A Water Works Catechism.
Q. Why is the water .shut off for
sprinkling at'8 o'clock in the" morn
i A. Because the water in the stor
age reservoir Is insufficient. -
Q. Why is the water in the storage
reservolr'insufflclent after that early
A. Because with only one supply
main", from Florence it cannot be
filled faster than it is emptied. t
Q. Is there sufficient pumping ca
pacity at Florence and the Burt
street plant? ... , ,-.'..V'
A. Oh, yes, more than enough; the
trouble is lack of carrying capacity
in a single supply main. '
Q. Then with a standing offer for
five years from the water company
to ' put the main in for reimburse
ment of actual coat why waa it not
built long ago? ' -v
; A.; Because the Water board did.
not want it built, and would not ac
cept the offer. "
Q. ,Why wouldn't the Watert board
accept the offer?
i A. Because its hydraulic expert
member said that what was wanted
was not a new supply main, but an
additional storage reservoir.

Railway Wages Here' and Abroad.
After all isi said .of the higher
wages' and superior working' condi
tions of the American railway em
ploye as cbmpared with the . Euro
pean,; tie difference stands-out as a
distinct! tribute to greater '-'American
efficiency. ' Efficiency In any line of
business makes for better conditions
and wages as well as profits on In
vestment. Therefore,- It is entirely
out of the question to argue the com
parative merits of . American and Eu
pean railway operation. '.
. A few comparisons In wages here
and abroad are of Interest as show
ing the. great advantages our work
men enjoy. 'For 1910,'for Instance,
the average Majly compensation of
air classes of American railway em
ployes, according to the Bureau of
Railway Economics, was $2.23; In
the United Kingdom It was , f 1.05;
excluding supplementary allowances
negligibly affecting the average, it
was in Prussia-Hesse 81 cents and In
Austria 9 cents. The lowest paid em
ploye on an American railway, ac
cording tot the same authority the
ordinary trackman receives ? more
wages than many French railway em
ployes of much higher grade and
larger responsibilities. :
A long list of similar comparisons
would only emphasise what has been'
said. Of i course, living conditions,
which . are better Jn America, also
cost more, and something must be
allowed for that, but not enough,,
surely, to take up the difference.
American, labor of all classeSjla the
most productive and the best paid in
This la the season of omens. The poll-'
tlclans. Ured ot the strenuous expert
encea . of the convention weeks, have
fallen back on the study ot omens,
which is not too exciting exercise for
warm weather. Moat of the omen collec
tors appear to be operating for Wilson.
They have found out that candidates
whose surname end with the syllable
'on" have generally been successful, and
this discovery glvea them much comfort
Inevitably, as Governor Wilson has been
prealdsnt of well-known university, we
are treated to as many essays on the
scholar in politics" as If the title and
subject had not become a little time-worn.
In the matter of scholarship our pub
lic men have always stood well in com
parison with the statesmen of other na
tions. Governor Wilson does not lower
In Isolated grandeur because ot his learn
ing, nor because of the high educational
positions he has filled. Many of our
presidents have received liberal educa
tions, and several of them have been
scholars in the wide sense of the word.
These have not been pedants, but they
have had at their command varied learn
ing. Jefferson waa a man of many ac
complishments; Madison waa a learned
Hebraist; John Qulncy Adam seemed to
take all knowledge for his field of re
laxation. ' To the last of his Ufa ha de
lighted In the classics;- Monroe possessed
acquirements; Garfield was a student. No
less than seventeen of our presidents re
ceived the benefit of what we call "col
lege education." The two presidents,
however, whom all the world agrees
were supremely great, Washington and
Lincoln, never caw the interior of a col
lege as students. Thty ware educated In
the great university of the world. , Their
early book learning oam from reading
and re-reading the best English writers,
not so much of their time as ot their
fathers' time. Washington and Lincoln
each formed a splendid English style, and
Lincoln, In the Gettysburg address, rose
to classic purity of diction.
As for college presidents and college
professors, John Qulncy Adams was pro
fessor of rhetoric and belles lettres In
Harvard, and the lectures he delivered In
that capacity had a great vogue In their
time. That was long before he waa presi
dent, and he was appointed to the chair
while he was still this side of fory.
Among Garfield's honors may be "placed
the prealdenoy of an institution which
since his time has grown to collegiate
dimensions. Whan Garfield took Its presl-

A Pay-ai-You-Enter Show.
The most consistent thing the bull
moose party has yet done, is to make
Us forthcoming convention in Chi
oago a pay-as-you-enter show, with
prices. ranging from jio to 120 a
seat. A party financed by sucTr im
pecunlous millionaires as Perkins,
Munsey and the McCormlcks must
have some dependable means of rais-
ng the money to pay ' the hall rent
Besides, every ticket-holder may be
sure of getting his money's worth
But for the bull mooters,' what i
tame affair the republican national
convention at Chicago would have
been.' .Theirs has been and will be
a spectacular circus from the begin
nlng. There can be no lull in the
performance and the spectators will
not" have their attention diverted by
a multiplicity of acts, for this Is es
sentially a one-man and a one-ring
Institution. Pay yo'ur price and take
your choice of seats, and do not
waste pennies on peanuts, for there
will be no elephant to feed.

He brought to his labors so much en
thusiasm, to much scholarship, that he
gave to Hiram a power of attraction the
older institutions in Ohio soon sensed.
Hiram was sometimes called In those
days "college" and aomethnes "institute."
but it Is now and has been for more
than forty years, a full-fledged college
among the Institutions that are not great
In attendance but are respectable in
standing. President Garfield, as he was
than called, had to much Influence with
the young men of Hiram- in 1S61- that a
considerable contingent of the Forty-second
Ohio . regiment was made up of
Hiram-students, who followed "him into
the army. His career was typified by
the expression !'sword and gown," for
he was alike soldier and Instructor, and
he taught In the spirit expressed' In his
famous tribute to Mark Hopkins to the
effect that, given a log cabin with a
student at - one end of the bench, and

the truth that Whatever else have been
the shortcoming of our political leaders,
they have not lacked for liberal knowl

whom the general public do. not plape in

Into fields generally neglected by men
who are, ' havertheleas, entitled . to be
called students. The late Senator Davis
of Minnesota read Juvenal, the most vig
orous of the 'Roman satirists, in the or.

Many other scholars might be named In
running ever the list of American political
celebrities.. The scholarship of some ele
vated the entire tone of their careers.

CONSERVIN& THE FLOOD WATERS

No form of conservation enterpriie Is
of mors Interest, wider Importance or is
less popularly understood than that ot
conserving the floods. The progress of the
age, has. gone far. beyond the point at
which the recurrence, of floods in one
or another region of the country need
be looked upon as Inevitable. That the
mighty overflow that carry millions of
tons ot silt ;down the Mississippi te the
gulf could, be harnessed to good stead,
that the tremendous loss of fertile soil
could be saved, that the portlpns of ; the
Mississippi .valley that are brought ,un-
der- tribute by the raging overflows of
the river shd Its tributaries could be
wonderfully advanced In value, Is all In
dication of theH vast Importance of the
conservation of floods.-. - ;
Let "the floods of the Missouri be dis
tributed over the dry bench lands. Let
Kweea b built from Cairo to the gulf.
Millions ot Missouri lands would thereby
be cohverwd Into hay atfetchts that are
now given over to pasturage. Reservoirs
built to supplement the summer flow
would provide ample water to turn upon
the parched soil all along the line of the
Improvements, floods would be kept low
by the utilisation of the source supplies
for Irrigation and the hundreds of mil
lions of damage wrought from thia cause
would be saved. It is unscientific to ex
pend millions for the safety of certain
spots along the course of the Mississippi
and its tributaries and not to pay atten
tion to the tremendous loss of water and
great possibilities for damage found In
the condition of the , rivers at their
sources. The vast Increase of food-pro-ducting
reglone from the converting of
the flooded multi-million gores Into the
very best loam soils cannot be overesti
mated. Here Is a source of conservation
and of Intensive cultivation that -would
go far toward diminishing the high cost
of living. " '. ,
