Commission Form Growing.
Chicago News: One of the most!
impressive developments of recent.
years has been the steady, quiet, con-,
slant growth of sentiment for the com-1
mission form of government for cities.
This is one of the progressive move-;
mnts that is gradually srjreadina in-
ail parts of the country
It is not
f reeord that any place which has i
tried the experiment has returned to
the older forms.
How widespread the movement has
becemie it is no looser regarded as
a novelty is revealed in a recent re
port by the Short Ballot association,
wherein i.o !ess than 114 cities in
ibis county are listed under the rom
ruission form. It is true, of course,
that as yet the development has been
ratber closely confined to the small
er cities. Few of those that have
adi-.pted commission government ex
ceed K'0.000 in population. Of these
may be mentioned Oakland, Ca!.. 150.

of the room within which 1 heard the ,

"A message for the emperor of the
In the room, pacing back ard forth
find brandishing a knife, was a young ,
man about twenty years old. A girl
of eighteen was following him about,
talking with him in a voice of great
distress. I'.oth turned at once on hear
ing my voice. '
"Are you the emperor of the sir?" .
I asked of the man. I
"l have been sent by the king of
space, the realms of infinite ether, to
guide you to a new machine, a ma
chlue that will bear you not only to
Mars, a neighboring planet, but to
Neptune, the most distant, and thence
to the fixed stars."
My reference to hi proposed trip to
Mars awakened confidence at once.
"Where is this machine?" he asked.
"I am deputed by the king of space
to conduct you to it. Come. I have
a carriage below. You must depart
before the break of dawn." i
The knife dropped from his hand. ;
Instead of using it on the girl he kiss-
ed her and followed me down to the !
carriage. Having whispered to the
coachman to dr!ve us to a police sta
tion, I got in beside the emperor. On
arrival at the station I beckoned to a ;
policeman, who came to the carriage, j
"This is the emperor of the air," I
said, pressing the policeman's arm by '
way of warning. "Remain here while
I go inside. ' I'M bo out directly."
I told the sergeant at the desk my
story. We hunted up the address of :
an insane asylum, and in half an hour,
without even using the rope weapon I
had provided, we had him under con- .
tin anient. '
From the asylum I drove back to j
the house from which I had removed
the patient. Though it was late, 1 j
knew the young lady would be wait
ing for a report of what had happen- (
ed. On nrrieitl 1 rang the bell and
was admitted by her. She questioned
me eagerly with her eyes. I told her
(hat the young man was where he,
would be safe from hlmso.'f and could
not injure others. Then I asked her ,
to explain matters.
"He is my orciuer. sne en hi. in-

been lo sail higher iu the air thau any

We have the present ; that ia all.
So 1ft ua tmo It er It fllaa,
Enjov It as w o atonic
Ami crowd It with the thins that par.
Mix In a ahara of mirth anil morg
And maka the moot of each today.
We can but dwell upon the past.
And of the future we can dream.
But To the present, hard and font.
We can apply our puunda of Btnm
And make It count aa down the line
It paneca. laarlns naught behind
Bave records that for yeare will alilne
Or be a millstone on the mind.
If there Is anything hi Ufa
Worth llvinc It now and here.
Bo Mt ua niLnitla In ihe strife
And make of each a banner year.
No use to think how thlns would hum
Could we live yeeterday once more
Or plan for daya that are to come.
A brilliant and enchanted core.
Thla hour, thla moment. Is the one
In which we live and move and thins.
Admire the rainbow or the aim.
Enjoy the thlnjrs we eat and drink.
Ho till It up. and fill It t.lpM.
With word and smile and play and act.
W live It once in raising- by.
So let ua live It for a fact.
