Editor Butler, of the drove Hun, ia;
a mighty good loser. He was one ol
the staunchest supporters of Govern-
oi Cox and of Scott Ferris, and work-
ed untiringly through his newspaper
for tbeir success. But now that the
campaign is over, he proves be is a
good sport. Across the front page
of the Hun last week, he placed a
string of democratic "roosters," turn-
<d upside down. Editorially, he de-
clares: "Anyway, a little change
may do the Democratic party good."
With a sense of humor, in a front-
page editorial, he exclaims. "It’s
enough for one day. If the republi-
cans want anything else, we hope
they Just take it—not ask for It."
The editor took bis first ride on
the K. O. d G. railroad, from Kalina
doubt if there Is a phrase more
| overworked recently than "Now that
Is over, etc." Para-
graphed and editorial writers are us-
ing the result of the election as a ba-
sis of tt.eir comment--and rightly xo.

Nobody was more completely sur-
prised at the outcome than I was—
and I was fairly certain of a republi-
can victory, too. The overwhelming
nature of the victory wax nothing
short of historic. The people of the

to do to get prosperity is to elect a
new president There are also those
who appear convinced that the result
of the election is s sure sign that the
nation is "going to the dogs.” Both
views are childish in the extreme. A
man the other day told me that in
his opinion the election wax a death
blow to the farmers, and predicted
that the Federal Farm U>an Act

To me, utterences of this sort are
very absurd. They betoken super-
tlcizllt In tbe extreme. The govern
ment of this nation ia not a partisan
government, ia the sense that it de-
liberately plans the exaltation of one
clan* of citizens at the expense of an-
other class. The people -the major-
ity of them- -get what they want.
They have voted to place a
bring hark a hundred dollars in re-
turns. But when they got cold feet
end quit, they aren’t hurting the
publishers any more than they are
hurting themselves. They are "cut-
ting off their noses to spite their
laces." We admit that the 3.1 und|
one third percent increase spoken of
above doesn't cotue the first week.
It is the cumulative effect of a cam-
paign carried on regularly and per
sixtenrly for a year. If the 3 per-
<ent were all spent in one grand
blowout, it would he wasted, hut con-
tinued over the entire year every

:n the world. Should the merchant
turn up his nose at that 33 1-3

merely because one dinky liltlo ad*
fails to All hit pockets with coin?
Big city xtorex spend from 5 per-!
cent to 7 percent in order to get the
enormous business they require, and
very few of them have filed any
bankruptcy papers ax yet. The Re
publican hopes the ITyor merchants
will gm the 1 percent "bug” in their
businesa. and put Pryor on the map
as a merchandising community
