If Gompers, Mitchell and Morrison, of the American Federa
tion of Labor, are criminals because they published .the fact that
organized labor doe* not patronize the Bucks Stove ft Range Co.,
than Indeed we re almost a nation of criminals, and should be en
joined along with the labor leaders.
For haven't we been using the boycott on the beef trust in a
way that would make the biggest trades union boycott look pale?
Haven't fashionable woman's clubs publicly declared that
they "don't patronize" the beef trust. Small capitalists and near
millionaires who have been loudly proclaiming to trades unions
for years their divine right to "run their own business" have en
rolled In the vegetarian union. These "strikers" have denied
themselves the Juicy porterhouse with the same spirit or sacri
fice as devotees to a labor cause. Staid old newspapers have
proclaimed the beef boycott in their columns. The boycott has
been made respectable.
It has "hurt business" for the trust even if it didn't solve
the cost of living problem.
But no big, wise judge enjoined the nice ladles' clubs to
stop them from "hurting business." No editors of metropolitan
dallies are going to Jail for declaring the beef trust "unfair" to
the consumers' union. The people wouldn't stand for that.
Shall we conclude that there Is one law in America for labor
unions and editors of the American Federatlonist, and another for
women's clubs and we more "respectable" editors?
Put Water Under the Navy
A man named Meyer is .secretary of the navy. Meyer is a
relic of Rooseveltlsm. He is trying to put a crimp In the gang of
rocking chair admirals and politicians that has been milking the
navy appropriations for years. Citizens who believe in a big navy
out of patriotism have been disarmed in their argument because
more than half of the money is being spent on land. Senator Hale
of Maine heads the navy gang.
Chief Constructor Capps plays with Hale. Meyer, who is try
ing to float this stationary navy, has the fight of his life on
his hands. Meyer ought to have the encouragement and support
of all good iltizens who think that it's a good thing to have more
water and less pap about the navy-

"Now that spelling has been re
vised," laughed Arthur Bates,
"there's only one way for us to
achieve fame, Flora, and that's
by revising the dictionary."
"All right; let's do It," pretty
Flora Price smiled back at him.
"Where Is the ponderous
tome?" questioned Arthur, and
when she had pointed out the
volume to him he brought it to the
big table and placed It directly
under the student lamp.
"Of course," suggested Arthur,
"we don't have to begin at the
beginning. We can start anywhere
we want to." He flopped the book
open. "Let's see," he continued,
"what have we here? Ah, a
shooting star—that's easy, and it
certainly needs revision."
Arthur wrote rapidly on a
sheet of paper, and then passed
the sheet over to the girl.
" 'Shooting star,' " the girl
read, "'a good excuse." A good
excuse for what?" she queried.
But her rosy cheeks belled her
pretended ignorance.
"I've got a great idea!" cried
Arthur suddenly, after gazing at
her admiringly for a few minutes.
"We'll make this 'Love's Diction
ary.' We'll revise the volume to
suit lovers!"
For a moment the girl appeared
to be on the verge of saying
something, but she thought better
of the matter and remained silent.
"Now what have we got next?"
murmured Arthur, turning the
"leaves of the dictionary rapidly.
Presently he laughed gleefully i
and wrote manfully for a few i
moments. Again he passed the ;
sheet over to the girl. "Read it i

The girl passed the sheet bark
to Arthur.
"Extremely silly," she declared.
"Here's another," Arthur cried.
"Listen to this one. 'Bravery—
what a girl shows when she tells
a bashful man who is in love with
her, that she is in love with him.' "
"Really, your definitions are
not at all good," Flora declared,
when Arthur had finished. "I'm
sure your revised dictionary will
be merely a work of love—it's cer
tain you'll not be paid in fame or
money for such attempts. But
here you've been doing all the re

Arthur shoved the book across
the table to her. His heart beat
furiously as he watched her rapid
ly turn the leaves of the big book.
She was so extremely pretty and
he was so greatly in love with her
and so afraid to tell her. Present
ly she found the word she wished.
Then she wrote pn the sheet of
paper and handed the latter to

Arthur glanced up quickly at
the girl. The light that he saw
in her eyee made him forget the
revision of the dictionary and all
questions of cowardice and brav
ery. In a moment he had raced
around the table and clasped the
girl in his arms.

Pretty Underwear For Summer
Every woman delights In dainty
underwear. If bought in shops j
ready made, or hired made by the
seamstress, the cost is something
"not to lie sneezed at." If a woman

Women are now making these
garments in sets of chemise, night-'

the combination garments arei
more in evidence. Certainly withj

Thinks Women Are Too Impuls
ive to Vote and L;n k Foresight.
(S|«-i i«l Corres|miuleiice.)
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind., Feb. 14.
—"Women hay« no business to
vote or to hold political offices.
Tier sphere lies In the home."
This was the declaration of Mrs.
Thos. R. Marshall, wife of the
governor of Indiana, when asked
LoJay her opinions on woman's
suffrage. With characteristic
frankness, Mrs. Marshall declared
herself opposed to woman's suf
frage in any form.
j "Women are too impulsive to
■ have charge of the reins of the
(government; they do not weigh
jquestlons sufficiently, as men do,
jand are too Ilk.-ly. to be guided by
their sentiments rather than the
equalities, or inequalities of a sit
uation," she declared.
"J do not believe in women's
suffrage," she continued, "for the
reason that I have always felt that
men are more capable to take care
of public affairs. If there Is any
place at all where a woman's voice
.should be heard, it Is in matters
regarding the governing of the
'public schools; but still I am In
clined to believe that men are Just
as competent there as elsewhere."
Mm. Marshall said she had held
i these opinions for a long time, and
she had based them on what she
had observed of men as the direct
ors of public affairs, and of what
she knew of women with their Im
pulses and their often unstudied

Betty and Bobby had been very
naughty children. They had brok

even hit good dog Tinker with a

mamma sent them up to the attic
for the afternoon. They didn't

down the stairs when no one was
about and ran out to play in the

seeing a largo stone nearby they
sat down to rest. But, strange to
■relate, no sooner were they seated
on it than the stone —for it was
a fairy stone —began to grow
higher and higher right up into
j the air. Betty and Bobby were
itoo frightened to Jump, and it
jgrew 'way up to the clouds so fast
| that they had to hold on tight.
The white, fleecy clouds were soon
all about them, and there on top
of one cloud was the dolly they
had broken, and sitting beside her
was the kitty whose tail they had

me and treated me unkindly. You

Immediately the clouds were
covered with many cats and dolls,
each throwing something at the

not even move for fear they would
fall off the stone.
