Their ave seemed the :here wonder- ae when I remember that they real brain such as I have and have a nmch large number ,~es (limbs) to operate in do they do it? Ob- part of the answer (a small is to be found in the quipment possessed by them. my interest in crab actions refreshed the other day received from a professor in ersity of Maryland a paper by pupils describing the motor of the insides of a lpt to read the paper show- degree of patience, skill, on the part of the who wrote it that I felt much astonished as I do how a crab acts as soon found that much of LPtion of a crab's motors was for me. It would have to get many of,the de- mind, but I did notice which seemed to be plain that for operation of cer- of appendages the crab is the case in our bodies and limbs where there are considerable numbers of fairly long muscles. However, the crab has a few long slender muscles, perhaps one of the best examples being in one pair of antennae (feel- ers). However that may be he seems to have what he needs, just as we do, and we all know he is able to use them very effectively. In spite of my diffictulty in getting a fair understanding of the intricacies of structure of the crab's motors I feel that it is nothing as compared with my difficulty in understanding how he operates them so well. O~at- side of my ordinary routine of walk- ing I have a lot of trouble getting one pair of legs to do what I want, e. g., to bend porperly at the right time in my swing at a golf ball. It gives me a headache to try to imagine how a crab operates several times as many legs without any apparent hitch, e.g., hooking the correct one on to a little splinter of rock while dodging into a little crevice at full speed. But I have one advantage of him. Since seeing this paper I know more about the structure of his motor equipment than he does. If that helps any. ----: O: -- Come to Catalina and be charmed. ARE YOU ASHAMED OF YOUR BUSINESS? NO! THEN ADVERTISE IT Is there any Ieason why you should feel ashamed of your busi- ness, Mr. Merchant? Certainly there is no secret about it, for no legal and honest business need fear the ligh~ of publicity ... Will you lose money by advertis- ing? It is safe to say you will not, because thousands of the more sue- eess.ful merchants throughout the nation are advertising every week, and there is a general trend upward in their bank accounts. Do the people approve of adver- tis.ing? Certainly they do. The average woman reads the advertise- ments as regularly as she reads the society column. Why ?

FUNERAL DI R EE~TOR 1719 South Flower Street, at 18th Attendant Los Angeles, California "ON TO RICHMONDI" EARLY in June, 1861, the editorial eolunm In the New York Tribune declared "THE NATION'S WAlt CItY : Forward to ltlehmondI Forward to Richmond! The Rebel congress must not be allowed to meet there on the 20th of July. By that date the place must be held by the National army." Coml)osed by Fitz-Henry Warren of the Tribune staff, it was run by order of Charles A. Dana, then managing editor. But every one believed that Horace Greeley trod originated It. Day after day It appeared. Soon the whole North had taken up the cry, "On to Richmond !" By July the govern- ment could disregard it no longer. Gen. Irvin McDowell was ordered to advance with l{ls raw, untrained troops. The result was the battle of Bull Run on July 21 when the Union forces were utterly routed with a loss of nearly 3,000 killed, wounded and missing. The disaster was a terrible blow to the North. Greeley published a signed statement disclaiming responsibility for the defeat. But he was blamed for It, nevertheless. His bitter enemy, James Gordon Bennett of the Herald, said that the Tribune editor should be tried for murder because he had sent all those brave young boys to their death. Greeley was so overwhelmed by it all that he was prostrated for six weeks with an attack of brain fever. Later he rose to heights of editorial Influence perhaps never eqmtled by any other man. But by many Ameri- cans he is still remembered as the editor whose slogan precipitated a great disaster to our arms and to our pride. @, W?st?~"9 N ews2aper Union. Our Adlet Column helps. Try it.
