ACCIDENT TO MR. ROOSEVELT.
Tho accident to Mr. Roosevelt yes
terday illustrates the point that a
person holding tho position of presl
dent of the United States should not
take any more risk of life than is ab
solutely necessary. If Roosevelt had
eon killed it would have completely
revolutionized the organization of the
department of state. It would have

Personally, his death would not be
ware deplorable than that of a com
son citizen, but politically and na
- tonally It would have been the most
deplorable death In modern times.
He represents the greatest nation on
arih. He has filled a place for which
fie world feared that he was incapar
Rated. The death of McKiniey. under
a prosperous administration, alarmed
&e-people at the thought of finding
fa the Rough Rider a competent suc
cessor. But Roosevelt has proved
Mmself equal to the emergency in
urery k particular. Such cases are
rare, and nine times out of ten -it
puld never occur again.
The chief executive of this great
nation owes it to the people to use
extraordinary care of his life. He
sbould not take any more risk than
lis duties absolutely demand. He is
ot expected to remain cooped ur
Eke a pope or king who is afraid of
his head, but he should not take the
risks of everyday people. Traveling
wound over the country and making
crand stand plays and receiving ova
tions does not do the government
any particular good, and such an Itin
erary is not intended for the good of
the country. It is work performed
ftrr political purposes. It Is a vote
catcher. "With ordinary care in the
.regular discharge of his duties the
president's risk would be smaller. He
tumid not take any more than Is ab
wotuteJy necessary. He can get all of
the recreation he needs In a more
private and secluded and less hazard
as way. Mingling with the public
on unnecessary occasions, placing
JSSmself on equal risk with the every
day citizen. Is not proper. He is no
iotter, it is true, but his position is

ecirtive of the nation to mingle

timent, but practically, and for the
good of the government, he should

The flood of immigration will begin
to arrive In a few days. No booming
should bo done, but the new comers
should be given a welcome reception
and told the facts about this country.
Men who settle here with a full
knowledge of all of the facts about
this country will never have cause to
regret It. But if men were induced to
go to heaven under false pretenses
they would never be contented there.
The smallest and cheapest fool In
the country Is the one who persists
in selling liquor to Indians. A man
who will continually risk a term in
the penitentiary for the few cents
profit he makes oft of the sale of n
bottle of liquor, would be better off
in the penitentiary all of the time,
and his country would be a greater
gainer than he.
Quay now says he will stop the
strike. Quay has done a great num
ber of things, but If he should stop
the strike It would redeem him from
many of his sins.
The death of Dr. Eggleston, the
nthor of the "Hoosler Schoolmaster"
and other books, will cause regret
throughout the country. Nb one whe
ever read the "Hoosler Schoolmas
ter" will ever forget tho pleasure re
ceived from IL Next to "Uncle Tom's
Cabin," prior to the publication of
"Ben Hur." it was undoubtedly the
Bost popular novel In this country

&os never been equalled.
California democrats demand the
public ownership of water under the
irrigation laws. The idea of a dem
ocrat wanting water would set a
nothing of the more effective Individ
ual demand or of the Increasing ex
portation. The census, In its report
on wholesale slaughtering and meat
packing, moreover, shows an Increase
of but 2 per cent for the doende."
In explanation of tho margin ot
profits there Is for tho former In rais
ing nnd fattening cattle for morkot
the report says: "Cattle good to ex
tra Bteers on January 1 last sold in
Chicago at J6 12 per hudred
pounds. The average in the same
animals at a corresponding date li
the twelve previous years had been
?5 05. A steer weighing 1200 pounds
ot the higher rate brought but J73.50,
or only about J29 more than the cost
of the corn for fattening. This lnttor
sum had to include tho labor ot feed
ing, transportation to market, profit
on money invested whonlt was insuf
ficient to cover the chief Item the
cost of the steer when ready for corn
feeding. As a result cattle had to go
higher, and there has been a gradun
advance during the spring and sum
mer of the present year."
This clear statement of tho situa
tion shows first that If we are to ex
pect our farmers to fatten beef for
our tables we must be willing to pay
them a fair price for It; and, second,
that if we wish to prevent beef from
going higher still we would do well
to take stepB at once to preserve the
pastures of the vast ranges now in
the hands of the government. These
pasture are rapidly being destroyed
by overstocking with both cattle and,
sheep. It Is a simple problem of sup-j
ply and demand that confronts us, '
and it will be our own fault if we doi
not make the supply Increase instead,
FOR THE MAN WHO FAILS.
WHY BEEF IS HIGH.
Fred C. Croxton, an attache of the
department of labor at "Washington,
has recently made public the results
of a prolonged Investigation of con
ditions affecting the price of beef
in this country. He has arrived at
conclusions which give little promise
of any great reduction of present
prices. Virtually he says that a few
years ago the price of beef was so
low the farmers could not get what
they deemed'a remunerative price for
there cattle, and as a consequence
they did not raise bo many of them.
Should there be another era of low
prices It would have about the same
Owing to the Increased prosperity
following the enactment of a protect
ive tff nftai fhrt lanermna Prnprl
ment with democratic free trade'
there has been an increased consumpi
tlon of beef by the people, and, more
over, the population has at the same
time Increased, so that the demand
is thus much larger than It was lr
the bad years. There has been, fur
thermore, an Increase in the foreign
demand. Comparing the exports for
the five years ending June 30, 1901,
with the five years preceding that pe
riod, It appears that the number of
cattle exported Increased nearly 20
per cent, the total quantity of fresh
beef Increased 47.4 per cent, while
canned beef showed a decrease of
31.8 per cent, and salted, pickled and
other cured beef a decrease of 18.4
While the demand for fresh beef
was thus Increasing both at home
and abroad, the supply was checked
by the effect of the low prices of the
previous bad years. Croxton- saya:
U seems that several years of low
prices had discouraged the raising ot
cattle. There was an advance In the
early fall of 1889 which tended to
bring into market all available ani
mals. The. next spring prices de
clined somewhat, but since that time
there has been a gradual advance
and, until the end of 1901, a heavy
marketing of cattle. The census of
fice makes a statement that there was
probably a decrease of about 7 per
cent in the number of cattlo bewteen
the taking of the 11th and 12th cen
The world Is a snob, and the man
Is the chap for his money's worth;
And the lust for success causes half'
the sins '
That are cursing this brave old
For Its fine to go up, and the world's
Is sweet to the mortal ear;
But the man who falls in a noble
Is a hero that's no less dear.
'Tis true enough that the laurel
Twines but for the victor's brow;
For many a hero has lain him down
With naught but the Cyprus bough.
There are gallant men In the losing
And as gallant deeds are done
As ever grace the captured height,
Or the battle gTandly won.
We sit at life's board with our nerves
And we play for the stakes of fame,
And our odes are sung and our ban
For the man who wins the game.
But I have a song of another kind
That breathes in these fame
As ode to the noble heart and mind
Of the gallant man who falls.
The man who is strong to fight his
And whose will no front can daunt
If the truth be truth, and the right be
Is the man that the ages want.
Tho' he fall and die In grim defeat
Yet he has not fled the strife,
And the house of earth will seem
For the perfume of his life.
