RcoseveCt's PcpuCarity X,v,r In 1he hiMory of the United the public ve af has Theodore Roosevelt. hen he first ttiatle nis i-enu-dramatlc appearance on the battlefield of San Juan Hill, he was regarded somewhat as a grandstand player by the conservative element in politic. Since then he has demonstrated pretty thoroughly that his grand stand plays are in dead earnest. When Theodore lioosevelt sets out tJ do a thing he does it most completely and he let the blame and the criti cism take care of themselves. As a result, he stands today, the dominat ing spirit of the government, the terror of the money sharks of the east, nd other mushroom capitalists, the defender of the common people and the hero of the west. Despite a storm of adversities, Theodore Roosevelt has weathered the pale as never did a president before him. He is the Washington and Lincoln of his day. His popularity Increases with every rising of the sutv , . , Under the heading of "Why Roosevelt's Popularity Grows,' the Worlds Work for May pays the great republican the following tribute: "The president keeps his popularity and even widens and deepens It; and those who think In The political terms of suaver and gentler administra tions continue to wonder that this Is so. By all the rules of official dignity and gentleness, he ought now to be regarded as a reckless, dangerous, ex cited pilot who will surely run the ship on rocks at the next turn. Hear his loud talk and see his wild gestures! Alas, the dignity of the great office! And In their -wonder at his continued popularity, they say that he is the most astute politician that we have ever had, fooling the people not some times but all the time. The inexplicable, deluded people, will they applaud th3 very wrecking of our institutions? "It is in .this tone that most of the daily papers in New York, for in stance, are taJklng in tones of pity either for the great office, for the presi dent, or for the silly people. As for the great office. Thoma-s Jefferson, An drew Jackson and Abraham Lincoln held it; and, while they held it a large part of the critics saw the Impending ruin of our Institutions and despaired of the Judgment of the people who seemed to like these ungentle revolution ists. The Journalistic criticisms of these three great positive presidents was as a storm to a breeze compared with the present criticisms of Mr. Roose velt. It is instructive reading to turn back and see how almost every vigor ous man In the white house was "destroying our Insltttuions" and how the silly people applauded the destruction, and then to observe how men came Jater to look back at most of these vigorous presidents as philosophic and even as gentle and long suffering leaders. "In fifty years or ten years, perhaps Mr. Harriman, for Instance, will be as dim a figure a Jay Gould now Is, or dimmer, and the present political clashes between persons of this year or next will be known only to diligent students of our political history. Even the scandals about campaign funds will be forgotten. Men will not know who Bliss and Cortelyou and Odell and Penrose were nor who lied and -what he lied about, and who paid and what he paid for, and who conspired and what he conspired about, and who told cock and bull stories and who gat drunk and babied nobody will care about these things year after next, to say nothing of ten or fifty years hence. "But boys half a century hence will read in their histories and all the world will know and remember a few simple great facts such as these (for it Is only a few simple great facts that the world finds it worth while to re member); ' Theodore Roosevelt was the most popular president that the United Slates has had since Washington. He came to the presidency at the tlms when .the republic first fully felt its strength, and his temperament fitted th-3 vigor of its rnood. We had acquired outlying possessions as a result of a war in which he served. Under his administration we shaped our colonial policy; the Panama canal was begun; our government had an unprecedented Influence abroad. At home the plan of reclaiming our desert lands was made; and the work of saving and renewing our forests was begun, and the policy of improving and utilizing our river systems was laid down. It was under his administration that great land thefts were stopped, and that the army was made energetic and the navy strengthened. This was the period when great fortunes were made by unregulated corporations, whose leaders threatened the control of the people in politics and in government. Great Interests had their silent privileges and their senators, their vested rights and their legislatures. It was President Roosevelt who exposed them and pun ished them and again made the law respected. He refused to become a can didate for a third term and he used his popularity with the reople to have his policy continued of forbidding the corporations to control the government and of living above the law.' " Repairing tfte KcCes There are very few things which, left to themselves, will grow iiuite so rapidly as holes. "The only way in which to keep a city's streets in repair," recently declared George LiufTey, head of the public works department of San Fran cisco, "is to repair every hole as soon as it is discovered. A ten-dollar nolo today will be a hundred-dollar hole tomorrow." The same characteristics displayed by the holes Duffey speaks of are observable in holes In character. Duffey probably never thought of th's. He was ne of the members of the board of supervisors who, by the con fessions of hi fellows, consented to sell the trust reposed In him and his self-respect to bribe-giving corporations, whose corrupting activities have led to San Francisco's present bribe scandals. Duffey's character was originally a particularly sound one. Hut one hole wore tfirough. He saw the hole, but thought no one else would see it. He probably thought for a time that he would mend It some day; but it grew larger with startling rapidity. Finally all chance of repair had vanished, and now that big. ugly place In Duffey's character promises to accomplish the ruin of his life. It Is an old story. Some characters are full of little holes; others show but one big one; while a comparatively few are thoroughly sound. The only time to repair a hole Is when it makes Its first appearance. Don't wait until you are a moral sieve. When you discover that some temptation, some influence for evil has taken root and Is eating its way into your character, get out your repair kit and get after it. The mending will be easy today. Tomorrow it will be harder and nett week it may tie impossible. If you think there are no holes j,, your char acter, now is the time to start on a tour of Inspection.

He was a five foot, rotund, prosper ous looking llostonlan, who came tumbling oft one of the Shrlner spe cial trains yesterday. He paced P and down the platform In the warm sunshine in evident delight. Pres ently he spied the Sandia mountains and In a moment was lost in close scrutiny of their classical outlines. He called a friend and for some moments they chattered and pointed and ejacu lated like a pair of twin school girls. I thought It was about time for me to butt in. "What's the matter," I asked. "Say. kid," said the rotund one. "how far is It over to those moun tains," pointing to the Sandia rocky cliffs north of Rear canyon. I guessed It for him at twenty miles. "Twenty miles!" he sputtered, "On the dead?" Then he turned to his companion. "Well, Jim. I guess that one won't go. We both just saw unite plainly a man walking along the top of those mountains. Twenty miles! N'ew Mexico air may be mighty clear, but I guess we better not tell that one when we get back home." Wlion tlu Green Gets Ruck in the Trees.

Norrette; If flying ma chines were numbered as automo biles used to be, your curiosity might be satisfied at least three minutes sooner." The air ship settled slowly, "It s Jack! Mary, Mary oh. stie s gone! A pretty chaperon she makes. No wonder I can't endure him, thrown at his head as I am. Well, let him come, I'm not afraid. I ll marry him or not, as I choose." lie swung easily toward her. "I'm not glad to see you," was her rude greeting. "Indeed?" cheerily. "I'm delight ed to see you. What wedding gar ment are you making now?" "None for any wedding of yours." "Then put It away and fly with me. Hy nightfall we shall have reached the moon, where the fairies live and there we can be wedded. You shall be bound so gently that even you will forget to fret at love's silken cords. Come!" "Silly, can't you see I'm busy?" "I see that you are saucy. Permit me," and without ado he picked her up, sewing and all, and ran with her to the ship. In an instant they were off Hnd Norrette, red with an ger, was tugging at the knots in her thread. "I love you," said the man. "Ninety-nine times!" snaimeu the girl, taking her teeth from a knot. "There Is luck in nines." "Luck!" she glanced up scornful ly, then a strange light leaped to her eyes and a quick color to her cheeks. Another machine, the ship of the rival lover, silently sailed be hind them. The girl knew that he could hear her every word. "I would throw myself from the ship before I would marry a man who attempt ed to run away with me." ' As she spoke she perched perilous ly near the edge of the boat and her eyes flew past Jack's shoulder and shone full into the eyes of the rival lover. He read her message and an swered her daring with a nod and smile. In an instant the second ma chine glided noiseless beneath the larger one and slightly to one side. The girl swung deliberately over the rail and swayed toward what seemed a reckless plunge to death. With a powerful effort Jack brok? the spell which held him. and, springing forward, cried, "No, no, Norrette, I will never " but the words froze on his Hps as the out stretched hand of the rival lover rose from space to steady her Into the other car, where, in defiance, she sang out, "Go, take your trip to the sliver moon, ha, ha!" Roth men were pale. "It was a wicked thing to do," said Jack, then with a quick tug. he changed his course and shot away toward the gleaming sun. "No wonder men adore you." said the rival lover. "Norrette, when will you marry me?" "Don't!" commanded the girl. !n sudden fright. "I was a fool. This Is no time for love making. Take me home." "Hut, my answer; you promised it today." "Did I? Tonight, then, not now." "Tonight, when the moon is full," he whispered. She nodded and was gone. Her aunt sat be'fore a tray of flow ers. "Your fly was short. Why. Norrette, you are quite white!" nnori, yes, out h mignt nave been to eternity!" In the shadows of the court Nor rette lingered among her roses. There was a fluttering, a gleam of white silvered in the moonlight, and presently Jack found her there. "Norrette, 1 was rude. 1 offer nc excuse, there Is none. Rut. until to day I did not know that you really hated me. I was foolish enough to think thai you cared. Can you for give me before I go away?" She held out her hand. "Thank you." he said gently. ' I was afraid you would not forgive Goodby, Norrette." "Don't go yet," she faltered. "Yo.i 1 you haven't said good-bye to Mary." "You may tell her." "Hut " "Well 7" " Jack, can't you see?" "I see a man running down tht stairs," said Jack dully. "1 must go." "Oh. it is lie!" whispered Norrette fearfully. "He is coming after me. Jack. Jack, dear, take me quick ly! I do love you." No dullness could fail to respond to that eager pleading and to the clinging of those trembling finger-. In the shadow of the friendly bal cony he bent and kissed her willing lips. "Norrette," called a deep voles from across the moonlit court. "I am here," said the girl from her lover's arms. i am here." slie repeated, dragging Jack forward Into the white light. "I'm sorry I mean I'm glad that I am going to marry Jack! You sei Aunt Mary thinks ! ought. And -won't won't ymi haw some fruit before vou go? it s on the roof!"
