Statement of Vote Polled
Some of the statisticians "connected
with the State Republican Executive
commltte& have taken the pains to ai
range a comparative statement con
cerning the vote polled at the last elec
tion. Although tbo renort dismays a
v great deal of local pride ou the part
of tuo compilers, it is nevertheless of
general Interest.' It also takes occasion
to throw some bouciuete at the great
ness of General Dick.
J Ohio two weeks ago present some In
teresting features. The total Republi
can vote was 70 more 1n the Btato for
Secretary Laylln than Governor Nash
got last-year, but the lattor's plurality
is 2.300 greater than that for Nash.
The difference Is due to Democrats
who'dld not vote this year. The larg
est Republican vote was 437,868. for
'Klrtley, to? Board of Public Works,
6nly 1,007 more than Layltn. ThQ larg-
eeTetnocratic-vote was that for Bruc)j
fbr 'Dairy and Food Commissioner,
347,607i This Is only 1,801 more than
the vote for Btgelovt', whereas the nntl
Johnson Democrats made a claim that
their strength would give Brack 15,000
y or 20,000 more than Blgelow would
have, beside tho benefit Bruck would
have from the special effort made In
his behalf In various lines of business.
J AFTER MARRIA'GE:
Different Living Affects Some
"I never drank coffee until after I
was married," says a lady from Adalr
"My husband drank coffee and I
L' thought It was nice to drink with him,
and we enjoyed it togetner. Alter a
while I found that my digestive or
gana were disturbed, but not know
ing the cause, I went on drinking
coffee and growing more wretched
In due tlrao three little girls came
to what ought to have been a happy
home, but I was nervous and urn
happy myself and could not make
anyone else happy; to my great con
sternation, two of my little girls had
spasms, and it a nervous -wreck, found
, It Impossible to eat anything that did
b not .hurt 'my afow'acsh. '
,1 finally concluded I had heart dis
ease, njy heart pained me so much
after eating, and my head was so
dizzy, J often thought I would ,fall
when trying to walk across the room.
I tried every medicine I heard of,
apd had different doctors treat me,
but wfth. no benefit. I could not
sleep' halt tho night, and never slept
'sound I -would wake out of a fright
ful dream only to doze and wake
Finally, I read of Postum Food Cof
fee and my husband got a package
from our grocer; I mado some ac
cording to directions. I liked its
flavor very much and the first cup
seemed to help my stomach. I used
It evory -rueal, somotlmes making a
whole meal on Postum and a bit of
I Improved so fast that I could soon
eat anything I wanted. I began to look
so much better my friends were sur
prised and said I looked as well as
when I was first married. I could
sleep as sweetly as a child. Of course
the children quit coffee and drank
Postum and they all began to fatten
and tne spasms stopped.
I wlsli could Impress It on jovery
weak, nervous person to abandon cof
fee and use Postum' CereaJ. If every
nervous person could bavo seen me
in my nervous nfflction from drinking
coffee, and could now see me nnd
my little ones, around tho table" en-
Joying our Postum, they surely would
never indulge in coffee again, for
there Is no more nervous -prostration;
no more headaches; no more spasms,
and I am able to do my own work and
caro for my children." Name riven

CO., NEW YORK,
In spite of all these influences which
centered the fight upon Mr. Ankeny,
he received 80,135 plurality, as com
pared with 00,463 for Laylln at the
head of the ticket.
In fact, the difference In tbe plural
ities for the different candidates on the
Republican State ticket arc not nearly
as wide this year as thoy were In 1001.
Tho range then was from, 07,567 for
Nash for Governor to 84,650 for Price
for Judge of the Supreme Court Lieu
tenant Gpvernor Nlppert's plurality
was 78,450; Treasurer Cameron, 83,170;
Attorney General Sheetp, 80,540; Mem
ber Board of Public. Works Johnson,
82,023; and Clerk of Supreme Court
Emerson, S1.7Q4. These variations
were never equalled in an Ohio election
so that this year's fluctuations are
small hy comparison.
Chairman Diak's, prediction on th,e
election. result proves to -have been very"
conservative. His estimate placed "Mr.
Layllh's probable plurality for Secre
tary of Stato at not Jess than 75,000,
and with as large a Republican vote
as was polled last year our plurality
may reach 100,000." It actually exceed
cd 00,000, while the total vote shows
about tlio same difference, being 811,
467 for Secretary of State" -Instead of a
probable 800,000, which was-Chairman
Dick's estimate In round numbers.
Tho great shrinkage in votes is 22,
810 on Blgelow, heading the Democrat
ic ticket. Tho Prohibition vote in
creased 2,458. The Socialist vote near
ly doubled, It? increase -being 0,881.
Tho Socialist Labor voto fell off 11.
Another of Ohalrnian Dick's predic
tions that was more than made good
was his claljn that Laylln would "car
ry npt fewer than 60 out of tho 88
counties." Tho number the Republi
cans carried for the head of tho ticket
was 02 counties, as against 50 coun
ties last year, and 61 for McKInley.
Clermont county Republican by 11,
Pike by 65, and Tuscarawas by 167,
were the small6st Republican plurali
ties, Henry oy 0, Highland by 31,
Marlon by 140, and Seneca by 109
wore the closest Democratic counties.
Not one of the old-Democratic strong
holds approached the two thousand
line. Cuyahoga was 2.328, being the
only' one 1U that class.
Chairman Dick also paid: "We
shall certainly elect 17, and probably
18, of the 21 members of Congress."
That Is Just the number. The close
districts were tlje J2th, (Franklin coun
ty), where Badger, Democratic, beat
Hullng, Republican, by 770, as against
1,065 for Laylln, ttij? fight" being upon
purely personal grounds; the 13th,
whero Jackson, Republican, defeated
Norton, Democratic, by 327, In the
counties that gave iiNotforiv two years
ago 0,010; tho 15th in which Van Voor
bts, Republican, hoJi6l2 plurality.
This 10th District rives Chairman
Dick tho largest majority for Congress
in tho state probably Ho is credited
with 11,471 plurality over O. D. Ever
hard, but this Is pearly all clear ma
jority, as tho third papty voto on Con
gress cut practically no flgure In this
district. Longwortb, in tho First dis
trict has 14,011 plurality and GoebeJ
In the Second 12,17p, but there was a
largo Socialist vote n both the Cincin
nati districts, diminishing their major
ities." In tho 18th district, Kennedy
had 11,050 plurality over Fojey, the
Domocrat, but Duffy,1 the Laboi? canity
date, received 7.023 Votes, making Keh.
nedy's majority 4.Q33.
Some extraordlpary changes in plur
alities may be note,d In the Congres
sional districts. The, Thjrd district re
elected Novln by $,85$; while bis pre-i
vlous .plurality, was 15,4. Harvey Gar
ber, chairman of fhe pemocratlp state
Executive committee'' bad only 3,863
over Rogers, hi tho Fourth district,
which was Democratic two years ago
'by 8.543. In 'the Fifth district John
S. Snook was re-elected by 2.538, com
pared with 3,708 in 1000. In tbe Eighth
district Judge, Wnrnock was re-elected
by 5,534, compared with 4,530. In the
Ninth, Southard's re-election Is by 7,
042, an against 2;847,. while General

The revival of rifle practice among

is regarded by competent judges as
one of the best steps that have been

So many splendid cures have been make in purely nervous affections by Dr. A.
W. Chase's Nerve Pills, peoplo are apt to lose sight of the fact that they are a magnifi

as it should to the blood a richness in quantity and quality no other medicine oan
appetite, digestion, strength all are furnished by their tonic power. To the system at
large they give a general feeling of vigorous, robust health.
Mrs. B. Hogan, of No. 101 Hickory

says: "We have used Dr. A. W.
Chase's Nerve Pills with great suc
cess where the stomach waa weak
