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

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.

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"

It Is self-explanatory:

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
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

the shrine of our Lady Nicotine some
thing like 300,000 tons of tobacco last

Debts of Russia an Japan.
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.

Why He Proposes to Stand Pat en a
Protection Ace Full.
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
Aee of diamonds: The great home
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.
