The Cost of Government.

would have been incomplete indeed
without a statement of the fact that

necessary" in the conduct of the gov
ernment. If there are no evils to be
corrected, no wrongs to be righted, no
rascals to be turned out, the necessity
for a chtfnjre is not apparent.
Jud'" Parker approves the St. Louis
platform's demand for "a. thorough iu
vesti;;atio!i of those executive depart
ments already known to teem with
corruption, as well as other depart
ments suspected of harborim? corrup
tion, and the punishment of ascertained
corruptiou'sts without fe.ir or favor or
regard to persons." He likewise in
dorses the demand for reasonable re
tn :i hment and insists that the rov
ernment "should practice economy in
the expenditure f the moneys of the
people and to that end should return
once more to the methods of the found
ers id' the republic."
Thar there is need of a searching in
vestigation and a determined prosecu
tion of culprits is evident to every
body who has knowledge of the con
dition of affairs at Washington and
elsewhere. Altle-uuh Candidate House

speech of acceptance that "never lias
the administration of the preeminent

President IJoosevclt in his message to
c-iinrress last December did not ex-a'-erate
the truth in saving, "While
there may have been as much othdal
corruption in former years, there has
been more developed and brought to

the World said to the president:

DAILY SHORT STORY
THE YOUNG LECTURER.
TLe young professor was lecturing
to a mixed class of men and women.
His subject was mtntal philosophy,
and Le was treating of the emotions.
"Love." he said, "is perhaps the emo
tion which is best calculated to illus
trate the actual shallowness ftf our
emotional natures. A man sees a wom
an whom he desires to possess. The
faculty of imagination makes her a
paragon In his eyes. Constant dwell
ing on one subject produces mania. If
he marries the ceremony is scarcely
performed before reality usurps the
place so re ent'y occupied by emotion,
and the woman appears to him as her
real self, with the particular faults be
longing to that particular woman. If
he does not marry he is in time cured
of his mania, and the object that has
excited it becomes commonplace to
him. P.ut he is not immune. The love
t motion may again and again be ex
cited, the object in each case being
a different woman."
.When the class was dismissal the
students passe. 1 out of the lecture
room, and if any of them dissented
from his views the lecturer was not
made aware of the fact. His remarks
upon love produced no marked effect
on the young men of his class, but
among ihe girls there was a babe of
tomrues iudiiruaiitly denying the lec
turer's position, most of them averring
that the "coxcomb" had been jilted.
One girl, and only one. stool by him.
'A modest feminine creature who would
never be suspected of harboring such
heretical sentiments. Rut as she had

girlhood au.l answered to the common
place name of Luphemia Smith the
other girls declared that she agreed
with the young professor because it
was not probable that she would ever
have a lover.
Ten years passed. The man who
used bis "chair" simply to gain a live
lihood while he studied a profession
had become an eminent attorney. He
had been recently introduced to a lady
who bad taken possession of his heart.
He had forgotten his lectures on men
tal philosophy and on this particular
occasion was declaring his passion.
Nevertheless he had funned analytical
habits and must needs fall into them.
"There i nothing," lie said, "that so

tures as love. Never have I been so
impressed with this as since my heart
