Amenities of March Fourth
Minneapolis Journal: The-New
York World suggests that the pleas
ant relations existing between Presi
dent Taft and Governor Wilson are
a happy augury for the fourth of
next March. There will be, in its
opinion, no trouble about getting the
same carriage*to ride to the capitol.
Mr. Taft would be glad to ride
with Mr. Wilson, while it is doubt
ful whether he could be crowded into
an auto with the other candidate.
He would hardly enjoy a spin down
the avenue with the once "dear
But the World is mistaken in say
ing that John Quincy Adams was
the only president who refused to
welcome his successor. Andrew
Johnson did not ride with General
Grant in the spring of 1869. He
did not even go to the capitol, but
remained at the White House sign
ing papers almost up to the moment
when General Grant, having been
inaugurated was on his way to take
possesison of the executive mansion.
Then Johnson and several members
of his cabinet beat a precipitate re
treat, leaving the coast clear for
Some Big Road Figures.
Logan Waller Page, who is direc
tor of the office of public roads at
Washinton, is a practical road build
er and a goods roads enthusiast.
Not long ago the Pioneer printed a
series of articles by him upon the1
value to the community of adequate
road systems and the work being
accomplished under government aus
pices in educating the people to the
necessity of building well and per
manently. Though a government
official, he is no believer in national
road systems nor in the use of federal
money for road purposes in the
states. This, however, because the
cost is so enormous that the govern
ment could not meet it* though the
vast sums seem less when divided
up among counties and communities
Some of the figures Mr. Page gives
in an article in World's Work take
the breath away woth their tremen
dous aw-ay. He says he has met, in
his travels, people who seem to think
the government should build all of
the arterial roads and that all that
is necessary is for congress to vote
these roads into existence and the
work is done. They know nothing of
the cost and less of the revenue of
the nation. He floors them with these
The national revenue is annually
only about 600,000,000, and merely
to sprinkle with water our 2,250,000
miles of road for one summer season
would cost approximately $178,000,-
000 to construct this mileage prop
erly would require at least $22,500,-
000,000, and to maintain these roads
after construction would cost about
These appalling figures, however,
were unnecessary as proof that a
distribution of federal funds among
the states for road purposes is im
possible. The states, with their units
of cities and counties, must take care
of their own highway systems, and
must not be discouraged by the mil
lions and millions of cost which Mr.
Page flings about so freely.

Norman B. Mack, who is a politician
and who, therefore, never tells any
thing but the truth, relates this story
"On one of my trips to New York I
had to visit a bank that is not very
well known. I got mixed up, in my
sense of location, and finally I asked
a newsboy to direct me to the build
ing, telling him that I would give him
half a dollar for his services. He
agreed and led me to the bank, which
was only four doors away.
'That,' I remarked, as I gave him
the money, 'was half a dollar easily
'I know it,' he said, 'but, boss, you
must remember that bank directors

HER, IDEA OF HONOR.

"A woman of -this type was play

It matters not where you reside or what you want, the merchants below can get it for you at a price that
reliable and will give you the best value for your money.
I have received'
a letter from a
young lady, whov
asks me: "Is.
the old Pe-ru-na
ter than the re-1
cine has its
place. One is
adapted for one
er for another.
.Ka-tar-no Is a
for some condi-
.tions than the
8. B4iartaaa, M.D. revised Pe-ru-
na. On the
other hand, the revised Pe-ru-na
is a better remedy for some conditions
than Ka-tar-no. They are both in
tended as catarrh remedies. They have
both done a great work: in relieving
catarrh, chronic and acute. Many
hundreds of cases of chronic catarrh
have recovered while taking Ka-tar-no
and the same is true of the revised Pe
ru-na during the last six years since
There is a difference, however, in
the two remedies. Whenever catarrh
Is associated with constipation then
the revised Pe-rji-na is the best. In
deed, this is exactly why the revision
was made, to meet such cases. But
where no laxative is needed, where the
bowels are regular or inclined to be
loose, then the old Pe-ru-na (Ka-tar-
no) is the better remedy.
The revised Pe-ru-na is for sale at
all drug stores. Those wishing to ob
tain Ka-tar-no, address The Ka-tar-no
