Creating nearly 7.000 permanent re

strictly to business, Instead of pulling
wires to nominate and elect those who
made them will be the burning ques
tion. Civil service reform must be
fairly administered or we want none of
It. It Is a serious question to settle
whether a standing army of partisan
officeholders Is the best condition for
a democratic republic. It will be well
for democrats to keep their eyes on
these assistant postmasters so that
those who interfere in behalf of the
republican organization can be re
moved when the democrats get into
power. Every citizen has the right to
aspire to an appointive as well as an
elective office, and the appropriation of
most of the appointive offices by the
republicans Is not true civil service

The Anonymous Correspondent.
Since the inauguration of the crusade
against gambling in Rock Island, with
attending sensational developments,
Bcarcely a day has passed that the
mails have not brought to The Argus
communications from the readers of
the paper on the subject of popular
agitation which practically everybody
is discussing. Many of the letters have
contained merely words of approval of
The Argus course, being personal in
character, and duly signed and not in
tended for publication. Such communi
cations are always welcome in a news
paper office, as indicating that the
policy being pursued is appreciated
But there has come to The Argus a
great bulk of anonymous communi
cations the authors of which, entirely
umknown to the editor, have borne
various non-de-plumes, such as "Citi
zen", "Subscriber", "One of Your Read
ers", "Law and Order", Etc., and in
several of the letters-eo designed for
publication attacks are made upon the
authorities, county and municipal.
Others simply discuss the situation,
express the interest of the writers on
what is going on, cheer the Law and
Order league, commend the press and
condemn the public officials who have
been remiss In their duty.
While it is gratifying to note from
the number who have taken the pains
to write, the widespread concern that
has been aroused in Rock Island over
the recent happenings. The Argus is
forced to repeat what it has said many
times, that its columns ate under no
circumstances open to anonymous com
munications the authors of which are
unknown. People who are inclined to
write on subjects of public moment,
and civic pride, and on questions of
public morals and the enforcement of
law are often permitted to do so by
newspapers above -an assumed signa
ture, but in any event the cor
rect name ot the author must he
given to the editor. Where at
tacks are made or cveu crit
icism indulged in of anyone else, no
matter how well merited, the person
writing the communication must stand
publicly responsible for what he says.
The well regulated newspaper, will
not turn its columns over for the pro
miscuous use of everybody who may
want to express himself, and who is
not strong enough in conviction or
courage to give his name.
Communications of the last named
description invariably find their way

Winifred Stoner Rivals Harvard Pu
pil Who Matriculated at
the Age of 11.
Little Winifred Sackville Stoner, Jr.,
the linguistic wonder of Palo Alto,
Cal., seems in her accomplishments to
surpass all records of precocity.
The recorded feats of Intellect of
Thomas Babiugton Macaulay, Thomas
De Quincey. John Stuart Mill, Marga
ret Fuller, Charlotte Bronte and other
famous characters of history pale be
fore the fact that this little girl, only
eight years old, can carry on a conver
sation in English, French, Spanish,
Latin. Esperanto, Japanese, Russian,
German. Polish and Italian, while la
the first five she can think as well aa
Fler only known rival in early Intel
lectual development is William Jama
Sidis, the boy who at the age of eleven
years entered Harvard last autumn,
But the accomplishments of Sid Is are
more especially In mathematics and
philosophy, while little Miss Stoner
shows her femininity by her acquisi
tion of languages. Withal Bhe la a
healthy, normal child, as fond of dolls
and play as any other little girl who
knows only one language.
The father of little Cherie. as her
parents call her. Is Colonel J. B. Stoner
of the United States marine hospital
service, at present in command of the
United States marine hospital at Port
Townsend. Wash. It was from Port
Townsend that the mother and child
went to Palo Alto in search of a bet
ter climate. The mother is a daugh
ter of the late Lord Sackville-West.
British ambassador to the United
States during President Cleveland's
first administration. Mrs. Stoner Is
president of the Women's Esperanto
Association of North America and Is
an authority on the subject of the pro
posed International language.
"Her advancement." said her moth
er, "Is not due to anything but the
way In which she was educated. I be
gan with nor when she was three
weeks old. developing her both mental
ly and physically, and the effect of the
teaching and method is apparent. The
method used Is the training of William
James Sidis, the Boston lad. The
secret is to make their training play
"At the age of three she could op
erate the typewriter. That is a "Won
derful method of training a child's
mind. In writing on the typewriter
she not only learned to operate the In
strument, but she learned also to spell
and to memorize what she was writ
ing. Cherie began to compose verse
when she was three years old, and one
of her poems written at that age was
published in Puck."
When little Winifred was summoned
she showed all the bash fulness of a
child. She came into the room half
concealed behind her mother's skirts.
"Will you recite a poem?" suggested
Little Miss Poetess chose one of her
own efforts. This wr.s her verse:
One day I saw a bumblebee bumbling or.
And as I stood admiring him he stung mo
on the nose.
My nose In pain it swelled so large It
looked like a potato.
Bo daddy said, though mother thought
'twas more like a tomato, i
And now. dear children, this advice I
hope you'll take from me.
And when you see a bumblebee just lot
that bumble be. y
"She wrote that after she had been
stung, but the pun was not Intention
al, I think." said Mrs. Stoner, who
would limit the scope of ber daugh
The poem on the bumblebee Is one
of the pieces published In the book of
"Jingles." which Miss Winifred Sack
ville Stoner published at the age of
six. The child's most precocious and
autobiographical poem Is the second
In the little book. It is called "A
Great Surprise" and was "written for
mother and daddy."
On the nineteenth day of August In the
year of nineteen two
Most kind and gracious Mme. Stork right
over Norfolk flew
Und brouch to my dear mother there a
A little red brown baby girl with largs
Now mother she had asked the stork to
bring to her much joy
And drop a bundle at her door containing
a wee boy.
But when the stork made a mlstako and
brought Just little me
She thought that 1 was better far than
any boy could be
And wrapped mo In a blanket which she'd
planned for my wee brother -And
whlcii my dear "Ma Mle" had knit
to help my busy mother
And changed the mime of Lionel to lit
And all the things for brother planned
she gave to me Instead.
That tells of the arrival of little
Winifred at Norfolk, Va.. eight years
ago. It practically gives the date
when her education began.
"When did you first start to teaei.
Cherie?" was asked.
"As soon as she was born." replied
Mrs. Stoner. "That is the secret of
her training. Children's minds are lik?
wax, subject to an impression. In her
nursery I placed beautiful pictures on
the walls and reproductions of beauti
ful statues, not expensive works of
art, but the models of the best.
"Then from the first she was accus
tomed to the bes literature. We did
not recite the silly nursery rhymes to
her. but only the best. Instead of tell
ing her the usual stories that are told
children I related to her the stories
from the Bible and from mythology.
When Cherie was three months old I
would read to her from the Latin writ
ers. I would recite for her such po
ems as 'Crossing the Bar.'
"When she was six months old she
could walk, and when she was eight
months old she cculd talk," related
Mrs. Stoner. "When she was a year
old she could scan from Virgil, and at
two years she could read. She did
read when she was a year and a half
old. but I think then she did not really
read, but used ber memory. From the
first I taught her languages."
Cherie said ber favorite play wa
"The Merchant of Venice." but her
mother opined that it was "The Tam
ing of the Shrew." The child's knowl
edge of mythology led her to name her
kittens after the three graces, and
when two more came she dubbed them
Zeus and Aphrodite. But her two
dolls bear the prosaic names of Char
ley and Lucy, and they are being
"taught" by their infant mother as
Mrs. Stoner teaches Cherie.
Throughout the country college pro
fessors and educators have taken the
utmost interest in little Cherie's de
velopment Professor George Maclos
kie of Princeton university has studied
her, and not only that, but shared the
honors with the child at a recital at
the Esperanto congress at Chautau
qua. N. Y., when the little miss was
seven years of age. At the age of
four the child received a medal from
Dr. Zamen. fonnder of Esperanto, for
The little girl is not a fit subject
for the public graded schools, for,
while she has the historical and lan
guage education of half a dozen col
lege graduates, ber mathematical
training, unlike that of young William
James Sidis, her Boston compeer and
hero of the fourth dimension, is not
unusually precocious for her. She can
only do fractions and decimals, while
most children of her age are learning
what numbers look like. She Is learn

which had suddenly come to light be

before Matthew began to note essen

like a weed, and a week later. t hfs
own intense amazement, he found him
self watching at the sjeiuiweekly lec- j !
tr.re on literature for the entrance
of one particular nigret. It was n
black aigiet, spangled with silver and
perched coquettish! on what Matthew
somewhat inadequately described to
himself as a "big green lint," in bliss
ful ignorance of the fact that there ar?
greens and greens and that this espe
cial green was a soft dark emerald,
which had nothing in common with
the blatant paudiness of liphter tints
and was, moreover, m.st distractingly
becoming to the face underneath. Hut
there was no doubt in his mind about
tho face itself. Even his untutored
appreciation grasped the fact that twice
a week the most delicate complexion
and tho brownest eyes and the softest
chestnut hair and the most bewilder
ing tip tilted uose and the sweetest
mouth in two hemispheres were sepa
rated from him, in fact, by the width

lessly chose that most Inconvenient
and circuitous route to college. Once
only he saw her ou the steps, and then
she was talking with another man,
and the stupidest man, at that, in the
whole of Kenton City!
Things went on In this fashion until
February, and then Matthew took a
resolution. In his mother's conserva
tories the violets were already In
bloom. They were a fad of Mrs. pa

Hut she was a wcnian of perspicacity,

in the fisce and stammering desperate

ing to leave the plants untouched until
his return from college that afternoon
she contented herself with a calm
"Certainly, my sou." which earned his
gratitude, while it excited his"astou

destroyed, first blotting them with ad
mirable distinctness on the writing

That afternoon he gathered every
white violet i:i sight and, with some
thing akin to instinct. laid thorn loose
ly together in a box with some maid
enhair tfi-n instead of arranging them
in the inevitably depressing form of a
masculine bouquet. Then he sat in
his stutly for a full hour, pen in hand
and a sheet of paper before him, bit

seven words "Will you wear these at

noon, seated on one of the campus
benches, he replied with acerbity that
too frequently merged into profanity
to all remarks addressed to him. He
became in short order an object of
derision. Groups gathered about him
and from a safe distance bombarded
him with sarcasm, as small boys throw

the most' irreverent of his tormentors
exclaimed. "Who is she. Mutt?" and

not worn the violets as he had asked.
She had rebuked him for the imperti

was a ead. And the spirit of Matthew
Paeon plunged promptly into the neth
ermost abyss of despair.
For fifteen minutes, which seemed
like as many years, he sat, with his
temples In his hands, gazing with un
seeing eyes at the lines before himnnd
telling himself that there was nothing
left to make life worth the living.
Through his preoccupation he heard
the voice of one of the library pages
ppeaklng to a reader opposite to him
at the table.
"The librarian says he's sorry, miss,
but 'Furradize Lost is out. Here's the
other book you wanted."
In a lightning flash of thought Mat
thew knew what voice it was that he
would hear in reply.
"Oh, dear!" said Natalie Ayres.

spent an apparent eternity upon a rack

the voice of the .sge, informing Miss
Ayres that she could now have "Pur

When he looked up it was to meet
her eyes. For a moment they stared
at each other, Matthew turning from
