EDITORIAL PAGE THE TACOMA TIMES State Grange Backing Bills Which Ought to Be of Interest to City Folks, Too Two of the progressive campaigns of the Washington State Orange are being carried on by C. R. Cottrell, with an office in Kent. He is getting out a great deal of interesting information on the kind of rural credits bill, which the farmers desire passed at the next ses CREAM FOR THE INFANTS Secretary of Commerce Redfield is washing the good old reliable nursing bottle, intends to fill it with cream and start fostering a new brood of infant industries, as soon as the war ends. The war has cut off certain imports, dyestuffs for in stance, and certain American manufacturers have had to make things which they formerly imported. These infant industries are likely to die of colic or ane mia, when peace enables the foreign makers to get busy again, and so Redfield is considering specifications for a wall that will bar out the foreign rejuvenated pauper infants. Being a democrat in high office on a low tariff platform, Redfield feels that he can't consistently resort to a high pro tection wall, and so he's crying aloud to "practical commer cial men" for suggestions. But we think he's too sensitive on this point. The old fashion fostering of the infants was largely open and above board, a sort of honorable gougery, as it were, and it will smell as strong however disguised. Nobody, nowadays, is fooled by the claim that "the foreigner pays the tax" but all see that the fostering business is that of making all of us American consumers pay so that we can have a new infant in our midst. Why such brain-work to conceal the identity of the cows who will sorely furnish the cream for these conring infants? Why not the good old fashioned Mark Hanna spirit, instead of an effort to disguise, cover up, fool somebody? Mark never resorted to the low-down, sneaking process of picking pock ets. Mark just courageously and frankly put a gun to your nose and took what you had with such skill, directness and manliness that it was almost a pica-sure to be robbed. The king has fallen! Ty Cobb has been put out while trying to steal a base already occupied. Bonehead! Ivory! Busher! E -yah! Cleveland court has given a man 30 days because every time he saw a policeman, he swoit or started a fight. Strange effect those Cleveland policemen have on folks!

"is there anything particular jrou want to see Richard about, Margaret?' he asked. "Nothing, Mr. Selwin, except that I have what I consider a splendid opportunity to invest a p\it of that ten thousand dollars that Aunt Mary left me and I wanted to know if the money would be available, today." Mr. Selwin smiled. "You perhaps don't under stand, Mr. Selwin, that th* part of the estate left to me was most ly money In the savings bank. As 1 understand it six thousand dol lars was in the savings bank and the other four was In government bonds." "Why don't you leave your money in the savings bank, Mar garet?

"Dick told me the other day that he thought you would want to buy some more stock in tbe book concern." "I do not know why Dick should say that, Mr. Selwin," I said. (I hope my voice did not express tbe heat I felt at Dick's assumption of disposing of my money without consulting me.) "We have now"— "You mean you have," inter rupted Mr. Selwin, "the stock is all in your name." He said this with a great deal of emphasis, as though to Impress me with Dick's generosity in giving me the stock. He did not know that all the money that had been paid for it was mine-—money that my motii er had left me and that I had earned myself—except the divi dends from the stock which we had applied. "You have now," he continued, "ten thousand dollars paid up stock and fifty shares on which you have paid twenty-five hun dred dollars. I think your divi dends during the next three years will take care of this. You, I be lieve, are also lending twenty-five hundred dollars to the concern on a call note at seven per cent." "Let me ask you a question. Mr. Selwin. Would you want Mrs. Selwin to put this ten thou sand dollars into the company if it had been left her? Oh, I know that the company has made and will probably again make flftv per cent on the investment. B.'t if anything should happen to Dick and to you and the business was i carried on by strangers, you _H>e I am a minority stockholder and I would have nothing to say about the policy of the company.

Here are two bills that city men as well as farmers might get behind and boost. You can get copies from CottreU by sending to his Kent office. ARE YOU CARELESS WITH YOUR MAIL? The Germans say that as a people we are mighty care less, not to say reckless, and every once in a while something happens to prove their charge. The postmaster of Chicago has just issued a statement that 43 per. cent of the mail handled in the Chicago postoffice is improperly addressed! Get that; nearly half of the mil lions of pieces of mail deposited every day. And the cost to the Chicago P. O. of looking up addresses and correcting mis takes is $85,000 a month. Of course this condition isn't peculiar to the Chicago postoffice. It exists in the Tacoma postoffice also, but per haps not so seriously. Do you always stamp your envelope? Do you always write down the correct name of the city? Do you write the street address legibly? Don't be careless with your mail! A WEAK PROPOSITION, WE AGREE We notice quite a rising up of girls against the proposi tion of Mrs. Charlotte Smith, of the Women>s Homestead As sociation of Boston, to put wire cages about stenographers so as to prevent husband employers flirting with them. It is clearly justifiable rebellion against a foolish undertaking. Of course, much would depend upon the size of the wire meshes. A two-inch mesh, for instance, would let through most fruits, all candies, ooglings, gum, kisses and other things with which employers flirt, and certain it is that a 14 --inch mesh would let through an ordinary employer himself. Indeed, it would seem that the reform is only possible through adoption of a solid steel cage and even this would have to be easily removable, in order that office business might be prosecuted. Think of an employer having to run and clap a steel box over his stenographer every time he thought he heard his good wife's footsteps. Huh! Wo guess the whole thing is just a scheme gotton up by the Association for Promotion of Male Stenography, and we're with the girls for treating it with contempt and contumely.
