May Solve Cyclops Mystery.
The accident to the naval collier
Orion may explain the fate which
overtook hey sister ship, the Cyclops.
A disaster was narrowly averted
when the plates on the Orion were
sprung during a severe storm off Vir
ginia. Her keel was twisted under
the strain of straddling choppy waves.
The Orion was heavily loaded at the
time but managed to make port though
The disappearance in 1918 of the
Cyclops, with a full cargo and 290
persons on board, is one of the many
mysteries of the sea. This huge ves
sel, almost similar to the Orion, was
never heard from after leaving the
Barbados though equipped with radio
and lifeboats. Germany has no rec
ord of any of her submarines torpe
doing the Cyclops.
It is possible that she met the fate
which so nearly befelll her sister ship.
This conjecture has been left with
the naval court appointed to deter

Shining Examples.
The rathfimler.
There died recently in separated
cities two men whose lives should be
examples to others.
After a remarkable useful career of
82 years, the Rev. Dr, Russell Con
well. lecturer and educator, passed
away in Philadelphia. Unnumbered
people, old and young, have cause to
remember him. He was often re
ferred to as the "penniless million
aire" because the large fortune earned
from his speeches and writings was
used to educate needy and ambitious
young men.
Even on bis deathbed Dr. Conwell
found time to pen the following lines
of inspiration which he called “My
“I ask not for a larger garden,
But for finer seed.
I ask not for a more distant view.
But for a clearer vision of the hills
I ask not to do more deeds.
But more effective ones.
I nsk not for a longer life,
But a more efficient one.”
Heavy Lansburgh, of Washington,
was prominent in fraternal and other
circles. His will stipulated that the
mausoleum containing his body should
bear the simple inscription, “Call Me
Henry,” as he was known to a host
of friends and admirers.
But this was not the thing that
wins mention of Mr. Lansbnrgh's
name in these columns.
Rather, it was his broad sympa
thies, civic pride and generosity.
Though a Jew, he gnve freely to in
stitutions of many faiths. In re
membering Protestant and Catholic
clergymen alike, he called them his
“very dear friends.” Negro and white
orphans, without distinction, and the
aged, the sick and the infirm have
reason to honor him.
If there were more Dr. Conwelte
nnd Henry Lansburghs in the world
the path to peace would not be so
“Say It With Flowers.”
The Pathfinder.
A peculiar custom has grown up in
the underworld of Chicago.
Whenever a gangster, gunman,
root logger, cut-throat or thief passes
in his cheeks his pals buy thousands
of dollars worth of flowers for his
funeral. At a recent burial the
flowerß coat $30,000,
It is hard to unndenitand such an
esthetic, not to say feminine, taste
among /uch rough-bark men. Pos
sibly they think that flowers enough
will offset the bad odor of a criminal,
misspent life. It is apparent that
a sort of rivalry in the matter has
sprung up.
If things go on in the same direc
tion and at the preeent rate, there
will be 0m much money in the flower
business at Chicago as-'in bootleg

Letter to Pape Draws Fire.
The Pathfinder.
The action of Clinton N. Howard,
chairman of the united committee on
prohibition enforcement, in asking the
pope to use his influence to make
Catholics in this country obey the
dry law has led to these develop
ments :
Several Protestant bodies represent
ed on the committee have disclaimed
both responsibility nnd knowledge of
the letter. A few have severed their
connections with the group.
A large number Os Catholic organi
sations stamp the move aq “impu

part of Howard's letter to the Vati
