COMMENTARY ON WHITE RULE
Indians Have Flourished Only Where
the White Man Did Not Want
In only two parts of all America are
the Indians as numerous todty as when
the white men came-in Canada, north
of the Saskatchewan, where the popu
lation is actually increasing; south of
the Rio Grande, in Yaqui land, where
whip and sword and rifle have failed
to conquer what should have been
placified. Inlfnorthern Canada tile fur
hunting Indians have prospiered in
peace for two reasons. The white men
did not take their lands. They did
not want them. The land of the Far
North was only good for furs ; and so
the second reason, or from purely
selfisi motive to increase the output
of fairs, tie Indlias have been treated
with ibsolite justlec if with absolute
despotlim. Tite safety of the lone
trader's life depended oil absolute jus,

RESTORE CASINO AT OSTEND

After nearly flive years of war Ostend
In resuming ordinary life, as far as pos,

the. reopening of the famuous casino,
says the 1a1l Mall Gazette.
Less than twelve weeks ago, says a
Reuter telegram, the great salons of
the casino were a scene of devastation
and wanton destruction. Although o
cupying so prominent a position on
the sea front, the buildings themselves
escaped the constant bombardment
from sea and air that has transformed
so many of the beautiful hotels and
villas along the Digue into heaps of
rubble, and the use of nine tons of
glass has repaired all the damnage thus
occasioned, but the Germans showed
their usual thoroughness i gutting and
dellling the salons themselves.
10very slick of furniture was taken
away, beuautiful tapestries were slashed
and torn by Geriain bayonets and
every nirror I Ilithe halls' was removed,

February a imiracle has been wrought
and but for the fact that some of the
more valuable fittings are at present
only temporarily replaced by imitation,
there will he no evidence of the war,
so far as the casino is concerned, when
it reopens soon.
RATHER OVERDID THE THING
Friends of Candidate for Government
Appointment Laid the Flattery
on a Bit Thick.
John L. MeNabb, attorney, tells this
one on himself: "When I was a can
didate for United States district attor
ney in this district several years ago,
my friends procuredl documents and
testimonials without number to sub
stantiate the desired appointment, and
a book full of this eulogistic matter
was forwarded to President Taft. An
outsider reading the documents would
have supposed I was a candidate for
admission into the heavenly kingdom,
.so unreserved were the commendations.
"Not long ago I met ex-President
Taft while he was in this city. He
has a remarkable memory. Shaking
me by the hand, lie said : 'When I
finished reading the grandMloquent re
ports in your favor some years ago I
pictured to myself a man possessed
with angels' wings and fit to be the
American amhassn(lor extraordinary to
the heavenly kingdom. I supposed you
were dead at the time, for the report
read like an epitaph on a tombstone,
so remarkable were the testimonials of
your friends in your behalf.' "-San
Question of Dress.
Few of the picturesque tribal cos
tumes that depart in main essentials
from the dress found convenient by
western civilization have succeeded in
maintaining their traditional charac

to forsake a distInctive national male

sisted of a short white tunic, "bag

garments were carried away as loot

How tostake the H. C. L. out of
clothes buying for fall
C LOTHES are higher priced; all of them
good or bad. The poor ones cost about
the same as the good ones---not much differ
ence any more.
Here's some good advice; take it from us; don't
try to "beat the game," and pay the lowest
price; you will get poor quality; the clothes
won't last and your "High Cost of Clothing"
will go up several notches.
Here's the right way; get good quality; pay for
it; the wear and service you get saves for you
and reduces the H. C. L.
Hart Schaffner & Marx clothes do it;
they're made to give wear; your money's
worth; satisfaction or your money back.
