THOUGHT FOR TO-DAY.
Get up right In the morning. Go
to bed right at night. Start with
joy in your heart, hope in ,the fu
ture, kindness in your purpose. If It
Is a dark day, never mind; you will
lighten It up. If it is a bright day,
you will add to the brightness. Glvo
a word of cheer, a kindly greeting
and a warm 'handshake to your
friends. If you have enemies, look
up, pass them by, forget and try to
forgive. If all of us would only
think how much of human happiness
is made by ourselves, there would be
less of human misery. John A.
The candidate's favorite song Is,
"Oil Promlso Me."
"Anything that makes capital
Idle, or which reduces it or destroys
It, must reduce both wages and the
opportunity to earn wages." Wil
liam Howard Taft.
Gov. Tenor has been asked to de
cide what veterans should be sent to
Gettysburg next July at the expense
of the state, die has promised to
recommend action by the next legis
lature. Several Philadelphia newspaper
men have been subpoenaed to ap
pear at the congressional campaign
fund committee meeting this week
to tell about Flinn activities In oth
Arizona will vote next month on
recalling the Governor who a year
ago was tho most ardent supporter of
the recall movement. Ho believes in
the principle, but Is against Its en
forcement. The ballot will not be difficult to
vote, no matter what the citizen's po
litical affiliations may be. A mo
ment's study of a sample ballot will
make It clear to any voter, and all
will have a chance to study It before
After all Is said and done, the real
Issue of this campaign is whether the
country is going to have prosperity,
with work and opportunity for every
body. A change from the known
prosperity of the Taft administration
would be a change to tho unknown.
President Taft, on board the yacht
Mayflower Tuesday at New York,
signed an executive order putting
36,000 fourth-class postmasters In
tho classified service. Tho execution
of the order will put overy fourth
class postmaster In the United States
under tho civil service, 25,000 hav
ing previously; been put in the classi
fied list by tho president.
LEST YOU FORGET.
$71,338,879. Big sum of money,
Isn't it? Nevertheless, it's exactly
Unit much more paid to tho rallorad
employes of tho United States, un
der tho administration of President
Taft In 1910, than was paid In 1907,
tho year before Mr. Taft became
President. Remember! "It's only
a step from tho pay car to tho kitch
en," and tho election of either Wil
hon or Roosevelt means empty
freight cars on tho hidings, fcliort pay
and lianl times. Don't forget 1894
and 1907 and also that a vote for
ItooMjvelt is a vote for Wilson, and
think woll before you vote on No

during a first term that ho has. This

Republican and New Age.
I do not bellevo In low wages or
cheap men. When wages are high
and when farm products command
profitable figures, the merchant finds
his business Increasing, tho factory
finds its orders enlarged and every
body is happy. It is little less than
a crime under such conditions for
teachers of the gospel of unrest to
go about tho country telling the
people why they should be unhappy,
asking them to bust the trusts and
smash the railroads, in order to re
duce the cost of living, as if there
was any other way to reduce tho cost
of living than by reducing wages
and the prices of the necessities of
life, which are mostly raised by the
farmer. I am against this policy,
and, therefore, I am against the
demagogue. Jasper, In Leslie's.
DODGING FREE TRADE.
There Is no better indication of
the growth of "Taft and prosperity"
sentiment than the recent efforts of
Dr. Wilson and other Democratic
orators to evade the freo trade is
sue. Tlrey are soft-pedalling hard
on the tariff, declaring that they
want a change, hut they hasten to
assure us that they won't change
much and that It will 'bo a perfect
ly harmless change a sort of
"change is rest" kind of change.
"Our changes won't hurt a flea,"
they say reassuringly. "Don't let
them scare you with that."
In his recent Pittsburg speech,
Dr. Wilson said:
The Democratic party does
not propose free trade or any
thing approaching freo trade.
It proposes a reconstruction of
tho tariff schedules such as
will adjust them to the actual
business conditions and inter
ests of the country.
What sophistry for a scholar like
Dr. Wilson! He knows as well as
anybody that his party and ho him
self by his earlier declarations are
unalterably committed to tho policy
" We declare It to bo a funda
mental principal of tho Democratic
party," says tho Baltimore platform
of 1912, " that the Federal govern
ment under tho Constitution has no
right to impose or collect tariff du
ties except for tho purposo of rev
enue." Dr. Wilson knows, too, that this
is free trade in so far as it is possi
ble for any government to have free
trade. Ho knows that It Is this
condition, and not sorao mythical
theory heretofore untried by tho
governments of the world, that wo
have In mind when wo speak of tho
evils of freo trade. Ho knows that
England Is called "tho great freo
trado nation" of tho world, In spite
of"tho fact that she has a tariff for
Dr. Wilson is 'hedging. Ho sees
tho hand writing on tho wall. Har
