Tha following circular letter was Issued
from tha llepublican club headquarters
yesterday. It crystaliuea the Ideas of the

to act along tha lines outlined.
The all Important lasuea to be considered
In this campaign la the personality. Indi
viduality and integrity of the candidate for
which you are to vote, and tha ability he
mlaht have to aid In the passage of legis
lation In the event of his election. Isnues
that are fruitless of results, even though
they emanate from republicans, are Idle
tales and only for the purpose of deception.
It la a well understood fact that the gov
ernor and legislature of this state will be
republican, consisting of men of actions
and not lames, for this county to awnd
democrats to the legislature at Lincoln
would mean that their ability to pass
legislation of any character would not be
considered as an Issue.
If you were unwlxe enough to take aerl
nnalv tha circular which has been Issued

I that the only question of vital Importance

'Knock at a Venture," by Eden Pbllpotts,

opens with "Mound by tba Way," by far
the longest and best, which ranks worthily
with "The Secret Woman" In Its under
standing and Interpretation of the emotions.
the exaltations and weaknesses of human
character In Its least complex. Its most
primitive modern embodiment. It la a tale
of love and lenlously, of surrender and
tragedy, whose protagonist Is a simple
young Dartmoor peasant. Love plays its
part In two more of these tales, and In
bota the outcome Is not what the routine
of Action would lead one to eypect. Through
all these tales there Is more optimism here
than one usually finds In this writer's work
-the Dartmoor peasant talks with all the
shrewdness of his class, with all the racl
ness and richness of his dialect. Published
by the Maemlllnn company.
