Some people think that when
they pay or even promise to pay
subscription to a newspaper, they
are expected to help run it. They
want their names to appear in
every issue, and nothing good is to
be said of any oue they don't like ;
and if their friends do any thing
wrong, even though it be the talk
of the town, the newspaper must
not mention it. In fact, they think

Much is being said about Miss
Rossevelt's snubbing one Harry
Lehr in a New York theatre. It
is, however, no credit to Miss
Roosevelt to have the report circu
lated that she treated any one with
disrespect. Turning her back on
a gentleman who is treating her
with the greatest of respect, is un
becoming any lady of refinement,
and Miss Roosevelt should be no
more exempt from the laws of
etiquette than any one else. There
is no doubt but that Miss Roose
velt could have gotten rid of this
young man and at the same time
not encroached npon her dignity.

The Preacher and His Sermon
By REV. LATHAN
Formerly Pastor of John D. Rockefeller's Church,
TARS, flowers, pictures and rhetorical flights do not
constitute a sermon. The preacher should always make
a point that will not require a microscope to find, or a
flaring label to identify or understand. A preacher
should always aim to say something when he under
take to preach.
Sermons ought to have clearly defined division?.
Some people have horror of sermonic bones. They shy
at the firstly, secondly and thirdly. They tell us they do not want
to see the frame of the sermon. As between A SKELETON AND A
BAG OF JELLY WITH THE BAG LEFT OFF, I PREFER THE
I do not know of any valid reason why a preacher SHOULD AL
WAYS CHOOSE A TEXT. There are many themes for which it is
extremely difficult, if not impossible, to find a fitting passage to serve
as a text.
We hear much about "Preaching for the times." The exact mean
ing of this phrase is not always clear. Practically, however, the message
for the man of the twentieth century is in most respects like that which
was brought to the man of the first century. Human nature remains
about, the same in spite of the many changes the centuries bring about.
1'lie helpful message of to-day, as always, must be one which is distinct,
clear and full of hope,
Training in sermon writing and delivery is neglected in our theolog
ical seminaries. I am convinced that the attention given systematic
theology, church history and Old and New Testament exegesis is dis
proportionately large compared to the training given to men to present
the results of their study and prayer in such a way as to build up the
Kingdom of God.
The man who shuts himself up six days in the week with his books
and devotes himself to contemplation and hard thinking may produce
sermons admirable from the standpoint of scolarship, preparation and
wide reading, but such sermons will lack vitality. They will touch only
the intellectual side of life, and even there their value is questionable.
THE FORM OF THEOLOGY WHICH A MAN HOLDS AND
DECLARES HAS LITTLE OR NOTHING TO DO WITH HIS
POPULARITY AS A PREACHER. There is a deal of nonsense
talked about "THE HUNGERING OF THE MASSES FOR THE
GOSPEL." If any man knows of ANY SUCH SPECIFIC MASS
OF HUMANITY he will confer a favor upon a large number of preach
ers by pointing it out. Certainly Chicago docs not abound with masses
of this character.
The Trusts Rule the Nation
By HON. ROBERT M. LA FOLLETTE,
Governor ol Wisconsin.
One of the causes of revolution proclaimed in the declaration of
independence was : "Imposing taxes on us without our consent." To
ercise of the same power by a foreign monarch.
The arbirary control of the price of coal and iron and corn and
wheat and beef, whether by an extortionate transportation rate or by a
monster combination, is a more absolute tyranny of the American people
than quartering the army of King George upon the American colonists
.without their consent.
Let us see if the time he not ripe for a new declaration of Amer
ican independence.' We are building up colossal fortunes, granting un
limited power to corporate organization and consolidating and massing
together business interests as never before in the commercial history of
the world, but the people are losing control of their own government.
Its foundations are being sapped and its integrity destroyed.
The gravest danger menacing republican institutions to-day is the
overbalancing control of city, state and national legislatures by the
wealth and power of public service corporations. The national govern
ment, every state government, every city government has its problem to
solve not at some other time, but now.

important part in
the world, with a
properly considered the greatest sources of America's
wealth, are timber, corn and cotton. The majestic
forests, stretching from Maine to Mississippi, and the
great northwest ; the corn, "within whose yellow heart
there is of health and strength for all nations;" the
cotton, with its snowy fleece, converted into raiment for all the people
of the earth, mark this abundant, fruitful, wondrous land as the great
est among the manifestations of God.
Of the 900,000,000 pounds of cotton-seed oil produced in this
country, from an average cotton crop, much goes abroad and returns as
olive oil, and some of it becomes olive oil without foreign travel. Much
of this oil goes to the coast of Maine, whence, with young smelts and
bronzed tin boxes, it returns to our markets as French sardines. Nearly
one-half masquerades as pure butter and fine leaf lard, and the balance
comes squarely before us as cottolene and cotosuet
The effect of a pure vegetable

day great aggregations of corporate wealth buy
immunity from taxation in our legislatures and
throw the burden which they should bear upon
the individual taxpayer of every municipality

individual taxpayer is overtaxed for the benefit

TAXATION WITHOUT REPRE
