Only 5 cents per Pound. Also pure Paris Green at Colby so Scott a. Our Friend the enemy. Good neighbor Square business Man Bat bad democrats Cana Dian citizen of american descent. A Man was talking to me the other Day about one of his neighbors and he Aid i be would be a pretty decent sort of a fellow if he was not a Democrat. In times of sickness he was one of the Best neighbors in the world in his business transactions he was perfectly Square but when it c line Down to politics he was As Unchin Gable in Bis allegiance to party As the everlasting Billa he read nothing but a democratic paper he heard nothing but democratic expressions of opinion. If charges were made against the county officials he Only waited to hear democrats deny it and then no matter what proof could be produced to substantiate the allegations of the complainant he Woald have none of it very frequently he was one of the heaviest sufferers from the very evils that he refused to believe existed if his taxes were Little bit higher than usual he would go off and seek Consolation by a a cussing the Republican party and the Tariff. I see this same Man come to his county town. About the first men to get hold of him Ore the politicians the Mon who run the machine and in Ike and unmake tickets at their own Sweet will. They take him by the hand Pat him on the Back ask about the old woman the children and neighbors and indeed Heap so much attention upon him that the impression at once be z is him that to is a great Man. He stands a Little straighter a new Light Oomes into his eyes and the honeyed words of the politician Are More precious to him than any other offering that the ingenuity of Luau could have devised. Later on be is taken to a quiet retired place and there he is riveted to the Tail of the politicians Kite. A now look Here Bill in be always depended upon you to look after my interest in your township and i owe my nomination and election to you. Without your Aid nothing would have saved me. I feel that i can never repay you but there is another thing i want to talk to you about i am a candidate for election and the republicans Are going to make a mean dirty fight against me. They say i am not fit for the place that i have not attended to my business and that the tax payers in the county Are made to suffer because i am in office. Now you know that All such charges Are base lies not started to Hurt me so much As to break Down the democratic party. That is the thing we must guard against i will depend upon you to do the same work that you did before. There is not another Man in the township i would Trust to do it this cry about corruption is a Republican move to break Down the democratic party and that is All there is in it then again some of these Days the democratic party will want to Reward you and we must of course stand together now of that is Ever to the anxious office Holder usually does Bis work Well and by the time he gets through with a victim he has fenced him in to carefully that no Force reason can command. Is sufficient to sweep away the barriers. The Democrat from the Rural District goes Home inflated with the Idoa that the safety of his party depends upon his personal efforts and in the conflict that follows he fights us a hessian and not As a Tux payer who is anxious that his own condition May be bettered. He Only remembers that he has met one of the Bosses of his party and some important work has been entrusted to him. The thought of the charge of corruption that he has been Over taxed that Thero has been a misappropriation of county funds or bad management has never once entered his mind. It was not the purpose of the Boss that it should. He knew that his safety depended alone upon keeping from this Hack township Man the knowledge of his Short comings in office and to do that appealed to prejudice and for a time thus tided Over the dangerous Point. This Democrat wus a Good neighbor a Square Man in business but in a political Way a nonentity. He was the Creal Ore of an unworthy Man and was merely used to extend the Power of one who had he known his character he would have spurned like a Snake unless lost to All sense of decency himself. It is the ignorance of men that makes them the pliant tools of unscrupulous men und in the attempt to irrigate their minds it would appear must need have companion Force to meet the Craft of the one who impels the weaker Man to evil. And one of the most popular men la the state. Year after year to was nominated and elected state treasurer without opposition in his own party. The republicans protested Aud advocated a change but the democrats would have mobbed the Man in their party who would have appeared against him. Dick was an excellent judge of Good liquor and always knew where the Best article was kept when one of his friends from Tho Rural districts called to see him he would Pat him on Tho Back ask after the old woman and Tho Young ones crops a and after a time take him out and dose him with old Bourbon. One visit made a Man Dick taters Friend for life and As he bad held office so Long that he had drink with about All of the democrats in the state hts party could not Well help being a unit for Blin. He never give a Man time to think about his honesty or How he might be conducting affairs in his Offida he kept Bis adherents Busy thinking about How they could keep the republicans from winning a Victory while he was stealing everything laying round Loose. Or. Tate had not been a Canadian citizen of american descent very Long when his friends Dis covered that his speculation had been carried on for n Long time and that the Man whom they had delighted to Honor would have been shown up As u miserable scoundrel years before had they been willing to admit that possibly the idol of the Kentucky democracy lacked that perfection of virtue that has Only been freely and fully accorded that one Man of Nazareth. It is not the purpose in calling attention to the fall of this scion of a democratic Bouse to leave the impression that All democratic officials of this or any other county Are Dick tates. It is Only to show How men who exile intelligence and become Blind Aud unreasonable worshippers of their own kind May be duped. Hooked by conscience for their duplicity scorned by members of their own party in other sections for allowing such a Mountain to fall upon a Moss covered organization having As Patron saints a Jefferson a Jackson All men one would think who had worshipped at the Dick Tate alter would forever feel contented to Knaw a file or harness themselves to a water cart that the grave of the fallen idol might be kept Green As a Monument of their own Folly and As a danger signal to the rising generation. If you turn Over an old Board you Are sure to find some Worms under it. The Worms under the Board in Kentucky grew to such a size that Thev turned it Over themselves before it was even suspected that there were any there. Brooksville Ano Vicinity. Edited by one of the boys. A the Cherry crop Large. This year was very last week i spoke of the necessity of Harmony organization and intelligent labor of the republicans of Deli use county hoped to meet with Success. There Uro hundreds of democrats in the county who Are kind neighbors and Square business men who also ate ignorant of the affairs of the county. They now act Only when they Are prompted to do so by the leaders. They support men and measures that take Money out of their lockets and the very moment they can be made to understand what is going on that moment they will break away. The More intelligent and lib eral classes May be depended upon to act when they see the time has come to crush out the corruption lists. They know there Are Worms under the Democrat c boards in Defiance county and they want to see them turned Over. Shall it be done Noble crossing. One morning a year or two ago old Dick Tate the democratic state treasurer of Kentucky landed Over in Canada. Re was in Canada several Days before his friends were Able to locate him. They located him As soon a they discovered that the state Treasury was empty. When they crossed Over the Border they found or.
