The Editor. Who chases down some ftgreat idea" And molds, on subjects far and near, The nation's thought? Who writes of "truth" with grave in , tent, -And tells it, too, with honest bent Save where his circulation's meant? ... The Editor. Who thinks bis pencil small and round Can turn the planet upside down Like lever strong? Who claims that he "has come to stay," And with some new plan tires away And "saves the cpuntry" every day? t The Editor. Who with profanity defines All critics' views as "senile whines Of reptile sheets?". Who writes in leaded lines that burn Of "party claims" and "duty stern," And bids the bolters all return? x " The Editor. Who pulls his coat off in the fight For "justice, liberty and right," , And Sunday ball? Who nails the "robber" tariff billf And shouts "more money" with a will, Yet fails bis flabby purse to fill? J The Editor. Who is it that to live must glean, And in the market place is seen .: With one suspender? Whose pockets are with due-bills rammed? Whose trousers thin with patches jammed? . t Whoso socks are darned till they are "damned?" The Editor's. And yet, 0 girls, I'd have you know lie makes the nicest kind of beau.

She gladly contributed to the . various causes and loved the un converted, endeavoring to lead them to the "Lamb of of God that taketb away the sins of the world." As the sun in its brightness is by day, so was the life of this devoted Christian and gentle mother. For in her heart there was but the kindest and tenderest feeling for all and the highest regard for their happiness. Into her home she wcl corned the weary way-worn, traveler, as well as those blest with prosperity. We could speak at length upon the virtues of this noble woman of God and then could only mention but few of the many good . deeds she did, but this we can say, lives were cheered, hearts glad dened, and the world bettered by her glorious life. No woman in the com munity was better loved and4 none would be missed more than she. The writer has been her pastor for almost two years and is grieved to know that she cannot meet with us again at the earthly sanctuary, but is rejoiced to know that' we shall meet at the "Great White Throne," where Jesus is and where no sorrow will ever come.

' We sorrow to loose this good woman from our presence but God knows best and may we see it thus. To the children who are thus bereaved, the writer extends bis pro foundest sympathy and urges that you live as the one who has departed lived so mat nnaiiy, wuen Jesus comes in bis glory, we may all "be caught up to meet bim in the air, " and be carried home to sorrow no more. May God bless and comfort the much grieved family. ). L. Sturois Martin, Tenn. TEXT BOOKS ADOPTED FOR HIGH SCHOOL USE Pr ices Than Uniformly Lower Under Old System Nashville, Tenn., June 27.

For Makes Declaration With Emphasis , to Visiting Delegation. Washington, June 27. Speaker Clark to-day emphatically told a delegation of women from the National American Woman's Suffrage Association that woman suffrage is as inevitable as the rising of to-morrow's sun." Fof'one thousand years," said the speaker, men have been trying to run the world and some think that the v have made a bad mess of it. I hope that when you women run it you'll im prove on it. I think woman suffrage is inevitable. '' The only question you have to consider is how to most expedi ttously get what you are after. You can get it quicker by the States than by Congress. . ; - t . " , T "In some places there is a great preju dice against woman euffrage. You want to remember one thing, that if you lose the fight you are out for years. When ever the subject comes up for a vote in Missouri I am going to vote for woman uffrage. This is not because all women ire fitted to vote, and I may add 'that I would not like to say that all men are fitted to vote. If you ever do vote, and I think it is coming certainly, I hope you will vote for the best principles and the best men. '.. ' . 300 I'ETITIONS PRESENTED. The speaker was addressing a group of women from thirty-eight States who had presented 300 petitions for woman suffrage in, the form of resolutions adopted by suffrage organizations and rpass meetings at the time of the nation wide demonstration of May 2. There were present tJongressraen'dttlo"- crats, Republicans and Progressives, to whom petitions were also addressod. These included Representatives Smith of New York, Taylor of Colorado. Baker of Calfornia, Fitzhenry. O'Hair and Foster, of Illinois, Democrats; Mondell of Wyoming, Campbell ,of Kansas, Republicans; Chandler of New York, .Walter of Pennsylvania, Bryan of Washington, Progressives. The woman suffrage leaders in the delegation included Dr. Anna Howard Shaw, Miss Jane Addams and Mrs. An toinette Funk, of Chicago; Mrs. Helen A. Gardener, Mrs. Glenna Smith Tin- nin and Mrs. Baymond B. Morgan, of Washington. Marshall's reception. Vice-President Marshall also received the suffragettes and later petitions to Senators were left at the vice-president's office. The suffragists requested that all be laid before Congress before July8. The petitions, which the committee-explained were strictly non-partisan, asked Con gress for legislation which will "insure women equal political rights with men" but did not advocate adoption of any particular pending measure. The suffrage association officers particularly emphasized that point and said they wished it clearly understood that they were opposed to militant methods and were not fighting any party but are seeking aid for the suffrage cause from individuals of very political faith. . . When the Senate met, numerous pe titions presented by the suffrage dele gations were filed by Senators 8moot. Lewis, Oliver, Catron, Townsend, Hoke Smith, Bristow and Lippitt. -A.W.B iggs Passes Away. Attorney Albert W.
