After all it seems to be better
to be an aristocratic thief than an
ordinary one. The St. Louis
"Boodlers," who perhaps have
beaten the people of St. Louis out
of half a million dollars were
given a sumptuous turkey dinner
in jail last Sunday. While the
fellow who stole a second handed
over-coat was not permitted to
smell the good things to eat.
The Teacher's Institute law as
it now exists, is a complete hold
up for colored teachers. And it
would be better for them if there
was no Institute law. Ilere is an
example: Two teachers attended
the teachers Institutes in Cooper
and Chariton counties, respective
ly, and afterwards took the
examinations of the county boards
in these same counties, where they
had attended the Institutes, passed
satisfactory examinations, paid
Institutes, and county-board fees
in these counties and were given
certificates. They were elected to
teach in Cole county, and when
they went to take charge of their
work, they were held up by the
Cole county board and compelled
to pay $3 each before they were
permitted to teach. Making their
total amount of fees $6.50, besides
railroad fare, two weeks board
and time to secure a certificate.
Why suoh high-way robbery is
made to confront colored teachers,
we are unable to explain, unless
the county boards simply take the
advantage of a "good thing"
brought about by a rotten legisla
tive enactment. The legislature
made no provision for the pay
ment of colored Institute con
ductors, except they are to collect
$2 Institute fee from every
teacher who attends his Institute.
And here comes another hold up.
Teachers who are holding life
certificates already in force are
demanded to pay the two dollars
Institute fee, which is not accord
ing to law. If teachers are to pay
$0.50 for a certificate, which per
mits them to teach a $20 school it
would be far better that there
were no colored teachers Institute
law, and that they were permitted
to go before the county commis
sioner and be examined as was the
law years ago.

Prom the New York Times,
Just how to pronounce the name
of our President is a matter that
puzzles a great many people. His
name has given rise to a greater
variety of pronunciation than that
of any statesman who has ever
occupied the front rank.
The English people shied a
"D'Israeli" when they first saw it
in print, and Americans when they
first saw 'Thiers" were given
pauso. Bonaparte changed the
spelling of his name, and there
some purists who excite amusement
j by still spelling it "Buonaparte''
and pronouncing it accordingly.
But fot a man of world wide
fame, as the President of the
United States must necessarily be
in these days, there has never be
fore been a case like that of
"Roosevelt" to puzzle mankind.
Even "Goethe" and "Pepys"
were not so mystifying.
Elsewhere than in New York
aud in Holland and South Africa,
where Dutch names are common,
the greatest variations of the Pres
ident's name are to be met with.
People in England are at sea about
it. On the continent almost every
man has his own opinion on the
subject. Here are a few of the
A few million people in Eng
land think the President is a Boer.
Others say: "There's another
one of those queer American
names." In Germany people be
lieve him to be a Jew descended
from one of those families which
took their names from objects in
nature, such as "Rosendale" and
"Rosenstein." Many Frenchmen
think he is a German, especially
since he talked fluently in that
language with Prince Henry, but
spoke with Count Rochambeau in
language which one of the French
delegates described as "bizarre."

A recent writer asks : "Would
you advise a young man with $5,-
000 capital, intending to become a
business man, to spend that sum
first on a college education !" Cer
tainly not. Let him work in vaca
tion and use only the interest of
5,000, and he will have both his
education and his principal when
he gets through. Because some
foolish parents spend a sum like
this each year on an effeminate or
luxurous boy does not concern him.
He can get a better education in
the same college by his unaided ef
forts. If our colleges insist that
their students must get down to
work or go home, we should hear
less of lavish expenditue or of the
complaint that colleges are for rich
men onlv. It is the college where
the students are poor that will
Borne day have the rich alumni.

The readers of this paper will be
pleased to learn that there is at least
one dreaded disease that science
has been able to cure in all its
stages and that is Catarrh.
Hall's Catarrh Cure is the only
positive cure now known to the
medical fraternity. Catarrh being
a constitutional disease, requires
a constitutional treatment. Hall's
Catarrh Cure is taken inter
nally, acting directly upon the
blood and mucous surfaces of the
system, thereby destroying the
foundation of the disease and giv
ing the patient strength by build
ing up the constitution and assist
ing nature in doing its work. The
proprietors have so much faith in
its curative powers, that they offer
one Hundred Dollars ror any case
that it fails to cure. Seud for list

Iiev. A. A. Adams, Pastor,
I have experienced a wonderful
result in using Ripans Tabules. I
was seriously affected with indi
gestion and heartburn. A friend
suggested trying Ripans, and I was
surprised at the improvement. On
making application a few years
ago for policy of insurance, I was
refused on account of a weak heart,
but the same company passed me
recently, and I give Ripans Tabules
credit for the health I am enjoy
ing. I can certainly recommend
them to anyone suffering with pal
pitation of the heart or indigestion.
The five-cent package is enough
for an ordinary occasion. The
family bottle, sixty cents, contains
a supply for a year.
