Eepublicans Getting Heady to Boll Up a Big Majority in JfOTember Leavenworth County Bepnbli-cans to Consider Plan. There is a movement on among the Republicans of the state to form active working party organizations in County Kansas Day Clubs. They wrould be branches of the main central club but would afford every Republican in the state a chance to become a member, whether they cared to go to the big annual meeting in Topeka or not. Since the party conventions have nearly all been abolished some kind of a central club organization of this kind is needed in Leavenworth and all the other counties In Kansas.' The Leavenworth county Republican Committee meets Saturday when it may be discussed inform ally and later at the time of the county convention a Kansas Day club can be organized. A club of this kind tould have an annual ban cuet with prominent speakers and it- wnnlH affrtvA n. snlnrilrl nnnnrtim. ity to gee Republicans together. As It is, the members of the party hard 2y know each other any more and they are loosing interesting in the organization. The big Kansas Day meeting held in Topeka in January did the party much good and coun "ty meetings would have a like ef fect. STIRRED UP ENTHUSIASM. Otis I.

It was a tremendous outpouring of Republican enthusiasm that represented every county in the state." Mr. Benton further declared that the Kansas Day club organization was a nucleus for the building of Republican party organization in tha counties ana in every community, and that annually on January 29, the Republican men and women of every county in the state who find it inconvenient to attend the state-wide rally should meet at home and enjoy ' a ' banquet and program similar to the Topeka meeting: : These gatherings would tend to cement Republican Ventiment, inspire a broad- To help you get up on time these Wintry mornings $1.00 Alarm Clocks . .

Itched and Burned. Caused Disfigurement. HEALED BY CUTICURA SOAP AND OINTMENT ""When my baby was about one year old, email pimples appeared on her hands and feet. They grew larger and spread rapidly to her limbs until it seemed that her whole body would be covered. The pimples were hard and red. and seemed to have clear watery heads which oozed out water that hardened, and formed scales. They itched and burned and were Tery much aggravated by her clothing. 'Wherever the eruptions appeared, it caused great disfigurement. "We began using Cuticura Soap and Ointment. In a week she was entirelj healed." (Signed) Mrs. W. G.

PRINCIPLES OP THE CLUB. "The platform of principles of the Kansas Day club," Mr. Benson said, "contains twenty-eight words: 'An organization to promote Republican ism, and to call together in a social way, upon the anniversaries of Kan sas' admission into the Union. 4he young Republicans of the state.' "The last six words are in 'keeping with the principles of our party, for Republicanism stands for youthful spirit, activity and the progressive ideas that have immeasurably blessed our state and nation. "In the great campaign before us I hope that every gray-haired vet eran of the Republican party in Kansas will forget the count of years and consider himself a young Republican and actively aid in the election of a Republican president, a Republican governor and state ticket and eight Republican con gressmen from Kansas who will help in the enactment of laws that will insure a square deal in life to every citizen. That is what the Kan sas" Day club stands for, and I be lieve the inspiration and enthusiasm that will radiate from the recent great meeting will bring these re- suits, as well as to elect a Republican legislature and fill the court houses I of Kansas with Republican officials. "The Republican newspapers of the Sixth district are first in the state to set a standard for the party I in November," Mr. Benton said. "They promise 10,00 mjority all along the line, and they are going to do their part in making that prom Ise good. We are united up in the Sixth District and are going to do our best to deliver the Republican good3. If the other seven districts do as well as wo confidently be- lieve the Sixth will do, Kansas wiU roll up 30,000 Republican majority. the greatest since 1888 when General Ben Harrison received 2000 plurality Certainly this is a consummation desired not only by all good citizens, but "especially by every Republican man and "woman in our state." FOB MEMBERSHIP CAMPAIGN. Effort to Be Made to Build T. M. C. A. "Every man and boy in Leavenworth a member of the Y. M. C. A."- this Is ono of the golden dreams of O. TV. Foberg, general secretary of the association, but while he does not feel sanguine of accomplishing this very soon, he is planning a campaign which is ex' pected to increase the present mem- bership considerably. Beginning nxt Monday C. G: Gloeckler of Ml Pleasant, Iowa, will conduct a membership campaign in Leavenworth for the Young Men's Christian Association, which it is hoped, will add many men and boys to the roll of the organization. Mr. Gloeckler has had much experience in this kind of work and 2?is services here are welcomed b" Y. M. C. A. men of the city. It is likely that several teams, each contesting of six or eight of the present members, will be organized to carry out the work of campaigning. The team3 will work in competition with each other for the greatest number of new members which can be secured. Some reward, such as a r upper served by th losers, will be arranged for the team obtaining the greatest number of new members. The campaign will probably last for several weeks.

Members of the Leavenworth Rifle Club have set one hundred &a the mark to be attained In membership before the season opens for work on the outdoor range. There are now fifty members in good standing and about twenty who have failed to keep up with their club dues. A vigorous campaign Is now being conducted and interest in the indoor gallery work is at high pitch. During the next two weeks, a team of five men with one alternate will be selected to go to Kansas City to compete in a match with the National Rifle Association club in that city. The second match will be shot in Leavenworth and others will follow. Members of the club are urged to attend the practice shoots to qualify for the teams which will meet the Kansas City "cracks." "It is hoped," said one of the club members yesterday, "that a cltv which has had so much to do with the history of the West, as Leaven-wort will be able to put a first class team into the rifle shooting field. Then, too, the military influences about Leavenorth are such that the city ought to have a first class club and team to represent it in competition." MAY CHANGE NAME. The club has petitioned the general secretary of the National Rifle Association at "Washington D. C, to change the name of the club from The General Leavenworth Rifla Club, to be The Leavenworth Rifle BEGIN OUTDOOR club.
