The majority of the people of the state will select their congressional candidates from among five nominees. These are Burton L. French, Addison T. Smith, Perry Mitchell, E. M. Pugmire and P. Monroe Smock. Concerning the first named, there are few who can find fault. The record of Congressman French has been such as to entitle him to a renewed, vote of .confidence and his election is generally assured. Besides being the Republi can nominee he has the indorsement of the Progressives. Concerning the second candidate named, there is no one that seriously contends that Addition Smith would anywhere near represent the progressive views of the peo ple of Idaho. For something like a quarter of a century he has hold to the public teat grabbed while a non-resident of the state, and during the entire time he has never had anything but a constructive residence within the state—a residence that would never have been gained even con structively, perhaps, except for the exigencies of politics which often compelled him to seek the confines of the state. The private secretary and apt pupil of Senator Heyburn, he has recently announced his political platform which is one that Senator Heyburn, himself, might an nounce with perfect propriety. In words Mr. Smith says he is progressive; in words Senator Heyburn says like wise. As matter of fact Mr. Smith is exactly the kind of a Republican that Mr. Taft is, that Senator Heyburn is, that the Boise Statesman is. Moreover, before the pri maries at which he was nominated, he declared in a letter that was made public that he stood upon the national and state platforms of his party and that he had no use for any candidate who held political views beyond or differ ent from his platforms. That fixes the views of Mr. Smith, and makes him an unavailing candidate for progressive voters. To elect him and French at the same time would be to nullify the voting power of the state in the national house of representatives, just as the voting power of the state is now nullified in the United States senate. On the Democratic side both candidates have made a record which speaks for them and their views. One of them, Mitchell, has a record in the state senate of this state, not exceeded by any reactionary Republican in the most reactionary senate the state has ever had. Pugmire also is reactionary, but it must be confessed that in com parison with Mitchell, Pugmire is almost a Socialist in the advanced ideas that he holds. Pugmire and Mitchell stood faithfully shoulder to shoulder in protecting and defend ing the Oregon Short Line and kindred interests, but in all matters relating to the moral and social justice progress of the state, the two men parted company. On all matters of reactionary nature, Mitchell did the voting that Senator Day would liked to have done, but which he frequently feared to do. Day, Mitchell and Mac beth formed a triumvirate of Democratic standpatism whose record, by comparison, makes even Heyburn stand out as a radical progressive. If there was any measure designed in the interests of the common people of the state, or calculated to advance the morals of the state that Mitchell or Macbeth supported, it must have been through accident and not by design or intention. In all these mat ters, they clearly followed the lead and suggestion of Day, although that senator more frequently sought cover, knowing that the votes of the other two were sufficient to accomplish the purpose he desired. Both Day and Mitchell came to the state senate pledged to the enactment of a railroad commission. Day, Mitchell, Macbeth and Pugmire all voted to kill such a measure. Mitchell, Macbeth and Pugmire voted at all time adversely *to the measure. Day, whenever the vote was put up to him directly upon the bill, regarding his pledges at home, voted for the bill, but on the final vote that really killed it, which vote was to indefinitely postpone the measure, Dav voted with the enemies of the bill and it was killed. This record will be found at pages 231,232 and 233 of the senate journal of the eleventh session. Again when the railroad commission question came up the second time in the shape of a house resolution propos ing a constitutional amendment so that the people might have an opportunity to say for themselves whether or not they desire a railroad commission, it was Day, Mitchell, Macbeth and Pugmire who led the opposition which killed that resolution by referring it to the corporations commit tee, upon which there was but one friend to the measure, and where it was allowed to die. That record is found at page 252 of the senate journal. But the best way to show the utter reactionary tend encies of these Democratic senators is to show their vote upon the various progressive'measures presented to a leg islature which was not by any means noted for its progres sive views. The following constitute a few of the meas ures: Th» Search and Belxur« bill. For the bill. Day, Against It, Mitchell and Macbeth. Exouaed. Pugmire. The Primary Bill. Opposed. Mitchell.

Condemning Democratic National Heute Representatives for Keeping Pledge to Reduce Tariff. For the resolution, Mitchell, Macbeth, Day Against It, Pugmire. For Equalizing Taxation of Mining Property. Macbeth. Absent. Mitchell. Opposed, Pugmire, Day, The above is only a partial list of important votes taken by these Democratic members of the state senate, all of whom have been honored and recognized by their party since, while all progressive Democratic members of the same body are now in retirement. The record shows that Mitchell and Macbeth were always ready to oppose every forward movement while Day stood with them whenever his vote was necessary and without exception with his support and influence although he frequently voted in op position to the wav he worked. Pugmire was ahvavs to be depended wpon to oppose any measures calculated to restrain the special interests, but he supported all meas ures calculated to improve and protect the morals. The whole outfit, however, is thoroughlv reactionary. This is the reason why the Progressives of the state de termined that it would be absolutely necessary to name a candidate for congress. They indorsed French on his record and presented for the second place P. Monroe Smock, a man whose sympathies have always been with the common people among whom his lot is east. He is a farmer and fruitgrower of Canyon county, a man of great learning and an orator of considerable ability. He will not only do credit to the state as a member of congress hut he will exert his influence and cast his vote for measures calculated to better protect the masses of the people from further infringements upon their rights by the special interests. L The Sunday Chit-Chat By Ruth Cameron. m HE newest beauty cure direct from Parts Is the hot milk diet; It Is being successfully used In several "Milk Cure Sanitari ums" In the east, where from one to three hundred dollars Is charged for the treatment. This can be taken at home with the some good results It one will only persevere In carrying out the Instructions. It Is claimed by these sanitariums that a persistent milk diet will cure every known disease except organic heart trouble, consumption and cancer not excepted. Everyone knows what a clear pink complexion all chil dren have and It Is generally ascribed to their simple milk diet. In the case of one damsel I know who was all "beautiful bones" a gain of seven pounds in the first two weeks of the treatment resulted, while another pa tient was able to put on 30 pounds In five weeks. I saw a girl the other evening, re cently back from taking the new "cure," and I scarcely recognized her she was so transformed, and she as sured me all her friends were remark ing the same thing. Her complexion, which had always been rough and muddy had the clear pink bloom of a peacb her former bony neck was plump a partridge and all the ugly "salt cellars" had vanished; In fact, the angular line» of her whole figure were replaced by rounded curves. "I tell you this hot milk cure beats all the cosmetics In the world for giv ing on» a perfect complexion," she ex claimed proudly. "I've experimented with wretched lotions and face creams for years, but this, I assure you, Is all natural—It won't come off," giving her pinky eheek a vigorous rub. "Besides I am so well and healthy that I feet Ilka a now creature. Talk about gain ing In weight! Ho! milk Is certainly the greatest flesh gainar In the world! At the sanitarium they told me milk contains every element needed for the building up of the human body, beside 1>elng more easily assimilated than any other food, and I could talk all night on the virtues of hot milk." The milk must never be taken cold but well heated to the boiling point (not boiled). Cold milk disagrees with many people and makes them bilious, but hot milk can be taken by anyone with the most wretched kind of di gestive apparatus. The reason for this Is easy to see. for one Is able to drink cold milk hastily, so that It lies In the stomach In a hard, solid. Indigestive mass. Hot milk requires time to drink It must he sipped slowly and each particle is thi s well mixed with gastric juice before it reached the stomach. Of course It is essential that the milk be the very purest and best you can obtain. Milk contains so much water that In drinking it you are getting quantities of the best ''distilled water" [n your system which will wash out all impurities, while the malt sugar will create fine healthy flesh on every part of -the body, nourishing you so well that your complexion Is bound to take on clear rose leaf tints. If you eat fruit at breakfast, don't lake milk at that time as it will surely disagree with the acid; substitute a cup of cocoa or chocolate Instead, which is fattening and nutritious. The noon luncheon should be entirely of hot milk, three or four glassfuls being slowly sipped, tasted and enjoyed and some reudy prepared cereal with cream may be also taken If you like. At four in the afternoon a couple of glasses are taken and one with the dInner at night. On retiring another glass of hot milk will make you sleep dreamless and refreshing, thus making your three pints, the average per day that most people can take and really enjoy Of course those who go on the Strictly milk diet for a few weeks, ,at ng no other food» at all, can take from three to four quart» a day.

Consider well the Influences of your friends and hold fast to the better ones. Those born today will have the qual ities which make for success finan cially and In public life. They will be attractive and. though unsteady In youth, will see their folly and turn their minds to more Important things. essarlly more or less tentative, and tho mark of a well-disciplined mind Is moderation. We cannot wisely make extravagant claim» and dogmatic as sertlons. Intelligent men. therefore, whatever their opinion as to the merits of the proposed "minimum waje for working women," will admire the dis cretlon manifested In the Chicago Tribune's discussion In favor of tho proposition, when l'. admits that "the minimum wage is somewhat exiler! mental," and confesses that "we do not know whether such a law will work." This is Incomparably more tolerant and, we think. Incomparably more sane, than Woodrow Wilson's dogmatic assertion that such a law would not work In favor of the working women at all, but would only be taken advan tage of by employers to push the com pensation of their women employes down to a minimum living wage. 1 do not know that any formulator or supporter of the Progressive party s plank on "minimum wage for working women" ever anticipated or Intended that It should be construed as favoring a law tfiat would permit the depressing of compensation to the level of a mini mum living wage. Kather, 1 -think, there was and Is contemplated by Pro gressive leaders the passing of a law providing for compensation to' work Ing women, for a full day's work, of decidedly more than "Just enough to live on." Why, a minimum living wage, so far as food Is concerned, If one lives (as one can live) on cracked wheat cornmea! and herbs, need not be over 10 cents a day. Most assuredly that Is not what the advocates of the mini mum wage law anticipate. Yet that Is just what a rigorous and unrestrained application, maugre A. F. of L. and I. W. W., of Woodrow Wilson's hypo thesis would lead to. It Is Interesting to observe, in this connection, that the objection of dog matist Wilson to the minimum wage Idea Is Identical with the objection of the Imposslblllstlc group of Socialists to this and to other humanitarian pro gressive measures. Say they, the mas ters of Industry, either by legnl or by extra-legal means, will merely readjust wages, hours, and prices so as to shift the burden from themselves to the workers and to the consumers. This objection, whe'her voiced by Woodrow Wilson or by the Impossl hllistic group of Socialists, arises from the same source, namely; a morbid distrust of legal means of accomplish ing desirable results. A law providing for a "minimum wage for working women" would most certainly, "Interfere" with thos, who do not choose to .'o as society thinks they should do and demands that they shall do. Most laws, In cluding the criminal laws, nre open to the same doctrinaire objection. But the successfulness of any other law de pends on the unanimity with which It Is supported (or at least tolerated) by the dominant power In the state. In a democracy or a republic, where the domtnunt power Is un alert and en lightened public opinion, such a law will undoubtedly work beneficially from the day it Is enacted. For an alert and enlightened public opinion Is a force that none but the most "pucidln-head ed" of the "masters of Industry" will long oppose. ROLLA MYER. Horseshoe Bend, Oet. 3, 1912. A Buhl 8traw Vota. Evening Capital News: The States man has given much apace of late to the optimism of the gentleman "with the Judicial mind" and large girth who does not believe the people capable of governing themselves, and says so, "Republican Strength Grows." "Strong Trend Noted Over Country to the U. Cl P„" "President Pleased," "Party Leaders Becoming Convinced That Taft Will Win," "Republicans Rally ing to the Standard In all Parts of the State,'' and other captions loo numer ous to mention here, and two or three interviews from Twin Falls county people have been given telling about the party going to poll Its normal vote, etc., gives pith to a straw vote for president taken at a meeting of Buhl ladies. Between 40 and 50 ladles met on Oct. 3 at the country home of Mrs. D. W. Howard, when a straw vote for presi dent was proposed and taken wtth the following results: William H.

Viola, LIII 7 , etc., special chapters were devoted, because their use is well nigh universal, and none have used them more freely than the poete. But there rre many flower names; pretty as thoae and at full of sweet significance. Few of us that do not know and love some "Daisy," though Its use as a name may be an affection of a few centuries only. Shakespeare did not recognise It as such, but the flower he Introduced In Hamlet. Ophelia gives the Queen a daisy to signify "that her knight and fickle love ought not to ex' pect constancy In her husband." The allusion In obvious. The name slgnl fies Day's eye, because the plant .closes Its pinky lashes and goes to sleep at sunset, while In the morning It expands its petals to the light. Daisy in Literature. There are many sentimental verses devoted to Daisy and many Daisies i.gure In the song's and couplets of the day. but It remained for Henry Jamos to Introduce the name into modern polite literature. His novel, "Daisy Nlller," is much admired. Among American Daisies the most noted was I.ady Curzon, of Kedneston, formerly vlce-reine of India. Though named Mary Victoria, everybody called her Daisy when she was young Miss Leiter. She was a daughter of the late Levi Leiter, the Chicago capital ist, nnd a sister of Josept >e!tcr. The daisy Is Daisy's emblem and "Freshness" her motto. Olive the Flov/er Name. Another famous name Is Olive or Olivia. The olive slgnlfiea pea e and Joy. The historical Olive branch Is the nnme's emblem and "Peace" Its senti ment. The male name, Oliver, was horn by many famous English knights of old, but censed to he regarded us a lit ap pellation for an emblem after "Old Noll" (Cromwell) taught them their sadly needed lesson. Some authorities have tried to con nect the feminine name Olive with Olaf, one of the ancient Gods of the Teutons, but there seems to be little ground for such a connection. Famous Olives. Mrs. Schreiner is one of the Olives who made the name famous. Twen ty-seven years ngo she came from Cape Ton n with her book "The Story of an African Farm," ar.d published It under the pseudonym Ralph Iron. It had a tremendous sale and the Identity of the young authoress who was but 20 at tho time was quickly estab lished. Olivin L. I.angdon was the wife, councilor and friend of Mark Twain. She was an Elmira girl, highly gifted. The great humorist set her a lasting monument In his letters. He called her "Libby." The Name in Literature. Shakespeare Introduced Olivia In Twelfth Night. Olivia Is one of the pleasing figures of tho Vicar of Wakefield, by Gold smith. Another is the principal char acter In Cowleys, "Bold Stroke for a Husband." Still another we find In Goldsmith's comedy, "The Good Na tural Man.'' A less attractive Olivia. In fact a treacherous creature is the character so named In Wycherly's comedy, "The Plain .»cater." Rhoda One of tho Rose Family. The girl's name Rhoda has become rare of late, but was quite popular with us not so ninny years ago. It was Invented by the ancient Greeks to designate a particular species of roses and its age is attested by the fact that two of the early Christian girl martyrs were named Rhoda. A red rose Is Hhnda's emblem, her sentiment Beauty and Prosperity. Iris and Daphne. Iris Is a flower name, huving quite a vogue in English high life. It Is the name of the Greek goddess of the rainbow, "the swift-footed messenger of the Gods." Of late It has got Into semi-royalty, one of the granddaugh ters of the second duke of Cambridge being eo called. Miss Iris Fitzgerald and her sister. Daphne, are cousins of the king of England, ■ ly)t have no standing at court. Daphne was the name of a nymph of Greek mythology, metamorphosed Into a bay tree when running away from her lover.

SUNDAY STORY The Power of Luck By BENJAMIN BERKHALTER "Can yon direct me to the works of the Loon Gulch Gold Mining com pany?" I asked of a ragged man, at the same time drawing rein to receive his reply. "Bight around the spser of ths mountain; take the right band road after crossln' the creek. You can't misa tt It's the only lot o' bnlldln's there Is around there. Fine property. Mr." "So I have been told. I have also beard tbat It was ballt ap on a strik ing piece of luck." "Yon bet; the goldarnedest Inch tbat aver happened to a prospector." "What was Itr "Why Hawley, he come ont yera a matter of fifteen year ago, far to see If be couldn't make n fortan' by a short rond. I been tiyln' to do that myaelf aver since I waa twenty-five year old, and just look at me—my clothes In tatters and nothin' In my stomlck. Where one man strikes payin' dirt thousands spend their lives workln* fur nothin'. Ten year ago If you'd 'a' seen Hawley you'd 'a' seen a man jlst about like me. He waa wan derin' about yore with a pick and shovel on hla shoulder, ragged, nothin' In bis atomick and nothin' In bis pocket "I'm wrong there; he had ten pounds o' bloatin' powder, and that was all the property he had in the world ex cept bis pick and shovel. He had a pair o' shoes on bis feet, but there won't no soles on 'em. I'm wrong ag'ln about hla property. He had one thing more, and tbat waa a magni fy In' glass be used to examine quarts with to see If there was any gold In It "One day he was walkin' around over there where he could see up the gulch. He'd been to Antelope, where the post office was then, and bad got a letter from bis wife In the east sayln' she'd been turned out o' the bouse she'd been livin' In, the children was sick for want o' proper food and the bottom had dropped out o' everything. Hawley was clean discouraged. He thought he'd find a place so hidden that he'd never be found and would kill himself. He hadn't nothin' to kill himself with ex cept the blastin' powder, and be hadn't the good luck to have any matches with him or any other means o' settln' It off. "He walked up the gulch a ways, or rather staggered up it for he was weak from want o' food and discouragement. He left the road by a path and,' cornin' to the end of the path, walked on no where. Cornin' to n lonely place among some trees and bushes, be sat down and tried to think of a way to set oft bis blastin' powder. Purty soon he struck an idea. He hung bis magnlfy ln' glass on a twig and put the powder on the ground so that the focus of the sun's rays would strike It. "But ho didn't want to know Jlst when he was ngoln' to be blown to atoms, so ho moved the powder a few Inches, kcepin' It in the course the fo cused sun spot would take, so's it would pass over the powder after awhile. This would leastways give him time to sny his pra'rs. "When he'd got It fixed so's ttm-xun spot was sure to strike It he lay down a few yards uwny with Ills back to the powder and waited. It warn't a cheer ful condition, was It?" "I should think not," I replied. "I dunno how long Hawley waited. I never hearn. But blmeby there was a big explosion. Hawley didn't know for awhile whether be bad been killed or not. be was so stunned. But be wasn't even hurted. The force o' the explosion was all upwards. "I dunno tt he was disappointed or not. I never heered that nutber. But he rolled over and looked into a hole In the ground made by the explosion. It was jest like a prospector to look lo see what was In the hole Instead o' tblnkln' where be might 'a' been If hla tryln' to kill hlsself hadn't failed. Then he looked for his magnlfyln' glass.
