union labor mass meeting, attended
by 2,000 persons, Congressman Isaac
It. Sherwood declared the presiden?
tial candidacy of Secretary Tnlt to be
Inimical to the Inte ? sts of the work

dunned President Roosevelt for the
p'r : enee of'Federal troops at Gold

General Sherwood n?ld in part:
"To William H. Taft arc we inth ht
ej for government by injunction and
the recent mlings of the Supretn.'
Court on the questions of the black?
list and the boycott. Tail's derisloin

tho strike of the Brotherhood of Lo?

Railroad later, have bei h made the
basis for noJrly all these recent de?
cisions of the Supreme Court detri?
mental lo organized labor."
Regarding the President's action in
Hie Goldfield case, General Sherwood
said: "I 'did not condemn Roosevelt
for Bending troops at the call of the
governor, but I did condemn him
when, after learning by prlvato re?
port that the troops were not needed,
he.not only failed to make Hie- report
public, but also failed to rectify HIS
mistake by Wlthd'awing the soldiers
from Goldf.cld."
When a man makes good he doesn't
have to explain how he did it.

MAN'8 TRUEST ANIMAL FRIEND.
Wondtrful Love and Loyalty of Dog
to Its Mutter.
There was a time when the dog had
no human friend, perhaps, but very
early In the life of the world he and
man came together, and tho dog haw
at tick ever since, t?ya a writer In the
New Haven Roglsior. Man has abused
and neglected the dog. He has al?
lowed him to acrumulato faster than
ho ran bo matched with friends, ami .
hence the dog hat deteriorated. Tho
friendless dog Is the neglected dog,
and tho neglected dog become*, not
from his own fault hut from the fault
of man. the dangerous dog, Hence
the law* to togulnlc dogs, which arc as
much In Ihe Interest of the dug as In
the Interest oT human?
To the Ideal of "one Hag. one conn
I try, one wife?at a time." might ho
I ndded "one dog at a time." One dog
I Is enough fur any man. It Is sufficient
for Idenl companionship. There Is
something Insplrlngly pathetic In the
comradeship that sometimes nprlngs
up between the right sort of a man
nntl the tight norl of a dog There Is
a fidelity that might shame many a
man in the love and loyally of :t rtog lo
his master. History and literal uro '
j are starre:! with Its brightness and I
I beauty. Pity the man who can't appro- j
clnte a dog, even If bo doesn't happen
to own one. Surely his soul lack*

CREAM PUFFS NOT SATISFYING.
Made Somewhat Meager Repait for
Hungry Traveler.
I "The hungriest I ever was la my
I lifo." remarked one Pert Foster, well
known Cleveland traveler and club?
man, the other day, "was nt a llttln
station down In Texas one day where
the trnln stopped five minutes' for
lunrheon. I went In and grabbed up
a couple of sandwlchoa?the last ones
they bad?and the only things 1 saw
on Ihe counter that were eatnlile, and
then rushed back on tho trRln. for If
I missed tho train I would have hnd
to stay there over night. The sand?
wiches were nil that stood between me
and slarvatlon, for there was no din?
ing car on the train and the next
stop where one could buy things lo
eat was about lfifl miles farther on.
You can figure It out for yourself
how anxious I was to gel after the
two sandwiches. I bit Into one of
them und what do yon think tho
sandwich was? It was a cream puff!
Two cream puffs?that 1 had thought
were snndwlehes. That was all that I
had to fill up tho great void In my
insldes. I might as well have had a
couple of hickory nuts. Nico Jolly
situation for a starving man, that,
wasn't it?"
From Li Hung Chang,
impertinent questions lo others, or
comments on tholr appearance, mark
bad breeding, and lead to sharp re- '
bakes.
1,1 Hung Chang, tho fatuous China?
man, whllo visiting this country was
known for Ihe keenness of his wit
and Ihe fineness of his courtesies. Ono
day when he was calling upon an
j American lady her llttln boy, who
j had been looking Fharply at him,
said:
"Say. ,nilster, how few hairs you
have!"
"And, my little man," said 1.1. par?
ting him on the head, "how few
manners you have!"
Fatal Explanations.
Nothing is more fntal to friendly
relations than complaints and re?
proaches and demands for explana
tlos! People must be .lodged in tho
wholeness of Ihelr conduct. A thou?
sand subtle Influences, unexpected and
unforeseen events, have their action
and reaction on life. A thousand things
occur that can neither he analyzed nor
defined. Many a temporary allenntlon
is effectively overcome by silence. Re?
proaches, questionings, but widen tho
gulf. Leaving It alone, taking up other
Interests and Ideas, bridge It over.
Unwelcome Gift.
Gunner?Why in the world Is Har?
ker looking so angry these days?
Guyer?Why. they had a wooden
wedding down to hi* house about a
month ago and he's been worked up
ever since,
Gunner?What about? I thought a
wooden wedding wa* a Joyous oc?
casion?
Guyer?Not this one. Some one
presented htm with n wooden snow
shovel and his wife hsa beio making
him use It ever since.
Sincerity Givea Power.
There is nothing which will add so
mtirh to one's power as Ihe conscious?
ness of being absolutely sincere, genu?
ine. If your lifo is a perpetual lie. if
you aro conscious that you are not
what you protend to he. you cannot he
strong. There is a restraint, a per?
petual fighting against tho truth going
on within you. a struggle which saps
your energy and warps your conduct.
Rhnni and shoddy aro powerless; only
the genuine and the true are worth
while.
