>*^«»> HJ. 1» f r-, f ,~ „,. r-- - r.» f"~* ., , Tj 75 !TS thrtnrgh »..h« l« ths city curler district of sY-rlins Is Big cf&T or £O ^ofrs** pof^t!^ informed *rrH*f Is taking the Hx--p5iWit»,n pnrty to issk * big business men &4 a genera! rule «ipp«rt the Republican ticket. One of the reason* can be wry easily understood when any man or woman consider* for » Ifttnute that ?{>*• conduct of the government. tsf the UnttFtt Btfit*s In the biggest business proposition in the world. The government of th« United Stales handler blllloai of dollars every y?sr. Our government Is the mo?t tremendous, the most highly organlucd, the most far reaching business institution exist- tog on the earth. Big business men know something: of Hie requirements needed to direct, the conduct of such n big business as the government of the United States, ror that reason it Is natural for them to support a political party which produces and offers men for the presidency who have the exr perience and rapacity to handle big proposi- t ions, Naturally with big business paying hundreds of millions of taxes Into the government for Its support, they naturally desire the greatest possible efficiency In the Administration of government. A wasteful, extravagant, corrupt administration (and none of them can PSCftpe fioine of thai sort of public officials) simply ndda to the burden of taxation of every person in the county. Tho small business man, the working man. « portion of whose money is finally filtered into the hands of some big corporation, which pays big government taxes, is being taxed on every cent he expends for the support of the government. The.foolish man who says, "I pay no government taxes," is paying government taxes on every pound of butter he buys, on every ounce of bread he uses, on every pound of coffee the family consumes, on every stitch of clothing he wears. Everybody who eats, wears clothing, lives in a homo or a rented room, helps to support the government ol the United States. Np one can escape. A part of the rent, a part-ol-the- profits xm_the «iothlng. or-food. a certain per cent of everything a man eats, wears, or uses finally reaches the profits of some concern that pays government taxes. That means the Individual himself, no matter how small his wages, is Indirectly helping to pay some of the billions necessary to conduct the government of the United States. As a result big men of big business have regarded heretofore for the most part the candidates of the Republican party for president as better equipped than the offerings usually made by the Democratic party. That condition prevails again this fall. There seerns to be an overwhelming belief that Herbert Hoover is an outstanding business man. that he Is an able executive, that he will be a business type of president, that his qualifications along these lines are preeminently superior' to those of Governor Smith, who is regarded as more of a successful politician than as a business man. While there are other questions of great importance and other principles, which will cause men to vote one way or another, the really great pulling power of Herbert Hoover ever Governor Smith is the belief that the big captains of industry, to the man who carries a dinner pail, that Hoover will bring to the presidency a business experience that will be ol tremendous advantage to the country as a whole. What Is Wrong In Whiteside? Day by day and hour by hour, men of capacity and affairs whose sympathies are exceedingly wet, are repeating over and over and over again, that conditions are worse here in Whiteside county under prohibition than they were when the saloons were in operations. Every man and woman who stops to think knows that conditions are tre- mendousJy better now than when the saloons were the dictators in Whiteside county. That there is bootlegging, there is no question, but —tlwt-44-Js-en-ft—terg* eeaie-ls -not-apparait- to the casual observer. The Whiteside county grand jury at its recent October term answered the charges of wholesale bootlegging in £n£ or two ways, not a single indictment being iouud against any bootlegger whatever. If there is such wholesale bootlegging as is claimed certainly in all of Whiteside county there at* still some public official*, some public law enforcement officers who still believe enough in the law to have secured in- dictaiciits against such characters. Or, on the ether hand, the Whiteaide county public olfldato paid by the public to enforce the law* have simply laid down on the Job wholesale and retail. Did they or didn't they? That to the question. WMte the average thinking iadivMual does cot agree with tto wholesale charges made by the we& made for the purpose e«- cJusivtJy of breftklug cUiwu KaioieeuuHA, wfails tl«s average iudivUJu*! dosa bel**v« that can- are vary much better under „_, , they s»rc quite iitely to waMtr if . bteu enoijgh Yi«te&kt& of tba |&ws to „ . .-- "l"far fti/tn Jte tfci» fca# Wtoiteaide ceuuty ia tfce tot with o«ly five tadivkiuai* eauaty, thii secaoa ol r'i |ti twin*, K*n?"t »ry p ".-^ OJcl*h^rp^ *!we ths shifts from Smith to Honwsr, IQ y thc-rf are thirty-six «tieh pffpfr?. !n :ixrwn. pnt? !n O With Mirh ft drift Sn the I>rmofrRt!e (witi'h tivpr^ !>*?m9 to hp no qn«'«tinn that th* fp^»!~ !ns of opposition in th» D*m<x:nkMe psrty on the par! of dry votrr* will extend f>.!?o to large in the nort!wtn sl.»te«. 80 f«r as few if any northern newspaper* of Influence has switched from the Republican support to Smitl».

They know that Smith's election caiihol ehruigr a single law. He can only nullify by appointing wets to enforce the dry laws. Enough of that hftr, been done. A LITTLE ABOUT EVERYTHING (Robert Qtiillen) Thrift urges 5-011 to save your cake until you are too old to est it. The installment plan cuts n slice whllo you still have nn appetite. There's one nice thin;? about poverty. Your children don't feel disgraced if you fnil to live tip to it. A to.vii i.Mi't dead until its only hope of publicity is to send out n story about a cat adopting a pup or a chicken. Don't be too proud of your virtue. A wind-broken old horse doesn't run away because it's easier to stand still. Darn styles I When B youngster wears n shirt with a low V neck, you don't know whether to call him "Miss" or "sissy." It Is brniainto makjfTufi of Idiots. They really think they can clear a traffic Jam by tooting their horns. Note to Al: No horse ever won a race while switching files. If amateurism is to be preserved unde- flled. rich dads must arrange to have more vigorous sons. Allis! If you're too decent to read about a nasty crime and form nn opinion, you are certain to be drawn on the Jury. Americanism: Resenting the fact that the menu is printed in French: keeping still about it lest people think you a low-brow. Writing a play is hard work. Think how many you must Attend in order to steal your stuff. Note to scenario writers: When the Tsero tarns his back and (cam forever, the deserted female must bold out her arms. It's « law or At forty you begin to realize that a vote for righteousness doesn't change anything except the name of the office holder. A campaign without mud la one in which the candidates are too dignified to notice the nasty things done by their supporters. This makes five times in fifty-two years, as all good Democrats know, when the Maine election hasn't meant a darned tiling. Correct this sentence: "I'm as careful of the furniture in a hotel room," said he, "as I am at home." THE ASK-EUTH-CAMEEON DAY (Ruth Cameron) Question: X want to tell you about a friend of mine, Miss Cameron, she has three children and sha Is very much f coder of one than' • the others and shows it in lota of ways. She is always giving little parties for this girl and doing ail sorts of things, end she spe&ks to her in such a different tone. I say that a mother should feel the same toward all her children. - Dont you think this downright wrong to be fonder of one child than of ^he others? Bsst mrtMity In Different Answer: Shall I shock you very much tf I say I don't? And yet I think your friend is very wrong. Not because she is fonder of the child, but because she shows it. I think mothers, the right sort, love ail their children alike with a ba&ic love that is not affected by uoarH, but are sometime* loader of one Uiao another, if the out Is more eamp&aion- atite and more lovable. That is, they enjoy some Oi«j child's society more, because he or «be is more congenial. But to let this £oad- nesa lead to partiality is downright unforgivable. Not only because it deprives the child of something in the present, but because t&e sense of injustice aad the reseatjaent, thua aroused may affect his character y$f!gM>SB$~ Jy, Jimkuia lii.u morfaia or prkikjy or resentful or givius him tiiat modem bugaboo, «n Inferiority cornple*. 0» ib* Kitten Head KUm«M$pi8 f*sst Unknown*? .

There are Komo pure and spotless folk, impelled by motives most sublime, who sec in blue tobacco smoke the evidence of sin and crime: they ROC Jim puff his pipe nnd stoke, and then his frame ihry dpfyy climb. A moral leper he appears to r,tern reformers of this stripe, nnd they bombard his patent ears with language scoriae and ripe; they view with deadly doubts and fears the influence of his old pipe. Poor Jim is roasted up and down, und to and fro. and back again; 'most every day he's roasted brown, »nd urged from briars to obstain; yet he's the only man in town who has no habits bad and vain.
