Mrs. Calvin Coolldge as a volun-teer "Gray Lady of the Red Cross" reading to several of the disabled veterans of the World war at Walter Reed hospital In Washington. 2. Two patients at General Hospital No. 81 of the Veterans' bureau, New York city, fashioning "Buddy popples" which are sold throughout the country during the week of Memorial day by the Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States. Five million popples are distributed In practically every city and town In the eountry, and pro. eeeds being devoted exclusively to welfare work among disabled veterana. 3. A scene during one of the annual garden parties held on the lawn of the White House for disabled war vet-era- In Washington hospitals while Calvin Coolldge was President not constitute the total human cost of our brief participation In the World war. There were, In addition, scores of thousands of young men who either died In the training and concentration camps here in America, or In those camps contracted diseases with last-ing effects. "The total toll of war was sucb that death or disability claims have been filed for one-fift- h of all the men who served In tbe armed forces of the United States during tbe World war. Mors than half a million claims have been allowed. And nearly ted years after the war on July J, 192&-2- 50.. 000 veterans, were receiving disability compensation, That army of disabled Included men afflicted with anemia receiving from $40 to $100 a month, depending upon the seriousness of their condition. It Included thousands of men with Impaired hearts or ar-teries. We had and have scores of thousands of otoer cases Involving every disease or abnormal physical or mental condition from bronchiectasis to dementia precox." s Another aspect of this problem Is presented by General Lilnes In these words : i "As time goes on the obligation of the government changes.' The average age of the former service men Is now war In all history came to an end. For us It Is also a day for remembering the Americans who crossed the Atlantic to play their part In tbat titanic struggle and who never came back tbe 30,000 men who sleep beneath the white crosses In the Meuse-Argonn- St Mlhlel, Olse-Alsn- Alsne-Marn- Somme and Sureanes cemeteries In France, In Flanders . Held In Belgium and near Brookwood, England. But, most of all, It should be a time for remembering those who did come back, not the men who were returned unharmed to their rejoicing families, but the "human wreckage of war" men with blinded eyes, with deafened ears, with d lungs, with levered legs and arms, with shat-tered nerves, men whose precious years of youth aud opportunity bad been sacrificed for their country. How many of them are there? The best answer, to that Is a statement made by Gen. Frunk T. nines, direc-tor of the United States Veterans' bu-reau that more than six hundred mil-lions of dollars has been spent by the government In the rehabilitation of nearly 130,000 legless, armless, sight-less and otherwise crippled or phys-ically handicapped men to the point where they are cnpable of t; that more than 20,000 men and .women who served with the military forces of the United Stutes are now receiving treatment In government operated or supervised hospitals; that there are still In hospitals today more than 18,000 men who are undergoing treatment for disabilities due to their war service ; and that there are under guardianship 25,727 .veterans who are Incompetent to take care of their own affairs. "The problem of paying the human cost of the World war was a huge one In the beginning," says General Hines. "It Is still a major national 4 - ' problem. "Across 3.000 miles of ocean, In 1017 and 1018, we transported an army of 2,000,000 Americans, practically with-out loss of life from enemy guns, tor-- - pedoes or mines. "Across the same expanse of water, a little later, 117,000 wounded and sick were brought back to the United States some to live, some to die, , many not to know for years the price they must pay for their participation In the war. - Beyond tbe sea, on foreign soil, 80,000 soldiers of the American Ex-peditionary Force were killed in ac-tion, or died of wounds, Injuries or disease. "In the single great offensive opera-tion of the American First army, in the period between September 26 and November 11, 1018 the attack whlcb brought about tbe enemy's ap-peal for the armistice our losses were 117,000 In killed and wounded. "These Items, large as they are, do thirty-fou- r years. That age Is beyond the period of greatest susceptibility to tuberculosis. We shall have la Vet erans' bureau hospitals, therefore, fewer and fewer cases of tuberculosis. In 1022 we bad 12,000; now we have 6,500. "So, too, the surgical and general medical cases, Including, of course, shot and shell Injuries sustained In the war, have been decreasing. We had 10.000 In 1022. Now there are only 6,700. "But In another direction the obligation Is increasing. There has been a steady, upward trend In the number of veteran pa-tients with mental and nervous affile Hons. In 1019 there were less than 8,000 sucb patients, including those who bore the "invisible scars of war"; the d veterans. Now there are 13,000. Our medical experts estimate that the peak of such cases will not be reached until 1047, when, with the veterans at an aver-age age of fifty-thre- there probably will be between 40,000 and 50,000 suf-fering from nervous and mental dis-orders. We may have to provide hos-pital facilities for 16,000 of these un-fortunate veterans." Another estimate of tbe Increasing Importance and scope of rehabilita-tion Is given by the Disabled Ameri-can Veterans of the World War, a na-tional organization of disabled men established In 1021. This group has been named by congress as an official representative of the dis-abled who present claims to the nt According to William B. Tate, national commander, during the next decade, more than 275,000 men will need help as a result of disabilities Incurred during the war. So when Armistice day comes 'round each year. It behooves all Americans in the midst of their solemn celebra-tion of the day to give a thought not only to those "who gladly died" but also to tbat "lonelier company" of those "who still are crucified." 44444444t !

C TOO board a "wind Jammer" at IFValparaiso, Chile, and sail almost due west, on the eighth day out yon will sight an Island that bas been read about by more people than has any other little Island in tbe world. It Is Juan Fernundes, Rob-inson Crusoe's Isle. Strangely beautiful Is this Island Climbing 8,000 feet up from the sea. Its woody ridges lie wreathed In fan-tastic lacy patterns of silvery fog. As one rows ashore, the landscape rolls down like some giant theater's drop curtain, Its green ferns, forests and streams painted by nature's own hand. Now, where Crusoe bunted, bud. dies a hamlet of Chilean fisher folk, with the bouts and sheds of a lobster-catchin- g Industry. Delicate, delicious lobsters they are, but the men who catch them will clamber over a whole boatload to quarrel about a can of American sulmonl (Landward) Is the correct name of this Island on which Alexander Selkirk, reputed hero of Defoe's romance, was put ashore. Near by Is Santa Clara, or Goat Is-land, and about 100 miles westward ties or Further Out is-land. These three 1 form the Juan Fernandes group, named after the Spaniard who discovered them In 1563. Now tbey belong to Chile in law; but In Imagination every school boy on earth claims a proprietary In-terest here. High up the side of stands a tablet which reads: In Memory ot Alexander Selkirk, Mariner, A native of Largo, In the county of Fife, Scotland, who lived on this Island In complete solitude for four years and four months. lie was landed from the Cinque Ports gal-ley, 06 tons. 10 guns, A. D. 1704. and was taken off In the Duke, pri-vateer, 12th Feb., 1700. He died Lieutenant of H. M. S. Weymouth A D. 1723, aged 47 years. This tab-let Is erected near Selkirk's lookout, by Commodore Powell and the off-icers of U. M. S. Topaze, A. D. 1868. To day on this Island one hears much talk about lobsters, but little of Robinson Crusoe, The easy-goin- Spanish-speakin- g Inhabitants, shut off from the world and the scores of books describing their island, do not sus-pect how famous it Is. Nearly all Its 287 people make s living in the lob-ster trade. Huge Lobster Industry. Here Is one of the most extraordi-nary shellflsh Industries In the world. In one year 80,000 or more lobsters are caught not counting the small ones thrown back. Time was when these creatures swarmed the shores in such armies that the Islanders had only to strew bits of meat along the beach, then walk about with a stick and tip tbe lobsters over on tbelr backs. Due to wise conservation methods of the Chilean government, Island waters still abound with lobsters ; but now tbey are caught with hoop nets set off shore and baited with stale fish. Tbe fishermen go out, long before dawn to tend the traps. Over a char-co- al stove astern they make coffee and broil fish for breakfast but nobody ever eats a lobster. To keep the catch alive, buckets of sea water are dashed over the crawl-ing creatures and a tarpaulin Is used to shade them from the sua No lob-ster remains long In good health and spirits out of salt water. So, usually within 24 hours after catching them, the Crusoe Island fishermen try to get their lobsters to port and Into the "live cars." These are scows made of slats, floating In Cum-berland bay, In which the lobsters are held captive. Twice a month a boat sails from the Island. It carries the scant mall, any passengers, and a load of lobsters, whlcb are often two and a half feet long and weigh as much as from ten to twelve pounds. On the Island the price paid the fishermen Is but nom-inal; yet In the market at Valparaiso a live Crusoe Island lobster may bring the equivalent of from three to five dollars. On a cafe table In Buenos Aires the same lobster, after bis trans-Andea- n trip, sells for more. The lobster of Juan Fernandes (Pallnustus frontalis (Milne Edwards)) Is minus the large claws which dis-tinguish the lobster of our North At lantic waters (Bomarus amerlcanus). It Is a close relative of the American crawfish known as tbe spiny lobster In Florida. Besides wild goat shooting, fishing around the Island's rocky shores af-fords all the amazing luck that an-glers' tales are spun from. Here are the big morays, or wolf flsh, fierce and voracious; then the fighting vldrlola, or what we would call amber jacks, or yellowtall, which occur all up this coast Around Juan Fernandes the latter often weigh 100 pounds or more. Many kinds of sea bass also abound, with no end of delicate pan fish the furel, corblna, weakflsh or croaker, the pampanlto and palometa, the smelt the Jergullla. Here, too, the flying flab Is eaten. Storehouse of Fiction. There is probably more excuse for Action about Juan Fernandes tbaa about any other place Its size on earth. For 300 years pirates, earthquakes, whalers, penal colonies, battle, and po. Iltlcal storms have swept this now calm and dreamy Island. In the hill-side above Cumberland bay oue sees the tiers of cells, like the Roman cat-acombs, dug to bold prisoners wben Chile used' the Island as a penal col-ony. Out in tbe harbor lies the hulk of the German cruiser Dresden, sunk during the World war. Once vast packs of sea lions haunted the Island rocks. Anson, English buc-caneer, wrote home that there were so many of these creatures here that he couldn't move a ship's boat with-out putting a man in ber bows with an oar to drive them aside. Traders slew them for oil, and wild dogs killed their younj on the beaches; so now the sea lions seldom frequent these waters. To kill off the wild goats, and thus cut off the fresh meat supply for the English and Dutch pirates who plagued tbe coast, Spanish rulers of Chile long ago sent bands of dogs to this island ; but the plan failed. The dogs couldn't catch the goats among the rocks. There may be burled pirate chests on this Island. Qulen sabeT But priceless treasure, Indeed, was left by Anson and other early explorers. They planted vegetables and frnlt seeds, and let loose pigs, cows and horses. It was an unwritten law, tradition says, that every ship calling here In old days, whether merchant whaler, or buccaneer, should leave animals or plants, and thus help stock the Island for the common good. In consequence the variety of useful plant life here Is unparalleled In the Pacific. Cows, pigs and horses are plentiful also. Boys chase wild horses around the grassy canyons where Crusoe and Fri-day hunted goats. In a single gaiuen, a spot of daz-zling beauty, belonging to a French-man shipwrecked here more than thlr. ty years ago, Is an astounding group-ing of exotic and native plants and trees. Here grew, among other things, the botanically famous chants palm, of whlcb highly polished walking sticks are made. The creamy-whit- e wood feels like satin and Is marked with glistening black lines. Many Wrecks on Its Shores. Far np tbe moist Island slopes are giant green ferns, bizarre and out-landish, like the fantastic plant life pictured to us as shading the earth In the time of mud and reptiles. Ex-cept where trails have been cut or fires have burnt them off, these ferns are so big and thick that It Is hard to walk among them. Juan Fernandes has a few good beaches, but mostly Its shores are rocky, rough, or steep, with swift cur-rents whirling past towering volcanic cliffs. Many a stout ship has plied up here as can be seen from moss-grow- n remains of forgotten wrecks. Long ago Captain Shelvocke's Speed-well went to pieces on these rocks. At that time cats, multiplied from a few left ashore by earlier ships, fairly overran the island. Shipwrecked sail-ors from the Speedwell lived for weeks on cat meat Tbelr hunger found more substantial relief from one meal of cat meat than from five meals of seal or fish, wrote Shelvocke In his Journal. There are no wheeled vehicles on the Island, and nowhere on Its whole 40 square miles Is a road only paths. There Is a school and a seldom-attende- d church, but there are no places of amusement No stores ; Just one room in the lobster factory at Cumberland bay, open twice a week, where natives may buy articles from the mainland through an agent of the lobster-catchin- g company.

WIliBOQEEa I Build Longest Bridge) to Carry Phone Cables Out In Arizona the telephone com-pany bas constructed what Is believed to be the longest suspension bridge of Its kind In the world, across the Gila river, says the New England Utility News. It was necessary to erect two towers 100 feet high on each side of tbe river from which were suspended two cables supporting cross-arm-s car rylng the open telephone wires of the toll circuits. The span between tbe towers is 2,370 feet and approximate-l- y 8(10 feet longer than the span be-tween tbe towers of Brooklyn bridge. This type of construction was nec-essary because, while the Gila river during a large part of tbe year Is a very shallow stream, there are times wben sudden floods turn It Into a rag-ing torrent wblcb would make It In-advisable to cross the river by means of a submarine cable; such a cable necessitating a length of more than 0 feet, whlcb la considered the ex-treme length that can be used with-out loading pots. If loading pots were placed within the stream area, much difficulty might be experienced at flood times.

LAXATIVE ' i filial In 1875, an earnest young man began to practice medicine. As a' family doctor, he saw the harm in harsh purgatives for constipation and began to search for something , harmless to the sensitive bowels. Out of his experience was born a famous prescription. He wrote it thousands of times. It proved an ideal laxative for old'and young. As people saw how marvelously the most sluggish bowels are started and bad breath, headaches, fever-ishne- ss, nausea, gas, poor appetite, and such disorders, are relieved by the prescription, it became neces-sary tp put it up ready for use. Today, Dr. Caldwell's Syrup Pep-sin, as it is called, is the world's most popular laxative. It never varies from Dr. Caldwell's original effective and harmless formula. All drugstores have it ' Cattle' Fate a Problem Can a castle nnder water be a land-mar- Is a question puzzling Ayrshire people. - Wben the level of Loch Door Is raised to provide elec-tricity for the Galloway district of Scotland the old fortress will be sub-merged under the surface of tbe lake.
