Advertise in the Herald.
St. Louis Post-Dispatch (Dem):
President Roosevelt is greatly admir
ed by the young, progressive and ag
gressive elements of hli party. They
like his daring, bis dash, his con
tempt for precedents, bis masterful
way of bending the party bosses to
bis will, his defiance and subsequent
placating of the Wall street magnates.
His nomination represents the will
of the Republican voters however dis
tasteful itmiy be to ra iny of the old
"war horses," and government mules
of the party.
Among others, tbe state Journal
mentions John Q. Royce as a probable
candidate for Secretary of State two
years hence. We have no objection to
Royce being made Secretary of State
except that we would rather see htm
succeed Reeder as Cmgressraan. We
believe the Job would be more to his
liking aud the Improvement ovpr the
present Incumbent more noticeable.

He Had a Friend on the Jury.
The late Judge William A. Stewart
of the Supreme bench of Baltimore
was very fond cf a joke, and he bad
an inexhaustible fund of good stories.
On one occasion he told how, when he
was a practicing attorney, he obtained
a verdict for a larger sum than the
amount of his claim. After the ver
dict had been rendered he asked a
Juror whom he knew well how it came
about that the verdict was far more
than he asked.
"It was this way," the Juror replied.
"A number of the Jurors were against
you, Mr. Stewart, while I thought you
ought to have what you asked for.
Finally, as a compromise, we agreed
that each Juror should put down the
amount you ought to have, and that
the total, divided by twelve, the num
ber of the Jurors, should be the ver
dict. I knew that some of the Jurors
would put down nothing or a very
small sum, so I put down a large
amount, so as to be sure you would
get what you asked."
The result was that when the total
was divided by twelve the quotient
was more than Mr. Stewart asked.
What You Pay For Rent
So far as yon arc personally concern
ed represents a LOSS. It practi
cally amounts to cne third of your in
come at Jcast consideration and some
times more. This money, if SAVED
AND PROPERLY INVESTED, in a
few years will pay for' a home and
then instead of eking out a mere ex
istence and having' nothing left at tbe
end of a stated period, ycu will find
yourself the possessor of desirable and
The renter seldom makes much pro
gress. He works to make others rich,
and sometimes he will work harder to
do this than when working on his own
account. THERE'S A BETTER
WAY and I will tell you about it, as
I have several choice farms for sale
any of which will make an ideal home.
