SENATOR BAILEY ENDS NOTABLE CAREER
The retirepent of Joseph W. Bai
ley of Texas from the United States
senate marks the close of one of the II
most remarkable political careers in
the history of congress. For more
than twenty-three years Senator Hal
ley has served his party in the halls
ef the lower and upper houses.
Espousing the cause of Democracy
he entered congress as a representa
tive from the Fifth Texas district.
while only twenty-seven years old.
In the senate he took the lead in
almost every debate, was always an
effective speaker and was one of the
most praised and maligned Democrats
In that body.
Senator Bailey served in the fifty.
second, fifty-third, fiftty-fourth and
fifty-sixth congresses. He aligned
himself with the Bryan free tliver
policy early In his congressional ca
reer. Despite the fact that he had
risen in the ranks of the lower house
to a strong position of leadership he
was severely criticised by the Populists of Texas and after the national con
vention of 1896 he announced that he would not again be a congressional
Mr. Bailey did not quit politics, however. Indeed his refusal of the con
gressional candidacy was regarded as one of the shrewdest moves of his
political career. It brought him prominently before the people of his home
state with 'hom he was a prime favorite and in a measure forced his elec
tlon as United States senator.
This election was made in 1901. At the expiration of this term he was
re-elected to that body, his term expiring March 4, 1913.
CZAR OF RUSSIA IS THE RICHEST MAN
' "Czar Nicholas rules over the larg
est empire on the globe; he draws the
. ggest salary of any ruler; he is
the richest man in the world," said
a well-known Russian the other day.
"Those are three things which Amer
Ica with all its 'biggest' cannot,
equal." he added.
Well-informed Russians say the
czar is wealthier than Rockefeller,
Morgan, Carnegie or any one of the
Rothschilds. Attention has been
drawn to his vast wealth by the re
cent death of Count Dendrikoff, his
"man of affairs."
Just how wealthy the "Little
Father" of all the Russians is no one
seems to know. It is doubtful wheth
er he himself could come as near
telling what his balance is as perhaps
, the Standard Oil trust king could
name his. The bookkeeping in the
domain of the oil king is more sclen.
tice than among the Russians.
It is estimated, however, that the
eaer's Income. Including his salary and profits and dividends from his vast
property, Is about 37% million dollars a year-$3.125.000 a month, or $104,166
and a few odd cents a day.
STo begin with, his salary for ruling the Russians Is approximately 8%
million dollars a year as fixed by the "civil list" Out of this he gives about
emo million dollars In subsidies to operas, theaters and academies, and dl
ves one-half to one million dollars between the grand dukes and grsnd
dehesses. His mother, the dowager empress, and his wife, the czarina, are
ld to receive from him each $125.000 annually for "pln money." From the
time of their birth he is also reported to have set aside $50,000 yearly for
each of his four daughters. Intobis son's savings bank he puts $100,000

MUCH BENEFIT TO FARMERS *

Farmers may learn something from
the experience of other business
Many manufacturers have not capital tl
enough to run their business, and it
is common for them to make an agree- h
went with a commission merchant
by which he loans money to the man- r
ufacturer, receives the manufactured t
goods on consignment, sells them.
and out of the proceeds repays the bi
loan, and turns the balance over to he
the manufacturer. The commission
merchant employs a competent per- 1
son to watch the process of manufac- t
ture to see that it is done to the best hi
advantage. Experience shows that w
this arrangement is advantageous to
both parties. Improvements suggest
ed by the merchant's agent are often
a great benefit to the manufacturer,
writes Everett P. Wheeler in the Ru
ral New Yorker. His goods are sold oF
to much better advantage than he
could sell them himself, and he gets a
the capital which he needs.
It seems to me that a similar ar
rangement could be worked out by a
group of farmers in any county. Ifi
they would club together, get in touch
with some of the commission mer
chants who make a business of selling o
farm products, they could make an
agreement by which money should be t
advanced upon their crops, and these th
crops should be consigned for sale
to the commission merchant. Agree
ments could be made for lower freight
rates, if the farm products were
shipped by the carload.
Of course the success of such a w
Ibusiness would depend entirely upon ra
the efficiency and good faith of those de
engaged in it. But this is true of ev- at
ery business. There are many com- pr

ness well and honeStly. Every farmer fe
who has had experience knows who KU
