when the big store fjouse and its
entire contents of B C. Anderson

Dr. W. E. Gravely, went up in
flames The fire originated in
the Anderson store, and had
grained such a headway when dis
covered that it was impossible to
save anything from it. The large
stock of general merchandise
of Gravely & Elder was soon car
ried out, and the building which
stood within a few feet of Ander

We understand from a reliable
source that Brodhead is soon to
have a new five-room depot, but
just where this much needed im
provement will be erected is a
question that is causing consider
able comment. The Brodhead
people are very anxious that it be
built near where the old one now
staffs, feut a great many are of
the opinion that if; will be built
about one quarter mile north of
the old one. The old one has
become such an eye sore that

Mt. Vernon Graded School.
The fifth month of our school
has just closed w'lih our enroll
ment of over three hundred pup
ils. New ones are still coming.
We have set our mark for three
hundred twenty-five. Parents,
are you still helping us in this
battle? Are you still sending
your childrc-n every day and ask
ing your neighbor to send his?
Let's do not give up the fight un
til all are in. If you are not in
the army for better schools, join
now. it is never too late to do
some good.
Agriculture and domestic
science have been added to our
school. These certainly are
needed in every school. All of
our best school have them. Each
year let us make our schools a
little better by adding homething.
The first lesson in domestic
science was given this week. Miss
YYanzer, of tie Langdon Do.rnii
tory, js our teaohev. She comes
to us each Friday We will be
glad to liave the parents visit
these new classes and &ee what
we are doing. Wa are greatly
indebted to the Woman's Club for
the addition of domestic science,
We wish to tnank it for its aid to
us and for the good things it is
doing for our town and people.
It certainly is doing splendid
work.

no matter where t $
It is being said of us, for political
I effect that we voted, the Progress -tive
ticket last fall to show our
'admiration for Theodore Roose
velt.
While this is true in a sense, we
voted as we did, for far more co
gent resasons, than mere admira
tion for a. man. Admiration for
Roosevelt is born of appreciation
for his fearless leadership wherever
he has appeared in a public ca
pacity. As Moses, who was chosen
of God to lead his people out of
bondage and as Washington, and
Lincoln were raised np and put
forward as leaders in a National
crisis so the progressive spirit in
National politics recognize in
Theodore Roosevelt the ideal
champion of people who believe in
a "Square Deal" for the man
Lower down as well as Higher
up A champion of the masses
and not the tool of the protected,
and priveleged classes.
We voted the Progressive ticket
because we believe in a true
democracy, which means a
"Government of the people, by the
people, for the people" We give
up nothing in our adherence to
the fundamental principles, that
were dominant and adopted, and
won, by the republican party, in
the civil war.
We claim these as common
Droperty, achieved at the cost of
the best blood ot the Nation shed
by those on both sides of the
conflict.
We assume to go a step many
steps, further in National affairs,
and assert that the toiling millions
male, and female do not receive
a just recompense as reward, for
producing the wealth of the Nation
wherein the favored classes pro
tected by discrimination in legisla
tion and administration rtvei.
My fellow citizens who stand
identified as you and I stand, this,
is ihc one reason why we voted
as we did. You and J can give a
reason lor thfc hope that is in us,
good substantial reasons why we
voted the progressive ticket, and
why we shall continue to vote it at
every opportunity offered to us.
One amonjr the chief reasons
why we vote as we do, is because
of the "Steam Roller" adopted in
the district, State and National
Convention that nominated presi
dent Taft. In contrast with that
convention we point -with pride
to that orderly body with proceed
ings saia to nave oeen more jiKe
a "prayer meeting than a con
vention ' that nominated The a
dqre RoQsevelt.
Finally we feel proud of our
achievement in smashing the
political machine that directed and
propelled the steam roller heie
and elsewhere, but we leel
speqially honored in being identified
with over lour millions of voters
in the great republican States ot
the union who glory in the ap
pellation of "Bull Moosers".
In conclusion let us assure
those who want office that these
lines were not dictated, suggested
nor authorized by any, secretary
or chairman, pf a,ny poetical party
1104 wjuten by an. aspirant for any
office but simply our answer to
those who suggest that we voted
just because, we wanted to, or as
though we had no special reasons,
for so doing. We suggest that
none of us commit ourselves to
any man of any organi7ation till
we know what we are driving at.
