SPEAKING WELL OF COMPETITORS
Professional etiquette is going to be tried by
the members of the New York State Music Teach
ers' Association. It is to be hoped that the im
provement will be permanent and that it will iu
time be introduced among musicians of artistic
The New York teachers have confessed that they
have been "knocking" one another and "steal
ing" one another's pupils. They now repent of
their sins and want to prevent further breaches of
professional ethics. Instead of speaking disparag
ingly of one another's work and making gestures
of disgust at the mention of rivals, they will here
after smile sweetly and say the pleasantest of things
about their, to all appearances, highly esteemed
Physicians have a code of ethics which has done
much to inspire in the public a respect for the
profession. Honorable doctors of medicine do not
sueak about whispering of the failures of their
fellow practitioners and seeking to draw to them
selves the patients of those other practitioners. On
the contrary, they say nothing but good about their
competitors, or if they know nothing good to say,
they make no remarks at all on the subiect.
Music teachers who are constantly finding fault
with others of their profession can hardly be con
sidered reliable. Their judgments certainly are
biased and when they give expression to their
unfair opinions they are exhibiting rather mean
dispositions. They would be respected, on the
other hand, if they were to have occasional words
of praise for worthy rivals.
The music teachers merely provide an example
because the reforms which those of New York are
bringing about happen to suggest this discussion.
The professions and trades are very few. in fact, in
which competitors are not most often "knockers."
The milkman imparts startling information regard
ing the sanitary conditions surrounding another
milkman; the butcher knows of deplorable unfair
ness in the dealings of another butcher; the barber
makes remarks about the poor job done by the pre
ceding hair-cutter; the lawyer has serious fault to
find with the methods of the member of the bar on
the next floor, and the shoemaker cannot under
stand how the fellow who put heels on those shoes
onee before could have made such a botch of it.
Two of a trade %vho are able to say compliment
ary things of each other from time to time are a
rare couple. They deserve the highest respect
whenever any such are found.
WHERE TOURISTS HAVE NO BUSINESS
There is a recklessness which does not deserve
to be encouraged in persons who want to visit the
belligerent countries at this time for no other pur
pose than to gratify their curiosity. If Secretary
Bryan in his published statement that the State
Department does not deem it advisable to issue
passports to mere sightseers was at all at fault, the
fault was that he was entirely too polite in his
refusal of the passports. What he said was, in
The Department believes that the presence of American
tourists in and about places where military operations are
being carried on is most undesirable, and can give such
persons no assurance that they will be immune from arrest
and difficulties if they persist in attempting to visit such
Had Secretary Bryan told the would-be tour
ists just what he thvught of their intentions, his
■ •■■hV ■ % * •«. , ' • * • i .;v« ' •*3
HARRTSBURG STAR-INDEPENDENT, THURSDAY EVENING, APRIL 29, 1915,
communication might have made very interesting
reading matter. He might have said, for instance,
that the Department believes that the presence of
American gadders in and about places where mili
tary operations are being carried on would be de
sirable only in the event that the gadders received
suitable injuries to compensate them for their reck
lessness. and that although the department can
give such persons no assurance that they will b*
immune from harm, yet it sincerely hopes that if
they persist in attempting to visit such places
they will be put to all the inconveniences that their
rashness so richly deserves.
Tourists have as much right to seek pleasure in
the belligerent countries during this great strug
gle as to have curious outsiders to look for diver
sion in the operating rooms of surgeons during
seriqus operations, or at the bedsides of dying
strangers for whom they fcave no concern.
This war is not being conducted for a spectacle.
Blood is being shed iu bitter earnest. The scenes
of conflict are not places of entertainment where
any persons who have the price of admittance can
see thrilling sights and experience unusual sen
sations. The tragedies which are being enacted on
those scenes are terrible ones and persons who
would see them enacted as they would see a play
on the stage are worthy only of contempt.
Europe is in great need of volunteer surgeons
and nurses. These America is supplying in geuer
ous numbers. The afflicted nations are not in need,
however, of idle tourists. Americans who will help
are wanted, —not Americans who will hinder.
MAKING OUR "BEAUTIES" AT HOME
Just as the necessities of war are said <o'have
mothered inventions in Europe of new and more
powerful explosives, bread made out of straw and
guns capable of hurling missiles further and fur
ther than under the old standards, so, also as the
result of the war, inventive genius has been devel
oping in America, although, perhaps, along slightly
different lines. While we in United States are not
so much concerned about the development of things
useful on battlefields as are our brethren who are
belligerents, we must nevertheless find ways of pro
viding ourselves with many things useful in peace
for which, before the war, we depended on Euro
pean sources of supply. Fortunately Americans are
proving themselves well equipped to meet the emer
gency and are turning out products "just as good
as'' and in many instances "better than'' similar
products that we used to get almost exclusively
For instance we are told that the Manufacturing
Perfumers' Association of the United States, which
is holding a convention in New York City, has let
it be known through delegates that the war will
not "cause a scarcity of rouge, perfumes, soaps,
and other aids to beauty," for the simple reason
that the American manufacturers of these things
uot only have lately invented articles of this descrip
tion which are "just as good" as the European
brands but also have "put on more steam" §o as
to be able to turn out large enough quantities of
them to offset the shortage of importations attribu
table to the European conflict.
These assurances from the American manufactur
ers that they are now thoroughly equipped to make
"beauties" right at home doubtless will be very!
comforting to those of our American ladies past
fifty who may inwardly harbor the desire to pre
serve the bloom of youth which they, perhaps, had
Don't he too sure May frosts will not come on the heels
of the slimmer weather we have been having in April! ' j
We have laws against catching fish that are too small
but none against telling stories about fish that are too long.
They are fighting the proposed amendment under which
otir City Commissioners would no longer be "non-partisan."
When were our Commissioners ever that?
With the State's pay rolls increasing and the State's
revenues decreasing the Governor will have a good deal of
cutting to do to "make the coat fit the cloth."
Is there any actual progress toward the end of the war
in the fact that 500 or 600 Frenchmen perished when a ;
warship was blown up, or that 600 more Germans were
slaughtered in the trenches? Does the sacrifice in either
case bring any appreciable advantage to either side in the
great European deadlock? x

ENRICH THE BLOOD
Hood's SroaparUU, a Spring Tonic-
Madicine. Is Necessary
Everybody is troubled at this sea
son with loss of vitality, failure of
appetite, that tired feeling, or with
bilious turns, dull headaches, indiges
tion and other stomach troubles, or with
pimples and other eruptions on the face
and body. The reason is that the blood
is impure and impoverished.
Hood's Sarsaparilla relieves all these
ailments. It is the old reliable medicine
that has stood the test of forty years,—
that makes pure, rich, red blood—that
strengthens every organ and builds up
the whole system. It is the all-the
year-round blood-purifier and health
giver. Nothing else acts like it, for
nothing else is like it. There is no real
substitute; so be sure to get Hood's.
Ask your druggist for it to-day, and
begin taking it at once.—Adv.

Discusses Suffrage Campaign
An interesting interview with Mrs.
Mabel Cronisc Jones, of this city, by
a Najv York "Tribune" writer, on the
suffrage situation in this State, ap
peared in that newspaper yesterday.
The "Tribune" story follows:
"■No votes for women veils, no hikes,
no circus stunts for the Pennsylvania
suffragists. Their summer campaign
will be conducted along purely educa
tional lines, in contrast to the spectac
ular methods of New York's battle for
the vote. Suffrage leaders all over the
country are watching the race between
tLese two States with particular inter
est because of this contrast in method.
Mrs. Mabel C. Jones, of Harrisburg,
one of the leaders of the Pennsylvania
campaign, came to New York yesterday
to attend the annual convention of the
National Society of the Daughters of
1812, but she found time between com
mittee meetings to talk of the suffrage

Against Freak Advertising
" "The Pennsylvania Dutch are very
conservative, you know. We wouldn't
dare try any spectacular stunts with
them," she said. "Even the little
votes for women veil, w-hich is really
very pretty, was turned down by our
convention, aud as for the hike, it
would be out of the question. It is the
policy of the Pennsylvania women that
freak advertising antagonizes more vot
ers than it converts. We are going to
have a big parade in Philadelphia Sat
urday just to give the campaign a good
start. Then there will be no more
demonstrations until a few weeks be
fore election. We shall have booths
at the county fairs, speakers at the
Chautauqua assemblies and field work
ers all over the State to address pub
lic meetings. Often these workers go
into mountain hamlets of the Pennsyl
vania Dutch, where the children of the
first settlers do not yet speak English.

suffragist, and so is the State Superin

very minute. He has made it very
plain for a long time that he favored
allowing the question to be put to the
vcters, but he sidestepped any attempt 1
to get him on record as to the suffrage
issue itself. We have decided now that
it is time for him to take a stand. I ;
have written to him twice, and intend
to keep on writing until I get an an-j

Daughters of 1812 Election
"Mrs. Jones said suffrage would not
be an issue in the election of the
Daughters of 1812, although,the most
prominent candidate for president is
Mrs. Alice Bradford Wiles, a Chicago
suffragist. One of the planks in Mrs.
Wiles' platform provides for annual
meetings in Washington immediately
after the convention of the Daughters
of the American Revolution. Under
the present system the meetings is not
held until a week afterward in New
York. The delay entails expense and
waste of time for persons like Mrs. !
Jones, who have political affairs calling
them home. The election will be held
at the Waldorf-Astoria."
