BY SCHEDULING $1,070,000 



Supersedeas Bond Fixed In Chicago 
to Await Hearing on Writ of Er- 

Chicago. Jan. 6-Wrlta of 
deaa were granted Friday by the Uni- 
ted Statea court of appeals in the caae 
of thirty-two of the thirty-three labor 
leadera convicted of a dynamite plot. 

All will be released on bonda. That 
of Frank M. Ryan waa placed at $70,- 
000. The bonda were made on a basin 
of $10,000 for each year of the term 
to which the men bad been een- 

In tlxing the bonda Judge Baker re" 
viewed the evidence and the argu- 
menta In the caae and atated that the 
bonda should be large enough to make 
the persona furnishing them very 
much concerned In getting the men 
into court when they are wanted. 

The charge la not one in which ex- 
tradition may be resorted to, he said. 
If the men should once get out of the 
country, he declared It doubtful if 
they could be compelled to return or 
If the government could punlah them. 

Only thirty-two of the thirty-three 
committed men were specifically rep- 
resented, although all were mentioned 
In the petition. Herbert 8. Hockln of 
Indianapolla had ezpresaed a willing- 
ness to 

the 33 

at oi 

for the 32 men, at flxed 
by the court, aggregate $1,070,000. 

Immediately following the decision 
of the court of appeals the point waa 
raised by whom the bonda should be 
approved. It was agreed by the court 
and the attorneya that Federal Judge 
Anderson In the district court at In- 
dianapolla should be the judge to ap- 
prove the bonda.

Settlement of Dispute By Two 
Urged By 

Newspaper Union News Service. 
Washington -President Taft is will- 
Ing to submit to arbitration the ques- 
tions at Issue between Great Briuln 

tratlon by The Hague Tribunal. 

This fact beenme known upon the 
presidents return from New York. 
Although he has not yet given the 
matter of a tribunal much thought, the 
president probably would prefer a spe 
clal board of arbitration, composed of 
an equal number of citizens of the 
United States and Great Britain. 

Such was to be the composition of 
the arbltratal court he proposed to 
settle any vital question arising be- 
tween nations when he spoke In be- 
half of the arbitration treaties. Tho 
president has expressed to friends tho 
view that at The Hague all Europe, 
would be against thiB nation, and that 
the moral pressure on the court would 
be enormous because all Europe Is In- 
terested in Panama tolls Just as much 
as is England. 

In a court on which only Great Bri- 
tain and United Stales were represent- 
ed, il is argued, there would be a much 
greater chance of a fair decision. Sev- 
eral Democratic senators have voiced 
the opinion that a special tribunal be 
created to arbitrate this dispute. -

daughter a man, armed with a re- 
volver, appeared at one of the win- 
dowa and demanded that she open the 
door. Instead of complying the wom- 
an barricaded the door. 

Just as the man broke open the 
door Mrs. Johnston fell dead on the 
floor, at the same time crushing her 
little daughter to death.

Hit Administration Success. 

Washington. Jan. 4. — The awt 
of Senator Bailey waa. the 

I If .ibl.'^l u J .ftKll t'Jvlfi- to '."»» 

capital Thursday. The retiring sena- 
tor, defending bis own career in con 
greas. made an elaborate attack on 
the Initiative and referendum. 

Practically none of Senator Bailey's 
address had been prepared in ad- 
vance. It dealt principally with the 
principle of the initiative and referen- 
dum, and he directed his words to- 
ward his resolution, declaring that 
Buch a "system of direct legislation 
as the Initiative and referendum 
would establish la In conflict with the 
representative principle on which the 
republic Is founded " 

"The wise and patriotic statesmen 
who dedicated this republic to liberty 
and independence." declar 
Bailey, "rejected a direct 
In which the people would rule with- 
out the Intervention of representatives 

■■Bf ^whfch'th^i^oTle* shouwT rule 
through their duly chosen agents." 

The senator quoted from states- 
men who participated In the formation 
of the Conatitutlon and the organiza- 
tion of the government to show that 
they had never Intended that the re- 
public form of government should 
give way to direct legislation by the 
people, such aa the initiative and ref- 
erendum would provide. 

"This Ib a republican democracy," 
he aaid, and cited again opinion of 
men Identified with history to prove 
that a "representative democracy" 
waa better than a true democracy. 
Senator Bailey aaid he would not 
quote from lawyers, because they "do 
not seem to be In high favor now 
with those who wish to work this 
change In the government." 

"I never had a client who was my 
master In any manner," he declared 
at one point. 

Mr. Bailey quoted from works of 
President-elect Wilson. 
"I am a Democrat." aaid Senator 
lough 1 did not favor 
no man living hopes

Work Haa Been Greatly Hsmpered by 
Lack of Cars — Output for Thla 
Year Should Reach Much 

Frankfort — Kentucky's coal output 
for 1912 was 14,000.000 tons, accord- 
ing to a report of the United Geolog 
leal Survey. It says: 

"The development in what Is known 
as the Elkhorn coal field, la south 
eastern Kentucky, which have been ac- 
tively pushed during the last two 
years, are expected to be in full run 
nlng order In the spring of 1913. and 
will swing the raajoe. production of 
the state from the western to the 
eastern district. Up to the present 
time the larger part of the production 
has been derived from the western 
counties, and In 1912, out of an esti- 
mated output of 14.000.000 tons, the 
western counties have contributed 
over half, or say 7,500,000 tons, as 
compared with 6,500,000 tons from the 
eastern counties. 

"The whole state has suffered from 
car shortage in 1912, but it was espe- 
cially felt in western Kentucky, 
where. In December, the car supply 
on the Louisville & Nashville railroad 
was only 65 per cent of the needs, and 
« n the Illinois Central railway barely 
40 per cent From April 1 to May 15 
an agreed suspension of mining oc- 
curred In the organized districts of 
western Kentucky, which affected 
about 5,000 men."

Report of State Geologist. 

According to the quarterly report of 
State Geologist J. B. Hoeing, made to 
the Advisory Board, a practically vir- 
gin coal field of fine proportion is on 
the eve of development along the up- 
per Licking river In Magoffin and Mor- 
gan counties. Two co-operative camps 
of the state and government survey 
have Just been closed for the winter 
in Warren county and near Hindman. 
The latter camp was finishing work 
in the vicinity of Pound Gap to con- 
nect with similar work being done In 
Virginia. The survey Is about ready 
to complete a map of the Owensboro 
and Tell City coal field. An interest- 
ing work has been carried on in the 
fireclay district, embracing Rowan, 
Boyd, Carter and Greenup counties, 
and maps of the Georgetown quad- 
rangle and the Big Sandy valley coal 
field from Prestonburg to the mouth 
of the river.

Question for Future Hlitorlane to An- 
swer — Splendid Werk of Gcethals. 
Gorgat, Gaillard and Slbert Will 


Washington. — President Tnft's Jour 
ney to the Panama Cntuil Zone consti- 
tutes what will be the last 
extended trip which lie will tiinl.e 
while president of the i'nited States 
S"mo persons have wondered why Mr 
Taft cared just at this time to go to 
the tsthmtis of Panama and have won 
dered if it might not foe that his trip 
was planned largely for the purpose 
of taking a rest and having a little en- 
joyment prior to his separation from 
the highest office in the land 

The real reason why he Is going to 
the Isthmus of Panama is that he 
wants to assure himself personally as 
well as h- can that ' All s well with 
the Isthmus" and that the project Is 
to be left to his successor in office 
with every assurance that the present 
administration has done Its duty by it. 
Mr. Taft it is known feels an intense 
personal Interest In the work on the 
Panama canal. He regards It in a 
large measure as being the work of 
his administration, nlthough his so 
regarding It does not prevent hlin. it 
Is said, from acknowledging that the 
preliminary plans which made It pos 
slble were laid by a previous adminis- 

The president's personal Interest in 
the canal dates hark to the time when 
he was secretary of war. and when 
civilian engineer after civilian engi- 
neer was appointed to the work of 
building, only to resign one after an- 
other. It « ill be remembered that one 
of these engineers received a per 
eonal verbal instigation from William 
Howard Taft that tv  probably holds 
In ear-tingling memory today. 

Who Put the Soldiers In? 
The canal. It seems to foe assured. I 
Is going to be a success and the que3- i 
tlon which the future historian after 
proper investigation must answer is 
"Who was responsible for taking the j 
digging operations out of the hands 
of civilians and putting it Into the 
hands of the soldiers. Theodore Koose i 
velt or William H. Taft? 

Col. George W. Ooethals virtually I 
has promised that water shall be turn- 
ed Into the canal throughout its en- | 
tire length in April next. This it Is 
believed will be the beginning of the 
end of successful accomplishment 
After it was decided to put a soldier 
In charge, it was Secretary of War 
Taft who suggested to Theodore 
Roosevelt that Colonel Ooethals be j 
given control of the work on the isth- | 
mus. hut the question which no one 
has answered yet definitely is whether 
It was Mr. Taft who Insisted that the 
civilians should get out and the sol- 
dier should get in. or whether it was 
the suggestion of his chief. Theodore 

Rewards for the Builders. 
No one knows yet definitely what 
reward Is to be given Colonel Ooethals 
for his great englnerlng triumph. It 
1b possible that he will be put In 
  barge of the great canal commission 
which will be responsible for the op- 
erations of the canal and for Its main 
Again it is possible that he 
be made a full general of the 
army, a rank which has been held by 
only four men in the history of the 
government. Washington. Grant, Sher 
man and Sheridan. The most likely 
reward perhaps la that Colonel Goeth- 
als will be made chief of engineers 
of the United States army, a position 
which he will bold until the time of 
Ms retirement at the age of sixty-four 
years, which will give hltn nine years 
yet of active service. 

Among the others to be rewarded 
for their work on the Isthmus will be 
Col William C. who made the 

a sanitarv 
David B. Gaillard and 
William L Slbert. lieutenant colonels 
■I engineers, who have been charged 
with the Immediate supervision of the 
work on the Gatun dam and at the 
( ulebra cut. Gaillard and Slbert were 
chosen as associates In the canal work 
|) Colonel Ooethals. 

In Just what form congress will 
show Its appreciation of the work of 
Gaillard and Slbert Is not known, but 
It Is possible they may be promoted 
to the rank of brigadier general when 
vacancies In that rank shall occur

and his Democratic colleagues of 
that body, probably will have • full 
understanding of the views of Presl 
inir elect Woodrow Wilson on the 
subject of tariff revision. Mr. Un- 
derwood will confer with Mr Wilson 
and will In turn impart the Informa 
tlon received to hi* committee col- 

During the campaign Woodrow Wll 
•on said that he wanted the tariff re- 
vised In such a way that business 
would not be disturbed. The Demo- 
crats In congress differ to some ex- 
tent as to the amount of cutting which 
can be done la the schedules and yet 
• void scaring business " The Demo 
crats here understand that the presl 
dent-eleet will make a close study of 

changes In these bills will depend up- 
on the results of conferences between 
the Incoming president and the con 
gresslonal leaders of his party. 

Vlewe Vary In tho Party. 

To give an Idea of how the Demo 
crats vary In their views of the best 
way to approach revision. It might be 
said that one Democratic member Mr 
Doremus of Detroit, has hern hold 
enough to tell his colleagues '.hat tho 
result of the recent election does not 
prove that th« majority of the people 
of the Cnlted States dcsltc deep cuts 
Into the foody of the rates. 

There are views expressed Jost 
counter to those of Mr Doremus 
Some of Ihe Democratic party leaders 
want the revision to be "as deep as a 
well" and taw* say that the results 
will In no wise be disastrous to husl 
ness and that the only thing which 
keeps the party timorous on the subject 
Ir the assertion of the opposition that 
a tariiT for revenue only will mean 
business disaster and the defeat of 
the Democracy at the next election. 
The radical revision Democrats tell 
their brethren that the last thing to 
pay att  BtlOl to Is the advice of tho 
threat! of men who want to see tri- 
umphant Democracy become defeated 

May Not Resemble Former Bills. 

Few Kcmibllrana and few Progres- 
sive Republicans In Washington be- 
lieve apparently that the next Demo- 
cratic tariff bills will bear any close 
resemblance to those formulated by 
the ways and means committee, at the 
Inst session. Some of the Democrats 
hold to the views of the opposition In 
this matter, nlthough they content 
UkMMehrM with saying that the wis- 
dom of the wnys and means commlt- 
tt i an foe trusted. 

At the last session the Democratic 
tariff bills which passed the house 
were sanctioned by the senate only 
.-.her their form had been changed. 
The compromise in the senate was ef- 
fected by a combination of the Demo- 
crats and some of the Progressive He 
publicans who are known as moderate 
protectionists. If the Republican aid 
had not beea forthcoming the bills 
which Mr. rnderwood's committee 
framed and which the house passed 
never would have reached the passage 
stage in the senate. 

President Taft Interposed his veto 
of the Democratic-Progressive Repub- 
lican measures of the last session anil 
there are some critics of tho con 
gresstonal action who say that the 
bills would not have been pas-ted un- 
less it was known that the president 
was certain to Intervene with a veto. 

At the extra session which Mr. Wil- 
son w ill call for the purpose of revis- 
ing the tariff, the customs bills which 
are passed nre almost certain to bo, 
signed and therefore the men who 
are responsible for their passage must 
be prepared to take the full responsi- 
bility for the laws when they go Into 

Lever Bill In Senate. 

At the last session the house 
of representatives passed a bill 
framed by Representative Asbury 
F. Lever of South Caroline which has 
for its object what may be called In 
a sense a subsidy by the government 
in behalf of the agricultural interests 
of the I'nited States. In congress ag 
riculture has been spoken of as the 
"greatest profession," and the idea 
of the bill is to combine a government 
appropriation with an equal appropri- 
ation from each state which will grant 
it for the purpose of paying agricul- 
tural demonstrators who will go to 
the different farms in their allotted 
territory to give to the farmer the 
benefit of experience and advice in 
the matter of intensive agriculture. 

The Lever bill Is now before the 
senate, and If It passes and Is signed 
by the president, as it probably will 
be, it will virtually at once become a 
law. If, however, tho senate falls to 
pass it at this session the measure 
will fail and work on It must be be- 
gun ail over again If It Is the Inten- 
tion of the promoters to continue their 
labor In its behalf. All bills die whin 
a congress dies, and thli 
dies on March 4 next 

The Lever bill has 
In these dispatches 
There has been a good deal of inter- 
est In the measure, but It is suggested 
to the agriculturists of the country 
that they get copies of the bill, study 
It and find out if It meets with their 
approval In all its details. Congress 
Is apt to pass a bill which is backed 
foy li tters of approval from the men 
and the communities supposed to be 
benefited by It. and it Is likely to 
kill * bill If the letters concerning it 
show marked disapproval or If ap- 
proval and disapproval are about 
j evenly divided 

The I. ever bill calls for a federal 
appropriation of J3.000.000 to be - x- 
tOajsV d over a period of ten years, 
with the states of the Union subscrib- 
ing an e jual amount. The author of 
tin- fo'll says that llelglum and other 
Kuropean countries through th» .htro 
duction of lnteusive farming method* 
are produclug from two und one half 
to three times as much per acre at 
America. Mr Lever aays that were 
this country to approach the Kuropean 
scale it would be equivalent to the 
discovery of a colony equal In site to 
the present territory of this country 

The support for the l^ever bill 
comes from both partlee In congress, 
a fact which Is true also of the oppo- 
sition to It. It Is proposed to pay 
farm demonstrators salaries, one-half 
to be paid by the

Louisville. Ky.- Fifty-eight work- 
men In the employ Of the Louisville 
Railway Company, engaged In laying 
tracks on the Shelbyvllle pike nt 
Beech WOOd Junction, were arrested foy 
ordi r of Magistrate Horsey on charges 
of b -. nch of the pea. e. They were not 
released until Clarence Dallam, attor- 
nay for tho company, arranged for 
their londs. An Injunction probably 
be asked for unless Magistrate Horsey 
withdraws his Object lea, which, ac- 
cording to Mr. Dallam, Is without 
foundation of law, as erofO the arrests 
of the men. 

Mr. Dallam said the Louisville Rail- 
way Company was given permission 
for a right of way by the Fiscal Court 
some time ago, and that the statutes 
of the iti.te permit the company to 
use any county road for its purpose. 
When the laborers .started to lay the 
tracks Magistral.- Horsey appeared on 
the scene and comma. ided them to 
stop work immediately. The arrests 
followed when the men refused to 
obey his nfrlers. tfaglstrafe Dorsef 
secured the assistance of Constable 
Osborne and County Patrolmen 
Merle and React and declared the 
men were under arrest.

The accident was spectc.cular. A 
' en ■ or thirty or more iron workers 
was employed installing a double track 
l lyetOOj across the bridge when the 
I freignt train approat ned. A few left 
' their posts, it is said, believing the

When Roar the center of the struc- 
ture there was a I ash and the foi idga 
crumbled. The heavy train shot into 
the water and tho bridge elel.rls cov- 
eted the train wreckage. 

The 0. & U. has been rebuilding tho 
bridge across the Guyandotte river In 
order to make room for a double track. 
The new bridge was neatly completed, 
but the middle span was supported hy

It was thought that this work was 
not as substantial as It should have

No one asked us M begin th«- pub

we ask iicrm IshU ii of any one to do 
no. I'he wisdom ot lt!  publication 
will be questioned by ninny If *e

have one on us It we succeed -then 
the original Madisonian's will be a 
regiment strong. 

It has long been our cherished am- 
bitions to lie the owner and editor of 
a good country newspaper. This am- 
bition has smouldered for twenty 
years or more, yet, all this time, 'twas 
a joyous dream It is said that two- 
thirds of our lives are spent In hesi- 
tating; the other third, in repenting. 
We've served the time of hesitating'' 
and are at the threshold of •■repent- 
ing." We have the temerity to enter 
and In so doing, are susiained by the 
words of the immortal Shakespeare: 

"Our doubts are traitors. 
And make is lose the good we oft 
might win. 

Hy tearing to attempt." 

We fear nothing. Nor have we ever 
feared. Our hesitancy was based on 
the laudable grounds that our friends 
were engaged In this service and that 
one more organ might tend to their 
injury. Hut the great increase in the 
volume 01 business at this place, led 
us to believe that our coming would 
not do them any injury, though we. 
perchance, may catch a few crumbs 
that fall from the groaning commer 
clal tables They are as hue a set of 
gentlemen as ever shoved a quill. My 
peace to and love for them. 

We shall refuse to travel in the 
©Id beaten paths or country journal 
ism. These wornout methods have 
reduced the country papers to nothing 
more than large, unwieldy sheets, 
tilled with advertisements and some 
new-s. We shall endeavor to run a 
paper filled with news and things 
beneHcial to the home and at the same 
time carry some advertisements. We 
recognize that our inexperience will 
handicap BB tor the present, but we 
trust to your noble generosity of 
opinion to help us along; and you 
should remember that a good news- 
paper, pitched on an exalted plane, 
will help any community, however 
enlightened that community may be; 
and m exchange tor our efforts, we 
should have not only your hearty good 
will, but some of your business as 

We do not promise to revolutionize 
country journalism. We shall try to 
give in our paper some features not 
heretofore given hy this service. The 
first page will be devoted to national 
news; the second to general sta'e 
news. No advert iseinents will be al- 
lowed on either of these two pages 
A busy man is entitled to read the 
news without having to search for it 
among flaming advertisements. The 
other pages will cany advertisements 
and one of these pages will be de- 
voted to local news; one to social 
news; one. a page lor women and efcil 
dr. i. One, a farmer's page; a religi- 
ous and temperance page; a page of 
general literature, containing good, 
short stories ami a serial story; a page 
tor general political news at Frank- 
fort and Washington and as man  
other i ages as may be necessary to 
carry out the general plan. A paper 
so conducted will be costly to get out 
and our only hope of maintaining such 
a paper, is based on the idea that the 
people will show sufficient apprecia- 
tion to give us a liberal subscription 
Nor do we fail to remember that sen 
timent dies aborning from the womb 
of commercialism and we shall not 
expect a dollar except for value re- 

Politically, the Madisonian will be 
Democratic. It will be independent In 
thought and word but very consider 
ate of the opinion of others. The MWI

One id the landmarks of the city 
has been called to his reward. Mr. 
L. (). Schmidt, who has lived in this 
city for many years was stricken with 
paralysis a week ago and his condi 
tiou was such as to give no hope for 
his recovery. He was iu tailing health, 
which, coupled with his extreme age, 
made it impossible lor him to re- 
cover. His death came while sur- 
rounded by his two daughters, Miss 
Kate and Laura Schmidt, the only 
survivors of his immediate family. 
He leaves a sister Mrs. Owen McKcc 
of this city. 

At one time he conducted a large 
carriage factory very successfully iu 
this city lie was burned out three 
times without any insurance to re- 
coup him. For many years he has 
been connected with the Midkiff Car- 
rlage works wheie he was a valuable 
man, performing all or his manifold 
duties faithfully. 

Mr. Schmidt was a Christian gen- 
tleman in every sense of the word and 
It always made you feel good to as- 
sociate with him. He. on one oca 
sion, opened his house as a hospital 
to the wounded soldiers on both sides 
or the late unpleasantness and he and 
his family ministered to their wants.

son were united in marriage, the cere- 
mony being performed by the Kev. Ed- 
ni in. I Hurnaiu, great uncle of the 
bride. The wedding was a quiet one, 
only the immediate relatives and 
friends being present. The bride en- 
tered the room on her father's arm and 
was met under the arch by the groom 
and his best man, Mr. Young. The 
ribbon bearers were the young broth- 
ers and cousins of the bride, while the 
lovely little sister. Lillian, acted as 
Mower girl. The house was beauti- 
fully decorated with poinsetta, south- 
ern simlax and American Beauty roses, 
a lit setting, for so fair a bride. The 
groom, who is the son of the late Prat. 
W. M. WHson, of Central I'niversity, 
stands high iu both business and so-

The modish woman, when chooalng 
the flowera to tuck in her stole or bod- 
ice, always beara In mind that It 
muat be In seaaon. At preaent ahe 
wears two or three china asters, a aln- 
gle chrysanthemum or a bunch of 
mountain-ash berrlea. These resem- 
ble a cluster of gleaming rubles 
against a autt of gray, black or blue 
velvet. The touch of vivid color la 
an abaolute necessity this winter, and 
many costumes depend entirely on the 
corsage bouquet for thla. 

English violets give a lovely touch 
to gray and pruna-colored gowna. 
They can be excellent Imitations of 
the flowera, or made of narrow ribbon 
combined with green leavea. One 
elver woman usea the real leavea with 
ribbon flowera, which wilt slightly 
and give an excellent Idea of the nat- 
ural flowera. 

Maidenhair fern Is being combined 
with the corsage bouquet now. It 
softens any vivid color and blenda 
with a gown In a very desirable man- 
ner. The real fern can be preaerved. 
by the way, for daya If the enda are 
burned off, thua forcing the sap up 
Into the leavea. Asparagus fern la 
also a good addition to a allk flower. 

Lilies of velvet, orchids of allk and

petaled forms vie with the small clus- 
ter flowers that are maased In bunches

Use of Ostrich Feathers 

Tinting Lace. 
A weak aolutlon of permanganate 
of potash will tint lacea that deep 
shade of ecru ao much uaed at pres 


It must be carefully dissolved, oth- 
erwise it will produce atalna which 
are Impoaalble to remove. 

Test the dye with a small piece of 
muslin before dipping the lace. If 
the color ia too deep, dilute the aolu- 
tlon until the required hue is obtained. 
Never allow the lace to remain In the 
dye; altnply dip In and out again. 

Tea or a aolutlon of coffee la ex- 
cellent to tint lacea. The latter pro- 
duces the fashionable string color. 

Lace trlmmlnga to match the mate- 
rial of the frock are much uaed thla 

The dlrectolre ruff made of ostrich 
feathera haa been decidedly success- 
ful although It la not always becom 
Ing. It Is smart and when worn to 
match the hat trimming or the gown 
ia one of the most effective ftniablng 

Theae ruffs came In early In Parla 
and have been made In all colore to 
be worn with visiting or promenade 
gowna. They are good In the natural 
ostrich colors and In some of the rich, 
soft blues are particularly brilliant 
and handsome. The ruffs are made 
of long or short flues and finished 
with long loops and ends of velvet or 
allk ribbon. 

Perhaps It was their success which 
haa brought in auch an array of os- 
trich boas and muffs for midwinter 

wear. In these the natural ostrich 
an.! the light tints in colors show to 
bet' advantage. 

Ostrich combined with marabout, or

The ostrich band trimmings uaed 
on hat brim edgea and French 
plumes on the millinery worn with 
these muffs and boa sets are placed 
in a setting where they show to best 
advantage. In fact, a plain gown Is 
toned up by such accessions to the 
point of distinction. It Is almost over- 
loaded becauae the attention is lo-

Evening Cloaka. 
A popular material for evening 
cloaks this season Is brocaded velvet, 
sometimes closely resembling In ap- 
pearance and dealgn the atamped vel- 
vet so widely used some years ago for 
upholstering furniture. The colors of 
these cloaka are often very brilliant, 
cobalt blue for example, trimmed with 
white fox; rose pink, trimmed with 
whits panne and 
niuetari yellow. 

A coat In material of the last named 
bus has a collar which at the back la

The spring maid of 1913 Is to be 
straight front, straight back, hipless 
and curveless. If fashionably attired, 
ahe will look like a straight line, 
with an oblique line at the tops, said 
oblique line being her hat, according 
to the latest bulletins sent out by the 
suit and cloak makera' conventions 
In Chicago. 

Skirts are to be perfectly straight, 
looking like an envelope. Jackets are 
to be the same. Narrow aklrts will 
prevail, hence they will be slaahed 
ao that the wearer may move with 
aome degree of safety. The alash 
may be In the back, front or side. 
The slash will extend to a point Juat 
below the knee and will be skilfully 
concealed by pleata. 

For plump, rotund women, who can 
not wear the positively straight lines, 
the fashion-makers have taken a les- 
son from the unspeakable Turk. For 
plump women there will be skirts of 
the voluminous, sheet-like rolje of the 
desert roamer. drawn tightly about 
the anklea and full at the top. Orien- 
tal colors also will be drawn upon 
heavily In the new atylea. 

Returning to the slender woman, 
jackets will be cut on the same 
straight lines as the skirts. The cut- 
away pattern will prevail, and this 
calls for some decoration to fill In 
the front. For this purpose there will 
be a waistcoat, exactly like a man's 
vest, to finish the open coat. The 
spring coats will be striking of stripes 
and checks, the one finding the most 
favor among designers being the "rah

Waters Indis 
for the Toilet. 

For ths Worried Woman a Little, 

Found to Msvo b 
cal Effect. 

Rerreshlng toilet waters are a real 
necessity for the woman of dainty 
habtta and many of theae cosmetls 
waters can be prepared at home with 
little effort and without great ex- 
penae. Nothing Is more agreeable 
than a spray of cosmetic water after 
the tub bath at the close of a tiresome 
day. A little aromatic water dabbled 
on the face and neck will freshen one 
up wonderfully and often will pre- 
vent the tired drawn look which Is 
▼ery detrimental to beauty. 

The business woman and the pro 

atudlo. will find it an 
to keep a bottle of toilet 
and two or three times during the 
day rub a little over the temples and 
on the back of the neck and on the 
banda. A little of the fragrant water 
massaged into the scalp will some- 
times hsve a magical effect wben the 
head reels heavy and tbe wits dull. 

Some or tbe best or tbe purchased 
waters are violet, lavender, orange 
and eider flower, but the mixtures ror 
home preparation possess a charm 
for the woman who llkea to be Indi- 
vidual in her toilet accessories, and 
the combination of the different In- 
gredients brings out some very dainty

waters and one which is really valu- 
able for Its tonic effect. Is made from 
simple garden herbs if these herbs

Dlaaolve the camphor In the alcohol, 
add to the vinegar and put all the

An excellent violet water can be 
made by simply emptying an ounce

pint of the best alcohol and shaking 
the mixture till It la well blended The 
same process, using any other scent, 
will answer the purpose, and lilac

No Postage Stamps. 

Ordinary postage stamps will not

laiMlal stairps will be nccei-:-ary and

will be of one color, terra cona red. 
but tho "postage due" stamps lndi-

On at the sending point, will bo black. 
So. whenever a man sees a postman

Parcels post stamps will be somewhat 
larger than the regulation tetter 
stamps. One detail of the sending of a 
package must not be forgotten. The 
■MM and address of the sender must 
be legibly written on the outside of 
the package, along with the name and 
suldress of the person tc. whom the 
package is sent. Another important 
feature relates to the bulk of packages

"The public seem to have the false \ 
impression that the parcels post is 
going to be a separate branch of the 
postoihYe department," said Pmlmar- 
ter Monfort. "The establishment of the 
parcels post merely means the placing 
of all fourth-class matter under the 
new rules. It will lower the fates, in- 
crease the weight limit and necessitate 
the use of special stamps. Otherwise 
it will be the same as heretofore. 
Wherever possible, regular carriers 
will be used and In all details of the 
handling of patcels post mail regular 
employes will be used. Many small 
stores throughout the city probably 
will use tho new system for delivery of

The chapter In 
which this test Is 
found sets forth 
the detailed ar 
rangomonts of the 
Passover. It la as- 
sumed that the 
children, observ- 
ing this prepara- 
tion, would ask 
their parents 

by It In answer 

leg the children 
the parents were 
thus afforded a 
good opportunity 
of staling to tho 
connection with 
their redemption from bondage. So 
today. In like manner, tho I.ord'e sup- 
per is often the means of arousing 
questions In the minds of both chil- 
dren and adults. What H tho Com- 
munion service? What does It repre- 
sent? What truth does It teach? In 
answering these questions the Chris- 
tian afforded an opportunity of stat- 
ing the farts of the Christian faith. 

First, tho Communion commemo- 
rates a fact of history. One can take 
boat or train and soon arrive at Cal- 
vary. He may climb this hill and 
reach Its summit where once stood 
the cross on which Jesus Christ died. 
N*o Intelligent person will deny the 
historicity of the fact of Christ's 

Second, the Communion Is a fact of 
Christian faith. True, .lestts died, but 
what did he die for? Here Christian 
faith declaros Itself by answering;, "Me 
died for our sins." The question of 
sin must be dealt with. Its debt must 
be paid, the divine wrath against It 
mnst be appeased, some ground must 
be found upon which a righteous Ood 
may deal In mercy and pardon with 
sinful man. The Communion table 
tolls us that all this has been accom 
plished In the death of Christ. It ac 
knowledges the reality of both sin 
and death, and relates these two great 
facts In the death of Cdrlst. In the 
■words of .lesus we say, "This cup Is 
the New Testament In my blood, shed 
for tho remission of sins." Preachers 
may deny the vicarious atonement of 
Christ; the pulpit may be silent 
touching the substitutionary character 
of Christ's death, but this table ha* 
proclaimed slnco Christ's death 'and 
will proclaim until ho comes the fact 
that he died for our sins; that 

"TV.irlnK shame anrl scoffing* run . 
Sealed my pardon with His blooil. 
Seal«»'i my pardon with His blood 
Hallelujah. What a Savior!" 

The Communion is a fact of pro- 
phecy. "As oft as ye eat this bread 
and drink this cup ye do show forth 
the Lord's death till he come." A 
fact of history, a fact of Christian 
faith, a fact of prophecy — that the 
Communion links itself to the past, 
present and future It reminds us of 
our \x rd, who, while present In spirit. 
Is absent In body, and assures us that 
he will some day come again person- 
ally and/vlslbly to this earth. There 
are two pledges for Christ's second 
coming: The resurrection (Acta 
17:31), the pledge to tL« world; the 
Lord's supper (I Cor. 11:28), the 
pledge to the church. The Commun- 
ion fable Is aglow with hope and prom- 
lee: It constantly preaches the sec- 
ond coming of Christ. Every time we 
gather around this table we should 
look forward with Joy to that glorious 
day when ve shall see not only our 
blessed U.d. but also "Those whom 
we have loved long since and lost 

■When 'mm loved nn»s wo ar" p irted.

As M struggle with our foam.

The Communion Is a fact of m» 
moriul Jeeus said, "Uo this In re- 
membrt.nee of me " The Comtr ,nlon 
Is to be u tangible reminder to us of 
our Lord. Sight helps memory. How 
the mementoes we have of our lovec 
ones retiilnd us of them, of what thoy 
wor ■ to us and of our love for them 
We so Eoon forget what wo do not

Jesus did when lie was here upon the

what was wrong with It. the great 
landscape artist peered at It for a 
time, then ran a rippling line of brush 
work right across tho canvas and 
made It live. 8uch a master touch 
on the character of a man Is (his add- 
ed grace of kindness. 

The Inspiration of a kind heart. De- 
prived of thla virtue, the strength of 
the giant becomes an engine of wild 
brutality. The more vigorous and 
forceful the man Is, the more damage 
ha la likely to do In hla ruth- 
less course through life unless re- 
deemed by (he Inspiration of a kind 
heart. And under the Influence of 
kindness the most harsh of men will 
reveal traits of humanity with which 
he would ever have been credited. By 
Marie Antoinette In her miserable pri- 
son there stood every dny one of the 
soldiers of the revolution. He had 
watched the sad face of the discovered 
queen, and her miseries touched his 
soul to pity. During the hot days of 
that summer he went to buy for tho 
helpless woman a melon from one of 
tho fniltsellers of the streets. Wnen 
he told the ru le virago from whom hi 
purchased It that It was for the queen, 
she picked the best from her stall 
and handed It to him. saying: "Ah. 
well, one woman may at least do this 
for another. I shall take no payment 
for H" 

To Thoto In Authority. 

That authority which Is bereft of 
kindness may be effective In maintain 
lng discipline, but will never get the 
beat service from subordinates. It la 
not the fear of the knout which will 
make the bravest soldier. Men may 
be dragooned Into silence, but for 
the devotion which counts death a 
trifle, for the valor which hesitates at 
no peril, there must be the belief that 
the commander cares for them and 
has their welfaro before his mind. 
Whoever would manage men must 
found his claim to control them on 
their belief that he Is affected by their 
anxieties and takes delight In their 

To goodness, this quality Is Indis- 
pensable, but which falls to create af- 
fection. It Is rigid as a marble pillar 
and cold as the polar seas. It never 
deviates from the plain path, knows 
nothing of the vagaries of weaker 
men, and cannot understand the ap- 
peal of penitence for compassion. Such 
goodness repels rather than attracts. 
It may move us to a sullen awe. 
but will never weaken our hearts be 
live. Kindness alone can create that 

I hear It said that we are becoming 
dangerously sentimental. Thla Insis- 
tence on the milder virtues is said to 
be Imperiling the virile qualities of the 
race. I see no signs of degeneration 
In that direction. Nature is too 
strongly allied to the brute beast to 
permit us to grow at once Into gen- 
tle saints. All the barriers that we 
can erect are needed to keep out the 
tide of fierce passion. It Is not less 
but more of this generous spirit that 
we require. 

Endure Only by Religion. 

Moral qualities must be rooted In 
religious experiences. What Is the 
genesis of this quality In the soul? Let 
us admit that It may be found with 
I out religion. Accident of birth, a 
I happy geniality of temper, immunity 
from the more pressing Idlla of life, 
may aid in its production. Are there 
not those so fortunately balanced In 
mind and body that the storms of the 
soul seem to them unknown? Are there 
not others whose days seemed passed 
In quiet harborage, immune from the 
troubles w hich others are compelled to 
meet? Yet, these* people can be 
found. But we must not go to them 
for guidance. We might us well aak 
Crusoe for Information about the 
Plague. Moral qualities are not to 
be left to the accidents of birth or 
temper; they must ho rooted in re-

The grace of kindness springs from 
the love of Ood for man. That for 
gtvencss which has come to us so free 
ly through Christ must move us to the 
exercise of pity for the weak and suf- 

J ferlng. Challenging a return of that 
love, asking us  o love (iod because 
he has first loved us. !t leads us easily 
to entertain toward men thnt af- 
fection by which we ourselves have 

' benefited. 

This quality will show Itself In a 
considerate thoughtfulness for others.

I.rSfmN TKXT-Oeneals 1:». V; i.T-*; 

OOLni-'N TFXT-'Tlod cr-st-d man In 
hie ow n Imaare '• r en. 1:37. 

Ten times the words, "and Ood 
said" appear In the first chapter of 
Genesis. Ood spske. find 'twas done. 
Now all Is in readiness earth and heav- 
en await his word, "and Ood said let 
us make man." ft 
though i 

before this momentous event. The 
"let us make" la full of suggestion. 
Thnt each person of the Triune Ood- 
head was present In creation we saw 
In last week's lesson, and It Is here 
still further Indicated by the plural 
form of tho Hebrew noun for tho 
name of Ood. But what pattern shnll 
we follow In the making of man? 
8urely only the highest, and best, 
hence "In the Image of Ood." This 
does not necessarily moan the physi- 
cal Image, but rather the Intellectual 
and spiritual Image of Ood. see Col. 
3:10, Eph. 4:24, John 6.25. Ood who 
la spirit (John 4:25) does manifest 
himself In material form (see Phil. 
2:6, Isa. 1: 1-4) and similar passages, 
and this form resembles the human. 
But this "image" (likeness) has been 
blurred and marred by sin, James 3: 9. 
It was. however, perfectly aeon in the 
perfect Man. Christ Jesus, see Cor. 
4:4. Heb. 1:2, 3. ' 

Science at a Pause. 

How Ood created man we are not 
told, except that he was "formed of 
the dust of the ground," and to this 
day the bodies of men and of nnlmala 
consist of the very same elements an 
the soil which forms tho earth upon 
which they dwell. It la yet to be 
proved that man came from the low- 
er animals, and It H a scientific secret 
that at. this point the real leaders 
of science are at a pause. The dust 
of our bodies is the same as yonder 
stars, as the lily of the field, as that 
which kings and queens are made. 

But still there are higher heights, 
for Ood breathed Into this man his 
own spirit, verse 7, and from this 
union of the body and spirit man be- 
came a living soul. Man is the con- 
necting link between the material and 
the Infinite, by the physical he Is re- 
lated to lower nature and by the spir- 
itual he is related to Ood. 

If the theory of the rehabilitation 
of this earth after the destruction of 
the pre-adamlte rSces Is true (chap. 
l:l»tt)i we now see Ood In his won- 
rlrous grace preparing a place for 
man's especial abode, vv. K. 9, 15-24. 

The two accounts of creation In the 
first and second chapters of Genesis 
are not contradictory, and to maWe 
them so one must read into the nar- 
rative what is not there. Tho first 
presents a concise outline of creation, 
the second an enlargement that con- 
nects these events with tho region 
where man began to live, the starting 
point of the present human race. 

That Eden was undoubtedly In the 
region of tho Euphrates and the Tigris 
rivers is pretty generally accepted, 
though, of course, we can only specu- 
late us to the cradle of the human 

After God had created Adam with 
the highest nature the animals were 
not fit companions for him. Nor could 
he be the beginning of the race of 
man without one like to himself. Man 
can attain his highest only as he has 
human companionship (v. 18). Adam 
had the power of speech, and an Intel- 
ligence, and was given the right to 
name the animals of the field (v. 19). 
But In all this thorn was no compan- 
ion for him (v. 20). 

Unity of Life. 

In the first account Is the simplo 
statement that Ood created "male and 
female," but in the second we see 
that man is not complete without tho 
woman. God's modo was to make her 
"bone of his bone" (vv. 22, 23). This 
suggests the utmost possible unity of 
man and wife; unity of life, of soul, 
of emotions, of home, etc. Matthew 
Henry calls to our attention tho wom- 
an was not taken from "out of his 
head to top him. ncr out of his feet 
to be trampled under foot, but out 
of hla side to be his equal, from un- 
der his arm to be protected, and near 
his heart to be loved." 

The marrlago relation Is the most 
sacred of all human ties (v. 24). It la 
the best possible training and educa- 
tion In love, sacrifice, duty, victory 
over evil, In all that is best In life. 
These are the qualities needed to 
build up tho race. When one Is de- 
graded the other of necessity Is low- 
ered. To understand the full meaning 
of the mrrrlipe reb.tlon we need to

For sometime paat the Canadian 
government haa had surveyors at 
work platting new areaa for the ac- 
commodation of the largely increas- 
ing number of aettlera coming in to 
occupy the agricultural districts of 
the three prairie provinces There 
were thoaa connected with the work 
of securing aettlera for weatern Can- 
ada who last spring prophesied that 
there would be as many aa 176.000 
new settlers from the United fltatea 
to Canada during the preaent year, 
and there were those who doubted 
that the previous years flguree of 
132,000 could be Increased. Recent 
computation made by the officials of 
Immigration branch at Ottawa 

by offlelale will be 

the 200.000 
States will he 

Increase will be shown In the 
of those who will reach Canada from 
other countrlea this year. The re- 
•ulta of the year's work In Canadian 
Immigration will give upward of a 
total of 400.000 souls 

But this la not to be wondered at 
when It la realized what Is offering In 
the three prairie provinces and also 
In the coast province of British Co- 
lumbia, which is also bidding strong- 
ly and successfully, too, for a certain 
class of settler, the settler who 
wishes to go Into mixed farming or 
fruit ralBlng. When the central por- 
tion of thlB province Is opened up b* 
the railway now being constructed 
there will be large areas of splendid 
land available for the settler. 

Reference haa frequently been made 
of late by those Interested In develop- 
ing the American west to the large 
numbera who are going to Canada, 
high officials In some of the railwaya 
being amongst the number to give 
voice to the fact. The

Bhrleks of hysterical laughter? 

"Catch him! Catch him!" thrilled 
a slender blorde to the leading lady 
running ahead with an athletic stride, 
her head and shoulders back, her hair 
rippling In the wind. 

"Get him. Jackie!" panted a rav- 
enous brunette, close behind. "Darn

A startled rabbit, aroused from his 
breakfast of alder shoots, sat up In 
mazy bewilderment, took one hasty 
glance and bounded away Into the 
marsh grasses, his tunny little tall 
bobbing through the squashy place* 
like a meteor of down. 

Ahead the man was running freely, 
taking an occasional swift glance 
over his shoulder nt the foremost of 
the foe. One by one tho pursuers 
were falling by the way. their laugh- 
ter becot.iir.g more and more distant. 
Suddenly the man swerved behind a 
great ash along the trail and waited. 
Through the brush behind he heard

light and airy. 

The man crouched. She was upon

cial treatment is most effective, agree-

comb the hair out straight all around,

ment Into tbe parting with a bit of

pose being to get tbe Cuticura Oint-

covering over the hair to protect the

Growth of Drug Habit in United States 
Alleged to Be Due to Opiates 
Ordered In Prescript!;**. 

That 99 per cent, of all tbe cocaine 
and morphine manufactured In this 
country Is used by persons who have 
formed tho dng bablt through physi- 
cians' prescriptions Is the startling 
statement made) by Dr. L. F. Keblcr, 
Chief of the Division of Drugs, Depart- 
ment of Agriculture. This statement, 
and others, proving that physicians 
nnd not "patent" medicines aro re- 
sponsible for the appalling growth of 
drug addiction in the United States 
wnB mace by Dr. Kebler In an address 
at Washington, before the American 
Society for the Study of Alcohol and 

Dr. Kebler Is Quoted by Washington 
papers as having declared that dniK 
using had Increased 100 per cent, in 
the last 40 years, and that American 
medical men were not discriminating 
enough In their use of opiates. Their 
overindulgence to their patients, he 
said. Is creating thousands of drug 
users every year. 

"It Is a very sad thing to say that 
our physicians are doing the greatest 
work In promoting the use of cocaine 
and morphine," said the doctor. "State 
laws are not saving the public from 
the grip of the drug htblt. and the 
American public Is sinking tlgbter 
and tighter Into the black abyss of 
the morphine and cocaine fiend. 

"The worst of It Is that the Impor- 
tation of opium Into the country is 
becoming larger and larger year by 
year. I have heard It said on reliable 
authority that 99 per cent, of tbe co- 
caine and morphlr.o manufactured In 
this country Is used by persons who 
have formed tbe habit through doc- 
tors' prescriptions." 

Almost simultaneously with Dr. Keb- 
lera address, Dr J. A. Patterson, at 
1 : rand Rapids, Michigan, In a public 
statement said that 19 out of every 20 
patienta who come to an institution 
with which be is connected for treat- 
ment for the drug habit owe their

Washington.— Leaders of all parties 
say that never within their memory 
nave there been so many presiden- 
tial nominations held up in the senate 
aa Is the case st the present time. 
It has happened that • gre«t 
v«c»ncles lu the federal eervlce 
the federal Bench down to the 
e-». presidential postmasterahlp. have 
occurred withtln the last few months, 
•nd It I* President Tafta duty to OH 
them. Nsturally the Democrats, know- 
ing that they will come Into power In 
•II branchea of the government In 
March, desire some of these places for 
their party members, and aa a result 
It I* likely that s good many of ths 
nominations will fall of confirmation, 
and an opportunity will be given to 
the Democratic president to name 
men of hla own liking for the places. 

It Is now apparent, however, th«t 
there will be no attempt of the Demo- 
crats to hold up nominations for 
place* In Republican stronghold*, or 
for places which have no present 
holdover Incumbents In them. The 
party leaders say they do not believe 
In crippling the service In any way, 
and they admit "the prealdentlal 
right" to name men for places where 
the Republicans have been and •till 
are In control. 

The entire repreeentatlon In the 
United States senate from the *outh 
I* Democratic, and at a conference of 
the Democratic senator* called to con- 
sider the patronage question it ws* 
agreed that the outgoing administra- 
tion *hould not be permitted to All

How Approval I* Withheld. 
Now It would seem that, the Repub- 
lican* still being In • majority In tbe 
senate, the president's present ap- 
pointments might be confirmed, no 
matter what action the Democrats 
might choose to take, but method* are 
peculiar In the United State* senate. 
'Senatorial courtesy," so called, take* 
cognizance of the objection of the two 
senators from any one state to the 
confirmation of any man appointed to 
federal office In that state. 

There la another condition which 
war* againat tbe senate'* present ap- 
proval of the president's nominations, 
or at least of a good many of them. 
While the Republicans have a major- 
ity In the senate, there are • good 
many Progresalve-Republlcan* who 
have not *cted with their party breth- 
ren on any subject of moment for a 
long time. The Progressive Repub- 
licans have said that Mr. Taft has 
given all the offlcea o the other fac- 
tion of the party, and that they do 
not care to countenance what they 
call unfairness by giving approvaMo 
prize* given where they should not be 

Diplomatic nominations probably 
will be confirmed at this session, for 
the reason that all such nominations 
can bn revoked at the will of the 
president at any time. This mean* 
that President-elect Wilson, as soon 
■■ he comes Into office can request 
the resignation of all the higher diplo- 
matic officer*. The resignation* will 
be forthcoming at once. 

When March cornea all the ambas- 
of the United States to foreign

ters will not do so unless theli 
nations are requeated direct It 1* en- 
tirely probable, however, that all the 
mtnlatera will be Informed that tuelr 
resignations will he acceptable, to the 
new administration 

Income Tax Law Soon? 
It seem* certain from present 
Indications that an Income tax 
law, which tbe Supreme court will 
not, because it cannot, declare uncon- 
stitutional, will be pa**ed by congre** 
and signed by Woodrow Wilson be- 
fore be leaves tbe White House In 
1917. It seems to be *iken for grant- 
ed that Mr Wilson will not seek a 
second term, and *o the date of re- 
tirement I* here *o fixed. A man may 
change his mind In four year*, how- 
ever and the Influence of today may 
not be the Influence of tomorrow. 

Congre** learned from the Supreme 
court that It did not have the author- 
ity to enact a federal Income tax law. 
It wu thi* knowledge that led to the 
proposal of a simple amendment to

five of the other states to. which noth 
Ing has been done; but It Is believed) 
that Florida. New Jersey and Wstl 
Virginia will take action throujrh thHr 
legislatures during the coming winter, 
and that soon after the Democrats 
come Into po*«e*alon of the adminis- 
tration and both branches of congress, 
an Income tax law will be passed. 

Democratic leader* In Washington 
admit that when the special session 
meets and they are certain that In- 
come tax legislation can be enacted, 
they will breathe easier as to what 
may happen to the resource* In case 
"the tariff for revenue only plan" Is 
put Into operation. When tbe ways 
and means committee was discussing 
revenue questions In connection with 
the preparation of the tariff bill* 
which Mr. Taft vetoed, It *tudled In 
come tax probabilities, and It waa 
finally agreed that If a law putting 
such a tax Into operation could be 
passed. It would result In an Income 
to the government the Brat year of 
about 980.000.000. 

Income tax legislation has Inter 
estrrt congress In an academic way 
for a good many of these latter years 
Some of the constitutional lawyer* of 
the house and senate have held that 
a law could be passed which would 
stand the test of the 8upreme court 
constituted a* was the one which 
about eighteen years ago declared 

This kind of taxation as t means 
of raising revenue and as a means al- 
so of in part making the rich as It Is 
put, "pay a fair share of the nation'* 
expen*e«," ha* not been compelled 
wholly to depend upon Democratic 
support A good many Republicans In 
the lower house have favored Income 
taxation and have not been afraid to 
say so 

Taff* Plan* for Future. 
What I* President Taft going 
to do after he leave* office? It 
has been reported and perhaps 
generally believed that he Is to 
accept the Kent lectureship of law at 
hi* alma mater, Yale university. The 
first report wu that the Phelp* fund 
which wu* given to endow the Kent 
professorship yielded an Income of 
95,000 a year, but it ha* been found 
that the actual Income from it Is only 
a few hundreds of dollars, and there- 
fore If the president Is to take ad- 
vantage of the lectureship opportunity, 
the university must take some meas 
ures to make the compensation ad» 
quate by providing funds from othei 
than foundation sources 

The president, it I* said, would like 
nothing better than to get back to the 
practice of the law. but he he*itate» to 
do thi* becau«e of the ei 
which frequently would 
pleading case* before Judge* who hold 
their seat* on the bench through his 
appointment. If the president should 
have a case before the Supreme 
court he would find himself confronted 
by several members of that high 
tribunal who owe their appointment! 
to him, and, moreover, the chief lu* 
ttce owes to Mr. Tsft his promotiot 
from an associate Justiceship to thf 
highest place 

First Hs Will Play Golf. 
What the president Intends Is) dc 
for a while, at any rate, can be told 
without much fear that the program Is 
to be changed. Before entering Upon 
an active career In the law or as an 
Instructor in It, the president Intends 
to go to Augusta, Ga.. to stay for some 
weeks for a rest and for a chance to 
play golf without feeling that a host 
of people are waiting to see him on 
official business and are waxing Indig 
nant because the game of golf ever 
was Invented to keep the chief mag 
is t rate away from hi* office. 

After hi* rest at Augusta, It Is ths 
president's intention to go to his noire 
In Cincinnati for a while and then to 
go to Beverly, Mass., for tbe summer 
Beverly Is the place where the presl 
dent has spent his summer vacations 
for some time. It Is entirely possible 
in fact tentative plans already to ths 
end have been made, that Mr. Taft 
next fall will go to Europe to travel 
and to take things much essler than 
he did the last time he was on ths 
he was secretary oi 
a rush trip from the fat 
east on tbe Trsns-8lberian railroad to 

It Is said that Mr. Taft has ex 
pressed a desire to see Europe In ■ 
leisurely manner, and after he has 
done this be will make up his mind 
what he Is to do In the future It Is 
reported that he has a private Income 
of about 97.500 a year and that If a 
law professorship will yield htm 95.ow 
In addition he will feel that he hai 
plenty of money to live upon and tc 
support his family In a manner thai

of being known a* a "trust-buster."
