Rockefeller, goes to a circus. He laughs at the clowns, feeds pea nuts to the elephants, applauds the hair-raising acrobatic acts, and buys pink lemonade and “hot dogs.” All around, it is a complete circus day, even to his daughter-in-law hav ing her tintype on the midway. “It brought back memories of boy hood days,” said John D. And it probably is a safe bet that he had the best time on circus day that he had had in a year, though the diversion was of the inexpensive sort within the means of the man who can count the dollars of his weekly pay envelope on his fingers. The greatest joys of life, for rich or poor, involve simple things. And our greatest pleasures are inexpensive. Money is desirable, but it is not every thing. This may be platitudinous.' Most platitudes, however, are true and philosophical. The mob that followed Jqhn D. Rockefeller about the circus was most interested in the dimes he gave to 200 of the fun producers. Observe his system —only one dime to each person, and always a bright, spanking-new dime, fresh from the mint. John D. always carries a pocket ful of dimes —and never appears in public without distributing some of them. He is rich enough to distribute $5 gold pieces. They, however, would be quickly spent. He is shrewd enough to know that nearly every one wouid save a dime from the world’s richest man, as a “lucky piece.” In his unique psychological way. Rockefeller is trying to impress the public with the value of the hum ble dime. Pennies might be hurled back at him in derision. But none except drunken men ever threw away a dime. Probably John D. is like the rest of us, and would spend dollars of time trying to recover a dime* lost through a sidewalk grating. You see Rockefeller, with his dimes, spreading the wisdom of thrift with all the cunning theatrical instinct of Phineas T. Barnum. After all, it was thrift that gave him his start, back in the days when he was a bookkeeper toiling for $35 a month. He learned to handle dimes be fore he was able to handle dollars. So did Henry Ford, when he was a machinest. So did Schwab, whne he was a day-worker in the steel mills. MRS. OLESEN, SENATOR Mrs. Peter Olesen, or Mrs. Anna Dickie Olesen, as the law requires it to be written on the ballot, has re-' ceived the Democratic nomination for senator in the State of Minnesota. She was recommended* by the state con vention and her selection is the more complimentary because she had as an opponent Hon. Thos. J. Meighen. one of the most popular Democrats of the state—pioneer progressive. Mrs. Oleson is a woman of rare oratorical ability and is as sound in her politi cal principles as she is persuasive in presenting them. The statement which she issued is characteristic of her. She modestly denies that her success is a personal tribute; she gives the credit to the platform of the party. She says she simply brought the platform to the at tention of the members of the party, and regards her nomination as an ac ceptance of the platform.. She is go ing to make a thorough campaign of the state. She is a friend of the com mon people and one of the most sin cere champions the people have had in recent years. It would not take the Democracy long to win the nation if all the Democrats followed her motto: “Let us raise a standard to which the wise and honest can rally—the event is in the hands of God.” Every Democrat in Minnesota should rally to her support. Every progres sive Republican should give her a vote; every woman in Minnesota should feel a pride in sending to the nation's capital such a splendid type of the womanly woman—wife, mother, ctizen. The Commoner expresses the hope iiiat, when the votes are counted, it may be able to send its hearty con gratulations to Mrs. Olesen. Senator. W. J. BRYAN. THIS DID NOT HAPPEN AT WIN TER PARK A special from Kingsville, Ont., says: “Eddie Sanderson of Bellingham, Wash., came here visiting, and pfompt ly became popular with a little Kings ville girl. They went walking togeth er; they bought ice cream together— and the girl, pretty generally showed the home town boys that the visitor from America was her idol. But three boys, all between 10 and 12, liked the little girl and they didn’t like Eddy’s popularity. They became frankly jealous. So they got together and planned to end Eddie’s visit and his popularity at one stroke. “Men passing a small wood near the town yesterday heard a boy’s cries. They smelled smoke and rushed into the woods. Tied to a stake with fire eating its way up his legs was Eddie Sanderson. They cut the ropes and freed him. They threw water on his feet and rushed him into town. There Eddie at first refused to tell what had happened. Finally he told the story of his popularity and the envy it had created. MONDELL’S CLAIM OF SAVINGS EXPOSED AND REFUTED Just prior to the summer recess of the House for six weeks Republican Leader Frank W. Mondell pronounced a eulogy upon what he called the achievements of the Congress so far, When analyzed with reference to their importance tflese achievements con sist of the passage of a tax revision bill which satisfied no one and the pas sage of a tariff bill to which the Sen ate made 2,057 amendments and which will give even less satisfaction than the tax revision bill. Judged as a whole Leader Mondell’s eulogy turn ed out to he an elegy. There are misleading statements in his speech however, which should be explained and made clear. He tells of a reduction cf $940,000,000 from Demo cratic estimates made in 1921 bv’ a Re publican congress, hut he does nqt tell of deficiency hills’passed for that year for $482,000,000, nor does he tell, as Representative Byrns (Dem.) of/Ten nessee pointed out, that the reduction from the other estimates was made possible by heavy reduction of the army and navy after the estimates were submitted by the Democratic administration and not through the ef forts of the Republican congress. Mr. Mondell was equally unfair in his reference to the surplus at the close of the fiscal year, June 30 last. He did not explain that this surplus was made possible by Secretary Mel lon transferring $200,000,000 of obliga tions to the year 1923. Nor did Leader Mondell tel! that the estimated deficiencies for 1923 were $500,000,000 and that this Congress has already appropriated for 1923 over $74,000,000 more than w-as appropriat ed in the regular supply bill for 1922. As Representative Byrns truly says, “there has been the greatest hypocrisy and deception during the administra te as to alleged savings and reduc tions of expenditures.” Republican leaders seem to go upon the theory that misrepresentation is as good as the truth and that the people are too ignorant to know or to learn the difference. In all of our history no other congress or national admin istration has so deliberately set out to hoodwink and to fool the people as the present L>o-Nothing congress and the present, incompetent national ad ministration. THE CAREFUL CROSSING CAM PAIGN Despite the wide publicity that has already been given the subject of grade crossing accidents since June Ist, the date on which this campaign was inaugurated, quite a number of fatalities have occurred. In one case alone six human lives were snuffed out, simply because the driver failed to stop, look and listen before attempt ing to cross the tracks. A motor vehicle in the hands of a careful driver is an agency for safety. It can be driven up close to the rail way trac.k and stopped in perfect safety differing from horse-drawn vehicles in this respect. But if an improper person is at the wheel, driv ing a car is more dangerous than making dynamite. Recently an automobile driver tried to beat a railroad train to a crossing. The result was a wrecked train, a smashed up automobile and a number of people killed. And until safety becomes the uppermost thought in the minds of persons driving cars, no improvement in the situation can be expected. r Nobody can read the daily accounts of fatal accidents at crossings, with out being impressed with the fact that in a very large majority of cases, the means of prevention lies in reach of the person at the steering wheel. THE “BROTHERHOOD OF MAN!” In his retirement from the editorial chair of the Missionary Voice publish ed at Nashville, Tenn., Mr. Robt. B. Eleazer, has the following to say about the “brotherhood of man!” “We have insisted that the ideal of brotherhood which Jesus so clearly enunciated was meant to be taken seri ously. We have held that it applied not only to the yellow men and the black beyond the seas, but equally to tae Oriential in California and the Negro in the South— that each is en titled to be counted a man and a child of God, respected as an immortal soul, and given a fair chance. Let us not deceive ourselves. Nothing short of that can call itself Christian, whatever our prejudices and .traditional views. “But this interpretation by no means exhausts the implications of brother hood. It applies also throughout the whole realm of social relations. It forbids utterly the class distinctions Florida Auto l Supply Cos.
