How Your Money Will Be Spent
Woodrow Wilson, our standard bearer, has never bad
the tune or disposition to talk about himself.
lie has never used spectacular methods to place bimicll
in the apctlight.
His greatest work has been done withoufoitenUtloa, in
the most expeditious, dignified manner.
The w-re.it mass of voters do not know what really
gre.it in.in Wilsnn is. They do not know eB be baa done.
They do not understand all the features of his platform.
We must tell tliein.
To educate this great nation of voters, especially the
clear thinking Independent Democrats, Republicans end
Progressives who choose their leader on his merits, means
the expenditure of a vast amount of money.
We propose to use your dollars in just this way
judiciously, and without a penny frittered away for an UB
We know you have confidence we will do this tbtvg and

Men feel differently about different

wise than perfectly satisfied when he
buys a bill of lumber from us. He
may know nothing about the grade
of lumber, but he does know that he
gets exactly what he buys; and sees
it before he buys and pays for it-big
item, isn't it? Should a mistake
occur it is cheerfully corrected. Our
grades are right and our prices are
right. There is no bill too large for
us to handle and none too small to
receive our most careful attention.
Our motto is, "A satisfied cus

In Popular Government all the people have tnflaence,
because their executives and legislators d not date to
thwart the expressed will oi the people
Representative Government, as ever, this-year Is being
supported by the money oi the Interests, it Is being spent
lavishly lo give tne voters a wrong iroprwiswa 01 wvsgn.
