Why Mr. Scott Should be Elected.
Hon. George A. Cooke, the well
km;wn able lawyer of Mercer
cniin;,.. who was a member of the
state legislature when the Carter
grr-mander was enacted, has been
interviewed on the supreme judicial
campaign. Mr. Cooke says: "I believe
with the Chicago Tribune that 'the of-,
U N t (lBEO
fice to be filled is not a political or
administrative one, and voters should
not be influenced by party affiliations
in the selection of a judge.' Mr.
Scott is a lawyer of unusual nbility
and is recognized as one of the ablest
members of the bar in the state. He
is a man of integrity and character,
broad minded, cultured gentleman.
He is in every way qualified to fill the
high office with credit tft himself and
honor to the state.
Judge Carter, by reason of having
gerrymandered the district whereby
the voters of two counties nre prac
tically disfranchised, und thf voters
of other counties are permitted to
vote for two judges of-the supreme
court for practically the fame peri
od; and by having resorted to snap
conventions to insure his rcnomina-
tion, all to subserve his own interests.
has dragged the office of supreme
judge, which should be nonpartisan.
through the mire of the cheapest kind
of politics and has forfeited the right
to expect the vote of any citizen who
believes in representative govern
ment. "I do not believe the "people of this
district will approve of any man of
any party using such means to retain
a ,:isat on oursjtpreiue .bench." and
therefore expect to' see- M r. Scott
elected supreme judge."

DAILY SHORT STORY
The Count De Tourinne.
Harvey Rathbone, being very rich.
"took life easy. After several years
epent at the University of Heidelberg
the married the girl of his choice, and
the next few years were spent by the
couple wherever they could derive the
most pleasure. One winter they took a
house in Pari.
ltathltone had always had implicit
confidence in his wife tLU jealousy set
tled itself upon him through a vury
singular cause. Returning to his homo
late one evening when his wife wns in
bed, he entered an adjoining chuinber
in which a light was turned low and
saw a man in evening dress advancing
to meet him. .In a twinkling there
came a revelation of infidelity on the
part of his wife. He was about to
spring forward to grasp the man by
the throat when he discovered that he
was lookiug at his own image in a mir
ror. He took off his clothes and
crawled into bed, but not to -sleep.
Suppose his wife, whom all the men
admired, should thus dishonor him!
The idea, having taken root, grew and
expanded until it monopolized the prin
cipal part of his brain.
The time came when something more
than a reflection confronted him. One
evening when he desired to go to the
opera his wife asked to be excused
from accompanying him on the ground
of feeling indisposed. Since the piece
was a favorite with him he concluded
to go alone. He heard little of the mu
sic, however, for an idea got into his
head that his wife's Indisposition was
merely a subterfuge. However, he'saw
the opera through, then, joining some
friends, went to supper at a cafe,
bout 1 o'clock he went home, let him
self hi with his night key, and was
abont to go up stairs when he saw a
man standing- on the stairs. lie had
been coming down when Rathbone en
tered and stopped.
Itathbone staggered under the load
of horror that had suddenly come upon
"Stand where you are!" he said as
soon as he could get his voice. "Give
me time to think. My wife's name must
not be brought into this affair. We
must find some other pretext."
"Go to your club," said the man.
and say that you caught the Count de
Tourinne cheating at cards. You chal
lenged him and will fight him at day
light in the morning."
"The Count do Tourinne!"
"By my indiscretion my family, one
of the oldest in France, must suffer
the only stigma ever put upon it. But
it is better thus than that your wife's
reputation should suffer."
It will not matter. I will put you
where only the worms will iuterest
The count advanced, took a can!
from his pocket, threw it on a table
and walked out of the front door.
Itathbone went Into the drawing room
and, falling on a divan, buried his face
In the cushions. Half an hour later he
went to Ids club, where he met Spencer
Hunt, a Heidelberg chum, whom he
told that the Count de Tourinne had
cheated him at cards and a challenge
Go," he concluded, "to the address
on the card and arrange the details of
"I am surprised beyond measure,
said Hunt, "that Tourinne should have
done such a thing. I inn not personally
acquainted with him, but his standing
both socially and as a man of honor
is the highest. Is not this a pretext
to cover the real cause of your quar
"Hunt, as yon value my friendship
ask no questions. Arrange the affair
to be fought out till either I or the
count is killed or mortally wounded.
Go at once."
Itathbone paced back and forth in
the hall of the club, waiting. Men were
coming and going, occasionally castin
a glance at him, wondering what was
the matter with him. Fortunately for
Itathbone, he had been so devoted n
husband that he had not frequented
the club and knew only a few of the
members. For an hour he paced, then.
suddenly looking up, saw Hunt coining
in at the door accompanied by an aris
tocratlc looking gentleman. Both ap
proached ItathlKine, the accompanying
man glaring at him.
"Is this the man whom you accused
of cheating at cards?" asked Hunt.
"Count, this Is my friend Harvey
Rathbone. The Count de Tourinne,
Harvey. There is some mistake."
The count, mollified, asked for an ac
count of the affair and a description of
the person who had been personating
him, then returned to his home.
Itathbone was worn out with excite
ment and the load lie bore and did not
know what to do. Hunt took hiin by
the arm and led him to the Place de
la Concorde and thence up the Champs
Elysees. There they walked and
talked till the sun stood high in the
sky. Then Hunt decided to take his
friend home to face an Investigation.
When the front door opened Mrs.
Rathbone threw himself into her hus
band's arms, hysterically exclaiming:
"Oh, Harvey, where have you been?
The house has been entered and all my
The two men darted glances at each
other full of meaning. It was plain
that a thief had played a pretty game
and effected his escape.
"Thank God!" exclaimed Rathbone.
"What do you mean?" cried the wife.
"Why, my dear, I mean the fact is
I have news of the winning of a suit
at home by which I will acquire quite
enough to replace your Jewels. Let us

police and the thief secured. He had
