A SIGNIFICANT DEMOCRATIC
The sweeping democratic victory in
Maine last week on Sept. 14 when Maine
elected a Democrat Governor, Legisla
ture and a Congressman, indicates pretty
clearly that the rising Democratic tide
will si eep the entire country in the Con
gressional elections in November. As
"Maine goes so goes the county" is a
old saying and a true one. Heretofore
when the Republican majority in this
rockribbed Republican state was cut
down to 10,000 it has always indicated a
Democratic victory in the ensuing elec
tion, so when the entire Republican lead
is wiped out, and a Democratic Victory
sweeps the state, there can be but little
doubt which ay the."wind is blowing.''
If it had not been for the fact that Maine
was gerymandercd by tit a Republicans,
the Democrats would have elected all
four, of the Congressmen, or at least
three out of four, as the Democrat Mc
Gillicudy was elected by 0000 plurality
and the three Republicans were elected
by small pluralities, ranging from C'.K) to
1S00. Two years ao, Maine elected a
Republican Governor and the one Dem
ocratic Congressman by 1200 and this
year it elects a Democrat Governor and
increases the plurality for the Dem
ocratic Congressman from 1200 to 6000
which shows a fine increase over two
years ago when the Democrats elected
291 Congressmen to the Republicans 144,
so it -vould seem that the Democrats
will again control the House of Repres
entatives by a overwhelming majority
and increase their majority in the Sen
ate from 10 to possibly 25 or 30.
THE WAR REVENUE.
Leaders Underwood, Senator Simmons
and Predident Wilson have come to an
agreement on the main points of the new
bill which is to add tlOO.000,000 to our
revenue, to make up for our loss of cus
tom receipts caused by the war. It
seems now that 60 cents a barrel will be
added to the tax on beer which will
yield f32,000,0O0 or about one-third of
the amount needed. Twelve cents a
gallon on dry and 20 cents on sweet do
mestic wines will add 18.000,000. A new
la i on tobacco will add about t4,000,00C
and 2 cents per gallon on gasoline will
bring in 120,000,000. The rest will be
made up by a tax of about 2 cents on
each bank check and draft and similar

ing the Spanish-American war of 1S93

"All that I am or hope to be," stid
Lincoln after he had become President,
"I owe to my aged mother "
"My mother was the making of me,"
said Thomas Edison recently. "She
was so true, so sure of me, and I fell
that I had someone to live for, someone
I must not disappoint."
"All that I have accomplished inlife,"
declared Dwighl L. Moody, the great
evangelist, "I owe to my mother."
"To the man who has a good molher,
all women are sacred for their sake,"
said Paul Jean Richie r.
The testimony of great men in ac
knowledgement of the boundless debt
ihey owe their mothers would make a
record stretching from the dawn of his
tory to today. Few men, indeed, be
come great who do not owe their great
ness to a mother's love and inspira
tion. How often we bear people in every
walk of life say: "I never could have
done this but for my molher. She be
lieved in me, encouraged me when oth
ers saw nothing in me."
"A kiss from my molher made me a
painter," said Benjamin West.
A distinguished man of today says;
"1 never could have reached my present
position had I not known that my molh
er expected me to reach it. From a
child she made me feel that this was
the position she expected me to fill, and
her faith spurred me on and gave mo
power to attain it."
Many a man is enjoying a fame which
is really due to a self-eifacing, sacrific
ing mother. People hurrah for the gov
ernor or mayor or Congressman, but the
real secret of his success is of len tucked
away in that little, unki.own, unappre
ciated, unhearaled mother. His educa
tion and his chance to rise may have
been due to her sacrifice.
It is strange that our mothers, the
mothers of the world, should get so lit
tle credit and should be so seldom men
tioned among the world's achievers.
The world sees only the successful son,
the mother is only a round in the ladder
upon which he has climbed. Her fa mo
or.face is seldom seen in the papers, on
ly her son is lauded and held up to our
admiration. Yet it was that sweet pa
thetic figure in the background that
made his success possible.
There is no one in the average family,
the value of whose services begins to
compare with those of the mother and
yet there is no one who is more general
ly neglected or taken advantage of. She
must remain home evenings and look
after the children when the others are
out having a good lime. Her cares nev
er cease. She is responsible for the
house work, for the preparation of meals;
she has the children's clothes to make
or mend; there is company to be enter
tained, darning to be done and a score
of little duties which mast often be at

Senator Camden Will Reward
Senator Johnson N. Camden writes
the Kentucky Illiteracy Commission
from Washington that he will give f50
to the trustee who, in the. judgment of
the Kentucky Illiteracy Commission,
aids in making the best moonlight
school in the Slate. This prize will be
awarded on reports of campaigning done
by trustees to secure attendance at the
school, on the trustee's own attendance,
and other activities which the trustee
may perform toward making the school
a great success. There is yet time for
any trustee in the State to compete for
the priz . The second session of moon
light schools begins Oct. 5lb', and thous
ands of such schools will open then,
while many others will continue their
sessions already begun. Senator Cam
den sent his check to the Commission
and the prize will be in the hands of tlio
trustee by Thanksgiving. Senator Cam
den also writes his hearty endorsement
of this movement, which he is watching
from Washington with interest.

you have the first symptom of a run-down

ceeded in doing.
This is for bridge players, as well as
Republicans: Rubbers are seldom won
with nullo bids. The trick-taking poli
cy has deciJed advantages.
The sure way to get things done is to
go and do them; so, when it began to ap

promptly set about buying some.
It seems quite clear that the average
Republican politician is either hog-tied
to doctrine and argument some five years
obsolete, or lacks either doctrine or ar
gument of any kind whatsoever. Many
of them have opposed the administra
tion's war emergency measures. Yet,
for their part, what has been proposed?
Not a blessed thing!
We invite the attention of the Repub
lican Congressmen who have been block
ing the Administration's vigorous efforts
to befriend commerce and industry in
the following paragraph in the Boston
Advertiser, a Republican paper:
"We regret that we have heard hints
from Washington, in the past few days,
to the effect that some ambitious but not
unusually gifted Congressmen have
mide their plans to fight the Adminis
tration bill, and to expose some of its
glaring blunders.' Our friendly advice
to such marplots would be to consult
their own constituents first. We believe
that the popular demand for an imme
diate outlet and avenue to new markets
for American goods, and for new routei
of supply to this country, in such pro
ducts as the United States now lacks,
because of the war of the Nations, is prac
tically irresistible. Any Congressman

The law denied it to her. Blackstone
explained that "a mottier, as such, is
entitled to no power, but only to rever

Let us consider the meaning of the
former domestic helplessness of the
mother: The husband was master of
all. He had absolute and undisputed
control of his children. He could deed
or will them away from their mother,
even a child unborn, at his death. And
this he could do with his children, but
not with his property, before he him

A mother was compelled by law to
bring up her children in the religious
faith of their father, even if she did not
herself believe in it! A mother must be
meek and obedient and never interfere.
"now," said Lord Wyuford in the
English house of lords, "could a man
possibly educate his children if the
wife were allowed to interfere?"
But even then she could be driven
from her home. Her husband "could be
cruel, brutal, openly and grossly un
faithful, and no power could bar his
right to take his children from her, al
though the wife be blameless."
On the other band, a woman who
