Thus, thru the neglect of the citizens
four out of the seven amendments failed
to get a decisive vote in the county. The
two that did are among the most im
portant ones. No. 7, designed to limit
the powers of the big cities in the state
secured the least vote. People evi
dently enjoy being ruled by the cities
and those who failed to vote Yes on No.
7 ought not to complain on this score
after this. The result in the entire
state will likely not be known for some
time yet.
The Next President.
Woodrow Wilson has been elected to
the presidency by the largest vote in the
electoral college which any president
has received for half a century or more.
He owes his election to the solid support
of the progressive Democrats, to the
split in the Republican party and to the
independent Republican voter who be
came so disgusted with the quarrelling
in the Republican party that he said to
both the Taft and Roosevelt factions,
"a plague on both your houses," and vot
ed for Wilson.
In President Wilson the American
people have chosen a man whose polit
ical career has been short, but whose
public service has been long. During
his whole life he has been "public
minded" instead of "private-minded,"
devoting his abilities and energy to the
service of the public with only inciden
tal attention to provision for his own
financial welfare.
After long years of service as a stu
dent and author in which he contribut
ed much original thought to the diag
nosis of American politics and econom
ics, he was called to the executive chair
of the state of New Jersey, and there
proved that he could be frank, firm and
just in dealing with the issues pres
ented.
In the contest for the presidency he
brought to the discussion of public
questions the logic of the scholar, and
the sincerity of a gentleman, and these
are the qualities which attracted the
voter in these days of turmoil.
President Wilson will have behind him
a Democratic house and probably a
Democratic senate, but there will be no
sharp of reversal of governmental pol
icy. We look to see President Wilson
and the Democrats do the things which
the whole country wants done, but
which the Republicans have somewhat
failed in doing because of their internal
dissensions.
The bogie of Democratic hard times
did not appeal seriously to the voters
and there is really no danger but that
business conditions will continue good
because of the good crops and the at
tention which is given to substantial
business instead of to speculation.
Incidentally, it may be mentioned that
the election of Wilson marks a defin
ite revival of the influence of the South
in national affairs. Until the slavery
question overshadowed all others, the
South contributed many, if not most of
the great men of the nation, but with
the coming on of the slavery question
and all the events which followed it, the
nation has been poorer for what it has
lacked of southern culture and southern
point of view.—Morris Tribune.
Bankrupt Charged With Concealing
Stock.
Hans M. Jensen, arrested Saturday at
Cokato, Minn., on a charge of conceal
ing bankrupt stock, today waived ex
amination when taken before United
States Commissioner H. S. Abbot, was
held to the grand jury and released
on $3,000 bail. Jensen ran a clothing
store at 43 Central avenue for a time,
and filed papers in bankruptcy last Jan
uary. He was discharged after a hear
ing last July. Jensen went to Cokato
and opened a clothing store about a
month ago Jensen is charged with con
cealing sixteen cases of men's furnish
ings when he filed his paper in bank
ruptcy and later shipping them to Co
kato to dispose of them.—Dassel An

State Klffhway Between Here and Twin
Cities Held Up by Wrlfht
County Board.
The county commissioners of Wright
county by a vote of three to two have
indefinitely postponed any decisive -ac
tion on selecting a route for a state
rural highway. This action was taken
the day following a special meeting,
when petitions were read and" petition
ers were heard for and against the se
lection of the various routes.
The granting of the petitions would
incur greater expense on the taxpayers
of the county than the board felt war
ranted in imposing on them without
submitting the granting of the petitions
to a vote. As the legislature will meet
in January, the board hopes that the
law now existing may be so amended
that both the granting of the petitions
and the issuing of the bonds for the
building of the roads will be decided
by vote of the people.
It will be seen that nothing will be
done till the next legislature has ad
journed.—Litchfield Review.

TYPHOID FEVER (Concluded)
After our little talk last week about
what typhoid fever is and some of the
things responsible for its spread, and
how we can do much toward prevent
ing it, you will naturally ask, "What
are some of the early symptoms," and
what is the best way to manage a
case?"
There is usually experienced a tired
feeling probably accompanied with back
ache, loss of appetite, constipation,
headache,. legache and at first a slight
rise in temperature in the afternoon
and early evening.
Right here we want to give it as our
opinion, that if all food.is stopped and
vigorous elimination obtained by the
use of proper purgatives and high colon
flushings, continued until the entire
system is cleansed, the attack will end
right there. "But," you say, "How do
we know, if left alone it would or would
not have developed into typhoid?" W
don't. But wouldn't you rather have
these symptoms cut short than to let
them run just to Bee if typhoid would
develop?
But let us suppose that the symptoms
have not been'checked the temperature
rises a little higher every afternoon and
evening, the lassitude, and exhausted
feeling increases until after a few days
to a week, or ten days, the patient is
taken to his bed and we now have a
sure case of typhoid on our hands.
What is the best course to pursue?
Get a physician who knows, and let
him put a competent trained nurse on
the case. "But," you say, "this is not
always possible for the average family,
and the other costs a little too much."
Very well, let us outline a course of
home management that has proven very
successful.
The patient is put to bed in the quiet
est, best ventilated and easiest to get at
room in the house.
Begin the treatment by giving a cop
ious high injection, or enema, of warm
water, to cleanse the bowels.
FOOD: Absolutely no food Is to be
given until the patient is hungry and
asks for it. It is extremely hard to im-.
press this upon the mind of the aver
age person. They believe that a sick
person must be fed, "to keep up his
strength." In reference to typhoid, this
conception is absolutely false. In speak
ing of feeding in typhoid, Dr. Keith
says, "We tell you plainly—may we
urge upon you, not to give food in ty
phoid unless the appetite of the patient
calls for food."
Dr. J. H. Tilden, who has had many
years experience in managing typhoid
cases, has this to say: "I have the pa
tient given a glassful of hot water ev
ery three hours, with ten grains of car
bonate soda besides the hot water the
patient may have all the cold water de
sired. I never allow a patient disturbed
at night. Everything has to be through
with by 9 o'clock in the evening and the
lights turned out for the night. I or
der a tub bath twice a day. The pa
tient is put in warm water, then cold
water is turned on, and the warm is to
be drawn off until the water in the bath
is as cold as it will get. I usually keep
the patient submerged until chilliness
comes on from heat extraction," (usual
ly a few minutes to half an hour.) Old
Dr. Keith generally used the cold tow
el and sheet pack. He wrapped the pa
tient in cold, wet bath towels and over
them a wet sheet, and over all a blank
et. In the course of a few minutes to
an hour the patient should perspire
freely, after which he is to be washed
and rubbed dry, one limb at a time to
prevent chilling. He said that the cold
bath was safer for inexperienced at
tendants.
Something in This.
The Lake City Graphic-Sentinel says:
The real problem of the day is not "the
cost of living," but the "cost of high
living." When you're out for a spin in
your auto, think it over.

Candace Lam Dei. Clough was born
N'ov. 25, 1850 on the Big Foote Prairie,

parents moved to Palatine, 111., where
she received her education.
After attending Cook Co. Normal she
taught two years in the vicinity of Pal

She then married R. F. Clough, a for
mer schoolmate and went to his home
at Whiteleld, Minnesota where she re
sided until March of this year. The farm
was then sold and she with her hus
band moved to Raymond. In July she
and her husband started for Chicago in
hopes to get rid of a cancer from which
she had been suffering about a year.
The cancer was removed but her
strength not sufficient to withstand the
nervous strain and she passed to her
home above October 29. She was of a
retiring but cheerful disposition and her
greatest desire as to follow in the The report of the secretary showed a

Preparing for Parcels Post.
The parcels post law will go into ef
fect January 1st. The instructions are
that distinctive parcels post stamps will
be issued to all postmasters before aJn.
and after that date all fourth class
mail, regardless of the weight of tho
parcel, will have to bear the special
stamp Instead of the ordinary postage
stamp. Failure of a sender to comply
with this rule will cause the mail to be
held for postage. No parcel will be ac
cepted for mailing unless it bears the
return card of the sender. Parcels post
mail will be mailable only at postoflices,
branch postomces and lettered and local
named stations and such other places
as the postmaster Bhall designate. The
postmaster general has notiled post
masters that a map showing the postal
zones and postage rate is being prepar
ed and will soon be sent to different
offices.—Ex.

WILLMAR TRIBUNE, WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 13,
Again quoting Dr. Tilden: "For the
tired aching pain, which all patients
complain of, massage is to be given. At
least three times a day the patient
should be rubbed and kneaded gently.
When tympanites (swelling of the abdo*
men) begins to appear the nurse should
rub the abdomen gently every three
hours the rubbing must be light, but
thorough. This will favor the expul
sion of gas, relieve the pain, improve
the circulation, and give much comfort
Every night an enema of a half gall
on of warm water with a teaspoonful
of salt, is used until symptoms of diar
rhea appear, then stop or use every
other night. What I recognize as a crit
ical discharge will make its appear
ance from the seventh to the tenth day
until this discharge appears I do not
give nourishment. Along with the ap
pearance of this discharge will come a
decided lowering of the temperature,
and the puffy abdomen will sink down
and become soft all sensitiveness to
touch will disappear. Feeding should
begin at this time, and never before."
The diet for the first few days should
consist of buttermilk, or lactic culture
milk. After three or zour days of this,
baked apples with a swiebach may be
allowed. Gradually allow, fresh, ripe
fruit (bananas and tomatoes excluded)
fruit jelly and dry toast After a week
or so of this abstemious diet the patient
may have a little more of substantial
food, remembering that it is always bet
ter to underfeed than to overfeed a ty
phoid convalescent
The above is merely an outline of a
very simple, yet effective method of

CLUB NOTES.
Greeley.
Dear Doctor:
I am a young man of 24 years of age,
and supposed to be suffering with pul
monary tuberculosis. I was a book
keeper in an Indiana city for three
years. Last February I had a severe
attack of lagrippe, and the cough stay
ed with me all spring and early sum
mer. My physician told me that I was
in the first stages of consumption and
advised me to go to a high and dry al
titude.
I seem to do fairly well here, but do
not gain in strength as rapidly" as I
would wish. Any suggestions from you
would be gratefully received.
My opinion is that you can be cured,
provided you pursue the proper course.
You should by all means sleep outdoors.
I suppose you are doing like ninety out
of a hundred other consumptives that
go west, sleeping indoors, paying no at
tention to your diet getting outdoors
and exercising only when you feel like
it paying no attention to deep breath
ing exercises, or in other words, just
taking life easy and expecting the lit
tle sunshine and fresh air you get to
cure you. Health must be earned, get
out and get it.
Sleep outdoors, work on t£ farm,- not
too hard, but do as much as your
strength will permit. Practise deep
breathing exercises two or three times
daily. Get interested in something and
work at it, to get results, forget your
self.
I should be glad to write you explic
itly, if you will give me more details
regarding.your case. ~"'}^~..

Why Hot Free Boxes?
The Delano Eagle truthfully says
that, "Penny postage is not needed-
neither is free delivery of letters An
small villages, but we can get along
more satisfactorily if we get free box
es. The boxes are more of a conven
ience to the postofflce employees than
anyone else, and it is hard to under
stand how in such a progressive country
as this we can consent to be mulcted ev
ery 3 months in a mail tax by way of
box rent. When a letter is duly stamp
ed Uncle Sam agrees to transmit it to
its destination. In towns above a cer
tain size that is done, and even the
'farmers living, miles from the post/
office get their mail delivered free—If
you live one block away from the post
office (or even next door) you must go
after your mail—and mall a quarterly
tax for the privilege. We hope Re

Bart Oilman of Truman, Watonwan
County, Grow* 110 Bushels
Bar Acre.
The championship record for Minne
sota held by Alfred Carlsted, of Das
sel, has been beaten several points by
Earl Oilman,. 16 years old of Truman,'
Watonwan county, whose record in the
Corn Growing Contest is 110.9 bushels
on one acre. Carlsted's record a year
ago was 106 bushels, which was remark
able at that time.
The prizes offered by the Extension
Division of Agriculture represents $600
and together with this the Minneapolis
Tribune offers a $200 scholarship fee
to the Agriculture College.
Last year's record is also beaten by
another boy, Warren Simpson, 14 years
old, of Northneld, Dakota county, who
has a record of 106 bushels and 3 pecks.
Oilman's details of his corn-growing
experience are given as follows:
A well drained piece of land was se
lected near a grove which had produc
ed oats the previous year. This was
plowed in the fall and in the spring 75
loads of well-rotted straw manure was
spread and well worked into the soil.
Old seed corn was used, the variety
being Minnesota No. 13. It was sub
jected to a germination test, and the
seed then graded by hand. A hand
marker was used to mark the rows
which were placed three feet apart, and
the holes for each hill of corn were dug
with a hoe. The seed was then drop
ped in -by hand, four kernels being plac
ed in each hill. Hardly had the corn
been planted when the gophers com
menced to damage it, and a large part
of the field had to be re-planted several
times. Earl did not rest until he had
poisoned or shot every gopher in the
immediate neighborhood of his acre.
When the corn was about three inches
high a frost came,' freezing the plants
and killing them to the ground. The
weather was so cold that Earl despaired
of obtaining any crop, yet he still per
sisted and the field was cultivated four
times by July 6th. At this time the
young corn expert crushed his foot ac
cidentally, and the corn received scant
attention for several weeks. The weeds
grew up and were removed only with
difficulty later in the season. So fav
orable was the weather, however, when
the corn had secured a good start that
it progressed rapidly. the third
week in September, it had fully matur
ed.
The yield was certainly wonderful
and young Gilman has bestowed himself
with honors that will be known thruout
every state and of which he can be
proud all his life.—Litchfield Review.

A Magnificent Audience Present to Hear
the Hew Organ at the Jiutheran
Church Tuesday Evening
Over eight hundred lovers of music
were seated in the new Lutheran church
Tuesday evening to hear the new organ
under the masterly touch of Hamlin H.
Hunt of Minneapolis, one of the great
est organists in the United States, and
whose splendid ability in this line has
been applauded at the St. Louis World's
Fair, at the Buffalo Exposition, and at
Boston and in Paris. He is a master
and those who heard the big organ re
spond to his magic touch, know to what
extent the big pipes can reveal the pow
er of him who manipulates the key
board.
The audience was filled with expect
ancy, for many had never heard a big

from the opening note to the close, ap
preciation beamed in every eye, and
nothing but the request of Pastor Tet
lie that no applause be given kept that
charmed mass of humanity from a
grand outburst of approval.—Canton, S.

At the Expense of the Best of Vm.
This week Minneapolis is having a
"Made in Minneapolis" show, products
of the manufacturing interests being
shown in display windows of the Nic
ollet avenue stores, and the street lined
with larger machinery exhibits. The
census report shows that Minneapolis
has more factory employees and a great
er value of products per capita of pop
ulation than any city in this country,
and the totals exceed many other larger
cities. This is fine, and we are proud of
Minneapolis, but let us not forget the
advantage Minneapolis has over the cit
ies with which comparisons are made.
In practically all of the other states the
smaller towns have factories, and pros
perity is distributed over the states. In
Minnesota we have freight rate discrim
inations which have resulted In factor
ies started in the smaller places moving
to Minneapolis, as they were unable to
compete in trade with freight rates
against them. Some large flour mills
in Southern Minnesota moved to Minne
apolis because they could ship in wheat
at a better rate, and the rate on flour
from Minneapolis to Chicago was less
than from towns 100 or more miles
nearer to Chicago. This accounts for
the supremacy of Minneapolis as a
manufacturing point in comparison with
cities in states in which the smaller
towns have their Just share of indus
tries. In Wright county we have near
ly five millions dollars on deposit in the
banks. Under normal conditions some
of the owners of this money would in
vest it in factories, and surplus in banks
would be loaned to the factories in the
legitimate conduct of their business.
Instead of that our banks have large de
posits in Minneapolis and Ne York,
which are loaned in those places. This
is a condition and not a theory.—Buf

Liquor and Labor
By CHARLES STELZLE
ILL. the abolition of the liquor traffic create a labor panic? This is a
fair question, especially as it is asked by tbe workinjrman, who wor
ries more about losing bis job than be does about going to bell. To
his mind, therefore, tbe economic aspects of tbe liquor problem are more im
portant than any other. Tbe accompanying chart presents some interesting
Information with reference to this subject. The figures employed were taken
from the Bulletin of Statistics on Manufactures. 1910, table I. Tbe tonnage
on tbe railroads of the country derived from tbe liquor industry amounts to
only .003 of its total business. There isn't much in it for tbe railroad man.

thatthcrewill bcalaborpanic ifthe liquor industry is destroyed ?,
Of the total crop of grain for 1911 only 3 per cent was used In the liquor
business. There isn't much in it for tbe farmer. These are also government
statistics, and the government isn't in the anti-saloon business. Invariably
when compared with other Industries the liquor business is at a disadvantage.
Tbe liquor business employs only one-fifth as many workers for the same
amount invested as is tbe case in the average number employed in the textile,
iron, lumber, leather and paper industries. The worker in the liquor business
receives only about one-third as much of the profit in the business as those in
these industries receive. The individual worker may receive more money,
largely because there are few women employed, but It is a well known fact
that tbe brewery worker dies at an earlier age than do tbe workers In the
average ipdustry. For example, between the ages of forty-five and fifty-fire
the Average death rate for occupied males is 20.7 per thousand, but among the
brewery workers the death rate at tbe same age is 30.8 per thousand* more
than 50 per rent higher. Whnt.about tbe bartenders, salesmen and other
workers in the liqiior business? These bare been eliminated in this discus
sion, becnusp w'njitever. imminent applies to these workers in the liquor busl
oes«* appHes with even u'* i'er force to those in tbe other Industries mentioned.
