THEY REALLY DO IT
A correspondent who nsks us, quite unnecessarily, to excuse his
handwritinR invites editorial comment upon the following" statement
of facts :
I have been a farm hand for nine years; and, as I have behaved
myself and done what, was right, I have got along first rate. First, I
got thirty dollars a month, and for several years thirty-five dollars,
and, as 1 have my keep, too, don't have much expense, except a suit
once in a while. I have twenty-seven hundred and forty dollars in
hank, and have an endowment policy for two thousand dollars that
will he due in six-years. Next year I'll have three thousand dollars
saved, and then I'll put it out on a good mortgage at six per cent.
That will bring me a hundred and eighty dollars a year. So, wlun
I get the insurance, I'll have six thousand dollars; and then I'll buy
my farm and pay cash, and be my own boss. That's doing pretty
good, ain't it? And then I'll be thirty-six and will get me a wife
I didn't go tumbling round the country, but just stuck. I have
worked : but I guess that's better than the moving pictures and base
ball. And if the old grandfathers hadn't worked hard where would

POSTPONED BUT NOT SOLVED
It is becoming every day more evident that instead of getting
nearer to a solution of the controversy between railroad employes
and the railroad managers, the hasty legislation of the last sessiot
of Congress added to the difficulties. The present session of Con
press must deal with the eight-hour problem, and it is complicate."
by the fact that there must be taken into consideration the rights and
interests of the 80 per cent of the employes who were not affected
by the legislation known as the Adamson law, and also there must
be consideration of the need of increased freight rates in order to
make up the increased expenditures forced upon the railroads. Com
pulsory arbitration v. ill njilHtally be a feature of attempted legiala
tion on this subject.

WELL, WHAT NEXT! I'SE "ICE
STORM" AND ILA2E" INSTEAD
OF "SLEET," OFFICIALS
Washington, December 27 The old
fashioned "sleet" Is going out of style
this winter before the newer "ice
s'orm" and "glaxe", Weather Bureau
officials reported today in their cam
paign for more accurate terminology
for various kinds of frozen rain.
Sleet is officially described as smell
globules of rain frozen before striking
the earth. When ram freer.ea after
falling and forms a glassy coating oft
the ground, trees and wires the condi
tion la called a glaze, and when this is
severe and accompanied by wind it is
reported as an icestorm.
The Weather Bureau hopes to elimi
nate what it considers to be Improper
use of the word "sleet" as it ha
caused substitution of the term "tor
nado" for "cyclone" when a violent
storm of amall diameter is meant.
