ONE VOTE AND FOUR BABIES
LATEST ROOSEVELT IDEA.
Believes in Woman Suffrage and Big
Families, He Says.—Has no Use
For Childless Families—Says They
Are Not Good Citizens.
Parenthood: raised to the fourth
power is the burden of Col. Roose
velt's utterance under the head' of
"Race Decadence'' in the current
■number of The Outlook.
The colonel asserts that where
there are one, two or even three chil
dren to a marriage, It is nevertheless
a sterile marriage. But four children
let a man and his wife out of the
class that he abhors. He also believe;
in letting the woman who wishes to
vote, do so, but still her primal and
most essential duty is motherhood.
MARRIED MEN—If you feel that
you have been a failure, politically,
commercially, artificially; if, after all
the struggle to have a full breakfast
table waiting for the family, life is
still drear and empty and you are re
solved on giving up, there is yet one
avenue to success open to you. Be a
daddy to the fourth power.
Married WOMEN—Disheartened,
and with a blank because of the loue
someness attendant upon, the nurtur
ing and care of one, two, or even
three children, would you still reach
full womanhood and be numbered out
side the abhorred? Have another.
Only in this way can you attain
final feminine goal; because oî^.
when you have mastered the quad
ruple principle have you performed
your primal duty, become fit for the
suffrage. To put it in arithmetical
progression:
1 child makes a Ma.
3 children makes 1 Sterile.
4 children make 1 Mother.
1 mother makes 1 Voter.
1 voter makes Trouble.
1 trouble makes More.
Says the colonel: "I believe la a
full equality of rights. If women wish
to vote. I favor it—although I do not
think it anything as important for
them or the state as are many other
things that they can and should do;
—but to exteu.d my reference for and
belief in a woman who does her duty
measures also my contempt for the
woman who shirks her primal and es
sential duty. The man who either is
responsible for or acquiesces la ster
ility in marriage is even more con
temptible than the woman, but he is
the only person more contemptible.
"Exactly as the measure of our re
gard for the soldier who does his du
ty in battle is the measure of our
sconiii for the coward who flees, so
the measure of respect for tfTe true
wife and mother is the measure of
our scorn and contemptuous abhor
rence for the wife who refuses to he
a mother.''
Race suicide, the colonel says, is as
Race suicide, the colonel says, is as
much the fault of the man as of the
woman, and they must go through a
great mental cleaning and "come to
their senses'' before they reach the
understanding that there is no other
happiness comparable to that of hav
ing a large supply of chiidrtc. to make
the home happy—and do the errands.
A large family is also useful, al
though the colonel does not say so,
in constantly reminding you of the
high cost of living.
Still, if you cannot afford eight or
ten youngsters, the colonel implies
you are eligible to the parent class
with four, and unless you attain this
averaige you are helping to put t'ms
great and glorious country on the to
boggan. "The race cannot go ahead,
it cannot keep its (numbers even,'
Roosevelt prophecies, 'unless the av
erage man and woman who are mar
ried and who are capable of having
children have a family of four.
"The American stock is being
cursed with the curse of sterility,'
the colonel continues. "The guilt}
and the innocent alike are informed'
that sterility is due to coldness, to
selfishness, to love of ease, to shrink
ing from risk, to an utter and piti
ful filure in sense of perspective and
in the power of weighing that which
makes the highest joy and to a root
ing out of the sense into improper
channels.
But the native born man is not
forced to bow alone under this de
nunciation. The immigrant also gets
a blast. Roosevelt finds the new citi
zen is following the example he sees
set before him.
"The same racial crime,' the col
onel says, "is spreading rapidly
inioug '.be sons ana daughters of im
migrants.
'If it w-ne <o.dincd to Americans
of old stock, while it would be a mat
ter of shame to us of the old stock,
we could at least feel that the tradi
tions and principals and purposes of
the founders of the Republic would
find their descendants by adoption;
and iu such cases, I, for one would
heartily throw my fate with the men
of alien stock who were true to old
American ideas.—Idaho Falls Registei
SMALL PERCENT IDAHO DAIRY
CATTLE HAVE TUBERCULOSIS.
Only two per coet of the dairy cat
tle of Idaho are aïéeeted with tubercu
losis, according to a statement made
yesterday by Dr. Paul P. Taylor of
Weiser, veterinarian in the bureau of
auimal industry of the United States
government. Dr. Taylor states that
no other state in the union has such
a low record on tubercular cattle and
generally.he says.the dairy herds are
in excellent condition. He believes
that what little trouble exists here
will soon be eradicated altogether.
The territory covered 1 by Dr. Tay
lor includes all points in Idaho and
Oregon traversed by the Oregon
Short Line and he has been very ac
tive this spring inspecting dairy
herds and sheep. He finds that the
sheep are almost entirely free irom
scab, the re being cc.ly a few isolated
bands near the Nevada line which
have the disease, and the owners
have been warned to be careful of
the herds and to comply with the
state law for dipping.
STATE LAND BOARD MEETING.
In an efifort to bring to a final set
tlement the question of the selection!
of lieu lands by the state in place of
sections 16 and 36, which are includ
ed in government reserves, Governor
James H. Hawley and Attorney Gen
eral D. C. McDougall passed through
Pocatello today en route to Washing
ton, D. C., to consult with the secre
t.ry of the interior and with the con
gressmen from this state.
This matter was taken up by the
legislature last winter and a commit
tee was sent to Washington for the
purpose of inducing the government
officials to come to some satisfactory
agreement, but the matter was left
in the air and in view of the recent
tint suit which has been filed in the
supreme court of the state, the trip
was yesterday decided upon.
The suit which was recently filed
in the supreme court was to test the
constitutionality of the recent legisla
tion to the effect that the state lias a
right to release their lands in gov
ernment reserves when these happen
to be sections 16 or 36 and to select
others in their stead.—Tribune.
SECURED POSITION AS GUARD.
F. S. Fackrell, who so creditably
served as turnkey in the county jail
for two years under John T. Danilson
sheriff, has secured a position as
guard in the penitentiary under War
den Snook, and left Monday to as
sume his duties. Mr. Fackrell is a
man worthy of the trust imposed in
him by tlie warden, and will make
good there or any place else cir
cumstances put him.
AVIATION MEET AT IDAHO FALLS
Idaho Falls will enjoy the novelty
of an aviation meet on Tuesday,April
25th.
Such was the decision of the board
of directors of the Club of Commerce
Tuesday afternoon, at which time Mr.
Rickard, representative of the syndi
cate of aviators, completed the details
with the board. The syndicate in
cludes such daring and prominent avi
ators as Brookins, Curtiss, Parmalee,
Willard and others who have perform
ed such astounding feats in the fly
ing machine world.
This syndicate has just finished an
engagement in Salt I^ake, and is
scheduled for Boise, and following
that event have an open, day between
Boise and' Butte, and it was decided
that Idaho Falls was nearly centra!
enough to pull off a most successful
meet,and it will be a novelty in many
ways, mot the least of which is that
this will be the first time in history
of aviation that a meet has .been held
in a town of less than 25,000 people.
The Club of Commerce has assume«
heavy expense to make this meet sue
cessful In every way, and this will be
one opportunity in a lifetime for the
people of neighboring towns to wit
ness the marvelous machines that
have solved the problem of flying.
Special trains will be run from St.
Anthony .Ashton, Rexburg, Sugar City
Rigby, Shelley, Blackfoot and Pocatel
lo, and there will be a great crowd of
people to witness the event. Many
people will also attend' from the west
ern part of the state. A special rate
will be announced later, and the price
of admission and grandstand not be
ing over a dollar will make it within
the reach of every individual to take
in this great spectacle.
Several flights will be given dur
ing the afternoon, and the attraction
is guaranteed.
The individual who nglceets to see
these daring bird-men, when the op
portunity is offered so close at home,
is indeed mssir.g the show of his life
time.
Keep the date in mind, Tuesday,
April 25th, and watch for further in
formation in anouncenients.

DEAR OLD DAD IS TO
BE RECOGNIZED ERE LONG.
Ait Iasi, since tlie days of the com
ing into the garden, is poor, over
worked papa going to receive some
recognition for the services lie lias
performed, aid it is all through an
appreciative woman, ithat this is
brought about. Dad is to have a day
set apart for him. It is to be a warm,
balmy Sunday in June, and pa is to
be tunned loose, stern mother is i;:o
ing to be compelled to take his tie
rope off early in the morning and
turn, him in the back yard to roam
around, just as he likes, a::d if he
slips over the fence, lets a "Cou-ee '
out of him as long as tlie howl of a
gray wolf, attracts the attention of
some other "old man,'' tlie two hie

spreading sage brush, and there fight
over again the Battle of Suuinybrook •
or Crystal Rock, little mother don't
dare say a word when the battle sear
red veteran returns with a cock and
bull story ten yards long about how
he got it.
Credit for this great moive in behalf
of the old man must be given to Mrs.
J. B. Dodd of Spokane, Wash. The
Boise Statesman gives the following
account of her efforts in '.his direc
tion:
There is a strong llklihoud that 'the
third Sunday of every June will be
nationally observed as "Fathers'
day'' and special sermous will be
preached In honor of the man who
daily sets his face to the world with
a smile, foregoing the pleasure of the
company of his little ones during the
long day and contented that he is
giving them the best that his labors
can produce. To Mrs. J. B. Dod'd of
.Spokane is due the credit for origin
ating "Fathers' day,'' and last year
it was fittingly observed in that city
by the wearing of a rose, while spec
ial sermons for fathers were preach
ed from nearly every pulpit in the
city. So successful was the day that
a national campaign for its ob
servance has been started which is
likely to bear fruit.
EASTER WINDOWS
ARE ATTRACTIVE.
Many of the firms of the city took
special pains to decorate their win
dows attractively for Easter,
succeeded admirably. Among, those
attracting the greatest attention was
the grocery of W. E. Brown. Tlie
large window there was a veritable
fairy easter bower. There were little
chickens, just hatched out, two big
blue hors, which had assumed a gala
robe for the festive occasion, rabbits,
with pure white coats, and the
setting artistically arranged, made
the Whole a beautiful Easter window.
The windows in the Palace and Pion
eer drug stores were also attractive
and made many pedestrians stop and
look. Prettily decorated windows,
whether at a holiday time or not.

are an advertisement that brings re
turns to the store, town and entire
community, and the merchants of
Blackfoot are to be congratulated up
