It would be interesting as well as surprising if the
amount "Style" costs the United States yearly could be
ascertained. While the men would have to- answer for a
small portion of it the greater part would be chargeable
to woman; for it is the ever changing styles in her wear
ing apparel that is responsible for the larger part of the
CSThe merchant, especially the merchant of the medium
and smaller cities, dealing in women's goods has in the
changing styles his greatest problem. He does not know
how long any given style is to be the proper thing, and
hence has no means of judging as to the size of his stock.
For this reason he takes big chances if he orders much,
and consequently is handicapped in carrying as large a
selection as he would like, or as the demands of his trade
actually require. On top of this he must jump the price
pretty stiffly to protect himself against a sudden change
of fashion. A short time ago the ladies, God bless 'em,
were hobbled and practically hog tied so far as their
skirts were concerned. The material in those hobbled
skirts was practically worth about what it would bring
as rags when the fashion changed. What the merchants
had left in stock was dead waste, for a woman might as
w ell be out of the world as out of style.
It is the same with every change of fashion, the mer
chant is left with a lot of dead stock. It would be indeed
an interesting story if the sum total of the loss thus
caused could be learned. Not only the actual loss in the
dead stock but the increased price the wearers must pay
in order to protect the merchant against this loss.
In the early days of Kentucky a rich English squire
came over to this country, and purchasing a large tract
of wild land, found his principal amusement in chasing
foxes, which were numerous, with his big pack of hounds.
One day the fox having given the hounds a long run, the
old squire got lost in following the pack and riding hot
haste trying to pick up the trail again he ran across a
tall, lank Kentuckian who was chopping wood. Pulling
up he sputered out: "Say, my good man, did you see any
thing of a pack of hounds after a fox, pass this way?
"Wall," said the native resting one foot on the log and
squirting a mouthful of tobacco juice at a mark ten feet
away, "I reckon I did squire." ,
"'Ow were they running?" asked the impatient Eng
lishman. , , . , , . i
"Wall, Squire," was the reply, "it was kind o nip and
chuck, but if anything, the dogs was a lettle ahead.
It looks as though wheat had about reached its limit.
Fluttering around $1.82 in Chicago, going up or down as
outside influences bear upon it. Heavy rains in Argen
tine saving or partly saving the crop now getting well on
toward maturity. A short time ago this crop was looked
upon as a failure, and this possibly cutting out of the
world's markets 15,000,000 bushels of its bread supply,
was one cause of wheat's climbing so near the $2.00 mark.
The assurance of at least half a crop, or perhaps more,
caused the reaction. While no one can forsee what
speculators may do with the cereals, it looks as though
the price would be lower rather than higher.
Bread having been advanced in price, or the size of
the loaf reduced in most places, on account of the high
price of wheat, it will be interesting to watch the re,
luctance with which the price will be reduced should
wheat drop back to normal again.

Since all the campaign flags are furled, the

in this old world is one who was defeated.

eyes a-brimming; "there are no sore spots

wise and sane endeavor? No! One cam
paign's enough to spoil a patriot forever.
The lust for office in his blood he'll never quit his run
ning, although he meets a nasty thud whenever he goes
gunning. To save the dear old spangled flag, and serve
the darling people, all through his years he'll chew the
rag, on forum, stump and steeple. For weeks and months
our weary ears to piffle have been treated; now for the
winners we have cheers, and grins for the defeated.

Houston,' Texas, Oct. 15. To the
Editor of the Capital Journal: As a
student of sociul justice I am interest
ed in knowing if it is right and proper
for the supreme court of a sovereign
state to extend a heavy examination
fe"c from n young man who seeks ad
mission to the bar upon examination,
then hold an examination and official
ly admit through written evidence that
the young man passed the bar examina
tion, yet refuse to grant him a license,
and also refuse to return his examina
tion fee.
I am only seekingjenlightcnment. I
am groping iu the dark for that which
is riglir. Can supremo court judges
permit this practice and still hold the
sacred confidence of the people!.
Perhaps the applicant fur admission
who paid his fee nud passed the bar
examination was obscure and of little
influence. Would this alter the-un
yielding law of right .Should this fact
lie sufficient to deny him Ills birth
right of justice? .Should not justice be
accorded to the weak us well as the
strong'! Is nny system of justice tliut
fulls short of this ideul worthy of the
1111 me?
It is not my purpose to chiimiiiou the
cause of this particular young man. 1
desire rather to call attention to a gen
eral principle. Is it right? 11 it. is right,
then let every struggling young man
who applies to the privute committee of
lawyers who examine applicants under
stand that if this committee desires to
throw him down and keep his money,
that 1-s their privilege, as well as their
authority. If the young man is told to
try again, and is thrown down again
and again, let him understand that he
has 110 body or tribunal to which he
may appeal except that sense of justice
Hint lies in the hearts of the people
and which is the source of all law and
the authority of nil courts.
. Let me be specific. A certain young
ninn took the bar examination in Ore
gon in May, J 1 5. The examination was
conducted by a committee of lawyers
who luul been chosen for that purpose
by the supreme court. On the opening
day of this examination the youug man
was writing answers to questions in
grammar and composition when one of
the examining committee came to his
desk and took all papers and answers
from him, because it wus the noon hour.
The young man was suffering from nn
n thick ot acute iiiuigestiou. (Ibis, of
course, will evoke a smile of incredulity
troin any crooked lawyer). Urammar
and geography the youug 111 nil did not
romplete, but supposed that he would
be allowed to complete them in the aft
ernoon. Having completed all other af
ternoon examinations he asked to be al
lowed to answer the questions he could
not rench while iu the grip of pain. The
privilege of answering these questions
was denied him, although he had several
hours of idle time on his hands and the
examination was still iu progress. He
was assured, however, that his, failure
to submit answers to questions in gram
mar and geography would not be held
ngain-st him, under the circumstances, in
grading his papers. He passed the law
examination and made passing grades in
every academic branch iu which he was
examined. But the committee of law
yers refused to certify his name to the
-supreme court for a license because he
submitted no answers to the questions
he was refused permission to answer.
The chairman of this committee wrote
the young man a letter in tfhieh he used.
this language: "1 find that you passed
the bar examination satisfactorily."
Still the young man was not granted a
certificate, and the clerk o'f the supreme
court has definitely refused to return
