A special Midsummer Num ber ot Keith's Magazine has just appeared giving the following most interesting contents: II lustrated descriptive article of a Minnetonka summer home; some beautiful pergolas; a building experience in Kansas; suggestions for entrance, with Misleading Information. Labor Commissioner Ander son sent to this office last week what purported to be a list of the surplus products shipped from this county tbe past jear. Just why the taxpayers are re quired to pay for such utterly worthless and unreliable stuff as this, probably the legisla ture alone can tell. Marion county products ate shipped from Maywood, Durham and Ewing, all in Lewis county and of course in Anderson's list Lewis county gets credit for these shipments and also for all products which are shipped from Taylor Station, but billed from Maywood. Marion county products are also largely ship ped from Monroe City and Mon roe county gets the credit. So also does Shelby county get credit for Marion's products shipped from Hunnewell and Sbelbina. The statistics furn ished by the Labor Commission er are absolutely worthless and should be prevented from send ing out matter calculated to mislead. A thing that is worth doing should be well done. Marion County Herald. The Herald has learned what tbe Monroe City Democrat tjld tbe people o years ago. And we have been roasted by John Nolen's friends for doing so after he entered the office. Mr. Nolen is only a sub and not responsible nor is he known in it. While it is true that Monroe City handles large numbers of Marion and Ralls County stock it is also true tbat vnst num bers Monroe Coun y stock finds its outlet at Hunnewell, Sbelbina, Moberly, Center and cattle, horses and mules are driven from South Monroe County to Mexico. It is simply a mental and physical imposibility for tbe Labor Bureau to.even approxi nate conditions. Here is an illustration: There was 125 cars of stock billed by the Katy from this point last vear. when every boot was bought and shipped from Has sard. Often this county is not credited with as much stock and stuff as is shipped from this city alone. Sunflower Philosophy.

Atchison Globe. at some rival of whom he is en vious? What must a man think of himself when be goes off and takes an inventory after hav ing vented bis spite in this way? If there is a man to be pitied it is tbat one who is giving pub lic expression through the col umns of a newspaper to his jealousy and bad spirit. He is like the boy who sits in school and makes faces at some boy he does not like, or be is more like the small terror who barks at the heels of tbe passer-by.
