The church, is the greatest social
factor in the world. The church is
the greatest moral power and relig
ious influence in the world. But the
church from denominational dissensions is ecclesiastically
weak and politically impotent Were the church denom
inational united it would dominate the world, "its crowns
and parliaments, its presidents and congresses and all of
the world's officials high and low, religious and political.
Marriage is not only a social function, but is a re
ligious rite and a legal right The Catholic church holds
that marriage is still more than all these, that it is a sac
rament' In these times of loose divorce laws one mar
riage out of every eight or nine is dissolved by the courts.

There is the roe of the gray mullet wrapped in bees-wax,
smoked sturgeon, goose breasts and eels to tempt the epi
cure. There is the famous soy from Jopen, most popular
of the sauces, and cumquets, which are small sweet
oranges preserved by the Chinese. These are treated
much as ginger or rose leaves. For those determined upon
novelties there come rose-leaf jelly, or perhaps reindeer
flesh from the north, or roast swan and the former popu

delicacies are oniy for the wealthy, but then, it never

would more fully fill the place, he straightway makes
njp a case and sues for a separation. So overshadowing
has grown this abuse that national church assemblies,
associations and conferences are taking hold of the mat-tar.-
A leading idea among these church people seems to
bu that should the ministry refuse to mary divorced per
sens the abuse would be minimized. In this conclusion the
church and its ministers are wrong. The man or woman
who for any cause, save that of the Scriptural one, seeks
and consents to the breaking up of a home and the separ
ating of the members of his or her family, will care little
whether their next marriage be a rite or sacrament, or
neither. The legal sanction will prove entirely satisfac
tory. The church, however, being the greatest moral and
social power in every community, r. solid stand and a
square demand upon the part of its membership for
higher ideals and more stringent divorce laws, will not be

the Presbyterian General Assembly, both within the week

innocent children, all growing out of loosely enacted di-'
WOMAN AND THE NEWSPAPER.
The most attentive reader of the newspaper is the
woman. It is an undeniable fact that for the past half
century women have been given more and more to news
paper reading, and the men less and less. The latter
study the markets, read in a cursory way current politics,
glance at the editorial page, and scan the more exciting
Associated Press dispatches. "The women read all the
editorials which touch their lives at any point, or which
embody sentiment or high ideals, attentively, absorb care
fully all the local news, and devour society gossip and
social scandals. The writer of a meritorious editorial is
personally commended by women twice where he is com
mended once by men.
The biennial convention of the General Federation of
Women's Clubs was held in St. Louis Saturday. Melville
E. Stone, president of the Associated Press organization,
spoke of the influence of the women on newspapers. He
said that not a line of scandal would be printed in an
American newspaper were it not for the women. "No
large metropolitan newspaper can live without the sup
port of women," he continued. "Newspapers today are
edited for women and not for men. If the women of the
General Federation of Women's Clubs will set their faces
against scandal, the objectionable in journalism will disap
pear. Women have a joint responsibility with the editors
as to the class of news contained in the columns of daily
AS TO MACHINE-MADE PAPERS. '
The Lawrence Gazette: "Who makes the Kansas City
Journal and Kansas City Star? Both papers are widely
read in Kansas and yet one reader in a thousand knows,
or cares, who writes the things they read. Every reading
Kansan knows who makes the Topeka Capital, and the
Leavenworth Times and the Wichita Eagle, and the Atchi
Eon Glove and the Hutchinson News, and the Emporia
Gazette; every one of these papers is branded with the
individuality of the man who controls it The Kansas
City papers are machine made; they have no more indi
viduality than a cake of soap. And Kansas has not yet
become so highly civilized that her people desire to have
their thoughts made by machinery. The Kansas City
papers pick up the best talent of Kansas, run the young
men through the wringer, squeeze out every thought and
every good impulse, and every valuable idea, and throw
them over. The Kansas City papers have literary grave
yards where are buried the best men and the best talents
of Kansas. In those threadmills are men, yet young in
years, who could have made names for themselves in
Kansas, who are wearing out their lives as the mule in
the bottom of a dark mine wears his away. They thought
it was a great thing to be a writer on a Kansas City
paper; they got the job because they were bright and
smart, and had ideas and could. express them. Now they
are mere hacks, shut away from the world, and without
ambition and without hope save to earn money to live on,
and earn it with work as nard as that of a hod carrier!
The young man who goes from Kansas to a Kansas Cit;
paper will regret it all his life."
KANGAROO TAILS FOR SOUP.
A writer on London markets and of what can be found
in them which differs so noticeably from the things to
eat otrered in the American market says that while the
London market like that of New York is cosmopolitan
that the latter for foreign . delicacies holds the lead. Of
course they have mangoes from the West Indies, custard
apples from Madeira, beans from France and other beau
tiful fruits from all over the world, but turn to another
shop. Here are kangaroo tails for a new departure in
soups hanging in the butchers' windows as naturally as a
leg of lamb. Snails, too, are very pleasing to London pal
ates, and still more remarkable, the Chinese taste for
bird's-nest for soup is gaining headway in England. Then
too. there is an interesting display of Indian dainties to be
had curries, Bornaboe fish in tins and the Burmese con
diments called Balchaung, which is made from shrimps.
A KANSAN ON IMMORTALITY.
William Allen White perpetrates a secular preachment
on life and death and immortality which embodies some
thing of both philosophy and logic and of common sense,
of human experience and perception. The peroration of
the sermon follows:
"When a human being has once existed, has drawn
from inanimate nature the forces that make a living soul
and has organized those forces into a being, a thing is
created of imperishable stuff. It has no known ingre-
dients; it cannot resolve itself into any material sub
stance or substances. It has comprehension of all the
great truths of the universe and is part of them. It is an
immortal thing. And just so much of a man is immortal
and imperishable as there is good in nim. The bad in a
man, is physical; is a thing of flesh and blood; lust, hate,
greed, deceit, have their springs in physical conditions of
the human body. Often in human characters these phy
sical defects dominate the personality, so that the soul is
crowded low into the sub-consciousness. Savages and
criminals and vicious men, rich and poor, are thus. But
when a man really lives, and lets his soul expand, blot
ting out wickedness, which is a form of physical evil or
illness, that man's soul grows big, and when the body dies
the greater part of the personality lives."

THAT BIG HOME FOR VETERANS.
The veterans of the Soldiers' Home at Leavenworth,
says the Atchison Globe of Thursday, were paid $106,000
pension money yesterday and 238 left for their former
homes, their annual custom. More will go after Memorial
services Monday. They can take furloughs for as long a
time as desired and always are entitled to re-admission to
the Soldiers' Home. If absent any length of time they
lose their cot, and on return have to take chances of
sleeping in a basement or hallway if the barracks are
crowded. As a rule, about one-third of the inmates are
away on furlough in the summer months. The new bar
racks are nearly ready and next winter 300 more veterans
can be given accommodations. Those applying for mem
bership now are sure of admission. There are about a
hundred volunteer soldiers of the Spanish-American war
'inmates of the Soldiers' Home.
WHAT A JAP VICTORY MEANS.
The Boston Herald holds that t there cannot be the
least doubt that, if Japan succeeds in forcing Russia to
come to terms, every one of the hundred's of millions of

what the Japanese have done can conceivably he per
