WILL INDORSE ROOSEVELT
Junior Senator Interviewed After Hla
Conference With the President at
Sagamore Hill Says the Latter Ic
Anxious For Republican Success In
Oyster Bay, Aug. 1. For two hours
Tuesday evening President Roose
velt discussed with Senator Charles
Dick of Ohio and Secretary Elmer
Dover of the Republican national
committee the coming congressional
campaign and the political situation
in Ohio. Aside from the advantages
of the discussion, the simple fact that
Senator Dick was a guest at Saga
more Hill and came away bearing the
president's expressions of enthusias
tic desire for harmony and success in
the coming congressional campaign
is tegarded as a political occurrence
which will have decided weight In the
Republican situation in Ohio.
Senator Dick has for many years
made the first draft of the state plat
form, and this was one of tho princi
pal topics of his discussion with the
president. As indicating the patt
Piesident Roosevelt took in the con
feieuce, Senator Dick said: "The
president Is very gteatly interested
iu the result of congtessloual elec
tions, and he does not hesitate to say
so- RUdrtfully. ho feels that he has
nuuuate.a "0",C1? wmcu "! '"
hopeful of concluding successfully.
Tills can only bo accomplished with
the help of a Republican majority in
tho Sixtieth congress. The ptesldeut
is ready to do all he can to btltig
about a Republican victory In tho
couilng campaign. This does not
moan that he is going ou tho stump
or that he is to nilnglc in local con
ferences, but ho will have a keen gen
eral interest iu the result and will aid
In all possible ways "
Besides the stioug Indorsement of
the president with which tho Ohio
platform Is to be .featured,, there is
to be a "stand-pat" declaration re
garding tho tariff. General Dick ex
ptessed himself freely on this point,
"It would be practically Impossible
for the Sixtieth congress to revise the
tariff," ho remarked; "besides, It
would be bad political sense, There
has never been an exception to tho
occurrence that when a political par
ty iu control of consiosa undertook
to revise the tariff two years preced
ing a national election, it failed to
olect Its candidates in that election"
After lauding tho DIngley law. the
senator 1 ununited:. "We must at the
pinner time, however, recognize and
deal with tho sentiment which de
mands a levlslon of ceitaln ached'

"Is this the way to the handker

The man who asked the question
wore a hat, and the man of whom

the momentary pause which ensued
the man with tho hat observed that
the man without .1 lint really cur

"1 don't know the why to the

man without a hat, "but will you be

"Then iloorwalkers should be re

Origin of "Grass" Widow,
"She k a grass widow," Baid the
professor, nodding in the direction
of a woman Avith yellow hair.
"A 'grass' widow ? Oh, professor,
I didn't think you would use slang."
'Grass' widow is not slang," said
the professor stoutly. "It is, on the
contrary, a very ancient und correct
expression. Jt comes from the
French 'grace.' It- was. originally
written 'grace' widow. Its meaning
is 'widow by courtesy.'
"There is nothing slangy or dis
respectful in the term 'grace wid

with propriety." New York Press.

to partake of Borne food, they built
a fire, and, not finding any stones
on yhicb to place their kettles, they

The heat from the tires melted the

und formed a transparent matter,
