&s5c$s3sea09mewsssss&$ A Surprise CM) (Ccpyrisht, 1911, Western Newspaper Union.) The tropical sun was beating down -with relentless heat. Patrols were working their way slowly along on -the shady side of the street and sen tinels were standing under the pro tection of trees and doorways try ing to~imagine that this dreary round of duty in the heart of Manila was actual war. Everything else seemed to be asleep. The stores were closed and the streets were deserted by pe destrians and conveyances alike. The only signs of life came from the^pen doors of certain places of resort, where the American soldiers not actually on duty or taking a siesta, as every well regulated dweller In the tropics should, were smoking dungaree cigarettes and sipping the beer that made some place famous. This scene almost perfect calm was suddenly disturbed in the cuartel occupied by the regiment, by the irruption of a quilez loaded with sacks of mail and the wiry little regi mental chaplain, whose b...

I 1 I. i [i 1 i' it IndWfote Ink From Fungus FetMd Growing in France in Decaying Vegetable Matter The utilization of a common variety of fungus tor the manufacture of ink, now both costly and scarce, has been proposed in France, says the Path finder. The ink-yielding fungus which is often found growing in clusters where decaying vegetable matter ex ist*, in rich, damp soil is sometimes called the "inkstand" or the "ink bot tle" because of the fact that when it decays a black liquid is produced. Its cap-is elongated and bell-shaped, white at first and covered with a shining powder, later turning to gray with small brown scales on its top. A French scientific journal says that extensive experiments in the produc tion of Indelible ink from this fungus were once carried on by French bot anists. The fungi are simply placed in a bottle or other container. After standing for a day or two they change to a black pulpy mass, which, on being filtered through a folded cloth, yields a deep black...

SAYS GERMAN LACKS HUMOR John Galsworthy, the famous Eng lish novelist, who has written a great deal of the great war, thinks the great est German fault is lack of humor. He has this to say on the subject: "The German of today has no phil osophic humor, no power of self criti cism. Tnls Is a terrible national defect, whether emanating from the individual deficiency or from living un der a despotic bureaucracy organized as a state despotism." Galsworthy believes the allies will triumph through their sentiment and sense of humor. "There is in the blood of the American, Frenchman and Eng lishman a salt which inclines our peo ple to individual liberty and to those democratic forms of government which alone permit of enough phiJoso phlc humor and self-criticism to keep patriotism sober. The inspiration of an ideal that far transcends the idea of glory to our individual countries 1ms made this the most terrible of all wars yet waged. The Germans will lose chiefly through their disability t...

Colleges set the pace in sending no, in witnessingthe entrance of their choicest spirits into those camps and stations and cantonments and ships where they could be most quickly trained for military service.
