After all, the feature of the cam
paign was reserved to the last. It
was the effort of John D. Rockefeller
to ally himself with one of the great
parties, and the indignant denial of
both parties of a refuge to the rich
est man in the world.
This is Interesting and somewhat
amusing. But what sensation must
it give Mr. Rockefeller! Here is the
richest man in the world, the man
who has given more millions to edu
cation than any one else on earth
the man vrho supports foreign mis
sions, home missions and important
benevolent enterprises. Yet Mr.
Rockefeller, the richest man in the
world today, cannot announce how
he is going to vote without causing
consternation in two great parties.
It is sad, but true, that neither
party can afford the luxury of Mr.
Rockefellers support. He is a poli
cal pariah. His money has made him
suspected. The letters of Archbold
have put the capstone upon the
monument to unpopularity and dis
trust which the Standard Oil com
pany has been raising.Minneapolis

Carrying water on both shoulders
is about as ticklish a proposition as
carrying a chip on one.
Some men are so wearisome in
insisting that they accept every man
as a brother that very few acknow
ledge the kinship.
If you want to startle a man,
take him to one side and ask him
suddenly but earnestly: "Why do
you wear your whiskers that way?"
You will notice that when a man
backslides he gauges his slide so
that he can bump into a crowd
when he begins to shoot repent
Get a man to tell you what a hard
time he had when he was young
and he will go around talking about
what an entertaining conversation
alist you are.
The trouble about changes in
women's fashions is that about the
time you manage to think one
fashion is pretty it is changed to
one that is worse than ever.

months. The court will set the date

The confession of Mrs. Hains was
short. It was made on May 30. It is

ment, says that one month after the

to Annis. That she was successful is
told in the remainder of the confes
