aU idepartments will assist in some
manner, either in the program or in the

J.he refreshments will be attended to by
the household economics department,
while the civics education department
will baye charge of the receiving and
distribution of the free will '"pound"
offerings. It is requested that each
package be plainly marked with- the
character of the donation that It may
be sent to the most appropriate place.
The executive board after Investigating
the needs of all the different local in
stitutions, decided to make the Critten

"Think on your blessings, child."
That's what the old negro "mammy"
used to tell her youiig "girl chile"
when the iatter was disposed to be
pettisli and find fault.
i "Think on your blessings, child."
Pretty good advice, that. It's a very
good tiling to remember when we are
I inclined to believe that our wrongs
and troubles are the worst they pos
sibly can be. If every one who is
disposed to rail at fate were to stop'
and count his blessings there would
be little complaining in this gray old
world of ours.
There is always a timely and an
untimely time to give advice. It
wasn't a bit timely when an elderly
woman rather flippantly advised a
younger one to count her blessings
when she had just received notice of
the death of a very dear friend. The
younger woman's heart was sore
over 'the bereavement and the other
woman's advice sounded hollow and
mocking. It grated on sensitive nerves
and thy effect never wore off.
In the first place the younger wom
an needed no such advice. She was
sensible, and she realized that her
blessings had been many, for all of
fhlch she was duly grateful and ap
preciative. What ' she did need Just
at that moment was the kindly sym
pathy of a heart that could express
Itself In something other than hollow
As long as one lias good health, un

ties ,and the full use of the organs
of speech and hearing nnd of the
limbs, there is little cause to mil at
fate. iKirtleularly If precaution has

Fate is almost as homely a word as
Its twin. Luck, neither of which really
should have any place in our human
calculations. We are not children of
Fate and we are not the offspring of
Luck. Neither should have any rela-
i tlonship wjth our lives.

most any successful man or woman

Invariably disowned any relationship
with cither Fate or Luck, but they will
tell you that Hard Work and Success
are very close kin.
These people have all the way along
counted their blessings and erected
their success on the sure foundation of
gratitude. They ha.ve recognized that
nearly everything possible had been
done fo them and that if failure came

To the Editor of The Republican:
Sir While I have no desire to med
dle in the politics of this territory,
being, as I am, one of those persons
"(described by The Republican) who
have not yet shaken the dust of
other localities off their "understand
ings," I can not help coming back
at C. IJ. Wood, the high and mighty
under-sheriff of this county, after the
way he ridiculed me and my "IJoston
ese English" In the Arizona Demo
crat, when I took occasion, in my
humble way, as a free American citi
zen, to address an urgent appeal to
the constitutional convention not to
endanger the chances of statehood at
tills time by the drafting of such a
constitution as neither the president
nor congress would accept. This, I
believe, was the first note of warn
ing sounded at the time while the
convention was In session, and after
events have justified It, much to my
After all is over but the voting,
C. 11. Wood has come around to my
way of thinking. He now desires to
eliminate those features that are ap
parently objectiojjable to the presi
dent. How much better it would
have been to eliminate them in the
beginning and do as Roosevelt ad
vises, to make a constitution easy to
amend? In this case, foresight would
have been better than hindsight.
It does not follow that 1 am op
posed to the principles of the con
stitution. I know something of the
initiative and referendum and recall,
which were turned down by the leg
islature of my own statu last year,
yet a modified form of the recall
was enacted In the city of Roston.
which persisted in electing a demo
cratic mayor like the famous John
F. Fitzgerald. Strange to say. the
democrats of the old Ray State did
not seem to relish this gift from a
republican legislature. Probably they
had heard of Greeks bearing "gifts.
It Is not too late to remedy the
matter. C. R. Wood suggests the
method. We all must remember that
Arizona is an integral part of our
common country, and it Is no dis
grace for us to yield to the regularly
constituted authorities. As discretion
is sometimes the the better part of
valor in a fight, so expediency might
well be a matter of wisdom in poli
tics, especially as such principles as
we advocate can be adopted at any
iuiure time If necessary. There
is a time and a place for evervthintr.
That the present is no time for in
sisting on the adoption of our prin
ciples goes without saying, and the
sober second sense of the .people can
not but agree on this point of view.
This is no reflection on the dele
gates to the constitulonal convenion.
They were elected on nledces which
did their duty to th people as they
saw it. if we. .the people, choose to
vote down the present constitution
on account of changed conditions, the
delegates, who art' all Americans as
we know, will heed the Vilce of the
people as thus clearly indicated and
turn out a constitution more in keep
ing with the circumstances. Thev
as well as we know enough not to
butt their heads against a stone wall.
In conclusion, I wish to return mv
sincere thanks to the members of the
constitutional convention for mnklnrr
uch good provisions for the educa
tion of the deaf by the new state.
and. by whatever method achieved.
Arizona can not be made a state too
soon to suit me.

view of the controversy in regard to
this matter, and the apparent lack
of definite, accurate knowledge con
cerning it. it may not be amiss to
offer a few facts in the case, based
upon practical and technical knowl
edge. The trouble referred to is ono which
has existed ever since the advent of
trolley systems in cities. The use of
the single trolley wire and the cround
return for the operation of street cars
has always caused more or less In-
Jury to underground pipes and cables.
Tills action of an electric current is
known as electrolysis. In order to
properly understand the nature of
the action which takes nlace In this
connection, it Is necessary to con
sider the arrangement of the trolley
circuit and the way in which the
current flows throutrh it. Trollev
cars are generally run on a direct
current system, the trolley wire be
