Crowds are Attracted.
The following nre a few ol the
letters from citizens and voters of
the county living where Republican
speakings have been held showing
how the people nre interested nnd
how they nre turning out in large
numbers wh erever Republican
spenkings are billed. One of these
speakings was held at Callahan
Schoolhoune Inst Friday night and
although there was little done in
the way of advertising it nnd de
spite the fact that the wentber was
very d:sngreeable, yet theie was a
large crowd out. The following
letter received this week from si
prominent citizen at that place
gives the fncts.
Oct. 21st, 1912.
Editor Mountain Advocate,
We had a speaking up here last
Friday night nnd we vnnt the peo
pie to know about it. We had
another one a while back and we
want the people to know about
that one too. The first speaking
we hud was a Uull Mooe speaking
and there was not over a dozen
people out to hear it most of them
were Republicans a .d just wanted
to see what they had to say. Hut
this was not the kind of crowd
that was out to hear the Republi
can sptcches. There was more than
sixty people at the last Speaking
and they heard one ol the best
speeches ever turned loose in Knox
County. The Bull Moostrs told us
when they were here that thetc wes
no Republicans lelt. This might
be true in some places but here in
this precinct we are all going to
vote just like we always have. We
are going to stick it under the bog
Cabin and continue to have good
times just like we nre having now.
P. S. You can publish this letter if
you want to, lor we want the peo
ple to know about us here.
Anbther letter, from Flut Lick
tells about the speaking ut tlm t
place last Saturday night.
As you was absent from the
speaking here last Saturday I am
writing to tell you about it. Yc
had one of the biggest crowds at
the schoolhouse that night that has
ever turned out to a speaking. The
house was full and the yard around
the schoolhouse was lull, and it was
one of the best Republican crowns
we have cYcr had here. There were
some people here that hail been
wearing Uull Moose pins ami say
ing" that they were just as good Re
publicans us anybody and actually
thought they were, liut after some
ef .the speakers got through reading
' the law passed by the last legisla
ture aadtsfeowed them where the
were at aad how they were voting
themselves out ol the Republicun
party they saw things ditlerent.

not present at either of the above
mentioned speakings but he wns at
Elys and we do know that the
school house was full there Inst
Tuesday night nnd thnt it was
one of the most attentive speakings
we were ever present at. The chair
man who introduced tic spenkers
was one of the best citizens in the
County and was a man who had
always been for Roosevelt, even up
to a few days ago He, like a lot of
others did not understand the situ
ation nnd did not realize that
Roosevelt was trying to destroy
the Republican party but thought
he was running more ns nn Inde
pendent Rcpablican. He told the
people present why he was for the
Lug Cabin, how he had support
ed it for many years nnd the reason
why he was now for it. He was
one of those who went went through
the Clevlaud llnrdtimes with n
family of live to support nnd no em
ployment. He told how he was
out of work for more than a year
and how he at last got a few days
work loading some lumber to build
soup-houses. That is why he is a
Republican now nnd why he is
against nny mnn who tries to de
stroy the party that has brought
better times and hns given employ
ment to him nnd his family for the
past sixteen ears.
At every place where there have
been Republican speakings there has
been a large crowd and those who
have been saying that the Republi
can party in Knox County was a
"dead one" have only to attend
one of these gatherings to learn dif
Jt niny not be generally kno n to
farmers and others in Kentucky that
the Kentucky Agricultunl Experi

work has been planned nnd is now
Hearing completion. When our in
cubators and other appliances nre
established it will be one ot the
most complete in this country.
The Station hns already won a
reputation tor work ot tins sort

examined in the order in which they
To get fair tests it is necessary
that the sample be taken from a
bulk lot after a thorough mixing
of the seeds. Samples ot red clover
sapling clover, alsike clover, alfalfa,
orchard grass, English blue-grass
and rye grass should contain two
ounces each. Samples of Kentucky
blue-grass, Canada blue-grass, red
top and timothy should weigh one
ounce each. The samples should be
put in a stout paper envelope, not
in ordinary correspondence envelop

Whereas we the Republican Committee of Knox County

freedom, prosperity, the moral uplift of its people, and for the
protection and dignity of American labor, and
Whereas wo believe the continued prosperity of this
country depends upon the success of the Republican Party, and
Whereas some so-called Republicans who have held of
fice under this party for years, and who have now left the
party and formed the so-called Progressive Party are now
going over the County in company with Democratic henchmen .
and are undertaking to tell the
