Last spring The Spokane Press presented to the peo ple the commission form of city government, as prae >r . tised by Galveston, Dcs Moines, and San Diego, California. The plan was discussed more with the idea to educate the people about it, than for immediate adoption. The city hall tangle is likely to result soon in some kind of a crisis. It is good that the people know something about the Galveston plan. Spokane may need such knowl edge to put it into execution. " It is well for citizens to think over this new form of gov ernment again. It has worked in splendid fashion where adopted. San Diego took it up less than a year ago. The city has not regretted the action. Think it over. The Press nlay possibly have more to say about it later. Commission Form of City Government. • In this carnival of changes at the city ball, officials must beware of one thing, sure. They must "go light" on tam pering with the water extension movement. And they must remember that the people want Reuterdahl to stay. That was peculiar fore thought by Governor Tom Marshall of Indiana in re fusing to take a Mississippi river steamboat ride with 30 southern governors unless his wife went along: "As Mrs. Marshall endured the campaign work with mo," Gov ernor Marshall explained, "she ought to go, too." Such words of the governor are bound to kindle sus picion and sadness from Memphis to Natchez, and from Paducah to Tuscumbia, Ala.—in fact, anywhere in river circles where brave southerners have been accustomed to kick in with blue chips when they held hands worth back ing. What kind of a thing does the Hoosier statesman think southern hospitality is, anyhow? Ever since the governor of North Carolina met the gov ernor of South Carolina, the river steamboat has stood for an infinite hospitality that no Indiana man can under stand. As Colonel Culpepper Meriwether Carter once re marked: "When the canary birds are a-singin' and the band is a-playin', I natehully want to accommodate any gentlemen in the aftah cabin who requiah au extra hand in the game!" Governor Marshall deserves to bet set right before the south. The Wabash is not the Mississippi, and the south might as well know it now. Either the governor didn't dare trust himself without his better half, or he didn't read his invitation between the lines. It is noteworthy that he is the only governor who didn't accept, which casts new light on the aforesaid Colonel Car ter's boast that he had been all over the United States and part of Indiana." Governor Marshall has let slip by a rare opportunity. In these days of rectified goods and marked cards, there is something stimulating in the thought of a Mississippi river trip on a steamboat full of southern governors. The bands will play, the canary birds will sing and the gover nors' wives will be far astern. Southern hospitality will shine, with or without Governor Marshall. But he has overoloked a great trip.

WIFE GETS DIVORCE BECAUSE HUSBAND HASN'T TAKEN BATH SINCE CHRISTMAS : TACOMA, Oct. 4.—Judge John Shackelford of the Pierce county superior court went to Seattle yes terday and while there heard the idivorce suit of Mrs. Lillian Kemp, •who asked for a decree from Siathew Kemp on the grounds that Jie was cold and crabbed towards J>er. The court listened patiently while Mrs. Kemp related incidents to substantiate her charges and then asked: ! "Is there anything further?" * ."Well, judge," responded the Witness, "my husband is not tidy In his personal appearance, and he lias not taken a bath since last Christmas." "The decree Is granted," was the ready response of the court. < "THE UNDERWOOD Because—vißibie writing as originated in the Under wood, entirely eliminates the wasted time and energy sjHJiit in lifting the carriage of a "blind" machine.

Mats Aye- aad Stevens St. * Mrs. Kemp charged in her com plaint that she married Mathew Kemp at Blame on July 7, 1908, and that soon after the wedding ceremony the husband began a course of cruel and nagging con duct, responding to her friendly overtures with cold and crabbed replies. A general complaint was made along these lines, but no ref erence was made to the bathless charge until the wife took the wit ness stand, where they constituted a crushing climax to the testi mony.' There was no denial of the charge upon the part of the hus band. Mrs. Kemp's name, by de cree of the court, was changed to her maiden name, Lillian Hamil ton.

TELL ME A f/STORY:" PLAYTIME- THE MAGIC NEEDLE "Grandmother Tippy Toe Lost her needle, and cannot sew." Of course if it had been just an ordinary needle the dear old lady could have bought a new one at the store, but this was a magic needle given to her by the fairies. She used it to make their dresses and mend the butterflies' wings. All the fairies turned out to hunt for it, but it was nowhere to be found. The fairy queen was very sor ry to know Grandma Tippy Toe had been so careless, but Really promised that if grandma would go to the magic thorn apple tree at midnight alone she would a new needle, which would be J>ers, growing there on the tree. In payment for it she must make the queen a new dress out of moon beams. Grandma was a little afraid to go alone, but to keep up her cour age she hippety-hopped all the way to the thorn tree. She was so happy to get her new needle that she made a beautiful dresß for the queen of spun silver cobwebs trim med with dewdrops for pearls, and one out of moonbeams. Really, do you know these beau tiful dresses pleased the queen so much that she gave grandma a magic thorn tree of her own to grow right In her own backyard, so she could have all the needles she wanted, 'cause all old ladies lose needles.
