The troltey car, the automobile and thi) train have made transportation so easy that people seldom walk arv more. They ride to business, to the theatre, the store, the resort, from the country into town, from one street to another, until walking has become al? most a lost art. In a generation or two more we will forget how to use our legs. Man is by nature a walk? ing animal. He was never made to sit still and be swiftly moved from place to place. And he is beginning to show the results of failure to use the mptor muscles. He is becoming too fat and pudgy, and no small por? tion of his ill health might be traced to this failure to develop his muscles and use his physical faculties. Edward Payson Weston at 70 years of age is as hale and hearty as the average well-preserved man of 50. He has just succeeded in walking clear across the continent, from New York to San Francisco. Mr. Weston made this trip of 3.S95 miles in just 105 days and 5 hours. A consider? able portion of the journey was made in weather that was trying to the strongest men, and once he himself was overcome by the Intense heat. Mr. Weston has the satisfaction of having achieved a feat that seems almost impossible in a man of his ad? vanced years, and he has had the sat? isfaction of seeing the country more thoroughly than Is possible to the traveler who rushes through on a train or scurries from town to town in a motor car. Doubtless he owes his vigorous health largely to his ha blt 01 walking. It is one of the best forms of exercise, exhilarating but not violent. It is one form of amuse? ment that is open to everybody, rich and poor alike. City people seldom gel enough exercise out of doors, and the revival of the art of walking would do them a world of good Glad to Greet Him.

Washington, July 21.?It would seem from expressions here today that the tariff bill is all up in the air, that the conferees are all split to pieces, that the president is all balled up, and that the America! people are practically unanimous in the belief that they have been betrayed. Pity about the American people, but they have themselves to blame. They elected a Republican president and a Republican programme. Now, when their chosen leaders are carry? ing out that programme to the letter, the people are raiting Cain about it. Bui keep your shirt on. I You will probably have to pay a I higher price for another, but the pow I ers here seem Inclined to hang them I selves. J "I'm a business man, and I am do I ing all I can to save the Republican I party," one of the most prominont I and capable of the mercantile men I down here from New York, urging I the Republican conferees to cut down. I the duties and trying :o scare tha I president into vetoeing the bill, said I to me today. This man was one of I the big muck-a-mucks In the great I Taft and Sherman parade in New I York, Just prior to the election last I November. In reading the report ot the doings I of the "conference" on Halt tariff bill, I just bear one thing in mind: The I "conference" has never yet had a I meeting. Only the Republican niem I bers have been meeting and the Re I publicans have been doing all f the I scrapping among themselves. The I Democrats just loaf around and enjoy I it all. j Poor Mr. Taft?he doesn't know I what to do. The general impression I is that whatever comes out of confer I ence he is going to sign, but he seema I scared half to death by the clamor I being made that he will catch it from I all sides when he does.?T^e State.
