FOUL WEATHER RIENDS
' V ' (Los Angeles Times) -
! When the border ruffian, Marjnion (as Scott tells the
story,) lay dying on the, fatal field of Flodden there was no
page, squire or groom, no, comrade-at-arms, to bring him ft
drink of blessed water from the spring to slake his thirst.
They were all too. busy, attending to the bloody affairs of the
battlefield. And Marmion was no longer of any practical
value. " V- . '
It was Clare, the woman he had deceived, who, forgetting
hatredswrongs and fears, heard only a plaintive voice, saw
only a human being Jn distress. It was the woman he had
scorned who broughthim from Sybil Grey's consecrated foun
tain the peeded cup of cold water. So, too, it was a priest,
a stranger, not one of his own kith and kin, who, with the
woman, ministered to the last mortal wants of the old swash
buckling warrior. , ; , ; ' v
: An American swashbuckler, knight of a different order,
who had fallen like Marmion, but to more insidious foes than
Scottish spearmen found out also that the boon companions
of his prosperity were too busy with their own affairs to ex
press more than perfunctory regret over the fall of one they
had once been proud to recognize. r x ' ,
Again it was the woman, the wire ne naa aesertea, ior
whose help he had never called when the world hailed him as
a popular idol, who threw all discretion-to the winds and
hastened to his' side, simply saying, 44! don't know just how
I can be of service to him, but many things may turn up
that I can do." ' No rhapsody, no sentimentalizing, just a
plain wish to see the thing through, whatever the rights or
wrongs..-, -V' ' v"' ' '
' One other faithful friendjvaited disconsolately for the
return of his absent master, the old bulldog, Luke. He, too,
never reasoned why. Indictments, murder charges mean
nothing to the dog who loves the hand that, feeds him, the
.heart-that sympathizes with his lowly lot; And the fallen
comedian had been kind to his dog, Luke."
' ? Marmion had a woman and a priest to still remember
him when the world had passed him by. Roscoe Arbuckle had
a woman and a dog to weigh not the heinousness of the charge
against him or the censure of the public. It is worth nothing
that the wife returned to him after his chances of continued
affluence .were lost and, whatever the outcome of the trial,
he would remain a marked man.

vealed in the dark hours of
was animated by unreasoning devotion to a higher creation.
The priest was moved by disciplined devotion to a Superior
Being. The woman was swayed by a spirit ot pure devotion
that God alone can interpret.
Of this strangely assorted trio the greatest is the woman.
That which in the dog is instinct, in the priest duty, is re
vealed in the woman as the redeeming factor in imperfect
human nature. So foolishly idealistic, so sublimely impracti
cal is this womanly trait that it can produce in what we call
the worst of women a divine pity that links her directly
with those whom we number among the noblest of the sex.
Under its influence a woman will sacrifice all the material
world values most. She will even bind up the hand that was
maimed in striking her.
No one has summed up this amazing feminine attribute
better than Sir Walter Scott himself in the exquisite lines
from his dramatic epic:
"O woman! in our hours of ease
Uncertain, coy, and hard to please,
And variable as the shade
By the light quivering aspen made;
When pain and anguish wring the brow,
A ministering angel thou!"
Let the human race be glad that the world is still full
of such ministering angels.

Following are some brief ex

Increasing volume of retail and

"Better conditions in the steel
and iron trade, although still on
a moderate scale, continue to
show themselves, and are in part
the result of the improvement of
the railroad situation. Current
price indexes show that the level
of values Is still moderately on

will be accentuated as interest

THE t'X EMPLOYED.
According to the department of
labor there are more than 18.000
of the unemployed In San Fran
cisco. The number of Idle in Los
Angeles Is about 10,000. There
are only about 4U.000 Jobless men
n all the states of the Pacific
coast. There are more than that
idle in the single city of Detroit,
and yet the motor industry is re
turning to its old-time vigor.
The same authority reports no
unemployment at all in Salem
this being the only all white city
cn this coast.
With the right kind of co-oper-
ction, as the writer has stated be

district who are willing to work
can be kept busy though there
will be no doubt problems in this
connection with the coming of the
THE EASY MARKS.
It is said that at various times
and in various ways nearly. $100,-
000,000 of American money has
tone into speculation over the
value of the German mark. Or
dinarily that much trading would
tend to stabilize the value; bu,
the war was too big a thing to
be overcome and nothing could be
done to keep the head ct the Ger
man mark above water. Ordinar
ily the mark would be worth
about 24 cents in American
money. In coinage the mark con
tains five grams of silver, but
ae a basis of currency the value
of the mark has cow shrunk to
less than 1 cent. Americans be
gan buying the mark in singula
tion when it was being exchanged
at S and 10 cents. It has fluctu
ated much, but the drift was
steadily downward. It will come
back, but too late to be of much
help to the speculators.
