Night Editor-LEROY L. OSBORN',
"Agriculture is gradually getting
its house in order again," in the opin-
ion of Secretary Jardine, who has just
made a tour of the western states.
And he further believes that the far-
mers are getting back to a position
where there will probably be little
demand for farm legislation from the
next congress. And in this opinion,
Mr. Jardine is supported by num-
erous other men whose business it is
to study the desires of the people of
the great agriculture districts, among
them Senator Curtis, Kansas, Repub-
lican whip, who recently spent con-
siderable time traveling around hi
home state.
There Is no finer indication of pros'
perity ahead than such a healthy con-
dition among the farming community.
Despite the financial superiority of
the industrial areas, the agriculturist
is still the man who feeds the world
and makes industry possible, and he
and his fellows make up more than
40 percent of the population of the
There has been atendency, espec-
ially" during the past few years, to
think that the farmers were taking
advantage of their position, and were
forcing legislation upon c6ngress at
the slightest provocation; but the
announcement that they are now
ready to stand on their own feet
again, with a possible request for
loans for some of the poorer areas, is
in itself evidence of good faith in their
efforts to secure legislation during the
years since the vrar-
Farmers really aren't the. worst
people in the world, but they have
to contend with an assumed superior-

ity on the part of the city dweller
that must be hard to accept. And
when we consider the way in ihich
the average city person tries to be-
little the farmer's importance, per-
haps we .can find justification for
their demands when they were in a
position to make demands. And we
must give the farmers credit for re-
linquishing their partial control of
the legislative machinery after their
demands had been satisfied to a ne-
cessary extent,-there are few com-
binations which have done that be-
The powers have practically come
to an agreement on a settlement of
the situation arising out of the re-
cent anti-foreign outbreak in China,
and it is expected that the plan will
be transmitted to the Chinese provin.
cial government in the near future.
While no definite information of the
plan of settlement has been announc-
ed, there is much about the manner in
which this situation has been handled
that is worthy of praise.
With the Chinese outbreaks, the
powers acted together in the protec-
tion of all the foreign peoples in
China, and with the secession of the
rioting, the powers immediately gath-
ered, by means of diplomatic ex-

changes between the various capitals,d
and an agreement on the proper pro-
cedure to be followed was reached.
Surely when such splendid coopera-
tion is shown among the nations in a
matter such as this, it should be pos-
sible to find some method of co-ordin-
ating them for the business of.keep-
-ing peace in the world.

No wiser words have been spoken
or remembered in all the controversy
in regard to evolution than were ut-
tered in his farewell address at
Princeton by the late Dr. James Mc-
Cosh, the eminent Scotch Presbyter-
ian divine, sometime professor of
metaphysics and logic in Queens Col-
lege, Belfast, and later President of
Princeton. Dean West, is to be thank-
ed for recalling them to us. If only
the Scotch Irish Presbyterians of
Tennessee could have heard these
words at the time of their considera-
tion of the "anti-evolution" bill, it
would doubtless never have been en-
acted. These sentences should be
kept on record and in mind for future
When a scientific theory is
brought before us, our first inquiry1
is not whether it is consistent with
religion, but whether it is true. If
It is found to be true on the prin-
ciple of the induction of Bacon, it
will be found to be consistent with
religion on the principle of the un-
ity of knowledge.
"Is it true?" The Legislature of
Tennessee did not pause to make this
inquiry. It simply assumed that the
evolution theory was inconsistent
with what is supposed to be essential
to religious belief. Nor is the Court
permitting itself to be informed as
to the consistency of the evolution-
ary theory of Divine creatio with the
biblical record. In the title of the
act, it is the teaching of the "evolu-
tion theory" that is prohibited, where-
as in the body of the act it is the
teaching of of a theory which "denies
the Divine creation" that is made un-
lawful. But there are millions who
though their minds give support to
the evolutionary theory have also a
belief in a Divine creation and a faith
with a foundation as firm as that of
the pious prosecutors in this case.
This trial is nearly at an end, but
it has served, with all its humilating
accompaniments, to illustrate two
outstanding characteristics of the hu-
man mind. First of all it has exhib-
ited the tenacity of the mind in cling-
ing to inherited ideas, in holding on
to convctions acquired by association,
or in defending atavistic inclinatons.
For the thought of man has a sort of
intellectual notalgia when separated
from the doctrines in whose atmos-

phere his mind was brought up. It
was that attitude which resisted the
Copernican theory, which put a new
world discoverer into chains, which
has treated the greatest philosophers
with contempt and sent renowned in-
ventors to their graves in penury.
This is the dark side of it. Even
when the public has been stirred by
the reasoning of some powerful ad-
vocate before its tribunal, he has been
told to await a "more convenient sea-
son," which has never come.
But the other exhibition has been
of an attitude of the human mind in
which there is reason for highest
hope. There is the mysterious urge
which in spite of all the weight of
precedent, the clog of habit, the love
of the familiar, the downward pull
of passion and the peril of failure
gives one a persistent impulse to-
ward something better than what is.
It is the unsatisfied mind pushing
further back to get some interpreta-
tion of the whole series of creation in
order to find some suggestion of the
specific consummation toward whici
what has preceded is persistently
working; for the existence of the dif-
ferent forms of energy must, while
leading back the thought to some
common definite Goal and to a "un-
ity of that which man is and of that
which he wishes to be."

Daily Dissertation
Today's Topic: Dancing.
If you think we're going to quote
Milton or Shakespeare about this
dancing business, you are psycopathic.
We have others things to say. First
we will delve into history.
Dancing caused the fall of Rome,
of Babylon, and of the something or
other hall in Boston, but that was in
recent times and doesn't count in the
historical part of this dissertation,
but we mentioned it anyhow just to
be saying something.
Within the ken of most of you who
read this (you must be reading this
or you wouldn't have known we said
that) was the craze for what was
known as "Marathon Dancing," so-
called because there was much about
the game which resembled the Greek
battle of Marathon, and if you don't
know about that go look it up in
any respectable history of Greece;
we haven't time to tell the yarn
Well, about this marathon dancing.
The idea seemed to be that a prize or
the honor or something went to the
person or couple who could stay in
the ring the longest while an orches-
tra, sometimes working in shifts,
supplied something which served as
music. This craze died out with its
Dancing at the present moment is
far from being a dead art, however.
We aren't sure that Gilbert Seldes in-
cluded dancing in "The Seven Lively
Arts,' because we have never read
the entire work, but at all events, we
should have. It is really quite live-
ly, and some skill is required in the
process of dancing-that is, in some
cases. Others seem to feel that there
is nothing to the process except get-
ting a date and buying a ticket. This
type is always thought of very kindly
by the other dancers.
The proceedure is thus: Approach
the gynch of your dreams, bow ever
so slightly, and, opening your arms,
say) "How's for shakin' a foot kid?"
If she desires to dance with you she
will rise languidly and say, "Hell
yes, 'bo," at the same time extend-
ing her arms. At this point you seize
her firmly around the waist with your
right and feint with your left. No,
that's wrong, you grab her right mit
with your left it the referee isn't look-
ing. Pull her to you, and park her
head on your bossom so that your
chin will strike the exact center of
the part in her hair. If her hair isn't
parted use your own judgment. The
music should have been going for
some 'time before this is done.
Now that the clinch is established,
shove off delicately with your left
hoof and plough through the dancers
already assembled on the floor. It is
considered very poor taste to be the
first couple on the floor, particularly
if you have never danced before.
A warning should be issued to all
newcomers of the dance. There are
in most public dancing emporiums
gentlement who go under the title
of "bouncer." This person is gener-
ally a kindly soul who goes among
the dancers ,to see that all have a
good time. Should he tap you on the
shoulder and say "Cut it out, kid,
dat sorta stuff don't go here, get me?"
you should never reply with anything
but a courteous "T' hell you say.
Well if you don't like it you know
what you can do." This will impress
him, and, he will probably seek to
know you better.

Well, it filled 'most all of the col-
umn, anyhow.
