some manufacturers who loaded up j beneicent operations without conflict-
wlth the staple at higher prices, but
the larger proportion of manufactur
ers will benefit by cheaper cotton,
which in the long run must not only
stimulate the industry, but give the
consumer cheaper fabrics and tend to
increase consumption. There is no
ing with public interest and without
any injurious effects to business in
terests further than the temporary in
convenience of readjusting itself to
new legal conditions. So far as politi
cal elements are concerned, the out
look in the long run is distinctly
doubt whatever that both the steel brighter, and nothing more serious
trade and the textile industry have, than temporary setbacks may be an
seen the worst of the crisis, have j ticipated on the news from Washing-
turned the corner and are now mov
ing forward to better conditions. Tariff
uncertainties are the chief obstacles
at tho moment, but these will soon
come up for adjustment and the prob
abilities are that no very injurious
changes will be made in any of these
schedules. It is only where excessive
protection has been enjoyed that
sharp cuts are likely to be made.
There is also a better sentiment In
banking circles as revealed by the at
titude of our financial leaders toward
the stock market and in their prepa
rations for the placement of new se
curity issues. We are now approach
ing the largest dividend season when
the demand from investors is always
counted upon in advance as a strength
ening element. It Is worthy of particu
lar attention that dividends on both
railroads and industrials have been
well maintained in spite of recent
business depression. This result has
been largely obtained through econ
omy and the postponement of many
renewals and repairs. The railroads
have fared better during the latter
half of the year than expected, and
are now beginning to show better
gross earnings. There has been no
important diminution of traffic as some
timid managers predicted, and with
better ..ct results there is every rea
son for increased confidence in rail
road Bhares, particularly those of the
higher grade. The cheaper issues,
however, will of course show the most
marked recovery, for the reason that
they were the chief sufferers from
the fears and disturbances which are
now passing away.
There is also a much better political
situation. A week hence Congress will
open and the country must be pre
pared for shocks from proposed radi
cal legislation. The presidential cam
paign has been prematurely begun. It
is fairly under way. Sensational at
tacks must be expected for political
effect. This should be regarded, how
ever, with reserve and a recollection
of the fact that the conservative ele
ment often rests in the background
until the inal struggle, when it usually
Finally, we have a better foreign
situation; better investment condi
tions; a better bond market; a satis
factory monetary outlook, and better
copper conditions, all of which must
tend toward a return and crystaliza
tion of confidence. The only reactions
at present in sight are such as may oc
cur from political developments and
the taking of profits after an already
very considerable rise. Such reactions,
however, under present conditions are
sure to be followed by further recoveries.
A MODERN LOVE STORT.
Would you like a "real, for sure"
love story today?
The prettiest one I know la that of
Arthur Fortescue. nephew of the Duke
of Portland, and Olga Voriuhoff. a
Dukhobor maid of Canada.
A few years ago Fortescue, a dash
ing, handsome graduate of Oxford,
with the wanderlust in hta reins, went
away to Canada to seek adventures.
In Quebec he heard many tales of
those strange people, the Dukhobors
their qneer religious beliefs, their per
secution In Russia and their coming to
Which appealed to Fortescue.
Tie determined to go on a visit to the
community, study tba people at first
band and write a book about them.
The book waa never written.
One day In his travels through the
colony the young man met a band
of women dressed in strange attire,
drawing a plow and chanting a minor
keyed song as they toiled at the ropes
As they passed his eyes rested for a
moment on the sweet face of a girl in
her teens. She looked at him shyly,
and be thought her face the most win
some he had ever seen.
The Incident was forgotten.
But one day in a little cabin the
vision of the girl's face flashed upon
his memory. He could not forget it.
Impulsively he started to find her and
after a long Journey succeeded. He
found the girl unaffected, but surpris
ingly sweet and womanly.
After weeks of hesitancy he took the
little maid to his heart and kissed her.
Friends, bearing he was to marry the
maid, tried to dissuade him. They said
bis fancy for the girl would fade.
Nevertheless the nobleman and the
Dukhobor lass were wedded.
The news went back to England, and
Fortescue was disinherited. But long
before he heard about his disinherit
ancelittle recked he of the ways of
aristocracy be bad adopted the simple
creed of the Dukhobors and entered
the communal life.
That was eight years ago.
Fortescue by reason of his educa
tion has become a leader among the
pious folk and is still very much In
love with his pretty, gentle hearted
And thus endeth the true tale of Rob

Under the plan adopted for the man

pensive lunch can be secured by pupils
who cannot get home at noon. A single
hot dish is served, while sandwiches,
milk, dessert, and similar light articles
complete the menu.
Mr. A. B. Roy, instructor in manual
training, addressed the school on
"birds" at the chapel exercises Thurs
day morning. He spoke of the great
number of birds common to this coun
try which are almost unknown to the
ordinary person, and also outlined sev
eral interesting features of bird life.
The school orchestra, under the direc
tion of Miss Shute, furnished a pro
gram of music at the exercises. This
was the arst appearance of the orches
tra for the year, but it is planned to
have a similar program every week
in the future.
In the hope of making the orchestra
more efficient, a plan of reorganization
has just been put into effect by Prof.

new system student officers will have
charge of handling certain phases of
