Senator Burton's announced retirement from pol
itics and his decisiou not to enter the race for nom
ination for the United States Senatorship, are re
ceived as timely by most Ohio Republicans. Thus
Senator Burton will retire from a twenty years'
term of public life of his own volition, rather than
upon the voice of the electorate. Senator Burton
has rendered signal service to the Country, par
ticularly while in the House, and having readied a
period in his public career where he failed to elicit
a full hearted response and approval from his
constituency, by virtue of his attitude on many im
portant public questions, his retirement we say is
timely and in keeping with the best interests of
"CHARGING IT" AT GROCERS.
In a conference upon the cost of food, under the
auspices of the Association for Improving the Con
dition of the Boor, Alfred 1). Woodruff, of the Bu
reau of Food Supply, gave a startling account of
what happens when the grocer "charges it."
""We have found," said Mr Woodruff, "Hint
only about .'50 per cent, pay their bills promptly in
30 days; 28 per cent, take from one to three months
to paj'; 40 per cent, never pay in full, and 12 per
cent, never pay at all." With sueh drawbacks to
the credit system it is not astonishing that grocers
go bankrupt in spite of high nominal profits.
Mr. Woodruff thinks that if women will pay as
much attention to domestic economy as to "dress,
bridge parties and tango teas;" if they will pay
cash, buy in large quantities and test short weights,
"not less than 25 per cent, might be deducted from
the gross profits."
It is only the exceptional woman in New York
who has room to store in a proper manner supplies
bought in bulk, or time to make a study of market
conditions; the percentage of housekeepers who
devote much time to dress, beyond what is nec
essary, or to bridge and tango teas, i.s small indeed.
Let this small element take to heart Mr. Woodruff's
advice if they wish. The average hurried house
wife will go on doing the best she knows how with
in her conditions.
Something could be done if grocers themselves
would substitute weekly for monthly payments
and shut down upon long accounts. If they do not,
it is hardly fair to blame the customers alone.

OLD CUSTOM TOTTERS.
The enterprise of the motion picture makers has
jeopardized an ancient and honorable institution,
towit, the students' duels in Germany. Because
certain students whose reverence for the tradi
tional dignity of the Mensur duel was not as pro
found as it should have been, and because they
"faked" students' duels for the film makers, the
German Government is seriously considering abol
ishing university duelling throughout the empire.
That part or the student body which respects the
traditions and upholds the practice of student
duelling i.s making a vigorous light on the pro
posed abolition of sword-crossing. The students
admit that the young men who posed for the films
did not respect the code as they should, and acqui
esce in theOovernmcnt 's theorythat Mensurduclling
should not be commercialized. They hold, however
that the groat universities like those at Heidelberg
and Leipzig whose international fame depends, in a
measure, upon presenting students with sears as
well as ".sheepskins," should not be deprived of
this peculiar prestige. They further admit that
there exists in these cities a clique of surgeons who
make a practice of embellishing students' counte
nances with painless scars for a price, and also
"voice a protest" against this practice.
Many graduates of the German universities of
the old days who wear "honorable" students' scars
regret the proposal to abolish duelling, but there
is not much .sentiment in that direction among the
younger generation. The German Government
realizes this, and for that reason it is not unlikely
that the practice will soon be "numbered with the
things that were." Louisville Times.

Tho artist was shocked: ho seoinod to see his liit eom

ho answered, aiiilv :
"O yes; bring mo your fathei 's photo."
"But I biif no photo of him," was the disappointing

"Certainly; o.omo back in ten dni." And tho .utist

At tho end of the timo the patron reappeared, and be
