A Line o Cheer Each Day c the Year.
By JOHN KENDRICK BANGS.
First printing of ah original poem, written ditrj
for Tho Wanhlngtca Herald
Good morning, everybody! I don't
These crisp autumnal mornings you're
enough for me. ,
With breezes cool and'bracing, and skies so rarely
Or low or high
There's no one I
Don't say "GOOD MORXIXG" to.
It is to be hoped that the correct pronunciation
of "blocdsinnigc" will be kept secret. There arc
rnough fighting words in general use already.
It is announced that the G. A. R. veterans will
be welcomed at the Pension Bureau throughout
the encampment. And they should be throughout
the remainder of their days.
The Californian farmer who wrote to the news
papers that he had a bean a yard long has alrcady
been approached by several circuses, and now
wishes us to explain that he meant a runner bean.
The front row of one of the G. A. R. reviewing
stands should be reserved for those who believe
in peace at any price. It could not fail to do them
good to have a close view of the men who con
stitute a living refutation of their policy.
Famine is said to be decimating the ostriches
in Africa. The reason is reported to be that the
last cargo of nail scissors upon which these birds
arc said to feed exclusively was sunk by a sub
marine while on its way to Cape Town.
Baltimore court has decided that a boarding
bouse keeper may not retain a baby as security
lor a board bill which its parents owe her. There
arc plenty of fathers and mothers not only willing
lo exchange their offspring for board and lodging
but eager to give it away; but a landlady laying
claim in court to her boarder's infant is something
of a noveltv.
Philadelphia ordinance having put the jitney
bus out of busincs, the "Peoples' Motor Club" has
been organized and every time a member' pays 25
cents in dues he receive coupons entitling him to
-ix rides 111 the club cars, formerly the jitney
busses. If the plan stands the legal test a whole
lot of persons who arc too proud to ride in a jitney
will no doubt join the club.
Reports from the border indicate that war with
Mexico is much more imminent than war with
(icrmany. American soil has been invaded and
American troop, have repulsed the invaders, with
a loss of one killed and two wounded. However,
nothing more may come of it than when the
1 nitcd States invaded Mexico a year and a half
ago, with much more serious losses on both sides.
Two members of the German-American Alli
ance of St. Louis resigned after listening to a
speech in which another member referred to Presi
dent ilson as "a jackass, an ape, and a crook."
There must be sonic law. Federal or State, under
which the man who made use of these expressions
may be sent to prison. It should be invoked with
out delay. Meanwhile the alliance should expel
linn or disband.
Giacomo Giavclle, the famous Xcw York truffle
hunter, is dead at the age of 64. Giavelli was the
man who introduced American sportsmen to the
art of shooting truffles over dogs, and also invented
the trullling iron a sort of cross between a niblick
and a stymie with which the wounded truffles are
dispatched. He always maintained that the Amer
ican truffle (Galantinus ferox, known to scientists
as Gambel's truffle) was superior both in strength
and cunning to the European species which he
had snared as a youth in the forests of Lombardy.
There is nothing surprising about the series
'tof accidents in connection with the construction
of a new subway in New York; the wonder is
that there have not been more of them. Tunnel
ing and burrowing under Manhattan Island, facili
tated by dynamite blasting, while the heavy traffic
proceeds overhead, strikes the layman as danger
ous business. It is not unlikely that those directing
the work have become so accustomed to taking
chances that they have ignored some precautions
that will be taken now that loss of life has taught
The fact that three fires have occurred in as
I many days on a United States military reserva
tion in the Capital suggests a lack of proper vig
ilance and precaution. The only logical deduction
is that an incendiary is at work; and while it is
J surprising that he was able to succeed in the first
instance, it is doubly surprising that he found it
possible to continue his exploits after those in
'charge of the Washington Barracks had been
given such emphatic and costly warning. Surely
the deeds of incendiaries all over the country, and
the damage done to United States warships, should
have had the effect of putting our military author
ities on guard, and it would be a sad state of affairs
indeed should wc be compelled to admit that we
are unable to protect our own ships and army
buildings from criminals and cranks.

Animals and Man.
By JOHN D. BARRY. '

know that it has reached the last page ot a
glorious history. So let us pay to these veterans
that were the bulwark of the nation's days of
greatest peril some small part of the debt that we
owe them for"thcir bravery, for the strength they
gave, .for the sacrifice, they made, for the suffer

and children of today may do reverence and pay
grateful homage to these old' heroes,- the nation
may be generous in its care of them, but, asking
nothing for the great service they gave their coun

And while we offer to these soldiers who fought
with the legions of Grant and Sherman and the
other mighty warriors who rest in honored tombs
the best of our hospitality and the tenderest of our
care, let us remember that they arc not the guests
of Washington. They have come to their Capital,
the Capital of their, own America, for which they
have achieved nobly, magnificently, in war and in
peace. It is their right today to walk as proudly
in Washington as they marched in the grand
review fifty years ago. It is our privilege, in doing
all wc can to make memorable what may be their
last visit to Washington as the Grand Army, to
show them that this later generation, enjoying the
blessing of peace, is worthy of their sacrifices and
deeds of valor.
Welcome, Grand Army, welcome to your own

It is not at all likely that proceedings will be
undertaken against James F. J. Archibald by the
United States authorities. When a man has made
a fool of himself or worse in the eyes of the
world there is nothing to be gained by giving him
an opportunity to pose as a martyr.
Any coldness which Mr. Archibald may here
after experience in his journey through life will 'not
be due to his brief but tragic career as a confi
dential agent of the Austro-Hungarian Ambassa
dor. The air of opera bouffe that has distinguished
his valuable services in the cause has distracted
public attention from the more sinister question
of what would have been the result to the United
States if this and subsequent missions of the same
delicate nature had succeeded in their purpose.
There may be a few uncompromising souls who
believe that Mr. Archibald has forfeited his right
to American citizenship, but that will not be the
general view. He belongs in the camp of the
Mr. Archibald is or rather was a war cor
respondent. He followed a calling the very nature
of which demanded a high sense of honor, an
essential straightforwardness of thought and ac
tion in its followers. Many privileges are extend
ed to the war correspondent of a neutral country
on the theory that his business is one of procuring
legitimate news for his public. And such has been
the high and honorable bearing of those who fol
lowed this profession in the past that the sur
veillance of war correspondents by the military
authorities has been purely perfunctory. As with
the armies to which the correspondent is accredit
ed, so with the public at home. They believe what
he tells them, or at least accept it on the assump
tion that he is their man, honestly endeavoring to
dipict things as he sees them. His position in re
gard to this audience no less than in regard to
those to whom he is accredited is one of trust.
Some time ago I experienced the sensation
when I was looking at a group of elephants. There
they stood, monsters. that they were, slowly and
gracefully lifting their long trunks, and peering at
the world with their shrewd little eyes, strangely
out of proportion to the rest of their bodies. When
they walked in a procession they swayed rhyth
mically. During an interval of rest I stood in front
of one. A little boy offered him some peanuts.
With that long trunk he took them one by one
and deposited them in his huge mouth. In the
spirit of mischief, the .boy held out a peanut and,
just as the end of the trunk was preparing to
close on it, he threw it away. The elephant, dis
appointed and angry, shot from his trunk a shower
of moisture and dirt that completely enveloped the
Again I had that pleasurable surprise. The
elephant was behaving according to the nature of
elephants that I had read about in "my school
In watching a lion in his cage I am made to
realize all over again that this animal is a lion.
See how perfectly he plays his paft. As he lies
there with his forepaws stretched out on the
ground, head raised, the thick mane standing like
a crown, the eyes resolutely gazing throug 1 the
bars, he is every inch the king. At an indignity
he rises to his feet and paces up and down. Note
that long, thin body, with its graceful, quiet mo-J
tion, the great head, perfect in its proportions,
finely adapted to the neck. Watching him is like
following a magnificent actor of tragedy. 'Not
for an instant does he forget to be his character.
Then there are the monkeys in their high cages,
diabolical and ludicrous in their resemblance to
hunlan beings. But human beings they are not
for one instant. They are monkeys, and monkeys
only. They act like monkeys all the time. Every
motion is the motion of a monkey. Every sound
is monkey chatter. Two of them up in the corner
are getting into a squabble. Now they are fight
ing. One bites the other. Since I last saw mon
keys, a long time ago, all the monkeys of the
world have gone on behaving like monkeys.
Consider, too, the snakes. Some of them arc
huge fellows, lying on the floor of their cages. A
few of the people, watching them make faces of
disgust. But why should they? Just because
snakes are snakes? They arc fulfilling their des
tiny, exactly like the other animals. They arc as
good actors as the monkeys or the lions or the
elephants. They never get out of the part. See
how beautiful they are. The big one lying over in
the corner, study him minutely. In every attribute
he is a snake. And that other little one, nearby;
see his eyes blazing and his tongue sticking out.
He is following his nature, too.
A woman beside me shivers ami savs "Ob "
That trust Mr. Archibald at the very outset J She would hate to be close to that snake Per
ot the war proceeded to violate. He went to Ger
many disguised as an American war correspondent.
He sent back reports that purported to be an
American war correspondent's honest impressions.
Many persons, not supposing that a man in Archi
bald's position would play a double game, believed
all he sent. The articles were evidently not writ
ten by Mr. Archibald, though they bore his name.
They were written by a German, in the kind of
English that a German would write. They dis
played the habit of thought, the mental attitude
that only a German enjoys, that the most pro
nounced Germanophile American cannot acquire.
They purported to be eyewitness reports of events
covering an extent of territory that Mr. Archibald
could not possibly have covered in the brief space
of time he had been at the German front. Inci
dentally they contained statements that Mr. Archi
bald must have well known were untrue.
As with the newspaper articles so with the lec
tures. They purported to be the experiences of an
American war correspondent with the German
armies. They were official Austro-Gcrman lec
tures prepared for the sole purpose of inclining
public opinion in the United States to the side of
the central empires.
It is immaterial whether Mr. Archibald was
paid a lump sum by the Teutonic governments for
his distinguished services or whether his remuner
ation was confined to the returns from articles and
lectures. The material fact is that Mr. Archibald
posed as an American war correspondent when he
was really an Austro-German publicity agent. He
has provided his own punishment in the damage
he has done to his future career in this country.
Allies Take the Offensive.
British and French forces apparently have be
gun what may be regarded as their first concerted
offensive campaign of the war against the Ger
mans. They have proceeded with so much delib
eration and after such long preparation' that nat
urally much will be hoped for by their sympa
thizers irom the important movement that
seems to be fairly under way. The war has been
going Germany's way, reckoned by the number
of victories and the failure of the allies to show
actual progress in any direction, ever since the
drive started in Poland, and those observers who
failed to bear in mind Earl Kitchener's complacent
haps she thinks he would bite her anil cause her
death. On the other hand, perhaps, through some
sense denied to us, he feels W enmity and re
sponds in kind. Yet he may feel no enmity what
ever. As a matter of fact, doesn't science teach us
that snakes have their place in the world like all
creatures? If they were not tormented by man
they would let man alone.
,. . often, th!nk of a s'ry told me by Charles
Kellogg, the naturalist. On one occasion while
he was motoring through the country he stopped
at a farm house and fell into conversation with the
farmer's wife. She told him that for months the
place had been overrun with gophers. He asked
her if there were any snakes in the neighborhood.
"Oh, no," she replied, "we have driven them all
out. We just made up our minds that wc would
exterminate them." Kellogg, who liked snakes, re
marked: "That's why you were bothered with
gopners. snaKcs would have eaten them

N 1792 Kentucky was made a State of

its frontier liberality, said nothing
about any qualification for the suffrage
except trTo qualllicutlons of ago and resi

tho Union as a State four years later,
though no less a frontier community than
Kentucky, required by her constitution
that voters, should be owners of free
holds. There were also in almost every State
property qualifications for membership
in the lower House of tho State legislat

Hut law and custom already felt In

The party that was gathering about
Mr. Jefferson purposed, among other
things, the levelling of political privi

to the President twenty-five thousand
dollars a year, to the Vice President five
thousand, to Senators and Representa
tives six dollars a day during the sessions
of Congress, and to the Speaker of the
House twelve dollars.
It was known that General Washing
ton would decline to draw his salary,
and that while he remained President
tho salary voted to the chief magistrate
would be merely nominal; but the bill
fixed tho salary for subsequent Incum
bents of the office, and It was very gen

In studying the snakes in their cages I won
der how' they feel about lying on their bellies all
the time. Do they mind? And as they slip lightly
over the earth, do they wish that, instead of walk
ing with their bellies, they were supplied with legs?
I find myself smiling at the absurdity of my ques
tion. Isn't a snake a snake in every part of his
being-? It he could conceive of being anything else
he might not act the part of the snake nearly so
well. His way of living, being natural, must be
easy for him, and right.
After spending a little time among the animals
I catch myself taking the same point of view to
ward human beings. There they arc, women and I
men, behaving exactly as such. Ever since I can
remember they have behaved in the same way. No
matter what part of the world I might be in, no
matter what the conditions might be. I should in
stantly know them, not by their appearance alone,
nor through any speech that I might happen to be
familiar with, but through a multitude of expres
sions that I should recognize as human.
They must fulfil their destiny, too. They can
no more escape being what they are than those
animaK They have to do everything in the way
prescribed by their human nature. Exactly like
animals, they play their part in the drama of life.
To get out of the part is impossible. It would
be no less ridiculous for a man to try to bccojne
snake, or a monkey, or a lion, or an elenhant than
now 1 to worry the animals into trying to be a man.
