SATURDAY, OCTOBER 5, 1901.
Only a few days before the fatality
that made Roosevelt president, in the
course of an address at. the Minnesota
state fair, he expressed himself in a
characteristically candid manner on
the very questions that will become
paramount in the course of his admin
istration. These expressions were
made at a tin\e when neither he "nor
-the public dreamed of the awful catas
trophe that was to follow," and were
therefore made as the honest expres
sions of a thoughtful man, without
any political purpose that could give'
them" a false coloring. Those who
I:now him will declare that he is too
frank and blunt a man -ita say one
thing and mean another, .but even
V-acse'who might distrust him for po
titical reasons must concede that his
Minnesota state fair speech was made
without thought of the possibility that
he would be called upon as chief mag
istrate of the nation, to put' in opera
tion the policies he had advocated at
that time. Yet such is the consistent

The action of President Roosevelt inj
inviting Booker T. Washington, to the
White house Sunday to get his advice

Washington's reputation as a clear

shows that the President is willing to
hear both sides of the question. Presi

President of the whole' country, He
knows that there are,more than 10,-

to cast about how he could obtain it.

How About Your Children?
There are three things that a child
may do with the world that surrounds
him. He may appropriate it he may
run away from it he may fight if.
These three types of action sum up the
efforts of a man's life, from the cradle
to the grave. They spring from three
emotions, the most fundamental and
the most difficult to control. These are
sympathy fear and anger. What a
child sympa hizes with, what he fears,
what he gets mad atthis will deter
mine very largely what ^he shall be
come. The training of these emotions
should, therefore, be the primary aim
of every parent and teacher. This
fact has not been generally recognized.
And because it has not, the world is
