It is no part of the duty of the Unit
ed States to interefer in Haytl unless
conditions should be such as to threat
en American life and property. Some
of the leading republican newspapers
are crying out for intervention and cit
ing the case of Cuba as an exsniple.
The conditions are different. Cuba
was being oppressed by a foreign pow
er. Hayti is an independent power,
possessing full autonomy and full
self government. This government
may be of tire poorest, but that U none
of our concern unless American life
or American property is menaced. The
St. Louis Globe-Democrat, usually a
very conservative journal, has come
out strongly in favor of American in
tervention and bases it upon the Mon
roe doctrine, which seems to ns an
unwarrantable assumption. The Mon
roe doctriue dees not make the United
States the guardian of all the Ameri
can continental nations. Such a con
struction of it is absurd. The Globe
Democrat even goes further and ad
vocates the forcible annexation of Hay
ti if "necessary."
. It will never be necessary and any
plea of necessity will be a mere sub
terfuge. We annexed Porto Rico and
the Philippines because they fell into
our hands as the spoils of war. Wheth
er we gained any real advantage there
by is still a debatable question. There
Is one thing certain that we don't want
Hayti. If it is necessary to seed our
navy or a part of our army there to
straighten things out and make those
people respect the laws of civilization,
-why we can do it and trim them to a
finish in a short time, but just at pres
ent, we have no excuse for doing so.
Let the Haytians ngnt it out Between
themselves for the present and see
wfcere they land. Intervention by the
United States is a last resort. The)
Monroe doctrine has nothing to do with
this case. ,
Any action taken by this government
must be based upon a different reason-
Untaxing of Food.
The farmers' free list bill, which
was passed by the United States
senate, was a step in the right direc
tion. The republican insurgents
were anxious, as all republicans were
and for what reason the Lord only
knows to keep the home market
closed to food products which the
American farmers in normal times
are capable of supplying in excess of
domestic needs. In other words they
were after the farmer vote on the
same old pretext that has served
them veil in the past.
What nonsense! With their sur
plus the American farmers are ex
porters in competition with the
whole world. Their very surplus is
a protection to them. President Taft
spoke the plain truth when he said
that the admission of Canadian prod
ucts under the reciprocity agree
ment would not reduce the cost of
living but in exceptional years would
tend to steady the prices in the case
of a shortage In the home market.
Free meats and free wool cannot
seriously affect American farmers.
In time of short crops a certain quan
tity of food imports might find their
way to this country and interfere
with the cornering of the supply by
the trusts and price manipulation by
speculators. A market already over
stocked is not a market that the for
eign producer seeks. A market un
derstocked should welcome the for
eign, producer's assistance if the in
dustries of the country and the well
being of its people are not to be sac
rificed to inordinate greed and or
The high 'cost of living has become
a drag upon the vigor and vitality of
the United States. It has been reduc

of living in worklngmen's homes.
That to make sectional capital for
any party or any faction a rheasure
promising partial relief in time of
need to millions of consumers should
fail to pass in congress shouldbe

Parables of Teddy.
Quincy Herald: And it came to pass
that in the year of our Lord, 1911, and
in the third year of the reign of Wil
liam the Ponderous, that a great hub
bub arose in the land. There were
mutterings that one Teddy, a king who
had fallen from his high estate, had
during his reign buried the book of the
law, trampled the laws of his father
'under his feet and allowed malefactors
of great wealth to win many riches and
great wealth unduly. And it came to
pass that the once mighty Teddy was
summoned before the priests and the
scribes who were appointed to inquire
into his doings. And a great multi
tude assembled to hear Teddy. And
Teddy opened his lips and spake and
told to his people the following par
able: "My feeling toward them is illustra
ted by the ship In distress, when it s
necessary to haul in the rope on the
sail to prevent the boat from going
over. I welcome help in such a crisis
from any trustworthy individual, and I
don't care whether he is actuated by
altruistic ideas about me or is saving
his own skin. What I do want him to
do is to pull hard on that rope. It is
also Illustrated by the man In a fire. A
building is burning, full of people, anJ
1 want him to help put out the fire to
save the Inhabitants, even though ha
may be interested in saving his own
house nearby. I don't ask him while
he is working at the bouse to analyze
the extremely mixed motives. I want
him to help put out the fire."
And when he had finished, there was
a great stir among the folk, and they
said. "Hear, hear!" But then the
mighty Teddy again opened his lips
and spoke another parable, saying:
"If I were on a sailboat I should not
ordinarily meddle with any of the gear,
but if a sudden squall struck us and
the main sheet jammed so that the
boat threatened to capsize, I would un
hesitatingly cut the main sheet even
though I were sure that the owner, no
matter bow grateful to me at the mo
ment for having saved his life, would
a few weeks later, when he had for
gotten bis danger and his fear, decide
to sue me for the value of the cut
And then Teddy departed. And the
people are still pondering over his
words to ascertain whether there is
wisdom or folly in them. But there
were some who spoke, and said:
"Though ve receive- help when the
house is burning, we do not promise
the firemen, as a reward, all that the
house contains, nor when our ship in
distress is sated do we promise our
rescuers all the cargo."
And then the assembly dispersed
and the priests and the scribes and
the multitudes went their several

Building Plana Delayed.
Springfield, Aug. 9. Following a con
ference yesterday between Governor
Deneen, Adjutant General Dickson, the
state board of administration and
heads of the various state institutions,
it was decided on the advice of Gov-j
ernor to construct only half of the
new building for which the forty-seventh
general assembly made appropri
ations. This decision was reached so
that there might not be an unusual In
crease in the tax rate. The ground for
the armories of the Second and Eighth
regiments at Chicago and for armories
at Quincy, Aurora and Woodstock will
be purchased this year and the build
ings constructed next year. The site
for the new penitentiary at Joliet, for
which the legislature appropriated
$400,000, will also be purchased. It was
decided to construct only two of the
new buildings at the University of
Illinois, Champaign. These will be
the School of Commerce, to cost $125,
000, and the armory.to cost $100,000.
If the plans for the woman's building,
which is to cost $125,000, are com
pleted before those of the armory, that
building will be erected instead. The
new hospital building, to cost $50,000,
and the new assembly hall, to cost
$25,000, which were included in the
appropriation for the Watertown hos
pital for the insane, are among those
not to he erected this year.
Charms of Labrador.
People are not apt to think of Labra
dor as a particularly delightful land
to dwell in. No tourist thinks of going
there for a summer vacation. Yet 11
Mr. H. H. Prichard's Impressions,
gathered while hunting big game, are
to be accepted. Labrador possesses
charms of scenery that It would be dif
ficult to match elsewhere In. the world.
The words that he quotes from Salta
tha, a "Yellow knife Indian." best in
dicate the nature of these scenes:
"You say the kingdom of heaven Is
good, my father, but tell me. Is It
better than the land of the musk ox
in summer, when the lakes are some
times misty and sometimes blue, and
the loons cry often? That is good, my
father, and if heaven is better I shsll
be willing to dwell there until 1 axu

My son, when you speak of the work you do. there's something to keep in mind;
No matter how little it pleases you, don't call it "the daily grind.
Don't te!I of the tasks that you dislike, nor grumble at sorry fate
There never was work set to our hands that we had a right to hate;
It isn't the work; it isn't the hire; nor toiling from sun to sun
That counts in l!:-; eyrs of them who see it's "how is the labor doneV
As soon as you say it's a daily grind, that moment you hate your worx.
That moment the imp of indolence shows you how you well may shirk;
That moment you lose all your good intent; that moment you ought to quit.
For the work that you do is a friend to you while you are a friend to it
And once you have called it a slavish task and named it "the daily grind,
Your work is a snare that will catch your feet and caue you to fall behind.
My son, when you work you must finish your task; you must finish that task alone.
And work that is done with a friendly hand will change to a stepping stone,
WiH carry you over the barring stream or out of the clinging slough
And lift you to where you may put your hand on the work that you want to do
It will help you along to the heights you seek, will bring you unto your goal
But when you declare it's "the da3y grind," it will grind you both heart and soul

Her Novel By Gwendolen Whiting.
Copyrighted, 1911. by Associated Liter ry Frei
Archie Trevor had permitted him
self to be drawn into an affair with
a woman whom it would not be desir
able for him to marry.
Mr. Trevor made up his mind to
leave the city in which he resided, re
main iii hiding for awhile, then take
up his abode in another place. The
summer season was coming on, ena
bling htn to go to the country, remain
there till fall, then turn up in the city
of his new residence.
For his temporary abode he selected
a secluded spot on Lake II., among
beautiful hills. He had artistic tastes
that he desired to cultivate, and there
were many vistas about the lake that
would bear being transferred to can
vas. The place was not a summer re
sort, and he was unlikely to meet any
one who knew hiru. He would pass
under the name of Brown so that if
his presence was reported among those
sojourning in the rural districts his
identity would be concealed.
For two or three days after his ar
rival at the Coventry inn, where he
took up his abode, be felt very well
satisfied with himself. To be good
was a new sensation with him. and
he rather enjoyed it He did more
or less daubing, but he had very little
artistic talent and his copies of beau
tiful scenes in the neighborhood would
never have been recognized for the
One morning while he was sketching

cated that she was city bred she car
ried a silk parasol covered with ex
pensive lace came sauntering down
The lady, having literary tastes, was
endeavoring to make a name for her
self in belles-lettres. She bad about
as much talent for scribbling as Mr.
Brown had for painting. But she had
submitted a number of her effusions
to her intimate friends, all of whom
told her that she was a genius. She
bad therefore determined to bury ber
self for the summer among woods and
waters to gain the inspiration of soli
tude and write a noveL
The moment she saw Archie Trevor
his face struck ber as familiar. Then
it came to her that she had seen his
photograVure in an art Journal, and
lastly she remembered that this like
ness t was that of a celebrated artist
Had Archie been a nobody not even
their lonely surroundings would have
induced her to break conventional city
rules by speaking to him. But recog
nizing him. as she supposed, for a
genius and feeling that freemasonry
which exists among geniuses, barring
jealousy, she stood behind him and
looked at his picture.
"Excuse me. sir." she said, "but I am
a great admirer of tbe fine arts, espe
cially painting. That bit of farm vista
Is beautifuL The pi!e of hay in the
center looks so rural !"
"Too are mistaken in that pile of
bay, replied Brown, rising and pull
ing off bis little felt top covering. "It
is a pond."

the critic, "What peculiar methods

you use for producing effects! Now

"That is a boy in a punt"
"Another impressionist method. The
light struck the paint glaringly. From
this point 1 see what you intend."
Archie remained silent
"I should not have known' you had I
not seen a picture of you." continued
"A picture of me!"
"Yes, just before coming to the conn
try." Archie knit his brows. Could his
disappearance have caused a commo
tion? Had his picture been published
for his identification? Surely the wo
man he was trying to break with
would not descend to that
"I coufess," said the girl, "that 1.

to get away from the world."
"But bow in the world did you get

"Oh. yon men of genius can't con
ceal yourselves. Your very presence
bespeaks a difference from other
"Men of genius."'
"How clever you are in your method
of throwing one off the track? That
look of surprise is very well fel;rned."
Archie heaved a siti of relief. Evi
dently the girl had mistaken him for
some one else.
"You say yon are incog.," he ven
tured. "May I ask the reason for
your not wishing to be known?"
"I don't mean that I am passing un

rouiitry to write fiction. I am Irene

that Irene Iddleston was a great nov

was staying so that he could find It

after her with a puzzled expression.
"Well, I'll be Jinged!"
He sat down on his three legged
stool and tried to go on painting. But
fc,e was preoccupied with the girt.

"I have it She's a detective!"
There was no other explanation.

Iddleston would try and get some
J compromising ttvidence from him that
would serve a purpose tn a breach or

wary and if possible pay the detective
in her own coin that is. if she pur-
had no idea of doing that.
But curiosity prevented bis staying
One day. passing the farmhouse
where she stopped, he saw her sitting
on the porch driving a pent Sheers
of manuscript were scattered about
A click of the gate caused her to look
"Oh. Mr. Brown." she exclaimed
gushingly, "how good of you to come
to 6ee me! How honored I feel to re
ceive a visit from a celebrated artist

"Taffy!" muttered Trevor to himself.
"They say," she continued, "that the
pen and the brush usually go together.
Have you never written anything?"
"Nothing but letters," replied Trevor,
with a cunning look.
"Letters! Oh. do let me see some of
them. I love to read the letters of lit
"I have a few that I once wrote a
woman whom I thought I loved. After
a little spat between us she returned
"The very thing I need for a rart
of my novel that I am now working
upon. In them I shall get that gen
uine feeling we novelists find it diffi
cult if not Impossible to imitate."
Trevor breathed hard. All doubt that
Miss Iddleston had been sent to in
veigle him Into surrendering certain
letters he had written and fortunately
recovered was set at rest An idea
struck him. The hest defense against
a woman is the opposite of fighting
her that is, making love to her. He
would outwit her in this way. It did
not occur to him that by so doing he
would get another affair on his hands.
Men never really use their reasons
about women. They think they do,
but they are under the influence of
their feelings instead.
Trevor was an attractive fellow, and
since he was to Miss Iddleston a cele
brated artist he had only to say a few
houeyed words and look at her in a
melancholy, yearning way to achieve
a complete victory. He was not fool
enough to give her the letters he had
written to another woman- that affair
was passed so far as any tender feel
ing was concerned. Instead, he wrote
letters to Miss Iddleston direct. It
wasn't necessary for him to write her,
for he could see her every day, but
she said she needed these letters in
her work, so he consented to write a
few for ber. He intended to refrain
from committing himself in any of
them, but a man's letters to a woman
may be interpreted to mean more than
he intends, and he is apt to grow in
cautious. Trevor had been through
the mill before and should have known
better. He did know bettor. The
trouble was not in what he knew, but
what he did.
A very curious condition existed be
tween Mr. Trevor and Miss Iddleston
just before their separation at the end
of the summer. Mr. Trevor had treut
ed her as a spy and had taken moans
to outwit her as such. She considered
him a famous artist and an honorable
man, whereas he had never achieved
anything remarkable and was hiding
from a woman he feared.
Then sudiltMiIy her eyes were opened
to the fact that he had been entirely
mistaken in the authoress. Some
friends came to see her whom Trevor
met, and he became aware that she
was n eminently respectable young
woman and very hielilv connected
What was w to do? Confess? Con
fess what? That be bud taken ber
for a detective. Suppose he should

pression that he was a great nrtist.
