Stranded Actors and the Cause.
The report that there are 1,500 ac

does not mean, necessarily, that the
theatrical profession Is being over

Times. A very large majority of
players of recognized standing are
hard at work; if they could be In two
places at once, there would still be
work for thera to do. Even the more

Protection and Immigration.
Hlgn protectionists always address
their appeals to farmers and working-
men. "High tariff,"- they argue,
"means high nrices for farm products
an(j nlj;n wages for the workers."
Last year 145,000 American farmers
all of whom were supposed to be en
joying the fruits of a high tariff, left
this country and went to Canada. In
the same period approximately a mil
lion laborers came to this country
from abroad, 81 per cent of them com
ing from the south of Europe, where
wages are low, education almost noth
ing, and standards of living primitive
and filthy. These laborers are taken
in by the trusts at wages but little
better than they get at home, and
under conditions of employment un
thinkable to American worklngmen.
Thus the high tariff drives out good
American farmers, and brings in

Springfield, Jan. 11. Revision of
the state laws governing drainage of
farm lands was demanded at the sec

Comment From Capital
BY CLYDE H. TAVENNER.. .
(Special Correspondence of The Argus.)
Washington, Jan. 7. President Taft
has just taken an action which is
worth millions of dollars to the paper
trust, by refusing to permit the free
entry of print paper and wood pulp
from Germany, Sweden and other
countries justly entitled to that con
cession. When the reciprocity bill was pass
ed a provision was tacked to it pro
viding for the free admission of print
paper and wood pulp from Canada.
It was so arranged that this provision
became law whether the reciprocity
act was agreed to by Canada or not.
Therefore print paper and wood pulp
are now admitted free from Canada.
MADE STRONG ARGUMENT.
As soon as this provision became a
law, Germany, Sweden and other
countries asked to be allowed to also
send print paper and wood pulp into
the United States free of duty.
"We have treaties with you," de
clared these nations to the United
States, "Providing that you are to ex
tend the same concessions to us that
you extend to any other nation. There
fore, since you allow Canada to send
in these articles free of duty, we,
under the most favored nations' clause,
are justly entitled to the same rights."
Obviously, this argument is un
answerable. However, the president has just an
nounced, through the treasury depart
ment, that duties will be collected as
heretofore on all print paper Imported
from any other country than Canada.
The announcement was made after
Mr. Taft had consulted with Secretary
of State Knox and Attorney General

the European nations to the customs
court of appeals, which, it is declared,
is only a subterfuge.
YET CONCEDES JUSTICE.
President Taft has declared he ia
willing to concede the justice of de
mands for cheaper paper, but when
the opportunity offers, his act refutes
his words and promises and shows
that he is against giving even the
slightest concession to free trade.
The tariff on print paper is to all
practical ends a tax on Intelligence,
because in this day and age the great
mass of the people receive their edu
cation on public questions through the
newspapers. With print paper practi
cally controlled by a trust, the price
has been systematically boosted, so as
to work hardship on the prosperous
publishers, and to make print paper
nigh on to prohibitive to many of
the small country publishers, whose
earnings are not any too great at best.
BILL. WORTH NOTHING.
Meanwhile there is pending a bill
introduced by Senator Heyburn, which
proposes to repeal the Canadian reci
procity act. Having been rejected by
Canada, the law is dead without be
ing repealed. But if the act is repealed
the live added section providing for
free print paper and wood pulp would
also be repealed, and the old tax on
paper even from Canada would be

per and wood pulp has been repealed

Hi3 Avenger- By Clarissa Mackie.

The men of the Lone Bull ranch bad
finished supper and were gathered
about the long table over newspapers
and cards. Moat of them were smok
ing, and the air was blue with the ex
halations from ripes and cigarettes.
The Chinese cook flapped into the
room noisily. He addressed the com
pany impartially in a high, complain
"Him, Hally Bally, no come eat
chow; him sabe I keep chow velly hot
till him come alound!"
Harry Barry's seven comrades fixed
piercing eyes on the cook. Gnbriel
spoke, smothering a yawn with one
lean hand before he did so.
I guess he sabe you'll keep his sup
per hot for him, Lee. If you don't"
he paused significantly, and the wrath
ful Chinaman found seven blue muz
sled revolvers focused upon different
parts of Ms anatomy.
"Understand?" snapped Gabriel.
Lee's straw slippers flapped restless
ly on the bare floor. His frightened,
beady eyes roved from one to another
of the stern faces, ne nodded his
head like a toy mandarlu. "Yes, yes,
I sabe velly, velly much!"
You will keep Mr. Barry's supper
hot for him?"
Velly hot!" said Lee forcibly. "As
hot as" And he named the hottest
place there is.
The seven were still shaking witn
silent laughter over the episode when
there came the rapid thud of small
hoofs and the Widow Clancy slipped
from her saddle at the door and stood
"Where is Harry Barry?" she de
manded In a low. Intense voice. All
the pretty color had fled from her face,
and her pallor was enhanced by the
vivid auburn of her lovely hair.
"Where is Harry Barry?" she repeat
ed as they arose and clustered around
"We've been expecting him every
minute. He oughter been back long
ago," drawled Gabriel.
"Mebbe his horse went lame," sug
gested the Crane from the background.
One or two others offered suRgestions
as to the probable cause of Harry Bar
ry's absence even while they expected
to witness his dashing arrival at any
instant. At last they stood mutely be
fore the pale widow and waited for her
to speak again.
"You're a clever lot of fabricators!"
A look of concern came into Gabriel's
face. "You don't think he's got into any
trouble, Mrs. Clancy?" he asked quickly-
"As if you didn't know!" Her voice
trembled with grief and anger. "As if
you didn't know! What has he done
that you the men that he called his
mates, his friends yes. every one of
you what has he done that you should
string him to the tallest cottonwood at
"What!" thundered Gabriel, pushing
forward. "Harry Barry hanging
where did you say?" The seven who
loved the merry hearted comrade
whose grave danger had caused them
alarm on another occasion listened
with white faces while Mrs. Clancy
explained in a shaking voice:
"I saw biru myself. His horse was
staked under the tree. I was a qunr
ter of a mile off when I happened to
see him dangllnjr up there in the tree."
She hid her face in her hands and
shuddered. "I was looking for a lost
critter and had my fleldglasses."
"Mrs. Clancy," said Gubrlel heavily,
for he loved narry like a younger
brother, "there is some mistake. You
can count pn the seven of us to avenge
Harry If harm has come to him."
"I am his avenger," said Mrs. Clancy
coldly. "I want you seven to come
along with me."
The seven silently obeyed more from
pity for the agitated woman than be
cause they were fearful of her threats.
narry Barry's comrades were grief
stricken at the dlsnster that hod over
taken their friend'. What could he
have done to have merited the severest
penalty of that unprotected country,
where Justice is swiftly meted out
wherever it is outraged, with the dome
of heaven for a courtroom and the vic
tims for Judge and Jury?
Crane, who was leading the file,
turned and spoke to Gabriel, who was
next. "You remember once before we
was hauled out to save Harry, the time
when we got the letter about the Last
"Sure," returned Gabriel, "and we
found thnt the Last nope was the na me
of a mine he'd discovered. Mebbe
there ain't anything in this either." ne
smiled hopefully. .
The Widow Clancy's voice came
nervously shrill from the rear. "Laugh,
will yon?" she cried. "One of yon
laugh again and I'll p-put a a b-bul-let
through y-y-you!" She sudden
ly broke into tears and bowed her
head on the neck of her pony. Gabriel
was beside her in an instant.
"You're mistaken, Mrs.' Clancy," he
said soothingly. "We was only re
membering that narry scared us once
before. You rememler we've told yon
about the Last Hope mine and how
we rode all night chasing that boy,
only to find him alive and well at the
end of the trip, and we can't help but
think there's some mistake now and
that Harry can't be done away with."
"But I saw him!" cried jthe widow
plaintively. "I saw him there, his
head drooping. Oh, it was awful!"
"We think we're sure that he
wouldn't do one of the things he'd
have to hang for," was Gabriel's ear
"Of course lie wouldn't!" Mrs. Clan
cy lifted her tear stained face and
turned drenched blue eyes upon him.
Gabriel was relieved. To see the
spuiiky little widow giving way to
grief was so foreign to her disposition
that be was alarmed.
"Mebbe you'd like to wait here while
we go and investigate." be suggested,
but the widow was firm in her deter
mination to be on the soot.
"You ain't used to such scenes,
ma'am," protested Crane mildly, for
they had paused to discuss the quea
"I may as well get used to it if it
kills me," declared Mrs. Clancy, and
then, fixing glowing eyes upon each in
turn, she said earnestly: "I want yon
to understand I appreciate you've been
good friends to me ever since I came
from the east, and I know you've al
ways been good friends to Harry, but if
I'm convinced that his being up there is
your fault why, why, the whole seven
of you will bang for it if I have to do
it myself!" The widow looked per
fectly capable of engineering any num
ber of lynohlngs at that moment.
Absurd as was the situation from one
point of view, there was the tragedy
in the background, and it was a grave
ly preoccupied party that swung
around the last hill as the sun dropped
its lower rim below the horizon.
A yellow shaft of sunlight struck
the cottonwoods, and from the tallest
one something dangled from a stout
"Don't you look, ma'am wait tin we
come back," commanded Gabriel with
endden authority, and he pressed a
flask Into her hand.
The brave hearted little widow sud
denly lost courage and bowed her
head once more on the neck of her
When the seven pounded to a stand
still under the cottonwood tree they
slipped from their saddles and hesitat
ed. Harry Barry's roan horse whin
nied sharply, and then, apparently
from the air above them, came a fam
iliar voice, peevish, as if from long
"Don't stand staring like Idiots! I'm
plumb tired out hanging up here!" it
The seven turned awed looks upon
ene another, and as by one accord the
youngest and strongest, the two Lew
ises, Jim and Tim, sprang toward the
tree and fairly spurred their way up
into the lower branches, from which
they mounted higher. Then there came
the sound of several voices raised in
inquiry, explanation and direction.
After awhile three men came down
the tree instead of the two who had
climbed np. The third man was Harry
Barry, and the others were helping
him, for his limbs seemed stiff and
his face was quite pale. He smiled
as cheerily as ever as they gathered
"Another one on me," he grinned
sheepishly when they had administer
ed restoratives to him. "I was coming
back from dosing the sick critter,
when I took a notion to climb that
there tree and look around the land
and see if there was anybody I knew
sashaying around laugh if yon
wanter!" he said as a knowing smile
went the round of the group.
"I went up in the tree, and I looked,
and I thought I saw way off an old
friend of mine" (he showed all his
white teeth), "and so I was in a hurry
to get down, and my heel caught in a
crooked little branch, and I fell ker
plunk till a handy little stump of a
broken limb caught hold of my belt,
and there I hung as fine as silk. That
was all beautiful and nice, only, genta,
it was so that there was a sharp
little prongy branch sticking out of
the tree right behind my shoulders,
and I couldn't move hand or foot with
out ketchlng It like a knife, so there I
hung till I went to sleep a while back.
When I woke up I was all numb and
cold from banging there. I'm feeling
better now, thanks. Next thing I
knew I heard you fellers coming and
seen you out the corner of my eye."
They examined the small ragged tear
in Harry's shirt between his shoulder
blades, and they saw that the flesh
was red and bruised from the tortur
ing branch that had pierced it.
"You had a narrer escape," said
"I guess you won't get to breaking
no laws now," Joked Hem Wayland.
"You've somehow got a taste of what
a necktie party feels like when you're
the guest of honor."
Crane had ridden ahead to break the
good news to Mrs. Clancy, and Gabriel
suddenly vaulted into bis saddle and
wheeled about. "We chaps better be
making for the Lone Bull. Lee's keep
ing your Bupper hot for you, narry!"
"And there's a lndy waiting around
the corner for you," ndded Jim Lewis
over his shoulder as he followed Crane.
"A lady who ah!" The question
died on narry Barry's lips as the Wid
ow Clancy's little pony dashed toward
the cottonwood tree, bearing a slender,
erect figure, with an aureole of au
burn hair and dancing blue eyes. There
was no lack of color in her cheeks
as she saw the stalwart form of
"Gosh! Let's gpt out of this!" gasped
Jim Lewis as he followed the rest of
the seven in their mad dash to escape
the tender scere that would follow.
"Let's go home and see Lee has sup
per plenty hot for them," suggested
Gabriel, and soon the faithful seven
were dim dots on the twlllt plain.
