It Is mentioned by Mr. Hides that In the recent Judicial primary Republicans cast twice a* many vote« a* Democrats In all but one county of the district--and this In face of the fact that at this time Democrat* are perhaps as numerous an Republicans In the district. A continuation of this showing will be anything but good for the Democratic party. If Republicans beat us in getting to the polls they will after a short wr.Hi be In position to beat us all along the line. If they persist In the voting habit, and if we refuse to take It on, it will be but a short while when Republican* will have a distinct upper hand in this part of the country. And if they take enough interest to go to the polls and vote, while we Democrats stay at home, they will be entitled to supremacy.* In the special Judicial election there is an opportunity for Democrats to show there Is good party metal in them. It they will turn out and vote at this election it will be notice to all that they propose to "take on the habit " After they make a demonstration or two of this kind thev will be delighted to note the effect generally. Certainly the "habit" Is one that Republicans should not be allowed to monopolize It will be a good deal better for the country when we can depend on Democrats to go to the polls as a matter of course, somewhat as Republicans do. nlghti to hold a front seat to hear th» man.

HISTORY OF CIVIL WAR DAY BY DAY home He must, have been advised at that time that practically all members of his party In congress voted for the t a r i f f measure we now have. Some Progressives voted for it because the bill was much to their sincere likine; others did it because, as they said, it ·as by far the best tarif£ measure offered the country In more than a generation. For one reason and another, he t a r i f f measure had almost general support {rom Progressives who had got far enough along to be In congress. Then w h y should Mr. Roosevelt be o eager to condemn utterly a measure that had such support from his party n congress. It seems that he ought to go slow in expressing such condemnation, even If he feels it: a de- :ent respect for the feelings of Progressive members of congress would demand this. But Mr. Roosevelt flails the measure with as much enthusiasm and wild abandon as though it had been opposed to a man by every Progressive In congress,. Who determines the position of the Progressive party In matters of this kind ? Is it done by votes of Progressives who go to congress, or Is It dwae later by the speech of a candidate who failed In election? If the matter Is to be determined entirely by one man, he should at least stay on the ground and advise the party's members In congress how they are to vote. He should not preach one doctrine and then permit them to practice another. ·RET THE 10TI0 HABIT." A t t o r n e y . l i m s L.

The Confederate forces, under General Early, raiding Maryland, were met in force by Union defenders under Genal Wallace at Monocacy Junction, but n the fierce engagement which followed, the Federal troops were defeated ,nd driven bank to Monrovia, the louthern cavalry proving irresistible n its charges.

According to figures compiled by Dr. J. Jf. Randall, the population of this city at the present time IB at least S7.500 Its death date is l.S.

WILL SING AT BAND CONCERT THURSDAY QUESTION COLUMN from burning, also which fruits best and why all fruits do not JEJU-Y MAKING. . ( l Dear Miss Leonard--Will you please tell me how to prevent marmalade Jell set equally well. Tour page Is the first I read in the paper every day. MRS. MARGARET O. P. ' To prevent the rrarmalade from setting scorched, stir it freoiuently. I believe that If two or three marbles are j.ut in the bottom of the kettle, these will prevent the Jam from burning, as the heat agitates them and keeps them slightly In motion. I have never used the marbles, but their use Is recommended by standard cook books. Currants, I believe, stand highest m jelly making properties Apples are a'so excellent, and apples make a good tiller to be combined with other fruits of more pronounced flavor The difference In the Jellying properties of fruits jls due to the difference In the amount 'oC pectin they contain Fruits differ [also In their pectin content from yeai to year, so that one has to use judgment In making jelly, TOMATO RAREBIT. Dear Mls» Leonard--Would appreciate it very much if you would print recipe for tomato rarebit. MRS ANNA E. S, Take a. can of tomatoes or a quart of fresh stewed tomatoes a small piece currants of onion, a third of- a teaspoonful of mustard, half a teaspoonful of salt, now I am going; to a*k a c«uple ol questions and hope to see the answers printed soon, (1) Caji you give mo the directions tor making Tutti-frutti jam? I* It to 30 put in a large stone jar and covered with wax or sealed tight? (2) What can I do to rid my ice box of small red ants? By answering these questions sou will greatly oblige A CONSTANT READER Tutti-frutti Is generally made from uncooked fruits. For every pound of fruit, allow one pound of susar and on 3 pint of pure alcohol, brandv, rum whisky. Begin by putting alcohol in the bottom of a large stone crock. To this add say a pound ot strawberries, and a pound of sugar. Then add , successively a pound of different fruita they come After you have added about six pounds, add another pint of alcohol By the time the pieserve is ready for use In the winter, this will all have evaporated so that there need be no objection in families where tha use of alcohol is not approved. Th« thickness of the preserve will v a r v with the thickness of the chosen fruits. If it seems too juicy, pour off a, little of. the jnlce and keep It for fruit punched or flavorings. Pineapple should b« scalded in syrup before being pjUt Into i t h e jar or it may ferment Grapes and OTHERS GROW APPLES. The government's Julv crop report is now public. It makes such a showing for wheat, oats and corn as we expected -- the cereal crop Is to be a record one. This report has something on apples, a f r u i t In which a great many are Interested. The apple prospect is bettor now than it w»» a year ago, better than the average for ten years. This is encouraging news. We had been led to believe that this jear the country would do little more than nothing In apples. Reports kept coming 1 from different sections In Illlnol* telling of very short crops or no crop. Of course we are, again advised by the "government report on apples thai when it comes to thi* besfof all fruits Illinois does not cut a big figure. It Is too bad that we don't make a better showing In this respect -- but al least we are thankful that orchardist in other states come to the rescue. pays to have Industrious neighbors.

Duffy of Campus Wanteil to Cool Hlmielt Oft. Like the man who experimented with the mule's left hind hoof, J. D u f f y of Campus, 111, who stuck his leg out of the vestibule door on Wabash passenger train No. 14 to catch the air that was flowing Monday afternoon, Is dead. D u f f y was about fifty years of age and suffered from the heat. When all of the t r a i n crew were absent, he went into the train vestibule, seated himself on one step and stuck his left leg out into the wind. A bridge between New Lennox and Marley happened along and took his leg away from him. He w a s taken to a Chicago hospital and died there Tuesday evening. Conductor Charley Conklln and Brakeman James Pruitt of Decatur were in charge of the train, and Mr. Conklln says that this Is the first fatal accident that has occurred on his train In thirty-four years.

I SOUR CREAM ICING I Dear Miss Leonard--Thank, you very 'much for the recipe for your chocolate ilce cream recently given. Am coming to 'you again for advice. Can you tell me some time how to make frosting with sour milk? You referred to it once, I thrnk. Would be glad to have the ie- cipe MRS W. O. R. Here is one given me some time ago which I have not yet tested: The whites of two eggs, one cup of sugar, one cup of sour cream, one-quarter of a pound of shelled almonds, one teaspoonful of gelatine Cover the sugar ·n;th water and boil It until It 'ropes." Then pour it slowly over the well beaten whites of the two eggs, beating constantly. Stir in the sour cream, which should be j u s t clabbered, not old. Add a heaping teaspoonful of gelatine, dissolved In hot waer and set away to thicken. When cool, mix in the almonds, blanched and run through the chopper This makes a most delicate filling for angel food TUTTI-FRUTTI JAM. Miss Ijaura Leonard--Tour column In the papar is the first thing I read in the evening when the paper comes, so also ar« safer If treated in this way. If the Jar should ferment, scald everything and then turn back CHARGE DRINKING OUT OF BOTTLE Three Men Arrested In Aller Back ot Barn- Frank Edwards, James Shechan and Clielsle Cavanaugh, all claiming to be farmers, were arrested by Officer Johnson Wednesday evening.
