JAKE, THE TRAVELED COATI.
"There was once," began Daddy, "a
little Coat I who wanted to see the
"What Is a Coat I, Uaddy?" asked
Nick. "An animal, person or thing?"
"Yes. what is It. do tell us Daddy,'
"1 don't suppose I could tell you the [
story unless I told you what a Coatl If
-could I? Well, as I can see you don't
wuut to wait long to find out what a
Coatl is, I shall have to tell you right j
"First of all it's an animal. It's more
like a Raccoon than any other animal
we know about—but It han a long, long
tall which it is very proud of. The
' oatl families always live In far-off
countries where we never go.
"But one time Sailors, off a big ship,
went on land—near where their ship
was lying In stream for a few days.
The Hailors had gone for a long, long
trip in this ship to visit all the strange
parts of the world.
"Well, of course, they saw the Coati
families. Just lots and lots of them
they saw all around, and one little 1
Coatl followed one of the Sailors and ;
seemed to be very devoted to him
Kverywhero the Sailor went the Coati ;
followed and whatever the Sailor gave
him to eat—he swallowed It whole, at
"Now the rest of the Coatls did not j
seem to be surprised at the little ;
' oatl's devotion to th^ Sailor and I
suppose It was because they had al
ways known that this little Coatl—
whose name was Jake—was very anx
lous to see the world and go for a lonf
"And all the devotion really meant a
great big hint for an Invitation to gc
where the ship did. And the Sailoi
finally seemed to understand and took
the Coati off with him. For three
years he took trips on the big ship
and stopped off at all sorts of places
Fie was made a great pet of on boarc j

FOREIGN FLOWER IS POPULAR
Mthough Poppy It Quite a Favorite in
This Country, None of Familj
Nativs to Soil.
The dooryard flower gardens are
lotted with popples of all kinds, from
;he little single red fellows to those
:hat look almost like the big white
leaded double chrysanthemums. Al
:hough the poppy is quite a favorite in
his country, none of the family is na
live to the soil. All of our poppies
ame from the old world. In Kngland,
Scotland and Italy the graceful scarlet
poppy blossoms in the wheat fields
md grows wild in waste places Among
the ruins of sncient Rome this bril
isnt (lower blooms luxuriantly. It is
eery hardy, and. though an annual,
tcatters its seeds so well that they
?ome up from year to year in gardens
e hero they have ouc* been plarted.
"In His Dreams He Heard Them
!he ship and all the Sailors were ver>
fond of him.
"Of course Jake was the easiest ani
nal In the world to feed. He liked ab
solutely everything. It didn't mattst
what they gave him, he always seemed
to think it delicious. And no mattei
how much he ate he seemed to al
ways be In the best of health.
"But after a time he got homesick
ind he didn't know what to do. He
really felt very badly as he hadn't «een
any of his family for three years. One
night, after all the Sailors had gone
to bed he wept just a little bit all b>
"And then a Gnome came along and
a little Brownie—by this time the
Coatl had fallen asleep. And in his
Ireams he heard them say that the>
would whisper to the Sailors to gc
back to the Coati land—to look for
jther interesting discoveries.
"And sure enough the Gnome and
lie Brownie did this, and before an
other week was over the ship was way
out in the big ocean again going fast
toward the home of the little Coati.
"Whey they reached Jake's home—
ill his family came rushing out to see
him and the Sailors then knew that
Jake was glad to be back. Many of
his sisters and brothers had grown up
to be so large As for Jake, they all
thought he was wonderful, and they
admired their fine Coati so much. They
thought he was so traveled and wise.
"Of course the Sailors knew that
he Costl wanted to stay home, so they
didn't try to take him off again. And
how grateful the Coatl was to the
Brownie and Gnome who had arranged
his return home! But. lo and behold
mother brother of Jake's went along
jii the next trip as he wanted to see
the world tool"
Federal Inquiry or
Paced by demands from the conductors, engineers, firemen and brakemen that
would impose on the country an additional burden in fransportatit -i costs of $100,000,000
a year, the railroads propose that this wage problem be settled by reference to an
impartial Federal tribunal.
With these employes, whose efficient service is acknowledged, the railroads have no
differences that could not be considered fairly and decided justly by such a public body.
Railroads Urge Public Inquiry and Arbitration
7 lie formal proposal of the railroads to the employes for the settlement of the
controversy is as follows:
"°iUri.COnferenCM have demons.trated that we cannot harmonize our difference, of opinion,
and that eventually the matters in controversy must be passed upon by other and disinter-
ested agencies. Therefore, we propose that your proposals and the proposition of the rail-
ways be disposed of by one or tne other of the following methods:
!• Preferably by submission to the Interstate Commerce Commission, the only tribunal
which, bv reason of its accumulated information bearing on railway conditions and its con-
trol of the revenue of the railways, is in a position to consider and protect the rights and
equities of all the interests affected, and to provide additional revenue necessary to meet the
added cost of operation in case your proposals are found by the Commission to be just and .
reasonable; or, in the event the Interstate Commerce Commission cannot, under existing
^ laws, act in the premises, that we jointly request Congress to take such action as may be
necessary to enable the Ccnmission to consider and promptly dispose of the question,
2. By arbitration in accordance with the provision, of the Federal law" (The Newlands Act).
Leaders Refuse Offer and Take Strike Vote
Leaders of the train service brotherhoods, at the joint conference held in New York,
June 1-15, refused the offer of the railroads to submit the issue to arbitration or Federal
review, and the employes are now voting on the question whether authority shall be
given these leaders to declare a nation-wide strike.
The Interstate Commerce Commission is proposed by the railroads as the public
body to which this issue ought to be referred for these reasons:
No other body with such an intimate
knowledge of railroad conditions ha, such
an unquestioned j isition in the public con-
The rates the railroads may charge the
ublic for transportation are now largely
xed by this Government board.
Out of every dollar received by the rail-
roads from the public nearly one-half is paid
directly to the employes as wages; and the
monev to pay increased wages can come from
no other source than the rates paid by the
The Interstate Commerce Commission,
with its control over rates, is in a position
to make a complete investigation and render
such decision as would protect the interest,
of the railroad employes, the owners of the
railroads, and the public.
A Question For the Public to Decide
The railroads feel that they have no right to grant a wage preferment of $100,000,000
a year to these employes, now highly paid ana constituting only one-fifth of all the
employes, without a clear mandate from a public tribunal that shall determine the
merits of the case after a review of all the facts.
The single issue before the country is whether this controversy is to be settled by an impartial
Government inquiry or by industrial warfare.

AUTO TRIP COMPLETED
SPRINGFIELD, Mo., June 27.—
That on a percentage basis roads in
Southwest Missouri are about 900 as
compared with from 100 to 150 for
Oklahoma and parts of Texas was
a statement yesterday by Von Kuynoi'
of Chicago, who has just completed an
automobile trip of about 2,000 miles
through Texas, Oklahoma and South-
west Missouri. Mr. Kay nor will leave
Springfield today on the return to
Mr. Kaynor ntade the trip his wife
ncocmpanying him on the tour. The
first half of the trip was made
through Coffeyville, Kas., Bartlesville
Qk)a„ AmariUo, Trv, Wiehita Falls.
Dallas, Abilene, Big Spring, Pecos,
and back through Coleman, Dallas,
Wichita Falls, I'retolia, Tex., Lawton,
Okla., Oklahoma City, Neosha, Joplin,
Carthage, Peirce City, Auatra and
During that time. Mr. Kaynor said,
he had but five punctures, tlfree cf
which happened in Dallas in one day.
Mud holes, bad bridge approaches,
and poor roads on the southern part
of the trip, however, were responsible
for the stripping of the gears, tAice
breaking hattery wires, gasoline load
pipe and rhr breakage of other parts
in pulling out of holes that run me-
chanical expense up to $113 in 21
clays. One place was encountered out
of Chickasha, Okla., he said, where i
four-mule team was needed to pull the
car out of the mud. The hole was on
the main road.
Fine roads were oncounted in
the black gumbo soil are almost im-
passable during rainy periods.
On the way from Pretolia, Tex., to
Lawton, Okla., he said, he asked an-
other motorist for directions concern-
ing the roadg and received the re-
sponse, -there are no roads, follow the
Bad road also was encountered, he
said, between Oklahoma City and
Neosho, some of it being almost irr-
passable. Excellent roads were traver-
sed betwen Neosho and Springfield,
except at one point. At this latter
point, he said, between Diamond and
Peirce City road gangs were at work
putting in a rock base road for sev-
The roads in this section of the
state, he said, were far superior to the
average and that he had no machine
trouble at all after getting on the
The first point where he stripped
the gears of his machine was in the
sand between Childress and Quanah,
Tex., and the second was on the main
road between Sapupla and Tulsa, Ok.
The last one occurred when a mechan-
ic was driving. He had been employ-
ed to get the car over the road.
