The Second Primary The members of I lie sink 1 s-.iuitc responsible for the killing of the nin- ofV primary bill did not. play fair with tliQ people they represent. The. run-off or second primary is simply ;\ device to make certain that the man who is elected to office actually lias the cndor.-jcMiient of a majority of the voters. \Villi only OIK- primary, the winner in a field of live, six or more candidates may poll only a small percentage of the total vote. • It is not at all improbable thai a* between him and the runner-up a majority of the voters would prefer the latter. The one primary system favors the political machine. With the opposition split, as it usually is, the man with the organization behind liim can usually gel a plurality. If he had to face the strongest of his opponents in a second primary (here would often he a different result. Part of the opposition to the senate bill was probably caused by the burden which it would place upon candidates for office through its requirement that they pay the cost of the second primary. We do not believe that provision belonged in the bill, or that candidates for any office should be required to pay the expenses of conducting elections. Election;:, primary or otherwise, are not held for the benelit of office seekers—at least they should not IK. We do not vote to decide who is to enjoy certain political plums, but to select uien to serve the public. A Pritiiltge. to Die Anthony JIangino, 63, of Guttenberg, N. J., is reversing the whole code. of criminal conduct. Most men who lire given, a death sentence plead for life imprisonment. If they can live, they will accept the prisoi\ background; they say, and while they say it th=re :iry a note of hope in their voices. Some, day they think (here will be a pardon. But Anthony Mangino is different. He has been giveq a 20-year prison term for the murder of his wife, Rose Marie, and he has been plpadin^r with Judge Charles II. Egan to give him the death sentence instead. Mangino will be a very old man when OUT OUR WAY 20 years nre over. The chances are that he will die sometime during (he period, lint, even at that it is unusual for a man to ask for the privilege of sitting in an electric chair. . Maybe .Mangino's nge will explain it. He is through witli the u.-eful period of living. Hi; has reached that age when men look backward, dream dreams, and remember. Ami naturally Marie, who was his wife, comes .slipping back with his yesterdays. He ha;; said that the shooting was an. accident which occurred wiH'it tin 1 two were struggling for the |X)sscssit>:i of a revolver in their grocery store. His backward look isn't going to br a happy one. He hasn't any fultiiv for which to hope. His play didn't end with the encore. It isn't surprising that he wants to die. flic Pcniiuti Mallcv Calls lor Aclion Representative- R;;::cy of Wcodrjlf county has intrcdiiLtd n l;il! a!)|.MCnrl.illii!{ $O.G73,UOO for Hie next blriiniuin tu pny Cnnicilernf.' pi-m:un.s uiirt Ilie Intent 1 , en oiilsLar.iltng pension l:umls.

Of the greatest importancj is immediate treatment of the eyj at the time of the accident. Delay Is always certain to result In infection and infection means greatly added danger of blindness. For this rea- ' son, it is believed that workmen m all factories in which accidents to the eye are fairly frequ-iu should be given information to the following effect: 1. Under no circumstances should an untrained or Inexperienced em- ploye attempt lo remove any foreign body from the eye. 2.
