I 6 TRUTH
H 1 Senator Sutherland's speech in tho
H. I United States senato In defense of
H I his colleague, Senator Smoot, was a
H X logical and able argument. Ono of Its
H 1 leading features was Its absolute fair-
i V ncss and tho absenco of any desire
H ' to cover up or conceal any of tho facts
or misrepresent anything. In theso
H regards it stands out in strong con-
H trast to tho tirado of Senator Bur-
H rows, which was a mass of mlsroprc-
m scntatlons and falsification. Mr. Suth-
HN crland's premises wcro sound In all
B , respects from a legal and common-
B sense standpoint and his statement of
' tho conditions existing In Utah was
, truo to tho facts. Tho speech was
B moderato in tone, dignified and con-
M incing. Tlicro is no manner of doubt
Out Mr. Smoot will kept his scat. Tho
M sooner tho question reaches a voto tho
B better. Tho people of this stato are
H weary of the whole business and so
m are tho people of tho rest of tho

H Is soreness and dissatisfaction over

Seeking One, Man Overheard Tip
From John W. Gates.
At the Waldorf the other night
Charles M. Tchwab was seated with a
party of friends when ho happened
for the moment to have his attention
directed to a toothpick which he hold
in his hand, and remarked:
"I scarcely ever take a toothpick
without being reminded of tho time
when an acquaintance of mine made
$3(1,000, and It was a toothpick that
did tho trick.
"You see," he continued, "It hap
pened In the spring of 1904, when on
tho day in question my friend was tak
ing luncheon at this hotel, and after
ho had finished and paid his check ho
directed his steps toward Broadway.
Ho had proceeded scarcely half a
block, however, when he found him
self greatly annoyed by a particle of
food very firmly we.lsed between two
of his teeth, and, finding himself with
out n toothpick, ho retraced his steps
to tho hotel to get one.
"On his way out of tho hotel ho
chanced to pass a table at which woro
seated John W. Gates and a friend,
and just as ho reached the table ho
heard Mr. Gates remark:
"'I feel very positive that you will
see Steel (common) selling at 10 be
fore the'end of the summer.'
"Now, my friend did not happen to
make a regular business of trading in
tho market, but knowing It was Mr.
Gates who made tho remark, and also
tho great weight his word carried in
such mattp-s, ho decided to take ad
vantage of tho tip and It did not take
him long to place his order with a
broker to sell 1,000 shares of Steel
"Wall, you all know what Steel did
dur'ng tho summer of 1904, going
do-.-n below nine, but my friend or
dered his trade to bo closed around
10, and ho cleaned up a profit of $30,
000, which he never would have mado
had it not been for tho littlo tooth
pick." N. Y. Press.
"Yes, he's very vindictive. That's
ono of his worst faults," said Gadd.
"I didn't know ho had that fault,
too," said Lenders.
"Oh, yes; I tell you, I'd hate to have
a man like that owe mo a grudge."
"Yes, but there's his other fault.
He never pays what he owes."
Telephone Hears Whispers Best.
Tho secrephono Is tho whispering
telephone. A message can be whis
pered into It so that a person standing
but a yard away cannot hear what is
being said, while every word is cor
rectly transmitted to tho receiver at
the other end of tho lino a mile away
or more. For this to bo done the mes-
sago must bo actually whispered. If
spoken more loudly, of course, tho
speaker can bo heard moro than a
yard away from tho transmitting in
strument. Properly used, however, a
message can bo sent in privacy oven
with people quite close.
As present experience goes it re
quires somo littlo practice to pitch tho
volco correctly so as to got the best re
sults with tho faintest whisper. But
tho lesson Is not difficult to learn.
People with high-pitched voices will
undoubtedly make themselves heard
more distinctly at tho other end of the t-".
line with less noise at tho transmit
ting end than Is possible for those with
lower-pitched voices. Tho Instrument
Is claimed to bo practically imperish
able and cannot get out of order with
Ono of tho secrets of a smoothly
running married life is an occasional
