A Modest Request A LOCAL citizen, interested in the uokeep and beautification of the Malakoff cemetery, called at the News office this week with a plea that a request be made of the citizenship to always Close the gates to the cemetery when entering. On numerous recent visits to the cemetery, this citizen has found the gates standing open and stray cows making a pasture of the fenced inclosure. There is an unlimited quantity of shrub- bery, rose bushes, etc. now in the cemetery, that not only cost considerable money, but much time and effort has been expend- ed in their planting and care. These should be protected against stray stock, and it is only fair that all should help to protect the efforts of those who have been thus Interested. Therefore, let us caution those who have been negligent in the matter of keep ing closed the gates that offer entrance to our little City of the Dead If not now, some day you may have a loved one's resting place there that you will want to protect also, L It, end th~ Adver~t~men11, OUR BEHAVIOR By LEONARD A. BARRETT Spinoza, who wrote about 16,50, ex. pressed many profound truths in terse and pithy sen- tences. We quote the following: "Men believe a thing when They behave as if It were true." h later hmerl- c a n philosopher. W I 1 1 ! a m James, voiced the same thought when he coined the phrase "t h e pragmotle test," hy which he meant that the final test of the validity of any statement was the testimony of experience. The way we behave convinces others that we believe what we say. Someone has recently said that one of the most difficult problems in life Is to get a person honestly to believe what he thinks he believes and to act accordingly. In other words, we can never successfully convince an- other of something we do not our- selves helleve, in the circus life. Bar- num may have been right, that the people wanted to he fooled, and lie proposed to fool them. On the other hand. from a much more responsible source, we ltave the thought that while we may fl)ol some of the people some of tim time we cannot fool all the peo- ple all of the time. True! We be- lieve a thing when we behave as if It were true. Nowhere Is the truth of thls saying more fully t|ttested than In the bUsl- hess world. Unless our attitude con- vinces a customer that we believe in the things we offer for sale. we will not get far In closing a contract. Unless the workmanship in tim article proves to he what we claim for it. a return order is not likely to be received. Un. less we ourselves believe what w~ say is true, we shall have a difficult time In convincing others no matter lmw meritorious may be the proposition un- der eonslderatlon. In the realm of character the same law holds true. "What you are speaks so loud I cannot hear what you say." We may believe In those traits of c/mr. acter essential to success, but unless we heltave as we believe, our friends soon lose faith in us and we wonder why. In King Lear we read.

England's Chancellor of Exchequer The duties of the cliancellor of the exchequer are concerned with the col- lection of revenues and the manage- ment of the flmds accuu|ulated.

D. by Constantine the Great. and to require that mail sent to res~ dents of the city be addressed Instan bul histead of Constantluople. Two years after Constantine found ed the city lie made It the seat of tlw Roman empire In the East and oificlall) liamed it New Rome to Indicate lt,~ political position. But It was popular. ly called Consvantinople to perpetuate the fame of its founder. After the capture of the city in 14"53 by the Turks it became the capital of the Ot- toman empire. Constantinople is really a collection of towns and villages lying on both sides of the Golden Horn and along the Bosporus. There are four general sec- tions, however, consisting of Eyup, ls- tambol (the Greek section south of the Horn on the site of old Byzantium), Galata (the chief business center and seaport on the Horn) and ScutarL Foreigners have always called the entire city Constantinople, while the Turks called it Istamboi, a name which oat~lderi applied to the typically Turk- lsh section, which Is bounded on the west by the Sea of Marmots, on the east by the Golden Horn. and on the mouth by the ancient city walls. The name lstanbul Is the Turkish form of Istambol. It is derived from the Greek and literally means "Into the city."-- Cleveland Plain Dealer. Oratorio and Opera Both Were Started in Italy An oratorio Is a sacred story set to music which, like opera, requires so- loists, chorus and till orchestra for its performance, i)ut dispenses with the theatrical adjuncts of scenery, cos~ tumes and acting. The modern ora- torio and opera both were originated in Italy, about 160(}. says a writer in the Philadelphia Inquirer. and were originally indistinguishable from each other, except that one was sacred and the other secular in subject. However, before 17(#3, particularly In Germany, the oratorio began to be clearly dif- ferentiated from the opera, in the re- linquishment of dramatic action and ~uecessorles. and canle to belong essen- tially to the class of concert music, with more or less of the quatltics of church music. The true oratorto st3"la bus been developed more remarkably In Germany and England rather than France or Italy. The first and ahnost universal sub- Ject for oratorios was the Passion and the greatest music is that of Bach's "Passion According to St. Matthew," wrltlen for service .l~ Good Friday, 1729. In En.~Iand [i~e works of ihiudel tree.t,.~i epics as sulijects for oratorios, Inhabitants of Pitcalrn Island Pltcairn island is a solitary island in the Pacific ocean, between Aus- tralia and South America, in 25 de- grees 3 mhtutes south latitude and ]30 degrees S minutes west longitude. It is about 2 miles long and 1 mile broad. It was discovered by Carteret in 1767. In 1790 It was take~ pos- session of by nine of the mutineers of H. M. S. Bounty with six Tahitian men and a dozen women, the ringlead- er being called G2~ristlan. Of nine British sailors, only one, Adams, was left in 1800, and from him the present Inhabitants are descended. The island was annexed to Britain In 1839. Near. ly 200 of the islanders were transferred to Norfolk island in 1856, hut a number of them afterward returned. t Sho~ From Shark Skins There are 500 kinds of sharks In the world, but the skin from only three speclesare uimd pflnclpall~, to provide leather for making shoes. These ar~ the Arctic. the tropical and the sllk Idmrk, the latter being caught off the Portuguese coast. Shoes made from the Arctic shark have a woolly appear, anee. and are useful on the golf course. Womens' shoes are made from the silk Ihark and one of Its moat popular usel li for handbags. Sharks are caught In large fish-nets about 200 yarchs long, and six yards deep. Bonos May Verify Legend Unearthing of 12 skeletons of un- usually tall men at the spot of Ron* cevales, France, where legend says Roland and hls fearless knights made thelr last stand againsl the Moors In 778, may substantiate the story. His- torians declare the find proves that the traditional French hero really made his gallant fight. The discoveries were made during preparations for the erec- tion of a monument to Roland on the summit of Ibaneta in the Pyrenees.
