You'll be sure to find at least half a dozen of 'em willing to take boarders, but you want to be equally sure to pick out the one that talks the most, so that she'll tell the neighbors all about you. Don't worry about that, though. They all talk. When you've moved in stock up your room with about twenty of the driest looking books in the world. Lawbooks look most imposing. Fix up a table with lots of stationery—pens and pencils, red and black ink. and all that sort of thing. Make the room look as if you were the most sincere stu dent over. And by no means neglect to have a well worn Bible prominently in evidence. You can buy one second hand at some bookstore before you start out." "I'd have to. of course. I thank you for the flattery.

Kill), by American Press Association. he Piazza del Venetzia is my fa vorite abiding place when I am in Rome. The reason of this is that it is the most stirring part of the internal City. Above the piazza is the Capi toline hill, on which a state building is being erected and from which extends the Corso L'mbi'ito. the main shopping street of Rom W there 1 make it a point every afternoon to go down the Corso to one of the sidewalk res a a and drink Fraseatt wine. I was sitting one afternoon on the sidewalk in the Piazza Colonna. off the Corso, when a young officer and a young girl took a seat at a table near by. I speak and understand the Italian language tolerably well, and it as not* long before I caught the word Americano. he man was talking about the American who frequent Rom in such large numbers inveigh in against the a in which they demoralize the tradespeople and serv a by their lavish expenditure of money. Officers of the Italian a my a re from the upper classes, and this man was of a refined type. Th girl he as with was of the a me class, tastefully dressed ami pretty. My admiration, was especially excited by her splendid hair, which as coiled up in re at rolls worthy of an empress of ancient Rome. he lady w.-is l.-imen! that her family must remove from the home they had long occupied, owing to the rise in rents. She was also telling her companion who. I judged, was her fiance, that she needed a sum of mmi ey. without which some trouble or in convenience would accrue. Th young man was lamenting his inability to furnish the amount having nothing but his pay in Hie army which is small enough indeed I could not but feel the injustice of my having several times the income I could spend, while these poor young people were? in de peral straits for a few hundred francs, and what disturbed me more. as that conventional barrier which prevented my giving them the amount they needed, a matter which would have conferred upon me as much pleasure as on them. They arose and went away without knowing that their strictures on Amer icans had been overheard by an Amer ican and that they had not modulated their voices sufficiently to prevent my getting a vague idea of their necessi ties. As they departed the officer said pleadingly, "if you do it will break my heart," to which the girl responded. "If I do uot I fear my mother will die." The very next day I met the same young lady on the Corso. On her face was a sad but determined expression. Without any definite purpose I turned and walked in the same direction as she. Presently 1 saw her turn into a shop, in whose windows were wom en's switches, wigs and cosmetics. I could look through the glass and see he girl in conversation with the pro prietor. She removed her hat and let dowu her hair. It was the most mag nificent display I ever saw—very thick and reaching to the floor. The pro prietor was inspecting it. The meaning of the words of the officer who had been with her the day before—"If you do it will break my heart"—was now apparent to me. She was about to raise the needed funds by parting with her hair. I sauntered into the shop. The proprietor motion ed me to a seat while he bargained with the girl. Presently I heard him say: "It is too valuable for me to buy just now. when I am short of funds. CoDie in at another time." "Does the senorina wish to sell her hair?" I asked. "My wife is looking for ti switch." "Yes. senor she would sell it." "I would buy it, but my wife is not in Rome, and I prefer not to own it until her arrival. But if the senorina will make a contract for it I will pur chase it now." The lady was interested and said that the goods could be delivered whenever I wished, whereupon 1 took the proprietor aside, asked him what the hair was worth stud told him to offer on my behalf double the amount. It was accepted with delight, and the lady asked when and where 1 would have ray purchase sent. I said tfiat she was to wear it till 1 called for it. Then I paid the whole amount of the purchase money. The lady went away much pleased. 1 left Rome the next day and did not return for a year. One day on a sidewalk restaurant on the Corso who should I see at another table, but the officer and the lady whose hair 1 own ed. They were staring at me. Then they arose and came toward me. "Senor." said the lady, "a year ago you bought my hair for your wife." "I remember doing so. My wife has not yet arrived." "When will she come?" "I don't know. I have not yet pick ed out a wife." There must have been something in my eye to give the lady a cue. for she •miled. "Your accent indicates." said the of ficer, "that you tire a foreigner." "American." That oom The two looked at each other, then at me. Then we all smiled together. "I leave my possession in your care," I said, "till my wife wishes to use it." I raised my hat and left them, they evidently not knowing what to do. 1 have never seen them since. OUR ILL PAID WORKMEN. Wages In the United States Are Lower Than Elsewhere—Foreign Workmen Paid More In Proportion to the Out put. If the Republicans of Iowa are as firmly convinced of the incontrovert ible soundness and wisdom of protec tion as their platform declares them to be they are hot upon the highway to ward' a shocking- disillusionment, for in the same platform they point to "the difference between the cost of producing dutiable commodities at home and abroad" as the one impor tant fact to be known, and therefore favor the ere: ion of a nonpartisan commission to .ascertain that differ ence and publish the facts. Let this be honestly and efficiently done and all apparent need for protection to main tain "American wages." the only con sideration in support of protection that has any value outside the directors' rooms of tariff sheltered trusts and the confidential intercourse of domineer ing stand pat leaders, will vanish. The difference in the cost of produc tion in this country and abroad once generally known to the American peo ple, it will be obvious to every voter. though a wayfaring fool, that the cost of production is lower in the United States than anywhere else in the world. The reason is that wages of labor are higher everywhere else than here. The notion that American wages are relatively high rests upon a ludi croir-'y ilhgical method of comparison. Look at comparative wage statistics in any all protection literature and you will find that the t'ime consumed in proiln tlon, ajtd never (he resulting product, is the basis of comparison. Because labor abroad gets, say. a dol lar a day. whereas American labor in the same industry gets. say. $2 the conclusion is implied and often as serted that American industries can not pay American wages unless com piling foreign products are burdened Willi a tariiT high enough to make up for the lower wages abroad. This is like saying that a freight car can't compote with a wheelbarrow because it costs so much more. The compara tive productiveness of American and foreign labor, the determining factor. is ignored. If American labor at $2 a day produces, say, twice as much in a day as labor abroad at $1 a day, why is protection necessary to maintain American wages?—Public, Chicago. Difficult Request.
