J. !7 I the past two years he has succeeded la building up a strong newspaper which has wielded a wide influence, but the ' weight of seventy odd yeara makes rest . and retirement necessary. The new paper will be conducted along reform lines and promises to be a strong and vigorous one. Rothweiler's telegraph bill provides for a maximum rate of 20 cents for a day message of ten words from any point in the State to any other in the State. The night rate is fixed at 10 cents. Two cents per word may be charged in addi tion for any messages of more than ten words and 1 cent for night messages. Mr. Jack Stewart, one of the newspaper veterans of northwest Kansas, Is dead. He published Stewart's Bazoo at Smith Center for a dozen or more years and of late yers it was one of three Demo cratic papers in the Sixth district Stew art had all kinds of friends who knew him as a faithful, good-natured, uncom plaining man. Whoop Tomlinson is a busy man. His twice-a-week daily annihilates Leedy for calling a special session, whoops it up for George Crane for State printer, in dorses Bailey Waggener and A. A. Hurd in their anti-railroad legislation talk, and finds fault because the election clerks in the Twentieth Kansas credited Ed Little's vote to the wrong precinct Stanley has ninety-four applications for "anything."

He has pretty nearly as large a proportion of applicants for other places. Doctors say consumption can't be cured. But when they see it cured right under their face and eyes by Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery, they admit that there's something wrong about their arguments and something wonderful about the "Discovery." It isn't miracu lous. It won't cure every case; but it cures a surprisingly large percentage of cases; even when the patient Is pretty far gone with a bad cough, and bleed ing from the lungs, and reduced almost to a shadow. Consumption Is a blood disease. The lungs want a fresh supply of pure, rich blood and plenty of it; that is what the "Golden Medical Discovery" gives them. It is a blood-maker.. It gives the blood-making functions power to produce a large quantity of nourishing red corpuscles which make healthy, life giving blood. This stops the wasting; drives out the impurities; heals the ul ceration and begins a rapid building-up process, of solid, substantial and vital energy.' General News. About half the population of Puerto Rico is classed as white. Texas has a permanent school fund of $22,000,000 and 17,000,000 acres of land. Mayor Jones, of Toledo, is opposed to the granting of franchises by the mu nicipality under any circumstances. The remains of Gen. Sam Houston are burled at Huntsville, Texas, the grave being marked only by a plain marble slab. Mayor Harrison, of Chicago, holds that spanking boys in the city reformatory is better than locking them In dungeons, and he will veto the anti-flogging ordi nance. ' The Michigan Supreme court has de clared the oleomargarine law passed In that State to be void. A defect in the passage of the bill is given as the ground for the opinion. The protectionists fear that expansion will eventually bring free trade, the very thing that they don't want, and they are preparing monster petitions to the Sen ate to Influence it to non-concur in the -Spanish treaty.

Kansas la a corn orchard parked with grasses. Nowhere else do corn and grass grow In greater opulence. In such a region, with such an environment, the hpg and his colleague, the beef steer, are twin alchemists who transmute these bulkier products into gold and silver, wherewith to buy better homes, added lands, lux ury, and leisure. In Kansas the steer and hog find their El Dorado the favored one and are debt-payers, mortgage-removers, and promoters of progress. Compliments of the State Board of Agriculture.

Few, Indeed, realize the prodigious growth that socialism has made In the United States during the last five yoars. I doubt even whether the socialists them selves know how deep their damnable doctrine has rooted. I doubt whether either of the two great political parties In this country realizes the monstrous proportions which this child of the devil has attained to. It ha3 gained a foot hold In every county of every State, and worse still, It ha3 Invaded every govern ment In this world. It has entered the church and taken the laborer from the pew, for It Is a well-known fact that tho rank and file of this fad Is made up from the laboring classes and of the Illiterate. Its hatred for that which makes good, and Its love for the principles that lead to anarchy unless Immediately checked will overturn society and bring about a reign of terrorism and destruction In place of good government We need no longer go to Europe to study socialism, for its vile and dangerous doctrine has Invaded every hamlet In our land, and it3 anarchistic publications like Arena, Appeal to Reason, New Time, and a hoot of other yellow Journals may be found in almost every home of the laboring classes. The time has come when gov ernment should Join hands with the church to suppress yellow Journalism.
