This at least la the Interpretation
placed upon the situation by T. F.
Rturgess, editor of the Twentieth
Century Farmer, who has Just re
turned from a trip of over a month
throughout the east.
"People do not eat butter unless
they are prosperous," said Mr. Stur

Bryan Says Vote of
House Means Little
COLUMBUS. O., March 8. Commenting
on today's action of the house of repre
sentatives In tho armed ship controversy,
William J. Bryan, former secretary of
state, who discussed Militarism" at a
public meeting here tonight, said he did
rot believe the vote on tho McLemoro
resolution ' represents the sentiment of
congress on the actual Issue of warning
"The question was presented In such a
way that there U little significance In
the wU.'.'.iia-aald. "It doea oiofr repre
sent the' sentiment In congress as to the
wisdom of Americana traveling upon bel
ligerent merchantmen. Had this question
been presented and the opinion of con
gress asked upon It, there Is no doubt
that a majority in both senate and house
Would have expressed themselves In favor
of preventing Americans from traveling
Into the danger sones on belligerent ships.
If the action of congress helps the presi
dent to reach a peaceful settlement of the,
sontroversy, everybody will be happy."

"No but It didn't matter, because Just
then the c'oor opened and the good old
sink that ran the place came In. He sal.l
he'd heard enough of what was said to
realize that wo girls needed some help
and advice, and suggested that since Mr.
Pollock seemed determined to stay there,
that we might (so down to his office."
"Did you go?"
Yes. Mary quieted down, at the
presence of another man, and drying her
eyes went with him, saying frankly that
she and I wanted some work to pay our
board until we could hear from home.
"Did the' proprietor offer to help you?"
Amy hubbled with laughter. ."H did

The Judge laughed at the picture sho
conjured up, and Amy, blooming under
tho knowledge that she wu pleasing her
audience, turned towards him confl

"It's a good thing, your honor, that

Again her bubbling laugh rippled out,
followed by a guffaw of delight from
the listeners, but as If It were a signal.
the prosecutor leaped to his feet.
"Your Honor," he stormed, "1 object

"I think," said his honor, the ghost

"that the witness may go on with her

went to work. hey were all very decent,
especially to Mary, and everything was
fine. Then they they seemed to change
even to me. 1 had to give a pretty sharp
call-down to two or three of the sort of

look as If they had their trunk tucked In

lady said put me wise to the fact that
our characters weren't worth a two-cent

Mary to know, so I kept quiet till ths

had around, when the door Of the dining

cheap, flashy guy who was a regular
boarder came out of tho dining room,
looking sheepish and with one cheek
bright red and the other very pale. I've
seen a good smack make that kind of
complexion before, so I kind of waited
around to see what he would do."
"Did he leave the hotel V
"No. . He walked out Into the office and
across to where Dave Pollock was sitting
and flung himself Into a chair beside him.
At that I sort of got behind soma cur
tains and waited to hear what he said,
hut I needn't have bothered about hiding,
for he yelped loud enough to be heard
all the way to the kitchen. "
"Tan you tell ua what he said?"
"Yes. He ripped out a good round damn
or two; then he said, "Pay, look here,
from what you told me, that Mary Page
is no better than she should be, but
rrickey, she swung a right onto my Jaw

cause I tried to give her a kiss."
"Did Mr, . Pollock reply V
"No. First he looked as If he was going
to hand the chump one himself, then he
laughed as If he was satisfied with some
thing, and I ran up stains to Mary. She
was crying, and packing her grip, and
when I asked her what the row was
about, she said that she was going to
leave right then and there. She said that
for the, last two or three days she had
noticed a decided difference in tbe atti
tude of the men toward her, and that
at noon one of them bad insulted her and
she had slapped hi face. The worst of
It was, she said, the man aald that he
had been told that she wasn't so particu

she came from. Then I told her what
the landlady had said to me, but said
that I was pretty well wised up aa to who
was spreading the slander, and I thought
it was time we blew the old burg any
how." "Did the hotel proprietor make any ob
jections to your going?"
"Well, yea and no I haven't come to
that yet. When we went downstairs with
out suitcases In our hands tha proprietor's
wife was giving him an earful of what
she had heard about us, of how bad ra
were and all the rest, and Mr. Pollock,
was sitting there taking It all In, but
pretending to read. He Jumped up when
we came In sight, however, and started
to speak, but we pushed by him and I
you re-I dining room to settle It; but Mr. Pollock

a friend of ours, he would like to hesr
