It is doubtful if the death of any other American qf today would liave carried to so many hearts, old and young, in all this brpad land the twinge of personal sorrow such as has followed the passing o£ James Whiteomb, Riley. the Iloosier Poet, whose gentle soul took its flight at his Lockerbie street home in Ipdianapolis Saturday night. High and low, rich and poor everywhere will mourn his passing as that of a very dear friend. They may not have enjoyed a personal acquaintance with the poet. They may never even have seen him, and yet Ijhey kne,w him intimately through the simple, homely verse and the melodious song which he played with master hand upon the human heartstrings. The witchery of his muse and the melody of his lyrics held their powerful appeal to young and to old alike, and yet it is American childhood which is most deeply bereft in James Whitcornb Kiley'rf death, There is not a schoolroom in all this broad land, and scarcely a hope where children are that does not know and has not felt the inspiration and the charm of Eiley's rhymes of childhood. He knew children as few men know them--knew them an loved them with a passionate depth that was returned in kind with q. wealth of devotion that constitutes a striking characteristic in the life of this extraor- .JJinayUy gifted son of the Hoosier state who came to be essentially the poet of the people. Wealth of tribute will come from far and near to lovingly bedeck the bier of the Hoosier poet as his form shall be laid to rest amid the scene's of his boyhood days. Eulogy and tears alike will voice a sorrow well-nigh universal, and human hearts will pour from their depths the expression of love and honor to the memory of this gentle, kindly soul. Yet try as it may, humanity will never be able to repay the debt it owes to the Hoosier Poet. Eiley's legacy to the America p£ both this and future ages is greater and of infinitely more value to humanity than the material wealth of a Croesus. Indiana suffragists have jut made a trip to Rushville, the home of James E. Watson, to hold upon his very doorstep a meeting for the advancement of the cause of votes for women. The precise atti- ' tude of Mr. Watson toward the enterprise is not disclosed in the press dispatches. The people of Indiana are waiting in breathless expectancy to discover whether or not Mr. Watson will be able to prove himself diplomatically agile enough to duplicate the recent feat of Mr. Hughes. The latter, it will be recalled, received one delegation of suffragists and a similar contingent of antis on the same day and was able to s,eud each away confidently believing the nominee was "With 'em." Objection to the bonding provision of the proposed jitney BUS regulation on the ground that it might make the business unprofitable for those not regularly in the business, but who jump into it as a "side line" during odd hours, still fails to supply any justification for neglect to guarantee so far as possible, the safety of those who ride the Jttneys and those who walk. There should be no mistake as to the relative importance of the interests involved in this question. Con- fop the public must come firat. Sketches from Life ,\ J\ By Temple 11 GO UP Tribute FORGETTING HOW TO THINK. (Wyoming Tribune, Chejenne.) A college professor made the remark to one of his classes in the summer school at Ohio State university the other day that he notices a marked deterioration in the mental capacity of young people of college-student age since he first began to come in contact with them some twenty-five years ago He said they seem unable to concentrate their minds as thev used to. Wihat they seem to learn now, he said, they acquire parrot-like In short, they do not think, says an exchange. We asked a high school teacher of long and successful experience if this is true. She said it undoubtedly is. Both she and the college piofessoi attribute the uncompromising status of boys and girls to too much sctteiing of interest. There are too manv different things for them to do, their attention is constantly being dlveited from one thing to another and the result is that tney cannot fix their minds on anything and consequently do nothing veil Not only do they have a wide dl- erslty of amusements, but the school cuiriculum itself is ghen over In arge measure to a very wide variety of so-called studies which by the far- hest stretch of the Imagination cannot be considered vital or fundamental. A return to simpler courses in school and to simpler living outside is needed, n the view of our college professor and our high school teacher. Mr. Chafin anc) a number of other old-time regulars in the prohibition national convention blocked the movement to make Mr. Hanly's nomination unanimous, even after the Indiana man had secured a big majority of the votes on the first ballot. Can it be possible Mr. Chafin and his friends have it in mind to do a bit of insurging against the new aspirations of the former Indiana governor? New York progressives are reported to be threatening to go to court if need be to prevent the placing of Mr. Hughes' name on their state ballot this year. The progressive party may be dead, disintegrated, blown up and evaporated as some of its enemies are asserting, but for a genteel sort of corpse it appears to be making consid erable noise in one part of the country and another.
