"FOLK'S LID 0. K."
SAYS MB, WHITE
Kansas Editor Found Germans
Drinking Ginger Ale-
SW York Sun SpeoUl Serrioe.
St. Louis, Aug. 30.William Allen
White, the Kansas editor and author,
after spending twenty-four hours in
St. Louis, vainly trving to find a hole in
Governor Folk's Sunday "lid," ad
mitted that it was, as Colonel Ed But
ler declared it to be to him at Manitou,
Col., a few days ago. "iron clad, besse
mer steel, copper-riveted."
The Kansas man came here with the
avowed intention of making holes in
the "lid" and then writing articles.
He described his failure to make holes in
a characteristic manner.
"This afternoon," he said, I went
out to Lemps park and there I saw
about five hundred Germans complacent
ly drinkingginger ale. Think of that
It almost killed me. They were listen
ing to real German music played by a
real German band fresh from the fath
erland, and they were drinking ginger
ale, like they liked it. Whv, say, it
almost killed me. I never thought I'd
see the day.
There was some stuff in bottles that
they called ISloiulike fizz. 'Here's
tvhere I poke the finger of scorn at
Governor Folk,' said to myself. This
is the hole in the lid, this must be beer
under an alias.' I ordered two bottles
of it and when the waiter opened one
it foamed and flzzeled like the real
thing. I laughed inwardly. 'So the
lid is just a paper one, nust as I
thought,' meditated I, and drained a
glass of the fizz. But I had to take a
dunk of coffee to get that 'morning
alter' taste out of mv mind. I was mis
taken. It was not beer under an alias.
I don't know what it was. How the
turdy Germans could drink it I don't
know. There they sat listening to the
band and the band had. three kettle
drums. When a German listens to three
kettledrums for a while he wants a

Census Chief Says They Are -to Blame
for Race Suicide.
New York Sun Special Service.
Boston, Aug. 30.The race suicide
question has been officially taken up
in the state of Massachusetts by
Charles Felton Pidgin, in charge of the
state census now in progress. Mr. Pid
gin has an idea that the fact that the
Eopulation does not mciease is to be
lamed more upon men who refuse to
wed than upon small families.
Chief Pidgin believes that children
are born to women about one in three
yeais on the average and he says that
if his enumeration shows this he will
have proved that there is no suph
thing as race suicide on the part of
the married, but that it is the unmar
ried who are to be blamed.

Hay Fever, Catarrh and Asthma.
New York, Aug. 3.Evidence of
the wonderful merit of the Austrian
drug ascatco in preventing hay fever
attacks continues to pour in from all

symptoms of this disease are instantly
checked by the use of ascatco and
subsequent attacks are avoided if the
treatment is continued until frost.
Its results in catarrh, as.thma and
bronchitis are marvelous. The Aus
trian dispensary, 32 West Twenty-fifth
street, New York city, will furnish a
trial treatment of ascatco to all who
write for it. The dose is small, pleas
ant to take, and the remedy carries the
indorsement of the medical profession.
