for f.ffences at Tamplco and elsewhere against the American flag. Con-
secuently, the Washington government had hoped the constitutionalists
would remain silent and not Interject
themselves Into the (Imbroglio. The
Carranza letter, however, confirmed
the fears of many officials that the
constitutionalists might side with

Vera Cruz, April 22.���Rear Admiral   Fletcher,   at  8.30   o'clock in   the
morning ordered a general movement
for the occupation of all the town. A
column of bluejackets advanced and
passed the uncompleted market place
and  naval  college.    When  they had
reached the walls of the college    a
terrific  rifle  fire  was  poured  in  all
directions from the roof and the windows.   The bluejackets were helpless
to return the fire against the stone
walls and  scattered.      The    Prairie,
Chester  and   San   Francisco  opened
with their five and six inch guns and
shattered the walls.   The bluejackets
re-formed  and advanced  against  the
fire which had diminished greatly.
Several Streets Cleared.
By  10 o'clock there was only  desultory firing from the inshore  side
of the tower.   Battalions of bluejackets had  made  their  way  along  the

Secretary Bryan said today that the
status of Charge O'Shaughnessy and
charge Algara was unchanged so far
as he knew. Charge Algara has had,
however, notification from his government that he may leave when he
deems it advisable. This Is regarded
���as possibly forecasting lluertn's giving passports to O'Shaughnessy.

Although international lawyers and
many In congress are not sure what
the diplomatic relations of the United
States toward Mexico are. whether a
state of war exists without a declaration to that effeeit, or whether, as
many precedents have shown, the situation is merely nn act of reprisal
"short of war." there Is no doubt that
relations between the Huerta de facto
government and the United States

that platiB were now under way for a

It is expected that ' solid passenger

The other day the Central Railway of Canada offered
in London something more than six million five per cent.
bonds at ninety and a good many Canadians learned for
the first time that there was such a thing as the C. R. of C.
This road, which claims all sorts of land grants it so
far has been unable to satisfactorily establish, issued a
private prospectus in 1907 and ever since that date it has
been doing its puny best to get hold of some of the British
investor's capital via the bond route. However, the British investor is more discriminating than he used to be in
the matter of colonial paper and so far the bond selling
business of the C. R. has been rather slack.
The whole matter hinges on the point that Canada
has plenty of railroads finished and under construction
for the time being. There are other industries in this Dominion outside of the railways and these should have the
opportunity to gather some of the pounds from the
motherland for their development
Evidently this is the light in which the old country
underwriters and investors size up the case, for the bonds j
of the ambitious Central Railway of Canada are not what
one might call "over-subscribed."

The French revolution and the rise i In

Napoleon drove the Bourbons out of
Spain and established his brother as
the king of that country, the military
prestige   of  Spain   was     broken.     In

The reason, he declared, was due to

When Summer
Stops the Swing*
Most of us ctin remember the school lesson in tbe
law of accumulated motion���momentum.
If you exert a pound of pressure against a man in
a swing, you'll start him moving slowly "to and
fro." If you continue to exert a pound of pressure against him every time the swing makes a
trip, you'll soon have him going so high that he
almost turns the whole circle. If you stop pushing, the momentum will die out and the swing
come to rest at "dead centre."
Winning trade follows the same natural laws.
Advertisements are the force behind the swing of
public favor. Each new advertisement increases
the momentum. Finally, the accumulated force
of these numerous impulses swings indifference to
the buying point.
If you stop Advertising, you lose momentum.
The moral of which is:
Don't stop the business swing in Summer.
Keep adding the pounds of Advertising

arrangement    to    this effect  having
been made with the half-breed leader
of the [nsurrectos. lnturbide was
crowned July:; l, 1822.
Then started a series of revolutions
; and counter revolutions which kept up
; without intermission down to the time
j when  Porfirio Diaz became president
. in 1877, ami established himself under
l that   title   as   dictator.     Santa   Ana,
Captain   general   of   Vera   Cruz,   who
made a good deal of Mexican history
before his death, revolted  in  1828.  It-
I urbide st tit a force against him which
deserted to Santa Ana.    Then lturbide ;
reconvened the congress which he had j
arbitrarily dissolved and offered to ab- I
I dicate.    Congress   refusid   to  accept,
but declared his original election void
and deported him to Europe.   He returned to start another revolution and i
was captured and shot.    Then followed fivt  years of almost complete anarchy.   Guerrero, the half-breed leader:
oi the original  revolution,  finally  secured control in 1828,    He was shortly
deposed   by   Bustamente;   he   in   turn ���

by Gomez  Farias in  18113, only to be ]
deposed  by  Santa  Ana,  who  became
dictator May 30. 1S3-4.
War   With   United   States.
Here came ifi the first conflict with
the I'nited States. Mexico had invit-1
ed Americans into the country to de-i
velop the uncultivated lands. Large
numbers oi men rrom the southern
part of the i'nited States took advantage of the liberal terms offered them
nnd went into what was then northern
Mexico and established the Mexican
state of Texas. In 1836 a new congress of Mexico, at the instigation of
Santa Ana, abolished the federal system and left the government of the
states entirely with appointees of the
dictator. This was the signal for a
revolt of the Americans in Texas who
set up an independent government nnd
successfully maintained it, defeating
the Mexican armies sent against them.
The independence of Texas was recognized by the government or the United
States In March, 1S37 and the annexation of Texas and war with Mexico
during which California, New Mexico,
Arizona and part oi Colorado was
wrested rrom Mexico, followed. Santa
Anc's power was temporarily broken
when he fell Into the hands of the
Texans at the battle of San Jacinto
and Bustamente became provisional
Santa Ana in Command.
In October, 1841 Santa Ana again
became provisional president and
Bustamente was expelled. Santa Ana
then turned his office over to Nicholas Brava. In 1844, Santa Ana, who
was secretly directing affairs, was
seized by the army which had mutinied, imprisoned and ultimately expelled from the country. He came
back two years later and was in supreme command during the war with
the United States, but at its conclusion he fled the country. The revolution of 1853 recalled him and congress made him president for life.
His despotism raised revolts against
him everywhere. Santa Ana fled once
more and Ignacio Comonfort became
dictator in December. 1857. Ho was
deposed and expelled but the succession was not given to Menito Juatez
who expected it, so he revolted and
carried on civil war for many years

The Coquitlam council met at Maillardville  yesterday   afternoon,   Reeve j
Marmont presiding.
Iteeve Marmont gave a concise ac-!
count of his delegate work at Winni-
peg,    In  referring to the absurd and!
| untrue   statements   of   Mayor   Baxter
, and the Vancouver delegates in regard t
j to   the   Fraser  river,   the   reeve   con-
treated  the attitude of Mayor Roe of
Port   Moody,   with   Vancouver's   civic I
i head,    Mayor Hoe took a manly stand j
and while expiating upon the advantages of his own locality on Hurrard
Inlet,   scorned   to   detract   from   the j
Fraser river, and even went so far as I
to  admit  the   Fraser  river  advocates
had  made out a strong case.
Councillor  Percy -He always plays j
, the game.
The Iteeve    I think we have a very j
strong case and Col. Taylor told  me
be was absolutely sure, himself, that '
we will have the elevator on the Eraser   river.     The   exact   locality   will
eome down to a case of accessibility
and   railway   connection.     Vancouver!
is   entirely   controlled   by  the   C.p.R ;
and     woefully     circumscribed.     Port!
Moody   would  require  more  dredging
than the Eraser.
The most likely place in his opinion !
was Port Coquitlam.
Councillor Robertson, as an old sea-j
faring man, who had seen the principal harbors of the world, considered
Vancouver a third rate one. There was
to much wind and too high a sea and
ships rolled in the middle of the bar-1
Councillor    Percy���Too  high   until

Anyone who had been at sea knew
the benefits ships got ln fresh water,
especially old tramps.
In conclusion, on the suggestion of
the reeve a motion was passed expressing regret at the mis-statements
of the Vancouver delegates and the
hope that the Vancouver board of
trade would repudiate them. Councillor Oxtoby dissented, but gave no reason.

Through Tire to Fortune
In Five Reels.���By Clay M. Greene
A new thrill has been filmed. With conflagrations, war's horrors, and Roman arena scenes we
are familiar. It remained for Lubln to give us a new and peculiarly American thrill in "Through Fire
to Fortune." It consists of a n unusually realistic portrayal of a fire In a coal mine, a miner's torch having come in contuct with a newly discovered oil well and the crowning triumph of big scenes, the destruction of an entire village, when the walls of the mine over which it is built begin to crumble. Here
we see Whole houses sink into the earth, the panic-stricken villagers, and. lastly, the fire that follows
the cave-In and completes the destruction. These scenes of conflagration, and the people huddled
about the camp fires on a safe spot, are remarkable examples of night photography, and deserving of
the highest praise. All in all, "Through Fire to Fortune" marks a distinct step in the productions of
American features, and should npt be missed.

iivlng  in   a  house   in   Helena   for  21
years and selling it less than a year
ago for  $tl.noo  l.eon  I.  Milot of this
city has learned that a gold mine has
been   discovered   in   the  cellar.     lUs
father  was a  miner all  his  life,  but
never suspected that he was sleeping
over  a   valuable  property  all   these
years.    The woman who bought it ordered an excavation made In the cellar in order to put in a furnace. This
brought ore to the surface.   She had ���
it assayed and found values of $65 per j
ton  in  gold, silver, copper and  lead.
The  plan  to  put  in  a    furnace    was
changed   and   Instead   the   lady   has

Socialists on the Wagon.
That  the  Socialist   party  has  com-j
I mltted  Itself to prohibition  Is assert-j
[ed   by  O.   K.   Peters,  secretary  of  the j
local branch.    He encloes a copy of ai
letter   from   the   Information   department of national headquarters at Chicago, stating that the Gothenburg system has been found Inadequate, and
that   Norway   and   Sweden   Socialists
have declared tor absolute prohibition
of   the  liquor   traffic   and   that   the
same   stand   lias   been   taken   by   the
Soicalist party in the United States.
"Knowing as we do that fie Socialists in Europe have been in the lead
in the effort to put down tlie liquor
traffic," writes Secretary Peters, "we,
the constructive Socialists of We-!
natchee, herewith pledge ourselves to
work and vote for prohibition of the
manufacture and sale of liquor."
Commenting upon this attitude Sec-'
rotary Peters states that in this community Socialists have not always taken such a stand. They now see their
mistake and declare themselves unqualifiedly   for prohibition.

B vim. April 22,    Agitation has been
started in Germany to abolish the axe!
| and  the  block.   Of all civilized  and
I cultured peoples, Germany is the only country in the world which lias re-
j tallied and still clings to this ancient
I form of executing tbe death sentence '
of the law.
Even Russia, so often characterized
as  benight, d, has adopti d    ban-- ng,
I Prance, often termed the most enlightened  nation, also clings to Its trad!-
| tional beheadings in preferenci  i ��� the
| less spectacular   and    mori    refined
I form of hanging, adopted by the greater portion of the civilized world, a   1
to electrocution in vogue In the V .-
j ted States.
But France makes some claim for
refinement in the tragedy of a human
life by the fact that it executes the
law's sentence with a machine, tbe
: mechanical guillotine, merely h>i
I motion by human :;-'' i cy. The
chine does the rest.
Primitive Operation.
Ill Germany society still  rids  itsi
(of undesirables by the simple thougl
| primitive  operation  of  severing    the
I head from the body with an axe s�� in?
I by brawny arms, just as was don- In
England  in  the day of Alary, Queen
of Scots, Queen Elizabeth and Henry
: Vlli.    In Germanj thf  idea has been
land  still  is to a large extent, that In
! order   to   make   human   execution     a
! check upon crime and to prove a deterrent   to  murder,  it  should   be  surrounded with as much terroi as possi-'
hie.    Advocates  claim   thai   the  glistening axe rind  the  blackrobed  block
are  a   greater  symbol  ol   that   terror
of the final act of the law   than the
hangman's noose.
A large flat flagstone on  which, the j
headsman stands in order to have n
firm  looting  marks the sum     When
| the   hour  arrives,   warders   inter  the
, cell ol the condemned man and quickly cut away tile collar of his shirt in
order  to  leave the neck  I,are     II.   |a
led  outside.    As  tie enter--  the courtyard through a small door, he is quick- i
I ly  wheeled about so thai  his  back  h-
, toward   the  fatal  spot  and  he  faces
two  officials   who   read   to   him   thai
the sentence ol   law  is about  to  be
| executi d
lie Is Helzed by two i trong warders
.who  half  carry,  half drag  him   back-
i wards to the block.    Instead of being
I fore, ,1   to   kneel  down   In   front   of  It,
, the condemned  man is thrown    face
; down on a benchlike block to which
he   is   strapped.     His  chin   and   head
fit Into a nemi-oiroiilar hole in the end
of the block.   The headsman, Immac-
I ulately  clad  in  black    evening    suit.
| walks quickly to the victim, poises an
I Immense axe for a moment about two
land a half feet above the end of the
| log-block and with unerring aim drops
i it upon the neck.    It is over.
Perhaps one reson that there has
J been no movement before toward abolishing the axe lies in the fact that
details of executions are never printed
in the German press. Usually an execution is told in two or three lines.
The public, rarely learns of any harrowing  details..

The "keen edge of self-interest" is keeneet in the morning. Thua
the impression made by advertising ln a morning newspaper la stronger than that made by advertising which is "glanced at" after a tiring
and an enthusiasm-capping day.
As you begin the day, you want to be up to date in your knowledge of what's going on in the world���so you read your morning paper NECESSARILY. As you begin the day, if tbe day's routine calls
for some buying of goods, or chattels, you want knowledge of the latest offers and p-offers made by the Btores���so again you turn to your
morning paper,   for it is TODAY'8 PAPER.
As people want the last fact, the latest developments, in news,
so they do in advertising. Assuming that a woman intends to purchase certain things, and plans to go to the store some time during
the day, it in natural that she should want to know what the stores
offer in rotation to the immediate buying opportunities she seeks.
So she will read the ads in her morning paper���for that is the last
paper she will read before going shopping.
THE MORNING PAPER'S advertisements supply shoppers with
the information they seek and act upon In the day's buying.
Is a rested mind not easier to imp/ess, more apt to consider nn
offer or a selling argument, than a TIRED MIND?
The morning finds the rested mind -the evening the tired mind.
Advertising in a good morning paper is INTERESTING because the"
reader is  alert and Interested in his own interests��� not tired, blue
and bortd.
A good morning newspaper is an influence���not a mere incident���
in the dally lives of people.
The advertising.in its columns shares in that influence���is a part
of it. A morning newspaper's contents are edited and prepared with
the knowledge that every Hue in the paper will be read���not every line
by every reader of course.    But every line, ads and all. will have its
One of the large items of expense in the making of a dependable
uiorniug newspaper Is the obtaining and VERIFYING OK PACTS in
connection with the news. Eacts are sometimes hard to get���sometime! they cost a great deal of money. Always, In the making of a
real ^newspaper THEY MUST BE OBTAINED, at whatever cost of
effort or expense. Conjectures as to the facts and details In such news
events ub accidents and disasters Is a serious shortcoming in a newspaper, involving perhaps needless anxiety for hundreds of people.
The readers of a newspaper to whom a news event has any special
Interest will always want to know the actual facts and details. And
is It not your experience that, in most cases, these must be found in
a morning newspaper? The advertising In a morning newspaper���as a
matter of course���receives corresponding consideration.

Paper for New Westminster

"The Outlook" Sees Live Indications:
of This Movement in Eastern
In a rectnt issue The Outlook refers
editorially to the national congress
held a short time ago in Karachi, in I
northern India, which It speaks of as
one of the many Indications of the
growing feeling of nationalism among
the people of India.
These congresses were inagurated
by the late Allan Hume, who was a
member of the Indian civil service and
a son of Joseph Hume, the economist",
Sir William Weddetburn, and the late
W. C. Bonnerjee, who did much to
place it on a substantial basis, and
tbeir encouragement was also a policy of the late I^ord Dufferin when
viceroy of India. Among the leaders
of the congress the most remarkable
has been O. K. Gokhale, member for
Bombay in the legislative council, on
the constructive and practical side,
and the poet Rabindranath Tagore as
an Inspiring force In the national
"While there has always been a certain sentiment of nationality," says
the Outlook, "there never has been
any predominant note of what might
be called nationhood in India.
Throughout the ages certain national
ideals have ministered more or less to
the imagination and culture of the
people. But they have never made a
practical nation of India, one desirous
of occupying a prominent place in the
realm of commerce and- material
things, nor have they ever brought
about and real sentiment of unity
among the various races.
"Three hundred million of people
in India, like the four hundred million in China, have* not been able to
resist a world-wide tendency during
the past generation towards polilcal
unity and nationhood. And the singular thing about both China and India is that foreign control has aided
the movement, sometimes by antagonism to it but more often by sympathy i with it. This has certainly
been true of the generally intelligent
It British Control ln India;   it was lat-1
I terly true even of the generally unin-
II telllgent Manchu control of China. It
1 will always be true of any foreign
1 control, which like that of the United
1 States In the Philippines, means a rule
purely for the benefit of the people
Dr. William Wilfred Campbell la
Called the Poet of tbe Lakes.
Dr. William Wilfred Campbell, tbe
Canadian poet and novelist, whose,
recent book of verse has been well
received by critics and the reading
public generally, comes of famous
literary stock. He is of Scottish and
English descent, being on his father's side of a cadet branch of the
House of Argyll, descended from tbe
tirst Lord Campbell, and also of tbe
same stock as the poet, Thomas
Campbell, and as Fielding, tbe British novelist, says Chesterfield ln The
Family Herald. His father, the Rev.
Thomas Swanston Campbell, waa a.
Church of England clergyman, and
his mother, Mathilda Frances Campbell, was a daughter of the late Major
Francis Wright, of the Royal Horae
Guards. Dr. Campbell is 52 years of
age, and was born at Berlin, Ont., and
was destined for tbe church. In fact.
he waa for six years an ordained
clergyman. When ordained be took
up parish work ln New England, but
three years later returned to Canada.
Exceaaive Use Results In their Mental
and  Moral  Deficiency.
Ottawa. April 22.���That cigarette
smoking was not worse than any other
kind provided the smoke Is not Inhaled
Into the lungs, was the declaration
of Edward W. McGill, chief analyst
of the Dominion government, giving
evidence before the cigarette committee today. He alluded to the smoking of pipes and stated that thore is
great danger from their being hot and
thus condensing nicotine of a most
poisonous character.
'The pernicious effects of cigarettes
upon children were described by Mrs.
Rose Henderson, an officer of the
juvenile court of Montreal. "My observation," she said, "is that children
excessively using cigarettes are under
size as well as deficient In morality
and mentality. I have known them
to come into court with their stomachs almost burned out���unable to
eat or sleep properly because of using cigarettes. I have known many
cases where mothers have given cigarettes to children simply to humor
them without regard to moral or physical affects."
There were also instances of mothers smoking cigarettes.
Mr. Dawson, clerk of the juvenile j
court of Montreal, stated that he knew
of cases of working women using cigarettes, but It was common at the two
ends of the social ladder���the society
women and the lowest class.
and was for a time rector ot St. Stephen, N.B., retiring from the mini*- |
try on account of bis health, in 1891.
Dr. Campbell married Mary Loulee.
only child of tbe late Dr. Davtd Dibble, Woodstock, Ont., and Loulae
Mackenzie Macdonald, senior representative of the ancient Barona Mackay, of Stratby and Deriot, North Britain, and 10th in deacent through
her maternal grandfather, and 11th
through her maternal grandmother
from Robert Stuart, Earl of Orkney,
son of James the V. of Scotland; also,
through the same 9th and 10th from
Lady Jane Gordon, eldest daughter
of the 17th Earl of Sutherland.
Mention   has   been   made   ot   Dr.
Campbell's  relationship to the Duke
of Argyll.   As a matter of fact, not
only are tbe poet and the duke near
relations; they are Intimate friends.
and both keenly Interested in each
other's   literary    work.     Upon   Dr.'
Campbell's last visit to Europe,   he
m?.de  a  long stay as a guest ot  hist
distinguished   kinsman.    For   many
years Dr. Campbell has been a member of the Civil Service/at Ottawa,
and la attached to the Dominion Archives Bureau,   under   Dr. Doughty.
He is known to all Canadians aa a
writer of English verse, and haa been
called "Tbe Poet ot the Lakes."  Hla,
poem, "Tbe Mother," has  been ptae-
ed by tbe Chicago Inter-Ocean among
tbe   gems  ot English  literature.    It
baa also been pronounced to be'their'*
nearest approach   to   a   great poem
which baa appeared for many a long
day, and was referred to ln the Canadian House of Commons in terms of
i commendation by Sir Wilfrid Laur-
ler.   Dr. Campbell  baa also  written.
I much Imperial verse, and ot late has
I written considerable fiction.   He la ��
fellow of the Royal Society cf Can-
I ada, and Is a past vice-president of
the English section, and paat president.  He la sow secretary ot the society. He waa a member ot tbe Literary Committee, appointed in connection  with  the  Quebec Tercentenary
celebration, and la a councillor of the
Canadian Landmarks Association. He
waa a delegate from the Royal Society to attend  tbe Quarter centenary
of Aberdeen University, in 1906, and
was presen'��d to tbe late King Edward.    He received the honorary degree of  LL.D.  from  Aberdeen  upon
this occasion.   Among Dr. Campbell's
best known writings are "Lake Lyrics," "The Dread Voyage," "Mordred
and Hildebrand Trag -ties,"  "Political Tragedies," "Beyond the Hills or
Dream"; poems, "Collected Verse, Sagas of Vaster Britain," "Ian of the
Orcades," "Canada"  (incollaboration
with T. R. Martin, R.C.A.), descriptive of the Dominion;  "A Beautiful
Rebel," historical novel; "The Canadian Lake Region."
Dr. Campbell lectured before the
Imperial Club, London, Eng., on
"The Practical Side of Imperialism."
In 1.1)04, and was present at the coronation of Their Majesties, in 1911.     ,
in the commercial world it is reasonable to assume that what you pay
and what you get evict-mine v-wno. n
low price, in Itsall docs not speil value: price and iiua.'ty. togethar, determine value.
As applied to the dairy herd, how
dees this work out? A farmer does
not necessarily buy a cow because the
price is low, he wants quality, in this
case quality may be interpreted ,o
mean dairy capacity, or ability to produce plenty of milk. If he does not
purchase, porsibly the heifer coming
into milk has been raised ut rather
too high a cost so that her dairy quality is impaired. She may not be
the right stock, that Is, from a dam
of deep milking qualities and a sire
of known ability, and all may have
suffered from lack of the right feed.
The other part of the value side of
every dairy cow, that Is, what you get
from her, is right in the dairyman's
own hands. He can easily determine
each cow's value, or dairy quality, by
keeping individual records of production. Then If he wishes to part with
a good cow, her selling price is enhanced by reason of that certificate
of value, her record, which helps to
fix the price. Right buying is true
economy; the factory pattern with
the highest conception of value will
buy, or raise, right, and will know.
by his cwn simple records that each
cow ln the herd separately, not aver-,
aged in a lump, fits his ideal of value.
Fix a good standard, make each cow
pay. Milk and feed record forms arc
supplied free by the dairy commissioner, Ottawa.

Dried Fruit Inspection.
The latest bulletin from the Inland Revenue Department shows that
in the inspection of 176 packages or.
raisins, currents, prunes, figs, dates,
apricots, peaches, pears 138 samples
have been found to be satisfactory
and 20 doubtful. Among the samples takeu seventeen packages have
been found to be adulterated and
nine of the seventee"! were figs.
Attention  is directed  to   tbe  car
tons in which   much   of   the   dried
fruit    is    sold.     Twenty-four    were
found to be one or more ounces light

Shipbuilding Dropped Hack.        /'
There was less shipbuilding in Canada last year than the year before,
and with the exception ot the year*.
1910 and 1911, it was less than usual. The tonnage of vessels bnilt
last year and registered waa 24.325..
This includes practically no vessels
built for pleasure purposes, tbe tonnage of which is growing fast, but
these are seldom registered and them-
is no record kept.
The- tonnage of the Canadian vessels registered laat year was 30,225.
This is about the same as the year
before. The seagoing and inland
water tonnage, out and in, wa3 5?,- '
849,783, which is an increase or
about five millions and the coasting
tonnage was 73,644,713, an increase
of nearly seven and a half millions

Henry Ford, of Automobile Fame. In
slats   on   Employees   Living   in
Comfortable   Homes.
Detroit, Mich., April 22. Henry
Ford has declared :War agains- tenements and squalid rooming-houses,
and no emnloyee ot his automobile
company will be permitted to live in
In a notice just sent to all the De
troit employees,  Eord says  the com- I
pany   expects   each   recipient   of   its
profit sMaring plan  to use his or her,
��� share in tbe profits for the good of
themselves and  their families and  to
i "make  nior��  comfortable   your   home |
i nnd living conditions."
Married and single men  who do not
live up  to  the modern  standard j of
; American every-day living are to b��
eliminated from the Ford organization.    Married  men  who  keep  board
I < rs in their homes will lose their
places.    So  will  single    men  who  re-
! side in rooming houses such as have
i been  found  in   Highland   Park,  where
II hey sleep  in  shifts.
"These men of many nations must
be inught American ways, the English language, the right to live," ford
said    today     "Married    men    should
keep  their  households  for  themselves
and their Immediate families. They
should not sacrifice familiar rights,
pleasure and comfort by filling their
homes  with   roomers and  boarders.
"We now have forty-five investlga
tors who arc investigating each employee. Kvery detail of their living
is inquired Into."
Mrs. Baker P   Lee, whose husband
; is a noted Los Angeles divine, believes that   In  a   recent Illness,  hovering
'on the verge of death, she actually
experienced a  foretaste of the I >e be-
, yond  the grave.
i Mr. Lee, who is deeply ind .-poind
in phychology   is   preparing t> gether
i with  friends, to submit  a   report    nn
' the  strange experience to Sir Oliver
Lodge, the world's foremost Investigate of spirit phenomena.
Mrs. Lee, who is a woman of talent
| and a composer of music, had been 111
j for several weeks, during which time
I her life was often despaired of.    She
] has as-certalned that   the   experience
came at the time when her condition
i was lowest, and she was actually be-
| lleved to have passed away.
i     "I had been wheeled to the window
Iin  a chair," she  enid, "  where  I  sal
Ilooking   out    The    nurse    suddenly
| started  and  cried. 'Why,  she's  gone.'
"I   raw  my   husband  come  In      He
j looked   al   me  and     exclaimed,     'My
God,  has  it  come:'     I   tried   to  open
my cyts bu, could not.    1 said to ray-
seir, Tm not dead,' but 1 was power-
; less to move.   Then the four children
were brought In, weeping, and they
1 looked at me, Then thoy all went
] out.
"They left me alone and then my
I father stepped into the room just as
; he used to In real life. He and I
i were chums. I said., Tin not dead.
,' He replied. 'Not yet,'
"Suddenly   I   fell   my   spirit   leaving
my body with a joyful, light and ex-
! hiliaraling  release.
"My form remained the same but
j the substance had utterly changed. It
| was now  a  translucent  vapor.capahle
at my will, of going Immediately to
1 any place .
"I   possessed  all  of    my    faculties,
imagination, will and memory. I was
| amongst   the clouds, knowing the joy
! of flight. Then I came down and
' hovered over the city, saw the peo-
i pie and wished with all my strength
' to be able to reveal myself to them
to let them know that life after death
was beautiful.
"Hut  I   knew  I  was  not  dead,  and
so,  after   experiencing   unimaginable
joys, I  went back into my body with
'that   instantaneous   possession   which
had characterized my departure,
"The entire experience was ton
real for a dream, nnd since having
It I have been firmly convinced that
I dwelt for a time upon the edne of
eternitv and know, in pari, at least,
what   the   future  life  is."
