Paul Morton said he carried the

president says he is the kind of a man

the Rooseveltian idea of making appointments.
The I'nion for once is in line with
the press in general of its party. It
is much disturbed over what is going
to happen or what may happen at St.
IrTWtl,. Unfortunately there is nothing
likely to happen in St. Louis that will
have a tendency to relieve the present
state of mind of the republican news
papers, including ttie I'nion.
They tell us that June was a dry
month, which shows the necessity of
keeping a record of these little mat
ters. Had it not been for the figures
not one of us would have suspected
that we really needed more rain in

was cooler than the figures show it to
have been. It would be considerable
help if we could have these weather
figures in advance, so that we might
know at all times just what we are
Stand Pat Policy.
The Rcpubucail convention bas per
formed its part, which had been map
ped out for it by tin- oligarchy that
runs the Republican party. The can
didates and platform were selected
and concocted in Washington, and the
delegates were about as useful in
shaping events as a fifth wheel on a
coach. Not u voice was Raised against
the stand pat programme. All was
ominously unanimous. The trust mag
nates dictated the programme and
their emissaries, present in large nuiu
bets, approved and applauded.
The voters who indorse the candi
dates and platform of the Republican
party at the polls next November wfC
stamp with their approval all that it
stands for. The voters that csst a Re
publican ballot declare in favor of
trust high prices and allowing the
trusts and combines to continue to sell
their products cheaper to foreigners
than to the people of the tinted
States, in spite of the extraordinary
high prices and the small if any iu-
crease in wages, those who vote the
Republican ticket will say they arc
autlslied to " let well enough alone"
and. in the words of Mark Banna, vote
to "continue to let well enoujih alone."
Nor is that all they will indorse. If
they are farmers they will approve the

Spoouer and Quarles is no news to
those who have been long upon the
watchtower and observed the trend of
these leaders toward the corporations
and combines. The common people are
to them but sheep for the shearing and
geese Tor the plucking. That the Re
publican voters of Wisconsin and oth
er states, for that matter have so long
shut their eyes and voted the straight
ticket has leen a wonder to political
observers. How many of these voters
will ''take to the woods" or cut the
ticket now their eyes are fully opened
remains to be sen, but there should
be enough to bury the trust party in
Wisconsin and elsewhere beyond hope
of resuscitation and a new deal be inaugurated.
Revision of the Tariff.
The Republican claim that if the
tariff be revised it must be revised by
the friends of protection if the Repub
licans control the next congress is
therefore likely to lead to increased
tariff duties on many articles such as
the Michigan Republicans demand on
sugar and a certainty that no tax will
On the other hand, if the I'eniocrats
are successful their policy will provide
for a revision of the tariff, abolishing
or reducing the protection to thoe
trusts that sell their products cheaper
to foreigners than to our own people
but at the same time provide for sufli
clent tax to run the government hon
estly and economically administered.

A sea shell, whether in one piece

pieces (bivalve), as in mussels and coc

it consists of a colored outer horny
layer, a middle layer of prismatic struc

innumerable very thin plates, the edgs
of which break up white light into its
constituents, so as to give rise to a
beautiful play of iridescence.
The body of a Shellfish is invested
in a s:ft flap of skin known as the
"mantle." By the activity of this the
shell is secreted, a sticky fluid exudes
from its surface and quickly hardens
to form hrny or calcareous matter.
The nlts of lime are chiefly In the
form of carbonate, but there is also a
percentage of phosphate.
Only the edge of the mantle is able
to manufacture the two outer layers of
the shell, and repair of injuries is en

Miss Anderson was very romantic.
She could make a love story out of
any case where there was marriage or
failure to marry. One day Mr. and
Mrs. Buddington called, and as they
passed out Miss Cartright came in.
"What a singular looking couple,"
remarked Miss Cartright.
"Do you think so? Poor things, they
can't help it. That disfigurement is
connected with their courtship. Sit
down; I'll tell you about it."
Miss Cartright threw herself onto a
divan and Miss Anderson proceeded.
"Mrs. Buddington was not her hus
band's first love. That's w here the ro
mance comes In. I don't like stories
where children grow up together and
marry. I prefer them where the parties
come together in some startling man
ner. "But I must tell you that Mr. Bud
dington was first engaged to Miss Mar
tin. It was one of those cases where
a goad, noble man. when he is too
young to know his mind, falls in
love with a pretty face and afterward
meets one for whom he conceives a
grand passion. Mr. Buddington was
a gentleman born: Miss Martin was the
daughter of a nobody.
"Well, one day Mr. Buddington was in
a trolley car. He was not in business
dress; afternoon dress that is, frock
coat, silk hat and light pants"
"Trousers, you mean."
"Well, trousers if you like the name

his arm and at an angle. He was
holding to a strap, with his back to
the front of the car. when it came to
a sudden stop. Mr. Buddington was
thrown violently backward. There was
a shriek directly behind him, and.
turning, he saw a oesutirai gin, wnn
her nose bleeding profusely. His um
brella point had rammed it.
"Mr. Buddington apologized as best
he could and, as the bleeding continued,
suggested that the girl get out at a cor
ner drug store. She consented, and at
the next corner Mr. Buddington polled
the bell rope, the car stopped, and the
two got out, attended by a sympathetic
"It wouldn't have been proper for
them to go without a chaperon," put in
Miss Cartright. "How nicely it all
"Very. The drug clerk telephoned
for a doctor, who came and bound up
Miss Palmer's nose. That was her
name. Then Mr. Buddington insisted
on calling a carriage, and the three were
driven to Miss Palmer's home.
"The next day Mr. BoddlngtOO call
ed at Miss Palmer's house to ask how
she was doing. Miss Palmer's mother
came down Into the drawing room and
assured Mr. Buddington that her
daughter was doing very well, but her
no.se was bandaged and a bag of ice
tied to the end of it to prevent a re
currence of the bleeding. This of
course prevented Miss Palmer from

shocked at the idea.

Buddington could not surmise what
it meant. He was dreadfully wor

Palmer came down to see him, and
what do you suppose?"
"Her nose had been broken."
"Mr. Buddington felt that he was to
blame for the broken nose, and was so
sweet about It that he quite captivated
the poor girl. lie called frequently,
always asking her "What can I do to
repair the damage?" You see her
beauty was siolled and unfortunately
her face was her fortune. He couldn't
do anything to repair the damage;
only a doctor could do that and there
was some reason why they didn't want
to perform an operation In her case. I
don't know what, so there was noth

the matter except"
"To marry her."
