AGAINST SALARY INCREASES Simple Life in the White House Brings Best Results, Sena tor Clay Says. Washington, Jan. AtiHmendmeut id the leitislatlve, executive and judi ciary appropriation bill increasing the salary of the President to 100,. 000, of the Vice I're-ti dent itud Speaker of the House of Representa tives to $20,000, with 5,000 addi tional allowance for carriages und coachmen for the Vice President and Speaker, aud Increases for the judic iary aggregating $:$2tf,500, precipe tated a lively discussion In the Senate. Senator Dorah, of Idaho, who is against the Increases, made a point of order against theru on the ground that they Involve general legislation which, according to the rules of the Senate, cannot be placed on an ap propriation bill in the face of a single objectiou. Without concluding the debate further consideration of the amend ments was postponed until next Monduy. Senator Clay, of Georgia, insisted that he had no feeling against the newly elected President, but he be lieved tho time had come when Con gress' should clear these expendi tures. "If the President were called upon to pay all the expenses," said Mr Clay, "200,000 a year would not be too much." - The PreBldeut, h8 said, should have enough salary to live In digf nity, but he was convinced that sumptuous living would not re dound to the benefit of the country. "The simple life," he said, "plain living and high thlnklug bringpthe beet results." Western Mo. Line Surveyed. Kansas Citv, Mo., Jan.

A Model Ear of Corn. A model ear of corn was recently placed in the corner stone of the new Agriculture Building of the Missouri College of Agriculture at Columbia. The idea was to allow future genera tions who should be living when this building is torn down to see what was considered to be an ideal ear of corn In 1908. The ear was a fine specimen of Raid's YellowJ Dent, al- most cylindrical In shape and with 'perfectly filled butt and tip. The rows were straight, the kernels of good depth and the ear was perfectly solid and compact. The kernels were packed so closely together that no open space was left between the rows or between the kernels in the rows and it was perfect in practically all details, scoring 96 points out of a possible 100. A fine photograph of this ear was preserved showing a side view of the ear and also a view of the butt and tip. The College of Agriculture had printed a large num - ber of copies of this photograph and any one interested In securing these may do so by writing the college of Agriculture at Columbia. The great interest that is being taken In Missouri farmers In better seed corn should be an Incentive to every man to study carefully the various types of ears and the Col lege ot Agriculture will be glad to place tt" I photograph In the hands of any one who should desire It with iWUVMM www .

He comes to Titteburg occa sionally and on his last visit he gave his Pittsburg houBe into a broker's hands to Bell. The broker found a purchaser, a consulting engineer, who offered 125,000. Mr. Rafferty asked 25,00C more, and, at his suggestion a coin was flipped to see which price was to be paid. The engineer lost, and he paid Mr. Rafferty 150,000. Then the broker eentlu his bill for 5,000 Mr. Rafferty considered it heavy, and he suggested to the broker that a coin be flipped to see wheiuer the commission should be 10,000 or nothing. The broker argued that Rafferty couldn't win twice straight runnlntr, so he agreed. He lost, too, and Mr. Rafferty, the possessor of millions, udded 30,000 to his bank account. HOW B.

Wil son of l'latte couuty was speaker of the .Missouri house o! representatives when It tiratz Brown was governor of Missouri. Brown was elected as a Liberal Republican, defeating J. W. McClurg, who was the last Radical Republican ever elected in Missouri. Brown wan elected In 1870 nnd how h' was viewed by the Democrats of that dv in well told in a letter which Mr. Wilson, a life long Demo crat and one time a Democrat mem ber of Congress, wrote to his eon, Francis M. Wilson, a Democratic member of the present Semite. Wll eon is from Platte county. In the afternoon following Governor llad- leys inauguration he received a letter from his father in which tho writer said: "Brown was merely a Republican in name, Liberal Republican. lit Schurz, Blttlnger and others called themselves Liberal Republicans. We adopted hlni as our candidate to de feat McClurg, the regular Republican nominee.

The first foot ball game on record wna in 1891, and Kansas won 22 to 10, and has won ten of the sixteen games since then. A Difference. When Cole Younger was pardoned and embarked In the show business our friends across the Kansm line pointed the finger of scorn at him and wabbled it to Include the whole State of Missouri, says the Clinton Democrat. Only a few weeks ago, Emmet Dalton, the Coffey vllle bank robber, was pardoned by Geo. Hoch, and after a few pious utterances of thankfulness, we find him re-enacting the Coffey vllle raid liefore a mov ing picture camera. Dalton even asked Gov. Hoch to pose in the act of signing his pardon, but the Gov ernor very properly refused. It Is Dalton' Intention to run a moving picture show and reproduce the scenes of his own life. We are chari tably Inclined to an ex criminal seek ing to make a living, but really if this is the best Dalton can do, Murdock on the Canal. THE VALUE OF GOOD ROADS.
