THE WIFE, THE SLAP, AND HUliltV'S POCKETS.
Of course, the judge who declared the other day
that a man was justified in slapping his wife if she goes
through his pockets was speaking facetiously and with
out any idea that his remark would be literally con
strued. Whether a man would be justified in slapping
kis wife under any circumstances whatever is a point
upon which it would be extremely difficult, not to say
dangerous, to express an opinion. Old Blackstone
thought it an evidence of the tender-heartedness of the
ommon law that it prohibited the husband from beat
ing his wife with a stick thicker than his thumb, so
.that In his day a slap could evidently have been admin
istered without any apprehension as to the conse
quences from a legal point of view, whenever the man
felt like it. Needless to say, however, things are dif
ferent now, and In these days of women's rights and
aay divorce it is questionable whether It would be safe
to slap no matter how great might be the exasperation.
Another Judge not long ago indicated the proper
ourso for the husband to pursue when the lady of the
house is threatening to drive him to distraction with
ker wordy assaults. He mustn't slap her. Ho mustn't
toll her to "shut up her mouth," or anything like that.
He mustn't even enter a protest when some innocently
meant comment of his own Is being distorted out of all
resemblance to Its original phrasing and intended sig
nificance. No, indeed, for that would only he pouring
11 upon the fire and adding fuel to the flame. What
he must do under these trying conditions is to refrain
from saying a word. It may not be easy, but it Is
ae,cessary to exercise a strict self-control and to allow
the most injurious misrepresentations pass without a
protest. If this is done the storm will gradually blow
Itself out and pretty soon the clouds will have rolled
away and the sun will again be shining. Should the
man ho constitutionally incapable of theso tactics, then
all that is left him Is flight.
But If the husband may not slap the wife of his
bosom when she is applying to him all the Injurious
epithets u fertile and entirely untrammeled fancy can
cuggest, how absurd It would be to hold that he might
properly do so when she has been guilty of no more
serious offense than that of going through his pockets?
Why, everyono whoso experience is at all extended
knows that this Is one of the wife's Inalienable 'and Im
memorial privileges. Whose pockets should she go
through if not her husband's, and what are pockets
husband's pockets for anyhow if not to bo gone
through? If they should happen to contain anything
which it is not Intended for the wife to see the man
has only himself to blame for that; he should have
keen more careful; while as for the rest, Isn't It as
much hers as his anyhow?
But a judge will have his joke, Philadelphia Inquirer,

son, whichever you prefer, says that it Is wrong to
feed cheese to skunks. Especially If Mr. Skunk
doesn't llkd cheese. We've never approached close
enough to find out.

E. HUBllAltl) ON ADVERTISING.
Advertising is simply announcing to the world in
an effective way where you are, who you aro and what
you have to offer In tho way of human service or com
modity. All live men are advertisers, and the only man
who should not advortiso is the man who has nothing
to offer to the world in the way of human service, and
such a man is a dead one, whether he knows it or not.
Advertising is a legitimate and ethical proposition.
Life is too short for you to hide yourself away, mantled
in your modesty, and let the world hunt you out.
Even the dead aro advortlsers, for on visiting a beau
tiful cemetery I noticed that on nearly every marble
slab was given a list of the virtues, talents and beauti
ful qualities which the dead man was supposed to have
carried In stock.
This is what you call non-productive advertising
or advertising from an emotional standpoint.
Personally, I do not indorse it. Advertise while
you are alive, and send flowers to the man when he can

W0L1MU THE IiADDEH TO SUCCESS.
The Government a Cnroful Huycr.
This Is Especially Truo In tho Pur
chase of Cloth in Uig Lots, Says
The men of the United States army
come nearer knowing to a certainty
what they are buying in tho way of
cloth than do any other consumers
in tho country, says Mary Heaton
Vorse in Success Magazine. When
tho government gives out a million
dollar cloth contract it sees to it that
it gets material according to speci
fication. Tho specific contracts for various
sorts of cloth are elaborate and go
Into tho technical side of the matter
the number of threads to be used
to tho yard, the kind of wool to bo
used in the manufacture for the
United States soldier has to bo well
dressed in clothes that will stand
the strain of weather and of work.
On Governor's Island, New York
City, there is a testing laboratory
for cloth. A specification of the
weight per linear yard of eacli kind
of cloth is mentioned; each bolt of
goods is weighed, and if It falls short
of the proper weight it is thrown out.
Next the question of wear and tear
is considered and again the specifi
cation is stated that each special
kind of cloth will stand a strain of
so many pounds to the inch filling
way. So after weighing the next
test is to cut a sample and try in a
machine the strength of the cloth.
If It will not stand this test the cloth
is thrown out.
After the cloth has been pronounc
ed perfect for weight and strength,
tho dye tests are made; it must
stand two acid testB for perspiration
and the material must stand boiling
for ten minutes in a certain soap sol
ution, showing that it will stand
washing with strong alkalis; and fi
nally comes the weather test, the
material being exposed thirty days
on the roof without changing color
If the cloth has passed its exami
nations successfully each yard of
each piece of cloth is inspected, being
run over machines for the purpose.
while inspectors watch for any im
perfection In the weave. An eighth
of a yard for each imperfection is
charged to the manufacturer.
'So when the cloth Is finally sent
to the contractor to bo made into uni
forms it is known to bo of really
good' material. Each spool of
tnreaa, each button, each lining,
each filling used in the clothes of
soldiers has its own special test.

Fatigue That Follows Monotony of
Work or Exercise.
It is said that for horses the hard
est road out of London is tho most
level one. There are no hills to
climb and descend, and the tired
horse has no chance to rest one set
of muscles while another works.
Monotony produces fatigue, and be
cause this particular road is one
dead, monotonous level more horses
die on it than on any other leading
out of London.
We can oven take a charitable
view of the time taken dally by the
typewriter girl for tho arrangement
of her hair. Her fingers aro con
gested by the work of writing and tir
ed by contact with the hard keys of
her machine, and the different feel
ing of her hair and tho little plays
and movements of her fingers in ad
justing it are a distinct stimulation
Fatigue following long continued
exercise is really a mild form of ill
ness which arises from overexerting
some one part of the body. In writ
ing, for instance, the fingers move up
and down hardly more than a quarter
of an inch as they travel across the
page. Yet this Is hard work for
their little muscles and burns up
tissue in tho fingers very fast. If
rest intervals aro too short and in
frequent, there Is not time for the re
moval of the waste products of this
destruction through the normal chan
nels of tho body and congestion re
sults. The feeling of fatigue or pain
that follows long continued use of
any of the muscles is due to the in
fluence of such poisonous material,
as well as to the .stretching of tho
tissues caused by the pressure of the
blood which settles there. Paul W.
Goldsbury in Atlantic.

House nor Senate has any Republican' !
attempted to make loyalty or opposi
tion to reciprocity a test of party
standing. President Taft, however,
continues to labor with Republican
members In the hope of winning a
majority of his party to the side of
His task his been rendered meas
urably difficult by the boastful de
clarations of Democratic leaders that
tho reciprocity bill Is Democratic
doctrine, and his efforts have not
been helped by tho assertion of Re
publican leaders that the claim is
founded in truth, Tho Prosldont
says that it will be a very poor ad
ministration victory if less than a ma
jority of the Republican members of
the House are a party to It.
Senator Penrose, during the time'
that he has been In Washington, has
demoted himself mainly to reorgani
zation of tho Senate committees. He
has succeeded in reasoning the reg-1
ular Republican Senators out of their i
attitude of belligerency toward the
insurgents and he has gained tho con
fidence of the latter In a remarkable
degree. He has conferred with in
surgent Senators Individually and
collectively. They have visited him
singly, In pairs and in threes.
Since his return from Philadelphia,
he was In conference with half a doz
en or more of them at one time. A
good understanding has been estab
lished and the Insurgents are thor-
oughly convinced that Penrose In
tends to see that their committee as
signments will be In proportion to
their numbers and activity that
they will be treated in the makeup of
committees as Republicans and not
as lnsurrectos. It is almost certain,
in consequence of the Pennsylvania
Senator's efforts, that the Republi
can committee on committees will
complete its work by the end of this
week, and that tho committee's an
nouncement in the Senate on Mon
day will be found generally satis
factory. Penrose has been so busy with
Senate reorganization that ho has
not been able to consider legislative
matters. It is known that he is con
vinced that reciprocity is stronger in
tho Senate than it was previous to
March 4, when there was a majority,
though a small one, for it. There
fore, he sees no good to he achieved
by making a fight against it. It is
his policy to let It come to a vote as
speedily as possible, which, to his
mind, will complete the work for
which the special session of Congress
was called by the President.
With regard to other items on the
Democratic House caucus program
Senator Penrose says:
"The Republicans of the Senate
are necessarily on the defensive. Wo
cannot decide our course with re
gard to the measures proposed in the
House until they come before us in
concrete form. It is our duty as Re
publicans to save all we can."

State Zoologist Surface has receiv

plum twigs encircled with Irregular
bands of eggs, sent by a valued cor

Upon examination Dr. 1 Surface
found that these were the eggs of a
Canker worm, and at once wrote an
Important and timely letter of warn
ing, as follows:
"The eggs which you sent to us
from your plum trees are those of
the Fall Canker Worm. From these
would hatch little "loop worms,"
"measuring worms" or "span
worms,,' more properly called "Can
ker worms, which would feed on
tho leaves of the trees and grow until
almost midsummer, when they will
suddenly disappear, and go into the
ground, and remain there until the
latter part of the fall, and then come
forth. The wingless females would
climb the trunks of tho trees to tho
twigs and deposit their eggs. In this
state they have tho habit of remain
ing in the ground until late winter,
when they climb tho trees and lay
"It is desirable for you to remove
as many of these eggs by hand as
possible, taking care not to merely
drop them on the ground, as by so
doing they may hatch there, and
climb the trunk of the tree to the
leaves to feed, hut we recommend de
"Also It will be Impossible to re
move all of them by hand, and as It
looks as though there might be quite
an outbreak of the Canker Worm
this spring, I would adviso you, by
all means, to be prepared to spray at
once with arsenate of load as soon as
the leaves unfold and the young
worms commence to feed. They
are much more easily killed by spray
ing while they are young. You can
do a better job by spraying, and you
can save the leaves and fruit on your
trees if this Is done early. If you
wait until after tho posts have been
present for some time, they will have
Injured the trees considerably, and
they will also be harder to kill. For
this reason it is advisable for you
to order your spray pump and arsen
