Rafe Leake departed yesterday
for New York. Mr. Leake with
several others in this vicinity is in
terested in the Leake estate of
$700,000,000 which will be up for
settlement in the near future. The
property is located in and near
New York City. Mr. Leake gave it
out that he is going to stop at the
Waldorf Astoria while in New York
so he certainly feels certain of get
ting his part of the estate. Here's
hoping that he will.

A Dangerous Capitalist.
Editor N. M. Baskett pays his re
spects to the Money-King of this
country in the following well-rounded
One of the most dangerous men
in the country is J. Pierpont Mor
gan. No! He is not a burglar, a
highwayman, or a pirate. He never
scuttled a ship, with tools, or cut a
throat, with a razor; but he has
doi.e more to create trusts and mo
nopolies and stifle honest competi
tion than any other man the coun
try knows, not excepting John D
Rockefeller. He has grown rich off the unearn
ed increment of organization, by
concentrating the supplies of indus
trial necessities into the hands of a
few while robbing the public of
competition, he has laid a heavy
toll upon the parties for whom he
has established the monopoly. He
also received millions of dollars
from the Government by acting as
its agent for the sale of bonds. In
his schemes of flotation, he has wa
tered more stock than all the cattle
kings that ever roamed over the
plains of Kansas, Texas, Colorado
and New Mexico, and when the
trust monopoliy or corporation was
organized his safety deposit boxes
were overflowing with certificates
of indebtedness, paying a dignified
income, his renumeration from the
companies which he had organized
for helping them to stifle competi
tion. For creating the Harvester Trust
he received 165,000 shares of th e
stock which, in August last was
valued at $13,500,000. This was a
small per cent of what he received
for the formation of the Steel Trust.
We could cite many transactions of
a similar nature, but these will
serve to illustrate what a man can
do when he starts out to concen
trate traffic in to the hands of a
few and to prevent commerce upon
the basis of honest competition and
prevent the law of honest supply
and demand. Such payment for
such services, if continued through
20 years, will make John D. look
like a four flusher.
A man doesn't have to be an or
dinary law breaker to become dan
gerous to his fellow men. Rather
he becomes dangerous through his
ability to commit acts against which
the law has provided no safeguard s.
He is dangerous, not to the individ
ual but to all mankind for the pres-
ing the avenues of trade to the
small dealer and the man of mod
erate means, and lessening the lines
of employment for the laborer, and
this is what Morgan is doing.

About thirty members of the
Monroe Rebekah Lodge went to'
Clarence, Thursday, to attend the
fourth annual meetirg of district1
No. 12. There are about twelve'
lodges in the district. The attend
ance was good. Several good talks
for the good of the Order were made .
and much routine business was
transacted. Mrs. Susie Kolknieyer ;
of Jefferson City, the Vice President 1
of the State Rebekah Assembly,
was present and imparted much
valuable information. Those from
here speak highly of the way they
were welcomed by the good people
of Clarence. Hunnrwell and Mon
roe extended invitations to hold the
1913 meeting in their cities. Mon
roe was selected. Monroe also se
cured two officers of the District
Association, Mrs. G. W. Tompkins

ficers are Mrs. Lotus Browne of
Hunnewell as Vice President; Mrs.
J T. Perry, of Shelbyville. as Ward

Many compliments were passed
on them for the way the work was
exemplified. Some places were fill
ed in and the arrangements of hall

ral that some mistakes would be
made in the drills. Besides the Staff
has only recently been organized
and has not practiced much.

Sit and Wait.
Don't advertise if you believe
you are wasting your money. Let
your competitor waste the money
on advertising and perhaps in this
way you can put him out of busi
ness. Just stand back and laugh
at him when you see him squander
ing his money for printer's ink.
That's it. If you are bothered
by a competitor who hasn't any
more gumption than to advertise
just stay calm and sit around and
whittle as usual. Just be patient
and t3ke things easy, while spiders
spin webs across your cash drawer
and the dirt daubers build them
yet more stately mansions on your
store shelves. Just wait, and keep
on waiting. And if the competitor

he gets more and more business as
the months and years go by, don't
mind it. You know that advertis-
ing does not pay, and just as cer
tain as you are about that, just as
i certain you may be that he will
become a bankrupt, after which you
may have a chance to dispose of
your shelf-worn goods. Bi patient
and whittle. Be calm and keep
knocking. Be wise and save the
money you might spend for adver
tising. And when the public has
forgotten you, when the flies have
left their insignia upon every bit of
merchandise in your house, and
when you have become an old and
disappointed and embittered man,
out of tune with the times, out of
the current of modern life, and fail
ure is writ large upon your con
science, you may still be consoled
by the reflection, that your foolish
competitor has built up a business
so big that it is about to give him
nervous prostration. Dallas News.
When a Vice-President Dies.
When the president dies the vice
president or a cabinet officer be
comes president. But when a vice
president dies no one succeeds to
the title. There is co vice-president
A vice-president has two func
tions. He is the presiding officer
of the Senate and he is next in line
for the presidency in the event of
the death or disability of the presi
dent. At the death of the vice
president these two functions are
divided. The senator whom the
senate has chosen as its president
pro tern, becomes the regular pre
siding officer of that body. Bat the
presidential succession isvested in
The constitution committed to
congress the arranging for the suc
cession to the presidency and in
1792 congress enacted a law pro
viding that the succession should
extend to the president pro tern of
the senate and after him to the
speaker of the house, a new election
to be held within two months. In
1886. however, this law was amend -ed
so that now in the event of the
death of the viiv-prr-sidiVit the suc
cession goes to the secretary of the
state, secretary of the treasury, sec
tary of war. attorney general, past
master general, secretary of the
navy and secretary of the interior.
No provision is made for a new
election. The theory was that in
this way the president's party
would remain in control of the gov
ernment, no matter what might
happen. Kansas City Star.
At the December term of the
Linn County Court a contract is to
be let to build a new $90,000 court
house to replace the old one built
before the war. Such buildings
speak well for a county and are
worth more than the cost in guar
anteeing the safety of the records.
