MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING. DEMOCRATIC PAPERS UP AND DOWN Indiana are beginning their customary quadrennial arguments, which for speciousness, give very little credit to the voter for his ability to reason out things for himself.. A sample . -x..,- to n,.nH Iti n nrvan sheet -which declares that OI 11113 SI IB UL aigUlUCUl 13 ivuuu nnvnr Wanlv has called a special. session of the legislature for the pur- . i Coinnn nf mursp this stvle of reasoning is dished pose vl ea.Lei iiniianiie, uo ouiuuu. w nt for the exoress purpose of lining up the saloon men with the Lieber- rr-forH hrewerv combine, which 1s sending its agents throughout the state, backed up by its millions, to enlist support by threat and intimidation for the democratic state ticket. The saloon man knows that no one man can xtirTTiinate the saloon in Indiana. The statement is an insult to the in- tPin?m(.fl of the thinking voters. Democratic organs are going out of their w,v to hnddlfi the saloonmen. together like a lot of frightened sheep and i v roTflihiipan Trtv is trvme to put them out of III ii lit? Lilclil UCiit T c buai, t,ja A, . . , - hn;lTiPss. Governor Hanly has nothing to do with exterminating the saloons Nor has the republican party. County option is not extermination. The dem ocratic platform is for making the ward or township the unit. How long WmiM some of the saloons in Hammond last if the ward was the unit? We repeat, the democratic party wants to wipe them out by making the ward the unit Read the democratic state platform. The republican party wants to mak the county the unit DONT LET THEM PULL THE WOOL OVER YOUR EYES,MR. SALOONMAN! A PRESIDENT'S MOST IMPORTANT DUTY. A LAY SERMONET. The text: It Is easier to be good than to be bad. You have tried both, my brethren, and I appeal to your personal expe rience for confirmation of my text Has it not been easier to behave your self and enjoy the fruits of your good behavior than to sin away your day of grace and take the consequences? But you do not always behave your self. Nor do other people. Stop a moment and think It over. How strange it is that, after human be ings have tried both ways of doing and have proved ten thousand times ten thousand times that badness does not pay, yet they go on doing evil. Why? You know, my friends, and I know that virtue is so made that it fits Into the way the world is built And we know that vice is everywhere and al ways a misfit Nevertheless We go on everlastingly in the old, old attempt to fit vice into the place made for virtue. Our fingers get pinched in trying. Sometimes we weep over the hurt or the failure. Emerson said, "The devil is an ass." What he meant was that the devil is a poor logician. His arguments are flimsy. He is a robust liar. He lied to Adam and Eve. He told them to eat and be gods. He told them they should not surely die. In other words, he said they could violate the law without being punished for it The devil says the same thing today. He tells you, my friendly fellow sin ner, that you can do evil and not be caught at it. He tells you you are an exception to the rule of the universe. You will not suffer the consequences of breaking the moral law. You are too smart And Though you know he is a consum mate liar and an ass, my dear brother, you take his advice and gulp down the forbidden fruit Some day, they say, sin will be ex tinct Maybe. When that day comes it will come when all men are so good they will all want to quit sinning. And that time is too far away to do you any good, my brethren, or me. Our only chance is to be as good as we can De nere ana now. uur oniy way is to take to heart the world old lesson that it is easier to be good than bad and quit our meanness. Selahi barber meant the style or the kind of hair tonic he wished, and thinking to get the best, the young man aswered "Bloomfleld," of course. The barber combed his hair "dry." Cape Girar deau (Mo.)

Thomas Lowe of Kokomo, whose wife lost her life in a vain endeavor to save the money secreted In a closet of her burning home, west of the city, declares that beside the $1,200 he had taken with him to Kokomo unknown to her and the $107 saved from the ashes, that at least $1,000 in. paper money was destroyed in the flames. AT LOGGERHEADS WITH HAXLY. Governor Hanly and the Clinton county council at Frankfort, are at Jogerheads in regard to the election ordered by the governor to fill the vacancy caused by the death of Sena tor Farber. The county council has refused to make an appropriation for the expense of the election, claiming they have no right to appropriate money for an election that is not held according to the law, the necessary notification being impossible owing to the short time Intervening. PROFESSOR GOES TO COLON. Prof. Lester Smith of Bloomington will sail next week for Colon, to take the superintendency of all the schools of Panama at a salary of $3,000 a year. DRY WEATHER BOOSTS PRICES. The dry weather has boosted the price of corn in the field. Persons who attend the numerous farmers' public sales In Newcastle have remarked that the longer the dry weather continues the higher climbs the price of corn. EMPLOY SEW LAW FIRST. The citizens of Lewlsvllle are the first in Henry county to take advan tage of the three-mile-highway law passed by the last legislature.

Appropriations amounting to $298,000 including a $20,000 bond issue for the erection of a soldiers' monument, were authorized by the county council at Terre Haute today. WM. D CD LEY' FOL'LKE SPEAKS. William Dudley Foulke, civil service reformer, spoke tonight at the Pythian temple in Richmond, on the issues in volved in the present campaign. Mr. Foulke spoke independently, not ap pearing under the auspices of any poli tical party. He invited those who cared to hear his discussion to attend the meeting. $25,000 LOSS BY FIKE. Fire broke out in the Knudson lum ber yard at Huntington and caused $25,000 loss. The lumber yard office buildings sheds and houses, with the stock In the yards, were destroyed. The fire then spread to Schulenberg & Weber's grain elevator and is reaching unchecked toward the residence dis trict. The fire fighters are helpless and aid may be called. OF COURSE, WE ALL WALK IX THE XARROW PATH WHEX AVE ARE OX PARADE. BUT, OH, LORD, THE IT TS QUITE NECESSARY for the voter in taking the merits of the presi 0r,Hi mnriidatPs into consideration, to realize that the next election is not tn dPcide whether or not the republican or democratic party is supreme. The object of the election is to choose a president who is to be the chief executive I $keletoxs that daxgle ix the -not who is tn bft a functionary, who is popular because he is a closets of some people who Ul UAA UlVV I human cyclone. It is quite necessary for the voter to realize tnat it is quite i throw stoxes. TrnhaMft that four new members of the supreme court will be named by the npxt president. The future course of the nation in the interpretation of the It must be extremely nice for Lieu .titMr, ov rAt imnn the federal body. No more responsible act can be tenant Mooney's relatives to read about undertaken by any president, than the selection of federal supreme judges, such an entertaining orgy in his honor The voters are to decide between Mr. Taft and Mr. Bryan in their election or n president which man ought to be the choice? Do the records or tne re rmblican candidate, his knowledge of the law, his acknowledged qualifica tion for the highest seat in the judiciary, constitute a certificate of fitness which claims the confidence of the nation in his faithful carrying out of this most important duty? Or would you trust Bryan to appoint members of the federal supreme court? Don't you think the republican candidate better fitted? POOR ROBERT WYNN JOHNSON, the deluded negro fanatic of Gary, who is bursting off his suspender buttons trying to organize an Anti-Taft club! What a thankless task he has undertaken! The Charleston News and Courier says editorially: "We would far rather that the democratic ticket should be defeated without the negro vote, than to be successful' with it." The News and Courier, Mr. Johnson, is a powerful democratic paper. THE BEST JOKE in the republican text book is Mr. Bryan's speech of acceptance, printed in full. By all means let it get good advertising. Mr. Bryan is quite a straddle-bug. no bones broken. For this kind and I humane act, to those who carried me off the street, namely, Ed Quinn, Sam Bartlett and Frank Bergdoll, I give a year's subscription to the Stonington Star, and to Evert Adams, who helped take me h,ome, and William Leisster, who the next morning brought me an appetizing dish of Sweet Pipe apri cots, I send each of them one dollar's worth of granulated sugar And lastly the ministers who called to see me the next morning after the accident, namely, Elder Patterson and Elder Ream, who had not lost the spirit of Christ so much but what they would visit the sick and afflicted out of their own church, to these elders I send the Stonington Star for one year, and these small presents are made to en courage others to look after the man who is down and out and when he is well and on his feet make him "paddle his own canoe." Stonington (111.) Star. IN POLITICS "The way I look at It," said a Gary man, who, though a democrat, refuses to vote for Bryan, is "three times and out." If you are fat and vrant to gt rid of It, try our remedy worry. Doctor in Georgia thinks that a man dead a month Is returning to life. That's nothing. Look at Col. Bryan. Some men try to Impresa on their wives that it's no disgrace to work for a llfine. Marion Thomas P. Gore, United States senator from Oklahoma, has been assigned by the democratic state central committee to speak In Marion Saturday night. The largest auditor iura In the city, the Coliseum, has been engaged for the meeting. THIS DATE IX HISTORY.

Nelson is elated over his victory and over the fact that he can now hold title .without dispute. Gans Is still much depressed, but seems more resigned to the situation. "I still have my hotel In Baltimore.' he said, "and am In earnest when I sav intend to retire. Yes, maybe I could pick up quite a bit of money in six- round bouts. But I have been fighting for almost twenty years, and I think It Is time to stop now. I think I can make a living in the hotel business." Gans repeated that Nelson had beaten him fairly and that the Battler was the stronger man of the two. Joe's face is still much swollen and his eye clearly shows the effects of Nelson's visitation in the last two rounds. It has been lanced repeatedly, but Is still badly puffed. Nelson's rugged countenance was. also marked, bnt it was mainly by swelling of his cut lips and on of his ears. He was able to about, however. as his marks were not disfiguring. ST. LOUIS TEAM A JOKE. St. Louis, Sept. 10. Chicago, playing dashing and determined ball, proved to the satisfaction of 1,000 spectators to day just how much of a joke the St. Louis team is. Almost without an effort Brown held the cardinals safe, and the cubs, hitting hard and In the nick of time, won, 7 to 2. The cubs played with a vim and dash that was missing In their closing games at home and started the final tour of the season with a victory which served to pull them closer to second place, and hold them within striking distance of the giants. They quit the field thinking they had gained a game on New York, only to discover that the giants had rallied and won out The game today was almost a farce By terrific hitting In the first two In nings the cubs drove Baldwin from the slab and continued to score steadily off Beebe, who suffered from weak sup port. JUST A SONG AT TWILIGHT. KETCHEL RECOVERS SLOWLY. Middle-Weight May Ring Before Not Be Able Christmas. to Los Angeles, Sept 10. Although Stanley Ketchel is In no such serious condition as was at first reported, fol lowing his battle with Papke, the beat ing he sustained at the fists of the Il linois boy was severe enough to pre clude the possibility of his fighting again much before Christmas. He Is recovering- slowly from the terrific strain of the battle, but his physicians say that the long-drawn-out exertion caused a nervous shock from which he must recover before being at his best He still shows, the effects of Papke's punches and is stiff and sore. POPULAR WITH THF FARMER. THE BUSINESS MAN, THE PROFES. 8IONAL MAN AND THE MANUFACT URERTHE TIMES. Detroit, Sept. 10. In another session of twilight baseball, the shades of night being even further drawn when this one ended than was the case at Wednesday's finish. Detroit posed out the sox today. This time the score was 6 to 5, and the tigers required only ten innings to overhaul and go past their rivals. Either team ought to have won this one, according to the way one's sym pathies lie. Manager Jones found him self somewhat shy on sluggers, and the willing worker, "Doc" White, volun teered to go back and take another from the tigers. His Intentions were better than his performance. He was hit hard In the early Innings and was much more prone to giftmaklng than is his custom. BRIGHTON ABANDONS MEETING. Track Will Not Ran Off Fall Dates and WU1 Drop Its Stakes. New York, Sept 10. W. A. Engeman, president of the Brighton Beach Racing association, has announced that he will not make use of the six days in Sep tember and October granted him by the stewards of the jockey club last Jan uary. This means that the Brighton cup will be abandoned, as well as the $30,000 Produce and the Triumph stakes. Horsemen at Sheepshead Bay said it would be a good thing for the unfortunate owners of moderate horses if either the Gravesend or Empire City track should take Brighton's six days and run off a program calling for $2,509 a day in overnight events. BOTH SPEND QUIET DAYS. San Francisco, Sept. 10. Both Gans and Nelson spent as quiet a day as was A FAST MINOR HEIR. Milwaukee, Sept 10. Minor Heir is the king of pacers on the turf today. He proved his right to that title - by stepping a mile In 1:59 without the aid of a wind shield, but with a thor oughbred as a running pacemaker. It was the fastest time ever made on a Wisconsin track. Over a perfect track and under ideal weather conditions he covered the first quarter in 0:29, went to the half in 6:59, passed the three-quarter pole in 1:29 and came on down to the wire In time which made the runner In the sulky exert herself to the utmost to keep in the lead.
