BANKSJN FOREIGN LANDS.
Several of the largo banks of New York City are
preparing to establish branches in Uio de Janeiro,
Buenos Ayrcs, Valparaiso, Lima and other South
The German banks restorted to this expedient to
stimulate German trade in South America years
ago, and it is said that it has worked well.
Nobody seems to be thinking at the present tim
of opening new banks in Mexico, and certainly tin.
hanking business in that distressed country is a
risky venture, judged by the operations of Gen.
Huerta with the banks in the Mexican capital.
THE SUGAR TRUST PUT ONE OVER.
The Tariff tinkers in Congress are just finding
out that the Sugar Trust put something over them
in the new free sugar law. When the Tariff is
taken off in WIG tl" Trust expects tii.it the licet
sugar factories will all be out of commission, and
they will then he able to supply all the sugar eon
sumed in this count cy at an ii'h.uii-i1 of a lew 'cuts
a pound, which on 8,000,000.000 pounds consumed
annually by Americans, will make quite a nice little
sum middled from the "peepul" by that damphool
Free-Trade law. Oh, thou mighty Czar Wilson,
that could soft-soap a supposedly intelligent body of
Congressmen! lints off to you, oh, Mighty School
Teacher. Pueblo (Col.) Sunday Opinion.
HITS LOBBYISTS HALEY
Representative Price, of whom every Democrat
in his native county of Clark should be proud, met
defeat in having his resolution expurged from the
House record, but that doesn't prove that Percy
Haley and Sam Sliaekleford arc not notorious lob
byists. Those memb'irs who were so anxious to
have the matter dropped and threatened to insti
tute proceedings, ousting the gentleman from Cov
ington, are not cleansed of the implication and
they have so far dropped the light against Mi'.
Price, and they dare not carry it very far. Percy
Haley has been a menace to the Democratic parly
of the State for years, and with others, who were
looking for their own selfish welfare responsible
for a Republican administration in Kentucky.
The Legislature would tread on exceedingly dan
gerous ground in refusing to submit again the con
stitutional amendment for convict labor on public
Jt would flatly deny the people of Kentucky what
they have voted for.
It would do deliberately what the Secretary of
State has been indignantly condemned for doing
through negligence of duty.
It would lay itself open to charges which would
bring scandal upon itself and the State.
The situation is clear. The voters of Kentucky
have declared for this reform. I f the Legislature of
Kentucky, making good the negligence of the Sec
retary of State, denies them this reform there is go
ing to be a State-wide stench when the question
arises, why this denial? If the people want the re
form and the contractors do not want it, a decided
ly ugly situation would be brought about by the
Legislature doing the will of the contractors in
stead of the people.
A Legislature which has displayed such ebullient
sensitiveness about its honor because somebody
proposed an investigation of its relations to Percy
ll.'.ly and Sam Shackelford would, it seems, hesi
tate long before giving its critics such an opening
as that. Courier-Journal.
Utuh, which had u record production of copper
in 1912, exceeded that year's figures and made a
still higher record last year.
TATTOOING OUT OF FAVOR.
The practice of tattooing is disappearing from
the United States navy. The practice originated
u'tli the uncivilized people of the South Sea is
lands. Twenty years ago blue jackets believed
that they were not full-fledged men of Iho sea
until they had red and blue designs inked into their
sKiu. Their cruises to far eastern port., were partly
responsible for this. In the Orient a great lrnnl or
Oi the male folk arc tattooed on sonic portion of
the bod)', and there are thousands of experts who
arc willing to lend their art for a small price. The
spread eagle is perhaps the most popular design.
Superstition enters largely into the selection of de
sign. For example, a tombstone is supposed to pro
tect a man's loved ones at home.
THE HAPPIEST COUPLE.
Here is a wife and mother for you:
"Have borne ten children," she writes to The
Herald, "and have never given the danger a
thought. Am strong and healthy, have a happy
home and a good husband who thinks the world of
me. "We aren't wealthy and have no desire to bv.
Riches cannot compare with a baby."
They aren't wealthy, did she say?
Why bless her good, kind soul, there isn't a
wealthier couple in all the land. Rockefeller is a
pauper and Morgan a starveling in comparison.
For Rockefeller has only money and Morgan only
money and power, whereas these twain have happi
ness, the most precious value in the world. Ilappi
ncss and love and the inspiring care of children,
who are at once the most interesting, amusing and
uplifting influences n earth.
Jiut isn't it rare and refreshing, tlio, to meet a
person who sincerely doesn't want to be money
rich? Who really doesn't, hunger to be surrounded
by luxuries, weakened by indulgence or warped by
This happy mother of ten, whose good husband
loves her. and in whose home the graces sit en
throned you just know that she's telling the
truth when she says she hasn't any desire for what
the world calls wealth; for, compared with what
she has. gold would seem dross and an excess of
things only bother and embarrassment.
"We can get love and happiuess, too, as easily as
we can get gold when we try with equal diligence.

Many an humble lover makes a boss husband.
