the gravel in a small heap in the
gutter and filled a small tdbacco

Having heard of the tenderfoot
who always finds his fortune in
gold which later turns out to be
mica or pyrites, McAvany took
the gravd, less than a double
handful, into the barber shop, arid
placing it iri'a pan, washed out

some having the appearance of
lace, other as small as dust, which
had been dug from a pbcke't,

WISCONSIN PROGRESSIVE
. The overwhelming victory of
LaFollette and Wilson in the
Wisconsin presidential primaries
indicates plainly enough that
both Republicans and Democrats
in that statcat least are progres
sive. And Wisconsih has tested
out the effect of the people taking
the government into their own
hands anji turning the bosses out.
The victory of Wilson is es
pecially significant, because
though Champ Clark was the
only other candidate on the ticket
he had. the support of Harmon
and all Drnocratic reactionaries.
Harmon, Underwood and other
reactionaries jkepV off the ticket
and got back-of Clark. But Wil
son, licked, the wholej bunch, in
cluding Hearst, who is Clark's
chief backer.
There is no doubt but that La
Follette polled a much bigger
Vote against Taft than Roose
velt would have polled. This
vote, like that of North Dakota,
fridicates that while Roosevelt is
the so-called progressive choice
,of the Republican politicians, La-
Follette is the choice of the rank
and file-progressives.
Had Roosev(elt kept out of the
fight, the chance for beating Taft
and making the Republican party
truly progressive would have
been much better. For LaFol
lette was making great headway
when Teddy threw his hat into
the ring.
