Whose hopes are built on n maiden's truth.
Rut the maiden wilt break her vows with ease
For a wooer Cometh whose claims arethese
A hollow heart and an empty head
A face well tinged with the brandy red,
A soul welt trained In villainy's school,
Hut cash awert cash be knoweth the rule;
Dimes and dollars, dollars and dimes!

I know a bold and an honest man,
Who tries to live on a Christian plan,
But poor he is and poor will be
A scorned and hated wretch is be.
At home he meets a starving wife
Abroad he leada a leper's life,
They struggle against fearful odda.
Who will not bow to the money gods.

No questions asked by the rich, I trow

What Will The Harvest Bu?
The solid South stood pat and
enough of the northerners combined
them to put in Woodrow Wilson as
our next President. Note that he
went in with a very l.tre majority of
the electoral votes, hut not with a
majority of the popular vote of this
country. And his vote was sin tiler
than Bryan's in 1896, though there
ue a great many more p'iop'e in
this country than there were in that
Note, that Theodore Roosevelt
received something like seven times
(is many electoial votes as Wil iam
Howard Taft, and about 750,000
in -re of the popular vote.

Business is Poor With the
Doctoring isn't the business it used
to be 1 A Brooklyn specialist says
that less than ten per cent of the
physicians in greater New York are
earning a really good living. Un
doubtedly the real cause of the scar
city of patients, of which the old
school physicians complain, is to be
found in the remarkable growth of
drugless systems of healing. One
prominent physician, ol the regular
allopathic school, has estimated that
ten million Americans now employ
some form of drugless healing when
sick. Osteopathy, Christian Science,
Suggestion, Diet Cure, etc., etc.,
have displaced allopathy in millions
of homes, and these new methods of
healing have come to stay. AH of
these drugless methods come nearer
to reaching the cause ol disease than
do the older methods of treatment.
For this reason the new methods help
to keep people well after they are
healed. If the old school physician
would retain and extend his practice
he will find it necessary to give more
attention to fresh air, hygiene, exer
cise and diet, and to depend less up
on uudious chemical experiments i
upon his patients. The up-to-date
physician is advancing with the times.
Another Demonstration Farm.
The sixth demonstration farm on
the Iron Mountain tracks of the Mis-1
souri Pacific-Iron Mountain System '
has been located at Arcadia, Mo., on j
the grounds of the Arcadia College (
adjoining the right-of-way of the 1
railroad. Rev. Father John Adrian, j
of the College, who has been a stud-1
cnt of scientific farming for some
time, will be in charge under the gen
eral supervision of Mr. L. A. Mark-'
ham, Commissioner ol Agriculture for'
the Iron Mountain.
Eighteen acres will be placed unP
der cultivation at once, and within ai
year or so the farm will be extended I
to twenty-five or thirty acres. The
business interests and residents of
Arcadia united in a movement to
have tne railroad select this site.
The farm will also be used in con
junction with the course in agricul
ture included in the college's curri
culum. A specially will be made of fruits,
particularly apples, which, it is be
lieved, can be grown as successfully
there as in southwestern Missouri and
northwestern Arkansas. Small fruits,
such as grapes anil berries, particu
larly strawberries, will be raised, and
vegetable fanning will be a feature,

SALOONS CAUSE OF TROUBLE
Convictions In Police Court of Brts
bsne Incresie Qreatly When
Dram Shops Are Opened.
The dtlxens of Brlsbeno, Australia,
were recently given a striking Illus
tration of the fact that arrests for mis
demeanors multiply with the opening
of saloon doora and decrease when
they awing shut. A Mg strike was on
In the city and many workmen were
Idle. As an experimental measure
the saloons wore closed for one week.
Convictions tn the police courts
promptly dropped from eighty-six to
twenty-six, and arrestr for drunken
ness from fifty to five. After one
week of prohibition the saloons were
permitted to do business from three
to six In the afternoon. Convictions
lumped to thirty-five, and arrests for
drunkennes to fourteen. Next, the sa
loons were allowed taj run twelve
hours each day. Convictions Jumped
to eighty-eight, and arrests for drun
kenness to forty. The following week
ell restrictions were withdrawn, and
the convictions numbered 109. the ar
rests for drunkenness sixty-seven.
NOT A PRODUCER OF REVENUE
Intoxicating Liquor Is Not Necessity
Nor Luxury Fountain of Vlea
Should Be Supareseeel.
(By ATTOrtMKT GENERAL DAWSON
Our Ideas of equity acquiesce read
ily In the doctrine that luxuries should
bear a heavier rata of taxation than
neosltles. But Intoxicating liquor Is
nslther a luxury nor a necessity. It
Is a vice and the fountain of vice, and
we have no moral right to depend
upon vioe aa a scarce of revenue.
Luxuries are to be taxed; vloe Is to
be suppressed. Furthermore, It can
be shown from a myriad of proofs
that the license ayatam Is not a reve
nue produoar; It la not avaa what It
pretends to be. In cities where the
prohibitory law haa been enforced and
the revenue licensee or license floes
shut off, the laetdenU of the liquor
business court ooeta, paupers, de
pendent and neglected children, and
kindred puhllo expenses, shrink also,
so that the loss of the Hoen.se revenue
doe not affect the ordinary taxpayer.
