POMONA GRANGE MEETING.
King County Pomona Grange held
its quarterly meeting at Enumclaw,
Thursday of last week. The meeting
was not very largely attended but was
one of the most successful meetings
thhe Pomona has ever held in King
county. There appeared to be a unity
of purpose on nearly all matters, and
every member seemed to be imbued
with the spirit of strengthening the
grange throughout the county. The
Rnumclaw and Osceola granges, which
are neighbors, have not been doing
well during the past three months
and considerable effort was made to
get them in good working order again,
and we believe this will be done.
There is no part of King county better
fitted to support a strong grange than
this section, as the spirit of co-opera
tion is more fully realized here than
in any part of the county.
At the July meeting a committee
was appointed to investigate the
records of candidates for county
officers and make a report at this
meeting. The report was read but
as the members did not care to get
'nto a political discussoin the matter
Several important resolutions were
presented to the meeting and the fol
lowing was passed:
RESOLUTION NO. 1.
Resolved, That the King County
Pomona Grange No. 13 endorse the
resolution passed by the White River
Grange calling for a change in the
manual for shortening the initiatory
work, and we ask our State master
and State officers to work for this
measure before the National Grange
which will meet in Spokane this year.
RESOLUTION NO. 2.
Resolved, That Pomona Grange

RESOLUTION NO. 3.
Resolved, By Knig County Pomona
A GOOD POSITION
Can be had by ambitious young men
and women in the field of "Wireless"
or Railway Telegraphy. Since the B
hour law became effective, and since
the wireless companies are establishing
stations throughout the country there
is a great shortage of telegraphers.
Positions pay beginners from $70 to
$90 per month, with good chances of
advancement. The National Telegraph
Institute of Seattle, Wash., operates
under the supervision of R. R. and
Wireless officials, and places all grad
uates into positions.
It will pay you to write them for full
details. Opp. Orpheum theater. *

Grange No. 13 that steps be taken to
compel the electric railway lines of
the state to carry school children for
one-half fare where the fare exceeds
live cents, and that the master and
secretary take the matter up with the
railway commission and see if such
an order cannot be made.
ENDORSE FAIR BONDS.
RESOLUTION NO. 4.
Resolved. By King County Pomona
Grange No. 13 that, Whereas, King
County Pomona Grange No. 13, repre
senting the 19 subordinate granges of
King county have taken the leading
part in the establishment of an agri
cultural and edacational fair and
through this effort a very successful
fair was given during the past month
at The Meadows, and
Whereas, we believe that the first
essential of a successful fair is the
possession of permanent grounds and
realize that it is unwise to place per
manent buildings on leased property,
Whereas, we further pledge our
selves to use every effort to make this
fair an annual event;
Now therefore be it, Resolved that
we approve of the purchase of The
Meadows containing 94.3 acre and
costing, with its improvements, $280,
--000 as a permanent home for the King
County Fair, and we hereby pledge
ourselves to work for the success of
the bond issue now before the voters
for that purpose to be voted on
November sth next.
RESOLUTION NO. 5.
Resolved, That King County
Pomona Grange No. 13 still maintain
its position favoring good roads.
We, however, deplore the fact that
the three million dollar bond issue
should have been placed before the
voters until a more economical system
of road building is established and a
more equitable division of practical
road work be adopted by the county
commissioners, and we do not favor
a bond issue until the above matters
are more fully understood.
The members of tbe grange at
Enumclaw entertained the visitors
while there to a very nice dinner.
The next meeting of the grange will
be held at Orillia in January.
From this time on put the ewes that
are to be turned off this fall in good
pasture. It will give you a good race
even now to get them in shape for the
winter market; but you can do it if
you get right at it.

Of value to horsemen—Do you turn
your horses out for the winter? If
so, we want to call your attention to
a very important matter. Horses
which have been used steadily at
work, either on the farm or road,
have quite likely had some strains
whereby lameness or enlargements
hae been caused. Or perhaps new
life is needed to be infused into their
legs. Gombault's Caustic Balsam
applied as per directions, just as you
are turning the horse out, will be of
sreat benefit; and this is the time
when it can be used very successful
ly. One great advantage in using
(his remedy is that after it is applied
it needs no care or attention, but
does its work well and at a time when
the horse is baying a rest. Of course
it can be used with equal success
while horses are in the stable, but
many people in turning their horses
out would use Caustic Balsam if they
were reminded of it, and this article
is given as a reminder.
We for Tall Mr. Farmer!!
Roosevelt Can't Win
Either Taft or Wilson Will Win
A vote for Roosevelt is really a vote for Wilson, because
Roosevelt is in this campaign merely to defeat Mr. Taft and is
himself defeated. A vote for Roosevelt only enhances Wilson's
chances of success.
This is the "practical politics" side of this fight, but it has an
important bearing on the struggle. It is worth considering, for
Wilson's success in November means free trade.
Do You Want Free Trade?
You will surely get it if Wilson wins. And the tariff is the
sole issue in this campaign. Bull Moosers themselves admit that.
They do not want free trade—so they say. They claim to stand
for a protective tariff, but you can't vote for <i protective
tariff by voting for Roosevelt and the Bull Moose ticket, because
Roosevelt can not win.
Taft Stands For a Protective Tariff!!
The only way a Republican or a believer in the protective
tariff system, under which this nation has outmatched the world
in material wealth and progress, can vote his beliefs and princi
ples is to vote for Taft. Any other vote defeats the voter's own
aims and ideas.
As a Farmer, What Do You Think
Free Trade Will Do For YOU?
If you want to know, hark back to the days of 1893-1897. Or look up the
history of free trade countries. Or compare the prices you are getting for
your products now with the prices you got under the last Democratic adminis
tration in 1893-189 V. Don't imagine that government has nothing to do with
prices, business conditions or prosperity, and your own pocketbook. The re
lationship, as a matter of fact and experience, is mighty close. You will find
that out if you fool with free trade under Wilson, and you will get a chance to
fool with it if you vote for Roosevelt. Why vote against your own best in
terests? Against your own purse? Your own dinner table? Your own
family's welfare and comfort?
There Is One Safe Way!!
The Republican party stands at the sign post on Prosperity Road—stands
there now just as it has stood there for the past half century and more. That
road is the safe way. No fooling or experiment along it. It has been trav
eled. What do you know of by-paths? Vote the way the sign post points, and
you will vote for Taft, the Republican party and prosperity.
Vote the Republican State Ticket Straight!
Republican state candidates are best fitted for the offices to which they
aspire. They are entitled to your support. They are efficient, trustworthy,
clean. You can trust them with your affairs and you know it.
