Announces a St. Louis minister. Put why fourteen, no more or no less? A Harvard professor pays "the kiss in bacteriologically harmless." Must have had lots of experience to talk like that. The discovery of a substitute for rubber may bring down the prices which have bounded up so high. We once were taught that rubber came from caoutchouc, but now It is an nounced that a German professor, uf ter seven years' research, has estab lished the fact that rubber is a poly meric body of lsopren, namely, dime thylenjalooctadlen. We are glad to know. The apparent determination of the utate tax commission to make a care ful Investigation of assessments In some quarters ami even to provide for an entirely new set of valuations where valuations as returned seem surprisingly low is a natural fruit of the recent opinion of the attorney gen eral to the effect that the board has the power to review the work of the assessors and to ac t, if it la so desires, on its own Initiative. The federal census enumerators have had many funny experiences. One of theso Is t-M by Rarker Lloyd, of the Second ward of the Son. Lloyd called at a house on the South side. The woman of the family appeared and ww asked the usual questions. One query was as to livestock. "No," rcplb-d. thp lady of the houe. "I ain't got a h"r! or a cow, hut I've got a mule out in the (back splitting wood." It developed that a family Jir had 1een in progress but a few moments before the arrival of tro enumerator, and It Is assumed that although the lady apparently got the better of the argument, it left her in no pacific frame of mind. There were always, during the dark- est days of his Imprisonment for mur der, Kentucklans who held that Caleb Powers was n martyr, but tho most enthusiastic of his friends would not have been rash enough at that time to predict that in this year of grace 1910, he would be not only free but a candi date for congress. Powers was three times convicted of complicity In the assassination of Governor Goebel of Kentucky. At one time he was sen tenced to bo hanged and twice he was condemned to life imprisonment. Fi nally he wss pardoned after a mistrial. The present prospect Reems to be that If Powers is not made the congres sional candidate of the republican par ty by the district committee he will present himself as a candidate at the primary. The district Is republican by a large majority, and if Powers runs the chances are he will be elected. His friends have nlweys held his trial and condemnation to be a dastardly con rpirnry. Politics is a very lively busi ness in Kentucky. A sufficiently strong ndmlssion has reen made by the representatives of Theodora Roosevelt to make It plain that he Is likely to peak privately to TTmperor William and to King Edward upon peace subjects. The fact that he spoke on pence yesterday at Christian la bears out the words of the peace ad vocates in America when they let it be known not long ago that they expected Mr. Roonevelt to "make a strike for peace" while in the European capitals. It Is definitely known that Mr. Roose. velt's first word on the subject of con cord among the nations was spoken to the Austrian emperor. The report that the conversation between the two touched on peace has not been denied, while other denials have been plenty. The pence advocates In America have been so certain of their ground that already they are preparing, If they can secure the congressional legislation recesary. to make Theodore Roosevelt on hla return to this country the pre siding officer of a peace commission, which they hope will have in Its mem bership. In addition to the former pres. Ident. Andrew Carnegie, Kllhu Root. Joseph II. Choate and Richard Dart- holdt. The pence men have a plan for the Wolrd-Kederatlon league, the details of which already have been published. In the pamphlet published by the lea gue and which Just now is being given wide circulation for It is considered that the time Is ripe there occurs this paragraph: "The peace of the world reposes In the hands of eight men: The presl-iN-nt of the United Htates, Emperor William, Kin Edward, the caar. the president of France, the emperor of Austria-Hungary, the king of Italy and the emperor of Japan. At least six of the.se tight men ure pence ad vocates. The vast majority of the sub jects of all of them will now favor uni versal iKiue and will support measures that will abollh war." This publication of the World-Federation league Is called "Theodore Roosevelt and the Peace Movement." Andrew Carnegie, Richard Partholdt. Hamilton Holt, Oscar T. Crosby (a graduate of 'West Point, by the way) and Joseph II. Choate today are work ins with warlike vigor to secure ac tion by congress which may lead the way to peace, and they expect that Theodore Roosevelt at Chrlstlanla or elsewhere will help to make their work easy. The proposition of a world-wide leg islature, which ten years ago was re ceived with a pitying smile, today is partly realized In the organizations which meet at The Hague. With Theodore Roosevelt nn active force for peace measures among the nations, the outlook for the limitation of armaments is brighter than ever before. -THIS DATE IN HISTORY." 17S0 Fort Moultrie .Georgia, sur rendered to the British. 1837 ranlc in Europe caused the price of cotton to drop to six cents. i 840 Demetrius Augustine Gallitzin, famous missionary, died at Loretto, Pa.

Jeff Davis ' United " Spates'" senator from Arkansas, was born near Rich mond, in Little River county, Arkansas, Mav 6. 1862. After receiving his pre liminary education at Russellvlile, Ar kansas, he studied law at Vanderbilt university, and was admitted to the bar at the use of nineteen. He rapidly rose to prominence as a lawyer and speaker, and in 18'J2 was elected pros ecuting attorney for the fifth judicial district. After serving two terms as prosecuting attorney he was elected attorney-general of Arkansas. In PJOO, following a picturesque and exciting campaign, he was elected governor. He was re-elected twice, nnd has the dis tinction of being the first governor of Arkansas to be three times elected to office. In 1907 he was elected to the United States senate to succeed Sena tor James II.

Many Members Quit WANTED An "angel." Apply to Frank W. Healy, manager of the Broadway Amusement company. iMr. Healy wants an "angel" because the Broadway Amusement company Is at the end of its rope. Indeed, it is- a question whether even an angel could save the. day now, for already many, members of the company have gow back to Broadway, or nearer destinations, and the re maining members are going to tlee the chill winds of the upper peninsula as soon as they can make the necessary arrangements, says the Marquette Journal. Mr. Healy, the manager, is the principal loser as a result of the un successful season which resulted in the closing of "Fan tana," the com pany's attraction, here, following Tuesday's evening's engagement at the opera hou.e. He Is said to have Inst considerable money In the ven ture.. He owns the scenery and stage equipment for the piece, which will, r the time, be stored here. The attraction has had a 'bad going 'or several weeks past, and salaries have been running ihehind while the ompany's receipts have been used, to get from town to town, to 1111 the dates booked, in the houe that a run of irood business would be encountered that would permit the squaring of all the outstanding accounts. The run of good business, however, has failed to materialize. In Duluth, the copper country and iron country, ouses were small and the company's share of the receipts no nore than large enough to keep It moving. From Marquette the company was booked to go to Oladstone and 'Manistlque. Inquiry Tuesday evening failed to disclcxe any encouraging information about the outlook for lbusinesn in these towns, and Mr. Healy decided that the unequal fight might as -well be given up here, nnd Informed the company to that effect. Mr. Healy has impressed those he has met here as tclng a man of square dealings, and regret Is felt that his venture has fallen on bad days. .The attraction -was not one, however, that could play the theaters of this circuit with any hope f great success, for It standard fell considerably short of what theatergoers have come to expect In "dollar and. a half shows. The collapse of Broadway Amuse ment company is but one of many similar Incidents that have cast play er folk adrift the past season, and the one before. The pickings for theatri cal companies have tecn lean, and much money has been lost In wooing th fickle favor of the theatergoing public.
