Why not take up Secretary Knox' connection with revolution in China, and that little question of how it comes that present administration has handed finances of Honduras over to Morgan for some forty years to come? That's a suggestion, based on principle that there isn't much use in digging up buried dirty linen, while there's a whole lot v hanging on the line. Besides, rude persons might think somebody wanted the buried dirty linen for campaign material at this present time. Dr. Mary Walker nearly precipitated a scandal at Washington "by taking off her Prince Albert coat in Secretary of the Interior Fisher's office. But she had another Prince Albert underneath it. By the way, Mary wore pink trousers with pink stripes in them. Well, if you do take advantage of Leap Year, you ought to be head of the household, oughtn't you ?

My, what a differncc a few years make in some folks Johnny Connors, who fought Carpar Leon and Jimmy Uair for the bantam championship years ago, is pioprietor of a sa loon here and like many an oldtimer, recalls Johnson when the "big cinder" was glad to slime shoes "for a gitnen." "Thirteen ca. ago Johnson didn't know what legular money was," said Connors," reflecting on the champion's present prosperity. "He thought himself lucky to get coffee and rolls.

"Most of the stories about Johnson's start in the fight game are yarns." continued Connors. "Take it from me this fellow started right here in Springfield and I was the first man to put a glove on him. "We used to have a boxing show here once in a while in those days. Johnson blew in from down south and T put him to work as porter and let him use that shine stand you see in front of the drum, now. s "About this time Bob Long, a "negro welter came here after beating wonderful Rube Fe'rns in Kansas City and I took charge of his business. The first match I got for him was with Martin Judge, of Chicago. Sparring partners were hard to find and I suggested that Johnson go on with him. Jack was a giant and we thought he could stand the gaff. "That afternoon Johnson and several others beat it to the levee where Long was training. When Johnson put on the gloves he was nervous, and when Long planted his left "into Jack's midsection the big smoke shook off the gloves and hiked back to the shin...

WHAT'S BITING OSBORN? Let us rise to inquire what has got into Chase Osborn. governor of Michigan. Chase used to act like a pretty good fellow, but'listen to what he got off his mind yesterday: "I would' urge that both Taft and La Follette withdraw from the race for the presidential nomination, and allow Roosevelt to come to the fore. "As between Taft and La Follette. I am for Taft, because the La Follette style of campaign tends to arouse the passions of the people and make for a condition of public intolerance which is always worse than personal or individual intolerance, because it has so much more might as a force. "We have got to have big business in this country if we are to compete in the manufactures and transactions of the world." Thereafter, Chase set to work and denounced La Follette as a "politician." Now, in the first place. Chase must have done some politics himself before he got to be governor of Michigan. The only question is, with whom did Chase do his politicking. ...

JOHN HOBBS LEARNS THAT HE'S PART OF THE STATE GOVERNMENT AND GETS BUSY By W. G. Shepherd. '(Staff Correspondent.) Madison, Wis., Jan. 3. By this time, John Hobbs, who had been helped by the state to get his salary when he was injured, whose daughter Mary had secured a shortening of her work day with the aid of the state, whose daughter Annie's complaint to the state had resulted in the losing of a number of evil resorts, and whose two sons were receiving an education in their trades that was practically free, began to feel that, after all, he really did have some influence with the big state of Wisconsin. As he thought it over he began to realize that he himself was part of the state government and that every other decent citizen of the state was also a part of the government. This belief made John "Hobbs feel like a strong, self-respecting citizen; it made his feel as if he owed a duty to his state, the duty of being as good a citizen as he could be and of seeing that his children ...

MOTHER EARTH DASHES THREE MILLION MILES NEARER THE SUN Washington, Jan. 3. This earth has dashed 3,000,000 miles nearer the fiery furnace of the sun, in the past few months, according to statements given out here today and verified from the highest astronomical sources. If this rate of speed continues we will crash into the sun on Thanksgiving day, 1927, and be totally destroyed in one puff of smoke. According to astronomers at the United States observatory here we have been on this mad fall toward the sun since 2 a. m. last July 3. Each day since that lot Jul)r morning this terrestrial sphere, in its1 mad flight through ;pace, has "dropped" more than 16,000 miles toward the sun. This morning we are only 91.- But long before then we would all be roasted to a good dark brown; oceans would be dried up, a thimbleful of ice would be worth more than all the diamonds ($) :&? 000,000 miles from the sun; July 3 you remember how hot it was then ? We were 94,000,000 miles distant....

000 miles is near enough for her. Before bedtime tonight she will begin steering away from Old Sol. While we are celebrating the next Fourth of July she will slip into the place she occupied July 3, 1911 the point farthest from the sun. Uncle Sam's astronomers gravely remark "the earth's orbit is an ellipse of small eccentricity, in one of whose foci is the sun: it follows therefore that the earth is at perihelion at the beginning of the year, and at aphelion about the middle of the year' All of which means in pla,in United States that the earth's path around the sun is shaped something like a goose egg, the sun being at one side on the center. In January we are at the point nearest the sun; in July, farthest. But a little thing like 3,000,000 miles doesn t cut much ice with the weather man; he goes right along giving us the blizzards and zero stuff. He says that a few million miles more or less doesn't effect our climate because of the slanting waj' the sun's rays strike us. DEAF A...

The'new hospital stenographer was alert to all that went on among the nurses who filed by the desk, going to and fro from duty on the upper floors or stopping to ask her for mail. One of these, Teresa, was distinguished both for weight and wit. All liked Teresa, but none of them ever took the trouble to let her know it. It would have done her a lot of good, sometimes, if they had. As it was, when a grateful patient "G. P." among them sent out invitations for a little party, the question .arose as to how many .of the girls in training might go. The stenographer overheard "Maggie Irish" ask Teresa if she were going."No" "Why not?" "Well, if I did go and tried to have any fun you'd all call me the elephant, and then I haven't anything to wear" That was the first time the stenographer had ever heard or seen Teresa show that she was hurt by the c...

The stenographer lunched with Aunt Mary the next day, and carried home a black chiffon, which she sent by express to Teresa, with a note, "From one who is mad "because she isn't plump enough to wear a decent gown any more." She managed to get Teresa into an arrangement of stays, and she patted up her hair in some puffs one night to show her how, and then just as she was planning to be Teresa's beau for the evening, of course something happened. She was laid up the whole day of the party. And Charley, whom she hadn't seen for a year, had to send on that very afternoon a special delivery that he was coming into town about 5 .p. m. for two or three days. Oh, was there any justice in anything? A spasm of pain across her eyes answered. Charley in town, and an evening for someone else "planned previously, and and both ruined. . . .

gaudy theater signs, and she does not use that dainty, modest slush to her big brush that is characteristic of her sex. She slaps the paste on just like a man and quicker and better than some men. She makes $2.50 per day and she earns the money. Her husband, W. F. Polkingham, is a bill poster. He had a hard time finding reliable help, so "the missus" jumped in and he has never wanted for reliable help since. She started at the work like an old timer, and it never even blistered her hands. Sounds funny, but it's right. She is a big, robust, healthy woman and somewhat of an athlete besides. She can pick up two 50 pound sacks of flour and put one on each shoulder with ease. Mrs. Polkingham likes being a bill poster. Here's what she has to say about it: "When a man is in trouble, his wife should always be the first one to the rescue. Mr. Polkingham was about to lose several contracts, which meant bread and butter to us, so I concluded to be a bill poster. "I like the work fine It is out...

WHY NOT HELP THE PEOPLE NOW? Lots of Subway Talk About the Future, and Mighty Little Doing to Improve the Service on Existing Street Railways. At a recent meeting of the city council, Alderman Britten of the 23rd ward, introduced a resolution which provided that the corporation counsel give an opinion whether the city has the right and power to enforce a single fare, universal transfer over the lines of the Chicago Elevated Railways. The Chicago Elevated Railways is 'a consolidation of the South Side Elevated Railroad company, the Metropolitan West Side Elevated Railway company and the Northwestern Elevated Railroad company, which also controls the Chicago and Oak Park Elevated Railroad system. The consolidation has been in effect for six months or more, and no move has been made by either the Chicago Elevated Railways or the city council to make the changes promised the people of Chicago. "In a statement of June 28, 1911, Henry A. Blair, chairman of the board of the Chicago Railway...

mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm the present transportation facilities." The mayor and the city council seem to be sleeping, and the Chicago Elevated Railways respectfully declines to do anything for the people, just as long as it does not have to. The whole proposition sterns to be up to the people and they should demand the right to be heard. The subway is so closely linked with the question of elevated service that no division seems possible. Last Sunday The Tribune said: "The subway commission predicts that actual construction on a rapid transit system will be started by July 1 next. An appropriation of $2,200,000 has been asked and the commission hopes to be able to spend the major portion of it during the next twelve months. "All of the plans and predictions relate to two track bores for express service on the elevated roads. Subways for the surface lines, according to the present program, will not be considered until later. "The all important question of the necessary funds, which has blocked...

In passengers commission represents that the present capacity is 45,750. while with subwavs the number could be 160,000. " "There are four important matters to be disposed of before digging will probably begin. The committee on local transportation and the council must decide upon the routes and the location of the stations. ' "It may be deemed advisable for the city to reach the agreement with the elevated roads regarding the amount of rent they shall pay for the use of tin- subways before the tunnels are started. "The fourth possible hinderance to progress may be the consolidation of the surface and elevated lines and the granting of a new franchise to the consolidated company. "As a .preliminary to consolidation an appraisal of the elevated properties must be made." Note that the Tribune blandl...

My friend has taken a liking to them, and although she has heard rumors about them, persists in keeping them as friends. We have pleaded with her in vain to give them up. but she claims a friend is a friend, no matter whether poor or rich, shunned or respected. She claims these girls never had a chance, and she is trying to give it to them now. We are afraid that people who do not know her as we do will misjudge her. Is there nothing that her friends who love her can do to persuade her to drop the objectionable acquaintances? Do vou think she is in the right? G. M. What is there wrong in valuing these girls as she knows them rather than as rumor paints them? And what difference does it make whether people who do not know her misjudge...
