Mr. Tuft's long Trip. The President's Journey, which will begin i n a fe w weeks, is well con ceived. lie goes at a time when the people are curious about the extra ses sion and its work. They have read many stories on the subject. Tn some the President has been made to score; in others the so-called progressives haxe had the best of it: in still others the democrats have been crowned vic tors. What says the President? He is not a boaster. He is certain not to laud himself, and equally certain not to abuse or misrepresent his opponents in either party. A conservative man, and at the same time one of courage, he has kept his eye on the gun since the battle opened in April, and knows the full details of the engagement. The people will be glad to hear him. and wherever he speaks he will have atten tion. The itinerary has been well arranged. In the east the President and his course stand well approved. He was sup ported in his ra<-e against Mr. Bryan as a sound lawyer, and a clear-headed man who in executive office had ac quitted himself well. Eastern repub licans, as a rule, think he has made good. and that he is getting better all the time. It is in the near and far west he has been under censure. In those sections his opponents have been active?some because of sincere differences of opin ion, and some because of a desire to aid Mr. I.a Follette's effort to seize the party leadership. It is there the Presi dent should he heard in his own be half; and this journey will afford him opportunities. The topics of most importance today are the tariff, the recall and the cur rency. On two the President has made a record, and stands on it. He is in favor ot' revising the Payne law. but under the guidance of information which has been ordered by Congress and which will be ready next winter. He is opposed to the recall as applied to the judiciary, and has given con vincing reasons for his opinion in his veto in the Arizona case. It will be easy for him. therefore, to elaborate his views by word of mouth before audi ences interested both in the subject and in himself. As for the currency, he has as yet, like many others, an open mind. Like many others also, lie has been well im pressed with the Aldrich plan, but wants it discussed with other plans and in a spirit of respect for all views from whatever serious sources offered. The near west and the far west have as much at stake as the near east and the far east, and the voters of all quarters should he giving the question attention. The best plan should win, and if it does the whole country will benefit. If in his addresses the President gives advance n>>tice of features that will mark his next annual message he will not in the slightest diminish interest m that document, for when it appears it is going to be read and digested with great ? arc. Sidewalk Vaults. There has been no possibility from the outset that the Commissioners' plan to tax sidewalk vaults would gain considera tion at this session of Congress It was just as important, however, that the sug gestion should be vigorously resisted by the citizens of the District as though there was an imminence of action beiore adjournment Such suggestions as the imposition of a special tax. to be divided equally between the District and the United States, require to be met promptly and emphatically, as inimical to all local interests. Thus far the business men of the city have shown their appreciation ot the danger involved in such a proposal through its infraction of the principle ot the organic act. and its injustice in the imposition of a needless tax upon an al ready heavily burdeaed public. It is to be hoped that they will continue their op position to the end perhaps of inducing the Commissioners to withdraw their un warranted proposal. As long as Congress refuses to appropriate the District's funds equitably, 1>\ making provision for long term repayments of moneys advanced to pay the cost of large permanent warks, it is folly to propose additional taxation, and worse than folly to suggest the lay ing of a. tax half of which is to go to u.e I nited States, instead of being match ed, dollar for dollar, by federal money. As fai a> th< regulation of the sidewalk vaults privilege is concerned, to prevent the m ilcting oi the District in dattiages when accidents occur through tJie care lessness of vault owners, it is preposter ous to suggest so round-about and flnau cially dangerous a mode as the Commis sioners have devised. They could reach tae evil of possible damages against th t District by the inclusion in every permit to construct a sidewalk vault, which must be obtained now by the property owner, of a clause specifically placing exclusive ly upon the latter all responsibility *or damages resulting from his carelessness or failure to observe the building law s and the police regulations. it may as well be admitted that "lynch law" recognizes no geographical bounu aries. Mr. La Follette as Prophet. Mr. Da Follette on Saturday shook hands with himself as a prophet, and prophesied again. It was an unusual proceeding, but the senator is>an unusual man. Five years ago. when the Wisconsin leader first entered the Senate, many of his associates showed Indifference to liia observations. He addressed empty chairs. Stung by the exhibition, he declared that their constituents would punish those who had turned their backs on him by retlr Ing tliem to private life. Mi T.a Follette named no names on Saturday, but a short time ago an ad mirer of his, writing on the same theme, treated the public to a little list. Here ?re tlie men supposed to have lost their heads because of their refusal to remain in the Senate chamber and absorb the badger statesman's; eloquence at the time he made his debut in debate in that body: "Ankeny of Washington, Foraker of Ohio, Fulton of Oregon, Hansrtjrough of North Dakota. Henienway of Indiana, Hopkins of Illinois. Kittredge of North Dakota. Long of Kansas. McCreary of Kentucky, Piatt of New York. Teller of Colorado, Whyte of Maryland. Aldrlch of Rhode Island, Bulkeley of Connecti cut, Burkett of Nebraska. Burrows of Michigan. Carter of Montana. Depew of New York. Dick of Ohio. Flint of Cali fornia. Frazier of Tennessee. Tlifle of Maine. Kean of New Jersey, Piles of Washington. Scott of West Virginia, Taliaferro of Florida, Warner of Mis souri, Ppooner of Wisconsin. Alger of Michigan, Ailee of Delaware, Berry of Arkansas. Blackburn of Kentucky, Clark of Montana. Dryden of New Jersey, Mil lard of Nebraska." * Take few of these names. Mr. Hop kins of Illinois lost his seat as the re sult of corruption in the legislature, and Mr. I?i Follette wants Mr. Hopkins' suc cessor expelled from the Senate. Mr. Whyte of Mary land died. Surely it is not contended that had he tarried on the occasion in question and listened to Mr. La Follette he would now be alive and in office. Mr. McCreary and Mr. Blackburn fell as the result of a democratic fac tional quarrel in Kentucky. The former was succeeded by a republican and the latter by a democrat, but neither of the new senators is a follower of Mr. La Fol lette. Mr. Aldrlch. had he so desired, would now be a member of the Senate. His re tirement was wholly voluntary. Mr. Hale fell as the result of a fresh eruption over prohibition in Maine. Mr. Burrows was succeeded by a republican who shows as little passion for Mr. I^a Follette's elo quence as Mr. Burrows himself did. That a democrat appears in Mr. Depew's seat is due to a factional quarrel among the New York republicans. And be it con sidered also that Mr. O'Gorman is not an advocate of the I^a Follette policies. And so on. Let any well informed po litical observer go through the printed list, and point to a single man who lost his seat in the Senate as the result of his own opposition to, and the rise among his people of. La Follettism. No list of senators who were absent or left the chamber on Saturday -when Mr. La Follette spoke Is now given; but pre sumably we shall all soon read it and be advised of their fate. If the country is punishing senators who refuse to hear or follow Mr. La Fol lette, why are their successors not of the Ia Follette school? That would be both logical and Just. The Loan Shark Bill. The Senate having passed the bill to regulate the business of loaning money in the District of Columbia, it is to be hoped that the House, though on the eve of closing the session, may And an oppor tunity to concur in this important legis lation and give the District the benefit of immediate relief from the extortions of those who prey upon the necessities of the p^or and the unfortunate. Sat urday's action was the end of a long, ttard light to secure the Senate's assent to this measure. The opposition to it wa* watchful and took advantage of the rules of tiie Senate to prevent consideration on every occasion. It Is to the credit of Senator Curtl#. acting chairman of the District committee, that he finally obtain ed a conclusive hearing for the bill by overrlding objections and moving its Im mediate consideration. If the House will concur in this bill at once those people In the District who are compelled by clmcumstances occa sionally to boiTow money without having such security as the banks require will be saved a large sum in usurious inter est. There is no telling bow far the re lief will extend. It Is certain that the enactment of this bill without further delay will prevent great suffering, will perhaps save human life. For many a man has fallen into the coils of the loan sharks and after struggling for years to release himself has taken his life in utter despair. Families have been wrecked, homes desolated, crime induced by the consequences of unwise but necessitous recourse to lenders who have taken their toll in terms of hundreds of per cent. The pending bill does not prevent the lending of money at higher rates of in terest than are charged by the banks, for it is recognized that a certain measure of borrowing opportunity is required by the improvident and those suddenly caught in emergencies requiring tempo rary funds. But it regulates the lending of money in such circumstances in a manner to give the lender a fair rate of interest for his unsecured debt, and the borrower an -opportunity to liquidate without paying the principal several times over in the name of interest. The bill has been carefully considered and represents the judgment of men sincerely desirous of regulating the business of lending money in the interest of the pub lic and to the exclusion of those con scienceless ones who fatten inordinately off the needs and the inexperience and the fears of the poor. The farmer is doubtless thankful that he does not have to spend large portions of the warm weather in un effort to devise a tariff. The United States Senate has never ap preciated anything that looked in tne least like an effort to relieve it of some of its weighty responsibilities. Even when a weather prophet is cor rect the chief advantage he usually enjoys is that of being the first to hear bad news. Admiral Togo has shown admirable discretion under circumstances when It might have been easy to say the wrong thing As a matter of reciprocity, some able American might write a book explain ing the English system of government to the British populace. Vacation Toil. F'rof. Dudley Sargent of Harvard comes to the front with a suggestion that will not be popular, but that is nevertheless worthy of consideration. He thinks that vacations are in many cases harmful, and he would have them regulat ed, perhaps in some cases cut off entirely, because he looks about him and sees large numbers of people returning from their annual holidays utterly worn out from their pleasuring, and requiring time to adjust to their routine of duty. Prof. Sargent is unquestionably correct In his criticism. A large percentage of American people go at their vacations with the same energetic determination and vigor that they manifest in their or dinary affairs. They quite mistake the purpose of the annual outing, which is Intended to refresh and'rest both the body t and the mind to prepare them for an other year of work. Many a man works harder both mentally and physically while "on leave" than in his business Utterly unused to physical labor, he will ? go Into the woods or the mountains, or to i the farm or the seashore, and work hard er than a hired man, day after day, until his muscles ache and his nerves are i racked, and he will eat all manner of badly prepared food until his digestion is upset- Without needing an ounce of muscular provjJJrss in Ills eleven months of wage-t-arniu4 toil, he will set about to harden his sinews in the few weeks of his outing as though he were going to change from a ledger to a carpenter's bench for the rest of his life. Moderation is the greatest need of the American people. They must learn to be moderate in their business and in their vacations. They must adjust their out ings to the vocations, and try to get from their annual holidays that which they most need, mental and physical rest, and not that which they cannot possibly use in the course of the year.* It is a fine thing to come back from the holidays brown and hard, and with a memory of many days of unalloyed de light in camp, or on the farm, or at the seashore, or 011 the lakes, or in the hills. But it is far from wise to return jaded from days of useless physical toil that has brought no pleasure in itself and has not given the mental and nervous sys tem any particular rest. The great need in choosing a vacation program Is to find a place where one can get the benefit of an absolute change of air and scene and association. The prime object is to cut entirely loose from business, but that does not mean to plunge into a series of back-breaking, nerve-racking, digestion spoiling and purse-emptying adventures which, while called "fun," are no less than hard labor. W. J. Bryan's recollection of the time when he had to support Judge Alton B. Parker may cause him to feel like super vising the preliminaries as far as pos sible. There could not have been much doubt in the minds of steel investigators that Mr. Roosevelt private citizen would in dorse the course of Mr. Roosevelt Presi dent. The dissolution of Standard Oil has not been attended by any melancholy ob sequies either among stock holders or the general public. Gentlemen who delight in cryptographic exercises may find Interest In the fact that the letters of "vetoa" may be re arranged to spell "votes." There are statesmen who show an in clination to postpone legislation In a way that is likely to interfere with Christmas shopping. Occasionally a commission does not attract much attention except when it Is appointed and when it disbands. Enemies of "near beer" have not cir culated rumors that it contains benzoate of soda. Dr. Owen is too loyal an admirer of Bacon to complain about his carelessness in the matter of proofs. SHOOTING STABS. BY PHILANDER JOHNSON. Always Bodging. "You are afraid to go along a country road at night?" "Yes. Every time T hear a hoot owl T Imagine it's some new kind of an auto mobile shriek.'' A Suspicious Nature. "All the neighbors called on me soon after we moved here." "Maybe they are Just scouting," replied Mr. Growcher. "They may have heard we have a pretty good cook and want to get acquainted with her.'' A Frequent Experience. How often o'er some story new We pore and will not budge'. How often when we've read it through We simply say, "Oh, fudge:" Incorrigible. "Have you laid by anything for a rainy day?" asked the serious friend. "Yes," replied the frivolous person. "I'm cutting out all the fair and warmer' weather predictions and preserving them." Undecipherable. "Do you know anything about Eurip ides?" asked the erudite relative. "A little." replied the young man with nerve. "And what are your impressions?" "Well, what 1 have seen of his stuff convinces me that he wrote a mighty poor hand." The Grindstone. i There was a man on profit bent. I'nto the ways of all mankind Attention close he always lent Because he had an ax to grind. Some means of public benefit His fellows bravely strove to find. But he would have no part of it. * He simply had an ax to grind. This earth o'er which he held such sway For his sole uses was designed. It was kept whirling night and day Because he had an ax to grind. Dr. Wiley's Offer. From the Indianapolis News. If an expert who had made a good record were to walk into the office of a corporation whose management had been unsatisfactory, inefficient and too costly, and were to offer to operate it successfully at one-hundredth o< the cost at which it was being carried on, what would the corporation be tempted* to do? The impressl\-e feature of the closing part of l>r. Harvey \V. Wiley's testimony before the congressional committee which is making the pure food and drug investigation was his declaration that "if given one law of ficer and a stenograpner. he promised to enforce the pure food laws as ef ficiently and at one-hundredth the cost now being incurred by Solicitor Mc <*abe." In the lijslit of the revelations of the last two weeks most people will be inclined to believe that Dr. Wiley can do it. The Arbitration Principle. Fr?>m tho B?l?tmoro Sun. Arbitration between nations is be coming an accepted principle. There is no more reason why employer and employe should light out their differ ences than there is for nations to go to war. Americans should not wait until a crisis confronts us before we provide some effective means of arbi tration for the settlement of industrial disputes. The Erdman act is a step In the right direction, but it does not go far enough. The provision of such machinery in a time when It can be accepted without prejudice might save us from passing through an experience like that which has threatened to shake England to Its foundations. A French Bough Bider. From the New York San. The new minister of war in France, M. Messimy. Is growing unpopular with the French officers. Taking an illus trious American exemplar, he has Is sued an order that the examination for promotion to generalship shall in clude severe physical tests, and another by which corps commanders aiwto report officers who are unfit to take the field. Any one who has seen an army review In Paris, saj? July 14, and observed the fat generals jolting like jelly in their saddles, will sympa thize with M. Messlmy's efforts. ? The Beal Issue.

If a quantity of norma! blood is placed in a vessel and vigorously whipped with a bunch of twigs, a white, sticky substance is found clinging to the twigs and binding them together. This is a natural element of the circulation and is known as plasma, a fibrous constituent?and is the true healing quality of the blood. This plasmic property is fre quently destroyed by impure accumulations in the blood, and this vital fluid not only loses its power to heal, but be comes a source of irritation to any wound or open sore or ulcer on the flesh.
