they stimulate the people to higher

together in a social way, which of it
self is valuable.
Cold weather will soon have a con

through their own neglect, will be

The Social Service Convention held
at Madison, Misconsin, recently,
threshed out some very timely sub

in the near future. The contention
made by one speaker that while much
has been done in recent years to les
sen the labors of the farmer very
little had been done to lighten the
work of the farmer's wife was very
much to the point. Machinery has

crops but in the household work
done ;:; just at>out the way it was

been some amelioration, but it is
very slight as compared with what
the farmer, has received. i
What Hope Has the Farmer.
The federal department of justice
I has' taken to the United States Su
preme Court the effort to indict al
leged "bulls" on the -New York Cot
ton Exchange. Here is an interesting
transcript from the Associated Press
report of the hearing; it ought to be
read and analyzed by southern farm
ers, congressmen and business men
generally: "Chief Justice White
asked if the government considered
that a combination to force down the
price of a commodity would be a vio
lation of law as well as a combina
tion to put the prices up as charged
1 in the present indictment. Mr. Leh
mann said he was not. familiar enough
with the market to reply." j
1 So It seeims the department of jus
tice- has concentrated its "familiar
ity*.*- with, its study of the cotton mar
ket, solely upon a crusade to dis
courage all efforts to protect the price
jof cotton, says the Atlanta Constitu
tion. That is the flat announcement
made by It representative to the
highest tribunal in the land. Opj>or
tunitles galore offered to the govern
ment to investigate andN prosecute
cotton bear movements that meant
the loss of millions of dollars to the
producers of the southern states?
the one class of American producers
who have suffered most from market
I juggling and card-sta,cking apparent
to. a first-year law student.
I Yet these opportunities have been
Ignored, the spectacle of hundreds of
thousands of toll-grimed, mortgage
[ridden farmers considered as negli
gible, while the government gaily
makes Its debut as market censor and
"price-protector" by instituting pros
ecutions against men who were seek
ing to maintain the market./
\ An additional ugly feature of the
situation is the seeming reliable re
port that the government did rot take
one step in the premises until urged
by bear gamblers who were on the
"short side" of the market, and who
had all to gain by instigating legal
proceedings against men and who
held their contracts. No more pleas
ant is the further report that officials
of the department of justice had pre
viously been aligned in high capaci
ties with cotton exchange firms.
These phases are, however, mere
episodes, as again3t the glaring ad
mission made by the department of
justice that it considers the interests
of the producer as of so little mo
ment that it has, apparently, given
not one thought to ways aud means
to protect them. In the face of such
conditions, what hope has the cotton
farmer? With the government Itself
seemingly stacking the cards against
him, to what source can he look for
Congress should take cognizance of
thlfl.matter! The Issue is non-parti
san. What has happened to the cot
ton farmer, may happen at any time
to the wheat, the corn grower, the
producer of any staple quoted In the
country's markets. It is time to find
out .whether the department of jus
tice is holding the wales level, or
whether it is giving them a tilt away
from the man who toils. Probe"

Vicious Tastes and Examples.
When a society woman makes such
' a pet of a monkey as to provide for it
'a superbly furnished room an Ivory
j bed for It to sleep upon, silver dishes
for it to eat from and half a dozen or
more servants ..c wait upon It, it indi
cates not, simply a weak mind, and a
foolish hobby, but it is one of these
straws which shows the trend of life
among people who are possessed of
far more money than sense, and who
have no idea of their obligations to
the world. Such people 'by their man
1 ner of life are imitating the practises
of the idle ricn during the degenerate
days of ancient Rome, and which
practices were largely responsible for
her decadence. It is not to be sup
posed that the idle rich in this coun
try will exert so great an influence,
but undoubtedly they get many imi
tators and, what is perhaps of more
concern they cause a vast amount of
.'very natural discontent. If a social
Revolution ever does occur in this
country the responsibility for it will
lie mainly with the class that makes
more of monkeys and dogs than of
children, which tuins night into day,
which misuses wealth, and has no
scruples in smashing to pieces the
Most Hopeful Sign.
The fact that Phila?f^ hia has
elected a reform mayor and city coun
cil is one of the most hopeful political
signs of the times. There are all
kinds of reformers. Some are re
formers for principle's sake, and oth
ers just as a matter of policy. The
first having at heart the removal of
abuses ami the enactment of legisla
tion for tho common good are sin
cere and consistent in their efforts.
They may make mistakes sometimes
but those mistakes are of the judg
ment and not of the heart. The re
formers for policy only are move!
solely by selfish considerations, and
if the end is reached the mask of re
form is thrown off speedily. Both
kinds were seeking office in Phila
delphia, but she elected the real Te
I formers to the great surprise of the
whole country. That the insincere
pose in the garb of reform is itself
eloquent testimony to the influence
of the movement to purify politics in
city, state and nation. Philadelphia
had the good sense to elect the genu
ine reformer and we congratulate her.
Decline of Great Families.
The claim of royal descent by some
Americans calls attention to the sin
gular decay of once great and power
ful royal families. No race in Eu
rope surpassed the Plantagenets in
royal position and personal achieve
ments and yet in 16.')7 the great
great grandson of Margaret Plantag
enet, daughter and heiress of George,
Duke of Clarence, was a shoe-maker
in Newport, England and as recently
as thirty years ago a lineal descen
dant of Edward III was a sexton of a
London parinsh church. Within a cen
tury after the death of Oliver Crom
well his great-great grandson, the last
male heir, was a London attorney.
While these caseo show a decline in
official and social position they do not
necessarily Bhow a decline in moral
worth or mental power. A shoemak
er, or sexton, or lawyer may in this
I respect be the peer of the most dis
tinguished of such families.

think of him as only gone before to
draw us nearer each day to that home
where there is no parting.
To-day our troubled hearts are sad,
Our eyes are dim with tears,
For God has taken from us the lov
We though was ours for years.
One sad, sad long year!
