J Wealth of Warren
Wyoming is one of the “backward states” on the
list of Joseph R. Grundy, the lobby king of the
East, the money raiser of the republican party and
one of the aces of America. Francis E. Warren, for
many years a senator from Wyoming, died last month
in Washington. His estate la conservatively estimated
at $7,000,000. He owned an empire in Wyoming of
which his holdings In Cheyenne were the center. *
His ranch and land holdings extended west to Al
bany county, Wyoming, east into Nebraska, south into
Colorado and north Into the Montana line. Among
his holdings were $4,000,000 In United States Rubber
company preferred shares and $1,875,000 In stock of
the Standard Oil company of Indiana. Both were be
queathed to his widow.
I His successor, Patrick J. Sullivan. Is a ranch king.
A sheep king, a cattle king and an oil king. Sen.
Sullivan is a conservative. He Is a protectionist of an
ultra type but having seen a great light he has let it
be known that In the making of the new tariff meas
ure he will vote “a tariff for everything that needs
protection.” This Is going all the way and not half
1 the way.
Jonn b. Kendrick u tne democratic senator rrom
this “backward state” In the Grundy files. He Is a
native Texan. He is a man of millions. In his youth
‘ he was a range rider. He drove herds from Texas
to Wyoming. Montana and Idaho. He is a mem
bo: of the progressive republican-democratic senate
coalition. He is for the producers of the west and the
south and the country over for that matter.
He is the only democrat in the history of Wyoming
to land a seat in the American senate and to hold
It. He is serving hie third term.
Now Mrs. Nellie Tayloe Ross, a former governor
and a democrat, may make the race for the senate
next year. Wyoming was the first Amerfcan com
monwealth to grant the ballot to woman. This away
back in territorial days. It would be most fitting
for Wyoming to win the distinction of having elect
ed first woman to a seat in the upper house of the
American congress.
Foreign crude is on the free list and the late
Francis E. Warren, a protectionist In everything else,
believed it should be kept on the free list.
Another Merger
Details of the $15,000,000 merger of the Southwest
Dally Products company, with J. C. Penny, chain
store operator and southern agriculturist, chairman
of the board, have been made public.
E. T. Laubscher will be the vice president of the
combination in charge of its properties in South
' Texas.
It is said the new company will be the largest of its
kind in the United States south of the Mason and
Dixon line, with properties in virtually every south
ern state, and gross sales in excess of $15,000,000
It is announced, furthermore, that activities di
rected toward the actual operation of dairy farms
• will be educational “and will not In any way be
1 competitive with local dairy fanners.”
Is there a new civilisation? Go read the star*—
or the dally newspapers of American and the world
for that matter. j

In weeks. After all, Roy was alive.
And Peter Clarke would spend all
his millions to make him well. He
would have the greatest specialists
in the country, and the best nurses.
If it were possible for human hands
to save him he would be saved.
Her knees grew weak when she
remembered if he did get well he
would have to be told all the things
that had happened to her— and
how she had stolen the stockings.
What she feared most of all was
to have him know that she had kept
silent after he had been kidnaped
in the plane.
What could she say that would
make Roy understand that she had
really meant to help him and save
his life?
Aunt Bessie patted her tired head,
and told her not to do any more

everything in the first place they'd
have treated you lots different. But.
I understand."
“I didn’t know.” Rosalie said, sor
rowfully. "I thought these dreadful
people had taken Roy away for

Everybody I have ever known has
been good and kind. This is all so
new to me.”
