LENOX TIME TABLE, LENOX, IOWA Watch Your Posture; Has Vast Influence in Health "How you feel, how much you get out of life and how long you live depends to a surprising degree on the proper functioning of your vital organs, and their health Is largely controlled by your posture— at any rate, Improper posture will crowd or dls- I place organs and interfere with func- Itional efficiency. Many mysterious I ailments are traceable to this, says I Rex Beach In Cosmopolitan. He I passes on these tips regarding posture from Dr. Stanley Green, who I has worker them out according to Ithe principles of "body mechanics" : £>on't sit on the feet. It twists the pelvis, and may eventually produce a postural spinal curve. Sit with the weight on base of pelvis, leaning for- pard from the hips, knees not crossed, head up. At the office, don't slump with weight on base of spine or middle of back or with feet elevated. It crowds the heart and lungs, compresses the vertebrae, and may cause eye strain, headache, neuritis, lame back and other. Ills. Sit well back in chair, weight on the buttocks, head up. If necessary to bend forward, bend at hips— not at neck or waist. Standing with weight on one leg causes a pelvic twist, spinal curvature, and flattening of the .arch. Stand with weight on both legs, head erect, feet parallel or slightly turned out.

It is revealed In obscure and priceless original documents, says a writer In the Washington Post. The event to which the yellowing manuscripts relate is the appointment of Grant as lieutenant general In command of all the Union forces In the Civil war, an epochal step taken by President Lincoln more than 70 years ago. Lincoln had watched with increasing satisfaction the military record of the stocky and taciturn Grant. With the victories at Vicksburg and Chattanooga, the President reached the decision to place him in command of all the Union armies. To this resolve Lincoln held despite extreme pressure from numerous disaffected elements. Grant was called to the White House and told of the President's Intention. Lincoln called Grant aside and told him he understood the general's "dread of public speaking," and In order to make things a bit easier on that score, he, the President, had written out "the few lines" he Intended to say to Grant on the occasion of tlie formal delivery of the appointment. With characteristic breadth of vision, Lincoln urged Grant to say something In reply which not only "would be an encou rage- ment to the North," but which also "would soothe the feelings of jealousy among other officers of the army." Thereupon, Lincoln handed over to Grant the firmly Inscribed manuscript of the remarks he had prepared. In the following words, President Lincoln turned the course of history: Gen. Grant! The Nation's appreciation, of what you have done, and Its reliance upon yon for wbui remuliiH to do In the existing great struggle, are now presented with this commission constitutes you lieutenant general In the Army of the United States. With this high honor devolves npon you also a corresponding responsibility. As the country herein trusts you, so, under God, It will sustnln you. 1 scarcely need to add that with what I here speuk for the Nation ROCS my own hearty concurrence. Prepared as he had been by an "advance" of President Lincoln's remarks, General Grant replied: Mr. President! I accept this commission with gratitude for the high honor conferred. With the aid of the noble armies that have fought on so many fields lor out com* •BOB country, It will »• ">r «•*- nest eiidenvor not to disappoint your expectations. I feel the full weight of the rcNponslbllltles now devolving: upon me, nnd I know that If they nrc met It will be due to those nrmlcs, nnd nl,ore nil to flic fnvor of that Providence which lends both nn- tlong nnd ninn. The manuscript of Lincoln's words is clear and the ink as strong and black as though written yesterday; that of the Grant acceptance Is quite faded, barely legible. This, Incidentally, is among the relatively few pieces of Grantiana and Lincolnlana still kept in the Grant family here. It is not unlikely that eventually these priceless relics of a great event also will find their way into the archives of the federal government which was held Intact by the statesmanship of Lincoln and the military genius of Grant. Lincoln had to bear the brunt of heavy criticism In his appointment of Grant to succeed George Washington and Wlnfield Scott as the only lieutenant generals of the United States Army up to that time. Criticism came not only from officers of the army, as Lincoln noted, when he reminded Grant to say something to "soothe the feel- Ings of jealousy." ft came from many quarters. It came from men who pointed to Grant's lack of outstanding success at West L>olnt, to his resignation from the army and return to private life In 1854, to his financial difficulties as farmer, storekeeper, and real estate salesman. And It came from others who struck holier-than-thou attitudes. But Lincoln was not Interested In Grant's past nor In his personal habits. As the Chief Executive, Lincoln was interested In just one thing—the winning of the war to preserve the federal union. Lincoln had tried many leaders to gain that end—beginning with McClellan and running the gamut of the Burnsides and the Hookers and others almost too numerous to mention. Grant gave the dispirited North Its first thrill when he captured Fort Donelson, and when his answer to the Confederate General Buckner became public, he was known to every urchin as "Unconditional Surrender" Grant He wrote to Buckner: "No terms except unconditional and Immediate surrender can be accepted. I propose to move Immediately upon your works." Grant's successes In the West were In striking contrast to the decidedly poor showing made by the commanders In the Bast. Lincoln watched Grant all through the years of 1862 and 1863. Knowing full well the criticism which would be leveled at him, within the army and out, despite the remarkable record achieved by Grant, Lincoln nevertheless made his decision and went through with It. So It was that the man who had acknowledged himself to be a failure before 1861, received the highest military command within the power of the nation to bestow. He received It at the hands of an unerring judge of human kind who felt he finally had found the leader he had been seeking for three long and bitter years. And Grant had answered, "It will be ray earnest endeavor not to disappoint your expectations." T HE memorial to Abraham Lincoln In the National Capital is composed of four features—a statue of the man, a memorial of his Gettysburg address, a memorial of his second Inaugural address and a symbol of the Union of the United States—the four things which the martyred President held were his paramount objects. From the memorial to the west reaches a bridge, linking the nation's tribute to its Civil war President with the home of Gen. Robert E. Lee, military leader of the Confederacy. General Lee's home, Arlington, now is Arlington National cemetery, where rest the dead of the Revolutionary war, the Mexican war, the bodies of men who fought with the armies of the blue and gray, the Spanish-American war and the World war. The bridge, spanning the Potomac river, natural and historic barrier between the North and South, links, more than In symbol, the two sections of the United States. Henry Bacon, who died In 1924, was the architect who designed the Lincoln memorial and who said it should contain the four features. Daniel Chester French, famed American sculptor, produced the statue.

The two decorations, representing Emancipation and lie- union, are by Jules Guerin. Above and behind the massive head of Lincoln Is Inscribed In tho wall: IN THIS TEMPLE AS IN THE IIEAHTS OP THE PEOPLE FOR WHOM HE SAVED THE UNION THE MEMORY OP ABRAHAM LINCOLN IS ENSHRINED FOREVER The Gettysburg address and the second inaugural speech occupy the north and south walls with the decorations. Simplicity Is the keynote of the memorial. To the east front of the Lincoln memorial is the 2,000 feet long re fleeting basin In which are to be seen reflections of both the Wash ington monument and the memorial. The basin Is bordered by trees and walks and, with the memorial Is one of the world's most Impressive sights. Arlington Memorial bridge follows In simple dignity the Idea of the memorial; linking the monument of one great leader to the lost home of the leader of a lost cause. At the foot of the slope of Arlington, the roadway from the bridge ends and, ultimately, there will be roads and walks radiating from the classic road ending to the Arlington Manor house, to the Tomb of the Unknown and to other points In the cemetery, An "Armed Inaugural" Lincoln's first Inaugural was known as the "armed inaugural." The Confederacy already was In existence. A hostile attack or at least a demonstration was feared. Ranks of soldiers were massed so closely around the Presidential carriage that the occupants could scarcely be seen. The housetops on the line of march were black with guarding soldiery. The inauguration is described as "bristling with guns." Lincoln'* Ambition In 1864 Lincoln once said: desire so to conduct the affairs of this administration that If at the end, when I come to lay down the reins of power, I have lost every friend on earth, I shall at least have one friend left, and that friend shall be inside of me." IKE humans, there are all kinds of ants—busy ants and ants that live on the accomplishments of others. One often feels sorry for some of he industrious species of Formica, solid citizens, but really the "for- ;otten ants," because they seem to >e preyed upon by every sort of varrlor ant and their nests are near- y always shared with various guests and parasites. Two kinds of ants, very different from each other, sometimes live :ogetlier amicably, each occupying a separate part of the same nest and contributing to tlie general welfare. The little shampoo ant (Leptotho- rax emcrsonl), discovered by Dr. William Morton Wheeler of Harvard in the peat bogs of Connecticut, lives In tlie nests of Myrmlca canadensis, a much larger species. When tlie Leptothorax- worker needs food, it approaches the Myr- mica worker and proceeds to shampoo and lick it. Tlie Myrmica obviously enjoys this, for it regurgitates food to the Leptothorax. One day In Braizil a scientist was investigating an ant nest consisting of a mass of earth six inches In diameter In a fork of a tree. He tapped tills nest gently with his forceps, and the surface was Immediately covered with small, reddish-brown ants of the genus Dollchoderus. When he gouged Into the nest to find the various forms, a swarm of Odonto- ' maciius rushed out and one of them stung him. Oclontomachus was a , doxcn tiniPS as big as the Dolicli- oclenis and provided with strong biting jaws and a red-hot sting. Finding a Rare Ant. Often ant hunters get as big a thrill from a successful search for a rare tint as a big game hunter from tlie capture of giraffes or elephants. There Is about as much physical exertion Involved, too, turning over thousands of stones and logs, digging Into the earth, chopping hard wood, and peeling bark from innumerable dead trees. Luck Infrequently plays an important part. In 1001 Father Schmltt, a Jesuit missionary, sent to tlie great myrmficologlst, Forel, of Switzerland, a single specimen of a new and extraordinary ant from Haiti. Forel described It and nhmed tlie genus after his good friend, Carol Emery of Bologna, and the species after the Jesuit (Emeryella schmlttl). The lone specimen was long the only representative of its kind In collections. Tn Haiti at the end of a month's work a student found one solitary worker along a roadside. He had no fine-tooth comb with him, but for two months he tried every other method he knew of to discover the nest of more of the workers. Then one evening he went for a stroll just before dinner and noticed on the path a millipede, or thousand-legger, moving In an unnatural way. Bending over, he saw that the millipede was dead and was being carried by an ant The ant was Emeryella! It took all his strength of character to keep from seizing both ant and prey at once, but he smoked his pipe as calmly as he could and watched the ant till It leisurely entered a small hole at one side of a flat stone. When the stone was turned over there was an entire colony of some sixty workers. Later, In the same locality, he found a similar colony, and specimens of these have now been distributed to all the Important ant collections In museums all over the wordl. No Female of the Species. There were no females In either nest; so It Is not improbable that this species lacks a special female, and that one of the workers functions as egg-layer. At night there came to light In the student's quarters a reddish ant, which from Its general character was assumed to be the male of the species. He had talked about Emeryella when he finally reported his discovery there was a great celebra- Cactus in Ethiopia Came From Somewhere in America American barbed wire manufacturers are said to be refusing orders from the belligerent powers In Africa.

All true species of cactus are of American origin. The prickly plants were unknown In the Old world before the voyages of Columbus. But once cacti were Introduced from Mexico and South America they became established all around the Mediterranean shores in amazingly quick time, and from there they spread throughout the dry lowlands of northeast Africa and southern Asia, until now they seem normal, native parts of the landscape.

Another missionary priest, Pere Salle, had sent to the museum In Paris from Haiti a curious nest of vegetable liber, not unlike a wasp's nest. A scientist, while rummaging about among the specimens, found It and tapped it on a piece of white paper. Several dead and dried ants dropped out. They belonged to the genus Mucromlscha, the most exquisitely formed of the ants and with beautiful metallic coloration — purples, greens, and reds. The genus Is Interesting, too, because It alone of (lie nnts of the West Indies has developed into numerous species. About thirty are known from Cuba alone. Fire Ant Is a Stinger. The fire ant (Solenopsis gemlna- la) Is such a good traveler Unit one variety or another is found throughout the warmer parts of the earth. It gets its name from the painful, burning sting It can indict. A colony contains vast numbers of workers. They have recently been reported as going great damage to the southeastern But We Must Continue "Making the world safe." What phrase! It never was. "1 schmlttl BO much that It became well known to the scant white pop-. young quail In states. Fire ants nest In almost any klik of locality and are extremely pro lific. Evon flood cannot daunt the fire ant, for It has beon reportec in Brazil that, when tlie water rises and washes out a colony, the ants form a ball, quoen and brood in the middle, and this living bai lloats away to a tree or to liighei ground. The tailor ant (Oecophylla smar agdiiia) and a few other ant (I'olyrhadlna) are unique among al the earth's creatures, so far as i known, in that they use the! young as tools in nest construe tion. Few adult Insects spin silk, bu the larvae of many have this abl ity to enclose themselves In sllke cocoons, from which they will late emerge as fully formed adults. Oe cophylla utilizes this accompllsl mcnt of Its young In making It nests. Scientists have often tor one of the leaves that form its bos shaped nest and then watched tl proceedings. At first there is a wild sortie o the part of tlie ants, all In figh ing mood. They cannot sting, bu they bite annoyingly. After the have given up trying to find an destroy the Intruder, worker ants seize larvae In their mandibles and bring them to tlie damaged portions. Other workers seize the edges of tlie leaves and pull them together, while those with the larvae pass them back and forth, stimulating the grub to exude silk, which sticks and holds the pieces of the leaves together. Live In the Tree Tops. In the Solomon Islands this pugnacious Oecophylla abounds. On the Island of Malaupaina an ant hunter had for two weeks the unusual and delightful good fortune for a naturalist of being able to collect among the tops of high trees. A plantation company was felling the original forest, clearing the land for coconuts. One enormous tree after another was felled, and as soon as It came down he would go among the upper branches and collect. Oecophylla was abundant, and he reported that there was scarcely a moment of daylight during those two weeks when an ant was not biting him on the neck. He would Instinctively reach up and seize the little creature, break its neck between his thumb and forefinger and go on collecting. But once, as he crushed one o: them, he noticed that It was uu usually hard. It was another ant a Podomyrma, rare and desirable After that it was necessary for him to seize each attacking ant and carefully examine It before destroylni it, so aa not to crush a valuable THE DOCTORS ARE RIGHT Women should fake only liquid laxatives Many believe any laxative they might take only makes constipation worse.
