If any teacher demands the

THE LATE CAMPAIGN
Now that the tumult is over,

The majority of the voters

While the Tribune favored tlie

We are in favor of the majori

A boat line such as proposed
will prove of great benefit to
Richardson county farmers, es
pecially those in the northeast
section. It will furnish a local
market for all the grain, stock
and apples raised in the hills of
Barada and Arago and will
make that land among the most
valuable in the county.

VINOLCURES CHRONIC COUGHS,
COLDS AND BRONCHITIS
After Other Remedies Fail
"I have been troubled with a chronic
cold and bronchitis for a long time
and ha\e tried many remedies without
finding relief. Through the kind sug
gestion of a friend 1 tried Vinol, and
after taking four bottles, am entirely
cured.” A. H. Wilde, 733 8th Avenue,
S. McDonald, 147 \V. Congress
St. Paul, Minn., writes: *T con
tracted a sev. re cold last winter and
thought I would never get rid of it. I
tried Vinol as a last resort, and it lias
completely cured me.”
\ inol combines two world-famed
tonics, the healing, medicinal proper
ties of cod liver oil and tonic Iron, de
liciously palatable and agreeable to the
weakest stomach, For this reason,
Vinol is unexcelled as a strer.gth
builder for old people, delicate chil
dren, weak and run-down persons, af
ter sickness and for Chronic Coughs,
Colds and Bronchitis.

A man over ni the courthouse was
joking a man who hadn't so very
much hair about Ids approaching
baldness the oile r day, when Pan
Linns, a cl< rk. said :
“That reminds me of the story of
the red-headed harbor who was al
ways joking one of his customers
about his lack of hair. The man
stood it as long as he could. One
day he went into the shop and the
bark r began again.
“ M suppose,’ said the barber, as
the man took the chair, ‘that tiny
had run out of hair when tin y came
to you and so you- lost out.’

at the harbor’s red head, ‘nil they

TRAINING THE YOUNG.
Children who have not learned
obedience go into the world i-rippled.
'1'he world belongs to the trained'
men and the trained nation. 'J'wo
nations have come strongly to the)
front in recent yc,.zs—Germany,
which subjects her sons to the1
severest possible discipline, and
Japan, the country in which hoys:
are brought np in the faith that)
they must think of their emperor
first, their duly to their ancestors'
second and themselves last of all.
While the lesson of obedience should j
be taught in the colleges, home is
the best place for its inculcation.— '
Henry H. Stanford, for several
years the leading man with Sir
Henry Irving's company, tells this
■ good storv of the famous actor:
“Sir Henry’s wit was of an almost
Voltairian character. Once while 1
was rehearsing ‘Faust’ with him at
the Lyceum theater in London—we
wore doing the llroekin scene and ho
had occasion to reprove an army of
exuberant supers—ho stopped the
rehearsal and all was silence. Then,
I in that quiet, grim way of his, lie
said: ‘Very charming—but you

IN HIS LINE.
An ambitious politician, who has
at various times been a candidate
for public oHicc, lias a son, a lad cf
eight, who, meditating upon the un
certainties of kingly existence, at
last asked his mother:
“If the king of England should
die, who would be king?”
“The prince of Wales.”
“And if lie should die, who would
1 be king?"
His i i tl - r turned the question
off in some way, when the hoy, with
a deep biv.i; h, said :
“Well, anyway, l hope pa won’t
I try for it.”—Harper’s Magazine.

“have signed an exclusive contract
with one magazine.”
“But now that you are famous,”
protested a friend, “other maga
zines will be writing for your work.”
“And I shall decline their offers,
with thanks. I have even ordered
some printed slips."—Exchange.

“1 had been read in" a hook called

“ ‘1 know the hook,' lie exclaimed;
‘it is a creepy book. I read it the

from my father's parsonage, and you

ARE WOMEN DISCOURTEOUS?
A western writer holds that, wom
en all over the country are less con
siderate of those behind the counter
than men. That the clerks feel that
women regard them as inferior and
often suffer in -ilenee from the atti
tude of superiority displayed by
many of the women customers. He
holds that a man making purchases
in the men'- department will pass
some little pleasantry and meet the
men as equals, if only for the time
being. The above will supply food
for considerable thought and careful
observation. Perhaps tho New Eng
land women arc the exception, to
prove the rule.—Boston Herald.
Dr. Harvey W. Wiley, the gov
ernment's famous food expert, was
talking at Mackinac island about
