44TO GREENLAND AND
On May 9, the Washington correspondent of the New
York Herald telegraphed that the "Democrats are split over
the tariff bill, and many of them who are members of the
Senate farm bloc find themselves, in a quandary." When
Senator King of Utah attacked the bloc, Senator Ashurst
or Arizona came to its defense and recited in detail some of
the important legislation since its organization.
Asked what he called honest rate3 Senator Ashurst re
plied: "Rates on imports which equal cdstof production
abroad." ' : - :
' ;','That is hews to me that the. Democratic party, or any
.member of it," subscribes to that doctrine," said Senator
r ?i j"The farm! bloc, especially the members on this side'
V shouted Senator Ashurst, "re3ents the suggestion that the
Democratic party is still a free-trade party. That principle
tan only apply to Greenland and such countries."

country in the world is .now a free trade country

mass of yellow hair. He bad black

like a bandit, and a scar near his
mouth, which made htm even less

BANKERS TAKE HOLD
A ray of light has at last ap
peared on the horizon of Euro
pean economic darkness. The
taking out of the hands of(a group
of politicians and placing In the
bands of a group of bankers of
the German reparations muddle
may be considered the first step
toward the sclation of Europe's
distressing economic problem.
-These bankers, headed by J.
Pierpont Morgan, will waste no
time in futile discussions or ora
torical grandstand display for
mass consumption in their re
spective countries. They will,
like the practical, hard-headed
business men that they are, im
mediately proceed to analyze the
problem from the standpoint, not
of political expediency, but from
that of enlightened self-interest.
Bankers are not in business for
their health, nor for the honor
and glory that high position af
fords. They are in business for
profit, and where no business is
done no profit is made. Business
in Europe and with Europe has
come to a pass where unless
something drastic is accomplished,
and that quickly, complete chaos
is threatened. . .
The committee under Mr. Mor
gan's leademhip have (promptly
gotten down to business and a
tentative outline of the course' to
be followed In formulating their
plan has been given to the press.

Sandy could sit up and beg, play
dead, and carry things, in his
mouth. Gale would throw a stick
into the lake, a block away from
the house, call "Fetch!" and San
dy always went after it. It had
taken much patience to teach him
this trick, because he didn't ex
actly like the water.
One day Galewas busy around
the house, and Sandy went walk
ing oft by himself. He was gone a
long time and when he came back
he was carrying something in his
mouth. Gale called him, and the
dog dropped at his feet a tiny,
"He was probably down by the
lake," said Gale's mother, "and
saw some one throw it in. He's
used to going after anything
thrown in the water, so he 'fetch

white. We might keep It."
The kitten was soon well and
activer-One day Gale took it along
when he delivered washings. It
was curled up on top of some pa
pers on a bundle in his wagon.
"Good gracious," said the lady at
the first house where he stopped.
where did you get that lovely
Angora kitten? Is it for sale?"
"Why, I don't know, mum,'
said Gale, his eyes wide with sur
"Well, I have a friend who
would like to get an Angora kit

said the lady. "She will give you
a good price for it.
"The way I figure." said Gale.
when he was talking it over later
with his mother, "is that this kit

mean old boy found it and threw

it was a valuable kitten right off.

After this analysis has been
completed and the bankers know

If this plan works out well with
the German problem there is lit

situation will be taken up and
treated in a like manner. No
student of European affairs can

The beauty of the plan pro

that problem. When this bank

ONE WAY TO JUDGE YOUR
Socrates used to bring many
friends unexpectedly for dinner
llnto the bouse.
It is said that is about all he
brought in, but that is beside this
The fact ts that a particularly
flagrant abuse ot this habit once
incited his wife, Zanthippe, to a
terrific fit of scolding, which she
concluded by throwing at him a
bucket of icy water.
Whereat, all Socrates did was
simply to remark nonchalantly:
"After the thunder comes the
Socrates knew that poise Is
power; that self-control Is the
better part of valor.
This idea he did bis best to in
culcate in the ancient Greeks who
crystallized It into the proverb:
"They whom the gods would de
stroy, they first make mad."
Racine, undoubtedly, had this
thought in mind when he wrote:
"Ne veuillei pas vons perdre, et
tous etes sauve" meaning "don't
insist on destroying yourself, and
you are safe."
These truths are as potent to
day as they were at the time they
were first enunciated; the fellow
who loses his temper still gets
the worst of the deal.
A racing, uncontrolled auto

deadly If It is not checked it will
be wrecked. Also humans.

think of saying or doing. All else

OWNING A METEORITE
The erudite Boston Transcript
has disposed of one question that
no doubt has harassed the intel
lectual and worried the profound;
through the efforts of the Tran
script we know now and forever
more who owns the meteorites
that fall out of the sky from other
The question was raised by the
Fuddeq bump ot a huge rock that
fell out of the sky into southern
Virginia, tearing up some 500
square feet ot ground. The Tran
script points out that it is no
possible use to quarrel about its
possession because the supreme
court has already settled the ques
tion of the ownership of meteors.
It appears that in 1890 an
aerolite passed over northern
Iowa and a fragment fell onto a
piece of ground owned by John
Goddard, but leased by someone
else. The tenant sold the meteor
ite for $105 and the owner of the
property claimed the money.
The supreme court found that
from 600 to 700 meteorites fall
on the earth every year; and de
clared that the finders thereof
are not the owners-thereof unless
they happen to own the land up
on which the rocks fall. Even
should a meteorite fall upon a
highwaj, It does not belong to
the finder, the highway being a
mere easement for travel.
If you yearn to own a piece
dropped off some other world,
your chances will be Improved if
you own a piece of the world on
which you live.
