A Kansas legislator has intro-
duced a bill that will permit
everybody who wants to, and is
willing to put up one halfOof
one per cent of the yearly salary
office pays to defray expenses,
to have his name printed on the
primary ballot. The bill cuts
out petitions and also provides
that the names of all candidates
be put on one ballot and abol-
ishes party lines in the primary.
The above is a "peoplesrule"
measure and should be popular
in a state where the motto "Let
the People Rule" is worked to
Paying a contractor $14,000
extra to guarantee to put down
good paving, when that is what
they are supposed to do anyway
would be like paying a carpen-
ter *1,000 extra to guarantee to
put a building together so that
it would not fall down inside
of five years, or to guarantee
the nails not to fall out of the
boards. The building will not
fall down if built right, nor will
the nails fall out if they are put
in right; neither will the paving
need repairing if put down right
and if the right kind of stuff is
put in it. Then why should the
city pay out *14.000 extra for
Kidder—Why do you refer to Mls
Antique's marriage as a bafgain sale?

age down nearly one-half.
Abandon Plans to Move Convicts
Guthrie, Okla.—At a meeting of the
state board of prison control here, at
which Superintendent Dick, of the
state penitentiary was present, it was
decided that for the present the idea
of placing the prisoners in Oklahoma
county jails would be abandoned, and
that the matter of caring for them at
McAlester would be left for the time
to Mr. Dick.
-English bootmakers are ob-
jecting to the movement in the
Lnited States to remove the
tariff on leather. English leath-
er is said to be the best in the
world and if the tariff here is
taken off it, the English will
materially lose because America
already handles all England
can export and the tariff enables
them to make exhorbant price
on it where without the tariff
there would be too much of a
difference between it and ordin-
ary leather to permit them to
Swallows Hat Pin

old daughter of J. P. Henry of Pryor
Creek, died on the operating table at
the Muskogee city hospital. The child j

Just a Suggestion.
A reader of the New York Tribuna
writes from London: "It is evident
that some people in your country be-
lieve that military organizations in
which a member must be of a certain
religion are all right, your editorial
opinion to the contrary notwithstand-
ing. The Chronicle of this city telta
us that at Milwaukee a Jewish mili-
tary company has been formed and
named 'The Rothschild Guards,' and
suggests 'this opens up some new pos-
sibilities in nomenclature,' and then
gives the names qf prominent Jewa
which might figure as prefixes to or-
ganizations in various branches of th«
service. In your city you might hav«
the Dinkelspiel Sharpshooters,' the
'Sullivan Cavalry Cadets,' or the 'Min-
zesheimer Muskeeters.' This and more'
will follow the emulation of the Mil-
I.ifrhtnlnK ftonstfil Duck.
An extraordinary effect of lightning
Is reported from Lake Grandiieu, in
the Nantes region. A violent tempest
burst over the lake, with vivid light-
ning and thunder. A number of boats
were on the lake, and while they were
hurrying to bank there was a tremen-
dous peal of thunder. Almost imme-
diately there foil among the boats the
dead bodies of a large flock of wild
ducks, some of them roasted to a nice-
ty, and some charred to a cinder.
Roast Anck cooked by lightning reads
like a novelty, even in the freaks of
meteorology. If it could only be adapt-
ed to the "quick lunch" system!

Didn't Want tlie Family.
He had at last summoned up suffi-
cient courage to "ask papa," when,
to his astonishment, the blustering
parent demanded, "Are you capable of
supporting a family, sir?"
"No, sir," he replied with great firm-
ness. "My father tackled that Job and
has had his wife's family on his hands
ever since. I only want your daughter,
sir, not the family."

The Tibetans are not beautiful. Hovt
Could they be when, by tK#lr own con-
fession, the national ancestry runs
back to the king of the monkeys and
a hobgoblin? Bonvalot says of them,
j "The very bears are better looking."
The type is midway between the Es-
I kimo and the Chinese. Broad, flat
noses, without visible bridge; no eye-
I brows, wide mouths, full lips, oily
skins, hair as coarse and straight as
| horsehair, and short, square, ungainly
| figures—these are the elements of the
' unpleasing picture.
