Uncle Joe Cinnon may be' ý0, but cer tainly talks like sixty. This is along with other things the weddingest administration. President Wilson continues to ute a superior quality of English and much horse sense in his messages. A Chicago man got ten years for ab ducting a girl, which as far as we know is the maximum penalty ever inflicted fur stealing a chicken. Another pathetic incident of every day life, is the way the London editors discover every monioth that Germany has reached her high water mark. 'German- Ame-icans to press fight on Wilson," says a headline. Go right ahead, Herren! Some 14,000,000 Ameri can- Americans will have something to say at the polls thlimselves, as well as 3,000,000 hyphenate.l, If Villa has really lost his mind, we hope nobody will ever find it. The "hyphen" ap!pear to be trying to make the shilp of s'ate into a schoont el'. Europe isn't so interested in "how long" Ford spent there, as 'how much.' What is one man's Chlris~mah is an other man's bankruptoy. Hon. Mikado apparently forgets that China is to be handled with care, At any rate whatever China decides to do or he, it is evident that Yuan Shih. ha, s going to have a good job.

But the hyphen T.'.'. di:.,ikes most of ,ill is in ex-president. "Success has turned many a man's head" observes the Boston Transcript. True enough. But it hasn't anything on the short skirt in that respect. RESOLUTIONS.
