It seems another error was made in
the Guymon precinct ticket. Several
of the candidates thought they were
tiling to get on the ballot In precinct 1
and precinct 2. It is a certainty the
candidates could't ge( on in both pre
cincts and thr board probably figured
that precinct 2 would cover tho Guy
mon township ticket, tlgurlng precinct
1 for tho city, as was done a couple of
years ago. What tho Herald hopes to
see come about is a compulsory publi.
cation of the entire 'official ballot for
three weeks in all the county scat pa
pers, as is the law in Kansas. Then, If
the board has made an error, candi
dates have an opportunity to rectify
the same before tho ballots art printed.
We hope the representative from this
county will see to it, whoever ho may
be, that a bill providing for the publi
cation of the state, county and town

and whose lofty principles and superb
devotion to his country are an Inspira

Tho Republican Party looks back
upon its record with pride and satis
faction, and forward to its new respon

achievements in government constitute
the moat luminous pages in our history.
Our greatest national advance has been
made during the years of its ascenden

it has never been either stationary or
reactionary It has gone from tho ful

public need and to tho popular will.
Wu believe in our self-controlled rep

which order is the pre-requisite of pro

The Republican Party is now, as al
ways, a party of advanced and con

these new questions which social, econ

brought Into the forefront of the na

in the nation, but in the soveral States,
to enact the necessary legislation to
safeguard the public health ; to limit
effectively the labor of women and
children, to protect wage-earners en
gaged in dangerous occupations, to en

of the United States rests upon the
civil liberty of the Individual, and for
tho protection of that liberty the peo

State Constitutions, put definite limi

these old settlers can tell, Thoso grass
hoppers would eat anything. My neigh

prided himself on his whiskers. He
had whiskers that measured over four

hoppers took them for a sheaf of wheat
They were a bright, beautiful yellow
colpr and when they waved in the wind
they did resemble wheat that wus
ready fpr the harvest. Well, the grass
hoppers were near-sighted, and they
didn't have discriminating appetites
anyway. They liton Job the Ilrst tiling
