Sea 2c EDITO_ IAL The quarrel of some lost airmen who got in~ o a knockdown argument as soon as their troubles vere sup­posed to be over and they were pro­perly rescu d illustrates the fact tllat most people can endure hardship bet­ter than success. There is something tonic in d:: m­ger. And prosperity is a dangerous drink. Doubtless these three men in their lost balloon, or wandering with death just around the corner, and every dread moment laden with dic­aster stood bravely enourrh shoul ! er to shoulder. If the worst had C0me, if a P? c:< of wolves had attacked them, for in­stance, they would have gone heroical­ly do-: vn fighting the common terro::, brothers to the end. But when triumph came and fame and fortune opened to thel;), i! l came the old snakes of envy and c: s:' or:! that fro: n the beginnng have Jn2-:: l this earthly paradise a hell. It is the law. Strikes and other labor troubles occur in prosperous times. Over pro­fits men fight. Fronting loss, ruin or death, men come together. The same kind of phenomenon can be seen written in modern times and it is being re- enacted at the pres­sent. When Germany broke loose all civilhatiO: J was in peril. Mankind shuddered. Belgium was prostrate. France saw her ancient enemy strid­ing her fields. Italy trembled before the old- time invader. Britain saw her sh: p3 destroyed by a secret enemy. America gasped at the news of tha Lusitania. So danger, mother of manhoo:!, clasped her children. The world felt a unity it had never known. The shad­ew of tt rror accomplished what 1~ lan7 gospe: s had failed to do. French, British, Italian, American kept step as blood brothers. ThE: Y fought. They won. Anrl with the winning came the spiritual tradgedy. Jedously, envy, discord, the hate makers and mischief breeders sprang t~ life. The ancient grudge of Amer­ica against England was revived i! l­c. ustrio12s1y by certain newspapers on both sides. The effort of the poor world to r. tay to ' e. her in peace, as they h~: 1 _ 0 00, tog ther in war, found a thou­sand en~ mies. Is tradgeJy our only hope? Can Y'e fi> 1d a largeness of mind and hero­ism of spirit only in the embrace of misery? Can " e ihd nobleness of life only in the shadow of death? Let the hero beware his hour of triumph, for in it is his greatest peril. - The Keystone ...... The Mary Celeste ( Continued from Page 1.) sign of violence, nor of any sort of trouble. The ship's papers and chrono­meter Y. ere the only articles of im­port: mce that were gone. The ship's lop: con~ ained no hint of tradgedy. ' P:, e:- e ''-. 3S not a clue that might lead h the soiution of the riddle of where tho~ e two SCOle people had gone, and to this da~, there has never been a '- or.! which thre- w sansible light on t: 1e extr~ ordinary mystery. - The Keystone : iii I'" '=-"'/ 0 kitt(!~ s were watching a tennis match. F: rst: " Aw, let's go." Second: " No, wait a minute, myoId man's in this racquet." CIT"" City Girl: " And I suppose at dusk, IVhen the sun is stealing over the Rockies in purple splendor, you cow­boys are huddled around the camu­fire and listening to the weiru, eerie, unnatural howling of the coyotes." Rattlesnake Gus: " Well, ma'am, not ezzactly. Usually we go inside and listen to Amos and Andy." The Diesel Engineer's Ten Commandments 1. Thy engine is thy engine; thou shalt keep it clean and in ad­justment, that thy life in its company may be long, and that the Captain mayest increase thy rate. 2. Know thy engine in all its parts and functions else tho'] shall be beached in some unholy spot. 3. Be not wise in thine own con­ceit. Remember thine engine's factory instructions and keep them holy, lest repairs at sea be'thine undoing. 4. Be thou not loose in the jaw hinges; no man knoweth all about Diesels; the truly wise absorb much knowledge and exude little save on request, and he who so doeth shall gain great repute among hs fellows, and the favor of his superiors. 5. For all things in this life that thou desire thou shalt also pay ' plenty and for the wisdom of experi­ence no less; advice from the multi­tude usually costeth nothing muc: 1 and is generally worth that, net. 6. From the books of Diesel practice thou mayest know what to do and when; but only costly experi­ence or the lips of a man truly wise may tell thee the instant of the when, and true values of the new; else th; knowledge of the what and the when shall but plague thee with smoky ex­haust, which dammeth thee before all knowing observers. 7. God maketh the earth to ro­tate endlessly without bearings or good lubrication; leave thou not thine engine so, else thou shalt be blistercl in thine Captain's wrath. 8. Curse not thine engine whe 1 it turneth not; curse rather thine own stupidity. 9. Steam engines and gas may long operate though sloppy; a Diesel not so; with gauges and mikes be thou busy. 1. The Eternal Eye watcheth Universal Operation, but thou shalt not rely upon it as to thy Diesel; thine own eternal vigilance is the price thou payest for thy job. - The Keystone ••• " Did that explosion happen on Si's farm ?" " Yes. He fed his chickens some lay­or- bust feed, and one of them was a rooster."
