Republicans are making every

shown by Secretary Fisher of the
Interior Department to the pass
age of the Three Year Homestead
Bill. It was not with his assist

that the bill was passed. In fact
the hardest work congressman
Taylor had in connection with the
bill was to keep out the obnoxious
provisions of Mr. Fisher, who,
when he saw it impossible to de

it with nullifying and obnoxious
We can not too strongly urge
the screening of doors and w in
dows to prevent the. ingress of
flies, and we should be very care
ful to prevent the egress by
killing any fly caught inside the
house. A perfectly reliable fly
poison, which is harmless to hum
ans, is this: Dissolve one dram of
bichromate of potash in two
ounces of water, and add a little
sugar; put in shallow dishes and
set about. A spoonful of formalin
or formaldehyde in half cupful
of water and expose in the room
will kill all the flies. Or heat a
shovel or other article and pour
thereon twenty drops of carbolic
acid; the vapor will kill the flies.

scription with $25.

Taft Nominated.
I 4
Last Saturday night at 10:00 (
o’clock, Taft and Sherman were .
nominated for president and vice i
president respectively by the big
republican convention at Chicago,
after the jnost disgraceful pro- ,
ceeding ever indulged in by any ,
other convention of any party in
the history of the United States.
No midnight assassin, hard on ,
the hunt for blood money, ever
resorted to such a disgraceful
steal as did Taft and his national
committee when they seated in
the convention (through the com
mittee on credentials) for Taft,
delegates that were sent to the 1
convention instructed for Roose- j
velt. All semblance of honor
and courtesy were totally aband
oned by Taft rnd his crowd, and
the most riotous" disorder marked
what was supposed to be their

nomination by a gang of the I
most desperate thieves ever per

Republican Gang Seek to De
The republican gang of Chey
enne county realizing that they
are beaten to a standstill, are
urging the socialists, through the
columns of their kept newspaper,
and otherwise, to put a ticket in
the local field, the result of which
would be a great benefit to the
gang. %
Some of this desperate band of
political counterfeits are using
every means within their knowl
edge to induce the socialists to
walk into their trap, that they,
the socialists, may be certain of
destruction. When you are ap
proached by this gang, or any of
its henchmen, you may be certain
that it is for their benefit they
want to use you, and not for any
good they are going to do you.'
I They are not putting themselves
( to any cost or trouble to do good
i for anyone, much less the social
ist party. You have a fine ex
ample of their love for the social
ist party in the last city election.
Review what this gang of politi
cal butchers did to the leading
member of the socialist party in
■ Cheyenne county. When they

to draw the socialist vote to their
support by openly repudiating
their own acts and putting the
good name of Don Sears on a
ticket there was no legal author
ity for and wholly without his
knowledge or They
drew enough support from peo
ple who were attracted by the
stability and character of a man
like Mr. Sears, who, when they
realized he was going to be elect
ed, drew their knives and stabbed
him in the back by voting against
him and defeated him for a place
on the city council that they are
afraid for a man of the honesty
and integrity of a man like Don
Sears to fill.
A fine argument indeed, to try
to’placate you with promises of
their support, if you will put a
county ticket in the field. They
have promised their support to
every candidate of every party
for the last ten years. They will
pledge you or tell you anything
to deceive you. All they want
is your vote, and as soon as they
get that, you can go to work to
make ends meet the best way you
can, while they will go to the
court house and levy enough
taxes on you to support them
selves on for another two years.
It isn’t for any good that can
result to you that they want you
to put out a ticket. It’s the good
that such action on your part
would bring to them.
They know that if they can
take from the democrats the 24
socialist votes in the county that
I were cast two years ago, and
a few that might have been add
ed since, that it just lends them
that much help to re-elect the
same old gang that has raised
taxes every year and that will
continue to raise them year after
year, as long as they can remain
your masters instead of your
servants -and they will be your
masters just so long as you keep
them in your county offices and
in the court house.
