Hon. T. A. Wagoner, County
Judge, will address the voters at
Carney on Saturday October 24,
at 2 ;30 p. m.
Come out^and hear the issues dis-
cussed from a Republican stand-
Thousands of young men will cast
their first ballot at the coming elec-
"Rats no longer are worn in the
hair," says a woman's magazine. No
they seem to have been supplanted
by those little rows of mice.
There have been several courts
martial in the army recently for
drunkenness. As a means of advanc-
ing the cause of temperance the stand-
ard set by these trials leaves the
Temperance lecturer and the W. C.
T. U. worker far in the rear.
Governor Cummons the Republican
eovernor of Iowa, said: "All the
robberies committed by all of the in-
urance companies in all times in the
past does not amount"to one-fifth of
the robberies committed under the
Dingley law in one single yeir."
Edward Polak, vice-president of
the Bronx Real Estate Brokers, has
made this reply to an invitation to
join in the "prosperity" parade for
Taft and Sherman: "With over
15,000 men out of employment in
this ci y. I fail to see the prosperity
you speak of. I want no more of it.
The only thing that can restore pros-
perity is the election of Bryan.
Take a wide-mouthed bottle of
good clear glass and fill it with fresh
water. Then put into it two teaspoon-
fuls of finely powdered alum. In
fair weather, and when it is likely to
continue fair, the liquid will be clear,
but at the approach of cloudy or
rainy weather the mixture will be-
come feathery looking. This bar-
ometer will indicate a change of
weather 36 hours in advance.
Although living under a Republi-
can National administration, Repub
lican state, county and city adminis-
trations citir.ens of Chicago are being
asked to raise a fund of $500,000 for
the benefit of starving children. All
the Chicago papers are making ap-
peals for the collection of such a fund.
They do not conceal the fact that
there is immediate necessity for the
relief of more than 15,000 chiidren
found suffering from hunger in the
publi? schools in that city. City of
ficials, headed by the Mayor, have
the matter of relief in hand.
Much was heard about "soup
houses" in 1896,but no such condition
as this was given by Republican or-
ators, who made the panic of 1893
the burden of their speeches, and yet
Mr. Taft, Governor Hughes and other
Republicans on the stump are predict-
ing that the country will go to the bad
in the event of Mr. Bryan's election.
There were no starving school chil-
dren in *93, and us Mr. Bryan aptly
said in his speech to the Bryan and
Kern Business Men's Association in
this city official statistics show that
the losses by reason of business fail-
ures for nine months in the present
fiscal year are in excess of those for
the same period during the panic of
It does not lie in the mouth of Judge
Taft to prophesy hard times in the
light of the record of the present ad-
ministration, of which he is the shin-
Repnbiican Tariff And Panics,
Ex-Secretary Shaw, a leading Re-
publican is the authority for the state-
ment that the "stringency of 1907 is
generally conceded to have been the
severest the world has ever witness-
ed." And that panic came undej
the Dingley tariff passed by the Re-
publicans, though in their platform
they had solemnly (and falsely) de-
clared that "a Republican tariff has
always been followed by business
prosperity." The fact that a Repub-
lican tariff was followed by "the se-
verest panic the world has known"
proves that Republican tariff panics
went hand in hand in 1873 and 1907.
The tuberculosis congress serious-
ly condemned kissing and declared
that disease is often conveyed by
that means. Married people will
doubtless listen and take heed but
young lovers can still be depended
upon to defy the deadly germ and
preserve the poetry of literature and
Oklahoma Produced 40 million
barrels of oil last year, the value of
which, added to its gas production,
was greater than the combined gold
and silver production in any Amer-
can state, territory or possession.
Bryan And Prosperity.
When Bryan is elected there will
be no sensational tirades against men
of wealth. The laws will be enforced
fairly and without bluster. There will
be no favoritism. No Mortons will be
whitewashed and other railroad men,
less guilty, punished. No steel trust
will be coddled while non-contribu-
tive trusts will be harassed. Every-
body will get—no the promise of the
gambling phrase of a"square deal"—
but a fair chance and equal rights and
no proscription or irjury to business.
We shall then have no such condi-
tion as the following descibed in a
press dispatch from Pittsburg on the
8th day of February, 1908:
'The cry of the unemployed daily
grows more distressed in Pittsburg.
There are 15,000 men idle, and the
•>pecter of the dreaded soup houses
again makes its appearance. The first
soup house will be opened by the
Salvation Army Monday morning,
and unless there is some redical and
prompt change for the better, more
places of this kind will be in demand
before many days have elapsed. The
situation is not really alarming, but
it is bad enough. Soup houses have
been the dread of the business men
and civic leaders, and every effort
has been made to avoid them."
Probably that Milwaukee hermit
who refused to wash for eight years
was no.t a teetotaler and consequently
did not want to encourage any undue

A Philadelphia heiress alleges that
she went through a mock marriage
with an American for the purpose of
keeping her parents from purchasing
a foreigner with a title for her. We
can hardly believe her story is true,
because it is reported that her moth-
