Howat was one of the leaders of the
!oal miners recently cited for con
empt by Federal Judge Anderson at
The action of the lUinois miners'
convention came after a lengthy ad
dress by Howat, in which he reviewed
the general strike conditions last fall
and told of how the Kansas legislature
was called together and the industrial
relations court was established.
"The law calls for imprisonment of
two years and a fine of $5,000 for any
one who participates in or calls a
strike," Howat said, "but come what
will, whether or not my bones rot in a
prison cell, I am going to fight this
law with the forces of 12,000 miners
in Kansas and regardless of conse
quences give Governor Allien cause to
remember that organized labor must
and will have the right to cease work
at its will. ,
"Be the consequences what they
may there Is no power on earth, in
junction or otherwise, that will make
me call off this strike. This strike will
be called by me in the near future.

THE qualities that made Roosevelt successful were apparent in him
while he was still a little boy. These qualities were developed, year by
year, through intelligent direction. The Colonel's father was largely re
sponsible for the great American's remarkable career his example taught
the boy self-assertion, self-reliance, personal independence and integrity.
This month's Cosmopolitan publishes a startling analysis of Roosevelf s
character by toctor X and related by Harvey O'Higgins in "Yourself and
You." He tells of the boyhood incident that prompted Roosevelt to learn
how to box. Why the Colonel went into politics. Why Roosevelt was a
poor judge of men. Why he was called "Teddy" and why he liked his
nickname. There's a wealth of new light on Roosevelt in this new article.
' There are valuable suggestions as to how you may yourself use the same
theory Roosevelt employed to overcome apparently insurmountable diffi
. culties and, better still, how you may help your son to grow up to be
'. the kind of a man you want him to be.
Get the new Cosmopolitan today and read the conclusions reached by
Doctor X in his study of the life of one of the greatest Americans.
Edna Wasn't the Least Bit
lUT how she shocked the folks at home
with her letters from Somewhere-in-
France! As Rupert Hughes says in "The
Split," his short-story in the latest Cosmo
politan: "What Edna did to the war is not
worth mentioning, but what the war did to
Edna !"The pastor read Edna's first letter
right out in church.butthe second letter and
the third well, youll have to read the story
to find out what shocked the Carthage folks.

THIS is an amusing story by Frank R.
Adams of the "today" thatyou worried
about yesterday and that never happened.
Conover Collier was going through life
chained to the fear that he might lose his
job or his sweetheart or his savings account.
Then, when it looked like he had lost all
three, he was surprised to discover that "it
might have been worse," as inveterate
optimists are in the habit of saying.

The Hoover lifts rta rag from A Hoot, ffaWcnt II upon

so prolong its life. -
Even the clinging hairs that pets spread on rugs are instantly de
tached by the thorough sweeping of the Hoover. By its gentle beat
ing it dislodges the destructive embedded grit. By its suction clean
ing it withdraws the loosened dirt. These are the three essentials of
thorough cleaning. Only the Hoover performs them all. And it is the
largest selling electric cleaner in the world.
