PRESIDENT-ELECT FAILED TO
GET POPULAR MAJORITY
IN CONTEST.
PARENTS AND TEACHERS.
Thousands of people are complain
ing evsry year that the public schools
are not "making good." They cannot
understand why the great majority of
Soya, after reaching the sixth or sev
enth grade, fall to pass their examin
ations, become discouraged and drop
out of school, says the Columbia State.
The small proportionate number of
graduates they regard as proving that
something is radically wrong In the
scheme and methods of Instruction.
Not for a moment do they remember
what they are asking of the
schools. If they would compare
their Outlay for education with
the outlay for heating or light
tng their homes and then compare the
results, they would agree that no other
Investment yields returns worthy to
be mentioned by the side of their in
vestment In the public schools, yet
they Insist that the school? should ac
complish for average boy or girl ten
times what they do accomplish. The
mother or father who will give to the
children In the family an hour or as
sistance each day will have no reason
to be disappointed with the school sys
tem. If they will three times a year
visit the schools and spend half an
hour In them, learning at first hand
what the task of the teachers Is and
how much the taxpayers have asked
the school system to do, they will con
clude that wonders are being achieved
at nominal cost and they will be con
vinced, moreover, that In respect to
their own children they may not ex
pect the working of miracles unless
they set themselves to do faithfully
what Is physically beyond the powers
of the overworked teachers.

The fact that several Nebraska
young women graduating from the de
partment of agriculture at Washing
ton into places of responsibility as
seed experts, some In state universi
ties, while naturally gratifying to
their neighbors, is mo?: significant In
this, that it shows what a potent In
fluence the government is exerting to
ward implanting the principle of in
tensive agriculture, says the Omaha
Beo. The first steps In the process of
making two blades of grass gro-a
where but one grew before Is the
proper selection of seed and proper
preparation of the so:!. The federal
government Is doing a great work,
therefore, in thus fostering this move
ment and co-operating in 1: with state
educational institutions. Together
they are making the selection ci seed
for agriculture and horticulture a sci
ence and a business. Of course, this
opens up to young men and womeu lu
crative fields of service, but that is
only Incidental to the main purpose
of improving iac-thods of farming.

Women are indignant over the state
ment of a German expert at Washing
ton lately that cooking la a lost art.
1c view of the cooking schools Ad
the housewives' leagues, both so popu
lar now, and in the way which wom
n are earnestly trying to raise cook
ing in the eyes of their sex to a sci
ence worthy of respect and attention,
the statement is rather a sweeping
one. In fact, the average moderata
mind takes all the broad assertions
concerning the general deterioration
of the world with more than a few
grains of allowance for the zeal of the
speaker on special occasions when
; broad statements seem to be in order.
New York. Figures en the populni
vote for president iu every state of
Lhe Union, compiled hero from Oftl
cial and the best unofficial reports ob
tainable, show conclusively, although
they are lucomplete, that WoodrOW
Wilson failed to get u popular major
lty. Without the Progressive caadu'a'e
In the race, and had their vote been
cast with the Kepublicans. President
Taft would have carried not fewer
tiiaa 32 states Instead of the two or
three now left in his column, and
would have had 358 or more votes iu
the electoral college, where rnly 266
are neceeeary to choice.
Not more than 16 states, and vir
tually every one of theee in the solid
South, would have bou carried for
Wilson.
The extent of the success which
would hare been tha president's in
his race for re-election 13 indicated
whem the vote cast for him in the va
rious states is combined with that for
Roosevelt, and the total compared
with that for Wilson. Admittedly
some Democrats voted tor Roosevelt,
but this to offset by Republican votes
that went to Wilson and by the fail
ure of some Republicans to vote.
By adding caretul estimates to com
plete official and unofficial figuies. It
is found that Wilson fails npproxi
matelv 1.267,67:.' votes short o! hav
ing a popular majority (ver Roosevelt
and Taft. He is shown in a tabid
thus compiled to have roceived 6,398,
9B7 votes, as against a total of 7.o60,
069 for Roosevelt and Taft combined.
The Roosevelt total is 4.315, $05 and
that for Taft 3, 350. 864.
The state in which Roosevelt ail

a greater vote than Wilson are: Col

the amendments.
Interest centered about four of the
amendments: No. 1, increasing the
school age maximum and mlnmum;
No. 6, providing for single tax; No. 7,
abolishing the state board of equali
sation and creating state tax commis
sion, and No. 9, providing a state edu

Single tax led all the amendments

vigorous campaign by educators
throughout the state was waged, came
nearest passing. St. Louis gave a
healthy majority for this amendment,
but the state vete easily will defeat

Single Tax Blamed for Defeata. s
The single tax amendment Is
blamed by the championu of the other
amendments for their defeats. It Is
claimed the farmers, to be sure of de

all the amendments.
With only two counties unheard
from. 74 complete and 3S complete ex

Missouri shows a plurality for Wood

Figures Are Interesting,
I The Missouri returns for lill2 fur
! nish one of tl:e greatest studies of all
; elections ever held in the state. Four
1 years ago the state was Kepublicau,
1 but on a materially smaller voie than
! they received in the 1908 campaign
the Democrats not only overturned
I (he Republican plurality, but piled up
i the largest Democratic plurality ever
1 given in the state.
i Necessarily, the Republican vote
fell off at least two to one. In Si.
Louis for instance, where the election
was regarded as a terrific Democratic
landslide. Wilson polled 1,9(6 fewer
votes than Dryan did In 1908. And at
lhat time Taft carried St. Louis by
13.000. while with approximately 2.000
fewer votes the Democrats overcame

For purely material comfort, for a
padded life for the rich and one with
few splinters for the less fortunate,
the old world offers advantages above
America, says the Cleveland Leader.
The chances for the education of the
eye and ear in beautiful pictures and
In worthy music are superior to those
of this new land; the deference paid
to money even in countries supposed
to be monarch ial and castle-ridden
ia more marked than it is here.
Europe Is an ideal place for those
who love luxurious living and are able
to pay for It
In giving the amounts of dressmak
ers' bills for royal ladies an account
says that Queen Wilhelmlna heads the
list with a considerable lead. But
while she dresses more expensively
than the empresses of Germany and
Russia, It is to be remembered that
he has one great advantage over
those imperial ladles, as she, and not
her husband, hold the pursestrlngs of
the family and has the last word when
