One has to live one year in the state and three months in county ac cording to the new law. Evident ly the lawyers who depend on the divorce business did not have enough voice to prevent the pass age of the bill. This is a more in the right direction. Iowa has passed a law making desertion on the part of the husband a felony; one representative introduced an amendment to the bill providing the same punishment for desert ing wives but it was voted down. They also passed- a law prohibit ing divorced persons from marry ing within a year after the di vorce was granted. There is not a shadow of a doubt but that the fifty-ninth session of congress, just closed has earned the title of a business congress. It has pass ed measures directed toward the betterment of the conditions of the people in general in respect to our food supply and also as to safety of travel. It has taken a long stride in advance.toward a betterment of commercial trade by undertaking the canal project and by exercising a supervision over the methods of common carriers. While the attitude to ward the latter may seem to some to be beliggerent, it is but a firm intention to see to it, that the country gets all it is entitled to and is not to be sacrificed for the benefit of corporations. In view of the general prosper ity of the country the salaries of many government officials have been increased, notably the em ployes of the postal service, whose duties are also increased by the growth of the country. Considering the session as a whole, one thing that, stands out prominently and that is the har mony and co-operation that pre vailed between the congress and the president. Many things done by the congress were done at the instigation and request of the president but it was almost en tirely without that antagonism that is so destructive to the de sired ends and aims of legislators and the particular object of a bill. That the ship-subsidy bill was de feated at the eleventh hour is proof of how easy it is to talk a measure to death. The amount of appropriations mounted well up toward a billion of dollars, and this may be a cause of concern to not a few but if the normal increase of revenues ob taines this year it is not likely the treasury will show any defic it at the end of the fiscal year. If it does, it will only serve to make the next congress, which is the last preceeding the next pres idental election, more economical; which at that time will cause to be given to it the greater reward.

But the roads operating in Nebraska have put the fan on excursion and convention rates in that state saying that two cents shall be the minimum as well as maximum. Collier's came out recently say ing that Pennsylvania railroad was the only one whose system of operation prevented such acci dents as have befallen other roads; we wonder what they will say since the wrecking of the Chicago-New York special. The adoption of Esperants, the proposed International language, would no doubt be a harder prob lem for us than Roosevelt's simp lified spelling list. English is good enough: the only trouble being we do not have a good command of in How much better it would be if we conld have themudholes on our business street bridged over with good plank sidewalks, and two or three crosswalks laid down—we could doit if our town was incorporated, The Governor of North Dakota is "doing things" to the saloon business of the western part of that state and judging from the effect so far he intends to create a considerable drouth in that line. An "anti-tipping" bill has passed the House in the Iowa Legislature and is confidently ex pected to pass the Senate—here's success to it When it comes to an argument, Judge Gray, of Indiana, is able to defend his decision against an Eddyite with facts. Surely March is making a rec ord this year that will be hard to beat. Home Circle Department. Concluded from first page. ate descendants. All the appli ances which have been invented — notably during the past gener ation—to give hightened comfort to the home, and to make labor easier have added to this com plexity of living, and most ma terially. to its cost. How mater ially, one would hardly beleive until he had studied the matter for himself and discovered be yond a question that today a man cannot support a wife and bring up one child, living in a comfort ing and not at all lavish manner, upon what his ancester would have considered sufficient to rear a large family. He cannot do it on what it costs his ancestor of only two generations ago. As men and women are educated and taught to think for themselves, they will no longer follow blindly the lead of the so-called "fashion able" bell-wethers, but will re cognize the charm of independent modes of thought and life, and will permit themselves to live ac cording to their own ideas and ways. They will see the folly of attempting to imitate the methods of the millionaire on the income of the average business or pro fessional man, but will live their own lives, happy in doing the things which they really care to do, instead of the things which they do just because somebody else does them.

To the Secre tary of the Interior: My order of February 12, 1907, relating to the issuance of evi dence of title under the public land laws, is hereby canceled, for the reason that Congress did not appropriate an amount sufficient to enable the Commissioners of the General Land Office to prop erly carry out the purpose of that order, which were to have such examination made of all appli cations for patent as would facil itate the issuance of title to bona fide settlers and home-makers, would reduce illegal entries to a minimum,* and bring the work of the Land Office up to date. With the amount actually appropriated it is not possible to carry out the order, or to provide with certain ty for the detection of fraud without causing unreasonable hardship to bona fide settlers and home-makers. In order to accomplish as much as can be accomplished with our present means in preventing il legal acquisition of public lands the Commissioner of the General Land Office will detail all his available field and office force in such manner, by concentration or otherwise, as will as effectively as is possible with the actual ap propriation restrict fraud, enforce the existing laws, and promote the bona fide settlement of public lands by home-makers.
