The re election of Governor I!>>gers
wa« only nade possible by the votes of

illustrate how the pendulum of politics
will swing in four years' time, says the

years ago looked as thonuh they would
be eternally opposed to his doctrines
and party. Tiie calamity which they
expected did not come with his election;
instead came prosperity. They required
an optical demonstration, and they got
it. The only political party that, once
in power, can rein tin then 1 for any con
siderable length of time, in the one that
can make good its promises and theories.
It makes no difference what name it
bears, sensible people will support it.

The return*, while fur from complete on

that the present republican majority in
the house will be increased in the next

by a congress in harmony with his poli

The late election secerns to have dem

them nothing they do not know. Vot

shows, and their opinions are not mold

Public speakers served their day when
the statesmen were the politicians. Now
every citizen is a politician unto himself
Be gets hin impressions from print, and
they are more accurate than they could
be under any other circumstances. Too
often speeches are mere appeals to preju
dice. It has come to be impossible to
review political causes in their whole
significance, as voters have learned to
require them treated, in a single discus
sion or in several. The result i B that
public opinion is less sensitive to mo

than ever before.

Their Decorative and Practical
.Merit—When to Plant.
It is at this season that we recognize
inosi fully tht> beauty and utility of the
evergreens. Many property holders,
viewing their home grounds critically,
will detect something unsatisfactory,
due perhaps to a lack of these trees and
shrubs. 11l scch a case it is an excel
lent idea to determine just what and
where we will plant next year. The
Kansas statiou has made quite a study
of this subject, on which it offers the
Evergreen trees are valuable for
screens, for wind breaks, for a back
ground against which to group trees
with highly colored leaves or branches
and for winter decoration. Too many
should not be used together near tbe
buildings, as they give a dark effect.
The best time to plant evergreen
trees is in the spring, during April or
May, just when the buds are ready to
push, or, if fall planting !s preferred, It
should be done in October or Novem
ber. Great care must be taken that the
roots do not become dry by exposure
to sun and wind. It is best to select
for their removal a moist day.
Austrian pine (Pinus austrlaca) is of
a compact growth. It is cone shaped,
with broad base. The leaves are dark
green and nearly six inches long. The
branches are equal around the tree and
well distributed. They need plenty of
room for good development. This tree
can be most .safely removed when not
more than three feet high.
Red cedar (Junlperus virginiana) is
one of the hardiest and most easily
grown evergreens, but the principal
objection to this tree Is that it Is often
badly attacked by the fungus (Gymnos
porangium macropua), which spoils
much of its attraction.
Scotch pine (Plnus sylvestris) Is of
more open spreading growth than the
Austrian pine. The branches and foli
age are not so heavy, and the leaves
arc of a lighter preen. The Scotch
pine grows quite rapidly and If care
fully handled can be reared with good
Dwarf pine (IMims montana) is a tree
that forms a low, broad, dense growth.
The trunk is divided at the base into
several ascending smooth branches.
The leaves are dark green. This tree
grows quite readily when transplant
ed, and it is considered one of the best
for hot and dry locations.
White spruce (Pices alba) is a very
good evergreen for this section of the
country, its growth is slow, but neat
and symmetrical. It sometimes at
tempts to grow two leaders, but this
can be easily prevented by pruning.
The foliage is light green. It thrives
on a variety of soils.
Colorado blue spruce is fully as
hardy and even more beautiful than
the white spruce. It is noted for its
handsome blue groen foliage. The tree
is of moderate growth, of rather a reg
ular and compact form. It needs but
little pruning and retains its pleasing
color during the entire year. It is com
paratively easy to transplant.
Treatment For Pluut Lice.
At one of the experiment slut ions
treating pelargoniums infested by aph
ides with one-half drain carbon bisul
phide for three hours was found to be
thoroughly effective in destroying the
insects without injury to the plants.
Chrysanthemums infested with the or
dinary brown aphis so common on
these plants were treated with »me
drain for two hours. This destroyed
the insects without affecting the plants,
which were In this case tender shoots
brought directly from the cellar in
which they were being wintered and
would therefore probably be more sus
ceptible to injury. Cinerarias were
treated in precisely the same manner,
also for aphides, and with both these
and the chrysanthemums the experi
ment seemed an unqualified success.
The young couple always together be

intimacy as man and wife. They are
not tired of each other, but the young

Physicians and friends could give little relief or encouragement to
one afflicted with this terrible disease. Even now doctors know of no remedy for this fearful malady ; while admitting it to be
a blood disease, they still insist that there is no hope outside of a surgical operation, and advise you to have the Cancer cut out,
but at the same time cannot assure you that it will not return. You may cut or draw out the sore, but another will come in
its place, for the disease is in the blood —is deep-seated and destructive, and beyond the reach of the surgeon's knife or
caustic, flesh-destroying plasters. The blood must be purified and strengthened, the system relieved of all poisonous, effete
matter before the Cancer sore will heal.
S. S. S. is the only medicine that can overcome this powerful aud contaminating poison and force it out of the blood. It
builds up and invigorates the old, and supplies new, rich, life-giving blood. S.S. S. is a purely vegetable remedy ; no mineral
can be found in it; the roots and herbs from which it is made contain powerful purifying properties that act directly upon
the blood system and make a safe and permanent cure of Cancer. It has cured thousands, why not you?
Cancer is not always inherited ; your family may be free from any taint, yet your blood may become so polluted that a severe

Look to the Foundation.
Improved roads are being construct
ed, ostensibly on the plans of Mac
adam or Tell'ord, but without the
foundation which alone can make such
roads permanently satisfactory. When
finished, they look well. But they will
not last. A'jain. tire mistake is being
made ou roads that were properly built
of neglecting breaks and holes until
they reach serious proportions. It is
false economy and it is ruinous to the
road. The true plan Is to have the
road constantly watched, and the mo
ment even the least fault is detected
correct it. A right beginning is as es
sential to the road Itself as to the trav
eler thereon. And eternal vigilance is
the price of good roads just as much as
it is of liberty.
All Should Be Taxed.
That a part of the burden of road
taxes should be borne by the cities and
towns there can be no question. And
why should they not? Thvy are un
questionably as greatly interested in
the improvement of the roads as are
the people of the country districts.
Their interests are to a great extent
mutual and inseparable, the one de
pendent upon the other, a fact that Is
patent to all thinking men and needs
no argument at this juncture to prove.
How to Fold n Dress Skirt.
All cotton skirts retain their shape
and hang better If folded each time
after they are worn instead of being
hung in the closet. They should be
folded In horizontal lines rather than
longitudinal lines, as the tendency in
wearing is always toward lengthwise
creases. First stretch the garment out
the full width, then double It down
ward from the belt to half the length
of the skirt, then double It over once in
a lengthwise fold, the only one that
should be made. Keep a long wide box
covered with denim and lined with
cambric to accommodate these skirts
and pile them in lightly one above the
other. This method of folding tends to
smooth out the lines and folds of wear.
Beware of Ointments for Catarrh

as mercury will surely destroy the sense of

the prood you can possibly derive from them.
