Still, it Is bound to be a long time before the study of aeronautics, which a number of the colleges have adopted, is going to crowd out foot-ball in the business of making half-tone heroes. From the Pittsburg Dispatch. The foot ball cranks seem willing to reform the game in every respect but its death list. From the New Orleans Times-Democrat Worried mothers of foot ball star probably feel that the ' Thanksgiving proclamations should enumerate among the reasons for giving thanks, the fact that the day marks the close of the foot ball season. From the Scranton Tribune. Mothers who have sons old enough to play foot ball do not exhibit much enthusiasm for the game. Fromthe Detroit News. Still, no one has dubbed foot ball "game slaughter.' From the St. Ixiuis Globe-Democrat. College faculties might have the backbone to stop foot ball before sonio one of their students is killed instead of afterward. THE WIRE MERGER. From the Columbus. Ohio, State Jour nal. In spite of the great marger achieve ment of the Bell Telephone Company, however, the line probably will still bo busy at times when you need it worst, the Kansas City Times. T"Vn Wvattrn TTnlnn Tplpprnnh com pany and the Bell Telephone company have merged into a billion dollar cor poration. It will still be -possible, however, to use the deaf-and-dumb al phabet without paying tribute to the trust. From the Chicago News. Notwithstanding the absorption nf the telegraph lines by the telephone company it will not be necessary to be gin your telegrams with "Hello'." From the Pittsburg Gazette-Times. Perhaps the telephone and telegraph combiners are simply endeavoring o encourage the infant industry of trust busting. From the Syracuse Post-Standard. Now we can send all our telegrams by telephone without injury to the widows and orphans who subsist upon Western Union stock. From the Columbia State. The Bell people appear to have been doing some quiet wire pulling. TWINKLES (By Philander Johnson) Getting a Move on Himself. "I got so that I didn't pay any at tention to my old-fashioned alarm clock," said Mr. Urlyrise. "But I'm out of bed and wide awake at 6 o'clock every morning now." "How did you manage it?" "I got one that honks like an auto mobile horn." Suspicions. Uncle Groucher sits around. Alius lookln' cheerless. His remarks, they ain't profound. Nor especial fearless. Never seems to have no schemes. Prospects nor ambitions; He jes' shets his eyes an' dreams, Havin his suspicions.

"Yes,' answered the debonnair debtor. "But ho didn't mean most of It. He has just employed a new sten- THE NEXT LEGISLATURE The announcement of Mr. Kirkman that he ia not to be a candidate for re-election to the state senate, brings to mind the fact that it is not a great while until the Republican nominating primary. Although the date for the primary has not been eet, it will probably take place in January or February. Of all the men to be nominated by Republicans, no office will have so much opportunity connected with them as those of state legislators. At no time in late years have there been quite so important possibilities. For we regard the next legislature as more or less of a critical period in the state's attitude regarding municipal and national affairs. There have probably been more spectacular occasions, and the last session was not without its exciting moments, but in the actual results, affecting the years to come, which are dependent, the next legislature will have two things for its consideration which are great Issues. Those two things are the re-election of Senator Beveridge and the con sideration of an enabling act to allow Indiana cities, at their option, to embrace the commission form of government in its highest and best devel opment, called the Des Moines Plan. The people of Wayne county, unless we have seriously misjudged their attitude, will regard the candidacy with favor of men who are of strong enough caliber to declare for these two things. And for the reason that the people of Wayne county are alive to the two greatest dangers of this day and generation, which are beginning to threaten the very existence of the republic. Those two things may be lumped into one and called the Danger of Cor poration Aggrandizement. The corporation problem is the one which is greatest in the national and municipal life. In the nation it is the gigantic accumulations of wealth which enter into everything, whether it be the tariff, anti-trust legisla tion or the public lands of the west. The public service corporation in the city, plays the same role whether it be franchises, cost of public utilities, public corruption or street paving. Not to indulge in theories, but in definite ways of combating this dan ger of corporations, Wayne county is, therefore, interested in the re-election of Beveridge, who has proved his worth in fighting the very dangers of our national life that we have just mentioned. And in municipal affairs, the Palladium believes that the people realize there is no better way of giving the people of the cities in Indiana relief from the wrongs they have suffered in the past from corporations, and other troubles, than by giving the people the power themselves as In the Des Moines Plan. In our opinion, the men sent to the legislature should be viewed at the primary with this idea in mind. The men should be judged with a view to their strength in withstanding the great pressure which will be brought to bear to defeat these things which are to the people's interest, and tho ability to fight for these things, and to fight hard. In view of the fact that no candidate has so far announced himself for the legislature, subject to the Republican nomination, these things are said only with a view to bringing to mind what should be considered before pledging any candidate support. The candidates who are honest in their convictions about these matters and who frankly tell the public what they think of them, will receive consideration from the Republican voters of greater value to them than a discussion of personal likes and dislikes. The people of Wayne county are intelligent on the real issues and are awake to their own interests and they are apt to assert themselves. ographer. When he dictated that let ter he was showing off."

"I suppose you talked a lot of non sense to your wife before you were married." "Yes," answered Mr. Meekton. Be fore we were married she thought my nonsense sensible. Now when I try to talk sense she thinks it nonsense." A Tragedy of the Time. "Bliggins says he has lost his hair through worry. What's he worying about?" "His wife's coiffure bills.

With the progress of science come3 one remarkable treatment for kidney diseases. It has been so thoroughly tested and its results have proven so revolutionary that a well known firm in Michigan has undertaken its distri bution into every part of the country. Those who suffer from kidney trou ble and the diseases resulting from it will be pleased to know that every package of this treatment is thorough ly guaranteed. This should assure at last a postive cure to every sufferer. Every man and woman should know that backache is usually a well defined symptom of advancing kidney disease which may end fatally unless treated in time: that rheumatism and bladder trouble are caused from nothing more nor less than kidneys that do not filter the poison from the blood; that dropsy, Bright's disease, diabetes and bladder stones are caused by bad kidneys. Once they are made to work properly these diseases should quickly disap pear. This is done by the new treatment, Dr. Kerby's Kidney Pills. We urge everyone who has pain in the small of the back, profuse or scan ty urination, pains in the bladder, cloudy or foul urine, not to fail to get a package today of Dr. Derby's Kidnev Pills, and drop all other kidney treat ments. Senator Stevenson of Washington, writes from Olympia: "There is no question about the efficacy of Dr. Der by's Pure Kidney Pills in curing kid ney and bladder trouble. I know whereof I speak." Dr. Derby's Kidney Pills are now sold at all drug stores GO pills 10 days'- treatment 25 cents. If you would like to try them first, ask your druggist for a free sample package. Then buy a package; you will not re gret it. PUBLIC INTERESTED (American News Service) Washington, Nov. 24 That tho prob lem of irrigation is one that is not only of interest to the settlers in the aril regions of the West, but is being in vestigated by the general public is in dicated in a request made by Census Director Durand on Arthur Hooker, secretary of the National Irrigation congress, of Spokane, for the average and yield of the various crops that are under irrigation, and the total irrigat ed area in the United States. Mr. Durand says that there is in creasing public demand for statistics and other information relative to water power, and that the bureau ex pects to develop data along this line in connection with its census of man ufactures. Pennsylvania leads the world in buckwheat flour. Walter's heads the list. One trial convinces. At your grocer's. FIRES IN VIRGINIA (American News Service) Richmond, Va.. Nov. 2.5. Destruct ive forest fires have been raging all around Richmond and thousands of feet of fences and many outhouses have been destroyed. Last night about a thousand cords of wood caught fire and the western part of the city was brilliantly lighted. The wood wa3 owned by Smith and Woodall. In the path of the flames were many frame dwellings and there was much fear that they would be destroyed. A rain set in yesterday morning early and this stopped the fire. A The members of the different Friends meetings of the city will join in a Thanksgiving service at East Main Street Friends church at 10 o'clock. Addresses will be made by Levi Pennington, Thurman Kenwor thy and others. Thanksgiving services will also be held at the First Presbyterian church from 10 to 11 o'clock in the morning. The choir quartet will furnish the mu sic. A cordial invitation is extended to the public to attend these services. In Jewish houses of worship persons who are in mourning arise at a certain time during the service and repeat the Kaddish. According to the Hebrew Standard, there are tradespeople for whom the mourners prayer is no bar to business. In a recent issue that paper says: "The trustees of Temple Israel of Harlem, should suppress th? individual who on Sabbath mornings distributes pamphlets to those saying Kaddish. advertising the wares of a monument dealer."

IS MEETING DM BAKING POUDER Absolutely Puro Makes the finest, most deli cious biscuit, cake and pastry; conveys to food the most healthful of fruit properties Heart to Heart Talks. By EDWIN A. NYE. Copy.ight, 1908, by Edwin A. Nye GOD AND MOTHERS. It Is a beautiful sayiug that "God could not be everywhere, so he made mothers." The influence and power of a mother are only less than the influence and power of God. Napoleon recognized that fact when on being asked what was the greatest need of France he replied. "Mothers!" It is a trite observation that great men come of great mothers. It is as true that those nations are great whose mothers are great. Note the Jewish people. Where will you find greater sanctity of home life, purer domestic love, than In the home of the Jew? It has been so since the call of Abraham. Chastity and devotion have ever adorned the Jewish mother. And that is why the race has produced more great men in proportion to its members than any other. And the Germans When Tacitus found and wrote about them twenty centuries ago the Teuton who lived in bis native forest was the husband of one wife, and that wife was then, as today, industrious, do mestic, virtuous. In consequence no people have ever achieved greatness in so many ways as the 6turdy Germans. And England Statesmen may stand up In parlia ment to champion a budget that will build more ships to guard her shores and save her possessions, but the real bulwark of the empire is the bulwark of English homes and mothers. If the Anglo-Saxon dominates the world today it is because of the intel ligence and purity of Anglo-Saxon mothers. If his "strength is as the strength of ten because his heart is pure," it is because of his mother's purity. And America The sons of the republic march in the forefront of the world as the ar biters of righteousness and the pro claimers of peace because of their mothers behind them. Ah, mothers! Yours is power greater than that of queens on a throne. Your great prov ince, like that of God himself, is the mothering of souls. You alone can put into living souls the divine yeast of the world's future goodness and great ness. Do not resign your scepter of moth erhood to some mere hireling of a day. Let us say it reverently: We know not how it is In other worlds, but In this one God himself cannot get along without mothers. WILL PROTECT KIDS (American News Service) Philadelphia, Nov. 24. Superintend ent Martin Brumbaugh, of the public schools, has appointed a committee of principals to recommend steps for suppressing the attendance of school children at moving picture shows dur ing school hours. The chairman of the committee. Edwin Y. Montayne. has written to other large cities asking To what extent is this practice an evil in your city V What laws or ordinaces are in existence, or should be passed, regulating the attendance of children at these shows? Sluggish Blood causes nine-tenths of all sickness.

TORE HIS SKIN OFF III SHREDS Itching was Intense Humor Spread from Hands to Body Work Inter rupted and Sleep Often Impossible Disease Resisted Treatment BUT CUTICURA CURED HIM IN THREE WEEKS "My trouble commenced about two years ago and consisted, at first, of an eruption or small, pustules on my hands. These spread later to other parts of my body, and the itching at times was intense, so much so that I liter ally tore the skin oft in shred in seeking reiier. 1 he awrul itching interfered with my work con siderably, and also kept me awake nights.
