At a social gathering of business
men recently Prof. Frederick II. In
gersoll's project to establish a sym
phony orchestra in .South Bend was
one of the topics of conversation and
when it became known that it would
be necessary to obtain employment
for a number of musicians to give the
organization p i.anency the opinion
was freely expressed that employers
will be glad to give what assistance
they can in that way.
This disposition on the part of em
ployers will remove one of the chief
difficulties in trie way of Prof. Inger
soll'a ambition to establish here an
organization which will be a source
of pride to the city. If the musicians
desired can be made permanent resi
dents of South Bend the uniform high
quality of the orchestra will be as
sumed. Prof. Ingersoll's capabilities as a
musician are well known and the pub
lic will have eonlldence in his pur
pose to maintain th orchestra at a
high standard without a seltlsh
r loney-making motive behind it. All
that Prof. Ingersoll asks is that the
organization bo sustained. That will
be the compensation most highly
prized by him. He will do the rest.
To give emphasis to this purpose of
leaving the success of the project to
the voluntary patronage of the public
Prof. Ingersoll will not levy the usual
graft of program advertising on tho
merchants of the city.
The support of the orchestra must
come voluntarily out of the desire of
the community for such an organiza
tion. It will not be dragged from an
unwilling constituency. Prof. Inger
soll prefers that the enterprise shall
live or die on its own merits. This
puts it up Matly to the box otfice.

When he starts any place on a
train, Hep. Walter L. llensley of Mis

his scat and then makes a bee line at
once for the smoking compartment.
Hut his object Is not so much to
smoke as to engage other travelers in
conversation in regard to their views
on the upkeep of the United .States
llensley is the man who got up the
resolution for a naval holiday a year
long. The idea is for the United
States and Great Britain to get to
gether and interest other major

build no more battleships for a .year,
and see if everything doesn't go on
just as well.

proposition and make a few converts

ventured to say:
"What do any of us care whether
they build one battleship or six bat
tleships?" "You seem to be overlooking the
fact," suggested llensley, "thut the
average American family has to pay
about $50 a year toward the expenses
of tho national government; a big
item of which is the navy."
"Well, I don't suppose my share is
more than about a nickel." went on
the man blandU; "I have very little
taxable property. It may cost some of
the big fellows something, but why
should I worry? Let them figure it
"I'll bet you though," suggested
llensley, "that you pay more in fed
erals taxes than Andrew Carnegie."
And the man shouted at the ab
surdity of the idea.
"Tho federal taxes are all indi
rect," reminded llensley. "Now, you
pay a good deal of money to the gov
ernment in taxes on the cigars you
smoke. Mr. Carnegie doesn't use to
bacco. You probably drink a little.
Mr. Carnegie doesn't. He is a mod
est dresser. You probably buy three
suits of clothes to his one. You
doubtless eat twice as much as he
does. So I imagine that you pay more
federal taxes than he does."
The man said little at the time, but
he was greatly flattered and puffed
up over what llensley had told him.
A half hour later llensley over
heard the man fussing with his wife
as they were walking to the dining
car. He asserted his manhood in this

A pair of out-of-town visitors sat
in one of the senate galleries looking
over the human exhibits down below.
They made comments on the appear

"Ah, what an odd-looking man is
that!" exclaimed one of the pair,
"Imbed, isn't he!" agreed the other
one. "I don't know that I ever saw a
face quite like that. He Isn't at all
bad looking, but how unusual."
"Yes," went on the nrst one, "he
looks so indignant all the while as
If somebody ha lust insulted him."
"And did you ever see a senator
with a plaid vest just like that? I
wonder who he can be?"
It chanced that a few moments
later Sen. Newlands himself entered
the gallery and the visitors got an
even better look at him. He sat down
directly in front of them and con
versed with a woman who had been
sitting there for some time with a
look of quiet amusement on her face.
The woman was Newlands' wife.

Helen could not help but smile at

Helen slipped in as cautiously as she

Helen was instantly awake. Warren

talk about losses on account
of the practices of a certain
real estate dealer who recently
filed a petition in bankruptcy,
showing losses to creditors of

Had these parties required
