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

Carter Glass, Head of House
Banking Committee.
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

FOR THE CHILDREN
A Laughing Game.
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

Robins Ply.
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! Spa
rows fly! Houses flyl'" In the later
eat of the game some are sure to lift
their hands' at the, wroig time and
must pay a forfeit.
