Where you are needed most
is where you will make most
Your opportunity is in Texas where soil,
.climate and natural conditions are all
favorable. It is not an uncommon thing
for a farmer in Texas to pay for his farm
in one year. This could only be done where
land is fertile and inexpensive; crops big
and prices good.
Now is the time to make a trip to Texas
and see just where your opportunity lies.
On the First and Third
Tuesdays of each month
excursion tickets are sold via The Katy at especially low
rates with privileges of stop overs. Such a ticket enables
you to visit a large section of the Southwest and to see for
yourself the prosperous condition of the entire section.
Will you go now, or wait longer until land prices advance
to the top notch and the opportunities are less attractive.
Probably I can help you decide at any rnto write me
for literature and further information. Address

"You feel like sorting out and
tying together the memories of this
trip and keeping thein sepeiatej
from all other trips." A woman
recently said this after a pleasant
experience on a Burlington Route
"Personally Conducted" excursion
party to California. She traveled
alone, but met many agreeable peo
ple on the car, which was in charge
of a special conductor. This good
natured official was a well inform
ed, courteous man who who went
nil the way through with the party,
looking after everyone's comfort
and attending to all the little de
tails of the trip. Thus a woman or
child in one of these parties can
travel with perfect safety and free
dom from care.
If you would like to know more
about the Burlington's comfortable,
popular and inexpensive personally
conducted excursions to California,
through scenic Colorado and Salt
Lake City, please write me a pos
tal and I'll be glad to send your
copy of our illustrated folder, de
scribing the trip in detail, the
scenery, the choice of routes, telling
all about how to join one of these
parties and containing one of the
best maps of California ever pub
lished. J. L. Lyon, Ticket Agent,

On Tuesday, March 23, 190P, Governor Hadley. who had then
been Governor but little more than two months, introduced a resolu
tion (see pages 31-3:5 Record State Board of Equalization for iyo9)
providing that every farm and city home in tiiis State should be
assessed at its actual cash value, thus trebl'n',' the assessments
throughout the State. Governor lladley voted FOR that resolution,
and it was DEFEATED by the votes of Attorney-General Major,
Secretary of State Roach, and State Auditor Gordon tsee page 33
Record State Board of Equalization for l'JO'J).
This is the RECORD showing Hadley's attempt to TREBLE
THE TAXES, and showing how the scheme was killed by Major,
Roach and Gordon.
Now, what lines the Republican party say? Read this, from the
Republican platform :
"We pledge to the people of Missouri in the nomination and
election of our standard bearer, julm C. McKinley. ti.e ;.:ue high
degree of faithful service in the performance of his olTicial duties as
exemplifies the administration of Herbert S. lladley, and a continua
tion of these policies," etc.
Mr. Republican Tax-l'ayer, where does this hit YOU?
In a public statement several mouths ago Attorney-General
Major, who was the first candidate for Governor to declare against
the Single Tax, said:
"I am opposed to the Single Tax because I am opposed to heap
ing any further burdens upon the overburdened farm and home
owners of this State; and I am oppoted to the trebling of the State
assessments because the trebling of the assessments upon Missouri
farms and homes would have meant the trebling of the taxes upon
Missouri farmers and householders throughout the State, when as
a matter of fact the State already has a1 the revenue it needs, and
I have always believed that UNNECESSARY TAXATION IS
UNJUST TAXATION." .;
" Let the records speak. The issues are clearly drawn. Major for
Governor, Roach for Scretary of State and Gordon for Auditor, are
candidates on the Democratic ticket. If elected, they will remain on
the State Board of Equalization and will constitute a majority of
that Board. Republicans as well as Democrats should vote tor them.
PUT TRIED MEN ON GUARD. Take no chances.
