♦'When a question is up," says Nominee Wood
row Wilson, "I listen to all the arguments and then
argue it in my own imiM.,y,*j>,-*--^*-, " . - ~ *"-V
We imagine that these few words describe Mr.
Wilson's character pretty thoroughly, and why isn't
his plan a pretty good one for all of us who haven't
such a big thing as the presidency staring us in the
face but who are apt to decide our little personal
propositions on impulse and without analysis of
facts and conditions'?-: . ' •• - - ;
It means to ''■ think before we act \ but l most of us
pass upon the small details, which really go to make
up life, without consideration of circumstances ;or
results. A fellow, maybe a person whom we dearly
love, says something that we do not like, - and we at
once try to :" give him worse than ;he sent". A bus
iness associate seems to take ': some advantage of us,
and we resolve to "lay for him" ever after. f Things
go wrong lin our house, and, instead of trying to set
them right, we storm and cuss. Nothing is f much
truer than the saying that most of our troubles never
happen. Yet, we forget that life is pretty much all
contention and that the best way to contend with
things or people is with calmness and sense." .
ffe|The\ fellow who hears all the arguments, chews
them over in his mind and then decides as conscience
dictates, feels satisfied • even if he sometimes has to
feel uncomfortable. '.- ■--' '.:■-■>.. ■■' :
Undoubtedly, ; Mr. Wilson , will make mistakes, for
the Lord never made a mere man so perfect that he
■was above making > mistakes, but Mr. Wilson f will
know that he decided :in (accord'»with what he i be
lieved to be the right, and, the fellow who. does that
can afford to let the selfish crowd which surrounds
him feel dissatisfied. ■ ; . ;^r ;, £M%

I The Honor of Honors |
f^>fA: question of glory is soon to be settled by the
placing of a statue of Dr. Crawford W. Long of Geor
gia, in Statuary. Hall at Washington.
In visiting that l hall you will recognize the stat
ues of Washington, Lincoln, Grant, Garfiekl and
others, but you will have to be told whom and what
deeds the marble effigy of Dr. Long represents, and
Syet. Long's glory ; surpasses that *of any other and
will endure as long as man lives and suffers. .:
After more than ; a half-century of dispute and de
nial, it is generally admitted that Dr. Long was the
discovered of anesthesia. He made the discovery in
1842, and immediately claimants of the glory sprang
up everywhere, chief among these being Dr. W. G.
T. Morton, a^Bb^tbnfdentist.' 3 Latterly the medical
societies) accredited the discovery to Dr. Long, al
though it is conceded that Dr. Morton , first made
: general use of anesthetics. X- y ■■■ ■..;''•.. 1 -\''-,
Strange to say, Dr. Long was at first abused. Re
ligious people denounced - anesthesia v: as ; deviltry,
claiming that the 1 Lord intended man to suffer, ■ but
nowadays there's nobody so religious but he'll yell
for the "laughing : gas" when his , ulcerated tooth
gets to jumping. ';' ■^■''•■y'^'^'"- %; ' *■ |^V: •■ ' --':
i ;^gfi;But^ now, pretty much all civilization j gives - the
glory to Dr. Long. What would you do if you visited
g Satuary Hall at Washington? * Would you worship
before the statue lof | the warrior, the statesman, or
the politician? ;or would ; your reverence go out [to
the i man J who gave to mankind freedom from physi

/Vlw"isrk Letter *&.
NEW YORK, July s.—Why Is
a theater orchestra?
Perhaps this question has
never occurred to you. Probably
It never has to most people. All
our theater-going lives we have
listened to the overture aa some
thing which had to precede the
rising of the curtain, to the be
tween-acts excerpts from the lat
est musical shows as a relief
from the chatter of our neigh
bors, and to the final selection as
something which makes the slow
crawl up the aisle a trifle less
tedious.
But do people really care to be
musically entertained, or assault
ed, as the case may be, before
the curtain goes up, between the
acts, and while they are leaving?
Theater managers have for un
numbered years taken it for
granted that they do. But with
in the past few days the question
has been raised in New York in
a way which has caused the
showmen to do some thinking,
and which may lead to a trial of
orchestraless theaters in this
city.
The musicians' union has been
gradually increasing the cost of
orchestra music by raising the
scale of wages, and its latest de
mand, recently presented, touch
ed a new high-water mark. The
theater managers got together
and rejected the scale.
"No music, then," said the
2fesrjtaythfi_s
The MORE one thinks about
SOME people the LESS one
THINKS of them.
THEN MA GOT MAD!
Ma —Boiled cow's milk is not
good for babies.
Pa —Sure not; a raw cow al

union.
Whereupon, to the Intense sur
prise and dismay of the musi
cians, the managers merely re
plied, "Oh, very well."
It did not take the union lead
ers long to see that their posi
tion was not quite what they had
thought it was, and to make over
tures (entirely unintentional
joke) for a compromise.
A compromise will probably be
reached, but the managers have
got a bee in their bonnets just
the same, and it may some day
sting the music makers.
David Belasco has had no or
chestra in his local theaters for
several seasons. He cut out the
music after trouble with the
union, and asserts that his pat
rons do not complain of the lack
of Instrumental entertainment.
As the omission saves Mr. - Be
lasco quite a little money, there
is not much likelihood of the
musicians getting back into his
houses. •
William Hammersteln has
hurled defiance at the union in
the present strained situation by
engaging for the Victoria roof a
women's orchestra that does not
belong to any union, and the
Gaiety theater has Installed some
kind of a foreign contraption in
the nature of an automatic or
chestra, looking like a huge
player-piano, and having violins
and other Instruments Inside It.

(Special to The Times)
CHICAGO, July 10.—"House
keeping is the lonesomest work in
the world," says Isaac Danielson.
Isaac ought to know. For Isaac
is a. liousehusband. And a fine,
brawny, well-set-up houschus
band he is.
, "And . what's a 'househns

Tut, tut! Surely you know that
When the housewife goes out and
hustles for a living, somebody's
got to stay at home and do the
housework. - Hence the house
husband. . -\
"Let : Isaac do it!" said . Mrs.
Danielson. So Isaac obediently
fell into line with modern
economic tendencies.
