The refined and festive table sparkles with bright silver and cut glass.
Life s heroic and joyful moments are marked with a jewel or a bit of gold
or silver. Life itself is measured by the jeweler's watch or clock.
The jeweler serves the finest and best interests of life. His place can never
be taken by those who dicker in jewelry, solely on a commercial basis, with
out the heart interest of one who loves his craft. ' '

County Commissioner Geo. AV.
Roberts, who filed his resignation with
County Clork Yost Friday, served notice
on Clerk Yost Tuesday that he had re
considered tho matter and would with
draw his resignation. This withdrawal,
however, apparently comes too late, for
when Clerk Yosf as recording officer
of,tho county, filed the resignation it
was in act of acceptance, and tho
vacancy in the olllco existed from that
time, for the letter of resignation
stated that it became effective at once.
Had Mr. Roberts set a definite time in
advance for his resignation to become
effective and before the date set he had
served notico of its withdrawal, then it
would have been recognized.
The withdrawal of tho resignation is
n move on the political checker-board,
aed it was made in order to prevent the
appointment of'a republican momber of
the, board. The power to appoint a suc
cessor to Mr. Roberts lies with the
qounty clerk, county treasurer and
couTty judge. Tho two former ofilcinls
are'repnblicans, and in caso of n demo
cratic and a republican applicant, with
fitness being equal, It would bo no more
than proper thnt tho republican bo
selected. This is a point at once seen
by democrats when tho resignation of
Mr. Roberts became known, lience their
insistence upon him thnt he file n with
drawal. To have a republican member
of the board -even though the other
two members are democrats-would,
from a democratic standpoint, be a dis
grace. County Clerk Yost, backed by the nd
vico of the acting county nttornev, will
stand pat on u non-acceptance of the
withdrawal, and will hold that a vacancy
on the board of county 'emmissioners
exist. Arrangements have been made
for an appointment next Monday morn
ing. The two most nctive applicants for
the position are John Kelloher.democrat,
of Maxwell, and E. II. Sringer, repub
lican, of llrady, both of whom have
been members of the board in the past.
