BOSTON, Sept. 12. — With ’he throat of a sympathetic general strike held off by the action of the Central Labor Union last night, the situation resulting from from the strike of policemen assumed a calmer aspect today. The reduction during the night of the number of disturbances which marked the tirst two nights of the strike was a reassuring feature.
Soldiers of the state guard continued in charge of the streets, aided by a force of voluntary policemen. Little difficutly was experienced in breaking up the crowds last night except in one or two sections.
The deathlis? on the third day stood at seven. Several of the fatalities were due to guardsmen firing into mobs which were breaking windows and looting stores, while two resulted from the efforts to break up the dice games w’hich were played openly In the streets.

london, Aug. 25, (Correspond
ence of The Associated Press.)-— Britons are deeply interested in what is called the ‘‘American prohibition experiment,” and every published statement concerning the situation and the attitude of the American public toward the new order is eagerly read.
The latest addition to such contributions is by the Archdeacon of Warrington. Canon Howson, wrho has just returned from New and who unqualifiedly endorsed the law. His impressions, concisely (stated, are as follows:
"Prohibition has come to stay in I the states. Those most opposed to ! ii accept the inevitable. Those I who have paved the way for it are facing law’ enforcement. A very large majority, to judge by hearsay and eyesight, agree that it is the best thing for America. The threats of ‘no beer, no work,’ and ‘riot and revolution" are empty vaporings, and the work of the staes and cities is going on unimpaired. Smuggling of liquor will i:o on for a time, but by January the government will have the situation well in hand. Prosperity is the result.

FIFTH AVENUE, NEW YORK, fcS SCENE OF GREAT REVIEW OF THE GENERAL’S FIGHTING FIRST.
By News* Special Service
NEW YORK, Sept. ll.—Over a five mile flower-strewn pathway General Pershing led his famous First division down Fifth avenue York, yesterday to the plaudits of 2,000,-000 proud countrymen. It was the last great review of the world war for New York and it was a fitting climax to a long series of military spectacles.
Tht commander of America’s armies shared honors with battle scared veterans who won undying fame on the fields of France. For all of them it was life’s most memorable days. As he drove down the avenue, the stern lines of the leader’s face relaxed in the now famous Pershing smile, and w’hen he dismounted in Washington Square at the end of the march, he exclaimed :
"It was the most enthusiastic and patriotic outburst I have ever seen.” . %

It is due to the fume of this last ; item, of the American soldiers’ equipment, according to report, that France now "(wants 20,000 New Testaments.” Twenty thousand is not enough for the French army, but may be considered a good beginning.

The biographical data found iii lh** records of centenarians contain some very curious facts or claims.

Several others have claimed that their lives w’ere lengthened by strong drink, and there is one on record who is alleged to have been under the influence of liquor during the greater part of 80 years. John Shell does not attribute his long life to anything in particular, but he is quoted as saying that his 131st birthday was the first on which he did not do a day’s work: No doubt he lengthened his days by healthful physical exercise in the pure air of his native Kentucky mountains.

When he returned to his office Mr. Greenwood found a large vol-1 utile of letters from various members of the advisory committee throughout the state recommending men for county chairmen.

The commander made but one stop on the march and that was at ! St. Patrick’s Cathedral to change ; horses. He dismounted amidst a j crowd of girls representing the Knights of Columbus, each eager to be the first to hand him flowers. Upon the cheek of the victor he implanted a kiss while she blushed happily.
Seated on a private stand fn front of the cathedral were Cardinal Merrier and a throng of church dignitaries. Pershing paused to welcome to America the heroic old man who had so proudly defied the German
invaders. The cathedral chimes
rang out in hymns of victory and "The Star Spangled Banner” as the two world-famous figures clasped hands.
"I love America with all my heart and greet you as one of <the world s greatest soldiers," was the greeting of Belgium’s primate, while the soldier saluted.
