A MILLIONAIRE CLERK Stephen T. Mather, millionaire, has a theory that there is a lot of fun in doing things for other people when one has done all that is neces / 'ary for himself, and that no partic ular credit should flow to him for so doing. ". Hence Stephen T. Mather, million aire, is a $2,750 employee of Uncle Sam. He likes his job, even if it does not show up as very large in the pub - lic eye. Mr. Mather, becoming tired of newspaper work after fvie hard years as a reporter in New York, broke into business ltfe and made his million or so as a manufacturer. Having got all he needed and never having be come money-mad, he thereupon be came very active in trying to improve soelal conditions in his home city of Chicago. And this brought him, in February of this year, to appointment as assistant to the secretary of the in terior at Washington. Now, Mr. Mather happens to know all about national parks, scenery, the mountains and the wilds. He knows every glacier, creek, mountain and v...

"There was a mysterious afair last night, signorep" "Oh!" I eclaimed. "Anything that interests us!" "Yes, signore," replied the tall, thin Italian consular clerk, speaking with a strong accent "An English steam yacht ran aground on the Meloria about ten miles out, and was discov ered by a fishing boat that brought the news to harbor. The admiral sent out two torpedo boats, which managed after a lot of difficulty to bring in the yacht safely, but the captain of the port has a suspicion that the crew were trying to make away with the vessel." "To lose her, you mean?" Francesco nodded. "Sounds curious," I remarked. "Since the consul went away on leave things seem to have been humming two stabbing afrays, eight drunken seamen locked up, a mutiny on a tramp steamer, and now a yacht being east away-a fa...

WELSH COAL KING Any American who in the course of the next year wishes to sell war munitions to the allies should get in communication with David Alfred Thomas. for he is the man Lloyd George has sent over here to attend to that business. In England they call David Al fred Thomas the "Welsh Coal King." Within the past eight years he has become the active head of collieries in South Wales at which 50.000 men find employment and whose output exceeds more than one-quarter the production of the entire field. Partly because he is Welsh, but chiefly because of his liking for mat ters that have a mass of detail about I them, David Loyd-George at once be thought himself of "D.

HEADS MILWAUKEE SCHOOLS Mrs. Meta Berger, Milwaukee's first woman president of the school board, while making jelly in her kitchen, told what she expected to accomplish in regard to Milwaukee's schools. Mrs. Berger is the wife of Victor L. Berger, the first Socialist elected to congress. The new school head turned the gas low under the jelly, motioned the reporter to a chair, and, with one eye on the boiling kettle, outlined her plans. "My aim as president of the board," she said, "will be, as it has been since my election to member ship on the board six years ago, to work for the greatest good to the greatest number; to give the best and broadest chance for educational de velopment to all the children of all the people. I want our boys and girls to have every chance. I believe that R' s should be the only object of a school board. In order that the children shall have this chance. I am open to conviction on all matters in connection with the schools and education." Mrs. Berger befo...
