On a road on Long Island there is a dangerous spot where five main roads come together. It is said that more than 100,000 automobiles pass there on Sunday. A stocky-bui- lt little policeman, known to nearly all New York motorists, stands there all day long regulating traffic. His arms are continually going like semaphores, y. NAMEFEW WOULD RECOGNIZE But It Was Miguel Saavedra Who Gave the Immortal "Don Quixote" to the World. Unsatisfactory. a ghost story? You have read scores of them In the last few years, stories of seances and trances, of cross messages and spirits trying to "break through," but did a single one have marrow-chillin- g that quality we are justified in demanding from a real ghost story? What is .the matter .with our modern spirits, anyway? In a day .when the world has gone mad on the subject of efficiency, why do we find our ghosts so utterly Tncompetent, so unequal to their jobs? Their great trouble is their lack of definite purpose. There Is no reason whatever for their being, and consequently they are insipid, puerile, uninteresting things. They don't even call themselves ghosts; they are spirits, a much flabbier term, and the same general debility runs through their enThey have no wills of tire make-up- . their own. They wait respectfully till they are summoned by the very mortals they ought to terrify. They answer, like bell boys, to-- the call of such silly devices as ouija boards. Can you Imagine a Shakespearean ghost waiting to be summoned? Those were specters with minds of their own. They appeared when it pleased them to appear, uninvited and more often than not undesired. You might shout "Avaunt thee!" till you were hoarse; you might call them 'ifoul spirits" or any other uncomplimentary terms you could think of, bur until their job was done not one Inch would they budge. The modern spirit vanishes If you give him half a chance, but then he only came In the first place to oblige you, out of politeness and weakmindedness. Margaret L.

Successors to Jeffries Hardware Store Dealer In but he always manages to say something pleasant or caustic to passers--bThis little policeman Is very proud of his responsibility, and is imperious of gesture. At a busy moment on a Sunday afternoon not long ago a pedestrian started to cross the road among the turning cars. Out of the corner of his eye the little policeman had just noted the approach of a woman driving a flivver. "Stand back there 1" he called to the pedestrian. "Don't you dare to step off that curb!" This with an imperious wave of his hand. "StopI" he again ordered as the man started again. "There's a woman driving a car never can tell what they'll dol" At that very moment, while the policeman's back was turned, the woman driver became confused, and with a "dull plunk her car hit the officer squarely in the back, knocking him down and skinning his arms and face. Luckily, he was not run over. His dignity, though, was terribly upset Painfully rising, he brushed himself off, but said not a word to the woman. "Now," he called out, shaking his fist at the pedestrian on the sidewalk, "now, I reck'n you'll stand back when I tell you 1" Saturday Evening Post white-gloved -- He was born on October 0, 1547, and the age which gave Shakespeare to England gave Cervantes to Spain. In 1590 he made an Ineffectual application to the king for an appointment In America, "a shelter for the poor and a refuge for the unfortunate." From Seville he moved to Valladolid, and tradition runs that he was imprisoned there as a debtor or a defaulter, and that while In prison he commenced writing "Don Quixote," the second part of which did not appear until 1615. Three weeks before his death he formally entered the Franciscan order and was burled In the convent of the nuns of Trinity, Madrid. There, are two events In the history of Cervantes that are most remarkable : The first that, nominally though not actually, he died on the same, day as Shakespeare April 23, 1616-t- he difference In computing the calendar causing the apparent similarity. The second point of importance coupled with wonder is that no monument was raised to his memory till 1835, when a statue of heroic proportions was cast In Rome and set up In Madrid. Chicago Journal.

The answer to one and "all of these questions is, Uncle Sam. Every piece of paper money that goes out from the treasury and fails to return, profits .the government to the extent of its lace value. If it Is a gold or silver certificate the metal which jvas placed in the treasury for its redemption Is never called forth. If it is a federal reserve note or a national bank note, the securities that have been deposited as a guarantee at the time of its Issue, or their equivalent, remain In the treasury. So is there solace to the patriot who so loses his wallet that if it is not found by another its contents are applied to the expenses of the government If you fall Into the river and drown fortunate. The plant came by Its name from an old Roman custom. Whenever, a dispute was had with another nation an official called verbanerius was sent to discuss it with the offending country. This official wore a wreath of verbena. If war was decided upon an spear with a sprig of Verbena tied to It was shot into the enemy territory as a declaration of war. The Druids dedicated the verbena to their priestess, gathering it at 'the full moon. No one was allowed to touch it with the hands. It was uprooted by being tied to the foot of a young girl. Hungarian gypsies believe that if a cut Is made in the palm of the hand and a tiny piece of verbena leafls placed in It anl-th- e wound allowed to heal over the person will be able to open all locks with a single touch.

A wonderful test of endurance and pluck was the case of Capt. Charles Townley, another English cavalryman, who, in 1849, rode with dispatches from Belgrade to Constantinople, 820 miles. He remained in the saddle five days and 11 hours without rest, except on one occasion for six hours and the time consumed in changing to fresh horses. Twice the horse he rode dropped"under him from exhaustion. It was a historic ride, for upon the event of his arriving in Constantinople ahead of all other couriers hung the decision of the war, which by his accomplishing the feat was averted.

The United States government has been in practical charge of affairs in the seaporjb towns of Haiti for-- something over five years. Marines were originally sent to that island at the earnest soliciation of the most respecable people in the island. Before the marines came there seemed serious danger of a dissolution of civilized society. Armed robbers, many of them savages, were roaming the island, killing and burning at pleasure, and it was with the greatest difficulty that the authorities in the towns managed to repel the destroyers. The warships came, the marines were landed, and, almost in the twinkling of an eye, the situation changed. Banditry, if not put down, was driven back into the interior, commerce was resumed, the laws were enforced, and Haiti, which five years ago stood on the brink of an appalling disaster,has enjoyed a period of real prosperty.

All the young men of the city were also gathered and the maidens, one by one, were led to a block where the youth of the city could inspect them. The beautiful girls were sold first and every effort made to get as much as possible for their charms. The young men of those days were as eager to win the fairest maid possible by bidding as men of a later age were to win them by brave deeds or pleadings. As a result fortunes were In the hands of the auctioneer by the time the homely girls were reached. This fortune was then divided up and the auctioneering took a new life.

WOODSON LEWIS GRJEENSBURG, 6 the Progressive party in that year, affirmed that the Republican party had come to "a shameful end," and the election returns seemed to sustain his state- ment. Mr. Taf t, the Republican nominee, carried only the States of Utah and Vermont; the Progressive vote vastly exceeded that of the Republicans. But we all know that the Republican party did not die. The Democrats came into office; an .opposition party was necessary.' The Republican party lived and the Progressive party died. The Democrats have in 1920 met a defeat far less sweeping than that which came to the Republicans in 1912. And the Democratic party goes into opposition united. It will begin to gather strength from , the day the Republicans take office. Whether it will be able to carry the country at the Congressional election of 1922, or will have to wait until 924, or later still, no one can say, but any man with any experience should know that the Democratic party has met nothing but a defeat. 1 KENTUCKY. a Hg "g B It Another word of French and Latin birth is tart. Tart Is a culinary corruption of the word "tourte" (French), a slice of derived from "tartine," bread. Tills comes from the Latin "torqueo." to twist, hence the word "torta" means a hvist or roll of lyvad In the middle ages there was a deficiency in plates, and so, for a substitute, an undercrust of bread served as a plate. For a long time in Franco till undercrust of the "tourte." or "tarte." was the most common of plates. After everything had been served diners ate even their "plates." In time these dinner plates, made of dinner" rolls, came to be prepared specially and developed into a cakelike batter, which was filled with dainty food. Asd so they, were called tarts and tartlettes. and were served as a distinct dish. Gas Logic. Stradivarius Violins. Stradivarius was born in 164 and died in 1737.

Louisville Post. 1 a big C It seems strongly probable that the policies of the Republican party will be so conservative as to approach the line of Toryism. The radicals will, of course, be busy, and will try hard to stampede the Democrat ic party into the camp of radicalism as took place in 1896. This happening the Democratic party must avoid if they hope to win again in the near future. A Liberal party may win over the Republicans in 1924; a radical party can hardly win, and if it did win, its radicalism would certainly prove its undoing All the Democrats need to do to "come back" is to stand on the record they have made.

Perry, of Louisville, offered a bill in the State Senate providing for the abolition of party emblems upon official ballots in the State of Kentucky, the result aimed at being that all voters would have to be intelligent enough to find the names of the persons they wished to support, and could not escape all responsibility for selection by voting a straight ticket by simply placing a stencil mark under .alparty emblem. this plan in the future. In the meantime it may be said that the tendency to get away from "emblem voting" is nation-widState after State is providing for exactly the things the Perry bill would have provided in Kentucky, and, as an incident of the movement, States are getting the short ballot much more quickly than might otherwise have been the case. In Kentucky our official ballots are much too long. In State elections we calL upon the people to elect a large body of subordinate State officers, who should be appointed by the Governor. And it would'be much better if in the matter of county officers, the people were only called upon to elect the County Judge and Sheriff, and leave to the Cpunty Judge tha authority to name the County Attorney, County Clerk, and County Jailer. e. a Thedlord's BLACK-DRAU6H- T m I Purely Vegetable B liver Medicine P'9 BB HBBBBBBBBBBBB HB ommendations to the voters at the primary.

During the exhibition of a famous collection of art objects In New York, twenty-fiv- e years ago, the attendants In the gallery where the collection was shown noticed an unfamiliar and not very man spending a considerable time each day in front of Corbt's "Lake Nemi," one of the pictures In the collection. On making o Inquiries they found "he was a plumber, wholly unknown in the picture-buyinworld. It appeared later that he told his family he intended to buy the painting If possible and there was a fine family row over the matter. But he stuck to his plan and on the night the canvas came up for sale It was knocked down to him for $14,000. As long as he lived his family never forgave him for his extravagance. But- - they were forced to change their opinion of .his action later. For when the painting was sold after his death it brought 85,000.

The application anesthesia, of local which means the deadening of the nerve centers in the region of the operation without causing the patient to to herniotomy, lose consciousness, which included operations for hernia rind rupture, Is something entirely new in medical science. The first demonmoving picstration was a four-ree- l ture showing every detail of preparation and actual carrying out of the operation as performed by Doctor Kelly and his assistants in the Grace hospital in Detroit. This moving picture reel is especially useful in that one who understands the operation can stand and explain every move made to students and surgeons interested and also In that It has the advantage over the actual operation Itself In that the entire operation or any part of It can be reviewed as many times as is desired by the Instructor or student.

To the American visitor accustomed to the ordinary; comforts of life It is a constant source of wonder how the peasants and poor of the Balkans can live on the meager food they have. Poor cornbread, supplemented by goat's cheese or ordinary leek or onions, forms the diet of a large part of the village population. This slender regime produces robust bodies, strong muscles and rosy cheeks. The adage that bread is the staff of life finds Its best proof here. On the whole, the poor of the Balkan countries have an unusually hard lot In life. Their poverty Is practically permanent. Their plight seems to excite little sympathy from those who are well off. There is a calloused Indifference to the sufferings of the poor which strikes an American as almost heartless. In few if any of the Balkan states does make any provision for care of the poor. This work in the. past has been left largely to foreign relief "agencies end private charitable organizations. nt The delegates argued, that the duke's ancestors stole the lands, which he now refuses them permission to cultivate.

The governor, while recommending prudence on the pert of the peasants, promised to remain neutral in the dispute.
