From Paltn county this morning es-ina

, of a democratic county clerk that aroused
the Ire of tha republican state committee, j
to which it waa reported, and whilch likely

Inasmuch a there were ne republican
candidates for treasurer, county clerk or
county superintendent, th designation of
the office and tha blank lines which
should hivt followed them were emitted
from the ballot. The county clerk also
left off 'he office of county Judge on the
democratic ballot because there was no
candidate for that office. Republican
voiert got together and wrote in the names
of candldatsa (or thee offices, notwith
standing there was no place fcr them.
Th canvaaaing board In canvassing the
ote threw out mil the ballots updn which
names had been written, thus refusing to
even count them (or supreme Judge or re
gents of the state university.
The county clerk' had In his possession
the opinion ( the attorney general,, which
exprebsly provided that the name of the
office must be printed on the ballot
whether there waajtny candidate or not.
Chairman Harvard of the republican
state centre! committee advised bringing
mandamus to compel the county clerk to
include the names of republican candidates
who received the highest vote on the ballot
at tha November election.

For th last four years Walter Welltnan
of Chicago haa been devoting his time to
preparation for an undertaking to teach
the north pole by airship. He was at
Spltzbergen In ln with a balloon, but post
poned his departure on account of the late
ness of the season. In 1907 a start was
made In the airship America, but the ves

Music a byword and a slander.
Sam Caldwell and Billy Wood had a hur
ried consultation and decided 'hat the
crowd had nerved Itself sufficiently to see
another polo match. Thia one as be
tween the Centaurs snd the French Zou
aves. They all came trotting onto the
field astride of cute little bobby horses.
These hobby horses were a brilliant Idea
for whenever a player lost his polo stick
he could break off his horse's lath tall
and use that. The Frenchmen made two
goals and killed seventeen hobby horses.
Scudder of Doniphan stepped on his horse's
tail and was promptly fallen over by
three players In the mad rush. Then
somebody took his horse under lis arm
and ran away with the ball and that called
the game off.
Next Senor Benjos Cotton, a stately hero
with one eleeve pinned pathetically strofs
his breast, marched in followed by a cage
full of raging beasts. They all obeyed
beautifully until the trainer turned his
