This sudden "spring cleaning" came as a complete surprise because it dis regarded the fact that the men dis placed were all Republicans of many years ?crviep and had reached their hi?h assignments under the Demo cratic administration* solely through! the records they established for effi ciency. The first wind of the impending up heaval came several months ago, when a number of Republicans in Congress charged that Secretary Mellon was re taining Wilson appointees in all the important treasury berths.

"8hir?*d" Bryce's Shoes. Professor Strong of the Kansas uni versity law school and former chancel lor, tells an arousing story relative to Viscount Bryce's visit to the univer sity In 1910. Lord Bryce was the guest of the chancellor, and the next morn ing, the latter, in strolling down the upstairs hull, noticed a pair of shoes ontslde his lordship's door. Immedi ately there flashed through the chan cellor's .mind that Lord Bryce. used to Kngllsh customs, had unthinkingly placed (lie shoes outside "for James to polish." The chancellor, being a good sport, and knowing the folly of ap proaching an American ".Fames" or "Tilly" with such a request, took the shoes ami shined them himself, un known. of course, to his lordship. The latter, however, was quick to perceive American customs and the shoes did not appear outside the following morn ing. Which is illustrative of both Ameri can democracy and English diplomacy.
