ADVERTISING RAT S ON APPLICATION Decent Polities any in the world--and a little better. While the whole country over seems America ought to have the best. to have gone riotously partizan in the scramble for delegates committed to some one or other of the candidates in the field for the presidential nomination on either the republican or democratic tickets, little Miss Monroe has set an example in fair, quiet, orderly and rep- utable political dealing that is a model to every other cwn and voting pre- cinct in the nation. The democrats had no gathering here but a few good local Jeffersonian disci- ples participated in the convention and, in the main, were elected delegates to the Walla Walla gathering. They worked well and harmoniously, without tk:ng al y strong prtizan side in the convention melee, and, as a result, brought back home to Monroe the hon- or of having one of the delegates to the national democratic pew-wow at Baltimore. The republicans of Monroe, irrespect- ive of personal presidential preference joined in the action of the Commercial club in inviting the holding of a county convention here and set the wheels in motion that resulted in the holding of a convention of the members of the republican party of Snohomish county. And the men most active in the fight for the convention were mostly sup- porters of President Taft. The republicans of Snohomish county should honor and respect those men and reward them for their progressive spir- it. They believe sincerely in the right of the lank and file of the party to dominate the party councils and are justly entitled among them to recogni- tion on the delegation to the state con- vention. The caucus held in Monroe was a model to republicans everywhere. Ev- ery republican had a fair chance to get to serve as a delegate and, while most- ly Taft men were chosen, it was simply because Roosevelt and LaFollette sup- porters did not attend in sufficient num- bers to get uroper representation and many of those who did attend voted for Taft supporters because those Taft supporters had worked for the conven- tion cause. Wall Street's Cheap Money Business men who borrow at the banks in the Pacific States pay, on an aver- age, 2 per cent. more for money than do business men in the Eastern States, according to the report filed at Wash- ington by 6,000 national banks. When we compare the rates paid by farmers, merchants and manufacturers in this section of the United States with those paid by speculators in Wall Street, the difference is even more marked. In- torest rates on the New York Stock Ex- change are often as low as 2 per cent. when men engaged in productive industries in the Pacific States are pay- ing from 7 per cent. to 10 per cent. for bank funds with which to carry on bus- iness. It certainly is a badly-organ- ized banking system that causes such wide variations in interest rates in dif- ferent sections of the country. This country ought to have a banking sys- tem that would make it as easy for the solvent borrower to get cheap money on sound security in the Pacific states as it is in Wall Street. It is up to Congress to give us a banking system as good as "OWN IT" YOUR HOME 2 best 7-room cottages in this city, will sell on monthly payments of $20 per month or less. 1 4-room cottage, monthly pay- ments $10 or less. 1 7-room cottage, monthly pay- ments $12 or less. 1 4-room cottage monthly pay- ments $9 or less.

Or imagine the furors if such an episode were staged in a Japanese city! And yet in our own land, at our own door, such scenes are becoming" almost com- mon. We pass laws to insure respect for the flag and then permit them to be ignored. We give a man the protection of our flag and permit him to call it a "rag" and without expostulation hear him declare he cares no more for it than he does the flag of Russia or Siarr But patience comes to an end. We i tolerate the preaching of isms and theo- ries without end, so long as it is done peacefully and with due respect to the laws which protect those who preach them. What the majority wishes comes to pass, for our government means the i rule of the majority. And the agitat ors must remember that. The great majority of us are patriotic people, who : have pride in the nation's achievements, who have faith in her institutions and in themselves, and who love their flag. They will not forever tolerate insults to that flag, sedition and anarchy. If honestly bent upon what they believe are reforms, hearing is assured those who preach them and they will hay( fair opportunity to accomplish what their desire. But insults and violence will only mean a seed-time as ill-omened as that when the dragon's teeth were sown that a fearful harvest might spring up.--Everett Herald. John Wanamaker said: Advertising doesn't jerk--it pulls. It begins very gently at first, but the pull is steady. It increases day by day and year by until it exerts an irresistible power. It is likened to a team pulling a heavy load. A thousand spasmodic, jerky pulls will not budge the load; but one- half the power exerted in a steady ef- fort wiP start and keep it moving. Commercial Club Transacls Business Considers a Number of Different Mat- ters of Business A regular session of the Commercial Club was held Monday evening and planned for the entertainment f the county convention. A large general committee was named to look after decorating thehall and placing banners on the streets as well as to provide au- to conveyance for the delegates to the reformatory. Among the gentlemen named were C. E. Ritchie, F. W. Thed- inga, E. M. Stephens, C.J. Stuart, C. H. Sell, J. C. Falconer, J. A. Vanasd- len, Arthur Bailey and A. Holmquist. Delegates to the good roads conven- tion at Edmonds on Saturday were named as follows: C. J. Stuart, E.M. Stephens, S. A. Buck, H. D. Matthews and J. C. Falconer. Mr. Stuart stated that it was doubtful if the bond propo- sition would carry unless the old method of having the county commissioners spend the money could be-arranged dif- ferently. Mr. Stephens said that Chair- man McCulloch had expressed willing- ness to have a committee named in the county to act wlth the board of com- missioners and arrange how the bond money should be expended. While this method is not provided for under the law, it is believed that it could be car- Notice to Creditors No. 2609 IN THE SUPERIOR COURT OF THE STATE O' WASHINGTON IN AND FOR THE COUNTY OF SNOHOMISH.

"They got to telling fish stories on the ship on which Billy Morgan was a passenger across the Atlantic. Booth Tarkington, the Indiana novelist, got off a pretty good one about a shark which a captain fed and petted and which finally saved the captain's life by keeping other sharks away from him when he was shipwrecked. It was a good story until Billy Mor- gan snarled his way into the little bunch and began to talk about the Bowersock herd of dehorned catfish up at the Lawrence dam. It Is an old story in Kansas, of course, but it was a long way from home, and Billy had to go Into details to make the bunch believe it. And so this is what he told 'em: "Some years ago Mr. Bowersock, who owns the dam that furnishes pow- er for the mill and other factories, conceived the idea that the big Kaw river catfish going through the mill race and on to the water wheel added much to the power generated. Then he read that fish are very sensitive to music. So he hired a man with an accordeon to stand over the mill race and play. The catfish came from up and down stream to hear the music and almost inevitably drifted through the race on to the wheel and increas- ed the power. 'rhe fishes' horns used to get entan- gled in the wheel and injure the fish, so Mr. Bowersock, who is a kind hearted man and very persistent, had a lot of the fish caught and dehorned. and in a year or two he had a large herd of hornless catfish. These fish not only turn out to hear the music, but they have learned to enjoy the trip through the mill race and over the wheel, so that every Sunday or oftener whole families of catfish--and they have large families--come to Bowersock's dam to shoot the chutes, something like people go out to ride on the scenic railway. "Whenever the water in the river gets low Mr. Bowersock has the band play, and the catfish gather and go round and round over the wheel, fur- ntshing power for the Bowersock mill when every other wheel on the fiver is idle from lack of water."--Kansas City Journal. Poor Material For a 8on-in-law. "Well, what is it?" demanded the head of the firm. "I hope you're not going to ask me for another raise of salaryF' "No," replied the young man. "I am going to ask you for something much more important than that. I wish to ask for your daughter's hand in mar- fiage." "'Urn! You consider her more impor- tant than a raise of salary, do you?" "Yes, sir, far more important." "Then yon can't have her. I should be ashamed to have such a boob as you in my family."--Chicago Record- Herald. Plain Hunger. "Doctor, what disease is the most prevalent among the poor?" "An alarming condition in which the nerve terminations in the stomach. stimulated by accumulated secretions of the gastric glands, send irritations to the spinal cord, by way of the pneumogastrte nerve."

A forlorn hope may not be a beauti- ful thing, but perhaps it is better than no hope at all. It is a heap easier to make a com- plaint than to eure it. Perhaps that is the reason why there are more com- plainers than curets. The person who makes many threats seldom has time to carry any of them out. It isn't considered desirable to be dilatory, but it saves a lot of work. Spite work is never artistic. Getting on In the world has nothing in common with having an easy time. The best we call do Is too often not good enough for those for whom we do it. The people who laugh at our expense are often surprised to flud their turn expensive.
