Be prepared for six weeks more

A straw vote , taken at the
meeting of the republican county
central committee , on Monday ,
resulted in 12 votes for Taft and
2 for Htifrhes.
Mr. Bryan lias declared in
favor of instructed delegations to
the democratic national conven
tion. Docs he fear Mr. Johnson
as a rival , or docs he believe that
to be fore-warned is to be fore
armed. _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
The United States Supreme
Court , by a unanimous decision ,
has decided an organised boycott ,
is a combination in restraint of
trade , and is therefore unconsti
tutional * We have not heard
from Mr. Bryan , however , on the
subject. _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
Harry K. Thaw is permitted to
cat at the "Knife and Fork table , "
in the hospital for the crimminal
insane of New York state. Of
the more than seven hundred in
mates of that institution , only
fifty-four are shown that distinct

spoons. Harry , certainly , is now

At the republican caucuses to
be held in the various precincts
within the next few week ? , every
republican voter will have an
opportunity to express his prefer
ence , by secret ballot for his
choice for republican candidate
for president. Ballots will be
furnished to all who care to ex
press themselves. Let every re
publican keep this in mind , and
attend the party caucus.
The great American ilect of
war vessels has rounded Cape
Horn and safely passed the Strait
of Magellan , the most dangerous
portion of its trip. So far the
licet has not met with a mishap
of any consequence. No such
a trip by so large a llecl was ever :
undertaken before. The Ameri
can sailor is equal to any occasion.
From old Paul Jones to Mr.
Kvans , our men of war , as a
whole , have been manned by as
splendid seamen as any nation > .
has need of. This trip will be a
splendid test of the skill of the
officers and a practical schooling
for the crews. As long as other
nations maintain large lleets , our
country must ale be prepared to
resist the agressor. and every
American heart should thrill with
admiration lor the splendid fight
ing force represented by our navy
now on the way to the Pacific.
The recent message of the
president to congress , rings with
no uncertain tones. Those who
anticipated that there would be
any disposition on his part to
take a backward step in his works
of reform have been undeceived.
No one can be mistaken as (1.to
where the president stands on the
great national questions. This
is an age of plain speaking. Sec :
retary Hav , in his dealings with
foreign powers ) while secretary
of state , instituted a policy of
saying what he meant ) which was
a new departure in diplomacy.
He was one of our very greatest
and most successful diplomatists.
The people are now demanding
that the men in politics speak niter
plainly. Why should an officer ,
or a candidate conceal his views
on the questions in which hi !
constituents are interested ? An
awakening of the public con
science , necessarily precedes all !
great reforms. We are to beef
I congratulated upon the change of
public sentiment in this line.

Having finished her afternoon' *

Hint n small purse , which contained
the remainder of her money , about
four dollars , was missing from her
handbag. So. surmising oho had cither
carelessly mislaid the purse Or baea

Acting on this declaration , the lady
hurried over and cornered the lad be
fore ho was aware of her propinquity.
Seeing no chance of escaping with
the purse nnd Ita contents the boy
complied with the lady's demand and
handed over the pocketbook.
"Now , my honest lad , " she then
said , turning to the first boy , who had
followed her across the street , "thoro'B

As this boy ran off clutching his re

Selling Dread In Old London.
Dread , which , Hko coals , Is advancing
In price , was also formerly a matter of
state regulation. In the thirteenth
century , for example , an enactment
was in force that the profit of the
baker on each quarter of wheat was to
bo , for his own labor , six cents , nnd
such bran as might bo sifted from
the meal. Again , In Ixjtidon , only
farthing and half-penny loaves wore al
lowed to bo made , and It was a sorloua
offense for a baker to sell loaves of
any other slzo. Nevertheless , other
kinds of loaves
wore sometimes smug
gled Into the market , hidden in vari 1-
ous ways under a towel , In the folds
of a garment or beneath the arms. A
curious ordinance In the city of Lon
don forbade the baker , If ho sold by re -
tail , to sell bread In or before his
house , before Uio oven In which it
was Imkod , or Indeed nnywhoro but
In the market assigned to him. There
seems to have been a str.ingo preju
dice against bread mailo In South-
wark , ono reason given bolng "because
the bailers of Southwark arc not
nmonnblo to the Justice of the city. "

At what ago Is a man nt his best

Frank Rosewater's New Book.
Never in the history of litera
ture has a bolder or more striking
ing creation made its appearance
than Prank Kosewater's story ,
"The Making of a Millennium. > !
Small in compass the book is re
plete with momentous truths
and grand utterances a revela
tion of prophecy the like of
wbjch has not been issued since
the sermon on the mount. Like
all great works , its style is sim
ple and its plans practical. It
pictures an ideal realm known
as Templaria , where they em
ploy a system called Centrism ,
founded on property in jobs
Jobs are treated as a product
solely of consuming and there
fore belonging exclusively to
consumers. The system dis
tributes these to the consumers
exclusively thru a special cur
rency called centry one centret
being given by the seller for
each dollar received from the
buyer. These centrots are orders
on trade or jobs , and their use
excludes the non-consumer from
taking from the consumer
his jobs as well as from bidding
against him in the competition
or work. No one being allow
ed to participate in the labor
supply except in response to
enuine demand , a true ratio of
supply toward demand is pre
served , and honest values de
termined. Subjected to this test
capital is compelled to compete
and labor commands a full pro
duct wage as well as a security
tieretofore unheard of.
The employment of centry
bridges the gap between the
consumer and producer , and rescues -
cues industry from capitalistic
influences which stille and tax
industry and divert it into un.
productive channels and which
distort the growth of the indus
Centrism seems in fact to be
the real antithesis of capitalism ,
producing an equilibrium of
wealth rather than common
ownership. It leads to an elas
tic solidarity , meeting the high
est aims of the socialist without
interference with private prop
erty. It surely looks as if this
was to be the coming order , and
there can be no doubt but it will
ere long be the dominant politi
cal issue everywhere.
The book is embellished with
a liberal sprinkling of pictorial
illustrations and is .nil in all in
tensely absorbing. It should
be read by everybody. Cloth ,
