TAFT IN TlfE GAME. For the first time President Taft ha3 now become a real factor in the framing and passage of the ta-iff bill. He let the first jand second stages of the legislation pass, and, without any attempt at Interference on his part, the Payne bill was framed by the house and the Al-drich bill by the senate. He has let, the schedules so far entirely alone and only in injecting the corporation tax feature into the measure has he allowed himself to be drawn into the game. Now, however, that the bill, or bills, have ientered into the third stage, that of conference between the two branches of congress, the president has evidently begun to take a hand' (and to exert the power of his influence in the way of adjusting and fixing lhe duties. We will not knpw, probably, how far he is going or will go. in this respect, for his way of exerting his influence on congress is not thsit of publishing to the world Ins intentions and program, or even lis desires, and when the bill is finally enacted into law we will not learn just what he has succeeded in accomplishing, or what part of the changes has been due o him. That he was in earnest whenf he promised tariS revision downward we have no douJbt, that he still believes in it, andl that he has now earnestly entered into the effort toi secure, it we also believe. Whether he can se- cfiifcit is another question. That he will not obtain all that he would like to get is probably true,, but that he can and will succeed ;in securing a irodification of the schedules as fix el in both the house and the senate bills, at least in those schedules that are niobt vital to the interests of the people which means the consumers while at the same time conserving the traditional American policy of I!Titei'4ion.' we have the utmost con fidence. If he does not, then the countrv. which is distinctly disap pointed in what has been given them up to th i.4 stage, will expect him to carry out tlie warning! contained in his speech at New Haven. Probate Judge Lytl has done Well in adopting the rule that there I hall be no more marriage licenses Lidden in -out-of-the-way portions of Uie record. The concealment never did serve any good purpose and fre quently proved to be a ba thin The marriage that is not made public has elements of suspicion about It that make neither for the repu tations nor good names of those participating in it, even if there is In fact nothing wrong abmt it. Judge Lytle has done what other judges ought to have done before this. There were only fourteen votes In the house against the submission of the income tax amendment to the legislatures of the different states. But do not think for a moment that that number of votes! registers the actual opposition in the lower house of congress to an income tax. There was many a disgusted gulp as the bitter dose was swallowed. "For the first time in the history of his administration, Mayor Sawyer failed to send a man to the work-hote for striking a man." This from the chief newspaper organ of 3dayor Jawyvr would be a tine thing for campaign consumption, if it were only true. Go look at the records! ! The Hon. William Jennings Bryan. got another line piece! of advertising out of hia letter to President Taft asking for a coxstitutjonal amendment providing for the election of United Mates benator.-, by vote of the people. As (au advertiser, Mr. Bryan is certainly an urtist. I One reform that sem.s to have corae in with the Taft administration is a determination that government . employes shall earn their salaries. As a consequence there are a whole lot of men holding down soft jobs who ar on the anxious seat. One good thing about the raise in automobile tire prices is that this is one Instance w here ti e jxor man does not get it in the neck. Now if the tiremaker would only reap a small part of that 15i pen tent, advance! I Jlm Jeffries now says that he will not fight Ja k Johnsonj on account of his color. Like all pugilistic champions, Jeffries now wints to fight only with fcia mvutii and a type- wriwr. Mr. Ilarrlman la having brought to him post-haste a. lot of his favorite long, black cigars. And, his tronhl ts said to be of the nervousj variety! Wonder why the senators did not make it an even thousand amendments to the house bill instead of the 847 with which It was loaded down. If its name is to be hyphenated, then mafc it the Taft-Payne-Aldrlch bill with the accent on the first syllable. Dr. William Osier has just passed his 60th birthday, and has shut up like a clam on the subject that made him famous. If ever opportunity knocke at any man's door, it has certainly been pounding away at President Taft's. Most men are willing to wait for the 1910 model before buying an aeroplane. Kickers9 Column Address Kicks to Editor "Kickers' Column." If you have a Kick Kominjj, Kick it into the Beacon Journal office, and give it an airing. It will do you good and perhaps do the city good. If you Kan't find anything to Kick about, look about and find something. Kicks Kount these days ' one way or the other. Don't Kuotk, people don't like that, but Kicking is all right, if you have a Kick on th school board, on the city authorities of high, low or medium degree, on the water works or any public utilities corporation, on anything or anybody acting in a public capacity. Kick to the Beacon Journal. Don't do your Kicking over the telephone, but write out your Kick and bring it in or send it into the office. Remember the views expressed are not those of the Beacon Journal when they are somebody else's, and this paper is not responsible for them, but it is willing to be the vehicle of expression. A Kick doesn't necessarily need to be from an individual alone, but may come from a set of persons, people on a street, etc., just so somebody Is responsible for it. "It's not very encouraging to a 'City of Opportunity' when the Cuy ahoga river is made a dumping ground for all kinds of refuse," said a Cuyahoga street citizen Wednesday afternoon. "It is time that some thing were dons there to make that part of town bearable at least. In the hot weather there it is something terrible the way sewage and refuse smells and throws out a sickening odor that makes it unpleasant. if not unbearable. This playing back and forth between the health authorities and city council and now and then getting the state board of health Interested, but all without any results, is getting mighty tiresome, and I for one want something accomplished pretty soon." North Hillers are kicking on the condition of W?st Tallmadee avenue. The hill that leads to Cuyahoga river and canal at Lock 19 is a whole lot worse than passing over any corduroy road, but rather like threading one's way across and over little ravines. There are ruts too big to be designated by such a little word, and the slope of the hill is practically impassable. The principal move toward Improvement so far. residents say, has been to fence the street up, which of course makes it all the nicer for people who wish to pass by that way. A GLUE SWINDLER is working in Akron, selling stick glue which heclalms will mend furniture and most anything else; and stating to people that he is employed by the C. H. Yeager Company. Several people who have found the glue to be of no use whatever have foned, asking us to make it right. We have never had any agent in our employ Belling glue and, of course, we cannot guarantee the glue this agent is selling: he has no connection whatever with the Yeager Company. - THE C. H.

A local publisher and printer has noticed that a Chicago type manufacturing hous has "Type Foundery" printed on all of its letter heads, bill heads and all other (stationery instead of "Type Foundry-" In Detroit when the Olidden tourists left that city a large placard heralded that "Pullman car arraignments? oould be made at a certain time in a certain hotel room Newspaper men who noticed the interloping "17 wondered whether the hand-printing on the card wasn't done by a police reporter or a lawyer, snd they sort of scented a story In the suggestion that the Pullman company wa8! going to be arraigned. "Now, Willie, don't Bit there; move over." ( Oh, mamma, I want to sit at the end." ' ! "No, eir, you can't; move over, I say" i "Oh. mamma, I'll -hold on; I .-want ; to sit here."- i "All right.i then, but don't fall."'

For Caley's department, be it known, is prolific: in newspaper stories covering the idosyncrasies of people as regards numbers and machines. One of the Caley stories says there was a lot of fun in the . registrar s mail a morning or ; so ago. and then the merly trying to .10 something to re-narrative runs as follows: lax her mind. The doctor ha3 with- ! m so j GOOSE LIKE. . Heln My, what a foolish letter! Delia He : must have written It with goose quill. Palsy Is he really o mean?

''CALL nVS HDi s i HER IDEA. i "Oldest Inhabitant" Can Remember Weather That Wa Two applicants for a state automobile tag. A. R. and W. C. Flank of Jeffersonville, wrote that they did not want any more 23s or 13a and asked that a new number be issued ( them. Their old tag wa9 1213 and they stated they were not superstitious, but just "a wee bit leery" of the number. "Well, I'll try to please them." said Caley, as he took up the numbering machine and stamped 19,212, just missing the unwelcome "hoodoo" by one number. Another joke enclosed in the mail was a chauffeur's renewal blanjf that had gotten into the hands of the wrong Charles Mc-Guire of Cincinnati. Mr. McGuire, who Is a commission merchant, wrote back saying enclosed please find blank and information: "I have no auto. "I never had one. "I have no chauffeur. . "I never had one. "I have, no intention of acquiring one. "If somebody were to present me with an auto, I'd sell it Quick."? An Investigation of the returned renewal blank showed that "-th names were all right, but the strest numbers all wrong. Obeying; the doctor's orders to the letter has caused a decided change in the disposition of a well-known girl in East Akron. For a year aird a half she has ben applying her- ' self to her 'studies sn closely that nor to give any thought to it until the next- day. "In fact," said the doctor, "do a friend of the opposite sex. They passed a house en one.ot tne sine streets in the Eat End and in the parlor could be son a- gathering of young people.

OD'V you Tr4lVK';7 the Use? drawn the absurd part of tha prescription and only long walks are permitted. A welIkuown Akron man who is absent minded and who sometimes tak"s a few more drinks than are good for him is telling a story on himself which is being assiduously circulated by his friends. He lives in a certain apartment houso where the half dozen entrances to the various flats are very similar, In fact they all look alike. One night his wife was absent and he remained down town with the boys until midnight. He had no excuses to offer when be got home, so hia mind was burdened with other and less important subjects a8 he walked toward his domicile. From habit he drew his night key frcm his pocket, approached the apartment house and mounted th flight of steps. The flrsc door he came to he anplid the key andthe door responded to his touch after the lock yielded to the key. Unconsciously he shed his coat and hat nd tried to hang them on a hat rack which wasn't there. "I sobered up in lss than a second," he relates. "I struck a match and found I was not. in my own home. There was a dim light in the parlor and I drew aside the por-tiers. On a sofa a young man and a young woman were cooing gently nrd babbling foolishly. They gave me a wild stfre. But I didn't stop to oxpla'n. I fled. "When I entered the hall of 'the flat I removed my shoes from force of habit. Fay, I didn't wait to pick up thoe shoes. I bolted. That fallow would have had a right to shoot, me, and the thought sent a cold chill down my hack. I ran up nnoilier flight of steps and to my own home, and roy neighbors never knew the identity of the intruder. "No, T didn't call for my shoes. And, no! no! I didn't tell my wife."

RIBBOX A quaint novelty for summer wear are the hats fashioned entirely of ribbon, one of which i3 ifictured above. This consisted of a high, broad crown in the accepted mide and a "poke" brim. Tlie foundation is, of course, a wire frame, and upon this is a width of "broad Dresden ribbon, gathered around the base of the crown, and around which is a broad, flat band of ribbon terminating at the back in a flat bow and long ends. The top of the crown is also of gathered ribbon, which is brought to the center under a ribbon-covered button. Around the edge of the crown and concealing the joining of the two widths of ribbon is a wreath of pink roses, also made from ribbon. Tha quaint poke brim is covered by a ruffle of the ribbon. r : SUCCESSFUL AD. Several weeks ago a Kansas editor advertised tha fact that he had lost his umbrella and-requested the finder to keep it.

Stranger What are you doing men an4 sneakers In the Catholic caurca J instructress, as notice. a knife attack not that anything s lacking frames and chairs lacking' springs. i Some women cannot bear to throw away an old paper or magazine. They keep piles of these under bureaus or desks, where they accumulate dust and prevent any systematic cleaning. Other careful souls believe In hoarding old hats, old gowns, old feathers and "small sections of trimmings that match nothing else on earth. "Everything comes back !n style once in every seven years," remarked one of these economical souls, and sha forgot to add that the precious article saved was usually so rotten or sa faded that It was no good by that time.""" j But the most tiresome woman of all is she who accumulates secondhand ideas and clings to them year , in and year out regardless of the march of time and the progress around her. My advice to women is: Don't accumulate anything except money. Use Just what you need and either give or throw away the rest. Save yourself the wear and tear which belongs to responsibility, and needless responsibility at that. The world is hard enough for you as it is without your making it any harder for yourself. standing here on this lonely dock, little man? ! Boyy Waiting fer de tied t' come in. Stranger The tide?
