Columbia fire hall Wednesday evening for tbe purpose of discussing
civic affairs and to select and endorse candidates for the municipal
election next week. Tbere was a
large attendance of ratepayers.

a manner that proved satisfactory
to every one present. P. H. Donaldson was selected secretary.
Tbe financial condition of tbe
city was discussed by Messrs. Woodland,   Neil   McCallum,   Henniger,
F. J. Miller and others. Mr. McCallum stated tbat wben be was
chairman of tbe finance committee
tbe tax rate wse only 20 mills, and
tbe city was never in better financial condition than it was when he
left the council. All the speakers
agreed that io tbe absence
of the annual statement not much
light could be thrown on the pressnt
status of tbe city's finances.
Neil McCallum was put in nomination for mayor. Mr. McCallum
at first flatly refused to enter tbe
contest, but on being pressed by
everybody in tbe room, he said be
would give a definite answer in a
few days after he bad familiarized
himself witb tbe financial condition
of tbe oity.

- Farm Women Will Erect a    Fitting
I    Memorial to Her Who Blaied the
Way to the Gulden West
i    At the second annual session, of the
1 International congress ot Farm Wo-
I men, held ill    1-elhblidge   the    laBt
week of October, the keynote was the
. betterment ot country lite, the lessen-
! ing of Uie burdens of the farmer's wife
and mother, the adoption of methods
and  devices that  will  conserve the
woman, and the improvement of the
home-, the country church aud the rural community.     The speakers numbered many men and women ot note
including Dr. John A. Widstoe. Hon.
Martin Burrell, Mta.a AH Kuli Kahn,
Miss Alice Bavenhill, Dr. Liberty H.
Bailev, Alexander   Aaronsohn,   Mrs.
John Harbcrt, Mrs. Alberta Kepper,
Rev.  Matthew Brown   McNutt   and
Prof.  Geo.  W.  Putbam.
The Congress elected Mrs. John
Havbert of Mauzanola, Colo., president, and re-elected Mis. John T.
Burns, secretary by acclamation. Oklahoma City was chosen as the next
meeting place.
The closing si sslou was marked b?
lhe decision, to raise a pioneer fund
with which to erect a large moiium-nt
in bronze to the first farm woman ot
the golden west. A model was
shown ot a farm womau standing on
a. doorstep with one arm euciroliiij.

eyes looking toward the setting sun
across tlle great prairie farm, depleting tho evening hour when the husband and father, the pioneer and
home builder, was due to return from
! Ms day's toll ln the field.
i The suggestion of this paying tribute to the noble woman who flrst
blazed tho way across the desert
prairies originated with Charles Ohrls-
tadora of Point Loraa, Calif., and the
I young sculptor who had submitted
| -..he- model desired that his name be
kept secret until the accomplishment
of his great work.
I A commilteo was appointed lo further the raising of a fund of $150,-
000 within one year, comprising Miss
Irma B. Mathews of Oklahoma City,
Okla; Mrs. R. W. Charles of Mani-
tou, Man., and Mrs. John T. Bums of
Oklahoma City, Okla. The Canadian
delegates started the popular subscription with $47.60.
Tho plan of subscription is to urge
a popular contribution to the. fund In
30 cent payments. The organization
to curry on the campaign in every
state will be named by the committee
at an early date. In the meantime
those desirous of contributing their

Advantages and Saving by Using
The Loading Platform
In thji writing we desire to put betoro o.ir Western Farmer!!1 the
saving and advnutagc of loading grain dlrec'. on cars. Shipping grain
through an elevator, it matters no', whether a Government elevator or
one run by an elevator company or individual owner, does not. add
the loan fraction of a cent to the value of ;be grain, nor does it "give
the farmer any better-change ot marketing It to advantage than whon
loaded direct on cars. But ioadlng direct sn cars ctttg out ln the first
Place tLe elevator charge, winch Is usually 114c. per bushel, say
$17.SO on a thousand bushel car. Tho elsvator ^ockago is also
saved: this may bc worth more or less, depflnding partly on how dirty
the grain Is, but mostly nn the .farmer's ab'lity la holding his own
with .he elevator man tatting It In. On tho average tbe dockage
may bt considered worth "c per bushel lo the farmer, or say $30 per
car of i,000 bushels. Whon grain is loathd direct luto car over the
Loading Platform, the farmer knowt! for sure that it la his very own
grain that will be graded by the inspector, si.d that he will without
doubt receive the full and exact outturn ot his car at whlohever terminal elevator It is unloaded; for all grain 's unloaded from the cars
under government "supcrlnlcndancc ond weighed by properly qualified
government Welshmen under tho rules an,l rtipervislon of the Dominion Government Board of Groin Commissioners..
Ot -ourso, It makes no difference in our loading of the tarmeri*
grain whether it has been shipped through an elevator or over the
Loading Platform, but It can easily be seen from what we have stated
above where the farmer's advantage lies, w'.en jt saves him around
$50 or more on every car he ships.
We continue to act as the farmers' agen' lli looking after and disposing ot carlot shipments of wheat, oats, barley and flan strictly on
a commission of 1 cent per bushel. We are not connected with,
nor Interested In any elevator companies nv elevators, cither loeal or
terminal, neither are we track buyers, in fact, we never buy farmers' grain on our own account, but only to i.mdlo and dispose ot-ths

The municipal campaign was
started WVtlnesoay night, wben the
ratepayers of the West ward met
and entlorsed candidutes for mayor,
aldermen and school trustees. Then
a lull occurred until today. This
afternoon a number of prominent
citizens induced G. M. Fripp to enter the mayoralty race. As far 68
the contest for chief executive is concerned, Mr. Fripp's candidature
nullifies the action taken by the
residents of the West ward, in istnuch
as Mr. McCallum, who was the
choice of that ward, did not give
the meeting definite assurances tbat
the would accept the nomination,
and he has siuce signified hie intention of keeping of tbe contest. This
cuts the mayoralty candidates down
to Mr. Fripp and the present mayor
(it is taken for granted that Mr.
Gaw is in the field, but not in the
race). Mr. Fripp should prove an
easy winner. The citizens need
only to compare his record as mayor
witb the record of the present incumbent of the office to justify them
in giving him their enthusiastic
Some very good aldermanic timber has heen brought out in the Eust
ward. The names most frequently
mentioned are those of H, E Woodland. W. K. C. Manly, J. A. Smith
and Fred Downey. A delegation
could be picked from these names
tbat should be able to pull the city
out of tbe peculiar situation into
which the present municipal ad
ministratiion has brought it.
How Trees Live and Die
Trees literally breathe, inhaling
oxygen and exhaling carbonic' acid
gas. The leaves are the lungs of the
tree. On the lower surface of the leaf
are vast multitudes nf minute moths
or openings (HlO.OOO to the square
inch, it is estimated) which admit
the air and expel the carbon.
There are other openings, called
lenticels, in the bark dots and lines
which can be eiaily seen on the
twigs and smooth branches, which
help tbe leaves just as the pores ol
the skin help the lungs. The perspiration of plants is technically
known as transpiration.
The exhalation of water from the
leaves is very great. Thut from a
large oak is estimated at 150 gallons
a day during the summer. The evaporation of water from the forests is
fully as important as that from tbe
ocean, if not more so. The ocean
alone could not produce rain enough
to sustain vegetation.
The tip endB of the tree roots ab-
l irb moisture from the ground even
in zero weather, but the passage of
water fn m the roots up the trunk is
r.-larded until winter relaxes its hold.
The largest roots anchor tbe tree to
the soil and do but little else. The
slender rootlets and the tips of the
large roots collect all that part of
lhe tree's food which comes from the

leaves nnd the rootlets. While they

rainy weather and throughout the
winter. The growing season is very
ftiort, ending by midsummer.    The
summer drouths cut off or diminish
the supply of water. The leaves are
battered and eaten by insects,
A long period af rest is essential
that twigs may harden and the wood
ripen, Careful preparation for winter
takes the places of further thickening of the trunk or lengthening of
the limbs. The twigs and stems and
roots m'uet be stocked with food.
The trees strive to take in all tbe
nutritious parts of each leaf before it
casts it off When winter comes it
generally finds the tree ready. The
lenticels are sealed during the winter to prevent the breathing away of
the tree's moisture.
Each leaf is a laboratory, where
minerals and gases, water and sunshine nre made into nourishment for
the living issu», from which comes
wood, cork, fioweL fruit and a large
number of gums, oils, essences and
perfumes which have become indispensable in art, manufacture and
The leaves take charge of the
nourishment of the tree as soon ns
they open. They prepare food only
in the daytime, and in the presence
of the sunlight; the more warmth
Ihe more work. They make a complex substance known as starch,con
taining carbon, oxygen and hydrogen. The tree finds its growing season inaugurated when it is supplied
with foi ag*. Each leaf is a builder.
A larger sugar maple is estimated to
have 432,000 leaves, presenting to
the sunlight nn aim of half an acre.
The wood of the tree is nnt alive,
neither is the bark. But between the
hark and the wood is n peculiar cellular substance known as cambium,
which is the living part of the tree,
frnm which new tissue" are developed. This ministry by the leaves is
what lenghtens the hranches and
roots and adds to the tree's diame
ter. The upward mounting of the
sap remains one of ths unexplained
mysteries of tree life. If a tree is
girdled it usually dies because the
descending sap can not reach the

Newspaper Law
1. A postmaster is required to give
notice by letter (returning the paper
does not answer the law) when a subscriber does not take his paper out of
the postofiice, antl state the reason for
its not being taken. Auy neglect to
do so makes the postmaster responsible to the publisher for payments.
2. If any person orders his paper
discontinued he must pay all arrearages, or the publishers may continue
to send it until payments are made,
and collect the whole amount whether
the paper is taken from the office or
not. There can be no legal discontinuance until payment is made.
3. Any person who takes a paper
out of the post office, whether directed
to his name or not, or whether he has
subscribed or not, is responsible for
the pay.
4. If a subscriber orders his paper
stopped and the publisher continues to
send it, the subscriber is bound to
pay for it if he takes it ont of the
post office. This proceeds upon the
ground that a man must pay for what
he uses.

leaving them uncalled ior, is prima

and It ran something like this:
Coat on third peg left baud corner

cbalr by bed, collar on door-handle,
tie through key ot door, vest on floor
by window, cuffs on bedstead knobs,
shirt ou portmiintcau, sockB on gasbracket, boots outside door, professor
ln bed.
This worked splendidly, and next
morning tlie dear old thing collected
his wardrobe with lightning rapidity,
until ho came to the last Item on bis

It is the essay on divorce which bas

On the subject of the indissolubility
of marriage tbere ls nV doubt that tbe

from the heart when she declares herself in favor ef divorce. She argues
tbo matter at some length.
In her preface tbe infanta says tbat
she has been placed near enough to
