Women and War.
War is a man's game, but there have
been Amazons. In all wars the wives
and mothers of the warriors have ac
quired masculine austerity. The Spar
tan mothers told their sons to bring
back their Bhlelds from the war or be
brought back upon them, and corre
spondents in Germany have reported
that the German women witnessed
the departure of those dearest to thom
for the front with tearless eyes and
grim determination, not desiring even
to see them back unless they returned
victors. There is the story of the arls
tocratlc French mother whose three
sons were killed in battle not long
ago. A messenger came to bring her
the news, and faltered badly in telling
the sad story. But the mother did not
break down. A look of rapture is said
to have lit her face as she said: "My
sons all died for France. , I am satis

Among the Indians the thunder bird
stands for authority, dignity, arbitra
tion and, most important of all, peace.
There are many who believe that the
emblem of a bird with widespread
wings has been appropriated by the
Europeans from ancient America. If
so, it is an unfortunate perversion

and peace the banner which leads to

"Sleeping" Bullet Least Dangerous.
Physicists have shown the world of

diers must be regulated if fewer cas
ualties are to result Close upon the
enemy's Are or far away result in the
most unhealable wounds; midway be
tween the range of the rifle bullets Is
the most satisfactory position.
The reason Is that the distance
which a bullet travels Is divided Into
three parts, the first distance the bul
let travels in a wabbly manner, either
up and down or sidewise; the middle
distance It "sleeps," or moves on an
exact plane, and the third distance,
being partly spent. It wobbles in a
serpentine movement again. When the
bullet "sleeps" It cuts a clean hole
through the part of the body hit, but
when It Is on the first or final distance

er up or down and Is likely to remain

A REED-FRENCH DISSATISFIED CUSTOMER IS UNKNOWN.
We do not claim to have sold the most pianos In Portland and vicinity In the

within that time, we ean show a very high percentsite. There may be au element
of bombast in this statement, but we have tried hard to make every customer a
friend regardless of the si.e of his purchase. A Reed-French dissatisfied customer
Is unknown. The thousands of peoplr who have bonght from us In the last tea

THE WAY WE GET OUR BUSINESS
