with Wood a poor third. It is between a League of Nations
candidate and an opponent of the league. Wood's candidacy,

Those, who would liberalize the republican party, make
America a member of the League of Nations, provide a business
instead of a political administration, should work earnestly from

There is just one reason for the high price of sugar, and that
is greedy profiting.
Shortage of sugar is alleged but there is no shortage. In
stead there is a corner.
Statistics compiled by the National City bank show sugar im
portations for the present year the largest in history, with heavy
exports. The Cuban crop exceeds that of the previous year. Eng
land and France have imported huge stocks from Java. The
,iugar crop in India is larger than for years. Germany is manu
facturing sugar upon a large scale and exporting half of the out
put. The law of supply and demand has been superceded bv arti
ficial control. Agreement and combination have replaced com
petition. Those who control the machinery of supply make fab
ulous profits at the expense of the consumer.
During the war, sugar was controlled by the government and
the price held down. The sugar board prevented extortion and
regulated distribution. With peace, the government has with
drawn its control and an era of unexampled profiteering has fol
lowed the restoration of sugar to private control.
With the restoration of normal conditions, the resumption of
1 A! .1 1 ii I . .
priiuucuon ana snipping, rne law oi supply and demand will nrob-
ably re-assert itself. If it does not, the people will undoubtedlv
demand government control of essentials in peace as well as war.
I Repugnant as federal control and bureaucracy may be, it is an
alternative to be preterred to the robbery of all the people by
private monopoly. If it comes, it will be due directly to the pro
fiteers. ' ;..
Despite the noise of candidates and their managers, old
General Apathy still commands the rank and file. In none of the
presidential primary contests has more than a small fraction of
the registered vote been cast.
When arrives the month of May, winter's gone, beyond dis
pute; which reflection makes us gay, and our loud bazoos we toot.
It is good to go to bed, twenty minutes after ten, knowing that
the storms we dread for long months won't come again. It is
good to vise at morn in a balmy atmosphere, gazing on the
sprouting corn, and the playful colt and steer. May's a pifipin
and a peach, o'er whose charms all bards enthuse; of the pebbles
on the beach, she's the one the wise boys choose. Oh, a month
ago we felt that the winter might return ; and the sleet again
might pelt, and there might be Bnow to burn. And it kept' us
in suspense, and the weather prophets all were forever on ,the
fence, knowing not what might befall. And a month from now
we'll fry in. the superheated air; and' no doubt the passers-by
will forgive us when we swear, But May brings us no distress,
m her genial smiles we bask ; climate as we go to press, is the
smoothest man could ask. It's the month that hits the spot, after
winter, cold and drear; every other month, I wot, should be May
throughout the year. ,

Chippy, Jr., at once let out a Mriglit
ened tone. "But If we can't stir him, I
don't know what we'll do." And she
began to shriek.
"Don't worry!" Rusty shouted."Just
say hen you're ready."
"I'm ready now," she replied.
"One, two, three all together!"
Rusty Wren commanded. And he seiz
ed the head of Chippy, Jr., and began
pulling as .hard as he knew how.
Chippy, Jr., at once let out a fright
"Stop! stop!"- he begged. "I don't
know what the trouble is, but I (eel as
i( I should break In two!"
"Well, well!" exclaimed Rusty. And
then to his wife he said: "Were you
pushing or pulling?" - .
. "Pulling!" she explained. "I was
tugging on his coat tails."
"Ah! That as the trouble," Rusty
told poor Chippy, Jr., who looked quite
distressed. "I was trying to pull you
out; and she waa trying to pull you In.
But you mustn't mind a mistake like
''Very well!" said Chippy, Jr., meek
ly. "But please don't do it again.
"Now " Rusty directed hie wife,
so that she might understand clearly
what was required of her "now you
must push while I pull."
All their efforts, however, failed to
move the unfortunate Chippy, jr. He
remained wedged tightly in the door
way. And af last lusty declared that
they might aa welVstpp trying to get
him through it. .. . u
"What you' must do now," he dl

his head. And In that ay we may be

That plan worked better. In a short

Before I wrote John I received n
telegram from him saying he was com
ing down on tho afternoon train. Evl
dently someone had telegraphed him I
was ill again, for his wire said: "I am
very much worried about you. lie
sure and take enre of yourself until I
can eomo and take care of you."
I didn't want John to come. 1 was a
cowiud. I know If he came and took
me In his arms and said the nice
things to me that only ha can say I
should love him again with all my
heart. Strange, Isn't It, that a coming
child weaves a magnetic chord be
tween man and wife when they have
nothing else in common. Before we
wero married the glamor of love was
over us both. We talked of nothing ex
cept ourselves and each other. In that
whirlwind of three weeks of John's
courtship every one of. my brain facul
ties was lulled to sleep by the magne
tism of .his presence.
One of the Itrasonx.
Tt seems to me that this Is one of
the reasons why the modern marriage
Is so often unsuccessful, neither really
knows the other, even though the
courtship lasts much longer than mine
Love Is one thing and married life
Is quite another,
I have come to feel that Alice Is
right. She has many Interests besides
marriage which take up her time. She
has heroine Interested in the' affairs of
the modern woman and her husband
Is perfectly willing that she should be.
They are good pals and friends, but I
do not think they have ever been lov-;
ers. I'm quite sure that the modern
novel, the modern drama, and above
nil the modern movie exerts a bad In
fluence upon modern young men and
women. They're always preaching1
Love 1 nil. "
You see, we Americans are uch
emotional people. In no other country
in the world Is delirious and romantic
love deemed the only thing that Is nec-
erautry to a sueccsniul marriage, in
fact, delirious and romantic love Is not
deemed necessary to all to a successful
niarrlnire anywhere except In America. I
The French sharply define lov ns one
thing nnd marriage another.
iHirlng my stay abroad It seemed to
. me. thai 1 had never known a happier
life lh;in in the houses of my friends,
j most of whose marrUge had been
i made French fashion by the fathers
! and mothers, for the sake of financial
; or family reason.

women are coming to feel as the
French do. I know, for when two or
three of them are gathered together
there Is always at least one, If not two,
who have very radical views on the
subject of murriage.
Tho other day, when Alice and I
were talking, she said, "I believe in
making murriage very hard and di
vorce very easy." When I repeated this"
to John he was horror struck. Ho hud
tho old ideas, the old traditions In re
gard to the man "until death do us
part," while for a man, if '"is 'eart
Is true to Pol," nothing else matters,
lie is free to love as did the old sailor
in tho song, a girl In every port.

and It Is A partnership like no other in

partnership that one can not break
honorably if one feels that It li unbear

ing modern thought has gone a great
ways in this broadening direction ,yet
more or less suspicion always attaches
to the divorced woman.
Tastee Very Much Alike,
Today I feel that If I were absolute
ly free, 1 would never marry another
man, and yet I believe that I could
really be very happy with Charlie, al
though I never thought of marrying
him. In many wave our tastes are very
much Mike, and yet I have never cared
for him in the way that I have loved
John. Karl Shepard has flattered me
with his attentions, but he, too, I can
see, cares for me only In the way that
Today I want no more of the tur
moil and thrills of this thing that we
call love. I want to rest and to be quiet
and to be alone. Several years ago I
read a poem about a woman who said
hat she wanted to be alone and free,
to feel how her back could bear bur
dens and how she could stand upright
on the wild moors and buffet the
winds. Ph wild she w tired of the
firelight and the comfort and the quiet
of her home, yet the poem ended:
"And at your kiss I grow
