WELL, WHAT OF IT.
a Theodore Roosevelt, itx-president of
the Unfttd States, Is paying a visit to
Portland. But. what of ltT Other ex
presidents have visited Portland and
there was not a great deal thought
about the matter. Then; why throw
.fit after fll, when Roosevelt enters tho
country profited to a certain extent
by his administration, but he failed to
wear. A man above the ordinary grew
chesty over his,, popularity and put too
much weight on the ladder. The lad
der broke, and the ex-president Is now
trying to regain his former promi
nence.. :.:t: '
Will he succeed? Very 'doubtful.
Another war might give him military
prominence, But It Is a question whe
ther the 8an Juan hill stunt could be
pulled off again and be made stick.
Roosevelt Is a good man. but too
much praise was a drawback to him.
He Is entitled to every respect this
state can show hJm. but the former
semi-god worship of him Is out of
place, unc ailed for and unnecessary.
He is a good man in priva e life, so
let It rtst at that.
The suicide at Cove yesterday onlr
goes to show what a delicate organ the
human brain really U. It takes only
a constant pounding and thinking on

unfortunate man ' evidently had no
good cause for his rash act, yet he
thought he had. A great deal of trou
ble is In thought only, for the ritual
of & certain secret order has sal?!r "the
Imagination pains mere horror. thu.i
the world iver knew."

(St. Louis Post-Dispatch.)
There Is much truth in the conten
tion that since the movement of pop
ulation has become world-wide, back
wardness In one nation Is a menace to
oth!r nations. The United States ha
gradually become Interested, to the
point even of serious concern, In the
educational qualifications of the peo
ple of more than half the .states In
Europe. Immigrants come to this
j country every year by tens j)f thou
sands with the Intention of becoming
'wage earners or tillers of the soil,
and most of them aspire to be citi
zens. It is safe to say that the best
of them are as eager to be American
in spirit as In residence. Their prog
ress, however, depends v:ry much
on the amount of primary education
which they received In Europe. Is$
scarcely too much to say that this
' republic Is based on the average man's
ability to rtad the newspapers. He
cannot do that and remain without
opinions. To be without opinions Is
to be d ad to the world. It is bet
ter to' run the risk of holding wrong
i views than to have no views at all.

litical potter. ,

I removed by the European govern
; ments. We cannot meddle with It
until the Immigrant has landed hero.
We can exclude him or educate him,

But we cannot educate the Europeans
In Europe. An attempt to do so
would probably lead to . unpleasant
complications if not actual hostile
acts. We are under the necessity of
doing our educational work here or
of applying an educational t?st as a
qualification for entry. The business
of educating Europeans on their own
soil Is not one In which Americans can
properly engage. They may attempt
it' from religious motives, but they
cannot def:nd It on political grounds.
SHIRT WAISTS ASD TIES.
(Ohio State Journal.) '
There is an organization in Chicago
called the "Literary store." It is com
posed of women of literary taste and
achievement. That Is the reason they
offer a prize for the best pumpkin
pie. There is more literature In a
pumpkin pie than there is In Long
fellow's poems or Hawthorne's Twice
Told Tales. There Is poetry, philos
ophy, science, ethics, everything good
within the snowy confines of a pump
kin pie. Sit down with Emerson or
Whittler and a large piece of pump
kin pie and feel the effulgence of the
universe breaking in on your grateful
Associated with this pie prize is one
for the best laundered shirtwaist.
Now we are reaching the , altitudes
of life. There is nothing in all the
tones and tints of human experience
that blends so sweetly as a. piece of
luscious pumpkin pie and a girl in a
neatly laundered shirtwaist. That
"score" understands its business when
It arranges Its harmonies so as to cou
ple the shirtwaist with a pumpkin pie.
They go together like a humming bird
and a morning glory.
