There is a tidal waive or Democracy
rising in the hearts of the people of
this country. Whether the Democratic
party rides on its crest or its smoth-
ered beneath it depends upon the
Democratic party being Democratic.
If the party is dominated by the agents
of special privilege it will not benefit
by this growing sentiment against
privilege. If the party anywhere bows
down to the Golden Calf and prosti-
tutes Jtaelf to the greed of special in-
terests this tidal wave will sweep It
iuiu uenneu ueieui. )
Thomas Jefferson taught that the
leaders of the party must hold their
power by heeding the just demands
of the "people not by hushing them.
When a breach occurs between the '
leaders of the party and the masses in
any state the party must either have
new leaders or Its disaster is near. It)
the Democratic party is to succeed !t ;
must be progressive not reactionary.)
There is a battle going on in this sec-1
tion today between progress and re-i
action between dollars and men be-
tween money and iiiou.ls between
privilege and equal rights. If the Dem-
ocratic party i true to Its ideals' it
must stand for progress and put men
above dollars morals above money
and equal lights above privilege 'if
the party is not true to Its own princi-
ples. It cannot expect the people to be
true to It.
There has been too much sitoutiuirj
if iiiirtv mimes nml too little leitrhinir!
of the principles that political parlies
are supposed to stand for. We have
reached the point in this country that
when a man pays he Is a Democrat or
it Republican it does not necessarily
reflect the principles of government In
which he believes in and if he ex- j
presses the principles of government In j
wbk'i he believes we cannot tell from
that what political party he belongs to.
The hope of the nation must be In the
principles of Democracy and w hat the
Democratic party needs is to take a
affirmative stand for t'lem. There Is
an Independent spirit abroad in the
land Unlay and It Is to this spirit that

C. K'.rltpatrlck Secretary Chamber of
Commerce Chickasha Okla.: Dear
Sir I rote with pleasure your vlewj
relative to boosting Chickasha. Name-
ly develop our agricultural res mrces.
Now I am frank to admit ilia-. I am
an iu" i( uUural crank but let me cell
you no man can study the pis; agri-
culuual history and so judpe the tu-.
ture by the past without becoming
Our people now have a creat com-
I mereial Interest built up at Chicka
sha but let mo tell you it Is at 'be
txpense of checking on what we Live
Ritpposcd to be an unlimited deposit
which is our natural fertile soils.
There are no doubt men In Grady coun-
ty who can go to our bankers and se-
cure :. leUer of authorisation to chee.'i
certain business but
you abuse t'.ls by continu al check-
iiij:. and re-deposit nothing v ? all un-
ilerstand that lr wouM reach a limit
and to it is with our ?o!l depo.-it
Uraciy county is one of th? greatest
i and Las a land are-t of 64512 J acres
."i:h u't. .ban 400otu acres under
?arm control and not ove- 2."00'JC
acres it; cultivation. With a total
j ai reat"; devoted to co.n in the season
! of VJfts of 1 10000 acr-:s. our yle'd was
i grea.er in Lushels than was Cad !c-
.;i only with 107 M0 aces. Now th2iv
Ij a :i a son for this ?.:id 1 wan: to show
; on tht.t It b a naws? reaso?. from
thl. K.-.tural feet t'au we hav about
42 :iiilu of the WasnUa ri'er as the
crow ."lies l y reason of the angling
direction through oir county. This
valley is In width from two to six
miles wide making an average of four
which would contain 107 (KM) acres;
go with mo to the north part of the
county and I can show tojou an equal
amount of Canadian valley and level)
table landrf such fertility not equalej
In Oklahoma. Add these two ind we
have a total of 211000.
Now with all these natural condi-
tions is it any wonder that Grady
county produced these yields? Has
the Grady county farmer any right to
say we did It? Have the business men
f 'hlf-L-auh. nv- -t.ht tn R!1v that if
was through their influence that this
yield was made? No my friend it was
the natural conditions and the fertility
contained in our fertile soils.
But let me tell you that there is one
proposition that the business men of
Chickasha can congratulate themselves;
upon. And It Is this: they supplied to'
me a fund w ith which to buy seed corn j
lor urauy county tanners w ime ice.
results were not wnai i nau uopeu im.
nor perhaps w hat the donors expected.
Hut let me give you an average illus-
tration of the results of this co-operation.
Roy B. Hunt of Alex a school
boy succeeded In producing 52 bush-
1 of corn per acre while his father on
j the same farm produce-d 23 bushels.
the Hunt records show &2 bush
els and this a bad season while 1 41000 ;
acres In a good season averaged but
2S bushels. Now this is just double
our average on our 4000000 crop of
Would 000004) extr.i bushels of
corn be worth anything to the people
of Grady county?
Mr. Kirkpatriclc. this letter is now
too long but I want to congratulate
you for the judgment show n'' in the
building of a country and city. But let
me predict great as Is your commer
cial Interest today your future is
greater than the dreams of any real
estate man in Chickasha. Oilier sec-
tions may drill holes get natural gas
and flowing oils build cities through
excitement and their wells run dry.

When all the dust is settled down
Atid woman has the ballot box
Will she sew buttons on our coats.
Will she diirn the holes in our socks'
If the tin prove to u. that she
Will do these things as once she did
Ere suing by the mad suffrage bee
We'll help her to it. That's no kid.
A Many Local People Ah6 Tetifying.
The Root Juice Insruetors made
many lasting friends while here. Their
wonderful remedy has done worlds of
good at this point and rporta of cures
are being circulated from every direc-
tion. The drug store is more busy
than ever wrapping up Root Juice and
listening to the many flattering reports
of the great good It Is doing.
Mrs. Sarah Collins ald: "1 used
to bloat so at time I could hardly get
my breath; sour gases would form In
my stomach and dull heavy headaches
were at times so bad I felt a would
go crazy; my tongue coated and I al-
ways had a bad taste in my mouth. Mi-
hands and feet were cold at times and
a otner times tuey wu.u uu.u didate .representative from

hearing so much about Root Juice 1 1 acUm w Democratic
went tn the drtiir store and bought a!J
bottle of it and after using the first
bottle I went back and bought two
more bottles. 1 have used it all and
don't think I will need any more as I
feel as well as 1 ever did In my life."
Root Juice seems to re good for any
trouble of the stomach. It is sold for
one dollar a bottle or three for two
dollms and a half at II. J. Browuson' j
