TIIE DEMOCRATIC DANCE TO BRITISH MUSIC
v, There is considerable agitation-in Great Britain for a re
' turn to something, like the British Navigation Laws which
were repealed January 1, 1850. Many of the British are con
vinced that the best way to insure their supremacy at sea
is to restore. the protective navigation laws. British com
petition li bad enough now, so far' as it affects our own
: shipping.- If England should legislate to protect her ship
; ping , while the United States did nothing, the result would
undoubtedly be the destruction of the American merchant
' marine. Even as it is, British vessels are carrying mare
American imports and ' exports than American vessels are

' ' a a
naa oeen completely demonstrated mat iron snips tne snips
of the future could be built more cheaply in England than
in any other country. The British' free trade policy, adopted
three years before, .was the result of the agitation of the
Manchester textile manufacturers, captained by Cobden, whe
'had satisfied 1 themselves that they could produce 1 fabrics
cheaper than any other country and since they wanted free
foreign markets they saw the consistency of establishing ja
free market at home as a condition precedent But free tradf
is a thing of the past with Great Britain, and the "safeguard
ing of industries', act passed last year by the British Parlia-
.ment, writes a duty of 33133 per cent ad valorem on some
6,000 separate article of British manufacture. This is con-
siderably higher than any average ad valorem rate contem
plated in the tariff bill now pending in the Congress of the
'United States,, ?; v y. - v. y - j
,1 t And besides that their tariff law puts in the hands of a
commission the lowering or raising of rates; the express aric
. declared purpose being to make the. rates high enough tc
protect British producers and manufacturers competing wit!
the products of foreign countries.' . j
As a writer on the subject recently declared : "When
Jamey'G. Blaine stated in his reply to. William E. Gladstone
that, 'regardless of, consistency and regardless of expense''
Great Britain had always protected her ships" that is tc
say,1 wherever they J needed protection and j that shipping
was the one industry, which the United States had ref usee'
to; protect, he expressed in a phrase the anomalv of '.British

I British propaganda has In

for American shipping than perhaps .any one factor, and V
is heroically at work today, for the same purpose. Every
thing possible is being done to delay the shiD aid bill, and
"as .seem3 usually, to be the case; where British interests are
"concerned, a few of the Democrats are their representative

meant by bringing that animal."
said Mrs. Winston. "He'a noth

dp food and does nothing In re
turn." v ' - -
The i twins talked it over very
soberly. ''Mother. Is so business
like," sighed Paul. . "She thinks
yon shouldn't' have anything, or
do anything, unless It's useful.'
"I know,', said Pauline. "It we
could pust. show her that Jocko
could, bring something: in I have
an idea!" ' ;

has forfeited his ' priority rights
by quitting. The, priority rights
of the man who took bis job have
begun to , run. Jones wants bis
priority fights restored, before
resumlngbls Job. The railroads
do not want to have his priority
rights restored. They want him
to begin again at the foot of the
ladder, like a new man and they
have also promised the man who
took the job of Jones, and is now
at work, that he shall be retained

THE FROO WHO WAS ROILED
That is the name of a most in
teresting story a writer in an ex
change says he read the other
day about a man in a rut.
No, you would never guess from
the title that this was the story
of 'a man 'in a rut; in fact, at
first thought you might think it
bad something to do with a fro
and its reactions to heating water;
but you would be mistaken; you
may be assured that it is the story
of a man in a rut. . j
Tou know, the profersor in this
story was saying, a frog jumps
readily enough when put Into
warm 'water; yet a frog can' tie
boiled without a movement If the
water is heated slowly enough. J
Yes, the professor went on,, hi
one experiment the water was
heated at the rate of .0036 of a
degree Fahrenheit per second!

mother in horror. . "You terrible

round dead. He bad evidently
been boiled to death without no
ticing It. i
I Observe, rpntinned the profes
sor In this story, at every moment
the temperature of the water was
in no different contrast with the
temperature, a moment before.
The attention of the frog was
never directed to the tempera
ture of the water at all. So the
frog, concluded the professor, was
actually boiled to death without
being aware of the fact.
Now, kind reader,; perhaps you
st.H think thatj this story has
something to do with a frog and
its reactions to beating water;
but It is not; be assured that
this is a story of a man in a rut.
Moral: Don't be the frog that
gets into the water that heats so
slowly and don't be a man who
