LA FOLLETTE'S POSITION. "In no partisan spirit, 1 repeat that the progressive movement be gau within the republican party. It rapidly advanced its control, shaping the policies of state administrations and stamping its impressions upon national legislation as a distinctly progressive republican movement, and upon this fact in recent political history I appeal to progressive re publicans everywhere to mainlaiu their organization within the repub lican party. To maintain such an or ganization, blind allegiance to every party nomination and to every party declaration is not essential." —Hobt. M. La Follette. In this vicinity there are thousands of acres already sown io turkey red winter wheat. This crop was put in in August, after the ground had bien properly prepared. In fact it is be lieved tiiat this year's crop generally is the first one that has been put iu properly since this lias become a farm ing section. There has been an abun dance of rainfall since the crop was aown, and it is predicted that next year the Judith (lap district will as tonish the world by its big yields oi' winter wheat. The dollar subscriptions to the democratic campaign fund has prov en a dissappoiutinent. Out of over 3,000.00«) democratic voters in this country only about loo,non dug up a dollar. The national committee tliuls itself considerably short of cash to carry on n campaign anil is alarmed at the pronounced apathy of the dem ocrats everywhere in the success of Woodrow Wilson. The backward ness displayed by the faithful in com ing forward with the coin is indeed deed ominous of coming disaster. There is really no great use in get ting excited over politics. The ma jority of the American people have already made up their minds how they are going to vote nationally. All the talk iu the world would not change them. And there is likely to be some big surprises for the cock sure fellows when the fifth of No vember rolls around. Remember, when you vote for a member of the legislature you are getting into national politics. A member of the legislature will have to vote for a Uuited States senator. Your individual vote may mean the turning of the senate over to the dem ocratic party. Qscar Skeeu is making a very live canvhss for the office of county treas urer and ia meeting with encourage ment wherever he goes. There seems to be no doubt about bis election. The only question is the size of the majority. In his "swing around the circle" Mr. Bryan in all his speeches at tacks Mr. ltoosevelt savagely. It is uoticable that both Mr. Jlryan dent Tuft At nil, express the very kindest regard for him. On the oth er hand we have yet to hear of a prominent republican speaker who displays much of a grouch if Wood row Wilson is mentioned. Unless these big guns are more guarded in ; their remarks they will force thecoin- ! mon people to conclude that there is 1 some truth in the assertion that the ^ two old parties are virtually one and j and the same thing.—Joliet Iuiepen- ; dent. j WHAT HE DID AS PRESIDENT. (Ahiladelphia North American.) What did Roosevelt do as presi dent? Every day we are requested to print something of his record of achievements. ltoosevelt accom plished more real constructive work as president than any other man who ever was in the White House. Hut his greatest work was his leadership of the nation to new moral standards in busiuess and in public life. Some of the more notable achieve- j niants of President Roosevelt in op- i position to the combined forces of big crooked business and crooked politics are: Dolliver-IIepburn railroad act. Extension of forest reserve. National irrigation act. Improvement of waterways and reservation of water power sites. Employers' liability act. Safety appliance act. Regulation of railroad employers' hours of labor. Establishment of bureau of corpor ations. Pure food and drugs act. Federal meat inspection. Settlement of the coal strike in 1902. The government upheld in Northern Securities decision. Conviction of postotiice grafters and public land thieves. Directed investigation of the sugar trust customs frauds, and the result ant prosecution. Suits begun against the Staudard Oil and Tobacco companies and other corporations for violation of the Sherman anti-trust act. Corporations forbidden to contrib ute to political campaign funds. Inauguration of movement for con servation of natural resources. Inauguration of movement for im provement of conditions of country life. The Panama policy and action which made possible the most colos sal work of all time.

Among his achieve ments in that line were: Second intervention in Cuba to es tablish peace. Alaska boundary dispute settled. China saved from partition uudpol iey of open door established. Twenty-four treaties of general ar bitration negotiated. Negotiations opened by which Rus so Japanese war was euded Avoidance of bad feeling with Ja pan over exclusion policy.

Income tax. Passage of a new employers' Habil ty act to meet objections raised by the Supreme court. Postal savings banks. Parcel post. Revision of the Sherman anti-trust act. Legislation to prevent overcapital ization, stock watering, etc., of com mon carries. Legislation compelling incorpora tion under federal laws of corpora tions engaged in interstate commerce. : to The Tale of a Dog. Our Flatwillow correspondent is authority for the following dog story and suvs that the facts are all true. W. J. Markland bought a large coon dog with him when he came to this country from Missouri about a year ago. The dog made the trip in a freight car that carried the rest of their goods. He showed no great regret at leaving Missouri as the sup ply of "howndawgs" iu Missouri was away above the demand at that time. Last June the dog came in from Flat willow with some of the boys who came in to seethe Bloomers play ball. Nothing more lias ever been seen of Mr. C. Dog in this section. About a week ago Mr. Markland received a letter from the old place in Missouri stating that the dog had arrived there a few days before, looking rather thin and tired but seemingly glad to be back iu Missouri.—Musselshell Ad vocate. The survey of the new residence ad dition lias been completed, and the plat will be recorded aa soon as ex ecuted by the officers of the townsite company in St. Paul, after which lots will be for sale.

Benjamin McDonald is moving in to his "brand new" home, which has just been completed. Such houses as this new residence is a credit to any neighborhood. Miss Nettie Slieill, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Robert Slieill, and one of (iarneill's popular young ladies, left for Stanford last Saturday, where she will teach school this winter. Miss Sheill is a very earnest and cap able young lady, and it is safe to predict that she will "make good" in the very important profession of teaching. During some of the rainy days Mr. E. W. Hart made some marked ciiauges in the interior of Manley's general store, such as constructing a very cozy otllce, etc., which will add much to the convenience of this en terprising firm. "Grandpa" Wilson is always a familiar person about the town dis pensing good cheer and optimism to all whom he meets. Always ready with a hearty handshake he inspires with courage any who may be des pondent. Mr. Johnson, the efficient agent and operator, has been tryiug to get a few weeks vacation, but is tlnding it quite diflioult, owing to a scarcity of men who are able to handle the work. Ilev. A. J. Armstrong, the Metho dist Episcopal pastor at Henchland, took' the train for that town Satur day and filled his regular appoint ment Sunday. The opening of the game season has begotten no little enthusiastic antici pation among the many would-be hunters. The purchase of license and laying of plans is the order of the day..

Senator Luke Lea of Tennessee, apro pos of the operation for transfusion of blood that he ao nobly underwent on his wife's behalf, sai«l at a dinner in Washington: "Latter dny surgery Is a wonderful thing, and I'm sure you won't think me at all disrespectful If I tell you a strange story about it "I have a friend named Jasper, and. meeting him one day last summer. I said: '' 'Jasper, you look, somehow, queer.' •• 'I expect it's my nose,* said he. '1 fell down a coal hole and tore a big piece out of It' " 'Why, your nose seems all right' said I. •• 'Ob, yes.' said Jasper, *lt seems nil right The surgeons, you know, grafted a piece of my arm on it But the shape is changed, and, besides, I can't go to the hall games any more.'

" After tha Roast A tall, urbane man with a black mustache was a guest at a fashion able dinner In New York not long ago when a lady on his right, after men tioning tbut she had just returned from a trip to Europe, proceeded to "roast" William Loeb. Jr., the collec tor of customs for the city. She pan ned that official to a rich dark brown and did it in such a witty manner that the tall, urbane gentleman laugh ed uproarously. "I think the appro priate death for him,'' she said, "would be choking with Irish lace, and I'd like to contribute some of the lace for the purpose." After dinner she aRked her hostess: "What was the name of the black mustached man on my left, dear? He talked so intelligently about the cus tom house." vi should think he would." replied the hostess. "That was Mr. Loeb himself."' _ Savsd His Lifë. "What is the bravest thing you ever did?" General Sherman was ouee ask ed. "Well." lie replied thoughtfully. "I once saved a man's life. It was Joe Jefferson, and I look hack on it with the deepest pride, for It Is something to be proud of to have saved the life of such a man as Jefferson. "It happened like this: We were both paying an afternoon call. Jeffer son had to leave early, and Immedi ately after he had gone I noticed a bundle of papers lying on the floor. I knew JefTerson must have dropped them. I hurried out to the lift after him. hut he had gone by way of the stairs, and. though I shouted: 'Joel Joe!' he didn't hear me. I ran down after him. two steps at a time, and caught him up as he reached the door. " 'Here. Joe.' I gasped, 'you've for gotten something.' "He took the papers and looked at me very gravely.
