Frntii Saturday's Daily
The cost of the expression of the
will of the people of the county at the
election grows greater each year it
seems and this year it will reach over
the $2,000 mark for the actual cost
of the election. This includes the
judges and clerks, the cost of the sup

ballots, the rent of rooms, and the
cost of distributing the supplies and
posting up of notices of the election.
The length of the ballot caused a

cut down the elections to one in every
two years instead of each year as was
formerly the case under the old elec
