Where Depression Hurts ^ The failure of prosperity may be worrying the government of this country, lint the problem ;tl Washington is as nolliing compared with the problem faced in certain governments south of tli-j Isthmus, of Panama. In the United States, a business depression is npt to bring an! unfavorable result at tlie polls, but in South America it is apt to briii!,' on a revolution. It is hardly too much lu say that practically all of the current South American revolts originated in trade depressions 1 .

It is foolish, of course, for* any country to blame hard times on the government iij pcnvfr. But at least (he situation here isn't as bad as it might be. Just suppose that our disillusioned voters were rushing to the iinnoritis instead of to the ballot box! Our Drouth Exhibits When Congressman Will Driver viewed the agricultural and livestock exhibits at the Mississippi county fail- last week he remarked that the drouth relief authorities btltev not be allowed to sec what farms in this vicinity had produced this year or there would be little chance of any aid coming to this county. The congressman, of course, was speaking jocularly, but his remarks gives emphasis to the tragedy in our farm .situation. The drouth relief authorities or anyone else viewing the exhibits at the fair would have little idea that anyone living upon a farm in Mississippi county might suffer thh winter for lack of food for man or beast. The variety and the (|tiality of the products there displayed certainly gave the imprcssioa th?.*, they were gathered in a land of plenty. But it is none-lhe-loss true that a difficult winter is in prospect for a gond many farm dwellers of this county. And tils drouth and the low price of cotton, while perhaps the direct and immediate cause of their predicament, are not the root of the matter. The drouth made the growing of food OUT and feed more difficult than in normal years but, as the fair exhibits showed, it certainly did not make it impossible. The low price of cotton has made ready money scarce, hut it ditl not create a food and feed problem for those who followed a fond and feed program designed to supply them with plenty mid to spare. The farniuv whose exhibits Congress- •Tnaii Driver saw at the fair are not going to suH'cr the coming winter. Farmers who follow their methods in the future will have equal protection against .such calamities as half-price, half-crop cotton. The Windmill Cuba M.

Widespread Interest in tiie New- York gubernatorial contest is due both to the part prohibition lias been playing in politics up there and lo the fact '.Iiat if the Republicans happen to win, the Democrats of the country will have, to =tart looking for a 1032 presidential candidate with a grand free- for-all in prospect. Governor Franklin D. Roosevelt Is standing for re-election, opposed by U. S. District Attorney Charles H. TutllB of New York City. Tuttle Is a strong candidate, anyway, and the recent disclosures of praft among Tammany leaders in Now York have provided him with neat issue because Tammany is such an important, part of the New- York Democracy. He has come out for the rc|M?al of thq Eighte&nth Amendment, ridding himself of the dismal drawback of being a dry or straddling candidate in a distinctly wet state. The big threat to Tuttlo. one very likely to defeat him. is the plan of Ihe drys lo run an independent candidate who will cut into the upstate O. O. P, vole. The Tammany llnndir.-ip RcoscvelL, now regarded as a probable presidential nominee in 1032, finds himself faced with the l.ict that Tammany votes are n icqulsitc- for victory but that Tammany politics is his main handicap. He must lake a firm stand against Tammany corruption but still can't afford to gel Tammany unduly incensed at him.

Then oi'.e can imagine her thoughts and her feelings as Jesus begun His public ministry, as she felt the beauty of His thoughts and of His words but felt also deep misgiving and fear in her soul, as she saw Him compelled, even in His first ptiuiic words at Nazareth, to flee for safety from those who would have persecuted Him foi blasphemy. The experiences of tlie few years of that earthly ministry must have been fraught with deep joy ami with deep sadness for Mary. Then came the climax which more than anything else, reveals the greatness jorily cf about 275,000. The Illinois i fi^ht lorks like a horse race, but'.

Hc r next greatest concern is the question hov, many voters cppose the idea of having a woman senator and how many are opposed to Mrs. Mc- Ccrmick in particular. In Washington, Mrs. McConnick has; lost much sympathy because rhc employed detectives io shadow Chairman Nyc of the Sunate prlimry ir>,vrstii!.itir.B committee and then boldly defied Nyc to do' scmcthing aboir_ it. Illinois voters, however, may r cjard her as just 'a tpuiiky little gal from home who ! isn't letting a bunch of senatorial smnrt-alecks put anything over on her.
