FLAX-GROWING EXPERIMENT SUCCESSFUL
When that wedding in Vancouver was in danger of
being stopped just because the groom and his best man
had only $4.95 "between them, while the laws of Washing
ton required that $3 be pungled for a marriage license,
the bride came to the rescue and saved the day by digging
up the nickel. Let us hope she will never discover that
she paid too much for one wedding. '
Irvin Cobb is said to be a humorist. He may be, but
his stories from the Chicago conventions were about as
dry reading as ever came over the wires. It may be the
subject was too funeral in character to permit of any
humor .being injected into it, but whether that was the
reason for Cobb's utter falling down or Hot, his letters
were decidedly punk.

While seme mistakes have been made in the manage

has proven a success. In short, it has established the fact
George Ade said: "A hair lip is a misfortune, and a
club foot a deformity, but whiskers are a man's own

a very profitable crop in the future. Last year the state
paid the farmers $8,000 for their crop, and have 000 acres
under contract for this year, which is all it was thought
expedient to handle, although a much larger acreage
might have been secured. The experience of the past
year will prove valuable in the handling of tlr.1 crop this
year, and there is little doubt but the growers and the
state will both find the business profitable.
The initial mistakes have not been serious and no
doubt a great deal of the criticism indulged in has been
ill-timed when all the circumstances surrounding such an
experiment are taken into consideration. There is no
doubt that we have in this state enterprise the begin

The new Women's party claims to have "$500,000 in
cash and a million dollars worth of brains." They prob-4
ably have the cash, but their conducting ot their campaign
indicates they have not individually ami collectively even
a nickel's worth of material to think with, in the political
way. Their course is such that every state that has not
granted them the franchise will refuse to do so. The
men will not consent to disfranchise themselves or to
create a new political division in which the women would

Colonel Roosevelt says he is "out of politics." This
being true, he ancTMr. Bryan are at last in the same class.
They may travel tandem, but if hitched as a span, the in
side checks will have to be let out to the last hole.
Irvin S. Cobb having failed to find anything funny or
even "humorous" at the Chicago job lot of conventions, is
now at St. Louis trying for a joke or two among the
democrats. So far he has been unable to find it.
The rather startling announcement is made in today's
dispatches that the delegation of women at St. Louis ad
vocating suffrage will do their work in shifts.
After all does it make much difference what Roosevelt
does, or Bryan either? The real issues will be fought
out between Wilson and Hughes.

It looks as though there might be a general strike of

was reached by which the men went back to work with)'
all their demands granted, pending a linai settlement ot tiS
the dispute. It seems the unions at several points refused i t if

looked as though the matter would be settled amicably,

Senator Chamberlain is going somewhere to be made
a Doctor of Law. It is proper that he should have the
title, for he has been doctoring laws for the past twenty
years, without showing a healthy one.
Another convict has escaped from the penitentiary.
He evidently has not kept track of the parole list or he
would have waited, and walked out with a pardon, or at
