he estimates the total wealth of our popu

Governor Geer is trying in a spectacu

is endeavoring to get public sentiment
in favor of an extra session to place all

Governor-elect Chambarlain states his
position as follows :
"I am in favor of Rut salaries for state
officers, and have advocated them dur
irg the campaign. I am also in favor of
the special session tor the purpose ot en
acting the salary law before the new of
ficers begin their administrations. A
special session would be necessary in
order to make the law effective, for the
salaries cannot be chunked after a man
has begun his term of office. Yes, I am
in favor of putting the state printer on a
flat salary also and let him get the pub
lic printing done as I get mine done at
the usual union prices."
Politicians seem to want the state

greeted by everyone as If she were a
great blessing. But there Is another
new woman whom everybody la glad to

exclaiming, " I have been made a new
woman by Dr. Hartman's home treat

name, address, symptoms, duration of'
sickness and treatment already received
to Dr. Hartman, Columbus, O., and direc

promptly forwarded. The medicines
can be obtained at the nearest drug

Thk wage earners of the United States
number about fifteen million men, wo
men and boys and girls of ten year; of
age and over. Their average earnings
are$400 a year, and on the average each
wage-earner supports two dependents.
That is to say, three persons must live
on $33.33 a month. About a quarter of
the workingman's wages goes for rent
and about half for food and fuel. That
leaves him about $8.30 a month for
clothing, medicine, recreation and a
savings bank account. Prof. Robert E,
Ely, secretary of the League for Politi'
cal Education, in considering these fig
ures taken from the federal census, just
ly says that "the terms of our economic
problem cannot be solved by thrift
alone" that the poor in the mass can
not lift themselves out of poverty by
saving, Bince on the average they dou't

Gala Ddj of Warner Grane.
Warner Grange will spare no efforts to
make the celebration of Children's Day
and Floial Day on Saturday, June 28th,
a fiesta. A special subject for discus
sion will be the "varieties of flowers
that give greatest returns for labor ex
pended, and varieties ibat give longest
blossoming period." The occasion will
be a basket picnic. As the flocks of
children who will atten l will bring "va
rieties" of appetite with them that will
"give greatest returns for labor expend
ed," it seems hardly necessary to im
press on the old folks the imperative,
categorical necessity of bringing hamp
ers filled to bursting with "vittals."
The celebration will be held in the
spiritualist camp meeting grounds. It
will not rain on June 28th. The com
mittee of arrangements is, Mesdainee
