T2. TOPFKA DAILY STATE JOtTRN AS-TUESDAY EVENING. JULY 29, 1913-
IS DIFFERENT NOW J. R. 3Ian Jast Learns Ancient ' Fend Has Been Forgotten Railroads ow Actually Court Publicity of Right Kind. NEWSPAPERS ARE FRIENDLY Harmonious Co-Operation Has Taken Place of Strife. Abolition of Free Pass Marked , Beginning1 of New Era. The world ' do" move, and it is mov ing in the right direction. A part of it at least is getting better. Anyway the railroad world isn't like it used to be. Time was But this is getting ahead of the story. May be there isn't any story, but the general public likes to know of unusual happenings, and anything that would give a newspaper man cold feet well, the general public would probably like to know something that would feaze a newspaper man to the extent of giving him cold feet. At least all the public except his wife wnnM like to know about his cold feet. and as these are hot days near d"g (lavs perhaps even the wife would be" interested hut in this case there isn't any wife, so interest in this nar rative should be unanimous. When the managing editor pried the man. who is starting on - the second round of the newspaper game, from a desk job and told him he could "do the railroads." the man pried found hiWLelf groping blindly for the ropes. He felt himself swaying and going down for the count, and his feet ! Turn on the gas. please, and hustle a tub of hot water. Oh, dog gone the Ksrsas Natural pour some kerosene on the back log and let the fire be hot. But the Kansas Natural was not to Mame for this chill". Blame it on the j railroads. They used to be blamed 1 for everything from twins to climate. Whv should they not be blamed for a man having a chill? We do blame them and blame them right now, and do so rightly and with rignteous indig nation. They were responsible for this news paper man's chill. The very mem ories eight year old memories of the railroad officials of Topeka froze him. Responsibility should be placed where it belongs. They were respon sible. But credit, too, should be be stowed where it is due. and the rail roads also thawed him out, and the thawing process is really the point of this story. There would not have been any thawing eight years ago. Then they would have left him rigid, stiff and cold, and would have been gleeful in doing' so. and maybe they would have been given some merit marks in the great recording book ofj railroad general managers. Times Hnve Changed. But times have changed. This S. J. man had been away from Topeka and 1 1 . . !fr .11.1 T him thinT were just as they used to be. Time ' was (we think we have reached the place to begin with "Time was) when a newspaper reporter had to reach 'steen outer guards to touch the door knob of a railroad department head. If he were husky, he might get the door open: if he were brave he might enter: if he were wise, he might stay long enough to be passively ejected; if he were foolish, the am bulance carried him away, and when he was able to get around again he discreetly waylaid the lady clerks in the alley and eot his news that wav. and even then he had to dodge the ; this tact Drings up a suujeui ir k railway s secret service men or ehdose ulatlon.

A deep- seaiea ana long smouiaering resent ment made him wish he could say gleefully. "Everybody's doing it" everybody except himself. Best Run on the Paper.

E. was skirting unusually near J the truth. Skirting is becoming more truthful and less concealing every day. so say the men who are brazen enough to look. Just to show that he was brave, the reporter did not take his gun with him on his first hunt for news back on his old beat. From a friend he learned that the Santa Fe maintains a publicity department. "Frank Jarrell is in charge." he was told by a fellow newspaper man. "He's a prince, a royal good fellow. Find him by turning right around to the right as soon as you get through the Jackson street entrance to the new office building. Little door there with sign on it. Looks like the side entrance to a saloon. Good place to drop in." So the S. J. man dropped in with a innle on his face and his hat hung over a clinched rist and siatea ms business in as heavy a voice as he could muster. (All this is put on. Of courpe we knew an tne time mat Frank Jarrell was O. K. Every news Dawr man from Alma to Wamego ever studied Greek? knows that.) .farrell Advanced on Him. Jarrell came toward him briskly with arm swinging, and the S. J. man tap-tapped his feet in retreat witnout letting them pass each other in ap - ..roved nrize ring fashion, But Jar reli was only advancing to shake hands! And oh. ve God-fries and little fishes and a "whole flock of tut-tuts. Here instead of scowling department heads and secret service men sup pressing news, was a sumptuous and commodious office given over entirely for publicity uses with an expert at the head and assistants to help. And if anyone has an idea that the Santa Fe's "publicity department is merelv a buffer between the railroad's actual" doings and the public's knowl edge of them, he is mistaken. There is no insistance mat me i"iuuc knowledge of what the big railroad corporation is doing. shall pass through Mr. Jarrell's hands. Mr. Jar rell i not a censor. News is not re ferred to "him before it is made public, if a reporter goes after it. Mr Jar re'l is the railroad company s official news gatherer and disburser 01 news, but when a reporter seeks certain in formation he is not told. "I will see about it. Call again and I will give vou what WF. want published. In stead he tells you just which man Knows what you want to know, ana vou hunt that man up Mr. Jarrell will show vou to him. if you ish and you are courteously received and given anv information at hand.

J. man around, introduced him to busy men of large responsibilities and every where it was. ' Come whenever you feel like. Glad to help you. Tell vou anything we know. Drop In again." The J. R. man is not usod to dropping into skyscrapers, but he liked the spirit shown. When Col. Savage Was Hard to See. Time was when Col. Savage, every body in Topeka knows Col. Savage, was" prettv hard to see. He was al ways all right when one could get to him, but there were barriers and sim ply being a newspaper man was not sufficient.

NORTH SIDE NEWS 3Iany Improvements in "orth Topeka During Year 1913. Dibble Grocery Store Will Re model and Build Men Front. Following closely upon the comple tion of the Campbell Drug company s new front comes the announcement that the Dibble Grocery company will remodel their North Topeka store. The Dibble contract calls for a new modern front, refurnishings for the entire inside and new modern fixtures 1 throughout. North Tcpeka and Nortn Kansas avenue are undergoing many improvements. The new white way will be under construction almost im mediately and will not only improve the attractiveness of North Topeka but will increase the value of property on the avenue and goes to show that the residents of the North ' side are pro- j gressive and enterprisin It has also been settled definitely that there is to be a new fire station built. Everything will be new and modern with the exception of the fire men, they are giving satisfaction. There are also a number of minor improvements that have been comple ted recently and are under way: The North Kansas Avenue Methodist church is being remodeled to a certain extent renovated inside and out and repainted. A number of new business houses have been recently Built on the avenue, a large amount of street paving Is under way. and everywhere in the resident districts new dwelling houses can be seen that are under course of construc tion. For some time after the 1903 flood North Topeka practically stood still aa to improvements. But now the resi dents of the city and business men are convincing vUitors that North To peka is progressing and point with pride to their slogan "Notice North Topeka Mow." Mrs. J. A. Staveiy Dies. Mrs. J. A. Staveiy died Monday morning at one of the local hopitals. Mrs. Staveiy was formerly a resident of North Topeka when her husband, the Rev. J. A. Staveiy, occupied the pulpit of the North Kansas Avenue Methodist church. The news of her death was something of a shock to her husband and friends for during her sickness at the hospital she was re ported in no danger and constantly improving. She was born at Madison. N. J., July 29. 1S70, and was married to Dr. J. A. Staveiy in 1S00. During the last six years she has resided at Atchison and Emporia where Mr. Staveiy has occu- j pied pulpits.

Woman Gives Reason for Popularity of the Slit jSkirt. New- Tork. Juty-S9. Why slit skirts and the ballot should berorae an tsue is be yond niv comprehension.. I believe in botb. That is. I think as a suffragist tnat women should vote anil as a purely hu man being r,f the feminine gender, that women should wear pretty and becoming clothes and nothing in the way of fash ions that I lAve known . about since I have been old enough to know anything about them, are mote beautiful than the modes of ttir present time." A very gifted and incidentally pretty girl stopping at the Waldorf with her chaperon, en route for Europe, where she goes to finish- her musical education. Miss 1 lorenee atkins. daughter of r. fc.. at kir.s. who is known as the "'king of the Oklahoma oil lands." made the above comments apropos of what Mrs. Thomas Marshall, wife of the vice president of the United States had to say of slit skirts and the vote. The exact quotation to which Miss Wat kins referred as coming from Mrs. Mars-all: "To me the fashions of today ought to convince anyone that a woman is not yet fit to vote."' ' it seems to me absurd to hold women responsible for the fashions when anyone who knows anything about such matters, knows that men are arbiters of fashion: that the great fashion houses on the con tinent and New York are headed by men. In other words, the great dressmakers ot the world with but few exceptions are men and they dictate what women shall wear. In other words men make the fashions for women to wear, and for men to admire. Ri. Mrs. Marshall shouldn't condemn yeomen for the present styles if she does nan who helped elect her husband to of fice. Instead. Women are amiable i creatures as they should oe. 1 ney are wiliinsr to make a eown out of a yard o: ten yards of material, depenains on wnat. the "mere man dressmaker declares is the mode.

J for one frock we can have them made out of one ami two yards. Maybe Mrs. Marshall's husband gets enough money to pay for expansive skirts. Mrs. Bryan's doesn't. I am sure. "But, seriously speaking, the present modes. besides being economical are graceful and are carrying out in a mod ern way the styles that were worn by the most feminine women the world has ever known the women of the empire. As a suff-agist. I contend that neither th vote nor fa.-hions make or unmake women. But the modern suffragist is a detriment to the cause when she is but of fashion. If men make slit skirts the fashion, the sufTraaist should be among the first to wear them. She doesn't have to be vulgar or ungraceful, either." CHAINED TOGETHER.

The city tax levy for the present year probably will be the same as last year 70 cents on the valuation of J100 according to the forecast of Roy L. Bone, commissioner of finance, in a letter addressed to the Taxpayers' league. Bone doesn't see any chance to make a cut in the levy, and gives several reasons for it. The league asked the commission recently to do its part toward a cut in the total tax rate to 11.50 on the $100. The rate last year was SI. 67 From present prospects the rate is likely to be much the same, any sav ing there may be in the county levy being necessary to take care of a probable increase in the levy for school purposes. Last year the county levy was 24 cents on the $100. The school board levy was 61 cents. The state levy was 12 cents. There may be little change in the state levy. The county levy is expected to be de creased, partly on account of the au tomobile registration fees, much ofi which go into the county's road fund for maintenance of the public roads. The board of education needs more money to take care of a floating in debtedness on which it has been pay ing a high rate of interest. With the forecast that the city levy will remain approximately the same there is every reason to believe there will be little change in the total rate last year. The big increase in the cfty budget will be found in that of the mayor's department, according to Bone, where there is a lot of new fire equipment to be purchased, and a new fire station for North Topeka. will cost at least $25,000, perhaps more. A motor truck is to be purchased to take the place of horses of the No. 4 station, burned to death recently, and motor truck for the aerial at the central sta tion is included in the budget. Pro vision for several bridges across the Shunganunga also will be made, it is said, w hich will cost money. So, in spite of the materially in creased valuation, it is likely that a levy practically the same as last year will be necessary to raise the money proposed to be spent. A saving of $4,000 in the budget of the commissioner of streets and walks. W. G. Tandy, is shown in his budget already filed. The commissioner of waterworks and street lighting, F. M. New-land, asks for about $1,500 less than was appropriated last year. The commissioner of parks, public build ings and sanitation, W. L. Porter, probably will ask for less money than was asked for a year ago. The budget of the commissioner of finance, Roy L. Bone, will be much the same as last year. The big increase is in the mayor's budget, and it comes in the fire de partment where extensive improve ments must be made to maintain the proper fire protection for the city, it is claimed. BREAD FOR DINNER, Delpliow Threshing Record Wakes Memories of Old Tinier. Israel Alfred J. Dennis. 1725 Kansas avenue- has sent the following "crop" story to the editor of the State Jour nal: "In a recent isfcue of the State Jour nal I see a Delphcs, Kan., report of quick work in the harvesting, thresh ing and milling line, resulting in put ting biscuit on the supper table from wheat that was standing in the field in the morning. "This is called 'making some record.' It may be a record for the Sunflower state, but the Sucker state can beat it. Over 40 years ago in Menry. Marshall county. 111., I helped my older broth ers run a 'handrake reaper- we raked off the grain with a three-tined pitch fork made for that purpose. "I remember some winter wheat that was dead ripe and in prime condition. We cut in the morning, threshed at a nearby farm, took the wheat to Henry, ground it, brought the flour back, and had biscuits ready for the harvesters at noon. "If the Delphos people hadn't had to sock their wheat, they might have done the same. But we did it." MAJOR HARVEY'S DOG. It Kept the Neighbors Avtake Last Night While the JMajor Slept. Major A. M. Harvey has just added an Irish setter to his tax list along with his automobile. The major was presented with a month old pup last night to take the place of his dog Brownie which was drowned at the lawyers' picnic. This dog gave him no little trouble last night, causing him to lose a night's sleep and almost cost him a visit to the city lockup. Major Harvey put the dog on his back porch about 10 last night and prepared for a good sleep. The dog began to howl, waking up the neigh- bors. but it was said the major slept i ing to the officers at the city jail and tne through it all. About midnight the court house. They 1 say tnat the tele police station began receiving com- 5,1?;. c.an l"d'r..f "" ' plaints from irate neighbors, and a ' man was sent out to investigate. He 1 woke Major Harvey with some diffi-' culty at 2 oclock and requested him to quiet the dog. Otherwise, the po lice officers said, he would have to re port the case at the police station. The major then carried the dog to the tent where he was sleeping, and the puppy ceased his cries. He took the dog to bed with him and the canine licked his face and fell asleep.
