We do not need to borrow
Our trouble from tomorrow;
We'll find enough to worry us before
we're through today;
We waste our time in fretting
O'er whats' to come, forgetting
The goodness and the gladness that
are rich along the way.
We do not need to ponder
On what we left back yonder-
Back yonder on the blotted pages
that tells of yesterday;
We should recall the gladness,
And not bring up the sadness.
But let the gloom go to the dark
and let the sunshine stay.
This casting up of trouble
Will only make it double-
Will only wilt the flowers that are
sweet along the road.
This thing of being tearful
Instead of waxing cheerful
Because of what has gone, will only
add unto our load.
So, what's the use to borrow
Our trouble from tomorrow,
Or clutch the sorrows that we
thought were ours on yesterday?
Today will have its fretting,
But let us go, forgetting.
And joy will overtake us while we
walk along the way.

and Jewelry repaired at Bebb's
Jewelry Store. All work guaranteed.

Not to Be Proud Of
The Republicans are in bad shape
in their campaign they can't
"point with pride" to President Taft

Let Facts Speak.
The Re;.".:l;iean state platform
aid: "We favor a stute board of
numeration." Do They? Let the
acts speak. Governor Hadley ve
toed the appropriation passed by
the Democratic legislature for the
state board of immigration. Is that
the way the Republicans mean to
favor" a state board of immigra
tion? Henry County Democrat.
Aldrich Knew the Ground.
A few years ago when Senator
Aldrich stated that the government
should be operated on $300,000,000
a year less than it was then taking
there was consternation in the Re
publican ranka, and the Republican
eaders tried to get him to retract
the statement But Aldrich was
gameiiand stood firm. With a
Democratic Congress at the wheel
a slashing process has been going
on, and it is announced from Wash
ington the expenses of the ensuing
year will be $300,000,000 less than
when Aldrich spoke. Aldrich was
a wise guy and knew his ground.
What Can They Do About It?
In the Republican national con
vention at Chicago three hundred
delagates set stolidly in their seats
and refused to participate in the
nomination of President Taft. Taft
because they knew, they charged
and they proved that his nomina
tion was procured by theft and
fraud. Twenty of these delegates
were from Missouri. What are
they going to do about it? Sit
around and poke fun at the Bull
Moosers? That doesn't meet the
issue. There is no middle ground.
The Republican state candidates
have endorsed that fraud. They
have done so in their platform. And
now this to the Missouri tax-payer

money? Atchison County Mail. ,
Has a Poor Memory.
A Bull Mooser declared the other
day that he would vote for Roose
velt in order to avert another Cleve
land panic. Poor, deluded partisan.
He has evidently forgotten the
Roosevelt panic of 1907, which was
far more disastrous to the commer
cial world than the panic of 1893,
During the panic of 1893 you could
get some money from the banks,
but during the panic of 1907 the
banks refused to pay over to depos
itors their monoy. As near home
as St. Joseph shinplaster money
was issued in 1907 to tide over the
panic under Roosevelt. Be consist
ant in your political argument be
cause everybody has not forgotten
the history of panics under the dif
ferent administrations in this coun
try. Worth County Times.

The Youth's Companion For 1913.
The Youth's Companion appeals
to every interest of family life,
from housekeeping to athletics. It
begins with stories of youthful vim
and vigor, with articles which dis
close the secrets of successful play
in the great games, with charming
tales of ,'ife at the girls' college. But
The Companion does not surrender
these readers when they have enter
ed the more serious paths of life.
Mothers will welcome the page for
little children and the weekly doc
tor's article. Fathers will find the
important news of the day as it is,
and not as it is rumored to be. The
entire household will appreciatejthe
sketches which touch gently on
common foibles or caricature elec
tricity. In short, for less than four
cents a week The Companion brings
into the home clean entertainment.
