who is opposed to ffave benefited greatly if not almost entirely by the protective sYStem rushes into print with a state mcnt that creates a commotion among those who insist ppon maintaining generally high rates of duty This time it is Andrew Carnegie who has come to the front with the statement that the iron and steel industry does not any longer need protection be cause he thinks the business can stand any reductions that possibly may be made Mr Carnegie ought to hear some of the tart things that have been said in Washlngton about him since he made such a declaration Those who do not agree with him are t apparently determined according to- the comments made that congress hall not listen to such talk as this Cartoonists have already pictured Car negle as standing In front of hundreds of barrels of gold piled up by him and exclaiming loudly that Iron and steel need no further protection Changed the Discussion The late HCX Havemeyer created a sensation here some years ago duringt an animated cross examination before i the Industrial commission appointed Jby President McKinley to investigate conditions generally As is well known Mr Havemeyer was then virtually head of what Is called the sugar trust Several of the members of the com mission looked upon him as one who If squeezed might reveal many inter esting facts On being pushed he surprised everybody present by asserting that the tariff was the mother of all trusts As there were ultra protectionists tariff reformers and at least two who leaned very strongly toward free trade on that commission the members thereof got into excited dis cussion among themselves as to the truth of the Havemeyer statement II la almost useless to add that the sugar magnate hugely enjoyed the rumpus l i created and his assertion has pro ked discussion throughout the coun ever since An Unusual Case Frank Boyd Gary junior senator from South Carolina will go back t private life after March 4 next He will then have served a few days less than a year in the senate When elect ed to succeed the late Senator Latimer Mr Gary frankly informed his friends in the South Carolina legislature that the unexpired term was all he cared for A longer service he intimated could not be pushed upon him The funny thing about his career in Wash ington is that Senator Gary had repeat edly remarked to his fellow statesmen that he doesnt like the life here and if he had known more about the rules and practices of the upper branch of congress he would never have come to the senate at all Why HeCjiose Daniel A visitor related the other day a about how President Roosevelt took a walk in a hard driving rain and went at such a rapid pace for seven or eight miles that a secret serv ice man detailed to accompany him was compelled to run much of the

BE MANY AT NEXT Accommodations In New Offices For Senators and Representatives The Next Headquarters of the Census OfficialsBy W ARTHUR Washington Dec iESpecialjThe assembling of congress is always an Interesting event This being the short session senators and representatives are generally well acquainted with each other Few introductions are necessary According to the unofficial list complied by the clerk seventy new faces will be seen among the members of the next ouse when it meets in extra session in March under a call from President Taft At the recent election Indiana made more changes in its house delegation than any other state amounting to eight the Demo crats securing eleven out of the thir teen members In the next house new men will be present from the states named below as follows Pennsylvania 7 New York and Ohio 6 eachI Missouri and Iowa 5 each Colorado Illinois Mississippi and North Carolina 3 each Kentucky Louisiana Maryland Nebraska New Jersey Ok lahoma Tennessee and Wisconsin 2 each Alabama Arkansas Connecticut Delaware Florida Georgia Idaho Maine Michigan Minnesota Montana Rhodp Island Texas Vermont and Washington 1 each Changes About the Capitol During the recess of congress several now modern and swift running eleva tors were placed in the capitol They were much needed for the crowds of visitors from all over the world in crease year by year The new office building for the members of the house la receiving the finishing touches It Is now In quite comfortable shape The eenate office building the contractors hope to have ready for occupancy by March 4 Senators will each have two rooms representatives have only one allowed them Senators have al ways voted themselves what they pleased There aro no accommodations at present in either the capitol or the old Maltby building which is occupied by senators not chairmen of commit tees for the more recently elected and Messrs Cummins of Iowa Page of Vermont and Fletcher of Florida who take their seats this session will have fchair quarters in the new office build lug rushed to completion New Quarters For Census Bureau The understanding Is that when the Maltby building is vacated by senators the census bureau will take it and quarter a large portion of the clerks therein This used to be a hotel and was rented and subsequently purchased by the government It Is not far from the ugly brick shack that is used by the census bureau and is itself dilapi dated The force of the census bureau is being increased right along an the next enumeration of the population is to be made In 1910 There is a modi tied examination of all men and women who secure clerkships in this bureau but as senators and representatives have a good deal to say as to who shall be selected for these temporary post tions the pressure for appointments will be intense from now until the time for getting the work well under way Prospective Naval Legislation There will be another tug of war this winter between the advocates of the four battleship proposition and those who are of the opinion that Un cle Sam will have a sufficient navy in due course of time if congress will regularly appropriate enough money for the construction of only two of these monster vessels a year Of course it is beyond human endeavor to build even one of the modern ships in a year it requires about thirtysix months to complete onebut those who favor the strong navy want more than two to be authorized at a session The talk around Washington is that Presi dent Roosevelt Is satisfied with having procured two for he and other believers in a large navy were afraid last session that the close fisted among the national legislators might cut the al lowance down to a single vessel They then realized that much was accom pUshed in inducing Speaker Cannon and Senator Hale to agree to two big battleships and if this number can be secured right along not many years will roll by before the United States will have fleets powerful and large enough to serve notice on the whole world that it will be a mighty danger ous thing for any power to monkey7 with Uncle Sam in either the Atlantic or Pacific ocean Advocates Young Men For Army Senator McCreary of Kentucky who voted last session for four battleships says he favors for his country the strongest army and navy possible If he could have his Vay he would have the army composed only of the young men the ages to range between seven teen and twentyfive and he thinks only single men should be enlisted He means the privates however the age

they are more difficult to clean In no way detracts from their popularityIt easy to remove stains from the mellow creamy material without spoiling Its tone Some useful hints on cleaning Ivory are given herewith When the stains are very slight and do not seem to be permanent though they cannot be rubbed off with a dry cloth wash the Ivory thoroughly ifi warm water and soapsuds and then without drying it on a cloth place it in the bright sun light for a few minutes This exposure will usually remove the stains After they have disappeared wasp the ivory again in soap lind aterinse it thoroughly and dry carefully with a soft cloth When the stains do not disappear entirely after contact with the suns rays the ivpry should be washed again In soap and wafer then Rinsed in clear water to which a little lemon Juice has been added Care must be taken to have the temperature of the water right as too great heat will in jure the IvoryIIVery dark discolorations require the services of an expert to remove though one may be fairly successful by ruby bing oxalic acid solution not too strong and applying this to the dark spots or streaks with a brush After ward wash the Ivoijy well In clear warm water and dry with absorbent cotton or a soft cloth and then leave In the sunshine or in a warm place to bleach The acid of a lemon Is not harmful to the most delicate piece of ivory In fact the Juice of a lemon can be applied with a mixture of cleansing powder or whiting directly to the ivory without running any risk of spoiling Its tone or texture It should however be removed quickly and the Ivory thoroughly cleansed afterward with plenty of warm water Cabinet pieces that become discolored can be cleaned in this way and will be greatly improved in color and appearance THE FRESH AIR LADY She Could Sneeze at a Draft That Wasnt There The fear of fresh air is mostly a fig ment of imagination Two women were traveling through Europe together The one a modern of the moderns

dertakerOne fate forced these two to room together Miss Ozo e being the last to retire threw up both window as high as possible after turning out the light Immediately came sneeze after sneeze from the bed Oh I can never stand that draft Those windows must come down Im taking cold already cried Mrs Fraid ofair But it Would kill me to sleep in a stuffy room replied Miss Ozone Well Ill have pneumonia by morn Wing if you dont HowrldlculousJ Dont you know thorough ventilation is the surest safeguard against pneumonia Oh dear Im getting a chill now Its outrageously selfish of you to keep those windows up So Miss Ozone being younger and really fearing the other would get sick from sheer fright reluctantly pulled down the windows and endured- a restless night to wake up with a jInfound that the open windows that had caused the sneezing and chill were double ones the outerpair of which had been tight closed throughout the whole discus sion IN THE KITCHEN Onion Cake Peel five or six

Boiled Custard Quince Tart j Quince chips are a thick preserve of tender quinces and sugar syrup A little invention may vary this by Adding fruit that does not disturb the flavor When cooked all alone the quince flavor Is quite strong and sweet apples seem created to borrow an equal flavor from the quince A very few quince preserves with Ice cream is a dainty dish and a spoonful served with a mound of whipped cream and gelatin Is delicious The Housekeeper suggests new ways for the fruit and one of these is a trifle made with chopped preserved qunces Arrange them In a deep glass dish with alternate layers of macaroon or sponge cake crumbs then pour over a rich boiled custard made vith the yolks of six eggs three table spqonfuls of sugar three cupfuls of milk and half a teaspoonful of almond extract Pour the custard over while It is still warm and set aside until very cold Just before serving heap over the top the whites of two eggs whipped to a very stiff snow with two tablespoonfuls of powdered and two tablespoonfuls orchopped blanched almonds Garnish with candied orange carpels or candied cherries A quince tart is either a pie or pud ding if one prefers it so called but it is equally delicious under either name Pressone pint of quince pulp through a colander add to It one cupful of granulated sugar the beaten yolks of four eggs and one pint of milk Line a shallow pudding dish with puff paste and pour in the quince mixture Twist a strip of the pastry around the edge of the dish for a border and bake in a moderate oven for about half an hour or until done Whip the whites of the eggs to a very stiff snow with four tablespoonfuls of powdered sugar heap it over the top and let it brown very delicately ina slow oven Serve cold with whipped cream Tapioca cooked in water until perfectly clear and thick to jelly makes another pleasing foundation for a quince dish Sweeten the tapioca to taste and flavor with a little nutmeg and lemon juice Place It in layers in a buttered pudding dish with chopped preserved quinces cover the top with the whites of two eggs whipped to a stiff snow with two tablespoonfuls of powdered sugar and let it brown deli cately in a slow oven The syrup should be drained from the fruit and used as a sauce Whipped cream is also a delicious accompaniment This pudding is excellent either hot or cold RoastnTake a round steakfrom two to two and a half inches in thickness and pound into it as much flour as it will take using the edge of a heavy plate for that purpose When the bothasides put the meat into an iron skil

Throughfares Were Illuminated In the Seventeenth Century Lighting the streets ofa large city In olden times was a far different thing from the Illumination of our thoroughfares now In 1GG1 the streets of London were directed to be lighted with candles or lanterns by every householder fronting the main road from nightfall to 9 oclock the hour of going to bed In the last year of King Charles IIsreign one Edward Honing obtained the right to light the streets with lanterns placed over every tenth door from 6 oclock on moonless evenings until midnight between October and April During the reign of Queen Anne in July 1780 Mr Michael Coke intro duced globular glass lamps with oil burners instead of the former glim mering lanterns In 1716 an act was passed which enjoined every house holder to furnish a light before his doer from to 11 oclock at night except on evenings between the seventh night of each moon and the thirdafter it reached its full formltill midnight each householder who paid poor rates being required to con atGaslight at its introduction In the beginning of the last century present ed such n novel spectacle to the eyes of foreign ambassadors that they were vain enough to imagine that the bril leant lamps were a part of a general illumination to celebrate their arrival Harpersr Light and Pain saif1theIlyou are a toothache sufferer havent you often noticed how the pain

United States is one of the shrewdest observers on American affairs and conditions His book The American Commonwealth published some years ago is a recog nized authority It is quoted by all American publicists and is used as a text book in many American colleges His views on present condi tions in the South are therefore par ticularly timely and important He received a notable reception Tuesday from the Southern Commerce Con gress then in session in Washign ton Among other things Mr Bryce said Since I came here eighteen months ago I have twice visited the South I can hardly express to you the con trast between what I personally wit nessed twentyseven years ago and the present conditions Wherever J have been in the South I have been struck by the signs of activity prog ress and development I see the land being brought more and more into cultivation more and more being done for agricultural methods I saw the resources of your soilof coaland iron being brought to light and I saw a new spirit in the South which desires to make educational prQgress commensurate with mate rial development The Ambassador pointed out the enormous difficulties with which the South has had to contend since the Civil War Nowt however he continued there is a great dqor open before you and as one of the wellwishers of the South who believes in its greatness- as a flourishing and important part of the country I venture to congatu late you upon what is being done and to say that still greater prospects are before you You can not eat all the flour ad vertised as the best on earth and you

stream of Aemrican far ers who feared that the Canadian West would be Americanized and would lose touch with Imperialand even with Canadian sentiment Now an alarm of quite a different kind is raised by the New York Times The Times says that no fewer than 7379 of Uncle Sams sons changed their al legiance last year and it is now said that the total of citizens we have presented to Canada has reach ed 40000 in the last half dozen years Before that time it would hardly have been thought possible it has seemed so natural for other national ities to become Americans but so contrary to the course of nature for Americans to forswear their country Editors NoteThe Times is in error Americans do not forswear their country in becoming naturalized Canadian citizens The explanation is simple Perhaps some of the newcomers had been brought up in the belief that Canada was a downtrodden colony wherein liberty withered under the shadow of monarchical and aristo cratic institutions They found that Canada was as free as their own country and that their change of home meant little more than a re moved from Ohio to Minnesota On the other hand if the Canadians in the West feared that the newcomers would be imbued with revolutionary ideas that fear would be speedily dispelled by closer acquaintance The American farmer is usually a hard headed practical fellow witha strong vein of conservatism in his character He wants to farm in the most modern way to make money by farming to take plenty of enjoyment out of life to give his women folks all the comforts and conveniences that are available and

ambition of each country will be furthered by the clearing away of those misun derstandings which elsewhere create danger ofwar An English writer once proposed an arrangement by which a man could hold citizenship in the British Em pire and in the United States at the same time The idea seems fanciful today but it may be realized in the future Why should international lations be regarded as

BATTLEaOF THE FARMERS Judge W M Beckner Writes of the Recent Struggle in the White Burley District The battle of Lexineton at the be ginning of the Revolution was won by farmers It taught them that even regulars were not invincible when those resisting them were in spired by the spirit of liberty and justice The farmers of the burley belt have just gone through a strug gle not so bloody but of tremendous import in its consequences to them Untrained with an enemy seemingly invincible and by no means as united as they should have been after the first battle of their struggle for their rights
