And usually, he has a heck of a lot of things happen to him, too. Well, sir. Pete is no exception to that rule. He's had plenty of things happen to him. But the most hair.raising of them all was that adventure In Australia. in the spring of 1922 ilia ship sailed out of San Francisco In May, and Its first stop was at a pert that went by the peculiar name of Rockhampton Meat Works. It was Just a canning factory dock, about four miles from the town of Rockhampton on the northaast coast of Australia. Rockhampton itself was only a small town. The whole doggone region wasn't very thickly populated. Between ths town and the meat works there was a strip of desert that wasn't Inhabited at all. It was Pete's first trip to Australia and he wanted to see the place, so he decided to take a walk to Rockhampton. Before he left he arranged to meet some of his shipmates In town at a Imb run by a man named Jack Oak. He started out about 4 o'clock In the afternoon. And as he left a longshoreman warned him: *'Watch out for dingoes. This part of the country is full of them."~ Ever Hear of Dingoes? They're Wild Dogs Pete had heard of dingoes--the wild dogs of Australia--but he had never thought there'd be any that near the coast. He didn't take the longshoreman's warning any too seriously, but he did cut himself a good stout stick to defend ~lmself with, Just in case some of those wild pooches did come along. Pete walked for about two miles without seeing a sign of any wild animal. He had covered half his Journey by then, and he was beginning to think that longshoreman's story was Just a lot of horse feathers. Then suddenly he hettrd a ~harp yelp behind him and whirled about. There, not a hundred feet away from him were six dingoes, their heads down, foam dripping from their Jaws, making for him at full speed. Pete knew better than to try to run from a pack of dogs. That was Just what they wanted. A dog is most dangerous when pursuing a fleeing quarry. He stood in his tracks and faced the oncoming beasts, thanking hla lucky stars that he had stopped to cut the stick, which he now held poised, ready to swing at tha first dingo that came at him. "In a few seconds," Pete says, "they were on me. I swung the stick and beat the first one off. I had barely time to whip the stick up again when an- other Jumped. I knocked that one down. Then the dogs drew off a bit and began to circle around me." That was what Pete had been afraid of. Once they began lunglng at him from all sides, he would not be able to defend himself. He'd have given any- thing at that moment for a tree--a wall--a rock--anything he could get his back The Snarling Devils Were Lunging at Him From All Side~ np against. Anything that would keep those snarling, snapping devils out In front of him, where he could hold them off. But on that fiat, sandy stretch of Australian desert there was no shelter for miles. Odds Against Him Were Six to One. Behind him a third dog growled and closed in. Pete turned to beat him off, and aa he did so another leaped at his throat. If that doff had made it tha battle would have been all over--but somehow he managed to get his stick between him and the animal. A fifth dog Jumped and tore the sleeve off Pete's coal For ten minutes Pete fought on. He didn't get off unscathed, either. That dog that had taken his coat sleeve had taken a little flesh along with it. His trousers were in shreds, and blood was streaming from his fingers, legs trod arms. "I was pretty weak from swinging," he says, *'and from the loss of blood, although by that time I had almost beaten one of the dingoes to death, they were still coming at me." Courage Plus a Big Stick Saved Him. Then the battle began to turn in Pete's favor. Two of the dingoes ran away Another was laid out on the sand, half dead from the beating Pete had given it. He made another vicious swing and laid out another dog, but the remaining two still kept coming. By that time coura0e began to come creeping back into Pete's body. He began to feel that maybe he could handle those two remaining dogs after all, And then over the top of a sand dune came a man--a native of the country. He raised a rifle and there was a sharp crack. The last two dogs turned and ran, and In another minute Pete was being half carried toward the town of Rockhampton. The Australian took Pete to Jack Oak's pub. and they put n couple of stiff drinks of brandy into him and tied up his wounds. After that. Pete felt better again. Jack Oak drove him back to his ship in bis car, and the ship's doctor did the rest. But here's the Joke of the whole business. "If I had only known enot~gh to light a match," says Pete. "I'd have been all right, because the dlng~es don't like fire and won't go anywhere near it.*' t~-WNU Service. Tobacco Used aa Remedy for Cholera in France During the cholera epidemic In France in 1831 the use of tobacco was said to induce immunity. To ward off illness while the plague of 1665 was in progress in London every- one was urged to smoke. Small chil- dren were compelled to take tobacco. At Eton classes were instructed to pause and light up at frequent Inter- vale. writes Charles Smutny in the Chicago Tribune. Who first brought the plant to Eu- rope Is not established, nor is It cer. tain who smoked the first pipeful. Jean Nicer. whose name remains to- day in nicotine, sent tobacco seeds to France aboat 1560. Within five years Sir John ltawktns returned to Eng- land wlt~ tobacco., Mast of Europe and parts of Africa and Asia had the weed by the opening of the Seven. and later fashionable through the ex ample of Sir Walter Raleigh. Every schoolboy knows the legend of the drenching of Sir Walter Ra. lelgh by his valet. This faithful fel- low, for the first time seeing smoke issuing from the mouth and nostrils of his master, helleved hlm to be afire and promplly emptied a bawl of warer, ale, or beer ow.,r Sir Walter. The beverage changes as do the characters In the anecdote. Slightly varied ver- sions ore given for Richard Tarleton and others.

It should be understood and taught not as a piece of far-off ancient history, but as a portrayal of modern conditions. I. The Son's Insubordination (v. 12). There is every indication that this was a happy home. but a devll emered it and stirred up discontent in tim heart of the younger son. lie became tired of the restraints of home. His desire for freedom moved him wilfully to choose to leave home to throw off the constraints of a father's rule. Sin is the desire to be free from the re- straints of rightful authority and is selfish indulgence. It starts out with wrong thoughts about God. II. The Son's Departure (v. 13). Having made the fatal derision, he went posthaste to the enjoyment of his cherished vlslon. He. therefore. got his goods in portable shape and withdrew from his father's presence. Adam and Eve, after they had sinned. hid themselves. The son could not stand the presence of his father, so he hastened away. When the sinner casts off allegiance to God, he takes all that he has with him. Ill. The Son's Degeneration (vv. 13, 14). He had hls good time while his mon* ey lasted, but the end came quickly. Indications are that his course was soon run. From plenty ia his father's house to destitution in the far coun- try was a short Journey. The sinner comes to realize the "'famine" when the very powers which ministered to bls pleasure are burned out. IV. The 8on's Degradation (vv. 15, 16). His friends lasted only while he had money. When his money was all gone he was driven to hire out to a cltizen to feed swine. It was indeed a change from a son in his father's house, to feeding swine In a far country. It ia ever so that those who will not serve God are made siaves to the Devil (Rom. 6:16). This vividly portrays the story of many men and women about us, and ts a picture of the inevitable consequences of siu. V. The Son's Restoration (vy. 17- 24). 1. He "came to hlmself" (v. 17). When he reflected a bit he was made conscious that though he had wronged his father and ruined himself, yet he was a son of his father. In the days of his sinnlng he was beside himself. The sinner continues in sin because he Is insane. The world calls the sinner wtm ]eaves off his evil ways crazy, but in reality be has Just become sane~ If sinners could be induced to think seriously of their rendition, it would be easy to get them to turn from their sins. 2. His resolution (v. 18). His re- flection ripened into resolution. The picture of his home, where even the hired servants had a superabundance, moved him to make a decision to leave the far country and go home. 3. His confession (vv. 18,.19). He ac- knowledged that his sin was against heaven and hls father, that he had forfeited his rights to be called a son. and begged to be given a place as a hired servant. 4. His action (v. 20). Resolutio~t will not avail unless accompanied with action. When the confesslon is genu- Ine, action will follow. 5. HIs reception by Ms father (vv. 20-24). The father had not forgotten his son. No doubt during these years he longed for the son's return. He must often have looked for hlm, for he beheld him when he was a great way off. So axioos was he for him that he ran to meet him and fell upon his neck and klssed him. So glad was the father that he even did not hear the son's confession through, but or- dered the tokens of honor to be ptaced upon him, receiving him back Into a son's position. ~hen the feast was made, expressive of the Joy of his heart. God Is love; Jesus came to reveal God. This parable lays bars God's heart.

Firestone conceived the idea that farm work would be easier, faster, and more economical if it were done on rubber. It was on the Old Homestead farm in Columbiana County, Ohio, which Mr. Firestone stR! operates, that he directed engineers and developed a practical pneumatic tire for tractors and every other wheeled implement on the farm. The result was a super.traction tire so unusual in design and so amazing in performance that a patent was issued on the tire by the United States Patent Office at Washington. On tractors, Firestone Ground Grip Tires will do the work 25 per cent faster with a saving of 25 per cent in fuel cost. On sprayers, combines, binders and other farm implements they reduce draft 40 to 50 per cent;, do not pack the soil, sink into soft ground or make ruts; protect equipment; do not damage crops and vines; speed up every farm operation. One set of tires will fit several implements. Tires can be changed quickly from one implement to another. Two or three sets are all you need to take care practically all your farm implements. See the Firestone Tire Dealer, implement dealer or Firestone Auto Supply and Service Store today--and in placing your order for new equipment, be sure to specify Firestone Grotmd Grip Tires on your new tractor farm implement.
