It is claimed that some girls are not sanitary enough with the chamois powder rags with which they smear the pazzona on . their faces. The Atchison Globe says that some of these days the municipal authorities will take the matter up and pass rules to the effect that the powder rag must not he used longr than a week continuously; at present it is used as long as six years. When it becomes the color of the rag used in polishing the stove, it mast be burn ed, and another on purchased. At present it is used when blacker than .fee stove rag. Since a girl insists upon carrying it inside her shirt waist, it is no more than proper pre caution that it be bang on the line every few days .to air. Every girl should change ber powder rag as of ten as she changes her underwear. Clear up the complexion, cleanse the liver and tone tbe system.

De WITT'S WITCH HAZEL 5ALVE For Piles, Boras, Sores. Pres. Land Forfeiture C3 Passes' Senate Con- nlttee of Whole. Consideration of the western school lands forfeiture bill, which was intro duced by Senator -Busehow, was tbe first matter of importance to occupy the attention of the senate today. It was a special order in general orders aod after the usual routine business had been transacted a committee of the whole was" formed to consider it with Senator E. F. Porter, of Mont gomery, in the chair. There were no important amend ments offered to the first section of the bill. Bat when the" second section was read Senator Smith, introduced an ameadment in tbe form of , a new second section. - Senator- Smith 'de clared that sections two and three of the bill invalidated the measure. His amendment he said would correct 90 per cent of the forfeitures. t A brief oa this bill was placed on the desks of all the senators. It was prepared for those who are back of the measure, by Frank Doster and T. F. Garver, and in it was this state ment: "In our opinion this bill con tains nothing that is not clearly with in the legislative powers and provides the best way in which adequate relief to these settlers can be given by law." Senator Smith made a long legal ar gument In support of hisamendment He was answered by Senator Young, who bad taken charge of the bill on the floor Senator Young doubted the propriety of the amendment offered by Senator Smith. He said the sec tions as it stood in the bill had been most carefully considered and that it should not be changed by an amend ment such as was offered by Senator Smith, because this amendment had not been considered as carefully as the original section had. Senator Young expressed the opin ion that the section as it stood was perfectly valid and he offered as an amendment an addition to the section which he said covered the important objection raised by Senator Smith. Senator Young afterwards withdrew the amendment he offered. A long legal and technical argu ment followed the merits of the sec tion and the amendments. It was the opinion of Senator Getty that the differences over the validity of the second section of the bill was one of opinion between two classes of law yers. - His own judgment as a legal proposition was against section 2 but he did not consider himself infallible on questions of law and he proposed to vote for tbe bill as it was drawn by the eminent lawyers who had been engaged by those promoting tbe measure. Senator Fitzpatrick was opposed to the measure but said that if the bill was passed the amendment offered by Senator Smitn should take the place of the second section of the bill. He did not see why tbe legislature had a right "to butt in" on a proposition over the validity of proDerty rights. This was a question that the courts alone should determine. Senators Porter of Montgomery, Simons, Noftzger, Smith and Young indulged in a futher discussion of the original second section and the Smith amendment. After the discussion of an hour and a half a vete was taken on tbe Smith amendment and it was lost by an overwhelming majority. Senator Smith moved that thecom mittee of the whole rise and ask leave to sit again on the measure. This mo tion was lost and the consideration of the bill was proceeded with. All the sections of the bill were then read No amendments were offered to these sections and on a motion of Senator Young, which prevailed, the commit tee of the whole decided to report tbe bill to the senate with the recommen dation that it be passed. Senator Porter, of CrawTo.-d, who was chairman of the cemmittee of the whole, reported the action of the committee and the senate adopted the report. The bill will probabjy coiue up for tiaal passage some time this afternoon, and it will undoubtedly pass. - Senator Young, handled the fight for the bill in a skillful manner and although there was Iots.of debate on tne proposition there was never any doubt after the first skirmish that the senators would act favorably on tbe bill. We have heard a number of good resolutions for the year 1907 but the best one we have heard is one that a friend told us the other day that he had made which we here give in sub stance: That I will strictly attend to my own business; I will not med dle with the affairs of others that do not in any maaoer concara me. I will hold my tongue when it can only sar ill of another, and; if I can. help a way-worn or despondent brother along life's pathway, I will give him a boost. ; An English woman says that women make much better bankers than men.
