Though they are Increasing in number, many people have not the Blightest Idea oi wnm '"" . retreat really Is. "A retreat is." aays a recent writer who has a thor ough knowledge of the subject, "a quiet, deliberate taking hold of oneself, a momentary halt In the rush of events, an examination of ! the course ahead and behind to find out whether or not we are really on the right track. Have you ever watched an engineer about to start' out on a long, fast run with a load of human freight behind him In the cars? He goes all over his engine. Every bar and rod and wheel and valve Is carefully examined. And why all this care? Why? Because upon that care depends the safety of the passengers. A cracked wheel, a loose bolt or broken valve may spell ruin. It Is the same with life. A little disorder now may ruin later on. Life Is a serious business, whether we know It or not. : We are here now; a few years ago we were not; a short time and we shall have passed away. Whither? It will be Just to that point toward which we are now directing our course. What man is, whence he came and whither be Is tending are tremendously Im portant questions which demand a straight, fair and square answer. Ignoring them will not prevent the consequence of being on the wrong course; for like them or not, facta are facts, and shutting our eyea to them, strange to say, will not destroy them. The ostrich buries his head in the sand and fancies himself safe; the fox gets himself out of the way. Why not get right down to business, face the truth manfully, examine life honestly and see what we are making of it? That is just what a retreat is. And nowadays they are open to all who desire to make them." WELL POXE. iudaetl from the expressions heard upon all aides, President Wilson made no mistake when he delivered his message to Congress In person. And with that message none have had the temerity to find fault. While brief It was the document ot a statesman, indicating what the masses of the people of this country desire and should have. The re vision of the tariff along the lines suggested by the President may temporarily discommode some Inter eats that are utterly selfish and foreign to the American spirit, but the final result will prove beneficial to the consumer and the worker. KLKtTlOX OK BKNATORS. With Connecticut's ratification on Tuesday ot the amendment to that effect, the direct election by the people ot United States Senators became one of the provisions of the constitution. Thirty-six States, the requisite three-fourths ot all In the Union, now have approved the change. It remains only for the Governors of all States which have acted favorably to formally notify .Secretary Bryan and for him to issue a proclamation announcing the change. The amendment to the constitution is the second within the last few months and the seventeenth to be adopted. It reads: "The Senate of the United Statea shall be composed of two Senators from each State, elected by the people thereof, for six years; and each Senator shall have one vote. The electors in each State shall have the qualifications requisite for elector ot the most numerous branch of the State Legislature. When vacanciea happen lu the representation ot any State In the Senate the executive authority ot such State shall Issue writs of elec tion to fill such vacancies, provided that the Legislature of any State may empower the Executive thereof to make temporary appointments until the people fill the vacancies by election as the Legislature may direct." ' What effect this change will have on the situation In Kentucky can not be definitely determined uutll after the proclamation of the Secre tary of State has been Issued. CANAL TOLL, Only two views can be taken of the clause In the Panama canal act which exempts American coastwise vessels from paying toll and which Kugland wants repealed. There la the.

The Carnegln Endowment takes the English view, despite the fact that our Government owns the great waterway and expended over $400,000,000 for its construction. ) SHOULD FEEL ELATED, i Col. P. H. Callahan, President of the Louisville Varnish Company, has reason to feel elated over the fact that all the recommendations pre sented by him to the Ways and Means Committee ot Congress last January, when he represented the National Varnish Manufacturers' As sociation, were Included in schedule A of the tariff bill introduced ft CongreB last Tuesday. Col. Calla han insisted that If American manu facturers could get raw material as cheaply as other nations they could compete with any other country, and therefore successfully urged that protectionism be thrown to the winds. And this also means that there will be no trust or advance in the prices for paints and varnishes. KNOCKING. The Indiana Catholic has again brought forth its hammer and knocks the home rule bill and the leaders of the Natlonallts party in Ireland. Despite Its assertion, Irish exchanges show that the great bulk of the people of Ireland are loyal to John Redmond and his followers in Parliament and are fully satisfied with the success thus -far achieved and which it is hoped will secure them their own Parliament early next year. The editor of our Indiana contemporary Is a genial and good- natured man, who should not let his Indifferent feeling for two or three individuals ooze through his columns and militate against the Irish cause and people. STRICTLY MACHINE. The Evniug Post is prating daMly about the Democratic machine op posing its protege Beckham in his race for Senator, while his principal backer, Percy Haley, la a typical machine politician, who owes his present prestige to machine politics. created from past administration patronage. PAYS TO ADVERTISE. One of our afternoon dailies states that it will have to side with the autoinob'lists against the roller Jkaters as to use of the streets.

What would the good ladies of the Outdoor Art League have par ents do with their children? Are not our city atreets for the little folks as well as the grown-ups, the joy riders and the fast drivers? These good women were once chlldreu themselves, and It grates upon the fathers and mothers when they hear their little onea called nuisances be cause they seek fresh air and free dom from restricted back yards. If the youth of the city has not the same rights to the streets as are granted others, will the Outdoor Art League please tell why? The fact that "a man has seen fit to sell his automobile" Is not sufficient reason for depriving children of the use of the streets for play. Editing a newspaper comes natural to James J. Regan, National President of the Ancient Order of Hibernian, who now controls the Irish Standard of Minneapolis. The O'Brien brothers made a great paper of the Irish Standard, which will be maintained and Increased by its new owners. May they meet with the success they deserve is the earnest wish of the Kentucky Irish Ameri can.

'Ancer and aatontshment reigns In Irish home rule circles since It be came known that the Bank of Ire land, which alnce 1805 has occupied the premises of the historic Irish Parliament house in Dublin, win not give up the premises for the ne Irish Parliament unless evicted. Ever since home rule became a liv ing question its adherents have spoken in whispers of the time when the Irish Parliament would meet In the famous old assembly house in Dublin, with its famous painting and pictures of the old Irlah Parlia ment as It assembled before the union. The Bank of Ireland Is said to hold an indeterminable lease from the English Government. The Irish Parliament is to meet next year. To think of holding the first Parliament anywhere except In the ancient building seems sacrilege to home rulers. The outcome Is a matter ot excited speculation. TD ANSYLVANIA 1 L N Canada, (en'ISupt.
