At present he is a “stalwart” or a halt-breed;” a “pro gressive”or a “conservative,” a“county option” advocate or “anti;” “good government or “run her wide open;” and some of them seem to be a cross between a pair or overalls and an army blanket.—Ex. A young man can always make him self solid on his job by cheerfully doing what his employer wants him to, whether he thirks it best or not. He isn’t putting up the money or shoulder ing the responsibility. The man who is responsible must have a free hand to work out his own plans. So never he a bullhead or grouch with the man who gives you a job. Work to his plans and do your best to make them win and do it most cheerfully. When you can’t do that, quit your job. What the harvest shall be will de pend mainly on what we plant and sow. The voice of duty is never still. It whispers to us morning, noon and night; it reaches us from the roar of the wild tempest, the sigh of the sum mer winds, the soft, gentle murmer of the wayside brook. That still small voice will not be hushed. What volumes our faces say! Some speak of love and kindness, some of anger and hatred, others of pride and rebellion, and others still of selfishness. We can’t help our faces talking, but we can make them say pleasant things; and all should try to have them do so. Next to the wife beater comes the horse beater and it is to be regretted we have one or two in this community. A horse is the most noble and faithful of animals and the man who would abuse his horse has something lacking in his manhood. If we look only for crooked trees in the timber, we will find plenty of them but we will pass by many straight, beautiful trees and never notice them. So, to, if we look only for blemishes in the character of others, we will find them; but we may not notice the many good qualities that they possess. —J. W. Thayer is erecting a large silo for Hon.

Slid or Wrilien to the Censor I’. J. Layne, San Diego, California: “I am sure that you, and perhaps other old friends in Wisconsin will be interested to know that at a recent primary election I received the republi can nomination for a third term, as public administrator of San Diego county. In my case it is equivalent to an election, as no other party has a candidate for office in the field. As official terms here are four years, this means twelve continuous years for me, and 1 am fully resolved that it shall close my office-seeking career. I have ; had many favors at the hands of the people in dear old Vernon, and here as well, and 1 feel that this latest ex pression of the confidence and esteem of the publir is good to retire on. Though the “Insurgent” or ‘ I.incoln- Roosevelt" movement has carried our state, I have not be_n classified as such, but have chosen rather to be known as a “regular.” I have loved the old party from boyhood and have never felt called upon to “insurge” against it. 1 believe less destructive means may bo employed to remedy am ends growing up within the party. I must say 1 have admired your position, in the Censor, on political and public ! questions, and am sure that it goes far ito hold the old Badger state within ; rational lines.’’ William Cox: “I am just from the land where everything is speculative, i the state of Oregon, with headquarters lin the suburbs of Portland I have | been dealing in real estate ana have made good in the work. 1 am pleased to be back home if for but a few months, expecting to pass the winter in Florida. I can say with all truthful j ness that there is no grander spot on j earth, and I have traveled in many | states, than Vernon County I have seen more greenness and bright foliage ; siice my return than in toe whole I three years of my sojourn in the west. For farmers and the ordinary citizen Wisconsin has as much of merit to offer as any other place, and then some to spare. I am glad to be home again among old neighbors and friends.” A ST l I)\ of our stocks is a post-graduate course for 7 v woman who w ishes to know the very latest thoughts in fashions for Fall.

His funeral is reported to have been one of the most largely attended gatherings that village has known. The La Crosse papers of Thursday report that Oscar Galstad, of Westby, was badly injured in that city the nigh previous. He was a vict : of a Burt lington train, which crus! ] his left foot and tore the heel from his right foot. He was dragged some distance by the train. Galstad was taken to the Lutheran hospital for medical at tention. A Sauk county farmer was taken to the county seat and fined five dollars for neglecting to send his son to school the required number of days the past year. The man plead guilty to the offense. There is entirely too much of this neglect going on in nearly every town, city and village in the state, and truan*- .Ticers should be given a hunch ♦ v ._ their duty is clear. The countrv at large can have no greater favor be stowed upon it than to know that every boy and girl is given requite schooling to fit them for the duties of good and useful citizens. “Full to the limit,” is the statement that goes out from the La Crosse nor mal school, opening with an enrollment of 301, or 120 greater than at last year’s opening. This new school fur nishes Vernon county students with nearby educational facilities they have never before been able to enjoy.” Edward Cox of Genoa, is in receipt of a letter from a son who resides in the state of Washington saying that they experienced a killing frost on the night of August 29, which did severe damage to garden and field crops but did not seriously injure the apple yield.
