OFFICIAL PAPER OF FREMONT COUNTY, THURSDAY NOV. 10. 1004. Entered at the Postoffiee at St. An thony, for transmission through the mails, ns second-class matter. SUBSCRIPTION RATES One Year 52 OO Six Months 1 CO Three Months : : 30 Advertising Rates on application. And Missouri went 10.000 Re publican 1 What do you think of that? j All the socialists in Fremont county should subscribe for the Reorganization is the Democratic cry. now that their fine gentlemen from Sope-us has been relegated to his farm. Already Mr. Bryan is denying the statement that a meet ing has been called for the reorgan ization of the dear old Democracy. Peak. We are going to devote some attention to "Socialism" for the next two years. We will begin now by making the broad statement that they do not practice what they preach. As a party they will not pay their honest debts. The Smoot investigation will divert the attention of the reading public from the issues of the late campaign rather abruptly. There are some startling things looked for that may change the sentiment of many leading Repub lican newspapers. ______ This "church influence" seems , to be rapidly spreading. Some- : thing should he done at once to i check it. Every doubtful state in the Union has gone Republican and ! even Missouri is hanging on the j laiqend with the Republican ma- ! jority. [ ------ - ----- — ■■■ - In former days it has been the custom of the Democrats to hold their conventions about two weeks after the Republicans have held theis. This is hone in order that they may find out what the Repub licans are going to do. We presume that the Democrats will follow this custom in regard to their election ; the Republicans held their election Tuesday and the Democrats will hold their election later. The Lewiston Teller has been placed in the hands of a receiver. A Lewiston special of last week says : "Judge Steele this afternoon re fused an order continuing the re ceivership for the Teller Publishing company. The court ordered that the sheriff take the plant in hand and continue printing the election ballots, allowing *20 a day ex penses for three days. The court announced that unless some settle ment was arrived at between inter ested parties by tomorrow morning at 10 o'clock, he would place the property permanently in the hands of the sheriff, which means the plant will be idle until sold. The paper was issued this evening, con trary to expectations, but contained no statement in regard to the trou ble. " A press report is already going the rounds to the effect that Presi dent Roosevelt will not be a candi date for the presidency again under any circumstances. This is the one and only consoling thought for our Democratic friends. Here is the statement purported to come from the president: "I am deeply sensible of the honor done me by the American people in thus expressing their confidence in what I have done and have tried to do. I appreciate to the full the solemn responsibility this confidence imposes upon me and I shall do all in my power not to forfeit it. On the 4th of March next I shall have served three and one half years and these three and one half years constitute my first term. The wise custom which limits the president to two terms regards the substance and not the form, and under no circumstances will I be a candidate or accept another nomination." Senator Dubois in his speech at the opera house last Friday even ing made the open statement that the Democratic party was going to disiranchise the Mormons. What ever the intention of Mr. Dubois or his party before election it is cer tainly modified since the returns have come in. Freddy will have to secure a great deal of assistance other than from his shattered party. Freddy should have said: By the grace of God and the Mikado 1 will disfranchise the Mormons, if I can onlv get the assistance of those ! d n fool Republicans. But Mr. I Freddy wants all the glory for him self. ; Good Farming Pays. Gem State Rural: It is not diffi cult to grow 50 bushels of wheat to the acre here, says Mr. G. D. Stafford, one of our best farmers. Last year Mr. Stafford produced 53 bushels of wheat to the acre, which weighed up fid 2-3 pounds to the bushel. This year, from 20J4 acres, he harvested 101S bushels, besides feeding some, before threshed, to the horses, cattle and chickens. This was done, too, notwithstand ing the very unusual frost of June 2ith, which injured more or less grains and other crops. Mr. Stafford plows the ground shallow, in ^the fall. It had been in clover and blue grass. The following spring he goes over it with a disk, and follows it with a harrow. In seed ing he uses a disk drill, and cross drills, that is, he drills half each way, and is particular to leave the surface of the land thoroughly pul verized, so that it forms a dust , mulch, : Mr. Stafford says that some peo i pie seem to think that he puts too much work on preparing the ! ground and in seeding, but be is j satisfied that it pays. His exper- ! ience and observation have taught [ him that seed well put in is more than half the battle in growing ; good crops. He puts in his grain quite early and irrigates when the j crop needs it. He uses the blue stem wheat and finds it the best for milling purposes. Last year he sold most of his wheat at the gran ary for $1.50 per hundred, and of course finds the crop a profitable one. Rugs and Floors. Rugs and Floors. Many women have the mistaken idea that hardwood floors are diffi cult to keep clean, and they sweep and scour and sew carpet all their lives with a notion that by so doing they are saving themselves work. But if they knew how to stain floors in the first place and to take care of them in the second they could save themselves work every day of their lives, lessen the burden of house cleaning about one-half and have their homes infinitely more wholesome and hygienicallv clean. Nothing is so productive of | moths and germs as carpets, fitting up close and snug to the side walls and a thorough cleansing once a year rarely cleans them out, says the New York Tribune. A year will furnish a generation of germs, and effectual germ destroyers some times destroy the carpet along with its inhabitants. Rugs, of course, can be cleaned once a week easily, and during the week any single rug that has wan ontly acquired soil can be brushed or shaken by itself without disturb ing the rest of the room for a sec ond. Lightweight rugs of ingrain filling a housekeeper can shake herself and have her rooms freshly clean without help or assistance. Almost any floor, even the old fashioned wide plank floor, can be made to look effective if properly stained. In the first place, scrub it thoroughly with hot borax suds: then, when perfectly dry, cover it! with the following preparation : Four ounces of gum shellac, one' ounce of gum mastic and one ounce of gum benzoin. Dissolve well before using and add a little umber or sienna stain if you want the floor dark. When it is necessary to wash the floor do not use soap; just wipe it up with a mop dipped in warm borax water, a teaspoonful of borax to a gallon of water, and after it is dry oil it with crude oil and kero sene. cleaning in this way leaves a floor looking as though it had just been stained. It will not be necessary to actually wash a floor thoroughly more than once a mouth. It should be oiled, though, once a week. Other mornings, if it is dusty, go over it hastily with a dry mop. Always clean hardwood floors with a mop. It is absurd waste of time and strength to clean floors on one's knees, and there are few household tasks so exhausting, un dignified and unnecessary. The floor can be easily oiled with a mop or a broom covered with a stretch n f ca nton flannel pinned securely. It is quick work done in this wa, and no strain on the knees or back. I , Hon.
