THE LAMPASAS LEADER
Siamese Monarch Made
Country Modern State
Mongkut (grandfather of the pres-
ent king of Siam) made over the
country into a modern state. It is
interesting to see what Mongkut’s
first step was. It was to provide for
the education along western lines for
his son and successor (Chulalong-
korn, who reigned forty years). Mrs.
Leonowens, a school mistress in
Singapore, was called to Bangkok
“to do,” as the king 'expressed it in
quaint but unmistakable English,
“English education and not Chris
tian religion upon my royal chil-
Later, other tutors continued the
work which Mrs. Leonowens had be-
gun. Chulalongkorn was only fif-
teen years old when he ascended the
throne, but as soon as he attained
his majority he decreed that all his
brothers, whether willing or not,
have an education. They might
choose an English one or a Siamese
one, but educated they must be.
Later, members of the royal fam-
ily and others of the king’s subjects
were sent to Europe, sometimes to
spend many years. Among the broth-
ers the king later found the adminis-
trators who were to make over the
medieval structure of Siamese ad-
ministration, and create under his
direction a really modern state.—El-
don R. James in Foreign Affairs.

At Passau, the ancient city on the
Danube; the “Castra Batava” of the
Romans, in the cathedrals of St.
Stephen, one of the most noted
sacred ediiices in Europe, is the
biggest organ in the world, the cit-
ation of the Steinmeyers of Oet-
tingen, Bavaria, who have been
building organs for generations. It
has 208 registers, five manuals and
Five separate organs combine to
make it. The main and largest or-
gan is enclosed in a baroque house
more than fifty feet high. The so-
called Epistle and Evangel organs,
also in baroque houses, stand in the
side naves of the cathedral, the
choir organ is in a niche ' of the
presbytery, and its tones come
through cancelli. Most wonderful of
all is the echo organ, built in under
the ceiling. All five organs are
played from one main player’s
A walk through the main organ
leads through a veritable forest of
pipes. Narrow paths permit the or-
ganist and tuners to keep the or-
gan in order, llere are the “prin-
cipa1” with its full tone, the “viola
da gamba,” and, farther back, the
“Gemshorn” or alpine horn, which
sounds like a real horn. Pipes of
wood, tin and copper alternate. The
biggest of all are those of the pedal
—the deep tones of the mighty bass
contraprincipal 32 and the contra
bombe 32. The largest of these, per-
haps the biggest organ pipe ever
constructed, is some thirty-seven
feet long and twenty inches in di-
ameter. Of zinc, reaching up four
stories, it weighs 673 pounds. But
across from it one finds the small
est pipes, hardly thicker than a
wheat straw and only a third of an
inch long. Their tone is a whole
en octaves higher than that of the
cast bass pipes.
There are two motors for the main
.organ and one for each of the other
four. The main organ requires up
to 100 cubic meters of compressed
air a minute. More than 425 miles
of wire were required for the vari-
During the summer season the or-
gan is played at noon every day. and
the great cathedral is filled by vis-
itors. To hear it is an experience
which no one will ever forget.—Bos-

WHY PAY MORE?
Every day thousands of people
buy 12 tablets of St.Joseph’s Gen-
uine Pure Aspirin for 10c because
they realize that it is neither eco-
nomical nor necessary to pay more.
Despite misleading claims to the
contrary, the public knows that
there is no monopoly on genuine
pure aspirin. St. Joseph’s Aspirin is
as genuine and as pure as money
can buy and in addition it always

“Armament makers apparently have
no fatherland and nothing to lose but
their business,” says a recent issue
of Social Science Abstracts, a digest
of the writings of social interest ap-
pearing in over four thousand mag-
azines, in a review of an article in
The World Tomorrow. “Both Prus-
sian and Austrian armies were
equipped with Krupp artillery in
1866; Willingen, a large German arms
company, was partly owned by
French capital and had two French-
men on its board of directors. Vick-
ers, a feritish company, supplied the
Boers with the machine guns to be
used against England, and Vickers-

Gold diggers are not all girls. A
Croatian peasant was caught with a
gold ring, a silver watch and a gold
watch-chain, belonging to a friend
who had been dead five years. He
explained he had sold certain articles

the grave, but when caught executing
the latter intention, it was found he
really bad planned to rob the body of
the gold-filled teeth, which he was
unable to procure on his first visit.

League of Nations, and the news of
the present Manchurian situation is
likely to reach them long after it has

of ignorance was related at 95.
