Roosevelt Drops the Subject
Has anybody been following Rooskvklt's Southern
Speeches? Don't neglect them.- They are one of the. best
parts of tho show weare now witnessing and which, with
apologies to HooAiiir, should be styled "The Demagogue's
Progress." . - - : -
Tho striking thing about these addresses to the Sou tliei.r- "
ners has been what was left but of them to wit, the negro.
Of course everybody remembers the bid for the South "with '
which the Oolonol started-bis campaign. It ,was a promise
to make his new party in that quarter strictly a white "'man's
party. There has been no change in this programme, aud
yet, srrangely enough, in his face-to-face appeals to.Southem
white- peoplo the Oplonel has hardly alluded 'to itj .;Why?.. '
There are two reasons. a
Tq find oue of thorn, read, the, Southern newspapers or
talk with an observant Southerner. The truth is Southern
white people nover rose tb'tlio bait "at all. They never "even
nibbled at it. The best proof is that tho Southern JRooskvklt
men themselves, whether they call themrelves Progressive
Republicans or out-and-out Bull-Moosers, Have quit .talking
about it. They promptly found that, it simply didn't work.
It had merely eiven people another reason for distrusting
Roosevkw. The real job of Rooseselt's followers in the"
South is" precisely what it is elsewhere. It is the job of try
ing to make people behove in his sincerity.
That indicates tho other ;reason why Rooseaklt himself
has not been discussing his new plan with tho colored broth
or. If it has not helped him in the South, it has, positively
and substantially weakened him fn the North and he knows
it. Unhappily, thore are conscientious and honorable people
in his motley followiug, and not a few of them are of the
anti-slavery strain. Such people have not approved, or pre
tended to approve, his sudden desertion of the Southern ne
gro after, all his loud declaration of friendship for them,
Neither could they, preceive the slightest basis in reason, b
morals for his distinctions between Southern negroes -and
Northern negroes, There is none The only basis s, for that
distinction was and is political. " ,''. "
The maneuver has failed failed completely and1 i$no
miniously. It is the worst kind of failure, for his act is not
bitterly denounced, jt is not raged at, it is laughed . at.-v :A ;
demagogue can thrive' on denunciation and hatred, but '.ridi
cule and indifference.are fatal. ; .,&"
There is some cooler left in Kansas yet. Mr. Harlan
said in Topeka: '"'.., ' '" t'

FIRST SALT WATER A3$
Hank wis from the upper middle
section of the state, where tho streams
are small and run oneway alt th.a
time. Until tho day of this adventure
lie had never seen a bigger body of
water than a millpoud, nor had he
ever caught a fish that was as large
as his hand.
Scale flab, In Hank's native section
were about as rare aa gold coins on a
church contribution plate. The stand
ard fish was a ltttlo "finger" eat, black
and despicable in the purview of the
coast fisherman; but Hank and bis
friends" back home thought catching
them was rare sport, and that tbey
were really "game" fish.
Hank was a fisherman at .heart.
When be ceme to the city to "take a
position" la one of the Btores he con
tinually bragged about how be used to
"yank 'em out' and, what fine ones
they were. The boys stood Hank's
palaver for a time, until tbey got tired
of it, and then they resolved to show
him what real "fishing" was like. That
is bow.lt carao about that a party was
made up to go for channel bass off
Bloody Point, with Hank as tho guest
Conditions apparently favorable for
bass. Wind, weather and tide were
precisely right, and tho bait was flna
and fresh enough to tempt the appe
tite of a fisherman, much less a flab.
But there was noting doing in the line'
of scalo fish. Channel catfish and'
gaff-topsails and stlngarees there,'
were In plenty, but never the sign'
of a scalo. In half an hour the bot
jom or mo boat was covered with cats,
and stjngarees. , TJa'ually these dej

Robbiris got a strilfo,- arid it was a
Tisnvy. one. ' Now, Robblns'ls a hand-

ins lifs flsh. ' Ho wants to see the
quarry landed In the. shortest possible'
space of time. "What's the use
foolln'," says Robblns; "you porno
after the flBh; why not get'!e"m and
WhenyRobblns got the strike, there
fore, tho line came. Inland, over hand,'
and in a. jiffy a great floundering
shapo of-J3llver and drab, long as a
man's body, and half his legs, was
pounding on the gunwale and beating
tho green water Into a heavy show
er that fell 'over tho whole boat's
Hank was electrified. With a cry
like a wild Indian, ho sprang from his
scat upon the thwart, grabbed tho big'
fish around the.. throat, lifted it in
board and went down with it among
the catfish and sUngarees.
The balance of tho company looked
on in literal fear and trembling. There
were no less than forty of. the sea
devils tof tho poisonous spines in ttio,
bottom of the boat, and there was that
blithering idiot . from tho millponds
writhing and wrestling and I twisting
with a forty-pound sea bass right in
tho midst of them! It seemed ineyita
bio that Hank muBt bo "finned," but
the more the men. shouted to him the
wilder Hank raved in his delirium of
tho kill. "He's plumb crazy," said
Little Finky, the skipper.
As quickly as he could' manago it
without sticking Hank with the knife
Bobbins cut tho flsb's throat. In two
minutes more it was still.
Then Hank got up. He was as
white as a ghost. Therd was not tho
color of blood in his lips. His cheeks
were like chalk, his eyes were glassy
and his knees were shaking. Totter
ing astern, he collapsed, with bead
and arms over the guaway.
"I, knowed it," sajd Little Pinky f
"he's got it good and hard, la a dozen
places; the blamed eejltt" Serves him
right Wbat'je bring a millponner on
salt water isrj-anyhow?"
"Aw, cut that," growled Bobbins.
"Can't you see tho man's In great
suffering? Get the peroxide wbllo we
and the. other boys strip his clothes
off and find the punctures.''
No sooner said than done. The
strippers had. got almost down to na
ture when Hank revived enough to
say in a weak voice:
"Leave mo alone, you dang fools. I,
ain't bit nor stunjp nor nothln'; JuBt
swallowed my chaw of tobacco."
And that was the size of It. The
Providence, that protects little chil
drea and Imbeciles and, drunken men
had steered that "mljlponner" safely
and unscathed through what appeared
to be a hopeless array of catfish and
stingaree-rBpInea while he 'wrestled
with the' big bass. '
The first appearance, in an English
divorce court, of- the Chinese form of
oath by breaklngi a. saucer recalls oth
er quaint forms of swearing,
In Assam the oath is taken by stand
ing within a rope circle, to imply a
wish to rot as the rope does if the
swearer does not tell the truth. In
lawsuits' between Russians .and the
Ostiaks of Siberia a bear's head is
brought into court, and. the Ostlak,
making the gesture of eating, calls
on the bear to devour him if he lies.
There are tribes of India that swear
by the head of a tiger, while ethers'
chop a dog in two as emblematic of
the fate of the perjurer.' But the sim
plest method is that of the Quaker,
who swears not at all, but just tells
What he thinks.
