The refusal of our pressman to use the color deck on this illustration, is party responsible for the lack of likeness. James from Ilaiwlins has red hair, but he has a lot of gray matter under that thatch. Mr. Malone came to Topeka two years as;o, when Democrats were scarce in the house of commons. He had some Ifgislation in his system, but being a Democrat, had no chance to get the same recorded on the fair pages of the ses sion laws. His perfectly good measures were kicked in the slats by the bloated majority, and James did not score very heavily during that session. Neverthe less, the Rawlins county people sent Jimmy back again this year, and as Democrats are more numerous than they were two years ago. and less prone to go batting off after false gods, we Tiave a hope that Mr. " will get tome results fnm his honest efforts.

Dr. Goddard, of Leavenworth, decid ed to go home Saturday afternoon, ad rest up over Sunday. But before leav ing, he desired to pass his bill in re gard to the voters at the National Sol diers' Home. Knowing that he wanted to catch a train, the majority of the house proceded to badger the good natured doctor by picking holes in his bill and making signs which looked like an inquest over the measure would be next on the program. They gave Doc a bad hour, and almost sprained his temper. Perspiration gathered on his noble brow when the legal lights began to load his measure with amend ments. They closed the Roman holiday by reporting out his measure in a sub dued form, and the doctor felt better. Doc Goddard is a good old scout, and the whole house likes him, but the favorite indoor sport of that body is badgering him to the breaking point. If he gets away from the gang with out losing 50 pounds in weight not to mention his watch and other portable property he may consider himself the luckiest Democrat from Leavenworth. Willie Allie White is displeased with the senate. He candidly admits in an editorial, that the senate is not doing right. By doing right, he means doing things according to the schedule he drew up last summer. Wishing to be just as candid as Willie Allie White. this department, after looking over saia senate, wishes to ataiit that the upper house is NOT following the White schedule. But we desire to ask just why the senate should follow tho White schedule? If it is his senate, why doesn't he take cliajp-o and kick it into shape; and if it is not his senate, what is he beefing about, anyway? AMUSEMENTS. MEMORY OF LINCOLN. Monster Sleeting at Auditorium for Great Emancipator. It is interesting to note how the news of an attraction's success precedes it along its route, as made evident by the advance sale of seats for Madame Sherry, the big New York and Chicago musical success, coming to the Grand tomorrow night. At the Grand opera house on Wed nesday nipht. will be presented The Chocolate Soldier. The play came into New York a year ago under the direc tion of Fred Wiiitney quite unheralded and captured the metroDOlis. The run was so lang that the attraction comes here in its second season. It is de scribed as a typical Viennese opera bourfe. The scenes are. laid in the pic turesque Dragoman Pass of Bulgaria and Mr. Whitney has brought all of the costumes, embroideries and uniforms directly from that vicinity. Lyman H. Howe's Travel Festival gives a wider angle to the mental lenses of more people than any other attraction before the American public. It is a real force the onward march of civilization. For it teaches one na tion to look upon another from the human standpoint. It will be at the Grand on Friday and Saturday with a matinee on Saturday. The attraction at the Grand next Monday will be Henry B. Harris' pro duction of The Traveling Salesman by James Forbes, who wrote The Chorus Lady and The Commuters. DECREE FOR MISS GOODRICH. "Americans have a long list of great men to, whom they point with pride and reverence," said Dr. F. L. Love land, at the Lincoln memorial held Sunday afternoon in the auditorium. "But towering above them all is that majestic figure of the man whose fame the world recognizes today Abraham Lincoln. "Abraham Lincoln did not fight for slavery. He fought for American civ ilization and for the union. I would to God. that there were more states men like him. There are two elements that are absolutely basic in American life. If the American republic is. to endnrp thp twn thinvo . - n -v 1 i'L ojai . They are courage and conscience in public life. Abraham Lincoln had them both. "Abraham Lincoln was the great commoner. Everything he did was giantesque and everything he said was in great figures. All his utterances were m measured verse, as is the case when a great mind is working under great stress. He was brought to thi by a love of a great country and by the loyalty of the great army of boys in blue who served him. "In no place do the boys show their loyalty and love for their leader more than right here in Topeka. Their tribute to his Tnmrtr o I . : j ' o a. laskiug glory and a living monument of love to wic feicat emancipator. The meeting was under the auspices of the Lincoln Post of the G A. R. At the close of an introductory address by the Rev. Charles A. Finch of the First Christian church all of those in the audience who had seen Lincoln were asked to rise. About 35 present mostly old soldiers responded. The musical program was appre ciated by the old soldiers present. Mrs. Charles Riegn Scoville, wife of the famous evangelist, sang a medlev of patriotic airs. The Misses Wyatt sang a song written for the occasion by Capt. J. G. WTaters. entitled "Lin coln's Day, and Lincoln's Land." The Rev. John W. Waldron pronounced the invocation, and the Rev. Mr. Finch the benediction. The ushers for the occasion were the members of Battery B in full uni form. Motions were passed thanking Dr. Loveland for his strong address and the Christian church for the use of the auditorium for the occasion. The attendance was about 2,500.

Sergeant Sid ney Sears, crack shot of the metro politan police department of Sti Louis, challenged to a revolver competition by William McCready, a negro police man of Pittsburg, Pa., drew the color line today, in penning his refusal to meet the easterner. Iowa Ad Clubs Convene. Des Moines, Feb. 13. The Ad clubs of Iowa are in convention here toiiay. S. C. Dobbs of Atlanta, Ga., national pres ident, Herbert S. Houston of New York and Wilbur D. Nesbit of Chicago will speak at the banquet tonight. A lady called on the Root Juice scientist and told him that even after Root Juice had cured her of stubborn case of indigestion and nervous weak ness, she had to plead with her hus band a long time befcre she could per suade him to try it. She said: "Mv husband suffered for years with his stomach and kidneys. He had severe headaches every change of the weath er, and his back pained him very much. He had to get up many times during the night on account of his kid neys, and of late years the lightest food would ferment in his stomach and bowels and the formation of gas caused him to bloat so that he could hardly button his vest. He tried so many medicines that he had lost heart, but I finally persuaded him to take Root Juice, and after taking the first bottle he felt so much better that he went to the drug store and bought six more bottles, and has just finished taking the last bottle. I never saw such a change in a man in my life. He weighs twenty pounds more than he ever did, and can eat like a horse, and never complains of any trouble any more. He told me that he would not take the finest farm in the state for the great good Root Juice did for him." Numerous people of this locality are praising Root Juice very highly, and it certainly Is deserving of the praise ;t is getting all over the country. It soon creates a good appetite, tones, heals and strengthens the liver, kidneys and stomach, and gives nature a chance. a good reason, which all who suffer should investigate. They are glad to tell about it at Arnold drug store, 523 Kansas avenue. STARTSJUT WELL Scoyille Evangelistic Meetings Draw Large Crowds. Fifty-Two Converts Credited to Sunday Meeting. With a record of a total attendance for the day of seven thousand and fifty-two converts the Sunday sessions f or tne great scoviue revival meeting were adjudged a success. In the morn ing the Christian churches of the city held a union service at the Auditorium, and at night many persons from the various denominations of the city as well as nonchurch members were pres ent to hear Dr. Charles Reign Scoville, whose fame as revivalist preceded him, standing room being almost at a premium. The meeting Sunday night was heralded by the band of Shawnee camp No. 2800 of the Modern Woodmen which played on Kansas avenue. Later the band played at the Auditorium. The song service was an enthusiastic one. W. P. Rockwell varied the pro cedure by asking the men to whistle the air and the women to hum it the same time. The large chorus on the platform helped out materially in the singing. The solos of Mrs. Scoville were greatly appreciated as were the duets by Mr. and Mrs. W. P. Rock well. Dr. Scoville took his text from the fourteenth chapter of Matthew. He told graphically the story of the be heading of John the Baptist. "When a bad woman gets after a man," he declared, "that man had better make for the tall timber. Women are schemers, God bless them. They are good folks though they are blessings. "Figuratively I can see John the Baptist as he pointed out Herod's com panion and told him that the woman did not belong to him. I can see the angry flush that must have come over that woman's cheek and the murder ous look she darted at him. At that very moment she resolved to revenge herself and you know how she did it. "For a wonder she kept things to herself. Not one of the neighbor wo men knew anything about her plan3. Herod was going to entertain and probably every one ' of them were awaiting with expectancy an invita tion. The day of the party came and there was much wine drinking. The orchestra was not like the one we have here with us this evening. The more wine the members drank the faster the music became. , "Then came Salome the dancing girl. Herod was on fire with the wine that he had consumed, and finally he made his offer of the gift of half his king dom. The plan of the woman was bearing fruit. 'Give me the head of John the Baptist, she cried. I can picture Herod's big red face turning white, but the drunken Herod yielded to the wish. "John the Baptist's head came off. Did the girl want it? No. She took it to her mother and all the guests at the party possibly remarked, 'Oh, I see,' and understood the cause of the great entertainment. "I pity the dancing damsel, the drunken king and the wicked woman. I have never said a mean thing about a man that - drinks. I've seen some mighty mean things about the saloon, but not the sateorrkepper save the man. " ' " - "T tell the people that the only ob jection I have to the American bedbug is the way he gets his living. I would say it was a nice bug If it got its nv !nj in some other way. "If I had one message for the preach ers of today I would say don't come before your people with a subject but With an object. The great big wicked, aching, stingy, wicked world wants the ministers to tea oi tne worm s it. . "Now you get this: The Bible will been von awav from sin or sin will keep you away from the Bible. That man down inside tnat sees aim uuut.i is the one that Christ gave his life for.' SaturAav -merit Dr. Scoville talked on the value of prayer, but he said that prayer is not sufficient in the Chris tian life. "I am a great believer in prayer," said he. Jesus prayed all . . - - l livarcul fhat Brrefl.t n.gnt oeiuie uc ' " sermon on the Mount. Prayer succeeds where everything else falls." YHITLOCK GIVES BOND.

The memorial service in commemor ation of the lives of' Jonathan Thomas and Lewis H. Greenwood was attended by a large gathering of the friends of Washburn college and the . men who were potent factors in the upbuilding of this excellent institution of higher education. "The greatest reward of service is the Joy it brings to the giver," said President Frank K. Sanders. "It has a reflex influence in his life, becoming an incentive to that which is broad and fine. "Mr. Thomas seemed to me to be a distinctively happy man, not in an un discriminating way, but because he felt that it was a Joy to live and to have a share .in the large interests of his community. Mr. Greenwood, too, with all his reticence and self command was. willing to place himself so unre servedly at the service or nis aima mater, because he keenly felt the sat isfaction of contributing to the build ing up of a great and worthy enterprise. "Mr. Thomas become a trustee of Washburn college in 1901, and has ever since then given freely to the college of his energy, wise counsel ana ample means. His business judgment has ever been of very great value in deciding the practical problems of a rapidly growing institution. "He has built himself a monument at Washburn through which his life will continue to influence the lives of young men and women of generations yet to come. "Mr. Greenwood was graduated from Washburn in 1S90. He has been a trustee since 1895 and secretary of the corporation since 1901. During these sixteen years he rendered more service to Washburn than most men accomplish in a lifetime. In the ser vice of his alma mater he was inde fatigable, absolutely loyal and thor oughly dependable one so uncom plaining and so efficient that the work of the board of trustees came to cen ter in his office. Busy as was he al ways seemed to find time for Wash burn's interests and particularly for the consideration of individual inter ests." Judge T. F. Garver paid a tribute to the life of the late Jonathan Thomas, and Robert Stone told briefly of the excellent qualities of his former class mate, the late Lewis H. Greenwood. INHALES GAS TO DIE.

HOURS OF LAUGHTER 2 The Post-Office The Popular Magazine and the People rA provision has been add ed to the postoffice appro priation bill by the Senate postoffice committee with out proper "notice or public hearing. It provides for an unjust discriminatory and confiscatory tax on the Pop ular Magazines. By attach ing this provision to the postoffice appropriation bill at the eleventh hour, all op portunities for open discus sion and consideration by the people, . the publishers and the senate was cut off. It was an un-American, star chamber proceeding, accom plished under presidential and political coercion. If this bill is passed with the provision which practi cally exempts from taxation magazines which have not spoken boldly on public questions, many of the Popu lar periodicals will be put out of business altogether, and the others without ex ception will be seriously crippled. Even if it were possible for the magazines to continue in business under these new conditions the peo-' people would derive no bene fit from the measure, for un til the Postoffice Depart ment is taken out of politics and business-like manage ment installed, it is improb able that any additional rev enue collected will be used economically. We urge every friend of honest politics, economical government and a free press to telegraph or write an im mediate protest to their sen ators and representatives. The Curtis Publishing Co.
