OFFICIAL COUNTY PAPER Saturday, Jan. 6, 1912 Affairs at Washington World Correspondence Washington, D. C, Jan. 1. Mr. Adolph Wischan of the Census Bureau, has an. accumu lation of knowledge about print- ;nr anfl nnhlishiner that puts the people who handle the director ies and run the big publishing houses in class "Z". If Mr. Wischan could tell half he knows there would be an army of cir nintinn liars leavine city offices temporarily to lead what Mrs the pi-faced is a campaign coming. Colonel Roosevelt complains that people are afraid to go to see him, for fear of "being com- rpmised in matters of politics," which goes to prove that in the affairs of the nation, and in great Gotham human nature paddles its course just about the same as at Squashville Castle, where factional jealously is no more in evidence in the "school deestricts" than in the places of power when' ' presidents and rulers are made and unmade. In the Capital itself there is always this fear of making calls on certain public men for fear of "being compromised." Poor old Ohio, the home of Presidents, is having a hard time of it. Besides being the home of Taft, it also has Governor Harmon to push as a presidential candidate as though these two burdens were not enough there are the difficulties of the Gar- fieldites and about all the other ites going. The Buckeyeites have also listened to Senator La- Follette, who has invaded the state and added to the joy and confusion of political knowledge umo seems to oe trie storm cen ter .of the political cyclone, and this rush of politicians to it in co;..fjj:.:entaby to the japanese Possess Traits That Ire a Wor thy Example. TJoton Sinclair and uoetof Kansas call the "spirit- dicate that all classes ofpaity Qi ovwtonw" wav off where leaders are eager to be on hand other people don't wander. The when the rainbow comes up, in retiort bv Mr. Wischan, in nopes tnac tne pot of gold may charge of compiling these statis tics at the census bereau, has just appeared and shows that nrintmtr and publishing is no mean industry. There were 31, 44. nrintincr establishments of all kinds in the United States in 1909.J and materials valued at $201,775,000 were used; 358,042 persons were engaged in the in dustry during that year Now that Senator LaPollette is afield promoting his candidacy for the Presidency, Republican supporters of the administration are vociferously declaring that President Taft will have a walk over at the Chicage convention This may, or may not be a fact, and most interested persons be ing prejudiced one way or an other, are ant to figure the ulti mate result to suit the exigen cies of their own minds, it is, however, very apparent, that aside from the Presidential trip of the country and the results that may have been in the pro gressive carrm so far. 1 h e National organizations evidently are depending upon the different states to fight out their own des tiny and the first results of this policy of inaction have just been counted in Arizona, where there has been a Democratic landslide The Democratic House of Rep resentatives is not going to start tariff legislation with schedule K as was expected, and Mr, Underwood, chairman of the Ways and Means Committee, announced an entire different schedule, and puts well along -after a revision of the iron and steel schedule, and chemicals and sugar. The Democrats in taking up thess- measures so hurriedly, are no doubt trying to forestall the tariff board, and enact some of their laws that will put the President in a hole, a popular diversion instituted last' summer, when Mr. Taft climbed out the holes and plug 1 ged them up with vetoes. Mr. ; Underwood is the real power of -- the house, and it will be remem- bered talked back to William Jennings Bryan like a Dutch uncle a few months ago. His plan is to try and riddle the re port of the tariff board on wool, before the revision is attempted and to show by comparison, if rjossible. that the House bill of the special session was really more scientific than one can be prepared by aid of the Tariff Board data. It is a part of the attemot to make Democratic camoai&rn material and to dis credit administration efforts, and the Tariff Board is to oe made- the "goat, nowithstanding be theirs. ine iresident gave mm sell a Christmas treat by eluding his two constant guards, and for the first time since he became Pres ident he walked through Wash ington streets without being fol lowed by secret service men. Mr. and Mrs. Taft went calling on friends on Christmas dav. and when it was discovered that they had both eluded Mr. Wil- kie's men there was consider able consternation about the White House. ine JNew jersey mosquito is losing his prestige, as according to the Consul at Dawson, the Klondike has . the longest billed and most savage skeeters in ex istence,"1 and the worst of it is according to the consul, "it is im possible to destroy them, as they propogate in the heavy moss that grows here, whieb contains moisture almost equal to swamp lands. It has been determined that the mosquito is more -num erous in the Artie Zone than in the tropics, though there is no land too hot or too cold for its habitation. Indications are that the old and established Lorimer investi gation will maintain its prestige as the most spectacular of all such shows, notwithstanding the intrusion of the probers of the trusts, and the investigators of government departments. For real fuel for the yellow journal ists and the spreading of red printer's ink, it is safe to say that the case of the Illinois sen ator will not be outclassed by the spurious imitations that have sought to become real in vestigations.

Verbeck Lumber & Supply Company Wt-Keimy, Ksn .a Paster Russell Compliment Japs for Gentleness and Kind Demeanor, and Wishes He Could Do the Same For Christendom Discourse on the Im portance of the Will and a Proper Choice at the Beginning of the Year. Toklo, Japan, December 31st. The International Bible Students Committee of sev en, for the investi gation of Foreign Missions, is bere. Pastor Russell, the Chairman of the Committee, gave two public ad dresses In ore of our principal audi toriums, the T. M. C. A." He had large audiences and keenest attention. His text was from Joshua xxir. 15. "Choose ye this day bom ye will serve." He said: In our day the human will, although still ambitious and avaricious, has taken a higher plane for its exercise than in the days of ' Alexander the Great and Napoleon. It is rather em ployed in the conquering of mountains and valleys, in the casting up of high wavs and piercing of tunnels: in the erection of bridges and the master pieces of mechanical enginery which traverse the land and the sea with al most incredible speed. The Will's Greatest Achievement. But. said the Pastor, the most won derful achievement of the will is seen In self-control. The Scriptures say tru ly. "Greater is be that ruleth bis own will than be that captures a city. i Proverbs xvi. 32.1 The most wonder ful illustrations of the will thus exer cised be believes are to be found in the case of Jesus and His footstep fol lowers. By the exercise of His will Jesus surrendered His glorious condi tion for the human estate and then de livered np Himself, as the Man Christ Jesus, to the doing of the Divine will. even unto death, that thus "by the grace of God He might taste death for every man." (Hebrews 11, 9. The motive behind that strong will was not selfishness, but love. Compliments the Japanese. When I note the gentleness and kindness and courtesy of Japanese life in general. 1 am astonished and won der little that the ordinary Christian message has not appealed more to your hearts and displaced Shinto wor ship, for which I understand you have two hundred thousand figures, temples. Sympathetically putting myself in the place of the Japanese. 1 fancy you say ing. Shall 'we exchange our simple, esthetic gentleness anu kindness of spirit for the rudeness and sometimes swagger of the soldiers and sailors, and the domineering beadiness of the upper classes who come to us? Sympatheticr Ay. again 1 hear you say. The missionaries who have ex pounded Christianity to us for years have told us that our parents ana an cestors whom we reverently worship are despised by your Christian God. and are damned to an eternity of tor ture because they did not know Jesus and become His followers. They tell us. additionally, that we also are bound for that place of eternal horror ana torture unless we repudiate the religion of our birth which has made us so happy and contented. Can yon won der that we resent such teaching: that we merely tolerate it to avoid war: that we prefer Buddhism and isninto ism. and that our Shinto temples in crease the more rapidly because of an tagonism to Christianity? Heathen Ancestry Not Roasting. Alas, my dear bearers. Christianity with very precious truths at its roup dation, seriously lost Its way long centuries ago and wandered far from the inspired teachings of the Bible. This Is the. explanation of the numer ous sects and parties of Christendom and the different doctrines, none of which I am here to defend either from the standpoint nf reason r the Bible. ' ,The Bible does not leach, as onw yon supposed, that eternal torment Is the penalty for oar first parents' dis obedience in the eating of the forbid den fruit. Cut -tae contrary, it teaches that "the wages of sin la death." and that this death wage haa been the ex perience of our entire race for now six thousand years. It teaches that In God's due time this curse or sentence of death will be lifted ana tnat row and sighing shall flee away. . It teaches that the whole earth shall become Paradise Restored world-wide. and that those who. when fully In formed, shall d refer sin. will be ut terly, completely and everlastingly de stroyed, in the "Second Death." So then, my friends, if from 8hln totem yon have learned to be esthetic in your tastes, kind and gentle in your manner and loyal these lessons learn ed will be to yon a great advantage la that future time of blessing under Messiah's Kingdom. On the other hand, whoever has cultivated a con trary spirit will be correspondingly de Draved and will correspondingly have the more and severer lessons to learn. Take heart then today from the as surance of the good time coming, and that every grace of character that has been acquired by you. either through Shintoism or otherwise. Is not lost, but should be maintained. THE FORD MODEL T CAR COSTS you less than any other four-cylinder car in the world because it is simpliest in design and built in greatest numbers 75,000 will be manufactured for 1912., Abraham Lincoln's speeches were strong through sheer simplicity and plainness. Every word he put into his talks said something. He left out all the frills and fancy phases. Same with Ford Motor Cars. Everything but essential parts is banished. That accounts in large measure for the unique efficiency of the Ford and for its low cost of up-keep afterwards. The. more you put into an automobile the more it costs. But the less effi cient the car really becomes. That added material must be paid for by the buyer; the buyer also has to pay for the labor of handling, assembling and adjusting the unecessary parts. And later he must pay repair bills on those useless parts which had no business on the car at all. Therefore, , the simple FORD with far fewer parts than any 4-cylinder automobile stands out as the BEST automobile. Just as we have succeeded in getting the FORD MODEL T simplier and lighter, so we have approached automobile perfection. These are the two great essentials for motor car efficiency. A car can't be a practical car to all the people if it isn't simple in design and it can't be of economical, main tenance if it isn't light, s Now for $690 you can get a FORD MODEL T Touring Car, fully equipped even to the speedometer and windshield. For $590 you can buy a FORD MODEL T Commercial Roadster, also equipped to the last detail, and for $590 you can buy the FORD MODEL T Torpedo. Same model of chassis for all bodies. These prices result from simplicity, the light weight made -possible by Vanadium steel, and enormous production in the world's most efficient automobile factory. The FORD MODEL T does the work. That's all there is to it. The car made it's own way; it took its place right from the start as a commodity of commerce; a car of usefulness; an investment; a dividend payer, not a plaything.
