The constitution is one of the most
venerable of American classics. It was
first published in 1789 in a limited, auto
graph edition, which has been followed
bv numerous other issues incorporating
much intensely facinating and absorb-
ing new material. The last of these,
the fifteenth, sometimes known as the
Sable suffrage edition, never attained
any considerable circulation sourh of
the Ohio river. At the present time a
new edition de luxe, to be subscribed
for by persons with incomes in excess
of $2,00, is under way, orders being
taken therefore at the various capitols.
While not included in Eliot’s light
some Five Feet of Foam, Froth ard
Fantasy, the constitution is by some
classed as humor «nd by others treated
as a joke. It is never regarded as
much between friends.
The constitution is to blame fur the
establishment of the United States sen
ate, although the job of maintenance
has been turned over to the Standard
Oil Company. One of the brightest
ironies of the document is that the
house of representatives shall elect its
The constitution sets its be-iibboned
be-pumped foot down upon Mr. Rocke
feller making himself the Duke of
Cle/eland or Mr. Morgan taking the
tile of Prince Manhattan, yet permits
them to send their pleasantly tainted
coin over seas for importation free of
duty to the Nabob of Naipur and the
Barion of Worms. It also provides that
no federal officeholders shall accept any
preient or emolument from a foreign
grandee; but it has been powerless to
prevent the king of Abyssinia from
unloading quarterly consignments of
the gaudiest zebras in Africa upon our
The constitution provided that the
President shall be the commander-in-
chief of the army and navy, but,unfor
tunately, made no allowance for his
rewriting Webster’s Unabridged Dic-
itionary, designating the most talented
liars in the country and naming his
successor. Another matter to be
remedied is the clause that there shall
be no slaves in the United States, as
some provision must be made for the
After an absence extending over 70
years the constitution has returned to
the White House sad'y battered and
full of holes. It might be well to state
right here that it is far easier for a
rich man to go thrpugh one of these
holes than it is for him to go through
the eye of a nee lie—or to enter the
kingdom of Heavon, for that matter.

It is distinctly in the public interest
that bills limiting cold storage to six
months are Jnow well on their way
through the Legislatures of both New
York and New Jersay. Long ago
bacteriologists showed that refrigera
tion does not stop the process of decay
in food but merely imposes a check
and that unwholesome conditions are
present even where actual decomposition
inifrht be postponed for years. The
farmers and other producers should
benefit, too, by these measures, which
affect the practice of storing food
