2000 majority The result of the election was not a surprise to the Democrats of Adair county The Republicans have again swept the country and Mr Roosevelt is in the saddle ft r four more years But little if any hope of a Democratic victory was entertained at any time and the result is not a surprise One consolation common to all Democrats is the fact that they made a clean light and theprincipleseJ Tle victory belongs to Republican voters the responsibilities are theirs The guagers rod will be used and the cancellation of stamps will still be di rected by the G O P but Democrats

nicknamed Ceese and was thei property ofa native wltchman He had been taught tu turn the switch at points while hisI master looked on but he soon showed such Intelligence In the work that he came to do It alone locking the rod and other details as well asa man The engineers did not object to his minis tratlons and had great confidence In his ablllty He would jump on the shifting engine as It passed on Its way to move cars about the yard but only after he had opened the switch for It But as soon as the story of the ba boons work came to the ears ot the otllclals they were forced to bounce

skilled In phrase hereticaliwhen only one side or the question Is looked at It can even give an Idea practicability to the proposition that the financing of a party political campaign Is properly a matter of pub lic information and that party managers should In some way be required to publish in full their receipts and dis bursements Indeed the enthusiastic advocates ot this plan work them selves up to the point of insisting that the public Is entitled to examine the book accounts of the respective party committees Tending the discovery ofany way to compel such a publication andexhlbltlt Is argued that the Chairman ot each committee should take high moral ground and faithfully publish minutely the recelptsand disbursements and tell the purpose to which themoney was applied One journal grandiloquently declares that that the people have a eldar right to this Information There Is so much that Is constantly going wrong In the worldso great a field tot regeneration

they do with It they will not get It Financing a campalgtil not a business proposition It Is the collection ot as much money as tht party financiers can get their hando on anddisbursement under a system that necessarily Involves much misapplication ot funds The campaign contributor and the campaign disbars er always count on a large percentage ot sequestration They base to Book accounts are

ahazardous step to publish areport showing how much the spellbtnders were graded by the book ot arithmetic It would be shocking to seethe details ofall the expense accounts A managing politician does

a commandant at farmhouse some twenty miles away He got the men ready and they sat out It was rather a desperate enterprise but they gut to the farmhouse all right only to find however that the elusive Boer had cleared out ill some un known direction- It was vitally important that the British force should get some information for It became a question perhaps of the Boers catching thbm and not they catching the Boer commandant At the farm lookingBoerjor Shpeley asked the boy if the commandant had been there and ho said taken hy surprise yes Whero has lie gone was th next question and
