A King's Love Affair An jndivJdual \v)io, by accident of Ijirtlj, is king of England) desires to juxarjry an individual whp,,bj r uccidcul of bjrtli, is an American and a "com- srnone.r/' and that, it appears, besides Jjeing a JniflUer cjt worlrt interest, threatens to upset the constitutional .system of a presumably enlightened nation and to disrupt the greatest empire the world has ever seeiii It is' an' absurd situation, j'cllect- ing "survival in the British mind of ;i medieval concept of kingship. Edward VIIL, is a man, fundamentally not much different from ' millions of others. To the question why his love affair should be a matter of such -tremendous consequence there is no sane answer except that it shouldn't be. But if, common sense - to the contrary, it is, the British people might ask themselves 'why they risk such a threat to governmental stability and imperial unity. • ' If it is really true that an empire can be endangered by so natural a thing as the falling in Jove of a king, - .wouldn't it be safer to eliminate that risk by dispensing with the institution of kingship, which after all is rather an ornament than an essential part of the national and imperial structure. Safety Rules ..;',-The Arkansas State Highway, Commission has issued a leaflet 'contaiii- ^injfJSG rules for safe driving v 'cohchicl- 1 ';~hi({ with 'the adniojiitioii, "Obey these r'ules of safe driving and you will .protect yourself and others." The hijes are all good and one of these" days we shall print them, in the hope that readers ot the Courier News will study them and profit hy them. In the meantime, hpwevor, and for the benefit of those who will not take ~ the time to read and digest 36 rules, we should like to givo emphasis to a line taken from the cover of the commission's leaflet: "Give Your Whole Attention to the Job of Driving." There, in nine wojrds, is about !)0 ' per cejjt of the secret of highway safety. The individual who is mentally , and r)hyjsically competent to drive, whose car is in good mechanical coii- ditipn, and who keeps his 'mind on his job while at the wheel, is not going to meet .disaster—unless, of course, OUT OUR WAY some fool comes along who has Jeft his mind somewhere else, a Symbol Falls in Love Apparently, the British Constitution, for all its marvelous and metaphysical subtleties, contains pnc serious defect. In making the monarchy a symbol. It was obliged to retain the monarch, who Is a mm. And there Is no provision as to what happens .when n symbol falls In love. I.n .modern constitutional monarchies, the symbols have jicvcr done so, or have dono so-only according Io lll e rules as established by jaw and precedent. The possibility limt, one might do otherwise lias apjxirently been overlooked by constitutional theory; yet, as cvcry- . one Knows, H Is a very obvious human possi- Jjlljty, ami one likely to produce incalculable effects iViion human behavior. —New York Hera Id-Tribune. Missouri IViulesta Down at ^Kcelsior . Springs, McX, ! they've been! history's first Mulpstn. A- Mulcsla is n Jcitlysil dedicatee! to the glorification of Hie American mule. We can think of no animal less in need of being glorified, or less likely to appreciate human efforts In that direction. lieu);, as Romp sage has said, without pride of ances- tory or hope of posterity, the mule displays a singular indifference to public opinion. Kind words and language hot enough to fry asbestos, alike, leave the average mule cnlm and un- rnoved. What Missouri really Is glorifying is itself, ns the ilatc which claims to produce more and better mules than any other. And that's till right. -.Missouri is plciised, and there's 'absolutely. no danger Unit the mules will get pulled •iip'-vllli false pride. — Pittsburgh Press. Unanimity?. There is no legal reason why the electors of president and vice-president, chosen by the voters of Maine ami Vermont on Nov. 3 should not; cast their ballots for Resident Roosevelt, although they attained their prcs- . cut'distinction by running on -tickets dedicated to, Landon. An Oklahoma Idealist urges them to do this mid thus make Die' president's reelection untmtmoiis. Were they to yield to this poet's. suggestion, . Mr. Roosevelt would slinre with Washington a tribute not bestowed on any other candidate for the office ho holds. He would hot 'match Washington's .record, for Washington was .twice elected president umuii,- inously, .: In .the -Era o[ Good Feeling, Monroe came Hour to getting all (he voles cast by electors 1 •iil$20..

Plunmier of New Hampshire, a former .United Stales senator and governor of his slate, who is frequently depicted i,s a sentimentalist \vluv cnst his vole for John Qutucy Adams of Massachusetts so that Washington's record should stand. alone. Mr. Plumiuer was not n sentimentalist. He distrusted Monroe and on that account wo.ulcl not vole for - him. Unless within a few 'months politics in Maine and Vermont has undergone an unsuspected change, the eight electors of president and vice-president chosen iu those states are not sentimentalists, but Plimimcrs.

Tickets Io each show presented were included in the membership privileges of the Stagecraft Guild, aud the Bradford family membership entitled them to two tickets'. Mike, with what he hoped was a good pretense of unselfishness, suggested to Joan ttiat she use their tickets for McDougall and herself She retorted that she wouldn!t dream of depriving him of the pleasure of seeing the play, anc cheerfully took a dollar of. his money to buy a third ticket foi ilieii- guest. McDougall, lelt to his own devices, probably would not li attended, but, having arrived anc resigned himself to his fate, h< had to admit that a workman like job was on view. As an arli^ lie found chief interest in the scenery committee's products, an yet, having expected to bo borec by an amateur production, h found himself almost as interested in the play as if he had been i> a Broadway theater. Backstage, EIS the show got un der way, had rise because of the presence in In - audience of Lloyd Burtis, one o the most successful New Yor producers. His entrance into th auditorium had been discovered a once and reported to the cast n the cuviain was about to rise, an significance of unknown proper tions was added by the fact Hi: he attended in company with Rei Henderson, husband of the play director. It was recalled that Mr. Bui-t was an old friend of the Hcnder sons, and the director's mysterioi statement concerning an impo: tant event on the night of'U show seemed to give great promise. Just what his altendani uld mean to the Guild and the wn, both of which, Mrs. Hen- ; ;rson liad said, would benefit rough the forthcoming surprise, o cast could not fathom, but it >urred them to a finer perform- ice, nevertheless. The first act was concluded ilhout a hitch, aud as sets and >slumes were changed and the' gli school orchestra performed •the satisfaction of admiring arents, Mrs. Henderson, behind le curtain, was deluged with in- liries concerning Burlis and the •omised surprise. But she refused on explanation, nd the second act began -with 10 cast very much on edge. Grimly McDougalf w'a t c h e d larcia Canficld on the stage, wishing he had' hot come to see er.

It was a long in!c:™.i3sicn. The irchestra played four numbers, and the audience was becoming decidedly restless when Mrs! Henderson stepped before the curtain and waited for silence: She had just emerged, she said, 'ronv a conference with Mr. Bur- .is, from whom she had previously exacted a secret promise in connection v/ith tonight's show. The conference had bc?n attended also by Mr. and Mrs.'Frank Osborn, of Bobbs Neck;-and Miss Dorothy Osborn, their daughter and a member of the ,casl. Mr. Burtis's promise, she coulc now announce, had been to offer a Broadway opportunity to the player u'.io gave the finest performance in tonight's show. He had required only two aots to make his choice; the offer 'hie been made to the young laily selected, in the presence of her parents, and accepted. Miss Dorothy. Osborn would have her chance ou Broadway Not,"of 'course, .ps a star, but. stil it would be a chance. There was an actual ovatior; Frank Osborn and'his wife,'hay ing waited bockslage during th announcement, attempted to re turn to their s_eatsxluring thei'up roar, and called "forth an even greater demonstration, jnuch Jo. ihcir embarrassment. And Ihe third act curtain went up, Dorothy-, who was pn the stage' j alene fpr a fevv moments, got ^Vfj'i \ a reception that she was almost in • , tears, .and'her recovery, under the ' circumstances, was evidence pf an : inherent capability .to pbserye tlvat ; hallowed injunction of Jhe Profes- i sipnal actress, "The show .jnust': ' go on." * * * ' ', • ', TJER part in the play was fin- isheci after half a dozen jnin- - ules in the third act, .and she \aft ' t (lie stage to another burst pf ap- ;• plause.
