THE BOY SCOUT APPEAL.
NEW YORK CITY Is all agog over
the success of the Salvation
Army In breaking up the gangs
of Houston street, where cards, dice
and fighting have been the standard
occupation of boyhood. Under the
direction of Elisabeth Justice, an
army lassie, the boys are now just as
busy trying to be gentlemen as they
formerly were trying to be rowdiee.
And New York wonders at the mir
Nothing very surprising about the
transformation. Miss Justice and
her helpers know something more
about why the Boy Scout movement
haa been so tremendously popular
and successful than do those who are
watching this metamorphasls in
amazement. All they have done Is
to give enough things worth doing
to leave them no time for the things
they had been doing which were not
beneficial for them, and then made
these worthwhile occupations the
popular things to do.
Ask any at the parents of those
800 Boy Sceuts who brought their
“dads" to their annnal banquet at
the Chamber of Commerce the other
night what is the biggest thing In
their boy’s life just now. If they
really know their boys they will be
pretty certain to put the scout work
flrsL Why? Simply because the •
scout program lncludoe enough In
teresting employment to keep any
boy busy during the years he Is
eligible for membership. He Is
never at a loss for something good
to do whenever he has time for It.
Reformers of "bad" boys, when
ever they may be found, need no
other magic. Reformers of “bad
boys" grown Into men will often find
| the idea just as applicable.
Mr. Flxlt Fixe* It.
From the Nation’s Business.
A friend of mine told me the other
night about a small manufacturer -who
came to Washington from, we’ll say,
Toledo. Back home .hs’fl got stirred up
about a bill that was somewhere In the
mill at the capital. It hit Us business
and he wanted to be In the know.
Thought he’d better corr\e to Washing
ton himself and get his Information
Some friend told him to look up a
man In Washington, one of these
“Sh-h-h! Leave-1 t-to-me" boys. So tha
Toledo manufacturer rings up this Mr.
Flxlt, who presently turns up at his
1 hotel, very mysterious.
“Well," says Flxlt, rubbing his chin
In the most approved Judicial manner,
••well—of course, you understand there
are ways of finding out," with Just a
touch on the loud pedal on ths "are."
"But, as you might say, you’ve got to
know the ropes. Let me look around a
bit. I’ll meet you tomorrow at 10:S0
Next day he’s on deck again, very
much pleased and still very mysterious.
"Come along with me," says the
Sh-h-h artist, and the two of them hop
a taxi for the hill. There the factory
man Is led Into the Senate office build
ing. where Mr. Flxlt j>ops Into an offlce
or two, leaving our friend and hero, Mr.
George W. Comeon, out 'n the lobby.
Pretty soon Fixlt comes out looking
wiser than over and they hop over to
the capltol. Once more the visitor 1s
left to wait In the rotunda to admire the
statues while his new friends slips Into
He comes back in a minute looking
like seven Solomons, only a lot more
mysterious, and says:

wait till we get a cab."

Sports In College Life.
An Instructor in Scribner's Magazine.
I shall not venture here on a lengthy
defense of athletic sports, nor do I pur
pose to assign their precis* position in
collego life. Of this however, I am per
suaded—those who attack college ath
letics most savagely and Inveigh against
them most ferociously, have never pic
tured to themselves Just what the col
leges and the nation Itself would be,
were all college games suppressed. There
are, perhaps, some phases of athletics
In college which I should not care to
Justify. I believe, however, they are the
excrescences. That sports as conducted
In college today arc powerful In the up
building of those rugged physical and
moral qualities—Initiative, courage, mod
esty, magnanimity, patience, and perse
verence—of which the world stands ever
In need, this thesis I am at all times
ready to defend.
Almost everyone considering the
case of Camille Blanc, Just dis
charged as director of the Monte
Carlo casino under the implied sus
picion that he diverted almost all
the profits of that great gambling
i enterprise since World war days to
his own use, would feel sure they
would have a vast fortune safely
hidden away somewhere. About
one person In 1,000 might do It. The
others would be likely to do what
this man has probably done, spent
the easily acquired wealth as fast as
they took it.

4- A PENNSYLVANIA DISCLAIMER
From Philadelphia Record.
We hold no brief for the so-called
coal barons of Pennsylvania, a stiff
necked tribe well able to look after
their own interests, but in the inter
ests of strict accuracy we feel called
upon to protest against the statement
of General Goethals, the retiring fuel
administrator of New York, that "Penn
sylvania, the chief coal producing state,
through its financial, railroad and po
litical combines, has taxed its neighbors
and soaked the nation generally.”
While it Is true that Pennsylvania Is
the leading coal-producing state of the
union, it must be borne in mind that
control of all its coal does not rest with
the people of the commonwealth. As
fuel administrator. General Goethals was
principally Interested In the distribution
of anthracite, and we would direct his
attention to the fact that the great bulk
of this commodity, probably 75 per cent.,
is controlled by nine railroads and their
subsidiary Tnlning companies, which in
theory are separated, but continue to
act in concert through natural motives
of self-interest. These nine dominating
corporations are the Delaware, Lacka
wanna & Western, the Delaware A
Hudson, the Erie, the Jersey Central,
the Lehigh Valley, the New York. On
tario A Western (New Haven system),
the Philadelphia & Reading, and the
Pennsylvania railroads, and the Lehigh
Coal A Navigation Company.
Of these nine corporations the first
six have their headquarters in New
York city, are controlled by New York
capital, and the distribution of their coal
is directed from there. Only the last
three can be classed aa Pennsylvania
corporations, and it is needless to ear
that they exercise no arbitrary author
ity over the other six.
tf General Goethals has a grievance
about the way anthracite has keen al
lotted during the past trying winter he
should address his complaints to the six
New York companies and not seek to
put the blame upon the state of Penn
sylvania. We have troubles enough of
our own without having any unwar
ranted Impositions placed upon us.
Riding me Cowcatcher. !
Glen Mullln In Century.
“I rode a cowcatcher Just one*” said
Frisco. "Never again, unless I have te.
It was out of Eldorado, Kan., over ths
"While the engine was in the station,
I pipes the engineer cornin' out of hi*
cab with a little broom, and I see him
dust the cowcatcher off nice and clean
with It. I thinks to myself: 'Well, ain't
that fine! He's dustin' her off for me.’
So when his back was turned. I hops on
the cowcatcher and crouches under the
overhang of the boiler.
"I got by with It. Nobody saw me,
and when the engine snorted out, there
was yours truly smilin’ like a basket o’
chips on the cowcatcher. But I didn’t
smile long. That engine was a passenger*
engine and kicked up an awful wind
Open yer mouth, and she'd blow you
wrong side out, and so cold she felt like
an icicle laid against your eyeballs."
"Didn’t hit anything, did you?"
"Oh, boy! Walt a minute! I'm cornin'
to that. Well, as a I sat ther slappln'
myself, tryln’ to keep warm, the head*
light sprayed out across the prairie and
attracted all the bugs In Kansas. My
mouth and eyes and shirt got full of
’em. and them big, shiny, black bug*
hurt, too, when they hit you between
the eys. The light was so bright I
could see big bloaty hoptoads pantin’
along between the rails 26 yards ahead.
“Purty soon, a quarter mile away, at
a crossing, I see an old white cow with
her calf standln’ on the track. The light
didn’t seem to bother her none. She
Just stood thero munchin’ her cud and
blinkin’ as we bore down on her. The
old engine began toetin’ like you hear
’em on New Year’s eve. I sort o’ slid
down on the back o’ my neck and h’lsted
my heels up in the air so’b bossy would
hit them first. Well, Just before we
reached her. she ambled calmly off the
track, flickin’ her tall, and the calf
nosin’ her in the flanks as she went.
"Say, I was so weak for a little while
I couldn’t sit up Just laid there on
my neck prayin’ for strength. Don’t
newer mention cowcatcher to me again.
It make* mo nervous to talk about It.”

Persons looking for a cool place to
■pend the coming summer might profit
by a consultation with some of the low
temperature experts at the bureau of
standards In Washington, who have an
nounced the freezing of 100 cubic centi
meter*, or about a wine glass of liquid
hydrogen, at temperature of 437 below
zero Fahrenheit. It was frozen from a
liter of the liquefied hydrogen, approxi
mately a quart In common measure. This
Is the first time solid hydrogen has been
produced at the bureau of standards.
Although hydrogen was first liquefied
by Dewar, the British scientist. 26 years
ago, the experiment has not been re
peted successfully more than a dozen
times since. It presents great difficul
ties, absolute purity of the gas Is neces
sary. A small fraction of 1 per cent, of
air, for example, will freeze solid and
clog up the apparatus.
Using a special multiple wall vacuum
container, designed by Dr. C. V. Kanolt,
in charge of low temperature work. It
has been found possible to preserve
liquid hydrogen for a much longer pe
riod than with the older forms.
The degree of cold produced Is Incon
ceivable to the non-technlcal mind, the
coldest temperature on the earth’s sur
face ever recorded having been only 90
below zero, recorded In Siberia, while
temperatures as low as 70 below are
Solid hydrogen melts at a temperature
of about 436 degree below zero Fahren
heit. This is only about 26 degrees above
the "absolute zero,” where there Is no >
heat left. Solid hydrogen has been used
in trying, to approach this goal which ,
scientists believe will never be reached.
Experiments at these extremely low
temperatures have a bearing on theories
as to the ultimate constitution of mat
ter, which Is one of the great problem*
of modern science.
