Does Christmas mean the same
thing to the tired, over-worked shop
girl, the messenger boy and the mail
carrier as it does to us? To us,
Christmas is a time when we ex
change gifts, a time of home-coming,
a reunion of the dear ones. Does it
mean this to the other olass? In
gladdening the hearts of others by
our gifts and deeds of kindness are
we forgetting that class of people to
which Christmas should mean more?
Perhaps most of us are not able
to come In personal contact with
these deserving bread-earners. But
we can help. It is such a little thing
to do and we can not realize what a
kindness we are rendering. Let us
make up our minds this year to buy
our Christmas goods early. Begin
now. A little shopping now and then
will not only lighten the burden of
those who stand behind the counters,
but the leisurely purchasing of pres
ents becomes a pleasure and not a
task to be dreaded. Early Christmas
shopping lessens the strain and grind
that makes Christmas a "dread to
those working In large stores.
THE KATY SLEEPER
The Katy sleeper to St,-Louis is
probably, Columbia's best railroad ac
commodation. Unfortunately the
Athens of Missouri is not on a main
line of some railroad. Long waits
and transfers always come to the
traveler through Columbia.
But the sleeper is a through car to
St. Louis. One may go to bed at 9:30
o'clock at night, and when morning
comes he is in St. Louis. The trip
can be made while you get a good
The Missouri, Kansas and Texas
Railroad cannot furnish this service
unless it Is better patronized by the
citizens of Columbia. The car has
been taken off for a few months and
then put back for another trial. This
time seems to be the last chance the
company intends to give Columbia.
The officials say that the car will be
kept long enough to insure a fair test.

OUR CONDUCT AT LAWRENCE.
The annual Missouri-Kansas game
brings the students of the University
before the people of Missouri, Kansas
and surrounding states. Those who
go fo Lawrence to see the game will
note the conduct of the students from
the "show me" state. Those who stay
at home and read the newspapers to
find the result of the game will also
look to see how the students con
There are people in the state who
think the University Is made up of
"rah-rah" boys and "campus
queens". Such people, who are skep
tical concerning the University as an
educational center, are eager to take
up any little thing that one student
may do and hold that as common to
the entire student body. They speak
only of the "rough things" that occur
and never mention the good things.
'it is, then, the duty of each indi
vidual to uphold the conduct of the
University and behave in such a way
that outsiders will have no cause to
talk. A good impression made by our
actions at Lawrence will go far
toward giving non-residents a better
impression of the University. Many
people judge a neighboring state by
Truly, when victory comes, students
are expected to celebrate. They
should do It But there are two ways
of celebrating good and bad.
At Lawrence, Missouri rooters will
celebrate, but it will be in the good
way. Missouri will be known as a
school that knows how to celebrate
in the right way as well as a school
that plays clean athleUcs.
Echoes of Yesterday.
Fire Years Ago.
The carrying of mail on the Ash
land hack line was discontinued. The
Statesman In an editorial said that
it would gladly join in a demand that
the old order of things be re-established,
as Ashland was one of the
most important business communities
in Boone County.
A Cowherd-for-Governor Students'
Democratic Club was organized at
the courthouse. Floyd E. Jacobs of
Kansas City was president

At the City Council meeting the
street commissioner was ordered to
advertise for bids for the construc

north side of Rollins street.
Twenty Years Ago.
James Wilson of the firm of Bed
ford and Wilson of Columbia was
awarded a patent upon a heating
stove he has invented. The patented
feature was an arrangement giving a
draft from tHe top of the stove, some
thing after the order of a black
smith's forge. Mr. Wilson had manu
factured in Columbia a number of
these stoves and those in use gave
Thirty Years Ago.
The Columbia Herald said: "Our
picture gallery is not quite complete,
but we have secured the likenesses of
two of Columbia's most handsome as
well as most enterprising men. They
are on this page and they speak for
themselves, both in the paper and in
their lively grocery store."
Forty Years Ago.
"We announce with pleasure the
completion of the Statesman Block, a
fine brick building on the corner of
Broadway and Ninth streets in this
place, the site of the old Statesman
printing office. The building Is of
brick, two stories high, covered with
tin and fireproof, with nine feet base
ment under the entire bullidng, and
presents a magnificent appearance, it
being located on one of the most
sightly and eligible corners of our
beautiful town." Columbia States

The University of Kansas "for the
second time in its history has a girl
enrolled in its engineering depart
ment. A board of control for student pub
lications will probably be elected at
the University of Wisconsin. The ef

be to unify by definite organization
and common administration as far as
Tailors to men-

tailor-made suits haven't yet
tried wearing an Overcoat that
is tailored to them they can't
quite see the advantage of hav

coat for just one individual.
But here is one distinct ad
vantage in the
overcoats. One young man
who always wears Fashion
Shop Tailored Suits had us
make an overcoat for him
three years ago. He has worn
the coat every winter since,
and is now starting on the
fourth winter. And the looks

At the University of Texas a move
ment is on foot to provide a $100,000
loan fund for the use of young men
and women who wish to attend the
university but can not afford to do
so upon their own resources. The
money will be raised by popular sub
scription over the state.
According to figures compiled by a
member of the faculty at Cornell Uni
versity, the living expenses of under
graduates of Cornell have Increased
33 per cent since 1896.
For the first time in agricultural
history plowing of the soil was re
cently made an object of competition
for a prize at the University of Min
nesota. The senior agricultural stu
dents conducted a contest at a field
meet of the different classes, at which
the best handler of a plow received
a new $45 plowshare.
