by Internal discord. When the contest opons with their hereditary foe,
they will bo found acting In perfect unison.
Wayno county Republicans In particular should not permit thomsolvcs
to bq deceived by tho falso assumption on ilia part of those who aro un

hopelessly divided. Wo aro not divided. Tho dlfforonco of opinion
among us as to a national leader la of necessity only a temporary differ

appear. For Wayno county tho contest is already over. Whatovor differ

Tho Western Union has ordered 10,000 now typewriters, which is
hut a beginning, and It Is expected that within a year all telegrams, in
cluding tho day and night letters, will bo typewritten. Does this mean,
It may he wondered, the gradual extinction of that peculiar current writ
ing, rapid, open, free and intricately looped, which is known as " tele
graph hand?" It is admirable ifor its purposo but It is tho reverse of
what is nceJed for those uses for which ohlrography is still retained.
Librarians, for example, also have a special hand, but it is compact, formal
and print-like, and rapidity is less important than legibility. Tho mer
cantile hand, nowadays at least, is much less uniform, 'but It has its own
traditions. Literary people, on the other hand, when they happen not to
typewrite, follow any model they like, hut t'hey seldom employ tho easy,
ranid gallop or lope of the telegrapher's hand. That is best suited to one
who is writing from dictation, and who keeps up a steady pace after onco
getting up motion.
KILL Tim FLY.
As the warm weather approaches, that pest of pests, the house fly,
becomes not only a nuisance but tho source of disease germs of many
kinds and also tho primary cause of many fevers that are deadly during
tho summer months.
In the Interest of health It therefore becomes necessary to ilevlso
means whereby this menace to the health and even life of mankind may
bo eliminated. Vigorous campaigns have been begun all over tho coun
try against the pest among the medical and newspaper professions. Tho
Citizen will inaugurate such a campaign in Honesdale and endeavors to
rid the borough of as many of these pests as 'possible. In the first place
attention should be given to your screens and see that they are hung
r!ht. thn swat all files that come in through cracks and otherwise. The
greatest safeguarding of health in general lies In preventing the pests
from breeding. When It is realized that the descendants of a single fly
number more than a million during a season it can be readily seen that
a systematic effort to exterminate them and keep them from hatching can
accomplish a good deal. In another part of today's paper the plan of
campaign is more clearly outlined. Begin now, and swat tho fly.
It has been said that modern science and luxury has done away with
tho terrors of tho annual house-cleaning. Those who have rugs and hard
wood floors and a corps of servants are supposed to be so clean at all
times that there is no necessity for .-eating all tho carpets at once, wash
ing all the woodwork on a given day, polishing all the windows simultane
ously, fitting out the whole family with dust caps and worried expressions
and turning things generally topsy turvy.
While this may be true in some few Instances, there aro enough
homes left without rugs and hardwood floors and, What Is more important,
without the requisite number of servants to keep them in apple pie order,
to Insure tho permanency of the spring housecleanlng as an American
And no matter how neat we may become as a town, there will always
be sections worthy of the steel of the crusaders of "Clean-up Week."
Tho local Improvement Association has decided upon the week of May
G as being tho best time to clean up. aionesdale has always responded
nobly to these calls to arms against t'he common enemy 'dirt.
Inasmuch as each Individual soldier in the battle must necessarily act
for himself to a largo extent, defending his own castle In his own way, It
would not bo amiss for the army to be casting Its eye3 over the situation
and mapping out a plan of action.
Clean-up week should make the county seat a real spotless town and
the impetus gained during clean-up week should keep us clean for the
rest of tho summer at least.
THE TRIUMPH OF TAFT.
Interesting pages of political history aro being written these days.
The pre-eminent issue of the presidential campaign of 1912 has been
focused, which lias brought forth William Howard Taft as the man of the
hour, moving surely and flrmly in meeting an issue of more crucial moment
to the government than that which characterized the sound money cam
paign of 1S9G. Tho lino of clevage lies between sound constitutional
government that has stood tho test of time, and "sixteen-to-ono" judicial
recall. Tho campaign of 1S9C brought forth Marcus A. Hanna as a leader
who, in tho teeth of what at first seemed to ho a sweeping gale, firmly
stood his ground and conducted one of tho greatest educative campaigns
in our history for sound money, l)ellevlng that tho same rational common
sense of tho people would prevail against tho whirlwind of the silver
agitation, that had always appeared when a crisis threatened tho In
tegrity of American institutions.
With all the strength within him, without equivocation, William H.
Taft has taken up tho gauntlet for sound constitutional government. His
reply to tho challenge of his predecessor has dollned 'an unmlstakablo Is
sue of the campaign. President Taft insists that to destroy the inde
pendence of the judiciary Is to take away tho keystone from tho arch of
freo government. He has further insisted that irresponsible assaults up
on the Judiciary are a serious menaco to enduring government, that they
launch a rudderloss ship of state on a sea of troubles. To deny that the
people 1iave ruled, ho insists, Is a reflection on our form of government,
tho pole star of which always has been, and always will he, tho will of the
WE ARE ALL REPUBLICANS.
Much effort is being put forth by persons and journals not identified
with tho Uopuhllcan party to make it appear that the differences between
what are known as tho progressive and conservative elements In tho party
aro Irreconcilable, and that tho party itself is likely to founder on the
rocks of dissension. Tills Is very tar from tho truth. No vital prlnclplo
of tho Republican party Is at stako, no vital question is at Issuo in tho
controversy that has arisen concerning tho presidential nomination. It Is
simply that thero is a difference of opinion among Republicans as to a
choico of leader for tho coming campaign. This is not unusual. Quito
tho contrary. The battlo for tho nomination is always fought out prior
to tho national convention. Hut when tho convention has mado and re
corded Its choice, and adopted its platform, the Ttopubllcan "hosts aro
found marching together and fighting together for victory over tho com
mon enemy. Tho new doctrines put forth by Col. Roosevelt In his cam
paign for tho nomination, doctrines about which all Republicans do not
agree, aro not doctrines with which a national administration has to do,
but relate very largely to the government of tho several states. For the
most part tho declarations of Col. Roosevelt concerning policies wl'.h
which as president ho would have to deal are such as would bo heartily
confirmed by all Republicans. Tho samo Is truo of tho declarations mado
by President Taft. Thero Is no material difference of opinion among Re
publicans concerning tho policies which havo been pursued by tho party In
tho past, which govern It In tho present, or Vvhjch should control It In tho
future. It is thcroforo not posslblo to disrupt tho party over the racro
question of leadership. Political parties havo often been split asunder
by dissensions over party policies, hut rarely If over over differences of
FRESH AIR ITS IMPORTANCE TO HEALTH.
Tho cheapest nnd most accessible preventive and curative agent In tho
whole realm of medicine is fresh air.
Air is an escntlal of human life. Entering tho body .by way of the
nose nnd throat it penetrates tho smaller divisions of tho lungs, absorb
ing tho Impurities of tho blood and changing It to a bright red, healthful
nnd Invigorating fluid. Tho purer and fresher the air, tho bettor will It
j.erform this function.
Tho expelled air is loaded with wasto products of tho body and fre
quently eontnlns disease germs. Ono can readily understand why tho
samo air should not ho breathed over and over again. While you remain
in a poorly ventilated room you aro performing this Injurious act.
During tho summer open windows and out door llfo insure sufllclent
fresh air. In winter It requires moro effort to get tho best air. That Is
possibly the reason why colds, catarrhs, grip, tonsllltis and pneumonia,
all diseases of tho air passages, aro more prevalent In cold weather.
Sleep only In rooms which are well ventilated. Havo tho windows
open at top and bottom, but avoid a draught. If this is uncomfortable
because of tho cold uso moro bed clothing. Make it a rule to spend an
hour or moro each day out of doors, walking and practicing deep breath
ing. Avoid hot, stuffy, over-crowded, poorly ventilated rooms. If you aro
susceptible to colds these precautions will Increase your resistance; If jou
feel that you are perfectly healthy. It will safeguard your health. A body
Invigorated by this practice is less likely to contract infectious diseases
such as typhoid fever, diphtheria, scarlet fever and consumption, aad
when such a person becomes 111, tho chances of recovery aro much greater
than In an individual who has lived and slept In close rooms and avoided
out door exercise because of cold weather.
Consumption, which causes moro deaths than any other disease, finds
Its greatest enemy in fresh air.
