No town will become a business
center so long ns Us business men
rely on a few merchants to make
efforts to bring trade to town, al
though It may have an active board
of trade. Too often the men In n
few lines of trade are about the only
ones that reach out after custom.
Other merchants wait until these
men induce the people to come to
town and content themselves with
the trade that naturally drifts to
their places. A public spirited man
should ask himself if he is doing his
part to attract people to come to
town to trade, in helping the busi
ness community, and no town is a
success unless all lines are working
to extend the trade as far as possi
ble, and trying to bring a larger ter
ritory In the circles In which the
town is the business center.
Roosevelt has proved himself to
be a "bully" politician, some people
say it the other way, that he is a
"political bully," the word bully be
ing one of his pet words'.' Anyway
you use It will not displease him as
ho is dee-lighted with any expression
that emphasize his personality. He
deserves great credit for his victory
at Saratoga from the very fact that
ho won regardless of the fruits which
will no doubt blossom and mature
at the coming election. He smash
ed the Old Guard and is now the
New Guardian of the Republican
party of New York state. With
Woodruff, Sherman, Barnes and oth
ers as trophies of his Saratoga hunt
shackled to the rear end of his au
tomobile, he can now make his tri
umphal return to Oyster Bay. Nero
fiddled while Rome burned. Theo
dore Roosevelt may have a chance
to whistle while the Republican par
ty In the Empire state Is smashed to
OUR SPECIAL FItOM SARATOGA.
Just as I promised you I am giv
ing you my impressions of our con
vention. 1 was a sub, and it was a
hummer. The hnll was packed.
The crowd was pretty well divided
in yelling. Roosevelt Is a corker. He
Just rode rough shod over the old
gang and booted them out of control.
He is the Boss and don't you forget
It, and lie will name his man for
governor and his name, I am told,1
is STI.MSON. He Is a kid glove sport,
so they tell me. When Teddy stood
on the platform and opened his
mouth to show his teeth, his face
looked like that big bear trap that
used to be on exhibition in the win
dow of the Simpson pawn shop.
There wero 17 delegates In my row
and every blessed one of us is hold
ing down a good government job,
and you can bet wo made some
noise. Big mouth Leary sat on ono
side of me, and every time he roared
I had to duck or have my ear drum
cracked. On the other 6ido was an
old gent with whiskers. He looked
like a broken down sport but he
had his little part to say, all written
out by some typewriter. This old
guy lost his goggles and I had to
read his program to him and toll
him when to get up and nominate
some fellow on some committee. He
had a cracked voice and you couldn't
hear what ho said If you laid In bed
with him; but Teddy had It all down
alrlght'and didn't have to hear. You
can talk about tlio machino being
well greased. Say, that was the slick
est and best running artlclo that
over camo down the pike. Every
mothpr son of them had his little
part all typewritten and our buuch
of 17 had a big yap from up the stato
who would tell us when to yell and
you can bet wo shouted. You could
hear us way out on the race tracks.
Somebody waB very generous with
tho dough. All railroad, hotel and
car expenses wero paid and every
man had a Tener or a sawbuck with
orders to push it over tho bar. The
rnco track gang were very happy.
They claimed that Teddy promises
give tho live sports a show but Is
going to jump on those pious sports
down In Wall street who gamble all
the week and go to church on Sun
days. I saved my tenor and lot tho
other fellows do the bar act. I nm
going to use my money for gasollno.
I have tho uso of n nice llttlo .gov
ernment car on Sindays'but, tlioold
gang got so moan as to drain (ill the
gasollno out of tho tanks so tho boys
couldn't uso them on Sundays, but
Parsons will fix that up now, as ho
will want overy man to bo out nights
and Sundays whooping It up for
Roosevelt's man. Our hend man tells
us that Roosey Is going to have fatty
Taft put all of us fellows on tho
civil service list so wo enn't be re
moved In case the Demy's get back
on tho throne. Say that fellow In
Pennsylvania you hnvo rnnning for
Governor is a dandy big follow. If
he only had the nervo Teddy has ho
would own tho whole stntc. He's
got a bully name too, Tener. Is ho
giving many ten spots away. Tele

KOOSHVHIrS OPINION OF SMALL
From a paper by Theodore Roose
velt in The Century Magazine for
"Hut everywhere among theso
plnlnsmen and mountnln-men, nnd
moro Important than any, are the
cowboys, the men who follow the
calling tliat has brought such towns
into being. Singly, or in twos or
threes, they galop their wiry little
horses down tho street, their lithe,
supple figures erect or swaying slight
ly as they sit loosely in tho saddle:
while their stirrups are so long thnt
their knees are hardly bent, tho
bridles not taut enough to keep the
chains from clanking. They nro
smaller and less muscular than the
wielders of axe and plok; but they
are as hardy and self-reliant as any
men who ever breathed with bronz
ed, set faces, nnd keen eyes that look
all the world straight in the face
without flinching as they flash out
from under the broad rimmed hats.
Peril and hardship, and years of long
toil broken by weeks of brutal ais-
slpatlon, draw haggard lines across
their eager laces, but never dim
their reckless eyes nor break their
bearing of defiant self-conlldence.
They do not walk well, partly be
cause they so rarely do any work
out of the saddle, partly because
their chaperajos or leather overalls
hamper them when on the ground;
but their appearance is striking for
all that and picturesque, too, with
their jingling spurs, the big revolvers
stuck in their belts, and bright silk
handkerchiefs knotted loosely round
their necks over the open collars of
the flannel shirts. When drunk on
the villainous whisky of the frontier
towns they cut mad antics, riding
their horses into the saloons, firing
their pistols right and left, from
boisterous lightheadedness rather
than from any viclousness, and in
dulging too often in deadly shooting
nffrays, brought on either by the
accidental contact of the moment or
on account of some long-standing
grudge, or perhaps because of bad
blood between two ranches or locali
ties; but except while on such sprees
they are quiet, rather self-contained
men, perfectly frank and simple, and
on their own ground treat a stran
ger with the most whole-souled hos
pitality, doing all In their power for
him and scorning to take any re
ward in return. Although prompt
to resent an Injury, they are notjit
all apt to bo rude to outsiders,
treating them with what can almost
be called a grave courtesy. They
arc much belter fellows nnd pleasnn
Icr companions than small fanners
or agricultural laborers; nor are the
mechanics and workmen of a grout
city to be mentioned in the same

GRAY LINE GROWS THINE
How time is passing and the old
order of things is changing is sug
gested anew by tho very recent death
of two United States senators, Mc
Enery of Louisiana and Daniel of
Virginia, both of whom wero in the
Confederate army. For many years
tho greater part of the representa
tion from the south in both houses
of Congress was made up of men
who hnd been in tho military service
on that side during tho Civil war
tho Confederate brigadiers as they
came to be called. With the pass
ing away of Senators McEnery and
Daniel there remain in that branch
of Congress but six men who fought
for the Confederacy Senators Bank
head and Johnston of Alabama, Tal
iaferro of Florida, Bacon of Geor
gia, Money of Mississippi and Mar
tin of Virginia. And by an odd co
incidence there aro tho same num
ber of ex-Confederates In the house
Messrs. Taylor and Richardson of
Alabama, Rucker of Colorado, Liv
ingston of Georgia, -Talbott of Mary
land, and Gordon of Tennessee. Tho
day is at hand when veterans who
wore either the blue or tho gray In

Figures of tlio Milk Situation.
In June a daily averago of 47,293
cans of milk and 3,512 cans of cream

the Milk Reporter. This Is equal to
64,856 cans of plain milk, an lucreaso
of 1,746 cans as compared with re
ceipts for the corresponding month
of 1909. Tho Increase Is represent

of cream and unsweetened condens

A Self-Confessed Malefactor of Great
Tlio only malefactor of great
wealth who frankly acknowledges
the corn and confesses that he lias
malcfacted is the subject of nn out-of-the-ordinary
story by Bruce Bar
ton In Human Life for October.
Tills confession wasn't made on
the mourner's bench, by the way, or
after the doctor had told the man of
millions that he had but a few hours
more to live. The timo and place
wero even more unusual.
Here Is a part of his confession
nnd his arraignment of other gilded
malefactors: "You are robbers, too.
The only difference between us is
that I know 1 steal and you don't.
I am going to lend a better life and
you are not. I don't mean that 1
am going to quit stealing. I'm only
half honest yet but I'm going to use
my swag I might as well bo plain
about it, and 'swag' is what it is
I'm going to use it to break up the
system which has made It possible
for mo to get it. John D. Rocke
feller Is a member of my gang, a
good, quiet little member, who
doesn't have any idea how big a
ribber he is. Pierpont Morgan is
another. The only trouble with them
Is that their consciences need sand
papering, or they need a few more
jolts In the stock market, or some
thing of that kind to bring them to
a sense of their iniquity.
This is no fairy tale, but a per
fectly true happening, and the life
story of how this man made his mil
lions, what has pricked, his con
science, and his plan for destroying
the system that makes such robbery
of the public possible is ono of the
most unique features of this issue.
DISPUTING SCIENCE. ,
Those practical persons who have
rushed Into tho lists with Secretary
of Agriculture, James Wilson, and
have declared that the gentleman
from Tama, la., did not know what
he was talking about when he said
In a recent report that chickens
ought to bo kept without food for
twenty-four .hours before they were
killed, should pause before obtrud
ing their opinions upon the public.
Secretary Wilson had as a basis of
his declaration, the report of a very
clever young lady who is known in
the department as Dr. Pennington.
Dr. Pennington is an expert and a
scientist, and in the words of the
Secretary himself, "is a mighty nice
girl." She has been Investigating
this chicken question for a year or
two, and last spring she went before
tho cold storage warehousemen and
told them a lot they never knew be
fore about their own business. They
took it nobly, too, and voted their
thanks to boot. What Dr. Penning
ton knows about preparing poultry
for market and the effects of cold
storage on it, tho relatives merits of
dry picked poultry and poultry
which has been scalded and other
things pertaining to the subject,
would fill a book. Accordingly, it
is recommended again, thnt non
professional persons should go slow
in contradicting the deductions and
findings of Dr. Pennington, who

tor says, to back up all that sho

Uncle Sam, as a land auctioneer,
is attracting considerable attention
in Oklahoma by an unique method
of selling the red man's heritage,
In tho form of good tillable land.
Thnt tho farmer and investor appre
ciate the plan and have confidence 1..
it is demonstrated by tho fact that
within the past twelvo months ap
proximately one million dollars have
been paid for Indian land to the
United States government through
tho United States Indian Superin
tendent at Muskogee, Oklahoma.
For several years tho question of
land titles in that part of Oklahoma,
formerly Indian Territory, has not
been looked upon favorably by those
desiring Investments. Land that
will raise ono bale of cotton to the
acre, sixty bushels of corn season
after season, better than ono hun
dred bushels of oats, two crops of
potatoes in ono season, averaging
one- hundred bushels to tho acre,
and adaptable to raising a corres
ponding crop of any of tho staples,
has gone begging and remained Idle
on account of tlio title bugaboo.
The same grade of land In Missouri,
Illinois, Iowa, Kansas and tho other
agricultural states, was bringing
from ?C5.00 to 1150.00 per aero,

Within the past year, things hnvo
greatly changed. The Government
decided to soli tlio restricted lands
for tho Indian and supervlso the
proceeds from tho snlo of such
lands. Tho Indian Is, ns a rule, In

clouds, appraise tho land and im
provements, and offer tho same to
tlio highest bidder, thereby Insur
ing porfect title, tho deed being pre
pared In tho ofilco of the United
States Indian Superintendent.
From the beginning tho plan
proved nn excellent ono and before
the third monthly salo tho lists bt

There Is no doubt as to a plear

Indian Superintendent and if no
clouds nffecting title are found, the
land Is ndvertlsed. When nn Indian
makes application for the removal
of restrictions upon tho sale of his
land the same Is submitted to nn
nppraiser for an investigation as to
its quality, improvements nnd value
consideration being taken as to
the distance from market, kind of
market and the roads. At the same
time the" District Agent is given a
description of the lnnd and he checks
the county records wherein the
land is located to ascertain whether
there are any Illegal Instruments of
records. If such instruments nppear
of record the superintendent will
riot advertise the land until tho title
can be cleared.
The land advertised through the
office of the United States Indian
Superintendent Is of every qunlity,
