Great Britain a fair degree of security
against u North sea Invasion. But the

airships aro regarded as nn aggravating
menace, magnified by Btorles of spying

has Issued regulations with regard to
domestic and foreign aircraft. No for
eign airship can land In tho islands with
out first obtaining permission, and with
such permission landing must be made
at prescribed places. Clearance papers
issued by British consular agents must
be shown nt the landing place. It Is
forbidden to land nt certain prescribed
places and sailing over such places Is
prohibited. No foreign craft may carry

Turkey at the moment of the Balkan In

acceptance from native Turks and Arabs.
The treaty of Lausanne Is Ignored by
the warriors of the desert, and Italian
control resisted In Cyrenalca and In
Tripoli proper. An Independent govern
ment has been organised, headed by Ba-
rounl Bey, who formerly tat for Tripoli
In the Turkish Parliament. Back of this
government stand the formidable organ

tant of the Beets of Islam, fierce haters
of the "Christian Infidel." Operations
are conducted on the guerrilla plan,
which Is especially harrasslng to. troops
unfamiliar with the country. The sit
uation Is likened to the experience of
France in Algiers, where the natives

PLEASANT VALLEY. March 21.-To
the Editor of Tho Bee: Did you efer ob
serve how humanity Is at war with Itself?
Man will claim that woman Is tho cause
of his downfall; that a man's, nature,
ncing weaK, Is easily led by woman.
It Is all vory true that a woman ha
led many a good man away from homo.
Did you ever see It fall where true lovo
abides that an evil, Jealous spirit alwaya
enters to mar It all? Still, I believe each
and every one la, entitled to "a true love.'
Somoyhero between sunset and when tho
night Is beginning to lower comes a pause
in tho day's .occupation, when tho dally
task Is done, when humanity drifts
toward loved ones, for those they toll.
That Is Just when pvll spirits hover near
to lead weary footsteps astray.
Alas, for man! Alas for woman! Woman
betrayed, woman's honor and name
blackened, causing, a canker soro to grow
these aro tho thlnga which cause
woman to wago war on man today, and
In my observation of the two man and
woman-It's half and half-half the men
aro demons and half the women are
serpents. Neither tho ono or tho other
try to do what la right, only wage "war
to show that they can do so-and-so to
People who have had the best training
In religion havo failed in this world and
society has been the causo of it all. So
ciety has put a ban on more than vr.o
good raco of people, and evidence against
them, caused by an evil spirit for revenge
only, bought off with money, and tho
outcome years aftorward has been ihat
the law was "only a graft" on humanltj".
But thero Is nn end to all these things,
and os- a remedy for these "black arts"
the practice of "whlto magic" will operate
and their motto will bo love, purity nnd
honesty. Lift your hearts to a higher"
world than this, close your eyes and
face tho rising sun, and pray from your
heart tha,t God Is your friend In Whom
you trust. All things that are good aro
of God. Bo honest with yourself and you
will find -that by doing this you wlll'be
honest with everybody; Dress your char
acter, and not, youi ipodel, and trump
that old serpent called "Prldo"1! underfoot,
and ypu will have won a greater battle
than any king. Do not let one hoUr of
the day pass over your .head without a
prayer for good things, and give thanks
for all you receive.
Friends, awaken In a good cause, there
Is work for us to do. Be a Christian, In
all your acts and deeds, and It will bring
you to a happy placo. The Creator on
tho last day will Judge us by the works
of our hands. FELICIA.
