THE FINAL TRIUMPH OF RE-
PUBLICAN PROTECTION COMING.
Although we got n few body blows from the one
wo loved best Old Kentucky, C!od bless her
there is nothing but good tidings for Republicans
in the returns from yesterday's election.
A Governor and a Senator in New York, a Gov.
crnor in Massachusetts, a Governor and a Senator
in Ohio, a Senator in Pennsylvania, new Uepubli
can members of Congress everywhere, the return
of dear old Uncle Joe from the Danville District
in Illinois, the swamping of the Bull Moose brigade
where it would liked best to have lived longest
all of these things bring good cheer to the heart of
the old-fashioned Republican and make hiiu look
forward to the battles of 1915 and 11)10 with confi
dence and with a determination to roll up his
sleeves and fight for the restoration of the princi
ples of McKinley and Tuft with as much v'm as
he can throw into the battle.
Although it would hrive been magnificent to have
regained control of the lower house of Congress,
there is a grain of comfort in the fact that the
Domocrats will continue in power in both brunches
They will be responsible to the people for the
legislation of the next two years, and they will
not be able to place upon a Republican House nil
of the blame for their own failures to administer
the affairs of the government wisely and econom
ically. And so, Forward March! Lexington Leader.
"When the bill of the great war comes to be set
tled, it will be found a stupendous one. Political
economists estimate that, in the event of hostilities
lasting six mouths, the monetary loss to the world
will aggregate .$17,000,000,000, and conditions will
be such that national loans aggregating .8.000.000,
000, will be needed. In times of peace, the annual
military expenditures of all the Ktiropeun nations
reach $1,772,150,000, so that half of a year of war
at the present tension would equal nearly 'JO years'
expenditures in peace time. These estimates do not
include the great loss sustained by industry and
commerbe, nor the crops, buildings, and other prop
erty destroyed, but relate solely to the provision
ing, feeding, wages, cost of mobilization, ammuni
tion (land, sea and aerial), ambulances, outfitting,
bridges and pontoons, fuel, requisitions, loss on
taxes and general incidentals connected with the
actual operations of a campaign as vast as t lint
which is now under way in Kastern and Western
Europe. Christian Herald.
LOOKS NICE ON PAPER
The Postmaster General is advocating a new plan
to put the entire rural mail service into the con

Star routes. By doing this the Government would

practically ball the country, and make this splendid

THm3ETOJTAN PARTY IN ITS B8th YEAR
After the election of 1912 one of the weeklies run
a cartoon in the fond of a mnp of the Uidtcd Stutcs.
It wns nil white except for two snuill spots of black,
representing the States of Vermont nnd Utah.
Under tlje cartoon were these words:
TIIl'Rt)PUBlJlCAN PARTY IN TUB 5GT1I
YEAR OF ITS AGIO.
"Well, the Republican party is now fifty-eight
years old. On Tuesday it carried Pennsylvania by
200,000. It carried New York', Ohio anil a large
number of other Stales. It greatly increased its
representation in Congress; at this writing it seems
not impossible that it has even gained control of
the Lower House. As for the Progressive party,
born of spite and selfish ambition, it is now a thing
to be pitied rather than censured.
It was a great victory for the Republican partj'.
Tlint pnrty bus held to its principles; it has not
kowtowed to the demagogues who tried first to
coerce and Inter to unnihilute it. The sclfirseekers
who have been making their way in politics and
in journalism by preaching wild theories that were
either nonsense or revolution, have had their day.
The people are coming baok to a Republican way
of thinking. The party of Lincoln has enormously
improved its position for the great battle of 1916.

tho selfish tucties of your customers.
on will 11ml it is good for that tired
feeling. It's truo also.
A few days before last Thanksgiving
a fnrmer drovo to the .store of an Kust
oru general merchant uud called out:
' ' Prank, what aro you paj lng for
turkeys and geesof"
Tho merchant replied ho was raising
tlie market prico about four cents a
Tho farmer received tho nows with
every cvideni'o of satisfaction. Ho had
n lot of good, fat turkey and geese
nnd saw in tha merchant's offer i
chnnco to mnko a nice little clean up.
He purchased a fow things hi tho store
for iippcaranco's sake and went out.
Ho informed his wife on reaching
home that tho prices on turkeys,
gee.s0- and chickens had jumped. The
ivholo family went to work preparing
tho poultry and next day tho farmer
drove back to tho store with a big
Wiigon load of wliat ho declared to be
tho finest specimens of ThankpgiMn
eating eor seen in that state. Ho told
the merchant that ho had brought his
turkeys and geese.
" What turkeys and geese?" n
l-'inuk. 'I don't remember of telling
jou to bring mo in any."
"Well," snld tho farmer, "I was In
hero yesterday and you told mo you
were paying 20c a pound for turkes
uud so on.
" Ves, that is so," tub merchant re
plied, "but I never told you T would
l-uy them from you. 1 merely gave
011 the prices I was paying."
The farmer was deeply chagrined. He
muttered something about having gone
lo a lot of trouble to prepare' tho pool
t iy and now ho had it on his hands.
"I wonder what I will do with tills
lug load J" ho asked.
"Why don't you send it to a Chicago
catalogue house from which you get
most of your stuilT' nsked tho re
