Young Men's Chief Fault,
i The fault with most young men is
that they are indolent and inclined to
shirk their duty. The man who always
tries to get ofiE as easy as possible, and
when working for others does as little
as possible for the wagss tiat% he re-
cieives, will never advance, and never
amount to anything in life. Every
young man should through all his busi-
ness career constantly keep in mind
the parable of the faithful servant and
the reward given to him: "Because
thou hast been faithful in a very little,
have thou authority over ten cities."
How many young men nowadays pay
any heed to this? asks the New York
Weekly. They all want to be great, to
be successful, but they will not take
pains with little things and work their
way gradually to the top. They want
to jump to the top rung of the ladder
right away. They all desire to be-
come Vanderbilts or Rockefellers or
Morgans, but they throw away fool-
ishly whatever money they earn be-
cause they hope some day to make it
in great quantities. A young man am-
bitious to succeed in life should from
the very start make it clear for him-
self that he must work hard and plod
along, every day accomplishing the
duties belonging to that day, and if he
does this and leaves no duty undone,
he will be sure to find his reward,
first in a clear conscience, and ulti-
mately in success, but he must not ex-
pect success or wealth to drop down
into his lap without any effort on his
A Fair "Force."
What will the patient, suffering hus-
bands and fathers say to the pending
scheme to make women actual police-
men? The New York club which has
the matter in hand is convinced that
the city of the future must have wom-
an's heltolft "lead its future citizen
away fwSBplbe door of the saloon and
induce him to fling away his half-
smoked cigarette." The feminine po-
licemen are to "exercise a general su-
M||--Periston over children In the streets
and to mingle with their games." It
remains to be seen, says Youth's
Companion, what will be the effect on
Miss Constable of "mingling" with a
vigorous game of football in a vacant
lot. The gentle art of handball might
be acquired by candidates for appoint-
zneJt to the "force;" but what about
baseball? Could a policewoman hope
to "mingle" successfully unless she
could manage a three-base hit and a
home rua? It is no wonder that the
discussion of these perplexing ques-
tions was postponed by the club to a
then the meeting re-
itself into a committee of the
whole to discuss the dress suitable for
the new officials. When the hour for
adjournment came several vital mat-
ters were still unsettled. For example,
what is the proper angle at which the
helmet should be perched above the
pompadour, and whether a veil should
be adjusted over the aforesaid hel-
One of the ways, it is said, to "cor-
rupt" an anarchist is to make him
rich. One way to cure a "leader" of
men out of work is to offer him a Job.
In Boston recently an agitator collect-
ed a band of unemployed, a singularly
well-dressed and not disorderly throng.
When they were led up to the free
employment bureau which Massa-
chusetts maintains, only one-quarter
of them filed applications. There are
four classes of unemployed—those
who will not work, those who will
work only at a special kind of task,
those who cannot work, and those who
are willing to do any honest work,
ggf The first two classes owe an immense
debt to society. With respect to the
other two classes, the debt is on the
other side. We have to divide the
classes pretty carefully before we be-
ll gin to solve the problem of the unem-
MR. SULLIVAN MUST GO
ILLINOIS DEMOCRATS WON'T
LIVELY TIMES JUST AHEAD
Mr. Bryan Will Be Asked to Keep Out
ot This State Factional
Chicago, 111., March 16.—Democrats
of Illinois are greatly excited over the
life and death struggle for supremacy
between William Jennings Bryan and
Roger C. Sullican, National Commit-
teeman from this State. After a long
conference between. Bryan lieutenants
Saturday it was announced that Sulli-
van must retire and that no man rep-
resenting his ideas or methods could
be selected to succeed him.
Up to the time of this open decla
ration of a war of extermination, it
had been hoped that the Bryan-Sulli-
van feud could be smoothed over dur-
ing the Presidential campaign. Sulli-
van had declared for Bryan, and the
political surface seemed smooth until
it was violently agitated by the Bryan
Friends of both factions admit that
the fight is likely to spread outside the
State and may result In pyrotechnics
at the National Convention.
Mry Bryan will arrive in Chicago
today. His friends will hasten to as-
sure him that there is no antagonism
to him personally, or to his Presiden-
tian aspirations, and that he will be
unanimously endorsed by the State
Convention. It is also extremely like-
ly that he will be informed that it will
be to the best interests of all con-
cerned if he keeps his hands off the
personnel of the Illinois State Com-
mittee, and especially the identity of

Washington, March 14. — Admiral
Evans' battleship fleet, after leaving
San Francisco, will visit Hawaii, Sa-
moa, Melbourne and Sydney, Aus-
tralia; the Philippines and return to
New York by way of the Suez Canal.
Secretary Metcalf announced the fu-
ture movements of the fleet after th<
Cabinet meeting Friday. It will leave
San Francisco on July 6 for "our Pa-
cific possessions," as Mr. Metcalf
The vessels will first touch at Ha-
waii, where they will coal. After that
they will go to Samoa. Following this
up, they will visit Australia, where
they will stop at the cities of Mel-
bourne and Sydney, the invitation of
the Austrlaian Government to visit
that country having been supplement-
ed by a more cordial order from the
British Ambassador, Mr. Bryce.
Leaving Australia, the vessels are
to go to Manila, and while in the Phil-
ippine islands the annual target prac-
tice will be held. Thence the return
will be made to the United States by

EIGHT PEOPLE DEAD.
Terrible Explosion in Natchez Whole-
sale Drug House.
Natchez, Miss., March 1G.—Six girls,
one woman and one man arej3^ad «s
the result of an explosion which
wrecked the five-story building of the
Natchez Drug Company Saturday aft-
ernoon. The property loss will aggre-
gate at least $100,000.
Urey Hotchkiss, a carpenter, who
was working on the third floor, heard
the explosion, saw that he could not
escape from the building, and jumped
from the third-story window. His neck
was broken, and when firemen rushed
to his <aid he was dead.
The Natchez Drug Company build
ing, which was one of the largest in
the city, was destroyed by Sre.
Eight girls were employed In the
chemical room, where the explosion oc-
curred, and of these two escaped. The
other six were working far back in
the room and had no chance, for their
way to windows and stairs was
blocked by obstacles, thrown in the
passage by the explosion. ;
"Mostly of Chicago," is the way a
man recently described his residence.
HIg characterization seems reasonable.
When he was six years old he cut off
one cf his toes with a scythe. When
he was eight he shot off two Joints of
one of his fingers. He ran away from
home when he was 14, and the frost
of a winter night toek off three more
toes and the tip of his nose. At 25 he
lost his entire right foot A drunken
halfbreed bit off an ear in the Klon-
dike, a Dakota corn-sheller took his
left forearm, and since then he has
lost three fingers, a Joint from another
finger and one eye.

this city to Port Arthur, a distance of
200 miles. The route of the proposed

Oklahoma City, Ok.: A Deputy
United States Marshal and five posse-
men of Ochleta Sunday encountered
the three bandits who robbed the bank
at Tyro, Kan. The robbers got the
drop on them and commanded them to
throw up their hands. The officers
complied. The robbers then took all
the arms from the officers and broke
them to pieces. The officers were
warned to turn back and quit the trail.
The robters then took to the woods.

Find Lost Spanish Mines.
Orange: E. T. Tisinger, a well
known real estate man of New Or-
leans, who was formerly a school
teacher in Houston, was in the city
recently and told of the discovery of
the lost Spanish mines, about eighteen
miles from Orange, in Louisiana, an<3
about six miles from the Sabine River.
He states that the community in which
the mines are located is honeycombed
with shafts and tunnels, all of which
indicate that a valuable ore, perh&ps
gold, was mined therefrom. Mr. Tising-
er states that he has an assay of some
of the sands of the shafts and thai
there is a large percentage of gold In
it. He stated, too, that a company
capitalized at $200,000 had been organ-
ized to go to work developing tne^e

Farmer Is Shot.
Houston: Will Gammage, a promi-
nent farmer, was fatally shot at Hemp-
stead by John Wilson, a Winchester

sult of a wrangle at Sunnyside, in
which Gammage shot at Dave Wilson
and two sons, wounding one son. The
men met Friday near a church, and
Wilson used a Winchester. The origin
of the row is not known.

PRESIDENT PREPARING ANOTHER
MESSAGE TO CONGRESS.
EXTRA SESSION IS POSSIBLE
President Determined to Compel As-
tion Even if It Results in
Washington, March 13.—Again Con-
gress is to be remind'ed of its neglect
of those recommendations which the
President made to it at the beginning
of the session, more than three months
ago. Another messags is in prepara-
tion, prompted by the same impatience
that inspired the President on the last
day of January to call the country's
attention to the dereliction of Con-
There is some doubt whether the
temper of this one Will be the same
as the temper of that one. On that
occasion the President spoke in terms
of aroused anger; on this, it is inti-
mated, he will speak with the plain-
tiveness of mingled reproof and ap-
peal. It may be questioned whether
the president's pen is capable of the
soft sentences expected; and further
it is sure that the President is more
incensed now than he was in January,
because of the refusal of Congress to
heed his legislative recommendations.
What he President will again urge
on Congress most pr.rticularly is the
enactment of an employers' liability
Statute, a law providing for the val-
uation of railroad property and a mod-
ification of the Sherman anti-trust act.

National Feeders' and Breeders' Show
Fort Worth, Texas, March 12.—It is
admitted by all who are qualified to
judge that the Fort Worth Fat Stock
Show, which began here yesterday
morning, is by long odds the best the
Southwest has ever seen. These same
authorities go further and declare that
the opening here yesterday was far
more satisfactory and auspicious than
were the openings at Chicago and Kan-
The show is being held in the great
Coliseum in Nort Fort Worth. This
structure is probably the largest of its
kind in the State. Its arena is 140
feet in width. Stretching upward from
it on either side are great tiers of
boxes and seats. The total width of
the building can not be less than 250
feet. The arena is 240 feet long, and
the length of the Coliseum is probab-
ly forty or fifty feet in excess of that.
Underneath the boxes and seats are
accommodation for 1000 head of cattle.
All these are taken, and yet behind
the structure is the Sarah Bernhardt
tent crowded to its capacity with cat-
tle alone. To the left is another great
tent in which about 2000 fine chickens
are exhibited, and across Exchange
Avenue, in front, every bit of the
horse, mule and jennet department of
the stockyards is given over entirely
to exhibits of finely-bred animals of
those kinds. Throughout, the display
is one of excellence of which this sec-
tion of the country has heretofore been
Chicago, it is admitted, annually
gives the greatest fat stock show in
the world, but such veteran cattlemen
as S. B. Burnett and Marion Sansom,
who make them all each year, assert
that the Fort Worth Show for 1908
beats the best of the others. If this
assertion came from any other source
it might be accepted with a large grain
of salt, but that these two men are sin-
cere in their statements and that the
facts here seem to bear them out can
not be questioned.
AIDS CHICORY INDUSTRY.
United States Government Seeks to In-
terest Farmers in Its Cultivation.
An increasing demand for chicory as a
coffee addition has caused the Unite<8
States Government to make a special ef-
fort to induce American farmers to grow
the plant. (See Bulletin 19, U. S. Depart-
ment of Agriculture.)
Chicory is a root grown something like
the beet or carrot, and has been used as a
food in various ways for centuries.
More than a hundred years ago during
the Napoleonic wars, the continent of Eu-
rope was cut off from the outside world,
and coffee, of which the Dutch in particu-
lar are very fond, became scarce and
high in price.
It was found that the chicory root,
dried, roasted and ground, made a most
excellent substitute. Soon many were
drinking it entirely, while others mixed
it with a certain proportion of genuine
These people found that it gave the
coffee a richer, fuller flavor, and that the
injurious effects which pure coffee has on
many were entirely overcome.
Since then chicory has been extensively
used by coffee merchants, and the prep-
aration of it as an addition to coffee
has become a large business, giving em-
ployment to thousands of men. Many
large factories in Europe and several in
America are manufacturing thousands of
Being as necessary an addition to cof-
fee, as salt is to soup, chicory has come
Into great demand, and to supply this de-
mand the government is interesting itself.
It promises an entirely new and profit-
able field of endeavor for the American

Dallas, March 12.—State Chairman
George A. Carden of the Democratic

Pressure has been brought to bear
upon him from both sides of the con

members of the committee have asked
for another meeting. It is expected
he says, that the committee at this
meeting will be favorable to the hold
ing of a primary for the selection of

recommend a like action in each dis

It is expected that they rill do so.

It is stated that the Interstate Com-

Should Have Steady Nerves.
The nervous system of the musician
is often very sensitive and any habit
like coffee drinking may so upset the
nerves as to make regular and neces-
sary daily practise next to impossible.
I practise from seven to eight hours
a day and study Harmony two hours,"
writes a Mich, music student "Last
September I was so nervous I could
only practise a few minutes at a time,
and mother said I would have to drop
my music for a year.
This was terribly discouraging as
I couldn't bear the thought of losing
a whole year of study. Becoming con-
vinced that my nervousness was
caused largely by coffee, and seeing
Postum so highly spoken of, I de-
cided I would test it for a while.
"Mother followed the directions
carefully and I thought I had never
tasted such a delicious drink. We
drank Postum every morning instead
of coffee, and by November I felt more
like myself than for years, and was
ready to resume my music.
"I now practise as usual, do my
studying and when my day's work is
finished I am not any more nervous
than when I began.
"I cannot too highly recommend
Postum to musicians who practise half
a day. My father is a physician and
recommends Postum to his patients.
Words cannot express my appreciation
for this most valuable health bever-
age, and experience has proven Its
superiority over all others." "There's
