REUNION OF THE QUANTRELL GANG.
The surviving remnant of that guerrilla band that fol
lowed Quantrell during his slaughterous civil war career
fceld their annual reunion at Independence, .Mo,, a few
days ago and deluged the flagstones cf that ancient ?.eat
of border ruffianism with tobacco juice.
There are fifty of them left, according to the roster,
a fact that does not cpeak well for the equitable admin
istration of the capital punishment laws of the state of
That all of them have not materially changed in their
opinions concerning the constituent virtues of good citi
zenship was evidenced by the fact that practically every
man of them exhibited emotions of sorrow and grief when
the report came to them that that eminent outlaw, Cole
Younger, could not, or would not, bo with them.
In looking over the roster of this bushwhacking broth
erhood it was significant and somewhat gratifying, to ob
serve that none of them hailed from Kansas. Many of
them came from Texas, and some from Arkansas, but as
a rule the guerrillas have kept close to the hills of west
ern Missouri, where they can chew their long green in
peace and find willing ears to listen to recitals of their
tales of plunder and arson and assassination across the
Somebody has said that a country's nomenclature is
an unfailing index to the character of its people. That
this is true in a measuro of that portion of the inhabit
ants of Missouri now under consideration cannot be bet

vivors. The leaders have such names as "Wash Salle, Hi

about the Blue Cut and Knobnoster in the bloody annals
of western Missouri.
In reading the proceedings of their reunion it is grati
fying to observe that while they inclined strongly to the
tragic in their youth the mellowness of age has given
them a keener appreciation of the buoyant and hilarious
qualities of farce comedy. For instance, when a speaker
without a safety valve said that the principles for which
Quantrell fought were eternally right, the prize valetudin
arians in the bunch threw away their canes and crutche3
and fairly lifted the roof off the Jackson county court
house with their enthusiasm.
Think of it! "The eternal principles for which Quant
rell fought" being considered and accepted as right forty
years after he sacked a town dedicated to liberty, mas
sacred a people opposing, peacefully, the sijl and shame
of human slavery,-and striving for a free state founded
upon the broadest principles of universal liberty ever
proposed in commonwealth building up to that time.
JThink of it, at the brightest and most hopeful moment in
human history, fifty men applauding tho deeds and so
called "principles" of a man whoso name will 'forever bo
associated with murder, arson and pillage, without much
regard for the age or the sex of his victims a man
'whoso methods of warfare were not recognized by even
tho Confederacy or approved by anybody outside of
' ADVANCE OF PURE FOOD.
It has become evident, even to tho casual observer of
street signs, that "pure food" is coming in for greater
commercial recognition, says the New York Evening
Post Aside from the moro or less faddish "health foods,"
the familiar and staple products of guaranteed purity are
coming to be regarded in a way as a separate grade of
groceries. The "pure food grocery store" is no longer a
novelty. The pure food laws of the various states, so far
as they prescribe tho special labelling of adulterated pro
ducts, have directly aided this separation, and in indirect
ways also have brought about some interesting condi
tions. In Minnesota, for instance, the food commissioner
has just ruled that canners may not use artificial coloring
to secure tho ruddy tint of their catsup. The usual way
of preserving the bloom of health on the cheek of the
canned chorry would also, by Implication be prohibited.
It will no longer be possible to deceive by removing the
original label or by selling outside the original package,
nc a restaurant keeper does. There are probably hun
dreds of thousands of persons in this country to whom
the look of a home-made preserve is unknown. These
persons will perceive, once thoy have tried the product o
a pure food state, that the familiar scarlet catsup must
contain something that harmless or not, was not in the
tomato. Special labels can be juggled with or printed
illegibly, but it will be a step gained if pure articles for
the table, even as served in the dish, are made to "look
different" from the impure.
Those who are anticipating the new apple crop with
pleasure, and who can distinguish between an Albermarle
pippin and a Bon Davis without resorting to a manual,
will be pleased to hear that Chicago has begun a crusade
against "embalmed apples." in that city, it is explained,
there is an officer, serving under the health commissioner,
known as tho fruit inspector. "One of his duties is to
look over tho stands whore fruit s sold, and if he finds
fruit so immature or damaged that it is unfit to be eaten,
he condemns it." He has an effectual way of condemn
ing it He carries with him a kerosene can, and if, for
example, ho sees slices of watermelon temptingly dis
played in a glass jar with pieces of ice bestowed around
them, and upon inspection decides that the melon is so
stale and decayed that it would be harmful -to eat it, lie
lifts the lid and pours a little kerosene into the jar. Other
decayed and dangerous fruits he treats In the same way.
The man who can suppress the embalmed apple, with its
coating of color that gives the consumer the sensation
of having devoured "soraothing resembling the surface of
fly paper,: certainly deserves to be extolled as "a beauti
ful civic figure, " Painting the red-cheeked Winesap

Such misgovernment, or lax and inefficient adminis
tration, is particularly evil because it' affects the next
generation and inflicts lasting Injury upon communities
suffering from the political, industrial and social power

maintenance of the public schools is a matter of vital
importance to every American city and town.
THE PIKERS' LAMENT;
A CITY'S DISGRACE.
New York City Is again facing the disgrace of Ijelng
enable to accommodate properly many thousands of chil
dren who will bo pupils in her public schools next fall,
If they can find seats for even half-day sessions. The
richest and greatest city of America Is llkelv to deprive
60.000 or 60.000 children of their natural school advan
tages, because no room has been provided for them.
In so vast a center of wealth, commerce and popula
tion as the city which stands at the main gateway through
which foreigners enter the United States and typifies for
them the best in the American republic, this crime
against childhood and public welfare alike Is peculiarly
fhsmefuL New York has not failed to build a speedway,
THE WEALTH OF THE SOUTH.
While many people are deploring the financial-crisis,
a brief review of the increasing prosperity of the south is
reassuring to the entire nation. In 1860 the assesssed
wealth of the southern states was 5,200,190,S18. Then
came war and devastation. The cost of that strife to the
south, including slaves, is shown when, twenty years
later, even after reconstruction had been accomplished,
Its wealth was two billion dollars less than in 13G0.
But the last two decades tell a different story, for
progress has marked 'the course of the states in many
ways, so that in 1902 the figures read 5,91G,9G0,000.
These are but the assessment figures of the states them
selves. As the census for 1890 gave the wealth, of the
south as more than double the state figures', it is esti
mated that the actual wealth when given out by the cen
sus for 1900, which is likely to be more uniform, will be
at least fourteen billions. This almost equals the total
wealth of the country just prior to the civil war.
These figures give a good idea how the south has been
developed, in many instances by nortnern capital, which
opened mills,N aided in establishing steamship lines for
the export trade, dug oil wells, etc. When it is consid
ered that the south is adding to its assessed wealth "at
the rate of from $200,000,000 to $250,000,000 a year, thefo
need be no fear for its future welfare.
JULY'S FOREIGN TRADE.
American exports last monih. did net exceed the fig
ures for July, 1902,. quite enough to offset the increase in
imports, but the balance of trade changed very slightly.
The surplus of exports was cut down about 300,000 but it
remained above 39,01)0,000.
Such conditions are all that could reasonably be ex
pected. The tendency to buy foreign products more
freely is always strong when this country is enjoying
good times, and the large immigration of tho past two
or three years does much to keep imports expanding.
New comers to America are apt to have a strong liking
for merchandise with familiar old World names and marks
on it As long as exports can be kept on the upward scale
sufficiently to offset most of the natural increase in im
ports, the international trade of the United States should
favor a comfortable money market and steady progress
in the direction of changing this country from a debtor
to a creditor nation.
Meanwhile, the total volume of foreign commerce is
up to the highest limits ever reached. That means much
for the general activity of productive forces in America,

WONDERS OF CYCLE WORLD.
In this part of the world bicycling is dead, as a popu
lar sport, at any rate for the present, but some wonder
ful feats are being performed by cyclists where they stilll
hold a fair share of public interest and favor.
In France, a record breaking hour's ride has just been
made, of more than fifty miles in that time. In this coun
try it has come to sue ha point that races of twenty or
twenty-five miles are being ridden, on eastern tracks, at
the rate of about a minute and a quarter to the mile. It
is commonplace now for bicyclists, behing big pacing
machines', to ride for twenty miles, or for an hour, at an
average pace far better than champions used to reach in
single mile races. In fact the best records ever made
by the most powerful automobiles on circular tracks, are
not much ahead of tho work dono by the extraordinary
human machines that ride bicycles, xiieir feats seem
beyond the possibilities of flesh and blood.
