wants to make progress and do the bee he can it doesnt take neltispnperAllstarted at progress LOOKING TO THE PEOPLE Every student and watcher of public affairs will agree that andtprivate parties than of the people the courts cannot bo trusted to ad inhunfair privileges and BO on Things are wrong very wrong and there is a growing nod just discontent It is a good thlnfSwiLen it is evident that all is not right to find out who is to blame Congress some the politicians governmentButfault lies with the man or men that have the power There may be several at fault nod every Congressman and every official is to blame just so far as ho abuses his power But after all no man or set of men have tho real power iu our government for as we all know In this free government TIlE POWER LIES WITH THE PEOPLE And if the people have the power then they must be to blame And it is due thorn The people of this country could in one yeardsome pleasant rascals and put the basis of the elections squarely on tho capacity and intention of the candidates to act rightly in these public matters about which theta is so much just complaint then those matters would be remedied as soon as the new officials could got into their seats Is that not rasp And if it is then the people who refuse BO to sot aside private interests for the good of the public aro the ones who are to blame for the ills which the public suffers And the sad thing which reformers and other people who are trying to work for the good of the whole people are up against all the time is thisThe people will not support the men who are working for them They let themselves be fooled or bought and the rascals keep getting back into office even after the time has come when there is not a voter in the district who would trust them with a quarter President Taft in his plans for reforms is up against this In a speech tho other day he said It IB to tho that we must look for the enforcement of these principles You should select your representatives and have them know that you are watching in Congress and you should see that they follow the lines of enforcement poUcieslorthis country believe without further help from those same voters in the way of making their Congressmen vote for those policies And will the people do it Well look around The writer was familiar with the races of three Congressmen in Kentucky two in Ohio and four in New York last year In only two of those races was a word ever said about the policies which it was everywhere km ntb8t Congressmen would have to vote on The races in all the other cases were decideden tirely on other things in most cases things which did not have the Pahonagefrlendllhlpused in every race and in some races entirely and by those moans were chosen the men who went to Washington and votedon the interests of the people Is it any wonder that they betrayed thorn interests or that they are expected to betray them again this winter and that Pres Taft with tho mandate of his party upon him has to appeal again to the people to help him make their so called representatives do tho things which the peoples interest demands And is not a fact that the people who sent the men to are the ones who aro really to blame that these misReptcsentativcs- betray the country i Till that truth sinks home and the peoplo use their power to get goodrepresentatives there is no hope

Money for the Customer and Makes It for Both tho Advertiser and the Editor Why It Pays to Patronize the Man that Advertises Last week wo showed how a single years advertising will pay a merchant how by advertising ho can increase his profits without increasing his prices to his customers Dub that is only halt tho story a good advertiser will actually mako larger profits and sell goods cheaper than a man who does not advertise In other wordstho advertiser is tho cheapo- man r to buy from The proof In thi case is Just as clear as In the other read this thru and you will havo to admit It The figures are accurate tho principle clear the results sure H pays to trade with a good adver User that Is the point The first years business ot Mr Up- Date aftej he began advertising yo will remember resulted as follows PROFITS 10 per cent on 9500 of busi ness 1950 2 per cent discount on 5000 100 oo 1050 LOSS 100 trots advertising hIs old goods being sold out without loss by means of cales Total profits 950 Now let uo follow him thru the next year Ho decides to keep up his advertising for he finds that he IsI making more money than Mr Waye B Hind In spite of the latters statement that adverlslng Is an useless expense and alsohe has another Idea He has learned that business pays and he decides to go after the business So ho figures It out thatI ho can afford to sell goods at 8 per cent profit Instead ot 10 per cent and calculates to make the differ ence later when ho gets tho trade Into his own hands B Iliad is still selling at 10 per cent he cannot af ford to cut and Upto Date does not forget to mention In his advertisement that he Is selling the HIDe goods for a little lens than hlo rival ItIII only a little Iocs to br sure but It is something and he really does under soil on every article even If It Is only by a penny Careful buyers note tho difference Result First ho holds all his old trade Second ho get all tho new trade as tho town STOWS about 2000 Third ho Seta 2000 worth of trade away from B Hind even a slow mer chant will haro some customers who want to save money Fourth he reaches out into the country for now trade People willI come a little way to save a tow cents and the new trade is thus worth an other 1000 Fifth with his larger trade his goods sell still taster and he can dis court more goods 10000 worth Sixth with his larger trade be does not havo so much stuff left on his shelves and so saves a little on hisat cost sales Seventh by buying larger quantities of goods and paying more promptly h- Is able to geb better prices on all he buys Let us put that saving at 2 per cent It will vary according to tho man So hero Is his balanco sheet Amount ot business 15000 8 per cent on sale of 14700 1176 2 per cent discount on all 294 2 per cent dlccount on 10000 bills 200 1670 He had 300 worth sold out at cost no profit or loss And as before he had a dead loss as Mr Wayo B Hind would say on his advertising of 100 So his total profits were only 1570 That Is he rondo that year more than twice as much as Mr Hind And ho was growing while B Hind was losing And he sold goods cheaper than Mr B Iliad Who pays for tho advertising Not tho customers In that case You see it paid to advertise and cost money not to The man who doesnt advertise has to charge his customers moro than the roan that does and even then I he makes less off trom them Joking aside there Is no more foolish story put out by an antediluvian store keeper than the yarn about tho price of advertising coming out of the customer It Is rotplain rot The advertising more than pays for itself there lo no doubt about that And a good merchant makes enough profit on his advertising so that he cnn cave his customer money it With the same capital same goods same customers same chance every way the advertisers will win out over the man that dont advertise EVERY TIME Continued on fourth pare rr J is n 1Iknowledge Js to read a good lnewspaper I IIN OUR OWN STATE Senator

long bench north of the house tho river In changing Its course many years earli er had left a depression known as Mud lake It had become separated from the main channel of the Crawling Stone by a high narrow barrier In tho form of a bench deposited by the receding waters of some earlier flood and added to by sandstorms sweeping among tho willows that overspread It Without an effective head or definite system of work the efforts of tho men at tho Stone ranch were of no more consequence than if they had spent their time In waving blankets at the river Twenty men riding in together to tell Lance Dunning that the river was washing out tho tree claims above Mud lake made no perceptible differ once in tho event DIcksle though an Inexperienced girl saw with helpless clearness the futility of It all Terror seized Dlcksle She tale phoned in her distress for Marlon begging her to come up before they should all be swept away and Marion turning the shop over to Katie Dan ring got into the ranch wagon that Dicksie had sent and started for the Crawling Stone At noon Marion arrived The ranch house was deserted and the men wore all at the river Puss stuck her head out of the kitchen window and DIck sle ran out and threw herself Into Marlons arms Late news from the front had been the worst the cutting above Mud lake had weakened tho last barrier that held off the river and every available man was fighting the current at that point Marlon heard it all while eating a luncheon DIckale beset with anxiety could not stay In the house Tho man that had driven Marion over saddled horses In the afternoon and the two women rode up above Mud lake now become through rainfall and seepage from the river a long shallow lagoon For an hour they watched tho shovel- Ing and carrying of sandbags and rode toward the river to the very edge of the disappearing willows whore the bank was melting away before the undercut of the resistless current They rode away with a common feel lnga conviction that the fight was a losing one and that another day would see the ruin complete DIcksle exclaimed Marlon they were riding to the house as she spoke =Ill tell you what we can do She hesitated a moment I will tell you what we can dol Are you plucky DIcksle looked at Marlon pathet icallyIf you are plucky enough to do It we can keep the river off yet I have an Idea I will go but you must come along Marion what do you mean t Dont you think I would go anywhere to save the ranch I should like to know where you dare go in this country that I dare not Then rldo with me over to the

nott Why he Is such an awful man That Is absurd Dicks Ie Dlckslo looked grave Marlon no man In this part of the country hoi a good word to say for Whispering SmithPerhaps you have forgotten Dick sle that you live In a very rough part of tho country returned Marion coolly No man that ho has over hunted down would have anything pleasant to say about him nor would tho friends of such a man be likely to say a good word of him There are many on tho range DIcksle that have no respect for life or law or anything else and they naturally hate a man like Whispering Smith But Marion he killed I know lie killed a man named Williams a few years ago while you wore at school ono of the worst men that ever Infested this country Wil lams Cache Is named after that man he made tho most beautiful spot In all these mountains a nest of thieves and murderers But did you know that Williams shot down Gordon Smiths only brother a trainmaster in cold blood in front of the Wickiup at Med cine Bend No you never heard that In this part of tho country did you They had a cow tblof for sheriff then and no officer ra Medicine Bond would go after tho murderer Ho rode In and out of town as It he owned It and no one dared say a word and mind you Gordon Smiths brother had never seen the man in his life until he walked up and shot him dead Oh this was a peaceful country a few years ago Gordon Smith was rightofway man In the mountains then lIe burled his brother and asked the officers what they were going to do about get lag tho murderer They laughed at him He mado no protest except to ask for a deputy United States marshals commission When begot It he started for Williams Cacho after Williams In a buckboardthink of itDIcksle and didnt they laugh at him He did not even know the trails and Imagine riding 200 miles In a buck board to arrest a man in tho moun tains He WAS gone six weeks and came back with Williams body strapped to the buckboard behind him lIe never told the story all he said when he handed In his commission and went back to his work was that the man was killed in a fair fight Hate him No wonder they hate him tho Williams Cache gang and all their friends on the range Your cous in thinks it policy to placate that element hoping that they wont steal your cattle it you are friendly with them I know nothing about that but I do know something about Whispering Smith It will be a bad day tor Williams Cache when they start him up again But what has that to do with your trouble Ho will not cat you up if you go to tho camp Dicksie You are just raising bogIes They had moved to the front porch and Marion was sitting In tho rocking chair Dlckslo stood with her back against one of tho pillars and looked at her As Marlon finished Dlcksle turned and with her hand on her fore head looked in wretchedness of mind out on the valley As far In many dl rectlons as tho eye could reach tho waters spread yellow In tho flood of sunshine across the lowlands There was a moment of silence Dlckslo turned her back on the alarming sight Marlon I cant doIU Oh yes you can If you want to DIcksle wIthItearless eyes only a question of being plucky enough insisted Marion Pluck has nothing to do

laughed Well do you think you can find tho way flown there for us I can find any way anywhere within 100 miles of hero On tho 20th of June McCloud did havo something of an army of men In the Crawling Stono valley Of these 250 were In the vicinity of the bridge tho abutments and piers of which were being put In just below the Dun ning ranch Near at hand Bill Dan clog with a big gang had been for some Umo watching the ice and dyna miting the jams McCloud brought In moro men as the river continued to rise The danger line on the gauges was at length submerged and for three days tho male Mno construction camps had been robbed of men to guard the soft grades above and below tho bridge Tho new track up and down the valley bad become a highway of escape from tho flood and the track patrols were met at every curvo by cattle horses wolves and coyotes fleeing from the waste of waters Through tho Dunning ranch tho Crawling Stone river makes a far bend across the valley to the north and The extraordinary volume of water now pouring through the Box canyon exposed 10000 acres of the ranch to the caprice of the river and If at the point of Its tremendous sweep to tho north It should cut back Into Its old channel tho change would wipe the entire body of ranch alfalfa lands off the taco of the valley With the heat of the lengthening June days a vast steam rose from the chill waters of the river marking in ominous wind Ings the channel of the majn stream through a yellow sea which Ignoring tho usual landmarks of trees and dunes flanked the urrent broadly on either side Lato In tho afternoon of the day that DIcksle with Marlon sought McCloud a storm drifted down the Topah Topah hUs and heavy showers broke across the valley At nightfall tho ralu bad passed and the mist lifted from the river Above the bluffs rolllne patches of cloud ob icune J the face of the moon but tho I distant thunder had ceased and at midnight the valley near the bridge lay In a stillness broken only by the hoarse calla of tho patrols and faroff megaphones From tho bridge camp which lay on high ground near tho grade tho distant lamps of the track walkers could bo seen moving dimly Uoforo the campfire In front of Mc Clouds tent a group of men smoking and talking sat or lay sprawled on I tarpaulins drying themselves after the long day Among them woro the weatherbeaten remnants of tho old guard of the mountain workers men who had fought the Spider Water with Glover Bill Dancing hugo lum bering awkward as a bear and as shifty waa talking because with no apparent effort ho could talk ell night and was a valuable man at keeping the camp awake Bill Dancing talked and after Sinclairs namo had boon dropped from tho roll ato and drank more than any two men on tho division A little apart McCloud lay on a leather cabooso cushion trying to get a nap Tho man sent to tho bridge had turned back and behind his lantern Dancing heard the tread of horses lie stood at one side of tho campfire

for saying thatr Dr Cook did not go to tho north pole will be understood by those who read twottwho told rao and others of my party where he did go Several Eskimos who started with Dr Cook from An 0 oratok in February 1908 were at Etafa when I arrived there in August 1908 They told mo that Dr Cook had with him after they left two Eskimo boys or young men two sledges and some twenty dogs Tho boys were baditOne was about eighteen and tho other about nineteen years of ago i rOnmy return from Cape Sheridan at the very first settlement I touched Norko near Cape Chalon in boCoreJin a general way where Dr Cook bad been that ho had wintered In Jonesi Sound and that he had told the white men at Etah that ho had been a long weretsaid that this was not so The Eski Onrthere and with the two boys and asked them to describe Dr Cooks Journey to members ot my party and myself This they did in tho manner stated below Signed 11 Eo PEARY Signed Statement of Peary Bartlett McMillan Borup and Henson In Re gird to Testimony of Cooks Two Eskimo Boys Tho two Eskimo boys I took a shoo and Ahpolah who accompanied Dr Cook while he was away from Anora tok in 1908 and 1909 were questioned separately and independently and were corroborated by Panlkpah thoI father of one ot thorn 1 took a shoo who was personally familiar with tho first third and tho last third of their Journey and who said that the route for tho remaining third as shown byI thorn was as described to him by his son after his return with Dr Cook To go more into details One of the boys was called in and with a chart on the table before him was asked to show whore ho had gone with Dr Cook This he did pointing t out with his finger on tho map but not making any marks upon It As he went out the other boy came In and was asked to show where ho had gono with Dr Cook This he did also without making any marks and Indicated tho same route and tho same details as did the first boy When ho was through Pantkpah the father of I took a shoo a very Intelligent man who was in the party ot Eskimos that came back from Dr Cook from the northern end of Nan sons strait who Is familiar as a hunt er with tho Jones Sound region and who has been In Commander Pearys various expeditions for some fifteen years camo In and indicated tho same localities and details as the two boys Then tho first boy was brought In again and with a pencil he traced on the map their route members of our party writing upon tho chart where according to the boys statement they bad killed deer bear some of their dogs seal walrus and musk oxen Tho second boy was then called In and the two went over the chart together the second boy suggesting some changes as noted hereafter During tho taking of this testimony Trained Eagles for Aviation One of tho most fanatic ballooning projects of tho past was that of an Austrian who suggested nearly a cen tury ago that balloons might be guided in any desired direction with tho aid of trained eagles Long Delayed Tribute The experienced reporter is a model of courtesy acknowledged a Philadelphia preacher First bouquet of that kind In years and years Cleveland Leader I MAP SHOWING WHAT PERRY CLAIMS IS ROUTE TRAVELED BY DR COOK it developed that Dr Cook had told these boys as ho told Mr Whitney and Dilly Pritchard tho cabin boy that they must not tell Commander Peary or any of us anything about theIr journey and tho boys stated Dr Cook had threatened them It they should tell anything The narrative of these Eskimos is as follows They with Dr Cook Francko and nine other Eskimos left Anoratok crossed Smiths Sound to Cape Sabine slept In Commander Pearys old house in Payer Harbor then went through Rice strait to Buchanan bay After a few marches Francko and three Eski mos returned to Anoratok Dr Cook with tho others then pro ceded up Flaglcr bay a branch of Buchanan bay and crossed Elles mero Land through tht valley pass at the head of Flagler bay Indicated by Commander Peary in 1898 and utilized by Sverdrup In 1899 to tho head of Svcrdrups Day Fiord on the west side of Ellesmoro Land Their route then lay out through this fiord thence north through Sver drups Houerka Sound and Nanson straitOn their way they killed musk oxen and bear and made caches arriving eventually at a point on the west side ot Nansen strait shore of Axel Hot berg Land of Sverdrup south of Capo Thomas Hubbard A cache was formed hero and the four Eskimos did not go beyond this point Two others Kootootingwah and Inughlto wont on ono more march with Dr Cook and the two boys helped to build the snow Igloo then returned without sleeping Thoso two Eskimos brought back- a letter from Dr Cook to Francko dated the seventeenth of March Thq two men rejoined the other four men who had been left behind and the six returned to Anoratok arriving MayA This Information was obtained not from the two Eskimo boys but from the six men who returned and from Francko himself and was known to us In tho summer of 1908 when tho Roosevelt first Arrived at Etah The information Is Inserted here as supple mentary to the narrative of the two boysAfter sleeping at the camp where the last two Eskimos turned back Dr Cook and the two boys went In a northerly or northwesterly direction with two sledges and twentyodd dogs one or more march when they en countered rough Ice and a lead of open water They did notenter this rough Ice nor cross the lead but turned westward or southwestward a short distance and returned to Helberg Land at a point West of where they had loft the cache and where the four men had I turned hack

After being Informed of the boys narrative thus far Commander Pary suggested a series of questions to be tripfromDid they cross many open leads or much open water during this time Ana None Did they make any caches out on the IceT Ana NoIWith how start t Ans Two How many dogs did they have Ans Did not remember exactly but something over twenty How many sledges did they have when they got back to land Ans TwoDid they have any provisions left on their sledges when they fame back to land Ans Yes the sledges still had about all they could carry so they were able to take but a few things from the cache From here they went southwest along the northwest coast of Helberg Land to a point Indicated on the map Sverdrups Cape Northwest From here they went west across the Ice which was level and covered with snow offering good going to a low Island which they had seen from the shore of Helberg Land at Cape Northwest On this Island they camped for one sleep From this Island they could lee two lands beyond Sverdrups Ellef Ring nes and Amund Rlngnes Lands From the Island they journeyed toward the lefthand one of these two lands Amund Rlnges Land passing a small Island which they did not visit Arriving at the shore of Amund Rlngnes Land the Eskimos kilted a deer as Indicated on the chart The above portion of the statement of the Eskimo boys covers the period of time In which Dr Cook claims to have gone to the pole and back and the entire time during which he could possibly have made any attempts to go to It If It Is suggested that perhaps Dr Cook got mixed and that he reached the pole or thought he did between the time of leaving tho northwest coast of Helberg Land at Cape North west and his arrival at Rlngnes Land where they killed the deer we must then add to the date of Dr Cooks let ter of March 11th at or near Cape Thomas Hubbard the subsequent four or five sleeps at that point and the number of days required to march from Cape Thomas Hubbard to Cape Northwest a distance of some sixty nautical miles which would advance his date of departure from the land to at least the 25th of March and be prepared to accept the claim that Dr Cook went from Cape Northwest about latitude eighty and a half de grees north to the pole a distance of Damage Done by Brown Rat The brown or Norway rat is regarded by the United States department of agriculture as the worst

country that flows in a generally north erly direction Into an ocean r five hundred and seventy geographical miles In twentyseven days After killing the deer they then trav eled south along the east side of RIng nes Land to the point Indicated on the chart where they killed another deer They then went east across the south part of Crown Prince Gustav sea to the south end of Helberg Land then down through Norwegian bay where they secured some bears but not until after they bad killed some of their dogs to the east side of Gra ham Island then eastward to the lit lie bay marked Elds Fiord on Sver drops chart then southwest to Hells Gate and Simmons peninsula Here for the first time during the entire journey except as already noted oft Cape Thomas H Hubbard they encountered open water On this point the boys were clear emphatic and unshakable They spent a good deal of time In this region and finally abandoned their dogs and one sledge took to their boat crossed Hells Gate to North Kent up Into Norfolk Inlet then back along the north coast of Colin Archer Peninsula to Cape Vera where they obtained fresh elder duck eggs Hero they cut the remaining sledge off that is shortened it as It was awkward to transport with the boat and near here they killed a wal rus From Cape Vera they went on down Into the southwest angle of Junes Sound where they killed a seal thence east along the south coast oi the sound killing three bears at the point noted on the map to the penin sumo known as Cape Sparbo on the map about midway on the south side of Jones Sound Here they killed some muskoxen and continuing east killed four moro at the place Indi cated on the chart and were finally stopped by the pack Ice at the mouth of Jones Sound From here they turned back to Cape Sparbo where they wintered and killed many musk oxen After the sun returned In 1909 they started pushing their sledge across Jones Sound to Cape Tennyson thence along the coast to Clarence Head passing Inside of two small Islands not shown on the chart but drawn on It by the boys where they killed a bear thence across the broad bight In the coast to Cadogan Fiord thence around Cape Isabella and up to Corn mander Pearys

fertilize the soil the more we find it needs We must learn to keep our soil pr ductive without the use of fertilizer and to do this wo must rotate our crops and keep the soil from wash Ing away Good land becomes poo because of single cropping and the wash of rainsiSingle cropping and the washing ot soil are the result of poor management The old wheat soils of Maryland aro producing more than double the yield per acre of the rich lands of the Dakotas simply because careful mar agement is practiced If the people of Maryland can improve their soils an hold them good so can the people o

Continued from First rage of all visitors This canyon of the Colorado River would contain all others to be found In our country Tho cause probably is that while tho wearing process has been going on there has been an almost imperceptible lifting of this part of the earths moltientlon of tho flowing water upon tho bottoms and sides ot their channels became greater and thus the rate of wearing was Increased The work Is still going on so that in the great canyon the waters of the Colo rado are never clear Leaving out the general wearing away of the rocks in all this region and confining our selves to the gigantic ditch in question it is to be said that while mostly in Arizonla tho upper portion is in Utah and a little ot the lower along the line be j teen Arizonla and Nevada Just where to say it begins and ends is a difficult matter It Is Quito crooked Following the course of the river it is called 217 miles In length But i as the coves are numerous and the tributaries of the main river have their own canyons I suppose that one traveling along the rim on one side would have to go more than ten times that distance The average width may bo called ten miles and the depth below the surrounding coun try four to five thousand feet Not all ot the Intervening mass is worn away i Some of it stands In the form ot Innumerable craggy mountains rising from the bottom of the great chasm I At the point reached by the railroad the distance from rim to rim is about thirteen miles But dfstances I are so deceptive In dealing with these stupendous objects that the untrained observe r would not call It more than two or three miles An Idea of the nature of the wall may bo gathered from the following statement of the successive kinds of rock beginning at the rivers edge Gneiss and slate with gran Ito mixed 800 feet Quartzites very hard dip ped 800 feet Sand stone greenish with matted spots COO feet Bedded masses of sand stone and limestone 700 feet Limestone in parts a fine marble 1600 feet Total height 4400 feet Much of It is stained a brilliant red from the thin veins ot iron lying at intervals above otltheWe secured fine views of some I or 30 miles of the canyon Close to the hotel Bright Angel trail has been prepared so that people may descendI to the depths either on foot backs of burros Some venture down to the rive some go to a broad pla teau 1200 feet above it and 3200 feet lower than tho rim and some con tent themselves with the various enchanting views from the top Mrs Dodge those the last I went to the plateau and made the trip on foot In this way I saved tour dollars of money the coot of donkey and the guide fee and at the same tlmo felt safe But the tax upon the muscles and breath was rather severe Now live days removed from the time of the trip any considerable movement I of the lower limbs brings sensations I which may be called souvenirs of the Grand Canyon I was away from the t hotel nine and threefourths hours Two full hours of this was on the plateau In tho very midst of the wonderous beauties of the scene Around on all sides were the stup endous and gorgeously colored cliffs resembling in plans almost any im aginable object Some ot them were Thetrushing was below me and its sound came up tome as a lulling music Going close to traceethe stream for several miles Just beforo I began my return I could nee the little mounted party just reaching the river by a ravine on ono side cf- me I could have imagined them a row ot tiny ants Reluctantly I turn beerfore me wishing that I could have still hours and days for tho effects of

recent muchneeded movemen for tho improvement ot the streets of Berea has lead to a good deal 08 mis understanding owing to the failure of some people properly to Interpret the statutes bearing on the subject Some men even members of the Town Council have believed that property hold era could be required by ordinance to construct or repair tho streets In view of this and on the request of several friends we print below the statute bearing on the case Revised Statute of Kentucky Mu nicipal Corporations of the Fifth Class City Council and Powers Section 3643 Public wayssidewalkscost ol Int roving Hen upon abutting pr I rrty The city council is hereby author ized and empowered to order any wool they deem necessary to be done upon the sidewalks curbing sewers streets avenues highways and public places of such city The cost and expense Incurred In constructing or repairing streets avenues highways sowers and public places ot the city shall be paid out of the general fund of the city The expense Incurred in making and repairing sidewalks and curbing shall be paid by the owners of the lands fronting on and abutting thereon etc the remainder ol the statute be- Ing concerned with the cost ot the sidewalks and curbs In view of tho clear distinction by statute placing the costyof street Improvements upon the general fund of the city any attempt to force any property owner to meet that expense must fall It is of course open to debate whether as a matter of public spirit or charity to thQ town some property holders ought not to bear part or all ot the expenses of the street improvements and as a matter of fact In several cases citizens have borne onethird of such cost on streets on which they lived and have contributed smaller amounts for the im provements of other streets The question recently came up ct the Improvement of Chsetnut street and an attempt was made by some thOIImpression GO T- OWJTatums FOR Fresh Groceries I I buy all kinds of Produce INorth

DRAUGHT liver Medicine The reputation of this old relic bla constipation Indigestion and liver trouble Is firm ly It does not Imitate other medicines It is better than others or it would not be the rvorite liver powder with a larger sale than all others combined SOLD IN TOWN Pat passes thru Its propery The legal right of the matter is pretty clearly shown in the statue quoted above and while law is a matter in which many evasions are likely the chance that any court would rule against the plain statue and in favor of a t strained interpretation of some other sections is not strong enough to warrant the hope and argument putout a by some of these councilmen and others It As to tho m Alter of right the Col lego has always met its full share of the burdens of Improving the town and was of course willing to do so in this case Feeling that since It pays no taxes it should be more gen erous than other property holders in matters of public improvements this kind and desiring always to do all that can be reasonably asked ot It by fair minded citizens it made an J offer for the work on this street The College has almost no traffic on the street derives little benefit from It and is in fact injured rather than helped by the passage of tho street thru its property and It will derive very little benefit from the Improve ment of the street except Scam the general improved condition of the town that will result Nevertheless r the College made the following offer It offered to pay the first f100 for the Improvement of the street and to pay onehalf of all further Im r i provement up to the total amount of 2000 which Is several hundred more than the estimated cost In addition to building the curbs which the coun i ell has thb right to require In other words the College offered to doall that could be required by law and to give 1100 more for the townII Improvement In which I t has no in I 1 I terest We do not believe that any fair minded man needs any thing moro than the

he had been denied access to them even after ho had made repeated appointments with them He enters a sweeping denial of the charge that he gave out n newspa per story which is said to be the cause of his deposition and places squarely upon the shoulders of Presl dent Taft the responsibility for the various utterances ho has made re- gardIng conditions in the far east which have aroused the ire of

pearl beads and tiny clear beads worked upon chiffon allover or insertion The ins sertion Is tO a yard and one of the pearl collars costs no less than 16 Its richness cannot be appreciated un til one sees the material Itself The smallest clear beads imaginable are belingtrimming very rich in appearance Valenciennes lace again comes to the fore in trimming of satin over skirts In many Instances it is slightly gathered especially where there are loops and graceful curves The ma tonal is cut from beneath and this softens the skirt very much Many lace pieces are used on the corsage to define more

species of drug habit for wo can call It by no other name growing up amohg athletes and others made thirsty by drastic exer else which calls for comment The monotony of drinks or the craze for something fresh no doubt accounts partly for this departure but we feel IJ sure also says the Lancet that a grad uolly Increasing knowledge of drugs and their uses Is a contributory facto-r Tho layman learns that under certain circumstances bitters for ex ample do good they stimulate the nerves of tasto and Induce reflex ef I fects which serve to aid the digestive process Appetite ISln short aroused and a zest for a meal Is regarded as a sign of satisfactory health Tho drinking of bitters associated unfortunately as it always is with al cohol In some form thus easily be comes a habit The choice of the bit ters for the purpose Is so that now men may be found calUngIfor soda water and quinine and the demand is not likely to bo refused by the managers of a department which Is profitable Vermouth is the favorite with a great many and a considerable quan tity Is consumed at golf clubs tho drinker of it being quite unconscious of tho fact as described in our text books that oil of wormwood Is a convulsive poison We may not unreasonably expect gentian calumba chtretta and medica on the athletes drinking bar If this after all does not constitute a drug habit we arefvery much mistaken- In disease bitters are a powerful aid for they are tonics increasing appetite and encouraging the assimila tion of food In health they may eas ily prove to bo mlsclevous and bo pro ductive of evil rather than of good t they will Irritate the stomach and In duce Indigestion The constant stimulation of healthy glands which act normally without so to speak any call for whipping must sooner or I later lead to fatigue ot the digestive organs which might easily It a train of unpleasant healthIdicating a lowering of the standard It is with bitters as alcohol both are drugs the chronic and excessive indulgence in drugs I does not as a rule help to maintain bodyWhen guish between use and abuse his safe course is to be abstemious DOES SALT MAKE DRUNKARDSii If Contentions of Colorado Physician Are Correct Drink Problem Is Easy of Solution If the contentions of a Colorado physician are correct the drink prob lem can be solved without recourse to legislation of any kind Dr Beeson of Calclto declares that excess of salt In the average American household dietary is tho cause of drunkenness He points out that the taste for salt is acquired and animals and primi tive man never take salt during the I period of digestion of food Experiments at Colorado university have shown that a diet containing one flfih of one per cent of salt aided digestion by from one to two bours while G Increasing the proportion to three filths of one per cent lengthened tho normal time by two or three hours The American average of almost 2 K per cent Is BO vastly in excess of all reason that the blood is surcharged with salt and its power of digestion and assimilation is weakened This 1 extra salt In the blood Is the cause of thirst The genoral excessive ape petite for salt causes acute Indiges tlon and Dr Becso Insists that indigestion is the greatest cause of drunk enness He even goes so far as to say that an excessive salt diet may make n child an invalid a criminal or a lunatic Perhaps this is a little beyond reason but there certainly seems to be a scientific ground for curtailing tho salt allowance And disco very of a scientific cause for drunkenness a the consequent remedy and ndfwill open up a short cut to sobriety beyond the wildest dreamli- of prohibition Stop Safe of Peyote Bean The American and Mexican govern ments It Is learned from a Mexican of fleer will
