The ir.ct.nct of modesty natural to every woman is often a
?reat hindrance lo ti.e cute of womanly diseases. Women
frhrink from the personal questions bi the local physician
which seem indelicate. The thought of examination is cb
horrent to them, u:?d so they endure in silence a condition

The Panama Canal will be open
early in 1914.
This is an unofficial declaration
from the highest official sotirce.
There is ii possibility that it will be ]
completed and ready for the pas-'r
sage of ships slightly before that' t
time. The same authorities, how- r
ever, refuse to change the official j
announcement that the work will j
be completed in 1915.
The later date is used because
they do not wish to take any
chances on making good and disap?
pointing those who wish to cele?
brate the event. Barring slides of
unusual proportions, labor troubles
resulting in strikes or other great
unforseen obstacles, there is no rea?
son to doubt that the waterway
will be open at the earlier date.
At the rate of progress in the
past, ordinary delays, such as
floods, excessive rains, or difficulty
in getting materials, can be easily
overcome, so that ships can pass
through the canal in 1914.
One term in the Presidency is
enough for the country, and the
country generally recognizes this,
but does not see just how to keep
Presidencies down to that figure.
The authors of the Constitution
were very wise men. and they did'<
not anticipate the relations be?
tween Presidential patronage and a
second term.
One term is enough for the in?
cumbent. The satisfaction of at?
taining the most exalted position in
the country is intelligible enough,
but four years will give a man
enough of the distinction, and
more than enough of the cares, of
office. Most Presidents have a
sense of responsibility rather than
a sense of power, and the sense of
responsibility grows heavy. Mr.'
Roosevelt never had a sense of re?
sponsibility, but only a sense of
power, and a keen delight in using
power, but he is quite unlike any
other man who ever filled the of?
fice. Nine men out of ten would
be glad to go out of office at the
close of one term if it had not come
to be a reflection upon the Presi?
dent not to give him a re-nomina?
tion. The precedent established
by Washington has come to be re?
garded as a rule, and the refusal of
a third nomination is not deemed a
reflection, but a refusal of a second
nomination is so regarded.
No man can exercise the Presi?
dential powers for a first term with
the possibility of the second with?
out using them to secure a second
term, partly for the sake of secur?
ing the customary expression of ap?
proval, but mainly because the
men he has appointed to office
want another term and do all in
their power to make the President
feel that he must have it and the
party feel that it must give it to
It doesn't matter whether Mr.
Taft was in earnest or joking when
he declared that one term was
enough for him. Probably every
president has felt so after one year
in office, and after three years in
office Mr. Taft will be as receptive
of the renomination as any of his
predecessors. The men whom he
has appointed to office and who
want to retain their jobs will see to
that. Ex.

Preliminary hearings before a
knited States commissioner for the d
inc persons arrested as a result of n
ie investigation by the Depart
lent of Justice into the alleged
:welry bankrupt frauds were set
?r April 29th. The frauds upon e
arious merchants throughout the
'nited States .ire estimated at from
500,000 to $2,000,000. Govem

ot only violated the bankruptcy
iws, but prosecution also might '

The method of operation of the

ime other point for the purpose of ^
aving a public sale. The sale was a
uly advertised to take place at a j
iven date.
"In the meantime the building .
i which the jewelry was pretended
