Oh! yes I've hearc about the trusts,
Of how I'm being "done,"
Of how the wicked Tariff, too,
Is "robbing'' every one.
But I am working ev'ry
And maybe you, perchance,
Have noticed that I haven't got,
A patch upon my pants?
They tell me that I am a "slave"
Of "plutocratic" rule
That I should vote for Wilson, and
The party of the mule
That he will rip the Tariff up
And on the pieces dance
But, please observe, I do not wear
A patch upon my pants.
Once I was led astray 1 think
It was in 'ninety-two,
When Clevealnd ran for President
I shouted for him, too
Thought there'd be -work for ev'ryone
And wages would advance.
He was elected and I wore
Big patches on my pants.
I lost my job, and couldn't get
Another thine to do*
I walked the street and everywhere
Souphouses met any view
And there were thousands, lust like me
All fighting for a chance
To earn their bread, and ev'ry man
Wore patches on his pants.
I will not vote for Wilson no,
With him I don't agree.
As for his patty, well, kind sir,
Once was enough ifor me.
I've steady work, I have good pay,
And you may note, perchance,
I'm wearing creases now, "instead
Of patches on my pants.

first Theater Per
formance in 75 Yrs.
Spokane, Wash-, Oct. 2.—Mrs. Mar
garet Thompson of Moscow, Idaho,
•lived 75 years before «he witnessed a
performance in a theatre. When she
attended her first show in Spokane
last week it was to see her son,
daughter and son-in-law in a vaude
ville act.
Mrs. Thompson went to the theatre
on Sunday for her first glimpse of
footlights. When her children,
known to stage folks as 'Jack Wilson,
Ada Lane and Franklyn Batie, made
their appearance in the encore, they
caught sight of an elderly -woman in
the stage box. It was Mrs. Thomp
son's little surprise for ithem, for they
had not been told she would be
"How do you ilke it, mother?" ask
ed one of her "children.'' But Mrs.
Thompson was too excited to answer.
All she could do was wave her arms
excitedly and express her delight in
•It has been a wonderful week for
the aged Idaho woman. When she
grew tired of watching the players
across the footlights she wandered
back of the scenes, where fresh rev
elations greeted her- She never
seemed to tire of studying .the me
chanical effects that are a part of
stage craft. She watched the plays
and the players from the boxes and
from the wings. But more than any
thing else she enjoyed getting ac
quainted with her children as they
are in the life that is new to her.
Not the least strange part of the
affair was Mrs. Thompson's first ac
quaintance with her son-in-law, whom
she had never seen until the moment
she entered the theatre. Then she
saw him in all the shining black of
a minstrel man. She thought him
exceedingly funny, she explained lat
er, but she confieded the hope that
he would look more worthy of her
daughter when he got rid of that
"black stuff." And evidently he did
look better off the stage, for Mrs.
Thompson has been happy ever since.
There was only one cloud in the sky
that Mrs. Thompson saw that week.
She "was worried on Sunday because
it was the first time in 26 years shQ
had missed attending church.

terrific force that the men were
thrown clear of the car. The car was
hurled high and demolished.
Brown's skull was fractured, hi©
leg toroken and he suffered internal
injuries. Surgeons said death was
directly caused from a hemorrhage of

in an unavailing effort to save his
life. The accident occurred shortly
after noon.
