The weath. er was oft he sere character sad I he northkestera part a saw storm was ragtle. A heavy vote was polled. In spite of that, the normal ReIubp Iesal vote was not brought out. Supporters of Colonel Roosevelt are declartaing that the Democrats carried the election for la oIlette. BeSore this can be success.tlly advanced the vote cast must be compred with the ROBERT M. LA POLLETTE 1itad tate Senator Prem Wiems normal vote cast. It appears that it will fall below the normal. City elec tions were being held throughout the state and these Indicate that the Democrats were kept busy among themselves. In spite of that many Democrats undoubtedly voted for La Pollette. but not enough to materially fect the result. The strength of the La Follette vote is a surprise to the La Follette sup porters themselves. They had expect, ed strength in the eastern part of the state but were prepared for a heavy loss on the slope district where Roosevelt formerly lived. Carries Cow Country. IA Follette had carried Billings county the former home of Colonel Roosevelt and lost Medora, Rooe eolt's home town, by only 7 votes. The early returns indicate that La llUette has woe In the second diw trlct In which George M. Young of Valley City is a candidate for con. grass. This district was the one In vaded first by Senator La Pollette to his speaking tour. When Theodore Roosevelt's name was first suggested. the second seemed to be in line for Roosevelt. Geo. M. Young was said to be the only man in Valley City for la Follette. Mr. Young stated that the second district would give La Follette a majority of 8,000. A telegram of congratulatlon was set to Senator La Polltte from Fergo upon his sucoess in carrying the state. Another telegram was seat Io L. . banna, stalwart candidate far governor. which contained the grim word "Next." The result f the presdentlal contest is likely to have a serious result on the state fight that is still to come. Congressman Hanna. who I ethe stalwart candidate for gov ernor took up the Roosevelt boom as a probable winner.

The story of the penal settlements or Australia and Tasmaila, and the carnival o cruelt e ad of rime that attended the convict system. is most remarkable In the light of subsequent eveats. The crimes for which ee viets were seat from nglandl .to Botany bay and Van Diemea's land were in great part abomtMable. nad the explatlon was certainly terrtible. The convicts were put at work lI the broiling Australian sun. Often they worked Ia chains, and the chains were not counted as diminishing their capacity for hard labor. Even the best conducted of them were let out to farmers and the proprietors of sheep ranges. If these farmers hap pened to be humane, the convict might be reasonably happy. But In masy cases the farmer regarded his con vict helper as a slave, as Indeed he was, and a beast of burden, to be used as cruelly as possible. The result was that as many of the convicts as could do so escaped to the woods and became "bushrangers" or bandits. They preyed on the natives and on the settlers, committing rob. beries that were not infrequently at tended with murder. They became such a .terror to the peaceful settlers that when Mike Howe proposed a peace, In which he was to be "treated as a gentleman." they were very glad to make the ar rangement. But the governor-general at Sydney refused to give his sano tion to the pact, and Howe took to the bush again. He was pursued by troops, and In a dreadful hand to hand conflict was overcome and be headed by a gigantic soldier known as "Hig Bill." Howe's followers continued the war relentlessly. but at last there came a change. The convicts tired of bush ranging and little by little settled down to good conduct. The system of penal settlements was abolished. No more convicts came out from England. Old Windmill is Destroyed After Doing Service Nearly 150 Years at Orton, London, It Is Demol. Ished by Dynamite. London.-A 150-year-old windmill. which formed a prominent landmark at Orton. Waterville. near Peterbor ough, has been blown up by dynamite. The windmill, which stood as steady as the day when it was completed. was some years ago fitted with an al ternate steam plant. But the tendency of the times has been toward the ex tUnetion of small country mills. For some time it had been without a mil ler. Recently it had become the re sort on Sundays of youthful gamblers. The authorities of Pembroke college, Cambridge, to whom it belonged, had recelved so many complaints that they decided to have it destroyed. Ten pounds of dynamite were distributed round the base of the mill, the sails of which had been removed. The machinery, though rusty, was still standing. A time fuse was lighted; TO WED LEAP YEAR OR NEVER Taft's Aid, Sailing, Declares Life Will Be Lonely and Miserable Unless Some Girl Proposes.

The picture shows a street scene In the capital city and the latest photograph of Manual Bo nllla, president of Honduras. Some of the convicts became the most Industrious farmers and the most thrifty and law-abiding merchants In the country. Their children gave the lie to the law of heredity by becom ing veritable gentlemen. Then it was that the people of the former col onies performed a surprising act of grace and confidence by decreelag the destruction of all the records of con vict banishment and all the sen tences and orders applying to the members of the convict community. The descendants of the convicts are now merged and lost In the Australa sian population. They are prominent in the affairs of the colonies, and bold offces of distinction. If their origin isknown. no one taunts them with it. there was a terrific explosion, accom. panied by a cloud of dust. And all that remained of the old mill war a heap of scrap Iron and broken ma sonry. UNCLE SAM ADOPTS "BABY" Tiny Mail Sack Originating in Chi. cagb Already Saves $I00,0 for Government. Chicago.
