O M.r.k.ll Ma., IW. 4th. 191 1. On account of ill health I will offer for sale my farm of 80 acres, located three miles south of Marshall, on the Sedalia road. This farm is well Improved, fenced with woven wire, a good six room dwelling, large barn, and all needed out-' buildings. The land is all good, there being no waste, and all in high state of cultivation. All in grass, but 20 acres, and that in oat stubble. There is a fine apple orchard and abundance of small fruit, also adundance of good water. For price and terms see Mr. A. Leonard. Mar&hall, Mo. J. F. DUNCAN tit I Y)t -.1 KMX .1 TOCmafV IJ. W I MICBBf IT JLHM UUUMjAJU s Wages in the United Stntes are $2.30 for every dollar In England The slash and drive tariff bills of the last Congress would have re duced New England wages to the level of Old England. The Hyde Juror who disappeared last week has been declared In sane. It is little wonder that n busy man goes crazy when penned up for weeks Such cases as the Hyde trial are a reflection on our courts. The farmers' free list includes foolwearfiom abroad, where w? arc from $5 to 7.30 a week against $15 to 25 in this country. Such competition would bring wages down or close American shoe fac tories up. Norwich Bulletin. Take an overcoat that costs you 132.00 weight 8 J-2 pounds, wool used 0 pounds, cost of wool 17c.

( under tnc system we now iinu those who own the trusts also own the government, hence the trusts has neither the power nor desire to regulate Itself. All attempts in this direction have been miserable failures, ns the old parties nre con troloJ by the trusts. Also living has ndvanced 35 per cent; nnd 90 per cent of theiwcnlth nt Mm U. S. has tmsscd Into the hands of 10' per cent of the people. One nlutocrat alone receives over . a million dollars income per monui. Also 81 per cent of families in our country live in rented homes. Thnt the prolltnrian or propcrtyless mnn Is rapidly Increasing; also that mul tlmllllonalres are also rapidly in creasing. Now centle reader ask any old nartv capitalist what he thinks of Socialism and he will frankly tell you there Is nothing in it for him. 'This Is the very reason why there should be something In It for you. Socialism then is the ownership of the trusts by the people for the people. To rid the body politico! of tho useless parasite, to relieve the woekers who produce all wealth of the exploiters, by means of the Initiative, referendum nnd recall. I will gladly answer all queries If anyone wishes to know more about Socialism. In contusion I will say that I am a Socialist because I believe It the only way the worker enn get Justice, and the only way to the trusts out of business.
