Because deposits in National Banks

In the busy old world no one seems
to be satisfied. One man is struggling
to get justice and another is fleeing
from it. One man is saving up to buy
a home, another is trying hard t»o sell
his dwelling for less than it cost in
order to get rid of it. One man is
spending all the money he can earn on
auto and theaters for his girl and
sending her valuable presents in hopes
that he may eventually make her his
wife, while his neighbor’s spending
all the gold he has saved trying ot
get a divorce. One man keeps a pistol
vto 'protect himself against burglers,
while his neighbor doesn’t keep one
for fear of shooting himself or some
member of the family. One man pays
for his paper in advance because he
can read it with greater relish, while
another takes it as long as he pos
sibly can without paying one cent for
it and enjoys it hugely all the while.
Surely this is a queer old world.
PARTY LINKS AND TIES
Voters' in the nation, state and
county cast aside party ties and dis
regarded party lines in the general
election Tuesday Pre-election fore
casts based on what either party did
in past elections proved valueless. R.
B. Howell, republican candidate for
United States senator, defeated his
democratic opponent, Gilbert M. Hitch
cock by an overwhelmning vote and
then the voters turned right around
and defeated Charles Randall, repub
lican candidate for governor, giving
Charles W. Bryan, his democratic op
ponent a vote almost identical with
that of Howell. In the congressional
fight in the sixth districts of the state
three republicans, Sears of Omaha,
McLaughlin of York and Simmons of
Scotts Bluffs, and three democrats,
Howard of Columbus, Morehead of
rails City and Shallenberper of Alma
apparently are elected. In several
of the districts the official canvas will
be required to decide. On the face of
the unofficial returns all of the re
republican candidates on the state
ticket with the exception of Crawford
Kennedy, candidate for secretary of
state, seem to have been elected. In
Holt county John A. Robertson, the
democratic candidate for state sena
tor, ran well ahead of Hrar.tly Sturde
vant, his republican opponent and poes
out of the county with enouph marpin
to practically assure his election in the
district. Donald Gallapher, republi
can candidate for representative, de
cisively defeated Grabble, democratic
nominee. On the county ticket the
only close contest were on sheriff and
on county clerk, accordinp to the re
turns, every other of the republican
candidates triumphing over his demo
cratic opponent by a largo majority.
On the face of the unofficial returns
Sheriff Duffy has a lead of two over
Bnittell. Porter, -republican county
clerk, has a lead of ninety-eipht over
John Gallapher, democrat. There
are fifty-nine absent voters ballots to
be counted when the canvassinp Ixiard
convenes. In the contest for sheriff
these might overturn the apparent
victoi v of Sheriff Duffy, but it is con
ddere j doubtful. Two republican can
did iter, for supervisor, Havens and
o’.Bs two democrats. Sullivan and
Gibson, and one petition candidate,
Larson, have been elected to the five
vacancies on the county board. Mr.
Larson's party affiliations are re
publican. Miss Anna Donohoe, pres
ent county superintendent, defeated
her exponent, John Y. Ashton, on the
non-political ballot, by a very larpe
majority. The unofficial vote on the
various candidates, in Holt county, is

BACKES GETS FROM ONE TO
TWENTY YEARS IN PEN
Melvin Backes, the fellow from the
northern part of the county who was
arrested last week on a complaint
chaiging him with child stealing, was
arraigned before Judge Dickson in the
District court Friday and received a
sentence of from one to twenty years
in the penitentiary.
Backes became imfatuated with his
thirteen year old sister-in-law, Pearl
Crum, the daughter of Mrs. Margaret
Crum, living near Anncar, and with
whom Bakes and his wife were mak
ing their home.
Ulpon the pretext of going elsewhere
to seek work, Backes was taken to
Bristow last Tuesday where he was sup
posed to take the train for Norfolk.
Later that night he returned and ac
companied the little girl to Bristow
where he was apprehended the follow
ing morning occupying the same room
with her. They were brought to
O’Neill and Backes later plead guilty
bo the charge. On account of the
overcrowded condition of the state
penitentiary Backes will perhaps make
his home with Sheriff Duffy for the
