Cardinal Gibbons today will complete fifty-seven years as a priest
and thirty-two years as a cardinal. In accordance with custom the
double anniversary will be observed with a special mass in the ca
thedral at Baltimore. Next month His Eminence will enter upon, his
eighty-fifth year, having been born July 23, 1834.
Both mentally and physically he is remarkably vigorous for a
man of his years. V
He shows the same keen interest in world happenings that has
made him one of the best informed men in America.
Since the United States entered into the war he has given a large
part of his time and attention to the various movements having to
do with the successful prosecuion of the conflict.
- He is one of the most remarkable men of his years in the United,
States, or in the world.
THE BUSY DEVIL.
Like most men of culture, Sir R. B. Finl ay, British Lord High
Chancellor knows the Bible and can quote aptly.
Referring to the recent extraordinary manifestations of German
rage in the bombing of hospitals, he said they reminded him of a cer
tain person concerning whom it was written that his 'wrath is great
because his time is short." The cable dispatch does not do the fit
ness of the quotation justice, however. Look it up and you will find
it admirably suited to recent happenings. It is in Revelations xii:12:
."Woe for the earth and for the sea, because the devil has gone
down unto you, hvaing great wrath, knowing that he hath but a
That explains more than the hospital bombings it explains the
frenzied drives on the west front and the raid on our Atlantic coast.
CONCERNING HELL AND PARSONS.
- (From the Topeka Capital) " ' '
"Germans! I say to hell with the Germans," says the Rev. Dr.
Charles A. Eaton, "If you ever come across a man with a bomb
don't say to him, 'Come outside, brother and let us pray.' Don't slap
him on the wrist. Truss him up, take him out to the meadows, place
his damned-bomb on his chest and then stand off a few feet and
watch him get blown to hell." "We have heard a number of discus
sions of the situation. It seems to us the Rev. Dr. Eaton covers it
as well as anybody. Our respect for the clergy continually increases.
We look forward to the time when the clergy will come to know and
place a proper valuation on the two indispensable words in the Eng
lish language. , - - - :
, THE KAISER'S TALK TO HELL.
The Kaiser called the devil up on the telephone one day.
The girl at central listened In to all they had to say:
"Hello." she heard the Kaiser's voice, "Is Old Man Satan hornet
Just tell him It Is Kaiser BUI that wants him on the phone.
The devil said hello to Bill, and Bill said "How are you?
I'm running- here on earth a hell, so tell me what to do."
"What can I do." the devil said, "my dear old Kaiser Bill,
If there's a thine I can do to help you. I sure will."
The Kaiser said. "Now listen and I will try to tell
The way I am running, on earth, a modern hell.
"My army went through Belgium shooting women and children down.
We tore up all her country, and blew up all her towns.
I've saved for this for many years and I've started out to kill;
That It may be a modern Job. you 1 eave that to Bill.
My Zeps dropped bombs on cities, killing both old and young.
And those the Zeppelins didn't get we've taken out and hung.

The Belgians, darn them, stopped us. and wound n't let us pass.
My submarines are devils; why you should see them fight!
They go a-eneaklng through the seas and sink a ship on sight
I was running things to suit me till a year or so ago.
When a man named Wood row Wilson wrote me to go more slow.
He says to me. "Dear William, we dont want to make you sore.
So be sure and tell your U-boats to sink our ships no more.
We hare told you for the last time, so dearBlll, It's up to you.
And If you do not stop It, you will have to fight us. too."
I did not listen to him, and he's coming after me.
With a million Tankee soldiers from their homes across the sea.
Now, that's why I call you. Satan, for I want advice from you.
And I know yon would tell me Ju st what I ought to do.
"My dear old Kaiser William, there's not much for me to tell
Por the Tanks will make It hotter than I can for you In bell.
I've been a mean old devil, but not half as mean as you.
The minute that you get here I wilt leave my job for you.
I'll be ready for your coming and I'll keep the fires all bright.
I'll have your room all ready when the Yanks begin to fight:
For the boys, Jn Khaki will get you. I have nothing more to tell
Hang up the phone and get your hat and meet me here In hell."

The American Railway Express
Company Is the official name of the
new corporation which today takes
over the operation of the express bus-.
iness of virtually all the railroads
of the United States. The merger
embraces all of the prominent ex
press companies heretofore doing
business, and was brought about as a
war-time measure and in conformity
with a plan laid down by the federal

wagons, stations and cars.
The American Railway Express
Company is to serve as the express

erating privately. ;but under con
tract to turn over 50 per cent of
their gross revenue amounting tq
more than $250,000,000 a year to

express routes and better service to
the government and to the public.

I hav noticed In your paper, as

that I would probably be a candidate

I wish to state for the benefit of
the general public that I am in no
sense a candidate for the office of
county judre. t
I have been approached by a great
many people In various parts of the
county asking me to run for county
judge. I have always told them
that I don't care for the office. I
have enough business ot my own to
keep me busy. I reel, however, that
I would not show the aprecitlon of
the honors already bestowed upon
me by the voters of this county, by
electing me for two terms to the of

be a strong sentiment from among
the voters of this county asking me
to do so. Under such conditions. I
would be a candidate for the office;

strong before I would allow my name
to come before the people for the of

I made a most humiliating discov

the bill which Dicky had neglected for
so long I had given the man all the
money I had In the house. Tomor
row the "butcher, the baker and the
candlestick maker' would call for
their weekly bills, and I had nothing
with which to pay them. I mutt
either ask Dicky for money or put
off the tradesmen tomorrow.
Either of these courses was intol
erable to me. I always have a hor
ror of a debt, be It ever so small. It
is bred In me. My little mother's
early married life before my father
ran away, was a long nightmare of
debt and the duns or creditors. One
of my first memories is my mother's
despair at having no money with
which to pay a pressing creditor. I
cannot remember when I made my

Independence had intensified an

that Dicky, when we started to

with any other partner. I had
planned to discuss with him whst
sum we could afford weekly for
housekeeping expenses. Then I had
expected that he would hand me that
sum each week without rurther dis
cussion. But Dicky's plans evidently did
not run along the lines which ap
pealed to me. The day we came In
to our little home he had taken my
purse from my hand, stuffed some
bells inside, and said carelessly:
