CRIME EVER TOLD!
Gem Thursday, Oct. 31.
Record of Garnier's criminal career. Found on his
body after he and Bonnat were slain by soldiers and
police. Tells the thrilling story of operations of his band
of robbers and murderers. Became an Anarchist when
his superheated imaginations led him to believe that
society would give him no chance. Profits from his mis
deeds were small and soon were squandered. Last days
so exciting he could not continue his story. There is a
splendid lesson in this picture.
This story covered an en

of Sunday, August 11.

necessary to do any work. Fellow
Democrats, if we are to win in No

done The prospect is bright and
if we work we can win. Do not
think we can win without more
money with which to make the
fight for human rights. Have you
done your part? If not do so at

covers a ground area of 420x220
feet The wings to the right and
left of the dome are to be 88 feet in
height, containing three stories and
a basement with a sub-basement
underneath the entire structure.
To the south, facing the main en
trance, will be the Supreme Court
building, and to the north, the Mis

There will be minor entrances from
the east and west.
In designing the structure partic

ventilation and sanitary arrange
ments, and every detuil the struct

The design selected calls for a
smaller building than any of the
others, yet with its compactness it
provides for more apartments and
the interior is better arranged.
A driveway underneath the build

Columbia, Mo , s'aysf "I" regard the j
Single Tax as the most iniquitous
piece of foolishness ever concocted, j
Its passage would put the land i
owner forever in the hands of the ;
high pirates of finance; it would
mean industrial servitude so far as !
the farmer is concerned. Those
that are advocating the Single Tax
under the name of the Equitable
Tax League possess no sense of hu

danger in it from every standpoint."
