If both Bryan and Kern succeed in landing themselves in the senate, the campaign will not have been made in vain. The democratic donkey and the pro- ; hibition camel might as well be turned ; out for another four years. “Ice King” Morse has been found j guilty of violating the national banking law and has been sentenced to fifteen : years in the penitentiary. Morse’s of- j fenses were long standing. He repeat- I edly was warned by the comptroller of | the currency, but paid no heed. He , might have continued in his lawless ca j reer indefinitely, but he was caught in j the panic and “cleaned up.” —■——i The big land drawing conducted by ! Uncle Sam isn’t a lottery or a gamble therefore newspapers may prill* the re- , suits of the “drawings” without fear of . the postoffice department. The lucky : drawer of a berry spoon at a church fair j comes under the rule and the postoffice j department says, no!

With an exhibit of forty six sheep and twenty-nine hogs, the University of Wisconsin’ College of Agriculture, will be well represented at the International Live Stock Show at Chicago, which opeus Nov. 28. The animals are all en tered in the fat classes, and the entire iot of hogs will be sold, on account of the danger of bringing back hog cholera. A Icrge number of both hogs and sheep will be entered in the slaughtering con test, as well as in open and college classes on foot. The judging of these animals by impartial expert judges in* the open classes and the killing tests will furnish valuable data in connection with feeding and breeding experiments which have been conducted with some of these animals. The advance enrollment for the dairy course in the University of Wisconsin, which opened Nov. 4, indicates that the facilities of the dairy school will be taxed again. A total oi 159 men, including 86 creamery men and 73 cheesemakers, made application for entry. Ten of these come from other states, notwithstanding the additional tuition fee required from non residents of Wisconsin. Those who take this course are required to have had one season’s experience in a cream ery or cheese factory. Many, however, have had more extended experience, 15 of this year’s applicants having had two years practical work, 8 over three j'ears and 7 over seven years experience. The ages of the men range from 16 to 50 years, showing the adaptability of the work to the needs of various classes. As was predicted long ago, the big corner in coffee, to which allusion was made in these columns a month or more ago, has reached its climax. The three Brazilian coffee growing provinces that were engineering the deal, trying to force prices to a more remunerative fig ure, have given up the scheme, after sustaining losses amounting to $15,000,- 000. This is a pretty big world and cof fee is grown in nearly one hundred countries, so it was rather a doubtful experiment from the start; now tpey are very sure of it, and, in addition, they have more coffee than ever on hand. Brazil is much the largest coffee grower in the world and believed she could con trol the prices. The trouble was, she grew too much, more than the w r orld could or would absorb To have cur tailed production would have beeii a better remedy, only when coffee trees are once planted they keep on produc ing. The optimist, w T hile he sees much of the evil, sees also much of the good. He sees more of the beauty, hears more of the music; his mental vision is keener; his spiritual insight deeper. His whole view of life is one of promise. When the problems, temptations and vexations come, he stands squarely in his path, and by attitude %pd expression declares bis firm belief in that ultimate good. He has many experiences, and some times he fails; but he rests stronger in resolution for having discovered a weak -uess. He looks upon evils as something to be overcome. He makes effort, in proportionate this does he elevates him self to a higher plane of life. He has a mission >n the world and proceeds to do his work. This is usually done without demonstration. His force is like the sublime forces of the universe—silent, but always acting. Like the pessimist, his life and thoughts are contagious; unlike the pessimist he is welcome. If the two come face to face he will never yield to the latter’s influence. He knows that eternal truth and goodness are working through him, and he believes ultimate triumph. Stile, so far as the Trempealeau con test is concerned, it really proves noth ing advantageous to the primary law. In truth, little so far has transpired in Wisconsin that any special satisfaction to these who created the is sue that eventuated in the enactment of that law. If primary elections have pro duced wholesome results: if they have purified politics; if they have reduced expenditures of money at the polls; if they have given the poor man a better chance for public office; if they have been an improvement upon the old cau cus system in any particular whatever, it would be immensely illuminating to have the fact pointed out. The truth is, electoral expenses have been multiplied under the new system: there is no sus picion that the personality of the legis lature is to be heightened; it has effect ed the elevation of men in some cases who could not have obtained advance ment under the “old regime”: and it even threatens the early effacement from politics of its most conspicuous sponsors. It was practically an untried experiment which Wisconsin hastily adopted —and now apparently are stead ily on-coming tragic consequences to those who supposedly would be the first to profit by its operation. Other states, playing with the buzz saw, might well take warning.—Madison Democrat. ARE YOU LOOKING FOR THE BEST Groceries at right prices?

J. W. CONN,“n One of the queer things to reconcile is that in those states which boast of their chivalry the shotgun should still be considered the -final arbiter of all differences. Even though some fourteen or more thousands of our Blue Jackets are on the other side of the world and will not be home for their Christmas dinners, Uncle Sam has not forgotten them. He has chartered the big ocean liner Celtic to carry their Christmas dinners to them, wherever they may happen to be when the joyful day comes along. A full supply of turkeys, cranberries, ap pies, mince pies, pumpkin pies, celery, raisins and all other etes. that enter into the making of a first class Cnristmas feast, has been gathered together. Uncle 3am always had the reputation of being a good provider. I Common Council Proceedings. Edgerton, Wis., Nov. 3, 1908. Regular meeting of the common coun cil, Mayor Ellingsoc presiding.
