A mosssback. gentle reader, is
a cross between the fifth and the
fifteenth century. He is found
in fossilised form in nearly every
city of the United States and
still lives. He raises his rents,
detests a boom, loves to have an
enterprise, despises anything
which smacks of progress. and
won't help a newspaper boom its
own town. There are several
varieties of uiossback, but none
of much use to a town. They are

It is amusing to note that the
chairman of the Democratic
committee is advising bis com-
mittee that the campaign next
year should be made on the tar-
i'Y issue and at the same time the
Democratic spell-binders should
avoid referenco to the schedules
on which the Democrats in con
gress split and part voted with
the Republicans. As an ex
change says, Chairman Lloyd
wants his party to dodge and
run away from the acta of some
prominent men. But that will
not work. The people read too
much to be caught on such a
hook. As a inatUr of fct thoy
don't admire a manor set of men
who are rank protectionists ao
far as the interests of their dis
tricts ar concerned and free
tra.dtfr and tariff for revenue
only when it concerns things
which their district doosnot pro
duce. Such a policy will surely
result in disaster, as it should.

A man has no moral right to
reside in a city unless he has ab
solute faith in it. .He is doing
himself an injustice if he lites in
a town in which be has no faith.
lie cannot hope to be as a citizen
as he otherwise would be unless
be has that faith.
By having faith in a city is not
meant that one should close his
eyes to its imperfections. Indeed
if he has faith in it, it is because
he understands its weaknesses
as well as its strength.
Life Is ao abort, and so much
depends upon the attitude of
the mind toward one's home that
no man can afford to live in a city
in which he has lost faith. If
for any reason be loses Interest
h should leave. He is not doing
himself justice and he is doing
the city an injustice to live in it
if he has no faith ia its future.

Sam Hatcher, of Paola, Kaas.
came here ubout two weeks Rgo
and agreed to purchase Arthur
Vail'a farm at JGS an acre. Mr.
Vail furnished him an abstract
of title to the land and the strang
er said he would return on the
2Sth to finish the deal. But be
fore leaving for home be had Mr.
M. L. Beadles a notary public to
certify to a paper of some kind
a power of attorney. On Tues
day Mr. Vail was informed that
Hatcher took out a mortgage for
$3,000 on the farm in question at
Nevada. He produced a deed
from Mr. Vail good enough to
fool the loan agents nt Nevada,
but where did he Ret i;? Mr
Vail and Mr. Beadles are now at
Nevada looking up the matter.

supposition is that he pasted the
