The Commercial Club
Takes Progresive Action
To Look After Oiled Roads and Carnagie Library
At its regular monthly session last
Friday nigh*, tiie Commercial Club of
this city went on record as being most
pr -gressive and took up two most in
teresting and up-to-date questions for
action. A Mr. Curtiss of Omaha, rep
resentative of tiie Standard Oil Co.,
was present by invitation of tbe club
to give facts and figures in regard fo
the oiling of our street;-and tiie roads
leading into the city. Mr. Curtiss
gave a most interesting talk on tbe
nne of oiling streets and roads, an
swering all questions pertaining
thereto, and showing most conclusive
!y tiie makihg of splendid and
substantial roadways by the above
method had passed the experimental
stage and was w hat the country town
needed in Lite absence of tiie cost and
undesirability along that line of at
tempting paving in towns of tiie
smaller class, lie showed that the
cost of oiling stieets the first year
would not exceed that of sprinkling
them, while the future cost of keep
ing them in splendid condition by
small applications of oil. would not
exceed one-fourth tiie cost of sprink
ling. In regard to tiie oiling and
maintenance of roads leading into tiie
city, he gave conclusive evidence to
U*e club that tiie cost of oiling and
maintaining highways JO feet in
width would not exceed a very small
per cent of the cost of hauling dirt
onto said roads for the purpose of
grading which would have to be done
over again each year, while tiie oiled
roads once gotten in shape could be
maintained in splendid condition
after tiie first year at a verv small
cost for re-oilingsame. A committee,
composed of Mayor Pedler, Council
man Lee and the editor of tiie North
western. were on motion appointed
to confer with Mr. Curtiss as to
further information along the above
lines, w hich met after the club meet
ing and went over the matter
thoroughly with that gentleman, get
ng figure* of cost, data of time it
would take to do the work of putting
the streets and road* in shape for the
filing process and tiie manner of tiie
latter worji. the durability of roads
< iied and the cost of maintaining tiie
- a me after the first year These
figures, date, etc., will be before the
club at its next meeting, and we be
lieve will prove conclusively the feas
ibility of taking up that system of
making good roads and absolutely
free of dust, and also be substantial
from every standpoint. All inter
ested should be at the next meeting
of the Commercial Ciub and we opine
there will be little or no opposition
to tiie method being taken up speed
ily. The above matter was up before
tiie Club at its last meeting, because
of its importance and further be
cause of the unsatisfactory proposition
of sprinkling the streets, for which it
seems not enough water can be fur
nished by the city, the demand for
water for other purposes being so
strong that it negatives the street
sprinkling proposition.
Tiie other important matter com
ing before Uie Commercial Club was
that of securing a Camagie library
for Loua City. Discussion brought
forth the facts that a Camagie li
brary could be secured for this city
with little or no co6t, if gone ahead
| with by right methods. A cOm
1 mittee composed of E. G. Taylor, J.
11‘- Leininger and R. J. Nightingale
was on motion appointed to look into
j the matter and report at the next
i meeting. If. as was shown to the
members, by Mr. A. E. Chase, who
lias made a study of the qnestlon,
such library can be secured for this
city, we have no doubt but that steps
will be taken toward that end.
Has Hurt The Cause
! Roosevelt Given a Scoring by
Senator LaFollette lias written the
| following editorial:
“Until Roosevelt came into the open
as a candidate for the presidency fiTe
months ago. there was a strong and
rapidly growing progressive move
. ment within the republican party. It
1 was based upon clearly defined prin
ciples. It stood forth as the repre
| sentarive of modern political thought
! on fundamental democracy. It had
assumed national proportions. It was
I united.
“Into this movement, when it gave
, promise of national success. Roosevelt
j projected his ambition to the presi
I dental third term. He speut weeks
j carefully planning a ‘spotaneous call’
I for himself. He responded by an
nouncing that he would try to be a
! retroactive candidate. His candidacy
began to drag. He and his friends
were in despair. Then came his de
feat in North Dakota. He became
“An enormous campaign fund was
raised. Headquarters were opened in
New York, Washington and Chicago
and states east and west. Newspaper
; w riters were engaged at large pay
to boom his candidacy. Special trains
were nired and the ‘receptive’ candi
date started in frantic pursuit of the
nomination. In the history of Arner
icsn politics there never has been in
a primary campaign for presidental
nomination an approach to the extrav
agant expenditures made in his cam
paign. Men notorously indentured
with the steel trust and the harvester
trust became his most active sup
porters. Leading reactionaries, stand
: patters and political bosses of the
Hanna and Quay sort became his close
; est political friends and represen
; taLives in many states.
“A number of new recruits came
to the republican progressive cause,
men who, before 1909, with three or
four exceptions, had either been iden
tified or opposed to the progressive
movement because they were then the
j supporters of Roosevelt, the ‘winner’.
: It mattered not to them that Roose
' velt had co-operated with Aldrich oa
legislation during the entire seven
'ears he was president. They forgot
that it was only when Roosevelt was
out of office and in Africa through
the united efforts of men who for
years had been fighting special inter
ests that the progressive cause be
came a national tight. Then it was
Taft in 1910, when Taft was denounc
| ing all progressives as ‘pirates and
| traitors,’ that he waited until little
1 more than a year ago, balancing the
j chances before deciding whettrer to
cast his lot with the progressives
in this presidental year, counting for
nothing with the class of progressives
who wanted to •win —not a real pro
gressive victory—just a victory.
“And they did win precisely that
kind of a victory. They carried over
whelmingly tlte great standpat states
of Illinois and Pennsylvania. That
stampede stamps the Roosevelt can
didacy with its true character. No
real progressive could have secured
anything like such a vote in either of
those two states. It had, however, the
outward seeming of success, the sovt
of success that intoxicates—that
catches the crowd. It enabled Roose
velt to win in two or three really pro
gressive states. Fort unately, it did not
enable him to secure the nomination
which would have compromised the
progressive movement and defeated
real achievement for years.
“Upon Theodore Roosevelt and his
followers rests the responsibility of
having divided the progressives in
their first national contest.
•Stimulated by an overmastering de
sire to win. he denounced loyalty to
conviction and principle as stubborn
selfishness. In the convention, they
put forward no platform—no issues,
they made no fight against the re
actionaries platform adopted, They
substituted vulgar personalities and
the course epithets of the prize ring
for the serious consideration of the
great economic problems and for the
time brought ridicule and contempt
upon a great cause.
“The progressive movement does
not consist of a few self-constitute
leaders. It consists of millions of
:thoughtful citizens, drawn together dy
a common belief in certain principles.
They will not permit encouragement
of special interests and political ex
pedience to secure control of the qre
gressive cause which is ultimatly to
redeem democracy and restore gov
ernment to the people.
Leaving the Farm
To retire and move into town was
the ideal of a whole generation of
American farmers. In many cases
the town was a rural village whose
urban advantages mostly in an op
i portunity to perch on thegaspipe raii
i ing in front of the postoffice and dis
’ cuss crops or watch a game of
checkers in the barber shop. If farm
ers have yearned to leave the country
for that mild taste of town life, can
they wonder that their sons and
daughters have flown to the city? If
the old folks found the farmsodreaiy
that they quit it the moment they
were able, what must it have been to
young people? The farm that was
only a place to drudge Jand save for
the sake of getting enough money to
quit it could never compete with the
city in attracting boys and girls.
Lack of knowledge made the farm
such a place. Farmers should be de
cidedly the best educated major class
in the nation. The diversity of their
business and the comparative isola
aion in which they work and live
require it. Generally speaking, the
city man has somebody over him to
map out a process embracing all the
latest improvements, and he draws
education automatically from the
crowd. The farmer who gains know
ledge only throngh his own hard, toil
some personal experience will prob
ably be ready by middle age to
quit the farm for any place where his
back does not ache.
Now there is a draft the other way.
Id the Northwest, we read, the de
mand for scientifically trained young
farmers exceeds the supply though
twelve hundred dollars a year and up
ward is offered for the service' of
promising agriculture-college grad
uates. The graduate in law or me -
cine who.can command twelve hund
red a year is very exceptionThose
young men who go to the farm with
knowledge will not be anxious to quit
it. Successful farming for them will
not depend primarily upon expending
the last possible ounce of muscle and
salting down the iast possible dime.
In their hands the farm will become
the ideal place to retire to—not from.

A Child’s “Fatal Penny”
In an artiele on“The Fatal Penny'
in the J uly Woman's Home Companioi
Mary Heaton Yorse describes the sick
ness that a child can buy with on<
cent. Following is an extract:
•‘Making one-cent candy is in itsel!
a large branch of the candy business
tons of it are manufactured every
year. The fundamentals of the trad*
are these: to give as large amount of
some sweet substance as is possible
for a cent: to make the substance in
to the most attractive shape: t<
ornament it with gaudv colors.
" It is perfectly astonishing how
much sweetness five cents can buy
For live cents you may buy six highly
colored candiesaboutthesize of mar
bles: all-day suckers, two for one cent
pink frothy marshmallow thing,
faintly smelling of banana-oil ant
shaped like a banana: two little met
made out of licorice paste; a taffy 01
a stick calculated to destroy the teetl
in record time_all these for tivt
cents. Quite a collection when yot
get it together for bulk. Its variet;
is pleasing to the immagination ant
its violent lines are as attractive ti
the primitive color sense of the chile
as any carefully planned Froebe
There is. indeed, no question to be
raised against this candy, except the
vital one: Is it good for the infant'
stomach? Do you think that the live
year-old digestion of your child wil
be bettered by receiving to itself :
slab of amorphous matter sweetenec
with glucose, flavored with mint. an<
colored with green vegetable dye. thi
whole concoction an inch and a h&l
wide and three inches long? Let mi
hastily say that non^ of the in

they are usually manufactured unde
santinary conditions, and the ingen

the' variety of their hues are certain!}
to be commended, but—are they good
for children to eat?
“Until the child is ten years old
at least, it seems not too muc.i to as!
that the mother should know all that
her child eats. It is during thus*
years that a child’s physical health is
being formed for good or ill. The con
tinual little gastric upsets, choleras
nauseas, and all the other minor ills
that keep children home from school
for a day or two are almost without
exception the result of injudicious
feeding. A great many of these ills
