our elders had a strong prejudice
against the "yellow backs," and be believed
lieved believed that a boy who read them was
hiking straight down the center of the
road to perdition.
Ed S. Ellis, the man who died re recently,
cently, recently, wrote the first of the dime nov novels
els novels that made a hit, and he wrote hun hundreds'
dreds' hundreds' of them afterward, and many
other books beside. He was nineteen
years old when he wrote "Seth Jones,"
in 1859, and sent it to Beadle & Ad Adams,
ams, Adams, New YorKi who had just begun
to publish their dime novels, but had
not made a success with them. They
saw a winner in Seth Jones." Before
they sent it out they plastered the
country with posters, dodgers and
painted Inscriptions with the ques question:

when the people had guessed and won wondered
dered wondered for weeks the whole country
broke out in another rush of posters
bearing the picture of a frontiersman
in coonskin cap, with the Inscription,
"I am Seth Jones." The book made
tfie,fame of Ellis and the dime novel
and the fortune of Beadle & Adams.
It was translated into 11 languages
and a million copies were sold..
A queer thing about it was that
Ellis was brought up to be a preacher
and that he was teacher of a Sunday
school class when he wrote this first
dime novel. He used to clothe Bible
stories in imagery of his own, vivid
and exciting, and always closed the
lesson with the tale unfinished and
the remark : "Boys, we'll continue the
story next Sunday." ;A11 the boys in
the village were In his Sunday school
He wrote so many stories for boys
and girls that he lost count of them.
He -was the author ;Of the "Boy Pio Pioneer,"

books, such as a history of this
country in eight volumes, of which 100, 100,-000
000 100,-000 sets were sold.
It is said of him that he was a good
man, of kindiy nature ; that children
loved him, and that, in spite of the
preaching that has been done against
cheap novels,, there was not an immor immoral
al immoral situation nor anything that would
.tend to influence for wrong in the .hun .hundreds
dreds .hundreds of hovels he wrote. Ills'' heroes
were manly and clean-minded, his mor morals

qualities of honor, loyalty and courage.
He said just before he died that he
did not regret anything he had written
and he felt he had contributed to the
joy of living for millions of boys and
girls. The Star knows from experi experience
ence experience that this is true, so here's a
wreath to the memory of the father of

How He Was Caught.
He had no stomach for the army,
but presented himself for examination
with a "sure trick" up" his sleeve to
"work his ticket." He was physically
perfect,- but his eyesight was shock shocking

thought the doctor should see him.

the doctor, but when the medical man
applied the eye tests the would-be re recruit's

when the sergeant -had him in hand.
"No, no, my man; with sight like
that you're no use for the army," said
the medico. "But you ought to get
glasses. Stay, I've a pair like micro microscopes,
scopes, microscopes, and if you see with them you

The spectacles were produced and

NOT SAFE WITHOUT

Until all nations agree to reduce

Secretary Daniels recalls that the
1917 appropriation bill carries pro provision

"I earnestly hope the time is not
far distant when this act of Congress
yill result in such an agreement," he
continues, "and that the nations of the
earth will have the v statesmanship to
devise effective means of preserving
the world's peace without constantly

safely adopt any policy other than

Picturing the result of construction

says the main fighting elements of
the fleet, completed and in commission
in 1921, will be 27 dreadnaughts of the

cruisers, 25 second line battleships, 13
scout cruisers, 108 destroyers,.', 12

Secretary Daniels indicates clearly
the difficulties faced by the depart
ment, however, in the following lang
"The last naval bill does not give
to the department any additional or
extraordinary powers in connection
with placing the contracts for these
vessels or in obtaining materials for
their construction. It is hoped that
the necessity will not arise of having
to ask for such powers, as a number
of ship builders and manufacturers

"Undoubtedly much preliminary
work has been done experimentally

The board recommends a new or

Discussing enlistments in the navy,
Secretary Daniels shows that Con

HOW LEADING RUSSIAN WOMAN
For One Thing, She Says, "It Has
Taught Us to See a World Larger
Than the World of the Fam Family
ily Family Doorstep."
"Ton will learn In America that this
great war will have its benefits," the
doctor said. "It Is teaching us that
we are strong ; it has issued a call
commanding us to organize and act
not only in war, but in peace; it has
taught us to see a world larger than
the world of the family doorstep. It
has shown us that we can do all the
necessary old duties and have energy
and desire to accept new labors. This
morning at breakfast my children
spoke of Russian victory. I said to
them that the great Russian victories
were in the new thought and visions
of the people."
The doctor did not speak of any
class' or sex; she made no distinction
between 1 different kinds of Russian
hearts and Russian heads. There are
almost twice as many men, women
and children In the empire as In our
states, and the doctor seemed to in include
clude include them all. The doctor was near near-ing
ing near-ing middle age, but was still pretty,
even In a severe woolen suit.
The reason for her disregard of sex
is not difficult to define. Russia is the'
foremost undeveloped country in the
world. Like Its. own flat, gray expanse
of physical surface, beneath which un
touched treasures of resource lie, a
crust of mystery covers ; the human
resource- of the Russian millions. The
charm of Russia Is not In its romantic,
hazardous, youthful past, but in the
suppressed seething -, of human force
beneath the crust. What will burst
up through it? What will this war,
cracking open the surface, rending the
cover, let loose?
When I went to Russia to put my
ear where I could hear beneath, the
cru,st the new bubble and heaving of
potentiality, writes Richard Washburn
Child -In the Century, the volcanic
seething which the war has filled with
new tremors, did not think of the
Russian woman at all.
It is the women, I think, who today
possess a vision calmer jrfhan that of
the Russian men. From a woman I
received the coolest and the wisest
. analysis of the politics of the empire
and the most sensible forecast of the
struggle between the people"' and the
bureaucracy.1 Through a woman I ob-
"fi I n rl f rzi crvnn 4-ac4- nrirl ? r rrnr-rrt.
tion about the future commercial de
velopment of the land and about the
opportunities for American business
A woman drew for me the clearest
picture of what was needed to organize
for military victories. It was the wom
an of Russia who, without distortion
of self-interest, of prejudice or fear,
required of compromise with the pres present
ent present form of the government and what
of a fight to a finish. And that is the
most delicate question which Russia
must determine in the .decade which
.follows the final peace.

Appleton Miles. Born in Westminster,
Mass., August 8, 1839, he began his
military career at the outbreak of the
Civil war, starting as a first lieutenant
and winning his -way by sheer merit
an fighting ability to the rank of ma

century, ago he entered the regular
army as a colonel, becoming a briga
dler general In 1880, a major general in
1890, and a lieutenant general In 1900,
three years before his retirement from
active service. General f Miles took
part In the campaign against nearly
all of the more formidable Indian war
chiefs, including Sitting Bull, Crazy
Horse, Geronimo, Chief Joseph and
Natchez. He .represented the United
