It means that Calumet i the best baking powder

And this means that Calumet produces the
mo aeucious, lightest, and purest
baking of all baking powders.
Doesn't that mean
everything to you?
Ithaca, N. T., Jan. 20. John Bur
roughs, the naturalist, who is visiting
here, believe that few millionaires are
really happy. He Is quoted in an in
terview as follows:
"I do not believe in the doctrine at
tributed to John D. Rockefeller that if
you want to make your wife happy all
you have to do is to give her plenty
01 money, l do not believe that posses
sion of money and happiness are syn
onymous. If Mr. Rockefeller has been
quoted correctly he is making a de
claration that I believe American wo
men and women ail over the world will
resent. They want love first of all if
tney are provided with the right in
stincts. 'I sat behind Jay Gould in school and
once he wrote a composition on a elate
for me when I needed ideas. That day
he needed 70 cents and I gave the sum
to him for two old school books. I saw
him later in life when he was worth 70
million dollars but I do not think he
was happy. The money fire was blaz
ing in his eyes, and I am sure it reach
ed his brain and consumed his life,
sending him to an untimely grave.
"The great problem of today is the
making of money. It is unquestion
ably the occupation that engages the
minds of the vast majority of people.
But from what I have seen of life and
those leading it, when one has obtain
ed a competency money is superfluous.
just like an excess of what is not need
ed to round out the figures and give it
a handsome appearance. Piling up
wealth then becomes like piling on flesh
and greatly hinders the enjoyment of
the pest things or this life.
"I know millionaires, and know very
few happy ones. True, Mr. Carn'eele
seems to be an exception because he is
different from many other rich men. He
Is trying to get rid of his money, and
ne taxes a Keen aeiignt in doing good
with it.
"But even when one disposes of
wealth, if there is the consciousness
that in acquiring it the weaker creatures
have been overcome and saddened, I
think there must be a tinge of regret
in helping others with this very fruit
that has been obtained at such cost.
"Money, of course, is necessary to
provide the comforts of existence, but
cultured people I say cultured people,
mind you can aouDtless be contented
with books when they cannot buy automobiles."

Fourteen Persons Reply to a Want
New York, Nov. 20. Whether indi
cative of hard times among the poor
or not, 14 persons, among them a frail
factory girl, were willing to sell their
blood for a transfusion operation upon
a patient at Mount Sinai hospital. The
applicants came to the institution in
response to an advertisement for "a
healthy man wishing to sell his blood
for transfusion to a dying patient." The
girl was informed that only men would
be accepted and after physicians had
examined the other applicants a man
employed in an Kast side tailor shop
was finally accepted. The transfusion
operation will be performed today, but
the price paid for the "blood of a
healthy man," is not known.

The fourth annual meeting of the
Kansas Fraternal Congress was held
at , the Knights & Ladies of Security
hall at the corner of Seventh and
Kansas avenue last evening and the
session was one of the stormiest in
the history of the organization. For
six long hours the fraternal legisla
tors met In session and most of the
time there was a continual fight be
tween the older and newer orders
. The purpose of the congress is to
unite socially and . fraternally the of
ficers and accredited representatives
of the fraternal beneficiary societies
doing business !n Kansas, to promote
the spirit of fraternity among the
membership of all fraternal
beneficiary societies and to improve
the business methods and to protect
and promote the interests of the
societies represented in the congress.
The latter clause to promote the In
terests of the societies was well car
ried out last evening and some of the
social side was exhibited but as a
whole the Fraternal Congress made a
noise like a lot of legislators fighting
over the changing of seats or a city
council quarreling over a street
naming proposition.
The main action of the Kansas
Fraternal Congress last evening was
to go on record as disapproving of
the taxation of fraternal order funds
and property and incidentally send a
little delegation to the legislature and
see that nothing in contrary to their
wishes would be pushed through both
houses. The legislature is given due
warning to watch out for the Kansas
Fraternal congressmen, 'iney nave
ideas of their own and they are not
afraid to mention them. A long dis
cussion was held last night concern
ing the taxation of fraternal funds
and property and all of the late de
cisions from the supreme courts were
brought back to life and used as
models of defiance. The cases of the
Masons and Odd Fellows especially
were cited. Neither of these orders
belong to the congress.
In talking of the taxation matters it
was decided that all the property of
the orders that did not draw a
revenue should ' be exempt from
taxation. For instance if a lodge
owns a building and leases it for of
fice or store room use thereby gaining
a revenue the property was as other
property and could be subject to
taxation. But if theorder was con
ducting a beneficiary home of some
kind and was conducting it for the use
of a great benevolent and charitable
cause in the broad and legal sense
the protection .of the home, the
widow, the orphan, It Is different. At
any rate the Kansas Fraternal Con
gress will fight the tax law in the
legislature and as one of the mem
bers said before the convention last
"We are just as good and just as
wise as those men in the legislature
and I am sure that they will recognize
our cause."
Calls It Self Admiration Sotdety.
One of the members of the congress
made sensational charges when he
arose and said in loud tones that the
Kansas Fraternal Congress was noth
ing but a private means of gaining
honor. He said all the congress did
was to gather every year and elect
officers and then have the news
printed with their names at the top.
He said in part:
This is nothing but a self admiration
society. We come here every year,.
elect officers, be . 'big' fellows and go
home to ten tnem an aoout it. I don't
take any stock in this talking about
'in union there Is strength.' Every one
of us will work our hardest for our
own lodge and there will not be any
'union.' "
These charges were taken without a
whimper by the congress and when the
gentleman sat down there was not a
word of objection or a faint sign of
hand-clapping. Before the meeting was
over this same gentleman grabbed his
hat and with a grumble about "wind
jamming" he left the room in a rage
There is evidently one man who does
not have any use for the Kansas Fra
ternal congress.
But this .was not all that happened
last night. The annual fight between
the older orders and the newer orders
on the adoption of a uniform rate
among the lodges came in on time. The
fight for a uniform rate was led by Wil
son B. Kirkpatrick. who is the president
of the Knights and Ladies of Secur
ity and who holds about the only $6,000
job on Kansas avenue. He fought like
a tiger for the uniform rate last night
but he had too many enemies. While
he was waging his hardest fight with
papers and documents in both hands, a
number of the congressmen gathered
in the corner and fixed up their plan
for defense. But they did not go far
as the general audible verdict . was
that Kirkpatrick had personal rea
sons for getting the uniform rate law
through the lodges."This was but a part
of the mud-slinging at the meeting of
the Kansas 'fraternal congress last
night. Since their meeting the word
"fraternal" has taken on a different
meaning in fact it is an antonym and
the congressmen made it so.
About the only happy man last night
was the president who sat in his chair
and laughed during the whole fight- He
seemed to take the whole matter as a
fight between lodges with personal
thrusts added and a little old time en
mity thrown In as good measure. There
was a motion for adjournment two
hours before the meeting was ended and
the motion was brought before the
house every ten minutes after it was
first made. But the fight between Mr.
Kirkpatrick and some of the younger
generations became so fierce and so
personal that the members of the con
gress missed their suppers to hear the
end of it, and then Kirkpatrick lost his
Attack Jackson and Court.
But the lodges and members were not
the only ones to receive the lemons last
night. Attorney General Jackson and
the supreme court came in for their
share. One of the members in par
ticular said that If the attorney gen
eral made a certain statement or if the
supreme court gave a certain verdict
they were "wrong in every way." It
would have been a good education for
some of the state officials to have at
tended the meeting of the Kansas Fra-
ternal congress last night. They would
have learned some things that they
have been accused of not knowing. .
But after all of the fight, the uniform
rate law adopted by the National Fra
ternal congress was thrown to the
ground by the Kansas Fraternal con
gress. They would have nothing to do
with It in spite or the presence or Mr,
Kirkpatrick and his faithful follower,
It was an interesting meeting to say the
least and adjourned last evening to
meet again In Topeka next January.

The election of officers last night re
sulted as follows:
President George C. Lockwood, Em
Vice president Thomas Sheard of

iid Laxative
for Baby Free
The child of today' Is the parent of
the future, and whether it grows up
healthy and strong, or puny and weak,
depends upon the intelligence of its
parents, for most children are born
into the world healthy, but thousands
become future weaklings between birth
and the age of ten, when the parents
are still in greatest control.
The prime cause of trouble is in the
stomach. A baby that is digesting its
food seldom cries and always looks cheer
ful: the little child whose stomach is good
romps and plays and never whines: the
growing child learns well at school and is
eager for fun if its head Is clear and its
stomach light, and that means if it has
no constipation.
The best and safest way to cure any
irregularity, of the stomach and bowels
in children is by the use of Dr. Caldwell's
Syrup Pepsin. This is a liquid laxative
wonderful in its effect as Mrs. John W.
Dunham. Apple Creek. O.. Mrs. H. L.
Cullam, Plainville, Ind., and numerous
others can testify who Klve it to their
children with extraordinary results.
A bottle only costs 50 cents or $1 ac
cording to the size you want, and even
one 50-cent bottle, will do a wonderful
amount of good in a family. It can be
given to any member of the family in
constipation, sour stomach, indigestion,
torpid liver, dyspepsia. " heartburn, sick
headache and similar digestive troubles.
It never gripes or strangles like pills,
tablets, salts and powders, which should
not be given to children, women or old
If you have a child or other member of
the family who needs, but has never used
this grand laxative tonic, send your name
and address to the doctor and a free trial
bottle will be sent to your home. In this
way you can find out what it will do
without personal expense.
If there is anything about
your ailment that you don't
understand, or if you want
any medical advice, write
o.ithe doctor, and he will
answer vou fully. There is

of Congressman William A.' Calderhead

hard spell of sickness in the fall and
from this he did not iuny recover De

within the last few days when he was
compelled to return to his home for rest
before taking part in the fight on the

Tokio, Jan. 20. The nature of the
matter cabled from Japan quoting the
Japanese sensationalist' press in re
gard to the anti-Japanese bills pre
sented to the state legislature in Cal

leading newspapers and American
residents in Japan, who assert that the
selections sent out were taken from
the columns of the least responsible
newspapers in Japan, whose real char
acter is not understood in the United

was done intentionally and that the
articles are calculated to rearouse feel

The June '09 class of the Tpeka high
school scored a tremendous hit in the
realms of amateur performances, in
their presentation at the Grand last
night of "Out Bluffed." a musical com
edy with a college setting. The play is
a good one for high school perform
ances. It is a play constructed along
the same lines as George Ade's "Just
Out of College" and has a well defined
plot for a musical comedy. The staging
of the play was a feature. Local set
tings were used for the second and third
acts. The second act was a scene in
the -Midwinter in which many of the
local booths were represented. The third
scene had a mythical setting, a scene
in the Topeka ticket office of the To-peka-Southwestern,
The musical numbers were well sung
and the dancing stunts well executed,
and were unique and savored not of the
monotonous type so frequently seen.
The cast was probably the largest ever
seen in a high school production and
there were some stars in the rough,
among the number of "would-be's."
The acting of Hale Kills, Annetta
Nichol, Marjorie Whitney, Esther Rodg
ers, and Kate Bacon was the best of
the cast.
Miss Nellie Lincoln, who has charge
of all the high school theatricals was
the producer of "Out Bluffed, ana ner
work was characterized by its usual
completeness even to the smallest de
tails. Miss Lincoln improves with ev
ery effort and last nignt sne am more
than she -has ever done before. The
presentation was a creditable compli
ment to her ability.
The cast of the play was composea
of the following: Robert McGiffert,
Hale Ellis, Alfred Bartel, George Grice,
Clinton Cowgill. Archie West, Walter
Wellhouse, William Smith, uane bearie,
Warren Crumbine, Eugene Harshbar
