Another Endorsement
When the Roosevelt press bureau
called attention, to the tribute to
President Roosevelt contained in the
last republican platform upon which
President Taft waa elected. The Bee
dug np the laudatory endorsement ot
President Taft and his administra
tion embodied in tbe platform
adopted in tha New York state con
vention in 19 10, over which Colonel
Roosevelt presided and which he
completely dominated. Trumping
this card, several newspapers over In
Iowa have pointed out that th
eulogy of President Taft by Colonel
Roosevelt In tbe speech be delivered
at chairman of that convention ia
even more commendatory and em
phatic in approval, for this it what
be aaid:
We come here, feeling that be have the
light to appeal to the people from the
standpoint alike ot national ai.d stats
achievements, In the Isst eighteen
months a long list o( Important legisla
tion moat heartily to be recommended as
combining wisdom with progress has
been enacted by congress and approved
o President Taft The amendment to
the Interstate commerce law; tha begin
ning of a national legislative program
for the exercise of the taxing power in
connection with the big corporations
doing an Interststs business; the appoint
ment of a commlsalen to frame meas
ures that will do away with the evils of
overcapitalisation and Improper and ex
cessive Issue of stocks and bonds; the
law providing for publicity ot campaign
expenditures: the establishment of i a
maximum and minimum tariff provision
and tbe exceedingly able negotiation of
the Canadian and other treaties In con
nection therewith: the inauguration of
the policy of providing for a disinterested
revision of th tariff schedules through
a high elan commission of experts which
will treat each schedule, purely on Its
own merits, with a view to protecting
th consumer from excesstrs prices and
lo securing to ths American producer,
and particularly the American wags
worker, what wilt represent the differ
ence of the cost of production here aft
compared with the coat ef production in

upon all who succeeded In putting them
In their Present shape and upon the

It William Howard Taft waa th

If th record he made during hit

Illuminate some of the dark corners
if nothing else. It Is np to him aa
to whether he makes the moet of this
Stoppage of Waste.
Why not apply tbe same system of
economy and efficiency to th con
duct of tbe household aa large busi
ness concerns are applying to their
management? Have the people done
as much to shut off channel of waste
and extravagance aa they have of
complaining about the high cost of
living? There la no gainsaying that
our living cornea exceedingly high,
but neither la It risking much to aay
that the average family, could cut
down expense materially without de
priving themselves of necessary com
forts by devoting mora time and akill
to economy.
We might learn many lessons from
th great packing house managers.
They allow nothing about the carcass
of an animal to go to wast. They
even consume the blood, bones and
horns, when they have them, and on
packer ia on record aa testifying that
the by-products are producing tbe
largest revenues today. Anyway, the
problem of wast haa been solved.
Ther Is now no such thing aa waste
about a packing house. Waste Is a
problem for every home, especially
every one with hired help. Its pos
sibilities begin with taste and appe
tites: they go with the housewife's
orders to the grocer, th butcher, tbe
dry good mercbanta, with th bus-
band and with the children to all
their aourcea of aupply; they return
with them to their horn and keep
them constant company.
It would bo Interesting to find out
the value of the waste fn tha average
American family in the course of a
year, but the average American fam
ily goes on blissfully indifferent to
what it may be, playing an uneven
hand agalnat the manufacturer and
th merchant, wboae chlf business
it la to guard agalnat waste. The
scale of economy cannot be bal
anced that way. It may not be neces
sary to make over father's trousers
for Willi, albeit father, In many
cases, was brought up In that kind of
trousers, hut many another outlet of
reckless extravagance, In dress, eat
ing and other things, may b found.

Cutting- Out Personalities.
A while ago. Senator Dixon, as
manager for Colonel Roosevelt s
third term campaign. Issued a cer
tain ehalleage to Congressman Mo
Klnley, aa manager for President
Taft'a committee. Now the presi
dent, himself, has done a little chal
lenging oa hia, own account, at least
it may well be regarded as a chal
lenge, for, though not so intended,
It ahould have the effect of one. The
president haa asked hia campaign
representative to avoid personalities
and attacks. Mr. Taft wants to win,
but doe not want to win so badly
that be Is willing to stoop to vindica
tion to achieve it.
Ot course, while the president
takes this position Irrespective ot
what other may do, or have done, It
amounta to a challenge of his op
ponent sens of equal Justice and
the square deal, about which. In the
past, so much haa bea said. It
puts th question up to them very
flatly, as to what will be their at
titude? That Is Juat now a very
trite question. It Is going to be diffi
cult for tbe Roosevelt force to avoid
th appearance of making a personal
fight, tor th colonel's candidacy, It
seir. Is an Implied attack upon tbe
president, tor It rest upon a false
Impeachment of the president's good
faith In carrying out th party plate
form. Th president's Initiative In
this matter,' especially after his op
ponents had bogus their campaign
of personalities. Is moat commenda
ble and sure to make friends tor him.

I remember, I remember. In th house
where I was bora.
How father mad u all gal Bp at day
light every morn;
The slice of cold and greasy pork upon
my breaktact plate,
Tbe muddy coffee that I drank, the
soggy bread I ate.
I remember, 1 remember, how I trudged
a mile lo school.
And wu rapped acrosa the kunckles If I
broke ths slightest rule;
The birch above tbe teacher's desk, the
lightning In hi eye;
Th way he used to keep me la till stars
were la tbe sky.
I remember, t remember, kow la winters
long ago
I woke to find my attic bed half covered
up with enow, .
And kow the horns-mad socks Of blue
that patiently I wore
Wet knitted of th kind of stuff In
Nestor's shirt of yore.
I remember. I remember, bow we sat by
And vainly tried to see to do our lessons
And how before tbe glowing hearth from
time to time we turned.
Because, alas! our backs would frees the
while our faces burned.
I remember, I remember, how eur holi
days war few.
And father always found some chores we
had to stay snd do;
Ia hoeing corn and sawing wood we got
eur exercise.
And dad's old trousers tor us boys were
made a smaller else.
I remember, I remember, bow the sea
sons earn and went.
And we helped to reap the harvest, but
we nsvsr got a cent
I like to reooUect to all and Ulk of It, I
vow, .
But thank the' Lord with all my heart
those times are over now.
