return trip. Mr. White says that he
and his family enjoy every day of life
at their mountain home. Fine air,
fine scenery, with the sports, hunt
ing and fishing in season, all contrib
ute to the attractiveness of their
dwelling place. To show how nature
grants to them, at the same time, the
delights of entirely different seasons,
Mr. White relates that but a short
time ago his little son, Vivian, gath
ered buttercups near the grassy
banks of a mountain stream while he,
from the opposite bank, pelted the lad
with snow balls.

Watch for them.
Statistics have proven that only
one-half of one per cent of the
speeches made in Congress are lis
tened to. A great many Congress
men speak IN, but not TO, Con
gress. But every speech is published
in the record. They send the rec
ords back home to show "What
they told 'em up there in Washing
ton." Now the people back home
think Congress heard their "Lem"
tell 'em this.
Now, here is my scheme to stop
speech making. A Bill reading as
follows : "Congressional ' Record
must not only contain speech, but
number of members, and names
who listened to speech, and why."
For instance: "Congressman Post
Hole arose to a point of informa
tion and spoke at length on, 'Is
Locarno a town, or is it a Treaty?'
Length of speech, without waiting
for applause, four hours, thirty-six
minutes; attendance, Gout (Rep.
N. Y.) : 'Unable to get out.' Sixty
forty (Dem. N. J.) : 'Case of reci
procity, he listened to mine.' Low
brow (Rep. Mass.) : 'I was asleep,
even the good speakers haven't
woke me up.1 "
Now I claim that will stop some
speech making. The minute it gets
back home that "Lemmie" is talk
ing to himself up there, "Lemmie"
will stop talking.
You know why they won't listen
to anybody up there? They have
gone out to smoke, that's why, and
you know why they've gone out to
smoke? Whv, "Bull" Durham, of
course. IT'S BETTER THAN
ANY SPEECH EVER MADE.

The Reach of the Spoken Word
WHEN the smalV family
group of primitive man
expanded into the cave com
munity, a means of communi
cating beyond the normal range
of the voice became imperative.
Then someone discovered that
by making a speaking-trumpet
of hit hands, he could increase
the reach of the spoken word,
could add new effectiveness to
the human voice.
i Other means of transmitting
intelligence, in their turn, were
found to serve the needs of man:
the signal drum and the beacon
fire ; the written message, carried
by runner, by rider, by wateror by
rail; and finally, the telegraph.
But these messages, however
carried, lacked the direct and
personal qualities of conversa
tion. They were but symbols
of speech, the shadows of the
