STATE OF MAINE
OLD STRONG REPUBLICANS ARK
BURIED UNDER AN AVAL AN-
CHE OF DEMOCRATIC VOTES.
FIRST IN THIRTY YEARS
Portland, Maine., Sept. 12.—Late
returns for legislature give twenty
democrats and eight republicans
out of thirty-one in the sen a ti and
fifty-eight democrats and forty-night
republicans out of 151 in the bouse.
There was no uncertainty in the
voice with which Maine today re-
corded her preference for governor,
and her attitude on the Issues of the
campaign generally, the plurality
given to Frederick M. Plaisted of
Augusta (democrat,) being decisely
large, while three of the four con-
gressional districts which avo ordin-
ary strongly republican returned de-
Early returns also indicated that
the legislature might be democratic
and elect a democrat as successor to
United States Senator Hale.
In the face of the sweeping demo-
cratic victory, the republican lead-
ers were overwhelmed with surprise
and the magnitude of their success-
es astonished even the most san-
guine of democrats. It was the
first beating the republicans of
Maine, the state of Blaine and Reed,
had had in thirty years, and by a
coincidence. Harris M. Plaisted,
father of the present successful can-
didate, was1 Maine's last democratic
governor in the year 1881.
Asher C. Hinds of Portland, par-
liamentary clerk of the house of rep-
resentatives, was defeated for con-
gress in the first district while Con-
gressman Burleigh in the third dis-
trict and Congressman Swasey In the
second also went down to detent.
Colonel Plaisted, the ?overnor,
elect, has a plurality larger than tha
given two years ago to his defeated
opponent, Governor Bert M. Fer-
nald of Portland. Colonel Plaisted
was born in Bangor in 1864. He
ran for mayor of Augusta five, times
and won four elections.

THE WORK OF THE STATE FARMERS INSTITUTE WILL BE DIS-

MENT OF OUR ENTIRE STATE INSTITUTIONS
OPERATED CLUB HOUSE
Deputy Sheriff Mart Hickman went

ing and maintaining a club house

Every farmer in Haskell county
should be present at the court
house in Stigler at 1:30 next Tues-
day and hear Campbell Russell, who
;will at that time address them as
to the work of the State Farmer's
Haskell county is one of the few
in the state which has so far failed
to benefit largely from the work of
this most important department of
o'jr state institutions.
Maintained as it Is from the tax-
os paid by the people, it is strange
thai they fail to appreciate it's
great possible benefit. It Is a part
of the educational work of the State
Department of Agriculture is Tor the
farmers, giving to them the best
information resulting from the ex-
periment farms and Agricultural
Schools of the State and the United
States, and it's purpose is to bring
home to the farmers an opportunity
of learning and adapting the very
best methods of raising and market-
ing the crops grown in this State.
Then the department stand3 ready
to give to the farmers of this coun-
ty a large sum of money in pre-
miums for the best of products, and
unless proper appreciation is shown
for the work this will be Inst to
our county, and to our farmer.
Don't fail to be out to hear him.
The protracted meeting which has
been in progress at the Methodist
church for the past ten days came

ing was conducted by Rev. Salter,

gee, who assisted at the begi-ining
of the meeting. There were several
conversions and a number of 'addi-
tions to the church. There was a
large congregation who attended the
services Sunday night and the ser-
mon on "Sonship" by Rev. Salter
was enjoyed by all present.
