KAS PATENT COLLANDER
Mrs. J. A. Wilson, who resides
south cf this city, has just perfected
a very handy and useful household
article in the form of a collander
that is adapted to all kinds of work
in the preserving or canning of fruit
or vegetables and in fact is an arti
cle that should be in every house
hold. The collander is simple in con
struction, only four parts entering
into it. The Wilson collander cer
tainly is something that should be in
every home and especially In the
farm home or where there Is any
large amount of vegetables or fruit
to be handled. The first of the new
patented collanders has "been receiv
ed and the patentee is anxious to se
cure some suitable agents who can
place the handy household article in
die hands of the people of Cass coun
ty. Mrs. Wilson has devoted some
thirty years to work in the line of
farm household labor and from this
she has gathered the inspiration for
this device to save time and expense
in caring for many of the household

OUT OFTHE RACE?
Progressives Who Won but Lost the
Nomination They Sought, May
he Named to Fill Vacancy
If W. J. Taylor is to be permitted
to inject a little fireworks Into the
state campaign this fall, he will
have to do it as the appointed can
didate for governor of the progres
sive party state committee. Secre
tary of State Amsberry has declined
to issue a certificate of nomination
to Mr. Taylor as a candidate for gov
ernor on the progressive party pri
mary ballot. That is settled. The
secretary of state is one member of
the state board of canvassers and it
is his duty to issue certificates of
nomination to the proper persons.
Mr. Amsberry refuses in Mr. Tay
lor's case on the ground that Taylor
was not high man in the progressive
party primary. Norton was high man
but is prevented by law from accept
ing the nomination because he lost
the democratic nomination and did
not receive more progressive votes
than democratic votes.
"No candidate defeated at the
primary election shall be per
mitted to file by petition in the
general election next follow
ing." This is the law of 1917. This act,
it is generally believed by attorneys
does not prevent the progressive
party committee from naming Mr.
Taylor as a candidate for governor
to fill a vacancy. In Cass county,
where a vacancy exists for the of
fice of. sheriff in the progressive
ranks, it is also declared the same
would hold good.
There having been no nomination
at the primary, the committee has
power to fill the vacancy. The men
thus chosen would not be filing their
names as candidates by petition.
The petition method means run
ning as a candidate by petition and
without the right to use any polit
ical party designation in connection
with the appearance of one's name
upon the ballot. "By petition" are
the words following the name of a
candidate who files for nomination
by petition at the general election.
The secretary of state has decided
that he cannot issue certificates of
nomination to Edgar Howard, who
was nominated on the prohibition
ticket for congress because one voter
wrote his name in on the primary
ballot. He has also declined to cer
tify that B. K. Bushee of Kimball is
the democratic nominee for state
senator as a result of the writing in
of his name upon the ballot. Mr.
Bushee is a republican and Mr. How
ard is a democrat, not a prohibi
tionist. LOVES VALUABLE TREAS

From Friday's Dally.
Yesterday afternoon the baseball
warriors of the Village of Weeping
Water proceeded to lambast our base
ball aggregation when they visited
the city of sobbing waters to the
tune of 14 to 0. The tale is one of
grief and disappointment as the lo
cals were outplayed and to add to
the general slaughter a large num
ber of "errors were piled up by the
locals and which materially assisted
in piling up the large score for
Weeping Water. Mason did the box
work for the Merchants and was
touched up lively, which with the
errors made the winning easy for
our opponents. Carmen, the college
hurler of Lincoln, was in the box for
Weeping Water and made fifteen of
the locals w hiff the air while at bat.
FINE BALL GAME
The Cedar Creek base ball team
on last Sunday played the Wabash
team at that place and as the result
of the meeting one of the best games
of the season was staged, with Wa
bash winning by a score of 2 to 1.
Not an error was made on either Hide
and the two teams played ball all
the time as the score would indicate.
