There Is no defence offered for the
extensile privilege!! created by the
tariff p re fei elites through the Itcpub
Menu party and the favors to the
privileged classes nnd corporations.
While wealth has' accumulated under
these piefeieticcs, u fair held and no
favor has been denied to tho musses.
We cannot expect remedies from
men high lu otllco who lu their entire
life work have beeu associates and
participants with the favored class.
Mr. ltooseclt during his entire career
in politics and as tlie head of his

In the seven and one-half years of his

Free From Evil Associations.
In Mi. Wilson and his associate, the
caudldate lor vice president, wo have
two men who have bad no associations
with thu privileged class, who have
never been In a position to grant or
accept floors or to participate lu uuy
measure that could possibly relate, to
their personal welfare or Increaso their
Incomes. In tho respectlvo professions
that these two gentlemen have occu
pied they tune been day laborers,
working at their desks as many hours
as tho wurkmuu who Is Industrious
and faithful to 'his task.
The ery fact that they have been
selected ns candidates for, the ottlee of
president and vice president of these
United States is uu Illustration of one
of the great hoasU of tho American
people that tlie man who Is faithful to
"Ills trust, honest In his work, fearless
ami courageous lu bis opinions, will In

Teaching Girls to Cook.
Although cookbooks come In rapid
6ticccssioii-so fast, indeed, that it
would tal.e a good sized library to
houso them Instead of the modest little

erntuic of tlie culslue tlie require
menu of thu child cook have beet
One of tho most popular features of
the public school exhibitions held each
year Is the demonstration by the little
girl cooks from the cooklng'cinsscs.
The leading chefs of thu day are luvn
rlably to be found In the front ranks
of the onlookers on these occasions nnd
aro loud lu their admiration of the lit
tle girls' skill nnd resourcefulness.
Not tlie least plcnslng feature of
theso displays Is the evident delight of
the children In their work. Yorkshire
puddings arc whisked with a will, pas
try Is proudly rolled out on the floured
board and the nicely browned meat
taken out of the oven with a grand
flotiilsh that arouses the envy of every
other child lu the room.
Neatly every little girl longs to cook
something all by heiiolf, If It Is only
candy or chestnuts over tbe nursery
lire, and too often those responsible for
their enre. nfraid of burned lingers and
spoiled frocks, postpone tho first conk-
cry lesson until tho girl has her tlmo
fully taken up with tho many Interests
that have been opened out to the mod
eru schoolgirl nud no longer wants to
learn how to cook. .
How the llttlo girl may take the llrst
steps In the art of good cooking Is told
simply nnd clearly lu language that
could bo understood by every child.
Reading to the Little One.
Sometimes rend to the children, in
that lull before bedtime, n few verses
or n short poem from some classic that

far as possible with good pictures,

And sunny summits old In story,

The Man of the House.
"I was left alone for a tlmo with my
two boys aged live and three nnd un
til then I had never realized Just what
nn lmxrtiint factor their father bad
been In their government." said a fond
parent. "I had uover bellev'ed lu cor
poral punishment, nud now thnt the
responsibility fell entirely upon mo 1
set myself the task of llmllng n better
method After several failures 1 tried
this and found it most effective. I had
often told the older boy that when his
father was avvny lie uiust be the 'man
of the house.' Now, I wrote upon a
paper the name of each boy and pinned
the paper upon the wall. I explained
to tlieiu carefully that whenever they
were naughty I would put n black
mark after their names and whenever
they went espclally obedient or help
ful I would put down a 'round ring.'
Then at tlv end of the day we com
pared the two. and the one with tho
best record was the 'man of the house
'.he next day.
"The 'man of the house' was allowed
lo sit at his father's place and serve
the meals. Whenever there were no
black marks uu the day's record 1 gave
them a prlre. They entered Into the
little pi u ie with great enthusiasm. It
really taker, so little to Interest a child
If one goes about It In the right way!"
Pillow Slips For the Baby.
Tlio desire of every mother's heart Is
to have protty things for her own
baby, no matter whether she has only
one or tho clothes are being prepared
for the fourth arrival.
In the matter of pillow slips the
fancy runs to small ones, having a de
sign embroidered in the corner. This
may consist simply of tho llttlo one's

about It, or a inoio ornamental spray
or small buds, leaves ami blossoms;
