NO RICE, NO OLD SHOES
Once more has wentlment given way before commer
cialism, and practicality has suppressed inconvenient If
time-hallowed tradition. And this Is the way of It:
There was a swell wedding in St. Louis and right
merry was It, withal. The bride was bonnie, as all brides
be. and the groom, a "young Lochlnvar come out of the
west," was all that a Laura Jean Libbey would have de
sired. Wealth, social position, popularity, all hedged it
about, and as was most befitting, all good wishes fol
lowed the happy pair.
It was also intended, as has been the custom of old,
to have follow them a choice collection of antique foot
wear, as well as copious supplies of rice. Duly collected
were the discarded shoes, and the rations of Japan's army
were provided in sundry paper sacks, and when bride and
groom proceeded to St. Louis' great union station, thither
also went hordes of good friends to "give 'em a sendoff."
Right there Is where custom paled before modern
business, In the person of one Jerry Cookley, station
master. Time may have been when Jerry had the music
of marriage bells in his soul, but the clang of the loco
motive bells long ere this put them to flight. Hence, with,
eminently practical forethought, when he saw the hunted
and haunted wedded couple chase hurriedly into the huge
building and noted the throng of followers, Jerry acted.
The great gates rang after the married ones and right
in the faces of their pursuers. The choice collection
of old bliocm and rice was outside.
"Not for me!" said Jerry. "This is a station, not a
habitat for stray footwear nor a refuge for rice. We
don't clean up any such mess. The ones who are going
away are in; you who are not going akeddoo. It's 23 for
you; take your shoes and go!"
And outside the gates was walling and gnashing of
teeth, but the couple smiled and went their way unshoed
And furthermore, Jerry has announced that no rice
throwing cold-shoe tossing goes there any more. The
custom will hereafter be honored only in the breach In
the St. Louis station while it is In Cookley's care.
•Tis a sad world, my brothers, and a cold one—es
pecially when an arbitrary station master may step In
*nd protect a timid married couple from the anciently
permitted persecution of their "friends"!
LOS ANGELES HERALD! MONDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 13, igo&
THE NATION'S REAL FRONT DOOR
According to the government statisticians at Wash
ington the trade of the Orient Amounts to three billion
dollars per Annum. And that commerce I* said to be
small compared with the trad* of the world and to whftt
It will he when the Orient Khali have been properly ex
ploited And developed.
But how does the United States stand when It comes
to supplying this vast trade — the United States, at whose
very door it lies? The United States has only About
eight per cent of the commerce of tho orient. Europe
Bella nix times as much there as we dol
Isn't that a fact to iponrler on? Yet there la a reason
for It, and the very gratifying assertion that the trade
with Europe for l»03 (the last year for which estimate*
havo been made) Increased only $46,000,000 an compared
with 1900, while that of the United Btatos increased
149,000,000, proves the reason.
We have been conducting our Orient trade an if It
were a backdoor transaction. In other worda we have
deemed the Atlantic seaboard the front door of our nation
and have relegated the great western coast to the barn
yard status. We have been struggling for the rather
petty exchanges with Europe, fighting tariffs, discrimina
tions nnd exasperating rescripts, when our real oppor
tunities have been allowed to slumber. We have been
dealing with the fishmonger and the greengrocer up
the Atlantic alley, instead of with the tremendous whole
salers across the avenue of the Pacific.
It Is time that the United States changed front— and
the United States Is learning this, too. The vast gain
In the three years quoted shows that we are awaking to
our situation. In 1904 we took from the Orient $190.
000,000 in imports. For these we had to send them good
money, Instead of absorbing them In the balance of trade.
We allowed other nations to sell them products that we
raised; products that we sold those other nations our
selves. If they could then resell them to the Orient and
cover two profits, why cannot we cut rates and capturo
We can— but not through the Atlantic backdoor; we
must sell direct, not through European peddlers. We
have 12,500 nautical miles of Pacific frontdoor, and our
Panama canal will alone give even our rear door a short
cut to China and Japan. We will then have direct water
communication with the .producing regions of the United
States through the ports of Seattle, the Puget sound
regions, San Francisco and Los Angeles — the nearest of
all — and from thence we can ship directly to the far east.
It is time the Pacific coast woke up to Its real im
portance. It Is no longer the frontier, the jumping off
place. To the west lies the east; the short way thence Is
from the western coast. Let that coast but assert Itself
and the frontdoor of the nation will no longer be In Its
rear yard, looking backward, It will be where it belongs —
facing the great undeveloped, eager and arousing Orient.
Let this be said for the gang of youths who stole autos
and disabled them: They put Just that many autos be
yond the reach of speed maniacs. And any process that
curbs the speed maniac is not wholly evil.
Chief Auble promises Los Angeles the best police force

THEY ARE ALL COMING
Mayor Neff of Kansas City is reported as saying prior
to his departure from this city last Saturday: "We will
be with you again before many months." Major Wood
son, a Kansas City alderman, declared: "I will remove to
this earthly paradise just as soon as I can retirp from
business in Missouri."
Why, of course. So say they all. A steady stream of
easterners is now pouring Into Los Angeles for perma
nent homes and permanent settlement. Weary with the
unequal battle against snow and sleet and tornadoes and
extreme heat and cold, thousands upon thousands have
started for Los Angeles; thousands are arriving dally
and many more are only waiting tho opportunity to come.
The future of Los Angeles as an enormous and mag
nificent metropolis Is assured beyond question. Here, on
the edge of the sea, in sight of tho snow-capped moun
tains and in the midst of tropical fruits and flowers, Is
springing into life one of the great cities of the world.
For the proper reception of our eastern friends and
kinsmen, let us "build for the Immediate future — and

RESULT OF REFORM WAVE
It Is a rule In the medical profession that a sore to be
healed must be kept open and cleansed. The secret-hid
den cancer is fatal unless brought to the surface; once
seen and diagnosed, steps may then be taken toward
In the field of morals very much the same rule holds
good. Forms of wickedness, practiced In Becret, may eat
out the heart of a community and yet leave the surface
comparatively fair. Until they break out Into festering
sores their presence Is unsuspected; onco brought to the
surface remedies may be applied.
The present wave of Investigation, whereby the rot
tenness permeating certain great corporations, and in a
measure shown to be distributed through public business
in general, has served Just this purpose. The rotten con
ditions are not of the present moment; they date back for
years. They have permeated the world of business, con
tumlnated great, much respected and highly honored con
cerns and fastened their canker on men considered abovo
reproach. Yet until recently these conditions were all
under the surface, hidden, gloased over and unknown.
Revelations of these affairs have shocked and shaken
the business world. An unsuspecting public has stood
back astounded at the investigation's reports. "Can these
things have been?" they ask in amaze. Yot these things
were and had been for years; the very features that aro
most condemned are in some Instances dated back more
than a decade. But until they came to the surface who
Therefore we ought to find in this expose of the moral
turpitude of the world cause for congratulation. The
canker that has been eating away at the heart of com
mercial honesty and integrity, that has been undermining
confidence and violating trust, ii laid bare in all its
hideous features. Concealed, we knew only that some
thing was wrong; we could not diagnose the disease.
Now we know our troubles; they are placed before us in
the glaring light of day. Now we can— lf we will— .
'apply the remedies.
80 it Is that these moral earthquakes have been of
vast good to the communities In general. When the
atmosphere is cleared once more we ought to have a
better understanding of what business honesty Is, and
how to maintain It.
Styles for Boys
For the first time in many year*
there ore no grotesque styles for little
boy*. The "UHtle Lord Fauntleroys,"
Hie "Jack Tnr*" and the "Cowboys"
are no longer Been. Parents now
adays seem to recognise the equity
that a lad hag In his own personal
raiment, and therefore more common
sense Is displayed In buying- clothes
for him. The New York boy of today
Is a little man, writes a correspondent
from Oothnm. True, he wears knick
erbockers, but he does not wear curio
or •«. red sash. He has An overcoat
built on the same lines n« his dad'fl,
and he always wears fltorklngs. No
craey designs of caps are perched on
his hend, and altogether he looks llk«
ft budding little gentleman of dignity.
Parlors should be fitted entirely with
side lights, berauso they give more
light to n, room thnn candelabra. The
bulba should be placed at either ' Bide
of a mantel or In the center of the
mirror If It. In desirable. To balance
with these, others should be put at the
Bides of a door that Is most nearly op
posite and ut another door leading Into
the dining room, hall or library. If the
parlor in finished In empire, the brack

decorated with laurel wreaths, etc.
Dolls have been popular of late ns

Cleaning Paint Work
Kitchen paints will soon acquire n
shabby, dull look from the frequent
cleaning that Is necessary In this room.
The use of soap only Increases tho
difficulty, especially If the paints are
varnished. The best plan is to boll one
pound of bran In a gallon of water
for an hour, then wash the paint with
this bran water, and It will not only
be kept clean, but bright and glossy.
A woman who rejoices In a spotless
kitchen will welcome this idea.
The Use of Chiffon
A popular fancy of the moment Is to
cover an old silk dress with two shades
of chiffon. A gray glace silk shading
to rose pink that was covered flrst
with rose pink chiffon and then with a
thin quality of pale gray was the
triumph of a little home dressmaker-
The hem of the pink chiffon is bound

Atkt Abttainert to Use Influence
With Their Friends
The Francis Murphy meeting nt

twenty people signing the pledge to
nbstaln from the use of Intoxicants
and to exert themselves to persuade
others to abstain. The meeting was at

about 800. There were many women
Short nddressps were marie by John
f>. Holbrough, a locnl business man;
Rev. Charles Dnuglnn of New York,
and Frank O. Flnlayson.
The address by Francis Murphy, on
the subject "Dnlly Uread," was par
ticularly Interesting. He spoke In his
usual clear, straightforward manner,
which caught and held the attention
of his audience.
The address was a heart to heart
talk and a plea for persuasion instead
of force. He spoke from the theory
that business and money-making Is
an essential in the dally life of every
one, and harmony in the relations of
capital and labor Is a necessity.
He made a plea to those who were
already abstainers to persuade, others
to do likewise. He contended that It
Is better for a father or parent to ac
complish by love what cannot be ac
compllshed by force, In his closing
remarks he alluded to the drink habit
und the saloon as an evil that cannot
be driven or forced out of a commun
ity by a. vote. The manner of getting
rid of It, In- said, Is to stop buying
liquor and to persuade others to Btop.
Rev. Douglas In his address said that
he found that California had no Sunday
closing law and that he had found
saloons In Los Angeleß open on Sundny.
He blamed the people for the condi

TRENTON, N. J.. Nov. 12.— Antonio
Bonoma. aged 35 years and a resident
of Tullytown, Fa., was struck 'by an

Trainmen picked up the unconscious

street stntion, whence he was taken
to St. Francis hospital. He was a

His scalp was torn In several places,
lilh collarbone was broken, he had a
compound fracture of the 'left leg, the
llosh oil the calf of his right leg was
almost torn away, and he was other
wisp badly battered.
The condition of the ma.: wan such
that five doctors lent their aid in trent

caught full force by the cow catcher
and tossed Into the air.

SETS GIRLS BLUSHING
Physician Compels Pupils to Display
Vaccination Scars for In.
Special to Tho Herald.
POTTKVILLE, Pa., Nov. 12.—Con
sternation prevailed at the Garfield,
JackFon Street and grammar school
buildings the other day when Dr. "W. H.
Robinson, vaccine physician of the
Pottsvllle board of health, compelled
the pupils to display for Inspection
their arms and other parts of their
bodies where they were supposed to
have vaccination marks.
.Some of the girl pupils were greatly
embarrassed when called upon to ex
hibit the proof required.
The health authorities are taking
precautions against the spread of small
pox In this county again this winter, it
having prevailed in Schuykill for sev
eral winter seasons.
Several hundred pupils will be sent
home as the result of this inspection,
because of defective vaccination, some
of the pupils having been Inoculated six
times without it taking. The law will
prevent their return until they show
evidences of good, healthy vaccination.

hammer In hand ami destroy It. Would
not n howl go up ngainst*hlm? He
would likely be torn to pieces by the
tnob and the whole world of art would
lairiPnt the destruction of a master
piece. Suppose some one were to enter
the Louvre at Paris and destroy the
'Immaculate Conception,' by Murlllo?
After all, what is a 'Pleta' by Michael
Aiikolo or an 'Immaculate Conception'
by a Murlllo but a statue and a paint
ing by men; Hut when It Is the ques
tion of the soul of man you have tho
work of the Lord God, which Is like
a Btatue carved by Ood himself, and
woe to the man who destroys the im
age of Ood In his sou/," said Kt. Rev.
Mgr. Harnott, V. 0., yesterday morn-
Ing nt the cathedral of St. Vlblana in
nn eloquent sermon on "The Image ot
Ood in Man's Soul." The monßlgnor
dwelt nt length upon tho value of
beautifying the Image, Ho said in
"You know there are point* of resem
blance between all the members of the
human family. As there are points of
resemblance between human creatures,
bo are there points of resemblance be
tween Ood and the soul. God Is a
spirit, so Is thn soul; Ood will never
die and so will the boul not die.
"There are many things of which
we boast — parentage, wealth, family
and a thousand things, and take pride
In them. But there is nothing we
should take more pr.'de in than the
Image of God In our bouls.
"How Is the splendor to be main
tained in the soul. Sin tends to destroy
the image of Ood In the soul, and woe
to the man who destroys the image of
God In his soul. There is no man on
earth that can destroy this Image in
your soul. It Is yours and you are the
one to be held responsible.
"If we could but reflect "we would
not act as we do. Do we think we
shall escape? Man sinned; Adam fell,
and God cast him out of paradise and
said from dust he came and to dust
he should return. The Israelites of old
rebelled against Moses, who was lead-
Ing them to the promised land. God
sent the destroyers and there fell
three and twenty thousand in one day.
Can we escape If we destroy the im
age of God In our souls?
"God gave us a model in Jesus Christ
and even the divine attributes serve as
a model. Can we not Imitate the mercy
of God In being merciful to others,
and the justice of Ood by being just
with our neighbors?"
CAN'T TELL BRIDES APART
Twin Sisters So Alike That tha
Bridegrooms Become Badly
Special to Tho Herald.
SIOUX CITY, la., Nov. 12.— A mix
up was narrowly averted at the altar
when the double marriage of the Hall
sisters took place. Their trousseaus
were exactly alike, and the minister
and the bridegrooms, Thomas Kvenden
and Charles Allen, had to take their
word for It as to which was which.
Knowing the sisters were capricious
the bridegrooms feared a practical
The brides are so much alike that
their own husbands can tell them
apart only by their wedding rings.
They were born ihc same hour, bap
tized the same day, started to school
the same day, donned new dresses and
new hats the same day and were al-'
ways careful to have their wearing
apparel exactly alike to the merest de
Their parents, Mr. and Mrs. A. E.
Hall, rhristened them Mamie and Min
nie, but were always at the mercy of
the girls when it came to identifying
them. When they became old enough
to have suitors the aspirant for the
favor of either of the twins found him
self at the mercy of tSe other. If the
latter Insisted that she was the one he
was wooing he was unable to success
fully argue the point. Consequently
their suitors were fenced to come In
pairs, and so long as both were thor
oughly satisfied they wore their rings
and ties In such a manner as to enable
the young men to tell which was
Mamie and which Minnie.
