Since the late storm at Chicago has
ubsided, it is noticeable that the Re-
publican leaders did not want John-
son. They did not want Wood. They
wanted harmony, and they now claim
they achieved it. With Calvin Cool-
idge as the candidate for vice Presi-
dent, the ticket apparently acquires
greater strength than a vice Presiden-
tial nominee usually gives it. Like
McKinley, Harding comes to the nom-
ination with an established reputation
for party regularity. He is a shrewd,
practical, rather hard-headed man,
who harbors no visionary ideas, who
will use the political tools at his hand
rather than fashion new ones. But
Harding lacks the personal appeal
that McKinley exercised, and he faces
the prospect of the campaign without
the great advantage which McKinley
possessed. For, though Bryan in 1896
had injected the free silver issue into
the campaign, the protective tariff
was the policy for which the Republi-
can party pre-eminently stood, even
in 96, and McKinley’s name was asso-
ciated with the law that embodied that
tariff policy. The tariff is not a vital
issue this year. The peace treaty
seems te be the issue, and the fight

being destroyed on both sides of the

upon his discharge in April, 1920,

the red-blooded type of man whose

His physical fitness and mental

chances that most aviators shun, al-

disclaimer when faced with the tri-

course led him straight across Lake
Michigan, and he followed his needle

competitors circled the water and lost
valuable time. His charge across the
lake was one way of showing confi-

The real conditioning he believes ir

Jefferson’s Last Sentiment.
When asked nine days before his
death to write a sentiment for the
forthcoming fiftieth anniversary of
the Declaration—the day of jubilee
on which, by a singular coincidence,
he was destined to die—Jefferson |
wrote: “The eyes of men are open-
ed and opening to the rights of men.
It has become clear that the masses
of men are not born with saddles on
their backs nor a favored few booted
and spurred ready to ride them legit-
imately by the grace of God.”
Making Roman Candles.
The process by which the Roman
candles are turned out may give a
general idea of the construction of
pyrotechnics. The tubes of Roman
candles are merely layers of paper
rolled in shape by hand, each layer
being glued to the others. They are
made in all lengths and sizes, from
the tiny one that splutters out but two
stars to the one which holds thirty
stars in its yard long length. When
the tubes have been finished one end
is plugged with clay, and then the
process of loading begins. A bit of
slow burning powder is first placed in
the tube, then a star, then more pow-
der, etc., until the tube has been
charged with the required number of
stars. A bit of the same slow burn-
ing powder is sprinkled on the last
star; a fuse is then inserted and the
end sealed. The loading is not done
by hand—that process is too slow.
Twenty-four empty tubes are stood
upright in a vertical frame, and into
them the powder and stars are alter-
nately placed by an ingenious mech-
anism. Then twenty-four steel ram-
mers firmly press the charges in
place. Bombshells are made of papier
mache. The spheres are molded in
halves and are then joined by glue.
After the glue has set the globes are
wound with stout twine.
Pinwheels like other playthings,
must needs look pretty in order to
sell well, and the bright colors and
fancy patterns are put upon them by
the deft fingers of women.

Under the provision of the bill pass-
ed by the recent General Assembly, a
complete enumeration of the veterans
of the Confederate Army and Navy
now living in Virginia is to be made
during the coming year.
The bill makes it the duty of the
commissioners of revenue of each
county or city, at the time of taking
lists of property for taxation, to enu-
merate the living veterans of the Con-
federate Army or Navy in his county
or city, obtaining their names, age
and postoffice addresses.
Senator Julian Gunn, who repre-
sented the bill, said the enumeration
will serve the double purpose of bring-
ing to the attention of the authorities
worthy cases of former soldiers who
are in needy circumstances, and at
the same time enable State pension
authorities to check their lists and
strike from them the names of those
who are not entitled to receive the
