All subscriptions are payable strictly in advance. Entered at the postoffice in Baxter Springs, Kansas, as second class mail matter. THURSDAY, MARCH 11, 1909. Penny Wise; Pound F oollsh. It is very short sighted busi ness for Baxter Springs to longer be without adequate fire protec tion. The recent loss of taxable property is enough to pay for fire protection for a long time. The taxes on the property des troyed would be enough to pay for several fire hydrants a long time. Then, too, the fact of a town having fire protection goes a long way in inducing people to build homes and improve prop erty. Men do not like to invest money in buildings and other property where there is no pro tection from the fiery elements. Again, the saving in insurance is quite an item when a town has good fire protection. . . There should be six or eight fire plugs on Military street, and they should be put in at once. We understand the water com pany will make a very reasonable rate for the fire plugs. If there had been a fire plug handy Sunday, morning Baxter Springs would not now be mourn ing the loss of one of its finest business blocks and a couple of firms would not now be out of business. Baxter Springs can not longer afford to be penny wise and pound foolish. People do not object to paying taxes, providing they get something for what they pay, and it is high time that the heaviest taxpaying part of the city had some fire protection. . Every time a building is burned it is a distinct loss to tne entire town. Taxable property is de stroyed, and the taxes must be raised on what property is left. The fire on Sunday morning de stroyed thousands ' of dollars worth of property. The tax on it would be quite an item. This item must be raised on what property remains.

Sometimes a man is so busy eettincr a lodge grip that he loses his grip on his business. Man is an admirer of the beau tiful. He invariably selects the umbrella that has the prettiest handle. Behold the patient ox. He vaunts no speed records, but he cretst he load to the barn all the same. A little vanity is a good thing in a man. It will usually keep him from going to town collar- less and coatless. If a woman paid as much at tention to the picking out of a man as she does to a hat, how much happier she .would be.
