There needs to be an economy of tlm

easy and too natural to let the othe

President Taft's message on th
subject of disturbing the Judiciary a
times when it is most needed Is clea
and emphatic. He considers the indc
pendence of the judges of the land c
far greater importance than the bei
eflts to be derived by a sparsely se
tied territory from statehood. As tlm
goes on even those who now dlsagre
with the president on his veto wl
understand the logic of his posltlo
and give It thelrendorsement.
There seems little doubt that tli
Canadians will pass the reclproclt

be a general election. There Is m
much danger , however , as to the r <
suits of the election. It Is an impor

cessfully , as a majority In both com
tries believe It will , It will be extein
ed. If it proves unsuccessful it wi
be abrogated. But in any event thei
will be an Increasing trade betwee
two peoples so alike in tastes and se
nrnted only by an imaginary line.

. That cholera scare , which only
month ago threatened New York a
the whole country , has subsided n
there Is no longer any fear of Its
vaslon this year. If we , as a. peep
have advanced In one way more th
another during recent years It Is
the care and protection of pub
health. It was not so long since grc
contagions of disease swept over t
country nnd thousands died from the
In n single season. A vessel bearl
yellow fever or cholera patients , co
ing into New York harbor or any otli
of the Atlantic ports , was n signal
general despair and alarm because
was accepted that the disease woi
spread and much sorrow ensue. Tl
year the cholera patients were tak
core of who arrived In New York , n
no contagion resulted. The count
owes a great deal not only to the fal
ful officials at the metropolis for thi
care nnd alertness but as well to t
thousands of medical men and heal
ifllcers and teachers and scientists
vho have been so effectively Instilling
he principles of modern hygiene Into
ho public mind In recent years.
There Is reason for special congrat-
ilatlon In the Increasing value and
llgnlty that Is being placed upon spe
cial preparation for the diplomatic
service of the United States. There
vns a time , we admit with shame ,
vhen diplomatic appointments were
landed out ns rewards for party ser
vice , with very little regard as to the
Itncss of the Individual for the post-
Ion. Those days are forever gone.
Ambitious young men realize the
change and are entering minor posl-
Ions In the legations nnd embassies
that they may by years of service be
come fitted for those of greater Im
portance. A successful diplomatist
mist bo n person ot exceptional ad-
Iress , educated , cultured , n linguist
and a compendium of general Informa
tion. Especially must he be familiar
with the manners , customs and gov
ernmental methods of the country to
which ho Is accredited. But it is all
worth while , for In American diplo
macy Is opportunity for n career of In
ternational prominence nnd celebrity.
Congress stands pat with President
Taft. The effort to override the pres
ident's veto on the wool bill has failed.
The president , in his message , points
out that the only Intelligent thing to
do Is to await n report of the tariff
commission , now making an Investi
gation on a scientific basis , Into the
tariff. To act hastily now , without
awaiting that report whlcli will be
available In December , would be a sil
ly play to the galleries and not con
sistent with wise statesmanship.
HERE'S A SUGGESTION.
There Is more human Interest In the
aeroplane today than in any other
line of activity. A number of airship
meets have been held In Nebraska ,
with varying success , but none that
has yet been held would In any way
detract from the Interest that would
center In a great airship exhibition in
Norfolk this fall. For a couple of
thousand dollars a line of flying ol
high order ought to be available , and
such a program might furnish the fea
ture of a fall festival which would
give to the people of Norfolk's terrl
tory the entertainment that they crave
once a year.
A famous band to make music and a
live stock show , in which fine spec !
mens of farm stock could be assein
bled , might also be drawing cards.
A POLITICAL LESSON.
As the balance of power , the insur
gents In congress have been carrying
things with a high hand. They have
been able to dictate either to the re
publicans or democrats , neither 01
whom could act without them. Bui
on Friday the regulars dcmonstratec
to the insurgents that If they care tc
be branded as republicans , and to re
celvo republican help , they must ap
predate the fact that , all alone , UK
Insurgent band Is a mighty small call
The republicans absented them
selves , leaving the insurgents and tin
democrats with whom they have beei
making love , together. Seeing the !
opportunity , the democrats cut loosi
from their affinity nnd began votini
through democratic measures. Thi
o Insurgents , opposed to the measures
found themselves outvoted and heir
less. They grilled the faithless demc
crats and uttered angry words agains
the designing republicans who hai
thus left them In the lurch.
All of which demonstrates that th
"balance of power , " if It wants to ge
anywhere , must be faithful either t
one side or the other In the fight that1

In many ways August Is the crownIng -
Ing month of the year. It IB n period
of fruitions. And yet there Is not that
approach of the cooler weather of Sep
tember that brings haunting remind-
crs of the decline of the year. August
Is the high tide of nature's llfo , the
ull rounded consummation of her tolls
nd her Joys , nnd as yet there Is no
Int of the Inevitable ebb.
To most people August Is an unpop-

And yet , Just as there are few people

lonlngs of their youth , even thougli
hat youth was gay with song and

Prof. Willis Moore , chief of th

bombshell Into the camp of the cor

alleged tendency to create freshets i

Ills statement as respects freshet
was less significant than it was gei

Moore took the ground that soil unde

laah of her eye , the dawn of her
emllo , the flutter of her nklrt , may
sway a man or notion moro than the

The Silken Cords of Love.
Say , girlie , if you know your power
over that young man you'd bo as-
( ounded. If ho truly loves you ho will
go through flro , snow and water for
you. In the full flush of courtship he
will do your will though the sky fall.
But it's his nature to bo both Dr.
Jekyl nnd Mr. Hyde. Ho will flatter
you , ho will give you handsome gifts ,
he will sacrifice his nil for , nnd the
nest moment ho will tempt you. Be
ing n man , ho craves ownership , but
you're not his property , oven though
a diamond glistens on your finger.
Stand by your colors. Prove to him
that you're sweet and modest and
clean. Draw your lino. Ho will not
ho dare not cross it It's your peril.
Ho will respect you for it Down
deep underneath you're the typo of
woman ho wants. Whatever or how
ever a man may feel after marriage ,
secretly before marriage he la delight
ed to feel that "that little girl" can
make him do anything. There's your
time , young woman. Consecrate the
rose on your cheek , the sparkle of your
eye , all the charms of womanhood
which he is so eager to possess. Make
him pay a price for them. Let that
price bo none otlicr than the upholding
of his nobler self.
Fish to Leave Alone.
Marriage at best Is uncertain , but
there's no use insisting on having n
rotten npplc. When you hear girls
say of n young follow , "Oh , my , ain't
ho just liTi'slstlhlo ? " "He don't care
how ho spends money on a girl so
long's hu shown her a good time"
tlmt'it a good t.vpo to leave alone. A
weak man needs a < ? much watching as
a bad one and does as much damage.
If you must marry him do It quick
before hr > goes to Jail or skips the
town. You don't want to bo disgraced
before you are married. Don't marry
a rake to reform him. It can't be done
except on the stage or in flctlon. If
he won't be decent for his own sake
and his mother's ho won't bo for yours.
There's no magic in a marriage cere
mony. You want to start a homo , not
a Keeley cure. Don't marry n scoffer
of religion. You don't want a fanatic
who is so pious no one can live with
him , nor do you want a sneering skep
tic. He's a shallow man who doesn't
respect the sacred things of another.
Don't elope. Occasionally parental
tyranny demands radical action , but
runaway marriages ninoty-nino out of
a hundred mean abandonment , dis
grace , divorce and hell , so the deser
tion and divorce judges sayy
Your Beau Ideal.
Of course you are seeking your ideal
and you will expect to find him until
you are thirty. Strange to say , you
would tire of him or ho of you before
the honeymoon would wane. What is
your ideal beauty ? Remember Ju
venal , "When the gods would torment
a woman they give her a handsome
husband ? " Besides the beauty man
will bo vain nnd selfish. Rave over
brains ? But he's a dull bookworm or
has nil the rasping Irritability of
genius. Remember Carlyle's Jane ?
The college athlete ? Next to society
divorces and the stage statistics show
the woman who marries an athlete is
most likely to apply for n divorce. The
soldier of fortune , dashing nnd hand
some ? But ho has a debonair way
of slipping off with some other roman
tic maiden , leaving unpaid hills , bro
ken hearts and unwelcome offspring.
Mighty queer , but the picture in the
comic papers , uproariously funny for
ngcs , of the man carrying the crying
baby is nearest the real ideal. It rep
resents the domestic spirit , the fellow
who loves home , willing to shnro the
trying things of a woman's llfo , the
man who loves you in eplto of your
faults and endures things for your own
dear sako. The other ideal , half dare
devil , half saint , part scholar , part Don
Cacaar , is Impossible and oilata only
