THE .SIIEllWOOD HILI- On the face of it llie jicnsion bill Introduced by Gen. Slurwood, a Democratic monibcr of Congrpss from Ohio, is a fair bill. H provides a pension of $15 a mouili to all honorably discharged ex-lnion soldiers who served 90 days, $20 to all who served six months. $23 to all who served nine months, $30 to all who served one year or longer. If such a bill had been proposed twenty, or perhaps even ten years af;o there would probably have been little objection-to it. On' the face of it, as we have said, it looks fair, for it is easy to argue that a man who served in the I'nion army a year or longer should have a bigger pension than one who served six months or three months. But there are several, things this bill does not take into account. One of them, and perlinps the chief one, is the fact that a pi-n.sion Is not pai<.' upon the theory that It compensates the soldier for services rendered on the field of battle. It is a recognition of that service, not compensation for St. because no man ran be comiiensat- ed In lenna of mere money for the risks a Midler runs. A pension if pnld In order that a man who bus served his country us a soldier In time of war shall not come to beggary and want. It is for the honor of the nation that it should not permit one who has offered his life for it to b'- come au object' of public or privaK charity. Another thing (he Sherwood' bill does not take into .icrount is the fad that comparatively fiw of the lonr service men jirc now living. His bil' comes too late to help the men for whom it professes to be most concerned. The great majority of o!o soldiers now remaining are those who went in as boys in tlie latter months of the war. And it may bc^ added that it took a pretty large aizcO bump of patriotism and pluck to seni" a boy into the ranks along in the summer and fall of 1SC4. The idea !li:i. war was a picnic had bei-n preiiy effectually disjielled by that time. There were too many men cripplinj; around in everj- neighborhood in the north with one leg or an emptj sleeve and the lists of the killed and 'Wounded In every new battle were too conspicuous in every newspaper to escape the attention of even the nidsi careless and reckless of boys. Thi^ is one of the reasons why the payment of equal pensions to those who served three years and to those whc served six or nine months appeals so strongly to the average sense of jus tice. But the main point is that it drawf lines of dlstincUon and discrimination among the old soldiers which have never be<*n drawn before, which ili<y do not draw themselves and which it is unfortunalfe should bo drawn at thja late day.

And if n^census of the Old Soldiers could be taken we have no doubt that an overwhelming majority of them would say that this principle should contliiuu throughout any new pension lesishitlon that Is contemph.ted. \V(t do no", believe they would say lii:it Tom .lone.s \.ho served nine months siiuuld rcctive but $2:t a month, while Ills neighbor Hill Smilh, wJio s<'rved ten months should have $25. T><» difference of a single day in length of service, uftder the Sherwood bill, nii.uht mean a diff-j erence of in a month in the amount of pension rrceivd.—.-^nd we don't j believe the Old Soldiers will think that is fair.

V DE.SKKVEO TKIlHrE TO flKTlS The last issue of the National Tribune in a front iwige artxle discussing the probability of pension legislation during the present session cf Congress, j)rints a portrait of Senator Curtis of Kansas, and has this to say about him: Senator Charles Ciirti^. of Kansas, hardly needs any words of ccmmeiida- lion to the readers of the .\'iilion:iJ Tribune. As a member of the if Uepres) niativ) s for IC yi-.^ra )f the Senate for livi> ycirs I:-' l;:is »eeii a Cfiiist;int, fi.iihful iiiid •nt frii'iid of thr vciirans. and did heroic service to secure til.' passrige of the Sulloway bill. H..' and Senators Scott. I;ick, niirnhain and Siiiooi •>ire constantly on duty, momentarily watching every o|iportuiiity to secure the pas.sag.' of the hill, and left nolh- •ng undone to that end. Senator Cur- tls's whole career has been on" of the utmost, straight-forwardness and sln- eerity in whatever lie unilertakes and in nothing is he more sincere and •arnest than in his advocacy of the •ause of the veterans. He spares no ime nor effort which will protyls*' n any way to advance tlicir Interests jnd no one knows this better than the eterans of Kansas, who have been he recipients of iniiiinvrable services o them. Senator Curtis is. forlunali'- y for the veterans, one of the raiik- ng members of the Committee on "ensions and we can rely m.on him loing everything possible for a htii oming with the greatest closeness to 'he provisions of the Sullow-.vy Iiili. Referring to the case in Oregon vhere the attempt to recall,a distri<!i iudge failed for the rea.'^on tha' •nough signers to the petition could lot be secured the Top"ka Cr;p:tii.l says: So far as it pors this Oregon rasi iinijily shows what advocates of the •'•call bf^lji've—that the average Amer can community is so conservative hat if will never recall a judge from he bench except under th" greaiesi ;)rovocation and for the best reasons. And in its saner days the Capital •vould have added: "And when thar ime of the greatest proiocation and 'Jie best reasons comes, the law pro- .ides a way by which a judg - may be impeached in an orderly manner, with ipportunity to confront his accusers, o examine under oath those who ,ear witness against him, and to have in the end the verdict of a fair and mpartlal court,—which is a vastly llfferent thing from being tried- in he ^wspapcrs and on the stump." Before you grf*' too much exeiled ihotlt the "scum from the cilles" working Blxl<'en hours a day in iJii sugar beef fields out in Colorado, wait until you are sure of the fads. In th:' iirsi place the •scum from the riiies" mighty seldom get Into ' tlK- country, and when they do they ar- not apt to work sixteen hours a day. In the second placo nearly all the beet sugar farms hre let by contract. That Is to say a man agrees to cultivate and harvest a crop of sugar beets Tor the man who owns the land at so much per acre. If he works loni; hours rather than hire somebody else to do part of the work that would seem to be his lookout. He Is working for himself. Remember tliat there are some big "interests'" that would be a heap better off if the be<'t sugar business In the I'nlted Stat«s v.ere broken down; and all this talk about "peonage" out in Colorado sounds very much like the first gun of their campaign. aiid what he did find was "on tin- contrary, (lulte I he reverse." lola never looked cleaner and more itrosiierous and in point of fact, e.\c<'[it at the very clinia:< of the boom, it nnver was in better business condition than ii (s'riL'hl now. Ami the pf(j]de who live lure are the ch'erriiUesl lot of folks you ever saw. Thi-re is nothing whaii-ver the mutti-r with lola. The trouble wiih M.-sdero se^'m."; !o I 'O (hat, like all other reformers for office' sake, he jiromised too much. .Vnioiig other tilings he gave the Mexicans to undersiaiid if they mad' him President he would drive the .\meri- cans out of the country. Of course he never intended to do anything of the kind, hut the people, who dearly hate the "Gringo," thought he did; so now it is "down with Mailero." It remains to be seen whether he it: strong eiiotigh to hold that which h«" was cunning enough to get. Calling attention to the fact that Governor Woodrow Wilson now f:iv- ors the Initiative and Referendum although ho was formerly very ninth opiiosed to them, the l^wrence Gazette excuses the apparent inconsisl- iicy by suggesting that when flie governor denounced these measures he thought the people were against them, and now, when he apiiroves thorn, he thinks the people are for them. There Is nothing like beiii}; fair ill lillle inat;( rs like this. .our coasts and drive our taierchant ships off the' sea. Inasmuch as about all the American law can do with a recalcitrant witness is to send him to Jail for contempt of court, the chances would Bcem to be that if the M^Namaras don't want to tell the grand jlury anything they will not have to. A Jail would liot have any terrors for a man already ordered to the penlnnilury for life. It is just as Important to encoui;age really good wholesome, high class plays as it Is to discourage cheap, trivial and degrading ones. A tlieatre is a business cnteriirise, noj a chari- tahie instituiiou, and the _ management of it has a right to judge what kind of plays the people w:vnt by the kind they patronize. And now comes the announcement that the S!;.ite Uoanl of He.'ilth is tc fix a standard for mince meat. Is there no way to put a stop th th«! pernicious .-ictivity of Old Doc Orumbine'.

Persil is the only washing compound with an Oxygen base, yet it sells for only 10 Cents. This means that Oxygen, the element that whitens and sweetens your clothes when they hang in the sunshine, will whiten and sweeten your clothes in the Tub. And Pei'sil does this as^ easily as the air and sunshine and as harmlessly, and for only 10 Gents. Persil cuts the time of washing in two. It cuts out labor altogether. Does away with rubbing.

He had heard that the gas had played out, that the factories had gone, and ail kind of hard luck stories, aod be r>-- iwcted to see the town down .^t the heel and down at the mouth tx-drar- gled as to its physical appearance and /ecttBuaendwl and sold by aU druggisu. discouraged as to iU sUte of mind.
