spread over this country men could

that the department of labor should 1

The Democrats have heard the Re

".Tust before I came away from
Washington I was going over some of

have given me this useful mforma-1
Lion, . . . tr.at if it had been a presidential
year the Democrats would
have had a majority of about SO in
the electoral college.
The Big Meaning.
"Fortunately or unforttunately, this j
is not a presidential year; but the
thing is significant to me for this reason:
A great many people have been
speaking of the Democratic party as
a minority party. Well, if it is, it is
Dot so much, of a minority party as
the Republican, and as between the
minorities, I think we can claim to
belong to the larger minority. TY.:e
tnoral oif that . . . that neither
party in its regular membership has
a majority. I do not want to make
the independent voter too proud of
himself, but I haiv~e got to admit that
ne is our doss; and 1 am tx>una to
admit that the things that he wants
sire, so far as I fnave seen them mentioned,
things that I want.
"I am not an independent voter,
hut I hope 'I can claim to foe an independent
person, and?I want to say
this distinctly?I do not love any
party any longer than it continues to
serve the immediate pressing needs of
America. I have 'been bred in tho
Democratic party, but I love America
a. great deal more than I love the
Democratic party, and when the
Democratic party thinks that is an
end to itself :hen I rise up and dissent.
It is a means to an end, and
its power depends, and ought to depend,
upon its showing that it knows
what America needs, and if ready to
?ive it what it needs. That is the
reason I say to the independent voter,

your number, but I recognize your

and I have tins ambition, my
Democratic friends?1 can avow it on
Wants Them All.
"I want to make every independent
voter of this county a Democrat. It
is a little cold and lonely out wnere
tie is, because, though he holds the
balance of power, he is not the majority,
and I want him to come in
where it is warm. I want him to come
in where there is a lot of good society,
good citizenship, where there are
great emotions. That is what I miss j
in the Republican party; they do not
seem to have any great emotions. I
TT:ey seem to think a lot of things, old j
things, but they do not seem to have
any enthusiasm about anything.
"Now there is one thing I have got
a great enthusiasm about, I might al
mo-st say a recKiess entnusiasm, and
that is human liberty. The governor
has just now spoken about watchful
waiting in Mexico. I want to say a
word about Mexico, or not so muchabout
Mexico as about our attitude towards
Mexico. I hold it as a fundamenal
principle and so do you, that
every people has the right to determine
in its form of government; and

""Now I am for the 80 per cent. It
Is none of my 'business, and it is none
of your business how long they take
in determining it. It is none of my
business, and it is none of your's how
they go about the business. The country

goes "while I am president, nobody
shall interfere with them.
"That is wfcat I mean by a great
emotion, the great emotion of sympathy.
Do you suppose that the
American people are ever going to
count a small amount of material
benefit and advantage to people do
Ing business in Mexico against the
liberties and the permanent happiness

they wanted and spilt as much blood

"That is a .perfectly safe maxim

it now as ever will 'be, and if you
start the buying there will be no end
to it, and you will be a seller as well

you as one of those wi'jo speak for
the Democratic party that it Is perfectly
safe to believe in the future. We

WHY SNOW HEATS THE HANDS

The warmth of our hands derived j.
entirely from the blood, except at times (
when something hot is actually shining (
upon them. Therefore, for some rea- ^
so or other, a very much larger amount
of blood than usual must be flowing .
through our bauds. The blood is no ! c
warmer in itself, or the wtyole of the j 1
body would at once notice it, but svhat ; ^
really happens is that the j hands are t
getting richer and quicker supply of it. (
The effect is just the same, really, as ?
the delightful slow that wte feel after- | \
a cold bath. The brain fyas the duty
of taking care of the skin, as of every
other part of the body. Now, when
the skin has been cbilifd its life has 1
been heavily taxed and it wili suffer |
unless it is compensated. So the brain j
orders the small blood vessels in the |
skin, wherever it has been chilled, to j
relax and widen so that the warm j ]
blood is able to Circulate quickly j
through them.?"Th* Child's Book of J
"Pension"' is among the numerous I

"Pension" signifies simply a payment

pension is not really something thrown *
in as a gratuity, but deferred pay. ^
The word for a soldier's pay was
"stipend!um." and here we have an
other curious shift of meaning. Nobody
speaks of a soldier's "stipend" j
now. it is a magistrate or a clergyman
whose pay receives that name.
