Hays was received at Republican Headquarters in Augusta, and as far as the State election is con cerned it tells the whole story. •To Frank.! Ham, Augusta, Me. Con gratulations a thousand times. When we consider it is the first time a Gover nor has been reelected in twenty years, in Maine, by either party and when we consider that the Second District was Democratic in 1912 and 1"14 and carried by White by only 500 in Sept. 1916 and then carried by the Democrats in Nov. 1916 bv over J200, and row Republican by nearly 3000, and when we consider the splendid majority of Senator Fernald and the other congressmen, all tremen dous for an off year, we get an idea of the extent of your success. It means much for the party and the consequent, good of the country which is the first consideration of us all."—Vi ILL H. Hays. The Democratic campaign had no logi cs foundation. It was built upon the sands of sophistry and misrepresentation. The wise and able Democrats of the State did not. believe in this and held themselves aloof. The statement that in order lo support the President one must vote the Democratic ticket was too ridiculous to catch the.intelligent voter At this writ ing it seems that Governor Milliken has about 8000 majority, tnat Senator Fernald has about 13.000, that every county but one has been carried by the Republicans, that the Senate will be made up of 28 Republ - ans and 3 Democrats, and that the next House of Representatives will contain about 100 Republicans and 51 Democrats. It lias been a sweeping Re publican victory and our county returns, printed :n this issue of the Journal, shows that, all things considered, Waldo is the banner Republican county of the State.

Children Cry FOR FLETCHER S CAS T ORIA Invest Your Money Where You Can Watch It < THE HOME investment is best. When , you buy stock in a home company you KNOW where you are putting your money. You can be sure that every cent is spent to , add to the physical property of the company 1 and to add to its ability to pay dividends on . your stock. You can know that it is being handled by responsible men. The fact that the Central Maine Power Company preferred stock is issued by a home industry makes it a particularly attractive in vestment for Maine People. Company was: Organized by Maine Men Is Managed by Maine Men Largely Owned in Maine You can personally inspect the property of the company. You can meet the men who manage the property. You can go to your local office and make any inquiries about J:he stock or about the company—now or at any time. Is not this the sort of safe home invest ment you want—especially when it pays you 61-2% net? 1 Central Maine Power Co. (of which the Penobscot Bay Electric Company is a part.)
