Figures That Talk.
A bulletin from the University of
Minnesota shows that the total at
tendance this year so far is 279 less
than a year ago. The figures are as
follows for the different colleges:
College 1911 1912
Academic 1606 1447
Agriculture 318 400
Engineering 365 371
Law 305 196
Medicine 181 158
Dentistry 249 241
Pharmacy 67 67
Mines 98 93
Chemistry 83 94
Education 76 38
Graduate 32 16
The figures are quoted at this time
to show that while the total enroll
ment fell off in spite of the fact that
some colleges snow increases, the
College of Agriculture shows the
largest increase, it having twenty
five per cent more than in 1911.
The figures show conclusively that
more men and women are taking up
the scientific study of agriculture.
Students are admitted to this col
lege of the University only after hav
ing completed four years in a high
or preparatory school.
The Two Party Standard.
The question whether a third par
ty can be of any material service to
the country is just now acute, be
cause an attempt is being made to
form one. Putting aside the fact'
that the Progresive party is not as
yet consistently* a third party, but
is in some states merely a Republi
can protest, in others a merger of
dissatisfied Republican and Demo
crats, in still others a national par
ty, but without state existence, the
fact remains that the Propressive
party has a national platform and a
national candidate and is making a
national campaign, on the ground
that the two other national parties
have outlived their usefulness.
Is there room for a third party?
Could it even by success contribute
to the improvement of politics and
administration? Can the people be
permanently divided into three par
ties instead of two? National his
tory says no. Every attempt to form
a third party has had one of three
results. It has lost out entirely, or
it has been merged in one of the
older parties. The Populist party
lost out entirely. The Greenback
party was merged into the Democra
tic party. The Whig party was ab
sorbed by the Republican party. The
net result in each case was a return
to the two party system.
Rationally a self-governing people
can have but two alignments. There
must be a majority and a minority.
A third party involves .another and
an illogical alternative, a plurality.
This ideal cannot be said to have
any elements of permanency. It is
good for a protest, for a lesson, may
be, but it is not good for constitu
The two party idea has brought
us a long way. The only reason for
entertaining this idea is that party
organizations sometimes grow stiff
necked. The rank and file are as
malleable under the impact of ideas
as ever, but the leaders are not.
In such an exigency nearly ev
erybody recognizes the need of some
action. Shall it be the formation
of a new party, the reformation of
the old from within, or a desertion to
the opposition? The first method
has uniformly failed. The second is
sometimes tortuous and slow. The
third is always open. The people
can get action by moving. A few
years ago tbiis was more difficult.
Change from one party to another
involved, social, sometimes even bus
iness embarassments. But that has
passed. A man may move from one
party to the other without in the
least losing caste.
This points to the. true and effec-
tive way of reforming parties in the
country. If the one you are in is
hopelesly at fault, you need not stay
in it. You can declare" yourself in
dependent, vote the other into pow
er and thus get the government start
ed on another line. Nothing clari
fies a party's ideas like a season in
the wilderness. If it has virility, if
it has ideas necessary to the admin
istration it will come back repentant
of its former sins and purified of its
former errors. The third party
doesn't advance, but retards this pro
cess.The Minneapolis Journal.

JUMPS ON RUSTY
While working on a well digging
machine a Minnesota man jumped
upon a rusty sidewalk spike. The
nail drove part of his black woolen
sock far up into his foot. He remov
ed as much of the sock as he could,
put on Allen's Ulcerine Salve, and
kept right on with his work. The
salve drew out parts of the sock and
all other poisons and in a week his
foot was healed up.
This salve is one of'the oldest rem
edies in America and since 1869 it
has been known as the only salve
powerful enough to cure chronic
ulcers and old sores of long standing.
Allen's Ulcerine Salve acts by
drawing out the poisons and healing
the sore from the bottom up. It is
so powerful that it heals new cuts
and sores in one-third the time that
common salves and liniments take.
And it heals scalds and burns with
out a scar.Adv.
