A Winchester paper says the the town is on the verge of becoming a city. It will stay on the verge, too, till it gets more street cars. . She can never be a city till she has more than one and that marked No. 13. Celebrations come high, but it seems that Louisville must have them. ' The Perry Centennial cost $34,037.50, or about $5,000 more than was guaranteed. Those who will have to raise the balance ill wish that that the Commodore and his men had met the enemy and were theirs. The argument that will cut more fig ure in cutting down accessions to the ranks of the suffragettes is the state ment prepared after full investigation that a woman reduces her chances for marrying 50 per oent. by doing so. The registration of women fell off about 1.000 at Lexington,. greatly to the disgust of the promoters of votes for wo men. The dear things are finding out that there are some matt ers at least that should be left to the men, such as vot ing and wearing breeches. Seeretary of Slate Bryan says the world is growing better." We should think it would feel better to a man who has just pocketed $(1,500 to the good for few lectures. Texas has six candidates for Governor. The Lone Star Slate is too big to do anything in a small way. We are afraid that Col. Roosevelt left no one at Armage Jdou to battle for the Lord, or as he may see it, for him. The doctor who discovered appendeci- tts has gone hence.- Serves him right. He'll know better next time than to be fooling around in the abdominal cavity. It may not be exactly correct to say that Chairman Thomas A. Combs is making monkeys of the fusion advocates in Lexington, because nature doubtless did that for most of them, but the way he is showing them up is a caution. He is s icking square to the record, too, and making votes for Democracy every time he takes his pen in hand. It really be gins to look like taking candy from a child for the Democrats to win this time. The Department of Agriculture an nounces that the Tylenchus Devastatrix has invaded the United Slates and the future of the onion industry is in jeop ardv. The invader with the imposing name is known also as the onion eel worm and has hitherto confined his op erations to foreign countries. Even in grief over this sorrowful announcement a gleam of hope appears. The fellow who is accustomed to eating onions can't gratify bis propensity to blow his breath in our face as often as formerly. Paris is about to have a water famine, but as she is "wet," people possibly use it there only for laundry purposes, so it won't hurt much. The Qimax Living Up To Its Name. Of cou rse ou r patrons observed what a great paper the last issue of the Cli max was. It accomplished the feat no other paper in Richmond ever did, of printing at 3 o'clock p. m. three or' four columns of Judge Benton's charge to the grand jury, which he did not begin de livering till 10:30 a. m. It gave the re sults of the first game in the World's Series of base ball, played at New York the same afternoon and local items up to the minute, with all the general news condensed for quick reading. " We have set the pace and intend to keep it. All we ask is a reasonable sup. port and we will give the people of Kiel mond and vicinity a newspaper such as they never dreamed could be issued here. For only $1 a year the Climax, issued twice a week, is the cheapest paper in the State.' We can lake a few more sub scribers at that price. Don't hesitate to try and be one of them. Buy Before Further Advance. The price. of radium has been advanc ed $10,000 a gram because of an unpre cedented demand for the precious sub stance. Radium is now'quoted at $115, 000 a gram, which means a pound of it would be valued at more than $52,000, 000, if such a quantity of it could be amassed. Postal Rates in 1830. According to a table of the posioffices in the United States, as they weru Oct. 1, 1S30, the whole number of ojfices in the U. S. was 8,010. The rates of post age established by Congress in 1S25 were: On a single letter, composed of one piece of paper, for any distance not exceeding 30 miles, 6 penis; over 30 miles and not exceeding 80 miles, 10 cents: over 80 and npt exceeding 150 miles, 12 1-2 cents; over 150 and not exceeding 400 miles, 18 cents; over 400 miles, 25 cents; a letter composed of two pieces of paper was charged double these rates; of three pieces, triple and four pieces quadruple these rates. For newspapers the rate was 1 cent for 100 miles and 1 1-2 cents for over 100 miles. Lewiston Journal. Boxes For Sale. Dry goods boxes of all sizes for sale cheap at E. V.

Attorney General Dawson, of Kansas, in enumerating the good that has re sulted from prohibition in thai State, sets out the good things briefly as fol lows: There are 510,000 children in the pub lic schools in Kansas who never saw an open saloon in that State. . More than half of the county jails are empty. ,. Sixty-five out of the 105 counties of the Stale have no inmates of the State penal institutions. Many counties have not had a jury try a case in ten years. . Eighty-seven counties have no in sane. Fifty-four counties- have no feeble minded. Ninety-six counties have no inebri ates. Twenty-nine counties have not a sin gle inmate on their poor farms. ' . ' Kansas is the richest State in the Un ion; its average wealth per capita is f 1, 700. ,- - Less than ten of the 780 newspapers in the Slate- accept liquor advertise ments, one of them being . in Atchison. Fur Center of The World. ' The United States Government through Secretary of Commerce Red field has just made a decision that will make St. Louis the fur center of the world. That is, to change the sale of all the Government catch of all seal skins, foxes and other Alaska furs, from London to St. Louis. - This is the first time' in history that the American seal catch has been mark eted through American channels. - The history ol the seal is one of the most absorbing and romantic of all the great American industries. While the U. S. Government has pi od need wonder fully interesting books on the subject. and which can be had free of charge, the whole country will be interested in a few facts bearing on the seal history of North America, especially in the light of the recent action of the Department of Commerce, which stamps St. Louis as the fur center of the world.. . The price paid to Russia for the whole or Alaska was 17,000,000. t He revenue- from the seal islands alone rough, bar ren, forbidding spots that comprise but an infinitesimal area of the Alaska map, has been $15,000.000 more than twice the sum paid for the entire territory. During the first year of Uncle Sam's possession, the catch was about 200,000 to 300,000 seals, but the herd has dimin ished so considerably that as a result laws have been enacted by weich the herds will be conserved, and future catches increased. y This great diminution of the herds has been the result of pelagic sealing the killing of seals in the open sea. Whole fl els would sometimes lay on the seal islands while their crews killed the female seals which swam out 16 sea seeking food. At sea the sexes can not be distin guished, and the females predominating the pelagic catch is made up largely of this class, the percentage being from 85 to 00 per cent of females. The death of a female seal was not the only evil. She was out seeking food for her pup which she had left on shore, so that her death meant also the death of the young one. The United Stales, Russia, Japan and Great Britain have made a pact which stipulates that no longer shall the fur seal be killed on the high seas. The seal is a polygamist. The larger and stronger males have harems, rang ing from 20 to 40 in number according to the fighting strength of the " King of the Harem." One bull has been known to have 200 cows in his harem. Naturally there is a large surplus of mateles males whose one object in life is to get a harem of their own, entailing continuous warfare and bloodshed in which often the female is torn to pieces or maimed in the struggle for ownership. To kill off a goodly number of these dis turbing bachelors of the herd is there fore necessary not only for the good of the herd itself, but also for the good of the ski us, for naturally a mutilated skin or an old one has very little value. Nearly two years ago Congress made a law stopping - the killing of seals en tirely on U. S. Islands for five years, ex cept seals needed for food by natives on the islands. . . In 1837 a seal skin brought from $2 to $3; in 1890, f 17 to $30; while in 1900, the price reached the $10 mark. The price on seal garments, however, have indi cated a fictitious value, due to the heavy duty entailed by London shipments, and fur dealers have had to demand an ex horbitaot figure for an article is. a which home "product and sbould,and could have been, been bought for much less At present time St. Louis is the larg est primary fur market in the world. and is estimated .that three-fourths of all the furs trapped on the North Amer ican Continent are shipped to St. Louis houses to be sold.

"This is not a day of triumph; it is a day of dedication," were the words of WooMrow Wilson upon assuming the Presidency on March 4. Jit might be said that yesterday was the day of triumph', when Mr. Wilson placed his signature upon the tariff bills, the act marked the accomplishment of the prime pledge upon which the Demo cratic parly sought and was entrusted with power. It has kepi the faith. Probably no single provision of any tariff bill ever suited all parts of the country, but the Underwood bill was drafted unquestionably by men who sought to insure what they believe to be the greatest good for the greatest num ber. This in itself is a refreshing fea ture of the bill, and may be taken as a hopeful sign of the times.' It is significant, too, that men who persistently expressed belief that disas ter lurked in the Underwood schedules with the accomplishment of his chief measure of Democratic doctrine are changing their tune. Already the skies are clearing for them. Now let business go on! H Tobacco Sticks N Sticks are scarce and the price will surely ad vance.
