President Taft has addressed a let
ter to Secretary Nagel on the behavior
of rrnsus supervisors, which la as ad
mirable epitome of the diittea which
come to the men selected to manage
the counting of the population. The
president endeavors to separate en-
dismissed. The supervisors are to be
strict in avoiding pressure on the
enumerators, clerks and other subor
dinates to assist any party, or any
candidate, in a primary or a general
erection. The president, who will be
fearlessly assisted by Secretary Nagel,
himself an advocate of business effi
ciency, proposes that the vast army of
census appointees shall not be used
to build up any political machine.
Mf. Taft disposes of one matter
which over-strict reformers might
make a subject of advice. He says
that the quickest and best way of se
lecting suitable supervision is to con
sult senators and congressmen in the
districts. That is not flawless civil
service reform, but It is common sense
and the plan has always been followed.
In turn the supervisors will consult,
it may be supposed, party leaders in
minor civil divisions concerning enu
merators and clerks. The president
does not Intend to ask Mr. Nagel to
make rules that will not be obeyed or
will provoke confusion. In fact, the
only criticism which justly applies to
the letter is that the language of in
hibition almost would prevent a super
visor or enumerator from taktpg the
ordinary citizen's ordinary Interest In
politics. "Any part in politics than
merely casting his vote". Is fixing
limits which permit the constitutional
privilege of free speech and little
more. ' But It can be safely assumed
that neither the president nor the sec
retary contemplates a bureaucratic
and mechanical rule of conduct. .They
only give notice that this Is a busi
ness affair, a taking of the census
and not an opportunity for political
boosting, or a reliance on favoritism.
It is of the first Importance that the
people have confidence in the good
faith and competence of the men who
make and tabulate the decennial
count. The letter is designed to pro
mote that kind of confidence. To the
extent that It is a specific instruction
to the secretary, it la a precaution and
a justification. Last Spring the secre
tary discovered certain conditions in
the census office which called for re
proof. This letter Is notice that the
payrolls of the office are not to be
stuffed with the names of political
favorites. Capacity and character
suitable to the work are to be the first
A sharp reduction ct a duty not needed
for protection doe not count for much In
the son erne of honest downward revision.
New York Independent.
Why not? Is it not a fact that the
demand for tariff revision, so far as
ustlfied, arose from the realisation
hat with changes In industrial condi
tions some of the duties had come to
be no longer needed for adequate pro
tection? The complaint was that the
big concerna controlling a large- part
of the traffic In their output were tak
ing advantage of the needlessly high
arlff schedules to make American
consumers pay more for the same
goods than they were willing to sell
them for In other countries.
The republican platform pledge on
tariff revision was for readjustment of
duties, not below the necessary line of
protection, but down to something
that would make up to our manufac
turers and producers approximately
the difference between the cost of
labor and materials here and abroad.
If a sharp reduction of duty not
needed for protection does not count
as downward revision, then the only
thing that would count would be to re
move duties that are needed for pro
tection, and tbua expose our Industries
to the very competition from which
the country wants them shielded.
If the people had demanded com
plete abolition of protective duties
they would have voted a democratic
president and congress into power. It
was largely because they did not want
to Invite such a disaster that they
voted a continuance of republican con
trol In national affairs.
Good Looks in Business.
New York and Chicago are debating
whether good looks help a young
woman to attain success In the busi
ness world. New York thinks, or
lets young women say in the papers,
that favoritism for good looks on the
part of employers or department store
managers draws a line-in favor of the
pretty girls in all the large employing
On the contrary the employers In
Chicago state emphatically that, while
there Is no discrimination against
good looks, the plain girls are gener
ally the ones who succeed. The rea
son is that a plain ghl haa more intel
ligence, takes more pains, dresses with
better taste and has much more agree
able manners. "When a girl - has
prettlne8S, she depends too much rm
It and does not get results or pleaae
our customers," said a department
store manager. The person In charge
of the operating force at the telephone
office used the name language. There
was no report for stenographers, but
It Is reasonable to suppose that the
employers of that clasa of women
have the same demand for results and
look at the subject in the same light.
This Is no topic over which to com
pare the pondering of New York and
Chicago. It Is a part, and no passing
phase, of a grat sociological subject.
But what good comes of talking about
what la not new. Good look do not
make employment and do not make
marriages, though nobody ever heard
of a woman who would deliberately
make herself ogly. Cleverness makes
many more successful saleswomen,
stenographers and wives than beauty,
and the most successful cleverness
comes In two branches, talking well
and dressing effectively. All the opin
ions of all the employers In Chicago
and New York would not change the
fact that from Esther Sumroerson to
Estaer the Queen the woman who
knows how to deal with people has the
advantage, for good looks are apt to
be of short life and to lack attraction,

The School Board.
A school board ticket is to be nomi
nated at today's primaries and
nomination on the republican ticket
will be practically equivalent to an
election. This year for the first time
the members of the Board of Educa
tion are to be chosen by wards, one
from each of the first four wards.
After careful Investigation of the list
of candidates filing in the various
wards we are convinced that these
selections are worthy of recommenda
tion: First Ward George H. 8chnell.
Second Ward Dr. E. Holovtchlner.
Third Ward Henry I. Plumb.
Fourth Ward Charles R. Courtney.
While the nominations are to be by
wards, the candidates are voted on
over the entire city. Do not fall to

The primary election today will
determine the make-up of the repub

while there are only a few contested

to present qualified and trustworthy
candidates, but also to strengthen the
ticket all along the line.

reasonably qualified, but the place is
a political one, and If party service

Two nominations are to be made for
county commissioner, one for the short
term and one for the long term. For
the long term the strong candidate
seems to be John A. Scott. Mr. Scott
Is a representative business man with
obvious qualifications. He Is not a
chronic office-seeker; he is not a man
out of a job; he has never failed in his
own business. He Is the kind of a
man who would be chosen director of
a big corporation spending a half mil
lion dollars a year and erecting a mil

SOT ALL. SMOOTH SAILING.
of Opposition to Income
That the' proposed Income tax amend
ment to the constitution will not have
clear nailing Is Indicated by the adjourn
ment of the Georgia state legislature with
out action thereon. . The reason given for
nonaction makes the latter almost equiva
lent to a negative vote. It was remarked
by the- leading members of the legislature
that the tate might -need to impoae an In
come tax Itself at sfltrie future time, and a
federal tax would prove a hindrance to
the carrying out of the state policy thus
foreshadowed. It was the supposed unan
imity of the south In favor of an Income
tax on which were based the hope of
getting a three-fourths ma.'orlty of the
states to concur In the proposed amend
ment. If only a few of the southern legis
latures should nonconcur the likelihood of
the adoption of the constitutional amend
ment would be very slim.
THE FARMER OK TODAY.
Real Industrial Monarch
In the continued rising tide of prosperity,
as announced In every trade and crop re
port, the center of Interest for the last few
months has been the tiller of the soil. From
being a figure regarded with mingled pity
and Impatience, in view of his downtrodden
and apparently apathetic condition, he bas
become an object of respectful attention.
so far as this country Is concerned, at least,
the "Angelus' and the "Man With the
Hoe" are portraitures of one who was,
rather than of a contemporary being, and
the "Old Homestead" promises henceforth
to appeal only to the reminiscent sentiment
that still finds pleasure In "Unole Turn's
Cabin" and other such presentations of
days that are past.
It may be worth while to consider the
reason, or, rather, reasons, for this change.
Foremost must be placed the fact that the
best and rlcheet of the vast public domains
of the country have been taken up. Much
government land is still unoccupied, but the
true natural farming country haa been
largely absorbed. The United States has
been open-banded In its polloy with regard
to its publls lands, and the agriculturists
of this and other countries have taken ad'
vantage of tbe liberality, until now there
Is not so much remaining to give away o.-
to part with for a nominal sum. Proof ot
this ia found in the Increased migration to
brltlsh Columbia. The fertility of Mani
toba's wheat lands lias long been known
but Americans are loath to leave their
native soil so long as equally good oppor
tunitles are found at home. Another proof
Is found in the Irrigation projects now
underway In the semlarld regions of the
west, the development ot which aa a prac
tlcal measure would not have appealed
atrongly to the farming element ao long aa
plenty of good land remained unentered In
the regions ot sufficient rainfall.
These facta being granted, the rapid en
hancement in the value of farm lands gen
erally in recent yeara ia easily understood
The western movement having been checked

valuable, and there la no reason to look

Before commenting on the lightning, let

so when you see It.
Rushvllle Recorder: Next Tuesday the

the time necessary to be devoted to policies

more of It. Five months Is too much time
to devote to men to fill public offices, no
matter how important those offices may
be. The Intent of the law In spreading the

to give the voters an opportunity to get

BEWARE! OP THE fl IT.
On of tn Effects of Bright eammrr
It Is about this time of the year that the
reflection of the sun shining on streets
and cement pavements begins to affect
people's facea. Unless one keeps the
thought tn mind, not to allow the face to
take a wrinkled expression, the sun squint
gets into the eyes, horizontal lines form
serosa the forehead and vertioul or "V"
shaped lines between the eyes. Often with
this triple formation of the upper part of
the face there cornea a corrugation of the
muscles and skin of the nose, and some
times a dropping of the jaw and opening
of the mouth.
Serious-minded people will ray that the
lines of the face denote character. Prob
ably they do to a large degree, but the sun
of summer and the desire to shade the
eyes from the disagreeable glare of the
stieet is responsible for many of them.
And the sun is not so much to blame for
some of the wrinkles as the fashionable
scowl on the faces of the young girls, a
troubled look, as If life were not all bright
and happy for them.
The scowl is the caprice of the time,
