The bsues are drawn, the tickets arc in tho I -1 1 . tho contends rs await the opening of the polls. The electorate has two months in which to dispel any doubts that may have arisen or to determine any questions that may remain unsettled. It is the privilege as well as the duty of every citizen to conscientious ly vote according to the dictates of hl3 own Judgment in the coming election. The law makes it certain he can do so, the public welfare de mand.' that ho does. Tho facta and conditions are be fore him. His intelligence and con science must guide him In making a proper use of his prerogative. The democratic party has come into this campaign in a straightforward, legitimate way. Its primary was held in accordance with the primary law, the modern devices for recording the votes of citizens were placed at their service, tho conditions were evenly and frankly announced, and a full opportunity was given all who so de sired to vote for their favorites among them. No dirty politics was played. Each candidate had an equal and fair chance. In unprecedented numbers the voters of the city designated their Individual choices. The ticket nom inated Is as fully representative of tho citizenship of South Bend as was ever presented to the voters of the city. How striking the contrast between this exercise of the right of suffrage and that incident to the presentment and nomination of the candidates on tho so-called citizens' ticket! Tho story of that unhappy enter prise is familiar. Conceived in selfish ness and chicanery, it has met the fato "deservedly due It.

Even with this precaution it was necessary to resort to the practices of the lowest order of politicians to nominate him. Honest men, sincere in their faith in tho genuineness of the so-called citizens' movement, could he no long er deceived. Their eyes were opened to tho hollotvness of preten3 and the shallowness of the pretexts of their leaders. There was but one thing for them to do. They washed their hands of tho whole disgraceful af fair. Members of the democratic party may from this contrast take addition al pride in the ticket an overwhelm ing majority of them have nominated.

Its significance should be as broad as the states that reach from the Atlantic to the Pacific and as deep as the rno.-t profound patriotic emotion that stirs the heart of the American citizen. AMERICANS IN M MX I CO. Tho number of Americans resident in Mexico, ?s revealed by press re ports, is astonishing until the magni tude of American interests in the dis tressed republic is considered. These interests relate principally to mining and planting industries. American capital has gone into Mexi co in enormous quantities, attracted by the richness of the mineral de posits and the fertility of the soil. This is particularly true of the north ern states whose convenience as well as productiveness have tempted American capitalists. As a consequence of the unreliabil ity of Mexican labor thousands of Americans have been imported to work in the mines and on the planta tions, and it is the safety and welfare of these people that has aroused the solicitude of Pres. Wilson and the stato department. In somo istances tho mining and plantation companies have been- strong enough to guard their prop erty and workmen and continue oper ations, but as a rule their business is demoralized and their property in jeopardy.

Tht touch of mutual interest would make the whole world akin. This Is a worhaday world. The much touted idle rich are so few they need not be considered. The neces sity for labor is so general it may be said In a broad way that everybody works. Out of the sweat of its brow the world earns its bread. Those who have accumulated have not been idle, cither in the acquisition or retention of what they have. Riches t-re elu sive and Meeting. It is only by the most arduous effort that they are ob tained and kept. Those who have not provided against the morrow must continue to labor for the sub sistence of the clay.

The United States Is a good bookkeeper and collector. There was no need for a citizens movement in this campaign, and tho so-called movement of that kind has naturally flattened out. There which s g;?nst productive labors of tho world, is no folly so great as that would antagonize one class another. The world must have those who can conceive and direct as well as those who execute. Conception, di rection, capital and execution are co csvsential to the progress uplifting and welfare of mankind. No man can say of any great work. "I dii." this." Thousands t f invisible hands have been employed to create a condition that made it possible-. No class can say.

He hurried to her, and in two days mollified her anger not at his being accused of murder, but at his being drunk. He returned to find his job gone. Tommy North took such catastrophies more philosophically than most. He had filled and lost a dozen jobs in three years of New York. "Easy come, easy go' was his motto he told Ro salie Lo Grange when he called to take away his possessions, removed by her from the Moore house. "I'd like to stay," he told her, "but I want to get the taste of this thing out of my mouth." He sat down on hia trunk and looked depression. And de presslon, somehow, rested ill upon that frank freckled countenance with its shock of unruly red hair. "Wouldn't seem so bad if you didn't hae all the murder company here. But I'm sensitive, I guess. I've lost my job on account of this. I'm a marked man." "Now look a-here, Mr. North," said Rosalie, carefully folding one of his coats. "You don't never want to say that. People ain't marked unless they mark themselves. I've seen the lit tlest things in the world Just hammer people through the floor, and I've seen the biggest scandals lived clean down. It's all in the way you face it. If you're afarld, and act like you're afraid, then you're gone. Just treat it like it hadn't happened. That's the way." "It wouldn't have ruined my young reputation entirely," pursued Tommy North, giving way to his depression now that he had a sympathetic lis tener, "if I hadn't Indulged in a little extra illumination that night.

When he heard the bell peal out the first night he asked the villagers wheer it was and who rang it. "Wo do not know," they said. "We have looked long and faithfully, by day and by night. But we have never been able to find it." "I will find it," said the king's son. "Indeed, we shall be happy if you can," answered the villagers. So he started forth one morning Just as the sun peeped over the high hilltops. He took with him THREE CHILDREN! "Why do you take children with you?" asked the villagers, in surprise. "Because, my dear people," he said, "the good spirits must help us in this quest, and they love the children be cause the children nearly always lovet them and believe in them." So the children went with the king's son in search of the great bell! First they came to the forest where the Owl sat by the hollow of the big tree. He listened totheir story'- He heard them say they were looking for the bell. But he only blinked again; cocked his head on one side again and looked knowingly into tho hollow of ihe big tree. "Not there," said the king's son, after examining the hole in the tree. "The Owl is silent because he does not want to show his ignorance. It is may from the visits of his Lady of Sorrows and of her little golden girl comrade. The next day an aviator accomplish ed something new in the advertising annals of the air. He eloped by aero plane. It is true that he had no need of eloping, the family-in-law being as willing as his actress-bride. The young couple merely chose that meth od as a way of starting prosperously on the road of life. But the news papers, in view of this dazzling picture-story, inquired not too closely re garding motives. And scarcely had news of this event given way to Im pressions of special writers, when a train went over a trestle in Connecti cut. By the time the papers had fin ished with this, the Hanska case had dwindled to two-inch items, single head. The district attorney delayed, the grand jury delayed, tho police de layed, while the forces of Martin Mc Gee combed New York and New Eng land for evidence bearing upon tho life and career of Lawrence Wade. But one more glimpse of Lawrence before we leave him; and here let me quote Inspector McGee. Entering his private office in a state of suppressed irritation bordering on fury, the In spector met his doorman.
