band for months. Sent Willis J. Ab

Teddy sentiment wherever he went,

'Willie's feet looked frost-bitten.
Even Artie Brisbane, who writes like
a plute nowadays,' wrote with chilled
tootsies, and his stuff was printed on
an inside page. Did Hearst quit be
cause he thought he had landed on
another loser? Or did T. R. begin
to look like a loser because Hearst

his ticket as a quitter.
WHAT'S THE ANSWER? The
Progressive party got more votes in
1912 than the G. 0. P. did. That in
dicated that more voters approved
the new party than the old. Why,

NOT ENTITLED TO PICK
The story is being circulated that
I was discharged from the offide of
deputy sheriff because I disobeyed
the law. I defy Hon. Mr. Dunphy or
any one to prove same. Mr. Dun
phy's excuse to me was that I was
getting all the work to do and he was
sitting around Sandusky doing noth
ing. That was not the reason that
I was removed. Why did not Mr.
Dunphy go to work? He had the
chance. , I was appointed deputy
sheriff in September, 1915, by Mr.
Dunphy and told to get evidence
against a certain person in the vil
lage of Lexington for violating the
local option law which Mr. Dunphy
admitted he could not get. The evi
dence was produced.
Moral I do not expect to pick
the roses where Mr. Thos. Dunphy
planted the bush. Abner Jackman,
