Withers, Pastor i * 7 At the regular Sunday morning serv­ ice of 'worship at 10:45 the pastor will preach the Baccalaureate sermon to the graduating class of Rushville high school. This is a union meeting of the Methodist and Congregational churches. Sunday school meets in all depart­ ments at 12 o’clock, immediately fol- loAving this service. Y. P. S. O. E. meets at 6:30 p. m. with Miss Althea Schweickhard as leader. The topic for this meeting is “ How Important Is Money?” ♦ The red-shouldered hawk and the broad-Avingod haAvk prey upon the de­ structive rodents of the farm, and they are enormously valuable to agricul­ ture. The most destructive hawks we have over large areas of our central and southern states are the sharp- shinned and the Cooper’s hawk. These hawks usually perch in a tree. In many places pole traps are set up for the purpose of catching hawks. The broad-winged hawk and the red­ shouldered Jiavk do not; hide in a tree; they do not feel that it is necessary for them to secrete themselves. Along comes an enthusiastic, wen-meaning but not well-informed game protector; he puts up a pole trap because he saw a hawk catch a quail. Flying slowly across the field, comes a hawk which is beneficial to' agricultural interests, alights on the pole to look around the meadow for the mouse or rat that is working near, raid is caught, instantly, and subsequently reported among the other vermin that have been killed.— T.

Gave Oriental Tales to Western Readers On February 17, 1715, there passed into the great unknown a man whose name is all but forgotten, but to whom a vast multitude of readers owe a great debt of gratitude. Antoine Gal- land was the discoverer and the first to translate and introduce to the AVest- ern world the “Arqbiah Nights” euter- taipment^, qr “The Thousand and One Nights.” Galland was born in 1646 of humble parents, but he early manifest­ ed such talent that he was enabled to secure an excellent education. He was appointed as attache to the French embassy at Constantinople, and devoted himself to the study of eastern authors and the collection of oriental literature. He traveled much, and in Bagdad he gained his first knowledge of the classic tales of the days of Bagdad’s glory, under the re­ gime of the immortal Haroun A1 Raschid in the Ninth century. He be­ gan his work pf translation at once and in 1904 his “Mille et une Nutts” was published. Galland’s learning was prodigious, and he ranks among the greatest ori­ entalists pf all time, but it is to the “Aragiap Nights” that be owes his lasting fame. Macaroni combined with diced celery, green pepper, pimento aqd onion or cucumber, makes a hearty attractive dish for a summer meal. A meeting of the officers of the Re­ union Association of Rushville school was held Thursday evening at the home of Mrs. Anna Headley and plans made for the biennial reunion Avhich will be held Ibis year.
