The Popular Vote.-
The common belief that the presiden
I tial vote in 1312 was less than the presi
dential vole in 1908 is incorrect. Ac
cording to the ollioial figures compiled
for the World almanac the total vote
this year was 15.033,600, as against
14,883,412 four years ago, an increase
But only the socialists profited from
this larger vote. They alone made
gains, and very significant gains. Debs
vote in 1908 was 420,793; id 1912 it was
900,672, an increase of more than 100
As fu the Democrats, Wilson polled
a total of 6,293,454, as against Bryan's
total of, 6, 499, 101 in 1908, a decrease of
115,650. Straner still, the total vote
cast for Taft and Roosevelt was less
than the total Republican vote in 1903.
Taft's 1912 vo'e was 3,434,930 and
Roosevelt's was 4,119.533. Together
they polled 7,504,518, which falls 71,390
under Taft's total of 7,678,903 four
Even the Prohibitionists suffered from
apathy. Their vote in November was
only 200,275 compared with 253,800.
This loss of 47,505 is nearly one-fifth of
It is a curious fact that with the ex
ception of New Hampshire all the New
England states cast more votes in 1912
than in 1903. The middle states of
New York, New Jersey and Pennsyl
vania cast fewer votes in 1912 than in
1903. Ohio, Indiana Illinois, Wiscon
sin, Nebraska and Iowa also took less
interest in the 1912 campaign than in
the 1903 campaign. The same is true
of the border slates, Kentucky, Tennes
see and Missouri.
There's no uniform rule applying to
the south. Alabama, for example, cast
more votes tban in 1903 and Georgia
cast fewer votes. Texas showed a large
increase, while South Carolina a large
decrease, while Virginia's slump was
exactly 70 voles and Oklahoma's vas
The mountain sta'es showed an in
crease. Colorado, (J tali. Wyoming.
Montana and Idaho cast more votes
than they did in 1908. By reason of
woman's suffrage, California's vote
should have doubled, but her 1912 vote
was only 673,527, as against 336,597 in
1903. Apparently nearly 100,000 quali
fied citizens of California remained
away from the polls.
The most significaLt fact in all these
returns is the increase and distribution
of tbe socialist vote. It is not a sec

bile in Idaho more than 10 per cent, of
the total vote was socialist. This is
something for Democrats and Republi
cans alike to think about serionsly.

Best Cough Medicine For
"I am very glad to say a few words in
praise of Chamberlain's Cough Remeny"
writes Mrs. Lida Dewey, Milwaukee,
Wis. "I have used it for years both for
my children and myself and it never
fails to relieve and cure a cough or cold.
No family with children should be with
out it as it gives almost immediate re
lief in cases of croup." Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy is pleasant and safe to

proper advertising," he said. "The
country between Mt. Sterling and Louis
ville is tbe finest dairy land in the
United Slates on account of the pasture
and the climate. Tbe pasture gives the
butter a natural flavor and oolorthat can
not be equaled anywhere else. The cli

The best thing you can do for your hair is tokeep it free from Jan-
druff. It is now positively known that most eases of baldness can I
be traced directly to the formation of JandruJ and to nesrVct of f
tho scalp. The powerful, yet harmless, antiseptic properties of J
make it supreme in this respect. Its effect can be noticed af:er
' the first two or thre applications, and. if care is taken to avoid
re-infection of the scalp by unclean comb or brush, the occiunal
use of this tonic will keep the scalp in the prime of hf.il hy con
