The Democratic candidate for gov governor

and the Democrats only one, hut that
is the way that the delegation stands
now. As a matter of fact Maine was
a strong Republican state until tjhe
'Progressive party .was organized.
iMost of the menibers of that party
were Republicans, though many had
been classed Democrats. But for the
Progressive party it is probable that
the Republicans would have won by a
small majority in IMonday's election.
IMaine, ihowever can no longer be
claimed as a Republican state. Be Because

is the democratic candidate for presi president

The vote was a large one, larger
than that cast in the last presidential
election, showing that there was un-.
usual interest in the contest. ..The in-
terest 'was to :a very eonsideraole ex extent

Assuming that the Qlaine -victory of

will 'be very 'little opposition to his

he would be re-elected. The people
harve confidence in him. '.Republicans
as well as democrats are sounding

AN INDIAN MARATHON.
Remarkable Speed and Endurance
a Noted Mohave Runner.
In the early days of Ebrenberg. Ariz..
a man was frightfully burnt! by ker
osene. There was no pb.vsiinn and
no drug store in the $vn. aud so a
noted Mohave runner who lived near
by was hastily engaged to run to Fort
Yuma, a government post directly
across the Colorado river from the
present to w of Yuma.
The distance from Ehrenberg to Fort
Yuina. as the crow flies, is sixty miles.
By the shortest trail that the Indian
could take it was at least seventy-five
miles, and .he had to swim, the river
once each way. The Indian was to
get $10 for the trip and $10 addition-
al If he returned In twenty-four hours.
He prepared quickly for the undertak undertaking
ing undertaking and disappeared down the trail.
Within twenty-four hours he was
back in Ehrenberg. bringing with him
the packages of medicine for. which be
Jiad been sent. Each package bore the
labels of the Yuma dispensary. There
was no living being along the trail be
tween the two places from whom he
could have obtained any assistance
whatever. That Indian ran 150 miles
In less than twenty-four hours over a
barren, stony desert. Interspersed with

How a Husband Tried to Cure
Wife's Fear of-Pythons.
Concerning pythons, the following Is
a true story: A young lady In England
for a long time resisted her lover's
entreaties to go out to India with him
as his wife. She had a horror of the
wild animals she believed she might
encounter there, especially serpents.
At length, however, after he had issued
a sort of ultimatum, she consented to
accompany him. She did not. how
ever, leave her fears behind her and
lived In constant terror of some day
meeting what she so intensely feared,
Her husband did his best to laugh her
fears away, but without avail. Then
he resolved to try more drastic means.
A huge python was killed in the
neighborhood of his bungalow. With
put telling his wife anything about it
he ordered the reptile to be brought
into tne drawing room and coned up
as if asleep on the hearth rug. Then
he went out and called his wife, telling
her .to go into the drawing room and
that he would Join her in a few rain
utes. Soon after he beard a dreadful
scream. "That will cure her of her
.fear of serpents," he smiled to him
self and purposely, delayed .his entry.
When at last he went into the drawing
room he saw his wife lying dead on
tne noor. ana couea around her was
another huge python, the mate to the
one that lay dead on the hearth rug.
