criminal procedure It is almost the only evidence that is obtalnableJu mill great crimes anil It Is the best and most reliable I have wit nessed many great trials for murder but do not remember one where there was an eyewitness to the deed How is it possible then to bring home the charge to the culprit unless you rely on circumstantial evidence- Circumstantial evidence Is the evi dence of circumstances facts that speak for themselves and that cannot be contradicted Circumstances have no motive to deceive while human tes timony Is too often the product of ev ery kind of motive Fluli Tlint Change Color Anglers have noticed that fish of the same species caught In the same stream often differ completely In color and take protective hues that match the prevailing local coloring of their homes Ilerr Otto Gotthllf found by a course of experiments with turbots that this faculty of changing color in accordance with the surroundings is primarily due to the action of light upon the optic nerve The light does not act directly upon the eye but Is reflected froth such substances as are around and affects the coloring cells thapugh the nerve centers of the lisp Proof of this was obtained by severing the optic nerve of the turbot when It was found that It no longer possessed the power of changing color Pear sons The MUiiNo of Quite Quite strictly menus completely and is

see in tho average American citizen tho development df tho two sets of qualities which wo can roughly indicuto as SWEETNESS und STRENGTH the qualities on the ono hand which make tho man able to hold his own and those which on the other make him jealous for the rights of others just as much as for his own rights Contrary to tho standard of the small boy theso two qualities sweetness and strength belong together Neither is possible in largo pleasure without the otherA ptrcngth uncontrolled by calm gentleness and an ardent sense of justice is not stiongth at all A person merely goodnatured and inoffensive has not a genuine sweetness of nature It requires strength to vivo active force to good will and kindli ness The bravest are the temlerest The loving ure the daring There cannot be too

Parkers fiteuds that the Indl anii delegation would be solid for Parker How much money was used in solidifying the HoosIer delegation is 01 little consequence now but Thomas Taggart the Democratic boss of Indiana secured 10000 for the support of His newspaper the Indian spoils Sentinel Though this ante convention cam paigu was conducted with much se creov the average Democrat felt that Parker sentiment was not genuine Upon this point no donot exists Par ker sentiment wao manufactured by a machine like ordinary footwear or sausages II I Want 50000 Said Taggart- I want 50000 or my paper the Indianapolis Sentinel will go into bankruptcy said Thomas Tnggart at a meeting of the Executive Com mittee of the Democratic National Committee held in this city a few days after he had been elected Chair man of the latter body TnjHfarfs demand for no ooo was met half way so that in the campaign he received 35 OKI exclusive of the money furnished to pay his hotAIl bills and to which reference has been ioad exclusive also of the money tarnished to him for election expenses in Indiana Chairman Only In Name Taggarts election was the first body blow received by the Democracy and it was felt wherever time chances of the party Rare doubtful Thous I ands perhans millions of Democrats asked Why did the committee elect him V This qnextiou became more insistent when oven the Democratic press spread broadcast stories of die sensions in the National Committee Some of these stories contained details which made it plain to all who rend them that Taggart was treated by his associates with contumely nnd that he was Chairman only in name Urey Known AsThe Limit The committee which elected T Taggart as its Chairman chose Drey Voodson for its Secretary His qualifi cations for the place were that he hailed from Owensboro Ky was the editor of a country newspaper and wore his hack hair after the feminine fashion of the net period It is but fair to add that Mr Woodson did not wear a net as his hair stood out like the butt end of a Japanese cedar When Judge Parker secured quai ters at the Hotel Seville Mr Woodson was for a time a frequent caller His advances were received with polite
