The purpose Counties outside of New York City did not have much to say, so it seems, when the final count was made of the vote on the pro­ posed amendments to the State Constitution. In other words, the tremendous vote cast by New York City simply swung the tide. This fact became decidedly plain when the State Board of Canvas­ sers met here this week in the office of Secretary of State Moses, and proceeded to affix their sign­ atures, one and all, to the tabula­ ted statements. Here’s a fair sample of what happened. Twen­ ty-five counties voted against the Executive budget, and yet the amendment was carried by i,- 291,990 to 446,107 with New York City voting 788,834 favor­ able and 101,945 against the amendment. The same story might be told of all the other amendments. The one relating to the cit}*- debt limit was carried in but eight counties, but New York City was for it, and it went across by 961,- 632, to 799,867, with New York City contributiing 653,199 in its favor and 244,830 against. The grade crossing amendment was carried four to one, while the amendment increasing the salar ies of the Governor, Lieutenant Gov u'lior and legislators, though d_it:ated in no less than 49 coun­ ties, won out with about 400,000 votes to spare. There were 23 counties against the amendment making the Gov­ ernor the head of the Executive Department, which was carried by a vote of nearly three to one. Every county downed the pro­ posed amendment on the four year term. There were 42 conn- ties against allowing the construc­ tion of a road up Whiteface Mountain, but New York city stepped in and the amendment won out by more than 400,000. The amendments relative to the condemnation by counties of land and the annexation of territory by cities went over by a vote of two to one. PERSONALS —Mrs. L. H.

To take into the inmost shrine of the soul the Irresistible force whoso puppets wo seem to be—^Death, and Change, the Irrevocability of a van­ ished past, the powerlessness of man before the blind hurry of the universe from vanity to vanity—to feel these things and know them is to conquer them.—Bertrand Russell. Neat Way to Put !t. Alice was calling on grandmother, and announced her intention of going home to make ready for Bessie’s party, “May I go to the party with you?” asked grandmother. Alice shook her head sadly. “Why not? Am I too old?” “Not too old,” said Alice, “huf your face will not match the chil­ dren’s-” That Fixed Gaze.

I’d have more room.” chances are that she is looking him over in an effort to discover grease spots on nls clothing.—Topeka Cai»i« tal Look for the Best. If your eyes look for nothing but svil. you wUl always see evil tri­ umphant; but il you have learned to let your glance rest on sincerity, sim­ pleness, truth, you will ever discover, deep down in all ihings, the silent overpowering victory of that which you love.—Maeterlinck, Mauser Rifle^ The Mauser rifle was invented by the Mauser brothers, who were born In Wurttemberg, Germany. In 1SG7 the brothers left Germany and set­ tled in Liege. The Spani h troops in the Spanish-American war were armed with It, and derived great ad­ vantage in effective rifle fire over the American volunteer regiments armed with the Springfield .45.

The lecturer raised his voice. “1» Is my belief, and I venture to a&Sert It,” he declared, “that there isn’t a man in this audience who has ever done anything to prevent the destruo* Hon of our vast forests.” A rather timid, henpecked looking man quietly arose in the rear of the hall and said: ‘T—er— shot woodpeckers.”—Bl» Remember Only Today.
