Dr. Bacote touched upon the "Clansman" last Sunday. His address was very pleasing and in structive to the large audience. Next Sunday he will touch upon the "Goers and Comers." The Knights of Pythias Lodge will hold its grand' session in Kansas City In July and will go in encampment for a week. There will be a big time among the members of the fraternity and urrungements are now under way. Another Negro school scandal Is brewing. The Son Is not In a post tlon to say when all facts ore to ma terialize but the clouds are ugly and the storm will be Intense. The peo ple of this community may feel a reluctance in asserting their rights In connection with this school ques tion but it Is up to J hem and they must act. Otherwise the Negro youth of Kansas City would be a thousand times better off with the school doors tightly closed unless a more wholesome Influence Is brought to bear.. The young people of the Fifth Epis copal District, comprising the states of Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska, Colo rado, Utah, Wyoming, New Mexico Territory, Washington and California, are called to meet In a young people's convention in accordance with the ac tions of the Missouri, North Missouri, Kansas nnd Colorado conferences at their last session, deciding that a young people's convention should be held in this district. Said convention to be held at Allen chapel, Kansas City, Mo., July 5, 6, 7 and 8, for the purpose of creating a deeper Interest and a greater enthusiasm In the work of the church and race. Several days ago we bad a casual talk with a factory representative of the Chicago typewriter and much to our surprise we learned that one of the big typewriter companies In the EaBt declared a dividend of 65 per cent in one year. We had supposed that typewriters, like many other things, were domineered by trusts, but such an enormous dividend In a sin gle year banished all possible doubt. We had contemplated buying a ma chine and after finding that the Chi cago typewriter possessed so many Im provements over other machines we concluded to equip our office with one. A good article complete for $35.00 gives us assurance the Chicago type writer is not under Jhe domineering influence of a trust Th Kits In Ancient Times. Individuals of princely rank once ex pected the kiss of respect from their Inferiors, but this custom Is almost obsolete. A kiss was conferred as a formal mark of favor by crowned heads at jousts and tournaments. Prln cess Margaret, daughter of James I. of Scotland, kissed the poet Alain Char tier for saying so many nice things about her, though he was one of the ugliest men In the kingdom. Nation's Timekeeper. Americans get their correct time from a little room in the naval observ atory on Georgetown heights, in tb suburbs of Washington. The observa tory was originally Intended to detect errors In ship chronometers and te egnlate them properly. This work Constitutes one department at the In stitution, but perhaps its most import ant function Is that of being the na tion's timekeeper. Fishing Nets Are Sacred. To appreciate the dignity of the net maker's profession one needs to know the sacredness of the fishing net, and the protection whlrh the law affords. At Gloucester they used to quarantine a town stricken with smallpox by placing fishing nets about It. for the legal penalty for disturbing the nets was so great that no one dared to break through.

France, Italy, Austria-Hungary, Spain, Russia Greece and Switzerland follow In order. Asia has not less than 3,000 periodical papers, and Africa 200 dall lies. America has 17.223 publications, of which 2,215 are dallies. Needs of California Juries. The Jury that recently tried State Senator Emmons for bribery, at Sac ramento. Cal., sat twenty-six days. During that, time It consumed thirty six $1 meals a day, 150 quarts of clar et, 200 bottles of beer, sixteen quarts of white wine and thirty-six quart bdt ties of whisky. All this at the restau rant, besides over two dozen bottles of whisky sent to the Jury room. One of the most Interesting sights in connection with the rush of Christ mas shoppers is the big Dry Goods store of Emery, Bird, Thayer Co. The store is being furnished with an annex or addition on the north, which is near ly completed. A more attractive or complete store cannot be found west of the Mississippi. Every convenience to make shopping easy and practical has been considered and put In use by the owners of the store until now there is no comfort for the great army of buyers but what has been supplid It Is a great Santa Claus hohse for the little folks. AT LAST SUCCESS CAME. I knocked at tbe gate of my lord, Success: I stormed his threshold with eager din. I love him, the prize of my soul, no less. Dbt he barred the gate lest I step within.

It isn't necessary to act fjollsh in order to live the simple life. Newspaper Enterprise. People do not appreciate the earnest endeavor of the press to furnish news quickly. Some wonderful examples have been furnished in recent years of quick publication of current events, but none can excel a recent "scoop" landed by the Freeborn (la.) Courier, It Is self-explanatory: "We came pretty near getting scooped on an item this week, but if it were not for the fact that we al ways have our weather eye open, we would have been left in the cold. Just as we go to press Oscar Sanborn Is having three fingers cut off by a threshing machine. A doctor has been sent for. Details In next Issue."

There is a skeleton In every closet, but tills Is no excuse for a continual rattling of the bones. VIRTUE'S PRIZE. What nothing earthly gives or can destroy, The soul's calm sunshine, and the heartfelt Joy, Is virtue's prize. Pope's "Essay on Man." Mrs. Booker T. Washington and son were In our city Inst week enroute to I .ob Angeles Cal., where she has gone to Improve the health of her son. While here she was the guest of Mrs. D. N.

The Money We Burn at the 8hrlne of Lady Nicotine. Tobacco Leaf reports the manufac ture in this country during the fiscal year ended June 30, 1905, of 7.C89,- 337,107 cigars, an increase of 183,020,- 437 over the output of the preceding year. Our export trade In these goods s quite Insignificant, and Import trade in foreign made cigars is Utile more than an inconsiderable incident. Our population of males who may be re garded as of "cigar age" is probably a little less than 24,000,000. Our do mestic output was sufficient to sup ply eac . one of these with about 320 smokes during the year. As the cen sus returns do not include statistics of smokers and nonsmokers, It is Im possible to carry ihe calculation be yond ti at point. The cigarette crdp for the year was 3,ri8,212,740. an increase of 141.530, 479 over 1904. We produced 21,131, 801 pounds of snuff, an Increase of 947,281 pounds. The output of smok lng and chewing tobacco increased only about 2 per cent., from 328, C50,- 710 pounds to 334,489,110 pounds. The total value of all this Is not given, but the figures of the smaller ostput of that year are given by the census of 1900 as follows: Tobacco, chewing, smoking and snuff $10;,754,3(i2 Tobacco, cigars and cigar ettes 100,223,152 Total $203,977,514 The development of this industry Is indicated by the census figures, which show the value of the product for 1880 as $110,772,631; for 1890 as $195,530,802, and for 1900 as 2C3,977, 514. The increase for last year will certainly oring the figures to more than $300,000,000, which Is a very pret ty sum to spend for this form of com bustibles. Compared with our domestic trade, our foreign commerce in the weed amounts to little. Our total importa tion last yeru of tobacco in all its forms amounted to $22,145,846 and our exportation to $37,123,514. Estimating our consumption by weignt. It appears that we burned at the shrine of our Lady Nicotine some thing like 300,000 tons of tobacco last year. New York Sun. The Sons of Allen, were entertained by brother C. D.

Brllher Frazler-spar ed no pains to entertain the club royal ly. There were two additions to the club. Remarks by Prof. Doilley and others. The affair was a grand one.

Since the beginning of the war Japan has increased her debt from about $290,000,000 to $981,000,000, but of tills amount she has on hand per haps ns much as $175,000,000 unex pended. In the same time Russia's debt has Increased from 3,282,ft00,000 to about $37nO,OOO,0OO.- Japan will probably receive about $100,000,000 from Russia In payment for the main tenance of prisoners of war, ami Huh sla must also borrow money for her Immediate needs at home. Japan therefore, seems to come out of the war in better financial conditions than RusKla, K spite of the latter country's vastly greater resources. No Call Fai ftumnathu - - .. .,.... 'j .

A bright and brainy Missouri editor who shapes the rollcy of the Central Missouri Republican of Poonesvllle, and shapes it well indeed, displays a clear comprehension of the doctrine and workings of protection, along with an expert familiarity with the elementary principles of the game of poker. In a recent aniele headed. "We Stand Pat." This entertnlnlng writer Is not without high authority "nd eminent sanction In his use of the euphemistic technology of the great American game. For example we find that In his speech at the dinner given to the Russian peace envoys at the Metropolitan club in New York on the evening of Sept. 7. President Hart ley of Yale college, tapped the same fountain when he said: "The great deeds of history in the past In whlrh Russia and America have been associated have been ex pressed much better than l could put them. I wish to express my personal appreciation of Mr. Witte and Mr. Rosen, who have brought things to a definite conclusion. "Their task was difficult, their sue cess surprising. lt was puliaps best summed up in the words of a man on the street who remarked: 'I admire above everything else a man who dares call on a pair of two spots.' The remark was not quite true, for Rus sia had at Portsmouth at least a pair of kings, but It takes nerve to call when one's adversary has all the evi dence of holding a straight flush. "We admire the man who can see that that straight flush Is tinged with the suspicion of a bobtail." While somewhat bewildered with the sequence of scholastic slmnes em braced In the allusions to the "call on a pair of two spots." "a pair of kings," "holding a straight flush." and "the suspicion of a bobtail," we fe .1 bound to conclude that the tlfst' igivshed educator knew all about t'-ni and used them advisedly. We infer similarly as to ", Mis souri man's unflinching determination to "stand pat" on "an ace full." Ac-, cording to Information from reliable sources we are convinced that an ace full Is a good hand to stand pat on, nnd that none but a very foolish man would think of asking for more cards when In possession of such a collec tion dealt to him the first time nround. To the fortunate holder of thre aces and a pair of tens right off the reel there could be, as we are advised, no temptation to discard nnd dally with the draw. Serene compi.uency and entire content would be bis, what time the other gentlemen were Indi cating to the dealer their require ments. Under surh circumstances none hut a raw amateur, or chump, so to speak, would do otherwise than stand pat. So it is with the editor of the Cen tral Missouri Republican. Being neither nn amateur nor a chump he positively and peremptorily ftsmls pat on the protection aee full. This is how he rates his hand: Ace of clubs: High wages In all Industries. Aee of diamonds: The great home market. Aee of spades: Increasing domestic and export trade. Ten of diamonds: Savinss bank de posits of over $3.000. OOii.iiiio. Ten of hearts: Sound money and plenty of it; unlimited credit; busi ness stability. Holding such cards ns these the Boorevllle editor may well exclaim: "We stand pat on the Republican protective tariff. It's a full hand, dealt ns by old Nelson Pingley, God bless him! And It's good horse sense in polities, as It is in poker, to siand pat on a full band. "We are standing p-it and playing these cards for a country unsurpassed for prosperity, intclllrei ce nnd wealth by any country In the world: for a people free, happy, progressive and In dependent, enjoying a civilization ahead of any ever known before: for a future brighter and bette r than man ever dreamed of. "'Standing pat?' You bet we are." Reciprocity and Trusts. "Reciprocity means you patronize me and I will paironlV vn.i. How much better than the selll-li inclplo of a high protective tariff fostering tru-ts." I incoln (III.) Courier. But suppose tbe other f :,( w has nothing to sell except thlim. which you are makfni; fur vonrsclf In abun dant (uantltlis. Would you buy things you did not wsnl lut for tie mke of patronizing the other fellow? Of course you wouldn't. You'd he a fool if yon did. As to trusts. tliy flourish as well without as with a protective tariff. Free trade Great rtrltaln l as a large number of trusty. The Mrgcst trust In the world. Standard Oil, has no tariff protection. Reciptoclty would help the fruits, not hurl them. Our only existing r ilnroclty dicker, that with Cuba. Is milling many mill ions of dollars to the already swollen profits of the sugar trust and the to bacco and cigar trust. No Fotsiliiation. The New York Sun wastes words In using a column and a quarter to argue for "tariff stability, but no fos slllzatloii." Nobody is asking for tar iff fossillzatlon. What the producing Interests Including American labor ask Is that cranks, reformers and scheming politicians shall not be per mitted to play monkey tricks with a tariff that Is doing for the country far more good than a "reformed" tariff would be likely to do. Better stand ! pat for what we know is good than take cnances on me son or paten work tariff that the "reformers" have always cursed the country with.
