The proxi- mal end of the left ulna had evident- ly been fractured, since there is a marked widening of the articular foa- sa. Thes left humerus also show signs of injury in consequence of which it doubtless remained nmch weaker than the right bone. Vizchow thought that the condition of this an- cient man indicated rickets. If so, this would be the oldest evidence of rick- ets in man, but Schwalbe restudied the question and decided that there was no evidence of malnutrition and his conclusions are widely accepted. "One of the most interesting cases of ancient injury which has come down to us is a specimen of a lumbar vertebra of a late stone age man showing an arrow point deeply em- bedded in the visceral surface. Old- er injuries of a similar nature teach us that man was liable to such in- flictions incident to war and the chase. During this period wounds made by blows from stone hatchets arrow and spear points are fairly common. Many of these injuries as shown on the remains found in the ancient sepulchres show evidences of long standing and final healing, thus pointing, indistinctly to be sure, to some preventive measures being tak- en. Le Baron from his study of an- cient hun4an skeletons arrived at the conclusion that early man reduced and fixed fractures with great perfection, evidenced by the great numbers of well-healed fractures. Among 18 cases he examined, only three had healed badly. FULFILLING A PROPHECY Kipling's prophecy, "With the Night Mail," has already reached surprising degree of fulfillment. In this imagina- tive vision of the future Kipling men- tioned the wireless on airships and stressed the importance of light sig- nals on the ground to direct night flying. These two features have be- come vital in the development of air travel. The Postoffice Department in its attempt to establish non-stop coast-to- coast mail service depends upon radio direction finders, radio field localiz- ers and radiophones to guide the mail ships. Postal pilots have been quoted as saying that they would rather fly at night if they have the guidance of .radio than in the aytime when fog often lies in wait for them and forces them to fly low, dodging all manner of obstacles. They prefer radio appar- atus in good working condition to the lJest compasses, turn-indicators, dis- tance recorders "and drift-indicators. The compasses spin and most of the other apparatus becomes useless when the plane twists in a "tight corner" at a hundred miles an hour. High in the air, there are radio znessages that enable the flyer to go toward the electric beacon as thought traveling on a straight line. He can fly through the fog or high above it. As to the lighthouses for air trav- elers that Kipling picturesquely de- scribes, their wonder is already ap- proached in the high power search- lights that have become an acknowl- edged necessity on landing fields. As yet they are without the picturesque titles which he accords to them and bulletins are not yet posted, as he has related, concerning the unreliability of lights in the Mayalan archipelago on account of earthquakes, but in these details as in the rest of his prophecy, we have reality, Judging from the progress already made, his prophecy may be exceeded in that time.--St. Joseph News-Press. There is considerable truth in the following squib: Jack and Mary had been to church; and a day or two af- terward they were found in the nurse- ry whispering audibly. "What are you children doing?" their nurse asked. "We're playing church," replied Jack. "But you shouldn't whisper in church," admonished nuree. "Oh," spoke up "we're the choirW PRESIDENTS ON BIGOTRY On the subject of religious bigotry in this country some of our ])residents have spoken strongly. The News Bu- reau of le N. C. W.

I have neither patience to hear, talk or think of anything relative to this ]nat- ter; for I have squabbled and scolded, abused and ridiculed so long about vit to little purpose) that I am without common patience.--Statement made two years before Virginia Constitu- tional Convention. LINCOLN: When the Knok-Nothings get con- trol it (the Declaration) will read, "All men are created equal except negroes, foreigners and Catholics." When it cotnes to this I should prefer emigrating to some country where they make no pretense of loving lib- erty.--Lette, r to Joshua F. Speed, 1855. ROOSEVELT: Any political movement directed against any body of our fellow citizens because of their religious creed is a grave offense against American prin- ciples and American institutions.-- Oct. 11, 1915. TAFT: There is nothing so despicable as a secret society that is based upon re- ligious prejudice and that will attempt to defeat a man because of his re- ligious beliefs. Such a society is like a cockroachit thrives in the dark. So do those who combine for such an end.Dec. 20, 1914. HARDING: In the experiences of a year of the Presidency, there has come to me no other such unwelcome impression as the manifest religious intolerance which exists among many of our citi- zens. I hold it to be a menace to the very liberties we boast and cherish.- March 24, 1922. I TllIS IS NIPPON I I Tourists ill Ja]'lan once came over after a prolonged reading of Lafcadio Hearn and were disappointed because in Yokolmma or Tokyo they saw buildings that spoke of Paris or Lon- don. And Lafcadio Hearn was partly wrong, for though he lived here near- ly a ull lifetime, his eye saw only what it wanted to see. Now tourists come over and write books about Jap- anese politics and Japanese militarism and California. And these tourists are only partly right. There arc Japanese ]who, as a friend said the other day, 'r I egret that Japan came 50 years too I late." But still tbe saber-totivg Jap- anese is only partly true. He is still artist and has a miniature garden mid dwarf trees in his side window. When over here one mus accommodate him- self to an abandonment of all preju- dices and preconceived notions, for this is the country where there are no motor roads and where tunnels for railroads are as fine as any in the world; where rickshaws yet carry Japanese lanterns, but fishing cam- pans are equipped with the latest acetylene lights; where ships are coaled by hand baskets passed by wo- men, but nearby a battleship of nearly 50,000 tons is being succe.sfully com- pleted; where women and girls wear the traditional clogs and kimonos, but whose powder and rouge would reduce to envious despair the flapperiest flapper on Fifth Avenue; where there are shops so superior that you must suffer your shoes to be covered with canvas moccasins, but where streets are unpaved and muddy, even in To- kyo.

Yet the same dust that harasses the busy housewife and the motorist on the road is encountered by the avi- ator, and if anything to a greater ex- tent. It is true that the higher you climb the purer the air, but it is not 'the dust in his own level that annoys the aviator, but that in the atmos- phere beneath him. This dust is gen- erally of volcanic origin, and has traveled thousands of miles. The dust haze is capable of some marvelous tricks. For instance, it is possible for an airplane in the air to be perfectly visible to those on the earth and yet to the aviator the earth is completely hidden: Our motto, The Guardian in Every Home."

He was now allowed to selwe behind the counter. The other morn- ing a middle-aged lady, looking her full age, came in. "tIave you any cream for restoring tile complexion ?" she asked bashfully. Tommy was a wise lad. He eyed her two vivid cheeks with open ad- miration. "Pardon me, madam," he said po- litely, "don't you mean cream for pre- se]-cing the complexil?" And the deligtited lady bought six boxes right away. THE FOURRAGERE. "Fo' why dat French sojer done got dat telephone cord al drape' round his shoulder?" inquired one colored steve- dore of another.
