PRESIDENT TAFT REAFFIRMS FAITH
IN REPUBLICAN PARTY.
An iutorvicw which a New York World
political writer had with President Tnft could
well bo-taken na the Republican text book for
tho campaign of 1912, as it h filled with
meaty nud epigrammatic sketches of the Re
publican creed. The followiug arc some of
tho main arguments .advanced by the President
which appears in the interview:
"Federal regulation of trusts would create a
monstrous monopoly of power."
Huch-a condition could bo
a dictator to be overthrown only
'Republican policy is not to shut out for
eign manufacturers, but to foster domestic ouea
and to keep tho American workingman em
ployed." "Tariff should be revised as far as necessary
to keep prices from being exorbitant."
"If party is restored to power the tariff'
schedules complained of will be investigated,
and changes and reductions made to sqimro
the rates with facts."
"Expoits last year $2, 170,31 9,828, of which
$G74,802,903 were manufactures ready for con
sumption." "Under Democratic WiUmi tariff bill total
exports were $S0o,200,487, of which $181,
7.r9,187 were manufactures ready for consump
tion." Will Governor Wilson dare to say that tho
Payne law is a straitjacket for Americau in
dustry andenterpiise in view of these figures?"
"Thirty-three per cent of tho Euiopean
workingmen faco starvation."
"United States Savings banks have
$4,250,000,000 in deposits."
"This shows tho American workingman is
far from starvation."
"Payue law has no more to do with the
high cost of living than tho latest Atlantic

The country has had a slight foretaste since
1910 of tho sort of government which tho
Democrats would give if they should retain
their control ovor the Home aud win tho

Resting the Hands
Do you over net your hand.? This does
not mean merely letting them Ho Idle. It
often occurs that after some kinds ot work,
such as peeling fruit, sweeping or perhaps
jthen one has baen writing fur eomo time, tbo
muscles of the hinds fori cramp id and tired.
A good soaking in hot water Is the first
step toward removing them. After thh is
done, dip thorn quickly up and down in cold
water several times, dab them dry on a rough
towel do not wipa them and then, letting
bands and fi'Tslang perfectly loose from
wrists, "first" them ?lgorous'y until the wrlet
begins to ache.
Dip them ugain In cnlJ water, spend a few
roloutes on the care of the nail, aud you will
be surprised to find how fresh and restid you
feel, not only in your hands but all over. The
hands are the must sensitive part o' the body,
aud In their freshness or weariness lies much
ofibe secret of the h1e physical condition.
