Throughout the country tho count;
is the iiioHt neglected unit of govern
nicnt, 1 111 in Virginia there are heart
e n I n g evidences tliut the people ar
beginning to interest themselves in it
t>f late wo havo tsoon in our State con
temporaries communications and cdl
torials urging county boards? of super
visors to obey in every particular th<
statute which requires that they slial
publish after each meeting ji state
ment of county expenditures, it is :
healthy sign of progress in public af
fairs when tiie citizens of any count)
take thought of their fiscal status am
seek to fiti<1 how much money the>
iiave, how it is being spent, how mud
of it is being spent, whether it is beiti*:
used economically, and. whether it it
getting the best possible results foi
the outlay.
Of course, no wrongful intent is tc
be ascribed to boards of supervisors
who have chosen to nullify the statute
in their particular jurisdictions, but
now that they have so generally been
put upon notice that they havo ig
nored the law, the> should be careful
to sec to It hereafter that full and
prompt publications are made of the
county's receipts and disbursements.
Sound business management should re
quire them, even if the statute did not.
The chairman of one of the boards of
supervisors which failed to comply
with the law explained that "we have
passed over the requirements of the
law only when we thought it was to
tho interest of our people to do so."
but it is never to the interest of the
people to fail to fulfill the law's com
mands. Such a course sets unwise ex
ample, coming as it does from con
stituted authority.
.Nor should the responsibility of cir
cuit judges bo forgotten in this par
ticular. It is the duty of such courts
after each meeting of the boards of
supervisors in their jurisdiction to as
certain whether they have performed
their duties and if not to penalize
them.

The friend who tires that query at
you fresh from vacationing usually ex
pects a groan of dissent. The accepted
theory is that loafing in strange climes
makes Richmond look like a dismal
prison yawning for a returned victim.
Yd 1 -ts ot people seem to be right
alad tiny were spared to get back to
the home town at all after a summer's
adventures by field and Hood. In fact,
luwn in the heart of most wanderers
? a deep faith that life In Richmond
holds about as mu. h pleasure as any
where in the world. It's a right good
Did place.
Xot that we want to miss vacations,
i'hey teach us to appreciate our own
rt ley ring*. The man who goes to New
Vi? k, loses his trunk, sees a woman
: in over by an automobile, drips hi"
a: ne;. from him at every pore, is bull
I ,fil. cheated and scared t> death.
ts of: at I'.lba again with a sens** of
'?v< r?.f every soul In town. If he
cannot be happy over anything else.
< an rejoice that manners still exist
? r- a.'id that Insults and indifference
are not regarded as smart and up-t >
date. Of course, there are plenty of
polite people all around, but the vaca
tionist generally does not see them.
Tii'! people he met ts are generally po
lit" only to the lady "n the dollar.
The Impression one gets from trav
elers:" tales 1? that they arc glad to
get b.?ck. One comes with tales of
frosty nights and falling leaves that
make life miserable in the pleasant
depths of the North, lie unities at the
blooms o'erspreading hl? native
heath. Another can remember only
the trouble he had making i..Elec
tions. getting hotel accommodation and
doing lightning calculations between
Ills poeketbook and the tips h-> had
to pay for service. The camper from
the woods has long wails about,
snakes, and no snake medicine for
miles, or about swarms 'if black gnats
like the plagtio in Kgypt. The rest
..ml change did them good?and so ? 1 i'1
everybody else.
Then at bottom, most people nre glad
to net to work. I.lfe is not all beer
;ind skittles?or it would b,? bitterly
tires 'inc. There is fun !n doing the
job, it) putt ag yourself Into hard work,
and helping make the city grow and
other folks happy. Vacation i? a fine
1 Miry, hut everyday living is what
counts.

. j The Newport News Press. In whoa.
. | Judgments :is to political questions w<
o j have .mo often concurred, declares it
t. I self yet unable to pcrcolvo either tin
. Wis,lorn or the expediency of a Uc.no
. cratlc State platform convention, "ii
-lis usual for the party to promulgate
0 its platform when the candidates art
1 nominated, and the candidates the,,
. ; pledge themselves to support it." out
, .....temporary 8ays. correctly adding
. 'that ?The Times-Dispatch proposes to
,? j inako and promulgate a platform long
1 ; after the nominations have been made
j and iniifc after most of the candidates
, have committed themselves and made
j definite promises to the voters." The
5 I Press does not "believe in an ex post
? , facto convention and an ex post facto
i declaration."
, The convention which we suggest Is
, not ex post facto. While In an over
. , w helming number of counties Demo
cratic nomination is equivalent to
? it>,<?ctlon, let us keep In mind tho fact
that the general election is many weeks
away, jf the Democratic party of the
Mate in the existing interregnum
chooses to assemble and formulate a
broad declaration of fundamental prln
jciples to chart the course of Demo
cratic legislators, ils action in no sense
would be retroactive. The Democrats
! who have been nominated either by
convention or in the primaries for the
(icneral Assembly have been chosen on
pel son.il and individual platforms, and
! not upon a general party platform.
Jn a number of advanced States there
1 are mandatory statutes requiring that
the candidates for the various State
odices and for the Legislature nomi
nated by each political party shall meet
at tho State Capitol before the gen
ii al election and formulae the State
| platform of their party, which is to
; be published not later than twenty
| four hours after its adoption. Such a
? course Is not considered ex post facto.
There is room for honest difference
j within the Democratic party In Vir
ginia. and there is room for honest
agreement. I.et the differences nlone,
sa> we, but let's have the agreement
as to the things upon which we can
all come rogether. The people of Vir
ginia have a right to know what are at
I least the broad and fundamental prin
ciples lor which the Dtinooracj stands
Jin the state. The Democratic platform
hastily adopted at Norfolk in J!'!" had
ineligible reference to state issues and
but little to national issues. We Dem
ocrats. no matter where we hail from
;01 what differences we possess, have
j much in common and we ought to get
j together In harmony and declare to
j the people of Virginia our common
| principles. We can easily veer away j
j from lite shoals of too specific declarn
Itlons.
The Democratic party in Virginia
must come under some cohesive force
which will unite and solidify it. The
'Press admonishes the party, "He still 1
and keep still," but our appeal Is, i
"Come, let us reason together." Dot I

| Why has the value of the butter and

j increased in the past twenty years
from $21,000,000 to JS0,000,000?
Tho answer Is; the Tniverslty of
Wisconsin. It hits introduced
th?
scholar to the row and the scientist
I to the plow. I 'ruler its auspices have:
!been invented the great fundamental1
scientific methods upon which the
modern dairy industry Is based, such
i as tho Hahcock fat test, the ll.u t ea

N.-.v methods are being installed which
will prevent the annual waste of not
less than $1.000.000 heretofore due to
losses of fat in the whey.
