The hold's riion clear when the golden gates of itfi inner .life are clonehj shut upon the out fide world. Victor Oharbonnel. DECORATE FOR THE CARNIVAL. ...JAXUAKY11, 1915. In New York the story has already been told. Davenport, running against Whitman and Glynn, hardly received any attention. In Illi nois the Progressive vote fell off 70 per cent. Senator Beveridge, Progressive, was a poor third in the race for the Indiana senatorship. From a Republican standpoint, the most cheering feature of the Progressive collapse was the simultaneous gain of the Republican party by the same number of votes the Pro gressives lost. It has been shown conclusively that the Bull Moosers have gone back into the Republican fold. Thus in Connecticut the re union of the Republican factions swept the Democrats out of office, elected a Republican governor, senator and five congressmen. In this state, Governor Simeon Yu Baldwin, Democrat, was a candidate for senator against Frank E. Brandegee, Republican, who was run ning for reelection. After his defeat Baldwin said: "The key to the election is very simple. The Progressives of Connecticut got tired of fol lowing the Angaries of Ex-President Roosevelt and most of them returned to the Republican fold, from which they had gone out originally. "I think also that the indictment of more than 20 of the New York, New Haven & Hart ford Company's directors and the labeling as conspirators of a good many highly esteemed citizens of Connecticut who, are in their graves had an unfavorable effect on the Democratic prospects."

' UpTiorta from the war-zone indicate that Servia is in even a wors plight than Belgium Th;s Jittle country of four million people sent to war nearly half of its male' population. Their very success against the Austnans hepped to aggravate the plight of the country because in : addition to their own! disabled soldiers, the Serbs have had to care for tens of thousands of the Vnemy. Hospital and medical Services have been entirely over-taxed, r ooa supplies sre reduced to a minimum. It is declared that hundreds of people are literally starving to death, and f!iat the rate of mortality among: the wounded is appalling a needless mortality if efficient care could be given the soldiers at the time : of being disabled in battle. Never theless, the Serbs have driven the' Austrian from their soil and have carried the campaign liito theenemy cotmtry.s And like Belgium, their courage is costing them dearly. , : l.'f..

EFFICIENCY OF SCHOOLS ill GHER WORT SHOYS Attendance In Second Term of 1914 Shows Increase, Says Superintendent Kinney With considerable elation Superin tendent Henry W. Kinney of the de partment of public instruction ai nounced this morning that the schools of the territory have shown an in creased efficiency of 1 per, cent in the last term over the one preceding. Thi3 is in point of school attendance, and means, in plain terms, that an aver age of 280 more children were in the public schools every day of the last term than were attending them in the second term of the former year. This is despite the inclement weath er which the frequent and heavy storms of the last four months have made the worst season in many yeais. The increased attendance causes no extra expense to the territory, but gives the school children the 'addi tional instruction which they bad not been receiving before. There are approximately 28,000 school -children in the territory. The attendance percentage is 'figured on the basis of those enrolled. If there are 80 pupils in one school and all attended every day of the term the average would be 100 per cent Su perintendent Kinney has worked out the average attendances by islands for the last term and the preceding one, disclosing the following percentages: Oahu .. Kauai . Hawaii Maui .. Molokal General average 1913 94.4 93.7 90.8 86.2 95.1- 92.1 1914. 94.5 95.9 93. 87.6 91.7 93.1 J.
