Henderson Daily Dispatch flLookin" On | Up the street last night, Cap Cooper was buttonholing folks asking them what a political machine is. Cap said he knew what one was, but his boy had something about it in civics or politics in school and had to give a definition of a political machine, So Cap was trying to accommodate the young man. G. W. Knott was sorter trying to help Cap gouge definitions out of othea folks. Course, all of them knew what a political machine is, but they didn’t just exactly have a concise, compact statement of it. It’s no use trying to look up the name in the dictionary; they didn’t have political machines in old man Noah Webster’s day, not of the kind they have now. So, after some little discussion, Knott said he thought a political ma chine was “an organized political cli que composed of the powers that be.’ John Zollicoffer, who was in this immediate crowd, added a qualifying clause, “ —who control a certain num ber of votes”. And then Cap added still another clause on to John’s like this, “ —and brings pressure on down the line." Well, when you string all that to gether you’ve at least got some idea of what a political machine is, but it ain’t so very succinct. Cap’s boy prob ably had to do some condensing be fore he turned in his paper to his teacher. Funny thing though all three ot them are in politics up to their necks right now doing all they can for our friend Jere Zollicoffer. Whether they can give a definition of the machine now that will be satisfactory to them selves and to Cap’s boy and his teacher, I’ll bet all of them will run up against the old political loeomotive enough before this campaign’s ovei to know all about one. I was walking along the Main Drag late Wednesday and my eyes sudden ly fell on a sign on the window of a cash grocery which said: “Brains lu cents”. It wasn’t specific, at all; just said “brains 10 cents”. It didn’t teii you whether hog brains was meant, oi cow brains or chicken sense or just what. It didn’t say how much you could get for your dime, either. Might have meant a can of brains, a .box oi them or a hotdog full or a headfull. Anybody will admit to yot% that a lot of brains is needed along about, now and it does look like when they are going for ten cents a set, or pan, or whatever way they they measure them, that everybody could afford to get enough for their needs. Reckon, though, it takes a lot for a lot of folks, and the supply just as apt as not ran short. But the strang thing about it is that the price of those brains looked like a direct conflict with the old economic law of suppv and demand. I was always told the scarcer things are the higher the price. But Mr. Roosevelt’s bram trusters have done busted up a thin fe so ordinary as the law of supply and demand. There ain’t no such thing any more; at least they are trying tc fool themselves and the country into believing there ain’t Some fellows were up in Ray Good rich’s photograph studio last niglu counting up the votes in that bany contest. Well, when a man taices a job as judge in a baby contest, he s just taking his life in his own hands. All the little darlings can’t get tnc first prize, but their mamas and papas all think their own little ones is en titled to it. And they are, by all means. It happened this time, though, that the judges didn’t have to decide any thing. All they had to do was to just count the votes. In that balloting they had whiu# votes and red (or pink) ones. The red ones were for the babies under two years old and the white ones for the babies from two to five. Well, Ray and his wife said they did their dead levelest best to keep the lines drawn, but you know just lots of peo ple got their white and red corpuscles mixed up. They didn’t develop a case of anemia to where the white ones destroyed the red ones, but they were somewhat mixed. Joe Mann and Doc Crowder helped in the counting; in fact they did most of it. This may be lettin’ the cat out of the bag, but in case any of you mamas and papas don’t like the way things went, why just take it up with Joe and Doc. They’ll fix everything. Joe is an expert counter. He’s used to counting money at the bank. Ho started out kinder like you shuffle a deck of cards though he admitted Mr. Hunt said that wasn’t no way to count money. He thought it ought to be done sorter like you were deal ing cards out. Joe remembered Mr. Hunt had said that and he changed over to counting his votes that way. Doc Crowder was a pinch hitter in the counting because the other man didn’t put in, for some reason or other. Maybe he was wise and smelt a rat. Anyway all the judges that go to the Stevenson tonight for the announce ment of the winners and the pre senting of the awards is going to wear mustache and side whiskers and other wise disguise themselves so the irate mamas and papas can’t discover them in the crowd in case anything happens. Well, s’long for today. Hicksboro News By FLORENCE B. WOQDY Miss Jannie Gill and Myrtle Clark spent Monday in town shopping.
