A great many Kansans want to

For the benefit of the boys who stay
at home we will describe the experi-
ence of the Lucky Fellow who takes
in the convention:
The Fellow will stand around the
lobbies of Chicago hotels amid a per-
spiring and heer-smelllng crowd of
centlemen vociferously declaring
that the country Is ruined unless
their candidate is nominated.
Every sleeping room will be crowd-
ed. prices will be raised, and the
visitor will be stuck every time there
Is an opening. He will put In a tire-
some day trying to get a ticket Into
the Coliseum and may succeed. If
he does he will sit for hours In a
dense and uncomfortable atmos-
phere. He will see the chairman rap
for order A man will take the plat-
form and will go through the mo-
to sleep, get all the news as fast as
It happens and be able to argue as'

I believe in any system the people
have tried fa long time, and found
most expedient. Therefore I believe
in laws They are all Imperfect, but
they are the best we can do. after
trying many centuries I believe In
marrlaee; It has its defects, as any
fool may say. but not so many as free
love. I believe In the best workmen
being mado foremen, and umpires
and general managers. In every
place where men toll, there are Inex-
perienced workmen who need direc-
tion In order that they may better
learn their trade, and themselves be-
come foremen and superintendents.
There Is the sane reason for fore-
men. superintendents, and rules and
laws that there is for giving a father
authority to direct his children.
Workmen are constantly becoming
foremen and IttPeriBtMdMtS; chil-
dren are constantly becoming rich
men. I believe In every good thing.

wherever found; I believe In every
rule and law that the people genrally
accept, since we have no other guid-
ance. Occasionally you find a worthy
Insurgent In advance of the people
and teaching good doctrine, but a
few of these have resulted In a flood
of cheap, tiresome, selfish Imitators.
I believe in every man making con-
stant efforts to Improve himself, but
I fear that much of the public clamor
that goes on Is unfair, unreasonable,
Impudent, and a waste of time. I
believe a man should reform himself,
and not the world, since a man can
usually get results if he goes at his
own case honesily and conscientious-
ly: whereas, since time began, the
names of all the men who have really
influenced the world could be printed
on this page.—Ed Howe.
