"Th-'-re is nothing political In what

"I !:o!;ld Hot objeet to the jreiille

V'i!r.;o. "I do not know of any more

SVnator Hoke Smith of CJe-orIa has
been doin practically all the talking
in the s.-nate of late, and lie has not
been iloini: te.uoh at that. There was
a proposal l'or'n recess so as to al
low renators to o home for lho elec

Afte-r tlie president lssuel his
appeal for a Democratic congress, Ite
pitblican senators would not prmit a

prepared to say harsh things when the
si nate met. Senator Smith toeik It
upon Iiimself to see that tlu'.v elid noth

eieorjria senalor would make u point
of no ep'oruin. Kveryeme knew It was

Se-nator Knox of Pennsylvania will
probably resume his old place a?
chairman of the committee on rules
of tlie senate. "It is not much more
than being room clerk for the senate

Jn those either days. The rules com
mittee has charge of the assignment
of ooir.s to the different senators.

On several ejeca.-ions, says Popular
Science Monthly, when an exeetitive-'i-assistant
desired to cemverse with hl
superior the former was bu.-y on ti.e
telephone, so I;e had to wait.
To open the eloor every few minutes
for the purpoe. of looking in or to
have tho operator notify you when t'K
receiver hr.3 been hung up is'both i:U
noying and tinie-cnisun;ing. A private
concern has installed an inexpensive
device which eliminates tlie embar
rassment. The executive's telephone has an ex
tra connection which automat: cidly
lights a small blue light at the a--i-t-ant's
office when the former is using
his phone. Assoon as the executive
hangs up the receiver the light goes
out and the assistant knows that his
superior is accessible.
This elevice, which is very inexpen
sive, consists of two piece's connected
with wires which run through tho cord
to the assistant's office.

Tea Dealers Troubles.
Ten dealers claim' that since the be
ginning of the war their profits
have dwindled considerably. Since
1914 oe-ean freights have increased
more than COO per cent; and in ad
dition to the Increase In freight rnto3
there is a high rate of war insurance
quite apart from marine Insurance.
The cost of tea at the gardens In Cey
lon and India has also increased, prin
cipally because the British govern

A Canadian tea denier said lately that
tea consumers in Canada were better

Bees Save Sugar.
7n this year of war, with a short
age of sugar, more farmers will find
it profitable to keep bees,, and the
