Official Prison Record: KANSAS- Sentenced for Murder NEBRASKA-Sentenced for Murder Eighty-five Kansas murderers convicted and sentenced in the short space of two years ending June 30,, 1916, as against twenty-nine in Nebraska in the same period! The appalling murder record of Kansas carries a lesson of, terrible import to the citizens of Nebraska. Under prohibi tion there has grown up in Kansas the inevitable "Alley Joint" evil. In these "joints" liquors of the vilest sort are dispensed to men and boys by dissolute characters,, both male and female, spreading crime and debauchery to every part of the state. - (Excerpts from article in "The Topeka Daily-State Journal'' of August 29, 1916.) "Of the 166 criminal cases docketed for the September term of court, 106 are for violations of the prohibitory law. As a rule, about one-tenth of the cases brought chare ing violations of the prohibitory taw are tried. They cost tlie county about $50 each," "One noticeable thing about the criminal docket' for the September term is that forty-six of the JOINT cases are against women." If you are opposed to the Alley Joint evil and the increase of crime, vote No on the prohibi- tion amendment. The squares shown below will appear at ballot. An X marked in square 301 is & PROHIBITION. Shall the above and foregoing amendment )to the Constitution be adopted?; Yostorday was Columbus Day, a legal stato holiday.

Tho following first nld measure fo children who put bonus, buttons, grnv- cl nnd other objects up Into their nos trils is given by Dr. David 12. Spabr tu Farm nnd Fireside. "A lndy residing In tho country cull cd nio up Into at night nnd told me In nn anxuus, agonizing volco thnt n'ao wanted me to couio nt once as her baby hnd n grain of corn In Its nose," tho doctor writes. "I told her It would not bo necessary for nio to como If she would do as 1 hid her. She said the corn was in tho left nostril. I told her ust to lay tho child down on the bed on Its back, compress tho right nostril with tho finger; then, as the bnby cried, place her mouth over the baby's mouth nnd blow hard. In another mo ment a happy, Joyful volco camo ring ing over tho lino: 'Doctor, wo got the corn. It's nil right nnd you don't need to como!' "Thus I lost my five dollar fee, hut made n happy mother. "This Is not n very elegant or per haps sanitary plan, but I ussuro you It Is speedy and effectual." Measuring Electricity. Tho terms volt, ampere, ohm, watt nnd farad, met with In works on elec tricity, mean very llttlo to most people. The volt is tho unit of electrical pres sure, tho ampcro tho unit of current strength, the ohm tho unit of resist ance, tho wntt tho unit of electric pow er, nnd the least of nil known, farad, tho unit of olectrlenl capacity. Current strength is determined by di viding tho pressure by tho strength; thus tho number of amperes of current strength is equal to tho number of volts divided by tho number of ohms. The wntt indicates the amount of electric energy being used when an nmpero of current Is flowing under a ptessuro of ono volt However, tho. term kilowatt. or 1,000 wntts, Is more generally used. Tho unit of electrical capacity, tho farad, will contain one nmpero of cur rent nt one volt prcssuro for ono second of time. The fnrnd Is divided Into n million equal parts, each pnrt termed the microfarad, and this Js tho term most used In stating electrical capacity. Japan's Curious Museum.

Who would Imagine that thoro aws wild camels in Spain, nnd in a part of Spain which Is flooded durjng n great part of tho year? Yet tho thing is vouched for by tho nuthors of "Unox- plorcd Spain." Tho explanation is that "the animals were introduced to Spain in 1820 by tho Marquis of Villafraucn, with tho object of employing them in transport and agriculture, as they aro commonly used on tho opposlto shorw of Africa. But local difficulties e sued, chiefly nrlshig from tho intent xeur auu reiiugnnucu oi uurocs lowtuu camels, which resulted In numerous accidents, and eventually tho bactrlaM wcro set frco In tho marlsma, whsss- in they havo slnco lived at largo an4 bred under wholly wild conditions." Words. Words aro used for various purposes to cvado issues, to put pcoplo to Bleep, to break up homes, to present literature and to conceal ideas. Noth lng exceeds Uko words. Words aro used in speeches, debates and stories. Massed in serried groups In newspapers nnd text books thoy pro- vent pcoplo from learning anything. Last words aro most effective and aro employed exclusively by women and prominent citizens who aro dying. Words aro nothing in themselves, but only in their relationship to other words. It is tho system of putting them together that counts. Most words aro like unorganized militia. In war tho mortality among thom is fearful. They never win battles. "When words aro found In regular army style, how over, disciplined and experienced, thoy aro llkoly to bo invincible. Judge Whore Women Don't Like to Shop.

Mthough among tho Indians then nro not so many Decrslnyers ns then wcro In tho dayB of James Fcnlmoro Cooper, yet many of tho names still possess strong individuality.

Now York Times. Lines on the Palms of Hands. It cannot bo Bald that tho lines on tho palms of our hands nro of nuy great service to us. Indeed, it Is doubt ful If they aro of any valuo in them' selves, outsldo ot tho posslhlo aid they may bo in holplng us to detonnlno tho chnrncter of tho surfaco of things which wo grasp or touch. It is possl bio that thoy old in somo slight degree in tills way. Thoro is llttlo doubt however, thnt they nro a result of tho work tho hands aro constantly called upon to do rather than contrived for any particular service. Tho habitual tendency of tho fingers in grasping and holding things throws tho skin of tho palms Into creases which turougu rro qucnt repetition mako tho lines of tho palms pcrmauont in several instances Tho neculiarity of theso lines or creases in various individuals as to do talis and length und variations is the chief basis of tho so called sclcnco of tnlinlstry.
