The woman who thinks more of the ballot than she does of her baby will never boost this old nation forward many notches. Lettuce is mighty good for chil dren. A New York boy fell from a fifth story window and lit in a barrel of it unharmed. Togo drawe a salary of only $3000 a year. He oould stand on the firing line for almost aay old ball team in this country and get twioe as much. A political writer in an eastern Journal heads an article, "Trouble Ahead for Russia." This is bard to believe considering the peaceful con ditions that have prevailed in that country for so long. The Clinton, Mo., bank oashier ad mite forgeriee to tbe amount of 998,000.

After repreaenting the state of Ore goa in the United Bute* senate for twenty-two year*, Senator Mitchell baa been convioted before a jury of hi* own people for taking a distinct part in the enormoua land fraud* per petrated in hia etate. When we eon aider the circumstance* and analyae them, taking into consideration tbe man's qualification*, there eeem* no ezcu«e for the orime. He was a man of intelligence, a lawyer of renown, a man ol strong personalities, and a scholar. He had attained to one of the higbeet positions witbin the gift of tbe people but he failed to learn tbe one le**on that "it ia better to choose a good name than great riobea." Senator Mitchell oould have lived hi* declining year* in peace and luxury in the sun-kis*ed valee of Oregon but, through greed and graft be haa hum bled the whole senate in tbe eyee of tbe world and has brought disgrace to bi* own door that will ating hi* conscience for the rest of hi* day*. Patent Cure-Ails. It ia eaay to recommend tbinge, much easier, uaually, than to refuae the endorsement. Tbe atory of men endoraing notee for friende, having in the end to pay and finding ruin in oonaequenoe, ia aa long aa tbe many obaptere of tbe "Arabian Nigbte Entertainment." Going security ia bad buaineae. Through the operation of eurety companies, doing tbia work for a suit able fee and hedged about with cau tion and restriction, muob of danger to tbe individual under tbe old meth od may be avoided. But, with tbe multiplying of reme diee and their acquirement of atand ing in the patent office tbe testimo nial busiueaa baa materially increas ed. One frequently find, m tbe wetteat, tendxreat, moat inacoeeable part of the lawn lurid bookleta in amaaing red and yellowa ahowing portraits in profuaion of atrange looking people all cured aocording to their own statementa, of awful diaeaaee and un usual oouiplicationa of bad tbinge of life. Benjamin Franklin Swipee, of Eu gene, Oklahoma, writea that he haa been • sufferer ainoe infancy from corns, deafneaa, indigeation, inability to see without glaaeea and a distress ing growth of hair on hia teeth. Miss Binkum'a "Dandelion Gravy" waa brought by a friend to bia atten tion, and, after taking thirty-four bottlee, Mr. Swipea sees better than ever, ia able to take a bath, brush bis teeth, sit up and take notice aa never before.

Yet it costs to advertise and adver tising pays, else the circulation of these publications would cease. Of those who voluntarily sign these testimonials, the least that can be said is they are under grave suspi cion, and belong either in the juris diction of the lunacy commission or the postal authorities who take cog nisance of frauds in publication. It is a surprising thing that the shrewd people permit and support so much humbug. Embarrassment of Time-Savers. The running time of the fastest train between New Yoik and Chicago, patronised largely by stockholders, has been reduced from twenty to eighteen hours, making it possible for the broker to follow the nerve-wreck fluotuations in Steel Preferred up to half-past one iustead of having to tear himself away from the ticker a whole hour earlier. Anybody with a (urn for statistics can figure out that we are now saving more time than there ever was before, but nobody seems to know where tbe saved time goee te. The telephone stands on the business man's desk. By aid of this marvelous instrument • man a score of miles away oan call him up at any moment and ask any fool question that conies into his head. The swift—professionally ewift—etenographer sit* at hi* elbow, •• that by merely (peaking be oan take two hundred and fifty word* to *ay something wbieb, if he had to use a goose quill, be would say in twenty, or never say at all and never feel tbe loss. The automobile or swift eleotrio oar take* him to and from bis office. If he walked he would lose two hours a day and a good deal of hie fat and some of bis appetite for highball. Tbe crack liner, with all the luxury and bustle of a first class hotel, carries him across the Atlantio in five days, making it entirely practicable to get get nervous prostration in midocean. One can hardly imagine how men did business at all before they had these time-saving devioes. But they did do it, and had rather more time to spare than the time savers have.—Saturday Evening Post. Doj and Pony Show. When Gozad'a California Dog and Pony ahow appears here, the public will see one of tbe most unique figures in the saw-dust arena. It is that of Prof. C. I. Cosad who has been a train er of animals for over twenty years and who loves his pets as a parent lovee his children. Mr. Cozad said in a recent interesting interview; "Anyone can train animals to per form tricks who will devote the time to it and use a little judgment. It is nonsense to think one must be pos sessed of any special qualification. The whole science of training animals reaolves itself into one thing—that is work and hard work at that. Of course, one must be kind, patient and persevereing. It is slow work at first and one can not see much advance ment in any animal that is being trained in the first few days, some timee weeks. But if trainer contin ues the results will, in most cases, be satisfactory. Never punish an ani mal for the sake of wearing out a whip. Remember the most con temptible thing that walks the earth i* tbe individual that punishes dumb creatures unnecessarily. When an animal doea anything particularly well, show your appreciation by a kind word, a atroke or a caress and occa sionally reward him with a small par tiele of food which the animal likes moat. In our oompany of over three hundred performing pets we have many and different dispositions to eontend with but by sticking closely to the above we have got the animals to enjoy their work as play and it is an interesting thing to watch the vast number of inCelegent things they ac complish. They play all aorts of gamea and act with skill, little dram as and comedies and they are accom plished aorobats and gymnasts." J. D. fiinett bad • lively experience with a runaway team last Saturday. Aa be was getting into the buggy to return to Ritiville, the team itarted, throwing him violently to the ground and dragging him for a abort distanoe, until he gave tbem a free rein, when they tore up First avenue, made the turn up tbe railroad traok and itart ed up tbe road bed at full apeed. Lloyd Stanfield followed them on hia •addle borae for about four mile,, when be wae hemmed in by fencea and obliged to return. The team kept the railroad track, oroaiing bridgee and oulverts, and paaaed through Lamona at full apeed. Tbe only time tbey left tbe track, until tbey were caught a couple of milee above Lamona, waa to turn out for tbe Lamona lection crew. The aurpriae to all waa that no damage waa done to either boraea or buggy eicept a few eplintered spokes and aa aoon aa captured they were im mediately driven back to Odeaaa.
