MAUI NEWS, SATURDAY, DECEMBER 14, 1912.
K. II. p. Hit Ittew
At midday on Friiay, tho busiest
day of the week at Washington
Market. A whole aisle ripped up
to lay new flooring, bare ground
open to day, and such ground 1 a
moist and also a dusty loam, dirt
like that the gravedigger cast up
out of the grave with Yoriek's
smelly skull. Piled up around the
busiest stalls full of fresh meat was
"earth," the slow droppings of
bloody sawdust through rotten
craks in tho floor. That work
should have been done at night,
FRANKLIN'S SAFETY VALVE.
Master Printer Ben Franklin,
even in his extreme old age, sought
solace in handling types. Ho always
kept a private press to while away
sore, saS hours and so save his age
and contentment. This was Frank
lin's safety valve.
Amateur printing has had many
votaries, especially among tho
wealthy Old World scholars and
aristocracy, who found it a fascinat
ing pastime. Louis XIV., the Sun
Monarch, was deeply interested in
tripping types, and pulled off the
press the first sheet of a number of
new editions. Horace Walpole had
a private press at Strawberry Hill.
Queen Charlotte, erected a private
press at Frogmore Lodge. Cardinal
Richelieu published several fine
works from his chateau near Tours.
The Pompadour had a fine print
ing press in her apartments, where
she issued a magnificent Corneillc,
with a plate engraved by her own
hands, Great artists have printed
from their own wood or copper-en-gravures.
Pictures from the hands
of Durer and Holbein were the first
picture books to delight and amaze
an awakening world.
KBMURANDT'S INK PICTURES.
Ilembrandt was tho world's
master magician in making ink
pictures. He could so spread ink
on copper that one impression
would bo dark, gloomy, solemn,
sublime. Then tho next picture
from the same plate he would make
as gay as awakening spring, and in
various correct ranges of color at
BAG AND BAGGAGE.
How many know that the Balkan
troubles which have outrun three
centuries arc responsible among
other things for tho chipper and
conventional phrase "bag and bag
gage?" William E. Gladstone is the
man who used it. In 187G, when
there were insurrections in Bulgaria,
Bosnia, Herzegovina, and Servia and
Montenegro declared war against
Turkey, after the French and Ger
man Consuls had been murdered at
Saloniea, Mr. Gladstone said: "Let
tho Turks now carry away their
abuses in the only possible manner,
namely by carrying away them
selves. One and all, bag &nd bag
gage, shall, I hope, clear out from
the provinces they haye desolated
The Turks have been leaving Eu
rope recently without "bag and bag
gage." Any old way.
PUBLICITY ABOUT CANCER.
Brag is a mighty poor dog, but
truth is not bragging. Several years
ago a well-known surgeon wrote tho
London Lancet that mercy demand
ed a campaign of publicity about
tho first stages of cancer, so that
everybody might know that if can
cer were nipped in the bud with a
mere painless snap of a surgeons's
sharp scissors tho ttrrific disease
then could bo easily and moro sure
ly stopped than later with great
cutting of knives and searing of red
CAMPAIGN STARTED HERE.
This column haa time and again
warned tho public to watch every
tiny new growtli on the body
havo it snipped out at once. Time
and time again tho middle aged and
elderly have been .warned to watch
any leaky or 'bleeding thing, and go
at onco to a first-class surgeon. jThis
column has faithfully through years
done its duty in warning tho public
This column started tho cancer
campaign and has kept it up.
LI1T THE PUBLIC KNOW.
At this Into day the Clinical Con
gress of Surgeons of North America
has resolved to warn the public about
cancer by articles written "in the
daily press, the weekly or monthly
magazines, as may prove most expe
dient." All well and good but the
main trouble is that scary and fear
some first visit to the surgeon. The
public does not yet know that early
nipping of cance is only a trifle no
pain and little or almost no cost.
Nor docs it know who is competent
to do the operating. There arc some
shyster doctors and surgeons, as
there are some shyster lawyers.
THE IIOUSE.OP MORGAN.
J. Picrpont Morgan has the Cresar-
ian objection to lean and hungry
men. All of his partners and neasly
all tho employes in his great bank
at Broad and Wall streets havn their
bones upholstered with flesh. lie
likes to see a man's chin. Nearly
everybody in the bank has a smooth
shaven chin. In that treasure house
there are some good, strong chins.
AIR. MORGAN'S EYESIGHT,
For a man of his age Mr. Morgan
has remarkable eyesight. When he
is at his desk ho rarely has to put on
his glasses to read letters or printed
matter. He holds the sheet about
eighteen inches away. He is a very
rapid reader and he wades through
his correspondence at high speed.
For many years he has had the
same stenographer, James Webster
King. Mr. King is English, white
haired, about 58 years old, quick
of speech and quick of foot. He
occupies a desk in the outer office
among the rest of tho clerks, but he
has a private office up stairs. When
Mr. Morgan wants to dictate any
thing King hops down from his 1
school, marches into tho chief's
room., lays his notebook on tho top
of Mr. Morgan's rosewood desk and
the banker fires away. Mr. King
has another stenographer, a man
about 25 years old, to assist him.
Most of Mr. Morgan '8 letters are re-
dictated by King to this second ste
nographer, but the private and per
sonal matters are handled entirely
