T1ILC CHICAGO ELECTIONS
Current KvciiU and oCwr tuni-par-tisan
publications cull attention to the
fact that the ekvtion of the recent Ke
publicun mayor of Chicago is an in
diratipn of loyalty to the Administra
tion of President Wilson, because of
the fact that the friends of the Demo
cratic nominee for mayor, presumably
with his consent and co-operation un
dertook to make the European war an
isue in an American city election.
They presented their candidate as
a German and contended that the vote
for or against him would be a con
clusive test of the sentiment of Chi
cago as between th:; Allies and the
Germans. The issue was distracted j
further by the obtrusion of a religious j
question. Mr. Su eitzer is a Catholic, '
and there was an eneriretie call for the i
r and smoothing narro
Catholics of both sexes and all par
ties to rally to him. The Richmond
Journal suggests that "both the Ger
man sympathizers and the Catholics
refused to have their votes as Ameri
can citizens directed by such considerations."

under without first thoroughly ci.t
tinfT up with a disc harrow, as the
material plowed under in a layer se
riously interferes with the capillary
action of the moisture in the soil. The
effect of turning under in a layer is
what is sometimes called souring the
soil with green manuring crops. Dou
ble disc the cover crop two or three
times with a. sharp disc harrow be
fore planting; plow well by taking a
narrow furrow and edging rather than
inverting the furrow; then double
disc the land again rather deeply, and
no injurious effect will result how
ever large the growth may be.
This is the important point wo wish
to impress upon you: The thorough
incorporation of the vegetable matter
with the soil. Do not get in a hurry
and neglect this important part of
the work if you expect g.N d res"..(

DEMOCRATIC VICTORY IX' 1D16
The guidance of public affairs
through the maze of pit falls pro
duced by the Europeoji war and the
enactment of legislation in which the
President believes has liberated busi
ness from monopolistic control.
The President fully realizes, says
a Washington dispatch, that for sev
eral months the Republicans have been
able to make political capital of the
business depression, for which they
urged the people to blame the Demo
crats. But times are on the mend in
the opinion of the President and with
in a few months the Republicans, he
thinks, will be bereft of the issue.
Some Democratic leaders express
ed the opinion that the wave of
(speculation which has hit the New
York Stock Exchange heralds the ad
Tent of real prosperity. Convinced
that a business boom in at hand in
voters say these politicians are
pcrambling to get in on the ground
floor and win fortune from the im
pending rise in stocks.
That there will be a spirited con
test between the progressive and
conservative factions of the Repub
lican party is apparent. Probably
the leading Progressive candidate is
Senator Cummins of Iowa. The con
servative sentiment appears to be
uvided between ex-Senator Burton
Root, if Supreme Court Justice
Hughes could be induced to offer
himself he might receive both pro
gressive and conservative support.
Senator Weeks of Massachusetts
might be put forward as a compro
mise between conservatism and pro-gressivism.
me r.asi is reavy to accept any;
jvepuDiican candidate, according to
Republican leaders, while the West
iU not support a "reactionary."
Senator1 Norris of Nebraska said
recently that the "Republican party
must be progressive to win and is not
ntilled to win unless progressive."

PRESIDENT TO M. P.
In a speech before the Maryland
Annual Conference of the Methodist
Protestant Church, in session at
Washington, last Thursday night,
President Wilson said in part:
"In transacting the business of a
greet church you are handling the
phases of the day. You are handling
the affairs of the church as they
stand under the treatment of the men
of your generation. Back of them lie
the eternal principles which- you are
trying to exemplify in the life of the
work; back of us here in the Govern
ment lie the eternal principles of jus
tice and righteousness which, in my
conviction, at any rate, we do not de
rive from our inspiration and author
ity. "These are days of great perplexity
when a great cloud of trouble hangs
and broods over the greater part of
the world. It seems as if great, blind,
material forces had been released,
which for long had been held in leash
and restraint. And yet, underneath
that you can 6ee the strong impulses
of great men."
Secretary of State Bryan, another
distinguished guest of the conference,
who was introduced by the Rev. John
S. Bowers, president of the conference,
as the "prince of American preacher
orators," delivered a lay sermon, in
which he dealt on the nine gods that
many men are prone to worship in
The church was packed to hear the
President and his Cabinet premier.
Their addresses were frequently applauded.

The members of the Randolph Bunk
Club were delightfully entertained
by Mrs. W. D. Stedman Friday, when
the first nroirram. on Denmark was
rendered. In the absence of Mrs. W
H. Morimr, Miss Julia Thorns read
an interesting paper on "Educating
Denmark," following came a violii
solo bv Mrs. Sulon Stedman, aecntii
lanied by Miss Annie Moring on the
piano. ''The Royalty of Denmark" was
then read by Mrs. Wm. C. Hammer.
Mrs. Emmett L. Mofiitt read the Dan
ish national Hymn which is as fol
lowslows: Dania! Dania! soul-stirring name,
Hallowed to fame,
That causes our bosoms with rapture
These shall the songs of thy children
When history recordeth thy exploits
Thy glory of old.
We hail thee with transport our spirit
that Fires land of our sires!
Denmark! thy name sounds o'er many
Land of the free!
Like brethren thy sons all unite in
And loyalty swear to their sov'reign
In peace it is theirs the example to
How patriots live;
War summons to arms, and impatient
Like heroes to die.
For aye the monarch that weareth
Promote thy rer.own.
Thy 6ons in the day of the battle shall
As thy heroes of yore, to encounter
And each Dancrnan whose deals prove
him worth that name.
Untainted by shame,
Shall utter a blessing, in death's cold
On Denmark'e brave race.

The hostess served cream and cake
the latter with violet stripe. A tray
which attracted much attention was a
receptacle for a beautiful platter of
violet and white cake, seemingly with
border of violets; a bunch of violets
decorated each plate. The hostess was
assisted in serving by Mrs, Sulon
Stedman and Misses Annie Moring
and Ulnah Rush. The program for
the entire year has proven of great
interest, bearing as it does upon the
history, people, manners and customs
of the European countries that are
warring with each other.

is in good con-
out. Unless the soil is full of mois
ture, or there are prospects of an ear
ly rain it is best to run a roller over
the land to firm it, which will aid in
holding the moisture. The roller
Ehould always be followed with the
wecder or light smoothing harrow to
mulch the top soil.
When the cover crop consists of
rye or other small grain, it should be
turned under when about knee high.
If the condition of the soil prevents
plowing at this time, double disc the
crop a couple of times and this will
prevent the further drying out of the
soil, and-frequently the soil will be
mellow enough in a few days to plow
even if it does not rain. . This, of
course is true when clover is to be
followed by corn also.

Prof. Farlow introduced Prof. Jo
seph Peclc, of Guilford College, who

This exhibition together with others
which have taken place in neighbor

that the old fashioned exhibition is

the rural communities.
During our recent commencement
exercises at Trinity, the omission of
the name of Miss Jessie Myers for
