TOR VICE PRESIDENT,
JAMES 8. SHERMAN,
HON. HARRY UAILEY.
Tho firat declnrntion in tho Democratic plat
form is an assault ou a Protective Tariff. The
Republican platform is outspoken for 6uch a
Tariff. Hero is one issue squarely joined,
and history proves tho streugth of tho Repub
Speaking of Wilson and the Tariff, if mem
ory serves us right, we had a three years'
experience with another Wilson measure from
1893 to 189G.
Under tho Wilson bill of Cleveland's admin
istration there was no Tariff on wool and 50
per cent, on goods, and the most flourishing
industry was tho souphouses.
THE BLIGHT OF DEMOCRACY.
. The sheriff was tho busiest man in Highland
county. The facts from his records are appal
' .ling. From 1893 to 1897 he sold two hun
dred and twenty-four farms and homes, served
five hundred and thirty-one executions; and
, closed the following laigo industries: Tho Ohio
Chair Co.; The Hillsboro 4 Manufacturing Co.;
The Hillsboro Gas Co.; The Hillsboro Woolen
Mills; The Citizeus National bank; and tho
First National Bauk. A bankrupt community
.is a bad market.
If you were asked to do something that
might possibly reduce the value of your laud
and your product from one-half to threo-fourths
.would you take that risk? -
With tariff for revenuo prices for your land
and youi product can you beat the sheriff to
What Highland countian will take a chance
on a return to such conditions?
A vote for William II. Taft insures a con
tinuation of present conditions. Tho above
editorial appeared in tho Hillsboro Ohio, Dis
patch, Friday, October, 1912. "
THE ISSUE AND THE HANDWRITING.
Issues' are not determined by men, but by
events. When a real issuo impends tho
most adroit of campaign managers can no
' more create an issue than ho can evade one. It
is not a matter of political general selecting
tho issues upon which a campaign shall bo
fought; campaigns have a habit of developing
issues that ovorshadow the original ouo and
convert it into a mere perliminary skirmish.
For months the political outposts have been
skirmishing; thoro has been a rattling number
of outpost flghls, but tho real battle field was
not-determined until within tho past fortnight,
, for tho real issuo had not developed.
But today tho real battlo field is revealed,
tho real issue his come to tho fron' ; tho pre,

whero it is apparent that tho split in tho Re

that that means -industrial depression, panic,
loss of employment and hard times. Tho Re

policies which have made tho nation prosper

Colonel Roosevelt's ouargo has been bril
liant, it has been sensational, it has been char
acteristic, but it is now apparent that it can
have but one roault the defeat of the very
principles and policies. which he is seeking to
maintain. Backed by the vote of tho "Solid
South," faced by divided Republican forces in
great industrial and agricultural states, a man
needs neither to be a prophet nor the son of a
prophet to appreciate the fact that a free trade,
Democratic administration may be ushered in
It is a realization of this situation by the
people ot the'great Northern and Eastern states
which has made the real issue, which has de
termined the real battle ground upon which
the fight will be conducted during tho closing
weeks of the campaign.
Shall prosperity and piotection be kicked
out? Shall froo trade and hard times be voted
in? These then are the questions that tho
voter must answor when ho goes to tho polling
place in November. They may be entirely
different from those which many of us thought
would bo asked; they may be entirely different
from those which the campaign managers had
determined would be beat suited to their pur
pose, but they aro the ones determined by
events and therefore tho real ones.

No argument is necessary to show the manu

Great Help to

By F. E. O. CAKPENTIEU
;IE world it littered with failure caiised by eyes that could not
see opportunity at the door. The combination of the untrained
eye and the untrained mind ia a handicap thai; ties the world to
drudgery. It is the man whose eye eeet beneath the surface of
things who wins success.
Accurate observation is ono of the rarest arts in the -world. The un
disciplined eye jumps to conclusions that havo no reality in fact. The
mind is blinded and deceived by eyes that lie. It is a common occurrence
in court to have two honet witnesses differ diametrically upon easentiul
points of their testimony. Try to describe from memory your moat inti
mate friend so that a stranger could pick him out of a crowd and you
will discover how little you have been using your eyes. i
It ia the man or woman who sees things overlooked by others, things
to which others have been blind, who achieves success. It was because Watt
could see an enormous power of tremendous potentiality in the uteam which
lifted tho lid of tho bubbling tea kettle that wo have the steam engine of
today, and yet steam had been making noisy tea kettles for thousands of
years for unseeing eyes. And it is the same in all the great discoveries
that have changed this world from savagery to civilization. It is the art of
seeing with truincd eyes.
The boy or girl who sets out deliberately to train eye and the regis
tering mind to accurato observation lias taken the first great step in ml
self-education. They are giving themsclvea the beat equipment for the
battle of lifo and preparing themselves to welcome opportunity.
It was a young man who had trained himself to see under the surface
of things who made a fortune out of discarded tin cans in a western min
ing camp. Tho cans littered the streets and alleys where they had been
thrown by the hungry, careless miners. They wore kicked about and trod
den upon by hundreds of money-mad men daily, but he one day noticed
that one of the waste cans, partly submerged in the water that was pumped
from the mines, collected & thin coat of copper. He saw that thousands of
dollars', worth of copper in solution was going to waste iu the water that
poured from the mines. He saw that the tin cans caught this fleeing cop
per and precipitated it. In a few years lw was one of the nation's mining
Train the eye to see things as they are, to see things which the most
of us are overlooking as commonplace. Naturo is still holding back many
secrets the discovery of which may be as profound in- result upon civiliza
tion aa the advent of steam or electricity, and they are secrets that will
be yielded only to the trained eye and disciplined brain.

Two things are requisite for the
healthy and happy growth and develop
ment of the children a playground and
a garden. Children need & place like an
empty barn in which they can swing and
amuse themselves in wet and wintry aa
well as in hot sultry weather, indulging
those gamee which are requisite for the
schooling alike of their muscles and
Fashion has exerted a baleful influence
over the best feelings of tho mother, for
she has become willing to sacrifice tho
health and well-being of her children by
unsightly exposure of the arms and legs, which is often attended by the
moat serious, injury to the child. Merino undershirts should be worn
by the girls in winter ather, woolen stockings and heavy shoea.
Avoid guarding the neck and throat of boys and girls. By reason
of the proximity of the neck to the seat of circulation this very quickly
has the temperature unduly increased by an excess of covering, to relieve
which the articles surrounding tho neck are often suddenly removed.
Perspiration is then cheeked and throat diseases of course follow.
As the child advances in ago his desire for employment and amuse
ment will increase. Every proper opportunity, therefore, should be .given
for the due exercise of both body and mind, but neither should be too
fatigued. Care should be taken at this time to provide, such employment
or amusement aa shall exercise the arms as well as -the legs, "playing ball,
pitching horseehoet and tho like. After selecting proper games and cxer-
.cises for children constant care should be taken that none are indulged
in to excess. '
Every violent exertion it attended by a strain upon' tome one part
or other of the body.
In jumping from great heights, leaping over elevations, lifting great
weights, in fact, in every exertion of this kind the boy risks producing a
disability for lifo. It is by theso hazardous experiments, that ruptures
are so frequently produced. On this account the exerciaat of a well
regulated gymnasium become so valuable, aa the performance are grad
uated, beginning with the meet easy and progressively arriving at the

In our mad scramble after tho almighty
dollar we forget that there ia something of
far mora value than gold, something which
some of our wealthiest and most influential
men do not poeeees, something that the
poorest man has a chance to have and some
thing which very few men can rightly lay
claim to. "What is that f you may ask.
No need to hesitate before replying. It it
a spotless reputation.
A person with good brains can amass a
fortune, a hypocrite con deceive persons
into believing him a taint and a person with
any sort of crit can gain tucces in a way, but it must be a person of tre
mendous will power who can withstand temptations and elude the many ,
pitfalls that lure the unsuspecting down tne patn 01 aestrucuon.
It is hard to keep in the straight road and lead a straight life In the
f face of temptations, but no battlo can be won without fighting.

with drinking saloons.
