THIRD PARTY WITHOUT LEADER
The Third Party, called by its mem
bers a Progressive Party, is without a
leader. Wh#n Senator LaFollette died
many persons were suggested as his suc
cessor. Senator Norris being among them.
Senator Norris does not want the place
and he is not bashful about saying so.
Quite a number of individuals and organ
izations wrote the Senator asking that lie
accept the leadership of their party, and
others went so far as take for gruted his
acceptance of the place. Writing to the
Progressive Political League of Manhat
tan that lie could uot understand how
it was taken for granted that he would
be a candidate for the place. Senator Nor
ris pointed out that lie opposed the or
ganization of a Third Party and took no
part in its movement. He pays tribute
to the patriotism of the insurgents bnt
adds that “it seems to me that what the.
country was suffering from most was too
The Senator gave some good advice in
this connection, especially to those per
sons who see no evil in anything their
“Party ties rest very lightly upon me.
and as I have said, my idea is that one
of the greatest evils of government is
that so many people tie themselves up
to a party, when as a matter of fact it
seems to me they ought to be independent
of all parties. Under existing conditions,
I presume parties are necessary, but it'
is a mistake to regard a party as any-*
thing but an instrumentality of govern
Tile Asheville Citizen thinks this mes
sage from Senator Norris a very timely
one. and “may carry discouragement to
the Third Party personnel." “Senator
Norris." adds the Citigen. “is often re- :
garded as unsound In his economic and’
liulitical thinking, but he is entirely right
in his belief that lack of parties is not
one of the evils of our body politic."

GRAVE OF BRYAN WILL
BE AMIDST COMRADES
Burial Friday Afternoon in Arlington
Cemetery Among Nation’s Heroes.
W ashington, July 27.—Near the crest
of a swelling slope, where sleep a great
company of the dead of many wars, the
American government today marked out
in Arlington national cemetery a final
resting place for William Jennings
His burigl there late Friday alter
noon with simple ceremony will fulfill
tus own oft-repeated wish. In life a
crusader for peace, he chose in death to
lie w-here the tombs of military men
look down upon the capital, amid the
beauties of the Virginia hills but yet
near by the towering memorials reared
to Washington and Lincoln.
The rifht he thus asserted to a place
in the nation's citadel of military dead
was liis by virtue of those stirring days
of “9.8" when he wore the uniform as
a colonel of volunteers. His grave will
be in that community of death where
sleep many comrades of the Spanish
American war. not for from the Dewey
manusoleutn and the monument that
honors those who died on the Maine.
Not all of the plans for Friday’s
funeral services had been arranged to
night but it seemed certain that the
commoner would be committed to liis
tomb witji only those ceremonies which
are fitting for a plain and humble citi
zen. No plans had been made to sound
for him the bugle call that’pays a last
farewell to the soldier, ndr to heap upon
liis bier the pompous tribue of a great
government for a fallen leader of the
people. Those of his friends who are:
doing for him the last earthly service
believe he would approve of no funeral
program but the simplest.
But in other ways, however, the gov
ernment and the nation will do what
they’are permitted to do to honor him.
By direction of President Cooiidge.

“HOME PAPER” WEEK

Kansas has no very large daily news

of a circulation over 60.000, Only five

But Kansas is well represented in rhe

These newspapers, chiefly because;
they print news of community interest,
go in the homes of the community .
An essay by a Kansas school child
on the Home Paper is typical of the

Totetey’s Wife Was So Jealous she In
(isted His Heroines Be Blond.
When Count Leo To’stoy was writ
ing his story. "By Accident.” which lie
finished only four months before his
death, he was forced to ehnnge his des
cription of his characters. He had re
presented the wife as an unpleasant,
tall brunette with shining eyes. At the
last minute, lie realized that Countess
Tdlsfoy might think it -had been intend-,
ed as a jiortrait of herself. So Tolstoy
transformed the character into a short."
This insane suspicion and jealousy
wttich Countess Tolstoy displayed to
ward her distinguished husband is fully
revealed, for the first time in the diary
of V. Bulg:tkov which is in the August
Tolstoy'-s friend and follower. Tchert-’
kov, was the storm center of Countess
Tolstoy's hatred. The scenes which she
made over the friendship between the
two. led Tolstoy to quit liis home. He
contracted pneumonia and died m a.
small railroad station.
Unfit Twain Was Match For Whistler’s
Mark Twain was the only iieeson who
ever got the best of Whistler in a bat
tle of wits. The great American artist
i had vanquished the European htimor
rists with biting satire. When one day,’
Mark Twain called upon him in his stu
-1 dio. The reau'.ting conversation is told
by Don Reitz in bis article on Whistler
i in the August McClure's Magazine.
Mark Twain wdlked about the studio
with an air of stupidity. He paused be

They got on after that.

policemen have been unable to determine
the identity of an infant whose partly
decomposed body was found on the farm
of A. M- Scales, near the city. Friday.
The body, wrapped in a dress which was
not entirely concealed by the shallow
grave, was found by negroes. Dr. W. W.

probably having lived one or two days.
It is thought the child had been buried
