To Lead the Republicans
Columbus, 0., July 21. A cry
is coming up from luitimuehine
Republicans for n. bold, strong man
to lend them from the bullrufihes
of politicnl domination. It is aery
of desperation, and thero is dis
couragement lest the or' be in vain.
Thero is a smoldering all over
Ohio of a tremendous antimachine
sentiment, strong enough to throw
the strongest boss overboard, if it
could concertedly assert itself. But
n leader is lucking, and the wail is
going up for fear that before a
leader can be had the oil machine
will have the breaches of last fall
repaired and ontronch itself strong
er than ever.
All are praying that something
will turn up that will prevent the
re-election of Dick as State Chair
man ; prevent Diok forcing an anti
Kooseyolt platform, and prevent
Dick dictating tho ticket, but they
are afraid of the power of the
chauffeur of tho Republican ma
chine, and continue to talk in n
They had hoped thut Governor
Harris would nsBort his indopond
euce, but now there seems little
room to doubt that Dick will be
the chief counsellor of tho now ex
eoutive. Congressmen, Ohio
statesmen and big oitizons are
more sacred than ever, and tones
they were hardly uudible before
are now scarcely a wliispor. They
had hoped that State Commission
er A. I. Vorys would oonsent, tin
der tho bunnor of the fight for
Secretary of State, to lead the Jn
dependent forces against tho slite
jnaker. Diok regarded the Vorys
movement with more apprehension
than any other force that threat
ened to oppose him. He is said to
have talked to Governor Harris
about It, The Governor told Vorys
he wanted him to stay ut tho head
of the Insurance Department.
Another forlorn hope went glim
mering. Now there is not a man
in sight as a leader of the antima
This is the situation as it exists
in the Republican politics of Ohio
today. Dick is stronger today
than he ever was; not stronger
than the old machine, but stronger
as a personal leader of the machine.
Last fall's election killed off both
Cox and Herrick, and left Dick the
only surviving leader, who had
won spurs, or was possessed of the
wherewith to win them.
The death of Governor Pattison
and the succession of Governor
Harris, along with the showing
of this week's central committee
meeting, leave tho junior Sonutor
from Ohio tho complete master.
There is but one promising way
to eh"dce the bold leader, elevated
to the distatorship, and that is to
smash the whole machine.
Close to August Total.
Enough ruin has fallen in the
first nine days of August to make
almost the total avernce rainfall
expected during the entire month.
The normal rainfall during August
is 3.25 inches und so fur this

This reduces the deficiency for
tho year to 4.20 inohes.

Cedur Falls, Iowa, Aug. 0, An
altulr, unique Jn the history of
frutemulisin, took place here when
Frank Stowart, 78, was Initiated
a Knight of Pythias, by his eleven
sons, who were already nietnbera
of the order. The sons Were scat
tered all over the weBt, but were
secretely brought jnto theolty and
drilled before the initiation, act

er was completely surprised at the
sight of his sons.
Electricity, either man-made oi
cloud-made, porelstontly hunts for
a conductor to carry it to the earth
and It novor runs up a blind alloy.
The human body being two-thirds
wntor is a good conductor and no
opportunity to use it ub an avenue
back to earth is ever overlooked
by eleotricnl force. Rut the body
must make a connection betweon
the charged conductor and the
earth or some other conductor to
get a shock. One oiuld safely do
the "giant swing" or "nkln the
oat" oven on the power line from
tho mountain water-fall to San
Francisco whioh carries 00,000
volts, if he did not let his feet
touch the earth.
Lightning occurs where the jump
is shortest from the cloud to a
conductor hence the value of
The Electrical World and Engi
neer is the authority for tho state
ment that accidental electric shocks
seldom result in death unless the
victim is left unaided too long, or
effortB at resusitatiou are stopped
too enrly, as in the majority of in
stances the shook is sufficient only
to suspend animation temporarily,
owing to the momentary and im
perfect contact of the conductors,
and ako on account of the resist
ance of the body submitted to the
notion of tho current.
Remove body of one insensible
from electric shock at once from
the circuit by breaking contact
with the conductors. This may
be accomplished by using a dry
stick of wood, which is a non-con
ductor, to roll the body over to one
side, or to brush aside a wire, if
that is conveying the current.
When a stick is not at hand, uny
dry piece of clothing may be
utilized to protect the hand in
seizing the body of the victim. If
the body is in contact with the
earth, the coat-tails of the, victim
or any loose detached piece of
clothing, may be seized with im
punity to draw him away from
the conductor. The treatment for
lightning shock is the same as that
from dynamo electricity.
It is both useless and unwise to
attempt to administer stimulants
to the victim in the usual manner,
by pouring it down the throat.
The dashing of cold watr into
the face will sometimes produce a
gasp and start breathing. If this
is not successful the spine may be
rubbed vigorously with a piece of
ice. Alternate applications of heat
and cold over the region of the
heart will accomplish the same
object in some instances.
If these remedies fail to revive
the victim artificial respiration, as
used in cases of drowning and
asphyxiation from gas, should be
employed. The object is to make
him breathe and if this can be ac
complished and continued he can
Turn the body upon the baok,
loosen the collar and clothing about
the neck, roll up a coat and place
it under the shoulders, so as to
throw the head back, and -then-
make efforts to establish breathing.
To accomplish this, kneol at the
subject's head, facing him, and
seizing both arms draw them for
cibly to their full length over tlje
head, so as to bring them almost
together above it, and hold them
thero for two or three seconds only.
(This is to expand the ohest and
favor the entrance of air into the
lungs) Then carry the arms down
to tho sides and front of ohest,
firmly compressing tho ohest walls,
and expel the air from the lungs,
Repeat this maneuver at least
sixteen times per minute.
At the same time that this is be
ing done some one should grasp
the tongue of the aubjeot, with a
handkerchief or piece of cloth to
prevent it slipping, and draw it
forcibly out when the arms are ex
tended above the head and allow It
to recede when the ohest is com'
pressed, This scrveB the purpose

IIIETHER old age is worth striving for depends more or
less upon how the term old age is defined and conditions
which may surround it.
Persons with mental and physical energies impaired by
excesses, accidents, illnesses, avoidable or unavoidable, con
tracted or inherited, may have reached at 40 or 50 a period
of life and its conditions analogous to old age, so that its
prolongation may not be worth striving for.
A person may also, through loss of friends, relatives,
property, family, infelicity and other causes, become pre
maturely old, and discouraged, so that the effort to prolong his
existence under these conditions is not worth striving for, although
not passed the middle period of life when reckoned by years.
Then there are the criminal classes, the low and vicious, the waifs
and unfortunates, the moral and mentally diseased, the physically dis
eased who have no chance of restoration to perfect health and condi
tions of comfort and happiness for themselves or help to their friends.
They, it would seem, see little betterment in striving to attain old age,
and of necessity must give plnce to the survival of the fittest.
But to persons of sound mental and physical development, with a
desire not only to benefit self but others, whose life has been of even,'
moral tenor and of benefit to self and others, there would seem to be
every inducement to desire life's prolongation, not only to the three
score and ten mark, but beyond.
Such an one has experience and observation for guidance, has
many a source of enjoyment in life denied to those younger, and if
that life has been the means of spreading sunshine round about and
into the hearts of fellow beings, and able to continue to do so. such a
life cannot be too long on earth, where such lives never can grow old
nor out of date.
Such a life is always a busy one. It .is an honor to the person
among whom it is lived, and will not "rust out and be cast upon the
rubbish heap," but is a life that honors its maker, and fulfills the com
mand of that book of books the
Bible to love one's neighbor as him
self, and worthy of striving for.
The greatest need
of religions to-day is
that they shall make
men recognize that they
are accountable for their
might, their wealth,
their intelligence. We
need a new science of
economics not vitalized
by profits. We should
quit calling men saints who have amassed great fortunes by robbing
Paul and then giving a portion of their riches to charity. They are
doing no more than they ought to do. They are just giving back a
part of the wealth which many men have produced by their labors.
Results never justify the moans. It is written, "thou shalt not
steal," and that is for the rich as well as the poor. If the hungry
man steals a loaf of bread he is more justified than the rich who steal.
Of course, he has broken the law, but when conditions exist that men
must steal bread, society is to blame. Animals do not kill and cat
each other, but when the passion for power and wealth overtakes men
they devour one another. No one has a right to rise on the ruins of
"Thy kingdom come" of the Lord's Prayer does not refer to
a place above the skies, but to a new social condition founded upon
righteousness here on earth. No religion is a preparation for Heaven
that does not make men better on earth . No man is self made. We
all contribute, and every man should understand he is responsible for
his brother. The great trouble with religionists is that they have
not lived up to their teaching. I he hberuhsts in religion have not
emphasized it. That truth should be reiterated to every man until
he acts accordingly. Man should teach by word and deed that every
man is his brother's keeper in the fullest sense.

'A very serious
need of our country at
the present time, from
various points of view,
is a merchant marine.
The merchant marine
is needed, not only for
our commerce, but for
the navy, because in
time of war when we
put the whole fleet into active service, we will have more than double
the number of men that we have in times of peace, and the great ques
tion with the navy men is where we will get those other men. You
cannot make a sailor over night. It takes two years at least to bring
a bright young man up to the position where he is worth anything a(
all to the service, and if we have to double the number of men that
we now have, where are we going to look for them ? The only way that
we will be able to get them when we want them is by means of the
merchant marine. Jn that body of men we find the very material that
we need, men who with a few weeks of naval training will make first
class sailormen. Of course, we shall not be able to throw them right
into the best positions in the ships, will not be able to give them the
most responsible positions, but for those positions the men we are
laboring with every day, whom we are teaching, who are looking so
straight through the sights of their guns at the present time, will be
the men that we shall assign to them. The others will have to do the
heavy grade of work.
Another point of view from which to look at the need for mer
chant marine, is that we are paying out immense volumes of money
to carry our product abroad. Why should we not have the money
in this country? Why should not our own people be getting the ben
efit of it? Why should we go abroad? It may be that we are fas
tcruig the very men who are going to fight us in a few years. Nobody

IS not safe to express an Opinion that anything is im
possible, so rapidly do the dreams of to-day become the
realities of to-morrow. The croakers who asserted that
steamboats cottld never cross the Atlantic ocean were
quickly silenced, and so have the pessimists of some 25
years ago, who were sure that the cost of producing elec
tricity would forever prevent its general use. It is true
that even now electricity is an expensive luxury when
applied to the lighting of private houses or in heat
ing devices of any character, but its success in thousands
of mechanical problems makes its application the most important
of modern inventions. It is, therefore, unsafe, to assert that the
problem of Hying machine is not solvable.
It is true that little practical progress has been made, although
the mathematics of the subject have been well developed. One
of the most distinguished of American physicists assured me quite
recently that the principal problems unsolved were starting and
It seems to me, however, that other most important matter
are still undetermined, and I should say that one of the most im
portant of these is the engine. The very lowest rate of speed which
the engine of the safe flying machine must be able to impart to it
ought to be in excess of 100 miles an hour. If the machine is not
capable of this rate of speed, it will be at the mercy of even a summer
gale or a squall which may arise with hardly a moment's notice. It
is possible to-day to fly with the wind in a number of contrivances,
but most of these, like that device which was to have been operated
at a local agricultural fair, are unable to make headway against even
so moderate a breeze as 10 or 12 miles an hour.
The question of engine is, then, a very serious one, which evea
the (extraordinary development of the motors for automobiles has
by no means solved. But no one can say that some discovery of
to-morrow may not be the key to the question and furnish the needed
The second matter, the difficulty of starting and especially of
alighting, it seems to me, is a vital one. I am one of those who hold
the opinion that the balloon can never become dirigible. In any
form in which it may be constructed the gas holder must of necessity
expose large areas to the pressure of the wind. Winds at the surface
of the earth have been, known to blow trains and loaded freight car3
from the tracks, and at an elevation above the surface the winds have
It must be, therefore, that even under the conditions of ordinary
weather, circumstances will arise which will mean danger for the bal
loon and its passengers. The solution of flying, therefore, lies in the
aeroplane, if it is to be accomplished with any device with which
we are now familiar. If the airship is to be an aeroplane, it may be
said truly that we have hardly begun even the experiments with flight.
A few reasonably successful flights of moderate distance are all that
all of the experimenters together have to their credit, and we know
absolutely nothing about the problems of alighting. There is a great
field here to study, and a dangerous one, since the unsuccessful land

America , po&seisea
most of the best ath
letes in the world, as
was clearly shown in
the recent Olympic
games at Athens,
where the American
athlete carried away
the preponderance of
the prizes. On first
thought this overwhelming superiority on the part of the American
athlete would appear to indicate that America's natural stock of ath
letic quality exceeds that of any other country. The supremacy of the
American athlete, on second thought, indicates that his surpassing
power is the result of intelligent devotion to athletics.
He does not always go into athletics for his health, or for the
sport of competition; he simply loves the glory of victory, which is
enhanced by the laudation of the press. In the United States, more
than in any other country in the world, athletes abound who revel in
the exercise of acquired athletic powers. True, we have our naturally
endowed athletes, too ; but to every one natural athlete there are three
who acquire exceptional athletic qualities.
Intelligent devotees of the various events study out the possi
bilities in their specialties in a scientific manner, and by painstaking
application and training develop amazing power. James B. Connoly,
the author, is a type of the intelligent student of athletic possibilities.
Ten years ago he won first place in the hop, step and jump, and this
year he came third, although long out of practice. His ability resulted
from patient and persistent application. He calculated djstance with
the nicest accuracy, knew how many steps were necessary to collect
his force, and could expend his energy with fine economy. Ray Ewry,
winner of the standing high jump, is another self-made athlete. By
continuous practice in all standing jumps he became able to outstrip
the naturally endowed, but less skillfully trained performer.
Ten years ago a Greek showed the athletes of the world the way
over the Marathon road. Since then Americans have given that dis
tance their attention, and to-day there are several American young
men who can pass the fastest Greek in the historic run. American
skill applied to hurling- the Greek discus makes the Greek an infant
at his own game, This year the Greeks introduced a new style of dis
cus throwing, in which they excelled the American; but it is safe to
predict that before the year is out an American arm will break all
records at tliis style also,
The present success of the American athlete indicates that the
scientific supervision which athletics receive in American schools and
colleges can be depended on in the future to go ahead with the work
of cultivtaing to the highest the athletic capacity of the American
youth. So long as American colleges continue to pay higher salaries
to their athletic coaches than to their w r A 4
presidents, the possibilities of their ath- -fw ! &&
Jetes will be safe from decline.
