A prominent Democratic work- j
er was heard to say that the great- j
est difficulty the party had in its
campaign is the fact that farm,
products are so high. It is, he
Kays, hard P convince the farmer!
that the Republican party is ruin- j
inp the fanner when he is petting j
more for his produce, than ever j
When the farmer hears a Dem
ocratic orator talking about the
terrible poverty of the poor
American farmer on account of
the Republicans, he merely looks
at him and then prins.
With hops from 5 to C cents,
cattle 3 to 5 cents, wheat from bO
to 90 cents, corn from 00 to K)
cents, epps and poultry high, etc
it :s hard to make the farmer see
where the government under
Republican Administration is
hurting him, or where the Demo
cratic party could help him.
The American farmer believes
in the Republican party.
