THINGS TO REMEMBER
We want to have a little informal
•cbat with our readers this week with
•reference to what attitude you are
going t.o assume when you go to the
polls on November 2. The time is
»hort, there only remaining a little
over three weeks until the people
of this county shall be called upon
to decide again who shall be entrust
ed with the affair of this county and

state for another two years, and the
question is, "What is going to be
your decision?" We can't help but
believe that the people of this coun
ty, like the mass of humanity
throughout the nation, are solidly
in line for progressive legislation—
for constructive legislation—and
that they are going to cast a ballot
for those candidates who are pledg
ed to uphold and protect the rights
and intorosts of their constituents,
and against the old hide-bound,
Klandpat, machine politician who Is
forced to do the bidding of the bos
ses and who it should be understood,
he is chosen to represent.
Tliu issues in this campaign have
been made plain insofar as the farm
er-labor interests are concerned.
The people have and are being fa
miliarized with every phase of th
program upon which these men who

STAVIG
BROS,
The Ix'-'iKtie ticket in this county
is made up of real, genuine man
hood men in whom the people can
entrust .their affairs with the utmost
confidence, and with the assurance
that every detail will be given holi
est and conscientious consideration.
These men are not politicians who
play the game of politics at the ex
pense of honesty and everything
else, but are men whom you your
selves have chosen from among your
friends to represent you ill the law
making bodies of the state and !o
handle your aifairs in the different
branches of state and county ad
minstration, and you know them to
be too big and too broad to be in
fluenced by sinister causes. They
are not seeking office from the
standpoint of glory, position uor po
litical ascendency, but are con
scientious individuals endowed with
a purpose and a determination to see
that their rights and the rights of
those whom they represent shall
have the full measure of their hon
est endeavors and devotion.
Keep this implanted ill your mem
ory, that in voting the Nonpartisan
League ticket you vote for men, not
political lackeys for an established
principle, not a system of deception
and campaign promises fo- human
itarianism, not physical and mental
slavery for peaceful assemblage,
not mob violence: for constitutional
rights and liberties for all, not for
the privileged few for free speech
and a free press, for equal pay for
equal work, for homes and happy
firesides, for the return of govern
ment to the constitutional form-
a people's government for equ il
rights and equal privileges, for the
elimination of the market rigger,
for a system of economics that will
assure to your children the educa
tion that is justly due them, aud for
which you have always been com
pelled to pay your share, but
through this system of injustice you
and your family have been deprived
of its many advantages and remem
ber too, that you will be voting for
the greatest fanner program ever
inaugurated by any party or society
in the history of the United States.
Surely voti have learned and"are
fully convinced by this time that for
us to attempt a betterment of the
general economic system through
the channels of either of the oid
parties is positively hopeless. Un
doubtedly you have tired of decep
tion and the double-cross by a bunch
of tin-horn politicians. Yott must
surely have become weary and worn
with lies of the professional cam
paigner. We have tried over and
over again to buck the old shell
game of the machine politician, and
in every instance have we found the
illusive pea hiding under the wrong
cover and awakened to empty poc
ke-ts, shattered confidence, personal
disgust and a sad realization that our
beautiful visions, hopes and ambi
tions have been placed in the dis
card and relogated, to the refuse pile*-..
Honestly, now, don't you believe
the time is come when we, as a peo
ple, must rally to the situation, tear
the hoodwink from your eyes and
look at the existing horrible condi
tion of affairs with a clear vision
and in the light of intelligent un
derstanding? Don't you believe it
