Before election and totally ignored After . the election. Every two years the Crafty Politicians would look him ] up, shower hhn with Oral offerings ! and dazzle him with golden prom- ! ises. So he would finally give in ; and vote as they wished and then ! ?wait, hopefully for the fulfillment of \ their pledges. Somehow or other j the pledges got sidetracked and he i ? heard no' - of* thorn ftnvit jn?t ! Before the next election, when the ; Crafty Politicians would come, smil ing and bowing, to see him again. ! "Cnlorseen circumstances nave delayed our splendid struggles in be- , half of your welfare," they ex- ' plained, "but this time if you vote for us we will speedily do many things to further your happiness and prosperity." The Workingman was pretty I much discouraged, but he was a __ .hopeful man and in the end lie again voted as they wished. And again Jia waited long and hopefully - W. H. BIRCH f.

By this time .he was getting ou to the Politicians .and the emptiness ot' their goiden promises. He had been stung in 'forty-seven places, and it was begin ning to dawn upon him that all the politicians,- both of one party ami the other, were working him to the queen's taste. About this time there came into the political arena a -Vigorous who- adopted the revolu tionary policy of taking his ante ? election pledges seriously. He re alized how valuable an assest to him self would be a reputation for the laitbTul performance of his duty, and in consequence he deservedly earned the confidence and trust of the people. The Old Politicians were in a rage at his methods. He was ruining the game for them c.ud they banded together to head him off. tBy every crafty device known to rounds tney conspired to sidetrack ' hirn, but thir opposition only-proved ' an asset, to their vigorous enemy. The more they showed their hostiVi ' ty the more loyal became the mil ! lions of voters who had grown to ; trust and believe in the integrity oi' . their champion. They elected him tioni one office to another, and as fast as he made good, he was raised to a ' higher one, until at last he gained the top. The politicians in despair waved red llag.s of warning and foamed in i rage as they saw what a firm place the new ruler had won in the hearts oi the peopie. in lue inud.iUmv, cjao su.ruy executive - put nrto effect, great laws in the interest of the Poor Workman and for the first time in many years the lhtter saw that he had a friend who was not loi^etung nim the day after elec tion. when tlie ruler's term was over, his popularity was boundless. Only the Old Politicians and the Vampire cia.-is tnai had fattened 011 the Poo; Workman were against him. He had licked the Plundcrband to a frazzle and it was down for the count for t'.'.e firs;. timo in a gen eration. He had them going, ana when his term ended they were hanging over the ropes gasping for breath and ever and anon yelling for help. 1 "This is the kind of a President 1 like," said the Poor Workman, "lit is not airaid to tackle the biggest ' BP: Follows who have held , 1 the Law in such lordly contempt He has given us little fel.ows tht first chance we've had for years and I for one wish he would stay and finish the job he has so well, start ed." \ , ' But the Vigorous Ruler refund tr '..run again ana turned the job ov'ei to a subordinate who promised tc continue the good wrk. Alas for the Poor Workman! The New Man lacked the punch and i.i an amazingly shorU time the Ok Politicians and the1' Vampires go; ' their second wind and soon were a? strong as ever. They regained al their tost ground and whenever the> thought, of the late ruler the} ' Mn:i?h.;l their teeth in anger. The Poor Workman was sore, foi he was the one who sintered most "1 wish my old friend was back on the job," he sighed. Finally the ex-ruler returned am a tremendous demand of the neo pie induced him to run again. Wher ever tne peopie hau 51 c/iaii'-e 10 ex press their belief and confidence in him he received enormous votes | They had hot forgotten that he was the friend of the great mass of th> people and that he was hated SviHi I \ the most bittor hatred by those whom he had so long regarded as enemies to the common Rood. Once more the Old Politicians came to him and bought to get. his vote. Don't vote for this dangerous; person," they rhouted. "He's not your friend. He's trying to destroy the government. He's the tool of the Vampires who have been rob bing you all these years." The Poor Workman smiled broad ' iy. i "Don't vote for him," fumed the j Politicians. "He's really your enemy. ; Vote for either of the other Candi dates, but don't vote for this danger S ous man." ? The Poor Workman laughed audi bly. ! v^"So you really think he's danger j cms?" lie asked of the Politicians. ;..i -^Bure," exclaimed' the Politicians i and' the Vampires in one breath. '"He's a most dangerous person, and ' if anybody knows, we surely ought i to. Don't vote for him; for ;? ou can't tell what such a man will do if he gets in power." j The Poor Workman roared deris ively. "f knew 'what he did when he was in power," he said. "He was the best, friend I ever had in the ? White House, and if you think I've forgotten that in three short years you're terribly mistaken. He made the kind of a President I like and if ? t were in donbt, the mere fact that j all of you fellows are so bitterly against him would make me support , him." Moral: The Poor Workman's ; memory is longer than it used to be. Ty" Adams Lels \ Loose at Las* . ? . * . v y * * Yoluntai iiy (jives l"p..

Observations In Algeria and California V Expected "teil^ro^/e 'Variability. k l0,l> Director Abbot of the Smithsonian astrophysical observatory lias .nisi re turned from a five months' 'astronom ical expedition to Bassour, Algeria. The object of tlie expedition "was to .confirm or disprove the supposed vari ability of the sun's heat. The observ atory lias been for seven years making observations oh Mount Wilson, in Cal ifornia, on the daily quantity of lieat received from the sun. These have in dicated that the sun is probably a vari -able - stau.Ua ving a range of? variation- - amounting to. from 5 to- 10 per cent within mi irregular interval of from five to ten days. Last year Mr. Abbot made observa tions In Algeria, while his colleague. Mr. AHrich, worked at Mount Wilson, in California. The object of thus du plicating the measurements was to ' avoid being misled by any local atmos pheric conditions which might have af fected Mount Wilson observations. The observations made by the Smith- ? sOnian party in Algeria this year were ! apparently very satisfactory. They | oechpled sixty-four days, and on more than;* llfty of these days Mr. Fowle [matin similar observations on Mount I'Vyilsoii, ? in California. It cau hardly I be doubted that the results of the work j of 11)11 and 1912 will thoroughly estab (ish the supposed variability of the ' shrr or' will show conclusively that i f lH?< hypothesis can no longer be held. HIGH EDUCATION, FEW BABIES Bryn Mawr Statistics Show Race Sui- : oide Tendency. The authorities at Bryn Mawr re cently completed a statistical table as a result of answers received from graduates who took the degree of . bachelor of arts and later married, which tends to show that the higher : education of women leads to race sui I clde. The statistics include all married graduates up until Jan. 1, 1911, and take in the classes from 1890 to 1910, inclusive. In the twenty-one yeara 300 of the graduates taking the bachelor of arts degree married, and of the 301, who answered 122 had children. i , But the remarkable part of the re port is that which shows the decrease in the average number of children to the family. The high point was reach?* ed in 1898, when the children averaged four to the family of graduates. From, this fair average the i>crcentago has dropped with increasing rapidness unV. til 1910, when it averages but one child to every three families. In twenty-one years the graduates of the exclusive Bryn Mawr have been the mothers of 444 children, of which 228 were boys and 210 girls. The high water murk was reached by the class of 190 1, with tifty-scven children. Dutch In Russian Flafl. Peter the Great made the Russian lag.
