That was a very commonsense ruling which was made by Judge Shelton in circuit court at Warren ton a few days ago. A young man named Church was on trial for the murder of his foster par ents. A lawyer for the defense tried to disqualify a juror because the man ad mitted that he had read a newspayer ac count of the crime. Judge Shelton ruled that this was not a sufficient disqualifi cation, and gave the objecting lawyer and all others present in the court room to understand that a man who does not read the papers is not fit for jury duty. There are some things in the old world from which America should draw in struction and wisdom. Franca has the best roads on earth, divided into four classes: First, national; second, depart mental; third, military, and fourth.com munal. National roads are built and kept up by the national treasury; de partmental roads are a charge upon the departments through which they pass; the military roads are usually kept up by the government, but sometimes the govroment is aided in this work by the departments through which the roads pass; the communal roads, like our civil district and township roads, are kept up by the communea.but even these receive assistance from the government when they pass through thinly populated re gions. The national roads are paved like a street and have an average width of 52)4 feet. The department roads are 30 feet wide and the other roads vary in width. Not less than 7 million dollars is annually expended by the French government in making new roads and repairing old ones. This work gives em ployment to 35,000 persons, and the total length of the roads iB something over 350,000 miles. The roads are so well constructed that one single man can keep 10 miles in repair if furnished with piles of broken stone, placed at intervals along the road, and a cart for distribut ing the stone. Every rut and hole, as fast as made, is filled. It may surprise a good many of the younger American citizens to learn that tbere was a Davis and Parker presiden tial ticket in this country 32 years be fore the present reverse combination ap peared, la 1872 David Davis, of 111 -nois, was nominated for president by what was called the Labor R-forra party, wr ich held its convention in Cc-1 lum'ous, O. His running mate was Gov ernor Joel Phrker, of Counecticut. That was the year when the Democratic national convention iai.ed to formulate a platform of its own, but adopted the platform of the Liberal Republican-and chose as it presidential candidate Horce Greeley. It is a mighty hard thing to make the voters believe that a President who has been entirely safe for three years will bo unsafe h year hence or four years hence. President Roosevelt may have caused some misgivings indeed, he did cause them when he went into office, for he was regarded as rather young, as in clined to be impulsive and as possessing a zeal that might affect his judgment. But Mr. Roosevelt has never justified tho-e fcars. He has been progressive, positive aud often quick to act: but he ! has never done a dangerous thing; he has never jeopardized the gocd name or the fafety of the republic. On the con trary he has given a conspicuously strong administration stranger in the direction of civic righteousness than any other administration 6ince that of Lin coln. Responsibilities have sobered him, have given him poise, and have matured hs judgment. He should be safer with such a record behind him than a man who has had no experience in the Presidential office. Senator Lodge's confidence as to the election of Roosevelt is well based, for he declares that he finds no Republicans who are for Parker and Davis, whereas he finds many Democrats who are for Roosevelt, more especially among the younger voters. Outside of the Wall street coterie, otherwise the beneficiar ies of those special trust privileges that the President has opposed, there should not be a single Republican with even a political reason for opposing the Presi dent. Independent of this clique, whose opposition should be a help rather than a hindrance to a candidate, the Repub lican party is united for the ticket. The opposition is correspondingly divided. There are hundreds of thousands of Democrats who have no sympathy with the new game the Democratic party is playing the open and avowed game of plutocracy. They do not like Parker's high fever in trust circles. They are much more inclined to support the man whose enforcement of the law has made Wail street seek the election of another man. A Boy's Wild Ride For Life. With family around expecting him to die, and a son riding for life, 18 miles, to get Dr. King's New Discovery for con sumption, coughs and colds, W. H. BrowD.of Leesville, Ind.,endured death s agonies from asthma; but this wonder ful medicine gave instant relief and soon cured him. He writes: "I now sleep soundly every night."

It is unique in form and binding and has twenty four pages of engravings. The display of the engrav ings is enhanced by the size of the page and the style of opening. It shows the Institution to be in a highly prosperous condition. The en rollment for the past year reached 944, being an increase of nearly 200 over the preceding year. The World's Fair re duced the attendance at many of the summer schools. The Kirksville sum mer school, however, bad an enrollment of 390 and an average daily attendance of 350 bona fide teachers, being an in crease of 10 per cent over last year. The school year is now divided into four quarters of three months each, cor responding to the four seasons of the year. The summer quarter is on the same basis as any other quarter of the year. The summer school closing last week was remarkable for the large num beer of Normal school and college gradu ates in attendance, nearly half of the en tire enrollment being graduates of col leges or Normal Schools. Those not graduates of such institutions were teachers who patronize the summer school to raise the grade of their certifi- cates. The Bulletin shows a Faculty of twenty-seven teachers for the ensuing year. They represent some fifteen dif ferent universities in the United States and Europe and more than thirty col leges and Normal Schools. The course of instruction includes Classical, Mathe matical, Scientific, History. English, Modern Language and Elective Courses; alo Superior Library facilities, excel lent laboratories, a practical school of methods, a pchool garden and a Manual Training shop; also Sloyd, Raffia and Pottery work for elementary teachf-rs; Art, Music, Reading, Physical Culture, Military Drill, Book Keeping, Nature Study, Field Athletics and Gymnasium with well equ pped bath room for ladies and one for gentlemen. The State University. The annual announcement of the Uni versity of Missouri at Columbia has just been received. A brief summary of its contents may be of interest to those who contemplate attending school this fall. The University maintains seven de partments each of which is a college in itself: Academic, more advanced work of the same general nature of that done in the high schools; Law, Medical, Mines and Metallurgy, Engineering, Agricul tural and Teachers' College. Both grad uate and undergraduate work iB offered in all of them except law which has no graduate course. Forty-seven professors, 16 assistant professors, 33 instructors and 15 assist ants are employed. Within the past three years a $40,000 Medical laboratory, a 840,000, hospital, a 830,000 Engineer ing building, a 840,000 Horticultural building and a 835,000 women's dormi tory have been built. The requirement for admission is a high school education or its equivalent. Tnere are no tuition charges. Students in law and in medicine pay a library fee of 810 for the year; all other students pay a similar fee of $5. The payment of this fee entitles one to all the privileges of libraries containing about 65,000 vol umes. Board, room, books and fees of students who board in the club houses need not exceed $140, aod for those who board in private families, $200 is suffi cient. Fearful Odds Against Him.

Nearly All That Is Used There and in France Comes from the United States. That petroleum exists in Algeria has long been a well-established fact. Ef forts have been mace from time to time, s:: e the French occupation of the ter ritory, to develop wells; but until quite recently such efforts have never given sa:".- .actcry results. According to Al gerian respapers. the principal ob sia in the way of such enterprises has he.-'!ot';re beer, the tremendous diffi e:"?; cbtair.iHg concessions to sink w I- Wuhin the last two years, how evrr., a largely increased interest has b :Pn awa' ener. in the mineral possibil-ii;-'-- of Alaeria in anticipation of a more liberal policy, which has already been inaugurated by the new and progressive governor-general of the colony. Inter est has been revived in the almost for gotten oil wells and it seems as if at last a realization of deferred hopes were at hand. Two producing wells yield between 80 and 100 barrels daily, but nothing like regular pumping has been undertaken, as the present company occupies itself In putting down other wells, the reser voirs being all full, before completing the erection of their refinery at St. Aime, department of Oran. The enormous advantages possessed by the owners of the concession covering these two wells are, first, nonliability to duty either in Algeria or In France (this alone is equivalent to a net profit of 90 francs ($17.37) a ton on the crude oil) ; second, the position of their prop erty, a few miles from the principal Al gerian railroad and close to the seaboard, as well as its situation In the center of a rapidly-growing population. The oil is heavily charged with para ffin and vaseline, containing as much as 10 to 12 per cent, of these constituents. Practically all the petroleum now used in France, as well as in Algeria, comes from the United States. DANIEL S. KIDDER. LARGEST SAILING VESSEL. The "Preussen," of Germany, Has Stdrage Boom for 5,000 Tons of Freight. The trip of the sailing vessel Preussen. which left its German home a year ago, attracts the liveliest attention. Generally speaking, the opinion pre vails that, on account of the progress made with steamers, sailing ships are doomed. Fer this reason the results of recent efforts to utilize large sailing ves sels in,tranoceanic traffic deserves spe cial mention. The Preussen has storage room for over 5,000 tontof 'freight. According to reports it "has fully justified expecta tions, and furnished proof that sailing vessels are not yet to be left out of con sideration. The trip from the canal to the Chilian port Iquique, a distance of 12,000 nautical miles, was.made in 57 days, a new record for sailing vessels being thereby estab lished. It must be borne in mind that the weather was not always favorable, and that the trip around Cape Horn was extremely tempestuous. The Paris Cosmos remarks, with ref erence to the voyage of the Preussen. that "if one considers the expenses of this vessel on such a trip, compared with those of a steamer. It becomes evident that sailing vessels w411 never disap pear." Only two obstacles are met, say Ger man papers, in the employment of big sailing vessels; first, it is hard to secure assurance of a sufficient cargo, and sec ond, it is difficult to secure a crew of suf ficient skill. These obstacles are im portant, because sailing vessels, in or der to be able to compete with steam." must be much larger than heretofore. RICHARD GUENTHER. Consuls Have No Funds. An idea which seems to haveobtained general credence in the United States is that if an American abroad finds him self stranded he can always get home by applying to his consul. Where or how this idea originated is unknown, but it seems to be possessed by at least 95 per cent, of all Americans who travel abroad. Every means available should be used to correct it. The widest pos sible publicity should be given in the American press to the fact that Amer ican consuls abroad have no funds with which to relieve indigent Americans or to send them home. Americans should understand fully before leaving home that they do so at their own risk, that they must expect favors from nobody in foreign countries, that they are like ly to encounter hard knocks, and that they must be prepared to receive them. If the American Is to become a world wanderer he should observe the meth ods of his European cousins, who ex pect to depend upon their own re sources under all conditions and cir cumstances. EDWARD M. CONLJSY. Protection of Birds in Mexico. An agitation has been on foot for some time looking to the passage of a law to prevent the wanton destruction of birds throughout this country; in fact, a pro posed law has already been presented to the government by the "Association for the Protection of Birds," and it is confidently expected that it will meet the approval of the executive. This law is intended to prevent the killing of cer tain classes of birds useful to the agri culturist. Other kinds, such as, for in stance, game birds, may be killed only at stated periods of the year. All birds of prey, and others destructive to the interests of the farmer, may be killed at any time and by anybody. Such a law, if rigidly enforced, cannot fail to be of great benefit to the people of the United States, as for instance In the case of migratory birds that winter In Mex ico, or even farther south, and that re turn to the north in the proper season If not killed off in the meantime.
