"If'I were a young man, with life ' ahead of me, I think I'd chuck it," said Clarence Dair^w, in an interlieyr- on his seventy-fifth bkthday, anniversary. VThe odds _ - are too great against j'ou, and anyway the world is all wrong now- Sdays," i: ^ - iWeir, -svhy doesn't he : "chuck it" T now? i^obodyi is hindering him. And ; if life is not worth living at 20 how niuch |ess; worth Uvins is it at 75! For % great many years Clarence Darrow has given us what the aris: tocrats and high bro.vs call" a pain _ in the .neck. He has not been content tcf practice law as an ordinary ~ criminal lav.'yer. He has hunted for • cases With a political iinglc, in de- fendlni,' which he would have an • opportunity to express .sentiments ; he knows are peculiarly repugnant - to the average, law-abiding, country- loving ^fUnerican. He has delighted to shock people, partly his mentality is warped and his egotism Abnormally developed, and partly because, by saying shocking things he can* get onto new.spaper . front pages. .Hf^ has made a grent boast - of Independence and courage. Ke would 'have the world believe that he says what he thinks whether it is popular or not. while the ordin- _ ary run of folks are bound by con- vehtiori and either have no convictions or have not the coul-age of them. He has as.sumed that no man - can honestly support the Christian religion, for example, and that all who do suppo: t it are o.uacks. charlatans and hyJ3ocrites. He .has similarly assumed] that no honest man can sa-y anything good about the •United'States of America, and that ; anybody who does is a spineless ' blatherskite. In this latest interview he takes in mo?e territory and declares that the whole world, is all wrong. Very well.,; What has Clarence Darrow done ti) set it right? Has he ever . said a;sweet and wholesome word? ~ Has he ever preached a helpful, en- coura^g philosophy? Has he ever _ plTayed any other role than that of a sneering, destructive critic?. Hns he ever said anything or done anything ;to make the v.orld ea-sier or . pleasahter to live in? Clatence Darrow makes us tired! We went once to hear him lecture. We did not expect to agree with what lie said, but we did expect to hear a bad cause well argued, with orlgin^Uty of thought and perhaps sonie jbrllliancy of expression. What wc did hear was an hour and a half of supercilious commonplaces, statement^ in tiresome detail of platitudes; th^t haven't stirred a ripple - of himian interest in any mind for decays, nothing striking or original or constructive. Dull. "Unin- teres$ng. Stupid. AUfhis' later life Clarence Darrow has ibeen .suffering delusions' of -' grandeur. Instead of. fitting himself into the scheme of things as they fare he has assumed the attitude bf universal censor. Tlie world is a ^r thing in lus eyes. He sees nothmg in .systenis of philosophy, in organizations of religion, in schemes of government that is to be admired or approved. If only he Wjcre God how differently and how miich better would manage eveiything. Ths trutli is that in tlie brief sen- tehc4s above quoted Clarence Darrow confesses that he has made a pitiable mess of his lite. Seventy- five J^e.ars have been allotted to him. • and now in his old age he has nothing io show for them. No groat BCCQBipllshrcient to his credit. No high;' cause forwarded through his 'adv(^cy. No man encouraged tor inspired I through anything he has said :or done. And now at the end' of I6is long life nothing to say • yoxuk: iheu but to "chuck it," to fly waste areas. , The drouth has done a little job ;!of crop restriction which makes the domestic allotment look like a plket in comparison. This marginal area of wheflit land west of Dodge City with-its crop failure next yeai- will probably do more to stabilize the price of wheat in the United States than congress has done in 10 years. But ' at wb|»t a price!—a»price of, heart break and bankruptcy for the poor devils who pinned their faith to the soil.—Emporia Gazette. That is .the way we used to think about it. Whenever we read of high winds in Western Kansas, winds that dug the wheat out of the giound and swept the fields clean of all the loose so»l, down to the hard pan, we wciTied and ,wept for the "poor devils" the Gazette speaks about. We pictured the country as filled up with farmers, each family on its 160 acres, and all those families despairing and heart-broken n they saw the results of a year's labor swept away in an hom*. But one lovely May we dtove through that country, up and down and round and dbout. And what we saw was miles square of wheat without any houses at all. There were no little families on little farms, or so few as not to count. These miles square of wheat were owned by nien who lived in the towns or somewhere "back East," and for the most part were engaged in merchandizing or in professional life. They did not depend upon Jhe wheat crop for their living. That'was a side Issue. It was their way of gratifying their gambling instinct. 'When they sowed their wheat they knew perfec-' well they were taking at best a tiiree-two chance of getting anything back. Thirty years ago they figured that if they got two crops out of five they were doing well. With improved methods of plowing rind seeding, evolved through experience, they have come to know that three crops out of five may often be realized. But that Western Kansas country- is not filled up, as Eastern Kansas Is. v.'ith men who "pin their faith to the soli." It is not "filled up", with men of any sort. It is .sparsely settled by men who live in villages, who own and operate vast r.creages of wheat land, who kn'r' that every crop sown is a gamble v.'ith nature, and who govern themselves accordingly. When the gamble goes against them it. does not break thpir hearts or their bank accounts: When the wind comes up and the dust rises in such clouds tliat it is not safe to drivij automobiles on the highways they say: "Another wheat crop gonetell," and go about tlieir regular business. Gamblers, those guys in Western Kansas, and philosophers. Don't worry about them. Rather take heart of hope that Old Dame Nature has decided to take a hand In regiilatlng the wheat surplus, and Ijray that she will do a better job at it than Congress has been able to do. Certain Democrats r in Congress are urging that a law be passed authorizing and requiring the United States Ti-easury to piuchase silver bullion at the market price I which of course would rapidly apr predate I issuing therefor silver certificates. It was a slinilar measure which Grover Cleveland insisted was respoiisible for the hard times of 1894-5-6. and which he called pon- gress in special session to repeal.! It would be time well spent lor ti>te Congress to take an hour off aod have read from the clerk's desk In both houses the message of President Cleveland on that' subject. aims lie Stmtnf siiim /antiMr- 1^ The Confederate Congress. The provisional congress of the seceding Southern states met February 4, 1861, at Montgomery, Ala., where two sessions were held. It was" removed to Richmond, Va., May 24, 1861. The first congress of what was meant to be the permanent government of the Confederate States of America, met at Richmond, February 18, 1862, and held foiu- sessions. The second Confederate congress had two sessions between May 2, 1864. and March 18, 1865. Senator Oyler, of lola, has introduced a bill in the legislature providing that a resident of Kansas may obtain a hunting, fishing or trapping Uoense on, payment of 26 cents. The hunting license is good only for the county in which the licensee resides, but the fishing and trapping license is good all over the state. License to hunt in anywjunty in the state may be had by a resident for $1.00, but a non-resident must pay $7.00. License ito trap will not be issiied to any non-resident of the state at any price. From Other Papers He Stuck to His Rules. Pittsburg HeadUght: Bring! Mr. Holdeman of LaHarpe, Kas., to the front of the stage and pih a decoration on him. Let - the decoration mark its wearer as a man of quick, soimd thinking. Mr. Holdeman Is a banker. When there was a call at the door of his home at 1 o'clock Thursday morning, the banker responded. He heard the voice of the town's night "watchman, John Barnes. 'What was It that John wanted? "Come out and talk business." Well, a bahkier has hours of business an'4 1 o'clodk in the taomintr most certainly is not within 'bariik- ing hours. So he promptly declined the invitation to open the door and emerge. That he had made a proper decision, even at the risk of being discourteous to the town's iright guardian of the peace, was Impressed upon Mr. Holdeman later when he learned that the night watchman had some men with him who wanted in on the business talk. Perhaps It would be more accurate to state that the men had Mr. Barnes with them. He was spokesman for the' men with hhn. That is just what he was. He spoke as they told him to speak. Had Mr. Holdeman not stopped' to think and think clearly, he would have gone out and met six men armed with a machine gun, rifles, revolvers and shotguns. Tlie business they would have talked with him woiUd have concerned his opening the bank's vaUlt. As it ended, the six men took Mr. Barnes out into the country, threatened hie life and finally put him out. • <' •:• •:• • « <• « I mlSlJLLEITS i • —ITEMS— * • • •:• •> • • • -i- Mrs. Haisting and Mrs. Richardson are boath back to LaHarpe and we hope tliey will; enjoy Life—they are our friends. ; We see Wher Ohio is having a fine! winter and we all so sav^ wher a Man went to See a Friend of his and got a car to take him out—they had a lovely home—a mile from Town and the Driver went by the house, man; said Stop he said no, he is living down the line in the tenant hous, and the Man said the children wer off at School and my wife could not keep up the house and help was not satisfactory when the children-corn Hop they will go back.

Cummings, was saved Tuesday shortly before noon by the very small fraction of a second as he crossed the Missoilri Pacific tracks i)n Clay street, on his way from his home to his [office. •The east-bound flier moving at its usual considerable speed through town, hit the rear of Dr. Cummings's Ford coupe and demolished it. The train missed the right rear wheaS by maybe the hundredth part ai a Second, but caught the left rear wheel and turned the car around once and a half, witnesses say. Dr. Ciunmings was hurled out of the right door and alighted in a sitting posture. Rothwell Morris, City Clerk Edgar Wright, and Sam Min- Ich were eye witnesses of the accident and were first to reach the Injured man, fully expecting to find him dead. They found bis face cut deeply under the left eye.- Blood covered the eye', so that Unclfe Doc could not see at all, as he has had no use of his right eye for many years, and he beUeved his left eye had been torn out. The flier backed to the station, the conductor phOned f;o Fort Scott to have the ambulance ready at the depot and they took the injured man to Port Scott! abd to the hospital where it was found that his Injuries are not serious. Dr. Heard and John Grimes drove down following tha accident, and Mr. and Mrs. J. E.. Zimmerman took Mrs. Cummings down. "Huh," was the incurably Jovial doctor's coimment when the Bronson group came in to see him, "you came down here to ^e me die, and by George, I'm going to fool you." That same trait has cured—or been a great factor in curing -r -iUs of Bronson jieopte for over half a century. ' An X-ray at the hospital revealed that Dr. Cummings bad suffered a fractured right shoulder and several bn^en ribs on his right side.
