Beated reports coming in from Tuesday's elections indicate that in many sections the people are voting great ly in the majority for a return of at least 4 per cent. beer. In effete Boston tabulated returns show that every ward in Boston voted in favor of instructing state sena tors and representatives to vote for the manufacture and rale of the beverage. The city vote was 60,118 in favor r.nd 2lJ.:343 against the proposition. Western Massachusetts voted heavily in favor of the Treasure, with the result that many senators and repre sentatives who have been advocates of prohibition are now instructed to vote for four per cent beer. Quincy, a strong-hold of prohibition for the past twenty-four years, voted for the proposition, as did Brookline, another dry section. Melrose, alone of the greater Boston communi ties, voted against the four per cent plan. The result in Kentucky is even more surprising. Re turns received from twenty-nine counties show that twenty-two registered majorities for the amendment. But the seven that voted against the amendment offset the ma jority of the drys in the other twenty-two counties by a total of 24.853. Leaders of the wet forces expect to hear that Lexington, Paducah, Henderson, Hopkinsville, Frank fort and Owensboro will give large majorities against the amendment and that it will be impossible for the drys lr. the rural sections to turn the tide in favor of the amend l ient. The vote on the amendment is one ot tne cmel surprises of the campaign, as both political parties lavor c ! prohibition platforms and with prohibition more or less a reality. t " (i;-.'a i.mnlote and incomplete returns from t'.iirty-nir "'it '- l eser. the s received the eightv-eight counties, and rep- H.i-tly more than one-third of the precincts in ,un.J a: tr.e office of Secretary of State Smith ,v.t' . t..v ivu. ...uhibitiwn giving wet majorities linn to iVJ.OOO. nii.-vstarv of states otnee pointeu ol nil f the strong wet strongnoio. hove figures by complete votes while the rural counties, tne are yet to be hear Since cicte.i f Are you wearing a Red Cross button today, or are vou too ruch or too poor to join the Red Crss ?

Thank God, there are few in the United States, so poor as that. There are few, whose penury is such that they cannot become a member of the greatest organiza tion in all the world. And for those who cannot spare the dollar, and there are some few who are not able, there is the good word that may be said, the good wish that may be given, the prayer that may be offered for the success of the Red Cross Roll Call. God pity the man who is too poor to Bay a word, to offer a prayer, or to give a dollar for the Red Cross. And WEDDING RINGS AND CUPID STEPPED IN WHEN MARS STEPPED OUT.
