Justice is expensive at best.
Many poor people submit to in

FALLS CITY STATE BANK
The republican party has never
had a candidate in whom it could '
take more pride than it can in
its candidate for assessor. The [
business men. and in the term
we include merchants , farmers
and professional men , have
never been privileged to vote for
a more competent , industrious
and honest man than Mr. Arnold.
Richardson County has been
his home for many years. He is
a farmer and is well acquainted
with I arm values , lie lias had
years of experience as deputy
assessor and township assessor.
Ue is of mature years and judge
ment. He is honest and fearless ,
lie has no friends to reward nor
enemies to punish. He is actuat
ed by an ambition to make a just
and capable officer. His oflice
pertains more to business than to
politics and he is essentially a
business man's candidate.

place on the street car track.
"Is this part of it ? " he said.
"Yes , sir. " answered the old wom
an joyfully : it's all of it. "
An exclamation arose to the po
liceman's lips , a laugh ran amoiif ,
the bystanders , but it stopped nt the
glad look in the old woman's eyes as
she reached her gnarled hand for the
little coin. The policeman eheckex
the half formed utterance and sol
cmnly escorted the old woman to
iho curb. The cars rattled on , the
big truck swung on its way and the
policeman stood silently nt his post
