RESIDENT WOODROW WIL
P SON of Irlticcton university Is
being boomed for governor of
New Jersey ns u preliminary to
his nomination ns the Democratic can
dldntc for president That Is the lat
est big political fact that has chnl
lenged the notice of the American peo
pleThe
The sponsors of Wilsons boom for
president and therefore of his candl
dacy for governor arc said to be ex
Senator James Smith of New Jersey
Roger 0 Sullivan of Illinois and Colo
eel George Harvey editor of Harpers
Weekly The announcement was made
after President Wilson had been In
conference at the Lawyers club in
New York
For all of these several reasons and
some others political wiseacres opine
A
that Wan street Is back ot the move
They recall that Colonel Harvey
fought Roosevelt that Roger Sullivan
was read out of the Democratic party
by Bryan and that ex Senator Jim
Smith hits long been regarded as a lit
tic brother of the trusts
However these things be the big pa
pers of the country arc taking Wood
row Wilsons candidacy for governor
of New Jersey seriously and If ho
should bo nominated and elected to
that office his candidacy for the presi
dency would bo more serious yet
Therefore he Is a factor to bo reckoned
with 1
Mentioned For 1908
It was in 1000 that Colonel Harvey
tlrst nominated Wilson for president
He threw it out as a mere brilliant
passing thought like so many of the I
Harvey suggestions but contrary to
his expectations and his experience
it caught on All sorts of letters
were received from nil sorts of cor
hrS of tho land approving the pro
posal For once in his life Colonel
Harvey had struck a popular chord
BO be kept on booming Wilson
True nothing came of It in 1008
Bryan wanted that nomination and
tho Democratic party wanted him to
have it Now apparently both Bryan
and the party have changed their
minds and there Is a chance for some
body else Why not Wilson says
Harvey so he tries for the delicious
experience of again striking the popu
bar chord But he has grown wiser in
the four years Ho has learned that
the American people demand in the
presidency a man ot some political ex
1orlence So he decides to try his can
didate in the governorship of New Ter
Boy and so qualify him for the bigger
Job At least to a man up a political
tree that looks like the psychology of
the proposition
Let us give Colonel Harvey due cred
it for one thing He has again caused
that coveted popular chord to vibrate
The talk of Wilson for governor is
blazing all over New Jersey and soon
the gossip of him for president will be
humming throughout the country
Wilson a Cleveland Democrat
Woodrow Wilson was the friend of
G rover Cleveland While the expresi
dent was at lecturer at Princeton the
two frequently discussed politics and
kindred topics Their views were In
lost accord both believing In lofty
stan hrds individual honesty and cour
age both being old school Democrats
iud both opposing Bryan Public nf
fiilrg are congenial topics with Dr WII
son for while his highest reputation
has been gained as an educator his
chief interest is political economy and
government Possibly that is because
he was born in Virginia or because ho I
once practiced law In Atlanta or it
JUay be due to temperament
Wilson is not only n political econo
mist but a historian some of whose
works have btouiue tel books Among
others ho is the author of Congres
sional Government which appeared
in 1835 and immediately gained him a
reputation as an original thinker The
State which came out in 18SO deal
lug with all branches ot constitutional
government Division and Reunion
covering American history from 1829
to 18SO Mere Literature and Other
Essays George Washington and a
History of the People of tho United
States
Most of these books are standard au
thoritles in colleges and all of them
show research scholarship and in
places brilliancy Division and Re
union while written from the view
point of the southerner reveals a
breadth and wholesome Americanism
that rob it of offense for northern read
ers
Has Grasp of Events
In all his political and historical
writings Dr Wilson shows himself a
v fundamental Democrat with a pecul
iar laslght Into tho spirit and purposes
of the founders and builders of the
nation He is also a lecturer who
gpeqkq before popular assemblies as
well as before educational and scien
tific bodies His volco is said to re
semble that of Henry Ward Beecher
DF Wilson is fiftythree years of
ago and was graduated from Prince
ton at the ago of twentytwo Ho was
christened Tboraaff Woodrow and In
college was called Tommy but like
Graver Cleveland who was originally I
JStqphen Grover he amputated the
1 first name After leaving Prin eton
WHfion studied law in the Unlyi rsjty
t > i Virginia I iud prg pcea in < M aI I
for two ttr It WM trails In eord I
B
gnu that ho met and later married Miss
Ellen Louise Axson a belle of Sn
vannaFrom
I From 1883 to 1881 he took n post
graduate course In Johns Hopkins
after which he became professor of
history and political economy at Bryn
Mawr He next held the same chair
Int Wesleyan university From 1800
to 1002 he was professor of Jurispru
dence and politics at Princeton While
In this position he was offered the
presidency of other colleges at an ad
vance of salary but preferred to re
main with his alum mater Since 1002
ho has been president of Princeton
Knows a Good Story
Despite the fact that he is n digni
fied educator Dr Wilson enjoys and
on occasion tells a good story Hero
Is one concerning his predecessor tho
late Dr McCosh
Wilson says that McCosh was known
to crack a Joke only once It was
Of the trusts he has said
The thing thai keeps water In
Mocks is secrecy If this hoard were
taken out of the sluiceway the water
would all run out and then people
would know what tluy t had loft
College Presidents In Public Office
We have hud much talk of the
scholar In politics but outside of
diplomatic positions and a few com
missions we have never placed a col
lege president In public olllcc Presi 1
dent Taft made Professor IL C I
Emery the head of the tariff board
and asked President Iladloy of Isle
to take first place on the commission
to look into stock watering James B
Angell Andrew D White and same
811meI I
elgu ambassadorships la < ob Gould
Schurman was on the Philippines com
mission but we never put the head of
a college at the head of the nation
There Is ono exception I believe as
James A Garfield In his youth had
been president of a small college
Why should we not draft the knowl
edge training and high Ideals of tho
teachers In our government service
For example why should not the train
ed political economist have sonic part
In the actual working out of the politi
cal economy of the nation If It be ob
jected that they are only theorists
then give them a chance to correct tho
defect by practical experience Both
the college and the government would
be the gainers the government In ex
ut an evangelical alliance attended by
ministers of various denominations
Dr McCosh was there us a Presby
terian The presiding officer n Bap
tist remarked
Brethren I presume that whatever
else our differences may be in denom
inational belief we can safely say that
the Apostles creed Is I a platform upon
which we can all stand
Thereupon Dr McCosh leaned over
to his neighbor the Methodist minis
ter and whispered In his rich Scotch
brogue
I should na care to descend into
hell with an Episcopalian
Hero is another good story that Dr
Wilson tells A long winded and an
cleat southern lawyer had been mak
ing a plea for three whole days The
judge became Impatient and In as io
lite n way as he could admonished him
to cut it short
And do you know says Dr Wilson
the old barrister declared that the
last four days of his argument were a
marvel of condensation
Recommended Own Portrait
A Princeton man now located in New
York relates the following anecdote of
a chance meeting with Dr Wilson
Going into Scrlbners bookstore one
morning this gentleman saw a smooth
faced middle aged man In glasses and
without a hat and naturally took him
for a clerk Woodrow Wilson had Just
been elected president of Princeton
and the former student wanted to find
out something about him Of tho sup
posed clerk he asked for some book by i
Wilson containing his portrait
There is no portrait of Wilson in
any of his books replied he of tho
glasses but if you will look in
here ho named a certain magazine
giving the month and yearyou will
find a fair likeness of him
Then picking up a hat he bowed and
went out
Do you know who that was asked
the mystified Princeton map of a real
clerk this time

50000000 to Germany
Germany has n bettor Investment In
her southwest African diamond Gelds
than has been supposed thinks Dr
Paul Rohrbach who has gone over the
ground thoroughly Dr Rohrbatb says
that eighteen months ago estimates of
from 25000000 to 550000000 as the
value of tho Luderltz buy properties
were dismissed as unduly optimistic
These properties Include all the claims
between the twentysixth degree of
south latitude and the Orange river
One of these claims which has an area
of 12000 acres and is in tho neighbor
hood of Luderltz bay will ho says
yield this year diamonds to a market
value of 25000000
This property has been worked su
perficially by tho same company for
two years and the results already ob
tamed and an investigation at deeper
levels fully Justify this forecast Other
claims hare not been worked so well
or so long as this but from his person
al experience Dr Rohrbach thinks
they too will pan out much better
than was expected

become so prevalent
that it is not uncom

born afflicted with
weak kidneys If the
child urinates too often if the urine scalds
the flesh or if when the child reaches an
age when it should be able to control the
passage it is yet afflicted with bedwet
ting depend upon it the cause of the diffi
culty is kidnpy trouble and the first
step should be towards the treatment of
these important organs This unpleasant
trouble is due to a diseased condition of
the kidneys and bladder and not to a
habit as most people suppose
Women as well as men are made miser

I
A modest demand which every hog
would make if he knew how would be
for a scratching post Such posts in
the opinion of many hog growers are
not only a source of great comfort to
hogs the picture of a hog or a pig
scratching himself and softly grunting
his content is worth a couple of hours
of any mans time in fixing up a pig
post but the post moreover be made
useful in ridding the animals of lice or
scaly skin A successful Maryland hog
grower adopts this plan Firmly plant
in the hog run a hickory or oak post
four inches in diameter Coil a manila
rODe arouud the post as high as the
hog stands and staple it on securely
Then thoroughly saturate the rope with
crude petroleum and it becomes an
ideal scratching post for hogs and pigs
They will rub against it continually
and oil is fatal to vermin Kerostne
can be used but it evaporates too read
