It is characteristic of the easy going south, this wag

later will have to be done. It is usually later, so we
always put it off until later.
Perhaps this is due to the seasons themselves.

THE OHIO ENIGMA.'
It is to be hoped Chin voteis know where they are
at and what they mean. People outside the Buckeye
State, however, have a difficulty in arriving at any defin
ite conclusion as to what the recent election in that StatJ
m cans, for while National Prohibition was defeated by
a maioritv of 542 there was a "dry" majority of 29,662
arainst the nr
plained, however, by any one who has ever tasted mat
kmd of stuff as a natural result. It is almost incon
ceivable that any one really likes that kind of beer. It
is a sham anil a delusion.
But this explanation becomes doubtful when we find
that the proposal to repeal State Piohibition was defeat
ed by a 'V.ry" majority of 41.8 40. So another supposi
tion is usrested that while Ohio is opposed to Federal
I inhibition and 2.75 beer it is in favor of the State va
riety, an explanation that seems to classify Ohio as will
ing to be "dry.' I.ut it must be in its own way. But even
this explanation does not explain, as on looking at the
ote in mr.-.;d to the Crabbe State Prohibition Enforce
ment Act we fin dit was defeated by a "wet" majority of
2(!,8:;8, from which it may be inferred that Ohio is in fa
vor of State Prohibition but "agin" its enforcement, which,
after all, may le a reasonable explanation. Ohio may
want the kind of Prohibition Maine enjoyed for many
years;, when the State got the credit for being more vir
tuous than its neighbors while its citizens of the thirsty
variety were also able to quench their thirst, but in a
or less roundabout way. But as to 1-ederal iroiii-
"PUSSYFOOT" JOHNSON SCORES.
The London medical students who on Thursday draggj
ed "Pussyfoot" Johnson, the temperance strategist, from
a Prohibition meeting and bore him through the streets
on a plank, with opprobrious remarks and banners of pro
test against all promoters of thirst, must have wondered
next day who had the better of it. We can teU them,
it was not the students.
Mr. Johnson seemed to take his medicine calmly, and
when seen in hospital afterward said that except for an
injury to one eye he had "thoroughly enjoyed it." Of
course the hurt eye was a nuisance; it "was blinded and

MILLION DOLLAR LIVE STOCK SHOW.
The Times-Union declares editorially this morning
that the iive stock exhibited at the state fair will be val
ued at a million or more dollars. If the figures are cor
rect it is sale to say chat never before in the history of
ti e .-oath has suJi a collection of pure bred stock been
biought together fur exhibition.
During the big exposition in Charleston in 1902 it
was ti e m.a,t of the management that this was the lar
gest exhibit, of live stock ever assembled. The total val
ve was about a quarter of a million dollars. George
Weston, manager of the Vanderbilt fanns and Biltmore,
was director of the department, and J. L. Shropshire, live
stock director of the Kenluiky State Fair, was his assis
tant. Tie two men worked for month to secure this
exhibit. And it was .-plcndid.
But the exhibit at Charleston came from all sections

KEEPING ABREAST OF THE TIMES.
There are 21, C04 newspapers and periodicals in the
I nited States now, as compared with 7,!)lti in 1S94, and
,. numiier continues to grow. Half of all the paper
-; educed ill the world is used in this country, though we
i ave but one- fifteenth of the world's population. To
e.id even an intinitismal part of the current literature
I hut especially applies to one is a strain. lareiui rear.
.ng of one or two newspapers will occupy an entire eve
ning. To peruse the entire contents of one of the lar
.est five-cent weeklies would take four or five evenings.
To keep abreast of the times to make one-self fa
miliar with the latest developments in literature, art, the
drama, science, politics and the other fields in which wide
awake persons are interested is well nigh impossible.
'I he average person does not have the time. The best
that can be done is to read a newspaper or two with rea
sonable care, skim the cream of a few magazines, and at
ii.frenucnt intervals peruse a book.
This condition has made it possible lor some gins
associated with the University of Chicago to establish a
business which promises to be profitable as well as pleas
ant, since it fills a long-felt want. They read the most
important publications and interview the college profes
sors, and then issue a brief weekly review of the. world
of literature, art, drama, music and politics for the ben
efit principally of society women. Their clients, thus
fortified, can discuss these subjects much more intelli-
gently, at their dinners and cluD meetings, man u iney
did not have this service.
A good rule is to try to know something about every
thing, and everything about something. Of course jie
entails a struggle. But to have widely diversified knov
edge, however scanty, makes life more interesting; while
the possession of sufficient information on any subject

n that direction, and, is sure, sooner or later, to win one
recognition as being worthy of attention.
