" Serving out a city sentence is real business now The opi>ortunity of taking lee hail, so often "mbraced by nimble-footwl offenders has been taken away. The city has employed Fr;<nk Cowan as a special officer to guard prisoners working out fines and it is the purpose of the commissioners to see tliat the sentence is carried out to the letter. Cowan is known as an officer who does not joku with his job and prisoners placed In his care will have to stay on the works until they are released by due process of law. Heretofore it lins Iwen the practice to turn city prisoners over to some city employe who had Jiot th< lime to look after them jiroperly and do his own work. This resulted in frequent escaiies.

The pay-as-you-go gas meters are in ise In many cities now and iliey are leclared to bo successful ami salis- actoiy. The mayor believes that \\w lest way out of the contentl .o 'ii over •he payiiwnt of ga.s bills in- office 'luildings is to put in these npw-fan- ^led meters and he will advoc ;ate the nlnn at the coniuiis.sion nievtihg th'i:< afternoon. , •"the controversy over the gas bill for the old court house buildipg is n sample of the trouble with wHIcli we •ire contending." said the mayor this morning. "It's a difficult niafter for, iny landlord to furnish gas to .tcuanc-s through the one meter and then arrange an equitable chai:g0.i for the •onsumers. We know that but under he present system. It's theiEJaly meth- ,id the city can follow. We W^juid have •10 way of knowing how nuifi&iitu ar.y single tenant consumed any raof^ than ! does the landlord and since he owns' •he building and receives the ri?ntal il 's up to him to provide a way;to fiir- nish his tenants heat and light, llow- ••ver if we can arrange to: install these pay-as-you-go meters all our • rouble will be over.

When the gaS^glves out. that's the signal for two more: dimes. In this way. every one pays for the service rendered him and no more or ess. The only objection is the cost cf tl:e meters.

Leon DIguet, who has been studying the state of the cochineal industry in Mexico for come time, that before many years have passed cochineal scarlet will hare become a thing of history only, like the Tyrian purple of antiquity. How many people are aware of 4he method of manufacture of this well- known dye. It is made from the dried female of the cdchineal Insects (coc­ cus cacti). They are gathered by 5 rushing thd branches of the nopal „ , , . . , actus, on which the Insects feed as ' soon as they be.gin to lay their eggs. S. D. ARNEnT President J. P. NIGH V. President H.

Accumulating money should not be the principal aim of life—nor should it be regarded with conteiupt. for it represents, to a great extent, the means to physical and mental comforts. The way in which a iv.aii^ uses money is perhaps one of the best tests of character. The finest qualities of human nature are cinerapll- fied in the right uses of money: Generosity, honesty. Justice and self-s.icrifice. A little sclf-sacriflc. a savings account_with this bank, and a deterininatipn to use your money right I by saving it) will soon accumulate a snug balance to your credit.

Kas., Dec. 11.—An ^almost deafening silence seems to be the re- .^ponse in Kansas to the thousi^nds of letters sent Into the state recently from Washington. D. C, by th^ "Progressive" Republican campaign committee boosting IjFolIette. Up to today more than a month since the let- tors be^an coming into the sfate, J. N". Uolley chairman of the Republican state central committee, has received just fifteen requests to call a-Presidential preference primary in Kansas. David Mulvane, Reimblican national committeeman for {(ansas, h9s received two letters urging the call. Total 17. The letters received said: "hard work will put Kansas safely in the" La Follette column," and "1 want to' suggest to you that you at oijce ur- [ gently request the st^te centrstl com-: mittee of your state to arrange for a Ptesidential preference primary election, which will provide nieanit for a i direct expression of choice for- President." > Naturally the question prises: "Where is that big La Follette- sentiment ?" It had an opi>ortm>ity,>b'y re- f^ponding to these letters to assert itself, but it has not djone so. Among the "Insurgent" leaders. Senator Bristow and William; Allen' White are the two most proinlnent who are laising lonely voices-in behalf of the WIscoDsiD.' man. some i-tates where I a PoII^ttc sentiment is strong, it has asserted itself, accord-i Ing to rei>Orts. by the La Follette clubsyiind They are then dessicated In ovens or killed with boiiing water. It has been estimated that one pound of cochineal contains no fewer than 70.000 distinct Insects. The color is brought out and fixed by chloride of tin. The Indians had cultivated the coccus cacti In pre- Columbian days, but the commercial possibilities of jthe insect seem to have been first realized by the Spaniards In 1518. - It was introduced into Europe about 1523, and Into India in 1795. The city of Oazaca was the center of the cochineal country in the days of Humboldt, but only a few plantations of the nopal cactus now remain- hence the fear that the dye will soon become a thine of the past, at any rate nnless some other substance Ii found on which to feed the insects. organisation of leagues ^ut no such organizations ha^e so farrshow-n their beads above the Feley IIdae:r Pllb. —Tonic la action. «inlclc in rjesults.
