Help Santa Claus take care of the poor children at Christmas time. Do It now. The Argus shows you the way. The next house of representatives will comprise 227 democrats,. 163 re publicans and one socialist. The dem ocrats will thus have a majority of 63. Et tu Brutus! Pinchot has now turned on Roosevelt. He declares Teddy's straddle in the New York state convention was the party's un doing In that state. The Pullman company has an nounced to the interstate commerce commission its compliance with the commlfcsion's proposed reduction in sleeping car berth rates. Certainly. Had the Pullman company not been willing it is doubtful if the new schedule would have been thought of. Some one estimates that the Amer ican people annually consume 2.P95, 000 pounds of bad eggs. They are bought and stored when cheap, and after indefinite confinement are Fold as "rots,"' "spots," and "leaks" to bakers for use in pastries. The one way to remedy the abuse and destroy the lever that holds up the price of eggs when production is heavy, is to limit the time eggs may be kept in cold storage. Dix and l-'oss. Governor Dix of New York proposes to confine himself strictly to his con stitutional function. He will have no hand in the selection of a United Statrs senator. That is the business of the legislature. Governor Foss of Massr.chussetts, on the contrary, pro poses to take a hand in the selection of a successor to Senator Lodge. There is ono essential difference in the polit ical iiuation in New York and Massa chusetts. In New York the legisla ture as well as the governor is demo cratic. In Massachussetts the governor is a democrat, but there is a republican majority on the joint ballot in the leg islature. The outcome of gubernator ial generalship In the two states will be noted with some curiosity. Some Needed Reforms. Rockford Star: Under the rules that govern the lower house of the legis lature It is quite impossible for that body to legislate intelligently and hon estly. The committees ate strongly partisan and the chairman of each is the v.-hole thing. If he desires to pre vent a report on an important meas ure he refuses to call the committee In session. If it is desired to kill a bill and dodge responsibility it is re ported so late in the session it can not be considered. Another weakness is that legislation, as a rule, is so Ill-considered and ill-digested that the laws often contain errors enough to nullify them. What is needed is a bureau of imformation such as Wis consi.i has. .These and other reforms are suggest ed oy Representative Hruby, a demo crat, of Cook county. Mr. Hruby s sug gestions are as follows: That the democratic party Is opposed to any alliance with the republican party, or any of its members, unless that alliance contemplates the elec- - tion cf a democratic speaker. That the house committees should be organized along non-partisan lines and that both parties be given repre sentation upon all committees and chairmanships. That the democratic party pledge Itself to investigate the high cost of government in the state and favor legislation to reduce that cost and in cldsnlally taxation. Tb.U the house rules should be so amended that all bills must be report ed out of committee within a fixed - time with a complete report as to their disposition, to be signed and filed by the chairman. , That all bills, except appropriation mils rnd emergency bills, be placed upon the order of their passage and that no bill 'be tglven preference over the others. That the house establish a bureau of s information or legal department where members may procure legal as sistance in the correct preparation of their hills. That the house establish a reporting service, by the means of which the statements and speeches of members tnay be recorded properly. That an effcient stenographic ser vice he established. That the house, instead of meeting two days in a week, and-thereby pro longing the session for five months, should meet five days a week and complete the work in two months. Lessons From a Bad Fire. Yesterday's fire in the New Harper ,; which during its early progress threat - ened to prove one of the most dis- astrous in the city's history, empha I 6lzed four things. One is that Rock Island possesses, as has often been I aid la The Argus since the inaugu- ration of the paid department, one of the best organized, moBt courag eous and altogether one of the most intelligent band of fire fighters in the country. Another is that the city has acted none too soon in the installation of an automatic fire alarm system, now happily on the way. How the city could have gone along for years heedless of the danger of delay in providing this essential seems past comprehension. Fully 10 minutes time was lost yesterday when the fire was in its incipiency In seeking to reach the fire department by tel ephone. Once the alarm was com municated the firemen were quick to respond, and despite the circum stances that It happened at the hour of day when some of the men from each station were at dinner, the men did wonderful service. Another thing that was demon strated is the necessity of the or dinance regarding the right of way that should be given the fire depart ment on the streets at all times. Awkwardness on the part of a team Eter caused a collision at Third ave nue and Seventeenth street and held up the Central station hook and lad der truck 10 minutes. It was only by the most expert driving that the hose wagon from the same station preceding the truck cleared the ob stacle. Chief Newberry, himself a i clever driver who was on the box j of the truck in the absence at din- Tier of the reeular driver, did his i best to avoid the accident hut the offending vehicle was driven directly across in front of him. The conse quence was delay and the loss to the department of a valuable horse. Another fact that was brought out by thp fire is the need of a fire en gine in the business district. Be it said to the credit of Mayor Mc- iCakrin this ia a provision that he hinn urn-ori f rt t- como timo Vvor j since the putting in of the last pump j I at the waterworks, the force of t ri j water supply has been woefully de ficient. This may be attributable, j Tartly to the mains, but whatever i (the cause the stern fart oxists that! j the city has not the water facilities! 'to cope with a fire in a high buildin ; The only ro'medy is a fire engine. (That should be considered and witli- out delay. Iist of Her Race. The passenger has passed.

Amor can species that early in the last ' ; century swaimed over the continent' in fioks numbering billions. With the daii of this pole survivor of a bird' tribe, whose nesting pla.-.-os often cover ed hundreds of spuare miles, there will I soon disappear tho last trace of the iv jld pjgeons that have been slaughter ed by the millions by men who fed tho'r hogs upon the carcasses they ; could not carry away. Though it is too late to save the species, special efforts are new being made by the Audubon socio-.- workers to bring about the ro- ;siora..cn o f fithpr Kirfitf 1 1 p rnn , value that must otherwise share the isame fate. For many months systematic search has oeen mrle throughout tho conti nent !y officials of the Audubon asso- Iciatioi for relics of the once profolic ipasonper pigeon. Members of the ; orgA lization headed by Prof. C. V. : Hodpre of Clark university have made a sta viing offer of $1.5V to anyone discovering a nest of th;s species; but, ;thougii ihcusands have been trying eagerly for the prize, not one single claimant has appeared. In response to' I a rece.it Inquiry by T. Gilbert Pearson, f secretary of the National Assoiation ! of Audubon societies, the authorities i jof tli-i Cincinnati Zoo have just f nv-!

Audubon is quoted as observing a roosting place of wild pigeons in Kentucky early in the last century that extended 40 miles and was 3 miles in width. On its edges men with guns, nets, clubs and torches slaughtered the roosting birds, each often bagging five hundred in one day. When the wholesale butchers could carry away no more, they let loose droves of hogs to fattten on what was ieft. About 1S53 this treatment began to thin the ranks of the passenger pigeons till two years ago it was dis covered that only seven could be found on the whole continent, four at Mil waukee and three in Cincinnati. Sad as is the passing of the passen ger pigeon, its lesson may avert the extinction of other valuable species, it is declared, if the American people rally at once to save their remaining bird resources.

In the re cent rule of England it was not un common to see official statements ema nating from Buckingham palace sign ed "Knollys" pronounced Noles but that was not because he didn't own an antepenulta! syllable; It was attribut able to the European custom. "It happened this way," said Tifft.

On?e in awhile some overlasistent companion wanted to know just why it was that there was no first name. and after awhile Mr. Tifft becan an swering by physical prowess. But, as a rule, there were few queries. Such things spread. And then it came to the time when h! would have to vote. He and his father, who was one of the original members of the shook firm, went to the family counsel and asked him what about it.

Sue, a young couple i who were slaves on a plantation in j Virginia. The time was a week be ! fore Christmas, aud preparations were being made both by the whites and by j the colored people to celebrate tho day. From that moment Ben and Sue I spent all the time they were allowed j for themselves planning to give their children the first Christmas they had : ever known or nt least could appreci J ate. The last Christmas little Tom t was 111, and his "father and mother were hourly expecting him to be taken I away from them by death. That he ! had been Kpai'M to them and was now In good health added zest to their I preparations to make the coming cele i bratU'n the Christmas of their lives, i Ben secured a rocking' horse for Tom j my and smuggled it Into the cabin ! when the children were asleep. Sue bonpht a doll with a flue china head ; for Pinkey and made the clothes for 1 it herself. Besides the gift of the tur key, a lady living on a neighboring plantation -gave them a whole mince pie for their Christmas dinner. A few little things might be expected from i the church. j Every night when Ben came home i from work Tommy would run out to i meet him, and the father would take I his child up in his arms and say: ! "Christmas comln', honey." "Wlid's Kismas?" the boy would ask i with shining eyes, knowing that It was something enjoyable, buj ignorant of its nature. "Chrlsfmas Is de day de blessed Lord was bo'n.

And the boy would share his grati fication by tightening his arms about his father's neck and cpvering his face with, kisses. ,H iv . ... -v i. H 1 a By Lucy K. Vynkoop. Associated Literary i're. The preparations went on and the anticipations continued to rie till tho ' day bofore Christmas. Then Bqn sur prised Sue by coming t- the a bin an hour earlier than usual, and the mo ment she looked at him she knew that j someiiiing frrible had happened His j face had taken on that sickly hue j which in the colored race corresponds j to pallor in the whites. He came In j and threw himself face down on the J lied. : "Oh. Ben." crh'd his wife, ' what is ' it:- " ! There was ro reply. "Tell me. Ben! Io till me what's de matter." "Tommy's sold." The mother dropped as If she had been shot. Ben had been told the news by hH master and sent home to break It to the wife and mother. Colo- , no?. Torrance, the planter, had for some time intended to got rid of some of ' the children he owned. lie had no Idea of doing so at this Christmas sea- : pen. but a trader bad come along, had made an oftVr of ?:iOO for Tommy, and , Ids martcr had concluded to accept It. : The southern gentleman pi inter was ; usually a kind man. whose slaves were ( fond of him. But a slave was a chat- , tel representing a certain sum of mon- , ey, and a thrifty owner would 11a tu- ; rally lunke the most of his capital. Colonel Thomas was one of this class. ! He rtis'iked to separate families, but! under the system of slavery it at times ' became to his Interest to do no. And ; what was his Interest he considered his duty to himself and his family. Be;i, hearing his wife fall, sprang up ' aud took hrr limp body in his arms nnd laid it 0:1 the bed. Just as she came to herself the children toddled Inio the room and Tommy, seeing that something was the matter, began to cry. This started his sister. The two , wt lit to the mother, who, seeing her boy, arose nnd with a moan took him . in her arms. I "Oh, what a Christinas eve!" wailed the father. There was a rap at the door. " ! "Don't come in heah!-' cried the mother fiercely. "Yo' shan't take ma ; boy! I'll kill bim befo' 1 11 let him be ! taken away from his mother!" j Nevertheless, tthe door was opened, j were free. The face of a young girl appeared. j "What do you im an. Sue? I haven't Mp.iv persons find themselves af come to ti:e your boy. I"ve come to feet 1 with a persistent cough afer an bring you the turkey for Christmas Here it is." And she held up a four pound bird. "Ob. Missy Alice," said the father, "wo don't win no turkey.

The visitor, Alice Wharton, vat a girl of twenty, whose face bespoke the kindliness of her nature. But over kindliness triumphed indignation. "It is brutal:" she exclaimed. The mother continued to moan. Sev eral times A!ie essayed to speak words of comfort, but her lips refused 1 to say what was untrue. There was i no comfort for her to rpeak. Colon?l Torronre prided himself upon his strength of will to do whatever h con sidered it to be his duty. He had had Ftich unpleasant episodes in his life be fore and had never shrunk from carry ing out his plans. Alice took the hand of (he father in one of hers, the moth er's hand in the other, pressed them, und with the words, "God help you," turned and left the cabin. It was, as Ben had said, a melan- choly Christmas eve. Little Tommy was pur 10 oeu eany, cis mouier lying beside him. On the morrow he would pass out of their lives. It was near midnight when there came a rap at the door. Ben arose and opened it. A boy stood la the opening, but he was as black as the night and consequently invisible. Ben heard a voice say: "Missy Alice tole me to tote yo' de stockin' fo to hang up on de ctimLly. She sais she done tole Santa Claus to bring somepln nice fo' Tommy." Ben felt a stocking shoved Into his hand, beard the departing footsteps, closed the door, hung up tho stocking and returned to bed. When It began to tie light Tommy, who did not know that anything had occurred to interfere with Christmas, shouted: "Merry Christmas, pop! Merry Christmas, moml Merry Christmas, 1'inkey!" The only reply he received from his parents was a sigh. They lay for a while, dreading to get up. It was Christmas day, but the day as well that their little boy was to be taken from them. Finally Ben, urged by the children, arose nnd uncovered Tom my's rocking horse and Pinkey's doll. He glanced nt the stocking Miss Whar ton had sent, but, seeing that it gave no more sign of contents than when i he had hung it up the night before. pftid no further attention to it. But Sue. with n woman's inclination for In vestigation in such matters, took it down, put her hand iuto it and pulled out a bit of paper. This she opened, and on it in large printed letters that she and Ben could rend was written: Merry Christmas! I have ho';,rht Tom my. A LICK WHARTON. The -father and mother looked at each other for a moment before the full meaning of the words penetrated their brains; then, taking the two chil- j dien in tin: arms, all were united in, a single embrace. In a twinkliug all was changed. Miss Wharton now being the owner of Tommy, his parents knew v:ll that he j would never be separated from them, j The girl was beloved by the colored ! people, both her father's slaves and ' those on other plantations, for she de- I voted all her time to miuisteriug to , them. She had a little money of her own, and as soon as she knew of ' Tommy's sale went to the trailer, of- ' ered him a good profit on bis pur chase, it. was accepted, and the boy : passed into her ownership. As soon as Ben and Sue felt assured that Miss Wharton had arisen they started for her home to hear the j;ood news from her lips and thank her for ) hating been the. means of sparing' them a suffering worse than their child's death. She met them with a smile not less happy than their own. Ben tried to speak his thanks, but failed. Sue then tried, but did not got ; very far before she broke down fn tears, j And so it was that the Christmas j wbi. h eamo so iio;ir heim; a day of j ni'iiy was saved to this humble fam- i ly by an aivel of mercy. The chil- ! dreu enjoyed the toys and the turkey J and the mince pie. But there was in their parents that which did not come of several t'liie.-s. for theirs was a great comfort of the soul.
