The ",'Full iew" iiiI. as vtp fr&ve said bpfintyjjmj icly equips trains with
sufficient help to protect the passengers. The additional cost is insignificant
when compared to the lives that this law would save.
Men who vote against this measure simply approve unnecessary acci
d nts that maim and kill and. invite the railroads to become more reckless
than they have been heretofore. Therefore, vote for the "Full Crew" bill!
A VANISHED PARTY.
The election Tuesday proved that the Progressive party has vanished and
tiiat the great masses that made it a tremendous force two years ago have
slurried to their former faiths. But the death of this organization means
more than the mere fact that the men who separated in 11)12 have been united;
it substantiates the contention that a party conceived in revenge and born
a hero worshipper cannot long endure.
Had Tho-dore Roosevelt been nominated for President in 1012 instead of
Teft, there would have been no Bull Moose party. There can be no doubt
that Vr. Roosevelt has been a remarkable man, and the vote he polled as the
Lead of the Progressive party was without parallel, but it has since been
proven that the people cowtowed to a hero instead of voting for a party or
ti:e policies for which the party stood.
Parties arc necessary and their platforms are the life of the parties, and
r.ext to these is the candidate. If he sheds a lustre that eclipses his party
end makes people forget what that party stands for, then the whole combin
ation become a political spasm, which, like the summer shower, sweeps over
i iul is soon forgotten.
Theodore Roosevelt was bigger than his party and the policies it ad
vocated. Therefore, when Mr. Roosevelt ceased to be a candidate, the Pro
gressive party quickly went to pieces. It is doubtful whether the Bull Moose
will ever put anotner ticket in the field. They expected little this year and
they got less. It has been no more substantial than the Populist party was,
and has proved as fickle as the inane teachings of Bryan in 1S96. Free Silver
came like the March lion and vanished like the lamb. Theodore Roosevelt
thought he was a Goliath, but he has found himself to be only an ex-champion
v!u ctiuidn't ' come back." That is why the Progressive party is dead.
THE FOREIGN LEGION AT THE FRONT.
Every once in a while we read in the dispatches from the scene of war
that the "foreign legion a-quitted itself with credit." That is the most
peculiar military organization in the world. It is composed almost entirely
of soldiers of fortune, of men who care not what the righting is about, so
long as the fighting is going on.
And it also has in its membership those who "left their country for their
country's good;" the outcasts and fugitives of all the nations of the earth.
In that 'organization you will find bankrupt German officers, renegade Ameri
cans, discredited Austrians, cashiered Englishmen and South Americans who
have been deposed through revolution or otherwise. No questions are asked
ai to a man's nart when he presents himself for enlistment in the Foreign
Legion. All that is necessary is that he shall be physically sound.
The Foreign Legion originated with Napoleon. At that time Russia was
engaged in the extinguishment of Foland and the Polish exiles enlisted under
the banners of France. Seeing in this step the possibilities of an efficient
fighting force, Napoleon invited all the Viown-and-out fighters to enlist, and
they did so. In order that the native French soldiers might not feel the
humiliation of association with the offscourings of the world, Napoleon made
of the Foreign Legion an independent fighting force, no natives being per
l .ittcd t,o enlist, although the Legion has always beeh officered by men from
the schools at Si. Cyr. '
In Africa especially the Legion has made history. In the Franco-German
v ar of 1870-71 the Legion was the only really, important French command
which stood fast. And in the tremendous .fighting which is going on in Bel
gium, today, the Legion "is ia the front, of it, always in the front of it, just
v. here it has .ever been. '. .
When it is considered that these men are not fighting for decorations,
that ..they are not fighting for glory, but are engaged, most of themt in a
desperate attempt to forget be past, to.ury the recollection of "old, unhappy
faj-caT. things,', that they have nothing, to lose, ".and !inaqy vof them but little to
' f a.ru.tjhc achievements of the Legion are accounted for. About ail they can
hope for now is "to" finish in style for .the ends of thVea'fth to view," and they
r re doing that, grandly doing that, every one of them.

The Wednesday club had a very in
teresting meeting this week at the
Normal, with Mrs. E. A. Hayden as
the leader of the day.
The subject of the program was,
"Eugenics and Euthenics." Mrs. R.
B. Oliver and Mrs. R. J. Wright not
being able to be present, just two
papers were read. Mrs. L. B. Houck
gave a splendid talk on "Eugenics and
Its Relation to Social Reform." In
her paper she spoke of the terrible
diseases all over the country and of
the great trouble they leave in their
wake; and dwelt extensively upon the
causes of these conditions, not treat
ing the subject in a personal way, but
on a large scale. She particularly
brought out the point that persons
unfit, should not be permitted to mar
ry, and if su h were the laws of the
country, much suffering and unhappi
ness would be done away with.
Another point Mrs. Houck dwelt on
was the attention called to the par
ents of girls of today, whom she re
marked, thought more of the financial
standing of the husband of their
daughters than of their physical con
ditions. , - ;
The next paper was read by Mrs.
Walter Cobb, who took as her theme
"The Influence of Environment on the
Y'oung Child." She said she thought
that environment played the greatest
part in the development of the child
and that while most people said,
"Like Father, Like Son." her view was
"As Father Lives So Lives His Son."
Another excellent view Mrs. Cobb
took on this subject was that children
snoum be planned for, just as one con
sults an architect on the plans of con
structing a house, etc. She said that
she thought that everyone should have
an adequate, separate knowledge of
hygene, that is knowing how to care
for the sick, and this should not be
dictated by love but by the best med
ical thought on the subject.
Mrs. Cobb considered the three
prime factors in the rearing of the
child, sleep, food, tranquility, and add
ed to these, might be, exercise, bath
ing and airing. Exercise, she said,
particularly after the bath is an es
sential part of the daily treatment of
the young. The parents should con
trol the body and mind of their chil
dren. It is not so much by what their
ancestors did, or the parents them
selves did, but the present home life
and influence given the child that
makes it what it is. Children cannot
have too much mothering says Mrs.
Cobb, which is an excellent point well
brought out. They should inspire the
confidence of their offspring, and in
this manner use their good influence
to regulate their lives. The parents
now days wait upon their children too
much; and there seems to be a steady
falling off in parental authority. It
is not, may I go Mother? but we are
going Mother, making all the arrange
ments, then telling the parents.
One interesting point Mrs. Cobb spoke
of was the "Child of Institutions."
How the daily routine cf such places
causes the feeling of difference among
the children, from those having the
home care and training. She applaud
ed the suggestion of a prominent wom
an who said that children could re
ceive a more home-like training
should they be given in charge of a
competent woman, say ten or twelve
under each nurse, who would take an
interest in each child as though they
were her own, and instill in them that
respect and mother love, so void in
the child of an institution.
Mrs. Cobb then gave several splen
did examples, which closed her number
on the program.
Both Mrs. Houck's paper and that
of Mrs. Cobb, were so well written
and interesting, that a motion was
made by Mrs. A. H. Hinchey that they
be sent to the Reciprocity Club, and
the Young Mothers' Club for publica
