The Knisaace Carrie Nation.
Carrie Nation, on the vaudeville
sstage at Rockaway, continues to fur

the general public, and her more re

Mrs. Nation belongs to the same
category as the Cherry sisters of no
torious memory. Her absolute "gall"
brought her before the public, which
allowed itself to be amused by her
gaucheries for a time, and she -has
made money out of the opportunity
thus presented. Hut Carrie is neither
versatile nor clever. She soon ceases
to be an amusing freak and becomes
merely a tiresome old insane person.
She goes about snatching cigarettes
and cigars from the mouths of total
strangers; she throws a shawl over
the shoulders of a lady in evening cos
tume; she shouts vulgarly and un
grammatically about ."rum" which
the great majority of her. hearers
have never tasted, and then she
throws a brick at a specially prepar
ed vvindowy thereby giving the pleased
saloonkeeper' a'- free advertisement
most beneficial to his-'business. '
The public got tired of the Cherry
bisters and the latter showed their
good sense by ceasing their exhibi
tions forthwith. Hut Carrie does not
seem to have Jearned that she is a
chestnut. It will not le until some
body takes the trouble to explain to
her in the more or less forcible man
ner suited to her comprehension that
ehe is no. longer even a good joke that
she will retire to her native wiids.

An open letter from J. B. Corey, the
retired coal magnate and uncle of W.
E. Corey, preside"! of the United States
Steel trust, to Prcsadent.Roosevelt says:
"It Is reported, and is going the
rounds of the public press that you
propose to call an extra session of con
gress to tinker with our national cur
rency in order to affrd relief to the
Wall street stock gamblers and multi
millionaire adventurerswhoHe artistic
nlly printed certificates of stocks and
bonds fill our national Iwuk vaults and
which have brought on the present
panic. As an American 'Citizen, feeling
a deep interest ami pride in the good
name of the American people and the
honor of our national government, I
sincerely hope that 'tin dignity of our
nation, the good name of the American
people, as well as the success of your
own administration, will cause you to
refuse to commit such a gnure mistake
as that of calling an extra session of
congress. If you will stop and consider
for one moment the fact will appear
that the majority of the menicoinpos
ing our national congress a re ( as men
tally unfit to legislate upon a 'financial
or currency measure asilhey are moral
ly Incapable of resisting the temptation
to fall victims to Wall street stock
gamblers and adventurers. . U is a well
established fact that the ' jinTitleal and
business interests of the American peo
ple are never as safe and free from
disturbance as they are when congress
is not in session."
That Is a more Incisive and. harsh in
dictment of the Republican party in
congress than Democratic newspapers
or speakers have ever made, and it is
hardly possible to doubt Its truth, -om-ing
from one so well informed as the
writer is. He appears to be as well ac
quainted with the Waif street element
that controls the Republican party as
he is with the personnel of the major
ity in congress.
Is It not a travesty on statesmanship
that the business men of the country
have to appeal to the president not to
call congress together congress, which
should legislate for the benefit of the
whole people? But if it is a fact that
the majority of the Republicans are
such scamps as, Mr. Corey says they
are it is no wonder that scandals are
prevalent in the post office, the war
and Intetjior and ot.ier departments of
the government, the only check on
these departments being the oversight
of the representatives that the people
President Roosevelt mry refuse td
take the advice of Mr. Corey and call
congress in. extraordinary session "to
tinker with our natjonal currency in or
der to afford relief to the Wall street
stock gamblers," but that would not be
a good card to play when just entering
upon the presidential campaign. Those
voters, and they are tbe great major
ity, who have no interest in Wall street
stock jobbing are not, asking President
Roosevelt to call congress together be
fore the regular session begins, for
they know that the legislation desired
by them namely, tariff reform and
trust control is not possible from con
gress as at present constituted. d

DAILY SHORT STORY
The day I went to the country I
found Murcella much depressed. I
was told that Eeter Douglas had gone
the day before. She said nothing to
me altout Douglas, and I ( supposed she
was not aware that I know of his hav
ing been there. At any i?ite, she gave
herself away by asking me to play
accompaniments for her'nnd insisted
Oh. won't you comriback tonne, Douglas,
Douglas, teiuler andltrue?
I did not mind it at first, but when I
found that she could never go to the
piano without wanting to sing the
Iouglas song I tired of it. Finally,
one misty evening when she appeared
more than usually depressed .fter the
invitation to Douglas to come back to
her, sin well, she wept; wept with me,
an able bodied, fairly attractive man
present to entertain, amuse. Interest
her. I wished that Doughts"' would
come back and remain long enough In
the grounds for me to go out and
punch ids head.
I finally Intimated that this Douglas
business was growing .tiresome, think
ing she would mend her wayw. What
was my surprise when she sorrowed
more for Douglas than ever. BesideB,
she seemed hurt, if not offended, that
I should take so matter of fact a view
of what she called "tepder associa
tions." and refused to allow me to play
the accompaniment again, playing it
herself and stumbling at fwry note.
Something must be done. Two weeks
once a year are too short to be spoiled
by such nonsense, and I resolved on a
stroke. One evening, after she had
wailed the usual plaint to Douglas, I
went to the piano, and after a few.
melancholy chords sang:
O Mary, dear, departed shede.
Whore Is thy place of bltesful rest?
See'et thou thy lover lowlyllald?
Ilear'st thou the groans that rend his
I arose from the piano and went and
sat In a dark corner forawhile, then
"Don't you think," 1 said, sighing,
"that anniversaries are very sad?"
"Very," she replied, not sympathet
ically, I thought.
"Nothing more so,"' I sighed again.
"I supposed you to be a bachelor. It
appears that you areia widower."
"How did you findthat out?"
"By your singing Burns beautiful
lament to his wife sot feelingly."
"Am I to consider you a widow be
cause you are pining for Douglas?"
She got up and went Into the house.
The next day was Saturday, and the
usual overflow from the city was ex
pected. Murcella looked troubled.
"What's the matter?" I asked.
"Douglas moved farther away?"
She bit her lip. I didn't know then
why. but I found out before long.
Without any reply 'she went into the

meeting, blushed, violently, made a few
incoherent replies to his tender re
marks and a dash for cover. Douglas
There was little seen of Marcella the
Monday after Douglas had departed on
the early morning train. The same
evening she sat in an obscure corner
of the parlor with a novel. I went to
the piano and sang
Won't you come back to me, Douglas,
Douglas, tender and true?
I sang the whole song over twice,
then walked out on to the piazza. It
wasn't long before I heard a few som
ber chords, followed by
, O Mary, dear, departed shade.

I couldn't understand what had led
the girl . to play such a. game. I went
to a good . friend , of mine, a married

A few days later when I announced
to my-mentor that Marcella and I
were engaged she replied:
"She played that very well. Without
the Douglas Incentive it never could
have been done in two weeks, possibly
not In months."
