to get a quorum and adjourned with

In his message President Taft gave
Congress his opinion oi the charge
:hat he had been playing politics in
lis recent executive order putting
36,000 fourth-class postmasters under
the civil service. The President made
the counter charge that his accusers
on the floor of the house were telling
"untruUis," and declared that he deep
ly regretted the failure of Congress to
pass, legislation which practically
would destroy the "spoils" system.
"Criticism has been made of this
order on the ground that the motive
was political," said the president.
"Nothing could be farther from the
truth. The order was made before the
election and in the interest of efficient
Final Warning to be Given Madero
One more warning will be given
President Madero of Mexico to pro
tect American life and property in
his republic, and if this goes unheeded
the United States will act. This ad
mission was made by an official of
the state department, who said the
tenor of the ultimatum to be sent was
purposely allowed to leak, so that
Madero might realize the situation and
take immediate action. It was em
phaticaly stated also that the warning
would be the last diplomatic demand
for protection of American citizens in
New Primary Proposed
Senator Bristow, of Kansas, has in
troduced a bill providing for a pref
erence primary for the appointment
of postmasters, which would affect
the appointment of every postmaster
in the United States who receives
$300 or more a year.
Senator Bristow's plan is to hold a
nominating election for postmasters
hereafter where vacancies occur for
the postoffice, filling the office by
the voice of the people. The candi
date receiving the largest number of
votes cast in the nominating district
would be appointed by the Postmaster

ing election may be held at the time
of the county, state, local or municipal
election next preceding the expiration
.of the term of the postmaster, at the
discretion of the Postmaster-General.

The suit already involves the largest

John H. Hall Pardoned
Washington.—John H. Hall, ex-Uni

pardoned by President Taft. Hall is
pardoned on two grounds. First, that

HINTS FOR THE
Window Refrigerator That
Folds Up When Not In Use.
With the approach of cold weather
the window refrigerator will take the
place of the indoor icebox in many
households. There are a number of
types of window refrigerators, but the
one shown herewith, designed by a
Pennsylvania man, has the advantage
of being collapsible. When not in use
it can be folded up. A folding frame
work of box shape is pivotaily attach
ed to the window frame. A flexible
cover incloses the box to keep out the
sun and rain. Along one side is a
shelf for articles that need to be sepa
rated from ihe other contents. Ihe
roof and the-floor of this receptacle
are joined l»y links instead of
solid supports, and when the toggle
links are flexed the whole superstruc
ture sinks and folds up Hat upon the

paraffin is hard cover it with the tin
covers. It is not necessary-to heat the
sugar before putting in the liquid.
Baked Salmon Steak.
Take thick slices of salmon and a
baking pan large enough to hold them
in single layer. For each slice use one
tablespoonful of chopped onion, one of
chopped parsley and one of chopped
celery or of dried celery leaves. Sprin

Salt and pepper both sides of the sal
mon slices and lay them in the pan.

THE DEMAND FOR AMUSE
Man living in primitive times
was in direct contact with na
ture. He raised his own food,
made his own clothes and built
his own house. He had many
chances of varying his occu
pation throughout the day. All
his work was educational. He
had the stimulus of seeing a
piece of work begun and ended
and of enjoying the fruits there
of. All this is in marked con
trast with the life of the average
factory worker. All those quali
ties which one admires most in
a man are deadened when he is
compelled to stand day after day
and week after week before a
huge machine of which he be
comes but a part.
It is during leisure rather than
during work time that character
is formed. The basis of char
acter is the Will, and at no time
does this function of the mind
have so free a scope as during
recreation. It is then that ail re
straint is removed and we do as
we will. The excellent effect of
recreation on character is seen in
children at play. Often for the
first time they learn the meaning
of self restraint. They learn the
significance of co-operation and
group action in those games re
quiring team work. At play the
cheat is quickly discovered and
punished with ostracism by his
fellows. Such object lessons in
the fundamentals of morality are
invaluable in the normal devel
opment of any child. After all,
character is acquired from the
environment and not from the
blood. Amusement is gaining
recognition as a force as potent
as formal instruction.—Frank D.

selling each outlined block of it as

squares were retained on which to

industries, population at different
dates and the names of county officers
at the time, and the remainder were
sold for advertising.
In most cases the advertising was
done by forming the letters in the top

the advertisers furnished aluminium
letters and numerals about three inches
high. Although the sidewalk has now
been laid for some time, the outlines of
the letters are said to be as when tirst
