HONOR FOR RICHMOND SCHOOLS.
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
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

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

This achievement concerns civiliza
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!

Although she was fully fifty years of
age and exceedingly stout, the" com

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

humble homes were shaded by orange

One day soon after the act of gal

Weak Men, Too, Are Made Healthy
BY TAKING VITONA
For it vitalizes the machinery of life as
no other remedy ever did before, giving
natural strength and vigor to every func
tion of the human body, causing seem
ingly miraculous cures after other treat
ment fails. Vitona's Avonderful merit
makes the blood circulate and makes it
pure, beautifies the skin and clears the
complexion, helps the liver and improves
digestion , enlivens the nerves and makes
them strong, heals inward irritation and
cures weak kidneys, catarrh of the
bladder, etc., makes tho fieh more
plump and the muscles more elastic.
Thousands are praising Vitona and
every weak, nervous, dyspeptic invalid
should try it, for then being made
healthy they will be made happy.
Mrs. J. A. McCormick, Lancaster, O.,
writes: " I was terribly run down. My
husband has told me since that I was so
nervous, despondent and irritable that
he often felt life had no charms for him.
But now all is changed. I saw Vitona
advertised and he got it for me. Oh how
good it made me feel. My back quit
aching, my nervous spells ended, my
appetite got better and my sleep refresh
ing. I pas3 my months with little or no
pain and life once more seems rosy and
bright thanks to Vitona, the best friend
a weak woman ever found. My husband
likes it too it makes him stronger."
Vitona costs one dollar a bottle or six
bottles for five dollars, and while Tnn

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
