ttDMENT B. PEA^K OrVES BEA. SONS iroB TJWINO FOB IT. T«Us of His ExietleBce hi 18»1<S Sesiilons. f / In 1890 I was eleAed by the good people of Allen county as their member in the house tjr '91. I knbw when I B£ked for the oftice the salary was Very meagre and fbund It truly so. Upon the assembling of the legislature I tried to find sonde place to sleep and board that would size down to the .pay. I say size down, because it was ino trouble to size iip. I found it simp- Jy _lmpos.'5lble to get a decent place io live^ for the pay resceived. . There was a good deal of inquiry among members as to how cheap we Could live. FiniUy Mr. York from Rollins county, says. "Boys I have It. JThere is a short; order restaurant flown on Kansas | avenue (giving the ,*ititober) where you can get three big ipAflcakes. butter ^nd molasses for ten idfeirts, and by eatikg a good bit of <5o- {lasSes you can get what will pass for / a iheal. I have tried it." \ I tried it myself, so I know. There .Ijvas another placcj farther down where . .a..good dinner was advertised for ten ./ cents, but oh my. Jone meal did you for ' 4fionth. I But you had to have some place to slMp. You could not get a room and b«a for les-s than! two doJians n week. Sofhe times Iwo memberfl would go to- gnther .fo make the expense less. Often members would go some place ^here tHey could get a dish of soup and .crackers for ten cents which if6\\\6 toe the wfclole mea'. because it W ^eli ^ap. rTberfe was a place near the corner tit NIfath street on the west side of Kansas avenue^ i But why should J teH bore of the straights (he members - n^ete. put to to come out even. Some Ad riot try it and of rourse went behind, hearly one one did. .Three dollars ^ a day might have doafe when Ranbas became a state, nfelirly titty yeari ago. Now the state rich' and ablel, and lo scrimp the who. who make her laws to three dollars a day and limit lo fifty days is iidt ,fair compensation for the work aitd expense incurred. I was always ilmre sixty days not counting the time going and coming. > -"WTifen it is considered that you must giVe-neaxly two I months to the cam- ptdg |n and the expense unavoidably in- fl^fred.-the $150 allowed dwindles out of sight but not out of mind. f ! A.ldrge majority of the men who fldinpofie (he )aw,-making power of the State are comparatively poor men, as a;.canvas of both the Douglass and DunBftiore houses showed in '93, to ascertain how maiiy must have help in order to stay in Topeka during the ''Lewelling war," until such times as (hey could draw (hPir pay from, (he state. The propofasd amendment lo (he constitution to pay each member $500 Is none too much, whether they sit 100 or 200 days, they do not get any more, and when the members know their pay is the same, however long or shon the slay there, they will not _ stay a day longer than is necessary. " I for one do not believe that the people of Kalnsas. when they understand It. want their law makers to serve tite state Without proper compensation. Another thing; adequate pay would ' do away with the excuses for the petty grafts that now iPi:;gvail when the legls lature i .s in session. Another thing is it would prevent to a great extent hasty legislation, which is often bad legislation, giving more time for the prop er consideration of measures before it. I myself have voted at one time on all the way from five to twenty hills, done because the time for adjournment was so short they could not be * voted .on separatply as the constitution requires. The thing for the people of Kansas who believe in fair pay should vote for the ^proposed amendment. It Is humiliating to write some of the things I have written, but everything set down here Is the truth, and paore could be added. How they hold one representaUve for subscriptions to everything (hat is going and besides looking after things that a member has to do while not In session. Re.spectfully to the people of Kansas, L. B. PEARSON, Humboldt. Ka «5.. Oct. 23, 1908. CURES ETSBTBODT SHOULD KXOW : THIS PBESCBIPTION. Xakes Bhenmatlsm Tanisli, Also Aetk Promptly on th« Kidneys and Blad* der and Easily Made by Anyone.

Water in Branson Man's Gauge May or May Not Represent Total Rainfall. Bronson. kasi..'not. 24. )J)OS. To the Register:,— I placed a two gallon jar In the open last Monday evening before the rain. The water in \ it measures exactly eight inches this morning. Will Mr. ISchoppe please tell us through the Register if that represents eight inches of rainfall since Monday. Respectfully, W. H- IRELAND. When this communication was referred to William A. J. Schoppe, chler of the lola weather bureau, he said: "Whether the water In the jar exposed by Mr. -Ireland represents- eight inches of rainfall depends on the ex-" posure. The precipitation might havje been more or less, according to thp location of the jar. For instance, if the Jar was placed near a board, or near any object where the rainfall |mlght splash Into the jar. it would register more water than really fell. Then again, the wind might have caused sprays of water to dash into the jar, showing more rain in the receptacle than really fell. Without knowlpg the exact conditions under which the water In the. jar was biv talned I cannot answer definitely. Mr. Ireland's query. If hft will get a sbarpe edge jar. place it in the open, free from olijects of any kind and at an elevation of three or fottr feet, he will have almost an ideal 4?xpoHure and fairly accurate rain gitage." SHOWS AN INCREASE Registration of Voters Will Probably Be Heavier Than Last Spring. "I believe that the registration will be heavier this time was last spring," Charles E. Wendorff, city clerk, said this morning. "We ire checking over the books and will probably have the figures to announce tomorrow." i l-ast spring the total registry was 2,080. It is estimated that the present registry will show 2,200 voters. W. H. Hough- Goes Home. W. H. Hough has returned to Jiis home in 'Bridger,~Mont., after a fjpw days' visit with his parents.

Is comforting herself' with the reflsc- ttooitbat she didn't need It— Ottawa [Herald. hiiiimttiiriiri The story telling politician took down his spool this morning and un­ ravelled the following yarn: i A prominent Republican politician was rambling around the country a' few days ago and during his travels he stopped at the home of a Democratic friend of his. The Democrat was out at the barn doing his chorea and the Republican hunted him up. They discussed various matters from the popslble election of Brj-an or Taft down to the possible price of wheat n<»xt February. • Finally, the Republican noticed among the Df»mocrat's col- Irction of stock a mule without any ears. "What hpoamo of Vm?" askr-d tSe Rpiiubliran. •;Fro7r -u off last winter." replied the Democrat. '•\\T»y don't you provide him with a new pair?" "Provide him with a new pair! "How?" "Call on Bryan." "On Bryan? WTiaf has he got to do with supplying new ears to a mule?" "W.^ll. h«' has been making asses of the Democratic pnrty for twelve years and providing a new set of ears for a mule nugirt to bo an easy task for one so skilled." for the "oM man." and he has commenced on the men. He has quite a campaien speech when he approaches a voter. We wears a Taft button and when anyone joshes him about it and asks why he Is for Taft he repeats a little poem, a roast on Bryan in answer. In talking to his playmates at school he Is very adroit In his argument. He tells them that the election pf Taft means more tops, marbles and a more liberal Santa Clans. His talk is a winner and he has caused something of a landslide from Bryan among the kids at school. Speaking of kids and politics a can- di;lat»> down at Republican headquar- tf .'.s .said this morning that he had never known the time when the school children were so interested in 1 .1? campaign. He said the boys in the primary department of the city schools fight nearly every day over their party affiliations. /. O. Bol 'Say. pop," said Sheriff f. O. Bol Ijnjror's pood looking youngster a day or two ago. as he crawled up on his f.nthor'.<; lap. "Have you got any more fi" your cards?" >;.".

Why do you want to know. Is not one enoui;h for you?" "V /^K," replied the boy. "but you .sfp there are three or four kids down here that ain't got any and maybe they won't vote right." And so the sheriff gave him some cards and his small ,son Is now one of his best workers. He thinks ne has got the kid vote lined up solid Council Meet*!. The city council will meet in adjourned seskion Tuesday evening. Although it cannot be verified it Is rumored the question of changing the boundary lines of the city so that the Prime Western Spelter Company smel ters in this city will be outside of the city limits will be brought up for con sideration.
