for FightsPresidents Message Has Little Effect Members Working for RooloctlonWaltlng to Hear from Taft Washington D C December 11 1909 As Is usually the case during tho first weeks of a session of Congress most of tho work Is being done not In the great tattle where the two houses sit but in tile commltteo rooms the lobbies and oven at thn hotels In fact whorecvcr Congressmen meet and loaf Thoro tho plans for tho session are being talked over and thero the news of tho day Is to bo sought And Incidentally a great deal of tho most Important work is being done In tho Speakers room where Cannon and his satraps meet and where they de cldo along what lines they will fight and on what linos the demands of tho people havo become too strong to be longer resisted So far tho Presidents messago has still formed tho basis of discussion It Is only talc to say that thero has been a general disappointment with the message It is good and all tho things it advocates aro pretty goner ally recognized as being good but that is not enough In almost all resp eets tho message deals with what aro known as administrative reforms and while these things are very Important they do not possess tho popular Interest that tho moral social and economic reforms which havo been stirring the country for tho last ten years do On those latter questions tho message Is silent and It Is on thoso that the real fights of tho session will como Tho Progressives aro sorry that Taft has not yet seen his way clear to take up the fight along these linos tho Reactionaries want to know Just where Taft will stand when It comes to a show down Both sides are waiting There Is ono point In tho message however witch has been received as- a call to battle That Is tho recommendation for Postal Savings Banks Cannon and Aldrich ore again em The Insurgents are for em and as the linos of battle aro drawn It Is plain that Cannon et al will not ba able on this point to muster anything Ilka the strength that they had on tho tariff It Is not yet sure just who will come out ahead but It is sign flcant that tho opponents of the men sure are not making an open tight against itthey are simply working for delay This would mako It seem that they believe the majority will vote against them on tho showdown Tho Insurgents havo strengthen ed themselves a good deal by their determination to stand squarely by tho president on this proposition They havo Cannon on tho run n 11I In this case have tho strength of party regularity behind them It IsI but the first inure In the fight which they plan to put up thruout tho session and there Is a good deal of con fidence hero that long before the daIof adjournment comes Cannon w1llI bo forced to announce that ho will not be n candidate to succeed himselfIOno other point on which the Presidents messago gives a signal for a tight Is on the matter of tho tariff commission created under tho Aldrich Tariff law It was tho Intention of the framers of tho tariff law to make this commission so helpless that It would not accomplish tho purI poso for which Taft intended It Ho wanted a body of experts who would determine tho facts which would mak posslblo a scientific tariff according to tho Republican platform that is ho wanted some one to find out exactly what is tho dlfferneco between tho cost of producing any given article at porno or abroad The standpat tore did not want any such thing They prefer to havo matters loft ta they have been with a chanco for tile man with tho Insldo influence to get moro than his share of tho benefits of tho tariff So they provided or thought they did that the commission which Taft Insisted on tholr creating should only have power to advise the President as to whether or not foreign nations aro practicing un duo discrimination aganst us That would not hurt any grafter But Mr Tuft looked over tho law and decided and tho AttorneyGeneral backs him up In It that tho law Is broad enough to allow him to set the commission at work finding out the facts ho wants Ho still claims that tho now law Is tho best yet but he believes that a much better ono can be made when tho facts are found out So rather than start an agitation which will call for a revision of the tariff under tho old unscientific con I = r iy VTliero uro over a billion and a half people on earthando- ver Hix hundred million white people They are nilat work all trying to make a good living all developing good ideas The wise man Is the one who sees that there is H good chance to learn something from all of them and taken the best possible way of finding out what is goiugonin other words he subscribes for a newspaper VjMf THE PROTECTION OF WISDOM History tells us that in the old days before the coming of Christ tho heathen hud invented for themselves not ono god but a lot of gods one for each good or bad quality that they saw in themselves One of their goddesses for instance was Athena the goddess of Wisdom She was supposed to take care of all the wise people and to give wisdom to some people and to see to it that there was not too byfoolssuch like But she was safe because she had a great shield such as warriors carried and it was such a fine shield that none of their shots or arrows could get past It to hurt her That shield was called the Palladium and it is famous In history because it was the best shield ever heard of Now the American people have a possession as precious as wisdom is and it is H possession that is always in danger of being attacked and if it were possible it would be destroyed That possession is our liberty And it is attacked by greed and selfishness and the thingInAnd the American people hnvo a Palladium which is the best ever devised by menit is called Freedom of the press Tho poor people have to defend themselveo but the newspaper or tho press is their shield for it is all the time turning aside the weapons of the evil by warning the people And it works perfectly so long as it does not get into the control of the wrong side Then it lies and it leaves the people more or less unprotected Every good citizen will read tho newspaper and watch that he learns from it all the attacks that are being made on his liberty And he will watch too and sue that it is a true paper ho rends and not one that tits got into the hands of people who would have some thing to gain if part of his liberty could be takeh away And he will rend his paper carefully and carefully choose what paper he willread Are you doing this dltlons ho Is gqlng after tho inform ation which will make greater jus tice not only possible but certain Ho therefore asks Congress for an appropriation which will enable the Commission to do this work Will Congress give It Not It Al drich Cannon Co can help It They dont want any scientific revision Whllo some of the rest of tho people aro still cussing Taft for his trlcndll noes with Aldrich and Cannon those gentlemen realize that his move t timid out the tariff facts Is about tbo hardest blow ho could deal them and they Aro fighting It hard Maybe when tho tuna Is over the people will haVo found out tho same thing In this matter too Taft will be on the side of the Insurgents and so again those fighters are likely to get tho best of It But moro Important than anythin- else just now Is tho fact that af ter all the thing that is worryin- Congress Is not Taft but reelection Tho message is interesting but very little will bo dono about it and what is dono will bo with a view to roelec tlon and tho Fall campaigns rather than because Taft wants it or because it ought to bo Congress Is in session for the purpose of doing all it can to reelect Itself and all other considerations will havo to take a back seat It will only bo by a fight and the uso of some larger weapon than he has yet employed that Taft can dragoon Congress Into getting down to business for tho Sake of tho countr or can get any real attention for his policies The question In the background is will ho do It People aro I waiting for his corporation message to see ANNOUNCEMENTS Christmas Is coming and may It bo merry ono for everybody Our Issue of this week shows usual slakenlng

mean but this man I have known slate we were boys It I had never seen him That brings up another point that has been worrying me 11 day I could not help knowing what you have had to go through In this country It Is a tough country for any woman Your people and mine were alway lose together and I have felt bound to do what I could toDont be afraid to say Itmake my path easier Something like that though theres been lltUe real doing What this situ atlon in which Sinclair Is now placed may attn mean to you I do not know but I would not add a straw to the weight of your troubles I came tonight to ask a plain question If be doesnt leave the country I have got to meet him You know what In all human probability that will mean From such a meeting only one of us can come back Which shall it be Im afraid I dont understand yo- udo you ask me this question T How can I know which it shall be What Is It you mean I mean I will not take his life in a fightIf It comes to thatIf you would rather be should come back A sob almost refused an answer to him How can you ask me so ter Able a question- It 1 Is a question that means a good deal to me of course and I dont know just what it means to you that is the point I am up agalnsL I may have no choice In the matter but I must decide what to try to do if 1 have one Am I to remember first that he is your husband There was a silence What shall I say what can I say God help me how am I to answer a question like that How am I to answer IU Her voice was low and pitiful when her answer came You must do your dutyWhat is my duty then 7 To serve the paper that has been given tome I knowbut not necessarily to de tend my life at the price of his The play of a chance lies in deciding that I can keep the chance or give it away that is for you to say Or take the question of duty again You are alone and your friends are few Havent I any duty toward you perhaps I dont know a womans heart I used to think I did but I dont My duty to this company that I work for only the duty of a servant It L go another takes my place It means nothing except taking one name off the pay roll and putting another IWhatever he mat have done this man U your husband if his death would cause your pang It shall not be laid at my door We ought to un derstand each other on that point fairly before I start tonlffit Can you ask me wheter you ought not to take every means to defend your own life or whether uiy considera tion ought to comp leforo that I think not I should be a wicked wom an If I were to wish evil to him wretched as be has made me 1 am a wretched woman whichever way I turn But I should ba less than hu man it I could say that to me your death would aot be a cruel cruel blowThere was a moment of silence Dlcksle understood you to say that you were in doubt as to whether you ought to go away with him when he asked you to go That is why I was unsettled in my mind The only reason why I doubted was that I thought by going I might save better lives than mine I could will ingly give up my life to do that But to stain it by going back to such a manGod help mel OOZ think I understand If the unfor tunate should happen before I come back I hope only this That you will not hate me because I am the man on whom the responsibility has fallen I havent sought it And if I should not come back at all it Is only goodbyHe her clasp her hands convul sively OOZ will not say It I will pray on my knees that you do come back Goodnight Marion Some one is at the cottage door It Is probably Mr McCloud and Dlcksfe I will let them in CHAPTER XXXIV Wlekwlre

porch talked with the new comer In a moment he brought him In Dicksie had seated herself on the sofa McCloud stood in the doorway of the dining room and Whispering Smith laid one arm on the table as he sat down beside it with his face above the dark shade of the lamp Before him stood Wlckwire The halMlght threw him up tall and dark but It showed the heavy shock of black hair falling over his forehead and the broad thin face of a mountain man He has Just been tolling me that Seagnle Is loose Whispering Smith explained pleasantly Who turned the trick Wickwlre Sheriff Coon and a deputy Jailer started with Seagrue for Medicine Bend this morning Coming through Horse Eye canyon Murray Sinclair and Barney Rebstock got a clean drop on them took Seagrue and they all rode off together They

ranch eight miles southwest of Orovllle In the afternoon of the day after he left Medicine Bend The ranch lies In a valley watered by the Rainbow and makes a pretty little oasis of green In a limitless waste of sagebrush Gene and Bob Johnson were cutting alfalfa when Whispering Smith rode Into tho field and stopping the mow era the three men talked while the seven horses nibbled the clover I may need a little help Gene to get him out of town remarked Smith after be had told his story that Is If there are too many Cache men there for me Bob Johnson was stripping a stalk of alfalfa In hIs

Orovillo faces the river and the buildings string for two or three blocks along modest bluffs Not a soul was anywhere In sight when Whispering Smith rode Into town save that across the street from where he dismounted and tied his horse three men stood in front of the BlackbirdThey the new arrival with languid interest Smith walked stiffly over toward tho saloon to size up the men before he should enter It The middle man of the group with a thin red face and very blue eyes was chew- Ing tobacco in an unpromising way Before Smith was halfway across the street be saw the hands of the three men falling to their hips Taking care however only to keep the men between him and the saloon door Smith walked directly toward them Boys have you happened to see Gene or Bob Johnson today any of your He threw back the brim of his istoUcn as he spoke Hold your band right there rlsht where it Is said the bluoycd man sharplyWhispering Smith smiled but held his hand rather awkwardly upon his hat brim

saddlepocket ands asked leave to step across the street to get It Tho trick was too transpar ent and leave was refused with and some hard words Whisperin- Smith begged the men in front of h1 In turn for tobacco They cursed and shook their heads For an Instant be looked troubled Still appealing to them with his eyes ho tapped lightly tho lower outside pockets of his coat with his fingers shifting the cigarette paper from hand to band as ho bunted Tho outside pockets seemed empty But as he tapped the Inside breast pocket on tho left side of the coat tho three men lynxeyed watching his taco

could ever afterward recollectand for soy oral years afterward they cudgeled their brains pretty thoroughly about that momentwas that Whispering Smith took bold of the left lapel of his coat to take the tobacco out of the breast pocket An oxcuso to take that lapel in his left band was in fact all that Whispering Smith needed to put not alone the three men before him but all Orovillo at hIs mercy The play of his right hand In crossing the corduroy waistcoat to pull his revol ver from Ita scabbard and throw It Into their faces was aK too quick for better eyes than theirs They saw only the

nnnnnnONLY WISE WAY OF REFORM Prof Muensterberg of Harvard Uni versity Deplores the Retort to Extreme Measures In on address at Philadelphia dell ered n few evenings since Prof Hugo Mucnsterberg of Harvard university saidAfter studying this problem for moro than 20 years and after repeat ing frequently In the psychological laboratory all the significant experiments and after curing scores of drunkards by psychotherapeutic means and thus being near tho ques tion all the time I am fully convinced that under the present conditions of American life tho only wise way of reform is by working toward temperance anti not abstinence- It must be a campaign of educa tion toward a moderato use of light alcoholic beverages That kind of abstinence legislation which proviftia in certain parts of tho country and is evidently near in oth ers Is surely not for tho common good That It destroys industries and makes hundreds of thousands brcndless and that It deprives millions of a harmless joyful feeling is still the smallest harm which it produces Dut far more Important is tho disrespect for law which it creates Total abstinence puts a premium on tho systematic violation of law and produces a form of corruption which Is Btlll worse than the corruption which irradiates from the licensed sa loon Further it reinforces drinking in Its most miserable nnd dangerous form The moderate drinker Is cut off while the immoderate drinker is created It abolishes light wine nnd beer and opens wide tho way for the worst kind of whisky It eliminates every sound supervis ion and makes minors and inebriates the favorite customers A clean sur face appearance and mental destruc tion Worst of all the masses who feel the instinctive need of an an aesthetic quickly find substitutes- I speak as a psychotherapist whose experiences cover the whole country If I say that tho spreading of cocaIn lam and morphinism of sexual perversions nnd ruinous habits among tho abstainers is alarming nut even on tho surface any ono can see to what degree of dullness on the ono side and of vulgarity on the other side tho masses are led it the means of physiological relief are cut off from a strong hardworking population To fight Intemperance by prohibition means to substitute one evil for any otherWo must Institute a reform by slow education toward a moedrato use of light wIno or beer with com plate abolition of the present saloon and of the present disgusting habits and that is the only way to permanent success in this country as long as Americans remain Americans WHY FRANCE IS PROSPEROUS Largely Due to Campaign In Progress There for Extinction of Alcohol Ism In All Forms There Is a campaign In progress In France that has for Its aim tho extinction of alcoholism remarked Prof J H Le Dow of New Orleans while In Baltimore tho other day I had occasion on a recent visit to that country to find out the strength and earnestness of those en listed in tho movement Those en gaged in this reform are not to bo compared with the advocates of total abstinence in tho United States Tho French Idea is to bring about the abolltlpn of the harmful practice of imbibing absinthe nnd other baneful liqueurs but chiefly absinthe The ravages and ruin wrought by this se ductive liquid must be in reality frightful elso the enthusiasm for Its suppression could never have gained such headway or been embraced by so many respectable nnd Influential people With beer and light wines they have no sort of quarrel France Is however in splendid condition and its financial and politi cal solidity rests on sure foundations It is all things considered tho richest of nations and can act as banker for all True thero Is n big national debt but It Is hue from Frenchmen to Frenchmen and can cause no em barrassment The masses live well but they prefer the money to the ar ticles of luxury they themselves pro duce and therefore send abroad their silks and champagnes getting the foreigners coin In lieu thereof and salting It away for all time The money the Frenchman earns stays at home forever and ho saves over and above his living expenses moro than the Inhabitants of any other highly civilized nation Improving License Law An amendment of the license laws of the state of South Australia pro hibits women from acting as bar maids Those already in business are required to register and aro

Chief Executive Gives Reasons for De siring the Passage of Such a Meas ure Postal Savings Banks Plea for Conservation of National Resources Washington Tho president transmuted tho following message to con gross To the Senate and House of Repre sentatives The relations of the United Statea with all foreign governments have continued upon the normal basis of amity and good understanding and are very generally satisfactory Latin America One of the happiest events in recent paclncIndependentmenta of DoUvla and Peru of a boundary difference between them which for come weeks threatened to cause war and even to entrain embltterments affecting other republics less directly concerned From various quarters directly or Indirectly concerned the Intermediation of the Uni ted States was sought to assist In a solution of the controversy Desiring at all times to abstain from any undue mingling hayIng ments of Peru and Bolivia themselves to settle their differences In a manner satis factory to themselves which viewed with magnanimity would assuage all embitterment this government steadily abstained from being drawn Into the controversy and was much gratified to find Its confidence justified by events On the ninth of July next there will open at Buenos Aires the fourth Pan American conference This conference will have a special meaning to the hearts of all Americans because around Its date are clustered the anniversaries of the In repubIleathe congress of tho political social and gatheringspropriation for our participation If this be granted It la my purpose to appoint a

Republic will also hold from May to November 1310 at Buenos Aires a great International agricultural huIthe 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 ap price the Interests concerned of the op portunity

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 laid to have nearly disappeared and nel ther doctrine as It exists nor any other doctrine of American policy should perpetua110ncape of just obligations or the Insidious allegation of dominating ambitions on the part of the United States Beside the fundamental doctrines of our TanAmerican policy there have grown jp a realization of political Interests jommunlty of institutions and Ideals and

relations which so well bind together this republic and the great republic Immediately to the south between whirl there is so vat a network of material Interests- I am hAPPY to say that all but one of

Intending to take such future steps as may be found most consistent with Ita dignity Its duty to American Interests and its moral obliga tions to Central America and to civiliza lion Department of State- I earnestly recommend to the favor able consideration of the congress the es timates submitted by the department of state and most especially the legisla lion suggested In the eecrtarjr of states letter of this date whereby It will be 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 FarCastern affairs and to Institute a certain specialization in business with Europe and the near east will at once commend Itself These politico geograph ical divisions and the detail from the diplomatic or consular service to the department of a number of men who problems practical knowledge recently gained on the spot clearly ls 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 office of all the leading commercial 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 competition The consular service has been Im proved under the law of April I 198 and the executive order of June ZI 1908 and I commend to your consideration the question of embodying In a statute the principles of the present executive order upon which the emclency 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 suffi 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 the executive and the secretary of the treasury than had heretofore been declared by statute This declaration 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 tho ensuing fiscal year and of making an estimate of the reve flues of the government for the same period and If a probable deficit le thus shown It is mado the 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 i34OT5620 If to this deficit Is added the sum to be disbursed for the Pan ama Canal amounting to 118000000 and Jl 000000 to be paid on tho public debt the deficit of ordinary receipts and expenditures will be increased to a total deficit of t7S075C20 This def icit the secretary proposes tp 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 tion 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 and 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 discovery of extensive frauds In the collection of the customs revenue at New York city in which a number of the subordinate employe In the weigh- Ing and other departments were di rectly concerned and In which the beneficiaries were the American Sugar Refining Company and others The Qtdutygovernment 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 pro ceeding against a number of the gov ernment officer The treasury de jusice cover all the wrongdoers Including the officers and employee of the com panies who may have been privy to the fraud It would seem to me that an Investigation of the frauds by congress at present pending tho probing by the treasury department nnd the department of justice as proposed might by giving Immunity ami other wise prove an embarrassment In scour ing conviction of the guilty parties Tho Tariff Act mro 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 It practices against the United States the mini mum duties provided In tho bill are to go Into force Unless the president makes such a finding then 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 be In force Fear has been expressed dutyimposedlead to a tariff war 1 bog to express the hope and belief that no such result neht be anticipated The discretion granted to the execu tlvo by the terms unduly discrim inatory is wide In order that the maximum duty shall lie charged against tho imports from a country It le necessary that he shall find on the part of that country not only discriminations In its laws or the practice under them against the trade of the United States but that the discriminations found shall be undue that Is without good and fair reason I conceive that this power was reposed in the president dJUemlght but that the power to apply them would r enable the president and the state de 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 discriminator No ono Is seek ing a tariff war or a condition in which the spirit ef retaliation shall be aroused Needs of the Navy The return of the battleship fleet from Its voyage around the world In more efficient condition than when It started Was a noteworthy event of Interest alike to our citizens and the naval authorities of the world Besides the beneficial and far reaching effect on our personal and diplomatic relations In the countries which the fleet visited the marked sue cess of the ships In teaming around the world In all weathers In schedule time has Increased respect for our navy sad has added to our national prestige Injunctions Without Notice The platform of the successful party In the last election contained the following The Republican party will uphold at all times the authority and Integrity of 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 where Ir delayInafter should be granted I recommend that In compliance with legislation will best be met and the chief cause of injunctions torblddlnchereatteror restraining order whether temporary or permanent by any federal court without previous notice and a reasonable opportunity to be heard on behalf of the parties to be enjoined unless It shall ape 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 retraining order issued without pre vious notice and opportunity by the de- Pendant to be heard should by force of the statute to expire and be of no effect after seven days from the Issuance thereof or within any time less than that pe rind which tbe court may fix unless within the Injunction or order Is extended or renewed after previous notice and opportunity to be heard Second Class Mall Matter The deficit every year In the post office department Is largely caused by the low rate of postage of one cent a pound charged on second clas mall matter which Includes not only newspapers but magazines and miscellaneous periodicals The actual loss growing out of the trans mission ef this secondclass mall matter at one cent a pound amounts to about V300000 a year The average cot of the transportation of this matter Is more than nine cents a pound It appears that the average distance ov er which newspaper are delivered to their customers U at miles while the average haul of magazines Is 1049 and of miscellaneous periodicals 113 miles magazineisthe 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 GUt per cent of the weight of all the mall and yielded only BIJ percent of the revenue The figures given are startling and show the payment by the government of an enormous subsidy to tho newspapers magazines and periodicals and congress may well consider whether radical steps should not bo taken to reduce the deficit In the postoffice department caused by this discrepancy between the actual cot of transportation and the compensation exacted therefor- A great saving might be made amount ing to much more than half of the loss by Imposing upon magazines and pert odicals a higher rate of postage They are much heavier than newspapers and contain a much higher proportion of ad vertising to reading matter and the aver age distance of their transportation is three and a halt times u great Postal Savings Banks The second subject worthy of mention In the postoffico department In the real necessity and entire practicability of es tablishing postal savings banks The suc cessful party at the last election declared In favor of postal savings banks and although the proposition finds opponents In many parts of the country I am con vinced that the peoplo desire such banks and am sure that when the banks are fur nished they will be productive of the ut most goodFavors Ship Subsidy Following the course of my distin guished predecessor I earnestly recom mend to congress the consideration and passage of a ship subsidy bill looking to the establishment of lines between our Atlantic seaboard and the eastern coast of South America as well as lines from the west coast of the United States to South America China Japan and the Philippines The profits on foreign malls are perhaps a sufficient measure of the expenditures which might first be tenta tively applied to this method of inducing American capital to undtirtakn the estab steamshipsinIt most Important that we should have means of transportation controlled in the Interest of the expansion of our trade A bill ef this character has once passed the house and more than onto passed thIS senate and I hope that at tilts session a bill framed on the same lines and with the same purposes may become a law Conserving National Resources In several departments there It present ed the necessity for legislation looking to the further conservation of our national resources and the subject It one of such Importance as to require n more detailed and extended discussion than can be en tered upon In this communication For that reason I shall tale an curly oppor conIrus of our waterways upon the reclamation and Irrigation of arid semiarid and swamp lands upon the preservation of our forests and the reforming of suit able avers upon the rectors floatIon of the public domain with a view of separating from agricultural settlement min eral coal and phosphate lands

children laughing for sheer napplncus os If tholr hearts sang with tho song of dancing sunbeams Running and skipping nlong tho road Uioy wont blltho and Ray un tit they came to a great treo by tho roadside whoro they stopped nnd clustering about a child In their midst proceeded to do n strange thingThey cast their mantles nnd tu nics from thorn to the ground and prostrated thomsulvos before the one In their midst then left him and running Into a field gathered flowers Ho that sat alone a pen sive look upon his youthful face had the opponrnnco of nn angel Soon tho llttlo playmates their anna ladon with blossoms returned und weaving a wreath of glory how are crowned his head Into huh hands they placed n seep ter of burning gladiolus And abou I e Mm they joyously scattered tho fresh odorous blooms nnd while tie smiled upon them they proclaimed tbo little playmate Jesus tho son of the village carpenter their king Whllo they delighted In their war ship of tlrelr little playmate along the road In tho distance could be seen two men coming with heads sorrowfully bent carrying between them tho dead body of n boy What has happened the chit dren cried Alas responded one of the men the child was playing In tho forests yonder and methinks like many boys robbed the nests of some little birdsPresently climbing a tree he did put his hand Into tho nest and lo than uns hidden n poisonous serpent that sank Its fangs Into his flesh no sulfured terrible agony and sliding from tho tree lay until be died Thoro wo found him Come the boys sold and tell our king He forts the crowned one they paused and told tho story Illslng ho wild follow me WilYbacktreo said tho child king And there ho paused Oh treacherous serpent I command theo to come down he called And lot above the nest appeared a

who sank on awayItto deathArise said the child laying his soft hand on the face of the one who seemed dead A moment passed Thoso nearby looked on breath lessly Then the face of the dead boy broke Into n smile as though ho were having pleasant dreams and lie opened his ryes It Is related In tho Arable Gospel of the Infancy that Afterward tho boy Simon Zolotcs became one of tho Disciples of Jesus Of the days and doings of the boy Jesus In Nazareth the tour gospels tell us comparatively little It was natural therefore that about this unknown existence of the Adorable Child tho Christians of tho early church deeply pondered and that the rich Imaginations of me dieval times should have woven a vcsturo of tradition ary lore Tbo holy family returned from Egypt when Jesus was old enough to walk In many of the old pictures wo ace the Divine Child lending n mule or clinging closo to his mother Of that early life In tho land of the Pyr amide too early tradition has woven n pleasing fabric of legendsAmong the oldest of these Is the ancient belief that whenever the blessed Mary placed the clothing of tho boly babe upon trees to dry tho barren limbs burst into bloomAnother Is that whet the child wandered into tho for est where lions and panthers nnd all manner of wild beasts Uvcd they came forth to do him homage Still another that during the flight from Bethlehem when Herod pursued thorn mountains opened to receive Joseph and Mary and tho holy babe Into n secure ref uge that on hot days ns they reposed under trees tho boughs boat over to shield them from the sun nnd that as they passed along flowers sprang up In their pathway from the arid sand and that the barren desert bloomed where they passed it It is told that when they journeyed through a forest all tho trees bowed low In worship of tho Holy One that passed by and that ouly ono tree tho aspen held aloof proud and scornful It Is also related that tho babo gazed upon tho treo and that overcome with tor ror It begun to tremble and has trembled over since treeyroo pure Struck to tho heart oho trembled evermore It is nloo told that when tho holy family camo In- sightt of tho sphinx the great beast told tho eternal set cret and as they passed the temples tho old gods fell from their thrones And coming nigh to On Whoro t io house of nn till mlRhty god Cut In blank porphyry prodigious cured Fell from his scat Some writers of old say that tho holy child never went to school They love to write of his wandering alone Into tho forests nnd talking to tho birds and in sects And they tell how dumb beasts were endowed with speech when ho was with them Many old legends concern tho early schooling of tho boy Christ It is related that when a child ho was taken to Zacchous who began to try to teach him tho alphabet Aly teacher the marvelous boy is said to have uttered thou wouldst teach mo but I shall teach thee And then while the old man listened thunderstruck be repeated on alphabet which the other had paver I r r = learned lie told Zaccbcus he had lived from all time and knew all things Zac chews amazed declared ho could teach tho child nothing Some of the legends as unworthy as the minds that created them tell child struck his teacher dead Others tell of his inflicting playmates with death and blindness In tho world of legendary lore where ono finds stories Ingenuously simple and charming It is to be expected also that thero are crude and cruel tra ditions According to some stories the children of Nazareth must have found Jesus a wonderful playmate Thero was hardly any wish of theirs which ho did not fulfill Ono day it Is told some of the little ones wished for fruitOh how I would like nn apple said one And I some figs rejoined another How I would love some citron and grapes 1 quoth u third Jesus looked upon them nnd they all seemed so hungry and so anxious that ho made a sign in tho air and spoke a mystic word And lo- A green sprout curled from tho ground Palo green leaves burst forth Tho plant roso up and up and up Oh gasped all the children with great wonder as beforo their gaze tho plant rose higher nnd higher spreading out limbs growing larger and stronger und blooming with flowers Then the tree as they looked bore fruit apples and citrons and grapes nnd flgn and whatever their hearts wished hero Is another story of those childhood days A houso was being built near tbo small and modest homo of tho holy family One day n great uproar arose and Joseph stepping from his carpenter shop saw that a man had wallen from tho roof nnd had been killed Alas Mary he said entering the shop where Jesus was playing n man has fallen and broken his limbs methinks ho is dead Springing from the floor the child with an expression of great solicitude on his face rushed Into tho street The little crowd parted before him Ho peered Into the white face of tho dead man Then his voice rang clear and sweet f I any unto then arise nnd do thy work Tho dead mans eyes opened tho blood disappeared from his taco and his injuries healed And he arose and went back to his task At another time Jesus was playing with some chil dren on a roof ono of those simple childish games like that of tag today The children were very happy until ono tailing at full length went tumbling over the para pet A cry aroso Peering over tho stone wall tho face of Jesus turned whitehis little playmate was dead Imagine his distress when the parents of the child ap peared and accused Jesus of having pushed the little playmato over the wall Imagine tho anguish of Joseph and Mary at the graves accusatlonl Then Jesus turning to tho dead child called Zane Zonol Arise Arise Zeno and tell them If I cast the down And Zeno arose laughing clasping and kissing the hand of Jesus murmuring tenderly gratefully No no Thou didst not cast me down Until his manhood when ho began his mission it Is I believed ho plied tho trade of carpenter Mrny Indeed are the stories of his life In the carpenter shop of Naz areth t r T Many are the tales they tell of tho wonderful things he made when be was but a little boy Precocious be must have been and early he became Indispensable to his foster father Joseph Joseph wo learn from these legends was none too goad a carpenterthat Is judged by the modern stand ards of carpentering Often he would cut pieces of wood that were too long or too short for his means of measurement were faulty What then did Jesus do but take tho wood and stretch It or shorten It to the desired length People told Strange tales or those hid now at his toll Touching a plank Jt stretched to rightful length Or shortened It his willtho dead wood quIck To live again and servo him In those days It is related Joseph was awarded a commission to make a throne for n king at Jerusalem It was to bo an elaborate affair as all thrones are with great arms and twisted legs and grotesque carvings ono of those things only kings like to sit in Jesus spent much time watching Joseph hewing and carving the wood Joseph worked patiently from morn Ing until night and tho work required two whole years And then Imagine the poor carpenters disappointment when It was taken to Jerusalem and ho discovered that It was too small for Its place Alas he hud made a grave error Yes they had given him the right dimensions but an It often happened and carpenters do still ho made the mistake Two en the years of labor wasted The poor man was discon solate M l But why weepest thou asked Jesus who was with him This Is readily amended Be at peace I Then he directed Joseph to hold one end of the throne while bej took hold of the other Both pulloO and behold I tho throne assumed I the proper size Ono Sabbath morning with st halfdozen playmates tho child Jesus one old legend runs went to play by tho banks of the River Jar dan There had been a heavy rain the night before and the tall trees were still dripping and tho sanfl was wet Sitting on the sand the little ones began to fashion children wise animals of

Himself A Chance For Every One at Berea This Means You Too Going Away to School Many young people arc just now thinking of going away to school but as the time draws near all the obsta vies appear nt once and they get discouraged There will soon bo a shift Ing of them Those who have tho wIs dom to see tho great though faroff good and tho strength to attain It In splto of nearby obstacles will bo chosen for great things out of tho many who will let a small discomfort now keep them from tho great future good In which class will you bo- One great obstacle that comes up nt the last minute Is the dread of going away from home It Is very hard to leave tho place where you were brougbt up and where everybody is your friend It Is hard too to meet and do business with strangers in un are of young people are working Berea No better are alive familiar conditions and with new and unknown problems Another difficulty is lack of money An education does not bring cash on hand at once and when It is over it will take some time to make up the money spent All these things show very plainly just now and the advantages that will be gained can bo seen only with the eye of faith If the boy and his par ents cunnot look ahead It seems that the argument Is all against going away But If they CAN look ahead what a difference First as to friends Dozens of new ones can be made for every one left behind In tho school there will be hundreds of the best young folks from many and each can pick from among them all Tho home friends will not be lost and when tho student returns ho will have them nil besides the new ones And the home folks will think more of him because he will be more worthy of their respect And ho will bo worth more to his parents too Then as to the expense It small anyhow In n school like Berea and every one has a chance to earn something there so this too will be much easier than It seems However It will cost something In time strength and money to get an education and these things will have to be set off against the advantages But what advantages those argil Education Is n big word and none 3000 In tOollar on would be willing to Sot much less than 10 n day fact is that of expect to get such n sum for a days They expect to and many of are anxious for the pass so they at stop for 50 or 75 n less are lucky never to of the value day at school Let us see Is It Is plain we can at by subtracting the of a lifetime of uneducated from of lifetime of Now if we suppose that tho la gets 150 a day and that he works 800 In the year for forty years we lifetime times 300 times 40 which equals 18 000 This Is a very liberal for men get than 150 day add can the 300 year for years But now let us see tho value of ed ucated labor men of us knows nil that It An ed heated boy will be more able to uso nil the ho has Ho will find It easier to make his living and to sup port a family lie be more able to enjoy life for he will know more about It and will find in many things he passed by before But best of nil ho will a better man for It and will be able to do better service for his and his God Mid all this Is Just as true of girl All things would be worth If they simply put the boy or girl ahead of some one else But time has come they MUST thoI things unless are willing fall behind Men are learning by cation to do their work better It is foolish to say that you are as good as I NORMAL GRADUATES These the kind Who at neighborhoods is The or the next man when ho has more more can use better can make money and does his neighbors more than you do Older men did not have the chance and their lack is not their fault but excuse Is there for the young fellow who does have tho chance but is out by a of bogies along the road 7 TIt stay at uneducated boy will soon be see hag all the good places taken by others and himself left far Home sickness and a few dollars will look to him then and ho will wish he had risked live as If he had only taken his chance But there Is ono thing about going to school It gives or girls a chance to learn to take care of themselves This will have to come some day anyway Tho old can not always bo taking care of their brood and the n man Is when ho learns to depend on himself the he wilt get a start In life that will not be lost If you of those who now see In the petit to education and highest success in life be sure to look nt them well See how soon III bo passed and how great will bo the advantage to you of laving passed them They are like most of tho bles come to usas soon as we face boldly they disappear sands have tried and found It so and your experience will bo like theirs If you only have tho courage to start as did J IFor Winter of Twelve Weeks Beginning Jan 51910 Vocational andI Model Schools normal and- Academy

makes eleven years of 200 days each or 2200 days Now 22000 divided by 2200 gives 10 a day ns tho value of each days schooling TEN DOLLARS A DAY The boys or girls who realize this will not want to stay out of school and will see that neglecting their lessons will be cheating themselves out of the best thing life offers I IIiH and Education ISuccessIn America contains life sketches of nearly 8000 persons that have won distinction In some line of noble endeavor It is very Interesting to know to what extent their success came from education and we may get at the facts In this way There were according to the Inst census about 41000000 people In tho United States over twentyone years of age They are divided Into four classes shout ns follows Class 1 Without school training 5000000 Class 2Wlth only common school tralnlng33 OOOO Class 3Wlth common and high school training 2000000 Class 4Wlth college and higher education 1000000 I Now In which of these clauses do we find the 8000 persons who have won distinction N In Class 1Among the 5000000 we find 31 In Class 2Among the 33000000 we find 808 In Class 3Among the 2000000 we find 1245 In Class 4Among the 1000000 we find5768Th-echance you give your child will depend on the class you put him In rrom tho above figures It will be seen that the uneducated child ban only one chance In 150000 of attaining distinction But n common school education will Increase his chances four times A high school training will Increase the chances of tho common school boy twentythree times giving him eightyraven times the chance of the uneducated lay And n college education will Increase the chances of the high school boy nine times giving him 210 times tho chances of tho common school boy and moro thou SOO times tho chances

What Education Is Education Is preparation AM a man looks back oler Ills life he sees many things ho would like to do over again Ho Is sure ho could do them better next time And It lin should ever lie In the same circumstances again his experiences would tench him to do hotter that before But experience is like a stern light on n hOlltlt lights the path behind mid not In front Education makes n man a better farmer or storekeeper as well ns n better doctor or lawyer Hut more Important than nil this education makes n man n bigger broader letter man more able to enjoy life and to help others to enjoy life And this In the really Important thing It line been said truly It Is not so Important to make a living as to live Some people nro so busy nuiklng n living that they never take time to live
