AFTERMATH OF ELECTION.
The election in over,
The linn1 has paused,
We have a democratic president.
Elected at. last.
For many long years
They have Jlgured and pled,
Now remember their promise
And what, they have said:
That limes would he heller,
That trusts would break,
And the republicans would see
Their past mistakes.
V hope this is true,
That it's all tor the best,
Hut if they prove the statements
I have missed my guess;
Hul iHivv we are all democrats,
It's easy to admit,
And if limes do improve
We helped to do it;
Hul if limes Roes h id,
II. will be called a disgrace,
And Wood row Wil son
Was no man for the place.
The people's llr.sl, choice,
We can see by far,
Was Champ Clark of Missouri
And Teddy 11.
Hut as it was,
There were three lo run,
And of course the loosers
Were two to one;
Hut. after I he split,
And Hie fusion, loo,
The democrats decided
Thai Wilson would go through
And now we have him
Hefore the gun
And will await Die time
To see what comes.
If times prow heller,
We'll be glad they won,
Tint if they grow worse,
The democrats are done.
For, ns Hryan used to say,
It. is only four years more
Till we have another rhauce
To pull them ashore.

The little i-year-old' daughter
of Mr. and Mrs. Mark F'urtong
was quite seriously burned' last
Tuesday. The little child" was out
playing in the fire,, and; esught
her clothing in thiv Haines, which
leaped to a mass, at a moment's
notice. She ran screaming to her
father, who was. near-by, and who
succeeded in tearing tho clothing
from the child, but not until she
was very seriously burned. The
aera of skin destroyed on the Ut
ile one's body was so great that it
will necessitate the grafting of
new skin before the recovery will
be complete. " The father suc
ceeded in saving the child's life,
but burned his hands quite, badly
in doing so.

Rusisan Thistle Problem.
The Rusisan thistle, that has
been the pest among the farmers
in the western part of the state,
has made its appearance along
the line of railroads in our county.
The plants are becoming very
plentiful and should be looked af
ter by the authorities, who have
the right to see that railroad
officials have these weeds de
stroyed and not be allowed to
ripen and spread to adjoining
farms. This means much to the
farmer, for when once they get a
good start it will be a hard mat
ter to get rid of them. What will
be done in regard to this?
