THIRD TERM IDEA

"if we tolcra'o tho Idea that wo

.more than counterbalance the harm
that may bo done, wo shall soon be
adrift without chart or compass. Then
It Is that 'tho man on horseback' will
bo duo -o nrrlte.
"Wo have been singularly fortunate
In always having a patriotic, llberty

AN OBJECT LESSON.
