Women are like men in one re spect; some are good and some are not THE MUSTERING .OUT OF THE NEGRO TROOPS. A great calamity has befallen the negroes who serve the United States In the capacity of soldiers. President Roosevelt has Issued orders for com panies B. C. and D of the Twenty-fifth Infantry to be dismissed without honor Some of the negro soldiers have served for 20 years. Even old Mingo Sanders, first sergeant of company B, must go. The majority of the negroes have faithfully served Uncle Sam from a period covering ten to twenty years. All must go. No place in this country Is the negro safe from the stern, sever ity of the powerful white man and his combined forces to eliminate, the black man. , -. President Roosevelt Is commander-in-chief of army and navy and head of the entire nation. Yet the presi dent Is assuming this great responsi bility. The military regulations pro vide that no man can' be dishonorably" discharged unless proved guilty by gen eral court martial as read In the C2 article of the army regulation rules. Again if the negro troops are to be dismissed ns some say the law pro vides, why not discharge the white of ficers commanding them as the law al so provides In the army regulation rules? Effect of College Education. It would be interesting to trace In detail, and after careful study of facts, to Just how great a degree the 'varsity bred man influences us In respect ol dress, says Men's Wear. For Instance, the knee drawer, which retailers could not get enough of during summer, la nothing more or less than the running pant" of track athletics, as the Jersey that Is coming to be worn with them la the Jersey of the "gym." The turning up of the trousers to show fancy hose Is an outcome of turned up tennis trou sers, not for 'varsity's sake but for ex pediency and comfort. So, the list of what we owe to col lege men In matters of dress might be lengthened. The collegian Is certainly a force to be reckoned with by makers and sellers of men's wear. Broad Classification.

"Ah, Touchem!" cried the man with tho close-fitting eyebrows, "Isn't this the most remarkable day you ever saw?" "I see nothing unusual about It," re plied Touchem. "But haven't you noticed that It has had four afternoons, four nights and four mornings In lt, and here we are on the fifth afternoon all in the same day?" "What!" "Am I not right? You borrowed a ten of me this morning, or one of the mornings of this day, and told me you would pay m .to-morrow, as sure as the sun rose on a to-morrow. So I cannot reason the thing out any other way." Judge. Parlcr Car Diversion, "Porter," said the fussy lady In the. parlor car, "I wish you would open this window." The lady In the seat directly across heard the request, and drew a cloak about her. "Porter, If that window Is opened," she snapptai, testily, "I shall freeze to death." "And if the window is kept closed," returned the other passenger, "I shall surely suffocate." The porter stood timidly between the two fires. "Porter," remarked the commercial traveler, "your duty Is very plain. Open the window and freeze one lady. Then close lt and suffocate the other." Puck. s js ' for It Reaches More Homes of Colored People than any othei Paper KANSAS CITY, MO., THURSDAY, NOVEMBER , 1900. COURAGE OF RUSSELL 8AGE. Close Friend Sheds New Light on Char acter of Financier. Twenty years ago few persons could get Into the presence of Russell Sage without passing Inspection by John E. McCann, who for a long time was Mr. Sage's confidential clerk, says the Wall Stree Journal. Mr. McCann served efficiently in that' position, but he had a soul for poetry, and after ten years he left finance for literature. Now that Mr. Sage has died, Mr. McCann contributes to the Journalist a remarkable tribute to his character. He speaks of him as a genius.'" He says he was a deeply religious man. who had often during a lull In the storm of business "muttered a little prayer," and who In the panic of May, 1884, "when the universe seemed crashing about his ears, looked and acted like one ir deep communion with the Infinite." He declares that Mr. Sage was a "true man and a gen tleman." While It was Impossible for him to cringe, he did not know how to offend deliberately. The- proof of his moral courage was to be found In the fact that for nearly 34,000 days he insisted on living his own Il'o in his own way, regardless of criticism whereas a weaker man would have been made a reckless spendthrift by the ridicule to which Mr. Sage was subjected because of the carefulness of hla nor son al expenditures. - -w THAT'S WHAT HE MEANT. Hubby Knew What He Was Waiting for, All Right. The words "chiffonier" and "chauf feur" look very much alike when writ ten, though In conversation there Is sufficient difference In the pronuncia tion to distinguish very readily. Re cently the following dialogue occurred In which the words were used, though one of the parties thougiit for a while that his friend didn't know any bet ter: "What are you waiting for, old man?" "Waitln' for my chiffonier. We arc going driving In my auto." "O, no; you mean you are wnltlng for your chaffeur the man that drives your car.' "Noje; I'm waiting for my chiffon ier," stubbornly replied the man. "I beg your pardon," replied the other. "A chiffonier la a swell dresser, and a chauffeur Is one who drives your car." "That's all right." replied the one who knew, as a prevty woman, hand somely dressed, came down tho stair wav and not In the machine. "I'm waiting for a 'chiffonier' nil right." Discovery of Coal.

Ginter had taken up his residence in that sec tlon of tho country, supporting him self by the proceeds of his rltle, which he exchanged for tho necessaries ol life at the nearest station. The story runs that on his return homo In a diiz zllng rain after an unsuccessful day he stumbled over something which was thrown forward, and observing that tho object was black and hearing of the many tales In regard to conl In that section, lie picked it up and car ried It home, where ho decided that It must be the stove coal spoken of !: tradition. The next day he took tin specimen to a Col.

An up-hill railway, perhaps th most remarkable in tho world. Is tin Oroyo, In Peru, lt runs from Callae to the gold fields of Cerro do I'nsco From Cullao it ascends the narrow valley of tho Uliiiac, rising nenrly 5.000 feet in the first GO . miles. Thenre it poos throiiKh the Intrirate gorges of the Sierras till it tunnels tho Andes at an altitude of 15,l!l! feet, tho highest point In the world where a piston-rod is moved by steam. Tho wonder Is Increased by remem bering that this elevation is reached iu 78 miles. Moved the Wolrd. Cecil Rhodes was once considered a crank. When Mr. Rhodes made his first appearance In tho Cape parlla ment ho could talk of nothing but his great Idea of a transcontinental railway and with the aid of a specially pre pared map he sought to interest his fellow members in tho colossal scheme. Most ot them thought him a bore and some openly called bin) a crank. , Was Dead at the Throttle. An engineer died at his post on a fast express train running from Hob ton to Philadelphia recently. It is not know how long tho dead hand rested on the throttle, ns the truck was clear for many miles. Not until they were entering Philadelphia like a whirlwind did the fireman discover that the engineer was dead. LEARN NEW TRICKS ENGINEERS TAUGHT HOW TO GUIDE ELECTRIC CARS. Men on One Great System Being Broken In for the Change to Come Work Neither Hard Nor Uncongenial. Tho metamorphosis of the railroad engineers of the New York Central has begun, says the Now York Globe. It Is hero Willi the elect lillcnl Ion of tho system, nnd it will continue stead ily. The school Is wiihoul text books, and lacks nil of the frills ami furbe lows to dear to the modern educator's heart. The men were taken In batches of six ami sent, light over the road in tho new double ended electric en gine that, can draw more nnd draw it faster than any steam engine that ever was built. Tho process of change from engi neer to moWiriiiun Is nut. so long as one might casually bimiiiohc. Iu the first place, the ongli r does not need to bo taught anything shout signals and general rules of the great Iron highway. lie bus learned ail that. Tho engineer who, being far sighted and anxious to keep abreast, of the lllipiovoinoiils In the service, decides that bo wants to be u inotortnan. ap plies to the chief engineer through the superintendent of his division, and he is given preference over all other applicants. The application of the engineer be ing favorably passed, lie is ordeted to report to the "professor of electrical engines" lit Klhgsbridgo. If you were to nsk for It I in under this title, you wouldn't find him, because be litis n.) actual deniiiiiiiialiiin. The engineer, 125 or 111 in. went to Klngsbridgc one day innl walled around expectantly, livery one was dressed in ordinary garb, ns the elect ii igino Is not. so oily nnd Mi my a proposition ns bis former pet. the steam locomotive. Tho first class or six pupils climbed up the iron ladder in much the same way that a passenger boiinls it steam ship from a rowismt. The sensation Is about tho same, except that there Is no chance to drop Into tho water Inside bo found himself In u compart ment about the size, perhaps u trillc larger, than the uvorago Mat. 1 he main conn ailment is us big as a bud room. There are oilcloth covered seats In two of its four corners, beside His seals are the controller , and the br&flc. I'p above is tho whistle cord and bell rope. The whistle is produe tlve of u sound that is a cross be tween tho toot of a self-respecting an tomoblle and tho din of a fog horn gone amuck.

NUMBER 10 t.So motors, tfie, condensers, ami othet sections of tho complete uiochnsism. The 'explanation of these putts Is only superficial, and by the way oi in reduction. Then the "professor," and that's just what the new men began to rail him within nn hour after the Btart ol tho class, grasps tho controller nnd lirlngs It back a notch. The notch is one of a series of teeth, like things that have to bo touched In turn, as the lever Is brought backward to In crease tho speed. If this Is not ob served, to drop Into the vernacular of tho professor, "things burn Inside." The Mg engine, noiseless, as though Its wheels were shod with felt, be gins to slip slowly over tho track. Then more notches are let out, nnd the speed increases until lt fairly bounds over the rails. This continues for two hours and return. On the return tho motortuan does not send bis engine to tho turntable, ns ho did in his steam days . Ho merely changes his seat to the other side of the compartment, for tho electric en gine Is double ended anil runs Just as well one way as another. After two or three of tbeso trips tho pupil Is permitted to take a turn at tho starting nnd slopping. Then the minute explanation of the Intri cacies begins. i bis sumo process is gone through with on succeeding days until every part anil lis uso is thoroughly familiar to him. FEEDING AND SELLING MULES. How They Should Be Dealt With to Get the Best Results. Tho southerner requires fat mules, tho fatter the better. Flesh catches tho planter's eye. Sleek coaled ani mals are also In ilemiind. In si.e, tho cotton mule ranges from the 1 1 hatrU donkey to Hie 15.2 baud farm mule. Mare mules are given the preferencn In tho south, but nnrlh. east or west this Is not so. The wise feeder will keep t!;eso lacls in view when buying young or worn mules. The rough, leggy aiiiinal should he avoided. Such are mean feeders ami seldom fallen. This Is also true of culls. II Is possi ble, says Orange .liidd Farmer, lo tell Willi reasonable leiialnly which colts will feed out well and which will not. The coll thai keeps nearly fal on ordi nary feed and with ordinary care can bo depended on. while the one thai Is stunted, rough and Ihln Is u doubtful feeder. Koine of our r lers raise their own sl-ick mules, buying colls and yearlings, then pasluilng or feed ing them very much as cattle are fed. Feeding usually begins in iy full nnd continues until the end of tho year. Many carloads of ( year -old mules go smith. The feeding Is best done In sheds equipped for that purpose, la most seel ions, nl least live kinds of feed can be bad. Corn Is the principal fat tening element, bill brim and shelled nuts art as a loosening agent ilnd pro luce a good coat. Stub feeds should be given In the proportion of one part bran or oats to three or four purls corn. Soy I cans are a promising mule feed, being tl pin! of llns I meal. In l u.iiliig and fattening inuies, ' the shearing should be attended to often. The mane falls over badly when al lowed to get too lom and II Is pine tii aily impo,ilde to make a good trim later. When receiving a mule i hat has I II shod, remove Hie shoes, especial ly those on the hind feel, I In- Inst thing. Mules will kick each other, hut if there are no .'.hoes, no barm Is done. Work ns many as possible. If only a lime or two. Many consider a mule broken that has bad only "tie or iuo lessons In the wagon or plow. Mulis six i ii lit be kept, during the fattening period, coiilined to the stud. flood bedding is very essential to producing a Hue finish. The above Is written with special reference to rotlhii mules, hut applies equally well lo other de mands. Most all the cotton mules from Kentucky are sold through tbn Atlantic gateway. The market opens Iu the late fall or early winter and closes In early spring. , Useful. Knlcker Has Subbubs been suc cessful with his garden?
