The malcontents In the Senate, led by that arch conspirator, Lodge, would have seen that this country go down In oblivion If by so doing they could discredit President Wilson; und tills Is the legitimate result. As a sample of the eronoinv practiced by the present state administration which has levied almost twice the previous tax on the people of the state, we quote the following from the state auditor: "We have at this time in the state house a stenographer for the medical board of registration drawing a salary of $1H0 a month who does not have to exceed one gooil day's work a month; who could handle the records of all ten boards and there Is not the least reason In the world whv this econ omy should not be Introduced at once." At Kansas City the other day a local prlntshop was raided bv the authorities and the property confiscated on the charge that It was printing lewd, salacious and obscene matter In a publication called Spotlight; and In the trial of the case the attorney for the defense placed ilWlfl M fffi&' ' 1 Battery Truths That Willard Threaded Huh-ber Insulation can be depended upon to outlast the battery plates. Knds the expense of wood-separator replacement. That wwid separator may seem cheaper at the beginning but insulation Is always cheap er In the end. That our responsibility to you lasts as long as your battery Is In service. That the Willard Threaded Rubber Battery is the highest point In battery achievement. We're here to tell you about It the only battery with Threaded Rubber Insulation. Olden Buick Co. Valley Falls, Kans. Willard Batteries witnesses on the stand and made them admit that the Star, Post and Journal, printed Just as lewd, lascivious and obscene stories In their news columns as the Spotlight had been arrested for, but they were not about the same persons. If one Is looking for lewd, Inscivlous and obscene stories he need go no farther than the average big dally papers and the bigger the dirtier. Just as a sample of the sort of government the republicans under the leadeivhlp of Henry Allen and his political henchmen arc loading on the taxpayers of the state we call attention to the fact that the entire cost of the Slate Supreme Court with Its seven Justices and eighteen employes Is $H8.7tlO while (iovernor Allen's pets the Industrial court and public utilities commission brought Into existence for the sole purpose of making soft berths for the Governors pets has seventy employes and an appropriation of $21!. 418.5.'! almost u quarter of a million dollars and did anyone ever hear of any good thing coming out of either of these political hotbeds-their ex-lutnneo hufl heen marked bv an in crease In expense for whatever they touched, is It any woncier laxes are the highest ever known with all political debts to pay? Governor Allen told a Minneapolis audience one truth nt least when he was discussing the question of Capital and tabor, and In referring to the oft repeateil lie that labor (of course "union labor Is always meant) creates all wealth, called attention to the fact that If this were true China would be the wealthiest nation on earth for thev had about ten laborers to any other country's one. The fact of the matter is that wealth the big things of earth would never have been created had It not heen for the brains of the men who are listed as capitalists big business employers the men who had the vision of big things nnil were willing to risk their all of capital and brains and time to make this come true us opposed to the men listed as laborers who desired a sure thing ", a few hours on the job and a sure check at night. And this willingness to take a chance on the tmrt of the malorltv of the people of this I'nlted States Is what makes it the a-reatest nation on earth to-day; but If the ' labor unions have their way about It all will be reduced to the present condition of Russia and China. There is a great commotion over the country about the five or six million unemployed about the lack of purchasers of coal about the short age of freight shipments etc.; and conventions are called and commit tees appointed to "Investigate" the conditions and suggest remedies. "What fools these mortals be." If the people who are out of employ ment demanding two to ten dollars a day will get busy at whatever they can find to do, at whatever wage thev can get; If the coal operators will bring down their prices to some thing like before the war: If the rail road will cut their rates to corres pond with the cut In wages; then and not tell then will the country got back on an even keel. Rut Just so long as walking delegates of la bor unions maintain their attitude of the dog In the manger so long as big business refuses to make the needed concessions so long as every last "son-of-a-gun" of the entire population wantH the "other fellow" to be the goat, present conditions will continue.

Cherry Trees In Bloom Rev. Chas. H. Kimball reports that three of his cherry trees are now In bloom a pretty but rare sight. The trees, which In the early spring had suffered from a visit by Jack Prost, had dropped their leaves In mid summer, as In the Pall, are now, since the late summer rains have become dressed up In a new garb of leaf and bloom, creating quite a surprise In the orchard. The trees may have made a nils take In the season, as nature did last spring, and fall a victim to old Jack again. But anyhow they are in bloom again gentle Susie.
