In an old book containing fiicts about
the weather from 1806 to 18DG It is
found that on tho Fourth of July, 1811,
tho tempcraturo attained 107. For tho
first six days of July of that year tho
record was: July 1, 1Q1; July 2, 103;
July 3, 101; July 4, 107; July B, 99;
July G. 97. In 1819, according to the
samo weather book, tliero was frost
every month In tho jear. Vegetation
was killed and tho farmers had to
send lo other parts of the country for
teed for tho next year. All of this Is
Interesting if not cooling.
WHAT DEMOCRATS ARE DOING.
Under tio caption "notching tho
Job" tho Frocport (111.) Journal has
tho following to say In regard to tho
way tho Democratic Congress Is at
tempting to play with Its now toy:
If Congress, now Democratic, was
disposed to act In good faith, It would
not attempt revision of tho tariff until
tho regular session noxt December,
after tho tariff board had reported
legarding' tho relative cost hero and
ilu nail, Tho Democratic Houso can
not revise the tail ff in any particular
without tho concurrence of tho Son
ata mid President, both Republican.
Hut thu Democratic Congress Is intent
It docs not ex
pect tho tariff tn bu revised, but It
does expect by tho so-called farmers'
frco list, and cutting In two tho tariff
on wool, to gain an advantage In tho
noxt political campaign by showing
that the Democratic Houso offered tn
reduce tho tariff, and tho Itopubllcan

Land of Puiipueo
WHEN a man buys something useful
which at the same time is steadily in
creasing in value he is twice fortunate. It
is only a little over ten years ago since the
pioneer settler on the land of Puupueo
made his home there. Then there were
none of the many conveniences required by
the exacting suburbanite. Now' all the ad
vantages that can possibly be asked for are
procurable: Mountain spring water, tele
phone, electric light and Rapid Transit
service, and gas for cooking.

liistory Is repenting Itself when a
general thrcaCot tariff reduction on
ono hand nnd,a fight against it on
tho ground that It will bring on a
period, ot hard times, is followed up
with a scries of hot waves that aro
burning up the crops and creating a
condition In tho agricultural districts
that has not .been equalled for many,
years., ' I i
A combination of politics and ad-;
verso' wouthcWuas always brought
ubqut hard times, and the political
party In power has always had to
stand tho bruni of tho poor crops for
which It has no more responsibility'
than (ho phases qf tho moon.
Judged from tho aovornmont rc
liorts, tliq mainland outlook is not at!
all pleasing. With tho purchasing
power ofrtho. great agricultural scc-
lions reduced, buslnoss throughout tho
country is certain to bo seriously cur
tailed. Just whnt tho influence will
bo on legislation Is hard to say. It
may Incrcnso tho clamor for a more
radical chango or tho radicals may
be held to bo tho causo for tho
troublesome conditions, nnd tho pop-"
tilaco demand u return to tho laws,
nnd tariffs of tho good old dnys.
Hawaii has a dlroct Interest In tho.
situation. First, tlamago to tho fruit
crop, likely to result from tho. ex
cesslvo heat, will rcduco tho con
sumption wof sugar nnd may prevent,
tho prlco of raw sugars from running-
- -v .
to exceptionally high figures. Second,
anything (hat operate to head off
tariff tinkering, benefits this Territory.
ENGLISH IN CHICAGO SCHOOLS.
Complaint having keen mado locally
Hint tho pupils of Hawaii aro not
sufficiently schooled in reading and
writing, It Is n matter of more than
passing Interest that n committee of
Chicago school teachers Is undertak
ing to find out Just how much Ignor
ance of tho English lnnguago tho bus
iness men of that city will stand for,
among tho .stenographers, bookkeep
ers nnd salesmen.
Tho' two years' commercial high
school courses aro to bo revised, nnd
tho question Is how llttlo knowlcdgo
of spelling and tho usd nnd meaning
of words Is permissible In tho gradu
ates of theso courses. It is desired to
tnnko them as practical us possible,
nnd protest has beep rnlscd against
"wasting tlmo" on general courses In
Kngltsh without an equal knowlcdgo
of pot hooks and key boards might
havo been ncqulred In less than two
years. So the question Is whether tho
quality of Kngllsh used by a book
keeper makes any difference at nil;
whether Btcnpgrnphors need to know,
mora English than carpenters; wheth
er salesmen need to bo able to make
n corrected statement of n proposi
tion or whethor It Is onough if thoy
can keep up with a disjointed con
versation; whether stenographers
need to know tho meanings of tho
words they use, and tho llko.
Whether It Js worth while, for any
particular boy or girl to lenrn to
nography depends for tho most part
on how much else that boy or girl
knows. Anybody can learn tho pot
hooks, nnd practlco wll enable any
deft-flngcred person to mako them
rapidly. Thcro aro factories, every
where for tho quick manufacturer of
that sort of stenographers, nnd tho
waiting lists of all business houses
nro full of them. They nro the com
monest nnd cheapest commodity on
tho business market. Hut n. really
competent stenographer Is orjo of tho
hardest things for n business man to
find, nnd ono of tho most valiicd busi
ness assets when found.
A vocabulary of llvo hundred words
of English and ono' hundred of slnng,
supplemented by assorted squeals and
giggles, may bo adequate to thcTpcr
sonnl conversational needs of a girl
entering business collogo or com-'
mcrclal high school, but t Is not
ndequato to tho uso of a professional
or business man.
A flvc-hundrod-wnrd girl can not
bo mado a competent nmnnucnsls
for a ten-thoiisand-wnril man merely
by teaching hor n swlftor alphabet.
As for spelling, that is getting to bit
a trado by Itself, and thoso who as-'
plro to practlco It should learn It.
