Page 12 The Madrid Herald, December 7, 1910 HON. BERTRAND H. SNELL FOR STATE CHAIRMAN His Friendship for Governor Whitman is Main Factor in Choice—Mr. Snell also has been Wisely Independent of Factions. An article evidently inspired appeared fiom Potsdam in the Watertown Times of Satuiday afternoon. After slating that Mr. Snell had left for Washington and should be addressed at Room 350, House Office Bldg., the article stales the probability oi Mr. Snell's accepting the very high honor and further declares tha 1 the predominant factor in the situation, according to the Congress- man's friends, is his friendship tor Governor Whitman, with whom he has been on close terms for years. While the. fact is not gener- ally known, the Governor and the Representative fiom the 31st dis- trict have been intimate friends since their college days in Amherst College together, and Mr. Snell has been a frequent visitor at the executive mansion in Albany since his election to congress a year ago. A newcomer into the field of politics, Mr. Snell has steered an independent course, having no embarrassing affiliations and owing his success to no one save himself. It is pointed out that Mr. Snell has the respect of the state administration and friendship of the Governor, which are necessary for the harmonious working of the state committee and at the same time he does not face the downright opposition of the so-called Old Guard, though poss'bly the latter may not prefer him, owing to his support of the anti-Barnss forces at the meeting of the organization iu New York last spring. The Congressman, himself,is something of anorganizer, the vote which his county 1 oiled up in the campaign just passed having proven this. When Mr. Snell succeeded to the reins of the G. O. P. in St. Lawrence he assumed a task which was scarcely enviable. Long years of boss rule had created distrust and general discord which the election of the late Congressman Merritt to another term while on his death bed had intensified. Contrary to every precedent the new congressman set out about the county after his election, driving through all sections asking the people what they wanted. There were frank gasps of astonishment in all quarters. The tak- ing of the people into the confidence of the party was something new, but how well it succeeded, the condition of the organization today shows. There is good feeling and harmony where discord and petty jealousy prevailed and it would be difficult to find today a Republican in the county who is at odds with his party's manage- ment. Matters which have lain dormant for years in the congress- ional district, unable to make headway on the representative's desk at Washington have been cleared up and, above all, the county and the district have had a representative who has given his services for the salary he has drawn. Ashe devoted himself to business, Mr. Snell has devoted himself to congress and he has been a hun- dred per cent congressman. Mr. Snell is not greatly given to taking orders, a fact which some members of his party discovered in New York last spring, but neither i s he prone to give them. His success in the political arena in the North Country has been due, his fnencs say, to find- ing out what the people want and giving it to them as nearly as it lay in his power. Those who have known him since boyhood believe that he would have no difficult}'in applying these principles to a state organization, particularly as he would have two 3-ears to acquaint himself with his new duties before an active campaign set in. We who have known \Beit\ from boyhood and appreciate his energy and tact feel that he would make an excfllent State chair- man. It also is significant in this connection to remember th it Governor Whitman fY,er£e« from the tlection as New Yoik\s favorite ton fortht vrt .-i.ienti.il nomination in 192'X As such Mr. Snell would In- i!,t* (JIAIH.OIV pi.lineal maD;;gt-r.

Not Very Flattering. Bobby, aged five, though just two years his sister Lucy's senior, was fa- therly toward her, always explaining everything to her that she had the least doubt about. One day we over- heard this little lecture on tke discrim- ination between beans and human be- ings: \Now baby, a benn Is some- thing that's good to eat, but a human bean—wjhy, that's a lady.\ More Than Bridget Could Stand. Mistress—\If anyone calls, Brid- get, tell them I'm engaged.\ Bridget —\Thin mum, 01 must give yez notice to lave. Oi always thought yez was married to luc gintleman Oi call mas- ter. Slch i state av things is dis- graceful, an 01 won't sthop in the house.\ Smile Always Gets Results. Do you know that when your face wears a smile, other people smile, too, without knowing why? Or when you look cro v ss or downcast, other faces beeoine shadowed? It is a fine thing to pass your lightness of heart along, but how about the other? If we are feeling sad, let us try to keep it to ourselves, and not, by an overcast face, pass it on to someone else.—• Evangelical Hera'd. Makes for Success. The talent of success is nothinr more than doing what you can do well, and doing well whatever you do, with- out a thought of fame.

Rothenberg 12S Knox Street, Ogdensburg The Cause of Gray Hair. j A northern woman was visiting a friend down south. One morning the northern woman, Mrs. IC, was prepar- ing for breakfast. She stopped a mo- ment, rather alarmed at the number ot gray hairs that were beginning to be sprinkled among the black. An old colored woman came into her room while she was looking at the gray locks in the mirror. \Oh I'm getting old, Mary!\ she re- marked to the colored woman, busy with ber work. \Old? \VThy honey, you looks like n spring lamb!\ exclaimed the old color- ed servant \No I'm old. I know it. Look at my gray hair. That's the best sign I know of. Gray hair means old age to me.\ \Law missus, gray hair ain't no sign of old age. That's jist a sign of worri- ation and a weak mind!\—Indianapolis News. Armed Plants. Many plants protect themselves from their enemies by the use of spikes er prickles and venom, just as certain ani- mals do. Of those using the first nam- ed device there are, as a naturalist painted out, innumerable examples. The bramble' the gorse and the holly are familiar instances of shrubs and trees \armed to the teeth,\ so to speak. Many plants imitate the reptiles in arming themselves with venom. Of these are the deadly nightshade, or belladonna, and the nux Tomica. Less destnii-lively inclined are those XJants which are simply protected by their disagreeable taste. The common j buttercup, whh-h is one of 1-hi-Ke, is generally shunned by horses and cat- tle. A plant whirh is profe.-ted by e I disagreeable smell is the figwort. Onl; 1 that hardy and insensitive animal the \ goat, will touch it.—London Answers. REPORT OF THE CONDITION Of the Madrid Bank at the Close of Business on the 29th Day of Nov- ember 1916.
