Aldrich and Rubber.
Senator Bristow of Kansas has
called attention to the fact that the
Aldrich tariff revision of last year in
creased the protection on manufac
turers of rubber from 30 to 35 per
cent; that the International Rubber
company is a manufacturer of rubber
goods favored by this tariff change;
and that E. B. Aldrich, a son of the
senator, is president of the said com
pany and the senator himself is a di
rector. Thi3 relation, however, is not
likely to disturb the senator a particle.
Others may regard the proceeding
as improper, but not Mr. Aldrich, who
has so long trained in the school of
high protection which regards the tax
ing power of the nation as a sort of
private possession for the help of spe
cial private interests.
"Their Ways Are Separate."
The Beverly staff correspondent of
the New York World ventures the in
teresting information that there is to
be no joining of hands between resi
dent Taft and Theodore Roosevelt in
the present political situation, but that
each will go his own way without let
or hindrance from the other. He
"Politics and policies were not men
tioned by Mr. Taft nor Mr. Roosevelt
at the recent meeting; the two men
do not expect to see each other again
before election, and they are not in
communication by wire or letter. Thefe
is no break in the personal friendship.
President Taft has solved the Ballinger
case to his own satisfaction by asking
Ballinger to remain in his cabinet.
Ballinger has announced he will re
main without hard feelings. Presi
dent Taft has decided to go on being
president on his own account.
"Colonel Roosevelt will work along
such lines as may please him best.
There has been no declaration of this
between the two men by word of mouth
or other form of communication. It is
a distinct understanding. The under
standing took form when President
Taft joined forces openly with Cannon
and Aldrich and took the Ballinger end
of the Pinchot affair. But there has
not been, and there will not be, recrim
ination or attack."

The Pork Barrel.
The Peoria Star relates a story told
by Arthur W. Dunn, who has charge of
the legislative work at the national
capital for one of the news agencies. It
tells how legislative appropriations
came to be designated as "The Pork
Barrel." It was in the 51st congress
under the domination of Tom Reed. In
those days they did not have omnibus
claims bills, but two days were set
apart for the consideration of public
buildings bills. It is doubtful whether
Reed would have allowed that time if
Seth Milliken of Maine had not been
chairman of the committee on public
buildings and grounds and had every
thing cooked up to take care of the
Pine Tree state ahead of all others.
There was a great scramble for place,
and late in the afternoon, about half
past 5, with a dozen bills still on the
calendar, one of the economists on the
republican side moved to adjourn. In
stantly there was a great clamor among
those whose bills had not been reach
ed, and high above the din and uproar
was heard the voice of Tom Clunie.
Clunie was a democrat, representing a
San Francisco district, and was one of
the best fellows imaginable. Every
body liked him. Jovial, smiling, with
a good word or a joke for everybody,
he was beyond doubt one of Jhe most
popular men in the house. "Hold on,
there; hold on, there!" shouted Tom,
and his voice rang out so loud that
everybody stopped. "Don't adjourn
until I get my piece of pork." He at
tempted some other explanation, but it
was drowned in a roar of laughter. It
The house refused to adjourn, and
the appropriation for a public building
in Tom Clunie's district in San Fran
cisco was passed. Ever since that time
everything that means an appropria
tion for a congressman's district has
been labeled "Fork," and congressmen
have been abused because they were

the tinkers of his left .'iufferly raising

"the steel Eible of Busbido."
But this is only the beginning of the
formality. When the Japanese host
unsheaths the blade he does it with
the edge toward bis own body aDd the

When the guest receives the sword in
his own hands he must be careful to
keep the outer edge always away from

the blade he must even turn his back
so that never will the menace of the
sharpened edge be directed toward bis

The etiquette of the sword is no
empty thing. With the high spirited

many centuries of chivalry and of
haud fighting behind them, the deli

sword of the samurai has a signifi

losophy of the sworn no less stern
than the use of the weapon.
In the old days when the Japanese
fighters wore the war masks and the
steel armor seen nowadays in the
curiosity shops the boy was taught
that as the shining blade must be kept
free from spot and corruption, so must
his soul be ever clean. Neglect of the
blade brings rust; neglect of the soul
an impure character.
Then the sharp edge was held not
only as a constant 'ardiau of per
sonal safety and honor, but as a sacred
disciplinarian to punish whenever its

The Argus Daily Short Story
The Alabama's Pirate Chick By Kingsbury Welch.
Copyrighted. 1B10. by Associated Uttra ry Press.
There were during the civil war sev
eral Confederate privateers fitted out
to prey ou American commerce. The
most important of these were the Ala
bama und the Florida. The former,
commanded by an ex-official of the
United States nnvy, literally swept our
merchant marine, which at that time
had taken the lead iu the world's car
rying trade, from the seas.
Raphael II. Semiues was the captain
of the vessel, which was often dubbed
a pirate, and when she was sent to
the bottom in Cherbourg harbor by
the Kearsarge she left a successor iu
a real pirate, one that floated the skull
and crossbones instead of the stars
The birth of this offshoot, for which
Tarantula would have been an appro
priate name, was in this wise: There
was among t lie crew of the Alabama,
which was made up of the most des
perate men of nil nations, one named
Dixon, lie is said to have been a ml!d
mannered man, slender and delicate
looking, but as bloodthirsty as a tiger.
He was called Crocodile Dixon, the
surnnnis being abbreviated to Crocky.

from which he scudded away as

has always been in vofrue in that part
of the world, and Malay pirates have
often figured in stories of luckless trav
elers who have been forced to walk
the plank. At any rate. Crocky Dixon
concluded to make It his field.
One evening Crocky Dixon snt on

bled a spider watching some clumsy
insect getting itself entangled in a
web, Dixon lay perfectly still, con
fident that the big ship, unwieldly in
the iiarrow strait, would fall into his
bands. Perhaps ttiere were other ves
sels! in sight whose attention be did
not care to attract; perhaps he pre
ferred the morning for the capture.
At any rate, he made no move to get
up ; his anchor and carefully avoided
displaying any evidence of the charac

Tlie ship he watched was the Mary
P.lake of PhKrKlelpbi:!. She had been
u Japau with a cargo for that coun
try, and was making her way back
- m . t ? ..-v.-w n -... ,a.-. .-ej
with Japanese goods for America. Be
sides her crew were a number of pas
sengers, including women and chil
dren. Captain Archer, a young man
who had been promoted from mate,
was her commander. He bad recently
been married, and his wife was
Now. the captain bad been in these
waters before and knew its dangers.
As soon as he espied the low cut
schooner lying at anchor so quietly he
suspected her. This is why ho risked
getting his ship aground ou the rocks
before nightfall in order to make the
open sea. He had a pilot, but the air
was murky, and he was afraid of fog.
If the schooner were really a pirate
Do might better sink bis ship than fall
a prey to her. On the other hand. If
a fog came on It might conceal the
ship from the pirate.
While he was debating the chances
a mist settled down which soon con
cealed the two vessels from each oth
er. Dixon before the Mary Blake was
hidden had noted her position so that
he would be able to steer for her in
ease the fog protected her for too long
n time to accord with bis interests.
Oftptaiu Archer, who had anchored,
feeing the necessity of changing b.Is
position, raised the anchor and permit
ted the title to carry hitn half a mile

ing something by going farther, he an
When darkness fell the Semmes was
sUU iu her original position, while the
Mary -Blake w.s half a mile away
from where Crocky Dixou supposed
the was. During the night Captain
Archer thought it expedient to inform
both his crew and his passeugers of
the danger. If Ihe schooner he had
seen was-a pirate, as soon as the fog
lifted be would come for them. And
if It did not soon lift he might not wait
for it to do so. Thi captain therefore
directed that not a light should appear
on the ship' and there should be no
noise aboard to indicate to the pirates
that the two vessels were near each
Not a person aboard the Mary Blake
tdept that night except the children
who were too young to understand the
terrible danger that threatened them.
Tlu; captain told them that there was
little danger of being attacked at
night and that they had better get
what rest they could, siuce they might
need all their fortitude in the morning.
No change iu the weather came with
the dawn. The fog remained, aud
there was uo wind. Dixon ordered
out a boat's crew to pull the Semmes
toward where lie had last seen the
Mary Blake. But the whip was not
where he had last seen her. Knowing
that since the could not have moved
up she must have moved down, he di
rected the oarsmen to pull down
stream. It was about 4 o'clock in the
morning that oflicers, crow and passen
gers of the Mary Blake the passen
gers herded together in groups on deck
caught the sound of oars working In
rowlocks. Every cheek blanched. The
women gathered their children in their
arms as if to shield them. But no one
uttered even a moan lest the sound
should betray them. Captain Archer
leaned over the bulwarks, listening in
tently. What arms there were aboard
had beeu brought up and placed on
deck, with the intention that if board
ed tho men would sell their lives as
dearly as possible, but ns to making a
successful defense, it was not consid
ered. As the sound grew more dis
tinct, indicating that tho boat was ap
proaching, the cnptaln turned and, fac
ing the terror stricken people on deck,
put his finger on Lis Hps to enjoin
All could hear the sound of oars
working slowly, indicating to the ex
perienced ears of Captain Archer that
a boat was towing some craft larger
than itself. Then there was a sound
of an oar slipping from a rowlock.
Some greenhorn had "caught a crab."
The next instant there came over the
water frightful paths and the crack of
a pistol. Crocky had first 6Worn at
aud then shot the man who had slip
ped his oar.
This was quite enough to indicate to
those on tie Mary Blake the awful
fate in store for them In case they
were found by the pirate. The men
drew long breaths. The women put
wraps about the '-bildrea's heads, fear
ing that they in. t cry. Not a sound
escaped, and in ,'ew minutes it was
evident that the pirates bad missed
But it was not to be expected that
the search was ended. Crocky would
continue it as long as the fog lasted,
and when it lifted they would be at
bis mercy. Many were the prayers
whispered that Providence might in
terpose between them and the horrors
awaltluff them. All now hoped that the
fog would continue, that the expected
massacre or walking of the plank,
whichever it might be, should be de
ferred aa Ion? as jossible. Then, too.
the longer tbe foe; lasted the more hope
that something might occur to change
There were no further Indications of
the presence of the pirate for an hour.
The fog was gettlug thinner, and it
was plain that it might at any mo
ment be possible to distinguish through
it objects at a fair distance. Then
came another terror for those aboard
the Mary Blake. The sound of oars
was again beard, this time more
rapid, indicating that they were not
towing. Then through the dissipating
mist was seen a boat pulled by six
oarsmen. As soon as they espied the
Mary Blake they set up a blood cur
dling shout. Besting on their oars,
they began to look about them for the
Semmes, which they had evidently left
in the prosecution of their search.
And now with the suddenness of up
lifting fogs this one vanished, giving
place to bright sunshine. The rowboat
was a cable"s length from the Mary
Blake, the Semmes was half a mile
beyond the rowboat, and two miles
above was a ship coining down with
tae tide, which had just turned. A
light breeze filled her sails. But the
most gladdening sight of all was tho
square openings along her sides for
guus, Indicating that she was a man-of-war,
tied more cheering than all
was the stars and stripes streaming
from the peak.
To the men in tbe boat the sight of
this new ship was as terrifying as It
was gratifying to those on the Mary
Blake. They pulled frantically to tho
Semmes, whose crew, having seen the
Blrht, were getting up sail. Having
taken aboard ffce boat's crew, they
slipped their cable and made off to the
southward at an angle with the course
of the man-of-war. By the time the
latter received tlie signals that the fly
ing schooner was a pirate it was too
late. She had got into waters where
the armed vessel could not follow her.
Then those on the Mary Blake fell

The Way the Great Emperor Charles
V. Ate His Meals.
The diary of a German gentleman,
Bartholomew Sastrow, who lived In
the time of the Emperor Cnarles V.,
gives us a good idea of the gastronom
ic customs of those times. Sastrow's
description of the table Habits of the
greatest ruler in his day Is very inter
esting. Youns princes and counts served the
repast. There were invariably four
courses of six dishes. The emperor
bad no one to carve for him. He be
gan by cutting his bread in pieces
large enough for one mouthful, then
attacked bis plate. He ofteu used bis
fingers while he held the plate under
his chin with the other hand.
When be felt thirsty he made a sign
to the "doctor" standing by the table;
then they went to the sideboard for
two sliver ilagons and filled a goblet
which held about a measure and a
half. The emperor drained it to the
last drop, practically at one draft
During the meal he never uttered a
syllable, scarcely smiled at the most
amusing sallies of the Jesters behind
his chair, finally picked his teeth with
quills and. after washing his hands,
retired to a window recess, where any
body could approach him with a petition.
