A majority of Congress favors such a change, i but the Constitution of the Uni j ted States is a very difficult docu ment to deal with. If it involved merely an extension of the term of office of the President from j March to May, the amendment ' of the Constitution would be I simple, but the Constitution con Item plates that both the legisla I tive and executive departments 1 shall be organized on the same OFFICIAL PAPER OF NAVAJO COUNTY !day The CoMtitution became nnerilfve on f.p firs- VVednesdav It is reported that HarrimanJof March) 1789.

Someone has said that Mr. Roosevelt will be just as safe in Africa as he is in Oyster Bay, but if this information should reach the ex-President, he might de flect his expedition to wild and wonly Kentucky or Tennessee. News comes that the Chinese Government is erecting a school building in San Francisco to teach the Chinese language. There are hundreds of unrelated dialects and there istheniandari nate language that the "literary class," as it is called, uses in con veying its antiquated ideas, but the educated Chinaman, as dis tingushed from the literary Chinaman, speaks English, French or German as the case may be and the sooner China puts herself "en rapport" with the age by the acquisition of the Hnglish language, the sooner she will be civilized and understood. was elected for four years, repre sentatives for two years and sen ators for six years. All terms date from and expire on the fourth day of March. To change the Presidential term and not the others, bringing in a new Congress for the last two months of the expiring administration, would throw the whole system out of whack. A bill should be enacted making the Congression al term begin in December, thus enabling a new Congress to meet soon after it is elected instead of allowing the old one to hold over for another session. This also would require an amendment to the Constitution, for while Con gress can fix the time of its own sessions, it cannot change the term tor which its members are elected. IN THE DAY OF THE AIHSHIK. How Men of That Age Will Look Back at Present Generation. We who are used to flight can hard ly realize the crawling life of men before the twentieth century. They were bound to roads and railroads. They could not ride direct to any given spot. They were confined by roads and railroads, and they were a hurried race that chafed at thvss restraints. Im agine, then, this race suddenly re lieved of such vexatious barriers, entering Into a new realm, as free as the sea, and reaching all men alike, bo that every man's farm or factory was a harbor from which he could sail as directly as the wind would let him to any spot In the world; and, bear in mind, from the It is probable that before the end of fifty years all steam rail way service will be operated by electricity. It is known now that heavier trains may be hauled at higher speed and with greater comfort and convenience to pas sengers by electricity than by steam.

MP, Woiliail's h Is Less Sensitive 7VT a Than That of j Mature Man By RAYMOND BLATHWAYT. English Eaaoylat. 3rl .-J.i.:v.-!i?1 'iwrMiKivj Mi men more sensitive than women? Of course they are! iftk I What a foolish question! It is demonstrated every day, all j over the world, and in a hundred 'different ways. And that from youth up in cither sex. Is there anything on earth, for instance, more sensitive, more delicate-minded than a well bred public-school boy of 14? Compare him, with his shy reticence, liis curious sensitiveness, his innate modesty, with u girl of the same class of life and the same age. Nor is the superior sensitiveness of man in any way a reflection on his manhood. A woman's lack of sensitiveness is due often to in nate obtuseness and phlegmatic slolidi'y of character. A man's sensitiveness is a p.irt of his finer organization, which renders bis power of perception infinitely hener and more subtle than in the c'sv of the majority of women, to whom the changes and chances of this mortal life come without mystery and depart without reflection on their part. No wonder that Mahomet declared that woman was without a soul. Let us t' ank (ml all tl e more for her charming body. At tie same time feminine s'olidily probably comes as a protection and a henefai t'on to women in the somewhat arduous role they are called rtpon to play through life. It has been well said that no man could ever go through the terrors of child-birth, and any riding-master will tell you that; women "funk" far less than' men, as a rule. That may be pari ly owing to the fact that they have les imagination, and therefore less fear of making tlomselves ridiculous. Xo man, for instance, could ever in dvlge in the vagaries of the modern suffragette. His sense of humor would preserve him from so imd'gnilicd a career, in much the same way that his inlinitely supt.r'or sense of honor renders a woman's petty meannesses incomprehensible and impossible to him. Partly beeav;e the man's mind is essentially more refined his appreciation of v.!. at is refined is far keener, immeasurably more thi'i-ate. In social distinctions, for in L.nce, a woman will frequently be ino;e i n poscd upon by a flasl y exterior than will a man, who knows intuitively when he is in the presence of a highly bred man. A woman, however well bred hi rst if. frequently ois vn'. A man's sympathy and tenderness of heart is often more easily aroused than a woman's. As a striking instance of this, Harry De Wind', the vi '!-l;novn cxplcrcr. told me once that he traveled for a thousand mil " ovtr ti c s:iwv s ppes of Siluria with a convoy of political exiles of in b se.'iis. and le frequency saw men, after hearing an air sung w!;l romimhd thin of their hr-o!'

A MOST TOUCHING APPEAL falls short of its desired effect if ad dressed to a small crowd of interested listeners. Mr. Business Man, are you wasting your ammunition on the small crowd that would trade with you anyway, or do you want to reach those who are not particularly inter ested in your business? If you do, make your appeal for trade to the largest and most intelligent audience in your commun ity, the readers of this iiaper. They have count ess wants. Your ads will be read by them, and they will become your custom ers. Try it and see.
