THE DEMOCRATIC PLATFORM.
i
i It is generally recognized that a change !
has come over the voters of this country’ i
in regard both as to candidates and plat- J
forms, and more especially is it true in I
regard to the platforms. The people !
look to the platform to see what is prom- j
ised to be done by the parties presenting
candidates to see what is to be done if j
the candidates on that ticket are placed j
in charge of the government of the peo- |
pie.
Ever since Mr. Taft became President, i
the people of this nation in loud j
tones have been condemning the Re- j
publican party, and Mr. Taft. They j
have blamed the Republican party for its I
failure and refusal to carry out the |
Chicago platform of four years ago, to j
revise the tariff downward, and they j
have blamed Mr. Taft because he failed 1
to carry out the platform and to make j
good his pledges to the people to reduce
the tariff
So great was the condemnafion of Mr.
Taft that Mr. Roosevelt easily and over
whelmingly defeated him in the pri- ,
maries.
Now the people of this country are I
face to face with another Chicago plat- •
form upon which the same William How- ,
ard Taft is again a candidate for Presi
dent. The platform is one of apologies,
i excuses. explanationsoand evasions, and
' the candidate, if anything, has degener
| ated.
Can the people put any faith in such a
platform and such a candidate, after
their bitter experience of nearly four
years? The people are now face to face |
,i with the Democratic platform and the j
Democratic ticket nominated at Baht- i 1
more. Whatever may be said of the '
f Democratic platform, no sane man, if 1
honest, can say that it is not clear, deft- ’
nite and specific. • :
It is a platform in which every I is ]
dL
• dotted and every Tis crossed. A Dem
ocrat, or a Republican, or any man of [
any party, can read that platform and |
see at a glance just what the Democratic
party promises to do, from the fourth
of next March for four years, if the
people elect Governor Woodrow Wilson ]
I President of the United States. j
|
j That platform contains a specific con- j
tract with the people that if the people j
l elect the Democratic ticket, the Deni- i
ocratic party will do everything that j
j they contract to do in that platform. I
J Not only that, but they nominated a man
; fur President, who believes in all llie
i provisions in the platform, and whose
| high character and record is an all suffi
cient guarantee that he will fulfill to the
! letter, all of his promises.
His record as a reform Governor of j
the State of New jersey, which up to the :
time that he was made Governor was one
ot the most corrupt States in the United
States, has been the surprise and admi
; ration of the whole country, except the
I rascals whom he put out of business.
What Woodrow Wilson has done for
New Jersey as its Governor, Woodrow
Wilson can do for the United States as
| its President.
He not only can, but he will turn the
rascals out, and give the p pie a clean
and honest administration of their gov
ernment.
The platform promises in clear, unmis
takable words, a reduction of the robber
tariff, and especially on the necessaries
of life, so that the people can be able
to get the necessary food and clothing,
and thus be relieved of some of the
grievous burdens of the high cost ol liv
ing which they have borne so long.
File nation wide complaint that has
. been made by the people against the
trusts, is met by a specific promise by
the extermination of all of the trusts, by
' striking that upon which the trusts live,
| namely the platform promises to put all
trust made articles on the free list—that
is to take all of the tariff olf of all the
trust made goods, which will be the
death knell of the trusts.
Then there has been a great and
general complaint by the people, that
many artich s are manufactured in this
country and sold by the trusts to foreign
countries at from thirty to fifty per cent
less than they charge our own people.
1 he Democratic platform clearly prom
ises to repeal the tariff on all such ar
ticles.
It promises to give the people an
economical administration of the gov
ernment, which the people have not had
since Mr. Cleveland was President, bit 1
instead of this the nation has been
cursed by the wildest extravagance in
the history ol the nation. We beg the
people to read and study the Demo
cratic platform and see for themselves
its excellency.
It is long, but it is very clear and dis
tinct both in letter and in spirit. No
party ever adopted a platform and nomi
nated a ticket that could bear a closer
scrutiny than the ticket and the platform
of the Baltimore Convention.

WILSON'S ELECTORAL VOTE.
The World sees tio possibility that the
election of a President will be thrown into
the House ol Representatives.
It will require 266 electoral votes to
choose a President, and 178 must be con
ceded to Gov. W'lson at the outset.
These 178 votes are represented by the
States of Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas,
Florida, Georgia. Kentucky, Louisiana,
. Maryland, Mississippi, Missouri. North
Carolina, Oklahoma. South Carolina,
Tennessee, Texas and Virginia.
That makes it necessary for Gov. Wil
son to win SS out of the remaining 353
electoral votes. Twenty-nine can be
found in New jersey and Indiana, which
are sure to be Democratic. Fifty-two can
be found in New York and Connecticut,
which are reasonably certain to go Dem
ocratic. Nebraska, with 8 votes, would
give Gov. Wilson the necessary majority.
But Democratic prospects are much
brighter that) this. Mr. Bryan carried
Colorado and Nevada in 190 S. Gov. Wil
son is likeiv to carry them this year, witli
the addition of North Dakota. These
three States have 14 electoral votes.
Wilson’s chances in Ohio are better than
Taft’s or Roosevelt’s, and Ohio has 24
votes. Senator Gardner predies that Wil
son will carry Maine, with 6 votes, and I
nobody familiar with political conditions
in that State can regard this as an idle
boast. In addition. Democratic pros
pects in Massachusetts are as good as any
other prospects, and they are anything
but discouraging in Pennsylvania. Alas
j sachusetts has 18 electoral votes and
i Pennsylvania has 38.
Any reasonable calculation based on
| the existence of a Republican party
i would give Wilson more than 300 elec
\ toral votes, but with the Republican party
i shot to pieces it is a question whether the >
warring Taft-Roosevelt forces will save (
: anything of value from the wreck.—N. ’

j THE PEOPLES' VICTORY.
j The vote of the United States Senate
I which declared that William Lorimer's j
1 election to that body vitiated by corrup- ■
j tinn and hence invalid, stood 55 to 28.
The vote which sustained Lorimer’s '
; claim in March last vear was 46—35 Re- ,
< publicans and it Democrats. Of the 40
I who then voted to exclude him 18 were 1
j Democrats and 22 Republicans.
New evidence has had but little to do I
I with this amazing shift from a favoring j
vote to one two-thirds opposed to Lor- •
itner. It was as apparent sixteen
months ago as it is now that he was not i
bv right a Senator. Proof may be piled 1
on proof, but certainty cannot be made I
i more certain.
What lias happened is that the Senate j
I has heard from the people. Only five '•
Senators actually changed their votes on
Lorinter. Ol those who voted for him
_ before and whose terms have expired, i
'not one has secured re-election. Their i
successors and other new men, coming j
with fresh mandates Irom the States. 1
more truly represent the people of the 1
States.
The character of the present vote is
as significant as the numbers. Of the j
little group that stood by Lorimer to the j
end three have already been defeated |
for an ensuing term, two say that they
will not again he candidates and others
will probably retire at the end of their j
present periods of disservice.
Aside from Mr. Tillman, whose emo
tional nature was touched by Lorimer’s j
plea, and a very few others, the men
who voted “no” on Saturday would
damn by their advocacy a better cause.
Senators of the Almighty Dollar, Ste
phenson and Guggenheim and Lippitt, 1

[ Oliver and Crane—lords or lackeys of j
1 Lumber, of Oil, of Steel, ot Copper of j
Paper, of Railroads—they represent not 1
the people but the moneyed interests,
which Lorimer was "put over” to serve. |
The mere roll call reminds a busy na- i
non that Senatorial house cleaning is a
process still incomplete.
1 It is because that the cards were so
| heavily stacked against the people that \
their victory is all the more remarkable, j
I It is because there are other fights Jlike
| this to wage that its winning is so in- j
I spiring. It gives notice that the people '
j do not tolerate and will not knowingly j
\ endure corruption ot the springs of po- j
litical power.—A 'ew )'ork World.
WHY WILSON WILL WIN.
If the Democrats cannot elect Wood
row Wilson they could not elect anybody,
j No Democratic national canvass since
Jackson’s has been inaugurated more au
! spiciouslv. The points of vantage may
j be summarized briefly as follows:
A Democratic year. The people are
! disgusted with the Republican party anil
I eager for a change.
j Disi uption of the opposition. The dif
ferences of the two wings, for the first
time since the Republican party was
| born, are irriconcilable.
An open and honest convention. In
marked contrast with the doings at Chi
cago, there was at Baltimore no arbitrary
action on behalf of one candidate and no
suggestion of bribery in the interest of
another.
Die main issue. At last the line is
sharply drawn between excessive protec
tion and a revenue tarilT.
An unpledged candidate. Nobody pre
tends that Mr. Wilson is under the slight
est obligation to any man or group of
men for his nomination.
Elimination of bossss. So far from
catering to those accustomed to control,
. Mr. Wilson defied them. He had not
hesitated to denounce Mr. Murphy, Mr
Sullivan and Mr. Taggart by name. His
> sole appeal was to public opinion.
• Removal of the blight of Bryanism.
. Mr. Wilson owes nothing to the marplot
who schemed to obtain the nomination
for himself. Nor is lie bound in any way
to recognize the vagaries which for so
1 long have discredited the party in the
t estimation of the country.
Independent support. Almost without
exception the powerful public journals
- have already pledged the exercise of
their utmost endeavors on behalf of the
Democratic standard-bearer.
Moral sentiment The widespread re
vulsion of conscientious citizens against
5 political depravity, which Mr. Roosevelt
l has tried with consummate skill to cap
. italize for his own advancement, now in
sures to the advantage of Gov. Wilson,
to the great relief of millions who dis
- trusted Roosevelt but knew not where
- else to turn.
A vivid personality. Mr. Wilson lias
demonstrated matchless power of eflec
-1 live appeal to the masses generally, and
• to active, enthusiastic, younger men in
I particular. This means that his canvass
t will be surcharged with the same electri
cal. persuasive energy which achieved
1 his nomination.

■ ernes whose tacit recognition has al

son’s election is a virtual certainty.—Har

POLITICAL MATTERS.
>
Mr. Jeremiah Dutrow, a well known
citizen ol Thurmont. has been appointed
1 constable for that town. Mr. Dutrow’s
bond was approved by the Board of
Commissioners and he lias been sworn in
office.
The commissioners ef Washington
county, after a protracted contest, re
elected Dr. J. Eptha E. Pitsnogle, Re
publican, health officer of Washington
county, at a salary of S9OO and expenses.
Dr. D. W. Campbell, also a Republican,
was an aspirant to the office, and got two
votes. Commissioner Bestes. the only
Republican on the board, broke the
deadlock by voting for Dr. Pitsnogle.
A Wilson-Marshall and Lewis Club
was organized in Hagerstown with a
membership of about 2,000 men. These
officers were elected: President, former
lustice Elias B. Hartle; vice-president,
Llovd K. Kaufman; treasurer, former
SlieritV M. Finley Seibert, and secretary!
Harry E. Beachley.
In the July number of the Editorial
Review, there is an article on "An Ex
press Post. Parcel Post and Transport of
the Small Shipment.” by Congressman
David J. Lewis. The article is very ablv
written and the facts set forth are entitled
to consideration.
Mr. George R. Gaither, ol Baltimore,
who was the Republican nominee for
Governor in 1907 declared in favor of
the new third party movement and in
dorsed Colonel Roosevelt as its standard
bearer. Until Mr. Gaither made this an
| nouncement many of his friends believed
that he would support Governor Wilson
as his opposition to Taft.
THE HERALD’S POLITICAL
MAP.
The New York Herald makes a spec
ialty of political prophecy, and. while its
forecasts were shaken a bit by the Roose
velt "Bareback,” for the past thirty years
they have been, as a rule, correct. In the
j first political map of the campaign the :
j Herald concedes Wilson 177 electoral j
votes as “reasonably sure”—that is. the !
‘‘Solid South,” with the exception of!
Maryland and West Virginia, which are
put down as doubtful. There doesn’t ap- j
pear to be any room (or doubt in regard
to Maryland. Among the doubtlul States j
are included New York. Maine, Massa- j
chusetts, Connecticut. New jersey, Ohio, j
I Indiana, Wisconsin, North Dakato, Kan- j
sas, Nebraska, Colorado, New Mexico,
Montana, Idaho, Oregon and Nevada— ■
; 207 in the doubtful column. But in order j
to give Taft a fair start of 155 the Herald
puts California, lowa, Illinois, Minnesota \
\ and South Dakota in the “reasonably i
j sure” Republican column, which is man
ifestly absurd. Whoever carries Califor
nia, it certainly will not be Tuft. New'
lersey and Indiana. Colorado and Ne- '
I braska are regarded as surely Demo- j
j cratic.
1 As there are 522 votes in the Electoral
j College, if the Herald's map is correct,
! Taft will have to get 112 and Wilson 97
! votes from doubtful States. As things
stand now, Taft will Ithve to win more
nearly 200 that cannot at present be
counted as safe for him.—Balto. Sun. |
' Whilst Tatt and Teddy are giving 1
each other hot stuff the good people of
the United States are doing some cool j
thinking. If they should not choose i
another Republican president in the next I
50 years the country would be better off. j
LaFollette is having more brain
storms. He continues to insist that
Roosevelt tell how much money u'as
spent in his effort to capture the Chicago |
Convention and where it came from.

BALTIMORE LETTER.
*
1
The Democratic party of Maryland is
j prepared to inaugurate its fight for Wil
: son and Marshall and for a solid Demo- j
i cratic delegation in the next House of
Representatives. In every precinct in i J
j the State the party is solidly and har- *■
j moniously united and the workers are
\ merely awaiting for the firing of the first f
, gun. Because of the heat and because 1
j the people have been wading through j '
the political contests almost in- j <
j cessantly for the past eighteen |
I months, and most of the leaders believe i '
that the battle should not be started f
until September ist, but when it does
start there will be more vim and force s
in the Democratic fight this year than
there has been for many years. This to 1
a great extent will be due to the eilthu- i
siasm that exists in the ranks. The i
Democrats see victory ahead and they
are ready to march on and seize it. I
The party leaders and regular workers I
have already done their best in every
fight and thev cannot be expected to do ’
more this year. But it is a fact, and one
that means much in a political contest, i
that hundreds of young Democrats will .
take an active part in this fight and the i
young men can accomplish much in a ,
political contest. Regulars always work i
for and support a ticket; they know
nothing else; they may be defeated in a |
primary contest or a convention, but
thev always acquiesce to the rule of the
majority and loyally support the ticket,
irrespective of their attitude in the pri
mary or the convention. This is partic
ularly true of the party leaders in Mary
land. Thev have stooil firm and solid
behind their candidates in the past when
those who are now crowing the loudest
over the ticket, bolted and openly knifed
the party's candidates. But the workers
sav that this is not the time to discuss or
agitate these old cases. They want the
help of every man who believes in the
party and its principles at present and
w ill cheerfully welcome him into the fold.
Everybody will, however, work in con
junction with the regular leaders and
precinct workers They can not super
sede them and neither can they expect
to dictate the methods of conducting the
1 campaign. Their advice will be sought
and when it is good advice it will be
accepted. When it is not they will be
shown the faults in it.
j The suggestion has been made that
Governor Wilson should open his cam
paign in Baltimore and his Iriends heart
ily indorse the plan. Of course the Gov
ernment will be formally notified of his
nomination at Ins home at Sea Girt.
1 The candidates have always been noti
fied at their homes, but it is asserted that
the Governor should make his first real
: campaign speech in Baltimore, the city
' in which he was nominated. This sug
! gestion will be laid before Governoi
Wilson and his campaign managers and
’ his Maryland friends hope that he will
' accept it. Baltimore would give the
New Jersey Governor a rousing recep
-1 tion; one that would encourage him
; during the entire campaign. The meet
' ing could be held in tile Filth Regiment
I Armory in which the National Conven
tion was held. Should Governor Wil
' son make his first speech here the
' armory would not be near large enough
to hold the crowd that would want to
■ see and hear him, notwithstanding the
armory is one of the largest halls in the
country.
The break in the Republican party in
Maryland is complete. The division be
when the Taft and Roosevelt forces
! is as widens that which, in the past has
separated the Democratic party from the
Republican party. In fact there is more
personal bitterness between the leaders
i of the two Republican camps than there
has ever been between the leaders of the
two great parties. While the Democratic
and the Republican leaders of Maryland
have always fought one another with all
of the power and force at their command,
but seldom did they resort to anv per
sonal attacks. At present the Taft and
Roosevelt leaders of Maryland are busy
heaping abuse upon one another. Noth
ing is too harsh or unkind for them to
say against one another. Following the
example of their "peerless leader.’’
the Roosevelt men in Maryland are call
ing their Taft brethren “thieves,” ‘’trai
tors,” and the like.
So bitter is the feeling between the
opposing Republican factions that the
Roosevelt men contemplate nominating
Congressional candidates in several dis
tricts. Thev have their eyes on the
Third and Fifth Congressional Districts,
and should they enter candidates it
would mean that the Democratic candi
dates would sweep them.. Roosevelt
or no Roosevelt candidate the Demo
crats will carry the Third District, and it
is conservatively estimated that Con
gressman George Konig, will be re- '
elected by over 2.000 majority. Should
a third candidate enter the race every '
vote that lie received would come from
the Republican State Senator Albert M.
Sproesser. and this would mean Kotug
by several thousand more majority.
The campaign will be managed by '
the State Central Committee, which 1
under the law is the only body that 1
can manage it. The members ol the I
committee were elected by the people for
the purpose of handling the party ma- ;
chinery and conducting campaigns.
From the State end, the fight will be in
charge of General Murray Vandiver,
Chairman of the State Central Commit
tee, while in Baltimore City Mr. Daniel 1
J Loden, Chairman of the State Central ;
! Committee, of Baltimore, will have j 1
! charge of the local headquarters. The 1
! members of the committee, together with I
j all of the workers will be directed by I 1
; them, who will also be in constant
! touch with the regular party leaders who 1
j are not members of the committee. 1
I Other precinct committees outside of the 1
regular organization workers may be '
! formed, but these will also work under <
I the State Central Committee, which is
: the only body in the State that has the <
power to appoint auxilirsy committees. 1
! The leaders are ready to manage the 1
: light and the people have the utmost con- '
fidence in them. It must also be said j ’
that the friends ot the candidatea are anx- , '
iotts and willing for the regular party ma- j 1
chinery to assume absolute charge of 1 1
Governor Wilson’s campaign. 111 tact I
several of them who were in Baltimore !
■ just alter the convention, conferred with 1 i
j the State and city leaders declared that 1
the campaign would rest entirely upon \ <
their shoulders. They and nobody else ! 1
will be held responsible for the results • 1
in Maryland. All of the literature, tons i c
of which will be sent here, will be dis- ; 1
■ tributed under the committee’s super- ;
vision, and it will also have charge of all •
j ol the mass meetings.

Of his work the Si‘ says: "Nallin hustled
the players along and his decisions were
better than some handed out recently.”
Ray Morgan, the former Frederick
player, now one of the leading members
of the Washington Climbers ol the Ameri

win of his team over the Cleveland Naps.
Morgan, out ol four times up. hit safely
twice, one a double and the other a triple.

Sweeping Reduction in Express
Rates Ordered.
The interstate commerce commission
has ordeied sweeping reductions in the
rates charged by express companies.
It has also ordered far-reaching re
forms in the regulations and practices of
the companies and has also imposed
upon them a uniform system of rate
making.
The order ot the commission, while
not final, is subject only to a hearing to
be given the express companies on Octo
ber 9. The commission calls upon the
companies to show cause at that time
why the changes in rates and practices
should not immediately go into effect.
The decision of the commission will
cause a general reduction in rates on
small packages of about 20 per cent.
While the average reduction is only 20
percent., the reductions taken altogether
range from 10 to 50 per cent.
An important requirement of the com
mission is that the companies shall adopt
a ' istinctive tag or label which will clear
ly show whether a package has been pre
paid or not. In the event of doubt the
receiver of a package will not be com
pelled to pay and the express companies
will no longer have the benefit of thou
sands of dollars that have flowed into
their treasuries through double charges.
111 short the decision of the commission
revolutionizes the express business in
this country.

No Harmony in Old Montgomery.
At a largely attended conference of j
leading members of the Republican party !
al Rockville recently it was clearly dem- I
onstrated that they could not harmonize ;
as to the Presidential question Indica- j
lions are that they will support the nomi- j '
nee for Congress and Judgeship.
The conference was called by the State !
Central Committee for the county to en
able Charles D. Wagaman, candidate tor ;
Congress, and Arthur D. Willard, candi- ■
date for Judge, 10 meet the party work
ers and the invitations were distributed
without regard to Presidential prefer- \
ences.
Mr. Wagaman addressed the confer
ence briefly expressing gratification at j
the large attendance and the attitude of
those present toward the Congressional 1
nominee. In the PresidentiaKprimaries
Mr. Wagaman supported Colonel Roose
velt, but in his remarks he carefully J
avoided all reference to the Presidential
contest further than to announce that lie
would make his position clear later.
Mr. Willard also addressed the gather- 1
ing. He said he would get more than , ;
the normal Republican majority in Fred- j 1
erick county and he declared that he ; \
would carry the Democratic city of j ;
Frederick. He said, however, that he
expects the contest to be close and urged
that steps be taken to instruct the illiter- ,
ate voters how to propel ly mark their .
ballots.

Roosevelt Didn’t Permit Suit.
Former Attorney-General Bonaparte
now explains that he “had forgotten the
exisence” of the letter from President
Rooseeelt directing him “not to file the '
suit (against the Harvester Trust) until I ■
hear from you.” And he adds: “I did
after receiving it just exactly what 1 f
would have done if I hadn’t leceived it— 1
that is to say, I completed the depart- \ s
mental inquiry and then reported to the i r
President that I thought the suit ought to | s
be brought.” But the suit against the ; I
Harvester trust was not filed. Mr. ;
Roosevelt did dot permit it. i r

STATE NEWS.
The Pythian Castle at Hagerstown has
been renovated at a cost of ji,ioo.
Anxiety is felt as to the whereabouts of
Joseph Hopkins, of Elkton, who disap- |
peared from his home on Sunday night j
last and who has not been heard of by {
his family since. j
Dorsey Gassawav, cashier of the j
Farmers’ National Bank, of Cumberland,
sustained a mangled leg as the result of
an accident to his motor boat a few days
ago in Spa Creek. He is under the care
of the physicians at the Emergency
Hospital at the present time. Accom
panied by his wife, Mr. Gassaway was
leaving from Boucher’s boat house for a
short trip. He had started the engine
and in attempting to avoid other boats
was struck on the back of the head and
pitched head long into the boat by a wire |
stretched by two large poles. In the fall
his left leg was caught in the fly wheel
of the engine. The ligaments of the
calf were torn and a small bone was
broken.
Railroad Accident.
A recent dispatch from Westminster,
says that six persons, two very seriously,
were iniured in a butting collision be
tween work train No. 601, and the
west bound local freight No. 301, on the
Western Maryland Railway, a few days
ago.
The wreck occurred at a small bridge
east of Spring Mills Station, and one
mile west of Westminster Four cars
were derailed and engine No. 313 tum
bled partly over the embankment. The
injured are:
Engineer C. H. Lynn, of Hagerstown;
legs scalded and sprained.
Brakeman C. E. Durst, of Hagers
town; leg sprained and head cut.
Engineer C. R. Kapp, of Baltimore;
head slightiy cut and body bruised.
Fireman C. B. Clark, of Baltimore;
leg slightly injuri d
Fireman C. R. SLk, of Hagerstown;
injured Internally, and probably ser
iously.
Brakeman C. G. Westhafer, of Hag
erstown; legs broken.
“Yellow Bandits.”
The Frederick packers who have had
their business curtailed by the with
drawal of the Swift, Cuhady and Armour
cars, must share the same feeling as the
California and Florida fruit growsrs. who
call the refrigerator cars the “yellow
bandits.” When the Frederick butchers
began to cut into the business of the
Beef Trust in Washington and other
cities, they were calmly informed, ac
cording to the dispatches, that they
could not have any more refrigerator
cars, as the big packers needed them.
That is the way that the private car
nuisance works. When ,the railroads
do not furnish an ample refrigerator
service, the shipper is left to the tender
mercies of the car owners, and he can
not expect any service if he competes
with them. Rebates and other transpor
tation abuses are prohibited by law, but
the privately owned car lines continue to
flourish.—Baltimore American.
Husband and Wife.
Husband and wife are in partner
ship. But most wives are so unselfish,
so devoted to their charge, that they
waive what they would be justified in
claiming as their right, in the finan
cial reckoning. There are, no doubt,
extravagant women whose self-indul
gence involves in silken meshes more
than their husbands can earn. They
are the exception. Most women so
prudently conserve and manage the
household exchequer that they Inex
plicably save what the other member
of the partnership is able to earn.
The savings-bank account would be a
minus quantity If they did not strive
and plan. The richest man would be
reduced to beggary if he were to at
tempt to defray the debt incurred by
what —in a thousand ways—his wife
is worth to him. —Philadelphia Ledger.
Poultry Hints.
Hens suffer from overeating as much
as from starving.
Even a warm rain is bad for the
very voting chicks and arrangements
should be made so they can get to
shelter quickly when the showers come.
If many chicks are raised it is a good
plan to keep a large kettle near the poul
try house, in which the drinking vessels
can be boiled at least once a week. A
handful of common soda thrown into the
water will help.
At the first sign of droopiness in a
chick separate it from the rest of the
flock and if it does not quickly recover
use the axe and burn the body.
The Social World.
Mrs Frederick VV. Cramer gave a
euchre party at her home on East Second
street in honor of her niece. Miss Joseph
ine Bali, of St. Louis, Mo. The first
prize was won by Miss Margaret Ford
and the second by Miss Alice Dean.
Among those present were Misses Te
resa and Grace Trail, Margaret Ford,
Cornelia McSherry, Ellen Baker, Ruth
Osborn, Ruth Worthington, Emily John
son, Pauline McCardell, Lillian and Se
rena Motter, Alice Dean, Anne Schley,
Charlotte Smith, Harriet Ramsburg,
Mary Ramsburg, Elizabeth Maden, of
Washington, Miss Fitzpatrick, of Wash
ington.
The Brooklyn Eagle suggests that it
would be well at this time, while “social
and industrial justice.” are under con
sideration and the Colonel is disposed
to the discussion of morals, to have him
go to Washington and tell under oath,
what was done with the Harriman
money in 1904, and why it was that
Harriman considered himself gold
bricked as a result of that campaign con
tribution.
Chaff.
A doctor in Indiana says that the wash
tub, the ironing-table and the woodsaw
are the great aids to beauty. But the
wise woman of this wise Nation are not
to be caught with such transparent chaff
as that.—Balto. American.
The next President of the United States
was nominated, it will be observed, on
the forty-sixth ballot—23 for Roosevelt
and 23 for Taft.—Charleston News and
Courier.
