The Senator made inaiiv telling geiiey. Among the many happy hits made by h.ini against the present "reform" administration in this state was the fact that the last '"reform" legislature cre ated 18 new offices, which fact to an ordinary voter is convincing proof that they "went some." It seems that these offices were cre ated for all imaginable purposes and that even the hapless little bees of this state were not per mitted to make honey in peace but could only do so under the lynx-eyed supervision of two "bee inspectors."'

'May 30. 1 !)1 (). will be long remembered as having been a beautiful day and the greatest gathering of people that ever as sembled in Koberts ocitnty on this occasion. This day is set apart to com memorate and decorate the graves of the departed heroes who sacrificed their lives for Ilie cause of Liberty. Fraternity Equality and One 1'nited Coun try.

The whole arrangements were admirable and the way in which they were carried out speaks volumes for the display of thought of all those who^ had the management of the affair. Whether the great outburst of apparent good feeling and de voted patriotism was brought about by studied prearrangement or was the effect of spontaneous outburst, it matters not, it was there, in the best and most de monstrative form. Everything was in order, every move was governed by the same spirit of amity, and the fact that the peo pie came from all parts of the large county to pay honor to Hit departed heroes, shows how this feeling of amity abounds in our midst.

A. Morrill, the in surgent candidate for clerk of courts, left for the Coast. He spent several months traveling, looking over the country, and re turned early this spring. Upon his return, he gave his' old neigh bors and acquaintances to under stand that he saw many places a good deal nicer to live in than Koberts county, and said he had sold everything he had in Roberts •ounty and was going to close up his accounts and move west or to Canada. The Jones-Foss machin was unable to find any resident of Roberts county to run against Jvar Stadstad for clerk of courts, They finally thought of Mr. Mor rill as a feasible candidate and succeeded in stopping him be fore he moved away to the Coast and induced him to stay here to run for office. After he is de feated, he will wander on out west and long before the snow flies, will be comfortably settled in some other community.
