This Woman Was Sensible.
One New York woman after
studying the big tariff exhibit in
New York City for an hour and re
alizing how the tariff robbed her
home at every turn, indignantly de
clared, "I don't know much about
politics, but I'm going right home
to my husband, who is a Republi
can, and tell him he must vote for
Wilson or the babies and I will go
on strike. Henry County Democrat.
From a Republican Source.
It is gratifying to note that the
newly elected governor of Maine re
fused to rest under the insulting
statement that he got the support
of the real Republicans of his state
under false pretenses even if the
statement did come from one who
carries the banner, "Thou shalt not
steal." Kansas City Journal.
We Shall See What We Shall See
The regular Republican organiza
tion is determined to do a little ante-election
housecleaning, and has
begun by ousting every member of
the National Committee who re
fused to pledge fealty to Taft. Per

around to Governor Hadley, then
we shall see what we shall see.

When Champ Came Home.
Champ Clark was given one of
the biggest demonstrations of love
and loyalty ever extended a public
man at his home coming at Bowl

decorated from end to end and
there were large delegations present
from neighboring towns, while the
farmers for miles around came in
carriages and autos to swell the
procession. Hundreds of floats and
vehicles, gayly decorated with flags
and bunting, formed a procession
more than a mile long and trav
ersed all the principal streets,
shouting and cheering. Platte
Read This and Reflect.
People have almost forgotten the
charges made against Ballinger, but
the most important of them was set

Let Me Show
You may have questioned some i
of the statements you have heard
about the wonderful crop yields ob
tained by Wyoming farmers par
ticularly those in the Big Horn Ba
sin -but if you will visit the coun
try and talk with some of the farm
ers from Illinois, Iowa and Mis
souri who have settled there, you
will readily understand why they
feel so optimistic.
A former Iowa man recently
wrote me as follows:
"I believe there is no better loca
tion in the west than just where I
am, and I heartily advise my
friends to look over the fine irrigat
ed land that is open to entry on
Shell Creek Tract, if they are inter
ested in acquiring a home in a pro
gressive, rapidly developing coun
try. I have planted an apple or- i
chard on part of my land and shall
enlarge it considerably this next
spring; during this past season I re
ceived returns that were more than
satisfactory from quite an area
which I truck farmed, in spite of
the fact that this was the first 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, pro
vided you get your place picked out
before all the good land is taken
In order to make it easy for you
to look the Basin over without too
much expense, the Burlington Route
will run special Homeseekers' Ex
cursion's from Omaha on October

go with me and see for yourself

Oldest Railroad Doomed.
The Rio Grande Rail ad, the old

United States, is being dismantled,

in 1862, went out of service today,
The line is 22 1-2 miles long run
