The I I AM always coughing up, it seems to two or three; and 1 have to ship poll tax makes me hotter than a game; and the county comes along and climbs my frame, crying, as it wields its' ax, "Yon must pony up your tax," and the whole dodrotted business is a shame. For it's money that I work so hard to get! Every nickel means a bucketful of sweat; and my guilders and my marks go to fatten up the sharks who are holding down the offices, yon bet! And the final blow is coming down eftsoons; it will make our boasted freedom look like prunes, when our nervy Uncle Sam, the original I Am, puts his hand into the voter's pantaloons. And he'll take your little wad and count your scads, and hell confiscate the dollars of your dads, saying "I require the same, to conduct my little game" then you'll be a mighty mournful bunch of lads. And his motive if you do not see its drift is to penalize all energy and thrift; to the prudent man he cries, as he robs him, "You'd be wise if yon didn't earn this cash for me to lift!" (Copyright by George M. Adams.) WALT MASON. o Mexico's Political Indifference TWO MErT today are trying hard to make history Roosevelt and Wilson. Wilson is trying harder than Roosevelt because he is closer to the history making at this moment than Roosevelt is, but even in South America Roosevelt knows that if he can say exactly the right thing at this crisis in Pan American affairs, what he says will ring through time and never be forgotten. There come these critical moments when the right word crystalizes human affairs into right action. The right word will be neither a repudiation of the Monroe doctrine, nor a stubborn insistence that the interpretation of it, yester day, today, and tomorrow, must always Monroe builded wiser than he knew felt something bigger than he could say widened by the process of the suns. ideals.

No one wants aggressions, no one wants our American or foreign capital to interfere or hinder -the Mexican from being free, as free as he can be, being a Latin. Somehow the Anglo-Sixon seems to have deep abiding faith in political right that carries Ms governments always onward and upward. It comes 'with a shock to Americans to realize how little interested the mass of the Mexican people seem to be in their government. They leave politics entirely to a class. We are accused of it and we talk of our citizens being indifferent about casting their votes, but big and interested ballots are cast, whereas in Mexico only a few seem to know how to vote. In ear civil war practically every boy and man went forth and fought it out. In Mexico fighting is left to a class. The mass of Mexicans stood round as audience in the battle of Mexico city. There would be no audience in such a fight in a city in the United States everybody would be on one side or the other. The mass of Mexicans took the part of audience in the eelctions. The Mexican has sentiment, he is brave enough, when he is educated he is bright enough, he is polite, he is clever, he is skilful, he can work hard, he can be sober, he has love and pride in his family to prompt him right, but he just seems to lack political sense. It's the Latin in him. Conserving "A1 RHAMEHTv" that is preparedness servation df force as a factor peace," says- Alfred T. Mahan, tional authority on naval matters. He does not mince matters nor waste breath apologizing to the universal peace advocates. "There cannot be peace without force," he says. It is folly to contemplate any universal earth or to expect any general era of peacefulness that involves the giving up of armed power. In many of the quarrels of nations, there is neither law nor precedent to use in judging between them. Trying the claims out by clash of arms must still be recognized as the supreme court of inquiry. We are still savages at heart, and the world has progressed but little along the road toward civilization. The protests and standards and rights of a country must be backed up by an army and navy commensurate with its hopes and pride. This day of ours is far from being a day of perfect peace but equally far it is from being one of headlong, reckless plunging into war. The world is growing canny about war. Ideals are changing. It is not necessary to fight bloodily to the death to be brave, but words won't always win the day they sometimes have to be backed up by force and power. It is a practical day. Ideals are worth nothing unless they make good. Theories and outlines of perfection must be working diagrams or this generation will have none of them. High thinking must be reinforced by ability to do' hard hitting. It is an active, militant, aggressive day. It is not a day of philosophizing. Philosophizing has given way to golf. Men clear their brains so. Men give very little heed to why all their doing or to its ultimate end. They are content to strive mightily. Great deeds are doing, 'great dreams are coming true, but much of the success ef the day rides rough shod over the world. The clash of arms, the tragedy of battle is in the air. A southern woman asked Sherman: "What is more tragic than defeat in war?" 'Wictory, madam," said Shermanr o It is splendid fun for the outsiders to see Sulzer prodding and Tammany lashing ita tail and growling. Off On A POLITICS or no politics, Roosevelt is a big all around man and we can be proud of him as an American. He is equally at home on sea or land, as soldier, politician, cowboy, society man or scholar. He is no laggard in his enthusiasms anywhere, fighting, broncho-busting, banqueting or studying. From a delicate and wan little boy he has actually built himself into one of the most robust ef men, able to enjoy all hours, all places, times and seasons. He is J most amazing as a politician in that he can go off on a whole hearted, enthusiastic adventure in the name of science or geography leaving the field entirely to hi? rivals and whatever schemes and plots they may concoct. He will come back breezier than ever after his South American trip and be the keen politician ag3in 14 Years Ago Today From The Heraia This Date 1880.

Speaking about that makes me think of the Mexican girl at the house. On the morning of the EI Paso-Phoenix auto race, she came running Into the house. She was I so excited she could scarely catch her breath. " 'Oh. Mr. Tom Lea,' she cried. 'Some thing awful .must have happened. I theenk many peepul were killed.

"There was not a half minute dif ference in the timp of the racing cars that started on the El Paso-Phoenix race when they came through the smelter settlement" declared motor cycle "cop" Will Davis. "I tell you the way In which the race was started out of here and the manner in which every driver observed the xules is com mendable. When the racers entered the smelter precinct I timed them alL and there was not a variance of over a half minute in the time of each. Had I known that everything would have been- so orderly and well directed, the cars could have gone 40 miles an hour through the smelter town. They could have done this, I mean, and no one or no thinir would have been harmed. I paced every one of the cars through" the precinct. .Not a one ran raster through there than the other. Bvery driver stayed right with me. The race that Johnny Johnson made is remark able. He had only been in that car two hours before he went Into the race. He showed his nerve and ability as a driver." "There has been a great increase of travel through Kl Paso," said union depot gateman Charlie Bunts, "and we have some amusing experiences with the traveling' public. A few days ago a man who said he was an attorney of New York City asked me if we had United States time In El Paso.

Born in 1552 in a peculiarly unhealthy time, owing to the general hostility pre vailing, he eked out a precarious living by fighting and discovering until about 1C08, when he returned from America with the price of a few weeks' board and lodging in his pockets, and while walk ing on the palace grounds discovered queen Elizabeth hesitating before a muddy spt ' where the lawn sprinkler had' flooded the vicinity. Sir Walter had only one mantle and owed his tailor for that, but he did no hesitate. Hastily removing it he laid it on the mud and begged the queen tD walk over it. She did so and while Walter hastened to the cleaners through the alleys the queen went back to her palaceand appointed him gentleman-in-waiting, discoverer extraordinary, im perial poundmaster, second assistant postmaster general, and congressman from seven districts. She also sent him a new suit of clothes. Sir Walter Raleigh was now a made man, but he did not bask in' society and spend his time idly driving his racing car over the common people.

He discovered tobacco and introduced. "it in England, but was not guilty of roll ing cigarets. All would have b,een well for him if Elizabeth had not died. Her I nephew, who took over the stock, fixtures and good will of the empire, looked coldly on Raleigh and declined to iall for the coat game or any other form of politeness. He stuck Sir Walter into prison where the latter lived for 13 years writing poetry and books and feeling for his head each morning nervously as he awoke. Finally he was released be cause of some skilful press agent work concerning some of the king's mines in Guina, and burned a Spanish town to show his gratitude. However, the Span ish ambassador was a friend of the king's, and this proved his undoing. He was tried for murder, arson, malfeasance in office, treason, and on suspicion of be ing a suffraget and was beheaded Oct- 29, 1617, with great eclat, going through -the ceremony with a grace and courtesy which endeared him to all.

T OWARD the end of their second week In New York Julia and Caryl Marvin packed their few belongings, surrendered their trunk to an expressman who was to take it to their new rooms, and said goodbye to the kind faved matron of the home at which they had been staying. "I am sorry you have to leave us, Miss Marvin," ,this woman assured Julia, pressing her hand warmly. "It doesn't seem right that we are allowed to shelter the inexperienced girls like you and your sister for only a fort night, and then let them go their lonely way. But with the constant de mands we have made upon us for rooms there is nothing else that we can do. Goodbye and if I can help you at any time, please let me know." To Caryl the matron gave only a rather cool handshake and a brief word of farewell. She was a -woman who. by stilted and careful speech, tried to conceal the dificiences in her early education, and she suspected the younger girl of making fun of her behind her back. "She's & horrid cat!" declared Caryl to her sister as the door of the home closed behind them. "Thank heaven we are free of her!" "Oh, Caryl," Julia protested, "she Is very kind, and was always most pleas ant to us." "Pleasant!" sniffed CaryL "She got on my nerves always snooping around to see if we had been doing something we shouldn't do! I am tired of hav ing people look after me." She drew down the corners of her mouth and wrinkled her nose in Im itation of the matron's expression of countenance. "Young ladies: she mimicked in a high pitched voice, "I trust that you are not breaking the rules of the house and cooking in your room. I seem to scent boiling coffee." The .imitation .was irresistibly funny and Julia laughed in spite of herselJ. "Well, don't -worry about her any 'more, sister dear," she comforted. "We are free of her forever. We are our own mistresses now. And I don't know," she went on after a moment's pause, "that I am as glad of that as I expected to be either. This city is so big." "That's why I like it." asserted Caryl, who was today bubbling over with high soirits. "It's so big and ro mantic, and something thrilling may be waiting for us right around the corner. I -wish an exciting adventure would come along right here and now." Uncossciously she began to hum a merry little tune as she walked. Her color was nign anu ner ruunueu iorm showed to advantage in her blue serge dress. She was slender, yet not min: she had a graceful figure and was 1 Y-.1-3 1 .2-. 3 -.... aware of the fact. The sisters stopped at a corner to allow a car to pass before attempting to cross the street "That's a pretty tune." said a mas culine voice close by them. Julia started at the sound. At Caryl's elbow stood a man. He was well dressed, but wore more lewelry than good taste would sanction.
