GROUND FOB REVERSAIx.
If a young girl, enamored of the footlights, bo
so foolish as to seek preferment on the stage, and
be so utterly foolish as to fall, then docs It follow
that she shall be expelled from school? The Maple
wood School Board has -wrestled with the problem
anil has declared a precedent which la that said
young girl, having essayed said career and having
suffered said failure, shall not be permitted to at
tend said school.
Mr. 'Worldly Wiseman's paternal and disinter
ested advice to the very young who contemplate
the "boards" as a livelihood Is merely, "Don't." It
Is unfortunately true, considering the number that
fall by the wayside fortunately true for the cause
of the art that this does not settle the matter. In
fact, when this "don't" Is cast in the face of the as
pirant, he or she usually retorts with the tremen
dous but misapplied "I will."
Say what we may, they Insist on risking It When
they fall, of course they have made a great mistake
and all that: though. If their friends one day see
their names splattered all over the billboards well,
that is another story.
The young girl In this particular cayp or girls
there were two left home and parents, went to Chi
cago, and there for three weeks In vain besieged
hard-hearted managers. The Inevitable happened;
they ran out of money, and had to come home. They
had erred, grievously erred, but It seemed that the
only eours- open was to "learn better."
Hut the members of the School Board closed to
litem the Institution In which their young minds
could have be a directed to higher things and more
si-usible ambilioDS. "Xay. remain condemned In
your Ignorance." was in effect the verdict of the
Fr-hool directors. This certainly is not In accord with
logic or law. These girls are entitled to an appeal.
Clearly, if not under the statutes, then tinder English
intimou or lEomau law, or by virtue of the Yedas
or Analects, or lu simple common s-en-e. some logical
ground exists for overruling this School Board.
IMPROVING THE RACE.
Chicago University quarrels with Mr. Roosevelt
on the question of race suicide. Professor Jackman
tiiti-riug the belief that we as a race have evoluted
through and beyond tho etage of the rabbit and the
rat. vihich seems to Imply that we are susceptible
of improvement by a process of upbreedlng.
We know that the rat is hopeless. You may cut
off lti tail and instruct him in the art of walking on
hi-li' 1 legs, but his children will be Just ordinary
lax, and It doesn't matter how many generations
joit work upon you may keep it up ad lib. It is
difficult to grasp the precise suggestion of the Pro
fessor's remark. Probably he has yome subtle bio-logii-al
proposition in mind perhaps he means to
hint that future generations of Americans may be
bred up to have hooks on tho shoulders like a bat,
that we may suspend ourselves easily upou the
rtnips in trolley cars. Doubtless a good deal might
lie done toward developing the human anatomy
along utilitarian lines.
However, the main point of the Professor's re
marks is that there are too many of us now and
that what we need in future is quality and not
quantity, lie relates the ancient fable of the owl
which upbraided the eagle for having only two
young ones, while she herself had four. "Yes," re
plied the eagle, "but rnlno are eagles." "We need
eagles." says the Professor.
It Is a curious coincidence that at the same mo
ment Professor Jackman was uttering these hereti
cal beliefs a New York philosopher was advocating
the painless killing of incurables as a step forward
In civilization. He admitted that there were some
practical difficulties In the way of applying this doc
trine. It will be seen that the New York and Chicago
philosophers supplement each other: breed up only
govd ones and kill off the existing bad ones, and
y6ii'll Improve the quality.
lint Mr. Roosevelt has the better Bide of the argu
ment, from the standpoint of the practical politician.
The big family, with kind treatment of the sick and
malformed that Is the wholesome and Christian
idea, and moreover It appeals to the great producing
Not through lack of Interest but through a con
fusion about what was a desirable form of gift, the
Slate of Missouri has done nothing toward placing
a testimonial on board the magnificent battleship
which has just astonished the world with an unex
ampled speed trial. The -Missouri Is the fastest nnrt
finest of our battleships. She is about to go into
regular commission. A fund must be raised for a
suitable testimonial. The Republic subscribes $100
and calls for contributions from public-spirited citi
zens of the State.
Just at the time when the MIsMjurian, and es
pecially the MIssourlan of the country, ought to re
ctdic the utmost encouragement to a lively interest
and participation in the affairs of his Slate he Is
subjected to the bitterest disparagement and most
vicious attacks of a perverted Journalism which
goes to any lengths in a frenzy of partisanship.
ot content with aspersing the public concerns
of the Misoouriiiii, this partisan journalism has re
cently devoted its energies to assailing his proiK-rty.
his farm lands: contending that a panic and demoral
ization In prices existed, and that Missourlaus were
forsaking their homes and moving out of the State.
Just what real damage to the farmer this plan or
misrepresentation catiwil is linpo-iilble to ascertain,
but that It affected Hie reputation of the State aud
Injured the value of property to tomu extent Is
Ha.Iug thus attacked him in his property rights,
as a landholder and farmer, tills journalism next
addressed Itself to the Jlissouriau personally: and
for some time a regular scries of t-lamlers have been
aimed at nothing less than the rrivate character of
the Missourian. Indiscriminately a great body of
Missouri's agricultural population have been slan
dered as men, as to their personal attributes and as
It was Cato who truly aid that the agricultural
population produces the bravest men, the most
valiant soldiers and most useful citizens; and the
statement was never truer than as applied to the
men of Missouri who till the laud ami sow the see-!
and garner the grain. At his best the Missouri
farmer is God's nobleman and at his worst he Is no
worse than other men.
And that he is a Democrat Is matter of just pride
with the Missourian who lias helped to make the
thirty years' record of consistent and honorable
Democracy In his State. He can look acrcss the
border east, north and west Into the domain of the
Republican host and find in the comparison much
that Is satisfying, nothing that is discreditable to
him as a voter, a citizen, a farmer, or as a man.
But if the Missouri Democrat flnds no cause for
shame In a contrast with his Republican brothers
elsewhere, certainly he suffers nothing by compari
son with the Republican standards which obtain In
his own State, as exemplified by the active political
clement. He may glance about blm and find every
Incentive to continue In his 'Democracy. If one
would seek the cause for what Is maligned as ".Mis
souri Bourbonlsm" he need look no further than to
the mere office mongers and job holders, denounced
even by the bigot journals In lucid intervals, who
tend to make the Republican machine lu Missouri
a synonym for all that is forbidden and repeilant In
politics. Assuredly Missouri's more intelligent
citizenship will not cease to vote 'er straight as
against this grade of politics.
Indeed, there Is much reason to believe that the
Missouri Democrat possesses the confidence, and
more especially at this time the sympathy, of his
brother RepuDticans in the State; and there is a
large probability that the better class of Missouri
Republicans will co-operate with the staid "Bour
bons" to vote 'er straight against the very political
element which the organs seem to repn-sent.
But for the "Bourlwn" Missouri would le In a
bad way. But for the "Eourlon" we should have
nan a Legislature wnony given over to boodle, a
corrupt majority, instead of a Republican minority,
to Itetray the people to a lobby. But for the St.
Loute "Bourbon" wo should In all probability be
still In the meshes of municipal corruption. It Is
the sort of "Bourbon" whom the bigots lainler
who has guarded and defended Mlxsoiiri and Its
cities in the past and who will wholly redeem the
State in future from the evil Influences which are
nowhere better represented than by the slanderous
journalism. Inimical to progress and reform. Alt
honor to this sort of Bourbonlsm.
THE GARBAGE PROBLEM.
Having Investigated the collection and diiosal
of garbage lu several of the large cities of the
United States and Canada, the special commission is
prepared to arrive at eoncluslous reganling local
conditions. The Investigation has no doubt con
vinced the members of the commission that St.
Louis Is not only paying too much for the collection
and reduction of garbage, but also that satisfactory
results cannot be obtained by an economic policy
without a complete system arranged on a scientific
There are two processes for the disposal of gar
bagereduction and Incineration, or utilization anil
destruction. The respective merits of each the com
mission understands. Each lias Its advantages and
disadvantages. Incineration is the wasteful and ex
pensive process. Reduction is the utilization of the
by-products of offal. By the former process all
waste and garbage is destroyed; by the latter rev
enue is derived from useful waste and from the by
products of offal.
Studying the subject iu the light of experiments
and experiences. It Mould seem that Hie best plau
for the disposal of garbage should include both
processes. Waste which has value should not lie
burned. Garbage which contains marketable In
gredients should not be completely destroyed. Of
fensive, useless offal must be disiosed of altogether.
The rational inference Is that the waste and gar
bage which have value should be utilized to over
come part of the expense incurred In incinerating
offal proper. This system, which embraces both
processes, is the economic and scientific method for
disposing of waste and garbage.
The next question is whether the municipality
could oierate reduction and incinerating plants to
advantage and whether it could sell the waste and
by-products at profit. Of course, if the city-should
deal In fertilizers, oils, lubricants and wastes, there
would be opportunity for grafting. 1'urthermore,
tho management of a utilization plant would de
mand scientific skill. Could the city engage suc
cessfully in a business of this kind?
If the city could do so, or if there is plausible in
dication that it could, then the city should own and
operate both Incineration and reduction plants. If,
on tho other hand. It bo evident that the city could
not guard against the temptations for grafting and
the chances of mismanagement, a plan similar to
most worthy of adoption. That is, the city should
sell the waste and the cseful garbage to the highest
bidder or bidders and provide for the sanitary dis
posal of useless offal.
It would be far more satisfactory and popular,
however, should some plan be devised for the utili
zation of garbage and waste solely under municipal
suiervIsIou. Should the sale of garbage aud waste
be tried. It might be necessary, lu order to get com
petition and low bids, to make long-term contracts.
Consequently, It Is questionable whether the risk of
grafting and mismanagement might not be prefer
able to long-term contracts. Nevertheless. It is cer
tain that, no matter what may be done. Mayor Wells
will not tolerate coercion against the city. Rather
than have a repetition of former experiences for the
city he would get rid of the garbage by a primitive
and unscientific method.
The great difficulty about the problem of dispos
ing of garbago and wasto is the associated problem
of the collection and hauling of garbage. The prob
lem of collecting and hauling garbage must be con
sidered In connection with the disposal problem. and
It is to Important as to deserve special reference
As for the disposal of garbage. It seems manifest
that, from every standpoint, the city should arrange
for the utilization of by-products and waste. In
cineration alone would not do, unless necessitated.
The commission should endeavor to originate a prac
tical plan of utilization In a municipal garbage-disposal
plant. Under any and all circumstances, the
city should get whatever value there may In? In
waste aud offal, for the utilization of vtaste aud by
products will reduce the general expense.
There was a fly in the ointment of the Moberly
meeting a week ago and It has caused some conten
tion. Of course. If Mr. Kelly, convicted boodler. Just
crept Into the Moberly procession unnoticed and tt
must be conceded that the unctuous and oleous gen
tleman has a wormy propensity against which no
procession would lie absolutely Immune then no
significance attaches to the fact.
Not Infrequently it happens that pcrsonac non
gratae affect the company of the elect aud, bo long
as the elect are unconscious of their presence and
participation, no especial discredit Is reflected. Tol
eration of the unfortunate presence cannot be fairly
Imputed until knowledge is bovn.
Certainly it Is unfortunate that some vigilant
eye did not detect the handsome figure of the doubt
fid patriot in Saturday's procession, and it is also un
fortunate that he was permitted later. In a place
where spirituous beverages are dispensed, to deliver
an harangue against reform and reformers.
As a political asset the valuelessness of Kelly is
and cannot but be recognized by every element In
the party. Democrats of the li'gh grade deplore the
circumstance of his attendance upon grounds of
decency and good morals; while to the merest .o
called oitIcian It mut be regrettable on grounds
of expediency. If no other.
The truth Is that there Is no logical place for
Kelly except in that limited Republican fold which
fosters the aspirations of Kratz and his confreres.
That Kelly can have no part In a Democratic meet
ing at this time and that his presence Is that of an
enemy and traitor appears from a consideration of
the deeper motives which hold dominion over De
mocracymotives directly inimical to Kelly and his
kind. Eventually Kelly will be found arrayed
against his party, when his party shall have com
pletely embodied and revealed Its purpose as the
party of good goveniment-
According to the Glole the Republican who sup
ports a Democratic reform is Insane. Does the
Globe wish to aiologlze for Its recent support or
I'olk on the ground of insanity?
A very fine stethoscope would not be needed to
hear Kratz's heart beat upon his return to St. Louis.
The circum'tances will be exciting for the wanderer.

James Shirley nas born In London September IS. IHi; died there Oeteeer 3, KSo. He was
tducaled at Oxfo-d and Cambridge, was ordained, gavi up bU living, uught school and
wrote about forty plays. The Wlowlrg are bis most famous lines, and It has been said that
OlUer Cromwell trembled nben he read them.
Hi: glories of our blood and state
Are shadows, not substantial things;
There ls.no armor against fate;
Death lays his Icy hand on Kings:
Scepter and crown
Must tumble down.
And In the dust be equal made
With the poor crooked scythe and spade.
Some men with swords may reap tho
And plant fresh laurels where they kill;
But their strcng nerves at last must
They tame but one another still:
Karly or late
They stoop to fate.
And must give up thtlr murmuring
When they, pale captives, creep to death.
Tho garlands wither on your brow;
Then boast no more your mighty deeds!
Upon death's pcrple altar now
See, where tho victor-victim bleeds:
Your heads must coma
To the cold tomb:
Only the actions of the Just
Smell sweet and blossom In their dusL
