WOOD EDITORIAL ONE after another the Progressive organizations in the various States are falling in line for the Republican ticket. There is wrath in Louisiana, where lives Mr. Parker, who got second place on the ticket at Chicago and who has not yet resigned, but Louisiana doesn't figure in any event. In Indianapolis a few leaders of the Bull Moose met recently, but aside from expressing wrath against Roosevelt, compared with which their language toward Taft is gentlemanly, they could do nothing except threaten to make trouble. In New York city there are some disgruntled leaders of the lesser sort who want to fight, but have no banner to fight under. Pennsylvania and Minnesota have just joined the ranks of the regulars. Among those who led the Bull Moose forces four years ago not one of prominence has failed to give in his adherence to Hughes. In the West there has been, putside of Indiana, almost unanimous support of Hughes. William Allen White, who was the leading apostle of the Bull Moose ^among the corn States, is leading the fight for Hughes, with no doubt as to the result. By the time early frosts begin to fall there will be no Bull Moose whatever. Those who normally were Democrats will return to the fold and the Republicans will get the rest—and they will be enough unless something unexpected takes place in the meantime. At Washington recently some of the Southern leaders sat down to figure how they were going to re-elect Wilson. Their figures are illuminating. They added to the solid South all of those States •which used to be called doubtful, including New York. They threw in Illinois, Wisconsin and Nebraska for good measure and then laid claim to fifty electoral votes in addition, winding up with ihe assertion that the Republican leaders were thoroughly discoursed. This isn't campaigning. It is arm-chair boasting. Democrats know very well that they have small chance of carrying New York. Wilson was in a minority of nearly 200,000 four years ago, and two years later the Republicans carried the State with ease. Last fall there was no general ticket, but the Republicans carried the Legislature by a great majority and cast a majority of votes in so doing. In Illinois the Democrats are almost as badly divided as were the Republicans four years ago, and no Democrat in that State is in the least hopeful. A lot of water will run under the bridge before November, but the present situation is statistically, strategically and personally overwhelmingly in favor of Hughes. The Democratic leaders may talk all they please, but they must gain a million Totes or more to elect Wilson this fall. Where do they expect to get them?—Phil'a Inquirer. s IF we never have to use the great body of men How at the border—and we hope such is the : case—we need never be sorry that they were sailed out. The one thing it did do was to prove to us how very unprepared we really were. Imagine men going through this land that is flowing ing with milk and money for twenty-four hours •without a bite to eat ! Then stretch your mind a fcit further and picture how they would fare fighting down in Mexico. We would hate to see a repetition of the awful food supply they had dur- tpg the Spanish-American war. *• '. i SOME of these days Woodrow Wilson will get i §0 near a war that even his classical English deft changes of mind will not avail to pre» clash.

American workmen who desire continuous rather than intermittent employment should be interested in the view which British manufacturers t.»ke of the effect of a tariff law in this country. The Democratic free trade measure was passed early in October, 1913, On December 15 of that year, the New York "Times" published a London dispatch which said: "British manufacturers are reluctant to embark their capital in preparing for the demands expected from America until they are convinced that the new tariff policy is not likely to be reversed by a popular reaction." ^ In other words, British manufacturers realized that a free trade policy would enable them to sell large quantities of goods in the United States, but could not build extensions to their factories in order to supply our markets unless they could have assurance that America would not reinstate its protective tariff policy. The reinstatement of the protective tariff would mean the shutting out of the British goods and the closing down of the extensions to British mills. Conversely, it would mean the opening of American mills and the employment of larger numbers of American workmen. The "popular reaction" which the British manufacturers feared has already made its appearance. This was shown not only in the election of 1914, when the Democratic majority in the House was cut from 166 to 34, but has been shown in later state and district elections, and will result in an overwhelming defeat of the Democratic party in the Congressional elections of 1916. The British manufacturers could readily foresee that the American laboring man, who, fortunately has the right to vole, would not stand for an economic policy which encourages ihz extension of British factories and the closing of factories in his own country.—Greensburg Press. Our War Prosperity. Dubuque Times-Journal—Our normal exports of barbed wire amount to about $4,000,000 annually. During the nine months ended March, 1916, we exported $16,000,000 worth of this commodity. Nearly all of it went to Europe. Was it because the nations at war are fencing off their bounderies, or going into stock-raising? Not at all. It was to string barbed-wire entanglements. In every stage of the manufacture of this barbed ' wire labor received a benefit, and stockholders in mine and factory companies got increased dividends. Our exports of meat and dairy products during this same nine months totaled $145,000,000, nearly all of which went to the belligerents. Farmers, stockholders, and laborers profited by the huge demand for meat and dairy products. While this export trade was going on the Democratic Campaign Committee was busy composing publicity matter to show that "Democracy brings era of unexampled prosperity." The only way they can prove it is to show they were responsible for the European war. About Foreign War Reports. People generally are suspicious of the news coming from the foreign war, and well they may be. Occasionally one hears charges that the American press is either subsidized by the allies or that American editors are prejudiced. Neither charge is likely to find acceptance by those understanding the actual conditions governing war reports from abroad. It is noticeable, however, that every time any member of the allies want to make a loan in America the cause of the allies finds favor in the foreign news reports. It may be recalled also that many months ago, when a big foreign loan was being negotiated in New York, a series of sweeping victories were recorded for the English, French and Russians. Notwithstanding the reported victories for the allies the Germans seemed to be progressing and were constantly battling near the enemies goal. Right now an effort is making in New York to float a French loan of something like $100,000,000 and from the day the proposed loan was broached the war reports have greatly favored the side of the allies. The Germans may be getting the worst of the fighting, of course, but all reports from the contending forces come through English channels and it might be reasonable, therefore, to suspect that the reports are colored to influence the money market in this country. American newspapers want to print the news. They have no object in coloring reports, but most news reports coming to America are censored in England and England is deeply concerned in seeing that the allies get money where- ever it is to be gotten.—Greensburg Press.

You can easily make such a friend by putting away small sums not needed for present use. The Farmers Bank of Indiana, Pa. Identifying Poison Ivy. At this season of the year, when the resemblance is most pronounced, the dangerous poiscn ivy is often confused, and frequently with painful consequences, with the common ivy or Virginia Creeper. The two may be readily identified, according to A. A. Hansen, of the department of botany at the Pennsylvania State College School of Agriculture, if it is remembered that the poison ivy has three leaflets to the group. Boston ivy may be distinguished from both of these by its simple leaves, somewhat resembling those of the maple. "Poison Oak," so frequently referred to, is not an oak, but simply another name for the poison ivy. The poison sumac, another dangerous contact-poison plant, has leaves resembling the ash or elder, and grows only in swamps. The popular idea that the wind will carry the poison of the ivy is not strictly true, as contact with some part of the plant is necessary. However, the wind may carry the pollen which will cause infection, so it is well to keep away from a flowering poison ivy plant. The poison may also be communicated by the contact of the skin with an article that has previously had contact with the ivy. Some people are immune to plant poisoning. In case plant poisoning is suspected, the oil which causes the trouble may be readily removed by prompt and* thorough washing with soap and water followed by an application of alcohol. This method is not useful if the poison has already taken effect. Wilmer Stewart Quitting the Harness Business Every set of Team and all Work Collars and Harness Supplies at cut prices.

N. average of fifteen to eighteen per cent of eggs marketed during the summer is either a total or a partial loss; hence prices, they say, are based upon good eggs only. Better methods of caring for the eggs and better packing before they are shipped would reduce this unnecessary loss. A few definite rules for the prevention of loss in summer eggs Marriages.

The United States has 1,000 and of these only 600 are available, the others being in the Philippines, in the Canal Zone or in use in coast fortifications. Yet the Democrats in Congress objected to permitting the State of Illinois to buy machine guns to be presented to the Illinois militia when it was mustered into the service of the nation. As a matter of fact, Carranza probably has more machine guns than we have—and every one of them was made ia this country and was permitted to reach Carrauza by the grace of Woodrow Wilson.

(1) Produce sterile or infertile eggs. (2) Keep eggs in a cool, dry place. (3) Have clean nests and plenty of them. (4) Do not keep eggs near kerosene or decaying vegetables. They absorb odors readily. (5) Market the eggs frequently. Holding does not improve quality, Frank B.
