Dun's Review makes some distlnc-
lions which require a powerful micro
scope for the ordinary man to dis
tinguish. For Instance , hero is a re
cent statement. "Improvement in the
structure of business is much more
pronounced than Improvement lu the
activity of business. "
The successful master of a business
must know it from the bottom to the
top. The college graduate who is not
afraid to put on overalls and go to
work in factory or machine shops ,
stands a far better chance than if he
draws back fearing that this would
lie an admission that his education
was a failure.

The new United States senator , E
D. Smith of South Carolina , pledgee

cotton by national legislation. Yoi

not even with the old law of suppl ;

that like the ten commandments , i

That there is n very widespread dc
sire in this state to stop the ravagei
of tuberculosis is shown by the Intro
duction of bills before the legislature
relating to its control , treatment am
prevention. The campaign of educe
tlon which has been carried on in nl
the larger cities of the state the pas
year against the great white plagu <
is bearing fruit.
Congressman Tawney has a plan b ;
which he thinks the Panama cann
will pay for Itself. The Suez conn
pays from $12,000,000 to $15,000,00
a year above the cost of maintenance
If a similar charge Is made by th
United States he figures that the tots
receipts will be at least $10,000,00
a year and that half of this amoun
can be saved to apply on paying Ir
terest and bonds.

Paris fashions decree the revival of
the "alms bag" which ladles of the
middle ages carried with them to hold
the money they gave to beggars. It is
really an 'outside pocket suspended
from the belt and decorated to suit
the fnncy of the wearer. It will bo n
relief to know that the ladles have
even one hung to them , but It will
not be a very secure place in which
to carry money or other valuables.

Ambassador Bryce says that "poll
tics Is an experimental science. " Then
Is a great volume of truth In thli
statomen made by Mr. Bryce who is i
life long student of government fron
the scientific as well as the practlca
side. In thus admitting that politics
the science of government , Is an es
perlmental science , he makes a com
plete answer to that coii6.ervat.lv

"That is merely experimental. "
Senator Flint has Introduced a bll
directing the secretary of war to es
tabllsh a line of steamers along th <
Pacific coast in connection with th
line of steamers along the Atlanti
coast operated by the Panama railroai
and appropriating $10,000,000 for sue ]
a lino. There Is no question abou
the need of such a line of steamers
but considering Senator Flint's clos
proximity to the Southern Pacific ger
era ! offices , itould be wise to lool
Into the requirements of the bill quit
carefully before endorsing it.
Notwlthstnndlng the passing of th
years the federal pension bill grow
and grows. Thirty years ago Generc
Garfleld , then a member of the hous (
expressed the opinion that the pei
sion list would never amount to mor
than $30,000,000 a year. He lived-
see it three times as much and no'
the senate has passed a bill carryin
$160,000,000 a year in Straight pension
and not Including the private pension
that are passed for the benefit c
those who cannot get in under th
general law. The statement was n
cently made by a member of the hous
that 70 per cent of the government' '
expenditures went for military costi
either past , present or future. Th
army , the navy and the pension list
are the heaviest loads the governmet
has to carry.
The chief argument of those oj
posed to tariff revision IB that ther
Is already a deficit , and they ask , ho1
is the deficit to be made up if th
customs , duties are lowered or n
moved. This argument has little fore
from the fact that there Is little d <
mand for a lowering of the tariff o
imports which now actually compel

revenue producers. It Is not th
prices on goods which are in con
petition with Imported goods , thi
people complain of , but of the tar !
which prohibits foreign competltlo

not revenue produceru. They can bo
made revenue producers , however , by
lowering the tariff to n point which
will admit foreign goods to come in
and pay the duty. The revenue

The new South American repuuilc
Is to have two capitals. Parliament
will meet at Capetown and the gover
nor-general and other executive of
ficers will live at Pretoria about 1,900
miles away. There was so keen a
rivalry between these two sections
thnt as compromise the honors were
divided. The British empire has
changed its policy since the colonial
days of jhe United States. Then It
tried coercion. Now It adopts sub
mission. All the great dependencies
make their own local laws. It holds
them in the empire by tics of senti
ment and not .by Iron bands of taxes
and harsh laws.
The Root waterways providing foi
the settlement of all present and fu
ture differences between Canada and
the United States Is likely to be re
jectcd by the Canadians because of the
provision which gave to the United
States 78,000 of the 100,000 cubic feel
of water per second flowing over the
falls at Sault Ste. Marie. The clalrr

of water was based upon the posltior
of the International boundary at thai
place. But It is a short sighted policj
to exasperate this near neighbor by re

The place where the first Baldwli
apple tree grew Is marked by a menu
ment. This first tree was a clianci
seedling that came to maturity on i
farm near Lowell , Mnss , about 1740
It was not until 1784 that Colonel Bald
win became interested in the apple
developed it and gave it his name. Tin
original tree lived till after' 1817 am
did not live in vain. For the Baldwli
apple Is one of the best.
It Is an evil day in any nation whei
it plots the destruction- Its great
est patriot. That Is what Russia 1i
doing with her most brilliant dlplo
mat , Count Witte. There Is not an
other Russian statesman who arouse !
the slightest admiration in tbe hear
of an American. But the world is glvei
to honoring the man who accompllshei
the Impossible , and that Is what Coun
Witte did in the treaty of Portsmouth

Witte returned with honor and sub
stantia } concessions from the victor
ious Japanese. Yet instead of givlni
him gratitude and honor , the Russiai
government has heaped every possible
itllgnlty upon him and sought for ai
excuse for his Imprisonhient , but hav <
never found a cause for which the ;
dared to lay hands on him , He live ;

why this country should ever have i

Very conflicting statements hav
been madeas to the results of woma
suffrage in the western states whlc !
, have for s"ome time granted wome :
the ballot , but the conclusions of
man like Judge Lindsay of the Denve
Juvenile court are especially valuabl
as he is a shrewd student of the sue
ject and has known it from the insld
the fourteen years It has been i :
effect in Colorado. He makes th
following1 summary of results in th
World's Work : "Respectable wome
do go to the polls. Forty-two pe
cent of the' state is female and a :
average of forty per cent of the totn
vote Is cast by women. The votoe o
women have not taken politics out c
the control of the corporations nor o
the bosses. But there has been n
chance to vote directly on this quei
tion. Fear of the women baa proveni
od the nomination of men of ba
morals and the women hare defeate
such men eren when nominated * oi
ticket * . Tho' et result * c
woman suffrage has not been very
mpresslve , yet in npno of thcso west
ern states is it looked upon as an ox-
icrlment No one suggests rcatrctlng
ho suffrage to males. It IB univor
ally accepted and considered right. "
THI3 FOURTH OF JULY.
Norfolk will celebrate the Fourth ol
July this year. And the sentiment ol
justness men at the Commercial
dub's quarterly meeting Thursdaj
light , favored a celebration of Indo
xMidcnco day every year.
Norfolk ought to celebrate tlu
'ourth ' of July just as regularly as the
day rolls around. The city should dc
this for the sake of entertaining at r
) lg , free , happy holiday the innnj
farmers and their families who live
iround this city. ' There Is no rcasoi
why Norfolk should not decide one *

For one reason or another the Fourtl

Norfolk depends to great extent
upon the farmers In this vicinity , fo
Its business. And these same farmer
are entitled , at the hands of Norfolk
to a joyous event each year in conncc
tion with the big national holiday.
It was the sense of the meeting tha
the celebration should be held wltli
out thought of monetary profit. Thing
should be free. Our farm friend
should be invited into town for tin
day and entertained royally , with Noi
folk people as .their hosts.
Norfolk owes It to herself and ti
her clientele to adopt such a plan.
