JULY 12, 1909.
I hereby announce myself as a candi
date for the republican nomination for
Register of Deeds of Cass county, sub
ject to the pleasure of the voters at
the coming primaries. In asking for
this nomination I desire to call atten
tion to the fact that my services in the
office of county surveyor, while being
largely of a "thank yo j" nature, the
renumeration being insufficient for the
eupport of a family, have eminently
fitted me for the duties of the ofTke to
which I aspire, and in case I should re
ceive the nomination I shall use my
best endeavors to be elected, and will
give to the office my best attention'.

the County Attorney to do his duty.
Senator Cummins of Iowa paid a
nice tribute to the work of Senator
Burkett the other day on the floor of
the Senate when he referred to Bur
lett'i Amendment to reduce the tariff
on barb wire. He said:
"I know that the Senator from Ne
braska (Mr. Burkett) has rendered to
the farmers of this country a conspicu

the reduction from about f 50 to $15 a
LET THE GOOD WORK CONTINUE.
The effort of Mayor J. P. Suttler to
have the weeda cut is most commenda

with the Mayor in this matter. Have
you got the ambition, then act at once.
If you will not do these little things,
then you are surely a tit subject for the

It is prompted also by a recognition of

a beautiful city pivsuMues a clean

economy in aural ways. It means, I
too, that beauty of environment has n j
moral or social value, since Men grow I

fact that the pride of its inhabitants is
among the biggest of ti city'b assets,

THE PRINCIPLE OF PROTECTION
If the standpatters in the Senate
understood the protective principle and
did not tacitly assume that a Hgta tariff
ia its own justification, regardless of
the extsrtion legalized by needless
duties, the debate on the act now in
the making wauld be much more en
lightening than it has been and much
freer from grotesque fallacies and in '
consistencies. As it is the high pro
tectionist is often betrayed into using
free trade arguments, to the joy of th
opponents of the very principle of pro
tection; the free trader seizes upon
protection arguments where they help
him in a concrete case, and one docsh't
know at the beginning of a speech
what its upshot will be.
In opposing free hides, for example
some standpatters "vehemently" de
clared that it would be dangerous to
deprive the farmer rf the hide duty
because he would then insist on buying
in the cheapest market. The manu
facturer must not ask for raw materials
because what is raw to him is finished
to the fanner, and the latter must have
the same benefits from protection as
What would the standpatters say to a
workman who objected to selling his
labor in the open market while buying
practically all his necessaries and com
forts in a highly protected market?
Why, they would say that his view is
very narrow, that protection raises his
wages and stoadiVs his employment,
and that the protective policy must be
judged by its national, general and
Whether hides or leather of shoes or
anything else needs protection or not
and what degree of protection it needs,
if any are questions that cannot be
answered by glittering talk about open
and closed markets or by sweeping
classifications of commodities
into raw and finished ones. The right
to a protective duty must be deter
mined, in every instance, in the light
tf facts-facts as to the chances of
foreign underselling, facts as to labor
cost, facts as to standards of living,
facts as to the balance of national pro
fit or national loss. Do the farmers
need the duty hides? Do they derive
more benefit from it than they would
from cheaper leather and cheaper boots
and shows? These are the pertinent
I The trouble with the Senate is that it
legislates in the dark, without reliable
data or the machinery for obtaining
them. It grants to greed what should
only go to need, and mistake appetite
in many cases for right. It substitutes
catch phrases and unassimilated half
truths for scientific tests.
HOW FLIES CARRY DISEASE.
( The common house fly is a carrier of
disease. Typhoid fever, diarrhoea,
dysentery and tuberculosis are carried
The house fly is particularly filthy,
because it has its birth place and lays
its eggs almost exclusively in refuse.
Flies feed on food and also on the
worst kind of filth.. They go from one
to the other. It is easy to understand
how they carry disease germs to our
food in this manner.
Our domestic animals, the dog and
cat, are kept in their proper place. The
hou?e fly is tolerated everywhere,
crawls over our hands and faces, gets
into the milk, walks over all our food,
often soiling and contaminating every
thing that comes in contact with its
filthy feet and tongue. A bulletin is
sued by the board of health of Orange,
Typhoid fever is certainly dissemina
ted by flies. Flies pollute food and
drinks by means of the filth which they
convey from refuse. They 'breed al
most exclusively in filth. They certain
ly disseminate cholera; and cases of tc
tanus seem to have been originated

COMMISSION FORM OF CITY
It is no surprise to hear that the con
mittce of five senators which has been
j investigating commission government
of cities in Texas has come home en
thusiastic for that method of govern
ment. Tho system has worked wdi
wherever it has been tried. By the
mere fact that it abandons the division
of cities into wards it eliminates a cer
tain source of permanent evil in all cit
ies large enough tb have slum districts
and a mixed populttion territorially
distributed. It is the nearest approach
in large American cities to that intro
duction of honest public spirit into the
municipal government which is enjoyed
by nearly all French, German and Eng
lish cities. Record-Herald. '
"Kunnel" Bates, the Boss of the
democratic party ha named D. C. Mor
gan for county clerk on tha democratic
ticket, and his ring are now proceeding
to keep out other good democrats from
becoming candidates. The Bates-Grimes-Ruff
ner-Fox-Ramsey ring and
Morgan the ring candidate do not in
tend to allow any other entries for that
office. The Boss and ring have also
slated G. P. Meisinger for county com
missioner, and no other candidate need
apply there. Last fall the "Kunnel"
and his ring left 0. W. Laughlin to go
down to defeat because Laughlin $d
not belong to the ring. The year be
fore poor Box was unmercifully skinned
because he too was not a ring man.
Yes, "Kunnel" the people remember
your nepotism last winter, when you
could get a job for your daughter in the
legislature.but the other fellow'sdaugh
ter could stay at home. 'es, "Kun
nel" the dear people are now aware
that you are the political "lioss" of
the democratic Bates-Grimes-Ruffner-
Fox-Ramsey ring. Yes, the "Boss '
and "ring" are it. Good and worthy
democrats can walk up and vote for
the "Boss" and "ring" ticket. So the
country democrats must consult the
ring or stay out.
HOW TO KEEP PUPILS IN SCHOOL
So much of the educational discussion
is necessarily vague and abstract that
a fact pointing to a constructive or re
constructive moral is particularly val
uably at this time. Such a fact, ac
cording to the assistant superintendent
of the Chicago schools, is the remark
able increase in the number of our high
school graduates as mpared with any
The course of study in this part of
system, explaias Mr. Megan, has been
much more attractive this year than
ever before, "and as a consequence the
proportion of boys and girl's who have
remained in school has been so much
larger" than usual "as to be notice
able," thw being "particularly true of
the hiyh schools teaching manual arts
and domestic science."
The dropping out of boys and girls
from the higher grades and the high
schools is one of the troubles whic h
educators have anxiously studied in the
last few years. Of the theories ad
vanced to account for the tendency
the most probable has seemed th'e one
which laid stress on the dry, theoret
ical, unattractive character of the
studies in the upper parts of the pub
lic school system. "The curse of the
college" was the phrase employed by
one eminent educator to characterize
the lack of practical utility and the ap
parent lifelessness of the studies.
If here in Chicago manual training
and other industrial "courses" with
domestic science for girls, have per
C3ptibly checked the dropping-out pro
cess, the educational world has been
supplies with a very important hint
a id a basis of reality for an interesting
theory. Study is not play, but cer
tainly the curriculum can be made
more "vital," more responsive to the
needs of the pupils, as they or their
parents feel them, not only without
lo3s, but with positive gain to discipline
and moral culture. Attractive studies
are not necessarily ornamcmental and
comparatively useless studies; they
may involve hard work, application
and adaptation to tho efficient and
! strenuous life. Chicago Record-1 ler-
9 Soil Fresli
The first thought on buying n farm,
h how can its value be increased? This,
naturally, will mean more profit.
While making the soil richer is the so
lution, it is not so easily done, when the
entire farm is considered, while con
stantly cropping and selling produce
In a great many Instances" the far
mer engaging on new land endeavors
to make it more productive, and in his
efforts lessons the soil fertility. For a
long time tho farm muy be steadily
growing poorer and yet annually pro.
dicing bigger crops.
All the manure applied has its value
returned in one or more crops, and
fiese rob the soil of some kind of fer
tility that the manure itself does not
supply to them. Wherever potash and
phosphate have become so exhausted
that grain crops cannot be grown with
out an application of these minerals to
each crop it is an indication that the
soil is becoming poorer. The farmer
manures for tha crop rather than for
the land, and is satisfied if in each crop
the money value of the fertilizer used
ia retimed, with a reasonable profit.
Bat there are other methods than
making land rich to increase its value.
Sometimes better cultivation alone will
accomplish this ihough always with
this beAer cultivation comes more rapid
soil exhaustion. In order to secure his
living, the farmer must exhaust fertil
ity. Fertility is the raw material that
natare supplies, and the farmer turns
it ioto as many forms as he chooses,
and of kinds that will most likely give
him a profit. Hera, then, is a call for
energy and skill, and if these are prop
erly applied, the farmer receives his
reward and the faYm becomes more
valuable. Every farmer should en
deavor to find new and profitable crops,
so that he may secure a much greater
income from his land.
Success is more apt to come to the
farmer in?idently than from the direct
product of his land. The first step
necessary, he soon realizes, is to stock
the place with animals that are needed
in working it or tc consume such pro
ducts that are otherwise unmarketable.
The stock increases, and the farmer
finds inoome from the sale of it3 sur-
plus. After a while, by better feeding
and better breeding superior strains
are produced, which sell at better
prices, for the reason that they will
make so much better use of all that
Should the land not produce sufficient
for the stock, or probably can be put to
better uses, it will pay to buy the grain
and produce only corn fodder and some
clover for coarse feed -and this improve
ment of the stock is often found to be,
an easier way of making money than
improving the land. However, much to
the surprise of the farmer.he often finds
that after a few years of improved
stock growing his land has grown so
rich that It can be put to uses that at
first were not exected.
It has been truthfully said that there
are thousands of farmers whose land is
poor, and try the best they may, they
can not get manure enough to make it
rick. If they increase crops by mora

It has often been said that some men
work hard all their lives, and, after, all
have nothing to show for it, while
others, who take things more easily,
find wealth coming to them from un
expected sources. It is easy to gaess,
if these different classes are farmers,
that the man who works hardest and
has least is the man who is consciously
trying to make land rich, while all the
time doing his best to get the largest
crops from it; while the man who makes
money easily has had the good sense to
secure the best possible stock, and by
its increase make both himself and his
farm rich. Exchange.
