A constituent of visiting the state capitol a few days since, was talking to his repre sentative. "I suppose life in Jefferson City is much more interesting than dovvii L-ome, he ventured to query. "Oh, yes, the Representative admitted. "Hut it costs a BOOd deal more?" "Hat her more, yes." "The salary la better though. ' "Oh, yes, considerable.'' "You meet very different people I suppose.' "Decidedly." ''Much bigger men than with us." "Decidedly, or they wouldn't get here." "Men of wider scope on all q uestions. " "Yes, they have to be." "After all do you think them much abler men than those at home. " "Well, I should say they were he said emphatically. By Jove there isn't a man at home I can't beat playing poker. Hut here, well. I've got (to send my salary home to my wife or I couldn't keep a blamed cent of it " SOME BRIGHT JEWELS Explanation. A letter commending the Re tireing i'astor of Grace Baptist Church was written by the Church Clerk and: "Resolved, that a Copy of This Letter of Commendation be sent to the Papers, a Copy he spread on our minutes and a copy sent to our Brother Riffe. Signed I. P. "Wood Church Clerk." As a copy of the resolution or letter of commendation was not Bent to this office, it very nat urally did not appear in the last issue of the DEMOCRAT nor in this. Set this down I in your day book. If any church or denom ination is not represented in the church column, it is the fault of that church, not of this paper. Prayer Aids Litigation. Topeka, Kan., Jan. 15 Churches in various parts of Kansas have lately held prayer meetings In connection with two cases in Judge Ba sen's court here. One case was to prohibit the reading of the Bible in public schools. The other was to prohibit Sunday theaters, Judge Hazen decided that boards of education could order the Bible read in schools. He decided also that the law prohibiting Sunday perform aocea at the theater is void. Entertained. Mrs. W. L. Reid entertained the Young Ladies Whist Cluo Wednesday afternoon in honor of her friend, Miss Irene Bodine one of the belles of Paris. As the enticeing and elusive game was whist, hearts was trumps because their hearts were in it. During the afternoon refresh ments were served. It maybe true, "the way to a mans heart is through his stomach'' and it may equally be true: The waj to a pretty girls heart is through whist and, well, through refreshments. Reactionary Politics. Says The Philadelphia Rec ord : Southern loyalty to the led- eral government was not cre ated by the Spanish war, but it was demonstrated by that war to people of the uorth who could not shake off the recollections and inherited prejudices of the civ'l war. The president be longs to a generation that has come oti the stage since that conflict, and is identtcal with the war in which the north and south fought together.. The conditions of the present ad ministration were remarkably favorable for the development of the new nationalism. But this has been largely or wholly sacrificed for the sake of ap pointing a few colored people to federal offices in the south. The president could have rec ognized the citizenship of the colored people in other " ways and have benefited his party and his country at the same time. J. S.

"Ef you please, suh," said the colored citizen to the law yer, "I vvaut erbout two dallars wuth er freedom." " What do you mean by two dollars worth of freedom?''

"Dat's it, suh full freedom papers!" "That,'' explained the lawyer, "will cost you in the neighbor hood of fifty dollars." "En ter think," the colored citizen muttered, as he walked sadly away, "hit only cost me one dollar fer a license ter get inter trouble, en dey charge me intrust ou it ter git out!"

Will some cue please explain why, a ci,ty ordinance that says: You must build side walks, you must keep your side walks in repair, is, or can be enforced and an ordinance pass ed by the same council which says: You must keep the ice and snow off of your side wa'ks, is not enforced.' There is not much incentive for a man to clean or pay for the cleaning of his walks, if his neighbor does not or will not clean his. Why? Hecause the man with the clean sidewalk has to slip along or wade through the uncleaned walk of his neighbor. If wid ows can clean their walks, surely men can clean theirs. The Great Southwest.
