And yet it was Roosevelt who gave
the country Taft!
That noise you heard last night
came from the corn fields.
Congress hopes it can adjourn this
week. The people hope so, too.
The Outlook has two editorials on
Roosevelt both in favor of him.
"You can not control the trusts by
the government when the government
is controlled by the trusts." Senator
Robert L. Owen.
Trust magnates who didn't worry
much about stocks while Roosevelt was
president feel perfectly justified in
welcoming the great hunter home.
Nat Goodwin has cracked many good
Jokes on marriage and divorce, but fails
to see. any humor In the report he has
tearfully denied that he and Mrs. Good
win are about to separate.
Mr. Ballinger continues to deny that
he will resign. Perhaps Mr. Ballinger
ha written himself a letter, with Mr.
Taft's name attached, saying there is
no need for him to resign.
Whisky has been shipped into "dry"
Nebraska towns hidden in gum drops,
says a telegraph dispatch. It is unnec
essary t& add that there will be a boom
In the gum drop market in Nebraska.
Colonel Roosevelt is right In driving
the pest of newspaper representatives
from his home. The people want the
news and they admire enterprise em
ployed to get it, but even Roosevelt
should be given a rest.
An association of shippers of freight
has thanked President Taft for his in
terference with the railroad bill. The
thanks of the railroad presidents will
come later, and the gratitude of the
ultimate consumers, who pay the
freight, will come last.
' Leaders In the Young Men's Chris
tian association of Chicago have start
ed a movement that they hope will re
sult in every boy and girl in the public
schools learning to swim. They have
offered through one of the branch as
sociations to teach all the pupils in
eight North Side schools how to take
care of themselves in the water. From
this beginning it is expected that the
instruction will be extended to all
schools. "The need for instruction in
swimming is demonstrated by the fact
that over 4,000 men and boys in the
United States and Canada are acci
dentally drowned each year and the
records show that most of these per
sons could not swim," says one of the
Young Men's Christian association
The Price of Labor.
Statistics compiled by the federal
bureau of labor show that of male op
eratives of all ages competing with
women and children in the New Eng
land cotton mills 4S.6 per cent earn
less than $7 a week, and 55.5 per cent
of the. women and girls earn less than
that. In the southern cotton mills SG.l
per cent of the female operatives earn
less than $7 a week, and 74.9 per cent
of the male operatives in the same
classes of work earn less than $7.
The wages of foreign factory opera
tives are not so much less than these
that the difference in labor costs can
have much effect upon the prices of
goods, especially as In American man
ufactories there is almost invariably a
smaller number of work people in pro
portion to the amount of machinery
than there is in European establish
Redemption of Jonathan Dolliver.
We do not wish to detract one iota
from the importance of the service
Senator Dolliver of Iowa rendered the
nation when he exposed the evils of
our system of protection.
On the other hand, we applaud his
courage in breaking away from the
gang, and his patriotism in pointing
out to the people the outrageous man
ner in which republican protection is
robbing he many for the few.
But there is a lesson in Dolliver's
form reversal which ' should receive
due consideration by the people.
Dolliver Is a great orator. He has
the ability to convince people that
what he says is true. In all of the re
cent campaigns he used this ability to
make the common people believe high
protection was a great blessing to
Dolliver now stops suddenly, in the
midst of his work and looks about him.
He beholds the results- of his own
voice. The people are crying out at
the increased prices that have accom
panied republican protection.
Dolliver sees that the greedy tariff
barons have throttled not only the re
publican party, but the law-making ma
chinery of the United States; he sees
that by virtue of the very tariff system
he imploroM the people to accept? the
rich are becoming richer, and that the
masses or plain people are ever being
forced to a lower and still lower stand
ard of living through increased prices.
His eyes opened, Dolliver looks still
deeper into conditions and he sees that
the life of the republic itself is endan
gered by the legislative outrages that
have accompanied protection. Ap- j
palled and conscience-stricken at his !
own work, the mighty Iowan cries ;
"I am through with it." says Dolliver.
"I do not propose that the remaining .
years of my life shall be given up in
dull consent to the success of "all these
conspiracies (Conspiracies in the
Payne-Aldrich law). I intend to fight J
as a republican for a free market 6n
In other words. Dolliver has about !
reached the conclusion that the posi- j
tion of the democratic party on the j
tariff is right and has been all along! !
Work, But lHn't Worry.
Advice by an energetic, efficient bus
iness man to a man now going back to
work after a tired-out spell: "Take
things easy and get more fresh air.
No worry. Do the most important
thing first, and then the next; gen
erally the things you don't do aren't
worth doing. What you think you
ought to do you want to do up to the
handle, and do it quick and then forget
it. Don't putter. The way to get along,
in my judgment, is to work up to the
limit for a certain number of hours,
and then stop. A man can get fur
ther In the long run by walking three
and a half miles an hour for eight
hours out of each 24 than he can going
two miles an hour for 1G hours in 24.
The first way he can keep going and
improve; the last way he will deter
iorate and finally have to quit."

regulated and well ordered house. It
has been carefully planned and built

tion is of the very finest quality
One of its chief features is Ray
Stannard Baker's article on "The
Measure of Taft." "A famous Afri
can hunter will be returning to these
shores about the time this article is
published," says the editor in a fore
word. "What will he do? What will
be his attitude toward Mr. Taft? This
is peculiarly a fitting time to take ac
count of Taft and of his administra
tive acts, as Mr. Baker has done with
great care in the following article."
Every voter in the United Statc3
should read what Mr. Baker says. Mr.
Taft is weighed in a very finely adjust
ed and closely recording balance, but
Mr. Baker leavi3 it to his readers to
determine whether or not Mr. Taft is
found wanting. ,

Rebecca was washing dishes in the big
kitchen. Henry Miles and his wife
came out dressed in their best clothes
and got into the waiting buggy. Ever
since they had been married twenty
five years before the Sunday afternoon
rido had been a regular proceeding.
Their daughter Beth waved them a
farewell as they drove out of the big
Beth looked anxiously away toward
the woods that bordered the distant
wheattields. Behind them rose a pale
gray cloud now and then flecked by
flying cinders. Rain had not fallen for
several weeks, and the woods were
like tender, and the paths were thickly
carpeted with dry leaves fallen from
The kitchen windows faced the
wheatfields. and Rebecca's red face
was pressed anxiously to the pane.
Then she saw Beth and came to the
"The woods are afire. Miss Beth,"
she said excitedly. "Your pa's wheat
will be done for if the wind don't
change pretty soon."
The wheatfield was an undulating
sea of pale green blades six inches
high. The dry weather had slightly
parched the tips, and Beth bent down
to assure herself that the grain was
too green to be affected by the fire
even if it should reach the fields.
When slip looked up again several men
were running across the field. One of
them saw her. paused and turned back.
Slowly she 'walked through the'
wheat, her light tread scarcely crush
ing the young shoots. Her fair cheeks
took on the rose tint of early dawn,
and her blue eyes were veiled under
a thick fringe of lashes. The man
watched her coming toward him, his
handsome eyes drinking in her fresh,
spring-like beauty. Her pink gown fell'
softly about hfr slender form as th
green wheat rippled about her feet.
At last B th lifted ' her shy eyes
and saw his good looking face with
its reckless. 'smiling lips saw the
immaculate whiteness of his collar
and cuffs and the trim neatness of
his handsome c lothes. He carried his
coat on his arm and slipped into it

A look of disappointment crept into

The young man laughed good na-
tureuly. "It isn't necessary. There

with sand or back fire, but it's got
too big a headway. Besides, the wind
