Take jour county tickelb. and do
your best to get a decent ticket out

Iletter save this as a sample, fill it out
the way you want to vote, and take it
with ou on election day as a pattern.
The 'L'aftitcs hired a i olored gentle
man to come in and tell the Versailles
colored voters how to vote. It is '
( laimed he won over all tne weak-
kneed ones by tellin
them the C. C). .
i I', had given them their liberty. The
i old fellow, like nearly all the Taftite I
speakers, lied. How many of the,
, colored people of Versailles ever were !
slaves.-' It was not the Republican (
party that freed the slaves, Abe l.in- j
coin did that. It is not likely that j
the Republican paty of 1802 would .
have voted libeily to the colored
man; and it may be that Taft, had he
been in Lincoln's plare, would,
owing to his judicial temperament,
have left the colored man and brother
to his fate. Some stories get so an-
cient they are silly.
Du tell! They say that Maj. War
ner went over to Stover last week,
and just lairly scared the Dutci. Hull
Moose all back into the fold with a
wave of the bloody shirt, and a whoop
for the old flag and another appropri
ation. Ihey may lie that sort, we
will know when we see the returns
Do you hear the noise ot that "si
lent vote?" It sounds like the rush
of many waters, and the refrain is:
1 Teddy, we want you, not to drown
you, but to boost you to victory on
the crest of the highest wave." Vote
the Progressive Ticket.
The Taftites claim that the trusts
are all for Roosevelt. What is the
matter with Carnegie coming home
on purpose to vote for Tall ? What
about the 825,000 donation to the
Taft campaign fund by J. P. Morgan?
Of course Jonn D. Archbold will vole
for Roosevelt oh, say, when the
Taft sheets get to guessing and lying
they don't know when to stop, but
thank goodness nobody of common
sense pays any attention to them.
They will keep it up until next Tues
day, sure. Vote the Progressive

As to Concrcto Ideai.
"Kvery town suggest a conciete
ideal," we once heard an observant
citien say. "When auy one mentions
Kansas City I think of the Kun sas
City star and three or four well known
Democratic politiciaus. When I hear
Jefferson City there flashes across my
mind the image of a man holding on
to a politcal job with both hands and I
feet, while he tries to eat a piece of
stewed rabbit. When St. Louis is
suggested I think ol a barrel house-"
