V the elastic provision of the tariff laws. Some business
ttexr are asking-for a lowering of rates, while others are '
urging An increase. About 50 petitions have, been filed,
the wool schedule .and the hosiery industry being among
the more important affected. Never before has a tariff "

' " changes as they occur in the relative cost of production at

THE BOOK PICKERS
Teachers and librarians wbo
were getting together at the con
vention of the American Library
association to relect a small lib
rary for use in schools from the
first to the eighth grades all
agreed In giving Louisa Alcott's
"Little Women" as their first
choice of books. "Alice in Won
derland," "Robinson Cruso,"
"Tom Sawyer" and "Treasure Is
land" came next in the order
named. After that opinions di
vided over a wide field. It ts no
easy task to agree on the fifty
best - books for young folks. It
13 virtually as difficult as it Is to
make the proper selection for
white whiskered patriots, who are
but children of an older growth.
The selection of three feet of
books is sufficient tinder to start
a war a literary war.
A FEMTXIXE WORLD
A world Inhabited by women
only and these pitiless, hard and
cruel! A community Jike that of
thd bees; with every indirfdual
working furiously. to the limit of,
its power! With all ideals smoth
ered and only cold, applied sci
ence surviving! Such is the vision
of our world in the future seen
by Dr. Nicola Telsa, an eminent
And women in their encroach
ment on the sphere of man are
to blame. .
Surely Dr. Tesla is the supreme
pessimist of the ages. But If he
should be right, -what a (huge
joke it would be on the women.
. It seems more" likely, though,
that the increasing opportunities
of women will result Jn their be
ing more subservient than domin
ating in the future. , , , ..
C Women of the -more masculine
and dominating' type are finding
Increasing opportunities for their
participation in business, govern
ment and the professions.' Their
inclinations for marriage not be
ing as strong as their desires for
power and successful careers,
they will not be so pFone to mar
ry. .- " v ' '
' This should naturally result in
a selective process eliminating all
but the more feminine women
whose whole lives lie in love and
their . homes. What effect this
selective process will have on the
men of the"future is yet another
problem. - ,

though there are frenty of mea
who would be pleased to offer
$10,000 for the liquor taken la
this case, the court says there i?

RULE OP THE RED
The celebration of the Rusaian
scviets Is based upon the amaz
ing supposition that the Bolshe
vist have accomplished something
to be proul of. They have had
five years of power and Lenin and
are observing it by ordering that
ayard of red Hag be flown from
thefoof of every habitation In air
Russia. The red is. presumed to
represent the achievements ,'ot the
Commune. In a way it does. The
Ufe tyood of a once competent and
industrlou people has been rather-
thoroughly, drained away. . So
far as the outside world may ken
the soviet regime bas resulted in
throwing ... the nation, with the
greatest man - power" upon tho
charity of the world. No mere
war could have done this. Russia
under the czars would have been
productive and self sustaining by
this time, even after the trage
dies of the-field of Mars. Russia
may survive, but can never for
get the tragedies of soviet rule.

competent value.- The theft of 0
cases of Old Crovrand 20 cases nl
Pommery didnojt. constitute grand.
larceny. A charge of petty lar

THE SHORT STORY, JR. )

Old Unci Joe pulled his Veard
and looked Cworried It waa-ihe

w.th black paint, lips with red, - strange word in the last five min
utes. First, as he was passing
twor girls on' the other Ide ; of
the street he saw. them point di
rectly at him and then . both
screamed ZItz!" When he look
ed, 'back, a. moment later they
turned-red and giggled until he
was out of .sight.
' Now. he hadjust passed two
high school students and hewaal
sure that he heard' one of them
excitedly whisper I'ZIfx?, as h
passed. Uncle Joe thought sadly
that '-the younger generation naraa
getting sillier every day. iBtzt
when on the next "' corner 'the
grandson of . hispid friend Sarii
Parks punched his Companion .and
they both hissed "Zitz" in Mh
other's . - ears, he decided -that
either he or all the young peo
ple of the town : had , gon crazy:
What did that mysterious Word
mean , anyway? 4 He .had t never
heard. it before., He concluded
that he Would stop in the library
nd,look it up In the dictionary.
; A group .of young people was
gathered' on the steps of the lib
rary. , As Uncle Joe passed it
sounded to him like a number
of fire crackers going off, "Zitz,
Zitx, Zltx." Uncle Joe began to
look scared. It surely must be
he. All the young people of the
town could not be going crazy
ct tho same. time.
There v was no such word in
the dictionary. Yes, It was as hot
had always feared. He was going
to get queer and childish, in bis
old age." But what" a strango way
to be affected, to be hannted by
6 'ord and to Imagine tbat;very
one was whispering it. '. Hi never

thought he'd better stop in and
see his old friend. Dr. Sam Parks.
Maybe he could explain it.
- Uncle Joe thought he had never
seen Dr. Sam look so old and
haggard. He sat slumped down
in his chair, dejectedly, pulling
his beard in a way bo had when
something worried ,hir.. Joe fell
Into the first chafr and immedi

amazement, s ' '"
"Joe,' he cried, it can't be

children whisper that confounded
word when I come Into the
room." - .
- Joe was encouraged. Ithewaa
going crazjr, Dr. gam wis, too
so he would have company.
Here comes Dick now. Ask him
what it all means," he said
Dick looked embarrassed at his
grandfather's "question. "Well,
you see," he said, "It's a game
we play. Everytime - you see a
man with whiskers you yell
Zitz to the person you are with-
When you have 13 'Zitzes he has
to treat you to an ice cream
The old men (pulled itheir
beards and tried not to laugh in
And a billy goat counts the
