My hand has never scratched the name of a Democrat from a ballot. I have not only voted for every Demo cratic candidate for governor, but I have likewise voted for every Demo cratic candidate from president to constable." James A. Reed, Demo cratic candidate for United States senate, in his Moberly speech. From Ma. The people of Oregon and vicinity want to know, Why, yes, we're going to have the Chrysanthemum Show, You all are invited And none will be slighted. So please to remember It will be in November, So come and spend the pleasant hours, With your friends amongst the flowers. And now all good people, from both country and town, We ask you to help make it a thing of renown, For if not for such meetings With cheer and good greetings, We all would grow rusty, Morose, sour and crusty. The women have been "Mum" for fourteen years, Now 1 propose to give them three cheers. Me. The progressives victory in the Re publican state primary election in Washington, Tuesday of last week, exceeded all expectations. Miles Poindexter, of Spokane, one cf the most pronounced of the progressives, has been nominated for United States Senator by a plurality of thirty thousand. Alpha nayden, of Kansas City, is here visiting relatives. C. O. Proud went to Fairfax on Tuesday to attend the funeral of a nephew. Clyde Baker is taking in the Skid more Punkin Show, and visiting his brother, Harry and family. Stone and Cement Bridg.es. The average Missouri county spends more for bridges and keeping its high ways in repair than for any other one item. This being the case it would appear that they would adopt some system of spending this money that would give the most practical results. According to the report of the high way commissioner for the state of New York, the several counties, or local communities, of that common wealth, are to be asked to build noth ing but stone or concrete culvers and bridges, where the distance to be bridged is forty feet or under. The adoption of such a system . will soon supply the state with permanent bridges and culverts of the very best character. In Missouri we have been doing very little work of this character. In the main our small bridges are build ed of iron and steel, which begins to deteriorate the moment they are com pleted and is soon worn out entirely. A bridge, builded of solid masonry or concrete will last forever and requires but little or no expense to keep it in repair. Its first cost may be some thing more than an iron bridge, but in the end it proves to be economy to put in the stone structures. In our own county, while Engineer Morris has not as yet put in any con crete bridges, he has put in a number of concrete culverts, and in some of these, the putting in of a bridge has been saved, and in some instances have cost less than a bridge w'ould have cost, and wherever a culvert of this character has been builded it has justified the expectations of those who favor that kind of work. Con crete arched culverts have been put in at the following places during the year: Ten-foot one at D. Ward King's; 18 foot at Ferd Meadows': 16 and 18-foot at Richville; an 18-foot at Fred Krae mer's: 18-foot near Woods school house. All of these have wing walls. The material is being put on the ground for the building of three oth ers. One of these will be built north of Richville, one near the Pierce school house and one near the Jim Laselle place; they will each be 18 feet long: They are all arched, and vary from 5 to 18 feet, but are principally 8 and 10-foot arches. The Supreme Court. At bo time in the history of the supreme court have there existed so many vacancies and so many impor tant questions awaiting decisions. The chief justiceship and the places of two associates are vacant, while cases the importance of which to the welfare of the country cannot be overestimated await hearing and consideration. The 'responsibility that rests on President Taft in fill ing these vacancies is tremendous, not only as regards the appointees themselves,, but the determination of the important questions at issue, along broad, liberal and equitable lines. The supreme court is not an insti tution whose services is measured by the political life of the administra tion that may till vacancies on the bench. There have been but eight chief justices in the whole history of the court, whereas there have been 27 presidents. The average length of service of the chief justices has been nearly four times that of the presi dential term. Many a chief justice has wielded an influence in the affairs of the nation long after the president who created him has passed from of fice and. in several instances, long af ter his death. The same holds true with the majority of associate jus tices, so that no president called upon to fill vacancies on the supreme bench can be unmindful of the fact that his responsibility extends not merely to important cases in hand, but possibly to greater questions than have ever been considered. The supreme court is the balance wheel of ourgovernment. It holds the ship of state on even keel. It pre vents construction of rights and privi leges that may be injurious to the people. It interprets law in justice to all. The supreme court will, we believe, when vacancies are filled by President Taft, again be the agency conceived by the framers of the con stitution and maintained by the ap pointive power ever since.
