A TIMELY LETTER.
Prof. Pryor Endorsed; Better
School Equipment Wanted.
Kev. Jos. II. Harvey, rector of
St, Paul's church of this city, has
vritteii Prof. Herbert Pryor, su
perintendent of the Mexico
g,.iools, the following timely let
My Dear Mr. Pryor: I am much
interested in the changes that you
re advocating in our pnnnc
g,,ools. They are good schools
now, hut schools are not like
Egyptian inummieB which were
as (food 2,.r)00 years ago as they
arc now; schools are live things,
in,, I should grow to meet the de
niiiiuls made upon them. The
gclionl room should grow to fit the
size of the enrollment of pupils;
tlie equipment should grow to as
sist in the education of the pupil.
'e need new equipment from
time to time; we need additions
to tlie huildings, sometimes new
buildings once in a while.
We cannot do as the farmer
who, on seeing a giraffe for the
fust time, examined the beast
carefully and said, "Aw, there
ain't no such a animal." We must
fare the facts and deal with facts.
We cannot ignore them or deal
with them in a half hearted way.
"The riches of a nation consist
not in mines, buildings, com
merce, nor industries, but in its
guns and daughters," and the bet
ter the education that they re
ceive, the better and richer will
the country be. Let "x" equal
the natural resources of the state;
let "y" equal the health and en
terprise of its people, and let "z"
dUHl what Tit's education. If
"z" is equal to "one," the state
will not he so well off as it would,
if "z" were equal to two, five, or
Victor Hugo says: "When you
open a school, you close a prison."
It is the ripht of every child in the
state to have a good education,
and it is the duty of every parent
and taxpayer to see that the child
pots it. The child should be
taught to work and play, and to
study and think, llody, soul, and
spirit should be developed so that
the child may become self-respecting,
and efficient. The public school is
u factor in making such charac
ters. The child should have three
great aids for fighting life's bat
tle: Accuracy, He sure you are
right and then go ahead; appre
ciation, the proper valuation of
everything and everybody with
which and with whom lie or she
comes in contact ; assurance, not
only be sure, but doubly sure.
i lay groumts and games, as
well as mental work for the child
occupy much thought of school
boards of our larger cities , and
our smaller cities are wearing
hoots much larger than cities the
same size did in years gone by.
Men in seven-league boots must
take seven-league strides.
The "booster spirit" is rife in
Mexico, why not put it to work in
good cause, for surely it is a
good cause, for it concerns the
training of those precious things
of whom the Master said. "Who
so shall receive one such little
child in My name, receiveth Me.
Kut whoso shall offend one of
these little ones which believe in

Let Me Show You
You inny huve questioned
some of the statements you
Imve heard about the wonder
ful crop yields obtained by
Wyoming fanners partic
ularly those in the Biff Horn
Basin, but if you will visit that
country and talk with some of
the tanners from Illinois, Iowa
and Missouri who have settled
there, you will r adily under
stand why they feel so optimis
A former Iowa man recently
wrote me as follows:
"I believe there is no better
loeat on iu the West than just
where I am, and I heartily ad
vise my friend to look over the

that were more than satisfac
tory from quite an area which
I truck fanned, in spite of the
fact that this was the tiist year
the land had been cultivated.''
What this man has done is
not at all unusual." There is
no good reason why you can't
do it too, provided yen get your
place j ticked out bcloic tlie
good land is taken up.

Vinson Stands For a Principle
Will You Stand By Him?
Woodrow YVilsun is a vastly different order of man than you find among the ranks of many eood men in
practical political life.
Woodro .v Wilion is not among the great majority of politicians and business men, otherwise estimable
characters, who believe that the end justifies the meant, who are honest in a commercial or political sense.
The candidate of the progressive voten of the country not only does not believe in the doctrine of
"anything to win," hut he insists on plain old fashioned honesty in every detail of his campaign.
Woodrow Wilson proposes to win on the merits of his candidacy and platform or not at all.
"Clean hands or no fiht" is Wilson's ultimatum to his supporters throughout the country.
No Tainted Money For Wilson
Not a dollar of questionable money wiil be -spent to elect Woodrow Wilson.
The Democrarc National Committee is heart and soul in accord wiih the candidate's views.
And the corrupting influences, with no poikical faith, casting about t win a foothold in the new govern
ment with bribes of ill-ijotten gains, have despaired of reaching Wilson or his campaigners.
They have gone to the enemy, whoever that enemy may be. It is a matter of common knowledge that
the "Interests" are using all their political fundtoto defeat Wilson.
This makes it your fight.
What the American People Need to Know
The people have constantly made the mistake of believing that this is a money-ridden nation.
Such is only the case insofar as the People fail to get together and so permit the few to control the dishonest
representatives they, by mistake, elect to office.
The actual money power of the People is still jreater than that of the Interests.
The Progressive People of the country, if they get together, can buy and sell the Corrupting Influencci
and destroy their financial power.
So Woodrow Wilson and his managers believe that not only is it the only clean method but the most
practical method for the Progressive People of the country to supply the W.iodr.jw Wilson Campaign Fund.
The People to Fight With THEIR Dollars
This year a popular president is to be elected with- the People's rr. ney.
The Woodrow Wilson Campaign Fund is to be collected from the ra: k and file of the Piogi e.siv Voicr:
of the country.
The bilk of the Democratic National Committee are to be paid, not with the thousands of the lniere.su,
but with the individual dollars of the earnest, eager voters who desire clea i, efficient government ami wh-i are-
wutiiv' to neip wuson as ne wants to be helped
Money thus needed is not spent in imoroaer
Interest nre disbursed'
but we have to tell the voters of
We have to ti ll tlii-m what lie stands for. We have to point out to them the import-tit plank- in his platform. All i'
means that to h.'ld up our end we will be obliged to spend at much money as those who uppus-- :v
This means that every man or woman vrtio believes in Wilson should be wil!i;m l contribute to c.iure.
Let the supporters of Wilson help us to spread the Wilson gospel to the four winds.
Let the Progressive Voters battle this year with their pock.etbot.ks as well as their ballots.
We Solicit Popular Subscriptions Can You Give From $! to $2 0
Of course, you can and you are tflad to support the cause i" this way.
Practically every voter can afford to give $1 to aid the "Wi!mn Campaign. A great many can tlvn Sa. A b'1
many can give ti. And there are lots and tots of progressive vuSevs who will be efiger to donate from ilJ tu
fUir.se are the kind of contributions we want.
Ai tl w will be proud to receive from thousands who can onlyaft rd tt, their tl contributions. We want tn hen
from eveiy man who has a dollar to give. '
Tins year the man with the dollar roust defeat the government trai.'cer who spends his thousands.
Get Club. Subscriptions
If you know many Wilson men, if you work am acne many Wilson men, herd a list with your name and money
get the others to join you with their subscriptions.
Then send jour list with the money to C. R. Cflane, Vice Chairman, Finance Committee, Democratic Nation"
Committee, 900 Michigan Avenue, Chicago, Illinois. '
No loyal Wilson man can do more than this to assure Wilson's victory at the polls in November.

Audrain Man's Account.
Hush Hill, Mo.. Oct. 15.
1 Those of this vicinity who at
Kditor Message: To keep j tended the Illinois State Fair
faith with my friends I herewith were Mr. and Mrs. Frank (teiffer,
wish to give as full account of my j John, Charlie and William PJum
xisit. us briefly as consistent, to I nnd I'dll Wilson and son, Carl,
the State meeting of the Antij Miss Hey Myars is spending a
Horse-Thief Association which few days in Mexico,
convened in Mom-It. Mo., Tin's

dale school bouse, this neighbor
hood. Hon. I. Menu ue! Monelt is
state president, lie is as good a
parliamentarian as I ever saw
preside at a meeting anywhere,
lie is otherwise a very able man.
.Following is a notation or two I
took from him :
; "Laws were m.'de to restrain
ami punish the wicked; the wise
i.uul good do not need them as a
j guide but only as a shield against
rapine and wrong They can live
'civilly anil orderly thontrh there
were no law in 1 1 - w orld, yet
b'Ws are universal ; all beings
have their laws; the material
world has its laws; superior in
itclligenee has its laws; the beasts
I have their laws, and man his laws.
! "'Forewarned is forearmed.'
The A. II. T. A. works out its own
downfall, strange to put it, and
jyet she is stronger tn evervwav
than ever before."
The last quotation civen is ex
plained with the next :
"As crime is suppressed nnd
organized criminals are brought
to justice or routed conditions
arise that cause the dwarfing of
the local order.
"Protection will always be
needed, for humanity is not infal
lible. The benefit a communi
ty derives from having n live A.
II. T. A. is incalculable."
