ABOUT THE CHURCHES
Interesting News Concerning the
Woodrow Wilson has refused emphatically to accept contributions to
his Campaign Fund from the Interests, from corrupting influences, from
any questionable sources.
He has given us, the Democratic National Committee, to understand
that he will go into the White House with clean hands or not at all.
Who Is Getting The Money
of The Trusts?
So sure has been Wilson's stand, so well known his incor
ruptible purpose, that no private interests have dared to
approach either our candidate or his committee.
We have not been offered a penny by the trusts, and
we certainly have not solicited a penny from them. The
money of the Interests is being spent against Wilaon. No
matter for whom we need not discuss that here it is now
common gossip that the money power of the nation is being
used in an attempt to defeat Woodrow Wilson.
What Is a "People's Campaign?"
We are addressing ourselves to the real freemen of
America, the upright, Progressive Voters of the country
who are doing the work of the nation and not the work of
trusts and bosses.
We realize that the salvation of every righteous cause
rests with you.
Often this cry of a People's Party or a People's President
is raised by the very forces we seek to defeat and whom we
must and will defeat. But look to our standard and our
standard bearer and decide yourself as to which is the
People's Campaign and must, therefore, be fought with the
Woodrow Wilson Has Clean Hands
Woodrow Wilson is the cleanest man in national politics
He came of illustrious forefathers, who laid by blood and
heredity the foundation of a future President through gen- ,
tration after generation of upright record.
If Wilson is to be elected it must be by clean money and
there is only one source of such money from the voters of
the country who realize the importance of having a govern
ment uninfluenced by the almighty dollar.
Wilson's hands are clean.
Will you uphold them?
How Much Money Will You Give?
How Much Can You Raise?
There are big campaign expenses to be met if we are to
win on Election Day in November. We must tell the voters
of the country about Wilson, what he is, what he has done
We must show them his record. We must show them his
platform. We must point out to them the features of his
platform which mean so much to this nation. This great
work will cost a lot of money. . We must meet the usual
heavy toll necessary to present a platform and a candidate
to a hundred million. '
Your dollar, your $5, your $10, your $20 is needed. And
don't mistake we want the man who can only afford the
one dollar. We need him. We need the woman who can
only give one dollar. We believe in this kind of loyalty
it's the kind that wins.
Let every one contribute to the Woodrow Wilson Cam
paign by the first mail. Let's have as big a fund as the cor
porations can supply the other parties. For the people are
mightier even in money than the Combtnationi when they
A Call To Those Who Will Club
No live progressive voter can do more for Wilson's cause
than to head a list with his own contribution and then to
have his fellow-workers and friends swell the total with
their names and money.
If you work in an office or factory, mill, warehouse, on a
railroad, ranch or farm, start the ball rolling. Line up the
Wilson men. Sign up as many contributions as you can,

Miss Lucy Watson was born in
1855 near Millersburg. Ky and died
at the home of her sister, Mrs. Mo
Nutt. on Sunday, Oct. 20. 1912.
At the age of 14 the deceased
united with the Christian church at
Minerva. Ky., later removing her
membership to the church in this
city. From the time of her enter
ing into the church to the present
she has been a devoted christian
and lover of the Church of God.
Her constant desire was to go to
the house of God, and she was al
ways in attendance until sickness
made her presence impossible. She
was, however, one of those choice
souls, who though absent in body
was present in spirit. Sickness de
prived her of what was to her one
of the happiest moments of her life.
The hymns used at the funeral
service were among the so.igs she
loved so well and each one indicat
ed the reaching of her soul after
All that could be done by loving
and skillful hauds was done to re

ed its victim. The end, though long
expected, came with all the pain
and sorrow of the unexpected to
those to whom she was dear.
Though unable to fill a public
place in life yet her quiet unassum
ing, patient, trustful life won for her
a place in the hearts of all who
knew her. The bereaved family
has the sympathy of a wide circle
of friends. Funeral services were
conducted Tuesday 2:30 p. m. by
