TO VISIT THE SHARKS.
Ichthyologist Van Campen Heiliier, author
and field representative o f the American Mu
seum o f Natural History, has his idea that sharks
are harmless and that, excepting the white
shark, they will not attack human beings.
More than this, he is going to try out his idea by
taking a trip to the Bahama Island, where he
intends to swim among the sharks in order to
report upon their hospitality.
We have no doubt but that Mr. Heilner is
right about the white shark, otherwise known
as the carcharodon carcharias. The name sounds
dangerous, and if any man called us that we
would attack him, too, But, our information as
to sharks, nurse sharks, leopard sharks, hammer
head sharks, shovel nose sharks and says there
are others, including the land shark.
“ Most sharks are harmless,” declares Mr, Heil
ner, who seeks to prove it. W e wish him well.”
WHAT TO DO FOR ASHLAND
DtFrank Crane Says
If we will carefully take stock o f our worri-
ments we will find that most o f them are about
things that do not matter.
For a caption that
would be suitable at the head o f the list o f rules
I would suggest, “ What O f It?”
I suppose I had the best mother in the world.
She is entitled to all o f my respect and esteem
because she patiently put up with me all through
my childhood and cared for me until the day o f
her death. I can remember, however, that when
I went away from home in my younger days she
was always solicitous that I should wear clean
underwear and stockings because she said that
if there was to a train wreck and my body was
found, what would people think if they found
out I had on dirty hnderwear, as though I should
care about the state o f my underwear when I
was a corpse.
Much o f the care and trouble that mothers
take is o f the Mar.ha kind, for Martha was
“ careful and troubled about many things.”
Suppose the children do litter up the floor
and pick the flowers in the garden and tramp
into the house with muddy feet. Anybody who
knows children expects that and if they don’t
know children they are out o f luck.
It might be all right to see that your boys are
washed behind the ears and that their finger
nail* arc clean, Lul you should remember that
whi’ ' these things should not be left undone
there arj seme more important things.
important, for instance, that your children should
always think o f you pleasantly and gratefully.
Your affection for your son counts more with
him than your solicitude for his appearance.
It is well that the dandruff is brushed o ff your
husband's coat collar and that his tie is right
and his boots are polished, but if you do nothing
else for him but call attention to these peccadil
los by and by the idea will seep into his head
that you are nagging What he wants most o f all
is to keep his love and esteem for you and you
ought to work at making yourself worthy o f that
much more than to work at how he will look to
I do not mean to underrate the little atten
tions that should be bestowed upon those we
love, but I emphasize the fact that these little
things are o f small importance compared with
the greater matters o f life.
On one occasion it was said by a wise man
that the Pharisees paid tithes o f mint, anise and
cumin, but neglected the greater matters o f the
lawr. So we sometimes make the mistake o f look
ing for flecks o f dust when we should be ad
miring the landscape.
It is all a matter o f proportion. The principal
thing to learn in living is how to value things,
how to be particular about the essentials and
give small heed to the non-essentials.

after having been lost for several days.
mother broke down and wept.
“ He’s safe,”
some one remarked.
"I know.” sobbed the
mother, “ but he has a dirty shirt on right here
in front o f all o f these people.”
When the average citizen o f Ashland begins
to think about its future he realizes that his own
economic success depends, to a great measure,
upon the prosperity o f his neighbors, and the
growth o f his town.
To realize what he ought to do, in helping
Ashland forward, he has only to ask himself
what he expects o f his fellow citizen. What is
it? To trade with him to overlook the shortcom
ings in his business due to his location and
through their cooperation to him render them
Then, to be a loyal booster o f Ashland all that
is required o f the average citizen is that he treat
his neighbor, and his neighbor’s business, in the
same way that he wants his neighbor to treat
him and his business.
JAIL FOR SINCLAIR
Most people will endorse the decision o f
Justice Frederick L. Siddons that it is unlaw
ful for a defendant, during his trial, to em
ploy a detective agency for the purpose o f
shadowing the jury.
Justice Siddons, you will recall, is the judge
who had to order a mistrial in the Fall-Sin-
clair oil conspiracy case because o f alleged
statements made by one member o f the jury.
Thereupon, he began an inquiry into w’hat had
happened in order to decide whether to adjudge
t’ ose responsible for shadowing the jury in
c r empt o f court.
This he determined and last week sentenced
Harry F. Sinclair to six months in jail. An asso
ciate o f the oil magnate got four months and
W. J. Burns was given 15 days. O f course, ap
peals are pending, nut the chances are that Sin
clair will serve time before he gets through
with the infamous oil leases.
AMERICA, “ DANGEROUS!”
Sir Phillip Gibbs, famous wrar correspondent,
recently told an English audience that “ Ameri
ca is the most dangerous nation in the world
today because it is too highly organized and
volatile, so that over night a passion o f pity or
hate could sweep the country and rouse it to ac
tion which would be either beneficial or detre-
mental to the world.”
The Register believes that this English writer
spoke the truth. This country is “ highly organi
zed and volatile.” Its opinions are often formed
overnight and great sympathy or furious rage
could easily swee^ over its broa dacres in a night
Following that surge o f emotion there would be
clamors for action, which as he says, : .would be
either beneficial or detrimental to the world.”
This is the reason why the Register attempts
from time to time to call the attention o f our
readers to some o f the perplexing situations
existing in world politics. There are many news
paper editors who believe that their readers do
not car«' for what is called “ foreign affairs” and
while this may be true, we believe that there are
many intelligent readers o f The Register who
will try to be honest and just when international
matters are considered, and desire information
about th ’m.
