It revitalizes him in his fight to check the powerful, easy running, easy spending state machine that has found its driving power in the pock- ets of the tax payers. An adverse ruling would have left the governor a figurehead, respon- sible to the people for the executive direction of their business and their institutions, but helpless in that di- -rection. Place a man in any position over 100 or 1,000 or any number of meu with power to hire whom he pleased, but barred from firing any one whether he proved incompetent, dis- loyal or disobedient, and' what could such a man accomplish? Nothing. Denying the governor authority to dismiss any or all appointive officers, where the law doesn't specifically fix a term, whether they had been ap- pointed by himself or his predeces- sor, would be analogous to that case and provide just as impossible situ- , ation.

Early American Ship : The first American-built vessel to l make a deep-a voyage, the Trial, was launched 288 years ago, January 12, 1642. The builder was Capt. Thomas Coytmore, who was also the first com- mander of the vessel. The Trial was constructed at Boston and was of 165 tons ..burden. In these days of" Le. vlathans and Mauretanias few persons would care to trust their lives to Such a craft for even a short voyage, but in Its day the Trial was considered a good ship and brought a rleh return to Its owners. The Planet Mercury Mercury is the smallest planet and the nearest to the sun, Its mean dis- tance being about 86,00Q,000 miles. It completes a revolution of its orbit in 88 days, and its diameter is about 8,000 miles Its mass is bout one-eighteenth that of the earth, and its den..lty the same as that of the earth. Mercury is difficult to see with the naked eye ow- ing to its proxhulty to the sun. Tele- scopically it is of little interest. Faint marks can be een on its surface, but all are indefinite "Smiths" in England |n England there are 530,000 per- sons of the name of Smith, and 204,000 of them have "J" for their first initial. The John Smiths number 41,000; the John W'. Smith's, 30,000, and the John William Smith's, 5,000. It has been necessary to devise a mark for them to distinguish the products they fnako or own. A monomark with symbols will designate Just which Smith is re- ferred to. It was necessary to In- clude five syn.o/s in t/e .monomark. ,,i i Friday, July 23, 1926 ++ ,too. ebca00r "The Little ouse With Big Pictures" II IUlIIIIIIIIIUlCI Ullil lllUlII II lllll llllll Ill trttusu Saturday, July 24-- ....... . ..... *MATT MOORE,* *ZASU PITTS* and *KATHRYN PEltRY* in "Early to Wed" Comedy"Eighteen Carat" (COUNTRY STORE SUNDAY) Sunday, July 25--- *JEANETTE TAYLOR* and *J.
