Prices for cattle on the market yesterday were
to ten cents higher.
One of the compensations of living in a small town is
freedom from t tie end seat hog.
When Cleveland volunteered to speak a work for Parker
it acted like a drop shot and a knock-out.
A week from Thursday the democratic convention
the Indian Territory will meet at Durant.
That bottled Russian fleet should be allowed to escape.
it would make the capitulation of Port Arthur sooner
and more certain.
The damage done to roads bridges and farms by last
week's rains in this section is enormous but it is
much worse south of us.
Ten large photographs depicting the several residences
of Jefferson Davis and the seats of the Confederate Gov
ernment are exhibited in the Mississippi building at the
World's fair which is itself a reproduction of Beauvoir
the last home of the ex President of the Confederacy.
Ten thousand square feet of space in the Palace of
Agriculture at the World's fair is devoted to the special
exhibit of pure food goods. Here all of the foreign sub-
stances used to adulterate foods are shown in a separate
receptacle alongside the original package.
New Jersey has an exhibit of good roads on the model
street at the World's fair. Demonstrations of the man-
ner in which the New Jersey highways are built are
b'iven from time to time by R. A. Meeker state superin-
tendent of roads who is in charge of the exhibit.
The desire of Agent Shoenfelt to have an assistant ap-
pointed to have charge of the business of removal of re-
strictions is a very natural one; but the chances are that
the Indians would prefer to deal directly with Shoenfelt
as t hey have the utmost confidence in him and he under-
stands the conditions perfectly.
The Dawes commission has received special instruc-
tions as to the disposition of surplus lands held by the
registered Delaware. According to a provision in the
Indian appropriation bill passed and approved April 21
the Delawares were allowed to sell their surplus holdings
The case of the intermarried white citizens in the
Cherokee nation is in hands of a competent attorney W.
T. Hutchings and there should be no talk of a com-
promise. The case has been practically settled by former
decisions of the L'nited States court of claims. The case
will bear the fullest investigation and there need be no
uneasiness on the part of this class of citizens they w ill
eventually be enrolled and share in the equal division of
land and money.
pay. Next there are those who do the right thing when
necessity kicks them from behind and these get indiffer-
ence instead of honors and always a pittance for pay.
This kind spends most of its time polishing a bench with
a hard luck story. Lower down In the scale we get the
fellow who will not do the right thing even when some-
one goes along to show him how and stays to see that
he does it: he is always out of a job. and receives the
contempt he deserves unless he has a rich pa in which
case destiny patiently awaits 'round the corner with a
stuffed club. The Philistine.
Yesterday Today and Forever.
Before Niagra's eternal tide
I stood and heard the solemn thund'rous roar
I watched the awful flood unceasing roar.
The mystic rainbow spanning high and wide
In whose bright arch each starry drop descried
One instant flashed then broke its radiance o'er
To mortal vision lost forevermore.
Epitome of human life and pride !
A bubble bursts: gone pageant pomp and palm !
So man the unit Hashes disappears;
But choired by cosmic chant and prophet-psalm
Mankind with all Us doubts and hopes and fears
In immortality's majestic calm
Rolls grandly down the everlasting years.
Anna II. Frost.
After a Vindication.
"As J. Ralph Burton senior United States senator from
Kansas sat in the hotel lobby in this city Friday waiting
for a train" says the Coffey ville(Kas. JDaily Record "he
looked the last part of a misspent life. No bands met
him at the station no national colors were hung in honor
of the silver-tongued orator of Kansas. He came as an
ordinary traveling man and took his chances with the
rest in getting a room at the hotel.
"A few years ago if this same Burton had came to
Cotleyville men would have gathered around him as thick
as flies around a Walnut street joint. But the time is
past. Burton is an 'also ran.' He says he will be vindi-
cated will again forge his way to the respect of the
people. But will he V It is a fact that he worked his
way from the lowest round. By merit and industry he
reached the pinnacle; yet few men have ever been able
to regain lost ground and retrt.ce their steps Where
confidence is lost it is an I'phii) proposition to regain re-
spect. His visit in Southern Kansas is said to be con-
nected with oil interests. The Cherryvale News says:
" 'Senator Burton is looking over this section but not
for oil. He is after securing the nomination of senators
and representatives whom he can control. What he is
after is a vindication and as there is no interest in poli-
tics he may succeed as powerful monied interests are
back of him as well as strong political influences.

The world bestows its big prizes both in money and

is Initiative? I'll tell you. It is doing the thing with-
