The best defini- tion seems to be this: A weed is something that dry weather won't, or i-an't, kill. A Texas paper declares that "one must admit that all Texas farming land Is good." Really, must one admit so much as that? "Big sums paid for music add to living Is a prominent headline. The statement Is made that tve spend sir hundred millions a year for music.

BIG MEN, BIG IDEAS, BIG CITIES. An exchange publishes this emphat- ic statement: "Big men mean big cit- ies." I goes on o say that only when the people of a city have no vision when they fail to aspire to great things when they hesitate to make improve- ments because such Improvements mean some expenditure of money, then and then only does a city cease to grow. Big men with big ideas clo mean big cities. That does not necessarily mean that every man must be wealthy or that he must have an idea that is stupendous by itself. But it does mean that the majority of the citizens tire never satisfied with present con- ditions; that they want something better; that they are ambitious; tha they have faith in their city's future and are willing to back their faith with theiy energy and their ability ano their means. That is the way cities grow. It i: the way individuals educa tlon, !n morals, in material everything worth while. Every city that has amounted t anything has a big program. I has had big men. The majority of It people, of whatever station In lifi whether professional man, or mer chant or mechanic, have had bis Ideas are all big- men. Cedar Rapids and every other pro gressive city has forged ahead becaus It has still me who have had visions that materlai ized into splendid realities. Have a vision for fo your city. A BATTLE ROYAL. Political warfare of the flght-to-the finish sort is on in York stat and the finish will bo awaited with great deal of interest. The fight is be The flve cent piece la tho day labor- er of our coinage. It la the hardest working; and most successful bit at money In use In these United States. The twenty dollar gold piece Is Tery popular and is madly sought after In the best society; the flve dollar bill has millions of friends, and tha hard ullvw dollar can be found nestling In the pocket of almost every fraeborn eltt- zan. But none of these worfca like the flve cent piece. The rrieke! runs the street cars of tha nation, provides It with cigars and soda water, buys most of tts masasJnas, operates its slot ma- htnes and haa made tha moving plo- ure more powerful than the political rator. The nlckal haa built 100 acre brew- rieo and subway Vhere tha (3 bill has given up In de- pair tha humble nickel has stepped la and operated vast theaters. The quay- er ran the magazine business for many years, and made a mess ot It. ut when the nickel went Into the ame It put tha magazine on every owe stand and filled the American ome BO fuU of Sunday newspapers hat rather has to clear It out with a pitchfork on Monday morning. Place a dollar bill In tha pocket and t has to be removed with forceps aid n anaesthetic. But put a nickel in he pocket, and within ten minutes It aos leaped nimbly Into the till of the Barest cigar store, soda fountain or aoving picture emporium, If the nickel's work were to be tnrn- d over to the dimo, moat ot our raov- ng picture theaters would close, the Igar business would disappear, street ars would travel empty and our moat prominent brewers would be mowing lawns tat it living. Many of our new- est and freshest millionaires, are men who found and quarters doing work which was unfitted for them, and put nickels on'the Job In their places. And many of our future millionaires will be men wbo discover other jobs now being run Into the around by larger and fatter coins and who will "Tha day laborer of our ootnage." put In cisterns for tills and begin the accumulation of nickels aa a life work. The nickel haa not broken Into tha au- tomobile business and nvur newer do so. But when voter oentrlbates a, nickel to his party the ot tha campaign committee will disappear and the large contributors, who have renting our political parties in the past will be told coldly and firmly to go to. .n honest man and an honest official, .nd every such citizen will hope for a .Humph for Sulzer, WHY NOT? Last evening a crowded street car accidentally stopped on the near aide of a crossing. Immediately the fact was commented upon by a majority of the occupants of the car, the sug- ;estlon being made, emphatically, that all street cars ought to atop on the near crossings on the paved streets. The suggestion is not a new one to 2edar Rapids. The Gazette has made :t repeatedly, and hundreds of citizens have voiced their approval. Even the officers of the street car company have intimated that they believed stopping the cars on the near cross- ,ngs would be a good thing, Tho general opinion is that a change in the rule in vogue in Cedar Rapids would mean less danger of accidents. Other cities have found the change agreeable and much safer than the far-side stop. The local street car companies should voluntarily put the near-side stop rule into effect. If they fall to do so the city council should make it mandatory. FITCH. George Fitch, the Illinois journalist and humorist, who speaks tonight In the Interest of progressive politics. Is well known to Gazette readers through tho sketches which have appeared dally on this page for several months. There are few writers whose contributions are eo widely read as are those of Mr Fitch. He is a real humorist, be- cause with his humor there Is a fund of truth and homely philosophy which appeals to the common sense of the roador. Mr. Fitch has won a name o.nd a place for himself among Ameri- can authors Gazette hopes, by the way, that tne present visit of Fitch to Ce- dnr Hapids will have the effect of in- AUTO ACCIDENTS. It la not in the least an exaggeration to say that flfty auto accidents have occurred In southwest Iowa In the last en days. Practically every local pa- per on tha exchange list of the Non- larell recorded from one to three In heir own Immediate locality in this weefe'a Issue, Most of these occurrences were due to lack of precaution and fast driving. In one case It was a collision on the top of a hill where neither driver could see the other car until they were too close to prevent violent contact and considerable damage. In another case It was trying to turn a corner at a forty-mite clip. It couldn't be done. The inevitable happened. Car was wrecked, occupants seriously hurt. In several cases cara went Into ditches In others horses were frightened and did much damage. Clearly, there is need of gnore dras- tic regularities and more specific def- inition of rights and wrongs In these matters. There Is altogether too much reckless driving. Cara are rap- Idly increasing in number and the number of dead and wounded will like- wise Increase If no way Is fouad to curb and restrict those who will not wisely govern themselves in driving cars and observing the rules of tha road as well as rules of common sense. The man who attempts to turn a cor- ner at a forty-mile pace ought to be debarred from running a machine for ten years. The situation demands drastic treat- Bluffs Nonpareil. Company 213-14 Masonic Temple by the Barnes republicans, against Governor Sulzer. The latter was elected governor less than a year ago. Tha moment he assumed office he set out to be governor In his own right. He refused to he dictated to by Boss Murphy of Tammany Hall. Of course. Murphy didn't like to have his political authority questioned so set out to put the governor out of commission. The battle is waging furiously. The gov- ernor has put up a game flg-ht, and the Murphy crowd is fighting Just as gamely. The governor charges the Murphyites with looting the state treasury with a system of politics so rotton that it makes the Tweed ffang tills city, "sketches. DR. SUTKERS DENTIST Open Evenings By Appointment Over Boy son tweeri the Tammany crowd, supported duclrtB him to entertainingly of featuring it in one of his Some tlmo ago the editor of Tlie Gazotte wrote to Mr. Fttch suggesting that a former lowan who la writing about prominent cities shouldn't overlook Cedar Rapids; that despite the fact that he (Fitch) 13 a member of the Illinois legislature, the people of Cedar Rapids seemed to like and that they would welcome an .together truthful write-up of the greatest its aide of the New Jerusalem. Mr. Fitch replied In the following characteristic letter: "Dear Brother Young: It has taken me these last two werks to figure out a good excuse for not having written about that great, famous and alto- gether meritorious city of Cedar Rap- ids. I onco lived In lorra, myself, which should prove to you, knowing the stick-together habits of lowans, that some day Cedar Rapids will get all thai is coming to her, as far as 1 am concerned. "The real reason why I have not thus far written about your beautiful little for heaven's Bake I beg your tumurtous metropolis, is because I am not yet convinced In my own mind whether such delicate attentions on my part constitute a boost or an attack. 1 have received many letters from Indignant mayors and commercial cluba, Inviting me kindly to get off the earth because of what I considered to be exceedingly gracious ana beneficial remarks ahout their towns. This has made me a lit- tle worrlefl about writing up the towns for which I have real affection. I of other days angels. But look that like white-robed doesn't disturb Murphy. The Tammany chief gives his orders to his henchmen in the legislature and the henchmen do his bidding. And BOBS Barnes controls enough republicans so that tho gov- ernor can g-et nothing through the legislature; none, of his appointments are confirmed. The battle is costing the taxpasere-a pretty penny. But it IB costing them a great deal less than If the governor followed the bidding of Murphy and.Barnes. No money Is ever wasted that is used fighting pallt- ical bossism and those are tne things which Murphy .and Barnes represent.

According to the fashion announce- ments, waistcoats for women are com- ing in with the fall styles.. They are not to be women's waistcoats, that is, waistcoats cut and made along femi- nine lines. They are to be real waist- coats; men's waistcoats. And they are to be worn like men's waistcoats. Un- der the waistcoat will be a waist; above it will be a wide lace or em- broidered collar. The waistcoat will be cut low, almost as low as a man's dress waistcoat, and over It, but well open In front, will be worn a sack coat. If the waistcoat Is white and the coat is dark, the costume will be very neat and attractive. A gold watch chain, of he old style, will be festooned from upper to upper pocket, and caught up n one of the buttonholes. Among men It Is not at al! likely that here will be the sllghest objection to his Innovation. Quite the contrary. Men have always been partial to waistcoats, and mias them greatly In he summer time when they wear soft shirts and belts. For days after a man dispenses with his vest he does not know where to put things. The regulation vest has four pockets, and o deprive a man of four pockets at one bound Is Ifke cutting him out of, ila clothes closet and bureau drawers n order to make a house party com- lortable. A man carries his pencils, his foun- tain pen, his card Index, his mileage, its memoranda, his pocket comb, base- ball tickets, reserved seat checks, a calendar, a time table, addresses of Yiends his golf club locker key, some- his watch, and almost invariably his small change, in his waistcoat pockets. In addition to all these, he carries, if a married man, all the small his wife cannot get Into her purse or bag. and a very large part of his time is spent in looking in one waistcoat pocket for things he Is carrying for her In one of the other three waistcoat pockets. Now, if women In general rtiall wear waistcoats from and after next fall they will find the four pock- ets just as convenient as men have found them. Sometimes men, of courss, go to extremes In using their Waist- coat pockets as depositories for mis- cellaneous portables, and women often rebuke them for doing so. Whether women will be more careful in this re- spect and stop short of over-crowding the pockets remains to be seen. An- other thing that remains to be seen Is how long It -will take them to remem- ber to transfer the contents of the pockets from one traltscoat to another when they make a Science Monitor.
