have Senator Borah explain that he read the future in
the cards he held in a certain poker game, and is there

the destiny of this great and glorious nation.
Senators' Lodge and Poin dexter do not give any par

A medical authority says that "the minimum heat
production of basal metabolism is increased 17 per cent
by merely chewing gum" by which jargon he seems to sig

make yourself 17 per cent hotter. Moral:' Save your gum

As long as the average human being is so willing , to
be caught and so eager to fall for every new wile of the
swindler he will step into every trap set for him. Wheth
er the crook uses handsomely embossed stationery as evi
dence of reputable position and prosperity, or whether

for nothing, he continues to catch his thousands of dupes.

.There is one ray of hope. Green goods and gold
bricks have about disappeared from the swindler s mar
ket The public was ridiculed and laughed out of the
habit of purchasing gold bricks. The jokesters and comic
cartoonists may be said to have assisted the authorities
in ridding us of that particular pest. Perhaps if a great
nation-wide laugh could be started and directed against
the foolish ones who' are caught by the mail-order frauds,
' these too would be put out of business by a slump in, trade.
The kind of man who "bites" for these things usually
hates worse to be laughed at than fleeced.
WHY SMOOT OPPOSES LEAGUE.
According to a dispatch in' the Oregonian, Senator
Reed Smoot, g. o. p. leader of the senate and Mormon
apostle, opposes the" League of Nations because it doesn t
fit in with the revelations of one Joseph Smith, star pro
phet, it 8.3'ema, of the Church of Latter Day Saints and
Plural Wives. .: ' 1 . .

A Russian paper complains of the scant recognition

"Tsithotenouchforvou?" It's a silly, idle question;
and it makes me sad and blue, and it gives me indigestion.
I could stand the sizzling heat, and look pleasant in my
sorrow looking forward to some sleet, or a snowstorm on
the morrow; I can take the cheerful view; till some jay
comes up inquiring, "Is it hot enough for you?" when
with heat I am expiring. Then my rage I scarce can quell,
and my ire I scarce can bridle, and I feel my bosom swell
with emotions homicidal. Commonly Tin meek and mild,
yearning for a: life of quiet, but this question drives me
wild, and I gladly hail a riot. - Commonly I sing and smile,
lM.it this query, vain and brutal, always seems to stir my
Wle, makes me feel that peace is futile. Calmly in the heat
I stew, till I hear some fellow asking, "Is it hot enough
for you?" Then I cease my patient basking. Then my
war paint I put on, green and crimson, blue and yellow,
and I strew the sunstruck lawn with the fragments of that
fellow. It is hot enoirgh for me; all my organs melt to
gether; I'd be swinish, you'll agree, if I asked for hotter
weather. . : ;; '
