Thero la HUH considerable doubt nnd unccrtaln'ty In -political affairs.
vThls Is probably more true In the Democratic than in the -Republican party
so far as nominations aro concerned. IAs matters arc going no one will have
a majority, not to speak of two-thirds of the delegates at Baltimore. The
Wk New York delegation la unpledged out It Is supposed to be frlondly to
Governor Harmon. If at any time his nomination seoms attainable all or
nearly all of the New York delegates may bo countod for him. Thoro Is
a report ithot the Arkansas delegation nlso Is favorable to Harmon and that
tho Texas and tho Nebraska delegates In addition to those of Ohio are likely
to favor him. Besides these ho has four In 'Maine and It Is 'probablo will
have some other states. Consequently while tho Governor Is accrodUrtl with
tout four votcn, now, yet ho may have really about HO delegates elected
CJow York 90, Maine 4, Arkansas 16. Beouuse thoytnro-not shouting doesn't
signify ' ; i
Governor Wilson was accredited wlh -34 delegates'' last week Okla
homa 10, Maine D, Wisconsin 19. Wo tako It an both factions In Pennsyl
vania wero favoring lilm that ho -will got the 76 votes of tviat stato which
will mako Ms vote 110 also, tho tamo ns we liavo accredited to Gov. Harmon
iBut Wilson may not get nil tho votos of Pennsylvania. Hlowovur, It Is said
that thrcofourths of the1 20 delegates from Kansas uro Wilson men and that
(three-fifth;? oMhem arc authorized to cast tho whole dologatron, 20 votes,
after the first, ballot (or whom thoy lloslro. Hcnco Wilson may almost bo
accredited with some strength In Kansas. Champ Clark lends tho van -with
134 'delegates from six states utid he may load on tho II rut ballot In conven
tion for Now York may ctuit her votes'for CMnyor Goynor on the oarly bal
lots. Governor Marshall of Indiana has 30 votos and Governor Burko of North
Dakota has 10 votos. The Now York llornld's correspondents, despite tho
victory of Clark over Wilson In Illinois, stilt report tho latter In the ascend
ant in most of tho state.? And even In Now York whoro tho delegates aro
against him almost to a man tho HoraW says he leads In popularity among
In tho Republican ranks Taft has 331 delegates, nearly nil made by 4he
steam-roller process that means by packing conventions and manipulating
I affairs without subjecting them to a pcpular vote, Jtoosovelt has 116, 'La
FollcMo 36, Cummins 4 and unlnstructcd 2. Thus It appears that Taft has
a majority njid tho lndicntlonsi-huvo 1een that his friends would forco his
.nomination. ' yrhit Isyery irju'ch tfioalrcd on the part of those T)emocrats
who havo carofully analyzed the sltuutlou. It is believed any Domocrat can
bat.Taf t,. . Biftj)lt Isn't so certain that any Democrat cun ooat noosevclt or
dudgo llutflibsf vrheri nre many RopuWlesns who would not vote for rtoosc
h'olt but thero aro th usandu of Democrats who would. Thcrdfore, the
Colonel would bo an unknown quantity. iLook at Illinois for a sample of
What may happ'on. But Taft has shown no vtrongth nnywhorc In a popular
candidacy. A close htudy of tho figures Indicates that hn would loso all the
Progressive statas. Tho llnul count in North Dakota gives him only 1.500 in
perhaps CO, 000 votos. Thero Is so much feeling 'between tho Taft and Boose
rv7t forces1 that both sides aro determined to light It out to a finish. But
,among Democrats thero Is a disposition to concentrate on itho most avallablo
.man and win. I
A Hidden Enemy to Health.
B aro beginning to understand tho Intlmnto connection botwoen tho
mind and tho body, and that many of tho physical 111b from which wo
suitor havo a mental rather than a material cause And one of tho
mnntoi utnton ihnt In a nrlmo promoter of physical wca iB'dlBcontont
Thomnn or woman who Is Just plain dlecontended Is laying a foundation for
many physical Ills, If Indood ho Is not aircaay Buiicrmg iroan mom atyi won
dering what can bo their cause ... . . ... '
Thero aro two kinds of discontent, dlvlno discontent that urgpBon to
better things, and Just plain, everyday discontent that makes usyeour and
bitter and Irritable. Dlvlno discontent is a good thing. Its acllonda health
ful, This kind of discontent Is not under discussion. But tho ordinary dis
content of which all of us havo attacks now and then Is harmful. And wo
should recognize It ne Injurious, nnd rid ourflelvca of It as quickly as possible
Just as soon as tho gorm of discontent beginB to work 1a our mind, every
thing begins to look gloomy. Llfo taken on a peoBimlBtlo tlngo. Nothing la
right or goes right. Tho body catches tho cuo. Wo grow irritable Vo scold
tho children or reprimand our buBinoss associates. This means' ttfat wires
are crossed In tho ncrvo region. Next, tho Btomach sulks. . Wo "don't want
anything to eat, and what wo do eni disagrees wuu us, ,Anon,our nona
begins to ache Tho world lookn bluer and bluer. Our-spirits Wg. It 1b
llko an endless chain. Tho mind affects tho body, nnd tho body in turn
lowers tho tono of tho mind. And bo It goes; nnd, unless wo put a atop to it,
tho last atato of tho discontented man or woman calls for a medical board and
a sanltorlum. ... . , ,
Many a person who 1b nulforlng and dosing for Indigestion or nervous
troublo or Insomnia would find, If ho would got busy and chaao tho disorder
right down lo Hb beginning, that discontent was tho npark that had lighted
tho wholo conflogratlon. Ho Is out of aorta with his work, hla home, his eur
roundlng8, his associates, hla social position. Ho is not contont In Bomo
direction, and It frets him, Irritates him, seta up a fovor in his mind, and then
tho body falle in lino with Ita physical correspondence
Tho troublo with this sort of discontent la that It Is content to remain
discontent. If it would go briskly to work to remedy, or oIbo to put out of
mind, tho thing that la bothering It, tho Ills that onauo would quickly dis
appear. For dlBContont Is inactive It rails at tho causo, but-lt sltu'apathotlo
under tf. For as Boon as discontent tnkos oft lta coat and boglna to work to
remove tho troublo, It Id no iongor discontent. It 1b bowing a path straight
to contont. Energy and activity will Boon batter down tho Btronghqld of this
blddon enemy to health'. And onco freed from it, tho spirits will jrovlvo, tho
pity grow bluq, and strength return onco moro to tho body.

but 9. As there are 12 moro to be elected by tho stato convention and as
Jtoosevolt's forces will get them that may chan'go the wholo situation of
politics. It wob thought 'by some astute politicians, and even conceded by
somo Taft leaders, If Pennsylvania should go to pieces on tho Roosevelt at
tack that .then a compromise candidate would bo considered. .But Taft,
blmself, and Some of his close friends .do not Intend .to do anything of the

Colonel tloesn't Intend to seek a compromlso candidate either. When he re.

thusiastic, self-assertive and cocky as over and declaring thut ho was In tho

they had 337 delegates was unfounded and that they had about 150 apiece.
There Is little doubt ithat tho result In Pennsylvania 'has made a tremendous
