It was a sin Center of Distribution-Indiana Modern business is built on small economies. The easiest way to distribute is to be as close to all points you wish to reach as possible. The center of a circle is the nearest point to all the points in the circumference. With a few trite sentences like that to start with where does It lead? The Spokane Herald says: "Railroads will build up Spokane In much the same way as they havrs built up Indianapolis only much more quickly. Spokane Is so situated that when It becomes the railroad center that Indianapolis is, it will be much larger than that city is at present." - But the Spokane Herald neglects a mighty important point There is a big kernel in the walnut. Indianapolis grew because of the railroads The railroads had to come there. But Spokane is built on another principle (according to the Herald) for after the railroads come "Spokane is so situated," etc. Spokane will doubtless grow andmay she wax fat off the railroads when they come we have no quarrel with her. If we had quarrels with cities we should by all the rules perforce scowl at Indianapolis. But we do not feel that way for Indianapolis has grown because it was in Indiana in the center which brings us to the point. The State of Indiana is the distribution center of the United States. Indianapolis and Indiana: The two are the same as far as this point is concerned, have grown and will continue to grow for the same reason as Chicago distribution position. Maybe you would like to know what the Spokane Herald says: Spokane Herald: It has always been conceded that coast cit ies or cities on big rivers have an advantage over the strictly in land city like Spokane or Indianapolis. But it is shown how this disadvantage may be overcome with the help of railroads, in the example of Indianapolis.'which is con sidered the greatest railroad center east of Chicago. Built upon a swamp in the middle of the state during the early part of the nineteenth century, it has grown from a settle ment of two or three huts Into the present city of more than 230, 000 inhabitants, when it was expected that it would not attain a size other than that of a country town, because it was not upon some navigable river. The most rapid strides which this city has taken In thejast five or six years. Its present size and reputation as a good business town are accredited in the greatest part to the railroads. A branch of al most every transcontinental line except the Great Northern and Northern Pacific, and branches of most of the Eastern and South ern roads enter Indianapolis. Many Interurban lines also enter the city and have given Indianapolis the name of one of the largest Interurban centers in the world. In the last four years railroad activity has been very pro- nounced In Indianapolis, and In that time the city has branched wonderfully. The business district has been enlarged five or six blocks In two directions. Between twenty and thirty modern of fice buildings have been erected and many new residences built. Spokane Is situated in much the same way as Indianapolis. It is surrounded by a rich farming country like the Hoosier cap ital and has many similar and several greater advantages. Like In dianapolis it is close to no waterway. Railroads will build up Spokane in much the same way as they have Indianapolis only much more quickly. Spokane is so situated that when It becomes the railroad center that Indianapolis is it will be much larger than that city is at present. Having pointed out just what the growth of Indianapolis means and having seen that it is because the state of Indiana is the focal point of trade what then? j Is it for nothing more than the predilection of soul that the thresh ing machinery and seeding industries the largest of their kind are here In Richmond? Is it for nothing that the hardware and fence distributors are growing daily and are in many cases already the largest of their kind? This Is Indiana. - Let each city tell Its full story and when you have finished let the city , architects cry their wares as they will-they can not get past the axiom of the circle and the center. There is a western capital which prides itself that It stands alone in the state with few cities surrounding It and sends out advertising litera ture explaining how therefore that town must eventually prosper better than any city in the country. In that literature It derides Indianapolis because Indianapolis has competitors within its own state"-Ft. Wayne. Evansville, South Bend, Muncie, Marion, Richmond, Gary and Terre Haute.

When the father had given bis testimony as to the knockout blow young Flanagan raised his hand and said: "I licked the old man good and plen ty, judge. And If I ever come home to find that he's been beating mother again I'll send hi in to a hospital for a month." The wise justice let Jim go on. "I've picked the hospital too. There's a doc there told me just where to stick one on the old man's jaw so it won't hurt him much after he comes to." Bernard Flanagan, the father, six feet three and built like a Norman horse, said in defense: "I never touched the oki woman with my foot. I just beat her up a little be cause she sassed me.

Perhaps If the Judge were a higher critic or tne Old Testament Scriptures he might put it this way: "Honor thy father" when he be haves himself hy mother. , I clipped this from the "beauty" page of a Sunday newspaper: Wrinkles are caused by tired muscles. They are more easily prevented than cured. To remain wrlnkleless woman must live a placid existence, free from emotion. Certainly, but I should like to see the picture of the woman except she be a harem beauty who is able to live a placid existence, free from emotion. Why, emotion is woman's life. She will seek it if it does not come to her. She lives In her heart- For that is she a woman. She cannot escape her lot. Only in childhood she can live a more or less "placid life, free from emo tion." As a young bride she must under take the trials of the new housekeeper. The process of readjustment to the wedded life is not an easy one, and often it is made to the accompaniment of many tears. She cannot desist be cause of muscle tire and the beginning of wrinkles. Free from emotion? As the wife she must share the bur dens and divide the sorrows of her husband. She cannot live the placid life and suffer blm to go on alone. She, toe, must wrinkle her brow. The placid life? As the mother she must suffer all the pangs of motherhood. How can she live a life free from emotion when her I heart clutches in an agony of love and I fear through the watcbes of the night for her baby's sake? What cares she in such an hour that the wrinkles may come to her face? Moreover What sort of woman would she be did she escape all these shocks of emo tion? She must be aimless, for a fixed purpose means struggle. She must be loveless, for love means self sacrifice. Do not misunderstand. Woman may escape much needless worry and useless striving. Modern woman Is learning how to rest her tfrod miisrloa liv reasonable relaxation. But the woman's world at the best is a nara one. sne must race it. Ana the wrinkles sooner or later must needs come to her. Let her not be ashamed. The sweetest faces you know are wrinkled faces. And every wrinkle tells a story of vicarious atonement. The sweetest face I ever knew was wrinkled. The last time I saw it was In a coffin. It was the face of mother. A TEMPERANCE LECTURE. Do you know bow alcohol does Its work of ruin to body and mind? A scientist compares the human brain and the nervous system, which it con trols, to the electric street car system of a great city. Somewhere in the suburbs Is the main power bouse, and from it go the feed wires to every part of the city, distributing power to the smaller sta tions and these in turn to other dis tricts. So the brain is the power bouse of the human system. In the brain are generated we know not bow the mysterious forces that govern the functions of the body and the mind. Science calls this energy neuron energy nerve energy. Now, every feed wire of the great power house which runs the street cars and carries the electricity for the lamps in the cars or on the desk of the manager, every wire is able to trans mit just so much electrical energy and no more. Crowd too much on the wire and the fuse "burns out." So with the brain. The nerve wires can carry Just so much neuron energy. Overtax the nerves and they literally burn out , Alcohol overstimuIatesv puts too much on the nerve wires. Something must burn. The brain station controls every function of mind and body. It not only carries- the energy for physical effort, but provides the force for the marshaling of the thoughts, records impressions and even throws Its lamp light on the moral pathway of tbe mind. What happens when the wires are overloaded? Why. the smaller motor centers sub stations are smashed. That means temporary Insanity. If continued it means ruin of the system. Alcohol literally burns out the wires at some point. And the microscope shows the ashes. You can see tbe re mains "mind ashes' Just as easily as you can see tbe ashes in a smoked pipe. And thus does science show through tbe microscope the ruins of a soul like the crater of a burned out to cano. Could there be a stronger temperance lecture? , Mind you. this is no picture by a temperance crank."' It is the revelation of cold, deliberate science demonstrated fact. Alcohol literally burns oat tbe nerve centers. Man's Mistakes.: About tbe only variety In some men's 3 res lies in tbe mistakes tbey make. Atchison Globe. CongressHelpless and Hopeless Arthur I. Street, a Success Maga zine writer, went from man to man among the leaders of both houses, ask ing who. If any, had given his atten tion to the extravagant habits of con gress. And the answer he . got was always that there was no one. Said Burleson of the Appropriations committee of the house, speaking with much feeling: "I was a lawyer before I came here. I know nothing of book keeping." Said Underwood of Alabama, the ranking minority member of the ways and means committee and one of the ablest statisticians in the house: "I have found that it was about all I could do to attend to the tariff, and even in that I can hardly master more than one or two features.' Said Murdock of Kansas, one of the strongest leaders of the insurgents: "I don't know of any one who has gono thoroughly into the subject, and. for my part, I never could get through my head the difference between single and double entry bookkeeping." Said Tawney, chairman of the ap propriation committee: "If Success Magazine will pursue the subject of the fiscal reorganization of the gov ernment with the same persistency with which it has pursued Mr. Cannon and myself, it will do immeasurable service to the country." Said Dolliver of the senate, the keen est of all masters of the . tariff: "I j did not know that the costs of the senate and house office buildings, for instance, were charged to the interior department- I thought they were charged, as they should be, to con gross." Said Cummins of Iowa, one of the most active of the radicals in the up per chamber: "I have been giving all my time to railroads, the postal sav ings banks and the tariff." And these men were typical. All of them are hard-working, self-secrific- ing, public-spirited officials. They de sire to see the government operated in the interest of the people. They do not spare themselves, their purses or their energies. Tawney has been at the edge of nervous prostration from overwork. Underwood has given up half a dozen subjects, such as ship subsidy, of which he was once a mas ter, because he could not cover the field and do it well. Murdock has fought with vigilance and relentless at every phase of the campaign led by Judge Norris to break Cannon-ism. But not one of them has .been able to touch the accounts.' Not one of them has thought of beginning at the top and sweeping clean the careless and extravagant habits of congress, and then working down through tho de partments. ROOSEVELT CRUEL ? Eight-year-old Parisian Boy Scores E-president for Killing Wild Animals. LETTER IN NEWSPAPERS Paris, May 31. The Intransigeant newspaper publishes a curious letter addressed to Colonel Roosevelt by a little boy 8 years old, named Roland McDonald. The lad, whose father is an English writer, has been brought up in Paris. Hence his letter is writ ten in French. He accuses the fam ous huntsman of needless cruelty. Here are a few sentences: "Your son, your friends and yourself are the cruelest people I know. It is a horrible thing to kill zebras, giraf fes, buffaloes, antelopes, lions and tigers. I am glad you missed three or I four wild boars. I know these things because I have read your articles in the magazines. I can read English, but I can write only French. Please write and tell me what you . really think of people who slaughter wild animals for amusement?" This guileless letter has created somewhat of a sensation. , Animal lov ers in all parts of France are express ing their approval of tbe eight-year-old's protest.' A Mistakan Sign ef Generosity.

SYSTEM PAYS IMMEIISE BENEFITS Reports Show Lines East and West of Pittsburg Give $6,500 per Day TO EMPLOYES' FAMILIES TOTAL SUM PAID OUT SINCE THE ESTABLISHMENT OF THIS DE PARTMENT IS IN EXCESS OF 28 MILLIONS. Pittsburg, May SI. Some idea of the extent of the work which is done by the relief departments of the Penn sylvania railroad system is gathered from a report issued today which shows that during the month of April, 1910, an average of over $6,500 a day was paid to members unable to work, and to families of members who died. Since the relief departments for both the lines east and west of Pittsburg and Erie were established, some twenty-four years ago, the sum of 528,292.503.91 has been paid out in benefits. " : . On the lines east of Pittsburg and Erie in the month of April, payments to the amount of $142,344.93 wers made by the relief fund. In benefits to the families of members who died $49,292.83 were paid, while to mem bers Incapacitated for work "the bene fits amounted to $93,052.09. The total payments on the lines east of Pitts burg since the relief fund was estab lished in 1SS6 have amounted to $20. 630.599.10. In April, the relief fund of the Pennsylvania lines west of Pittsburg paid out a total of $60,510.50, of which $21,250 were for the families of mem bers who died and $39,260.50 for mem bers unable to work. The sum of $7,661,904.81 represents the total pay ments of the relief fund of the Penn sylvania lines west since it was estab lished in 18S9. THE BARGAIN CHASE. American Women and the Shopping Gam Mania. Mare money is wasted every year by women buying needless things under tbe excitement of the bargain bunt than is spent In all the gambling houses and race tracks put together, says Mary Heaton Vorse in Success Magazine. When you say that I have no statistics to prove this I answer that I have common sense and have spent much time In city shops. I know, too, what 1 am capab'e of. and I am but a half hearted hunter. I know what my friends do. It isn't for nothing that 1 have seen earnest youus students of economics succumb to this bunting instinct and fare forth to buy ninety -eight cent undergarments. It is not only in tbe stores frequent ed by poor or uneducated women that I have seen tbe more brutal Instincts' of the human race come to the sur face. I 'have seen a charming looking elderly woman in a high class store snatch a dress length of gray voile -from tbe bands of another elderly wo man, and tbe reason I happened to see these sights was because 1 myself was at the sale looking at garments I didn't want and didn't need and buying them. The bargain chase, the shopping game passion or sport, life work or recreation for it may be any one of these, according to the temperament of the womau has American women well in Its grip. Hardly one of us es capes some one of tbe psychological deviations from tbe normal f which I have mentioned. $100 Reward, $100 The readers of this paper will be pleased to learn that there is at least one dreaded disease that science has been able to cure In all Its staves, and that Is Catarrh.
