Jackson by No Means Lacking in Education John Quincy Adams declined to at- tlmd the ceremonies at Harvard col- lege in 1833 when the honorary de- gree pf doctor of laws was conferred Ipon Andrew Jackson, then President of the United States. His reason, according to his diary, was that "as an affectionate cblld of oar alma mater, I would not be pres- ent to witness her disgrace in con- tarring her highest literary honors pon a barbarian wbo could not write a sentence of grammar and hardly could spell his own name." Adams' estimate of Jackson has been challenged by Dr. Archibald Hen- derson, who tells In the Raleigh (N. (.) News and Observer, the result of exhaustive researches regarding Jackson's early life. He finds that Jackson, as a boy, received a better education than the average child of his Jtatlon in life. Later he attended Waxhaw academy; le continued his studies in that part of Carolina known then as New Ac- quisition. An account of the life of lucy. Francis Cummins, once a teacher at Bethel, S. C., shows that Jackson was one of his pupils and there Is evidence that for a short time Jackson attended Queen's museum in Char- lotte, N. C. Visitor Surely Had Impressed Small Boy There was great excitement In the ,Tones home out on Long Island. A lal lord was paying them a visit. Ige was now sitting at the dinner table and Mrs. Jones fluttered as she urged my lord to eat this and that. Mr. Jones, swollen with a sense of the great honor bestowed upon his housebold, began each sentence with lord and ended It the same way with t worshipful not to say reverential, air. As a special privilege--thinking that ]he might talk about It in his maturer 7ears,--little Willie Jones, aged five, had been permitted to attend the func- tion on condition that he refrain from talking unless spoken to. Mindful of this pledge, the little fell, sat in silence, his large round eyes fixed In a stare upon the face and form of the stranger. But when he saw the visitor's eye samlng hither and yon across the laden table as though seeking some- thing, an innate sense of hospitality moved him to speak. "Mom l Oh, morn!" said Willie. "What is it, Willie?" asked the laother. "God wants a plckle."--Everybody'a Magazine. Columbus' Debt to WiFe If it be true that there is a woman Jn the background In every notable achievement, there seems to be Jus- Ufication In calling Dona Fellpa, the wife of Christopher Columbus, that in- fluence in the life of the man who aa later to discover the western m world. When Columbus talked to her about his exploration enthusiasms, she was sympathetic and his ambitions apl)ear to have foutld grateful nurture at their fireside. There Is a tale of how Dons Isabella, Columbus' nmther-ln-law, pro- duced an old box containing maps and logs--piously kept relics of her hus- band's. It may be that something found In this box prompted in Colum- bus the conception, later to become a tming article of faith, of a land be- yond the horlzon.--Kansas City Times.

Odd Method of Travel Called "Ride and Tie" Salmon P. Chase, Lincoln's secre- tary of the treasury, showed financial ability early in his life. When he went from his New Hampshire home to Worthington, Ohio, to live with his uncle, he was acompanled by an older brother as far as Cleveland, where he was given instructions as to how to reach Worthington. Finding that he had to wait several days for a coach to take him as far as Medina, he obtained a canoe and earned several dollars by ferrying people across the Cuyahoga river, relates J. H. Gal- bralth, Ohio historian. In Medina he met two young men from Worthing- ton, whom he was to accompany on their return trip. They had come on horseback, so young Chase was Intro- duced to the "ride and tie" metlod of travel. One of them would mount the horse and ride forward several miles, of course outstripping the one who walked. Then the' rider would dis- mount and tie the horse by the road- side and press on by fool The other would reach the horse, mount It and passing his companion, would tie it and go ahead on foot. In this way the horse was spared a double burden and the travelers made good speed. O? the Old School An old gentleman and a very young lady arrive simultaneously at the ele- vator In a large hotel Both are French (This Is a true story.) "Room for one," says the elevator boy. The old gentleman, with a courteous bow and a murmured "Madamel" stands to one side. "Oh, not at all," declares the young lady smilingly. "I am young, and I'll walk up." "Precisely, madame, you are young, whereas I belong to the period when 'one am'rendered one's place to a lady. So you must understand, my dear, that I am too old to take yours." The young lady smiles and steps Into the elevator--but forgets to say "Thank you.'From Le Figaro Heb- domadalre, Paris. (Translated for the Kansas CRy Star.) Engine Cylinders The Society of Automotive Engineers says that all radial or rotary engines, as commonly used In airplanes have an odd number of cylinders around a single crank. The firing order skips alternate cylinders, and will have oc- curred in all the cylinders In two com- plete revolutions of the crank or cyl- inder, depending on whether the en- gine is a fixed or rotary radial engine. Engines of this type having an even number of cylinders, wuch as 10 or 14, are composed of two banks of five and seven cylinders, respectively. Radial and rotary engines are characterized by having the cylinders disposed at equal angular intervals around a com- plete circle. Mankind's Heavy Debt to the Humble Burro The burro is a plodder, but be hus done much toward development of -America, especially in western statps, asserts a writer in the Kansas City Times. He has carried thnber, plaster and nails Into the desert for houses, packed gold and silver and saved men's lives. Virtually every Important ore de- posit between Denver on the north and GuanaJuato on the south, the Mis- souri river on the east and Callfornht on the west owes Its discovery to the assistance given to man by the burro. He has several characteristics that qualify him for a hard life. He can be driven, but not led. He knows u straight line is the shortest distance between two water holes, and he can find and follow that line In country he, has never seen before. He can live orl vegetation that a horse or mule or camel would not attempt to eaL He knows more about man than man knows about him; any prospector will admit this, declaring his own pet burro has more sense than any human partner he ever had.

Dominion Sought as the Perfect Freedom The history of tile struggle for lib- erty In tile deeper sense is thus not merely the history of wars fought and battles won in the name of deliverance from oppression. It Is tits history of the struggle of mankind for dominion; and dominion Is only another name for the perfect freedom. Man has achieved not only freedom from the beast, but dominion over it, not only freedom from enemy man but dominion over him. He has achieved at least a partial safety from the ele- ments, and exercises at least a partial dominion over them. He has learned to divert and dominate the lightning; he bas made fire and water his slaves, and only on occasion do they rise against him ; he has subdued the hard earth with the share, and converted its minerals and metals from dead weights into the ministers of his com- fort." He has made the labor of an. hour the achievement of a minute; he can travel In a day by sea the week's distance of his grandfathers, and by land the distance of their month; he has vanquished the air. In these ways and others he has won new lll ertles. In these ways and others he Is Seeking liberty still--through the control of natural forces, the con- trot of disease, the control of intelli- gence, the control of passion, the con- trol of men in masses and singly.- Grant Showerman In the University of California Chronicle. ( Nye s One Exptience With Cyclone Enough I have not the necessary personal magnetism to look a cyclone in the  eya and make It quail. 1 am stern and even haughty in my intercourse with men, but when a Manitoba simeon takes me by the brow of my pantaloons and throws me across township 28, range 18, west of the fifth principal meridian, I lose my mental reserve and become anxious and even taciturn. As the people came into the forest with lanterns and pulled me out of the crotch of a basswood tree with a "tackle and fall," I remember I told them I didn't yearn for any more atmospheric phenomena. The cyclone la a natural phenome- non, enjoying the most robust health. it may be a pleasure for a man with great will power and an iron consti- tution to study more carefully into the habits of a cyclone, but as far as I am concerned I could worry along some way ff we didn't have a phenomenon In the house from one year's end to the Other. As I sit here, with my leg In a silicate of soda cor- set and watch the merry throng prom- enading down the street, I cannot re- press a feeling toward a cyclone that almost amounts to dlsgust.From "Bill Nye, His Own Life Story," by Frank W. Nye. Education and Busineu An lnsurmw.e company, like many companies In other lines of business, found that It is not always wise to em- ploy a man too well educated. He may be too ambitious to stay, or at least may feel himself above It and not put whole-hearted effort Into It. For ma. selling Jobs a high school graduate_ far more desirable than a college grad- uate. But a high school graduate has more persistence than a man who Went only part way through high school. L'lkewlse, a college graduate Is more likely to stick than one who went to college but not all the way through. Nation's Business. Whaleship us u Shrine The oldest whaleshlp in the world stands imbedded in a sea of cement at South Dartmouth, Mass. Several per- sons combined to purchase the old hulk and to fit it out as a memorial to the old whaling industry, 'It stands' as a shrine with a bronze tablet near- by, giving the highlights of the craft's history and the names of the donors who made the memorial possible.

HOUSEHOLD HINTS When a recie calls for soft wheat, or pastry flour, and you have only hard wheat or bread flour on hand, Jecrease the amount used*. Fill a cup with sifted flour, level it off, and take out two level tablespoons from each cup being used in place of sott wheat flour. If canned beans in glass have been frozen they may be used provided freezing did not break the jars or loosen the seal in any way so as , to cause the product to spoil. All canned vegetables should be boiled for five minutes after the jars are opened, before being served in any way. A blackboard hung in the kitchen is helpful for noting clown supplies needed, the menu when different ones are to prepair part of it, erands to be done, or interesting family events to be announced. It makes some of the routine work mre fun .and less drud[gery to assign it to different ones by means of a bulletin board. To make har sauce that is differ- ent, use brown sugar, and grate into it a little orange rind for flavor. Here's an easily made winter jam: Soak 1 pound of dried apricots over- night in 1 pint of water, In the morn- ing, chop them and ad@ 1 cup of su- gar. Drain the slices of pmeapple from two No. 3 cans, cut them into very small pieces, and cook with 2 2-3 cups of sugar for 20 minutes. Add the apricots and cook for 25 minutes. Watch while cooking as the' mixture scorches easily. Seal while hot in sterilized jars. If you have an electric washing machiaae, says the United States De- partment of Agriculture, be sure to pull out the electric blug when leav- ing the machine between wash days and coil the connecting cord where it will not collect moisture and dirt. Do not lubricate or adjust any part of the washer while the cord s con- nected to the current source. Proper insulation of all wiring, cords, and electrical devices is especially import- ant in the laundry, where the work- er often touches them with wet hands and where the floors and walls are damp, A REAL DEBT TO BE LIQUIDATED Some nations may reptata their honest debts and some individuals may fail to possess the debt paying virtue, but the Methodist church has determined to set a good example. Too long mankind has been care- less of its benefactors. It has been a common experience in the world' history for those who have gven the race its richest heritage to be forgotten and neglected until it be- came too late for them to enjoy the eulogy or gift of appreciation. i It is a hopeful sign in our social i development when gratitude fin4s ex- pressmen in concrete form. The min- ister of the Gospel, in a peculiar way, if he is the right type, puts the mind of the world as well as its social regime i,n his debt. By his vows and the nature of his work he separates himself from all money making schemes. Its serves mankind' for what they choose to give. His pre- paration must be the best and his life must be spent giving others a chance to step up. When his active life is over his sunset shoul'd certainly be beautified by those who have received his minis trations, We compliment the Methodists of this territory i their effort t9 raise $350,000 to help care for their re- tired ministers. LAST REUNION A joint reunion of the men of the Blue av.d those of the Gray, to be held in Washington, in 1928, was di- rected to the attention of the House of Representatives by Representative Howard of Nebraska. He tol d of a plan, advocated by Hen. L. D.
