WOME.V AXn .HTSTICK. During tlie progress of the trial Mrs. Meyer nt Wintered, a corres- pondent noted that the women spec- tators were far more vindictive to- wards tho defendant than were the rueo. They were free to express their conviction as to her guilt and to demand her severe punishment. The men were more sympathetic und reserved In their opinions. This Is merely an example of the traditional RANN-DOM Howard LRann TWIN S 'Twins are a soul-satisfying form of. epidemic which causes envy to spring i up in tho minds of the neighbors and Blc to spring up In the home. consist of two children who look implacability of woman towards her can tell them; lapart, unless thev are branded with) own sex.

It is also looked upon in some quarters c.s the announcement ot Mr. Root's own personal platform. In this speech, which may be ac- curately described as a philippic against the Democratic administra- tion, Mr. Root, tho diplomat, towers above Mr. Root, the politician. So militant it is in tone that one would almost believe the address was writ- ten''by Theodore Roosevelt. In its vigorous and unsparing arraignment of the president's foreign, policy, Mr. Root's pronouncement is worthy of the colonel at his best. He assails Mr. Wilson's vaccinating attitude towards Mexico as having brought disgrace to the American name, as- serting: "For the death and outrage, tho suffering and ruin of our own brethren, the hatred and contempt for our country, and the dishonor of our name in that land, the adminis- tration at Washington shares respon- sibility with the inhuman brutes with whom it made common cause." Passing from this severe indict- ment, Mr. Root Is equally vindictive in his criticism of the administra- tion's handling of the situation grow- ing out of the European war and particularly the submarine question, declaring that "the policy of 'threat- ening words without deeds" has incurred the contempt of the warring powers and that "our diplomacy has lost its authority influence because we have been brave in words and irresolute in action." Like Colonel Roosevelt, Mr. .Root thinks the United States government neglected a solemn duty and "failed to.rise to the demands of a great oc- when it refused to protest against the German invasion of Bel- glum. He believes the administra- tion made a serious and almost fatal mistake when it failed to follow the example of the neutral countries of Europe and provide a strong military force to hack up American rights im- mediately following the outbreak of the -war. If this speech of Mr. Root is really voicing party sentiments, it is evident that the campaign is go- ing to be fought out largely on inter- national questions. Domestic issues will figure, certainly, but not to the extent they have In previous cam- paigns. The question of tariff will be vita! because of after-war com- mercial conditions, but preparedness and. a more vigorous foreign policy be the paramount issues. The Republican party is going to take a militant attitude in this campaign. Both Mr. Root's address and the re- cent ones of Senator Cummins indi- cate that the battle is going to be fought out along these lines. The Republican party under Mr. Tail was even more pacific than the Democrat- ic party under Mr. Wilson. But no pacifist is going to be considered for the Republican nomination this year. The party is going to stand for an adequate measure of preparedness and for a foreign policy that will se- cure a full measure of respect 'or the American flag ail over the world. It will be a policy that will make for peace without the sacrifice of honor or prestige. truth that women arc more severe in Judging their sisters ihan men ure towards members of their own sex. Should the woman jury become es- tablished In judicial procedure, it Is very likely that this fact will be recognized and that women defend- ants will refuse to be tried by a jury of their "peers." They will still prefer to appeal to tho sympathies of a. Jury of men. GUTTING A UXIOX DKi'OT.

It is much easier to raise a pair of twins tliiin a filnglo twin, according to those who have tried both methods. One reason for this is that dual twins learn at an early ago to sine each other to sloop.

An Illinois patriotic organization is interested in tracing the ancestry of Abraham Lincoln. They think they have unearthed evidence that Lin- coln's grandfather was a soldier In the war of Revolution. But the great commoner would have been quick to discourage any such a move.

It must be de- pressing to be the brother of a Siamese twin, who is forever tagging one around and wearing the same colored necktie, and yet these twins earned a great deal of rnony and es- caped matrimony. Twins come to rich and poo'r alike, but It sometimes seems as if the poor had better luck In the draw. arm over the surface of a hardwood floor with cold, protruding feet. When twins grow to duplicate man- hood, they are a real blessing in the homo, as they can wear each other's clothes and go with the same glrli without danger of detection. The parents of twin daughters can buy foulard gowns and silk stockings In carload lots, and thus effect a ma- terial saving.

JUmiiV GOJiS TO MAH'KBT. 13obby Duck was a good llttlo fel- j low most of the time, but once In a i while he did like to .have his own way and did not want to mind his mother, who, of course, being older, was wiser as well. Madam Duck, Bpbby's mother, said one morning: "Bobby, I think you will have to go to market this morning, because I have a pain in my foot and cannot walk to town." Now, Bobby Duck was not glad that his mother had a pain in her. foot, not at all; but he was very glad he could go to market, because he knew he would have to go thru the woods, and Bobby.Duck thought he might have' an adventure. Bobby had heard of Mr. Pox and Old Black Wolf, who lived'in the woods, and he kuow he would bo braver than those who told stories of meeting these fellows and how frightened they had been of Old Black Wolf's Mr. Fox's big mouth. "I would not be thought-Bobby Duck. "I carry a gun and I would make those fellows run from me. I hope I meet one of them; or both would be'more fun." "Now, said his mother, as she gave lilni the market basket, "do not loiter, on. the way and, above all, do not talk-to anyone you cially In the woods. "You never saw Old Black Wolf or Mr. Fox, and they might talk to you so nice and sweet that you would think them the kindest creat- ures in the world, and not knowing what would happen to you." Bobby went to marjcei. and got all the nice things his mother told him to buy, and was on his way home, and still he had not met a single creature, and his gun, which he had brought with him under is jacket, was'still unused. "Good morning, my said someone, very sweetly. Bobby looked in the direction from which the voles came and saw a big black head and smiling face looking at him under a bush some distance "1 want a dark I heard a shopper say to a saleswoman the oth- er day. "Something in blue or "Qh, no, I don't >va.ut black, be- cause that's so unbecoming, nor blue, berauso my spring suit is blue." "Here's a very pretty little brown suit." The newspapers of the state are discussing tho question of Iowa's oldest barber. Des Moines claimed the honor for Jacob Schmltt who has followed the tonsorial art in that city. since 1SG4. It would be interesting to shift the argument to the state's oldest bartender if he hadn't left Jan. 1. The progressive town of Perry has issued, under the auspices of the Bureau of Commerce, an attractive illustrated brochure extolling the ad- vantages of Iowa in general and of Perry in particular. It says "Perry means "pros-Perry-ty." It is a clever and enterprising piece of work. young Philadelphia heiress who married Jean Harold Edward St. Cyr, of a famous French family, is seeking a divorce now that she has found that her husband is plain .Tack Thompson of Waco, Tex. There are so-ne folks who still believe there is BO.' ething in n name. "No. I don't want brown. I've just had a brown suit." The saleswoman twirled the reel around. "Grey or she sug- gested hopefully. "Mercy, said the shopper. "I detest grey, and green makes me look sallow." When I left the shop the sales- having ruiggeotecl wistaria and purple, and had them vigorously co-idemned as "too old" was looking hopeless and the customer was say- ing impatiently: "It does seem as if you might find something In this whole shop that I'd She Wanted a Color That Xover Was on Ijiuul or Sou. Doubtless, the saleswoman mlirht have "found something" if she could have produced a color that never was on land or sea. Otherwise her chances were small. On another occasion I heard a clerk who had evidently been suffer- ing from a similar' experience m ruur to a fellow worker, "She doesn't know what she does want." Unfor- tunately, the customer overheard and left the store indignantly. Bad sal manship? Yes, but can you much blame her? Think how many times a day she has to deal with this type the garment, and says with restless dissatisfaction, "No, that's not just what I want. Haven't you something The woman who knows what sue wants, but wants something almost Impossible, is another type that must be trying. For instance, she wants a 'blue light enough to bo becoming, but dark enough not to soil easily, and every blue that is light enough to be becoming is too light not to soil, and vice versa. AJI Evening Cent That Would Bo Nice for the- Morning. I once went'shopping with a wom- an who wanted a coat that would be suitable to wear for an evening coal and yet all right to wear in the morning when she went out with the baby. Every coat that was dressy enough for evening she objected to as too dressy to run out in, and every coat that would have been good for that latter purpose wasn't suitable for evening wear. Naturally! Of course there are many women Can't Stand the Work from the path. "Good said Bobby, am then he stopped, forgetting all about what his mother said about not loit- ering. Mr. Pox, for It was he, came toward Bobby and asked what he had in his basket. this that he almost forgot to be po- lite and reached ..toward Bobby's basket as if to take It.' Then he drew back anrj; said: really feel I should help you to carry such a heavy basket. You are such little fellow." "Oh! I am said Bobby Duck, puffing up as big as he could "and I am brave, too. See my and he threw back his coat so Mr ix could see he had one.

Perhaps the shopper has some vague idea .that no prosaic concrete reality could possibly approach. Per- haps she expects her new suit to make her look entirely different, young if she Is old, handsome if she is plain, well set up if she has a poor figure. And when she looks in the mirror and sees much the same woman, she thinks it is the fault of to make one garment servo two pur- poses. These should make up their minds before starting out which Is tho more Important use and what> they will sacrifice. Know Appro.vitnntely What You Wnnt in Color, Price and Style. For the clerk's sake, for your own sake and your wardrobe's sake, make up your mind before you leave your house as nearly as possible what you want in color, style and price. Then tell the clerk these factors. Don't leave her to guess the price from your appearance and then blame her if she guesses too high or too low-. Don't force her to find out the color, and style you want by a long, toilsome process of elimination. Of course It Is her business as a saleswoman to help you make up your mind, but it is yours as an in- telligent woman to have a mind ready to make up. Right. Man in Proper; Place.

Of the many structures in the body that are constantly working and being overworked, the kidneys oc- cupy a very important place. It Is mainly thrxi them that the substances which are of no value in the blood are got out of our body. The blood not only carries those things which help build up the tissues but it also car- ries away the waste materials that are formed. Consequently the kid- neys are always working, and fortu- nately for us they can accomplish a great deal when the necessity arises. Under certain conditions, however, trouble may occur.

Fortunately much may be done to prevent the occurrence of the at- 'acks even if the condition cannot be cured. The patient should avoid physical strains as much as possible, and any faulty habits of eating or drinking be corrected. Care should be taken to avoid getting chilled as that throws extra work on the kid- neys.
