Sam Jones, the evangelist, of
Cartersville, Ca., died in a sleep
ing car on the Kock Island rail
mid, near Perry, Ark., Monday
morning about 5 o'clock. He
was en route from Oklahoma
City, Okla., where he had been
holding a series of religious

two daughters, Mrs. Annie
Pyron and Miss Julia Jones, and
Rev. Walt. Holcomb, his colabor
er, were with him. He died in
Mr. Holcomb's arms. The party
was en route to Cartersville to

TATHER TO SON,
Letters of a Missouri farmer to
Written from Eureka Springs,
Ark , Where He Is On Ac
count of Illness.
Dear John: 'Yhat is so per
feet as a day in June?" asked a
poet long ago. You and I know
that in the Southwest, the land
where you were born and I have
so long lived, an autumn day is as
tilled with beauty and quite as
perfect as a day of the earlier
month. In fact, the autumn day
is better, just as fruit is better
than blossom. The autumn days
in the Ozarks are delightful.
Blue sky, bright sunlight, the
tinging of the leaves by the touch
of the frost. Your mother and I
walked far yesterday, for I am
much improved, and revelled in
the dreamy beauty of the haze
curtained hills. As the fall
brings ripening to the field and
orchard, so the autumn of life
brings a ripening of judgment
and the valuation of things of life
is set down by the hand of ex
perience. More value is attach
edtotho unseen and, the moral
side of things becomes of vast
importance. You have, of course,
noticed how in these latter years
morals and ethics are becoming
mixed with politics. We are no
longer voting simply to pile up a
larger pile of ballots than the
other fellows, but right and the
triumph of justice means more
than party name.
This brimrs me to your letter
and what you wrote Joe Tyhon
told you about DeAnnoiid and
Joe's argument for the re-election
el the Congressman. Now
Joe is a good lawyer and if I had
a title to perfect I hhould want
him to do the- work. I think he
is trying to perfect a title to a
seat in the next Congress for Do
Armond. You were impressed by the
fact that he voted for the rate
bill. Ju-.t remember, John, that
he has been in Congress sixteen
years, and a part of that time his
party had all legislative branches
of the government; did Mr. De
Armond ever introduce a bill
checking in any way the capacity
of a trust, railway, or otherwise?
I remember seeing little John
ny Hoover being dragged to
bchool by his father, the lad kick
ing and protesting, but he went
ti school. He did not deserve
uuy credit for attendance.
So when Theodore Uoosevolt,
t'io impersonation of the Amer
ican pimple, irrespective of par
ty, asked fur the patjsugo of u
rato till, no western waqvy.s:
man dared do otherwise than
vote for it, for when ho went to
his constituents for rcnomina
tion they would havo turned him
down. I am glad Mr. DcAr
mond voted for it, but it does
seem to me that a Congressman
in sympathy and harmony with
the source of that rate bill would
have clone more effectivo service
for the district, for thero was
much legislation we needed be
side the rate bill.
Ask Jim Tyson if he remem
bers old Jim Hartley's muskrat
hunt. Old Jim was down at the
blacksmith shop one day relating
a hunt he and his dog had been
engaged in. He said they had
started a muskrat from a nearly
dry creek and that they ran him
in the water and out, up the bank
and down, until finally the musk
rat climbed a tree. Hie listen
ers all laughed heartily and in
terrupted the story with the de
claration that a muskrat cannot
climb a tree. Very gravely old
Jim said, "This un did; he had
to." So our Congressman HAD
to vote for the rate bill.
Then Joe said that long ser
vice gave our representative
great prestige at the capitol. It
seems the question is, what ser
vice can he be to the district, not
what social prestige, not what
rank in his party he attains.
Contrast his sixteen years with
the one term of Shartell's brief
tenure. Mr. Atkeson is clean
and capable and there is no rea
son why he cannot equal the re
cord of Shartell.
I wonder if any part of Mr.
DeArmond's campaign will be
made on his record as a defender
of Jim Butler in his effort to gain
a seat in the House. Can any
right minded voter stamp his
approval upon the course of his
representative in trying to get
the admission of the leader of
the Butler Indians, with his ma
lodorous record as a ward healer,
a ballot corrupter, a part owner
of a low theatre, to membership
in a legislative body where Gar
field, Handall, Blaine and Crisp
had sat? I refuse to believe the
Democracy of our district ap
prove of this action.
Not long ago I heard Joe Tyson
speaking to a jury. He said a
man must be judged by his acts,
not his intentions, not his asso
ciates, not his promises. I watf
heartily in accord with his phi
losophy. In a great degree the
acts of a Congressman are the
acts of his district, for he is the
voice of the district. Our dis
trict should be represented by a
lifted, not a leaner. We should
have our part in the great
achievements of our, time. We
ought to help in the formation of
a navy that will produce peace in
American seas. We want to vote
yes" on the great policies of

pointed out by our President em
braces the grandest realization
of national plans the mind of man
can grasp. The Panama canal
and other waterways, regulated
railways, better public highways,
public buildings, the elimination
of graft, proper control of cor
porations, the furtherance ' of
world wide peace, the improve
ment of the soil and it's products,
greater care of life and health,
all working to the spiritual and
physical betterment of the in
creasing millions. Let's have a
hand in these mighty movements
by sending a representative who
is in harmony with these plans
of the administration.

The sch(K)l book trust, a gi

The State Sup er-in tend ent
is the re spons i bio head of that
branch of the state gov ern ment.
He is re-spons-i-ble because
the books are not cheaper.
The book trust has controlled
that office for the past six years.
