The Richmond city schools had a prominent part in the Indiana State Teachers' Association at Indianapolis this -week. This was a teachers' meeting and the Richmond teachers usually have a "front seat" at such gatherings and do well their part in whatever contributes to teaching "the young idea how to shoot." But the city teachers were not on exhibition at this meeting that is directly but the results of their work were in evidence. . 4 11 There was an exhibit of manual training work from the Richmond schools that attracted the attention and the most complimentary criticisms from all who examined it. Prof IIis?r may well feel proud of the results of his work in the city schools. lie was the modest recipient of many com pliments from his fellow teachers. There were two musical organizations from the high school, the high school orchestra and the high school chorus. These young people added much to the entertainment and pleasure of the largest body of teachers that ever gathered at the annual association. Prof. Earhart was con gratulated on every hand for the th rough preparation and precise rendi tion of each musical selection. The Richmond schools not only showed what they are, but set a pace for other schools throughout the state. Richmond schools are ahead in another very important policy. The wages paid teachers in Indiana was a subject of both special and general discussion, and it was found that withe party." This is just the kind of Richinond pays better salaries than any other town in the state. In the newest and in the absolutely fire proof theater occurred- the greatest disaster of the kind that eer happened in the history of the world. The country stands appalled at the awful catastrophe. Many are glad that the old year is numbered with the other dead years. It has been a series of disasters and at a great cost of human life. Many ask why, but there is no answer. Some attribute so many disasters to our greed for material things, and others think we are growing mad to '"spend our years as a tale that is told." One of our exchanges said yesterday, and very truly, too, that the whole sentiment expressed at the love feast could be summed up in these few word-;: Roosevelt for President, Beveridge for senator, success for the party.'' This s just the kind of sentiment the Indiana Republicans want. They want these two men and the- act very much like they want siirce-s. (iovernor Durbiu's advice, "hold fast to that which is good," was timely and most enthusiastically received by the members of the love feast. There wa one thing specially manifest at the love feast the oilier day. The names Fairbanks and Beveridge always called forth the most hearty applause. This is the best evidence of how ideal statesmen stand in the estimation of the ran1: and lile of their party. James P. fioodrieh seems to be the choice of everybody for chairman of the Re!Mb!iean state central committee. It is verv evident that he will -sue i'vil himself.

(Louisville Herald.) flermany made in 1902 the largest jrain of population in many years. There was but a small increase in the number of births, but there was, on the other hand, a remarkable reduc tion in the number of deaths. Py the avoidance of Avar, improved sanitary con. lit ions, education stimulated and diffused and a healthful increase of prosperity benefiting all classes, (Jer many has succeeded in making a substantial increase of population, without an increase of the birth rate. This achievement concerns civiliza tion itself. Put satisfactory as are these fig ures, all is not couleur de rose in the CJerman empire. The reaction pro duced by militarism has imparted baleful strength to socialism. In a recent debate in the Reichstag, Paron Von Kardoff declared that "Germany is on an express train, rolling with wind velocity into the socialized state of the future." Tre ranks of the army were, the Paron affirmed, filled with adherents of socialism, adding that, unless the government took radi cal steps to check the socialistic propaganda, the empire would find itself face to face with certain revo lution. The Paron advocated the withdrawal of the right of suffrage from all who professed revolutionary I or republican doctrines, and urged Catholics and Protestants to forget differences in the face of a common foe. Paron Von Kardofl's remedy would, we fear, precipitate rather than prevent revolution. The Baron's attack was boldly met by the Social ists, who, through Herr Iiichter, made a savage attack on the army. He de nounced the brutality and immoral ity prevalent among the officers of the army. One officer in the Emper or's bodyguard, he affirmed, had been guilty of 1,200 instances of mal treatment of subordinates. If such conditions prevail under the Emper or's eyes, how much more must they disgrace and embitter army life out side that close circle? Criticising the maintenance of the East Asiatic brigade and of a fleet station with fourteen vessels, Uerr Riehter said: STARVE THEM OUT! , Why not starve the germs to death? Scott's Emulsion will do it. The germs of consumption are an invading army number ing millions upon millions; they must all be fed or they will soon die of starvation. A lung a little below "par" in vitality is just to their liking. Why not put new life into it? Scott's Emulsion feeds the lungs. It fills the blood with nourishing food for all the weak parts. Good food means life. Life means re sistive force. Germs cannot live on heal thy tissue. Scott's Emulsion and good fresh air drive out the germs of consumption.

Germany never suffered from lack of naval protection ,as our navy has always been more promptly on. the ground than the navies of other nations. German tradesmen abroad have much less to complain of from the policy of the empire than the tradesmen at home from the agrarian policy of the government. I recom mend that Ave present Southwest Afri ca to the Boers, with whom we have so much sympathy." The defense of the army offered by the minister of Avar does not strength en t lie case of the government. The minister admitted that during the year fifty officers, 577 non-commissioned officers and good service men Avere punished for mistreatment of private soldiers. One officer in 400 and one non-commissioned officer in 120 had been found guilty of misuse of authority. The admission is a painful evidence of military brutal- i 1 t A".

Unlike the majority of Florida negroes, who bask hi idleness until an empty larder or depleted ward robe compels them to earn a little mon ey, she Avas always ready to work. Her husband had been wont to con sume a great part of her earnings in drink, but it was commonly reported that during the three years which bad elapsed since bis death she bad accu mulated a considerable sum of money. The excellence of her cooking brought her into constant demand when the lit tle town was tilled with northern boarders. She was also accounted the best singer in Pentonville. Although she was fully fifty years of age and exceedingly stout, the" com bined attractions of good cooking, line singing and the possession of a bank account would have made her a for midable rival to the young girls of Egypt, the name commonly given to that part of Pentonville occupied by the colored people, had she chosen to enter the matrimonial lists. In fact, she had received several offers of marriage, but had rejected all such Dcpuci'JLoi is jyUh intense scorn." say in';,' that one" husband was one too many for a sensible AAom an. ' However, it began to be whispered about that since the arrival of Mr. James IVndergast, a tall young mulat to from Georgia, the citadel had been successfully attacked. James possessed a magnificent tenor voice, and when it rang out in "pra'r meet in"" above the other voices Aunt Savannah clasped her hands and rolled her eyes in ec stasy, while her clear soprano was hushed in admiring silence. When James escorted Aunt Savannah home from meeting one eA-cning, Sis Sukey Johnson observed to Creesy. Aunt Sa vannah's married daughter: 'To' de L.awd. Creesy. 'pears like yer ma done got cotch at las' by dat Georgy sucker!" Aunt Savannah had lived alone in her one room cabin since the death of her husband. Near by stood the cabin in v.-hich Creesy lived with her bus band and tAvo children. Roth of these humble homes were shaded by orange and lemon trees, and in the plots of ground in the rear some cabbages were groAving. Between the tAvo houses a rudely constructed henhouse and a chicken yard surrounded by a slat fence seemed to receive more ca.re than either cabins or gardens. One day soon after the act of gal lantry which had caused Sukey John son's comment preparations for some great event were being made in Aunt Savannah's cabin. All day she had been cleaning and cooking. As it near ed sunset her labors appeared to be completed. The table, covered Avitlt a snoAvy cloth and neatly set. stood in the center of the room, nonquota of roses, honeysuckles, jasmines and ole anders arranged in cracked cups and pitchers steed in every available spot and filled the room with fragrance. On the hearth, where the fire had burn ed to a few embers, stood a platter of fried chicken, and the roasted SAA-eet potatoes and corn pone were still cov ered Avith the ashes to keep them warm.

NO OTHER REMEDY exerts so ?xd an influence for health as that recently discovered remedy called .Vitona, simply because by soothing and healing internally it aids old Mother Nature to rejuvenate the nerves, li-er, kidneys, etc., also in making the blood pure and making it circulate.
