A Farmers Institute.
Farmers, if we are to have a
Farmers Institute here this year
something must be done and that
at once as soon the dates will all
be taken. Don't wait for some one
else to take up the work but do so
yourself. Last year the Democrat
handled all the preliminaries. This
year we want you to have your say.
If you want the Institute, the Dem
ocrat will gladly do all it can toward
making it a success. If you do not
want a meeting this year all you
have to do is to remain quiet and
the meeting will not be forced on
you. The meeting- last year was a
successful one and we believe much
good for the cause of farming was
accomplished. What do you say.
The question is now up to you, Mr.

THESE TWO PICTURES SHOW EXACTLY THE CONDITION THAT WILL EXIST
THE SINGLE TAX NOVEMBER 5.
IF MISSOURI ADOPTS
Under Single Tax taxing only land and franchises
the millionaire's bonds, stocks, money, notes and mort
gages will go free. His mansion will not be taxed a cent,
bis office building will go free, as will his automobiles
and everything else he owns except the ground he may
happen to possess.
The man who makes his living out of a farm or gar
den will be taxed for every Inch of it and taxed heavily,
tor the land will have to absorb the extra burden now
carried by personal property. Does that look fair?
The Single Taxers propose to saddle that kind of a
law on Missouri at the election Nov. ,5. If you are against
it vote "No" on the constitutional amendment and scratch
"Yes." , . , ,. ., .,'
Interesting News Concerning the
A Boost for Telephone Girls.
If a man is really looking for a
wife instead of a social butterfly,
an heiress or a chorus girl, we
heartily recommend for his consid
eration a telephone girl. For even
temper, patience, promptness and
meekness, telephone girls have the
world beaten. They are girls with
practical ideas and common sense;
they are girls who will help you
save your money and make you an
all-round housewife. We have never
seen one that wasn't neat and clean,
and they would very probably be
the most orderly housekeepers you
could get. And one of their great
est virtues is their ability to con
trol their tongues. They are accus
tomed to being quarreled at and :
bemeaned, yet they are not moved
to an outburst thereby. We know
they are sometimes imposed upon
and are seldom rated at their true
worth. If you are in need of a
good wife, get a telephone girl.
