Those Seven-Cent Meals.
Tho women of tho Chicago School
of Domestic Arts and Sciences think
they have found tho solvent of tho
high cost of living in a meal they say
ciin bo Borvod for 7 cents a plate,
with' this menu:
Ono loaf of homo-mado bread, 2 ccnta.
Mutton and vcKetablen cnciimscrolo, 5
Steamod jlco. C centx, '
Brcud pudding ctmtard, 10 cunU.
That might not strike no mo men of
voracious appetites ub altogether
bountiful, and yet tho cost Is inoro,
undoubtedly, than n good many fam
ilies now pay, or aro able to pay, and
much less than a good many other
families would think of trying to
niako out on. Seven cents a plato
would bo 28 cents a meal for a family
of four, 84 conts a day, $G,81 a wook,
or $25.18 a month, which nnyono
knows la more than many families of
four pay out.
Tho good women muy fix upall tho
menus they plonao; thero is nothing
to' stop them, but they are not likely
to alter conditions very much by it,

tastes as both to quality and quantity

Congress on His Hand, .
Prcsldent-oloct Wilson evidently
bbliovoa ho has felt tho pulse of his
party sufficiently to Justify him in
calling an extra BeBslon of congress
immediately nftor his inauguration.
Tho pulso spoke rather loudly and
emphatically through many of tho
loaders, especially Speaker Champ
Clark, who boldly declared, tho day
bofore Dr. Wilson announcod his de
cision, that nn extra session wbb pre
requisite to tho redemption of plat
form pledges- made by tho democrats
In tho hq campaign. From tho
standpoint of consistency OiIb posi
tion seema. to be unassailable.
Whether tho country demands demo
cratic tariff tinkering or uot, it
elected the democrats by a minority
voto and has a right to expect thorn
to mako good on their promises. . So
tho now president's troubles will
beglu March 4.
Grover Cleveland's utterance, "I
havo congress on my hands," so full
of solemn meaning, became an adage.
The adage has lost none of its forco
in the experience of President Taft.
No wonder President-elect Wilson
wished to proceed cautiously In stat
ing lils intention as to nn extra ses
sion for tariff reform. Being some
thing of an historian, be 1b ablo to re
call with vivid appreciation the ox
porlonces of other men with preclpt

Poor Girls and Education.
Tho feminine president of an east
ern Bchool for girls makes tho re
markable statement that "no girl can
servo two masters her college and
her pocketbook," meaning alio cannot
work her way through collego with
t0 h(,T education. "Self-educa
tion," ns this MIbh President torniB it,
moans Inadequate physical austonanco
to tho young woman attempting It
and tnorelorp despoils the advantages
of her schooling.
But mnny young women, at least in
smaller Institutions In tho west, havo
worked and aro working their way
through collego. Havo tho results
with them been such ns to Justify thla
disparagement? It ,is oxtromely
doubtful. It is very common for
young mon to earn their way, and if
they can do it, why not young womon,
many of whom, as we havo said, do?
Doea anyone supposo a girl with
the grit to work her way through col

SECULAR SHOTS AT PULPIT.

Baltimore American: Instead of a

Boston Transcript; President-elect Wil
son has been likened to many other men,
Joseph Chamberlain among them, but it
remained for tho Princeton clergyman
to discover his resemblanco to'Habakkuk.
This will perhaps hasten moro democrats
Own usual to iv consultation of tho Old
Testament, and even thero they may not
find tho satisfaction they seek. Habakkuk
was tho eighth of the minor prophets,
but it Is said of him that "concerning his
llfo absolutely nothing of him is known."
There Is a legend, however, that he was
ordered to carry food to Daniel in the
lion's den and, to enable him to obey, an
angel took him by the hair of his head
and transported him to Babylon. We
hardly think Mr. Wilson's hair would
stand tho strain.
MltYAN AND TUB CABINET.
Will lie Sncrtflcc Present Inde
pendent Position f
Of course, Mr. Bryan does not want a
cabinet position. Thrico candidate for
tha presidency, and with a lingering hopo
that even --yet his ambition may bo re
alized, Mr. Bryan probably regards a
cabinet office as beneath his dignity.
Besides this, he wnnts to be in an Inde
pendent position. He 1ms a newspaper
through which ho can disseminate his
vluws, nnd he does not hesitate to expreea
his mind. Thero are many things which
he will want to say during the next four
years, and a portfolio would bind him
hand and foot. Above all, Mr. Bryan
Itkes to mako money, and why should he
sacrifice the remunerative lecture plat
form for the paltry honor of official title''
So Mr. Bryan, being wise In his day and
generation, will not enter President Wil
son's cabinet, fhero aro other things for
him to do.

When Greece, her knee In suppllance
Should trcmblo nt his power;
In dreams, through camp and court, ho

Thero had the Persian's thousands stood,
On old Plataea'a day;
And nowhere breathed that haunted air
Tho sons of sires who conquered there,
With arm to strike and soul to dare,
As quick, as far, as they.
An hour passed on; tho Turk awoko;
That bright dream was his last;
He woke, to hear his sentries shriek,
"To arms! they como! the Groeltl tho

And shout, and g.-oan, and saber stroke.
And death-shots falling thick nnd fast

And heard, with volco as trumpet loud,

"Strike till the lust armed foe expires 1
Strike for your altars and your fires!
Strike for the green graves of your sires,
