Billy, everyone should know. Is
one of the Oregon Statesman's
comie characters. He was caught
on a little boat called "Ambition

the other day. He sent out a sea

sign of success.

' the editor of . the paper telling in
50 words or less. Just how he
might best do it. So many an

first comes from Route 1, and
reads: ' ' . ; " ".
"The way Billy can make a mil
lion,, is to go on a summer vaca
tion to some Island' in the Pacific
and find a little hut; take up the
floor and find some papers which
direct, him to a tunnel where he
finds hurried treasure; enough In
gold bars and diamonds to make
him $1,000,000.01. So they get

Highest honors, however, go to
the writers of the following:
"Dear Sir:
"A way in which Billy can make
a million dollars is "work, work
and never shirk."

Whether Billy makes, or made,
his million -some other way, most
boys and most girls, who drive
their own cars some day, will have
made their money on that- form

become very wealthy just because
they did that. All really success

New Profession Is Opened in

Stream of Ice Cold Water Is
Not-Affected by South
em Drouth
ATLANTA . Ga. Georgia and
the southland are recovering from
. a drouth of unprecented severity
during which many streams and
water sources dried up and all rec
ords for aridiyt were broken, but
.through it all, a cold stream of
pure water continued to flow from
the side of a beautiful foliaged bill
on' which, some sixty years ago,
was located the Andersonville mil
itary prison, of the Southern Con
federate army. -
This is "Providence Spring," In
Sumter country. Local history
has it that in the closing days of
the war between the states, that
section suffered ; from the effects
. of a drouth which dried up all
mall streams and wells? leaving
no water supply , for th emany
thousands of Federal prisoners of
War' confined within the over
crowded and fever-stricken camp
Quinine had been contraband of
war and none was available to re
lieve the burning fevers which
created an Insatiable thirst for wa-
' ter.
These conditions existed for
days while the men. In their delir
iHm, madly scratched holes in toe
ground with their bare hands In
their attempt to strike water. Fi-
sally, after having reached the end
of their resources and too weary
and exhausted to put forth more
physical effort, they dropped to
their' knees and prayed to God to
send them relief. ! jl .
While they were still praying,
a bolt of lightning struck the hill
side. Just outside the "dead line",
and a fountain of sparkling, cold
water gushed forth to cool the
parched tongues whose prayers
had been heard.
Today one may visit the prison
camp and find the holes marked
off and enclosed within iron fences
and the staked off ''dead line"
which was extended to bring the
spring within its confines, bear
ing evidence to the miracle that
was performed there in the 'six
ties. The fountain has been hous
ed in an ornate work of masonry,
in which is inserted a bronze tab
let Identifying it as "providence
Spring," and relating the above
story. . .. . . ,
Adjoining the camp j is Ander
sonville National Cemetery, cover
ing an area of 120 - acres and
where rests in eternal peace, near
ly 14,000 of the boys in blue who
succumbed to the ravishes of 'the
fever and other diseases. Virtually
all of the names on the plain stone
slabs are preceded by the word
"Private," with here and there
one marked "unknown." -
PARIS Marriage brokerage
has been almost entirely displaced
by divorce brokerage as a profit
able profession in Paris.
American fathers and mothers
are extremely reluctant to provide
the dot necessary to pay , the .mar
riage broker's fees. But wealthy
husbands and wives who want
their freedom are willing to pay
liberally for fast action.
The brokers work on the steam
ers coming over from New York
and haunt the fashionable hotels
along the Champs Elysees and the
Rue di Rivoti.
Negotiations are carried on at
tea dansants and at the merry
dinner dances at Ciro's and the
Perroquet, which wealthy Ameri
cans frequent.
The methods are very similar
to those of the American ambu
lance chaser. Divorce brokers
make the acquaintance of all
Americans on the Paris-bound
boats who look unhappy. Casual
references are finally made to the
speed and lack of publicity with
which Mrs. Gold Pots got her di
vorce in France the previous
"Oh, yes, it was that wonderful
lawyer, Mr. X., who turned the
trick. He is so clever and has
never failed to get speedy re
suits. And he is -such a gentle
man and so discreet."
Mr. X may be either a Frenchman
or an American. The brokers pay
little attention to nationalities.
Many of the brokers are divorcees
themselves and supply personal
testimonials as to the painless and
effective methods of the attorneys
they are touting.
An American woman of consid
erable wealth, who has never mar
ried, remarked to a group of
friends In a hotel de luxe on the
Place Vendome:
"A mere spinster isn't in it in
Paris any more. The dancing men
pay attention to the married wo
men and try to get them to hit the
divorce trail. It pays. It isn't
necessary for 'married women to
hire Jlggilos any more. The jig
gilos have ail gone to work for the
divorce lawyers. I think I shall
apply for a Job myself."
Competition has become so keen
that one enterprising broker is
trying to get steamship lines to
announce special accommodations
for divorce seekers in the third
class, so more less wealthy Ameri
cans may be induced to avail
themselves of the French courts
Painless divorces now are ad
vertised on the billboards of Paris
along with painless dentistry.
There are special divorce newspa
pers and all Americans, immediate
ly upon their arrival in Paris, re
ceive announcements from bureaus
which offer satisfactory settlement
of all marital difficulties.

the publication of the weekly
events of his troop . Of course
If your troop isn't doing anything
we won't hear from you. In order
to insure publication your troop

the guests of the Portland Scouts.
Twelve Eagle Scouts will be pres
ented their Eagle 'Badges from
Governor Walter M. Pierce. The
Scout from this council who is to
receive his Eagle Badge is Charles
Campbell of Dallas.
Charles has made splendid ad
vancement in Scouting during the
past two years and. is well quali
fied to receive this, the highest
rank in Scouting. The Scouts
and officers of the Cascade Coun
cil extend to him their hearty con
gratulations. We feel sure that
he will show the true spirit of
Scouting in being of valuable as
sistance to the younger Scouts
who are coming up, step by step
through the ranks of Scouting.
Scouts Will Camp
The winter camp of the Cas
cade Council will be conducted
from December 26 to 31. Arrange
ments have been made for the
camp to be held at Neskowin, this
will be a splendid location for
the winter camp as the cabins
will be well heated so no matter
how hard Old Man Winter may
hit, the scouts will be assured of
a warm dry place to eat and sleep
Here you may have all the out
door activities of Scouting, prac
tically the same a3 those of the
summer camp with the exception
of swimming which we will pass
up this trip. It is expected that
there ill be a large attendance
and we will have to limit the
camp to fifty Scouts, many will
want to attend and those who get
their applications in first will be
the lucky guys.
The cost will be about 15 0ft
which will include all meals, rent
of cabins and transportation to
and from the coast. This camp
is open to Scouts of Corvallis, Al
bany and McMinnville as well as
Salem. If you wish to take ad

- Marche Slav ' '
Tschaikowsky,, . Peter Iljltcb
(1840-1893) h WoUnsk, Russia,
Tschaikowsky has immortalized
the Russian folk songs, having
made use of them in nearly all his
works, v In the "Marche Slave" he
has used several of these- folk
tunes for his themes. The com
position was inspired by: the Ser
bian rebellion against the oppres
sion.of Turkey in 1876. Russia
was forced to come to .the old of
Servia in . 1877, with the result
that Servia won her independence.
Tschaikowsky in 1878 composed
the "Marche Slave" as a represen
tative march for all the Slav races.
The "Marche' begins with the
pounding of drums a call for the
Slav people to battle. Then the
strains of a folk tune are heard
in weird minor as if prophesying
war. The oboe is used here to
give the wailing chant effective
ness, and the theme is then tak
en up by cornets, the drumming ac
companiment stll Ibelng used
Now after a.stormy commotion in
the woodwinds the chant is again
heard,-this time with all dignity.
Gradually this dies away in the
distance and the first part closes
A new rhythym now appears, a
joyous dance motive, a forecast of
triumph In battle. In the great
climax Is shown a combination of
dance rhythym under which the
Russian national air is heard and
then the national air breaks out In
full orchestra. The finale, a move
ment of unrest In preparation for
the coming battle, brings this re
markable number to a close.
