to do buslnee pay tat," is said to be the
motto f th Vliarmrusn atlil Hnnittiran
governments under) the regime of Jon.
nsmos Hys, tut president, inis is
the report brought here by W. I Shar
key of Blueflelds, Nicaragua, who for
more titan three months was in business
in that republic.
He says a policy of extortion was
practised against me people who en-
trstred In the mininir business. If thev
wanted to succeed and export their ores
without trouble thcr found it ahvavi
savantBL-eous to make a "u vvv" w tn
the "Intendciito" or personal rcpresen-
isuve 01 me dictator.
"Often," said Mr. Sharkey. "It is im
perative for the mining company or en
gineer to give the President some of the
hock In mo company or at least a liber
al share of the returns from that output
of the property This alone will insure
immunity from harassing interferences
always met with until such arrangement
has been made.
"The trouble lies in the instability- of
the mininir laws. As I understand it. a
duly of but 54 cents an ounce is charg
ed upon the gold exported from the
countries, but thoe who do not look
after their own interesta bv areasiris
the officiate are Just as apt to have to
pay 150 an ounce, or w even assessed
more. If the minltia man is wise he will
find It to bis advantage to protect him
self by getting the inWmlentes inter
ested so that they will not impose upon
me company when the time comes for
"Favoritism is the cause of a creat
deal of distress In the country. Zelava

He give out concessions for all sorts of
indutries and no oue can embark in them
unless he has a concession. One man has
the right to sell tobscco in the Repub

That's What Counts
BRAND NAMES OF PIANOS DO MEAN SOMETHING. BUT FI ANOS MUST BE GRADED IN THE
CI.ASS IN WHICH THEY BELONG AND KEPT THESETO MEAN THE MOST TO A PURCHASER.
THAT IS THE GOOD SERVICE WE PERFORM FOB OUR CUSTOMERS WHEN WE PURCHASE OUR J
ENORMOUS STOCKS FROM THE FORTY DIFFERENT FACTORIES WE REPRESENT.
WE BRING EXPERT KNOWLEDGE OF PIANOS TO BEAS IN OUR DEALINGS WITH EACH MAKE OF
PIANO WE BUY AND SELL
AND NO INDUCEMENT OF LARGER PROFIT ON ANY MAKE OF PIANO BY GRADING IT HIGHER
THAN IT DESERVES (AND FACTORIES WOULD LIKE US TO DO IT TOO), TEMPTS US TO VARY FROM
OUR FIXED RULE TO GRADE, PRICE AND SELL EVERY MAKE OF PIANO WE HANDLE IN THE CLASS IN
WHICH IT BELONGS.

Young Criminals In The Making And
ine court wnere They Are Tried.
A day spent in New York's Children's
t-ourt win never be forgotten. Hera all
the youthful offenders are tried. Into
this court crowds more of human inter
est than in any other court in the world,

its Dar is constantly nassinir a oreat nro-

vibrant with pathos and humor. For
both pathos and humor consist in the
perception of incongruities. It is the
sins of the parents and the sins of the
living conditions that the' overcrowded
cny loives on its children that here
stand out mot strikingly. . The. real
culprit is more often the delinquent par
ent man tne delinquent child. The
sii-'lit of a child trotting to a ulnnn tt
or uiree tunes aauy, pail in hand to
procure the family supply of beer a
familiar one in a great city impeaches
the parent for a criminal indifference.
Small wonder that the child's moral per
ceptions are obliterated, and his instincts
perverted in such surroundings) It is
in the streets, the vice-sown streets, that
the child learns to gamble, to swear, to
steal. He cannot helD it. Ha must
employ the ways of his conmanions if
he is to survive among them. And the
ways 01 his companions lead oftenest to
the Children's Court.
