SLAP —My son is a steeplejack.
THUD—He is, eh! What does he do —jack up steeples?
SLAP —-No, no; he climbs them.
THUD —Can't he get on the other side of them any other way?
SLAP —He doesn't get on the other side of them —he has to go to
the top of them and paint.
THUD —Gets a better landscape from there, I suppose. Does he
leave his canvas up mere when he goes to lunch?
SLAP —You've got that all mixed. He doesn't paint landscapes—
he paints the steeple.
THUD—Oh, oh! P.ut say, whatdoea he want to climb it for when
he can see more of it from down here?
SLAP —Hut he doesn't have to see much of the steeple.
THUD —Yes —and If he'd fall, we'd not see much of him.
TAFT NOT ENDORSED
approved by Taft and that It was
the result of a political trade where
by the president was to receive the
help of the New York machine at
the elections in 101".
Doesn't Endorse Administration.
"Roosevelt does not endorse tlnH
Taft administration." says the Her
ald today. "The final break came
with the selection of Sherman as
temporary chairman of the Saratoga
convention. These assurances come
from absolutely authentic sources.
There will be no further peace be
tween Sagamore Hill and Beverly.
"Those close to Roosevelt charge
that the Saratoga incident was the
result of a political deal between
Republican State Central Commit
teeman Timothy 1.. Woodruff, Wil
liam Ward, New York Republican"
national committeeman, and Vice
President Sherman on the one hand
and Taft's close advisers on the
other. By the terms of this deal.
Woodruff was to be re-elected state
chairman and Sherman temporary
chairman of the convention. Wood
ruff pledged to Taft the New York
delegation to the Republican na
tional convention in 1012 in return
for Taft's present support.
"The erstwhile president will
criticise openly no man whom he
chose as his successor In the White
House. But it would not surprise
those in close touch with Roosevelt
if the colonel finds himself in such
a position as to be forced to become
an avowed candidate for the presi
dential nomination in 1912."
The World comments as follows
on the situation: "Between Taft
and Roosevelt, who made Taft,
the re is a complete breach that ap
pears so wide that no bridge can be
thrown across it. With his eyes
open Roosevelt is said by his
frjends to have let Lloyd C. Gris
com lead him to the slaughter.
"It is understood that Roosevelt
knew at the time that he gave
Grlscom permission to present his
name as temporary chairman for
the Saratoga convention that some
N*'w York state leaders had prom
ised Taft that if he would stand by
them in the state fight this fall,
they would stand by him when it
came to a question of pledging the
delegates for the national conven
tion In 1912. This argument is said
to have so appealed to President
Taft that he expressed his appre
ciation of Woodruff's work in New
