FOR CONGRESS IN THE TENTH. "The Tenth congressional district, for many years one of the most con spicuous constituencies in the^ United '-States, has dropped into obscurity. It Is as obscure in the halls of con gress as the remotest county in the everglades of Florida. Once con spicuous for the ability with which it was represented at Washington, it is unknown only when its member signs (the salary pay roll. The largest and one of the rightest and most populous districts in the United States, it is entitled to the best talent available to represent it at Washington. The claim is made that Frank P. Woods has done much, though talk •ea tittle, that he has been effective in accomplishing things, and has ren dered some service. lit is admitted that he has talked tout little. Has he the ability to make a speech. It is humiliating to see his manager reper to speeches as "hot rair." The most effective force in ac complishing results in legislative i&odies is ability to speak, to back up activity on the floor and committee :room by logic and artful eloquence. A .man who is not able to make a speech has no business in congress. He may break into office by "gum shoe" meth ods, but he cannot perform the func Jfcion of congressman. 'And what has Frank P. Woods "done in return for the salary he has drawn? He introduced a bill for the testing of corn stalks, for manufac turing of paper, at Boone. After slumbering a year it still sleeps slumbering a year it still sleeps He in securing a hearing? Introduced a bill fbr a public build ing at Carroll. What has become of at? Still asleep and neglected. Might Atorney General Cosson has writ mot "hot air," as he calls respectable ten an opinion in which he takes the •speech, have been worth something For what service is Frank P. Woods entitled to continuance in office? Had 'treated. Frank P. Woods is not en vtitled jto more than two terms he is -out of place and the district should aissert itself and' choose something resentative in office.—Carroll Herald, JFATHER FARRELLY FOR TAFT. Father Farrelly, during the ten years he has been pastor of St. Jo seph's parish observed the proprie •tSSes iof his priestly office so far as -politics is concerned. But at the meeting Sunday evening he improved ttlee occasion to say that he was "an indent republican." A speaker, Judge •Powers, had humorously referred to Tni-m as a "progressive, in no political sense." This brought forth the ex pression from the priest, later on, that 3ie was now going away and felt free tie say that he was "an ardent repub lican, a standpatter and, admirer of President Taft, whom he hoped to •see nominated and elected." Recent ly, for the first time in his life, he presided at a caucus and accepted the place as a delegate to the county con vention in order to help the Taft cause. He believed that Taft ranked -with Washington and Lincoln, among 4he greatest of presidents.. His re marks brought forth plaudits, though hctb-ip for anyone to ask. We would not complain at his asking for a third term if he had a record for accomplish ment which justified such a demand. If he or his friends can point to any thing to his credit in the way of se- curinS snare than a mere politician for the the county convention could not act, iaoportant and honorable office of rep- hut the attorney general holds that the failure of 10 per cent of the votes operates exactly as a failure to secure 35 per cent on a state nomina tion would operate or in case of a tie vote. It follows, therefore, that if candidates are voted for by writing in the names the county convention can do the rest. The opinion of the attorney general becomes a direction for the leaders of the political parties as to the method of procedure where candidates failed to file prior to the primary. It is well known that in a number of counties in the state there will be vacancies in the ticket because candidates failed to file in time. As long as the attorney general has given his opinion we presume there is noth ing else to do but to follow his direc tion. If there are parties in the coun ty who desire to become candidates they should see to it that their friends vote for them by writing their names upon the ballot for the office they covet. When such votes are cast jur isdiction is conferred-upon the county convention to be held after the pri mary to make nominations. It will not do to depend upon the county con vention to make nominations for an office for which no votes were cast at the primary, for under the opinion of the attorney general this cannot be done. out of every ten in the audienoe were democrats.—Carroll Herald. Frank P. Woods, the congressman (from this district, carried on his "tfiim shoe" campaign in this county for •several days, visiting practically every locality, not forgetting to call on a large number of farmers to tell pjtem .how anxious he was to continue •to tlraw the salary for another term. "Mr. Woods has forgotten the argu ment he made when a candidate four years ago that two terms were enough anything for the district or can show in what way he has impressed himself upon the country, except to vote with the democrats and against his own party, there might be some excuse for his seeking the office again In the absence of such a showing it is time for his giving way to a more capable man for the place. The Tenth congressional district of Iowa, prior to the time Mr. Woods took his seat in congress, was accustomed to recog nition and had received its full share of the money appropriated for post offices and other public buildings. The state of Iowa fared well in these re spects. It is unfortunate for Mr. Woods' reputation as a congressman and to the district he represents that he has none of these things to his credit. His most ardent supporters are unable to point to a single thing which he has accomplished for his district or state. The newspapers throughout the district are showing him up and pointing to his helpless ness as a representative of the people. It is now time a change was made and some more efficient representative selected to succeed him. Hon. Paul E. Stillman, of Jefferson, the candidate against him is such a man. He has to his credit a record of achievement. He has built up and is conducting one of the best weekly newspapers in the state. During the time he was speaker of the house of reprpsentatives in Des Moines he ac quitted himself with credit. He had the ability to command attention and to discharge the duties of the office in a crediable manner. From a moral standpoint, Mr. Stillman com mands the respect of everyone famil iar with his life. If Mr. Woods' friends are disposed to resent the criticism made against him let them point out some of the monuments to his credit since he -has been in Wash ington and we will cheerfully give them due consideration. He is not making his campaign this year on his record, because he has none to com mend him, but is making a "gum shoe" campaign, flitting from one part of the district to another, whispering en couragement to his adherents and in structing them what to do. For a month or more while drawing from the government a salary of $625.00 a month he has been roaming over the district trying to succeed himself when he should be at his post of duty at the national capital. We are fon Stillman because this congressional district is one of the large and im portant districts in the United States and is entitled to a man of dignity, character t0 rep groull( after the .. the Dower to nominate candidates tor uie iJUVVC' shown special ability he might a county office. His opinion is to the claim another term. But he has had effect that in case of a county office .'his second term, and as a mediocre there have been votes cast for can who has been treated with due meas ure of consideration, should give way )ha nf 'to someone who can nil the place ot •congressman, and retire with the feel- county convention will have the right ing that he has been handsomely resent it. that the county convention to primary in June has fnp ure to nominate for any reason, the t0 out the case, whether ten per cent of the votes of the county were cast or not. It has been contended by some that unless 10 per cent of the gorae umL UIllcoo xv vote8 were thus cast for a candidate To enjoy life one should live by the way arid see "In Arizona."

The Woods campaign managers are obviously close pressed. They would not resort to sharp practices and gross deception if they were confident of winning by fair means. But a deceit tion disclosed in the personnel and management of the Woods literary bureau at Humboldt shows a deter mination to win by foul means if they cannot by honest campaigning. Any thing to fool the people into electing Frauk P. Woods to congress is the shibolith of the opposition to Paul lv Stillman. We are free to say that if Paul Stillman cannot be elected with clean hands he does not want the oflice. He stands for honesty and manhood. For some time the district has been flooded with printed matter laudatory to Frank P. Woods, making extrava gant statements of things he has done for the district, not one of which he really accomplished. Why, he has been placed head and shoulders above the honored and distinguished men who have preceded him, by this supri ous "Woods Humboldt County Re publican Committee." People have been deceived by the literature sent out by this spurious commucee as the dishonest management has posed as the regular republican committee of that county. The following aricle has appeared in the Humboldt County Republican: "The Frank P. Woods campaign headquarters in Humboldt that is mailing campaign literature under the head of the 'Woods Humboldt County Republican Committee' has no con nection with the Humboldt County Republican Central committee nor any other committee of Humboldt county republicans. The only persons con nected with the headquarters are E. I. Stanhope and Congressman Woods." Note the statement, that this man Stanhope and Frank P. Woods, the beneficiary of the deception and fraud are the "committee." The at tempt to do business in the name oi the regular committee, to deceive the people and induce them to vof° tor Woods, by false representations, is rank dishonesty. It is cheap dirty politics, wilJul misrepresentation, an effort to get something by a .crooked, unscrupulous cheme. Is a man who would try to steal the support of the honest republicans of the tenth district fit to represent us in congress? Would you vote forj a man for even a local office who would try to get your vote by rank, deception? Would you trust such a' man out of sight? In view of the fraud in Humboldt county are you^ going to vote for Frank P. Woods against honest Paul Stillman, actual ly support a man, who has been caught in the act of trying to de ceive you and rob you of your vote? Not in a thousand years!—Carroll Herald. The Humboldt Republican had a statement printed in big letters in its last issue saying that there was no re publican committee in Humboldt that was behind Congressman Woods and sending out Woods campaign litera ture. The committee that was push ing this matter was a fellow by the name of Stanhope and Woods him self. We fail to see any great neces sity for making a denial of such a committee existing. People who are] onto the game of politics as played in these days know that sometimes even one person can be a committee. It seems that the Woods-Stanhope committee of Humboldt is pretty busy and everybody is getting their liter ature. It sounds beter to have the word committee attached to litera ture, but it fools no one who is onto the way politics are played these pro gressive days. We also notice in con nection with Woods' campaign that he quoted from the Carroll Herald in favor of his candidacy. The extract quoted is from the Carroll Herald, but it was written two years ago when the Herald was so afraid of progress ive boycott that it supported Woods when a standpatter ran against him. This year it is supporting Stillman and is not afraid to say its soul is its own for Stillman is a progressive. It makes a big'difference how a man is labelled whether there is any dif ference in the principles he advocates or not. Quoting two year old campaign stuff may be progressive, but it is cer tainly not up-to-date. The makings of a cigarette are of len the unmaking of the user.

I like to notice the houses as I pass along a country road. Some look very comfortable and home like but there are too many of the other kind—bare, neglected-looking places, and uninviting, not because of cheapness, but because they lack care and the inspiration born of refinement. In town as well as in the country, I see both old and new houses that I would not care to enter, just because the outside appearance is not attrac tive. An architect can draw a good design, and a builder can pat the house up in thorough workmanlike manner but, after it is finished and the family moves in, unless real good common sense moves with the family, the neighbors will be inclined to ad mire the fine house from a distance. There is only one right way for a man who is unfamiliar with building operations, arid that is to employ a man to draw his plans who has spent years in studying architecture and making house plans, a man who knows how to take advantage of ma terials and bow to lay out the space to the best advantage. It requires a great deal of experience Just to read a plan correctly after it is drawn. Plans are drawn to a scale. That Is easy to understand but there is not one novice in a thousand who can' look at a plan and get a correct idea of the real size, dimensions, and ac cessibility of the different rooms. He may know in.a crude sort of way that a quarter of an inch on the plan rep resents a foot on the finished work but, unless he is accustomed to a uni form exaggeration of that kind, he is sure to feel disappointed in some par ticular when the house is built. The matter of specifications is just as important as the drawings. There are a great many little things to speci fy, In making a contract, that a per son unaccustomed to such work will never think of. A person might possi bly find a contractor liberal enough to HIM 116 10*' First Floor Plan. do all the thinking, supply all the brains, take a crude plan, and turn out'a satisfactory Job. But it wouldn't happen that way more than one time In a million. Contractors are in business to make money. That is all right enough nobody objects to a con tractor making a fair profit, but what you want to guard against is an unfair icOt profit. The only way of letting a con* tractor know exactly what you want Is to Lave it specified both In the drawings and in the contract. A man may study a plan a long time and think he knows all about it but while the house Is going up he can always find room for improvement This leads to alterations, which are gener ally expensive. The specifications should state that no alterations will be paid for unless fHMBM BATtiROOfl IfllS ,, turn» ft Second Floor Plan. the consent of the owner is given la writing. I knew of an old-fashioned contractor, familiarly known as "Hen ry," who did a great deal of building and he had a motto which read, "Al ways charge for extras, and never do duct for omissions." Interpreted, it really means: "Heads, I win tails, you lose," In the game of alterations. Plans and specifications cost the owner nothing in fact, they are likely to save him a good deal of money, be sides putting him in the way of get ting a house that he wants and will be satisfied with, instead of one that ho don't want and never like. The house derlgr shown in this plan is 26 feet wicle and 44 feet long, exclusive of the porch. The chimneys are so arranged that It may be heated comfortably with stoves, which Is helped by the rooms upstairs coming directly over the rooms below, thus giving an opportunity to carry the stovepipes through to the rooms above and to warm them with drums. Houses may be made very comfortable In this way. Stoves burn less coal than a furnace, and a great many prefer them, -t is easy to warm any part of the house, and it is not neceroary to keep fire in the rooms that are not used. The house is modern and sensible in appearance, and so far as the archi tect and builder are concerned It is all right as shown on the plans and perspective but it will never be com plete as an artistic home until the grounds are laid out and planted with suitable shrubs and flowers. No plain, bare house looks right it shows at once tint there is something lacking. The only real comfortable homes are surrounded with something more pleasing than brick, mortar and paint A house like this may be built, where conditions are favorable, for about $2,000, complete with gas fix tures and plumbing. It may be that the gas fixture- are not wanted at first but it is better to pu in the pipes. Recent improvement in small gas plants makes it possible and often desirable to install a little machine just for home use. If the pipes are In, the lixtures and burners can be put on at any time. Another thing that should be remembered In building Is the hot-air pipes in the walls In case you ever want a furnace. They may be easily put in while the building is going up, but It Is an awful job to tear out and put them in afterward. Aulger Bros. Are Coming. Mr. W. M. Brown, the advance rep resentative of Aulger Bros, big tertt show, was in town the 18th arranging for the appearance of. their new play, "In Arizona." This is conceded to be the best play Aulger Bros, have as yet produced, which in our estimation is saying considerable. RAILWAY TIME TABLE. Chicago ITortbweatsrn.
