THE WEARING OF LABELS
Chivalry has taken a new lease on life at St.
Louis, where the men who, want to show their
gallantry have organized a blue button brigade.
The wearers of those badges thereby prove they
are gentlemen to the extent of giving up their
car seats to any woman, be she old or young,
protty or but all women are pretty.
St. Louis papers are boasting of the society
and flaunting in the faces of other cities the high
standard of manhood set by the members. The
example is a good one. More power to St. Louis
and its nobility among the gentry.
Now arises a solemn thought. Why limit the
good work of the button to St. Louis and to the
street car Why not let it branch out into all
walks of life and scatter sunshine all along the
way? The fool killer could more easily detect
his legitimate prey, although now in many cases
remissness is shown where the evidence is abso

definitely, or she who never keeps an engage
ment, might wear a small clock from which tlie
hands have been removed. The woman who con
vinces herself slip is not a gossip would do well
to wear a beautiful engraved button with a set
of tightly closed lips embossed thereon.
A couple of high-balls on a coat lapel would in
dicate that the wearer was in the habit of saying
"What'll y have?" The St. Louis nian who
gave up his seat in the car would be better iden
tified by wering a largo tin badge showing him
self in a street car bounding out of his seat, with
a lady standing beside him demurely compla
cent. The man who says the wrong thing at
the wrong time would have no difficulty in get
ting a proper emblem showing himself with his
mouth open and his foot in it.
.Those who whistle "Bedelia" and similar
classics could be reminded of their peace-disturbing
propensities by a gag which, more prop
erly, could be worn over the mouth. In addi

victims to put distance between themselves and

INSURANCE AGAINST IDLENESS
Business is business, yet business is not with
out sentiment in these days. It is still as true as
in the time of Bcclestiastes : "He that taketh
away his neighbor's living slaycth him and he
that def raudeth the laborer of his hire is a blood
shedder." Thus a switchman on a railway in
Texas', who was loyal to Mr. Carnegie in his
early days, has just received $-10,000 as a token
of the grateful remembrance of the Laird of
Skibo. The Westinghouse company in Pitts
burg is distributing thousands of dollars in bo
nuses to employes who were faithful during the
recent days of its adversity. A citizen of New
England hurried across the continent-ironi Se
attle to attend the funeral of an old domestic
servant. These are instances of that which
makes the whole world kin.
Now the cry of the unenmloved. which dis
tresses modern industrial life, is to be answered
in England by legislation nrovidimr insurance
. ... . ,-. . .... . .
against that disaster. The system is first to be
applied to the trades of building, shipbuilding,
and enginering, which employ approximately
one-third of the wage earners in England.
State, employer and employe will each contrib
ute 5 cents a week toward the fund. The labor
exchanges will be associated with the plan. The
workless worker must accept work when found
or else show satisfactory reason for refusing. If
forced to be idle he is to receive $1.92 a week for
a maimum of twenty weeks. The attitude of the
labor unions toward this plan has not yet been
made clear. The better protection of the wage
earner is an ass6t to the employer as well as a
benefit to the employe, provided the eou'litions
are fair. But the degree of compulsion in this
system needs to be made plain.
ture prevail in Brazil. Brazil has generally been
assumed to be very nervous with regard to Ger
many's intentions, but evidently General Fonse
ca does not share the kaiser's portrait so prominently.
It is a part of the spirit of western cities
to sing lays about themselves. Spokane has a
real estate fever. A new bank building is to
be fourteen stories high, with width and depth
to correspond. Now an ordinance in the city
council would forbid the erection of any building
above sixteen stories. A local paper protests
that such an ordinance .may drive millions of dol
lars away from Spokane. But a reasonable limit
to the height of buildings is recognized as desira
ble in any city, large or small. The problem has
been bodly ignored in New York City, but the
1 conditions there are peculiar. In most cities
they are not made necessary by limitations of
area. With superficial expansion, skyscrapers
are isolated and out of harmony. Ambitious
Seattle would do well to study the unities. But
probably the danger of such excesses is more
fancied than real.
It is more than likely that if the Southern Pa
cific discovers that there is likelihood of any
person putting in a dam at San Carlos basin,
either in the present or the remote future" that
they will gladly re-survey and establish a high
line through the canyon. In fact there is at pres
ent a surveying corps doing that very work.
The Southern Pacific would be the greatest-single
gainer in the reclamation of 50,000 or 60,000
acres of farming land and Florence is making
a spectacle of itself in frothing at the mouth and
tearing its hair.
Arizonans may have been "fools for voting
down joint statehood with New Mexico," as was
charged by speakers at Albuquerque during the
president's recent visit to that city, but it seems
to have never occurred to these wise men over
the line that the defeat of jointure spelled the
defeat of statehood of any kind, and that there
may have been interests who appealed to the
patriotism of Arizonans and bade them stand
loyally by their territory for no other reason in
the world than to keep both territories out
of the union. The game was simple enough
when the astigmatism is removed. But despite
the smooth sailing of this little scheme state
hood will come to both Arizona and New Mexico
at the next session of congress.
Mr. Hitchcock has not only given full assur
ance that Arizona would bo granted statehood
at the next session; of he legislaure, but he is
backing up his claim by his works and has re
mained in the erritory to put the Arizona re-
iicans in shape J or the new order of things.
Senator Gore is said not to uelish heartily be

ple seem to think he is blind to honest principles
and good government ideas, anyway.
To stop liis neighbors cows from grazing on
his pasture a Tucson man roped four of the
animals, cut out their tongues and then-turned
them loose. It is not hard to figure out why hell
is too good for this man.
