Preserve this Numbor for the First Chapter of "The Bead Line." Written for thio Paper. TOPEKA, KANSAS, JANUARY 17, 1894. OFFICIAL STATE PAPER. The Dead LinCo By GIDEON LAINE, D. D. Whether in the next world a great gulf shall yawn Tween Dives In torment and Lazarus in bli.sa, 'Tis certain that fashion a dead 11. has drawn 'Twixt Lazarus and Dives in this. PREFACE 1 have never written a novel, and, at my time of life, busied with the active du ties which fall to the lot of a western clergyman, it would be useless for me to attempt such a task. I am about to write of real occurrences in the lives of living people, and oc currences of very recent date; and the reader must, therefore, pardon me if the places referred to in the following narrative are not, by the names I have given them, to be found on reliable maps of Kansas. Fictitious names of persons and places must be excused as but a proper con cession to the feelings of the persons who were actors in the scenes I am about to descr...

fastened between two spokes of the buggy wheel in such a way that, at a fearful cost of agony to the unfortu nate victim, the Jimb acted as a sort of brake which prevented the wheel from revolving and made it merely drag. The old man's arms were thrown out as if clutching for support, but in reality he had already been rendered uncon scious. Almost directly in front of the Carlington residence, the horses, with the buggypole and the traces, became disengaged from the vehicle, leav ing it standing there, while the fright ened animals kept up their mad career till they reached the door of the livery stable where they belonged. Imme diately a crowd gathered about the prostrate form of the old man, who seemed to be dead. His head and h is hands were bloody, and his face had been terribly lacerated and bruised. Kate hastily called Dr. Carlington, who ran out. The crowd made way for him, and he was speedily at the side of the old man, who had been laid on his back by kind hands. "Is he de...

maaonrv. the reflection cams to me that there stood crovernment. I im agined an obscure, friendless, penniless man dragged toward that building; I compared its collossal proportions with his puny form. I saw tne iremoung terrified wretch, hand-cuffed and hope less, enter the portals to leave life, as well as hope, behind, and to have the soul crushed out of him. If there must be jails and scaffolds if our state of so ciety is so diabolical that these things are necessary m neaven s name way should the way to them be made even more inhuman than the things them selves? Yes, as a rule, policemen are heartless wretches. No good man can remain long a policeman and remain a good man. It should not be so, but they look upon the poor as public ene mies because they are poor, and spy upon them as such. There is not a police court in this country, flippantly as the newspapers speak ot its doings, but every week enacts once at least the tragedy of a slain human soul." "If I were president or g...

TJbXBl ADVOOATB. 5 THE SAME OLD GAME OP 2H3BEP EESEinATIOI. The Capital of January 12 quotes from an editorial in the Advocate, in which we had treated the proposition to adopt the single financial plank of our platform as the sole issue in the next campaign, and proceeds, as is its custom, to misstate and misrepresent our position in the most unwarranted and unscrupulous manner. It rep resents us as abandoning our former position and the remedies for exist ing evils which we have formerly ad vocated. and adopting an entire change of base. It says: It is a tremendous change of base from the demand for cheap money as the solu tion of the whole problem to the brushing aside of the money question as something petty and irrelevant from which no good would oome. It would be difficult to concentrate more misrepresentation in an equal amount of space. The Capital very well knows that the article from which it quotes was written in oppo sition to any such change of base as it refers to, and...

0 THE JEO VALJEAH3 OP OUK DAY AHD OODUrEY. Jeaa Valjeau's. Victor Hugo's great character in "Les Miserable," be longed to a poor peasant family of La JJre, France. His parents died while he was very yonng and he grew up in the family of a sister. On the death of the sister's husband he assumed the duties of a father to the seven helpless children, and gave to the family such support as he could This continued while work lasted. On a hard winter came when "Jean had no work to do, and the family had no bread. No bread, literally none, and seven children!" Con fronted by this situation, Jean Val ofnla frnm a baker a loaf of JVUU bread with which to feed the starv ing children. He was arrested, con victed by the court and sentenced to five years at the galleys. Let Victor Hago tell in a few words, without de tail, the fate of the family: What beoame of his sister? What beoame of the set en children? Who troubles him self about that? What beoomes of the spray of leaves when the stem of t...

Editor Advocate: -The offioial state directory, known aa the Kansas "Blue Book," compiled under the direction of Secretary of State Oaborn, approved by the executive council, and issued last July, is an important state document, exhibiting to the people of the state its official machinery and the cost of main taining the same. In looking through this book of more than 100 pages, one cannot fail to be impressed with the idea that the state of Kansas is very liberal in the way of official salaries, and exceedingly so in many instances. Many people in this state have enter tained the idea for a number of years that the salaries of public offioialsare too high far in excess of the salaries paid for similar duties performed in business or commercial avocations, and whatever the purpose may have been for issuing this official directory, it is cer tainly timely, and will give the taxpayers of ...

THE ABVOOATB. CONCERNING KANSAS. 2JOTE3. Frank R. Forrest ia holding meetings in Mitchell and Cloud counties this week. Mrs. W. A. Harris, the most estimable wife of Congressman Harris, died at her home in Leavenworth county last weak. A Washington dispatch says the indi cations are that the Second district con test between Moore and Funston will be decided on the 21st in favor of Moore. The present state board of public works, appointed by Governor Le welling, is a good one, and is making a record by its economio management of publio buildings that will be a credit to the state. Since being left out of the secretary ship of the state board of agriculture, Martin Mohler can devote more time to the study of political questions, of whioh he was wont to talk bo much while knowing so little. Whoever wants to become familiar with "Fungicides upon the germination of corn," should send for the circular re cently issued from the state agricultural college.

Zercher, assistant secretary of state, making: & comparison between the pres ent and past state administrations, as to the expenditure and saving of state funds. Mr. Zaroher was prompted by the following reasons to make this com parison: The republican press naa cor the past year been pretending to run a "campaign of education," and while do ing so they have steadily maintained that this is the most extravagant ad ministration ever known to the state. Mr. Zercher supplements his state ments with two propositions: First So far as a comparison of legislative ex penses is concerned if it be fair to say that the present administration is Popu list when the Populists have the gov ernor, the appointing power and the senate, the confirming power, and the republicans have the house, then it will b...

He writes in the current number of the Political Science Quarterly. Instead of attempting to compute the property holding of the rich, he strives to ascertain how much cf the national wealth the masses of the people possess. The census bureau took from every family in twenty-two states and territories answers to the queetions whether it owned or hired the farm or home occupied, and the extent cf the incumbrance on owned farms and homes, if any, with the value of the property. The results are believed to be fairly rep resentative of the whole country. Assum ing this to be so, 32 per cent of the farm families and 63 per cent, of the home families in the country are tenants. Among farm owning families 30 per cent carry mortgage d...

ADVOCATE, 11 MTJ3T THE MASSES STARVE? What la to Be the Outooma of the Pie ent Financial Condition? What ia to be the outcome of the prea ent financial condition? Ia it possible that we have reached a point where the masses must starve because there is too much to eat, to go olad in raja because there is too much clothing, cold because there is too much fuel, and houseless be cause there are too many houses? Paradoxical as this may seem, without a wise solution of the fiaancial question this would seem apparently true. I have been acquainted with the condition of the masses and connected with organiza Uons for forty five years, but never at any time have I seen bo many nnem ployed and looking for work in vain. Manufactories are closing down, mer chants cannot maka collections, and every day adds to the gloom of the day preceding. We hear the question asked a hundred times a day, what is the cause of the p'esent condition? The answer comes almost invariably the si me a laok of confid...

13 GREAT PE0BLT1MS SOLVED By Getting at the Bottom Principles on Which They Are Based- NO. III. Editor Advocatf: We have now seen, by reference to the tariff, how readily po litical problems can be solved by getting at the bottom of them and ascertaining the principles on which theyare based and the DhilosoDhv of their operation. And so of all other problems of a like nature. Let us apply the rule to one or two others to the bankicg system of the country and to the immunity from pun ishment extended to Jefferson Davis, the president of the southern confederacy during the war of the rebellion. No one subject ever perplexed the common mind more than the action of ourau thoritiea towards Jefferson Davis after he was taken prisoner and in the hands of the government. That the archcon spirator and source of all our tribula tions and sorrows growing out of the war, as he was denounced, should be turned loose upon the world again un punished and be permitted to die a natural death and be d...

"Just as if you had been at workV Kate joined in the laughter, though she saw nothing to laugh at. She laughed from sympathy. "Well. then, you have got to do this. If you refuse I'll leave the house and the country this minute. You shall go to college, now. So listen to this prop osition. When you get through college, and get to be a great somebody like I dreamed you had become, you will have money. Lots of money. I am willing to bet all I have that you will pick up a fortune easily, once you get through college." Kate's eyes fairly danced at the pros pect of future greatness. He had touched the right chord at last. He saw his advantage and pursued it. "Now, listen," he continued.

He knew nothing of Coleridge, but, from the sermon of a preacher whom he had loved ever since for preaching that one sermon on love for the inferior animals, he had learned the lines from "The Ancient Mariner." "He prayeth well who loveth well Both man and bird and beast. He prayeth best who loveth best All things both great and small ; For the dear God who loveth us, He made and loveth all." One Thanksgiving day, while at home, he played a "practical joke" on his mother which she has not yet sus pected. Coming down in the morning earlier than the rest, he chanced to spy in the pantry a trap in which three mice were imprisoned, and he not only turned the culprits loose, but so ar ranged the trap door that, while it would lift easily enough, no amount of tugging at the tempting bait by a hungry mouse could close the trap and ...
