Got Something for Nothing.
When a person gets something
for nothing, said something usually
contains a joker, or has a string at
tached to it. For instance, a cer
tain preacher received from a pat
ent medicine company an offer to
provide his church with song books
free of charge. It was explained
that there would be a few ads in
the front of the books, but that
'thp nilo umiilfl not hp nfTi'Tiivp tn
j the members of the congregation,
(since the books were being secured
: for nothing. The preacher gave
the order and the books arrived. He
found the ads to be mildly worded
and decided to use the books. He
explained from the pulpit how the
books had been secured, and an
nounced that they would sing No.

when, on reaching the second verse,
they found themselves singing,
"Hark, the heavenly angels sing,
Johnson's pills are just the thing:
Angelic voices meek and mild
two for man and one for child."
Poll Tax is now due and I am
ready for you to pay same. Please
pay at once.
PERRY C. GREEN,
10-10 Street Commissioner.
Oh, Charles Adolphus, go your
way. and paint the town from day
to day. until you've had your fill;
but every foolish act, gadzooks. is
charged against you in the books,
'and you must pay the bill. One
thing is sure as death or tax, which
is that retribution whacks each err
ing mortal jay; long years may pass
already yet, before you're called to
pay the debt, but some time you
must pay. Go, rake in wealth with
greedy paws, and violate all moral
laws, and cheat and swindle still;
but some day maybe when you're
old, and love seems better far than
gold you'll have to pay the bill.
Oh, loafer, loaf the hours away, and
waste the golden summer day, re
fuse to toil or till! When winter
comes and workers rest in cozy
homes, of ease possessed, you'll
have to pay the bill! Oh, maidens,
radiant and fair, who use peroxide
on your hair, and kalsomine your
cheeks; who twist your systems all
awry until the gods look down and
sigh, "Oh, pipe the dizzy freaks!"
With all your paint and furbelows,
and shoes that crush your aching
toes, you're surely out to kill; but
when the glow of youth is past, and
age comes creeping on at last, you'll
have to pay the bill. Each foolish
action that we do, each wicked
course that we pursue, we settle for
some day; the captain's office open
stands, where we must face this
world's demands, and some time
we must pay. Walt Mason.
Hon. W. H. Wallace discussed the
single tax question at the opera

audience was present thus showing
that our people are interested and
it is well that they should be as
this question is one of vital import
ance to Missouri and by all means
should be defeated, It will take
work to do this. Do your part.
Mr. Wallace's talks all over the
state will do much toward causing
the people to scratch Yes and vote
NO as they should. Talk to your
neighbor. Every one who is oppos
ed to this so-called equitable tax
should keep busy until the polls
close on the evening of November

The Democratic party gives no
aid to monopolists and can there
fore expect no aid from them . The
people who profit by privilege may
be expected to finance the party of
privilege. That is why the Repub
lican candidates are always bounti
fully supplied with money for cam
paign expenses, while the Demo
cratic candidates, who are making
the fight for the people, are often
defeated simply becauss they lack
the necessary funds with which to
print to publish and mail the facts
to the people. The common people
should learn to guard the public in
terest just as the privilege mongers
guard and defend the interests of
privilege. Your little mite will
help. Mail a dollar tpday to the

when millions in land grants and
railroad properties were bartered
away for a song. There must be
an end to all this. And the surest i
way to end it is for each voter whor
send a cash contribution to the

government is a good investment
as a business proposition. It takes
money to fight craft and graft and

We are always interested in matters of civic betterment and
we believe most of our customers are, too.
Nothing adds more to the attractiveness of a city than well
painted buildings and clean streets and yards:
Why not get together and decide on a clean-up-day? Our town
beautiful will then be a more attractive and healthy place to live in
No matter what you wish to paint, protect or finish, we have
the latest and best material to do with. It is the best sort of econ
omy to use the most suitable materials for work of this character.
We will add further to the economy by furnishing these materials
at lowest possible cost.
Much of the real hard labor of house-cleaning may be avoided
if such helps as our stock affords are used. Borax, Ammonia, Sal
Soda, Chamois, Sponges, etc. cost too little to be without when they
aid so much. More satisfactory results are obtained, too, when
they are used.
Don't forget disinfectants when you start the fall cleaning and
renovating. A little on floors, wopdwork, etc., will destroy
germs, and make your work more thorough.
We also call your attention to our new and artistic line of
FALL WALL PAPERS. A good time to paper while every
thing is torn up for house-cleaning.
