Tho Taft and Roosevelt cam

jit wide variance regarding In
structed delegates for their res
pective candidates, both claiming
a big majority. This Is possible on
account of contested delegates and
unless utmost fairness prevails in
Chicago, a big fight fend split
will result Such a condition is
unusual and shows tho groat nec
essity of re-adjusting iour primary
rules. In the (first place, the
number of delegates should be
regulated by tho number of party
votes. Then the delegates, receiv
ing the lorcgst number of votes
should bo seated, regardless, of
what faction isiln control, and in

Hiffh Prices Not a Calamity
We should not allow ourselves to
tako too one-sided a vlsw of the
present high prices of living. They
are not altogether agreeable ; there
is no arguing that point for a
moment But they harve their
good side. They have brought
about results that could hardly
have been brought, about aa ef fect
tlvcly in any other way. Many a
housekeeper has been driven into
her kitchen to ssa more closely
that tho high-priced foods were
not spoiled by ignorant cooking.
Many a woman has had to figure
more closely, , and thereby las
learned lessons in food values and
domestic economy that she would
never havo learned had prices been
kept down. Physicians on every
hand concede that people are 'pay
ing more attention to their eating
to their way of living, to sanita
tion; to cleanliness. General
health is a more vital question to
day tlian it ever would havo bepn
if prices of foodatufs had not

told for years by writers and doc
tors that they were eating too
much, meat? that "red meats are -not

the prices of meals got beyond the
VVfyerage purse, did "they, heed. The
