trade away from him but with all his out cry he is really making no serious effort to stop him says the Adverting World You cant stop people from buying where they think they can buy thp cheapest simply by the use of Ipvec Live The only way the country mer chant can hope to compptp with the pail order housps is by meeting them on their own groundsby advertising There is absolutely no hope for the business of the country merchant until he corrects a few of his time worn views about advertising Advertising is simply telling what we have to sell and the price It makes no difference if your ads are not written by an ex pert or illustrated by a high priced ar tist you can make them effective and result producing if you bear in mind the one point that an ad should tell about what you have to sell and not simply about yourself Any kind of advertisement is of course better than none All adver tising pays in some way or other but the merchant who docs no advertising at all because he is not able to afford big pages makes one large mistake If you cant do the best advertising do the best you can What thebest is that you can do may seem very small but advertising is something that pays for itself and It increases right along When Doctors Disagree When doctors disagree It is hard for unsophisticated laymen to find their way out of thes cientitjc labyrinth The other day the eminent doctor Kooch assured the public that itcould eat its steak and drink its milk with out any doubt as to whether the ani mal had tuberculosis If it bad the doctor soothingly said it was of a dif ferent species from that which makes its habitat in the human frame No sooner had the meatcaters and the milkdrinkers settled down to steak and cup than others claimed the bene fit of the discovery and later stilt came a chorus from the profession that the German medical man did not know what he was talking about Now the babble between the warring despalrtIt Is a pity that doctors oannotse tle their

reputable cittzns of La bette and Montgomery counties to be the notorious Benders gctJifri d of 37 murders in Kansas in 187r The affidavits upon which theVtquisition was granted were made by E M Dack TB Smith V A Monejhtmd and M E Sparks who went to Colorado es pecially to see the four suspected per sons The steps to bring the suspected ones to Kansas are taken upon the representation of Frank Ayers of Ft Collins Colo who claims that he knows them and the notorious Kate Bender was once his wife He says that they live at Ft Col lins Colo where the father and moth er are known as Charles Read and wife and the two children as William Baker and May Baker He says the old man is about 79 years of age and his wife about five or six years younger The other two he says are about fifty In 1871 the Benders lived in Labette county Kas near Cherryvale The family consisted of William Bender aged about his wife aged about 54 Kate aged about 25 and John aged perhaps 23 Kate and John were children of William Bender by a form er wife The house was a frame 1Gx 19 feet and fronted north There was a door at either end and the room was divided by a canvass partition drawn tightly over upright scantlings This partition was the deathtrap The victims nearly all travelers were decoyed to a seat close against the canvass and Kate did the rest Every mjjn they killed had a hors but pnl JtWQ animals the family took tp the farm were found after the flight The horses it is believed were run out of the country by confederates The clothes of their victims were al so disposed of in that way

potent ap peal to the voters of the Eastern States and even in New York his own State he is opposed by his partys ma chine If he depended on New York to suggest and compel his nomination for the Presidency in the next Repuo Bean National Convention he wonld be betrayed to defeat It is only by means of pressure from the West where he is most popular that he will able to get New York in line He is in peculiar situation in this respect but it is now evident that he recogni zes the tactics proper to such a sltua atibn Illinois as one as the Middle West States will make good fighting ground for Roosevelt The Rapublicaos of that State are already resentful of President McKinleys Interference in their Senatorial conflict Governor Yates has come out openly against the administration candidate for Senator former comptroller Dawes and the Yates machine is now in opposition to the McKinley machine in Illinois Yates has also placed himself on record as being unequivocally for Roosevelt in 1904 This will be a good and strong fight for Yates to makeas full of promise for his dominance in Illinois politics as it Is for Roosevelts candi dacy for the Presidential nomination The RooseveltYates alliance is likely to be formidable The peril to Roosevelt lies in the pre mature unmasking of his plans His candidacy now openly aligns him against the Hanna machine the most powerful yet known in American poli tics Hanna is supreme master of the Republican national organization He commands the influence and the money of the trusts in his management of Re publican national affairs He will not

picketline one night when he was baited by the picket taken back into camp and presented before Gen Lew is After all were out of the tent ex ept mme and the General the Gen eral said Billie I know your great loyalty to the confederacy you are not suspected by any one of trying to de sert we all have plenty of provisions your horse is well fed and for the life of me I can not imagine for what or where you were going My real curios ity is aroused Tell me the object for which you were trying to pass through the picketlines Well General said Billie I will tell you Mv mess drew straws to termine who should go to a moonshine still louse over in the hills and I drew the shortest straw- The General raised himself to his full height rut on his severest military look and said Billie you have been a good soldier you have been in the thickest of every fight all except you and two comrades who composed- your original company have fallen vie tams to Yankee bullets you have nev er been in the guardhouse heretofore your conduct as a soldier has been ad hayaIam surprised to find you guilty of so seri ous a matter as about to bring whisky into camp You know that one of the strictest orders one sought most to be enforced is to keep out whisky Now I wish to impress upon you the im portance and necessity of this order and I want yon to understand that if you ever go out of the lines again for that purpose you will be severely pun Ished You may go now but remem ber the Injunction not go out for whisky But Billie I wish to say to you that if you should disobey this rule and go any how as you come back please call by my tent Before morning Billie called at the Generals tent and from behind a well held tentrtlap stuck in a quart The only sign of complaint heard was the popping of a
