The handling of that $50,000 of the
Itcnnott estate Is certainly a very at
tractive proposition , whether It

mnklng his usunl strenuous campaign
and Is finding that his friends
throughout the county have shown no
falling oft' since last ho tried for of
fice. His opponent Is putting up a
hard fight and the fnslonlsts are not
averse to circulating stories of dls-
affectlons among the republicans In
certain portions of the county , but
Mr. Sehavland's friends Hud that
any such dollcctlons from the ranks
are difficult to locate and bollovo thnt
the returns will show that there la
nono. It la not a wise policy to holt
the ticket merely because tbo con
vention did not do * as certain persons
think It should have done , and It Is
bollovod thnt voters nro far too In
telligent to resort to such tnctlcs.
It Is dnngorous to bo nlivo. Death
lurks everywhere , and people who
are looking for the grim monster us
ually have no difficulty In locating
him In one way or another. People
are killed every day while merely
standing still and doing nothing , but
those who do something undoubtedly
run the greater risks. Thla la aa
true of sports and recreations as any
thing , but It Is evident from figures
given by the Uoston Advertiser that
the more strenuous the sport does
not always mean the most dan
gerous. The Advertiser llnds that
last year , whorena there were
forty-three deaths resulting from foot
ball , there were seventy-one deaths"
as the result of the far less strenuous
game of bowling. In swimming nine
ty-seven persons mot death , while nt
bnsobnll there were 21C fntnl acci
dents nnd those who wout horsebnck
riding contributed 231 to the death
record of the year.

Judge J. U. names Is thoroughly
ompctent to administer justice to
lie .people of the stnto as ono of the
iiombors of the supreme court. The
UHlon members of the court have
aid so , and there are few of the
lolltlclniiH on their side of the fence
vho have had the temerity to quos-
Ion their exceeding good judgment.
In just another week tbo voters
vlll go.to tbo polls and register their

county and precinct candidates. To
ho unprejudiced voter , who will look

strong appeal for his support ,
[ ' 'rlonds of the candidates will have
10 hesitancy at nil in asking for the
inqualllled support of the ticket , and
ho prospects are that tbo majority
for the ticket will bo largo.
C. F. Elsoloy Is an old and re
spected cltl/.en of Madison county
and docs not nsk for the people to
olovnto him to the olfico of judge
without any competency to transact

ties the names of the parties by
which they were nominated will ap

of the candidates for district Judge ,
but there may bo a few in this dis
trict that will not bo so designated.
In which event It may bo well for
iho voter to remember that J. F.
Doyd Is tbo present Judge and tbo re
publican candidate for re-election.
J. J. Clements fs fully deserving of
the honor that would bo conferred
upon him by the people of Madison
county should they again choose
him for tholr sheriff. Mr. Clements
Is conscientious in the performance
of his duties , and with the experience
that two terms have given him In
looking after the Interests of the people -
plo and meting out justice to the

satisfactorily attending to the du
ties of the olfico for another term.
Goo. D. Smith should have a strong
lead for county commissioner. Ho
Is popular In his homo district , and
were It loft to his homo voters there
would bo no question of the result.
Under the now law , however , the
voters of the netlro county will have
a say on the question of who shall

J. L. Rynoarson is eminently quali
fied to open the now olTlco of county
assessor , ns provided for by the re
cent session of the state legislature.
It Is an office thnt the people deslro
to see conducted right ns between
the interests of tbo stnto and the
