All over the country yellow newspapers which a few years ago enjoyed large circulations, are going to pieces, and the same, reliable paper is now the only kied that is increasing in circulation and prestige. Such a result was inevitable. The public for a time might be attracted by the novelty of large headlines and fake stories,, but itn time it must find out that a font of job type in a headline, . indicates no enterprise and generally a lack of news to run beneath it, and that a paper crowded with deliberate falsehoods, is apt to be short of actual news. It does not - take long to give the public all it wanted in yellow joural. ism. Now that style of newspaper is on the 'wane. The American people, diapite opinions to the contrary, want a newspaper that is clean, reliable and honest. A STRAY WIRELESS MESSAGE. A peculiar phenomena occurred in New Orleans some ays ago which indicates the remarkable length which reless messages may travel. On the roof of the tall yscraper of the Hibernia & Trust Co., is erected an ap aratus for sending and receiving wireless messages to Galveston, Key West, Tampa, Mobile and eventually to Panama. The operator in charge was startled with a faint message, which he Anally deciphered to be one from some vessel far off in the ocean and presumably in the North Atlantic, for it told of encountering and then being in a great snow storm. The message was intended, evidently for New York, but the sound waves, traveling through space, were caught by the sensitive receiver of the New Orleans station fairly intelligably. Whether or not the message was wholly deflected from its true course has not been discovered. YOUR LITTLE AMOUhT HELPS. A person who pays one dollar for a year's subscription to a weekly newspaper rarely, if ever, stops to consider what goes into the making of his purchase. Some of them do realize the fact that they are getting more for their money than they could out of any other investment, but they are few and far between. The coming of the home paper is usually looked to with eagerness. If it fails to come the publisher is straight-way condemned for neglect of his subscribers. It should appear to the reason of every one that a publisher is not going to neglect a single one of his patrons intentionally. His success, should he be successful, is based on the readers of his publication, and it is one of the laws of nature that every man looks after his own interest. He would not work 10 hours in the mechaaioal department of his sanctum and then work a few hours more while the rest of the people are asleep if he did not have some interest in his subscribers. In short you 1t the fruits of this man's labors and hundreds of ohbes who are co-operating with him for one dollar a yoas. GIVE ME BACK THE DEAR OLD DAYS. (Dedicated to Uncle Jimmie Day.) Gimme back the dear old days-all the boys in line "Boy stood on the burnin' deck," an' Bingen on the Rhine!" "Twas midnight: in his guarded tent"--we spoke it high and low, While Mary trotted out that lamb "whose fleece was white as snow." Gimme back the dear old days that Memory loves to keep, While "Pilot, 'tis a fearful night-there's danger on the deep!" The old-time awkward gestures-thejerkmeantfor abow We said that "Curfew should not ring," but Lard its ringing now' Gimme back the dear old days-the pathway through the dells, To the school house in the blossoms: the sound of far off bells, Tinklin' kerost the meadows: the song of the birds an' brook; The old-time dictionary, an'"the blue-back speilin'book! Gone, like a dream, forever!-A 'city's bid the place Where stood the ol' log school house; an' no familiar face Is smiling there in welcome'beneath a mornia' -ky There's a bridge acrost the'rivet' an' we've 'erossed an' said "Good-bye!' MORE TULANECgHOfiRSHIPS. The growth and expansion of Tulane Universiby, Loaisi ana's great educational institution, has been very marked during recent years, and the 'number of free. seholarobips has been increased to 116 out of a-total AcademicSchelar ship of 238. In order to provide more adequately for The expense of these free scholardhips, which are distributed all over the state, a fund is 'being paised in New'Orleans, and other sections of Louisiana. Friends of Tulane claim that a fund of $15,000 a year, a portion of whiCh'has al ready been secured, would remove the necessity for-the annual struggle to make ends.meet, and would 'thereby benefit the institution immensely. Public spirited men of New Orleans are taking great i~ terest in the movement: and leading men in the parishes are doing likewise. Tulane Alumni are taking active charge of the campaign. ONE ON THE FANMERS. It is now reported that Texas has come to the front with another refreshing Lone Star proposition, which in one respect, looks very much like a joke on the farming and dairy interests in the entire South, and it is no less than a plan for the use of cotton seed oil as an oleomar gerine, for butter. The proposition also has a strong potitical significance in as much as it was the agriculturea influence which brought about adverse national and state legislation toward the use of the oleomargerines in butter, and the joke on the farmer lies in the fact that this legisla tion now deprives him of a substantial revenue, as it pro hibits him from using for sale a product which he himself raises and which touches a by-product of the South's greatest staple. After miny tests and experiments it has been found that cotton seed oil may be used as a harmless mixture to butter and those states which have no prohiba tive laws will reap the first benefits of the new process. The matter has been a subject of much talk among cotton raisers in Texas and in other parts of the south where it is known but, while the cotton grower may use his own cotton seed oil in butter intended for his own consumption, he is debarred from converting it into a remunerative commercial product by the laws which he himself created. Whether or not this fact will have any effect upon reverse legislation is a matter wholly of speculation, but as it now stands the farmer is compelled to submit to a deprivation of revenue and cannot use one of his most easily obtained products to his enhanced pecuniary advantage. Foreign railroad men, says a New York paper, profess to be astonished at America's beautiful trains. SThey might be more astonished if they were caught in one of America's elegant railroad wrecks.
