There is just one thing to do nnd that is for eveivbndv to get in the collar and fight the weevil just as hard as they possibly can for the, next ten days to two weeks. Drafts catchers, poison, shallow plowing, hand liickini?. evervthine .should be used. The work or fight should not be stopped but should be increased.

Democrats are convinced that Wilson is the one man who can lead the united Democracy to victory in November against the thoroughly organized Republicans. Wilson has honored the State with a clean record. He has honored the Democra tic 1- arty by making a clean campaign. Notwithstanding, there has been a systematic attempt at scores of conspiracies to defame his character, from which attacks, he has come out clean, unscratched and unafraid. If you're on the fence, get right. Vote for Wilson next Tuesday. It is a vote for unselfish, patriotic Democracy and efficient, economic government. We will be triumphantly victorious with Wilson and will have four years of Government in Oklahoma, of, by and for the people.
