The work accomplished by the present Democratic house and the Republican senate is ,worthy of comparison and redounds with great credit to the efficiency and wisdom of the Democrats. The Democrats with their work plann ed ahead completed their entire program before the Republican senate was fully organized. In the language of an enthusiastic mem ber of the lower house, "The Dem ocrats accomplished more in the first fourteen days of the extra ses sion than the Republicans had ac complished in the past fourteen years." The Republicans unable to longer mislead the laboring class n .sed their energies in a vain at tenipt to align the western farmers against reciprocity. This last effort of a repudiated party is sig nificant by reason of the fact that it has brought about the greatest dissensions ever experienced in the ranks of the Republican party. The present attitude of the Rep ublicans in the senate toward the reciprocity agreement is ample ev idence that the Republican party's representatives in that august body have undergone no change of heart since the close of the sixtieth congress. The charge made against the Republican party, that it has become the representative of priv ileged interests in the national congress, is substantiated by the action of Republican representa tives in the present extra session. Through the action of Senator Root in offering an amendment to the reciprocity bill as passed by the house, that measure is now in serious jepordy and its chance of reaching the president for his sig inture is a remote possibility. The announcement of the senate finance committee, that an adjournment will be taken in the latter part of July, forecasts a postponement of any action by the senate of the farmers' free list bill and the wool schedule. The hope of the people is with the Democrates. We can no long er look for a redress of wrongs at the hands of the Republicans. The Republican party has outlived its usefullness. The hands of greed and competition have erased every motto of progress from its banners. The party of Jefferson looms larger upon the horizon of the hour than ever before and in the elections of 1912 the Republican party is doomed to overwhelming defeat. The Democrats will march to tri umphant victory. We note from an exchange that after witnessing a game of base ball in a Missouri town, a man dropped dead. The game played in Harlowton last Sunday, we should judge, was enough to make any Martinsdale rooter long for that land beyond the seas. EXIT DICTATOR DIAZ The retirement of President Diaz of Mexico was in striking contrast to the historic farewell of our na tional hero, George Washington. It required the subterranean mu tiny of the mob to drag a resigna tion out of Diaz. Although he had been president eight terms and ought to have conceded that there should be more than one man in Mexico able to lead its des tines, he could not admit any fact imputable to him which may have caused the revolution. George Washington, on the other hand, after wrestling from King George the choicest of all his colonial possessions and being rewarded by the highest gifts in the power of the American people, insisted on his own retirement. He longed for the seclusion of Mount Vernon and the reprieve from an anxious and agitated life. Washington was a leader whose soul was moved only by pure patri otism. His only ambition was to see his own beloved country freed from the tyranny of old world monarchies and started upon a foundation that would be in keep ing with the wisdom and patriot ism of its founders. Upon the other hand the patriot ism of Diaz has a tinge of person al ambition. Anxious for Mexico's progress, Diaz' opinions were warp ed by his lust for power. His conception of what Mexico needed was some kind of ready made government delivered in packages and all of them sealed and.. stamp ed with his name. Revolutions have been frequent in the southern republics and we who have been trained to respect their authority of the law look upon our southern neighbors as being incapable of self government. But had Diaz been more like Washington and trained his people along the line of Democratic ideas they would now be able to assume the responsibilities of a sovereign people.

As the heated air at the equator ascends surface winds set in from north and south and, uniting, ascend in their turn and flow off in opposite directions. As the velocity of the earth's revolution from east to west is much greater at the equator than at the poles, wind blowing along its surface to the equator is constantly arriving at places which have a higher velocity than itself; hence it is retard ed and must lag behind, and under the influence of two opposing forces it is compelled to take an intermediate di rection, so that what was originally a north wind is deflected and flows southwest, while what started as a south wind becomes northwest. From the great service they have rendered to navigation these reliable winds are called trade winds. His Black Suit, He was not a good card player. He admitted it. His game was pingpong. But that was no reason why his part ner should be so disagreeable when ever he made mistakes. After a particularly glaring error the pestering partner turned upon him with real anger. "Why didn't you follow my lead?" he asked. "If I followed anybody's lead, sir," exclaimed the novice hotly, "it cer tainly wouldn't be yours." His partner snorted and subsided. But in the next hand he threw down his cards in desperation. "Look here," he cried; "didn't you see me call for a spade or club? Have you no black suit?" "Yes. I have," retorted the novice. with warmth. "But I'm keeping it for your funeral." Atmospherio Ressltanoe. The resistance of our atmosphere ma terially retards raindrops, haflstones, aerolites and all other bodies which fall through It, and were it not for the resistance it presents every ralinstorm would be disastrous to the human race. as each drop would fall with a velocity great enough to penetnite the tfull length of a full grown man$' body. A LONG TIME COMING By LOUISE B. CUMMINGS Copyright by American Press Asso clation. 1911. "Would you like to hire a man for the season?" The question was asked of a woman who stood at the door of a farmhouse. She was about fifty years old, and the questioner looked to be ten years older. "You don't seem strong enough to work," said the woman sympathetical ly, "but come in and I'll get you a snack." There was something in either the old man's appearance or the tone of his voice that reminded her of some one she had known before. Surely that walk was familiar. She fed him, and when her son, a man of thirty, came in she said: "Jake, this man wants to help us out for the harvest season. Can't you hire him?" "We need help, mother, but I fear I the old man is hardly able to work all day in a field in the brolling.sun." "I reckon there's some work in me." replied the stranger. "Anyhow, I got to earn a livin' or go to the poor farm, and I'd rather kill myself work in' than live on the county." "Where do you hail from?' asked the younger man. "I don't know." "Don't knowl" "You see. I'm one o' those persons who suddenly forget everything. It was about thirty years ago, I reckon, that I was discharged from a hos pital. I remember comin' out of it, but I don't remember goin' in." "That was about wartime, wasn't it?" asked the woman, much interest ed. "I reckon it was, for they told me that when I went in I had on a coat with brass buttons on it. I'd been there so long and there had been so many changes that no one could tell any more than that about it." The old man looked so lugubrious that the woman turned the subject "I tell you what you'd better do, Henry," she said to her son. "You'd better let him work for his keep and do as much or as little as he likes." "Just as you please, mother," said the son. So the old man stayed with them, working sometimes a whole day and sometimes half a day. There hung about him that melancholy to be ex pected from one who lived in a 'world from which the earlier part had been blotted out. Those who bad taken him in were a widow, Mrs. Hardenburg. and her son. She had been widowed thirty years, having lost her husband when the boy was a baby. Indeed. Henry had never seen his father. His mother had been married to a soldier boy who a few weeks later bad gone to the war and had not returned. He was never heard of after the battle of Fair Oaks in Virginia and was sup posed to have been buried among the unknown. One day when the old man suffered from a pain in his back the widow proposed to rub the affected part with liniment. His shoulder blade was ex posed, and she noticed a large mole on it. She started. She had seen on her husband's shoulder blade just such a mole. The shape of both were pe culiar, being of oblong shape with a protuberance on each side, the whole being not unlike a clover leaf. Mrs. Hardenburg said nothing to the old man about it, but that night when alone with her son told him that she believed the old man was her husband and his father. Henry considered her assertion a mere whim. His father he had always heard had been killed in battle, and the mere shnmilarity of a mark on their visitor's back to one on his father's was hardly sufficient to bring the latter to life. From that time Mrs. Hardenberg treated the old man with every kind ness and attention. But she said nothing more about her discovery to I her son and did not mention it to any one except her son. One day while at work in the barn the old man was kicked in the head by a horse. He was removed to a hos pital and examined by a surgeon, who found that the new wound happened to be in the same location as one that appeared to have been made by a bullet. The patient remained uncon scious, and the surgeon decided to re move a small portion of the skull that was pressing on the, brain. As soon as the operation was finished and the sufferer had recovered from the effects of the anaesthetic that had been ad ministered he looked at the doctor and asked feebty: "Did we lick 'em?" "Lick whom?" "Why. Johnny Rebi You must be a contract surgeon, aren't you? Any way, you're not in uniform." "What's your name and regiment?" asked the doctor. "Henry Hardenberg. -th Pennsyl vania." "Well, Mr. Hardenberg, you have been a long while coming to your own, but you've got there at last. The war ended over thirty years ago." When Mrs. Hardenberg was told that the "lost man," as the neighbors called him, was her husband she ex hiblited no surprise, saying that she knew him from his walk when he first appeared, and the mole on his shoul der blade confirmed her, in her opin ion. With the son the matter was very different. He could not believe the story till his resurrected father had proved it in many ways.

The recent sinking of a German submarine with its cre",i. all but three of whom were rescued after remaining under waiter several hours, has directed attention to safety measures. One suggestioni is that su!linrelllls bhe built with removable keels, so that in case of an at.id.lit the keel u.n be dropped so that the body of the vessel will rise. 'The English adiutralty has adopted a safety helmet with which all submarines will ihe etqupllie. The helmet fits the shoulders and is attached to a short unaerlroof jacket.
