According to the New York World
the Democratic party is neither dead
nor half-dead. It polled ti,398, 182 votes
last fall, an increase of 1.815,211 over
11*04, as against a Republican increase
of 14,190. It elected Governors in Ohio.
Indiana, Minnesota, Nebraska. Colora
do, Montana and North Dakota. It has
gained a United States Senator in In
diana and also in Oregon. "Statistics,
however, tell only a small part of the
story of the rehabilitation of the Dem-:
ocratic party,” says The World. “The !
old factional feuds are dead. The coun- !
try is united again. It is in better con- j
dition than it has Inen since 1.892, and
has every prospect of being in still bet-1
ter condition two years trom no v than
it is to-day.”
The revenue of the State for 1908 \
showed an increase of more than half a
million dollars over 1907, according to
the report of State Treasurer Park. The

$5,888,273.16; for 1907, *4.818,704.83 ;

pleasantly entertained Friday evening
by Miss Margaret Herring at a valen
tine party at the home of Mr. and Mrs.
G. G. Culpepper. The decorations
throughout were tastefully adapted to
the occasion, hearts being conspicuous
ly in evidence, in the course of the
evening dainty refreshments were
served in the dining-room. The favors
were hearts. Following the supper an
archery contest formed a novel feature
of the entertainment, a heart serving
as a target for the arrows from Cupid’s
bow, kindly lent by him for the occa
sion. The successful contestant among
the young ladies was Miss Marie Sew
ell, who received as a prize'a pretty
hand-painted blotter. Mr. Edward
Nall won the gentleman’s prize, a pipe-
rack, with pen and ink decoration. The
postoffice offered a convenient medium
