The indications now are that poli

* next summer, and if there is any seri

campaign meetings will be lively.
Wonder how much of the criticism
of the State Board of Education in
dulged in by some newspapers woe in
spired .by the thought that Gov.
Blease had much to do with the
adoption of certain books.

Somebody wants to now what
should be done with legislatures that
go back on their constituents. In
many cases that will probably be
answered by constituents going back
on the recreant legislators.
The effort made by some newspa

Another of the leaders of the old
South has passed away. At his home
in Atlanta, Ga., recently General Cle
ment A. Evans, formerly commander
in-chief of the United Confederate
Veterans, succumbed in his last great
fight, which was against death. His
?passing cannjot but serve to call to
mind again that the heroes of the
sixties are fast leaving us.
The "Glorious Fourth" seems to
have been observed more sanely than
usual, which shows ihat the move
ment for a "sane Fourth" is making
headway. Certainly it was time that
people learned that it was not^ nec

gers and arms, and thereby have a
long annual roll of dead and wound
ed in order to show their patriotism.
In spite of political corruption,
business dishonesty and other evils
too prevalent, the world is getting
better and the way to make it still
better is to follow the good and take

the heart of the nation beats strong
and sound and is seen in the innum
erable happy homes in which this
Those cults which under specious
guises indulge in shady moral prac

of "spirit of truth," or "other world

hyprocritical expressions. But In the
long Tun these cults, whether "Abso
lute Life," "Heavenly Abode," or
what not, are sure to come to grief
as they run against unimaginative
courts and the hard-headed, practical
sense of society. Yet it is strange
how easy it is for unprincipled men
to find willing dupes.
Stands For Gou Roaus.
Senator Swanson, of Virginia, re
cently made an ? r-gument on the
floor of the Senate in favor of good
roads and the duty of the federal
government to operate with the
States in building them. The Atlanta
Constitution says he disposes of every
argument, economic, legal and politi
cal, against the geueral government
making liberal provision for extend
ing the mileage oi improved high
ways. He calls attention to the fact
that under its coratltutional power
to establish poJtoffi-'es and postroads,
the government yes.ni ago built tm.
old Cumberland turnpike, and un
doubtedly would i have continued
making liberal appropriations for im
proved highways, but for the amaz
ing development of railroad construc
This factor which! temporarily
halted the work o? constructing im
proved highways, ifl now eliminated.
There is more reason than ever for
good roads to bring the open coun
try in touch with railroad lines. The
railroads themselves appreciate the
fact that better roads means more
produce to haul to market, and more
business in the shape of freight and
passengers. They are co-operating
with the farmers Is behalf of improv
ed means of communication, between
farm and city; between farm and rail
road station. The . '.present demo
cratic house of representatives is
pledged by the last democratic, nat
ioal platform to ooperate with the
various states in building roads. The
platform pledge .being: "We favor
federal aid to state and local authori
ties in the construction of post
ro?2u8." It should redeem that pledge
during the life of this congress.
Arguments of the vigor and di
rectness of the one made by Senator
Swanson, of Virginia, and a few days
ago ,by Senator Simmons, of North
Carolina, should serve to awaken the
congress to the popular demand for
government co-operation, and lead to
practical steps being taken to this
end. Senator Swanson charges that
we have the pooreat public highways
of any civilized nation, and that the
improvement of tbe highways Is the
problem of overwhelming impor
tance before the nation today. He
says that of the 2,155,000 miles of
public roads less than 200,000 are
macadamized. Tne figures he igives
as to the cost of handling farm,
products over bad roads, as compared
to the lower co*-4 of transportation
over good roads, are worthy of close
attention. More important than this
saving to the individual farmer, is
the tremendous enhancement of the
abutting property, and that in all tht
section served, which always follows
the improvement ' f a highway.
The federal government has estab
lished as post roads s?me 1,000,000
miles of highway over which the ru
ral mail is transported. It demands
that these roads be kept In passable
condition by the local community,
but makes no provision for aiding In
that work. If tthere is a single igood
and sufficient reason why Uncle Sam
should not co-operate, we have not
seen it advanced says the Constitu
tion. No scheme of internal improve
ments promises better and more sat
isfying results to the people and to
the government. It is only a ques
tion of time when a good roads ap
propriation bill will be introduced in
congress as regularly as a rivers and
harbor bill. Tho country Is worked
up over the quesi ion as never before.

thanks to an Illinois clergyman, made
easy for every man who aspires to
raise every kind of vegetable from
radishes to Hubbard squash. So
simple and yet. so ingenious Is the
plan discovered that one wonders it
was not thought of long since.
It merely amounts to a trap cun
ningly placed by a row of recently
sown peas or some other attractive
spot. Into this trap walks the ma
rauding hen as innocently as the fly
goes into the spider's parlor. When
the hen is thus caught the captor I
holds it for a ransom. No ransom,
no giving up of hen. but the ransom
is always paid, denredations cease,'
and harmony ifl restored between two
neighbors and their families.
New Potato Bug.
With a flourish of scientific trum
pets it is announced that a Chicago
professor of biology has. after innum
erable experiments, produced potato
bugs different in appearance from
the ordinary kind. Instead of the fa
miliar stripes, the new varieties have
barks that are mottled, piebald or
otherwise adorned with geometrical
figures, whil. the color scheme Is'
richer and more elaborate. It is all
very interesting, and perhaps valu
able from a scientific standpoint, but
potato growers would consider it
more to the point if that particular
student of biology or some other
evolve a harmless potato bug, or, bet
