The Bond Program from Little Hock Uwl ii has been reached in the fight over Govoi-nor Bailey's liigliway bond refundiiiB program is good news. After all the important thing is Unit the slate take advantage ot the opportunity to rewrite its big road debt on more favorable terms. How and by whom the job is acco'mplished nrc secondary matters. .As things stand it appears that the refunding program will be authorized virtually in the form it was lirst submitted by Governor Bailey. Such changes and restrictions as are in prospect eflect the essence of the plan not at all and in fact, according to the governor, .simply make mandatory a course of procedure which he intended to follow anyway. Apparently they will serve the additional purpose of providing a face-saving : "oiit'' for certain gentlemen at the capital who permitted themselves''to become 'involved in what seems to have been tan entirely unnecessary iiuarrel with the governor over the matter. 'The political mind will probably always be beyond the untler.stnnding of those accustomed to the more' direct , mental processes which ordinarily are used in the transaction of human affairs in other spheres. If a private corporation found that its improved financial condition or other circumstances pel milled it to rewrite ."its . debt on more,favorable terms-it would go ahead and do it as "a mi'.Uer (if course/and none of its officers would 'Wink of claiming any particular credit for following so logical a course. But when the state is confronted with a similar opportunity H appears that nothing can be done until arrangements are made for a proper allocation of all the political' capital that can be, madu out of the transaction. So long as thai has to be ,the case, •we see no reason why in the present instance, the governor should not cut the major portion of the cake. After all he took the initiative in the matter and if the program can be put. through any resulting political credit properly belongs to him. Tlie Chinese /Pay For ways that are dark, and tricks that arc vain, the Chinese are reported to be peculiar. J?ul there docs seem to be .some method to their peculiarities. On their New Year's holidays, according to a news item, Chinese creditors picketed public bath houses throughout old Cathay. Tn the steaming baths inside, debtors huddled miserably, faced with a soaking of several days before the old year ended. Chinese tradition, it seems, demands settlement 'of all accounts before the end of the old year, and bath houses are the lime-honored refuge for would-be welshers. Many Americans have debtors who blithely and brazenly postpone paying off, Wouldn't it be swell if these pests, like those of China, could be compelled to undergo the ordeal of a long broiling every year end? (I. Penally of Greed A news story from a Michigan paper provides another bit of evidence of human folly. Five men had good jobs in a county oli'ice. A slick-tongticd young man came along and told them that, for $50 from each, lie could gct them better jobs with the state. They immediately (jtiit (heir jobs, put up their $250, and waited. And waited. The glib job salesman vanished, leaving them minus the money and their jobs. These unfortunate men, and.,thou- sands''of other people who have been viclimiml by swindlers, would have done well to remember and heed the moral of a lale written by a sage of long ago. The parable told of a dog which, with a big, juicy bone in his mouth, Svas,crossing a bridge, and noticed his "reflection in the water. Seeing this" . flther (log with what appeared a bigger bone, he opened his month to seize -it, and dropped his own in the water. Aihcrlcnii men are marvelous, the best, look- i ing. nv)il the .nicest I've seen anywhere. -,-Sfl'hiiiui Benitclairc, French actress,.... -..•.-,...

I knew that if these two once got together the chances were. that they would arrange an amalgamation. That would have put an end to their competition and my government would have had to accept a much lesser price ia consequence. It was my business, therefore, io try and arrange a deal with one ol these two gentlemen before they met. John McAdam, alter Avhom ''mi'" roads were named, was born in Scotland, but moved to America nt the a^c of 14. Liter, he returned to Scotland, and became interested in road construction.

K.: Deny it n you like, but it's the truth and we can prove it. In consequence H becomes quite plain now that you heel tlw strongest possible motives lc~ getting rid of Blanc.
