TAFT'S UNPOPULARITY IN^REAil S
WHAT littlo popularity Taft ever TMpl .is leaving
Lim as the days speed by. He called Oklalir
a "Zoological Garden of Cranks." He denounced
our constitution. He advises increases in tbe rates
on second-class postage, fo that tbo poor people of tbe
county are denied tbe rigbt to have cheap publications
and information. Ho denounces LaFollette, Cura-
munH and Bristow, who are really by every one eon-
ceded to be the best of tbo Republican party. He
clings to "Old Rickety Uncle Joe" and councils with
him on all matters of state. Tbe people tooji Teddy's
advice and elected him, but they are now sorry they
heeded the advice of the strenuous one. He fired
Garfield, the son of tbe martyred president. He fired
Pincbot, the man who tries to prevent the public do-
main from all being stolen by the pirates and takes
unto himself a band of officers who are now being
tried before a joint commi tee of congress like so
many Oklahoma bootleggers for their frands while in
office. Teddy gave the people advice that they will
not take again. Tbo people did not know they were
electing a Joe Cannonite. The;. Jtnow it now, but
are like the uaan who locked tbo stable after the horse
Bi ild the bridge.
Knocking never builds, but very often ruins good
towns. What are you? •
Here's hoping that Paris, will soon be the same
gay-hearted Paris again.
All announcement fees must be
paid in advance. There will posi-
tively be no deviation from this
rule. All announcements $5.00.
The President complains that nobody "drops
in" at the White Jlouse. But many have dropped

When we get the bridge, it will be an easy nmt-
ter for us to secure other good things for Lexington.
Join tbe boosting brigade.
An Indiana statesman says "everything looks
rosy for the republican party, nevertheless." Still,
everything generally looks rosy just before a sunset,
for that in«tter.
The New York Herald is booming Gaynor for
president. There is room for this boom to grow, and
evidently tbe Herald is of the opinion that it should
have plenty of time.
The thrusting of "Uncle Joe" into outer dnrknef-
is not the easy matter some people think, porhap-
The disquieting circumstance is that "Uncle Joe" hai
every trust in the country back of him.

A Contagious Affection Found In Live Men Only
ENTERPRISE is that magic combination of brains and initiative that makes one business man tower
bead and shoulders above another.
LN'I ERPRISE is the power that builds big success right over the fresh graves of business failure. It
attracts to its possessor steams of Golden Profits that others dream about but never see.
ENTERPRISE reaches out to see what ean be accomplished tomorrow, and then does it TODAY.
It keeps its fingers on the pulse of human wants and keeps a field glass leveled on the Future. It antici-
pates demands that are yet I NBORX, and gets ready for them.
ENTERPRISE to the business man means good management, spotless service and liberal dealings.
I'.NIERI RISE means progressing <>f thought, widening ideas, and concentration of effort.
ENTERPRISE means breaking away from traditions that block your progress and habits that bold
you back. It means doing business according to the best light that you have NOW—not the best light of a
dozen years ago.
We are now facing tbe golden opportunity which has been knocking at our doors for the past few days,
and some of our most Enterprising and Energetic Citizens have opened the door, and we are now face to face
with one of tbe most liberal Bridge Propositions that has come our way in many years, and why not every-
body put their shoulders to tbe wheel with that vim and determination that will arouse that spirit of EN-
I ERPRISE which has long since been buried by some of our best Citizens.
Let s wake up to the realization of the fact that we, or at least some of us, have been trying to devise
some means by which we could interest Capital, either foreign or local, to bridge this awful and most treach-
erous stream which bars our progress, mars our pleasure trips, and as it were shuts us out from tbe world
so far as market and transportation is concerned.
We are living in the garden spot of Oklahoma, ami are ablcj to raise any kind of crops that will grow
in the temperate zone. \\ e are selling more good horses and mules than any other locality in our state.
\\ e paid more Cash for cotton in 1909? according to our population, than any other town in the state.
All this has been accomplished under tbe most obstinate conditions, that is, NO BRIDGE. How
much more business might we have done, how many more families would come and cast their lot with us,
if we coy Id pride ourselves with a good STEEL RRIDGE?
It places two railroads at our verv door without building new towns at every cross roads. WE MUST
HAN E A BRIDGE located as we will be, in the very shadow of two of the largest packing plants in the
Southwest. Did you ever stop to think that Oklahoma City consumes nearly eight thouand gallons of milk
daily, laying nothing about butter, chickens and eggs? Can we afford not to help open the door to such a
Now. Dear Brother, come and help us what von can. Muster us a little ENTERPRISE VND WE
WILL HAVE A BRIDGE.
