The Morgan County Life Insurance
Association is getting many new mem
bers and is well worthy the consider
ation of every citizen of the county.
No one can get in outside the county
and with the good health that is prov
erbial, of Morgan county, the assess

Every one should carry some insuran

safe. E. A. Crewson is President
and E. W. Curtis Secretary.
The most of Moigan county's dis
plays at the state fair got off Tuesday

counties may have as good coru,

; . A Saloon Petition.
i Report says there is a new petition
;for a saloon license being circulated.
I Vou don't want to license some
ibodv to commit murder? That's
what the old saloons did.
Vou don't want to rob men of their
money, health and manhood? That's
what the old saloons did.
Vou don't want to license some
body to rob women and children of
lood and raiment? Th.t'swhat the
old saloons did.
The new reason (the v silly season
seems to be still on) is, that because
Stover has two saloons, all of Ver
sailles' trade is going to Stover. No
thing to it. Those who go to Stover
for a supply of red Itquur don't buy
anything else, and if Stover is getting
the trade it is because she has the
goods and makes the prices. Don't
bring us such a festering sore as
thai, "the progenitor of nearly all
hatred, crime and violence."
'Will Hy Name be Written
The Anti-Saloon League promises
to have the saloon petitions published
as soon ds filed with the county court
and if you don't want your name in
the limelights in connection with
such a dirty, disreputable business,
don't sign it. If you are a man you
can't afford to do so dirty a trick on
your friends and neighbors, the men,
women and children of this city and
