Please Keep Your Money. Tliere is so mucli pleasure in pub lishing a newspaper that some editors are refasing money as a reward for their services. Here is the voice of a Xorth Dakota editor, which fairly gurgles with the joy he feels to work without money: "It takes wind to run a newspaper. It takes gall to run a newspaper. It takes a scintillating, acrobatic imag ination and a half-dozen white shirt. and a railroad pass to run a news paper. But money heavens to Betsy and six hands around. Who ever needed money to run a newspaper? Kind words are the medium of ex change that do the business for the editor kind words and church social tickets. When you see an editor with money watch him. He will be paying bills and disgrace the profes sion. Make him trade it out. He lives to swap. Then when you die, after haTing stood around and sneer ed at his little jimcrow paper, be sure ana nave your wue sena in xor three extra copies by one of your children, and when she reads the generous and touching notices about you, forewarn her to neglect to send fifteen cents to the editor. The edi tor knows it and what he wants Is heartfelt thanks. Then he can thank the printers and they can thank the groeers. Don't worry about the edi tor. He has a charter lrom the state to act as a door-mat for the commun ity. He'll get the paper out some how, and stand up for you when you run for office, and lie about your, pigeon-footed daughter's wedding and blow about your big-fooed boys when they get a $4 per week job, and weep over your shriveled soul when it is released from your grasping body, and smile at your giddy wife's second marriage. He'll get along. Tne Lord only knows how, but the editor will get there somehow." W. Finkenbinder, county clerk of Scott county, has put another ques tion regarding the sales of school lauds that have been forfeited. Su preme court has knocked out all cases of forfeiture because the sheriff 01 his returns did nob make a sufficient showing of what action had been taken. The county clerk has written to A. Gibson, school land clerk in the auditor's office wanting to know if he should start proceedings to forfeit the lands a second time. The lands have been taken up by another resettle and his title is cloud ed because the lands were cot forfeit ed properly. The original settler who gave up his lands years ago Is not likely to come back and make his claim unless the land is exceedingly valuable, as the accumulated interest and taxes amount to a large sum, but this man still has a valid title to the land and can obtain possession at any time he wishes to make the back pay ments. To forfeit the lands a second time the sheriff would have to find that no one was in possession, and, in the case M. Finkenbinder refers to the land clerk, a man has built a home and is living on the property, making it impossible to forfeit the title. Mr. Gibson advised the county clerk to have the settler buy an as signment from the original owner. Salina Journal.

Vote on all the High Schools. It will be a surprise to a good many counties in the state to learn that un der the 1905 law they will be required at the coming fall election to decide by popular vote whether or not they will provide a special tax levy for the support of county high schools. .Such an election is required in every county "in which one or more school districts or cities of less than 1600 population shall have maintain ed high schools." The law says: "At the next general election, un less previously submitted, the follow ing proposition shall be submitted in eaeh county or part of the county in the state to which this iaw may apply,- viz: 'May the provisions of the high school act of 1905 apply in this, county?" ! If the proposition carries, the coun ty commissioners must at once levy a special tax of not less than one-fourth of a mill, or more than 3 mills, for the purpose of creating a general high school fund. The money is tnen divided up among the school districts in proportion to the attendance-at the high school. The effeet of the law, if generally adopted, will be to establish a system of county high schools in the state. If the proposi tion is beaten in the coming eleetion, it may be resubmitted at any future, election on request of a petition sign ed by 25 per cent of the taxpayers. Oakley Graphic. Kansas City has a doctor who has found what the medical profession have been seeking to" learn for many years. "The Uses of tne Appendix Vermiform." This doctor, C. H. Car son, looks upon surgical operations that remove the appendix as a crime against nature. He has cured perma nently every case of -appendicitis that has been brought to him for treat ment at his home, Twelfth and Wash ington streets, Kansas City, Mo. He publishes a magazine which gives full details of this method of treatment and will send it to all readers of The World who write for it and tell him they saw the notice in this paper.

The Sortonville, Kas.,- Xew tells howa Missouri editor got into trouble: He had written an article concerning a recent fire and also an obituary o'f a particularly pecuniary citizen. In making up the forms the foreman got the items mixed and the following came outln the paper: "The bearers lowered the body to the grave and as it was consigned to flames there were but few if any regrets for the wreck had been an eye-sore to the town for years. Of course there was an individual loss, but that was fully covered by insurance." The widow thinks the editor wrote the obituary that way because the lamented part ner of her joys and sorrows owed him five year's subscription.

Editor Empire: If you have the in fluence to scare the farmers of this county into ridding it of "dodder" you will do more for them than all the politics that you so ably handle. I neyer saw "dodder" until this year. It has been in other sections of the state for a long time. To those who do not know it, it may be identi fied by its yellowish orange color, waving over the 'top of weeds and alfalfa, and upon inspection will be found to be supported entirely by its "host," as the plant on which it feeds is termed. It eomes from seed, swings around until it finds something to fasten on and then what little root it has dies, leaving it entirely on whatever it has hold of, where it fattens and throws out more trailers, covering, from one seed, a large area in one season. It is now beginning to bloom and in about a month will have seed ed. This pest will entirely ruin the al falfa if it is not eradicated. It comes in alfalfa seed frequently, . and is started by this means more than any other, but what I have seen thus far has been in the draws and on the weeds, where it will seed and spread to the alfalfa. Mr. Charles E. Bessey, the noted botanist of the University of Nebras ka, in last week's Breeder's Gazette says that to eradicate it, it must be cut out early and then ' see that no, fresh seed is sown. This means that it must be cut and destroyed, as if thrown where vegeta tion is growing it will find something to fasten to and will go on to seed, even keeping alive a long time on the plant that is cut if kept from any other. A' broken - branch carelessly dropped will fasten itself to a living plant and grow. Farmers would better cut all of this at once, being careful to see that none is left or any that is cut get away, and when dried a little, throw it on a burning straw pile and let it be consumed. By all means see that none of it seeds or your whole alfalfa field may be taken next year. Homer Kejjneit. Concordia Empire.

Drop in some even ing and see if we can't show you something new. A. B. JONES. Stock Yards, Kansas City, Mo., Tues day, July 24th, 1906. Prices on the various classes of cat- tie were given a pretty thorough test today, as some extra good quality was shown in finished beef steers, three loads at $6.20, yearlings and heifers mixed at $5 80, and a drove of short horn panhandle feeders, lo0pounds, wintered in Kansas, at $4.70. Yet in spite of these high prices, which were the top paid here to date this season( the general market is called weak to 10 lower today. It shows that the demand for a choice class of .cattle is increasing rather faster than produc tion, although great strides toward perfecting their herds have been made by the cattle raisers of the Southwest of late years. However, the surplus of low grade, nondescript cattle continues burdensome, and is. responsible for the big bulk of com plaints heard from sellers. Last week was a good week, but this week only the best cattle have sold up to expec tations; grass cattle generally are 5 to 15 cents below close of last week. Run today is 13,000 head, Kansas grazed steers selling from $4.00 to $5.15, heifers $3.25 to $4.25, cows $2.50 to $3.75, dry lot cattle around $1.00 per cwt above these figures. Veals are 25 to 50 cents lower than last week, acceunt of a big supply this week, and congested veal and' mutton mar kets east, best ones $4.75 to $5.50. Packers, have taken about all the grass steers so far, a few heavy feed ers to the country at $4.00 to $4.75, and some low grade stock cattle at $2.50 to $3.25, stock heifers strong. $2.25 to $3.00. Supply of branded stock and feeding eattle will be heavier after this week. Hog prices are fluctuating consider ably, with a downward tendency last week, but the market seems to be gaining strength this week, top today $6.70, highest in ten days, bulk $6.60 to $6.65. . Weights around 190 pounds sell at the top, account of a good ship ping demand for that kind. It looks like the packers could not put th price down permanently as they can not keep from competing for the rather limited supply, 13,000 today, and markets are active this week High prices are causing producers to take more pains with their hogs than heretofore, more dipping tanks are in use, in effort to prevent disease, and all labor in this direction is well re paid. Buyers have taken 50 to 75 cents off the price of sheep and lambs in the last ten days, and yet prices are pret ty high. Supply is fairly good, 6000 today, market steady at reeent de clines, top spring lambs today $7.30, wethers $5.00 to $5.60, yearlings up to 6.00, ewes $4.65, thin Utahs weighing 83 pounds. Range sheep will soon start from the Northwest, and it does not look hopeful for advauce in prices just now. J. A. Rickart, L. S. Correspondent. Every avenue of living is being made easier by the inventive genius of the age. There was a time when the farmer or his wife must rise with the first faint streak of dawn to milk. After a day of weary toil he must go again in the falling dust with a one legged stool and sit thereon while an irritable cow wrapped her impatient tail about his neck or- deposited her right hind foot in his weary lap. Today they have at Manhattan col lege of agriculture a milking machine. It is an engine from which radiate a lot of rubber tentacles, capped by suckers, four of which are assigned simultaneously to each cow. As many cows can be "pailed" at one ti e as there are suckers. What a great in vention. Twenty-five years ago the suggestion of such a thing vrouldhave caused a cow to laugh till her cud rat tled, but here it is at last. No more milk maids, no more burning swish of a cow's tail, no more homely devices to keep off the flies or mosquitoes, no more red, cracked hands for the farm er's wife or daughter. Milking done with a gasoline engine. The world do move. Ottawa Herald. The Brown County World, at Hiawatha, says Miss Mattie Trees, a country teacher in that county, has taught for 29 years without missing a day Iroi..- her work. She never attended a high school but is pro ficient in many branches not included in such a course. Two interesting facts are stated; among the county school teachers to whom she was sent when acbild were three farmers in the school district who were college grad uates, who took great interest in their apt pupil, and one of them stat ed that Miss Trees completed the first year's course in Latin in six weeks. The other unusual fact is that, despite the low wage and her superior qualifications, she always at tends a teacher's institute; sometimes in her home county, or sometimes at the Emporia Normal or some good town, so as to get the latest ideas in teaching. Such teachers are invalua ble, and yet they are often turned down in order to nave the district a few dollars a month. A Fire and Lightning policy in the Continental is a good and safe one. W. H.
