WHAT HAVE AMERICANS DONE
TO DESERVE THIS?
This is an Associated Press dis
patch of yesterday:
"Washington, D. C, May 5. Sir
Cecil Spring-Rice, ambassador from
Great Britain, although iere only a
few days as successor to James
Bryce, already has shown the same
democratic characteristics that en
deared his predecessor to the capital.
Il developed today that while the am
bassador was on his way to the
Chevy Chase Club in the embassy
automobile yesterday the chauffeur
became confused as to the direction.
"Stop and we will inquire the way,"
ordered the envoy, observing a .young
man approaching on foot "Can yon
direct us to the Chevy Chase Club?"
he inquired of the pedestrian, who
stepped into the roadway as the big
car came to a stop. The man was
almost immediately struck by a car
"Are you hurt?" asked Sir Cecil,
jumping from the motor.
"The young man, who proved to be
Odie Howe, a street car conductor
off duty, protested that he was not,
hut found that his" legs were injured
so he could, not walk. Despite his
protests he was bundled into the em
bassy car and whirled to his home,
Sir Cecil himself lifting him."
We doubt if Sir Cecil, even under
the excitement of "observing a young
man approaching on foot," ever said
"Stop and we will inquire the way;"
v But that isn't quite the point of
re-telhng this Associated Press story.
What alls America, or the Amer
,ican papers the Associated Press
Serves, that such a story should be
sent over the wires and given space
in any American newspaper
It reads like a story in a court
circular written by a man, who, want
ed to honey up to Sir Cecil for a job
'shining his, shoes. ""
hi the language of his own coun
try, Sir Cecil would have been a
beastly cad if he had not taken home
a man who was injured in trying to
do him a service, and why in thunder
any American news service' or news- .
paper should see In Sir pecil's doing
the only decent thing a "democratic
characteristic" gets our tin-can-fed

A HORSE WORTH HAVING. 1 1 f'
There are horses which race
At a terrible pace, - , ? '
And others that people have had-r- C
Which are splendid, of course;
But show me a horse
As safe and as frisky as dad.
When you wish for a ride
Well, you jump to his side,
And whisper a word in his ear;
They you're up erejon know, '
And away you can go l
Like a streak forthere's nothing to jM
fear. " sT" J
You can whip him and shout i p- A?
"While he canters about, f '
But he's never knSwn tp refuse'; 'v M
And it's little you reckr ' , 1
For the rein is his neck, - j 'AJ"
And his hands are the stirrups you
So to bed you can ride; f
Then he sits by your side, ,
And you cling to stirrup, andlq! 'j
The story heOI tell r'
Weaves a wonderful SDell. ... Vi
And well, that's the last that you i
