jgj;j DAVID ROOSEVELT AND SAUL
'"SET"" T T lias come to be the fashion, set
JsSBP I y bromldists and bralnstormers,
YwKF to find certaIn Biblical illustrations
AM"iii which are applicable in the present
LLu political campaign. And some of the
prT gentleman who have carried on flir-
fjj$BKgv tations with the Scriptures have not
5mIPw taken the trouble to make more than
' wlfiiss a cursory examination of the subjects
PPPf' with which they were flirting and with
which, after the manner of flirts, they
I J$&k& I were not at all familiar.
3P Early in the campaign Colonel
4KF Roosevelt pointed to Armageddon as
nTJ i the particular spot upon which the
Ib&Bm Progressives were standing and all
rr. .....,., , who did not stand there then later
SaBMWK marched toward that strategic posl-
9hDB: tion. Many who really didnU know
''MMff tl10 namo of tlle Place at which they
r"-??! had stop-over privilege were satisfied
with the colonel's designation of" the
Ia$? spot and they have stood there ever
uWJW'ft -A- bright genius who is paid a sal-
A 7; tm ary to hate and help others to hate
ai'im'mu tlQ colonel scanned the columns of
"'e&L&sJ&'I Is oxcnanSea for now campaign ideas
'!fifiEK and in one of them his eagle eye
"JPJWilKr caught another Biblical reference
'3IHK3S2I6
;lBn; which seemed to him to be more ap-
. LH2i propriato than Armageddon. So ho
cribbed it, recking not of the realm
ffla of the unknown Into which ho so
K gaily launched.
jPT The palpitating populace was forth
i L,lalff. with told that Roosevelt stood at the
"cave of Adullam" instead of at
pEggrg Armageddon. Roosevelt was likened
;PBBHli unto David and some do say that the
'HfiflK' comparison is complimentary to both
sUPflHSiii of them. Down in the first book of
Km,?.Uzu$ Samuel the lynx-eyed sleuth discov-
nSKF"! ored le folowms:
vLlP' David therefore departed thence
&4hW and escaped to the cave of Adullam
Bl'( AND EVERYONE THAT WAS IN
uSdiMm DISTRESS, AND EVERYONE THAT
in Tmrn iran WAg IN DBBT AND EVERYONE
THAT WAS DISCONTENTED GATH
ERED THEMSELVES UNTO HIM;
AND HE BECAME A CAPTAIN
OVER THEM; AND THERE WERE
WITH THEM ABOUT FOUR HUN
DRED MEN.
Any one who is progressive enough
to read the Bible and to profit thereby
will not take offense at this apt quo
tation. Here was David In the cave
surrounded by all the disgruntled and
the malcontents and the Republicans
who couldn't get nominations within
their own party, and the (honestly
elected delegates who had been un
fairly unseated. All of the insur
gents and some Democrats gathered
there with David while the standpat
ters were out on the range, led by
Saul, gunning for them.
But David didn't remain in the
cave. Nor did his followers remain
four hundred. Adullam was merely
an incident in David's career. He
didn't hestltate there long . When he
- fared forth into Israel with Saul's
army of standpatters at his heels he
gained a convert to woman suffrage
when the fair Abigail joined his band
and made some campaign contribution
from her husband's rich store.
Saul's dislike for David was the di
rect result of the work of the first
poison squad on record.
And Jehovah delivered Saul into
the hands-of David at another cave,
shaped something like the Coliseum
at Chicago, but David was consumed
with compassion for his king and de
cided to let him go thence, first shear
ing a part of his hobble skirt and put
ting him completely out of the race.
That Was in June and David hoped
to make the job complete about the
first Tuesday following the first Mon
day in November of the same year.
Liken Roosevelt to David. Sure.
When David called King Saul's atten
tion to the work of the poison squad
and the abbreviated bloomers of his
royal majesty, Saul acknowledged his
mistake, said David was the more
righteous and blew up In the very
middle of the campaign.
Maybe Roosevelt stands at Adullam
rather than Armageddon. But David
became king and reigned many years
and his son after him.
RECREATION FOR CONVICTS.
CNOLLIER'S WEEKLY seems to bo
y laboring under the delusion that
baseball played by convicts in
penitentiaries is an innovation and
therefore publishes a pictured account
of the sport at Columbus, O., going
on within the prison walls.
Why, guards on the outer wall of
the Utah prison have been dodging
home runs over the fence for two or
three seasons and Warden Pratt has
been umpiring games inside the pri
son yard so long that he could easily
qualify as an arbiter in a major H
league, so thorough is his understand- HSfe3fetT H
ing of the game. K '1
The art of handling convicts com- !&illRrl 1
prlsea two or three specific aims: !flraJr I
To attract the inmate's attention MMfflmaw iH
away from the sordid grind of prison )
life; to give the worthy recreation jjfflgg h
along pleasant lines; to create a bet- ifiSSPiv H
ter spirit and to fit the convict for "Mm!1J; H
an honest, legitimate career when ho jfreljyto" Bl
leaves the prison. There has been Bl
a six-tea'm league at the prison this $8$&r jH
year and some of the men are capa- '1f6 iH
ble of traveling in fast company on I Hw '
the diamond. w(f-ffi H
But there is a more serious and MtalfcAj jBB.
even more laudable work ahead at "f-SES?1 I
the state prison, we are informed. HhHP HI
The prison authorities have author- iiHH3 H
ized the formation of a prison band flR H
and Mr. L. P. Christensen has been l3;
given charge of the work of training ritI?2HF"r""TT I
musicians. There is an abundance of WffiS&iw
material and already the nucleus for !1b!9HmI I
a good band has been found among ffmf&raPi 1
the unfortunates who are paying their dMtriy H
debt to society. H
The influence of music upon the con- 32jSP' i
victs will bo helpful, inspiring; and j 3f8flfi H
those who are trained well and who 'yBH:'' H
show particular aptitude for the vari- -jwHrT' H
ous instruments will experience no L222a
difficulty in finding good positions l luMf x !
.when they return to the outer world. ffi1 H
THE CASE OF LA FOLLETTE. W'TWfe
CLAY idols crack. Among the fafeu H
Progressives of note, who, since " H
mjy nil" I n IU Jgl H
the organization of the party on illiiittfe H
a national scale, have not connected DK Bl
themselves with It, no case is more ?9HBP B
regrettable, and from some points of JBlSS l
view, more pathetic than that of Sen- " H
ator Robert M. La Follettb of Wis I Sfe I H
His present course, bitter and vin- 'IHft
dictlve toward the new party, affords JrJ7 HI
unfortunate proof that his career, ex- Y&wdAlim H
cellent enough up to a certain time, .,. ,,.1.. H
had In its impulse more of the per- SJHb; H
sonal equation than a regard ror the Kllfflf' H
general welfare. "9Bf- i
A feeling of sympathy and regret i!?lj jH
was manifested through the country fm
on the occasion of the senator's loss iM$for
of self-control In his Philadelphia c l
speech, which feeling has very gen- T S HH
erally changed to one of surprise and Mtls7 Hfl
discountenance. His present attitude ' il H
Is that of a disappointed men; ono F222si
who, failing miserably in his ambition, iBBffiP H
apparently forgets that general prln- lfMK IB
ciples are at stake in his campaign, JhHhk K
that they are of tremendous and over- bJ2 2S2J
topping Importance as compared with j r H
tho political welfare of the individual, ! jpy M
and that statesmen and politicians, '7B H
like other men in other fields, must f1fl$ H
subordinate their own desires to clr- Jyjpga M
cumstances and tho needs of the oc-
