The Political Outlook.
There is always, the year be
fore the presidential election, a
desire to know who shall be the
candidates of the two national
parties. There is just now. Who
shall head each ticket? As things
appear at the present juncture,
the Democratic party will nomi
nate Bryan for the third time,
He is willing to try it again if
the party will see fit to put him
at the head of the ticket. He
thinks it an honor that no Amer
lean can afford to decline. We
think the party will nominate
him. And for this reason, he is
by far the most available man in
the party, and most widely pop
ular. If the Democrats can elect
any man in 1908 they can elect
their old candidate, W. J. Bryan.
To be sure, his pronounced
views anent government owner
ship of the trunk railroads have
cooled the ardor of many of his
old friends, and made for him
some new admirers; but still, the
Democratic party has no other
man to take his place with equal
chance of election. There are
many well known Democrats
who, if elected, would make ex
cellent chief magistrates, but
Bryan is head and shoulders a
bove them all in public esteem,
- and of necessity will have to be
nominated. His election is quite
another matter. His calling is
quite sure, his election is not so
The Republicans, as things look
now, -will put in nomination Wm.
Howard Taf t. A great effort has
been made to induce President
Roosevelt to run again, but he
firmly, and as we think, wisely
declines. He has been a strong,
brave, strenuous chief magis
trate. Will go down to history
as one of great celebrity. The
civilized world everywhere holds
him in admiration, and future
generations will joyfully revere
his name. He has had his time
and opportunity, and is willing to
step down and out desiring to
see elected a worthy successor.
Who is more worthy than Judge
Taft? We can think of no one.
He is a clean, patriotic, and able
statesman, a man who has ad
orned every station he has been
called to occupy. As judge, gov
ernor of distant and troubled isl-
v ands in the Pacific, as Secretary
of War, as pacifier of Cuba ; in
brief, in all his occupations, he
has been a conspicuous success.
His character is not only above
. pf proach, but is replete in all
ifanly virtues, a citizen of a clean
fe and brilliant achievements in
fh e national administration.
fhere can the Republicans find
There will be opposition to him
' in parts of his own state, but the
very enemies he has made in the
discharge of complicated duties
reflects credit to him. Our two
Ohio senators are bitterly hostile
to Judge Taft, simply because he
overtops and overshadows them.
How could Senator Foraker en
dure it to see Ohio having a fav
orite son other than himself L Of
course, he will try his best Code-
feat the Judge.
But we must bear in mind that
Hon. J. B. Foraker has outlived
his usefulness in the Republican
party. He has become an ob
struction to progress, and withal
a bitter opponent of the Republi
can president, His prestige has
waned, and it seems probable
that at the expiration of his pre
, pent senatorial term, he will go
into retirement. The future is
for men of the Taft type of states
men. Senator Foraker is a fight
er, and will keep at it ; but he
fights on the wrong side. In his
present effort to put Roosevelt
"in a hole" he will come out sec
ond best, for the American peo
ple have faith in their chief mag
istrate; but very little in Ohio's
We are glad that Taft has con
cluded to accept the Republican
nomination if tendered to him.
That clears the political atmos
phere. A thousand pities if a
few political enemies shall be
able to prevent the nomination of
the upright, able, fearless Judge

New Discovery, King of Throat
and Lung Remedies!" of which
Mrs. Julia Ryder Paine, Truro,
Mass., says: "It never fails to
give immediate relief and to
quickly cure a cough or cold."
Mrs. Paine's opinion is shared
by a majority of the inhabitants
of this country. New Discovery
cures weak lungs and sore throats
after all other remedies have
failed ; and for coughs and colds
it's the only sure cure. Guar

Tomorrow we will write 1907,
and lucky will we be if we. al
ways proclaim the correct figures.
Another year is numbered with
the past, and it is deemed a sea
son in which we usually take a
retrospect of what has been ac
complished during the year. It
will be well if all can find their
year devoid of failure, and if not
full as containing some good deeds
done, useful to self or some oth
er one. It would doubtless make
a strange looking account if per
mitted to look through the inven
tory of each individual person.
It is probably well that such in
sight is denied us. It will be
sufficient for each to take a view
of his own life, and ascertain
whether it. has been what it
should or might have been. In
addition to taking a review of
the past it is also the opportune
time to cast about to see whether
the year upon which we are a
bout to enter can not be improv
ed upon. It is said that New
Year's day is $he time to make
resolutions of reform, which is
all very well to determine upon,
jut to execute these resolves is
iar more important than to make
them. But let them be made,
and if failure to perform should
result, it will doubtless not be
the first failure that has marked
the life of many a person. Let
every person resolve upon a bet
ter life for the year to come, u
then use his best endeavor to
make it a reality. Let every one
improve upon his past life.
On Christmas Eve our M. E.
Sunday school gave an exe'lent
entertainment and received the
usual treat, and at same time the
occasion was improved to bestow
gifts, and a few, of course, were
exchanged. H. M. Dershem's
class presented him with a chair.
Of course, the class realized that
their teacher is growing in years
and needs seasons of repose, and
doubtless, could conceive nothing
more suitable than a chair in
which to recline and enjoy ex
emption from the vexations of
daily toil. Mr. Dershem, of
course, appreciated both the gift
and the motive inspiring it.
On yesterday our M. E. Sun
day school elected officers for the
coming year, as follows: P. B.

will surely make a mark of effi

The assessment of the George
ditch was heard before the Coun

any one. After discuss
ing the matter in various ways,
the assessment as made was con
firmed, except to give Mr. George
relief from a couple of small
tracts not in the basin of the
ditch. The estimated cost of con
structing the ditch, with two la
terals and tiling same through
out, is $1432. 81. Of this amount
our village is assessed $352.

FRESH AIR IN HOUSES.

Fresh air is essential to life and
health, it la one of the beat thinga
that we have, but even oar best poa
aessions mar be abused and It la
lometlniea possible to have too much
of a good thing.- While roosting out of
doors In the trees maj be productive
of no harm during summer weather
and early autumn, we firmly believe
that much harm may result by per
mitting them to continue to occupy
these airy perches after the severe,
changeable late fall and wiuter weath
er sets In. Birds kept under such con
ditions could not be expected to give
satisfactory returns In either eggs or
fertility. Witli au open front hou84
they have. all the advantages of the
pure air obtained by sleeping in the
open and none of the disadvantages.
They are well protected by the tight
roof overhead and the snug back and
sides of tlielr roosting quarters. The
cold, chilling wind cannot reach them,
and storms cannot Injure them.
Of the mauy types of fresh air poul

best example! of satisfactory buildings
for breeding and laying stork: The
Maine experiment station curtain front

ing a two part door In the frout of
each pen, the upper half of which may
be made to give place to a burlap or
muslin screen. Nearly all closed poul
try houses may be adapted to the fresh
air plan by simply substituting a screen
of heavy unbleached muslin for the
upper half of one wiudow In the

Is perfectly cold. This Is generally
the final rinse, but all the sonp must
be got out or the feathers will curl.
The drying room must be kept close
to 90 degrees F. The birds are gen
erally allowed to dry overnight. They
are then gradually accustomed to the
normal temperature. Some of the best
washers give repeated washings.
Ammonia Is often used In small quan
tities In the washing water.
Mark the Turkey.
One should mark their turkeys for
future identification. The leg band
bearing your initials or number can be
readily placed on the shanks of young
turkeys about the time they begin to
wander far from borne, says Feather.
Some mark their turkeys by clipping
the toe nails or one or more toes or dif
ferent toes. Many different brands of
markings can be made use of by this
means. The toe punch may be used
and identification marks stamped
trough the toes. Some use n rubber
stamp and indelible ink to braud the
wing feathers. This cannot be de

How to Kill Fowls.
The best method of killing a fowl la
by seizlug it by the feet with the left
band and by the head with the right
and then stretching Its neck with a
jerk to the utmost extent and at the
same time bending Its head back
ward, so as to dislocate Its neck and
sever the spinal cord. A fowl may
be killed by holding It In the left
hand with Its head hanging down
ward and then striking it a hard blow
on the back of the head with a heavy
stick, like a ruler, or It may be killed
quickly by chopping off Its head. It
may also be killed quickly by twisting
the neck until It Is dislocated and the
spinal cord severed. , . . .
