The Independent Voter.
The independent voter grows
year by year more and more
numerous. Party candidates are
far less sure of polling the party
strength today than they were
ten years, twenty years ago.
This is one of the encouraging
signs in politics. The worth of
the man is coming to mean more
to the voter than does the party
and the best party man of today
is pret ty sure to pru ne his party
ticket in accordance with his best
judgment. Nowhere has this
tendency been more noticeable
than in Minnesota since the adop-
tion of the primary election law.
The primary election law gives
the voter an opportunity to ex-
press his individual preferences
for nomination as well as for elec-
tion of candidates and the pro-
fessional politician does not now
find.it so easy to dictate to the
people who shall be their candi-
dates and for whom they shall
The man who has been tried
and not found wanting, the offi-
cial whoso record of service is
clear can go before the people
confident of the votes of his in-
telligent constituency. Against
such a candidate the man who
simply wants office finds it today
harder than ever before to make
Up to the beginning of the
gubernational campaign, ended
last week, no man in Minnesota
ever heard aught against the
ability or integrity of Robert C.
Dunn although Mr. Dunn has
been in public life for years.
Several republican newspapers
who were most violent and viru-
lent in their attacks "upon Mr.
Dunn's candidacy for governor
are now sulking in their tents
thus showing that their opposi-
tion was purely personal and not
founded upon public reasons.
The party would be better off
without such supporters.
THE roster of the Business
Men's Club of Bemidji shows less

too many business men who are
not members of the club. No

active member loses an oppor-

One of the foregone conclusions
of the coming campaign is the
nomination of Judge Spoonor to
succeed himself on the district

record on the bench is the best
argument that need be advanced
in his behalf. Besides the judge
adds to his ability a personality,
that wins for him warm and last

say that, he does not have an
enemy in his home town. This

from an impartial standpoint say
that ho enters the race with the
solid Scandinavian vote of the

realize that it is sometimes very embarassing for a lady to tell
a physician about her troubles. For that reason keep in attendance
a lady ac my office from 1 to 5:30 p. m. She assists (if desired) all
ladies in get*,ing ready for examinations is present (if desired) while
I am giving adjustments. The cause of all female diseases is in the
spinal column (small of the back) and find it is unnecessary to adjust
other than tlie cause for the removal of the cause always allows the
diseased organs to resume their natural positions and functions. Hence
I never require local examination and never give local treatment, and
even so, there is no line of diseases with which I have more complete
success than those which ailHot womankind.
