Those who shout that the high coat of living would become a thing of the past If the tariff should be revised " again never go Into details to explain how such a result could be brought about. Perhaps their Idea of revision la to do away with the tariff alto gether. . That secured, the cost of living might be reduced through the Inabil ity of those who want to live to meet their wants. A general reduction In wages brought about by a flood of foreign-made goods, for Instance, would cheapen the workers, and thus naturally cheapen what they had to buy. If somebody should present riractical echeme of tariff revision, thai would result la the cheapening of what the people had to buy without bringing about a corresponding cheapening of those who work, no doubt It would result In something beneficial. But when there Is simply a shout Uiat the tariff is reineible jPor high prices It fails to prove anything The problem of high prloes has not bees solved, even by those who make s study of political economy.

The design was submitted to Betsy Ross to make a flag. Mrs. Ross' contribution was simply the changing of the stars from six-pointed to five pointed and putting the whole de sign together. The distinction aa to the points of the stars Is that the nix-pointed star Is in reality em blematic In French heraldry of the spur of knighthood, while the em-j blem adopted by Betsy Ross Is the star of the heavens, certainly a noble distinction and difference where flag Is to be designed typifying the rights of man to "Ufe.'llberty and the pursuit of happiness, Thla Is the history of the adoption of the flag and credit la distributed between General Putnam, George Washington with his two assistants, and Betsy Ross.

Lawrence Journal: The Journal is glad to see the churches putting special stress on their social func tions. A church is as much a'soclal organisation as religious. . At a meet ing of an organization of the Metho-J diet church of this city the ther day the attendance waa 63. It was as much of a reception as M cards had been issued and the guests Invited in the usual, way. But It was much better. It was a meeting thrown open to the ladles and they came to gether in a way that made good fel lowship possible. The churches have had their young people's societies for some time but they have sort of neglected the older members. Wo men In consequence hare found their society at card cluba and formal re ceptions It Is better to have the churchea do thla work and It Is work In which the highest Ideal of church life can be furthered. , - Iola Register: You remember J.

Within the last two years the num ber of state Institutions for tubercu losis has doubled, and the number of county and municipal Institutions has Increased from about SO to 80. The expenditures of public money for the treatment of tuberculosis also haa more than doubled. Not leas than $3,000,000 of state money wss ap propriated for tuberculosis institu tions In 1909, when 43 legislatures met, and over 1600,000 tn 1910, when only eleven legislatures were In session.
