There. has been miles of ft
written about s-walting the fly,

never a line has. been written

as we know, to eradicate the bed

sIt does not argue well for the
civilizition of a people when
some foul-mouthed politician
sneers at Christianity, to hear
the howling mass cheer him.
We are hardly civilized yet,
much less Christianized. Let

better conditions after the next
election. "So moteit be. Amen."
The old-line Republicans in
congress have had their own way
so long about ,getting all of the
good things in the way of ap
propriations for the Republican'
states that it breaks theirhearts
whenever a state in the "solid
south" gets a small slice of
Uncle Sam's pie. Turn about
is fatir play. The' pie is -being
passed south just now.
When a revolution fails the
revolters are, called rebels and
renegades, but if the uprising
succeeds they are acclaimed pat
riots. A year-ago Villa was de
scribed as a bloodthirsty rebel
and bandit, while today he is
proclaimed by s o me as the
"George Washington of M e x
ico." Huerta, of course, having
lost out, still retains the title of
murderer and assassin. There
fore, it is plain that "nothing
succeeds like success."
A traveling man, who was in
Pickens at the senatorial speak

tended many similar meetings
in many states, but this was the
first one where the candidates
for United States senator spoke
n every subject save that of
national politics. Senators, he
said, are supposed to have the
interest of the whole country at
heart-niot any one state. He
said he heard not a word about
the things that are of interest to
the whole people: that none of
the candidates spoke of whether
or not they would support the
President in his endeavors to
give the people~ justice or were
opposed to the national admin
istration: that the voters do not
know where the candidates for
one of the greatest offices in the
gift of the people stand on these
important questions. He thinks

The "'Aftermath" man in the
Columbia State has a silhouette
