I It Is easier to get a Democrat to the polls than It Is to convert a Republican
t William J Bryan at Peoria
True every word of it and the way to get a Democrat to the poll la
lo Illuminate every foot of the road with Democratic principles Mr Bryan
hu several of these In his platform this year and he is at hU beat whon
t be If expounding them
To get a Democrat to the polls Mr Bryan has only to advocate economy
t peace Justice and fair taxation and to condemn plutocracy privilege Impe
t rialism and Jingoism The fact that the first of these are opposed and the
latter favored by Republican will not make his attitude any leu agreeable
i to Democrats As Mr Bryan Is at his best when he advances Democratic
i ideas so all Democrats are moat militant when they are summoned wisely
k i to resist Republlcan ideas which are hateful to them The two parties aa
t j not going in the MUM direction and they cannot be made to do so
6 If the Democratic party had adhered to this truth during the last
j twelve years It would be a more Impressive political force than it Is today
k Host of the time snce 1896 It has made few efforts to get Democrats to the
polls because it has been engaged almost exclusively in an attempt to
I secure the support of various radical and disappointed factions of the
t I Republican party
Ii Obviously nothing Is to be gained In the aggregate If by yielding to the
i If issues of the Populists or the Socialists a mlljlon of votes secured In tbit
t quarter are at once offset by the loss of a million Democratic votes In most
cases the loss has been greater than the gain Taking into consideration the
I sacrifice of principle Involved in such adventures the unfavorable balance
t I must be regarded as much greater
I There never was any good or practical reason why Democrats should
f r I have sought Republican votes at the expense of their own honest convic
tions Their appeal must be made first of aU to Democrats There are
i enough Republicans of independence and of Democratic sympathies to
t make a true and a united Democracy exceedingly formidable In most of
sV the States where they cooperate with each other Mr Bryan can promote
j that alliance and strengthen It materially by adhering to genuine Demo
< cratic doctrine and letting the fantastic fads of antiDemocrats alone
I t Two estimable New York women have set a new fashion by returning
to an old one Instead of going to the Government for something they
f y have taken something to the Government Instead of receiving they have
s given What changes would be ushered in It everybody particularly tho
men could be persuaded to follow their example
J Our theories have been excellent in that they have been based on the
L Idea that the people were to support the Government Our practice has
been wretched Indeed for too many Americans have assumed that It was
I the duty of Government to support them Mrs Sage and Miss Warner
I patriotically present to the Government for the use of the West Point Mil
itary Academy a tract of land worth a great deal of money though It com
prises less than 300 acres What a contrast Is thus made with the activities
ties of schemers and lobbyists who on one pretext or another took from the
Government millions of acres belonging to the public domain
Under onr system the fundamental difference between good government
I and bad government Is likely to be found In these two views of public and
private duty To the extent that we still have liberty and Justice the old
r Idea has survived To the extent that We have favoritism and downright
j injustice the later fashion Is responsible
No more subtle plan for the promotion of privilege and oppreeslon ever
was devised by despotism than that which under cover of various specious
pleas invites the people to lean upon government and to look to It for pros
k perity and progress The many always are disappointed The few reap
all of the advantages
f Our paternalist have been shrewd judges of human nature They haTe
r known that most men crave sympathy and approval that most men have
BO me faith In magic that most men are not quite sure that government la
like any other business enterprise and that most men arc easily persuade
that the power which makes some laws may set up or set aBide all laws
natural as well as statutory at will On this delusion rests most of the
t trickery plunder and wrong which the American people have suffered
The gift of the New York women Is wholly unselfish It U actuated
only by national pride and public spirit and It Is In every way worthy of
the best traditions of the Republic It It shall serve for even a short time
to come as a rebuke to the grabbers and schemers big and little It will
have a value far in excess of any money computation than can be placed
upon It

The Devil Is a Very Annoying Meddler Except in Brooklyn j
Where He Gives You a Moral Lesson and Tea for Thirty Cents
By Roy L McCardell
H 1 Hi BRADLEY was
Frlrl M over from Brooklyn
to sot ma And told me
i a they were playing Th Devil
I r over there said Mrs Jarr
I tit They always are said Mr
+ 4 Jarr but Pat ilcCarren al
l yv ways comes out on top
yt1i That Um t tne name of the
actor at aU replied Mrs Jarr
toura thinking of one of those
vaudeville actors Mrs Bradley
i a
says It was elegant and only
r LlC < J oztb ten twenty and thirty cents the
i for thirty cents and after the
i beet seat In the now
erva tea on the stage Every
play the leading lady
at the nrst clasS restaurants
place you go I mean
you are charted ten cents a cup for tea and Mru
Bradley says when she goes to the theatre where tea
drinks three
Is served after Le show she always
cUP and so you might say she seta her money I
back Why dont she tAke a twentycent seat and then i
drink three cupsshe be ten cents to the good
asked Mr Jarr I I
The Idea suld Mrs Jarr fX dont think that
would be honest although the tea nerved may be
cheap tea and while as I tay one Is charged ten
cents a cup In the restaurants still It down c at
near that much or else the theatres LT Brooklyn
I couldnt afford to serve It for Mrs Bradley says
everybody drinks at least three cups
I think Its real mean said Mr Jarr but what
I would you In Brooklyn
1 Well The Devil li being played at theatres In
I New York said Mrs Jarr where even at mati
t nees you are charged two dollars for a good or
chestra seat and all you can get Is a glass of water
How was the playf asked Mr Jarr
Oh Mrs Bradley says It was grand the Devil
just made youi flesh creep the way he tempted
Tempted everybody to throw things at him f
asked Mr Jarr
Of course not said Mrs Jail I have been
to see The Devil played In New York at two thea
trei The pimple tempted are people In tha play
Once I went with Mrs Ransle and once I went with
Mrs Klttlngly Mrs Klttingly was greatly af
fected She said It was a story from real life and
that whEn a woman Is young and attractive friend
so about endeavoring to lead her astray She should
i know she has been married and divorced
I r didnt tea the show ald Mr Jarr but from
what Jenkins told me a lot of bother was mad
bout nothing And he raid that the funny thing
was that the dame that was tempted In the show
he saw wasnt near as young or good looking as
others In the play
Oh those silly young girls are eo vain of their
good looks that nobody need bother to tempt them
said Mrs Jarr That is the point of the play It
Is the good woman the steadfast woman that Is
Well that may be all right In the play said
Mr Jarr but In real life the lady who Is no
longer young or good looking need not worry much
I And besides said Mrs Jan not heeding In the
plays I saw the husband wu such a stupid man that
you could hardly blame the woman lie reminded
me of Mr Stryvcr only there the resemblance ends
for nobody would try to tempt a fat old thing like
Mrs Stryver
Well now that you have seen all the Devils ex
cept the Brooklyn one what do you think of the
play asked Mr Jarr
It was very creepy said Mrs Jarr only It oc
curred to me here she hesitated
What occurred to your asked Mr Jarr
Well It seemed to me when the old lovers met
again In the studio and were so friendly and reminded
each other of the old days that the tragedy would
have occurred right away If the man who played the
Devil hadnt come In and bothered around for three
eats It he had just left them alone It would have
all happened quicker I think
The Devil Is a very annoying meddler said Mr
Jarr But after all the play teaches a great moral
lesson I suppose
Certainly It does said Mrs Jarr But Just what
It Is I do not know only I think If they can play It
In Brooklyn for thirty cents and serve tea they could
play It In New York for say forty cents even If
they are too stingy to give one anything but water

1 Great Love Stories I
of History
By Albert Payson Terhune
TJB loved me for my devotion I loved him for the service I had
HE rendered him
Thus In her prison cell in 1793 Just before the was led forth
to execution wrote the most celebrated woman of her day She was de
scribing her engagement and marriage to a man who was even then about
to kill himself for love of her This man was Jean Roland a refugee tiom
i the alleged Justice of Frances Reign ot Terror
i Manon Phlllpon came of an old Impoverished French family As a
girl she had shown promise of the literary and political genius by waloh
she was one day to bend a nation to her will and to hell change the hhtory
of tbe world She was so beautiful and accomplished that poor an she
was she did not lack suitors Yet she rejected every offer of marriage
in 1174 when she was twenty she chanced to meet Roland a grave
scholarly man of fortyfive From tho first ho was attracted to hor She
cared little for him but a friendship sprang up based on mutual Intertsts
For nearly the years this platonic friendship endured Then to the girls
surprise Roland on the eve of his departure upon a Journey to Italy I
pissed her This opened her eyes to his real feelings and led her little by
BeTTnrr little to learn to love him He hiked her to be his wife
j Between Love She told him frankly that she was very poor and bade
I and a I him ask her fathers consent Her father refused In a I
i Convent needlessly brutal manner This refusal probably served I
v wv < 0to sweep away Manons last doubts as to her love for
Roland For unable to marry him she went Into retirement at a convent
There she stayed for months Roland at last found her and succeeded In
wringing fnom her father a reluctant consent to the match The wedding
took place Feb 4 1779
For the first few years after their marriage Mme Roland looked upon
her husband as a heaven gifted genius Then she gradually discovered she
had ten times his brains and courage But Instead of despising him she
set herself to using all her wondrous talents for the Improvement of her I
husbands fortunes with the result that her genius raised him at last to the j
post of Minister of the Interior Madame Roland falling In an effort to
secure a place for herself and her husband In the French peerage avenged
herself by Indulging In visionary dreams of freeing France from royal I
tyranny and of making It a free country like our own She and her hus
band aired these views in print until tho French people were thoroughly
aroused This pair of middleaged lovers did moro than any one else to J
bring about the French Revolution The people eagerly read and believed
their pamphlets Mme Rolands beauty and wit made her the most popular
as well as the most Influential woman in Fnance The seeds of revolt sowed
by her were destined within a very few years to blossom forth Into that
terrible If needful growth the French Revolution
The Rolands wanted France to be free They wanted King Louis XVI I
dethroned They demanded an Independent self governing nation They
clamored for a revolution They got all they asked Iljt as In the story i
of Frankenstein the monster they created destroyed them It was a if
pretty bloodlft philosophical kid glove revolution that they had I y
planned and a pure republic like those of ancient Greece and Rome guided It
by gentle hlghsouled men When the French Revolution at last burst forth
the Rolands were overjoyed But their Joy quickly turned to horror In
stead of the Ideal calm logical change of government that they had both
looked forward to murder graft wholesale barbarities mnnked every step
of the uprising France swam to freedom In the blood of Its butchered
children The King was not only dethroned but beheaded as well The
Rolands protested against the atrocities that dally tilled the land But
France had for the moment gone Insane
Because the Rolands begged for moderation they and their follower
were charged with treason against the new bloodstained ipublic Roland
tied In time to avoid capture But Mme Roland was arrested and thrown I
Into prison Their adherents were scattered or slain In bar cell In the
fall of 1793 Mme Roland wrote her famous Memoirs In the earlier
pages of this book she says Never can history paint these dreadful I
times nor the monsters that fill them with their barbarities Oh
is vOmy friends May kind fate guide you to the United r I
i The Careen States the only asylum of freedom I

Strange Instinct of fIsh yy
By Daniel L Pratt I
T Is almost Invariably the role that salmon hatched In the head 1
waters of a stream will return to that rtreim
n to spiivn four years e
afterward This IB what Ifl 1
U known aj the Mother Stream Theory
= 1 It Is called a theory and Indeed there has been much argument
ayalrut It but actual experience has proved It to be almost axio
matic At various hatcheries young salmon fry upon toelnr
hatched have ben
n liberate Into the walen of the sUe n with dl tlnctlv
notches cut In their tails or flns Four years later fishermen
or trnrmci hav
neen placed
on the alert by InMllgenc from the hatchery operitim hay
actually taken dozens of these
flsh now full grown and returned to
their mother stream to spawn And the writer
knows of only one Instance where
fish with hatchery marks have returned
to any other
excvpt the ono In
whose tributaries they were hatched
sag Daniel L Pratt In Outing in this
Instance marked fish from Puget Sound hatcheries tho
on Skitft River wers
lIken In the nets of flKtiennen on the FrnsiT River This ncaroelv disproves the
mother stream theory however because the moat bulk of Sockeyes which enter
the Puget Sound waters turn north and enter the waters of the Frafor In the
headwaters of which they spawn Tile 3kijlt Is not a natural spawning etrsim
for Cockeye salmon and the fish In Chli Instance
coming In With millions of
other Sockea undoubtedly followed the
course ol the run and entered the
Kravr with the rest It Is not probable that the Mother Stream Instinct ts
i strong that a row fish would leave millions of their brothers and sisters and i
go to another stream merely because It was the piece irtiera they were hatched
But It Is likely when thu mother stream to
a natural spanning ground for their
Jpeces and thousands of other ash are returning with them
that the Mother
Stream Theory will Invariably hold rood
