Do You Want A Home?
Excellent opportunity for young men. Do you want a home in the great Southwest—in beautiful Oklahoma?

Mrs. Barksdale, our local reporter! and special agent, is contemplating a trip through southern Indiana and Kentucky, in the near future. She will be gone about two months. The Stork stopped at the home of Mr. and Mrs, Silas Campbell quite recently and left a pretty baby girl. In the financial report of the Pleasant Grove Baptist church they find they have raised $1,000.00 in one year. This shows the working spirit and the love and respect they have for their church and pastor. Senator Allison Is Dead. U. S. Senator Allison, of Iowa, the “grand old man,” is dead. 45 years was his term of official service at the National capital. Not only Iowa, but the nation mourns. He was born in 1829 and saw the skies painted in blood and rivers of biood flow at his feet—the sacrifice of America’s best blood for the redemp tion of the nation and the perpetu ity of her institution. The above is a good cut of Chas. S. Gibbs, cnndidate for Committee man on the Republican ticket, in the second precinct of the first ward. Mr. Gibbs is a lawyer, an orator a good citizen and a staunch Re publican. He comes from the ranks of the common people, is a union man, being a member of the United Mine Workers, and has been honored by his craft in many positions and has always been true to every trust, and Mr. Gibbs is also a church mem ber and a race man always doing all in bis power to help and encourage young men and women to higher and better things. When Their Usefullness is Ended. Some man, by name, Dr. Mayes, occupied the pulpit of St. Paul last Sunday night and proved to be a sad failure—with all due respect for him and .his sincerity, he should not have robbed the people so; people went to the church, the hot weather, nevertheless, to hear Dr. Price or auiuc mail vcmou iu uuc jovy auu me truth, but were cheated badly. We fear that this hurts the church cripples the attendance and demor alizes the race. Dr. Price or any other pastor can be courteous to such men witheut giving over their church to them. Rev. Price, we are sure, was aiming to do a benevolent act and to help the old man. We do not believe these men should ask for alms unless they are dependent. It is outrageous for every man who visits a church to ask for alms un less he is in dire circumstances. Mrs. Elizabeth Taylor entertained at an elaborate six o’clock dinner fori Mrs. Addie Brown and daughter Susie, of Chicago, last week.

We, the undersigned pharmacists actively engaged in the drug busi ness in Illinois, have had our atten tion called to a political letter re cently addressed to the members of our profession throughout the State, soliciting support of the candidacy of ex-Governor Yates. The letter was an unfair and vitriolic attack against the present incumbent, Charles S. De neen. We hereby protest against such political communications for the following reasons: We object to the pharmacists of this State being tempted into a false posi tion by Mr. George P. Englehart, edi tor of the Western Druggist, who him self is not a pharmacist, and who by being party to such an attack does not, in our judgment, further the best interests of those in the profession. We further protest against former appointees and other aspirants for of uce, ue mey memoers oi me proies sion or purely politicians, who, seek ing revenge against the present Gov ernor for selfish and private cause simply for the reason that they are not to accord with his posing as the mouthpiece of the pharmacists, are placing us in the position of having it appear that they control the senti ment and votes of the pharmacists of this State. We concede to the Western Drug gist and its editor the right to speak for itself and himself, but this same right we reserve to ourselves. We also object to purely political schem ers having no connection whatsoever with the profession, acting or appear ing for the pharmacists of the State. We protest against our being placed In such a political position that the future interest of pharmacy should be sacrificed to satisfy the ambition of any man or set of men. T. F. Cannon M. C.

Any man who is hon est enough to acknowledge the corn, will say that Deneen is the people’s servant in the strongest sense of that term. He began from the very bottom of matters of state, like a wise master builder, and has never side-tracked or side-stepped for one minute in safe guarding the interests of the people whom he is serving. If every man in this great state had the high ideals of duty, uprightness, honesty and civic decency that Charles S. Deneen has, the state could look the world in the face and continue to do so for a hun dred years to come and be proud of the achievement all the time while do ing it.—Albion Journal. Calhoun Voters Understand Noise. Since the flourish has vanished from the gubernatorial contest between Deneen and Yates and meditation given a chance, from a careful survey of the situation it is apparent that Deneen is in the lead and gaining strength.—Hardin Republican.
