ROOSEVELT DISTRACTED THE NATION.
Mr. lloosevelt split a party that he might
havo saved. lie attempted to thwart tho
triumph of another party that deserved success.
lie distracted a nation that was prepared to
" pass emphatic judgment upon notorious
"wrongs, lie gave up a position in which he
was generally honored to become the leader of
a faction, lie passed from a retirement of
peaco to a career of turbulence, and to no pur
pose. If it is any satisfaction to him to know
that he has done what no other mail could
have done, he is welcome to tho reilectiou.
Men who have been President of the
United States are never stiipped of all their
.powers, no matter how complete their retire
ment may be. He has done ama.mg things
politically, not because he is Theodore Hoose
velt, but because he is a former Presidont of
the United States, who has flouted tradition
and made himself the idol and the hopo of
the revolutionary." New York World, Dem
ocratic. WAS IT WORTH WHILE?
Moi'o in sorrow than iu auger, more with a
feeling of sympathy thau of condemnation, wo
would like to abk the leaders of tho Progres
sive party whethei they aie entirely satisfied
with their work, which culminated yestorday
in the wreck of the Republican party and the
defeat of William H. Taft.
Mr. Roosevelt "has entirely changed his visit
ing list, lie has broken practically all his
fiiendships of a lifotime; and he has failed in
his ambition to havo a thiid teim as President.
He haft caused numerous of his newer friends
to spend their private fortunes like water; and
he has created a feeling of distrust of Ameri-
can institutions in the minds of a large number
of persons. But fortunality, that large number
of persons is a very small minority of the total
citizenship of the Uuited States, The consti
tution still stands; tho (Jovornment still lives;
and it is to be hoped that the course of pros
peiity will continue.
Was it worth while? Out of the wreckage
of the Republican party tho Progressive party
can not bo built up. It is not founded on
strong underlying principles. Those who have
supported it are, for the most part, men of no
deeply grounded views'. But tho grand old
party, which honored Mr. Roosevelt, lies pros
trate in tho dint, aud tho Democracy has come
into control of the Government. Was it worth
whilo? Now York Herald.
Man has been called tho sick animal, An

Civilized man is especially likely to bo sick,
for tho things that improve lifo also make ua

America has a tromendous sick list. A

people actually sick, at all times. Our sick

twice tho revenue of tho Government. This
cstimato does not include the incalculable loss
of efficiency of peoplo who aro just tired, fag
ged, below par.
As a sick Nation wo havo dono fairly. We
could double, treble, quadruple our work if
we wiped out sickness. It is no idle droam.
It can be dono. One of the greatest reforms
now on in this country is to "get well."
Wo have obliterated yellow fever and scuivy
and almost ended smallpox. la anothoi gen

will bo held up to public sooin. Today there
are 500,000 peoplo continually sick from tu

in bad-tasting drugs, but aro finding that pure

mosquitoes and rats aro half the battle, and
freedom from worry and angor the other half.
Wc aro wisely spending much thought on
the conservation of our natural resources; we
are just as wisely devoting thought and effort
to conserving our vital resources.
By lengthening and strengthening our lives
