John Samuels lives in Brown coun ty, Kansas. He is a farmer thirty-five years of age. He came to Kansas from the East in '81. brineine a vounir wife. two children and some : money. The money He invested in 160 acres of land He paid a good price six thousand dol lars, two thousand down and a mort gage back for four thousand. But it was a well-improved farm and worth it. There have been fat and lean years in Kansas, and in 1902 John Samuels still owed three thousand dollars on his place. He had reduced the debt one thousand dollars, an averaee' of one hundred dollars per year, and kept me interest pam up. His expenses in creased with the growth of his family His wife's health was not so good of late, and he paid an occasional doc - tor's bill. Some improvements and extensions must be made on the farm buildings. He , would be fortunate if ne could make these additional neces sary . expenditures, , keep his interest paia up ana continue applying one nunarea dollars per year on the mort gage. . : - He realized at this rate he will be a very old man before the farm will be tree from debt. If he dies the homr will be sold; perhaps at a time when it may bring little, if any, more than me mortgage. The savings of a life time will be lost and the wife and chil dren will suffer. One day a stranger appeared and asked permissjin to exDlain life in surance. Mr. Samuels listened intent ly, conceded It was just what he need ed, that he would like a policy, if he coma pay lor it, but he owed three thousand dollars on his farm, and it was ail ne could do to pay the interest ana a Hundred dollars a year on the principal. As the nremium on a noi icy at his age would be $102.60, he die. nui see now ne could carry it "Suppose," said the atrent "the r son who holds .this mortgage on the farm should say to you: 'If you con tinue to pay the interest as before, but instead of paying one hundred doIJarr a year on the principal. Day me S102.G per year, I will, if you die, cancel th mortgage, giving your wife the farm If you live twenty years, I will releas tne -mortgage, giving the farm to you. You surely would accept such a Droixi sition.Now, Mr. Samuels, continue yajrmg uie interest, Dut instead o: paying one hundred dollars per yea; on tne principal, take a three thou sand dollar policy in the Old T.itu Bankers Life Insurance Company oi Nebraska, which at your age, thirty five, will cost $102.60 each year foi twenty years. If you die, your life in surance will pay the loan and leave your Home free of debt If you live twenty years, your cash settlement, consisting of the smaranteed reserve and estimated surplus will pay the mortgage and leave you $210.45. Ynr have paid out $2,052.00. and have" left $210.45, thus paying a debt of thre inousand. dollars with $1,841.55. oi sixty-two cents on the dollar. havins meanwhile a guarantee that, should you die, the debt is canceled."

Even war is bet ter than peace that can be maintained only by ignorance ' An Associated Dress disDatch is us rally reliable. But, in this instance, mere is certainly a mistaKe some where. Education promote 'war? Im possible! Philippine education foster rebellion? Never! were we not told again and again by President McKin ley that it was only the ignorant Fill pinos who began and continued hostili ties against our sovereignty? Did not thn exeat anil srnnri "MKirtlpv rp-npflt- edly tell us that, just in proportion as American education extended its ben eficent Influence in the benighted Philippine archipelago, the misguided natives would lav down their arrm ana gladly be our loyal subjects? And has not His Accidency, the Rough Rider, freauentlv echoed these assur ances of his noble predecessor? What man in his senses can doubt the truth of statements emanating from sources et such infallibility? Education en courage war in the Philippines? Per ish the thought! But. to be serious. Professor Moses statement is perhaps the most signif- ie ant admission made by any member or the American PhiliDDine olicarchv since that institution was established on the ruins of the PhiliDDine repub lic, and constitutes a striking com mentary on the wisdom of our "ben evolent assimilation.". In his speech of acceptance at Ind ianapolis, August 8, 1900. Mr. Bryan said: 'If we expect to maintain a colonial policy, we shall not find it to our ad ventage to educate the people. The educated Filipinos are now in revolt against us. and the most ignorant ones have, made the least resistance to our demination. If we are to govern them against their consent and give them no voice in determining the taxes which iney must pay, we aare not eaucaie them, lest thev learn to read the Dec laration of Independence and mock us fur our Inconsistency." Education is, indeed, as a rule, an tagonistic to war. But to this rule, as to others, there are exceptions. In telligence resents a master. In pro portion as a man is educated, he rebels against arbitrary control. In the de gree that a people become enlightened, taey chafe under a foreign yoke. Mr. Bryan was right as usual. If we keep the Filipinos in indefinite sub jection, and at tne same tune hinder waceful agitation lor independence. we shall eventually have to send a sol dier with every schoolmaster, unless, indeed, , we pull down the schools themselves. We mav be sure that the emick-witted Filinino students will not be slow in detecting the miserable sophistries by which - we have at tempted to palliate a bloody war of conquest and an autocratic govern ment. Every school we build in their country will but strengthen their nat ural love of justice and stimulate their ambition for self-government. We may not be just enough to grant Philippine independence willinglv. But shall we be foolish enough to con tinue the. same old futile war which despotism has ever waged against lib erty? Fifty years ago there was an "irrepressible conflict" in the United States. There is now an irrepressible conflict in the ' Philippines. The American people will be wise to gov ern themselves accordingly.: JOHN SAMPSON. Washington, D. C. WANTED TRESTER SUPPLY COMPANY, P I pmi . rwA occ ut-'p-ri-iii.s. CATALOGUE FREE. 103 Go. 11th Gt.
