It was at first reported that the latter had won. The coalition with the Bull Moose pulled the republican judges through. Wayland a Suicide. James A. Wayland, editor of the Appeal to Reason, committed suicide at his home in Girard, Kansas, Sunday night by insert ing a pistol into his mouth and shooting upward into his brain. The suicide left a note which read: “The struggle under the competitive system isn’t worth the effort; let it pass.” Friends of the dead man, however, do not believe that he committed suicide over socialism. It is be lieved by many that the cause of his rashness was due to the fact that his wife was killed in an automobile accident a year ago and that worry over the loss of his wife had made him tempo rarily insane. He leaves three daughters and two sons. Missouri Farmers Defeat Single Tax Amendment. At the recent election in Mis soure the single tax proposition was defeated by 400,000 votes. The single tax idea was made prominent in America by the great Henry George. The idea is to tax land and not the im provements. For instance a lab oring man may have a $1,500 residence on a SI,OOO lot and the millionaire have a $15,000 resi dence on a SI,OOO lot and both pay the same tax. Also in the cities a man migrht have a vacant lot worth $25,000 and the next lot to him have a building on it costing $1,000,000 and the build ing would be exempt from taxation. One of the arguments ii the single tax advocates is that it would encourage a man with & vacant lot to make im provements. Missouri farmers were solidly against the proposi tion.

Herb Frank d. H. F. Saunders r. The True Friend. You are mistaken my brother if you think I am going to trade off any of my tried and true friends for new ones of an un known quality. That friend who has stood staunch is the friend for me. I mean the fellow, who when the road was muddy and load was heavy, reached out his hand and gave me a lift and help ed me back onto firm ground. I mean the fellow who came around when the wolf was sitting out in my front yard and howling his head off—the fellow who smiled and said he had a few dollars that he believed would do me more good than they would him. I mean the one who, when evil tongues were spreading poison and false reports were sapping my reputa tion and my business, who stood forth and said he didn’t believe them and could lick the man who said they were so. That the friend I mean, not the one who rode with m e when prosperity was driving and when adversity began to moan about me, forsook me for fairer fields, So don’t come to me and tell me I could help myself bv dumping them I am not looking for that kind of a market. LAND OF OUR FOREFATHERS Edward Evaratt’a Tribute to England aa the Cradle and Refuge of Free Principles. For myself I can truly aay that after my native land 1 feel a tender ness and a reverence for that of my fathers. The pride I take In my own country makes me respect that from which we are sprung. The sound of my native language beyond the sea Is a music to my ears beyond the rich est strains of Tuscan softness or Cas tilian majesty. I am not—l need not say I am not— the panegyrist of England. I am not dazzled by her riches nor awed by her power. The scepter, the miter and the coronet, stars, garters and rib bons seem to me poor things for great men to contend for. But England Is the cradle and the refuge of free principles, though often persecuted; the school of religious liberty, the more precious for the struggles through which it has passed; she holds the tombs of those who have reflected honor on all who speak the English tongue; she is the birthplace of our fathers, the home of the Pil grims; It Is these which 1 love and venerate in England. I should feel ashamed of an enthu siasm tor Italy and Greece did I not also feel it for a land like this. In an American it would seem to be de generate and ungrateful to hang with passion upon the traces of Homer and Virgil and follow without emotion the nearer and plainer footsteps of Shakespeare and Milton. I should think him cold In love for his natlvo land who felt no melting In his heart for that other native country which holds the ashes of his forefathers.— Edward Everett. Heavy Coal Producers. The concentration of the anthracite Industry of Pennsylvania Into strong and relatively few units la shown by the fact that in 1911 nearly 75 per cent of the mines were producers of more than 100,000 tons each and that all but 3 per cent, of the total produc tion was from this gdoup of mines.
