Their Foreheads Too Low.
Some few of our partisan ex

not sound like they came from ra -tional
beings. They declare that th e
Republican party is the creator of
all good things and to throw it out of
power will precipitate a return of
hard times. Such low foreheaded

Nobody has ever made a state

of its readers to the single tax
abomination, than that we believe
that if the taxpayers of Missouri
who are opposed to this iniquitous
system do not rally to a man at the
polls on the fifth day of November
next, that they will find that this
amendment will have been adopted
and will have become a part of the
organic law of the state.
Even though we should prove to
be mistaken in regard to the
strength this proposed amendment
may develop at the polls; even
thongh there may be no danger of
its adoption, it will be well for Mis
souri voters to snow it under so
deep at the coming election that
the snow fall of ballots will never
melt and that it will never again
emerge from the avalanche.

forever, so far as Missouri is con

supreme court decision outlines re

decision was a case where action

$1500 damages. The jury gave him
a verdict for that amount, and the
owner of the dog appealed to the
Supreme Court. The Supreme
Court sustained the verdict, and
said in strong words that the owner
