, according to the Journal will be fortified with carotine-in-oil a rich source of Vitamin A, the vita min that helps the eyes to function in the dark and strengthens them against the glare of oncoming head lights. It is claimed that the vitamin also reduces eye-strain and fatigue How much more engaging would be the prospect of some potion capable of deflating the ego of the road hog or of quietly dispelling the illusion of self-conceived Barney Oldfields What a blessing if some man o science would concoct a serum which injected into these cloddish anatom ies, would suddenly imbue them .with a rare acuteness; with reflexes no too many fractions of seconds be hind the modern need. But most o all, and if we could have but tha alone--a simple, homely pill, kept on the shelves at the comer drug store A pill that would lend to the slow careless brain a medium of reason and judgment, courtesy and common eense. . But until the laboratory fulfills ou wish, we may as well accept wit] thankful humility the boon of th capsule which will help the motorist to carry on bis perilous occupation after dark. Goodness knows we need it! At least until our major, heavily traveled highways are provided wit! adequate lighting for night driving-at least until they are modern the clock around, not just in the daytime IT COULD NOT HAPPEN HERE Soviet seed has taken root on this continent and that is exactly the - reason for the continuance of mis rule over the unfortunate people ol our sister Republic of Mexico. That Republic has had a strange variety ' of presidents. The late president Calles lives in exile in California Huerta lingered out his days in Texas. The reigning president is Lazaro Cardenas, a part Indian by birth anc fullblooded in methods. A late news report says that that government is selling oil to Germany, from wells stolen from American firms. The United States has always been and still is lenient with Mexico, even though the heads of Government of that Republic, refuse to respect their obligations as good, or bad neighbors. The expropriation of about $10,000,000 of farm lands owned by Americans remains the issue, though the implications extend to many multiples of that sum in valuable mineral and oil lands seized by Mexico. Up until 1933 Mexico took away from their legal owners 25,000,000 acres of farm land, and under Car- denae in the past four years the racket speeded up as he added 31,000,000 more acres to Mexico's robber- chest. Only cultivated land was taken. 'Undeveloped land that might have been used to start new farmers on the way was not included in the Seizures. Daring intervals between the early 20'a and the present time Mexico seized and kept most of the property owned by the Catholic churches. But to get back to the land: The total seizures, without paying even 'or the recording of the transfers, rose to 50,000,000 acres. Texas is the only State on our side of the border that has more land in farms than that. Neither Kansas, Georgia, Iowa, the Dakotas, nor the Carolinas, have anywhere near as much farm acreage. Mexico has taken the land from rich plantation owners and poor farm- owners, among whom are citizens of the United States. The "expropriated" lands, have been distributed to non-land-owners, which would be just the same proposition as taking United States land away from their lawful owners and giving them to the sharecroppers and tenant farmers Of course, Secretary Hull spoke c plain truth when he called this "unadulterated confiscation"--otherwise unadulterated stealing. Official banditry of that sort has never yet darkened the pages of our national riistory. Cardenas dodges the issue, and glibly replied to Hull: "Diplomacy itself has been converted into a protector of privileged concessions," he says in defending his connivary which the U. S. Secretary says "runs counter to the basic precepts of all American republics." But the Min ister of Education of Mexico makes the position of his country clearer. He says: "We shall install a social istic education to prepare .for the final abolition of the capitalistic system and the dictatorship of the proletariat." The Education-er let the cat out of the bag. AMERICAN SCHOOL BELL IS A LIBERTY BELL We Americans are a proud race We brag about our triumphs in science and inventions, and pat one another on the back as we repeat the stories of human achievements in our country. The greatest progress of all has been made through the public echoo system. The colonists and the pioh eers began building toward the work of desires with their little log schoo buildings. American Education Week is an nounced by the National Education Association of the United States fo November 6 to 12. The Association tells us that "we cannot know al that the future will bring forth, bu one thing we do know: as life grows more complex, problems become more difficult." It adds: "To help insur the building of a better America fo those to come, let us develop school: which will leave for posterity n hcri tage of ever-increasing integrity am enlightenment." In 1898 the Philippine Islands wer populated by down-trodden pcopl who lived under the oppressive hee of Spain for centuries. One of th first ship-loads of real conquerers ti follow Dewey to Manila were Amer ican school teachers. Today the Fili pinos are the most enlightened am educated people in the Orient. Thej are practically free, as the existing arrangement between our country and theirs is mostly protective o their interests. Most of all that our country has accomplished may be credited to ou educational system, which we always refer to as "educational advantages" It all started with the American school bell which has called 30 mil lion students back to their studies That bell is the real American Liber ty Bell.--J. E. J. THE WAR AGAINST DEPRESSION The United States has had a lo of experience in waging wars agains depressions and post-war conditions in recent years. The Government employing the same measures at this time that proved effective the las time. The method is more direct than that which falls to the responsibil ity of big and little business and tha immense pait of the American pub lie, to whom it concerns. By way o: illustration, it is evident that if an automobile manufacturer is prevent ed from producing cars that he wil not need tires from the great rubbo industry, or trainloads of steel, or the greatest part of cotton that goes in to any one manufacturing industry not to overlook the fact that glass upholstery fabrics, copper, wood brass and other products o/ agricul ture, the mines and factories are sup plied from every State in the Union --to go into automobiles. Dealers, and merchants in all lines of business are calling for more goods. To fill these orders the manu facturers are buying raw materials No statement could be more important than that General Motors Chrysler and Ford expect an improvement in business for 1939. The automobile industry "pulled the country out of the last depression". With all the natural advantages that the Nation enjoys there is reason for encouragement in this month's outlook, confirmed by official and unofficial statistics, that there is an upward turn for the better in these affairs of the Nation that arc of most concern to our people. CITIZENS OF SMALL TOWNS There are about 3,000 county seats and 10,000 towns in the Untied States vith eleven or twelve thousand wcck- y newspapers. There are approximately 2,000 daily newspapers. Cites of 100,000 inhabitants or more iave a population of 26 million peo- le. The rural population is 53 million, ogether with an additional 10 mil- ion living in small cities, plus addi- ional millions living in small towns nd villages. Census statistics leave ne with the impression that mail daces under 25 thousand inhabitants are connected with rural and small own regions, and so closely tied together in their human relations and rade that they continue that great ndistinguishable class of our people o often referred to as "small towns", erhaps nearly two-thirds of the United States is outside the influence f the greater cities. In 13 or more States are no cities in the big popu- ntion league. The people of small towns are of- en referred to as "the homefolks". Edwin S. Smith, a member of the Nii- ;ional Labor Relations Board, worry- ,ng about these people who show more competency in attending to their own affairs than any other cla» ; of citizens is reported to have made speech this month in Mexico City, in n hall filled with radicals, and hung with a sea of red banners, in which he declared that "the most disturbing sign of the tinuv in the United States is the ease with which citizens of small towns can be ar- ·aycd against vicious propaganda, of employers." Administrator Smith apparently is ignorant of the fact thai ndependcnt thinking ha; its strong- lolds among citizens of small towns. It is at least regrettable- that the efforts of the State Department, and the firm position of Secretary of State Hull has been virtually attacked by another official who should cp his nose out. CHEMISTRY REDUCES SOURCES OF STRIFE. ASSERTS SCIENTIST Revolutions may be bloodless. Men of Science "remaking" the world today ore waging juot such a revolution--not behind barricades, but in research laboratories. Through their efforts, economic inequalities so often the cause of international strife gradually may be reduced to a minimum, according to Dr. Hnirihon E. Howe in the current Rotarian Magazine. "Wars are often occasioned by the scramble for supplies of raw materials, natural resources," declares Dr. Howe, who is editor of Industrial and Engineering Chemistry. "It has been said that 27 different natural products are necessary in an industrialized nation. If a nation possesses 23 of these within its borders, as the United States does, it truly may be called highly self-sufficient; but if a nation has only six of them, as Germany does, it is not naturally self-sufficient." Nations believing themselvw to be handicapped and underprivileged may turn to their chemists, he believes, for chemical analysis and science in general greatly broaden the industrial base, increasing the number of raw materials that may be u=cd to produce finished products. Thus the chemist may use the basic elements in whatever form or place they may be found--nitrate from the air, bromine from the sea, camphor from turpentine. "A shortage of natural wool, coupled with hopes of realizing national economic solfi-ufikiency, has caused Germany and Italy to produce substitute and artificial wools synthetically," continues Dr. Howe. German's zcllwole is made from wood fiber and Italy's wool is made from casein. Modern gla-=s cloth is a triumph of chemistry, ceramics, and engineering in the United States where rayon has also been developed for so many uses. Synthetic rubber though not so cheap as natural rubber is better for many purpa-cs, the scientist reports. Russia is making a synthesized rubber, Sovprene, mostly from alcohol derived from potatoes; Germany makes what it calls Buna from butadiene starting with acetylene; the best-known American synthetic rubbers are Neoprene, using acetylene; Thiokol from thylenc, chlorine, and sulphur; and Koroseal, made from vinyl acetate and a plastic izer. This is the chemist's way to peace, conclude.? Dr. Howe, for by using chemistry and industrial science, nations can have a wider choice of raw materials. Every day chemists are showing how nations more and more can make what they need from materials in their own backyards. lem ranked in sanctity with Mecca and IMelina. And to England the land now claimed their interest not only along humane and religious linos, but it had become of practical importunco: control of land about the zone of the Suez canal, of transportation lines, old and new, of terminal; for oil shipment from Iraq--all of these leaped forward for recognition. Turkey, master land of Arabia, came into the World War on the side of the Allies. The Arabs, having had promises made them by the British, revolted. At the end of the war Palestine wn = in the hands of the British. According to arrangement between French and Arabs and British, (secret for the most part) the Arabian peninsula was divided and subdivided. Palestine came under the British, n British mandate granted by Geneva. Clashiv between Arab and Jew in this Holy Land became more frequent and violent, England finding it increasingly difficult to keep peace and insure progress. The Jews were returning in such numbers that it became necessary to o-tablish an annual quota. The burning question became--and is--Who Shall Control the Future of the National Home? On this issue the two parties have locked horns. Commission;, committees, statesmen have studied, investigated and reported. They arc recommending at present still further division of area. Palestine which u as small as New Hampshire may be reduced to Delaware size. Newspapers supporting the Roosevelt administration arc mild in criticism of Old Guard campaign tactics by comparison with .the Republican were for the most part Czechs, but along the boundary lines and in different parts of the new country nationals merged, especially in the Sudeten Mountain region where German.! and Czechs came together. The question of minorities! In the shift- ings and changing of power in Central Europe neighboring people had managed to get along somehow together, unless some, ambitious leader stuck a spearhead into necessary adjustments. And here was chance; unbounded ambition of a leader outside the boundary lines and unwilling citizenship of those living in the Sudeten region, German for the most pail and turning towards Germany and German welcome. This movement away from the Czech.: was followed--is being followed--by the Hungarians in Czechoslovakia's borders and by the Poles. L; the country to be tarn apart? Will ii'W boundary lines upon the map show that it no longer exists? Ens- land and France and Russia once pledged themselves to its continuance. But conturc-nces as to the Republic's HEALTH TRAILER TOUR Child-hcmlth-confcrcnccs-on- wheels were held in eleven counties, in connection with the summer tour of the Health Trailer of the Bureau of Child H j git-lie of the State Department of Health. The Trailer started on its f o u n d s on Child Health Day--May 1--and remained in the field until Intend of August visiting sections of the State not ordinarily reached by the child health conferences held regularly throughout the year. Over 180 places were visited and over 7,000 miles travelled. One or more clinics was held at each place for the examination uf babies and their older brothers and sisters, not under medical care, and for conferences with the mothers about the health needs of their children. The staff of the Trailer included a doctor, a dentist, a public health nurse and the driver of the car, who li:ul charge of (.lie health movies shown in the jvc n ings. The tour started in Cecil county mid ended in Somerset. The othei future are being held. Every hour counties visited included Charles, St presents a changing answer. Only the past can be stated with accuracy. prc s'. Of late G. O. P. editors have directed n barrage of invective at their party leaders for supplying them and Senate and House nominees with "factual material" which they assert reeks with bald misrepresentation. They complain of false statistics eonccining the farm programs, reciprocal trade agreements, business conditions, social security, the housing acts and especially WPA. For example, after having denounced the Had anyone i uggestcd a few years ago that England and France would seriously propose that Hitler be given his way in Cezhoslovakia without opposition, he would have been re- gaulcd as a candidate for a psychopathic ward. Now the incredible has come true. France and Britain are apparently ready to throw their treaties and obligations overboard in a desperate effort to avoid war-even though that effort mean? a tremendous step forward in prestige and power for the dictators. However, the end to this chapter has not yet been written. The Czechs have been making a firmer course, fis their action in outlawing the Sudeten party and placing the Sudeten area under " mnrtial law i=hows. The Czech premier has stated that they will yield no farther. And some experts believe that Prague has managed to obtain guarantees from Mos- Hary's, Calvert and Prince George's n Southern Maryland; Kent, Queen Anne's, Caroline, Talbot and Woices- ter on the Eastern Shore. Arrangements in each county were under the lirection of the County Health Of- EDITORIAL NOTES Palestine is just about ns large as New Hampshire. It is smaller than any other area of trouble upon the world mup. Czechoslovakia with its tragic possibilities, Spain torn with civil war, China blanketed with miseries--compare their areas, but compare their bepuzzlcments also. Tha of Czechoslovakia is straight cut shall we continue as a country: Tha of Spain; which will be victoriou and govern our land, loyalists or rcb els. That of China is most probablj linked up with a third question which shall be the super-nation in Asia, Japan or Russia. But the com plexity of Palestine. It k of area, of nationality, Ian guage and religion. Crises in Europe nnd the Far East conic and go, thost of Palestine flare and smoulder, but persist. The morning paper (Sept 18th) reports a serious clash. Caesar with his "omnia Gallia" and his "trcs partrcs" thereof had an easy job The area was great, the boundaries indefinite. It was n new land. Palestine is old, was old when history came up to its dividing line between B. C's. and A. D.s. Assyria, Babylon Persia played their parts in its ruling before the Pax Romana and the coming of Christ. And since then Ro man, Tartar, Crusader have addec their part to the strife. And Great Britain. When in 135 A. D. Jerusalem was destroyed and the Jews scattered abroad their persecutions began and their dreams. They would return as they had done from Balyloniun captivity. English sympathy with this dream was deeper than that of other countries. It can be traced through lusty pamphlets and records back to 1GOO. It was openly broached in Cromwell's time and still more pub- icly in Queen Victoria's reign. After :he horrible programs in Russia in 380-1010 a plan for establishing a national home for Jews in their lomeland of Palestine became more efinite. A Viennese Jew, Thedor lerzcl, called a congress of Jews at lasle, Switzerland, in 1807 and the iionist Organization was founded. But the Arab and the Turk had iow owned the land for centuries. It ad become not only their homeland ut it was sacred land also. Jerusa- ttllegud employment of, GO per cent of ] cow that Russia will come to her aid non-relief persons on the WPA rolls in Indiana, the Republican newspapers in that state learned locally that the real figure was less than 2 per cent, whereas the law permits 5 per cent maximum. A severe complaint relates to representations that the joint Congressional-Executive monopoly investigation would drastically retard business improvement and stagnate large industries. Senator Vandenberg, Editors Knox and Gannett and gradually the Congressional and State nominees who look to those leaders for if hostilities start. No one can forecast what will happen if the Czechs refuse the Chamb- erlain-Daladicr surrender plan and fight. A reliable news commentator in Prague announced over the radio that a high Czech official said to him, in effect, "We are not big enough to defeat Germany--we are big enough to start a European war if we have to." Many think that point of view is correct. At the time of this writing tragedies on every hand loom high ami inspiiation, have roundly scored this hopeless. Such a sense of futility and "Roosevelt meddling." Yet press releases from'the National Association of Manufacturers, known to all editors as an uncompromising foe of the New Deal in the past, reveal a temperate attitude toward the anti-trust inquiry. Quoting from a special report to its members, the N. A. M. not only dissipated fears (jf a "witch hunt", about which Col. Frank Knox has been raving, but advised the members to "aid in the collection of factual and informative material." Discovery of this development, which should have been known to the Republican National Committee weeks ago, ha; incensed G. O. P. editors. Another cause for bitter complaint relates to misrepresentation of the country's foreign relations. No soon- ;r had Republican spokesmen flayed the administration for its lack o severity in dealing with Mexico tha the topic was treated in handout from Republican sources of supply The contention was that the Unite State- would "lose face" with th other Latin-American countries Whereupon the conspicuously conscr votive Boston Transcript unwittingl; exposed the fallacy of the charge i: an editorial lend which said: "The alacrity with which a vas section of the South nnd Centra American press has taken the sid of the United States in the contro versy with Mexico should go far t reassure Secretary Hull of the csscn tial righlness of our position. In num. crou.3 countries--Brazil, Argentina Chile, Colombia, Ecuador--newspap ers voice their astonishment over thi stubborn insistence by the Cardenn government. Typical of most is thi from La Esfera in Caracas, Vcnczu cla: 'Apparently our Mexican col league considers that the Gooi neighbor policy authorizes one to throw out the window a visitor who has "arrived in a peaceful, friend]; manner; and not only throw him ou but nlso take awny his hat, clothe; and whatever he has in his pockets'.' "It is true," the staid old Trans cript adds, thus blasting away the last vestige of this reactionary crit icism, "that the Good Neighbor pro gram is now regarded us a two-side* arrangement. To have brought tha change about constitutes a rea achievement for Secretary Hull am the Administration at Washington. Who can state Czechoslovakia's present status? Who dares forecast her future? Only her past can be truthfully presented, and that is somewhat as follows: This Slavic people drifting into Europe concentrated in Central Europe--about 451 A. D.--and in the division called Bohemia. According to changing powers it had various overlords until at the time of the World War it was (and had been for some time) part of the Austro-Hungary empire. But they tiad no fondness for these overlords. When by the Treaty of Versailles European boundaries were redrawn and, according to her dreams, traditions and ambitions and in accordance also with Wilson's sympathetic appreciation of such dreams and hid doctrine of self determination, six new sovereign states were estab- ished, Czechslovakia was one of hem. Bohemia, and part of Moravia, Slovakia, and Ruthcnia were united nto this new republic. This new State took its place upon the European mup and began to play nn important art in the progress) of the continent. The nationals of this new republic despair obtains that for the first time in any release a long and direct quotation IK given. 1'his is taken from Van Loon's "A World Divided Is a World Lost": "I am firmly convinced that mankind is only at the beginning of its career; that most of us arc still cavemen, although we proudly drive around in our little cars and arc able to tune in on a concert that conies to us from the other end of the world. I am even more firmly convinced that there u not a problem that faces us that cannot be eventually solved by the application of our power of reasoning. It is true that we still find ourselves surrounded by all sorts of difficulties and in a world full of greed and injustice and unnecessary suffering. But what else could we expect when we remember those five thousand years during which we have been able to live more or less like civilized human beings and compare them to the hundreds of thousands of years during which our ancestors were forced to compete with the wild animals for a chance to survive. Look at this world from this angle and you will be able to share my optimism". TREACHERY IN KOREA Soon after our Civil War on American merchant vessel visited Korea, where both the vessel and crew disappeared. Our Government sent a : mall fleet to investigate the affair and to make a treaty with Korea, guaranteeing the future safety of our seamen. While engaged in this peaceful mission, without cause the Koreans treacherously opened fire on our naval vessels. As a result of this unprovoked assault, U. S. Marines and bluejackets landed from their ships in the Salcc River and went into action against the savage horde. Fort after fort was captured by the hard-driving naval men, nnd there remained but one obstacle to the final defeat of the enemy and complete success. But this last barrier was defended by more than a thousand fearless Twenty=Five Years Ago Taken From The Journal of 25 Yearn AnoThlt Week. Hayes Murphy have purchased a .ract of 253 Vi acres of timberlund in West Dover hundred, Kent county, Delaware, a part of the John L. Boyd 'state. The price was $12,025. Mr. L. B. Towers h:u bought from Mr. Jacob Ghingher a twelve-acre tract near Denton Bridge, where Mr. Ghingher has resided for a number of years. The pi ice paid was three thousand dollars. Mrs. Annie E. Taylor, 74 years old, widow of Benjamin F. Taylor, died suddenly Monday of heart trouble at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Norman R. Smithers, Easton. She is survived by two daughters, Mrs. J. L. Erwin, of Concord, N. C., and Mrs. Smithers. Funeral services were held i Over 3,400 children, ranging in age from babies a few weeks old to youngsters nearing school age, were jrought to the conferences by theii mothers or others interested. The older children--over 1,000 five and six year olds were examined in preparation for admission to school. Special attention was given to the general health of each child, to indications of malnutrition, to chest conditions, to the throat, nose, tonsils, and teeth, and to evident defects of vision and hearing. Children in need of corrective care were referred to their own physicians. One out of every three of the children measured up to all of the health standards. The rest needed attention of some sort. Approximately one out of seven was underweight nnd needed building up. Nearly as many had unfavorable conditions of the nose or throat, and about a third of the total needed dental attention. The trailer is divided into two compartments, one for the general physical examination and the other for the dental. The child's size dental chair had great attraction for the youngsters who submitted with the courage of the true adventurer to extractions and treatments. Nearly 1200 of the children had the benefit of corrective dental care. Fillings or other treatments totalled over 700 and more than a thousand "first" or "baby" teeth were extracted from their owners. About one-third of the children had not been protected against diphtheria and vaccination against smallpox had been neglected for over half of the children who were getting ready to enter school. Supplemental clinics "for protection agianst these diseases were arranged all along the tour for the benefit of the children for whom this service was needed. In connection with these clinics, over 1,000 of the children were immunized against diphtheria and 670 were vaccinated against smallpox. The travelling conferences supplemented the child health conferences held as usual during the summer months in other parts of the State. The fall and winter schedule, now in effect, makes provision for periodical conferences in every section of the State. from her home Wednesday, Bishop William Forbes Adams officiating. Burial took place in Spring Hill cemetery. Mn=. Taylor was a native of Caroline county. A dispatch from Washington Thursday said the President had concluded to re-open the question of appointment of the position of collector of internal revenue for the district of Maryland and Delaware. Maryland men of prominence had induced the President to re-open the question, although a commis. ion for Mr. Alfred Raughley, of Harrington, had been made out and was lying on the President's desk, awaiting his signature. Mr. Raughley would likely secure the appointment any way, the Baltimore News believed. Mr. Raughley has relative.; and hundreds of friends in Caroline county. Few weddings in Baltimore have attracted the attention which is now directed at that of Miss Florence Shoemaker Dixon, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Isaac H. Dixon and Mr. Childs Frick, son of Mr. nnd Mrs. Henry Cloy Frick, of New York and Pittsburgh, who will be married at Old SU Paul's Church, at noon, October 14. The grandparents of the bride-to-be, Mr. and Mrs. Josiah White, of Atlantic City, formerly resided near Denton. Mr. Frick has one sister and no brothers, so his father's fortune e-timated at from $75,000,000 to $100,000,000, will fall, in large part at least, into his control. In point of wealth fiance, Mis,; Dixon, with the possible exception of Mrs. Alfred Gwynn Vandcrbilt, formerly Miss Margaret Emerson, is making a more brilliant match than that of any other Baltimore girl, (=ays the Baltimore Sun.

Towers' numerous friend-- take strong ground in his favor, denying that he is a corporation man, and pointing out that he has exceptionally desirable mental poise and fine executive ability for the high post. The Baltimore press, Towers' friends feel, seek to put the field against him in this race, and fear he may be thus defeated. SLATS' DIARY BY OLIVER N.

Reedcr, Chief Engineer of the National Safety Council, in a recent issue of the magazine, Public Safety. Mr. Rccder says that all safety educational agencies must teach the motorist to plan his night driving to meet the peculiarities of night visibility. Explaining the relation of light to safety, the traffic expert points out that in the daytime most objects are seen by surface detail in the diffused light of the sun. At night, however, almost all objects are distinguished in silhouette, and the effectuation of discernment by silhouette is one of the most important principles of good street and highway lighting. In the words of Mr. Rceder, "When two drivers are npproachin each other, each looking into th other's lights and not watching th edge of the road, it's a matter of th blind leading the blind." Safe driv ing at night is a challenge to inpcn uity and a partnership job, and in tiis belief the driver who refuses t depress his headlights is not a part ner but nn enemy. Aa most of our roads arc at prcs ent not illuminated by fixed lighting men--men who were famed for their 1 these are the precautions which Mr prowess as tiger hunters and who aughed in the face of death. Crown- ng a conical hill, one hundred and fifty feet from the bottom of a ravine, towered the walls of a citadel. [t was there the Koreans made their ast stand. The naval force scaled the steep slope and as they approached the jarapct, the enemy abandoned its ancient firearms for clubs and knives. Vith a de-'poration born of futility, hey rained rocks down on the at- acking Americans or picked up dirt o fling in their eyes. Once inside the fortress, cutlasses, pears, matchlocks and every con- icivable weapon of the time were wung into action in the last series f hnnd-to-hund encounters. There were scores of individual nets of her- ism. The Koreans fought to the oath. Only twenty natives survived. Determined to capture the Korean ag, two marines made their way to 10 yellow banner, decorated with hincsc characters, and tore the cm- lem from its staff. Thereafter, American vessels in those waters ,'ere unmolested. Reeder suggests to the driver as cs scntial to safety at night: 1. Watch for objects on the roai revealed in silhouette by the head lights of approaching cars. 2. Watch the right hand edge of the road and avoid looking into other drivers' headlights. 3. Slow down at sundown to compensate for lower visibility". 4. Whenever there ia a curve 01 hill crest ahead, revealed by the other headlight?, slow down to the proper speed corresponding to the lack of view of what is around the curve or over the hill.

Good Food For Sound Thinkers All that we see or seek is but n dream within a dream.--Poe. Little strokes fell great oaks.-- franklin. The wedding of Miss Emma S. Hubbnrd, daughter of Mrs. J. P. J. Hubbard, formerly of this county, now of Talbot, to Mr. Lewis R. Hubbard, a groccryman of St. Michaels, took place in Easton on Wednesday at high noon. The ceremony was performed by Rev.'W. E. Gunby. The bride wore- a blue traveling suit, hat to match, and carried a beautiful handmade lace h.indkerchief. After the ceremony Mr. and Mrs. Hubbard motored to Cordova, whence they started for Atlantic City*and other points, of interest.

Can you beet that RADIANT LIVING BLISSFUL Mf. PISGAH By Rev. C. M. Griffeth Methodist Pastor of Deal's Island, Md. The top of Mt. Hermon, upon which it is said that the transfiguration of Jesus took place is a region of splintered crags, deep snows, and howling gales. But the height which one reaches in that kind of praying that transforms one's will into a perfect harmony with the will of God may. be likened to a height bathed in the sunny atmosphere of a perpetual balmy springtime. If you would like to symbolize this joyous experience which you feel when you have attained that place of full surrender and consecration, in which you have unreservedly accepted God's will and plan for yoar own life, you might think of a rounded summit of a mountain height. Here upon this summit you may picture a beautiful mansion, the mansion of Divine fellowship. On all sides, as they gently fall away are laid out lawns and gardens, vineyards and orchards, watered by crystal springs and spraying fountains, interspersed by charming flower-lined walks and arbors, made melodious by songbirds. This height may well be called Mt. Pisgah, a Hebrew term, meaning; "purity". Upon such a summit there reigns an eternal peace, symbolical of that peace which ensues when the human will ceases to struggle against the will of God. As a certain writer has truly said: "The highe.t state in religion is a destruction of the selfish will." It is on such a height of spiritual development that there come those rare moments when God speaks directly to the Soul, moments in which the soul hears the divine Voice saying: "Thou arc my beloved son, the son of my adoption." And it is here, as though in an antiphonal response; the soul, in ecstacy, replies; "And Thou, 0 God, art my Father!" Auditor's Order Nisi CALVERT C.
