If you use the Indirect method, it'lsn't so easy to rail forth a retort since you haven't on the surface given any cause for offense. THE PRESIDENT'S PAY. The election of a president of :bo United Slates by the many million stockholders of tbo blg- gost business In tbo world, Is done by most of Us without any thought as to the compensation we Intend io give the man whom we CIIOOBO. And while It Is true that some professions, notably baseball anil moving pictures, pay higher salnrles to their stars, It Is fair to say that the United States is not to be charged with being parsimonious In Us allowance for its chief exe- OUtlTtV * . * Ml «Yerj1>ody knows, Mr. Cool- idg» will receive as president, f 76,000 a year salary, and ho draws his pay semi-monthly. 1 Congress has also recognized from the beginning that thore are certain expenses which the occupant of the executive mansion most meet which nro entirely on account of his office una not for nil personal satisfaction. Bo Congress adds to the salary an allowance of $26,000 tt year for traveling expenses, to be drawn as needed and not to bji drawn If not tused. This allowance was first made a few years ago to take the place of tbo custom of transportation companies and hotels furnishing nccommodntiouB for tbo president without charge. It was evident that such a practice was unfair to both parties, putting the president under some obligation and perhaps forcing tha entertaining host to do something which ho had no desire to do. From what W9 know of President Coolldgo It If probable that the government •WJH save part of this money, as the President does not travel far from his office and his Job. •Tben the government furnishes th* president with n house and all Its equipment and the expense of maintenance. Tlio residence Is the White House and the expenses an taken care of In the appropriation bill. X considerable part of this expense Is born by other department*, as flowers nnd music nnd »U such trimmings are supplied to the executive hy other tranches of the government. The government also furnishes President Coolldge with un automobile,, perhaps sercrnl. The White House Is equipped with an art gallery, a library nod other Inoldentals which are necessary In •nob a residence but which no lu- Wh'-n our gtiveruiiienl was organized In KSli the (juc-slion of salary for the president was considered with considerable care, (ir-nrge \Vashinj:lrin, fan firtft. president, who was a wealthy man and could affnnl the expense, said I hot ho was willing to serve without compensation. Hut it. was pointed out by the commilteo of Congress that such a precedent would be a mistake. It would establish a rule which would be followed by succeeding presidents and would deliar anyone from that office who was not rich enough to"} work for nothing. Washington saw the point anil withdrew bis suggestion. Congress lixed the salary at. $2r>,000 a year. A good many years later the wages were raised lo $50,000, and in recent years to the present figure of ?75,000. There has never been a strike for higher wages among tboso who have held this great office. As a matter of fact, the present $75,000 is no mora than equivalent in purchasing power to tbo first amount of $25,000. * , * None of our presidents have been what might he called wealthy men. In recent years Roosevelt was doubtless the best oft of any of the bunch but his estate would not have mado him rank as a rich man either in Washington or New York. It was not at all to the discredit of President McKinley that some of his friends chipped in to raise a sum of money tor him hecause his entire time anil lalent had been given to the service of the country and he bad no opportunity to accumulate a private fortune. Just so it was with Clnveland tint! Taft and Wilson. Harding was a country editor and Coolldge might be described as a country lawyer. Neither of them had sufficient' private means to keep tip an establishment of bis own in Washington. And while Coolldge will probably sava a little money out of hla salary as president, for be makes It a rule to save out of any salary he may receive, it will be difficult even for hie New Kngland economy to make much of a financial gain during his stay In the White House. No other country In our class compares with the United States iu paying such a small salary, and it Is fair to say that no other country gets so much for Us ON SECOND THOUGHT Hy Jay K. House, in the Philadelphia Public Ledger. Myself by Mc—The Opolis Daily Sun Carter Wild got me into 11. 1 was at. homo "resting" aud waiting for something to turn up:. I had no money and no credit. All I had was a wardrobo which I bad painstakingly built up during the period of prosperity tlie year before. I could have been mistaken for tho advance agent of a minstrel show iu any town. Frequently I was so mistaken; peoylo were always asking me when tlio troupe would bo along. 1 loafed nround the Clarion office, and 1 have Kiure suspected Carter got tired of having mo under his feet. In my own defense I will say it wa s tlio only place in Grigsby City where an intelligent, clever 1 young man could loaf satisfactorily. I never did care for the livery stable—tho crowd around tho livery stable so frequently offended my sense of the sartorial niceties. To this day I can't stand a man who goes around In his un- dersliirt. Anyhow, Carter one day said to me: "Why don't you start a daily paper in Opolis? They need a live, snappy paper in Opolis and they'll support one." Opolis was in a had way for newspapers at that time. There it was a thriving, growing city of six or seven thousand peoplu and onl.v on« daily and two weeklies. It certainly needed another. I could see the need of Opolis as clearly as any one, but there were difficulties, "I have no money and no credit," 1 said to Carter, "how am I going to start a newspaper?" "Don't let that worry you," he replied; "I'll liuance It. All you need is enough' money to make a payment on your outfit. I'll put in $100. You con make your payment out of that. If tho paper makeB good, I'll lake a fourth Interest In it as my share. If it doesn't make good, nobody loses much." Ia those days, and given $100, anything looked plausible to mo, and Carter sold me the idea without raising his voice. Meanwhile, another Richmond had appeared In the field. Richmond's other name was Len Barber . He was a printer on the Grlcaby City Weekly Vine. [He wanted to start a paper In money In the compensation It j Opolis, too. Fearful that ho might gives for the service of Its chief exocutive. W. Y. MORGAN. •t. * * * <}• *!• <!' '!> * * <j. * <!> >?• DISCOMPLIMENT1NG BY PROXY By Huth Cameron. Some weeks ago 1 wrote ahout complimenting by proxy. That Is, complimenting people by praising someone of the general type of the person you are talking with, or expressing your admiration for qualities you know he or she possesses, without making the compliment specltlo. But complimenting Is not the only thing one can do by proxy, as a great many people Beem to have reallied without my aid. Yon can also dlBcompllment by proxy. For Instance, you make considerable effort to take a friend who hasn't a machine of her own out "> drive. When yon got her home she expresses her pleasure In that flat hollow tone which is so much more truthful than her words. And then with sudden warmth iu her voice,, sho says: "Did you ever drive with Mrs. Collins?" You say that >'«u have never bad that pleasure. Aud then line says enthusiastically: "Sho certainly is tbo smoothest driver 1 ever saw. I simply love to drive with her. You know she's driven ever since cars came iu. It really is wonderful tna way she handles tbo car, you never feel the slightest jar." • Whereupon, you and your little flivver, without a direct word, feel properly put in your place. have a new coat and are showing it to your neighbor at iter urgent request. You suspect by her lace that she Isn't really impressed, though she says that It's "awfully becoming,' 'that "they -say fitch wears wonderfully," and (lint's "such a pretty lining." And a ino- iniml hiier your suspicions are confirmed when she pays: "Have you seen (iertrude's new coat? My dear, it, is the smartest thing! She cor- lainlj' has got _ tho best tame. 'Though, of course, she spends an awful lot on her clothes, too. 1 wonder whoro they got all that money." , One cabnot, of course, over crlti- cizo other people's children directly, but ono can use the Indirect method. One cannot say: "Those children of yours are a perfect nuisance to everyone because you never havo taught ibem to mlinl." do so., v.e considered the proposition to take him in with us and finally decided to do it. Barber had no money, eltbor, but he know a couple of cigarmnkers in Opolis, and we figured his personal acquaintance in the town might give bis paper the edge over ono conducted by a stranger. We broached the matter to Leu and he wns agreeable. So I took Carter's 5100 and went to Kansas City to shop around far an outfit. There I bought a press, making an Initial payment of $50 on it." I rooted around and the next day found a printing outfit In storage In a small town contiguous to Kansas City aud leased It from its owner. Almost from the beginning 1 realized wo had underestimated lbo financial outlay necessary to the starting of a dally newspaper. When I reached Opolis, preparatory to setting up shop, I bail $1 wilh which to meet freight charges on material and tho additional cost of fitting tip a newspaper office. I know now it wasn't enough. I wua in doubt about it even then. Nevertheless, I rented quarters, got the stuff out of tho freight office, fitted up tho shop and tho Opolis Daily Sun ramo duly into being without delay. 1 do not now recall bow I did it. I urn perfectly sure I couldn't do It again, hut I did It once. If I do say It, the Sun was a pretty good paper. 1 ought to know, for 1 wrote virtually every lino of it myself. Barber's acquaintance with, the two cigar- makers didn't seem to do tho paper much good. At the end of a monlh Carter and I froze him out. 1 got a fairly good staff together which neither expected wages nor drew them. All they wanted to do was work wit i mo and I accommodated them. Ono reason I am now a si and pn Iter in that we ran the Sun on the communal plan. On Saturday night wo divided whatever was in tho till, share and aharo alike, sit was the only way anybody could bo sure of anythlnj. Sometimes tho dividends ran as high as $1.75 apiece, but that was our best week. Usually they were less. That ono little thing surfeited me with Communism and I have been a standpatter ever Rlnce. But try as I would, 1 couldn't keep out of the way of the overhead. As winter strengthened and tiien ;waued my position became more and more preenrious. Tho paper aud plate bouses, the hotels and restaurants bad other purveyors of necessary supplies wouldn't stand for tho communal plan. They wnntetl tbelr money, and you should have, seen them get it, 1 have always thought 1 could have done better work In Opolis had circumstances been more propitious. It isn't going to do an editorial on the prosperity of the Nation any good if tbo writer thereof Is interrupted in the middle of It by the presentation of a bill for $1.15 which he Is unable to pay. And while the staff did not draw wages, it did have to be fed and housed, which was a considerable problem after the various botelB and restaurants had plainly indicated to me that my custom was not desired. 1 bridged the difficulty for a little while by renting a couple of furnished rooms, where we all slept aud cooked and ate such food as wo could lay bands on. We mado a rather sketchy breakfast one morning on coffee brewed from the grounds of a previous meal. Then we addressed ourselves to the day's tasks. Along about 10 o'clock I wns Interrupted iu the middle of my. editorial leader . It was tho gentleman of tha rooming bouse. Ho advised me that he had locked up our rooms and that, they would not he opened again until the rent was paid, A few minutes later the express office notified me that >tha shipment of paper, eome of which was desperately needed for the day's Issue, was lying there C. O. D. $14.So. The end bad come. "Keep moving, hoys," I said to tho lads about mo; "I'm going out to sell tbo Sun." On the corner I met Houston Carr. He had beeu harrying me for a Job as reporter and broached the subject again. "I'll sell you tho paper," I said. "But 1 haven 't any money," be said. "You don't need much," I replied. "Give me $10 and let me use the railroad transportation a couple of weeks and you may have the works." "I 'll see If I can get it from mother," he said, and was away He was back in fifteen minutes with a nice, clean $10 bill. 1 took the staff to a convenient lunch counter, gave tbo members a good meal and caught the 2 o'clock train out of town.

On a fur coat, some silk stockings and a newly acquired knowledge of cosmetics, eho stakes her hopes lor life. Sabelia, who Is 45, ia the only woman ever sentenced to death in Illinois. Site speut IS months in a "condemned row" cell in the cou- ty jail here. This ntler a Jury found her guilty in thn murder of her first husband, Frank Nllti, Those were months of terror for Sabelia. Her hair turned gray wliilo she waited for them to kill her. She would rise on her cot at night nnd Bhriek as the tramp, tramp of tho death watch souuded through the corridor. When within a few days of the scaffold, the Supreme Court re- ivewed her case und ordered a new trial. 1 Sabells was overjoyed. It was good to live a little longer. Sho rushed home to her five children. Site bus been free on bond ever since—working, praying, waiting. So has her second husband, Poter Crudolle. who was given death along with her. He is a mere youth tn his twenties and worked as a laborer on Hubella's farm before ho married her. "We no kill him," says Sabelia. "Me no pretty when tried. Jury say mo guilty. Jury no Jike homely woman," "Hut now me get new trial. Me have fur coat—silk stockings. Jury no say me guilty this time, Pretty women always not gvtllty. Mo no guilty. My husband no guilty." Thus, iu her primitive sort of SAHELLA N1TTI CRUDELLH way, Sabelia visions life at least and i'reedom, too, on her second deal with Fate. Since her release from tho death house Sabolla has gone back to farming. Hor bands aro calloused from digging In the ground and her face is burned by the bent of many days in the fields. But Sabelia does not care. The effort earned the few pennies necessary to refurnish her wardrobe. It provided, too, some powder and a bit of rouge. At her now trial .Sabelia plans to make a bit. For Sabelia says: "Pretty woman not guilty." ANNOUNCING THE OPENING of our NEW HOME Monday i iVov. 17 We cordially invite you to visit us on Monday, November 17, and inspect our new banking quarters.
