Populist conventions this year nie
doing some very funny things. In
Missouri they absolutely refuse to fuso
with their democratic allies and in
Iowa thoy adopt a batch of resolutions
that don't say a word about "stoon-tu-wun."
Tho domocrats havo given it out
that thoy will not bo satisfied with less

Chas. E. Hicks thu republican noiiii
neo for state representative is just tho
kind of a man that the people like to
voto for. Two years ago Mr. Hijks
was a candidate for II jut represonta
tlvo on tho republican ticket, and was
nboutlho only republican who came
out victorious, lie is no politician, he
is just a plain, holiest business man.
Ho did not seok tho nomination, it
came to him without a dissenting voto

lie is certainly capable of voting to tho

All this cry about blid's feathers on

ent thu sentimentalist should object to
tho wearing of gloves matte of tho skin
of nu "innocent kid "And furs strip
ped from tho backs of mink, snblo

should also eat nothing but vegetables.
It's no worso to wear tho feathers
than it is to eat tho animnl. Tho mar
hie season is again on ntnong tho smnll
boy. Hut, boys you should not play
marbles It is bad If you do you will
learn bad words. You say "vent,"
"pix,""roundces," "dubs" and other
wicked woids Hut it don't nibke
much diiTorcnco what tho men do
though They can Undo or swap
horses on Sunday, go hunting nnd
shoot inbhitsnntl birds, go llsliing and
drink water (?) out of a bottle, or do
most nny old thing Hut boys must be
good. If you enn got out on Sunday
nnd make n dollar it is all right, but to
enpngein tho low vulgar amusement
of playing marbles. A Kansas editor
is in n lienp of trouble. Ho recently
printed nn item stnting that a certain
resident, whoso namo ho did not give
hotter stop kissing the hired girl.
Tho next day twenty men called and
stopped the paper and accused tho ed
itor of meddling with their domestic
affairs. Thnt's iisunlly tho ense If
nn nttompt is made to givo someone a
"littlo dig" thoro nre generally all tho
way from ten to a hundred around tho
next day to confess that thoy too nro
guilty. Did you ever notice how amus
ing it is to watch some young ladies
whilo tnlking into a tolophone. Tho
bows nnd gesticulations nro very forc
ibly received nt the o.her end of tho
wire. Also tho bewitching smilo and
tho pretty pout. And last but not
lenst tho pucker that appears on the
lips when tho "good-bye" comes
Wc aro not positive of the truth of this
but it was so reported to us by it man
who professes to have made a careful
study o the subject Did jou ever no
tice that in the spiing when tho young
people's fancy lightly turn to thoughts
of love it gives some old gossips some
thing to talk about. Tins spring has
been no exception. The worst of it ib
that nothing is too mean for thein to
say. They appear to take a great de
light in repeating a story that is in
tended to besmirch the character of
somo young woman or man. Every
time n story is repeated it is stretched
and in one day's time a young lady's
or n young man's reputation will be
transformed from a spotless white to
tako on tho appearance of n printing
oillce towel. Tho reputation nnd char
acter of anyone is neither a football or
a brickbat. Hy law you cannot handle
it to suit yourself No two or three
ohl smut mills can "cronoy" together
liko tho toothless old hags or witches
in tho cave of Mncboth and consign a
porson's moral standing to tho ash
pile. Shun them always and give no
crodonca to thoir stories a id presump
tions. Try and mako them believe
that that they havo fallen several de
grees in your estimation for repeating
stories which you know havo no foun
dation and only besmirch someone's
character. We may, if things keep up,
publish a gossip column. If we do
anyonn can write up and send in any
story thnt is told thtni, together with
tho names of all parties mentioned in
tho story, nnd who told it. The writer
need not necessarily givo his or her
name, Jus , givo tho name of the
party who tells tho story Wo would
have to have some authority to pro
tect tu from libel suits.
