While the business man is confined to his desk in the city, the telephone keeps him in touch with wife and family, though they may be many miles away, summering at some pleasant resort. During his own vacation the business.man relies upon the tele phone. He is free from care, for he knows that he can be reached at one by telphone should important matters require his attention. At the vacation home also, the telephone proves so convenient in arrainging games and outings with friends and ordering sup plies from the distant markets. All this is possible because Bell Telephone service is universal. By the way, have you a telephone? Cumberland, Telephone & Telegraph, Company.

HERALD'S STRAW VOTE SHOWS TAFT IN REAR 69,046 Totes From Masy States Puts Taft Third in the Race. iOVERNOR WILSON IN LEAD Wilson laceives 30,361, Roosevelt 20,748 and Taft 13,055.-Roosevelt Takes 12,064 From Taft, and Wilson Takes 5,173. New York, Oct. 12.--The sec ond poll of the New York Herald, which is supporting President Taft, shows Governor Woodrow Wilson decidedly in the lead over Roosevelt and Taft. The Herald devotes five pages to its straw votes which were taken in New York City, New York State, New Jersey, Penn sylvania, Maryland, Delaware, Illinois, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, Michigan, South Dakota, Washington, Idaho, West Vir ginia, Kentucky, Missouri, Ne braska, Indiana, Ohio, Wyoming, Kansas and Oklahoma. The Herald's expert canvass ers have noted 69,046 votes. Of these Governor Wilson has re S ceived 30,261, Roosevelt 20,748 and Taft 13,055. The net Republican loss is 17, 5 358, while the Democrats show a net gain of 5,420, and the So t cialist a net gain of 526. The third term candidate takes 12,064 from Taft; while Wilson gains 6,173 votes from the presi dent. Democratic leaders have di gested the Herald's poll with care and they point out that the prediction of the Roosevelt fol lowers that he would take from the Democratic columns is not carried out. Instead of losing votes to either Taft or Roosevelt, Wilson has gained half of the Republican votes that h a v e changed from 1908. If this per centage should be kept up throughout the country t h e Democrats woulfi carry every State in the Unioh. The Herald bioints out that Taft is gaining strength and that Roosevelt is running behind. The Herald claims that Taft is gaining, notably in the N e w England States. That in the far West there is a swing to wards the President from Roose velt. The Herald states: "But, even with his apparently increased strength, Mr. Taft still appears considerably behind. Governor Wilson's friends say their candidate cannot be de feated. The Bull Moose mana gers, privately expressing no great hope of victory for their candidate, say that they have already insured the defeat of the president "Straw votes aggregating ap hproximately 79,000, taken in twenty-nine States, puts Gov ernor Wilson in first place. They indicate that he is leading in popular support in twenty-three States of the twenty-nine. The Bull Moose leads in five and the president in one-Utah." The Herald further states: "Governor Wilson, according to present indications will carry New York State by a large plu rality. That the candidacy of the Third Termer has split the SRepublican party almost in two and for the first time in many years, a Demnocratic candidate for the presidency will lead in e the counties north of ;Manhattan SIsland are indicated by a careful canvass by Herald correspond Sents in every section of the S~tate. "There is nq indication of a break among Democratic farm ers. At this time there appears to be no shift possible which would jeopardize Mr. Wilson's chances. He seemingly needs to hold only what he has, and de -sertions, should they reach any formidable size, will be offset by a rush of old line Republicans to his support. "Political sentiment in Albany, and up-state, judged by surface sentiment indicates the success, of Governor Wilson through the division of the Republican party. In some ditricts in eastern New York, the progressive party is strong, but at present it is be t lieved the third termer will run third." YES, THERE WILL BE A PARADE. Barnum and Bailey Will Also Present Great Spectacle of "Cleopatra." When the Barnun and Bailey greatest show on earth visits Opelousas on Thursday, Oct. 31, it will present a street parade on absolute new lines. In no part icular will this parade be like those of the past. Before the circus began its season it promised a surprise in way of street processions. It announced that it would present a pagnent three times the length of 'any other and costing ten times as much. It is now fulfill ing that promise to the letter. The open-air spectacle presents three years' work. The best artists from Italy and France made the designes for the vari ous vehicles, the costumes and fantastic trappings. The best " property and spectacle builders and master artisans of the great theatres of Eroupe put those de s signs into execution. They i worked night and day for three - years in the workshops of the show in England. When the bills for all this labor were turn ed in to the management they amounted to over $1,000,000. But the result is worth it. The parade is beautifnl beyond des Scription. It is a parade of ten t thousand wonders and novelties. It has great value as a world's exposition. It presents all types B of the human race, together with a all of their costumes, tapestries, - banners, flags, weapons, statu ary and paintings, carriages of state, mythology and idols. A complete street menagerie is dis played in openr dens. There are herds of camels, dromedaires and t elephants and 700 horses. The t characteristic music of the " world's peoples is represented by 3 brass bands, barbarian orches I tras, tom-tom players, weird pip B ers, chanters, dervishes, casta - net ballets and operatic choruses. For the children there are fete day and kirmiss scenes, fairyland tableaux, depicting all the char acters from Mother Goose, Alice in Wonderland, the Arabian Knights, Water Babies and Rob Sinson Crnsoe. The tapestry and rugs are from Turkey and Persia. - The costumes are from France. , The laces are from Ireland. The r scarfs, banners and flags are B from Japan. The floats, wag B ons, palanquins, rickshas, how dahs, palaces and thrones are made of the finest woods, carved by hand and burnished with pure gold. The harness is silver mounted. Zebras, llamas, camels and el ephants do the work of horses. There are 1,280 men women and children in the line. The show grounds of this big show are a city in themselves. Here will be found an immense dynamo plant, generating power for all kinds of shops and sup plying current for 7,000 electric globes, ares and beacons. There is also a postoffice, where mail is received every day from all parts of the world. The show carries its own barbers, dentists, law yers, doctors, detectives and mas ter mechanics. It has a hotel Iand dining-room, where 4,000 meals are cooked and eaten every day in the week. The train that pulls the circus from city to city is more than a mile in length. It travels in a single season about 40,000 miles, making stops at 200 different cities. One entire section of the train is needed to transport the vast equipment of the spectacle "Cle opatra," which opens the per formance in the main tent.
