Of course, we must have law, and the law must he

who is deeply learned in the law.

It \ really funny, when yon stop to think about it. The
law says it is legal to sell whisky, and drink whisky; hut
if you drink whisky (that is, too much) they lock you up
anil Fine you. And you pay the salaries of the men who
lock yon up and who assess the fine, as well as paying
for the whisky you drank, and paying for the making of
the law which say- it is legal to sell you the whisky, yet
puts you in jail for drinking the whisky!
Now what kind of ;t double-cross is that?
I.aw is a mighty peculiar thing!
The law- of the Illinois legislature, at this moment iv

WE AXE HAPLESS MANCHURIANS
In the Russo-Japanese war, Manchuria was the battle
Manchuria was not a party to the war, hut the inhabi
tants had their fields and houses destroyed and were them
selves killed or injured.
The Manchurians suffered grievously, no matter which
side was victorious; they lost which ever side won.
Is this not the situation of the general public in street
ear and railroad strikes? In Philadelphia a few months
ago and later in Columbus, Ohio, an entire city was tied
up by warfare between employer and employes. A large
part of Canada and some portions of this country suffered
because of strife between the (Jrand Trunk railroad and
its trainmen. The railroads and traction companies said
that their relations with their employes was a private
matter, with which the public had no concern. Yet the
noncombntants bore an awful burden. Their lives were
endangered; food supplies cut off; business interrupted—■
sometimes the entire life of a community was paralyzed.
Will the American People ever learn that they have
not only a proper hut often the chief interest in the pre
vention of industrial warfare? The payment of good
wages and observance of reasonable working hours and
conditions affect the character of service which the public
obtains every day in the year; and the prevention of war

NEW FOOD FOR THOUGHT
Over in Paris is a club answering to the name of "The
Society of Super-Gourmets," which conceives its par
ticular function to be the introduction of new dishes into
the French national diet.
For instance, the following menu was served to the
members and a few invited guests at a recent dinner;
Algerian Turtle Soup
Ragout of Boaconstrictor and Python
Fillet of African Gazelle
Omelette of Ostrich Eggs
Hearts of Date Palm Cactus Leaves
The African gazelle is said to have the flavor of land),
but is a little more tender. The boaconstrictor and python
made a particular "hit" with the ladies, but then, woman
never could resist the serpent. The rhubarb pudding was
probably added to serve as a connecting link between the
new and the old.
Now these "Super-Gourmets" may be merely another
organized association of hlamed v fools, but—
