From the Newark Star. It you didn't Bee "Halleys you haven't seen THE comet From the Augusta Herald. , The comet is visible at last, some reliable people reporting that ' they have seen it without the aid of a glass. From the Harrishurg Telegraph. The comet's schedule will soon be of H character to permit of its being used aa an excuse for staying up late. From the Memphis News-Scimitar. That comet brings only disaster along with it. A Pennsylvania family were out looking at it the other night when a thief invaded their back yard ' and atole all of their chickens. From the Duluth News-Tribune. Watch for the comet. Perhaps you will get your first opportunity in years of ecelng a rising sun. . ANXIOUS CITIES. From the Milwaukee Sentinel. It you weren't counted let the cen aua man know about it. That little ' city over in Michigan has simply got to be aet back one step. From the Topeka State Journal. It Is the duty of every person who may have been missed by the census enumerators to make known that tact to tha supervisors ot the census in To Farmers Of Wayne County The whole question of this franchise which Mr. Ashe desires is simply this: Mr. Ashe declares that he wants to furnish electricity to the farmers and the smaller towns in Wayne county. .The franchises which he has obtained and the one reconsidered by the County Commissioners granted him all the possible rights for an indefinite period. In return for these rights which are extremely valuable and will be Increasingly so, Mr. Ashe is not willing to guarantee anything to the consumers or' the people of this county In the future. The people in - the towns have another chance at this because they must grant him a franchise In each case which can last twenty-five years. Although there is some little question whether these franchises in the small towns ought to be for that long the people of the small towns will be able to protect themseives if they wilL The farmer will never have another chance" to protect himself. And boiled down to the fact It is simply a struggle to have Mr. Ashe put into writing the safeguards and guarantees which he promises In the course of an . ordinary conversation. The farmer is a good business man and knows that if he wants any thing in a contract it should be there In black and white. In the franchise, that Mr. Ashe wants the people to give him there is absolutely no guarantee on his part that he will furnish light or power to the farmer, nor Is there any mention of a maximum rate.. If we are not mistaken there are now operating In this county public service corporations like the Bell telephone that will not bother with the country consumer. They do not have to there is no way to make them. The time is coming when a great deal of the work on the farm can be done" by electricity. The time to begin to make provision for the future is now and not when it is all over. In view of the attempt made to convince the farmer that this paper is unfriendly to the farmers and does not want them to enjoy the benefits ot electricity or any modern convenience it seems only necessary to say that that is exactly what we do want. Ai franchise Is a contract. It is a mighty poor contract in which all the rights are on one side.' . If Mr. Ashe would guarantee his words and motives in writing that would be quite all that anyone could ask. The Host If such Is the case then the Republican Insurgents have been reckoning largely without their host If they continue to insurge as against the strug gling Taft administration they will not have Roosevelt's help. Mr. Roose velt, for example, knows of the tariff question which he dared not touch himself. He is likely to be easily persuaded that the late revision was the best that could be achieved within the party at the time. Springfield Repub lican. . There is a lot of loose talk about what Theodore Roosevelt is going to do when be comes back to this country from his hunting trip. All the standpat papers in the country and those of conservative tendencies who either looked with suspicion on Roosevelt when he was President or at tacked him bitterly are now out with their dope sheets figuring just how be Is going to come to their rescue., We are told that the man who fought predatory wealth and special pri vilege, which necessitated his struggle with Aldrlch and Cannon is going to fight on the other side and desert the people nay, more than that is coming home to persuade the people that there is nothing in their belief that the progressive legislation that he stood tor Is right. 'In other words we are to believe that Mr. Roosevelt derives his poVer not from the expression of the wishes of the people, but because he can whip them into line like a political boss. We do not believe that the American people have been mistaken , in Roosevelt any more than they have been mistaken in their fight against predatory wealth and special privilege if they have been mistaken they will be heartbroken In disappointment. But. will they? They believe in Theodore Roosevelt because they think , that he places principle above personal friendship even; as they do. ,' The Insurgents did not vote against the Payne-Aldrich bill because of Roosevelt the man, but because of the principles which they had in common with him. The host have the American people reckoned him aright in their be lief In his integrity we think so. A llen Jay With Allen Jay passes one of the last of the old Friends a type inti mately connected with the history of this community and one whose ideas have Impressed themselves on modern society.' Of this type Allen Jay was recognized internationally as a leader. His reminiscences which were published In the American Friend show him to have had that rare grace and tact springing from real sympathy which was able to accomplish all all his labors for the Society of Friends. It is probably true that there is scarcely a household of that society which has not been bound to him by some personal tie. ; i .';:vi;;:V;r'Vf:V .'''.."." By far the most remarkable trait of his character and one which was predominant was that steady faith and devotion to what he believed his spiritual calling which led him to labor with and surmount difficulties which would have crushed an ordinary man. This was the divine spark which made him a true lineal descendant of the men who instituted the Society of Friends, commonly called Quakers qf whom the first was George Fox. pajfBaassBaMSaVMKBBBBafayBKBaaMBpgaaBBMa Knows No Party The announcement that Aldrlch has secured enough votes from Demo cratic sources to put through the desires of the railroads in the railroad legislation before Congress after a trip to New York shows several things. The first: Money knows no party. The second: This country Is already in the hands of an oligarchy of greed. The third: The Insurgents are the only free and untrammeled force In American politics. The fourth: If Indiana depends on a man nominated and elected by the most corrupt force in Indiana already accused of corruption of eight mem hers of the state legislature to put its candidate in the United States Senate we may expect an alliance of the Interests just as we saw it on the tariff and are about to see on the railroad bill. . v Greed knows no party. How To Make Richmond Beautifu, : The first principle in beauty Is cleanliness. To make Richmond beautiful we must keep it clean. It we plant flowers we. must keep the weeds out from among them or they will not be beautiful. If we intend keeping our city clean only during the first week in May, there is not much use In . cleaning then. We should endeavor to keep It clean every week, yes, every day of the year. But it seems almost impossible to keep paper and other litter off our sidewalks now as there Is no place to put them, no kind of a receptacle for waste paper from one end of Main street to the other, or any other street as far aa I know. Boxes or baskets on every oth- ? er corner would not be beautiful in themselves, but they would cer tainly make it easier to keep rubbish oft our sidewalks. Very often one has a bit of paper or something that he does not want to carry home, and as there Is no place to put it but on the sidewalk, it is very easy to drop it there. It would not be much harder to carry these to the corner and drop them Into a waste basket. In some cities they have baskets painted green, wired to a tele graph pole on every corner. Why can't Richmond have them too? As cleanliness is almost -the first principle in The City Beautiful" let us all endeavor in. every possible way to assist in keeping Rich mond clean.Madge Smith, English, 10A. AD HYDE TAKES ST Both Accused and Wife Testi fy in the Swope Murder Case Yesterday, 0IS0N CHARGES DENIED TWINKLES BY PHILANDER JOHNSON. Not in Placid Mood. .. "That man told me he would marry and settle down." "Didn't he?" "Well, he married, but he didn't settle down. He's been up in the air ever since." Kansas City, Mo., May 10. Both Dr. Hyde and his wife took the witness stand in the Swope murder trial yes terday in an effort to save the accus ed physician's life. None was spared in the testimony. Relatives, former friends and nurses who had testified for the state against Dr. Hyde were accused of falsehood and trickery. Dr. Hyde offered no excuses for his actions in treating the 6ick at . the Swope home. Neither did he admit that he might have erred. Firmly he said his course was right in the cases of James Moss Munton, Colonel Thom as H, Swope and Chrisman , Swope. He maintained that the cause of death he gave when the men died he still believes to be correct. He denied, tes timony offered by various witnesses: Never, said the physician, did he try to poison any one either with typhoid germs or drugs. Checking her tears as best she could Mrs. Hyde preceded her husband on the stand. She flatly contradicted testimony given , by her s mother, her brother and several sisters. Mrs. Swope heard the testimony of both witnesses. She watched Mrs. A Diplomat. "You never have an argument with your wife?" "Never," replied Mr. Meekton. .."How do yoi. avoid it?" "I start right in by admitting that I am wholly in the wrong." Seventh Street Park. Seventh street park would be one of the prettiest spots in Richmond, If It were well taken care of. The grass is in good con dition and Is level, hut the space between the sidewalk and curbing needs sodding. Tere are several dead trees which need cutting down and it would Improve the appearance ot - the park If trees were planted Instead ot so many low bushes, and what bushes are left should be trimmed. The thing needed most is flower beds, as it has none and flower beds always add beauty to a public place. A hedge should be placed along the alley to obstruct the view. The sight of the alley detracts greatly from the beauty of the park. One cannot help seeing it from any place In the park. The park has good gravel walks and people should use them, but they evidently don't, for there are paths on both sides ot every walk. Along one of the walks is a curbing of bricks which keeps the water from washing along the side of it. The rest of the walks should be Im proved in the same manner. The benches need painting and If the box on the fountain remains there much longer, it should be paint ed also, it stands high and can be seen from quite a distance. The electric light posts are in bad condition and should be painted. ,It these Improvements were made, Seventh street park would be much more beautiful. -With it so, It would encourage the people around to keep their own property in better condition, so as not to mar the effect of the park.

Many people wash their scalps Satur day night or Sunday to try to keep the dandruff down for the week, but on Monday night the scalp has begun to itch, and Tuesday morning will find a good supply of dandruff when the hair is brushed. There is but one real Hyde closely, but when Dr. Hyde took i scientific way of curing dandruff; and the stand she lowered her eyes and did not gaze full into his face at any time The amalgamation of formaldyhyde and ammonia in a human body does not form hydrocyanic acid, say scien tists who have been experimenting in behalf of the state to determine an important point at issue in the Hyde murder trial. These scientists, who have been working at the University of Kansas laboratory, made this re port to Prosecutor Vigil Conkling today. that is to kill the germ that causes it, and falling hair, and finally baldness. There is only one preparation that will destroy the germ, and that is Newbro's Herpicide.

From the Boston Globe.- Of course, if it is more important to teach the republican insurgents their place than it is to pass important railroad legislation, let's not have Mr. Taft's bill. Perhaps it wasn't wise legislation anyway, but the adminis tration which is mixing up the matter of expediency in passing laws with political punishment of recalcitrant supporters is at least going to have more than a little explaining to do From the Cleveland Plain Dealer. Doesn't seem to bother the Presi dent a bit that his chief measure is being torn to pieces to make a tail for the insurgent kite. He just keeps right on his tour of eulogy. From the New York Evening Telegram That there's nothing new under the sun is evidenced by the Senate today wrestling with the long and short haul problem, something that was threshed out in the days of Commodore Vander bilt. . From the Albany Journal. , It seems that the railroad bill pend ing in the Congress will ultimately consist mostly of amendments! From the Boston Traveler.
