H ERE are a few reciprocity President Taft for the benefit of Chicago - hearers. - ; ' - The interests are trying to block the reciprocity agreement with Canada witi hostile amendments; the people approve the agreement "The American farmer will suffer no injury whatever. 'On the contrary, he will be benefited by it. - j ' .. . :.-'"-' ' ; ; :: ' "Canada will have 30.000.000 people some day and it would be a sh-rt-sighted policy that would fail to provide uians to capture this trade. - , "Six months from the time the agreement la " ratified there " will be no opposition, what- ever, from any quarter, for the administration f. will prove Its own worth. v "Canada cannot and does not raise more than . one-sixth of one per cent, of the crop of the United States. The United States exports Into Canada 15 times as much meat and dairy products as Canada Imports Into the United States. "The world price of wheat, barley, rye and oats is fixed abroad, where the surplus of the producing' countries Is disposed of and is little affected , by the place from which that supply is derived. . "The reciprocity agreement should pass the sea- - ate, and-1 believe it will pass." On-the same day that the president was making this speech, the Chicago Tribune announced ;the result of Another of its mail votes on public questions for which it has won a reputation. Its 'results showed that more than three-quarters . of .the editors of the middle western states are in !favor of reciprocity, without reference to party .ties, and are supporting it editorially. Oppon-ents of the treaty will seek to discredit the result by dwelling upon the interest which the publisher has in the price of print paper, but a frac-, tionaIdifference in the price of white paper is of insignificant value to the editor compared with the good will of his readers. That more than .three-fourths of the editors of the middle west are in favor of tcciprocity is ground for contradicting the claim that the farmers are against it, for the majority of editors are largely dependent upon farmer support and sympathy. In such -apoil as the one mentioned, the vote of thefedi : tor of a, country weekly; with 800 circulation, iweighed as ieavily as the vote of a city :i editor whose readers numbered hundreds of thousands and the rural newspapers far outnumber the metropolitan sheets many times over either actually or in proportion to the number of readers "whom they represent- Trcth is beginning to prevail with regard to the source of fanner opposition to reciprocity. The senators who now seem in a fair way' to block the treaty are the same stand-pat division j which has done the bidding of the trusts with respect to other manifestations of the tariff issue. It was shown before a senatorial committee that the law firm which has been responsible for most .of the tracts against reciprocity and mojst of the SEASON OF BOAT ROCKER HERE AGAIN Only the Novice Will Attempt Daring and Reckless Feats in the Water. -. Now that the season In which the fool rocks the boat has arrived, it is very likely that .the number -of drownings will increase, until the -total number of llTea claimed by the rirers andjakes of the country will be appalling as usual. It la an old, old story and repeated warnings seem to hare little or no effect on those persons who fre-Quent the water, but who appreciate too little what It threatens. It is the botIc and incompetent who rocis the boat, and who daringly at-. tempts feats In the water at which the seasoned swimmer would balk. Number la increasing craf Each year the cumber of persons who turn to boating; and bathing as - summer amusement grows larger. ..Every, river." lake and pond la utilin- ed by these near-amphibians. Swim-, mers multiply and pleasure crafts fairly cover the turf ace of the water and, as Is to be expected, the toll of life' exacted by the water '; grows in proportion. The man who fm best acquainted with the water has the greatest feeling of respect and dread of Its power. V" The sturdy swimmer .who fossesset knowledge of the water's treachery is never, guilty of rocking the boat or of carelessly changing Beats In a cranky craft. LEFT TO THE NOVICE. This particular form of . stupid recklessness is left to the novice whose knowledge of boata amounts to nothing and who, more than likely, has never learned to swim. As there is no-way by which these novices can be kept from going np-1 on the, water. It l. suggested that men and. women refuse to trust tbeinselre itb other than expeM-en"f boatmen. . ind that girls decline to rntnre out with men and rouths who r not fcwd swimmers.

Quen-tln Roosevelt, 13-year-old son of Theodore Roosevelt, has , been awarded a prize at the 'Groton school for being the second smartest scholar in his class. "Ugh," said the lad today, in talking of his new honor, "I suppose I was glad to win that second prize, all right, but believe me, I would rather be up In foot ball and base ball. 1 don't, study bard; don't believe tn it." .

Instead of copyrighted and, gosh! it took! by ' 1 " ' to defeat it was not deriving its the. farmers, but was in the pay of corporations. These corporations appeared hostile to reciprocity, but they have given money ungrudgingly in an effort to arouse the opposition of the farmer. The same lumber trust which put Lorimer across is most active against reciprocity. OVER SECTARIAN LINES. ffQlOME days ago a Jewish rabbi spoke from O a 'Methodist pulpit in Washington," says the Ohio State5 Journal, "and last" Sunday a Methodist preacher occupied a Unitarian pulpit. That is crossing sectarian lines, with a perfect abandon. It ignores the ancient idea that religion 1 expressed in a creed, and takes Christ's broad view that humanity is the concern of religion and the value of a doctrine is the measure of the good it does to men and women." , And why not? One of 'the advantages of church' union and church co-operation would be a . freer interchange of pastors in pulpits. It is a strain even upon the best preachers to . bring a fresh message to their people fifty or 100 times in a year. Inevitably any congregation karns a certain pastor's cast of thought so thoroughly that they can almost anticipate his utterances on any subject. It would, be an interesting experiment, so . far as church attendance ' is ; concerned, to have all the pastors in a, city assigned in rotation to the vari would, counteract the tendency of 1 orate in their church attendance a practice whicu deprives them of the priviledge of active co-operation in any particular church . -O ' ' ' The Toledo Blade editor is accused, by a contemporary, of having adopted a different editori result of Billy Sunday's revival subtle change is in the "direction of slang is not stated.

The senate was the only branch of congress to meet today. Senator Pomerene was expected to call up his , resolution directing criminal proceedings against the officers and directors of the Standard Oil company and the American Tobacco company and to urge their prosecution under the recent supreme court decisions. The finance committee continued Its hearing on Canadian reciprocity. These hearings will close today or tomorrow. The report of the committee may be formulated "Wednesday and presented to the senate the following day. Activity at the house end of the capltol was confined to various committees.

WANDERS ABOUT THE CTTT. ; Then last Wednesday the man had a little turn in his luck. He had wandered up and down Akron streets until It seemed he must- give up from exhaustion alone. There had been little help , of any kind : bestowed, on him, and he was ready to give up the fight, ready for anything but to go on. It seemed so useless, somehow. He bad arrived in Akron from New York city Sunday afternoon, and had worked a few hours since coming. T2en he was paid oft. They did not want a man who trembled at the sight of cocoalne, and they were not anxious for the services of one who had td pass by a saloon on the oppoalte side of the street.

It made sn impression on him, and he had towed aa he sat there listening to the old lady and her pitiful tal, "that he would never touch another drop, of liquor, ner another ounce of dope. A failure to see the point of the Joko perpetrated at the meeting of tbe school board Wednesday by a reporter for "our esteemed contemporary," the Akron Times, caused the Joko to be turned on him. Ir teillnr of the mistakes made by the other papers he mads one himself which waa the 1 result of startling Ignorance.
