TIERNEY. r: he Wyoming Tribune finds in Col. L. E. Tiorney a worthy candidate for i*:o I'nited States Senate because he ■ as stayed with the McDowell county Republican gang and tried to keep it ' rom gobbling up everything in sight. ^ es, he has done this and more, lie has spent his time and money In the interest of Democracy when the chan ces of winning were so remote that they hardly entered into the consider ation. if. however, Col. Tierney’s strong allegiance to the party were all he had to recommend him for the po sition we certainly would not favor his candidacy. But it Is not. He is an able man, a brainy man. a clean man. an honest man and a successful business man. He not only has the interest of uis party at heart but the interest of his state and nation. It nay be depended upon that he will work tor these should he secure the I'nited States senatorship just as loyally and faithfully as he ever work ed for his party in McDowell counrv. We are glad to see that the ea »11 dacy of Col. Tierney is rapid*.* g,x\«.1 ii g in popularity in all parts of t.l.o state, and wo believe that he wii: he • ■ i one of the potent factors in tli*» sehn' toiial light with a most excellent chance of election. The Tribune says: "A man who stays with that Me Dowell county ring like Col. L. K. Tierney, or Powhatan, whose friends ate booming him for United States Senator, is outi* loci to consideration at tin* hands of his fed low-Democrats. Col. Tiernew has spent his time and money, his friends say, to keep »!»:■» machine from gobbling up the whole thing in McDowell, and that shows that he has the interest of the rest of the State' at heart.” MA It Is related that once when Mr. Clemens visited the Flatiron store Mr. Flaherty asked if he could send him some cigars, to which the hu morist replied that he did not need any nt the time, a friend having sent him some as a gift. Knowing Mr Clemen’s taste in the matter of cig -r. Mr. Flaherty inquired if they were as good as the Murdi (Iras lire Vtt, the cigar Mr. Clemons smoked al most exclusively —and if they wort made of Havana tobacco. • No.” ho said. “I can't say they are. The nearest description 1 can give o them is that the wrappers tit lik* .Mother Hubbards and the tillers tnst< like discarded clergymen's habits.” Another time when .Mr. FlaherC was calling at .Mr. Clemen's house the author became reminiscent >» j* , subject of smoking, "You know, I could not write with out smoking.” he said. ‘Once I had started to write a book and had fully made up my mind to quit smoking just to sue if my thoughts would run along a new line. Well, they surely did. for I wrote for three whole days and felt proud of my will power in abstaining so long from a habit In which 1 had indulged for so many years. Then 1 did something l had never done before; l took ail the manuscript I had written and road it over. 1 have often thought since ho fortunate for me that my publishers - neer saw it for I tore up the whole tiling. I ihen ailed my pipe, and before I closed my eyes that night I smoked live pipefuls and wrote just1 twice as much us I had destroyed. \\ hatj* mou, 1 never read it over un til the oodk published." "Ves. smoking is a great thing," he wont on. I onto told an old lady j who seemed anxious about my smok ing ‘hui.flr uui> tiling | regretted was that 1 could smoke only one cigar at a turns'' * / ** , ' \ T — - - '•COUNTV STiLL SAFE.

The Leader not satisfied with giving the latest and one of the best of the new 1911 cars has ordered the car equipped with a magneto so that the actual value they are offering is not $1,250 but $1,330 and the lucky winner will will possess a car right up to the minute in every way. Your attention is also called to the fact that those of our friends who wish cars next spring are very like ly to be disapointed unless they make a deposit of $100 a car now. Notwithstanding we ordered this car nearly two months ago, it was with the greatest diffi culty we secured the prize car to be delivered in time for the contest. 1 he Hudson Agency in New York City has con fracted for over three hundred cars, Philadelphia for about the same number and the factory representative today advised us that unless we secured deposits by January first he could give us no additional cars until June or Julv.

One lad> teacher suggested that tlie two most distinctive qualities tlio men toacheis impart are ‘‘gum chewing and the elevation of the feet.” Another lad) toaoh<*r told of a .nun tear her who advi od his clisscs of boys tc learn to smoke and chew so ns not to in* mollycoddles. If these :.;at nn nts are correct as showing the uiaracter of the men employed as teachers in New York, then all right thinking people will sympathize with the association of ludy teachers. It seems to be the opinion in Haltltnore that women are best qualified as teachers of girls and small children, hut that largo hoys should have men over them. This theory is not accept ed by tho New York lady teachers. As '• boy is turning into a man, one < f tc.ese ladies said, “Is tlie period of Hfo when, if ever, he is to get the right idea ol man's relation to women and of what ids duties of life are to be in a social way. “Surely," she ad ded. "not even the board of eduose non would contend that a man could give these things better than a wo man, or as *veTS' 'the questions involved i 1 this dls mission are difficult, and not to be (rented lightly. Hut the practical and financial situation must not be Ignor ed. Women have the monopoly of employment as teachers in the ele mentary schools for two reaso is: l'itst it is tlie belief that they are best fitted to teach small children; they have more patience, tact, and gentleness than men; second, single women are willing to work for salar ies that men, most of whom have others dependent on them, cannot af ford* to work for. The cost of public location is so heavy that unless wo men can be found who will work for small salaries, (ho taxation for the support of tile schools would be blighting upon tlie community. Hut it doc h seem wrong to pay a man more for doing given work than is laid to a woman who is doing the same work as well or better. That is injustice which seems hard to cure. Baltimore Sun.. -- _[ j ust- j oshes | i Hunters, Peware! A farmer in a county in Central I'ennsyBania lias posted his woods nst hunters. When asked by n Ti:an, who had been rending one of the notices, whether ho intended to enforce them strictly, the fanner re plied: “Do 1? Do I aftcr my experience of last fall? Peppered my old cow in the face, broke a sheep’s log runnin* it. down a bank, tore the load pipe out o’ my spring, stoppin* the water at my house and burn right in corn shuck in’, blowed off part of my colt’s tail, thinkiu’ it a squirrel in the bushes; set the woods on lire so’s we had to light it all night for a week after, killed my ducks and game rooster, broke down fifty rods o’ post and r til fence; and then wonder if 1 mean it when I put up ’Keep Out’ notices.
