At the outset of an argument In rela

president and vice president we mus
liew what has caused the great uprls.
jlng In the country in connection with
ur economic affairs and the adminis
tration of our government in ao far as
dt relates to that subject
There is no defence offered for the
xtenslve privileges created by the
tariff preferences through the Repub
lican party and the favors to the
privileged classes and corporations.
While wealth has accumulated under
these preferences, a fair field and no
favor has been denied to the masses.
We cannot expect remedies from
men high In office who in their entire
life work have been associates and
'participants with the favored class.
iMr. Roosevelt during his entire career
in politics and as the head of his
party has been the prrtector of many
trusts that the tariff has nourished
jand fostered nor have we found him
In the seven and one-half years of his
official life as president strenuous in
removing tariff Iniquities and Inequali

protective tariff, and would, If elected,
defend what to many minds Is the su

laborers, working at their desks as
many hours as the workman who Is
industrious and faithful to his task.
The very fact that they have been
selected as candidates for the office of
president ani. vice president of these
United States Is an Illustration of one
of the great boasts of the American
people that the man who Is faithful to
his trust, honest In his work, fearless
and courageous In his opinions, will In
time be noticed and receive a reward.
They have watched with concern every
aide of our political life that enters
Into the government of our people,
voicing their approval or disapproval
of situations as they arose.
Are Typical Americans.
No one can safely challenge the
soundness of their views or their lead
ership where economic questions eater

are typical Americans.

shall have both been before the people
when they received the approval of a

of the country to have these two gen

have the assurance that in their deeds
and acts they will labor to remove the
unrest that has been created In the ad

They are such chums, this "tender-hearted" governor and his wife, and

Mrs. Marshall Is honorary vice-president of the league and keenly inter

WASPS ARE HARD WORKERS
In Matter of Industry They Should
Be Classed With the Ants
Wasps appear to be well nigh as
industrious as ants or bees. One au

wasp will not work, neither shall he
Division of labor is clearly seen
in the wasp's nest. Some of the
workers seem to be specially em
ployed as foragers and soldiers, oth
ers appear to be told off as nurses
and guardians, while yet others are
engaged as paper makers and ma
sons. Wasps are at all times particularly
fond of honey. Toward the end of

The drones of the wasp world, in
stead of being idle and luxurious,
are sober, industrious and well be

They clean the streets of their town
with exemplary diligence, acting as
public scavengers or sanitary officers.
And they have their reward, for, un
like the bee drones, they live their
allotted life in peace and quietness
until winter involves both them and
their maiden sisters in one common
cattaclysm of death and destruction.
HOW THE EARTH DRIED UP

the Wilsons', is a home of books.
01 tne water vapor emitted by th
seas is decomposed by the ultra-violet
rays of the sun; the hydrogen
formed rises toward the high at
mospheric strata, and all the water
does not return to the surface.
Therefore, the quantity of water on
the face of the globe is always di
minishing and the earth is inces
santly, if gradually, drying.
' To cite one example: On the
north Eide of the Alps there is a con
tinual falling off in the depth of the
lakes and a gradual formation of
swamps. Two hundred and fifty,
years ago there were 149 lakes in the
canton of Zurireh, today there are
76. The destruction of the foresta
and the cultivation of the land par
tially explains this, but the loss of
hydrogen is an important factor.
The hydrogen accumulated in the
higher atmosphere is diffused in in
