The ballot of the election to be held on Nov. eth -will represent a saving of from $1,000 to $UOO to Wlntr-slde county, according to in- formaUon riven out Tuesday at the office of the county cierk. There are at least two reasons for this one being tho fact that due to tho elimination of the names of the twenty-nine presidential electors the ballot am be made quite a little smaller. In connection with the size of the ballot It may be said that the number of parties listed hag been reduced from thirteen to six parties, and one of the these ha* only one candidate in the field The second reason is due to the "ft that the printing is to be, or *" " been let by contract or ir, following a resolution by the board of supervisors, '-four thousand ballots will be required, nnd the contract for their publication wa* awarded the Q. £. ^. ..
