AGAIN A SACK-COAT REGIME.
Coattails Have Been Cut Off by the
New York American.
This is a sack-coat administration,
as contradistinguished from the silk
hat and fro-ek-coat regime of Roose
velt. Going back a bit-it seems a
long while ago now, by the way
President Roosevelt was never seen
about the white house save in the
statesman's frock coat. Roosevelt in
a sack coat would have been incon
gruous save on horseback or the
hunt. Loeb followed his chief's ex
ample; and going on down the list, we
finally come to Assistant Secretary
Latta-hre wiho carries tie messages
to congress-who never tucked the
portfolio under his arm until he had
(donned the long tailed coat and set
the silk tile straight on his head.
Now all is changed. Taft works
in a business sack suit. Carpenter
essayed the silk hat and long coat
for- the first week. and then aban
doned it for the sack coat and derby.
Finally, one day last week the pres
t ident had some appointments to send
to the senate. Latta used to be a
familiar figure in the upper chamber.
In those days it was unusual for him
not to appear there at least once
every day with a -communication from
the 'white house. So the solons grew
'to know him well. And then, on the
)afternoon in question, a tall, grave
faced young man appeared with corn
munications from the president of the
United States. Senators sat up and
rubbed their eyes in wonder. Latta, K
all right, they discovered on the see
o'nd look, but Latta in a sack suit!
So styles change, even among states
men. Incidentally, coattails are not
the only things that have been eut
off by the Taft a"imheItration.
It was on a lonely road in the Ten-1
nessee mountains. A weary rider was
slowly making 'his way up the steep
mountain side, pausing now and then
to rise in his stirrups and look about
in search of some sign of civilization.
Suddenly a turn of the road brought
him face to face with a lank-sallow-V
faced mountaineer, seated upon the
top) rail of the snake fence, whiesh I
bounded a poor ]ittle farm which had
found lodgment on the mountain side.
The rider paused; "Can you tell ~
me how far it is to'Big Stonie Gape?"'
The mountair~eer 's lips moved in ~
answer, but no sound reached the
rider's ears. He moved over nearer
to the fence and repeated the ques
tion. This t.ime he could barely dis
tinguish a whispered word or two in
the farmer's answer.
''What's the matter with you?'
he inquired, dismounting and walk
ing over to the fence where the old
man sat. "Can't you talk?''
The old man looked pityingly at
his questioner for as moment. and
then. climbing down from his seat
on the rail he walked up to the tray
eler and, putting his grizzled face
close to .his ear. whispered hoarsely:
"Yis. I k.in talk: but the fact is.
sb anger, land is so poor in these I
parts 'that I kain 't even raise my
voice. '' It

FOR THIS MOTHER
Mrs. A. G. Tuson, of Livermore, Cal.,
writes: "I picked up from my door
step one day a little book in which I
soon became very much interested.:
My little girl of five years of age had
been troubled for a long time with
loss of appetite, extreme nervousness
and undue fatigue. She was all run-;
down and in a very delicate condition.!
"This little book was very compre
hensively written, and told of the new
method of extracting the medicinal ele
ments of the cod's liver from the oil,
eliminating the obnoxious oil which is
so hard for children to take.
"'Just the thing,' said I. 'for my little
daughter,' and I immediately went for
a bottle of Vinol. It helped her won
derfully. She has gained rapidly in
Alesh and strength, and she does Lot

"I am extremely grateful for the
good it has done her, and I hope other

experience and just give Vinol a trial."
