THE SCHOD LOS GOVERNOR HODGES SIGNED SEN ATE BILL NO. 51 BY DAVIS OF BOURBON COUNTY. CARRIES APPRDPRIATiON OF $225,( Bill Establishes State Text Book Com mission For the Purpose of Choos ing Text Books to Be Used In Common and Hiah Schools of the State. Topeka, Kan. Governor George II. Hodges has signed senate bill No. 51, by Davi3, of Bourbon county, which is the bill for the state publication of Rchool text books. The bill caries with it an appropriation of $225,000 for the purpose of enlarging the state printing plant and purchasing the rights to books desired for text books in the common and high schools of Kansas. Practically all of the school books now in use in, Kansas have been adopted and contracted for up to 1917, with the result that the state wiil not commence the publication of school books, except perhaps two or three texts, much before that year. The bill establishes a state text book commission for the purpose of choosing text books to be used In the common and high schools of the state. This commission is empowered to write these books itself, to hire per sons to write books for it, to have text books compiled, or to purchase the state rights to satisfactory text books, or to condemn and purchase the state rights to such books as can not be purchased otherwise, if de.' sired. This commission is composed of the chancellor of the State University, the president of the State Agricultural college, the president of the Krnporia State Normal school, the governor, the state printer, the state superinten dent of public instruction, the secre tary of the state board of agriculture and two others to be appointed by the governor, one of whom shall be a county superintendent and one a city superintendent. The members draw no salary, except that the twe appoln ' tive members draw $5 per diem for time actually spent in meeting with the commission. The commission, shall elect a secretary, who shall main tain his office in the Stain House and who shall keep the acocunts and pro ceedings of the commission. The sec-i iPtary is required ta inform himself of text books proopsed to the commit-1 Fion for adoption and sh'ill be pre pared to give his opinion of such books to the commission. The mortgage registration tax, turned down by the legislature four years ago and two years ago, was pass ed by the house, having already been passed by the senate. The vote on final roll call was 75 to 21. Many ef forts were made to amend it, but only a few of the amendments offered were incorporated into the bill and none of them changed it materially. As passed, the bill provides for a mortgage regis tration fee or tax of 25 cents per $100 per year, and exempts mortgages from WESTERN CANADA'S PHENOMENAL DEVELOPMENT ITS PERMANENCY VERY LITTLE QUESTIONED. There have been booms In almost every civilized country and they were looked upon as such, and in the course all other forms of taxation. Its friends of time the bubble waB pricked and and its enemies differ as to the effect they burst. But in no country has the it will have in actual operatoin. development been as great nor as rapid, wnether in city, or in country, as in Western Canada.

It has an advantage that Chicago did not have, for no country In the world's history has attracted to Its borders a larger of this country and Us flag, and right number of settlers In so short a time, the wrongs being perpetrated. If re sort to arms is necessary it was de clared in the resolutions, Kansas will be with President Wilson "to the fin ish," nnd send her quota of soldiers to the front.

It makes it unlawful to obtain any money or thing of value by pre tending to be blind, deaf or to by suffering from other physical infirm ity. The bill makes such an act a misdemeanor. There will be no minimum wage bill Tiissed by the present legislature. Tho senate committee on labor killed the bill passed by the house last week, and so reported to the senate. House The bouse parsed on third reading the grain inspection bill of the com mittee on agriculture. It makes in Fpcrtlon optional and not compulsory A chief inspector nd three deputies are to be named. The inspection fees are to be fixed by the state grain grad ing commission. Unless a shipper marks his grain "not subject to in spection," It will be inspected. A pub lic elevator 13 defined as one in which the grain of different owners is not mixed. In the future T'nlted States senators In Kansas will be nominated at the primaries by a plurality of tho popu lar vote of the entire state, and not by a plurality of lcsrislatl-e districts. The houre passed the senate bill of Senator I.anibertson of Brown on the subject. The vote was C5 to- fill. The senate passed the bill last week. All it needs now is the signature of Gover nor Hodges to become a law. Senate Senator Joseph's bill requiring coun ty treasurers to send notices of unpaid taxes twice n year in the middle of January and July, passed Hie senate. This bill give.; the taxpayer a chance to avert tho embarrassment of meet- in'.; the warrants of the sheriff when he has forwtton to pay his taxes. The terriFiner wiil send out notices by mail and the person to whom tile no tice is sent has I!U days in which to make the payment. The senate passed the Mil to deter mine the titles to the islands and al iened islands in the channel of the Arkansas river, over which residents of the part of the State have leon somewhat wrought up for rome time The bill had pievlously passed the house and now goes to thr? governor for his signature, the house having co:i currcd in a minor amendment recom mended by the senate judiciary com mittee. eent. of tho land is under tho plough, four per cent, being in wheat. Less than five years ago the wheat crop was only seventy-one million bushels. It is a simple calculation to estimate that If four per cent, of the available cultivable area produces something over two hundred million bushels, what will forty-four per cent, produce? And then look at the Immigration that Is coming Into the country. In 1901 it was 49,149; 17,000 being from the United States. In 1906 it was 189,064, of which 57,000 were Americans, and in 1912 it was about 400,000, of which about 200,000 are Americans. In the three years prior to 1912. there were 358,859 persons who declared them selves for Canada, who brought Into Canada In cash, bank drafts, stock, Implements and effects over $350,000,- 000. Why have they gone to Canada? The American farmer Is a man of shrewd business instincts, and when be finds that he can sell his own farm at from $100 to $200 per acre and move Into Canada and homestead 160 acres for himself, arid similarly for all his sons who are adult and of age, upon lands as rich and fertile as those he had left, and producing, indeed, sev eral bushels to the acre in excess of anything he has ever known, it will take more than an ordinary effort to prevent him from making the change. He can also purchase good lands at from $12 to $25 per acre. And, then, too, there is the Ameri can capital- following the capital of brawn, muscle and sinew, following it eo a3 to keep In touch with the indus trious farmer with which he has had dealings for years back. This capital and the capital of farming experience Is no small matter in tho building up of a country. Will Western Canada's development continue? Why not? The total area of land reported ns avnllable for cul tivation Is estimated as 218,000,000 acres; only fifteen per cent, of this is under cultivation. Nothing is said of the great mineral nnd forest wealth, of which but little lias yet been touched. Advertisement. Straighten That Lame Back! Backache is one of Nature's warnings of kidney weakness. Kidney disease kills thousands every year. Safety is only certain if the early warnings are heeded while help is possible. Doan's Kidney Pills have helped many thousands to get rid of backache, strengthen weak kidneys and regulate bladder and urinary disorders. ' Don't neglect a bad back. If your back is lame in the morning, if it hurts to stoop or lift, if the dull aching keeps up all day, making work a burden and rest impossible suspect the kid neys. If the urine is off color and shows a sedi ment; if passages are irregular, too frequent, too scanty, or scalding, this is further proof. There may be dizzy spells, headaches, nervousness, dropsy swellings, rheumatic attacks, and a general tired-out, run-down condition. Use Doan's Kidney Rills, the remedy that is publicly recommended by 100,000 persons in many different lands. Doan's act quickly, con tain no harmful nor habit-forming drugs and are wholly harmless, though remarkably effective. Cured After Doctors Gave Up Hope H. R. Hatch, 2516 Cedar St., Everett, Wash., gays ! "1 doubt if any one ever suffered more than I did with kidney complaint My back was so bad I could hardly walk. The least jar or mis-step, caused twinges that fairly made me groan, I dreaded to stoop, for I knew what I had to euffer when I had to straighten up again. There was generally a frequent desire to urinate, but at other times the secretions were re tarded, dark In color, almost like blood and pained terrible in passing. The doctors said I had but a short time to live. As a last resort I began to use Doan's Kidney Pills and rapidly grew better, and at last was completely cured. I have remained in good health ever since." When your back hurts, when your kidneys trouble you, when you feci lire J, worn-out or depressed, don 7 simply ask for a kidney remedy ask distinctly for Doan'e Kidney Pillt, the same thai cured Mr. Hatch, and make sure the name DOAN'S is on the box.

Hereafter If the measurv passed by the senate is successful in the house, road overseers in Kansas will be elect ed instead of appointed. The bill by Senator Wilson of Washington county, provides for the abolishment of the old custom of appointing, overseers that are favorable to one section of the district or have favors to give out to the body that appointed him and to bis own property and the property of his neighbors. The Wilson bill pro vides for the election of the road over seer in each district to hold office for two years. State banks are subject to the pro visions of the corporation tax law as passed by tho senate. Ail corporations In Kansas, including the 810 state banks in the state, will be taxed $23 to f2,.00 annually, depending upon the amount of their capiliil stock. The house, when It passed the bill the oth- er day, did not Include state banks under Us provisions, but the senate put them in. MISANTHROPE.
