A comet has been discovered
with a tail three million miles
long. You can believe that tale if
you want to.
There is no man hater like a
woman who has put in several
years trying to capture one of the
brutes and failed.
If a man kan't laff there is sum
mistake made in putting him to-

A war order for granulated
sugar, valued at $3,000,000, to be
■lelivered in about two months, has
been received by the Fe eral Su-
gar Refining company. The su-
gar will be shipped to England.
It is reported that hail as large
a baseball fell in Moniteau
county, Mo., last week. The fel
low that sent that item to the
press for publication must have
been seeing double.
Some women are ,like some men
if they can't have their w«.y about
things they wen't play. A Prom
inent St. Louis clu* embracing in
its membership many of the lead-
ing society ladies of the city, is
all shot to pieces over the elect-
ions of officers.
It is said that grasshoppers are
.tgain threatening the Little. River
district in Pottawatomie county.
Farmers there say they are hatch-

have already been taken to kill
them, but the pests have a con-
T.le judge of the Logan county
court has passed an unusual sent-
-ice on an incorrigible negro boy
at Guthrie, Each day the boy
must be spanked, washed and
made to work in the garden. He
must not be permitted to go out-
side of his own yard and must be
in bed at 7 o'clock and get up
when his mother caUs him in the
morning. If necessary the boy's
mother may "stake him out" in
This nation as a whole, and al-
most every state in it—this cne
tot excepted—suffers from too much
law making. Senator Root told
the American Bar Association that
in five years from 1909 to 1913
inclusive, Congress and the State
Legislatures passed 62,014 laws.
No one knows how many thous-
ands of laws were in force before
1906, but the 62,014 new ones re-
pealed many of those previously in
force, and amended many more,
with no end of resulting confusion.
Relatively few of the laws are
vicious enough to work direct harm,
but hundreds of them are unnec-
essary and consistent.
An interested subscriber asks us
to state what the difference is be-
tween an old maid, a spinster and
a bachelor maid. The difference,
my dear child, is plain and pal-
atable." An old maid is a wo-
man who wants to get married
bjt who never had a chance- A
spinster is one who has had op-
portunities to marry but wouldn't.
A bachelor girl or maid is one
who can get married any time she
wants to, but who remains single
The battle line between the two
great warring forces of Europe is
said to be 1600 miles Ion? and
Germany shifts many of her sol-
diers from one of these fronts to
the other as there is apparent need.
To what she will resort when there
is a common attack from all sides
is not known.
The indications throughout the
wheat-producing sections of our
country are that we shall have one
of the greatest wheat crops in our
country's history. It may be
that Providence is co-operating
with the farmer in producing food
for the famishing nations of the
Confederate Pensions in October.
First quarterly payment of pen-
sions under the provisions of the
new confederate soldiers and
sailors' pension bill can not be
made until October 1, 1915, ac
cording to an opinion that has been
given by the attorney general's
office to W. D. Metthews, com
missioner of charities and cor-
rections, and ez-officio chairman of
