Come unto me all ve that are wearv
and heavy ladened and I will give you
free transportation, free meal tickets
and your time shall go on as though

Thus spake Markus, the mighty, to

at'on of our county. In next week's
issue we expsct to let the people of

necessary for the people, and especial-
ly the democracy to know how con
ditions are, so that they may be able
to cast their votes intelligently.
Judge B F. Williams, our next

matured life, a true christian, a man
who has always lead a life that any one
might well be proud of. He is a life
long stndentof law and for a number
of years field the position as Judge In
Texas. He comes before the people
of Cleveland countv with the cleanest
of record and should for his qualities
tions and experience be elected to the
office tor which he is a candidate.

The Time to Suacrlbe
The old newspaper saving "now is
time to suscnoe" was never more
true than at present. The times are
bo full of incident, so many important
national ami State affiairs are shaping
themselves for a change, that no one
can afford to be without a metropoli-
tan dally or weekly. The St. Louis
Republic, the greatest Democratic
newspaper, is maklug a special offer of
its daily and Sunday paper Vor three
months at f 150. It is $6 year by
mall. The Twice-a-Weel Republic
is sent two times a week—104 papers-

We would ask the voters of Cleve-

ticket of this county a quorau of men
who are qualified, who are honest and
who will serve to the best of their
ability, the people of the county.
Mb. E. B. Allen, of Noble, the
gentleman nominated for representa-
tive in this the tenth district, is one
of the staunchest and most reliable
Democrats in Cleveland county. We
are truly glad to see such men coming
to the front, tor it is high time they
were if the party is to be saved from
total annihilation in this couuty. W

successful contradiction that here Is

The reason, it is said, why McKin-

account of his superstitious belief iu
