might bo that the rural free delivery de
partment showed a deficit at the end of the

The strenuous activity of our buyers

Voting Machines No Good,
Secretary of State . C. Hnywatd today
informed the county numwr of Polk
county that the new voting machines which
j it was expected to use this year cannot be
I iued. The city and county together have
l fBtert something like 15,(00 in the ma-
e, s. One of the reasons given by tho
.ctary of state is that the machines
provide for but forty candidates, while in
I most of the precincts of Polk county there
will be forty-five or m ire candidates. He
further questions whether the machine is
in accordance with law, because It Is neces
sary fdor the voter to vote a straight
ticket first and then do the scratching by
changing the levers afterward. He has
promised to ask the attorney general for a
further opinion, but has Instructed Auditor
Burnett to have ballots printed as formerly.
