Conquering Alaska By Motor T MOTOR TRUCK blazing a trail through Alaska to within two degrees of the arctic circle, fording glacial streams, skimming quicksands, finding a way through canyons and crevasses with walls of ice 1000 feet high, crossing icy mountains by steep trails and passes never used before, blasting a road through boulders and forests makes a story that Kipling ought to tell to get the vivid faets into the human mind. The facts are so new and powerful an5 vivid they make a story that takes the breath away, just to enumerate -them. The only difficulty the, engineers missed was that their engines did net heat up. An ordinary army motor truck driven by a group of American engineers made the trip partly to demonstrate', the possibility of using motor trucks in Alaska, partly to find a shorter route to reach the large interior towns, and partly to show the Alaska board of road commissioners what could be done in making a traiL Transportation has always been one of the greatest problems of the Yukon country. With short seasons, glacial washouts, slides'- of ice on cliffs, high mountains, swollen roaring rivers, deep snows, long, heavy rains, and quicksands, Alaska has road problems as vast as her treasures of gold. The motor went with only ordinary equipment, except that it carried road tools and more fuel than usual, and also mail sacks; it brought letters to some places where none had gone for more than a year. Altogether the adventure was a brilliant success and very hopeful for Alaska that the worst of her winter's imprisonment with snow and ice and cold can com paratively easily be eased up. o The worst of the Thaw business is that it interests so many people in every town and all because a. degenerate has enough money to hire a multitude of lawyers to dispute the law for an indefinite time. If it keeps on the rest of the young man's life, this hiring lawyers to fight every moment for his release, inas much as lawyers are most brilliant and always turning over a new side to affairs, the mud is not likely to settle for a generation. Studying the CHICAGO purposes to make a census to find all worthy unfortunates, to count and sort out all of its beggars, to get a new hold on the charities problems, and to see what can be done about it. The United Charities of the city re ported that one person out of every seven in the city had been helped in the last year an enormous percentage, and highly expensive for it follows to reason that the other six are supporting the one. All of the big cities have special trouble with professional beggars, cripples on the street who whine for pennies to be dropped in their tin cups, but who have bank accounts and automobiles on the other side of town. El Paso, thanks largely to the Woman's Charity and also to the cooperation of all the other civic bodies, churches, lodges, and private citizens, has very little trouble with the professional beggars, but the charity problems are as big as tha city. An enumeration of those who in any one week or month receive aid, and a complete classification, might indicate the surest was to give relief, and suggest ways to prevent in some degree, the troubles, or at least to reduce them. Of the great causes of poverty and distress in our town, tuberculosis, which is so vastly ameliorated by scientific care and which so needs to be safeguarded to keep it from killing all about it, is perhaps the most common. Then the fact that many babies in the city have only half a chance to live; the difficulty of get ting a proper spirit and place for delinquent girls; the fact that hosts of Mex icans young and qld have splendid workvmaterial in them, splendid skill of eye and finger, but no training all these are factors in the problem. f A western bank advertised, "We make the interest of our depositors, our interest.'' T&at is a new way of compounding. China and the Vampires- THE UNCHANGING desire on the part of European powers to partition off China, to the ultimate commercial and political suppression of the yellow empire, has always been met by a contrary effort on the part of the United States to maintain the integrity of China partly out of world conscience, and partly because the partition of China into the proposed five spheres of in fluence with the revenues controled by five great foreign powers would practically exclude our country from participation in the Chinese markets. The Boxers rose in fury and killed all foreigners to keep China for the Chinese, but the plans in the chancellories of Europe went right on for the division of China as Africa has been divided. The powers were in nowise disturbed by the anger of the Chinese peasants. John Hay stood for "China for the Chinese" but John Hay is dead and no secretary since has kept so complete an acquaintance with Europe's desires or so firm a hold on a place as a sixth member of the world's congress of powers. Five powers hold the Chinese loan and control Chinese finances and revenue, and when they divide China into five spheres of influence, the iope'of the old empire to hold its own and be itself and have a government of the Chinese for the Chinese, must grow dim. The. Philadelphia Public Ledger calculates that a girl costs 14.3 cents in New York because when the Triangle Waist company there burned out with its safety doors all locked right, 140 girls were killed and a member of the firm was fined $20. Do People Really CLEMENT SHORTER writing in the 'London Sphere asks the question which many are asking, "Whether there is the same love of literature now as when I was young." Why do folks never discuss Browning or Tennyson or Shakspere or Balzac or Swinburne? he inquired. Have the magazines a monopoly on our reading time these days, or is life too hurried for deeper thou0ht than one popular novel every three months, or are we so greedy to make and spend money we have no leisure? What is the matter that enough people do not read gooiJ books to make ordinary talk at dinner tables interesting? Do young men never know poetry to iell the young women, and do young women never flush and love and hate with the romances, as of yore? Where are the books, the much usel books, that used to be considered only a decent showing in any family of means or standing? Mr. Shorter is short of information on these points, and asks to know. 14 Years Ago Today Prom The Herald This Sate 1S99. H. R- Wood has gone to New York on business. J. A.

Will-Not Cut Living Cost Maurice Schwarx Says Manufactur ers Will Add Tariff Reductions to Usual Price Little Interviews. ft OSCA lav of SCAR UNDERWOOD'S tariff law will not .reduce the cost high living, or the high cost of living." Maurice Schwartz, of cost of Jiving." Maurice Schwartz, of schedule provides for a lower tariff on these articles, but the manufacturers will simply add tne difference to the price of their goods and the ultimate consumer will nav the freigftt. This Is what has been donje in the past and Is what will happen when these sched ules are" understood. But there is one good thing that will develop out of the tariff reduction. By adding the amount of the tariff reduction to the cost of tho goods, the manufacturers will be ablo to produce a better Quality of croods for the mbney than they have In the past. When thev add the amount of the tariff, reduction thev "will try to compete against each other for the trade and will be forced by the stimu lated competition to make a better article in order to sell to the best ad vantage. We will not profit by the tariff reductions, as it will be the orig inal manufacturers who will get, tha benefit of It and we will have to add the increased price to our carments when we sell them to the public" . "What effect will the new tariff have upon, the sale of silk stockings In El Paso? Why. it will just double the sale." said Jake Miller, of the Whit House. "Prohibition on any article al ways means the increased sale of that article. The higher the price the more demand there will be for silk stockings. You watch. The makers of the tariff did not realize that there are quite as many poor people wearing silk stock ings nowadays as there are worn by the rich. "The raised price may prevent these from wearing silk hosiery, but It will not: affect the sale. Everyone re alizes that the tariff was made to give certain manufacturers the chance to sell their silk stockings at just about their own price." "The -best wav to get religion into a bdv is to do it without his knowl edge." says Rev. Kenneth Brown. "That is the reason I believe in a church doing settlement work. Through our gymnasium In the church building, we are attracting more of the young peo ple in our district than anv other wav. I had a father say to me recently. "You are getting both religion and morals into my boys and they don't know it. They simply think Its fun to to to the gym. but It is also getting them to stay to prayer meetings." "From now on." says D. F. Whie. ot the White Commission company, "cat tle will be on the move. But up ut-til the tariff bill was signed 3tock was almost at a standstill. Cattlemen were all ud in the air as to what move they had best make, consequently no doals were closed. The buver was at a standstill, the speculator was afraid to move and the seller was waiting to see whether or not the- tariff would have anv effect on prices." . When asked If he thought the tariff would have anv effect on nrlces. he said that it absolutely would not. "However." he added. "It will have this effect: More cattle will be sold and consequently' money alone this lln will be freer than it has been in some days." i 5 -fr .

And Stephen still had his quarter! 'Jackson Ives was announced. Ives was a thorough man of the world. Suave, polished, well groomed and 40. He had made the acquaintance of Ste phen, and in three weeks it had ripened into friendship. Very little was known of him, beyond the fact that they had several business talks to gether. After the usual salutations, Ives no ticed the despondent note In Baird's voice. Re had been waiting for this opportunity. Stephen could no longer withhold the truth. He explained his financial condition reluctantly, told how he had come to the end of his rope, and had remained away from his clubs and deserted all of his friends, save Welch. "I knew It." said Ives. "In fact I've known it all along, but I wanted to hear it from you. I've watched and studied you, my boy." Stephen then told him about the mine transaction. "I'm going to make you a proposi tion," said Ives, "and whether "you ac cept It or not. I want you to promise that It shall go no farther." Stephen agreed. "You are going to pay that note and you won't lose your mine. I'm going to buy 20,000 shares of your stock." He placed the 20 $1000 bills on the table. Stephen was so amazed that he could hardly speak above a whisper. "But I don't understand?' said Ste phen. "This, is like well, I don't know what to say, Mr. Ives, but If you ever need help, ever want anyone to go through with you. I want you to prom ise to give me the first chance." "That's all right," said Ives. 'Tm going to see how far you will go. Sup pose I were to tell you that money was counterfeit!" Stephen quickly -placed the money back on the table. "I knew It couldn't be true it was too much to expect." ."Wait." said Ives. "This money Is superior to the government's. I've spent years In England. France Ger many and other countries. I've done nothing for the past 20 years but think, study, read-and write money. If you've got money, you don't need to spend it; all you have to do Is show it. Money makes money and you can't get it without it. Do you know what a new suit of clothes gets you? A pleasant smile. People can see a thousand dol lar bill farther than anything else of Its size In the world!" Stephen gasped at the man's au dacity and marveled at his convincing arguments. But it was all true. ' "Now, look here." continued Ives. "You have youth, manners, desirable friends, and would never be sus pected. If your friends knew you had all this money, they would fall all, over themselves trying to buv your stock." "What would the authorities do if they found out?" asked Stephen. ineyve got to get you witn me goods." replied Ives. "If they found the mopev on me It would mean 20 years, and with ytfu In on the deal 10 years." Stephen moved "further away from the crisp new bills. "But they won't," continued Ives. "They've been after me for 10 years now. but they'll never get me." Ives took a" telegraph blank from the desk and asked: "What's Reardon's first name?' "Mike," answered Stephen. Then he read the following telegram: "Mike Reardon. Mansion Rouse. Gal lup. Ariz. Double force of men. Work day and night have paid Morgan's note I own the mine. fSJgned). "Stephen Balrd." "But I haven't paid the note and I don't own the mine," Stephen argued. "Do you know what that Irishman will do? He'll work His head off." "And Isn't that iust what you want." answered Ives. Do you know what encouragement means to a man? If he thinks the note is paid and you do own the mine, he will work harder the last two days, and If he does discover gold, that's all you need " . They -were interrupted; Dy weicn ma his friends, who came to fetch him for the banquet. Welch brought one of the little favors he had distributed omonc his guests. Seeing Stephen so disconsolate he told the boys he was going to invest S1000 in Skyrocket, They all laughed at him. hut Welch had his father's check for 510.000, and was too unselfish to be so hapny on New Year's and see Stephen so discon solate. "I'd give you the money now." saao Welch, "but I only have this check and I can't cash it tonight." "I can." said Stephen quietly. Tha boys laughed and in one voice told him how much they wished Stephen had taken a roll of $50,000 In new bills from his pocket. "My God, look!" said .Sydney. "I know. boys. Steve's struck gold. His mine Is all right." Whereupon they all nil rushel towards Stephen with their New Year's checks and bought stock In the Skyrocket, as the clock struck 12. Jf- - The next morning Stephen was be sieged with telegrams from friends, acquaintances and people he had never heard of. Thev all wanted to buv Sky rocket. Even Mrs. Tyler was solicitous about his health. Mr. Tyler had In vested $10,000 In" the mine. The girls Grace and Ida and Margery Elliott all had brought their savings to Invest In the Arizona gold mine. But Stephen only had his ouarter. He could not spend the counterfeit money, nor was he able to cash the checks. In fact he was beginning to feel guiltv about inveigling his friends Into this deal, without explaining, but they would not listen to any explanations They had seen the money, and thatvwas convincing enough. Mr. Morgan paid him a visit to loan Stephen the S300. This was sent Imme diately to Reardon In Arizona, fol lowed by a wire telling the foremen that the amount was to be used for ba-k salaries. . , And Stephen still had the quarter! (To Be Continued.)

Most people think they know how; but it is astonishing to find how inaccurate all beginners are, how hard it is to be exact. The normal school teacher in training his class will explain that it is at just this point that one of the great benefits of manual work lies. Tha boy who is an eighth of an inch, or even a 16th of an inch, off in any measurement, will make a botch of his job. After he has learned this fact in the work of his hands, it will come to him that he should also be exact in his thinking, exact in his speech, and when that is accomplished, he is on the high road to success.
