Tin primary election next Tuesday will settle who will represent Kansas In the United Stales senate, for the next term. Senator Long Is looked upon in the nation mow. of the strong men iu the Republican party. There has btutj a steady lire on him since he entered his first race for United States senator. An other man wanted the place theu. Hut It was given to Mr. Long and he ha shown mure ability and influence in Washington than any senator that has been tent from Kunsai In a long series of years. Another mau wants tbe place now and the fight Is con I inued. Through all of this prolonged fight, with bis enemies searching high and low for objections to tbe Senator, tbe npst vicious of bis foes admit that he is honest and that be has great ability. There is no questeon that be fav ors the political policies of Roosevelt and Tuft, and (hat be has favored them. There Is no question as to his high standing with either tbe president or tbe presidential candidate, Tnere is no question that he Is an able statesman. Every objeotion to Senator Long has been founded on the fact of bis voting against oertaln La Follette amendments that the majority of tbe Republlotni were against. Long admire Roosevelt. La Follette bates Roosevelt. Every ipeeoh tbat has been made against Senator Long, if analyzed, will be found to be more of a demo cratic speech than a Republican speech Kansas ranks as one of tbe greatest states In tbe nation, In some particulars out ranks all other states. Kansas should be represented In congress by men who will rank blgb among tbe representatives of tbe other states. In the oounolls of the Republican party of tbe nation Kan sas Is very prominent now, through Sen ator Long. More prominent than she has ever been before. In all probability Senator Long will be easily nominated next Tuesday and as easily elected In November. lie most certainly ought to be and from all Indications will be. But nut bere in his old district, the Big Seventh, he Is entitled to a large majority and Ford county ought to do her share In giving it to him. The writer has never received any personal avors of Senator Lon and has no personal favors to asK of him in the future but he has observed hi in closely for years, from the time that he pro tested against the wave of Populism in Kansas and was temporarily swept awny by it, and later won on the same issues be bad lost on before; every charge that as been brought up against Mr. Long as senator, or as a congressman, bas been viewed by the writer in a wholly npredjudiced way. The Globe-Re publicau believes tbat it has an entirely unbiased opinion upon tbe question of who should be chosen as United States senator on next Tuesday. And In the honest opinion of this paper, Senator ..ong is, by his natural qualifications, by his previous service and by every con sideration, entitled to the vote of eyery good Republican.

If the weather Is very warm, the AQEO OAK 13 PART OF HISTORY. Centuries Old and Washington Clinton Sat Under It. "I was at Kingston during the Clin ton reburial ceremonies on Decoration Day," said a New York man, "and I stood a while beneath the branches of what Is perhaps one of the most re markable old oak trees to bo found anywhere In this country. "Just how old the tree Is no ono knows, but there are records showing that 260 years ago it was a landmark. The tree stands there to-day more than 100 feet high and Its trunk Is nine feet In diameter. Nowhere about It did I discover any sign of decay or declining vigor. "But aside from Its admirable physi cal condition and aspect this old tree has historic interest. The tree stands not a great way from the old senate house, where the state of New York had its birth, and it marks one edge of a plot on which the famous one-legged Dutch governor of the colony, Peter Stuyvesant, built a stockade as a defense for the colonists against marauding Indians. "After the revolutionary war, when Gen. Washington went up from New burgh to visit Gen. George Clinton at Kingston, the two patriots sat be neath the spreading branches of this oak and for hours recounted the events of the long struggle and doubtless dis cussed plans for the future welfare of the country. Who may know but that sDme of the benefits which we en Joy to-day tinder the institutions of our government are results of the discus slons of those two great patriots be neath this grand old tree? I brought myself to think so, at any rate, "A few miles from this historic old oak, an old resident Informed me, is another tree which besides being an ancient landmark Is something of n curiosity. It Is a chestnut tree, with a trunk 21 feet In circumference, from which about six feet from the ground a white elm of large size has grown. The chestnut trunk completely en closes that of the elm, and the expla nation of the curious association Is that at some time a branch of the chestnut was broken off, leaving a cavity in which In time mould and vegetable matter collected and made suitable depth of soil for the seed of the elm, which lodged therein to germinate and grow and become a tree, a veritable part of its unprotest lng host, the mammoth chestnut trunk." rrr tr w rmy&tw isr vb to. t"W OVK TWLm- f tt" rvt UEPOKTOFXUB CONDITION OF Tllli NATIONAL BANK OF COMMERCE At DocljfO City, In tlie State of Kansas, at the close of business, July lfi, li)(tH.

Any attempt at crooked work Is pretty certain to be a failure, and it will put tbo person attempting? it In a very bad position. No Loopholes There. Eugene Walter, the extraordinarily successful young playwright, said at a recent dinner In his honor l:i Xow York: "The playwright, to succeed, mu.tt make his point Inevitably. Every point, by fair means or foul, must be cap tured. Not a loophole, for failure ta creep in, may be left." Mr. Walter smiled. "In fact," said he, "the playwright must be as sure of his point as wan the young lady who took advwitags of the present leap year to propose. " 'She didn't give me a cl.aacc,' her husband explained afterward to -a friend. 'She said, "Will you many me? Have you any objection?" Thus, whether I said yes or no, she had me cornered.' " 'Well, you might have kept silent,' said his friend. " 'That is what I did," the other re plied, 'and she flung herself on my breast, murmuring that silence guvo consent.' " Methodist Church, The usual services will be held next Sunday. The subject for the evening service at 8:00 o'olock will be "God's Method of Choosing a King." All the Lady's Fault. Some one hard up for a subject, it seems, has suggested discussion of 1 a question, "Are literary persons ill mannered?" In this connection a story is told of a minor author who went vis iting in a Boston homo. During the evening ho asked the hostess if she would ask the guests to retire into the little room adjoining the larzo room In which they were gathered, as he wanted the largo room In which to meditate. While it is recorded that the Boston woman granted his re quest and crowded her guests Into a small space, It Is not likely that a hostess In any other part of Iho coun try would have taken the request serl ouBly, so this exhibition of bad man ners must be set down to the exagger ated Idea of hospitality and not the literary propensities of the man.

"My son," said the head of the fam ily after he had read all the sporting news, "here is a good thing for you to remember. I give it to you out of the store of my experience. Had I under stood it at your years it would have saved me a good many mistakes: "Always notice the way your friends laugh. By their laugh you may know their character. "The laughter of human beings is based on the vowels. If a man laughs in A the open tone of A which Is ah then he Is frank and honest, a little faiul ?f noise and excitement, perhaps, and perhaps of a somewhat flcklo dis position; but at any rate honest.

And, Willie, it Is about time you went to bed now." "No woman ever did have a sense of humor," remarked the head of the family of the family as he went out and silently closed the door after him.

You must remember when I bring my foot down on anything it bears weight." : "Nonsense!" ; "What? You mean to ridicule my assertion, James Henry Butler?" "Oh, no, my dear. I merely wished to remark that a foot as small as the one you possess could not possibly bear weight." There was a long pause. "You really think so, James?
