Tee following was Bent to Speaker
Elder, of the Kansas Legislature, by a
party of yond h Hen, la regard to LU
recent protest against tho panfaga of the
woman's auft?ie till:
Speaker E!dri
Bin Having read your protest Miunnt
wonion's suffrage, containing the ouser
tion that "when the laws of nature
should bo change the female organiza
tion aa to make it possible for them to
alojr 'baBS,'" you would then be quite
willing for such a bill to become a law,
we the undersigned, Immediately began
the practice of singing "bafio." llemem
berlng how alight a concemnon "a change
in tho laws of nature" would be to ob
tain the consent of bo great a statesman
as youroelf, we hereby inform you that
we have succeeded bo well that we
can slag "baHa" about aa well as some
of our male frlendn.
However, in our practice we have dis
covered that "baas" la not no denirable a
musical quality as you eeem to imagine.
In fact, without the aid of the soprano it
is very mouotonoua, Indeed. We have
found that no really great musical pro
duction has ever been written confuting
of ubasn" alone. It is of about as much
ufio as the solid foundation of a house to
which the superstructure haa never
been added. Further,a coarae,rough voice
1b not always tho sign of even superior
physical strength sometimes quite the
contrary. We respectfully recommend
to your nolle the science of nccouetics,
which demonstrates that the vibrations
of sound multiply many thousands of
times in direct ratio, as they ascend the
the' scale. Hence, It follows that tho so
prano voice must have a greater oom
mand of the tension and llexlblllty of the
vocal chords, and the singer must have
more sclcntitlo, knowledge, whether nat
ural or acquired, than can poEsibly be
used by the singer of "bass."
Now, we have become tired of listen
ing perpetually to the dull, monotonous,
growling 4,bas8n notes of "bass" (base?)
politicians, and we are quite convinced
that the perfect and triumphant anthem
of hariaoaloua government requires the
higher, sweeter and purer notes of the so
prano. We are of the opinion that all
futuro successful statesmen must and
will learn to sing soprano as well
aa "bass," We are equally cortain
that our defunct Senatorial Representa
tive is now sorry that he did not listen a
little more attentively to the treble half
of the song of hid constituents.
V e deem a word to the wiso to ba suf
ficient. We wish to vote.

From Column's Rural World we clip
the following complimentary notice of
A. J. Child, who8e,iulvertifiomwit appears
on the i:ith page of this paper:
Many reader of the Rural World will be
pleoned to lenrn that Col. A.). Child, for
twenty years the purchaniDtf agent in St.
Louis for the Patrona of KuHbandry, has
been eolectod by tho executive committee of
the Farmers' and Laborers' Union to nerve
them in a similar capacity. Thin in demon
strative evidenco of faithful Service for
nearly a generation. Tho children of his
early day are the men of to-day, and have
irrown up with him in tho buninenn both of
buying what they want and nelling what
they have had to soil. In the matter of buy
ing the thounand and one things sold in n
great city and wanted in the country bis
twenty years' oiperience has given him un
exampled opportunities for buying on the
closest posHible margiun, especially when a
number club together and purchase staple
goods in bulk. This refers to evorthing the
farmer wants, whether it be for wagons,
plows, oewing machines, fruit tree sprayers,
buggies, carriages groceries, dry goods,
boots and shoes, or indeed Anything that ia
called for; and wo doubt not, he is able to
buj and slxip at very low rates when ordered
is quantities.
On the other hand, in the way of selling
the produce of the farm, his high reputation
on the street and among buninrss men gen
erally m W unououtioned jud', both Ct th$
markets and of values, afford him tho bent
poflnible opportunities for securing tho bent
money that oan be gotten for wheat, corn, .
oatrtfWoo), hides, butter, honey, c gs and ail
kindn of farm tnorchnndiso. In the matter
of wool he is probably the boot Judgs in the
city. Of this we have no manner of doubt,
and his annual sales and the timtlmoniali
which we have annually published from his
customers testify to this in unmistakable
We have written thia in the intcront of our
readers. If they want to buy in lots eerl
tho order and the money to him; if they
havo anything to sell send It to him and re
ly on his lofit judgment. We have no fear
of their being disappointed.
