Urgent Need of

Nothing has been moro effectively proved than that the Sherman

efforts to bring about a modificntion and put tho nation's laws and

structive legislation, is the president's recommendation about THE
NECESSITY OF ENACTING A FEDERAL CORPORATION

ALL CORPORATIONS doing nn interstnto business, nnd how few
do notl A law under which all such corporations might obtain n
national charter and which would provide for n rcgulnr nnd sufficing
publicity, an nccountnbility, in fnct, to -the public and tho government
for its cnpitnlizntion, its rnmificntions nnd its mnchinery" for control,
would bo welcome indeed.
A LAW WHICH WOULD AT ONCE IN ITS OPERATION CERTIFY
TO THE HONEST CONDUCT OF A CORPORATION JUST A3 NOR
MALLY A NATIONAL BANK 18 CERTIFIED TO BY IXS EXISTENCE
UNDER THE NATIONAL BANKING LAW WOULD BE OF INESTIMA
BLE VALUE TO THE CORPORATION AND ITS SHAREHOLDERS AS
WELL A8 TO THE COMMUNITY AT LARGE. IT WOULD LIFT A
GREAT BURDEN OFF THE CORPORATIONS AND WOULD LIFT A
LIKE BURDEN OFF THE PEOPLE.
How Religious People
May Uplift the Theater.
By the Rev. J. L. VAUGHN. Prieit and Playwright.
CHE tbenter is now held under suspicion by mnny English
spenking people. This is becauso thoy judge tho Btago by
tho evil influences which surround it. But lot mo tell you
f - it is wrong to judge any institution in thnt mnnnor. If wd
were to judgo every institution by tho ovil men and women who go
-into or out of it none would fnro so
Tho theater is tho playground of tho American people and ITS
GREATEST EDUCATIONAL FACTOR. Moro people nttend

How vnin it is to teach moralitv on 0110 dnv of tho week nnd lenvo tho
amusement of tho people to tho powers of hell on tho other six !
THE THEATER IS WHAT IT IS NOW BECAUSE THE MAN
AGERS WHO FEEL THE PULSE OF THE PEOPLE THROUGH THE
BOX OFFICE BELIEVE THEY ARE GIVING WHAT THE PEOPLE
WANT. BUT IF THE PEOPLE WHO NOW CONDEMN THE THEATER
WOULD GO TO IT AND DEMAND THE BEST THEY WOULD GET IT.
Actors do not want to put on sensual plays and melodrama and
cheap musical fnrces. But thoy got no encouragement to put on
moral plays. I blame tho clergy for much of this. They imngino
they should not go to tho theaters. They should sit in tho first row.
They should be where their parishioners nro. If tho theater is not
fit for me to nttend, my boys nnd girls should not be there. Tho shep
herd should bo with his flock. Thoro is no doubt in my mind thnt
NO PUBLIC INSTITUTION NEEDS RELIGIOUS INFLU
ENCE SO MUCH AS DOES THE THEATER.
If tho religious people would go to tbo thenters nnd demand good
plays instead of sneaking in behind tho pillnrs to look at trash, tho
managers would soon chango their bills. Then tho theater would be

Fixing the Responsibility For tho Lou
of Harpers Forry.
President Lincoln's Jokes, especially
when perpetrated In connection with
grnve matters, usually had a purpose
In them. After Loo hml taken Hnr
pcrs Ferry tho president, realizing how
grent a calamity !t was to tho north
ern arms, determined It possible to fix
the responsibility for tho loss of the
Ilnlleck was summoned, but did not
know where tho blamo lay. "Very
well," said Lincoln, "I'll ask General
Schenck." Tho latter could throw no
light upon tho question, further than
to say that he was not to blame. Mil
roy was tho next to bo called to tho
presence of the commnndcr In chief
and to enter n plea of "not guilty."
Hooker was next given 11 hearing, nnd
"Fighting Joe" made a very emphatic
disclaimer of nil responsibility.
Then the president assembled tho
four generals in his room nnd said to
them: "Gentlemen. Ilnrpers Ferry was
surrendered and nouo of you, it seems,
Is responsible. I nm very anxious to
discover tho mnn who Is." After strid
ing across the room several times tho
president suddenly threw up his bow
ed head nnd exclaimed: "I hnvo ltt I
know who Is responsible!"
"Who, Mr. President; who Is It?"
asked tho distinguished quartet as they
looked anxious, If not troubled.
"Gentlemen," said the president,
with a meaning twinkle In his eye,
"General Leo Is tho man."
There wns n lack of mirth In tho
laugh created, and the four generals
took their departure with a determina
tion that they would not ngaln bo
placed under suspicion.
Tasks Often Performed While
A psychologist was discussing
miracles of sleep.
"One can become so accustomed," ho
said, "to a monotonous task that ono
can fall asleep nnd still keep on work
ing. Thus In India thcro nro punk
coolies, men who turn a fan all night
long In the hot weather while their
English masters rest, nnd it Is not un
common for a punka cooly to acquire
tho knack of sleeping nt his task. On
and on he sleeps through tho hot, per
fumed hours of tho Indian night, but
his hand mechanically and steadily
turns tho punka pulley.
"Men havo composed great literary
works In their sleep. Coleridge's 'Ku
bla Khan' Is the most famous oxamplo
of this; but, then, Colcrldgo was a
morphlnomanlac, and his sleep was
scarcely natural. But R. L. Stevenson,
Corelll nnd Longfellow have also dono
good work while sleeping.
"Divers sometimes fall asleep deep
down in the sea, but somo unknown
part of their brain keeps watch, and
at the proper moment, though nsjoop,
they give tho order to bo hauled up.
This is a good deal llko tho miracle
that hnppens to all of us tho tnlraclo
whereby if we tell ourselves on retir
ing that wo must wako nt 7 wo In
variably do wako at that hour how
or why It is impossible to say. Somo
part of us watches, works, keeps
awake all night, so that nt 7 it may

In a certain Sunday school n little
girl told the story of Solomon and the
disputing mothers in this wise: "Solo

two women went to him, quarreling
about a baby. Ono woman said, 'This

said, 'No, 'taln't; It's mine But Solo

any Society Islander ever went through

a wreath of flowers on his head or a
