EDITORIAL NOTES. jJmJm$j j5mJ-J4j jJmmJmJ jj $ J JJ K. C. Star: Topeku is trying to figure out why she lost both tho stato conventions this year. Perhaps thoy wanted to got away from tho Modocs. The Rov. William Hastings, a min ister of Ohio who was so homoly that Abraham Lincoln gavo him a jaokknlfo for being homelier than himself, Is dead. General Snow Is in Kansas. Ho is attached to tho stall of General Prosperity and announced tho latter's coming oarly in ,1002 for an other visit. There is talk of changing inaugura tion day to another date. This is of interest to ovorypno, as tho Lawrence -Journal notes, because, any of us may become president somo day. Although tho charges against Gen oral Metcalf failed completely, tho Ottawa Herald says Captain Bolt wood Is entitled to tho credit that was given to Bret Harto's cowboy: "lie done his darnedest." The Abilene Reflector, Ed Little's lioine paper, concluding its comment on the Metcalf Investigation, says: "Tho conteiuptiblo gang that has hounded every bravo soldier of tho Twentieth ought at last to quit slan dering its bettors." Governor Stanley thinks it is a mistake to hold tho Republican Slate convention on May 28 because De coration Day comes on May .'10 and the convention might not have fin ished. Possibly tho necessity of quit ting after a day's session may be a good thing. Ottawa Herald: General Funston is a remarkablo man a wondorful man. Ho crossed death valley, loafed around tho north polo, captured Aguinaldo, recovered from appendicitis and camo oast from Sail Francisco without ad vising any committeo on reception of his coming. Ho landed in Kansas City as quietly as a traveling man. A Chicago papor says that In order to mako their clothosollng closely and give them a symmotry of flguro ladies of fashion now dampen their bodies, somo oven dampening their under wear. It is probably untruo, but If any woman is foolish enough to per mit her vanity to load hor such longths sho ought to have rheumatism and chilblains. A reorganization of a Now York City bar-tenders' union intends to pass rulos which will cancel tho mem bership of any member taking a drink while on duty. Why?

Tho speeches aro tho first notoworthy public efforts of many mon who havo slnco becomo prominent, many of them aro mighty good reading and all desorvo to bo preserved. Tins Sunday Capital gives a long list of Kansas towns and tolls how thoy received the names they boar. Iola was named for Mrs. .1. F. Col boru, one of tho owners of tho town slto. Lallarpo was named for a town of that namo in Illinois by Mr. Lull tnor, llrst conductor on tho Pacific. Morun after Daniel Comyn Moran, a capitalist who furnished monoy for tho same road. Humboldt, for Baron von Humboldt. A N1SW political party has boon or ganlzedjn Ohio with tho purposo of disregarding tho Sabbath, doing away with chaplains In tho army, navy and penal institutions, and favoring tho taxation of all church property on the theory that non-beliovers pay taxes to support thogoverinnentand the church being exempt is being benefitted. Whutover people may havo thought of Mr. Ingall's famous remark, all will agree that tho improvement of religion by politics is un irrldosccnt dream. Lawrence Journal: Ten years ago at tho first meeting of tho Kansas Day Ulub, Ed Llttlo had a number on the program, and hero is ono of tho best things ho said In his speech: "Till tho waters of tho soa again Hood tho plains of Kansas, tho Republican party will ubldo in its birthplace, in tho common wealth of Kansas." And after work ing for several yoars to drive it out, Ed Is more strongly convinced than over that ho was right then, and that tho Republican party has como to stay. The second weok in February tho Convention of tho National SulTrage Association will bo held In Washing ton, and from this Stato as delegates will go: Mrs. Helen Ecker of Minne apolis, Mru. Judge W. A. Johnson of Topeka, Mrs. Henrietta Brjggs Wall of Hutchinson, Mrs. Judge Smith of Stockton, Mrs. Anna C. Wait of Lin coln, Mrs. Elizabeth Johnson ofCourt land, Mrs. Henrietta Stoddard Turner of Paola and Miss Helen Kimber, of Parsons. The Anheuser-Busch browing com pany has sued a jointist of Frontonao for sevoral hundred dollars duo on account for liquors bought. Tho jointist has filed a motion in district court to compel the plaintiff to mako Its petition more dollnito, stating what ,'oods wore sold, when and by whom. If the judge sustains this motion tho jointist will rofuso to pay for liquor sold In violation of law, and lawjers think the brewery cannot collect. Furthermore It will put tho Pittsburg agent of tho brewery In tho samo posi tion and ho will have to quit or do a cash business.

Barney Sheridan, editor of tho Democratic Paola Spirit, calls tho Kansas Day meeting a drunken spree. As a matter of fact not a drop of In toxicating liquor of any kind was served at tho banquet, nor has thero over been. Yoi this sturdy Democrat ic organ says: "Tho truth of tho matter is, as detailed in Paola yester day afternoon by an oyo witness, such a hilarious mob never beforo got pos session of representative hall, Pro hibition statesmen drank till thoy foil down and slept in tho saw dust under tho tablos; half llllod bottlos of wiuo wero smashed against tho elegantly flnlBhod walls of tho capltol; rough songs wero sung whllo tho spoakors for 'tho old Hag and big appropria tions' wero amplifying upon tho hon esty and soboritv of tho Republican party of Kansas; tho theft of tho toast master's Fgavol made It. necessary for him to uso :',n empty champaign bot tle to rap and rap in vain for or der; and all tho whllo from start to finish, Babylonian fumes and jargon stifled and confused tho revelers." Iola, Allen County, In roply to an inquiry as to what stops had been taken to protect tho lives of rulors from assassins, tho New York Tribune tells an Interesting story of am invention of a young Polish school teacher who hat risen rapidly lately through inventions in tho toxtilo arts Ho has managed to mako a garment of silk that Is proof against daggor and bullet. In front, It rosemblos a sweater, not thlckor than tho material U9od for a wi iter overcoat, and Its back Is oxaetlj Ilka that of a waistcoat. Wolghlng alto gether about threo pounds, It is so thin and light that it can bo conven iently worn undor tho upper garments. Its smooth toxturo consists of un bloachcd silk, and its power of re sisting shot and steel is duo to its olastlolty and cohesion obtained from tho peculiar intorwoaving of its threads. Tho heaviest threads carried against a person's chest with a sharp daggor or a pointed Illo, such as was used by Luchenl In his attempt on tho llfo of tho Empress of Austria, re bound Ineffectively from tho soft text ure without leaving any mark. Tho shooting tests made on living poisons protected by this shirt aro oven mora Impressive. Bullets, which, when shot from tho sumo distance, penetrate a thick board, rebound from Its soft toxturo as tho hailstones from a eoat-of-inail and fall to tho ground with blunted points. Gray spots ara tho only marks left Indicating tho piacos whore tho bullets hit tho silk shirt. It is, thoroforo, not to bo wondered at that, despite Its high cost, thero Is a groat Jdemand manifesting Itsolf In certain quarters for this wonderful llfo protector.

Willits, the llrst Populist candidate for Governor of Kansas, has his oyes open, at last. Ho now says: When thoPonullstnartv was formed it was asserted that it was the child of Democracy. I disputed tho charge, but in timo found that I was mistaken. It was tho child of Democracy and it has gouo back to its parent. I opposed fusion from tho day It was suggested and holped form tho middle-of-the-road movemont in tho Ponullst nartv. Thero is no Populist party now. It nas gone out, oi exisienco nnd lots of former Populists liko rnysolf havo joined tho Republican party again rather than to alllllato with tho Demo crats. What memories this rovlves! Don't you remember how tho Record Insist ed away back in '00 that Polk, of North Carolina, and Livingston, of Goorgla, und Ron Terrell, of Texas, had como to Kansas to disrupt tho Republican party In tho Intorosi of Democracy? But what u howl that raised In this nock p' woods! Willits and Bon Terrell oach spoko hero, and didn't wo catch it, though! My! It was awful! But Bon bus gono back to tho Domooratle party (didn't havo fat- to go ) and now Willits has repented Kansas, Friday, February ,7 1902. and conic back to tho Republicans. And hero wo aro at tho old stand, winking and blinking and saying, "I told you so." DAVE LKAIIV, J'HILANTHUOl'IST. Tho llonorablo David Leahy comes to light In tho last Issue of tho Mall & Breezo in a now role, that of philan thropist. His method Is circuitous and interesting. Ho writes: In tho report of tho whoat crop of Kansas for 1001, issued by Secrotary Coburn, thoro is a great lesson in patriotism that cannot bo expressed adequately except in mathematics. Every schoolboy In tho stuto Hhould take down his slato from tho shelf and flguro out how mutiy cubic foot of prido ho can tako out of being a Kansun. In round figures tho stato produced ouough wheat this yoar to mako 10, 1100 0!)J barrels, or about 3,1)10,1)1)5,828 pounds of Hour. To mako this Into good dough It would requlro 122,400, 001 gallons of water. Put this water in barrels, sot them up sldo by sldo in a continuous row and thoy would ex tend 1,451 tnlles. In other words, they would cover tho entlro length of tho Santa Fo rdad from Chicago to Gal veston. To bako this bread, 300,000 cords of cottonwood would bo required. This piled up four feet high and four feet wldo would mako a wall that would c. tond 010 miles or practically from Chicago to Wichita. If all this was baked Into ono mons ter doughnut and tho combined active armies of Spain, Bolgium, Denmark, Greece, Norway and Sweden, Bulgaria and Roumania wero put into tho holo in tho center of It thoy could not eat their way out, allowing them tho oreau ration oi tno Amorloan army, short of 33 years, 7 months nnd 18 days practically a third of a century. Bake it into loaves of eight ounces oach and. Kansas could glvo a loaf to every human boing in tho world and havo enough loft to glvo two loaves per day to every man, woman and child in tho stato for over threo yoars and four months. What I would ask tho school boys of Kansas to do Is take their slato pencils, rcduco this Immense pile of dough to tho thickness of a soda cracker, bako it and find out how many counties as largo as Wyandotte can be carved out of it. I will glvo a book, entitled, "Ono Million Facts." to the first boy who sends mo the answer. IT PAYS TO KA.ISB THE IJBST Bukden, Kansas, Fob. 2, 1002. The Register, Iola, Kansas. Slnco tho lato meeting of tne Im proved Stock Breeders at Topoka I havo heard considerable tnlk of "Im proved Stock" indicating that tho fanners aro getting their oyos opon to tho advantages of Introducing now and better blood into their flocks and herds. With pastures eaten out too closely already and a higher level of values for feed stulTs it is hard to flguro a margin of profit in tho handling of any animal that does not respond quickly to good feed and care nnd grow. into an animal that will com mand tho highest market price. Personally I am glad to know that when a man wants good Angus cattlo ho can find them at Allendalo In Allen county, U. S. A. and would hall with tho day when as good herds of tho other beef breeds and other stock are maintained within tho bordors of tho county. Allon county Is (agriculturally) a stock county. No line of farml ng ha bettor natural advantages for tho Allen county farmer than tho growing and feeding of live stock. Having had an opportunity to in spect tho Shorthorns to bo offered for sale February 12, at Wichita by J, F. Stodder, Burden, Kansas, as adver tised in stock papers it might not bo out of place to glvo tho readers of the Register that are interested in stock a few points in regard to this offering. Tho cattlo aro woll grown but aro not fat and every animal is warranted to bo a breeder. Tho young things bred by Mr. Stoddor aro pastured and fed largely on alfalfa grass and hay and show up in good sappy condition much .better for tho buyer than the corn fed fultoned animal for useful ness in a herd. Parties wishing a string of heifers or cows in lino form to start a' herd or slnglo animals of either sex can find good Individuals hero und as to brood ing the foundation of this herd was good cows with good plain pedigrees and on thosohavo been used good Scotch sires until a largo percent of tho blood of tho young things to bo ollored Is Scotch.

If thero is anything makes a man mad, says tho Atchison Globe, it is to havo a cross-eyed girl wink at him. Tho other day a colored woman was granted a divorce from her whlto hus band In Leavenworth becauso ho was so ornery. It Is said .lorry Simpson will again como out for Congress In tho 7th. Ho may mako a llttlo stir and troublo but not for Long. Somo Osago county boys recently got drunk and stolo a dog. This is certainly a horrible oxumplo to tho youth of tho land. Chas. A.

In a stato where thoro urn so trmnv nviinntii wltli tho hummer this is a great honor. Tho Fort Scott Monitor tolls how ono angry citizen "threshed" another for slander. Naturally such a program wont against tho grain. Tho Times relates how beforo ho married a Leavenworth widow a man had toslgn away his "martial rights." What scrappers they must bo in that section! Albert Blgolow Paino of Kansas, has a clovor story in tho Fobruary Century about a"Don'tIIurry Club." Bosco will probably suo Paino for damages. Tho ovangollst working at Ottawa, knowing tho back-sliding skill of his material, pledges all converts to reg ularly occupy tho front seat at church hereafter. Mrs. Mary Parker, of Emporia, widow of an old soldier who died in want thoro two months ago, is now Informed that she is holross to $400. 000 in Now York. "Tho wicked stand In slippery piacos," quoted an Augnsta preacher as ho gingerly mado his way along a slippery pavement, "but I cannot," and down ho went. A man named Beurtub recently lo cated In Leavenworth and immediately that city started a fund to secure tho Democratic convention which Wichita cannot accommodate. Llndsborg Record: Somo ono has said that woman, owing tohor peculiar mako-un, cannot jump. Hump. Guess that follow nover saw somo of them jump at an offer of marriage. From Loavenworth county comes a story that tho recent cold snap camo on so suddenly that ico frozo on the creoks und ponds catching many frogs as thoy leaped from tho bunk Into the water. Atchison Globe: Whon a woman gets a fur cloak, and hor friends pat her lovingly in passing, sho knows it is not affection that prompts It; thoy want to know If it is genuine, or imi tation. A Galena street car run over and killed a hog tho other day. Every woman who hears of It will hope it was ono of the hogs too often seen Inside tho car. Tho Times says it wolghed about 200. Ben Murdock, admitting that an eastern railroad has excellent features and fine dining service, declares that tho Santa Fo is as vot the onlv rnml that guarantees two pearls in each oyster sorveu. A handkorchtof with tho owner's namo on the corner was found In a Llndsborg hen houso and tho Record says tho unusual annnrition so fright. ened somo of tho fowls thoy haven't oeon seen since. Bont Murdock. who reonntlv de clared that tho Santa Fo is tho only railroad which operates a dining car servico guaranteeing two pearls in every oyster, has been offered a freo trip to California on the Limited. Talk of prosperity! A Wichita man telegraphed a Winfleld man to appear at tho 'ong dlstanco telephone at a certain hour. Whon tho Winflold man showed up tho Wichita man in formed him over tho 'phono that ho would bo down next day. Between LuJunta and Dodgo City tho Santa Fo limited recenty ran 202 miles in 200 minutes and slowed up twice for hot boxos.
