Do Saloons Help a Town? "They say saloons help a lown. Did you ever see a real estate man pot in his circular something like this: 'This town has two smelters, two brick factories, gas and electric plants a Carnegie library, Y. M. C. A., fourteen churches and ten sa loons?' If saloon* help draw people to a town, why do not towns adver tise the saloons more?"— Canon City (Colo.) Record. By ROBERTUS LOVE. I [Coprriffht. 1908. by Robertus Love.] PERSONAL pop ularity counts for much in this world. Partic ularly does It bear weight in politics. No unpopular man ever was elected to office. Still, there are degrees of popu larity, and there are men who possess the quality of lika bleness far above the average of their fellows William EL Taft Is one of these. 'Tersonal magnetism"—he has it in great abundance. An old darky in the south was discussing Mr. Taft's chances for the presidency. He was for Taft because Taft is popular. "What makes Mr. Taft so popular, ancle?" asked a bystander. "His pussonal magnitude," promptly replied Uncle Rastus. It cannot be denied that there is much of personal magnitude about Mr. Taft, who weighs in the neighborhood of 300 pounds when he is in fighting I trim. He is a big man, and he was a big boy. Somehow men of extra avoir dupois usually eujoy a greater degree of popularity than do their brethren of the shrunk shank and the lean and hungry look. Most large men are good natured and jolly. When bigness runs to frame, to head and to heart the coin ! biuatlun Is Irresistible. That is the Taft sort of bigness, for the secretary of war combines with his big frame a large and active intellect and a heart of : human kindliness that beats for all. The Rev. Dr. Lyman ...bbott says. "It is this Intensely human quality in Mr. Taft that gives him his popular sobriquet of Bill Taft He likes men. and he likes all sorts of men except those that are dishonest or disloyal. He was the most popular governor the Filipinos have ever had. This was not wholly because he was absolutely Just, was loyal to their interests, urged the earliest possible substitution of civil law for military ifaw and offered an In vincible opposition to all schemes of exploiting the Islands for the benefit of unscrupulous American pioneers. .He was the personal friend of the FPl pinos; he believed in them, defender them, befriended them, trusted them and—danced with them. This last fact, I am inclined to think, went as far at nonr.r.T taft. any, perhaps as all the others com bined, to i Lake the Filipinos idolize him, as they certainly do. f.:r Judge Taft is in the besl sense «f the term a democrat, lie Is as free from race and class prejudices < f every description as. any man I have ever known. He is as thoroughly a belle 1 er in the motto. "A I Ban's a man for a' that.'" Those who know .Mr. Taft either in- i tJmately or casually testify to his un failing good nature, bis spirit of com radeship, lie Is a man who likes a joke and upon occasion can crack one himself. The Taft smile Is famous be cause of its reproduction in newspa per and magazine pictures. The Taft laugh cannot be reproduced thus, but a recent caller at the war department said after having heard the big cabinet officer laugh. "A great, deep voiced laugh—the Taft laugh, in fine—which ought to be put on a phonograph rec ord and sent to all those sad places on this earth where folks never smile.*' But Mr. Taft can be stern when sternness Is required. He knows now to enforce discipline in tbe army or out of It When Taft was placed In charge of tbe Panama canal work as secretary of war be received a delega tion of steam shovel engineers wno were threatening to strike for more pay. Tbe spokesman said: "Well strike right now If you don't agree to give us this raise." Do I understand you rightly, gen tlemen?' Inquired the secretary. "Do you mean to say that you want that raise before I have decided and that If you don't get it you'll strike?" "Yes; thafs right," replied the other, with a Bwagger. "Then, gentlemen." said the secre tary, "will you kindly step over to that table and write out your resigna tions?" The men didn't want to resign. They reconsidered. Tbe upshol was that ; At Home.

We both wanted it. and there was v tussle for it "I got the shoe, a black eye, a torn finger from a rusty vail in the shoe and a summons for assault and bat tery. 1 "It wasn't a very good start, but i thought I'd give It a fair trial. Of course in nailing the shoe up above the front door I managed to smash my thumb and fall from the stepladder. "Then I sat down and waited for the luck to begin. That shoe seemed to be endowed with the power to at tract trouble In every form. "Duns, bailiffs, the landlord, measles ' and poverty were rarely out of the house, and my faith was shaken. "Then one day, when the rate col lector was standing on the top step, that shoe came down with a crash"— "Ah!" Interrupted the sympathizer. "Luck at last!" "Not a bit of It." sighed the unlucky one.

Women are indefatigable in their analysis of conduct A man accepts a white ray of light for what it is; a woman passes it through a prism and resolves it into its component rays.

The meaning of the word "swastika" Is "It is well." or good luck. The mean ing of the symbol Is more complex. Some folks trace it to the sun. "The emblem Is the sun in motion," argued Professor Max Muller. "A wheel with spokes was actually re placed by what we now call swastika. The swastika Is, In fact, an abbreviat ed emblem of the solar wheel with spokes In It. the tire and the move ment being indicated by the cramprus.

The swastika is found heading the religious symbols of every old nation." The Defect In His Dressing. The professor of surgery in one of England's universities has the reputa tion of being one of the most painstak ! ng a id delicate operators In Britain, thoughtful of the patient and careful in the clinic. One day in the course of a clinical demonstration he turned to a student who had just commenced his studies with the question: "Now. sir. can you tell me what is wrong with my dressing?" The ingenuous youth turned red and preserved a discreet silence. The pro fessor, however, was not to be put off and repeated the question. After a long pause the youth stammered out in a fit of desperation: "Well, sir, if you insist on my telling you. I shourd say your tie is not quite straight."—London Globe The Son's Answer. After his son's great success with the "Dame aux Camelias" Alexandre Dumas wrote to him as though a stran ger, congratulating him on the book and expressing a desire to make the author's acquaintance.

That historic hit of ground l.nown to tbe world as Boston Cuuiinttu has been the background of vi . > a strange and picturesque scene, .--urely not one of tbe varied events which have been acted upon it presents a quainter pic ture than one which took place about 1750. Mr. Francis Drake describes the occurrence in bis article in "The Memo rial History of Boston" on "Life In Boston In the Provincial Period." In 1720 an attempt was made in Bos ton to encourage the art of spinning and to establish schools where the process could be taught to tbe poor. It was recommended that twenty spin ning wheels should be provided by the town for tbe use of children sent from the almshouse and a premium allowed of £5 for the first piece of linen spun and woven. In 1747 a society was organized for the encouragement of the Industry, and the fourth anniversary was publicly celebrated. "In the afternoon." says an old ac count. "300 young female spinsters, de rently dressed, appeared on the com mon with their spinning wheels. The wheels were placed In three rows, a female at each wheel. Weavers also appeared Jri garments of their own weaving. There was an Immense num ber of spectators." The Size of Great Men. The Iron Duke tuts always been a mystery.
