TOO FOND OF EDUCATION.
The Impression Is gaining that
Americans are too foiul of talking
about education and trying to (orce
what tlioy call education on others.
Tho reformers who have the educa
tional nut have succeeded In having
u law 'passed shutting out uneducated
K this law had been passed in tlmo
It would have shut out tho Pilgrim
Fathers, whoso stock of education
was exceedingly limited.
It would also shut out most of tho
present natlvo American population
of tho west side of tho State of Michi
gan, where It Is almost linposslblo to
11 nd a village tax collector who can
sign Ills name to u tax receipt.
In a recent big lawsuit between n
Chicago dally nowspaper and a na
tlvo American Michigan multi-mil-llonalro
tho chargo wbh brought out
that this successful business man
could neither read nor wrlto.
Now tho reformers want, oinlgranto
to know how to road and wrlto Eng
lish before they can como ashore to
Work our coal mines,
Work on our farms or
THE YACHT RACE.
Tho most ridiculous form of sport
known Is International yacht racing.
Tho only speed shown in ono of

of their wearers Is to got Into white
pants and havo their pictures tuken
Tho yacht races should bo sailed
on dry land.
Then thoy would not havo to bo
postponed on account of
Or wet water.
