Almost Like Electing Democrat. The change from Teddy to Taft promises to be so great that we feel almost as good as if Bryan had been elected. Higbee News. And Then Add More to Them. We don't doubt but that Presi dent Taft would prefer that Teddy prolong his visit in Africa to four years, instead of two. Boonville Advertiser. Should Have Pitied the Goat. After all, it was a raw joke on the goat to make Taft a Mason "on sight." The poor beast should have a month's training for such a sub ject.- Burlington Junction Post. And Up This Way, Too.

She isn't half as big a fool as are the pin head Johnnies who go to the dances. Boonville Advertiser. No Nef roes Need Apply.

Governor Marshall, whom the Democrats have elected governor of No More Sore Necks or Shoulders. ' If you work your horses and mules in the Whipple "Humane" Horse Collar Call at the Yowell Saddlery Co. and See. Indiana, seems to be a man of the Blue Jeans Williams type. He has properly discouraged a proposition to build a $150,000 executive man sion and declares a house costing $15,000 to $20,000 is good enough for a governor.

Let all protective duties be abolished and then mine operators will be on an equality with every body else. New Factory. Does this city and its Commer cial Club hustle? Nixie.
