BUSINESS BEFORE AND AFTER ELECTION
It is illuminating to note how some of the news
papers that a Lew brief days ago.—before election, —
were insisting that the business of the country is
headed straight for the rocks of destruction, have
suddenly begun emphasizing the fact that nothing
of the sort is true.
It is encouraging and gratifying, in a way, to
see su/h'journals joining now in the movement to
toicrf!ase confidence in the tinancial and industrial
institutions of the country in order to help business,
the underlying conditions of which have all along
been sound. The reading public, however, would
have far more respect for the opinions of such jour
nals had they lent their aid to business just as en
thusiastically before election as they are doing
now when no votes are to be gained by preaching
the doctrine of commercial and industrial pes
indeed the newspapers that were throwing cold
water on business activities during the recent polit
ical campaign were doing so at big risk to their
own interests. Business men do not relish having
handicaps placed on their activities to aid a political
cause. The newspapers responsible for the placing
Vol' such handicaps knew they were taking big
chances and that, perhaps, is the reason they are
so tpiick.—following llie close of the political cam
paign when everything that could be gained in the
form of political advantage had been gained,—to
change their attitude and lo join the other news
papers which all along have been lending encour
ji'.'cme.nt that is necessary to boost business to the
highest possible state of development in this coun-
Iry. In short the erstwhile "calamity howling"
newspapers are seeking now, by their changed tone,
lo set themselves right with the legitimate business
interests they were harassing a week ago.
Thoughtful readers, however, will have difficulty
in figuring out the consistency of I hose journals
which before election said the tariff was ruining
1 lie nation and which now are saying that business
is picking up everywhere,—true as the latter asser
tion is. For it must be remembered that we have
the same tariff now as before election and the Dem
ocratic party, which is responsible for that tariff,
still is in control of both the branches of Congress
and lias no intention of repealing the tariff law.
ANOTHER THEORY ON DIVORCE
The divorce evil, as it has come to be called, has
been accounted for in many ways. It fias been at
tributed to a hundred and one conditions, arid all
sorts of changes have been recommended that the
divorce courts may become less industrious. Now
comes the suggestion, in an address delivered before
the International Purity Congress in Kansas City,
that the frequent moving ol American families from
place to place is back of many divorces, because
young people are thus prevented from maintaining
long acquaintanceships "through which proper life
partners can be selected."
No harm is done by'advancing numerous sup
posed reasons for the growing demand for divorces
in so many states of the Union. Some of the theo
ries may some time aid in getting at the root of the
matter and consequently in reducing the number of
separations of married couples. Thus far the guess
ing, surmising, supposing, presupposing, concluding
and asserting have failed to solve the problem.
Perhaps the great trouble with the various theories
advanced is that they need to bo proved in actual
A natural supposition would be that the more
YtAKRISBtIKG STAR-INDEPENDENT, MONDAY EVENING, .NOVEMBER 9, 1914.
frequently families move the larger would the
young people's circles of acquaintance become, giv
ing them greater opportunity to choose companions
of the opposite sex, —life companions if matters
reach a sufficiently serious stage,—from among a
larger number of possibilities. Young men and
young women do not as a rule make their firmest
friendships among their neighbors. Young people
make their acquaintances in the grammar and the
high schools, or at their work, or sometimes, unfor
tunately, on the curb stone. They may know their
neighbors of their own ages to speak to or nod to,
but they most often go for their good times, inno
cent or otherwise, with their friends of the schools
or the offices or the streets.
The theory that the increase of divorces is due
to families moving around from place to place too
often to alLow the young people to form prolonged
friendships, may be fundamentally a true one. Yet
frequent changing of residence by families can have
nothing to do with it unless the assumption be
included that young people are in the habit of
choosing their companions from among neighbors
with whom they may have nothing in common,
rather than from among others of their own kind
with whom their daily activities bring them into

He Found the Doctor
A foreigner whose irfant son is re
ceiving treatment at the county hos
pital, under Dr. Hyman It. Wiener, ono
of jtho county physicians, went out in
search of tho doctor —instead of going
direct to the hospital—to got informa
tion concerning the condition of the
baby. Dr. Wiener lives at 306 North
Second street. The foreigner knew
neither the physician' 4 name nor the
number of his residence, but ho was
sure the office was on Second street. So
up the street he went. He entered the
first physician's office he came to. The
doctor resjionded to his call, but the
foreigner asked no questions. He sim
ply said; "You not t'he man I want."
He repeated this half a dozen or more
times, or until he finally located Dr.
Wiener. Then he stretched out both
his hands and shouted:
"Here is doctor. You the man I
want. I knew I'd find you.''
He then explained that he had been
looking for a little man who is stout
and wears spectacles. The foreigner

Deer Plentiful This Year
Deer in the country to the south of
Harrisburg are said to be plentiful this
year. Up at the Mont Alto sanatorium,
just within sight of the buildings, is
a section of State forestry land that,
has been reforestrated with young pine
treets. It is a favorite haunt of wild
deer and almost every evening for some
time the patients at the sanatorium —
those who are permitted to walk any
distance—linger in the twilight to see
the deer come out to feed. One even
ing recently nine deer were counted
feodng. Two were great buck deer
that will 110 doubt fall a prey to some
hunter, for the woods are going to be
full of deer hunters this year, as there
are more deer than for many years past.

AGAINST SPANKING CHILD: E <
Mr. VanDyke Takes Issue With Dr.
Stough Concerning Use of Hickory
Editor of the Star-Independent:
Dear Sir—Dr. .Stough says; "Pray
er and hickory make the best recipe in
r " e _ world for bringing up kids. The
best way to start in a revival in this
town would be for you people to go
, home to-night and give your kids a
1 good licking. *i ou promise that, I'll
; promise to convert tlieni."
K\ ery parent in the audience was
j urged to go home and beat his innocent
child. What would Dr. Stough think
| if some one bigger than he should beat
I him evei'y night! Children are hu
| man beings and ought to be treated
I as such.
By a strange coincidence the next
day after I)r. Slough said the above
(ieorge Adams, of Atlantic City, 13
years old, was given a spanking by hi*
mother for '' oystering'' with his fa
ther for a week, and the boy rode all
the way hidden under a trapdoor in a
vesti'bule car and was discovered when
jhe arrived in Harrisbtirg. He may take
the platform against Dr. Stough.
On this subject one of the greatest
men this country has produced said,
among other powerful things, which
space will not permit us to quote:
*'l do not 'believe in the government
of the lash. If any one of you ever
expects to whip your children again, I
want you to have a photograph taken
of yourself when yon arc in the act,
with your face red with vulgar anger,
and too face of the little child, with
eye« swimming in tears and the little
chin dimpled with fear, like a piece
of water struck by a sudden cold wind.
Have the picture'taken. If that child
should die, I cannot think of a sweeter
way to speud an autumn afternoon than
to go to the cemetery when the maples
are clad in tender goid and little scarlet
runners are coming, like poems of re
gret, from the sad hoart of earth and
sit down upon the grave and look at
that photograph and think of the flesh
now dust that you beat. I tell you it it
wrong; it is no way to raise children.''

At Orpheuni, Is a "Genius of Ragtime"
Where is the man, woman or child
who doesn.'t enjoy tho happy swing
There's a little girl at the Orplicum
theatre this week who has such a
clever way of singing the popular songs
of the day that her managers have
every confidence that she will help to
give the vaudeville house one of the
biggest weeks of its season. Her name
is Ruth Royc and her size isn't much
bigger than her name, but her standing
on the vaudeville circuits is just that
big that she went to the Palace theatre
in New York with a one week's con
tract and remained there seven weeks
before they would let her go.
Miss Royc isn't exactly the head
liner at the Orpheum this week because
there's a musical comedy act there
called "The Lawn Party" that occu
pies the distinguished position of top
liner, and there's a big troupe of Arabs
there too, but Ruth says she's going to
give each of these big acts a run for
their money and she'll make the town
give her credit for being the headliner
A girl who can so endear herself
to tho hearts of vaudeville fans that
she remains in o"nc theatre for a whole
week ought to be able to make folks sit
up and listen all right, and that's what
Ruth proposes to do in Harrisburg.
