GOVERNOR COX'S REPLIES.
First of all,' we want to thank Governor Cox
for recommending to his hearers that thev read
The Bee. It is a good practice, and the" gov
ernor s advice is quite in line with The Bee's
policy. Tim paper is read consistently and reg
ularly oy the enlightened, but it also strives per-
sistently to reach those sitting in darkness.
" . Governor Cox asks if the editor of The Bee
knows that Senator Harding is a brewer. The
editor does not, but, on the contrary, knows
that Mr. Harding never was a brewer; he
owned at one time a few shares in a small
brewery, which he disposed of long before pro
hibition was put into the law but not into effect
in Ohio. Possession of these shares for a short
time no more made the senator a brewer than
ownership of shares in a shoe factory make a
man a shoemaker.
Governor Cox says he does not approve of
) all that Attorney General Palmer or Postmaster
General Burleson have done. He does not
specify the acts he would condemn, but as the
One was an active candidate for the nomination
at San Francisco and as the other was an ener
getic supporter oi Mr. McAdoo, it is not hard
io locate a possible cause of the governor's dis
pleasure. By the way, the democratic platform,
to which the governor so lovingly refers, says,
defending' the postmaster general:
No utterance .from any quarter has been
assailed, and no publication has been re
pressed, which has not been animated by
treasonable purpose and directed against the
nation's peace, order and security in time of
Since this assertion was promulgated, the
supreme court of the District of Columbia
has compelled the postmaster general to restore
the privileges of the mail to a New York pub
lication to which these privileges had been de
nied for more than two years, holding that the
.head of the Postoffice department had exceeded
his authority during all that time.
In regard to Armenia, the governor says
hat 'was disposed of by the platform. It was,
in this fashion:
We express our deep and earnest sympathy
for the unfortunate people of Armenia and we
believe that our government, consistent' with
its corstitution and principle, should render
every possible and proper aid to them in their
, efforts to establish and maintain a govern
ment of their own. j
What does that mean? We tried to get Gov
ernor Cox to tell us, but he refers us to the plat
form. President Wilson thinks that "every pos
sible and proper aid" includes acceptance of the
mandate from the League of Nations. Governor
Cox says he is "going Sn" and that means our
country will be bound to accept that mandate
with all it implies. A competent authority in-
quired on behalf of the United States and re
ported it would require the presence of 50,000
American soldiers and the expenditure of $150,-
000,000 for the first year of such occupancy. In
passing, it is comforting to note that even in
this matter the democrats exhibit an inclination
to submit to the Constitution of the United
States. It indicates that the donkey may yet re
turn to normalcy.
As to Creel, while the American people re
main familiar with his unspeakable Fourth of
July hoax, to which he signed the name of 'the
Secretary of the Navy, with that gentleman s ap
oarent approval, so long will he be an issue.
The public is not so ill-informed on the topic
as the governor would like to make St appear,
and they do resent the fact that they were tea
cn falsehoods by a man who was retained in
office by the president after his lies had been
challenged and exposed, not once but many
finvmnr Cnx's reolies are about what
might, have been expected from the platform on
which he rests his case, shitty, evasive, ana ae-
cidedly unsatisfactory to one who is seeking
only the truth.
King of Spain Seta the Pace.
.The "shimmy" has hit Spain. The fandango,
the valse despacio, all the alluring and dreamy
things, castanets and guitar, the stunts of Car
men and of Carmencita, native to the Iberian
peninsula, are as nothing compared to the new
craze. Only they do not call it by the name
familiar over here. 1 It is given a more sonorous
title, which, freely translated sounds something
like "Spanishiver." 'Oh, very well; "a rose by
any other name would smell as sweet." The big
point is that they .are all doing it. King AJfonso
learned it from a charming duchess, and pro
ceeded at once to teach it to everybody who
would accept instruction from his royal person
age, thereby proving himself to be what the
world has thought of him ever sinee the war
broke out, a regular fellow.
Just as the tango was invented by the guachos
of the Argentinian pampas, and introduced into
this country via the "Barbary Coast," from
whence came also the "Bunny Hug," the "Gris
tly Bear and other forms of Terpsichorean
fantasy, to mount to the lofty heights of elite
aha exclusive society, so has the "shimmy," the
origin of .which is unknown, but the nature of
which asily suggests its source, now attained
whatever of respectability royal notice, patronage
and indulgence can bestow . upon it It may
never again be said to be entirely declasse, but
that willjget it nothing from the vigilant censors
tinder the auspices of the Welfare board. How
ever, the light and lithe young persons who feet
the impulse of, "jaia" stealing over them, cours
taw lake fire though their veins, will "shake a
wicked shoulder" now and then, ind maybe

The Second Wife.
naving a secona wne is a novel exoerience:
being one is another. The novelists have at
tempted, with more or less success, to write
human's nature's reactions to second marriages,
but perhapsnone of them have been wholly
true to actual experience. It is not unlikely
that no two instances ever ran parallel, although
human emotions and feelings in similar circum
stances are strikingly similar.
But there is one thing most women believe,
which is that second wives have an easier time
and are more generously treated than their
predecessors. This may be, perhaps is, because
the first wife usually undergoes the economies,
the sacrifices, the hard work, necessary to put
the marriage partnership on a prosperous living
level. Then if death comes to her, and the
bereaved husband seeks a second mate to share
his worldly goods, a state of affairs follows
which is touchingly described by the Hastings
Tribune in the lines which follow, under the title
"The Second Wife."
I went Into the farmhouse where she lived
Those many years.
I saw the bareness of her hidden life,
The stifled tears.
I opened wide the closet where still hung
The dresses patched.
With trembling hands I shook my own
They scarcely matched.
I never knew her, but I feel her come
To every door.
No matter where I go I feel that she
was there before.
She worked and skimped and saved to buy
Slaved all her life.
And left It prosperous and paid for now, for me,
The second wire. .
Whence it appears that the second wife has
some things to think about as well as her hus
band to whom comparisons must come during
his second venture.- As a rule, the second mar
riage seems to have hazards and liabilities un
known to the first, when the initial experience
has been a: happy one. Certainly "marrying
again," if it is to prove successful, requires pro
found study of the very first principles of human
nature .along with a deal of tolerance, of for
getfulness, and of practical common sense. Too
often the twice married man or woman, how
ever blessed with abundant means, looks back to
years gone by in many a saddened hour. Only
those who possess the consciousness of having
been loyal and generous, loving and consid
erate, of the first partner, have any prospect for
a really happy1 second married life, would be
College Boys' Deviltry. '
College boy pranks, often grotesque and ex
travagant, sometimes amusing and not mtre-
quently harmful, never cease to show ingenuity
and variety. The latest one we have noticed is
in vogue in an Ohio college where the fresh
men and sophomores are in the usual turmoil
that continues from the opening of college in
the fall until November.
Hair-clipping is the collegiate outdoor sport
in that institution, and fresh and soph, armed
with clippers, range the campus near the dormi
tories, seeking an unfortunate "foe" who may
be surrounded and denuded of his locks. In a
recent instance of this kind, the fair locks of
the captive were later auctioned off, bringing
some $20 to the exultant robbers, which were
promptly invested in "camels" or some other
brand of narcotic solace.
The young men are leaving their marks on
each other temporary, to be sure, but none the
less enjoyable or humiliating, as the case may be.
Take a Tip from Tammany.
If you really want to know just what the
situation is in New York, try to' find out how
Tammany feels as to the prospect. Cox 'was
the preferred Tammany candidate at San Fran
cisco, and was put over by a combination ot
bosses, in which Murphy of New York, Nugent
of New Jersey, Taggart of Indiana and Brennan
of Illinois were the dominating figures. Natur
ally, it would be expected that Tammany would
be back of its candidate for president with all
its force. However, New York politics is a
peculiar thing, and the "organization" is noted
for the keen eye it keeps on its own interest.
Governor "Al" Smith, also a Tammany
candidate, running for re-election, opened his
campaign at Albany last Friday, ' when, in his
notification speech, he declared that national
issues should not determine a state campaign.
This was wildly cheered by the large group of
Tammany leaders in attendance. As the gov
ernor failed to mention the League of Nations
or any other of the "paramounts," the inference
is plain that Tammany intends to win for Smith,
regardless of what comes to Cox. That is all.
Palmer's Bully Boys.
Palmer official heelers at the San Francisco
convention charged their expenses to the gov
ernment Certainly. Public office has always
been a private snap in democratic administra
tions. But it does look a little raw for the of
ficial assistants of Attorney General Palmer,
"on duty" to help their chief in his quest for the
democratic presidential nomination, to charge
the expenses of their high-rollicking trip to
Frisco to the taxpayers.'
Really, it is time to turn the rascals out. The
country wants a change at Washington.
The president has opened fire through his
private secretary. Two years ago when he used
his own typewriter it resulted in a flareback.

The First State Savings Bank has just
installed an up to date burglar alarm. The
alarm is on the outside of the building, so
it can be heard for some distance when
sounded. It is so arranged that any tam
pering with the vault will gause the alarm
to sound. It can also be sounded from sev
eral placeR in the building, so in case of a
daylight hold-up it would be very easy for
some one familiar with the buttons to press
one. There are also places within the vault
for giving such an alarm.

My reason for not going to the garden is,
that our cultivated blooms are not only arti
ficially produced, and in some degree monstrosi
ties, but they are seen in unnatural conditions,
in crowds and masses, the various kinds too
near together, and in most cases selected on ac
count of their gorgeous colouring. The effect
produced, however delightful it may be in some
ways, Is confusing to those simple natural feel
ings which flowers irt a state of nature cause In
us. I confess that gardens in most cases afreet i

Writing as woman suffrage Is an
accomplished fact, there is no bet
ter theme than the results of a
study by Dr. Clelia D. Mosher of
Palo Alto, Cal., read before the In
ternational Conference of Women
Dr. Mosher concludes that there
Is no difference in the muscular
strength of women and men, due to
stx as such. Such differences as
are frequently found are due to
differences in the use of the mus
cles brought about by the conven
tional limitations of activity or by
These conclusions were based on
careful studies made with standard
instruments for measuring the
strength of individual groups of
muscles and single muscles, it is
true most of the women were col
lege girls doing gymnasium work
and older women and mothers who
had been athletic in their younger
days. But conclusions drawn from
this group can be applied to all
women without doing violence to
the truth. Dr. Mosher thought.
Some muscles were stronger in
women than in men. Foi- instance.
the muscles which lift the arms
were stronger in women because
women hold their hands above their
heads while dressing their hair and
the restraining coats worn by men
hrevent these muscles from acting.
Two women wno roae oicycies
several thousand miles a year were
stronger In their leg muscles than
were men. Women trained in fan
cy dancing were stronger in certain
leg muscles than were men.
It is generally held that women
breathe with their chest muscles
and men with their abdominal mus
cles, because nature had pregnancy
in mind Jn fashioning woman. Dr.
Mosher shows that the difference Is
due wholly to woman's dress.
There Is no Justification for
monthly invalidism, as has been
shown by Dr. Mosher and others.
Ninety-nine per cent of women whd
He in bed at that time do so as the
result of faulty training. During
the discussion of this subject sev
eral women from Europe dissented.
They said the women In Europe
during the war who worked at day
labor stood up all right at first,
but that they wore out before the
war was over.
For instance. Dr. Thuillier-Lan-
dry and Dr. Glboulet said in France
it was noticed that in the beginning
the women munition workers were
able to work as hard as men, but
little by little they became exhaust
ed. Many became tuberculous.
To this Dr. Mosher replied that
most of thsse women had been
brought up in idleness and few or
their muscles had been

different dressing, differ
cnt activities, and even diWorent

to get the rank and file of women
to have muscles and bodies as well
