Errors galore, scratch hits and poor base- running on both sides resulted in the large score. Early in the game Elma had a 4 run lead which was overcome by 'Shelton in the fifth inning when the home.team amassed five runs. How- ever Elma came back with six runs the same inning and stayed ahead the rest of the game. Just four balls were pitched over by Smith, the Elma pitcher, one inning, that being one of the shortest innings ever played at the local grounds. A good crowd was at the game and shouted their loudest but to no effect. Smith and Cadillac formed the Elma bat- tery while Kennedy and Daniels worked for the home team. SMILES Simple Enough. A factory hand who had lost a finger through careless handling of the machinery was approached by his foreman, who asked him how he did it. "Well boss I'll show you," sai(I the unlucky one.

PAINT HE life, the value, the beauty of your home, depend on the care you give it. Weather-beaten and warped siding, cracks and open joints are forerunners of decay. Many property owners neglect to look for such signs, judging their houses and buildings by general appearances only. It is good business to make regular inspection of your property, and to use paint of good quality, which is the xurest preventive of decay.. Through the varying conditions of weather in all their extremes, FULLER Paint has proved both its preserv- ing and beautifying qualities--a Pacific Coast Product for Pacific Coast requirements.

THE PROPER COURSE Information of Priceless Value to Every Shelton Citizen.

THE BRITISH MUSEUM HISTORIC EXHIBITS FULL OV "HEMIN'rOF, q Ol,' WORLD TRAGEDY--eL1) ANI) NEW I,ondon, E,w:l:md, April 17, 1920. I suppose that after pronouncing the Tower of London an awful bore it will be hard for me to declare the British Museum fascinating and at the same tlmc retain my reputation for consistency. But I am going to take the risk. I admit that most museums are anything but entertain-I ing. The British Museum is an ex- ception.. Things do not need to be stale and out of date before they are given a place in the collection. We were very much interested in a case of medals struck during the recent war. The most famous, perhaps, was the Ger- man medal in honor of the sinking of the Lusitania. showing Death selling tickets through the Cunard line's win- dow on one side, and the sinking of the ship on the other. The issuing of this medal caused great indignation in England. One large London de- partment store sold facsimilies of the medal as reminders of German cruel- ty. Much on the same order was a medal in honor of the supposed suc-I ess of the German submarine cam- paign, with yon Tirpitz's head on one side and an edifying representation of the rats leaving the allied ships on the other. The most touchln hum'm docu- ment in th( whole bdhllng' is the original of Capt. Scott's last diary. Scott, at the head ef a British expe- dition, reached the South Pole short- ly after the Norwegian exporer, Amundson. On the return trips pro- visions gave out, and Scott, with his little party, perished. Their bodies and records were later recovered. The entry before the last contains the words: "It is a great pity, but I can write no more." The last reads "For God's sake, look after our peo- ple." The writing is strong, though Scott's hand was evidently shaking. His country has good reason to be proud of such men. As I never happen to have any correspondence with a queen, I was interested in some letters of Queen Elizabeth's. At first I felt some del- icacy about reading a lady's corres- pondence. But it was all right. She wrote such a bad hand that I couldn't even tell what it was abotit. Almost all the great English author's autographs were nearby, including a letter of Charles. Dickens, written the day before his death, making an ap- :pointment which he did not live to keep. George Washington is apparently considered something of a celebrity over here, which, after all, is not surprising. He was represented by a letter declaring that America desired to live in peace and amity with all "the world, trading with all who desire her goods, but that it is contrary to her policy to become involved in European squabbles. This, of 'course, is a restatement of the policy laid down in his Farewell Address. What really took our fancy was a map of the world made about 1500, in which Africa and South America were separated by a narrow strait, and South America was filled with gay parrots the size of Brazil. It must have been interesting sailing away to the west with the prospect of seemg such creatures. Of a slightly later period are some instructions for a voyage of discovery to America, l which may prove valuable to some of m friends on their summer camping trip: "Lett Bavin carry with him good store of parchment, paper ryall, quills, and inck, black powder to make yncke, and af oll sorts of col- ours to drawe all thinges to life, gum, pensyll, a stone to grinde colours. * * * * Also lett him carry with him your sea instruments, a flare watche clock, wich dothe shewe and devide the hewers by the minutes, and such" a one as will runne 24 hewers or 40 hewers without any winding up." I am merely playing around the edges of the great store of treas- ures in the Museum. For example, it contains the finest collection of Greek and Roman sculpture in the world, including the wonderful mar- ble bas-relief frieze of the Parthenon at Athens. A large part of this 'col- lection was saved from destruction and sent to England by Lord Elgin, British ambassador to Turkey about 1800. The finest statuary in the world was being broken up for build- ing material by the people of Athens. Another interesting feature is that a copy of every book published in the British Island is brought to the Mu- seum lbirary, which corresponds in this way to the Library of Congress at .Washington. It is one of the great privileges of children educated in London that they have access, in- dividually and as 'classes, to all the splendid materials in the collection. I have seen children illustrating their ancient history from the Greek, Re- ]nan, and Assyrian sculptures, and their geography from Oriental cos- tumes and household furnishings. How fortunate would Western 'chil- dren be if they had such institutions within a" few blocks. J. H. BINNS. I'Nll $ Ulycerine Mixture . . .
