VOLUME VIII TAFT BY BIG MAJORITY Ohio Man Will Occupy Presidential Chair After Will Have Nearly as Large a Vote as Roosevelt Latest returns indicate that. William H. Taft, of Ohio, as president, will have a vote of 309 in the electoaL college. This is within 16 votes of the forecast made by Chairman Frank Hitchcock, and 67 more than a majority of the total electoial vote of 483. If Missouri votes for Taft his total may reach 327. News of the late returns indicate that Mary land, after vacillating during the day and apparently being safe for the Dem ocrats, has swung into the Taft column. The unofficial figures give Mr. Taft the state by 136 votes. Indiana and West Virginia, as well as Montana, turned out to be safely Republican. If Missouri, which late developments places in the doubtful column, goes for Bryan, he will have a total of 174 votes, two lees than he received in 1906. In 1904 Mr. Parker received only 140 votes, in 1900 Bryan leceived 155 votes and in 1£96 the Nebraskan r...

Ransoming Fancy. By CARL WILLIAMS. Copyrighted. 190 S. by Associated Literary Press. "Love me, love my dog," was a sen timent of which Miss Thayer entirely approved, though she had no reason to Insist that Paul Nisbit follow the rule, for he loved Ida Thayer, dogs in gen eral, his own brindle bull in particular and Miss Thayer's Boston terrier but little less. Fancy, the terrier, had been his first gift to Ida, and Paul believed that it constituted the strongest tie between them, for in dogs they had found a common bond of sympathy. This Nisbit had industriously sought to strengthen, with no small results, though he had not yet dared to put his fate to the test and possibly lose through precipitancy all he had gained. That Ida Thayer liked the friendly, clean cut young man was evident, but A GOGGLED figure caught up the DOOMED PET. friendliness is not love, so Paul waited for the opportunity that should show him more clearly where he stood. And a dog it was that again tight ened the...

♦ The ♦ Scrap Book Half Pries. A well known actor was taking din ner at a fashionable Chicago hotel wben a young man came in and sat down at the same table. He apparent ly recognized the actor, for after gaz ing at him intently for a couple of a minutes he pulled a two dollar bill V ostentatiously from a large roll and, shoving it across the table, remarked: "I always feel as if I had to pay to «ee a famous man, don't you know." The "famous man" calmly tore the two dollar bill in half and returned one section to the young man. "Children half price," he observed composedly. LISTEN! Whoever you are, as you read this, Whatever your trouble or grief, I want you to know and to heed this— The hour draweth near with relief. No sorrow, no woe, is unending.

CRUSHED BY A LOG Scaler of Panhandle Lumber Go. Killed by Falling Log. Died Within a Few Minutes. James Wall, aged 50, a scaler in the employ of the Panhandle Lumber Co., was almost instantly killed while scal ing logs, which were being loaded onto an Idaho & Washington Northern train at DeLong spur, about two miles west of Newport, on Saturday. The accident occurred just as the last car of the train was being loaded, shortly before noon. Wall was standing on the ground near the loader, when the hook slipped from a heavy log, and it. fell on him, hitting him in the head and fracturing his skull. He lived only five minutes after the accident occurred. In working on the ground near the car Wall, it is said, violated the rules of the company, which provide that the scaling shall be done after the logs are loaded on the cars. Dr. Phillips, Justice Long, acting cor oner. and Agent Gibbs went to the scene of the accident and viewed the body, after which it was prepared for shipment to...

A guileless rustic who wished to be employed on an English railway emerged from the examination room and informed his expectant father that he had failed because he was color blind. "But you can't have!" said his fa ther. "You're no more color blind than I am." "I know that, feyther," he replied, "but it's all through bein' polite." "What do you mean? Explain your self."

; Love In a Dictionary [Original.] Not long after my being graduated as a civil engineer I was placed in charge of a section of a railroad running through a large tract composing the tiacienda of Don Jose Miranda. On the evening of my arrival on the ground I received an invitation from him to make his house my headquarters. Had I been older I might have declined to place myself under obligation, but in youth one is not so likely to refuse favors. Nor is one at that age overscrupulous in love. Don Jose had a pretty daugh ter, Dona Ysabel, who was heir to a considerable portion of his estate. I, who had nothing but my profession nnd not much income even in that, should not have listened a moment to the temptation to make love to this heiress. When a youngster wishes to do the right thing in such a case he is apt to beat the devil about the stump by showing his heart to the girl in some covert way. I beat the devil around the stump not only as a salve to my conscience, but because I wa...

What He Did With Himself. By ELLIOT WALKER. Copyrighted, 19W, by Associated Literary Press. Forrest surveyed tbe luxurious fur nishings of bis apartment with a scowl and a weary sigh. -What shall I do with myself to day?" he said aloud. "Money to burn, and I'm sick of all it seems to bring a fellow. Oh, it was great in the begin ning to be taken up, petted, showered with invitations, made much of by the society crowd! There's Carl Forrest. His uncle left him a big pile. Ring him in. I declare, I'd like to play poor for awhile —old clothes and a stick, a wanderer among simple folk, just to find some one who would caro for me for myself alone. Why not?"' He laughed thoughtfully, repenting "Why not?" as his steps took him near a closet.

His fingers dwelt affectionately on a wrinkled suit, on a...

Wiil Build This Winter One of the officials of the Idaho & Washington Northern Railroad stated on Saturday that the work of constructing the extension of that road, from Newport down the Pend Oreille river valley to the Metaline country, would be started some time this month, and that the road would be in operation by next summer. Everything connected with the financing of the road has been completed and the money is read v. The result of the general election was satisfactory to the management, so the work will be pushed this winter, instead of waiting until next season. This will make things lively in [Newport this winter, as this place will undoubtedly be the base for supplying most of the material, and most of the money paid to laborers will probably be spent with Newport mer chants. President Blackwell, of the I. & \Y. N., has placed orders with .Spokane employment agencies for large numbers of men to be employed on the extension of that road from Newport to Met aline, a...

MAKING THE DAIRY PAY. It Is generally conceded, says N. A. Clapp. the prominent Michigan dairy man, that the average cow will eat about $40 worth of feed each year. If the herd has not produced 200 pounds of butter per cow that will sell for an average of 20 cents per pound they nave certainly not all paid expenses. Most of us know which are the good cows and which are the poor ones. If we are not certain about the quality of the milk as regards butter fat pro duced by each cow it is an easy matter to test them and know. The weeding out process may seem like a severe ordeal, but it must be done before the farm dairy Is made a paying proposi tion. It does not pay to keep a poor cow to eat and make manure to keep up the fertility of the soil when a good producing cow will do that part just as well and at the same time will pay for her keep and the labor bestowed in caring for her and return a profit bo sides. Gate For Dairy Stables. A dairyman says he has seen many kinds of gates used...

The rendition of the play was creditable to the members Oi the club and appreciated by the audi ence, which was rather small consider ing the fact that the entertainment was foi raising sufficient funds to pay off the balance of the debt on the piano the club purchased for the school.
