because, of any particular dislike of
South Uend for Lafayette, but because
the Murdocks, chief owners of the
local street railway and interurban
lines entering this city, from very
apparent selfish motives, pulled so
hard to keep this city off tho lino al
together, and to have Iafayettc favor
ed. Everybody knows that good roads
arc more or less of a competitor for
Interurban traffic, hut the Murdocks
have not done so much for South
Hend through their street railway sys
tem centering hero, that wo need caro
to do much of anything for their ben
efit, or especially, to forego anything
for ourselves. When Samuel Murdock
threw his force against outh Bend in
favor of Lafayette, despite the good
money that tho people of this vicinity
are paying into the coffers of his
company for a service they are not
getting, he not only put himself hut
Jifayette outside the pale of local
friendship, both as to Dixie highway
and street railway matters, and that
the South Bend delegates contributed
to having Lafayette sidetracked from
all routes, Is a matter on which they
deserve to be congratulated quito as
much as for their accomplishment in
finally bringing tho road through this
way.
That Illinois and Ohio got their
route fixed first accounts for the first

TRUTH ABOUT THi: A11MS TAHITI-.
If the German government and the
German newspapers would tell tho
German people the truth about tho
pale of war supplies, there wouldn't
bo such resentment againrt Americans
as there is today.
Tho truth isn't merely that interna
tional law and practice have always
sanctioned tho sale of arms and am
munition by neutrals to belligerents.
It isn't merely that it is necessary for
non-military nations like ours to pre-
perve this ripht for the sake of their
own safety, so that they may bo able
to obtain arms for themselves in case
they should be attacked unexpectedly
by a well prepared nation. It isn't
merely that the German government
has always recognized this principle,
und does not now venture to call tho
American practice illegal. The truth
is that Germany has uniformly prac
ticed the very thing that the Germans
now condemn.
It was the Germans that is to say,
the Krupps, the grtat manufacturers!
of arms and ammunition at Psscii
who armed Uussia in her war with
Japan. It v. as the Germans who sold
Great Britain the ast quantities of
munitions required to put down the
South African rebellion, even while
Germany was prefessirv-,' the strongest
1-ympa.thy with the Boers. It Has the
Germans who s..bl Spain a good share
of the ammunition she used . against
us in our Spanish war. It was the
Germans who p-.anbkd guns, rifles,
shell and cartrictat-s for the Turks in
the recent war of the Balkan states
for real freedom and German. y even
provided gunners to Pe the guns. It
was the Gerir.ar.s who shipped rifies
nnd cartridges 'r.to Mexit o las' year.

A woman who suns herself "A
Mother," wrltea a lotter whoso pur
pose Is to voice n protest at militar
ism. She deplores all things which
tend to foster a military spirit. Par
ticularly does she criticise the Boy
Scout movement.
Dear lady, wo aro in hearty accord
with you as to militarism i i its ac
cepted sense. As it is demonstrated
in the old world, we want none of it
over hero, but you are touching us
on a tender spot when you seek to dis
credit the Boy rout movement. Just
yesterday we beard of a lad of 11 sav
ing the life of c. companion of 12, who
was about to drown. The rescuer
was a Boy Scout, taught to swim, the
other ivaa not. A Rain, we read of
four young school boys on an outing
trip. A forest fire broke out near
thorn. Thousands of acres of timber
nnd the homes of a number of settlers
were threatened if tho fire spread.
These boys threw themselves into the
breach. For four hours they fought
the flames liko grown men and fi
nally subdued them.
They were Boy Scouts, trained to
act in just such an emergency, and
meeting It, acted. Were not these
things "worth while?"
And these are by no means isolated
cases but similar things occur each
day.
The Boy ?cout movement is teaching
boys the world over to he true men.
It is preparing them to fighu the bat
tles of peace, not war. It is instilling
in them manliness, self-sacrifice, self
rcllanco and self-control.
Besides, it is making them physic
ally better each day. It Is up-breeding
as well as up-building. These
boys arc brought face to face with
nature at its best, taught to call the
trees of the forest and the flowers of
the dale by name, to learn the habits
of the wild animals and their haunts.
In short, the Boy Scout movement
stands for better boys simply that
and nothing more. Isn't that what
all mothers should wish?
IIOXOKAKY TITLMS.
New York papers, egged on by the
un, are raising hob with the state
regents for addressing tho governor,
in an official communication, as "his
excellency.' The Sun declares titles
are not authorized by law in this
glee-orious land of liberty.
Maybe not, but what's that got to
do with it, we want to know? This
is a case we want to argue; there's a
lot at stake. Because it's a land of
liberty is why we ehm't need any law.
What law is there for "colonels" in
Kentucky or "judges" in Ohio. Yet
every other man is a judge or colonel
in those states and some others, too.
And, right here, we address a jus
tice of the peace as "your honor."
Where's the law for that? Or, for
that matter, whore's tho honor? And
we call a preacher "doctor" when he
actually wouldn't know a toothache
from a stone-bruise.
And what law is there for calling
the old man "boss." There ain't any:
it's just natural, that's all.
No slree! The Sun is all wrong.
"Kxcellency." so applied, means cue
who has excelled. surpassed, out
footed, etc. Didn't the X. Y. gov
ernor do all those things to his op-
j ponent? Sure he did. Therefore, he
has his title coming to him. There's
such
a thing as being too blamed dem
ocratic. First thing you know, we will
be calling each other "Citizen" Instead
of "Mister" as the French did in the
Commune days. How weuM you like
that
When we give up our "excellencies,"
"colonels," "judges" and "your
honors"' life won't be worth living.
That's all lots of folks get out of it. I

Inexpensive as to be within the reach
of all. Wo want to see them kept:

It's a little more comprehensible to
learn that our average wealth per
capitals Sl.IK.". We can't frm a
definite idea of that, either, but most
of us know perfectly well that it's
more than we've not.
The intelligible fart, however, about
these figures, is that they represent an
enormous increase in the wealth of
the American people-. The proportion
means something, if the totals do not.
The national wealth has more than
doubhd in twelve years. It increased
more from 1 000 to 1912 than It had
done in the previous twenty years.
of course, the population was in
creasing, too. thus limiting the in
crease per capita, but the wealth ln
creased still faster. In IS SO we own
ed, on an average, $S70 worth of

$1.D." apiece. That was an increase
of ?.Z per cent in twenty years. In
the next twelve years the gain was 70
per cent. That is, since the new
century began, we've been getting rich
three times as fast.
.Mom-: loyal cinj;s.
All over the country there has been
a remarkable rush for naturalization
papers lately. It began with the sink
ing of the Lusitania. The heaviest
demand was naturally in the most
populous c.Miter New York city. The
eourity clerk reported that 70 per
cent of those applying for their first
paper were Germans, and most of
the others were Austrians. "I've seen
nothing but Teutonic faces in my office
for two weeks," ho remarked. And
county clerks in many oth r commu
nities have told the same story.
It is another evidence of the fact
that the people of Teutonic origin in
this country, even those who hae ar
rived most recently and so have been
least influenced by American institu
tions, are Americans in spirit, and
prefer American citizenship to any
thing that the old world has to effer
them. They have come here to stay,
and at the first threat of trouble be
tween the old country and the new,
the late comers hasten to cast their
lot with us, just as their fellow Teu
tons of longer residence hasten to give
assurance of their sincere loyalty.

When I was a farmer lad I noticed
that whenever we bought a new cow
and turned her into the pasture with
the herd there was a general inclina
tion on the part of tho bunch to mako
the new cow think sho had landed in
the orthodox nerditlon.
They would hook her away from the
salt, chase her from the water, and
the long-horned ones for several
weeks would lose no opportunity to
give her vigorous digs, pokes and
prods.
With horses it was quite the same.
And I remember one particular little
black mare that we boys used to
transfer from one pasture to another
Just to see her back into a herd of
horses and hear her hoofs play a re
sounding solo on their ribs as they
gathered around to do her mischief.
Men are animals just as much as

The introduction of a new man in
to an institution always causes a
snail panic of resentment, especially
if he be a person of some yower.
Even in schools and colleges tho
new teacher has to fight his way to
overcome tho opposition.
In a lumber camp the newcomer
would do well to take the initiative,
liko that little black inaro, and meet
the first black look with a short-arm
jab.
But in a bank, department store or
railroad office this cannot be. oo the
next best thing is to endure, and win

promotion for the good men in your

is a rule which looks well on paper,

the letter.
The business that is not progressive
is sowing the seeds of Its own dissolu
tion. Life is a movement forward,
and all things in nature that are not
evolving into something better are
preparing to return into their constit
uent elements.
One general rule for progress In
big business concerns Is the introduc
tion of new blood. You must keep
step with the business world. If you
lag behind the outlaws that hang on
the flanks of commerce will cut you
out and take you captive, just as tho
wolves lie in wait for the sick cow of
the plains.
To keep your columns marching you
must introduce new methods, new in
spiration, and seize upon the best that
others have invented or discovered.
The great railroads of America
have evolved together. No one of
them has an appliance or a method
that is much beyond the rest. If it
were not for this interchange of men
and ideas some railroads would still
be using the link and pin. and snake
heads would be as common as in the

The railroad manager who knows
his business is ever on the lookout for
excellence among his men. and he pro

a strong man occasionally from the

The- Origin of lYoirs Ijeg.
fa la C. Eamb.)
Years ago there lived in Greece an
old philosopher named Aristonhides.
He had two bad habits, one was his
abnormal affection for that odorifer
ous concoction known in the present
age as "stew." He simply loved
"stew," and his wife was the best
stewardess" in Greece. Of course
sh could stew in butter, but she was
better in Greece.
His other had habit was that he
was a musician. You have all heard
of "The Croaking Chorus." from the
"Frogs of Aristophhb-s."
Well, he

were family pets, and he
frogs in the parlor and
Greczy too." He loved
nearly as well as he did stew.
One day Mrs. A. was mixing a
bunch ol stew, and the frogs started
a little innocent game of leap-frog in
the kitchen on the stone Mrs. A. was
using for a table. Now she was a bit
peeved that day because Mr. Aristo
phides wouldn't come across with
enough of the necessary for her to
purchase a now Spring Fig Leaf
gown. So she didn't enjoy ih? game
of leap-frog much. In fact she be
came so angry that she grabbed a
couple cf little frogs and cut their
legs off. Tho amputation too" place
directly over the "stew" kettle and the
legs fell into the stewy grave. She
didn't notice this and served the stew
to Mr. A.
Ho at. Ho ate More. He ate it
ALL. Then he found that he had
been eating his frogs legs. Being a
philosopher, he immediately sacrificed
the rest of his frogs and told all of
his friends of his discovery. Thus
were frogs legs discovered.

a fine crop of scrubs, and th? result
is the same in business ventures, one
of America's largest concerns failed
for a tidy sum of five millions or so
a few years ago just through a dog
ged policy, that extended over a pe
riod of 50 year of promoting cousins,
uncles and aunts, whose only claim of
efficiency was that they had been on
the pension redl for a long time. This
way lies dry rot.

As for civil service rules rules are

privilege of everybody to do a reason

the person has been a long time with
one concern and has received many
benefits.
But if at the last worst comes to
worst, do not forget that you yourself
are at tho head of the concern. If it
fails you get the blame. And should
the anvil chorus become so persistent
that there is danger of discord taking
the place of harmony, stand by your

To End Catarrhal
Deafness and
Head Koises
Persons suffering from catarrhal
deafness and head noises will be lad
to know that thia distressing ailliction
can usually be successfully treated at
home by an Internal medicine that in
many instances has affected complete
relief after other treatments have
failed. Sufferers who could svareely
hear a watch tick tell ho'.v they have
had their hearing restored to such an
extent that the tick of a wj.teh was
plainly audible seven or eiuht inches
away from the ear.
Therefore. If you know of someone
who is troubled with head noises or
catarrhal deafness, cut out -.his for
mula and hand it to them and you will
have boon the means of saving some
poor sufferer perhaps from total deaf
ness. T)c prescription can bo pre
pared at home and Is made as follows:
.Secure from your druggist 1 oz. Par
