When oa* makes a great discovery,
solves a profound problem or in
any way contribute* to the prosperity
of mankind, bis modesty should not
prevent him tram calling attention to
his glorious aecompllsklbfti-.s. it has
been said that, "He also serves who
only stands and watts," but he serves
better whose constant aim Is to perform
some useful task, to make some
footprints on the sands of time. Statesmen.
editors, economical experts, philosophers,
farmers, fanatics, pagans,
poets and populists have sll taxed
their ingenuity and tested the patience
of their oclxhbc ; by promulgating
useless theories on "How to re
duos the cost of living. The have
apparently given up In despair, decided
that the problem Is beyond human
solution. In this we wish to show them
the error of their ways, to point out
that the situation can be relieved by
following a system we have with great
euro and analytical exactness mapped
out. Our theory?which Is not exactly
a theory but a plain, logical idea, which
possesses the redeeming feature o(
being guaranteed to give results it
followed?is this: Let every defeated
candidate In tho state plant and cultivate
potatoes this year. Your dignity
need not prevent you from doing
this and your laziness should not. in
giving this advice to a waiting world,
we realize the full force of the auago
that every doctor should be willing
to take his own medicine. We belong
to the class of defeated candidates
ourselves. Previous to the election
we had visions of honors and glorythat
ne'er electrified the dreams oi
kings and princes, but when the votes
were counted and the flashlights announced
to the breathless multitudes
that a wiser and a better man had won
the race, we at once decided to plant
potatoes and let the educational affaire
of Monongalia county be conducted
by those capable ot shedding
light pn ail intricate and inaniuiuto
things. S. C. MCSGilAVE.
