Rumesy lost the nomina-' <ion for representative from Park county at the recent primary has just' come to light. It seems that Mr. Rum sey’s failure to make the grade was due to the same cause which brings on failure in many other affairs —a I lack of proper advertising. While Rumsey was at home wrangling hors es and dudes his opponents were go ing about telling the voters that he had no meritorious platform to run on. This was decidedly unfair to Ms. Rumsey, as it now turns out that he did have a platform and one which would have swept him to victory by an unprecedented majority had the voters only known what he proposed to do if he got into the legislature. According to a friend of Mr. Rum sey’s Bob’s ambition when he got into the state house was to introduce and secure the enactment of a law to es tablish what might be known as an interstate tariff. Uuder this act state legislatures would be empowered to protect their own industries by levy ing a tariff on products imported from other states. Had the people of Park county known what Mr. Rumsey proposed to do, his vote would have practi cally unanimous. They point out the tremendous ben-! efit that such a law would be to the state of Wyoming. Take the moon shine industry, for example. In this! state are hundreds of honest, hard-1 working moonshiners with families to; support working year in and year out! to perfect and put upon the market a product that would be at once the sur prise and delight of our citizens. What is the result? The reward of their in dustry and sacrifice is to see their product turned down by home con sumers in favor of goods produced by the pauper labor of Montana. Colo-! rado and other foreign states and sold at prices which mean ruinous compe tion for home producers. This is manifestly unfair to the in xant industries of our state. They need and demand a tariff and not a tariff for revenue only but a tariff for protection. Do we want our chil dren raised up under the same condi tions that surround the children of the 50-cents-a-day laborers of Montana and Colorado? We do not It is pretty generally » conceded in these parts that Mr. Rumsey has struck the keynote to the future suc cess of the politically ambitious in Wyoming 1 , for honor and fame will follow the man who is able to have enacted laws which will protect us from ruinous foreign competition. NOT HELPING OPERATORS’ SIDE The unnecessary suffocating and burning of 47 workmen in a Califor nia mine adds a good deal of public sympathy to the laboring man’s side in industrial disputes. FAMOUS WRITER SAYS WORKING AT SHOSHONE DAM IS A MAN’S SIZE JOB (Continued from page () than 6,000 acres on its surface and 300 feet deep, and unlimited light and power. I saw the Shoshone day when the engineers were throuwing tfieir first cable footways across the chasm, and 1 saw it again the other day, finished but for its power plant, and sending water down to desert farms fifty miles away. It was a cold, bright autumn day, and the wind howled down between dark walls that climbed from the riv er up to where the pines—mere stub ble against the sky— caught the sun several thousand feet above. It was a gale you could lean against. It swooped across the 'lake, flinging spray high above the crest of the dam. And the shrieks and beating of it, the arms of spray writhing sky ward, seemed to give voice and a sort of active malignancy to the dead, stu pendous weight of water imprisoned there. More Thrilling Than Air Mall The engineeer in howling against the wind, led us along the road that skirted the lake to a box like cradle, about breast high, sus pended near the dam crest from a cable, which hung in turn from an other cable, stretched, sagging, across the canon, far overhead. He motion ed for us to climb In and swung aboard himself, legs dangling over the side, like a small boy sitting on a board fence. The cable tightened, the car lifted under us and, swinging slightly In the gale, crept out over the abyss. I i had just come from flying with the) air mall from Salt Lake to San Fran-j j cisco—seven hundred miles over; mountains and deserts —but not even ' there had 1 been aware of quite so 1 | poignant a goodby feeling as at the I moment we left the edge of the r >ck 1 and dangled in the gale above Sho shone canon. The little car—a spider running out its thread —dropped slowly past the cheer gray concave face of the dam, down to the spray and thunder pf the river, for the water, with its three hundred feet of head behind It, came hurtling out of the mountainside like a small cross section of Niagara. It’s All In The Day’s Work We saw the turbine intakes down there; compressed air drills were thumping • men carrying dynamite, i Ladders, slippery with spray and held Iby wires to iron rods driven into ’ ! cracks in the canon wall, ran up the ' face of the rock to the top of the dam ’ ! —fit for circus acrobats, you might ; think, rather than for ordinary men | in overalls and heavy boots. And yet they, as well as the cradle in which ; they had descended, were all part of ■ ! the day’s work. ; At one place the canon wall, a sort! of conglomerate here, had begun to give way, and men, fastened by ropes to solid crags farther up, were prying loose the bowlders, to send them crashing down to the river. These bowlders were supposed to go under a footway across which workmen con stantly passed, and generally they did go under, but sometimes they smash ed full against It, and now and then smaller chunks shot over the bridge like cannon balls. How the Troll* Were Amused Nobody paid the least attention to this, except the harder the bowlders shook the supports of the footway and the nearer they came to hitting some body the more the genial trolls work ing up above seemed to be amused. Every thing about Shoshone seem ed to be done with a similar Brob dignagian humor. It was a man’s size job, and man’s size men were doing i it. from the quiet giant who was su | perintending the work to the roomful I of huskies whom we joined In shovel ing in beef* and beans and bread pud ding and coffee. I And the whole thing, from the great , dam itself to the spirit in which the 1 men were working, all set in this I magnificent background of towering I cliffs and rushing water and wind, seemed to show one side of America —what one might call our altruistic materialism —at its best. One was glad of a government which planned and undertook such beneficent enterprises, and of the I husky, cheerful men who were carry ing it through.

It is hard sometimes for the old and the young to arrive at a common point of understanding. The old lady and the Sunday school boy in this story did finally arrive at an understanding, but not until the boy had suffered ’ damage to his feelings, if not to his 1 possessions. A picnic was in progress, and the 1 benevolent and elderly lady took much ' enjoyment in witnessing the delight of ■ the children who were disporting them selves In her grounds. She went from one to another, say -1 Inga few kind words to each. Pres j ently she seated herself on a grass ; plot beside Dickie, a little boy with , golden curls and an angelic expression, i But as soon as he observed her sitting ; beside him Dickie set up an ear-pierc ing howl. t "Have you the stomach-ache?” she t asked, anxiously. } "No, I ain’t.” snapped Dickie. "Perhaps you would like some more cake.” "No!” roared the angelic child. "What I want is my frog that I ketched.” "Frog?" "Yes, my frog! You’re sitting on him I”—Philadelphia Ledger.
