He was a political boss and controlled the machinery of the Democratic party in Illinois, but his influeulc was far from an unmixed evil. He was a valiant fighter. Thaj U Why he won the position he heid. The pub lic! Impression of him was largely created by b!ftj political antagonists for their own coda. At', the same time most of them appreciated and even admired him as a man and did not hesitate to Beek. his favors when it served their purposes to do so. 'Mr. Sullivan rose from the people and he never lost touch with them. When he was working with his bands he was noted among his associates for bis physical strength. As he rose in affairs bis wisdom and sagacity made htm a marked man. ' He was a born lead er,' seldom meeting a situation that was be yond him. .'Like every good fighter he loved to measure fcis strength and bis wits with others. During his; rise in his party he had occasion to chal lenge and do battle vrith leaders' . in - all the political units, from the precinct up to the nation, and generally he came out on top. As the general in charge of the forces of his own party during a campaign he was a tower of strength against the opposition. When he was cot fighting Mr. Sullivan found time to work on the constructive side Bf things and he did so with just as much zeal as he put into his battles for political power. Much of the forward looking legislation en acted in Chicago and Illinois during the last ; score of years was passed largely because of the help he gave it. Generally he was on the side of reform and whatever he favored felt the impulse of Uis support in no uncertain manner: It neVer was the desire of Mr. Sullivan to hold office. He preferred to have others wear the insignia. He was, a maker of office hold ers", a field marshal of politics. He was rich but he did not rob the people. Personally he was. most lovable, easy of approach, kind of heart and always lookingfor the good, rather than the vll. in men.

Why BurgUur Iiuurance U Higher. " Peculiar reasons for advances in costs are not uncommon these days, but the excuse give by surety companies for advancing burglar Insurance rates 25 per cent in New York city is the strangest of them all. . It's all due to the scarcity of servants, in surance men say. m So fearful are employers that they will drive their household help away that they tolerate appropriation of clothing, liquors and even Jewelry and money rather than to file complaint - ' - "Servants, are privileged characters in the homes of the wealthy throughout New York," said the head of one surety, company. "In many cases holders of burglary insurance policies have cancelled their claims against the company rather than to prosecute a guilty servant, knowing that this would mean the loss of his or her services." One New York lawyer recently refused to allow his servants to be questioned regarding a $1,000 theft, 'saying: "Don't go near the (louse. If the maids suspect you, they will leave." , . One investigator reported a caaa in which a young servant girl had, in two weeks,, dis posed of eight cates of champagne and eight cases of whisky by holding wine parties in the kitchen for her friends and entertaining them with choice liquors from Ker employer's private stock. Although the owner knew he could not replace the missing beverages, he refused to prosecute. Why should burglars continue to run the risks of their vocation when there's such a cinch awaiting them in the domestic service in New York?

One thousand Irish' girls, just arrived in New York, may help solve the servant prob itm for New York housewives for a short while. About the time they become really useful, however, they will be getting married and in a few years many of them will be hiring servants of their ov.-n.

Five Minutes a Day ' With Our Presidents " Bf JAMES HOi GAJ. A weak minded individual is con spicuous by reason of his faculty muscular control. It does not fol low, however, that defective muscle control means mental weakness. Yet exercise is unquestionably es sential in the development of the mind. , An infant must have some brain capacity before it can make any intelligent or purposive movement whatever. A child must use- us brain In order to dig a hole in the ground, or climb a fence, or run a race. A newborn infant's move ments are almost Wholly reflex, in voluntary or automatic, like the movements a decapitated frog will make if a drop of acid be placed on a hind leg. But with repetition the higher brain centers for the in telligent control of these move ments are developed, and, in due time, the infant, without any inten tional schooling or teaching, ac quires the ability to co-ordinate its muscular efforts and that is edu cation. . Through exercise the child ac quires grace and facility of move ment, which implies a quick men tality. 4 A baby learns infinitely more by simple baby exercises than by studying the ceiling. A child learns more by playing with play mates, parents or envious visitors than by puzzling over books. A large part of the brain has no other function than the housing of centers which preside over various voluntary muscle movements, in cluding the muscles by which a child runs and builds sand piles, a3'i well as those by which it speaks. Writing a letter, speaking a piece, playing pianorunning a race and digging a hole are all mere variations in the form of exercise and the muscles used. Building with blocks, making pictures, cut ting out patterns, all these forms of exercise are taught children in kindergarten and primary school grades. Pedagogues know better than any one else how intelligent exercise educates. But pedagogues have for generations assumed that these childish exercises were suf ficient for the entire education of a boy or giri. Therefore, pedagogues have not encouraged, many of them have actually discouraged, propar physical education in the higher mliir ihlrtin have not been prop erly taught in the common schools. because pedagogues have oeen too ignorant themselves to see he need of these more edvanced les sons in tbe training of the mind. Our whole common school sys tem is at present cluttered up wteh a mass of unattached and -largely useless learning, which a normal and healthy boy or girl naturally detests and which only the aDnor mal or freakish child can absorb an etain long enough to Vpass." A good teacher is one who makes the child remember, not by Chinese repetition, but by impression of the fact through other channels than sight or hearing. QUESTIONS AJfD ANSWERS.

The simpliest little name of Het ty, suggestive of pleasant homely domesticity, has a lofty significance. It is translated to meany"a star."

A ragged, roving waif of the Rev olution, he grew up as wild as t weed. With, no hand above him, his high spirits led him into the temptations of his primitive world, whose social standards were 200 years behind the times. Drinking . and carousing, gambling, cock fight ing and horse racing, young Jack son never took a dare, the rustic sport once staking his horse and his all on a throw of the dice. A bully among rowdies, he went his roystering way along a road that is not to be laid down on the map of conduct as a course to the Whit , house. , Still the story points the moral Andrew Jackson, the unletteredJ that if a young man will only keep going, tie win leave tne follies or youth behind him. Jackson's faults were the vices of his rough sur roundings and they changed with changing circumstances. His sim ple virtues were drawn from the same rude environment, which molded him into a rugged, fear less man. who never forgot a friend and who never stooped to dishonesty.

"Good morning," purred Mrs. Leon Archmont- Bralthwaite, fash ionably, to an assistant manager, as she adjusted her furs and strolled through Elton's linen de partment on her way to the con fectioner's. Then she titled her auburn head a trifle higher and snubbed little -Cara Saunders, who was presid ing over, the noon hour trade pretty as a pink rose with the dew on it. .- Cara finished tying the $49.99 luncheon cloth, smiled at her eld edly customer, wbo had come in for a share of Mrs. Leon's snub, and then smiled again as she put ber hand with a quick gesture against two hard glistening round little, ob jects,' that for. exactly five weeks she .had worn beneath .her blouse, suspended by a cold chain. Cara was.flill smiling as she watched Mrs:' Leon's snobbish ' progress down the aisle, and greeted a fair large man who at that moment sauntered down from Elton's offices and smiled back at her over the counter, , Three months before, Ellen Bond, ?Ierk at Elton's ribbon counter, had married Leon Archmont Braith walte, eho had gone up like a rocket-:, with a splash of brilliant colors on hats and gowns, in lux urious apartments (almost equal to the ' Bird's Eye - apartments), in tbe clubs she joined and the the atre,' dancing and bridge parties she and her aristocratic husband natronized. and especially in her exeinsive.at homes on Wednesday afternoon. . Then, too, Helene's as cent wade a slushing rocket noise at the rolled along the city streets In her tangertoa-colored limousine, a genteel snobbish sort of noise at put to shame all the little racraekers and penny torpedoes, I they wen off in their old way, bifig along on the sidewalks. Now Cara Saunders, though a i day, to nice enough girl and most popular, come!" was, in Helene s estimation, a penny torpedo, and she would not even invite her to the "little in formal Elton at home" the next day. Only heads of departments should be admitted to such festivi ties, in her mahogany apartments. Even her little mother was rigor-1 ousiy excluded from such func tions. One had to make the ctSwei. impression. . -So Helene, - systematically, snubbed all except the rockets, anJ left her orders for the morrow's mousse and bon-bons, cakes and ice in Elton's caterer's depart ment. On the way out of the store she met a smiling, blue eyed man, whom she greeted effusively. He, too, was a rocket, or better, a fixed star. "I m anticipating seeing you to morrow. Mr. Elton." she told him. "I shall be there, Mrs. Braitu waite," he said cordially. "And bring my wife." -, . ' Helene arched her genteel brows, and' gasped with surprise." "Your wife!" she exclaimed. "The great John Elton married! What's the joke?" , . The man laughed. ' "iou'11 see. tomorrow, Mrs. Braithwaite." he promised enigmat ically. "We're sending over , the store's orchestra for you. Fine pro gram. " '..- Helene was busy all "the after noon giving orders to "her maids about the decorations, china serv ice and arrangement of furniture to give 'space for the Elton or chestra to whose music the elite were to be received, and planning her own . finishing touches to her gowning. She wondered much about Elton's joke about his. wife, while she planned.' Now, and then she thought of Cara's dancing eyes. They had been good friends once, shrand Cara Saunders. . The rib bon and linen counters were next to each other, and Cara was always 1 cheer up, the best is yet to And Eilen Bond had de pended on the other girl consider ably until she herself had become tngaged to the assistant manager. Now she shrugged her shoulders. "One has to maintain an aloof ness, if one is to rise!" she told her self. The next day the , Mahogany apartment hummed with genteel excitement as Helene had designed it should. But young Elton had not arrived, even long after the ap pointed time.' He was the man above all others whom she needed to make the occasion complete! The great mogul of the Elton establish lishment! Her husband's employer! The missing flame to make ber rocket's ascent into society regions a certainty. I Elton was a' great one for a joke. Was he going to perpetrate some horrid thing about that wife of his, he didn't have, this after noon? Surely not! But what could he have meant?- No one seemed to be anxious about bis absence, nor to anticipate a mystery, no one ex cept Mrs. Leon Archmout Braith waite. . , The orchestra was playing softly Lohngrin's wedding march when themaid announced, "Mr. and Mrs. John Elton." And into the aston ished assemblage of tbe elite, walk ed the great man, and leaning on his arm with the merriest expres sion on her pretty face, was little Cara Saunders, that had been. "Just our little joke!" Elton ex plained. "Thought this would be a good way to announce it Have no fuss of a big wedding and all the stuff that doesn't amount to any thing. We had a simple little time at Cara's home five weeks ago, kept the press out of it, license ou of state; and Cara's been wearing her rings' about her neck and working in her old place at the atom.

We'd like to have you drop in any time whenever you feel like it," she said simr.lv "Ti n be real homey, with lots of mother's Uffngs." , And Helene Archmont Braith waite, like most rockets, when she exploded, didn't leave much except me pmce wnere sne naa gone up!" ome SX l.MRJ ELI ZABETH THOMPSON ' iF Tannnt-rtrt la rani M i,!" !!. difsipalioan of his careless youth, but he never lost the spirit of the clansman or subdued lii ungov ernable temper.
