WITH PAPER CONSTANTLY GOING HIGHER, we may yet hear of
fashionable paper suits.
NATURALLY, a campaign gold digger with a salary of S6OO a week is
supposed to be worthy of his hire.
FRENCH GIANT who has arrived in this country consumes two
pounds of meat, a dozen eggs and a gallon of soup at a meal. He is due
to feel shorter, at least. -
PRESIDENT SCHMIDT of the council complains “repairs” on down
town streets have lasted no longer than three weeks. Sounds as if he is
again becoming unreasonable with the Jewett administration.
Come on Home, Democrats
There is no denying the fact that the Democratic party received a
severe beating in the Maine election. The only difference of opinion that
can exist is as to the reasons for the defeat.
The League of Nations was made the overwhelming issue by the
Democrats in Maine and practically no attention was paid to the State
issues by either the Democratic speakers or the somewhat inadequate
organization in the State.
The result was, as Mr. Taggart points out, that the local situation
transcended the national question and the party that made the most of all
its advantages not only won a victory but delivered a stinging defeat to
its opponents.
The present situation in Indiana is no different than in Maine, and.
unless the Democrats of this State take heed, the results will be no differ
ent than they were in Maine.
Fundamentally Indiana is for the League of Nations, but, as we have
endeavored repeatedly to point out, the League of Nations issue is en
tirely too remote, in the face of much closer issues, to be relied upon
for success in Indiana.
In spite of the fact that there never was a time when the people of
Indiana were more vitally interested in decency in government, and there
never was a time when a change in the political complexion of the State
government was more desirable than today, entirely too much effort is
being expended by the Democrats of Indiana in argument on the League
of Nations.
The Republicans of Maine won because they did not focus their fire
on the national issue, but did take advantage of the local situation to
amass a great.vote which they are now improperly attributing to the dis
like of t .e citizens of Maine for the league.
Indiana Democrats should take advantage of the local disaffection
that everyone admits exists conduct their campaign with a view to
amalgamating those voters who are disgusted with the Harding league
stand with those voters whose disgust for Goodrichism overwhelms all
their interest in national affairs.
There are enough voters in the Republican ranks who are surfeited
with Goodrichism and enoujdi voters who are patriotically for the league
to elect a solid Democratic ijiket in Indiana.
The task'll democracy lies in convincing these voters that their only
chance for relief from Goodrichism lies in the election of a Democratic
Governor, and their only chance of upholding this nation’s standing in the
world's affairs lies in participation in the League of Nations.
In Maine the Democrats held forth nothing to the votere except the
admirable stand of Governor Cox relative to the Versailles pact.
It was not sufficient to carry the State because it was not local
enough an issue to command the interest of v the people at home.
In Indiana we have as State issues the intolerable conditions brought
about by the centralized tax laws and the Goodrich schemes.
We have the utter unfitness for office of Republican nominees as is
exemplified by the nominee for treasurer, an official who went "short” in
a county office.
We have the indorsement of the Goodrich regime of extravagance and
waste and bossism in the State platform.
We have the assurances of the Republican nominee for Governor
that, if elected, he will give us another administration” of the
same type as that under which we are now suffering.
It is evident folly for the Democrats of Indiana to assume that the
voters of this State are less interested in their taxes than in the question
of a Harding or a Wilson peace covenant.
Yet, in the very assurance of their moral position, the Democrats are
allowing the less general but more personal issues of State government to
slip by unnoticed while such sterling friends of the Goodrich administra
tion as M. E. Foley and Charles Orbison stump the State talking on the
league and repudiating such issues as the waste of thousands of dollars
of taxpayers’ money in such unholy schemes as the sale of the garbage
plant by Goodrich and others to Indianapolis.
This election will be won in Indiana by the Republicans if the Demo
crats have nothing more vitally affecting Indiana voters to offer than the
League of Nations.
It will be won by the Democrats if they can convince the voters of
Indiana that not only are they on the right side of the greatest humani
tarian issue of the day, but they also offer something tangible in the way
of relief from some of the front door abuses that are very much more
easily discernible than the truths involved in the league controversy.
By Different Methods
Down in West Virginia, where internal revenue collectors may be
shot any season of the year as legitimate game, preparations are being
made for the trial of twenty-six men indicted for murder in connection with
the killing of seven,private detectives. The first step seems to have been
to disarm those accustomed to carry weapons. Considerable time will be
consumed by the courts revoking many state weapon carrying licenses.
This makes us feel so much holier than West Virginia that we are
inclined to philosophize. ,
All we have to do here is to muzzle the press. Then the attorney for
the defendant may see the grand jury, muddy up the water, and the
prisoner is discharged. Justice Is vindicated.
Miscarriage of justice has probably been the rule in West Virginia, or
perhaps they never went to the trouble of doing anything, so certain was
the action of the court bound to be. Then the wicked citizens took the law
in their own hands and went to gun toting.
They are sure to do it every time they lose Confidence in the courts.
And yet civilization is supposed to have arrived on the Mayflower If
indeed it did not come over long before then.
Protect the Child! ,
Noblesviile wires that Mrs. Edward Walker suggests seme way to care
for the baby while mamma is voting. Being a Republican, she gets the
wrong attitude, and wants the political machine to do it.
This brings us to the very thing we feared when our wives made us
cheer for suffrage. Who will attend to the baby? No man wants his baby
to be machine attended.
Machines are not made for that. Besides, it would require the collec
tion of a large amount of money to acquire proper facilities, and the budget
for the year is determined —was some time ago.
We want to suggest that the proper way to handle this question is the
good old-fashioned way.
If the mothers can not handle it. let the candidates do it individually.
Thus they may become acquainted with the mother and possibly in
fluence her vote.
Also, the child may be so influenced by association with statesmen
that in after years it will be able to repay the favor with its vote. Any
how, keep the child out of the machine.
Appreciated
may be said to express a welcome and an appreciation of the
rural mail carrier, whose national federation meets in its first annua!
convention here? All the cheer disbursed over the country, in rain and
shine, in cold or heat; all the thrills incident to human experience can only
answer and thanks, still thanks. St rely a hearty welcome is ex
tended by Indianapolis. *3
In its published report of May 2tt,
1919. the state hoard of accounts says:
‘There was paid from county revenue
for the general repair of bridges In the
year 1918, a total of $9,871.59.
"It Is impossible to determine the
amount of work done under this head

“In the preceding pages of this report
we have discussed at length the condi
tions existing by reason of laxity of
the board of county commissioners In
the management of t&e affairs of the
county. The results shown to exist are
not due to a sudden mismanagement of
affairs of 1918, but are caused by negli
gence and bad practice which have
grown up over a period of several years,
but which seem to be continually grow

" HOROSCOPE
“The stars incline, but do not compel.”
THORS DAY, SEPT. 16.
Astrologers read this as rather an un
favorable day, for Neptune Is in an evil
place, while the Sun and Mercury are
adverse.
It is a time for cultivating the logical
trend of the mind, since the planetary
rule makes for the distortion of facts.
Deception Is supposed to be excep
tionally easy during the sinister sway
of Neptune. Then specious arguments 1
and absolute misrepresentation become as j
truth to many minds.
This is not supposed to be a lucky
day for those whi\start on journeys that
have for their aim either personal gain
or financial aggrandisement.
There is a persistent sign read as
presaging the bitterest dissensions among'
legislators, whether they belong to the
State bodies or to Congress.
Many deaths among women and chll- j
dren are Indicated. There will be also j
a continuation of the planetary rule sup- !
posed to encourage crimes against tne
weak and defenseless.

“Who.comes into my dungeon?” cried
a deep voice as Puss Junior and bis lit
tle friend, the Blackbird, entered the
cava I told you about in the last story.
"fjTWyiJ; out,” whispered the Black
bird and he started to turn around,
when a great big, tremendous bat
caught him by the wing and would have
killed him right then an dthere if Puss
hadn't drawn his sword and wounded
the bat. . .. .
And, oh, dear me, whnt a dreadful
noise that bat made. He filled the cave
with screams and yells so that Fuss
couldn’t make himself heard. But at
last the bat grew quiet, and then Puss
pointed hla sword at him and said:
“I have heard of you from my father,
the famous Puss in Boots. You have
robbed many a traveler at night, and
have blown out the candles .n the
churches and have rung the bells lu tne
steeples. I have a mind to kill you,
only It Is not my way to harm any one
unless he first harms me.”
And then Puss ricked up the Black
bird, whose wing was sorely hurt, and
lefp the cave, an-: as soon as he reached
the open air he looked about hint for a
place to spend the night, for It was
Cinderella Appeared in the Poorway.”

from tho forest and covering the valley

And the Prince, who was riding in

she wore little glass slippers that
sparkled like diamonds, ad her eyes j
were us blue as the sky at midday when
the sun is shining and her neck was as
white as the little fleecy clouds that play
hide and seek around the hilltops.
Well, after dinner was over, they all
sat around In the big hall and told stor
ies, and Puss related some of h!s adven
tures, and the ono they liked the best
was the one about his visit to Neptune
Island and the great Sea liorses that
drew the pearly boat in which the
great Rea King traveled over the ocean.
"Ah, I wonder what has become of my
good Gray Horse.” sighed little Puss
Junior, as he finished his tale. “I left
him there, for he wanted to stay a while
■with the 5' a Horses and learn how to
awlm the deep blue sea.”
And then, ail of a sudden there was a
great neighing in the court yard, and
when the Prince and Puss looked out
there stood the good Gray Horse. But
bow he had come there I cannot tell you
now, for there Is another story, as a
wonderful writer named Kipling often
says. And then Puss ran down the stone
steps and threw his paws about the neck
of his faithful steed, who began to sing:
“I stayed with Neptune's horses and
learned to swim the blue.
The deep blue bounding ocean that cuts
the earth In two.
And up its billowy mountains and down
Its silvery vales
I swam with Neptune’s horses, whose
long and flowing tails
Swept ever out behtnd them like foam
in wintry gales.”

Lancashire miner than it is for any j
two Americans from different sections
of the United States to understand each >
other. The reasons advanced for the
uniform standard In America are the I
wide use of textbooks, and the fact that '
our public schools are forced to devote
much time to the teaching of English
on account of the large for
eigners in the sehoolr. There are many
provincialisms in our language, but most
of them have been scattered over the
whole country and are understood by all.

given up as lost? W. T. S.
A. The loss of this ship, loaded with
manganese and carrying fifty-seven pas
