They arc nmd and bound to fight,
Down in Kansas.
They've rolled up their sleeves, all
Down in -Kansas.
They are pawing up the soil,
And their blood is on the boil,
They arc after Standard Oil,
Down in Kansas.
They are tired of Standard greed,
Down in Kansas.
They refuse to longer bleed,
Down in Kansas.
If there's gore that must be shed
Rockefeller will be bled,
And they'll sure come out ahead,
Down in Kansas.
They arc making business hum
Down in Kansas.
They'll put Standard on the bum,
Down in Kansas.
For when she gets fighting hot
She is "Johnny-on-the-Spot,"
And they'll bump the trust a lot,
Down in Kansas.
They are mad and wading in,
Down in Kansas.
They are bound to fight and win,
Down in Kansas.
And the "system" might as 'well
Tuck its tail and run like fury,
For they've tolled its funeral knell,
Down in Kansas.
And wo all admire the pluck
Shown by Kansas.
Hero's a wish for her good luck,
Nervy Kansas.
When she lands on Standard's neck,
Makes the greedy "system" wreck,
Then the right will be on deck,

We are told by Dr. Osier that a man
is 'on the bum"
When he's past the age of forty that
his useless days have come;
That he's only fit for slaughter and a
nuisance to abate
When his two-score years have ended
and his day is growing late.
But I'll say to Dr. Osier that he's off
about a mile,
And his little fulmination only causes
mo to smile.
For I've passed the age of forty and
I'm feeling fit and fine,
Conscienco clear, digestion easy and a
good wife's hand in mine.

When a follow reaches forty, if he's
acted on the square,
Ho should find earth's choicest bless

Ho has learned life's richest lessons
and is then prepared to do
Something for the world he lives in

Forty, just the age for doing; let the

When a fellow keeps the peace by

The HUnl"
Colonel Clark B. Carr of Galesburg, 111.,
has published through 4A, C. McClurg
and company of Chicago) a delightfully
interesting a3 well as a very valuable,
book entitled "The Illini." Ho calls
it a Story of the Prairies, and in the
more than 450 pages of a handsomely
bound volume he presents the early
history of Illinois as it related to tho
pioneers and great leaders of thought,
many of whom it was his privilege to
know intimately,
Hi3 reminiscences of Lincoln and
Douglas are especially entertaining,
but ho Introduces a large number oE
characters into his connected story
which covers "The PJpneers," "Tlie
Political Upheaval and "The War
Times" of Illinois.
While the book will be especially
acceptable to the people of Illinois, It
will bo scarcely less appreciated by
thQ3e beyond the borders of tho state.
It is handsomely illustrated.
