TO ODT DEMOS'
Republicans Cut Down Bourbon
Majority to About One,
HOPEFUL OF GAINING SWAY
New York, Npv. 9. With thirty
congressional districts to be heard
from tt 10:45 p. m., 202 republicans,
199 democrats, two progressives, one
Independent and one socialist, have
been elected to the house of repre
sentatives for the Sixty-fifth congress.
Of the thirty districts yet to be heard
from, jeventeen are represented in the
present congress by democrats and
thirteen republicans. Should these
districts be unchanged the next house
would be composed of 216 democrats
215 republicans and four scattering,
who might elect to affiliate with eilliet
Fight Is Close. "
At this hour returns are so indefinite
that it is impossible to declare whether
the democrats will maintain control.
If they do, it is certain to be by
greatly reduced margin and one that
will scarcely give a good working ma
jority. In fact, unless democratic
gains are made in the districts yet un
decided indeDendent minority mem
bers might seriously interfere with the
re-cicciion 01 apeaKer iarK ana tne
. organization or important committees.
Republican leaders are still hopeful
ot controlling the house. It thev sue
ceed, Minority Leader Mann will be
their candidate for speaker of the
house and Representative Fordney of
Michigan will become the majority
leader and chairman of the ways and
means committee, succeeding Repre
sentative Llaud Kitchin ot Worth
Q. O. P. Gains Made.
Republicans have "made important
gains in Illinois and7 Wisconsin. Of
the democrats defeated in Illinois are
Buchanan, who is under indictment for
alleged conspiracy in connection with
the Labor Peace council, involved in
charges of attempts to restrain trade
in munitions. Other Illinois democrats
defeated are Travener and Stone. In
Indiana, Cullop, Cline and Gray lost
their seats. Konop and Burke of-Wis
consin. Taggart of Kansas, Riordan
and Driscoll of New York and Casey
of Pennsylvania were other democrats
who lost their seats. Among well
known republicans defeated are Ben
nett, New York; Hopwood and
Mathews, Ohio, and Roberts, Massa-
Four Demos Lose.
In the senate four present demo
cratic members, according to the lat
est indications, have been defeated.
They are Senators Kern and Taggart
of Indiana, Martine of New Jersey
and Chilton of West Virginia. Three
republican senators, Lippitt of Rhode
Island. Clark ot Wyoming and Suther
land of Utah, also have lost their seats
on the basis of the returns. '
The senate will remain, under demo
cratic control by a reduced majority
of ten or twelve, dependent on the
outcome ltTNew Mexico, where A, A.

lead over frank A. Hubbell, nom

senate stands: Democrats, 53; repub

Clark of Wyoming and Sutherland
of Utah also have lost their seats on
the basis of the returns. The defeat
of Senator Kern of Indiana bv Harrv

publican national committee, takes
from the democratic organization its

ators mentioned for the succession are

Much About Debate
A real debate developed in the ar

cussion, but neither Superintendent P.
M. Whitehead of Red Cloud or Su

Superintendent Gordon objected to
selecting only brains or-winning ma

who need training the most. "You
make a god of winning," he said.
Consensus of opinion was to prepare
all girls and boys for debate.
Who should judge high school de

question. Students, faculty members
and outsiders were favored by vari
Prof. Fogg advocated umpiring de
bates along the lines of what the state
schools were trying to teach. "There
should be a distinction between a de

or oratory. You should distinguish
argument from piffle." Students were
poor judges, he said.

POLITICS WITH TEACHERS
Mr. Jones had a new msld, who appeared
at the door of the library one afternoon,
where her mistress was reading:
"There's W coal, mum," said the do
mestic, 'an' the fires are aoliv out."
"No coal!" cried the mistress. In surprise.
"Why didn't you tell me before?"
"1 couldn't tell you there was no eoal,

Ha All druggists. AaT.
Teachers of Lincoln, Aurora and
Kearney are peeved at something and
just won't play with the Nebraska
State Teachers' association in Omaha
If these teachers themselves are
not peeved, their superintendents or
other superiors are, for they would
not let them come to the association
this year. r t . '
The talk of the association dele
gates in the lobby at the Hotel Rome
is "the boycott," by which is meant
the organized effort on the part of
a number of towns, headed by Lin
coln, Aurora and Kearney, to com
bine against the success of the asso
ciation at Omaha this year.
Lincoln Not Here.
Lincoln, which normally brings 300
or more teachers, is not here at all,
or only in a fragmentary and insur
gent fashion, for the thirty or more
teachers who are here from Lincoln
seem to have broken away in spite
of the effort to hold them back. Su
perintendent Fred Hunter of the Lin
coln schools had not appeared on the
scene by noon of the second day of
Superintendent A. L. Caviness of
Kearney and Superintendent A. E.
Fisher of Aurora held their teachers
The enrollment of some two dozen
stray teachers from Lincoln is smil
ingly referred to in the lobby as a
great contrast to the huge registra
tion from that city only a few years
ago when they attempted vto regis

Of course, Miss Ruth Pyrtle is

Thomas Not Campaigning.
By far the most active camnaien
made for president of the association
is that ot Miss Kuth Pvrtle. Miss
Martha L: Powell, principal of Long
school in Omaha, is getting some
votes. Principal K. F. Adams of the
Commercial High school in Omaha is

A. O. Thomas, state superintendent, is
again mentroned tor president, and is
getting many voteslvalthough he is not
campaigning for the place himself.
"I don't know what I'd do with it,"
he said. "I certainly have enough to
do as state superintendent."
The name of E. U. Graff, superin
tendent of the Omaha schools, is also
mentioned, although Mr. Graff is by
no means seeking the nomination.
Helen Stanley and Francis McMil
len will entertain the teachers this
evening at the Auditorium, Miss Stan
ley with her soprano voice and Mr.
McMillen with his violin music. This
feature of the program is given com
plimentary to the teachers by the
bureau of publicity of the Commercial
club of Omaha. 1
Prof. A. H. Waterhouse, superintendent of
schools at Fremont, In town for the teachers'
convention, was greeting faculty members
at Central High school. Prof. Waterhouse
was formerly: principal .of Central High.
The Latin play. "Roma non Delenda Kst,"
presented by. Central High school Latin stu
dents, under the dtrertipn of Miss Susan
Paxson, was a big hit of the convention. -The
school auditorium whs filled for this event.
Are Best Teachers
"Rural teachers should be born and
raised on the farm in order that they
should be familiar with rural con
ditions and life," declared Pro
fessor M. C. Hcffler of Peru before
the rural school section of the State
Teachers' convention at the Hotel
Fontenelle. "Many city girls come to
the rural schools to teach who have
never been in the country, before.
They teach what they have learned
regardless of its anDlication to rural
That rural teachers are mostly be
tween 18 and 19 years old only and
that 90 per cent are women, were
interesting facts brought out by Pro
fessor Heffler's paper. "Young men
use rural teaching only as a stepping
stone to other professions," he said.
Sends Wheat High!
A bullish government crop report,
coupled with a strong foreign demand
for wheat, started grain prices on
tlicir way toward the top. Wheat
made a gain of 2 to 4 cents per bushel
on the Omaha market, selling at
$1781.85 per bushel. Receipts
were sixty carloads. Omaha sold
200,000 bushels for export.
Corn was about as strong as wheat
and gained 1 to 3 cents per bushel
selling at 9091J4 cents per bushel,
old and new crop holding in about the
same notch. Receipts were thirty
Oats advanced Yt cent to 1 cent
and sold at SifeS34 cents per bushel.
Seventeen carloads were on the market.
French Are Much
Interested .in the
U. S. Elections
Paris. Nov. American elec
tion is being followed with the deep
est interest, the news having the
place of honor in most morning pa
pers. The commentators, mindful of
the dramatic surprise of ( yesterday
when the supposedly Hughes victory
was turned into a possible defeat, are
reluctant to commit themselves.
The majority of the comment is
similar to fhat of Stephen Pichon in
the Petit Journal, who expresses the
belief that the victory of either can
didate will have little effect on Amer
ican policy as far as the big questions
interesting France are concerned. It
is also pointed out that the present
administration will remain in power
in' any event until March 4, and that
many things may happen between
now and then.
The Matin remarks that while a
victory for Mr. Hughes might mean
a more vigorous international policy
it would also mean a protectionist
regime. J he Matin comments that
this change, while unimportant in
time of war, might be awkward for
French business interests on the re
turn of peace.
Many Doctors Use Musterole
So many sufferers have found relief
in Musterole that you ought to buy a
small jar and try it.
Just spread it on with the fingers. Rub
it in. First you feel a gentle glow, then

routs the twinges, loosens up stiffened
joints and muscles.
Musterole is a clean, white ointment,
made with oil of mustard. It penetrates

It takes the place of the mussy, old

Musterole is recommended for bron

The Easiest Way
To End Dandruff
Indigestion. One package j
proves it 25c at all druggists.
There is one sure way that never
fails to remove dandruff completely
and that is to dissolve it. This des
troys it entirely. To do this, just get
about four ounces of plain, ordinary
liquid arvon; apply it at night when
retiring; use enough to moisten the
scalp and rub it in gently with the fin
By morning, most if not all, of your
dandruff will be gone, and three or
four more applications will completely
dissolve and entirely destroy every
single sign and trace of it, no matter
how much dandruff you may have.
You will find, too, that all itching
and digging of the scalp will stop in
stantly, and your hair will be fluffy,
lustrous, glossy, silky and soft, and
look and feel a hundred times better.
You can get liquid arvon at any
drug store. It i is inexpensive, and
four ounces is all you will need. This
simple remedy has never been known
to fail. Advertisement.
