A story wont the rounds of tliC newspapers a few dajs ago to tlie effect that Mr. George Clark, ox-Secretary of State, had bough! from Mr, E. P. Greer the Wih|ieUl Courier. A "day later there ToHowed a di.ifiafch that liic deal was off. And thj^rcby hang.; a very interesting and signlfi- cani tale of a man and a newspaper, which we trust all the people at interest will panlon thC :nosiEicr for lelling. Sonic woeiws ago. through a frie.-id at Winfiehl, .Mr. Clark made .Air. Gr(;>cr an offer for the Courier. .^ft -.T due considcracion the offer wa.s ar- cepled and, Mr. Clark went to Winfield to clo«6 the deal. Arriving there Mr. Greer met hiiu in the ofilce of . T m\uual friend and stalled to h'un hi.. understanding of the offer. Upon being answorenl that his un<lerstand'i!;x was correct, ho n plie 1 "The patier i- yours." and arrangiinenis were then made for another meeting at ton o'clock the ne .\t day to draw up the necessary j)apers. The thre^e men met at (he time agreed the next day. Imi they did not draw up any i)apers. For tin? fir-i iwordg of Mr. Greer were: "Ge-org?. its all off. I can't do it." Ami then ho told why.' He had thought at fir.^t that hb could sell the Courier as easily as! any other property that he owned. He had large interests elsewhere that took most < of lyis lime "and he couid give but little personal attention to his papier, and so he had concluded to sell it. The offer Mr." Clark made WT.S all he thought it was worth. But when the papecs were all ready to! sign and bo began to realize that 1:'.'| was on tlje verge, of actually tunun;: tlie Courier over tQ someone else, he didn't feel coijiforlabic. And so he talked it over with his wife. They recalled the way in which he had started as a "devil" in thci o3ico thirty years ago. and learned l^is trade, and the slow steps by which he had been able to make and save enou,gTi money t |0 buy the paper: and they remembered the pride of his father and mother —now aslciep on the hillside,—when he became the editor of the Courier; and how put of its earnings they had built their, home;, atid—"and the short of it is." said Mr. i Greer v.'ilh tears filling his .eyes, "I have found out there, are some things a man owns that he cannot sell." All of which may sound "to the Greeks.; foolishness." But a man who has once wrai)ped his heartstrings around a newspaper will understand it perfectly easy. It is one of the peculiarities of the newspaper business that a man wfho is in it for the love of it comes t'o look upon the paper which he owns almost as if it were a living personalllty, with perceptions and sensibilities and emotions of its own. Indeed the public shard in this feeling to a certain degree, because they commend and criticise and discuss—and cuss—a newspaper by its name, often without any allusion at all to its editor, as if it had a conscious identity quite apart from that of the nian who owns or controlla U. Dut to the editor himself, this, feeling is many fold intensified. And the rea- .son is not hard to comprehend. When a man has put the very best that there is of his heart and mind Into a newspaper for twenty years, when he has given to it all the energies of his nature, when he had coddled it along through periods of depression as a father might nurse a child in its illness, when he has'defended it against niiack and has felt that at the same Huio it was defending liim,—what v.- ;nder is it that he should come to fe .l after awhile that it is bone of his bono and ilesh of his Ilesh. and should find ii nearly as hard Iq sell as would be one of his children? . , U i:- just about twenty years now .since Ed. Greer became owner of the Winfield Courier. And every true newspaper man will understand perfectly well why he cannot sell It,—and will hemor liim because he cannot. The greatest bank in the world *s to'be organized in New York. It is to have a capital of one hundred million dollars, and will make a .specialty of financing great enterprises. When it begins doing business the Bank of Englftid will have to take second j-ank among the world's great financial ii* stitutions. There was "talk .at Topcka Wednesday of sending out some special trains to bring in the sergeants-at-arms ami door keepers and superintendents of ventilation, but it was resolutely frowned down. It was urged.that for the short time the legislature was tc be in session they could hardly afford to leave their business. When Krcd Funsion was toting his wc:iry load up the icy trail of the Chil kc't j)as.> ten years a.go this spring w.'ijpsawing the boards with which to i;:i::] a l;oat to the frozen lake.=5 wailing in the swift and frigid current of the upper Yukon to guide that Bsnic boat, eating out his heart of lo :i03omene »£i; as the long months of the* Ar.ctic winter dragged heavily by. "he little thought," as romanclst pi:!.-, it. fliat the next time he visited Alaska it v.ould be as a Brigadier Gen oral of the ro .guI»r army in command of the entire territory. Wonderful things can happen to a thoroughbred .\:iierican in ten years. We l^rag a goad deal, and it i^ mostly justified. But in some particulars the record of other countries oiight to mike us ashamed. For example not one person was killed on a rallyvay in Great Britain last year. The railroads of this country, in that same year, slaughtered 8.588, besides injuring Ci,CC2. The contrast is shocking. We Want to Figure That PLUMBINQJOB For You. 5aUsfactlon i doaranteed. Reporting about the last big battle with, the Moros Captain Pershing says: "Too much cannot be said for the valor, the bravery, the courage, the coolness and nerve of the Aineri- can soldiers." It Is the old, old story. But because it is ol& we ought just the same to thank GoU for it and remember always ^to be proud of it. If Missouri Denaocrats •were supporting Attorney Ealk as ardently ais they have praised him, nobody else would We in the running over there for GOT- enior. But he is liklly to lie lieaten, for the very excellent-reaaoii^Vjeu by It was very nice of Emperor William, after spending an hoar and a half on board the Kearsarge, to cable President Roosevelt that the ship was all right. He is probably gladder than ever now thathe didn't bend the Monroe Doctrine to the- breaking point. The valued Kansas City Star is still engaged in telling the Governo.- and Kansas Legislature what kind of flood relief measure to enact. Being from Missouri, the Star feels that it i.s incumbent upon it to "show" the legislature the way out. Porto Rico is shipping to the United States nearly $1,000,000 worth of products monthly and buying about the .same amount in this country. A commerce of $24,000,000 a year with the island is a fine exhibit, and it is only a beginhing. Mr. Bryan might as well begin work on that walk-out, parting-of-the-ways speech he -will have to make at the next National Democratic convention. Iowa's refusal to re-afflrm the Kansa.s City platform settled that little matter. A North Topeka man, whose saving sense of humor has triumphed over the wreck ol his home, published this advertisement: "Found: A lot of extra ground, ^he owner ckn have by proving property and rem.oving it." Few governors are as lucky as Mr. Bailty, who, whenever he' Is in the least doubt as to the course he should pursue, has the Kansas City Star and Lawrence Gazette to fall back upon. An eighteen mlUion dollar drainage system is one of the penalties Ne-w Orleans will pay for having been built on a marsh below the level of the Mississippi river. [ Not So Worse. "Nero wasn't half so bad as he might have been," remarked the man ak he had been peeping into: ancient Jilstory. "But he was a tyrant," objected the party of the second part. "True," rejoined thfe other, "but suppose he had used a cohxet or an accordion as an instrument of torture Instead of a fiddjsr* Kansas City'aind Back^130 Round Special train via M.

Prof. Rosebush, of Florence, has purchased a newspaper In Missouri. He will not' find the business a bed of. roses even if ho is a bush. The story "His Last Hope Realized" which so many papers have been runr ning all this raontit is duo to die next Tuesday. The population of Piqua was decreased about twenty-five per cent thi-s week when five young men left their homes for the harvest fields. i I It is hard to get away from the dne of the Paola papers has just! dug u'p evidence that Charley Finch used to give "elocutionary readings" in that town. A Galena lady who has been away on a visit sent this telegram to her brotlior-in-law who was looking after the place during her absence:. VWill be home tomorrow, have the girl iwash without fail." Coffcyville is threatened with a race war. The school board established a separate school for the, colored stu-; dents but the fond parents have kick-: cd up a mess and say they will refuse to stand for it. O. E. Blake, who for years has conducted a shirt factory at Baldwin, wants to locate in some of the Kansas gas towns and is asking for free gas for three years. A freight car which had been through the fiood and which was loaded with "Force" was unloaded at Emporia \his week and the Republican says the odor arising was so str&ng that a person could hardly get within a block of the depot That's force sure enough.
