The paid circulation of The Rising Son is more than double the combined circu lation of all the other Kansas City Colored weekly newspapers. TO THE READERS-OF THE" SON. .1. II. Johnson, who the Son accepted a short while ago im an assistant on this paper, is in nowise connected with us now. He is not the man that we look him to be, and any soliciting or attempting to collect money for the Son by him should be treated with contempt . Confidence is the Mainspring of Business. ot That's why the Big Store Grows Bigger Tho people have confidence in It they know the Kmery, Bird, Thayer merchandise Is good, yea, more than good. Its the best, and that our city and mail order adver tising describes the goods as they really are. Misrepresenting merchandise is easy. But aooner or later the deception is found out and the sham store loses the customer. The shoddy merchant has but one recourse. He must paint his merchandise values In such extravagant and alluring colors that a certain volume of new business (people who have not discovered the sham yet and are attracted by glittering advertisements offering genuine goods at trloe for which such goods cannot be sold) will result, even if the buyer never returns a second time. The Emery, Bird. Thayer Store has 42 years of honest value-giving behind it. We bold our thousands of cus tomers year after year. There is a reason confidence. Confidence Is the main spring of business. People have confidence in the Big Store and a power ful main spring Is the result. It turns the wheels of a vast business and unlike most machinery It does not wear out. Every year It generate more energy, turns more wheels, serves more customers. No rust, no shop-worn goods, no ancient styles here. Emery, Bird, Thayer prices are always as low as honest mechandise can be consistently sold for. Your Christmas money, will go further here.

President Roosevelt stands today as one of the greatest nun of the age. He is a champion of integrity, honesty and fair play.

Kansas City, Kansas, ami Independ ence are already enjoying the bless ing of much reduced gas bills while 1 lii' people of this city must rent con tented until the politicians seo fit to give them what they are entitled to. There must b a graft somewhere and the people of this city are going to demand an explanation. The unpopularity of the Connati Measure, which had for lis purpose the disfranchisement if the Negro voters of Maryland came In evidence at the polls last Tuesday. The meas ure met an overwhelming defeat and now Senator (iorinan, according to his that the Poo Amendment would carry expression cannot retire from the pol itical ring, li was his fondest hope at the polls and thus his efforts would be crowned with success and ho could retire in contentment. The will of the people asserted Itself and the old senator must begin anew. LOOK! LOOK1I LOOK!!! Don't fair to read about the Wonderful CURL-I CURE. WORKS LIKE MAGIC.

"Chinamen are, as a rule, very hon orable In business matters, but it must not be taken for granted that integrity Is universal with them," said Mr. H. M. Lakin, of Shanghai, at the Shore ham. "I hnve lived In the Orient for many years, and have had extensive deal ings with all sorts of astern people. There is a saying thnt a Chinaman's word is his bond, anil this is very true from the fact that it is a rare thing for them to make any other than a verbal contract. So It happens that what a Celestial Jells you he will do will be performed in a great majority of cases. The fact remains, however, that you've got to pick your man in China Just the same as in any other country. Ah Sin has bis counterparts in his native land, and every European over there can teP you of his experi ences with tricky Chinamen. "I do not believe that a Chinaman Is any more honest than his fellow man of other nationalities, as Is shown by the vast amount of grafting which permeates the social and political life of the empire. The individual Chinese business man is straght In his deal Cleveland lngs largely because it Is a matter of I necessity." Washington Post. Some Gag Rules. When you get so you can't hear your feet light on the sidewalk, don't try to take more'n another one. When you are walking olong the street and every person you meet looks like someone you have met before it's a good time to look for the road home. When you go home at night an' go to bed if you reach down an" get hold of the button of your nightsbert, afi' pull It aroun' your neck, an think It's the sheet, it's a sure sign you're good an' drunk. If you get In the niornin', an' put on one shoe an' them pick up the other one, an' look at tho sole of it, to see which footo it goes on, you had better go up the river an' fibh awhile before goin' to work.
