Pros Tafts Place In People Hearts Not Settled Session Will Tell the Tale Congress May Balk Washington D C- Dec 4 1900 The session of Congress which will begin this week promises to bo ono of tho most Interesting and important which has boon hold In ears A num ber of things combine to glvo it a significance beyond that of tho ordin ary and Ita effects aro likely to be felt for years to rome Tho Congress meets with an unusu al Hat of Important legislation in pros pect Proa TaU in his trip thru tho West outlined his desires for carrying out tho llooscvelt policies and opoko foi legislation enough to keep any Congress busy every day In tho year for several years Of course no one expects moro than a small part of thla programme to bo put thru but what docs got by the legislative bodies will bo of vast Importance if any thing doea get by Unfortunately It is not likely that any thing will go thru In tho first place tho Insurgents who mado trouble over tho tariff are back with blood In both eyes and are going to tako every possible bppor tunlty to tight Cannon They believe this loot moro Importance than any legislation and will act accordingly They will demand an inquiry into tho Parsons and other charges against Cannon and will tIght over the rules and over the appointments and over any thing elso that may happen to come handy at any time This will go a long way to prevent constructive legislation In tho socona place Cannon and his crowd do mrt want any legislation Cannon never wants anything new Ho Is tho original human hitching post the moet stationary object in tho United States If any thing Is now ho la against It And both ho and his friends have a special rea son for being against everything Just now They aro responsible for the tariff bill They arc learning rapid ly that tholr constltutenta aro Jot wholly pleased with that measure They know that nothing they can do in tho regular session will cover up that tariff record and they think that If they cnn get homo and get to electioneering for ronomlnatlon and rooloctlon they can help Home So they have just ono wIshto get lome as quickly as they decently can They want to use Congress for tho purpose ot shooting ort a lot of speech es oupposed to bo for tho purpose of Influencing Congress but really in tended to bo read by tho boys at home If those speeches are mado In ConI gress they aro printed tree and mailed rco and theroforo each Congressman has a burning desire to put his pat riotism Into words words that como moor tho franking privilege and svlll help his campaign For both of Lheso reasons Congress will not cetI down to any new legislation if ItIcan help it Tho Cannon crowd welcome any Inquiry into tho governI moot affairs or really which will keep tho main iosuo cloud edtho insurgents havo picked inICannon as tbo main Issue and so Fighting and stalling they will pro ably spend tho winter without doing inyono much of any goo JIOf almost moro Importance than the effect on legislation will bo the effect tiio Congress will have jn tho standing of Prcs Taft in tho minds of tho voters of the country Without expressing tho personal op inion of Tho Citizen It Is a fact that In tho country at largo many voters have not yot made up their minds about Mr Tart Ills attitude on the tariff bill has not given any general satisfaction and yet tho majority of voters aro willing to glvo him tho benefit of tho doubt They hellovo that ho may havo acted as ho did In order to proveat a break with Cannon and AldrIch In hopes that by keep ing on friendly terms with them ho would bo moro likely to get tho legis lation ho Is after Dut tbo valors Feel that ho has got to do something now to show what is what They think that after all tho legislation is tho really Important thing and they want him to either get It or tight So ho Is to bo put in a hard place Ho will get nothing that tho leaders can keep from him and the Insurgents with tho host intentions will bo of little help It Una been announced that raft will tako no sides as between the Insurgents and Cannon but It will bo hard for him to keep out of a fight And it will be harder yet to get any thing done And if ho falls to get anything ho will bavo to mako it Continued on fourth pille tJtJ Ian different from animals in just two hlt1g8he has a eon nud the power to think The man who does not use his bruins i giving tip half his manhood Food for thought is necessary for a real inuu nud it must come from some where outside reading of Nome kind Tho newspaper is the best agency discovered by modern progress to give this right alougu ujC TAFTS FIRST MESSAGE The first message of Fres William II Taft to Congress is one fully worthy of the head of our nation of the body to which it is sent and of tho American people Calm broad and judicial in tone pro gressive and forceful it forms a secure and stale basis on which may be erected legislation valuable and necessary to us The most striking thing on lirst reading of the message is of course tho difference in tone between it and the messages which we have been in the habit of reading for the last few years Fres Taft is a judge rather than a reformer and his message shows it All his recommendations are thoroughly sound tind conservative and there is nothing in this document to frighten investors or anyone else The most notable feature of the message is perhaps its recom mendation of economy Practical suggestions for reducing tho ex penditures of the government are given and if followed will produce a reform greatly needed after tho largo extravagance of the last few yearn We can only hope they will bo fol lowed Next in importance comes the recommendation for tho reforms campaignMrpublicity laws and similar legislation thus showing his intention of carrying out fully the preelection promises nnd pledges of the party Of importance also are two or three recommendations not covered by such pledges Improvement in the diplomatic service is asked prosecution of the customs grafters promised and it is recom mended that the monthly magazines and other periodicals which cause so large n deficit in the postal service should be made to pay their fare share of the cost of handling their matter All these recommendations are progressive and give every in dication that Mr TaU intends to be as hRS been fully expected n good and useful president paying full attention to the details of bin duties and watching carefully after the interests of the people ft proves that ho will be a good executive presldeuttgrasping wealth nnd the general good has been recently coming to an acute stage aud thanks to the Roosevelt policies has reached a point where no lasting compromise is possible The contol of great corporations tho reform of the currency system and tile saving of public property of the government from the enterprising exploiters who see in it a means to private wealth at the expense of the rest of usihelle things have come to be burning issues And it is not able that on these issues the message is silent All these subjects are specifically by the President reserved for future discussion And it is by his stand on these questions that Mr Taftn place in history and in the hearts of the American people will eventually be determined lie as yet postpones taking that place AH has been shone in our recent Washington letters the American people are withholding judgment on Pres Taft waiting for hint to do something toward the solutkm of tho problems And not until he does do something will his place be established There will be those who will at once declare that by taking no stand Pres Taft is playing into the hands of the interest Wo do not believe it nnd wo do believe that when the time comes for him to declare himself ho will bo found in the right place There is noth ing to be gained by hurry at this time and much to be lost Pres Taft is waiting nnd the people are willing that he should wait They have supreme confidence in both his intentions and his judg ment aud will support him steadily Assured that when the time is rii hf will fully vindicate their trust in him LETTER FROM PRES FROST I

that in the ovlls and dlfllcltlcs which Paul know were con fronting Timothy wo may see ene- mIes which Paul had been compelled to meet And In the weapons and methods of warfare Paul charged Timothy to use we see tho means by which Paul gained the victory Tho Three Kinds of Enemies 1 Paul like other men had to fight ene mica within himself When we see a good man wo are apt to think that he has natural qualities of goodness or favoring circumstances that make it easy for him to be good 2 Paul had many outward enemies and dlfllcultlcs with which to contend Many of them were brought before us In Lesson VIII where we studied his account of his life His wrestling was against tho principalities against the powers against the world rulers of this darkness against the spiritual hosts of wickedness 3 In the lesson today we find a series of dangers and enemies within tho company of disciples which must be overcome 3 For the time will come when they will not endure the sound healthful

to encourage and help And tho Lord Jesus Christ Ills Master and Teacher and Friend Who shall judge tho quick tho living and the dead This was more than tho consciousness that he himself must be judged acordlng to what ho was and what he did but it added the even stronger motive that the fate of those to whom he preached depended on his faithfulnessThe again of Christ At his appearing and his kingdom Christs glorious second coming possible at any time should spur Timothy to be a faithful steward and ho should do his work well because It would help to establish Christs rule on earth his

Is making a good record at Harvard university where he is tho youngest student ever enrolled He Is keeping well up with tho older students and excels many of them according to his professors This boy is not a freak nor a phe nomenon He is the result of an ex poriment by which his father Prof William James sidus Borus Sidus of Brookline Mass has sought to prove some of his theories Prof Sidus Is a psychologist That Is he Is a student and an expert on the human mind Sidus had a theory of latent energy of the mind The father then each day sought not to teach the child onytblng but to lead him to discover for himself some fact and the relation of that fact to other facts The first course gave the child a sturdy body and made him a lover of outdoors and an expert In all childish games The second course kept him a baby and stimulated his imagine tion The third gave him facility In handling that most wonderful of all toolst the reasoning brain Never in his life has he been told in answer to a question that he wouldnt understand Never has ho been told a thing Is true becauso father says so Never has he been given a false or slovenly answer In reply to his childish questions Each time the little mind reached outwhether t6 ask How big Is the sun 7 or Why does tho kitty have a tall 7 a careful truthful answer has been given Sid us found that tho foolish questions which hIs boy asked were the same that all children asked but ho saw in them the grop- Ing of an awakened mind and sought to give them direction purpose and relationThe result was that the child not being held down to the alphabet learning to count ten nail a few vague and unrelated facts about the things he saw about him was as easily interested in history as he was In Mother Goose He didnt learn to count ten but be learned by playing dominoes tho relation of numbers not figures and his mind was permitted to discover for itself that twice two make four They found that a simple book on chemistry was as Interesting to the child as was Alice In Wonderland Not only as interesting but It proved as easily understood by him There are a lot of things which we think a child Is too young to under stand So we wont explain them The child however is as interested in a locomotive as he is in a cat and what Interests him he can under stand You dont believe It do you FRIEND OF THE CHILDREN Mrs Frederick Schoff

congress of the political social and gatherInIII propriation for cur participation If this be granted It Is my purpose to appoint a distinguished and representative dele gallon qualified fittingly to represent this country and to deal with the problems of Intercontinental Interest which will there be discussed lipidfromAires a great International agricultural exhibition In which the United States has been Invited to participate Considering the rapid growth of the trade of the Uni ted States with the Argentine Republic and the cordial relations existing between the two nations together with the fact that It provides an opportunity to show deference to a sister republic on the oc casion of the celebration of Its nation al Independence the proper departments of this government are taking steps to apt prise the Interests concerned of the op portunity afforded by this exhibition In which appropriate participation by this country Is so desirable The designation of an official representative Is also receiv ing consideration governmentciples and remains unchanged With the j hanged circumstances of the United States and of the republics to the south of us most of which have great natural resources stable government and pro gressive Ideals the apprehension which gave rise to the Monroe doctrine may be said to have nearly disappeared and nei her doctrine as it exists nor any other doctrine of American policy should perpetuation rApe of just obligations or the Insidious allegation of dominating ambitions on the part of the United States Beside the fundamental doctrines of our PanAmerican policy there have grown up a realization of political Interests community of Institutions and Ideals and blldswillon and Increased facilities such as the great bank soon to be established In Lat- In Amerlra supply the means for build Ing up the colossal Intercontinental commerce of the future My meeting with President Dlax and the greeting exchanged on both American and Mexican soil served I hope to signalize the close and cordial relations which so well bind together this republic and the greet republic Immediately to the south between which there Is so vast a network of material Interests- I am happy to say that all but one of the cases which for so long vexed our Jlettlld under the enlightened regime now direct ing the government of Venezuela provi sion has been made for arbitration of the remaining case before The Hague trl hunal Since the Washington conventions of 1907 were communicated to the govern ment of the United States as a consult- Ing and advisory party this government uponbythe five Central American republics to exert Itself for the maintenance of the conventions Nearly every complaint has been against the Zelaya government of Nicaragua which has kept Central Amer ica In constanttension and turmoil The responds made to the representations of Central American republics as due from the United States on account of Its rela tion to the Washington conventions have been at all times conservative and have avoided so far as posalble any semblance of Interference although It Is very appar geographIcvery substantial American Interests in Central America give to the United States a special position In the zone of these republics and the Caribbean sea I need not rehearse here the patient efforts of this government to promote peace and welfare among these repub apprecIatedbyto their true Interests It would be no less unnecessary to rehearse here the tale of unspeakable barbarities and- ppression alleged to have been commit Recentlytwoder of President Zelaya himself They were officers in the organized forces of revolution which was In control of I about half of the republic and as such according to the modern enlightened practice of civilized nations they were entitled to be dealt with as prisoners of war IsIdiplomatic relations with tho Zelaya gOV ernment for reasons made public In a communication to the forme Nicaragua charge daffaires and Is Intending to take such future steps as may be found most consistent with Its dignity Its duty to American Interests and Its moral obllga tlons to Central America and t civilization Department of State II earnestly recommend to the favor consideration of the congress the es timates submitted by the department of state and most especially the legisla Lion suggested In the secrtary of states letter of this date whereby It will bo possible to develop and make permanent the reorganization of the department upon modern lines In a manner to make It a thoroughly efficient Instrument In the furtherance of our foreign trade and of American Interests abroad The plan to have divisions of LatinAmerican and FarEastern affairs ahd to Institute s certain specialization In business with Europe and the near east will at once commend itself These politicogeograph ical divisions and the detail from the diplomatic or consular service to the department of a number of men who bring to the study of complicated problems In different parts of the world practical knowledge recently gained on the spot clearly Is of the greatest ad vantage to the secretary of state In foreseeing conditions likely to arise and In conducting the great variety of correspondence and negotiation It should be remembered that such facilities exist In the foreign offices of all the leading com mercial nations and that to deny them to the secretary of state would be to place this government at a great disadvantage In the rivalry of commercial competitionThe service has been Im proved under the law of April 6 1906 and the executive order of June 27 1906 and I commend to your consideration the question of embodying in a statute the principles of the present executive order upon which the eftlclcncy of our consular service Is wholly dependent Expenditures and Revenues Perhaps the most Important question presented to this administration Is that of economy In expenditures and sum ciency of revenue The deficit of the last fiscal year and the certain deficit of the current year prompted congress to throw a greater responsibility on tho executive and tho secretary of treasury than had heretofore been theI clared by statute This Imposes upon the secretary of the treasury the duty of assembling all the estimates of the executive departments bureaus and offices of the expenditures necessary In the ensuing fiscal year and of making an estimate of the reve nun of the government for the same period nnd If a probable deficit is thus shown It Is made tho duty of the presi dent to recommend the method by which such deficit can be met The report of the secretary shows that the ordinary expenditures for the current fiscal year ending June 30 1910 will exceed the estimated receipts by 134075620 If to this deficit Is added the sum to be disbursed for the Pan ama Canal amounting to tI9000000 and 11000000 to bo paid on the public debt the deficit of ordinary receipts and expenditures will be Increased to a total deficit of S7307G620 This def loll the secretary proposes to meet by the proceeds of bonds Issued to pay the cost of constructing the Panama Canal I approve this proposal In order to avoid a deficit for the ensuing fiscal year I directed the heads of departments In the prepara tlon of their estimates to make them as low as possible consistent with Im perative governmental necessity Civil Pensions I am aware that there Is a strong feeling In both houses of congress nnd possibly In the country against the establishment of civil pensions and that this has naturally grown out of the heavy burden of military pensions which It has always been the policy of our government to assume but I am strongly convinced that no other practical solution of the difficulties presented by the superannuation of civil servants can be found than that of a system of civil pensions Frauds In the Collection of Customs I regret to refer to the fact of the I discovery of extensive frauds In the collection of the customs revenue At New York city In which a number of the subordinate employes In the weigh ing and other departments were directly concerned and In which the beneficiaries were the American Sugar Refining Company and others The frauds consisted In the payment of duty on underweights of sugar Tho government has recovered from the American Sugar Refining Company all that It Is shown to have been defraud ed of The sum was received In full of the amount due which might have been recovered by civil suit against the beneficiary of the fraud but there was an express reservation In the con tract of settlement by which the settle ment should not Interfere with or pre vent the criminal prosecution of every one who was found to be subject to the same Criminal prosecutions are now proceeding against a number of the government officers The treasury de partment and the department of jus tice are exerting every effort to dis cover all the wrongdoers Including the officers and employes of the companies who may have been privy to the fraud It would seem to me that an Investigation of the frauds by con gress at present pending the probing by the treasury department and the department of justice as proposed might by giving Immunity and other wise prove an embarrassment In secur ing conviction of the guilty parties The Tariff Act Two features of the new tariff act call for special reference By virtue of the clause known as the maximum and minimum clause It Is the duty of the executive to consider the laws and practices of other countries with reference to the Importation Into those countries of the products and mer chandise of the United States and If practices against the United States the mini mum duties provided In tho bill ore to go Into force Unless the president makes such a finding the maxi mum duties provided in the bill that Is an Increase of 25 per cent ad valo rem over the minimum duties are to expressedthatImposed on the executive Is likely to expresstheneed be anticipated The discretion granted to the execu discrimInatory againstthesary that ho shall find on the part orI discriminationslaagainst the trade of the United States but that the discriminations found shall be undue that Is without good and fair reason I conceive that thisIpower was reposed In the president with the hope that the maximum du casebut enable the president and the state de I partment through friendly negotiation to secure the elimination from the laws and the practice under them of any foreign country of that which Is un duly discriminatory No one Is seek Ing a tariff war or a condition In which the spirit of retaliation shall bs aroused NavyfThefleet from morgefficientwas a noteworthy event of Interest alike to our citizens and the naval authorities of the world Besides the beneficial and farreaching street on our personal and diplomatic relations In the countries which the fleet visited the marked success of the ships In steaming around the world In all weathers In schedule time has Increased respect for our navy and has added to our national prestige Injunctions Without Notice Tho platform of the successful party In the last election contained the following The Republican party will uphold at all times the authority and Integrity ot the courts state and federal and will ever Insist that their powers to enforce their process and protect life liberty and property shall be preserved Inviolate We believe however that the rules of procedure In the federal courts with re spect to the Issuance of the writ of In junction should be more accurately de fined by statute and that no Injunction or temporary restraining order should be Issued without notice except whore Ir reparable Injury would result from delay In which case a speedy hearing there after should be granted- I recommend that In compliance with the promise thus made appropriate legls latlon be adopted The ends of justice will best be met and the chief cause of complaint against Illconsidered Injunc lone without notice will be removed by the enactment of a statute forbidding hereafter the Issuing of any Injunction or restraining order whether temporaryI or permanent by any without previous notice and a reasonable opportunity to be heard on behalf of parties to be enjoined unless It shall theI pear to the satisfaction of the court that the delay necessary to give such notice and hearing would result In Irreparable Injury to the complainant and unless also the court shall from the evidence make a written finding which shall be spread upon the court minutes that Immediate and Irreparable Injury Is likely to ensue to the complainant and shall define the Injury state why It Is Irreparable and shall also Indorse on the order Issued the date and the hour of the Issuance of the order Moreover every such Injunction or restraining order Issued without pre vious notice and opportunity by the defendant to be heard should by force of the statute to expire and be of no effect therejofrlod which the court may fix unless within the Injunction or order Is extended or renewed after previous notice and opportunity to be heardiSecond Claas Mall MatteriThe deficit every year post office department Is largely caused by the low rate of postage of one cent a pound charged on secondclass mall matter which Includes not only newspapers but magazines and miscellaneous periodical The actual loss growing out of the transmission of this secondclass mall matter at one cent a pound amounts to about JflSOCOCOO n year The average cost of the transportation of this matter Is more than nine cents a pound It appears that the average distance ov er which newspapers are delivered to their customers Is 291 miles while the average haul of magazines Is lOll and of miscellaneous periodicals 110 miles Thus the average haul of the magazine Is three and onehalf times and that of the miscellaneous periodical nearly four times the haul of the dally newspaper yet all of them pay the same postage rate of one cent a pound The statistics of 1907 show that secondclass mall matter con stituted a91 per cent of the weight ot nil the mall and yielded only B1J per centIof the revenueIThe ant show the payment by the government of an enormous subsidy to the newspapers magazines and periodicals and congress may well consider whether radical steps should not be taken to reduce the deficit bythlaof transportation and the compensation exacted therefor amountingby Imposing upon magazines and perl odlcals a higher rate of postage They are much heavier than newspapers and contain a much higher proportion of advertising to reading matter and the aver age distance of their Is three and a half times as Postal Savings greatIThe second subject worthy of mention In the postofllce department Is the real necessity and entire practicability of es declaredIn tablishing postal savings banks The suc though the proposition finds opponents In many parts of the country I am con vinced that the people desire such banks and am sure that when the banks are furnished they

WARFARE Animal Pests Were at One Time Employed to Destroy Powder Mag azines The presence of cats on the French war office staff writes a correspon dent might have led to trouble in the old days when it is quite possible t that a detachment of rats formed part of the army An old military dictionary tells us that rats were sometimes used in war for the pur pose of firing powder magazines by means of lighted matches tied to their tails We cannot offhand recall any historical instance of this but pre sumably it did occur seeing that Marshal Vauban laid down special rules for counteracting it Anyhow the dodge is as old as Samson who you may recall used foxes In a similar way for a somewhat similar purpose As to that royal rat catcher we may add that he had a special official livery According to Pennants Brit ish Zoology it consisted of a scarlet costume embroidered with yellow worsted in which were figures of mice destroying wheat sheaves By the way rats were not tho only ani mals honored with a special catcher Leicester for Instance used to pay a yearly salary of 41 11s Cd to its municipal mole catcher London Chronicle A Relic of English Rule That many of the things we

Chronicle of London Besides the marrow pie alluded to in Bleak House which is said to have been a mixture of bread pounded al monde cream eggs lemon peel sugar nutmeg and marrow one can recall many other delicacies that have prac tically vanished from the Londoners bill of fare Take for instance the once popular a la mode beet In Dick ens time shops for its sale were dot ted all over London

Rodriguez the Nicaraguan charge daffalres at Wash ington received his passports from the stato department Wednesday and the United States has taken charge of Nicaragua Marines have been landed and the regular troops will follow To show its Intenso anger at the conduct of President Zelaya tho mes sago notifying Rodriguez of tho sever ance of diplomatic relations is bitter with denunciation of a ruler that has seldom been equaled in the history of civilized nations The personal feeling against Zelaya in tho state department is astonishing to those who contemplate that department as a grave and judicial and diplomatic branch of the government It Is not less than tho feeling that for mer Secretary Root had in the case of Castro president of Venezuela when Mr Root declared that he would have no further negotiations with Cas tro as his word was not worth the cablo toll that brought It Secretary Knox has had the same feeling toward Zelaya The president of Nicaragua has not only been a dis turbing element in Central American affairs but ho has been so unfaithful in the ordinary affairs of state in the exchange of proposals and promises that Secretary Knox has become disgusted In this disgust the presi dent of the United States shares and it was for that reason that Mr Knox was told by Mr Taft to run tho af fair as he chose and It was eliminated as a subject for cabinet discussion Zelayas regime is characterized in Secretary Knoxs note as a blot upon the history of Nicaragua and he is charged not only with the unjustifi able killing of Americans but with ex ercising a baleful influence upon Hon duras discrediting Costa Rica Guate mala and Salvador keeping Central America in a constant turmoil throt tling the press and public opinion and Imprisoning patriots This

revolutionists and government responsible for tho protection of American life and property With the Vicksburg cleared for ac tion in tho harbor of Corinto and Its guns trained upon the town and the fact established that an American landing force is camped in the plaza of Blueflelds the state and navy departments worked in harmony in the endeavor to place Nicaragua under the absolute control of an armed forco at tho earliest possible moment As a result tho cruiser Prairie steamed away from Philadelphia with 700 marines aboard bound for Corin to via Colon and Panama and the cruiser Albany and tho gunboat York town are rushing from Magdalena bay to the same destination under Impera tlvo orders Rear Admiral W W Kimball was hurried to Philadelphia to catch the Prairie before she left He will be in command of the naval forces at Nicaragua Orders were issued to navy yards along tho Atlantic and Pacific coasts to get their detachments of marines in readiness to respond to a hurry call which may be Issued at any moment The climax to the situation came when the president summoned his cabinet in special session to discuss the Nicaraguan situation This par ticularly related to the advisability of the president sending a special mes sage to congress asking for permis slon for tho executive to go forward uninterruptedly in the completion of its plan for the protection of American life and property and the establishment of a stable government in Nicaragua as well as the secur- Ing of permanent peace in Central America GROSSCUP TO LEAVE G 0 P Federal Judge Criticises Taft and

Knowledge of Subject How ever Strikingly Lacking Among Scientists and Medical Profession By MaJ Charles 13 Woodruff United States Army Tho sclenco of modlclno has no blot more disgraceful than that mado by the absurdly opposing opinions ns to the offsets of alcohol Absolutely nothing is known as to tho ultimate results of small doses yet the most positive statements are made More over tho laboratory experiments of tho last decade kayo shown that many of tho old Ideas an to tho ultimate ef fects of largo dosoa frequently taken are tho opposite of the truth Har dening of the arteries and liver for instance was onco believed to bo tho result of excessive Indulgence but we now know from actual experiment that this Is not so Such conditions are found post mortem In abstainers Indeed alcoholics seem actually less liable to hardening of the arteries ns though tho drug were a preventive by lessening high arterial pressure which Is the main cause of tho disease Tho frightful results of overindulgence have led to all sorts of misstatements and in no respects are they moro absurd than In the opinions as to tho cnuHo of imbecility and insan ity Statistical tattles by tho hundred have been published showing that alcoholism existed In tbo parents of a largo proportion of these weaklings and we jumped to tho conclusion that the alcohol was tho cause though In runny cases tho alcoholism arose after the birth of tho offspring Such tables aro of little value for We are more justified In concluding that tho wearing of shoos Is tho cause of In sanity as 100 per cent of tho parents wore shoos It Is now known that alcoholism Is often n result of tho nervous conditions It was formerly believed to cause The discussion of the food value of alcohol Is a tempest In n teapot and of no practical value Plant gists havo long presented evidence that alcohol Is one of tho many stages of tho oxidation of sugar by living cells and there Is some evidence that It Is tho only form of carbon food which tho cell an utilize There is a growing mass of evidence that tho same processes occur In animals and that tho starches of our food are first digested to tho form of sugar and then fermented to alcohol by enzymes made by tho cells If tho enzymes are defective the sugar causes tho condition called diabetes Analyses of healthy tissue invariably show traces of alcohol even in animals which have never taken a drop The temperance fanatic who delivers frantic speeches against alcohol Is thus saturated with It all tho time just like ordinary mortals- It Is probable that alcohol may be tho only way our starch food can be used that Is It may bo tho only carbohydrate our cells can burn up Hut that doiii not mean that wo can take alcohol as a food In lieu of starch and sugar Though it is produced constantly throughout tho body it Is In such mlnuto quantities and so highly dilut ed as to have no poisonous effect whatever In order to take the same quantity Into our system In like duo Lion wo would bo constantly Imbibing and it would require many quarts of wator Tho alcoholic beverages usually taken are so strong that tho tie sues cannot dispose of more than an ounce and a half or BO of absolute al cohol tho excess being excreted and In the process it exercises a poisonous effect proportionate to Its amount The consensus of tho best opinion omitting tho fanatics of course Is to the affect that In those minimum amounts it In a food but ns a gener a1lontertheless in tho case of Invalids un able to digest tho generous slice of broad some alcohol is n very vital matter In like manner tho poisonous ef fects of large doses have been ills gracefully misinterpreted Laboratory experiments for instance show that alcoholized animals loso tholr natural

follow ing statement to tho poolers ot the 1906 and 1907 crops of tobacco In view of tho fact that there are suits now pending in tho federal and tato courts which tend to hamper us in carrying out the principles of pooling lour tobacco for profitable prices not withstanding wo have increased the price by reason at the 1906 and 1907 pools at least 100 per cent and that if said suits now ponding against tho Burley Tobacco society are successful they will have a tendency to destroy our movement In which wo have thus far been eminently successful I wish to make this request I wish to plead with
