THE BEST SUBSTITUTE for coal is steam heat.
GAS IS NOT a satisfactory substitute, especially when you cannot
get the gas. -
\ ANNOUNCEMENT is made in Chicago that gamblers conducting base
ball pools in Indianapolis may be summoned to testify before the granij
jury investigating “fixed" games in the big leagues. So there are baseball
pools here! NOw won’t that surprise the police?
Phrase Making
Some rich person should endow the mo3t available university with
sufficient money to insure proper training in emergency phrase making.
The laity is not skilled in this regard and there exists a need of new meth
ods for professional people, especially heroes.
The ordinary man occasionally uses an expressive but unconventional
phrase, particularly in driving nails, hunting collar buttons and carving the
piece de resistance in the presence of his wife's relatives.
These are not always audible, but it just as wicked to think as to
say them.
The United States has a war every twenty or thirty years. We always
have a goodly crop of heroes. Just when these men are doing their main
stunt they say something. They should be trained to say the right thing.
The effect of the right thing at the right time is wonderful.
Some fine things have been said and these aTe taught to school children
as worthy of all respect and so they are, but in late years the art has been'
more or less neglected and has fallen back. True, General Pershing did use
a great expression at Lafayette’s tomb, when he said, “Lafayette, we
are here," but that seems to be the only thing said by anybody excepting
ex-Kaiser William during the war. If only General Joffre or General Foch
had struck a Napoleon Bonaparte attitude, with one hand in his coat and
spoken a few' short words!
This branch of heroing has been overlooked. Some of us remember
that even during our Spanish war, there was a fall-down. Hobson could
not speak, he only could act. Later he recovered speech, but it was too late
to act then. It must be quite nerve racking, trying to think of something
to say for the school bookß, just as one is engaged in performing a great
But it Is not so much for the relief of the actor as for the benefit of the
public that we urge this. Commodore Perry’s message, “We have met
the enemy and they are ours, ; ’ thrilled a nation during the 1812 war and
added heart that the failure of land fighting had depressed. Commodore
Farragut’s “Damn the torpedoes” was an inspiration to Dewey, who in turn
said, “You may fire, Grialey, when you are ready."
Os course the above were uttered by men of nautical habits and if we
are to coin new phrases, by new men. we must consider the changed condi
tions incidental to our franchise and other progress.
Let the future hero be trained to say something nice, so that if he gets
into politics, the ladies will appreciate what he may coin for future genera
tions. He might even speak them on a record, in advance.
We cannot do it ourselves but surely some learned professor could
take all the great sayings, from “et tu Brute” down to date, could analyze,
classify and improve them so that the next production will be thoroughly
up, to date and proper.
Better look ahead than regret.
Looking Ahead
Conservatism seems destined forever to be shocked by tomorrow’s
events. This generation must eliminate many truisms of general use in
times passed. Men can fly, wireless telegraphy and telephony are estab
lished and mechanical and political achievements of yesterday are today
outclassed by successive efforts.
It does not do to treat the most extravagant claim or advancement with
disrespect. Darius Green and his flying machine are now regarded as fore
runners of what did occur in our time.
In this connection the efforts of Prof. Robert H. Goddard of the
Smithsonian Institute, to attain great altitudes is interesting and may
lead to important discoveries. He is endeavoring to demonstrate a device
that will remove the possibility of any doubt as to the practicability of the
method and also as to the possibility of attaining as great altitude as
may be desired. Eventually he may send up a rocket capable of soaring
to the moon.
Does this cause a smile?
Some thought it impossible for the German gun to send a projectile
seventy-five miles into Paris, but it did.
What practical use there is of this remains to be determined, just
as did the use of the airplane. Now passengers and mail are carried
in airships and tomorrow the world will converse anywhere without wires.
What will happen next day can not be ventured, but something will surely
occur, for the good of humanity, and to blesy a thousand patient and
heretofore unrequited efforts along countless lines of activity.
In the whirligig of events whose significance are only dimly dis
cerned, we can only live a little, learn a little, grasp a little truth and
then pass on. Only the truths remain but progress Is ever the watchword.
The Valuable Goat
The recent sale of a Saanen buck, commonly called a billy coat, of
the Saanen persuasion, whatever that may be, for $760 forces us to con
clude that either the go&Chas eventually come into his own or'that the
high cost of living will devbur us all.
It is preferred to think that after generations of unrequited slander,
the goat has come to recognition.
He has been slandered from billboards used to advertise beer (long,
long ago) to actual rumors that he ate tin cans.
Indeed, It is a satisfaction to know that one may now either purchase a
Saanen buck or a sedan Ford at approximately the same price.
The friend of the goat, who has seen him eat newspapers, chew up the
family washing and bark all the trees to which he was tied, will now re
joice that those of the Saanen breed are worth 'so much more than the
vulgar cow, which is the only rival the goat has in milk giving.
The doe which gives such wonderful milk Is really a.dainty animal,
clean, careful of Its diet, gentle and as intelligent as a dog.
The milk is as rich as cream—and Is fed to children and invalids who
cannot digest cows’ milk. The goat eats about one-fifth the food of the
cow, produces less, but a finer quality milk.
Other countries have long known the value of the goat, from its
milk, from its meat and its pelt; Switzerland has fine herds; Italy raises
many. Goats of the warmer countries give more milk and are in more
general demand. In America, as the poor man’s cow, the goat is found in
communities where there are many foreigners, and there may be seen many
of the little animals, tied about on vacant lots and always contented.
The Angora goat which furnishes wo >l, is to be distinguished from the
milk goat. It often fails to nourish even its young.
Where Friendship E’ids
Just as every dog has its day, why shouldn’t every dog have its fleas?
It seems sort of an inborn and inalienable right.
But in the exercise of that right it would be well for the dog to ex
ercise some discretion and keep its fleas to itself.
For many, many generations the dog has been industriously establish
ing a reputation—the reputation of being man’s best friend—but it seems
as though it would be stretching things Just a bit when one’s best friend
came around and began shedding fleas and still wished to retain one’s best
The Information received by the division of entomology of the State
department of conservation to the effect that hog fleas and dog fleas, par
ticularly the latter, are making life miserable to many people in various
parts of Indiana, sort of has a tendency to shake one’s faith in friendship
of the canine variety. \
Os course there may be those who would consider such criticism harsh,
on the ground that a dog was not responsible for the actions of its fleas—
that the aforesaid fleas were, in a spnse, free agents and not subject to
control. • . \
But such persons should take into consideration the fact that the dog
should at least possess sufficient courtesy to have only trained fleas or

IX. The Lincoln-Douglas-Breckinridge-Bell Campaign
WASHINGTON D. C.—Much of the
practical politics of the presidential
campaign of 1860 hgs been buried be
neath the glory of the Lincoln adminis
tration and the horrors of the Civil War.
The political result of that campaign
was the promotion of the newly-born
Republican party to power, the second
political revolution of American history.
For the first twelve years of govern
ment under the Constitution the Fed
eralists were in power. With the elec
tion of Thomas Jefferson an actual rev
olution was accomplished and the power
of government was given to the Demo
cratic party. The Democrats ruled for
sixty years. Twice during that time the
Whigs elected a President, but there was
no practical interruption of Democratic
ascendency. With the election of Lin
coln. the Republican party assumed the
The first Lincoln campaign was marked
by practical politics. Mr. Lincoln did
not make an active campaign. Many of
the Republicans were somewhat ashamed
of their candidate and none of them, out
side of Illinois, brought the personal
equation into the discussion.
The fight raged In Its greatest bitter
ness between the two Democratic candi-
A. Douglas and John C.
Breckinridge. John Beil led the Constitu
tional Union forces as the representative
of extreme conservatism, but. like Lin
coln, he took no individual part in the
Douglas, the “little giant of Democ
racy,” stumped the country from New
England to Louisiana. A wonderful ora
tor, earnest as (be was in his efforts to
accomplish the salvation of the Union and
believing that the only way to save it
was his way, the country never knew
before and perhaps never will know again,
such a masterly campaign. But it was
all in Tain. He had broken with the
South and with Buchanan, and not logo,
nor reason nor oratory had power to Leal
wounds so deep.
Douglss was Indirectly responsible or
the nomination of Llucolr. Two years
before, in 185.8, Lincoln had opposed
Douglas for re-election to the Senate.
Their Joint debates In that year still live
in the memories of men. and will live on
the pages of history for ell time. Doug
las was the better speaker) and he won
the election for Senator. But Lincoln
had pressed him close and had had the
eye* of the whole country upon him.
It was against the advice of every
friend he had that Lincoln bore down
upon Douglas and asked him a series of
questions involving slavery in the terri
tories One question was: “Can a ter
ritorial Legislature exclude slavery if it
sees fit?” If Douglas had answered that
question In the negative, Lincoln would
have been elected Senator in 1858 and
might never have beea President. But
Douglas said “Yea!” That reply car
ried him back to the United States Sen
ate, caused Horace Greeley seriously to
propose Douglas for the Republican noml
nation for President in 1860, broke the
Democratic party in twain and elected
Lincoln President.
Slavery in the territories was the whole
issue, as it had been more or less for a
half century. It was Thomas Jefferson,
Virginia slaveholder, who wrote into
the northwest territory bill the provi
sion that that territory should be for
ever free of slavery. The was
compromised In 1820 and in 1850 by Henry
Clay. The Wtlmot proviso, using the
exact language of Thomas Jefferson,
kept slavery off the Pacific coast. In
1854, by the act of Btepien A. Douglas
himself, assisted by Franklin Pierce, the
Missouri compromise of 1820 was repealed
and the whole question of slavery ex
tension reopened.
The South held that the territories
were Federal and belonged as much to
the slave States ns to the free, and that
until they became States the Federal Con
stitution was their only law. The Con
stitution permitted slavery by Its silence,
and this theory would make them slave
territory. The North held that Con
gress colild legislate slavery out of a
territory, but could not legislate It In—
that the territories must be free. Doug
las took the middle ground, n position
which Clay would have supported, and
declared In favor of ‘-popular sovereign
ty”—that Is, of permitting the people
of a territory to decide the slavery ques
tion for themselves.
The Democratic National Convention
met at Charleston that year. The fight,
on the platform was long and bitter, and
when It was seen that Douglas con
trolled the the Dougins
platform would be adfljjp.ed, the majority
of the southern State delegations with
drew from the convention. The regular
convention then adjourned to meet In
Baltimore. The bolters adjourned to
meet In Richmond. The Richmond con
vention met on time, but immediately ad
journed to another day to await the ac
tion of the Baltimore meeting.
The “regular" convention assembled In
Baltimore and the old fight broke out
afresh. Caleb Cushing of Massachusetts,
who was president of the convention,
finally became so disgusted with the

President of the United States, for Pres
ldent, and Joseph Lane of Oregon for

nominations of Breckinridge and Lane.
Lincoln was nominated at Chicago by
a group of shrewd politicians who de
liberately overthrew the will of the ma
jority of the party in Jhe interests of
expediency. William H. Seward was the
great leader of Republicanism, and when
the .delegates met at Chicago, two-thirds
of them wrere for Seward. But Seward as
Governor of New York had been too
closely associated with the Catholicism in
politics. The Know-Nothing vote was still
large and had to be reckoned with, espe
cially in Pennsylvania and Indiana An
drew G. Curtin and Henry S, Lane. Re
publican nominees for Governor in Penn
•ylvanla and Indiana, respectively, put'
up the scheme to defeat Seward. They j
knew hia affiliations would defeat him
In their States, and wopld probably de
feat them also.
But with all the strenuous opposition
and scheming, Seward probably would ,
have won If his managers had not fool-'
sbly organized a great atreet parade In
his behalf. That took nil the Seward
boomers on the streets. While they were
marching, the Lincoln managers packed
the Wigwam galleries with Illinois folks
who were Instructed to yell for "Abe.” j
They yelled all right. Abrahatr. Lincoln
was,nominated for President. The Con
stitutional Union party was the last at
tempt to gather the “old line Whigs" into
a political organization. Its candidates.
John Bell mt Tennessee and Edward Ev
erett of Massachusetts, received more
than three times a* many electoral votes
as the Douglas ticket and more than halt
• s many as the Breckinridge ticket. j
Lincoln received a great majority of
electoral votes over all bis opponents, but
he was greatly in the minor ty in the j
popular vote. The possibilities of the
, l€*etorjil nr * tern of fhooalaff a TrenMenl
were keenly illustrated la the result.l
Lincoln received 180 electoral votes and
1.866.352 popular votes. Douglss was
next In the popular vote with 1,375,157.
but he got only twelve electoral votes!
Mmoht an electoral vote so?
,!as had more than XpO.OoO popular votes ,
for each electoral vote. Breckinridge had
MiJsl* popular votes, but little more then
half of Douglas', yet he received 72 elec- j
toral votes, six times as many as Doug
las. t Beil, with less than half of Doug- |
las popular .vote, received 39 electors) ,
votes to Douglas’ 12. Douglae, running
next to Lincoln, carried only one State, :
M.ssouri, although he received three of
the seven votes of New Jersey and three
of the 30 votes of Pennsylvania.
The election of Lincoln had been ex
pected early In the campaign on account
of the Democratic split, and threats of
secession were heard on every wind from
the South, and retaliatory threats of war
were wafted back on every Northern
breeze. The great crlsl* was at hand and
Lincoln was the man to meet it.

“So your old friend, the black rusty,
'(fusty crow, doesn't wish to wear a white
coat,” said the Ice King, who you re
member in the last story was very angry
with Puss for coming to the palace.
“I traveled far and wide. Your Icy
Highness,” said Puss. “Through Mother
Goose Country and New Mother Goose
Land and over the pcean to Neptune's
Island. I have met many kings and
| great men, but in all my travels I have
! not met so disagreable a person as you.’’
My goodness, gracious me! As I write
this down I’m almost afraid to think
what may happen to Puss Junior. If it
were the former Kaiser, I could tell you
right away what would happen, for Wil
liam II doesn’t like the truth any better
than this lee King does, let me tell you.
“Puss Awoke at tho Foot o( a Tree.”
But, would you believe it, the Ice King
suddenly turned his scowl into a smile
and put out his hand to Puss.
“I like bravery)” he said. “I like my
brother King North Wind because he
never gets soft and silly like my yonger
brother, King South Wind. And I like
you, little Sir Cat, for the way you stand
up for your friends and for tbe right
Here is my hand, and I promise you that
the blackbirds and crows shall wear their
old black coats forever and ever.”
Now this was a pretty long speech for
the lee King, and his breath made the
palace so cold that they had to put on
twenty more pounds of steam in the boil
er, and the engineer said he would leave
if- it happened again; so you see they
have troubles even up in the Snowflake
Country, as well as we have In our own
Well, after that Puss said he must he

White Albatross to carry Puss back to
the southern part of Fairy Laud, where
the rosea were in bloom.

Puss. “Have no fear for my safety. 1

dle as upon a hobby horse.” and he
Jumped nimbly on the back of the Alba
tross, ami away they went.
"We will take a short cut,” said the
big white bird, and he flew toward the
sea, and by and by they couldn’t see any
thing but water. And after a while they
passed a great three-masted ship, and all
the sailors waved their caps, and Puss
waved his; but the Albatross didn’t stop,
but flew on and on, and after a while
they saw Neptune In his water car drawn
by three great Sea Horses, with their
foaming tails. And Neptune blsw his
horn three times, but stiU the Albatross
didn’t stop, for he knew that he stiU had
a long Journey before him.
And then, after a longer while, a greast
storm came up, and the sea ran moun
tains high, so tbe Albatross flew up above
Ihe clouds, where it was still and quiet,
and then Puss fell asleep, and when he
woke up he was lying at tbe foot of a
big green tree with a long white feather
In his paw; but the Albatross was no
where around, for he had left Puss and
