America, a World-Beater. - !
America has achieved a distinction
at Stockholm that Is worth while.
Her strong, agile, fleet-footed young
men have excelled the nations of the
world in the arena of the world at
man's game. This, the most pow-
erful of nations in peace and war,
in commerce and diplomacy, could
111 have afforded to take even second
rank in this' Olympic, and because
she was represented by the best type j
of sterling young manhood she was
saved from the sacrifice and kept in
first 'place. Our splendid athletes
have set a wholesome example of
leadership before an attentive world.
We. owe' them much for their
triumph, which Is really greater than
might have .been expected. , V
Of course, the United States is
getting used to excellence in sports
and athletics. And the best of such
excellence is that it cannot be
achieved without dint of right living,
so that a moral aspect attaches to
the. physical supremacy. It is said
that the ancient Greeks, after win
ning their Olympian triumphs, re
paired to the sequestered places
where exulting and adoring partisans
soothed the tired laurel crowned vic
tors with the sweet nectar of the
gods. But that unmade the victors.
American athletes are not achieving
physical fame at the expense of phy.
sical strength and mental poise. It
Is probable that the old Greek would
be a mere pigmy as compared with
our modern . American uiympian j
hero. 5 ' '
What is He Going to Do About Itt
Nebraska republicans are accorded
membership in the republican na
tional- committee with the purpose
and understanding that each mem
ber shall look after and actively pro
mote the interests of the party and
Its standard bearers In his state.
What is Nebraska's new member
of the national committee going to
do about it? 7. When he. asked for
votes for this position in the recent
primary, he sent personally signed
tetters broadcast In which he said
While I am a great admirer of Senator
La Follette, I am a warm supporter of
Colonel Roosevelt. However, I am first
republican, and whoever is nominated
will receive my hearty support if I am
chosen national committeeman.
Taft and Sherman were- nominated
by the same convention that made
the letter writer a member of the
national committee.
'Hearty support" does not mean
sitting still when a fight is on.
What is he going to do about it?
Practical Politics!
Although Mr. Belmont does not
Just retaember the exact amount he
contributed to the Parker campaign
of 1904, he is satisfied it was In the
neighborhood of r 1250,00.0, m Mr,
Ryan, Mr. Morgan and others doubt
less .did. as .well . by the democrats
that year as did Mr. Belmont. It
could not have been,' therefore, Im
practical politics that defeated Judge
Parker. And evidently If the astute
Roger Sullivan, has his say, im
practical politics Is not going to
obtrude itself this year to trip up
Prof. 'Wilson, guileless as he
may be at playing the game upon
purely practical lines. But his good
friend, Roger Sullivan, Is not and
there are others just as pragmatic
as Mr. Sullivan, who suggests a lit
tle pot of $1,000,000 to start with,
as a sort of bonus ot good faith, as
it ' were, to get the brethren with
grievances well In line for Wilson
and Marshall. V
A Jealous Senate.
The senate's adoption of the reso
lution denouncing "any attempt on
the part of the president to exercise
his office to influence a vote on ques
tions within the senate's exclusive
urlsdiction," undoubtedly has some
personal animus in it, but in the
broader light it is a protest against
the encroachment of executive au
thority upon legislative prerogatives,
tendency quite marked In late
years. It was most persistent our
lng the administration of President
Roosevelt, and President Taft,
.where he has followed it, has simply
acted in line ot precedent. , '
It Is possible to attach some Ire
to the resolution since It was Intro
duced by Senator Bailey, 'who may
have been seeking this means ot
evening up on the president for ad
vocating Lorlmer's expulsion. On
the other hand, Bailey has been one
of the most consistent sticklers for
senatorial prerogative and this ac
tion accords with his record.
Those republican senators who
under all circumstances, stood for
the aggressive Roosevelt policies and
therefore helped to bring about this
pressure by the executive on legis
lative authority, and who voted for
this ' resolution rebuking the presl
dent, are the ones most inconsistent

Wisdom of Solomon and Besearches of
New York
Prof. Metchnikoff has begged the re
porters not to speak of him aa a Jlephts
tophelea, or of his latest discovery as the
elixir of eternal youth. Alas, it becomes
evident only too soon that the now cele
brated glycobacter it not the magic rem
edy after which the heart has
lusted. The great scientist has sought
for years a weapon against Time, and the
hardening of the arteries. He has studied
the way of the lactic bacillus. He has
gone to the dog and considered his In
testines, and the only wisdom he has
gained is that the Injection of the "sugar
bacillus" into the human system will
stave of the advance ot old age, provided
and there's the rub; there always Is a
very Important, very onerous "provided"
to be dealt with.
If I should suddenly die tomorrow, says
Prof. Metchnikoff, it would not disprove
my theories, because I began late In life.
But the man who has barely reached mid
dle life might very properly begin with
every nope or arriving at the best results.
At the beginning of middle life to begin
preparation for old age. At 40 year to
begin shaping one's conduct so that one
may live to be 100 years old. No, this is
not Cagltostro's elixir, of which a drop
sends new fire through ' shrunken veins
and rears upright the collapsing frame.
It is simply a restatement In specific
terms of the old belief that eternal vig
ilance In the price of anything really
worth preserving, life like everything
else. '
Under these conditions the secret of
long life has never been withheld from
the knowledge of men. The author of
Proverbs long ago had hit upon numerous
ways of postponing the ravages of arterio
sclerosis. The pursuit of wlsdow will do
It. Fear of the Lord will do It Sub
mission to reproof will do It The prac
tice of mercy win do It This is not put
ting the case in biological terms; but the
highest biology today recognises the ex.
lstenee of the spiritual factor. "The cer
tain element on which the Russian sa
vant has counted," says' one writer of
Prof. Metchnikoff, "must not be over
lookedthe suggestion or moral Impres
sion which stimulate the organism. Suf
ferer from old age will receive with the
glycobacter some excellent advice on
regimen and digestive education, and the
aged will find themselves doing excel
lently.' Here Is the nasi for a real un
derstanding between the wisdom of Pas
teur and the wisdom of Proverbs. King
Solomon will readily meet Prof. Meachnl-
koff half-way. A diet of sour milk plus
the practice of charity; glycobacter re
inforced by keeping the mind on high

A Pari correspondent of the New
Tork Sun make the aulclde of a girl from
the American middle west, in Pari, the
text for an argument against the utter
folly of American parent who send their
daughters to Paris, without adequate
chaperonage, to attempt artistlo career.
He points out the fact that the Ameri
can girl who is left to her own devices
seek the. easy-going Paris i'penslon" be
cause the strictly respectable French
boarding housekeepers have French ideas
of now the "Jeune fllle should be pro
tected, and how her conduct should be
regulated, and these Idea clash with
American notions of liberty. In the free-
and-easy establishment the American girl
finds what cheap fiction ha taught her
to regard -as a truly Bohemian atmo
sphere. Eh may keep any company she
chooses, lead any life she .like, rove
through any - disreputable quarter ot
Paris, visit any questionable resort and
see life" the life that has been glossed
for tb immature and uninformed in

suicides. There are many cases, quite as
lamentable, of adaptation ot standards to
changed conditions resulting from "Bo
hemian" experience. And Parts returns

Successes In painting, sculpture, music.
literature and other branches of art are
few. The pathetic Bohemian art student
who starve in a garret and finally drink
the hemlock, misguided but uncompro
mising, when confession of failure might
bring relief from home In a rarer type
than the Bohemian whose remittances are
sufiolent and whose physical welfare is
guaranteed, but who does not become an
artist, and whose unfettered existence in
free-and-easy French boarding house
and Latin quarter society has an effect
that illustrates the fact that even an
American girl may not be turned at large
safely in a European city.
It was in Paris that the term "Bo
hemia," since such abused and such mis'
understood, originated. But Henri Mur-
ger's Bohemia Idealised, no doubt. In

tunlty here for the synthetic production
of a realy efficacious specific against old
age. But always there is presupposed a
patient spirit and long practice. The
pursuit ot wisdom and the cultivation of
the lactic bacillus must really begin at
the beginning of adult life.
Are men willing to have long life on
the terms? That Is the difficulty which
confronts the Parisian biologist as It
did the wise king of the Jews. In small
things, as In great, men will rarely sac

the past when, theoretically, everybody
admitted that long life is : a blessing.

ness endures that Is the essence of the
modern outlook upon life. Prof. MetchnI
koff would please hi generation by iso
lating the bacillus of energy rather than
the bacillus of long life. Most of us
would not know what to do with 100 years'
time on our hand. Most of, us feel no
enthusiasm at the prospect of a world
of centenarians. A world In which people
were so slow to die would destroy Lloyd
George' budgets by heaping up the ex
pendttur on eld-age pension and cutting
heavily Into the inheritance tax. In times
Ilk ours, when the duration - of social
philosophies and artistic theories Is meas
ured by single year and month almost
to live 100 years would be to follow up
forty year of excitement with sixty years
of headache.
No, the world today Is not Interested
In the prolongation of life. It would not
be willing to pay the price if the thing
were absolutely to be had. A small, old.
fashioned minority there may be to whom
a protracted healthy old age will appeal.
From them. Prof Metohnlkoff glyco
bacter and lactic bacillus will receive
respectful consideration. But even with
them, as we have said, the mere blologl
cal specific will not suffice. Before men
will attain their centenaries In consider
able numbers, some scientist will have
to inoculate them with the bacillus of
patient labor, of simple ideas, and of
plaeld emotions. . 1

the poet's prose in "Scenes de la Vie
de Boheme" was not exactly suitable
as a finishing school for the American
girl, brought up in the way she should
go and expected not to depart from it.
And too often all that the Bohemia of
the period in Paris means Is food and
lodging which would be scorned at home,
social acquaintances of a oaste that would
be Jooked down upon at home, and the
acquaintanceship with vice whose pro
gressive stages Pop depicted so aptly.
Perhaps the American students best fit
ted, by temperament and previous train
ing, thoroughly to enjoy the delights of
the Latin Quarter and feel no regret
even tf they do not become artists, are
the negroes, who are flocking there In
inceased numbers and receiving a cor
dial welcome from a considerable part
of the student population. The American
negro, is a true Bohemian, In Louisville
or Louisiana aa well as in the Latin
Quarter. He ean live in a loft and upon
a crust if need be, and gorge and splurge
If opportunity presents Itself. It is In
his blood to do so. He . can withstand
the shock of disappointment. His nature
is a shock absorber. He is perfectly at
home amid the most unconventional so
journers in the Latin Quarter. The so
cial circles la which he moved in
America were as unconventional as those
of any Utopia of artists ever pictured
by the pen of a novelist or the fond
Imagination ot an American schoolgirl.
For him the lights of Bohemia, that
prove false to many an ambitious ctudent
of art, shine true and provide a genial
radiance. The reception he Is accorded
leave nothing to regret save that there
may be nObody from New Orleans or
Charleston on hand to witness It and

No matter what Murger Bohemia may
have been, that ot the (Latin Quarter of

ambitious and cleanmlnded American girl
who-ltarns what there Is to learn about

to whom Its tawdries Is not tawdry.

Boston Transcript
I am the pregnant quake and stress
That shapes new worlds from films
I am the springs that upward press
Through rocky ledges to expire
In mists, whose life. In turn, doth pass
Into life giving herb and grass. .
That form the babe beneath the heart-
That feed the child upon tne nreast
And Urge the youth to go his way 7
From rosy east to golden west
'Mid broader views ot night and day.
I am the brooding underbought
That bids all thinking bring forth fruit
The hope that will not come to naught
But fearless treads the wreck -strewn'
Making man's foes ot time and spaca
Shrink 'neath the glory of Its face.
I am the faith that shall not wane
Mid any gloom of grief or pain ;'
That o'er the lids of dying eyes
Breathes wordless anthems of release.
And In the murk of starless skies
Makes silence but the song of peace!
