The extraordinary rfiort f
the St. 1 ouis J t public to
compel the ceitrnction of the
ballots cast nt the general elect
ion of iqoS is an open confus
ion that those ballots may
prove detrime ntal to the Demo
cratic party and may discredit
the election of Democratic
officials. Else why this con
tention over the duty of ofTicials
to burn the ballots? If they
are honest ballots and were
honestly counted, what harm
canresjltto ai.y one by their
The people are not so dull
that they cannot understand
the motive back of the effort of
the Republic and Democratic
lawyers to have the ballots cast
in the election of igoS destroy
ed. If they go into court to
have them destroyed, it will
prove that they have a desper
ate purpese to be accomplished.

"Burn the baJuts"' is xv now
frenzied cry of the Stone hearted
Democrata of Missouri.
If Governor Hadley pursues
his construction poiiui s to the
end of his term Missouri politics
will become too elevated fr the
little Democratic politicians, who
are now as busy as hr.ats on a
The S t. Louis Republic ha
about exhausted the Dun'Ciatic
legal talent of the .-:ste an eriort
to prove to the people that the
constitution provides for hiding
election frauds. Perhaps this is
one of thd steps in the Democrat
ic scheme to "save the party."
Missouri Republicans, so long
discouraged in the result of thtir
voting, are not now as apt to vote
as they ought to be. It is the
work of party organizers to jret
them to the polls, where their
long cherished principles will
prompt them in voting.
The only thing t h e average
Democratic politician sees in
State politiea utho chance touo
an ugly prejudice or transient
condition for advantage. High
conceptions concerning public
welfare or the performance of
official daties do not sorioual.v en

There is a vast difference be
tween a house and a home. The
house is but the buildisg and
furniture, the outward shelter
anc gathering place of the bouse
hold. The home includes kindlj
family affection, the thoughtful
care and ready sympathy and
mutual cor tide nee and trust of
the members. A true home
breathes the atmosphere of love.
A child should be made to feel
that Ida home is in d wed a, home,
the happiest place in the werld
to him, not merely au outward
shelter and restirg place, but a
center of i j ment by love, the
thought and remembrance of
which shall be th- safeguard of
his life as he govt forth to the
world, giving strength and pro
portion to his character, and
turning his thought to all that
may prepare for the heavenly
home when the scenes of earth
shall have passed away. Ex-

The senior senator from Mis

he read that Governor Had ley
had questioned the honesty of
his nomination after the ballots
counted for him bad been burn

ballots had not been burned he
became decided! crab id and
ever since has been imitating the

Wiliianj had just returned from
college, resphntUnt in pec-top
trousers, silk himiery, fancy
waist-coal and a necktie that
spoke for itself. He entered the
library where h i s father was
reading. The old Kentlhman
looked up and surveyed his eon.
Thu longer be looked the more
disgustod he became.
"Son," he tiually blurtadout,
" you look like a d d fool'.'
Later the Major who li ted next
door came in and greeted the boy
heartily. "William," h k i d
with undisguised admiration,
"you look exactly like your fath
er did twenty the year ago when
bu came back from school."

last Noember, when tle-re

another attack upon Governor
Hadley raed upon what he
characterized as the extrava
gances of his administration.
The Governor treated with in
difference theae charges, but
when he went into the Six'h dis
trict and found Senator Stone
had preceded him, repeating the
charges of extravagance the
Goternor remarked tkat he wis.li
ed that the distinguished Senator
waa an issue in the campaign, as
he would then feel more certain
of the results. And he also add
ed that he did not regard the re
sult of the last election as an
honest expression of the opinio!
of the people of Missouri, a lit:
did not believe the votes in tie
senatorial primary had b e e n
hontstly counted. Senator
Stone then demanded that G -v

When Senator Stone thought
the ballots had been destroyed

and thus prots the honesty of hi
nomination, n o longer exit-d.
ha Governor Hadley advised
him that the ballots were in ex
istence and asked him and Gov
ernor Folk to consent to re
count, the Senator refused hw
consent on the w rounds that it
would be unconstitutional to re
count the ballots. Stone has
thus made himself the lauhm

forty five bushels, with a net pro
