The Anicrlinn tatit I'urltnn bent the RnclHh ynclit Omenta in a riict for the America's cup OCT Lous IsI.-ibcI by over slsfivn minutes. 'After four Ineffpftual attempts to Mil a rwe for the cup, then in possession of the New York Yacht club, the com peting yachts accomplished it. , and the American boat won the race enslly. A large number of women reg istered In Boston to vote on the school question. ' It would e Interesting to tv:6w just wi it cohncction the'-e is, if any,' be tween the ra.'J, on t'iie gang of ros? at Ford's saloon yesterday, avd tue resignation of Officer Wm. Grencn last, uiaht Alderman Creaney is very much re l'.eved. According to City Clerk Hatcher's report last night Alderman Cannon's brick rattler will cost only t'ld'.riO. This will leave a balance of Just f 10.50 in the city's 15,000' Rojid District fund, which, very properly, has been an object of much tender so licitude on the part of Alderman Greaney, since the counsil refused to adopt the Road District Ordinance over the mayor's veto. ' : Cairoltet seem to be, taking e proper interest In the Cincinnati e.v position, and "Cairo Day" 'particu larly. Mayor if arsons and Presitlcn Antrim, of the Board of Trade, have received a goodly number of appli;a tions for sleeper berths from this city. and. as already"stated, Mound City will take an entire sleeper. Mound Cly, of course, Is as deeply interest ed In the Ohio Valley as Cairo, The trip will be well worth the money in a variety of ways, Credit seems to be due Chief Cow ell. Sergeant French and Officer Ken nedy for their prompt and effective work in the case of doping anil rob bery at John R. Ford's saloon yester day, as told in the news columns this niorntng. The case is exactly like a numther of cases that came to light if counection with the Boursolse dive at Forth and Ohio streets. But 1b thi latter case the place wa3 under police protection with police "rake off" and when a victim complained be was run out of town under threa' of belnjr, put in jail. The conduct of the police in the case of yesterday wan In marked eantrast with wont The Bulletin has complained about in the. past and It desires to express It gratification and to congratulate Chief Cowell, Prof. Gott had the endorsement of the entire Board of Education and nearly all the teachers in the public nchools, when he was appointed to fill the term left vacant by the death of Prof. Snyder. He Is recognized by all who know him as a scholar and as a splendid disciplinarian; and teach ers all agree that the institute which closed this week was the best attend ed and most profitable ever held in this county, wholly through Prof. Gott's efforts. Prof, Gott also looktd after the collection of money due the schools from the justices of the coun ty and while this has made him som foes, be was merely carrying out what the law clearly directs. But th Republican party machine wants to nominate A. D. Twente, whom the Thebes board of education refused to re-elect to have charge of the-.r schools after the first term. PRIMARY THE REAL ELECTION. Lest busy or Indifferent voters forget that conditions have cbanged in po' itics, the Legislative Voters' League has Jsued a timely bulletins remind ing them that in a majority of the dis tricts the primary is not only an "elec on," in the words of the supreme court, but the election. The Novem ber election will be a jnere ceremo:: of ratification in these districts; Thursday's balloting will practically determine the result. The old primary was boycotted by the majority of good citizens in the belief that it was an Idle preliminary and that the machine and bossed, not the delegate convention did V.ie nominating. The Dew primary gives the. voter a real chance, and in man instances it gives him the only chance he has. There are. no convention; the bosses can only suggest; they cannot dictate or control nominations. jo stay away from the primary is to give the gangs and their jack pot tools the victory by default. TheM is no further excuse for apathy, for failure to attend the primary an i vote. Let the voter realize that the primary. Is the thing and that a sin of ommlssion or commission on pri mory day cannot, in many districts be corrected in November. Record- Herald.

The Value of the Country Newspaper Great Value to Advertisers Value Infinitely Greater to the Nation t Copyright. 1910, by th New Yorfc Evening Journal Fubllithlng Company. The Evening Journal believes it i9 most important that the metropolitan newspapers Bhould do what they can to advocate the use by advertisers of the local newspapers throughout the country. To begin with, the local newspapers, in proportion to their cir culation, are INFINITELY TIIE MOST VALUABLE ADVER TISING MEDIUMS THAT .WE HAVE. We say this naturally uninfluenced by the fact that our own newspaper organization has no country newspapers, but. only, metropolitan dailies. The value of the, country newspaper is based largely upon the fact that the man who reads it looks upon it AS A NEIGHBOR AND A FRIEND, A PERSONAL ACQUAINTANCE, and at taches to the printed statements and advertisements of the country newspaper far greater importance than the dweller in the big city attaches to the statements or the advertisements in tho big city newspaper. As one friend talking to another about certain kinds of goods can influence a friend moro than a stranger, so a country newspaper standing on a footing of friendship with its readers can talk to them about goods for sale or any other topic and impress them more strongly than the big metropolitan newspaper, which ia really a stranger, an abstraction to its readers, can impress the metropolitan reader. ' . '"';, More than that, and infinitely more important, is the part that the country newspaper or the small newspaper of the moderate sized city or town or village plays in national work. Big newspapers in big cities are useful. But every honest news paper is a member of a great police forco. It is important for vig ilant, active, WELL PAID newspaper policemen to be scattered in every corner of the country. It is very important that a reasonable income, generous recognition by advertisers, should make the local newspaper independent of everything except its readers' welfare. It is important that the local editor should bo well paid ; that he should be at least as well off financially a3 tho average man in public office, whom he alone criticises, BY WHOM HE ALONE IS FEARED. As conditions aro today the local editor, the man who is leading thousands of good fights all over tho country, 13 poorly recognized or not recognized at all. With few exceptions, it is impossible for men of great ability, public spirit and integrity to make by bard work in a year of intelligent journalism a quarter as much as can be made by any rascal willing to sell himself to a corporation. It is a great harm to the country that tho ambitious newspaper man should be moving always toward the big cities in order to make a decent living. Every town where there is a congressman NEEDS A GOOD EDITOR Every city where a judge sits and looks at the corporation with one eye and the little people with the other eve AND A VERY DIFFERENT EYE FOR EACH needs an honest editor, WITH BOTH EYES ON THE JUDGE. It would be a very good thing indeed for this country if country editorship meant a comfortablo income, a permanent fortune, per manent independence, in addition to a position of honor and diirnitv. Eut the local editors, the owners of the newspapers in tho smaller communities, will never como into their own UNTIL THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT SHALL INTRODUCE THE PAR CELS POST SYSTEM. ,As matters stand now hundreds of men who would be glad to advertise in local newspapers to reach the local population, away from tho big department stores, are unable to do po'TJECAUSE THE THIEVERY OF THE EXPRESS COMPANIES MAKES IT IMPOSSIBLE FOR THE MANUFACTURER TO REACH THE CONSUMER REASONABLY. A big, successful newspaper in San Francisco as an example earns $5 EVERY YEAR FOR EVERY COPY OF THE PAPER SOLD. This newspaper cm earn this amount of money because advertisers through that newspaper can reach directly the people that Lave the money to spend AND SUPPLY THEM IMMEDIATELY. How much it would mean to the owner of a small newspaper if his circulation could be worth to him $5 a copy! What a good thing it would be for tho intelligent, earnest, energetic and honest editor with 2,000 circulation if 2,000 circulation in the country meant $10,000 profit a year! Two thousand circulation in the country would bo worth more than 2,800 in the city to the owner of 'tho paper IF THIS COUN TRY HAD TIIE PARCELS POST. In the long run it would be far better for the local storekeeper. It might crowd out the man who is hesitating about failing and who is going to fail in the end anyhow. But it would certainly hep the ABLE man. And it would make rich men of many struggling editors. If the man who owns a newspaper in the country had the power, backed with the parcels post, to distribute manufactured goods to his readers directly, his paper would be of the greatest possiblo value and infinitely more valuable per copy of circulation than any news paper in any big city. j It is important to emphasize the value of the oountry newspaper.; 1 To urge patronage of the local press is good advice from the point of view of the advertiser, and it is still better advico from the point of view of the average citizen. It would be a very sad day indeed for this country if there were not scattered in every little hamlet a conscientious, clean newspaper man, willing for ridiculously small pay to watch and protect the in terests of the neighborhood. Married In Thebes. William Halpin and Miss Edm Anstrom were married at Fayville, III.. Saturday pveninf?. The cero rnony was performed by Rev. William King, who is also mayor of Theben. The groom is assistant superintend ent of the Aetna Powder Co., at Fay vl le nud his bride is the niece of Mrs. Arveston, who is proprietress of the Dynamite hotel. She had been a Bucst of her aunt for several monthsand her home was In Chicago. The couple left for Chicago and other points on a wedding tour, A Line of Money Kings, Ella "There is a good deal ot 'money in her family, ign't there?" Stella "Yes, Rhe comes of a line ot rich ancestors. Her father was a par lor car porter, her grandfather a plumber and her greatgrandfather a waiter In a hotel." ine Next Beet Thing. The Loafer "Alas! my ship doesn't come in." The Real Man 'Then get a move on and help some other fellow unload his," Boston Rvpnin Trim, script. ' Real Fire Water. According to the London Chronicle, a peculiar drink Is to be found on the west coast of Africa: "You take a wineglass and put in it a few drops from every bottle in the bar. Then you put a match to it the mixture usually contains enough spirit to light nnd gulp it don. This fire water possibly explains why so few West African officials live to see their pen sions." . . - Statue to Philip Sidney. The name of Sir Philip Sidney la, of course, held high in honor among Dutchmen, who cannot forget that when he died at Zutphen, in 1588, he was fighting in their cause against bpatn. A committee has recently been formed at Zutnhen to arraniro for the erection of a statue to Sidney at that place, and subscriptions are appealed for not only in Holland but in Great Britain. When a man begins to say he feels as young as he ever did, that is an other sign be is getting old. Atchison Globe. If CalroAlexander County, Illinois, 1 Population 18,147. 1 Mayor, GEORGE PARSONS.
