President Wilson is praised by the

that, had such a spokesman beeii
found earlier, the sympathy and sup
port of Russia might permanently
have been enlisted on tthe side of the
Allies. The paper asserts ; also that
President Wilson agrees with Lord
Lansdowne's much discussed state statement

deny to Germany her place -. among
the great commercial communities of
the world. 7: : ;.

Reasons r Why Lowest Rung of the

&o many boys and young men are
getting the wrong start," says a mer mer-chantlnUhe
chantlnUhe mer-chantlnUhe New York Times.' The
salaries paid by most of the Wall
streetihouses are high, I believe, be because,
cause, because, first of all, the business. Just
now eaa; afford them ; and,' secondly,
there must be some premium for the
lack :of opportunity. In other words,
the; boy Is "paid high wagetr' to start,
because he can't get much higher from
the "position he fills.
In! the mercantile field, says the
writer-wbo- himself has several 'positions-open
which he ha& been unable
to fili there Is- unlimited chance for
the young mall who wants to make
something out of himself. For, once
he has learned a business from the
bottom : up he has training that will
pay .better In the end than the job
with .the, high salary at the start j
Tt is more profitable to start low
and have your salary grow every, year,
than, to stick around the same mark
or lose ground as time goes on. As
far as hours go, we have a long day.

employee knows he Is getting ahead,

A0ae Thousand Miles From Land.
, It is possible for a ship to reach a

By leaving San Francisco or Vancou Vancouver1

a spot is reached wheie there is no
land, hot even an, islet, for'a thousand
miles in any direction. So, too, sailing
from the southern point of ancient
Kamchatka southeastwards, a ship will
reach a point 'more" than a thousand
miles from land, the nearest to the
north being the Aleutian Islands, and
to the:south the Sandwich Islands, or
Hawaii. In th4 southern Indian ocean
it is possible to sa)l a, thousand miles
out from the southern points of Aus Australia
tralia Australia and NewiZealand, and still be
as far away from any other land ; and
the same may be done In a westerly

The month of September brings in
Its train the first touch of cold weath weather
er weather and frost and the co-called "equi "equinoctial
noctial "equinoctial storms. The sun "crosses the
line" oh September 23, the autumnal
equinox, and summer is astronomically
at an end. The seasonal change of
weather generally brings about that
time a violent storm with its attendant
disaster to shipping. As similar storms
occur in March while the sun is near
the spring equinox, there has natural naturally
ly naturally down through the centuries grown
up the Impression that the sun's cross
ing the' equator is directly responsible
for. these equinoctial storms. Nothing
could be more absurd. The equator in
the sky is as imaginary a circle as the
equator on the earth. ; Weather is
not made on the spot, but is the result
of influences spread over large areas.
Changes in the moon and spots on
the sun have been the phenomena most
generally blamed for changes in the
weather but apparently .without
scientific reason.
King James' Razor.
It is related that when King James

and the siege of Londonderry in July,
1690, he carried with him among other
personal effects a razor, hand ground,
but with very slight concave, if any,
and made from hand forged English
steel at Belfast, Ireland. The handle
is5 genuine ivory, with a heavy, solid
gold hack. While the blade Itself is
of little or no value as compared with
modern American made razors, the
handle has a valuation of approxi approximately
mately approximately $25. says the Christian Herald.
During the flight the king slept one
night In the house of Rev. John

In the morning, after he had shaved,
he placed his razor in a drawer and

up to the hips, when they adjust them,

continuously, day and night, for weeks,
until the owner feels the necessity of
a new pair of pants. They are then cut
loose, another old mare is killed, and
the operation is repeated.
