THE BULL MOOSE PSLAM OF LIFE.
(From the Springfield Union Rep.)
Tell me not in scornful phrases
That I broke my two-term word;
Promises may go to blazes
I am out to grab a third.
Art is long (and time is skipping
Faster than I like to note),
Specially the art of shipping,
Green goods to the men that vote.
Life is real and Perkins earnest,
And the third term is my goal;
Thinkest thou his coin I spurnest?
Not upon your bloomin' soul.
Lives of Bull Moose still remind us
We can put aside all shame,
If by chance we have behind us
Steel trust gents to back the game.
Let us then be up and Moosing,
With a soul for any fate,
Still attacking, still traducing,
While George Perkins pays the freight,
THE LAST FLY OP SUMMER.
'Tis the last fly of summer,
Left buzzing alone,
All her lovely companions
Are swatted and gone.
Not one of her kindred
Of summer survives,
They've given up, ere now,
Their billions of lives.
I'll not leave thee, thou lone one
To stagger about,
Since thy kindred are sleeping,
I must knock thee out.
Thus kindly I swat thee
Upon thy bald head,
As thy mates, now all swatted,
Lie buzzless and dead.
So thou too must follow;
Fly heaven's thy goal,
No longer to crawl in
The old sugar bowl.
When true hearts are withered,
And loved ones are flown,
Thou must not inhabit
The bleak world alone. —Ex.
WILLIAM HOWARD TAFT.
Rally Song for Campaign of 1912.
Tune: Hold the Fort.
Ho, my comrades! see the voters
Thronging to the polls,
Eager, smiling, earnest, honest,
This way victory rolls.
"Are you going to vote for William?"
"Yes;" the vast crowd laughed
"Yes, we're going to vote for William,
William Howard Taft."
THE SEATTLE REPUBLICAN
"We're jolly fellows like our leader,
Have no use for graft,
And we're marching on to show them
How we'll vote for Taft.
"Man of deeds not words is William,"
And the great crowd laughed,
"We don't need to tell his record,
We'll just vote for Taft."
"The G. O. P. has hung its banners
On the outer wall.
Every man's in line and marching
Ready for roll-call."
"Hold the fort we are coming
Several million strong,
Laughing, singing, cheering, working,
As we march along."
"Are you going to vote for William?"
"Yes;" the vast crowd laughed.
Wave the answer back to Lincoln,
William Howard Taft.
If the voters and taxpayers of King coun-
ty desire to look well to their interest for
the ensuing year they will rally to the can
didatcy of Edward Cudihee and elect him
sheriff by an overwhelming majarity. That
the readers of The Seattle Republican may
get some idea of the man it is supporting
for sheriff the picture of Mr. Cudihee is
herewith presented. The integrity of Ed-

ward Cudihee in this community, where he
has lived for the past twenty-five years,
is unquestioned, and he will be votd for by
all shades of political partisians. Rock
ribbed Republicans are as open in their
support of him as old-line Democrats, and
even Bull Moosers by the scores will give
him a vote. The pass word on the streets
of Seattle at present is, "Do not forget
to give Ed. Cudihee a vote."
What the complexion of the head of the
Democratic party of this state will be is a
matter of conjecture at this time, but we
do know it will not be Black, which should
be a great relief to those members of this
party who hail from the South. The su
preme court holds Judge Black ineligible
and he now threatens to break into the
supreme court as a matter of revenge.
