nno US children there was a rayste
rlous charm about old Mr. Uplook.
He used to spend a good deal of his
time in the back part of his shop, turn
ing bits of mahoguny Into little bouts
and telling us stories while he chipped
and polished, llo had a small person
In his throat whom ho called 1'edro,
and ho would make him grunt out an
swers to our questions In a wonderful
manner. Ills vest buttons were con
nected with several Insects, and when
wo touched them there would come
out now a bee, then a mosquito, and
once In n while a bug that would
snup off our noses. The buzzing of
the bee, tho piping of tho mosquito,
and tho dangerous assault of tho snap
bug gave us many a thrill and him
Ono Chrlstmus time, being rather
short of rich relatives and very long
on hope, wo conceived the Idea of
drawing upon tho fairy resources of
our good friend, by suggesting a but
ton that would connect with the good
genius of the holidays and bless our
wishes. So wo asked Mr. Uplook If
he thought tho first two buttons on his
coat could by any possibility have any
thing to do with the Christmas case.
Ho said that ho would have to go Into
his back room and seo about It llrst,
but when ho canio out wo knew by
his looks that It would bo nil right.
We wunted to press the buttons sev
eral times, but Mr. Uplook thought
that once would be enough, and suld
that In each case wo might whisper
two desires, whispering loud enough
for him to hear, so that he might be
sure we were getting the thing
straight. So we pressed and wills
perrxl In that perfect faith that Mr.
Upluok always Inspired In us.

Washington. I'resldent Ilurillng, in
his annual mcssuge, delivered to Con
gress In person, deals with nearly a
score of subjects, chief nuiong them
prohibition, farm credits, the transpor
tation problem, child labor and Immi
gration. President Harding tackled first Hie
funu problem, recommending credit
legislation by enlarging the powers of
the farm loun bourd to provide ample
agricultural and live stock "production
The executive announced his pur
pose to Invite the governors of the
stutes and territories to an nirly con
ference with the federal executive au
thority with a view to udoptlng defi
nite policies of national and state co
operation In administering the prohi
bition luws. He mi the day Is un
likely to come when the prohibition
amendment will he repealed and that
the nation should adopt Its course ac
cordingly. Ho warned those who evade the pro
hibition law they are undermining Un
moral fiber of tho republic.
Ho characterized the present en
forcement ns "u nationwide scundul"
and "the most demoralizing fuctor of
our national life."
More extended rredlt for the farm
ers Is strongly urged by the executive,
who declares that the tery proof of
helpfulness already given Is the strong
est urgument for the permanent estab
lishment of widened credits. He says
the farm loan bureau may well have
Its powers enlarged to provide ample
farm production credits, us well as en
larged land credits.
More Credit for Farmers.
Two constitutional amendments ure
proposed. One would give Congress
authority over child lubor nnd the oth
er would restrict the Issue of tux-ox

be "drying up tho sources of federal
taxation and encouraging unproductive
and extravagant expenditures by stutes
Registration of Aliens.
Enactment of legislation providing
for registration of aliens and for more
thorough exumlr.utlon of emigrants at
the ports of embarkutlon is urged. The
President says there Is u "recrudes
cence nf hyphenated Americanism
which we thought to have been
stumped out when we committed the
nation, life nnd soul In the World
Wur," and adds that ndvocutes of rev
olution nrc abusing the hospitality of
American shores', "finding their delud
ed followers among thoM! who take on
the habllumcnts of an American with
out knowing an American soul."
Registration of nllens, the President
adds, will enable tho nation to guard
agulnst abuses In Immigration, check
ing the undesirables whose Irregular
coming Is his first violation of the law
and, ut the sume time, will facilitate
the needed Americanizing of those
who meun to enroll as citizens.

Harding tells Congress Unit American
relations are not only free from every
threatening cloud, hut the country has
contributed Its "larger Influence" to

ecutlve also proposes that the law re

Calls Attention to Readjustments,
Tk President began his address by
culling the ut'entlon of Congress to
general world conditions, which, he
said, still were seriously disturbed ns
ii result of the war. He asserted that
"the Inevitable readjustment of tho so
cial and economic order is not moro
than barely begun," und continued:
"There never again will he precise

one who thinks It to be desirable. For
