LIFE'S Troubles come and troubles go, Never lingering very long, Fir.«t the winter with its snow, Then the springtime with its song. Tlien the summer filled with bloom, Happy skies above us all, Then a day of dark and gloom And the first cold frost of fall. Winter follows, long and drear, Bitterly the blizzards roar, SEASONS Then a robin's song we hear And the spring has come once more. So with lis, whoe'er we be. Trouble frets us for awhile, Hurt and grief'fall bitterly. Then it comes our time to smile. Joy is followed by the tear. Grief and all its hours of pain, Then a friendly voice we hear— Life is at the spring again. tCopyright, 1922, by Edgar A. Guest.) "HOLDING A HUSBAND Allele Garrison's New Phase of Revelations of a Wife •WHAT Lillian—with a pasteboard box in oiTher hand, held by one of the small wooden handles which shofls attach to big bundles—alighted from BB»OUGHT FROM THE CITY. lly. "I'll let you manage Mrs. Durkee—she's beyond me." THE SKY THE LIMIT. •There will be no Newberry scPiidal following this fall's election. This is assm'e because,there is no legal reason why any senatorial candidate should file his earnpaign expenses. He may epehd a million, if he has it to spend and is willing to turn it loose, and will never be under obligations to make the fact known. Tlie sky is the limit. This dangerous condition of things, not to say. outrageous, is another example of the notorious lack of accomplishments of the recent congi'ess. When the supreme coiirt knocked out the corrupt practices act, in the Newberry case, it was supposed that congress would hasten to pass another similar measure, correcting the, legal weakneses in the original act- • But congress failed to dp anything of the kind. In part, blame for this sin of omission is beihg blamed on Senator Spencer of Missojri. He was chairman Of a special sub-committee on privileges and elections, and he failed to call a meeting of -the committee. Mnally he went to Europe aiid left the matter in the hands of Senator Pomerene, •who-•after much delay, held a meeting of the committee at which only three members were present. At this meeting it was decided to recommend a bill.for passage, and it was duly presented^ but the republican congressmen were so engi-ossed with- the tariff that they didn't.have time to pass it. I This sort of neglect is not the kind that goes with gooa statesmanship. And it is not the kind that endears congressmen to their countrymen. Irrespective of the outcome of the Newberry scandal, or of ycfar opinion as to what should have been done about it, you are hot doubtful about the desirability of laws calculated to make it difficult for inoney to.purchase senatorships. In a republic it is as important to be protected against wealth as against povierty. Even under the most favoi-- able conditions, the rich candidate has an advantage. A'DO-NOTHINCf CONGRESS: There is no genei'al satisfaction with the work of the congress that hias adjoui-ned. Its record is pot one that can be pointed ;rko -vyith pride by the administration. Its i>rincipail accornplisihmeht was the enactment of a new tariff; %^nd there are malriy people who believe this new tariff embodies mistakes almost inhuinerable. The essential saving feature of the measui'e, fi-om the standpoint of republicans, is-the clause that will make it pqs* sibie for the Presideiit to adjust duties according to the cost of labor at home and abroad. Covering, as it does, soniany different articles, it •would at least seem that this means an extraordinary extension of the duties of a nation's •ex ecutiyfe; an extension to the point where he is sadly in danger of fulfilling no duty really well. Aside fi-om the tariff, the accomplishments of the congress were negligible indeed. The one measure that is admittedly good is the one that establishes the budget system in , government expenditures, and this is a project sought by several earlier administrations and is, in reality, a growth that can not be claimed particularly by the present administration: -Republican spellbinders will be sadly lacking for political thunder when they take the stump to tell how their grand old party has fought for the "dere pepul." They can not point With pAde to enough definite a.ccomplishments to maike an hours' speech, unless they sandwich,in^a" heterogenous pot- pouri of political literature such as they are always 'too glad to do. But this quality of material never really makes amy votes, so the administration adherents raiust be genuinely regretful over their do-nothing congress. A GOOD START. ~ . There can bono quarrel with the report of the g:rand "ury at Manpri. A .total of 214 indictments, 44 of them murder, 58 for cdnspiracy to commit murder and 54 for assa,ult to murder, sounds as if the grand jury was convinced that "somethftngf ought "to be done about it," irrespective of the attitude. ofi "bloody" Williamson county itself, and at least a pai-t of the citizens of Hei'rih. • ; Portions of 4;he report made in cbnnection with the indictments arie.,particularly notable. The chai-ge that the adjutant general of the state and the sheriff of Williamson county alternated in passing responsibility is just about what the newspa- ., per reports at the time claimed a:nd what the Mine Workers' . union indignantly denied. The inference i that the sheriff was afraid to' act. against the union men, or did not want to, because he is a union man himself and also because he might hurt him politically, is boldly stated in the grand jury's report, and Sheriff Thaxton will have an opportunity to explain in court. But, after all, a grand j-ury's report is.only the first step in the program of punishment that ought to be meted out to the guilty-in,the .Hei'rin massaci-e. Satisfactory first steps have been taken before arid never followed up. Whether the : prosecutors will push tliese indictments as they should be j pushed, and whether the courts will permit the stiff defense, that adtenittedly willbe made, to warp the straight edge of jus- ^ tice,'or to, weaken the public demand for retribution through j^^vicus and numerous delays, remains to be seeri. 'S' What, in your'opinion, ^yas the part played by the irijunc- ition in the settleihejpt of the railroad shopmeh^s strike? the train as I drew up my car to the station platform. I had just had time to make it after my telephone message,to Diclcy, and I looked nervously over Biy shoulder as I stopped my car to. see if the officious village poiiooman was in stght, for I knew that I had gone well over the speed limit allowed motor vehicles in the village streets. It was evidently my lucky day, however, .and .1 sprang to the platform, hastening to take one of the packages from Lillian. I knew that she must be warm, dusty .ind tired, but I could have deduced not one of the three from her appearance. She was as placid, as fresh-looking, as if slie had just stepped from her bedroom door after completing heri toilet, for the day. "I'd like to see you fighting a fire somo day." I said^ bit viciously as we tunied tow.ird the car. " "But I suppose you'd emerge as unruffled and peaceful as a summer morniijgT" "Rave on, sweet child," she retorted, "if It amuses you. But, really, I'd, get a ne-w line if I were you. It seems to me I've- heard that comment upon my supposed calmness under stress nt least .four hundred and ninfety-.nine times. YpiX never saw me. trying to sew. did yoii? I'm more ifrazzled when i get through trying to mend something than most women are over a wedding or a death. I can run a sewing machine, and that lets me out." I changed the subject abruptly, for the mention of the sewing machine had brought to niy mind an audacious little ^laii. .Perhaps I could absolutely avoid ally explajiatibii to JDicky of the wreckage the mar.-iiid- ers had caiised in the contents of my keepsake trunk. Madge's J'ian. . "I need Hot ask yoii if you were successful in your quest this .morn-, ing," I said with a ftod toward the :bundles .as we climbed Into the car. • "I .•;was very'lucky,'' LiUfan ;nn- B \»«red, as .usual giving .to: tlie, streiv- itoiis effort she had rriade an air of doing nothing. "I do hope Her Fluffiness will approved" "She is in a very approving mood this morain.g," .1 laughed. "She arose with what Dicky cnlls a 'left over grouch,' but ^he was siiniiy as a jiine morning when I last saw her. Tell me, are there anyjthings in that bundle we could take over.; toy our house, to sew? My sewing machine is still there, and If you'll attend to that end of the work I'll talif the rest. If I have a specialty it is hemming, and I suppose that will form the bulk of the work." "Why?" Lillian turned an attentive face toward me. I knew from her tone that she guessed I had some special redson for the request. "Because Dicky is' coming, out on the 4 o'clock train to look over the damage, and I thought—" "Of course!" she Interrupted. "We must get that.stuff of yours back in the trunk before he comes. The rest of the-house doesn't matter, wonder if Her Fluffiness—never mind, we'll be able to put her off the track." 'You mean you will," I said sauc- The Days of Real Sport "We'll let her inspect these fripperies first," Lillian returned. "Have you people had lunch ?" "Vou know Her Fluffiness," I laughed. "She'll talk about letting you take 'a piece,' a-nd .things . like that, but she really has quite an elaborate little meal waiting" for our return from the etation.'-' A Sbar^ Question. 'I ought to censure her;'-but my tummy won't let mc," Lillian.- commented. "I'm" simply.starved. .And really, ^ere isn't such a mbuiilain of wt)rk to do on thiese,' draperies. Some of them I was fortunate enough to get ready hemmed. With four of us' working we'll be able to get everything done, including the clearing up of tliat Wreckage in your room." "If only .Mrs. Du.rkee will think so,'.' I elghed merttally, but rejoiced that Lillian was there to manage Her Fluffiness. As usual, my belief in my friend's adroitness was justified, for when we had loolfed at and had admired the really exquisite things Lillian had secured—all in the shades of rose which, we knew, that the dainty bride loved^and.had digcussed the luncheon Mrs. .Durkae. had prepared,, Lillian began her campaign by .saying: coa,xfngly: "You're.going to let every one of us help with the dishes, aren't you? I'll promise not to break a single one, and we'll be through in no time." '•I suppose I'd better," Her Fluffiness returned, and we aU fairly flew iat the task,' dispatched it In record-' breaking time,.jarid repaired''to Le­ ila', when everything was at last Ih'order, pleasantly keyed iip for the task of making a rose-colored geitlng for the dainty bride whose home-coming we were to celebrate in-the'evening. "Let's, see if they fit, first," LiT- lidn said. ""Then while we'je doing -it, who will .measure the Jiems .aiid' put together, the pieces that niust be done on the sewing machines?" ."Do measure the hems, Madge," Her Fluffiness entreated, "and I'll sort out these pieces for the machines." For' the next few minutes we all Worked silently, steadily, and- when everything^as In erderly.pllea, Lillian spoke, a bit'sharply: .
