Joseph Pilsudski was born in Lithu

ania in 1867. His parents belonged
to the gentry of Poland. All the mem

bers of his family had taken part in

the revolution of 1863-4 against Rus

sia and the boy grew up with a broad
understanding and knowledge of the

struggle of Poland for independence,

and with a hatred for Russian op oppressors
pressors oppressors in his heart. He completed
the course in the high school of Vilno,
and then went to the medical school of

Charkoff, one of the best in Russia.

At Charkoff the young Pole organized
a club among the university students.

The club was discovered by the Rus

sian authorities, and as such things

were counted dangerous in those days

in Russia, it was promptly disbanded
and Pilsudski was ordered to leave the
school and the city.

Pilsudski returned to Vilno aiid

his regular university studies. In

later years he completed his education
by reading, but never went to the
university again. In Vilno, the Rus Russian

and then suddenly arrested him and

banished him to Siberia for five years

without trial. The unfairness of this

proceeding revolted Pilsudski, and

Polish socialist organization, and
when he returned to Poland in 1894,
he took an active part in the work of
the party. For six years he was the
editor of its secret newspaper.
In 1900 Pilsudski was arrested
again. This tin capital punishment
awaited him. He feigned insanity and
escaped from prison with the help of
friends. He left Poland and for four
years he lived in western Europe,
visiting England, Switzerland, France
and Austria.
During the war between Russia and

Japan Pilsudski tried to organize an
uprising in Poland with the help of
Japan. He went with this project to
Tokio, but when he reached Japan the
war was nearly over and the national

democrats, fearing defeat, put a stop

to his activities.

Then Pilsudski returned to Europe

and settled in Cracow, where the

Poles had more political freedom than
elsewhere in the country. He realized

nothing could be done without a
Polish army, so he set about organiz organizing

Cost of Delivery
How much does it cost for a de

partment store to carry home a pack package
age package for a customer? The National

Retail Dry Good3 Association, which

is answering the question, has com

piled the results of a questionnaire on
the subject, and found that it may
cost a store an average anywhere

from 5.5c. to 30c.

Thirty-three stores, members of the
association, were asked how much it
cost them. These stores, each of
which does a business of more than
$1,000,000 annually, gathered their
statistics and sent in the results to
the bureau of research and informa information
tion information of the association. The result as
shown in a chart, indicates that for
fifteen of the thirty-three stores the
cost of delivery per package is 12-15c
For eight of them the cost is 15-18c.
It costs four stores less than 10c. to
deliver a package, two it costs 10-12c,
two 18-25c. and two more than 25c.
The stores included in the list are
scattered all over the country from
Massachusetts to California and from
Washington to Texas. The statistics
show the result of careful accounting

and include practically every expense
connected with the delivery of the

package, such as the package collec

tors' wages, the shipping department's
wages, delivery department wages,
freight and express charges, postage,

special messengers, C. O. D. collection

charges, packing supplies, gasoline
and oil, electric light, depreciation, re

pairs, rental charges for space occu

pied by the delivery department, loss1
and uniforms for employees. r

their way through the cement-block

It is presumed that the ants mi

not previously known that the insects

Owing to the fecundity of the pets
it is feared that they will produce

CRAZY HORSE was brave with a
berserker recklessness ; Sitting
Bull's daring was tempered with pru prudence;
dence; prudence; but another Sioux chief
showed a higher form of courage the
-o:inige to defy superstition and scoff
:tt the pretensions of the medicine men
at the height of their power among
Ins people. He was Crow King or
The Crow (Kangl "crow ;" Yatapl
"king" or "chief') of the Hunkpapaa.
High Bear, Crow King's brother, had
fallen ill of tuberculosis which the
big medicine man of the Hankpapas
called the evil spirit, whereupon Crow
King told him to cast It out and he
would pay him well. Although the
medicine man used all his charms and
incantations, High Bear still coughed.
80 the sorcerer changed his "medi "medicine,"
cine," "medicine," frequently finding a new ex excuse
cuse excuse for doing so and always charging
Crow King a certain number of ponies
for each new charm used. Other medi medicine
cine medicine men were called in and soon Grow
King's herd was almost wiped out.
Then High Bear died.
Crow King decided to put these
quacks out of business. He summoned
all of them to a feast, where he asked
to be allowed to see the charm by
which each worked his wonders. Each
one proudly produced his fetish a
bear's claw, a rabbit's foot, a wolfs eye
and a weasel's skin. Then Crow King
calmly dumped them into the fire.
The medicine men were horrified;
