T S THE SKYSCRAPER. HAVE YOU EVER PAUSED TO THINK of the influence of a newspaper in youj home? T 'is a daily companion for better, for worse. It not only colors your of n thoughts, (but helps to form the characters of your children and to shape theuvlivp for good or ill. The only kind o( newspaper that is safe to have in the house is one that has Character one that you can trust as a family friend one that youf daughter may read as freely as your son. j i IHE RICHMOND PALLADIUM publishes that kind of a oaner every weelr day. It has been the constant aim of the presjht management to make the PALLADIUM the fbest andtnewsiest caper in Richmond; to make it a paper worthits long and glor ious past. I THE BEST NEWSPAPER costs no more noney than a poor cne, whiler the sensational, sneering or untruthful paper costs r lore in evil effects than any tnan or woman can i ells the news of the whole world in a spirit of afford to risk. THE PALLADIUM good will, good humor, independeni and justice. It tells the truth smiling. T hat is why it has become the greatest falnily paper in Wayne county," A SUPERB NEWS SERVICE THE-RICHMOND PALLADIUM'S NEWft SERVICE employs the largest number of re porters in Richmond, and the largest number of correspondents scattered over Wayne county. To itsihvn corls of keen-eyed news gatherers is added the vast news service of the Publishers tress Association, covering every part of the inhab- Ited world. Why not get the tfenefit of this trained army of experts yourself by f. reading thcdaily PALLADIUM; T FOR TflE PUBLIC GOOD. ' THE EDITORIAL COLUMNS OF TH PALLADIUM are shaped by one controlling idea the public, good. This paper s Republican in politics, standing for what is best in its party regardless of any special cliques, or factions. ; It is for such men as Presi ; dent Roosevelt and Senator Ejeveridge, and against such betrayers of a people's irust as Senator Aldrich or Senator Depew. i BEST PAPER FOR BUSINESS MEN. THE FINANCIAL AND COMMERCIAL DEPARTMENTS of the PALLADIUM are to compre- t t hensive and trustworthy that hundreds of farmers and business men prefer thi , paper to all others on this account. The market reports are more complete and authoritive'than any other in Richmond or vicinity. 1 . L THE DEPARTMENT OF SPORTS is a good test of the tone of a paper. The PALLA DIUM prints all the sporting fie ws worth reading, but bars out objectionable matter, and gives preference to wholesale amateur and college sports in the season. THE DRAMATIC AND MUSICAL COLUMNS are written by seasoned crities who know how to make their writings flewsy as well as authorative. The result is that their . critiques are not only saund but also interesting. ? FOR WOMEN AS WELL AS MEN. a WOMEN PREFER THE PALLADIUM because it contains more things of real interest to them than any other paper, fits suggestions for the household and boudoir, its so ciety columns, its religious nfws, its fashions, receipts and menus, these are some of the attractions for feminine readers. The whole paper is written for women as well as for men. Try it and see. THE CARTOONS AND ILLUSTRATIONS always have been of a high order, helping to make x each page attractive to the eye. The PALLADIUM was the first paper in Richmond J. to install a dailv cartoon service, and one which could be appreciated by men and women alike. THE PALLADIUM HAS A LARGE CIRCULATION among the intelligent people of Richmond and the surrounding country. It goes into more than 2,100 homes every week day, and this number is constantly increasing; WHY? Because it is a great, clean, live newspaper of character and purpose. Because it wears well as a friend in the home. Right now is the best time to make it a regular morninp visitor at your door if it isn't such already. Read The Richmond Palladium For All The News of The Day. Symbol of the Tyranny- and Ratfa Ifsineu of Modern BaslnrM. No single subject in architecture Is more generally and anxiously discuss ed nowadays than the skyscraper. No construction of Iron and stone is re garded with so much doubt and pessi mism as a necessity, but an evil one. It Is an overgrown giant usurping the dimensions of a cathedral, a royal palace or a house of assembly a struc ture intended to stand alone and domi nate the smaller and humMer things about, but instead of remaining sol itary and dignified it shoulders mon sters next it like mean houses in a row, turns streets into canyons, back yards into wells, cutting off light and air from all lower structures and from other tall buildings. The sun refuses to shine into Its lower stories, and even the winds of heaven rebel aerainst it. It is the stark and concrete expression of the tyranny and ruthlessness of modern business. Yet it is here as a condition, not a theory. It rises and multiplies in ev ery city, and many who read these words have their places of business in a skyscraper and spend a goodly por tion of their waking hours within, so convenient is it. and such a saving of wearisome stair climbing are its ele vators. Not one of tho architects who most deplore and despair of its artistic problems but would jump at the oppor tunity of building the highest that could be made to stand and frown in solently down on the roofs below. Not one but would, for the sake of the fat commission and the glory, do his best to get out the complete working draw ings as soon as he possibly could to satisfy his client's baste and save him from the loss of rent not received and taxes paid out that would accrue with every day's delay. Not one would in sist upon months or years to think over and digest the problem that such an outlay as goes into one of these steel structures calls for in these days not only of great buildings, but of great building. Craftsman. A FEW WANTS. DAMES AND DAUGHTERS, The Walla of Cadla. The historic walls of Cadiz are being pulled down. It has long been the dream of the people of Cadiz to demol ish these picturesque but useless walls to make room for factories and modern buildings. This dream is not without interest to the foreign traveler, since it includes the laying out of gardens and building of modern hotels. It is pro posed to utilize the material obtained in lengthening existing piers and re claiming land from the sea, thus en abling vessels to load and discharge cargo alongside of wharves instead of as now by means of lighters in the often ruffled waters of the bay. The advantage of this to the desired revival of trade in Cadiz cannot be overestimated. Some Dark Statistics. The number of homicides and deaths by violence In the United States in 1905 was 9,212 as against 8,482 in 11)04; suicides, 9,082 as against 9,240 in 1904; killed on steam railroads in 1905, 3,142; injured, 15,904; killed on electric and elevated railrouds, 404; injured, 2.G22. The:.e statistics, col lected by the Chicago Tribune, are un official, but perhaps they are none the less trustworthy on that account. We murder and manslaughter nine times as many as the Germans, four times as many as the English, Scotch and Welsh. America seems to be a little careless, to put it mildly. Every body's Magazine. Lord Kelvin's Ignorance. Lord Kelvin has Just celebrated his birthday. Though one of the most eminent of the world's scientists. Lord Kelvin has a modest view of his own attainments. He once wralked incog nito through some electrical works and asked a workman the simple question, "What is electricity?" "I am sure I don't know, sir," tho man replied. "Well, I don either," said Lord Kel vin. He said the other day that, though he had studied hard through fifty years of experimental investiga tion, he could not help feeling that he really knew no more than he knew when he first began. Condenaina- Milk. The idea of condensing milk to make it keep better occurred first to a French chemist named Appert in 1827. Seven years later the method of evaporating the milk in rarefied air to prevent it from reaching the boiling point was first used. Commercially the process was first exploited In the United States, where there are at present about fifty factories, which dispose of 200,000,000 pounds of condensed milk a year, val ued at over $12,000,000. In Switzer land there is a company which keeps 800 cows and sells over 16,000,000 bot tles of condensed milk annually. A Bor and a Red Tie. A youth who appeared at a public school at Leipsic wearing a red tie ' was ordered by his teachers to take it off. He refused to do so, and a po liceman was called, who confiscated the tie, and the youth was indicted un der a law of 1S49 for wearing republic- j an colors, which were "calculated to offend loyal subjects and incite to a breach of the peace." The Judge or dered the prisoner's acquittal, but cau- j tioned him against any repetition of his offense. America's 13,000,000 mpaprri. A bulletin recently made public at the census bureau in Washington shows that 19.624.757 copies of daily newspapers, or one for every four per sons, are turned out each week day in the United States. On Sundays the number printed is 11,539.521. The total amount charged for advertising in 1905 was 1145.531,811. The capital in vested in printing and publishing Is $354,021,339 Harper's Weekly.

Among the 80,000 negroes in New York city there are fifty-three Protes tant churches.. Bishop Warren A. Chandler of At lanta will participate In the forthcom ing Methodist conferences in China, Korea and Japan. A fund of $1,000 has been subscrib ed by the churches In Hawaii to com memorate in some way the missionary pioneers from this country.

Prince August Wilhelm, fourth son of Emperor William, it Is said, will visit this country nt the end of a thor ough university career in Germany.

She can weave, and one of her photograxtfi represents hor seated at a loom. ANIMAL ODDITIES. The parrot appreciates music more than any other of the lower animals. The wren often makes a dozen nests, leaving all but one unfinished and un used. The prairie dog is one of the roost dainty of animals. It makes for itself a fresh bed of grass or straw every night. A new species of rats has been dis covered In South America that have phosphorescent skins, which burn with a terrifying greenish glare at night. In the daytime they look like ordinary rats. POLITICAL QUIPS. Lions and Bicycle Rhodesia iions are afraid of bicycles. A prospector from Australia was cy cling in that country recently when he suddenly met a full grown lion. "Whether te thought my bicycle was an infernal machine," he says, "or whether he recognized me as an Aus tralian and something to be avoid ed.
