THE OLDEST SHIP
About the yeartlS30, when An
drew Jackson was . president and
wen the Monroe Doctrine was just
beginning to win a little recognition.
trim sloop named the Hudson sail
ed from New York harbor on tier
first voyage. She plied up and down
the coast for more than -40 years,
Even then her usefulness was not
over. She was taken to a' Maine
shipyard, refitted as a schooner, and
went back to work as the Joanna
Durgain. After 20 years or eo she
looked rather run-down, and was
again hauled out and refitted. She
saw service again for many years
Just how many it is hard to say
and then bad a few years of well
But the old ship lying at her old
dock still had life in her. The big
war set shipping men hunting every
where for seaworthy craft, and gave
new value to old bottoms. lAccord-
ingiy, the other day the Poanna Dur-
pain came into harbor at Bangor,
Me., once more, looking spick and
span, and able to do her bit still
along with any wind-jammer of her
size and build.
A man of 90 is pretty old. A ship
of that age is reckoned older yet. To
most people, a vessel is a frail thing
of but a few years' experience. Think
of the strength of a ship that can
stand the buffetlngs of the sea and
the wear and tear of cargo and dock
for nearly a century Steel would not
have stood itj but the timbers and
planks held and survived. It is a
triumph for the wooden ship.
The shipbuilders builded well in
those olden days, Just as did the car
penters who built the houses and
larns that have defied the weather
and use of a century or more. Is
there no more such workmanship, or
no more such material?
Both, perhaps, could l)e found If
the present generation had enough
respect for durability, and was will
ing to pay the price to get It a price
probably no higher In proportion to
other values than the older genera
THE V XDISTI RBKI) Tl'RK
A late dispatch from the Near Kast
Teads as follows: "Practically the en
tire male population of lArmenia w
be exterminated unless the Turk
ana tartars are checked by some
outside force." Jn fact the situation
is described by an American as "ter
nble beyond description." Yet our
administration, and England' and
France, professing to be doing
much "for humanity" are turning
deaf ears to the appeals for help.
Why are United States troops sta
tionea in blberla' and other parts of
Europe to menace a people with
whom we are not at war while a
whole nation, although a small na
tion, is being massacred iby the
Turks? This is one of the "secrets"
that congress Is trying to find out.

Amenia, although beaten to earth
aud una.'ble to help win the war
against Germany, Austria and Tur
key, Is really one of the entente, so
far as her views and sympathies are
concerned, therefore why is Turkey
permitted to revel In a dally orgy ot
murder? The present situation is
far from convincing that the great
war was "fought tor humanity," al
though some argue that the task is
finished when the treaty Is signed.
In order thai farm labor may lie
on a parity with other labor, farmers
of Indiana are demanding a ten-hour
day for "city industries." A hope
less request. The only way for the
tanner to meet conditions is to de
mand more for his produce and pay
better wages in order to get men
who will really do a day's work. To
good hands on a -farm are worth a
half dozen who shirk on the job.
Efficiency will never be attained un
less a little brain work and spirit of
fairness are thrown in both by em
ployer and employe.
Chicago and Milwaukee where
the Reds hold sway and Germany
still reigns need worry no longer.

Everybody has quit work and the
great game of "freeze-out" is on. It
promises to be a long game, too, for
many of the players have enough

Salt Lake City. T'tah, Oct. 2. In
dians of the Navajo reservation. San
Juan county, Utah, have made a
unique contribution to the American
Red Cross in six genuine Navajo
blankets. The blankets were recent
ly completed and given to the Red
Cross chapter at Monticello, county
seat of San Juan county.
What Is considered unusual is the
fact that they are genuine Navajo
blankets, and that they should have
come from the squaws on the reser-
tion to the Red Cross unsolicited.
The average time reqnlred in making
a genuine Navajo blanket, five by six
feet. Is 30 days, according to experts.
The blankets beat the red cross on
white and gray fields.

London, Oct. 2. German I'-Jwut
tried to bottlo up the British Grand
fleet in the Firth of Forth durlug the
latter part of the war, anys a London
paper which describes this as the
most ambitious tactical operation un
dertaken by enemy undersoil cm ft.
The scheme aimed at the blocking
off of the entrance to the Forth by
the sowing of a htg mlnefloM. Three
months of hard work were devoted
to the task by a considerable fleet of
submarines, the mines being laid In
the shape of a half-moon. But mine
sweepers had discovered the plnn.
and, as fnst as the mines were plant
ed, they were cleared away.
Jt is recalled that other similar at
tempts to trap the fleet were made
In 1918 In the Moray Firth, when
over 400 mines were laid, and In
HI at the Ornkeys. In round num
bers, on these three oecaetons, the
Germans laid 1,100 mlnea at a cost
of $1,000 each. The King Edward
was the only fighting ship that fell
vlotlm in these operations.
Enormous nembers of mlnea were
laid by the Germans off Harwich. It
was round tnat tnese fields were
spread regularly at ten-day Intervals,
so British sweepers occasionally left
portions of these waters tinswept so
that when the next batch of submar
ine came along they ran afoul of
their own mines. .
The task of clearing British water
of mines Is almost completed.
