Kansas farmers are making serious
complaints that they can get no car

Mks. Laxgtbv's husband has jrone
to fight the Boers. It is to be hoped
that he will eojoy his vacation.
A Ciiaiii'aigk voun-rster, full of
bright ideas, stood watching his
father, who was salting down the
family winter supply of meat, and
taking an uneasy hitch in hi little
trousers, he said: "Now, pap&
wouldn't it be a good plan to say
grace over the whole lot? It would
save time at the table. "
The governor's grand stand play
over the Peoria asylum scandal fell
flat, and many of his friends think
that he made a mistake in giving tbe
affair to much publicity. They fear
that it will attract attention to the
management of their state institutions
and show one of the great weaknesses
of his administration.
Officials of the trantp;irt Zealan-
lia, wbicn nas 111st arrived at tn
Franciico from Manila, sav that dor
ing their stay at Manila tbe United

church property that had been stolen
by the rebels. Ibis confirms ben.

trtops did not loot the churches, but
that it was done by tbe rebels them.
"Tki'sts create the scarcity which
thev make the excuse for their extor
tions. They destroy competition
which, left free, would equalize de
mand and supply. Thev deprive the
young and the poor of equality, of
opportunity, which is tbe underpin
ning of our political system. They
degrade labor by impairing its inde
pendence; they are public enemies
ana their existence is a reproach to
civilization."' John .1. Ingalls in New

W ny are tne Liermaii Americans so
bitterly opposed to the imperialistic
policy of the republican party? Buck
llinncbseu asked an intelligent (er-
man the other dav. He replied: "Most
of the German immigrants during the
last twentv years l it the fatherland
to escape tbe heavy military duty
which that form of government im
pases upon its people, and they see in
the policy of the republican party a
tendency toward the same system they
came to America to escape. It is a
serious thing to give seveu years of
vour life, from is to 25. to soldiering.
not to speak of the liability to be
called out for service at an v time after
that. Just imagine, if vou can. how
it would be ia this country to have
everv bov of 18 forced into the army
for seven years active service, and
this, our people feel, will be the final
result if tbe poucv or tbe administra
tion is carried out. The Germans are
a patriotic people and are loyal to
their adopted country. They are
ready to tight for liberty, but they are
opposed to a policy which must lead
to the maintenance of a large stand
By means of the Pioctrotcope we can
obtain a probably more accurate deter
mination of the ttuu's velocity through
fipace. As is well known, the velocity
of a star iu tb- line of sight can !e
found by measuring the displacement
of the lines visible in the star's spec
trum. Now, the stars near the position
of tbe solar "apex" should be ap

This method has been employed by
several astronomers, especially by Vo
gel at the Totsdam observatory. This
able astronomer has found from an ex
amination of 40 stars that the sun's
.velocity through space !s about 7Vi
miles a second, but an examination of
a larger number of stars would be nec
essary before we could consider this
result as thoroughly established.
From an examination of the spectra
of 14 nebulae Professor Keeler of the
Lick observatory has found velocities
in the line of sight, and from these the
French astronomer Tisserand has de
duced a velocity of about 9 1-3 miles
for the solar motion, a result which
does not differ widely from that found
by Vogel. We may therefore perhaps
conclude that the velocity of the sun's
motion through space Is between 6 and
12 miles per second. Gentleman's

The great good that Morrow's Kidy

all forms of kidney and urinary dis
orders is being daily told by our citi
zens. All who use Kid-ne-cids for
backache, dizziness, sleeplessness,
nervousness and general debility give
hearty expression of the great relief
Frederick Ficken, a retired farmer,
residing at 619 Twenty-third street,
has used Morrow's Kid-ne-oids and is
now telling his friends that they are
a wonderful remedy, and are all tbat
the manufacturers claim for them.
Mr. Ficken savs: "I was troubled
with rheumatism in my back for
about ten years. The pains were so
bad at times that 1 could not straigbt
en up. they would draw me over to
one fide. I became so bad 1 had to
give up work. I used plasters aud
liniments externally and took medi
cine internally for it, but nothing I
could set or do gave me any relief.
until I got Morrow's Kid-ne-oids at
Bahnsen s drug store, which were
recommended to me. I am still tak
in? tbe Kid-ne-oids and have no
doubt but what they will cure me en
tirely, as I am improving rapidly."
Morrow's Kid-ne-oids are not pills
but yellow tablets, which is tbe scien
