the secret J : A. South End girl
would have given her neck to
find out. ! At least, , we fondly
supposed that she would.
But, as soon as the secret wat
whispered to; the Initiated, . right
after; she was made to eat onions
and spaghetti with her eyes blind
folded, she had to promise never
to tell a single soul, That is the
only way to keep: a 1 secret
It is really a wonder that more
people didn't guess our secret.
We lived up tothe name so well

one would have known. D. L. T.

very-well4 5 It's so , awfully, hard
always to remember to make
every one you tell the secret to
promise beforehand that she will
never tell. But I am sure I did
and so you can imagine how ter
ribly surprised I was when one
day our secret got out. .
I can remember yet the conster
nation when Philip, one of the
boys in our; class, announced In
the hall that D. 1. T. I stood for,
"Do little, Talk lots.- And the
contempt of the South End . girls
now that ! they knew our secret!

the United States. It had 53
in nnprfltion in 1921. with
It is worthy of note that out of this average only; 119,855
acres were harvested. This was due to .the fact that there
are in Hawaii three crops of cane in the ground at one time.
As one crop is being harvested, another is being planted,
while a third is being grown to be harvested from six to ten
months later. Cane matures in from 18 to 24 months.
During 1921, Hawaii t produced 564,562 Itons j of raw
sugar, or 4.71 tons per acre. The highest amount of sugar
produced on, one plantation was 48,500 tons and the lowest
537 tons, the average being 10,652 tons per plantation. Of
the total amount of sugar produced 488,869 tons were ex
ported. ' ' . , .J
This interesting information about an interesting sub
ject was gathered from a bulletin issued by the Bureau of
Statistics of the, United States Sugar Manufacturers' Asso
ciation. Washington. D. C.
Those who know anything about the sugar cane and cane
sugar industry in continental United States will realize that
the conditions are very different in Hawaii. It costs almost
twice as much to produce a ton of sugar in Hawaii as it does
in Cuba, while the cost in Louisiana is about three times the
Cuban cost. It is thus evident that we must either have a
tariff on sugar sufficient! to protect it from Cuban com
petition, or else we must abandon the industry and allow
Cubans to charge us what they please for the sugar which
we consume. Without domestic competition prices would go
"sky high." ; r j

A Traveling Buterfly U
Everybody knows that birds mi
grate yearly to warmer climates
as the1 chill of winter creeps
through their feathered coats, but
for a fragile butterfly to attempt
& long flight across mountains so
that his .lifo may endure longer
in a sunny climate is a strange
part of natural history. This
mystery belongs to the large red
monarch butterfly, one of the so
called "milkweed butterflies"
from the fact of its breeding on
the milkweed, f U '
The monarch may be found In
all parts of the United States and
Canada during the summer. The
insect here lives its life cycle of
transformation from egg to grub,
chrysalis and butterfly, and lays
eggs on the milkweed plants.
Then as autumn comes on, the
butterflies collect in large num
bers to begin a great trip to the
south or west where they may en
joy a mild winter. -
Perhaps the most remarkable
fact about these butterflies is that
they seem to have an innate sense
which makes! them seek; out the
trees which j were the winter
haunts of their parents the year
before. Here ; they live until
April, when the swarm scatters,
and by summer the butterflies
are dead. ;
n. October ; their children,
hatched from the eggs left on the
milkweed, begin to arrive, finding
the trees their elders left to them.

all my fault. I told Philip's sis

tell. She promised she wouldn't."

Evidently fired j with enthus
iasm by the spectacle of the suc
cess and. publicity achieved by
Margot Asquith in her all-revealing
biography, the Duke of Man
chester has ransacked the treas
ure, chest of his memory and pro
duced a thrilling , article in the
Sunday Herald of London. ,. The
Duke has been known for years
past as an indefatigable and pro
lific writer jof features, but the
Iate3t article! has aroused the
most excitement, as it reveals con
fidences and secrets between him
ind sundry-American millionaires
when he visited this country as an
eligible bachelor in the long ago.
The article teems with informa
tion regarding the fond and rich
fathers in this democratic land
who endeavored to lure him into
matrimony so that the family
might sport a duke as a son-in-law.
Names and dates are freely
furnished,' as is the fashion in
modern English revelations.
One famous mining man Is re
ported as saying, "Now, Duke,
what will you take to be my son-in-law?"
and when his grace re
fused the proffered , honor the
daughter naively inquired if it was
because her father's offer was
too meager and' would - he make
her his duchess if she doubled the
amount of cash to be given him?
Innumerable other episodes are
recounted1 of the attempts of the
irst families to ensnare him and
we might' wonder at his courage
in turning down such offers were
it not that he informs us that, he
Was already madly in love with
the girl who became his wife.
Now a discussion is raging " in
London as to whether the Duke
has -violated the traditions of no
bility In revealing ' these hitherto
buried secrets and gaining so
much publicity. Inasmuch as his
grace states that he is divided be
tween choosing a career in the
Hollywood films or the Canadian
gold : fields, with his preference
for the former, there may be
method in his bid for wide public
ity. '
- In the circumstances one may
be pardoned for joining in the
wondering inquiry of the young
lady' whom he scorned.
Senator Brookhart of Iowa has
returned to Washington from Eur
ope, ' after a sojourn of several
weeks as the guest of the Bolshev
ik! at Petrograd, with what he
considers very valuable informa
ion for the state department. So
great was his concern that he has
tened to call upon the secretary of
state the morning o't his arrival in
the national capital.1
Judging from the press reports
of his interviews with the news
paper men he seemed to expect
that the recognition of the Bol
shevist government would be con
cluded before the day ended. La
ter dispatches indicate, however,
that Secretary Hughes was not
very powerfully impressed by the
information imparted ; by . Senator
Brookhart. t , ;
It is possible that the secretary
of state knows something concern
ing the ' record j for accuracy of
Senator Brookhart as an investi
gator. Before leaving for Europe
the Iowa senator did some inves
tigating concerning the operation
of the American railroads. On
March 14 he disclosed to the
Prairie Club at Des Moines what
he had discovered. He said that
the operating expenses of the rail
roads in 1921 and 1922 under pri
vate operation were Jl, 200, 000,
.000 more per year than in 1919
udder government operation, de
spite the-fact that the wages paid
employes; were less than in 1918.
Like most of the senator's gen
eralizations, this would be highly
important. If true;' for it would
indicate, that the railroads were
charging excessive freight rates to
cover what might be termed "'wa
tered" operating expenses. But
the official reports of the inter
state commerce commission are a
flat contradiction of the senator's
figures. In 1919 the operating ex
penses of the railroads were $4,
399.715.515. In 1922 they were
14. 455.650.215. an increase of less
(than 156.000.000 In place of $1,-
200,000,000. - . :
; Accord 'ng to the Interstate u
commerce commission reports, the
wages paid to railroad employes
averaged f $179 a year more in
1921 and $136 a year more In
1922 than J919. -It Will be recall
ed that congress increased the
pay of the employees at the time
the roads were turned back to
their owners, so the- railroads are
still paying war-time wages. If
the average wage had been no
higher in 1922 than in 1919 the
cofetof operation would have been
$214,000,000 less.
When one stops to consider how
far. Senator Brookhart missed the
mark-in his statements concerning-our
railroads, where he had
every opportunity to get the facts,
one begins to appreciate how
much confidence the secretary of
state would be Justified in placing
in his reports ' concerning condi
tions in Russia.
Senator Brookhart is one of the
class of investigators who have a
faculty for seeing only what they
want to see. They make up their
minds about a condition first and
investigate afterward; and every
thing that fails to conform to
theirpreconceived opinions Is re
jected. ; ' :
No one will seriously doubt that'
the Bolshevik! were prepared to
supply the Iowa senator with sta
tistics to prove any assertion he
might want' to make. They have
a way In Petrograd of supplying
statistics while you wait. If Sen
ator Brookhart desired to place
his plea for recognition of the so
viet governmtnf on the argument
that the per capita wealth In Rus
sia is now greater than that in his
own" country the soviet commis
sioners would have supplied him
with duly attested statistics to
prove that assertion.''
When a reckless investigator
offers the testimony of scoundrels
to support his assertions the sec
retary of state is justified in mak
ing a few Independent investiga
tions before he' acts.' The state
department has maintained un
prejudiced investigators in Russia
forthe past two years; and it is
upon their reports, not - those of
strolling politicians, that the ad
ministration relies for its informa
tion. ' .
In his interview Senator Brook
hart relates that he visited . the
French foreign office in Paris -and
supplied it with, the information
he had gathered in Russia about
the stability of the government
and Its willingness to side with
France against Germany In return
for French recognition. As the
French government also main
tains its own investigators in Rus
sia it would be interesting to
know the opinion of the head of
the foreign office concerning Ibe
competency of United States sen
ators as Investigators.
Some other senators, by the
way, have been making personally
conducted investigation tours in
other parts of Europe this sum
mer. It' makes one fairly shudder
to consider the mass of misinfor
mation that will find its way into
the Congressional Record when
they are given "leave to print"
