that he has a popular following
perfunctory and manufactured. : -
Johnson is the logical candidate of the republican senatorial
'clique. which has killed the peace treaty. He was one of the
three senators with whom Lodge packed the senate committee to
obtain an adverse report on the peace treaty. He has capitalized
the discontent created by the republican leaders in blocking re
construction legislation and attacking the president He has I
rallied to his standard the un-American and foreign elements andj
radical labor element by his attacks upon the peace treaty and
upon everything that is. He offers no constructive policy and ap-
parently does not need to. , I
(If the republican convention is to oppose the peace treaty.j
Johnson is the logical candidate. ' If Johnson is not named, no;
other candidate can secure his support and his followers will i
probably bolt with him and form a third party, for Johnson be
longs to the rule or ruin type of politicians. His supporters are
'as much opposed to the "Old Guard" as to Wilson democracy.
It looks as if the republican party will be hopelessly divided be
tween its conservatives and radicals, with an excellent chance of
the radicals bolting as in 1912.
. If the republican convention is to favor the ratification of the
,peace treaty, Herbert Hoover is the logical candidate, for he is
the only candidate who has openly favored it. Only Hoover's
nomination can insure republican success, for he is progressive
Enough to hold the liberals who might follow Johnson into a third
party, and his nomination would draw enough independent and
democratic votes to offset any loss of radicals.
Says the New York World : "Hiram Johnson is the whirlwind
from the sowing of the republican leaders in congress since the
armistice was signed, and the republican party will be lucky in
deed if the whirlwind does not develop into a cyclone at Chicago
in June," - : , .
Senator Alec LaFollette, who never favored a bond issue
has declared in favor of the 4 per cent constitutional bond lim
itation amendment, after having vigorously fought the measure
in the senate. Wonders will never cease.

' THE ANCIENT THEME.
'.When there is naught else to inspire the Scottish bard, he
takes his lyre, and sings about the heather, and oftentimes I envy
him ; for when my stock of themes is slim, I've nothing but the
weather. Today my head is working wrong, I cannot chant a de
cent song, my thoughts al run together; and I'm afraid some
angry hick may through my window throw a brick if I ring in
the weather. And yet there's nothing else, ods fish! There s
nothing else, though much I wish to write some deathless stanzas;
you may have other themes in mind; the weather's all that I can
find, oiit here in bleeding Kansas. The weather comes, - the
weather goes; sometimes it rains, sometimes it snows, again it
ups and freezes ; and it embraces all there is of thaws that'melt,
of storms that whiz, of fogs and mists and breezes. I've worn
the weather out, I fear; I've sung about it, year by year, in high
and burning phrases; I've raved about it when 'twas cold, and
I've reared up, to paw and scold, when it was hot as blazes. It's

you want a boy," he observed.
"I certainly do," said Rusty Wren.
"What's your name?"
"They call me 'Chippy, Junior," .."
the youngster told him.
"Is that so?" Rusty exclaimed.
"Then your father must be Mr. Chip

on the wall by the roadside."
Chippy, Jr., nodded brightly. And
when he - said, "Chip, chip, chip.

be no doubt about it.
"Wait Just a moment," he told
Chippy, Jr. "I want to speak to my
wife about you." And then he darted
back into his house. ,
"My dear," he said to Mrs. Rus

Mrs. Rusty admitted. "But don't you
know that the Chippys are bigger
than we are? Not much bigger, to be
sure. But Mr. Chippy certainly
couldn't get through out doorway."
"Quite true, my love!" Rusty Wren
agreed. "But It's his son rnot h
that wants to work for us. And this
young lad is not full grown. I should
say he was hardly my size."
Though his wife hesitated, she
could think of no further objection.
So at last she told Rusty that he
might ask Chippy, Jr., to come back
early the next morning.
"But I have a feeling that this is
going to lead to trouble," she said
once more. Rusty Wren said, "Non
sense!" He was overjoyed at the
prospect or having a spry young
helper. And he hurried out to tell
Mr. Chippy's son that he might start
to work at daybreak.
That polite young man touched his
cap again, promised that he would
return without fail, and then went
chip-chipping away toward home, for
it was already his bedtime.

"Oh, Alice, you knew, and you still
know, that 1 am heartbroken. I think
almost the last conscious thought 1
expressed was that I was going to
tell John the entire truth; that I was
going to tell him that 1 could not live
with him any longer, and we both,
agreed that, ns long as I had no child

John to separate from him. For al
though you have said that you dd not

how he would b otherwise. Alice,

"I do," said Alice, unexpectedly re
versing her attitude on the subject,
"I think it Is much better that child
ren should be brought up in an at
mosphere of peace and happiness,
and I know that Ruth's children are
getting this, than it Is for them to
be where there are always quarrels
and bickerings and black looks."
"There have never been any bick

and me, Alice," I said, "and I do not
think we have many real quarrels.

"Whenever I have found fault with
John for something he has done, he
has always put me aside with a little
mile, and said: 'Oh, you are not
yourself now, you are ttot feeling
well.' Always attributing it to some
physical aliments. That has been one
of my greatest hurts. He would never
understand when I tried to show him
my heart, that it was my heart that
was aching and not my body."

timidate land owners and compel
them to sell have been added lately tc
Ireland's other troubles. The disturb
ances are a revival of conditions which
precalled 30 or more years ago when
farmers and graziers were forced by
similar methods to sell large land
The malcontents complain that most
of the good land tn the south and west
of Ireland is bfctng used for grazing
purposes and that they are unable to
purchase it. Consequently they have
resorted to the "cattle drives" and
threuts of bodily harm to the owners.
It is very difficult to police all the
country and many of the drives have
resulted in thrse or four farmers los
ing ill their cattle at one swoop.
The intimidators are represented as
renters who are demanding longer
leases of bind, small owners and a cer
tain n.umber of holders of compara
tively large tracts who believe their
neighbors' land used for grazing is
niore suitable for tillage than the
ground they are trying tb cultivate.
"Its the same story again of the
eighties," said a former south of Ire
land land holder. . They forced us to
cut up our large holdings then by use
of the same methods now employed."

fused with crimes resulting from the
