win a success that will count heavily
on the result of the war.

WE WANT OUR WARS TO WAIT
The following editorial is taken en entirely
tirely entirely from the Chicago Tribune:
Gen. Crozier, chief of ordnance, said
to a Tribune corespondent in Wash Washington:
ington: Washington: "People fail to look on the
machine gun as materially different
from a rifle or pistol. They .rvddn't
think of it as a complex machine: and
i hence they don't understand why the
gun jams so easily. It jams because
it is not handled exactly right, as any
complex machine has to be handled.
You can see then the folly of enlist enlisting
ing enlisting in a machine gun company any
except mechanics who understand the
delicacy of complex, machinery." 3
The same day an official of the state
department to whom was explained
the desire of wealthy men in Chicago
to equip the Illinois machine gun
companies with guns said that. ', of
course private citizens could not
requisition the guns from the manu
facturers who are selling them under
contract to Fivope, but that the gov
ernment could and would "if the guns
. Gen. Crozier says that it requires
high mechanical skill to operate a
machine gun. The machine gun com companies
panies companies of the Illinois national guard
have no guns. None can be bought,
although the money is ready, because
the manufacturers are selling their
entire output to France and Great
Britain. The government can buy,
but is waiting until the guns "are
necessary." The Illinois guard is be being

necessary they will get the guns in an
emergency when they will not know
how to use them because of unfamil unfamil-iarity

One reason there are no machine
guns is because this nation wants its
wars to wait until the new Vickers
gun is ready and on the market. Any
wars which come before that tfme
take an unfair advantage of us. We
are not ready for them. War ought
to have a heart.
Another reason our army cannot
have machine guns is because our
manufacturers have to sell all they
can make to European nations. The
war in Europe is more important to
the United States that the war the
United States is getting into.

When the pan-European war broke

London," where I could get a steamer
for America as soon as possible, for I
feared an interruption of travel. But
there was such a crowd of fugitives,
besides the troops, being moved west westward,

the trains were less crowded, so I re remained
mained remained where I was, and finally there
came a time when I felt that I could

I chose a way train, because the
main exodus was on the express
trains. The former are composed of
compartments holding eight persons,
between which there Is no connection.
The latter are also compartments, but
there is a passageway so that one can
walk through the train, as in America.
The compartment in which I started
Was full, but travelers kept getting
out at the stations until there was
but one person left, a woman who
wore a veil thick enough to conceal
her features. ,'
As soon as she and I were alone
she began to show signs of illness. I
asked her if I could do anything for
her, and she replied in a coarse voice
for a woman, I thought asking me if
I had any liquor. 1 told her I had
not, whereupon she said that she had
some very fine brandy which she had
intended to make a present to her
mother, but she must use it. Taking
It from a handbag, she poured a little
of it into a glass she produced and
drank it off. Then, suddenly, remem remembering

liquor into the glass and handed it

I did not propose to throw away such
good liquor, and drank it all. A few
minutes after I bad done so I began to
feel dizzy and the power to ; move or

discarded all appearance of illness and
asked me how I liked her liquor. I j

I was a very little girl at the time,
but a great sorrow or a great happiness
will impress itself on the mind of a
very young child so strongly that it
will never be forgotten. Mother died,
and my brother Jimmie was taken
away by a lady, while I was placed in
an orphan asylum.
However, this lugubrious beginning
was the harbinger of a life of ease and
comfort. In time I was adopted by a
wealthy couple and treated as affec affectionately,
tionately, affectionately, as much lavished upon me,
as if I had been their real daughter. I
was given a liberal education and as
many accomplishments as I had a fit fitness
ness fitness for. Then I was "brought out" in
the most approved fashion and entered
society as a young lady.
One summer a girl friend of mine,
the daughter of Major Shelbourne of
the army, invited me to visit her at her
father's post in what was then Indian
country. I had seen enough of society
to tell me of its hollowness, insincerity,
selfishness and bargain and sale In. the
matter of favor, and it occurred to me
that I would find something more sat satisfying
isfying satisfying in one of those army posts that
had been described to me as consti constituting
tuting constituting a large family. I went to Fort
Tomkins and found things very much
as they had been described to me.
r One day several of the younger offi officers

ones went on a picnic. I learned be before

not hear why. I learned soon enough,
to my cost. The Indians had for some
time been very unruly, and while we

We had gone to a stream at the foot

one of the party saw several Indians

men with us for our protection. There
werfe three lieutenants and the man
who had come to warn us. The offi officers

ourselves and not attempt at once to
reach the fort The ravine lay but a
short distance on the other side of
the stream,, which we crossed in the
wagon and were soon in a position
where we could hide behind rocks,
which also furnished a, defense from
which to fire.
I shall only speak of our defense by
a few brave men against several times

show. that, the soldiers "fought skill skillfully

Indian warfare to keep the savages at

to get around us, endeavored to pick

We two, kept widening the distance

suddenly we saw an Indian between
us and our friends.
I saw by the expression on the sol soldier's

Sam Horton was a young bdtcher.
He was short and squat and twenty twenty-two
two twenty-two years old. He had a waddle like
a goose when he walked. He moved
over from the town of Grand Ledge to
the town of Eaton Rapids and opened
a butcher shop.
Sue Smith had got eighteen years old.
She was a good looking girl, but pert
to the point of impudence.
Sam brought a bobtail ed dog over
from Grand Ledge with him.
Miss Sue owned a crosseyed cat. She
was not a handsome feline, but she
was an affectionate one. Unlike most
cats, she would follow her mistress
about town like a loving dog. When
Sue Smith' heard that a new butcher
had come to town and that he was a
young man who would probably be
looking around for a wife she did not
wait long before she presented herself
at the shop and asked for a juicy piece
of meat for her companion. The cat,
of course, followed her. She. had also
heard the news, and she hoped for a
change from the old butcher.
"While the young butcher "was smil smiling
ing smiling and bowing and filling the order
and saying to himself that a good look looking
ing looking girl stood before him his bobtailed
dog entered the shop. There was a
growl and a snarl, and crosseyed cat,
bobtailed dog. girl and butcher and
sawdust seemed to be all mixed up.
The row lasted until the cat flew out.
and then Sue Smith turned to the
butcher and said:
"I would like to burn your dog, sir!"
exclaimed Miss Sue as she flashed the
young man a look of indignation.
"Oh, as to that," he replied with a
faint smile, "your old cat may .sudden .suddenly
ly .suddenly disappear off the earth!" ;
And that was how her crosseyed
cat and his bobtailed dog first met, and
there were no cooing doves around to
make them remember the first meet meeting
ing meeting with pleasure. Miss Sue went
around telling all her friends that the
new butcher not only bad the heart of
a fiend, but he dared stand right up
to her and sass back.
, During that year they met time aft after
er after time. Sometimes the dog and the
cat were' along., and sometimes they
"were not. When they .were not there
was just as much cause for sarcastic
words as when they were. For In Instance,
stance, Instance, when the butcher was about
to pass Miss Smith's gate one day and
Miss Sue was hanging over It. he lifted
Jais hat and made a grand bow and
"I trust, Miss Smith, that1 your old
cat is dead and buried."
"Sir," she replied, wanting to hit
him In a new place this time, "I was
watching your walk as you came up

waddle. You walk like a goose, sir."
And they glared at each other and
glared and glared, and Sam finally
passed on, and Sue went into the house
with tears In her eyes, to be asked by
her mother? ; :
' "What's happened now?" V
"It's that Sam, Horton. He had the

him, to accept an invitation to Molly

but Molly had several good words for
him. Oh. how I hate him!"
"There there, daughter. Don't get
so worked up about It," soothed the
mother. "This is a strange world, and
It wouldn't be so very strange if love
came to you both by and by."
"Never f was the terrible reply.
Sam Horton was hurt by having his
walk called a waddle, but there was
nobody to console him. Therefore as
he sawed a beef bone in two he con
soled himself by saying:
"Darn that Smith girl! I will marry
her or die!"
One day Sam Horton had gone out
Into the country with his. horse and
wagon to -buy a calf. On" that same
day Miss Susie Smith had taken a walk
about, a mile and sat down on the
bank of the river. She was a bit wor
rled over the young butcher. It was
becoming more and more difficult for
her to find hard words to apply to him.
When last he had passed her his face
almost wore a smile.
She was meditating very deeply on
this weighty subject when Sam and
his cart and calf came in sight of the
road. He was driving like all butchers
.drive. The horse was at his best trot.
and the driver was looking around to
view the landscape. ,That horse was
headed in an almost straight line for
the girL She saw it and gasped. She
saw it and hastily rose up and rather
more hastily the treacherous soil under
her feet crumbled away, and she went
tumbling down the bank and landed in
the river with a great splash. She did
not know when the butcher pulled up
his horse and jumped from his cart.
She did not know when he came limp
ing after her. She did not know when
he dived after her and crawled up the
bank with her drippinsr form in his
arms. She did not know when hear-
rived at her father's gate with the
cheerful calf and the half drowned
girl In his cart.
In fact. Miss Sue Smith was not
much on the know for a good many
hours and then came back to her nor normal
mal normal condition to hear her mother say
to her father:
"There! That settles it You see If
they aren't married within six months.
All that was needed was something
And the dog and cat lived happy to
gether forever more.

A Sum In Arithmetic That Would Take
Many Lifetimes to Work Oat.
What is the highest 'number that
can be expressed with only three fig figures?
ures? figures? Such Is the question put by
the Journal of the Astronomical So Society
ciety Society of England. At first glance it
would seem that the number was 999.
But it is nothing of the sorti 999 Is far
away too small. What, then. Is the
number? 99 that is to say, the ninth
power of the ninth power of 9.
To ascertain what this number actu actually
ally actually Is we must refer to a table of
logarithms, for it would take several
lifetimes to do, the multiplication. The
number contains 3G9.G93.100 figures.
To write it out we should have to fill
23 volumes of 800 pages each, with
14,000 figures to a page, and the num number
ber number would be greater than that of all
the atoms in creation.
Henri Coupin points out In La Na Nature
ture Nature that there are stara so distant
that their light, traveling at 180.320
miles a second, takes a million ye'ars
to reach the earth. Astronomers have
taken this as a unit and called it a
"million light year." The number of
atoms in a sphere of platinum that
had that radius would be 225. fol followed
lowed followed by 88 zeros. Now. a sphere that
contained the number of atoms, ex; ex;-pressed
pressed ex;-pressed by the ninth power of the
ninth power, of 9 would have to have
a radius (in million licht years) of
1.239. followed by 123.231.000 zeros.

expressed by three figures.
