There appears also, doubtless without design, his lack of any real sym pathy With tiie inexorable duties of his office and his temper amental ability to understand the thought and traditions of the .sen ice. More perhaps than any other member of that queer cabinet, Mr. Oaniels haves the impression of his obsession by the same passion f:r phrases and the same insist ence upon unchallenged and in disputable premises that of lato illustrate the president's discus sion or evasion of realities. In a large degree the length of the secretary's report is attributable to the injection of non-essential or settled things all of which hae with grim humor and amused comment been passed up on by the people. Why repeat them, save, perhaps, in an apolo getic tense ? We hear, for example, too much of the wonderful education al system of "the greatest unlver Mty in America" and too little of what the constituents of sea force and what the reorganization and readjustment of the personnel fhould be. Auain we are forced to listen to the temperance rally effusions of the fatuous general erd r '.'.. which, stripped of gen eralities and left naked, brands naval r Ulcers as irresponsible and incapables that must, despite themselves, be saved from the demon rum. We have previously called attention to the efforts of this association to dis credit 'ec'y Daniel's and his udminls tratiop. of the navy department, es pecially since the stand he has taken In fa or of government manufacture ; -.f its own war equipment.

The United FtaU-.s bureau of rduea- tion has agreed to cooperate w ith the league of compulsory attendance oifi- rials in the collection of Ftatistics Waring on attendance problem?. As 1 art of the movement for Letter at- tendance, it has been urged that a permanent 'census bureau be estab lishctl and maintained in every city in the Lnlted States. And thus the dc mand for more government activity. land a consequently larger government expense for tax-paying grouches to grumble over, continues to grow. i L.(; i:i:i not follow Tin: CI loss. Any effort to draw this nation into war with Mexico, or induce it to in terfere in behalf of any religious de nomination or its properties, must fail and ought to fail. This is neither a Protestant nation nor a Catholic na tion. It owes allegiance to no church, r.or protection to any church proper ties outside its own domain: this es pecially, when, as in Mexico, it in volves u condition purely of Mexican making. It would be just as legiti mate for this government to inter fere in Mexico in behalf of Wall st. interests, as it would be to Interfere in behalf of a church, and it is beyond cur legitimate province to undertake either. A letter written by Uishop Alerding, of Ft. Wayne, regarding conditions in Mexico was given out Sunday for reading in the various churches of the diocese. He calls upon the federal government to interfere in behalf of tlie Catholic church properties there. The same condition prevails with regard to the Catholic churches in Mexico as does with regard to the protestant missions in Turkey. We feel for them, hut our federal supreme court held following the Spanish American war. that the constitution does not follow the flag, and wc be lieve that it would be equally justiiled in holding that the Hag need not, nec essarily, follow the cross. There can be but two excuses for United States interference in either Turkey or Mexico; one to protect the interests of and to resent insults to the United States, and the other for purely humanitarian reasons the iormer or wnicn can in no way m- volve church rights, while the latter can make no distinction as between priests, missionaries and their eon 'erts, and any other type of people with souls.

Dec. l.V No l.rnr. or insect, or worm is so lowly or j humble that Dr. L. O. Howard cannot j call it by its tirst name. He givec .a bug or a mere insect a single glance and knows its family history, hercdi ary traits, and minor vices. The fact is that Dr. Howard knows practically all the things about the average bug or moth or worm that there are to know. He is the government's chief entomologist, or, to use a lay term, bugologist. For more than oO yearn he has been studying about all man ner of creeping things, and today, while house hies and boll weevils and winged ants and June bugs and a lot of things like that are a good deal of a nuisance, yet they are nothing liko the pest they would bo if it were not for Dr. Howard. Kxcept for Howard ;.nd the bureau of entomology the boll weevil alone would be just as great a pest as the man who buttonholes you and persists in telling the latest Font story. Iiefore proceeding further with this learned scientific discussion, one nat urally pauses to inquire what sort of man Is he who devotes nearly his whole life to bugs. Bugs and insects have to be handled and understood, of course, but many of us in casting about for a life work say to tho world : Get somebody else to study your hugs. Unless it would be danc ing the modern dance steps, there is probably nothing that most of us would care less about doing than to start in and spend 50 years learning i he main facts about our leading bugs. Yet Dr. Howard has elected to do 'hat and he is not a queer person cither. He is not at all like the pro fessor (me sees in farce comedies with specs, golf pants and a butterfly net. To the contrary. Dr. Howard looks rather chunky and prosperous and just like regular folks. He has a small, scientific-looking, general purpose set of brown whiskers, which might lead one to take him for a consulting pill doctor or surgeon; but one would be more likely to pick him for a captain of industry the head of a railroad or a bank. When Howard was a youngster seven years old, in Ithaca, N. Y., his mother took him on a trip to a point on Long Island. If he had not gone away from Ithaca tluit summer, somebody else would probably be our chief inspector today. While visit ing on Long Island Howard fell in c. ,.f i.iavmnj u-iin amused themselves hunting cocoons i and watching them hatch butterflies. ! till CJ. fCllIf-, He grew so intensely interested in that sort of thing that when he got back home he went into the cocoon j business on his own account. HiSjtiI:lt ir ho u-onbl follow un his scicn- parents bought him books containing life size portraits of beetles and pinching bugs, and he read them while other boys were busy with their Nick Carter or geography. Yet lie was not a queer boy. He played base ball and other sports with the boys who did not know about bugs as he did, and he was the best player of the bunch. Today he is a good golf plaver. doesn't lie about his score. and at night reads the most frivolous kind of detective stones. He is thor- OUKhly human ani likeable. Ah, yes. but we were telling how 1 . . 1.. ........ .-..I . . . I .1 I (V.i uc napiencu n go m mi ou-,s a work. All through the public ehool-e the teachers made him write i essays about his favorite insects and he was regarded as a youthful au thority on the ways of the insects t that buzzed about his home locality.

He; liked the engineering course fairly well, all except the mathematics. All his life he had been a rather poor mathematicker and figures annoyed "im. He could do ordinary addition anil subtraction, but when it came to hlllhrr algebra and trigonometry he. wished he were somewhere else. Without saying anything to his mother, he switched over 'into the scientific department of the university and began to take all the courses thy had which dealt in any way with bugs. Commencement day came and mem bers of the graduating class were iight-hearted and gay, all except Howard. He fcnew that he would have to confess at last to his mother about the wicked way in which he had let her believe he was making a mechanical engineer of himself, when Vi. ti-M..- rrin Mi ifi(wi'it(ri( ll i tii w 1 f -ti ! lie i .1 r it iini 'i i.iiius iiiiii.- 11 ii iiu strange insects and becoming a scien tist.

Anon) niotis. IF we admit the indictment that "he who hath not music in his soul is fit for treasons, stratagems und spoils," or words to that effect, we have our neighbor on the west convicted, at least in our own minds. He loves not poetry, and he who loves not poetry, loves not music. Kgo. our neighbor is "fit for treasons, stratagems and spoil." Still, we would not condemn him utterly. We shall first prescribe the reading of the poetry that appears trom time to time in the M. P. in tho fervent hope that it may soften his lump of cynicism. ESPECIALLY are we hopeful since he himself is not altogether immune to the divine afflatus. As witness his effusion on the Christmas tree. WE have been in the newspaper game long enough to know that while the mule may be trained or hoppled to stop its kicking the public can't be cured. Hut there are more reasons why the public should kick than for a mule to indulge in its favorite pas time. If the public should cease to kick we fear progress would cease. Heautiful Snow. Once more it snows, the cold wind blows and we have no time with oth ers to talk, for with frosty nose and freezing- toes w- must soon get out and shovel the walk. At the break of day we make our way to the sidewalk in front where we are soon at our task and we stop not to say why the snow-drifts we slay when the wonder ing pedestrians pause before us to ask. At noon we're dead beat, so we stop in to eat, then with shovel in hand wo walk out as before, and with half frozen feet from the snow and the sleet, we renew our onslaught on tho j-now-drifts once more. Tho day is dy- WHAT THE GOOD MAYS FROM TKRRK JIAUTi:. The people of Terre Haute do not seem to have any fear that the expo-i-ure of crime and corruption in their Uty, and the punishment of the crim 'nals and corruptionists will injure the town or in any way "hurt business." What they chiefly fear is that Terro Haute may be injured by the main tenance of existing conditions. Tho chamber of commerce has already indorsed the cleanup movement and contributed money to it. This is true of the women's clubs and the Y'oung Men's Business club. All these organ izations are deeply interested in the campaign that has for its object the cleansing of the political life of the town. What has given Terre Haute a bad name is, not the effort to redeem it, but the shameful condition that has existed there. Always the men who protit by crime and corruption, by il legal liquor selling and fraudulent elections, raise the cry that business is hurt by the effort to stop these prac tices. Their interest, of course, is purely selfish. What they fight for is, not the good name of the city, but the graft on which they fatten. Yet occasionally substantial citizens, and men who should know better, are in fluenced by these hypercritical argu ments. But the people of Terre Haute have learned from a long and bitter expe- rience that tho real enemies of the j town and its trade are those who de- . bauch its political life. Naturally. therefore, they are rallying Vj the sup port of those men who are trying to drive the scoundrels from power and into jail. The chamber of commerce, we must assume, is not indifferent to the commercial welfare of the town, composed, as it is, of business men. It realizes that business has been hurt by bad government and corrupt poli tics. So it is fighting and working for good government and clean politics, feeling that these are the best adver- isomemf tnat a town can nae. .... . ..... And ...... that, ot course, is the trutn. w un the people back of this new movement nnm i n i u mumni in, t0. This obi friend told Howard tific tourse by studying medicine there was still a chance that he might amount to something. So. in the fall of 'TS ho began to tit hims If for a doctor. Meanwhile his fame as an hisecter had spread to Washington, and before he had been at medicino many weeks he was offered a place as assistant in the bureau of entomology, in which bureau lie is now chief. He probably knows more about combating bad insects and mothering good insects than any man alive. (Copyright. 1 f 1 4 . by Fred C. Kelly.) SOME NEWS NOTES. Davles Lumdrv. Both phones.
