MUCH WORK ACCOMPLISHED.
The special session of the legisia-j
..... .v...v. .ts.tnrrtflv after

a very strenuous session lasting sev-
ral weeks vu in many respects a
inost extraordinary session. This is
particularly true with reference to the
amount of work done. It Is also true
that the work is of lasting benefit
and stands out to the credit of the
In point of wholesome legislation
legislation of Incalculable worth to the
f fate and to the people tne session
surpasses the first and second leg'sla-
There were a number o bilU passed
that possess unusual merit. Particular
reference is made to the fee and sal-
ary bill the revenue measures and the
changes in the election law.
In the salary bill alone there is an
apparent saving to the people of aaarly
fialf a million dollars annually It Is
estimated that in this county alone the
till will save the taxpayers in the
reiphborhood of ten thousand dollars
& year and will perceptibly reduce
tbe tax burden. Under the Anthony
revenue measure it Is possible that
the state levy will be entirely dis-!
Tensed with revenue for state pur-
poses being raised principally through
indirect taxation of the corporations.
Of course the session did not 3Ccom-
ji'ish all that was expected of it or
&!! that was mapped out for it to do;
tut in the main the people have cause
for congratulation in the work accom-
plished. Duncan Pinner.

TARIFF A CHIEF FACTOR.
?dr. Bjron W. Holt has an important
article in the New York Independent
entitled "Tariff and Cost of Living."
He assigns to the tariff the second
place as a factor in bringing about the
current high prices the other two fac-
tors being gold depreciation and rising
Ir.nd values. He admits however that
"it might be shown that the tariff
i3 responsible for some of the Increase
in land values."
He continues: "From somewhat
careful estimates made by myself in
lffOn the cost of living in this country
was then nearly 12 per cent higher
than it would have been had ther
teen no tariff. It was estimated that
the VifiWfiW families then consumed
foods worth fJ5.999.000.dOO or $941!
TXT family.- On this basis the tariff
tax was about $H1 per family or
S94.4S after deducting the $16.52 per
family wbic'i was the amount of tariff
taxes a-rually collected by the govern-
itf'Bt." 11 r. Holt does not think that
the amount of the tariff-trust tax per
tdtx'ly is less now than it was then.
Tfcen follows an interesting list of
tb amount of the tariff which the
average family had and still has to pay
ss calculated from ?h bst data avail-
able. It ought to interest the con-
faraer just now.

"O! I've never given tbe matter

prvati(n of a!l mcb trees.
A ca8e kown wllere a ianj m.
pany in puttin? a new tract upon the
market ran the sidewalk around a
large tree. Inasmuch as they were
ignorant of what a tree need m.st
(air) they had tbe cement walk pluced
close about the tree. In grading the
street they took off the lest one or two
feet of soil. Aa if hls was not suffi-
cient to destroy any tree they oiled
the street Any ordinarily Intelligent
Individual should have known that the
tree would die and no doubt the
agents suspected as much but they
were selling lots and as a rule rank
deception is part of the game. Of
course the tree died and in time some
one cut It down for fuel. Later some
boys set fire to the stump and a great
hole was burned in the earth. Comes
now an enterprising public Bptritea
citizen one of those good souls who
are. of the veritable "salt of the earth."
He caused a deep hole to be dug. the
full size of the opening through tbe
cement. Good soil was placed therein
and a young tree planted. Now for the
sequel. The young tree grew apace and
a few years after the lot in front of
which the tree grew was gold at sever-
al hundred dollars more than were ask-
ed for tbe adjoininglots. Do street trees
have a value? Another question arises
which is not difficult of solution: If
they have a value so high as demon-
strated by the above Instanced sale
why do we not pass a reasonable
street tree ordinance and provide a suf-
ficient city forestry department? If
a number of people demanded such
legislation It would be enacted.
TOWN'S NOVEL PLAN.
Denniton Tex. Will Have "Tree Day"
: to Make Village Beautiful.
A unique plan for the improving and
beautifying of the town was recently
devised by the park commission of
Dennison Tex. The commission has
announced plans for a "tree day" in
the near future. The children and
people of the city will be invited to
bring trees to beautify the park. It
at p esent possesses a fine growth of
nathe trees but the .majority are oak
and they do not furnish the proper
amount of shade aud In many cases
are not located to good advantage.
Tree day ia to be a day of celebration.
Holes for the trees to be given will be
dug In advance so that everything
will be in readiness. It is planned to
plant a double row entirely surround-
ing the park and to fill in Tacant spots.
Tl.e idea has met with instant favor
and it is expected that the school chil-
dren lodges societies and the citizens
in general win take n up. curing iue j
past year a number of concrete waits
have been built a fountain has been
installed tbe band stand has been re-
constructed a zoo ias been started
and many flower beds have been laid
out and maintained throughout the
summer. The citizens have been lib-
eral to the park and a caretaker has
been constantly on duty. Next year's j
tax levy includes a two cent park tax
which will create a considerable im- j
provement fund. When needed the;
services of the 1200 park boosters or j
(he members of (he Junior Park asso- j
elation to give them a more dignified j
name have been called in and It Is in- i
tended to use the boys In the future. I
Poetic Influence on School..
The Influences which have caused the
people of tbe western part of Kansas i
to beautify tbe landscape with trees j
came from the public schools. The
children in the sod sehoolhouses of the
plains twenty-five years aso were
taught to read and recite the poems
of Bryant Whlttier and others. Chil-
dren who had never seen a grove or
foiest of great trees were delighted
with the stories of Irving and of the
deep woods when Uip Yan Winkle
slept for twenty years. !
All they knew of the world was the
broad expanse of prairie land which '
they lived in. In hundreds of these j
ee.rly schools rsryaot's classic. "The 1
Groves Were God's First Temples' j
was recited on each Friday afternoon. !
State Superintendent Faircbild and j
other educators cf Kansas declare j
that it is owing to this class of litera-
ture In the schools of western Kansas j
more than any other cause that the I
children of twenty-five years ago now j
grown to manhood are turning to tbe !
practical work of transforming a prai i
rie country into a iand of groves and j
Self Confidence Lacking.
The storekeeper that ' aya "Cue
that trade conditions are ugalnst this
particular locality" ia looking at con
ditions from the wrong end of the spy- i (
against tbe trading center the whole
fault lies with bis method of trying to
set trade that is going to his compet-
itor. All that he needn Is a little in-
fusion of s-!f confidence mixed with
self help which means thist lie be
lieves In his ability to "set there" and
in determined to help himself to arrive
by applying .usincus method to bul-Ufoe.
