8 Subduing Mother's Voice. The Miocessful merchant Invited his parents to visit him In New York city.

In their ren dition the visiting pAtr contributed heavily, with the credit for volume In favor of the father. Although not al ways In correct time and sometimes in discord, yet the joy of this good couple leaped forth In-Joyous prnlso, and they did not son the glowering looks of nearby worehlpern or the bcctllke face of their devoted son. "Father," explained . the merchant that afternoon .while his mother was taking her* nccustomfd nap, "In our churches the congregations do very lit tle singing. It is left entirely to the choir."

4 FROM OUR CORRESPONDENTS AUKUM. dan. <;.- A little more than a month has elapsed since I wrote of the death of Mrs Isaac McClary, little dream* ing that her husband was to soon to follow her. Isaac MoClary died at his residence in Oleta on Friday night last, Just n month from tbe time of his wife's death. With the imsshiK of this old pio neer, passes away a man linked by consanguinity to some ot the great men of this nation. Mr McClary was modest nnd unassuming, never venturing a voluntary reoital ot tbo history of bis lineage, and which be could trace into the jungles ot the early settling of America. His grand parents were born in New Hampshire, and took a leading part iirtlio wars of the Involution. -Through , his grand-parents he is related .to John Adams, second president of tbe United States, and to John Qulnoy Adams, sixth president, lie is also related to General IStarka of revolu tionary fame. He himself was born in Nllestown, Middlesex county, Ontario, Canada, his fath...

LOCAL EDITORIAL NEWS. PROHIBITION WAVE. There can be no question that the prohibition sentiment, as regards the manufacture and sale of iutoxicating liquors, has made great headway within the past few years in the United States. Whether prohibition will prohibit is a de bateable point. Nodoubt, in localities which have been under the law for many years, large quantities of intoxicants may be disposed of in defiance of the law, and men under the influence of liquor may be seen. That, however, might be expected. No law has ever been passed, that cannot and will not be violated. So, that liquor is made and sold in localities under the prohibition banner, is no more an argu ment against the cause, than the fact that robbery and other crimes are committed in defiance of legal enactments. The point is, do prohibition laws tend to restrict the manufacture and sale of liquors. And few will dispute the proposition. It may be true that the vice of indulgence to excess in strong drinks, pent u...

To the Native tions and Daughters, who claim this state na tholi birth place, tbe translation of wilderness into the birth of human progress, dotted all over with great cities, towns, hamlets and farm dwellings cannot in its fullest extent be now realized. In 1818 the discovery of gold at Butters mill attracted men and women from every point of tbe com pass. They varied in their natures as much as in their nationalities. Tbe "wild and wooly west," was at that time in its tragio development. The Mexican with his Joaquin Muretta and Tbree Fingered Jack, were not the only ones whose hands were immersed in human blood, for there were many crimes committed and laid at their door in order to hide the bidden ...

LOCAL EDITORIAL NEWS. PRESIDENTIAL STRAW. PT« 1 11 ■ r i 11—... »« „ From the poll of votes made by the Chicago Tribune, cm oracing between four and five thousand prominent republicans scattered throughout the United States, Taft is out-distancing all competitors in the race for the nomination for president on the republican ticket. He is booked to win hands down. From this straw it is claimed that he is the first choice of 60 per cent of the voters, and the first choice of every state save the favorite-son states, and the second choice of every favorite son state. Five thousand votes is an infinitessimally small percentage of the total party vote upon which to base an in telligent opinion as to the outcome. It is clear, however, that he is far in the lead, and that this fact will tend todraw to his standard the army of politicians whose controling desire is to get on the popular side. The tabulated vote of this straw shows that out of 4318 votes, Taft for first choice- received 251...
