of the story of a little rural-
looking fellow that came to the
City during Fair time. He was
standing just off the curbing,
talking to a friend, when a
speeding auto ran over him.
; He sat up and began to rub Ins
head 111 a dazed way. A motor-
cycle cop came rushing after
'he auto and tan over him again.
This time his friend went to his
rescue, and after getting him
safely upon the sidewalk, asked:
"vv 11 y didn't you get out of the
way, John?" The fellow was
quick to reply: "Well, how in
thunder do ye reckon I knew
the bl mud thing had a colt?''

TREASURER LINCOLN COUNTY
The attitude and action of the Republican leaders at
Chicago in 1912 showed lo all thinking men, that the
only thing the Republican Leaders had at heart was the
securing and control of office. That the welfare of the
people was not considered in any degree, and a large pei
cent of all the independent, patriotic Republicans of Ok-
lahoma, not in politics or office, but interested in the
welfare of the country, stood with the Progressive party.
The Republican party is the same today as in 1!*12,
both in nation and state. From before statehood up to
the present date, the affairs of the Republican party, ot
this state were and are in control of the same old gang,
who never had a thought politically beyond power and
the control of office
If you were u Progressive in 1912 and if you are a
Progres&ive today, you cannot afford to support any
ticket other than the Progressive ticket.
The Progressive principles of today are the same a-'
tlivy were in 1912—for the people.
The Republican and Democrat parties of today are
same as they have been for years—for the politician.
A desperate effort by tho ttand pats of the two old
parties will be made in the last hour of the campaign, to
keep the GANG at the pie counter. They may use all
kinds of dirty tactics in their efforts. But tho last day
campaign lies have very little weight.

For Your Farm Machinery
It's like burning up money to leave your farm machinery in
the fields at night-exposed to damp grass and soil and possibly
Vital parts may rust and weaken. Onk weak part may
cause the whole machihe to go to pieces.
IT WILL PAY YOU WELL
to build a cheap implement shed out in your fields to protect your
reapers, mowers, harrows, seeders, tractors, scythes, etc.,
every night and rainy day.
"A dollar saved is a dollar earned." Such a shed will save
you hundreds of dollars. It will avoid annoyance, loss of time
and repair expense and add years to the life of your machines.
The shed is quite likely to earn its cost the first year.
We have a large stock of good roofing and "common'' lumber
—just the stuff for low cost sheds.
Get the materials next time you're in town —they're ready
for you any time-at prices that will please you.
