it is now, but it was easy to tell what was coming, already
on the way, in fact, i i

to give them employment. They are not hungry be-

''L is exactly the result of our free trade tariff which
has permitted the importation of over five billion
dollars' worth of foreign merchandise which has
: crowded out domestic products. The importers have
been buying from the bankrupt nations of Europe,
instead of buying goods produced at home. They
hive imported over $5,279,000,000 worth of foreign
goods during the calendar year, the largest part of
which should have been produced and consumed at

tions ot the aagea, who are often
cited with respect in courts when
Blackstone and the statute book
are silent, rather tell against this
audacious judge. Ot what com
plexion is the trustful heroine of
the theater, persecuted, betrayed,
yet faithful to the end; whether
the ending is happy or the re
verse? Everybody knows that
her hair Is flaxen and her eyes
are blue. Whereas tne wicaea
adventuress was the deepest of
brunets even before her rebirth
as a vamp'.re. It is true that
cynics have declared that In pri
vate life their 'roles are apt to
be reversed, but stage complex
ions are not so Irrevocable as to
give this contention much weight.
Tbe dramatic and literary tra
dition may be taken as embody

It is a tradition, of course,
which can exist only in lands of
mixed population where tbe two
types exist side by side, as Is the
case in most European countries.
We are so apt to think of nations
as either dark or fair that most
travelers are surprised to find
how many blonds there are in
Italy and Spain, how many bru
nets in Norway and Sweden. Some
ethnologists; declare that in the
United States the blond is dis
appearing, being replaced by a
neutral brown-haired type, but
fair hair and blue eyes are not
yet so rare that a judge can hope
to utter such a dlctnm without
stirring up trouble. It may con
fidently be predicted that Justice
Morris will be emphatically called
upon to substantiate or retract
his sweeping charge against a
very considerable percentage of
a far from negligible sex.
