Ingness of Shawnee citizens to promp*
ly horlor all loyal efforts. There may
be those among us who pass their
time In spying out the faults of other#
tnd holding up those fautls as a r3a-
son for not doing a duty that is in-
cumbent upon every citizen who has
the interest of Shawnee im his heart.
The genuine town builder is the m*n
who is willing at all times to lay his
grievances against his fellow citizens
on the shelf and not consider what is
good for this or that iiWvidual, but
rather what Ib good for Shawnee.
There Is a great work to be done.
Every citizen must give of his time
and money to accomplish that work.
It can not be done by a few men who
make large contributions but must
be pre.cticnlly done by all the people.
You may not be able to give much
money, but you can I do your beat in a
financial way and by your loyalty to
home Institutions show that you'
heart is in the right place. To begin
tils work so that the right spirit will
be within you it is necessary that you
be loyal to everything that is fOT
Shawnee. When you want to buy lum-
ber, windows, doors, mill work, storo
fronts, glass and fixtures try the Shaw-

The antl-Bryanltes have hopes that
they may be able to control the com-
mittee and be able to dictate the plat-
form, and yet this Is rbt a thing re
garded as likely. The Bryan men are
not the least timid about saying rlgl.t
out in meeting that their man will be
nominated without the least show ot
strength from the opposition.
