BY MEAD PUBLISHING CO Official Paper (ft City and County A Bolt. The tone of comment of standpat newspapers on the Iowa republican platform leaves no doubt of the regu lars' purpose to vote against progress ive nominees for office. There is like ly to be less secrecy in their course this fall than there was four years ago, when 30,000 of their number voted against Cummins for governor. There is striking similarity in the views expressed by the Sionx City Journal, the Burlington Hawk-Eye, the Cedar Rapids Republican, the Des Moines Capital and other pronouncedly standpat journals. Typical of the ex pressions of all are these extracts, the first from the Cedar Rapids Republic an under the caption "Bolting Official ly Endorsed": Many delegates went home from the republican state convention Wednes dav feeling that, at last, in Iowa, a bolt from the republican party has been officially endorsed. If the two senators have been anything, they have been bolters from the national party. They and their friends do not disguise this fact. Tliey bolted the national administration and the repub lican majority in congress. The ma jority was overwhelming but they suc ceeded in getting the republicans of Iowa to go with them, outside of the national party lines. The name of the republican presi dent of the United States was all but hissed in a republican state conven tion. Senator Cummins spoke nearly an hour and a half and refused to let the name of Taft, the republican pres ident so much as pass his lips. For five minutes the convention insisted that he should name Taft among the republican presidents he was enumer ating. But he stopped with Roosevelt. The climax was carefully worked up and the snub of President Taft was •adroit as well as bold. It was a queer situation in a repub lican state convention. They said it was no longer an insurrection, but a revolution. They have made bolting respectable and republicanism in Iowa is one glorified bolt. It was in vain suggested by some cautious ones that if bolting was officially recognized that it would become the fashion and party ties would no longer bo binding. Even less veiled is the Burlington Hawk-Eye's warning to the insurgents what to expect, under the caption "Absolved": "All republicans in Iowa are now re leased from party fealty. This is offi cial. It was. freely proclaimed from the state convention platform by the Iowa senators and lustily cheered by the insurgent delegates. Insurgency at individual will and independence by local option is the political tenet in Iowa from now on. "The Iowa senators not only pro claimed from the platform their inde pendendence of party ties 'individual independence'—each speaking 'accord- ing to the truth 'as he sees it and ac '-cording to his duty' an he understands it,' and received the seal of approval jby their followers, but they have il Ruminated in their public service what they mean by 'individual independence' ,' and interpret the republican platform ,'as 'they see it' and as the understand it. That interpretation goes to the ex -tent of open, fierce and continued oppo sition to a republican president, to re publican congressional caucuses and the republican national organization. "And that which the republican voter -may think and say and do in his 'indj j. didual independence' of party allegi ance, and still claim to be a republican, ,v the republican newspaper will be en ft--- titled to do. The republican press of Iowa affiliated with the regular nation al organization is released from any real or implied obligation to the party in this stute. This doctrine has been so distinctly, incisively and comprehen sively enunciated at DesMoines and ap proved with loud applause upon tne floor of the convention, illuminated by numerous exanples at Washington, and reiterated in leading insurgent news papers, that no possible ground of just criticism can be placed upon regular republican papers claiming equal privi leges of independence." Far from composing the differences between republicans it is obvious that the convention and the platform ag gravated the differences and that the guerilla warefare of 1910 will be worse than that of 1906. And this because the standpatters will recognize that the election of an insurgent to congress is a rebuke to them and to Tuft, and the insurgents that a standpatter's election is constructive repudiation of Cummins and Dolliver and the whole movement for reform. —Dubuque Tele graph-Herald.

Important In Former Days When Alt British Publications Had to be Entered for Copyright Purposes. London.—Stationers' hall, where Mr. Roosevelt was the guest of the Insti tute of Jouranlisui on his recent visit (o London, was erected in 1671, and in the hall itself are hung the shields on which are painted the arms of the members of the court of assistants. It was customary In bygone times for the freemen of the company on state occasions to carry the shields from Vie hall to Blackfrlars, which Journey was made by way of the river, and then on embarkation the shields were hung over the barge's side. The freemen were clad In long .gowns of light-blue flannel, with yel low facings, being the proper livery color of the company according to its heraldic bearings. The Worshipful Company of Station ers keeps the registers of copyright works from the date of Its Incorpora tion In 1557 until the passing of the copyright act in 1842 the company pos sessed an absolute monopoly, as all printers were obliged to serve an ap prenticeship to a member of the com pany, and every publication, from a Bible to a ballad, was required to be "entered at Stationers' ball." In their interesting collection is a notice of the first translation into English in 1569 of a "boke Intitutled Ewclide." Mention is also made In the register for 1588 of Sir Philip Sid ney's "Acadia," written to please his sister, the countess of Pembroke. There is an entry in 1562 of the follow ing compreheifeive work: "An ab Btracte of the Geneologe and Race of all the Kynges of Englonde from the floude of Noe Unto Brute." As a compliment to Mr. Roosevelt the composing stick used by Benjamin Franklin when working at a case in London and resting upon a pedestal draped with the stars and stripes was placed upon the table immediately in front of him. One of the most notable features of the supper to Mr. Roosevelt at Station ers' hall was the speech of E. T. Cook, a prominent London newspaper man. It was he who retired from the edit orship of the London Daily News be cause, in his judgment, the manage ment sided with the Boers rather than the rBitish in the. late war in South Africa. The speech was full of humoi and friendliness to America and re peatedly stirred the audience tc shouts of laughter and applause. Mr. Cook was scarcely less happy and successful at Stationers' hall than was Lord Curzon at the Sheldonian theater, Oxford. Lord Curzon can be rigid and frigid in his public appear ance. Welcoming and eulogizing Mr. Roosevelt, he was flexible, graceful, ge nial and delightfully eloquent. He spoke without notes and handled his Latin as If he, like the audience and especially the undergraduates, thor oughly appHiclated -joke. GERMANS CUT YANKEE GRAIN Russia Will Furnish Bulk of Product T^ip Year—High Prices Are Not Felt. Berlin.—A great reduction in the Importation of American grain into Germany is predicted by members of the Berlin grain exchange, who de clare that this year the German con sumer is practically independent of the United States as a source of sup ply. Noting the fact that the recent sharp advances in the American mar ket failed to produce any material ef fect on the Herlin exchange, the bourse expert of the Tageblatt says that the reason may be found in the exceptional conditions which enable Germany to rely almost entirely upon other countries. While American wheat has gone up in consequence of the general rise in an commodities, the Russian crops are expected to be large enough to cover the entire Ger man demanrf at lower prices. Hence, adds the writer, the Berlin exchanges are responding more readily to price conditions in Russia than to the fluc tuations in the American markets. Presentiment Halts Hymen. Allentown, Pa.—Through "'otHo'-v premonition, the elopement of Miss Julia Cutler, seventeen years olii, Lansford, and Michael Daniels of this city, was frustrated. The girl came to Allentown some time ago to work, and falling in love with a man ten years her senior, made all arrangements tor her wed ding, even buying her trousseau. The couple had planned to get mar ried the other night. The mother, however, having- some premonition, came on during the day and after rigid cross-.exainination, the daughter divulged her plans. The mother objected violently, and with the aid of a policeman, took the daughter home, trousseau and all. Old Hiding Place Safer.

St. Paul, Minn.—Slowly rising upon the crest of a bill on fashionable Sum mit avenue, St. Puul, Minn., is a $3,000,000 cathedral, the consumma tion of one of the dreams of Archbish op Ireland. Stone by stone and block by block, the great gray granite struc ture is taking form, and when com- pleted will be the most magnificent Catholic cathedral In all America. No house of worship will surpass it, un less it be the Cathedral of St. John the Divine in New York, which is be ing erected by the Episcopalians. The beginning of this cathedral was In the mind of Archbishop Ireland on the evening of Holy Thursday, March 31, 1904. The next day he imparted his Idea to some of his influential friends, and on April 9, following, the Bite was purchased at a cost of $52, 000. Since then Archbishop Ireland has worked continuously for the culmina tion of his plans. In response to. his requests for money, persons in his dio cese have subscribed $1,672,390. Of this sum $415,209.10 has been paid in. Ground for the cathedral was broken In 1906, and the corner stone was laid June 2, 1907. The foundations are completed and material Is arriving for the walls. Four years have been spent in making the foundations for the build ing, and they are calculated to be of sufficient strength and durability to last 10,000 years. The cathedral Itself will be built in the form of a cross, surmounted by a dome and flanked by towers. It will be 274 feet long, 214 feet wide, and the distance from the ground to the top of the cross which will rise over the top most pinnacle will be 280 feet. The great dome will be 120 feet wide, the height of the facade 130 feet, and the height of the towers 150 feet. The building will be constructed of Minne sota white granite and will be Roman in architecture. It is planned to have It finished in three or four years, but -the. arcbitfwt R^.yn that 50-years from now men will still be engaged in "put ting on the finishing touches." When completed It will seat 3,400 persons. There will be 12 chapels on the main floor. Close estimates of its cost and furnishing bring the figures to approximately $3,000,000. Arch bishop Ireland, through his own in fluence, expects to obtain this sum be fore he ceases. ORIGINATOR OF "SUNNY JIM" New York Society Girl Who Drew the Funny Page Character, a Beauty. New York.—Among the leaders of New York's Pour Hundred who are famed as beauties may be mentioned Miss Dorothy Ficken. Vivacious and cultured, her personality charms all who come under its influence. She is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. H. Ed wards Ficken, prominent New York ers. Now that Vice-President Sher man is famed the length and breadth of the country as "Sunny Jim," Miss Ficken is brought into especial promi nence for the simple reason that she is responsible for the original "Sunny Jim," probably the most noted dis peller of the blues who ever appeared on paper. This young society woman is recognized as a clover artist and her work has often been exhibited. Pastures New.

The reunion was brought about by means of a picture show in Minneapo lis last winter, qyhich was attended by [William Larsen and his uncle. The juncle told WiUlam that be saw his (father's spook in a fishing scene In the show. Otlier members of the fam ily were brought and all recognized (Captain Larsen. In telling about it -William Larsen said: "I wrote td the firm In New York ithat made the pictures and learned [that the picture had been taken at Petersburg, Alaska, in September, |1909. So I came west last month and iwent up to Petersburg. There I heard [the old man was down here.

"1 didn't' believe it was Will, at jflrst," said Captain Larsen, who sat on fthe fisherman's sofa on the end of the jChlopeck dock. "I always thought of him as a little shaver. Now I know It's him, and I'm mighty glad he found me. I'm going. to take him out to the banks with me^and teach him to be come a fisherman, instead of having 'him run up to Jdltarod after gold, like he wants to.

Preston, Eng.—Preston has Its "Enoch Arden"—a husband thought to be dead, having just returned to find bis erstwhile wife remarried. John Stevens is the name of the man, and in February last, when a body was found floating in the river, Mrs. Stevens by certain marks on the arm, identified it as that of her hus band, who had been missing. At the close of the inquest the cor oner granted the necessary certifi cates, and Mrs. Stevens duly drew her husband's insurance money. Liter on she married again—a man named HarnesB—and was living hap pily when suddenly recently her real husband returned after nine years' absence. It appears be had been tramping through Wales. He threatens, it is said, to have his wife arrested for bigamy, but consid erable sympathy is expressed for her in her unfortunate position, and the facts have been' reported to the coun ty coroner. Meantime, Harness, the second hus band, who married Mrs. Stevens, be lieving her to be a widow, has left her. "I do hope he comes back to me," she said tearfully. "We have been so happy together." AUTHOR ON- -TOMATO RATIONS Barry Pain, Noted English Humorist, Underwent Poverty Period After Success. London.—Barry Pain, whose ftew "Eliza" stories are to be published shortly, is undoubtedly one of the most popular of living humorists. Aft er leaving Cambridge university, Mr. Pain became a classical tutor at a "crammers while there he sent an article to the Cornhlll called "The Hundred Gates." It was accepted promptly by James Payn, then editor of that periodical, who, furthermore, sent the young author a very kind let ter. The cleverness of this article at tracted the attention of Sir Francis Burnand and Wemyss Reid,' editors of Punch. Mr. Pain's subsequent contri butions to Punch and The Speaker were so successful that he resolved to come to London. Then came "a period of romantic poverty," a period in which he lived on bread and tomatoes and in a la borers dwelling. It was during this time that Mr. Pain received a visit at the laborer's dwelling from the pompous butler of his editor with an' invitation to dinner. Marooned in Bering 8ea. Seattle.

If i. ty American Press Aasr •Matlon.) ITfannert used lie tile ambition of tb snnlso niouey enough that he "u'd afford to move 1 town id spend the rest of days in oui:'ni-|. Now It Is the tin bition of the ili dweller to neciiiui late enough nf iliis world's goods enable him purchase a little pluo in the couutry and grow old lu tin open air. This change Is typical of the change In sentiuieut that has taken place in regard to country life. This change in sentiment is due -In a large measure to a change In country life Itself. At first country life was essentially the life of the pioneer. It was a life 7* mm -'-v A BBTIBBD FARUEB FEEDING BIS PIOB. of hardships, and the reward was only a few of life's necessities. But these hardships developed a class of hardy, virile men who have conquered the American continent and brought it un der man's control. The days of pioneering on the farm are well nigh past. Now that the rough edges are worn ofT the true pleasure of life in the open is beginning to be appreciated. At first people crowded together in the cities for protection, later for convenience In transacting business. The city never was intend ed primarily as a place to. live. In the early days the cities were deserted as soon as the danger which had forced the people together was over. Tbey scattered out to their farms, where they could live In peace and plenty. When the development of the city as a business center began no particu lar provision was made for the home life. People lived where they could, existing for their: business rather than making their business exist for them. ID all the years in which the cities of the United States have been develop ing the home life always has lagged behind. True, some of the men who were most successful in accumulating wealth built palatial homes. But there is no room lq, the city for many such homes. Kather must people live tiered one above another, layer upon layer. On all sides, above und below, the space lu which they are free to move at will is marked by strictljk de fined limits. No wonder that in such circumstances man has longed for a fourth dimension in which be could expand. People have endured tbese conditions because it paid tbera to do so. Busi ness fed and clothed them, but busi ness demanded that they be always close at band. They knew that some where outside the web of paved streets lay an open country, but they knew of no way In which they could make a living there. The stories tbey heard from the country were stories of poor ly paid toll, few pleasures and a pre mature old age. They preferred the discomforts to which they were accus tomed. The coming of electric transportation widened the horizon of the city. It mude it possible for the best paid la borers to have bouses of their own. It allowed the salaried man, who put In fewer hours, to live almost in the country. With a glimpse of suburban and country life and what it really meant to have plenty of room to breathe, the city dweller began to cher ish an ambition. He began to long for nu acre of bis own, with a garden and a few berries and sonie chickens, where be could rest and grow old. The advance In the price of food products made it not only possible, but comparatively easy, for the man who has given the best years of bis life to the city to retire to the coun try. Perhaps I .should not nse tho word retire. The swirling rush of twentieth century life has made tho thought of retiring distasteful. The ambitious man lets go his work with reluctance. He would rather die in the harness tbnn to rust away his re maining days in Idleness. But there comes a time when the strongest man feels bis grip weaken and bis mind falter. The hard knocks of a strenu ous life begin to make themselves felt. The long hours grow weary on his shoulders. Some men are situated so fortunately that tbey can let go by degrees, working as they feel like It and turning over to others the tasks of which they tire. Most men. how ever, must continue to meet the exact ing demands of business to the far thest notch or drop out entirely. It Is te th'em "that the country makes' tts strongest appeal. A hOuse and an acre or more of land can be purchased or rented more cheaply than a house and lot in the city. The home can be supplied with all the conveniences that the family were used to In the city. The trolley and the telephone keep them in touch with their city friends. The city man who Is past the days of the bard work demanded in a mercantile establish mentor a factory can still make a fair living from lie soli. The returns from an even acre or so of ground will go S, .•yi far toward laying tlio rnmnys Hvln expenses. The pleasr re of life in the ope where the rir is pure and there time to drea ir and room to be happ will add yeirs- to the lives of II new made farmer and bis wife. Tt freedom from responsibility calls bn' .the light hearteduuss of youth. The tyranny of office hours Is done away with. The luxury of Independence Is attulned. No sign of the return to the country Is more encournglng'than the tendency of the old farmers and tbelr wives to spend the remainder of their days lu the country. Some of the old farmers who move to town to end tbelr days are satisfied perhaps, but most of them are not. The enforced' idleness galls tbem. Tbe narrow boundaries of a city lot stifle tbem. They miss tbelr old friends and associates. The home farm Is a much better place than the city for the farmer to spend his declining years for many reasons. It Is home to him. and a thousand pleasant memories cling around every knoll and tree. He can turn over to one of the boys the active work of managing the farm and still have most of tbe pleasure of farming without tbe responsibility. It may mean the construction of another house perhaps, bat tbe expense will be less than tbe cost of a bouse in tbe city. There are always little tasks to be done wben be feels like work, yet be can quit when be feels like quitting. When he is not In a mood to work there are always neighbors to visit With bis automobile or his horse and buggy be and his wife can go where and when they please. Thus tbe days pass pleasantly and smooth ly, without a ripple of discontent or tbe strain of getting used to a new environment. The passing years leave few marks on either the farmer or his wife, for this sort of life Is not cal culated to encourage the advance of old age. From tbe standpoint of the commu nity the retired farmers are a valua ble asset A number of sucb families in the community give permanency to Its social life. Wltb little else to do and plenty of time to do It in the farmer and bis wife can go ahead with the management of tbe club or grange. Tbey can devise picnics and suppers and go ahead with lecture courses and celebrations. These things are of incalculable benefit to any community, and yet too often the young farmers are too busy to look after all tbe details connected with tbeul. In looking after tbe business affairs of tbe townsuip and county and state the farmer who it» out of active busi ness finds an outlet 'for bis surplus energies. Township'offices are by no means lucrative. Yet it is essential for tbe good of tbe community that they be filled by men who will take time to see. that the township afTalrs are properly conducted. A farmer who no longer has a business of bis own to demand his best attention is Just the man for such a place. The county supervisors have charge of a great amount of business Upon tbe efficiency of their work depends tbe condition of tbe roadd and bridges. The management of a county is no small Job.^yet it Is too often intrusted to some office seeking politician be cause there is 110 one else who has time for the place. Here is another opportunity for tbe retired farmer. ONE OF A RETIKEL) rARUBB'S SIDE IJIMKS. He has plenty of time to do the work properly and to investigate any mat ters that come up. He Is a substan tial property bolder, and his acts are in tbe line of conservative progres^ and in tbe main al «iys right He takes a more impartial view of things than If be were in active business for himself. Tbe experience of years helps him to govern Justly. For the farmer with more ability and larger ambitions positions in the state legislature are open. Our legis latures are especially in need of more Intelligent farnaers In the lawmakers' seats. These men are unlmpeachably honest and they know bow to strike •n average between ado nothing poli cy and one of reckless extravagance. The country needs men who have lived long enough to gain wisdom and experience. These men need tbe coun try. For the best good of themselves and for the best good of the nation tbey should grow old In the country.
