The attendance upon the Men's Bi

a very large enrollment. The meet

Now that the State campaign has already had two months of trial the peo
ple are in a better position to judge as to the merits of the different candidates
aspiring to that high office of Governor of our Commonwealth. In reading
the different papers wherein certain candidates' interests are being espoused,
we read with much regret that the principal attacks upon Mr. Michel are along
the lines that he is not a speech-maker, thus being unfit to aspire to that high
position. We do not believe it is necessary for a man to be a fine public
speaker in order to have executive ability. While it is true that Dr. Aswell
is gifted along this line, it is not a guarantee of being possessed of executive
ability, and we may say of Mr. Michel that because he is not a public speaker
is no reason why he could not guide this State as its Governor as well as one
who is fluent and gifted with eloquence so seldom found in men possessing
all the virtues. One of the best indorsements that Mr. Michel has received
so far in his candidacy is that of W. B. Thompson. Mr. Thompson's letter,
which was made public a few days ago, in which he pulled the T.-D. over the
gratings a few times, will have the effect of changing the views of a great
many of those who were not favorably inclined toward Mr. Michel. That the
business interests in the city of New Orleans, as well as throughout the State.
are with Mr. Michel, is a conclusion already reached, not only by the supporters
of Mr. Michel, but by the supporters of the opponents as well. The position
of Governor of a State does not carry with it a requirement that he be a pub
lic speaker. Some of our Congressmen who have won national fame in our
Legislature never made a speech upon the floor of the House. It is usually
work that counts, and the friends of Mr. Michel believe that he is the right
man for the place. As Secretary of State he has shown his executive ability,
and it does not require eloquence to do the work.
When the next meeting of the Algiers Improvement Association is held
that body should take up the present franchise of the Southern Improvement
and Ferry Company, and see to it that the Algiers people are given exactly
what the franchise calls for in consideration of the ferry tax that is placed
upon us for living on this side of the river. That the ferry company is violat
ing its franchise is a positive fact, and they will continue to do so unless our
citizens here call a halt and demand that they operate according-to the terms
and conditions through which they are privileged to operate. At the last
meeting of the Algiers Improvement Association Jules Bodenger made a verbal
report to the association, he having been appointed a committee of one to r i
quest of the Southern Improvement and Ferry Vompany the placing of a shed
or other protection over the floating pontoons. Mr. Bodenger's report to the
association was to the effect that he had interviewed the management and that
they would submit the request to their engineers, and if found practicable
they would order them installed. It is very nice of the ferry company to
be so generous to us, but after reading their franchise we find that this is one
of the provisions by which they are allowed to opearte. It has been several
years now since the new corporation has taken over the ferries, and no change
along this line has been made. There are several other provisions of the
franchise that do not stack up exactly with the requirements, and it is for
the Algiers Improvement Asociation to point out these things and have them
remedied. The dry sweeping of the boats, especially during the morning hours
when many employes are going to their work, continues. We have called at
tention in our editorials on several occasions to the leaky condition of the
boats in heavy rains, to the poorly lighted ferry houses, and especially to
the absence of lights in the toilets after certain hours.
After the first of January, 1912, we are to ,have a ten-minute schedule
from 6 o'clock in the morning to 12 o'clock at night. This is one of the,most
important parts of the franchise that we should see to. Later the Herald will
publish excerpts from the franchise of the Southern Improvement and Ferry
Company, so that our readers may familiarize themselves with the conditions
under which they are permitted the monopoly they now enjoy.

He Took Her
For a Thief
Copyright by American Press Asso
clation. 1911.
Perry Atkinson. immaculately dressed
and with a pearl stickpin in his cravat.
was waiting on the platform of a sea
side station at the height of the sum
mer season. A number of persons were
there, some to receive friends, some to
see friends of. all waiting for a train.
When it rolled up to the station At
kinson craned his neck with the rest.
like a turkey gobbler bunting for some
favorable point to fly over a fence.
While thus looking up he suddenly
felt two arms thrown around his neck
and a pair of lips pressed to his.
Now. at this especial resort, situated
not far from a large city, were many
different classes of persons, from the
highest to the lowest. When Atkinson
felt himself in the embrace of a wo
man who was a stranger to him the
first explanation of the situation that
entered his head was that it was a
game to relieve him of his money.
Disengaging himself as quickly as pos
sible, he clapped his band to his hip.
where he kept his pocketbook. He
was relieved to find the wallet there.
Then he Instinctively felt for his pearl
scarfpin, and it was gone!
By this time the woman who had
embraced him-a girl of twenty-was
standing looking at him with a puz
sled expression which, as she gazed.
developed into one of borror.
"I greatly fear." she stammered.
"that i have made a mistake."
"You certainly have made a mistake
If you take me for a 'fiat.' You hand
out my stickpin mighty quick or I'll
call the police."
At this the girl put on an expression
to describe which language is inade
quate. Her face was scarlet; her eyes
dashed alternate indignation and fear.
Then suddenly Atkinson made a dive
for her skirt, where be saw his scarf
pin banging, and caught it as it was
about to fall to the ground. Putting it
in its proper place, be gave the girl a
final glance and was about to turn
away when she said:
"Do you mean to tell me that you
are not Ben Willard."
"I dtn't know the gentleman."
"'You are the Image of him," the girl
added. ready to burst into tears.
Atkinson gave her another look as if
undecided whether to apologize or say
something harsh, then walked away
very much disgruntled. While he had
been thus engaged a friend he had
come to the station to receive bad es
caped him. As he walked to the sum
mer residence where he was staying
bhe began to see the episode in its true
proportions and to become conscious
of having made a guy of himself. Be
fore the day was over he regretted not
having apologized to the girl and long
ed for an opportunity to undo what he
had done.
The next time Mr. Atkinson met the
young lady whom he had mistaken for
a thief be was dancing the cotillion
at one of the "cottages." A line of
ladies was advancing toward a line
of gentlemen, and as the lines met the
first gentleman whirled away with the
first lady. in the coming line of ladies
Atkinsoa suddenly espied the heroine
of the stickpin. This in itself was em
barrassing, but when be counted the
men ahead of him and the ladies
ahead of the girl in question and dis
covered that she would tall to him for
a partner his heart sank down into the
beels of his patent leather boots.
When the couples ahead of them
were reduced to three Atkinson saw
the girl's eyes ired apoa him and
shuddered. He saw by her expression
that she was about to take her re
venge. When all tbose who had pre
ceded them bhad sailed away in the
dance and they stood face to face the
girl turned on bher bheel. presenting her
back to Atkinso n sight of all pree
eat, and marched out of the room.
Atkinson made way for the man
next behind him, wishing that some of
those standing about would shoot him.
He made hbls exit through a door oppo
sitte the one by whleb the young lady
had passed out and left the house.
The rest of the evening was given
up by those who were not dancing to a
discusion of what Atkisono. who was
known to e a gentleman and a favor
it. socially, had done to draw forth an
expression of sueb coatempt.

When the Japanese were besieging
Port Arthur there were a number of
women and children shut up in the
fortress. Singularly enough, they were
there, the women by their own con
sent and the children by the consent
of their parents. Discipline was very
lax among the Russians, and a number
of the officers preferred to have their
families with them to being separat
ed from them. General Stoessel.
the Russian commander, s't the exam
ple by having his own wife in iort
Arthur, so it was not remarkable that
others followed suit. It is said that a
number of children during the siege
were playing about in the fortress and
sometimes among the guns on the ram
parts, exposed to shot and shell. But
the enlisted men were not allowed to
have wives or children with them.
Sergeant Boris Tomsky was a gun
ner of renown. He was in charge of
one of the big guns on Two Hundred
and Three Meter hill and did more
damage to the Japanese with his
piece than any gunner in the Russian
With Tomsaky was a young sharp
shooter named Alexis Petroff, a dead
shot, who did most of the rifle work.

ing guns that were doing especial dam
While the sergeant was fring im
mense balls from his pet cannon in an
effort to silence some Japanese gun
that if left alone would surely make
an important breach. Petroff would be
picking off one by one the gunners that
were directing the firing.
Petroff was a mere boy. Not a hair
had shown itself on his face, not even
a bit of down. That on his head was
of the lightest of the light northern
hue, while his eyes were a correspond
ing azure. He seemed very much at
tacbed to the big man who directed the
big gun, with his shocky hair and
beard and fierce mustachios. Indeed,
each seemed fitted for his especial
work. Tomsaky to send forth the great
cannon balls, weighing a couple of hun
dred pounds, Petroff to dispatch the
thin leaden bullets.
Tomsky kept on dismounting guns
and doing other damage to the Japa
nese until he became famed among his
comrades for the most useful single
man in the Russian army. They used
to say. "It all our generals could be
turned into Tomsky gunners the Japa
nese would never take Port Arthur."
But at last the Japs got on to the
fact that this wholesale destruction of
life and ordnance was due to one man,
and they were not long in locating the
big gunner on Two Hundred and Three
Meter hill. Then they called for one
of the best sharpshooters in the army
and, pointing out Tomsky to him, or
dered the Jap to eliminate the big Rus
sian. Once the gunner was located
and a sharpshooter especially detailed
to kill him he had not long to live. It
happened that after be was pointed
out be did not show himself for some
time, but as soon as he did be received
a bullet in his forehead that finished
his career.
The grief of his assistant at his loss
was touching to see. Petroff was af
fected to tears. The Russian peasant
soldiers, who were more like cattle than
men. could not understand how a man
could weep. But presently Petroff's
feelings cbanged from grief to revenge.
His -comrades could understand that,
Sand as they saw Petroff take up hbls
rifle and bug it as if it were a dear
child they looked at one another as it
to say:
"Now Petro is a man again; he
will make the little monkeys pay for
killing the big sergeant."
From that time Petront was always
behind the ramparts watching through
a porthole for some Japanese to show
himself. When one did so but ain
stant would elapse before he would
pitch forward or backward, and It
wouald be discovered by his compan
Sones that he had either been killed or
mortally wounded.
Every time Petror killed a Japanees
he would punch a hole i his cap. A
the iege went on the holes became
so numerous tlat there was scarcely
room enough for them all In time
they pased the bhIred mark. But
this did not satist the eaoung maruke
