President McKinley has start ed on his journey across the con tinent to the Pacific coast. It is a whole lot easier for most people to tell others how to be good than to be that way them selves. It is not only one church or in dividual who has all the trouble in this world." They all come in for their share. Judge Hazen of the District Court of Shawnee county, has de cided the Topeka Mayorality con test in favor of Parker, the Dem ocratic candidate. There is about 26 thouand acres of unoccupied school land in this county. There is also about 69 thousand acres of government ' land subject to homestead entry. Sense is a good thing to have Cents are also necessary in every well regulated family. It requires both sense and cents to make dollars. The use of common sense in the head may make plen ty of copper cents in the pockets. Ex. When you hear a fellow howl ing around that his politics and his religion are the only ones, have pity on the poor deluded mortal and content yourself that the poor creature never had the opportunity to learn better. If you really believe" that way you had better keep it to yourself. The tax commission is prepar ing a law for enactment by the next legislature which will make some radical changes in the sys tem of levying state taxes. The new schedule provides for levy ing the tax on the population in stead of the property valuation, If it is adopted the agricultural and sparsely settled counties will have their taxes reduced while the populous counties will have to pay more. What is the law, anyway? Judge Garver, of Topeka, says the biennial election law is un constitutional. It is now up to the supreme court. Judge West who is assistant attorney general says the law is good. If Judge Garver were the supreme court, his opinion would be law; if Judge West were in power, his opinion would be. Is law the whims of lawyers? Don't the people have something to say? Is a legisla ture a mere form? Why not turn this country over to the National Bar association and let the law yers run it? They might as well pay the taxes,, as they boss the job of running the country any way, Emporia Gazette. If in Tennessee 900,000 people had died of famine and plague; if New York instead of a million more had 50,000 less people than in 1891; if, although many sec tions had wholly escaped, 5,000, 000 people in the United States bad yielded up their lives in five years because of hunger we Would have but the parallel of the appalling conditions in India just revealed by the new census. Many of the Southern Indian provinces with good crops have grown in numbers, but the cen tral states, which would normal ly show an increase of 1,500,000, have lost a million a total loss of 2,500,000. And these figures are dwarfed by the harvest of death in Oodeypur; where 45 per cent, of the people have perished, and in Bhopaul, whose population is less by 808,000 than in 1891. Ev en Bombay, ' Royal and dower royal, I the Queen," so Kipling quotes her is 50,000 less of a city than she was ten years ago. These results are not all; they are not even the worst that fam ine has left. Weakened bodies, mourning mothers, emaciated, ghastly "convalescents" who will never again be well, slaughtered buffalo that will plow no more, ruined villages, weed-grown fields all these are due to the years that money would have made im possible. Five million people have died preventable deaths, twenty mil lion more have suffered beyond description, while the world has made merry over fat years, and while the Government directly responsible for India's ill-fare has spent hundreds of millions how? In making war upon another people; in making South Africa a worse desert than Bhopaul; in farm-buring and deportations; in more suffering, more anguish, more sorrows, more corpses. N. Y. World. Prof. Newcomb, the astrono mer, discussing the advance made in that science during the last century, says that mankind is only beginning to learn some thing of the truth; that the great est victory of the astronomers in the nineteenth century was the determination of the exact motion of the solar system, which is moving in space at the rate of 40,000 miles an hour, but no one can tell whence it came or whith er it goeth. Another important improvement is the application of mechanical methods for re cording astronomical phenomena. An astronomer of a few yearsago was compelled to keep his eyes upon the stars and sketch inac curately and imperfectly the ob jects that passed before his vis ion. The introduction of auto matic photography gives him an exact record of every event among the heavenly bodies, al though he may see nothing of it himself. ChicagoRecord Herald Steve Caye, who represented Haskel county in the legislature last winter, is still on the trail of the western Kansas prairie dog. He succeeded in inducing the Legislature to appropriate $5000 for their extermination and now he wants to know why the work of destruction has not been com menced. The bill provided that the professors of the State Agri cultural college should be allow ed to use whatever portion of the appropriation was necessary to discover a " sure-kill " poison. Mr. Cave wants to know why the professors have n't done some thing. He intended going to Manhattan to see the regents but found that they had gone on a trip through several nearby states to visit other agricultural col leges. Mr. Cave says that some thing must soon be done or the western Kansas citizens will take the matter in their own hands. Topeka Capital. Armour & Co. are sending a car of eggs to California from here, and in talking of their big business out of here, Henry Mil ler gave us a fact which was sur prising. In shipping a car of chickens to California at this time of year the eggs laid during the eight days of transit about pays the freight. The car will hold about 3,000 chickens and each day the eggs are gathered and at the end of the journey 100 cases of eggs will have been fill ed, which when sold in California at 15 cents per dozen will realize $450 which amount will pay the charges on the car. Cases are taken along and all calculations made to care for the daily supply of eggs. The Kansas hen is sure a good thing. Eldorado Repub lican. It is not always the fellow who wears the largest holes in the knees of his trousers or presses the most cushions at church whoH is the best Christian, Our Correspondents. ? v ODEE ITEMS. Grass and all crops that were put in are coming out nicely since the rain we had last Sunday. Mr. Gruemken and Henry Gruem ken Jr. went to the Cimarron Mon day to get a bunch of cattle which Rev. Kleinhans bought while he was here. The Odee township board met at Borger's Monday. Mr. Gruemken is getting ready to build a large barn which he will put up some time this year. Henry Eckhoff, Trustee of Odee twp., is through assessing the peo ple. Henry Gruemken came up from Mr. Lane's Sunday to help his father get some cattle from Bob Maples. There is quite a lot of talk over taking down the fences on govern ment land. It seems like every one thinks it is a detriment to this coun try. We don't see how it could do any good because there are hundreds of quarters that people are now pay ing taxes on, which they surely will not if they have to throw their pas tures open. Martin Gruemken was out look ing for a horse Monday. Martin Buck and Rev. Eschbach went to Meade Saturday. Mr. Winters has the finest rye in the country. It is about two feet high and is heading out. Brinkmans have already got let tuce and radishes to eat. There was no church services Sun day as it rained all day. Dutch. The tracklaying crew on the Rock Island was shipped into Liberal, Saturday, taken to the front Sunday and went to work Monday morning. The track is now across the Beaver and complete for several miles out on the south flats. The Rock Island is erecting a section house at the first station north of the Beaver. The road will erect such houses and put down a well every ten miles, and a crew of section men will work five miles each way from such stations. Hardesty Herald. A. H. Burtis, special agent of the United States land office, has re ceived instructions from the land department at Washington to at once remove all fences which haye been built by cattlemen around gov ernment land in western Kansas. The order has created intense ex citement. The department has in structed Special Agent Burtis to notify all offenders to remove fences at once. If the cattlemen refuse, Mr. Burtis is directed to secure the necessary assistance and remove the fences himself. Cimarron Jack- sonian. Prison binding twine, will be sold to farmers this season at cents per pound in small lots, or 8 cents in lots of 10,000 pounds or over. This is two cents a pound cheaper than twine sold last year. The re duction is caused by the drop in the cost of raw material. The prices fixed by the prison management this time are the same as the trust gets from the dealers. So the dealers can, if they wish, buy of the prison factory instead of the twine trust The only difference is that if they deal with the prison factory they must pay cash. The farmers, buy ing direct from the prison factory, can save two cents a pound on their twine. Ex. The Presiding Elder of the Metho dist church failed to adjust the dif ferences existing in the church, and a division is inevitable. Those who are opposed to Rev. Fay met on Wednesday night and determined to withdraw from the church so long as Rev. Fay remains here as pastor. The Union church people kindly offered the use of their church for Sunday morning services, and the offer was accepted. A contract has been made with Dr. Severance to preach Sunday mornings at a liberal salary. Rev. Severance will preach to the people and all denominations are cordially invited to attend the services. Rev. Henry will preach to the regular Union congregation in the evenings. It is unfortunate fox the Methodist church that the Presiding Elder did not succeed in ending the trouble, but he held out the hope that per haps he could arrange a transfer in sixty or ninety days, or at a time when it did not look so much like Rev. Fay was forced out under pres sure. But it now matters little to those who have seceded from Mr. Fay, they will enjoy good preaching until the next conference makes a change. Garden City Herald. Down in Arkansas a man who desires the privelege of stepping up to a bar and taking a drink, must have an individual license, which "costs $5 per year.
