Atlantic i city,', that' happy-go-lucky, do-as-you-pllease resort,', has at lasti taOcen a stantd. If has banished from its boartdwalk the,' snort shirt. Right overUnto, the ocean it pushed the flow ing collar and the latest innovation in men's! wear t has been idrowned. It has gone down three times, never to be revived. No piulmoter will ever resuscitate the poor, old sport shirt. Atlantic t City which has 'Stood for al most everything from wrist watches to monocftes just could not let th sport shirtlklive. And hoav many will rise up invtheir wrath and decry against the boulevardiers- for their audacious treatment of the garment nrhinh , its wav in upon our hei darkness of the night without any Irhytme or reason? i Whereare the cohonjtsi who will rally- to the1 memory of the deceased? Where aie the legion4a theUoyal ones who wilUavenge this outrage? Let them go omto AtlanticCity, singing as they go the Hymn of Hate against those who d-esecrasted the' effervescent, bubbling, gurgling influence of the sport shirt. It is rather laste in i the . season to mourn the loss of ftthe sport shirt. It would have died a nature, death when the work of ' old Boreas got a fair start. With all due respect to its sponsors, we are not t at all loath to have it go. Comfortable - it was, or at least it locked as if it might have been easier on the neck than the starched collar. But ye godsJ it was a frightful affair.'. No bogie man could scare children properly unless garbed in the grotesque garishness of a spectacular, stupendous sport shirt. It gave to its wearer the appearance of a turtle trying" to crawl out of its shell, or of a gargoyle at' Westminster Abbey. It made the human head take on the appearance of a large sized succulent lime. It reduced all men to the same level; the banker, the butcher, the bricklayer, the bunco man; all looked alike when clad in the ' cringing, creepy, creamy, sport shirt. . t Few there are who know from whence the sport shirt came. As a matter of history it is interesting to note that the . first , sport shirt was worn by Lard Byron the great Eng lish poet and court favorite. He was the first one to popularize the flow ing collar and-its '.dramatic effect. Its flamboyant; and flabbing ends are all characteristic of .romanticism, sen timent and passion so aptly termed ByroniQ. . There have been many; gems of thought given to tha Eng lish language by Georg-e Gordon Noel, Lord Byron, but who will bless his efforts in handing to an innocent pos terity this perfidious oracle of style that should bear his name, but which has been dubbed sport shirt? Truly it takes a sport to wear one. Only the young and unsophisticated should have the temerity to clad their per sons in this garment of the seven teenth century. One naturally looks for its wearer to be bedecked with those other monstrosities, a parasol, monocle, mustache, spats, and wear ing a silk handkerchief tucked up his sleeve. Stand back, ye Romans! Dare ye not lay a finger on the men who drowned the sport shirt at At lantic City. They have done a great thing for suffering humanity. If this garment comes to the surface next year it should meet a similar fate. to of propriation meted out to !

"DANGER." s Fourteen automobiles came grief Labor Day at the corner Main and Myrtle streets where the Connecticut Company is laying double tracks. The deplorable condition of the pavement there makes it almost impossible for machines to navigate with any degree of certainity. Yes terday also witnessed a number of such hold-ups, big lumbering cars stalled in the mire. Pedestrians, too. have been discomfltted in making the journey in that Vicinity. In view of all these circumstances then, why is it not possible to place some sort of warning to travelers in that section? Machines should make a detour and avoid the treacherous trap that awaits them. Either a "Danger" pla card, or a policeman should be placed at the corner of Commercial Street This traffic officer could easily advise drivers of machines to go through Commercial Street and Center Streets into East Main and escape the bad stretch of road at Myrtle. There is already a traffic policeman at Myrtle Street and this man could be sent down to Commercial until the tracks are fixed at his old stamping grounds. The officer stationed at the head of (East Main Street could easily' warn motorists coming from the north to make the same detour. Aside from alleviating a bad condition, this order would enable the men at work on the tracks to finish their task in shorter time. With no automobiles to hinder them they should soon complete the road." With' a few: words of instruc tion; from the traffic ! officers the drivers of automobiles will save them THE CZAR'S MOVE. By placing himself in command of jail the armies of Russia, Emperor Nicholas, automatically supersedes his cousin the Grand Duke Nicholas, who hasbeen in ? command ever since the war? began. Since the beginning of the great Austro-German offensive (mowernent in May the Grand Duke :has met with serious reverses and whilel he is rated as a wonderful general there seems to have been some dissatisfaction with the way 'things 'were going. That the Em ( peror hiimself should go on the field t gives credence to the- belief that an internal icrisis has been fomenting in the heart of (Russia. The Russian de feats, on the battlefield have brought about this 'discontent. As a result the ;ruling classes of Russia are seri ously worriod over the political dis orders that have been brewing, and ; it may have been this that sent the .Fmpenorhurrying to the fr6nt. The ruling classes of Russia know this andjfknow it well. In the past, military defeat has always resulted in theybetterment of the Russian pro-' I letariait. There are some who will i assert that absolute military defeat will beUhe only thing to bring about ultimate freedom , for the Russian peopOe. To; bear out . this contention they recall h the following facts. The Serfs? were .freed after the Crimean war; the Duma was. granted after the MancOiurian war. After the present war, .predict 'these political prophets, there will be a reversion from th present i system in Russia and a more popular 'government will be instituted.1! At best the position of the Russian government is ' not as sound as the ? Czar would have it, and this may be the reason he is now goiner out to lead his troops. He would not want to see his armiies melted away over night, of trod beneath the iron heels of the invading German hordes. If he can get the nation aroused, inject more fighting spirit into the men, plan for bringing ' more munitions of war into the country, it is believed, the Czar will grant any concessions the people may ask. He has already .decided to appoint ten non-bureau- crats as cabinet ministers five to be members of the Imperial Council and five in the Duma. The latter will represent the various classes of Rus sia and their opinions and will be part of the new cabinet with those of the upper house. This indeed would-be the first approach to a par liamentary form of government. All of the aforementioned may have something to do with the Em peror taking charge of his armies. It is known that the Russian people are greatly discontented with the manner in which the ruling classes are running things and place the blame for the poor showing - of the armies on their shoulders. That the Russian people are harboring a dis trust for their government has been known for some time. If the Em peror in taking to the field can in any way, remedy this deplorable con dition he will do a great service for liis people.

Providence Journal. Miss Curley kept a private school, and one morning was interviewing a new pupil. "What does your father do to earn his living?" the teacher asked tho little girl- "Please, ma'am," was the prompt reply, "he doesn't live with us. My mamma supports me." "Well, then," asked the teacher, "how does your mother earn her liv ing?" "Why," replied the litte girl, in an artless manner, 'she gets paid for The Working of the Leaven. Under the title, "Medicine Man Quits With $1,000,000," the Brazil (Ind.) News for August 5 prints an interesting news item. Here it is: "Kokomo, August 5. The Cora B. Miller Medicine company, known over the country because of its extensive magazine advertisements of.a cure f6r the pomplaints of women, today dis charged its small army of stenog raphers and other employes and then closed its doors to business. The closing came as the result of a fraiid order issued recently by the post office department, which denied the use of the mails to the circular advertising matter of the company. "According to Dr. Frank Miller, who started the business twenty-five years ago, when he was practically penniless, the company will never again do business. Miller is now worth from $900,000 to $1,000,000. "For the first twenty years of the business, there was no interruption, and the money poured into the cof fers.of the company from women of the country. Four years ago, how ever, the government took exception to the use of the name Cora B. Miller in connection with the advertisng, in asmuch as Mrs. Miller had no con nection with the company, and the firm was forced to change names. "The change marked a turning point in the affairs of the company, and .when recently the government brought a fraud order against the company, Miller decided to quit 'the business. Miller is the largest holder of real estate in Kokomo." The Cora B. Miler fraud was ex posed in The Journal of the Ameri can Medical association for July 23, 1910, and the matter reprinted and widely circulated in pamphlet form. The newspaper quoted above credits the failure of the Miller concern to the fact that the federal authorities caused it to change its name from "Mrs. Cora B. Miller" to "Miller Medicine company." That this change probably had something to do with the decline of the business is doubt less, true.. Another agency, however, has been at work and tended to make the Miller fraud less profitable. A good many thousand reprints of The Journal's expose have been circulated. The public generally, and especially the feminine part of it, has been wholesomely awakened to the wretch ed swindles that have been, and still are, perpetrated on it by "patent medi cine" fakers. The American Medi cal association, therefore, may cer tainly take some of the credit for bringing about the consummation that resulted in Miller retiring from his fraudulent trade. And here we have one more explanation of the fact that certain individuals froth at the mouth whenever the American Medical asso ciation and The Journal are mentioned. selves blown out tires and stalled; engines by avoiding the corner of I stayin away from . father" Argo Myrtle and Main Streets. I naut .' - - - - - .. - Hats Off Again. (Hartford Courant.) "Honor to whom honor is due!" If the public press of the country. Ir respective af party affiliations, reflects the opinion and feeling of the people of our country, they, whether of this, that, or the other political party be lieve that honor, in great measure, is due and should be given to their President for what he has accom plished in the difficulties and dangers arising out of our relations and dif ferences with Germany. From all available sources of information come clear indications, if not positive assur ances, that the people, of all parties and classes, with a consent approach ing to unanimity, approve the course pursued by the president in this mat ter, rejoice in the success which has crowned his endeavors and acclaim his wisdom and triumph with grati tude and praise. Even Mr. Roosevelt is corr ' ained to Join the chorus thougl iterjecting a few "ifs" which are toe unimportant to create dis cordance, and prudently withdraws to Canada in pursuit of other than politi cal game. There are no "ifs" or "buts" in this business worth mentioning. 'If minor mistakes have been committed, the whole business has been wisely trans acted and triumphantly concluded to the honor of the President, to the sat isfaction of our people, and in a lesser degree to the welfare if not the gratification of Germany. The right has been quietly, patiently, cour teously, but firmly insisted upon with a surprising success. Those messages dispatched from Washington to Ber lin, ridiculed by some as harmless literary compositions, have somehow proved to be no less practically effec tive than finished in form and style. Perhaps we were deceived as to the point of those diplomatic weapons by their very polish. Straightforward and midway betwen a -clamoring and blustering jingoism on the one . hand, and a flabby namby-pambyism on the other hand, the wise, the safe, the sure course has been pursued, and tha, ; result is not merely a signal diplomat ic victory, redounding to the "honor of the President, but a triumph of righteousness and of peace. War or anything like war, with Germany or with any other foreign power,1 would have been unspeakably deplorable, not to say disastrous. And yet the clouds of strife, if not of ac tual warfare, were darkly visible in the eastern horizon. These clouds have van shed, that peril has been averted, if the assurances of the German government are to be believed and we reasonably hope they will not reappear. Our whole great nation re joices in its experience of relief. We are not a pugnacious but a peaceful people, and, more than that, a patient and forbearing people not easily provoked to wrath and violence. The small minority of our citizens who would welcome war have sustained a crushing rebuke and are, for the time being sullen but fiilent. The nations near and far are advised that the United States will not and cannot re sort tQ arms, except in self-defence, or- when all possible and honorable ; means of ' averting or avoiding war i have been exhausted. That is the high and commanding position which we, as a nation, occupy today. . That this is so is not due to President Wilson, nor to any one man nor to any few men among us but to the dominant good sense and general sanity of the people themselves, who abhor war, ap preciate the blessings of peace, and cannot be swept from" their moorings by any gusts of passion or pretext. But it is true that Mr. Wilson, himself a peace-lover and a peacemaker, has clearly divined and sagaciously trusted the spirit and temper of the people whose President he is. Mexico is another story, as yet "to be continued." But as to that just now concluded, when William Howard Taft doffs his cap and salutes the President with cardial congratula tions no patriotic republican need be afraid, ashamed, or reluctant to fol low his distinguished r example. Mr. Taft's act is a signal, "Hats off to the President." The Unbroken Rule. (Philadelphia Ledger.) In Washington there is a club where playing cards for money and various other things is forbidden. But on one accasion recently four friends who wished to have a quiet game of bridge decided that there would be no harm in a slight departure from the regulations. Having found a retired corner, they had commenced to play when one of' them noticed that a waiter who was near was observing them. Wishing to avoid further disclosure, he called the waiter and said: "William, I know you will not con sider it your duty to inform against Us. I presume that ere now you have seen the rules broken." "Sir," said the waiter gravely. "I have been in the service of this club for some years but have never yet given any such information, although I have seen all the rules broken but one." "And what is that one rule?" "That of feeing the waiters, sir." He got his tip. Why Alexander Wept. (Youth's Companion.) The teacher, was telling his clas3 about the conquests of Alexander the Great. He made the tale a stirring one, and at last reached the conquest of India. Wishing to impress the children, he said: "When Alexander bad conquered India, what do you think he did Do you think he gave a great feast to celebrate his triumph? No, he sat down and wept." The children seemed to be a little disappointed at this childish exhibi tion on the part of the hero; so the teacher continued: "Now, why do you think Alexander wept?" he asked. Up went a little hand; but when its owner saw it was the only one in view, he hurriedly withdrew It. "Come on now, Tommy,v said the teacher in his most persuasive voice, "why do you think Alexander wept?" "Maybe it was because he didn't know the way back home," Tommy answered. What Guerilla Warfare Means. (Meriden Record.) The happenings along the Mexican border these days are giving coni siderable food for thought to those who are following the trend of events They illustrate beyond peradventure the kind of tragedies, on a whole sale scale, witn which the people of the United States would get acquaint ed in the event of intervention by this -country. Many people have an idea that the pacification of Mexico could be ef fected by walking in, turning round, and walking out again. No one who is acquainted with history or has any knowledge of the country and its peo pie is laboring under any such de lusion. It is because there are many who know the price the United States would have to pay in blood and treasure, that there has not been greater opposition tc the "watchful waiting" scheme. Man to man, there is absolutely no comparison between an American soldier and that which masquerades under the name of s-oldier in Mex ico. But in the event of war it would not be a case of man for man. The kind of warfare in which the Mexi cans would engage would mean end less time and energy to combat. Of real battle the Mexicans know little, but they are masters of the guerilla warfare in which their country aids them in contour and climate. Against these factors the United States troops would have to wrestle and the strug gle would be long and bloody. tral is ungrateful and criticism is bound to come from some quarter whatever stand is taken. Just be cause the United States refuses' to 'be drawn into war which is none of its own making, merely to drag from the fire the chestnuts for some other na tion, is no reason why its motives should be impugned. Great Britain's financiers are to negotiate a loan in this country for five hundred rftilli on dollars. The tone of a certain portion of the English press would indicate that this was a distinct favor to the United States and that the pound sterling could be restored in some other way than by this scheme were not the de sire to be agreeable uppermost in tho British mind. As a matter of fact, Great Britain needs the United States and for Eng land to get stuffy every time tho whole figure is not in her favor shows a littleness of Bpirit which is calculat ed to irritate. MCMILLAN'S NEW BRITAIN'S BUSIEST BIG STORE "ALWAYS RELIABLE- ' i Great Britain Disgruntled. (Meriden Record.) Great Britain "sees through a glass darkly" and things have a saffron tinge. The recognition by Germany of the contentions of the United States regarding submarine warfare has brought no satisfaction to the people of the Tight Little Isle who see only a "joker" against which great precautions must be taken. Grudgingly, the British press yields a bit of commendation to President Wilson but it Is obvious that the "whole hog or none" theory comes first in England's considerations re garding our attitude toward Ger many's representatives. The United States has no more right to insist upon the abolition of submarine war fare than she has to raise her voice against a real blockade if a nation is strong enough to maintain it. The United States had a right to in sist on the observance of the Geneva convention that a warning must be given to a suspected ship and that In the event of necessity for destroying a vessel, that the people on board be given time to escape. To ask more would have been to exceed the privi leges accorded by international law. For Britain to claim that Germany is led to change her policy because submarine warfare has been a failure at once brands her previous conten tions regarding the necessity for curbing the Germans' murderous naval scheme, as untenable and lu dicrous. The United States is trying to play the game square but the role, of neu- A Gross Injustice to Organised Labor. (New London Day.) In numerous instances through out the country- Labor Day was made the occasion of attacks on what some labor leaders describe as militarism in the United States. Members of vari ous organizations of workers are being urged to set their faces against any policy of national preparedness and to refuse to be jockeyed by the representatives of capitalism into sub mission to military training or into any participation in measures for the safeguarding of the country against invasion or enslavement. N effort will be made anywhere to prevent the propagation of this policy. The promoters of ,f t-- "ure in their right of free opinion and of freq speech. They ae made so by the spirit of the government that they do not oelievo In defending. No man will gainsay the right of any labor leader to any capitalist to argue to the best of his ability and to the limits of his strength against any policy of national security that may be sug gested, or to call that policy by any name that may seem good to him. But it would be a rather trying sit uation for organised labor to find it.-elf in, in case this country should indeed be called on to defend Itself, if .certain of labor's leaders were to have their way and the organizer! workers were at that time arrayed as a unit against all miliary activity. Organized labor or.ld, in that event occupy the rather unenviable posi tion of being the only distinctive ele ment in this country unwillng to do a man's part and perform a citizen's duty by his country. If such an unhappy situation should ever arise It would not perhaps, be the cause of great national peril, be cause there are -probably quite enough men In the United States outside the labor crga izations to successfully de ford "the county epainst any possible f-.mbination at least to save it from ultimate concjvest; because," after all, (organized labor constitutes rather a small minority of the able bodied male population. And, with an army composed exclusively of non-unionists, if the peril should ever become so great as to make the service of the unionists absolutely necessary, the machinery for conscription would be in unsympathetic hands and or ganized labor would discover that it is easier to draw up resolutions against militarism than it is to escape the inevitable militarism of war times Rut the shame of the skulker would attach, none the less, to the name of organized labor; it would be stigmatized and finger pointed for n generation as the only class whicn as a class, shirked its duty in the moment of the country's danger. For it is assumed that the leaders who denounce militarism 'today are prepared to denounce militarism acute danger arises. Otherwles their position is miserably illogical. He who frowns on nreDaredness must frown on defense in the face of the enemy, for the only purpose of pre pardeness is defense and the only sue ccssful defense must be through pre nardness. o-f pnnrso ore-anized labor is not coine to set itself against preparedness Its members will be, by the tens of thousands, in whatever system of military organization, is adopted or developed. Nino out of ten ana hotter trades unionists are Ameri cans first and organized labor men afterward. Whv. then, should organized labor nrvmit itself to be so misrepresented bv blatherskite orators on Labor day or any other day? Why should or ganised labor permit damagogues to exploit it as an enemj' of the National Guard, of the army and navy of evcrv sane and proper measure of national defense? Organizcrl labor is permitting a few individuals to do it a gross injustice. THE NEW CRETONNES So popular Just now for Smock and Skirts, priced 12 y2c to 35c yard.

The class of 1909 at Harvard col lege hnr been just six years out of col lege. The earnings of the members of this class have just been given in the class report. Ii seems from this that the total carnfngs of the 321 men, who average from twenty-seven to twen ty-eighth years in age, Is $681,850 an nually. The average salary of 311 of thern is $2,114 annually. Sixteen men in the class are earning a salary of more than $5000 each. Some, who have spent three or four years in pro fessional schools, are as yet earning small amounts, but five years from now will show their average greatly increased. There Is one thing lacking in these figures, so fer as comparisons are concerned. Tlr men who go to col lege are all in a sense picked men. They have been obliged also to display a certain amount of energy In order to complete their course with credit. We are far from certain that we should be doing jnstice to the latter. And yet one cannot help reflecting that the average salary of men, tak en as they come, of the age mentioned is much less than that of these Har vard men, and it may not be entirely unfair to conclude that" a portion of the increase is due to the training these men had in college. Certainly the college work would not unfit men for earning money, A sharp tool is better than a dull one. A trained mind can do more? than oo( which Is untrulned.
