President Roosevelt and bis admin istration have faced the problems of improving the laws and enforcing the laws with i good, faith so entirely above reproach that no crltieism can justly be brought against their policy, their methods, or their motives. They have been just'as ready and willing to bring action against the coal xt rust as against the Northern Securities. But the present anthority of the' United States over commerce Is confined to interstate' matters. The anthracite? coal industry is wholly .'within, the boundaries of Pennsylvania. ' No one knowing President Roosevelt's rela tion to the great strike could possibly suppose that any personal, disposition to shield a particular combination furnished a reason for failure to pro ceed against the anthracite monopoly under the Sherman Act. The great service that President Roosevelt has rendered, and Its importance cannot be overstated, Is to give the whole country a new sense of respect for law. The gentlemen who form the North ern Securities Company certainly had no evil designs against the welfare of any class of people; but it may fairly be said that they tried to do in an in direct way waat the laws forbade them to do in a direct way. From 'The Progsess of the World," in the American Monthly Review of Reviews for April. ' To The Friends of Dr. Carl Swenson Dcceased- Ever since the untimely death' of Dr Carl Swensson there have been repeat ed suggestions by 'the citizens of Lindsborg and other friends of the de ceased, that a vault be erected at some suitable place on the college grounds as his last resting place. Many have expressed a desire to con tribute to a fund for that purpose. To bring about definite results the Com mercial Club of Lindsborg, Kansas, by unanimous vote decided to place itself at the head of the movement and receive contributions. Dr. Swensson's life was one spent In the service of bis fellowmen. He has been a potent figure in the upbuilding of the west, and by wora and deed furnished valuable contributions to the ideal side of our development. No more befiting tribute can be reared to bis memory than such a monument, built by voluntary contribution. It is the intention of the committee to have the vault ready by June 1st, when the Augustana Synod, of which he was a member, convenes at Lings borg. Sums of one dollar and up will be received and duly accounted for. Those who desire to contribute to t his fund, will please do so as early as pos sible. Direct correspc ndnce and money to Mr G.

' Why People Drink. y An Italian Society of Temperance answered this question thus: One drinks because he feels happy, anoth er because he feels lonesome, one drinks because it is dry, another be cause it rains; one drinks because he worked hard, another because be hag nothing to do; one drinks because an old friend has come, another because hli friend is departing; one drinks because be feels warm, another be cause he feels cold; one.d rinks that he may sleep, another because he cannot; one drinks because there is a wedding, another because there Is a funeral.

"A Leavenworth woman," says the Western Life, "was recently cured of an 'imaginary illness by the use of bread pills which cost her $3 a dozen, but the physician who furnished them being a good hearted fellow, let. her husband into the scheme and remitted to him the $3. . .. , . "Moral: If the price is right the goods must be right "Ex. . Conscience In Work. ' Talents and skill tell for much, but conscience in work tells far more. The mechanic or clerk who, beyond his stated salaiy, beyond even his ob ligations to his employer, or the de mands which public opinion could make upon him, exerts himself 'to make bis work as perfect as he can. and delights in its thoroughness and excellence apart from any private benefit it can render him, has a value which can never be computed. It matters not what the work.be, wheth er it be done with ' the spade of a laborer, the pen of the clerk, the brush of the artist, or the voice of the statesman. Such people are sought far and wide; there are places always open to them, and their ser vices are always at a premium. Ex. For Sa'e.

Then he sent around the necessary medicine. Netawaka Times. Don't think that the rich escape punishment.

Yes answered one of the men, and If you could get us some whiskey, why It's tbe finest thing to clean tbera with.' 'O, she answered, If whiskey will clean them I will send down a bottle I have up stairs and you may try it.' Tbe men washed the frames wl h soap and wa ter and of course drank the whiskey. When she saw tbe frames bright and glittering she remarked, 'And so whiskey cleaned tlu.se frames ?' 'Yes' said one of them, 'It was whiskey that did It.'

Sven Hedln, the Swedish explorer, thus relates bow ho and his party were captured In Tibet and turned back from their Journey to Lassa: "We per ceived a crowd of horsemen gallop out from among the tents and rldo to ward ua. - They consisted of Kamba Bombo, governor pf the Nakchu, and Nanso Lama, accompanied by several other dignitaries besides officers and soldiers armed as if for a campaign sixty-seven of them In all, each man mounted and dressed in handsome ceremonial robea. Kamba-Bombo was surrounded by his staff. He wore a costume of yellow silk, had on a red head-dress uid Mongol boots of green velvet and was mounted on a big gray mule with a costly saddle and had his saddle-cloth embroidered with silver and turquoises. , He was in tho very best humor, now that he had us com pletely In his power, and declared cat egorically that no matter who we wore we must retrace bur steps if we did not wish to have our beads cut off, at the same time drawing his band sig nificantly across his throat. I found It was perfectly useless to argue with him; he had Imperative orders from the dalal lama. Therefore he pre sented me with a couple of hones and a flock of sheep and appointed an es cort of three ofneers and twenty men to accompany us as far as the river Satyu Sanpo on our way back." Burial of 8ir Walter Scott. It was a bleak and stormy autumn day, with an Impenetrable gray iky frowning over a lowering landscape, when tho' mile-long funeral proces sion set forth from AbboUford. With one common voice of woe tbe coro nach of a nation walled over tbe hills, the sad gray land being all In keeping with the nodding of black plumes and the slow pace of the horses, says a writer In the Book-Lover. The road traversed on bis last long Journey had been one of Soott's favorite drives, and the most pathetio Incident of all was the pause of the cortege on the brow of Bemerslde Hill. The horses that drew his lifeless body were the carriage horses, and not knowing their master was dead, they stopped of their own accord at the spot where Peter Matheson had always drawn them up, that Sir Walter, from where he .sat, might look down and enjoy his favor Ito view. Every mourner noticed the unexpected pause and tbe eyes of tbe grown men filled with Involuntary tears when they learned the reason. Thus they burled Blr Walter Scott; and Caledonl. stern and wild, re ceived Into her arms ber marvelous, well-loved child. My method of selling land will bring buyers for Kansas farms.
