THE GREAT NATIONAL GAME "The same is never over until the game is played." The football team of Yale college has a maxim which applies to political ballotting and elections. The Yale team is never beaten until time is called." And, too, as that Immortal character of Indiana politics said in George Ade's "County Chairman," "Claim everything you haven't got, and1 concede nothln.' " The time is not so far in the past as to be forgotten when the election of Tilden and Hayes was undecided for days and the whole country seethed with xinrest. The tensity of the situa tion grew, as the conflicting bulletins of the press came out, until the riots and nervous- excitement threw busi ness to the four winds and in the city of New York the papers stopped pub lishing bulletins at the request of the mayor'. of New York. . And so on the eve of election the whole country stops Its worry about the petty round of affairs and pauses to await the answer with bated breath. Great Interests are at stake. Two of the most interesting figures in Ameri can life today are pitted for conflict, the like of which no country has as a parallel. In "Wall street, in the shops, in the farmhouse all Is expectancy. Never before has there been such a campaign. The ominous silence of the people, the apparent apathy have not meant what even the keenest political observers have been wont to ascribe to them. It is the silence of people who have made up their minds and who are not changed on the spur of the moment. -All signs fail in dry weather, and all signs are worthless in a quiet campaign. And yet there is a very splendid spectacle In a presidential election. Every four years the people come to a realization of the things which have been done in the last administration and they look ahead to the fate of the country for the next period. It .was the optimism of the founders of our United States which led to this sys tem and that optimism is still our heritage. A famous English essayist said that there are only two romantic things in life that of getting married and posting a letter. He declared that these were romantic because they were irrevocable he might have added that the casting of a ballot holds in it more romance than either, for here a man's irrevocable vote is cast and by that action the man stops for a moment to be a part of the great game of the nations he is making history. There is something about this very aspect of an election which makes it so very terrible, which gives it the ex citement of a far greater gambling in terest than a horse race. "Watch, gentlemen, the wheel is Bpinning where will It stop?" "But the game is never over until the game Is played." How many a man has done Doc Slfer's stunt. "Doc's public sperit when the eick's not takln' all his time. And he's got some for politics is sim ple, yet sublime He'll talk his principles and they air honest, but the sly Friend strikes him first, election day, he'd commodate or die." lead to lead Talks.

The slum kid put one hand on a ragged undershirt and the other on one leg of a pair of trousers fastened with a safety pin and each leg slit from the bottom to the knee hi Sunday best The New York Fresh Air fund peo ple were sending fifty poor boys to Vermont for a two weeks outing. This boy's mother, who "bad seen better days." wanted him to go, but "Gee, de odder boys '11 have rags witch is better dan dese, an" The poor lad flushed and turned away. The medical director solved that prob lem. He took the boy to a Hudson street shop, and the latter selected a pair of blue jeans trousers and a blue ging ham blouse. His eyes shone. "But I ain't got -any money," he bad said w hen entering the store. He was astonished when told the clothes were gift. He said his cap belonged to bis brother. A blue serge cap was added to the outfit The cost of Little Boy Blue's uni form was 75 cents. He walked home with a strange look on his shrewd little face, clutching his bundle with the grip of absolute own ership. The next morning he left with the party of fifty. He would not talk. Ills boy soul was so full of new gladness he was afraid It would leak. While the noisy bunch chattered about him Little Boy Blue pondered. There was a poet somewhere Inside of him that dreamed dreams of the won derland where be was going. Well, the Vermont folk bad fitted up an old farmhouse of seventeen rooms. "Gee," said Little Boy Blue, "white beds! And three windows In lay bedroom!" And there were baseball and football and swings and chicken fixings and pop corn and Ice cream and the woods and the river and wild berries and real milk! Why. all the dreams of Little Boy Blue had come true. And this two weeks of heaven for fifty boys cost $82646.50 per boy. "Gee!" said Little Boy Blue. "Here are bad una In de world, but dere are good uns too." And the moral? Why, If your heart has not already found it A Rush of Comprehension. He thought It would be a good idea to get up a sociable for the benefit of the church, so he called on an ener getic young woman whom he had visit ed for about a decade to see If they could arrange it - .

Since July 20, he has been in every county in the state and found the situation peculiar because of local conditions, where, in some respects, party lines had been abandoned. , The presence of veterans on the stage was acknowledged by the speak er, who asked them if they would change any principles in the republican platform.

NEW PAPER FOB OLD KNIGHTSTOWN Republicans to Establish Or gan There. Knightstown, Ind., Nov. 3. In ord er to provide Knightstown with a re publican newspaper, a stock company has been organized. The Knightstown Banner published by Wallace Deem has posed as a republican paper, but has been so antagonistic to the inter ests of several republican nominees as the result of the personal dislike of Deem as to be repudiated by many republican subscribers. The new pa per is expected to make its bow to the public in a short time. Although a republican plant, no selfish purposes will be subserved. TREE DWELLING ANTS. 8outh American Inseot That Acts as Plant Guardian. Ant defenders of plants and trees are some of nature's pretty marvels. The Cecropia adenopus Is a remarka ble tree of south Brazil, widely dis tributed through the tropics. Its slen der trunk la crowned with long leaves at the ends of the branches. A few active ants run continually along the branches and the leaves, but If the tree Is shaken slightly an army of ants rushes out by small apertures ready for a savage assault on the in truder. The ant Is the terrible guard Ian that the tree has retained to pro tect it from its most formidable ene my, the leaf cutter ant The defenders rarely leave their re treat where they live on small whitish egg shaped bodies about one-twelfth of an inch long, known as Mueller's corpuscles. These are formed of deli cate tissue, rich in proteids and ail, as rations for the garrison of defender ants to feed upon. The curious ar rangement by which entrance is made to the hollow stem has been studied by W. Schlmper. Just above the point of Insertion of each leaf extends nearly to the supe rior node a superficial groove, at whose end is a rounded depression. There the tissue is thin, like a diaphragm in a tube, and it also is soft The bole by which the ant enters is always pierced at this spot The ants seem to have made their entrance through the groove originally, because it was at the top. In the course of this plant's further development natural se lection augmented these natural ad vantages, so that finally the thin, frail diaphragm as it exists today was de veloped. Chicago Tribune. Married the Day They Met. Horace Greeley and Mary Toung Cheney were married the first day they met. They had corresponded for some time, a common friend who was something of a matchmaker having brought this about. She was all his fancy painted her, but she was much disappointed in his appearance, so much so that when he appeared be fore her, having proposed and been accepted by letter, she frankly tol4 him that, although she married him, she was not In love with him. Their married life was long and happy, and the loss of his wife was a blow which Greeley did not long survive. Tommy's Lunch. TJncle (who left his nephew "refresh ing") Well. Tommy, you see I'm back.

The passage of an ordinance author izing a loan of $25,000 by a bond issue was held up from passage last evening by the action of Councilman Von Pein, who objected to the passage of an ap propriation ordinance under suspen sion of the rules. City Controller Parry advised coun cil to take immediate action on the ordinance. He said that it was not absolutely necessary to pass it at once. but that bond dealers in Indiana had informed him that the best market for bonds would be found early in De cember. He said that to take advant age of this market the ordinance would have to be passed without delay as it was necessary to advertise it for three weeks. It will be remembered that council recently favored the floating of a $25,000 bond issue in preference to raising the tax rate.
