A SATURDAY SERMON. THE COREY CASE. Rejoice with the wife of thy youth. Let her be as the loving hind and pleasant roe. jt-roverDS :is-l. This advice was given by a man who knew what he was talking about. He Is credited with having had seven hun dred wives of his own and he was cer tainly qualified to speak on the subject of matrimony. His advice came from a tremendous amount of experience. Solo mon's proneness to get married is the one fact that might cast doubt upon his great wisdom. But notwithstanding Solomon's ex perience and advice, men have been act ing directly contrary to that advice down to this very moment. The case of knifed a very good friend of the printer, i -fimmet citizen, There is a great deal of fault-finding with the vertical system of writing, Perhaps it is justified. But if you were ever a printer on a country newspaper you would appreciate vertical writing. j KANSAS COMMENT THE HOPEFUL, SIGNS, -. -We are living under changed con ditions.

Many another man who has had the helpfulness and inspiration of a loyal, loving wife in the struggling years of his career, has base ly deserted her for another when pros perity has come to them.

There was less money lost on Thurs day's election than usual. This is authentic. What sort of a chump will the next president of the steel trust make of himself? Anybody wishins an all-summer's Job might apply for a place on the Haywood Jury. Of course. Secretary Wilson meant all ritht when he endorsed Kansas hard Turkey wheat. Dr. William J. Long ought to be grateful for the advertising President Roosevelt has given him. One thing that bothers the average man is how the Standard Oil company ever invented so many ways of break ing the law. Considering his name, it is no great surprise that Patrick Calhoun, the San Francisco street car magnate, hit back when he was called a liar. Cyrus Leland denies that there is a truce between Senator Long and him self. Senator Long may have fixed up a truce, but your Uncle Cyrus hasn't. Abe Ruef says he pleaded guilty in order to keep his family from worry ing. Must be it won't worry his fam ily to have Abe eo to the penitentiary It is to be hoped that the commis sion men who handle the fruit crop in the cities will note what i9 happening to the various ice trusts from time to time. Kansas City is looking for a design for a new city seal, and the Atchison Globe rises to suggest a picture show ing Kansas City riding on the neck of Kansas. Kansas City gets the next general assembly of the Presbyterian church. but what Kansas City is really fishing for is the next Republican national convention. "Seriously now," says the Lawrence Journal, "why not F. S. Jackson for governor ?" Chiefly because Kansas needs him in the attorney general's of fice awhile longer. President Roosevelt doesn't call Dr. Long, the animal story writer, "that short ugly word," but it amounts to the same thing. He says Dr. Long's tores are false to nature. In 1875, according to government reports, the bank deposits of the coun try were only two million dollars. Evi dently it has not been so very long since nearly everybody kept it in a sock.

But the reason is clear. This state has paid her eastern indebtedness and 2an"ow do business in her own name. Besides, her farmers have raised big crops and have wheat in the bin left over from previous years. Take this city for example. A few years ago the prospects for a poor wheat crop would have caused all building to cease. Builders would have waited until conditions for a bumper crop were favorable. Now, how different; building goes on just the same. Two large business blocks are under way and a third under serious considera tion. Residence property is building and best of all, the residences we are Duiiaing this year are larger and more expensive than we have built for years. The town is showing signs of growth in many lines. Railroad business is growing, bank deposits continue to grow, residence property is all filled up. These favorable conditions pre vail m spite of a somewhat limited wheat crop and a temperance city administration. Arkansas City Traveler. the slant system in the days of their youth, usually write miserably. The printer has a hard time making out some of their scrawls. This slant writ ing is the cause of considerable extra work on the part of the recording angel. But nearly every country paper has among its correspondents several young people who . have learned the vertical system of writing. It is a pleasure to the printer to get hold of their "copy, because it is uniformly clear and dis tinct. The vertical system may be slow. THE COLLECTORS.

JOURNAL ENTRIES youth, will su jly reap a harvest of bitterness and unhappiness. There may be a very few exceptions to the rule, but even that is doubtful. In the very na ture of things the man who commits such an atrocity is a contemptible scoundrel who is not worthy of the love of a good woman, and both he and the adventuress who wins him from his family will in time suffer great disap pointment In each other. Such an end is freely predicted for the Corey-Gilman episode. Still, this Corey case has its useful ness. It has emphasized the baseness of the man who wtll treat the wife of his youth as has the president of the steel trust and such cases are by no means rare and It has disgusted the world by the lack of respect for the marriage vow that W. E. Corey and his new actress- bride have shown. The minister who performed the marriage brought down on his head a storm of indignant pro tests and he has been dismissed by his congregation. Already he has repented his part in the marriage. The press has severely censured the procedure, a great church has forbidden its clergy to sanction such unions, the public has had its eyes opened and Its conscience aroused on the subject, and reform in divorce laws may result. The Corey case has its lessons. The vulgarity and immorality of it are censured every where. In this connection, a recent editorial utterance of the Chicago Chronicle is of Interest. It is especially significant in view of the fact that the Chronicle is usually regarded as an organ of wealth. It says: "The ordinary vulgarian of the boy's hands. It is believed to be fairly safe to put your thin ones on now, but it would be well to keep the others where you can grab them at a moment s no tice until after the Fourth of July.

A Saline county farmer proposes to cut his wheat, even if he has to do it with a lawn mower. The experiment station of the State Skunk! Agricultural station will make tests to determine the much-debated question or tne errect or rrozen alfalfa on stock. Good news from the Lawrence Jour nal: "Douglas county Is going to have an average crop of strawberries. Its other small fruit is almost a crop. The wheat is in as good condition as could be expected. The fruit has been killed but everything else Is in fine shape. Let us quit howling calamity. There is nothing to it.

He will claim that such a rate is remunerative, as shown by the situation in Nebraska. If this is demonstrated to the satisfac tion of the railroad commissioners they undoubtedly will order such a rate put Into effect and Kansas passengers will enjoy the lower fare whether they happen to want to travel as much as BOO miles In a year or not. After all this is the proper way to handle the rate question. The state board has the time and the means to investigate the fairness or unfairness of rates which the legislature has not and they should be the ones to handle this phase of the railroad regulation. Hutchinson News. VACATIONS. A vacation is a good thing. A man can work better with an occasional week off. Sunday, when properly spent, puts new life into people. The work a man follows on week days should be given up altogether on Sun day, if possible. The man who works steadily enjoys his vacation the most. Little real good comes through a va cation to the man who fools away his time or loafs on his Job. Holton Signal. THE EVENING STORY AN EAGLE SCREAM. Corey, the. steel magnate, married his now divorced wife when his salary was but $40 per month. If that salary had not been increased into the thou sands he would never have sought a divorce, or if he had, Mabelle Gilman would never have married him. Wichita Eagle. JUSTICE TO STUBBS. There is this to say in Stubbs' favor: Suppose he is working selfishly to make himself United States senator, he seems to be willing to submit his chances to the Republicans of the state, instead of to a few political traf fickers. Stubbs is not our choice for senator by a long shot,. yet we feel like doing him Justice. Holton Recorder, Where Two Paths Met. (By Ina Wright Hanson.) In the birch blossom path I saw her first, and my mind was full of annoy ance because my sister, who kept my house, should invite a girl to visit her, and then insist that it was my duty to help entertain her. I would do noth ing of the sort. I was thinking, when a turn in the white-blossomed pathway brought her to my view. She was slender, and! had a great mass of brownish-yellow hair, pinned up with gold pins, one of which glowed sardonically at me with its topaz eye. While I was wondering why she didn't comb her hair smooth ly, she turned, and her eyes, of a won derful vivid blue, seemed to look down into my very soul. "Stand perfectly still, Mr. Angove and shut your eyes. Is there anything so sweet in this wide world as a birch path in springtime? Don't open them, Mr. Angove. I want you to get the fragrance uninterrupted by any other sense. Why I should have stood there with my foolish eyes shut tight I don't know, but I did, until she gave me permission to look at the white feath ery sprays, and at her. Then quite sociably we strolled the rest of the way together. I began to feel inter ested in knowing what she would say when we came to the end of the path, and she saw Pittsburg type ignorant, Illiterate, new- f e quick results out of a primary elec- iiuu iciw. ii ttisu mutcaies, says FROM OTHER PENS ly enriched excites ridicule rather than resentment.

He does hot know how to spend his money, yet he wants everyone to know that he has no end of It. He plays fantastic tricks before high, heaven and though angels may weep mortals laugh at him.

That was certainly a funny "break" which Secretary Wilson made in writ ing to Secretary Coburn about Turkey Red wheat. It Is Incomprehensible that he should have been so absolutely ignorant of the Kansas wheat crop. Dur ing the years that he has been at the head of the United States department of agriculture. Secretary Wilson has done a great work for the American farmer. This work shows him to be a man of broad ideas and extensive knowledge of things agricultural. Why, then, did he not know that for many years Turkey Red has been the principal wheat crop of Kansas. Even when he was ex perimenting with It up in Iowa back in the nineties, Kansas was raising Turkey Red, 70,000,000 bushels at a time. Yet Secretary Wilson is glad to note that "it is finding its way Into Kansas," apparently as a result of his experiments, judging from tha tone of his letter.

"At first you are going to address me as Miss Britland," she replied promptly. - "Afterward you will say Frances, and at the end you will call me Caprice." "Why in the world should I call you Caprice?" I asked. "I don't know," she said. "Don't you ever say things just as if some body inside of you were saying them with your own tongue?" My reply to this amazing question was hindered by the ending of the birch bushes. We stood facing a little pagoda of white marble. I looked at the girl. Her hands were tensely clasped, her red lips were quivering. "It's like walking down the pathwpy of Love, and suddenly coming to the very Temple of Love itself 1". she ex claimed. I frowned. Why should my, sister prattle to strangers of our ancestors' conceptions? She seemed to divine my thoughts. "Why do you look at me like that? What is it? What does It mean?" I showed her the inscription on the worn threshold "Temple of Love" and with a sudden swift grace she knelt above the lettering. Then she sprang tip. "Come, Mr. Angove," she cried gay- ly. "I will run you a race. So back along the birch-lined path we ran like two children, and only my sister's amused smile at the end of the race reminded me of my forgotten dig nity. I spent the rest of the day among my books and alone. Next morning Miss Britland and selected a walk opposite the birch path. This was a straight path through an avenue of stately pines Yesterday the girl had been fanciful or merry; this day she was neither. She walked sedately by me, talking quite learnedly of the future of ra dium. I began to see why I might sometime call her Caprice. "This is the path of the Pines." said, when we had exhausted radium "We should have taken this one first for it leads straight and true as the compass needle to the temple; while the birch path meanders foolishly this way and that, and makes one many unnecessary steps to reach the same place. , One welcomes unnecessary steps when one walks with the spirit of the woods. she answered. Anyway, you should not have told me that this path leads to the same place. It would have been nicer for me to discover it for myself. "So it would," I answered humbly. "How shall I atone?" "By telling me of yourself," she replied. "There isn't much to - tell," I said. feeling pleased at her Interest. We sat in the pagoda, and for me at least it was the tpmple of love. Let he who will prate of long growing affection, to me love came as the sun rises suddenly over the mountain. I told her of my life as a boy in college, as a man in the business world till this estate came to me, neglected and long uninhabited. Another day I told her about the temple; how my ancestor had laid out these paths to typify his love for his fair young wife, and her love for him one path, quick and true as the com pass needle, the other sweet in its shy deflections, but ending Just as surely at the temple. 'What was the young wife s name? she asked. I don't . know. . His diary is full of hr beauty and sweetness and accom plishments, but he never mentions her name. He had his own names for her Sunbeam. Starlight. Heartease. Love like that should not die when the bodies of the lovers are dust." How do you know that it does?" she demanded. "How do you know but their souls are living again and loving just the same?" She had so many strange thoughts, this little Frances, and she had so many moods gay. serious, learned, childlike. . How I loved her! I could not .wait much longer to tell her so, but I seemed to lack the right words. One day in. the temple I had been long Hlent. though I had not realized it, till she interrupted my thoughts most saucily. " 'I wish that it could speak, for it ( looks so very kindly that its voice must" needs be pleasant.' she quoted. "It is going to speak," I said, turn ing suddenly toward her. but she pointed, laughing, toward the door. Down the path of the pines came my sister, eager, breathless, waving a letter. "A secret drawer In the wall, back of my wardrobe!" she gasped. "And three nights since she has been here, has Frances dreamed of finding letters!" I saw with a curious feeling the peculiar chirography of my ancestor. I read aloud: "Look under the threshold of the tem ple, thou men of my own. blood; but think not to appropriate to thyself what thou shalt find there. They are for her whom thou lovest as I loved my own Caprice." "Dig, dig!" exclaimed my slater, drop ping on her knees, and trying to pry up the step with her bare hands. "Don't sit there and stare at each other, you two. Let's find what's here!" It was not a hard task, for time had loosened the marble steps till they were easily removed. It was an exciting mo ment when my sister's eager hands dragged to view a small iron box. "Open It, brother!" she cried. "Jewels : cried the sweet, excited voice of my dear girl. I have always admired my sister, but never more than at that moment, when her curiosity must have been well-nigh uncontrollable. She cast one swift look at us two, then she started up the pine path. "I know that careless Martha is let ting the bread burn," she called back O'-er her dear motherly shoulder. I took a string of diamonds from the box, and put them around my sweet heart's neck. An amethyst In Its quaint setting I pinned at her white throat, a coronet of pearls I placed on her golden brown hair. On her slender, trembling I nut rines rubies, diamonds. e:.ieralds. On her pretty arms I hung bracelets of queer design; ana tnen i fastened her girdle dull gold, set with a great white opal which broke Into marvelous colors as my sweetheart touched it reverently. When I had fin ished she looked like a sweet, barbaric princess. I knelt before her, kissing her hand. - "AH yours, my queen," I whispered, "for I love you as he loved Caprice." "Maybe I am his Caprice," she an swered dreamily. "And maybe you are he." . "Tell me that you love me, dear, I pleaded. She put her flower-like face to mine. "My first thought of you and my last are the same, beloved," she answered. "And the thought Is this that you havn a heart for whose belated waking queens might keep vigil." "(Copyright ed, 1907, by Mary McKeon.) GLOBE SIGHTS. From the Atchison Globe.l Most people were baptized and vac cinated when they were little. When a little woman tells her weight. she is sure to say something about how "solid" she is. Occasionally an old man likes to talk of events long ago; "before I can re member," he says. A woman may be the one to start a love affair, but nine times out of ten it is the man who ends it. In accepting an invitation to a pic nic, a woman nearly always says, I hope the weather will be nice." You often hear impolite children criticised. Ever realize that there are a good many impolite grown people? Find out the secret hope of any man past middle age, and it is that he may be allowed at the last to go quickly. After a man and his wife pass 60, if any valuable gift is made them their children begin to wonder which one of them will get it. Some of these days the big maga zines will print pictures of the modern Madonna; she will be accompanied by a nurse .maid in uniform who will be giving the baby its bottle. After making a call at some houses, you feel that you didn't leave soon enough; you recall that all the mem bers of the family looked and acted as though they had something important to do as soon as you went away. When you go out to dinner and every little while see the children peeping in at the dining room door, it is a sign they are tired of waiting, and are won dering if you are not about ready to quit. Every man wants more credit than he deserves. But it is a foolish no tion: if you- have the reputation of being able to jump tnirty reet, ana are not able to do it, the time will come when you will be called upon to do it, and fail. When a show goes on the road. It us ually has an "angel;" that is a man who pays the loss in case of failure Have you an "angel?" Most people have. When the average man goes into a new venture he induces an "an gel" to go with him, to assist in pay ing the losses, if loss instead of profit results. Look around you, and - you will find hundreds of "angels;" men who receive salaries whether the busi ness profits or not. What an outrage a wolf is! A wo man works like a slave in raising chick ens and turkeys, and a wolf, a vagrant and thief, slips up in the night and carries oft the fruit of the woman's toil, There isn't the slightest excuse for a v.olf. yet he exists, and is rapidly mul tiplying. In every community there are instituions as useless and damag ing as the wolf, yet they cannot be gotten rid of.
