It is hoped that she will fully recover, but her escape is won* derful. The horse pulled the single tree loose and escaped from the bug gy- The Dowie Humbug. Zion is financially embarrassed. The prophet is making frantic ap peals to bis addle beaded followers to dig, dig, dig up more of the pre cious coin of the repnblio ere the house he has reared falls about his ears. But they dig not, neither do they spin, and bankruptcy is staring the coarse, vulgar and sacriligious old humbug out of countenance. Dowie linn many elements of the leader which appeal to the religious fanatics among the weaker minded of the human family. His career has demonstrated once more the utter luck of common seuse and clear reasoning faculties which afflict a large number of the human race wLo ordinarily pass as saae and iutelli gent. The snccess of such faikrs as Dowie, even in a small degree, serves to emphasize the truth of the asser tion that, after all, the marvelous de velopment of the human intellect has not carried it far beyond thesav age state in the matter of supersti tions aud love of humbuggery in gen* vral. —State Journal. The Rubber Industry In Colorado. Colorado hus drawn the eye of the rubber trust.

During the past week Mr. J. Wharton King of New York City, a representative of the American Rnb her Company, otherwise known as the rubber trust, has been visiting the state. Recently the announcement was made that the roots of a weed that grows on the hills and mesas of the ntate where grass would not think of trying to thrive, had been found to yield rubber when reduced to a pulp. This story interested the rubber trust immediately because it meant n competitor. A week ago a carload of the plant reached Denver from Buena Vistn, and more of it is to be shipped.

How Cheap Baking Powder is Made A recent seizure of a lot of “cheap” baking powders by the authorities of a neighboring city has exposed the character of the low pi iced brands of baking powders wbicb many manu facturers are offering throughout the country. The pi ice of the powders first attrated attention to them. Sam pies were taken and analyzed The official report of the analysis showed the stuff to be “alum powders,” com posed chiefly of alum, sulphuric acid aud pulverized rock. The powders were declared dangerous to health and several thousand pounds were confiscated and destroj’ed. Physicians have fiequently cau tinned consumers against mixing food with these so callsd “cheap” baking powders. They are All found when analyzed, to contain large per centages of alum aud sulphuric acid to which are added various sorts of filling matter sometimes both injur ions and nasty. The high class, cream of tartar bakiug powders, are the most eco nomical and wholesome and should always be selected for use. They will be found cheaper in the end, be sides making the food better and more healthful. The Postoffice Frauds.

DECEMBER 9, 1903, not be pushed to a conclusion with out raising a storm of protest from those who are connected with the ac cused, either in the way of friend ship or as accomplices or beneficiar ies of their misdeeds. Unquestion ably the president is making enemies for himself by bis relentless stand for the punishment of official wrong doing, bnt he is also making friends of everyone who believes that public officials should be held strictly ac countable for tbeir official acts. It would be a good thing for tbe country if there were more people in all paits of it who were thoroughly impressed with the truths in the closing sentences of tbe president’s comments: “No crime calls for sterner repro bation than tbe crime of the corrnp tionist in public life, and of tbe man who seeks to corrupt him. The bribe giver and the bribe taker are equally guilty. Both alike sin against tbe primary law of tbe state’s safety. questions of difference in party policy sink into insignifi IHH jEWEI ‘--^STOVES^^^ ■ It is Not Accidental fl jA that genuine Jewel Stoves keep the fuel bills low and last so long.

HUDDLESTON cance when the people of this coun try are brought face to face with a question like this, which lies at the root of honest and decent govern inent. On this question, and on all others like it, we cun afford to have no division among good citizens. In the last resort good laws and good administration alike must rest upon tbe broad basis of sound public opinion. A dull public conscience, an easy going acquiescence in cor ruption, infallibly means debase ment iu public life und such debase ment in tbe end means the ruin of free institutions. Self-government becomes a farce if the representa tives of the people corrupt others or are themselves corrupted. Freedom is not a gift will tarry long in the bands of the dishonest or of those so foolish or so incompetent as to tolerate dishonesty in their public servants. Under our system all pow er comes from tbe people, and all punishment rests ultimately with tbe people. The toleration of the wrong, not the exposure of the wrong, is the real offense.” —Pueblo Chieftain.
