MILK SUPPLY TROUBLES
On top of its street car troubles New York is having
a milk famine, caused by the dairymen's league which has
a corner on the supply and purposes fixing the price.
The peculiar feature of it is that it is the first strike ever
recorded among what may be classed as the farmers, and
they have adopted the same tactics so often tried by
labor, always to its hurt, that is of trying to accomplish
their ends by force. The strike or whatever it is, so far
has developed several cases of seizing the other fellows
milk and refusing to allow him to take it to market. One
seizure of this kind yesterday was of 25,000 quarts.
Dealers have drawn on far-away points in an effort to
supply their customers but admit they will be unable to do
this. The city uses 2,500,000 quarts daily and yesterday
was shy half this amount and today three-fourths. Hos
pitals and the babies are given what there is and the
adult Gothamite, who is a cheerful sort of chap apparent
ly, takes his oats and other fodder for breakfast without
its usual supply of cream. He drinks his coffee black and
puts sugar on his cereals instetad of the lacteal, and grins
just like he liked it that way. If the shortage keeps up
perhaps old Daddv Knickerbocker will learn to eat bacon
and eggs for breakfast instead of fooling his stomach
with horse provender. Its all right perhaps for city
folks to drink milk and guzzle cream; they get it out of a
bottle; but how a farmer can do it and then go out and
look a poor calf in the face while he is carrying the calf's
breakfast around concealed about his person is a puzzle.
Is it any wonder that bossy occasionally kicks over the
bucket under such treatment?
SENATOR LEWIS' GREAT FEAT
WOMAN MAKING GOOD
Senator James Hamilton Lewis commonly known as
"Jim Ham," has come into the limelight politically in a
most wonderful manner. It seems but a short time ago
since he was the congressman from the state of ash
ington and a good many of us were disposed to poke fun
at him on account of his name and his sorrel color. We
overlooked the fact that sorrel is the color of the
thoroughbred and we failed to observe a good many
other things until lie had quit the West and gone to
Chicago. Almost before anyone even suspected him of
being in politics back there he had put the reverse Eng
lish on the usual political game, and was elected to the
United States senate from the great state of Illinois; go
ing East and growing up with the country and thus
balancing up with the crowd that comes from the east
and before they get acquainted with the geography of
the west want to hold the offices and show us how to run
the state government,. or go to congress to represent us.
Senator Lewis deserves a medal for giving the east a
touch of the medicine it prescribes for the west. It might
le added that a man must have some genuine merit to do
what Lewis has; invade Chicago and get away with the
The question just now bothering some of the eastern
marine folks is whether the much-discussed ami long-expected
Bremen was born or made twins or triplets. es
terday it was announced that the French had captured
her and so had the English, so there was at least two of
her. If there was a hatching of Bremens instead of .a
launching she mav come in yet or some of the flock may.
Most folks have about come to the conclusion there was
no such diver, and if two of her have been caught they
are surely neither of them the one we have watched for
so long. , . P ,
Misfortunes never come single for the reason that
though that kind of Fortune is prefixed by "Miss" the
lady is married and has a large and obstreperous family.
It is observed that when she pays a fellow a visit she
generally brings the whole family along with the old man
with her, and makes her stay indefinite. These few bits
of wisdom are due to the fact that while gasoline is up
around the two-bit figure, comes the statement that the
dealers in many places according to reports reaching the
Secretary of Commerce, are giving short measuve.
The emancipation of woman is accomplished, and she
is taking her place in all fields. She has always had a
free hand in literature, art and music; but outside of
these until recently she was barred from practically all
other pursuits. Now she has entered all branches and it
is well for humanity that she has, for her skill, her in
ventive genius and her painstaking researches are bear
ing abundant fruit.
Daily we hear of some discovery due to woman's en
trance into science. It was a woman who first separated,
as it were discovered the most rare, as well as the most
valuable and "wonderful of all metals, radium. A page
could be easily filled with discoveries due to woman with
in the past few years, some of them of vast importance.
Monday the dispatches told of another achievement of
one of these who has been delving deep into chemistry
and who has discovered a process ior producing liquid
rubber that makes the water proofing of any substance
possible. In her demonstration of the process she water
proofed tissue paper without injuring its flexibility as
one test, which shows that almost anything can be treated
and made water proof by her discovery. That it will
bring wealth to her and provide another great conven
ience for humanity goes without saying, as does the fact
that the future may show genius on the 'distaff side of
the race that will rival that of an Edison or a Burbank.
It might also be added that the world will be benefited
much more by the researches of such women as these
than by any number of train loads of wealthy snobbery
done up in silks and laces and jumping into the political
field to show us benighted westerners how we should vote.
Lad Saved Four Lives,
Carnegie Fund Asked to
Recognize His Heroism
The crop of candidates for city recorder, already
large, is like the car shortage, still growing. Petition
circulators were busy yesterday and are still so, and the
average man looks on it that it is a free for all race and
.-igns up indiscriminately for all applicants although he
can vote for but one.
The Southern Pacific has made application to the
Public Service Commission for permission to grant the
same rates to the Grants Pass sugar factory to Oregon
points as are in force from California to the same points.
As the haul is less than half the distance the request it
would seem should be granted and then somo.

tle that pennant proposition' the country might get a
chance to turn some thought to the election and Hughes,

that is that there is no dispute about saving the survivors

shorter like an honest, fair-minded shortage ought to

"'The toiler needs a good vacation, a time of
rest and recreation," We hear the sages
say; "for work, without an intermission,
without a fortnight off for :fishin will
make him old and gray." This year I shut
down on my labors, and, emulating sportive
neighbors, I toured, on pleasure bent; I
basked beside some golden fountains, and
climbed a bunch of snow-capped moun-
IffW" yfv4 tains, and slumbered in a tent. I thought
w 'wirf that, to my work returning, my bosom
would with zeal oe burning, and 1 would
cut much grass; refreshed by fourteen days of resting,
I'd sail into my labors jesting and make things come to
pass. Alas, the grind seems twice as dreary, and I am
twenty times as weary as when I went away; the task
ahead seems harder, bigger, and, wanting all my old time
vigor, I sigh, "Alackaday!" I do not care for more vaca
tions; I'll stick to work and earn my rations, if I'm alive
next year; of course, they are a thing of beauty, but they
unfit a man for duty, and put him out of gear.

I had written Clifford when I should

note telling me to remain as long at I
wished, as their cruise was likely to be
an extended one. He sent messages to
the family, but I thought a peculint
look came into father's face when I told
him of the yachtine trip. He asked
some questions. I was compelled to tell
him there were ladies in the party, and
that I had not been invited.
