Majestic Theater. With a drizzling rain and the revival services in session, the Majestic The ater performance Weenesday evening was not very well attended at the G. A. R. hall.

Upon July 20th, 1908, just two weeks before the primary, Mr. Wells sent out a letter to the voters generally over this senatorial district. Every reader of this article no doubt received that letter. Enclosed in that letter wers some printed articles upon the situation as it then existed between Mr. Wells and Dr. A. B. Jones, who were rival candidates for the republican nomination. In that letter Mr. Wells said, "The district is large (comprising thirteen counties) which makes it impossible for me to visit all of the voters personally in the limited time that I can spare from my farm at this season of the year." This was clearly an attempt on the part of Mr. Wells to have the farmers of this district believe not only that he was an actual farmer but that he was very busy on his farm and could only spare a limited time therefrom, it being a very busy season of the year for farmers. The fact is the farming business that he then was, and is still interested in, goes on just the same whether he is home or not and the truth is, and his neighbors will say bo, that when this letter was sent out upon the 20th of July, he not only was not at home and was not home thereafter until the primary, and he had not been nome more than . day or two at any time for many weeks prior to the mailing of that letter. He was out devoting his time solely to the campaign for the nomination,, and besides being out himself campaigning he had in his employ out elctioneering the voters, nu merous paid lawyers, friends and others. Mr. Wells professes to have a pro found and deep interest in the farmers. Does not this letter and the attendant facts show that his deep interest is solely in securing their votes for himself for Senator? Look up the letter referred to. You doubtless have it around your house. When you have done that you will be ready to decide as to his purpose and intentions. It seems to be admitted, on all sides, that Mr. WellJ spent at least $3500.00 to secure the nomination from his opponent. Dr. A. B. Jones. Personal friends oi Mr. Wells have said that Mr. Wells told them that he had spent that sum of money. Can there be any condition which will justify any man in spending such a sum of money to procure the nomination to an office which has a four year term and a total salary of $300, with a small mileage added of probably $100 more thus making the whole sum which could be realized out of the office in a legitimate way of only $40d. It is the usual experience ia this life that men do not make investments of that character. Juat where he expects to get his money back is a question that ought to interest every voter, especially if he doubles this expense in trying to be elected. In this letter which Mr. Wells sent out July 20, 1908, he enclosed circulars by which he assulted his then opponent for the republican nomination, Dr. A. B, Jones of Wakeeney. by showing from garbled portions of the House Journal that Dr. Junes voted against the anti-pass law and the two cent fare law when in truth and in fact Dr. Jones voted for both these measures. Look this up for yourself. These are the methods by which Mr. Wells got his nomination and these are the methods by which he expects to- secure his election. ' Are you willing to believe everything told you by this sort of a candidate? Do you think that a man who would wilfully misrepresent his opponent to. get a nomi nation for a $100 cCce and spend thousands of dollars in dclrs so is exactly the r;"2t 2X311 to 8 intrusted with $vut business at Tcpcla? Adr.-lt (TmiiHfe TS Bishpam Concert., November, 9. Tickets to the concert will be sold at $1.00 a piece. The Normal Faculty will adopt a new method of reserving seats for this occasion. Each purchas er of tickets will receive a receipt show ing number of tickets purchased On Friday evening Nov. 6, at the Normal Auditorium, slips or cards having upon them the names of ticket purchasers and number of tickets purchased will be thoroughly jumbled together in box from which a person unable to see what card he gets will draw forth the cards one by one. Parties will reserve seats in the order in which their names come forth from the box. Any parties unable to be present at the drawing may send proxies to reserve Beats in their stead. If neither proxy nor own er of card is present members of Nor mal Faculty will reserve best seats available for such parties in the order of their card draft. This plan will avoid the unpleasant feature of having ticket holders stand In line for a long time prior to the re servation of seats and will give out-of- town purchasers the same opportunity to secure as good seats as home folks, Yocemento Road. Now that the Yocemento Cement Mill is in operation and is a success our town should do all it can to secure a good share of the trade out there and have the head men locate here for our Bchool, church and society advantages. This can be best done, and only done by: making a good direct road between the two towns with as little inconven ience as possible to those : traveling be .twees the two- places. Years ago the coqnty leased othe railroad a .roadway along both flifa.of the track through the eounty, a strip 100 feet wide. That lease is still in ex istance and rental paid each year. The present road to Yocemento cros ses the railroad track several times and winds around, which is not only danger ous but very inconvenient. A direct road should be opened from the west bridore direct into Yocemento, along NORTH SIDE OF THE RAILROAD TRACK. which would make a good roadway and stop the crossing of the track. It would be better for the people and better for the railroad company. Commissioner Brull, who lives out that way and is interested, should at once see that such a road is opened up, and as it joins his land, he can show his interest in the people's benefit by pushing it thorugh at once. If our city does not do it we' will lose lots of that trade and give Ellis a chance to open up a road and get ahead of us. Drink Hires Root keg, at Harkness' Beer out of the 23-tf !
