American Radicals Lose. j\ ROPHECIES of a "social rcvolu J tion" in this country do not find much support in recent elections. The radicals had a good chance to show their strength in Chicago and Milwaukee recently, and failed dismally in both cases. I In Milwaukee (ho Socialists had made a show of strength last fall, when they , , - , T . , „ . , . elected \ ictor Berger to congress. But ml this local election they were beaten two to one by the conservative vote, losing both their judicial ticket and school ticket. In Chicago the test was still more con-1 elusive. Chicago has always had a large j "radical" element. In this last election! there were, in addition to the Republican I and Democratic candidates for mayor, three radical candidates, Labor, Socialist and Socialist Labor. The Labor party wasj considered to have an especially strong candidate in John Fitzpatrick, president of the Chicago Federation of Labor. The Republican and Democratic candidates' were not in any way remarkable. Polit , -, .... j xcal and economic conditions were sup posed to be fostering a spirit of discontent. Now, if any time, it was supposed, radical ism would assert itself. Yet the three radical candidates to- ; gether did not poll more than 11 per cent' of the votes cast, and the strongest of them did not get more than 7 per cent of the! total. The Republican Candidate, Who WaS elected by a very small piuralit 3 r , beat both I ,, . .. . Til, ,, . : the bocialist candidates together by more i than 10 to 1. | In both cases the thoughtful observer may see, instead of the Bolshevist wave ! that so many Americans have feared, a ! protest against the attempted Bolshevis ing of the American radical movement. The American Socialist party, unfortu nately for itself, lias fallen largely into the hands of men who profess admiration j j for the Bolshevist program. Instead of ! gaining a large following, thev find that . . i they have driven from their party the more level-headed Socialists, and alienated thej 1 ____ 01 ,___• et- -, ,, , ! lar^e foil Wing ol Americans who, though never professing Socialism, have had a leaninir toward it „,„,„1 ____ 47 , r. • v • , J. I member that Socialism is not dispensed | Socialism and the Farmer. T WILL be the part of wisdom to re in broken doses. However much its ex ponents may camouflage their purposes, their program contemplates all utilities known to the American industrial field and should the propaganda now being con ducted so covertly ever gain any headway the advocacy of government ownership of farm lands would be as strongly pushed as is that of the more common utilities. A careful study of past platforms of the Bo cailistic party should he worth while in view of the fact that Socialism in disguised forms is endeavoring to accomplish sec retly what it has been unable to accom plish openly. The Turn-Around Fund. O family scheme is complete without its "turn-around" fund. That is a fund of money or good sound stock which is set aside to provide capital with which to make some change in the estab lished order of domestic or business life, such as purchasing property, taking advan tage of a promising business opening, or the establishment of the individual in a business of his own. The amount set aside cannot, always be large. It may have the most modest be ginning. But it Should be faithfully pre served for its especial purpose, and increas ed regularly until used, when a new fund should be started. There is no use waiting to start until things get easier or better. That time never comes to those who wait for it. The thing to do is to begin just when it seems utterly impossible, to consider payment to the fund as something owing to one's self and to be met like any other obligation. It is amazing how things will fall in line when once the start is made. At least one golden opportunity comes to almost everybody. The family which has its bit of capital can seize the chance and go on to that prosperity which is the I dream of humanity.

I look abroad, across the sea, and what I there be hold, puts gooseflesh on my marble brow, and makes my feet grow cold. The blooming nations over there don't seem to care for peace; they haven't had enough of war—they hate to have it cease. With chips upon their shoulderblades they paw around and cuss, and seem to hope some locoed gent will start another fuss. I wouldn't care a tinker's hoot how much those nations fought, If they'd confine their scrapping to their own ten-acre lot, and not expect the outside world to drop its useful tools, and take up swords and guns again, to curb a bunch of fools. Alas, I fear that Uncle Sum will be. In future years, kept busy doing peeler's work in both the hemispheres; when not suppressing Red at home, who would overthrow the law, he'll have to chase some Red abroad, and soak him in the Jaw; he'll have to help out ten cent kings and Jack up sagg ing thrones, and every 15 minutes he must blow a billion bones. The nations all have come to look on Uncle Sam as one who works the scales of Justice and looks on the Job as fun. I should be proud of this, no doubt, but I'm a mossback Jay, and I regret the bygone times, the old contented way. when Uncle Sam was satisfied to run our native land, and warble "Hail Columbia," an eagle In each hand. They were both beautiful actressee, but the leading one was exceedingly thin. Of course they quarreled, and one day at rehearsal the leading lady ended a Passage-at-arms with the haughty remark; "Please remember that I am the star." "Yes, dear," replied the other, eyeing her companion's slender figure, "I know you are the star, but you'd look better If you were a little meteor."

A WEAKER woman would have chanted color at the physician's natural mistake, but Lillian mot hfa Inquiring täte with no sign of em barrassment whatever. "Mr. Savarin Is not my husband.'' she ■aid quietly. "Oh, I beg: pardon," the physician In terposed hurriedly, while I silently thanked my stars that Betty was safely below stairs. "There Is no need for apology," Lil lian returned Imperturbably. "As to the mental shock, I cannot answer positive ly. Mr. Savarin has hut Just now re turned from France; indeed, I had no idea that he was In this country until he appeared at the door Juat before we called you. I am hls nearest friend in the city—hls people live upstate, and ho had spoken less than a dozen words when he fell unconscious." ''Ah!" The physician drew a sibilant breath. "And—I would not ask this if it were got necessary for me to under stand something of the circumstances surrounding the case—would you object to repeating those words if you remem ber them?" "Hie Words May——** If she remembered them! I knew that while life and memory remained to Lil lian she would nevor forget those few halting, seemingly meaningless words. "I don't object in the least," eho an swered proudly. He simply said. *1 only camo to tell you that I have—' then he fainted." "Have you any Idea what he meant?" the physician persisted, while I silently admired the manner In which Lillian had truthfully answered his question while stripping her reply of the colorful meaning with which Robert Savarln's manner had invested It. "X know that Mr. .Savarin has been much concerned for a long time over a— he was making for a man— Whom he had known, a man between u?? an< * himself thero lay a matter which I would have to have hls own permission to disclose." she said. "Hls words may have meant that he had found him." The white, tense, little lines around j her mouth, which I knew denoted great mental strain, were much in evidence | now. Did the physician see them?
