King Peter of Servia has dropped down from Rojal to plain life. He should go one step further, and try' the "Simple Life." o The comptroller of the currency says there is a great demand for $5 notes.

Pv the is over. the next administration will be starved in Wall street Prophet Dowie still insists that he is different from other men. We hardly think he is as proud of ihe difference as "the other men" are. . Mrs. Chadwick now realizes that she has made a mistake somewhere. Yes, she should have gone over into New Jersey and had herself incor porated. ; St. Louis City council is consider ing a bill for keeping suspicious characters away from the city. They evidently believe , in protecting "home industries." After the 4th of next March, Sen ator Allison will have served for a longer continuous time than any man now in, the Senate. The Senior Sen ator from Iowa, will, by 190S, be too big for anything short of the White House. President Roosevelt is busy looking for a new Commissioner of Pensions. It is understood that no application will be considered for the position until the applicant signs a, pledge not to write any poetry during his term of office. The December number of the American High School, published by Miss Charlotte Myrick, late of the Palladium's staff, is out, and it is an excellent one. Miss Myrick 's taste is shown in the general arrange ment of the work. If the wealthy people of this city desire to devote a few dollars of their vast resources to making children happy let them contribute to the Palladium fund. Some of the letters received almost make one's heart ache. "Please remember us for we haven't any papa to get us any toys" says one of them and another from a little girl expresses a wish for a gift for her little brother who can neither walk nor see. What bet ter use of money than to be Santa Claus and spend some of it to make these dear little ones happy at least one dav in the long, drcarv year? Christmas shoppers need look no further than the columns of the Pal ladium to find what they desire for gifts on that great, holiday Christ mas. Never in the history of. the city have merchants used so much space in the Palladium as this year. They are the live, energetic, pushing merchants who lead and the selec tions they offer have never been ex celled.
