The new code makes nn importaht bange In the method of marking the fflcial ballot. Unless voters give spec- al attention to it there will be a lot of allots cast out this full. If the voter vishes to vote a straight party ticket ib should mark in the circle at the iead. If he intends to scratch a single ame, he must let the big circle sovere- y alone, and mark in the square oppo- ite the name of every man he intends o vote for. This seems plain enough, >ut thoso who do not intend to vote a traight ticket will find that it requires ome attention if they get their ballots ounted as they want them to be. A few of the provisions of the new aw are of general interest: HOURS FOR POLLS TO OPEN AND CLOSE. Sec. 1096. At all elections the polls liall be open at 8 o'clock in the forenoon, except in cities where registra- ion ia required, when the polls shall je opened at 7 o'clock in the forenoon, n- in each case as soon thereafter as racanciea in the places of judges or lerks of election have been filled. In all cases the polls shall be closed at C 'clock in the evening. MARKING THE BALLOT. Sec. 1119. Upon retiring to the vot- ng booth the voter shall prepare his >allot by placing a cross in tho square pposite the name of each candidate for vhom he desires to vote, or, if he de- Ladies' Fine Shoes, sires to vote for all the candidates unon ny ticket, he may do so by placing u cross in the circle at the bend of the ticket. Tho voter may also insert in vriting, in the proper place, the name of any person for whom he desires to vote, making a cross opposite thereto. The unnecessary marking of a cross in a square below a marked circle shall not affect the validity of his vote. HOW THE BALLOTS ARE COUNTED. Sec. 1120. Ballots marked as first provided in the preceding section Shall 3e counted for the candidates designated by the murks in the squares. When a circle is marked the ballot shall be ounted for all the names upon the ticket beneath said circle. The making of a cvoss in the square of another ticket than the one marked in the circle shall not affect the validity of the ballot ex- ept as to the office for which the person opposite whose name such cross was made, is a candidate, and as to that office the vote shall not be counted. When more than one circle is marked the ballot shall be rejected. When only one candidate for any office if to be elected, if the voter marks in squares opposite the names of more than one candidate therefor such vote shnll not be counted for such office, whether the circle is marked or not. When two or more officers of the same kind are to be elected, if more squai-es opposite the names of candidates for such office are marked than there are officers to be elected to such office, the ballot shall not bo counted for any such candidates. If for any reason it is impossible to determine the voter's choice for any office to be filled, his ballot shall not be counted for such office. Any ballot marked by the voter in any other manner, than as authorized in this chapter, and so that such mark may bo used for the purpose of identifying such ballot,-shall be rejected. EMPLOYES TO HAVE TIME TO VOTE. 1223. Any person entitled to vote at a general election shnll, on the day of such election, be entitled to absentbim- self from any services in which he is employed for a period of two hours, between the time of opening and closing the polls, which period may be designated by the employer, and such , voter shall not be liable to any penalty nor shnll any deduction be made, from his usual salary or wages on Account of such absence, but application for such absence shall be made prior to the day of election. Any employer who shall refuse to an employe'the privilege conferred by this section or shall subject such employe to a penalty or reduction of wages because of the exercise of such privilege, or shall in any manner attempt to influence or control such em- ploye as to how he shall vote, by offering any reward, or threatening discharge from employment, or otherwise intimidating or attempting to intimidate such employe from (exercising his right to vote, shall be- punished ,by a fine of not less than $5 nor more than 5100.

She has had experience in library work at the Agricultural college and in the Nevada city library. The Representative says there were 7,000 applicants for 44 places which makes her appointment a high compliment. -r -t- 4- Al. Adams in a fatherly mannergives the good 'people of Humboldt some good advice, It is good also in Algona: We want to notify the loving mothers of Humboldt that during the past week or ten days the young girl representatives of six or so of the best or leading families of Humboldt were tramping the streets at night with young fellows that a week before they had never seen and if they never see them again it will be a great mercy to them. This is all we have to say at present, further than to add that no mother or father or other grown person who has the guardianship pf children, has. any right to permit a young girl in years from twelve to seventeen ou|,a| night alone or in each other's company, or company thai tfis guardian dpee not know to be re* eponsjble to him or her, The Lord * STATE LIBRARIANS MEET, E P. McElroy Keprcsents Alsoimat ifes Molnes-He Says the Meeting \V»9 Very Successful. E P. McElroy was at Des Moines last week to represent Algona at the state meeting of librarians. He had a most enjoyable time. In speaking of the meeting for UPPER DES MOINES readers, he says: The eighth annual meeting of the Iowa T tbrarv association is pronounced by com- ceteut judges to have been the most successful in its history. The opening address hv President Johnston of Fort Dodge, the well known veteran in the library movement on "The future of the free libraries in Iowa" was very hopeful and inspiring mid save the key note to the meeting. Miss L. E. Stearns, librarian of the State Free Library commisssion of Wisconsin, cave what was beyond question the most practical as well as entertaining talk upon the topic " How to Organize Free Libraries and Make Them Centers of Education and Happiness." With extensive experience and great enthusiasm in the work Miss Stearns possesses in a remarkable degree the happy faculty of imparting her knowledge aud zeal to others, and the association expressed their high appreciation of her services in the session by a special resolution. "Do not bo discouraged," " Keep at it," "Keep everlastingly at it," were the words again and again repeated with which she emphasized her counsel to those who are seeking to establish libraries and promote a taste for good literature. " The Danger Line in Literature" was the subject treated by Johnson Brighatn, editor of the Midland Monthly. This paper by its marked originality, trenchant criticism and great literary excellence, made a deep impression and won much praise for its gifted author. Hon. Henvy Sabin upon the "Relation of the School to the Library" was at his best, and therefore most instructive and interesting. Judge Deemer of the supveme court delivered an admirable address, his subject being, " How to Stimulate Interest in the Library." In addition to the various addresses, the informal talks and discussions of library topics and questions of practical bearing were of great interest, and a very valuable feature of the convention.
