That the present high tariff on sugar
is costing the American people two

, annually, according to C. A. Sprerkles,
president of the Federal Sugar Refin

I the trust?
I That only $32,000,000 of this amount
is annually collected by the govern

' That practically no American labor
is employed in the beet sugar fields of j
the western states? ;
That the per capita consumption of;

means an exaction from each family i
of five persons of $S.40 annually as a(

That the purchasing power of a dol-

That the cost of production has no

That the people of our western states i

.liuk Prole, galloping in from the
Twin Star mn-h, halted his horse iu
front of the Red Spider Opera House
nd mopped his heated brow as he read
the announcement on the tun board.
"I'll be durueii:" he ejaculated, with
supplement of verbal pyrotechnic
calculated to scorch the offending bill
poster. A soft little roUe whipped
him around In the saddle to stare down
at a pale, pretty little girl who wns
watching him with auxious bine eyes.

"I'm sorry," said the child, with a
little tired smile. "That's what every
body says. I wish Mr. Hemls had
picked out soie other play that folks
would want to come and see."
"Who's Mr. Bemls?" demanded Jink
Prole, with sudden suspicion.
"He's the manager of the company.
He plays Lawyer Marks. I'm I.ittle
Eva," she explained proudly.
"Ho. ho!" Jink blinked rapidly. "So
you're Little Eva. eh? Well. I reckon
you'll make n right pretty one too.
Where's your ma. L'vaY"
"She's in there getting ready for the
parade. Mother's Ella."
Jink threw one spurred boot over the
pommel of his saddle and rested his
chin In his gloved hand. "Where's
your dad? He playing L'ncle Tom. eh?"
"Oh, no; father's dead. There's Just
us two. and mother hates It all. but we
have to work to take care of each

I'll shoot him as full of holes ns a

"Oh, you are the tvst man I ever

and down with excitement "Now. I

"Well, you can bpy just as many

because I like you and you are so

Then, as the hot went around the

faced the room. !lis customary self
; consciousness vanished with the sln

tDe hearted audience thrilling with
eagerness to help the little band of
j strolling players.

money to get thar. If we buy up the
house, why. they'll all buy tickets home
again and there'll be one less of that
l'ncle Tom outfit to aggravate ns. see?"
They saw. and said so vociferously.
"That there Little Fvn and her ms,

"They want to get back to Ohio to

Shall we send 'em home?"
There was a chorus of affirmative.
And now came the most Interesting In
cident of the meal, for as each man
took one or more tickets he solemnly

interviewing the different member of

arose that night each one had a sum of

wherever that was. Little Eva aud -her

the happiest among the lot.
It was n performance long to bo
