It was through the link with l^in- coln supplied by the brother whom she had helped to give his chance in the world that Lydia Harlan Snow. In 1862. came to Kansas with her husband and their brood of little chiidn-n to make her place in another frontier. It was a good, place for an Indian agent to keep busy with some thousands of restless and often unruly Osages, but It was not a good place to school children. And so after a year or two of it the mother with her children removed to Baldwin, the father coming to them when lie could.—putting his shoulder to the town and the then new and struggling (ollego during the brief visits, and meanwhile keeping his restless Osag­ es In proper 8ubj«>clIon. But the time came when the Indians had to move on. By that time Neosho Fails had grown from an Indian agency into a smart village with dreams of growing Into a still smarter city. Major Snow was the head of things there, with all sorts of enterprises and undertakings growing under bis strong hands, and so the family came back from Baldwin and took the liiace which was theirs and which they have kept to this day.

AMfar STANDARD OIL COMPANY This paper will have some comment to make on the man who is elected Governor of Kansas,—if anybody ever flnds out who that is. their rights. This movement for sn- rlal Justice and greater freedom iti self-government is going on all over the world today; and this In fact is one of the most ho |M 'ful signs of the limes. The Balkan peninsula is made up of several atules: Bulgaria, Montenegro. .Macedonia. Thrace. Bosnia. Her- zegovlnia, Servlu. These people are Christians—Roman Catholics. Greek Catholics, with here and there Protestants, the result of. missionary effort. It .once belonged to .Turkey. The beginiiing of the present trohble goes back to 1878, when Russia forccii from Turkey, local self-government for thes<> iieoples, and u promise of reform in the general or Turkish government. Kngland was not satlsfled with the treaty of San Stefano. which was made in .March. 1878: and in June called the Congress of Berlin. This Congress turned back two-thirds ^of this territory, including Thrace and Macedonia, to the direct iwlltical and military rule of the Sultan. This was against the bitter protest of Mr. Glad stone. ComAenling on this treaty. Lord Salisbury in bis famous dispatch remarked: "Whether u.oe will be made of this—probably the last—op|)or- tunity which has thus been obtained for Turkey by the interference of the iwwers of Kuro|>e, and of England in particular, or whether it is to be thrown away, will depend upon the sincerity with which Turkish statesmen now address themselves to the duites of good government and the task of reform." Turkey promised to reform but nev. er even pretended to fultiil her promise. The great powers of Europe winked at this violation of treaty obligations, for the reason that they could not agree among themselves as to how the Turkish proviBlons should be divided in Case the Turk was driven out of Europe. Russia wanted to reach the sea by Constantinople. Kng land was not willing to allow Russia to reach salt water . navigable the year aroutul. Germany had her ambitions and s-o the miserable farce has gone on for thirty years, !n which thirty thousand peo|)le have been murdered. Hopes were entertain*d that when the young Turk secured control of the old Ottoman Empire, he would carry out tiieie reforms. He has utterly failed to do so; and this failure has brought .these scattered and heretofore independent provinces, allied by blood and religion, together with Greece, Into an api)arentiy perfect understanding, it was either outonoroy. that Is, 8elf -go\eminent, or the Turk must go. It is refreshing to rend the claims and demands of th^se people struggling for their liberty and rights.

If yuu doubt the pulrtty of the water, the owner will teil you that he would bet his life on it. that there is no purer | water in the country, and that is al bet which is frequently paid. Whether we want ro or not we gamble our liighest stake on our water supply. Many people throughout the farming districts are having -wells or cisterns dug or a well dug with a view of having It where the surroundings will be the most sanitary. The other three-fourths will pay no attention whatever to this, but will consider convenience only. The so-called malaria, typhoid and many cases that are caileil bilious attacks or summer diarrhoea and dysentary are very of-; ten due to contaminated drinking ticulur siwjl for n well, replied that it was handy. He listened doubtfully 1 to a tirade dr criticism of his well, but answered. "Those who ure always afraid of diseases are the ones wha always get them." On this cheiurful bit of optimism he. had buried his wife and two daughters, who apparently died because they were afraid of his well. Nor is .he-a rare exception. All over the United States ithere ore innumerable wells in similar locations. If the water is very cold and clear it is often taken as proof of purity. It is cold and pleasant to drinli, bu» this is no exide.nce that impurities are not oozing into it from various sources. A spring Is commonly believed to be unquestionably pure and always to be preferred to a well. Most springs are; the very fact that they gush out of the earth indicates purity and means that impurities from neacby have difficulty In forcing them^Ives into the body of auh- terranean water, from wliich tbe- ! spring takes its source. However more than one charming little spring has been traced to a source never Ibuilt by nature. An overburdened water. So many wells and cisterns, from 1^.^83 p^, will sometimes "be "the" cause which the drinking water and water used for cooIUng are taken, are often located in a back porch or room, or | within a few feet of the kitchen door or possibly within 10 or 20 feet of out housesl such as pig styes, stables and of an innocent little spring, perhaps quite a distance from its parent.
