Re-elected President of the United States.
President Received the Largest Vote
Ever Rolled Up for Democratic j
Candidate, Carried Two-Thirds of
the States of the Union.—Control
of Lower House of Congress in
New York.—After holding the peo
ple of the country in a state of sus
pense unequalled in the political his
tory of the United States, Republican
Chairman Rowell of California con
ceded the state to President Wilson
fifty hours after the polls closed in
the election November 7. Until Cali
fornia votes were counted sufficiently
to assure the winner in that state the
presidential, election was held in a
balance. The thirteen electoral votes
of California made 269 for the presi
dent, or three more than the neces
sary number to elect.
President Wilson carried two-thirds
of the states of the union and re
ceived 2,266,614 more votes than when
he was elected in 1912. This is the
greatest increase given to an Amer
ican president for a second term
since the civil war. He received
2,060,708 more votes than ever pre
viously recorded for a democratic can
didate and, is the largest vote ever re
ceived by a president from the people
of this country—952,955 more than the
total cast for Roosevelt in 1912.
Mr. Wilson is the only president
ever elected with the “solid east”
against him. His victory was believ
ed by politicians to presrge an align
ment for the first time in congress of
the west with the south. It was point
ed out that while he would not have
“a working majority” in the lower
house, he would not have to combat
a majority inimical t<^ his policies.
There has been much speculation
among suffragists as to the parf play
ed by women in the election. While
President Wilson lost in Illinois and
Oregon, he carried Washington, Idaho,
Montana, Wyoming, Utah, Colorado,
Arizona, Kansas, Nevada and Califor
nia, the other ten states in which
women voted.
Popular Vote on President
New York.—The total popular vote
received in each of the states by Pres
ident Wilson and Charles E. Hughes,

Congressional election returns as
sure President Wilson, in the forth
coming administration, a democratic
senate. But the democrats are un
certain of a plurality in the house.
The vote in New Mexico, which is
still in doubt, probably will determine
which party is to have a plurality of
one over the other. The present
member from New Mexico is a repub
lican. His democratic opponent is
2,693 votes ahead, out of 300 precincts
The balance of power in the next
house will be held by four men, one
a progressive-protectionist from Louis
iana, one from Massachusetts, an in
dependent; one a progressive from
Minnesota an,d the other a socialist
from New York. Their action ap
parently will determine the choice of
a speaker as well as the fate of legis.
lation which is supported or op
posed on purely party lines.
In addition to the hope of electing a
congressman-at-large from New Mexi
co, the democrats had one grain of
comfort. It was that an official count
may disclose that Thomas J. Scully
has been re-elected from the Third
New Jersey district. They contend
ed the chances were that Scully had
been the victor by a few votes over
Robert Carson, his republican oppo
nent, to whom the election previous
ly had been conceded by a narrow
Upon the basis of unofficial returns

democrats and forty-two republicans,

Possibility of Contest.
Washington.—Government officials
here are deeply Interested and not a
little concerned over announcements
from democratic and republican cam
paign leaders that contests might be
expected, with a possibility of legal
proceedings over the votes for presi
dential electors in several of the close
Examination of the decisions of the
supreme court and of the revised
statutes disclosed that electors are
plainly regarded as state officers. The
highest court has held in two leading
cases that questions of their proper
or improper choice are for state elec
tion officers or state courts to deter
mine, and that the federal government
is not lawfully concerned even if
fraud is shown.
The revised statutes provide that
the electors shall meet in each state
and “give their votes" on the second
Monday in January, following election,
at places to be designated by the state
legislature. In the ordinary course of
proceedings, where the right of the
electors to sit is uncontested, their
votes would be counted in the house
of representatives here on the second
Wednesday in February, and this
would be the legal end of the election.
The statutes further provide that
where a state shall have laws made
prior to the election, determining
methods by which controversies or
contests over electors shall be set
tled, whether by judicial proceedings
or otherwise, these laws “shall be
binding and shall govern in counting
the electoral votes.” Officials here
were under the impression that it
would be found that all the states that
may be involved in contests have
laws of this character.
Aside from the direction that the
electoral votes of all the states be
counted in the house on the second
Wednesday in February, there seems
to be nothing to indicate just how
much latitude a state might have in
determining contests so as to have its
vote counted at the fixed time. The
statutes provide that the votes of
the states be forwarded to Washing
ton forthwith after the electors meet
on the second Monday in January and
also say that whenever the certificate
of any state as to its electors has not
been received in Washington on the
fourth Monday in January, a special
messenger shall be sent to the fed
eral district judge in that state, in
whose hands one certificate must be
lodged, and he is requested "forth
with.” to forward his certificate to the
Governors Elected.

Keith Neville Elected Governor;
Hitchcock Re-elected United States
Senator; Other Democratic Candi
dates Win; Wilson Carries the
Nebraska voters decided the pro
hibition question on election day by
adopting amendment No. 3l)0 to tilt
state constitution to prohibit the sale
of intoxicating liquors within the
borders of its commonwealth. The dry
amendment rolled up a majority all
the way from a few hundred to as
much as three thousand in nearly
every county in the state-and won by
approximately 25,000 votes. Douglas
county, where the liquor element put
up one of the most spirited fights
ever waged in the state, went wet by
a majority of about eight thousand,
considerably less than when county
option was voted upon several years !
ago. The dry workers centered their
fight in the county the last few- days
of the campaign and to that effort
credit is given for the big dry- vote.
The amendment must be approved by
the stato legislature and the governor,
after which the law will become ef
tective on May first next year.
Democratic heads of the state i
ticket w-on a sweeping victory. Keith ;
Neville of North Platte for the gover- i
norship defeated Judge Sutton of
Omaha by a majority of approximate
ly 15,000. Wilson carried the state
by about twenty-five thousand votes.
On the senatorship fight Gilbert M.
Hitchcock was re-elected, having
rounded out a total of 15,000 majority,
over John L. Kennedy, his republican
Ldgar Howard, for lieutenant gov
ernor; Charles Pool, for secretary of j
state; Smith, for state auditor; 'Willis
Reed, for attorney general: Hall, for
state treasurer and Vic Wilson, for
railway commissioner, all democratic
candidates, were victorious according
to unofficial returns.
The state superintendency is still
in doubt between Superintendent
Thomas and W. H. Clemmons, demo
crat, and may require an official
count to decide the winner.
Commissioner Fred Beckmann, re
publican, is elected on the face of un
official returns, although by a very
close margin.
Andrew Morrissey has been elected I
to succeed himself as chief justice of I
the supreme court, over Associate
Justice Fawcett.
Lancaster Switches Vote.
Lancaster county, normally republi
can by 2,500 votes, encountered a J
democratic landslide which swept out
the entire court house, which has
been in republican hands for years.
Hitchcock and Neville, however, were
the victims of systematic cutting, and
lost the county by more than 1,500
Douglas County Democratic
Douglas county returns show that i
democratic state and national candi
dates made a clean sweep of the coun
ty. From President Wilson to the j
subordinate state officers, every dem
ocratic candidate carried the county
by good majorities.
Opposition to the prohibitory
amendment piled up a majority
against the measure somewhat larger
than the original forecasts.
Nebraska in Congress.
Nebraska’s delegation in the lower
house of congress will be unchanged
during the coming two years. Re
turns on a considerable portion of
each district shows that the three re
publicans and three democrats who
have been there for the past two years
—and some of them longer, to recall
“Fncle Mose” Kinkaid and Charley

Des Moines, la.—Iowa went repub

the republican state ticket and a ma
jority of the congressmen were also

posed to prohibition, but Harding ran
ahead of his ticket in nearly all coun
ties of the state.

Invisibility in the Field Is the Object
of the Commanders of the
Present Day*
The greenish-gray uniform of tho
German soldier which makes the
kaiser’r, troops almost invisible,
whether in woods, fields or roads, is
very similar to the color worn by
the Confederate soldier in the Civil
war. At first the Confederate uni
tOTBM were a bluish-gray—a color now
known as caaet gray. However, the
fortunes of war soon placed such
cloth at a premium in the Southern
States. Uniforms in many cases
were made at home. They were col
ored with a homemade dye obtained
from butternuts. The butternut gray
was a neutral gray with a greenish
tinge. It defied detection at great dis
tance. There are many alive today
who can testify to the ease with which
Johnnie Reb disappeared from the
landscape or dissolved into it.
The butternut color soon became
popular with the Southern com
manders, who realized its advantages
in aiding concealment. In the latter
part of the war almost all of the
manufactured uniforms were dyed
with butternuts.
In the last few years military lead
ers all over the world have given
more thought to color selection' than
ever before. The adoption of khaki
uniforms, about the time of the South
African war, was the first important
step toward protective coloration. A
uniform that tends to conceal the
movements of troops ranks next to
smokeless powder in military strategy.
Even tbe guns of the artillery, the
gun carriages and the supply wagons
of today are coated with gray. The
war chiefs are closely following na
ture in her deception by means of
protective coloration. “The glint of
the sunlight on the enemy’s guns” is
fast becoming an obsolete war term.—

Physical Ailments Sure to Result
When They Are Lacking—Serve
Fruit, Vegetables, Milk and
Eggs Liberally.
Prepared hy I .a ura Breeze of the De
partment of Farmers' Institutes of the
university of Wisconsin.
Some of the physical ailments result
j in£ from mineral starvation are rick
ets, scurvy, pellagra and anemia. Aa
auetuic person lias weakened vitality
! and resisting power, and is, therefore,
j a prey to colds, grippe and fevers.
The foods rich in minerals are vege
tables and fruits. Dreads and cereals
made from whole grains, eggs, milk
and the natural rice. In the milling of
the white flours, cornmeal, some oat
meal and most cereals, the parts of the
j grains containing the greatest amount
| of mineral substance are eliminated,
! consequently their value as sources of
! mineral foods is reduced.
The housewife, however, can always
supply her table with fruit, vegetables,
milk and eggs. There are such numer
ous ways of serving these foods that
tlieir appearance on the table should
| never become monotonous.
The following recipe otters sugges
tions for an attractive way of serving
cabbage, tbe mineral content of which
is very high:
Imperial Cabbage.—One medium
sized head of cabbage; two carrots,
pared; two potatoes, pared; one cup
ful of cooked meat or chicken (or more,
1 if desired) ; two teaspoonfuls of salt,
, one small onion, one-fourth cupful but
; ter, melted; a little pepper.
Remove decayed leaves of the cab
bage ; form a basket of t he head by re
moving the center and allowing two
layers of tlie outside leaves to remain
attached to the core. Crisp the cab
bage by allowing it to stand in cold
| water. Drain well.
I’ut the cabbage removed from tilt
I center, the carrots, potatoes, onion
and meat through the food grinder, add
butter and seasoning. Mix ail well,
sind fill the cabbage with the mixture.
Tie tlie leaves in place over the
stufling with a clean string, and pluce
the cabbage In a tightly covered bak
ing disli and bake about one. hour
There will be no need of adding water,
j as there is sufficient moisture in the
1 vegetables to steam them.
Apple and Rice Pudding.
Peel small, tart apples, core aud put
them in a baking dish. Have ready
one cupful of boiled rice, mix with it
two cupfuls of hot milk, into which
has been beaten the yolks of three
eggs and one-half cupful of sugar.
Stir in one-half cupful raisins, some
strips of citron and, if you wish to,
one-half cupful blanched almonds. Put
one teaspoonful of sugar into each ap
ple and pour this mixture over them.
Put in oven, covered, and bake until
the apples are tender. This pudding
tr ay be frosted with the whites ol
eggs or served with whipped cream.
Apple Dowdy.
Cut up apples in pudding dish in
quarters (in eighths of apples are hard),
sprinkle about four tablespoonfuls ot
sugar over the apples, a few drops ot
lbmori extract and some bits of but
ter. Add about a tnblespoonful of
water. Make nice piecrust and cover.
Bake about one hour Eat hot with
whipped cream flavored with vanilla
or nutmeg. Fill dish quite full of ap
ples. as they shrink in cooking. Can
bake this Saturday and warm over in
oven on Sunday.
Hint on Broiling Fish.
Has anyone ever tried broiling fish
on paper? Some call it pan-boiled. Ev
erybody knows how flsh sticks to
broiler pan or any other receptacle it
is cooked in, no matter how well
greased. Cut thick brown paper, two
inches larger than pan, so it will set
well upon the sides and ends; butter
and lay fish on; place pan in broiler
pan and set quite close to gas. It
will cook and brown deliriously and,
best of all, leave your pan clean.—Bal
timore American.
Tea Rolls.
