Omaha Soldier Boy in France Sends
V Newspaper Published in the Trenches
THERE is something very interesting and yet very pathetic about a
trench newspaper.. . It is almost like a trip tothe "front line" to read
one of these little sheets, for it gives one an insight into the daily life
of the boys over there, even better than letters can.
Harry Sigwart, an Omaha man, who is with th 13th Railway Engineers,
sent one of these papers, "Windy City Echo," to his parents. Mr. and Mrs.
A. T. Sigwart. It contains little editorials, sports and clever little poems writ
ten by the bdys. There is even an obituary which brings mist to the eyes, writ
ten in real boy fashion and yet paying a most tender tribute to the comrade
who had joined those invisible forces in the far-away country.
There is" "Advice to theLovelorn," too, but instead of the justly famous
Beatrice Fairfax, it is written by Beatrice Pinard. The lovelorn swain writes
..'.'My petite Marie, with whom I have spent many enjoyable evenings, now
scorns me and says that she loves another. My hair is thick and wavy, my
eyes bright and clear-, my teeth are pearly white -and all in all I'm not hard
- to look at. I spend 'baucoup' francs at her 'epicerie.' I doirt 'compris'
reh Houte suite' drop in 'centigrade.' Can you think of any, thing I can do
to reinstate myself in her 'amour?' A. A." t '
" Beatrice answers: "You say your sweetheart loves another. If you had
said another American or another French soldier, my reply would haye been
' easy, but not knowing we flipped up a coin and it came down heads,, so we
decided it was a Frenchman who has stolen your 'confiture.' You have
lost her, A. A., unless you change your method of attack."
The little witticisms are perhaps the best part of the trench newspaper.
A little pun on the Young Men's Christian association reads: "Y-our M-oney
',. "You go to Paris green, and you comeback a parasite." '
"Ch, where are the Francs of yesterday?"
"Have you noticed that all the French girls have the Arc de Triomphe
.in their, eyes?"
:.' "One nice thing about France, you can satisfy a Champagne taste on your
"Little boy: 'Papa, what's a kaiser?'"
. "Fond parent: 'You're too young to hear such language.'" f
These are some of the clever little lines used as "fillers" in the trench

Don't Camouflage Your Temper
By Calling It Temperament
The Results Are, Identical
By BEATRICE FAIRFAX.
"All right; suit' yourself! Don't
bother about me. I'll do it. It will be
a long time before I ask another
favor of you!, though." The head
stenographer flounced out of the of
fice and back into her own sanctum.
Millie started after her resentfully.
"Now, what right had she to go up
in the air like that? I wasn't crazy to
stay after hours and help her get out
all those catalogues, but I suppose I
might have if she'd asked me different.
But when she comes out and says that
she supposes it's too much to ask of
me and she knows I don't take enough
interest in the firm to give up an eve
ning at the movies to get out their
work, I just naturally got riled and
said I wouldn't stay."
Now that head stenographer might
be an office manager or pethaps even
an official in the organization but
she can'u.keep her temper, and that
has blocked her own success. Some
times temper, hurts only the indiT
vidual. It interferes with his health,
it costs him friends, handicaps his
ability. Do you know that a great

from bad disposition? Ypu can't di

Temper handicaps the individual,
but it does more than that. It blocks
the success of an organization.
The other evening at a dinner party
I met the new' manager of a big film
corporation a film corporation that
has failed and must be reorganized
at a great loss. With wonderful stars,
good directors, clever scenario writers
and all the artists and literary back
grounds for success, nevertheless this
film company has failed completely.
And the reason is not far to seek.
Temper did itf Of course, in the
artistic world they often call temper

I remember watching this particu
lar organization take one single
scene. Husband and wife sat in the
dining room and the maid brought
in the morning coffee. The husband
was reading the paper and bis face
was hidden from the audience. So
"the temperamental male star" saw
no reaspn why he should bother with
a long stupid scene in which his face
never showed. Some one could
double for him. The "temperamental"
female star objected to" doing this
scene "with an extra" man. Bicker
ing and quarreling over that necessi
tated getting somebody who looked
lilce the "young wife" in the picture
to take the place of the ill tempered
Two mornings were spent on that
scene two mornings and a good
deal of salary and many feet of film
were eaten up while camera men
and directors tried to please . two
stars who, didn't know how to keep
their respective tempers.
In the end the scene was taken all
over again, with the stars instead of
their doubles, and even then it had
to be retaken several times because
an ill-tempered director so frightened
repeats these. Dqeloped in finely

Since its Introduction, here a short
time ago, the new treatment for cold
troubles, known as Vick's VapoRub,
haa aroused a great deal -of Interest
among local people, especially among
mothers with small children.
Local druggists report that num
bers have taken advantage of their
20 days' trial offer to see If a 25e Jar
of VapoRub really will relieve these
troubles externally, without having to
"dose" with nauseous internal medi
cines. . .
For croup, coughs, chest colds, sore
throat or bronchitis, apply VapoRub
well over the throat and chest, cover
ing with a .warm flannel cloth. Leave
the covering loose around the neck so
the vapors arising may be freely in
haled. . "
In addition, VapoRub is absorbed
through and stimulates the skin, tak
ing out that tightness and soreness in
the chest For head colds, catarrh,
hay fever, or asthmatic troubles,
VapoRub can either be applied bp the
nostrils,; or a little melted in a spoon
and the vapors Inhaled.
You baveVto try this treatment to
realize its remarkable effect in all
cases of cold troubles.
Every honest conviction is a jewel in the
crown of character. : :
By ADELAIDE KENNERLY.
HAVE you convictions of your very own? '
Are your beliefs real or imaginary?
And if you have convictions and beliefs, dd you live them?
Do you preach one tiling and practice another?
Each real belief is a solid foundation rock on which the castle of life
is built. . ,
But there is a weak spot in most persons the lack of courage.
A conviction, too often, is a flimsy thing buffsted about on the winds
of public opinion; utterly worthless to you ami to the world when put to
Your beliefs are locked in the vault of fear and are aired only on the
brightest days when there are no clouds of contradiction to meet them.
Each life is ordered differently and each person has a right to an in
dividual belief.. There is no shame in beinyf different; in having different
The courageous stand alone, for "God and one is a majority," and what
is right for one is wrong for another.
Somewhere in each person is a reason for beliefs. It may be the im
pressions of long past, or forgotten experiences; the stage of evolution, or
afiinitizing thought waves, or a hundred other reasons which nobody can
explain satisfactorily to. all.
The big point is f Do you live your beliefs? You need not spout them
on every corner and bore those who do not see as you do, but do ypu live
. J.ack of strong beliefs and honest convictions leaves the main line' of
life clear for the strong, but the side tracks are filled to overflowing with
the weaklings who have not the courage to back their opinions against
a critical woriu.
One honest conviction, solid enough to withstand the iibes of the
ses, is a jewel to be prized in the crown of character.
