Through an oversight last
week the account of A. H. T. A.
day omitted to report the pres
ence or a deleeation of "Equal
Suffrage" ladies, who addressed
a large audience of men and wo
men in front of the banks, from
a motor car in which they had
arrived. Their arguments were
most convincing and were highly
appreciated. At the National
election on Nov. 5, the men of
Kansas will decide whether wo
men shall in the future, have a
voice in state 'and national af
fairs. As so many states already
have given the ballot to women,
and others are just on the point
of doing so, it is to be hoped that
Kansas will keep up her reputa
tion of being in the forefront of
every good cause.

At this time it is apparent to
all parties, except, of course, fel
lows who are so party prejudiced
that they cannot see otherwise,
that the Democrats are fitting
to "take home the bacon" all
along the line this year. The
Republicans are badly split up
with stand patism, progressiveism
and damphoolism, and a lot of
other isms, and they just can't
get together. It is only a ques
tion of maioritv in every pre
cinct and road district in the
United States. It would perhaps
be mst as well if it was not so
one-sided, but this does not alter
the fact that it is. We believe,
as does almost everybody else,
that the Democrats will elect
to everv county office, and will
not be one bit surprised if they
win practically every office in the
United States. One thing is
sure they have a clean bunch

Last Saturday night while at
tending church at Blue Mound,
Valley Stoskopf of Blue Monnd
Lodge, and Herb Paxson of Stow-
ell Lodge, had some property
stolen. Valley lost a lap robe
and Herb a horse blanket Ser
eral members of the Antis from
both the Stowell and Blue Mound
lodges were present at church,
and they at once took the trail,
the net result was that Carl
Gammon, a boy living half a
mile south of Keelville, and
Arthur Evans of Keelville, were
arrested. The Gammon boy con
fessed to taking the property,
and the Evans boy says he helped.
The boys were taken before Jus
tice W. D. Jarrett of Melrose,
who assessed a fine of $10 and.
costs against each of them. The
fines were paid; and the boys
have had a lesson which we hope
will be for their good.

good, but dragging seems to
be the only way to keep a Toad
in good condition, where it is
not possible to gravel it.
What used to be one of the
worst pieces of dirt road in Cher
okee county is now the best. We
refer to a piece of road about two
miles long leading south from
the southwest corner of Colum
bus.. The road has been graded
in a nice manner, and it is kept
dragged. Driving over that road
is much like driving on' a paved
street. We wish everybody in
