, Vain Hopes
Since the election County Auditor Fesler has indicated that he will
ask the board of commissioners to purchase 100 extra voting machines.
These machines are needed on account of the extension of the franchise
to women.
When the machines now on hand were purchased possibly ten prices
were paid for them. It is to be hoped that when the present administration
purchases these machines the tax rate will not go up any on that account.
Schmidt*s Sham Battle
Indianapolis citizens will view with considerable amusement the sham
battle over the removal pf the mules from the Shelby street barns which
Gus Schmidt has started with Mayor Jewett’s board of works. _
The amusement will be more general when Gus fails to make good his
threats of impeachment and follows his usual course of much talking and
no action.
But back of the amusement incidental to this fiasco there is really food
for serious thought.
The women of the south side want a market. They have forced an
ordinance through the council creating that market and making it incum
bent on the board of works to vacate the Shelby street barns for market
Having clearly demonstrated what they want, and having moved the
proper representatives of the city to grant their want 9, they now find their
desires blocked by another set of officials with whom they have not here
tofore reckoned. All of which goes to show that it is exceedingly difficult
In Indianapolis for mere citizens to obtain any official recognition.
What May Be Expected
The Legislative Council of Indiana Men announces the result of its
questionnaire on important proposed legislation and intends to send infor
mation to all men voters, so that the intelligent choice of candidates may
be made. This council Is a subordinate institution to tho Legislative
Council of Indiana Women.
About one-half the nominees and holdover senators and representa
tives replied to inquiries.
Os this number thirty-one men favored four measures. Nine were
opposed to making Saturday night permanent stocking darning time each
week, six opposed the unlimited use of sulphur and molasses as a medicine,
two were against the presence of any men,on the State coal board and one
opposed enacting a law requiring all laundered men’s underwear to he
turned right side out before placing among the clean clothes. There was
no opposition to lodge attendance law permitting but one night a week out.
One candidate wrote that all the points are incorporated in his party
platform and that he might feel bound if elected to staud by them.
It Is understood that similar questionnaires will be sent out by other
organizations in order that the attitude of newly elected officials on all
subjects may be known.
The Value of Athletics
A dispatch from New York tells of an athlete who was second in the
Antwerp Olympic games saving the life of a broker, his wife and daughter
after they were cut oft by fire in their home. The athlete was taking an
early morning walk when he heard the cry xor help. He placed a ladder
under the window and assisted all three to the ground, thereby saving
them from the burning building.
The most remarkable part of all this was that the person who was
saved had been unsuccessfully trying to telephone for the fire depart
ment and give the alarm.
This shows the advantage of athletics and creates a desire to excel In
high jumping or running or something. Os course, the telephone is apt
to go wrong. It always does go wrong at the wrong time and just at the
time when the house is on fire it might not be in working order.--
If the coming generation will but engage In proper athletics It Is now
demonstrated by this act that the telephone can go wrong if it wants to
without serious trouble to any one. The fire department was saved the
pains of getting out early in the morning to attend this fire and the man,
because he was an athlete, was enabled to save life.
Tills reminds us that Indianapolis is on the last lap to get anew
athletic club and while we will not say a word about the telephone and
its conveniences or the wrong number, we are led to indorse most heartily
the new Athletic Association.
We Do Move
The announcement that a steel Ann In the Gary dtstrict la selling It*
finished product in Italy cheaper than the raw material would cost in that
country Is Instructive. ,
It argues well for Yankee genius; it shows what can be accomplished
by the use of machinery and modern methods. It also Indicates
how blessed the United States is with raw -material.
Europe will eventually catch up with America industrially, the
meantime the old country will be obliged to change sopie of its methods.
This does not mean that those things In which Europe excels shall not
stand out pre-eminent. It means that the old methods must give way to
wpw ideas and that any one who Is too conservative to welcome the now
Idea maintains that attitude to his detriment
The railroad president who shocked eohservaUves In America by
boasting that he "scrapped" a locomotive every day a few years ago, is
abundantly Justified today.
The old machinery of yesterday even If In good physical condition,
wholly fails to meet today’s need, and today’s tasks should not be re
tarded by yesterday’s machinery any more than truths discovered today
should have old superstitutions and conjectures of yesterday hanging on to
them. ' ,
In other words, v,e move In spite of ourselves, and happy is the person
who can keep up with the procession. _
Encourage the Hen
The whole country joins In the sentiment of the Indiana State Poultry
Association in its advocacy of the erection of anew poultry building and
more liberal appropriations for the support of experimental and extension
work In poultry at Purdue.
With raw eggs—good, bad or indifferent, costing 6 cents each or better
on a warm autumn day and winter coming on, it is high- time something
were being done, either buildings erected or a State commission appointed.
Where now are two or-even one fried eggs for breakfast? Gone is
the eggnog of delightful yesterday’s remembrance and absent Is even The
rotten egg for politicians of the good old days. Who last saw the egg
If some liberal appropriation is not made, what will become of the
gentle art of rolling an omelet? If extension and experimental work is not
taken up by the State at once, how shall hamburger steak and veal loaf
ever be held together without resort to glue or the hydraulic press?
In order to. Increase the output of eggs let the State build proper
buildings and let college professors and wise men rack their brains for
the comfort of chickens and their utility. The old-fashioned red pepper
and ground oyster shell have failed at the egg plant and something must
be done.
If the hens do not respond to scientific treatment, let there be Im
ported baled eggs from China, the land of the fowl’s nativity, the plica
where superfluous eggs are dried and shipped. At least the egg in powder
form can be used in the manufacture of reaffy mixed cake preparations
where the directions simply require that water be added.
Should sufficient dry product be obtainable, make a breakfast food of
it; add salt and water and drink while hot
Still better, let a large appropriation be made to hasten the day when
by-feeding Mrs. Hen can be induced to lay eggs with the yolk so white
that the whole can be made Into cake without the trouble of separation.
A labor saving egg would be anew and useful invention.
In the meantime, do not try to quiet her voice—a hen that has la.d a
fresh egg has done something well worth a noise. But by all means let
the youth be educated In efficiency and increased production in the ology to
which egg production belongs.
Should everything fail and old age indicate the futility of the education
serve the chicken to some millionaire who once In a while can afford the
luxury of spring fry. *
A New Serial of Young Married Life
By Ann Lisle

‘Speak Soflly' Good Advice Now
Theodore Roosevelt said: "Speak softly, carry a big stick and go a
long way in a day.”
When four million men wero taken from productive work atu called
into war service in the United States, a great void wa3 created in the labor
market and there were not enough men and women for the jobs. Many
men who bad been accustomed to hiring men to assist them and many
women who had been hiring employes for their homes found it possible
to get t along with less help.
Now, since the war is over and the men are back again largely occupy
ing their old Jobs, a lot of people who wero given temporary positions find
there is no steady work for them, and a of others who have Jobs have
found they had better speak softly. They tn carry as big a stick as they
wish to if they don't show it, but many are losing Jobs every day because
they do not realize conditions have changed In tho labor market.
Employes will have to be as careful as their employers In the future
or lose Jobs. They will have to remember that the employer carries
the big stick.
Unemployment is growing in the iasge cities. Hobo hails are full of
floaters —the men who work only to drift from one Job to another and
winter In the city. Thousands of them would be in the Bridewell if they
could get booze at the old prices. But the old "flop” whisky that was
10 cen(3 a drink now sells for a dollar and they do not havw the money
to pay ten times the old price, so they can't get in the Bridewell and have
free lodging.
Employment agencies, which formerly had little business except in
hiring men to quit one Job for another, are now filled with men looking
for work. Those who can see that conditions have changed in the labor
market are after steady jobs; they know the thing to do is to settle down
Relief to the unemployment situation will come in public work. In the
building industry, in increased work on the railroads Road building will
give Jobs to thousands and many others will be engaged in making road
material. And this work will have its part in lowering the cost of living.™

Now, In the last story, Puss Junior, with I
Mr. Ulysses and his sailor men came to
the cave where Mr. Poly Phemu* lived,
you remember. And Just a* they were
gotng to knock oa the door, the great
one-eyed giant himself came home with
a great bundle of firewood In his arms.
"What do you want?” he asked, throw
ing down his bundle of wood, and hi*
great round eye in the middle of his
forehead rolled Yhls way and that until
it saw little Puss, when It winked quite
Solemnly. "We have brought you a Jug
of wine,” said Mr. Ulysses. “We are
weary from our long voyage.”
“Then stay for supper,” said Mr. Poly
Pbemus. “But you must be patient until
I make the fire and milk my goats,” and
then he drove them Into the care, and
after that he rolled a great rock up
against his front door.
“I don’t like that,” thought Puss to
himself, “for how can we get out If this
, giant doesn't want us to.”
Well, after awhile, the giant became
! dreadfully ugly. Perhaps the smoke got
1 Into his one eye, and when you have only
one eye and It gets full of smoke, of
course, It’s very hard to see. And, then,
too. Mr. Ulysses and hls sailors ate an
awful lot and It kept Mr. Poly Ph*mus
; busy cooking for them. 8o after a little
while be grabbed hold of one of the
sailors and would have killed him then
and there If Puss hadn’t waved hls flam
ing gold feather In front of Mr. Phemus's
“Be sociable, Mr. Poly Pbemus,” said
Puss Junior. "We have brought you a
Jug of wine.” Well, this sort of pleased
; the big giant, and he let the sailor go,
land after wiping hls eye with his pocket
handkerchief, which was as big as a
i sheet, he drank the whole Jugful and
then went to sleep.
"Now’s the time to escape,” said Puss
Junior, and he squeezed out of the door
But, oh, dear me, Mr. Ulysses couldn't
get out! He was too big. Well, I don’t
! know what would have happened If little
| Puss hadn’t found a rope and tied It to
! tho horns of an ox that belonged to Mr.
i Poly Pbemne, and then he tied the other
' end around the big stone, and then he
•aid, "Gee, haw,” and the ox gave a
great pull and away rolled the stone, and
then Mr. Ulysses and hls sailor men ran
out and pretty soon they were all safely
aboard their Bhlp and sailing away.
And then Mr. Ulysses took no the
megaphone and called back, “Goodby, Mr.
