"If a Man Die, Shall He
Live Again ."
It ia the age-old question, asked at
the side of every bier.
And what can one say in answer
Every one of us is taught in chifd
hood to believe in God and an after
"The world just happened," say
some men. "It created itself through
the operation of natural laws."
But who or what established the
natural laws and set them to oper

bricks on a corner lot, and let me
watch them arrange themselves in
to a house when you can empty a
handful of springs and wheels and
screws on my desk, and let me seo

into a watch it will be easier for
me to believe that all these thou
sands of worlds could have been
created, balanced, and set to mov

without directing intelligence at all.

And if He is a good God, is it
reasonable to suppose that He

an answerless riddle. We are born;
we struggle up through slow years
of development; and just as we have

It is hard for me to believe in a

Consolidation of several small en
terprises to make a single large one
is not confined to manufacturing
industries. Senator Arthur Capper,
of Kansas, who knows what he is
talking about most of the time, says
that more than a million acres of
Kansas farm lands are now owned
by corporations, and that recently
one corporation bought thirty farms
in the winter wheat region and
Corporate farming is more of a
business enterprise and less of a
mode of living than farming by an
individual is. According to Senator
Capper, these farm corporations
hire men who leave their families
behind, to go out in the Fall and put
in the crop. In Summer they hire
other men to come in and harvest
the crop. The rest of the year no
body lives on the big farms.
That seems menacing to the Sen
ator from Kansas. He thinks it will
result In depletion of the soil,
through lack of crop rotation, main
tenance of fertility and diversifica
tion. It is hard to believe that any
group of capital engaging in busi
ness on a large scale would be so
short-sighted as not to take those
things Into consideration and apply
the most modern principles of ag
riculture to their enterprise.
It would be interesting to make
a list of words which were Invented
to serve as trademarks for a par
ticular product, but which have
come into general use to describe
anything resembling the original ar-
ticle. "Celluloid" is one of those
words; it strictly means only the
product of the Celluloid company.
"Kodak" is another; the same be
longs to George Eastman's cameras
but we use it to mean any small
camera. When you say "Colt" ev
erybody familiar with firearms
knows you mean a large caliber pis
tol. Probably nine men out of ten
in the region where "five gallon"
hats are worn refer to their head
gear as "Stetsons." "Winchester" is
almost a synonym for "rifle." And
everybody refers to the abbreviated
masculine underwear which is now
in such general use by the trade
mark of the first of its kind, "B. V.
The adoption of such words in
general usage is one of the ways in
which language grows. A hundred
years from now probably, nobody
will say "dirigible" but everybody
will know what you mean by a
Human life is not getting any
longer, according to the men who
make a business of studying vital
statistics. The average life is long
er because a larger proportion of
babies live to grow up. Fewer peo
ple die in childhood and early life
than formerly, but the man who
reaches fifty-four, which is the av
erage expectation of life of every
new-born baby in America, has no
better chance of living to seventy
than his grandfather did; not so.
good, according to some.
Certainly the average life of a
President of the United States is
shorter than it used to be. Col.
Leonard P. Ayres of Cleveland, one
of the world's famous statisticians,
points out that Mr. Taft lived long
er to 72 than any other President
since Millard Fillmore, who dictl 56
years ago. Out of the first eight
Presidents Washington, who died at
67, had the shortest life; John Ad
ams, living to 90, the longest; the
others were 85, 83, 80, 78, 73, and 68
at their respective deaths. The av
erage life of the eight was 80 years
and a half. The four latest presi
dents who died averaged only 66 3-4
years of life each; McKinley and
Harding died at 58, Roosevelt at 61,
Harrison and Wilson each at 67,

You'll be sure you're seeing
double when you first see the
Loveless Quartette. But don't Bee
your doctor or oculist, until you've
heard the whole story.
Chautauqua Is headlining with a
quartette which Is not only seldom
equalled for noyelty and talent, but
have made a name for themselves
as Victor Recording artists.
The Loveless Quartette personnel
Includes H. M. and H. S. Loveless,
twin brothers, with their wives,
Lela and Lola Loveless, twin sis
ters. They are as much alike as
it is possible for two people to be
in looks, actions and dress.
While in Camden, New Jersey,
this year, the main office of the
Victor Talking Machine Company,
they made two Victor records which
were released in March. The rec
ords were sacred numbers and were
unusual in that the quartette sang
for them unaccompanied by any in
strument. The Loveless Quartette's program
Includes many novel and unusual
numbers. It Is filled with gay good
humor and fun from start to finish.
Solos, instrumental numbers, close
harmony quartette numbers, spright
ly jazz, old familiar hymns and
songs ot bygone days as well as
Hawaiian costume numbers follow
in rapid succession.
The Loveless Quartette are out
to entertain and they put their pro
gram over In a manner which leaves
no doubt about their doing it. They
are brimful of fun and infectious
good humor and seem to enjoy their
program as much as the audience.
You'll laugh with them, at them
and be strong for them after the
Hayes at 70, Cleveland at 71 and
Taft at 72.

The average motorist uses 571 gal
lons of gasoline a year. Every state
now imposes a sale tax on gasoline,
ranging from two to six cents a gal
lon. The highest rates are in Flor
ida, Georgia, South Carolina and
New Mexico. That is natural, since
those states have the largest high
way systems in proportion to popu
lation and taxable property values.
In Massachusetts, where the tax is
only 2 cents and distances are short

400 gallons a year and pays $8 to
