Munduy Kvming, June 39, 19». TIME TO MARK ROADS. It is mentioned In the news columns that, a guideboard has been adopted in three town-ships in this county and that perhaps, it is soon to be taken on by another. It is In use in some townships in other counties o£ the state; altogether the showing for tho board is a good one When one remembers that It has been on the market but ft short while. One is reminded that up to this time guideboard work for roads has gone rather slowly in this state. Those reader* of papers who remain in cities or do not get off the iron highway perhaps hare the impression that Illinois roads must be qiiite well marked by this time. They have bad stories about this trail and that one being: marked across the state, about automobile associations generally turning In and having roads marked in their home neighborhoods. Perhaps there Is an impression that one era go out on the highways of Illinois and hare to strike a side lane before ha getB away from markings. "Well, those who have been on the roads; know the real story is something entirely different. Tha man in a car may go all day long on roads that arc traveled by many people and not find a single marking. Say that you wish to drive from here to Taylorville anil then on to Litchfield or Hillsboro; you perhaps will make the entire trio and not nee a n y t h i n g that looks like a gutdeboard. If you don't know the road you f i n d your way by i n q u i r y , and sometimes this isn't as easy as one might imagine. We arc upon a time when It w i l l h M p w o n d e r f u l l y to have roads marked. Scooting "P anrl down the state all the while are thousands or people who are o u t s i d e tin- home district where they know roads. Ten years ago there was little demand that roads lie marked, for then they were used almost e n t i r e l v by people who liver] in the n e i K h b n r hood and who knew them. In that da\ a man seldom KOt twentv mile* a w n from home on the roans. Wo know how all t h i s has been changed. It should not require anv discussion to convince one that nowadays there is really a big nee'l t h a t roads he marked. Possibly Ihe tlm" has come when it is advisable to have an amendment to the road law that will provide for marking, the work to be looked after by state and c o u n i y authorities. 1 WHY DOST THBYT In a market letter of K. I Bald-win Co.. jHibllshed Sunday, there Is a query that perhaps has occurred to more than a few. people heretofore. The letter not tbls: "We ar» eelllng Europe our ·wheat at whatever prie« they Bee fit ta offer \a. Why don't the farmers stock their wheat and sell It aa the market will take care of It at srood prlcpft, the same as th\ 1 do their corn?" Why don't farmers do this? ,luK and September wheat are celling on the Cnicajffo board of trade at around 78 cents a bushel; corn in the sHme market In About RS cents. Tt IB sure that if 88 centa IB a reasonable price for corn th« farmer can't afford to e;rrw wheat at 7Jt cents. Corn, on the wbole. bos hp»n a very r alr prlo» for « long w h i l e This is owing In pa.rt to the fact t h u t m a n y more ns«s hove been found for corn. It is also owlnw In lorBO part to the fact that most of the corn-Krowinr: farmer* of the r o u n t r y will not sell the product ilnleq they ran yet what t h e y regard a f a i r price. A f o r m e r 1^ offered 40 cents for corn. Has'; he dof-n t ««ll. He puts It away In crib and wnit;. NOT GUILTY. An item Sunday told of a, movement among members of the Macon County bar to have W. Clark McMillen appointed to the bench vacancy caused by the death, of Judge W. C. Johns. At the end of the item there was this: "It may be added that the movement in his favor was not started by himself." Indeed. Mr. McMIllin didn't start It; » ;ie migrht go further and say that he : r n i n p t l y discouraged the move Just as .··inn as it was mentioned to him. A i I T member called on him Saturday nuii-aing- and remarked: "They are talk- ins of you. of Mr. Whttfleld and of Mr. Drew for appointment as judge.'* "Well, I am for one of the other Jel- lowe, so that reduces the number of candidates to two," answered Mr. McMillen. And the man who heard him went away with the impression that Mr. McMillen wasn't permiting himself to get within range of the guns. FROM SPRINGFIELD, TOO! What Is wrong with the Watch Factory band of Springfield? Saturday { last It was professionally present at the doings In tho city of Kincaid in Christ i a n county. The story goes that they were about to introduce Roger C. Sullivan, of Chicago, candidate for United States senator. As a preliminary the band, leader was asked to play "See the Conquering Hero Comes." The story "The band played it raggedly, having no music. 1 ' Is it possible that a band can come out of Springfield and not be up and finished on that piece? There is a town that is supposed to have "conquering heroes" to spare. The man who does any conquering in Illinois politics proceeds at once to Springfield. And still the Watch Factory band can't play the piece without its music! it doesn't seem poslsble. Move the capital to Deeatur. WILL 1IT TILL ra Of Judge Johns Before Acting on Successor. VOTE BY LOCAL BAR United Support Probably for One Man. In the Judicial primary ot last Saturday, an important political matter that was well advertised, ooly a little more than 10 per cent of the voters of this county went to the polls. At least it can't bo said that we are very much worked up over our judges; we must be. q u i t e well satisfied with the work they have been doing. .Tack Johnson has won aga4n. but the indications are that not a great many more rounds are left In him. He goes hard, nnd it's a game at which they !«n't last long. Saturday afternoon we had the low-.1 barometer in months, but all slgn- "retinue to fail in dry weather. Suggesting that the selection of a candidate to fill the vacancy on the circuit bench caused by the death of Judge W. C. Johns be left to the members of the Macon County bar. Attorney I. A. Buckingham, who »a a candidate for that honor, Sunday addressed letters to W. K. W h l t f i e l d and Claik A. McMillen, two o t h e r Deeatur lawyers who have been mentioned as probable candidates. WAIT UNTIL LATER. A good many of the lawyeis are of the opinion that Governor D u n n e would appoint a Macon county man to the. position if the bar of t h i s county united in a petition for one m a n , and they also expect a Democrat to receive the appointment. Tliere is a feeling some that there should be no p a r t i c u l a r rubh about securing: the appointment, and that it would do no harm to w a i t u n t i l a f t e r tho f u n e r a l of Judge J o h n s before starting' a movement to name his successor. This will p r o b a b l y be done. Hark A. 'McMillen would only be a c a n d i d a t e in rase he received the united support of the local bar association. He is ahead of Mr. B u c k i n g h a m in that plan, for when he was first urged as a candidate he made that statement, and Sunday a f t e r receiving Mr. Buckingham's letter he said: "I do not care to enter into a p u h l i r discussion as to the successor of Judge J o h n s at this time. I have said to several lawyers who have urged me to become a c a n d i d a t e t h a t I w o u l d allow my name to be presented to Governor D u n n e only if I had the support of and was the choice of the bar of this c o u n - ty." TILL AFTER FUNERAL. ''After Judge Johns is laid away," said W. K. W h l t f i e l d , Monday morning, I may have something to say with regard to being a candidate. I w a n t to be decent about it. and will be if l e f t alone. It .seems to rne that out of respect for Jmige Johns common decency would require that the matter of circu- l a t i n g p e t i t i o n s o r t a k i n g steps t o f i l l the vacancy on the bench occasioned by his death should be postponed till a f t e r t h e f u n e r a l . "I have not announced myself as a c a n d i d a t e for the appointment by Oov- ertior Dunne. I appreciate the suggestions which mv f r i e n d s have made with r e f e r e n c e to me in thi* connection. I regard it an honor to be mentioned In the manner in whi-'h my friends h a v e seen fit to mention me, tut I am not prepared at this t i m e to m a k e a dcfi- i nlte a n n o u n c e m e n t as to the position J I shall l a k e w i t h r e f e r e n c e to becoming a c a n d i d a t e for the position or as to the a t t i t u d e I would take w i t h reference to Mr. Buckingham's suggestion in the event that I do decide to become a candidate for a p p o i n t m e n t by Governor Dunne." MH. W E B E E l : APPROVES. A. G. Webber tald: "When Mr. Vail, ot LeForpcee. Vail i n d Miller, presented the petition on l i o h a l f of Mr. M c M i l l e n , l a s t week, for and" co-operation in securing thia appointment. I think this method would be fair to all concerned, and would not only eliminate any factional controversy in our party, but would also secure the hearty co-operation of the bar of this county in support ot the candidate selected; and the candidate solidly supported by the bar of this county would have a great advantage over possible candidates of other counties in the district, in securing this appointment.

Springfield, June 29.--The efficiency and economy committee appointed by the Forty-eighth general assembly will hold public m i e t i n g s at the state cap- ilol In Springfield on Monday and Tuesday, J u l y 6 and 7, for the discussion of some of the plans under consideration by the committee for the reorganization and consolidation of the executive departments of the state government. At the session on Monday m o r n i n g there will be considered a plan for consolidating the m a n a g e m e n t of penitentiaries a n d Mondav afternoon reformatory. the proposed On plan for reorganizing the education authorities of the state will be discussed. On Tuesday a plan for the reorganization of HIP staU authorities relating to labor and m i n i n g w i l l be taken up. DISORGANIZATION. In HF preliminary report the committee finds a condition of disorganization and c o n f u s i o n in the more than a hundred separate state offices, boards and commissions, duplication of positions, overleaping of duties, lack of co-operation and harmony, and ab- si nee of e f f e c t i v e supervision, all producing inefficiency and waste. GOVERNOR BURDENED. The governor is burdened with u n necessary detail: while neither the (governor, the general assembly nor the p u b l i c have a d e q u a t e I n f o r m a t i o n or rnants for exercising control over the state services. The committee, therefore, proposps to reorganize the numerous offices into not more than twelve executive departments, under officials appointed by tiie governor, BO as to sooure harmony and efficiency. The report is based on detailed investigations made under the direction of the committee. The detailed reports will be published with the filial report ot the committee. Says He Will Be Glad to Get Back to the U. S. NO SODA FOUNTAINS In London and Women Drink in Saloons. According to a. The Review from letter received Adjutant Thomas Williamson, he was scheduled to leave London on Sunday for Belfast. Ireland, where he will visit relatives. After a short visit he will cross back to Bristol, England, and go to London. Then he will embark on the White fetar line for home. GLAD TO GET BACK. "I -nill be glad to get back to the dear old. United States," says Mr. Williamson. "London and Its custom? lire much d i f f e r e n t from those in the United States. In restaurants generally it is d i f f i c u l t to get a good, square meal and it costs as much if not more than in Illinois. NO water is served nnd it Is hard to get it when asked for.

"Mary has Just come home from college," remarked a. mother to me the other day, "and,she wants to turn the house topsy-turvy. She has been taking art courses and nothing about the house meets her approval, now that she is so enlightened. She has a great deal to say about 'good lines,' and 'color harmony,' and all such things. The wall papers In the house don't suit her and the f u r n i t u r e coverings are not right, and the carpets, she declares, are 'garish, 1 . "You remember the f u r n i t u r e in my parlor. It is old mahogany stuff that Mother Brown gave me when I was married. We had It all done over and upholstered in red plush. Mary says the red plush is hideous. She says the lines of the f u r n i t u r e are adorable, r.nd goes on at a great rate about Colonial periods and a ot of other non- I going to do sense. N T ow what with her?" I did remember the red plush covered f u r n i t u r e in question, ancV-I' could sympathize with Mary's point of view. I also remembered the parlor carpet. It is of b e a u t i f u l texture and wonderful pink roses run riot over it. There are Pale pink roses in a charming design f a i n t l y across the wall paper in that room. If the lovely old mahogany f u r n i t u r e could be upholstered in some soft color perhaps a. French gray, that would not clash with the roses in the carpet or the roses on the wall, the room m i g h t be redeemed from ugliness and be made harming In spite of the fact that flowered carpets and flowered wall paper have gone out of fashion. Mary objects also to the green walls in the d i n i n g room, which are patterned in staring spots of red. She objects to the dining room rug of v i v i d reds and greens. She declares that she .-an never again enjoy a meal in that d i n - ing room unless the color scheme is changed and Mary's mother, ^ ho cannot see why her red plush f u r n i t u r e not as handsome toddy as it \vas to meet these varying requests. II seems to me that the view taken tft one mother who is very much beloved by all the members of her family t'ers the best suggestions toward solution of thi s problem. Said this mother: "When my boy* and girls got into their teens and b«w gan going out with other young peo* pie, and so came in contact with all sorts of new ideas, I rebelled at first at the thought that I might have ta change my household ways to suit their ideas. Then I decided to sit down and t h i n k it out q u i e t l y by myself before making any decision. "I started w i t h the feeling that, firs! o£ all, I must do whatever would tern to promote harmony of interest b«. tv.-een my children and myself. I re. ':zed that I was getting Into middle age and that I had become accustomed to doing certain things in certaii wsys. I wanted my meals exactly ot\ the hour; I wanted my beds made just a certain way, and all the house- bold activities carried on with tematic routine. With my young peo- 1 pie making all soils of demands Cot \ a r i a t i o n with their young friendi coming and going, little entertain ments being given with parties comin. ne after another, and various emer t-'incy events interfering with in household arrangements, I felt that must compromise somewhere and giv up niy own idea.s where such givinj i did not embrace any sacrifice a ·oil order or necessary routine. j ' . = o when m y - daughter began enter) ta.mng her young friends r consults with her as to her taste in the rear a n s e m e n t ot furnishings, in decora tion.s etc. I allowed all my childrei choice of decorations for (heir owi ooms.
