WHAT MAKES A STRONG PARTY. d<
|j'. In every community there are a *
: few people who claim to be Democrats
' i or Republicans as to National and 8
; > State Issues, but who say that In lo- c
cal affairs they "vote for the man." 8
&?; That Is a very catchy kind of political
doctrine and It is always made much
Bgjl; of. by the minority party In any par|J!;,
j tlcnlar community. The voter will be cc
fe-'O told that there Is no politics In a cerr ln
git/.*' tain office and that he ought to look ln
Efe . . at the "man" and of course the man wl

off on both sides so far as personal D!
character and qualifications go, so at- th
ler all it is a matter of politics in ev- ]a
ery olflce. No party can be stronger Cc
than Its local organizations. If the ti
various counties can't be depenJed si
upon, what can be counted as to re- it
suits in State or Nation? The way to Vc
build up a strong party Is to l6ok ed
well to the foundation and build from m
the ground up. If you are a Republl- th
can and rejoice in your party's sue- w]
cess, then don't destroy the home or- ia,
ganizatlon by alJing the opposition.
Take the ticket this fall as an example.
To be sure, there are not many
names on It and they are mostly local,
but It Is highly Important that they n
be elected. Are you a friend of Pres- co
Ident Roosevelt and want to see his ce
administration succeed? Then by all
means vote for the Republican candilate
for Congress who stands pledged er
to uphold the President's hands. A lui
rote for the Democratic candidate 'n(
tvould mean a rebuke to President ha
Again, do you think a Democratic
United States Senator would stand by
he President or be in line with Republican
policies? No Republican t0
:an think that, Then how Important
hat you vote for Republican candi- 01

hat they may elect a man to the Unit- |K"

I. Bryan should by accident or beause
of popular discontent be placed rls

or Republican candidates for the Leg- tht
slature we do more than vote for a')<

Ive long after the men for whom we 5
ote are deaj and gone. nal
Do you believe the new tax laws
re beneficial to the people? Then jlm

d them, men who will stand by the a

Hughes was named as the man capable

"A Paradise of Lies" was selected
by Miss Holland after months of read
ing of manuscripts and Saturda)
night's verdict approved her choice.
The first act presents a somewhal
different view of her from what the
public Is accustomed to Bee and shows
her versatility. It shows her as a
flower girl in the market place at
Verona and finally brings her under
the protection of a strolling player
and his mistress who Is passed upon
her as his sister.
The Becond act brings her to the
home of her father where she Is
recognized and acknowledged and
where the disclosures of Brunetta and
the succeeding interview with Fabrlo
now her afllianced husband, furnish
a scene of exceptional strength which
gave Miss Holland one of the best opportunities
for tbe display of her talents
she has had. That she arose to

scene calling forth great power and
