T41E GREATEST XEWSrArW OS EARTH
WhUam Ewart Gladstone, the
greatest statesman of the nineteenth
century, has at last, at the ttfe of
84 years, yielded to the inevitable
and resigned the Pretaiership of Eng
land. Ae and its infirmities have
hurtle this step Necessary to the pro
longation of an honored and useful
life. He had fought harder in the
last few years than during the prime
of manhood to reform the laws of his
country, but the inert weight of the
House of Lords was too much for the
Jieroic struggles of even a Gladstone,
and for a few more decades the im
beciles who pretend to rule England
will stick, like the barnacles they
are, to the Ship of State. But in
retiring the "Grand Old Man"' fore
cast their destruction as a factor in
legislation, and hcn, in the fullness
of time, England becomes a republic,
her people will wonder how they en
dured so long the incubus of heridi
tary legislation. The Queen offered
Mr. Gladstone a peerage. He de
clined it, of course. No bauble title
could add lustre to the career of a
man who has done more for his coun
try by peaceful methods than a score
of Bismarcks with their needle guns.
We hope Mr. Gladstone will live long
enough to see the reforms lie strove
for carried out or. at least, assured.
A life free from the worry and ex
citement of politics may lengthen
Jiis already long life. Such Is the
prayer of every friend of freegovern
ment The County Central Committee
meets next Monday, and with them
lies the setting of a date for the pri
mary election. The common sense
of the matter points to such action
as will give all the voters a chance
to vote without the sacrifice of time
at a busy season. To do as Missis
sippi county has done and make the
primary La April would be to inter
fere with the making of a crop. To
set it for July would be to catch our
farmers at their busiest, threshing
wheat. Both of these difficulties can
be obviated by setting the primary
in the middle of August, by which
time the farmers will be at leisure.
This is distinct icely a farmers' coun
ty, and they are the raea whose con
venience should be paramount. We
can conceive of no valid argument on
the other side of this question.
The Carnegie Company has struck
a snag. Heretofore, when they fur

The Company appealed to the Pres

The Laird of Cluny Castle can't mon

rather goslings, who hissed, but that
sort of expression of dissont is a dis
grace to our Congressional halls. A
street hoodlum Tery naturally em
ploys that line of argument not
knowing any better but it is pitiful
to see it introduced among oar legis
lators. The idea of Frank Mitchim tailing
the place vacated by Col. Kennedy on
the Springfield Leader is deliciosly
absurd. Kennedy is one of the best
writers in the State and it is doubt

Why Women Should Not Vote
Written by W. P. Howie for the benefit of Cie
In the first place they cannot af
ford to for the following reasons:
W oman has other r.nd more sacred,
work to do. She has her home inter-1
ests to look titer. She has ToVk so
sacred that she will n(5t trust it to
othci-s. She, as a rule, has a home,
husband and children whose happi
ness is dependent upon her presence
and constant attention. Her home,
husband and babes are her treasures
and where her treasures are, there
her heart is also. She would not
part with these for any considera
tion, cine has no desire to give up
peace, joy and happiness for the priv
ilege of voting. Give her a home
such as the average wife has these
days and protect her from the abuses
incident to a political life. Who is
it that clamors most for Woman
Sufferage? What class of women is
it that is making this demand? Some
of them are doubtless intellectual,
some of them educated and refined,
but the majority of tltcja have no
love for the home circle. They con
sider a home, husband and children a
nuisance. They believe women who
stay at home and love their husbands
ami babies are weak minded. These
women would be willing to sacrifice
home and home influence for the
privilege of traveling around and
showing how smart they are. Which
one of my opponents would be wil
ling to marry one of these women.
What pleasure could a woman like
this afford her husband? Suppose for
instance my wife was one of these
instead of the pleasant companion
she now is. Suppose when I leave
here I go home and instead of meet
ing my good old wife who greets me
with a kiss and asks after my wel
fare I meet the what? What will I
meet? Can anybody tell? It may
be. we will say. a hired man. I ask
where is my wife. He ansuers, 'she
went to Benton this evening. " What
for? Well there was a political
meeting over there and she went
over to make a speech on the tariff
question. When is she coming home.
1 don't know, she spoke of going to
the Cape but did not say when she
would come home. Well", what is the
prospect of lodging? Is there a bed
in which I can sleep to-night? ITo
sir, she locUetl up all the rooms ex
cept this and asked me to stay until
you came and to tell you t go to the
hotel and stay until she returned.
Where are my children? I don't
know, sir. Have the cow and the
horse been fed? I can not tell you.
And you do not know where the boys
are? No sir. Now here is a nice
old time for me. No wife, no child
ren, my house locked against me.
Now does any sensible man want to
exchange a good wife for a woman
who would treat him in this style.
But some of my opponents will
say: Look how selhsh he is. iie is
thinking aoout himseii altogether.
How abuut the wife who has gone off
on a lecturing tour? Is she not hav
mg a good time.' Is sue not an
right? Yes, she is all right, pro
vided, she has ceased to care for her
husband, home and children, and
cares for no one except herself. Now
a tew words about my home, under
the present circumstances. I am
willing to work night and day to
keep a shelter over my wife and will
do all I can to protect her and pro
vide for her, but if I had a wife who
would prefer the lecture field to my
fireside; who would refuse to take
care of my earnings and one who had
as soon talk to hoodlums as me; one
who by her acts would show that she (
did not care for home and its sacred
surroundings I could not love her. I
could not and would not work for her.
She would not care for me, our inter
ests would not be the same and our
home with all home implies would
be destroyed. Do the women of this
country Want to destroy tho home
life? Can they afford such a disas
ter? I say no. I am satisfied that
every lady has a sacred love for her
home, and she would not part with
the influences of home for any con
sideration, and when she sees that
any calling would have a tendency to
destroy her happiness she does not
want to engage in it. i have shown
that the true husband and wile bare
the same interest. They marry with
the intention of having a home to
themselves where they can enjoy
themselves without molestation. But
oneelhis Interest is not the same it
is sure to end in misery. A house or
borne devided agaimst itself is bound
to falL Politics is degrading. It
contaminates all who engage in it.
Social law protects man to some ex
tent when engaged in a political con
test. A man may mix with hood
lums and come out without total de
struction ot bis character but not so
with womar. Once she m ingles with
the Vicious her character is gone for
ever. Woman suffrage would tarn
all classes of women loose, the bad
with the good. Evil associations Air

too. Woman's highest motive should
be self respect, next she must have
the respect of mankind. 1 iook at
the woman who has lost self respect,
look at the woman that men refuse
to respect. Would my opponents in
agurate a scheme to destroy home
lite that would make women lose self
respect, and last but not least, would
they have woman on the same plane
as man. Suppose men had no more
respect for women than they do for
men, would the morals and prosperi
ty of this town be improved. You
see men cursing each other, beating
each other and men hiss them on.
Suppose some man would undertako
to beat some of these ladies, would he
be encouraged in it? No. but would
soon be put where he could not injure
them. Why is this so? It is because
men respect women,' because they
love them and want to protect them.
But open up the ballot box and let a
lot of drunken degraded city women
crowd up to the polls whooping and
hallooing like drunken men do and
some of them would soon have a sore
head. Why? Because men do not
respect drunken women. Our oppon
ents seem to thuuc that only gooa
women will vote. This is a sad mis
take. The most deffraded man is
anxious to vote so the most degraded j
woman would vote, ana tne aegraaea
women if they did not outnumber
the good ones at first, would soon
outnumber them because they
would all become degraded by this
step. Good women don't want to
vote, good women cannot afford it
and they would not assist in tho de
gradation of their fallen sisters.
Vhen women cease to be moral and
refuse to teach morality by both pre
cept and practice then the human
family is gone world without end,

More than fifty years ago J. A.
Pashall went to work as a composi
tor in the office of the Deilhi,(N. Y.)
Gazette, He is setting type to-day
in the same office, which is in the
same building it was when Parshall
went to work there. For fifty-two
years he has worked at the same
case, which has stood at the same
window where it was placed more
than half a century ago. In all that
time Parshall has been awy from
his work but two weeks. In Febru
1S39, he set up the wedding notice of
tuo man who put up the Gazette in
1837. In February, 1889, he wrote
and set un a notice of the same
man's golden wedding. In May, 1891,
he wrote and set up an obituary no
tice of this man's wife. In October,
1893, he wrote and set up the obitu
ary notice of this man himself. Par

the United btates wno has a record
of such Ions and continuous service
in one office. Exchange
At the recent meeting of the Mis
souri Press Association in St. Louis
a resolution was adopted that obitu
aries, resolutions of condolence, lists
of wedding presents and announce'

money, should be charged lor at reg
ular advertising rates, and that
cards of thanks to friends and neigh

vices in case of sickness or death
were in bad taste and should not be
