Rush That Carline
Now for a speedy extension of the municipal ear line. The legislature
lias passed the hill we asked, 'granting authority for the city to build beyond
its limits, money is available —and the need is urgent.
A great shipyards is nisliiug work on its site and in not many weeks
will he laying down keels of large vessels. Other industries will spring up on
tbe tideflats before we know it. Good transportation to the business cen
ter is | necessity.
Let there be no quibbling over terms. The people will expect the various
parties to get together, iron out any differences that may develop, and get
action. Those involved arc Hie city commissioners, the county commission
ers, the street railway company and, to a lesser degree, the steam roads.
• An agreement similar to that under which the T. R, &P. Co. is now oper
ating the tideflats line must be agreed upon. A viaduct must he built
across the Milwaukee property. Eleventh street must be filled and souk,
form of protection on the bay side be constructed. A division of the expense
of this undertaking must be reached.
These problem mean that considerable red tape must be unwound, but
if everybody concerned gets at the unwinding in an amiahle, public-first
spirit, a complete solution can be reached in a short time, and work started.
That is the important thing, to make a beginning of actual construction.
The line must be extended with all possible speed. Especially if war
should come, in that event it would be not only a civic necessity but a pat
riotic duty. With war so near, it is virtually that now.
'' Trust thyself.'' Every heart vibrates to that iron
String. Accept the place the Divine Providence has
found for you, the society of your contemporaries, the
connection of events. Great men have always done
»o, and confided themselves childlike to the genius of
their age; betraying their perception that the Eternal)
was stirring at their heart, working through their,
hands, predominating in all their being. And we arc
now men, and must accept in the highest spirit the 1
game transcendent destiny; and not pinched in a cor
ncr, not cowards fleeing before a revolution, but re
deemers and benefactors, pious aspirants to be noble
clay plastic under the Almighty effort, let us advance
and advance on chaos and the dark.—Emerson.
The freedom of the seas will now be enjoyed by ice
bergs and fish.—Brooklyn Eagle.
And now they're trying hard to bribe poor old
China to enter the war.
Here's the Ticket
Congress knows exactly what to do about the food short
age. Trust those deep rouHnners and thoughtful statesmen to
meet such an emergency, every time.
Some folk think there .should he a better distribution of
food supplies, some think the speculators should be routed and
the monopolies broken up.
The statesmen know better.
What Is really wanted to do the trick and make all things
right with us is an investigation.
You bet. With a report handed down ln 1919, and printed
in 11 nice volumes, to be had of your congressman.
Here, Indood. Ik the real thing at last. The peoplo that are
rioting for food say they are iMMgry, Well, rats and mice eat
books and seem to find them a tasty and attractive diet. Why
should not human beings?
There must he nutriment in paper and bindings. At least,
as much nutriment as in some of tho economy bills of faro that
various high brows are now recommending to the poor.

A Los Angeles wife who's after another man de
clares she's not insane but just in love. It's sure the

The Real Burden
If it were not for the non-resistors in the world there would
be no autocracy and no autocrats.
If It were not for the autocracies and autocrats there would
have been no war.
If It were not for the paace-at-any-prlcers of England from
19or. to 1914, that country would never have been caught with
out a tool in the house and tbe war would have been over long
If it were not. for the American doughfaces there would
have been no mistake in (.ermany about the temper and will of
the lulled States.
Pacifists are the complement of absolutism and tha hand
maids of disaster. Weakness does mora actual harm than de
Sane men that think do not like war nor want it. They
look for a time wheu it shall be eliminated from human affairs.
But they know It will not be and cannot be so long as weakness,
timidity, selfishness and fetich worship enable autocracy to per
sist in a world that should have long ago outgrown tt.
Instead of such men as the |iea<e-at-any-pricers putting an
end to war, it ls such men that prolong it and make it inevitable.
The spider is an excellent guide to the weather. Not
only is he extremely sensitive to the state of the at
mosphere, but he takes a keen interest in the habits
of flying insects. He knows that these do not come
out in the wet. When, therefore, he is "resting,"
you may be certain that he is expecting rain. But
should he be busy constructing a new web it is a sign
that he is looking forward to a fine spell.
Men show their character in nothing more clearly
than by what they think laughable.—Goethe.

GOOD FORM HINTS
BY CYNTHIA GREY
A gentleman never precedes a
woman through a door either at
home or ln society.
He must, however, step in
front of her to open a closed
door; then he holds the door
while she passes through and
closes It after her.
The man holds a revolving door
while the woman enters a section,
follows her through, and takes
care that she is safely released.

HEA-TY DEPENDS ON ONE'S STATE OP MIND
"Yon hare to break your leg, Margie, to know how perfectly
charming people are," aald Mollie to me last evening.
"Have you just found that out, Mollie T I knew it long ago
when I waa HI so long. Moat people are thoughtless but not unklnl.
What brought this home to you, dear?"
"One of the pretty Incidents that make life worth living," she
answered. "You know, lam so tired of being taken care of that thla
morning I determined to go and flock by myself. I knew if I went
out on the board walk a dozen of my acquaintances, let alone you,
Margie, would insist upon going with me.
"So I picked up my cane, walked to the side door ot the hotel
and asked the door man to call me a taxi. I waited quite a while and
was getting rather impatient, for a number of people as well as my
self were waiting for cars. I was very nervous about getting in and
out of the taxi, as you know how long it takes to drag yourself up
by main strength.
"Finally, a car drove up and I atepped forward to take it when
a woman pushed me aside and said, 'Just a moment, please,' and
quietly stepped into her car. Another woman and a little boy fol
"It la unnecessary to nay I was perfectly furious. I turned to
the starter and said, 'Well, I like that.'
"The doorman looked uncomfortable and muttered something
which I did not catch. Just then the wqman said a few words to her
chauffeur who was about to start her cat. He stopped and she bent
forward to speak to me. 'I don't think you understand,' she said,
'this is a private car. I know just how you feel and if I can take
you anywhere I will be very glad to do so.'
"Then It was my turn to apologize, Margie, and I said I could
not think of taking up her time. But she insisted, saying she knew
I had mistaken the car for a taxi and that she would bo only to«

"I saw that I was delaying traffic and so I got Into the car,
Then for the first time she saw that 1 was lame and she was sweeter
" 'I think if I had known you were lame, she said, I would hava
said nothing but let you get into the car.' _______ m
"I told her it was the first time I had been out alone and that I
was rather nervous and excited and so did not realize that her beau
tiful Packard limousine was not a taxi.
"She took me down where I waited to do some shopping and I
bade them goodbye with the assurance that as I could never hope to
repay her, all 1 could do was some time to pass this little courtesy
on to someone else.
"And I am going to be mighty sure that I do that, Margie, for
that little act will be one of my pleasantest memories for all time.
You see, little book, what a brick Mollie is. From a most
thoughtless girl she has grown into the most thoughtful of women.
I have never known her to think a pleasant thing about one of her
friends that she has not in some way contrived to tell them.
Because she does this so often she is many times misunder

not mean all the nice things she says about people."
But Mollie says. "It is just as easy to think nice things as ugly
