'Why Some Men are Idle.

About every week or no there
are labor meetings (so called) in
various cities, which are taken ad
vantage »t by socialistic orators
to assert that capital is getting into
the bands oi the tew, and that the
many :ire suffering in consequence
In justice to the legitimate labor
unions it should be explained that
they do not indmae this kind ot
talk, and that wherever the speak
er vents bii nihilistic or socialistic
opinions it is without the consent
of the honest working i »ople.
Still, there are in cities, Chicago1
especially, a numb r ot societies
that an* wnquestionuhl \ oa the
dynamite order, and when they
meet, is with tin* nvowd purpose
of showing, they claim, the dit
ference between capital and labor
Not long ago there was a meeting
ihere in which one < t the orators
annon ce<t that there were oU.OUO
men in ttiai niiy seeking work awl
Unable to find it. Some ot these
orators wisti the city to set these
men mi iviii h electing the streets,
and to pay there fair wages tor
their labor. Other “orators”
availed themselves ot the oppor
tu ily to aseml the tyrant capita
lists are to blame for the presenc*
ot so many idle men. The Clin age

correctness ot the assertion that

lime in taking a eaneiig ofthe miem-1
ployed. The delegates, however,]
did not seem to take kindly to the
suggeston. Those who are so j
fond ot denouncing capitalists
should point out, if they can, why
the employers ot labor in Chicago
or any other city are morally
hound to find work at high wages
and short hours for unemfdoyed

their services.

Patronized the Papers.
It is said that Senator Plumb
subscribed for every paper in Kan
sas, and there are about 500 of them,
and that he devoted about two hours
every forenoon to reading them
He was once quoted assaying:
“I believe in the local newspa
pers. They are the leaders, the
makers of public sentiment. They
are nearer to the people than any
other papers. The editors mingle
with the people, and consciously
or unconsciously reflect the views
of their readers. By my private
letters from all parts of the State,
and by reading the local papers I
can tell just what the people ot
Kansas are thinking and talking
about. 1 can feel the pulse of the
people and take their temperature.
I am amazed, too, at the excelence
of our country papers. The major

against any subject, although it may
be our hobby. The reason that
science is in its infancy today is
due to the fact that one physicist
after another has accepted the pet
theme of somebody, because he way.
looked upon as a great man. This
is not to be construed as casting a
reflection upon any of those who
were considered as great scient ists,
because we recognize the fact that
j-onto person had to begin at the
h >tInm that others might be able to
climb higher, but it seems to us that
there were too many who tried to
vi-Hfv the asset ;ons ot their prede
cessors instead ot digging down in
search of the golden truth and
bringing to light that which has
been mi long hidden.
The wave-theory, as we have
stated, was insti!uted by Pythagoras
and stood tor 2,500 years without
being called in question. This the
ory claims that sound is transmitted
through all solids, liquids and gass
es by air waves, and that such
waves are composed of condensa
tions and rarefactions, the condensa'
tions producing heat and the rare
factions producing cold.
The corpuscular theory appeared
about fifteen years ago. It was
shown by this theory that wave
transmission of sound could not be.
[This theorv is based upon the snp
[ position that sound is the crea;.b r.*
I of substar.tial atomic emission-.
' which are sent off with such loree
| that they can permeate all sabatan

There is, also, a theory which
; recognizes a “gelatinous luminif.- r
! ous ether” as the transmilor of
sound. This view .is set forth hv
Prof. Tyndall the oldest and most
| popular exponent of the wm e then

We believe that we can show
wherein the above theories are
wrong. After much study and dr
liberation wo have reached a con

with the above theories, we propose
to give our hypothesis to the public
and ask all who will follow ns can

an< giro them your unprejudiced
thoughts, because the conclusions
which we will submit to you were
taken only after we had gfven them

In order to make all points plain

Like a Novel.
A story of real life which has no
parallel in the stories of fiction in
told by the newspapers this week
ol a fellow finding his long lost
lover in Chicago last Saturday.
John C. Williams, a young Tenne
sean, who was visiting in Chicago,
while passing along one ot tha
pi ineipal of streets this great city,
discovered the prostrate form of a
woman lying on a fashionable flat.
It was very cold and the March wind
came from the lake like a jig saw.
The pitiful no an of the yo'u,,g ladr
attracted 1 he young man’s attention,
ami he stopped and inquired what
\ as the matter. No answer was
given. Thinking that she was ill
anti had fallen in faint, he took her
in his arms arid carried her to th#
j next, door where a restaurant is
j kept. He gently placed her on a
j lougne and removed the viel from
her face. Then he fell in a faint
on the floor. His fail a'tructed ths
attention of'the proprietor and a
j dozen waiters. A doctor was sent
j tor, but bet re the physician arri
| \ ed Williams had regained his
j senses and ordered that wine he
given the woman. The phyaciufi
and a drug clerk soon put m an
appearenee and took in it.e situa
tion at a glance.
The young woman had taken
morphine with suicidal intent.
Antidotes and & stomach pump
were promply applied, and in
course of an hour or two she had
regained consciousness. i'heu
there was another scene. Si arrely
had she opened her eyes when she
recognized Williams and threw her
] arms around his ru-ck.
After this scene -vas over, young
i Williams told his »!. ,'V. Ho yam:
