What Will It Be?
On the eve of the general election,
few men can be found who will make
a definite prediction as to the out
come of the race for presidency. It
seems to be the general opinion,
however, that Woodrow Wilson will
poll the best vote in this county and
that he and Roosevelt will fight it
out for the state. Many believe that
there will be no election and that
the whole matter will go to the house
of representatives next January.
The Town -of Summit.
Farmers in the town of Summit are
as progressive as any in an other
town in the state of Minnesota. Re
cently they have graded their main
road, graveled nearly three miles ot
it and so worked it that any auto
mobile can make forty miles an hour
without jarring. They have a club
which meets once a month in the
town hall and which invites in
speakers to make addersses on sub
jects of interest to the farmers. They
have a town hall, with enough ad
jacent land for a cemetery and a
town warehouse. The farms are well
kept, the men have a telephone line,
their school is one of the best in the
county and they are raising good
crops. Altogether, the town of Sum
mit is some town.
The Pioneer believes that the fol
lowing men should be elected at the
general election tomorrow:

JUMPS ON BUSTY
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 bums with
out a scar.Adv.

the former is the case, as I feel cer
tain it is, others must know it. and
it is not necessary for me to blow
my own^horn. ^f^ -J
I have worked faithfully for two
years in the service of the people and
have accomplished much that was
needed in the matter of systematizing
the office, opening new records,
which should have been opened years
ago, bringing up the neglected back
work, and putting matters generally
in good shape for whomsoever might
succeed me in the office.
I was under a great handicap when
I took the office a year ago last Jan
uary. I know nothing regarding the
affairs of the office, and knowing
nothing, perhaps promised more than
I was able to fulfill. Had I been
lacking in nerve and business sys
tem, I would have feared to go go
beyond the limit of clerk hire allow
ed by law, and in so doing would
have placed a limit on the work to
Expecting, however, to pay out of
my own pocket for all extra clerk
hire, I at once put an extra force at
work, supposing all back work could
be cleaned up in a few months. For
tunately the legislature of 1911 pass
ed a law giving the commissioners of
certain counties of small valuation,
the right to increase the ordinary
clerk hire of auditors to an amount
which might be necessary to accomp
lish the work, subject to the approval
of the public examiner and the at
torney general. Owing to their abil
ity to judge of the work, these two
gentlemen at once agreed, and the
board of commissioner have been
quick to realize the value of the work
done, thus granting the increase
I have two deputies and two clerks,
all of experience and there is not a
lazy bone in any of them. They have
been willing to work nights, Sun
days and holidays and have needed
no driving at any time. I have never
expected them to work unless I was
working with them.
The current work has largely in
creased in the last two years. More
tax certificates were issued in 1911
than had been issued in all the pre
vious years since the organization
of the county, and more were issued
in 1912 than for all years before in
cluding 1911. Each one of these cer
tificates means more than ten times
the amount of work needed, if taxes
were paid up promptly, instead of be
ing allowed to go into judgment.
Regarding the policy of changing
auditors every two years, I can say
only this: I have been in the office
for nearly two years and I find that

there are some things yet to learn.
A new auditor would require as much
time to learn the routine and then
probably give way to another in two
years. No first class business house
would think of doing such a thing,
