Wednesday. October 11. 1911
Just now, when gold bricks pass at
par to the (initiated tender-foot, the
patent right fakir works his wares on
the unsuspecting, and the political
demagogue harrangues the people with
bis cure-alls and tells the weary pub
lic that everybody but his precious self
is “rotten, ” dishonest, not to be trusted,
it is a right proper day to halt In the
mad rush and inquire what it ail means.
As bordering on this frenzy of distrust
and agitation the thoughtful citizen is
brought face to face with the much
heralded “recall” for public officials.
It has been said, and truly, that nine
out of every ten people we meet would,
without considering its res! import, and
| without reading, sign a petition to elec
; trocute the best citizen in the com
l munity, without even giving him the
j right of trial or an opportunity to ex
! plain. The same rashness night without
thought ’recall 1 an honest official if soma
canting mouth-worker who knew noth
ing of the real situation, should pro
ceed against one of his accusing. Doubt
less, in some instances, the recall may
be available. Here is an extract from
a personal letter written by Captain
I Silbaugh of Seattle as bearing on the
subject of recall.
“The recall of Mayor Dilling failed.
They had enough names at one time
but a thousand people saw how foolish
they had been and withdrew their names.
It has materially changed my views
about the recall, however. If it can be
invoked by such a trifling thing, then I
am opposed to it. It does not work out
akl had thought it would in our work.
The people do not seem to have intelli
gence enough to discriminate on the
real purpose of the recall law. The list
of names contained a great conglome
ration of malcontents and people whose
business had been interfered with by
enforcement of law. * * I attended
the Secretary Fisher banquet. I don’t
know about this leasing business. It’s
all right for Russia ana may be Austra
; lia, but why one law for Alaska and a
different law for the other territories
i and states? Fisher dealth the final
j blow to the Controller Bay fiasco,
j Wonder what the originators of that
j canard really think of themselves.”
j The Washington recall law may be
called into action by petition signed by |
j 25 per cent of the electors. Our very j
wise brewery-owned legislature of last j
winter gave Wisconsin a similar law. j
When tax-paying time rolls round, for
this year and next, there will be gen
eral wish that the bunch of overly-wise
reformers might either be “recalled”
or banished from political ‘control and
Wisconsin legislative manual, better
recognized as the “Blue Book,” is an
nounced to be ready for distribution
about November first. In the olden
days, before there were so many com
missions and experts, this volume was
usually delivered to members of the
legislature soon after their arrival for
the opening of the session.
Frank H. Hitchcock, postmaster gen
eral of the United States, carried 78

A court at Toronto has sentenced for

Defective Scales or Short Measures

“Not knowing what was my main

telling him of my various ailments, and
he notified me at once that I had sys

Scalo and Hair Troubles Generally
Caused by Carelessness.
Daiidrud is a contagious disease caus
ed by a microbe which also produces
baldness. Never use a comb or brush
belonging to someone else. No matter
how cleanly the owner may be. these
articles may be infected with microbes,
whlph will infect your scalp. It is far
easier to catch hair microbes than It Is
to get rid of them, and a single stroke
of an Infected comb or brush may well
lead to baldness. Never try on any
body elsc's hat. Mauy a hat-band Is
a resting place for microbes.
If yeti happen to be troubl’d with
dandruff, itching scalp, falling hair or
baldness, we have a remedy which we
believe will completely relieve these
troubles. We are so sure of this that
we offer it to you with the understand
ing that it will cost you nothing for the
trial if ‘.t does not produce the results
we claim. This remedy is called Rex
all ‘’o.T‘ Hair Tonic. We honestly be
lieve it to be the must scientific rem
edy for scalp and hair troubles, and
we know of nothing else that equals
it for effectiveness, because of the re
sults It has produced In thousands of
Rexall “93" Hair Tonic is devised to
banish dandruff, restore natural color
when its loss has been brought about
by disease, and make the hair natural
ly silky, soft tul glossy, it does this
because It stimulates the hair follicles,
destroys the germ matter, and brings
about a free, healthy circulation of
blood, which nourishes the hair roots,
causing them to tighten and grow new
hair. W want everybody who has
any troui .e with hair or scalp to know
that we think that Rexall "93” Hair
Tonie Is the best hair tonic and restor
ative in existence, and no one should
scoff at or doubt this statement until
they have put our claims to a fair test,

us nothing for the remedy if It does
not give full and complete satisfaction

Commissioner Beckholt Makes a De
tailed Explanation
For the benefit of those who were
not permitted to attend the lecture de
livered by Mr. F. A. Crosby, I wih
reiterate a few facts concerning Boy
Scouts of America.
“It is a corporation formed by a
group of men who are anxious that the
boys of America should come under the
influence of this movement ar.J be built
up in all that goes to make character
and good citizenship. The affairs of
the organization are managed by a na
tional council, composed o* some of the
most prominent men ii. our country,
who gladly and freely gi.c their time
and money that this purpose may be
accomplished.” Such men as Presi
dent Taft, Col. Theodore Roosevelt,
David Starr Jordan, Earnest T. Seton,
Luther Burbank, Colin H. Livingston,
and scores of other prominent men, are
members o l the national council.
A Scout council has been chosen in
Viroqua to carry on the local affairs,
and various officers have been chose to
keep in touch with the national council.
The aim of the movement is to supple
ment existing educational igencies md
to promote the ability in the boys to be
self-reliant and helpful tootLcrj. Per
haps there is no better way to make
obvious the aim, than to give the re
quirements of a boy to become a scout.

Some have the erroneous opinion that
the boys are to be drilled and later
handed over to the government as na
tional guards. The two have no con
nection whatever.
As little as possible of the military
spirit will be manifested in the Scout
Gymnastic and calisthenic drills will
be used for developing the Scout and
obtaining ordtv ar.d discipline.
