Pleasant, Idaho, has a horse and he doesn't know whether to trade him, kill him or buy him an ear trumpet. The horse is a fine looking animal and he can travel --but. The other day Archie Carson, the mail carrier on R. F. D. No. 1, passed Bill on his out trip and Bill's horse was standing stock still in the road. As Archie swung back to town again, he passed Bill and the horse was standing still in the road. As Archie drove home to dinner he passed Bill on the edge of town again and stopped. "Is that hore sick, Bill?" asked Archie. "Not that I know of, answered Bill. "I ain't noticed no symptoms." "Does he balk?" continued Archie. "No, he don't balk. But he's so darn afraid I'll say 'whoa' and he won't hear me, that he stops every once in a while to listen." The Methodists now protest danc- ing at inaugural balls. Harding be- ing a Baptist, should take the hint. If he doesn't, the Baptists, too, will be protestants. Off with the dance! To be of "good standing" among some people, necessitates "sitting out" 9/few steps from such diabolical slides and glides. Where She Erred. Miss Gerty Gad called the hew f/ maid and said tartly: "If you don't improve, Maria, I shall have to dispense with your ser- vices!" "But I do my best," Maria insisted. "Yesterday afternoon you insulted a friend of mine." "Why,/I never even--" "When Mr Gumson called for me with his golf clubs he said you slam- med the door in his face." "Was that a golf bag he had?" "Yes." "I'm sorry, miss, but I thought he was an umbrella mender." Wait and ;ee--bandit murderers S]aughte and Young as future "trustees" at the penitentiary, driving the officers about In autos and finally a "get-a-wa," leaving a few more dead ones for a Garland county in- quest. That is, if they are not par- doned. Can't Get Rid of Them. A stonebreaker 'gUt by the roadside, disconsolately eating his bread and cheese and contemplating the heaps of flints awaiting his ministrations. A clergyman, passing by, gave him cheery greeting, and remarked on the large quantity of stones still to be broken. "Ugh," grunted the stonebreaker, "they stones be as bad as the Ten Commandments; you can keep on breaking 'em, but can't get rid of eml" Arkansas polleqd 69,v00 Republican votes, which men/as 69,700 prospectxw new postmasters. We shall, have some trouble now in the endorsement of our choice friends. One of the balcony boys at the Pal- ace on last Monday night, when the First Methodist choir appeared be- tween the films as a "sing" number, remarked to his companion, "A, gee*. let's go down to the , where we can see short skirts instead of short shirts." The choir girls appeared in white liien surplices. The Little Rock policemen opened their annual dance last Tuesday night with a short addresa by a local preacher. It was a real "foxtrot" in- vocation at that, so the "cops" say, and they should know, since they have a church Sunday once a year with pay. The main thing Tuesday night-was the big crowd and a most -'enjoyable and profitable evening. One Frank Gilmore is carrying around the body of his wife who 'died over a year ago, He is a traveling show man and has the body of his wife as a side-show for the outfit. Rather a grewsome exhibit we imag- ine, but it proves that Frank goes the average widower one better. He took her for better or for worse and is still taking her despite death and the pub- lic health laws. Love and Love. , He---"I love you." She-"But I have not a dolla in the world." Ho--"Ah, but you did not let me finish. I was going to say, q love you not." Shed"Indeed, I only meant to put you to the test. The fact is, I have a fortune of half million!" He---"Yes, but you again interrupt- ed me just now. What I mean to say was, 'I love you not for the sake oi your money.'" She---"So glad to hear you say,that. Itwas all a Joke about the half mil- lion." "AROUND THE HOUSE" When making cranberry jelly use a pinch of soda before straining the ber- ries. It will take only about half as much sugar and does not hurt the fla- vor or prevent it jellying. Here is an old, but good hint: When making molasses cookies try mixing the last thing at night, ready to roll out, and putting in the icechest or cel- lar till all ready to bake next morn- ing. They will be so cold it will take but little flour and are easily rolled, as they will not stick. If potatoes, beans or anything that is boiling on the stove boils dry the scorched taste can be entirely remov- ed if-one acts quickly. Remove cover and stand the kettle at once in cold water. This is much better than scrap- ing off what is scorched, as the flavor is apt to have peneterated even to the f top.

It requires: (1) Respect for or- der; (2) Unselfish regard for rights of others; (3) Contributions in the form 'f taxes for the common good. Q. In what ways may a citizen aid in maintaining a real democracy? A. (1) By votmg at elections; (2) By representing the people in office if necessary; (3) By taking pains to When baking cookies it is a good study and to understand public at- idea to change them a little. That is, fairs; (4) By paying his fair share after they are rolled out and in the of the expense of government. Q. What nfust a democracy provide pan ready for the oven, sprinkle some for its citizens? with coarse sugar; others stick a rais- A. It must provide: (1) Roads and in in the middle; others a piece of cit- ron and some sprinkle with fine coconut. I makes quite a difference in them, andt is little or no trouble. One-Piece Apron. _ neat large apron which entirely covers the dress is really a necessity at house-cleaning or canning time. It may be in long or short style. The neck is also a question of preference. The apron buttons at the back and has a narrow belt. "Stitch in Time." It not only saves nine, but if in a hurry a threaded needle kept handy ma 7 save you missing a car or train. Keep at hand needles threaded with white and black fine and coarse threads for they prove most conven- ient if you must sew on a button or mend a rent in a hurry. . To Prevent Shrinking. If mothers who make their chil- tiren's dresses would take the ging- ham, or any wash goods, put into hot salty water, let stay until cold, wring out partly dry and iron before mak- ing up, they will not shrink after they are washed. Treat wash dresses in this way also. If the goods is fine and 'will' last a season without washing, run a tuck in the bottom of skirt before turning hem, so when hem is finished t{lck is on the underside. Next season this tuck can be let out and will lengthen the garment without showing on the right side. These rules are very good for busy mothers. Salad Dressing. Yolks of 2 eggs beaten, 1 teaspoon- ful mustard, 1 teaspoon of salt, one- fourth saltspoon of cayenne, 2 table- spoonfuls of sugar, 1 cup of cream, one-half cupful of vinegar, whites of 2 eggs beaten stiff. Cvok in the dou- ble boiler until it thickens like soft custard. Stir the whites of the eggs in well.

Q. From what common dangers must a democracy protect its citizens? A. It must protect them from: (1) Sickness; (2) Law breakers, who do not respect the lives or property o1" others; (3) Loss of life and property from fire; (4) From foreign enemies who might invade their country and take away their freedom; (5) From injustice and unfair dealings on the part of their neighbors. Q. What means must a democracy use to protect its citizens? A. Itmust furnish. (1) Means for caring for sickness and preventing the spread of disease; (2) Guards to pre- vent crime; (3) Protection against persons who break the law; (4) Means of preventing and stopping fire; () An army and navy to protect its citi- zens; (6) Laws to prevent fraud or unfair dealings; (7) Gua'rds or offi- cers to enforce them.

AMERICAN PRIESTS GIVE !TESTIMONY ON IRISH ATROCITIES BEFORE AMERICAN CObIMISSION OF INQUIRY SITTING NOW AT WASItlNGTON, D. C. (By N. C. W. C. News Service) Washington, D. C., Nov. 18.--The testimony of two American Catholic priests who had been eye-witnesses of outrages committed in Ireland by British forces marked the openmg ses- sions of the investigation being con- ducted by the American Commission of inquiry into Irish atrocities which is now going on here. Fr. Cotter in Galway. The Rev. James H. Cotter of h'on- ton, Ohio, an associate editor of the TAKES PERMANENT CHARGE OF CENTRAL VEREIN BUREAU Editor F. P. Kenkel Resigns From "Amerika"--Devotes Entire Time to G. R. C. Central Society. Mr. F. P. Kenkel, K. S. G., for the past fifteen years Editor-in-Chief of the St. Louis Catholic daily, Amerika, has resigned the editorship of that paper in order to devote his energies entirely to the Central Bureau of the G. R. C. Central Society, the pioneer Catholic agency for constructive re- form in our country, founded m 1908. For some twelve years past Mr. Ken: kel has acted as Director of the Cen- tral Bureau, in addition to perform- ing his editorial duties. The Commitee on Social Propa- ganda of the Central Society, under whose immediate jurisdiction the Cen- Columbiad, testified that for more than an hour he was compelled to lay under the window ledge in a Galway hotel in order to escape British bul- lets. The Rev. Michael English of Whitehall, Montana, testified to being the object of a search by soldiery who entered his father's house in Lim- erick. Later he said a police inspec- tor took a picture of George Wash- ington from the closet and stampeit upon it, declaring, "This is what all Americans should get." Dum Bullets. The belief that religious prejudices or differences were involved in the Irish question was denied by Father Cotter, who was the final witness on the first day of the hearing. Father Cotter said the religious phase is be- ing put fo'ward by manufacturers in the nofh 6f Ireland to prevent their men from orgamzing for better work- ing conditions. He told of interview- ing a sister of the late Lord Mayor MacSwiney who showed him a dum- dum bullet which had been fired at her, but which missed its mark. The dum-dum bullets, 4ather Cotter averred, were brought nto Ireland by British soldiers. One of the most affecting stories of the day was that of Ddnnis Morgan, chairman of the Town Council of Thurles, who told of being denied per- mission to leave prison in order to go to the bedside of his five-year-old son, who was dying, or even to attend the funeral. Paroles, he declared, had been granted to some of the Irish pa- triots held prisoners by the British and in every case had been faithfully kept. Morgan told of how he had reared his son carefully: and been a constant companion to him. On the arrest of his father the lad took sick and rap- idly failed away. The anguished fath- er used every effort to secure a grant of three days, but this was denied him. Father English. Father English, who was the second witnessXto appear before the commis- sion, said be was born in Ireland but is an American citizen. He spent mot of the ,time from May 3rd to September 1st in Ireland, residing for some time at the home of his father in Limerick. He described a raid on his father's house made about two days before he sailed for America and related how soldiers in lorries came up the roads, surrounded the house and prepared to search it. A brother of Father English de- clineti to .leave the house to be searched and one of the officers, tap- ping his revolver remarked to him: "You come out or you'll get the con- tents of this." Father English, protesting that he was an American citizen, objected to being searched." He was told that he was on British soil, and his citizenship made no difference. The officers re- fused to show warrant or authority for the search. "I require you to produce your au- tral Bureau operates, has for some years past been anxious to bring about an arrangement by which Mr. Kenkel could devote his entire time to the Central Bureau. At the recent general convention of the Central So- ciety, held in San Antonio, Tex., the Executive Committee of that body added its endorsement to such a pro- posal and a short time later Mr. Ken- kel decided to take the step men- tioned. The Central Bureau of the Central I Verein, located in St. Louis, Me. (Temple Building), has been known for a number of years to a wider cir- cle through its press letters sent to Catholic papers throughout the coun- try, while of late it has attracted par- ticular attention by its Soldiers' Wel- fare work, its agitation,'supported by the distribution of literature, against the Smith-Towner educational bills, and by its labors for the relief ofthe destitute in Central Europe.
