The Only Newspaper In Khim Pus-Ilshed Every Day la the Year The Only Morning Paper and Only Sunday Paper In Topeka. Entered July 1, 187b, as Second Class matter at the postofflce at Topeka. Kan., according to the Act ot Congress. portions of Iowa and Illinois. "Kansas and ' vicinity" being:, as can readily be seen on the map, quite a comprehensive region. "There has also been a vast accumulation of wealth in . the past decade," the Republican goes on to say, "arM the average Kansas farmer has more fat to live on in the lean years". Summing it all up, as to the purchasing- power and therefore business to be done in this section: "The answer is that their purchasing power should be less affected than ever before in the history of the Southwest." That fairly describes the situation in this section. Home of The Topeka Capital-Built, Owned and Occupied Exclusively by -The capital and Associated Capper Publications.

In connection with the proposed Sur vey of Topeka it has been mentioned that the cities of Europe, small as well as great, have made and acted upon the results of such municipal surveys, because not having, as the American saying is, "money to burn", they cannot afford not to make them. This is borne out by interviews printed in Germany in the Westliche Post of St. Louis and kindly translated and sent us by a Kansas German- American, Mr. M. Grosskopf f. The in terviews appear in a letter from Ber lin of August 12 of the investigations by aeommission appointed by the American Civic Association. The com mission has visited Hamburg-, Nurem burg, Dresden, Berlin, Rothenburg, Munich, Frankfurt and Cologne. Its recommendations will be placed before the Bureau of the Civic Association at Washington for a final disposal and recommendation to cities in this country. "The laws," one of the Com missioners is quoted as saying-, "are firmly administered without seeming to be burdensome to the public. Busi ness permeates the atmosphere of city administration. The most evident feature of these administrations is cleanliness, and with a general love for flower culture. This is characteris tic, being fostered by all from child hood." ' Certainly an attractive munic ipal trait. The secretary of the commission refers particularly to the "great attention given to sanitation and happiness of the people, a wonderful combination of beauty and utility" marking city management. Another member of the commission, the Mayor of Chattanooga, F. C. Thompson, is struck by the "unity of thought and feeling" for the city and the nation. "The very fact that the government is constantly striving to make the condi tion of Its people more agreeable shows that human life in Germany is of some value, and therefore imparts a general feeling of good fellowship and common interest." The members of this commission be that their study of German 33.325 Heve 33',913 municipalities is "of Incalculable value' 33,448 in the suggestions that will be made "t 264 in theIr reDOrt to the Civi5 Associa 33.264 tion.

HOUSE. Women cried when Diggs was con victed, thus bearing out our own theory that the way to win the women is to be not quite respectable. No, we never trifled with the ex periment. During the days of our bachelorhood we tried so hard to be respectable, and was so generally es teemed harmless, that the women laughed at us. Thaw was evasive when asked whether a reconciliation between Eve lyn and he were possible. Inasmuch as all Evelyn did was save him from, the electric chair we don't see how Harry could for a moment entertain the idea of reconciliation. It would be too much to ask a clean, upright young fellow like Harry to take back a woman who had openly admitted her shame. We don't believe the Thaws would countenance such a thing. It can at least be said for Sulzer that he was smart enough to know the kind of predigested "bunk" the people most eagerly swallow. Whether a pub lie character is justified in thus emas culating himself is another and larger question. Opportunity to sign a petition for the removal of billboards has recently been vouchsafed this colm. We de cllned, falling back -upon our theory that billboards usually are much less objectionable to the eye than that which they conceal. The telegraph indicates that a case is being made against the Moun Days, Which is important only to the Moun Days. The fool investor always "is able to find a fire In which to burn his money. Suggestion to sporting editors: Why not print something about Christy Mathewson? ' , Whether you're a hitter or not depends a great deal on the league in which you make them. The Missus read the screed and then suggested that we probably were not so much in danger of going insane as we were of becoming opinionated and bigoted. "Everybody can't see it your way," she said. We do not object to the fact that they can not see it our way. The thing we object to is that they do not see it at all. The second number of Harper's Weekly, as edited by Norman Hapgood is at hand, but things seem to be run ning along about as they were before We had no idea it would take Norm more than a week.

One society reporter credits Bob Smith in Minneapolis, Kan. We told Bob, when he blew In wearing a $60 suit of clothes and carrying a cane, that something unpleasant was going to happen to him. We should attach more importance to the great demand for Mrs. 'Gene Strat- ton-Porter's new book if we could forget that millions of copies of Harold Bell Wright's have been sold. The Ringllngs having failed to bring rain, it seems to be up to Gentry's dog and pony show, that being the acid test. Another thing we learn with deep re-ret and indignation is that Ambassa dor Page has offended the Duchess of Marlborough. But we shall do nothing about it, we shall do nothing about it. A Chicago burlesque theater, adver tises, "snioklng permitted." So far as we are personally concerned, the in ducement is inadequate.

Eph says there are not that many fish in the world. "The perfessor has been misquoted," said Mr. Wiley yesterday "What he intended to tell the newspa pers was that he has nine POUNDS of fish." Mrs. Anderson, says the evening luminary, "lives in Topeka, and her little daughter, Arra Anette, lives with her." When it comes to the mat ter of chronicling the unique and the unusual the evening luminary has no competition in its class. This colm does not conserve its en comiums. It unhesitatingly declares But the worst blow Bob will sustain still is to fall. It will descend upon him some day when he meets an old friend and the old friend asks him if he has been out of town.

In 183S. the Invention ot J. B. Kiel son the Introduction of a heated blast caused a tremendous Increase In output. This Improvement was accompanied by Kasmyth's steam ham mer, and In 1856 Bessemer gave to the world a process that was astonishing and remarkable. The discovery of i the Bessemer process made It possible to produce steel at such low cost as to extend Its use widely, and did much to supercede wrought iron la structuaral work. Bessemer steel Is now almost uni versally used for steel rails. The open-hearth system of Martin and Thomas, with the regenerative gas furnace of Siemens, supplies steel thst lis used In enormous quantities for all purposes. Lately science has again prevailed. and in the products of White and Taylor and Robert Hadfleld we have steel that combines great malleable-ness with great hardness a hardness that retains Its cutting power even when at red heat. And so we go marching on. From the savage who In wonder raked from the ashes of his fire a crude ball of molten material and slag, and with which he formed a weapon of defense, to the safety razor and the automo bile of the twentieth century citizen, metal is supreme. CARBON AND IRON. Steel Is made by combining a cer- tain proportion of carbon with Iron. The process determines Its value and variety. The roost important of these pro cesses are cementation.

A man whom everybody in Cleveland knows and whom almost everybody in Cleveland likes wandered into our of fice the other day and greeted us sadly. "Cheer up," we said in surprise, for he is usually merry. "What seems to be the matter this morning?" "Today is my sixtieth birthday," he responded, gravely. . - - "Congratulations. You don't look it and you don't feel it, and I don't see anything to be sorrowful about." "It isn't that. But, see here. I'm pretty well known in this town, ain't I? Lived here all my life and am fairly successful in my profession. And I'm the only man in town, I believe, who has arrived at my age without ever having been called the 'dean' of anything by the papers. What's the matter with you fellows, anyhow?" Cleveland Plain Dealer. Queen Elizabeth reigned in England in the sixteenth century and put that i country so thoroughly on the map that j It has since then run all over it like the color of a fast black stocking. Elizabeth, according to her friends, was a beautiful queen, but many of her critics, who lost their heads during her reign, left private advices to the effect that she had red hair and a mole and was not as graceful as a hatrack. - She was the daughter of Henry VIII by wife No. 1, Series B., but this did not provide her with much of a pull after her father's death. For some time her half-sister Mary, who was very fatal to her relatives, intended beheading her, but she put the job off too long and when Mary died Elizabeth became queen. Being queen of England at that time was no sinecure, for England was a small country and its powerful rivals, such as Holland, France and Spain, took great pleasure in booting it around. However, Elizabeth paid strict attention to the army and navy and did not load it down with personal friends of congressmen. As a result England whipped everything vithin reach and chased Spain's fleet into hitherto unexplored oceans. Elizabeth naturally became very popular and received many offers of marriage. But she was fickle and hard to - suit. The best she could do was to become a sister to a large as most of whom died by request when sister got peeved.

But wideawake, alert, up to date men and women, experts in the schools and the professions, are profoundly interested in the subject of school hygiene, believing that this has much to do and will continually have more to do with the Improvement of the human race, the development of the nation and the prosperity.

We are living in a rapid time, of which nothing is more typifying in the excitement they contribute than the motor car and motorcycle. Gov. Hodges is thinking of appoint ing a pond day or week this fall, to induce every farmer to construct a pond to conserve the water that goes to waste In the spring, for service in dry weather. A good idea. This was one of the hobbles of Gov. Stubbs and Game and Fish Commissioner Dyche. The drouth this summer has demon strated the value of the pond Idea.

Japanese Servants On Woman Suffrage Count Okuma outlines the growth of female education in Japan. With the extension of the educational facilities of women in Japan, their choice of occupation has certainly widened. This economic independence of the women has compelled men to "show greater respect to their wives and to exercise restraint on their lordly attitude. But here arise the important question whether women should receive the same education as men? No, in the count's opinion, the two sexes should prepare for the division of labor In their lives. The old nursery story of Momotaro puts this in a formula "The old man went to the woods to gather fagots, and the old woman went down to the river to wash clothes." The very start and basis of human morality is to be found in marriage; single life i3 a misfortune and a tragedy. The English suffragettes are so drastic In their conduct because, with the large exodus of men to other countries, English society has grown Into an unnatural state where a large number of women are unmarried; while the movement Is carried on In a milder form in America, because there the supply of the male population goes on steadily. - Ex-Ambassador Viscount Uchida says he feels it quite justifiable in Japnese women with new education to come to follow the examples of their western sisters in claiming political rights. But he points out that the long-established and strong influence of the family system of Japan will be effectual In checking the general spread of this movement for some time to come. Professor Abe, of Waseda, goes into a lengthy review of the experience of the countries and part of America which have given the vote to women. On the whole, these results have been beneficial. Instead of using the privilege for the assertion of their personal rights, the women have utilized it for the cause of prohibition and . for the improvement ot the conditions of child life. Japanese politicians are inconsistent in that they hesitate to extend to women, and laborers the political rights which they strive to wrench from the "bureaucratic clan." Professor Kuwaki says the chief faults found with the new women is that new ideas and new occupations make them lose their feminine qualities and become masculine. The Justice of such criticism is not always free from doubt. Dr. Egi holds the present social conditions of Japan responsible for the appearance of the new woman, for they must, in existing circumstances, seek independence and search for a means of living.
