MAKING PIUMIIIKSS.
Pres. Wilson, has taken the respon
sibility for the currency bill practical
ly as originally drawn and the hou.e
has given him Its support in an im
pressive manner. Nof only were the
democratic members almost unani
mously In favor of the bill, but twenty
four republicans and fourteen pro
gressives voted with them.
To this extent the bill becomes a
non-partisan measure and is relieved
of the appearance of having been
forced through regardless of senti
ment on the democratic side. It is a
notable feature of the legislation spe
cially desired by Pres. Wilson that "he
has been able to depend upon the
members of his own party with few
exceptions and enlist the support of
progressive elements in the opposi
tion. In this particular the present ses
Fiori of congress has set a new prece
dent. There was need of doing certain
things when the special session as
fremltJed. The country demanded cer
tain legislation, especially on the sub
jects of tariff -Vnd the currency and
the president lias insisted that It
Fhould be enacted. Congress caught
the; spirit of the occasion and though
opposition developed on both sides it
had not sufficient strength to obstruct
the steady progress of the measures
Introduced.
Action has been comparatively
speedy. It was believed an emer
gency existed In both instances and
the bills have been vigorously pushed
through, but It cannot be said that
proceedings have been at any time
hasty or 111 considered. Experience
seemed to have so plainly marked the
course that the solution of the prob
lems presented appeared to be easy
to reach.
It is not expected, however, that
the legislation on the tariff and cur
rency will attain perfection at one
F-tep. That car. be reached only by a
process of legislative evolutions. But
the fundamentals are being laid nnd
on this foundation, retarded as sound
and secure, the perfect superstructure
can be raised.
WANTING TO KNOW.
J When Matthew Arnold, the English
poet and essayist, had completed a
tour of the United States, a friend ask
ed what trait of the American people
Impressed him above others. Arnold
replied:
"Their eagerness for education."
This was years ago, but the charac
teristic continues. The funny writers
like to picture young America us
dragging his stoys to school, but
where that's true it's a simi of bad
teaching. .Most youngsters want to
learn. It's only a matter of making
the teaching Interesting and conven
ient to catch them, a fact true of
grown-ups as well.
One rather recent aid to the educa
tion of older folks is the package li
brary. It was born in that fertile
home of good things, Wisconsin, and
is Just getting under way in Indiana.
The secretary of the state library com
mission will speak on the subject dur
ing exposition week.
Any bunch of folks anywhere in
that state who want to read up on a
livo topic or post themselves for a
debate or an intelligent vote at the
polls may drop a postal to the univer
sity saying what they want to know
ami by return mail will come a pack
age containing articles by well known
writers canvassing the subject on va
rious sides. When they've read tin ir
All the package is returned and sent
somewhere else.
The service is young, yet lat year
in this course li:?.D0 articles in dis
cussion of 1.030 subjects were s?nt to
347 communities. Not everybody can
afford a big library of books or a long
list of magazines and in the small
towns and country public libraries are
few. This plan, therefore, puts the
pick of the world's knowledge right at
your door, In most convenient form,
pared to the very topic about which
you are most curious.
The calls for packages show what
the people are interested in. In Wis
consin, just now, votes for women
have the right of way. That is be
cause women's club throughout the
state are preparing t ask for another
nhow-down. IT-st year it was the in
come tax, then an i-ue.
Indiana can get nothing but benefit
from making the fullest use of these
facilities.
M i:ICAN POLITICS.
Gen. Felix Diaz has been ordered
back to Mexico fiom Europe prelim
inary to the October election. His
recall proceeded from I'res. Huerta.
presumably for the purpose of mak
ing Diaz the administration candidate.
Yet it is by no means certain that
Huerta himself will not rk the of
f'.ce. Thus we observe that politics,
like human nature, is the same the
world oxer. The' United States is con
cerned less as to who the next presi
dent shall be than as to how he is
chosen.
Whether the Me.i'm people elect
Diaz or Huerta or somebody else, so
long as the new president is really
elected and dos not obtain the ultice.
A, SKITKMIIKK 10, 1913
by fraud and violence, the. United
States as a friendly nation sincerely
desirous of seeing Mexico peaceful
and happy, must respect the result.
Huerta and others of that class of
Mexican polituMans. who are unscru
pulous as to their methods of satis
fying their ambitions should have
learned a practical lesson from their
recent experiences. They should un
derstand that assassination will not
be condoned by their neighbor, the
American people, and that if they wish
to retain our friendship and respect
their conduct must be above reproach.
I'res. Wilson, who Is anxious for the
establishment of stable government
In all of the Latin-American repub
lics, will not stultify himself by ap
proving a patched up condition In
Mexico. The reaction must have the
genuine ring of popular approval.
TOrilKAVV BOARDS OF
DIKIXTORS.
Some day, when t'me hangs heavy,
get a list of the directors of the near
est railroad any railroad and scan
it carefully. You may have to get
hold of a directory of directors and a
"Who's Who" to run down their con
nections. But If you're at all inter
ested in how the most important in
dustry in your country, next to gov
ernment, is directed, the bother will
be worth your while.
If it'? an average board, you'll find
bankers on it a-plenty; perhaps also
brokers. There wll be manufacturers
and merchants and a number of men
who go by the name of "capitalists",
which means that they can be pretty
certain to line up with the bankers
in any issues of policy wheri the fi
nancing end and the operating end
come into conflict. And, of course,
some of the hired men will ba on it.
too the president and maybe a vice
president or two.
But you will look in vain tor the
name of any ground-tloor railroader
on it; any shop man or locomotive en
gineer or conductor.
We quite agree with the man who
writes to the New York Evening Bost
that "if 75 percent of the present
members of our railway boards who
do not direct, whoare ignorant vt the
practical details of the business, werei
displaced by men from the cars: and
shops, who know, we should have less
grafting and better and safer oervke."
We've an idea that there would be
some wholesome displacing if the
roads were owned and run by the peo
ple. BACK TO Tin-: SOIL.
Significance attaches to the an
nouncement that r2,0 00 persons hare
registered for lands in the Fort Peck
land lottery, Montana. Many of these
people seeking new lands are from
the middle west. Illinois, Indiana,
Ohio and Wisconsin.
.ome of them are farmers by occu
pation, perhaps most of them, but
whether from the farm, the shop or j
the store they aie seeking better op-!
portunlties for their energies. They
are getting away from the more con
gested districts to build new enter
prises and found new homes., in the
west, which though no longer bound
less offers opportunities to energetic
men of small mo?ns which cannot be
obtained in the o'.der communities.
Xew farms mean larger areas of
producing soil, increased products and
lower cost of living while at the same
time bettering the conditions of those
who seek to change their state from
that of consumer to that of producer.
The country Is becoming long on con
sumers and shoit i n producers. The
.".2,000 seeking farms In Montana will
reverse the order to that extent.
The door of opportunity Is open, not
only in Montana but in Indiana and
other states. The land cultivated is
not producing what It should for the:
labor expended. The country needs
more farmers and better farmers.
Th death of 11. On veterans of the
civil war in 1911 reduces the present
roll of the Grand Army to 160.000.
The Inroads of time are fast putting j
the finishing touch on the noble or
ganization. If those American refugees in Mex
ico don't want to come out why don't
they go back to their homes. It was
a warning, not a command, that the
United States issued.
Gun play should be eliminated from
moving picture shows. The young
should obtain only desirable educa
tion from them.
Philadelphia has established a
rock pile for lazy husbands and the
experience of the flrst day Indicates
that the effect will be salutary.
Japan's persistency may yet force
the United States to make an unpleas
ant remark, much as it will dislike to
do so.
Thaw is having the" time of his life.
Never before has he realized that
pleasure can be found away from the
great white way.
Without the gold standard no cur

"Well, they've put up my name for
the Carlton club.
"Oh, Warren:"
"Well," sharply. "What's wrong
with that?"
"Nothing only you belong to two
clubs already."
"Well, Is there any law against my
belonging to three?" 4
"No of course not only it takes
you away so many evenings."
"Well, you don't expect me to be
tied down here every night and never
go anywhere, do you? A man htui
some social obllgations in a business
w ay. You never seem to understand
that. This club will be an excellent
business asset. I'll be thrown with
a lot of men that might be very useful
to me later on. I should think you'd
be glad of my opportunities glad that
I have a chance to get on instead of
always trying to drag me back."
"I don't drag you back. Warren, and
I think it's most unjust of you to say
that."
Well, you should have married
some mollycoddle who would have
toasted his feet before the tire every
night and let you purr over him."
"Oh, Warren don't say such
things. You know how they hurt."
"Then don't you make such a fuss
when I say I've been put up for one
of the best and most influential clubus
in town. Why, there's a waiting list
there of over two hundred and Vance
thinks I will be put through at the
next board meeting."
"But how how can they do that
when there is so many waiting?" -
"Oh, they have ways of manipulat
ing those things. You wouldn't un
derstand it if I explained. But it
simply goes to show how well I stand
with some of the members. Why, I
happen to know personally that Fred
Hutchins has been on tho waiting list
for two vears and he's worth half a
million."
"Why, I thought he was very nice
don't they want him?"
"Oh, there's no objection to him
he'll go through when they reach his
name in the regular order. But he
don't happen to be near anybody who
knows the ropes."
There was a pause and then Helen
asked hesitatingly:
"Is it an expensive club are the
dues very much?"
"What makes you ask that?" sharp
lv. "What if they are? I told you
this was a matter of business policy.
The connections I make there will be
worth five times the dues."
After a short silence, he said
abruptly:
"I ti.ink I'll have to go down to
Wentz's and order a new Tuxedo. The
one I have is an old cut. I'd like to
try a cheaper ta-i'.or than Wentz this
ti;vie but I'm .afraid to risk it."
Helen thought how fresh and new
his Tuxedo looked, but she said nothing-
. . T
"And my white waistcoats I
haven't looked the mover lately "
"Why you have one you've only
worn only twice, and two others nearly
"Well, that's all right, then. But
I must keep my clothes up. A man
can't afford to have his wardrobe
run down." ,
Was Warren really more selfish than
most men? Helen asked herself when
she was alone. Or was It she who was
at fault? Did she expect more of his
time and of himself than any other
active, ambitious business man would
have given her?
He said she should have married a
mollvcoddle who would have stayed in
every night and let her purr over him.
A man with no ambition, no progress
that was what he meant by a molly
coddle. Was that what she really
wanted? Would she have Warren less
active, less interested in his work, if
she could? No. no; she knew she
would not. And yet she felt that
without being a mollycoddle Warren
could have given her much more time
than he did. He had been out three
evenings last week and now he wa3
preparing to join another club.
If in the next few months they
drifted as far apart proportionally as
thev had in the six months that had
passed where would they then be?
And again her mind came back to
the question she had asked herself so
often, was it some fault of hers? Could
another woman have held him better
have in some way given him more.
x then came a thought that sent
'the. soft color flooding to her face.
Would a child? Would that make
anv difference? Wouid that bring
them closer? Might that be the solu
tion of it all. But if there should

CHAPTER XII. '
The IVrez Family.
In a remote corner of Central pork,
Rosalie was holding- a conference
with Grimaldl, her specially-assigned
detective in the Hanska case. He was
a small Italian of the blond northern
type, a throwback to some remote
Gothic ancestor. He showed his race,
however, In contour. In manner, and
in certain personal peculiarities, as
the care with which he waxed his
mustache, the loud color in his ahirt
and cravat, the neatness of his small
pointed shoes. Schoolmaster that he
had been, linguist that he was, he
spoke English in academic form but
with trimmings of police slang.
"I think," said Grimaldl, "that the
real name is Perez."
"How did you get that?"
"It took a little time. v First I
frisked his room. I went in as the
gas inspector."
"Which was takin risks," admon
ished Rosalie.
"Not the way I did it. The real
inspector Is my friend; I had his
permission to impersonate him."
"Pretty good!" commented Ro
salie. "An you found nothing about
what I'm after?"
"No. That was the suspicious
thing I mean, the absence of any
sign of identification looked curious
to me. I didn't have much time, so I
went straight to the favorable places.
This Kstrilla or Perez had only four
or five books. There was no writing
in them but the fly-leaf was torn out
of all the old ones. I examined his
clothes. They look English to me
certainly they aren't the work of an
American tailor nor yet a Spanish.
Perhaps you don't know that a tailor
generally sews somewhere behind a
pocket a little tag giving the date,
his own name and the name of the
customer?"
"Don't I?" inquired Rosalie,
hundred timet? she had used that
cullarly of tailors as a part of
"mediumship".
"Well," said Grimaldl, "they
A
are
gone!"
Rosalie looked her surprise.
"Gone, every one of them, riped
right out," said Grimaldl. "You
could see where the threads had
been. The same with the hats But
I found one thing which didn't
amount to much, except that it was
an opening. He has a camera. I
don't know wh?- L examined that, un
less it was a hunch. It was foregn
made American boxes are manu
factured by a trust, and they all
look alike. Down by the range
scale I found a nickel plate such as
agents always put on cameras. It
read: 'J. Lichenstein, Cameras and
Camera Supplies, Port of Spain, Trin
idad.' "
"Where's that?"
"Trinidad is an island off the coast
of South America near Venezuela.
Port of Spain is the main town. It's
a British possession, but there are
many French and Spanish residents.
I had taken the precaution, when I
started out, to have the police photo
grapher get a snapshot of this Es
trilla. I took the picture to well,
never mind who ho is. He's lived
all over South America. He knows
every Spanish colony in town. He
helps the police as a stool-pigeon,
which is why I'm not telling his
name. And he gave me what may
be an identification. He's almost sure
that Estrilla is a Spaniard from Port
of Spain named Juan Perez. The
Perez family were cacao growers in
Trinidad. The head of the family
was named Miguel Perez I suppose,
though, you aren't interested in the
family."
"That's just what I want to know."
"Miguel Perez was this man's fath
er if tho stool-pigeon is right in his
identification. The stool-pigeon was
down there about three or four years
ago. At that time, Miguel Perez had
Just died, and this Juan had inherited
the business. It seemed that he
wasn't getting on well with it. At
least, that was the gossip. That's
all oh, yes, the
bered one othe.
sl'll-plgeon remem
thing about Miguel
Perez. He'd had an early romance
with an Engl.sh girl navy people.
j Miguel married her, and she didn't
live very long. After that, he mar
ried again a Spanish girl from Car
acas and Juan Perez was the son of
that marriage. That was about all he
"Still, the camera marked Port
of Spain, :;eems to fix it. somehow."
"It seems to. But, of course, you
can't be certain. He may be a rela
tive and have a family resemblance."
"Your friend didn't know whether
old Miguel rerez had any children
by his flrst marriage to the English
girl?"
"He didn't say, at least."
Rosalie congealed to a pose with
the advent of an Idea.
"Tell me." she asked, "when a
father and a mother are of different
nationalities talk different languages
what language does the baby learn
first the father's or the mother's?"
"Oh, the mother's always."
"So if there was a child from his
flrst marriage to the English girl
he'd talk better English than Juan
Perez?"
"He'd pronounce it better, anyway.
There's no reason why, witn such a
start, a child brought up in Port of
Spain, which is an English possession,
shouldn't speak as good English as"
here Grimaldl was about to say "as
you," but sense of truth restrained
him "as anybody," he concluded.
' And a mother always talks to her
baby in her own language."
"Oh. of course."
"An' if any foreigner you, for in
stance gits real excited an talks
quick, what language does he use?"
"Oh, his own flrst tongue! When
I'm really angry. I always begin to
swear in Piedmont dialect."
Rosalie mused aloud; and in that
musing she cleared up for us one of
her mysteries of method.
"It does look to me," she said, "as
if I'd wasted a lot of time brushin
up my Spanish with the Martinez
Phonograph Method. Still. it's
bound to help here and there. Lis
ten." she addressed Grimaldl. "I did
a turn once never mind what on
the Mexican border El Paso, San
Antonio, an' places like that. Cir
cumstance was such that I had to
learn as much Spanish as I could
my business called for It. I've been
studyin it again lately. You under
stand Spanish, don't you?"
"As well as I do English."
"Then," said Rosalie in Spanish,
"how does this sound? Is it good
conversational Spanish? Tell me
what you think."
"Well." said Grimaldi. "it runs all
right, but any one would know you
weren't Spanish born. Still, it's pretty
good, and I suppose you could fool a
Spaniard for a few words. What are
you trying to do with Spanish?"
"Oh, nothing." replied Rosalie
carelessly. "Well, I must go on.
Keep him shadowed, an whh you git
anything new, you know where to
find me. Good-by."
At home In her own. room again,
Rosalia pondered long, a nervous
finger picking at a musing lip pon
dered until she stood frozen with a
new Idea. Those rings of Miss Es
trilla's she had long wanted a look
at them. Especially that bg diamond
with a curious onyx and gold setting
which she wore on her loft hand.
The forgotten visiting cards in wraps
laid aside at the door; the initials
on a bag; the posy in a ring by
slight clues like these she had found
the way to old roads of tho mind in
all her years of professional endeavor.
Rosalie had noted Miss Estrilla's
care of that ring; noted how she
washed her hands without removing
it. Chance, therefore, would never
give the opportunity. She herself
must make It. She meditated.
Again her finger stopped its drum
ming on her lip and she congealed to
a pose.
"Molly," she was saying to the
maid half an hour later. "I guess
I'll take up Miss Estrilla's dinner
tonight." As though by an after
thought, she picked up a late, edition
of an evening newspaper and laid it
on the edge of the tray.
"Ive brought your dinner myself."
she said to Miss Estrilla. She" put
down the tray, adjusted the napkin,
bolstered the invalid with the pillows,
and took up a cup of bouillon.
"There now, I'll help oh, dearie,
I'm so sorry!" For Rosalie had
stumbled slightly in approaching the
couch, and the bouillon had splashed
over the napkin, the spread, and Miss
Estrilla's hands. Rosalie bubbled
apologies as she hurried about the
room, getting cloth, towels, warm wa
ter. Miss Estrilla was very gracious,
but Rosalie continued to apologize as
she began to scrub her hands.
"Didn't burn you, did it?" asked
Rosalie.
"No; but it's very sticky," replied
Miss Estrilla.
"I can't get under those rings let
me there, my dear." Rosalie deftly
removed the rings, laid them without
a glance on the edge of the tray, and
continued to chatter as she scrubbed.
"I brought ycu up the evening
paper," she said. "You can't read
it, but I thought you'd lik to see the
pictures of that new Spanish tenor
they're ma kin' all the fuss over you
asked me about him the other day.
Remember?" She had finished wip
ing Miss Estrilla's hands; and now
she gave her the newspaper, the
photograph of the tenor folded to the
front. Miss Estrilla took the bait.
Sh moved the paper close to her
eyes. In that second, the deft Rosalie
had made three motions and used her
quick perceptions. There was a line
inside the big ring:
"Miguel Yictoria, 1S73."
"Nov we're ready for dinner," said
Rosalie. "Shall I send down for
more soup? No?" Miss Estrilla
seemed in that moment to miss her
rings. She perceived them on the
edge of the traj and slipped them on.
Before she left, Rosalie spun and
tied another thread of the web she
was weaving so deftly and yet so
cautiously.
"I hate even to mention it," she
saia. "but I've been feelln them
eomin' on today my spells. I know
you said I could have 'em in here
alone with you. I sensed the be
glnnln' of one this afternon. I beat
it this time by workln hard an' shut-
tin' m.v teeth. IT it really grets me 7
If I can't hold it off any longer
I'm likely to be in here 'most any
time."
Miss Estrilla, her face and her
emotions hidden from view by the
eye-shade, answered in a voice which
begs.n calmly, evenly:
"I should be very glad whenever
you wish!" There was a little break
on the last word. Rosalie noted
this. Something was evidently at
work under the calm surface. Could
it be eagerness?
Rosalie did not return at once to
the dining-room, although tie rattle
of dishes and of voices invited. She
sought her own apartment, sat down
on the bed, her chin in her hand
and began talking faintly to herself.
"Identification was straight, all
right. It's them." A pause.
"Think of draggln mother-love Into
such a thing!" A pause.
Wrell.
ain't you faked with this mother stuff
all your life? Looks to me like some
of that lady business had sunk in."
Another pause. "But I never did it
before to turn a trick like this." And
she shuddered. "I'm a softy what
will I ever say to Martin I can't!"
Twin steps sounded on the stairs;
through the half-open door came two
voices those of Betsy-Barbara and
Constance. Evidently, they had
paused at the landing on their way
down to dinner.
"You mustn't go tr pieces now,
dear. You mustn't. You ''need to
keep every ounce of your strength
for th trial!"
"But it's the suspense!" And Con
stance's voice, usually so soft and
low. was shrill with tension. "Oh, I
can't go down and face people. I
have to hold myself in all the time
to keep from screaming! It's killing
me!"
"It'll all go the moment you get
into the dining-room," Bets:'-Barbara
promised. "Come, dear. You must
eat!"
The voices drifted on. Rosalie
raised her face from her hands.
"Wen, it's one or the other, ain't
it?" she said to herself. "But my
God, life's awful awful!"
She never faltered again. She for
got that little crisis, as we all forget

PRAISES GEORGE WYMAX.
If the example set'by the late
George Wyman, a prominent mer
chant of South Bend were generally
followed, it is safe to say that tho con
flict between Capital and Labor would
soon be ended; and it is equally safo
to assert that it will continue until
employers become acquainted with
the spirit with which Mr. Wyman was
imbued. He regarded his employes
as associates, not as hirelings; and
the more deserving of them were
treated as friends. Not to speak of
strikes, discontent was unknown
among them. Their religious convic
tions, no less than their political
preferences and social obligations,
were at all times respected. In a
word. "Do as you would be done by."
was the motto of Mr. Wyman, though
he made no parade of it.
Unknown to any one outside of his
family or circle of intimate friends,
this noble man set aside $150,000 of
his fortune not a colossal one for
distribution among his employes, and
for philanthropic undertakings in
which he took practical interest. It
was his intention to disburse this
sum personally, but death robbed him
of the satisfaction. Now his widow
promptly does so in his name, and in
a letter addressed to the beneficiaries
a letter of which her husband would
be proud she says: "It adds to my
sorrow that he could not have had the
joy of completing the work, but I am
grateful that I can carry out his wish
es, and hope you will accept the en
closed check as coming directly from
him."
A noble and notable benefaction.
One is at a loss which to admire tho
more the generosity of the benefact
