The unqualified satisfaction
which is being expressed in con

the defeat of La Follett's candi

Over 228,009 people attended
the late Minnesota state fair. At
fifty cents per admission it is easy
ts see that the fair was able to
handle considerable money. It
is also interesting to note that
the Minnesota fair sponges its
advertising off the newspapers
just the same as they do out here.

every team it mei in four states.
But at the last of the season it
met the Wagner team and by a
turn of fortune lost the game.
Then the Wagner people on the
strength of that victory claimed

Brookings had defeated. But
her glory did not last long for

Wagner had been defeated by
them and now corner Gayville

and shows how much can be prov

Maine held her general election
Monday and though the republi
can governor and congressmen
were all re-elected it is by such
reduced majorities that the party
leaders may well view the situa
tion with alarm. When Maine
becomes lukewarm in its repub
licanism something is the matter.
The Herald has all along main
tained that the republicrn party
was suffering from too much pros
perity and the Maine election is
another evidence. There are
many republican leaders high up
in the councils of the party who
are looked upon as the represent
atives of weathy interests and
the defenders of corporate rapac
ity. Unless these men are de
posed or change their allegiance
they will certainly bring their
party to defeat. Probably Roose
velt could carry Maine today with
his old time majority.
The reduction of Congressman
Littlefield's majority in Maine
and the defeat of Congressman
Otjen in Wisconsin by the activ
ity of Union Labor is the first
evidence of the activity of Union
men in politics The Unions are
entering upon an important epoch
in their career and if they are to
be successful they will have to
show that tqey arer working for

that they are takihg an active in

The First of Them Was One of fh*
World'* Seven Wonders.
The first lighthouse of which there is
any record In history was built by
Ptolemy Phlladelphus about 306 B. C.
It was a tower on which wood fire*
were kept blazing at night. It was
built'oil Pharos, a small island in th«
bay of Alexandria, and was one of the
seven, wonders of the world. It Is an
Interesting fact that the modern French
and Spanish names for lighthouse—the
one being phare, the other faro—still
preserve the memory of the ialtJid
where the first attempt at sencoast 11*
lumination was located. The ruined
tower in Dover castle, England, erect
ed about A. D. 44, is claimed by some
authorities to have been built for a
lighthouse, upon which an enormous
wood fire was kept burning.
-Tbfe lighthouse on the southern end
of the island of Conanicut, at the
mouth of Narragansett bay, is said to
be the oldest in the United States. The
present structure is comparatively
modern, but the first one was erected
In 1750, and for nearly 100 years pre
vious a watchtower.v with a beacon
fire, had existed at the same point
The lighthouse bears the odd name
of Beaver Tail. The southern portion
of Conanicut island is shaped something
like a beaver, with its tail pointing
southward, and in early, times it was
known by that name, the two extremi
ties. being called head and taiL

In tlie Pillory.
The picturesque, but most painful,
punishment known as the "pillory" has
long been a thing of the past in Eng
land. A man was made to stand in a
frame on a platform, probably with
head and hands fastened through
holes in picces of wood that were then
padlocked to keep them firm, and thus
to remain at stated periods while the
crowd gaped at or even pelted him.
The last time known that a man was
pilloried w:i.i when Peter James Bossy
was punished for perjury, June 22,

There is nothing in Belgium, not
even a marriage, to which so much

if such ceremony can be prevented.
When a death occurs crape is not
hung upon the door, but a notice is
lent to all friends and relatives.

why there are no old time grave

The Spider's Spinning Machine.
The "spineret" or web machine
of the common garden spider is an
object worthy of the careful study
of every owner of a microscope. It
consists of four united masses, each
pierced by a multitude of holes, the
openings being imperceptible to the
(naked eye. These several holes
ieach permit the passage of a single
thread. Some idea of the infinitesi
mal fineness of these threads may
be gained when it is known tlvit the
Bpider's thread as we see it is made
tip of upward of 4,000 minute webs,
|l,000 from each of the four spin
ieret masses. These 4,000 sep&^te
[threads unite at the main opening
of the spineret, making the single
filament from which the spider
spins its web.
