( Editorial Page of The Detroit Times THE TIMES* MOVING PICTURES. i 1 11 i,. You've hearu about “the fierce white light that beats against a throne?” Well, this light can beat against other things, too. For instance, this picture shows It beating against the chair in which President Taft sits at the ball game. It isn't much fun, however, to have the light monkeying around your seat at. a ball game, president Taft didn't know it was beating at the time tills picture was taken, or he wouldn’t have looked so comfortable. But. even while he was looking on and asking questions of Vice- President Sherman, the reporters were sending out ov**r their telegraph wires the story that President Taft didn't know to which league Washing ton belonged. That evening all fandom laughed about it. N. B.—Fans ought to pity the president, not laugh at. him. No man at a baseball game wants a fierce white light playing about him: all he wants is to see the game in peace. So. if there is no way of t irning off the light, we at least ought to feel sorry for the head of the nation, when ever he goes to a ball game. yy y* y<* r y ■> »3 ** ** y3 S. isic !

But he reflected quickl.f that even this tribute to her sorrow would be unwelcome, and therefore he made a little bow over the baby’s body, and 1 without a word turned and held the boy up to the outstretched arms of Miss Hunt. The empress drew a step nearer, r.nd, stretching up her hind, touched Miss Hunt's fingers lightly. , “You will be good to him —you will be good to my baby?" said the em press wistfully. ‘ Yes.” said Miss Hunt gravely, “I will. I promise it.” And then the ”Dt” went up. and Strong looked fixedly ahead, unable to bear any longer the sight of the two patheilr figures standing mournfully and dejectedly together in the dusk. CHAPTER LXVII. At about 4 o'clock in the afternoon, just, indeed, as Strong was making his desperate dash on St. Petersburg, the ex-king of Balkanla grew a little uneasy. Brandt, he found, was all words and froth He was astonished that he had ever regarded the man as having any backbone. Moreover, the monotony was terri ble and the waiting utterly useless. It was ridiculous and futile to sit In Brandt’s study hour after hour while the troops held the street without and his motor-car waited at the door.

In running over tne Oentleman’s .Magazine, or Monthly Intelligencer, printed by Mr. Jrftriea at St. John's <;«te in Ijondon in 1744, one finds, an interesting account of a tariff revision which occurred in Florence.

Said Billy Beg: ' .Most mag uiftcent lords, some noble Florentines I have given tne to understand that our whole business of meeting here is *o drain the people by taxes and irnpivst. in order to swell ihe pride and till the coffers of sane private families (Bill referred to the Rockefellers, Morgans, Ryans and Harrimans. of Florence) among ourselves.

This cleared the gallery, and in the privacy of the senate after LaFolletle and Cummins and Peggio had been excluded. Senator Furfant (the Nelson W. Aldrich of that day) addressed the members of the finance committee, his loyal associates, as follows: “Most magnificent lords and noble companions, you have heard with what Insolence Pogglo inveighed against those excellent customs which we have introduced In order to establish nurarive* tti —wealth and greatness.
