TAKEIIOLU OF TIIK FltlMAItlKS.
It Is tho duty of all citizens to lake
hold of the primaries. That is tho
first recourse of thoso who desire
good government and n peoples gov
ernment. Good work at the prima,
rles la half tho hattlo won. It is not
nil, because if good men aro nomi
nated their election Is still to bo
secured. Unless good work at t!o
caucus of tho party is bioked up by
good work at tho polls for tho party
thero is only fireat loss. Tho good
done at tho primaries loaves only
ohagrlu at the result at tho polls and
voters loso confidence in our political
methods. This is especially the caso
with tho farmers. They outnumber
the town politicians ut tho polls, hut
not at the primaries, nnd aro often
dissatisfied at tho outcomo because
they let slip the vital opportunity to
achieve good results by not attending
tho party primaries that make tho
nominations. It is only in extra
ordinary cases that majorities are
overcome after the purty tickets aro
put in tho Held and party alignment
tako place. Tho whole tendenoy
then is to carry tiie parly ticket in
nfuo cases out of ten. This is some
times overcome whuu glaringly im
proper nominations uro mado and
an extraordinary eflort Is made to
defeat such. But it will not do to
depend upon the ballot to ovt-rcoinu
tho evils of the cancus. It cannot
bo relledupou to afford relief from
bosslsm, but moro often fails.
The farmers and independent
citizens can literally tako possession
of the primaries aud conventions of
Marion cunly. Thoy uro not
obliged to do tills hut it is plutnly
their duty so tu do. Not to run any
party us a fanners' party exclublvely,
or to control Its actions by mug

who believe In u people's govern
ment nhould get out nnd work for It

professional politicians to inako all
tbo display of political patriotism.
The people urn entitled to greater
not result from political contests
nnd yet too often J hey ro them
ftelvfs to blame for not achieving
more. Higher idtil aud better
results demand creator zeal aud de
