Columbus. Money lost In bank fail
ures enn not be made to operate as
an excuso to exceed the 1 per cent tax
levy limit, according to an order of
the Ohio tax commission, directed to
the auditor of Knox county. The
school treasurer of Oann corporation
had' f520.85 In a bank when It failed
and tho patrons of the school voted
tn release him from responsibility for
tho loss. To make up tho deficiency
li Is now sought to exceed tho limita
tions of the 1 per cent law.
Tho tax commission rules that this
can not be done and that if the limit Is
to be exceeded It can bo done only by
a vote of tho people. The commis
sion feels that tho school ought not
bo permitted to suffer by reason of
tho loss but holds that the law is
plain and can not be disregarded. It
recommends a vote of the people to
take care of the situation.
What was the meaning of the ex

Republican state convention in De

from their dally routine of business
Jetails, do not leap to their feet and
shout with vehement uproar unless
they have a reason for their actions.
These delegates from every part of
Michigan were passionately in earnest
about something. They were ardent,
ablaze with desire for what? When
tho name of the president was spoken
they burst into vociferous acclamation.
When they heard the suggestion that
tho Republican party continue its ad
ministration they Indorsed" it by tho
most emphatic utterance at their com
mand. Why did they want another
term for President Taft? What Is It

Mr. Taft's first term has brought
PEACE. The nation has had four
years of tranquil relations with the
world. It has been Peace with honor.
America stands today pre-eminent on
earth. Her diplomacy has been firm,
conserving the duo rights of tho Unit

none, defending with dignity what Is
our own, asking nothing that Is not
our own. Peace at home and abroad
that is one result of tho laBt four
years of Republican control of the
It has been a time of PROGRESS.
In federal and state affairs there has
been no backward step. Safely and

that experienced and wise judgment

our relations with one another tho
course of events has been onward

Is it any wonder that the men of
Michigan want these continued? Is
It nny wonder that they evidence en

What did the opponents of this man

They try to belittle the results of the
present administration. What were

when the common laborers who in
this time of ours are getting ?2.25
and $2.50 for eight or nine hours'
work were desperately and often vain
ly hunting the chance to work twelve
hours, any number of hours, for 90
cents, when they stood hungry In the
Campus Martius and pitiably pleaded
for work of any kind to keep them
selves nnd their families from starva
tion, when work was not to be had
and the soup kitchen and potato
patch were their only salvation.
We saw scenes nlmost as distress
ing In 1907 right here in Detroit. Then
the government of the city was
stormed by a procession of idle men,
demanding the inauguration of public
enterprises that they might earn a
few dollars to avert hunger. Has
anybody forgotten the days of 1907?
Is if strange that sane men want to
continue tho conditions of the present
time? This Is the reason why the
names of the Republican party and of
President Taft brought tho great as

shouts last Tuesday.

They want no more Poverty, no

payer, who asked for an injunction to
prevent the Cuyahoga county election
hoard from printing tho names of Judi
cial candidates on the separate hallo1.,

for whom they were casting their bal
lots, and that a large portion of the

Judges Johnson, Donahue and

Will Enforce Motion Picture Law.
Determined that the law prohibiting
the turning of motion picture reels by
motors or other mechanical devices
must bo strictly obeyed, Thomas E.
Kearns, chief Inspector of the depart
ment of workshops and factories, has
begun an Investigation that will reach
all parts of tho state. Proprietors o!
theaters at once will bo advised If they
are violating the law and, In case of
failure to' comply with instructions,
will be prosecuted.
The action of Inspector Kearns is
taken to prevent fires resulting from
the Ignition of the highly inflammable
films. If a motor or other device con
trols the pictures automatically, the
operator leaves the booth, It Is point
ed out, and, In the event of an acci
dent, the blaze gains headway before
discovered. "When the reel is turned
by hand this danger, of necessity, is
obviated, Mr. Kearns declares.
To Try It On the Monkeys.
African monkeys of tho Rhesus fam

ings, are being used by the Ohio State
Board of Health here for a series of
experiments to find some means of ef
fectively fighting Infantile paralysis.
Secretary Eugene F. McCampbell, of
tho board, said that more would be
needed, and he has put in his order
with dealers In New York. The In
creasing menace of infantile paralysis
and the futility of the present methods
of fighting the disease prompted Dr.
McCampbell to start the experiments.
There are at present from 300 to 500
cases in Ohio, and In some forms it is
marked by a high mortality rate. Dr.
Frank Boudrcau inoculated the mon
keys with virus from diseased chil
dren. The struggles of the monkeys
with the disease are being carefully
rioted. Various forms of treatment are
being tried on them, and the results

When tho uncle of a couple of

of candy, which were given to the
little girl to divide with her brother.
Later the uncle summoned this
child to the living room and aBked:
"Marie, when you divided those five
pieces of candy with your brother, did
you gle him two and a half pieces?"
"No. air," said Marie. "I saw they

Begin Appraisal of Telephones.
At the rate of 150 companies a day,
the state tax commission has begun
the work of appraising, the property
of 700 telephone concerns in Ohio. Of

of all these properties. The commis

and the companies will simply be giv

BREAKING OUT ON LEG
Hilltop, Kan. " About two years ago
I began to notice- a breaking out on my
leg. At first it was very small but
soon it began to spread until It formed
larga blotches. Th itching was ter
rible and almost constant Many
nights I could not sleep at all. After
scratching it to relieve tho itching it
would burn so dreadfully that I
'thought I could not stand It. For near
ly a year I tried all kinds of salves
and ointment, but found no relief.
Some salves seemed to make it worse
until there were ugly sores, which
would break open and run.
"One day I saw an advertisement of,
Cuticura Remedies. I got a sample of
the Cuticura Soap and Cuticura Oint
ment and began by washing the sores
with the Cuticura: Soap, then applying
tho Cuticura Ointment twice a day.
I noticed a change and got more Cuti
cura Soap and Ointment and in a few
weeks I was cured. It has healed so
nicely that no acur remains." (Signed)
