Iheetlort to secure a banker Walsh brings out the fact that big bankers do not so serious ly condem him for acts but rather regret his being caught and punish ed. With them it appears as if his illegal acts were monumental enough to take him beyond the law This is the serious trouble with the big money men of this day. If big enterprizes can be carried to suc cess these bankers conclude the end justifies the means and illegal meth ods therefore are justifiable. In the light of sentiment it is hard for a man of Walsh's ability to have to die in prison but if he gets no more sympathy than he is willing to ac cord Bryan in his Chicago paper, because they differed on monetary matters and also on honest methods Mr. Walsh could stay in jail a long time. Probably the only reasonable excuse for releasing him is that the other bankers of "his class" as Murray Carleton said, are not in the same durance vile. On this ground, and this alone, he ought to be released. Moberly Democrat. i . , . Ac.

A correspondent of the Kansas City Star, signing himself "Country Missourian," proves that bad roads are a tax. He says: From examination of statistics in the United States Office of Pub lic Roads it appears that in com munities where there there are or dinary, urjimproved roads the cost to the farmers along these is 76 cents per acre each year greater than to the farmers in districts where are modern improved roads such as rock roads.

We know that they are the potent friends and helpers of our homes, and that as they make our children so shall future years see them. Grant them an abiding conscious ness that they are co-workers with thee, thou great teacher of human ity, and that thou hast charged them with the holy duty of bring ing forth from the budding life of the young the mysterious stories , of character and ability which thou hast hidden in them. Teach them to reverance the young lives, clean and plastic, which have newly come from thee, and to realize that gen erations still unborn shall rue their sloth or rise to higher levels through their wisdom and faithfulness. Gird them for their task with a double measure of thy patience and tran quility, with a great fatherly and motherly love for the young, and with special tenderness for the backward and afflicted. Save them from physical exhaustion, from loneliness and discouragement, from the numbness of routine, and from all bitterness of heart.
