Here is a place where an industrious miner can make more wages than he can hope to receive from any employer and at the same time be his own boss. M. Deitzer, of the Chew Shovel Co., of Loraine, Ohio, was in the camp the past week, interesting some of the operators in a shovel which his company is putting in-! handle the ores. One of these shovels is now in operation at the mines of the American h&Z Co., at Carterville, where it is doing excellent work. With the large faces in this camp, and the amount of room the mines have underground here, makes it an easy matter to use a shovel of this kind to advantage. ' It will reduce the cost of shovel iog.to 4c per ton or better, which means a big saving to the opera tors in mining, and a sfeady and uniform tonnage each day, at a minimum expense. This is the most important move, in the way of reducing the cnt of operating that has yet been brought about, and one that all operators will hail with de light. - We understand that at least one of the shovels will be installed in the camp at once, and no doubt with the success which it will show," others. will quickly be in stalled.

Ambitious young lawyers might get a good tip from a study of the returns from the re cent elections. Fred S. Jackson, comparatively unknown until a couple of years ago, when he was nominated by the Republicans for attorney general, was re-elected by a bigger plurality than that received by Taft or Stubbs. Mr. Jackson carried every one of the 105 counties in Kansas. Why? Because during his first term he "made good" in the enforcement of the law. John Schenk, county attorney of Shawnee county, and a Demo crat, too. was re-elected by a plurality of about 1800, notwith standing the county went Kepuo lican by a plurality of about six thousand. The Topeka Capital, the official Republican paper of the state, advocated the election of Schenk. Schenk "made good" during his first term, and the people want him to keep'np the good work. Mr. Pile, county attorney 01 Labette county was turned down by the people of that county last week because he failed to "make eood'Mn the way of enforcing the prohibitory law. Mr. Caldwell, a Democrat, naa been re-elected county attorney of Bourbon county because he made irood." The county went Republican for president and governor. The vounc lawyer wno expects tn tret to tOe front and make a mark for himself that he will be nrnnd of can well afford to pon der over these facts, and it should nnt take him long to make up his mind to "make good" in the way of seeing that law is enforc ed, and not violated. The man in this day and age who can not see that law enforce ment has come and to stay is very blind indeed. Jas. W. Lindsay Daad. James W. Lindsev. one of the Kpet farmers in Cherokee county, died at his late home five miles southwest of this city on last Saturday evening. Mr. Lindsey bad been ailing for some time.
