Koosevelt, himself, says all sorts
of mean things of Taft whom he
made 1'resident, and of whom
less than two years ago, he said,
"he is able, upright anil distin
guished, and entitled to the
thanks of the American people
for the great work he is doing."
Hiram Johnson, Koosevelt's run
ning mate, says that Taft is "the
:uost humiliating character in all
The Taft speakers also engage
in vilification, and if Senator
Bradley and others omit to say
anything that is severe and de
rogatory of Teddy it is only be
cause they forget. Senator Brad
ley speaks of him as an "arrant
demagogue,' 'the greatest bos9in
the world, masquerading in ,the
clothes of Billy Bryau, which are
too big for hiin," andiu order to
win is "plunging the gleaming
dagger of hate and malice into
his political mother's breastj"

In 1890 when the goldbug wjng
of the Democratic party Hew a
way on a little jaunt, the Repub
licans patted them on the back

boys, lending them aid and en
uuiragement on every hand.
Now that the g. o. p. has had a
split in their party, do Demo
crats lend aid to the rebels. No,
they are too fair minded and are
disposed to show duo sympathy
and respect- to even their bitter
est enemies. The Times has full
respect for all followers of the
great "I am'' but are inclined to
look upon him with the same dis

Prosperity in Powell county
i.ieans prosperity on the farm,
prosperity on the farm means the
raising of what we muBt consume
( u the farm, this means that in
( no instance at least, our farmers
are making u great mistake in
not raising more wheat. It is
i ot hard on the land, and if rais
ed in suflieient quantities as it
can bo raised, it means the sav
ing of thousands of dollars every
year that now leave the county
for Hour. Wheat sowing time is
now here, Mr. Farmer get busy.
Campaign speeches are not so
frequent in Clay City as usual
on Presfdeutiul years. But then
what's the use, it's all one way
this time. So much so, iu fact
that it is lacking in interest and
enthusiasm on all sides as com
pared with former campaigns.
Automobile riding may be a lit

Before n Western aucience the
other day, Colonel Roosevelt in
dignantly refuted the charge that
ho desired to be king, convincing
even the few skeptics present,
by pointing out that kings don't
have much power.
The Colonel will be third iu
the race, which would seem quite
appropriate for a man who is
running for a third term at the
hoad of a third party.
Waman's sulFrago is on the
boom, and a Kansas Oity judge
has just ruled that a wife has a
right to he to her husband.
These efforts to ascertian the
precise location of Armageddon
are useless. The spot moves
with the Colonel.
Unlike most workers, the mos
quito presents his bill before he
does the job.
There is no silent partner in the
firm of Roosevelt and Johnson.
