Word was received in Wilton last
Saturday of the death of Mrs. eGorge
Kelsey at Anoka, Minnesota, of old
age. Mrs. Kelsey was the mother of
Mrs. W. P. Macomber and Mrs. M.
W. Woodworth of this place, and
these ladies were at her bedside and
ministered to her last hours.: The
funeral occurred at her late home
and was attended by a vast con
course of mourning friends, for Mrs.
Kelsey was one of the early settlers
of Anoka, and was held in the high
est esteem by all who knew her.

Seven Yeurs of Roosevelt.
"In seven years we shall know
whether Tjeodot Roosevelt has
done things for us or has done things
to us," writes Liidsey Denison in
the March Circle magazine. "(It is
possible he has done both.) But at
any rate, the final ledger balances
will be in positive form.
"We shall have, for instance, the
Panama canal.
"It may read that we ought to
aave a sea level canal instead of a
lock canal it may read that the
canal cost half a billion dollars
when it ought to have cost only a
third as much.
"The point is that there will be a
"in the relation of the government
and great corporations we shall have
something which may read: Presi
dent Roosevelt perverted the spirit
of the constitution to meet his own
prejudices it may read that he fed
the clamor of the people for a blood
or money sacrifice by forcing the op
eration of a law which he himself
has admitted to be sometimes equit
able—the Sherman law it may read
that many industrious and honest
men in banks, stores, factories and
ditches suffered want and saw their
wives and children hunger and dieof
when possibly (but not probably)
the meals of national life for which
he was striving might have 'been
brought about automatically and
gently with the passing of the years
of uimself and his successors—just
as President McKinley intended to
eliminate the spoilsmen in the gov
ernment departments quietly and
without disturbing the nation by self
"The point is that it has been prov
en that there is not a corporation
in the United States which has any
certainty" that it can violate the law
of the United States with impunity
that there is always hanging over
such a corporation the threat that a
president may be elected who will so
execute the real will of the nation
that nothing can stand between them
and a calling to account.
"In the history of Mr. Roosevelt's
personal attitude his office (after all
the jokesmiths have finlshel talking
about his homilies on everything
from the married relation to the life
of the farmer, and from high finance
to birds' eggs) it may he written that
he has overborne his wisest advisers
and has leaned too much on reflex
commendation of his every thought,
which must come to a strong man
from a clique of self-selected per
sonal admirers.
"The point is that we have had
a working and a human president
anl not a mechanic who has watched
and oilel a machine for the mere
honor of holding the office."
What Every Country Editor Knows.
During the eight years I worked in
a country newspaper office I had am
ple time to study and absorb the
daily incidents of the life and work
of a country editor. I learned for
a certainty that a man to qualitfy
for such a position must be a ma
chinist, a politician, a financier, a
diplomat and a printer, besides hav
ing a smattering of all professions.
He must be a versatile, forgiving,
brave, prolific, calm, temperate in
all things, and withal he must have
excellent bodily health,abundant phy
sical strength and a head filled with
concrete knowledge of his village,
the country, the commonwealth, and
all things of national and interna
tional moment and importance, from
the best methods of treating the pip
in light rahmas to the latest rev
olutionary disturbances in the Bal
kans.—Don Cameron Shafer in The
Bohemian Magazine for March.
When the President Becomes an
Mr. Roosevelt is to leave us for
awhile, and certainly the manner of
his going is appropriate. He de
parts from the United States, this
scene of his years of volcanic of
ficial and personal activities, and
goes to another land to sound his
dominant note. Shots will sound
and blood will flow, and his knife
will find the living hilt. The scalps
and skins of the kings of the jungle
will dry upon his tent pegs. He will
work and sweat and. kill and be hap
And then he will return, satisfied
with the slaughter, fingering his
crowded note books, posing amid his
trophies. It will be quiet here, but
he will not let It remain so. I ven
ture the prediction that It will not
be long after he gets back before he
strikes the war post in the Outlook
office and begins to pound the war
drum and to chant. And there will
be many to hear, and, if he writes
over his signature in the Outlook
of the things that he has Indi
cated to his friends he will, there
will also be many to squirm and to
suffer. For Theodore Roosevelt, aside
from what other plans he may have
for the future, intends to be In pri

Presdent Taft to guide the destenies
the Important departmnt of Com

long to St. Louis and has for many
years been identified with the growth
of that city, he was born in Colorado
