Most bicycles nowadays are made without these mud guards over the rear' wheel and cyclists do not carry them for use in occasional emergencies.

The guard comprises a fixed casing under the back fork with two telescoping parts, one of which receiVes the other, and both of which slide into the fixed part. Along the main casing and the second one are small openings through which knobs on the parts enclosed in them pass and -hold the whole structure firm.

SENTINEL- JOURNAL PUBLISHED WEEKLY. PICKENS, SOUTH CA.ROLINA. A college education is getting to be mighty expensive--for alumni. Still this Is just the weather you were wishing for last February. That wind blown suminer resort ad vertising begins to look very catchy. The summer girl was never more fascinating than she is this season. An umpire never reverses a deci sion, although asked to do so every day. A Sacramento minister defended Sun day baseball, and they say he struck right out. Worse than not being able to swin these days is not being able to go swimming. InidlItion to the wireless telegraph Chicago will now have )ermanently noiseless peddlers. hena itian bonsts about his old age it is geierally found that he has noth ing else to boast about. Chicago has twice as many tele phones as London. But then it has twice as much to say. A littsburg scientist says there is a microbe in ever'y kiss. Pittsburg ought to know that by this time.

14. PRIME MINISTER OF PERSIA The ruler of a country which has bee- so wedded to ancient customs as to fall far behind in the progress of the world may be ever so intelli gent and progressive and ever so de sirous of adopting modern systems, but he can accomplish little unless he can bring his advisers to his way of thinking. That is the position in which the young shah of Persia has found himself. Realizing that the financial system of his country is archaic and that there can be no real progress for Persia until the coun try's money .agairs and credit are put on a firm and modern foundation, some months age lie invited V. Alor gan Shuster and a corps of Americans to come to Persia and take full charge of the country's finances for a period of years. Mr. Shuster and his com panions are In Persia now, but both they and the shiah found great diffi culties in their way. The plan was bitterly opposed by many of the shah's most powerful advisers. Among these was Sepahrdi Aram, prime mini...

They talk nearly all the time, and when they are not talking they are thinking of the walk home. We don't like them.

FSECRETARY TO KING GEORGE Forty years in one job is not a bad record, yet this can be claimed by Lord Knollys, King George's private secretary, whose retirement is now imminent. He began his duties with the late king when Prince of Wales and has been the secretary of his son and successor. He originally intend ed to give up his arduous duties at the death of the late king, and it was well understood that he merely stayed on in order to "train in" Sir Arthur Bigge, upon whose shoulders the re sponsibilities of the royal secretary ship will now fall. Such a post requires not only hard work, but a keen knowledge of the world, combined with tact, judgment, decision and memory. It has been said of Lord Knollys that no one could hope to undertake his task with a tithe of the success which now at taches to it. The royal correspondence alone would frighten the average man. About o00 letters a day are addressed to the king, and the majority of these are attended to by Lord Knollys, assisted ...
