A Home Educator.
The local newspaper should be found in every home. So child will grow up ignorant who can be taught to ap preciate the home paper. It is the stepping stone of intelligence in all those matters not to be learned in books. Give your children a foreign paper which contains not one word about any person, place or thing which they ever saw, or perhaps ever heard of, and how can you expect them to be interested? But let them have the home paper and read of persons whom they meet, and places with which they are fa miliar, and soon an interest is awak ened which increases with every ar rival of the local paper. Thus a habit in reading is formed, and those chil dren will read the paper all their lives and become intelligent men and women, a credit to their ancestors and strong in their knowledge of the world as it is to-dav. Heed the New Laws. Perhaps there are quite a lot of people who are not aware of new criminal laws that will go into effect after Monday of next week. There are quite a number of them, among which it is very important that all should know from the fact it affects practices which men and boys have heretofore indulged in without fear of punishment to any extent. The first we mention is the gun toting law. This law is very stringent against this infamous practice There can be no excuse for any one except peace officers for carrying a gun. It makes no difference who you are, un less you are a peace officer, the law makes it a felony for you to carry a gun. Another law will put a stop to the hilarious times that some people persist in having on the cars while travelling it makes no difference whether in the baggage or dining car, it denies to you the privilege of un corking your favorite brand you may perchance have in your grip, while you are in the day coach or chair car. Persons who are intoxicated will not be permitted to ride on passenger trains in Missouri. The law does not say whether they would be denied in stock cars or not. Battle of the Levels. Either the space writers in the newspapers and magazines are fully occupied with the tariff question, or the "battle of the levels" at Panama, which they recently fought at long range resulted in their defeat. For two months now, the public has not been regaled with accounts of the charges of the pencil pushers upon the government engineers. There hasn't been even the rumor of a skir mish. There seems to be a complete cessation of hostilities. Iso more ridiculous campaign was ever conducted. It was a campaign of assumption and presumption. The absurd statements made influenced only the ignorant, if they paid any attention at all to them. Certain it is that they did not change a single plan at the canal, or hold back a shovelful of dirt. If anything, the dirt flew faster and the shovels went deeper. The government engineers paid no more attention to the charges of grave mistakes than they did to the few lonesome mosquitoes that escaped the kerosene. The vaporings of certain congressmen who desired publicity more than anything else, did not obscure the fact that the ca nal was being dug on original plans. Undoubtedly the space writers were richly awarded by the trans-continental railroads which will be affected by the opening of the canal. Perhaps those congressmen who joined in the chorus 'will not have sung in vain. The laborer is worthy oi his hire, though his work is not productive of desired, results. The fight against a lock canal may be renewed, but it seems to be won, just as every intelli gent man expected. Letter List.

RIVERVIEW EXPOSITION, CHICAGO Entrance to Creation Building, with Robin's magnificemt "Guardian Angel," seventy-three feet high, whose spread wings arch one hundred and fifty feet above the admiring multitudes. In the beautiful marbled edifice is the largest stage in the world, two hundred and seventy-five fee: wide, one hundred and ten feet deep and eighty feet high. Here is enacted in reverential grandeur the great biblical drama of the "Garden of Eden." "Creation" is but one of the thousand attractions at Riverview Exposition. In the production a great organ intones appropriate music. Its deep tubes froduce thunder; its flute-like notes, the mimicry of forest small life.. Flashes' of ightning and angry storms are made by electrical and water effects. Throughout the exhibition grounds famous bands render the crystal air resonant with melody. The softer tones of orchestras, laughter of joyous throngs, whirr of aerial cars and of flying machines, pounding of great steamers, chanting of Indians, diverse harmonies of "ballyhoos," spraying fountains, cascades, lakes and river, and countless other activities of the great Exposition, mystifv, amaze and delight. To visit Chicago without seeing RIVERVIEW EXPOSITION would be to fcU to see its greatest attraction. All car lines lead to its gates. A CHOICE BARGAIN. Wonderful Opportunity in the State of Washington. The following is the owner's description of S0S.5 acres of land in Frank lin County, Washington, which he is compelled to sell at a sacrifice: "All of one Section comprising 4S0.5 acres. This land has one mile of waterfront on the Columbia River. There is a first bench running all the wav down the river for a full mile, which can be .irrigated from the river with a small pumping plant, costing perhaps $1,000.00. "The second bench is excellent wheat land, or can be irrigated from the river with a slightlv higher lift. The soil is a rich volcanic ash, running some places as deep as CO feet. There is no scab of any kind. A small cou lee runs through it from the river which can be utilized for grazing purposes. The "Jsorth Coast railroad crosses the river in the adjoining section and a small townsite is being located there by them. The Northern Pacific station is 12 miles away. "The North one-half of the section, cornering on above section, .com prises 328 acres, and has the same sort of soil. It is upland and unless the government will irrigate it -in one of their projects, can only be used for raising wheat at the present time. The south half Of this section is in cul tivation and has given excellent results. "With the prospective irrigation schemes of the government in this part of the state, great possibilities will be verified, and the land worth. $100 to, $300 per acre, as has been demonstrated where irrigation has affected similar lands near by." The owner is in urgent need of funds and for this reason will sell-entire 808.5 acres for 7.500. on a cash basis, if sold before October 1st. The undersigned is well known in Northwestern Missouri and can con scientiouslv recommend this as one of the best land investments in the state of Washington, and will be pleased to give further details to anyone in terested.
