The big question is whether a certain class of American citizens are enjoying a bene fit under the laws that all other classes do not enjoy. This government Is basod on the idea of equality before the law, and it is well known nowadays that the laws are not equal when they give one set of men the right to plun der their fellow citizens through lhe medium of a high tariff.

Had Leonard not understood the Idiosyncrasies of the opposite sex he would have abandoned his efforts either in a hifff or In desrair. As It was, he prepared to bombard the lady's heart as well; as ber person. He would not pour water or mud upon her. He bad a scheme worth two of that. He hunted the town for a toy mortar to send out ammunition by means of a I spring. Not finding anything large enough to stilt his purpose, he bad one made.

From Mr. Treranlne's window be could look down on to the Thornea rear porch, the latter fronting eastward. Miss Thome was accustomed to come out on to the porch about 4 o'clock la the afternoon. Sometimes she walked In the garden: sometimes she sat oa the porch reading. Early one after noon Mr. Tremaine gathered his am munition In bis room and, planting his mortar at tils window, awaited bis enemy's coming. At the usual time she appeared, strolled for awhile over the rear grounds, then, returning to the porch, sunk in a cushioned wicker chair, took a book from a table beside ber and began to read. Tremaine, who bad his weapon charged and ' sighted. let loose the spring. He had practiced after night fall and got the range. Suddenly Miss Tremaine found herself deluged with, pansles. She had not recovered from her surprise before another charge reached her, this time lilies of thc val ley. She glanced up at Tremalne'a window Just in time to see a couple of dozeu fuchsias leave It and descend upon her. Then her fair face broke Into a smile. The last and more ef fective charge consisted of roses.
