An effort will be made by the people
who lielieve in "direct legislation" to
secure legislation favorable to their
wt theory. They want a constitu
tional amendment providing that
when ten per cent, (or any per cent,
agreed upon) of the people petition
that a certain measure or idea be
made a law, that an election shall be
called, and if the majority of the
people vote "yes." then there is a
new law. Anil also that all measures
passed by the legislature are not laws
until a majority of the people vote
"yes." They have headquarters in Jef
ferson City, and every member of the
legislature has received a number of
their circular letters explaining the
advantage of the system.
The veterinary surgeons also want
legislation. There are entirely too
many horse doctors in the country to
suit the fellows who have attended
veterinary schools, and studied botts,
glanders, wind-colic, etc., and they
want a law that will prohibit anyone

The Great Woman's Remedy for Woman's Ills,
No other medicine in the world has received such widespread
and unqualified endorsement

his store purposely to buy Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound,

whether you get well or not, so long as he can make a little more
money out of your sickness. If he wished you well he would
without hesitation hand you the medicine you ask for, and which he
