Bj'limiting its session, to three days, the least time possible under the law, and by confining its action to subjects immediately growingoutof or connected with tlje flood, and by cutting do^n the. employees to the lowest possible limit, the Legislature has gone far to rehabilitate itself in the esteem and "respect of the Slate, The fact that . It was already organized and that (he- members were acquainied v.iih one •another had more to do with the liroippt, and orderly dispatch of its business th^n anything else, and giic-s to show that the Sta^c would be grt-at- ly the gainer if members of the lature were elected for four years, half being chosen at one election and iialf at the next. A good deal of criticism is l)einfr indulged, chiefly by the Kansas City papers, because the Legislature failed to make a direct appropriation for the relief of the flood sufferers. The Register is not disposed to join in this ' criticism. If the Legislature had been called the first' day of June;- the day the flood reached its climax, it wouhl have been perfectly proper for it \o have voted an appropriation to meet the emergency. But ii was not called on i that day. The emergency was there. Thousands of people were witiiout food or shelter. Prirate generosity .came at once to their rescue. Among all the thousands who wore arc asking for is to be enabled to help oui'selves. We want authority to borrow money to rebuild our bridges, wo want to be permitted to rebate tlie taxes on damaged property, and wc want to be perrnitted to borrow money to clean up the streets and cariy the city government until our peopio are again able to pay their taxes." The same kind of spirit was shown by the people of Lawrence and Tdpika and the whole Kaw v&lley. There was not a delegation nor an individual from any point in the State asking the Legislature to appropriate moniiy to pay for the damage the flood had done. The Register does not share the feeling, cither, that Kansas will sulfer ii; reputation becauise outside help has been accepted. When Johnstown wa.* swept away the reputation of Pennsylvania,—a State many times,-.icher I'nan Kansas,—was not hurt because outfiido aid to the value of many thousands of dollars vj|s asked and ac•;.,p!^'''- The standing of Texas was not lowered because other States hurried money ar.d Gaivoston •.viien that city was swept by a tidal wave. .-^Tid a (' ousaiid similar in- .'-.lancos might be cited, for the Ameri(an ,)e iplj are impulsive and generous and whenever a great disast-jr ovtr- iake.s nny part of the country the rc :.pon5c is almost instirictive, just as a man without any conscious effort of the wiM v.-ould reach out his hanQ to r.ave a child that was falling. No fault ! will bo found with Kansas because in an hour of overpowering calamity the help instinctively and impulsively extended by her neighbors was receivetH ment. Let us rather encourage that with gratitude and not rejected. nis A SATURDAY SERMON. (Cniiti^ibuted by L. C." H,) It is the way a man spends leisure .time that saves him or sends him to the dogs. As a mle the securing of a good job is the matter of prime importance with men; and it is true that a man seldom amounts driven from their homes we have not | ,o anything . until he has a suitable heard of one who even missel a raenl.| occupation and steady work. A man Not Only food and shelter, but cloth- cannot really enjoy life until he has lag was p.-ovided in abundance. an-1jcho.sen a calling and set his energy the-people were taken care of uu;il|to ^-crk to fulfill it. Fortunate Is the: the waters subsided and ' they were' „an who has a good calling and plenty able to return to their homes. Those ^ork. Who had lost everything were pro-| But life Is more than work and vlded with a iiousekeeping outfit, in-'greater than a calling. Men find that itludlng beds and bedding, table.! order to live the full life t^ey need chairs and stove. Others were helped according to their neeJs. leisure. The rise of large industrial institutions has k tendency to! deprive, All this had been done before the' ,15^11 of this necessity. When | a large' Legislature was called. The great! pjass of men come to. be dependent emergency hah been met. In the hour of their dire need, when the people coultl. not help themselves, they had been, Ihelped. There was no lqngc>r any deniand for food or shelter or gcllthing.. The only thing that could have been done with a direct appropriation; had one been* made this week, would have been to ijse it to reim- upon any industry, the disposition on the part of stockholders to got all that is possible out of |he enterprise leads io long hours and unsatisfactory conditions of labor. I'One of the most humanitarian movements in recent years has been t6e effort to reduce the hours of labor among working men and women. If Unionism had con^e when laboring men must consider, not only the question of shorter hours, higher wages, and more satisfactory conditions, but also the proper use o^ the greater leisure which they have already secured. In this as la all their legitimate efforts they ought to have the backing of the larger public. The man who has a good congenial home will find but little trouble in solving the question^ of the use of the "time that he can call his own.'' Good home life" is the most wholesome and satisfying thing on earth. But many people do not have homes and some dp not have congenial homes, floreo^er,-young people w^ant outside companionship and recreation. The crowds of people on the streets at certain hours of the day and at places of public amusement testify- to the fact that large numbers of people are spending much of their leisure outside their homes. How little there Is that Is really good and satisfying to supply their wants! '; Among the obligations that rest upon a community, by no means the lightest. Is the duty of providing proper places and means of amusement and self-improvement. The devil is much more active than Christian; people In providing for men'S' leisure. Right here Is where he gets In his best w^ork. In vain Jo we keep our churches open on Sunday if we allow the devil to entertain people diiring their leisure hours on week days. Nor is the thing for Christian people to do simply to keep denouncing wrong forms of amuse- burse the individual losses that had (accomplished nothing elsethestruggles through which it has passed ant^tbe 'cost and suffering it has entailed might'well be • regarded as worth Wihile. But having secured xQore leisure I the question arises, how to use It so il'Iie ataeude of the snffe'rers them- that it may b^a blessing rather than '^ves'tbrooghouij the lentlre prdeal.^a detriment; - for whil« leisure give^ "beea sustained. The people did not expect this, they did not ask jt, ' ^onld have been beyond the proyinjpe 'i)f the 3tate tjo; grant it, to say nothing off - the nttw impossibility of equitably distributing it. ^ u;.^^^ ~ ^>j*':been. 01^ of nanly' independence J men the opportunity, for true' enjoT^ ^--'kwii^Mams^^ '%B1£-%1 P that Is Ije-Jfaient and reaction. «n4'f(v the de* which Is legitimate and provide still better things. Let us Christianize the games that are good and interesting; eliminate their evil, features. Let us go where people go, and create a better atmosphere. Let us make better ufee .of our park in the square, encourage our band, and make more account of the uplifting and entertaining powier of mucic, take our friends .to the Rest Room and spend some time th^e. Better library facilities and a Young Men's Christian Association building are possibilities if we have earnest and determined leadership and generous giving by those! who are able. But in the end the responsibility for the use of leisure rests upon the individual himself. There are good companions, for those who really wa.nt them. There are good' homes wiibin the roach of the most men if they will but do their part. There is more danger- of too much araase- ment than of too little. Good reading may be secured by those who want it. A'man may rise during his leisure' hours to greater heights and finer joys or may sink to deeper degradation and keener misery. ' An independent telephone company has crowded the Bell so hard at Win- field'that it has been obliged to cut the rate for 'phones to fifty cents a month. To the credit of the people it is reported that they have not bit at' this bait. The t^uble with the Bell Is tjjat itliaa tried to get It all. KANSAS NOTES. r Eureka is to have a new $10,000 opera house. The man who has hs house "artis- , tically" painted lives at Eureka. The correspondence from Pea Ridge in the Holton Recorder should be called peanuts. An agent sold fifteen zithers at Everest last week. The people there must be easy. A nine year old girl of Sycamore w^as Injured badly last week while playing whip cracker. Erie is .noted as being ^ the best merry-go-round town In the sate. -Every town has its virtues. A mitten factory w^ill likely be started at Clyde as' it Is understood the promoters have been given the glad hand. At the Kansas towns where the Mormons have recently visited a roil call of the young ladies Is taken after tihelr. departiire. Twenty-two tank builSers have arrived at Neodesha to go to work on the big tanks being built there by the Standard Oil Co; The funeral directors of itansas met at Leavenworth Wednesday and discussed the best ways and means io dispose of the dead. Hobson, of kissing fame, spoke at Winfield last week, but it is understood that he was not bothered by any of the girls there. * Baby shoys seem to be getting pop.i- lar. One was held at Winfield last week and the Courier says nearly every baby in town was entered. Greenwood county has 68,014 cattle. Last year Greenwood county led ^ll the counties in the state by a small majority but this year shows on Increase of 14,106 over last year, R, H. Cadwallader, of the Louisburg Herald, has taken in a partner owing to Increase of business at his newspaper plant and nursery. The young man weighed about eight pounds .-.t birth. ' . Parsons is to have two telephone companies which according to the papers there seems to suit the majority of the bu^ness men. If the service Is as poor at Parsons as It is in most Kansas towns a little competition will • probably be a. good thing. A Shawnee girl named Spink has just married aniOklahoiha man named Spunk.
