I BACKBITING IN WASHINGTON.
Big men sometimes are as small as little men. The controversy
between Admiral Suns and Secretary Daniels is proof of pettiness
in the make up of those who are deemed capable of having Hie des
tiny of our navy in their keeping.
The whole controversy has its trivial bearings, and the princi
pal offender has been Admiral Sims who opened the personalities
with a disparaging reference to the manner in which the head of the
navy conducted his office during the war.
No doubt Daniels made his mistakes for he has not attained
perfection. Sims has had a reputation for loquaciousness ever since
his speech in-London years ago when he attempted to forecast that
whatever be the troubles of the future, America, by reason of the
ties of blood, would be found on the side of Great Britaim His ut
terances at that time were viewed as indiscreet, if not a direct irritant.
I THE CRIMES OF THE DAY.
An army officer who visited Ogdcn said the country was in
Sanger of demoralization. .
There is uneasiness everywhere. Since the war people seem
to have drifted from safe anchorage.
Nations are quarreling. Individuals are dissatisfied and every
thing is far from normal.
In this country the upset which prevails is in part manifested
tn a wave of crimes. During one week the papers have carried stor
ies of a man who murdered half a dozen women ; of a farmer who
killed seven members of a family; of a mob that put a negro to
death; of a bandit who robbed a train near Chicago, killed a police
man and was killed.
There are mutterings in this country of a storm which is brew
ing. "When will a settling down be experienced? "When will the dark
dlouds roll away and the sun shine? AVhen will peace of soul pos
sess us? J
."When? "Well, not one minute sooner than the people begin-jso
realize that three-fourths their present troubles, are of' the mind and
the other fourth is divided between profiteering and other forms of
I AIRSHIPS OVER OGDEN.
"Word has been received from Chicago of an aerial passenger line
, to operate daily between New York and San Francisco.
"What seemed to be a wild dream twenty rears ago is about to
be realized. The man who, when Prof. Langley's machine fell inJLo
the Potomac river, would have predicted the convejing of passen
gers by airship across the continent would have been looked upon
as a dreamer of things absurd and beyond attainment. But aerial
navigation no longer is in the realm of fancy.
"Within the week Ogden has been visited by a government of
ficial mapping out an air mail route from ocean to ocean, and now
commercial concerns are building airships as the first move in the
carrying out of plans to fly with human freight across the plains,
over the mountains and down to the ocean side.
If, when the pioneers were on that long hike in 1847, they had
turned their eyes heavenward in their dailj devotions, and an aero
plane had sailed out of the clouds, the sight would have been start
ling in the extreme and the appearance attributed to anything but
Since 1847, the trail of the pioneers, which was a cloud of dust
in the long ago, has been traveled by stage, by passenger train, by
automobile, and now the airplane regularly is to fly over the route.
- Man no longer is chained to earth.
I PROFITS ARE TOO LARGE. y
Our eastern manufacturers of men's suits must be making prof
its even beyond the demands of greed when their prices are so high
as to compel retailers to sell suits at $60 to $80 which England of
fers to deliver in this country at $2S.40, after allowing for a 20 per
Yesterday a iLondon manufacturer was quoted in New York as
. saying that all-wool suits would be delivered by his company to the
retailer at $32, after paying freight and duty.
There is something radically wrong in the United States, some
where between the- point of production and the consumer. Farm
ers produced potatoes last fall and sold them at $1.50 a hundred.
Now the consumer is being asked $8 for the same potatoes. Sugar
was turned out and placed on the market at $9.0 to $10 a "hundred.
The same sugar is retailing at $25 to $28 a hundred. And now we
are told that the Englishman, buying wool in the same market as
the American, and then paying duty as a handicap, is ready to sell
us our $60 and $80 men's suits at $32!
No wonder the voice of protest is being heard.
It would be wisdom, before the storm breaks, for big concerns
in the eastern part of the United States to begin to scale down their i
profits, and by so doing help allay the unrest which is everywhere j

ice, Washington, D. C.
The skin, through millions of little
ducts, Is continually discharging waste
matter from tho body. The surface of
the skin is also supplied "with a scaly
layer and a coating of fatty matter
which aro being constantly renowed
and thrown off.
If these subBtances aro not promptly
removed from the skin, particularly
in warm weather, they decompose and
'tlon of the skin is more or less im
paired. More important still, if poisonous
products formed in tho body are not
promptly eliminated through tho kid
neys and skin, uncomfortable or se
rious rosults are sure to follow.
The frequency with which a person
should bathe to insuro cleanliness dc
ponds largely upon the character of
work performed, climatic conditions
and other factors. While the old-time
weekly bath may in a way answer the
purpose of cleanliness during the cold
weather, it docs not maintain ade
quately a clean and pleasant condition
of the skin during the summer. Even
then a daily bath and tho free use of
soap and water are not alwa3's suffi
cient for this purpose, particularly
about tho parts which are in close
While a tub bath is useful for the
weekly scrubbing, it is not as satis
factory or stimulating as tho shower
bath, and there is no doubt that In
the future tho latter will replace the
tub for bathing purposes.
It is true that not everyone has a
tub or shower bath at his disposal,
but everyonecan obtain a large sponge
at a moderate price, plenty of soap
and an ordinary waEh tub or some
other simple receptacle.
Water is always available, and with
this outfit the skin may be kept in
good condition. Whatever form of
bath is selected, it must be remem
bered that the skin cannot be properly
cleaned without the use of soap. j
Tho very young, the very old and
invalids are not proper subjects for
cold baths at any time. The shock
which follows the sudden reduction of
temperature of the surface of the body
is not usually succeeded by a prompt
and healthful reaction in these-cases,
and not infrequently unpleasant re
sults ensue. Neither is the practice
of plunging into a tub of cold water
in the morning, particularly In the
winter, to be recommended to anyone.
The most valuable, stimulating and
pleasurable dally bath for a person in
good health Is a very warm shower
bath of short duration, followed by a
cold shower for the fraction of a min
ute only. In this way the surface of
the body having been warmed, the
cold showers produce less shock than
if the warm water had not first been
applied. The cold shower alone is not
as acceptable, and certainly not as
pleasant and stimulating as the com
bined shower. This bath should be
taken upon rising in the morning and
followed by a brisk rub with a coarse

bathing must be placed in the list of

idea that this kind of bathing' is uni

not. Thoso who enjoy swimming in

In caso of young persons tho ill ef
fect of this is not so apparent, but
older persons or very young children
are very apt to suffer from exhaustion
and extreme coldness of the surface.

Cost of Motoring
Excuse me while I shed a tear and
raise a loud lament; tho price of tires
has climbed, I hear, some twenty
five per cent. I have to buy four
times this spring, or run her on the
rims, and I am saddest when I sing
theso cost-of-scorchlng hymns. The
cost of gas Is rising too, tho gas that
runs our boats; and every time my
car goes "choo!" It burns up seven
groats. And oil is going up with gas,
the oil wc all must buy; and so I
pause to say "Alas!" and say it with a
sigh. And sparkplugs cost a bono a
throw, that once were fifty cents; and
motorists, submerged In woe, aro sulk
ing In tneln tents." They gazevupon
tho windswept hill they can't afford to
mount, for every mile runs up n bill
that breaks their bank account. They
view the long Inviting road whero they
would like to speed, but they are
chained to their abode by cost of:
things they need. They cannot tour!

WASHINGTON, May 11. It was
just a littlo joke by Boies Penrose,
his suggestion of Philander Knox as
Republican candidate for president j
He did it to tease Hiram Johnson.'
This Is why It is a joke: j
Johnson and Knox. are. strancely
enough, close personal friends. When
Johnson came to the senate three
years ago, he happened to draw a seat
next to Knox.
He had always heard of Knox as
one of the "old guard" and a danger
ous reactionary, and he was prepared
to dislike him. But while some of
the other senators were rather nasty
to the new member from California,
Knox was friendly and decent.
Johnson found that Philander had a
sense of humor and some redeeming
political beliefs and when It came' to
the treaty they were on all fours as
So in time Johnson and Knox set
tled down to being good chums.
Mrs. Knox gae a tea for Mrs. John
son and the bond of amity was sealed.
Knox has been tipping Johnson on
all the "Inside stuff" from the reaction
ary camp, while Johnson has been
keeping Knox's progressive eye open.
And that is how it happened that
when Penr'ose say Johnson coming
down the political pike in an 8-cylin-der,80-horsepower
burst of primary
popularity, headed straight for the ga
rage, he quickly stfoved Philander into
the right of way and yelled, "Halt!"
