I am "ferninsf it. In almost every legislature or congress that meets some one who surely is out of a job or has an ax to grind, intro duces a bill to pension some class of people. The whole theory is wrong. Every man should be given a chance to make an honest living, and then he should be made to do so. If misfortune over takes him it is well to help him, but to pension a man just because he be longs to a certain class, or has held public office all his life, is rasping on an honest man's nervous system. If the said officers are under paid or don't like their job, let them get out and hunt one that is in harmony -with their particular physical makeup. I have no doubt some one will be found who will fill the office and probably give as good satisfaction as the pres ent incumbents; in fact, I know of some defunct candidates who would make a desperate effort to fill the said offices. In any pension system there is, in the nature of the case, a number of pension offices to watch, which calls for officers to watch them, etc. Those who really deserve the pension are of ten the last or.es to get it while the wilv and designing will be at the trough with both front feet in. I have taught school for more than thirty years. There has been much talk, in educational circles, of pen sioning superannuated schoolteachers. I am against that. When I get tired of teaching or cannot get a job I will farm, hold office or carry a hod, but I will not ask for a pension. The only excuse I can see for pensioning sol diers, is the fact that many of them were drafted into the service, and manv were disabled in battle or by exposure, and none of them were paid what the service was worth, at the time, because the government was not able to do so. Therefore it is no more than justice that it help them now. But. honest now, is a man who is wealthy, never saw hard service, and is able and does hold down a fat job, a real patriot, if he draws a large pension for "total disability?" R. M. SUTCX.IFF.

Adv. Even Fire Didn't Prevent Good Busi ness Record. Manhattan, Kan.. Feb. IS. The Farmers' Union Co-operative Mer cantile association of Jamestown, Kan., is starting on its second year of business wit hevery prospect of con tinued success. This association con sists of 24 0 farmers, each of whom holds from $10 to $500 of the $5,000 paid up stock. The store opened for business in November, 1911. A few days later a fire swept the town, burning the whole business section, the farmers' store included. The loss to this store alone was $12,000, only $9,000 of which was covered by insurance.
