A.OWNBY City Editor. Residence Phone, Bell No 289.1 \ I \!XI \ IDOL. Pride goetfy before a fall, saith the Scripture;' and the president of the United States has come very near veryfying the scriptural adage. He has always posed as the em bodiment of consistency, propriety and political virtue. He has so of ten. figuratively speaking, held up his hands in horror at what he con sidered lapses from his self-set stand ard that people began to think of him as a perambulating protest, a peri pat hetie exclamation point. Whoever differed from him was classed as undesirable and was as signed to the Ananias club. His word alone was unimpeachable; he alone embodied truth. The people, howev er, are "getting on to" his excellen cy. They do not always expect abso lute consistency in any i>olitieian but they do not approve of glaring palpable inconsistency. Dealing with the subject from an entirely non-partisan standpoint, it is asked: \\'ho believes in the sin cerity of a man who, after writinf to Mr. Harriman in the terms which Mr Roosevelt did. and using him and his money, and money he raised as he did. alter he had secured his re-election turned upon and denoun ced him. Mr. Roosevelt descended from his high station to engage in a wrangli with Governor Haskell, whom he de· nounced as being an ally and tool ol the Standard Oil company; yet h« permitted one of his cabinet mem be is to collect $11)0,000 from t ht same company to promote Mi Roosevelt's election. Not only did he do that, but whet he heard the money had been re ceived he made ostentatious displa; of indignation, and ordered the mon « y returned. It was never returned however, bin he made the man wh< collected it secretary of the treasur; a position he now holds—and thi money was used to get republieat votes. He denounced Judge Parker foi staling the absolute truth abou campaign contributions, but he liai never had the manhood to apologiz· inc. he has found that Judge Park ei did state the truth. There can be no denial or explan ation of these things. They mark Mr Roosevelt a; a pretender, and as -umi r of virtue which he has not. No man in public life has evei lost asie and influence to such an extent and in such a short time. It is because Mr. Roosevelt has not been frank and fair, candid and just. ! He has as.s«ll«»J Mi. lUyun Ilk·· a ■ ward bully, only φ. Ue met with dig nified. unanswerable. crushing reply. He ha« proved thaf, instead of be lnft a statesman t reading high levels, he Is essentially a politician. who has used all the |>owers of hie great office to name his successor, and has been inconsistent, unfair and un candid. Houston Chronicle. Did you ever notice a little child dancing up anil down for no other I leason than that it was in perfect I health and bubbling over with hap piness and good feeling? If you are at all observing you dowfttlees have, and have probably thought what a pleasure it would be to think all Its life the same bapiiy feeling might prevail and no sorrow or care come to mar a single moment of Its hap py existence.—Denison Herald. We have noticed It. all of us. And a pretty sight it is. too. Λ child is en titled to happiness and freedom from cumbering cares. The child who hasn't such boons is being cheat ed, either by its parents or by social conditions over which it has no cou i trol and of which it is an innocent I victim. The same principle would also, doubtless, govern the lives of children of a larger growth, those who are called men and women by way of differentiation. But as niatur er beings we are largely responsible for our own woes and miseries, [ whereas in childhood we do not have them if they are not thrust upon us. — Dallas News. And the foundation of all discontent is human selfish j uess. Some people are never happy unless they are miserable. Texas nostniaefers refused to as semble in a hall where the picture of Thos. L. Hisgen was displayed. Thin was an exhibition of "shrivel ed localism." to which heretofore Texas lias been a stranger. The por trait of Mr. Hisgen, Mr. Tait, Bryan or Mr. Anybody Else could scarcely have any important bearing on a man's qualifications for postmaster.

Oct. 22.—I.s it the gy I roscope attachment on the modern I trans-atlantic liner or the bail bear ings on which tbey run which has I reduced sea-sickness among the pas sengers? That some explanation is , due comes to one's understanding j after a little examination of food figures relating to 1907, picturesque ly set forth by tlie chief steward of j one of the big liners. Seasick passengers, no matter how '< ninny are carried, could not com , fortably consume food costing at I wholesale more than $4,000,000. I This is seen at once, when it is not |ed that the expense for coal on the I same line was but $7,000, and their consuming capacity is notoriously 'greater than that of passengers, j As to champagne, which is said to j be an excellent cure and for that matter a preventive of seasickness, passengers last year pulled the plugs 'out of only a few more than .">1,000 j bottles of champagne. When it conies to claret tUe fig ures jump so respectably that it is seen that a man may raise a thirst somewhere west of Suez. Of that ruddy beverage the first class pas j sen gem consumed 129,20!» bottles. I But the consuni|)tion by the third ) clans passengers make that appear 1 ■·' mere tipple by comparison, for those in the steerage joyfully drank not less than 121,297 «allons. Home Brandy and llevr. Of the various grades 0f brandy the passengers consumed 20,641 bot tles and 73,384 gallons. But these are after all trifling nips, for of beer more than half a million gallons were drunk. The recent, installation of the a la caite system in restaurants of the modern liners accounts for an ama zing growth in the consumption of delicacie.-;. Restaurant diners on the liners whose figures are. being considered consumed many thousand partrid ges, snipe, quails, pheasants, grouse, canvas-back ducks. They demanded hundreds of thousands of live lob sters and crawfish, of fresh little necks, blue-points and soft-shell crabs. They consumed such a quantity of gieon turtle soup that the chefs had to use 13,407 pounds of fresh turtle in its maki-ng. Ci Hiing to the more substantial articles of diet it is found that beef there were used 8.31 1,927 pounds, and of pork and veal and mutton about three-quarters of a million pounds of each. Potatoes to go with these weighed in excess of 10,000 tons, a very fair cargo in itself. The passengers consumed of eggs 6,">00.000 and af calves' liver and bacon an appropriate quantity to sup plement the eggs, and with their morning toast 216,503 tins of mar malade and other such sweets. It is noted that besides what smoking material passengers took on board with them 2,327,225 cigars and packages of cigarettes were had from the smoking room steward. While the consumption of beçr, wine and spirituous liquor indicates pretty generous living, figuring on the basis of all the passengers car ried for the year each passenger con sumed after all only five-sixths of a gallon of such cheering beverages and the average consumption οι nun oral water was a full gallon. These Apures do not Include 7«.223 bottles of sterilized milk, dealt out to the children on board. AN OVKSf LKTTKR. To the Kriitor of Thill I'upci· and I Want the People of Waxaharhie to Know thai I Write the Follow ing Voluntarily.—Harry L. Clooa . lei. I write these few lines out of grat itude for what Mi-o-na has done for me for dyspepsia and indigestion. I have suffered for the past five years, and have tried different doc tors, but have had 110 relief until 1 bought a ."id cent box of Mi-o-na from our drug store, ( R. W. Kuowlton's) here a short time ago. The first box did me so much good that I immediately purchased anoth er one. and 1 now feel better than 1 have at any time in the past five years. Am able to eat anything and everything, and get a good night's sleep afterwards. Was so bad al one time that all I was able to eat for over a month was a raw egg in a half a glass of milk, two or three times a day. I would earnestly advise anyone suffering as I was from dyspepsia, to give this remedy a fair trial. 1 re main, gratefully yours, Harry L. Goôdieï, No. 9 1-2 River street. As tabula, O. Mi-o-na is the only logical dys pepsia remedy on the market today. It is not a digester. It does not con tain a particle of pepsin. It cures by building up the muscular walls of the stomach, and making the stomach so strong and perfect that it is able without artificial help to digest an ordinal y meal with ease, and without discomfort. The experience of Mr. Goodiel Is a common one. and it is safe to say that Mi-o-na tablets have cured more acute and chronic diseases of the stomach than any other medicine. Hood & Curlin sell it at 50 cents a box, and guarantees it to cure or money back. Will Change Situation. "As the constitution now stands any country district wishing to in crease its school funds by local taxa tion can do so only by a two-thirds majority and even then not beyond the pitiful sum of twenty cents on '< 1 j 1 -'-π-— v. ~ e property. The amendment proposed, if carried, will change the situation In two respects: First, it will substi tute majority for minority rule, it will permit one-third of the citizens 110 longer to thwart the progressive movements of two-thirds of the citi zens in the most important enter prise and activity for good and ef ficient citizenship. Why. Indeed, should two-thirds be required in the matter of education, which we all acknowledge to be good and which we are in no immediate danger of getting too much of, while we per mit hare majorities to rule in every thing else? Must we be chary in al lowing the people to do good, or in giving them liberty to co-operate in increasing the efficiency and length of their schools for the betterment of their childjen? The second change that will be'effected by this new amendment is that the people will be given the liberty to vote a tax of fifty cents on the one hundred dol lars worth of property for local school purposes instead of twenty cents. "The amendment will not change the city situation at all, but will give the country certain privileges which the city already possesses. Further more. the amendment will not in crease taxes, but will grant the priv ilege to those districts where more money is needed for longer or more efficient schools to tax themselves to provide for their needs."—Baptist Standard.
