Under each puny name will be print ed a circle. If you desire to vote for all the candidates on one ticket and none of the candidates on the other, a cross in the circle under the party name for whose candidates you wish to vote will suffice, and your vote will be counted for all the candi dates on that ticket. If. however, you desire to "split" the tickets, vot ing lor some candidates on one and others on the other, the safest way is to mark a cross opposite the name of each candidate, on either ticket, for whom you wish to vote, disre garding the lave circle at the top of the ticket. Another method, ami the one concerning which instruc tions will appear at the top of the ballot, is to mark the cross in the circle at the too of the ticket on which the majority of your favorites appear, then marking crosses at the right of the names of the candidates on the other ticket for whom you wish to vote.

She has been educated In the best schools and colleges of the old Fast and the new West. "In the mystic splendor of her dark eye; lies th" history of her be loved country, and as she pictures in the poetic language of her Oriental race the story of her early life in Palestine, one realizes her capacity for friendship, and her influence is not only contagious but lingers long in the minds of her hearers." Thus speaks the San Francisco Chronicle of Princess Haider, who is to give "Under Syrian Stars'* at the United Presbyterian church Sunday evening at. 7:30. The costumes worn by the Prin cess before her audiences are of royal color of the ancient Queensland. made by the girls of Damascus after the style of her noble ancestors Some of them have been in the fam ily for over 100 years.
