Missouri is beginning to make
a noise ia the business and in

much machinery and the hurry

An exchange through mistake
published an article to the effec t
that a certain man, a Democrat,
was craey and when they found
out it was the wroDg man, took

Democrats both individually'and

About this time next year the
candidates for party nomination
will be sweating under the pres

will pay little heed to the ther

Republican candidates will be
plentiful and the Democratic can

the death of his good father has
brought to his heart and his

princely gentleman, a good citi

a devoted and wise father, and
was justly proud of the distinct

It is to bo deeply rek'retted that
he could not live to see his gifted
son elevated to a still higher
place in tho service of the people.

A freak oil well was brought
in on the Ranson tract of land in
the Sour Lake field recently. It
is a gusher of the old type, but
it does not have a regular How.
It has eight outbreaks every
twenty-four hours, and at each
eruption it gushes just fifty bar
rel of oil. The period of activity
lasts only five minutes. The
well then suddenly subsides and
for four hours it is perfectly
quiet, not a sound escaping from
its surface opening. When the
time arrives for another eruption
the earth around the well sudden
ly begins to tremble, a loud sub
terranean roar is heard, and out
of the pipe spouts oil to a height
of more than 100 feet.
It's mighty hot to talk politics,
but the farmers who are now
toiling in the sun to reap wheat
for which they will get more than
a dollar a bushel are thinking of
the political conditions which
have niddo the farm more valua
ble because crops hum become
more valuable. Kuch farmers
do not noed to be told that the
best politics to talk about are the
politics of the great party which
has made prosderity and high
prices for tho products of thu
toiler a possibility and a reality
in a country where wheat sold
for fifty cents a bushel and
farm labor was the least reward
ed of any work done by Ameri
cans. The farmers have grown
weary of the isms of Hryanisia,
which cannot Le realized upon in
the open markets' They want
political policies which will keep
the flow of uionev toward the
farm instead of draining the
farm to keep up the banks and
the brokers of tho city.

The render of a newspaper
will readily ngn-i that it is noc
essary for a merclnnt, with any
pre tention to progrcssivs nes. to
advertise Yet this would not
bo true if it were not equally
true that it is necessary for the
render of tho newspaper, if he
or she have any pretentions to
progressiveness, to read and an
swer tho ads.
These are twin facts, twin nee
essities. Whatever is of enough
importance for the merchant to
pay for the privilege of saying
is of too much importance for
the reader to overlook. And
just as advertising is the way of
the progressive store, so is the
reading of advertising tho way
of the progressive person.
.Measure your progrcssiveness
by this standard and you will not
go far wrong.
The advertised goods are usu
ally cheaper, sold at less urofit
to draw trade, and the ad reader
gets the savings.
It is the saved that counts.

Saturday night, and the week's
work done, and the Old Man home
with a bunch of mon! You see
him sit on the cottage porch, and
ho puffs away at a five cent torch,
while the good wife sings at her
evening chores, and the children
gambol around out doors. The
Old Man sits on his work day
hat, and he doesn't envy the
plutocrat; his debts are paid and
he owns his place, and he'll look
a king in the blooming face; his
hands are bard with brick and
loam, but his heart is soft with
the love ot home! Satu rday niaht,
and it's time for bed! And the
kids come in with a buoyant
tread; and they hush their noise
at the mother's look, as she slow
ly opens a heavy book, and reads
the tale of the stormy sea, and
the voice that quieted Galileo.
Then away to bed and the cairn
repose that only honesty ever
kuows. Saturday night, and the
world is st ill, and, and it's only
the erring one who finds things
ill; there is sweet content and a
sweeter lest, where a good heart
beats in a brave man's breast.

This fact has been proven time

disastrous lires which might
