Never In tha history of lfaditoa county haa such a record 'of ballot "scratching" born made as In th'a etecfon. Old tlma Rapubllcana and Democrat for tha first time slipped out of thalr Usual columns and picked a man or two tfm I ho other party. A food set of officers hava baen choaen from Judge to Jailor, and tha vsst majority of tha Individual voter of tha county ara sted with tva reau't of tha election. To ba aura, bo h tha Republic aa and Democrat! orgsnlsat'ons ara d'ap pointed at not t'ng t"-'- - Iris tickets, hut It la unmiatakably true that tha clUaeM of Madiaon county elected tha men whom they wished to serve them during tha rext four year. Straight polities played a lcaa conspicuous part than aver be fore in. tha h ttry of Madison county; and for tha flrat t'me In h-r hlt-r B'fa held t-a wand. At leaat three, and probably four, of tha newly elected officers owe thalr victory almost en. t'r-' to B"-a Ie Todd for Circuit Clerk, and Jam Park for Repreeertatlve, led the the Republican ticket to Berea by an unprecedented vote. El met De the rare for Sheriff and J no. D. Oo-n,re .W-a led be Demncrstie ticket by a phenomenal vote. Bad any of these men teceivedthelr normal vote In Berea, thi"' wou'd have nronably been defeated, w'th the poaaible ex. eeption of Mr. Deatberage, whose lead in Richmond and other pata of the county over hi opponent was far beyond that of hi colleagues. ' Berea, which baa been from the beginning a Republican strong fcoM v.. j- r vi'r'-Tit voters than any other section of Madison county. About twice aa many people In Berea claw the reserve a Irdependenta a in the city of Richmond, which I muck larger. We repeat a statement made In The Often some weeks ago, "that the dert'ry of America la In tha hands of the Independert Vetera" and when our citisenahip rise to the point of voting for the man in spite of the party organization, we will have better governmert and a greater appreciation of the 'ran ch's rlrht The reason ao many people rare bo l'ttle for their franchise privilege Is that oftentimes if mean ao Ilt'le. But the private cititen reigned supreme at this year's e'ection in Madison ennntv. A V"te of confidence and fa'th ba been' extended to our winning candidates and they rnunt not fall us. Mad" son cotin'v irnt have tetter order end stricter law en forcement la the future than in the past Moral Issues were In volved In this campaign, moral promise have been made and MfWn rnf-tv is going to look for noticeable Improvement along many lines. ree Years Ago and Now - If Is easy to forget . It waa a treat dav when the American army turned the foe of war and drove back the Germans. Nothing waa too good for tv t-en Bit we do forget TJje proud line of sol. ' diera that swep the fields of France waa one thi"g. The hun dreds and thousands who came hobbling back with rained health, with crlnpled leva and with erinp'ed lunvs make quite a different impression a poo us. There's nothing about a crutch that arouses erthuslasm like a gun. The hacking cough, the pale face, the alow decline and final death of the tuberculous soldier is not glori ous like death upon the field of battle . It la er to pas the unfortunate by. We become accustomed to seeing them. We can't help them alL There's some way, we reflect that the State or some orffani. satinn of society will take rare of them if they'll apply. So we steel oar hearts and pass on. But those soldier boys. They did It for, you for me. What would you take for an arm or a leg or aa eye or a lung? Those losses will' ixver be paid for. The ex-service man must go his way, perhapa bitterly reflecting that -he rave the Wot he had, the proudest hopes of hi life, but the people for whom he gave it, forgot. They passed him by. Do you think this doent apply to Berea T If you th'nk that, r to Red Cross headquarter and sea. There the secretary la daily helpirg to pay the debt we owe to the men who gave the best thev had to give. Already, aeventl of our own chapter boys have died. There are others who will .lie from their experience in the war. Let u make it as easy for them aa we can. The ones who get more than they ought to have shouldn't hurt us nearly aa badly aa those who gave ao much and we didnt do our best to show them that we cared. The numrer of ex-service men who reed the help the Red Grass) gtvee la Increasing rather than decreasing. For God's sake, do not take from them the friend that holds out a helping band.

CBESTFR MILTON 8 AN FORD TO LECTURE IN CHAPEL "Failures of the Misfits" will be the subject of the lecture to be delivered here on the Lyceum Course Monday evening, November 14, by Chester Milton Sanford, well-known authority on vocational problems. Mr. Sanford's ' lecture helps to solve the problems of "What Shall I Do In the World?" Its purpose is to help eliminate misfits in industry and the profes sions. - It vitally concerns every person, old and young, who has the future of America at heart Cheater Milton Sanford has given over three hundred lectures on Red-path- Chautauquaa. Re has made over two hundred addresses before chambers of commerce, rotary clubs, women's clubs, and religious organi sation, besides being in greet demand for commencement addresses snd lec ture at teachers' Insf tutee. He Is aa experienced and successful lec turer. Mr. Sanford approaches his subject from every possible angle. Bis is an important topic, and ho disc us te It in a war which will make decidedly for individual and community advance ment i ' extending your foa tt clvfl'a families In a similar mHstrv. mothering all the needy ones of onr eommunitv.

The white and the b'ack al'ke among Our ex-service men bring their problems to the Red Cross. Some are perhaps not deserv'ng, but he percentage, I bel'eve. is not great er than tho bli"ded and hypocrite in ""r cRurrhes. With many of them their heroic ' endurance of d'sase extracted in serytee haa sq extended into time that to connect their dis aMl'tV with their military servi-e 's hsrd. Some specific instances may be of interest to you. A colored man of our territory. stalwart honest and industrious, de scribed by his employer with the words: "I never worked a better ha-d," returned from the service broken In hea'th, but attempted to work at differert Jobs in different lo calities until consulting an U. S. P. H. doctor, ho waa pronounced hope lessly 0 -with tuberculosis and heart compilation. At this stave vour secretary entered upon her tak n th's case, and could vou see thst file of letters snd televrsms, you could - better appreciate tho succeeds of the tssk. Hosnitalisation flrat secured and when at one time while in hospital he received discour aging news ss to an award of com penaation, be replied to his inform snt: "I will not give It up unt'l Mfss Erg'ish does." Then with his shaky hand and swimming brain from weakness he wrote me. How happy I . waa to, soon after, wire him an award had been made. He, with ev oral others in our chapter territory, have In the past year yielded to the dread disease, tuberculos's, and who among us would not havs preferred a glorious death on the battle field to the supreme sacrifice In this form sfter having endured in the line of duty. ' One other Instance will suffice. As I looked Into, the faoe a few weeks ago of one who still bore the, marks of a fixi physique, tho breathing was laborious and death imminent from T. B., I waa moved, as I se'dom am, aa I talked to him on eternity. How I did long for Christ and heaven to be real to him, not Just a doctrine nor a theory. I cannot put in cold print his expression of apprecia tion of my visit snd the fsmily no less, and Just before he died a week later, he said to his father: "When I am gone, y i go. to the Red Cross lady at Berea to get papers Axed; I would trust her anywhere." Place theae men as your sons under similar conditions, would it not be worth your ten dollars or even your one hurfred per year to have them miniatered to. They fought our battlea. What Is the debt we owe them ? Not as a debt are they asking It but as an expres sion of love and appreciation, to feed their longing souls. We will now turn our attention to some of the work among our civilian families.
