Louisiana Senators and the Tariff. As a newspaper which for the past thirty years has somewhat strenuously advocated the Demo cratic policy of a tariff for revenue only, we venture to suggest. to our friends in North Louisiana that, while they have a perfect right and are right to insist that our repre sentatives at Washington shall sub mit to the party discipline and not join with Republicans against the party leadership and the party in terest, nothing the Louisiana sen ators have, thus far done impugns their Democracy or justly entitles them to criticism. They have vio lated no rule of the party, and they are as truly Democrats as any of those who make up the majority in the Senate. The evidence of this is to be found in the fact that within the past few days each has been called to preside over the Demo cratic caucus and each was ap plauded when he took the gavel in hand.-New Orleans States -July 1. All that which the States has said of the Louisiana senators is con ceded, but it is surmised that the honor conferred on Senators Rans dell and Thornton was suggested :not only as a compliment to them, each in his individuality, but, as a ,policy dictated by good politics. 1iow could these Louisiana senators -. consistently ignore their colleagues, ' the final test, after having been recognized, invited and honored to preside at:the senatorial Democratic caucus. t Is:..- t this acceptance of this honor, an act which would bind them to the 'action of the majority dt li caucus.

Next to the tariff bill, the most im portant measure to be considered by congress is currency revision. Con gressman Carter Glass of Virginia. chairman of the house committee on banking andl currency; Senator R. L. Owen of Oklahoma. chairman of the senate banking committee, and Secre tary of the Treasury William G. Mc Adoo are the joint authors of this bill. with which congress will wrestle dur ing the heated term. Before the meas are comes up in the house for discus sion it is possible that long continued public hearings will be held by the committee on banking and currency. Carter Glass comes of a newspaper family and is a native of Lynchburg. Va. He was educated in the public schools of Lyichburg and at the age of fourteen entered a newspaper office as an apprentice, serving successively as printer, reporter, editor and publish er. He owns the Daily News, a morn ing paper,, and the Advance, an after noon publication. From 1899 to 1903 he was a member of the Virginia sen ate. resigning that office to enter the Fifty-seventh congress. ' Since then he has been regularly returned to repre sent- the Sixth Virginia district at Washington. Mr. Glass is fifty-five years old. Canal Zone Governor. Much interest was aroused in Wash ington by the announcement that Rich atrd 'L; Metcalfe was to be appointed governor of the. Panama canal zone. Mr. Metcalfe will succeed Maurice H. Thatcher of Kentucky as the sole civil lan member of the canal commission, twho by:virtue of his duties as civil administratonr of the zone receives the complimentary title of governor. The selection of IMr. Metcalfe, it Is asserted, indicates that President Wilson has determined not to take ad vantage of the law authorizing him to reorganize the canal zone administra tion until after the c:rnal has. been completed, so that the engineer offi cers of th peseij t :cai~i I commission shail h." ave OipdrtUnity- to eijoy the fruitiot of their service.

This foolish game has for its object to keep a "straight face" when every effort is made to produce laughter. Any number of persons may play, sit ting in a row with the leader at one end. He begins by saying to his next neighbor. "I have a hen," and each in turn must repeat the words to his next neighbor. When this has reached the end of the line the player at that end asks of the one next him, "Has she feathers?" and when this question has traveled back to the leader he returns the answer, "She has feathers." Then follow in the same manner these ques tions and answers: "Can she walk?" "She can walk." "How does she walk ?" "Wiggledy-woggledy, wiggle dy-woggledy." (As each player says this he imitates the walk of a chicken with his hands.) "Can she crow?" "She can crow." "How does she crow?" (Each then imitates the crow ing of a rooster.) Any one who laughs or makes a mis take in repeating the questions and an swers must pay a forfeit, to be re deemed after the game is over. This play is popular with German children and is called "entchen ver kaufen" (duckling buying). About Poplar Trees. Poplar trees are, like willows, fond of either dry or wet ground, and the two trees often grow together. Also. like the willows, their flowers appear early, growing in long, drooping cat kins. and a brisk spring wind will blow these to pieces, scattering the seeds, with their long white, silky hairs, in every direction. Poplars are also called aspens. You' cannot help noticing how their leaves quiver with the least breath of air. This is because of the long slender leaf stems which are slightly pressed side ways and so cannot hold the leaves quiet We have in North America the quak ing aspen, large toothed aspen; the bal sam or balm of Gilead, said to be the '"largest tree of northwestern Amer Ica;" two cottonwoods, one of which is also called the "necklace poplar'' and the white and the Lombardy pop lar, which holds up its branches stIlT and straight Hidden Flower.

All who take part in the game sit around a table, and each person puts his two forefingers on the table a fe*-. inches from the edge. The leader says "Robins fly!" and lifts his tflnars trots the table in imitation of flytig. - All the other players must do the '.aam and must also lift their flngers very time the leader calls out some ereatude which really files, but- must be caret.l not to lift them when he names some thing which does not fly. His object Is to entrap some "f the others atn lifting their fingers at the wrong .time so he lifts his flginirs every time he calls out. For example, be cries rap idly: *Robins fly! Pigeons fl4y!
