Blue-eyed men, says a Kansas
expert, make very poor husbands.
They had 326 cases of wife aban-!
donment in Kansas this year, and
in almost every case the offender ,
was a man with blue eyes. Upon i
the other hand, blue-eyed men '
make excellent Presidents, and
our own republic has scarcely
ooked anyw ere else. The only ;
dark-eyed President we ever had ;
was William Henry Harrison. He I
took one eood look at the nrob-
lems ahead of him and died in of-!
fice, leaving John Tyler, a blue
eved man. to work it all out.
Moreover, blue-eyed men have t
always been the world's cham- j
pion marksmen, and but for theni
tyrants had not been overthrown,
slavery had net been put down.
and there would be no liberty.
Dark-eyed men are brave, but
they never hit anything. This
is borne out every time there is
an international shooting match.
It is proven over and over a-
gain in the occurrence of great

In the new. One has to go only a little
way from England to Calais to find
the billion lessened, for France digni
