Why Not Use It For Education?
The Missouri University paid
Roper, her football coach, $5,000
for one season's work. On that
sort of basis it would seem possible

To Steal the People's Money.
The navy department has made
a gun that is so large it is afraid to
mount it. It is afraid it will tilt the
ship to one side. It will cost two
thousand dollars to shoot it off.
How is that for a free country and
a pipe line to the people's money?

A Different Brand Needed.
Another charge brought against
the Democratic rfflce-holders by our
wise (and otherwise) Governor is
that they have heavily increased !
the state's expenses. Does the Gov-
ernor think the state is standing :
still? If not, what better proof j
wouia ne want tnat we are advanc-
ing than increased expenses for j
maintenance? As long as the state '
is progressing we can look with sat

will have to put forth a different

special election was heia in the
Sixth District, the Rich Hill, Mo.,
Review, a leading Democratic paper
of the Sixth District, says: j
"Mr. Reed spoke in nearly every ;
county in the Sixth Congressional
District in the late campaign, and
and in several of the counties made
two or three speeches. He was
greeted everywhere by large crowds.
and his speeches were received
with great interest and enthnsiasm. '
"Other able Democratic speakers
were in the district, and contributed

achieved, but it can be truthfully j
and not boastingly said that Reed's
speeches in the recent campaign
were the most impressive and ef
fective ever heard in any campaign
in the state, especially his logical
and forceful presentation of the
Democratic position on the tariff
question and his powerful arraign-
ment of Republicanism as repre-
sented by the robbery of the con
suming masses under the Payne
Aldrich tariff law and the legisla
tive tyranny of Cannonism."

Why Clover Helps Soils.
Champaign county, Illinois,
correspondent writes: "Is it a fact
j that clover removes from the
Ground more nitrogen and ohosDho-
rus than- most any other cJod? If
that is a fact, how is that clover
god In thtf richest ground that we
have? " . r t
This &' a case where we -can eat
0ur cake and have it, too. ' True, a
; crop of clover will remove from the
: soil much more of both nitrogen
and phosphorus than almost any
crop, but the acquisitions of these
elements through growth of roots.
shedding of leaves, with the
lions of nodules on the clover roots
at work gathering nitrogen from
the air, all tend to fix more of these
elements than have been removed
by the crop. Because of just these
things it is Desc to always get
heavy growth ol clover roots as
possible before the sod is turned;
ana fr this reason the roots of a
seed crop of clover are much more
valuable than the roots of a hay
crop. L. C. Brown,

Coming so close upon the hang

Jackson told last night that he

The Human Brain Has Been
How can the surgeon determine
just where to saw open the skull in
trephining? In most cases of brain
pressure no exterior indication upon
the skull exists. The operation is
necessarily a delicate one and in
definite exploration is not to be
thought of. says The Designer for I

time must be lost. How does the :
j Vivisection has given the answer !
in a most interesting operation I
; which made possible a chart or map I
! of the brain. Ortoinallv a monk I
was placed under an anaesthetic,
and the cap of the skull removed,
exposing the living brain. A chart
of it was made and divided into
squares one-twelfth of an inch wide
Electricity was then applied to the
brain on each square as indicated
by the chart, and resulting muscular
movements all over the body were
noted and tabulated. Later on,
more perfect maps were made from
human brains undergoing opera
tions, with no injury to the patient
and no loss of life. Like the maps
of a state, island or bay these maps
are now permanent.
