THE DIRECT PRIMAZRY A FAILURE.
The Boston Herald fays there is u growing belief
hi Maine that the direct-primary system in that
state is a delusion ami a snare. Jt appears that
the- voters are not tiking an interest m the pri
maries, which would justify the belief that the new
system is a cure for All the evils of the old. Under
the new system the ivote cast has been far short ol
a majority of the vites registered. Under it, also,
candidates nominatd are forced to go through two
campaigns, a fact which too frequently tends to
eliminate capable Jiien who have neither the time
nor money to follcyw the game. Moreover, the ex
pense of mi electjlon to state and cities has boon
nearly doubled. J Moreover, the primaries have
proved to be no J'heek on dishonest manipulation,
and the work can be done just as secretly, while
tho temptation tfa spend money to win is fully as
great under the new system. Indeed, they prac
tically compel taiulidati'.s to greater expenditures!
if they have nity competition in their own party
as well as opponents outside.
THE DESIRABLE IMMIGRANT.
AVliat wo nci'il is what we have advocated for the
last four years!,. That is a law for allowing manu
facturers to eugage skilled foreign help where the
American supply is not equal to the demand. Tho
law should nJake it imperative that manufacturer
contract witli their foreign help and are responsibU
for its weli'a'o during the contract period. As it is
a real or imaginary arrangement to get skilled for
eign hands Maces the employer almost in the elasf
with the house-breakcr and the murderer.
Wo want, the desirable immigrant who comes
here to staY and become a part of things. He sooi
becomes al good consumer as well as a producer
The bars should be raised against the raiding class
-and the rjdministration that has turned American
industry jivcr to foreign competitors should do nc
less thau'give fair protection to the decent laboi

THE FALLACY OF FOOL FIGURES.
A co-respondent of the New York Tribune thus
answer a fool according to his folly: "I heard re-
cently Ja Socialist proclaim from the platform that
.labor gets one-iifth of what it produces and the
master (employer) gets four-fifths, giving as his
authority Carroll D. Wright. 1 would like to put
rthis case before some Socialist, taking as a basis a
Wtolry employing two hundred hands, at $2 a day.
Iibolr would get $400 for that day's labor and
mployer would have $1,600, out of which cost,
fbution, depreciation, etc., would amount to
r cent., leaving a net profit of $(5-10 a day,
hree hundred days in the year an minimi
jai $192,000. Then why so many failures
all you must do is to employ a few hands and
)ine in six years a millionaire? Or are the
fistics wrong, which show about !)0 per cent, ot
(ic engaging in business fail?"

Some of Miss Alice Lloyd's friends in Mason
county, having spoken of her lis a possible candi
date for County School Superiijtendent, Miss Lloyd
writes a card disclaiming "aiiy desire or willing
ncss to fill a public office," anil expressing .tho be
lief that she has neither the fitness nor physical
strongth to discharge the dudes of school superin
tendent. Doubtless thero will be many who will
take issue with this latter silatemeiit. We doubt
not that Miss Lloyd sjvould iliakc a good superin

Muriel sat In tho twilight, with n
small box in her hand, unmindful ot
tbo shadows which woro beginning to
stent Into tho room. If one could havo
pooped lnsldo tho box ono would havo
seen a cameo ring of a peculiar stylo.
Sho was thinking of the ono who had
given It to her eleven years ago.
Just then a light tap at hor door
nrouscd hor from her reverie, and sho
sprang to hor fet. Tho box fell from
her hand and rolled under tho table.
"Oh, It's you, Miss Fullor!" sho ex
claimed, opening tho door.
"Yes, it's I," laughed a yourtg voice,
and a girl of nbout 20 camo Into tho
room. "And why nro you sitting In
"I didn't realize It was so late," ex
plained Muriel, ns sho turned on tho
light. Sho stooped to pick up tho
box, but It had opened and the ring
had fallen out.
"That's a peculiar ring," uho said,
"and a beautiful one."
Muriel's faco crimsoned. "Yes, It
has a strnngo Betting," she replied.
"I'vo bad It a long time. A very dear
friend gave It to me."
"Would you mind telling mo about
It?" said tho girl, softly, and sho
slipped her arms about tho other's
Lois Fuller was a nleco of Muriel's
landladyand during tho last year had
frequently visited hor nunt. Muriel
had seen quite n lot, of tho girl, for
nearly every evening during her stay
Bhe- had come up to Muriel's room.
Lois wns, expectant, and at last tho
other broko the sllenco. "I'vo never
told any ono before," she said, "but
perhaps it may do mo good to confide
In you. I was very young when I
first met Philip Browning."
Hero Lois gavo a llttlo start, but
Murlol did not notice It. "Ho was an
artist and camo to our village tho
summer I was 17. Ho wns n constant
visitor at our home during his stay In
town, nnd ns bo wns far superior to
any young mnn I had over seen, It was
not long before 1 grew to admire him.
"neforo lie returned to tho city In
tho nutumn ho told mo that ho loved
me. Thero wns io happier girl In
tbo world than I when ho put this
ring on my linger. Ho said that it
was an helr'oom and showed mo an
other ring which was exactly llko it,
only n little smaller.
"This ho wore on his watch chain.
His parents had died when he was a
child, and "tho rlng3 had been left for
him. This one was his mother's be
trothal ring, and bis father used to
wear tho other ring, as ho himself was
doing, on his watch chain.
"The days after this were very
bright until Philip was obliged to re
turn home. At first I was lonely, but
I tried to comfort myself with the
thought that we would not bo sep
arated very long, for tho following
Juno wo were to bo married. I grew
quite happy ngaln as I made my
plans for our new home, but In a few
weeks my happiness turned Into sor
row. My father wns suddenly taken
111 with pneumonia nnd In less than a
fortnight I wns left alone. This wns
n severe blow to me, for 1 loved my
father very dearly. Now I only had
"Up to that time ho had written mo
long, loving letters, nnd It was a cruel
shock to mo tho month following my
father's death to pick up a paper and
read of his marriage."
When Muriel had finished, Lois was
looking very thoughtful. "Are you
sure that thero wasn't some mis
take?" she said.
"Oh, no," answered Muriel, "there
wasn't any mistake. I only hope he
Is happy without doubt he Is,
nnd ho probably never gives n thought
to tho girl he used to know so long
Lois murmured a few words of sym
pathy and then, nfter a llttlo while,
she left Muriel alono.
Ono evening, about two weeks after
ward, a feeling which Muriel could not
define composed her to ngaln look nt
tho cameo ring. After n llttlo while
sho slipped It on hor finger. At this
Juncture Lois camo up to her room,
her eyes sparkljng and her cheeks
Hushed with excitement.
"Auntlo has gone out," sho said,
"and I have a caller downstairs a
cousin of mlno. I want you to meet
him. You'll como down, won't yon?"
As they entered tho living roqm,
mado bright and cozy by a glowing
open fire, Muriel started as a tall,
familiar flguro stepped toward them.
Philip Browning! Could It be pos
sible? Yes, It was ho nnd no other

It took her only a few minutes to

after all. It was Philip's brother who
had married, nnd It was through an
