Mebane who have made appli cation to Mayor Kosek to have the physician placed on the Board of Health have been told by the mayor that he cannot appoint Dr. Mebane because he is already a member of councils and because the idea of establishing the board was to take the health question out of the hands of councils.

a. 1913, by Rev. Mr. Thomas. HerhAr age of miracles has not only not passed.

but that enterprising newspaper, the Times-Leader, and Its corps of special correspondents are performing them every day. Wednesday, Feb. 26, Mary Boyle O'Reilly was in Juarez, Mexico. Thursday, Feb. 27, Mary Boyle O'Reilly 'was In Boston, Mass.

If that is not a miracle. then the writer hasnot the least perception of what constitutes one. For years that enterprising, sensational staff of special correspondents that rakes the world over for the Times-Leader has been the envy of Its rivals. Should the knife slip and cut her finger while the Kalserln of Germany was paring the potatoes for the Kaiser's breakfast, at once the special correspondent of the Times-Leader would keep the cables hot carrying the exclusive story over lands and under seas to the Times-Leader, i Let the Empress of Japan step on a rusty nail while chasing the hens out of the imperial gardens at Tokio, and Before the Mikado could tie up her imperial noof ln a piece of fat pork, special cor- respondents in every stragetlc point In Japan would be wildly burning up money on cable tolls in a frantic race to be the first to give the story of the tragedy, even to Its minutest detail, to the readers of the Times-Leader. Nine times ln the seven years rival publishers have been forced to drain the cup of despair to its dregs by Times-Leader special correspondents.

For nine times in seven years King Menelik of Abyssinia has laid down on his royal couch and passed ln his royal checks, and nine times li seven years the Times-Leader has scooped Its contemporaries by printing special stories from its special correspondents ln Abyssinia describing the sad scenes attending the dying moments of the dusky monarch of the little African kingdom. But It remained for Mary Boyle O'Reilly to put the Times-Leader on the pinnacle of Instantaneous journalism. Last Wednesday afternoon Mary Boyle O'Reilly and Mrs. Edwards, the wife of the American consul to Juarez. sat in the grateful shade pi the widely tufrr American consulate, that -mm portant city of Mexico.

Mary wanted the fads for the Times-Leader of the part women had played in the Mex ican revolution, and between bites cf chill con carne and sips of iced tea Mrs. Ei' wards gave Mary the story, And while listening to the facts as related by her hostess Mary, with gifted mind and nimble pen wove them into an exclusive story of entrancing Interest for the readers of the Times Leader. Then armed with half tones of her hostess, the palace and the city oi Juarez, Mary gave a hurried adieu Bhe hated to leave the grateful shade of the balcony, but duty called, and Mury listened to duty'B voice as It floated down on the Mexican breezes clear from Boston, Mass. The trial of the millionaires charged with planting dynamite in the great strike at Law rence was approaching, and it was Mary's duty to be in Boston on Thurs day, Feb. 26, to "cover" the prelim indrles for the Times-Leader.

It's a long jump frotn Juarez, Mexico, to Boston, Massachusetts. Correspond ents for the greatest journals and greatest press associations of the world would consider it excessive speed to make it ln a week, but Mary of the Times-Leader made It ln twenty-four hOurs! It may sound impossible to some but not to the writer. He Is not a skeptic. He believes that Mary made the jump for the Times-Leader of Thursday, Feb. 27, 1913, tells him so.

Ordinarily he might be a doubter, but doubt vanishes in the face of the honesty and the veracity of the Times-Leader. He has been taught that when you see anything in the Times-Leader It is (ln)correct We do not know how Mary made the trip, but we do know that Mary made it. We know that Mary Boyle O'Reilly was ln Juarez, Mexico, on Wednesday. Feb. 28, and that she was in Boston on Thursday, Feb.

27. Mary herself in the Times-Leader of Thursday on page 23, tells us that she 1 was in Juarez, Mexico, on Wednesday, Feb. 26, and we believe Mary." And Mary on page 4 of the same Issue 'tells us that she was ln Boston on Thursday, Feb. 27, and we believe Mary, for she not only tells us she was there, but Mary says over her own signature: "I have come here to Boston to try to find out WHAT KIND OF A TRIAL, this will 4e." How Mary made the trip from Juarez to Boston in one day we do not know. But we believe she did.

It may prove a hard nut for some skeptics to crack, but we have faith in Mary and exceeding faith in the Times-Leader. Let those who doubt, remember Mr. Sunday's illustration of the sheep that turn grass into wool. Mary undoubtedly made the trip. Whether the fact that her story was printed on page 23 is evidence that she "Skldooed" from Juares to Boston is for others to judge.

She may. have worn seven league boots to make' the wonderful Journey or she may have made the journey riding on the edge of the dawn of the morning.
