MAN'S HEAD IS PIGEONHOLED.
"A man's head is a dome of pigeon
holes," said George Edgar Vincent,
dean of the faculties at the University
of Chicago and president-elect of the
University of Minnesota, recently
while speaking to an organization of
business men. "Each idea is put away
in a separate pigeon hole. Some
heads contain many pigeon holes;
others contain only a few.
"While man's head is a battlement
of pigeon holes," Doctor Vincent con
tinued, "life is many things. It is a
stage upon which each individual is
cast for a part; it is a highway along
which individuals travel, some afoot,
others whisking by in limousines and
touring cars, leaving behind them an
odor of sanctity and gasoline. Life is
also a battle and it is a school, often
called the university of hard knocks.
And it is a game in which we all are
players. Some are sports; others are
sportsmen. A sport plays for himself;
a sportsman plays for his team.
Sports complain of bad umpiring in
the game of life; the sportsmen never
complain. With them it all comes
with the game-" From the Chicago
VIEW FROM BALLOON BASKET.
We could hear the patter of the
hoofs of horses apparently chasing
after us across pasture fields, instead
of running from us. Chickens and
pigs, however, exhibited their usual
panic with noisy sounds and frantic
rnLiug in ail directions to escape the
great hawk which, no doubt, they
thought was going to get them. At
midnight we were over McDouough
county, Illinois; at 1 o'clock, Warren
county, and crossed the river near a
small canal. Ato o'clock, when over
Whiteside county, some people rushed
out of a house and exclaimed: "For
the land's sake! Look at the balloon
right over our heads!" We called out
a "Good night" mn we disappeared
from their view.
At four o'clock the dawn appeared
and birds began to sing. Ilawley was
asleep. We had used no ballast since
S o'clock in the evening. "Look at it
go!" came up from below as we sped
over Stephenson county, near Ilidot.
We were pulling around more to the
east and slightly higher, being at an
elevation of from 700 to 800 feet. The
sun came to us at :1 1 while we were
crossing the -tate line into Wisconsin
below Newark, Rock count'. We
saw Janesville, and at 7:40 were near
Whitewater, where we learned that
another balloon had passed an hour
before. With the heat of the sun we
rose rapidly to 2,700 and 3,000 feet,
and were going east and a little toward
northeast We had used only three
sacks of ballast and were in fine shape.
At i) o'clock we were over Waukesha,
the smoke on the ground drifting
northeast, as was the case with us. At
0:40 Lake Michigan came into sight,
and at 10:10 of the morning of October
18 we passed out over the lake at an
altitude of 2,500 feet. For some rea
son the balloon began to descend; per
haps the gas condensed over the water.
In twenty minutes our drag rope,
which we cast over for the first time,
touched water. We were going at a
good speed of at least twenty miles an
hour. The drag rope danced along,
keeping the balloon in perfect equilib
rium, inis made us tbiuk oi waiter
Wellman, who, we knew, had started
to cross the ocean, and we wondered
what his fortune was at that moment.
Milwaukee was just to the south of
us, but we could not see it on account
of a haze. Our direction changed to
due north and a strong drift toward
the land cut short our delightful ex
perience, the first for both Mr. Hawley
and me, of guideroping over the water.
At the shore we had to throw out bal
last to lift the balloon and guiderope
over the high bank of the lake. We
came ashore at Grafton, Ozaukee
county, south of Port Washington, and
shortly rose to 2,500, and then to 5,500
feet, on account of the loss of ballast I
We got the east drift again and went I
out over the lake for the second time.
At 11:20 we saw a steamer put out
from the breakwater and head for the
balloon, in what we took for a kindly
offer of assistance, since they soon
turned back. We could see many
steamers and sailing vessels, among
them a revenue cutter, which stopped
and saluted as as we passed, we waving
down to them.
At 12:50 the east shore of Lake
Michigan came into view. We could
almost see both shores from our posi
tion at an altitude of 5,700 feet Flies
took passage with us in the basket and
buzzed about our luncheon, just as at
home. At l:o0 we passed a car ferry
steamer and soon were off Point Sable,
with Ludington in clear sight, with its
arrowhead breakwater, also Hamlin
Lake and tho lighthouse on the point,
with its black and white sections.

HIGH COST OF EXPRESSAGE.
There are two ways that the express
business of this country could be con
ducted to the great saving of money to
the people. Either plan would elimin
ate the express companies as burden
In view of the enormous profits of
the express companies, as brought to
light by various means, more especially
recent investigations by the Interstate
Commerce Commission, it would be
possible for the railroads to handle all
the express business themselves, make
larger profits than they now make out
of the returns made to them by the
express companies, pay higher wages
and yet make much lower rates. For,
bear in mind, the profits of the express
companies, in many instances, are so
high as to constitute a scandal, con
sidering that these companies are en
gaged in a public service.
But it is not certain that the rail
roads are getting less than they deserve.
They may be getting more than a fair
return for their service to the express
companies, even if they do not get a
fair division of the profits. So, sup
pose that the government were to take
over the express business, either as a
separate thing or as a part of the pas
tal service, in the nature of the pro
posed parcels post, and suppose that
the government should operate this
business as it does the postal service
at no more than cost then the rail
roads would be paid a fair return for
the carrying and the people would
save, in reductions in rates, all the
enormous profits that are now made by
"the express companies.
On this plan the railroads would be
adequately paid and the people would
gain much in lower rates. The only
losers would be the men mostly
favored railroad officials who now
compose the stockholders of the ex
press companies. These stockholders
certainly deserve no especial consider
ation. They have abused a privilege.
They have used and abused the public.
They have taken over the most pro
ductive department of transportation
and made the public pay grossly ex
cessive rates to them. Aud it miis-t
always be remembered that the rail
roads have no charter authority for
thus farming out a part of their busi
ness. They are chartered to do all the
carrying. Kansas City Star.
PROFESSORS IN POLITICS.
It is to lie observed with pleasure
that the boes of the New Jersey dem
ocracy comes back at its leader with
businesslike vigor. Not that it is so
pleasurable to have the late president
of Princeton called a muffled liar.
Short and sharp words are preferable
to short and ugly ones. But a little
trying in the fire of real politics is
necessary before we can decide whether
Dr. Wilson is what we need for presi
dent of the United States. James
Smith, jr., is a master of arts in the
school of political bossism. Woodrow
Wilson is a doctor of philosophy in the
school of political leadership. Rightly
viewed the clash of these champions
has more dramatic and historical inter
est than anything that happened last
Fourth of July.
Higher education is on trial. Mr.
Wilson is fighting for the honor of the
white race of politicians. If he is
knocked out, every moving picture
show will be a school of the black art
in politics. But if he is to be knocked
out, let it be now and not later when
more depends upon him.
People with any knowledge of the
work of a college president will expect
him to win, or at least wage a drawn
battle. A man who can maintain
peace in a college faculty and come out
whole cannot be a failure at managing
a legislature. A man who can preside
over a student body without an occa
sional hanging in effigy should have no
trouble to keep the people at his back
when he mounts the desk of state. A
man who can keep a college chest
clinking will not frighten business when
he goes reforming. He will make no
"breaks," not if he has manBged a uni
versity half a year without losing his
head. He will not lose patience and
resign, not after getting along with
boards of trustees for any length of time.
In truth, the trade of college president
teems a perfect training for politics.
That more of them haven't graduated
into statesmanship must be dne to the
law of supply and demand. Good col
lege presidents are harder to find than
good statesmen. State Journal.
MARK TWAIN'S PLAYGROUND.
Of the many cities in the United
States which have called "Mark
Twain" their own, none feels towards
him as great a depth of tenderness as
Hannibal. The citizens of this river
side town knew Sam the old boys
over there never call him Mark Twain
as a youngster. They saw all hia frail
ties and they loved him none the less
for them. The only thing they have
.against the great humorist is that he
did not return to them in his declining
years, and sit with them on the river
front aud swap yarns of the long ago.
Mark Twain, soon after his folks lo
cated in Hannibal, was sent to the log
schoolhouse in the park. Dr. Buck
Brown, a much older man than Sam
was, who is yet living in the enjoyment
of gooil health, attended that log
schoolhouse and was in some of Sam's
classes. He was asked if he had de
tected any latent signs of genius in his
schoolmate. The old gentleman scrat
ched his head and studied the floor.
"I have often thought of that," he
remarked slowly, "and it seems like I
ought to be able to say yes, but the
cold truth is that I don't remember
that Sam ever gave the slightest hint
of a career that would set the world on
fire. Why, he wasn't e?en bad. He
says he was, I know, but I never caught
him at any tricks. We did have a
bright lad in our school then, Sam
Raymond by name, and whenever the
teacher wanted to show off to visitors
she would always put Sam up at the
board to work examples or make him
recite "The Boy Stow! on the Burn
ing Deck. The visitors always clap
ped their hands and said that one of
these days Raymond would certainly
iaud in congress or some place. I
think he became a tramp printer, and
that's the last I ever heard of him."
Hannibal and the adjacent country
seems to have been constructed by the
master architect in accordance with
the wishes of youthful spirits. There
are at least one hundred ways to get
killed within a quarter of a mile of the
square. There is Lovers' Leap, tower
ing one hundred feet or so above the
railroad yards, offering a constant and
almost irresistible temptation to jump
off. It is no trick at all to get lost in
"Tom and Becky's Cave," to wander
about in the gloomy avenues for miles
and miles and then to die gloriously of
starvation. The river is alluring and
treacherous. There are delightful
whirlpools aud eddies, where the
swimmer sinks to rise no more. Be
hind the southern bluffs are admirable
jungles and hiding places for pirates
ami outlaws of all descriptions. Sam
himself was the captain of the several
bandit gangs operating in the neigh
borhood, and he frankly put the history
of them in his books.
When Mark Twain rediscovered his
old playground, thirty years after he
had left it. he iiad become famous as
a writer aud all of the old boys turned
out to do him honor. They proudly
showed him the immense hotel on
Broadway, which they named after
him. At that time it was the most im
posing buildiug in Hannibal. The
humorist looked at it thoughtfully,
and then studied the surroundings.
"They had to fill np Bear Creek to
build this house here," he said; "its a
great pity; that used to be one of the
best fishing places in these parts."
On that occasion the humorist told
this story of an incident that occured
just east of the big hotel.
"Bad as they have made me out
since I left here, I want to say that I
never stole anything, no matter how
many scraps I got into. I expect the
reason you folks have been slandering
my memory during my absence is be
cause of this part of my boyhood his
tory. One day a crowd of us boys
wanted to go down to the island to play
buccaneers or something like that It
was. necessary to have a boat There
were all sorts of skiffs along the river
front, but we were to honest to borrow
any of them. You see, they were
chained to stakes and Dad locked.
While looking around we observed a
mariner coming down the river in a
low rakish yawl of the kind pirates
used. He tied to a stake and went up
in town for a load of bilge water. We
could easily have taken his boat with
out his knowing a thing about it
But we were not that sort All of us
went to Sunday school when we had
to and even stayed to church once
or twice a yi or when our folks were
"So we went into a boatbouse where
were stored some brushes and a can
of bright red paint. Inside of ten
minutes we had that yawl looking like
a fiery sea-serpent. We hid behind a
pile of lumber to await the mariner.
Pretty soon he came staggering down,
and when he saw that red boat there
he sat on the bank and mopped his
forehead. We could hear him mum
bling as he tried to figure it out.
" 'If zat's my szbip,' he said, 'shen I
must be awful drank. If I ain't
drunk, shumbody has sthole my szhip.
Guess I'm sober, cosh I know where I
am at. Don't she no way round zat'
"His brow cleared as if the logic had
sustained his reputation for sobriety
Then he zigzagged back to town and
we boys, with quiet conscience, seized
that flamming craft and had a good
time down on the island."
On the occasion of his last visit to
Hannibal Mark Twain was bending
somewhat beneath his years. The old
chums rallied around him as they al
ways did. It was Sunday, and in spite
of his boyhood's reluctance to attend
Sunday school, he consented to go to
one which was being conducted in a
new church on the site of the building
which had figured so extensively in
"Tom Sawyer." The humorist was
invited by the superintendent to ad
dress the scholars.
"He never looked more solemn in
all his life," said George A. Mahan, an
attorney of Hannibal, who is a great
aJmirer of Mark Twain. "When the
youthful audience saw that somber
face they began to look grave. No
humor could possibly emanate from
that funeral countenance, they thou
ght " 'It seems to me but yesterday
when I attended this same school,' said
Mr. Clemens impressively; 'yet the re
cord of my whitening locks convinces
me that it must have been long ago.
It is a sad reflection.' A long pause.
'And yet things haven't changed so
very much. You young folks look
just the same as did the young folks
with whom I went to school. On look
ing at you a little closer, however, I
fancy that there has Iieen some altera
tion the girls seem to be a heap sight
prettier than the girls of my time, and
the boys' looking about as if scrutin
izing each individual face the boys
are a heap sight homelier!' "
Many of his old playmates still live
in Hannibal. Some of them are older
than Mark Twain. Among them are
A. R. Levering, president of the
Farmers and Merchants Bank; Col.
John L. Robards, who was Missouri's
youngest '49er; Joe Tisdale, a little old
gentleman, who prides himself on the
fact that he was "cigar maker to Mark
Twain;" Maj. Frank M. Daulton, a
comrade of the "case;" "Doc Buck"
Brown, schoolmate in the old log
"academy" on the central street, and
Mrs. Laura Frazer, who was the origi
nal of "Becky Thatcher," the sweet
heart of "Tom Sawyer."
These people, all of whom are yet
active in some industry, are at the
head of a movement to erect an impos
ing statue of Mark Twain on the sum
mit of Lovers' Leap. Electric lights
will bring the statue out in spectacular
relief at night, thus serving the pur
pose of a lighthouse, a friendly hand to
assist the pilots of the river safely into
port The idea is a good one. No
other writer did so much to make the
Mississippi River known abroad as
did Mark Twain. As a pilot he studi
ed and learned its every mood, and
loved it as a patriotic soldier loves his
country and his king. The German
emperor once told Mr. Clemens that
of all his works he was interested most
iu "Life on the Mississippi."
The playground about Loyers' Leap
has recently been made into a magnifi
cent park; a broad winding driveway,
bordered with electric lights, leatls'up
to the crest Thousands of dollars
have been spent in this improvement
in memory of the dead author. It was
over these hills and bluffs that inspira
tion came to him. Rough, rugged and
wrathful, they contributed the charm
of danger to stimulate his imagination.

Edgar White of Macon. Mo., for the
Westminister Gazette, London.)

Did you ever have the experience of
walking down Main street with a man
who Is running for office? All the time
he Is bowing right and left to people
you meet Several times In a block he
will stop to shake hands with au ac
quaintance. "You seem to know every one," you
say to him almost enviously.
"That's right" be replies, not with
out some pride. "I guess I do know
everybody worth knowing."
Yet how many people does he know?
How many people do you know your
self? Did you ever try to figure It out?
What proportion of the people in the
United States do yon know? Certainly
you don't know the one-hundreth part
of them. Even the president of the
United States doesn't and couldn't If

a host of new acquaintances every day.
To know the one-hundredth part of
the people In this country would be to
know in the neighborhood of a million
persons. No; It is perfectly safe to say
that there Is no person In the whole
world that knows a million other per
sons well enough to call each of them
by name. Think what a million means!
Suppose you said the names of all the
people you know as fast as you could.
If you could enunciate twenty names
a minute you would be doing marvel
onsly well. Even at that rate, working
steadily eight hours a day, it would
take you nearly four months Just to

self sitting In the railroad station at
Providence watching the people come

test, for unless you live in Providence
you do not know as many people there
as in the city in which you live. Sit

church fair week, when you meet a
lot of people, so that two a week is a
fair average. You have been meeting
people, say, for twenty-five years.
That's 2,500, Isn't it?
Is It possible that you know only
2,500 people? You thought the num

But hold on. You don't know nearly
that many. There are lots and lots
of people whom you knew twenty
years ago that you don't know now.
You cannot even remember their
names or what they looked like.
Just sit down and try to remember
the names of all the boys and girls
that were in the same room in the
public school with you. You cannot
remember half of them or a third of
them or a fifth of them. It is safe to
say that of every two persons you
met In all your life you have forgotten
one. The chances are that the num

nearer 1,000 than it is 2,000.

Evolution of tho Idea of "an Icebox on
The refrigerator car was never in

In June of that year the first refrig

pally to the fact that the farmers near
Ogdensburg. who made a great ileal
of butter, were unabte to ship It ex
