west of this city, which held their
fire during a few days of raiD, were
fighting with renewed intensity Mon
day. As a result the streams of wound
ed returning from the front increased.
Report as to the result do not agree,

wounded soldiers. Lesser fighting

forcements to Hwangtu on the Shanghai-Nanking

Washington, D. C. General Persh
ing passed to the retired list of the
army Saturday, satisfied that the mis
sion he set for himself when he turn
ed his face homeward from France
establishment of a national defense
system to safeguard the nation in fu
ture against any such confusion and
turmoil of impoverished preparation
as it knew in 1917-18 was well on
the road to accomplishment.
The former commander of the Amer
ican army in France was at his desk
as usual, although he had only a half
day longer of active service to give.
He found the officers of the war de
partment awaiting him to pay their
respects, and upon his desk a mass
of messages and letters of greeting
that gave witness to his high place
in world esteem.
He found also more complete re
ports testifying to the sucess of the
defense test Friday than were avail
able at midnight, when he finally con
cluded his part in the one-day tryout
of the national defense system that
he has personally fostered and super
vised through its initial phases.
He was happy as a boy over the
showing made all over the country
and at the evidence of patriotism
shown by the millions of men and
women who participated in the exer
General Pershing feels that the test
demonstrated conclusively that the
American people Qesired some such
democratic and workable programme
as has been devised under his guid
ance to be a part of the permanent
policy of the nation. He believes that
annual tests of the sort conducted Fri
day should and will become a part
of the nation's life. And he also be
lieves that there is no necessity ,for
congress to make appropriations to
pay expenses for such tests, ns the
voluntary contribution of services by
citizens of all ranks and occupations
everywhere is the keynote of the sys
tem that has been planned.
Additional reports on the test show
ed that the total number of regular
army troops mustered for the duy was
92.5S1; national guard, 167,633, and
organized reserves, 59,168.
"Volunteers to fill the ranks of
these forces exceeded 1,000,000," the
war department's statement said.
Millions of other citizens besides
the volunteers shared in the exercises,
and maiiy communities remain to be
heard from. The war department of
ficials are confident that the final
check-up will show that the full war
time strength provided for In the or
ganization tables of the three-part
urmy, more than 2,000,000 men, was
actually assembled during the day.
Yet this was accomplished, they point
ed out, without the expenditure by
the government of a single cent aside
from Ordinary peacetime appropria
tions for the army.

By tt. IRUINQ KINQ
IN SOME sections of the country
thpnp t n common sn oprsl i tion tins t
it brings good luck to have one's shoes
come untied. This is but another
phase of the ancient belief of sympa
thetic magic, that phase which has
to do with the doctrine of obstruc
tive knots In connection with other
current superstitions. Tie up a knot
and you tie up the man ; unloosen the
knot, you free the man. The cave
men's reasoning originating from the
fact that "Man, havin; come to as
sociate In thought those tilings which
he found by experience lo be connect
ed In fact, proceeded to erroneously
Invert this action and to conr-lude that
association In thought must Involve
similar connection in reality.
Of this sympathetic magic Professor
Frazersays: "Among the ignorant and
superstitious today It Is very much
what it was thousands of years ago in
Egypt and India and what it is now
among the lowest savages surviving In
the remotest parts of the earth." The
learned professor would appear to In
dicate the Ignorant as the class among
whom alone superstition prevails. But
a little observation will rhow that su
perstition Is confined to no one class,
but exists, though less ostentatiously,
among the cultivated and high pinned;
and he who most loudly boasts of his
freedom from its trammels is often
found to be secretly influenced by su
perstitions Inherited from the lost
ages. He has his pet superstitions
and hides them ; perhaps jams them
down Into his subconscious self and
flouts them. But they exist and they
are his, and they influence htm. The
savage and the peasant, on the other
hand, display their superstitions un
blushlngly. That is the only difference.
When it comes to a question of super
stition, "the colonel's lady and Julie
O'Grady are sisters under their sklne."
