We no good reason why Clay
ton should not have a local option
election. If a majority favor a
dry town, then let us have a dry
town: and if a majority favor a wet
town, let's have a rehilar soaker.
A decision in this matter, whatever
the result, would be a good thing
for the town, business men would
know better how to figure, and could
decide how Ix-st to make invest
ments. We favor an election, the
sooner th better, because it will
settle business conditions for a torni
of years.

When we stated last week that
the. legislature would adjourn on
last Friday at noon, we acted on
the assumption that the legislature
would obey the constitution, Why
we assumed that the legislature
would obey we are at a loss now to
explain, because as a matter of fact
they had been constantly violating
the same. Wo failed to guess to
what limit the unlawfulness of that
body would f-ro Hut we hav- the
consolation that such republican
newspapers as the I leming (ra
piñe, the Western Liberal and other
papers made the same mistake. The
very organs of the republican par
ty could not comprehend thatt their
representatives would do the things
they did do. Sierra Tree Press.
The News made the same mistake
and for the same reason, (if
rourse, we knew better than to
suppose, that the caucus corkscrew

right or according to the law and
constitution. We were honest and
right and no npology is necessary.
If you admire Teddy, all right:
but don't forget to include in your
daily prayers thanks to the Lord
that he isn't president of our coun
try at this particular time.
t'nion county's persistent trou
ble maker, Mrs. Mary (ioodin, who
was sent to the penitentiary the
first of the week to serve a sus
pended sentence of two years, has
been featured by every daily in
the state. The truth of the matter
is. Mary is not nearly as dangerous
as sin; has been painted. She has
never ran any one out of the coun
ty, but it is true that she bas made
several "skidoo" off her own dung
hill. She has taken several healthy
shuts at people she soemed to con
sider trespassers, but has always
n; t to bit them. In
our opinion Mary is more rrazy
than mean, ami should bo in the as
ylum instead of in the penitentiary.
However, her absence for two years
is a relief to all, and no one cares
very much where she is. so long as
(die isn't here.

Turning Something I'p
There are two certain classes of
young men; one of them is contin
ually standing around waiting for
something to turn tip; the other is
continually turning something up.
This applies to abstracts as well
as to men. One you take with the
feeling that something is likely to
turn up at any time; the other you
i take with the- feeling that some
thing has already turned up; ie.,
the title to the land.
We furnish the kind of abstracts
that give you the feeling that some
thing has been turned up; ie., the
title to the land.

Moving Picture Tricks.
Some of the most thrilling scenes tn
the moving picture dramas are taken
wltb tbe aid of small modela, wblcb
are considerably less than life alze.
It Is much cheaper, of course, to burn
op toy building or to sink a minia
ture ship than to destroy an original
to make a moving picture holiday. The
modela used for this work are carried
out with great attention to detail, and
the pictures are taken with the cam
era very close to the ground to get
the proer perspective. Tbe moving
picture audiences, even when paying
tbe closest attention, are completely
deceived. Boston Herald.
