HARMON AND MOB LAW (National Monthly) Thnt mob represented an Issue In .politics, at least In Newark. They stood for a total disregard for lnw. Up to that time they have been able to defeat candidates for public office In Newark, and public officers were somewhnt fearful of opposing them, Governor Hnrmop might hnve evnd od nny part In that dispute. He could have allowed the local officers to solve the situation, and, hud he assumed the usual rolo of the conciliating politi cian, might have remained up In the Michigan woods away from the scene. Instead be cut his vacation when not ified of the outrage. He hurried to ills home and thence to Newark, where lio conducted a personal Investigation. He suspended tho mayor and directed tbo dismissal of tho high police author Hies. Charges were preferred against tho Bherlff, and that official resigned. They'ro going to have law and order In Nownrk now. The stand taken by Governor Harmon has biought color to tho cheek of every lluckeyo with red blood in bis veins. His manly, Ilrm, immedlnto grasp of the situation has taken tho country by storm. And yot ho simply did his duty. Every where people nre applauding tho splen did work of that great big Doniocrntle Governor of Ohio and they tiro call ing as ho hns called for tho punish ment of those who committed and thoso who permitted the cruel death of Ethcrlngton. The recompense of tbo deplorablo affair Is that tho young Kcntucklau did not die In vain. Law nnd order gained tremendously in the sacrifice he made. A SENATOR The nowspapers some mouths ago printed advertlsomentH which solicit ed tbo public to buy 40,000 Bhares of the stock of tho Arizona Metals com pany ut I2.G0 por flharo (par valuo $5.00). Tho advertisements sot forth hopes nnd prospects In the manner common to such solicitations, but tho larger typo was reserved for tbo legend: "Senator Charles Dick, President, Washington, I). C." There Is nothing uiicomnum in n senator's being an Investor In a min ing company witness the cases of Penrose and Guggenheim. But where Dick differs from the otliois Is In this: tlioro is no similar recent rec ord or a Bonator publicly lending Ills nnmo nnd olllco as a lure to small In vostora to buy stockn. Some of the others might do In secret things much more gravely improper, but thoy would baldly do what. Dick has -done In this case. Incidentally, a few weeks ago, the advertising ngont who put out theso announcements mied for tho amount of bis bill; as a part of tho suit,, tho furniture In tho compnny's oilice was attached, where upon it appeared that (he olllco furul tu lo didn't belong to tho company, but bnd been loaned to It, One cur Ions episode In this history was Semi tor Dick's violent protests In tbo Cleveland Plain Dealer. What wns tho reason? Was ho willing to ullow tho ubo of ills name outside of Ohio. 1mt not befoio tho eyes of his own constituents? Or did ho object to tho rovonuo going lo u newspaper which Is opposed to him politically? Either would be possible and charac teristic in tho cote of a piun of Semi tor Dicks' cnllbor. Somehow- I ho very Hinallnoss and cheapness of tho things that make this senator objec tionable seom the less compatible with n Htnte llko Ohio, Colllor's. Tbo bonnna appears to bo about the only borry within reach of tho averngo ultimate consumer. : RIGID No class of business requires nioro careful at tention, or insists upon more rigid rules than that of banking.

When the civil war came on two classes of men In the north went out to fight. Tlie one were actuated by patriotism, the other by what they ex pected to make out of tho matter. But the war, instead of lasting but n few months, ns many at first expected, fur nishing mllttnry titles and big pay for this Inst named class, proved a gigan tic, bloody- struggle, and with each fight tho nrmy was' In need of theso so called soldiers. Colonel Jim C. in 1S$G2 commanded tho brigade In which I served. Tho colonel had been a politician In a large city nnd wns one of the first to "offer himself a sncrlllco to tho Union," his Idea of that sacrifice being that he would start out with rank of colonel nnd return with that of general, pick ing up sundry "perquisites" by tho wny, then run for n fat office. He was a fine looking man and prided him self on being n lady killer. No sooner were the troops grouped Into brigades and divisions thou Colo nel Jim by virtue of tho dnto of his commission was placed in command of n brigade. As soon as this elevation took place lie looked nbout hi in for a staff. Being allowed two aids, bo choso Louts Richmond nnd me, both second lieutenants. Richmond told me thnt he didn't like the colonel nnd was Intending to ask to be returned to his regiment. Itut no sooner had be told me tills than on receipt of n letter from tho north ho said thnt'ho would rcmnhi on the staff. I nsked him why no nnd so suddenly ennnged Ins views, but lie shut up like nn oyster and re fused to litter n word In explanation. It wns not long nfter this that one morning at the breakfast table tbo colonel'ii brow wns very lowering. "Gentlemen," ho said, "there's a thief on my stnff. Last night whilo I wns nt Colonel R.'s headquarters" ho had been playing poker "my trunk wns rIOed of n package of papers." As be spoke bo looked nt all our faces to note the effect of his words. I noticed thnt Richmond wns theonly one of the stnff whose looks Indicated consciousness. "Might not tho thief bo ono of tbo headquarters gunrd or nn orderly?" suggested tho commissary. "No." replied tho colonel; "tho rob bery wns not committed for gain. There was money In tho trunk, and it was not tnken. Somo one on my stnff took tho papers for a purpose. If I can provo It on him I'll have lilni court mnrtlaled." The colonel's eyes were, fixed Intent ly on Richmond as ho spoke. Rut Rich moiid went on eating his breakfast with a fair amount of equanimity con sidering that ho wns virtually accused of being n thief. Nevertheless during tho day ho made application to Colonel Jim to bo returned to his regiment. Now, tho relations between a gen eral and bis personal staff nro of a peculiarly Intimate nnd confidential character. The general may nomlnnto bis own stnlf, and tbo nomination Is considered an lienor. Rut lie Is not .likely to retain an olllcer who prefers not to hold the position given him. What was our surprise to learn from Louis Richmond that the colonel de clined to Issue tho order returning him to his regiment. Evidently tho com mander believed that his aid had stolen his papers nnd proposed to foreo him to stay where ho was until 'ho could recover thorn. Slnco Richmond mndo no denial of being guilty of tbo colonel's charge wo treated him with coolness and Dually refused to speak to him except offi cially. Though the young man winced under this, ho scorned lo be sustained by n consciousness of Innocence. .Meanwhile mere were conditions be tween him and the colonel that wo could not understand. Neither took any dellnlte stand. The colonel did not prefer charges, nnd Richmond made no move to force tho colonel to permit him to Join his regiment, which seemed to be the only wny to get rid of u very unpleasant situation. I no ticed that Colonel ,11m mndo no men tion of the character of the purloined papers, and his aid made no effurt to free himself from the obloquy that rested upon blm. Such were tho conditions when wo entered our tlrst fight. The colonel did not show up nt the head of his brigade, and Richmond, who appeared to be best fitted to take his place. Issued or ders In his aend. When tho tight was over the colonel appeared, explaining his nbsenco on the ground thnt ho had got separated from bis command when the fight opened nnd could not nfter- wind Ilnd It. Rut the division commander did not nccept this excuse nnd called for Colonel Jim's resignation. It wns handed In, and the political general disappeared from tho service. Colonel Jim's relegation to ward pol itics rclcgntcd Richmond nnd myself to our respective regiments. Soon after the fight bo asked me to come to his quarters. Thcro ho made nn explana tion of the conditions existing between him nnd his commander. A lady had written him that tho colonel bad a number of letters from her which she wns desirous should bo returned. The colonel bnd declined to give thorn up. She nsked Richmond to get them for her by hook or by crook. Ho bad booked thorn. Of course Richmond received bis re word. It wns tho Indy herself. TUNIC GOWNS TO GO.

Tunic gowns are not becoming to tho average woman, so it will not lie over whelming uows to state that Dame Fashion hns decreed thnt In tho fnll these models will not-be worn. Thcro is one exception in tunic ef fects that should be ulloweti to remain tho frock of silk or somo sheer ma terial veiled wltli tunic draperies of chiffon or material of a diaphanous texture. Tho costume illustrated Is one of tho best types of tho ttmlc gown which is popular this summer. Thi Odd Jobs Woman. If you havo no particular bent, but mnny outlets, do not feel you must train yourself Into a specialty for which you have no particular tltness, which, being moro plainly translated, means thcro Is room In tho world for the odd Jobs women. Don't you bellovo it? Hear how ono girl who was sudden ly thrown upon her own resources mndo for herself a comfortable living. When forced to take uccouut of stock sho found she had no particular talent, but miiuy knacks. She could not write btorlcs, bo a concert singer or pluyer, paint miniatures or teach kindergar ten, but she could write a clever note, bake delicious cake, pack n trunk, that was a joy to behold when opened at a Journey's end, play Inspiring danco music, slug ballads blcsslugly nnd read nloud delightfully. In addition sho could do line mending, clean gloves and laces and bad an nrtlstlc knack of setting a table or decorating n room. It would tako years to specialize on any of tho branches, with no certainty of dual success. While debating the girl beard a business friend lumknt that there Wns no one to help her out on the numer6us odd Jobs Unit over filled tho busy worker's scant time. "I'll be an odd Jobs woman," said the girl. Sho would go Into a woman's kitchen and bake a cake, would set her table and decorate her drawing room for company, would stny In the pantry and attend to careful service nud would Inter go Into tho drawing room to play for dancing or sing n few songs. ' Tho friend who bated lo pack a trunk know whi'ie she could ilnd a good packer in an emergency. The packer would also coino early and get clothes In good condition, run ribbons, mend, darn or clean gloves nnd luces. The society woman who could not ntToid n secretary nud was swamped' by her correspondence could have clov er, woll written notes sent out from mere Jottings of Information, Sho could itlsi) trust-her for calling lists to be carefully revised and Invitations written, directed nnd sent. Where eyes wore bad or ono was convalescing from u long illness thcro would go the girl with clever litera ture adapted to the taste of tho hear er. Rotter yet, theso stories were read In u pleasing voice, with perfect enun ciation, Summer Reading. Summer gives moro tlmo for rending, even to the busy woman, than does any other season. This may bo be cause It Is too wnrm for social duties nnd exercise, but 'tbo pleasant fact re Mialns to the book lover. Systematic reading is always of more advantage than desultory, tuercforo for part of tho timo you allow yourself each day to rend nlong glveu lines. If you expect to tnko your vacation later get all tbe books bearing on tho history, flora nnd fiction of that part of the country. There nro comparative ly few parts even of unhlstorlc Amer len that have not been written up, wldle for a trip abroad tho difficulty is to choose. A summer reading club for workers is delightful. RT POSTAL ANI Eaofi State Is to Oo Given One Institution. HITCHCOCK CHANGES PUNS, Instead of Experimenting With NeW bystem In Offices of the First Class, Tryout Will Be Made In Sec ond and Third Class Offices Hope For Largor Appropriation at Next Cession of Congress Many Appli cations Now On File. Washington, July 28. Announce ment Is made that tho postofflce de partment will establish postal sav ings banks at several cities Oct. 1. In dications are that the system will be tried out in the beginning at post- olllcos of tho second and third classes rather than in those of the first class, as originally planned. It Is probable that a postal savings bank will bo established In each of tho 47 states at tho outset. When the board of trustees met soon after congress adjourned It was announced that the new banking plan would not bo Installod until somo time in the now year. It was also tentatively agreed at the tlmo not more than a dozen banks should bo put into com mission at tho beginning, nnd that offices of tbo first class should be tried for experimental purrosos. The committee having tho details In hand has come to the conclusion that, owing to tho small appropriation available, It would be better If banks were introduced Into the smaller of fices first. The belief Is entertained that In the larger cities deposits would pile up more rapidly, thus In creasing tho cost of administration. There Is a lively Interest on the part ot the postmasters In tho postal savings bank law. Moro than 300 of them hnve asked that their offices bo designated to nccept rostal sav ings. Nearly 614 national banks havo requested that they be designated as depositories of postal funds. It Is the expectation o"f tho postal officials that at the next session of congress adequate appropriation will bo mado thnt will insure the establishment of the banks wherever there may be a demand for them.

COUNTY OPTION,THE ISSUE Minneapolis, Minn., July 28 John Llnd for governor on a county -option platform is the program ot tho -dead-ers in tho Democratic state conven tion which was called to order here today for the nomination of a state ticket to be voted for at the November election. Tbo principal fight in the convention promises to be over the question of tht ndoptlon of a county option resolution. It is plaifncd to havo tho resolution fight como first, as that will decide the status of John Llnd In the convention, It is well known that Mr. LInd could not bo per suaded to accept tho nomination ex ception on a county option platform. Congressman W. S. Hammond, who, next to former Governor Llnd, has been most prominently mentioned for the head of tho ticket, has, given the delegates to understand that he does not caro for tbo nomination. In the event of the defeat of the Llnd forces, therefore, tho convention will probably nnme Judgo C. W. Stanton of Bemldji, John Jenswold of Duluth or some oth er equally prominent Democrat as the standard bearer in tho coming cam paign. TABLOID FICTION (Chlcngo Intgr Ocean.) This is tho nervous ago. Wo live 10 times ns fast, wo understand 10 times ns rapidly, ns did our ancestors and wo havo read nnd heard n hundred times ns much as they could read and hear. So It is only natural and logical that wo should balk nt epics, in tho lino of verse, nnd nt thousand-pago novels, just ns wo ennnot nfford to sit nt dinner six or eight good hours; for lack of tlmo nnd constitution. Thnt Is why, especially during the last two decades, tho short story something to bo takon In, enjoyed, Immediately digested has becomo our literary fa vorite, and that Is also why our au thors havo learned to servo It up to us in vory spicy, nppetlaing shape. Despito tho prophets ot "tho sini plo life," it does look as if tho tempo ot tho match, to whoso beats humanity Is double-timing, will be reduced ap precaably In tho futuro. It ruthor looks as If humanity could not go at a slower gait becauso it has acquired so much momentum on Its way. On this account, may wo apprehend that the now generation which shall follow ours, having no longer term of years than wo to live nnd having a far great er lot ot things to think and feel and know, will bo still fonder of tabloid pleasuro, and will call for fiction con centrated so that their popular novels will In sizo bo little moro than fiction al epigrams?
