".There are many schedules of the tariff In which the rates are excessive ..... It Is my judgment that a 'revis ion of the tariff in acordance with the pledge of the republican platform wil be, on the whole, a substantial revis ion downward. As the temporary leader of the party, I do not hesitate to say with all the emphasis of which I am capable, that if the party Is giv en the mandate of power In Novem ber it will perform its promises in good faith." Taft, Milwaukee, 8ept. 24, 1908. "Mr. President; Where did we ever make the atatement that we would re visa the tariff downward?" Senator Aldrich on the Senate floor. April 22, 1909. SCHOOL CLOSES Schools are closing and the high fee tival of colleges the commencement Is being celebrated with baccalaureate sermons and class days all over the country. The time has come to let those who are bent on training the younger generation to indulge them selves In advice which is sure to be unheeded. Nevertheless Collier's Weekly gives some editorial comment this week on the subject of the college graduate business which does not go far astray and which might be read to advantage by the parents of the graduate if. the graduate is too busy with other things. , It might be called an editorial on Pull. "We confess to an initial prejudice against the young graduate who turns up at your office with sixteen letters of introduction from college profes sors, old school friends and distant connections of your wife's family,", And a little farther on: "If college has given a man something of value to the world, he should carry it to the place where it is least common. More over if it has equipped him with any especial capacity for success, it is good sense to begin where that posses ' Bion distinguishes him." It is not that this sort of advice does any good. People will still let the off spring of the human animal ' set their hearts and ambitions on far distant New York and let them be overjoyed to get an office boy's job when they arrive loaded down with credentials enough to satisfy a foreign i potentate. There are few letters of introduction that count without prev ious knowledge, in which case the credentials are rather unnecessary. But we would add in regard to the second proposition of Collier's that it is harder for the college fellow to make good in his own town. It is al most invariably true in most places that the returned recipient of a sheep skin, stamped with the great seal of the college invites suspicion on the part of his fellow townsmen. That being the case the average one hides himself in a hole and wonders why the town doesn't come across. There should be more . college boys who .view this situation as a "game a game in which it should, be a matter of pride to score on the place of nativity by creating a ripple of surprise that there is some reason for existence in the college product after all. "Finally we wish more qf the east srn graduates would go to small towns in the west." So says Colliers. It would be interesting to watch sta tistics and results of such a migration. How many of them would make a icratch en the surface of the town a small town in the Middle West say Richmond? n-::'wH WdBsgsaaSS L' ' '' aaaadj Freight Interchange No shipper can deny the benefit of the interchange of freight be tween the G, C. & L. and the Pennsylvania railroads. Brer since the first days of the C. R. & M. there has been trouble and discontent over the situation. . ' : In fact one of the chief reasons for voting a subsidy for the C R & M. railroad which later became the C C. & I was shipping facilities and the desire for more than one way to get out of Richmond with freight, It is not natural to suppose that the Pennsylvania which has a phy sical monopoly of the freight business here in many respects until there is an interchange of freight should be particularly anxious to better con ditions for the benefit of the town or the competing railroad. When the Commercial club entered the ring with hearings before the state railroad commission, with the result that that body ordered Inter change of freight there was great rejoicing. But those who knew the cor poration's atitude toward the thing were not surprised when the Penn sylvania went serenely on. There was rejoicing again when the su preme court upheld the decision of the state railroad commission. And now comes the Pennsylvania bearing its little proposition for an inter change of freieht which means nothing another proposition with a. joker concealed therein. , Says the magnanimous Pennsylvania: "The P.. C, C. & St. 1 railway will switch carload freight to and from Industries when such traffic originates at or is destined to stations within the state of Indiana served only by the C, C. & U railroad." As we understand it, the last sentence spoils the fair and pleasing aspect of the proposal. That is, we are told by those who are supposed to know the law, a joker pure and . simple in conflict with the spirit and intention of the ruling of the railroad commission which was upheld by the courts. ' . It does not take legal knowledge to discover that the offer, made by the Pennsylvania is an injustice nor to discern that it is discrimination. : In this fight we hope that the Commercial club will take steps to get a fair and square ruling upheld in the courts. Richmond needs it. We need all the shipping facilities here that we can get. It is not the nature of corporations to give up without a fight and their fighting methods are of the exhaustive type. - Delay technicality feints and subtrafuges will all be Interposed be fore a satisfactory agreement can be effected. But it is worth it to the town if it costs ?. great deal of money to get to the bottom of the thing. When the time comes that we have an order from the court with a suffi cient penalty for its non-observance attached something will be accom plished. It may be a long drawn out fight but the growth of the town in regard to its industries and business demands it. FORUM OFTHE PEOPLE Articles Contributed for This Column Must Not Be in Excess of 400 Words. The Identity of All Con tributors Must Be Known to the Editor. Articles Will B Printed in the Order Received. Richmond physicians and other lo cal people interested in the study of foods are greatly interested in a reply recently made to Dr. J. N. Hurty, through the columns of the Indianapo lis Star, by Edgar Iliff of this city. This reply, in full, is as follows: Edward Westermarck, in his valu able "History of Human Marriage," says "the concealment of truth is the only Indecorum known to science." A lover of truth may well wish that Dr. J. ' N. Hurty, secretary of the State Board of Health, would take this as his motto and stick to it. - Dr. Hurty in his last decretal says that Prof. Metchnikoff condemns the eating of flesh and indorses vegetar ianism. I have read Metchnikoff s "Nature of Mftn" and "The Prolonga tion of Life" and find no such doc trines set forth. " Metchnikoff, in speaking of the eighteenth century health cranks, quotes the doctrine from Prof. Hufeland, a German of the early time, but he does not give it his indorsement. He also reviews the various fads for preventing old age and restoring youth, particularly speaking of that envious Old Testa ment treatment for old men, but none of which does he indorse. Dr. Hurty further says that Metch nikoff asserts that man can never hope for prolongation of life until alcohol, meat, flesh-pots, coffee, tea, ! salt, .pepper and spices are abandoned. I do not deny that the illustrious Russian scientist may have said this. I only say that in all of his works I have never seen 1 such a statement, and that it is absolutely contrary to the conclusions he sums up in all of his books which I have read. Metchnikoff, on the contrary, in speaking of the prolongation of hu man life, says: "Any factor to which long life has been attributed dis appears when many cases are examin ed. . . . There is something un known which tends to long life . . . . Long life is something in trinsic in the constitution, something which can not be defined and which must be set down to inheritance." He then presents a great many cases of men and women who lived to the ages of 102, 104. 112, 120 and even 140, who drank coffee in enormous quantities or imbibed alcoholic drinks regularly and deeply, or who smoked constantly all their lives. In the town of Chailly, he says, there were twenty old men out of 523 inhabitants who had been great drinkers all their lives. Metchnikoff is a true scientist be cause he does not conceal the truth. To conceal the truth to support a the ory is a grave indecorum. It may be immoral. Now, as to "man's natural food. What is it? It is a myth. There is no such thing. Looking over man's history we find that he ate what he could get. He found no bill of fare and no guide as to what was good or what was bad. Sometimes he found roots or nuts or berries or fruits or meats, and sometimes men ate each other or ate up the useless old men. It is lamentable that most of the his tories of the earthly habitation have been nothing but adulations of kings and human butchers. The monuments of Egypt, the clay tablets of Babylonia and Nineveh dwell so much upon the glory and greatness of the kingly scourges of their time. If we had only intimate views of the lives of the plain working people how it -would help us out in our researches. Man had, to find his food and learn by ex perience what was good or bad; and yel; says Prol Henry Smith Williams in his ''History of Science.' the ani mal system possesses marvelous pow ers of adaptation, and there is perhaps hardly any poisonous vegetable which man might not hay, learned to eat without deleterious effect, provided the experiment was gradual." Be that as it may, the geographical position of man largely determines his food and drink. Our early pioneers in America had to eat bear, deer, goose, turkey and possum. That they were omnivorous is seen in the fact that they added corn and fruits and vegetables. In his great work, "The History of Beverages, Ancient and Modern," Prof. Edward R. Emerson throws great light upon the use of wines, whiskies, ales, beers, etc., in all ages. The truth he sets forth will not be concealed by any honest man. The intellectually honest man will say: "I want to know," and the intellec tually honest man, having proved some truth, will say also: ''I will not put my light under a bushel, though the heavens fall by its effulgence." Prof. Emerson has shown that man in every race, in every clime, and In every age has made fermented and distilled drinks from almost anything and everything that grows. Hemp, juice of trees and the honey of bees have yielded up their intoxicating es sentials. He has shown that In some countries the land is so flat, the water so purtrid, the air so malarial, that the making of liquor from the juices of trees and plants and the drinking of them is unavoidable. ' As to our edibles. How lone has butter been a food? It used to be sold as a salve and kept only In apothecary shops in skin baga. And onions? They were a drug to sober up drunken ieu. Ana tomatoes : mey were deadly poison. Cabbage? Not always a food, but a kind of cure for drunk enness. And hohey? Used to em balm the bodies of dead kings and lat er to preserve specimens. Man is neither separately carnivor ous nor herbivorous. He is omnivor ous. ine nations finding a mivH diet, and a variety of foods and drinks, have become the greatest on earth, both in ancient times and our own. And they live lonnr Americans to a ration of masticating machines, eating only such emasculat ed roods as Dr. Hurty prescribes, and any petty little South American state could whip us. Look at Great Britain, tne greatest beaf-eating people on earth! Kichmond, Ind. EDGAR ILIFF. Items Gathered in From Far and Near Enemies of the Negro. From the New York Sun. It is perfectly well understood in Georgia, and for that matter through out the southern states, but does not seem to have dawned as yet upon the consciousness of the outer world, that all that is best among the whites fav ors the idea of the negro firemen, and all that is most shiftless and irrespon sible and insensate is on the other side. The negro stands today very much where he stood when a slave be fore the civil war. His friends and sympathisers then were of the class to which his owners belonged. His friends and sympathizers today are the descendants of those owners and their social congeners, whereby we mean the great mass of the cultivated, together with the land holders and the taxpayers. The negro's enemies "be fore the war" were the crackers, the sand hillers and the wool hatters who were treated as less Important than a well fed slave negro and resented It accordingly. His enemies today are the descendants of those ancient an tagonists. Littered Streets. . From the Newark Star. In calling attention to the littering of the streets with loose paper the Call remarks: "This should not be a matter for police action, but for social discipline." It will puzxle the Call to explain how social discipline is to be aplied. But the matter Is strictly one for police action. A. year or so ago orders wero give to pstroUaem to watch , for and report all cases of vio lation of the ordinance by throwing or sweeping litter into the streets, and for some time the streets presented a tidy appearance." Then the patrolmen as well as their superiors, grew care less and the litter returned. It is pos sible for our city to present as cleanly an appearance as any well kept Euro pean city, and by exactly the same means, namely, police vigilance. The Rogues' Gallery. From the New York Times. The safety of the community re quires that a "rogues gallery be kept for the purpose of identifying crimi nals who are at large and prisoners accused of heinous crimes who may es cape. But the police have no shadow of right, either in law or in common sense, to photograph for this purpose any person who is not accused of crime. If a person accused even of murder is acquitted, the law now re quires specifically that the photo graphs "and all duplicates and copies thereof" shall be returned to him. England's Invasion Bogey. From the New York Herald. Is Count Zeppelin endeavoring to give the inhabitants of a certain tight little island heart disease? Mother's Way. From the Cleveland Plain Dealer. A New York mothers' club wants to establish a fathers day, a day on which father can freely, enjoy himself. And no doubt mother is willing to go along and help him do it. Get Up Early. From the Chicago News. Early rising is a good thing at this time of year, if ever. Try it. ' Real Boas. From the Atlanta Georgian. "I am only the servant in the House" says Speaker Cannon. But this Is an age when the servant runs the estab lishment. TWINKLES Confidence of Genius. "You say your dirigible balloon Is a success?" "Yes." answered the inventor. "But it came down to the earth with a terrible bump." "True. But it hit very close to the spot I was aiming at." "De worst thing about tellin yoh troubles," said Uncle Eben. "is aat hard-luck story never gits through bein continued in our next." An Important Function. The ship of state is fitted out With skipper and with crew. Midst the machine they're placed about. Each with his part to do. And when affairs require a tone Which instant heed can win, The orator's the megaphone That sounds above the din. A Studied Explanation. "Will you be able to explain your attitude on the tariff?" "Yes," answered Senator Sorghum; "I'll have my explanation ready when the time comes. But I'll wait till my constituents are interested in other things, and will carefully make it a little hard to understand." Worse. "So your marriage was a failure," said the sympathetic friend. "Worse than that." answered the man who was writing a check for ali mony; "it was bankruptcy." A Town Terror. Perhaps you'te heard of ol Tom Binks, The man 'at says jes' what he thinks. He's gathered fame both far an' wide; His frankness is his special pride! He points out all the faults he sees An' chides our little vanities. Whenever anything goes wrong His comment is both prompt an' strong. But greatness has its price to pay. The mountain peaks so far away In their communion with the sky Are cold. No flowers blossom nigh. When he comes walkin down the street He hears no welcomes echoin' sweet Folks frown an whisper, "There's Tom Binks. The man as says jes what he thinks!" EXERCISES DELAYED Graduation exercises for St. John' parochial school may be delayed for a week or so owing to the necessity for closing the school a short time ago in order to protect the children from possible smallpox infection. The school rooms were immediately disin fected thoroughly, and now the school is progressing smoothly. Definite an nouncement as to the graduation will be made in a few days. TO THE PANHANDLE Thomas Campbell, a student at Cor nell university, while spending his summer vacation in this city, will be employed in the division engineer's de partment of the Pennsylvania railroad company.

' MOTHER. LOVE. Look, how this love this mother runs through ali This world God made, even the beast, the bird. Tennyson. Mother love, which. Tennyson world, ,1s says, runs through au the limitless. , It Is as spontaneous, as exhaustless as the love of God. An exchange tells the story of an Indian mother down on the Texas coast who, with her children, faced starvation. The mother searched ev erywhere along the shore for food. Finally she could walk no mere. Then this poor mother cut a strip of flesh from ber. own body, which she used as a bait to tempt the crabs! And thus she fed ber babes until help came to ber. Mother lore demanded the pound of flesh, and there was no shirking, and there would have been no shirking had the flesh been taken nearest the moth er's heart. Motherhood pays its debts to the last farthing. Not long ago the newspapers told the story of how Mrs. Ella McArtbur Jour neyed on foot 1.000 miles, drawing a little express wagon, that she might keep ber children together and reach some relatives In the north. It was the only way - the mother knew, and she gladly undertook the journey. It was a true heroic only one of the many In the annals of moth er love. Love for her unborn child leads the future mother down Into the valley and shadow of death willingly, cheer fully, hopefully and lore leads her to offer herself through all the years a living sacrifice for that child. It matters not whether the mother be rich or poor. Against the protest of ber physicians the daughter of Queen Victoria 1m pulsirely kissed ber child who wai dying of diphtheria. The mother died because of it. but she could not deny the dying request of ber little one for a kiss. Mother love gives alL For the love of her wayward boy Mrs. Thaw poured out the devotion of a mother's heart and unstintedly gave ber money to save that boy from the gallows. Mother lore stops; short . only at working nlraclee. Wasteful. "Ifs too bad. said little Bessie, -that there lsst another little Peters boy", They have six." said ber mother. "1 should consider that about enough." -Well.- said the little tfrl. "they can all take each other clothes aa they grow tap. bat there Isn't any one to take tittle Johnnie's, and It seams kind of wasteful.- - Knowledge and timber shouldn't ba much used till they are Oliver Wendell Holmes.
