template John T. Long, the expectant
Sheriff, standing with cap in hand to be
catechized by his Taurian master.
"Mr. Long do you stand upon the
Dover Platform
"Yes."
"Then you arc not a member of the
old Native American Party?"
" No!"
" You aro not a member of the League ?' '
"No!"
"And you are not a Whig?"
"No!"
" That is enough. Three oheers for
Mr. Long."

"LOOK OUT FOR FRAUD."
It is amusing to hear the repetition of
that cry, from sources accustomed to thc
perpetration ofoveay fraud possible, for
the purpose of gaiuing votes. All who
wish to vote a pure Prohibitory Ticket,
should for the purpose of saving them
selves, trouble, get their ballots from the
regular Committees.
ONE THING IS CERTAIN
He who votes a Prohibitory Liquor
I*aw Ticket, will never regret it. He
who does not, ought always to regret it.
