Sho Hastens to Present Her CI aims
Ciieykknf., Wyo., Feb. '25. The ad
mission of four m.'W states is received
witli much satisfaction in Wyoming, the
opinion being strengthened that Wyom
ing's turn for adrmi-sion will now follow
very soon. The Wyomingites are eager
and unanimous for statehood. Democrats
and republicans alike are working for
admission. The territory cannot be
Counted as politically safe for either
party, and if admitted as a state is as
likely to be democratic as republican,
even though a . republican delegate has
been elected for the past three terms.
The population of the territory is grow
ing at the rate of 15,000 yearly. Outside
Capital is being attracted to the resources
of oil, coal and iron, and developments
are beiug made which arc bringing a
large immigration into the territory. A
number of lines of railway are heading
for Wyoning aud the coming year will
witness an amount of railway growth
unprecedented in the history of the terri
tory. An enabling act passed during the
present year will bring Wyoming in as a
sttte with population and wealth suffi
cient to rival many of the older states.

guess from your expression that there is
more in Mr. Tolideroll's love making than
you yourself imagine.
Mr. Tollderoll may say more about the
stage directions for the reconciliation

realism is not for a moment to bethought

Mr. Tollderoll should not be allowed tc

. Itafas Cook's Good Advice.
Rufus Cook, a civil and sanitary en
gineer, has addressed an open letter to
the city council of Minneapolis, in which
he makes some pertinent and valuable
suggestions on the subject of city sani
tation. He states that with the growth
of cities there is a constant tendency to
tho accumulation of unsanitary condi
tions. Sanitary work consists in the
application of preventive measures rather
than curative, the latter being the prov
ince of the physician. To insure this
sanitary work being fully carried out,
ample funds should be appropriated to
the health department.
People need to be taught that what
they eat, drink and breathe has an im
portant relation to their health and hap
piness, and to maintain human existence
in its highest state requires pure air,
pure water and pure food, and these sup
plemented by a pure soil. As purity of
air is first in importance, the best system
of heating and ventilation should be ap
plied to all public and private buildings.
A good plumbing law is one of the most
effective 6teps in sanitary progress that
tho city can possibly have. Mr. Cook
quotes from the New Jersey board of
health: "Most of our cities are 6till far
behind in tho details of approved sani
tary administration, and in those finan
cial provisions, therefore, which are nec
essary for the health of the people. In
the work of sanitary inspection and ad
vice, and in the general oversight of the
people, we find a field of operation which
might be largely extended to the great
advantage of our citizens." The Sani

A Standing Query.
"How is it," asks Thackeray, on one of
hLs most characteristic pagest "that the
evil which meq gay spreads bq widely
and lasts so long, whilst our good, kind
words, don't seem somehow to take root
and bear blossoms? Certain it is that
scandal is good brisk, talk, whereas praise
of one'g neighbor ia by no means lively
hearing. An acquaintance grilled, scored,
deviled and served with mustard and
cayenne pepper, excites the appetite;
whereas a slice of cold friend, with cur
rant jelly, is but a sickly, unrelishing

to the small women of the HU7BeTy.
