Tbt-iMople who hare been rewling the lola Register for the past twenty y^ars or so will not need to be told that Frederick Funston, Brigadier General U. S. A., can write as well as flgbt. In the flies of this paper will ite. ^eiind letters over his signature from Death Valley and Alaska and Cuba flu^ California and Uie Philippines. And they all make "mighty in ^erestlng reading." Thero is no •training tor effect in any of them, •od yet tbe effect is there. Whether it is a description of natural scenery, or the story of a battle, or a narrative Of purely personal experience, the reader follows-it with equal ease and with unvarying enjoyment. AH his old friends, therefore, will ne«d no argument to be assured that .a care treat Is in store for anybody who picks up this new book of his, "Memories of Two Wars," which has jngt cbine fro mthe press of Scrlb- BfTB and is on sale In all the book Stores. In the first place the story this fibbk has to tell is so inherently ^Ucfn^tini; that it could hardly bo ypglled yfHh any son of telling. And in .the second place it Is so well told Ulitt it would be read with delight M.it wfere not half,so Interesting as it is. .The style is as simple and di- rfeet and as free from affectation as that of the long-ago Register letters, —the style of a writer who thinks itrajght. and sees clearly and tells his itOTjr with no more self-consclous- Meu than he would hare if talking to a (riepdat his own fireside. Indeed •those who know him well and have l|Bt«ned with delight while he told amneof his experiences will find hira- ttit saying often as be reads the book: "That sounds just like 'Fred'." ]^r'the most part, of course tbe narrative Tuna along in a serious vein, for it is tilling of serious things, jput jhe Funston humor cannot be irholly .repressed, and it flashes out In what, to those who do not know t^e writer, must sometime seem the noBt v&expected places. There is that •toiqr-of the dog, to mention just one iBStance; which was the mascot of Coipliay G, which went through all , tjbi. .^gjiting without a scratch "but after his return home he indiscreetly bit. Cottey vine's police force in the leg and was promptly shot, an end- started a riot." There are no end of good gtories of courage and daring: or at ' ItidicrotiS iniship, the writer never apoliing one of these latter because he happened himself. lo hav been the victim. But this "Memories of Two Wars is very much more than a personal narrative. It is history. Nobpdy else lias told so, well the story of the Cuban Insurrection from the Cuban side of the battle lines adn so far as our information goes nobody has made relcord of the .War in the Philippines so careful and accurate and comprehensive! The home friends of Gen Funston will read the l>ook with spec iai interest, of course, because of their persona] knowledge of and regard for and pride in him. But it may well be read, and It will be read, by thousands who have no personal ac quaintancc with him because of the vivid picture it gives of events which changed ^th& -map Of the world and which reshaped for all time to come the destiny of the Great Republic. It is a notable contribution to the literature of our times and deserves the place it will have in every uij-to-date public and private library. Henry Allen sayff that the "cleanup" 'of Wichita which was undertaken by the Goveriior's special attorney under tlie itorsonal direction of th( Governor, with a great blowing of trumjH 'ts, was all a fake, that it didn't cost the jointists or sitloon men any money or put any of them out. of business. And the same story comes in the way of a news dispatch from Columbus, to the effect that the law enforcement campaign conducted in Cherokee county by direction of the Governor, was all humbug and false pretense and didn't accomplish anything, that while scores of jointists were arrested not one of thcni was put in jail or put out of business. Arc these Wichita and Columbus reports true, or is somebody "trying to slander the Governor? What have the administration papers to say about it? What is the Governor's side of the story? If good rrtads are snch fine things why not keep them in rejiair? About fifteen or twenty years ago the government built what is known as the rock road leading to Haskell. Tho city nor the county nor the township have kept it In repair. If we will not keep in repair the roads we have how can we hope to get new ones?—Lawrence Journal. The Journal has pointed out one of the very serious objections to Government road building. What has happened at Lawrence is the nearly universal experience. When the Government builds a road the local authorities wash their hands of it and it goe.s to" pieces. If the Government should go into the road building business generally the burden upon the National treasury would very soon make the annual war budget look like pin money. gresf'Jfrorfnhe.'Wiarge of e;^^*-fr*^-it**-f-ii^**?* gance in sjiendintf money for the army.

Imperialism was -the "Paramount Issuo" w^lth the Democratic party no longer ago than 1900. But you may have observed that although thcrr has be6n a Democratic majority in the House siiicQ last March not word has been said in any way altering the Republican program in the management of our Island possesa- ions. Some co-incidonces arc (jucrr. A ear or so ago a minister at WillinmK burg. Franklin county, was found guilty of deserting his wile and running away with a young girl of hie congregation. And. now it appears that his successor, a married man with grown children, is out of town for the reason that a young man with very pretty wife has threatened to shoot him If he ever comes back. Globe-Democrat: "It must be gratifying to tbe soul of the peerless leader in Nebraska to find that in a ne\ys- paper poll of thousands of Ohio Democrats as to their choice of presidential candidates, 39 per cent were for him and only 28 per cent for Harmon. This victory over Harmon in rils own state is a star In a cloudy night at Uncoln." Atchison Globe: Harry Root, who travels over the state for the Topeka Journal says he hasn't heard three men express themselves in favor of a special session of the legislature, although he has ulked to many on the subject.

But we shalii never believe that he intends to neglect his great work in the Senate for a single day. 'Aisidc from the fact that hfe would have to entrust the leadership 6f the Progressives to Mr. Cummins 6r Mr. Clapp. both of whoiti he suspects- of being deficient in hero worship, Mr. LaFol- Icttc always puts duty before his personal or politlcitl'fortifnes. He has hever been able to train his conscience to disregard what is duo his constituents Aiid the country. Devotion to the public service Is the keynote of an autobiography which lie is publishing. At the risk of his i)rl- vate interests and the sacrifice of his health .Mr. LaFollette toiled through the dog days In Washington to pnint in subdued colors the picturo of .-: Statesman with a coiiscieneo «o sensitive and responsive that hi' p:ivf his nights as well as his days to tiio welfare of the people. This Is tin- Ki'eal lesson of the autoblograiihy. Therefore we are warnuil'vi in saying that .Mr. l.aFollettp will never leave Washington to answer anil confound Mr. Taft in the long suffering West until Congress adjourns for the holidays. Duty first, i)lpasure and profit afterward. What the SiMiator docs with his Christmas recess is his own business. It is usually a season of innocence and mirth, when ih-^ gravest men relax, enjoy the good things of life and are children at heart again. Perhaps Little Hob wlio never relaxes and is too worn with solicitude for the Republic to play, may believe that the "present crisis" demands that he go crying into the wilderness. Rut politics and Christmas do not mix well and he is mor«' likely to be regarded as a bore than a prophet.

Except upon stated occasions, the mikado is aa Inrisible and well nigh as inaccessible* as the sun goddess amid the hereditary treasures of the Ise "shrine.

Unlike the reigning houses of Austria, Russia and Prussia, the house of Japan^ which, thanks to the system of plural wives and the custom of adoption, has survived so many hundred years I in an apparently unbroken line, has no family name and the given names of. its members are not by any means what they seem to be or to mean upon a superficial examination. The Mikado Mltsuhito is not the "meek man" nor is Prince Haru a "vcrdiint" or "sprinKliko prinrc."

In China, when a native family sits down to dine, the men of the household and the male guests, if there he any, arc served first. Their food comes to them steaming hot. The w .omen must wait until later to be served, and by that time tbe food has grown cooler. The men commence to eat immediately the dishes of steaming hot! food are set before them. Rice, cow peas and other things are bolted hot. The women have to be satisfied with only lukewani dishes. So much for etiquette. Mow for the consequences. In China cancer of the oesophagus, or throat. Is common among men.' Among Chinese women the disease ia very rare; practically unknown. 411 of this, and more, waa reported by Dr. E. D.
