THE "CAUSE" STILL LIVES, The defeat of the Nonpartisan League in North Dakota is going to act as a spur to the managers and organizers in the state of Washing- ton. Far from being discouraged these leaders In the movement are going right ahead with their work. They are not going to gi~e up, though, of course, the campaign is going to be more difficult, the pro- gram harder to put over. But the leaders are going to keep right on. And why shouldn't they? Why should they give up good jobs he- cause their whole scheme has proved a dismal and expensive failure in North Dakota? These political re- formers are not so easily discour- aged. Which statement translated into words of one syllable, so: to speak, means that they l~ave lost none of their burning enthusiasm for a cause that provides a meal ticket with a little something left over. One of the most Interesting things that has been brought out In the various examinations that have been made of Nonpartisan affairs is the fat fees it paid to the faithful lead- ers and any officeholder dislikes to be separated from hls source, jr income. Of course the Nonpartisan leaders are not discouraged--that is, not suf- ficiently to permit themselves to give up lucrative jobs and .abandon the income-producing business of reform- forming the world politically. Prob- ably if Mr. Simpson, the imperial leader of the lately lampooned Ku Klux Klan, was asked concerning his plans for the future he would say, too, that his recent experiences have only spurred him on to greater ef- forts, that the investigation of .the Klan has been discouraging in a mea- sure, but that he is not going to per- mit this to interfere with his cam- paign for membership and the sale of embroidered nighties with night- caps to match. Why should he, any more than the Nonpartisans, let go so easily or a business that has proved a valuable concession? He will "lay low" for a time, perhaps, until the clouds roll by, but in the words of tho stage comedian of a few decades ago he will "bob up serenly from below" when the time is ripe. So prepare to greet the Nonparti- san organizers within a short time as they make their rounds of the farming districts. Ann prepare to hear 'a full and complete and most convincing explanation of the why the league failed in North Dakota and was kicked out bodily by the voters. Listen very carefully to this explanation, for these people are the only ones in the world who can "ex- plain." Why should they gRve up hope? Or why should Mr. Simmons give up hope? A cause is not lost to the or- ganizer until the income fails. In- deed, to them the income is the cause itcir.--Seattle Times. EVERETT PRAISES PALOUSE. That the Palouse high school Is fostering an institution that is at- tracting state wide attention should be a matter of pride to all patrons of our school system. The students of Palouse are publishing a little pa- per which is called The High School Booster. It is efficiently organized, having an editorial staff and a busl- hess staff. They are getting out a four-column four-page paper that would reflect credit on a much, larger high school. The editor of the Ko- dak, a publication put out by the students of the Everett high school, considers the Booster entitled to fa- vorable editorial comment, as Is seen hy the following extract taken from the Kodak: "The High School Booster of Pa- louse, Washington, is a wonderful ex- ample of school spirit. This high school is situated in the wheat fields of eastern Washington. The Booster shows great earnestness and illus- armament. Men are not yet ready to make pruning hooks of their swords. The day has not yet come when the lion and the lamb will lie down to- gether, unless the lamb is inside the lion. However, straws show which way the., wind is bh)wing and the fact that the nations have consented to discuss the situation is encouraging. Things are not accomplished in a day. Perhaps 1000 years from now ~he spirit of Jesus will be deeply enough rooted in the human soul so that disarmament will be accom- )lished. WHY NOT A. L. MAXWELL ~. A. L. Maxwell, one of the most ef- ficient officials of Whitman county has had in many years, is now being :onsidered by the county commission- ers to fill the place made vacant by he resignation of J. B. Sanborn. A better man could not be found in the ,udgment of The Republic, because he is in close touch with and has his :lnger on the pulse of the county ,york, having been with the board at ts husiness meetings for several ;ears past. In A. L. Maxwell the !()linty would have a cmnmissioner that would take up the work just ,,.here it was left off by Mr. Sanborn[ and would carry to completion the] dans now under consideration with-1 out having to spend months in ac-] luainting hhnself with conditions. His appointment would save the :ounty hundreds of dollars and by his :onservative business methods would be by far the most logical man to fill ~he shoes of Mr. Sanborn. It appears to The Republic that It would only be 'a matter of good judgment on the part of the commissioners to place A. ~. Maxwell in this very important po- sitien for the unexpired term, Certainly the goed judgment of (!on~ missioners Price and McCoy would not err in appointing a man xln, is out of touch with the county easiness over the head of such a man :is the county has found in Mr. Max- well. Strictly as a matter of business, qot political, or as a matter of friend- dill), hc should be named. -X-. ADVERTISING PAYS. Advertising is the most important gactor in modern business, John J. 1Hgert, United States commissioner )f education declared in an address be, fore the Des Moines advertising club last July. hnportant as are the "actors of labor, raw material, pro- ]action, marketing and organizatlon, rune of these, he said, are as import- mt as advertising. "'Advertising is the selling through )ublicity," Dr. Tlgert said. "These include, of course, creating a vogue, ~Pmulating good will and maintain- ng custom. In 1911 a summary was nude of the reliable amounts or honey expended Yn different media )f advertising. At that time the total amount spent fdr advertising in this country was $800,000. Since that .[me the amounts expensed have In- creased by leaps and bounds. The mmunt expended today for advertis- ing w~)uld quite easily go over $2,- 000,000,000. "In 1911 the newspaper was the greatest medium of advertising and it still stands as such. It is the only medium that can be used for [mine- diets effect. The magazine, however, has its advantages. "Advertising and salesmanship are darried on most effectively. The two are planned in conjunctfon, and yet advertising is the more important factor of the two." WEATHERMAN ASSISTS FARMER. Warning of Approaching Blizzard Will Help Live Stockmen. Now that the winter season is ap- ,roaching the weather ~ureau of the United States department of agricul- ture is perfecting its service to assist stockmen and agricultural interests in general against the dangers of cold waves, heavy snows, high winds and blizzards. The increased use of the wireless by the department of agriculture will expediie the handling or weather forecasts in the western states. Plans have been worked out whereby with- in an hour or two at t'ae outside al- ter the weather bureau msues t~e warning, every community will be in possession of it. In fact, every ~n- ,lividual farmer or rancher who has a telephone will be in possession or it, for, under the stem perfected, the wireless will be useff to commun- icate forecasts of blizzarMs, heavy snows, etc., to central pornts, where arrangements will be made to tele- phone the information to all parties having telephone services, trates what a small school can do." In event of a severe winter, such ~----~---~ as has heen predicted, the perfected WILL THE WORLD DISARM? services of the weather ~ureau will Today representatives of the chi~.f un(hmbtedlv save stocknnen and far- nations of the world are convening mers in the west hundreds of t]~ou- at Washington to discuss the peas[ tsands of dollars in preventlng Iosses hllities of disarmament.

The world Is staggering] Eight eggs from 100 hens in seven under the load of war. Yet greedI days, or 1042 eggs from 280 birds in and selfishness are too strong ln tthe same period, which: This differ- man's makeup to allow complete dia-~ ence was actually found in a flock of birds during a culling demonstration~ conducted by W. D. Buchanan, exten- sion poultry specialist of the State college In a flock in \Vharcom county. The birds were culled and separateC~ for seven days, at which time a rec- ord of the number of eggs was taken. The record shows that the 100 culls only laid eight eggs in a week's time, while the 280 good birds laid 1042 eggs in the same time. Washington Cows Pirst. Washington cows stood first in com- parative figures on the production o~ 40 pounds or more butterfat per cow In eight western states, as follows', Washington, 19.8 per cent of cows tested gave 40 pounds or more fat; Oregon, 19.7; California, 18.6; Idaho, 13.1; Arizona, Nevada and Utah, 6.8; Colorado, .36. The ten highest pro- ducing cows in Veashington gave an average of 76.32 pounds butterfat for the month, which is over 900 pounds per annum. This is a remarkable rec- ord, as the average for the state is about 200 pounds and for the United States only 160 pounds. BANKRU I SAt ;iii ii ,0,, Millinery Goods.
