The tariff bill as good as passed and the currency bill assured passage at this session attest early achievement of the first and greatest reforms of this administration. With a railroad strike imminent and j threatening tie-up of all the eastern lines of railroad. President Wilson brought theheads of labor and the heads of the railroads together in con ference and when he had finished with both announcement was made' that there would be no strike until arbi tration under the Newiands act should fail. So unobtrusive was his course, so free from the spectacular aud the theatrical that hardly one per son in 10 noted his part in averting the strike. The president is wonderfully en dowed with self-control and the power of getting where he wants to go with out calling anybody a liar on the way, inpulting anybody with impeachment of the integrity of his motives, or be ing deflected from his course. "THE KOAD'TO HEALTH. Dr. Edwin Ash, the distinguished English nerve specialist, addressed an audience of 200- nurses in London last week, in which he said "that the rules of health are to eat slowly, to walk slowly, to dress slowly and to speak slowly. Nervous disorders are caused by indigestible and hurried lunches, by wearing too tight clothing and by needless won-y about details of domes tic, professional and business life. Barristers, Journalists, doctors, busi ness men use up a lot of energy over the telephone, and then th?y worry over details which exhaust tneir nerv ous energy simply because they take themselves too seriously. Fully 80 per cent of a nervous specialises ratrcnage are professional and business men of all ages. The terrifying sen sation many of them feel that they have lost control of their thoughts, and cannot sleep for thinking of busi ness, causes them t,o think that they are going out of their heads. The nervous system shuts off nervous force from the stomach the first thing, and keeps the brain, heart and lungs going .until the subject approaches collapse.' Once the stomach is upset it does not di gest its meals. Men, always strung up to the highest pitch, are easily over worked. The most intelligent are apt to be neurotic." All of which is true. If people would adot Sidney Smith's rule and take short views of life., they would avoid much of the worry that now characterises most of our busi ness life. Every man is able to take cere of today. It is when he frets over tomorrow that he becomes nerv ous, irritable and breaks down. WHAT llKADIUlS DKMAM) "As old-fashioned as knee breeches and ihe slashed doublet, ' are the rounded, perfectly balanced perlod3 over which our forefathers loveJ to linger in their reading, according to Colonel Georpc Harvey in his vale dictory as editor of Harper's Weekly ( 'onCl Harvev ,8 an au;hrity. for he ! n!aintained the :d 6tyle long enouh 1 aflr ' ceased to be the vogue to per- teptibiy cut down tlie circulation of what in f'.s day was the most widely lead and widely copied news-literary journal of the country. And he has. been honest enoi' ?h to make a free and frank confession of the fact that he permittcj hinibelf to fail behind In the ever onward movement in the Journal istic profession. lie sees now that tastes in reading have changed quite as much in the pa.n few years as 'astes in clothing, and that the mi nutely detailed style of diction went cut with the hocpskirt and the pow dered wig. "looking over the files of the Week ly," he wrote, "we found not less thai twenty long editorials on civil service in thirty successive Issues, and very little flse. They were sound, cogent articles, and. of course, admirably written, but how would they take on the nev.stands in this hurrying age? Not very well, it may be imagined. The reading public of today is not clamoring for ponderous writing, no i ,.,.. ,. j be.'' His observation and experience have led Colonel Harvey to the following interesting conclusions: "The twentieth century public has no objection to thinking big thoughts, but it simply will not tolerate ponder- ousness in the handling of them. The ' passing generation asked instruction; that or today demands stimulation. The readers of a fev years ago de lighted in having the point withheld as a last tidbit; readers of the present insist that it be shot at them in the first paragraph. Words must crackk -my iud sung l ke snnkM llle must ne pictures as well as sounas. "Writing today must be crisp and 1 terse. Thoughts must be boiled down in.o taoioia form.

The learned writer has not gone out. of vogne, but today he must not parade hi learning. "The old style was pleasant and geuny sausiymg; tne new it more sincere and purposefuf. Because it leans so definitely toward simplicity it is more democratic. The common man a stranger to books, magazines and newspapers a decade or so ago, has been educated to demand a sparkle ia every line and a punch ia every paragraph." Capital Comment BY CLYDE H. TAVENNER ' Congressman frem the Fourteenth District. (Special correspondence of The Argus.) Washington, D. C. July -'u. L.ue, liberty and the pursuit of happiness are guaranteed to every American citizen by theDy constitution. tneiwiji be compelled to hire an attorney, constitution, now- ever, does not undertake to guar antee any stand ard of life or liv ing to Americans, That deficiency is supplied by a bifl which has been introduced in con gress by Senator J.. Hamilton Lewis of Illinois: The Lewis bill, if en acted into law, would guarantee to every American, man or woman, who has employ ment, the right to live according to the American CLYDE H. TAVENNER standard of living. The bill, which is known as tne National Wage Commission bill, is one ! of the most advanced pieces of legis- lation ever; introduced in the national legislature. In reality, it is a mini mum wage bill, and Senator Lewis has drawn it so as to be all embrac ing in Its scope. ' There i3 hardly a worker in the United States who could not claim its protection. The scheme worked out in the meas ure provides for a national wage com mission. This body will be made up of several hundr.ed commissioners one wage commissioner, in short, to every congressional district. Under ordinary circumstances, each wage commissioner will settle the wage dis putes in his own district, though in important cases three or more com missioners may Join in acting as a Jury. The salary provided Ior each commissioner is adequate to secure i the services of good and competent men. . - Whenever any employe believes that the wages paid him are not sufficient j to pay for a living on the scale to which he is justly entitled, he brings HARVEST TIME. (The Breeder's Gazette.) Preceding the wheat harvest there is moch of preparation. Many things are to be looked after. Railroads patch up every box car that can be made ser viceable. Thousands cf men travel to ward t.he wheat country, where addi tional workers are needed. This army of harvesters includes the ordinary farm laborer, the professional hobo, the unfortunate man out of employ ment, and now in large numbers the college student who makes both mon ey and muscle in vacation days. Citi banks send out gold and silver to pay the harvesters. Butchers in small towns, where ordinarily but a few hua dred pounds of meat are sold in a week, place greatly increased orders with packers, knowing that farmers will buy liberally of t,he "thresher's cut." Threshing machine manufactur ers and implement dealers work extra forces overtime in order to .meet ihe demand for machinery. Elevators, in cluding ten thousand ftnail plants scattered throughout the entire wheat country and immense structures with united capacity of ten millilons bushels ormore in a single market and consign ing center, get ready for the rush that t,he harvest season always brings. Visit a farm when the threshers are there. If possible go before they climb out of bed at 3 or 4 o'clock in the morning and see the engineer get up steam. Watch the hustle of t.lie entire household. Become acquainted "The Young Lady The young lady across the way says she overheard her father say hat the trouble with the team was that th ey didn't sacrifice enough and how could fa Jucse them so harshly without knowing anything about their home life! complaint before the district wage J commissioner. That official sets a date Ior a hearing and Bummons wit- ;nesses The procedure is made simple tne Dlll so tnat no complainant! hut can conduct his own case. ' Having the power of a court, the commissioner can put witnesses on oath, can determine the ability of the employer to pay wages, and from this and expert testimony he "decides on the standard of living to which the complainant is entitled and whether the wage received is sufficient to pay for this standard of living. In case the commissioner7 decides that the wages paid are too low, he can fet the minimum wage wMch the employer must pay to any particular workman or group of workmen, and if the employer after this decision refuses to pay the wages set by the commissioner he can be punished in any court and can be sued by the workman for the difference "between the wages actually paid during the whole term of his employment and the minimum set by the commissioner. .The employer is given the right of .fcrV.:. miss'ioner. But and this is one of the most progressive features of the bill the measure provides that the award of the commissioner goes into effect immediately, and that the mini mum wage is paid all during any court proceedings .which may follow. Otherwise, whenever a commission er wouldset a minimum wage, the employer might enjoin the decision and then figlit a case for years through the courts. This Is the ort of legislation which the working people of this country are demanding, and the sort which must eventually be tenacted. With his dear insight of the public needs "and his vision or tne tuture, benator iiewis is one of the pioneers of the new type 'of statesmanship. The enactment of (the bill he proposes would do much toward ending the labor troubles in this country, if wise and progressive men were given charge of the execu tion of this law. with the work of the "women folks' preparing a harvest dinner. Go with tne workers to tne fields. Pit.ch a while from the shocks, sweat, unload a wagon . or. two, watch the wheat as it flows from seperator to sack. All t,his will give one an idea of but one step in the handling of the world's bread crop. Get on one of the wheat wagons, ride to the little coun try town, wait, long in line for aeffancs to unload, then help handle the sacks at the elevator, or platform or into car, and glean further knowledge that counts. Of these things most every farmer knows. He also knows the satisfaction he feels when, after delivering the last load, returns are figured and he goes to the bank, where an old note is taken up or substantial figures of de posit are writ.ten in his pocketbook. Wheat is not only one of the greatest of ready money crops, but it, is also one of the most dependable. Often when, because of a deficiency of rain- fall, "King Corn" is humbled in the1! dust, wheat yields abundantly and en ables many a farmer to tide over hard times. , , " Lisbon, Portugal A bomb exploded in a coppersmith's workshop here as the proprietor opened a drawer in which it had been concealed.

"She looks like sixteen," giggled Fan ny Banks from her corner by the win dow. ' Dresses like sixteen and looks six- I ty," corrected Mrs. Banks severely. "Not sixty, namonisnea .Mrs. mow ris from the sewing machine. "I think Mrs. Binns looks about well, about forty, and she does take a lot of comfort in wearing pretty clothes." She sighed and fastened her thread with Impatient jerks of her thin fin gers. She looked tired and fagged. Before any one could think of a suitable retort to the remark of the minister's wife the door opened and Emma Binns glided into the room. Her bright eyes darted a quick glance around, and she gave animated greet ings in different directions, ignoring the rather grim salutations she received in return. Any one else In Little River might have noticed thnt the Ladies' Aid so ciety strongly disapproved of Emma Binns and her youthful style of dress ing, except Emma Binns herself. If she suspected it she gave no sign of her knowledge. She placed her white parasol on the square piano, calmly dusted her nose with a bit of powder produced frim a tiny vanity box, fluff ed up, her hair, sat down near Louisa Sluli ana opened ner suk woraoag. "What shall I do this afternoon?" I f he inquired of Mrs. Morris. "Buttonholes," suggested Mrs. Mor ris, tossing over a number of white garments. "Such elegance could not attempt anything so coarse as hemming flannel petticoats," murmured Mrs. Banks to her daughter. Fanny giggled again and threaded her needle. Emma Binns was sewing nimbly , with swift motions of hand and elbow. There was a contented smile on her face, and her lips relaxed into pleasant lines of repose. There was less1 chatter than usual as the members of the Ladles' Aid so ciety partook of the refreshments pass ed by angular Louisa Mull In her mus tard colored cashmere and Emma Binns in her girlish white. That the two women had little to say to each other was unnoticed, for the many pair of eyes were watching the bright brown Psyche knot and the. twist of blue ribbon aud strongly disapproving of both on the head of Emma Binns, widow of Simeon Binns, who had been dead scarcely two years. i Mrs. Binns was the first to leave. As she unfurled her white parasol and tossed it over her shoulder she knew that the women she bad left behind were busy with her nadie. Her thin cheeks flushed hotly, but her eyvs mnintnined their brightness until she arrived at her own square white painted house and closed the 6or on the outside world. She hurried upstairs to her own room and faced her reflection in the old fashioned mirror. In the dim aft ernoon light the sight was a very pleasnnt one to Emma Binns, who thought she had said goodby to youth twenty years ago, when she married Simeon and" settled clown to a life of drudgery. She had slaved for Simeon and helped him pile up his dollars only to find that he lind left her a meager pittance out of the whole amount and willed the rest to a brother in a dis tant state. Simeon had always been mean and "grasping and small natured, and be bad so ill treated Emma that she felt a sense of relief when he re luctantly bade goodby to bis dollars and went to a greater reward. Little River never understood why Emma Binns wore black for a brieV year and then returned to colored gar ments. It thnw up its hands when Simeon's widow openly confessed to dyeing her gray hair until it shone more lustrorsly brown than in her girl hood days. They scoffed at her" modish gowns, her girlish hats and her love for bright colors. They did -ant know that her girlhood had been starved of all finery. To escape 'poverty she hnd become Simeon's second wife, and she had paid the price of marrying for money. She hnd suffered, and she was free once more. Now she was indulging her starred taste for pretty clothes, and if in her eagerness she threw aside good Judg ment and forgot the aging years Lit tle River remembered and frowned npon her attempts to relive her girl hood. People said she was angling for Frank Mn!J. Louisa's bachelor brother, who kept the big grocery store on the corner. Louisa frowned fiercely at the idea, and Frank Mull -closed his lip tightly whn his sister repeated Ttl litffe gossfp. "She's all of fifty f sniffed Louisa. "So am I." l'rark had retorted once. "She claims to be oaly thirty." "Did she ever say so?" "No, but she dresses that way, and it's as good as saying so." "Then you must be eighty, Louisa. You certainly dress like Grandmother Mull," said Frank cruelly. And after that 6he let him alone. The next time the Ladies' Aid. met atLouisa Mull's bouse the members of that charitable organization tw-itter-ed with suppressed excitement, for Louisa had promised them something in the way of a startling surprise. ' "What's it going to be?" whispered Mrs. Banks as she sat down near Louisa. . Wait until Frank the phonogrann ciecea for ns; then you'll sec" Loulsa"cou7d not help a sly glance at Emma Binns' face, bent above hor sewing, ani Mrs. Banks knew that the surprise had something to do with Emma Binns. of whom It wns known that Louisa Mnll as fiej.rcIy jen,ous on her brother.,, aecoullt Tmmn fte game g0WQ . which she had appeared at the min- . . ,,, Ister's house, and the brown hair still boasted the blue ribbon, and somehow It was vsstly becoming to the little widow. If nobody else approved of these fripperies it is certain that the starved' vanity of Emma' Binns rejoic ed in wearing them. They made her happy, and happiness took years from her age. When refreshments were served Frank Mull came in and wound up the talking machine, and there were much music and singing and pleasant con versation, snd Frank Mull looked con tentedly at Emma Binns and voted the affair ft great success. It was when they arose to go that Louisa Mull led them into the parlor and pointed to a large crnyon portrait on an easel in one corner. ''This is a guessing contest," laughed Louisa nervously. "I'll give each of you one guess as to who sat for that picture. You begin, Fanny." Fanny Banks pursed her red lips and ' looked at the badly executed portrait of a woman dressed in the period of twenty years ago. The bodice of the black gown was tight across the chest, and the sleeves were great bags of fullness stiffened with crinoline. The hair wns strained back from the face, and across the forehead was a small, fluffy bang. Even the prettiest woman would have taken on ugliness under the painfully unskilled pencil of the crayon artist And although the wo man in the picture showed signs of prettiness it was overshadowed by drawn lines, of age. "Well," said Fanny Banks smartly, "if the picture wasn't taken twenty yenrs ago and the woman looked so old then I'd sny it was the living im age of Emma Binns." , There was silence, while each one carefully traced a likeness to Mrs. Binns in the horrible portrait. All came to the same conclusion' at the same moment. If Emma Binns look ed forty years old twenty, years ago the style of the dress was that of a score of summers past now she must be sixty. Was It possible? With one accord they all turned and looked at Emma Binns. Her face was white ns marble save where a little red spot glowed on her cheek bone. She looked handsome, her blue eyes flash ing, her Hps trembling. Back of her stood Frank Mull blaz ing with wrath. Louisa, his sister, cowered against the wall. She had never seen her brother so angry in all her life, and she was afraid of him. "Well, Emma?" giggled Fanny Banks Indifferently. . ''It is my picture," said Emma F.Inn proudly. "Simeon had it done the first year I wns married. I expect I looked Just like thnt, tired and old and worn out, for he was a hard man, ns you all know, those of you who can forget thnt he wns rich. - "I was only twenty years old then, but I admit the picture makes me look forty! What of it? Don't you care for me for myself for what I am? Must you bicker with me over my age? Don't you want to see me hap py: l am nappy now, nappier man I ever have been in my life. I wonder if yon are glncl, you members of the Ladies' Aid society. If you only knew the bitterness, the long years, the un happiness" Her voice broke, and she hid her face In her bands. "I sup pose I seem foolish, but my heart la young yet." One by one the members of the Aid society glanced at the blue bow on tho bright brown hair, the head that had held Itself so. bravely and so Jauntily the past two years of freedom, and then with averted eyes they stole quietly out of the house to hold a meet ing of self condemnation, whereat they agreed that hereafter Emma Binns could dress herself like "a clrctif wo man," ns Nancy Ballard expressed it, nnd they wouldn't wink an eye. "We'll see that she has a happy time of it," nodded Mrs. Banks over her shoulder as she left them, and even shallow Fanny forgot to giggle and followed her mother soberly into the house. Back there in Louisa Mull's parlor Frank Mull wns holding Emma Binna in his arms and comforting her -with loving words, while ont in the wood shed Louisa was viciously smashing the crayon portrait to pieces with an ax.. "I don't know what tempted me to buy that picture from Simeon's auc tion." grunted Louisa, pausing to draw breath. "I wonder what makes me so hateful to Emma Binns? Somehow, the idea of having her for a sister-in-law lg quite pleasant, and Frank's so happy, and they've been so good about forgiving me this cut-tip.
